Does it change how you feel if the molester was sexually molested during childhood?

Does it change how you feel if the molester was sexually molested during childhood?
Nice language. Do you kiss your mother with that mouth?
You gonna eat that?
______ is the new black. What is the new black?
Do you LOVE me now that I can dance?
I can't figure out how to deal with it - refusing to patronize them is one thing but it wouldn't stop what they're doing.
EDIT: I'm endlessly amused at the people whose response to this sort of potential situation is "The bank will refund your money, stop whining" - it's easy to spot who's never had their identity stolen, the ones who think it's just a minor inconvenience that can be fixed with a simple phone call.
2) I was exercising today, like, an hour after I ate the birthday cake. I couldn't finish my whole set of exercises because I felt so woozy and weak. I don't have muscles of STEEL or anything, but I am seriously not that out of shape. I've been able to complete the exercises before without any problem. The cake was very little cake and mostly frosting, so that makes me wonder...Could the sugar have done something weird to me?
3) How are you doing, really?
4) Let's say someone is jokingly putting their arms around you and tickling you. You tell them to stop and they laugh it off (repeatedly). Is jamming your knee up their crotch (well, not actually UP, but I think you get what I mean) an overreaction? What if you warn them before hand?
5) I have a friend who constantly comments on other people's fashion sense/acne/hair/physical appearance in general. She's always saying how someone has "no business wearing that" or whatever. This seems hugely self-centered to me. It's not like people leave the house intent on catering to her personal aesthetic preferences. Thoughts?
6) We were all sitting and having a conversation, a few friends of mine and a few acquaintances. Randomly, a guy tells another friend of mine (who has a little worse than mild acne) "Have you ever tried Proactive?" We were NOT discussing skin care or anything even related to skin. I told the guy off for it right then in front of everyone else. Now people think I'm a huge bitch and are saying that if I was going to do it, I should have pulled him aside and done it privately. Honestly, what do you think? I'm not going to deny that I jump on people...A lot. But I don't think I was completely unjustified. I didn't insult him or swear at him, I just told him that he was being rude, inconsiderate, and that commenting on things like that makes people feel uncomfortable. Also to mind his own business.
It's been happening randomly and unpredictably for months. We mentioned it to the vet and she took some urine and blood samples, but everything seemed fine so she... said she had no idea, pretty much. We have to be careful to not let the dog on the bed or in carpeted rooms and it's getting old for her and us. She's an otherwise healthy 3 year-old, 100 pound American Bulldog mix.
Have you ever heard of a dog doing that? What should we do? WTF? HALP?
ETA: Thanks for the suggestions, guys! We're going to take her to another vet tomorrow for a second opinion.
Two] Can you describe yourself with three words that begin with the letter 'S'? Be creative, please.
Three] What's the worst thing you've ever done to your body?
Four] When have you felt prettiest? Do you have pictorial evidence? If so, can I see?
What's a small/insignificant thing you like?
2. Do you have a recent embarassing story?
3. Spiders: Cool, ok or small creatures of pure evil?
4. Could I make these questions more random?
( Collapse )
1) Do you have one or know someone who does?
2) About how much did it cost?
3) Did the piercer use a clamp or do it free hand?
4) What was the experience like?
5) The only other time I've been pierced was when I got my ears pierced at Claire's for my 9th birthday. I went with my friend to get his nipples pierced, but that's as far as my tattoo & piercing parlor history goes. What should I look for and what questions should I ask the area parlors to know they're clean, safe and legit? I know to make sure they use a clean needle every time and sterilize their equipment and all that. :)
6) Anything else I ought to know?
Oh, and do you have any chocolate chip cookies? And if so, may I have one?
I'm partial to a bit of Eddie Izzard or Billy Connolly myself but I'm hoping to branch out ;)
1. There was a question about exes earlier today in TQC that got to me thinking about my last ex saying I was the only girl he knew that didn't wear necklaces.
So to the females here.....
Do you wear a necklace?

