On Now That I'm Married, I Only Use Crystal

@muddgirl I've only been to a wedding with a dollar dance once, but I loved the idea! A little friendly competition, actually getting to speak to the bride or groom for a minute, giving as much or little as you want and it's totally okay... just makes so much sense.

@themegnapkin Ugh that is no fun. Is there any way you can stay in a hotel or a friend's house near them instead of actually at their house? That way you'd have a place to escape to if needed.

On What Is the Worst Possible Job for You?

@Lauren_O'Neal Yuuuup. My friends are always like, "When do we get to go live on the moon?" and I am just going to stay here on the ground please thank you.

On What Is the Worst Possible Job for You?

@moreadventurous Try something in business/data analysis - you have to basically coax people into telling you what they actually want, so that you can then figure out how to provide it, and/or explain to developers what the requirements mean on the tech side. It's a great role for people who are strong in logic, but don't mind actually communicating with non-tech people, unlike 80% of the developers I know.

Also the pressure to sell is why I have never worked a traditional retail job, so terrifying.

@stonefruit I even have trouble calling people that expect to hear from me - thank god for instant messaging.

On The Last, Best Time We Met (!)

This is great - how often can we get fan fiction for abstract constructs? Next, how about...important numbers? Is pi hopelessly in love with e, or are they bitter rivals? Epsilon is infinitely small and i is imaginary, so maybe they are meant for each other?

On The Things We Hide

@keristars Yeah, this almost strikes me as making fun of how NYTimes trend pieces are always written - look, we found 4 people whose stories are kind of similar, it's a trend! But also it's an interesting topic to inspire discussion, and isn't going for laffs, so it doesn't really feel like satire.

@Jinxie Why is it so hard to find a cheap-ish mid-weight jacket?? I have been vaguely on the lookout for a couple of years, and I just keep wearing my old, stained, too-small jacket (but at least it covers my butt). I want something in between a flannel and a peacoat - what is this magical thing? Where do I get it?

On 8 Headlines That Sound Like Upworthy, But Are Simply Attempts To Express My Withering Contempt For That Collective of Neo-Liberal Douchebags

@max bread But...I...didn't? I started having ideas, then I had more ideas, so I continued to type them, and I didn't feel like rewriting the first part, since it was still true. I'm not sure this warrants internet yelling.

On 8 Headlines That Sound Like Upworthy, But Are Simply Attempts To Express My Withering Contempt For That Collective of Neo-Liberal Douchebags

I thought this was a bit on the mean side, but also one time I drunkenly emailed Upworthy that the popups were disrespectful of their viewers and driving people away, so.

Okay the last one is amazing, I hadn't read them all before I started commenting. I bristled at "Douchebags", but then, yeah, yup, these are on the nose.
