Do you go by a nickname more than your given name? Even just a shortened version?
If you do, do you find it offensive or annoying when someone uses your given name instead of the nickname you go by?

"Cronut inventor Dominique Ansel is enticing sweet tooths once again with a new invention. The New York pastry chef has created something called the chocolate chip cookie milk shot... A shot glass made of a chocolate chip cookie, filled with milk.

1. Would you try the chocolate chip cookie milk shot?

2. Have you ever had a cronut*?

*A cronut is "a croissant-doughnut pastry". Picture behind cut.

Would you rather have a tidy house that was a little less clean, or a clean house that was a little less tidy?

My husband and I spent his day of cleaning the house. To me, this meant cleaning things like windows and backwashes and mopping the floor. To my husband, this meant organising things like the shoe rack. I don't care so much if things are a little bit untidy, but my husband feels like it's chaos. I hate dirty things like a ring around the bath but my husband doesn't notice.

Does Juno have Asperger's?

I was thinking about the movie Juno, and suddenly wondered if the character Juno has Asperger's syndrome. Clues: She wanted to find out what sex was like, so she emotionlessly picked out Paulie to try it with. She overshares. She mostly doesn't have emotional connections with people.

Whaddya think? Am I on to something?

Those of you who rent, how much do you clean before a house inspection?

Those of you who don't rent (and those who do if you want to answer multiple questions), who are the people coming into your house that you feel you have to go to the greatest lengths to impress? What, other than the cleanliness/tidiness of your house do you worry that people might judge, if anything?

My friend mentioned last week:

"Sitting is the new smoking"

Do you think this is true?

Inspired to write this post because I'm watching a woman chain smoke AND sit on her balcony.

For Pinterest users:

I use Pinterest pretty regularly to promote my Etsy shop and look for ideas.  I probably pin about 50-70 items a week.

I've noticed that while my average pin is repinned maybe once or twice, if at all, every once in a while, one of them gets a LOT of attention.  In the most recent case, my pin was repinned over 500 times in less than 24 hours.  I don't really see anything that special about these particular pins.

Does anyone know why this happens?

Does it have something to do with an algorithm?

Did it get repinned by a really popular pinner, thus increasing its exposure?

Is there a way to do it on purpose?

So my newly ex-boyfriend seems to have finally accepted we're not together.
However he texted me saying he has a surprise for me and it will be ready in a couple of weeks.
What the hell?
