 Do insurance companies usually cover breast reductions? i'm reaching a breaking point with these things. I actually have a heat rash right now because I went up another size and now my bras are too tight. if I put baby powder or something between my boobs will it stop them from rubbing together like that? And is there a single guy in here who would actually sympathize with a woman who doesn't want huge boobs? my boyfriend doesn't see the problem and it's very frustrating to try and explain it to him all the time.

Perverted.

The word "perverted" -- do you personally interpret it with a positive, neutral, or negative connotation?




I personally interpret it as a negative idea, an extreme, distateful, offensive level of sexual interest. My friend, on the other hand, interprets being perverted to me just means having a healthy sexual appetite.

And you?

HALP TCQ!

I have regular pierced ears. A friend of mine gave me a pair of earrings from Peru that are made of wood, and the sticks that go through my ears were a little big for me.

One of the sticks was tapered, so I used it to slowly stretch the holes to big enough for the sticks because I love these earrings. This was over the course of a few days.

Now one of my pierces is bleeding. The other one is fine, doesn't hurt a bit.

Is there anything I should do about the bleeding?

There's something hanging out in my garage, TQC.

Is it my ex-boyfriend or a cat?

ETA: Also, should I get off my lazy ass and go open the garage door to see what comes running out?


It was my puppy! :( My mom went and took the trash outside or something and my puppy followed her, but didn't make it inside. My mom must've thought she's been sleeping with me (I thought she was in bed with my mom) so neither of us thought she was missing. Oh, she'd been out there for hours. Poor thing, she's getting lots of cuddles now.

I'm really glad it wasn't the ex-boyfriend though, tbh.

I was watching the news just now while getting dressed for work and there was as story on there about Disney. It appears they made a cartoon/movie of the story of the ten commandments and are being pressured to keep the word 'GOD' out of the advertisements. I personally think that is stupid considering the subject of the movie.My understanding was the commandments given to Moses by God according to the Christian bible, am I right? If it were the telling of another religious story from a different faith I wouldn't be offended if they used the name of their deity.

Do you think it is stupid for Disney to be pressured to keep the word 'GOD' out of the movie ad?
Would you be offended if they used this word?
Would you be offended if it were a movie about another religion and they used the name of their God?

Sick day....

I've got a sick toddler today, and I too can't be far from a bathroom. So I called into work sick. I've got the time, so it shouldn't be an issue, right? Heck, last week my boss was getting on me about how I never take any time off!!

I called my office and told my boss that I've got a sick kid (didn't discover that I was suffering the same issue until after I got off of the phone with her) and that I wouldn't be able to make it into the office today.

I was getting my son out of his high chair and my office called my cell once already (30 minutes into my usual "shift"). I couldn't get to the phone in time, and they didn't leave a voicemail.

Should I answer calls from the office today? Or should I let them go to voicemail? I mean, is it really a sick day/day off if I'm on the phone with the office all day??

The nearest major airport to me is three hours away. There is an airport that's only 45 minutes away, but it's just a teensy little regional airport so flights there are really super expensive.

The three hour drive would be okay... except I don't have a car. I already have plans for a trip coming up in a few weeks, and I need to make travel arrangements.

I think I have bronchitis again...It started off as a cold, but now my chest is tight, and ever since I woke up, I've coughing up this green mucus. Am I being paranoid? This is my third time in a year getting it.

 There is a small problem: I don't have money for a doctor's appointment, or for the antibiotics.
Will this go away on my own? Are there any herbal pills I can take? What has worked for you, when you were too poor to pay for your medical visits/antibiotics?

How do you make a resume for a blue collar type? 

Someone who is a dedicated worker but can't spell very well, hasn't graduated high school and has worked a printing press, at a parts store and the parts department of an automotive dealership.

I'm trying to put it together and I'm just a little perplexed, it's not as easy as I thought it might be. He's a great worker bee who has real potential to be a manager of sorts - in the blue collar industry, mind you. 

