Wow....I finally did it... I came out of months of lurking and into the light of the forums. I am a grad student (in planning) about to start my second year. I've been lurking off and on for about four months, regularly for about one. I don't own a gun, I don't shop at Wal-Mart, and I NEVER know which city is pictured in "Guess the City." Thanks for keeping me entertained, because Cyburbia IS my (grad student) entertainment budget. :D So, here's to a lively summer...

Welcome to the boards Belle! I have sworn off Wal-Mart and no longer own a gun - A Louisville Slugger will suffice. So which school in Dixie do you attend?

[ot]I'm sure I've seen that. Perhaps a Cyburbia trade?

Sorry about the OT stuff.[/ot]

Welcome! A recent study found that there are 0.84 guns in the United States for every resident. That ratio may be a little higher on Cyburbia, but that is probably a reflection of our working in the planning field.

I sold my guns to my brother when I was broke in college.

Welcome, Dixie Belle.

If you see it, and are willing, let me know what I can offer in return from good ol' 'merica. ;)[/ot]

The one closest to your hometown.

I figured as much. What in the world are you doing to keep yourself occupied this summer - Other than going to the see the Y-beach fireworks? ;)

I try to make it to a couple of games a season so maybe we'll run into each other this fall. If you want to find me I'll be the one in the orange shirt, under the orange tent, sitting in an orange chair with a beer in an orange coozie in hand. Oh wait, I think I just decribed the myself along with the other 85,000 people who will be there.

Anyway, it's good to have somebody here representing the 864

I'll keep my eyes out for too, especially if I have to come down next week for an interview.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

Where in Dixie?

Nope, this Belle's for real!!! (and residing in the Carolinas)

P.S.--martini, that is by far my favorite bumper sticker ever, and I was just quoting it yesterday.

Welcome, it's good to see another southerner posting. We are woefully underrepresented compared to the Midwest!

OT: they've shown it here, well, maybe it was just on our hockey channel.

Anyhooo-
Welcome! I can never get the city either, even when they posted a picture of a street in my town that I go to all the time (sad, I know).

Oh good lord, the Clemsons are starting to outnumber the Cheeseheads.
