For Christmas, should I buy myself a nice bra? The most expensive bra I own was $12, from Target. If yes, suggestions? I'm only a B, and could probably do with some cleavage-makin'.

Aaaaaaaaaaand..

Tolkien or Rowling?

I just had Sunny D for the first time in years. Man, I forgot how awesome that stuff is.

My mom is looking for a doll called a Baby Pinkie doll. She got it in the late 60's/early 70's from a catalog (Montgomery Ward, Sears or J.C. Penny, she can't remember which). I've tried Amazon, Ebay, and general Googling with no luck.
Have any of you seen these or remember them? Do you have one you'd be willing to sell? Halp?

movies!

will you recommend a movie based on someone's taste? i have to buy a secret santa present tomorrow, and a movie would be easiest but i don't know what to get her.

Anyone have any recommendations for locks that could easily be installed in a bedroom door? Preferably something with a key, and it'd be better off if it was something that'd be installed in the door, rather than a padlock. Brands, types, anything?

I am currently in my computer room/guest bedroom/media room place.  We have 4 cats and therefore 2 litterboxes, which used to be in here, but were moved to the hallway during a guest's stay and I liked them there so I kept them there. 

I think the room still smells like litterbox.  Not necessarily cat funk, but it just smells... off.  I've tried keeping the windows open, I've tried leaving an air filter on all the time, I've tried burning candles, I've tried scrubbing the floors (they're laminate) and the baseboards, febreezing the hell out of the mattress on the guest bed, etc... 

TQC, what can I do to make my computer room/guest bedroom/media room place not smell so ...off?

TQC, can you please give me suggestions on what to get my best friend for Christmas? She really has no specific needs or wants, and I can't think of anything off hand, other than a Starbucks gift card, and I have no desire to get her something as lame as a gift card. She already has a ridiculous amount of movies, books, and pretty much everything else I could think to get her, so now I'm relying on you for help. What in the world should I get my bffl?

If it helps, her sister is a hooker, and her dad is a dealer's middle man, so she's already got the in on hookers and blow.
(no, this last part isn't true. i was simply trying to beat all the "can't go wrong with hookers and blow!" answers to the punch. what kind of bffl do you people think i am!?)

How do you keep yourself occupied?

Story: currently have to wean off of medication and haven't slept in the last twenty four hours. Have checked email and friends list about 20 times, cleaned the house from top to bottom, mowed the lawn, drunk two litres of water. Am in the process of installing Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines if I can find my stupid CD key. Last resort is the Sims and that's not something I want to do.

-Best small point-and-click digital camera that isn't insanely expensive? My biggest stipulation is that it HAS to have a VERY SHORT delay between when I push the button and it takes a picture (my current one seriously takes like 20 seconds and it drives me crazy).


-I live in a condo, and in our basement there is a big bulletin board that houses notices about the building. Yesterday someone printed off and posted one of those "Save the Christmas Trees!" emails. I think it's obnoxious, how should I show my disdain for the Jesus freaks? (srs & non-srs appreciated. I explained what I mean in a reply to the first comment)

"Creepy Old Guy" etiquette?

About the only time I'll go to a bar is when a good local band is playing.
"The Bourbon Knights" (they describe their genre as "pirate swing") are playing tonight at a local establishment.
I've seen the band on previous occasions and they are AWESOME.
(like a musical version of "15 men on a dead man's chest, yo, ho, ho and a bottle of rum"
Even though many of the band members are older, they are VERY popular with the college crowd.
The bar where the band is performing is a college bar, rarely frequently by older people.
I'm 56, slim, smile pleasantly, and don't hit on the ladies (I've been married for 28+ years).
(My wife does NOT like loud music or crowds, and is ok with me flying solo)
 I read in LJ all the time stuff like "OMG, this guy old enough to be my DAD actually LOOKED at me, the PERV!"
So, LADIES, what's the proper etiquette for an older guy to enjoy a show and not be accused of all sorts of malfeasance?

Words have meaning!

Have you ever met someone that kept saying a word or several words improperly?

