personality, schmersonality

1. Do you know of anyone who has an exceptionally strong personality; meaning, do you know anybody who encapsulates a personality trait to the extreme (i.e. someone who is incredibly cynical all the time)? If you had to guess (or if you know), why are they like that?

2. Which personality trait of yours do you feel is the strongest or most prominent? Try to pick only one.

3. Do you find Larry David attractive/appealing? What do you think your answer might reveal about you?

4. Think of someone (anyone - friend, family member, SO, enemy, etc.) you know that's relatively different from you. Based entirely on your own interpretations, which one of you would fit under the "DARK" category and which one of you would fit under the "LIGHT" category? If you want, explain your own interpretations.

5. Which kind of people just don't work with the type of person you are? Do you think that these discrepancies are completely natural or do you have a completely conscious choice in who you do and don't associate with?

Is anyone here going to Eastern Michigan University this year?
Also, if you are, what building are you in? So far I only know of three people staying in my building--Best Hall.

And...do I need a cup of water from another fishtank to start off the cycke in the tank for my will-be-betta, or can I just set it up a few days in advance and then go out and get him? It is not filtered--I plan on cleaning the tank once a week. Also, I will be using gravel, though I know it is not a requirement for these guys, if that changes things.

computers are such a headache for me.

 

My livejournal is "friends only" .... I'm hoping, it is anyways because I always click "friends only" in the drop down menu under "show this entry to"...

(is this much right? I want my lj to only be seen by my friends)

 

AND

I really want to delete certain people from my friends list so that they can no longer see my entries. How do I do this? Can I get it in a Step 1, Step 2 explaination please?

 

thank you! :)

So, I told my mom I was biking over to a friend's house who lives nearby(I'm 22, I live in another city, I feel that this is not a huge deal) and she freaks out because it's OMG MIDNIGHT. Apparently, perverts and rapists and kidnappers only come out at night, so I should do my biking during the day in the 118 (million) degree heat. I think this is absurd, but she says that I'm being stupid, ALL WOMENZ know not to go outside at night, I'm the only one who does.

So hay womminz (not guys because you never evar evarrrr get raped, lolz) do you go outside after dark? After midnight? AM I GON' GET RAPED?

Wow, weird.

I've heard of people dyeing their poodles with kool-aid, and I want to try this with my cat. Trouble is, I Googled and couldn't find anything specifically for cats, and the stuff pertaining to poodles was inconsistent.

Who here knows a fantastic way to dye a cat with kool-aid? I don't suppose submerging one in a tub of the stuff is a realistic option, hah.

weird question

Hey guys. This is a little strange, I realize, but I have a secret that no one around here knows, and that is that I like to smell girls' feet. With socks on preferably. We're not talking about so much a sexual thing here, as, even if I had a good female friend who'd just, every so often, put her feet in my lap and say, you can smell them if you want. Everyone I know hates feet so much, and/or hates having their feet touched, so I keep quiet about it. But I also read that it is the most common "fetish". So, I don't need to ask how weird it is because I realize it's fairly odd, but, for girls, how accepting would you be of this if a good male friend or partner were to bring it up with you? I'm interested to know how people feel about this. Thanks.
P.S. This was born, I think, when I was younger and some neighbour girls would be playing at the house and I'd be smelling their feet just messing around as kids do.

My answers:

1. Yes.

For those of you that have student loans or know how they work:

1. Does your student loan cover everything? like can you use part of it to pay your car payments aside from tuition and books?

2. Do they send all of the money directly to you or to your school?

3. Are you able to not work while you're in school because of the loans?



I can't seem to find any websites with detailed information on this without having to apply.

Europe!

Background:
I'm thinking of going to Europe in the next 2-10 months. Right now, my top visiting choice would be 1-2 weeks in late Oct/early Nov. I'm a 29 year old single female currently living in NYC.

Collapse )

Questions:
Where would you recommend I go, considering the time of year, my preferences, budget, and what little you know about me?

Has anyone done Couchsurfing.com or Servas to stay with people? Would you recommend it? Since I'll be alone, the prospect of meeting people along the way is very appealing, and besides, saving money is a huge plus.

Any tales of traveling around Europe you want to share with me? Most interested in people who visited in their late 20s and older, but all tales welcome.

I enjoy "collecting" redundant song lyrics, the kind that you listen to and then think "My god, they couldn't come up with anything better than THAT?". My favorites are:

* "The heat was hot" from America's "Horse With No Name" and

* "Lonely is the night when you find yourself alone." from Billy Squier's "Lonely is the Night".

Do you have any redundant song lyrics to add to my collection?

Just... why??????

OK, so here's the scenario:

Collapse )

So, the questions:
1. Do guys have some rule about how long to wait after a date before contacting someone?  If so, why?
2. Did the girl shoot herself in the foot by sending that last e-mail?
3. Should she just calm down and wait- she's over-reacting and everything is fine......?

I know, I sound like a spaz.  But I'm not used to dating, and this whole situation is pissing me off.  I'm attractive, successful and normal (despite how  this makes me sound), so I don't know why he's doing this.   I hate dating.

