On Now We Have So Many Bike Racks And No Bikes

@flossy I agree - 45 mins seems so short! It would def take me at least an hour to bike from my house to my work, what with traffic and all.

On Ask Polly: I Am 40. Will I Be Alone Forever?

@Amanda Webber@twitter Pretty sure all normal, human women have some very light "fuzz" on their cheeks/lips. Those who don't are either a) very young or b) lying. I think this guy probably just needs to get up close to more real women, because I'm betting this "moustache" is the same tiny light mammal-hairs most women have.

On "Women Don't Like Themselves": Magazine Lady-Trolling in 1939

@julebsorry Oops, New York Magazine. Oh New Yorker, I'm sorry. Come here and let me stroke your shiny pages and make it all better...

On "Women Don't Like Themselves": Magazine Lady-Trolling in 1939

So "Feminism has fizzled, its promise only half-fulfilled" is just the latest version of "The truth is that, so far as its original intent and purpose is concerned, the movement for woman's suffrage has been a dismal and a colossal flop"? But I thought the New Yorker was shocking us all with it's willingness to publish edgy makeyathinks!

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose...

On Bay Area Real Estate Agents Are Kind of Making Fun of You

Definitely - I feel confident trusting advice from realtors, like “So grit your teeth, close your eyes and jump in,” and "you'll definitely need to waive all your contingencies up front". Shut up and take my money!

On Welcome To The New American Housing Bubble (In Coastal Elite Cities)

What's wrong with me that I said "Hey, it's got a dishwasher and a view - that's not too bad at that price?"

Ugh, I think I have Stockholm syndrome after too long living in NYC.

On The Five Worst Kinds of Co-Workers

@cherrispryte OH GOD YOU"RE RIGHT. I got to the bottom of the first page and my eyeballs somehow had not yet rolled ENTIRELY out of my head...and then I saw there were NINE MORE PAGES. This was right after I finished the "rubbing husband's feet" part and was audibly gagging.

this story gives new meaning to the word barf-a-tronic.

On The Five Worst Kinds of Co-Workers

"This is not the retreat from high-pressure workplaces of a previous generation"

Puh-LEEZ. High-pressure? You geriatrics never had to deal with a little beeping menace known as a Blackberry. Always on, always connected, always working. But we kids just love those digital whizbangs so it's basically not work at all but fun fun fun, am I right?

I may be a little bitter.

On My Dark Night Of The Sole

@stuffisthings Cole Haan Lunargrands. The sole of a tennis shoe, the upper of an adult shoe. Business on the top, party on the sole. My husband has like, 5 pairs of these things and he's hoarding them like they're Chateau Latour.
