I've had my journal for years, but all the friends I used to have, have quit. Now only a few people actually ever read it. All of my real life friends use Facebook and Myspace. I love my journal. Should I finally cave in and join another site even though I don't want to or is there some more creative solution I don't know about?

Gay stuff [Sep. 21st, 2007|12:41 am]
The Question Club

Dearest TQC,

I'm trying to figure out what the heck I'm going through, and there don't seem to be any books out there on acclimating to the gay lifestyle and what emotions/feeling/confusion to expect as normal phases in the process, as opposed to focusing on coming out of the closet (which isn't the problem for me). And trust me, I've LOOKED for such books. Even the lady who works in the Oscar Wilde Bookstore in Manhattan didn't know what I was talking about.

So TQC gurus, please give me some guidance if you can:

Is there a "normal age" for coming out of the closet?

Are there a lot of lesbians who started out dating only men, and only realized they were gay later on in life (20s, 30s, later)?

Do these women always go through a period of confused bisexuality, or do some just go straight from liking men only to liking women only (and stay that way)?

Are there any members here who've gone through this and can give me some advice?

Thank you so much,
A Confused Twenty-Something

I am going to be really honest, I am deathly afraid of zombies. I cry, hyperventilate and puke my guts out whenever I see them on TV or hear them moaning. I'm desperate to get over my fear. There's a zombie walk going to be happening in my city soon. Would it be a terrible idea to go downtown and watch them to try and get over it? Do you think it would make my fear worse? I'm thinking 'seeing them' in 'the flesh' might help me out, but I'm not so sure.

so, say you do in-home childcare and one of your families decided to find another provider for reasons that do not matter. you had them sign an agreement at the beginning of the relationship stating that 2 weeks' notice was required if the hours/days of care changed (which includes cancellations/terminations/etc) or they'd owe 2 weeks' full pay. they don't want to pay for time they don't use, even though they signed the contract. total money owed: $375.

should i take them to small claims court for it?

today is one of my co-worker's birthday. there are only 4 girls here in the office (including me) so they usually make a big deal out of birthdays. (i've gotten flowers, balloons, cards, etc) now take into account that i am HORRIBLE when it comes to remembering birthdays.

so Katherine comes in here w/ flowers and a card and me and Cindy are like ":o oh shit!" so, what can i do to let her know that i didn't quite forget her birthday? :p i planned on sending her an e-card but i wanted to send it later on in the day but the website where i was at would send it immediately and i don't want her to know that i JUST sent it.

i feel horrible for forgetting her birthday.. :( i do plan on buying her lunch, is that enough?

are you good with birthdays or quite forgetful like myself? what was the last important thing you forgot about?

I'm getting a haircut soon, but I want to do something very different. I toyed with the idea of going short, but I'm not sure.

Do you think a pin up hairstyle would look good on me? (like this kinda)

I mean, the length is no problem, but I'm concerned that the layers/bettie style bangs wouldn't flatter me. Opinions please? If you don't like that style, do you think any other rockabilly/retro-style hair would look good on me?

Here's some pics of me for reference. In addition to getting a cut, I'm also dying it red (closer to crayon red than redhead red, but not TOO bright)

Come this wayCollapse )

Do you know of any more appropriate communities I can ask this in?

4. What do you do to make those dates special?

5. Do you tend to go to the same place (a favorite restaurant, a special spot) or do you change it up and try something new?

6. What is your favorite thing to do with your S/O?

7. What do you think is the best place to go on a date?

In it, there was a pigeon in our house (not actually where we live now). After managing to get both doors in one of the rooms closed (and opening a window), I managed to grab it with one of those grabber tools, and put it outside the window.

Rather than flying away, however, it put it's head under the window, and pulled it down, crushing its head. (It had little paws or something, I don't really remember.)

Any thoughts on what that might mean?

Also, are there any television shows you watch without the sound on?

Do you ever feel like absolutely everything in your life is going wrong? If so, how do you explain it to yourself? What kind of philosophy do you use?

Do you assume that shit just happens, no one can control it, it is what it is?

