my cat got knocked up a few months back and now we have 5 kittens. i tried to post them up for adoption on craigslist but i kept getting flagged-idk why either! i love these little fur balls more then ever but its really making a impact on my wallet! im thinking that ill just give them to the spca so that they can give them the shots they need, get fixed and interact with other cats.

is there a process i have to go through or do i just give it to them?

How in the world are Victoria's Secret bras supposed to be washed? Just normal handwashing? I've been handwashing, but I dunno.. it feels weird. & I have a feeling that I'm doing something wrong. My friend says you're supposed to spot wash them, but that sounds ridiculous to me. Bras absorb sweat. How is a person supposed to spot wash sweat?

Girls, what waterproof mascaras do you recommend? I've been buying waterproof mascaras, but they're complete bull. They smudge just as badly as my non-waterproof mascaras. If it matters, I'm more interested in volumizing and not lengthening mascaras.

Salt water aquariums?

So, my boyfriend and I want to start up a little, salt water aquarium. I know they are expensive and time consuming and whatever else. The bright tropical fishies and beautiful coral are worth it. We have a 29 gallon tank with nothing in it and I don't want to have to only rely on the guys at Country Critters, ha. Does anyone have any awesome websites/tips/advice? Danke!

The stupidity is painful

So some guy who I don't know requested me as a friend on facebook, I added him.
I got a message from his wife asking Who I was and Why I was friends with her husband (oh and that he said he didn't know me and that I added him).

Is this the dumbest thing you've heard today? Has anything this asinine happened to you? What would you do? (I can't write her back...but I DID write him back)

Something different.

I have a few questions to ask about social and economic policies.

Assume you are given complete power over all aspects of the United States. You have 2 years to fix as many problems as possible. You have to fix the following though in your two years.

Current Economic Issues (Pick 2 or more):

How would you balance the current budget? http://marketplace.publicradio.org/features/budget_hero/
How do you the energy crisis?
What do you do about health care?
How do you keep jobs in US?
How do you increase wages?

Current education system (Pick 1 or more):

How do you educate children better?
How do you fix college costs?
How do you make people want to teach?
What do you do about violence in schools?

Overall:

How would you increase the standard of living in these two years?

What else would you fix or change?

I don't expect you to have an answer for each one, but try your best, and thanks.

You people are sick

1) Do you have any good fever dream stories? Particularly memorable half-lucid rambles?

2) When you get sick, what is your default? Do you get nauseous, headache, etc?

3) Have you ever been in the hospital? Why? Any fun/serious anecdotes?

4) Any near-death experiences?

 also: Why does the moth in my room keep flying into my face and trying to kiss me? Doesn't it know I am not mothsexual and do not appreciate his advances?

So, I was wrong last night and my husband does not have self-restraint. The PS3 was just hiding in the entertainment center. I didn't "forbid" the purchase or anything, but I heartily disapprove because it's expensive and we have an unused PS2 sitting in the living room.

So, this PS3 thing probably cost $400-$500, right? My question is, what expensive toy should I buy for myself so that we're "even"? Serious and non-serious answers please.

I'm moving and Curves will be across the street from me whereas the other two "normal" gyms are around 5 miles from me.

3. shweetnettie13 just informed me that the owner of Curves supports pro-life organizations and causes. Assuming you are pro-choice, would this affect your decision to join Curves? Would it automatically disqualify Curves as a choice to work out?

Struggling..

Hi all, I'm currently studying as a creative media design in Singapore Polytechnic. It'll take 3 years for me to graduate & receive a creative media design diploma. From then I can either proceed to work as graphic designer, visual communicator, illustrator etc or I can further my studies in an university for BA (HONS) in arts.

However, this's not what I really want. I've always been inspired to become a fashion designer and I'm really keen and sure that I want to work in a fashion industry in future. So now I'm struggling in making a decision of transfering of course that'll cost me to lose a year time because I can only enrol into a course when a new term starts which will be in next april 09 but also choosing a suitable school/course that can compliment my desire. It will cost a lot to study at a private school here for Fashion design too. As fashion design's not really significant in Singapore. I'm afraid the courses here are not as good as compared to what they have in overseas. My ultimate goal's still to further my studies in Central St Martins even if I managed to attain a diploma in Fashion Design in Singapore.

