My shoe of choice for going out at night/dressing up a little is my plain black flip-flops. I usually wear jeans or a denim mini skirt and a dressy tank top, so the flip flops actually look fine with what I'm wearing. I would like to get something a a little dressier, but everything I try on is either uncomfortable or I can't walk in it.
What shoes do you girls have that you wear most often when going out? I'm looking for a sandal/open toe since it is warm out, solid black (open to other color suggestions, but I'm not good w/coordinating shoes & clothes), and maybe with a tiny heel on it that is VERY easy to walk in (I can't walk in thin heels...only those wedge/square ones). Include pics & links if you have them!
Oh, also, I'm fairly tall, very long legs, bigger than average feet which I believe are narrow, but always seem to be bigger than those really skinny shoes.9 AnswersFashion & Accessories1 decade ago
I'm trying to find a couple of chairs and a side table for a small balcony. The problem I keep running into with most chairs is that when you sit in them, you are at eye level with the balcony railing, which is not ideal since the balcony faces the ocean and we would rather enjoy the view than stare at a rail.
Has anyone found chairs that are slightly higher than the standard balcony railings? I've also considered getting some that are lower to the ground, but most of those are too low to the ground and hard to get in and out of.

I met a new man and emotionally, he is EVERYTHING I've every wanted in a man. I feel so great when I am with him and we can talk and email for hours. But physically, although he is more than adequate and very fit and attractive, when we are together I don't experience the same passion that I've felt when I am with other men.
I'm only 27 and don't have a lot of experience with normal, well-adjusted men. Most of my past bf's have had issues, and we had dysfunctional relationships, which I've read accounts for a lot of the intensity and passion I am used to.
I'm really confused. I don't want to end something that could potentially be great over something as shallow as sex, but sex is important. Will passion build as we grow closer? Or is what I feel now what I will always feel?
Anyone with experience, give me some advice, please!1 AnswerSingles & Dating1 decade ago
When I drink mixed drinks that have a syrupy sweet base to them, I get violently sick after just a few. Can anyone recommend some good tasting drinks that taste slightly sour? I can drink endless amounts of margaritas because they are really sour, but if I have 3 or 4 appletinis I'm really sick the entire night. I also know rum & coke makes me ill too.
I'm not a big drinker, so I don't have much of a tolerance for alcohol, but I would like to be able to drink a little when I go out with friends (and not be the girl vomiting uncontrollably on the way to the car).

I've just gotten into buying stocks. I used the majority of my money to buy stocks that I plan to hold on to for some time. I would like to use a very small amount of money, maybe 200.00-300.00, and try day trading. I have a very limited knowledge of the stock market, so is there a way to make a profit day/swing trading?4 AnswersInvesting1 decade ago
I just painted my living area a dark shade of gray tonight (Behr Creek Bend) and I need help choosing a color for the kitchen, which is visible from the living area. I originally intended to paint it a bright shade of purple, but after painting a little of it, it doesn't really look that nice.
Most of my furniture is black and dark wood, with cream rugs and throws. The trim, doors and blinds are still white.7 AnswersDecorating & Remodeling1 decade ago
What hobbies are good for an 8 year old girl? This is her personality: she will do something until it gets a little too difficult or requires her to practice, then she quits. She constantly complains of being bored and always wants someone to play with her (only child). She won't stick with anything that requires effort from her.
Painting. She didn't paint well the first few times, so that was over.
Making bracelets. She couldn't automatically braid, so that was over.
Collecting squished pennies. She loves buying things (great habit her grandma got her in), but the pennies are all over the house. Not actually a collection, she just likes putting the quarters in the machine.
Drawing, quit when she couldn't draw people well.
I don't LET her quit these things, she gets pushed and made to try over and practice again, but eventually I can't force her to do any more. Her constant need for attention is really draining me. Please make ANY suggestions.12 AnswersGrade-Schooler1 decade ago
I already have a full time job, but I'd like to get a part-time job to pay off some old debt and start adding to my savings. Between my full time job and being a single mom, I don't have the flexibility to go to a part-time job at nights. I would love to find something that would allow me to work from home/telecommute because I have plenty of free time, but I'm just not able to leave the house. How does a person find a legitimate telecommuting part-time job? Do staffing agencies have these kind of jobs?
I'm not looking to triple my income or make thousands per week completeing surveys, just regular work with regular pay.6 AnswersOther - Careers & Employment1 decade ago
I'm willing to spend around 200.00 for a blender, but I want it to be quiet. Currently, I have a really cheap blender that cost me about 15.00 on clearance at Target 6 years ago....needless to say, it is very loud and does not crush ice.
I will be using it to make smoothies and I make several every day. It needs to crush and blend ice without sounding like a saw.
Also, if no one knows of a specific model, please tell me if you have bought a loud one that I should avoid.

How do i defrost a pack of frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts? I just took them from the freezer and put them in the refrigerator, but I know they won't be thawed out in time to cook tonight.
I will be cooking them on my george foreman grill, and prior to grilling, I would like to add some marinade that has to sit on the chicken for 15 minutes.
