Backstory: My SO makes absolutely heavenly chicken wings and hot wing sauce. He knows they're my favorite thing he makes. He planned a great evening for us Friday night for my birthday, and has the wings ready and is all prepped to make the sauce. Plus, he has 2 desserts lined up. But he says even though they're my favorite, he doesn't want to serve me only wings on my birthday, so he was trying to come up with something to serve with them but neither of us could come up with anything.

TQC what would taste yummy served with chicken wings when chicken wings are the main course?

would/have your ever tried a ouija board, evp, ghostbox, ect. or will you not touch that shit with a ten-foot pole?
if you wouldn't do it is it because you believe a ouija board is nothing but a board with the alphabet and some numbas or is it more of a "I don't bother dead peoples they don't bother me!" thing.

What are/were your favorite 90s songs? Bonus points if you share a video.

DK/DC/"I was born in the 90s" how do you feel about pretzels? Do you place them at the bottom of the snack hierarchy (WHERE THEY BELONG RIGHT BELOW SUN CHIPS) or do you like them enough to actively seek them out? Soft pretzels are obviously superior and as such are not applicable to this question.

My husband's brother is getting married this month and my husband is a groomsman in the wedding.

I though I'd drive the both of us to the bride's parents house (where they are meeting for food and photos before the wedding), then to the church and reception.

The couple rented some sort of bus to take everyone in. They want us to park our car at the hotel (where the reception is) and drive which his parents, and then take the bus.

But we aren't checking into the hotel until after the ceremony (like, 4pm) and they wan us to park our car at 10am.

My husband is trying to make sure it's ok with the hotel - I don't want my car towed because we're not technically guests yet.

Will the hotel let us do this? Is this normal wedding stuff?

Long story short:

I bought my first iTouch in February 2009. In January 2010 there was a problem with the sound/headphone port. Took it to my local Apple store and they replaced it because it was still in warranty. Two days ago my 'new' iTouch's backlight has stopped working. I have restored the thing twice and have all the updated software. Tomorrow I'm going back to the local store to visit the 'Genius Bar'. I have checked the serial number of my iTouch on the Apple site and it says it's outwith warranty.

What are the chances of getting my iTouch repaired/replaced for free?

If it's going to cost a lot to get this fixed, I was considering investing in a Creative Zen because I heard good things about them. Are you a Creative Zen user? Are they good/bad? Are there any other MP3 players out there you could recommend to me?

DK/DC - Did anyone use minidisc players back in the day? I was at my friend's house yesterday and her boyfriend has hundreds of them. I got one with my first proper paycheck in 2003 and it cost £120 :) Then I sold my soul for a mini ipod.

Our wedding colors are tangerine, bronze, with a little crimson and cornflower blue mixed in. For the background of the invitation I want a swirl of all these colors in a really pretty soft way. Could anybody use a nicer photo editing/graphic design software then I have to create such a pattern for me? Everything that I come up with just sucks and doesn't have the look I want. The invites are 4x6 inches. I am looking for something soft and swirly, like an oil spill in a puddle.

Halp me decide TQC! I had a pair of these Onex wedge slides two summers ago and they were a fabulous compromise of comfort and dressier-than-flip-flops for slopping around in skirts and dresses when it was hot. These are the closest version I can find now - should I get the cute rainbow colourway or the ones with the black stitching?

I am invited to a co-worker's wedding (all of us at work are) and it's on a Saturday and starts at 10am. It is a Catholic ceremony (most like 60-90 min) and the reception is to follow.

TQC, I work at 1 pm. It will take me at least 30 minutes to get from ceremony or reception to work. Should I RSVP yes if I probably won't even be at the reception long enough to eat/drink? Or at all? Should I say no, but write on it that I am coming to the ceremony? Or skip it all?

The RSVP card is due...um...today :/

I have to job shadow at an animal hospital today. I just have to do this for 5 hours to "make sure this really is the field I want to be in". When I talked to the lady from the vet yesterday she said just to wear my "street clothes"... do you suppose jeans and a t-shirt/button up shirt would be good? I feel like that would be dressing down too much... but I'll be dealing with animals and nice clothes seem like "dressing up" too much. I'm undecided.

What would you wear?

Rape related video games VS. Violence related video games


Which of the two do you think should be considered more offensive/worse?

A friend and I were watching the news yesterday and this was televised. He tried to tell me that violence (fighting, shooting, blowing up things) related video games were more offensive and should be taken more seriously than rape related video games.I completely disagreed.. I'm curious to know what your opinions are.

[EDIT] Just wanted to explain why I consider the rape video game to be the more serious of the two. Violence related games are targeted toward hurting people in general, rape related games are targeted toward hurting women. I pretty much agree with everything that this states. And here's a hypothetical scenario to think about: Let's say you're going over your boyfriend's house to surprise him and you walk in his room to find him playing a video game. Which would disturb you more: To see that he was playing a violent game involving shooting aliens or blowing up a cars, or playing a video game involving raping and torturing women?

