Here Is Your Open Thread

E! in January will debut “#Rich Kids of Beverly Hills,” which will follow five filthy rich Los Angeles 20-somethings featured on the popular Tumblr feed #richkidsofinstagram — a collection of Instagram photos featuring the young 1 percenters posing with their expensive cars, boats, clothes, food and drink.

Because we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams, apparently.

Really rich people are driving Cadillacs in their BAD dreams.

@aetataureate Pretty much my thoughts. Also I’m probably going to watch this. I’m not going to be proud of it or like, admit to it publicly, but i’m going to watch it.

aetataureate (#1,310)

@EvanDeSimone Oh Evan, don’t do it! You have a new curtain now. Turn over a whole new related leaf.

EvanDeSimone (#2,101)

@aetataureate I think i’ll wallow in the awfulness of media culture a while longer.

@EvanDeSimone I kind of want to watch it too, though I don’t have cable. Hopefully I’ll be able to find it online so I can get my hate on properly.

EvanDeSimone (#2,101)

@ThatJenn I actually don’t have cable either so I’ll probably end up just reading snarky recaps on Vulture.

I work in an office at a computer all day and we haven’t had working heat in the building yet this winter. A nice fellow with an Irish accent came in and possibly figured out what was wrong and how to fix it today, but it won’t be for reals fixed until next week. Please tell me:

How terrible is it for someone to sit for approx 40 hours a week in an environment that ranges from 50 to 62 degree F, probably averaging about 58 degrees? Take this multiplied by approx 8 weeks.

@gl Pretty terrible. The air conditioning keeps coming on in my boss’ office, which is INSANE because it’s in the 20s here in Nashville in the morning. Maintenance keeps coming and looking at it but not DOING anything. I have about had it with them because I really love my boss and hate that he’s freezing.

@gl I am pretty sure buildings need to be kept above 59F, if you are in the US you may be able to look into an OSHA complaint?

jquick (#3,730)

@gl What about plugging in a small Heater under your desk?

Can you catch affluenza just by watching the show?

Hey Billfold-ers! Thanks for the advice last week to GTFO from my job at my rapidly declining company. I started my job hunt and I’ve already had a successful phone interview with a follow up in-person interview scheduled next week. Yay progress! You are all swell people.

WayDownSouth (#3,431)

@aproprose well done. Excellent news

EvanDeSimone (#2,101)

@aproprose Good for you! Interviewing is the worst but getting off a sinking ship is awesome.

Ugh. Every time I click on that tumblr I regret it. I don’t have a problem with wealth; I do have a problem with deliberately ostentatious wastefulness.

I’m having a terrible day at work and really want to go home and crawl in/under bed instead of to happy hour! Happy Friday the 13th, everybody.

echolikebells (#3,272)

@bowtiesarecool I am right there with you! Friday the 13th usually ends up being a lucky day for me, but this time around, it was tears and panic attacks at work. I too want to go home and crawl in/under bed instead of drinking with friends, but am compromising by napping and then going out and getting extremely, extremely drunk this evening.
