Ladies, stop looking at this site and get yourself to Applebees for some appletinis.
You may have thought that an active online life watching and teaching tech tutorials for Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest was rewarding, but Applebees would be much happier if you just dropped the smarty-pants act and met up with your girlfriends for cocktails and jalepeno poppers.
