What was the last thing that annoyed you to no end?

My answer:
There is this girl that I work with who is a total health nut. She thinks it's her job to tell everyone what they're eating is bad for them. For instance, I was eating a grilled chicken wrap with ranch dressing and she's like, "Oh, ranch dressing is really bad for you." I was drinking iced tea and she says to me, "You really should drink more water." THEN, all of us girls were talking about hair and she pretty much told us that we'll all get cancer b/c we dye our hair. Should I say something to her? If yes, what should I say while remaining professional?

too forward or just right?

even though we live far apart, i've recently become very interested in a friend of mine. luckily he's returned this interest and even though he said it's crappy that we're far and can't see each other too often now (i.e. he just started medical school and i'm an undergrad) the biggest thing that's holding him back from me is that he thinks i'm smarter than him and that scares him. i wanted to punch him in the face at first but i know intelligence is one of those things he's self-conscious about and i wanted to let him know how i feel about him in spite of that. is sending him this song:
"This Modern Love", Bloc Party

too forward or just right to fully let him know where i'm at with this? it just completely describes the situation perfectly.

1. When I am at work, I am required to make rounds of my building every few hours. That's all well and good, but I haven't figured out a way to do it efficiently (without much backtracking) and it's driving me nuts. Maybe there isn't really a way to do it, but maybe you guys have suggestions.

Under the cut is an awesome picture of the layout of my building. The sections with the red X's are stairs, and I have to start and end at the lounge/office.

The way I do it right now is office, all first floor rooms, up the stairs at the end of the hall, all 2nd floor, up the stairs at the high end, all 3rd floor, up the stairs at the low end, all 4th floor, back down 4th high, up the middle staircase, all of 5th floor, then back down the stairs at the low end, up the first floor rooms to the office again.

I feel like there should really be a better way to do this!

2. Is there anybody here who is just not cut out for academia? I don't mean that you can't afford college or haven't had an opportunity to go, but that you have tried and simply can't DO it. How/why did you decide to quit? What is the highest level you've completed? What kind of job have you had?

I'm plenty smart enough, but I have severe anxiety and I am honestly wondering if I am ever going to graduate because I am struggling with this so much. Being in school makes me miserable, but when I'm not in school I am much more comfortable.

3. Do you think it is unrealistic for me to hope to open my own business a few years down the road even if I am unable to complete my bachelor's degree?

Anyone know if the University of Michigan - Flint has a mascot? Apparently my google-fu is weak, as I can't find any info about it (or about their athletic programs in general).

Mmmmmm, gimme cookie!

There's a certain little cookie that I totally love and I don't know what it's called or anything. Because I don't know what it's called, I have no way of asking a bakery for it or finding a recipe for it, and have not had one in years. Who knows, it might not even have a special name, but it's worth a shot to ask, right? I tried searching google images and didn't find anything that looked right.

It's a chocolate cookie, and it's not flat like most cookies but has a bit of height to it. It's hard, cracked-looking, and rather shiny on the outside... It's hard enough that you can tap it and it doesn't dent it. The inside is soft, and all together, it's rather chewy. The ones I've had have never had chocolate chips in them, but I think I've had some with walnuts in them. Usually they don't have anything like that though.

Does this ring a bell to anyone? Does this cookie have a name?

Would you be upset if you found out your SO was advertising for new friends of the same gender as you online? And if gender isn't an issue, would you be upset if you knew they were looking for friend's online?
Yeah..I made it..delete it if you want.

3. if you choose the less publicity to no in question number two, what kind of facts would you say?

Clothes & things.

1. What's something that your S/O [or person of interest] wears that you find extremely attractive?
For me it'd be these plaid shorts he wears.

2. What makes it attractive to you?
I don't know really, he just looks so sexy in them.

3. What's your favorite article of clothing that you wear?
It's a white shirt with zebras on it.


I am part of a group of writers and artists. We're going to write a collection of short stories and sell it for charity, and  make a calendar and sell that for charity too. (the same charity).
Since we're writers and artists,  and we're from all over the world, what charity should we support? We'd prefer it to be fairly small, and preferably non religious, in the sense that it's not all about instilling Christian Values into people or something, because we're from all sorts of religious backgrounds (or lack of religious backgrounds).

2. Out of anywhere in the world, where would you like to go, and why?

3. My cousin has this cat and I've always been allergic to it, but only when I was petting it, and never quite so bad as it was last night. Last night, however, the cat was locked in the basement (out of deference to said allergies). Did this cat become angry about its imprisonment and, hulk-like, acquire supernatural powers to shoot fur up my nose from behind the basement door?

Do you have a favorite program for making LJ icons?
I used to have a program that came with an old photoshop and after I had to do a reinstall of XP on my laptop, I found the program no longer works, or at least the updated version of XP won't recognize it so I'm out one program that I'm familiar with.
Is there any free programs that are relatively easy?
I would usually make the icon in photoshop at a large size, then copy paste it into the program and then it would be the right size without getting all pixilated.

