That sounds like the dress code where I work. I sometimes dress more formally just because, but today I'm wearing nice jeans and a light cardigan with 3/4 length sleeves. I'm generally a cardigan person, so I'll recommend those - they tend to look a little dressier than an ordinary shirt, even when they're paired with… » 10/22/14 6:42pm Yesterday 6:42pm

It is sort of interesting. There are certainly things about her that can be mocked and condemned, but most of them aren't unique to her. Being married three times is relatively common among celebrities, there are apparently plenty of sex tapes to go around, and she's not the only person lacking in dramatic or musical… » 10/22/14 12:53am Yesterday 12:53am

I think that's a reasonable enough conclusion for him to come to. I think part of why his essay rubbed me wrong is that I didn't see full recognition on his part that the reason that the sex workers he meets seem so amazing compared to the women he sees on dating sites or meets at singles mixers is that he's paying… » 10/21/14 7:30pm Tuesday 7:30pm

1. Yes, the baby might end up rejecting the trendy nipples or being allergic to the expensive body wash. The baby might not use or be allergic to an off the registry gift, either. There's a certain amount of risk in choosing presents for a child who doesn't exist yet and parents whose ideas about parenting are… » 10/21/14 6:40pm Tuesday 6:40pm

If chivalry is dead, I'll have a hell of a time celebrating at its wake. It was never anything more than a series of compensatory gestures toward relatively wealthy, white women (because, please, no one bothered with chivalry toward their slaves or the impoverished widow who took in washing or to sex workers) to… » 10/21/14 4:06pm Tuesday 4:06pm

You can tell that's one of the things they fight about. If your strategy to win back the affections of your beloved consists of little more than letting her win a handful of old arguments where she was probably in the right in the first place, you need to step it up a bit. » 10/21/14 3:43pm Tuesday 3:43pm

I'm not sure how this ended up on my sidebar, but since it's there, here's my not-Jalopnik-reader opinion: My dad let me drive his roughly 5-year-old Corvette, and it...wasn't any thing special? The only two other sports cars I've driven were an elderly MGB and Lotus Elise, and they were both much more fun. Though I… » 10/20/14 10:03pm Monday 10:03pm

I generally associate having 20 pictures with people who are under 30 rather than over 40, but I don't think it's a strong enough signal to not write to someone if everything else seems in order. It's possible she's an amateur photographer or something. If there are other warning signs, it might be a tipping point. » 10/20/14 9:43pm Monday 9:43pm

I like the "identity" phrasing. I think it works better than saying, "If you're not something, you can't wear it," because that construction brings out all the people who have been told they're a little bit Native American, way back. » 10/20/14 8:57pm Monday 8:57pm

Holy shit. Your coworker is putting you in a position to publicly announce whether you'd do something as controversial as having an abortion? Aside from the obvious nosiness and inappropriateness, that's obnoxiously manipulative, given that some people can react in extreme or violent ways to discussion of abortion. » 10/20/14 8:49pm Monday 8:49pm

When I cruise M4W, I see this exactly same ad posted all the time. The only difference is that the dude who expects sex with an attractive woman in exchange for a luxury vacation doesn't also expect the woman in question to chip in for expenses. You're doing it wrong, dude, and the person who actually wins that… » 10/20/14 5:39pm Monday 5:39pm

Yeah, I find that odd. The minister who will only marry members of her own congregation? I get that. The person who got an online license who will only marry close friends? I really get that. If you're marrying people in Las Vegas, I'm not buying the argument that you're picky about whose marriage you officiate. » 10/20/14 1:18am Monday 1:18am
