We use Google calendar to schedule appointments where I work. I share my calendar with two other people, and have been tasked with finding an alert system to remind of us upcoming client birthdays in time for us to send them a card in the mail. For various reasons, my boss (with whom I share the calendar) wants an actual alert tone to sound (he doesn't like the email reminders or desktop pop-ups). I considered using Outlook's calendar instead since it will actually sound a little alarm, but as far as I can tell, there's no way to set those alerts and share them-- each of us would have to individually go through and set desired alerts for every single client's birthday. Ugh.

Is there a better calendar system for me to use to do this, or some way to make Google do what I want it to do?

dk/dc/this is so boring: what are your plans this weekend?

I'm looking to buy a swimsuit, but having a heck of a time finding one that fits. All the suits I've seen around here seem to be made for smaller cup sizes, and no matter what size I try on, I always find myself spilling out on top. Do you know of anywhere that sells cute swimwear that has good coverage and support for bustier individuals?

A brick-and-mortar store where I could try them on would be great, but if you know of any websites with good customer service, I'd be happy with that too! I just want to be able to go swimming this year in something other that a t-shirt.

Sports and cheating

I should start by saying I'm really very ignorant about sports; I don't play them, I don't watch them, I don't really have any interest in them. I went to a hockey match earlier this year, and I've caught some snippets of soccer games during the world cup, but my knowledge about them is _extremely_ limited.

My question is, in which sports does cheating get you instantly disqualified, and in which is it more or less expected if not accepted?

What would you do - cat edition

I have two cats, Luna is 9 or 10 years old and Memphis is about 1 year old. Memphis is a rescue kitten that I found in November and I wonder if part of the issue is her not being socialized properly.

When Luna was a kitten I got her declawed in her front paws. I've since learned that this isn't necessarily humane for cats. However, Memphis is really dominating Luna and uses claws when they get into fights. I just found a bloody scab on Luna's head. It's really frustrating because I want Luna to be the head cat (though I guess I don't know if cats really work that way?). Plus I don't want Luna to get hurt or Memphis to be "unnecessarily mutilated." It's getting to the point where I don't know if I can have Memphis anymore because of this though this makes me cry. :(

So, would you declaw Memphis? I know that there are nail caps but I don't think Memphis would be cooperative with those at all because I can barely trim her nails without a fight. Thoughts?
