I just got invited to my friend's birthday. I haven't known him very long, only for a few months, but I work with and talk to him everyday (I'm an art student). I am panicking slightly because I'm not sure what to get him, or what other people will be doing. I don't have much/any experience with birthdays, except for another friend's small gathering, which was convenient because we ended up in his girlfriend's car outside his house, so it wasn't awkward regarding him having nowhere to keep the gift whilst we were "partying".
shorter version: tqc, I am inexperienced at life. What is the etiquette for birthday gatherings? Do people typically give the host gifts on the day of the gathering?* How well/long do you have to have known the person to be expected to buy them something?
* Because where would they put the gift if we were clubbing, etc
I need to get a horrible smell out of my room! My cat peed on the carpet and the smell was overwhelming. I read that I could neutralize the smell with vinegar, so I poured vinegar on the cat pee stain. It's been two or three days, window open, fan on, and now my room just smells like piss and vinegar. :(
How do I fix this nastiness!?
Can I get "HAJIOMATIC" on my passport?
If you could pick any date for your birthday, what would you chose? Feel free to share your current birthday as well, if you want.
Inspired by the post below, if you wear sunblock or sunscreen on a regular basis, what kind do you use? Can you recommend something that doesn't feel greasy and awful on your skin?
I'm looking for something specifically for my face. I know a lot of you use makeup with an SPF but as I only ever wear a little eyeliner and some chap-stick, that's not really something that would work for me, so I'm thinking more along the lines of a cream or lotion.
I've tried the oil free sun blocks, but they make my skin feel weird and tight, or grimy.
You know how old people just have that old people voice? how does that happen? does voice age?
Do you think there a "top" and "bottom" part to an egg? I think so but my fiance says no >:(
I'm filling in a lot of job applications today, and my brain is starting to get a little fried with the repetitiveness of it all. I'm applying for a sales assistants role in Pets At Home and what of the questions is, "If you were to describe yourself as a pet, what would you be and why?"
How on earth do I answer that? I really, really need to get this job so I want to answer with whatever it is they would be looking for.
What kind of pet would YOU be and why?
were you required to learn a second language in school, and if so, what language and at what grade level?

What is your first impression of pole fitness?
Have you ever tried pole fitness?
Did you like it?
Do you have a pole at home? If so, tell me all about it!
I started taking pole fitness classes in October, and fell in love with it. I quit my gym and I love going to the classes, unlike the gym which I detested. I'm considering getting a pole in my guest bedroom, but need more info/opinions first.
Have you ever done any DIY home decor projects? How did it go? Do you have pics of the results?
I'm thinking of buying a big canvas and maybe creating a geometric pattern on it in gold paint, maybe chevron or something with triangles. I can't afford any actual art right now and I have some blank walls that need something.
If you choose to study/do homework somewhere other than your home...where do you like to go?

Soo... Long piercing question:
I've had my nipples pierced since Oct-2009. Originally the guy used titanium but the bars were comically too small, so I swapped them out with PTFE bars and titanium balls. They've healed pretty well and I haven't had any major problems. I just changed them to 7/16" niobium
d-CRRs D-shaped-CBRs last night and now my breasts hurt. Less like PMS sore and more like in the area behind my areola, and more in the deeper left one than the right. I don't think I'm allergic to niobium because I have it in other piercings but I'm having surgery in the next year and I don't want to be massively damaging my skin (I'm a slow healer). Should I suck it up and leave them to do their adjustment thing or should I put in new PTFE?
Dk/Dc: what do you have pierced?

Should I spend the cash and get my WoW account back? I've not played my characters in a long time, right before Lich King came out and I'm having some serious WoW aches. I'd need to get the expansions and pretty much relearn a lot. I'm not working right now, I'm in school 2-3 days a week depending on the quarter and living at home.
