I just bought a Filson #257 laptop bag in Otter Green off eBay. The bag is a bit larger than I anticipated, so I thought I'd pass it along. If you would like to buy for the amount I paid ($180 + $5 shipping), PM me. Very minor wear -- really enough to look slightly broken in, but still stands on its own. The linked eBay listing makes the bag look brown, but it is truly otter green. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...K%3AMEWNX%3AIT
I can't quite tell the color of this. Is it gray or blue? I suspect blue, but it looks gray on my monitor.

I live in the NJ burbs of NYC and we cut our own tree in said burbs. I'd say you (a) need to drive, and (b) need to decide where to spend an afternoon. Cutting a tree isn't all that exciting, unless you have kids (not really bucket list-worthy), so if you do it, I'd make a day of it. Thus, you could, say, head to Beacon or the Poughkeepsie Bridge walk or snag reservations at Blue Hill at Stone Barns and then just google for Christmas tree farms in the area you're...

He doesn't seem...

My reaction to SF is that, like NYC, it is a place that requires sacrifices -- space, cost of living, etc. -- to live there, like NYC the locals are always talking about how wonderful it is in order to justify the pain they suffer in living in that setting. But unlike NYC, SF doesn't have the benefits to justify the sacrifices. Really, it should be priced along the lines of Seattle or even Chicago (a more lively and humble city than SF, though with vastly worse weather).
