On Banning Laptops, Making More Money

@EmilyAnomaly I do that too and I share none of your midwestern sensibilities.

On Friday Estimate

I spent last weekend visiting friend's in Boston so i'm going to try to keep it low key this weekend. I'm meeting a friend for lunch tomorrow ($20) and then I'm going to try to catch up on some work. Sunday I'll have to do my usual round of grocery shopping which usually clocks in around $50-$55. The rest of the day will be devoted to transcribing an interview and hopefully making some non-terrible food. I've been slacking in that area lately. Total: $75-$80

On Banning Laptops, Making More Money

I've always wondered by cafes and coffee shops are willing to let people linger over the same coffee and sandwich for so long while working. Offering free wi-fi might bring in customers during off hours but it can't be profitable during peak times. I feel no such shame working in trendy hotel lobbies with unsecured wifi however.

On That Thing, That Thing, That 1 Thing

My one thing today has been my one thing two other times and it's to complete my taxes. Pro Tip: If you think you did your taxes MONTHS ago and are starting to wonder where your refund is, it's possible that you FORGOT TO HIT SUBMIT and now need to start over five days before tax day. Ugh. Also good luck with your expedited passport Mike. It's not summer travel season yet so you should be ok.

On Have You Changed Your Passwords?

Most of the sites I regularly use are not vulnerable. I'm holding off on changing any other passwords until the vulnerability has been corrected. In the meantime feel free to hack my long dormant Slate.com password I guess.

On Young People Terrible Though Great For Exploiting

@Meaghano Don't be! I can literally never get enough of this sort of thing. Generational stereotyping in the workplace is my official jam.

On Young People Terrible Though Great For Exploiting

I have already ranted about this on twitter, but by all means, let's take another crack at it here!

On Class on TV: Getting More Ham-fisted?

What's often overlooked when we talk about class on television is that privileged people often make for easier storytelling. The rich have a wide array of options available to them that equate to easy drama. They leave jobs, locations, and relationships with ease. Plus it's easier to explain why rich people are wearing stylish clothing. I'm not sure if our current TV climate suffers from fetishizing the upper class or just lazy storytelling.
