If living in the Los Angeles/Orange County area or are familiar with the place, where are your favorite whole-in-the-wall places to explore?

+ It's one of my goals to explore more this year. I've lived here all my life, and need to get out of the suburbs and see what SoCal has to offer me. I particularly find the Silverlake area pretty fun & inspiring, and am planning a trip to Studio City to watch some plays and visit some cafes.

I'm having a birthday party next week and I would like to serve delicious cocktails as an alternative to the hard liquor and beer that is usually served at these types of parties. I'd ideally like to buy 2-3 kinds of alchohol and 2-3 kinds of mixers, but I really have no experience at all. Sooooo TQC, I ask you:

Favorite cocktail recpies?? (preferably inexpensive!)

silly me... at work today our manager said that we could leave early, the boss was building chairs with some help and the manager left the room and neither myself or my coworker wanted to leave while the manager wasn't present so that the boss didn't think we were skyving off. we waited for the manager to come back, and the boss and the manager both said to go home. BUT. i'm retarded and sometimes think later of the things i should have done. while we were waiting we should have been helping with the damn chairs! i'm worried he'll be talking about it with his wife over dinner saying how lazy we are.

is there any way i can bring it up with him on monday and apologize without looking like a fool? im so afraid of being fired.

have y'all heard of the book american women are crazy? (click the link for more info)

so this dickwad was on a local atlanta radio station this morning, rock 100.5, and he said that if you're dating an american woman, you need to get her handwriting analyzed and her background checked. he also recommended that you go to eastern europe, repeatedly naming the ukraine, because women will sacrifice themselves for their families there. as in, will marry you and "behave" if you send money back to their families every month.

can i get a headcount on how many people, ~crazy american women~ or not, would like to castrate this bastard?

So this is a serious question, but ill take nonserious answers if you arent feeling very serious.
Basically, Im legally changing my first name. Who cares why...any ideas on names?
My three favorites ive chosen are Alice, Amelia, and Bella. (Oh and the name Bella is in no way refering to that girl from twilight, ive always loved the name Belle, but Bella seems more modern.)

Death becomes her

How will you go out? Pick an unique death for yourself

While visiting the museum, the T-Rex skeleton collapses on top of you
You parachute one day, and some dumb schmuck in a hanglider crashes into your chute at 2,000 feet
You discover the most fabulous sushi buffet, and one hungry night, you go nuts. You succumb later to mercury poisoning
Watching a Larry the Cable Guy marathon, you literally die laughing, much to the shame of everyone around you
They cancel your favorite tv show and you drink yourself to death on cooking wine
You're inebriated at a bar somewhere and throw up on Kimbo Slice's shoes. He literally beats the crap out of you
You're looking good at the ice rink, when you find the thin ice
You've got your earbuds in, your ipod's playing your favorite song. You crank it up, and you don't hear the elephant stampede coming your way
You're on the 20th floor in a hotel elevator, when the sumo convention lets out and they crowd your elevator. The weight capacity is exceded and you all plummit to your doom
You get bitten by a radioactive spider! But instead of getting super spidey powers, you die slowly from radioactive poisoning
Using the port-a-pottie on day 3 of a Monstes of Rock concert, someone pushes your toilet over. You drown in all the collective pee
You die from exhaustion, mid-coitus, in an orgy
You make a joke about Twilight within earshot of a herd of teenage girls. You're ripped to pieces by their emo fangs
Sarah Palin mistakes you for a moose and shoots you
You make the record books for being the first person to overdose on Flintstone's chewable vitamins

I have a feeling that I've asked this before, but I have no idea what the answer is so...

Would a medical alert anklet go unnoticed? Would that be totally pointless? I like matching my bracelets with my outfits but I don't care what's on my ankle. (I have a wallet card but people keep telling me to get a bracelet, and I just found a site with ones I don't think are hideous...)

2. Can you explain how this video makes you feel? Should potassium explode in or outside your mouth?

Beverages with drugs in them (e.g. caffeine, alcohol) have a lot of focus on taste differences, communities centered around taste, and even have master tasters to help ensure that the taste remains consistent over the many decades since the beverage was first created. This even applies to smoked products.

So why is it that drinks without drugs have no taste comparisons? Alcohol ruins the normal taste of a drink, so you'd think there would be less concern with taste.

There are plenty of flavorful drinks made from fruits, vegetables, milks, and more! Personally, I love milk and do notice significant taste differences between brands and most others would too if they had tried some variety, side by side.

People might find being a milk connoisseur silly, but how is it more silly than being a wine or coffee connoisseur? There are substantial differences based on the animal's genetics, diet, medical intervention (e.g. hormones), up bringing, and species (not just from cows).

My fiance and I saw an ad on TV last night for some place in Cobb or Atlanta that was liquidating their stock, and it seemed to be all electronics ($50 for a videocamera, $150 for some laptops, etc. etc). We don't have cable at home, so haven't ever seen the ad before. This is a far stretch, but does anyone know what it is? He swears it has Cobb in the name, but maybe not.

Yes, I know I am a nerd.

Computers are getting faster and more sophisticated at an extraordinary rate. The computer you're using to read this probably would have been a multi-million dollar supercomputer in 1990. In the future, do you think computers will ever be advanced enough to reach a level of self-awareness?

Eventually, we're going to have a robot-driven industrial revolution and many jobs (particularly service industry and factory jobs) will become obsolete. This is more of a when-not-if kind of scenario. What would people do to live when all of these jobs are done by machines?

