tqc I just had to wake up at 5 am on my day off to do something work related because the people at work who were supposed to do it (and get paid way more than me), did not.

irritated is an understatement. what's the last annoying/assholeish thing someone at your work did?

From taking a bunch of meds recently, my body is screwed up. Digestive system alternates between not being able to go,and not being able to stop, my skin is terrible, hair is dried out, I have no energy.

Everyone I talk to says to eat Greek yogurt or take probiotics.  Since I'm 100% lactose intolerant, the yogurt is out.  I know what probiotics are, but there seems to be a zillion out there all proclaiming to do everything.

So rather than just pick out something randomly, what would you recommend  I take in order to get my body's normal bacteria back into balance? If I can buy it at the Vitamin Store or GNC that's a bonus since they are both nearby.

I know it's not any time soon but because I'm most likely making the costume I thought I'd bring it up now since I should start it asap.

My son wants to be a snake for Halloween. I have no idea how to make him look like a snake without actually making him look like a lizard instead since he'll have to have his arms/legs free. The mere thought of being anything other than a blue snake for Halloween is a complete insult to his little senses.  I was thinking of dressing him all in black and draping a snake toy around him, making the toy into a puppet he can move around but I'm not sure he'll go for it.

Any other suggestions on how to pull this one off?

What is something you're excited about?!

My husband and I are moving into our own house next month! So excited!
Also, for some reason I cannot wait for Halloween and Christmas this year. Might have something to do with my sister having her baby sometime in November (my twins will turn 1 in November too, so extra baby love this year with them having a cousin so close in age!)

TQC, I hate spending money on makeup and skin care, but I like to have a bit of it around, and I do use it. I always feel like the markup must be huge on this stuff and I get the sense that I'm being swindled.

What do you buy and use regularly but you still think is overpriced?

I currently am in an emotionally abusive situation, that has recently started to cross the lines into physical abuse. I do not have the financial means to get my own place, but know that I need to leave. I'm just wondering if anybody knows a good, stable homeless shelter in the Toronto area? The main one I could find was covenant house, but I'm going to be 24 soon, and thats the cut off age...

Does anyone have experience in a homeless shelter and wouldn't mind sharing?

don't know, dont care:

do you agree with this?

I view the requirement of proof beyond a reasonable doubt in a criminal case as bottomed on the fundamental value determination of our society that it is far worse to convict an innocent man than to let a guilty man go free" -- Justice Harlan
