    Such a PC term, better than Jerry rigging or the worse one.

    List yours.

    Recently I found my alarm clock is too bright even on the dimmest setting. I used to cover it completely with a wash cloth but I want to be able to glance at it to see what time it is in the middle of the night during the various times I wake up. My solution? Put a pair of my black tights over the clock. Dims the brightness and still able to tell time. :)

    I put rubbing alcohol on q-tips... breaks up the wax easier and keeps it from being pushed in to your dome. :grad:

    I haven't worn tights in years! I'm one of those chicks that doesn't wear pantyhose or tights with dresses and skirts. Probably should though, my legs are white as hell!

    You can also use the qtip and alcohol concoction to clean your belly button. :hat:

    Have you seen that infomercial for this vacuum that cleans the wax outta your ear? Bizarre! That idiot dude yells OW! So loud because he supposedly hits his eardrum when cleaning his ear. Who shoves them in that far?

    I have a super bright alarm clock too. Could one of you ladies send me some tights? Used, preferred. Unwashed preferred :c
