On "Maybe I needed to prove that I'm wife material. If he wanted 300 sandwiches, I’d give him 300 sandwiches"

Okay but the most important problem with this is why is she dating a man with hair like Ralph Cifaretto from the Sopranos?

On Thank You So Much For Being With Me Tonight to Celebrate My Twenty-Five-And-Twelve-Month Birthday

Ummm...I'm 24 and a half and I identify with more of the "mature" behaviors in this piece. I would love to spend one day not being stodgy and boring.

On Friday Open Thread


That's what I was thinking. But I actually have the opposite problem - I saw another really good prospect this week, and that roommate is making a decision early afternoon tomorrow. And I like them both, but I want to stall the people asking me to fill out the application til I know if the other lady wants me. blargh, complicated...

eta: like, could I conceivably fill out applications at both places, not giving deposits at either, and then when the applications and decisions go through, give a deposit to the one I prefer? Basically, does 'fill out an application' assume that you will bring the deposit with you to fill it out the application?

NYC pinners, halp me because I am a dummy who's only ever gotten a one-bedroom apartment through a broker (and god, don't even ask about that):

I did a roommate interview with some nice folks last night. They want me to fill out an application tomorrow morning. When will they want the security deposit? i.e. when will they want me to make a final, final, fixed decision about this? Does 'fill out an application' automatically mean 'commit to being our roommate'? HALP

I'm currently pairing this with one-pound bags of very salty pretzel twists. Mmmm, tastes like singledom.
