About two hours ago I burned by finger getting food out of the oven. I ran my finger under cold water and put some ice on it. I was icing it for about a hour and a half until I got tired of my finger going numb. The burn still hurts. Should I leave it alone or should I ice it some more?
It seems that whenever I have to be up early, I can't get a good night's sleep. I lie down 8-9 hours before my alarm is set and don't have any distractions, but I keep waking up several times during the night. It's getting pretty old.
How do you stay asleep? (I know most people don't have to try for this to happen...)
Also, does your sex drive work in cycles? My boyfriend just told me that apparently I want sex more often in the beginning of the month. I'm on a monophasic pill and skip the placebos, so it's not to do with those hormones, I think. I don't know.
Did you know that Halloween is the most decorated-for holiday (in the US) after Christmas?
My favorite "scary" doo-dads are a sign with a ghost that says "BOO" in orange lights, and another ghost that flashes different colors. What is your favorite Halloween decoration that you display or have seen?
It's crazy sock today at my kids' school - what favorite crazy socks do you own, and if you mixed and matched from different pairs, what would they be?
2) For acne + Blackhead treatment: Salicylic acid or Benzoyl peroxide?
3) Do you watch Heroes? If so, who is your favorite character? Least favorite?
4) A friend of mine's birthday is coming up. We used to be pretty close and then just stopped talking for a few months (not angry at each other, we just got sort of out of touch). Anyway, I'm invited to her party. So far I'm getting her a novel, I think I'll get her some kind of cool shampoo...I want to get her something else as well. She has extremely low self-esteem and is bulimic and anorexic. She's not unhealthily overweight, but she's curvy. Are there any art books out there that focus on photographs of beautiful, full-figured women or something similar to that?
5) One of my friends swears that cleaning off her anti-perspirant deoderant before bed helped her shoulder acne. Does this make sense or do you think any results she saw were just coincidence?
6) You've gone allll day without eating and it's 9 PM. You finally get away from what you were doing and go to pick up some groceries before heading home. You see a cooler in the store filled with bottles of milk. The only options are chocolate whole milk and white skim milk. Which bottle do you choose to tide you over? (No, you can't choose anything else. It's one of the milks or nothing.)
7) What does that phrase about doing something in one hand and crapping in the other mean? I've never understood it and I hear it a lot.
i woke up late today, i usually get up at around 7 and leave the house by 7:40 to get to work by like around 7:55. well, today i woke up at 7:27, left the house by 7:41 and made it to work by 7:55. :\ *whew*
how was YOUR morning?
do you know someone with..
a) only two letters in their first name? b) only three letters in their first name? c) only four letters in their first name?
1) How do you make your cramps go away? I changed bags and left my vicodin at home :(. 2) Do those heat wrap things really work? I'm about to use my PMS wrath and make the guy next to me go to Duane Reade. 3) Any other tips?
I got my upper lip waxed last weekend at home - not my first time, but like ever since I got the area waxed...these little rash like things that make me look like I have oral herpes keeps on appearing. (This has never happened to me before.) Has that ever happened to anyone? I applied anti itch cream last night cause they were kinda itchy...but it didn't seem to work...and I keep on getting more or that's what it looks like to me. And since I'm pale as a ghost...it really looks like I have herpes.
What can I do to make it go away? Any cream I should buy?
1.) What are some of your favorite album covers of all time? Post a picture of it if you wanna. 2.) What was the first tape/record/CD/8 track you ever owned? 3.) What kind of music do your parents listen to? What are some of their favorite bands? 4.) Do you have similar musical tastes as your folks?
I'm moving my blog to it's own website and letting my "personal" domain become something else. Mostly because I want people to read my blog, so I want to advertise it and it needed a domain that made sense.
Anyway. What color scheme should I go with for my new blog? It's a review site, mostly movies and tv. I'm not gonna use images unless I own them so it's more professional.
What sort of stuff could I put on my personal website?
Do you have a website? What's there? Links please!
Can anybody list some movies that take a modern day approach on a fairy tale? Something like Freeway 1 and 2 or Palindromes. Also any suggestions wouldnt have to be a dark take like those movies, but I like dark subject matter so that would be preferable :)
So I got shit results for my exams even though I did study. But I was preoccupied with something more important(also acadamically related) so I didn't study EXTREMELY hard. But still I am extremely disappointed with myself. Do you still think I can make it? (Yes I know I am being a lump of self pitying shit but I already feel like shit so)
Should I stay for my last class of the day or go home?
I have a midterm next week but she posts all the class outlines online and her lectures are mostly useless, plus she doesn't take attendance. BUT I have a friend in there who will possibly be annoyed with me if I don't go.
My work has a few celebratory dinners throughout the year. I've worked there for 2.5 years and I've never been to one because I'm not social and I don't know my coworkers well enough to socialize. But now I kind of want to but I'm not sure if I should go.
