What's the weirdest drink combo you've had?
My husband was drinking ouzo mixed with cherry limeade; I was surprised to discover it was not bad.
Once in high school I remember having Jack and Slice.
How should I get over my boyfriend, who I just dumped? He is an idiot, but I still love him.
Will you tell me your break-up story?
what things do you try to buy cheap?
what things are you willing to spend more money on?
When someone says "Just a moment", how long do you expect it to take for an answer / whatever you requested?
Does anyone else think the Nook and Kindle are kind of redundant? I mean, you pay $150.00-$250.00 for the ability to READ BOOKS. Books are already convenient and portable. It's not like an iPod or a portable DVD player where you are doing something you couldn't normally do. On top of the $$$$ you pay for this new technology, you still have to pay for books. You could have bought lots and lots of books for all that money.
Is it neat? Sure, I guess. But I don't understand why people are so crazy about them. I remember watching Star Trek TNG back in they day and they had tablets and I was like wow someday we will really do that. Now that we do.. Meh. Seems like a complete waste of money.

Do you use an electric razor or hand razor?

What are your favorite 90's sitcoms?
I'm watching my default late night channel, HGTV, and as usual all the women are clamoring for huge closets. This baffles me. What is your number one criteria in an apartment/house?
How do I learn more about fashion? Recommend me some blogs or lj communities or something. I like looking at pretty clothes, but I feel like I don't really know shit about *fashion* other than a working knowledge of fashion-related things that appear in popular media.
I can dress myself just fine and all, but I'm moving to NYC in a few months and many of the jobs in my field (marketing/business) are in the fashion industry. I'd like to tell interviewers I am "knowledgeable about fashion" without feeling like I'm bullshitting them too much. Also I just want to know more about that stuff for personal reasons... I'll be in freakin NYC, after all
Hypothetical situation: You like cherry pie. So do two other members of your family. You're all eating one kept in the fridge (taking a slice here and there over a few days) and it gets down to the last slice. Are you the kind of person to leave it incase someone else wants it, or the kind of person to just take it, no one else claimed it?
How easily distracted are you? Share some stories to make me feel better?
I'm at a hotel a decided to run myself a bath. The internet distracted me and next thing I know the bath's overflowing and there's water fucking everywhere. The bathmat's soaked, my clothes that were on the bathroom floor are soaked, even a bit of the carpet around the doorway is soaked. Urgh.
Do you get tiny mysterious holes in your clothes sometimes, mostly at the bottom of shirts?
What causes this???
dk/dc: Will you post a picture of your favorite or most fabulous piece of clothing?
I'm substituting evaporated milk for sweetened condensed milk, and I need to know how much sugar to add to it.
If 1 cup of evap. milk gets 1 1/4 cups sugar, how much sugar does 1 1/2 cups of evap. milk get? My brain is fried from baking all night/morning and I can't figure this out.
Why are red butts yellow?

What's the most expensive present you've ever bought for someone? How much was it?

According to the UPS website, my package arrived in my city at 5:37am today. How likely is it that it will actually be delivered to me today?
What's the best place to have pictures printed in 1 day? I need to print out some 4x6 digital photos for a Christmas present for my mom.
I've tried Walgreens and their quality sucked. Any other suggestions? Price isn't really an issue as long as I can get some quality prints done by this afternoon or tomorrow morning.
There's this girl I want to buy a gift for. I wanted to get her a magazine subscription but I only have the slightest clue which one to get her. I know that she likes make-up and fashion, but I also know that that does not narrow the field down much. Still, any ideas?
I put up some new curtains/rods a few months back, and the curtains were quite heavy and started to drag on the fixtures. Because of where they need to be, I can't go into a stud perfectly, so I bought some mollies to hopefully give them a little more grip. However, before I could get to the fix, one of the rods just fell down, broke all the finials and pulled some spots of drywall out. They are small enough to fix with spackle BUT my question is... I need to put the curtain fixtures back up in the exact same place - if I spackle and whatnot, but go into the same spots again, is it going to hold?
Any advice much appreciated. My curtain rods look like Tim Burton put them up and I want to fix the others that didn't esplode yet, today.
Background: There's heavy snow outside that started a few hours ago. It is 21F/-6C. The traffic is really slowing down. I live walking distance from three supermarkets and need to pick up some basics.
1. When I go to the store what do you think I'll find? Will it look like the super duper mart in Fallout 3 with hardly anything there except maybe mirelurks and wastelanders? Or will it be fully stocked?
2. What Christmas song is do you find so annoying that you want to stab someone whenever you hear it?
3. If you didn't get anything for holiday gifts (due to money problems) and someone asked you what you got, would you make something up, tell the truth, or just say something vague?
4. How would you find out for sure that someone was romantically interested in you besides asking them straight out or doing something physical?
Serious and non-serious answers welcomed.
Why does my friend hate presents? He's structured his life so that not even his closest friends know when his birthday is (though we have narrowed down the month but he still denies it), and he's told us all several times not to get him anything for xmas (i still did because i'm a dick).
TQC, will you show me your tattoos? Or a tattoo you want. Or a tattoo you like on someone else, whatever.
I finally decided on a design for myself, I just have to find a good parlor/artist. :)
I need a good cry, TQC. Will you comment with something that makes you cry?
I've been using Rhapsody for years to get my music. $15 a month and I have unlimited access to thousands of albums. Only problem is, the program pretty much sucks. It crashes all the time and is a complete hog. Does anyone know of something similar I'd be able to switch to? I don't want to pay per song, but a flat monthly fee is perfect. Oh, and one of the perks to Rhapsody is it lets me transfer the music to my MP3 player (which is not an Ipod), so I'd love it if there's something else that does that too. Thanks!