Anyone have any suggestions or examples?

 I just found out one of my friends is in jail. She had a warrant out on her for 2 months, plus last night she type in her LJ that she wants to end it, so LJ called the cops.  I knew that her past would catch up with her, but I still for awful and but also relieved(her past includes mental health issues and drugs). I seriously hope that this finally gets her the help she needs and gets her life in order. I know that makes me a bad friend. Anyways, what I wanted to ask is:

When she is finally out and can call me, what should I say to her?

Time Travel hypothetical

This is completely hypothetical and a bit wordy, but interesting.

Let's say that this takes place 50 years into the future. You're 18, about to graduate high school. You have a scholarship waiting for you at a good college, a beloved SO that you care about very much, and are generally happy in life. One day, you're driving, and you take your eyes off the road ever briefly to change the CD or dial a phone number or whatever, and you don't see the person in the road. Bump. You're tried with manslaughter, and even though you throw yourself at the mercy of the court, the prosecuting attorney manages to taint you as an unlikable character, and between the jury and the judge, you end up serving 7 years in prison. Prison was traumatizing and you had to do a lot of things you'd like to forget in order to survive. During your stay in county, your SO falls in love with someone else, your family generally regards you as a fuckup and of course, your scholarship is gone. Once you're out of prison, you seek therapy and without meaning to, you wind up with an addiction to painkillers. Seeking employment, the only thing you're qualified for is a graveyard shift, minimum wage, dead end job with no chance of promotion and with no health insurance. You're living at home and your parent/s regard your presence as an unwelcome intrusion into their lives that they have to endure, but you're not earning enough to find a place of your own. Life is in the crapper.

But this is the future, and there's time travel. You consider going back in time and warning your 18 year old self to keep their eyes on the fucking road the day of the 'incident', and maybe your life now would be perfect. You save up some money and you show up at the Time Travel Terminal (TTT) with a friend to make the jump into the past to correct your mistake. As you're about to enter the facility, your friend brings up the fact that you're about to alter the time continuum, and who knows what repercussions might occur if something changed 7 years ago? The present as you know it will probably be very different indeed, not only for you but everyone. Maybe the person you killed would go on to have a major impact on the world, good or bad. Maybe the person who took your place at university would make better use of the experience than you, maybe your SO is happier with the new person, maybe the child of the accident victim went on to overcome her grief and reach potential that previously she wouldn't have thought possible. Who knows. Then again, on the other hand, life since the accident has been one enormously long shitstorm for you and doesn't look to get any better.

1. Would you change the past to salvage your present, or leave things the way they are?

Elementary Music Teachers.

I just wonder this kind of stuff because I'm going into music. I may come up with another survey for secondary education, but it seems that the gap is bigger between elementary and secondary than middle and high school. And I want to see how it affected the rest of your musical career. Anyway:

13. Assuming that elementary music was your first musical education setting, how would you say your class/teacher influenced the role music plays in your life today?
14. Where are you from?


Sorry it's so lengthy, everyone. If you don't want to answer everything, at least just number 13. I'm not doing a project, but I do want to see how people react to their teachers. It seems that everyone I know who is really active in music had the same music teacher I did in elementary school, but there are some who were from neighboring schools who just didn't give a crap. I honestly believe that it's the fault of the first music teacher we had, and I want to know how it is outside of Harrison Township, MI.

1. I am stuck at school until 8:30 tonight. I had midterms this morning and didn't bring any textbooks, so I can't do any homework. From now until 4:30 (Pacific) I have a break that I don't usually have. What should I do with this free time? Serious, non serious, and online activities are always fun.

Edit: Why is it that LJ is so fascinating and fun when you actually have stuff to do, but so god-awful boring when you're actually looking to kill time?

2. My cousin, who was my best friend, ditched me on a vacation we had been planning for months because she didn't have the money to go. I saved up the entire time, so I went without her and now she doesn't seem to want to talk to me and is preoccupied by her new roommate/best friend. I feel left out. Advice??!!!

