tears

gifts for my bridesmaids

I am putting together a goodie bag for each of my bridesmaids and so far I have a tank top, necklace and small wooden jewelry box with their name on it. I wanted to include a waterproof mascara in the bag for the day of the wedding. I was thinking of something like Maybelline or some other drug store brand mascara...Question I have is is that tacky? I wanted to buy them MAC, but it's a little over budget right now....

My idiot husband messed up the time zone difference AGAIN and we missed the new announcement of Doctor Who AND HE DIDN'T RECORD IT. It doesn't rerun anytime soon.

How should I murder him?

Does turning off your AC entirely while you're not home save more money on the power bill than turning the temperature up while you're gone? Does it work the same way for heat?

Related, is leaving cell phone chargers plugged into the wall when not in use wasting a substantial amount of electricity?

What are some tips you have for cutting your electric bill down? My boyfriend and I moved into a new apartment and the bill was almost $200, which is nuts.

You look better with _____.

Poll #1927581 Compliments?

Let's say you looked different somehow than you normally do (e.g. you got your ears pierced, wearing makeup when you usually don't, got a haircut, wearing different type of clothes, whatever). If someone who you don't talk to much but you see around (coworker, classmate, or even a family member you're not particularly close to) suddenly tells you "You look better with earrings/short hair/those clothes/makeup/whatever", would you take it as an insult? For the sake of this question, you neither like nor dislike this person.

Yes. They're implying I didn't look good before.

Kind of. I'd assume they meant it as a compliment, but I'd feel self-conscious about the way I look normally/before.
60(57.7%)
Not at all. They're just saying I look extra good like this.
