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?

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!
