I work at a fast food joint (specifically, Raising Cane's Fried Chicken) and all of my work clothes REEK.
I work counter sometimes kitchen others and I often close/open the store. I have some plain cotton work t-shirts (they just have the logo and are normal machine wash) and we wear jeans.... Well, after a few shifts I realized the stink wasn't coming out of my clothes, especially my jeans (which now means that I have four pairs of jeans and a pair of khakis that I don't wear except to work and to get messy in because they permanently smell like grease and filth...) Its not really a problem for just wearing the stuff to work because everything smells like fried chicken anyway so it's cool, whatever... but I want to reclaim my jeans! And I'm afraid the smell is going to transfer to my other clothes! D: I already wash them separately on Heavy Duty but they still reek.
My question is, then: How do you get the smell of fast food out of your cotton/denim clothes?
I am looking for stores that sell awesome video game T-shirts. (I mean shirts that are actually awesome, not stupid "witty" shirts with dumb phrases on them. This probably rules out Hot Topic.) I know there are online stores that sell such shirts, but I want to go in person and try things on. What sorts of stores would sell such a thing?
What's the Spanish song where he's all like KAWJSHDKLHJDFKLHDFKLHJF? And there's a ghetto music video with girls in ugly clothes shaking their booties. I have no idea what he's saying, but he sounds retarded and sings really fast. DO YOU KNOW WHAT SONG THIS IS???
when you are creating (painting, drawing, digital art, writing, etc.) do you prefer to work in the day or at night? do you prefer your workspace to be lit with natural sunlight, or would you rather have incandescent/fluorescent lighting?
i ask because: besides art classes in the days, i can only create at night because i cannot stand natural sunlight lighting my drawings. it bothers me.
to everyone: what borderline ocd quirks do you have about little things that don't actually matter, but are SO IMPORTANT and sometimes inconvenient for you? i have to check if my bedroom door is closed before i will be able to leave the house comfortably, but i am also forgetful and can never remember if i have closed the door, or if i have checked if i have closed the door. many mornings, i go back and check the door about three or four times. :/
Hypothetical situation. You're getting your morning coffee. You pick up a newspaper, then get a coffee and a doughnut from the counter. You pay, then walk down to the bus stop. You have five minutes before the bus comes. It's cold out, there is a slight drizzle, the lights of the city in the distance shimmer and glow. You realize that you'd put the paper under your arm, and they didn't see it so didn't charge you for it. Which do you do? * Go back and pay, and risk missing your bus * Hell, it was only 50 cents.
Do you enjoy drinking tea? What is your favorite kind of tea? How do you take your tea?
my answers: 1. Yes, I drink about six twenty-four ounce cups of hot tea a day. 2. chinese gunpowder green tea, orange sanguine, any breakfast tea and peppermint. 3. I prefer very hot water with no sweetner. If I want something sweet I eat fruit with the tea. Sometimes I use milk or soy if I want something creamy.
9:09 PM 1/8/08 · So, about a week or so back a bunch of people were going quite a bit nuts about new episodes of Futurama being on. I'm as much a fan as anybody else of this show but this was news to me. It still kinda is because I can't seem to figure out when they come on.
It's hard to search for something that comes on with old episodes multiple days of any given week.
I have decided that the simplest way to seek out the new episodes of Futurama is by threatening all of you. If I don't find out when the new ones are on I'm going to go postal. sure, doesn't seem like much of a threat, right? Why should it bother you if I go on a killing spree where I work? Well, that's the trick! I'm going to go postal at all of the places you work.
Think I can't huh? Don't answer this question and watch the chaos erupt!
There are about six people in my office. We have all been here for an hour and half and already cleaned out four pots of coffee. Does that sound excessive? My office regularly drinks about twenty pots in an eight hour period. We also clear out eight gallons of water every other day (just drinking water not using it to make coffee). Who is drinking all this water? Is it me?
If I got a tattoo in this spot (smaller and simpler than the tattoo pictured), would it be affected if I ever got pregnant? Granted, I don't intend to get pregnant for a long time, but... you know... the tattoo will still be there.
We got my friend a kitten for his birthday in September. He named it Jäger, after the alcohol. For Christmas I want to get his kitten a tag, since she doesn't have one yet. I don't think the machine has the "ä" character though (or maybe it does?), so would the more correct spelling be Jager or Jaeger? Or something else?
Has anyone in here ever gotten pregnant while in college (specifically within your first two years)? How did that turn out for you? What did you do about it (if you don't mind answering)? For those who kept the baby, did you continue with school (even putting it on hold for a semester or two), or drop out?
Why is it that some people photograph better than others? Obviously, it's not always because they're good-looking. Many plain people photograph well while others, who look great in person, do not. What is it that makes someone photogenic?
