I just emailed ebay about it anyway.

I am not sexually active, and the smell would be my only symptom.
Is there something wrong with me or am I over-reacting?
How long do you think it's going to be before kids are being named after characters? What would you think if someone named their kid Harry Potter or Albus Dumbledore? (Let's say they actually had the last name to pass down)
Why? Well I've had a horrible horrible falling out (we still havent even 'broken up') with my long time boyfriend.. I am incredibly lonely. I have 2 friends I hang out with every now and then. I am really not allowed to leave the house. Well, I am. But my father is very sick and I feel guilty leaving him home all alone. He worries alot and I dont want to give him another heart attack. So I spend all day. Alone. I work part time as a waitress. But it isnt helping much.
I really do miss my mom and the rest of my family that live in Atlanta.
I am thinking about moving. I have been thinking about this for quite a while. The only thing is that, I would have to leave college. Atleast for a year. =/ But I still wan to continue my education. And if I move, my mom guaranteed me a full time job at her work. So I will be able to save up for tuition and everything.
I just feel like I dont have anything here. Not just a boyfriend. Fuck that. But I dont have family. Or friends. I go days without any human contact. Other than my dad. And I am positive that I am slowly going insane.
I just dont know what to do. =/ Should I move? Just quit my job, take a leave from college, pack my shit, and go?
2. Have you ever been to a tanning salon for a fake tan?
1. Yup, my boyfriend is a massage therapist :)
2. I went to a tanning place for the first time ever yesterday, but waited outside while my boyfriend got a mystic tan... haha
If your best friend sent you messages about 'something leather' on MSN (which is like AIM) and her "tranny looking guy" friend didn't believe you when you said it was cow skin (you're vegan so you are OFFENDED), and then he said some mean things sparkle ponies chocolate chip cookies and it hurt your feelings.
Do you think getting him fired is a good form of retaliation?
PLS HURRY, I need to know NOW so I can get back at him before school tomorrow.

3) I did.
5) On occasion. ; )
Weirdly and very randomly, a rolled sheet of "Double Polished Clear Vinyl" was in the box. I'd say it's about the size of a poster.
I have no idea what one would do with a sheet of vinyl, but it's kinda cool and I want to do something fun with it.
What would you do with a sheet of random vinyl?
I think it's ridiculous and a complete waste of money.
2. How are you today?
Tired and frustrated.
I ask because I tried on wedding dresses saturday and they squeezed me into a lingerie corset, and I woke up the next day with really sore abs and calves. I also got really drunk that night, so I'm not sure if it's from the corset or if I somehow hurt myself while drunk (but my fiance was with me the entire time, so I don't think I did...)
2) What kind of drunk are you?
I need a bit of pet advice:
My SO (boyfriend of three years) has a cat. This cat is some sort of tabby mix who is, for the lack of a better word, depressed.
I know this sounds weird, but I think animals do get depressed just as humans do. He isn't playful at all and doesn't use his scratchpost. Should we buy him catnip? Is catnip dangerous or addictive? (I heard it's like a drug, and I don't want to harm the cat)
Unfortunately for him, due to a complicated situation (we don't live on our own and SO's dad has OCD) the cat is confined to the basement. The basement is fairly large, and there is a workout room in it as well as a bedroom and of course, cat goes everywhere, as long as it's in the basement. Cat is six years old, and I think he's overweight. We feed him both dry and wet food from Friskies, so maybe that could be the problem. (actually the dry food is Whiskas, the wet food is Friskies)
How should we put him on a diet? By which I mean, how should we change his food and to which specialty food should we change it to?
We do try and take him outside, and we do have a leash for him, but he hates being in the leash. Should we buy a different leash for him?
Thank you very much for reading all this.
a: submarine sandwich
b: Po' boy
e: other and will explain in comments
ETA: If you are curious about what other people call sandwiches around the country, check out Sandwiches That You Will Like. It is a 2002 PBS documentary by Rick Sebak of WQED. It talks about unique sandwich offerings of cities across the United States are shown, from those that are often found outside of their city of origin (cheesesteak from Philadelphia) to the virtually unknown (St. Paul in St. Louis). I watched it yesterday with my husband and it was really interesting.
Quick drying stuff would be great, because I lack patience, and stuff I can just make in the pot it's going to be in would be good too, 'cause I don't so much have anywhere to mix things.
What should I buy?
This girl is the biggest liar I know, and I'm 90% sure she's making this up so she can keep my cat. Just recently she also lied to a friend of mine, saying that I granted her permission to hold the keys to my self-storage space. !!! Now, obviously I'm going to ask some vets if what she says is true, but in the meantime (I don't have a phone yet) I'm going to ask you guys. Can cats on special diets take flea and tick medication?

