Seriously, who are these awful people? "Too cool to deliver." Blurgh. Is there a hangry equivalent for angry+depressed?
@Sam B Harkening back to Logan times here, but I definitely have some "well, the human world will probably end by then anyways, sooooo . . ." thinking when it comes to long-term financial goals.
@Erica I was just getting ready to say that I spent next to nothing, then remembered all the shows and festivals.
I love this series. Maybe next time we could hear from a creative person without a financially stable SO?
@ThatJenn This is how I feel about my small city (though I live in the country just outside of it). I am both super conflicted about and super protective of West Virginia and all its corrupt, mountainous glory, but I really love Morgantown, which has everything I want in a city. My parents occasionally try to talk me into moving to Boulder, where they live, but my quality of life would be nothing like it is here, where I can afford land and a house and vacations and good beer.
@TheDilettantista I grew up in eastern NC and my brother and his wife lived in Durham for years. They were able to rent a house with a yard for their dogs and just generally had really great QOL. His job took them to bigger cities and they've never recovered their QOL.
@ThatJenn Bingo! I have my fingers crossed that I'll get to be one of those "healthy, healthy, healthy, dead" folks, but the reality is that most of us will face a long decline in physical health and ability.
I made a Kindle cover last week using this tutorial (http://whip-stitch.com/kindle-cover-tutorial/) and it came out great! It took about an hour and I was able to use supplies I had on hand. If I had to buy everything for it, it probably would have cost about $5.
I fly Pittsburgh to/from Denver a lot, and love that I have a larger-than-life Franco Harris statue on one end and an evil blue stallion with glowing red eyes on the other.
I was trying to write something about how much we'll miss you and it kept coming out like a generic card for a departing coworker. I'll miss your voice here so much more than that!
