  • Manicure/Pedicure in Makati City?

    I am currently in Makati City and looking to get my nails done. Where is there a reasonably priced, but good nail salon to go that is near the Greenbelt and Landmark? Operating hours would be helpful too as I work at night.

  • International travel?

    This might sound like a dumb question, but bear with me because I've never traveled internationally before and I can't seem to find the answer anywhere online.

    I will be traveling from the US to the Philippines and will have to connect in another country before I get there. I won't be changing airlines, just planes, and my stop will likely be in Tokyo or Seoul.

    The question is this: when I stop in either of those countries, will I have to go back through customs or collect my bags at any point? Or do I just proceed from one gate to the next like I've done with a domestic connection?

    I'm completely clueless as to how this works, so thanks for bearing with me.

  • Tax Rebate & Innocent Spouse?

    My husband owes back child support which means that each year when we file our joint tax return, I also file for innocent spouse relief. We live in Washington, which is a community property state, so we always get back half of the refund - for example, if we were to get $1000, we'd get $500 and the other $500 would be applied to his child support obligation.

    Anyway, with these rebates coming up, how do we stand? We've already filed our 2007 tax return and the innocent spouse forms, so does the innocent spouse filing affect the rebate?

    And if so, how much? We are due to get a $1500 rebate (we have one child together), so would they take a full half - $750 - or just my husband's portion - $600?

    I just want some freaking money, honestly. :)

  • Old PS1 Game - Can't remember the title!?

    So, there was this PS1 game that a friend of mine had way back in the day. We used to play it ALL the time, but I can't remember the name. It was a logic game that consisted of your "guy" on top of blocks, which were mapped out in a grid. The blocks would fall off or you could arrange for them to fall off in specific patterns.

    I can't remember much more than that, but if anyone remembers this game and could tell me the name, that would ROCK.

  • Cancelling Club Pogo?

    I want to cancel my monthly Club Pogo subscription, but I have about 50 gems that I bought and paid for. Will I lose these or will Pogo credit me in some fashion?

    Also, if I reinstate my membership later will I get things back, like the mini outfits and badges?

    Thanks in advance - I've scoured Pogo's FAQ and can't find anything about this.

  • Favorite song lyric?

    I'm not talking about whole lyrics, but just those little bits in the song that make you sit up and go, "Woah, that's some cool **** right there."

    For me, right now it's this bit from "Swan Dive," by Ani DiFranco.

    "Cuz I don't care if they eat me alive

    I've got better things to do than survive

    I've got the memory of your warm skin in my hands

    And I've got a vision of blue sky and dry land"

    What's yours?

  • Courtesy Flush?

    Scenario: You're in the bathroom at work, school or some other public restroom. You have to unleash something fierce, you know it. You silently curse yourself for having coffee, greasy pizza and egg salad for lunch. Do you do a courtesy flush or are you too embarrassed to even do that, for fear that they figure out it's YOU in there making the place smell like a dairy farm?

  • How do you choose a best answer?

    How do YOU choose a best answer? I ask this because I've seen many many questions where a great and absolutely spot on answer was given, but the one picked for best answer was something flaky and without much thought. I'm just wondering how everyone else out here in Y/A world does this.

    And no, I'm not bitter about my answers not being picked, but it's raised some interesting thoughts when I know for a fact that my answer is correct and someone picks a wrong answer as the best one because it's maybe what they wanted to hear. I've also seen some beautifully thought out and well-researched answers get thumbed down.

    Food for thought!

  • Air travel with children - sippy cups?

    I'm an experienced air traveler, but I have never traveled with my daughter before. I'm prepared for what I know security will be like (take off the shoes, pull out the laptop, etc.), but does anyone know from experience whether or not one can take an empty sippy cup through security? I don't plan to fill it up until after we pass the checkpoint, but I would prefer to bring one with us so that we don't have to deal with any possible messes either at the airport or during the flight.

    I could not find anything specific to this on the TSA or Department of State's website, so if you can tell me from experience or can point me to a reputable online source, it would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

  • Disneyland/California Adventure Ride Cameras?

    I know that Splash Mountain and Tower of Terror both have cameras in them that take photos of you while you're on a pivotal part of the ride. Are there any other attractions, at either Disneyland or California Adventure, that offer this?

  • Itchy, Bug-Bitey Feet!?

    I went camping this weekend and my feet and lower legs ended up covered in itchy bug bites. If I keep scratching, I'll rub my skin raw. The spray-on Benadryl isn't working, though, and I'm slowly losing my mind with the itch.

    What are your tried-and-true remedies for getting the itch to stop?

  • Collections - Is this a legally binding practice?

    I often get telephone calls for someone who had my number previously. This woman obviously owes people money. Most of the calls are when I am not at home and they are forced to leave a message - some are automated, some are not. Either way, I get many messages along this vein:

    "This message is for Renee Reynolds. If you are not Renee Reynolds, do not listen to the rest of this message. By listening to the rest of this message, you admit that you are Renee Reynolds and are responsible for this matter."

    Is this truly legally binding? I'm not actually worried that I'll be saddled with her debt, but I'm curious as to what the rationale is for leaving a message such as this.

    I'm thinking about leaving a similar message on my voicemail that informs callers that by continuing to leave a message, they admit that they realize they are not reaching Renee Reynolds and that I am not responsible for her student loan or credit card debt. Would this be legally binding if the above is?