Do you assume that life balances out and for every bad thing that happens there is something good to go along with it?

Do you assume that it’s fate for things to go the way they do? Example: You get a speeding ticket because time/God/Buddha/whoever knew that if you did not spend the time to get pulled over, you would have gotten in an accident 5 miles up the road... and by getting pulled over, you avoided the mess?

I’m having a lot of trouble dealing with this lately, and I’m just wondering what kind of philosophy you all use to get over misfortunes.

(note: I am not saying my life is the worst EVAR EVAR OF ANYONE’S LIFE EVAR! Obviously that’s not true, I’m just looking for ways to deal with my own personal misfortunes.)

Here is a serious question, you guys. I am taking a six week leave of absence for my wedding/honeymoon which starts 10/22 and ends 12/3. Next year, starting in January, I'll have 5 days paid vacation. I have no other benefits to this job. I will be quitting either at the time of my leave or in January/February as soon as I use my vacation. I will substitute teach and do temping until I figure out what I want. Which should I do?

Quit at the time of your leave. You can use the extra two months to figure out what you want to do. The paid vacation isn't worth wasting two more months when you could make more money and get better benefits.
13(18.1%)
Quit next year and get that vacation, go to Napa like you and your fiance discussed, and revel in the idea of marching back in, getting your paycheck, and handing in your two week notice.

9(12.5%)

How did question #4 make you feel?

tl;dr and I don't care

For example, there's a women who works in my building who has very light hair, pale skin, and always wears light-colored clothes. She's the definition of washed out. I've never heard her speak and she walks around slowly and purposelessly with a blank expression on her face. I've nicknamed her Ghost Lady.

(Of course I'd never tell a coworker this, it's is just in my head.)

What can cause the price of a prescription to vary wildly?


I got a new birth control Rx in May. The first month cost $40 for the generic pills. Insurance didn't cover any of it. The next month the price was somewhere around $25. The month after that was $15. After that I moved, and the first month at my new pharmacy the pills were $15, and my receipt specifically stated that insurance had covered the rest. I just filled my Rx again and it is back to $40. My insurance hasn't changed and I can't think of anything else that would cause the price to jump around so much. Even the pharmacist didn't know.

I had a shower in March. I got married in May. I'm just now finishing the thank you cards. :P

Most of them will be ready to mail by Monday (my husband's doing the part I hate—licking the envelopes, and he's addressing half of the envelopes), but there's a problem with a few.

Since I sent out the wedding invitations, a couple of people have moved. Should I e-mail them and ask for their new addresses, or just e-mail them my thank yous? (Keep in mind their cards are already written, I just don't have their addresses. They are also good friends of mine.)

More important question:

I lost the church directory that had addresses for about ten people which I now do not have. They are all people who came to my shower but did not attend or send anything for the wedding.

Should I just toss out the cards I wrote since it's been waaay more than three months (time limit set by etiquette) since the shower? Or should I try to find their addresses the hard way since late is better than never?

ETA: These women are not good friends of mine, in fact, I met some of them for the first time that day. They are my parents peers (a few of them friends), some of whom support my parents (they're missionaries, and missionaries live off of donations). But they're very nice people.

how can i buy contact lenses without using the internet? i have no idea how people bought contacts before the internet.

my glasses broke and i'm on my last pair of contacts, which i've been wearing for like a month (they're two-week disposables). they're starting to become unbearable and i can't even take them out and give my eyes a rest for very long, because when i try to wear my glasses i get sick because they're so crooked. i ordered new contacts the other day, but they won't be here for like a week. this is driving me nuts and i don't think i can wait a week. i'd get new glasses but glasses are so expensive and i just got new lenses in january and they'll take forever anyway.

so where do i go? the eye doctor? the pharmacy? help ugh

edit: ok, thank you. i'll head there on monday. this post is now about whales. what kind of whales do you like?

Did you wear black yesterday?

If not, did you get shit for it?

