I moved the small stuff myself going from condo to house and had the movers do the furniture. I had about a month overlap of teh 2 places, too, so it helped that I could do it little by lettle. The 2 pleaces are only about 5 minutes apart, too.

The day I moved, the cable guys came over in the afternoon and couldn't believe I had moved in just that morning. My dad had even hung the paintings and clocks already. Looked like we had been living there already!

My MIL has apparently FINALLY taken to gutting SIL's room at their house. Guess what she finds in SIL's closet? Again, spoiler alert, this is gross. Multiple pairs of underwear with used maxipads still attached! Ta daaaa! We have a contender for Hoarders. Just...couldn't be bothered to wrap those up and put them in the garbage, we'll just chuck the whole mess in the closet.
And, their house smells like smoke and cat so much that the smell of...that...was not even noticed. Awesome!

That is so over the top, it makes me think your SIL might need legitimate therapy for something. I'll bet you're glad YOU didn't find that in YOUR house.

So help me FSM, I'd have taken a flamethrower to the room. Probably with her in it.

Playing devil's advocate, the kid did start her period at nine frigging years old, and her room has never been cleaned at that house, which is more of a parenting fail than anything. Not excusing her, because that's gross as hell, but I don't think it was 14, 15, 16 year old SIL doing that. More like 9 or 10.

Aaaahhh! So they're used pads from TEN YEARS AGO? In a way, that's even worse.

Well, at best they're 2.5 years old, since that's how long it's been since she's lived there. At least I can sorta justify that 9 year olds are generally gross on principle.

Aw, sorry your mom died, Matt,b ut she was freakin 94! That's old! Good for her!

I once wrote a nice letter to Matt back before the Simpsons were on the air, and he sent me a bunch of free stuff.(This was in the days of his "Life is hell," "school is hell," etc.)

Ok, I gotta change the subject.

I know next to nothing about hockey, but I know that it is a really physically taxing sport. This guy amazes me.

Sounds like a question for Loose Canon, right?

I would think the blood would just dry up. Thinking about the times they find old blood in crime scenes on TV. No that's not real, but...

IIRC, we paid about 30 bucks to get in and then played unlimited video games for 8 hours, breaking for lunch to eat at Ed's. Not really a good business model on their end, affordable fun for poor college students.
Maybe I'm not understanding you, but it sounds like you're saying it was a bad business model in the sense that they were not making money cause they were not charging enough and that $30 is a bargain. I think that's crazy. I think that's a lot to charge. The way I see it, not many people are going to go spend $30 to play video games if they have to play per game. To me, you get more people in and paying $30 with the promise of unlimited play. Certainly more people that would pay $30 a la carte.

I have no idea where in Chicago your Disney Quest was, but ours is at Downtown Disney, which is in the middle of Disney's own entertainment/nightlife property(Cirque du Soleil, House of Blues, Planet Hollywood, lots of restaurants and shops, huge movie theater, bowling alley, hot air balloon, boat rides(and that's just some of the stuff on 1/3 of the property. Lots of tourists. Free shuttle buses and boats to and from the Disney hotels. I'd bet more people would think less about dropping $30pp for this kind of thing while on vacation than they would for a local attraction. I only went cause I had free passes.
