I am finally able to go to Florida for a week next month !!

When was the last time you went away on vacation?
Where did you go?
Anything exciting happen while you were there?


Random question that just popped in my head:
Do you know how to read/write shorthand?
Does anyone even use shorthand anymore?
writing

March is Youth Art Month

1. It's Youth Art Month! What awesome youth art have you seen lately or ever? (I think it's supposed to be children and young adults...)

2. I run a fairly small forum for people with creative hobbies, and there's a section I change the topic of every now and then. I changed it to Youth Art Month and now I can't think of any threads to post because I have the dumb. Any ideas? Trying to get some good conversation going and maybe attract some new members which I really need.

3. What are the last parts of your email addresses? eg hotmail.com or yahoo.com.uk or whatever.

Hey TQC, my boyfriend and I want to take a mini-vacation, will you suggest some destinations for us?

Details:
-live in NYC, would need to rent a car to drive anywhere but that's not a problem
-airplane/bus/train all options as well
-looking to take a long weekend, maybe Thursday/Friday-Monday
-willing to spend about $500-800 on travel/lodging/activities

We're pretty much open to anything. We just need to get the eff away.

My boyfriend and I are making a grocery list and meal plan for the week and realized our meals are full of carbs and proteins and little else.

What are some good ways to incorporate vegetables into our diet that don't take a lot of extra preparation? we can only take so many raw carrot sticks. Also I don't like vegetables in general so I'm trying to find creative ways to sneak them in there.

or if you don't care:

What's on your typical grocery list?

eta: per ellelelle's suggestion, here are the meals we usually eat (i am looking up new recipes all the time but just started learning how to cook): spaghetti, lasagna, grilled chicken, turkey burgers, chili, enchiladas.

Is there a formal way to write "and/or"?

Do you just write two sentences containing the different conjunctions? It seems redundant.

I try to avoid that phrase in formal writing but sometimes it seems so appropriate.

A long-term couple lives together and has kids. They both work.

They decide to put a certain amount of their paychecks into a joint account to pay for household items, bills, things for the kids, etc., and a certain percentage into a joint savings account.

And they keep the rest in their own separate accounts to buy whatever they want.

Do you see any problems arising from this setup?

The kidney infection I posted about last week turned into a 6 day hospital stay. I need something to get excited about.

So, as i'm moving to Florida in 6 weeks, what should I do with my last few weeks in the UK/at home?
What should I do to prepare for the big move?
What stuff should an English girl in America know? (I've only ever been to New York before)

Dk/dk: Will you share a picture of the area where you live?