I've tried just setting the image size in photoshop to the right size and then putting the image in there and resizing it, but it gets pixilated.

EDIT: Okay, I'm good. motorcade reminded me what the name of the program i used before was and all is good now. THANKS!!

Every time I read something on TQC (or anywhere else) about the US healthcare system, I want to cry. It's astounding that healthcare is considered a privilege rather than a right in the richest country in the world.

So, TQC:

Can you afford to go to the doctor, specialist or hospital when you or your family need to?

Has there ever been a situation in which you or your family coud not afford medical care, to the detriment of your health?

Do you have health insurance?

Would you like to see the US move more towards a universal healthcare system?

My father and I have very close birthdays, so I've always ben forced to celebrate however he wants to and never got a choice of what I wanted to do. When I turned sixteen, I wasn't allowed to have a sweet sixteen party like my sister had because my father thought it was too girly, so I had to go bowling instead. I haven't celebrated my birthday since then because I know I'll have to do whatever my dad wants.

Is it stupid that one of the things I'm looking forward to about living on my own is celebrating my birthday?
When I finally am able to move out, what should I do to commemorate that first birthday on my own?
Do you have a birthday close to your parents or another sibling? Do you celebrate together?

My sister just found out that she's having triplets (two identical, one fraternal)... Do any of you have any advice I should pass on to her?

How would you feel if you were the fraternal twin to identical twins?
Maybe the third wheel can commiserate with my nephew, who has been the only child for the last two years and will probably want to murder his siblings when they arrive :)

In February my ex-bf gave me a "promise ring".  It wasn't uber-expensive, but it was about $200.  I took it off the night I broke up with him, but I don't know what to do with it.  I'm never going to wear it again, but I don't know what he would do with it if I gave it back.  He's not the type to give it to another gf.  Ha's also extremely sensitive, and he had a minor meltdown when I broke up with him; I don't want to hurt him even more.  So should I give it back or keep it?

BTW, it was a long-distance relationship, and I had to break up with him over the phone, which is why I didn't just hand it to him.

Edit:  I broke up with him about a month ago, in case it matters.  And by the time I get everything together to send to him, it'll probably be close to Christmas.

time for the sad.

So a couple months ago I noticed my elbow was really really dry. I chalked it up to swimming, and got some Eucerin dry skin therapy plus. It's pretty amazing. I thought everything was fine, until I started wearing long sleeves again- my elbow is still dry enough to catch to fabric and it hurts!
What can I do, oh wise question club? I'd rather not be stuck with bandaids on my elbow till spring.

What are the best methods to learn fluent spanish at home? I took spanish for 5 years in school so I might remember the minimal basics but not a lot. Eventually, I should probably talk online and offline to people who speak spanish and at some point go to a country or area where it's spoken fluently. But in the meantime, what can I do at home? Certain books, websites...? There is so much out there I don't know what is the best and will produce good results. Thanks.

Which death would you prefer?

Taking a bullet for the president. It's a gut shot and your death is very slow and very painful, but much acclaim is brought to your name and family
You have a sudden fatal heart attack when you push too hard while taking a large poop. You die instantly with a poop still dangling from your poophole

Which death would you prefer?

You die during extremely rigorous, satisfying sex. Heart attack, sudden, and you don't even suffer. It's with an attractive person you were having an affair with. Your SO will find out how you died
During a kidnapping, you manage to kick the driver and the car of 5 felons (and you) goes over a bridge. All die instantly but you, who suffers major injuries and expires 7 hours later

Which death would you prefer?

You're victim #27, and the final victim, or a vicious serial killer in your city. You're butchered alive, but it was through your manhunt that the guy is caught.
You die alone in your sleep. You don't feel it. No one knows you died and your body isn't discovered until 6 months later. Not one person checked up on you until then

The question is for those who are either in a relationship or have been in one long enough to know. It's also mostly for men, because I think we generally part-take in this activity more/often.

When you're in a relationship, do you still still (want to) masturbate. If so, how often do you do it, in what situations, and why? Also please specify if you're a guy or a girl.

EDIT: If you say yes, please try to explain why you do it. Maybe your SO isn't around, maybe something else?

EDIT 2: The numbers (re who masturbates more) in my original assumption were apparently incorrect, but according to a number of studies men do masturbate more: 1) 2) 3)

Why do some people act like only they know what "real" pain is and dismiss everyone else as attention whores/whiners/pussy teenagers/whatever when they don't even know the person they are bitching to or about?

Monday is Fictional Character day but I'm only going to school for 3rd period so I don't have to worry about this.

Tuesday is Sports team and my friend and i are doing a curling team. We're making shirts and carrying brooms around all day.

Wednesday is rockstar day and the only idea I have is to have a friend use a sharpie and draw full tattooed sleeves on me.

