@1:Disdain for consumerism also ignores how much the economy is dependent on it. If people didn't buoy up retailers by buying tons of useless crap during the holidays, I imagine a lot of companies would start laying people off, assuming they could even stay in business.

I don't understand why you would even want to be friends with the sort of people who instagram their yuppiefare; are you hoping they'll help you land a better job, or something?
commented on SL Letter of the Day: There Are Worse Things He Could Do
When I get together with my siblings, one of the things that eventually comes up is how distant and even cold our parents were. I think I prefer that to this undoubtedly kind and well-intentioned woman's involvement with her son's emotional and sexual life. As an adult, I can understand her concern, but as a teenager I would have found it invasive and even a bit creepy.
