A railroad conductor working on a New York commuter train found about $100,000 worth of diamond rings on his train on Tuesday. Was it yours? I feel like it was mine, personally.


“It almost didn’t seem real, Jonathan Yellowday, the Long Island Rail Road conductor in question, said of discovering two jewelry portfolios containing three-dozen diamond rings aboard one of his cars, per NBC News. “I thought, this can’t be what it seems.”

Yellowday turned the goods over to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and the jeweler who lost them soon retrieved them—or at least a jeweler who claims to have lost them. Who’s to say they don’t belong to someone else? Like me, for example? The idea that it was not me who lost $100,000 of diamonds on the LIRR a few days ago... In the words of Valentina of Drag Race fame, it just doesn’t make sense with my fantasy.......

What’s your fantasy for the night? Drop your delusions below.

Freelance journalist (GQ, W, Esquire, elsewhere), here on weekends


How do you keep your place, clean? A little each day? Deep-cleaning on the weekends? How do you motivate yourself to clean? Does it just come naturally to you? Do things out of place upset you so deeply that you naturally clean as you go? Is there a site/method you prefer? What helps?

I’m so abstracted I don’t really notice the mess until I lift my head and there are clothes on the carpet; dishes in the sink; and every available surface is (temporarily) cluttered. And then I spend hours cleaning on the weekend when I could be decompressing.

I do love looking at minimalist sites on the Interwebs..... and dreaming.....

What is your method? I’ll be cleaning as I read these. ;)

All tips and bullet-points welcome.
