Oh, good, matching skirt and shirt combos. Note to young people: this is what your elders wore. When we were 12. http://t.co/dYhw1w4XOs— Megan McArdle (@asymmetricinfo) October 8, 2015
Most of her posts look like they were dashed off right before quitting time. And not many people would tell their audience about how much research they are doing unless they are doing none. Especially when they don't use any research in the article. Or when most of their "facts" are wrong, as they were in her famous kitchen post; after that post she tweeted that she had spent all day researching.
Yesterday she did a one-hour Q&A for Facebook, starting late and ending early. That was it for the day.
Perhaps she is busy working on something else besides her blog, maybe a long-form article, or is travelling for business. And one hour ago was 10:30 in her time zone. She's a journalist, her hours are fluid, she might work 15 hour days for all we know, although we also know she doesn't blog on weekends or holidays, with extremely rare exceptions. Yeah. That has to be it. That must be why she's shopping for new clothes at 10:30 on a weekday. She doesn't punch a clock, after all. And it's not like you can order clothes over the internet at any time you want.
Also, too: Banana Republic? Is that where she bought this tragic dress?
Now, you might think that discussing McArdle's work habits is silly. But we all know that the poor are poor because they don't apply themselves. They don't work hard at school and save their money and think ahead. I'm only thinking of McArdle's happiness. It's for her own good.
ADDED: Hahahaha! From the comments on her second Facebook post:
