Etc: Graffiti: Woman-thing
  • sunk

Here a book, there a book....

Can anyone suggest a good book? Something along the lines of horror, sci-fi, or psycho-murder mystery.

(Nothing by Anne Rice or Clive Barker, please: Rice is boring {to me!}, and I've read most of Barker.)

This has been bugging me for ages:

I remember reading something--a short story, I think; Perhaps part of an anthology. The story was essentially a series of dated letters, from a girl to... someone; I can't remember to whom the letters were written. Anyway, in it, the girl's father meets a woman, and I seem to remember the girl not liking the woman. What I remember best is that near the end, the father somehow cuts a paw from a cat, and later, they find the woman who'd been basically dating the father, dead, with her hand missing.

Does anyone know the author? The book title? I'd settle for the story title! It isn't as if it was the best story ever (I believe I read it in elementary school.), but not being able to remember is driving me batty.

(Two questions in a row. Yay me.)

I am not a worrying type of person--I think it's fairly useless--yet today I find myself worried literally to tears over stuff I have no control over at the moment, and I just need something to take my mind off of it. Can anyone give me anything cheerful? I'm not picky at the moment.

I don't like the color purple. Really, really don't like it. I don't think it looks good on any skin tone, surface, or shape. It gives me a headache and I wish it would die. Concur or disagree?

Funny thing is, I don't even know why. So petulant and irrational.

Do you ever feel this way about a COLOR?

I haven't been able to give blood for a few years now because I have low hemoglobin.  But I don't really understand what causes that (unless it's the fact that I'm anemic, which I've always been yet I used to be able to give blood so I guess the hemoglobin levels dropped).

So is there anything I can do besides medication to raise my hemoglobin levels?  I'd love to be able to give blood again. 

Okay, we need an argument settled.

a) hair gathered with a rubber band/scrunchie/what have you, but not braided.
b) all the hair of gatherable length gathered into one "tail", wether braided or not

2. Pigtail=
a) hair gathered with a rubber band/scrunchie/what have you, and braided
b) answer b above, but more than one of them

Why does the U2 song "Vertigo" (the one in the annoying iPod commercial) start with "uno, does, tres, catorce" (one, two, three, fourteen)?

washing machines

If you have a washing machine at home, do you have a top or front loader? Do you think one type is better than the other?

I'm thinking of getting a new one but I'm sad about it.
I got a new queen bed and my comforter doesn't fit in my washer. I think my best option is getting a bigger washer. Would you do the same in my situation? Or would you keep driving out to a laundromat to wash them?
