If you're just joining us, here's what you missed last week:

Love in the Workplace: is it a good thing?

Around the City:
How to apply for the New York City Marathon | What to do about maintenance emergencies in your apartment if your landlord won't heed the call | For that matter, what to do about the neglectful landlord | How to navigate Manhattan via slightly complicated mathematical formulas | Is it okay to play your trumpent in the subway? | Selling your wares on the streets.

And just good sense:
Tipping the pizza delivery guy | Getting rid of unwelcome house guests | Ticket scalping? | Keeping those New Year's resolutions | Medicine for the uninsured.
