Background:

One of my friends at work in another department has started dating a guy in my department. This guy isn't a bad guy, they've known each other for years but he has a few nasty qwerks, including being an alcoholic.

Question:

Am I out of line to say something about this to her? My thought would be to say something along the lines of "he doesn’t seem like your type because he drinks allot"

Am I out of line to politely criticize the guy she is dating for what is probably a reasonable reason?

Thanks TQC!!

Do you ever feel...BAD for people in commercials?

I feel bad for little kids in bed wetting commercials. I figure their parents are stage parents who forced them into it (what kid wants to be the face for bed wetting?), and their friends must laugh at them.

I am totally obsessed with movies about people being captive in one place for the whole movie. Like Saw, where they're stuck in a room for the whole film. Or Cube, where a bunch of characters wake up and they're stuck in a cube. Or Phone Booth, where the whole story takes place in a single phone booth. Or Speed, where the characters are confined to a bus...

Anyway, you get the idea. Could anyone here possibly recommend any movies that have similar kinds of storylines/settings? Perferably of the horror/supsense (or action) genre.

Thanks! :)

What are examples of when you've used perimeter vs. area? (real life or word problems)

We use the basics already
Area: carpet, laying sod, painting a wall, laying tile, wallpaper
Perimeter: putting up a fence, putting up a wallpaper border, making a picture frame

What other ideas can you come up with?

The reason I asked the tooth brushing questions is this. 

My boyfriend is quite gross - Can I just be honest here and not be harshly judged? I really don't know how to not feel the way I feel about this, but the way I feel is pretty mean! 

He has a hard time taking a shower daily - he usually takes one every other day at BEST - and he really isn't the smell good type of guy.
I don't think he has ever used to been in the practice of using a cologne - it would be nice.
He eats the smelliest foods and I guess with his difficult upbringing, his teeth are just gross. He plans on going to the dentist soon, but his teeth have taken a toll, I can't imagine the plaque all up in there.
He is sniffling in the morning, the luggie sniffle and it grosses me out. 
He has to smoke a cigarette before he gets out of bed and stink up the bedroom.
When he brushes his teeth, he puts his face under the faucet and sucks the water - I'm sorry, but I wouldn't even let my child do that.
And his toothbrush always has globs of tpaste in the bottom.
And up until recently, he would lean over the sink while brushing and for some reason, that just irritates the bejesus out of me - it's mindless. *EDIT* I would like to clarify that this is annoying because of his over-all inability to think outside the box. If he were a thinker and admirable, I think this wouldnt bother me at all. (I know I sound like an awful bitch, my apologues ahead of time.)

Honestly, I could go on, but you get the point. He is a very nice person - very nice. Not the most intelligent and as I've stated, kind of just all around gross. I honestly never meant to be that serious with him - just wanted to..well, it doesn't matter. Fact is, I'm a moron and now I'm pregnant and all I can do is look at him and be completely grossed out. How do I not break this dude's ego down and help him start acting like a man?It would be nice if I could respect him, but damn if respect isn't earned! Am I just being too judgemental or am I normal?

I just set up a wireless network with a Netgear WGT624v3. There's a desktop upstairs that connects to it via a wireless ethernet card, and a desktop downstairs that is connected through the router/modem combination.

For some reason, my connection keeps dropping down here, at like...15 minute intervals. The computer upstairs isn't affected at ALL. And when the connection drops, it shows it as being still connected at great speeds, but it just refuses to load websites all of a sudden. If I reboot, it's miraculously fixed for 15 minutes.

The Netgear website says to disable WZC and that resolves "disconnection issues", but that hasn't helped.

Any ideas? Or some place else I can ask this question?

Say there is an graduate program that is 33 months long. On the website under Expenses, it says that the "Tuition for the 2007-2008 academic year is $33,500." Does this mean that is per year (i.e. multiply by about 2.5 to get the whole cost) or do you think it's the cost of the whole program? Thanks.

