@Hello Dolly I read that line and composed almost exactly the same comment in my head.
@theotherginger I've got friends in Kettering, which is outside Dayton, so I'll pretend you're going there :)
I went and creeped on your past comments to see where you might be coming in from and I think cminor's right that you're not going to see a huge difference between outside Dayton and say, outside Missisauga (going size-wise, anyway). If you care about baseball at all, look into the Dayton Dragons. They're the only triple-A team I've seen with a packed stadium.
@theotherginger There's a handful of us here. Where exactly are you going in Ohio? The "culture" tends to vary by city and what part of the state you're in. (For example, I know absolutely nothing about farming though some stereotypes would tell you I should.)
@Mira Hey now, I'm pretty sure Bruce McCulloch is causing all that cancer.
@catparty Oof, you have my empathy. I have Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder and most sleeping pills don't knock me out. I'm hoping that it's true that people need less sleep as they get older!
@nevergiveaninch I had one friend who took us on a guided "haunted" landmark tour for her birthday and another who got a group of mid-30 years olds to play laser tag. Both were pretty great.
I think a picnic or a cookout in a park would be fun too.
Ahhh, it's late and no one's going to see this but I need to vent! I've been job hunting for mumblemumble months and finally got an offer - this is good (though I think I'm still more freaked out about officially changing careers and starting at the bottom than excited about being paid again!). However, I came home to a notice that the agency that bought the building I live in will be raising our rent $45/month and no longer providing free parking. SO. On the one hand, good thing I got a job, on the other, fuuuuuuck that. My apartment is not worth $45 more a month + parking. I love this neighborhood, though and now I'm desperately searching rental listings. Ugh.
@cminor Awesome! People in this thread - want to head over to the pin-up google group and see if we can put something together?
...Oh man, I see someone tried to meet up with people at the Winter Warmer Fest last month. I was there! I'm waving to you in the past whoever you are!
@cminor Three person Cleveland pin-ups totally work. Some of us went to a Burning River Roller Girls match last year, it was the only pin-up that actually came to fruition ( ...I think, I haven't looked at google groups in loooong time).
@Emmanuelle Cunt Large, dark towel on the bed! That's my only real tip. (Oh, that and remember to warn your bf beforehand you're having your period so he doesn't have the experience a male friend had with his gf of "oh my god, why is my penis bloody!?" Apparently that was less hilarious to him than it was to her.)
