I remember on the cover of and old issue of Cosmopolitan was the title of an article: "The Bitch List - 10 Things You Should Never Apologize For".

I never read the magazine or the article...but if you had a bitch list, what would you list on it?

Seemingly random thingies [Jun. 4th, 2005|01:50 am]
The Question Club

[likelystory]
1. Why does cookie dough taste even better than actual cookies?
2. What's your favorite kind of cookie?
3. If someone gave you a gift that wasn't perfect, but was obviously lovingly handmade (such as a clay pot that's kinda wobbly and lopsided and they made in a class), would you really appreciate it? Or would you wish they'd just spent the money on something nice?
4. What's one really odd thing that you would want to buy if you were rich?
5. This is really a long shot, but does anyone know anything about Portland State University? Are they a decent college? I just spent a year at Berkeley and am looking to transfer into a cost-effective public college in Oregon that will still challenge me, and Portland State looks iffy, but they'll accept me with my low GPA.
6. Another college question, this one long and involving advice. One of my dear friends from high school goes to University of Oregon, which would probably be the ideal college for me to transfer into. However, our personalities clash somewhat. I'm quiet and like to stay in my room and surf the net; I don't drink. She has tons of friends who she goes out and parties heavily with. I know that if I end up going to school with her, she'll pressure me intensely to go out and drink with her, which I'm not comfortable with. As much as I like her, she has almost no consideration for other people. One time, she convinced another friend (who is really uncomfortable around alcohol because her mom is a serious alcoholic) to go on a trip with her, saying there would be almost no drinking. The trip turned into a house party with tons of heavy drinking, so the other friend ended up locking herself in a bedroom and sleeping the whole time. I know that my friend won't respect my decision not to drink, so it would be really uncomfortable for me to spend the whole year blowing her off. I don't want to lose her as a friend, because we have a lot of fun when she's away from college and not drinking. Do you think it would be better for me to go to an inferior college and not have to be socially uncomfortable the whole time, or to get a better education but possibly lose a friend and have to deal with peer pressure?

six unrelated boring questions. [Jun. 4th, 2005|07:47 am]
The Question Club
thequestionclub
[goop]
1. To those who've been pregnant: What were the early stages like for you? Any changes physically or emotionally in the first few weeks or months? Soreness, cramps, tiredness, eating more or less, breakouts, anything? Do you pee more in the early stages or is it only when the baby is weighing on your bladder?
(Disclaimer: I'm not asking for comparative reasons, it just randomly crossed my mind.)

2. Do you find it annoying when a user (not the original poster) leaves a number of comments within one entry? As in, commenting to a handful of other comments?

3. Do you find it annoying when the original poster replies to EVERY SINGLE COMMENT that they get? Especially with 90% of them sounding like empty thoughtless responses, or even robotically responding similarly to every comment?

4. I know there are products to de-scratch CDs, but are there products to de-scratch eyeglasses? Mine got scratched up a little (noticably) around the edges and I don't have the insurance to get a new pair. er.

5. Why do I make it so hard for myself to get to bed when I don't need to get up the next day? How can I encourage myself to keep a consistent sleep schedule?

6. I need to update my portfolio but I lost the rest of the blank pages that came in it... should I buy a new portfolio so I can add the 3-5 new peices in, or should I just take 3-5 of my not-so-amazing pieces out and replace them? Right now, the latter sounds like the better idea, unless someone convinces me of otherwise.

[smorewhore]
When you read a review for a film, book, play, etc., does it bother you if the reviewer reveals most (or all) of the plot points?

A friend of mine asked me to critique his book review, which I am happy to do. However, he has a terrible habit of giving away the plot, then getting pissed off when I point out that the intended audience would like to discover the novel's twists and turns for themselves.

"You write your reviews, I'll write mine!"

Oy.

[music |Gin Blossoms-Follow You Down]

Ok, here is the situation. You meet someone, fall in love, grow to adore them with all your heart, and eventually get married. After which, your new spouse and your opposite sex parent confess that they had a one night stand before you and your partner met. It was in a bar, no emotional attachment, just a spur-of-the-moment act. When you reintroduced the two they didn't immediately recognize each other, and once they finally put the pieces together, you were too far into the relationship to make such an admission without great damage. Still, the awkwardness and guilt have laid on them and grown since your recent marriage, to the point where they felt they could no longer keep it a secret. Neither your parent or lover has technically done anything wrong. What do you do? Do you stay with them? Never talk to your parent again? Could you handle it?

