I feel bad for Jennifer.
@stuffisthings Those names all seem fine/non-stripperish to me? I may be biased, as a Jacqueline
@teacuptempest Do you have an e-mail? Depending on the part of Brooklyn, I can recommend one or two decent ones. (Got my current apt. through one of them. We were able to negotiate the fee down to one month's rent, because when my landlord heard it was 10% he was like No that is INSANE, tell him you are paying one month and that is it. My landlord is awesome.)
Apt. hunting in NYC is the worst, but my current apartment was the result of a reverse bait-and-switch experience. My roommate and I showed up to an apt that wasn't the same at the one in pictures -- it was SO much nicer. The broker had just been too lazy to update the page, which showed a messy, much smaller and darker apartment. I think that's the only reason it hadn't been taken off the market already, because we were incredibly close to the end of the month and about to be homeless.
@kellyography I am very unphotogenic too. I remember sorting through one of my good friend's photos with her, and we found it really hard to pick ones out for her to order, because they were all so good. And then a week later, we did mine....and it was hard to find even a few good ones because I do not photograph well, and photographed particularly horribly as an awkward teen. Even my mom was like "yikes, at least they aren't as bad as your brothers!" (Note before anyone thinks I have the Worst Mom: My mom is loving and non-critical of appearances! But these photos were BAD)
And what did they tell you? That it was a great decision. I found that surprising, because every older lawyer I know is like "DON'T GO IT IS MISERABLE BEING A LAWYER IS THE WORST." Ah, Anecdata.
@Morbo Seriously! Whatever it is that Kim does, I hope she considers it a service and doesn't accept a salary for it.
Man! That is right by my work. If I wasn't headed to a lecture afterwards I would totally come!
No! I was like 9 pounds and 11 inches! And I am a completely tiny 5'3.5 inch human now. So no correlation. Also: this girl I grew up with was born two days before me, and was like a 5 pounder. She grew up to be pretty broad shouldered and around 5'11. So there.
@singstrix Goat cheese is A-OK for the lactose impaired among us. As are most hard cheeses, actually.
