My dad got a job offer in Thompson recently, and is considering moving there for a couple of years with my Mom and 12 Year-old sister. The problem is, we know very little about Thompson (sorry for my ignorance) and wanted to help my parents out. Can I get some information about what the cities like? Things to do? How are the people of the community, etc. Any help would be wonderful, thanks so much!

OK, so I'm from New York and I'm in Thompson for the summer. I don't know anyone who actually live lives here (I pretty much hang out with the other people who live in my house, who are also not from here.), and I need a haircut. Badly. What's the best place in Thompson to get a decent haircut? If you go to a certain place, who cuts your hair and does a good job?
Also, I'm going a little crazy being around the same three people all the time. So if anyone wants to hang out with me, that would be awesome and would probably make the rest of my time here a lot more bearable.
(who hates relying on the internet as a resource, but oh well.)

there's a FILM FESTIVAL going down later on this year. this is a COOL THING for this town to have, if you think about it.
make some short films. tell your friends and co-workers to make films. know people who make films already? tell them to SUBMIT THEM to me and the other organizers of this shindig. submission deadline is september. (just drop me a line on here, or send me an email at email@example.com)
i helped film a puppet show or two in my day.

Thompson, I hear that the ice is off the river and that you might have a chance for some summer in May.
Anyone want to do me a favor and post when they first see a butterfly up there? It might still be awhile from now, but I'd appreciate info like where you saw it, what color it was, what it was doing, etc.

Do any of you know who Michelle Hall is?
I've gotten many strange calls for this person and I have no idea how they mix up Wilson's Business Solutions for the BRHA (which is presumably where Michelle Hall works or so I've heard).
Also, people call here asking for Rudolpho. ????
The very first phone call I received, the person just started talking about brain tumors and needing surgery. I was like "Um.. who are you needing to speak with?"
I felt bad. :/
Also, people call here a lot thinking we're Wireless Solutions. :/

So. You go outside, without your big protector because you let him sleep since it's his day off. Everything's dandy. It's dark, but you're okay. You've been outside Ashberry in the dark before and everything is usually dandy.
You're scraping the frost off the driver side window and you hear people laughing. That's a lovely sound-- a friendly sound... right?
Suddenly they're not around the corner of the building away from the parking lot.
They're behind you. You realize they're drunk... and big.
What on earth do you do when a big native guy comes up to you and asks if you know where to get bootleg from [at 7:30 in the morning]? What do you do when a fat native woman comes up on the other side of you and asks for a ride to the trailer court?
What if you stammer and accidentally say "Okay/maybe" in fear that you'll get stabbed or something?
What if she said they were harmless and they're not like "savages" or anything.
You pretend you're still scraping while they're waiting, go to the driver's side, get in your van and drive the hell away; that's what.
I realize not all native people are hostile. I realize not all drunk people are coherent enough to stab you.
I would have given them a ride. Stupid as it is, I'm that kind of person. I just didn't want to get stabbed or the like.
Freaked the hell out of me.
Thank fuck nothing happened.
What the hell would it have been like getting held at knifepoint like some people in this community?
7:30 in the frickin morning? That is pathetic.
As I made my way to the windshield to pretend scraping, I heard a girl from the rest of the group near the other building tell the woman to "leave the poor girl alone" and I prayed she would listen.
As I got in my van to drive away, she was tapping on the window for me to unlock it. Fuck that.
