On Chatting About Work Trips and Expense Guilt

I FEEL YOU MIKE. It's definitely an "avoiding excess" mindset, but I'm also just not as bothered by things as most people? Like, I don't think taking a bus from the airport and bringing my own books/magazines/water means I don't take care of myself - I'm just easier to care for I guess.

On Paying for the Things You Never Fathomed You'd Pay For

@apples and oranges I'm also stubbornly holding out, so I got an ipod touch. You get the apps that you want, you can still technically use google maps even when youre offline since it still has some gps capability, and there's still a surprising amount of public places that offer wifi. I don't have to pay for a data plan and I won't be in despair if it gets stolen or lost because i still have my phone. I truly believe I've found the perfect way to get what I want while still Sticking It To The (Smartphone) Man.

On Open Thread: When Do You Replace Your Phone?

I don't like the planned obsolescence of the life of a phone so I try to stick it to the man by keeping my phone until I physically cannot use it.

On How Joan Rivers Did Money

"Joan Rivers is to comedy what Margaret Thatcher was to politics. Yes, they may have been 'pioneers' for women in their respective crafts, but when you take into account the countless people they threw under the bus and worse along the way, it’s impossible to respect them for it."

On Help, a Direct Mailing For a Cleaning Service Actually Worked On Me And I'm Worried It Will Ruin My Relationship

Please tip them well. If there's a deal that good, it means somebody's getting ripped off, and it's usually the cleaner.

On The Cost of Climbing

I used to climb at a co-op gym with a slackline and yoga classes - it was $30 a month FOR 24 HOUR ACCESS. It was glorious and I'm spoiled and can't bring myself to pay $70+/month for other climbing gyms, so I've lost all of my impressive awesome upper back muscles and probably can't even finish a V1 anymore.
