commented on A Few More Thoughts on That Business-Backed Poll and the $15 Movement
I'm pretty sure I was called for this survey. There was also a Proposal B and a Proposal C. One phased in the increase over a period of a few years, and I think the other included a tip credit.
They also asked about a few specific options such as exempting small & non-profit businesses and the tip credit thing, and whether that would make me more or less likely to support a proposal.

commented on Where Should I Buy a New Mattress?
I have a memoryfoam mattress from costco, the 'novaform' brand I think. I paid something like $800 for it 5 years ago. I tested it out briefly at the costco home store (is that still around?) and they offer deals for them in their little coupon books all the time. It's been a great mattress- no complaints at all. Delivery is really easy for memoryfoam mattresses too-- they just fedex it to you in a big box and it expands into its normal shape over the course of a few hours.
