What is your favorite brand of women's work/office-appropriate pants? Is INC a good brand? I'm looking for stretchy pants that are under $50/pair. I seriously need to start dressing snappy for work before I get fired and I have pretty much no office-safe clothes whatsoever, and my bizarre body shape means a stretchy waistband is necessary.
My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to D.C. We have been there once before and went to Arlington Cemetery, Air and Space Museum, Lincoln Memorial, and umm, I think that's it. What would you recommend we do or where we should eat? We're going to check out the zoo and a couple museums and maybe a mall. We will be going over a weekend so we'll have at least 2 days to do stuff.
Do any of you hate the color/quality of LED lights, like I do?
I understand that they're amazing energy-saving little things, but my mom decorates her whole apartment in LED string lights during the holidays, and I find the light so cold/impersonal that it makes me uncomfortable. I find it affects my mood.
TQC, my dad and I are switching to AT&T for cell phone service this week. I don't really want a smart phone but there are pretty convenient things about it (I really like the Siri aspect of the iPhone 4S, but I probably wouldn't really use the data aspect much other than that). If you have AT&T, how much do you pay per month and what phone do you have?
I am a grad student looking for a credit card. I just want one so that I can charge a little bit a month, pay it off at the end of the month, and build credit, so there's no need for one with a huge limit or a lot of stuff like that. I'm just looking for a basic, no frills, low-interest credit card. What would you suggest, TQC?
Can you recommend any books with main characters that have a hidden identity of some sort? So that it effects how the person acts. From things like personal secrets to legal secrets, or things that are fantasy/sci-fi related.
Brownie points if anyone knows of a book that involves time travel or something of the sort, where main character keeps their origin a secret?
Does anyone have any experience of Color Oops or something similar? How much damage does it cause? I went black a couple of days ago and I miss my gingery hair. ETA: I'm not bothered about what colour it turns my hair as i'll dye over it anyway, I just want to know if it'll fry my hair as bad as bleach.
I was given a $50 Starbucks gift card for Christmas. I spent about $6 of it on our trip home but now I have no idea what I should do with the remainder. We have two Starbucks nearby but I rarely visit those areas. One is in a hospital where I would have to pay to park and the other is in a shopping mall where, again, I would have to pay to park. It kind of defeats the purpose of a gift card.
TL;DR What would you do with a $50 Starbucks card if you did not have any stores in your area?
hi! i have googled for a while but i cant find what im looking for. quite a few years ago, i remember reading a novel about a young girl who was seen as the ugly duckling but as she ages she becomes gorgeous and then there is a huge twist where she ends up murdering her partner possibly? i remember her character being very manipulative and lovestruck. pretty sure the book cover was quite dark with eyes on the front.
does anybody know what book i am talking about?
dk/dc: are you reading anything right now? wanna share?
