I hate having to call my significant other my significant other coz it sounds so dsajflkjsd, but the alternatives suck so far as I know.
Boyfriend sounds like we're both 12 year-olds with crushes. Fiance doesn't work coz I don't believe in marriage, although it comes closer to conveying the implications than boyfriend. Lover sounds dirty and French. Domestic partner and long-term partner... no. Just no.
Is there a respectable word for SO that also doesn't suck? If not, can someone make one, kthnx?
What brand and type of bread do you buy/eat? (Type being white, whole grain, wheat, wtfever...)
Peanut butter? (Brand! Type being creamy, crunchy, etc.)
Jelly? (Brand! Type being flavor.)
Do you say to-mah-to or to-may-to?
I know there's that saying and all, but I've never actually heard somebody say "to-mah-to" in regular speech. I was taking a take-out order over the phone at work once and this lady said "to-mah-to" and it made my mind do a double-take.
I'm sure this has been asked many times before, but meh. Where in the NYC metro area would be cheapest for two or three recent-ish high school graduates? In or near Manhattan would be preferable, but anywhere within maybe 30 miles would work.
How do you if you have heartburn? And if you do, how the heck do you get rid of it? Here's my scenrio, for the past two mornings I have woken up coffing, and when I swallow, the back of my throat feels scratchy kind of, and I have to stay awake until the feeling passes, because every time I swallow, I cough and when I cough too much it makes me feel like throwing up, and I really really hate doing that, I try to avoid it at all cost. I haven't done anything different, I always eat something when I come home from work and for the past two nights, it's been something different from the other. Could it possibly be pregnancy related? My husband and I have been trying for a baby and that would be wonderful if it was pregnancy related (I know, the hating to throw up part is going to be wonderful during the morning sickness period of pregnancy). Sorry about the ramble, I'm tired and I want to go to bed, and it's difficult for me to just end a post when I am tired.
EDIT: Thanks to the first commentor, my question is answered in the since that it isn't heartburn, and the air being dry would make sense, because there are some other mornings when I wake up so parched that if I don't get something to drink I feel like I might just die, seriously. what do I do to remedy this situation? as cost effective as possibly with the solutions if possible, thank you.
What are your views on sport hunting?
What are your thoughts on hunting used for animal population control?
"many of us, including me, want to express a boyish side to our nature by physically looking boyish, I think just as much as all that, we want to be able to be recognised as queer."
i have my own opinions about this comment.
what do you think?
when people don't dress according to the straight status quo, what are their motives? how do you dress, and what influences it? do you dress how you like, or to get a certain reaction from people?
Afraid its a mobile phone question.
I have a number that has been in use for some time but when I tried to text it the other day it wouldn't send. Of course I resent it and still had the same problem. Tried typing another message and it still wouldn't send.
I've never had this happen before unless the signal wasn't strong enough, which was not this case here,
Does this just mean that their phone has given up the ghost? Sim card and all?
If a transgendered person commits a crime and has to go to prison, does where they go [male or female] depend on operation status [ie- if they are post-op or pre-op] or how they are living or... some other strange thing?
I'm just curious.
What mashup would you love to put together?
Here are examples.
Oops I Did It Again by Britney Spears / Bent by Matchbox Twenty
California Love by 2Pac / Family Affair by Mary J Blige
You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC / I Can't Dance by Genesis
Do you like mashups? Any particular ones you like?
Do you tell them?
What if they either never see your inspiration or don't know that they were the one who inspired you?
What if your inspiration captures apart of their true self?
earlier someone posted asking what your favorite font was, if you had one.
so what's your least favorite (i.e. most hated) font?
mine is that fugly comic sans ms font. makes me cringe, grit my teeth, etc.
p.s. oh and that brush script font thing. man i hate that font.
Who has it better/easier, men or women?
Note: I did not include transgendered because there is no question in my mind that they have it harder than non-transgendered people.
Does it hurt to get cavities filled? About how long does it take?

