Amazon just canceled HQ2 in New York. Golly, it’s almost like a successful company that asks for $3 Billion in tax breaks isn’t appreciated anymore./s
For years I was a faithful Olay user. Not the fancy serums and crap, just their basic moisturizer. But now they have changed their formula so the lotion smells like Old Man in Downscale Nursing Home. It’s super unpleasant and also kind of creepy(I feel like the fragrance people would not deliberately develop such a…
I luuuurve crap TV. Don’t get me wrong, I love great TV too (genuflects in the direction of The Good Place) but something about sitting down to watch junk seems incredibly decadent. I am a bit concerned at my inexplicable fondness for the NCIS franchise though. Is it just one of those things that happens with age?…
So here’s a question I’ve been having that I don’t want to google because my imaginary answers are way more amusing. Can you carbonate any liquid in a Soda Stream? Like could you pour juice in? Wine? Chicken broth? I suspect both carbonated Merlot and chicken broth would be gloriously disgusting but I don’t see why it…
This letter today. I can’t even. The poster writes that she and her colleagues are fined $2 a minute for every minute they’re late. IN CASH AS SOON AS THEY ARRIVE. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK??? WHERE IS THAT CASH GOING?
So I’m currently in the giddy bitter fuck you stage of the job search. Just one stop in the endless cycle of:
I cannot stop laughing. Julian Assange tried to sue the embassy for asking him to clean up after himself and his cat! Buddy, you’re not a prisoner, you can walk out that door anytime. And after 6 (6!) years there you’re not a guest any longer so asking you to clean yourself, do your own laundry, and clean up your…
My upstairs neighbor has picked up a fun new habit. They have their radio/TV on with heavy bass for about half an hour at 2:30 am. I need to figure out a non-insane letter to leave them so that they at least turn the volume down. My current draft of “Fuck you, you fuckity fucking fuckers” lacks specificity.
Just in time for Halloween from the New York Time Magazine’s “Candy” Issue:
Infinity War sucked ass guys. I know I’m late to the party on this because I waited for it to come on streaming, but I’m still mad about it. And I have some ideas on how it could have been better. Feel free to write your own ideas in the comments too!
I’m putting a spacer just in case - below is a stream of consciousness about society’s thinking on sexual abuse.
Amy and Nick were stiff last week but this week both of them clearly said “screw it” and went full steam ahead. It was hilarious and charming and they should never ever stop making this show! Simon Doonan got into the wacky groove too and Etsy lady tried.
So I was just reading the NYT Magazine article on GOOP and Gwyneth Paltrow which was both depressing and dangerous for my eyes (the rolling, so much eye rolling). While reading I realized that I was clearly missing the trend of lifestyle branding that has been sweeping the world for a while now. Clearly I am not…
Brought to you by my neighbor with poor digestive health and worse bathroom manners. Definite TMI
So in the NYT article they (Seema Verma and the other vermin from the administration) say they HAVE to suspend payments due to a court ruling from February? Just as companies are deciding on rates for next year?
It’s too hot and I’m feeling all cabin fever-y because I don’t want to go outside when it’s over 100 but I don’t want to stay in either and listen to my ac struggle.
We know that Trump and McConnell are going to nominate the asshattiest asshat for the coming open Supreme Court seat. And we know that most Dems will vote no (Manchin and possibly Heitkamp aside). We also know that Collins and Murkowski will wiffle and waffle and fuss in the press before, most likely, they vote yes to…
Here’s the PDF of the plan to re-organize the U.S. Government. It’s a lot of word salad to cover up the nastiness. The goal is to consolidate power and make it easier to cut programs they don’t like.
Trump wants to reorganize the government. Or rather Mick Mulvaney and the conservative nutters like the Kochs and Heritage Foundation do.
