There's this guy that works at the local Dunkin Donuts every Monday and Tuesday night. He's really funny, and he gives my friends and me discounts/free coffee. We like going to talk to him. (And get coffee, of course.)

Here's the problem. Last time I went there by myself and he was working (I go every Tuesday night, usually alone), he spent about 10 minutes trying to convince me to stay there until they closed. He actually asked me, "What would it take for you to stay after hours?" I was really creeped out. I mean, it's not like he's old, but I'm in college, and he's probably in his late thirties. To top it all off, I've ever really thought of myself as being that attractive, so to have this "old" guy hitting on me was definitely unexpected. Also, when I'm with me friends he's completely different--you'd never think that he'd do something like that. So here's my question, TQC:

Do I keep going in and getting the discounts, and just put up with the creepiness? Is that "using" him?
Should I just go through the drive-through?
Or am I just being paranoid?

Please help...this has really been bothering me for a while.

Ugh, long story here, but I'll shorten it.  I'm on Craigslist.  I see an adorable pomeranian.  I want her.  I tell the lady, all is well and she tells me I can make 'payments' on the dog, I give her $200, she gives me the puppy, YAY, ALL IS WELL!  I didn't sign anything.  I take puppy to the vet, (within 3  days of getting her), Mr. Vet goes, "Oh this dog is showing signs of abuse".  Said puppy has MAJOR behavorial issues, so I look for some assistance with her on CL.  Now, the woman freaks the fuck out.  I don't mention her name, anything, just the situation.  She wants puppy back.  I tell her hell no.  She accuses me of being 'evil' and tells me to 'shove my evil money up my ass, she don't want it.'.  Stupidly, I did not save this conversation.  Flash forward to about 3 days ago, I am getting INSANE im's from about 15 people telling me to give the dog back, etc etc.  This nutbag of a woman, is telling people that I run a pet sitting service, and that I am refusing to give the dog back, and she is taking me to court.  Awesome.  Oh wait no, what the fuck? This woman also 'had cancer' and used this as her sob story. I offered to give her the dog back, and she doesn't want to take her, she is nuts.  She also does not know my name, or the exact town where I live, but does know my phone number.  Sadly, I have no conversations of her admitting anything, and I hope that she DID save our convos, becuase I've never said anything that'd get me in trouble.  So onto the questions:

1. TQC, am I fucked here? Aparently there are a bunch of people going with her to court.
2. Can emails and IM conversations hold up in court? I would think not since they can be changed so easily...
3. Would you be scared of this woman? I am, thank god she doesn't know where I live!
4. I have to change my main email due to the harassment from all these random people, insulting me, my daughter, everything.  She called me a 'fat pig' ON craigslist, haha.  What things would you change if you had to do this?
5. What the fuck should I do here???

Thank you SO MUCH to anyone who is reading this, I'm kinda getting upset.  This is not my personality whatsoever, and I have a perfectly clean record, etc. etc.  I also live in a 2 br apartment, which makes a pet sitting service impossible, so I'm sure she'll be beat there. 

Thanks guys.

ETA, Go to google.  Type in Britsnbrat@aol.com   those are the 'postings' that she is putting up everywhere.

I was reading some Peter/Susan (Narnia) fics and in one of the reviews for a fic someone said something about incest being illegal "back in the day" or something. To which in my head I thought "Incest is still illegal, babe." But then I thought maybe this person is from somewhere where it is legal... but couldn't think or find mention of any such place. So. Here's the question:

Does anyone know of any country where incest is legal - I mean blood relatives allowed to procreate and/or get married? In this case, I'm talking about siblings (but feel free to mention cousins and aunts and such too).
Also, is it legal to marry your stepsibling? What if your parent had adopted them? Even if there is no blood, is it illegal?

Thanks guys!

1. Do you ever feel inferior to people shorter/smaller than you?
2. Do you ever feel intimidated by people taller/bigger than you?

I was at a bar last night, and I met a friend of a friend who is shorter than I am. I'm 4'11" and she was only about 4'9".  It was good to be able to talk to someone without having to look up; I didn't really feel inferior per-se.
I get intimidated by tall people all the time. I don't like going to crowded places because I fear getting elbowed in the head... it's not fun.

BA v. MBA?

In about a year I'll be graduating with a BA in Marketing... while job browsing, it has come to my attention that if I go on to get an MBA (Masters degree in business), I'll almost double my occupational worth (no, really?). So of course,  I'm seriously considering doing this. However, I'll be $70K+ in debt when I graduate just from a simple 4 year degree, and my GPA is about 3.4.

