OK, so there is an article on CNN.com entitled "Sex Worker: I sleep with 5 men a day just to eat," and my first thought was, you must not be very good.
Or she eats a LOT. And, how many men does she sleep with to pay rent? Utilities? Pocket money?

Comcast internet:$30/month for six months, then $45for six months, then $62. Ugh. I'll be calling to get my $45 rate maintained or I'll cancel after a year, and switch to century link, and back and forth.

Piano moving: I'm moving 5.5 miles. It's costing me $240 to move my piano. Ouch.

I had some cocktails last night and ended up ordering a kitchen aid mixer online. I cancelled the order this morning. ;)(I still need a new mixer, but I'll wait until the moving dust settles.)

also last night, I almost agreed to adopt my neighbor's kitten. Brought her up here and put her int he sapre room for a while. When I let Rose and Mia see her, they FREAKED. I am not up for the slow process of integrating another cat into this household.

WTF was I thinking? Dumb.

I don't understand that, either. It's just. A house. Grab your pictures, your computer, your pets, and GTFO.
Unless you are worried that not everyone else will leave and your place will get robbed, or you have something like my mom has, a tinge of agoraphobia and she just won't go places, or you think the weathermen are exaggerating and you can ride it out, or you are like the lower 9th ward in NO and don't know how to leave

You are right- moving is not the time to take a kitten. Too much energy is those little terrors; too much stress for your big cats

I think I tipped 6 years ago when I moved my piano from my house to here. Now it's costing me even more,$240, and it's only going 5.5 miles. Do I have to tip? It's a cash-only business.

Yes. The owner gets the cash but the workers give the sweat. Tip. You'll sleep better

My younger daughter is in the middle of the storm. She can still get texts in and out. Phone service is not good.

Jess is worse off I know, but it is still scary

Okay, but I'm only tipping $20 to each guy. $280 is a lot of money. This piano wouldn't even sell for that much.

None of those are worth dying or causing someone else to die or be in harm's way. Excuses.

I agree with this. What's a few more dollars? You still tip your server if you know it was the kitchen or the manager who screwed up.

I'm pretty sure the owner will be one of the movers.

That's different, probably, then... but I'd still tip just for my own piece of mind. You can't put a price on sentimentality, right? Plus I'm generally a big tipper. But many people would say you don't tip the owner, so do whatever you're comfortable with.

I'd feel like a jerk tipping one guy and not the other.

Plus... they're coming over mid to late Saturday afternoon after they're done with another move in a suburb (they move about 2-3 pianos a year, but they're also a regular moving company). I should tip out of gratitude that i didn't have to take time off from work like I did the last time.
