Definitely can't be a dry socket, seeing as I'm not writhing in pain.

Probably small bone fragments. Still happens to me occasionally over 10 years after the procedure.

I wouldn't mind living in a log cabin. Fly in booze and hookers on a supply run each week.

Every time I hear this song, I think of Piob's stories about his union kin.

Sometimes I get anxiety to me to where I think silly thoughts. Today it took me a little while to find the correct key to my office door. (I have many keys on my ring it is like a janitor's key ring or something.) As I was searching for my key, I thought "what if a criminal were trying to kill me and the only way to save my life would be to get in this door really fast and then lock it shut? I would be dead because I was too slow just now at finding my key." There's no reason to have such an thought and yet that is the thought I did have.

We'll be buying what I hope is our "forever" house in the next couple of years, so we've started really paying attention to the housing market in our area. In our price range, one option is going to be the McMansions, and the two things that strike me about them, at least in our price range, are the enormous square footage seemingly just for the sake of being big and the way the houses take up like 75% of the lots. The former just seems wasteful to me, but the latter is a real problem. I have no desire for my family home to be 15 feet from the neighbor, especially given what I'll be paying.

It really concerns me because the McMansions on tiny lots occupy most of the price band between places I feel are, let's say, "not quite at the level I feel we've worked to attain" and the full-on mansions we won't be able to afford.

One thing our area has going for it is that there's a fair quantity of nice, non-McMansion homes that sit on a couple/few acres. These tend to be perfect because their grouped into loose neighborhoods, but you still have a ton of space. We're both super hopeful this will be an option when the time comes to buy, because it's exactly what we both want, but that stock is pretty limited.

I'd gladly take this, though you can have the hookers.

In my perfect scenario, I'd have a house on a bunch of acreage in the mountains, and, as my kids grow up and start their families, I'd just break them off handfuls of acres and gift them the land on which to build their family home.

Basically, my legacy to them is the land, but they have to still be responsible enough to have the means to build and maintain the home.

This is exactly it. People just want "space" because... "Space". ANd to put all their stupid tchotchkes they bought at Bed Bath and Beyond with "LOVE LIVES HERE" In distressed lettering.

And because no one gardens/wants to live off the land they don't need big yards.

Then again, I live in an old neighborhood and the houses are stacked pretty close to each other, so the lot thing isn't really new. The space for the sake of having space, however, is.

this seems to be the intro to every house hunting show on TV:

"Gabriella and Blake are ready for the next step in their life, and this includes a new baby. The couple is worried that their 4,000 square foot home isn't enough for their growing family, which includes their 2 year old son, Justin, and their Labradoodle, Scout. They want an open concept layout with a den, an office, a library, a pool, stainless appliances, and a game room."

I really hate labradoodles and I can't quite explain why. I think it's at least 50% the name.
