We are not weird here. [Jul. 4th, 2019|11:27 pm]
The Question Club

I have been away, so sorry; fell into a burning ring of fire and went down down down with the flames rising higher.

Returned to see someone calling us weird. I am offended and triggered, and generally deeply upset that such a comment would come from the land of Facebook.

So I'm going to ask a nice, normal question, to prove we are not weird.

Here goes:

If you fell off the edge of the world into space, would you eventually slow down, or keep going at the same speed, or just fall faster and faster until you burst into flame?

DK/DC -- Villanelle?

DK/DC -- Best song by the Chromatics?

The Question Club

A question for those of you with adult children who have children of their own: how much time/how many days do you spend with them in a month? If they are the children/grandchildren of your spouse but not yours, how much time do you spend with them in a month? Does your spouse spend time with them without you being present?

Tattoo questions [Jun. 28th, 2019|12:10 am]
The Question Club


I think tattoos are awesome, but I don't have any (yet). I've thought about it off and on for years but have never done anything about it. I have a MAJOR birthday (70!) Coming up in 2020, and it occurred to me that getting that long awaited ink could be a really cool way to commemorate it. I hve a couple of questions, though:

1. How much does it really hurt?
2. How much is it going to cost?

I'm not talking about anything huge, maybe about 2" x 3". The location I have in mind is my upper arm. (I want it to be where I can look at it myself, whenever I want.) I haven't chosen a particular image yet, but I want it to be something that will be eaningful to me as opposed to purely decorative (which leaves room for lots of possibilities), and I want it to be colorful.

I don't want to be like Phoebe in Friends and chicken out at the last minute, which is why I'm asking about the pain factor. I handle pain pretty well on the whole, especially if I have a reasonable idea of what to expect. The more info I have, the better!

I know the answer to the second question in particular may be impossible for anyone to answer, but even the vaguest ballpark guesstimate would be helpful.

Tia for any and all (positive) input.

Suggestions for a blog name & gardening tips [Jun. 24th, 2019|12:33 am]
The Question Club

Hi, all!
My husband and I recently got into gardening herbs and food. This is our first newlywed home project so maybe that explains the hype we have about it, please forgive us. I used to be -and still am!- content with the local farmers markets but we want to try our hand at this. Right now we're doing container planting on our patio because we rent and it's the basics 101; cucumbers, bush tomatoes, a variety of hot/bell peppers and beets to pickle, and herbs. Our yard is not the best when it comes to drainage..any heavy rain gives us a koi pond without fish in the back end and we know we're not ready for that headache. Our landlord gave us the go ahead for ground planting next year, tips on where she used to have veggie garden that didn't drown and where it absolutely won't work. So next year we're planning raised beds/containers and underground plants where she had had success. We also want to build a small DIY greenhouse just to see what happens..?
I'd like to create a blog that hopefully would gain traction with other newbie gardeners or those with difficult land, but mostly for him and I to look back on and have documentation of (and laughs about) our failures, struggles with bugs,and successes/harvest.
I'm struggling with a cute name, though. I mean, I guess it doesn't have to be "cute" since in the end it's just for us but THIS IS THE INSTAGRAM AGE, no?
Any help, tips on planting, garden planning, blog name suggestions, anything is welcomed.

For internet on line daters (or anyone really).
If you've been on a date or two with someone and you decide you dont want to see them again what do YOU do?
1. Tell them the painful truth? (You dress 1970s/You're bald/all your Star Wars figures creep me out/your profile is untrue)
2. Give them a polite  pretext? ( you live too far away/ our schedules arent compatible / I only date Capricorns)
3. Two dates??? Pfft I GHOST em. Loser.
4.  Text breakup

What are some IRL reasons you gave?
At what point do you owe them a face to face breakup?

School Fun Fair Playlist [Jun. 19th, 2019|09:19 pm]
The Question Club

Hey folks,

I've been charged with making the playlist for a fun fair my son's school is having. Hundreds of people of all ages, from 4 (or younger) to grandparents. I need about four hours of music and I'm about 75% of the way there. My taste's aren't super niche or anything but they certainly aren't pop...can you suggest any tunes for me? They have to have pretty inoffensive lyrics (that goes beyond simply not having cuss words in them - some mild suggestiveness is fine but overt sex or drug references are not so good). The more upbeat the better - so far a lot of pop music is pretty "down", and it's not a criticism, but it's a fun fair!

