Oh holy balls, you're right, and it is perfectly timed for UofC O-week!
On Loose Change
No one has said yet that this is beautiful! This is beautiful.
Hello, Hyde Parker!
@EH HP is lovely, and cheap. But when I graduated the University of Chicago, I moved out. Four years was enough.
@Lily Rowan I was accosted by Save the Children in an AIRPORT, and I snarled "I hate children!" So, uh...yeah.
@polka dots vs stripes I can't even fathom getting good advice from people who, in my case, last encountered the job market in the 80s and haven't looked at it since. "the recession 80s!" my mother says pleadingly. But my dad works in big oil, and I'm a museums student, and so my mom's objective advice is to "get another undergrad degree, that'll make you look good for grad schools!" ...
As far as people who wonder where this "conventional wisdom of not giving people money" is coming from, I grew up believing, and still reasonably believe, that this is true across the board. I live in Chicago now, and am always a little surprised when panhandlers on the CTA actually get cash out of people.
oh yikes, yikes yikes yikes.
@Komura Hey now, 365 brand soymilk is tasty and only a block away from me, wheres Silk soymilk is 10 blocks away and slightly less tasty. The price points are comparable, too, so it's not like I'm being wildly hedonistic. But yeah, it is a silly place...
@AitchBee A WHOLE CLASS ON SEX! *clutches pearls* Oh, Moms.
