On Just Because You Have a Standing Desk Doesn't Mean You Can't Sit Down

I have a standing / tall desk at work with a chair that is tall enough for me to sit when I want. I probably sit 60% of the day. Co-workers love to give me shit when I'm sitting at my standing desk. WHO SAID ANYTHING ABOUT STANDING ALL THE TIME?! We’re moving offices in a few weeks and I’ve been told that I will have to stand all the time because having a chair at my standing desk is a liability or something? I can’t bring the chair I have now. I’m a little nervous about it!

On The Cost of Accidentally Dropping Your Phone

I spent $300 on a used Nokia Lumia 1020 from Ebay a few months ago because I wanted to have a really nice cell phone camera. After I’d had it for a week it stopped working entirely. AT&T replaced it for me because it was still under warranty with them (the phone is less than a year old) and didn't have any cracks or water damage. I almost didn't bother going in to AT&T because I figured they couldn't do anything with a third party purchased phone.

On Taxes Are Due in Two Weeks. Remain Calm

I didn't pay my taxes for several years when I was young and dumb and ended up eventually paying the state double what I originally owed!

On How Much Should the Dentist Cost?

Holy shit, after reading all these comments I can’t decide if I want to make a dentist appointment right away or knock my teeth out and call it good. I can get all the nutrition I need via a liquid diet, right?

On Target Apologizes for Data Breach Again, Offers a Year of Credit Monitoring

@honey cowl I also shopped at Target during the breach period and got a new card number just to be safe AND I got the e-mail today. The weird thing is, I've never shopped with them online so I'm not sure how they got my e-mail address... my bank?! I tried to log in to their site with my e-mail address and used the forgot password link only to get "Sorry, we couldn't find that email address. Please try again or create a new account." I signed up for the credit monitoring because I figured it wouldn't hurt.

On Money Spent in an Attempt to Save Money This Year

@la_di_da One thing I’ve learned with chicken dishes is that it helps a lot to cut the chicken up before you put it in, doesn’t dry out as much. This morning I cut up 3 chicken breasts and an onion then threw in a pouch of Frontera sauce. I’ve also just used salsa + cumin in a pinch and it turned out great. By the time I get home it will have sat in there for 9+ hours.

On The Apartment Hunt

UNIVERSAL. My bf and I only got into the house we we're in because he made the first appointment to see it just minutes after it was posted on craigslist. I didn't see the house in person until after we’d signed the lease, several days before we were slated to move in.

On Cheap Eats: Saag Paneer

My Asian mother measures water in the rice cooker using the first knuckle on her middle finger, when the finger is touching the surface of the rice. It works for me, but I never cook more than 2 cups at a time, I'm skeptical about it working if you were cooking more than that.