It's 30 years in the future. Brain implants have been developed that would integrate themselves with your own brain, allowing you to have a perfect memory, perform complex calculations, and freely access all the information and features of the internet. Would you get one?

I hate computer processors. I don't know a damn thing about them...
So...that being said:

Would an Intel® Pentium® Dual Core T3200 (2.0GHz/667Mhz FSB/1MB cache) work in place of a 2.4 GHz P4 processor?

I'm trying to order my new laptop and I want to make sure the processor will work.

I have a $30 Barnes and Noble giftcard and nothing better to do with my day. What books should I buy? The last book I bought was Dry by Augusten Burroughs. I like humor, especially humorous memoirs. I'm not really into anything fantasy/sci-fi. Help me! Also, try as my friends might, I refuse to read Twilight or anything of that ilk.

Also, I've read A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers and loved it. If you have read You Shall Know Our Velocity, did you enjoy it?

I just thought of  a cool dog name (Wilberforce, if you are interested) and the type of dog i think it'd suit is one from either Lady and the Tramp, or 101 Dalmations.

I also have  feeling his name a colonel or something army related. any ideas who it is?

Do you hate hospitals? Yes. I started crying about going when my dad was in one, even though he was fine by the time I went. I just don't like them, which is going to be a problem whenever I have a baby.

How many car accidents have you been in? Two. The first one was in October '99. I was in fourth grade. We were a few feet from the garage. The second one was much worse. It was in December '99. I was with my grandparents. We were going to a Christmas party. Teenagers pulled out in front of us and we hit them. My grandmother broke her kneecap and was in the hospital for Christmas. We didn't open presents at her house until New Year's. To this day, I've only sat in the front passenger seat a few times. I just don't like sitting there anymore. I was in the back, but that doesn't matter.

It's cold on a Saturday and I'm full from brunch. I decided to take it upon myself to update my resume. Anyways, I had two interships that were basically the same thing plus and minus a few things at different magazines and I would (for space) like to put them together as one. They occurred on different dates and stuff.

How would I be able to do this? And those of you who are in the industry already, do you think I should just cut out other college leadership stuff and just separate the different internships. I know it's only supposed to be one page.

Any help will be appreciated. Have you ever put basically combined two different jobs that were the same thing together? Does it look sloppy? And if it matters, I'm a junior year college student. So it's basically like 2 internships, 1 job and a bunch of extracurricular activities like Student Council/Senate/my sorority.

Do you think it's weird to not let your SO read your journal?
Does it make a difference if its an online journal or a written journal?
Does it make a difference if anybody else is allowed to read it?

I only keep a written journal and my boyfriend is not allowed to read it. It bugs him a little but he knows I'm not hiding it from him specifically because NOBODY is allowed to read it, I just feel uncomfortable with that. But if I kept a friends-only online journal or anything like that, he would be allowed to read that.

I'm just wondering where you guys see the line between being open and honest with your SO and still having some privacy for yourself.

My good friend is driving back to Washington from Kansas after a very sad week with her dying father. We've been texting each other back & forth. What are some good, yet short (160 characters) messages I can send her as she makes the long drive back to help her feel better and not so alone until she arrives home?

So far I've sent her Dalai Lama quotes & knock knock jokes along with the personal 'hugs' and so forth.

(Can't believe I actually have to explain this)
OK, I obviously don't expect her to be driving down the freeways typing away on her cell phone when she should be watching the road. When people make long road trips they sometimes like to stop every now and then to eat, sleep, get gas, take a break from driving.. etc. I'm thinking it'd be nice if she had a couple of little notes here & there when she does these things just to let her know she's being thought of by somebody who cares about her.

I've looked up different ways to do this but I want your opinions on what would be the easiest way to transfer music from my ipod to my computer?

Sorry I'm posting again so soon...

My mom just jacked all of my new books!
Can you recommend some books for someone who likes Jodi Picoult, Janet Evanovich and things like "Eat, Pray, Love" and "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle"?

She just stole my brand new "Revolutionary Road"! argh

Do you hate letting people borrow your books, too? Why does it freak me out so much?

Is it too pushy of me to propose to my parents, who have been planning to come visit me for awhile, that instead of visiting me we all meet up somewhere else and take a much less expensive vacation together?

My mom has already visited me here (granted, it was three years ago) and my dad probably wouldn't care if he didn't see where I lived...and it would save them a LOT of money (thousands of dollars). They've been set on visiting me but all the ticket prices are exorbitant, and that's just the cheapest ticket prices.

Used Car Purchasing in Twin Cities Metro, Minnesota?

I'm currently in the preliminary stages of looking to buy a used car. I live in the Twin Cities Metro area in Minnesota. I just wanna get a read on dealers people have had experiences with, who's offered some of the best deals, what kind of car did you get/look at etc.

Basically in case anyone out there has purchased a used car from a twin cities dealer, I'd like to know how it went and if there are any dealers you'd recommend. I'm looking to buy a 5-10 year old vehicle; more than likely a light wagon.

1. Do you think it is creepy to look someone up on Facebook if you know them only as an acquaintance/matey-type? Please note you are not planning to communicate to them via this site as you don't have a profile. So I guess it is in an unsettling lurker kind of way, rather than anything proactive.

2. Is there anyone here undecided about whether they want children, and if yes, what are your reasons for uncertainty?

I've been dying my hair light blonde for the past 8 years. I'd like to change to strawberry blonde. I usually touch up the roots (ash blonde naturally) every six weeks, and don't touch any of the other previously-dyed hair. How do I change it all to red? I just did my roots 2 weeks ago... can I change to strawberry blonde now, since I'll be doing the whole head?
