On Cooking Time

@Tams That sounds stressful! My situation is not exactly analogous to yours, but I do have a toddler, and rather than spend the time between getting home and putting him to bed cooking, I usually cook the following night's dinner after he goes to bed. It's not, you know, *fun*, but it's more fun than the alternative.

On Food Coops, In Park Slope & Elsewhere

I had a friend who joined with her husband, and when he wanted to quit, she had to tell the Co-op that they got divorced so that they would let her stay on her own. Then they got divorced.

On Cooking Time

@Liz I feel this way too. Cooking can be a form of self-care! If Nicole and I were friends (and local to each other), I would invite her to eat dinner with me and my family, because I get super apathetic about cooking when I am lonely.

On The Vomit Jeans, or: What I Did to Avoid Paying $70

@PeggyDear I use a baking soda/white vinegar combo for literally all of my cleaning. It's a great combo! And it fizzes very satisfyingly.

@steponitvelma 909? I went to college around there! Had no idea it was much-lampooned.

On How Your 401(k) Stacks Up Against Fortune 500 Companies and Other Stories

@Stina My company matches 25% of 6%, AND it vests over five years! So after one year you get a 5% match, two years is 10%, etc. I tell myself it's still a good return on my money.

@garli Before it said 312 for both LA & Chicago! But I didn't even know about 213. I am no LA expert.
