Oh, pain!

What hurts at the moment? Would a kiss make it all better?

If someone you know hurts you often (emotionally, not physically), at what point do you cut them out of your life? Is the answer different if it is a member of your family?

Question to maybe set my mind at ease...

1. Do you think you'd feel....guilty for going to an interview, talking to the company a few more times on the phone and then turning down the job when they say they're ready to hire you, when they sound eager to have you working for them? I never felt completely sure of the job but I thought maybe I'd get to like the idea. I don't feel I'm ready for a 40-hour-a-week job at 19, with only 10 months work experience. Though I still may go grovelling back to them in a few days, if another job offer doesn't come.
Am I just being dumb kid feeling bad? It seems it, to me.

And something a little more random...

How often do you go braless?

I wear bras like 30% of the time, and the other times I layer so that it's not obvious or otherwise tacky, but I don't like wearing bras. They're dumb and pointless unless I'm trying to do something with my breasts like make them squish together.

Did you like going to sleep-over parties as a child/pre-teen?
I hated going to sleep-overs, with the exception of my best friend's house, I was always incredibly uncomfortable with sleep-overs away from my house because I was scared I'd get sick!

Did you par take in quintessential pranks such as hand in warm water? Or freezing of the training bra?

Answered: Tom it is. Thanks!

What makes the better ringtone?

"Yeah I'm free, free fallin'" by Tom Petty [opening of the chorus] or "Hold me closer tiny dancer, count the headlights on the highway" by Elton John [heading into the bridge i think]?

i love them both and can't decide :(

bolded [tl;dr].

So my boyfriend--of not even two months--just told me he thinks we're ready to have sex.
I told him that I know for a fact we aren't ready, and that we'd definitely regret it.
We're fifteen and we're both virgins.
He got mad at me and said, "Well before I asked you out you said you wouldn't have a problem with having sex. Plus I love you and blah blah blah."
Which is true; I did say I wouldn't have a problem with having sex. However I've learned a lot since then and I've come to the conclusion that even if I were ready to have sex, he isn't. He's simply not mature enough and he doesn't seem to understand that while he may think he's ready, he isn't.

So my question is: Has this, or something similar, happened to you, or someone you know? How do I get myself out of this mess? Was it right for him to get mad? Or just give me your opinions, I guess.

edit 1: Sorry for the useless bolding; I figured you wouldn't want to read the whole thing. :/

edit 2: After talking, and him telling me to go fuck myself and calling me a bitch and telling me to fuck off several times, we've concluded that we weren't meant to be and have come to a mutual agreement that friendship is the best route. Thanks for your advice everyone, and sorry for more useless bolding / big letters. [:

unnecessary cuteness


7:30 PM 8/23/07 · While shopping for dress shoes for Sis' upcoming wedding, the conversation not surprisingly went on about shoes. Dad, who had taken me all the way around Novato looking for sales, was surprised to learn that other than a pair of slippers and a couple of old dress shoes I really just have the one pair I wear most of the time. It had been my understanding, both from Dad various life experiences, that it's the female of the species that collect shoes just for the love of having them while the male tends to grab only what is necessary or practical.

Which is what sparked the question...

What's your gender and how many pairs of shoes do you own?

Possibly long winded backstory, I'm still a little upset.

My cockatiel died very suddenly last night. We were chattering to each other, she loved talking to people and was a sweetheart, which is why we named her SWeetie. But while I was chattering with her, she suddenly started jerking and fell to the bottom of the cage. I freaked out and yelled for my mother and Sweetie just lay there jerking for a efw seconds before she died. She had been in good health and relatively young, only about 8 or 9 years old, we just can't figure out what happened. My mother suggested that it could have been a heart attack, because Sweetie was always a bit high strung, but she was very relaxed and happy while we were chattering. My brother was a few feet away, playing video games, and barely looked up the whole time except to tell his friend to ignore me and my mother hysterical crying over the bird. His friend kept asking what he could do to help and got tissues for us. We put her in a shoebox with her mirror and bell (her favorite toys) and buried her this morning. My brother says we overreacted and that we should have kept the toys for another bird, but I would have felt horrible trying to give Sweetie's favorite things to another pet, I don't even want to get another bird now.

