Have you heard of the drink Purple Rain? If so, what goes in it? On the internet, I've found recipes that include vodka and/or cranberry juice, but the way it's made around here (and the way I like it) is blue and red maui with sprite. I'm guessin it may be a regional thing?
HOW DO I MAKE THE DAMN BACKLIGHT ON MY ZUNE TURN OFF WHEN IT'S NOT IN USE?
Please help me, as Google is not.
jay kay, I fail at searching. I got it.
So, um, should I waste time trying to make more cupcakes before my flight? If I DON'T, I get an extra hour and a half of sleep...even if I don't make more cupcakes, I'm getting a maximum of...four hours.
On Sunday I'm adopting a turtle! A girl at my college is rehoming her painted turtle, so I said I would take him. I've never had a turtle before though, so what should I know? What are the best resources out there for new turtle owners? I'm prepared to do lots of research, but I know the web is probably full of a lot of bad information so I want to make sure I do this right =)
What should I wear to my husband's graduation ceremony?? It's going to be 65 degrees out and rainyish (don't know if it will be inside or out). If it were warmer I would wear a sundress, but for this kind of weather I don't know. Suggestions please?
Why do cats slink around your feet when you're not paying attention, then give you mean looks when you step on them? I can understand the ferrets doing it (without the nasty looks), but I thought cats were supposed to be smarter than that.
I give flute lessons to a gaggle of high school girls, and this past fall I picked up an extra student when a friend of mine (who taught this student) moved away to school three hours away. My question is, should I offer to let my friend teach her again for the summer?
I would really hate to do that because it's an unstable learning environment and I don't want my student to feel lost, but I don't know what the etiquette is for passing along a student. And now just the idea of my friend wanting to teach her is making me feel guilty. My friend hasn't said anything, I just wonder if I should check with her.
eta Do you ever surprise your mom with gifts or does she tell you what to get her? My mom just has a list of things to get her so it's more of a matter of when she's getting something. I kind of think it takes away from the gift-giving/-getting experience. :(
Have any of you personally had any experience getting black out of your hair? I dyed my hair 'blue' and it is basically black, and now I'm over it, so I want to lighten it up to a darker brown. Any suggestions so I don't have ugly roots/orange hair, etc?
Would you rather have sex with Han Solo or Indiana Jones?
I just told my friend I would go to the zoo with her. She failed to mention that I will be helping her watch five kids. Kids. Children. As in like, little people. I can't explain to you how hard it is for me to be around children. Yes I love them they are cute, they make me laugh and cry. But when they start screaming I loose my mind.
1. How should I prepare myself for this event?
2. At the zoo, which animal is your favorite to gawk at?
3. Have you ever held a wild animal? If so, what animal was it? (swimming with Dolphins and stuff counts)
hi. i got out of a bad relationship a few months ago, where i was really badly hurt. i have now developed trust issues and am apprehensive to try to date someone else. however, i know that the one thing that i'll need to be 1000% oaky with the past is to be with someone who can redeem my faith in humanity.
there is a girl that i'm interested in, but for whatever reason, it doesn't feel the same as when i normally crush on a girl. i don't get the butterflies as much, though, i do get excited to see her and spend time with her.
do you think that maybe i've put up a mental block because of my past relationship? i am really terrified to get hurt again, and i know that i'm not pursuing this nearly as vulnerably (is that a word?) as i normally would.
my friends have hung out with us and have come to the consensus that i like her but am afraid to like her, and that's my mental block.
any advice? have you been in this situation before? any thoughts would be amazing. thank you all.
I have never made cheesecake before. How difficult is it to make cheesecake? Do you have a favorite recipe?
I just watched my cat leap from the table landing face first into the coffee table that wasn't even three feet away, slide off from the coffee table and tumble onto the floor. The other day I watched her jump from the coffee table to the table, undershoot and ran into the table head first. Was it wrong of me to laugh when this happened? Does my cat have bad eyes or is she just very stupid?
Why is it that in most horror movies when you have two chicks, one who is battle-ready and tough and the other who is a simpering idiot who constantly needs rescuing, the tough one ALWAYS dies rather than the accident-prone bimbo? Is it because the weak one is the one the hero will fall in love with and the tough chick is probably an icky lesbian no one wants to see survive?
so this guy I've been dating and I are supposed to hang out tonight. since his phone is currently broken he's going to call me from someone else's phone. we've been dating a while but seriously how long should I wait for him to call?
