Well, a lot of people fight over whether it’s Angela or Tony but personally, I think it’s Mona... Oh, sorry, wrong argument.

I honestly think this will increase the quality of remote bonding I have with my nieces. I hope this ends up being true!

6.5 years. That’s how long it took me to realize that my husband had been regularly cleaning our dishwasher while I just assumed it took care of itself. Only came out on a recent trip to Home Depot. Whoops.

I started using wireless charging whenever possible after I found myself going through too many cables. Cheap cables, expensive “will last forever” cables. Maybe I’m just a bad phone user but they would fail too often, look unseemly, and it’s easier to just use wireless and not worry about it.

While these points are all valid, in my experience, the only times I’ve been in a position where I feel stranded and unable to charge my phone are instances where something went wrong with my cable. I’m thinking of investing in a backup batter with wireless charging for this very reason. Read more

Meaning: if your situation is that you’re in a wealthy school district, you’ll make expensive changes to ensure the safety of your students and staff but if you’re in a poor school district, you couldn’t even buy pencils before this so you’ll just kinda suck it up and die. Read more

When we moved in together, I made a huge stink when I caught my boyfriend using soap on my priced vintage cast iron skillet. I insisted how you can’t use soap and he was going to destroy the seasoning, etc. Then I came around to this not really being true... but I haven’t brought myself to fessing up to it so... I Read more

Yes! I totally see the benefit from this and think it’s going to be a great feature. There are probably a dozen+ apps on my phone I hardly ever use but don’t delete because in that ONE circumstance or if I HAPPEN to do x or visit y I would need it. Hopefully this solves that problem.

They do! Even local ones which I rarely visit. Re: the post cards, I try with all of my correspondence, to be in the habit of scanning (with my phone) and saving a letter or postcard before I send it. Doing so with the postcards lets me have a fun digital memory of the postcards too.

Me too! My favorite is to find a local shop selling art/design items from local artists and get postcards there. Finding stamps and a post office also ends up being a fun project an excuse to explore the city I’m visiting in a different way. It’s led me to a gorgeous post office in Prague, to a 6th floor post office Read more

I’d recommend to save money from souvenirs and spend that on experiences. I look back at the times I traveled while broke and bought crappy souvenirs (for me or for friends back home) that really ended up just being junk that collected dust. Photos ended up being much more significant in the end.

Get Out, Jordan Peele’s directorial debut would make my list. Because of the (spoiler) body swapping technology, I consider it sci-fi enough to get on the list. (But that’s a lot of personal preference.)

Yup! Though I’m more likely to schedule it for Friday afternoons so it doesn’t look like I snuck out early lol. I’ve actually found scheduled emails to be such a handy tool that people underutilized. For non-sinister purposes, I also have used it in the past to schedule emails to large groups to be delivered at times Read more

Schedule emails to go out at certain times so it looks like you are at your computer drafting and sending them now when really you wrote it yesterday and scheduled it to go out this afternoon while you are binging something.

You know what would be a fun bill to introduce to Congress (with no chance of passing?) Something along the lines of “Copyright will expire permanently and automatically for any text where x e-copies (or percentage of population or something here - get creative) are not available in library system. Or something. But Read more

Shouldn’t the Federation have like a dozen of these of their own? We know that there have been quite a few Borg incursions into the Federation. We know that the Federations has damaged or destroyed many Borg cubes. At least some of them have to have surprised partially intact.

I’ve started to do a two-phase approach to this. While traveling, when I get a minute, I try to quickly delete the “bad” photos (blurry, head cut off, boyfriend has a sneer, etc.) Then I wait about a week (or maybe even the flight back) to go through and purge (“curate”) down to the essentials. I like waiting a few Read more

While this is great news, the reality is that I most definitely will regularly eat 16-30% of a larger serving of nuts than I think I am so... I imagine it will balance out.
