You can get around that 10 articles a month thing by just opening the story in a different web browser. Yes, using internet explorer sucks but it is worth it if I get to read that 11th article FO FREE.

On A Wristwatch That Alleviates the Struggle (of Long-Distance Love)

When I studied abroad in Australia my mom bought a watch in an antique store with two faces to keep track of the crazy time difference (15 hours I think?). I think the watch cost $15, much more affordable!

My then-boyfriend lived in Indonesia for ten months and I was on the East Coast of the US, so that was 12 hours then 13 after daylight savings time ended, which was pretty easy math at least, but didn't leave us a lot of good times to talk. Crying into my skype camera at 6 am every morning was super fun! But at least my mom let me borrow her fancy two-faced watch. And we ended up getting married so it worked out okay :)

And tru dat about never ever wanting to do that ish again. HELL NO.

On A Real Argument for Doing That Thing Where You Rub the Chopsticks for No Real Reason

I knew someone who refused to eat the "ends" of her baby carrots, so she would basically only eat one half of each carrot. I asked her how she knew which end of the carrot was *The* end but she could never answer me. I'm still wondering to this day.

On Orange Is the New Black Is the New House of Cards

YES. This show has been sucking up all of my time the past few days. Also my data as I've been watching it on my phone at the gym. Makes the stairmaster a whole lot better, but that AT&T bill at the end of the month is gonna be rough. WORTH IT.

On The Evolution of Playgirl: Reviewing Three Decades of Covers

Is that really Goran Visnjic on the cover? I feel like that might be just a random greasy dude. I used to watch ER back in the day but I didn't remember him looking that shiny and smooth, damn!

On What Is a "Water Fountain"

@rien à dire My North Carolinian Grandma called Ruby Tuesday "Ruby's Tuesday" which never ceased to amuse me/annoy my mom. She was also basically deaf, which may have added to her pronounciation confusion. I still refer to that classy establishment and the Stones song as "Ruby's Tuesday" in her honor.

On Living Alone in Indonesia

Indonesians love Avril! My boyfriend did a Fulbright in Indonesia from 2009-2010 (He was near Banyuwangi, so pretty close to where you were, I think?) and his students loved Avril. He had me send him a bunch of her songs from my 9th grade Avril fandom days. Having all of her older jams gave him a lot of street cred with his students, obviously.

And nasi pecel, yum. I had that for at least 2/3 of the meals I ate when I went to visit him. Peanut sauce on everything, I say!
