I love the Lack. I spray painted mine aqua. And yes, I got it from the group home I lived in post-grad school.
@MuffyStJohn Sing it.
@josiepagne +1. Media mail is the best and you can't beat the price. Just make sure you only have books in those boxes.
@chnellociraptor yes! Theatre taught me so many life skills.
Cheating. But then, I also consider any Thanksgiving with fewer than 10 attendees cheating. I think it's important that the meal take place in a home rather than in a restaurant. I think that matters more to me than who prepares the food.
I wish platonic life partners were more of a thing. Back when I was single I would've loved to be one with my (also lesbian) BFF or with my other (gay male) friend. Think of the life improvements!
@ronswansonluva Timelines are flexible, but that doesn't stop some of my coworkers from feeling like they're rigid enough to warrant 11:15 PM emails. I've stayed seriously late for a project twice, and both times it was because of a project I was working on for the deputy head of my agency.
God bless the federal government. I will leave at 4pm today, and tomorrow, and every foreseeable workday after that, unless I decide I want to stay late, in which case I get compensatory leave. But they basically can't make me stay late. Actually, screw the government. God bless my union.
Wait, can you please talk more about moving to be closer to family? I'm curious. Also, do you actually like Northern VA? It's just hard for me to imagine anyone moving from Brooklyn to Northern VA.
@coastalelite THERE ARE ALMOST NO LIBRARY JOBS. I wanted to be an academic librarian until I realized it was bullshit and also impossible to get. Oh, and if you are a staff person in a library and want to move up, the class difference between the two will prevent that. Get another degree. Unless you can't live without being a public librarian, get another degree.
