For me, the aforementioned comforatble = nice house out away from the city with a good size yard and pool and sensible mortage, nice GM cars for me a SO, pets, nice clothes and the ocassion trip.

Granted, I'm in IN, so cost of living is cheap-ish, and I want no kids. Also I figure in SO's $60,000-ish wages.

I'm in Ohio (similar cost of living) and do all of the above on $80K with $35K from SO.  Well, no pool but a vacation/hunting cabin and 90 acres in SE Ohio as well as the primary residence.  Having my own wildlife sanctuary makes me rich.  ;-)

And also, I'm tired of being a grown up, and I want to go back to school for a few years.

Cheers,

Para

I'm glad someone else admitted this first.  Ah, the life of a poor, hard-working, macaroni-and-cheese eating student!   :D

I like "The Fireman" from George Strait... ;D

Yeah, they call me the fireman, that's my name.
Makin' my rounds all over town puttin' out old flames.
Well everybody'd like to have what I got,
I can cool 'em down when their smolderin' hot.
I'm the fireman, that's my name.

Last night we had a bad one a mile or two down the road,
Yeah my buddy walked out and left his woman burnin' outta control.
Well, I was down their in 'bout an hour or so,
With a little mouth to mouth she was ready to go.
I'm the fireman, that's my name.

--- Instrumental ---

I got a fire engine red, T-Bird automobile,
In a minute or less I can be dressed fit to kill.
I work twenty four on and twenty four off,
If they get too hot they just give me a call.
I'm the fireman, that's my name.

This seems to be the theme song of every firefighter with whom I work.   ;)

If I had gone straight from undergrad to law school, I never would have...

...been appointed to my hometown fire department, become a firefighter/paramedic, saved a few lives, lost many more  :'( , learned about building construction to the depth that I have, discovered how many people live in squallor, finally realized that many don't care that they do, watched two teenage girls die after being hit by a train, learned to get drunk at nine in the morning the day after watching two teenage girls die after being hit by a train, helped close down a bar that covered for a drug operation, and learned what I am physically, mentally and emotionally capable of under extreme and dangerous conditions.

Yup, that about covers it.

The best sandwiches in the entire world....
Discuss.

Thick-sliced fried bologna sammich at Bud's Place, Sandusky, OH.  On rye bread (heavily buttered and grilled on the grease-stained griddle) with a huge slice of raw, sweet onion, melted swiss cheese and brown mustard.  Wavy potato chips, a deli dill pickle and a cold draft round out the meal.

That's real food.

Does anyone here use their real pic as an avatar? 

Mine is a pic of a real deer I shot.  Does that count?   ;)

+10.  I love bananas, plus they have lots of potassium.  And really, really, REALLY ripe ones can be used to make banana-walnut bread.  Yum!   ;)
