It's nice to live somewhere everyday people use the sidewalks to, well walk. So many suburbs people look at you weird if you walk, and you're lucky to have a sidewalk.

I was walking in Lubbock Texas, getting the lay of the land there and people kept honking their horns at me. Then I giant pick up truck pulled right up to me (as though about to run me over on the sidewalk). I then realized, people don't walk here.... and oh my, they think I'm a "street walker!"

which one, meghan, may i ask? i really love the action. and i DO prefer a walkable city..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/24/17 12:21pm northguineahills:

When I was visiting my parents, I would walk 500m to the grocery store everyday to pick up stuff (like I'm used to in NYC), and by the third day the cashiers started asking me questions as if I was homeless or something (I suppose those on break saw me walking).

@annie: I'm probably got another month of unpacking. I usually have maybe have one hour of unpacking time each evening after work, and I wasn't around last weekend. It's much harder when it's just yourself.

yes, ngh, i can commiserate, my legs tire out and i have to sit. i'm still mentally arranging the one room i have here. and i have no real view to speak of, so much for my morning light. the bulk of my boxes and luggage was the sewing kit, which has been stashed in the closet for now. my joy will be to unpack and re-sort all the fabrics and notions. are you still in fla, ngh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/24/17 12:51pm Ike:

My workplace is moving, which is a lot easier than moving my home, and others are doing most of the work, but I still loathe, dread, and despise the process. It throws everything into chaos.

My kitchen should be done by tonight. I have a view of a wooded area w/ vines, ferns, and flowers and large trees in my front yard, and only a 10 minute walk to the downtown.

I have to retetris my boxes so I can find room to put together my shelves so I can put my recs and hi-fi somewhere. Still using my smaller speakers right now.

If I won $43 million? First, like 40% of that has to go to some charity or something or else people will this you’re a jerk. I think I would donate chunks of that across cool places.

Then I would like to own land and a home somewhere cool and away from NYC bullshit. Like a nice goat farm or something. That’s about it.
  Thu. 8/24/17 1:01pm JakeGould:

If you are charitable from the get go you get less scummy folks coming at you from out of the woodwork. And you help people.
  Thu. 8/24/17 1:02pm frenchee:

MOVING AGGGH
lottery money speculation is much more fun. One thing I've been thinking about for a long time is alterna-assisted living places/housing for my generation (young boomers). If I had money I'd establish some that weren't glum. Or expensive. Pets welcome and encouraged. Probably have to be shared pets.

  Thu. 8/24/17 1:06pm JakeGould:

Actually charities I respect. And for other creative donations, I think being on the board of well established arts organizations that are not in NYC or LA would be good. Too much money thrown at the big cities.

I read about C&C in the Lonely Planet but never went there. How was it?

I'd want to find a way to use a chunk for housing or education here.
There are nearly 50,000 homeless people in L.A.now.
Moving to Santa Fe is a fantasy but probably I'd get a proper studio again and travel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/24/17 1:09pm Meghan:

It was decent. I had avoided going there by name alone, but we had to grab something before hitting the airport and we were right there. Everything we read said it was actually a good place to eat, so we did. It was your typical Thai food. Good but not amazing
Avatar Thu. 8/24/17 1:12pm geezerette:

@frenchee, right, "not glum". That's huge. (Not talking square feet.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/24/17 1:19pm annie:

if one were to put together a "retirement" housing set-up, i like the idea of a common square with satellite housing/apartments of all types. that place outside of DC to the north(?) is an idea i like. it started with retirement homes and spread to apartments and then adult-care facilities. it's an ok idea, but i like to think it should contain all generations, not just the 0ver-55 crowd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/24/17 1:21pm annie:

this apartment bldg i'm in is for the over 64 crowd, yet there are people of all ages wandering about. and beng in the heart of the city isn't so shabby either. ...

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/24/17 1:25pm Parq:

Okay, that settles it. If I had that money, I would buy Meghan $43 million worth of black licorice. After all the enjoyment she's given me, it's the least I could do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/24/17 1:26pm Meghan:

Oh my, $43 million worth of black liquorice would be a surreal amount..... and I might explode....
  Thu. 8/24/17 1:27pm Alex in Illinois:

I totally get the licorice issue. My wife and I buy the black jelly beans the day after Easter. My sister-in-law finds black licorice from around the world and shares it with us when we are all together.

I would buy a Toyota Tacoma and go to art school.

I've used licorice root in brewing. An interesting effect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/24/17 1:28pm Meghan:

People find my love of black licorice disgusting. I'll buy the bags of just black jelly beans as well. So damn good!
Avatar Thu. 8/24/17 1:28pm geezerette:

Salty liquorice is addictive all right. Also the kind that look like M&Ms but the coating is liquorice.
  Thu. 8/24/17 1:29pm JakeGould:

Licorice is great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/24/17 1:29pm Meghan:

drr.... art school is over rated. It's all about time and resources, which you would have if you were a millionaire!
Avatar Thu. 8/24/17 1:30pm βrian:

It would be fun to subsidize the re-creation of a live version of the Sat Evening Post cover. Might want to incorporate some richer colors, though.

And I'd replace that lawn grass with creeping thyme.

I would fund an Art School for Retired Goats in Tacoma
Avatar Thu. 8/24/17 1:33pm geezerette:

The one I went to forgot to talk about reality. The only post art school possibility mentioned was to immediately become an adjunct
with no experience and spread the problem.

hahaha... retired goats painting....
  Thu. 8/24/17 1:34pm JakeGould:

I would go to art school for 2 years. I’d partner with a decent art school so they could hang out with the goats and I could get my color theory in as well.

Meghan? You want them to talk about applied art? Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/24/17 1:39pm Meghan:

true! marketing and reality are all a shame if you are a millionaire! *head smack* How'd I forget that?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/24/17 1:40pm northguineahills:

I would create a music venue where I would encourage music of all genres, and I wouldn't have to worry about a profit, so no shitty compromising music. I would also donate to many music/arts collectives and charities, as well countless other charities (ie: Medicines Sans Frontiers)

Off to lunch, thanks Meghan, now I want salty licorice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/24/17 1:40pm annie:

my winnings would go to support radio stations i love. and i'd buy my kid and his girl a new car and new movie-making equipment. and i'd find tons of my favorite non-profits to help out. no strings on any of those donations at all, either. and if my son wants me to buy the house back from the bank, i'd do that.... oh the places i'd go!! i'd go to iceland by boat, the small steamer boats, not the big liners.

Far out. We're gradually removing our lawn. The first big chunk of the front yard became a vegetable garden. The next one went to cedar mulch and ground cover plants like thyme.
