    Can someone please find a Hammond quote for me?

    Hey, everyone. inb4 "JFGI": I did. Google has not been forthcoming. I'm working on a paper and find myself short a source. I have the source at home, but I'm stuck on campus for several hours and really don't want to slow my roll, so . . . . In one of his books, Hammond refers to listening to...

    The U.S. military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy is officially repealed as of today. It's also my big gay best friend's birthday. I love that. :-)

    East coast earthquake: who just felt it?

    I felt it and thought it was super fun. (Disclaimer: I might be a geology student.) I was in a ground-floor classroom about 87 miles from the epicenter with a geology nerd friend. When the shaking started, we looked at each other, eyes alight. We don't get earthquakes here, so it was sooooper...

    No it doesn't. It loves pillowcases and wants to be their friend. The same goes for towels, shower curtains, and bathroom tile. Manic Panic loves everything! Wonder of wonders, my white pillowcase is still completely white this morning! :lol: I won't be dying the rest of my weave, that's for...

    First, a disclaimer: I am not vain about my hair. My hair is long, thick, and curly. Put another way, it is entirely its own entity, an entity which enjoys riding around on top of my head. Every couple of days I wash it, put some stuff in it, and hope for the best. I don't bother with stylish...

    Hair or body first when showering?

    Awww. Poor ashspet. You have my hair. The only difference is that mine takes longer to dry in summer, because our summers are stupid humid. Power, sister! And yes, start at the top and work down. But it seems I'm doing something wrong. 1. Shampoo 2. Rinse shampoo 3. Conditioner; comb through...

    What's the nicest thing a stranger's ever done for you?

    This exact question was posted on Reddit and I'm totally ganking it. This is me being up front about stuff. So! What's the nicest thing a stranger's ever done for you? I'll lead off with three nice things because I can't choose just one. In chronological order: When I was 19, I missed a...

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    I went snorkeling around a coral reef off Key West yesterday, and it was horribly bleached. (That is, increasingly acidic ocean waters are killing off the colorful wee polyps and leaving behind a dreary cement-colored skeleton.) See? That definitely annoys me, but I'm not trying to start a...

    I'm on vacation in Florida right now. I'm sort of bumming aimlessly around with a buddy from back home. I've been here a little over a week. Spent one night in Orlando, drove down to meet said buddy in south FL, and just got back to south FL last night from a couple days in Key West. Tomorrow...

    Where In The World Is..?

    Awww, shucks! Life kind of blew up, as it tends to do. Sent husband off to Afghanistan (contractor, not military), did a bit of traveling, finally started college and had to work hard. The other night, a buddy googled this username looking for something on another site. He seems to have read...

    What is BBCA up to and why?

    I am going to do my very best to make this coherent, but it is likely that I will fail. Apologies in advance, everyone. Having had a tumultuous spring and summer, I've been out of the loop for a while. The other night I sat down to watch some good ol' Top Gear on good ol' BBC America, and I...

    :lol: <southern>Honey, you don't know the half of it.</southern> For a while there I was balancing five part time jobs that required different skill sets. I was doing them all because I liked them, too. I'd say my work ethic is in pretty good shape. Yes, grad school is definitely what I'm...

    God I hope they're all over. And I keep a close eye out for potential entanglements so that instead of taking me unawares they can be adeptly nipped in the bud. I am working to make sure I have time for fun stuff, even if it's just half an hour at the end of the day to read a book that has...

    Thanks, you guys. You've reassured me that I'm already on the right track, at least. Brydie, our classes don't break down into even numbers of credits; some are 1, some are 4, most are 3, some are 6, and so on. It's an irritating system. Full-time students usually take 12-15 credits in a...

    I'm two weeks into my first semester of college. I'm taking 18 credits, of which two are honors classes. I am intimidated by the amount of work I have to do in he next 14 weeks. Has anyone else been in a similar situation? I could use some encouragement. :\

    Need London Travel Advice

    Alas, my husband is a large man who doesn't fit comfortably into the seats on small, commuter-style planes. He once had to spend a flight from Paris to Amsterdam sort of hovering in the vicinity of his seat. He's not grossly obese or anything like that; he's just built to a slightly bigger...
