On Some Costs Associated With a Relationship

@coupdefoudre Perhaps a valet, because someone's fancy? http://www.sterlingandburke.com/store/JW-Hulme-Desk-Valet-in-American-Heritage-Leather.html

On Grateful for the Opportunity

@andnowlights This whole comment thread right here, this is me, as well as the article. Argh! How do you figure out what you want to do in life? Is there necessarily a "thing" for every person? I'm reasonably content in my low-level admin job but I aspire to "more", but what that is, I'm not so sure. So I don't know what direction to take.

On Money Spent in an Attempt to Save Money This Year

@la_di_da Isn't the advantage of a fancier one like the one above is that it turns to "warm" after the timer runs out? So you can get back from work and it'll be warm, but not cook any longer.

On Paying Extra for a Flight for the Convenience of a Better Seat

I got to fly first class for the first time using points this holiday weekend and while service and the extra room was great, I felt extremely self-conscious and like they knew I didn't belong, going so far as avoiding looking at the boarding economy passengers so as to not stare my guilt in the face. I haven't abandoned you! This was just the only seat left!

On Can We Talk About the Aldi Grocery Store Chain?

@sea ermine I didn't care much for Aldi or Lidl. Netto, however, was my jam.

@pearl Look! You can get it for less than $100 on Overstock: http://www.overstock.com/search?keywords=cuisinart+convection+toaster+oven&SearchType=Header !! I am obsessed with this thing.

On Here Is Your Open Thread

@CubeRootOfPi I love love love my Cuisinart convection toaster oven – like this one: http://amzn.com/B000PYF768 , with the front panel buttons but mine’s an older model. I use it for everything – we don’t even have a microwave. You can probably get an older, refurbished one on Amazon too, I actually got mine off Craigslist. It’s the best.

On Live Your Life on Your Own Terms

I'm sorry but we need to see a picture of Louie. I imagine him as a jaunty Jack Russell terrier with a little newsboy cap.

On Writing Instruments

I am a fan of the Pilot Precise GRIP in black, extra fine. Feels a little heftier to me. I have, however, started ordering fancier pens out of curiosity, the Lamy Safari and Kaweco Sport Rollerball. They're refillable at least!
