5 quick questions

Just wondering…

  1. Is there an app that I can use to listen to an article/blog post online? Mostly, I am asking because I don’t have time to read Lainey’s Gossip every day, but I could happily listen to it while I work.
  2. How do you fix a door? Our front door sticks, it’s nearly impossible to open, and everyone thinks it’s locked. I curse it every single day… is there an easy fix? Do I need to call someone? Who?
  3. Who are the Vanderpumps and do I need to care?
  4. Google Calendars vs. iCal? I use iCal, which seems fine but I am having a bit of FOMO
  5. Are you okay with me renaming my forty before forty list to fifty before fifty and adding ten more items? If so, what ten things should I add?
