You live near Wauwatosa? It's a small world. I have been joining groups whenever I want to comment or am interested in a discussion or want to check out later when I have time.

The natives were a bit freaked out by the hoard of visiting Californians but they were gracious and charming. Also, I got my masters from UW in 2009. Sadly I did it all on line cuz I was living overseas during that time. Nonetheless the flavor of the study was decidedly Wisconsonian/Mid Western/Friendly/Reserved and I liked it very much. And of course the Packers. :)
I saw your comments on a few posts that I also commented on and thought they were interesting. I also enjoyed your minimalist description of yourself in the about me section and I am a bit of a Wisconsophile. :)
