Spread Some Love, No Matter What Your Geographical Attitude

Just as I am contemplating the recent implication that I am too nice for the "big city" (for the record, I would say "too sensitive" rather than "too nice" and well, the meds help with that), SpinsterSpin puts me wise to the "You Are Beautiful" project. I like it. I like it and I might be sending off for some stickers.

Another look brought some irony. Where do you write to get the nice stickers that might just turn the world on with your smile? Chicago. That's right, Chicago, the big mean city that would eat the Country Mouse alive!!

I gotta say, I still don't know about that comment on your "Wanderlust"/Guardian post about "big city attitude." Not to pick a fight with anyone, but the comment seems to reflect a naive notion of what living in a big city is like. I was an 18-year-old super-quiet uber-nice Wisconsin baby when I went to Philly for school. Sink not did I. (Haiku-writing has me in Yoda mode.) And you can't find many deeper holes than Philly, Ah tell you whut.