Did my mother and I overreact? Was it really stupid to bury Sweetie with her toys? Was my brother just being a dick about it? What even happened to Sweetie? He's already talking about getting another bird to 'replace' her, how do i get it through his skull that you can't replace a pet like that and that nobody else even wants to get a bird right now?

My fiance and I went out to dinner last night. Local restaurant, certainly wasn't upscale. When our waitress came to the table she took our drink orders, when we ordered a coke and an unsweet tea she said "well that's easy." Came back and deliveried our drinks and we were ready to order - we both wanted chicken fingers cause they are just yummy. She again said "that's easy.", picked up the menus slammed them on the table to make them even up with each other and walked away. Someone from the kitchen brought our plates out, she appeared a few minutes later and asked if we needed anything extra. We said we would like an extra cup of honey mustard. Took her 10 minutes to bring that to us. We eat and every time we put a bite in our mouths she asked how we were doing.

After about the fourth time of her coming over and asking how we were doing my fiance turned the table and asked how SHE was doing. She said she was "tired". 

It's time to get the check. We asked for a to go box and the check. She brought the box and forgot the check. Brings the check, sets it down on the table after another five minutes of waiting. My card was already in my hand and ready to give it to her but she walked away too quickly. Sit there for another 5 minutes waiting for her to come back. I see her come out of the direction of the kitchen, she stopped at the table diagonal to us, then the one in front of us and started to move down to the table beside that one....I called her name and she looked at me like WTF? So she comes to the table and I hand her the card. She rings it up and brings me the receipt...I didn't tip her at all.

Was I wrong for not tipping her? She didn't bring our food out. She wasn't moving at top speed and seemed to think that since she said she was tired everything would be ok. I always tip at least 30% on a check and I felt she needed to be taught a lesson. What do you think?

I do kinda feel bad about it now but I was just so pissed at having to wait 15 minutes for her to ring us out.

For me it's plain Bic blue pens. Anything else and I start complaining about the color of the ink, the way it feels in my hands, the size of the point, etcetera.

2. Do you prefer legal or spiral notebooks?

I usually go for spiral, but this semester I thought I'd be adventurous and go for legal pads. The fact that the paper is rainbow colored had nothing to do with my decision, I assure you.

3. Do you carry around a mini stapler with you?

I do, even though I rarely use it. This is mostly because the one time I asked someone to borrow theirs they said no. Mean people suck.

I pack a knife everywhere I go, just a little 5 inch folding blade in a nice leather holder. I sit down at the beach and slice limes for my gin and club sodas with it. If I am with a male companion, I like to slowwwly lick that sharp knife clean while staring at him intently and then I judge the guy's reaction. Denim tent = a-okay with me. Cringe in horror with balls shriveled up inside body cavity = even better. Either way, that knife is a gauge on whether they have anything to do with me ever again or not. SO far, nobody has stopped talking to me.

So, what do you think? Deranged woman licking her sharp knife clean while staring intently - hot or not?

After talking to a high school kid that works with me, it turns out that The Dave Matthews Band has become the new "cool" thing to like, it's what the potheads and the hippies listen to, like Phish was for my generation, like The Grateful Dead, and Pink Floyd. I'm not talking about kids who are generally interested, I'm talking about the "trendy" kids who like them because everyone else does.

My reaction: lolwut?

If you're an oldschool fan of DMB, how do you feel about this?

What was the "cool" band to listen to when you were in high school?

I'm kind of annoyed. I grew up with DMB and now all these little kids go to his concerts 'coz it's cool. If they're genuine fans, alrighty, but not just cuz they wanna dope up and feel trendy.

It alternated between Phish and Bob Marley.

In brief: has anyone EVER seen or used the abbreviation LMIRL?

Longer version: For anyone who hasn't, it's short for Let's Meet In Real Life. I've seen it twice now--both times offline. The most appropriate response I could formulate was OMGWTFBBQ... because who DOES that? I've met 'Net friends IRL myself, and it has NEVER been that casual unless they're the friend of a friend I already know. Even then, we've never used that or anything like it.

Of course, when I saw that headline today, it also mentioned kids texting it to each other. Yes, by cell phone. If you already have someone's number and you're going to suggest a meeting, I'd think you'd do it during an actual call...

