its not a deal exactly, and i dont want to get detailed into what she does, but she works freelance, and if a job cancels, there is no guarantee it will reschedule, or she will get it. and it was a good job she had lined up. not cool.

its a mess here. i am downtown cuz i work here, but do not plan on attending the parade. one of my bosses is going. he has been outside for hours, it keeps getting delayed. the players cant get in from all the traffic. people have abandoned their cars on the highway.... classic bmore. the inhabitants are inconsiderate and the city seems to have been vastly unprepared for the event. no surprise to me.

Baltimore Looking for Safer City to Host Super Bowl
Quote:
BALTIMORE—Following the Ravens’ victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, Baltimore officials confirmed Tuesday that they are currently seeking a safer, less crime-infested city to hold the team’s celebratory parade. “Though we are all excited about our Ravens bringing home the Lombardi Trophy, we must make the safety of parade attendees and the players our number-one priority—and that means keeping the celebration far away from Baltimore,” said mayor’s office spokeswoman Ganesha Martin, who noted that parade planners had proven unable to map out a suitable motorcade route within the city limits that wouldn’t lead the procession through urban neighborhoods notorious for poverty, drugs, and brutal gang violence. “We’ve been scouting out a number of cities in which fans can cheer on their victorious Ravens without putting themselves in immense danger, including Boston, New York, and Pittsburgh. Honestly, San Francisco is pretty high on our list right now, and doesn’t have nearly as many homicides.” City officials are reportedly resolved not to repeat the same mistake made in 2001, when the decision to hold the Super Bowl XXXV victory parade in Baltimore led to the near-fatal stabbing of Ravens head coach Brian Billick by a homeless crack addict 30 seconds into the ceremony.

Following Baltimore’s failure to secure funding to relocate the Super Bowl victory parade to a safer region, sources confirmed that the ongoing celebration has already been marred by a series of violent floatjackings perpetrated by the city’s extensive criminal population. Parade attendees said that multiple floats have been seized by packs of lawless hijackers, and many Ravens players have been robbed, viciously beaten, and, in some cases, kidnapped as their floats are driven away from the parade route. Onion Sports will continue to update this story as it develops.

^damn sorry about that Stitch...

as for driving around in downtrodden/scarier neighborhoods:

I have a friend who's fucking clueless who asked me if we can meet up at 1pm for a late lunch. She lives in Coney Island. Thats like an hour and a half drive right now during lunch from the upper west side area of manhattan.

She'll do this often... just ask to meet up with my wife and I and she'll say something like "can you guys meet me in the Bronx? I'm in the Mt. Vernon area" like its no big deal. The that part of the bronx is like a 45min drive and an almost 1.5hr subway ride from our house in brooklyn.

but her mom and dad kind of entrusted her safety to my wife and I (we're all old friends) because they know how flighty/flaky she is. I just hope this doesn't involve borrowing money or something serious.

I'm paleo, too.
post #42179 of 66695
You paleo guys don't allow alcohol or beer, right? What kind of fucked up religious program are you guys engaged in?
post #42180 of 66695
That's pretty much the only part that I break, but I don't drink beer. Gin doesn't have carbs in it so I feel better about it.
