online games

I'm looking for two different websites that I used to play free little online games at.

The first one was a game that you played with other people. It was like magnetic poetry and you had to make a sentence using the words that they gave you, and when the time was up, everyone in the game would vote on their favourite. I thought it was on Popcap, but I cant find it.

The second website I'm looking for had a bunch of really pretty games. The one I'm specifically looking for had an egg, and you had to click on the egg to make it jump, and basically get it up as high as you could go. There were moving cups you had to get it into. This website also had a little "game" when you would build a flower using some different shapes and then you could send it to people.

If these sound familiar, please, please, please post the links.

am I being too sensitive by thinking that it's way out of line for my cousin to invite my mom (and only my mom) back east for christmas?

My mom of course turned down the invitation because she knows Christmas is a big deal and you spend it with your immediate family but aside from that I dont think she gets how absolutley inconsiderate it was of my cousin to do this...at least in my opinion anyways.

I feel like saying something to my cousin....do you think that would be a bad idea?

Your pal wants to watch a sports movie and you kinda hate sports movies because they all seem the same. Which sport is bound to have the most exciting movies to pick from?

Crap. Did you ever tell someone in an adding community that you were planning to add them and THEN go to their profile only to find out that there was some MAJOR irreconcilable-type difference that you knew was going to cause drama? *bangs head on floor*

When I was going out tonight, my car decided it didn't want to start.  And then, while out, I realized I lost my phone and it's either in my moms car, somewhere in my friends house, or I dropped it in Shaws.  Either way, I currently can't find it.  It's lost.  I'm sad.

Why does techonolgy hate me tonight, TQC?

What kind of perfume do you usually wear? How many bottles of perfume do you have? Which perfumes do you want to buy? What's the most you've ever spent on perfume?

I have at least 20 bottles of perfume. I like to switch scents depending on my mood. for the past few months my usual scent is J'Adore Dior. the most I've spent on perfume was around $70 or $80 (Issey Miyake). I'd really like to buy the Juicy Couture perfume, or Chance Chanel. I recently smelled Sarah Jessica Parker's Covet & it smells really good. I like light, clean floral scents.

another scenario!

you and your ex work in the same large store, though in different departments. you broke up about a year ago, and are on speaking terms, at least. your ex has recently been talking a LOT to a girl in a different department (eg, standing outside and talking for an hour after work every day, waiting for her after he's clocked out and she hasn't, trying to take breaks and lunches when she does, etc). you have known this girl since you were 6, and were once part of the same friends group in middle school.

how do you react?

eta: i'm not the 'you' in this scenario; i'm the girl in the other dept and i'm trying to figure out why this guy's ex is so upset about me talking to him all the time.

Questions about paying for gas.

My friend drives me to/from work every once in a while (he works at the same place as me). He's done it probably 4/5 times total (one way). Next time I see him I'm planning on giving him $20. Is this enough? We live 2/3 miles apart.

My other friend lives about a mile away. She gave me a ride home from a show at our high school. I gave her $3. She gave it back to me and said she could barely get a gallon with that. Maybe it's an insulting price but that's enough for a gallon and a gallon gets her 35 miles in her car. I'm broke. What should I have given to her?

A third friend invites me to come to lunch with her and a couple other people. If she invited us and we're all carpooling with her, should she expect gas money? (We're all going from the school to some place to eat back to the school, so there's not individual dropping people off or anything.)

eta: gas prices are about $3/gallon here.

How does a town acquire a major league team? I was thinking about this while watching the world series, but any sports team would do.
Does (for example, but again any sports team will do) the MLB associations just go an pick a town and decide they want a team there?
How do they choose? Economy? Weather? A large company in the town that could sponsor a stadium?
Do they go and meet with city planners? Do the city planner petition to have a team in their city?

I don't really know how to ask this question, but...

my grandmother is dying. today all of our immediate family is going to go visit her because it's supposedly just a matter of days. I've had one hell of a month without this being added onto it. there was a time when I was closer to her that I was to my actual mother. I feel numb about it right now, and I don't know how to act. my mother calls me up crying & dealing with it in her way. for some reason I panic inside & I just want to get away from that. I know that sounds selfish.. but that's not how I deal with things, and when she turns to me and cries about it I just want to run away. she tends to be very dramatic & talk very dramatically when she calls me. for example, she'll call & say all somber "take your shower. we need to go now. there's not much time" - which don't get me wrong - that's OK, that's her way of handling things. but it all just makes me want to stay the hell away from everyone. I guess it just freaks me out. I don't even know why.

so I guess my question is.. have any of you ever been through something similar? (I'm sure a lot of people have) and.. how did you deal with it? I'm curious, because it's interesting to me how me & my mother have totally opposite ways of dealing with heartbreak and pain.

edit: for the record, I AM going to visit her. I never said I wasn't. I just want to know if anyone can relate.

MLA - how many words per page?