Reasons to go... - I've been friendly with a few of the coworkers over more recent months and would like to make the initiative to be friendly - It seems like so much fun, what with getting to be an adult at an adult activity for one night - I rarely ever go out, I haven't had a reason to dress cute for a reeeeeally long time - I'll regret not going because I know I'll feel left out and miss out on a fun evening
Reasons not to... - One coworker in particular and I have a verrrryyyy messy friendship right now. Fling gone bad, new girlfriend, head games, etc. - He is the one who directly invited me saying that his new girlfriend wants to meet me (because she's heard *soooo* much about me) - I'm not sure I want to meet her, I'm still not over him - As of last night we agreed not to talk for a while - It would be virtually impossible and even more frustrating in the grand scheme to go and not acknowledge him - My mom threw a tantrum when I asked her to babysit - I'll regret going because it's going to hurt to be friendly with him and his new girlfriend
I put lasagna in the oven for 45 minutes and the noodles were still relatively crunchy. It turns out I was supposed to pre-cook them, and I didn't. I put it back in the oven, hoping that baking it more will soften the noodles. Do you think I'll be able to get them as soft as desired by simply baking the lasagna longer, or should I just give up and eat it al dente?
EDIT: I put it in the oven for 35 more minutes and the noodles turned out fine. The cheese is carbon but it still tastes fine.
1.) Assume the government behind your food supply went defunct in the near future, thereby making your bio-survival tickets (money) useless in regards to acquisition of nutrition. How well would you fare on your own? Would you be able to identify which native plants are edible/not incredibly poisonous? Would you stand any chance of managing?
If its my cell phone and I like the person calling, I'll say a nice cheery "hi!". If it's my house phone, I'll just say "hellooo?" The kid next sitting next to me answered his phone "Was haht?" I laughed.
I need help finding a webcam like this one, but of Guadalajara, Mexico. I've been googling and googling, but I've been coming up short. Anyone know of any Guadalajara webcams or a directory of world webcams? edit: nvm. it's hopeless.
1) What would your reaction be if your 5' tall 95lb sister-in-law told you she was joining the Navy? 2) What are you having/did you have for dinner? 3) Do you enjoy chocolate milk? If so, what is your favorite kind? 4) If you have a DVR/Tivo, how many shows do you have saved on there that you need to watch? EDIT: If you don't have one, what would you record if you did? 5) What is your favorite type of candy to receive on Halloween?
Is a multi-city flight the same as a flight with a layover? I'm buying a discount e-cert through ebay for an airline that states it can't be used for multi-city flights. It can, however, be used for round-trip or one way.
Google leads me to websites that refer to multi-city flights as those with "complicated itineraries" which isn't helping. I emailed the seller and asked, "By multi-city, does that mean any flight with layovers?" and they said "No."
I just wanted to confirm what you guys thought. By google and the guy's answer, I'm lead to believe that multi-city refers to something totally different than a standard flight with a layover. If it helps, the airline is United and it appears that none of the flight schedules are non-stop to where I need to be anyway.
1) I'm really lethargic today, but I have to work for 5 hours tonight. I don't have any caffeinated things in the house...is there anything I can do/drink/eat to boost my energy level so I don't pass out at work?
2) What is your favorite cartoon theme song?
3a) How old are you? 3b) How old do you act? 3c) How old do you feel? 3d) How old do other people think you are?
After my father died last year, my sister and I were cleaning out my parents house and I came across some legal papers and old newspaper articles. The were about an adoption, the adoption of one of my older cousins. I mentioned this to my sister and she freaks out saying "don't say anything, he doesn't know." That sounded crazy to me, how can he not know he is almost 50 years old and there are many adopted children in our family, who know they were adopted including my sister and myself. I mentioned this new found information to another older cousin and got the same keep it on a hush reaction. The older cousin told my Aunt and she called me saying "Please don't tell him, we felt it's better that he doesn't know" . This man is an adult, married, with 5 children.
I have and will respect my Aunt and Uncles wishes but would you do the same?
so we've read a number of George Orwell's essays, and one is about why he writes, entitled " Why I Write", and it's quite awesome. our engish teacher wants us to write an personal essay with the title " Why I ____". in previous years people have written fun/funny essays such as " Why I Smoke Crack" (true story), as well as serious essays such as " Why I Cut Myself" (sadly, also true)
here's the problem:
i like writing myself, but i can't write about my writing as i'm young and it would be complete copy-cat of Orwell. i don't mind writing a personal story as my teacher is cool, but i can write funny though it usually has a negative spin on things.
1. what should i write about? I'm thinking of writing about my adoption and how i don't look like my mother, (the rest of my family looks like i could biological be apart of them). i could probably combine seriousness and humor, but i'm not sure how i feel about my teacher knowing that much about me. any suggestions? (they can't be "Why I Like Cheese", it has to be an action)
2. if you were given this assignment, what would you write about?
