I know there are onforwarding services that will receive parcels from backwards American companies that only ship to the USA / NAFTA, but would prefer to help out a fellow MeFite first, if that appeals... [more inside]
Is there a service that will call customer service numbers for me, deal with all their crap, and let me know the results? Maps through IVR menus only solve a small part (<5%) of my problem. Details below the fold. [more inside]

For primarily lack-of-space reasons, need a solution that is of the sleeper sofa ilk but will be far and away used as a bed more than a sofa/seating option for anyone. So comfort for sleeping, long-term, is the #1 priority. [more inside]
One of the guys in our D&D group is expecting a baby with his wife next month and we’d like to get him some presents! [more inside]
I love Banana Republic's non-iron shirts, I will never go back to wearing non-non-iron shirts no matter how much formaldehyde they put in wrinkle-free shirts, but Banana Republic seems to hate solid-color shirts so options are very limited. I love Express's solid-color shirts, but last time I checked they don't have any wrinkle-free shirts. Where else should I look to find non-iron shirts in single colors?
I'm dating a professional singer who's about to go on a long tour, and I'd like to make a small tour care package for her. I already have Thayer's lozenges and a book- other general ideas from touring singers would be really helpful! She mentioned some sort of herbal remedy that singers use for vocal chord health that has, I think, a tiger as part of the brand, so leads on that in particular would be welcomed.
I'll be living in Japan for almost the next three years. I have run across cool things for my kid that I've never seen in the States, but I know there is more that I haven't even thought about. Help me find great things to buy that I'll love forever and just wouldn't even know about in America. [more inside]

I'm thinking about buying one of these tiles to use as a mousepad, because I love the way black galaxy granite looks, and I want a stone mousepad. That said, it's a little thick and heavy (3/8 inch thick and 6 pounds!), and I'm waiting to hear back about how sharp or rough the edges are. Can you recommend anything similar that has rounded edges, is available as a one-off, doesn't have anything glued onto it, and isn't prohibitively expensive? [more inside]

I am American and I would like to buy a present for an English friend. It is a Presto Heat Dish, a kind of space heater. There is a listing for this product on Amazon UK, but it is out of stock. What British online retail outlet do you recommend that I buy this product from? I see that it is available on eBay, and I'm willing to buy there if there is no other choice, but I would prefer a more conventional retailer.
So, I'm thinking of buying a bed. I'd use it for sleep and lounging around on any time I'm at home. Budget is probably under 500$. I have... No idea what I'm doing! [more inside]