I have a new font that I want to make something out of and the letter J is one of the best letters.
It was wonderful- sliced chicken breast, onions, and red peppers. The sauce was thin, and it was slightly spicy. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I'd love a recipe for it, but I know I'll forget to ask them when they get back.

So far, I have translations into French, Dutch, Swahili, and Ancient Greek. Any others? (If it's in a non-Latin alphabet, please try to transliterate.)

If so, do you think he's really annoying?

I called their customer service, the lady was absolutely no help. She looked up my social security number and said nothing came up.... that was about it. I explained the situation to her and she just repeated that nothing came up, and I should write to citibank???? uhmmm okay.

A sort of guardian/boss over you, Danny and your other close friends, tells you to go and clear your head for a month or so and he'll explain it all to Danny. When you come back, you find out that not only has the guardian/boss not told Danny anything, but has set him up with one of your old ex-friends, Amy, who you know messes guys around.
That same night, you bump into one of Danny's friends who is nice to you and is there for you for a while called MAtt. You and Matt get together a few months later and Danny has no problem with this. But after a few months, you and Danny find yourselves kissing and you both explain things and both realise that it was the guardians/boss's fault you both are no longer together.
He dumps Amy but what do you do? Matt is funny and amazing...but he's not...Danny. But do you really want to throw away what you have with Matt?
However, you have never loved someone like your Danny
(TO BE VERY CLEAR: THIS ISN'T A REAL SITUATION THAT'S HAPPENING TO ME. PLEASE DON'T YELL AT ME TELLING ME I'M STUPID OR SOMETHING. IT'S. NOT. ME)
Similarly...guys. If you were Danny, would have have dumped Amy?

I've looked up state parks around the Montauk Area, and from what I gather from the information provided on-line (which is not that much), and it says you need an RV or trailer hitch.

My answers, just for fun:
Right now I have Sprint, and for about $65 a month I get the internet (or at least a good number of sites that are compatible), texting, and picture mail (when it works, my phone is busted at the moment). I've never had any complaints about Sprint's service and I get reception in lots of places where no one else does.
You and your bf (or whatever you're going to date) have been going out for almost 6 months.
A year before you started dating he asked you out, but then because you were kind of a brat said he made a mistake and went out with another girl for almost a year. You have been very jealous of this girl because frankly, she won and you lost. A year passes and after a remarkable series of events you are finally going with the boy. Lots of love and happiness and all that jazz. Because most people in your family are alcoholics, drinking makes you uncomfortable, and so your bf agrees to try not to, or at least keep it to a minumum.
Then last night, he goes out with the ex and 2 of her friends because they would all hang out occasionally.
a) got drunk with them
b) played truth or dare and kissed a boy on the lips (which honestly doesn't bother me too much)
c) was dared to kiss his ex
He tells everyone in the group that he's never going to talk to any of them again, kisses the ex (closed mouth, on the lips) and leaves.
Next day he calls you, explains, sobs, promises anything you ask, apologises too many times to count, says he's undeserving of any kindness and would gladly do anything you request, and admitted that he is a complete idiot rotten gaping cunt douche bag.
Yes, he thought of how you felt about drinking. Yes, he thought of you before he kissed her, and decided he had kissed her before, it meant nothing, and he was playing the game after all.
Do you forgive him?
What did you think of it (your employers, coworkers, customers, etc)?
I live in Austin, and this is a pretty open-minded town, but do you think my piercings (lip and eyebrow) would be a problem with a coorperate place such as Barnes and Noble? I'm thinking I should probably take them out for the interview (provided I get it!)

I was going through some post-secret archives and found a few phrases I don't know:
"esse quam videri"
and "Kaufsuchtig" with an umlaut over the second u.