1. How do you feel about people who appear happy and are smiling almost constantly? They could just be walking down the street, sitting on a bus, or doing some mundane task alone on the job, but are always smiling. Do you feel it's overboard or do you admire their attitude? Would you say you're one of these people?
2. When someone has something in their teeth or on their face that is immediately fixable do you let them know?
Do you trust your SO with your computer? Do they trust you with theirs?
What about with your login information for websites? Your credit card information? Your SS?
I started a heartfelt paragraph about something for a paper and now I'm not in that passionate mood to continue my message sincerely, but the paper is due tomorrow.
Should I just ditch that paragraph even though it's something I really want my professor to know or ignore the gross fake liar feeling and try to finish it even though I don't know what I was going to say?
Someone called my friend's cell phone and didn't leave a message. The number they called from is 1-866-823-6977. I googled the number and a bunch of complaints about that number came up. Unfortunately, it doesn't say who or what company it is. Just says they call people a lot and hang up and when you call back it sounds like a fax line or the line is busy.
so... Does anyone know what company it is from?
off topic... what is your favorite drink at starbucks right now?
Has anyone got any advice about dealing with landlords?
My bed broke last week, and I'm fairly certain there must have been a prior fault, because what I was doing to it at the time couldn't have caused as much damage as it did.
I rang him three times with now answer, until I changed my phone to display 'private number', and I got through immediatly. I told him I just flopped on it and it broke, (almost the exact truth) and I thought it must have been a previous problem, but he said it's strange for it to hold up a month and then collapse.
I know legal issues change between jurisdictions, but does anyone have any general tips on either getting him to replace it, or getting him to let me repair it instead of having to buy a new one?
I'm right in the middle of moving to my boyfriend's. I've managed to drop my TV & completely break it apart, a really precious snowglobe went flinging off a stack of stuff of its own accord & broke, and my boyfriend set fire to one of my favourite dresses with his ciggarette. ARGH!
Have you had any moving horror stories?
Has anything great happened to you today?
Anything really bad?
Please cheer me up, I'm feeling emotional waiting for my boyfriend & his friend to come pick me up & take me off to my new, tv-less home!
Apologies in advance for a silly question, but I took some vicodin and my google-fu is hindered at the moment.
In the original Kirby's Dreamland game for the NES, at the end of each board it said "Push A!" and you'd soar up into the clouds and get extra points. How does that work? Do you hold A when Kirby hits the push-off platform or do you tap it? I can't figure it out.
And for the appropriate question:
Do you like the Grateful Dead? What's your impression of them?
I need advice. I'm a freshmen in college. I hate it. I hate the classes the people and everything. The first 3 weeks they put me in a hotel about 30 minutes away from my school without food and a barely ever running shuttle (the hotel was in the middle of nowhere.) At the moment I am home for a week due to a manic breakdown, which will most likely happen again if I go back.
Here are the questions.
Should I stay in college? When do you stop doing something to make someone happy if it makes you unhappy?
I really do not know what to do. I did amazingly well in highschool and don't want to be a college drop out, but I'm unsure if it's for me, especially this school.
Maybe I'll just kill myself and end it for everyone! yay.
My friend got one of those Japanese style pin straight hair perms (magic straight hair)...the permanent ones you get done at a salon. And she wants to dye her hair ...would it mess up the chemicals in her hair and make it all frizzy and wavy or would it be totally fine? She got her hair done on Friday...btw.
and I don't really know how to wear it. I mean, what to wear it with to make it look more, I don't know, nice or something and less kiddish. I was thinking just a white tank top with a cardigan over it, but I'm not sure of the color. Any suggestions?
And... for those of you who approve of tights under skirts like these: right now I have black tights and grey tights. Will either of these work? The black ones are footless (AKA LEGGINGS) and the grey ones are normal tights. If neither of those sound good, what color would work best? I'm pale (obviously).
If I (an American) were to move to a non-English-speaking country and live my daily life speaking the language native to that country, would I eventually have a foreign accent when I spoke English? If so, how long would it take to develop?
Do you have a totally silly superstition? What is it?
(I refuse to watch an entire sports game on tv. If I come in 20 minutes late, take some time off in the middle, or miss the end... somehow they tend to win. My team never wins if I watch the entire game. Then again, I was raised a Cubs fan, so I'm set up for disappointment from the get-go)
My currenty boyfriend and I were friends before we were a couple. Does anyone know any quotes about friendship turning into a romatic relationship? What are the quotes? I know there are some out there I just can't find them.
Who's the black guy in season six of Smallville? I tried google, but "black guy +smallville +season 6" didn't yield results, and as I've only seen the first three episodes I don't know what character he'll be playing, and I wouldn't recognize the name in a cast list. I just saw his picture on the DVD case and he looks so familiar. Help please?
