I'm excited but also nervous, bc I was really looking for stardust (have never read anything by gaiman) and it was out, so I picked this one up, but the intro is funny bc Gaiman says ppl either love it or hate it, and even those that liked his other works, if they disliked it, they really hated it. So, we'll see!


I personally didn't hate it, but I couldn't keep the interest to keep going bast the first few chapters either. There was nothing "wrong" with the book, but I couldn't get into it. I might try it again at some point.


Good to know! I have had a few experiences w books that it took a few chapters to get into it, so I will try to get past that point and report back...but I wonder how you will perceive it if you do go back and get past those chapters

That's cool, take your time! I just wanted you to know I was waiting to move on :)


I finally got it yesterday and I had a test today and an essay due tomorrow so it's sitting in my car neglected.

It doesn't have to be that way. On a biglaw salary one could afford a pretty nice apartment In certain neighborhoods, once student loans are paid back. Financial district is an example- not the most lively neighborhood in the evenings, but getting better, and at least you're in manhattan. If you were willing to go out to LIC your options for housing are pretty good too.


Yeah. Still avoiding NYC if possible for Biglaw, but I won't ignore it irrationality. I would rather be in Chi/DC or possibly even Philly or Seattle, but I'm not 100% against New York or anything. I was born upstate in Pleasant Valley and still know people there.

Also, raider I'm glad it was a turtle & not a rattlesnake you found in the golf cart. They're everywhere in that part of the state

I found one of those on hole 6 and accidentally ran over it in the summer. :shock:


peppermint wrote:Rattlesnakes are so fucking terrifying. One of my friends found one in her kitchen one day and was bit. It was really scary. Can't believe we actually have the Rattlesnake Roundup in town, like who would want to go to a festival celebrating rattlesnakes and be around them voluntarily? Crazy ppl, that's who.


My grampa used to shake his metamucil bottle in a very specific way at us and ask "You know what that sound is girls? *pause* It's a rattlesnake just before it strikes." After the first couple of times he did that we always would remember. We live in Western WA not the desert but I feel it was a mixture of teaching us caution and pulling our legs.

My grampa didn't have stuffed animals as a kid he had a thick metal piggy-bank shaped like a grizzly bear standing on it's hind legs with blood red painted eyes.

This is my grampa who grew up in rural Colorado and then moved to Southern California in a covered wagon.

The book I pq'd has a great blog! I just do better sometimes with having the book in hand, and some of the newer ones have anecdotes and they're pretty? Plus, I tend to read recipes online and then forget them or read so many recipes I don't end up cooking anything. idk, i like books.

scooped!

How do you read so fast!? it takes me at least a week to finish a book.


same...i have moved it up to possibly 1 per 1-2days, but i don't think i could ever read 4 a day! So, peppermint you're basically saying that RC is a breeze, right?

also, would you (and pepper) consider pm'ing me some of your favorite recipe/foodie blog links? (Keeping in mind, I'm no sioux chef like you guys, so nothing crazy sophisticated yet)...I am more likely to try an online recipe if someone I know has tried it and liked it

Why the hell do law schools send so much goddamn mail? All this information is on their website. This is not environmentally friendly at all :x

I had a school text me today. Need to fix that option.

With all this talk of books, I might reread some Vonnegut. Maybe The Sirens of Titan.

that is weird! I had never heard of it, I was just looking to pick something up by him, since I assumed I'd like his stuff, so we will have to get started...and that might require me to get off the internet, lol

Especially unsolicited stuff which goes straight to the trash for me...such a waste

the blog that helped me most when I was first getting really into it was foodwishes.com. he makes simple video recipes and the camera is on the food the whole time so you can learn a lot by watching him. He also does a lot of demos of bsic techniques that re adaptable in a bunch of different ways. Other than that, my method is to google whatever I feel like making and read half a dozen recipes and combine pieces from each that sound good (or just pick one).


Thanks! Yeah, I have done this a lot, but most of the time I give up bc I'm missing some key ingredient to the one I think I'd like the most, but mostly I think i just need to really cook a lot more often to get more practice and build up that skill! I'm a really confident baker, not that everything i bake looks pinterest awesome or anything, but it always tastes great...i just find it easier to ad-lib w baking...but, i want to get to that point w cooking too

eta: thanks pepper!
