It's 1:30 am where am. I live in an apartment building. My upstairs neighbor decided it'd be a good night to throw a party.

Two separate times I asked them nicely to quiet down...after they woke up my kids I called the police to lodge a complaint. That was at 11pm. I just had to call again at 12:30 am. The officer left about 35 minutes ago.

What are the chances they'll actually shut the fuck up this time?

He throws parties like this without telling/asking the me and the other neighbors if its ok. My landlords know about all of the noise, yet they don't do anything about it.

I'm going to Florida next week with my mom and my kids ( 7 year old boy, 4 year old girl). What am I going to forget to pack?

Can't Cook

So I tried making honey-lemon chicken in the oven yesterday and I did everything as the recipe said. Pre-heat oven (at temperature called for); put it in uncovered for 30 minutes. The 30 minutes came and went and that chicken did not cook well. The pieces were not too big; to think they needed more time. I noticed that my oven (gas) doesn’t stay on all the time, could that be why?

I do not have experience with ovens so can any of you please help, advise me, on the proper way to cook in the oven. Tips, tricks etc….. I’m lost and a newlywed.

TQC, I'm stuck in Court. Where are you right now and what's going on?
I'm waiting for the Judge to call my case and he is tearing attorneys apart that can't answer his simple questions. It's quite amusing. But it looks like I'll be here quite some time, especially because jury deliberation is going on and it keeps interrupting the proceedings.
Brooklyn Supreme Court is always a fun experience haha

This week I upgraded my phone to iPhone 4S (contract said I was eligible for upgrade, and I had to do it right then anyway 'cause a customer stole my 3GS....) and I love the voice features. Siri is a goddess (if a slightly deaf one at times).

Which is why I was hoping I could get some advice on Bluetooth stuff. Looking at Amazon reviews is really iffy because a good chunk of them are likely to be faked. I also don't have the cash to get a super fancy one (because of the new phone!), but also don't want one that is a pure waste of money. So pretty much a spending range of $20~45?

I'd mostly, maybe only, use it while driving. Not only is it illegal here to text/talk while driving, but Siri is practically deaf in a vehicle on the road (I tried it while at a red light!)

Any suggestions?

Halp!

I am stuck on a plane next to this guy who reeks of burrito and is schnotting it up nonstop. The elderly lady on the aisle side of him actually broke down and offered him a tissue, which he declined. How do I survive the next few hours without losing my mind or getting his plague????

Dk/DC: who is your favorite historical queen or female figure (ideally one who lived before 1900).

unrelated?

1. How long after you leave a takeaway or drive-through restaurant is too late to complain to them that the food was wrong? If it's been way too long or you can't be bothered to go back, is an acceptable solution calling to leave your name and requesting a free item on the next visit?

2. You find out your doctor, therapist, other trusted health care provider is of a strange religion or sect. You pick whatever you think "strange" means. Does that change the way you feel about seeing them, or affect your level of trust in them? What would be a dealbreaker?

3. What's your comfort food?

4. What's your comfort object?
