On Millennials All For Socialism, Don't Know What It Means

I just want an animorph of a lazy college student turning into old economy Steve.

I've seen it and would be excited about discussing it!

On ReservationHop Makes Money by Squatting Over Something That's Free

I cannot imagine any restaurant that would be in favor of this system. At all. Between the anger of restaurant owners and customers, I can't imagine this surviving.

On GOOD ENOUGH Homes and Destinations

@Beans The WSJ real estate section is similarly ridiculous, but at least it tells it like it is and calls itself "Mansions."

On From Botanical Gardens Intern to Anthony Bourdain's Assistant

@keithtalent Oh no, you're right. They are definitely garbage.

On Do 1 Thing (And a Report on a Successful Thing!)

Accomplished last week's One Thing at the doctor's office this morning. The SCOTUS decision finally got my ass in gear to sign up to volunteer with NARAL, so that's done too.

On Being the Bert

I'm mostly a Bert in all things, but it really comes out when trying to make plans with a group. I will never understand people who are content to keep saying "I don't know/care what we do, I'm game for anything" endlessly in circles. it doesn't help that I have slightly border collie-ish tendencies - I get uncomfortable when groups of people aren't behaving in an expected way and sticking together. And I strongly dislike that if I want to make sure that plans I've made are kept, I need to confirm them the day before.

On Rich People Magazine: Summer 2014 Edition

At my old house, we used to get a subscription of the WSJ. No one in my house was paying for it - I think it was a previous tenant's subscription. Anyway, the best thing was always Thursday's "Mansions" feature section. Our shower barely worked, the kitchen was tiny, all the furniture was hand-me-down - definitely a world apart from second houses in Barbados.

On Doin' That 1 Thing You Do

I finally submitted receipts for my glasses and contact lenses so I can get FSA $ back for them. Tonight I need to purchase Mother's Day, Father's Day, and graduation (younger brother) gifts. If one is late, one is early, and one is right on time, it all evens out, right?