So, what I'm asking is: for those of you that have gone on to acheive an MBA, was it worth it? How hard was it, and what were some of the things you had to do to get it? With only a 3.4, do I even stand a chance? Any general information of advice would be great.

Thank you all.

Atheist community

I want to find an LJ community for atheism, but when I do an interest search for "atheism", I get hundreds of results. I can't find any big or serious ones.

What is a good Atheist community you recommend?

okra, veggies, juice & booze, and summer semester

1. If you like okra, how do you cook/prepare it?

2. What is your favorite vegetable?

3. What is your favorite (juice) + (alcohol) drink?

4. Are you enrolled/enrolling in summer semester? What classes are you taking?

My answers:
1. I had okra for the first time in an Indian restaurant last week and I thought it was really good. I bought a bag of frozen okra and cooked it as I would broccoli or carrots. After I drained it, there were weird stringy things oozing from the okra. A friend of mine mentioned this happened sometimes, so I'm wondering if there's a way to cook okra to prevent the oozy strings.
2. asparagus
3. I don't have one.
4. Yes, if FAFSA comes through. I'll be taking an English class and possibly a math class.

I'm the editor of my school newspaper and feel that one of the writers didn't actually write most of the article she turned in--the article is extremely elaborate and uses words most 8th graders have yet to hear of, and the supposed writer is a student who talks about My Space whenever she gets the chance.* I highly doubt that she wrote this article not only for the previously mentioned reason, but because of the language she uses outside of this piece of writing.

With that being said, how would I go about checking the reliability of this article? I've Googled to no such luck.

*Note--there is nothing wrong with using My Space; however, this is one student who likely spends the majority of her free time using the website, which causes me to speculate the fact that she actually had a hand in writing this.

What is the median income per household for your city? (You can find it on Wikipedia). How much does your household make?
$41,450 median, we make $90,000 total.

How many people live in your city?
2,350, but that was in 2000. I'd say it's maybe 3500 by now, though.

Ladies: do your boobs pass the pencil test?
No. :( Darn you 36Ds!
EDIT: The boob test is when you put a pencil in the crease below your boob and see if it stays there or falls.

Are your parents any good with the internets?
My dad completely does not understand ANYTHING that has to do with computers. Then again, he's 71 years old, so I can forgive him that.

Do you know anyone who has been on a reality/makeover/whatever TV show? 

Why is there so much violence in inner cities? 
Not sure! That's why I want to hear your opinions.

Books ...

Basically, my daughter's been going through some serious health issues lately, and ended up missing so much school that she wouldn't be able to graduate this year. I pulled her and will be homeschooling her so she can get caught up and graduate to the next grade level and go to a new school next school year. The problem, we discovered, is that her formerly fabulous school, has really sucked bad this year. She's pretty far behind on all of her subjects compared to the school she'll be going to. I can easily get her caught up on all of her subjects, but I need ideas on literature. She's in 9th grade, but reads at a more advanced level. She loves books along the lines of Whale Talk and Their Eyes Were Watching God.

So, my question to you is ... what were some of your favorite books when you were anywhere from 14 to say 18? If you're in that age group, what are some of the books you enjoy now? What books really touched you and made you think? The books do not have to be school appropriate as I do not have to follow the same curriculum the public schools have to follow. Any books that were just fun to read or that you read more than once? The theme doesn't really matter as long as you enjoyed the book. I'm pretty much looking for ideas so any and all subjects are welcomed. Well, except for porn lol.

possibly the most ridiculous religious question ever

10:14 AM 3/11/07 · When you think about it, there's kind of a disturbing similarity. I refer to the circumstances upon which Jesus' mother got (how to put this delicately?) knocked up. She's lying there in bed one night when she finds herself very aware of a presence, enveloped in an all encompassing bright light, and after an indeterminable amount of time she wakes to find she'd been left with a (if you will) implant.

This resulted in a very healthy child with a number of unusual abilities who we all know and love. Well, all of us know and some of us love...those rather tight in their masculinity just like him bunches and give him proper respect.

However, let us take the circumstances of the impregnation that brought Jesus about.

Is it just me or does this seem remotely similar to any number of alien abduction scenarios?

Then there's all the mythos/conspiracy theories regarding a human/alien hybrid.

So, would you say this is the most ridiculous religious notion you've ever heard?

What are some ways to wear straight long hair (longer than waist length) while running out and about to keep it from going everywhere and in the way? In a ponytail it'll still find ways to tangle because there's just so much of it, and I can't seem to get braids to hold without hairs trying to escape. Makes me look unkempt.

