Are You Ready for a New “Little Women”?

This is a group of readers.  I think we all know this.  And, as much as we love our gents around here (I’m looking at you FRQ and Hotspur, you fine gentlemen!) this blog has quite a few ladies that enjoy their lady books.  So what’s the most lady-ish book out there?  Why Little Women, of course!  Now you’ve probably seen a movie version of the book sometime in your life:

Park Elsewhere

There’s an eternal battle on the roads between cars and bicycles.  The balance is usually tipped towards automobiles, but once cyclist has had enough.

So, How Was Your Day?

It’s too hot to be alive right now, but otherwise, my day has been good! I’m feeling better and have most of my hearing back, and have been able to complete basic tasks like cleaning and buying food, so I’m feeling like a real person again. Otherwise, not much is going on, which is just fine with me.

What’s In The Box?

I recently went through a round of spring summer cleaning, and realized that my wardrobe could use an update.  The problem, at least for me, is that shopping for clothes can be a giant pain in the ass.  Purchasing individual pieces is fine, but when I need to put together entire outfits, I hide in a cave and resign myself to being the man John Oliver has accurately described.  However, a slew of podcast advertising has led me to a site called Five Four Club, a subscription service that has a personal fashion consultant selects a series of items for members to wear every month for a flat fee.  It’s an intriguing idea that appeals to the lazy sack of monkey turds in me, but there are some potential drawbacks.  What if I don’t like the pieces they send?  What if it doesn’t fit?  What if my neighbor ends up getting the same items, and we end up having to duel for the right to wear it?

There are a number of similar services, not only for fashion, but for food, makeup, sunglasses, razors, fitness, and nerd garbage you totally don’t need but will hoard anyway.  Does anyone here subscribe to any of these?  I’d love some thoughts about the fashion ones, but any experience with the boxes would be interesting to read about, as well.
