On Office Bathrooms: Where Everyone Is a Disgusting Monster

Women in our building routinely use the sinks to rinse out their lunch containers and of course they get clogged. LOATHE.

On The Joy of Holiday Travel

Luckily my parents in Oregon completely understand that I love having a more affordable Christmas with my NYC family (ie, my friends). They are happy to see me at any other time of year.

On How to Charge: By the Hour or By the Project

As a side note, did you charge a rush fee for that job? That is perfectly legitimate and a good way to ensure that you're compensated for performing under stress.

On John Oliver Throws Stones at the Lottery

This show is so good. I'm usually shocked by what his team digs up and frequently wonder why I'm laughing so much when it's all so awful.

On Voters Decide They Want Higher Minimum Wages

Yay!! Ahh, the silver lining to news that otherwise makes me want to crawl back into bed. (Oh this and the fact that Scott Brown was defeated in two different elections in two different states, LOL.)

On Lunch Spots and Budgets

I agree that's a nifty app... but for my own personal budget, I cannot fathom spending $100/month on lunch O.O Lunch options in my work neighborhood are expensive and boring, which is added incentive for brown-bagging all the time!

On The Cost of Things At My Annual Physical

I always refuse to fill in super-sensitive info like my SSN (!!) and my credit card. Because I have been to enough doctors offices to see that shit is way too disorganized for me to trust them to keep that info safe. If they really truly need it later, we can sort it out then.

On 2013 Median Household Income is 8 Percent Lower Than 2007 Income

1999 - I was 12, and life was a wide-open beautiful book of possibility. (After all, this was pre-post-9/11-America.) Income: $0 2007 - I was a college sophomore, working a part-time job that I was terrible at (selling clothes). Income: ~$10/hr 2013 - I was 26, had my first grown-up job, and just got a raise to $50,000. (That doesn't predict how 2014 has gone, wherein I'm Following My Dreams and also Taking A Paycut to do so...)
