Head Shop

I totally perplexed a friend of my own age by mentioning a head shop. I thought it was universally understood, but maybe it is a regionalism.

Do you know what a head shop is? Are there more modern names for it?

1. Are you doing anything exciting today?

2. I ordered some small paint samples to be matched. Then I got home and the bf ended up vetoing the painting we discussed. I was told the paint would be ready at 11. I call at 8am to cancel the order but they already made it. Do I have to go pick them up? I haven't paid for them.

3. Do you meal plan? I try to, but it usually takes me an hour-ish and sometimes I just don't feel like it!

I have a coworker, we'll call her Jan.

Jan doesn't have a car and takes the bus to and from work. It drops her off right across the street from work as well as her house.

I drive to work, and Jan asks me for rides home constantly. The problem is, I am exhausted at the end of the day and it's an extra 20-25 minutes out of my way on a route I don't like. It takes her the same amount of time to take the bus home. And I lose my parking spot by the time I arrive to my home.

What would you do/say in my situation?

I was meant to be starting work on Thursday. 
I got a phone call from the company yesterday saying they now don't want me to start till the 21st. 
What should I do with myself in those two weeks? I have little to no money.

You're driving on a long road trip with your SO. While driving through a lonely, deserted area, you notice a big, buff hitchhiker with a handlebar moustache. You're about to say 'how creepy' when your SO, who was driving, pulls the car over. 'WHAT'RE YOU DOING??' 'That guy looks a lot like Hulk Hogan. What if it is? That'll be some story'. Before you have a chance to say anything, the large shadow of 'Hulk Hogan' falls over your window. He's standing beside you. What do you do?

Give him a ride. No way to avoid it

I am interested in the wonders and possibilities of lentils.

I have in my possession one (1) 15.5 ounce (.43kg) can of "lentils", no other special description listed on it.

What can I do to this can of lentils that's fairly simple (so I don't screw it up and blame not liking them on what I screwed up) but also fairly representative of lentil dishes in general?

Feel special

What is something that makes you feel very special?

When my kids show/tell me they love me. IT makes me feel I am doing something right in being a parent. I try my best. Some days I feel like I'm not a very good mommy... but I just hope I can raise them good.

Singing in the Rain

Do you like to play in the rain?

Why or Why not?

If you do play in the rain, what do you do?

If there was 4 inches of water in my yard 30 minutes ago, why is the soil dry as dust just a quarter inch down? There is no ditch for it to have drained into, and the rivulets that are left are draining in to a very shallow, very small puddle. I mean, my yard was a two acre, four inch deep lake a few minutes ago. Where is all of the water now?

How do you deal with line cutters?

This past Sunday I was at a small waterpark with my children and I was stymied by the amount of line cutting going on. Not just by small children either, but by pre-teens and teens as well.
I held my tongue because I seriously loathe monitoring or reprimanding the behaviors of someone else's children. But it was ANNOYING.

Someone offers to give you, free of charge, an outfit that would be perfect for an upcoming formal event you're planning on attending. You really love how the clothing looks on you, and it is really good quality - something that would normally sell for hundreds of dollars. The catch is that the previous owner of said clothing had died while wearing it. It has since been thoroughly cleaned, and they is absolutely no damage/sign that anything had happened to it.

Would you accept the offer?

What if rather than clothing, the offered item in question was a well-maintained car that the previous owner had committed suicide inside of?

What monsters (from anything- books, movies, legends, etc) scare/disturb/whatever you the most?


Also, when I get my nails done this coming week, what color tips should I get (not white)? I have silver right now and I don't really like them. I had pink last time.

Wedding colors...

My SO and I were set to have our wedding in 2/16 HOWEVER, he is currently active duty Army and his separation date has been pushed to 3/31...so now we are looking at a May wedding (thank goodness for flexible wedding venues).

Our colors were dark red, black and ivory...but that doesn't seem appropriate for May. The black is set (bridesmaids dresses are purchased) but I'm not sure the dark red will work.

What would you think a good color combo (with black) would be for a May wedding?

Is there a way to "gift" someone's AT&T GoPhone account?
I'm not trying to break into their account or get any information from it...I just want to pay someone's bill for a month so they can get their phone turned back on without them knowing it was me....but I can't figure out if that is even possible. The only information I have is their phone number.
