First time massage. It's a legit massage. I'm a guy, I wonder if I should get a guy or a girl to do it? Not sure which would be more awkward really. What is the norm for this sort of thing? Also, what are the norms of tipping? I can barely tip functionally at restaurants without getting anxious. I don't even know where to begin with what to tip for a massage.
Looking for the title of a book that I read in the mid 90's. It is a "fanciful" fictional book about a family (generations of family) end up committing suicide in very strange ways. [more inside]

I am trying to find this 1980s-1990s serial killer movie about a mute girl (from what I can remember always wear black clothes) and that on one of the scenes, a chopped body of a person was shown from a trash bag or something. Anyone known the title of the movie? I watched around early 1990s.
I remember seeing a reference somewhere on mefi float by that I can't find anymore. There was a young girl (8-13?) who had hand-written a design for a video game and someone interviewed her about it, possibly her father. She went into great detail in an audio-only recording about this Portal-like game she made, and somewhere there was a link to the audio and the hand drawn pictures of several horizontally laid out levels. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Yet another WTF Mystery Photo! A friend of mine wants to know: "Anyone know where and when this picture was taken and who the girl is?" (I don't...)
[Bookfilter]: A friend asks "HELP! About 20 years ago I found a picture book at the library. It was about a little mouse girl who was being raised by a bear in Paris. The mouse had a name like Angelina -- but NOT Angelina Ballerina. Got any idea what it was?" Does this description ring any bells? Thanks!

Identify a science fiction/fantasy novel from the 1980s, possibly YA, where they lived in the trees and where talk of killing others was taboo?
Can you identify this book? I read it in the mid-1980s. It may or may not have been a YA (Young Adult) title. The protagonist was a young girl, and her society lived peacefully up in the trees. She was interested in seeing the world down on the surface. There may have been another society down there. At one point she lost her temper with someone (a pet?) and blurted out something like "I would like to dead you!" at which her family was shocked and horrified at her violent thoughts. I particularly remember being struck by that part, that she understood the concept of killing but didn't know the verb. [more inside]

I read a book about a young, girl wizard over 10 years ago and can't remember the name. It starts off with an old wizard who walks into a town where the 10th son of the 10th son of the 10th son was just born, and he transfers upon the baby all of his wizarding power. But the baby isn't a son, it's actually a daughter and this sets the scene for the rest of the book when the girl grows up to become the only female wizard, which rubs a lot of the wizarding community the wrong way.

This girl (20's) and myself (guy in my 20's) have been planning this trip for her to come visit me for some time. I go to an east coast graduate school and she goes to my old college in the Midwest. She wants to check out the school for graduate potential and we've been pretty close friends for a few years (we were in the same major, took many classes together, hung out frequently). The plan was for her to come here and sleep at my place. [more inside]
Several years ago I read a small stack of relationship books. I swear it was in Maggie Scarf's Intimate Partners, but having re-read that one cover to cover looking for the precise blip it is not in that one.

Need some help trying to find the source of this little quote. My memory is fading but I think it was from a stand-up show: "When I was a young man I wanted a girlfriend with big breasts. As I grew older I wanted an intellectual girl. In my thirties I wanted a girl to be the mother of my children. Now as an old man, I want a girl with big breasts." or something like that. Thanks Everyone !