I know many ponder why I decided to choose to study graphic design at the first place if I really keen about fashion design. The reason lies a lot on my fickle mindedness and also I am quite easily influenced and manipulated by the comments people made around me. I have quite a handful of cousins that graduated from graphic design courses advised me during the decision making period that I should choose something that appeals more realistically in terms of attaining a job in future instead of looking into my goals. Since there will be a photography and drawing module, and I'm quite good in photoshop, and illustrator and also do not mind studying about it, why don't I try doing graphic design instead? So I went ahead with the course. I thought I can live with it but after completing numerous assignments, I realized this is not I want.

So do you think I should continue staying to study something I do not really fancy for another 3 years or should I just follow my heart and dreams?

Sorry about the long entry. And thanks a lot for reading until here.

Doctor Who

If you were having a Doctor Who themed Tea Party for your birthday (it's not a Big Number, but you and your friends use birthdays as an excuse to get together and do something silly or interesting or nice) what games would you play? And what would you eat? On my list is tea, scones (just because I wanted a tea party) chips (since they go on about them all the time with Rose) and edible ball bearing involved cupcakes. On my list of ideas of games is 'pin the plunger to the dalek'... unfortunately it's too cold outside for us to use a real plunger and I'm not sure if the walls in here would stand to some enthusiastic plunging. :P
And just for fun, what would you personally wear if you were invited?

edit: Also, what songs should I play? I have Doctoring The Tardis, and maybe some historical pieces, and a few songs about the future, and a song by The Chaser about fans of Doctor Who. I can never remember what songs were played in the show.

Funeral garb

So an uncle of mine whom I wasn't very close to died. His memorial is Saturday. He wasn't very religious (and neither is my aunt), and it's not a traditional funeral with the priest, the chain of cars to the cemetery, and a burial. It'll be a short "service" with a luncheon afterwards. I bought this outfit and I wasn't sure if it wasn't too flashy for a memorial of this type. What do you guys think?

Trip to the UK!

This is for those who've been to the UK (in this instance I'm including "Paris" when I say "UK", even though that's so incorrect), or for, uh, anyone else, really.

There's a strong possibility I'm taking a trip next spring/summer to the UK. It looks like I'll be flying in to England, spending a day or maybe two in London and area, and then hopping over to Paris for a day, and then spending the rest of my time in Scotland.

My question is: what should I do while there? What's absolutely unmissable on a person's first trip across the pond? What museums/sights to I need to see?

Thanks!

my mom recently came to visit my sister and i...including a few days in florida, blah blah blah.
anyhoo...she got home from her trip late at night and called me HYSTERICAL and CRYING. The woman she hired to watch her cats never came. Not one visit to feed and water them in two weeks.

EDIT: this woman is a professional, bonded kitty sitter.

HOLY SHIT.

so my mom has been freaking out. the cats SEEM ok, she says...very affectionate, thirsty and hungry. I am worried they could have kidney damage. A vet checkup is forthcoming.

anyhoo, the woman claims that my mom NEVER called her to set up the visits. (she has a key to my mom's house). As she is coming down from the hysterics, she remembers that she did, in fact, contact this woman twice from my sister's cell phone. And today we proved it. Two calls, one of them was four minutes.

To you who went to see The Dark Knight when it opened:

If a major motion picture was released for which opening night/day tickets were highly in demand, and the theaters decided that they would raise the price a couple of bucks to take advantage of the hoards of people going to see it, would you still purchase the tickets? In other words, if your regularly priced not quite so in demand movie tix (you know, like Mamma Mia or something) were $10 and The Dark Knight tickets for opening day were $12, would you have bought them anyway?

