The Ramblings of a Damaged Mind
Big brother is watching.
This is where I live.
This is where I work. Though it looks like the photo was during construction about 3 years ago - the building is new.
This is one of the houses I'm looking at Wednesday.
As is this...
And this...
And this one too.

This is supposed to be my parents place. But Google is off by three houses - my folks are the third place to the right of the one with the marker, the long, thin one at the tip of the water. That's where I was on vacation two weeks ago.

Here's where I lived in Berkeley.
This is the last house I lived in with my family. Well, off a bit - the first house up and to the left of the marker. Just visible under the left side of the word balloon if you have that open. And that is Schenectady County Airport to the left.

I am: amused amused
Current Media: quiet office

I put in 2 of my addresses and they were both off a bit.

You can zoom right up to individual craters at the Nevada Test Site. Keen.

That is one of the weirdest places in the world that I've been to. It seems like something straight out of a post-apocalyptic, mad max movie. It's a sun-blasted desert where nothing grows that was then beaten down by nuclear fire, killing what little was left. But there are roads paved through it for trucks and the like. And, periodically, small towns that were built to see what the effect would be. These towns (full of houses, cars, fire hydrants and the like) have been preserved by the elements, but don't feel like anyone has lived in them in centuries, if at all, further adding to the eeriness of the place. Fun to take the tour of, though.

You live near me and you work even closer to where I work. There's a good chance I see you on the highway a lot.

wedgex, I love your avatar!

I drive a deep cranberry (aka purple) PT Cruiser, license 'ERIS'. :-)

And if I end up buying that first house, I'd live a hell of a lot closer to you.

What's the neighborhood like?

That first house is close to the highway. Listen for the highway drone, and make sure you can stand it. I can see 495 from my apartment window, and I really hate the traffic drone. YMMV.

Yeah, it is close - I think it is the second house back on the street. But it looks like it is sheltered a bit by the places along Park Ave. I'll have to see what it is like.

Well... I like the part of the neighborhood I'm in, but it gets a little seedy along W. Boylston St. and W. Boylston Dr, and heading back towards Mattson Ave. I'm not aware of any crime problems, but that corner of the neighborhood seems to get a (relatively) lot of unkempt lots, trash, dog poop, an auto body shop (Malo), and traffic from Greendale Mall and the highway. It's not so bad on the side streets, and a lot of joggers and walkers like to circumnavigate Indian Lake, which means a lot of foot traffic on W. Boylston Drive, and that probably deters crime a bit.

Oh yeah: I drive a rather generic looking white Saturn SC1 (coupe) with the only identifying mark being "SPOCNE" lettering in the drivers-side rear window. It's got a license plate, but I have no idea what's written on it. :-)

plugging in my address has the marker at the wrong end of the street.

Other than that, it's interesting.