                      (I didn't, because as well-informed as I am, I'd heard nothing about wearing black. I don't know if that was a nationwide thing or just something that was done at the school where I work. Regardless, I did get shit for it, but only from a few students, and only because they were playing with me. "Why aren't you wearing black today, Ms. _________? Don't you care? Are you a racist?")

 

Also: I tend to gesticulate a lot especially when I am talking to my classes, and today I was talking and I held up my thumb and forefinger about four inches apart to indicate a little slip of paper I was talking about. A kid made a comment about what I was doing, insinuating that it was some kind of street sign I don't know about. It had something to do with "stacking" something; possibly gang-related.

What sign was I inadvertently making?

My littl e brother's psycho ex-girlfriend from Hell keeps calling the house and demanding to speak to my parents. My mom finally answered the phone and the girl told her my brother said something rude to her and that she expects punishment. My mom said the girl was just as rude for spreading mean rumors about my brother when they broke up, and the girl went apeshit, so my mom hung up on her.

What did she really think was going to happen if she talked to my parents?
Does she think he wouldn't have told them what she said?

I asked my brother what he said and he told me that the girl constantly made jokes about suicide, yelled at people to kill themselves, and whenever things didn't go her way would say that she was going to kill herself and it was going to be everyone's fault. My brother's friend Matt killed himself a few months ago and nobody finds her jokes funny, so my brother finally told her to stop and asked if she even remembered Matt. The girl went apeshit again and said everyone should just get over Matt and move on and nobody pays any attention to her, then slapped my brother across the face and ran away crying.

What the hell makes her think joking like that is okay around people who lost a friend to suicide?
She tried telling my brother's friend that he had pushed her and told her to kill herself, but they fortunately didn't believe her. Why does she want my brother to look like a bad guy/make herself into a victim so badly?

She's already been told she can't come to the house because she's screamed "dyke" at me for having short hair, calls my boyfriend the n word, and threw rocks at the house in the middle of the night. If she tries coming to the house again, can I straight up call the cops on her? I want to just destroy her, but I know it'll only backfire. That's the only other solution to wanting her out that I can think of.

Which do you believe has more power over a child's personality and intelligence, their peer group or their parents?

My mother had a mental breakdown in the past few weeks and now is quite similar in mental capacity and personality as a teenager. Because of this I have invited her down for the weekend to spend time with her.

Do you think this was an unwise choice to make?

Oh! I have another one.

If you have a dream about someone (not a sex dream, just a dream), do you tell them if they are:
      ...an SO?
      ...a close friend?
      ...just a regular friend?
      ...a friendly acquaintance?
      ...a friendly coworker?

Do you worry that if you tell them, they will get freaked out and wonder why you are thinking about them so much that you would dream about them? 




Two of my coworkers who I am very friendly with were in my dream last night, and I don't think it is because I think about them too much: the other person in the dream was a friend from high school who I haven't seen in five years. I wanted to tell them (the coworkers) because it was a funny dream, but I was nervous that they'd think I was obsessed with them.

Cars [Sep. 21st, 2007|08:55 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[idoru]
I drive a 1994 Jeep Cherokee, for reference purposes.

If I am the only car at night on my side of an intersection, my headlights aren't enough to trigger the light sensor -- I either have to flash my brights (if there are no cars across from me) or wait for another car to show up on my side. This seems especially likely if there's ambient light from street lamps, gas stations, etc. It also happened with my previous '94 Cherokee, so I don't think it's dim bulbs or faulty headlight aim.
Has this ever happened to you? If so, what kind of car do you drive?

Are you loyal to a particular car brand?
Does it come from what you were raised around, or from your own driving experience?
What's your favorite car you've ever gotten to drive (not necessarily own)?

If your car was completely paid off but had crappy gas mileage -- oh, say, ~16mpg -- would you consider a moderate monthly car payment [reliable gently-used car] for better fuel economy a reasonable tradeoff?


