What are some semi-tactful ways to tell your male friends that you're on your period? So far when they ask what's wrong, I tell them my uterus is eating itself. Telling them that I'm cramping just makes them ask why I'm cramping. What's a good way to get the point across without completely horrifying them?

1. When you were in elementary school, did your school or teacher make you line up in two lines? I find this totally odd and unnecessary, and it's happening in the school where I observe (pre-student teaching). They go by a line of girls and a line of boys.
1a. Do you know why they would do this? Are they trying to alienate the sexes or something?

CNN *Breaking* News:
-- Britain's Prince Harry has been serving on the front line in Afghanistan, CNN confirms.

Does anybody else get kind of irked that we have family members, friends, loved ones, lovers on the front lines and they don't get any recognition, yet someone who is doing what he should be doing anyway gets a bunch of media attention?

Does this kind of situation, in general (not applying to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan), bother you?

Could you give a shit less?

Am I stirring up a controversial "the media is a dumbass" debate?

text - something to say

Dear TQC,

A math question for you!
Is Phil Collins to Genesis as Lou Reed is to Velvet Underground?

In your opinion, can anything that Lou Reed did solo be any better than what he did in the Velvet Underground?
For example, would you say that the song 'Perfect Day' is the best Lou Reed song of all time?
If not, what is your favorite Lou Reed song? And did he originally perform it with the Velvet Underground, or is it a solo work?

are there any side effects to eating to many mushrooms?
*edit* When I say mushrooms, are you assuming I'm meaning the kind you don't get from the supermarket?
i don't even like mushrooms and i've been craving them.
I also have a taste in sort of the back of my throat that is somewhat like an oniony smell, only not quite and brushing my teeth didn't really help, but mouthwash did. Do I have an infection of a sorts? Is something stuck in my braces and rotting? Are my tonsils rotting? Or is it the mushrooms??

posting this many places...

so, you know, awhile back my car got broken into and amoung many items stolen - were 3 full books of store bought and home-made burned CDs...
i put it out there in my lj and another community, and folks sent me all kinds of CDs of music from their personal libraries..
now i'm very open minded, and was and still am willing to give things i don't know about a listen-to, you know - check it out and give it a chance...
some of it i've heard of and totally love, some is new, and there is much that i wouldn't ordinarily purchase on my own, but now that i've listened to it (several times), i can find a mood in which it would fit....
i just consider it a piece of kindness from them to me that they took the time to do this and i'm most appreciative...
i now have a new collection of some classic rock, indie/alternative/punk rock, comedy, and david sent me what i consider death/industrial/kill-you-in-your-face/metal/goth rock (and he was more excited about what HE was sending than what jamie (his girlfriend) sent (alternative/some indie/punk) -
and you know, it's all good...

my question to you is -

what type of music have you come around to liking, even tho' you didn't like/couldn't stand before?
any kind of "new-to-you" music to which you've been introduced?

My temporary position is ending in two more weeks. So this is the time I like to ask myself what I really want to do with myself. I am pretty sure I won’t get a cool job working in a screen printing shop but I like to think of what I would enjoy to do temporarily.

What should I do on temporary basis to pay my bills while going to school?

I have over three years experience as an administrator for directors and presidents. I have managed a number of programs and have a great deal experience managing a floor. I enjoy an office setting but I wouldn’t mind changing things up. I prefer a position that gave me a chance to use my creativity more then the regular office functions that I have been doing. I wouldn’t mind being paid less if it meant I be doing something that I enjoyed.

Do you think I can find the job I want in the Valley of the Sun?

My prospectus is due today (why on a non-class day?!). I work until 4:00 and then immediately have to run over to my 4:30-7:00 class.

My professor's office hours are until 5:00.

Should I deliver the prospectus on my lunch break, therefore sacrificing my lunch?

Or should I deliver it after my 7:00 class, because "hey! 7:00 is still part of today!"?

Poll #1146107 Questionable Acts

You're at a faire. There's some guy on stilts, walking about. On the stilts, his head is like 12 feet above the ground. He's moving through the crowd and approaching your section. Some guy offers you $1,000 if you trip him. Would you do it?


At the same fair, there's a dunk tank. When it's not in use, they cover it up and put up a temporary wall to hide it. It's scheduled for a 3pm show. The same guy who asked you to trip the stiltman has another bet for you. He's managed to acquire 50 bottles of Nair. For $1,000, he wants you to empty out a quarter of the tank, and dump in all the Nair instead. You don't know who's going to be sitting in the dunk tank, but it'll probably ruin their day. Would you do it?


You're at Disneyland. You're milling through the crowd, when you find that you're behind Pinnochio (well, the costumed actor in a suit). He's squatting down to talk to a couple of young tykes. His pants hang low, and you can see his underwear (beneath the suit). Their parents aren't around and no one's looking at you. "Psst, hey." You look, and it's that guy from the faire! He'll offer you $50 if you give Pinnochio a really bad wedgie. Would you do it?


It's Christmas time! You're at the mall, and there's a line of kids who are waiting to see Santa. "Psst, hey". Holy crap, it's that faire guy again! He'll give you $400 if you give Santa a lapdance, in front of all these kids and their parents. You have to make it obvious, by gyrating your butt on Santa's crotch. After that, run like hell to avoid the mall security, but if they're giving chase, he promises he'll do what he can to distract them or slow them down. Would you do it?


