Ty for having a sense of humor about this. Could have been ugly if you hadn't. Joy!
I would never live in the bay area again unless MAYBE it was Berkeley... My personality changed 180 degrees in 2002 and I moved out of the bay area around that time, starting with Davis. Davis I could see myself going back to. Then from Davis in 2003 to now I have lived in a variety of sh*t holes, some less shitty than others of course. Living with the buffalo was pretty much a dream except the rent was like 90% of my income and no, I don't know how I managed to survive that...lots of trips to the food bank. At least here there is copious amounts of sky and trees and stuff to watch
you know I enjoy dark humor and glimpses of brutal reality...
also..I get what you mena..
I am missing MN...I liked it there a-lot..but the weather..THE WEATHER
We are stuck with our lease for another year, but then want too move inland, a bit..towns like, Tracy, Brentwood, and Livermore have come up. I also like Freemont(my son's homeschoole, charter school is from out of there)..which is more south, and a tiny bit more calm..I kinda hate Hayward, have to say..in spite of living on the hill, and the awesome view..the town, itself, seems..not worth it..plus..SO fing expensive (for a migrane? Which driving in this town gives me. I think..I want.. NOT)
