On Friday Open Thread

I'm spending my weekend sending out resumes, which I am not particularly looking forward to, but I am planning to take lots of breaks for Parks & Rec on Netflix (I'm up to the middle of season 4 and developing a huge crush on Ben Wyatt)

On Lesser-Known Birthday Party Themes

These suggestions may come in handy, since I wanted to play mini-golf at the National Building Museum for my birthday, but no one wants to wait in line for 2 hours to play mini-golf at the NBM for my birthday :(

@camanda Hi Puppy! Who's a good girl?
My puppy is 3 yrs old now, and (slightly) less of a terror than he was 2 yrs ago.

On Gifts, Brolessness, and More Grad School From the Underworld

@Emmanuelle Cunt I agree w/all of y'all, I just wanted to mention how much pressure there is to be part of that unhealthy culture, it's not necessarily that he is being "too competitive" or something. It's almost a requirement in Arch school - I had professors who would talk about how you had to stay up all night to be part of "studio culture". (And if you're not part of "studio culture" everyone will hate you and/or give you bad grades) But I do wish I had been able to withstand the pressure because I would have been a) healthier and b) done better work.

On Beauty Q&A: Grays, OTKs, and Sleeping in Rollers

@Dancersize I like the Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, but I don't know if it really makes my nails stronger. It makes the skin around them less dry though. And it smells good, if you like lemon. It is kinda greasy but I put it on right before bed.

On Friday Bargain Bin: What to Do With Your Allowance This Week

@madge I am a notebook-addict too! And I agree re: plain or graph paper, but more because I'm going to draw in them rather than write.

On Friday Bargain Bin: What to Do With Your Allowance This Week

@The Lady of Shalott I shop at Delia*s, but then again, I shop at all the teenager stores. I ain't care! But also the teen clothes fit me better because I'm short and lack curves. And I look younger than I am. The last time I was at American Eagle, the girl at the register asked for my ID (I assume to check my name against my credit card, not my age), and then she looked at me and was like, "Oh, wow, I thought you were, like, my age." I was probably twice her age.

On The League of Ordinary Ladies: A Trip to the Cinema

@Megan Patterson@facebook Just get a large dog that hates strangers - this will solve the "aimless walk" problem and the "danger of being murdered" problem at the same time!