I could post this on a more academic community but this will get more traffic, so:

My version of Word is kind of messed up and I can't really figure out how to format margins and such. It doesn't really matter because I print all my papers in one of the school's computer labs so that they end up formatted correctly. But just for my own reference, if I'm using MLA style how many words should I have per page, approximately? I've tried searching but I've found everything from 250 to 400 words.

If I'm writing a 20-page paper about how many words should I have total?

Post Halloween party cleaning question

I have a Swiffer Wet Jet, but no batteries and none of the cleaning pad things...but plenty of the cleaning solution.  Does it work as well if I just use the solution with a different mop, or should I stop being lazy and go to the store?  I know this sounds dumb but I don't know if the solution mixes with any other chemicals inside the mop or on the pads.


When I was visiting my parents a few days ago I was using their computer and found that my brother had left open an online conversation with my other brother. The whole conversation was about me and it said some of the worst things I could ever imagine anyone saying about me. It was wrong of me to read it, but my name stood out on the screen and I couldn't help myself. :(

I am not close to either of my brothers and most of what they were saying isn't even remotely true. The only part that was true is that I'm really fat and disgusting, and even I have to agree with them that I'm fat, but not disgusting. Whenever I have spent time with my brothers it is consumed by them saying horrible things about my parents and how my parents ruined their lives and they will never be normal because of it. This is why I avoid them. They are miserable people that blame everything on my parents.

After years of seeing how they talk about my parents and each other when they're not around I'm not exactly surprised they would talk about me like that, but it still hurt.

My whole family is toxic and hurtful, but I still really love them.

I have been thinking about cutting them out of my life to save my own sanity, but I feel like this is a cowardly thing to do. I made the first big step by moving an hour away from everyone and separating myself in that way, but I still feel like it's not enough.

So, has anyone here cut family members out of their life or do you think it's a cowardly thing to do?

My boyf is seeming to have a hard time lately (he sort of got kicked out of his house, so he's living on people's couches, and is hating his job), and I want to make him something to perhaps cheer him up, or at least be like "lol I love you baby."

Should I make him the same cookies I made him last time (since I know he likes them and I have all the ingredients), or try something new?

The cookies I made him last time are those chocolate chocolate chip ones, and I then added a broken up mint chocolate bar into it cause he likes mint.

If I try something new, what should it be?

What is the basic plot line of your favorite story (as in, summarized in a few sentences)? "Good versus evil, good wins," is too basic, however. A decent example would be:

Cursed at birth with a "blessing" from a fairy to always be obedient, the heroine struggles to gain her freedom from people in her life who would abuse her obedience. Her mother dies, her father remarries, and her new step-mother and -sisters are the first to pounce on the opportunity to use her for their own benefit—but they are by no means the only ones to do so. The heroine encounters obstacle after obstacle on her way to trying to break the curse, but only after she realizes what harm could come to her love (a prince) and her country (by marrying the prince) does she find the power within herself to break the curse and live happily ever after.

Second question: Reading the summaries posted, can you guess which books they are?

ETA: Feel free to say what you think the titles are, including mine. Otherwise anyone can say, "Oh, I know that one," when they actually might not.

Okay, here's the situation:
You have a sore throat. You go to the doctor. Doctor sees you for about five minutes, looks at your throat, gives you a prescription for antibiotics and sends you packing. Less than 24 hours later - and this is having already taken some of the meds - you can't swallow. Breathing feels threatened. You go to the ER and are declared so sick that you may have meningitis, have a spinal tap and several rounds of IV antibiotics, as well as having to have three huge abcesses removed from your tonsils. Several days later, you are released from the hospital with a smashing bill of several thousand dollars.

Does a medical malpractice lawsuit against the first doctor sound appropriate?

             I bought a very expensive pair of leather boots a couple of weeks ago. (These)   In the picture, you can see that there are a few leather straps that wrap around the ankle of the boots which are secured by a metal buckle on the side.   I have the straps fastened as tight as the buckle will allow.  Well, last night I wore them out, and one of the straps (still buckled) had somehow sagged below the heel of the boot, and I ended up walking on it a lot.    I looked at it this morning and the strap is worn half way through, and the stitching is ruined.  I am really pissed.  I had them securely fastened, but yet the strap still hangs too low on the back.  I paid a lot of money for these and they are brand new!  Do you think this is faulty product and the manufacturer should replace/repair them?  Or  I am just out of luck?

I was thawing out a chicken in a bowl of hot water and from the plastic it was wrapped in it felt thawed, it was squishy, that is the only way I have to gauge it since I have no sensitivity to hot or cold in my hands, so I took it out and the inside is still frozen. I can't get the paper bag that is filled with organs out of the bird. It is frozen to the inside of the bird. How should I speed up the thawing process to get the bag out?

This is gonna make me look like a nutter.

I could have *sworn* that I could see the moon out of the window in my puter room.

Just now, I heard firetruck sirens and being curious I walked to the front room to see if I could tell where they were going...I look out my picture window and there is the moon.. but the living room is on the other side of the house facing another direction.