ETA: The reason I'm confused is because I found info on a different university in Cali that offers the same program. It's here (http://pcap.stanford.edu/financial.html) and also dictates it for the "2007-2008" academic year. It says "3,850/quarter" and there are 5 quarters in the whole program. So the total price of this WHOLE program is $33,468. What gives? And this graduate program runs full-time, even in the summer.

hey. I used to babysit a few years back, and I recently was talking to an (older) friend of mine who expressed wishes to have me babysit for his two young kids. Wondering what the going rate is per hour these days. Back when I did it for three dollars per hour per kid, plus ten if it was overnight. Back then I had no driver's license, so they had to pick me up, so no gas money was involved, if people usually charge for that (I really have no clue). I still have no idea if that was average or not, I always thought it was pretty low considering the kids were the spawn of Satan, but it was for family, so I don't know if that impacts it either.

Also - how much extra is it appropriate to charge for New Years Eve?

Do you do anything special for your pet on his/her birthday?

I'm beginning to wonder if I come from a breed of freaks... The dogs in our family get new toys and a little scoop of vanilla ice cream on their birthdays. Apparently this weird.


And if you get a new toy for the pet, do you just take the tags off and toss it to them or do you stick it in a paper bag for them to "unwrap"?

I must admit that watching the dogs navigate the living room with their muzzles buried in a paper bag, their jaws locked on the newest squeaky toy - perhaps the funniest bit of entertainment yet.

Okay, so once in a while I'll pass someone or hang out with someone and they'll smell really, really good-- girls, mostly, and they'll smell like they just got out of the shower (smell of some fragranted soap, or strongly of conditioner/shampoo without overpowering, etc). How do you manage to capture that smell and make it stay for a long time?

2. What was the first thing (if you've ever) bought on Amazon? You can look in your order history. (apparently, mine was the Afro Celt Sound System album, "Further in Time")

3. Do you ever post anonymous comments? Why?

4. How often do you use the LJ tracking feature? What do you use it for-- certain entries, certain comment threads, etc. ?

I finally watched it last weekend, I'd been borrowing it from someone for close to a month :\. I liked it.

2. Do you think in order to hate someone/something you have to understand it completely?
I guess it depends on what it is. I know some people who say that they hate math BECAUSE they don't understand it.

3. Do you like letting people drive your car? Do you like driving other people's cars?
No to both. I don't like people messing w/ my mirrors & seat positioning and I don't like changing other people's mirrors & seats either.

4. Do you know how long you've been a member of thequestionclub? Is there an easy way to find out?
I'm not sure I'm guessing sometime around August/September of this year.

5. Do you have at least one friend or family member who only seems to call to gloat about something? What about one that only seems to call when something's wrong/they need a favor?

I have an issue with my credit card, where money was stolen and a long, drawn out story of I switched from myBank card to my Credit card, got confirmation. When time to autopay, it took from my Back card instead of the CC. Few days later, I have unexplained charges where my card is physically in my hand, but the charges were across the country (in physical stores, not internet ones).

So...where is LJ located. They are THE only possible explaination for what is happening to me and my CC.

I've been feeling sick to my stomach for about two days now. Aside from drinking ginger ale and eating Saltines, what are some other ways to ease the symptoms of a sick stomach? I already have some Immodium.

EDIT: Eating plain cooked rice is supposed to be good, too, right? I remember my mom used to always say it'll "bind you up." Will jasmine rice work just as well?

I would really like some new ringtones, unfortunately everything I keep searching for finds no results. I guess I never thought about the limited selection. Is there any place I can buy ringtones with a bit more wide of variety?

Verizon Wireless is my phone carrier.

Help? I don't want to suffocate her but I don't want her to feel forgotten by friends either. And I want to do/give something for/to the baby, as it is her birthday, after all.

New Year's Dinner Suggestions? [Dec. 28th, 2006|07:22 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[piperredfern]
I posted this to hip_domestics, so I'll just copy that (edits and all!) instead of re-typing it. I know it's kind of a weird place to post this, but I figured the more places I ask, the more range I'll get!

I need some advice/pointers/etc.

My boyfriend's sister and her husband might be coming over on New Year's Eve. It's the first time I'll be meeting her, so I definitely want to make a good impression. Thing is, she's a vegetarian. I've asked the boyfriend unit what types of things she likes and what to make, and all he said was "pasta" (he's supposedly going to find out soem more and get back to me on it).

