Hanover, NH: The Family You Choose


Family Style @ Tuck, originally uploaded by funchilde.

The thing about being a nomad is that the siren call of the road will always trump the possibilities of laying down roots…until it doesn’t anymore. I’m still a sucker for the thrill of travel and so I am continually bidding someone, somewhere “see you later.”

I realized this weekend that I have a set of keys to my parent’s house (a given), but I have keys to three other houses that do not belong to people I am related to. I have standing invitations to let myself into their homes whenever I need to (and I have).  I can show up to any of these places with no notice, broke, broke-down, and bedraggled and I’d be accepted with open arms.

To be loved and trusted with the keys to someone’s most intimate space is the ultimate honor in my book, trumped only by being trusted with someone’s offspring. And so I bid my fond farewells to my New Hampshire, New York and Virginia client’s, my closest friends and of course my family, which isn’t so hard to do when you know you’re always welcome back.

T-minus: 7 days and counting to Semester at Sea.

Check me out over at Gadling.

First stop: Ft. Lauderdale, Fl to Nassau, Bahamas.

  1. Dia,

    You might not have a key to my house, but you still remember where I hide it, don’t you.

    Ms. D.

    P.S. Look out for Tom – the every-other-week- roommate.

  2. before you were a nomad, i can recall a time or two when i brought some drama to your doorstep or needed to hide out next door. you always answered with good food and good counseling. i’m a big believer that you get what you give in this world. what folks are willing to do reflects what you bring to their lives. i’m proud to know you homey. now go forth and shine your light all ’round the world.

  3. Momma D: You know you’re family…BUT I did forget where the key is! Love you!

    Lboogie: Mi Casa es su casa, but now that you are movin’ on up, I’ll be couch surfing at your bachelorette pad! Holla!

  6. I’ve got an Amazon gift certificate burning holes in my pocket,
    and I want to get the most bang for my buck.

    Enter the Secret Amazon Web Pages:


    This is where you’re going to find the “latest sales, rebates, and limited-time offers” from
    Amazon, and you can score some pretty deep discounts if you’re a savvy shopper.

    Next, there’s the special Sale link. This is open every Friday, and ONLY on Fridays.

    You can find the same good discounts here as you would in hidden Deals, although some
    Fridays you can really get lucky and make off like an Amazon bandit – I’ve seen discounts
    there as low as 75% off sticker price.

  8. Pokerstars Fuck Online Poker keeps this listing of these who may have been caught cheating online poker games. Multi-accounting. Nick “gbmantis” Niergarth was caught multi-accounting on Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker in an sophisticated cheating scandal involving other players including JJProdigy, one of the most famous online poker games cheaters in history. gbmantis played in the biggest tournaments on both sites regularly and has been caught using friends accounts to play tournaments and taking over friends accounts late in tournaments that he already got busted out earlier himself. Accusations of chip dumping and colluding with friends playing in the same tournament have also surfaced. gbmantis is one of the biggest and most widely recognized named cheaters who may have been caught in recent years. Close friends with his mentor Josh JJProdigy Fields, who is serving a lifetime ban from Internet online poker games but strongly rumored to be regularly playing under someone else’s account, gbmantis has destroyed his own reputation through the recent cheating scandal. One way in which gbmantis cheated would be to take over a friend’s account who records show has always been a small limit player usually playing $2 or $5 tournaments. All of a sudden, this small timer is winning $100 rebuy tournaments and entering other large buy-in tournaments. After scoring big, the small time would transfer his money and go back to playing smaller buy-in tournaments again but now because he earned a commission from the big score of over $200,000 gbmantis won on his account can now afford to play $24 tournaments regularly. One of these accounts belongs to YourTimeIsUp (YTIU, aka stealthmunk) Justin Schwartz one of gbmantis roommates. http://www.google.com/search?q=online+poker+cheater
