« I Promise To Post A Real Update Soon, But First A Tribute to Geeks | Main | The Shit Heard Round the World »



(1) FIRST!

(2) Fuck the suburbs. Everything is all fun and games until the basement floods, the water heater breaks, the roof starts leaking, the driveway needs shoveling, the punks down the street toiletpaper your house, and lastly you realize you haven't had a good slice of pizza in 4 months.

(3) If you INSIST on going suburbia, I suggest you look south instead of north. All those towns in Westchester/Connecticut have been priced out of control. The cost per s.f. is practically the same as in the city! Check some of those towns in North or Central Jersey. Shorter commute. Maybe you can take the ferry to work (beer!)

(4) Love that you put "Weeds" on there. I've got a major domo crush on Mary-Louise Parker.

(5) We should plan another drinking night soon before you move out to the sticks.


Suburbs. Blegh. That is all.


While I loathe the suburbs, I do live in one. We have many people who trek to NYC every day for work. And I live in Bethlehem, which is 70 miles away. Actually, our house will be for sale soon (we are moving south of the Mason Dixon Line--egads!) Are you interested?

I feel your pain! We are trying to escape our painfully "charming" post-war bungalow right now too. (Of course, you probably could get a McMansion in SLC for the price of your apartment. Probably too much of a commute for you though.)


So did you see Professor Xavier while you were there? Now just wait for the post from mom.


I agree with the TheOtherCW. Next will be the post from Mom about how you could buy our entire neighborhood back home.

And then she'll recommend that you do! :D


I have a "has potential" house. It's had potential for 4 years.

I however, have no will.

Spend the extra somewhere on a house that is complete. Or stay in the city so your brain and ass doesn't atrophy.


Our neighbours are moving. Can you commute by phone, or telekinesis, or something? We need a quality neighbour.
