@dtowngirl I know a few people who have done this. One was an investment banker, even! They are all much happier now, if a tad less flush with cash, but the happiness is definitely what matters more. Everyone I know that has done it has gone the Master of Arts in Teaching route and done a 12 or 15 month program.

@honey cowl That might mean you have to take a bleach shower, but maybe not? I am doubting very much that Chris read any of Choire's book outside the amazon synopsis, so you might be ok.

On What I've Been Up To

OK I discovered yesterday that ChrisRoberts@facebook did an amazon review of Choire's book, and it was typically Chris. Then I discovered that he has given something like 250 books 1-star reviews, and zero books 3 or 4 or 5 star reviews.

@Sea Ermine Oh God, if that's the kind of content the editors are putting out there, I'm sure they are completely mortified by all of this.

@fondue with cheddar I also had Fashion Plates. You're a fashion plates fashion designer. You're a fashion plates fashion designer! (Hopefully somebody gets that)

@causedbycomma That was Fashion Faces. They were from the people who brought you fashion plates, and they just exchanged "plates" with "faces" and used the same theme song, even though it didn't really work with the extra syllable.

@Mira On it! I will just ask one of my high-powered lady friends in the financial services sector, of which I have many because let's face it, women hold basically all the positions with power and monetary influence in this country, so $6.5mm is kind of a cake walk.
