#When non-asian people point out that I'm eating asian food (any type) because I'm asian and expect me to laugh at that point.

This seems like this would be a very specific situation but this has happened to me more than I ever thought it would.

What are some irritating and awkward race/ethnicity  *light-hearted jokes* that has happened to you or to anyone you know?

One of the neighbor kids just got a tuba and spent a half an hour standing outside of my open window playing Hot Cross Buns over and over and over. and then, I guess, just trying to see what sorts of awful noises he could make on the tuba.

Obviously the thing to do is to ask his mother to ask him not to do that anymore, and that is what I'm going to do (his mother and I get along really well) but, just for the fun of it, what hilarious things could I do instead?

NON-SERIOUS ONLY, PLEASE.

If your neighbor's kid spent a half an hour playing the tuba badly outside your window, and if you lived in a universe in which you could only respond with some sort of prank, what sort of prank would you pull?

Has anyone ever changed a habit to please a SO/SO's family? Did you put up a fuss about it? What did you change?

Brought to you by me learning to put the toilet lid down when I flush. We never, ever did that at my house growing up, so I just didn't think about it, but my SO's mother (he lives at home) asked me to start doing it. Most of the time I remember, but sometimes I don't. I feel really badly when I don't!

Lately I've had The Fountain OST stuck in my head. I really enjoy OSTs by Clint Mansell and Cliff Martinez, and occasionally by Thomas Newman.

TQC, can you recommend some instrumental OSTs for the rest of us to enjoy?  :)

Did you read Gone Girl? What are you thoughts on it? Will they make it into a movie?

I just finished it and it kept me on the edge of my seat but I hated the ending.
My husband pointed out that I hate most books endings. Which I'm sad to say seems to be true.

Are you like this?

I'm trying to figure out why this is my case. I think partly because I put so much time into a book that I want to be satisfied in the end.

What book have you read recently or are currently reading?
Are you loving it/liking it/hating it?

How many books do you read in a month?

My hair is on the dry and frizzy side. I rarely straighten my hair and I let it air dry when I get out the shower. I feel like I've tried a good amount of things to moisturize my hair with no avail. I've even tried the whole leave-in coconut oil thing that people rave over so much.

If you had this hair problem, what product or home remedy do you swear by that has helped you turned into a confident, moisturized person you are today?

One of my co-workers is basically quitting (she's giving up all of her regular shifts except one and that's at another department, so we won't be seeing her regularly anymore) to go back to the university after a two year hiatus after high school.

What kind of gift could we get her as a good luck? I would like to give her something school related.

When it comes to commuting via bicycle, which sounds like the better option to you? -

1. A 15 minute commute on a busy main road that is only semi-bike friendly (there are pavement markings of bikes, but no lanes for bikers. It is common to see other cyclists on this road)

or

2. A 30 minute commute mostly on a peaceful, relaxing off-road bike path. The bike path gets off on a busy, main road that is bike unfriendly. You will have to bike uphill on this street for 0.4 miles. Edit: or you can walk your bike uphill on the sidewalk, but that takes time.

My 1.5 year old niece will be here this weekend, I'm sure my sister will bring various toys for her but can you think of anything I can make quick/cheaply that she might like? I made play dough earlier! I've seen instructions to make sidewalk chalk but I'm not sure she's old enough to really enjoy that.
