On Would You Pay for a Restaurant Reservation?

@madrassoup I mean, I'm never waiting 2 hours to eat anywhere, and am amazed at people who can plan far enough in advance to handle the wait without eating the people ahead of them in line.

On Job Of The Day: Holiday Dog Sitter

@francesfrances do it! I just had a friend mention it last weekend because there was something on AskMeFi about a problem with it? I'm not sure if it was from the dog, the sitter or the owner. So I'm curious about all the pluses and minuses associated with it.

On A Drunk Stole My Kale. You Won't Believe What Happened Next!

My entire car was stolen in high school! With all my textbooks inside (more important to me than the car, tbh). They found it like a month later, with everything but my (broken) radio and my Giants sweatshirt.

On On Engagement Ultimatums

@eatmoredumplings romance is such a small piece of a functional relationship! It's nice, but you need a whole heck of a lot else to make it last. Actually this is also reminding me that my dad got mom a white gold wedding band, which she didn't like, so she swapped it out for yellow gold. Dad joked for years that they weren't really married because that wasn't the ring he gave her. in about...2008? The diamond fell out of the setting and was lost (they didn't replace it for a while) so now her wedding ring is pretty much entirely different than the one they started with.

On On Engagement Ultimatums

@honey cowl I think that would drive me crazy, knowing it was coming but not knowing when. I'd just constantly be side-eyeing him and suspiciously surveying my surroundings waiting for a surprise. (I'm terrible at surprises, so this could be fun for like a week before I'd just find the box and jam the ring on my own finger)

On On Engagement Ultimatums

@Punk-assBookJockey My father proposed to my mother with a popsicle stick in his mouth while watching the World Series. It was apparently something along the lines of "So we should get married/what do you think about getting married?" (Granted I heard this story at 8, so it might be a little off, but I'm 95% sure I've got the orange popsicle detail right)

On Checking the Transactions

@jfruh my southwest charges tend to include the flight number (at least when I'm buying tickets) which I imagine is very convenient for people who need to expense them.

On The Ethics of Only Selling Clothes for the Very Thin

@Meaghano Yes, and maybe it could even have an IN STORE Tall section, like there is for petite.

On The Cost of Halloween, Part 1: Costumes

My enthusiasm for Halloween really dropped off in high school (RIP trick or treating), and then I moved to Chicago where it's been literally freezing on Halloween many times. That being said, there's a flapper themed night at the Chicago History Museum in December, so I'm considering getting stuff for that and having it double as a halloween costume.
