On Pretty Sure I Deserve A "Wife Bonus"

@SarahRose Very depressing to think of hedging one's bets in a marriage. Though if that's the angle, really get into it and demand some Apple stock as a push present, since diamonds have terrible resale value.

On 1 in 21 New Yorkers Is A Millionaire, & More Fun Facts About The Rich!

I was going to protest, "Hey, not ALL Canadians are from Toronto," but then I remembered that literally 1 in 6 of us are in the Greater Toronto Area, so.

On Chores, Then and Now

@Lily Rowan My friend had a girlfriend who never helped around the house (despite practically living there) and once, he asked her to take out the garbage to help out, and she threw out the entire inner plastic can along with the bag, and came back with only the outer metal can. She was 25 and her defense was, "Well, I've never taken garbage out before."

On Women At Work, At Home, & At Rest -- JK, At Work Again

@guenna77 I totally defer to you on law school rankings-- I'm in Canada, where there are like 15. I just was thinking of an American friend who said that in comparison there are so many more law schools in the US so you have to consider rankings more carefully.

On Women At Work, At Home, & At Rest -- JK, At Work Again

@guenna77 One factor that I didn't notice on first read but that a few commenters mentioned is that she got a full scholarship to law school in Washington. That's a big factor in deciding where to go! The quality of the law school makes a huge difference in career prospects later because there's so many programs churning out graduates-- so if she got a full ride to somewhere like Georgetown, that's not something that's on par with paying tuition to go to a lower-tier school in VA. Plus her husband sounds like a wank. Who would want to drop their career to spend their days doing 90% of the housework?

On Spring Shopping

@NoName Could be-- I don't buy my shirts very fitted and I like everything to drape, but I still end up with gaping. Probably button placement is a culprit too. Anyway, double-sided tape has solved all my problems. Long live tape!

@JaneA BUY DOUBLE-SIDED TAPE! It's the greatest. Button-down shirts gape on like 99% of women regardless of bust size, but most of the time it can be remedied by putting a little strip of tape along the placket between buttons. A cheap solution to improve all your button-down items: http://www.amazon.com/Braza-Clothing-Double-Sided-Flash/dp/B0027ZCXRO