Then again, this is probably the same type of people who thought "yeah, I'd hit that" was a good ad campaign slogan for both a McDonald's hamburger and the PSP. >_>

caughtcha mom!

i'm 24. i don't smoke pot - i dont care if others do around me, but im perfectly satisfied with my marlboros and a six pack of sam adams.

my mom has been staying with me and my boyfriend for the past month, and my dad has been here for the last two week. they came to help us get some stuff done (they live in texas, were in ohio). I grew up your typical boring suburban childhood, and my mom was a stay at home mom. my mom wouldnt even let me have bags that were made of HEMP when i was a kid.

so, enough of the backstory. i caught my mom smoking pot in our living room (my boyfriend and i live together). i didnt actually see her smoking it, but i smelled it, she thought we were all gone, etc etc... basically, i know she was smoking pot. when she and my dad left to go do something today, i checked in one of her bags (i felt so very dirty doing this) and i found the pot in her bag, so, evidence confirmed.

Anyway, I don't care that she smokes pot - i couldn't care less actually. I just don't want her to do it in our house. We prefer ithat people smoke in the garage, because my boyfriend's family just shows up all the time and walks right into the house. My mom is the uber defensive type, who always thinks people are accusing or attacking her of stuff, and she denies everything. i would like to avoid a huge blow up session, i just dont want her to smoke in the living room.

Dear TQC - how would you get the message across to your mother that A) you dont care that she smokes and B) to please smoke in the garage - my house, my rules, etc. seriously. i don't want my boyfriend's uberstraight laced grandma to show up and see my mom smoking pot. :::headdesk:::

nervous stomach

 This might sound strange, but I get these really bad nervous stomachs at random times and have absolutely no clue how to get rid of them. 
I started getting them when I was in junior high, but basically what happens is I get nervous about something and get this really bad boiling feeling in my stomach/ intestines and it makes me feel like I need to lay down and die. Once the sick feeling hits I go into this crazy panic mode where all I want to do is be in the comforts of my own home where I feel safe from embarresment.

I've seen a doctor about it and we ran different tests to see what it could be from. They did an upper GI and didn't find any ulcers or anything, and then I started taking lactaid because we thought maybe I was lactose intolerant. None of these things helped so I'm lead to the conclusion that its all in my head and I make myself nervous. 

I eventually thought I had grown out of it because I only got occaisional "boily stomachs" when I ate something that was too greasy or I was under some kind of pressure but I recently started getting them back again in odd situations like the middle of class or when I'm getting ready to go somewhere. 

Has anybody here ever had this problem? What did you do to calm yourself down before the sick feeling hit you???

Since I'd leaned forward and tucked my head down, there was sort of an invisible extra chin against the black of my t-shirt. And that was a horribly worded and confusing sentence. Anyway.

So I held up my hand against the black of my t-shirt and it was there too. It's sort of like when you don't focus on something in front of your face and on a point further away so it looks like there's two of the things in front of your face, just not as extreme. So like really slight double vision, but only against a dark background.

So could you please go try this in your nearest mirror and tell me if it happens to you? If so, is this some science thing to do with mirrors I never learned about in high school? And if it doesn't work for you, then which one is dying, my eyes or my brain?

Where do I want to go out to eat tonight?

The restrictions are it must have a location in Jacksonville, FL and cannot be Mexican/Indian/Japanese.

EDIT: and also not poop sandwiches, because I had those for lunch.

So people always say when you find the person you're going to marry, you usually just know at a point that this is the man/woman for you.

Those of you who are married, was this true for you?

two very unrelated questsions...

1. The Dream Concert on September 18th in Washington D.C.: Is there any chance of that being on t.v.? I really want to see it, but going to D.C. and getting tickets is impossible. = (
Edit:I lied. Its in N.Y.C., but i still couldn't go.

2. My friend is going through a really rough time. I can't do anything to help the situation that is causing the drama, but I still want to help. What is something I can do for said friend to cheer them up/take their mind off of things/let them know I'm here if needed.

