let's talk small towns and outlying places

Small towns have their awesomeness and their soul-crushing aspects, sometimes equally but more often not.

jaq, Monday, 27 July 2009 04:24 (eleven years ago) link

Moving from a city to a small town a few years ago manifested in me being stunned to always run into someone I knew or worked with, no matter where I went. Grocery: boss; gym: dental hygenist; library: landlord; farmers market: coworker; etc.

Sometimes, that was really nice.

Every July, the Village of Hamburg celebrates Burgerfest to commemorate the invention of the hamburger in Hamburg[dubious – discuss] at the Erie County Fair in 1885.

six months pass...

to get a mn license I need to go to a testing center at a location separate from the licensing center and take a written test (despite having a valid license from another state). that center is only open mon-wed. then I have to bring my test results to the licensing center to get an actual license. why????

tehresa, Friday, 10 July 2015 18:56 (five years ago) link

sorry that's not quite for ruby just a small town "quirk."

tehresa, Friday, 10 July 2015 18:56 (five years ago) link

i had to do this 20 years ago despite having a valid nc license!

iirc you just need to remember that your headlights are only good for 40 ft*

three weeks pass...

so we're going back to the faroe islands in 2018 and i've decided on a plan:

- befriend as many locals as possible
- make a good impression by being awesome
- save up lots of money
- wait until neko dies of old age
- send heartfelt essay/letter to faroese government expressing how much we love the faroe islands and how we'll be the most patriotic faroese citizens of all time, if they let us
- buy a village
- live happily ever after

i seriously cannot stop thinking about living there.

smoove operator, Wednesday, 25 January 2017 03:19 (three years ago) link

I think you are onto something

toadstool might (tehresa), Wednesday, 25 January 2017 23:37 (three years ago) link

pfft i got nicer islands than that

esperantzen (p much resigned to deems), Thursday, 26 January 2017 00:28 (three years ago) link

i don't believe you; the faroes are the nicest islands of all time

smoove operator, Saturday, 28 January 2017 00:30 (three years ago) link

i don't think we exchanged more than 3 words with a faroese person while we were there, gonna have to work on my social skills for next time. they're rusty bc i have no social life beyond the internet.

smoove operator, Saturday, 28 January 2017 00:31 (three years ago) link

i don't think we exchanged more than 3 words with a faroese person while we were there

my understanding from novels is that remote islanders prefer silence

deems may be a counter-example