Edit: I could SWEAR that the latenight traffic signals I've dealt with in Manassas & Winchester, VA are triggered by a light/something? sensor rather than weight, since I'm pretty good about coming to a stop right at the stop block. [And my car weighs about 3,000 pounds.]
AND the fact that flicking my brights on&off will almost invariably trigger a light change sequence, when rolling the car does nada.
I could also be retarded.

i've got a headache so i'm staying in tonight and i'm bored. time for an overly personal tl;dr mini-dramafest.


last year i dated a friend of mine for basically the entire school year and i broke up with him in march. we had a few weeks of trouble but we've been really good friends ever since. i go out of my way not to talk about or flirt with guys when i'm out with him (and our other mutual friends). two weeks ago i met a guy at his apartment (open party) but obviously i didn't go for it. i saw him again at a friend's apartment and we started talking. my ex saw us and got mildly upset (he was very drunk) and it was awkward. after three phone calls and one avoided serioustalk i told him i'd talk to him the next day if he still wanted to. the next day he apologized and it was over, but i've been seeing the new guy all week. obviously it's still very very new so it's not like i'm getting married, but i go to a pretty small school, i hang out with my ex a lot, and the two of them have already been at the same party once (i was almost there also). i feel like i should tell my ex or at least talk to him about it, because last weekend he recognized that i go out of my way not to hurt his feelings but it's not his business if i'm talking to guys and i have a right to move on without feeling bad.


long question short: what would you say to the ex? keep in mind he's still one of my closest friends and i know this will upset me. he's said he loved me while drunk within the last few weeks.


ps: i love parenthesis?

For people who eat eggs -If you crack open an egg and it has a blood spot, what do you do?  Cook it and eat it, throw it out, or scoop out the spot and then cook it?

I've been buying organic and free-range eggs, but I find that no matter which brand I buy, there are at least one to three in each dozen with blood spots, sometimes multiple, and it kind of grosses me out.


And for something completely different....
How many orgasms do you think is the max you've ever had in a single day? I'd count a multiple as just one instance so how about allowing for ten minutes in between.

For the guys -how many of you have had multiple orgasms?  It seems pretty damn uncommon for men.

1. I have a facebook. My school has blocked facebook emails. Anyway, my mom told me the other day that she got a facebook email, which was strange, because she has no account and there is no account registered to her email address. The email said that the name of my little brother's high school teacher had friend requested me, I guess because we have the same last name (it's kind of unusual)? What happened there? Has anything like that ever happened to you before? Why was the email sent to my mom, and why on earth would his teacher want to friend the older sister of a student he barely knows? It just seems really strange to me.


2. What do you think is the best cold medicine (preferrably one that doesn't taste completely disgusting - I hate NyQuill)?

3. What are your opinions on the people who vote for the candidates of parties like Green, Independent, etc? Do you think it's a waste of votes because there's really no chance those parties will win? Do you think it's good they're supporting having a bigger choice of political parties? Personally, I think that it's great in states like New York or Utah, etc, where it really doesn't matter because those states are decisively red or blue. I think it would be great to have actual choice from the political spectrum, seeing as how the Democratic and Republican parties are actually pretty similar. But in swing states, I think it's a waste. This might be kind of contradictory, but I just think that for now, that's the way it is.

So a little while ago, my brother was pronounced schizophrenic. He is being sent away to a "special" school, out of state, for a few years. I'm extremely close to my brother. Words cannot describe how upset I am.

I've missed the past two weeks of classes because of this. I am extremely behind, and have probably gone over the limit of allowed absences. I've missed two large tests. Should I just drop the classes, or send an email to my teachers explaining?

(Thing is, two of my teachers have a "there are no such thing as excused absences" policy, so I don't know if I'll be allowed back into the class :-\)


I honestly don't know what to do TQC. Should I go back, or start over next semester?

How do you figure out what a good lipstick color would be? Everything I get is either too peach or too red.

My boyfriend suggested moving to Canada in several years, and I figured I would look into it. It seems like it's a pretty popular idea, I found tons of articles on it and an immigration test that I thought was amusing, but I didn't actually pass. Do you know anyone who plans to move to Canada or already has? Why is this such a popular plan?
No grudge against Canada, I'm really just curious why so many people decided they wanted to move to Canada at around the same time.
