Divorce Kits?

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.

Do you ever get tired of your username/email/screenname/whatever?

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.

Oh look a question.

Ok so there is a furry animal in my attic.  Lets call him "Raccoon".  I live in a condo and said condo has yet to remove Mr. Raccoon from the attic.  We've placed traps and such in there but it's a no go.  (Not like smush raccoon in the face traps...but box it up and poke it with a stick trap)

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

Let's say that you live in a city, in the ground floor of a duplex.  It's winter, and has been steadily below freezing for a few days.  You've been noticing kitty prints in the snow around your back porch, and have even seen and heard a little cat meowing at your door.

Would you put food out for it?

Would you be worried that you were "stealing" someone's pet?

If the cat sticks around for a while (say, a month or more) would you try to take it to the vet, get it tested for FIV and feline leukemia, and, assuming it was healthy, attempt to make it part of your household (assume that there are two humans and two neutered cats in the apartment already)?

ETA: my cat is currently asleep on my arms and lap.  should i stay on the internet so i don't wake him, or wake him up and take him into bed?

One more before I hit the hay.

Tonight I was at the bar playing pool, which reminded me of the time I had a pool stick broke over my back. So I ask...

name calling

When you named your child/pet or do name child/pet how did you come up with it? Look for a something that sounds cool, unique, ordinary , but surely not complicated for others to not be able to pronounce or make fun of (like Jessica, James, Chris , and so on) or did you look for one that means something to you.. say the Spanish word for triumphant.. or powerful or whatever.

1. What is the most painful shot you have ever had?

2. Have you had the Gardasil shot?
2a. How long did the pain last after each of the sets?

answers
1. The Gardasil shot.
2. Yep, but only the first set.

driving vs. flying

So I'm going home next month for my niece's first birthday, my birthday, and just to see family over a long weekend. I have a buddy going with me, assuming he can get off of work for 2 days. TQC, what should we do.

Should we drive 2200 miles (round trip) with how high gas prices are (btw I drive a full size gas guzzling truck) or shell out 250$about 500$ each for tickets (round trip)?

Also: totally unrelated but- Am I horrible for immediately thinking "I wonder what questions Elliot will have on 'He died you win'" when I first heard of Heath Ledger's death yesterday?

EDIT: I forgot we couldn't leave till a certain time because he has to sign out (damn military) and that upped the prices of tickets...now what?

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?

Is so, what kinda of foods are okay to serve on MLK day?

Math question!

Based on the following formulas for Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) and Activity Factor (how active you are on a scale from not very active at all to holding an active job plus working out pretty much every day):

655 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) - (4.7 x age) = RMR

Sedentary = RMR x 1.2
Light Activity = RMR x 1.3 or 1.4
Moderate Activity = RMR x 1.5
Very Active = RMR x 1.6 or 1.7
Extreme Activity = RMR x 2.0 to 2.4

How many calories do you need to consume in a day?

I need about 1700 to 1900.
 

excuses excuses

 Ok, tomorrow I have court at 11:30 (don't ask). Well, I just found out that my SO took the rest of the day off and I want that too! So what can I give my work as a good excuse to not come back in for the rest of the day?

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"

I've posted to hair communities, but this one has more volume, and therefore more, and faster answers.

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.)

Last night at 3 am, right when I was getting ready to go sleep, my stepsister got home, came in my room and said "I have company, wink wink, we're gonna be loud so put some music on or something!" I was exhausted and didn't want to put music on, and wound up sleeping on the couch in the living room.

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?

Three questions:

1) I'm relatively new to LJ and I've been enjoying it. Should I upgrade to a paid account? Are the benefits really worth the charge?

2) I absolutely hate the user name I picked. I could pick a better one randomly. Should I get a name change token to change it, or should I keep what I'm stuck with now?

And completely unrelated ...
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?

- If Disney ever made a good full-length animated feature again:  What story should they do?
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?

I break up with my SO. It's too weird to be dating a member of the Bush family. I couldn't stop talking shit about their uncle anyway

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!"

1. There's this one mirror in a coffeeshop bathroom, and I don't know if it's the lighting or what, but I always look fantastic in it. Do you have any magic mirrors?

