I've been following the Cyburbia forums for a long time now, but put off actually JOINING because I didn't feel like a planner, despite the title. Now that I've complete a year of contractual work with not one but two municipalities though, I feel as though I can describe myself as "Planner" and not feel as though I'm lying through my teeth.

AICP? No, not eligible for another year.

Planning degree? No, Geography. I dumb lucked into planning.

Regular or decaf? Is there a choice? I'd rather drink lite beer than decaf coffee!

Nice to finally introduce myself.

Welcome to the chaos that is Cyburbia.

Those of us suffering under the continuing conquest will try not to hold your midwestern U.S. location against you.

Many of us here are geographers, so good choice!

Better not drink that lite swill in Wisconsin!

Your dot will be added to the map.

Nobody should drink lite beer. If you should be drinking lite beer for some reason, maybe you shouldn't be drinking beer.

Thank you all, rest assured, no lite beer in the house. No picture of me posted yet, I'll figure out how to do that soon. Yeah, fastest growing county in Michigan. We're trying to keep the sprawl down, but without any regulatory authority, all we can do is talk to locals until we're blue.

Busy day today. I have to get ready to fire my grill up here at the office. We're having a baby shower for my co-worker. No, he's not pregnant, but his wife is.

Do you work for the County? A couple of friends of mine worked there in the Planning Dept until a couple years ago.

Where did you go to school?

Oh, and welcome!
