If you thought you were likely to find out something about your mate that might break up the relationship (whether because of the act itself or because they had lied to you about it), would you still make the effort to find out the unpleasant truth or prefer to stay blissfully ignorant?

Please, tell me stories. Either how wonderful it turned out , or that it's a completely disasterous idea and I need to let go.
Story: They signed a lease together with friends while they were still together, broke up last August/September and he's living there until the lease is up, therefore making it damn near impossible to move on being that they see eachother all the time. He blames himself for the demise of the relationship. She wants nothing to do with him and he doesn't want to talk to her most of the time either. He made every effort to start things up with me and now goes back and forth between being depressed about his ex and being depressed about me, talking about how he's "undeserving of another opportunity to be loved or to love" and doesn't feel he has any relationship potential left in him.

6 years ago, when I was in public high school, I took Japanese and loved it. The home schooling system we used didn't offer Japanese and I had to abandon it after almost two years of commitment. I'd love to pick it up again, and this seems like the most convenient way to do so. But how effective will it be?
help me, tqc!!

So, since clubs are out, what should I do to celebrate finally turning 18?
apparently my friend who gives me a ride to school in the morning said she didn't have her class on Monday, and I thought she said Friday. In result, I slept until 7 and she called saying she was outside my house. I swear she said friday. it's all her fault if I don't get to school today.

Four days before the appointment you start to feel a cold coming on, you know that if you can't breath through your nose they won't do it and you'll have to wait again. You're also going overseas in just over a month.
Question: Would you take the day off to try to get better even though you could probably manage a day at work, but would probably feel sicker at the end of the day?
My answer: I'm taking the day off. Hot tea, cold and flu tablets and resting should see me feeling well enough for the appointment. I hope.

Anyone got any music recommendations, specifically songs about waiting on someone, or hoping the best for them? Basically my bf is in the hospital today undergoing surgery and I could use some background music to the day. Any genre works.
Ive been baking vegan cupcakes for my nephew and am having a bit of a problem.
I bought some concentrated dye for the cupcakes. I tried blue. mixed it into the batter and it looked great. However, after I bring them out... they just dont look nice at all. The truness of the blue color fades away and looks faded, brown on the bottom and not a pretty kind of blue at all. Its almost green :*( The same happened with the red.
Am I doing something wrong? Any advice? i may just make plain white and chocolate cupcakes and stick to pretty frosting.
Any help is very appreciated!!

Cause I feel shitty, however I have some work that she wanted done today that isn't finished, so I figured I could take the day and finish it and then email it to her, or just show her the next class. I hate missing class, but I'd hate even more to pass this on to anyone else.
I say your mid-twenties begins at 24 and ends at 27. She thinks mid-twenties means 25-27. But she turns 24 this month so I think she's just in denial that she's in her mid-twenties!
2. When did you start feeling "old" (if you have, yet)?
When I turned 22, I'm not sure why since it's not really that old.
3. What do you want for your next birthday?
I'm getting a nice vacuum cleaner! :D
4. How old will you be on your next birthday?
I'll be 23 next month
Will you post a picture or video of something you find cute?
What names can you think of that fit these criteria?
It's a pretty day (but cooold) and my SO and I want to do something fun. Whaaat should we do? That doesnt cost any/a lot of money? I'm so bad at this game. And we cant stay at the house. And going to the park is getting old.
Who do you want to win?
We are going to a friends house, he just got this huge flatscreen. We are making snacks to eat and bringing beer to drink.
I don't care who wins, I don't follow football.
I often spew fanatical opinions about coworkers in my lj. One of my coworkers knows my user name and probably keeps updated. So far, no one has come to my office to confront me about my frank (and probably hurtful) viewpoint but I suspect that it is only a matter of time before someone does. I am very capable of supporting my perspective and sometimes think that "putting things out on the table" might actually be beneficial (in the long run). However, I am also quite sure that the confrontation will add to an already fraught environment.
My question is: Should I create a new journal to avoid the troubles? OR Continue to write merrily along? What would you do?

