What's wrong with my camera/how can I fix it?
I have a small but varied indoors collection of succulents, tropical plants, regular temperate-climate plants, etc. I have a really hard time keeping track of that stuff, but especially for when I'm going away and have someone else house/plant/cat-sit, I want some sort of system to easily let them know when to water stuff.
I was thinking color-coding but IDK. I want to maybe make those little stakes with info on them for each pot. Any suggestions?
Related questions. Answer whichever strikes your fancy, or make up your own:
If you were a guy who had a mad crush on a girl you're rooming with for the summer, you'd probably wait until you're no longer roommates before trying anything, Y/Y? Not because you aren't interested, but because you are wise?!
Does wisdom in fact dictate that you should not launch into a romantical misadventure with a roommate? Is it better to wait, in a scenario where you have these options?
If you have ever dated a roommate, what advice would you give to others embarking on such a journey? Especially advice concerning the fact that you don't want to get sick of each other since you live together. It's sort of disheartening to want to do something else when this person's around, but if you didn't then OMG YOU WOULD BE TOGETHER ALL THE TIME ACCKKKK. Which seems to spell horrible disaster.
If you have ever postponed showing interest in someone because they were a roommate, how did that work out for you? How did you keep the potential alive while not straying into dangerous / flirtatious / sexy territories?
How convincing is it if I say this has nothing to do with my own personal life?

Anyway, the person there today wasn't someone I'd seen before. A little bit ago, he called someone. I speak almost no Spanish, I can tell you that he called the person "nino" a couple times... Then he kept saying "Siete! Siete, siete!" and then talked about something else, then he said "siete" again. I live in apartment seven.
Should I be creeped the fuck out?
I met a lady online, we clicked, and we met in person. We're meeting in public again for our second date. Everything I've read says to make sure to follow a bunch of safety precautions for the first date, but I haven't found any guidelines for subsequent dates. I felt safe with her, and I could see us possibly wanting to go do something else after dinner tonight. I don't want to be presumptuous and offend her by thinking it's okay to suddenly trust each other, when maybe she doesn't feel ready. At the same time, I don't know how long you're supposed to be super cautious.
(1) Do you think it would probably be safe for us to take one car to another public location? Would you?
(2) Do you think it would probably be safe for us to go to my apartment and hang out? What if my roommate is there?
If the answer is "No" for either of these, then at what point is it okay to let down your guard?
Note: We're both female, in case that matters.
I just popped off a key and there is kitty hair galore in there.

ETA Okay, no muscle relaxer for me... I thought it might allow her to work the muscles deeper, but you guys are probably right that it would be a waste. Feel free to still give me lunch opinions, though.
Edit: To make this more interesting, if you're from the US, did you learn the "Fifty Nifty" song in school, or learn how to recite all 50 states in alphabetical order?

My laptop has crashed a couple times in the past week or so...but only when not plugged in. When I reboot, the battery is only about half used.
I generally keep lappy plugged in, and I know it's good to let the battery run out every now and then (which I do, but probably not as often as I should....).
Does anyone know what this could be caused from? It doesn't ALWAYS happen, and when it does, it's only when unplugged (but again, not always when unplugged).... I keep it pretty clean, as well (blow it out with air about every 2 weeks or so, don't lay it on surfaces where it could over heat, it rarely gets hot, unless I've missed a cleaning, etc). Could I just need a new battery, as I've either exhausted mine from not unplugging it enough, or too often?

She has everything she will ever need- I have vetoed every suggestion everyone else has come up with- apart from giving her makeover.
I know it sounds a bit weird, but she recently got a promotion and should really dress a bit nicer for work. She dresses like someones grandmother. She is only in her 40s! And for awhile people have been buying her books about style and dressing, but it doesn't make any difference.
My idea was to make her a nice breakfast, then sort out her wardrobe- get rid of things that don't fit, she doesn't wear etc, then take her to get a hair cut, new makeup, new clothes and maybe a pair of shoes or 2.
Does that sound like a good idea?
Does it sound like I'm meddling?

For everyone else, how's the weather?
It was hailing and storming like crazy here. I prayed to mother nature to make it stop before I have to drive home. It stopped about 5 minutes ago and I have to leave in 20 minutes, yay.
Perhaps I was not clear, I'm hoping for a recommendation of a book on persuasion that you have read. My apologies.
I have loads of pairs of knickers that are maybe 9 years old and they still function fine. The elastic isn't gone, there are no holes...but...well it seems a mite skanky? But I can't justify throwing stuff away unless there's something wrong with it.

SO COMFY!! I just got a pair today and though I've only worn them for like 10 minutes so far, they are super comfy.
Me: I was listening to a Janet Jackson song and then I started reading ONTD.
Hey, maybe someone has experience with this so I wanted to ask. I've been really tired lately. I'd sleep for 10 hours straight and then when I get up, I'd still be tired. In a couple hours, I'd be ready to go to bed again. If I sleep less, I'm even MORE tired. I used to be a light sleeper, like I was never in the REM state. Now I sleep like the dead, which doesn't work for me, it seems. I feel like someone beat me with a baseball bat.
What do you think of this? Advice?
Also, other stuff started happening, maybe it is connected, maybe not. I've started losing my hair and have been getting heartburn all the time. I started college which required a bit of a change in my lifestyle. I studied way more and one day I slept 4 hours, one day 9, and I commuted 30 miles to lectures at 7:30 AM. I don't see any drastic food differences. I did eat more cafeteria food, but I still had healthy food.

As much as I (claim I) hate Hollywood, almost every major decision I've made has been based on a movie or a TV series or a celebrity. I went to my first university because one of my favorite actresses went there. I chose where to study abroad because of a film director I liked. I'm going on vacation to somewhere because one of my favorite singers is from there. I wanted to go to Prague solely because of The Unbearable Lightness of Being (okay, that's literature, so I guess slightly better).
Well, it's not so much I do it *solely* because of those things, I'm just heavily influenced by them.

The thing is, he's also going to be paying for our hotel when we travel together, and paying for all the restaurants where we eat, and probably will end up buying me clothes or food.
Is it strange that I'd begin paying him back on a loan while simultaneously expecting him to treat me to a bunch of stuff?
(for the record, my mom has told me that I don't have to pay him back and I don't think he expects I'm actually going to pay him back in full, but I am)
Also, more TL;DR but due to the fact that I need to close down my bank account I'm going to end up with a hell of a lot of cash soon (all of my final paycheck I'll have to cash out, and my entire apartment deposit will be given back to me in cash) and it would be beneficial of me to get rid of some of it so I don't lose it, blah blah blah, otherwise I would just pay him back in a couple of months.
I'm being cheap and making my own "That Guy" card game. Basically I'm going to pass out cards to each girl, and each card will have a type of guy that she will have to find and take a picture with. I'm having trouble thinking of different guys though.
