re: Flying into Denver, staying at Keystone. Do I need to rent a car? - PrettyBird
[quote]The shuttles suck and you will want a car to explore around[/quote] Why would they want to explore around in the middle of winter, in a car? Serious question. You go to Keystone to ski, as it is not a true "ski town" with very little to do outside of the base of the mountain. If they aren'...

re: I broke the "pay for the person behind you" chain in the drive thru and karma struck - PrettyBird
I've pulled up at Starbucks and they said my order was paid for, I said thanks and drove away as I also don't believe in the "chain" just for the sake of paying for the next person. However, I absolutely paid it forward in many other ways. One small example, anytime I am in a coffee shop and...

re: The Weird Obsession With Your Kids Going to Same High School As You - PrettyBird
[quote]If Barret makes it in, it will be huge for Dominican. [/quote] This is so lame. Why? Dominican is not the same school as when Barret went there... all new staff, admin, teachers, people, parents. People are so weird. ...

re: The Weird Obsession With Your Kids Going to Same High School As You - PrettyBird
Jesuit guys were the WORST and to this day I know so many grown adult Jesuit graduate pricks. I went to a Catholic school in NOLA and I would not push it on my kids. I also won't push LSU just because I went there either. I agree that it is odd to determine that so far in advance, because your ki...

re: Is it worth traveling to NYC right now? - PrettyBird
I would not go anytime in 2020 or early 2021. I have several friends that live there and they are taking it very seriously with the mask requirement and closures. I suppose it depends what you want to do when there but it would not make a hotel/ubers/other costs of travel worth a weekend for me. ...

re: I’m going for a work interview in the Telluride area next week - PrettyBird
[quote]How were you able to make the transition to cold weather?[/quote] Buy some warm clothes, get AWD or 4WD and move. Even if you end up living there for one year it would be an amazing experience. Telluride in the summer is worth the snowy winter. ...

re: Flying into Denver, staying at Keystone. Do I need to rent a car? - PrettyBird
Keystone is pretty small, are you staying at the base? You would use the car once there very minimally. I would probably shuttle and just make sure you schedule the ride back with plenty of time for your flight. ...

re: Airlines and Beverage Service - PrettyBird
They are serving regular drinks for sure, possibly alcohol. It is a federal offense to bring your own alcohol on a plane and drink it so... if you're that desperate and can't wait four hours, you should go for it. ...

re: Colorado in Early November - PrettyBird
RMNP you can't go wrong. I would throw in Glenwood Springs - they are even offering travelers $100 credit to use around town. Colorado Springs is another nice area. ...

re: Covid contact school restrictions are absurd - PrettyBird
[quote]Because they’ve been on top of it?[/quote] I have zero faith left in CDC, so I am with you. Schools cannot make up their own rules about this virus so I think they have no other choice. It has been proven that this is not like a regular flu virus, though....

re: Covid contact school restrictions are absurd - PrettyBird
I agree that a lot of these COVID-19 precautions are over the top for certain demographics. However, I think schools are in a tough spot. They are damned if they do, damned if they don't. If a school went against CDC rec's and came up with their own restrictions - and by CHANCE has a COVID-19 ou...

re: Will SAHMs ever quit complaining about how "hard" their lives are? - PrettyBird
Oh dear. Maybe you should set off an IED in close proximity, and make yourself go deaf. This seems to be the only way so you don't have to hear it in your office discussions, church study and neighborhood walks. Unless you come across a group of SAHM who are fluent in sign language, then you're just...

re: Has anyone bought ski boots online? - PrettyBird
I didn't know they were that much more expensive - but even buying ski boots, you would still need to go rent the skis' right? Which defeats the purpose of not having to go waste time and do that. To another poster's point - I would not recommend buying boots without trying them on and getting ...

re: Has anyone bought ski boots online? - PrettyBird
Does the Backpacker in Baton Rouge not exist anymore? That is not very often skiing for buying boots and having to travel with them. They have "black tie" service now where you can pay to have the ski rental company bring boots and skiis to your condo for fittings. ...

re: American Murder: Watts family homicides - PrettyBird
I'm not saying it was selfish or wasn't... because I wasn't there. I don't know the full story. By going to a wedding you are telling the bride or groom that you support their marriage. They did not support it, for whatever reasons, and didn't go. Was that selfish? Perhaps, but perhaps they also wer...
