My friend is coming over to help us with some home renovations. In exchange we're cooking dinner for him, his gf, and their kids (age 5, almost 2 and under 1). What should we make? Preferably something cheap, good, and easy/quick.
I'm leaving for Florida Friday morning, and I decided that I need something more than my iPhone for pictures.
I don't have a lot of cash I'm willing to spend on one...mostly because I'll rarely use it...so the cheaper the better. And I don't want to borrow one from someone in case it gets lost, stolen, or broken.
Any tips for keeping a 7 year old, a 4 year old, and a 49 year old occupied on 8+ hour car rides? (the more non serious suggestions, the better!)
ten years after guitarist alvin lee died at 68 today. my dad told me he met him after his show once.
my mom worked for a limousine company for ten years, one of whose clients was alec baldwin. mom said, after a minor mishap (that was his assistant's fault), he called and yelled at her for an hour and a half, literally giving her the "don't you know who i am"/"how busy i am" thing.
have you ever met someone famous/notable? if so, what were they like? did they meet your expectations? have you ever had a nasty experience meeting a celebrity?
DK/DC: what celebrity/famous person would you most like to meet? what would you want to do once you did?
Are there more TQCers around here with the 'infamous' apple-shape? If so, what do you do to make it work? Also, do you know of any inspiration blogs/tumblrs that center around this body-type? Do you feel that the hourglass-shape and the pear-shape is more accepted than the apple?
Brought to you by my search for body-positive and fat-positive blogs to boost my self-esteem but it only being brought down by seeing all these lovely pear and hourglass-shaped women, and me not really have a waist to speak off.
Dc/dk: What's your favorite fruit and/or fruity recipe? Mine is pear and melon and i just love, love melon-ham salads or goat-cheese with pear and honey
Your age? Gender? How would you feel if someone pulled out a chair for you in a situation you could easily do it yourself? How about opening the car door? Regular door? Do you expect or practice this attitude?
I find I like if someone holds the door for me if they just passed through (I do it as well), but it's annoying if I have my chair pulled out or am expected to sit in the car to wait to have my door opened. I have perfectly functioning hands.
