On How A Person With a Five-Figure Income Buys an Apartment in New York City

@rhinoceranita There's a cynical comment to make here about how the people who are making that scenario work don't have new-media jobs.

@HelloTheFuture I didn't use the term with any sketchiness in mind, just, yeah, like how the YMCA is a hotel too. They probably retrofitted the bathrooms in your place but it explains the lack of kitchen.

It has the same "this is where the Murphy bed went" look of a lot of Chicago's studio apartments -- probably all descendents of the same boarding-house cultures.

On How to Stay Married: Splurge on the Honeymoon, Not the Open Bar

@Erica Well . . . Right, again, family issues are different from "there's a cash bar and we expect you to cover your plate" or "this wedding is outdoors with no bathrooms or seating" or "you're only invited to the reception"

@eatmoredumplings Not family specifically, but a wedding should kind of be all about your guests? Like otherwise don't have a wedding.

@Jake Reinhardt Oh buddy! I hope you're right about your person, what a terrific thing if so. Also, whatever, talk about it whenever you want. A partner worth a darn isn't going to get spooked by a 35-year-old person explaining that she wants things.

Have a huge, cheap wedding but be ready for everyone you know to talk about how bad it was forever.
