On A Respite From Winter

Yaayyyy!!! I went to Mexico in July, so it was the same temp here as it was there, but it was still glorious (and also cheap).

On The Cost of Skiing

Yes! I love going on ski trips and just blowing through tons of books and spending lots of time in hot tubs/big bathtubs and drinking drinks.

On What Happens to Olympians After They Win Gold?

I want to know what happens to the people who spend their lives doing this and do NOT make buckets of money--either they are less successful or they are in a less popular sport. What's that guy who got a gold medal in Nordic Combined in Vancouver up to?

On Questionable Mailer Sent By Bank

@Fig. 1 Yeah, I own a house but I basically say, before we were renting a place to live from a nice man and now we are renting a shit-ton of money from the bank. Same thing.

On Exercising With Coworkers

A fancypants single-class studio opened on the ground floor of my old office building (Physique 57, very faddish, I don't know if it's still around)and in their first month they offered a huge discount to anyone else who worked in the building. A bunch of us decided to go together, but the marathon runner in the group went first and said it was the hardest thing she'd ever done. I have never been happier to bail on something. Edit: I just googled it and it's still in the same building but I laughed out loud at the cities they have: New York, Scarsdale, Hamptons, Beverly Hills, and Dubai. Jesus.

On Managing the Houses of the Super-rich

@Allison Ha, yes, my parents updated their kitchen last year (for the first time in their 17 years at the house and therefore the first time since I moved out), and it was so weird to stand in the middle of an otherwise 100% familiar home going WTF WHERE DID YALL HIDE THE FORKS!!

On On Setting a Price For Your Work

This is so great. My dad is an amazing carpenter and he refuses to sell his work (even back when he had a weird shaker box phase, those would have been fairly cheap and easy to churn out). I'm really lucky to have a few pieces he made as gifts, including the most beautiful coffee table ever created.