What do they mean?!
1. In a mag I looked at recently, they showed celeb pictures 2 days apart looking 15 pounds thinner, because of jeans. What jeans should I get? I mean like...high waisted or whatever..? That sounds stupid but my jeans suck, I have one pair, and I wanna invest in a good pair. (I'm poor)

what's something that you've vowed to NEVER do?
Car 1 is stopped at a red light, waiting to make a right hand turn. Car 1 sees slow moving semi truck in right hand lane, knows she can beat it, so starts to make her turn.
Car 2 is behind semi. Car 2 decides semi is moving too slow and goes to pass. Car 2 comes around semi and starts to merge into the right hand lane right as Car 1 is making her turn. Car 2 whacks Car 1.
ETA=I googled it and it is illegal to pass within 100 feet of an intersection in our state...so...should that make it car 2's fault?
I served on a jury a few weeks ago. My employer paid me for both days (I am a union member and we are alloted 20 paid jury duty days each year.)
I also received a check today in the mail for about $40 from the court as payment for my services.
If my employer paid me for jury duty, is the payment from the court also considered to be mine... or is this check supposed to go to my employer?
I'm in California if it makes a difference.

I'm in Vegas right now and I want to drive to the Grand Canyon. The only directions I can find online take me on a five hour drive to the southeastern portion of it. I want to do this trip in one day and five hours is too long. It is obviously possible to get to the western or the southwestern edge in much less time, however I've found through googling that going to this area will take me though Indian reservations that charge something like $50 a person just to drive on the roads that take you to the Grand Canyon, plus most of these roads are unpaved.
So, does anyone have any idea if there is a part of the Grand Canyon's south rim that I could visit that will let me avoid these Indian reservations but not go too far west? And how do I get there?

Mr. Boss happened to look over when I was typing something and freaked out b/c I only allowed a single space between a punctuation mark and the first letter of a new sentence.

I have this bump on my head. It hurts. It hurts a lot. I noticed it on Saturday when I leaned my head back on my car headrest. It was small back then and didn't hurt all the time, but since then it hasn't stopped hurting. I forced my mother too look at Sunday evening and she, liking to pop shit, went into crazy zit-popping mode and popped it. So much puss came out and it was the gross, infected green kind of puss. Anyway, ever since then it's been getting more and more swollen with fluids. When I touch the bump, it's all squishy. Right now it's about the size of a nickle and it's stinging like mad.
What the fuck is this thing?
Anyone know what I could do to make it not tacky? Or should I go find that woman and tell her she needs to paint my room over?

what about in online conversation?
My parents usually made sure I didn't miss any days if we were going on vacation. Sometimes I would miss one, and I think twice in high school I missed 2. The kids I went to school with would sometimes miss like 10 days in a row because they were on vacation. I thought it was ridiculous.
EDIT: Does the fact we've never had intercourse, but everything else imaginable, make any of you think I actually may *not* be pregnant? If I was pregnant I would have to be the next Virgin Mary or something, because like I said, we've not had sex.
Is it possible to be pregnant and have a normal period?
I ask because my period was 10 days late last month, but was otherwise completely normal. My boobs hurt before hand, and stopped hurting completely once it came-- just like normal. I had intense cramps with the normal color blood just like normal, nothing near spotting or lightly colored blood.
Now, I have almost every symptom of pregnancy, including nausea, head aches, peeing frequently, constantly being hungry, horrible gas, and the smell of certain food absolutely makes me want to hurl. I haven't done anything sexual since last month's pregnancy scare so I couldn't have gotten pregnant since then.
I looked up "period while pregnant" on Google and I am now absolutely horrified. Not a single website that came up on the first page said it was impossible!
Do I have room to worry?
Today I got a message on my cell phone from a random person with a phone number in Jamaica where my brother is doing an internship. I convinced myself that one of two things had happened:
a) My brother had had his cellphone stolen
b) My brother had been kidnapped (or killed) and the person was calling me, the first number in my brother's cellphone directory, to demand a ransom.
Neither were true. I still don't know who called me but I spoke to my brother about an hour after receiving the voicemail and he was napping at his house.
When things are 'so meta it hurts', what kind of hurt is that exactly? Is it good hurt like hair pulling during sex? Or bad hurt like a papercut between your toes? PLEASE TELL ME TQC, I NEED TO KNOW. :(

Anyone who's learned as an adult? How long did it take you?
What tips might someone have for an adult hoping to learn how to ride? I'm still living at home (the post-grad slump), and Dad's decided to try teaching me in the backyard, but I'm having an awful time figuring out this balance thing.
Finally, is there an easy, non-measuring way to figure out how tall your bike should be from ground to seat? I thought I heard somewhere that you should be able to straddle the bike with your feet just touching the ground, in which case I'm trying to learn on one just a smidge too tall, but Dad insists it's fine- is cycling supposed to be this uncomfortable? :P