Looking up hair styles online doesn't seem to be helping, because I don't want anything elaborate or involving styling products they're trying to sell me. Sad face.
EDIT: Also please post instructions on how to, if possible? I fail at hair.


1. Have you ever dined-and-dashed at a restaurant?

2. Say you're with a group of friends at an expensive restaurant, and they all decide to dine-n-dash once they see the bill's more than they thought it would be. Do you go along with them? What do you do?

3. Hypothetical. For $300, would you be willing to dine-n-dash during a late afternoon meal at a diner (when it isn't too crowded) after having raised a notably large bill, and THEN...go back the following day at the same time, wearing the same clothes, demand to sit at the same table and order the same food? Odds are, the same wait person will be working. You'll get paid $500 ($200 more) if you go a third day in a row at the same time in the same clothes.

It is my Spring Break, and my boss is Jewish, so therefore today I have no class and no work! I would really like to go the beach, but I think it is a little too cloudy today, so I won't be doing that. Guys, what should I do? I am alone in my endeavors today, but I have a car, and I live in Los Angeles. Should I visit the park and the fake lake? A museum maybe, even though I've been to all of them? What would you do?

1- For anyone who lives in/near the Buffalo, NY area, do you know of any low rate hotels that will take people in at 1 in the morning? O_o I'm probably gonna call around anyway, but doesn't hurt to get recommendations. Closer to the airport, the better!

2- I haven't been on a plane in a long time, so... What would you give someone who has just gotten off an airplane, to stave off the crappy feeling you get when ya get off the plane?

3- I know you should be at the gate way way way before takeoff if you're on the plane, but... How early will they let people loiter around the gate in any given area to pick someone up? :/

4- Uhh, how are you today?

What songs include your name in the title or lyrics? Do you like the songs?

for me, I have Taylor by Jack Johnson, and Taylor the Latte Boy, Kristin Chenoweth (even if I am a girl.) Usually I hate Jack Johnson, but I don't mind this song, except for the bad rhymes like "Such a tough enchilada, filled up with nada". I do love Kristin Chenoweth, and Taylor the Latte Boy.

Do people constantly sing the songs with your name in them when you're around?

If I ever work at Starbucks, I'm sure one of my friends will come in at 8:11 and ask for a double latte and begin to sing.

Edit again: I tried to clean it up and now there's egg in my hair. I have very long hair but still! *even sadder face* Perhaps I should give up on cooking for the day.

Also, speaking of "block user", I have this one girl blocked. How then is she able to comment on a video I posted??? I mean all it says is "cool video" or something harmless like that, but the fact that she was able to write ANYTHING when she is BLOCKED kinda annoys me.

Alright, so there’s this extra credit project for my Sociology of Health & Health Care class - no, I’m not asking anyone to do it for me. For it, we pick a disease/illness and research it, writing about how social factors affect that disease, we were given the example of depression in the poor.

If you were doing this project, what disease would you choose? I seem to be overwhelmed by the possibilities so I was wondering what others thought would be interesting.

Shrimp w/Broccoli
Shrimp w/Cashew Nuts
Shrimp w/Garlic Sauce
Curry Shrimp w/Onion
Hunan Shrimp
Szechuan Shrimp
Kung Pao Shrimp

2.I didn't tip because it didn't click with me that the receipt said that until I had signed it and handed it back.
You think they spit in my food?

I never would have thought to tip someone who just took my order. If I had paid cash I certainly wouldn't have known they expected tips for carry out orders.

Not learning in high school

Do you think someone who never paid attention in high school, but has a thirst for knowledge has a chance to relearn everything you're suppose to learn in high school in college? Especially history and English. I'm so interested in history now, but it doesn't help that I started to become interested in it my senior year. I didn't retain any of the information I learned in any of my history classes because I attended class merely for credit. Now, I have intrinsic motivation and hope to learn a lot about history, but I'm not going to major it in.

Not just history, but everything. I've come to realize how enlightening and enriching knowledge is. And I regret not cherishing my free education in high school.

for the great literary minds of TQC

We have to write a term paper for my The Bible as Literature and Philosophy class. We can pretty much do anything, like write a traditional term paper, write a play, a story, whatevs as long as it has to do with the Bible SOMEHOW (they are being quite lenient actually).  Another example: one could write a paper about how different religions or cultures view Hell. I've decided to take a couple books (mostly the ones dealing Adam & Eve eating from the forbidden tree) from Milton's Paradise Lost and kind of modernize them into prose-style writing, and reverse the roles of Adam and Eve to make Adam the one who eats the fruit and is riddled with stereotypes (since Eve is kind of portrayed as this sexual being who's dumb as hell). 
EDIT: I forgot. I'm also writing it from Satan's/the serpent's perspective. Oops.

