landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
This has kind of been a long time coming for me, but I just accepted an offer to come work for an advertising agency in Dearborn, and I will be moving to Detroit from Cleveland. I'm from Michigan originally, but have never lived in southeast Michigan. I was wondering if anyone who lives in the area could give advice on where to live, any nice apartments, etc.
I've been strongly considering moving downtown. I've looked at a couple apartments that look pretty cool, and it might be fun to have a downtown lifestyle. However, I don't want to get stabbed.
I've also considered Ann Arbor, but I'm not sure how much I would enjoy the commute from AA to Dearborn everyday on 94.
Anyways, thanks in advance for any tips or advice you can give. They are greatly appreciated.
Speaks for itself. What a shame.
Its that time again. Time for a good Friday posbang!
What are you all up to today? Have you found a way to avoid being productive on this sunny Friday? Are you doing anything interesting this weekend?
Me, I'm sitting here at my desk as usual, trying not to get carpal tunnel syndrome as I hammer out document after document. Howard Stern is talking in the background, providing another distraction to get me through the day, which includes me trying very hard to keep my composure with a lawyer for Comerica about language in a document. Who would have thought a mid-sized bank like Comerica would be so difficult to deal with!?
As for this weekend, I have a nice little Saturday planned. Going to take my oldest to a gourmet breakfast at IHOP and then hit the storage unit to move crap out of our house so we can put it on the market. (You'd be amazed at the amount of kids sh-t that you accumulate in just four years.) Maybe I'll cut the grass too. Not sure. Not sure if I'll have enough time.
(For all you Battlefield 3 players out there: Have you purchased the Premium add-on yet? Any thoughts on the new weapons? For you PS3ers, I set up a new platoon called "MGoBlog" (clan name "MGo") if any of you want to join. I'm playing under a different PSN these days so friend me up. I'm still playing late-night so if any of you are up late playing too lets squad up.)
[EDIT: Almost forgot to upvote my own thread . . . Done.]
He is up there with Asimov, Heinlein and Clarke.....and one of the most gracious, down-to-earth individuals (I met him a few times at book readings).

For most of us, our fanatical and absolute devotion to Michigan sports have gotten us into some degree of hot water at the workplace. Few of us would be so indignant, of course, but that wouldn't necessarily make for good reading, would it?
On Thursday we'll keep up with Tom and his ongoing altercation with THE MAN, namely the eternally grumpy Mr. Boyle.
THE BLOCKHAMS™ runs (typically) every Tuesday here at MGoBlog, and at least
every Thursday on its official home page. Also, don't forget to check out our newest
feature, Friday Roughs, a spontaneous low-end comic based on trending
Michigan events, available on Twitter and Facebook every Friday.