What should I do?

Edited to be less of a teal deer.

I've got two potential jobs for this summer.
Job A: Basically, I did any paperwork that needed doing. Lots of co-worker infighting, and the work itself was dead boring. But I got paid $11.10 an hour, and there's a high possibility of a raise for students who return for a third year. (This would be my third year.) Also, paid statutory holidays.
Job B: Doesn't list the pay or hours, but it's from a reliable source. Also, work experience for a field I'm interested in.

The deadline for applying for job B is January 31st, and I'd be contacted by the end of March. There isn't really an application deadline for job A, but I think applying in April for a job starting in May would be cutting things a bit too fine.

So, what should I do?

Help with a Nokia 2310

My mum got her first mobile last Christmas (the above mentioned Nokia 2310) and it has worked perfectly. Until now. Since Monday she has not received any text messages. Sending them is not a problem (my inbox had a lot of evidence). I've sent her three texts whilst we've been in the same room and she hasn't received them.

Any ideas? I've tried switching it on and off to see if it picks up another transmitter but that hasn't worked. She's with Vodaphone who usually have a really good coverage where we live.

x-posted because my mother is driving me nuts. Any help much appreciated :)

Edit: her inbox is empty.


Thanks to those who offered help. After a few frustrated calls to Vodafone and O2 (my network and who ended up solving the problem!) I discovered my mother had managed to add my name to the 'Screened' list. So she was receiving my texts but they weren't going in to her in box.

In keeping with the question theme, what drives you crazy about your parents? With me, it's my mother's ability to do strange things to technology.

So I'm Editor-In-Chief of my high school newspaper, and we're having a bit of a censorship issue.

We sent out an issue for publication and unfortunately the principal got to the newspapers before we did and threw all 3,000 issues in the trashcan [I hope he recycled them].
There was a story on the front News page that he didn't think was "appropriate" for our High School news paper to write about because it doesn't affect us, when in reality it does.

It was a well written, unbiased article on how the district is forcing all teachers to complie a list of ALL supplimental material (handouts, articles, movies, etc.) aside from the text book and have EACH [which could be hundreds] and have parents approve EVERYTHING, as well as the district. Teachers think this rule is ridiculous, and students should be aware of this new implemented rule.

As Editor-in-Chief I was forced to make a decision- either publish an explination in that blank space as to why the story wasn't published, leave it blank, or add a crappily last minute-written story.
I chose the latter after a very heated argument with the Principal.

But now it's time to really take action, so TQC, what do you suppose I do in the name of Freedom of Press and Freedom of Speech?

Should we contact every local newspaper?
Pass out flyers to the student body?
Something else?
Nothing?

dumb question, help a sista out

you know how when you call some people, they have it set so that you listen to a song instead of listening to the ringing. how can I set it so that my phone is like that? I don't mean changing the ring tone, I mean when people are waiting for me to answer my phone, I want them to hear music on their end of the line. help?

I'm trying to center my halloween costume around this one pair of gold-sequined shorts I bought last year, but I can't figure out what I could be. I already used them to be a bee last year so I am hoping for something different. Any ideas?

Shopping

1. Which of these upscale shopping districts have you been to? (EDIT: Which was your favorite?)

2. Do you, like me, have a difficult time shopping WITH someone? I find that I'm never in the same shopping "mood" as a friend. Sometimes, I want to just run in and run out. Sometimes I feel like spending hours in a store, trying stuff on and buying lots. And sometimes I feel like just window shopping. Because of this, I always feel like I'm annoying whoever I'm with so I mostly go alone.

3. Where do you buy most of your clothes?

4. Do you wear hats in the winter?

cannibal halloween costume

So, I wanna be a cannibal for halloween.

The only problem is I want to be a good looking/hot cannibal. Impossible task?