The other day at the lab I work in, we had a delivery of several kilograms of compound. While we attempted to track down who the heck ordered so much, the delivery person kept referring to the shipment as "samples" or "antibiotics for clinical trials." I wanted to correct her & ask her to please stop using those phrases because it was confusing everyone who was trying to figure out what the compound was for, but I felt like it would be rude. I fail at confrontation. :'(

When faced with this situation, do you correct them or do you just let them keep going and hope that they stop?

So my mom keeps getting these phone calls on our house phone that are REALLY annoying. Basically I answer this phone and a woman that barely speaks English butchers my mothers name when asking for her and I say she can't come to the phone may I take a message and then they go into this whole "do you want free money from the government blah blah blah" and I'm like I'm sorry karen isn't home this is her daughter can i take a message and just now they just hung up its happened 3 or 4 times over the past week, has this happened to anyone else? I really want them to stop calling its freaking annoying.

German translation question

I'm trying to write an email to my future roommate in Germany. I kept what I don't know how to say in English. Can anyone suggest possible translations or see any problems with it?
"Hi, ich bin Jillian. Ich werde Ihre neue Mitbewohnerin sein. Ich habe ein paar Fragen. Gibt es wireless Internet in der Wohnung? Wie viel kostet es, das Internet im Internet Cafe zu benutzen? Gibt es andere Information, die ich wissen sollte? Ich freue mich schon, zu kommen!"

Anything I should add? What do you think I should know before I go?

My grandmother invited the son she hasn't spoken to in six years to her house on Christmas Eve. Nobody really talks to him, and he hasn't been around. My grandma had three surgeries and he never called. My mom holds grudges and is still mad at him.

If he shows up, this is going to end badly, isn't it? I told her that, but my grandma doesn't think it will.

Edit: My grandma isn't telling my mom and her siblings that he might be showing up until the last minute if that makes a difference.

my crush's friend keeps poking me to be friendly i guess, and i don't know him very well, so naturally i overthink things cause i don't want crush's friend to think i'm either obnoxious or rude... lol. *hangs head in awkwardness*

I don't like posting holiday questions as there is always so many but this time I give in...

(If you celebrate Christmas..) How does your day go? We usually get up adn open our gifts, have breakfast, watch tv, dinner and then have a few drinks. Going to be slightly different this year though.

If you play board games or whatever, any recommendations? We have the Glasgow edition of Monopoly which I am dying to play but I'm a bit worried its going to be a bit too complex for my mum who has memory/concentration problems. So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Just in case I suddenly decide to move away from New Zealand...

Hi guys. I'm basing this all on... how pretty or how nice (either landscape, or easy the living is) the region of each country is.


If I were to up and move to America for university to study Physiotherapy, where should I move? If you'd like, what university should I go to?

What if I moved to UK? Where should I move to?

Would you consider Canada? Or do you all hate Canada?

I was thinking about Asia, but the only places that I could even consider going to are Hong Kong or Mainland China, Singapore, Taiwan and Japan.


So, where would be the best place to live in (physiotherapy education is just the added bonus).


Or should I just go apply at Disneyland? Hong Kong or Florida because I'm a New Zealand citizen and Amerca only offers a work experience or something like that.

The yoga teacher lives outside of the city and drives in every Friday night to teach us yoga out of the kindness of her heart.

Does the person who has #1 get to go again at the end? How many steals can a gift have before it is "frozen"? If someone steals your gift, can you steal it back immediately or do you have to wait for another round?

If you don't know what that is, shut up, because you clearly don't play by any of the rules and you don't matter.

So I'm a gay gamer (few and far between!) and I had met this guy who lives a town away from me who is a gamer as well. We hung out at my house all day and played XBox 360 and just had a great time. We were both being flirty but never kissed or any hanky-panky. The next day we hung out again and we were talking about life and relationships and his head was on my chest, as I was rubbing his back. He looked up at me and we started kissing and he was literally shaking because I'm the second guy he's ever kissed (he's 18, I'm almost 20) and I was surprised but thought it was the cutest thing ever. He said he felt guilty because he's in a LDR with a guy from Maryland but his "boyfriend" gave him permission to be with other guys. The chances of them meeting are slim, and this guy told me that he doesn't even know if he wants to be with this guy. We talked some more and I gave him advice as I've been in his situation before. My question is, how or is it appropriate to continue this endeavor as I can see myself with him very cleary. He's cute, innocent, and just puts a smile on my face whenever I think about him. What should I do?!

