Of the following quotes from the book "Horns", which makes you more interested in knowing about the character that the quote is about?
what was your best birthday and why?
You are eating alone at a fast food type place, which is very crowded. Strangers walks up to you and asks if you mind sharing the table with them. Do you?
If sharing was happening, what seating arrangment would you prefer?
1. I went to an eye doctor and a regular doctor yesterday. The eye doctor gave me prescription eye drops and said to put them in, wait five minutes, then I could wear my contacts. The PHARMACIST said to not wear my contacts while I was on these eyedrops. Also, I talked to another doctor yesterday about my heartburn from hell, and he told me to ignore the packaging on my zantac and take as many as I want (when the packaging says "maximum dosage 2 tablets daily").
Do I listen to the doctor, or the pharmacist/packaging?
2. Introverted mothers - how do you do it? I worry about having a kid because I love my alone time. How do you survive balancing those two things?
I've had an LG Cosmos with Verizon for a few months and it's breaking down, obsolete and all that. Smartphones are cool but I don't have the money to pay for either the phone or any sort of plan.
My question to you is, what is a good Verizon dumbphone that's not too pricey? (I'm not really looking for any specfic specs other than a keyboard.)
dk/dc: what phone do you use right now? How do you like smart phones? what's your favourite app?
I really want to get my kid the superhero costume he loves but it is $50 and maybe I am seriously out of date but isn't that a ton for something they wear for 1 night?! That wasn't even the most expensive one there! I haven't done any kind of costume in more than 10 years.
ETA: I know a question about protein shakes was asked a few days ago but I have a little different twist. My midwife recommends a high protein shake as a meal replacement during labor, since I might not be able to chew real food or feel like eating. I don't want to buy one of those huge tubs of protein powder just for this one day. Is there somewhere I can get just enough to make 2 or 3 shakes? Will you share your favorite protein shake recipe?
ETA2: I don't like the pre-made shakes. I was hoping to disguise the protein in a smoothie or something.
I can't live with my grandparents because I felt overwhelmed living with them before, and my dad's family is controlling and they treat me like I'm a little kid and put so much pressure on me, like my dad always did. Not to mention he abused and neglected me (physically and emotionally) and his family is always on his side. I don't have any friends I could live with either.
How can I move out when I have only $25 on me, no place to go, and no job (Been trying to get one for a while, but nobody wants me, probably because I don't have much experience and I've been out of work too long)? I'm desperate!
Have any of you ever felt this way?
I'm look for simple, solid colored v-neck or deep scoop neck short-sleeved tees. Simple enough, but the thing is, I feel like at every store they're thin, shapeless, and the material is too flimsy/gets stretched out. I need them to be shape-hugging, and preferably with some resliency in the fabric so they're not all blousy and ew within an hour. This probably sounds so stupid...like, short sleeved shirts are everywhere but wth, do they not make basic versions of them in better material? Do you know where I can find what I'm looking for?
I could not increase my one time max lift in the gym today. What do I do now?
dk/dc: Is there something/someone on your nerves right now? what is it?
I really would like to make a tomato cucumber salad but I don't think just that will satiate me. Any suggestions to serve with it?
Also, any other ideas for the same types of lunches? Make a meal and dole it out for 3+ days? Mostly healthy lunch ideas are preferred :)
I recently stumbled upon this leave-in condition with keratin in it. I remember a year or so ago there was a big stink being made about salon-grade keratin treatments (Brazilian blowouts) containing dangerous levels of formaldehyde.
The leave-in conditioner surely doesn't have formaldehyde in it, does it?
I recently went to the 3rd wedding that wasn't mine held in the same location (a small, local restaurant, oddly enough. Clearly the venue is awesome) and have been comparing the experiences in my brain. Mine at least wasn't the one with the DJ who kept changing his mind about songs every 10 seconds and leaving long swaths of silence, or the one where the best man and the maid of honor got into a screaming match over cigars (after he rebuffed her advances to instead try and hook up with the groom's step-sister).
