Do you think your hands or your feet are more aesthetically pleasing?
My hands.  My feet are kind of dry and cracked on the bottom. :(  I'm not overly fond of my hands either, though.

What is the most serious physical injury you've had?
I tore my ACL threeish years ago.  Hurrah for knee surgery.

What was your worst halloween costume?
Haha, it's not really bad, but I had a shiny sequined mermaid costume that I work in 4th grade.  My best friends' mom still remembers this, and talks about me wandering around in an evening gown. -_-  Also, I'm now a junior in college, so apparently it was very memorable.

Have you heard Radiohead's new album In Rainbows yet?

If not, WHY? It's free.

I haven't because I just found out about it, and it hasn't finished downloading yet.

While listening to the radio at work today a song came on i have heard a zillion times without understanding the lyrics of the chorus with vaguely a care what they were. All of a sudden i really wanted to know the lyrics. Ever done that?
It's a female vocalist, and it sounds like this to me:
Lo-ove thurth,
Thing thing, thong thurth,
Thith ith thary

Anyone know this song, please?

Can you think of any reason why LJ would randomize my icons when I post? I installed LJ Hook and GreaseMonkey for Firefox but it didn't say anything about randomizing my icons.

Edit: OK thanks. It was LJ Hook. I didn't see that option when I downloaded it and I forgot to check the Add-ons menu I was just right clicking and looking at those options.

inner calm [Oct. 11th, 2007|01:15 am]

[_fortress]
          In order to balance out my adventurous, high strung, and overly analytical side, my therapist has recommended that I find a way to bring a sense of calm into my life.  I'm not sure how I should go about doing this.  I am not religious or very spiritual, so that is out. 

1. What are some ways that one can bring inner calm into their life?  What are some things that truly work for you?

2. If you are spiritual (but not religious) in what ways do you express that?

3. Hypothetical situation: Say your kinda into someone you've only known for a couple of weeks. However you've barely spoken to one another. Do you just randomly request to be added or wait till you get to know them more?

4. TQC, will you please tell me how immensely STOOOOPID I am for freaking out about possibly requesting an add from a guy I'm kinda into and barely know? Hmph. Anyone care to talk me into it?

[rowanx]
On October 10th, I received 19 calls from the same number. The 4 times I did answer the phone, the conversation was only long enough for me to say hello and for him to say "sorry, wrong number". How the hell do you dial a wrong number 19 times in the same day?

I did a reverse phone look-up and found out his info. I do not know of anyone by the name that the phone record gave to me or even recognize the home address. I don't know anyone for that matter that even lives on that particular street.

Here's the call record:
Call Record for October 10 2007
Call 1: 11:32 am
Call 2: 1:46pm
Call 3: 1:53pm
Call 4: 1:58pm (answered, duration: 6 seconds)
Call 5: 2:07pm
Call 6: 2:11pm
Call 7: 2:17pm
Call 8: 2:19pm
Call 9: 2:20pm
Call 10: 2:23pm (answered, duration: 5 seconds)
call 11: 2:28pm
Call 12: 2:48pm
Call 13: 2:58pm
Call 14: 3:09pm
Call 15: 10:08pm
Call 16: 10:12pm
Call 17: 10:27pm (answered, duration: 7 seconds)
call 18: 10:33pm
Call 19: 10:38pm (answered, duration: 10 seconds)

Yes, this was all from the same number, from the same guy claiming he had the wrong number. Look at how close some of the call times are. The scarier thing is, he has called my number before. It was only once or twice a day every other month or so. Is there something I can do about this besides changing my number? Should I be worried? Or could this person just be a complete retard and not realized he dialed the same number 19 times in the same day?
 

Edit: Oh, I'm in the U.S. in the state of Texas, if that matters any.

Have any of you ever had an online crush?  I did once and felt like a complete idiot.  I had after all gone a little too long without a real boyfriend because my last love had died from a seizure.  I was just ending a friendship as well that had recently turned into a sexual relationship which I never should have let happen, but I let my sexual appetite get the best of me.   I was not in love so I broke it off with him.  So, I went out and got myself a real boyfriend right away, someone that I have always had love in my heart for but could never be with because he is American Indian and his family wants him to be with an American Indian woman.  Ever since the man I love died, everything I do seems wrong when it comes to relationships with men.  But being with the man I am with now does not feel wrong to me or him, only to his family.  Should I be that selfish?  Family is so important, but so is the relationship between a man and a woman.  This man I am with now, who is going against his family's wishes, is older, about 45, and completely capable of making his own decisions.  Do you think I am wrong to date him?

 My 39 year old sister went back to college this fall to finish a bachelor's degree she started almost 20 years ago.  She's doing fine academically, but she tells me it's a terrible experience because she feels so old, out-of-touch and alienated with all the younger students.  