By the way, this question is in no way based on a real situation. It is simply a really complex hypothetical dilemma, that I am curious how people would react to.

Yesterday I saw the back of a magazine, and it had an ad on it. I think the background may have been purple, but the foreground was a mallard and the text "You are not a duck." what's that for?

This morning I realised that a pan of brownies in my fridge caused the door to be a little open all night. the only things that could potentially have gone off were cookie dough, ranch dressing (sealed sample-size cups), and some tupperware thingies of pasta (milky sauces).
Would the ranch be safe, since it's sealed? Will the other things be okay if I cook them to a certain point before eating them?

U.S.: Gitmo Quran Was Splashed With Urine

WASHINGTON - U.S. military officials say no guard at the Guantanamo Bay prison for terror suspects flushed a detainee's Quran down the toilet, but they disclosed that a Muslim holy book was splashed with urine. In other newly disclosed incidents, a detainee's Quran was deliberately kicked and another's was stepped on.

On March 25, a detainee complained to guards that "urine came through an air vent" and splashed on him and his Quran. A guard admitted he was at fault, but a report released Friday evening offering new details about Quran mishandling incidents did not make clear whether the guard intended the result.

----------

What do you think the guard wanted to happen when he pissed in the vents?

It looks like a REALLY good game. But I have been doing some research, and alot of people say it used to be great until recently. That it went to hell in a hand basket. That it's totally bug-ridden and not even worth a penny.

Is this true?
Is there a current gamer who can shed some light on this?

Because I really want it, but not if it is now getting poor reviews.

Ladies: When you wear nylons, do you wear underwear (panties) with them?

I do, but I've heard women say they don't because the nylons have the little 'piece' of extra fabric in the um, groin area.

How much pressure should one exert when using a loofah? I know there shouldn't be blood afterwards, but I'm also sure you just don't lightly glide it over your body. Is there certain places you should use more pressure? Some places on your body you shouldn't use it at all? I'm male so I have no idea.

When I click on the back or forward button, sometimes it'll go back or forward two pages instead of one. Also, when I have like a choice and all the choices show up(IE. the mood options). . it doesn't open sometimes, I keep having to click it until it'll stay open so I can choose my choice. Also when I switch back and forth between my internet pages it'll close(minimize) then open the one that I wanted to close(minimize) back up. it's weird. and it's annoying.

My fiance thinks that the mouse is double clicking by itself. I know I haven't messed with the mouse settings ina while. Could it be dirty under the clicker, if so, how would I go about cleaning it??

Thanks.

growing up. [Jun. 4th, 2005|05:24 pm]

[mood |depresseddepressed]

It's kind of a question, but there's a bit of a backstory.

I'm 25, and throughout my childhood I was sheltered and protected from conflict or any sort of problems in my life. Problem at school? Mom stepped in. Any sort of bad thing going on in my family? Mom put off telling me as much as possible. I know she thought she was doing best, but it's seriously screwed me up.

After a small depressive/mental episode last night with my friend who is 18 years older than me, he said I am an awesome person, but I just still need to grow up. I know moving out of this damned house and going to college this fall will help. But I just don't know what to do otherwise. I am in therapy (I had a session Thursday, when things were fine *sigh*) but I just have lousy coping skills, lousy social skills, and I'm so impatient. And I was spoiled as a kid too, so I have a hard time dealing when I don't get what I want.

I mean, I KNOW all of these things in my head; I'm a smart person. But I don't know what to do. Any advice or suggestions? I need to also learn how to make MYSELF happy, and not depend on other people...sigh.

help!

I use Firefox as my browser, and I really like the tabs option. Well, you know how some links open up in a new window? I was wondering if there was any way to change my settings so that instead of coming up in a new window, it just opened up a new page that could be viewed by using the tabs instead, so everything was still under one browser window. I hope that makes sense. So, is it possible?

'I said: 'It's its own country next to England, actually Mr Bush'.

'If he doesn't know the rest of the countries in Europe, he could at least know what's in his own country. I'm really worried about it. He's a right weirdo. Him and Pavarotti should get together.'

Anyone ever get a blackish bruise under their toenail? A few weeks ago a computer speaker dropped on my foot. I'm going to go to the doctor but I'm just wondering if anyone else has experience with this, how long it took to go away, what they did, etc. Thanks.

This WOULD happen as summer approaches. :P :/
