Oh man, thanks for sharing this. So painful! I have to admit my husband and I had a laugh reading it, because he has literally sat his friends down and educated them on "how to ask someone out" (I've seen him do it more than once). It's not rocket science - just name a date, time and event so all the other party has… » 11/20/14 8:48am Yesterday 8:48am

The worst is when they stare at you, obviously trying to catch your eye...and then if you look back at them, well, that's eye contact! By the law of dipshits, you must now strip your clothes off and bang them immediately, as you clearly wanted to do all along! Ugh. » 11/19/14 10:09am Wednesday 10:09am

"watched that clip of Dr Taylor's apology – at the moment of his supreme professional triumph – and I felt the red mist come down. It was like something from the show trials of Stalin, or from the sobbing testimony of the enemies of Kim Il-sung, before they were taken away and shot. It was like a scene from Mao's… » 11/18/14 9:54am Tuesday 9:54am

I gave my kid what I thought was a normal name, but ever since he was born, people have been side-eyeing me when I tell them his name. And there's already been a ton of misspellings, even though the name only has four letters. I'm deeply worried that I might have accidentally given my kid a weird name :( » 11/17/14 7:05pm Monday 7:05pm

Someone posted this video in a thread yesterday. I watched it while I walked my dog, and a guy tried to pick me up while I watched it. This never happens when I'm schlub-ily walking my dog. Conclusion: this video is not weird - it's MAGIC. » 11/17/14 12:22pm Monday 12:22pm

I have a theory that these guys had dads who basically never cooked or "helped" around the house. So, to their minds, they're modern, equality-minded men...I mean, look at how much more they do than their own fathers did! And yet, from an objective standpoint, it's still nowhere near a fair split of the household work. » 11/16/14 4:14pm Sunday 4:14pm

I'm finding your assertion about finance employees working over the holidays sort of hilarious (honestly, in the kindest possible way) because I work for a major financial firm in the M&A department. We had a major deal close near to Christmas last year, and you should have seen me running around trying to get… » 11/14/14 8:32am 11/14/14 8:32am

I would definitely find that interesting. I lived in Long Island City for a few years, and it was stunning to see how quickly the landscape of the neighborhood changed due to gentrification. Someone who visited ten years ago might not even recognize it now. » 11/13/14 2:37pm 11/13/14 2:37pm

I wasn't sure I liked my husband when we first started dating - I was sort of on the fence about him. Then, while standing on my parents back porch, he started casually doing the thing with his hands and a ball, like David Bowie does in Labyrinth... » 11/13/14 2:18pm 11/13/14 2:18pm

I can't recommend this enough. Do some googling and find a place that specifically does prenatal massage - I got a few prenatal massages when I was pregnant and they were AWESOME. And at least one was a very-appreciated gift. » 11/13/14 8:17am 11/13/14 8:17am
