Goop news is like catnip to me. It is impossible for anything about it not to be ridiculous. Case in point: she's opening a pop-up store in Dallas featuring, among other things, "$42 khaki napkins inspired by Gandhi and his vision of rural self-reliance." I mean, the joke writes itself.
$20 at Taco Bell?? I assume you were planning to buy for others. There's this thing called the Taco Bell challenge... it's to try and eat $20 worth of Taco Bell food in one meal. My group of friends - true Taco Bell connoisseurs - posit that it's nearly impossible.
I really need to get my open enrollment done. The only question that's keeping me from getting it done *right now* is deciding how much to put into retirement savings. Maybe a lot? 20%? I'm young, and Mike Dang did say to get that compound interest going now!!
Hate to break it to you, but Paul Rudd was *not* in the Dallas airport, just a guy who kind of looks like him in a blurry still frame. In true internetz fashion, all these sites picked up the same breathless but speculative news report after it flashed across one blog, and later had to retract it. Nonetheless, truly, you are an American Hero, not-Paul Rudd.
Let's meet in the morning so we can make a day of it.
@PrescriptionPants It makes it rather ironic that Dakota Dunes is mentioned in the article in a paragraph specifically about places that sound like they have protection from floods. As a SoDak native, I was amused (but not surprised) to see them as our "richest" town. Apparently being rich doesn't make you smart enough *not* to build your exclusive enclave at the confluence of two extremely flood-prone rivers.
I seem to recall using my TI-83+ to mostly program weird RPG code sets and play "Drugwars".
Yeah, this sounds like it was a scam. Not sure what his angle is, but the dude asking for more money when you've already proffered $10 seems like a huge red flag.
@Derbel McDillet Exaaaactly what I was scrolling down to post. "Try out places where the costs of living are cheaper, like Boulder, CO" is a sentence written by someone writing for the New Yorker.
