1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: 30th Birthday Ideas? on: October 24, 2006 08:58:57 AM
Ha! I'm turning 30 on 11/12! I looked in to having a party at a couple restaurants/bars, but it was going to be way too expensive to have food plus an open bar plus room rental. If you end up going out, I'd say to keep it small/simple.

Anyway, I've decided to do a "Turning 30 but Staying Young" kids-style party for grownups at my house. We're going to have kid food like PB&Js, pigs in a blanket, etc. and fun party games like Twister and a pinata. I think there's a thread for that somewhere on this board. This might be a good way for both the kiddies and the adults to have a good time. Good luck and happy birthday!

Hee hee! I might just have to steal the idea too. I wonder if fishing line would work to hold the syringe in place. It would be nearly invisible, especially at night. Might have to play around with that this weekend. If I figure out a good solution, I'll post it.

I wish I could find a better picture, but last year I was Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction. I won a crapload of contests and had SOOOO much fun. Not pictured is the hair (I cut and dyed it black - from BLONDE) and even had a little smudge of white on my nose for the herion-thought-coke

That is so freaking cool! How did you do the syringe?
4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Best adhesives to use on skin? on: October 19, 2005 09:00:24 AM
I want to attach some rubber bugs to my skin this year ala Martha.


What's the best adhesive to use for this? Eyelash glue? Spirit gum? Super glue? The first two seem too flimsy and super glue kind of scares me.
5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: alfredo sauce on: September 15, 2005 11:01:16 AM
Here's the easiest and best alfredo sauce recipe ever. Not low cal, but it sure is good.

1 cup heavy cream
1 cup grated parmesan (use the real deal here)
1 stick butter

In a large pan, melt the butter, add the cream and stir in parmesan. Toss with cooked pasta and serve immediately. Voila! That's it. Yum!
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: "_____ in a box" gift ideas. on: February 09, 2005 05:51:03 AM
I'm thinking about making a "Wedding Day Survival" in a box, and I want to include some practical stuff and some fun stuff, but right now I have a lot of practical and not so much with the fun. Also, this is for a supervisor at work, so I can't really do anything too racy.

Here's what I've got so far:

little sewing kit
safety pins
bobby pins
Lip Smackers lip gloss
waterproof mascara
breath mints
energy drink
travel-size tissues
temporary tatoo in her wedding colors
luggage tags

Any of you crafty people out there have other suggestions?
7  Florida / Florida: North / Re: anyone in Gainesville? on: February 08, 2005 07:22:39 AM
I live in Gainesville, and I just discovered Crafts 'N Stuff. It's near Circuit City and Home Depot on Tower Road. This is my new favorite craft store in town. They don't have much fabric, but their selection of decorative paper and other crafty items puts Michael's and Joann's to shame.
8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: weight loss on the go on: February 03, 2005 08:25:08 AM
I love to have smoothies for a lo-cal breakfast or snack, but I don't like to wake up earlier than I have to. So the night before, I cut up all the fruit (or just use frozen), throw it into the blender, add some fat free yougurt and let it sit in the fridge overnight. (***If you use bananas, they might turn a little brown, but who cares since you're going to blend it up anyway.) Then the next morning, I just add some oj or skim milk and some ice cubes, whizz the whole thing up and enjoy.
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Super Bowl party ideas?????? on: February 03, 2005 08:16:40 AM
On Sunday I'm serving baked ziti, meatballs with sauce, sub rolls (for meatball subs), tomato-basil-mozzarella skewers, brownies and some kind of chips/dip. My plan is to put the meatballs into the crock pot so they stay hot for muching all day. Cheap and easy--most of the food can be made ahead of time.
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Seven Deadly Sins Gift Sets..Help! on: February 01, 2005 11:09:08 AM
I'm doing a Seven Deadly Sins gift set for the boy for V-Day. Here's what I'm including:

Wrath: I'm going Italian-style here with a Soprano's triva game (he's a big fan of the show)
Pride: A desktop mirror that I decoupaged with a collage of cut-up photos of him and I
Envy: Green M&Ms
Lust: Sexy undies
Greed: A big wad of $1 bills (I'm not totally thrilled with this one, so I'd welcome other ideas)
Sloth: Blockbuster giftcard
Gluttony: Chocolate truffles

Anybody know where I can find some cool deadly sins art to decorate the box with?