2. Illya Kuryakin or Napoleon Solo?

EDIT!!! In an unrelated but pressing issue, I told my mom that I'd save her the last S'mores cookie thing by Little Debbie. It's now been sitting there for 3 days waiting for her to eat it. But I REALLY want it. Should I eat it or continue to save it for her?

Are you allowed to surf the internet at work for personal purposes?

If you do it anyway (or your company has no set policy on the issue), do you think your boss would be upset if they knew?

What do you do for a living?

Well now I'm pissed... (Heath related, sorry.)

Upon seeing this, I have been thrown into a fit of rage.

What do you think about these people?

Should these beliefs be tolerated?

Why haven't these people been violently attacked by non-group members?
People are killed for much less offensive things. I don't understand why/how this is has not brought violence upon them. *
Edit: I'm not saying violence is the answer.

Is there anything you can do to help restore my faith in the world?

What was the last thing you completely blanked on?
I was trying to think of "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen". For some reason the title was occluded in my brain, and the best I could do was "The ..Group .. of Copyright Free Superheroes." Nobody knew what I was talking about. I had to mention Alan Moore and Sean Connery to get my point across.

what are those sites where you can take surveys and/or look at ads for money? i am not on my personal computer, so it's not bookmarked here.

if you've done it, is the process hard to set up? do you get money through a paypal account?

i have no idea how paypal works, so would you like to give me a brief summary?

should i look into doing this on a public computer, as to not junk up my computer with ads?

THIS IS HYPOTHETICAL, believe me. Related to a story I'm writing. I don't know if it's, like, two months or one week ._.

If one slit her wrists open or took an OD of sleeping pills and survived, how much sick leave would they get from work? He or she can't be legally fired for doing it, right?
If it's accidental, how much would one need for physical reasons only? I don't know how slitting your wrists would be accidental, but say you hit your hand through a window glass or something similar.

My friend is having a tattoo party on Saturday and wants me to come get a tattoo. While I've always thought that I would like to have one, I'm not quite sure where I would get it.

Where would you get a tattoo? Where would you not get one?
Show me yours if you have them.


ETA
-I know what I would be getting, I'm just undecided as to where.
-The tattoo party is, in fact, being held in shop.

Have you ever told someone the complete truth, but gotten the feeling that they think you lied to them?
Did you find out whether they did/didn't think you were lying later on?

(If you don't mind sharing) What did you tell them? How did they respond?

Some of my friends were going to come to a movie premiere thingy with me that I have passes for, but the ones that  were going to potentially give me a ride have all flaked.

I called my other BFF I didn't originally have room for and she's super duper sick.

The premiere is tonight at 7pm. It's for some new ghetto booty call movie called How She Move. Anyone want to commmmme?

3. I think parts of The Lighthouse are kinda eerie

Valentines Day

 Does anybody know any somewhat inexpensive Valentines Day ideas?
I've been with my boyfriend for nearly three years.  I usually buy something somewhat big, and make something. However, my creativity is lacking.

Cheesy ideas are welcome.
Thanks guys!

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?

Who killed Peter Campbell?

Does Jessica really go to jail?

Does Jodi get the girl he slept with in the first season pregnant?

Does Burt get abducted by aliens?


I watched the whole first season with my bf and we cant rent or afford to buy the second season or more of them. Any other spoilers you want to add is great too :)

Are there any words that you always mispronounce on purpose because of an inside joke? What are they?

When my brother was about ten he wrote a story about some people who went to "Flordia and Cubia," so now whenever I talk about Florida I say "Flordia" and usually add "and Cubia" onto it.

I also often say "gradiation" instead of graduation.

I'm buying a laptop soon. I've never had one before and I know very little about them. I'm thinking about buying a mac. Considering that they are seriously, seriously stretching my budget, would it be worth it? Even if I get the most basic, cheapest one available? What are the pros and cons?
I store a lot of music and photos on my computer. Other than that it will be for typical college student needs. I don't play games or anything like that.

And for fun:

Being that I am interested in:
Writing
Health and fitness
Photography

and I hate:
Blood and guts

5) I'm going to this mall saturday. What stores should I visit?

Biggest Loser

Did anyone else think last night's episode rather sucked? Pink team getting the boot, even though they did nothing wrong except not kissing the Yellow team's asses?


I thought this show had some integrity, that the strongest competitors can stay on the show indefinitely as long as they lose the weight, but these new rules mean that no one's safe from arbitrary politics
