I consolidated my loans in circa 2001 and paid on them responsibly for maybe 10 years. I think I messed up again about a year ago and rehabilitated them and got out of default. But now I've failed on that rehabilitation and my loans have been sent to a recovery agency. [more inside]

What is this four headed snow monster which has cut off one head?

This is a piece of folk art(?) in a house with many such things. I am house-sitting. Owner is away unreachable and in the past when I have asked her the story behind pieces, she doesn't know; she just buys them because they appeal to her artistically. I keep thinking there must be more of a story to it. [more inside]

Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice and Lions and Tigers and Bears and Hot Tubs and Hairy Chests and Press-On Nails...

Some now-former friends have decided to jump into polyamory as a solution to a big mess of relationship crazy. I think this is a terrible, terrible idea, for reasons specific to both the couple and polyamory as a whole. But how do I discuss this with them (and others) without sliding down the slippery slope of defining what other types of relationships are "right" or "wrong"? [more inside]
