eat me

I want to do something to cheer my mother up.

We buried her sister last week. I know she's still grieving and I don't expect to change that but I want to do something to let her know I'm thinking of her.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Limitations: I'm on a budget. She's on a diet. She's not really into pampering or jewellery. I'm not opposed to arts and crafts but my skills are limited.

Any ideas would be really appreciated guys. Right now the only thing I can think of is cooking her a healthy meal, but I'd need to get a look at her meal plans!!

I need the advice of any Downton Abbey watchers. We've been watching on Netflix, and we've currently got the last disk of season three sitting by the TV. It contains episodes six and seven, which I assume are the last episode of the season proper and the Christmas special. But Ive heard that the Christmas special was so terrible it made the whole series worse by association. Is it true? Should we watch episode six and skip the Christmas special? Or is the bad press just a bunch of haters trying to impress us with their scathing critiques?

No spoilers, please. Unless they kill Bates, in which case simply tell me "Don't watch it."

bra questions

So not only do I need more bras in general, but I want to get a pretty/sexy bra(s) to wear around my new boyfriend.

I went to Kohl's and it was a complete bust. The only cute bras they had were padded, so the only way I could try any of them on (even the "demis") were if I went from my typical 34C to 38C. The unpadded bras were all completely plain. I did find one bra that I liked, but it was slightly padded so 34C didn't fit and they didn't have anything bigger band-wise... It really didn't help that the padded bras that I did manage to fit in

Where can I go to find cute bras without burning a hole in my pocket?

Have you ever seen a duck in a tree?

EDIT: I'm working on a project for school. I have to come up with two activities for a child with some social issues. I'd like to sort of piggy back on the idea of using pictures of facial expressions that can help Autistic children 'read' faces, but for mine, it would be how to act in a social situation. I was hoping to come up with 5 ideas where the child (he's 5 and going to kindergarten) could look and maybe talk about what he would do. So, one idea is to have a picture of kids playing on the playground, and ask him what he would do if he wanted to join the other kids - I'd be looking for answers like "ask if I can play", that type of thing. Another would be maybe a child looking sad over a broken toy or dropped ice cream cone, where he might be able to show some sympathy, or ask if they need help. Any other ideas? Both his parents and I are concerned that he doesn't interact with other kids much at all. He has been observed by the school psychologist, and they don't think he's on the Autism spectrum...he's just got very poor social skills outside of his home/family.

Recycled movie sets

Is there an official website that gives a comprehensive list of movie sets that have been re-used in other unrelated movies? I've found a few things already, but so far I haven't found one where you can search through a list that shows you, say, if a hotel set in Ghostbusters is the same one used in another movie. Any ideas?

Have you ever had an argument with someone and the next day you think of all the good points you could've made? do you let it go at that point since the conversation left on a friendly note or would you call them back to make your points?

Have you ever lived in another country, long-term? How did it work out?

Have you ever just picked up and relocated on a whim? Did it turn out alright, or was it horrible?

If you could live in any country, what country would you live in and why?