So, TQC - any words of advice I could pass along to help make this easier for her?  For those of you in college, how do you feel about "older" students?  What kinds of things would make you more open to becoming "friends" with these people?   What sort of things should she avoid doing?

(She's basically a very shy, quiet person...so I don't think she's one of those adult learners that has opinions on everything and thinks, because she has life experience, that she should express them.)

WHY WON'T THIS TURN OFF??? HOW ARE YOU MEANT TO TURN IT OFF??

evil toy of DOOMCollapse )

When I bought it at an op shop a week ago, it didn't work. I thought the batteries were dead, but that was ok, it was only $1 and would make a nice chew toy for my daughter. I finally remembered to wash it today, so that I could give it to her to play with. WELL. After I put it into the sink, it started to work! And now the damn thing won't shut up! Pushing the button doesn't do anything, and it's been sitting in that sink of water for about an hour and a half now, singing away quite loudly still. Short of breaking the control part and just leaving the keys on the ring, how the hell is it meant to shut up???

What's the worst toy you've had or given someone? One that didn't do what it was meant to, or did something it shouldn't have?

How do I make the bad music go away?!

EDIT Now with the correct video! I have no idea how this got there! I didn't do it and have never seen that before!

EDIT AGAIN I left it in the sink for about an hour and a half, and it was singing merrily the whole time. I tried to unscrew the bit that held the ring together but couldn't, so I got out my hammer and started belting it, with the intent of breaking it into pieces! but it made it stop! then I risked all by pushing the button again, and it played - then stopped at the end like it was meant to! YAY!

New question - when did belting something with a hammer feel good for you?

Typically, I got through undergrad writing papers the night before. I usually got A's and B's on them. I work better under pressure I guess. To be quite honest, I sort of enjoy writing research papers.

If you had to describe the following cities in one word (each), which word would you use?

I only hear the word "hot" to describe a generally attractive female. Do you think that a 20 year old guy saying a girl is hot should be regarded as a similar compliment to an older adult saying someone is pretty?

b-They don't LISTEN to their voicemails.
c-They have no voicemail, only caller ID.

I got a text message saying, "Happy Anniversary" on my one year wedding anniversary.

The text was from an ex-boyfriend of mine. We're not friends, but on speaking terms, I guess...maybe once every three months...and mostly business related (he hosts a website I work on). We broke up over a year before I met my husband and my husband and I dated for almost 3 years before getting married.

Is that just a little bit weird???

ETA: My husband is now deployed and I've been getting more phone calls/e-mails (than normal) from the ex.

my statistics, let me show you them [Oct. 11th, 2007|02:14 pm]
The Question Club

[kolden]
A study released last week by the Barna Group, a reputable Evangelical research and polling firm, found that under-30s -- both Christian and non-Christian -- are strikingly more critical of Christianity than their peers were just a decade ago. According to the summary report, Barna pollster David Kinnaman found that the opinions of non-Christians, in particular, had slid like a rock in that time frame. Ten years ago, "the vast majority" of non-Christians had generally favorable views of Christianity. Now, that number stands at just 16%. When asked specifically about Evangelicals, the number are even worse: only 3% of non-Christian Millennials have positive associations with Evangelicals. Among the Boomers, it's eight times higher.


so this leads me to the question, tqc: do you get as annoyed as i do when people mix "numbers" and "words descriptive of numbers" in order to make statistics sound more exaggerated than they are?

Is there something you enjoy that you're ashamed to mention because you're afraid somebody will call you a racist?

I love listening to Mickey Katz and Stan Boreson. So I must be an anti semite who yust goes nuts at Christmas.

EDITED TO ADD: Mickey Katz did a lot of parodies of pop records in the 50s in Klezmer style, with a lot of Yiddish slang and puns. (He did a parody of the song "Kiss of Fire" called "Kiss of Meyer".) Stan Boreson did a similar thing, but in a Scandahoovian style. He cut "I Yust Go Nuts At Christmas", which we listen to every Xmas time.

I'm sure everyone knows or has met that person who makes you cringe every time you're around them.  Their character is just naturally abrasive or utterly annoying.  The worst part is that they don't seem to have a clue that they affect others in this manner. 

This got me to think.

1) Have you ever had a fleeting moment where you wonder if you might be one of those people?
2) If so, what were the circumstances?
3) Is there no way that those people don't realize that that's how they are?
4) If so, do you think they just choose to ignore that fact? 
and lastly,
5) Do you actually think you are one of those people?

I’m getting my wisdom teeth taken out next Thursday and I’m kind of nervous about it. =/

My doctor told me that I’m in a “higher risk group” because I waited sooo long to have them taken out (I’m 21 btw) and that I have a small jaw. The chance of nerve damage seems pretty small, but I’m still a little uneasy.

