laundry day [Sep. 16th, 2014|09:58 pm]

piperki
When I was in college, I got a job in a little laundromat. One of my jobs was to wash, dry and fold laundry that customers dropped off. I was shocked to learn that I had been folding laundry ALL WRONG. I had learned to fold backwardsCollapse )

How do you fold your laundry?

Should I go to my cousin’s wedding? [Sep. 16th, 2014|06:59 pm]

sara_k_s
I have been invited to my cousin’s wedding next month, and I’m on the fence about whether I should go…

Reasons in favor of going to the wedding:
  • My cousin is family and I feel obligated.
  • I don’t see the rest of my family (including my parents, siblings, and grandfather) very often, and this is a rare occasion when they will all be together. My grandfather is pretty old and I don’t know how much longer he’ll be around.
  • I’m not sure I will be able to make it home for the holidays, so if I go to the wedding, it might fulfill my family-visiting obligation quota for the year. Traveling will be a lot cheaper and easier now than it will be during the holidays.

Reasons for not going to the wedding:
  • It would cost over $200 and 16 hours (round trip) to travel to the wedding.
  • I hate going to weddings.
  • I have never been very close with this cousin; in fact, she sat next to me at the reception of another cousin’s wedding a few months ago and didn’t say a word to me or introduce me to her fiancé. I doubt she would notice or care about my absence or presence at her wedding.
  • If I don’t go, I’ll still send a nice gift, and as a bonus, my cousin won’t have to pay for my meal.
  • I have a job with a crazy schedule, so I can use that as an excuse for why I can’t go (even though I can most likely get out of it if necessary).
  • My parents will have a full house due to all of my siblings and their significant others staying there, plus my grandfather, and I will have to sleep on the couch if I go.

I am going out of the country (US) for the first time this weekend. I am staying for ten days in the UK in various cities. Will be in London for probably two or three days.

Anything I might be forgetting to pack/bring?

Any must see/do things while there?

Is it ever appropriate or good form to point out cameltoe?

Is cameltoe a mistake?
Or is it just the cost of having female anatomy coupled with tight pants?

If you had cameltoe, would you want your friend to tell you?

Tell me about cameltoe etiquette. Because I saw some a few days ago that made me gasp inside my head. It was SO distracting. Then I chastised myself for being such a child.

How many bags of curbside trash do you go through in a week? How many people in your home? Do you recycle?

We recycle as much as we can and we have two adults and a 3 year old in the house but I feel like we go through an obscene amount of trash....tomorrow is pick up day and we have 5 bags...FIVE BAGS??!!

We have no way to compost and a good portion of it is things like produce waste and left overs which makes me feel even worse -_-

Who do you use for website hosting? Are you happy with their service?

(I'm currently with Dreamhost, but good gravy: I cannot access my site 99% of the time.)

Don't care/not applicable: what is something that most people would think is trivial but would make you break up with somebody immediately?

EDIT: If somebody wanted to give you a $25 gift card, where would you want it to be from?

Is it just me or do people not tend to use cuts any more? Even for long posts that really should be.

What rules of netiquette do you wish were strictly enforced?

I've done hours upon hours of research about traveling on a budget. I'm a full-time college student with an itch for the globe-trotting lifestyle. Thus, leading to these questions:

1. Does anyone have an ISIC card?
2. Has anyone applied for a student travel scholarship?
3. Travel reccomendations?

What is an "old-fashioned" (YMMV) technology that you don't use (at least not regularly) that you find cool/stylish/interesting in appearance? *pics encouraged

E.T.A. BONUS: Ever purchased/acquired older tech in order to start re-using some form of entertainment? Ex: video game systems.

Feel free to also discuss "old-fashioned" technology that you do continue to use or own; i.e. I know some people do things like collect typewriters, etc.

or

be wearing a shit ton of awful cologne/perfume?

Explain.

A straight person says they don't have anything against gay people, but can't stand the idea of someone of the same gender fantasizing about them. (They have no problem with their preferred gender fantasizing about them)

Is this homophobic?

Discuss.

When filling out a job application if you don't remember the rate of pay you started at what do you put?  What about for the supervisor?  Put who your supervisor was?  What if they don't work there anymore (I don't know if they do or don't, but hypothetically)? Do they actually contact these people? It's been over 6 years since I worked there and in that time I've transitioned to male. So if they call to ask about me my previous employer won't know who they mean.

Can you think of something that you would consider "age appropriate" at, say, 20, but inappropriate at 30, or something age-appropriate at 30 but not at 40, ect.?
