Hometown: Philadelphia, PA
October 6, 2011
In Philadelphia -- back in the day, our neighborhood was called "Fairmount", but now thanks to creative marketing, it's the "Art Museum Area." Sounds swanky, huh?
Your firstborns? Ah, I'll settle for some really good and lasting friendships.
I was driving to the gym one day, earlier than usual, and saw Police cars on the side of the road at my exit. I slowed down thinking there was an accident or something and the trooper waved me to stop. He looked in the front and back seat of my car, and then explained that he was trying to see if anyone was in the car with me. I asked him, horrified, if there was a report of a car jacking. No, he said, you're driving in a HOV lane and you need more than yourself in the car. No, he didn't find me funny, and yes I got a ticket.
Rima + Rodney! You both seem to be such lovely hosts and so welcoming to new folk. I hope to meet you both, soon after I arrive on Oct 23.
I'm officially the Newest Kid on October 23!
This is one of the best groups on Meetup -- very easy to meet new people and make friends! Rodney is a fabulous host who will make you feel welcome.
