support groups
Does anyone know of any divorce support groups in the area? Looking for other people going through it, been through it; not really looking for consoling (this is for a friend of mine, not for me!!)

Thanks in advance!

Nightmare Vermont!
Looking for a fun Halloween show?

Check out http://www.nightmarevermont.org/

Even if you don't like haunted houses, you'll probably enjoy this one. There's a dance performance, an art gallery featuring Vermont artists, a zombie cyborg battle, and plenty of darkness and spookyness. And reanimated dead.

Bring a friend! Bring a date! Watch Romni get eaten alive! Get lost inside Randy's brain!

Here are some promotional trailers we made:

Note: There are stairs, so unfortunately we are not handicap accessible this year. Also: The show is PG-13 for simulated violence and fake blood. It's about an hour, sometimes longer, depending on you. It's $10 at the door, but $8 online ahead of time or at Spooky Town/VT Toy&Hobby. All proceeds go to the different charitable activities of the South Burlington Rotary.

Punch "78 Eastwood Drive, South Burlington, VT" into http://maps.google.com to find us. We're back behind the condos that are behind Shaws/ the old Ben Franklin.

Full ticket and showtime information available here:


Buy your tickets now! Forward this e-mail to your favorite Halloween fan.

Fear can be fun,

Eye Glasses in Burlington and the Area
I'm going to be going for my eye exam next Tuesday, and I was wondering...other than Lens Crafters and Pearle Vision at the University Mall, does anyone have any suggestions for where I can go to check out eye glasses frames and to purchase my glasses at? It can be in Burlington, or anywhere in the area, really. Even St. Albans would be Ok too.


Current Mood: curious

Writing workshops in Burlington, VT
Hi! I have just moved to Burlington & love it, but sadly I left behind my awesome writing group in Brattleboro, VT. We got together once or twice a month to workshop poems. I am working on a novel now & would love to create a little group that meets monthly-or-so for workshopping sessions. I'm more interested in a prose group, but a blended group (with poetry and prose) would also be wonderful. Is anyone else interested in creating a group for workshopping? Or do you know of an existing group that is looking for members?

I checked out the Burlington meetup writing group, but the group seems so big, and I prefer getting together with a group of 4 or 5 other people with work sent ahead of time so that we can really have a productive session.

Please respond here or e-mail me at letitia dot trent at gmail dot com if you are interested!

weatherproofing windows?
What's the best place to get that plastic stuff for winterizing windows, the kind you affix with a blow dryer? And is there a fancier weatherproofing technique that you folks use?

Thanks everybody!

Car repairs!
It seems like I'm posting here a lot lately :)
The move up was great, but it seemed like my boyfriend's cars brakes are going a little. Normally he'd replace the brake pads himself, but our apartment forbids car maintence on premise.
I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good mechanic (we're in South Burlington and don't really want to drive *tooo* far with bad brakes) who will work on an 1984 Porche 944. Or even if someone has some extra garage space he could use for a weekend would be great. He can do it himself, it's just we can't do it here.
Thanks :)

Japanese markets?
Hi, I'll be moving up tomorrow (yaaay!!!) and was wondering if there are any Japanese markets nearby. I heard that there is a pretty dismal Japanese restaurant scene, so I'm not too hopeful. We'll be commuting back to NJ/NY area every so often to stock up on things, and there are some substitutions we can use--but there are things we definitely prefer the Japanese brand or they don't really have substitutions.

arigato :)

Inexpensive Places to Stay
Hi all,

I'm a grad student planning to come to Burlington in October for a conference. I've been looking for cheap accommodation online, but haven't had much luck. Does anyone have suggestions? I'll probably be traveling with a few other students, and we'd like to share a room to cut down on cost. We're also completely open to something hostel-like. Our conference is at the University of Vermont, but we'll have a car, so we could stay a little farther out if it was significantly cheaper.

putting my feelers out there
I've been taking my "spa" type product hobby to the next level and am exploring options. (I use the term spa products because I don't make soap, but make scrubs and salts and that type of stuff. If anyone has a better word idea, I'd be much obliged) I have a few little stores in the area selling my stuff and am actively looking for similar stores to also carry them. But what makes it really fun for me is to make things specifically for an individual. And I don't get to do that with items headed for a shelf rather than a specific bathroom.

To this end, I have been contemplating offering "parties" much like tupperware parties. I figure this could happen in one of a couple ways, or a combination. Perhaps the entertainment part of the party could be learning to make one of the times. Or, perhaps the entertainment part of the party could be getting to use some of the items. Or maybe use what you made? The end goal is that party goers will have fun, and place orders for very specific products - made specially for them! In return, I hopefully make at least a little profit and build up an interested consumer base.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Would you be interested in hosting such a party?

Blood for Cable
Donating blood at the Burlington Red Cross last week, I found out about a nifty deal. From now until mid-September or so, blood donors get a voucher for $50 towards your Burlington Telecom bill, or thirty days' access to wifi hotspots around the city. Successive vouchers during the promotion are good for $25 towards the bill or more hotspot time.

LiveJournalers, commence to bleeding!

Moving up to VT
Hello, I'm glad I found this community. I'm moving up to Burlington for my Ph.D, and was wondering which areas cater more toward quiet, professional people. I'm moving up from an over-priced apartment in Orlando (though, I'm a native to the snowbelt, so I'm ready for the winters. My three year stint in Orlando just made me miss seasons too much). My boyfriend and I are both 25 and fairly serious people. We don't mind a little driving, since we'll both be going into Burlington, we'll be able to car-pool. I'm not crazy about driving more than half an hour--though from what I understand and my recent visit, it's not as bad as down here. (Sometimes it takes me 45 minutes to get from work to home and I only live a few miles away)

We're looking to either rent an apartment or a house, 1 or 2 bedrooms max.

I had a trip up to Burlington a week ago, and even though it was rainy, I really enjoyed my stay and was impressed with how friendly people were. I can't wait to get out of Orlando and up to Burlington.
