Where do I start? Where does it end? Do I share an awesome tweaked recipe for brisket? Do I go into detail about my stupidity? Do I carry on with more pride than 10 people deserve like every other idiot who ever managed to procreate?

Life is for the living. I'm still alive.

it was good, wife made a couple friends it seems, inadvertantly got job leads for child care (which she wants to get out of and we both agree on that, so I was sort of perplexed at how she was discussing what she did for a living with people, but we got that sorted out later.

QUESTION: is "often" pronounced "offen" or "of-ten"?

Even though it's work, I'm gone soon, so I'll post it in public.

Print Story so we've found an apartment

a two bedroom in a three-unit building, very modest price, it has a basement, it's 2.2 miles from the stats building and is right on a bus route (that goes directly to the stats building). so that's taken care of. The only downside is that, while it has washer and dryer hookups, it does not have a washer and dryer. I suppose we could buy at least a washer, but that's inconvenient to do either way. We're hoping to move only one more time while we're settled here, hopefully we won't move out of this place, but there's always the chance that things won't work out or we want something else, you know?

So I'll quickly retype. PSU invited me to their information day. "This invitation is extended to applicants with offers or high on our waiting list." I don't have an offer, so I presume I'm high on the waiting list. They're my top choice, so if I get accepted there, I am definitely going.
