New question: What is the scariest movie you've ever seen, and what made it so scary? Was it because of how old you were, or where you were watching it?

edit: seems like it should be okay! we'll find out tomorrow. thanks! I'm hoping there are some iPhone savvy people here...I just updated my mom's iPhone 4 to iOS7, since I promised her that I could do "reduced motion," a concern she had since she's vision impaired. I even showed her on mine (iPhone 4s) how to access the screen to turn it on/off, etc. and she seemed content with the update and told me to go ahead and do it. Now that it's updated, I went to Settings > General > Accessibility...only there is no reduce motion option on hers. It's like it knew I wanted to enable it...so it's not there at all. Any ideas? Does it sound like a failed load, and I just need to retry?

Thanks for any help!

Have you ever done a complete lifestyle overhaul with regards to changing the way you eat and getting into a regular exercise routine (and sustaining it)?

I keep half-assing "healthy" routines in order to lose weight -- I've lost big chunks of weight several times now only to fall back into old habits and put it back on -- and it's getting old. I want to change how I live; not just to lose weight, but to be more healthy and fit overall. It seems like such a daunting task though!

1. Would you recommend a book or story featuring a feline?
I recommend: A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen

2. Today, a nearby church will be blessing animals in honor of St. Francis.
Have you ever had a pet blessed?

3. Have you ever seen a service cat?

What about any other service animals of the non-canine variety?
Or notable stories featuring some (dogs, etc.)

Tech question.... sorry.

For mac and iphone users - Is it possible to airdrop between my mac laptop and my iphone? Both say they have airdrop available, but I can't seem to share between either of them. Any suggestions?

I'm making blue cheese buckwheat cornbread muffins. They also have scallions. What flavors for a meaty dish would go well with them? I have jalapeno chicken sausage, chicken breasts, and ground beef. I just want some complementary flavors or spices or whatever that would taste good... no too fancy recipes.

Thanks :)

So there is this local ice cream shop that we go to with our kids every Sunday.
My husband "likes" them on Facebook. Today, he noticed an entry regarding the US Gov't shutdown. But we're both perplexed as to what side they really fall on.

Can you take a look and decipher it for us?

Here is the Facebook page. The entry in question is on the left, just slightly scrolled down. It includes a picture of an empty sundae dish.

Has anyone had a dry socket before? What was the whole experience like as far as pain and getting it taken care of?

I'm due for several teeth pulling this coming Friday and I'm not worried about the actual procedure, but getting dry socket. And yes, I'm a smoker (yeah, I know, I know, I should quit ...)

What are some date ideas that are cheap/free? (assuming it's someone you have only just started seeing)

Have you ever been in the position where you or your partner earned significantly more than the other? Did it raise any problems? How did you work things out?

When life gives you lemons...

I have a very very hazy memory of an old book I read a long time ago having a box of lemon shaped soaps in it. It wasn't a feature of the story (that I remember) just something incidental. This memory just won't go away and it's really irritating me.

I sort of feel it's in a book of a similar feel to the Katy books by Susan Coolidge, although that might be because in those there's a scene where they put a soap on a hat.

Does anyone know what I'm on about? Does it ring any bells?

When you're writing, do you put horizontal lines through your 7's, z's and/or 0's? If you do, have you always written them that way, or is it something you chose to start doing to avoid confusion in the form of you or other people mistaking them for 1's, 2's or o's, respectively? Maybe this is a regional thing? Where are you from?

Do you write more in cursive or print? Do you type or write by hand more? How legible would you say your handwriting is, both cursive and print? What is your favorite type of writing implement? Least favorite?

Inspired by tralfamadore's handwriting post, obviously!

What are your own personal experiences in progressing from just dating someone to boyfriend&girlfriend status? My last boyfriend pretty much asked outright if we were a couple or not but I'm not confident enough to start that conversation myself

If you had a $25 gift card to Sephora, what would you buy?

If you had a $25 gift card to Pottery Barn, what would you buy?

Assume you're happy to spend a few extra bucks for something at either place but aren't looking to spend $500 to burn a $25 gift card.

Which of these have you felt in the last week?