Do your pierced ears ever get infected? How do you care for an infected pierced ear?
My ears have been pierced since I was three months old. Over a decade later they randomly become infected. I don’t ever wear earrings so I am not sure what the problem is. Even though I clean my ears daily my left piercing sometimes has fluid and other stuff lodge inside (the holes are normal size). What should I do? When the piercing gets infected it takes over a month for it to heal.
What's a good way for someone to relieve aggression, especially when they want to break stuff, and inflict much violence on inanimate objects, without hurting someone, themselves, or like, getting neighbors to call the police?
I used to be friends with someone. Pete was my best friend. Pete said he fell for me and was in love with me. I never felt the same and I told him this (nicely, I wasn't mean or anything) Now, for various reasons I told him I didn't want to be friends with him. I didn't throw abuse and call him names, slag him off or anything.
He just messaged me with lots of abuse. Basically bringing me down. Said I was selfish, self centred, miserable. A whole load of things that aren't true. And although I know he's not worth crying over and I should suck it up rather than sit here almost in tears because someones calling me names, I feel like crap.
This 'man' is 29. Shouldn't he be past this stage?
Make me feel better?
Give me some nice revenge stories (that I wouldn't go through with, but the thought is nice and will make me feel better)
Hey. My hair is naturally really dark blonde, almost light brown. I want to get highlights tomorrow, but DONT want platinum highlights (the only kind i've ever had). For the past year, I've been dying my hair a medium-dark brown, and am tired of how mousy it looks when it fades (it's demi-permanent). I want osmething that's a little more natural looking (at least color-wise), but my natural hair color is GROSS.
Do any of you have pictures of you with dark brown/light blonde hair that's been highlighted?? So that I can take it to the salon? lol. I can't find much on google images cause I dont really know how to explain what I want. ;)
I'm 20 and whenever I get my period I always give a heartfelt prayer of thanks, even though I'm still a virgin. TQC, is this as incredibly weird as I think it is? TQC female, do you ever worry about being pregs even if there is no way in hell you could be?s
Even though I'm really really NOT ready (financially, emotionally, etc.) to be a mother I was kinda disappointed this morning with "the painters came" (if you know that reference I will love you forever)
What's the most current Pokemon game? I feel like every time I turn around, there's a new one and my best friend loves them. She only has the old ones, and I want to buy her one of the new ones. Did you love Pokemon as a kid? Be honest - do you still?
What's the most current Final Fantasy game? Is there a few one coming out?
What is the strangest thing you have in your vehicle right now?
- I currently have some fishing poles and a bag of reels and tackle in my trunk currently. I don't know what else to do with them. My Dad gave them to me randomly last Sunday even though neither me nor my husband ever fish. LOL.
If you are pregnant out of wedlock and the father does not want you to have the child; should he still pay? Please explain your answer.
Are the mexicans still mad at me?
Why you get mad at someone on the internet?
Do you think those Mexicans that stand at the corner of the street waiting for someone to pick them up would do almost anything? If I brought six of them back to my place and told them there is some plumbing to be done and then it turns out I just want a gangbang, do you think the majority would do it? How about if I weighed 400lbs?
I just got a new longboard and well lets face it I suck on it so far, I have been practicing so I don't look like a complete goof when I ride it in from of 60,000 ASU students, but I can't seem to get the handle on it
Do you have anything that just doesn't come as naturally to you as it does to some people?
There is a temp where I work who has lost a noticeable amount of weight. She looked like she weighed in the two hundred pound range and now looks around a hundred and fifty. All this weight was lost within a month and half span.
Would you look at this person differently; in a negative or positive light? Would you mention anything to this person? Would you do anything or just watch the weight melt off?
If you were to write a post each day with a theme that you use each week. Like every Friday you write about 5 things. (friday 5) and Wednesdays were way back Wednesday. What would you use for the rest of the week?
1) I wear earplugs to sleep(thanks, snoring boyfriend). A good amount of the time, when I wake up and pull them out, I get a terrible ear ache in my outer ear canal. I pull them out slowly and gently, so it's not like I'm ripping them out & creating suction. Why does this happen?
2) I shower at night because I'm terrible at getting anything done first thing in the morning. This is fine, except my hair usually ends up very limp and static-y after I brush it in the morning. It's nice and voluminous the night before. How can I try to preserve my hair a little better for the next day?
3) I went into work yesterday thinking I was scheduled, but I wasn't, haha. Have you ever done that? eta: did you end up staying?
Do you get easily worked up over stuff on the internet? If so, why?
I do. I swear I'm a reasonable person IRL, but as soon as I click on the Firefox icon, it's like I drink a can of Instabitch.
For me it's whiners/beggars. If I'm ever playing a game online, be it some MMORPG or even a silly virtual pet site, and I somehow get successful, and others complain, I laugh heartlessly in their faces. Well... usernames. Icons. Avatars. Whatever.
