On Another Question About Adult Industry Work and Marriage, Answered Badly

I feel like if you were married to a web developer, you would at some point in your years together ask, "Hey spouse, I'd love to see one of the sites you've been working on!" My boyfriend liked the Facebook page for my work, and I don't even do anything for the social media. I've read blog posts he wrote for his company. Is it not weird that he'd never show his wife any of his work?

On How Wizards Do Money: Hermione Granger

@TheDoctorsCompanion I know people hate Ginny, but it would be so cool to read one about her Quidditch cash. Do women players make less even in the wizarding world?? Did she get a sweet endorsement deal?!

This made me emotional.

On How Do You Do Groceries?

@garli Is the TJ's produce universally bad? I thought it was just the one by me. (It was a contributing factor to my eventually not going there anymore... also I live in a state with crappy liquor laws so couldn't even buy the cheap wine!)

On Paying for the Things You Never Fathomed You'd Pay For

Does anyone else still have a flip/dumb phone? I am stubbornly (perhaps obnoxiously) holding out... partly because I want to avoid the cost of a data plan, and partly because I KNOW I will just become glued to the phone and never get off the internet. But it would be great to have a map or directions app with me, I'm still looking up directions and writing them down before I go anywhere. Luckily I live in a grid city so it's hard to get too lost. But if I ever moved, I think I'd be tempted to cave so I could find my way around the new place easier. (Also I wish I could snap chat my friends, but that's less pressing.)

On The Ultimate Hummus Showdown

@zeytin I have Asmar's in my fridge right now (I think it's a DC-area local brand/company), so I went to check. Chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, salt, citric acid, garlic.

On The Cost of Flying Across the Country to Be a Guest at a Convention

@dotcommie According to the open thread, she's technically in a Maryland suburb of DC! DC proper does have some late night delivery.... not a LOT but it exists.

On Why SF is So Crazy Expensive & DC/NY Are Better

@therealjaygatsby Agreed. "More" doesn't always solve the problem.

On Saying "No I Can't" Because of Money

@kbn22 I think there were actually a few Billfold posts about the expensive birthday dinner a while ago. The suggested decline was, "I can't make the dinner, but thanks for the invite. Can I take you out to coffee/ice cream/something else at [specific time]?" That way it doesn't feel like a blow off to the friend, and you can spend real time with the birthday boy or girl. The specific time part seems key, that way the friend knows you really mean it and aren't offering a flimsy "let's catch up later!"
