Have you tried using a menstral cup, like the DivaCup?  I have been using mine for a while now, and it is fantastic- good for the enviroment, cheap for me ($35 once, as opposed to 10 years worth of pads and tampons) and I only have to empty it 2-3 times a day.  You might want to look into a menstral cup.

I like the extentions- they really frame your face, though I like your real hair cut as well. 
23  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Recipie for Shaving Cream? on: June 06, 2006 09:48:38 AM
I use conditioner, on the basis that it is going to condition my legs.  I also figure the plastic bottles it comes in are easier to recycle than the cans shaving cream comes in.  And of course, I try to buy the huge bottles of cheap conditioner (think $1 for Sauve) which saves lots of money compared to shaving cream. 
24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: X-RATED CROCHET....Danger Phallus's ahead...{Now with pattern} Ornament Added! on: September 22, 2005 10:09:13 PM
I have a job where I basically do nothing.  In order to shield myself the ennui, I have taken to crocheting pink penises.  At last count, I have three, and am working on a larger one with balls for a purse (it's going to be a great suprise present for someone!)  They have provided hours of amusement. 

Anyone else have a lot of fun telling people what they are doing?  I know I was sitting on a couch at school, next to my friend and across from a stranger.  We all were quiet.  Then I whipped out the pattern and said, "Let me show you the penis I am going to make."  I got the best look ever.  Such a good conversation starter!

And what a way to freak out a new roommate!

Zombie_Teeth- Should you happen to have the time, I would love to see the handcuff necklace! 
26  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: So ANGRY! WalMart ripping up and throwing out NEW unused patterns! on: August 20, 2005 09:16:52 AM
Not exactly the topic, but in response to the replies about food:

I work for a national grocery store, and every morning, we throw out carts of old bread, meat, and cheese.  Through out the day, fruit that spoils gets mulched into the sewer system (at least, that's where I think it goes).  I asked my several department heads and the store manager why we don't mark it down or donate it.  Basically, mark-downs train customers to wait until the last day.  Donations, while nice in theory, could lead to a down-and-out shelter person suing the co-operation for giving them food that is bad.  This is why we don't mark down/give away the fresh stuff.

As for the cans, we can give back some of the broken/returned/unboxed stuff that goes out of code or is damaged.  Some companies give full refunds; Coke, Pepsi, Butternut, Dole, or partial refunds.  However, some companies (including our own store brand) do not give any refunds so we mark them down and try to sell them (unless they are past code; then we have to throw them out).  Despite being an up-scale grocery store in a rich neighborhood (these people spend $3.99 on ice cream treats made for dogs!) we still sell through these damaged/discontinued items. 

It does seem like a waste, but the company spends thousands upon thousands of dollars just sorting out court cases with employees with real/faked injuries and customers with real/faked cart-on-car damage.  There just isn't more money to throw at the possible lawsuits from people who get sick from out of code food.  This is especially true when customers want things cheap (blame Wal-Mart, the economy, Bush) but our employees are union.  They have to save money somewhere...

It's importnat to remember, as others have suggested, that when you fill out the paperwork, you agree to follow their policies. 

As for all the body mods, I look at it this way: no one is forcing you to get them.  By getting them, you take on the responsibility to take care of them, to keep the bandages on for X number of days, and to realize that you are limiting yourself, right or wrong.  For instance, my friend's boyfriend wants to become a cop, and get about 7 more tattoos, but he know that if he gets them on his lower arms, he will have to wear a long sleeve shirt whenever he is at work, even in the summer.  It's not necessarily right, but such is life.  If you work for a corporation, it's the same thing, and even if you work for a small business (as I believe Steph suggested) you have to follow the rules. 

It reminds me of this debate over at slate regarding relgion at the workplace: http://slate.com/id/2120789

In other news, my mom works at JoAnn's, she hates it, but they get cheaper machine repairs as well as a free crafting class every quarter.  I work in the retail business too; I am not suited to it, but I signed up for it, so I simply grit my teeth and focus on the nice customers and cool co-workers. 

Good luck!  Get a campus job in college; they are better, but you will soon learn a job is a job and they usually will suck in some way.

How terrible!  I am so sorry to hear about that- I know fire terrifies me.  I am afraid I have no solutions, other than googling, but I have to say that is terrible.

I have to agree.  When making sexy dice, one must decide what she wants done to her.

For ideas, though, I am sure you can look at any non-tacky sex store and look them up: Good Vibrations, Early 2 Bed, and BabesinToyland probably all have them. 

What are you making them out of?  Wood?

They are cute!  I would love to do this, but to be honest my knitting skills are pretty much: scarf, scarf, potholder.  What are the requirements to make the bear?
