Dolls [Oct. 24th, 2014|11:16 am]

Does anyone know anything about old dolls or the best way to go about trying to identify old dolls?

I found these two in a box of my grandmother's old stuff. I can't find any markings on them so I'm not even sure what to google aside from "bisque dolls". I'd like to narrow it down.

PicturesCollapse )

Completely different topic:
I have an amazon wishlist and on September 21st it showed that someone(s) had purchased 3 of the's now almost 5 weeks later and I haven't received anything and my wishlist still shows that they were purchased on the 21st.

Am I just impatient and they'll eventually show up?
Did they buy and then cancel the order?

Has someone ever bought something off your wishlist? How long did you have to wait for it to show up?

Never mind. I just talked with someone from amazon and it looks like they were "purchased elsewhere" so I won't be seeing them lol. Oh well. Thanks sushidog for giving me the idea that it might be that. Looks like you were right!

Your SO tries to go through your phone or computer while you're not around. He/she then gets angry with you because you use a password, and accuses of you not trusting him/her. How would you handle this situation?

Old family photos. [Oct. 24th, 2014|08:41 am]

After storing them for years, I've finally started going through my deceased parent's photos. There are numerous albums, but even more loose photos. Some are antiques - family members from generations back, some are baby pictures from our childhood, etc. There are just so many. I plan on scanning the best ones and putting them on CD for myself and my brothers. But my question is what do I do with all the photos? I feel weird throwing them away. I guess they could just live forever in my garage, but since I will have them on CD it seems kinda silly to keep the actual photos. I don't know what to do with them. Would it be awful of me to throw them away after scanning them? Suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Accents [Oct. 23rd, 2014|04:45 pm]

Inspired by this article about Kathy Bates' accent on AHS.

Do you have a regional accent?

Can you detect them in others?

Is your accent the same as the place in which you live?

Do you have parents or relatives with a regional accent different from yours?

*I live in Baltimore and got a kick out of her version of the Dundalk/Essex/Middle River working class accent.

10/23/1984(question-are these words any good?) [Oct. 23rd, 2014|11:11 am]

I think I may have been born today.
Long ago...In a place with no telescreen.
My mother says they eventually found him.
That nameless person she found in the only place of respite.
At least known to them.
It was a meeting place.
Where people went to hide
If only a short time.
Like I said they found him.
She saw it on the daily report
A regional segment where they go over the captured dissidents who dared to hide.
Luckily my mother was never found.
Otherwise I wouldn't have been born.
I'm also writing this in a secret journal.
For the lower class it's forbidden.
I guess I inherited it through the love of two strangers.
She says they said nothing
Just held each other close
Eyes closed
Senses electrified
Both knowing they were hiding from the same thing
Big brother
The father and the mother
And so now I go to that same place.
Right now they looking for me.
It was no longer a safe place.
I was hoping for a repeat of history
Im sure they will find me soon.
Im writing this as I hide
These may be the last words I can put pen to paper
If I survive i'll start another diary.

Dream Interpretation [Oct. 23rd, 2014|09:37 am]

Have you ever had that common dream of your teeth falling out?

Would you be willing to share what was going on in your life around that time?

I've had one for the first time two nights ago and am trying to place its meaning. (Other than it's close to my birthday and I'm getting old - 39!) My dream also involved Alien DNA and neuro-virus aggressive dog amongst other things.

Long dream recap behind cut...Collapse )

I got a dip dye kit from Bleach London, it says to apply it to unwashed hair.

I need to wash my hair to remove some leftover temporary dye. How long should I leave between washing and applying the bleach kit?

Yesterday I was in my bedroom and I heard a rumbling noise coming from beside my bed, took me a moment to realise that it was my royal python farting. (Apparently royals (aka balls) are notorious farters but this is the first time I've heard her fart in 6 years of having her)

What funny unexpected things have your pets done recently?

Serendipity [Oct. 23rd, 2014|03:50 pm]

On this morning's treadmill run, 6.66km ticked over while Iron Maiden's 'Number of the Beast' was playing on my iPod shuffle. I've been waiting so long for this to happen!

What was your most recent happy coincidence?

Oh Yeah, I Forgot I Had That [Oct. 22nd, 2014|04:16 pm]

Can you think of anything so mundane that if bad things started happening to you shortly after it came into your possession, you'd never even suspect it was cursed? (Its for fiction, so actual belief in cursed objects is irrelevant.)

How would you respond if somebody said something racist to you at work? Assume that it's not about you or any group to which you belong. In my situation, it was something along the lines of, "99% of black people are poor, so fried chicken is considered a delicacy for them."

Does your response change based on whether this person holds a lot of influence in your place of employment?

When was the last time a work of fiction got you choked up or emotional and lingered for at least a day? What was it? Share ... Talk amongst yourselves.

Surgery [Oct. 21st, 2014|09:40 pm]

Have you or anyone you know had renal cell carcinoma? My son-in-law is having surgery tomorrow for a mass on his kidney and we don't know what to expect. It was found by accident after he had kidney stones and went for his follow up. He might lose the kidney once the surgeon sees it but if the growth is operable, he will still have half a kidney. They are using the cyber-knife if that makes any difference.

Good thoughts sent his way would be greatly appreciated.

the sound of running water [Oct. 21st, 2014|07:07 pm]

ETA Yes, typo, MORE than a minute, not less than.
Poll #1986342 hygiene first

When you use a public washroom, after you have finished doing your thing, how much time do you spend washing your hands?

<1 minute
30-60 seconds
20-30 seconds
10 seconds
I just use hand sanitizer
Other (explain in comments)

Outside of the washroom situation, just in life, what is your handwashing philosophy?

People worry too much about it.
People don't wash enough to suit me.
Hand sanitizer kills everything so who cares.
I wash 10x as much to make up for everyone else.
DGAF about handwashing, mine or anyone else's.

Bonus question--automatic flushing public toilets: your opinion?

I can't help myself. [Oct. 22nd, 2014|09:55 am]

Do you have a bad habit you would really like to break, but for some reason all your logic fails you and you just can't get it together?

Brought to you by the fact that night after night I tell myself I am going to get to bed at a decent hour, but no...

What would you do with a really really big sturdy cardboard box, TQC?
I have one which used to contain a sofa, so when I say big, I mean really big; quite big enough for a large tiger, or two moderate and fairly friendly tigers, to get comfy in (if only I had a tiger or two). It seems kind of wasteful to just chuck it out, so suggestions please!

GoFundMe... [Oct. 21st, 2014|11:11 am]

Is a GoFundMe account for a wedding a big no-no to you?

Would you encourage someone not to do that if they threw out the idea to you that they wanted to do it?

For those not interested: What are your plans for Halloween?

Flying roaches be like, 'where is your god now?' [Oct. 21st, 2014|11:06 am]

#1 Is a person a "hero" for stopping another person from committing suicide? What if that person genuinely did not want to be saved?

#2 Is it shallow to dump someone for being shallow? Inspired by a recent Dear Abby post lol.

#3 What flightless creature do you hope never gains the ability to fly?
