Darien Lake! I lived close enough that we only stayed in the hotel once, and the only thing I remember about that stay is my sister, so excited to get to the park, running down the hallway full speed straight into a fire extinguisher.
I grew up in Buffalo, too, and THAT IS THE DREAM. Move back, bring jobs, live comfortably. Except with me it'd be an ice cream/brewery/weck business. Not that the city has a shortage of any of those. The block print is lovely!
@drydenlane Really. I get that reaction (“GIS? Google image search?”) quite a bit.
I'm a GIS Specialist, but I usually just say "cartographer" because if you aren't geospatially inclined it just sounds like I do google image searches all day.
@bgprincipessa He said he couldn't afford to eat out but was hungry, and that it wouldn't be a big deal. Like I wouldn't miss my sandwich! This was not a terrifically high-paying job, but it was not, like, near the poverty line or anything. Entry level professional job. Dude could buy bread and veggies and lunchmeat like I did, he had options other than the sandwich clearly labeled with my name. I am a pretty quiet person at work so I guess he thought I wouldn't say anything? But I LET HIM HAVE IT. The whole office heard and it emerged that it wasn't a one time thing, he was habitually dining out on his coworkers' packed lunches. He never could look me in the eye after that, which was pretty satisfying.
I caught someone eating my sandwich once, it was a cube farm so I just walked around until I found evidence. I figured I'd find the container in the trash or something but instead found the dbag mid-bite and shamed him REAL LOUD then demanded he buy me a lunch. He didn't, but the loud shaming was worth it. It was a really good sandwich. [pours out 40 of mustard]
Thursday One Thing is pretty much the only reason I end up doing anything loathsome and otherwise avoidable. Today I went to the post office AND made an eye doctor appointment! Tomorrow I will resume doing nothing.
Cookie cake! Easy and sprinkle-friendly.
Unfortunately no one has answer as to why this family hung up their Christmas lights before Thanksgiving Not sure why that would be an issue, Australia doesn’t celebrate American Thanksgiving.
@Laurabean My personal best 5k time is from a race where they handed you a beer as you crossed the finish line.
