Nice foreground guns shot! Your GF has a good eye ;)

My DD27 went to school in New Orleans and I really like visiting her there. I stayed in a nice hostel near a rough neighborhood the first time I was there. The last time I was there I tent camped in a park very close to the city that was highly populated with feral swamp-dwelling cats. Unfortunately, somebody stole a very large cargo hauler right off the roof of our vehicle in broad daylight.

NOLA is fun, been there twice now, and that’s saying something because I haven't travelled much. You should have stuck around and educated that reporter some. The world is dumber now because you’re hoarding information.

We had 1100 square feet for a family of five. I shared a bedroom with my brother right thru high school graduation. Fun times let me tell you.

Two things: Growing up in the 80s was the best. And you shouldn't have posted a pic of the back of your head. I was able to use Alan's faceback app to get a match on your face.

@cmonkey
Yeah GF says the same about Des Moines. We are supposed to get another blizzard here on Wednesday. I have no idea what they are going to do with more snow, the 2 lane streets are down to 1 lane the way it is!!

@7WB5
She's got good taste, I have better! Sorry to hear about the NOLA experience. There is definitely a crime issue down there, but I can't imagine it's any worse than Detroit, and you can handle yourself there well enough.

@MI
Yes I'm greedy with that common knowledge. I can't believe the station sent a guy down to report on it that didn't even know basics. He actually said something to the effect of "they usually just send me to crime scenes". :lol: poor guy

@Suo
Agreed, 80's rocked and kids these days....Luckily I don't have to deal with that. :P wrt to doxing, I tend to behave under the assumption anything I post online will get back to me at some point. Such is the world we live in, can't rage against the machine. The main reason I withhold some details here is because other forumites remain anonymous, so it's a thing and I wanna stay cool. I much prefer to operate in the realm of letting all of my dirty laundry air out. That way if people want to use it against me, at least it came from me directly. It has the added effect of reducing stress associated with trying to hide shit. Besides I'm an ENTJ, all of my worldviews and personal projects are known far and wide, I can't keep my mouth shut if I wanted to. :shock:

Edit: All of the being said, just an FYI to any regular forum participant who wants my IRL contact info feel free to PM. I'm always looking for like-minded folks to chat with. Or just do it Suo's way :lol:

I don't have to update my journal anymore, I'm just going to link directly to yours instead. It's much more efficient than keeping two concurrent and identical journals :lol:

One of my favorite sayings ever. Thank you Sparta. And I share your love of NOLA. Apparently we should all make a club.

@Augustus
I almost spent $20 on a thin, cheap ass tee-shirt with that logo! The only thing that stopped me was my nearly year long streak of not buying new clothes. I ended up buying some underwear on clearance when I got home and blew it anyway, what a waste!

I know a nurse who has one of those cricket machines, maybe I can make a trade...?

Oh I see, everyone is just always coming to New Orleans and not hitting me up. It's fine, I get it, y'all don't like fun. Don't come crying to me when the "I bet I know where you got dem shoes mister" guys charge you $20 for squirting hand lotion all over your Gruntens.

Thanks to my boy classical_Liberal for keeping it real and hanging out!

Hey c_L, sounds like you’re ready to mouth off to a tyrannical government and conceal your barbarous relics or something :D

@J&G
I was last in NOLA in 2013. But if you come to the Northeast let me know.

It wont be the last time! Hows your job situation, practicing what you preach? 8-)

@MI
Always that, plus the potential sexual innuendos of telling a certain someone to come take my cannon.

Man! What kind of question is that? How's YOUR job situation?

In all seriousness I need to figure out how to get out of this job and still live my life as a total slacker.

Ha! you know damned well how it is... the same, because I'm a wussy! I hold you to higher standards than me!

Seriously though, a bit of dread having to start back up the FT BS next week. I've finally been getting back to baseline c_L after the trip and a week of downtime. I actually did apply for a low-pay/skill PT job, with flexible hours. Waiting to hear back. It's certainly not worth the money if I don't like it, but I have to start trying some different stuff. I can directly compare to nursing, see if I'd rather have a brainless job for twice the number of hours PRN nursing would pay.

Man the 80s!
I’m a “last year Xer” from 1980 and I kinda like how we live in a status of semi permanent irrelevance on a demographic scale. We kinda fly under the radar unnoticed.
Everybody talks only about Boomers ruining the future and those pesky spoiled millennials, while we always get a pass.
I guess it’s karma rewarding us for having to experience hair bands and Milli Vanilli :lol:
