There was a really nice valve cover gasket DIY done by a 46er who had similar symptoms. It was coated with a foamy, slimy coating all along the underside of the valve cover caused by driving a short distance and then shutting the car before the engine could warm up. Nothing to worry about and can be cleaned easily. I'd still take the car to an indie shop and get a compression and leakdown test just to be safe.
