On Close-Reading Your Boss' Brief Emails: A Guide for the Anxious

I once received an email from a notoriously difficult supervisor that only contained two words: "good job". No punctuation, no caps, and still possibly the nicest thing he has ever said to me. I can still find this email at a moment's notice, despite the fact that this was two jobs ago.

On A Parable Without Commentary

@eoporto ACK, a friend of mine, I swear it was a friend and not me, picked up a Marie Claire on an airplane, and apparently in the middle of some article about Olivia Wilde it mentioned that she had been dating "Salman Rushdie, ex-husband of Padma Lakshmi." AND NO FURTHER EXPLANATION OF WHO HE IS.

On Judge Marilyn Milian Rules: John The Diver

@JoanTition The amazing part is that she always looks FABULOUS. Like every fucking time.
On a side note, I'm frequently surprised by how many Miami judges became television judges. I used to live near Cristina Pereyra, and I have distinct childhood memories of Judge David Young and that his chambers were filled with penguin figurines.

On Judge Marilyn Milian Rules: John The Diver

Sooooo, I've known Marilyn for a while, what with being a child of lawyers in Miami, her kid going to my high school, etc. My last BF met her at a Christmas party I dragged him to, and he claims to this day that one of his proudest moments was arguing her down about some point of law or other (I do not understand, being neither lawyer nor law student).

On And the Winner of the 2012 Deviled Egg Pageant Is...

@cherrispryte I generally follow this system: I weigh my enjoyment of eating an animal against my perception of how much pain that animal feels when it's slaughtered. The result is that I will not eat octopus or chicken (mostly because their whole lives suck in factories, not just their slaughter), but I will continue to eat red meat and fish.
