California eye roll

Planning our vacation to California for the end of August and looking for suggestions on what will impress our 16 y.o. son and 13 and 12 y.o. daughters. We'll fly in to LA and out San Francisco, or vice-versa, and rent a vehicle for the week. So far, Alcatraz and Universal are on the list, but I'm not sure what other plans to make. What can you recommend?

Is this proper new cat protocol or a cruel kitty quarantine?

I've read around lots of sites that when introducing a new cat to the fold you should keep them separate for a while (a week) so that the cats all get used to each other's smells. That's all fine and dandy but how small is too small a room for a cat? [more inside]

Beach and casino in August?

Yay! I'm going on vacation with my amazing awesome brother! Neither of us have done something like this before and we don't really know where to start. We want to travel the first week in August, for 4-5 nights, from Washington DC. I want to be on the beach, but directly, walk outside the room onto the beach on the beach. He wants a good casino there or near by. We were thinking the Caribbean but are open to anything that's an easy flight. A cruise is also a possibility. Our budget is up to $2000 (flights + hotel + preferably food). Where have you been that was beautiful and relaxing and fun? Or else, how did you wade through the plethora of vacation/hotel sites to find exactly what you were looking for? Thank you!

What type of file has the extension .svd?

What the heck is this vacant dome thing?

Does anyone know the story of this odd building in west Houston, TX? It seems to have been vacant for years, there's not been any signage, and it is up for sale. Was it the headquarters of a sect? A failed commune? No one I know seems to know what the heck it was. Thanks!

Magical Email Signature to Address Book (Mac) Contact Convertor?

I am looking for a "Magical Email Signature to Address Book (Mac) Contact Convertor"? In a perfect world I would like to have a browser plugin that would allow me to select several lines of text (ie. the boilerplate signature at the end of someones email) and then would convert the information into a vCard or import it into Apple's Address Book program. Does this exist somewhere? I have looked with no luck.

How to subsidize my internship?

Hi there, I'm currently a first-year Political Science major with a pre-law focus, and am very involved in my school's Mock Trial and pre-law fraternity. I've always wanted to work for The Innocence Project, and that's still my goal after graduation. On the internship page, it says, "We encourage using the internship to gain course credit and to seek “work-study” grants with your educational institution, if that is an option." How do I go about this? [more inside]

Why is there a fireplace in a 7th day adventist lectern?

Last night, I attended a dress rehersal of a choir my daughter will be joining. It was at a 7th day adventist church and I noticed that the lectern had a (gas-burning) fireplace set into the front facing the pews. Does this have any religious significance or is it just a quirk of this church? The choir is just renting the space for practice, so they're not a good source for info.

Where can I find pasties in NYC for a mermaid costume?

I'm trying to put together a last minute costume for the Coney Island Mermaid Parade this Saturday, and need some pasties with tassels. Ideally I'm going for something somewhat classy in an old-school burlesque style, like this, but would also settle for something basic like this, that I could decorate at home with sparkly glitter and whatnot. Because of the timing I can't shop online, so need to find a store in NYC (preferably Manhattan or Brooklyn). Any ideas, metafilter? Thanks!!

Aesthetic appeal vs. sexual attraction

I'm confused somewhat about my sexuality. It's an issue for me. Likely I'm gay and not straight. I'm wondering how can I tell apart aesthetic appeal from sexual attraction. Also, am I in denial to some point, because I'm constantly wondering over whether if I like women or not? That's why I'm wondering about the difference between aesthetic appeal and sexual attraction.