Bonus points to anyone who has kids that can suggest some of their favourite tunes for me!

So far I sorta have two kinds of songs:
1. Current-ish pop songs that at least some of the kids will be into. One Direction, Bieber, Imagine Dragons, some of Drake's clean songs, Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, etc. If there are any non-pop songs that are current that kids like (that aren't inappropriate) I'd love to hear them!

2. Older songs that most parents would probably like that kids probably wouldn't hate instantly. Queen, "Don't Stop Believin'", Destiny's Child, Stevie Wonder, Jackson 5, "Sweet Child o' Mine", "Are you Gonna Be My Girl", etc.

All suggestions welcome!

Help, it's dark in my oven [Jun. 19th, 2019|07:09 am]
The Question Club

No, that's not a euphemism. You know how, when you open the oven door, a light comes on? I just moved to a new apartment and the vintage Hotpoint range oven in this apartment is so old, there IS NO LIGHT. I don't mean it's burned out, I mean there's no socket for a light, nothing, it's just dark in there. Makes it hard to see if cookies are done etc. without pulling them out, which means losing heat out of the oven, waiting for it to come back to temperature etc. Naturally, there's also no window in the oven door, but just having a light shine down on the cookies when I crack the door open would be better than this.

I bake a lot, so it's important to me. How can I get some light in my oven?

I'm sorry [Jun. 13th, 2019|08:42 pm]
The Question Club


Do you find yourself apologizing for trivial things that arent your fault?
Are you from Canada? England? Are you always at fault? Are you clumsy?

Why do people do this???

Relationships... [Jun. 10th, 2019|06:53 am]
The Question Club

Hi Question Club!

I’m just curious. When looking for a significant other/relationship...

If you had the choice between a relationship that was safe and that you felt alright about, and something that made you feel alive and you feel completely drawn to but is more of a wild card (you don’t know what will happen)....

Which would you choose? Why?

How to Dutch Oven [Jun. 4th, 2019|06:17 am]
The Question Club

Hi friends, my old Dutch oven is now under the coffee table holding yarn. It was a non-stick dealie and the Teflon scratched over time.

I really need a new Dutch oven. My friends suggested that I get a Le Creuset one, but hoooooo I cannot drop hundreds of dollars on one.

Are there any alternatives out there that are just as good? It has to be NOT non-stick as these coatings can create gases that can poison pet birds.

Do you wear a "uniform"? (not work related) [May. 28th, 2019|09:02 pm]
The Question Club

Do you wear what might be consiered a uniform?

Like the same color or style shirt/blouse/top & the same color or style of pants/shorts/skirt every day (or most days)?

For example my late father for the last 10-15 years of his life wore a denium blue shirt & blue jeans nearly every day in the spring/summer & a red plaid flannel shirt with a white t-shirt under it & blue jeans in the winter.

And he had to have a cap of some sort, first it was olive green ones from the Army/Navy surplus store & then later some kind of ball cap, on his head before he left the house for even a moment for as long as I could remember.

I'm wondering if there are any bicycle enthusiasts in this group. I want to buy a nice women's bike that can handle terrain but not cost oodles and oodles of money. I'm thinking $300-400 max. If it's unrealistic, yell at me. Just recommend me some bikes if you know any?

So my sisters and I, along with their kids are going to tea at the Ritz. You have to dress up which isn't something I generally am into so I figured I would at least do something a bit unique but not over the top since I'm also not one to draw attention to myself.

So because I like the style, I'm planning to buy a retro style skirt, this is the one I was looking at: https://www.amazon.com/Tandisk-Vintage-Printed-Pleated-Pockets/dp/B07J2M7G2C/ref=pd_ybh_a_8?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=1SW0560EMH9YRQWFEZQQ and wear a simple black shirt with it. Now, with it, I want to wear either plain neutral colored tights and a pair of converse (low) with little skulls on it OR black tights with leg bones and nicer shoes.

Poll #2092804 tea time

Which should I do?

bone tights
BOTH bone tights AND Converse
Somethng else, I will comment
bitch, just be normal
