Weird TMI question, but I have REALLLLLY bad acne on my back, and I've had it ever since I was old enough to get acne.  NOTHING works; it all just makes it a little less red, but no less acne.  Can you recommend anything that works really well for you?


I got a really shitty haircut today.  I mean a REALLY shitty haircut.  It's so shitty that I'm going to say the word shit a few more times in the course of this little paragraph to convey to you the complete shittiness of my head right now.  The only way to fix it would be to hack all my hair to above my ears, and I HATE the way I look with short hair even more than I hate the way I look now, so I'm keeping this shitty haircut.  TQC, when you get a shitty haircut that you can't do anything about, what do you do to make yourself feel better?

real americans eat meat?

My friend is trying to find an image of a poster he saw in a book once. It's an old propaganda poster that says something to the tune of, "Real Americans Eat Meat!"

Google images has failed him and flickr searches failed me, but maybe you'll have more luck. Can you find this image?

(I don't actually care how you feel about the propaganda, by the way.)

Thanks!

So, it's almost 1:30am, and I'm going to bed soon.  The only thing is, I've only eaten about 650 calories today.  I'm NOT trying to starve myself or anything, but my stomach's felt a little off all day and I just haven't been hungry.  Should I eat something else because I've eaten so little today, or should I just say "screw it" and go to bed?
ETA: I'm not especially hungry right now.

I found a cell phone at the concert I went to tonight.
I reverse searched the "home" contact phone number and the results were a guys name AND "The Wave Club". I'm assuming the guy owns this place because he's listed as the owner of it according to whitepages.com ...

He lives 2 1/2 hours from me so I'll have to send the phone to him unless he wants to travel to get his phone from me.
Assuming he owns this place, I think he has money.

Should I make him compensate me?
What do I say when he calls?? "no phone until you give me $50!?" To be honest, I'd at least like $5 for postage. Fair? Or am I being cheap?

Also, I have to go for dinnner with part of the family that I have not seen in several years. I haven't seen them mainly because I don't like them. I don't hate them, just can't be bothered with them & we don't have all that much in common. Aside from bailing on it completely, how do I get through this Sunday Lunch escapade?

Fishy Feelings

Do you believe that fish have feelings?
Or emotions, or character?
I have a salt water fish tank, and all my fish have such noticeable personalities.
I know some are aggressive and some are docile and the list goes on, so how can they not have feelings if they have personalities. (fishonalities?)
Perhaps a super dumb question, but I am stumped on this.

So my district manager is getting married in a few months. I don't particularly like her, but she does work hard, and she is generally a good person. I figure it would be nice to get something for her, with everyone in my store pitching in a few bucks. I asked around, and ten dollars seems to be okay with everyone. Thing is, we have no idea what to get her. She's a really picky person. I don't want to just be like "Here's a Target gift card- go wild!" So, any ideas for a universally liked wedding gift?

(There's five of us, so the gift should be 50 dollars or below)

Livejournal Hates Me

Every time I typed www.livejournal.com in the address bar, my computer would freeze. At first I contributed this to the fact my computer was a piece of shit. But I just went and bought a new computer last night. My new computer also freezes up every time I type in www.livejournal.com in the address bar.

3) Just for the sake of having another question: I told my friend that I'm interested in this guy, and she told me to go for it. I said that I couldn't, because he is hot and I'm not. However, he is somewhat socially inept. Does that bring him down to my level a bit, or is it just not to be that I shall ever date a hot guy?

So it's Saturday afternoon, it's pissing rain outside, and I'm bored as hell. So, TQC, answer me this:

1) Do you wear jewellery on a regular basis? (This isn't just for girls; I'm interested in hearing from the guys, too.)

2) If so, what pieces do you usually wear? Or do you mix it up from day to day?

As for me:

1) I've been wearing jewellery on a daily basis for about six years now.
2) I always wear two specific things: my college ring and the white gold chain my godfather gave me for Christmas. Sometimes (but not often) I wear earrings.

Yesterday morning our freezer stopped working. It wasn't keeping anything cold. The refrigerator portion still worked, however, so we moved everything that was in the freezer into the fridge so it would stay cold.

In the afternoon, the fridge broke. We have a large freezer in the garage, so we moved that into the house and put all of our freezer stuff in it, and used coolers with ice to keep everything else cold. This seemed like it would work ok until we could buy a new refrigerator.

But now the large freezer is broken too. Keeps things colder than if they were just laying around in room temperature, but it's basically useless. It is plugged in to a different outlet than the broken refrigerator.

Is the breaking of both appliances related, or do we just have really bad luck?

Vacation Time! Now where the hell am I going to go?

Hi! I know I asked a question similar to this one before, but things are finally getting serious. I need to start planning a relatively short (approx. 2 week) international vacation, probably to take place during July or August, and the wife and I are really not sure where we want to go. I'm open to almost anywhere, as is my wife, with some reservations. We'll probably do 2-3 cities in one, or less likely, two countries.

We've been thinking of destinations as diverse as Ethiopia (probably Addis and a loop by air of historical sites), Brazil (probably Rio and Salvador de Bahia), and Turkey (Istanbul) with a side trip by ferry to Ukraine (Odessa). But we're mostly still completely up in the air. So we come to you, O TQC, to ask: where would you spend a two-week summertime international jaunt? Specific cities and towns are especially welcome, but countries are cool too.

I got called out on something yesterday. Should I change this about myself?

I'm scared because I never realized that it makes people uncomfortable when I do this. I always thought people appreciated it.

I always ask people questions about themselves. Like when they tell me something, I always ask why or how, and try to get down to their motivation because I like to learn about people.

