On The Fraud Alert Specialist Who Calmed My Nerves

@potatopotato did not think of that! I was a receptionist at a credit union a ways back and a customer called looking for their last five transactions. The 6th one was "Extenze." I was SO thankful he didn't ask me to continue reading them to him.

@Allison They should be required to use their DBA name on credit card transactions!

@andnowlights the worst is when a bar/restaurant runs the tansaction through their holding company's name. I don't know what 1312 Halsted LLC is!! Throw me a bone here.

On Monday Check-in

@andnowlights any chance you have a link to that lemon poppyseed zuchhini muffin recipe? It sounds delightful. My garden (and CSA share) are overrun with zucchini so I'm looking for ways to use it up.

On Ask A Human Who Actually Practices GTD ('Getting Things Done')

Is the one list paper? Word doc? On your phone? Where do I start? Do I read the book that I've owned for 2 years as the first T that I GD?

On My Last $100: 48 Hours in Chicago

@CaddyFdot also get yourself some Metropolis and Intelligentsia coffee. Then you can weigh in on the "best in Chicago" debate.

On My Last $100: 48 Hours in Chicago

@CaddyFdot I love Watershed below Pops for Champagne. And Little Goat. I'd grab a coffee and walk to the planetarium even if you don't go in. The city views from Museum Campus are A+.

@Cup of T @Cup of T I definitely can't do seitan, but their veggie burger is one of the best I've had. And for whatever reason, their chai. I'd add Handlebar even though they have fish options because their fried avocado tacos are my favorite dish ever.

On My Last $100: 48 Hours in Chicago

Chicago Diner recently put out a cookbook and I went to the release party above a Whole Foods and there was free vegetarian food and I felt so cool. Also, Women and Children First is a favorite of mine. Love grabbing something there and reading it at Kopi Cafe down the street.
