On Lost Your iPad? Buy It Back In Alabama

I love that place. I have wanted to go for YEARS. Unfortunately, because I lost my perfect, cheap, brown bomber jacket in a cab and not on a plane, I will never see it again :(

On Hacks for the Worst Airports in America

@TheLifestyleCreep I will see you at EWR tomorrow at 6am. I will not be striking up conversation. Let's just nod at one another in solidarity.

On The Cost of Buying a Washer/Dryer from Sears Outlet When Six (then Seven) Months Pregnant

I agree with peutetre - those all-in-one machines have never worked for me. I have a stacked washer/dryer now and I love it a million times better than any all-in-one unit that has ever existed. Re: the broken washer: Did you take off the shipping bolts? This is the #1 reason washers/dryers don't work upon arrival. Meanwhile, this is an amazing story. Good luck, and keep up the good fight.

On How Much Do You Spend on Tattoos

My boyfriend has been trying to get an Amanda Wachob tattoo for years, but she will go to Virginia and tattoo like 2 people, and then says she wants to concentrate on her fine art, and I'm like, GIRL your tattoos ARE fine art!

On How To Get Our Belongings of Questionable Worth Across The Country

This is so exciting; congratulations! My only cross-country move so far was when I was 21. All my furniture at the time was secondhand/free anyway, so I gave all of it away, or moved it back into my grandparents' house (which is where a lot of it came from), packed up the rest of the stuff I owned (not that much) and put it in my car and drove it from STL to Brooklyn all in one go. Now, almost 9 years later, I am endeavouring to move all the way to the other side of the country and wondering how to do that with all my stuff that I love (Midcentury desks, dishes, and dressers! Eight years worth of books that actually do have sentimental value!), with no car, and without killing myself or spending a fortune. I'm looking forward to reading about how your move goes!

On How To Get EU Citizenship, Country By Country

What if my great-grandparents were born in Ireland, and also my roommate is from Ireland?

On Checks and Balances: One Lady’s Haphazard Finances

I am also the paradoxical Millennial that takes paper checks to the bank rather than using the app, but doesn't record every purchase because that is a ridiculous amount of work for something I can check immediately online instead.

On Eating Thanksgiving Dinner in a Restaurant is Cheating Y/N

@Gef the Talking Mongoose I have spent my entire adult life living super far away from family, which is why every year my other transplant friends and I get together and have a Friendsgiving dinner. If you are going out to a restaurant with friends, why not get together and do a potluck with them? I don't understand why the only options are either going out to a restaurant or staying home by yourself. I worked in the service industry for years and working holidays is the worst, so I make it a point not to shop/go to restaurants on those days, and encourage others to do the same.

On Eating Thanksgiving Dinner in a Restaurant is Cheating Y/N

I don't think it's "cheating" per se, but I would never want to be the reason someone has to work on Thanksgiving rather than getting to have their own celebration/day off, even if it's just them and their cat.
