I was "passively verfied", which means they couldn't reach anybody at my doctor's office. And I did have to provide them with that info (or something close to it) to make my order. I gave his last name & the number to his clinic, but whatevs. I'm gettin' my contacts.

I order mine online from clearlycontacts.ca. I have to put in my own prescription and then just order them. The way I do it they don't have a way to contact my doctor or know his name. Did you have to give your doctors info when you ordered them?

I didn't know where else to post this: Does anybody here order contacts online? Basically, I just passed the two year mark on my prescription & I didn't feel like shelling out cash on an eye appointment since my scrip hasn't changed in nearly ten years: -1.50 in both eyes. I almost always wear glasses as I find them to be the more stylish option, but sometimes contacts just rock. So I ordered some online & was wondering just how carefully online retailers check with eye doctors. Are they actually gonna call my eye doctor to make sure my scrip is up to date or do we think they'll let it slide in the name of the all mighty dollar?

snow, do you read Bitch? looks academic in comparison to Bust etc. and maybe it a bit so, but it's a lot of fun to read.

i think there used to be a mag thread around here? try the Bust:discuss thread.

is there a magazine thread here? i've been trying to subscribe to more magazines but most "chick mags" pretty much suck (i.e. Cosmo, Glamour, Allure). I mean, they were ok in highschool but how many issues does it take to give a reader make-up tips, fashion advice, new ways to have "mond blowing" sex, and articles about "empowered women" (nothing against those women, i'm just tired of pretty much reading the same article over and over again). I used to subscribe to Missbehave and I loved it (not in print anymore), now aside from Bust I have nothing else in my mail box besides catalogs and bills sad.gif

Where's all the offbeat, creative, smart, snarky, sexy, girlie magazines???

I think it would be just fine. All is fair in roller derby.

Sorry, no idea, CH.

Need an opinion about a Christmas gift. I'm probably over-thinking this, but if I got this shirt for a male friend of mine, would it be perceived as misogynistic? (Click on the picture of the t-shirt, then click "View Back" to see the part I'm questioning)

For anyone that needs explanation, it's a roller derby t-shirt; those are the referee hand signals on the front of it. The guy I'm giving it to is totally a feminist (husband of a Bustie) and would be secure enough to wear it, I'm just not sure how it would come off to others. There's a very good chance he'd primarily wear it to roller derby games and I'm 99% sure that within that context, people would see the humor in it and not think he was an asshole, but even then, I'm not sure.

Many moons ago, the magazine ran a snippet on a comic book who had a characater whose sidekick was a vibrator or dildo.

Does anyone remember the name of the comic?

Mine has two threads I actually started & one that I was just the poster where the cutoff was.

If you want to save something, KW, I'd probably use the personal notepad on your control panel. I save odd bits of wisdom there sometimes.

Thank you soooooo much! I was going nuts trying to find out.

Also, I think the stress is getting to me. I keep noticing grammatical mistakes in my posts such as writing "hear" instead of "here" and "to" instead of "too". I'm losing it.

Thanks, tree. I had actually already used impish and now I'm on to writing about Vivian which leads me to my next question.
Has anyone in hear read The Big Sleep or at least seen the movie and remember how many husbands Vivian has had? I have tried googling it over and over, I've used wiki and sparknotes and I cannot get an answer! I keep looking through the book but I can't seem to find out the answer.


According to this peice of internets it's three.

Badly behaved ingenue is a good one!

eta: the bit here also says three (see the character synopsis of vivian regan) http://www.answers.com/topic/the-big-sleep-characters

CCG, describing Carmen as an ingenue should work, albeit a badly behaved one.

Putting some Borax in there might help, treehugger.

impish? I'm trying to think of a non-judgemental noun but I'm coming up short. Of course, it doesn't help that I'm not familiar with the book.

CH, yes, sometimes the laundry does sit for a little while before it makes it to the dryer, but the other stuff doesn't have or develop that funk, so I don't think that is the problem. Maybe they're just old? Some are over fifteen years old. I'm going to try some of the suggestions.

Well, the funny thing is that since the book is narrated by the character Phillip Marlowe, it's full of his judgments. I'm also trying to address how Carmen might be described by someone other than Marlowe since he hates her. Mostly I was trying to find a noun for what she might be called. Anyway, back to work. sad.gif

Maybe too harsh. It sounds like you aren't trying to describe, not judge.

Hi ladies. Can anyone think of a word for a girl who acts like a child all the time? I mean, besides just the adjective of childish. I'm trying to write an essay on The Big Sleep (the novel, not the movie) and how women are depicted. Right now I'm doing the character of Carmen.