OMG!

SO.. I just went to brush my teeth and when I finished and went to wipe my mouth with the hand towel I noticed the HUGE GOD DAMN SPIDER I JUST WIPED MY FACE WITH!  Am I less manly for being all WHAT THE FUCK and throwing the towel across the room?

EDIT: OMG people i just had spider trauma, don't make me make sense!

For those who have taken prednisone before, the face bloat/swelling is pretty standard, but have you ever experienced a marked increase in that swelling out of the blue? My face feels like its swelling more than usual today, to the point where its flushed and kind of itchy and people are saying it looks more swollen. I feel lightheaded, too.

Is Easter celebrated as a religious day where you are from?


The reason I'm asking is because I'm seeing a fair bit of wank around LJ about it being celebrated in American public schools. But here in Australia, for the majority of people Easter is just about chocolate & bunnies. I just asked the 5 people sitting around my house if they know what Easter is actually about & none of us know how it ties into religion.

What should I look for at an apartment viewing? Questions I should ask? The lady is very sweet and the apartment is actually part of an old Victorian house. Apparently there's new flooring and appliances and I've actually been inside one of them at a party and it was nice; old but charming. The outside leaves a little to be desired but I'm giving it a chance.

Our landlord, who doesn't live in the same area that we do, came to our house to dig clams on our beach.

Do you think he is going to get really really sick and possibly die from the clams?

When you are on the phone, which ear do you put it to?
If you carry a purse, which arm/shoulder do you carry it on?

Any particular reason...? (Just curious. Don't feel pressured to spill guts if you don't want to.)

I am strictly LEFT for both phone and purse. I absolutely CANNOT deal with a phone or a purse on my right side, and I have to switch to the left IMMEDIATELY if someone hands me a phone or a purse on the right. I figure that it's because I am right-handed, and as such, want to keep the right arm/hand as free as possible...and as far as the phone thing goes, well, I'm losing my hearing in the right ear, so I think that explains that, hah.

And now for something completely different.

I like to do Peep experiments around Easter. This year is the Peeps Test Kitchen. So far, I have bacon-wrapped Peeps, Peep Jell-O, Peep sushi, Peep Krispie Treats, something with peanut butter and Peeps, and...nothing else.

1. Any last-minute suggestions for Peep-related culinary creations?
2. I can't cook the Peep with the bacon because the Peep will melt. I'm thinking of forming a Peeps-sized circle out of the bacon, securing it with a toothpick, and baking it before sliding it on to the Peep. Do you have a better idea?
3. If I bake the bacon, how long should I leave it in for? What temperature?

I heard that if you refuse to answer a question on the Census, you can be fined $100. I didn't think they really NEEDED to know anything beyond how many people live in your household.

I just recently moved into a new apartment with a friend. Friend has a cat. I have nothing against cats, but she remarked several times that it had a habit of going to the bathroom in the wrong place. But, she reassured me that she'd be letting it outside a lot once we got into our new place, and otherwise she'd be keeping it in her room.

So, we've been in new place for about a week now. Friend has changed her mind about letting cat outside, she says there's too many cars around. She hasn't kept it in her room much either. So far, cat has peed on both living room couches twice (furniture is mine, friend doesn't have much furniture), peed on my towels that it pulled down in the bathroom, and left it's other business on the hall rug a few times. In the span of a week.

Friend doesn't always clean it up, sometimes I clean it up. I'm a bit tired of this happening, especially to my stuff. I don't want my friend to get rid of her cat, she loves it a good deal, but something has to be done.

What kind of compromise can my roommate and I come to concerning the cat?

Drinking alone


Why is drinking alone seen like such a bad thing?

I don't drink very much or very often, I don't deliberately hide the fact that I have a drink, I in no way need it.

I don't really think it's safe to drink in clubs etc, only in your own house or a friend/relative's house.  And I'm not some hermit staying in with my beloved booze rather than going out.  I mean, I don't go out loads and loads, but I go out enough, and I have fun, whilst sticking to the cola.  But if I fancy a drink (purely because I enjoy it, same as any other food or drink), chances are it will be when I am in by myself.

I don't want to drink with dinner because I want to concentrate on enjoying dinner.  And if I'm having a drink, I want to concentrate on enjoying my beer/glass of wine/gin and lemonade/whatever.  Personally I think that this means I am likely to drink less.

I do not want to go over board with the amount I drink, and I don't.  In fact I seem to be going the other way, and not drinking when there are loads of distractions to stop me from realising exactly how much I have had.  I personally see a crowd of mates, or a crowd of people like in a club, or dinner, as being those distractions and I expect it to be easy to drink more than you wanted to.

But I am 'having' to hide it because people can't and won't understand this and start blowing things out of proportion and either not believing me or telling me that it's wrong.  Like, drinking by myself is this massive social taboo that should never ever be broken, but they don't really say why.

Why?
