    On Thursday my husband and I closed on buying a house! Never thought I’d be so excited to be broke after the down payment, closing costs, etc. but I own a house! It’s about 10 houses away from the rental we’ve been living in - down the street and around the corner - which is great. It’ll make...

    This year’s D23 March Madness style bracket vote off has been announced. I suspect most people remember last year’s surprise upset when Figment knocked out Maleficent in the Dragon semifinals then went on to beat some Dinosaur for the overall win. This year the theme - building off Figment’s...

    PSA: Avoid the word “co-op” with PayPal

    A general public service announcement: avoid using the word co-op (or perhaps it is Santa?) with PayPal. A co-op was arranged here on the forum for the Letters to Santa pin set.

    Hey I’m more than a bit stressed today and could use some good vibes, perhaps for my husband, more than myself. He started having abdominal pain off and on this weekend that got pretty bad and constant rather than off and on last night. I’m a college professor with only Monday, Wednesday, and...