We're going to parties where every girl is going to be a slutty nurse/angel/devil/witch/cop/bee/school girl/etc.

And although I don't mind not being a slutty sheep, I also don't wanna be that one girl who doesn't look like she's supposed to be there.

Any suggestions on how to make a cannibal costume semi-cute? Thanks!

Music is a big thing with me, and my mom tends to show some interest in the same bands I do, too; at least, when I talk about various bands and singers with her, she knows who they are. My father...not so much.

My question to you, TQC, is this: do you try to involve your parents with your interests, hobbies, etc? Or, if you are a parent, do you try to show interest in things that your kids like? Why or why not?

This question has been asked about tattoos, but I don't think it has about this... do you tip someone for a piercing? I'm getting a little dinky nose piercing tomorrow.

Also, I have bangs that cover half of my forehead. I part my hair really far over, too. Do I get my nose piercing on the opposite side of the part or on the opposite side of my bangs?

Now that the weather has turned decidedly chillaaay around these parts, here is what I would like to know:

What is your never fail, "warm-the-cockles" beverage of choice?
And, if you're adding more of a kick to it, do you prefer a cream-based liqueur, like Bailey's, or a straight up spirit, like brandy, bourbon, something else?

Please, dear tqc, won't you share your cold weather drink favorites and recipes?

I heard this song today, it went something like "through the storm and the light, you stood by my side...maybe it's time to give something new a try", and it was by a male artist. I've tried googling the lyrics, but nothing has come up. Does anybody recognize the song? It was playing in Urban Outfitters (that's where I heard it), if that's any help. Thanks in advance.

okay, she's on a cell phone, I'm in my email, texting is occurring. She's freaking out (well, not really, but she's wondering) because she doesn't know if texting to an email costs extra money. she has unlimited text messages on her plan, which is through US cellular, if that's relevant. Anyone know if it does cost extra or not?

I just watched Evan Almighty (don't bother watching it if you haven't already, it's not that funny, surprise, surprise), and it had a funny after-ending. You know, when there's dancing, or they show behind-the-scenes stuff, etc? Anyway, my question is: What movie has your favorite after-ending?

ETA: Explain what happens if you can remember/can be bothered.


I quite enjoyed the 40-Year-Old Virgin, with the dancing to "Age Of Aquarius"

I let this guy pay me 15 bucks to write a 2 page essay for him.  I told my dad and he was like "Way to go!  That's an awesome way to study more and get paid!"  I did not expect that reaction.  What's your reaction to this?

If you broke up with someone, and started liking or dating someone with the same name, do you think it would be weird?  I've been talking to this cute guy, but he has the same name as my ex that I stupidly miss, and I think it's just STRANGE.

Should I go home for Thanksgiving?

I have Wednesday to Monday completely off, can get a round-trip bus ticket for $120, shouldn't have that much homework by that time, and would like to escape my apartment.

But I'd be coming back to school on November 26 and my family is coming to see me graduate on December 9 anyway. So I would see them a couple weeks later.

One of my friends claims I can go home with her but I don't know if the offer still stands.

Thanksgiving at my house absolutely blows and I will be moving home indefinitely anyway so it's not going to matter if I miss one more year (I never go home for Thanksgiving). But over Thanksgiving my upstairs neighbors will go absolutely *crazy* with noise so I'll be trapped here while all the stores are closed listening to them blast extremely loud music.

shitty reading

Some people read while on the toilet.....why? I've being wondering this since i was a child.
WTF bathroom readers! When/how do you have time to just sit there? What are you waiting for? Is there a long pause between when you sit down till when things start to happen? Or do you go into the washroom at random times during the day and just wait and see if anything comes out? Do you sit there after you're done, unwiped and reading?? I am so confused.
When i get the urge i just sit on the toilet, go almost instantly, wipe and i'm done. It takes less than a minute. Are you different?
WHEN AND WHY AND HOW DOES THE TIME TO READ OCCUR?
