Hey, everybody!

I've got an 8-hour flight coming up. What should I load my phone up with so I can my mind off my anxiety about flying? Music, books, movies, documentaries, interesting talks... I'm open to suggestions!

Thanks :)

You know you are getting old when... [Sep. 26th, 2017|06:14 pm]

I get to wear bifocals, am starting to grow a cataract, and have mildly squiggly eye blood vessels from blood pressure changes.

What is the most recent change to remind you that you are aging (or degenerating in either direction, as the case may be)?

Plant advice [Sep. 22nd, 2017|11:53 pm]
The Question Club

kirstennnnnn

I used to call myself a black thumb, but I don't think I'm quite that bad anymore.  However,  there's this gardenia...  It was very healthy looking in the pot in the store.  It started being droopy when I had it for a few days, so I figured I needed to plant it so its roots could spread out.  I picked a place near the fence line close to a tree to give it partial shade.  It started declining even beyond what I would expect from shock at being transplanted.  I thought maybe the tree was soaking up too much of the moisture in the ground around it, so I transplanted the gardenia again.  It isn't in shade, but because it is in a kind of grassy alley between two carports, it shouldn't be exposed to the full potency of the sun more than about an hour a day.  Now, it is like in a living dead state.  It looks wilty, but the leaves are still green and the stems are still pliant.  The only time I have seen it really perk up was during the hurricane!  I water it almost every day.  It looks even worse if I don't.  It could be heat, I guess, but my grandmother had a very healthy gardenia on this property while she was living.  (That's what made me think to splurge on the purchase.)  Anyway, long story shory, any suggestions for making this plant happy other than finding it a new owner?

I fell on Tuesday and hurt my lower back pretty severely. I saw a doctor and was instructed to take over the counter since I'm already on antibiotics for an infection I've been trying to fight off for nearly 3 weeks. Suffice to say. I'm having a bad time. Unfortunately, I don't have any sick time left, so I'm trying to cope and doing it badly. So, my question is have you had a bad fall, had to suck it up to go into work and how did you cope?

What word would you call it...sexism? [Sep. 20th, 2017|02:12 pm]
The Question Club

kirstennnnnn

Why does every male that asks about it assume the book I am reading is a romance, or "luuuv book" as the last one said with a bit of a leer in the voice?  Then, when I say, "No, it is actually literature (or a classic or whatever I am actually reading that is highly unlikely to be romance as I really dislike the genre)", they look at me like I have grown an extra head and they are disappointed.  Are we still so stunted?  Will it ever change?  I am reading a collection of novellas by Henry James, btw, (among many others) and while there are elements of romance in some of his stories, that is generally not his primary theme...more class and social structure and, ironically, sometimes the treatment of women within those social constrictions.

Someone gave me this print a couple years ago and I cannot find this artist. I assumed she got it off Etsy and searched there but no luck. There are initials of A.H. In the bottom corner. Any idea? Maybe you guys are better at google than I am...

I'm celebrating my 40th birthday pretty soon!

If you have hit this milestone, how did you celebrate? Mostly asking because I don't have plans and no one has planned anything big for me.

I may have asked this already, but is there a song, a show, or a film you can't watch again, because it's too sad or emotionally taxing?

I had a surprising reaction to the "30 Rock" episode with Peter Dinkledge -- I couldn't watch it again, it was too emotionally enervating for me.

Payment plan cost difference [Sep. 12th, 2017|10:28 pm]
The Question Club

Is it normal for there to be a high difference between paying for something outright and paying in installments?

I bought a service that was advertised as £229 but choose the option to pay in installments, only after paying was it shown that the option to pay in installments was £272

Do you have an investment app on your phone? Which one? Does it work or is it a scam? Would you consider using one?

My SO of over two years needed my full name and date of birth for some paperwork. He texted me to ask for these details. I replied that I was pretty sure he knew already, and he said he didn't remember and then he guessed the year wrong (made me older than I am).

Is this unusual?

Do you know your SO's full name and date of birth?

Cat Repellant [Sep. 11th, 2017|02:32 pm]
The Question Club

jillybeans
We got kittens a few weeks ago, and we've kept them locked in half the house because they, of course, like to scratch at some of our furniture. I got the double sided sticky tape for the chairs, but to no avail; they ripped it off within seconds, completely unbothered by its sticky surface. They have plenty of scratching posts, including a four foot tall climbing cat tree scratcher and several cardboard scratchers that they love, so "appropriate scratching posts" is not an issue.

I'm now looking for a new solution. I've purchased the little nail caps, but right now the kittens are too small for them. In the meantime, I've been doing research about repelling sprays, and I've come across several DIY versions that include lemon essential oil and eucalyptus, but another article I found said that essential oils, especially eucalyptus, is toxic to cats. I want to repel them, not poison them!

Any suggestions what I can do to keep them away from my antique chairs and brand new sofa while I wait for them to grow into their nail caps? Has anyone used the lemon oil DIY spray before with success (and no harm) or something else? I want them to be able to roam the house, but I just don't trust them with my furniture yet!

EDIT: I tried a different DIY recipe to keep them off the no-no places: rosemary, lemon juice, and white vinegar. It did....absolutely nothing lol. In fact, one of my babies liked the way it tasted and licked at it. On the plus side, the nail caps FIT now, and they're awesome. My kittens don't bother with them at all, and they tolerate the placement of the caps far better than they tolerate me cutting their nails (which I still totally do, btw, even though they don't love it). For now, my couches are mostly safe. Thanks to everyone for your suggestions!

Have any of you ever been whale watching? (I'm asking specifically about in California, but elsewhere works too.) What should I expect if I went? Did you actually see any whales, or was it a disappointment?

I have a problem with acquiring pretty blank books / notebooks and then leaving them empty forever, afraid that nothing I put in them will match the quality of content implied by the cover design. I always want them to have a cohesive Theme, but I hate the idea of spoiling the pristine canvas, especially if it isn't designed to have easily-removable pages, if I start on a topic and then change my mind.

I already use one as journal (albeit infrequently), and I'm not really big on drawing. What else would you suggest I do with them, and/or what have you used them for?

Hi group, we watched Close Encounters of the Third Kind last night on the big screen. It was amazing! Directors and actors often have their trademarks and while I could find quite a few websites that listed Stephen Spielberg's trademarks, I couldn't find this one on them. Am I along in noticing the way people are often running in his movies? When a scene is first introduced, it seems like there's always someone running from left to right on a busy errand and sometimes a small group running in the opposite direction. I wish I could explain this better :/ It was really apparently in CE3K because of all the large groups of people.

Pastry Recommendations [Sep. 3rd, 2017|06:25 pm]
The Question Club

luna_shovegood
We bought rolls of shortcrust and puff pastry and used a tiny bit of each. I may end up freezing (some of) it but I'd prefer to use it up if possible.

My wife's on a diet and can only eat a little bit, so I'm going to be using it for my lunches.

What are your favourite pastry recipes? I don't have any dietry restrictions, but I really don't like beans, cabbage or parsnip.

Three women walk out of a bar [Sep. 1st, 2017|11:13 pm]
The Question Club

My SO and i were observing three rowdy middle aged women in a sports bar/ restaurant.
I walked out to get a jacket from my car.
As i was coming back in they were walking out.
They shamelessly hit on me and one even grabbed my butt.
How should i feel? Was i sexually assaulted? Should my SO be upset with me?
( To be fair I WAS the best looking dude in the room)
