"Leeches should not be applied to the pregnant womb, without its being plugged with cotton wool, for their taking inside the cervix would most likely bring on abortion. A friend of mine applied six leeches to a patient who was suffering severely from extensive inflammntion in the fourth month of her pregnancy. Only four of the six leeches were accounted for, and as the other two could not be recovered by the finger or by injections, it is almost certain that they bit inside the cervix; for the pain of their application did not subside until abortion had taken place on the following day."
What is the last thing that made you go NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE?
What is something bizarre that happens to you/has happened to you?
The first time it happened to me I thought a semi truck crashed into my room and couldn't fall back asleep.
I've started to get song loops in my head that stop me from falling asleep, no matter how hard I try.
What should I do with these pages?
I already own a separate address book.
Should I feel guilty? I don't mind if he leaves his cloths on the bedroom floor, but I feel like we should keep our mess in our bedroom. We don't share a bathroom, but it can be seen from the hallway. Am I being unreasonable?
I lost all my Monty Python LPs.
Have you tried the oatmeal cranberry dunkers from Trader Joe's? What's your favorite TJ's product?
note: I can see them on the iGoogle gmail app but not in gmail itself.
It seems like winter already in Michigan. No snow, but it's so cold, and most of the leaves are gone. :(
What is your opinion of businesses being open on holidays? How would you feel about working on a holiday? Assume you get extra pay, but would miss holiday festivities with your family/friends.
I think it is helpful for some businesses to be open on holidays. Not everyone celebrates, and many people who do forget last minute things. I've worked at a place that is open 24/7/365 for five years now. It sucks somewhat, but I've learned to plan around it.
Where are you?
My stepdad (stroke) and grandma (Alzheimer's) are in nursing homes, and whenever the news 'exposes' a nursing home, it makes my mom irate. I think they may be stirring the pot, because the homes Dad and Grandma are in are quite clean.
In your own words, why do you think death of loved ones tends to be so hard for us to deal with?
Ok so I'm trying to print out SINGLE pre-made address labels. How in the world do you do it when there are various labels that have already been removed from the page? How do you know which label it's going to print on?

I need some Tv and movie suggestions pronto!!
I spend about an hour and a half to two hours in front of the computer without the use of my hands 5-8 times a day pumping and feeding my baby and Im running out of stuff to watch while doing so.
I love shows and movies like Arrested Development, Up All Night, Modern Family, Suburgatory,Dance Moms,Dexter,House, horror/gore, comedy movies...etc.
I also love well done documentaries.
Soooo, What should I watch?
dk/dc: Whats the last good movie you watched?
I swear to god if any of you bitches say "Breaking Dawn" I will cut you.
I saw my dad for the first time in nearly a year. He said, "I miss you, I miss when we used to go for walks and talked." I'm still trying not to cry. I miss my dad.
( Collapse )
Also, would you show me your pets and tell me their names?
what should i do when i freeze up?
(after you draw the cat, click "file" -> "save online" and you can just post it straight from the CanvasPaint site!)
DK/DC: What do you think about job recruiters? Are they legit? I've been contacted by two of them in the past day and I'm on the fence as to how I feel about them.
Should I have eggs on toast, or oatmeal with dates?
i went for a massage and the therapist made me fill out a information sheet, pretty basic stuff. however, does this mean she can gain access to my medical records with that info, or does she have to ask permission from me directly? (i live in ontario, canada, if that makes a difference) i called public health, and they really didnt have much info to give me.
im just a paro case about this kind of stuff.
or none? :x

Does anyone know of any other quick dessert recipes I could try? I have basic baking supplies (flour, sugar, brown sugar, butter, baking soda, baking powder, eggs, milk, cocoa) and several spices and extracts, and I might be able to swipe some mini marshmallows from my roommates if I ask nicely. I can't go to the store because I have no money, or else I'd just buy a box of cake mix and make that.
We're all going to a Cirque show, Mystere. Really wanted to see Love instead but it's dark that week. Also seeing a comedian on Fremont Street.
What do you do in Vegas when you are a super low roller and not all that into the clubs?
Can you aim me at some really low key bars (In a hotel or otherwise) or great places to eat that are more local faves? Which buffet is your favorite?
What do you do in Vegas?
'cause it's bothering me :(
- Do you give charity gifts during the holidays?
- Is there a charity you give during the holidays every year?
I got this. It says for ages 3+. Is it too baby-ish? Should I take it back and look for something else? When you think of play kitchen set what do you think of?
Do you prefer that people answer the phone with the traditional questioning "Hello?" or does that seem weird to you? Does it bother you when they answer the phone with a "Hey (insert name!"? Do you feel insulted when a close friend or family member answers like they don't know it's you?
Was just thinking about this because I find myself doing both, even with the same person, and I wonder if it bothers people either way. I've always had very good phone manners, but caller ID just changes the game. My mom does the same thing when I call; even though I am the only person in the 510 area code that would ever call her, half the time she answers like she doesn't know it's me. I don't really care either way, but the familiarity vs. the general greeting sometimes throws me.
Is this funny to you?
No? Well..why the hell not?
Perhaps if you saw a picture of my dad you'd understand better?
Alright fine. Is the picture under the cut funny to you?

So, this post starts off on a kinda sad note: my cousin and his wife found out a couple days ago that their daughter (due in February) has Down Syndrome and some pretty serious cardiac problems (which might necessitate open-heart surgery at 4-6 weeks after birth). From what we know, there's basically no family history for this, so its been pretty tough for the family. The pregnancy is going well in all other respects. They already have two daughters (ages 4 and 1) and they're obviously going to try and prepare the two of them (mainly the 4 year old, obviously) for the arrival of the baby, and were wondering if anyone knew about any good books appropriate for 4-year-olds about Down Syndrome. Any suggestions? Thanks, and if you want to keep the family in your prayers, that's awesome too.
mine's about four years old and still kicking and i'm wondering how much longer it's likely to survive.
Have you ever done it?
e.g. Some of my friends, who were wearing Lolita fashion, went to the mall and a girl loudly complained "I hate it when white people wear Asian fashion." Like wtf how do you respond to that? What's the comeback?

What is the online dating model? I've just started talking to someone I met through a friend on Facebook. We texted, now we're phone talking... is the next step a real live date?
I'm new to all this, please advise : )
I accidentally burned the side of my right arm closest to my body on the oven door while baking cookies earlier- there's a white welt going right through the middle and it's a couple inches in diameter. D:
DK/DC: How often do you cook meals from other countries (i.e. German, Italian, French, etc)? What have you made? Success or failure?
I've made wiener schnitzel, green bean salad, and Black Forest cake for a meal before- tomorrow night I'm making coddle!
this is so vague i know.
Do you think Christopher Walken helped him cover it up?
I'm not terribly impressed so far. It just seems TOO open.. I want some direction.
it's for an inside joke.
There's a boy I like, but I got frustrated with him last night because I don't know what's going on between us and told him when drunk that he probably shouldn't text me anymore. He never responded. Its probably for the best that I just leave it at that. But I really just want to text him and tell him sorry, but we don't know each other that well and I probably just messed up the entire situation.
DK/DC...what's the worst drunk text you've ever sent?
For me, it's definitely this.
Are you planning on buying anything of Black Friday?
Possibly a sewing machine or a food processor or a set of Pyrex... I don't know. I can't afford them all and I don't know that I want to brave the madness that is retail on Black Friday.
Totally not serious answers 100% welcome.
The latke link is broken. It is here.
How often do you go to the grocery store?
