On It's The Real Do 1 Thing

I need to email my boss and tell him about a few issues from this week because he's out this week and I'm out until next Thursday (tomorrow is an off Friday for the company). It's like 4 sentences long and not important but it's so boring and I just want to stalk people I'm going to see this weekend on instagram. There's a hockey tournament so I'm just hashtag browsing everyone's posts.

On How Apartment Hunting Is Different From Shoes Shopping

@amanda w. Strong point. There's also like, neighborhood only message boards on line - I see places for rent that aren't on craigslist all the time. They want to rent to people who already live there or some one who knows some one. Maybe your friends in portland can check that out for you?

Are you going to stick with Portland?

On Uber Aversion

@ronswansonluva I've had that thought before. Also heard that argument for legalizing weed - the weed from your friend's backyard isn't funding any cartels.

On Hosting a Brunch in a Small Apartment for 40 People

Yes! New Years hangover brunch! I usually do a couple of quiches (crust made the day before), waffles, biscuits, meat and tons of fruit. Make your own mimosa bar. We always end up with way, way more champagne than we started with because everyone brings it. Everyone can also bring their dog. This year we were super excited because our neighbor's dog got out of their yard and just came over to our house. So our party was so good dogs were crashing it.

On Pretty Sure I Deserve A "Wife Bonus"

@MemphisBlues Having not read the book, only the NYT and Slate pieces it doesn't sound like it's strictly "Do what you love" as much as it's "Do what's expected of you in this group of people".

On Pretty Sure I Deserve A "Wife Bonus"

The part that makes no sense to me is that they're all highly educated rich women. Like I didn't get a master's degree to be dependent on my husband for money I did it so that I could always take care of myself. I get that they have worked out these financial deals be it bonuses or allowances or what ever, but keeping yourself pretty and in shape and the kids at the top of their prep school game isn't the same as a consistent work history. it would just make me so nervous.

On The Cost of Dealbreakers While Making Travel Plans

@ronswansonluva Yeah I was in Spain in the early summer of 2003 and it was like...112 in some cities? We had an over night train with no air conditioning and still bring up that night as one of the most uncomfortable of our lives. (It was enhanced by a man who refused to be anything other than naked and chain smoked in a sleeper car that was supposed to be all women and non smoking)

On Apartment Hunts, Communities of Excellence, and Living in NYC on $5,000 a Year

@zimm 6/16. It would never work out for us.
