What do you do when it's late at night and everything's quiet, and you watch a tv show or movie that depresses you unexpectedly, and you can't stop thinking terrible thoughts? How do you shake it off? Will you tell me about the a time that happened to you?

Tips?

I have a house cleaner who comes sporadically, like maybe once a month. She does an incredible job. She is employed by another lady who runs the house cleaning business. I usually have her come for 4 hours, which is $120. Should I tip her and how much? I'd like to, but I'm not sure what an appropriate amount is. Any suggestions?

Zombie survival guide poll. How long would you last?

You're walking down the street when you see what looks like a dead guy running towards you, arms open, mouth agape. You feel that he's dead because of the green complexion, and all the rotting flesh. What do you do?

You're dating someone new. You go back to your date's place, and notices that he/she has a collection of some kind. Collects something. Which collections would count against your date, as in, would make you consider that there isn't really going to be a long term with this person (or maybe not even much more of a short term)? Like it's the kind of collection that reveals something unpleasant about the owner of said collection. Anything you don't check it's assumed the collection is either cool or neutral

For the past few weeks, I've been having weird calf pain, just in my left leg. Sometimes there's a lot of pressure and sometimes it's sharp and stabbing and there's the occasional spasm-y feeling and it's just getting worse and worse, especially if I stand or walk for too long. I saw my doctor today and we ruled out blood clots (woo! but discovered that with my family history, I should stop taking hbc, boo), but all I was left with "take tylenol, stay down, and let me know if it gets worse."

What's wrong with me? What should I do to make it feel better?

More importantly, how am I going to spend all my free time on the couch?

How much spending money would you bring (edit: save/plan to spend) for a 7-day Caribbean cruise on one of the fanciest cruise ships ever? Stops are a Royal Caribbean property in Haiti, Jamaica, and Cozumel. There will also be a Miami bachelorette party preceding the cruise.

What do you have planned for your next vacation?

1. Say that you were an employer in an at-will state. You find out that one of your employees was arrested/is out on bail for charges relating to an incident of serious domestic violence. This employee has never acted inappropriately at work and their performance is average-good, but they have no contract with you or any such thing. Would finding out about their domestic violence charges influence you in regards to keeping them on/firing them? What about in regards to future promotions and such? What if this was not the first time they were facing such charges?

2. Do you think that most people are more productive when they work at the office as opposed to working from home (assuming the tasks they are doing are the same either way)?

3. What would you do if a Catholic priest hit on you, in a social (non-religiously affiliated) place/setting?

my parents and i want to go to las vegas this spring break. the only problem is the flight prices are jacked up so high around that time :(

does anyone have any ideas about how to get around this? when you travel somewhere, what are your tricks to getting a cheaper flight? or is that even possible? i was thinking maybe there was a site or something that could get me a deal but i really don't know. my parents have no idea, either. i live in canada, if that makes any difference.

Has anyone here made a photobook on Walmart.com?

Do they print a logo or barcode on the book?

If so does it interfere or lay over any of the images?

Google has been no help nor has their customer service, sorry if its a ridiculous question.

DK/DC : What is the last movie you saw that surprised you, be it good or bad?

I watched Pitch Perfect last night after having friends rave about it and rolling my eyes because I ASSumed it was another typical "look, its about singing, that shit is popular now right?" movie...and I loved it so..I had no clue whats-her-face from Twilight had a musical background and Im now a huge Rebel Wilson fan..omg, chick is fucking hilarious!

What would you do if you had a lot of excess money and didn't need/want anything for yourself (as far as extra possessions)? How would you spend the money?

"Saving/investing" is not allowed in this scenario. You gotta spend the dough!
