Meanwhile, I’ve already had conversations with family about not attending Thanksgiving AND Christmas. The plan for holiday air travel really should be don’t. Make up for it next year and stay safe this year. Read more

Watching this movie sparked controversy in my house. I saw a bald faced bid to avoid irrelevance and become the “Goop” of former Forever 21 shoppers. My partner saw a person working through deep trauma in order to move on. Read more

I use “sign in with Google” pretty frequently on the grounds that if a monolithic corporation is going to know more about me than my own mother ever did, I’d prefer it to be one monolithic corporation rather than four.

You make perfectly valid points.... but 95% of the population simply does not give a shit and wants the most convenient option

I’ve gotten into heated arguments with *strangers* over the rent vs buy thing when they find out I rent. Half of it is the same energy people have when they tell you that you shouldn’t smoke (“you know that’s bad for you, right?”), but I think the other half is people trying to justify their choices.

What I look forward to is pizza night on Friday. It’s actually a tradition that started in my family when I was 3 or 4 years old. My parents had decided Friday was Dad’s night to cook, which turned into my Dad ordering pizza every week. We would normally go to my dad’s every Friday for pizza night and the kids would Read more

Great way to refer to a child’s family.  Disappointing that there are still many teachers/children’s leaders who haven’t figured this out in the year 2020!

This is basically an inversion of the “three fats and an acid” concept, right? Rather than cutting fats with acid, you’re more bolstering the acid (tomato) with fat? Read more

I was fortunate enough to split the difference living right by the commuter rail, which makes my commute shorter (when I’m lucky enough to be working right in downtown Seattle; the further away the office is from King Street Station, the faster things go straight to hell). Read more

My daughter about 4 years ago moved to a small town in South Jersey 15 minutes from downtown Philly by train. Best school in the the county. She found a 3 bedroom house for a little over $300k. The average house today is $500,000. They were making about $130k when they bought. Read more

I have an apartment close to work so I don’t have the daily stress of a commute.  Factoring in fuel cost also wiped out any cost savings in rent.

Yeah, that one has been demonstrated over and over again. But it also depends on what you get with that house. For example if the schools are better and you have kids/are planning on having them. If you are planning on leaving your current job in the future with the hopes of getting one in that area, etc. it could pay Read more

Honestly the best thing I’ve ever done for my mental health.  Been off social media since 2016, and I regret nothing.
