My husband and I and our 9 year old son are in Orlando starting today (Monday) until Friday afternoon. Our main goal was to see the Harry Potter World at Universal but after we visited today, we think we might get bored with that after another day or two. (We have a 3 day pass and hope to milk it for the whole three days but I'm not sure we'll make it past tomorrow)

We are at a hotel about 20 minutes walking distance from Universal, and we don't have a rental car so we are looking for other things to do that won't cost and arm and a leg to get to by cab. We looked up doing Disney for a day and it's just too expensive to be worth it.

Ideas? (looking for food recommendations near Universal, also--we hit Margaritaville for dinner, and IHOP for lunch because we couldn't find the place we were looking for). Thanks!

adaptations [Jun. 20th, 2016|04:47 pm]
The Question Club

arekearu
What do you think about film adaptations from books? I'm sure lots of people who are diehard fans have a knee jerk reaction to adaptations as abominations. I try to be open-minded, and tell myself that the adaptation is a separate, but related entity to be judged not based on its faithfulness to the original material, but on its own merit. It's not such an easy thing...sometimes an atrocity is an atrocity. Take the Avatar: The Last Airbender movie. Haha.

Do you have a favorite adaptation, or one that should be doused in kerosene, set afire and pitched into the deepest darkest pit of radioactive sludge that is readily accessible?

This post is inspired by the new teaser image released for the filming of The Dark Tower.

Is LJ in Danger? [Jun. 20th, 2016|06:00 am]
The Question Club

smile_n_cuddle
Once upon a time I was on LJ every single day. I wish this still were the case, but my friends have all moved to Facebook, so I post weekly on my LJ now, and mostly just for myself since I don't really have any active friends. But... just touching base. LJs not going anywhere or planning to shut down the site, right? :)

No need to print out my 14 years of journal entries?

Also, any active peeps wanna be friends? Mid-30s, happily 'living apart together' with my boyfriend of 8 years, work from home, have three cute parrots, enjoy urban homesteading and growing my own food in the city!

cake [Jun. 17th, 2016|10:16 pm]
The Question Club

eowyn
In almost every American film I've seen involving a wedding, there's a scene where people go to cake tastings to choose the right wedding cake. I'm in Australia and I've never known anyone to do this as part of their wedding plans.

Is this a thing that only happens in the films, or in America, or ...?

Oh, and what's your favourite cake?

Do you have/have you ever had a personalized license plate? What does it read? What does it mean?
I decided to personalize my license plate when I bought my new car in February. It says "LUV 4 CFD." It means love for Columbus Fire Dept - because I am so very proud to be a part of it! (My partner is a union member, but it feels very personal, since our families sacrifice a lot as a whole!)

What, if anything, has been stressing you out lately?
2 weeks ago we had a massive amount of water back-up in our main living room of our apartment, and since then, our apartment had been partially packed up. We weren't buying groceries in anticipation of moving so we've been eating like shit (ordering in) and nobody is feeling well lately. In fact, just the past couple of days, both my fiance and toddler have become sick with a sore throat/cough. On top of it, I found out something very disturbing and hurtful about my dad last weekend. It affects me because we used to be so close. Although I'm not comfortable sharing specifics, it has tarnished our relationship, and I don't think I'll ever be able to look at him the same way again. It's really sad for me, and it's been difficult. I feel much better than I did last week, though. With all the stressors of moving, it's just hard not to feel like "everything" is going wrong! However, I am super excited to go to a wedding on Saturday and just RELAX.

color my world [Jun. 15th, 2016|08:48 pm]

piperki
A fellow I know recently appeared in public wearing a navy blue t-shirt and green camouflage tumor cargo shorts. The combination struck me as not ideal, and I advised him to reconsider this ensemble for future outings. He insisted that "navy is a neutral, like black."

What do you think, TQC? Is navy a neutral?

Suggestions for audio short stories [Jun. 14th, 2016|12:18 am]
The Question Club

cleodhna
Hello TQC! Looking for some suggestions; hoping for your kind input.

We will soon be undertaking a long car journey and need some good stuff to listen to. We like to have audiobooks. I have a couple of longer books, but I'm looking for some short stories to fill gaps where we're not going to want to stop in the middle of a chapter.

Preferred genres would be horror (more gothic than blood and guts), fantasy, science fiction, science fantasy, drama (but no chick lit), that sort of thing. We'd prefer it to be intellectually satisfying (or not trying to be but failing) and have a definite preference for dark stuff. As an indicator, we love Neil Gaiman. The main caveat is I must be able to get it: iTunes, audible or audio CD available in the UK, or free download.

Any suggestions? Warnings? Recipes for oatmeal cookies? Thank you!

TQC, how usual is it for a grown man to have pee (more than an errant drop or two) land outside the toilet bowl, specifically on the floor?