1. What do you do for a living?
2. Do you have Labor Day Off?
3. Is it a paid holiday for you?
So. How soon can I get a credit card?
Lets say that I need to pay up about $2000 worth of tuition before..... tuesday. So I can register for fall classes (a little late, I know. I didn't intend to go back this semester until this week). I will have the tuition money in a few weeks, but I need to pay this NOW. I'm okay with credit card interest.
I'm 19 and I have not-bad credit so far. I just need to pay this stupid debt.
Someone help me?
PS. I'm not really interested in other options. I just need to know about credit cards.
1. Are you pro or anti breaking up in public places?
2. Have you done this had this done to you before?
I'd have to say I'm anti, I think somethings should remain private.
WHAT SHOULD I EAT FOR LUNCH?!
I am so terribly indecisive about what I eat (not because I'm picky but because I am...indecisive) and I have been staring at the word lunch for so long that it transformed into the word lynch and then morphed into a small jumble of nothingness so it no longer referred to a meal but rather...nothing. Clearly lack of food is the culprit for all of this crazy talk so someone please...help.
Alright, why am I still not getting e-mail notification for comments?
For those of you that have fainted before, what did you experience before waking up?
I've fainted twice, and the first time I lost vision, but could still hear somewhat clearly. The second time I lost my hearing completely but could see. I'm interested in this because I'm in a Sensations/Perceptions Psychology class and we were discussion brain functions today.
Do you use a flat-iron to straighten your hair? If so, what kind is it, and how well does it work?
What is/are your favorite Friends quote(s)?
I think I broke my bum on the weekend. If I cracked my tailbone (which I might have done because it be REALLY hurtin' 5 days later) what would my dr. do for me? He can't put my ass in a sling (although my ass is assuredly IN a sling with the S/A, over how I damaged it) so other than serving me pain meds (which he won't, the bastard) I am probably just wasting my time to go see him, right?
What song(s) instantly put you in a good mood? Just dance around, sing out loud, have fun songs?
Also, Modern Art or Moving To L.A.?
And also, which is your favorite Belle & Sebastian song?
My current job sucks ass and I probably won't be there much longer anyway. Moving onward! Are there any work-from-home jobs that actually work? I know that any job out there requires commitment and dedication, but there are some enterprises that are destined to fail from the get go. Those are the ones that I want to avoid. So, to arrange my questions in neat order:
Are there any work-from-home jobs that actually work?
What are some warning signs of outright ripoffs?
I watch a lot of Friends. Way more than any normal human. Yesterday I was watching my Season 5 DVDs, and I noticed that Matthew Perry is missing the tip of his middle finger on his right hand. I can't believe I never noticed that before.
(What I also can't believe is that in the season 5 Thanksgiving episode, they do an arc about how Chandler lost his pinky toe - it just seems weird to me that they'd make a big joke out of that and not even mention the fact that he's missing part of a finger, too. But I digress.)
So...what is something that you can't believe took you so long to notice?
Maxwell vs. memorex-
who does it better?
Does highlighting in a college textbook depreciate its value? If you're buying a used textbook, does the highlighting or lack thereof sway your decision in any manner?
I'm losing weight (woohoo!) and my question for you lovely people is.....
Is it time to buy a smaller sized pair of jeans when the pair you currently wear are so loose that you don't need to unbutton/unzip them to take them off? This is what is happening with my current jeans. I am planning on going into a few shops and trying on a smaller size but I'm impatient and want to see what you guys think first. What do you reckon my chances are of fitting into one size smaller?
And secondly...Say you have something on your mind. Something/somone. You don't work or anything and so, with all the spare time, this thing is ALL you ever think about. What can you do to stop yourself from thinking about it? (Aside from looking for a job, I'm doing that already) I need something/anything to stop me thinking of this thing so much!!!
Thank you all you wonderful people *big grin*
My car insurance is up for renewal at the end of this month, and this is the first time I WON'T be able to pay it off all at once. So, I'm going to be needing an extra $81 dollars a month, on top of all my other bills. Not to mention the money I owe my parents for car repairs from a couple weeks ago. And the money I owe my boyfriend.
See where I'm going?
I seriously need to stick to a budget. I am not good at making one, and even worse at sticking to one. Do you have any tips for making and using a budget? Also, are there any free programs out there to help you create a budget?
I am looking for a diet supplement. Something to help me lose a few inches and gain muscle. I have used MetRx in the past, and I am considering EAS (because John Elway and Shannon Sharpe used it!). I am not looking for something like slim fast, nor do I want to be a muscle head weight lifter.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
best self tanner you've ever used?
best for face?
What's something good to put on the nice patch of roadburn on my shoulder from a bicycle accident? It feels dry and hurts and I want to moisturize it but I don't want to put typical moisturizer on it because its probably full of chemicals. Would aloe vera be better? Any other ideas?
Also it possible to break a BIG blood vessel if you hit it hard enough? I have this weird painful bump right on top of a big vein and it looks kinda like I may have somehow popped it during my accident... not sure if that's even possible. Anything I can do for that?
Am I correct in assuming that 'passed' is a verb meaning something that has gone by, and 'past' is a noun meaning before this time?
Why do I see 'past' being used as a verb constantly? Even in books? Are they interchangeable?
(does this post make any sense at all?)
So I decided on doing, "Do left handed people see optical illusions differently than right handed people do?" as my science fair project.
Does anyone know a good website that talks about how left handed people supposedly use the other side of their brain. Also any websites that talk about how optical illusions challenge the brain or something. Thank you.
I make jewelry with healing stones and crystals but have leant my cross-referencing book to a friend. Can anyone tell me if the energies in hematite and lead crystal are compatible? I know one cleanses another and it might be vice versa but not 100% sure if I remember correctly. I want to avoid any conflicting charging/discharging of energy. Any help would be appreciated!!
Is your default user icon a picture of you?
Mine used to be but I've been using my Napoleon Dynamite one for a while now. The only icon with me in it is the one seen here.

