I'm looking for an obscure item to gift somebody for his birthday, like maybe something oddly useful or a functional novelty item? Any suggestions?

Hey TQC,

In an effort to reduce clutter, I have gone through all my Martha Stewart magazines (~40 of them), taken out the pages I want to save, and discarded the rest. I plan to put the pages into a binder, but I’m at a loss as to how to organize them.

I was originally going to go by a) types of holiday, b) types of recipe, and c) homes/non-holiday décor, but this is complicated by the fact that some articles include both decorations and various types of recipe (i.e. appetizer, entrée and dessert) all together, so it’s hard to separate them. I thought I might go by season, but some items don't really fall into a particular season, and it might be hard for me to decide what's seasonal and what isn't (like for a lot of recipes).

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Asking for a friend:

What color shoes would you wear with a white top and mint green skirt?
How about a white top and a dark pink skirt?

Thanks :)

do you know anyone who has ever had to go through an arranged marriage? define 'arranged marriage' however you wish

what are your thoughts on arranged marriages?

i'm surprised most of them turn out well tbh, but i think culture (by that i mean having same ideals and values) does have a lot to do with how successful a marriage can be.

1. I bought this bag at work today to use at Disneyland and on flights. I can't imagine I will use it much otherwise. My coworkers informed me that they all think it's hideous. Is it really hideous? Hideous enough to return? I don't love it but I don't really see anything wrong with it either.

2. Have you ever been on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad? Did you like it?

Etiquette question [Jul. 25th, 2013|04:52 pm]

Would you bring food to a Celebration of Life? It's outdoors. I was going to bake some blondies in a disposable baking pan, so I could just give it to the family, or they could serve it, whatever. But my husband seemed to think I'd lost my mind, so I'm here checking for opinions. Anybody ever been to one of these before? This is my first, and I haven't even attended many funerals.

You're dating a person and it's reached the point of the relationship where you're going to their home for the first time. You enter the house and are immediately met by mess. There are crumbs, animal hair and stains of some sort on the carpet and furniture, unwashed stacks of plates in the living area, general rubbish tossed to the side, dirty clothes strewed all over, there are tables and counter tops covered in stuff with layers of dust and other various messy things of mess all over the place. What would be your reaction to this if any?
Are you a messy person?

Wedding registry confusion [Jul. 25th, 2013|06:03 pm]
The Question Club

[briansue]
Basically everything I know about wedding etiquette I know from reading posts here so forgive me if the answer is obvious.

A good friend from high school is having a wedding in two weeks. She and her husband are technically married but the ceremony was in England (he's British, she's American) so they are coming here to do something with her family and friends. It's being billed as a wedding so I was sent the gift registry.

The wedding is in two weeks and the only thing gone from the list is a set of coasters. I was thinking I should get something from the list but everything is so plain and while I know it's what they want and need for their new home, I also want to give something that comes from the heart. I also know shipping things back will suck and they are going back to England to live permanently after this trip. I had resigned to using the registry until today when I realized only one item had been purchased.

So do I get something off of the registry seemingly nobody is using or something more personal that will eventually have to be shipped back with them? Are things on a registry suggestions or preferences? Thank you in advance! I find weddings so intimidating.

My dad died in December, and I'm getting married in April.

Without straight out mentioning him in a speech, how could I acknowledge my dad without depressing the hell out of myself and my family?
My venue doesn't allow candles, which was my original idea.

Edit: Thank you for all your advice. I only booked my wedding this week, so I have approx. 8 months to decide. I like the idea of a photo of him on the alter. I may also buy a buttonhole that he would have worn and placing it next to his photo

Do any wildlife (or non wildlife) annoy or pose a threat to your community, be that animals, plants, or yourself? For example: coyotes, porcupines, ticks, and at times mountain lions will cause a problem in my area. Mice can also be a bitch during our winters.

Savings bonds [Jul. 25th, 2013|07:16 pm]

Inspired by the earlier post about gift giving at a child's birthday -

Do you have savings bonds? Are any of them mature? Do you have plans for them?

I have a couple savings bonds from when I was a kid. One is fully matured, one isn't yet. I have no idea when I should cash them in. Should I use it on something fun, something practical? Do I wait until the money is needed for something? I know I should be patient and they'll keep going up in value, but I don't want to wait forever! Just wondering what other opinions are on them.