1) Am I a terrible person for not liking flowers? Not that I dislike them, I just don't feel strongly about them one way or the other. 2) What do you think of a woman wearing a fragrance designed for men?
I am going with my friend to her house for a week. She lives like 5 hours away, at the beach on the coast of Georgia. She just called me to inform me to "pack light and squishy" because my stuff has to go in a trunk with a PC in parts. TQC, this is a week. How "light" can I get away with, really? How many pairs of jeans/how many shirts should I pack? (considering I can do laundry). And where do I put my books? I can't travel without books!
I called a close friend of mine a few minutes ago to make plans for dinner. He sounded kind of sad, so I asked him what was up. He often sounds kind of sad when he's stressed out about work, but instead he said that a friend of his from his hometown died last night.
I totally did not what to say. I'm kind of freaking out that I said something wrong or bad and now I've hurt his feelings in his time of need or something like that. Would you be mad or hurt by anything I said if you found out a friend of yours just died?
What should I talk to him about tonight when we get dinner? I was thinking of saying, "Hey, do you want to talk about it?" and if says yes, then of course I'll sit quietly and offer words of sympathy when appropriate. And if he says no, I'll change the subject. But to what? It doesn't seem entirely appropriate to start telling him about the video on saw on YouTube about the kitties running on the treadmill.
What are some brick and mortar (i.e. not online) stores that sell or might sell tea-length petticoats?
I'm planning to check out some vintage shops too, but is that the sort of thing you could find in a lingerie store or department store? I know they have the little short ones for under those "sexy" halloween costumes but I need one for a knee length dress.
1- Is there any movie/tv show that you watch that isn't really your style, yet it interests you anyway? What is it, if so?
2- What's the last odd association you made with something?
3- What windows/tabs do you have currently open?
Mine: 1- Twice in a Lifetime... it's a religion-based show, but not overly so, and in the end, it's cute if you rip out the 'save your soul, go to heaven' part. 2- How a mango is apparently the same size that my baby is. Then devouring the mango. ;) 3- A baby names site--clicking on 'random name' to get ideas, this 'post an entry' page, and my yahoo mail.
I've been left to my own devices for dinner so I am going to bring something home/grab food somewhere. What should I get? My options are
Wegmans which has a decent variety of ready made foods but is 15 min away Moe's South West Grill-I've never been there and it's 15 min away Subway-close fast, healthier than a burger but I had it the other day Burger King or McDonalds not the healthiest I've had more than I normally do (by more I mean a a few times in the past month or so) got some pizza from Wegmans
Why do all my friends suck right now? I'm bored and wanna talk to somebody but none of them are around.
Say someone needed to make a simple little program where they could enter the dimensions of a room and furniture/etc, and they'd get wee scale versions to move around and play with. Like this, but interactive. And with less LOL.
What programming language would be the best one to use for this?
If you're in a relationship and have always been faithful to your partner, should you limit time spent hanging out with members of the same sex as your partner?
For example, you're a heterosexual female. Your friends are primarily male. Assuming it isn't interfering with time spent with significant other, should you restrict time spent with these males (whether in an attempt to respect your partner or otherwise)?
You guys I was just playing Mario Kart with my boyfriend and then my friend and her boyfriend, online and I got stuck in this tunnel going backwards so I start to laugh. But then I am laughing so hard that my eyes start tearing up and it burned SO SO BADLY. Tears were streaming down my face.
Has this ever happened to you?
What could burning tears possibly mean?? *non srs welcome*

I have important AS exams coming up and nothing is going in! I've tried reading my notes out loud, re-writing my notes, reading them in my head, creating spider diagrams, doing past questions... I still feel like I don't know anything and I have SO much to learn!
How organized would you say your computer is? I try to keep all my music and pictures in their correct folders and my school work in the school folder, but I'm very good at throwing things on the desktop until it gets really cluttered. :/
If you play World of Warcraft or know someone who does... how many hours would you say you/they play in one sitting? I've been getting in about five hours a day lately... I think that's really sad.
