Friday Links

It’s another short list, as I’ve been behind on the internet this week.

☆ The New York Times reports that landlords are employing private eyes to rid their rent-controlled apartments of, inter alia, tenants named O.B. Juan KNobi. I’m not kidding.

☆ Worried about where to stock up on gold lamé leggings when if American Apparel goes out of business? My friend directed me to this helpful Slate article.

This Onion article hits uncomfortably close to the truth.

At 4:32 p.m. Tuesday, every single resident of New York City decided to evacuate the famed metropolis, having realized it was nothing more than a massive, trash-ridden hellhole that slowly sucks the life out of every one of its inhabitants.

Of course, it’s not entirely accurate. Some of us realized that long before Tuesday. And we’re all still here.1

☆ This is old, but I spent a lot of time with cats in Chicago, and it made me think of this guide to How to Tell if Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You. My favorite part: “You may think this is a sign of affection, but your cat is actually checking your internal organs for weakness.”

1 Just kidding, New York. You know I love you.
