The oven is somehow stuck in some "Sabbath" mode and it won't do anything no matter what I do. It is wall-mounted, doesn't have a hard power switch that I can see, and I don't know which breaker goes to the kitchen. HOW DO I FIX THIS??? I NEED TO COOK THINGS.
Yesterday I was stranded alone in central London (where I've never been before, ever) with a 157 mile journey home to look forward to. Somewhere around my 140th mile I was whisked off a train by a complete stranger who bought me a drink, treated me like a princess and dropped me at my front door in his fancy sports car.
When was the last time your completely shitty day got turned around and became wonderful? Or vice versa?
The way in which I talk to my cat, Destin, has devolved such that instead of the times I'd call him "kitty cat" I'll call him "titty tat", as if it were due to some sort of speech impediment, and then it's been shortened to just "titty". So, yeah, I now call my cat "Titty".
1-2 here. I know that's pretty bad. I find it really hard to fit in a 3rd meal because I am broke, but also because I don't like breakfast, nor do I usually have an appetite in the morning. Sometimes I snack all day with no meals. :/
Does anyone know of a (preferably free, but it doesn't have to be) iPhone app that lets you use pictures already in your photo albums to make a photobooth strip? All the ones I can find make you take the pictures as you're going, or they only work with iOS 4 and I have a 3GS.

Guy is know is being driven slowly insane by this. Anyone recognise his admittedly poor description of this film or can point me in a direction of a comm or site where someone might know it?
"I think it was an American film, and I remember it being very surreal, and revolving around a little girl, and a group of friends she collected in a fantastic world. It wasn't Wizard of Oz, though it may have been some bizarre retelling of it. I remember one of the "friends" she ended up with being something like an American Civil War soldier or cowboy - something of that era. I also remember a grim reaper or something similar."
It was not the recent TV retelling of Oz, but earlier, from the 90's.
Do typically you prefer male or female bartenders?
What is your gender?
How old are you?
Further comments on the matter?
I am a restaurant manager (sports restaurant/bar setting) and we have three awesome male bartenders whom all of our clientele loves. One of these guys is newer and doesn't get as many shifts, but we are losing one of our female bartenders. When I mentioned replacing her shifts with him, my two bosses said they would rather find a girl to do it b/c we have to many guys behind the bar. I think this is an outdated notion, but maybe I am wrong so I want to know what TQC thinks!
I'd also like to mention that I am not against female bartenders! The girl we are losing as a bartender is getting promoted to manager b/c she's awesome. I just personally think it doesn't matter.
I just made some homemade tomatillo sauce. I cannot figure out how long it will stay good for. Google isn't pulling through, or maybe I'm just being dumb. I know mexican restaurants keep it out on tables for long periods but since this kind is fresh and has no preservatives, I am not sure. The only ingredients are: tomatillos, lime juice, sugar, cilantro, jalepeno, and a serrano pepper.
TQC, do you know about how long this might stay good?
Do you make your own salsas frequently? If so, care to share a recipe?
tqc, I'm applying to a lot of jobs. My formal name is Kathleen but I go by Katie. On my resume and cover letter my name is listed as Kathleen of course. But my email address is katie.lastname with my name is listed as, of course, Katie Lastname. And my email signature says Kathleen. So...they'll get a resume from Kathleen sent by Katie. Is this throwing people off? Should I get another email address called kathleen.lastname? How do you handle this kind of thing?
eta: ok I feel kind of silly for asking that now. I'm a little neurotic..
