    What's your favourite Red Hair colour?

    Henna is still my color of choice. After using it for so long though, my curls have been smoothed out. I want long, curly, red hair and it seems I can have long and curly but not red, or long and red but not curly, or curly and red but not long! :D So I cut it all off and am now back to...

    Show us the food dishes you've prepared.

    Crock Pot is actually a trademarked name that is used, like Kleenex is for tissue or Xerox is for photocopying, for slow cookers. They most likely named it crock pot as the inside was a stoneware, crockery pot type liner to hold the food. Here's the wiki article if you really want to know...

    Miss, Mrs. or Madam? The demise of Ms?

    My German SIL, before she became my SIL, at first always called my mom Mrs. M---. My mom asked my brother why Sabine always called her that, and my brother said it was because my mom hadn't given Sabine "the du". As in French, in German when you spoke to an older/respected/etc person, you used...

    Oscar Nominations

    At least he has a sense of humor about it. :) "It's about time narcissistic, accolade-seeking idiotic actors were formally recognized," Downey deadpans about his nomination, speaking from the Brooklyn, N.Y., set of "Sherlock Holmes." "It's been a long, hard road for us."

    Vintage Phones

    The revival of this thread sent me looking again, and I was watching that auction. I would have bid on it, as I think $132 was a good price, but there wasn't a ringer box, and I'd would have had to have the guy at PhoneQuest refinish it and maybe get a box from him or on eBay, which would be...

    Violinist in the Metro

    Nope. :) More from that article: ...the Evening Post's story -- the brainchild of Michael W. Straus, the paper's brash young city editor -- was a one-day minor curiosity. Mine, kept alive and aloft by the might of the Web, went global. I'm sitting here looking at my Pulitzer Prize, which...

    Hats and hairdo's?

    Arrange your hair according to the type of hat you'll be wearing, then put the hat on and keep it there. Ladies don't remove their hats until they get home. :)

    Personal Coat Hanger/Key Tray Standing Thing...

    Bertie was a bachelor living in basically an apartment, however. There wasn't room nor enough for a butler and a valet to do. Bertie Wooster has lent Jeeves out as a butler on several occasions, and notes that "if the call comes, he can buttle with the best of them". (according to Wiki). :)

    I agree that the actors should not have a German accent. In the movie The Last Emperor, when the Chinese characters were speaking in Chinese, unaccented English was used. When they were speaking in English, accented English was used.

    Alright, dumb question...

    But Is there something (wire??) in the brim that allows it to snap into place? Or is the felt just stiff enough that the brim keeps the shape you put it by itself?

    Steve & Barrys - Going Out Of Business Sale: Lots for Cheap

    Are they only closing some stores or the whole business? I looked on the locator, and the ones around me don't have the "closing soon" under the town name.

    I had heard David Tennant was out until the 5th of Jan because of his back surgery; is this correct? I also heard that the understudy is great.