2. Which would you rather research, sex in the world of politics or the politics of sex?
3. Who do you think is the sexiest politician?
1. Politics wins hands down. There's always a hint of awkwardness when I discuss sex IRL, and I can talk about politics to total strangers.
2. I think the politics of sex would be interesting. I don't really want to read about some politician's "OMG sex scandal."
3. John Edwards

I'm arguing with someone in another community (me? arguing? SAY IT AIN'T SO!). The situation is: someone says they can't work because of their mental health issue. I say that unless the person seeks help for their depression or whatever, they are just making excuses when they say they can't do something because of their mental health.
What do you think, TQC? Do you agree or disagree? When is something a poor excuse and when is it a valid excuse?
1- Nothing.. no more paying for birth control.. wooo hoooooo
2- donor sperm/her egg/she carries the baby
3- IVF- his sperm/donor egg/she carries the baby
4- IVF- donor sperm/donor egg/surrogate carries the baby
5- IVF- his sperm/her egg/she carries the baby
6- his sperm/her egg/surrogate carrie the baby
keeping in mind IVF is expensive and may not be sucessful, would that prompt you to choose a different method?

2. You might have heard that Fox plans to integrate its Super Bowl Sunday coverage with Super Tuesday coverage - bringing in President Bush as well as talking politics with football players, etc. Do you have an opinion about this? For some reason I have a major problem with this - mostly because of Fox News and its reputation for playing fast and loose with the truth in politics. And I really feel like Fox is doing sort of a bait and switch here - using Super Bowl coverage and its built-in audience as a way to advance its neo-conservative, biased agenda. Or am I totally overreacting here?
The linoleum is white-ish with gray specs in it. The faint stains are a more yellowish color from the bottom of a cheap area rug that we never should have bought in the first place.

I am considering buying it with my refund. I need something to get to and from work (less than a mile away) and to and from shopping at local places and such.
My only question is; should I?
The items description says something about "kids" but then the weight limit is 220 lbs, *looks at self*, am 25 yrs old and not anywhere close to that. It's only 200 bucks, and considering it's the cutest one I've been able to find that isn't over a grand, am srsly tempted.
Also, would I have to part it in the parking lot (plz to be keeping in mind that I live in an area with loads of stupid ppl/methers/ijits) or do you think that they would allow me to park it inside the cart bay doors for my own paranoia's sake?
If not this one, does you have recommendations for one that I should be looking into?
The only thing i wish it had, is a windshield. D: but am supposing I can't have it all *le sigh*
Also, it snowed a bucket load here last night. One co-worker called off "sick", her mother, whom she lives with, called off for "weather"; the thing is, they live down the street from the lady that gives me a ride work, and we made it in FINE. This morning, just as I was getting ready to leave, I saw the younger ones boyfriend buying some stuff... I call bull shit. Should I tell management? Should I just never let her live it down? Or should i just kind of casually mention it to one of the blabber mouths at work and let them do the job for me. *it should be noted that these two; at least to the people they work with, for doing things like that. and the roads really weren't all that bad!*
*sorry for the long post* *uses teal deer icon*

I'd like to read some random LJ entries.
Keep seeing the same person afterward?
1. What is something my boyfriend and I can do on the 14th that would in no way be traditionally romantic or stimulate the Valentine-related economy? The idea is to do something fun without buying in to what the holiday is supposed to entail. I've never "celebrated" this thing before and don't have so many ideas. Things we've thought of so far include going to see a gory movie, baking cupcakes, or going to a firing range... recommendations?
2. What is the craziest Valentine's Day you've ever had?
Me: Last year I adopted my persona as the Love Fairy, benevolent healer of broken love lives. I dressed up and pelted people with sprinkles. It was completely obnoxious and very enjoyable in a way that's hard to describe. The other years, I've just ignored it outright.
Anyone have other ideas for excercising that don't involve going outside? I don't have a gym membership.
What's a reasonable amount of weight to lose every week? I've never tried losing weight before and I've no idea how fast or slow I should expect it to go.
Country: Alabama, Garth Brooks, Blackhawk, Kenny Chesney
Rock: Ozzy, Aerosmith, Metallica, Tom Petty and the Heatbreakers
Not sure what to put their music in a group as:
Paramore, Plain White T's, Wolfmother, Automatic Love Letters, Nirvana, Violent Femmes, The Ramones
If you can think of something for me to add to my ipod drop me a line...
What should I do with it?
- naturally very straight hair
- it's fine, but there is a lot of it.
- it won't hold curl and doesn't do well with most styling products