So, I'm thinking of making noodles, and having chicken on the side for us meat eaters (the rest of us). Now, what kind of sauce (besides cream sauces; boyfriend doesn't like them) should I make? She's not a vegan, so she's fine with dairy products and the like. The only other thing I can think of is making two sauces as well, one a cream and one some type of oil sauce (which my boyfriend does like, or marina, but then that involves fixing beef to mix in it [yes, he's a picky eater]).

What kind of vegetarian friendly side dishes would go well with pasta, especially since my SO isn't big on veggies? I was thinking of stuffing (the kind for pork, since it's the only ones without actual meat in it) and spinach, but I need to find out if she'll eat spinach (which the boyfriend won't). The only other side I know he'll eat without complaint is mashed potatoes, but that seems weird to me to go with pasta. I could always do garlic bread or rolls, I suppose, but I guess I just want some suggestions on how I can approach this? I've looked at a bunch of vegetarian dishes but so many don't sound very good to me (then again, I'm not a vegetarian), so tried and true recipes would be preferred. Anything that helps save money is nice, too!

Thanks in advance!

Edit to clarify: I should have mentioned that she's fine being around meat that is being consumed, she just personally doesn't eat it. According to my boyfriend, she just never really liked the taste of meat, and rarely ate it growing up.

Yet another edit: My boyfriend in general loves Italian food, so if there's any kind of vegetarian friendly Italian side that I'm not aware of, please do mention it! His sister's food preference gets priority over his, but I'd like to try to please as many people as possible. Also I'll add that he has eaten some cream sauces when I've made them to go over chicken but they're made with cream of chicken, so if anyone knows of a really tasty cream sauce that he might like, then that would definitely help!

Thanks again for all the help and suggestions; I really appreciate it!

For a Christmas present I received a Homedics Pedicure Spa Salon Footbath with Heat. Model HL-200. If anyone else has the same product, can you help me?

I plugged it in for the first time tonight and something does not seem right. It makes tons of noise! I can't tell if it's supposed to make this much noise or if the motor is binding in some way.

I tried calling the Homedics customer support line but their hours do not coincide nicely with my work hours. Not to mention the fact that they'd want me to send it in for service and that's a stupid amount of money. If I know that it's not supposed to make that noise out of the box, I'll have my parents (who bought it for me) take it back to the store where they bought it.

So, anyone have one and is anyone else's kinda noisy?

Very Important Question [Dec. 28th, 2006|08:44 pm]
The Question Club

[bluemuffins]
1.) A long time ago during the beginning of WW1 in Hungary (1914-1915ish?), my Great-Grandpa and my Grandpa Joseph were working on their farm along with my Grandpa's mother and sisters. Some people called Kossacks came along on horseback with huge swords and slaughtered a bunch of people, including my Grandpa's mother and most of his sisters. My Great-Grandpa, my Grandpa Joseph and his sister Anne were taken into some kind of slave labor/concentration camp in Hungary. They were eventually split up, and my Grandpa was taken to America by boat somehow and adopted to a another Hungarian couple in Ohio.

Long story short, he grew up, met another Hungarian lady named Mary and they had my Dad, who had me.

I don't know his last name, this is just about all I know about him. I only know his adopted last name, and his real first name along with this story...

Is there any research I can do to figure out his real last name, anything else about him? Did they keep adoption records back then? He died before I was born and I'm very curious. I tried Ancestry.com, it didn't help..

My ex-roommate just posted a bulletin on myspace about how the FDA has decided that products from cloned animals are safe for human consumption. From there, there's the separate conclusion that, because there's no effective difference between products from a cloned animal and a non-cloned animal, there is no need for labeling the product as cloned/non-cloned. Here is the article.

What are your thoughts? Be as vague or as detailed and specific as you want. (I love long answers.)

this has never happened before, and when i asked the two that i talked to how they got my nick, they said 'i don't know, it just popped up on my list' or something. i use trillian, and this didn't happen on AIM, MSN, or ICQ, only yahoo, and only tonight.
