On It's Time to Talk About 'Snowpiercer,' the Best Action Movie of the Summer

@Red After seeing the movie again, I didn't interpret the monologue as a positive story of how tail-sectioners cooperated to save themselves. Once I knew Gilliam was in cahoots with Wilford, I thought that he probably only cut off his arm once he saw the right percentage of tail-sectioners had been killed/eaten. As a result he became their hero and leader, but he was betraying them from the beginning. It was all orchestrated. This movie was bleak as fuck and I LOVED it.

On Think Of The Money I Could Make By Simply Ruining My Life With Airbnb

@MollyAuden Yeah, but you're not truly making a personal connection, are you? In the scheme of life. Non-potable water and poopy showers are preeeeetty significant issues that future guests need to be warned about. BUT I do agree that reviews are murky waters (ha). Which is why I also take issue with Yelp. If you have complaints, voice them literally. Business owners truly appreciate this, It's nearly always best to be upfront with them. Same goes for Airbnb hosts, I think, if they are honestly trying to be good hosts. In your case, he would then fix the problems, and future positive reviews are more likely to be truthful.

On So You've Decided To Join The CSA

1. The first step is to Google the shit out of your CSA and worry it’s not the “right” CSA to join. UGH, YES. Why does my friend always get rhubarb and no matter how many different CSAs I sign up for, I never ever do?? Also my new CSA this year said this in the 'welcome' email: "We know we’re not the only game in town...I'd like to think that [our] members are more adaptable, and curious than other folks." That smug little humblebrag...

On Investing a Dollar; Cupcakes Are Out; Our Digital Expenses

@bgprincipessa It's still worth a try. One time it took a while for an TWC internet guy to come to my place, and as an apology they cut my bill from $55 to $25 (it has since arbitrarily crawled back up to $47...)

On The Realities of Being an Adult With a Job Through Beverly Cleary's Mr. Quimby

I remember the scene where Ramona wants her father to quit smoking so she draws a sign that says "NO SMO - KING" on two lines, and Mr. Quimby pokes fun, saying, "Who is this Nosmo King??" and Ramona is insulted/pissed/frustrated. OH DADS.

On Your Friday Jam: Roth IRA

Good point! Maybe she just had a mattress full of $5 bills and every birthday she'd take one out.
