what are the best nail polish brands for people on a budget? i don't want to pay $8 for one bottle.
I've decided I'm going to try working part-time from home, so that I can get a swimming pool. I've put in applications at West@Home and Sykes Home/Alpine Access. Waiting to hear from them.
Does anyone here work from home, part-time, and make about $600 a month? I have beaucoup experience with inbound help desk/tech support call centers -- anything like that?
Alright, this is probably a stupid question but I'm going ahead and asking it. I seem to have developed an infestation of gnats/fruit flies/whatever those annoying flying bug things that flock together are. I had a few days worth of dishes and some glasses of water left from yesterday and there were about thirty of them all over it this morning. I cleaned the dishes, took out the trash, and they scattered...and I'm going to do some heavy duty cleaning soon. But I'm not sure what's next. I have paranoia that they are laying eggs all over my house at this point lol. While my house is by no means clean, it is definitely presentable and not THAT bad that I should be getting bugs. What should I do?? Should I make a trap or something?
Dkdc, what was your last bug problem?
Having had my first small tattoo a few weeks ago (as a way to see if my fibro could deal with tattoo pain), I am now drawing up my second, larger, planned tattoo (it's a platypus). I am torn between foot and back, but I have a probably stupid question. Over the next year or so, I want to lose about 70lbs. Would that affect a tattoo on the centre of my back (down the spine at the top)? Should I wait until I've lost it all, or lost some?
What are some cool things to get for a 12 year old boy's room? My half sister will be moving into a new home soon so I wanted to get her kids something for their new rooms. I already bought my nephew a bulletin board with his favorite football team's logo on it, but i'd like to get him at least one other thing (preferably not a poster or wall decal). Any suggestions?
Has anyone here ever worked as a process server? Do you know if process servers are paid by the attempt, or only when they successfully serve the named respondent? Are they still paid if the person they serve isn't the named respondent?
what are your techniques, tactics, stratagems for saving money on groceries?
What was the last bit of junk email you got?
-I just read the subject line; 'Coupons for things you actually want!'...and then deleted it with the rest of them.
What did/will you make for dinner?
There's a character in a fantasy story I'm working on and (naturally) I've run into a bit of a problem with him.
He's a very unapproachable/scary sort of character, but I want an element that takes him down a notch and makes him a little less intimidating, even if only briefly. My idea was to make him adept at playing some sort of musical instrument, but because the story is set in a fantasy world, I'm not really sure how to go about doing that. I feel like it would probably be awkward to have him use a real-life instrument like a piano or a harmonica, so would it be better to try to just invent an instrument (that's obviously based on a real one) instead?
Or, since that idea is cheesy and unoriginal, what other sorts of props could I use to make him slightly less intimidating without going overboard? I don't want him to save a baby from a burning building or anything humanitarian like that.
Long story short: It's hot. Really hot, and the only window in my room is actually just a skylight. There's no way to put an air conditioner in. Does anyone know of any other options?
I've heard several people say that their tower fans put out cold air, but I can't seem to find any that do, and I've had several people tell me that they don't exist. I don't need something to cool the entire room-- just spot cooling, I suppose. (I sleep with two regular fans on me as it is, but it's about to get really hot again).

Can anyone recommend a good deep conditioning treatment for recently bleached/processed hair?
