Watch out with that raspberry leaf tea business - some research says it causes early labor! (I'm serious.)
@testingwithfire It's been my experience that once your friends start to have kids, it goes back to this kind of thing, BBQs, movies at someone's house, etc, b/c the cost of the babysitter is very high, and going out again becomes a big deal.
@heavyrotation I don't know what the company that the stock options are from has to do with it, and also I didn't know it was Tumblr until you told me so...so what? There's no reason to apologize for stock options in a post detailing the who/what/when of stock options. I get that it was probably supposed to be for effect, but, it just came off as immature and a bad look for ladies in general. (to me)
You sure are terrified of someone thinking...something...about you having stock options. You don't have to throw it in everyone's face, but you also probably don't have to apologize for it 100 times in one post. It's a personal finance blog. It's okay to talk about money here.
This article made me tear up a little bit. And want toast.
I had an Executive Director throw a stack of papers in my face after threatening me if I didn't falsify grant reporting information. I laughed in her face and walked out.
I have done this. It is amazing. And totally worth it. Good for this guy.
I feel SO BAD spending money given to me as a gift on...myself. My paycheck? I have no guilt blowing entirely on myself (or - whatever remainder is left after rent/etc.). But money gifted to me, I feel like I should "use it wisely" and always put it towards bills. So...in my case, cash would be more "useful" - but in my family the holidays aren't necessarily about being "useful". Anyone else feel this way?
It's pretty appalling that people who have a mortgage don't have the good sense to update their mailing address with a) the bank or b) the POST OFFICE which is one form and would 100% take care of this problem. I mean...I'm just very confused by this.
@notfromvenus I mean, No. That is not the price of a new Toyota Corolla. And a Toyota Corolla is not considered a mid-range car. http://www.truecar.com/prices-new/toyota/corolla-pricing/ A new Toyota Corolla in Chicago prices for just under $15,000.
