Since I'm feeling rather old...

What's your favorite childhood memory?

I have one of me waking up in my crib (!!!), and having my mother, who is wearing a towel on her head, turn to me and start singing a song that my family made up long ago:

I didn't know she was a-wakin' bacon,
I didn't know she was awaaaaaaaaake!!!


It's catchy, isn't it? ;)

And then I bounced happily while holding the edge of the crib. Hooray basic motor skills!

I'd love to hear yours!

Anyone fairly fluent in German? Could anyone tell me what "blaubeermund" means? The reason I ask is because there's a (extremely awesome) German group I listen to, E Nomine, that has a song titled "Der Blaubeermund". I love the song but cannot for the life of me figure out what the title means. Help?

i was on a road trip with my friend today, and I noticed that along the highway there will be multiple gas stations all near each other. But one gas station will be say $1.89/gallon and the one right next to it will be like $1.94/gallon....so what Im asking is how does the more expensive one stay in business, and also, who is stupid enough to pay the extra 5 cents/gallon when there is cheaper gas no more than 15 seconds away? (not meant to offend anyone who may have done that before..)

mosquitos

We just moved to a new house and the place is swarming with mosquitos!  I know the tips on how to prevent them, but how can I get rid of the ones that are already there?  Google informed my of a machine that can help, but it is expensive.  Any ideas?

I'm allergic to SOMETHING!!

Okay, I'm allergic to SOMETHING in my house. It's like every time I come into my own home I get a head cold... but after a few minutes of being outside I'm normal again. It's not dust...because I was just in a very dusty dorm for a few months and I was fine. No pets or anything like that. It can't be the laundry or something because I'm still wearing my clothes when I go outside (usually, LOL). What could it be?!

cricket cricket

I have seen a few years ago, a tongue-in-cheek way to explain the "gentleman's" sport of cricket. It had 20 rules of cricket (the exact number of rules I don't remember, 20 is a guess). It's audience being American, made references to baseball/softball. But it was hilarious to read. Anyone know where I can find the text? I have looked but I can't seem to find it!

Also, while we are trying to figure out t-shirts, I saw this one that didn't make any sense...anyone can help? It had a 'warning' sign, underneath it the text read: "Women when wet". ummm...huh?

Itchy

When things heal... they sometimes itch. Well, I have this cut on the bottom of my foot that's itching like crazy. I'm afraid to scratch because it'll re-open the wound. Any suggestions to make the itching go away?

How legit are these sites?

I have a question; I stumbled unto an mp3 site called mp3 advanced. Click here to view the site. I wanted to know if anyone has used it before. If so how legit was the site and would you use it?

Likewise, I was looking through my emails on yahoo and the little ad on the side was a site to bestselling book where every book cost $9.95. The site is called zooba and I wanted to know if anyone was familar with it?

Thank you in advance.

Are there any laws regarding what a previous employer is allowed to say when another employer calls them about an employee who used to work for the previous employer?

Stargate question

In the Stargate tv and movie universe, what happens if you try to go through a stargate the wrong way? I don't recall seeing that ever happen. I know you can't travel succesfully the wrong way, but I don't know what happens if you try.

Has anyone ever used 1-800-contacts? The contacts that i currently used aren't a name brand. So i would have to get a different brand. Should I just go to my eye doctor instead?