People who are members of "specialized" comms (narrow focus, specific demographic, esoteric subject, whichever):
Have you ever had a non-member come in and post? And it was clear that they just Did Not Understand something about the members, the comm's subject, the comm itself? Did said non-member simply go away eventually?
Or was there drama?
Is it worse to forget or to remember[edit - forgot, lol], and why[/edit]?
Tqc will you help me decide what to do?
Last night, I randomly started hurting on my lower left side. Its really uncomfortable and still hurts today, about 16 hours later. It might actually be a little worse. Its a constant pain, and is I guess in between sharp and dull? My first thought was maybe an ovarian cyst or maybe one that had ruptured, but I have no clue. I don't have a fever, at least.
Anyone had that kind of pain?
Since its Saturday, I can't go to the gyno or even my regular doctor. If I go anywhere, its urgent care or the hospital er. The ER costs a $75 copay, which is pretty much all the money I have. there will also be a long wait-last time I waited for 8 hours total. The urgent care place would be probably a 2 or 3 hour wait, but they don't have any equipment like an ultrasound, ct, etc. Its also only $20.
I can also go home and take a vicodin and hope I don't have anything life threatening, and contact my gyno on Monday.
What doi do? :(
I'm getting a really nice sewing machine for Christmas. I have a few questions.

3. Do you have a sewing machine? What do you like to make with it?

I just coughed up some phlegm, and it had a reddish brown blob in it. Besides being utterly gross, this could be caused by dehydration, right? Maybe if I drink lots of water/gatorade, it won't happen again? I'm gonna die, aren't I?
dk/dc/you're gross: What do you want for Christmas?
Do you like the show Arrested Development? If not, why the hell not?
If you celebrate Christmas, do you tell strangers "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays"?
My boss teaches a little Sunday school class and today she was ranting about people saying "Happy Holidays" and how they're "taking the Christ out of Christmas"... She's teaching the children that if anyone tells them "Happy Holidays" they're supposed to say "NO, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!" It took everything I had not to say "it's not about taking the Christ out of Christmas, it's about not being a douche and assuming everyone on the planet celebrates the same holidays you do."
look at your netflix dvd queue. what dvd is number:

Any advice you'd like to pass on? (AKA how do I get better, and fast?)
Is there anything good on TV/Netflix I can watch?
Thanks for keeping me company.

'cause i just yelled at my sister for opening cards from our aunt and grandma, but then it occurred to me maybe it's just presents you don't open early.
What percentage of the time is your cellphone on silent/vibrate?
How often do you forget to turn the ringer back on?
My SO and I had this weekend off, but he's going away tonight for something or other.
What can I do on my own instead?
If you've moved away from your hometown, how do you deal with seeing people you grew up with but never spoke to when you go to visit? Do you say awkward "hey!"s and pretend to care about what they're up to now, even though you've never spoken previously, or ignore them?
Inspired by the awkward 20 mins at the bagel shop this morning, wherein there was a group of people I went to high school with but never had any association with... I recognized them and I could tell they recognized me but we didn't say anything to each other. lol.
Will you help me put together a list of things I should have/own when I get my own apartment?
Besides a plunger and a can opener. Those are #1 and #2 on my list.
My 26-year-old roommate is throwing a full-out temper tantrum over text message right now because I asked him not to let his girlfriend do laundry here without talking to me and our other roommate first. How do I respond to this manchild?
eta: The laundry thing I'm okay with now that I know it's just a one-time thing. But he keeps texting me with ridiculous shit like "Should we not cook because it'll drive up the gas bill? Should we not shower because it uses water?" It's like 3-page rants every time.
srs/nonsrs/funny gifs to calm me down would all be appreciated.

The garage in my home is drywalled but not painted. Apparently this is common for new construction, but I would like to have the garage painted. I have gotten quotes from a few local painters, and they are a lot higher than I expected. I don't know if I have unrealistic expectations or if they are trying to rip me off. They are saying they will need 2 or 3 coats of paint on the bare drywall.
My question is: how much do you think it should cost to paint the interior walls and ceiling of a smallish 2-car garage? The dimensions are 19'5" x 18'11" with walls about 10' high. I live in a suburb of the Cleveland area if it matters. I am just interested in your best guess off the top of your head even if you have no knowledge of painting costs.

What do you think of the hoody-footy snuggle suit?
My wife hates them and thinks that they are the lease sexy thing ever (there was a commercial on tv for the Sweet & sexy combo of the snuggle suit and lingerie), that they are effectively baby sleepers and that they are as sexy as adult diapers.
*Edit* the commercial we saw
P.S. what the guy says makes it all the more creepy (at the 39 second mark)

The dude who was supposed to come over to my place and hang out tonight just bailed on me because he has work in the morning (so do I; it's only 8pm here), and he's already hanging out with someone else. Even though I asked him at the beginning of the week.
Fuck him. I'm going to cook up a casserole anyway and watch John Carpenter movies like a boss.

i remember seeing at work (a magazine) a product that came in made by a condom manufacturer that's a small vibrator and it has like 4 different tips, but I'm relatively sure it's not out yet because I can't find it with google.
SO! what do you recommend? what do you use? i want to get her something small, because while the rabbit is magical, it is huge. links to soap.com or drugstore.com are appreciated.

I'm going to clean my room some more. Should I listen to podfic or my Jurassic Park audio book? I found earlier that listening to a story made me feel a little better about cleaning than music did, since I wasn't wasting time that could be spent reading.
