If you're in Chicago, please don't feed the hipsters.  The minute you do, three months later my rent gets hiked up from gentrification.  If you insist on feeding them, ignore this article's advice and stick to feeding them in wicker park, bucktown, and other such places.

Aren't cities like Austin and Portland built for these people?  I didn't know why we have to deal with them.

This week alone I have been 'Densie' at least twice (different people) and Demise makes a regular appearance as well.
Yes, Deinse.

I always get "Rafael" instead of "Raphael". I even got "Rafhael" once, that isn't even a possible combination.  :mad:

Setting up the Kindle app on my new phone informed me that I have 970 archived items in my library.

Even if I am consistently reading one a week, it will take me 20 years to clear that backlog. Without even factoring in all the other books I have. x_X

No idea. I buy from Amazon as a matter of course, because I have a Kindle e-reader and a Fire tablet, but the vast majority come either greatly discounted or free altogether.

Actually in this case, you made your own non sequitur.

How hard do you actually try, when you try to do things?

Thanks

I feel like Stephen Spielberg did all of us a huge disfavor, in filming the Star Wars trilogy.

The true memorial day they.don't want.you to know about.

The dark side and the Empire were misaligned by corpro-oligarchic republican historians and their Republican science! The Empire will rise again! We have nothing to lose but our chains, Sith of the world unite!

I dreamed there were crocodiles at the local pond. The kind of dream that lingers. So I have been shaking my head and reminding myself all day that there are no crocodiles in an English park pond.

But have you checked every pond?

There's a pond about two blocks away from us that has an alligator in it. Apparently the property owners have been feeding it for years. My sister- and brother-in-law, who are building a house on the next parcel, are not pleased.

From here:

“I went to Columbia all they were trying to teach us was Marx, as if I cared. I cut classes and stayed in my room and slept in the arms of God … I was … more fit for Holy Russia of 19th century than for this modern America of crew cuts and sullen faces in Pontiacs.” - Jack Keraouac (from Desolation Angels)

It is a rare thing for it to be too hot to sleep in the UK, but tonight's the night.

My mother was born in 1/6/66 and some officer in the registry who got his name printed on her birth certificate was called Apocalyptico or something like that. True story, I'd post pictures if I had them handy. Too good we're not superstitious, but this scrivener must have scared some families terribly on this month.

Sounds like she needs to start using the US date format, so it would be 6/1/66.  :p
