Find Your Spot

I took the Find Your Spot Quiz to see where it recommended I live. It's only for the US though.

Portland, Oregon
Medford, Oregon

Husband Guy and I drove through these two cities back in 1994 when we went down to San Francisco to meet with a bunch of friends. Husband Guy was just "Boyfriend Guy" back then... Those cities didn't really jump out and shout "LIVE HERE" to me...

Washington, District of Columbia
Baltimore, Maryland

I have family and friends in this area, so this might be do-able.

Little Rock, Arkansas
Oakland, California

Oakland, maybe. But Arkansas? I thought I said I wasn't religious and I could really only live with a Buddhist community...



    it doesn't seem fair that people who cannot afford to have paid accounts are left "out in the cold" with things like fast servers or search directories
Excuse me, but if you can't afford a $25/year payment, then I'd say you have bigger problems to worry about than the slowness of the LiveJournal servers and no search directory. Like EATING, maybe?

And who says you're SUPPOSED to get anything for free anyway? How can people not understand that GETTING FREE STUFF IS A BONUS?

I've been an income-less student before. I know what that's like. Lining up for hours to use one of the dumb terminals at the 20-machine lab in the University Library that connected at 1200 baud to e-mail for half an hour before the lab monitor kicked you off, was a privilege.

I'll spare the stories about walking 50 miles to a non-heated school with snow up to my chin, nothing but newspapers wrapped on my feet, uphill, both ways, and sometimes being chased by wild Black Bears. =D
