@HelloTheFuture That's the thing that makes me shudder a bit about online dating (have used OKC and Grindr before, using neither currently)... the whole "picking someone out of an online data dump" idea. Tangentially: I know it's not helpful for my dating prospects, but I really struggle with feeling like all of my married friends have these wonderful organic stories about how they met each other in meatspace-at school, at church, as coworkers, through volunteering, traveling, etc etc...and since I've failed to do so, I become sort of "relegated" to trying to find someone online. It's a tough psychological hurdle, one that I have major trouble getting over, even though I can explain it intellectually.
Don't forget Officer Marge Gunderson in Fargo! Good cop. Oh, those were the days.
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".
