On Know Your Value, Get $10,000

THe potential reward of 10k (which is about half that after taxes) is not worth me risking makign a fool of myself onstage in front of everyone. negotiating is hard enough behind closed doors with one or two bosses- i cant imagine doing it in front of the world. Particularly with using parts of my real life job as ammunition.

On Spring Shopping

I subscribe to the philosophy of buy less but buy better. It works for me. I also wear antique (Edwardian) and sometimes higher end vintage clothing. It helps that I can sew, repair and recreate things And for fancy nights I walk around in corsets and 18th century reproduction gowns. Yeah. I pretty much should have been born in another era.

On How To Get EU Citizenship, Country By Country

Thank you for this. I desperately want my italian citizenship but thought it was off the table since my dad came here in the 60's and renounced his. My grandma still lives there so maybe there is hope!

On Unnecessary, Compulsive Frugality

i have to convince myself to throw out thread. See I embroider a lot and somehow save the little pieces to embroider w later. I don't know why I do it. A color costs like .40 cents and has enough thread to last me till i die. Yet i keep retying the leftover parts on the spool for later use (yet i buy shoes that cost a sickening amount...)

On Prudie on Having a Starving Artist for a Partner: DTMFA

@samburger i think as a woman there is a lot of pressure to stay with a man at any cost. However- as a man- there is a ton of pressure to leave a woman no matter how small the fault. I saw this all the time with my now ex. People couldnt fathom how/why i ended the relationship where as he was always being told to dump me for the most minor of things. Makes me very sad :(
