Because of timing and thanksgiving I was not able to find anyone who can make a Death Star cake. I took upon myself to try and make it. This was my first time using fondant 😁

Ask Phoenix Coworkers often talk about donating plasma. Are these offers really true?

41 Upvotes

I've never donated plasma but I see the centers all over town. I've been really trying to stack my money for the holidays so I been doing overtime, hosting a yard sale today but extra cash for donating doesn't sound bad. I'm googling centers and some ads say things like "get up to $800 today!" Or "$1000 for first time donors"

Are these actually legit? My coworkers have said donating is only good during the promotions, which that part I believe. But how legit are these promos? Any help would be so appreciated because I freaking hate needles but damn it I want my kids to have a good Christmas this year so I'm gonna really consider it.

I'm not a great redditor so thank you in advance to those who reply ❤

Now that recreational marijuana is legal, do hospitals still test for THC when drug testing employees?

Hello all! I’m looking to buy decorated gingerbread cookies in the East Valley for my son’s birthday in a couple of weeks. I’ve found a couple of places that do this but charge a little out of my budget (looking to spend less than $90 or less for 30 cookies). TIA!

Any places I could find that seemed remotely equivalent appear to be shut down right now. I'd really like a little local theater with events and independent movies and stuff, it was one of my favorite things in Tucson. Is there anything like that here?

Pets Exotic pet stores in Phx

3 Upvotes

I used to own a pet tarantula for a long while in my younger days until I gave it away. I was thinking such a pet would make a good first time exotic pet for a certain young person in my life for christmas. (I'm gonna be helping care for it too) Any reptile/arachnid/fish owners in Phx on here that would have a good small business pet store to recommend?

I'm looking for a small store with knowledgeable staff. Something that sells reptiles and more in addition to fish. I don't necessarily want a Mexican red knee or Chilean rose hair. Some tarantula that is non venomous yet also interesting. Interested to find something new in Phoenix.

Wildlife Are there any similar products or methods that are effective at keeping coyotes out of back yards? I like this but it's a bit expensive and apparently only comes in 4 foot increments.
