Change? [Aug. 25th, 2006|12:13 am]

[mood |curiouscurious]

How do you unofficially change your first name?

I really prefer my nickname to my real name and I would love to be called by it all the time. Beyond just introducing myself to new people as Vera, how can I get people to use it? And how far can I go with it before I have to make it official? I mean, can I use it on a resume? With a professor?

eta Also, should I really be waiting till I finish college to make this change so I won't be with people who have known me by my real name for the past few years?

1) I'm going to an outdoor concert next week. Having never been to a concert before, what should I wear? (Keeping in mind that it's a bit of a date...)

2) Also, about that date: The guy I'm going with is a friend of mine from the last term of college. I didn't consider it a date when I asked him, but it came out that he assumed I had asked him on a date. He's a few years older than me and is constantly spending time over in my dorm (though he's friends with my roommate, too). He came over today to use my stove and we talked for an hour and a half and ended up talking a lot about our families (he asked a lot about mine). He talks a lot about relationships around me and always jokes that for such and such a reason "it's meant to be," "we're soulmates." Anyway, we're pretty close friends and I'm not nervous at all about talking to him if I should--should I tell him that I really am interested in him?

So with my new job and classes starting, I'm sort of running out of time to eat. But I'll be out of the house from 7:00-6:30, so eating is really something I need to do. I figure I'll eat breakfast at home, take a granola bar to eat between my first work shift and my first class, then take a lunch to eat between my last class and my next work shift, and then eat dinner when I get home.

But what are some good, easy transported lunch items? Preferably that I wouldn't need to refridgerate/heat up, but if I have to it's not a big deal. This is going to be my first job in three years that I don't have the luxury of eating whenever I feel like it, and I'm afraid of starving.

Edit: Please no "I would write one myself" answers. I'm looking for a pre-existing song here.

Question: my (right) ear is really, really "plugged" or "stuffed", if you please. So badly that I cannot hear out of it, and now have to rely on my left ear, which I just so happened to have lost a lot of hearing ability from because of some sort of ear infection. Is there a way to (SAFELY) "unplug" my right ear within the next 4 hours? I've tried to (gently!) use a cotton swab, and it didn't work. Help?

Hey everyone...

I'm in desperate need of some new books to read. I'm not terribly picky when it comes to books but just to give you a general idea; my two favorite books are Perks and Looking For Alaska. I also really love Palahniuk books but I've read them all so far...

Fire away anything you think I might like or even something you just like.

If you have/have had a nose ring, did the backing in your nose bother you at all?
Are most backings flat like those you would find with a labret piercing, or are they the rounded ones that are on most regular ear studs?

A local is selling this laptop. Is this a good price for someone who is not a gamer or are the features unnecessary for my computer activities?

Additionally, would you say this is priced high or low and by how much?

[judes]
1. have you ever read ayn rand's novels or her books / essays? was it for school? and if so what program?
2. what do you think about ayn rand as a person?
3. what do you think about her novels?
4. what do you think about her philosophy?
5. would you call yourself an objectivist?
6. if you said yes to 5 or you call yourself a fan/follower of her, how old are you and what is your sex?

this isn't for an assignment but for my own personal interest.
i hear a lot of fangirling about her and a lot of "i hate her", but i'm curious as to what people think about her in general and if people take her seriously or not. the stereotype going around is that most people who read her books are impressionable college girls who take women studies or women literature courses.

i used to be a big fan, but after researching more about her philosophy, her personal life, and memoirs by people who she was closely associated with, i started to see there was a distinction between her philosophy and her books. she stated early on that she created her philosophy for her writing, but then it seems she got all caught up about it being the explanation for everything in her life. that bothered me, along with a lot of the contradictions and certain extremes portrayed in both her novels and in her essays in general...so now i enjoy her novels only because they're a good read, but i don't take them seriously anymore.

I am looking for the name of this song, and the name of the band the performs it. The only lyrics I know are

Its a contemperary song with a haunting musical background. Its a male singer who seems to be singing to his love. Its played on the radio to a nauseating extent. I tryed googleing it, but to no avail, all the results were not what I was looking for.

What is the emoticon for somebody who is stinky? I tried Google and nothing much came up. We were thinking a stinky person would look like the following, but are looking for other suggestions: ~:-X

In your experience, are subcultures (I'm thinking punk and goth, mostly, although I can name a few more) as accepting of different interests and views as they claim to be?

question about paid accounts [Aug. 25th, 2006|10:14 pm]

So far I cannot find the answer to this, so I shall ask here.

When you have a paid account, and if you chose the option of paying for one year on automatic payments (for $19.95), do they alert you before they deduct or charge the next payment out of your account next year?
I'm curious because, obviously, I may not remember one full year from now that $19.95 will be deducted from my account.

I have also seen some people say that LJ never alerts them in time that their paid account is about to expire. Is this more the exception than the rule in your experience?

Finally, any reason I shouldn't bother with a paid account? ;-) (such as any scuttlebutt that LJ may be shutting down in 2 months?)
I'm tired of seeing the ads, but I like the extras I get, this is why I'm thinking about finally paying for LJ.

Wristwatch [Aug. 25th, 2006|10:26 pm]

Hey Question Club, what would you think of this watch for a guy? I was looking for a watch, came across that, and really liked it. I was just wondering if it's too feminine for a guy or not, I know nothing about fashion. I have really skinny wrists so larger watches, as most guys are, don't fit that well on me.

More hair product questions! [Aug. 25th, 2006|10:28 pm]

So, I'm considering actually spending some money on hair products. I tried one of the color-enhancing shampoos that are all over the place (forget which), and it was pretty nice. But tonight at the store, I stared blankly at 5-10 different branded products that all appeared to be nearly the same thing to me.
I'm thinking about the color/shine-enhancing things (like the ones made for brunettes etc), and also somewhat thinking about ones that make curly hair happy (picked up a Fructis one on sale, will give that a shot in the next few days).

Anyone have suggestions? For the record, my hair is a medium brown (whether it falls into the lighter or darker brown range, I can't decide, but I think it leans toward the lighter), naturally curly, about shoulder-length.

For those of you who exercise, do you cleanse your face before or after? (And by exercise I mean cardio, so that your face sweats.)

I run, and I read that you should always clean your face with astringent IMMEDIATELY after the run, because otherwise the pores will close right away and trap the dirt (or something along these lines). Is that true?
But wouldn't it make sense to open the pores before the run as well? And does it matter if it's hot/cold/humid where you exercise?

Does it bug the crap out of you when someone makes a post and says to click a ( fake cut ) when it is, in fact, nothing but a link?

EDIT: Sorry, I think I was unclear. Does it bug you when someone says "follow the fake cut!" and then posts something that looks like this instead of ( this )?

Today I saw a decal on the back of a truck that said "if it's rubbin, it's racin." What the fuck does that mean?
