Seam Stress

I'm looking for a sewing pattern for a top/blouse I can make out of a lightweight woven cotton or linen. I have a pretty specific idea in mind: short-sleeved, pullover, boatneck or slightly rounded neckline, with gathered fabric above the bust where it meets the yoke. I've found a pattern that's pretty close but I would rather buy a Big 4 pattern if possible for reasons described inside. [more inside]

Places to hide clues for a Soho scavenger hunt

I'm throwing a party in London, a city I'm familiar with but not intimately. One activity is a scavenger hunt, to be held around the area of Broadwick Street, Soho. I'm looking for five or six clever, inconspicuous places in that area where I can hide paper clues without them being instantly destroyed or discarded. Everyone participating is an able-bodied young man so the harder they are to reach, the better...

Are online gamers in foreign countries also awful?

Obviously, if you play any kind of competitive multiplayer game in the US there's a good chance you'll run into obscene trash talk at the very least. More than once I've seen pro-nazi or pro-KKK usernames, whether sincere or just to offend people. The 10 year old calling people racial slurs is a stereotype. What I'm wondering is, on servers in other countries, especially non-English-language, are people somewhat more polite? Or is this just an Anglophone problem? I'm thinking more of shooters/MOBAs/etc. than MMOs, here.

Choreographer in Boston area

I'd like to work with an instructor and choreographer to come up with a couple of dances for myself and a couple of friends, technical dance novices all around. We're looking to create one burlesque and one lively coordinated pop dance number, and get both the choreography and dance instruction to make it happen. We would love to work with one person who could help with all of it if we hit it off, though happy to work with different artists if those styles don't come in the same person. They should be excited to work with a bunch of middle aged queer women to put together something sexy and fun but slightly weird or askew. Halp, please! Do you know of anyone?

After one year of personal training, where to next?

I'm a man in his early 20s who's just finished up a year's worth of weight training with a personal trainer. I want to put the money towards something completely different now, so I'm looking to go solo at the gym. But I still really want the structure having a trainer provided me: in particular, I really want to know what I'm going to do before I walk into the gym. My trainer was very good in some respects, but I don't have much of a clue how to put a routine together. Can you help? [more inside]
