On Weekend Roundup / Open Thread

Oh, but this is Wheel of Fortune!

I find the portion of Jeopardy where they talk to the contestants and they each tell us a little story about themselves the most painful thing to watch on television.

@mirandahoyt IVillage is shutting down?? So saaaaaaaad. I used to be on there all the time, but recently it has only been occasionally (a.k.a. "my fault").

On Do You Have Impostor Syndrome?

@diotima Ahh! Don't say that! It's self-perpetuating... are you the one who knows your stuff, or are you just another one who lucked out? Scary.

On Do You Have Impostor Syndrome?

@Lucienne I definitely used to be this person with compliments. Then one time a friend complimented me on something (my hair maybe? I honestly don't remember anymore) and when I somehow shirked it she said to me "When someone compliments you, you should just accept the compliment. It's rude not to." It seems a bit gruff, but we were close friends and I've never forgotten the lesson. Whenever I find myself mitigating my response to a compliment, I think of her comment and do my best to own it!

On What I’ve Learned About the Weddings I Remembered

I missed the wedding of my best friend today. I read this instead and found it charming.

Hey guys, looking for some advice. My truly amazing boss is retiring this summer. In addition to just generally being supportive and helpful, he is also in the process of completing a personally generous project that he orchestrated for me that will have a long term affect on my quality of life (sorry for being vague, but it would take a while to explain). What can I do for him to show him how much I appreciate all he's done? What would be a meaningful retirement gift? I am completely at a loss. I owe him big-time and I'm not sure I'll ever see him again once he's gone.

@adorable-eggplant Combine it with fresh oregano and basil for spaghetti sauce! Combine it with fresh peppers for salsa! If you can only do one, I vote basil over tomatoes. So versatile!

Got my garden in! Yayyyyyy!!! Hoping not to kill my herbs this year. I've been doing lots of reading this time around, and I think I've figured out what I've been doing wrong.

@j-i-a "Amazing Foods of the Midwest" could be its own article. Mmm... pie.