What songs are a must on a Reggae CD?

What is the fastest tried & true method for healing a cut/scrape?
A few odd years ago there was a music video that involved a man being hit repeatedly by cars only to get back to his feet and get hit again. And again. It was banned from MTV. But not...

I am very close to one of my Aunts. She has been divorced for about 25 years from a man that was physically and emotionally abusive to her and her child (my cousin). She has dated a little over the years, but she doesn't and won't make the effort to go out and meet people. I know that she would love to meet someone, but I think she's afraid of getting hurt again, or afraid that she is too old (shes 60) for anything to happen for her. She is a really fun, interesting person that deserves and wants to be happy. I don't know how to get her to meet someone, since she doesn't go out and I don't know many men her age.
Anyway, my cousin (her daughter) and I were talking about what would happen if we made her one of those Match.com (or other dating website) profiles. My cousin is willing to pay for it. The problem is, I don't know how to go about "finding" her someone on there, or setting it up so that the man isn't weirded out by what we are doing. How unethical would it be to set up dates for her with people and then tell her that we "know" someone who would like to meet her? What do you think? How can I find my 60-year old Aunt a man?
I'm sorry if this is a really dumb question.. but I don't know how to get songs ONTO my iPod!?
I have a mini, if this helps. I've had it for 10 months but almost never use it but now I want to and can't remember what to do.
Got it! Thanks
I have no frebreeze left, or fabric softener (to make home-made 'febreeze'), I'm also cheap. I have vanilla extract, and I loveee the way vanilla smells. Could I dilute the extract with water, and throw it in a spray bottle? Or is that completely rediculous?
Is there any way to make all of your journal entries friends only at once? Or is there anyway to delete a large amount of entries at a time?
My former employer is being a dick. He owes me money from like 2 months ago, and isn't answering phone calls or emails. What should/can I do?
I just watched 7th Heaven for the frist time in about 4 years. It was the episode where Mary told her mom and dad she married Carlos. Well my question has to do with Simon, towards the end of the show they were talking about an acident that Simon got into, and he felt very guilty. I was jsut wondering what happened. He said something about telling Justin he is sorry. I dont know who Justin is.
This is so lame, but I need any help I can get. I'm running for class office of my freshmen class (Lehigh) and I have to write a 100 word platform, and I have no clue where to start. I don't want to be cliche and write all my past activities and crap, sooo do you guys know any quotes or something/advice to give me?
Paris Hilton once said, “Every woman should have four pets in her life. A mink in her closet, a jaguar in her garage, a tiger in her bed, and a jackass who pays for everything.” Now, most of us aren’t as privileged as Ms. Hilton since we are just college students, but as Treasurer, I vow to

I have a friend who left a couple of weeks ago on a peace corps assignment in Kazahkstan (I don't know if that is spelled correctly). I'm going to send her a little package next week with some cookies and a note in it. What else do you think she might need/appreciate/can't get over there that she might miss from here? Thanks!
So - you're invited to a party where you have to dress as something that begins with the initial of your first name.

What do you do when online and not talking to people or updating lj? Any cool websites you could share?
I read wikipedia.org, www.damninteresting.com, and read a couple online webcomics.
I'm going to Miami this weekend and I want to try to get in one of the swanky clubs. What can I wear that will get me into one of the clubs? I'm going with my boyfriend. What does he need to wear? Should I dress skanky or classy? Should he wear clubbing type clothes? a suit? something else?
Please post pictures if you can. Thanks.