Italian, German, Cherokee Indian
b. What's your nationality?
c. What's your race?
d. What's your first name?
(Awful lot of estrogen in here, no?)
Have you ever been afraid to let go?
Is okay to let go of something that should work out but nobody cares to talk about it?
Is it okay to have a small, secret longing for something you know you can't have and shouldn't want?
Do you blow your nose in public? Why/why not?
Should I go get orange juice even though I'm not supposed to drive because I'm having dizzy spells? (7-11 is walking distance, but again, dizzy spells)
Is this week going slow for you too?
I love you do you love me?
Are we a happy family?
Is this a good idea or one that could be taken wrong?
What was the last thing you just didn't do because you were too tired or had better things to do?
What is the weather like today? Where do you live?
2] Are they called that in America, or do you call them craneflies?
3] When will they all die?
4] Are there lots or none in New York?
Or, what do you recommend? I'm doing a small dinner party with some friends next weekend, and I'm serving rack of lamb with oven roasted potatoes and green beans sauteed in butter with shallots and parsley.
My mom suggested pate but it seems a little heavy and rich, especially since this will be a multi course dinner with salad, bread and cheese, and dessert to follow (in that order).
EDIT: thanks for the quick help, at work in meeting and knew TQC wouldnt let me down, no time to search myself.. (trying to find wine varietal names that cater to the trader joe's customer)
[I get best friend, is the last word forever?]
2] What does 'IAWTC' mean?
Wake up in the morning, feeling shy and lonely, gee I gotta go to school...
I am currently taking 15 credits. When I was registering for classes, for some reason I was under the impression that classes taken to fulfill my requirement for my theatre minor cannot be counted as gen ed classes, so I signed up for a random music history class to count as my fine arts.
Last week, I went to talk to my advisor. I was considering dropping another class I am in, but she wouldn't let me. She looked at my current schedule and was like "why on earth are you taking this music class, you really don't need it, if you're going to drop anything it should be that one."
So, the deadline to withdraw from a class is this Friday. The music class really does not stress me out at all because it is ricockulously easy, but in the past I have felt more comfortable taking only 12 credits, because I am pathetic like that.
Pros to keeping the music class
-could potentially make deans list (you have to be taking at least 14 credits)
-it's fun and interesting
Pros to dropping the music class
-I wouldn't have class until 1:25pm on MWF (as opposed to 10:10am)
-I would have more time to devote to work for my other classes (particularly the one I had wanted to drop - this is a BIG plus)
-I wouldn't have to worry about missing a pop quiz if I am running a little late or if I forget my clicker
So.... should I keep it or drop it?
When I was in second grade, my friend and I lip-synched to some song by Alvin & the Chipmunks. I was Brittany and she was Alvin.

What do you think of President Bush saying he will veto a bill that will expand health insurance for a program called SCHIP, a state-federal program that provides coverage for 6.6 million children from families that live above the poverty level but have trouble affording private insurance?

2. how should i dress for my husband's high school reunion? semi-formal? jeans and a tshirt? (eta: it's being held a country club.)
3. do you strain when you poop? do you worry about aneurisms?
4. when will my knee stop hurting? it's been like a week now and i didn't do anything to hurt it!
Edit: I meant to ask whether it worked well with your body chemistry. Aside from not getting pregnant.
Also, when it comes to your alcohol consumption, what kind of drinker do you consider yourself - light, average, a binge drinker, an alcoholic-in-training, or something else?
BUT there's a part of me that thinks it'd be friggin awesome to become a graphic designer. or microsoft certified. or something.
if you were me, would you "give up your day job" and branch out to try something new for no real reason?
I'm 25, for the record. (and own a house, and am married, and am also a professional wedding/portrait photographer but that's not my full time job). I also make about $44k/year, and would like to stay in at least that range once all is said and done.
oh, and what random branch out, trainable job should I get? lol
2. Are you sleepy?
How do you prepare yourself for the fact that you're going to lose someone great?
2) Whenever interviewers ask me if I have any questions, I honestly can't come up with anything, so I say "No, I think you've covered everything I had questions about". Is this bad to do? What questions should I have ready to go?
3) I'm going to The Topsfield Fair this weekend. What should I do? What kind of fair food should I get?
4) What do YOU do at an agricultural/county fair?
5) When buying something online, do you google for coupon codes? What's the best discount you've gotten from one? I got $8 off my order once, w00t
How long did it take you to drive afterward?
Yesterday I was on the freeway doing about 70. This woman tried to merge into me, and I jerked the wheel to the side to avoid hitting her. Next thing I knew my car was spinning in circles and we hit the median. I do not want to get back into a car EVER AGAIN :-(
On top of this, a woman ran a red light two weeks ago and hit my car really badly. 2 car accidents in 2 weeks. How lovely :-(
i'm not sure exactly how it goes, but i've tried googling it like 60 times.
i want it for mysapceee.
"shoes...let's get some shoesss."
it sounds like a lispy guy singing.
I think the word sneeze is really weird. And bus is pretty much the funniest word evar.
If so, what was it? Were you successful into making yourself like it?
If not, why are you answering this question? It's boring for you. Go answer something else.
If you've seen 3:10 to Yuma, what'd you think?
-Anyone else think Kenny Loggins is awesome and very vocally versatile in genre?
-For those who like the ladies, do you prefer skinnier girls or ones with a little more curve?
-Puzzle Bobble. I can kick anyone's ass on it.
-Bring on the curvy girls!
My psych prof put it as a question on an exam to explain why one would have nothing to do with the other, which was easy enough to answer but I'm wondering why the fuck anyone would ever assume one would have anything to do with the other?
Do you assume that everyone has a certain trait because people of your same gender, age, and particular living environment have that trait?
2. So my aunt and uncle drove me around to stalk a certain professional baseball player on Sunday (well, to find his house [we never found it]). What is the weirdest thing that someone in your family has helped you or encouraged you to do?
3. How are you feeling today?
4. What was the last big change you made in your life?
When you reply to a question, do you read the other answers first or answer first, then read?
2 - What was the saddest day of your life and why?

