On The Cost of an Ugly Christmas Sweater

@guenna77 Those parties always make me think of my sweet aunt, who wears "ugly" holiday sweaters with such sheer delight and joy. She is so proud of them every year. It makes me sad to think of an entire party whose core theme is mocking people like her (even though I really don't think that most people have that in mind).

On Madison Is A Great Small City, Unless You're Black

@TheDilettantista Straight hair in a "typical" color is only typical to a certain group of people, though. It's not like it's the universal default hair.

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

@vanderlyn I have to be super contrarian here, and also try not to type in all caps when expressing the following: I find them to be the worst invention ever. I would straight up rather just have a washer and dry my clothes on a line than have to use this machine that neither washes nor dries very well. Maybe I just have a terrible model, but my experience is that it takes 2 hours to wash the world's tiniest amount of clothes, then 3-4 hours to dry them to at least 80% dry. BEWARE!!! (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

On How to Charge: By the Hour or By the Project

@spectacularisms Not to mention your bonus being contingent on the number of hours you bill, which encourages you to be less efficient.

On Getting Sugar Cereals As A Gift

The only time we were allowed sugary cereal was on vacations, because my parents would buy those like, multi-pack of mini boxes, and my siblings and I would split them up. As the oldest/a martyr I ate a lot of frosted mini-wheats and Honey Nut Cheerios while my siblings squabbled over Smacks and Froot Loops.

On Is There a Class Component to Catcalls

I mean, the "being friendly" thing is total bullshit. How come I don't see any of these "friendly" dudes saying hi to other men, to children, etc., after they've finished shouting 'HEY BABY' at me? You're friendly, but you're only friendly to young women?

@ccq Agreed, but if you're going to make up Fake Understanding Husband, can't you give Fake Spendy Wife some lines too?