TO CLARIFY:  The e-mail I sent today wasn't a "where is our relationship going?" thing- it was a "you called me every day, replied to my messages almost immediately, and were otherwise very attentive and interested, so why have you changed?"  I DID say "I am curious to see where this could go" but nothing more ... long term or relationshippy than that.  I just want to know what changed in his mind between dropping me off on Saturday night and getting my e-mail on Monday.  I should probably also mention that he works with my cousin's ex-husband, and is friends with several people I know, so I have a small fear that someone talked some bullshit about me to him.  I just don't understand how he could change his mind when nothing changed.

EDITED AGAIN:  Since people are still not getting what I said in the e-mail, here it is: 

OK, so I'm going to assume you were really busy yesterday, and that's why you enver got back to me.  But like I told you, I have this history of people suddenly deciding that... well, I have no idea what they're thinking because they all of the sudden decide to blow me off completely.  And while I try not to be a typical crazy chick, I get worried when someone who I talked to on a nearly daily basis suddenly decides to cut me off. 
 
And one thing you'll find out about me is that because I don't like fighting, I tend to address my worries before they get to a serious freak out level.  I also don't get hints, so if you want me to go away, you'll have to come out & tell me that.  So I'll just ask you flat out:  what's up with you not getting a hold of me at all in the last 2 days?  In the past week, if you haven't messaged me on Facebook, you sent me e-mails or called me. 
 
And then we went out, and everything was good.  You asked me if I wanted to see you again, more than once.  I said yes.  So I was thinking that meant that you wanted to see me again.  But I don't know if you're mad that I didn't put out, or if I'm just too much woman for you, or if I have too many pets...... I just have a bad feeling.  So I'll just finish like this:
 
I hate feeling weak, and I hate feeling dependent. So I hate having to do this.  But I like you- you're funny, and we have SO much in common, and I'm really curious to see where this could go.   So if, for whatever reason, you've decided that you don't want to see me again, please let me know, so I can stop wondering what I did wrong when everything seemed to be going so well.
 
And if this is all in my head, just laugh at me, and don't hold my paranoia against me, k?  Once i know where I stand, the insanity drops dramatically.

All of the self-depreciating humour is related to things we discussed previously.  I'm NOT asking him to pick out a china pattern, just to tell me if he's decided he's not interested anymore.

A friend of mine made this site http://www.iffas.tk (yes, it redirects since it's a .tk. But she's in beta mode, she'll go to a .com sometime apparently). It's a fanfiction competition site basically. If you write/read fanfiction, would you ever use it? Why/Why not? Stuff she could improve?


Have you ever read the books "Pirates in an Adventure with Scientists", and the other books in that series? (I think there's only three of them so far) What did you think? I just finished Pirates in an Adventure with Communists and I couldn't stop laughing.

How would you get more people to join/post in a Lano and Woodley fan forum?

If you ever wore braces, did you continue wearing your retainers forever? If not, have your teeth gone to shit since you stopped...and how long had you worn your retainers for?

I don't consider myself quick witted, therefore I always feel i'm having a slow day unless I drink caffiene or am drunk.
I've been wearing my retainers for two years now, does it matter how long you've worn them before you stop? I'm supposed to wear them every night for the rest of my life :|

I went to a group interview today for some company that sells air filters. Big ones used in like nursing homes and hospitals and whatnot.

They claimed we would make $20/hr for the job if they hired us. You'd do two hour long presentations for appointments made ahead of time (so you're supposedly not harassing people to buy a product - they said not to be pushy or aggressive with sales) at least 25 times every two weeks. Which rounds out to about $1000 minimum every two weeks. Oh, and they'll give us an extra $500 at the end of each month to cover all travel expenses (even though the maximum they said we'd have to drive to our presentations was 45 minutes)!

So what's the catch?

We don't have to pay them any money for training or equipment and paychecks aren't based off commision. If you sell all 25, you get paid $1000, if you sell 0, you get paid $1000. The only thing we have to do is sign a form taking responsibility for the air filter they give us to take to clients.

I was part of the group invited back and while I figure there's no way this is not a scam, I'm going to try and be optomistic because if it was a real job, then well, I want it. I'd like to try to research the company more, but I had to leave the group interview session quickly to get to another appointment. They were called GHI or HRI (or some combination of that) and based out of Ohio for the past 79 years. Have you ever heard of a company scam like them?

What is the best 'get up and fucking dance, bitches' song?

In three days, i've eaten 20 krispy kreme doughnuts and a box of cakes from a bakery, three lindt chocolate bars, a bag of jaffas and a litre of coke. How fucking awesome is that?

Have you ever just walked out the door and gone walking? Where did you end up?

How sugar-high am I?

Work-at-home jobs

Does anyone here do any work-at-home stuff? What do you do? How much do you make from it?

Are there any legitimate data entry work-at-home jobs? I've been looking all over the internet for it.

Why I'm asking is because I'm about to quit a very crappy job and need to make some money while I'm looking for another job. Better yet, if I could make a steady income and work from home, I'd be very happy.

I have massive sores in my mouth (6, to be exact). They're really painful, especially the big one on the bottom side of my tongue

To top it off, my throat is really sore and raw. Like, it hurts badly to talk, and even more to eat. I haven't eaten anything in full since like 3 days ago when I had a spicy chicken sandwich...and that probably wasn't a good choice!

but it's really painful even when I'm not talking or anything! And my doctor's appointment isn't until tomorrow morning!

Do you have any solution to get rid of all the canker sores or to ease the pain?

Hope you can help
