Riding the train with clear sinuses when someone farts is only exceeded in heorim if it is cold and wet outside. Wet wool coats and farting passengers are the quint-essence of urban living.

I just bought my first ever new computer. The one my husband handed down to me was a pig in a poke. I got estaimates on what it would cost to fx it and they were coming in at 3+ hours of tech time.
I bit the bullet and bought a Dell Inspirion ST with 4GB RAM and 500 GBhard drive storage, an MS Office suite and security program and a warranty and phone support.
And I brought it in at teh price point I set. Yay me!

The only downside is that it has Windows 8 and MS Office 2013 and I am used to 2007.

It was a system devised by humans for use by humans . I will figure it out.

I feel like a big kid

Yeah, and this was something I hadn't noticed or thought about AT ALL and suddenly, I want pasta like I'm on death row. Right now the craving overrides the wistfulness.

Wheeelp, my SIL and her boyfriend came with some news this weekend--they're engaged.

I'm pensively happy for them. Told them to take it s-l-o-w. The fun part for them will be breaking the news to my MIL tomorrow.

One post I read from this dude a while back was this drooling thank you to his girlfriend at the time for going with him to one of the twilight movies and going on and on about how awesome it was.

And actually, upon further review, I did not go to HS with him. We went to elementary school together. He went to a different HS.

He probably noticed you liked the fan pages for Beverly Hills 90210 on facebook and Ethan Hawk and sought you out as a kindred spirit.

He may be worth keeping around just for the entertainment factor, if he doesn't post too often.

Oh good! The Chicago police won't respond anymore if your car has been stolen or your house burglarized! Guess they can't be bothered with such nuances.