old crazy women and umbrellas

*cross posted to my lj

Yes, I came across one today.
There is this old crazy woman who walks up and down the streets stealing whatever she can get her hands on. Some things have gone missing from our lawn and we know its her. I have heard many people complaining about this woman. So anyway...
I'm taking Liberty out for a walk when a group of kids, probably 10 or so say to me, hey ma'am there is an old woman stealing from your lawn. I walk up and say what are you doing?
She starts yelling at me and hitting me with her umbrella. I'm trying to be decent but you can only take so many blows to the face before you lose it. I finally grabbed it and got in her face and screamed I DONT CARE HOW OLD YOU ARE I WILL HIT YOU BACK! This is after taking 8 or 9 tough blows to the head. Liberty is barking and the kids are screaming.
I'm trying to keep the old woman off from me, keep Liberty from going crazy, and keep the kids quiet. I called the police while she was pushing me and hitting me, she even slapped me. Saying this was not my property. She kept saying I'm German I'm German! Whatever the fuck that means.
The police came in less than a minute. Two cruisers. I guess she does this a lot because they knew her and told her to go home or she would be arrested. They asked me if I wanted to press charges and of course I said no. I was so close to bitch slapping an old lady.
wow.

1. What would it take for you to hit an elderly person?

2. Has someone ever attacked you and you didn't strike back? Why?

To this day, some of my former colleagues remind me of my back-scratching and staring employee and wonder what happened to basic etiquette." 

Is scratching your back with a ruler really so horrible?

Will you make some suggestions for an awesome/ creative date my boyfriend and I can go on, and preferably one that's budget-friendly?  We're kind of bored with the typical dinner, movie dates and such...

What is your type of art? Do you write, draw, paint, act, take pictures, what?


I know we are all tired of TDK questions (lies!) but I was wondering, was the pencil used in the glorious magic trick unused or was it sharpened? I need to know whether it was pointy or not bbs. Okay I think I'm going with "it was sharpened." Thanks bbs!

Do you ever buy health/beauty products before your current supply is finished and then have several on hand?

What sorts of things are common for you to do this with?

ALSO-why do you think this happens?

I have three bottles of lotion-all different kinds. One has maybe 1/4 left the other about 1/3
I also have an extra partially used body wash
I tend to do with with shampoo and conditioner too because I tend to run out of conditioner before shampoo, I have a habit of using too much :/ Just recently though I threw a bunch of them out. With me, I tend to see I'm getting low then say "well I better buy more" then I shove the old bottle away in case I run out. Which has happened. It's more prevalent with shampoo and conditioner though, I think, since I se them faster

Poll #1228045 My own privates, Idaho

You're dating someone new, and you really like them. You get along great, and it seems like you've known them longer than you actually have. However, you haven't slept with them yet. It just hasn't happened. Then, about a week later, you finally get their pants off. If your SO is a guy, he's got a really small penis (2"). If your SO is a girl, she's got a huge, cavernous vagina, larger than the girth of your trouser snake. Lesbians...I don't know how this changes things for you. So, there they are, naked as a jaybird, with FAIL genitalia. Where does this relationship go after this?

I keep on dating him/her. I can tolerate bad sex. Even really bad sex. We get along so well, and that's what's important
22(21.2%)
I get them off, and fake my own pleasure. I make it a point to dissolve the relationship within the next week
18(17.3%)
I'll try to make it work, but sex is a big component in my relationships. I will do my best to overlook their sexual flaws, but I can't promise a long future
49(47.1%)
I either burst out laughing or burst into tears. Either way, the relationship ends once the bedroom door slams behind me

stupid sunburn question

I never really had bad sunburn before, but i do now. I got pretty badly burnt on saturday (bright red face, rough skin... no blisters or anything). It doesn't hurt much anymore, its starting to dry up and peel. I sort of peeled off some of the skin on my nose because I could. Now it's nice and smooth, but I looked in the mirror and noticed that where I peeled the skin off is like, 5 shades lighter than the rest. I look stupid. Will this fade or am I going to be two-toned for a while?

Doctor, doctor

You know how people will say they're too embarrassed to see the doctor about something, and then other people say "don't worry, they've seen worse"? What do you think the worst thing the average family doctor has personally seen/treated?