My friend, whom I've met in the fall, told me that I make her uncomfortable when I do that because she feels that I "dig into people and try to see them, their personal feelings. Like a psychologist." She said, "I'm transparent, and I thought you were, too, at first, but you're not as simple as you look. You have a protection up, and that scares me. I don't know what your subtext is." (She can't speak English well, I think she meant that she can't read me.) She started to say this when I asked her how long she has known a mutual friend K. She said, "longer than you, but I feel more comfortable with you." I asked why. And she said that I seem softer than K. I asked how. And it was then that she called me out on that (what I said previously). She says that she doesn't trust me enough. I just like to know people's opinions.

Honestly, please give me your honest opinion of this, but please don't be too harsh. This commmunity has said some hurtful stuff, but please not this time because this has always been my personality so it'll hurt a lot more. I like honesty, but please don't be mean. Should I change this (with everyone else)?

I know what at-will is...California is an at-will state, meaning you can quit at any time or be fired at any time.
But what does Ongoing mean? Does that mean they can't fire without due cause or something?

The man upstairs is having a loud angry fight with a woman (his girlfriend? I don't know). It is not the first time that they have done this, and tonight, it has been going on for some time now (at least half an hour). It's disturbing me a lot for personal reasons.

I ended up calling the police, who said they'll send somebody over.

Anything I need to make sure to do or say when they get here? I've never been on this side of things before. :|


The police came, checked it out, and left. Shortly thereafter, the neighbor came downstairs, knocked on my door, and yelled at me for calling the police, saying, "I don't call the damn police when I can hear your music, so why the hell would you call the police on me? It's none of your business." I just said, "I appreciate you not calling the police when you can hear our music, and I don't call the police when I can hear YOUR music; when I hear yelling, I am concerned, especially because it's happened more than once, and I wanted to make sure that everything was okay. And yes, when I can hear YOUR yelling, it is my business." and shut the door.

The end.

We all have people who have affected us at one point in our lives a great deal. Some positively, some negatively. But we don't always get to tell these people how much of an impact they had on us; they may go through life never knowing what they mean to us, for better or worse.

If you could somehow step outside of society's expectations, or the confines of time, or whatever keeps you silent to tell these people what they meant to you...

2. If you hold down the handle the same thing will happen.

It was working fine yesterday, we have tried plunging.

I've already downloaded "I believe in a thing called love" by The Darkness and a few Live songs. I'm contemplating downloading "Piece of Me" by Britney Spears and other crap like that.

I'm trading in my car.
Upgrade? or Downgrade?

I have a 2001 Plymouth Neon. 86K miles.
The transmission is on it's last leg, gas sucks, it shakes like a freight train when it's in idle, and the battery needs to be replaced ALL the time.

What I looked at today.
A 2003 Kia Sorento.
It only has 53K miles on it, and I have read nothing but good reviews about it.

What do you think?

Those of you who are Proactiv users, I have a couple of questions.

1. What kind of makeup remover do you use?
2. What kind of moisturizer do you use and how soon after using the Repair Lotion do you apply your moisturizer?

I am asking because I started using Proactiv and I had the initial breakout, then my skin started to clear up.  At the time, I was just using Dove cleansing pillows to remove my makeup.  Now, I am using Bare Minerals makeup remover wipes, since I use that makeup.  My skin has started breaking out again.  

3. Have any of you had a similar situation...anything else you want to add?
4. Tell me all about your Proactiv experiences.

Are there any movies or TV shows you watched when you were little, but now realize that it was way inappropriate for your age? Any funny stories relating to it?

According to a journal entry from first grade, my favorite TV show was "Married With Children". I was six.

I was obsessed with Clueless when I was in third grade (eight when it first came out).  I even asked my mom to buy me some thigh-high socks.  She bought me knee-high socks instead, and I threw a fit. :X

 1.What is your definition of cool?

2.What is a quality that you look for or have found in a SO?

3.If you were in a band, what would its name be, and what would its first album be called?

1. the riff at the beginning of "Heartbreaker" by Led Zeppelin

2. the ability to have a different opinion and not have to have a huge argument about it

3. "Socks and Shoes" and the album would be called "homework over the weekend." I know I'm a dork.

My friend has just told me that she has just taken some speed.

I'm not strictly against drugs but I'm curious about this and slightly concerned because she has never touched any other drug before. Ever. What is speed like? What are the side effects etc? I don't know anything about it.

help with a decision

Should I go to Art Institute of Boston next year or should I go to SUNY Purchase?

AIB - I went there earlier this year before getting sick, made lots of friends and majored in photography. however, it was slightly overwhelming (not sure if I want to do only photography) and i hated how it was connected to Lesley University( where we lived far from the actual school).I'd be in boston near my twin and a bunch of other friends

SUNY Purchase - I would go next year as a freshmen in New Media (a program that is graphic design, photography, video, web design and other stuff) which incorporates many of my passions. I will have to make friends again (which educes anxiety). I would be in NY near the city and close to my two of my best friends.

Has anyone ever gone to either one of these schools?

What college did/do/going to go to?

Does anyone else think that the food cooked on Iron Chef looks nasty?

What decision do you have to make?

Am I the only one who does this? And it is weird?

Even if I'm not easily read, I try to convince myself that I am easily read for moral improvement. I try to tell myself that people can see through my true feelings. This gets me to be more genuine.

Example: Sometimes when I don't like someone, I act nice to him or her anyway and smile. I hate that and feel really fake. So I try to make myself like the person (if it's an irrational reason) by seeing the good in him or her. That way I won't feel guilty for being fake 'cause it's more genuine.

I don't know if I explained it right. I just try to believe that people can see through me so I don't try to decieve people or lie to them that much, or at all. Does anyone get it?
