This response is a day late, but I want to add that based on her site (I clicked through bc I like pearls usually). I think the jewelry is accurately described. The earrings you referenced are described specifically as “gold filled” and the pearls used on them are either akoya or freshwater, and both those options Read more

Meghan Markle has been downright abused by the press and, as far as I can tell, multiple family members. I *want* to be on her side. I support the break from the ugly fam, the move, her palace wedding she apparently didn’t like, and I think her marriage seems real and loving. Read more

I only check into GT once every couple days at the most, so you’re not too late to get seen. :) I’ve been avoided going to the AV Club article link (I read the article as screen caps) so if it’s been altered, I wouldn’t know. Read more

It is super sad what’s happened to the org though. It was originally founded by a black woman and from the outset was meant to support writers, all writers. It was taken over long ago, unfortunately. I have some author friends who were/are members and they want to see it tank at this point as well.

His actual products are generally high quality, and they’ve been organically gaining sales traction for a long time. I’m not a fan (I cannot handle his voice) but I acknowledge his brand is now a mid-level makeup staple, on par with most Sephora and Ulta products. And that’s before factoring in the advertising dollars Read more

No, get your head out of your ass. Just because you can calmly denounce an argument your comment here reveals you know nothing about doesn’t mean you’re correct.

I liked following people outside, getting their license plate numbers, and then calling the cops on them for drunk driving. Haven’t been a server in a hot minute, but I sure hope those who are follow up your 2¢ message with one of their own! :)

I don’t think Lisa Frank is trying to ruin anyone per se, though Frank herself is a famously hideous asshole who has a well-documented legacy of abusing employees and vendors, so I take that into account. I don’t think Hotels.com wants this either. Read more

Another wrinkle to this story is that Lisa Frank (the brand) has publicly shared Mucciolo’s work in the past on their social media. So there is zero doubt that at least some brand reps were/are aware of the similarities. Read more

People can want to do more than one thing at a time. Supporting something less important in the overall scheme of things (traveling with pets) doesn’t equate to not supporting all the other random-but-important things you listed.

Numerous people have explained to you now that traveling with animals—pet or service—is difficult because of a lack of institutional support. Behavior has nothing to do with it; there are very few options provided by airlines. Literally, owners of large animals (save the very wealthy) cannot safely travel with them Read more

Yeah, the answer to that horror show was definitely NOT kicking off a paying first class human customer.

Consider another story recently shared on Jezebel from The Root, about a black man having an allergic reaction to a support dog and that incident escalating until he was kicked off a plane. Buying a seat for an animal is far from a foolproof plan. Airlines routinely kick people off overbooked flights and rebook Read more

Broadly true, but there are geographic areas where hiring is more challenging due to larger factors. My spouse does a lot of hiring, and he struggles to find good people despite offering decent take home and opportunities for advancement. Read more