He's had his vaccinations, the last one about a month ago.
He's been tested for worms and came up negative.
Normally I feed him Science Diet for kittens, the dry kind, but the vet gave me some Royal Canine (feline), Limited Ingredients to try. Everything just keeps coming back up. He's lost 7 ounces in the last 4 days.
edit: he's also still very playful & alert. chases everything and still loves running around, no signs of lethargy or anything like that... just can't seem to keep his food down.
AND he's an indoor kitty, if that helps at all.
It is with great honor that I get the opportunity to say this......
I would like to formally invite you to my very exclusive birthday bash at Pop Noir @ Static, located in the Downtown Gaslamp area of San Diego this Friday, September 28th.
I feel that the only way to celebrate a birthday is to do it with those you truly love who have been there for you for a long time. I feel like you've all been there for me. It may have only been since the beginning of the year, but I feel like I've known you all forever and you are all very near and dear to my heart. You've really helped me with a lot. If it weren't for you, I might currently be carrying crabs. It would really mean a lot to me.
Desperate for more?
Can't make it?
Log onto ExpressMen this Friday for my explosive tell-all interview and never-before-seen pictures.

I think it's interesting and besides.. last night I had a dream about tornado's. lots of them. I had a similar dream a few months ago. it's never just one tornado.. it's always a half dozen or so. and in the dreams I'm always at home when I see them and I panic and think of ways to escape. what do you think that could mean?
1. I have one girl who is severly ADD/ADHD. She won't take her medication and her dad won't make her. I meet with her once a week for an hour with two other girls. Are there any tips for getting her or any child with severe ADD/ADHD to focus for that hour? I have heard giving her something to do with her hands might help, like clay or play-doh.
2. I have another girl in a different group who is a cutter. Have you ever self-harmed?
2a. Do you know anyone who has? Did they tell you or did you see physical signs?
2b. What do you think is the rationale behind self-harm?
3. What kind of sex-ed did you get in school? This abstinence only stuff is killing me.
I am doing it now. This could take years lol
do you ever eat breakfast for lunch or dinner?
what do you do when telemarketers call?
How much time should I budget for it? Are we talking like an hour or a day? Can I just bring a book or should I make my roommate drive out with me so we can come home/do other things?

How can I make it so that I don't feel like I'm about to die?

...eat an entire pie, after some guy 'enjoyed' it, American Pie-style?
...get a 4" x 3" tattoo, anywhere on your body, that says FREE O.J. SIMPSON?
...post a picture of yourself, completely naked, on your journal and keep it up for 1 day?
...get your hair cut into a mullet? Mullet extensions for those of you with short hair. You must sport said mullet for 2 weeks
...go streaking through the mall closest to where you live? Security will be distracted and will not take action against your indecency
...be willing to lose your sight for an entire week? Completely opaque contacts are fitted over your eyeballs, which will obscure all vision, with no lingering side effects except blindness. One week

do you know who Patrick Fugit is?
i ran into my friend at the bus stop today and somehow our conversation devolved into an argument about whether or not Patrick Fugit is actually famous. i think a lot of people know who he is but she said something like, "Come on, it's his mom, us and 6 other people. No one knows who he is."
so, TQC, end this debate!

I currently have a very purple/black bruise on my leg just below where the dress ends. It's huge. Easily 6" by 4". I have a few smaller ones on my other leg as well.
I'm going to by some pantyhose in hopes of muting it a bit, but that won't do to cover it completely. How do I hide it!?!?!?!?
I'm going to try some foundation tonight at home. I don't have time to run around town to buy special tattoo cover-up or anything, so anything that could be done with stuff from a drugstore would be fantastic.
2. My boss is planning on ordering new business cards for all of us. He wants each of us to choose a personalized "buzz word" to be printed on our cards. He got a card from someone and it said "Marathoner" which my boss thought was cool cause it's a conversation starter.
What would your buzz word be? My boss suggested I put "Pez" on mine since I collect, but that seems odd to me.
After getting stitches removed recently, I have a scar about 3/4 inch long on the inside of my wrist. I'd like to get rid of it, as it looks kind of like I tried to hurt myself (I didn't). Is there any way to get it to go away, or at least stop being itchy?
Do you have any cool scars?

I just really miss my cute smile.
When was the last time you really felt sorry for/pitied someone?
He's gotten towels, a rack that was hanging on the wall, the vacuum, the door, the door frame, shoes...
So we're thinking about getting a muzzle. The kind that lets the animal still drink (we don't feed him until 5:00 anyway, so him not being able to eat wouldn't be a problem).
Do you think this is a good idea?
Getting a crate is kind of out of the question, and we already keep him in the laundry room so he doesn't further tear up the furniture and carpet.