But I still don't know why I'm so easily angered around here...
Let's say that you have a really good friend who moved a few states away who is going through a horrific time. The two of you communicate with IM, email, and phone. She wants all of this to be kept confidential. Your S.O thinks you're keeping something from him and thinks you're cheating on him. He wants to see what you're writing, but you don't want to betray your friend's confidence. What do you do?
Who do you miss? I miss my best friend more than anything. ;_;
What is something funny you'd do with your childhood best friend? We'd make up our own talk shows and tape record them. ^_^ And we'd buy different sodas and mix them up in Dixie cups and expect people to buy them from us. Nasty concotions like Surge and Cream Soda lol.
Do you know what the hell a party crew is? Can you please explain this nonsense?!
A few minutes ago I decided not to answer a private call on cell phone. The call went to voice mail. Message in high-pitch-voice: "Hi you won a trip to nipple-apolis-land, you and your husband have a nice trip" [i'm still laughing]
Every so often when I open up my WinAmp, my playlist is gone and is replaced with a temporary file. The file is usually listed as some sort of movie file, but is always unplayable. Today it happened again and it was named NUDEBEACHsomethingsomething and was an unplayable clip that said it was 10 seconds long.
I know it's not another member of the household doing this.
Is this some kind of virus or spyware causing this? How do I prevent it? I regularly scan my computer with Ad-Aware and SpyBot and AVG.
In the movie Les Choristes/ The Chorus (a french film), what's the song that Mohrange is singing when he's hanging sheets up, towards the beginning of the movie? I think it's a christmas song, but I'm not sure..
Our bathtub is not draining. Drano didn't do anything. The neighbor's suggestion of bleach didn't do anything. So now there's about 3 inches of water in the bathtub, along with Drano and bleach. The switch to drain or not to drain does nothing.
On top of that, when I turn the bathroom sink faucet on for longer than 5 seconds, water drains out of the sink, but also into the bathtub through the drain flip switch...and it's gray/dirty when it does so.
Is this a blocked pipe? I'm now afraid to flush the toilet or brush my teeth in the bathroom! The kitchen sink/drain/disposal is fine. I went around and asked, and none of our neighbors are having plumbing problems.
Is there anything we can try before calling the landlord in the morning and hoping they can send a plumber in the afternoon?
[I did think of a fringe benefit of a gym membership though - a place to shower when you can't use your bathroom!]
Me: Music Workshop Caller: Hi, is this Baltimore's best? Me: Um, no. This is the Music Workshop. Caller: Oh... well, what kind of stuff do you do there? Me: Lessons - vocal, piano, drums, guitar, bass, stuff like that. Caller: Oh, so you're not an escort service? Me: Uhhhhh... no. Sorry, you have the wrong number.
My question - what is the weirdest thing that anyone has ever said to you over the phone?
Due to poor judgment, it was decided that I am in charge of getting a cake for a birthday party on Saturday. What're some funny/ridiculous things I can get written on it? Nothing crude, please. I was thinking of getting "expires 01/11/08" (the day before the party). More ideas!
If you are in a "committed" relationship and your SO confesses to cheating on you "just once" in a "weak moment" and vows "never, ever, ever again", would/could you forgive him/her and stay in the relationship? *I have a hard time forgetting and forgiving. I don't think I could continue being committed to the relationship.
Why do people cheat? *I think it has something to do with how the cheater feels about him/herself. Not necessarily how they feel about the person they cheated on.
Would you blame yourself if your SO cheated on you? *I'd do a bit of self-examination but in the end I'd figure it was his problem, not mine.
Ok, so I have some pie crust leftover, love chocolate and also have peanut butter, vanilla pudding, and the usual 'cooking supplies' (sugar, eggs, etc).
Anyone know any good recipes I could use to make something of all this? If you can scale down the ingredients to a one person serving, that's great, if not, no worries I'll figure it out.
EDIT: Ok, so went for what most people suggested - making the pudding, then combining melted chocolate/peanut butter into it and throwing the whole thing over the baked crust. YUMMMMM. Thanks so much for the obvious but overlooked suggestion! I'm getting chocolatey-peanut overload as we speak. This may just be food heaven.
How can I get my cat to keep his collar on? The other two love theirs and have no problem with them at all. He'll manage to get his off within a couple of hours of putting it on. I tried rewarding him when I put it on and he's good about it, but now he just sits like a good boy until I'm out of sight, and then takes it off. Any suggestions?
Why doesn't my boss want to tell me exactly when seasonal work is over? She said sometime in february, promise dto look up when, but still won't give me an exact date. Is she maybe thinking of keeping me? There's so many people working there that I doubt it, but I guess it's posible.
