I'm walking all night to prevent suicide, you can help!
I hope this isn't off topic, but I'm going to be taking part in the AFSP's Out of the Darkness Overnight 2007 in NYC on June 9-10th. This is a 20 mile walk from sundown to sunup to raise funds and awareness for suicide prevention.

To help me fundraise, please go http://www.theovernight.org/fundraising/suechru

More information on the Overnight is available at http://www.theovernight.org

I live in State College now, and, although there's much more to do here than there was in Moosic, I actually miss some things about the place.


PS- Any other NEPA refugees up here?

I recently (randomly) found this online. I was Googling the Farmer's Market (downtown Wilkes-Barre) because a friend of mine, who isn't from PA, didn't understand what it was. Sooo I was searching for something (like a picture) to show her, but instead found this great short film.. haha..
it involves downtown W-B, the Market St. Bridge, Hotel Sterling, etc..

Subject:More things I miss about NEPA....
Posted by:calily.
Time:12:26 am.
- Going to Wal-mart at 2 am. There is no such thing as an all-night Wal-Mart in North Jersey (I've also been unable to find an all-night grocery store in my area.)

- Driving just to drive, with the exception of really snowy days, you can pretty much just drive for the fun of it in NEPA, I didn't realize until I moved to a major metro that you can't just drive without having to deal with traffic, etc.

- Potato pancakes and pierogi, I still have not found anything like that out here.

- Parade Day, nothing tops Parade Day in Scranton. Parades elsewhere, well, they just don't measure up.

- Manning's ice cream. Especially now that it's summer, you have no clue how much I miss this stuff. I'm drooling just thinking about it.

- The complete and total lack of crime. With the exception of a few "bad neighborhoods" in Scranton, most of NEPA is completely and utterly safe. Even the South Side and the Hill section pale in comparison to Newark. (Don't get me started on Irvington *shudder*)

- How cheap everything is - I miss going out and being able to get wasted on less than $10. Where I live now that can buy one drink. Oh and don't get me started on real estate and rents.

Hey everyone - I just moved back to NePa from the Washington DC area and thought I'd say hello. People say to me "why on EARTH would you come back here?" and I say "well, let's see, 1000 month apartments, terrorism central, traffic jams that suck away hours of my life I can never get back, politics schmolitics............." the list goes on and on.

Born and raised in Pittston, left in 1991, now I live in Duryea. Don't know if anyone here is my age or close to it, but it would be neat to find local friends.

Thanks for starting this community - I am PROUD to be from NEPA once again, and to celebrate, tonight I will be at a pit-nic eating potato pancakes and pierogies! :):)

Sorry for the delay, also, I only saw about half the episode so if I missed any in the first half please add them.

- "Did you go to O'Hara?" also known as BO, they set our football field on fire once. (I went to MV, I think our school retaliated by beating them up. MV is a violent place.)

- Also I thought the Corolla being a "really nice car" was a shout out because in Scranton that IS a really nice car.

Subject:The Office - Scranton shoutouts!
Posted by:calily.
Time:9:40 pm.
Mood: cheerful.
"Loser buys dinner at Farley's" - WOOO! I used to drink there in college. Plus, location-wise it's a pretty accurate choice (it's a block from where Paper Magic is). Also, Friday nights they have a happy hour that's basically anyone remotely close to being a professional in Scranton. (That's when I was hit on by like 53 year old lawyers... fun times)

"I'm going to the Outlet Mall" - I'm assuming they mean The Crossings? (As for "the lake" - there's tons of lakes near Scranton)

Eee! U of Scranton banner in the background of tonight's scene in the warehouse. Yes, they had a pennant hanging. Eeee! I'm almost tempted to pull mine out of the closet and hang it somewhere (if I could figure out where to PUT it) Also, was Jim wearing a U of Scranton t-shirt! Woo, looks like someone on the film crew made a stop at the bookstore!

So many shoutouts tonight! Did I miss any?

Subject:The Office Last Night
Posted by:calily.
Time:5:21 pm.
Mood: amused.
Hmm, I continually watch The Office for Scranton shout-outs.

Last night there wasn't much (as opposed to last week with mention of Scranton Travel and what I can only assume was the Lackawanna Coal Mine tour). However, little known fact, that store room "downstairs"? There's actually a room like that in the building Paper Magic is in (the same building they use as the exterior). My mom worked for a doctor's office in that building and would often have to go to what she described as a creepy store room off the garage, so actually not that far off. I guess we can call that a shout-out, although it's pretty tame.

I'm waiting for the shoutout for da U. Cause that'll like make my year.

I thought you might enjoy this one as well...
1. You own a Penn State or Notre Dame shirt despite the fact that you have never attended either college.

2. You can name at least three traditional pierogie fillings.

3. Snow days have a special place in your heart.

4. Interstate 81 is the only one that matters.

5. You can’t imagine living in an area without mountains.

6. The first day of deer season is a school holiday.

7. You know the time and location of every “wing night” in the region.

8. You know several people who have hit a deer more than once.

9. Your grandparents drive 65mph through 13 feet of snow during a raging blizzard, without flinching.

10. You install security lights on your house and garage but leave doors unlocked.

11. There are 7 empty cars running in the parking lot at the mini-mart at any given time.

12. You can actually eat cold pizza (even for breakfast) and know others who do the same.

13. You ask the waitress for “dippy eggs” for breakfast.

14. You think only God has the proper resume to take over after Joe Paterno leaves Penn State.

I'm sure I'll find a kupple two tree tings to say about Scranton in the future but for now, I'll leave anyone who is not familiar with our lingo and happens to fall into the "Gulch" with a detailed Visitors Guide.

I'm sure yous will enjoy it as you have a kup of koffee and maybe eat a hod dawg....

Here is a quick excerpt:

Da You
That fine Jesuit institute of higher learning on Mulberry Street, not far from CMC where they pump alcohol out of kids' stomachs.
Some people in the Wyoming Valley probably think it's called the University of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

Subject:Scranton Shoutouts
Posted by:calily.
Time:11:32 pm.
I figured I'd start a thread for Nepa shout outs.

Of course, the biggest obvious one is NBC's "The Office" which is set in Scranton. As all the natives know, they actually show Scranton on the show. (I'm sure we'll have several threads about The Office, which is totally cool)

But other shoutouts include: Home Alone (The mom ends up in Scranton trying to get home), Friends (When Ross is trying to get Marcel the monkey into a zoo and gets turned down by Scranton "who take dogs and cats"), All in the Family had a bunch of shoutouts (I believe some relatives lived there or something).

Any others?
