This is most likely going to be a cliche question but.....

How long would you wait to start dating after a break up, separation, or divorce?

( I recently got separated from my wife but getting a lot of hassle about wanting to start dating etc)

I've started a book review blog. It's the first time I've ever done such a thing.

I was wondering if its OK to link back to Amazon, where I got the book from at the end of my review? Or is that frowned upon in the book review world.

I've looked at a lot of review blogs and none of them have done it and I'd like to know why.

Let's talk about death

Most manly way to die?

Killed by a bear
Parachute mishap
Taking a bullet for someone else
Heart attack while overexerting himself in a barfight
Hunting accident

Least manly way to die?

Killed by a swan (darted out of the bushes)
Dollhouse mishap (tripped and impaled himself on the Barbie castle he was constructing)
Sodomized by a bull in death
Heart attack while overexerting himself at a Glee! event
Drowning in a silo full of glitter

Best way to die?

Drug overdose. At the height of your high, you check out...for good
Heart attack during sex (sucks for the other person, but it's not about them right now)
Getting bludgeoned by a sign while beating up a handful of Westboro Baptists
Drowning in a containment tank of the alcohol of your choosing
Getting shot while protecting the President

Worst way to die?

Shark attack. You have a leg bitten off
Losing your balance and falling into the lava of a simmering volcano
Getting into a fatal car accident with a bus of 19 furries. You accidentally get lumped in with the rest and the news story reads '20 furries killed in accident'
During an excrutiating dentist visit, your heart stops. Your heart couldn't take so much pain (the novocaine didn't work)
Unbeknownst to you, the Situation is next to you on the street. A gunshot is fired, and you're shot instead of him. You die in his arms. The news story reads 'Situation's biggest fan takes bullet for him'

any clues what happened?

after lunch today, I'd stand up and feel very vertigo-y/drunkish. I've never had vertigo, nor had I been drinking.
Also felt very "light", if that makes any sense. My arms felt like they were floating sort of.

[yes I ate enough, pasta + tuna.]

wtf was that?? was that veritgo?

TQC, I just took in my friend's cat because she had to get rid of him. He's a little over a year old and he has kitten food still (I think it's Purina or something) but he's about out. I need to get him real cat food, preferably dry. Does anyone have recommendations for good, not terribly expensive cat food? I've heard good things about Blue Buffalo, since they use real meat instead of the fake stuff that's in Purina and others. Is this a good choice?

Bonus: any litter recommendations to cut down on odor? I don't have a good place to keep his litter box other than in the bathroom, and it smells up the whole apartment!

Would you say that the Facebook pages of most people in relationships contain at least some sort of evidence that they are taken, even if they don't have any relationship status posted or tons of obviously couple-y photos?
In other words, would you, after some serious Facebook stalking, be able to deduce whether someone is single or not?

TQC. I have my first driving lesson next week, so my partner decided to give me a mini one in our parking lot. I reversed fine, but as I moved forward, I went a bit too fast, hit accelerate not brake and..well I crashed the car into another car. Now the drivers door won't open and the other cars license plate broke off into our headlight, so the right headlight is broken. Luckily the car I hit has been abandoned in out lot for about 2 years so that's not a worry...not that I actually damaged it.

So I feel really stupid right now. Can you tell me some horror stories about your driving to make me feel less mortified? My partner just thinks its funny.

People in relationships, when do you count your anniversary from?  Meeting/first day/official couple/separate anniversaries/etc?  Wedded folks, do you still acknowledge your original anniversary now that you're married?

So about a week ago I took Plan B, or the morning after pill, but its having some really strange side effects.
Like I started spotting my period twice and I also have had such bad cramping on and off for the past week
Has anyone every taken Plan B?
If so what were your experiences with it?

Help me TQC.. My e-mail was hacked (I think) because when I open it and enter my password it doesnt say the pass is wrong it just says this email address is in use. I tried blocking it or changing the password it's not working. Any idea how I can get it back? I am very upset by this because all my accounts information go directly to my email. And I have many university stuff too so I don't know what to do. Is there someone I could go to, to hack it again from the hacker? If it makes sense anyway.. And IF it is indeed hacked, then the responses to this article will go back to my inbox ugh the thought that someone could be reading my emails is unsettling

For anyone in a health/medical field or has just had experience with this:

If I had a normal echocardiogram result, does that mean A-Fib (atrial fibrillation) has been ruled out?
I have been having very strong heart palpitations intermittently for several months. I've never been able to record one on a Holter monitor, but I did have an echocardiogram done recently. The results were said to be normal. I know that rules out things like mitral valve prolapse, but I'm worried about atrial fibrilation because a) my father has it and b) the heart palpitations continue to return.

(Yes, I have an appointment with my cardiologist, but it isn't for another month. Sigh.)


I'm trying to remember the title of a film. I recall its about 7 and a half hours long and has the word "hell" in the title. Does anyone know which one I'm talking about?(I do not know anything else, it was recommended without other info)

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good cross platform desktop blogging software?

Right now I'm using the trail version of MarsEdit which works okay but I need it be able to cross post between multiple blogs with ease or at least by default and edit older post which I can't do because MarsEdit doesn't/can't download all my previous LJ & DW post.