My hairstylist forces me to straighten my hair before I go in for highlights. (my hair is curly.) But, he's a jackass.
is this typical? my hairstylist has also turned into more of a douche and is starting to suck on top of that (i keep having to go back for fixes). So, tomorrow I'm going to a random place I found in the phone book.
Question: should I straighten my hair before I go get highlights tomorrow? I hate straightening my hair just to have them wash it again right after. Or is that just something my old stylist preferred due to his jackassyness?
My teacher told me I don't have the authority to say Wuthering Heights is a terrible book because I'm not a literary critic. I think she is full of shit - I am literate and capable of reading it, I did, and it was terrible. Do you think she is full of shit, or am I just douche who hates proper literature?
What constitutes a terrible book, in your opinion?
Do you like to read?
Is a book necessarily good because it is a classic? Do you enjoy "classics"?
What books do you personally think should be considered classics?
Edit: If you were a parent (or if you are a parent) what would you do/are you doing to promote a love of the written word in your child?
I've been using the Zukutou word meter as a page counter for my reading. It was meant for NaNoWriMo, but same difference for my purposes. It doesn't work for me now. I registered with the site and still nothing. Anybody know what gives? I type in my numbers, hit enter, and nothing happens.
I liked how pretty it looked. =/ If I can't use it any more, anybody know an equally nice and free counter of some kind? I've found a few word meters by googling, but they either don't look good or say "words" or "word meter" right on them, which I don't like for aesthetic purposes.
You have been selected by the Government for part of a secret, underground, possibly immoral and unconstitutional experiment in an effort to better increase the productivity of the American [if you aren't America, substitute your countries name--such as "Communism"] Military and its other institutions. During your stay in the underground bunkers, you have been established as one of the most promising prospects of the experiments; having developed at a rate of at least four times that of your "peers"--if such a word is even worth considering in these circumstances.
During the final parts of your training, the compound you are staying at is breeched and a man whose motives you cannot quickly discern assassinates the people who have been training you and providing you with copious amounts of chemicals and porn and whatever else you might happen to want--pie, for instance. The man begins to tell you, in typical fashion, that you were going to be used by the Government to be a type of Super Assassin. You would be sent into various countries to eliminate "threats" (he even does the air quotes) that are stationed in those countries. By the end of the discussion, your previously zealous attitude for your situation has become rattled and you are faced with a choice:
Do you: 1- Accept the man's option to join with him, however long that the partnership may last, to expose the "truth" of this to the world--consequences be damned? 2- Punch the guy in the face, put on a cape, and bang reporter ladies/dudes/houseplants? 3- Punch the guy in the face, join the military, and continue your mission, knowing that you're doing the best thing you can do? 4- Kill the man in a fire-y explosion of superpowers, and take over the world? 5- Do your best to forget this incident via drugs, alcohol, and enough prostitute to choke and elephant? 6- MY PARENTS ARE DEAAAAAAAAAD.
1. to those of you that watch ER, or watched one of the previous 2349857934 seasons - - do you think this might be the last season? my dad thinks so, because they're bringing the people back that were on and left the show years ago.
2. what's your favorite fruit?
3. how old are you? do you think your age fits you? for example, i sometimes feel the same age as the residents at the nursing home i work at, and then sometimes like a 7 year old girl that laughs at fart jokes. i'm 23.
I am working on cover letters for internships and several contacts are females. All of them just have a first and last name, and no Mrs., Ms., Miss, etc. When starting the letter, I can't just say "Dear Jane Doe", can I? Or should I put "Dear Mrs. Doe" and hope it's correct? I feel like I shouldn't be addressing them by a first name.
I have an Alex. MALE OR FEMALE??? Now what do I do?
Is there any way to delete SOME websites from your history on Safari? I want to clear a few websites without resetting my entire history. I tried Googling and going to Safari Help but all I got was instructions on how to clear my whole history.
I need some help with swimwear, particularly from other females who are well-endowed up top. I like halters best, but have a hard time finding one that keeps everything in & up. The best suit I ever had, surprisingly, was from Aeropostale but their selection doesn't seem so great this time of year.
So just a few questions --
1. Where can I buy good swimwear this time of year? Either online/in stores is fine.. 2. Have you had any experiences with Victoria's Secret swimwear?
Anyone else east super crappy at night? I can do great during the day, eating healthy and all that. Come nighttime I start eating crappy. I just ate three Krispy Kreme donuts and chocolate pudding because I'm just a genius like that. My willpower is so good during the day. I don't know why it changes. I'd love to not have that junky food around but I live at home and no one in my family is over weight so they don't really care about what they eat. : (
How do you motivate yourself to eat healthier and/or exercise more? How do you curb your cravings for food like cake, pie, cookies, etc?
