@elizabeast This is exactly why I ended up getting on LinkedIn, after resisting it for ages. It's a way to stay in touch with people I really only know in a professional context, without the distraction of personal information and pet and child photos. Though the sorting possibilities of Facebook can keep acquaintances from seeing "Friend" stuff, it doesn't provide the same networking/skills reminder functions.
Hilarious. "We have a title and NO ideas! Come give us ideas! Ideas are fun, right!?" Sometimes I wish I worked in an industry where people who do things like this were punished, rather than rewarded.
Mr. Biscuit is beyond enchanting -- any one of these portraits would be the best holiday card ever.
@Megano! Not legal at all! And anyone who is fool enough to pay $1,000 a month to be stuffed into a walk-in closet near Union Square (with FOUR roommates! Probably all sharing bunk beds in the bedroom!) needs serious help.
Going to the theatre isn't necessarily expensive; BROADWAY is expensive. There are a gazillion not-for-profits in NYC that have affordable tickets, student rush tickets, free tickets if a person wants to volunteer usher, pay-what-you can nights during previews, etc. OMG, Mike Dang, do a post on seeing-art-deals! I'll help you! Even Broadway shows have deals during previews -- the TKTS booth in Times Square isn't just for tourists, and the website Broadwaybox.com has all the current discount codes for ordering online.
@BananaPeel Me too! This woman sounds great and I hope she figures out some way to out from under her ex's debt. No one likes to think about this stuff when they're getting married, but pre-nups are not just for rich people. If a woman puts all her eggs in her husband's basket (say, by moving away from her own support network for his work or being primary breadwinner while he is a full-time student), it makes sense to have a binding agreement for what might happen if the marriage ends.
@Titania Eating a Billy's lemon square is probably the closest this atheist will get to a religious experience.
@RocketSurgeon Too true. As a Star-belly (I'm not important in my industry but where I work is), I am guilty of concealing my name tag just to get a moment's peace.
