OK! so on the PSAT's i wrote in my email address as garth@therehabs.com. this was my email address from when i was in my band. my band has since disintegrated, as has the website, so garth@therehabs.com no longer functions, so colleges are sending information to NOTHING. i have a new email address, so how would you recommend informing all colleges of the change?

also....do you have a favorite belt buckle? pictures would be cool.

i love you.

I've got a Velvet Elvis Heart

This pope thing is interesting. I'm not Catholic, so maybe it's something that's just lost on me. There's this little asian kid named Ben that I work with. I'd never known him to be particularly religious, other than as a rationalization for his twenty-six year-old virginity. Tonight, I ask him how he is. He says, a little sad. Why, I ask. Well, I'm Catholic, so... And he trailed off. It took me a minute to get it.

Is it simply a leader thing? Is it just that I don't have a leader in my life to make me understand how hard it is to lose one? My instinctive reaction is that it's sad, but ultimately not that big of a deal. The public's reaction to the Pope's death seems eerily similar to the public's reaction to Dale Ernhart's (sp?), so how can I really think of it as any bigger deal?

I'm not trying to be a shit, really. Can someone explain to me the average Catholic's relationship to the Pope? I mean, he's not God. He's just an intermediary of somesort, right? How is it that so many people can be so upset by the death of someone they don't even know?

Also, why are so many wonderful actors from OZ now on mediocre LAW & ORDER spin-offs?

Sexual Openness

I have been wondering about sexual openness (as in open to experiences and experimenting with different things) lately. Is it a bad thing?

I'm noticing that guys who want to sleep with you think it's great while guys who might want to be more serious with you seem to want you to be all virginal. So what does being a sexually open person do to your marryable factor?

Okay. The muscle that girls flex to do kegels... do boys have that muscle?
My boyfriend can bounce his dangly-bits up and down when they're not being dangly(God, what am I, five?), and we were debating whether that's the same muscle or not.
(Edit: also, this makes me giggle a great deal whenever he does it.)

I have a somewhat important interview tomorrow morning and I'm in a bit of a jam.

I asked a few days ago about resumes and now I'm working on it. I still have a few questions.

01. How important do you think having a cover letter is?
02. All the sample cover letters I've looked at to get an idea as to how to format it has a specific name of a person but I have no idea who to address it to! There really isn't anyway to find out who I should address it to until my interview. How should I address the letter?
03. Is it important to have the resume in something? A protective folder, or something?

Here's some background information:

I'm going for an administrative assistant job for a company that "fabricates glass, quartz, crystals, plastic and metal components for UV, VIS, and IR regions." This company has been around for almost fifty years, if not more. I'm eighteen years old and collectively I've had two years retail experience and six months in data entry. My past average pay rate has been $8.00 per hour. I have open flexibility and this job is probably full time. I live about forty five minutes away from New York city (just so you know the general area.). Knowing that, how much per hour do you think would be appropriate to get?

And what exactly is "UV, VIS, and IR regions."?

Thank you so much.

not so cheap sunglasses

I'm probably going to get my eyes checked sometime in the next month and I'll have to have my prescription readjusted. Instead of just getting new frames, I'm going to get the lenses changed in my old ones... but I want one of them to be prescription sunglasses. I know you can get glasses with tinted lenses, but what about color-tinted sunglasses? I'm off to check the provider's website, but I thought I'd ask anyway...

Also, has anyone had any experience with Transitions lenses? I was thinking it would be great to have those but the only problem would be at night with headlights, or at least that's what my mom says.

i hate my hair.

i need some (insignificant) advice.

i'm a natural blonde. a year ago i spontaneously dyed it black.

every couple months when the roots get ridiculous and people start commenting, i dye it black again.

now i'm bored of dying it black.

i tried adding highlights to camouflage the variant line. no luck.

i tried an overall lightening dye, and it ended up giving my natural roots (almost two inches long at this point) an orangish-reddish color, but the black stayed black.

i'm not experienced enough to try using an overall bleach cause, well, i'm scared to. my hair is pretty long (about belly button length) and i'm afraid of breaking it off.

i have a cosmetologist cousin who sporadically does my hair for me but she lives three hours away. she doesn't know when she'll be in town again.

i'm not working right now so i can't afford to pay $160 at a salon (the irony is that the places i've interviewed at point out that they want their employees to have tasteful clothes and hair... i think they are implying that mine is not).

so my question.....

would you.....
- just leave it and let the roots get ridiculously disgusting with variant stripes (the black, the orange, and the natural)?
- dye it black again, thus upping the risk of breakage when you are able to get it bleached?
- grow a pair and buy an inexpensive bleach cream at the store and do it yourself, not knowing if it will even work since this black dye seems to be made of titanium?
- get someone to drive you (i don't have my license) three hours to see the cousin?
- charge the salon trip to your visa, not knowing how soon you'll be getting a job and already stressing over finances as it is?

If it was 12 degrees Farenheit out, would 24 degrees be twice as warm?
What would twice as warm as 0 degrees be? Is that possible?
If you transfered that to Celcius, doubled it, and changed it back to Farenheit would it be right?

Has anyone else ever tried to block a sneeze and caused snot to shoot up on their glasses? It's pretty gross.

Have you ever encountered something really gross at your favorite restaurant? A wood roach crawled across our table today.

Does anyone else, year after year, notice the same kinds a stupid drama bullshit in their social circles? It seems like same shit, different year right now, deja vu. Should I try to alert them or sit back and laugh? Yes I consider them friends, but if they haven't learned from their mistakes, what good would it do?

hey everyone,
granted, i am on my period, but this is an ongoing thing.
i have a bad complexion. Yes, it could be worse, but I wash my face every morning, after I work out, at night, I exfoliate with salicylic acid twice a week, i have murad salysdlkjawerkj acid stuff to put directly on acne.

this is what i use:
in the morning, if i'm not working out that day- clean and clear morning sunrise orange smells-good-but-does-jack-shit stuff
at night- dove facial clenser soap foam stuff

**after i work out- DDF (doctor's dermatoligist formula, i realize that i can't spell) with 5% benzel peroxide --and if i use this, then i use dove in the morning as to not overdry my face. OH, and i moisturize with purpose.

am i using too many products? should i throw any certain product away? does anyone have this all figured out as I clearly do not? Am I doing something wrong, or should I just throw in the towel and order from proactive?

No, I have not seen a dermatoligist, but my friends who have haven't really benefitted from it. Many of them. And dermatoligists seem kind of sketchy. And I'm in Poughkeepsie, New York, so there's not too much offered here anyway.

thank you SO much for ANY information you have, it will be a bigger help than you know.

Why does Kelis' "milkshake" bring all the boys to the yard? Does she use 100% organic milk, hand-picked strawberries, or fine imported chocolate?

Actually, how the heck did the word "milkshake" become slang for a woman's body and how she carries it?

1. Why is it that the person I am most interested in right now has nothing in common with me? I know the saying..."opposites attract", but it doesn't seem to make much sense that I am so attracted to someone who I have nothing in common with.
2. Is it wrong/slutty/gross to have a...uh...crush (not the right word...but whatever) on more than one person if you're not actually seeing any of them?
3. If you could pick between spending a few days in NYC or Toronto, which would you choose and why?

Also, I figured I'd mention that I used to be __lockdownxbaby, since I'm pretty active on here. :)

Wedding Songs

If you're married, what was 'your song' at your wedding?

If you're not married..but know what song you want to have, what is it?

I'm hooked on David Grey's "This year's love" so far..but I have no idea...that's a while away.

Does anyone know what song Dave Navarro and Carmen Electra used? I can't remember the name of it :/