Okay...so, every Mother's Day, we buy a card for my mom and my MIL from both my husband and myself. We also get them each a card from our son. Now, I was under the impression that the holiday was to honor all of the moms out there, be they moms to human children or the furry kind, women who are "like a mother" to you, etc.
So, here's my question: am I out of line to expect something from my family for Mother's Day? We always go to either my mom's or my MIL's for the day, and usually stay for dinner. We get flowers for our mothers, along with small gifts. So, am I missing some piece of etiquette that states that you need only honor mothers in previous generations, and it's cool to ignore the mothers in generations after yours? Because I'm lucky if I get a "You, too." after saying, "Happy Mother's Day!' I've been a mother for almost 5 years now. Can I get like, a card or something?
Mothers of TQC: Do your mothers get you anything - anything at all - for Mother's Day?
TQC, I just watched "An American crime" [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0802948/] with Ellen Page and Cathrine Keener. For whoever else has seen it, thoughts? I personally think Ellen Page should've gotten the Oscar nom for THIS movie instead of Juno.
To make some extra $$, I've sold my used CDs/movies. The first time I did it, I was selling my old Hanson and NSync CDs at a store called For Your Entertainment, and the girl was ringing them up on the cash register to see how much they would pay me for them. A lot of the CDs went for nothing, because they had a surplus of used ones, or whatever. Have any of you ever sold your old stuff to stores that accept them? If so, to what stores? And is there any way to figure out how much they'll pay you before going to the store? Such as, calling ahead of time or going online? Because leaving the store with my old NSync CD that nobody wanted was pretty embarrassing. Thanks!
For whatever reason certain websites don't load for me anymore (google, yahoo, amazon) but every once in a while it will load for about a minute and then not work anymore. I don't understand what in the world could be causing this, does anyone have any advice/ideas?
1. You are granted one item but it has to be something that you or/and somebody else absolutely need, not want. So, what do you choose? (It cannot be money or anything that will result into you or/and somebody else getting money. If you decide to choose anything money-related as stated above, you will absolutely get nothing and you will get the blue skin disorder.)
2. Is 'Huckleberry Finn' racist to you? Why or why not?
There's a poem I read two years ago that's been on my mind lately. I believe it's a classic one and somewhat well-known, nothing modern, and I remember that it talks about people dancing in some sort of room with violins playing while the narrator sits on the steps and observes. In one line in particular, he talks about some of the women smoking cigarettes looking like mannequins.
Ugh! I know this is incredibly vague but I can't remember any more of it and it's really bugging me! Does anyone know what poem this could be?
Does anyone have any stories about introducing a new dog into your home when you already have pets? I'm thinking of getting a new puppy this summer but I worry a lot about how my two dogs I already have will react, especially since they're not especially playful/sociable and one of them is very possessive of us and craves attention. In the long run I think it would benefit her, because we're worried she'll be lonely when our other dog dies (she's getting pretty up there) and think it would be better to introduce her to a new dog while our better-behaved dog is around to be a good influence.
Anyway I've done some googling and stuff so I'm not just going into this blind, and I don't need your tips per se, but I was just curious about personal anecdotes if you've got some, thanks! The good, the bad, the ugly...
Scenario: Your parents "bought" you a decent used car for your birthday that they picked out (you like it a lot, it's a nice car, it's probably something you'd pick out yourself), and presented it to you as a gift. The next day, after accepting the gift graciously, they inform you that it is not actually a gift, and you will be paying them back between $3000-$4000. How do you react? (They also pay most of the gas and insurance).
In addition to this, when you come home for summer, your parents frequently ask to use your car and you offer to let them use it because it gets better mpg. Is this too generous of you?
The reason I ask is because my parents did this for me. I am perfectly okay with it, but some of my friends (some of which where given cars when they turned 16, some of which were BMWs, etc, but some don't have cars yet, whatever, that doesn't really matter) think it was a dick move of my parents, and that they shouldn't have given me the car around my birthday if it wasn't a gift, and they shouldn't ask to use it since it's mine...Their opinion has no effect on my actions, I'm just wondering...
I teach junior high social studies and we're starting a unit on Monday about Edo period Japan. I want to have a really wicked ninja/samurai/something scene from a film playing when my students come in the room to "hook" them. Do you know of any good scenes from Japanese films that eighth graders will think is pretty cool?