The store i work at part time has this policy- if you buy something and it goes on sale within 7 days, you can bring your receipt back to the store and they refund you the difference. 
I had a discussion with another employee about it. I don't know why some stores have this policy, i figure that sale prices are for people who either planned ahead by reading the flyer or got lucky and happened to find something they needed on sale. What's the point of having a one week sale if you're going to extend it like that? It's not the store's problem if you bought it a week before.
My co worker mentioned that if they didn't do this, people would bitch about it so much that allowing these refunds probably saves the company a lot of time in customer service. And people bitch about it anyway..."I bought this 3 weeks ago and now it's on sale!!!WTF!! :( "
Does this policy make sense to you? Do you feel this is a good/fair and logical policy?

so, the questions:

2. if yes, if they offered you the job did you recieve the pay rate you asked for?

3. would you accept a job if they offered you something lower than what you asked for?

4. how likely is it that a company would drop it's normal pay rate for someone who had requested a minimum rate that is less than the company was originally planning to pay someone in that position? do you think they'd really screw me over like that?

5. out of curiosity, any idea of what the hiring rate tends to be for low-level retail employees (cashiers and such) in your area? how about shift leaders or managers? (obviously this could be hard to know. i don't think a lot of stores put their starting rate on signs in the window anymore.)

I think about him often, I dont go into depressive states about it or anything but certain thigns will set me off....last night I had a dream about him, we were sitting in a cafe just talking adn when I woke up I just started bawling.

Having not ever been to his grave, do you think if I paid a visit it may help me let go?

Care to post a picture of your bunny? Have any funny tales of rabbit parenthood to share?

I had a bunny ages ago (Gomaz) that I was convinced was the second coming of Jesus (he had black spots on his back in the shape of a cross, and I was an impressionable 9 year old), so I wrote to the Pope. But Pope never responded.

Anyway, reason for bunny questions: I really want a bunny lately! But, until I get a stable job and place of my own I need to satiate my bunny yearnings by living vicariously through rabbits of others.

The Road Not Taken [Oct. 11th, 2007|07:36 pm]
The Question Club

[iluq]
This question has no relation to anything I've done in school in the last four years.

How do you interpret Robert Frost's poem "The Road Not Taken"?

My freshman composition professor told us that this poem is one of the most misanalyzed poems ever written. It is not about what it appears to be, taking a metaphorical path less traveled, but simply about making a choice that is no different from any other choices. Lots of people interpret it to mean that the speaker took the less popular route in life but when you read into the poem you see that he says the paths are worn "about the same" and the last two lines can be interpreted as ironic, or just as a statement of fact - "that has made all the difference" is just a vague statement of the outcome, not one that glorifies anyone who chooses his particular path.

And here I present to you the stupidest discussion page on this poem I have ever come across.

i'm trying to like wine, as we are poor and alcohol numbs the pain.

my husband works at trader joe's, and therefore gets a deep discount on the two buck chuck.

i'm currently drinking a glass of shaw sauvingnon blanc, and rather enjoying it--the first time i've really liked wine and not thought it just smelled like mold and tasted like burning.

what's your favorite wine?

how accurate is this: http://www.howtodothings.com/hobbies/a3073-how-to-drink-wine.html on the proper way to drink wine?

what external factors (type of glass, chill factor, etc) affect the way wine tastes the most?

I'm working on a research project for my Language Disorders in Children class. Everyone in the class was assigned a language and what we have to do is create a 2-3 page tip sheet for a speech therapist going into the home of a family who speaks that language. I was assigned South American Spanish. Do any of you have firsthand knowledge of the culture associated with South American Spanish speaking countries? For instance, who is usually the head of the household? Do you have to take your shoes off when you enter their home?-- things of that nature. Basically anything the speech therapist would need to know in order not to disrespect any member of the family.

TIA.

According to a commercial I just saw (I'm in Brisbane, Australia) 1 in 8 people have genital herpes.

This means that at my place of work, at least one person in my team, and at least 2 in each of several other teams have genital herpes.

It's such a strange thing to fathom just because I don't think about people as having STIs.

1.  Do you have genital herpes or know someone who does?
2. How do you deal with telling potential partners, or how does the person you know deal with it?
3. Has it interfered with your or his/her ability to have a fulfilling love life or find relationships?
4. How did you or he/she find out?

My answersCollapse )

What's the weirdest dream you've had in recent...memory(?)

My most recent was earlier today. I was in a kitchen, not my house or apartment. And Jesus was a ghost who was out killing people who had cancer. I managed to lure him into the kitchen, where I trapped him in a microwave and put a small sign that said "Do Not Touch" over the buttons.

