On Another Question About Adult Industry Work and Marriage, Answered Badly

I dunno, it's pretty easy to get blackballed in the IT industry. I think the LW has a concern.

On Cooking: Secretly The Worst?

@Penelope Pine I know you're talking about take-out, but you remind me of an issue I have with the foodie comfort food prosumer cooking set - how can people eat like that every day and not gain a ton of weight? If you're making a wild mushroom risotto with butter for everyday eating, you're taking in 1000 calories for dinner alone! I'll try something Smitten-Kitcheny on the weekends with friends, but during the week I'm strictly a clean eater.

On Cooking: Secretly The Worst?

@Katni "I decided this morning that we'll be having BLT's and canned tomato soup for dinner tonight because I am out of creativity, patience, and fucks to give this week" My mother is an amazing cook and the meal you describe here is basically what we ate 200 days out of the year growing up.

On The Economics of Reclining Seats During Flights

@drydenlane I am a smaller person, and I will tell you why we need to recline the seat - the neck rest hits us at the middle of the back of the head, forcing it into a downward tilt (and the rest of our spine into a C-shaped position) for the duration of the flight. The only way to assume an upright posture is to recline the seat.

On Why We Live Where We Live

I live in the SF Bay Area because: 1) the climate is mild and I have difficult-to-manage SAD 2) I am never the weirdest person in the room, and that's saying something 3) the place was built by smart, weird people and this is where I feel most at home. Also, because I have been here so long, this is where my friends and business connections are and I finally have a place to live that isn't a rental, a basement apartment, and is 5 minutes from the ocean, which are not trivial concerns in this place. I have lived on almost every continent and my family lives all over the US so these are things I have had to think about long and hard.

On Saying Yes to the Dress, Pt 2: KLEINFELD'S

@moreadventurous J. Crew has a few wedding pants ensembles. Not my personal style, but I love that they're doing them.

On Saying Yes to the Dress, Pt 2: KLEINFELD'S

@EA_Mann I bought a J.Crew dress and I couldn't be happier with it. After trying on mountains of lace, satin, and tulle that made me feel like a complete jerk and cost SO MUCH MONEY, I found their minimalist, preppy aesthetic fit my style much better. They make dresses in COTTON! WITH POCKETS! And you can't beat the prices, as wedding dresses go.
