Vonage Anyone?

Do you have this? For home or your mobile phone or even both? Do you like it?

I have a landline still, and when I move I will want one so I can keep tabs on my kid when he's home alone. I don't want to rely only on my cell phone but I don't want to pay the high cost of regular phones either.

(my first post here so thank you everyone!)

Vegan treats

My friend is having a tough time at the moment. I'd like to send her a card and some treats. My normal choice for such occasions is Cadbury's buttons or little animal biscuits. Something fun, easy to post and yummy. Problem is, she's vegan. What can I send her? I know she likes Marzipan Ritter Sport (but I don't think I can get them here) and rice cakes (bit bulky for posting). I'm in the UK, I can get to a supermarket and possibly a heath food shop.

This is kind of an emergency question. I'm panicking and have no idea what my next step should be.

3 days ago I was prescribed cipro for a very mild UTI at a walk-in urgent care clinic. My doctor told me it wasn't a very hardcore medication, not to worry, it should clear me up right away. Last night I started getting extreme hand numbness and muscle weakness, couldn't make a fist or pick anything up. This morning I called the clinic after researching side effects and it turns out cipro has a huge history of fucking up people's nerves and muscle tone.

The nurse simply told me to discontinue (I have) and see if the UTI comes back. My hands continue to feel weak and I can't do ANYTHING without dropping objects, feeling tingling/numbness/inability to grab anything.

The internet is filled with horror stories about this drug, permanent effects from only taking one or two doses, bad effects happening AFTER the course of meds has been completed, etc.

My question is WHAT KIND OF DOCTOR DO I CALL AND HOW DO I FIND THEM? I have no idea if I should go to an ER or a hospital or how to find the right person to look at this. I'm sorry if this comes across as really stupid but I'm having extreme anxiety right now and I rarely if ever go to doctors, don't have a primary care physician, etc. and my hands are so weak I can barely type, drive, pick up phone, etc.

#1 What would be the first line you'd write down if you were filling out a profile on an Internet dating site?

#1.5 Have you ever used one? Which one and what did you like about it?

#2 What is your favorite song performed by an actor? Could be part if a soundtrack or as part of a solo album.

When you order an ice cream/shake/other sized treat, what size do you order?  What about coffee?

Brought to you by the fact that when we get icecream for a treat, my husband, son, and I usually share a small icecream and we all get plenty but some people thinking it strange that we don't all get our own.  But none of us ever wants/needs that much sweet, especially after a meal!

This is such an absurd question, but how do people meet new people? How do you meet new people?

I'm in grad school, and I'm unsure how to branch out from my school circle and meet new friends (and prospective SOs, I guess). I'm probably too busy to join a club/group or volunteer right now, and I'm not huge on bars. I'm also not the biggest fan of meeting people from the internet. (I'm kind of out of options then, right? Haha.) If it's pertinent, I'm also pretty damn shy.
