In March, I have a week to travel. My choices are 1.) Iceland 2.) Russia 3.) Egypt
Does anyone have travel experience/knowledge of those places they would be willing to share?

I've been using my laptop to read .pdf books for a while but I found it screwed up my ability to sleep, so I've stopped, and am now considering an eReader instead. So, to those who have eReaders, which one do you have? Do you like it? Do you use it to read before bed, and do you think it affects your quality of sleep? I'm obviously looking for one that doesn't have a backlight or at least has settings to turn it off.
When you know someone is fishing for compliments, do you tell them what they want to hear, call them out, or nod and smile?
Around a year ago I posted here about my mum's cervical cancer diagnosis and her refusal to have chemo and I asked what would you do if your loved one refused to have conventional treatment and instead seek out "alternative" treatment? (she did have external radiation therapy but not the internal or chemo)
Almost a year to the day from my last entry here, my Mum went into hospital with septicemia and a perforated bowel. She had surgery and a colostomy bag attached while her bowel heals but we weren't given any info regarding the cancer as the bowel was the main focus at the time. Of course, we figured that the cancer had spread but we didn't know how far or what our options were, but we assumed surgery & chemo would be offered.
Then yesterday we were told that the cancer is inoperable, that chemo isn't effective in this situation and that there is nothing else they can do. So they have admitted her into the palliative care service.
The doctor said we are looking at months.
What happens now?
What does palliative care do?
Is it wrong of my to feel angry at my mum? I can't help but feel like she squandered her one chance at survival and now I'm losing my mum and I feel so mad at her and scared for her... I would never tell her that, but it's just not fair!
Please, if anyone here has gone through something like this, please how did you get through it? I can't wrap my mind around the finality of this and I don't know what to do. I want to be there for her but I'm so scared and I have no idea what to expect, so any advice would mean so much to me right now.
i'm going to invite my friend to a movie tonight. should we go to django unchained, texas chainsaw massacre in 3d, or silver linings playbook?

have you ever watched a harmony korine film?
I wanted to participate in the picture post -- but I just discovered that Webshots is gone. Did anyone else here ever use them? Did you lose all your photos too?
If you had $10,000 to invest in the stock market right now, what would you buy?
I think I would put most if not all of it in energy stocks or etf's. I think energy is going to boom in the next ten years.
I feel like watching a movie. The following are available for free on demand. Which one should I watch?

What's your opinion of Once Upon A Time, the tv series? Is it worth watching?
How the heck do wigs stay on? Can a wig be secured so that it's solid enough for a serious dance performance?
Forgive my wig ignorance.
Hypothetically what do you think would make Leonardo DiCaprio cry more, getting an honorary Oscar after he's retired from acting or someone else winning an Oscar for playing him in a bio-pic?
My dad told me to not be surprised if a lot of people show up for the reception and not to the actual church ceremony. I think that's pretty lousy. Is this common?
1. Do you try to squeeze every last bit out of the toothpaste tube before you throw it out?
2. Did you ever believe that Jewish people have horns on their heads?
TQCers who wear tights: do you wear them with or without underpants?
I don't mean leggings/jeggings worn as trousers. I mean tights, like under a skirt.
For some reason I'm not getting messages now when someone comments on my entries or responds to my posts and I have no idea why. Its only happened in the past hour or so. Is anyone else experiencing this or did I do something wrong? I use the full web version of lj on my phone's web browser.
ETA I went to message settings in my inbox and all the appropriate boxes are still checked. =/
Do you have an occupation that can't easily be named in one word like, "doctor, lawyer, nurse, teacher"? If so, what do you do exactly?
I was just watching The Bachelor (missed it on Monday), and noticed that every girls' occupations are listed under their names whenever they come up. Jumbotron operator, anyone?
If you were on a show like that and needed to sum up your occupation in two words or less, what would it/they be?