Then Lisa Simpson came in and tried to convince me that we should persuade Jesus to work with us in an effort to not KILL the people with cancer, but cure cancer to make the world a better place. I then told Lisa that she was trying to hard to be a good person and, thus, was covering up something major she did in her past.

Then I woke up.

Addendum:
Is there some kind of hidden meaning in that?

Backstory:

About a month ago, someone posted in womenhealth about her troubles with BO.

subarashiine responds with "Try using a natural deodorant"

Now, I can relate to the OP's troubles - I am always paranoid that I can smell BO under my arms. Earlier this year, I tried switching to natural deodorants just because I wanted to try to be healthier, but I tried lots of different brands and kinds (dry and wet alike) and they were full of mega stinky sweaty FAIL.

Anyway, given this, it really annoyed the crap out of me that this chick's suggestion was "try using a natural deodorant" when the only people I know who successfully use them are ones who don't have pungent BO when they don't use any deodorant at all.

ANYWAY today guess what I found in womenhealth?

That's right - subarashiine has tried 3 natural deodorants in the past couple of months and they don't work and she smells

TQC, I am so tempted to like, I don't know, EXPOSE this person for being an idiot. Or whatever it's called when someone gives advice that they KNOW is full of stinky fail. But that's mean.

1. So instead, what should I do?

2. Why would you tell someone to do something for a problem that you KNOW doesn't work, and potentially sentence that person to a loss of $$ and smelling like hell for a day?

3. Am I right to be so annoyed by this?

4. Is it weird that I even remembered the original post, that it was the same girl, and then took the time to look for the original post?

5. How can you get rid of moths?

6. How can I get mosquito bites to stop itching?

7. I live in Brisbane and I like cheap things. Where can I buy some coasters? We need coasters.

8. Is there such a thing as posting too many questions in one TQC post?

Dear TQC,

The other night I went to bed with a shirt on and some underwear. I woke up the next morning with the underwear but no shirt. WTF happened to my shirt, who took it off?? Was it my room mates? Why would they do something like that? Did someone come into my room and rape me when I was sleeping? But if that were the case it would be more likely for my underwear to be missing.

After a bit of thinking, I could vaguely recollect taking off my shirt while I was half asleep. But I couldn't remember why. So what do you think, TQC? What reason could I have for taking off my shirt while I'm half asleep when I had in the room with me two room mates who don't want to see my boobs?

This former friend of mine thinks he's Carlos Mencia (i.e. thinks being racist makes him edgy and funny), except that he's white. I'm all for political incorrectness, but there's a line. We don't really associate with him anymore because of his antics. Would it be wrong to draw a Hitler mustache on him while he's sleeping, and maybe a swastika on his forehead?

Backstory... The town where I live has a bit of space between properties so utility people can get to the utiliy boxes. You can't build anything on this space, including fences. This makes closing off a yard pretty difficult. We have a short brick wall as far back as we can have it, and inside that is our dog run (I guess some people refer to them as kennels). Our dog run is made of a wrought iron fence, and we have a dog house in the very back of it. Anyway, the woman who lives behind us continually feeds our dogs. She has to do a bit of work to get to them, with the wall, fence, and dog house. We've asked her many many times to stop, but she keeps feeding them. We've had dogs die from this before, so although we know she's just an old lady with good thoughts, we want her to stop.

1. What would you do if you had a neighbor coming onto your property and feeding your animals?

2. What if they locked your cat in their garage because they didn't think it was supposed to be outside? Or if they seemed to think your cat was a stray, and pet, feed, and name it?

3. Do you have any interesting neighbor stories?
We've had neighbors write eachother death threats. Jeez.

OK, so I'm going on my first ever vacation in 2 weeks. A week long Caribbean cruise.  Being as I've never really gone anywhere before (I live near Vancouver- I've been to Edmonton and Seattle. Once each, more than a decade ago.  Oh, and I'm 29.... yes, I realize that's really really sad), and so never really had to pack (especially not for a week), I'm freaking out.  Plus, I have an 11 year old to worry about- he ALWAYS forgets stuff.  Like underwear.

So, my friends, what is it that you always seem to miss when you're packing for a trip? 

I'm pretty sure I have the basics, and to save trouble in the airport, I'm buying most of my toiletries when I get there.  I have the camera, a memory card, sunglasses, blow dryer (does anyone know if most cheap-o staterooms on Carnival cruises have blow dryers or anything in them?).  I'm not really too worried clothes wise, though if you want to tell us what you'd bring on a trip like this, be my guest!  But really, what I want to know is what sort of things do you never think of to bring until you're on the beach/in your hotel room/whatever people do on vacation?
