@Countess Maritza Your experiences and worries sound a lot like mine, except I'm a lowercase-d dude. I considered commenting earlier, but like you, worried about thread-jacking, sounding whiny, etc. So thank you for breaking this particular patch of ice! I'm glad I checked back on comments here, and I'm considering emailing Jia. Possibly. Maybe.

Maldives Pin-Up, anyone? The more of us who commit, the cheaper it is for everybody. I have zero issues with sleeping on the roof. And only a few issues with the restaurant.
Yes! A coworker of mine talks like this and it drives me bonkerssss. All day, hissy-hissing coming from two cubicles over. I figured it was Just Me being annoyed at Just Her, but apparently I have to brace (brayssssse) myself against it everywhere I go now.
Also, not to draw undue offtopic attention, but this comment is like my first toe in the waters of the very best online community ever. So, hi everyone!?!?
Thank you for applying for the position of (MY INTERNAL MONOLOGUE) in the (MY HEAD). You have the job, congratulations! Surgery time!
I expressed that very wish on facebook recently! And I'm using this, my first-ever Hairpin comment, to say I did so. CREEPY!
