My crazy boss was fired three days before her resignation took effect! The next day I got promoted! Instead of being a receptionist, I'm actually working on an account! I work in medical advertising now!

...my degree is in theater. I know nothing. I am the Jon Snow of advertising. Oh god.

So I am having some mixed feelings.

On Get This Look: Dining Utensils

This is so beautifully absurd. I am trying not to laugh out loud and/or pee myself at work. Yes.

@Absurd Bird I am with you on this one. INSIDE the labia? No bueno.

That said, I have been considering getting sugared/waxed again. Just for funsies, maybe once or twice. As a surprise for the people who regularly see that business, slash because I do things on a whim sometimes. I just need to find a good place where I can get it done on my lunchbreak, and being in Manhattan I am paralyzed by choice!

I AM PRETTY SURE ONE OF MY COLLEGE FRIENDS IS HERE, BASED ON LINKS SHE'S BEEN POSTING ON FACEBOOK.

Is it true? Is this the Beth Case Scenario?

ALSO my horrific boss is leaving NEXT THURSDAY. FOREVER. It's like finding out an abusive partner is moving to like, Milwaukee or somewhere I will never go. No judgment, Milwaukee pinners, I just probably will never end up in your city. But I could be wrong.

On "What's the Worst Thing That's Woken You Up in the Dead of Night?"

@themegnapkin It was mostly psychological, which I realize was not clear from my post!

I lived in a shitty basement apartment, and he refused to kill any of the house centipedes in the bathroom, or the spiders in the bedroom, and would mock me for getting upset. He would also email me pictures of giant bird-eating spiders to scare me, and occasionally sat on top of me while I freaked out about a spider close to my face.

FORTUNATELY I drove away from him and never looked back just over three years ago. So yay!

Accidentally deleted this instead of editing it. But ugh I hate all of you and also I hate spiders and house centipedes, thank you scumbag ex for torturing me with those you abusive fuckface.

However, I have also been awakened by a treebranch falling on (but somehow not breaking?) my bedroom window, which was pretty fucking scary.

On Industry Rule No. 4,080: You Don't Want to Date Don Draper

@adorable-eggplant I just checked-- apparently after you collect 2000/5000/10000 points, you get a $20/$50/$100 coupon for any restaurant you can book on the site? And you usually get 100 points per reservation, so it's mostly a "yay, points!" thing, unless you go out to eat a lot and plan to do so in advance.

On Industry Rule No. 4,080: You Don't Want to Date Don Draper

@adorable-eggplant That's why you make 7PM reservations and show up at 6:30.

Is making dinner reservations not a thing?

My partner is obsessed with making reservations on Open Table. He likes collecting points
