Reminds me of that picture of Salvador Dali with the cats and water flying through the air.
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Question about cloth pads on: December 09, 2008 10:11:42 PM
I think a lot of women are confused about the whole "menstrual fluid smell" issue. While menstrual fluid does have a smell it is very subtle...like the smell of blood. What we are smelling when we use disposable plastic pads is actually the fluid reacting to the chemicals in the pad and the sweat that is created by wearing what is basically a plastic sheet in your pants. Think about it this way; ever noticed how sweaty and icky you get when you wear a polyester shirt? Much better to wear a cotton shirt right? Well the same thing goes for your Vag ladies.
Most of the cloth pad companies out there do use PUL or a breathable nylon (<---better IMO) as a barrier to prevent leaks but wifeofbath is right, its not necessary as long as you are changing the pad often enough.
I also have to throw in my vote for the DivaCup, I use it as well as cloth pads. The Keeper is made from latex so it will break down faster than the DivaCup and a lot of people are actually allergic to latex.

Question: Was is very hard to refinish the floors?
I love in an apartment that was built in the 20's and our floors are horrible. I've taken more than one 2 inch long splinters off of them.
What is the process like?

8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone cut their own hair? on: January 11, 2008 07:11:56 PM
I have been cutting my hair since I was 16, thats 8 years now. I also cut most of my friends hair, my parents,  neighbours, I've even had total strangers ask if I would cut their hair so I guess I am okay at it. I am lucky to have a bathroom mirror that swings out on either side so I can see the back while I cut it. I am actually a big fan of using a razor, especially if you want layers or a more piecey ,thinned out look. Its really easy to use and it blends really well so you don't end up with big noticeable cuts. I don't find any problems with split ends, you just need to make sure the blade is sharp.
The biggest piece of advice I could impart would be to make sure you aren't taking to much hair in one cut. pick up hair in small sections from the same place on your head. If you pick up hair from too large an area and cut it, it well all end up being different lengths.
Its also useful to know how to separate the hair to cut it. For the back take all the hair from ear to ear over the top of your head. then divide that in half from the tip of one ear across the back to the other ear. Take the hair above the ears and pin it up so you can cut whats underneath. After you've cut the bottom let down the top and follow the guideline that you have created while cutting the bottom.
The front is easier cause you can see better and there's less hair to deal with.

Oh and the staggered scissors you are referring to, kjlutz, are actually thinning shears
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: wtf is a slipstitch? on: November 06, 2007 03:50:18 PM
'Kay this is gonna be hard to describe without you actually seeing it but here goes:
Basically you would fold over the edges of the opening to the inside and press it so you have two edges to stitch together. Now you would stick your needle into one of the folds and bring it back out about a 1/4 inch further along that same edge. Then stick the needle into the opposite folded edge and bring it back out another 1/4 inch along.
hmm does that make any sense at all??

Wow, when I first saw this picture I thought it was some crazy tentacled monster afghan. Its actually really beautiful and I love the size of the cables. I don't think I have ever seen cables that big before.