Okay so I heard this song in a gas station the other day, and tried to remember the lyrics to google them but forgot. I do remember something about sunshine (maybe "a lot of sunshine") and then "a little bit of snow", and the word "magic". Ha. Also it had a sort of motown/60s sound to it, though it might have been more modern. I believe there were some 'la la' or 'hey hey' or some kind of syllable repetition like that. Male voices.

Anyone have any clues? I already googled the lryics I remember and found nothing, so I'm thinking someone is just going to have to know this song.


Hey, the song is "You Baby" by the Turtles (or a billion other bands who covered it)

TQC, I'm hosting a holiday potluck! You're obviously invited.

What would you bring if I told you to bring an appetizer?

A side dish? (Assume that I'm already making a great big turkey, a great big ham, and a great big tofurkey.)

A dessert?

I need a short (short enough to go into an icon) and witty caption to go with Collapse )

"Oh noes" doesn't seem to cover the cuteness. And is far too predictable. I don't like predictable! Help please?

If you can't think of short witty captions then write down longer ones anyway? I need a giggle.

Can someone translate the words "Ultimate Special Technique" or "HissatsuWaza" into Japanese characters for me please? (Need it for a craft project) I can't because apparently I don't have the Japanese font that all the translators are using.
Should look like what's on this Moogle's headband. Thanks.

Today my co-worker (of higher superiority) got really mad because we forgot to read a memo of hers and put up an important poster in store yesterday. She seem to refuse to talk to me for the whole day and totally ignored me when I told her I was going off work. Thing is, I felt that everyone makes mistakes and forgets stuff time from time and just the day before, she forgot about a transfer she promised to a store and I was the one who apologised and sent it out ASAP. I did not mention this "mistake" of hers. But somehow, I feel a little bit angry and frustrated. I'm leaving my job soon and I don't intend to bring it up. My co-worker's really different when she's at work and when she's not.

Have you ever met anyone who seems to have 2 different sides, one that you sort of dislike sometimes and the other you like and want to be friends with?

What should I get my mom for christmas? I already got her 150 measles vaccines delivered to people in need through Unicef. I am going to her house for xmas though and it would be nice to give her an actual present since I got my little sister a couple of things and I know she'll have gotten me some stuff. She just moved into a new house so I was thinking of getting her something to help decorate it, trouble is I've never been there and don't know what she needs. She also has 2 pugs, so maybe some cute new dog leashes. If I ask her she'll just say not to bother of course. Any ideas? The last few things I've gotten her (nice shampoo and stuff from Lush, a set of fancy candles and a Tiffany paper weight) have all gone unused.

Are you making a New years resolution this year?
Any idea yet what it is going to be?
Did you make one last year, what was it, and did you stick to it?

Mine:
1. Yes
2. I have yet to narrow it down to one.
3. Probably, who knows what it was, and I probably did not stick to it since I can not even remember it. o.O

What are some lyrics in songs that you misheard?

My most recent was from .38 Special's song "Hold On Loosely". I heard "a girl I left some years ago" as " a girl I met twelve years ago" and then closed captioning informed me that met was left. For a few years after that (and until until this summer), I heard that part as "A girl I met twelve years ago". The song (and that part) makes so much more sense now what .38 Special's saying.

What's the longest time you've gone without leaving your house?

I haven't left my house since I came back from school over a week ago. I don't drive and I don't have any friends in my hometown, so I just kind of sit around like a bum. I'm going to have serious cabin fever by the time winter break is over!

Bedding

I just bought a fabulous down comforter. I've never owned one before, and I don't want to trash it by mistake, as they are pretty pricey.

If you have a down comforter, how long have you had it?

How do you wash it?

Do you use it in the summer, too?

Any down-sides to having a down filled comforter? (I don't have any allergies to down, FYI)

Do you end up buying things for yourself whenever you go out gift shopping?

What have you bought for yourself while gift shopping?
I bought three pairs of jeans this week but I was hard up for jeans that fit, and two bras cause they were clearanced for 2.99 and I have a weakness for bras.

Have you bought any gifts to donate to charity? What have you donated?

How many people do you buy for whose birthdays are also within a few weeks of the holidays?
