Heh.

Well, I went to school in Pgh, so I stayed on campus. Then moved to Friendship, then when a bullet came into my bedroom (while I was out), we moved to Squirrel Hill. Then I moved up north to McCandless, then across the hill to Wexford, then bought a house in Ross. So basically, I've lived in three neighborhoods, since anything north of the city is on nebulous blob called "The North Hills" until you get to Cranberry township.

I don't think anyone would fault me for moving out of Friendship when I did. It's a *much* nicer area now, but back in the mid 90's... not so much.

Yes, I know. I used to live in Pittsburgh, once upon a time (Mt Lebanon). My little one still lives there with her mother.

Of all the places I have lived - and that's a lot: 3 countries, 3 states, 9 cities - Pittsburgh's neighborhoods, particular it's ethnic enclaves, were more insular than almost any place else.

Hence my amazement they let you move.

I grew up in a fairly crowded suburb, and am happy to be in a more rural area. And, knock on wood, in a few months I'm going to be in an even more rural (hilltown) place. I like quiet, and I'm really looking forward to being somewhere with an actual sense of community. I'll miss my fab next door neighbor, though, who showed up at 9am this morning on my front porch with a pan full of waffles.

The idea of having to live my entire life next to the jackass kids I grew up near, though, makes me shudder.

You just have to stay at the next place long enough for them to catch up to you. Media mail, it is a bittersweet thing.
I <3 media mail! My mother was a librarian and when I left for college, moved out and then went at life alone, she still sent me books. We relied heavily on media mail since I was a military brat and they were in Germany while I was in college in the US for what really amounted to the first time in my life. I'd only spent maybe a total of 5 years total in the US when I was very young. 2 years as an infant and 2.5 years from 4-6th grade. I didn't get to bring a whole lot from home and I needed my books!

I consider these rhetorical questions, responses unnecessary.

1995, like 1982, is a state of mind. As long as you can still hear Coolio's Gangsta Paradise in your heart, and remember episodes of Batman: The Animated Series or Beverly Hills: 90210, you carry 1995 with you wherever you go.

ah, teej, no crappy mondays! I'm sorry.

I can still hardly move. Moving is hard work for a fat girl. And I haven't even moved yet. Advil cocktail: here I come!

Did I also mention that the magical moving will also involve having my girl kitty cat fixed? My sister got a huge-o tax return and is funding the endeavor. I am so thankful. Now kitteh will be out of the way while we move, and under anesthesia when she is brought into the new place. I will make the bathroom a friendly kitty place, with her toys and her blankie and probably a couple tshirts of mine, so she has familiar smells around her.

Where were you 6 or 7 years ago?

Seriously though, I doubt I'd be rereading my Forgotten Realms and Dragonlance collections nor my old Nancy Drews. Well, maybe Nancy Drew.

Nagel was a god. I still can't believe the guy died at 39, he had so many more years left in him. And what a way to go.

Oh well, he left us with this:



That's gotta' count for something.

beleive it or not... don't think I've seen that one!

And Nagel's death just proves that exercise is dangerous.

I hope he'd think that was funny.
