If you are cash-strapped, another option is to cash the check and send her the extra $250. Might want to text first and let her know that you are doing so.
@dudeascending We had a long discussion about this topic at my work the other day. I think what people forget about it that having it all means different things to different women. Some women consider having it all to be the CEO job and the three kids and the great marriage and the summer home. Some women consider having it all to mean a fun part-time job at a deli and the ability to sew buttons back on to shirts. Most of us probably fall somewhere in between. The trick is to make sure you have the resources and support system in place to be able to have your all.
@la_di_da you and I may have the same metal bed... silver rails on the headboard and I'm pretty sure it was also Miranda's bed on a lot of Sex & The City episodes? Anyway, mine has last me five years and two moves, slats and all. Yay Ikea.
I think I did five interviews for my current job, speaking with one person each time. I also interviewed at an agency where I went in four times and spoke with eight people - that was a bit ridiculous. I mean, c'mon guys, I only have one suit. I thought maybe it was because I'm more senior now as opposed to an entry level hire that really only needs one or two interviews.
For the past three years I've done Retail-Free February, where purchases of clothes, shoes, jewelry, accessories, etc are forbidden. It amazes me how much I end up saving, and how little I learn from that once March 1 hits.
+one gajillion points for the Counting Crows reference.
@megano! Ugh, I was hoping that it was just an off week or something.
I have points to get three free books on BookMooch. What books should I look for?
My favorite costume of all time is The Bad Idea. Devil horns headband, tape a lightbulb to it. Done. If you have a friend who wants to wear a halo headband with lightbulb, you now have a Good Idea and a Bad Idea.
@MaríaJosé E.H.@twitter @professionalmess Nothing compares to the relief, however, of waking up to find all your teeth still in place.
