On Two Ways to Order a Shake

I love that you guys plan on doing some longitudinal tracking.... my coworkers and I were tracking our microwave's performance on popcorn, stratified by brand. We had the just about the perfect popping times down for fewest unpopped kernels/least burning, and they replaced the microwave!

On Tax Terms, Explained

I really want to be the type of person who can pull off a kaftan. I feel like I won't be able to until I'm an older-ish lady and own more bangles.

On A Bold Notion for Baby Showers

@yeahsurefine I feel the same. I mean, I absolutely agree than men should be expected to participate in all the second-shift work that goes into making a life: housework, cooking, parenting, etc. (and it really bums me out that so many women I know have "partners" who aren't very partner-y on that stuff) But personally I'd much rather just have a ladies brunch type thing for my shower - the co-ed ones I've been to have been SUPER awkward. At a picnic one, all the men stayed outside and drank while the women went inside for present opening. It was like the 8th grade dance all over :P

On FOUND: The Best Sheets

@likethestore I see! I'm a fan of whatever they use at nice hotels, so I guess I like crisp. With my menagerie, I could never pull off that whole dreamy all-white bedding thing though.

On FOUND: The Best Sheets

@likethestore Wait, what's bad about percale? I need to know more about sheets, legitimately. (Although I'm still probably just going to buy what's on sale at Kohl's, someday I'll spurge on really good sheets...)

On Sestina About Hangovers For a 25-Year-Old From a Person Over 40

Haha! I liked this - I didn't read condescension, I read bitterness from the throes of a current hangover.... I hate the world too, the day after a bender.

On Happy Heidi-Ween

What a goofball - it's cute how INTO Halloween she is! Her costumes get crazier every year.

On Is Snooze the Enemy?

@avidbiologist Hah - I definitely pick out clothes the night before in order to snooze more. But although I technically should be to work by 8:30am, nobody's checking up on me and I'm on a salary, so there's less pressure to be on time... I want to be a reliable worker who's at my desk on time every day though!

On Is Snooze the Enemy?

Ughhhh how do you give up Snooze? I've tried, I really have. I'm at least down to 2 now.
