Do you use the Oxford Comma? I went to journalism school, so yes, I’m a stickler for it.
I love Aziz Ansari.
I loved Grace’s post The Guilty Trap. Being from the Midwest, the thinking is a bit different. Most young people who live alone or with friends would never get a cleaning lady. You wouldn’t even think about it. It’s honestly never something I thought about until I had a 3-bedroom house and two dogs. But even then I cleaned the entire house by myself most of the time (my husband would help sometimes). It’s just what you do. It wasn’t until my mom was in her 50s that she finally got a cleaning lady — but only for deep cleans every now and then. I still clean my apartment on my own, but it’s not that much and doesn’t really get very dirty. Now that a lot of my Midwest friends have kids and pets (and are in their late 20s/30s, many of them use cleaning services once or twice a month) and I’d say a lot of my East Coast friends have cleaning services regularly. Contrary to the fact that I’ve never had a cleaning service, I totally think it’s worth it if you can afford it. Personally at home I just don’t need one right now. But I’m definitely not opposed to getting one in the future. Do you have cleaning services?
Serial is over — what do you think? Do you think Adnan did it? Jay or the serial killer? Do you think Adnan should be in jail?
