Lucky replied to Another Mike's discussion Driving Pet Peeves
"I hate that people here don't stop at a stop sign & then pull forward to have a look. I really can't stand it. It always looks to me like they have no plans to stop at all. I was taught to stop behind the sign and then roll forward.…"

Lucky replied to Another Mike's discussion Will you share your green chile sauce recipe?
"Michael's Kitchen in Taos makes their vegetarian green with mushrooms (don't know if they use cream of mushroom soup), and while I normally hate mushrooms with a passion, I'd put that green in my top 3."

Lucky commented on Don McIver's blog post Carless in Albuquerque
"Wow - going carless is a huge commitment! I've almost decided to get a little motor scooter to at least reduce my dependence on the car and fossil fuels, but I'm not sure I'd ever have the guts to give it away completely, and I am…"

I Promised You Rain

Posted on July 10, 2008 at 11:29pm 6 Comments

So, okay, maybe that sprinkle on my windshield doesn't count as a true downpour from this rain goddess, but I did deliver on the sweet double rainbow that arched over the city this afternoon. And I'm here until Saturday, so I still have time.



In other news, I seem to have bought a house and gotten a job. So if the inspection on my property in NY comes back clean tomorrow (please, please, please, please), the moving van picks up my junk on July 28th, and we should arrive in this fair… Continue

Rain

Posted on May 25, 2008 at 10:56pm 8 Comments

The wife and I were in Albuquerque on Friday, trying to work out where we're going to live when we grow up and move to ABQ, looking into job prospects.



You know how you can tell I was there?



Because it was raining. It is always raining when I am in Albuquerque. Not to mention the tornadoes I caused when I flew through Denver.



So, when I move, Albuquerque will have its own rain god. I keep telling people that I am moving for the better weather, but I have yet to… Continue

Just TOO Ready

Posted on March 10, 2008 at 9:34pm 3 Comments

I've read all the blogs, all the forums, everything. Every website or tour book that mentions Albuquerque, I've read.



I've visited the city, gone to open houses, fallen in love with sopapillas, and figured out, finally, which way Juan Tabo runs.



I've looked at all the neighborhoods everyone has warned us against (but where I like the houses), checked the crime stats, driven out there at night, and haven almost convinced myself that I'm an expert and the people who actually… Continue

Hi Lucky,
Thanks for being a member of Teaching in Albq.!
We were in NYC for 2 days in October. Our 14 yr old daughter was glad to visit, but also glad to come back to Albq.

I have been back in NYC for two weeks, but I don't think I got my edge back in that short time. Just maybe my accent a bit.

I totally understand. No New Yorkers for a while. I've been away from NYC for 12 years and I just started to really miss it. That said, I love my life in NM and wouldn't change it for the world. It's truly a different lifestyle. Plus, I learned how to actually drive when I moved to Abq. Best of luck on the move. -Talia

HI there. I'm actually originally from NYC too and am visiting now. There's another group on DCF called NYC Expats. It keeps us all feeling connected to "the city".

fully understandable, our slowness and "backwardsness" used to be the reason people leave but, I guess I was in my twenties when the exodus of my friends happened. My whole social scene is based around the bar industry and its been more times than not that I knew more people working in the bar than patrons and I go through that annoyed thing also. My biggest problem is if I don't go out I don't see friends. If you do get homesick you can always go to Santa Fe, it seems like every high end boutique from NY or Paris has opened a satellite in SF, so you can go be ignored by snobs and pay 14.00 for a cocktail, here we're happy with a beer and a shot for 5.00 and it is unheard of to pay more than 5.00 for a cocktail (not really but it is relatively cheap to go out here). Living is amazingly cheap & easy which is why I think alot of our best talent goes unnoticed because its just too easy to kick back and not try that hard. for every Shins or Eric Mcfadden (the best) there is ten other great musicians who prefer to play the clubs every night and not try to be the next big thing.
not sure what your into, livingwise, but Nob Hill/ student ghetto & Ridgecrest (87106 & 87108) are the only self sustaining neighborhoods in the city (they are all connected) where you can actually live without a car and all the shopping you need is right there. I did some demographics a while back working on my last attempt at a restaurant and 87106 & 87108 has the highest concentration of artists in the state. A beatiful bungalow in Nob Hill will run about 225,000. to 300,00. on about 1500 sq ft. not the most expensive neighborhood but the one of the coolest. the creators of this website are from there and a good many of the members are from that area.
