Are there any kinds of kissing games that can be played in which one party is blindfolded? The only ones I'm familiar with are spin the bottle, seven minutes in heaven, and kiss tag. And I ask because, well, I'm doing prelimenary research for NaNoWriMo, and I want one of my characters to kiss someone--but he won't know that she kissed him. And I'm one of those stunted people who's never been kissed and didn't go to many parties, so...
What are your thoughts on Constitution Day (Sept. 17), and Congress passing a law back in May 2005 saying that all federal-funded schools (i.e., public schools) are "required to hold an educational program pertaining to the United States Constitution on Sept. 17 of each year." (September 17th being the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution.) ?
Is this constitutional? Why or why not? Do you care? Did your school do anything for Constitution Day?
EDIT: I posted a couple questions on my journal to perhaps get the ball rolling.
1. I'm moving in two weeks. I really really need some books for school, that aren't available in-store anywhere so I have to order them online. Chapters-Indigo says that the books will ship in 24 hours. I've gotten books in less than a week from them before. Should I order them, or wait until after the move? Keep in mind that I don't have any crossover time between the addresses.
2. Is Ritalin available as a prescription to adults from regular doctors (that is, from any doctor you see rather than specifically a psychiatrist or psychologist)? I'm in Ontario, Canada, if it may matter.
3. How many languages can you count to ten in? I can do twelve (English, Latvian, Lithuanian, Estonian, Finnish, Russian, German, Spanish, Italian, French, Basque and Kyrgyz, if anyone's curious, I'm currently reviving my interest in it, and working on learning at least two a day. I used to be able to do eighteen).
Okay, I've just got one question... What the HELL is with all the various things biting syringes and eyes being all red and glowey?! Months ago I saw it in one icon, but now it seems like every other icon in this community has it, even the Bacos. Someone please explain the reference.
1. Were the original names in the olden-times written bible actually Adam and Eve? They just seem like such plain, white people names that it sounds off to think that they were written that way by people in the middle east a bagillion years ago. Answered! Thanks. --(for the record, I know nothing of religion in any way, shape or form; which brings me to my next question:)
2. Can anyone recommend books that would give me a rundown of western (Well, like Christiantiy and Catholicism-type religon; maybe even Morman or Lutheran or... whatever other semi-related religions one could cram into a book) religon from a neutral how-they-evoled standpoint? I'm not talking books written explaining the stories or carrying on the stories specifically to bring people into believing in that religion. I want more scholarly books that will talk about, say, how Jesus came to be called Jesus as opposed to ... whatever complicated name he originally had. I'm looking for books written by a neutral party that doesn't necessarily believe the lore, but wants to explore how it came to be the way it is now.
3. If you've read Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers and you loved it like I did, can you recommend books similar to it? Even books related just in that they're about forensics; I read a Reader's Digest book called (I think) Bodies of Evidence and I've been fascinated by the subject ever since. I can't seem to find any books to read, however.
is there anything that surprises you every time it happens even though you know it? Every time there's a pheasant in the road, and it decides to fly off instead of running (or getting run over), I always say "oh wow those can FLY?"
Why is that whenever i'm at my parents' house, i wake up feeling really gross and vomity the first morning I'm there? only the first morning, not the second....
My birthday is in about three weeks. What on earth do I want? Mom wants to know. Relatively inexpensive (under $100).
me: I'm turning 20 I commute back and forth to college I'm a musician (piano) and I'm trying to learn guitar I'm having surgery in December and will be pretty much immobile for a month and a half afterwards (anything on the lines of "this makes life on crutches easier" is great)
If your name is Katrina, or you know someone named Katrina, are you at all affected by the hurricane with the same name as you/someone you know?
I knew a Katrina in grade school and every time I hear about the hurricane, I think of her and wonder if she feels anything at all, sharing a name with the hurricane that caused so much trouble. I mean, if the hurricane had my name, I'd be weirded out.
Sorry to post twice in a short time, it won't happen again. For a while. ;o)
When buying hair dye at a store, do you assume that your hair will be the color on the box, or do you go a shade darker? Lighter?
My hair is brownish, in this picture, I'm the female, and I want a deep red color. My buddy's helping me dye my own hair, but I'm wondering if I should buy the box that has the exact color on it, or adjust.
What do you think about makeup in the work place? More specifically, do you think it should be required of women? If a woman doesn't wear it, is it a violation of a dress-code policy? Do you think it should be legal to write in a dress code policy that makeup is required?
I used to work at dayspas where it WAS required and they would give you a "talking to" if you DIDN'T wear makeup. I understand this because it's the beauty industry and practice what you preach, blah blah. I often "broke the dress code" though by not wearing makeup - I don't like being OBLIGATED to wear it.
I have heard of other places requiring their workers to wear makeup, though, when they're NOT working in the beauty industry(or some other relevent field). I understand that you should look tidy and clean and brush your teeth, but requiring women to wear makeup seems a bit much to me. Thoughts?
I was thinking today...I have been dating my boyfriend for about a year and a half. He has not once bought me a "gift"; other than for christmas, my birthday, and on our one year annivesary. I have bought him hats, shoes, movies, and some other things. He will pay for dinner and movies and that such but so do I, we always take turns. Is this normal. It doesn't bother me and I do not expect things from him but does/did your boyfriend/girlfriend buy you things randomly?
I have to write an essay on a short story for English and it's narrated by a woman who's sleeping with a married man. She refers to his wedding ring several times in the story at such points as when they're having dinner at a restaurant, having sex, etc. In the having sex part she refers to it as, "The coldness of it brushing against her skin", and when he gets up to answer his cell phone he pleasures her with the hand that doesn't have the wedding ring on it and she takes note of that. I'm bad at figuring out what an object symbolizes in a story, so my question is what do you think the wedding ring stands for in her eyes?
Do you know of any cool websites to buy funky, weird/fun earrings, the kind sold at Claire's?
PS: My sister downloaded Limewire to my computer and is trying to download a movie, Life Less Ordinary. It's been several hours and the dumb thing is STILL "awaiting sources". Gah. Any advice? Is it always going to be this pathetically slow?
Ever feel like you're changing, but you don't really know just how, or understand why it's happening? And your friends and acquaintances don't seem to like it at all? How do you go about assessing what's going on, perhaps stopping?
