On The Woman We Hired to Help Us Communicate With Our Cat

I like this a lot! I don't believe in psychics at all, but at the same time this is a cool concept. Cats you guys.

On The Problem With Being a 'Regular'

@Slutface And I can understand feeling awkward about it, but particularly when it's the case of just a drink... they can remake it the way she wants. NBD. Since she's a well liked, tipping customer, no one will think anything of it.

On Purchases Made in Hope of Self-Improvement

Eyebrows are so important! I am actually a huge fan of the Elf eyebrow kit. It comes with a gel and a powder and a little brush for only $3. Highly recommended.

On Cure Your Financial Anxiety, Ask Me How

I liked this a lot. I'm not so great at visualizing space though; I tend to stick to human interest stories that make me cry (but they have to be hopeful, not just sad).

On Here Is Your Open Thread

@snackcarts I would definitely recommend Meetup! It might take some time to find a group that has your type of people in it, but they will be out there! And the general social groups on Meetup can be a great way to learn about new/fun things going on in your area. You can also try the regular bar route. Find a bar you like, go there often, and occasionally early. Make friends with whoever works there. They will know all the other regulars, and you will become friends with them. Boom. My other recommendation is just to go to all the free events you can find that sound interesting, with the express intent to talk to new people. Lecture series/professional mixers/promotional events. I prefer the ones with free alcohol, so I can have a drink and chill out for a minute before approaching anyone. Some times it will be a total failure, but other times it will work out super well and you'll meet cool people! And don't think you have to live in NY/LA for there to be a huge number of events like this. I live near Detroit, and there are lots of options. I have had a hard time making new friends too, but these are things that have worked for me, at least to some extent.

On Being a Cheesemonger Is Better and Worse Than You Think It Is

People would definitely pay (and pay a lot) for an in home cheese tasting! You should definitely give it a shot! Also, this was wonderful.

On Should You Buy a Holiday Gift for Your Boss?

@moreadventurous Oh yeah do the card! I totally missed that part because I wasn't paying very good attention. A thoughtful card is always the best.

On Should You Buy a Holiday Gift for Your Boss?

@moreadventurous I say buy her a nice little bouquet of flowers or something. That way you can help her to brighten up her home for her birthday! Don't feel like you have to match what she gets for you, because she's your boss and presumably makes a lot more than you.
