On How to Find 'the One' (Purse)

After years of wanting a nice bag, I bought myself a Proenza Schouler PS1 Tiny in black leather. I love small purses (like Clare V.'s mini sac), so that's the perfect size for me - good for fitting a bunch of junk but not obtrusive. The prices are eek! But I used my work bonus + bought it from a European site... meaning I pay 19% less without VAT, plus with the exchange rate now, you save several hundred dollars. Perhaps not the best thing to do in terms of US customs, but it worked for me. It's a classic look and is very nice quality.

On Hacks for the Worst Airports in America

LAX is a real mixed bag for me. The southwest terminal has been fine, mostly, and I assume the new Tom Bradley terminal is nice, but I just flew out of Terminal 2 on Air Canada and holy shit, what a mess. I've only flown out of Burbank once, but I quite liked it for its ease of navigation, peacefulness, and long term parking you can walk to.

On Lunch Spots and Budgets

My new job has a wonderful bevy of food options, but I try to bring my lunch most of the week and typically eat Japanese ramen at Daikokuya on Fridays. I go back to the office full and sleepy and happy.

On On the Scourge of 'Office Speak'

Am I mistaken about the meaning of this word or is "deck" just a misguided attempt to make PowerPoint presentation sound hip?
