Yeah, her name was Shirley Mason.

She moved to Lexington Kentucky and worked as a commercial artist.

When she died, they found artwork in her basement referred to as "The Hidden Paintings."

If you ask me, her artwork was freaky. Here's a link to The Hidden Paintings: Home Page


Peganmamma, rent the old movie titled Sybil. As a result of the movie, the name Sybil is used to imply when someone has multiple personalities.

Sorry O.T.
If it wasn't for posts like the above, I'd never know what's going on around here. I had no idea about this....

I'm going back to the NY forums to find that 3 bedroom with balcony and doorman for $650.....

are you saying the Real Sybil once had an account on CD, changed her account name to KylieEve and then was banned?

I'm missing something here. How old is CD? How did anybody find out who Sybil was on CD? We need some more info please.

Lol. No, the real Sybil never posted here as far as I know. Lisalan posted here, kept getting into heated arguements and then getting threads closed, then changed her name to KylieEve, again got into heated arguements and getting threads closed then finally got banned. Now she bashes CD folks over at [domain blocked due to spam] in a most disgusting and psychotic way. Some of us believe she is already back here under another name.

oh thank you for the explanation. I remember seeing her posts before.

I remember seeing that movie Sybi. I think Sally Field got some sort of Best Actor award for it. It was riveting.

In a prime neighborhood like TriBeCa or Soho or the West Village.

It has to exist because my cousin's friend's sister's boyfriend's dog walker's drug dealer who lived there in 1985 heard it from his grandpa.

I have two people who want to roommate with me and we found an apartment with a 3 brdm for 1050 a month, that works out to be like 350 a person and without having to work off my rent I would be making bank even more.

You'll still have 1/3 of the utilities. But $350 plus utilities is in the same ballpark of your current arrangement. The difference is you would be independent. When you're not working you would be in your own place dealing with roommate issues, not employer issues. It's worth considering. Just keep in mind that you will need to get a second job in addition to your BBB job. And don't burn bridges with your current nanny employer---they might want to still use you for occassional PAID babysitting when in a crunch.

Txt,
Do you know these people? Well? Are they financially able to handle their 1/3 + utilities? Do you work the same hours? Are their lifestyles compatible with yours? Do they go to college, so they'll need study time, also? In a sense, you almost have to "interview" people for room mates. You do NOT want to end up living with someone who can't or won't come up with their share of bank...and you don't want someone you can't trust to leave your stuff alone. Also, everything you need from a room mate, you should be prepared to be held under scrutiny as well, eh? GET THINGS IN WRITING! Like Hope said, if you do this, make sure that you don't burn your bridges with the folks you're babysitting for. You may need that extra $10/hr, down the road.

I couldn't rep you beachmel, but those are excellent questions. Listen to her, txt. She's giving you good advice.