2a. What is the nicest thing a friend has done for you when you were going through a rough time?
guns; shoot your eyes out

1)Do you think there are enough people in China that they could make a bridge of bodies all the way across the Pacific Ocean and still have 2 or 3 people to every one American so that they could beat us all up and take over the country?
2)What's the worst childhood accident you've ever had? Not mine, but at my cousin Matt's birthday party one year one of his friends shot his other friend in the eye with Matt's BB gun. The kid was okay, but my aunt and uncle were afraid there might be a lawsuit or something.

Hi, I have a silly question...

it's a silly question but I can't get it out of my mind.

The other night, while drunk, I was making up rhymes to go with Rihanna's "Umbrella" song.
The two I remember were "you can have all of my Salmonella-ella-ella-ei-ei" and something to do with Cinderella.

But there was ONE certain word that I just CAN'T remember.... but it was soooooo funny and perfect and maybe my drunkenness had to do with how funny I found it, but I'd just really like to remember what that word was.

So... friendly neighbourhood LJ helpers... do you have any suggestions for what the word that rhymes with Umbrella could have been?

thanks so much!

Do you eat the sides/ crust of cheese? My husband finds it odd that I don't eat the crust except for Brie sometimes. Just wondering if I'm the only "odd" one.

Hi, new person here.
I have a question!
Does anyone else ever experience smoking hiccups?
Sometimes when I'm smoking a cigarette every time I take a drag it makes me hiccup. And only when I am actually inhaling. For as long as I don't have a puff I stop, and even if it's a few minutes later, when I have one I will hiccup.
It's weird, no-one else seems to get it.
So do any of you guys ever experience such a phenomenon?

for whatever reason, eating sushi just makes me feel awesome. physically, emotionally, mentally. i went into the sushi restaurant today in a heinous rage, and by the time i finished, i was so mellow that i almost looked high. when i used to have bad stomach problems, whenever i ate sushi, i would feel ten times better.

any idea why sushi makes me feel so great?

This is driving me crazy... where was the majority of the outdoor stuff in the movie "Little Miss Sunshine" shot? I live in Albuquerque and I could swear that in the one scene where Dwayne is outside the van... it looks EXACTLY like the mountain I live on in the background.

I was "seeing" (we were just friends, truthfully) one of my best friend's cousins on and off over the past few months, but I really distanced myself over the past month because he was a heroin/ecstasy addict and I didn't want to be involved with that. I also wasn't happy with how careless he was with his programs and rehabilitation. It pissed him off a lot. My friend just IMed me and told me he drowned today. I'm just in shock. I'm not even sure what to think. I almost feel like I could have done something.

My parents are out of town for the next two weeks, and knowing how things go, I'll probably be the one cooking for my sister and I after I get home from work. So... any ideas for easy and delicious things to make for two people? Do you have any family favorite recipes that you'd care to share?

I know it's only August but I've been thinking about Christmas. I'm already, hopefully getting 2 Man Utd tops and a McLaren Mercedes/Alonso t-shirt. My dad came home last week sometime and asked if we wanted a Nintendo Wii. I was going to ask for a Nintendo DS though.

Pros and cons for both machines? Which do you have/which do you recommend?

Also: why isn't GTA IV COMING OUT ON PS2?! :(

If you have ever worked in a restaurant, have you ever seen anyone spit in the food or do other gross things to food?

If you've worked in a hospital, what's the nastiest thing you've ever seen there?

If you've ever worked ANYWHERE, what's the grossest thing you've seen at your job?

(feel free to tell those "my sister's uncle's brother's grandma's" stories too!)


mine would be just some things in the fridge (milk & chinese food left in there for months, etc). but at my old job I was a gas station clerk so I had to clean the bathrooms. yay! fun! except not. I've seen semen on the bathroom floor and shitty underwear in the trashcan, as well as on the walls & floor.

 Do you use your first name or your middle name at work?
 What is your middle name?
 Do people call you something else outside of work?
 Is your paycheck issued by your first or middle name?
 Do you wish you could change your name to something else? If so, to what?

Considering it.
People typically don't call me by my name and my fiance uses terms of endearment
First (but curious if there would be any changes required with the bank if it was issued in my middle name)
Sometimes. I used to go by Bree in high school. I was bent on changing my name to Brianna.
