I've noticed lately that my eyesight isn't what it used to be, so I'm going to get an eye exam.

If I end up needing glasses I'd like a good deal on them, so where should I go for a deal?
I've looked at ads and things, but I'm looking for firsthand experience with companies here.

I've never done this before, because my vision has always been fine. What should I expect when I go get the exam?
I'm kinda nervous.

If you have classic Uggs, do you prefer short or tall? I found a blue pair that I like (they are perfect for fall/winter in the mountains), but I'm not sure the shorts will be okay for tucking in jeans. Are they?

I have a set of blocks that feature the alphabet in standard letters, ASL, and Braille. I think they are very neat looking and want to display them.

Factors: I cannot drill or otherwise put holes in the walls. I have a bit of shelf-space, but not a lot. They are normal-sized A-B-C blocks.

What shall I do with them, all-knowing TQC?

Also: I have dry skin on half of my upper lip and no chapstick has helped yet. What can I do?

Sorry to keep banging on about this, but I have a job interview today for a fashion store and I have to give a presentation to answer two questions: what is unique about me and what role I'm best suited for. I've made a little cartoon version of myself wearing a vest and underwear, and basically decided to dress little me up, and as I did, the clothes I chose to dress myself up in also represent qualities about myself that I think are unique.

For example, I have a "goes with anything" jacket, to represent my ability to adapt to any situation, as well as get on with anyone and anything no matter what the situation. Anyway, you get the picture.

What can I do for shoes? Sensible Shoes? Idk.

 As you got older, what things made you realize you were 'growing up', or really entering adulthood?

For me, it's watching people my age having babies, opening businesses, and even dying in car crashes and things. Also, as I get older, I notice people my age becoming more interested in interior design, idk.

Australia...

Is there anyone in this community from Australia or who has lived in Australia or went on holidays in Australia in the last few years? 

I am really strongly considering going on exchange to Australia in my 3rd year (so I will be applying for a place through my Uni in about October this year) and I want to really research it so I can figure out if I really can do it financially and socially. 

So here are my 3 choices : 

1. University of Melbourne
2. University of New South Wales
3. University of Queensland. 

I am studying social work at the moment so would any of you know if any of these 3 Uni's are especially renowned in the humanities or are they all about equal? 

More importantly if I do end up in Australia I want to be somewhere that is a good base for further travelling so which of these would be best of that? I'm leaning towards NSW but then I have heard Melbourne is like the education capital of Australia or something like that. Thoughts? 


Now accommodation....
I am hoping I am reading it wrong but is on campus accomm really THAT expensive? I was a bit shocked. Most of them were like over ten grand (in euros) for the year? So like 15000-17000 Australian Dollars? Please tell me this is a horrendous typo :( 

Also I presume on - campus accommodation is done by semester and not by the year so I could still be homeless for like 3 months? Ah!

So, baring that in mind how horribly stressful and expensive is it to rent in the 3 areas? This is the main thing that is making me nervous about the whole thing. At the moment I am paying about 5 thousand euros for my house for the year. How much roughly would most students expect to be dishing out on private rentals for say a 10 month to 12 month lease? And how hard is it to find affordable housing. I know how stressful house hunting is and doing it from Ireland before I go out sounds like a nightmare!!

Anyone ever just shared with randomers in any of these 3 Uni's? Thoughts?

Hope this is making sense.

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me! :)

I just paid for a month of unlimited downloads for Megashares (mainly because dl-ing for free kept interfering with one certain movie I was trying to obtian). I now want to put my $9.95 to good use:

Can you give me good movie recommendations? (Alternatively, if this has been asked recently, link me to that post?)

Danke!

Suppose you attend a gaming convention (like, Gen Con) for the weekend. You get hit on "constantly." How would this make you feel?

Say you could pick what to put in a capsule to send to a planet with extra-terrestrial life and your goal was to communicate what being a human on Earth was like. You can have any 5 things you like. A simulated taste of any dish or food, any simulated smell, any piece of music, any book, any movie, any television show, any picture or video of a news event, any voice recording of someone speaking, any small non-perishable item like a toy, a blanket, a piece of clothing, etc. You can pick any five things you like to communicate to this alien what you think it is to be a human. What 5 things would you pick?

Plan my honeymoon.

TQC, my husband and I didn't get a honeymoon when we married last year. My life was too busy and I went back to school 2 days after we wed.

Our one year anniversary is on a holiday weekend. What is a nice, 3 day minivacation we could do?

Bonus points if it can be done near Louisville.

Wine drinkers: do you always make sure your wine matches what you're eating? (I'm having a glass of white zin with a baked apple pie, and I'm not sure it's a good pairing, but I don't care.)

Don't drink...wine: When's the last time you were watching a TV show or movie and said "Hey, it's (That Guy)"? I'm watching an episode of M*A*S*H with Patrick Swayze. (His character gets diagnosed with cancer. Awkward.)

When is the last time you embarrassed yourself publicly?

--

I woke up at like 2 am this morning and went number 1, when I wiped there was blood so I freaked the fuck out thinking I was miscarrying and called my hubby to take me to the ER...spent 6 hours trying to figure out what was going on and the re-examined my lady bits only to discover the blood was coming from my ass courtesy of pregnancy related hemorrhoids that for some reason were not causing me any discomfort or anything....yay...

Seriously...so embarrassed I cried.

1. Do you know of any good comms where I can ask Question #2?

2. I have an 03 Chevy Malibu who is trusty and true. However, all of the meters on the dash have been dimmer than usual. All of the other lights (turn signals and such) have been at their usual brightness. Did I accidentally touch something? What's going on? And... if it is in need of repair, how much will it cost?

3. And I will continue to be naive about cars. How much will it cost to get 2 15" tires changed and the rest rotated? Hmm?

My boyfriend has been trying to convince me that the Illuminati has found its way into music and almost every music star is under its "spell." They supposedly worship the devil, sold their soul and have made blood sacrifices for success. I've been reading a website about symbolism and the occult in the music industry and I am so intrigued by it, but I don't know if I want to believe it. It seems so blatantly obvious though. I also feel that it's sort of like, if you go looking for something, you'll find it.

Do you believe the hype?

Depending on your time zone, what did you have for breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
