The Onion: spot on.

Sometimes I Feel Like I’m The Only One Trying To Gentrify This Neighborhood

When I moved into this neighborhood, I fell in love right away. Not with the actual neighborhood, but with its potential: It’s affordable, there are nice row houses all around just waiting to be filled up by my friends, there’s lot of open space to be exploited, and plenty of parking. Plus, this area has got a great authentic feel and, with a little work, it could be even more authentic. Perfect, right?

So why am I the only one doing anything about it?

absent for a bit longer

Hi folks,

I’ve been spotty in my posting and responding to comments lately. I’m in the midst of finishing up at my current job and starting at another, planning a move, and big life stuff, so I’ll be fairly absent for a while longer. Hopefully after August 18 I’ll be back in the swing of things. So, ¡hasta luego!