1. Is this a stupid idea?
2. If you had to write my paper in general, what would you write about?
3. I'm using quotes from Paradise Lost as sort of transition points in my story.  I'm really bad with citing things; does anyone know how to properly quote them (since it's a poem... that's broken up into books... which are then broken up into lines... I get confused :X)
4. Do you think women get a bad rep in the Bible (mostly Old Testament)/Paradise Lost?

I bought a green canvas tote bag that I was planning to draw on with those markers that you use to write on shirts. The bag I bought says "No pre-washing is necessary to decorate" then it gives me a list of directions of how to wash the bag if needed.  The marker I'm using says to apply it on prewashed fabric. 

So my question is, do I have to wash the bag before I draw on it? Does it matter? What happens if I don't wash the bag?

The marker I'm using is "DecoFabric" and the canvas tote bag is (I think) "Totally You"

OK, True or False Time. 

1) Oogloplogs and Dijiks are the same thing.
2) Oogloplogs and Dijiks are not the same thing.

One of these is true, one of these is false.  You know that much.  But you have no idea wtf is an oogloplog or a Djik.  Do you:

A) Play it safe: answer them both true or both false, knowing you'll get 50% right either way.
B) Go all or nothing: answer one true, one false, either get 100% or 0% correct.

I always go with A, but when I was little I would go B to the extreme, I would make 1 initial guess and let that 1 guess influence all my other answers.  It was bad.

I'm reading a war story, and I keep wondering...what is "the shit?" exactly? (It's Tim O'Brien's "Speaking of Courage" if it helps). I also heard it on the movie "Rushmore".

I tried Googling it, but I get references for feces, or the term, "the shit" (these pancakes are the shit). But what exactly does it mean to "be in the shit"?

Quick cash

So,  Stevie Nicks and Björk are coming to a place near me, and these are like, my two favorite women in the world, I gotta get quick cash for tickets, what's a way to make quick cash, without getting a full-time job? Anyone have any ideas, and prostitution is pretty much out of the question, unless I get really desperate.

Also, what's your favorite plant or flower? :D

Alright - so a long time ago I stumbled upon a site where this guy photoshops -creepily- realistic rotting flesh on fingers. I just remember it was like.. finga skin or something?

Anybody know what I am talking about?

mouthfulofrain has an icon of it. If that means anything.

Sorry for the annoying personal question, but I'm desperate.

Okay .. so I went out with a boy for a year and a few months and we broke up on bad terms about 7 months ago .. We don't really talk much, but lately he's been hinting at wanting to be friends again .. I'm still not really over him, but his birthday's coming up and I want to make him a card .. I need some opinions on what I wrote on the inside :

Happy birthday! I hope your day is great and all that. I don't think I'm mature enough to want to be your friend. There's just too much to forget about. But! it is your birthday and I didn't want to be a jerk and ignore it. Have fun being 18. It's my favorite number and it's a good age to be. People will take you way more seriously and stuff. I'm running out of room so I'll end with another HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

- Sarah

Do you think that's light and airy enough? Should I even be sending him a card?

He was my first important boyfriend and first heart break .. I don't know how I should handle it. Any other advice?

My knee really hurts and is keeping me from sleeping.

Do I take a vicodin knowing that I'll be groggy all day tomorrow?

Or, do I just leave it alone more and hope to fall asleep?  (I'm out of any other painkiller except  tylenol, which does nothing really, and advil-PM)

The Amish

I'm working on a project about the Amish and I came across some interesting data, but couldn't find any explanations ... That's why I have some questions:

- When do the Amish men when straw hats and when the black ones?
- Why do they oppose buttons and belts?
- Why do the Old Order oppose the curtains and carpets?
- Is there a difference between shunning and excommunication?

If anyone happens to know the answers to these, I'd be really grateful! :)

Fat chance, but it might be worth a shot...

Does anyone know when the 1st Brigade from The 10th Mountain Division in Fort Drum, NY plans on deploying again?
Yahoo News released something today that literally made me sick, I'm not going to worry any more about it though unless someone else confirms that its indeed true.

I've X-posted in several Military Community's... no responses as of yet. I've also Googled, nothing found.


This is from an Australian skit show, parodying Australian censorship laws and how there are lots worse things that could be said that aren't on the censorship list (that apparently can't be said before a certain time of night)

Does it offend you? Does the original word being on tv offend you? Is your country very into censorship? Australia isn't so much, nothing like America or the UK.
