Apps 86°

I have a lot of cream cheese. I have a lot of wonton wrappers. I need to make room temp (in hot August weather) appetizers. Hopefully toddlers will like some of them. What recipes do I want? I'm also happily accepting other recipes or ideas for warm room temp apps, and/or store bought items. I'm throwing a party in August for my toddler's birthday and am, um, self-catering. It will be an indoor/outdoor party, and our AC isn't great to begin with, so let's assume it will be warm inside as well as hot outside. I'm planning to rely heavily on Trader Joe's NYC stores for apps and wine, so suggestions are welcome, as they are for other stores or homemade ideas.

My girlfriend and I are older, full-time college students with part-time jobs. She has a couple of blemishes on her credit history, whereas mine is pretty limited. I'm looking for a good card to help us establish more credit and help repair hers, that can also offer cool rewards -- either in the form of cash back or rewards points. Details inside. [more inside]

I'm soon turning 33. I want to pet an owl for my birthday.

What I would love is for someone to bring the owl to my apartment's patio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The owl will be skritched for about an hour, by 5 - 10 responsible, sober adults. Basically, this is my dream, but with an owl. [more inside]

We'd like to be better at working with older adults.

I work in a research lab that is transitioning from working with young adult populations to working with 60 year old and up adults. Most people in the lab who don't have experience with older adults (myself included) are finding the transition frustrating and difficult at times. Can you recommend some resources to help us work better with older adults? [more inside]

Educational Videogames for Grownups

Educational videogames tend to be aimed at children and/or not much fun to play (and/or both). "Typing of the Dead" is a great exception. Are there other truly addictive videogames a grownup can enjoy while learning something? The subject being taught is irrelevant-- I'd just love for my gaming time to result in some sort of useful skill. [more inside]

Bedtime stories for adults?

I'm in search of some good fiction or nonfiction books that would work well being read aloud right before bed. Nothing too grim, intricately-plotted, or with too many big words (both he and I are literate people but it's embarrassing to keep tripping over big words that are rarely used in day-to-day speech!) would be ideal. Something along the lines of A Walk in the Woods is what I'm aiming for. [more inside]

Why don't adults enjoy dizziness?

Why don't adults enjoy dizziness like kids do? When I was a kid I remember thinking adults were boring for not enjoying the feeling of dizziness, and I vowed to always enjoy it :) Now as an adult, I can't stand it, and feel like throwing up. It seems most adults (if not all) feel the same way. Why is that?
