I like how the one on the right looks like Muttley from Wacky Races!

Muttley you snickering floppy eared hound / when courage is needed you're never around! Those medals you wear on your moth-eaten chest / should be there for bumbling at which you are best!

I'm a Digger fan. I even have a vintage Digger lapel pin that I wear when I want to look extra classy.

A brilliant bit of journalism: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-02-29/wall-street-bonus-withdrawal-means-trading-aspen-for-cheap-chex.html

Quote
The malaise is shared by Schiff, the New York-based marketing director for Euro Pacific Capital, where his brother is CEO. His family rents the lower duplex of a brownstone in Cobble Hill, where his two children share a room. His 10-year- old daughter is a student at $32,000-a-year Poly Prep Country Day School in Brooklyn. His son, 7, will apply in a few years.

“I can’t imagine what I’m going to do,” Schiff said. “I’m crammed into 1,200 square feet. I don’t have a dishwasher. We do all our dishes by hand.”

He wants 1,800 square feet -- “a room for each kid, three bedrooms, maybe four,” he said. “Imagine four bedrooms. You have the luxury of a guest room, how crazy is that?”

The family rents a three-bedroom summer house in Connecticut and will go there again this year for one month instead of four. Schiff said he brings home less than $200,000 after taxes, health-insurance and 401(k) contributions. The closing costs, renovation and down payment on one of the $1.5 million 17-foot-wide row houses nearby, what he called “the low rung on the brownstone ladder,” would consume “every dime” of the family’s savings, he said.

“I wouldn’t want to whine,” Schiff said. “All I want is the stuff that I always thought, growing up, that successful parents had.”

Looking for a place to live is hard.  There's so many different kinds of places you can live.  How am I supposed to know where or what kind of people I want to live with?

I kind of want to move into a cheap, temporary place for the summer and prime my friends for moving into a shared place for September.  Moving is expensive, but if I save money that's okay in the end right?

Well, I have some sense of "where" I want to live, as in, downtown Toronto.  But more like "where" as in "man Little Italy is cool but anywhere north of Dundas and east of Bathurst in that area is kind of awkward to get to my school to" and "I don't know if I really want to live in Chinatown" and "Roncesvalles is so rad but 45 minutes is a far way to go if I want to invite people from school over for a beer".

Being able to invite people in without having to think about it too much would really improve my social life.  This also means I want a place with a living room, right?  I might be a kitchen party person but hanging out in the kitchen all the time might be weird with roommates.  What if they just want to make some tea in their jammies?  But I really like hanging out in kitchens, so ideally I would like a place with at least a table and some chairs in the kitchen.  Living room and kitchen combined would be cool too. 

Oh but look there's a cheap room in a rooming house.  Can I live in a rooming house and just take over the kitchen?  Is that rude?

All my life I have had a hard time inviting people in because I am too considerate of the other people I live with.  I feel like I just want to live in a social communal house without communal meals or too many hippies and without people who stress if I don't leave my room for three days and might be dead.

I am camped out until at least 6pm in my dept's building on campus, with Calliope, because there are severe tornado warnings. My apt doesn't have a basement I can access, and a bunch of other grad students (and some of their pets) are here too, so it's sort of weirdly fun too. Callie seems to be doing pretty ok, considering. She's just chilling on my desk for now, but later she'll go back in the carrier when we have to go to the tornado safe zones for a bit. Apparently regardless of tornados, we are going to have 70 mph winds and heavy hail. Fun fun.

Crazy! I could see how that might be a little fun & exciting in addition to being a pain in the ass, though. I hope Calliope isn't too stressed. 

We're also sort of in the path of it, but in typical Oxford fashion, it's been mostly Drang and little Sturm. They've been blaring the goddamn sirens every twenty minutes or so for the last two hours, even though we're just under a general tornado watch until 9pm. It seems like most of these heavy weather systems only graze this town, for whatever reason. Even Velcro seems unconcerned, and he's usually the first to freak out during storms!

She is doing pretty ok, given the situation, just chilling on my desk for now. She looks a little wtf is going on, but I think since right now it's just us in my office, she's ok enough. Will be less fun for her when/if we go to the basement and there are dogs around, but hopefully if we do, it won't be for long.

Apparently the warning has been extended to 9pm. Good thing I have a stash of research snacks. And that I brought some vodka when I went to get the cat.

Shit I think that's the alarm. Time to go!

Oh man, I heard about those storms in your area from one of our customers who is in the area. Apparently there's stuff like that all over Kentucky and lots of Tennessee. We had something like that a couple summers ago where I actually couldn't get out of my neighborhood for a few hours because of so many downed trees blocking roads. With the super mild winter I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot of crazy severe storms this summer.

Tornado warning is over, back to alert. That was anti-climactic, but I guess that's a good thing. Callie was pretty chill around the dogs downstairs and only hissed a couple of times when they started getting close, but otherwise just hung out in her carrier and got lots of petting. I also drank a shot of apple flavored vodka which reminded me why I'd never do such a thing in non-tornado warning times. We are staying here for a little while longer since the area is still on alert, but will head out by 8pm most likely.

Oxford got hit really bad a few years ago, though, so I understand the overly cautious approach.