Am I losing it? Has the earth changes shifted on its axis and no one told me?

Is this normal?

Would you like some warm apple cider?

Do you enjoy full moons? Do you think there is any corolation between people acting weird and the full moon?
*I DO! I work in retail and I swear I can SENSE it coming!!*

3. What kind of MP3 player do you use?

this afternoon, in a joke gone wrong, my husband threw a small box at me and managed to bing me with the corner in my belly squarely and hard enough to wound me (small bloody puncture-type wound, about the size of a cigarette burn).

what sort of revenge should i exact on him for this offense?

I tried to rearrange my groups on my ichat buddy list.
I failed and now the group that I use the most is at the bottom, and I can't get it back to the top my my buddy list. I've tried renaming it so that alphabetically it would come first, but once I logout and quit ichat, it'll go back to how my buddy list was before!
I restarted my computer a ton of times, and it's still not working.

Can anyone help me? Even though this is a little thing, its adding to the stress of the day

Do you think people generally look better with their natural hair color? I do. I especially think "dishwater-blonde" looks horrible only as outgrown roots against platinum blonde hair, and could be quite pretty on its own.

If someone dyes his/her hair, which transition do you think generally works best:

brunette -> blonde
brunette -> redhead
blonde -> brunette
blonde -> redhead
redhead -> brunette
redhead -> blonde

I think a lot of blondes look nice as brunettes, except they usually go from an unnatural shade of blonde in the first place and are naturally closer to brunette anyway.

Are there any redheaded men you think are sexy? Pics?

1. What do you think of women (and men) who go through university and earn a degree, only to end up stay-at-home moms and/or housewives? Are you glad they got their degree anyway, or do you think the resources/time/energy of the school should have gone to better use than making sammiches?

2. (Only vaguely-related, honest.) How do you define feminism?

Once upon a time, in the West Lake village, an apprentice lived with his master. After service of about 30 years, his master became ill and was going to die. One day, the master called his apprentice and asked him for a wish. It could be any wish but just one. The master gave him one day to think about it. The apprentice became very happy and went to his mother for discussion about the wish. His mother was blind and she asked her son for making a wish for her eye-sight to come back. Then the servant went to his wife. She became very excited and asked for a son as they were childless for many years. After that, the servant went to his father who wanted to be rich and so he asked his son to wish for a lot of money. The next day he went to his master and made one wish through which all the three (mother, father, wife) got what they wanted. You have to tell what the servant asked the master.

Does anybody know the answer to this (what the servant's wish was)? It's exactly what the person orginally sent to me. I've literally been trying to solve it the whole day, and it's incredibly frusturating. Help?

Postal scales

Has anyone bought a postal scale on Ebay?

There are like, 5 zillion of each model, and I always lose at the last minute. I think the seller is screwing people over. Why would someone outbid me when they could easily buy one for less than a dollar simply by bidding on any of the other hundred or so of each model listed?

How come some people can chain smoke yet manage to smell good all the time and others positively reek all the time? Does it have to do with the type of cigarettes they smoke or how they hold it or what? And I'm pretty sure it's not all based on hygienic habits because it seems some people can smoke and immediately afterwards you can't smell a trace of it on their clothes.

Do you have any recipes of baked goods I could make in muffin tins that aren't muffins or cupcakes? Things that are less sweet?

Oh, TQC.

1. Suppose you were in a long term relationship with someone, and you loved them a lot, but you were no longer sexually attracted to them because they were boring in the sack or had a low sex drive, while you had a high sex drive and liked to experiment.

If everything else was really good in this hypothetical relationship of yours, would you just put up with bad/not enough sex, or would you tell them it was over?

2. For Halloween, do you opt for "slutty" or "scary?" Or some unholy combination?

I'm helping a friend this week by being part of her performance art installation. The basis of the piece is that she's having four people play dominoes while speaking different languages. I'm the English speaker; we're supposed to acknowledge that the other people are speaking, but since we can't understand each other we just say random sentences that could be lifted from any conversation.

Help me out, TCQ! We're practicing on Tuesday, but it'll still be a challenge to try to keep finding new topics to talk about. What are some sentences from conversations you've had lately? Any memorable phrases? Are you currently in an internet cafe, and will you eavesdrop on the people around you for me? What do you talk about when playing dominoes?

what's the best advice you've ever received?

If a friend never returns emails or anything like that, and only talks when he happens to be online and even when he is, he barely pays attention, and when you say something it takes him ten minutes to say a short reply, and then when you lay into him about it, he stops talking to you altogether...  what should I think?

The strange thing is that this person always seems to be really nice, and he always says it's just because he's quiet, but it irritates me that even when I get him to promise to email back, or even when I'm talking about something important, he still can't.  He's a good friend, but especially now that he's giving me the silent treatment because I confronted him about it...?  Am I just being needy? lol  Or else, what should I do?
