Bono: Melancholy


I was wondering what level a person in advertising would be in their late 20's? The character works at a largeish firm in New York, and is a bit advanced for her age. Also, what would the job functions entail? I don't need anything detailed, but enough to have a scene or 2 at her job (in the first scene, she is presenting an ad to people, could either be bosses or clients).


Itches and Bras.

Hey Folks--

I'm a boy, and have a question or two regarding the wearing of bras and the general location of related itches//annoyances. Yes, for a story, since the question undoubtedly will come up [as it were].

My Googling produced various informations along the lines of:
--bra itching taking place "where the bra goes around my chest". I assume this means just behind the breasts, under the armpits. ...Right?
--bra labels [which can be removed], seams and clasps can aid the onset of chafing//itching//rashes
--the idea of using lotions, not wearing bras, wearing bras of a different manufacture and making sure to wear clean bras aiding the finding out of what works for you on the issue
--obviously, bra straps falling off of shoulders, bras clasps becoming unclasped.

My Questions
1) Where do you [females, and//or those of us who wear bras anyway] find bra-related itching happens for you?
2) What do you notice between wearing bras and not wearing bras regarding being 'restrained' or 'wrapped up' [or however you wish to call it].

My Point For Asking:
I have a [physically developed] female character who goes from wearing bras very irregularly [almost never] to wearing bras on a daily basis. Since I assume the added piece of clothing will induce various annoyances. That, plus my being a boy who doesn't need a bra to look good in drag, lead to my questions.

Believe me... if I suddenly gained ~75lbs, I'd buy a 'bro' from George Kastanza's father to better understand this from first hand experience.

All help will be grealy appreciated!

Religion, especially weddings, both Catholic and Hindu

What would be required in a Catholic wedding? Are there particular vows that must be said or certain actions that must be taken for the Church to consider the marriage valid?

Ditto for a Hindu marriage.

Is there any way that the two could be combined without involving a lot of repetition of concepts, and without discarding those necessary portions? (Husband and wife's devotion to each other, etc.)

Also, I vaguely recall that Catholic ceremonies tend towards the "the wife is subservient to her husband" idea, and from what I've seen, Hindu ceremonies are similar. Are there any egalitarian variations that are accepted by the two religions? (i.e. The husband and the wife are both subservient to God, or some other variant?)


On a completely different note, how odd would it be for a Catholic church to hold luncheons after services on Sundays? Would that be more typical of a small church or a small community?

Also, could anyone tell me what an "Abhishekam" is? It seems like some sort of Hindu devotion/service, but I can't find any good defintions. (The closest I can find is "installing a deity in the temple".)
