I want to take a one day class called "How to Use Your Digital SLR" at the International Center of Photography. What do you think I would need to bring with me?

I'm kind of worried I'll be the only one there who has no idea what the fuck they are doing, or that everyone else is going to show up with like 20 lenses or something. I realize this is totally irrational. I'm full or irrational worries.

I've been meaning to take this class for about a year now but I always end up changing my mind.

Today (technically yesterday) while I was sitting in my doctor's office waiting to get a prescription renewed, a flyer on the wall caught my attention. Listing "Services not covered by Saskatchewan Provincial Medical Services", it included prices for IUDs ($150, boo) and circumcisions ($180).

Apparently cutting skin of a dick costs the province more than sticking a piece of plastic in a uterus. Weird.

Also I found out that the Sexual Health Centre here ("Formerly Planned Parenthood") sells birth control pills for $7 a pack. Sweet deal, considering my parent's insurance just dropped me >:C

there's been a really bright star near the moon lately where I live in kansas. it's in the west, about 30 degrees up from the horizon but it's been moving down. is it the international space station?

*edit* question 2: how many google questions do you think we can get to show up on the first page of tqc at the same time?

poop and pets.

two questions:

1. i've always had digestive problems--lots of stomach aches and poo problems. my biggest problem is constipation. i'm not asking you guys for ways to alleviate it, i'm just wondering if you know wtf to call it. here's an example: yesterday i pooped twice. both times were easy (no pushing or anything), but this morning i feel blocked and constipated, despite the fact that i went twice yesterday. it seems like no matter how much i poop, i still feel constipated afterwards. after reading about IBS, my issue doesn't sound like it at all. is it just chronic constipation? does anyone else experience this?

2. this came up in another community i'm in: some members said that while it was okay to keep dogs and cats as pets because they've become domesticated, that keeping rabbits, birds, and reptiles is cruel because they should only be living in the wild. what do you think? do you think it's wrong or cruel to keep, let's say, a rabbit as a pet?

I have had no hearing in my right ear for 6 days now. i went to the dr on wednesday morning and they said I had an ear infection and sinus infection and put me on augmentin for 14 days.

It's been 3 full days of antibiotics (wed, thurs, fri) and there has been no improvement. The office is closed and urgent care/ER is not an option. Should I keep taking the augmentin and go in on monday morning to get something else? Or should I stop taking it since it isn't helping.

My friend was supposed to drive me home from school today to start taking stuff back, and he called me up yesterday about 3 hours after he was supposed to pick me up saying he was too tired and we'd go today. Said we'd leave at 11. Now he texts me and says it's been pushed up til 12, because he's "comfy in bed." I was comfy in bed too, asshole.

update: then he texts me and moves it to 12:30 -- NO, WE'RE LEAVING NOW. THANKS. The fuck, I have work today.

apartment living

I need advice on choosing the floor of an apartment complex to live on:

2nd floor - 8 foot ceilings but no ceiling fans, $10-30 cheaper/month, not as many stairs to go up, you have neighbors above & below you
3rd floor - 9 foot ceilings & installed ceiling fans, having to move in would be a pain in the ass but would be a good workout everytime we had to go upstairs, quieter (I'm somewhat noise sensitive), less opportunity for break-ins through windows

Keep in mind I'm living in North Carolina, so weather (heat/cold) might be a factor. Which would you choose?

Metric measuring cup

I've been trying to bake lately, and all I have is one measuring cup that I found in the cupboard. I assumed that the side that said "flour" then had the amount of grams of flour, and the side that said "sugar" had the amount of grams of sugar, and I don't know what the third side is for.

However, all my recipes are turning out wrong, so can you tell me what the line indicators on this cup actually mean? Or am I right about them measuring grams and I'm just retarded?

I feel like baking something sweet.

1. How would you make the ultimate cupcake? What icing would you use?

2. How would you make the ultimate brownie?

I have an idea on how to make a s'more brownie and I am thinking of creating a batch. But I would like to know how does this sound to you.

First, I would make some homemade marshmallows. But rather that cut them into small bits, I would cut them into sheet blocks. Then I would take a simple chocolate brownie, the same length and width as the marshmallow block and cut it lengthwise. Then I would whip up a chocolate ganache and mix it with crumbled graham crackers. On each brownie, I would ice one side and then place the marshmallow between them like a sandwich. Then I would ice the top again. Viola, s'more brownies.

Do you think this would be too rich? Too chocolaty? How would you change it?
