Has anyone ever used a divorce kit as opposed to getting a lawyer? Would you recommend it, and if so which program did you use? I'm looking to get a divorce in Virginia, uncontested, no children, no house, and have been seperated for over a year now. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks TQC.
I don't of my email, because it's my name. Nor really any of my usernames, either, even if they're dumb (like severalmoose). I was 'the_gurl' and then 'sunnyskychick' when I first got the internet and I was like 10. I would be tired of those.
EDIT: I swear it's funny. They say, "poopie" like 6 times.

NOW this has gone on for about umm a month now. It's still there. I figured oh he's just piddle-farting around up there I don't care. BUT Mr. Raccoon started digging. He has dug a hole through my ceiling above my window (I have a one of those box windows where you can sit in it, but it has no support so you'd fall through and land on some concrete outside) He stuck his little furry paw through my ceiling.
I've taped one of those CD cases to the ceiling in hopes the plastic will persuade him to go elsewhere. HE'S STILL SCRATCHING AT IT. How long do you think it will last is my question? ;D

"Never brushing does not good hygiene make."
Improper grammar, or acceptable use of the English language?
For what it's worth "____ does not a _____ make" has been used in more situations than this one, before. IE: "One election does not a democracy make", for instance.
Googled proof it's common usage, so why are folks freaking out?

The Dining Services Department at Rochester Institute of Technology apologized Tuesday for a Martin Luther King Jr. Day menu some have criticized as insensitive. On Monday, the dining hall served traditional Southern food, including fried chicken, collard greens and cornbread, said university spokesman Bob Finnerty.
"After reviewing the situation, we are confident that there was no ill intent on the part of anyone involved," Finnerty said. "However, the menu did reflect an inappropriate stereotype on a day intended to be a day of reflection and commemoration of Dr. King's legacy."
The school has received some critical e-mails in response to the menu offerings, Finnerty said, though he did not know specifically how many people had complained.
The apology letter, addressed to the RIT community, expressed the Dining Services Department's regret for any offense caused by the menu.
Do you think the apology was warranted?

Fellows, a coworker/fellow student tells you he just got penis enlargement surgery, and he wants to know if it feels natural. "Give me your hand", he says as he unzips his fly. Do you test-feel his junk for authenticity?
Ladies and gents, your friend makes a face, and says "I think I'm getting a hemorrhoid. Can you check and tell me what you think it is? Give me your hand". Do you do some amateur proctology for your coworker's sake?

The only reason I ask, is because I'm interested in hearing the opinions of soda drinkers, I don't really care if you don't drink soda.

I was thinking saying it's a DDS appt cause then I wouldn't be feeling well? But not coming in cause you're numbed up is a lame excuse. His work is a little more formal where he puts in for a day off. My work is really informal-I come and go as I please and get paid the same way. So it's not like I ask for time off, just , "I won't be able to come in because of..."
What is a good excuse to say I won't be able to come in tomorrow?
Um, snarky answers are amusing, but good brainstorming would be appreciated! THANKS
edit: jesus you people are curious. we're filing bankruptcy but this really doesn't have anything to do with a made up excuse except if I just told my employer: "after being beat down, i'm not gonna feel like coming back in thx"

So, here is my dilemma:
I have blonde hair now, and have for the majority of my life. I really can't stand it lately, but I'm afraid to get rid of it.
Whenever I branch out from the blonde, I feel upset and want to go back blonde.
There are a lot of good reasons NOT to stay blonde.
Foremost, and most simply, the upkeep is killing my hair.
But I'm afraid no other colors would work well with my face/complexion/etc...
Under the cut, I have pictures of my hair, and hair that has inspired me to go a brown color, I'm just so afraid and need some advice.
(For the record, my roots are a honey/dirty blonde color. Too dark to blend in with platinum.)

Is this an acceptable thing for someone to do? It seems to me it is not, but maybe I am naive. I say if you're gonna be having sex while someone's in the next room, you either do it quietly, put music on yourself, or don't do it there. Plus now my leg hurts from sleeping on our stupid uncomfortable leather couches. So:
1. Is my stepsister's behavior okay in your opinion?
2. When's the last time you were kicked out of your own room?
3. If I were to stay in my room and put music on, what is the least sexy music I could have played? (I was thinking the theme to Elmo's World. Over and over and over.)
4. Should I have just told her to stfu because I was going to sleep? I lack guts, tqc, help me have guts. :(
5. What'd you have for breakfast? When's the last time you ate breakfast?
6. I had some whiskey yesterday. Did you know that whiskey ACTUALLY burns your stomach? I thought that fire-belly thing was an exaggeration. That shit hurt. Do you like whiskey? Is it supposed to do that? Did I not mix it with enough 7-Up? Am I going to die now?

3) I don't watch anything on television these days. Is there anything out there worth watching that I should give a chance or am I better off just not watching it?
I have always wanted the Snow Queen to be made into a brilliant Disney film. I also think the Tinderbox is a great story, but it would have to be "disneyfied" not to mention that its hero is really not a good guy. <--edit @ 2:03pm - I just re-read it. Actually he's got many redeeming qualities. Disney should tackle it!

You're dating someone new. You really like them. He or she invites you to their family BBQ so you can meet the relatives. Turns out, the person you're dating is related to George Bush. Not only that, but your SO is Dubya's favorite nephew/niece. As a show of support, George wants to be your friend, and invites you to a bible-reading session with him. Your SO is excited about the thought of you and Bush bonding, and exposes all of your sham excuses, so you'd be forced on your date with Dubya. What happens now?
You're in need of a car, and you only have a couple thousand to spend. You spy an ad in the paper where a 2007 BMW is being sold by its owner for only $2,000. When you call, you find out the car's tip-top, but the reason he's selling the car is because he feels that it's haunted. Some creepy things have happened to him when he drives, and he says that he's been having bad dreams since he bought it. The car only has 5,000 miles on it. Would you buy it?
You're at the DMV when you're approached by a complete stranger. "You don't know me, but I know about you. I have bad kidneys and need a donor. One day, I rifled through your doctor's office, looking for people who might be compatable with me, and your file has led me to believe that I'd have the best success with you. I want one of your kidneys. I will pay you $75,000 for it, but it has to be right this instant. This suitcase here is full of money. It's yours. Simply come with me to that motel room across the street, where my surgical team is awaiting, and they'll put you under and remove your kidney. You'll get patched back up and I'll personally drive you to your doctor afterwards for a checkup. You can have a friend monitor the surgery if you don't trust me, and step in anytime if he or she thinks that I'm doing something I shouldn't. I just need the kidney ASAP!" Do you walk with him to the motel room, give up one of your kidneys, and earn 75k for your troubles?
For some creepy Howard Stern-like radio show, they'll pay you $15,000 if you make out with your sibling for a minute. With tongue. Do you do it?

I bought some shoes yesterday and they were suuuuuper comfortable when I tried them on. They were as soft as a cloud and I was excited. I wore them around the mall for about a half hour yesterday because I had a blister on one of my big toes and my other shoes were applying pressure to it. I could feel the heel of the shoe scraping my heel, I just assumed I needed socks. I wore my new shoes again with the socks that I thought were designed for these shoes but the socks didn't cover my heels.
Do you have any suggestions to protect my heels?
