Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Every man needs a place as to lay his head

A place we call home. If we're born there, or come by some other means to find a place as we lay our head at night, we all have a home.

Mine is at the bottom of the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. Crown city of the state of Washington; it's rainy season right now.

Looking right down the road from my front stoop.
Spoiler:

An old, but stylish joint right around the backside of my block.
Spoiler:

And a block past that, a surprising feature of my local landscape that if often overlooked from being shadowed by taller apartment blocks-
Spoiler:

Show us were you live. Show us what's around you. Places of interest. Google street views. Sat views.

Step outside and take a couple of photos. Is the grass green? Are you buried in snow? Are you living in some southern desert hell?

Show me your place.

    No it's a trailer.

    Might as well be a shed.

    I've noticed the rain these days is more slanty than straight down, as all of my sitting spots now get rained on even though they be under cover

    I live directly across the street from a ritzy private school. I like to go sit on the stoop to read and/or have smokes/coffee, weather permitting. I get so many grumpy stares from parents dropping off or picking up their kids, and when they have a fire drill they swarm the sidewalk on my side of the street. Wish the parents would realize that the school is in a residential zone.

    Sometimes one or two of them will walk over towards me like they're gonna ask but I just glare at them and they divert.

    Kids probably get half my VA payment amount in allowance. Swindle their own smokes.

    St. Ann's is right down the street from me

    god damn I want to strangle those kids

    "you got an extra smoke, man"

    "FUCK YOU YOU'RE LIKE TWELVE I'M NOT GIVING YOU A CIGARETTE"

    and then they go on to a prestigious private college and I'm busting my tits trying to stay above water in a tier two law school

    fuck this I'm moving to the gentrified part of Harlem

    There was one day though where their photography teach was out with some of her students doing a project as I was riding my bike back home and they asked me to pose in front with my bike for some pics, so that was cool.