Thursday is royalty day.

Note: the amount that I can get into the actual drain itself is very limited, as there's only about a quarter of an inch of space in between the drain and the cover (maybe a half inch, but I'm not sure). Any tips?

scar creamz

I was on Accutane for almost 8 months...but I had to get off of it cause I skipped an appointment one month, and since they're very anal about the whole doctor said I'd have to come back in a month to continue using it, that is if I kept getting zits.

And I heard from someone that Accutane doesn't help scars go away...and that I'd have to either use cream or get laser surgery. When I started using Accutane, scars just came out of nowhere and they don't seem to be going away any time soon. I don't have money for surgery but I think I can do the prescription scar cream. question is, what's the best prescription scar cream that I can use that works quick? I googled it up and got 3 types...but just wanted to get your opinions first if you guys used any and wanted to tell me what you thought of them.

1. What proposal did you use your free $30 gift certificate that LJ/Six Apart gave you toward?

( Incase you don't know what I'm talking about.. ;) It's really cool. Between yesterday and tomorrow if you email " " They'll send you a gift certificate for $30 that you can use toward any of the school proposals listed on )

I chose this one. :)

-- Also.. lots of differing opinions on this promotion out there. A lot of people are refusing to do it because they don't trust Livejournal?Six Apart because of all the drama with recent things LJ has been doing with fandom/etc.

2. Do you think this is a good thing they're offering, or bad?

I want to plan a trip to Old Orchard Beach, Maine this next summer(yes, I know this is waaay in advance). The thing is, the cabins we used to stay at are no longer there. If anyone here's been up there lately, is there anywhere you'd recommend? Anywhere I should stay away from? I'd like something on the less expensive side and it's not important to be on the beach itself. I'd like personal stories please.

 When someone uses a lot of punctuation marks, does it change how you perceive them at all?
Not someone you actually know in real life, but someone you see posting/commenting or something.

Why does my cat constantly try to eat plastic? I don't let him, of course, and keep it away from where he can get it, but if someone opens up a plastic package he cries and tries to get at it.
frickin' funny!

Yesterday I received an advertisement in the mail for a storage company. It was actually quite funny. It was a postcard that said "Your closet is tinier than a runway model's lunch." And there was a mint lifesaver taped to it. It made me LOL IRL.

What was the last thing you received in the mail that made you happy?

So I'm trying to write a grocery list of [semi] healthy things that are easy to make. For example, I put a bunch of fruits on there so I could make a fruit salad. I also put some vegetable salad ingredients on there for a regular salad. My parents are trying to save money, so I'm going to make my brother and sister's after school crap this week (instead of just buying poptarts, hidden valley bars, cereal, and bags of chips).

Basically, what else should I add on? I want three more ideas before I hand in the list.

1 - Meat is fine.
2 - I forgot! Dinner suggestions would be great, also.

Music video?

1. I'm looking for a music video. All I know is it features a guy and a girl. The girl is like a ghost... she disappears right at the end and the guy is left standing alone. I've got absolutely no idea who sings it or what the song is, I just remember the video. Do you know it? Can you tell me it?!

I know that's incredibly vague and there are lots of videos like it but here's the best place to ask - there's always someone who knows it.

2. Who's your favourite Friends character?

Why do people think it's necessary to tell smokers that it's bad for them?

do you find it hard to be honest with people? like say when they ask you for your opinion about something or maybe even ask for advice on a certain situation.. do you tell them like it is (taking into account not to hurt their feelings) or do you bite your tongue? does it depend on who the person is?

how honest do you think people are with you?

I'm making a Slayer CD for my car, and I'm wodnering: What songs should go on the CD? I have Angel of Death, Hell Awaits, Eyes of the Insane, Jihad, Jesus Saves, and Disciple, but that's not enough to fill a CD. Any other suggestions?

Also, if you know Amon Amarth, what songs should I put on a CD for them?

What is your opinion of Urban Outfitters, Inc.?
Do you shop at any of their stores? (Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Free People)
What was the last thing you purchased if you do shop with them?

Do you think it's unfair to independent companies that larger companies can get away with using their designs, seemingly without permission?

I want to get my lip pierced so it'd look like this:

But the problem is that I my parents don't want me getting it until I'm 18 which won't be another year considering that I just turned 17 on Thursday. I really want it and feel it's stupid that I already have 2 tattoos [which I'm very grateful that they let me get tattoos] but can't get a piercing that will close up overnight if I don't like it.
I know a lot of you will say, "Just wait, you're too young and you don't need to get it done now anyway."

But; what are some points that I could use that might make them realize it's really not so bad, if I decide to sit down and talk to my parents about maybe getting it? I want to have some decent things to say so I don't sound like I haven't put any thought into it.
I'm thinking of saying things along the line of, "It will close up very quickly if we don't like it and I'm just gonna get it when I turn 18 anyway so why not just let me get it now?"