For $3,000, would you be willing to sneak into a church confessional early Easter Sunday morning, and, during the morning sermon (when people are most quiet), turn on a vibrator and start moaning pleasurably and loudly. After a couple minutes, step out, vibrator in hand, wave at the crowded church, and just say "sorry, I really had to get off". You then haul ass out of there before anyone can do anything about it. Would you do it?


This last one isn't that morally questionable, but it's funny. Could you have sex with your SO (or some hot guy/girl) if they wore a very convincing Yoda mask, and during the lovemaking session, kept speaking to you in Yoda-ese ("Fellatio you will. Cum I must" or "G-spot you will find. Explore you must"). Remember, the face of your lover looks just like Yoda. Do you think you could finish?



TQC, will you do me a favor?

Hai TQC,
I like to eat me some fish. In the spring, we catch a lot of trout and I LOVE to eat it...however there's one problem--the smell!!

After cleaning and preparing trout, my hands will smell horribly for days. I've tried baking soda, toothpaste, soaps...it just dosent help.

Also, my cutting board, sink, etc will also smell after cleaning the fish....

any sugestions? I love trout, but the smell= horrid.

Have you ever "adopted" a kid from somewhere like the Christian Children's Fund? You know, the organizations that say you can feed and clothe a kid for 25 cents a day and they'll send you pics of the kid thriving thanks to your support?

If you have, did you actually get pictures of your adopted kid?

So, Rhinos only have peripheral vision, so they can't look straight ahead at something and see the same thing with both eyes.

Does this mean that if you put them in a room where the left wall is blue and the right wall is red, they'll see purple?

shaking hands = bad sign?

Hey People!
1st timer here.

Is this a bad sign?

3rd date, we went to the movies, watched a dvd, listened to music at his place, he showed me pics of his cat and his house and artistic he had taken himself and the rest of the time we chatted about ourselves and about philosophy and literature. He smiled all the time and looked me in the eyes. At 6am I say it's too late already and have to go. He says "This, tonight was..." I spilt the tea and we clean it before he can finish his sentence. He claims to have forgotten what it was when I asked.

I step out and instead of hugging me (like he did in the 2nd date) he gives me his hand to shake, makes a funny military sign and lets me go.

I have a $100 online gift card to Wal-Mart, but you can only use it on the website (which completely blows because then you have to pay shipping unless you pick some shitty item with free shipping or wait a million years for site-to-store).  Anyway, I don't know what to get.  So, TQC, what should I get?  I like things that are practical, but ridiculous suggestions are always welcome.  For some background info, I'm 22, stay-at-home mom, I have an 8-month-old, and we just moved into a new apartment that we don't have enough stuff to fill it up or decorate with.

A recent question here reminded me that I've been meaning to ask this for a while.

Can somebody help me remember this recipe someone taught me once, a long time ago? If not, will you help me invent one that will presumably be something close? :)

I remember it was ramen noodles (without the seasoning, I think), peanut butter, peas, and orange juice. It may have had other things, those are just the ones I remember. It was meant to be really balanced, nutritionally, and cost less than two dollars per (large!) serving. It was really tasty.

Has anybody ever heard of this recipe? For all I know, the person who taught it to me made it up, but you never know. But if not, can any of you cooking-types help me invent a new recipe like it?

Okay, this is serious.
All day I have been diligently listening to classical music and working on my thesis. It is nearly 5:30 and my boyfriend has gone to tennis training until 8:30/9:00ish.

Do I discard said thesis, go get Chinese food, and put on a chick flick?

Not serious:
Today in the library my left eye began hurting badly and teared uncontrollably, with my nose following suit. The bathroom was at the other end with people at desks in between. Without a tissue at hand and not wanting to be seen with a tear stained, mascara streaked, snotty face mess I dived into my bag and wiped my face with a panty liner before going to the bathroom.

What object other than a tissue/toilet paper/paper towel/sleeve have you ever relied on to wipe your nose? If any?

1.I met a gay Native American man today. It was cool.
What is the last cool thing that happened to you?

2. I'm putting together a runway show in May. I'm showcasing a clothing line from Nepal and jewelry from all over the world. Its going to be very exotic/jungle ish. The models will have mud on them. Anyone out there live near Boston looking to earn some extra cash in May? Looking for sexy confident people with lots of energy. One day of training, and one day of working. Both paid for. Sangria! Many artists from all over will be attending so it is a great way to get your face out in the art world. Let me know if you are interested?

3.My lips are so chapped I look like I had injections.
Whats bothering you?

4. If you cut your stomach open with scissors trying to open a box, who would you call first?

I'm trying to answer this question myself and I haven't gotten very far


Workout sites?

Anyone know of any good sites/LJ comms that are good for finding out workouts and the like? I need to find something good to help me get back in shape for track faster that I can do on my own at home.

I think my brain is on the fritz....I have looked under word meter and found nothing really to my liking. I know there was I had where it was a website of all sort of different types of progress trackers but I'll be damned if I can remember the name of it... Does anyone happen to know that I'm talking about?

A few months ago I dyed my hair with a semi-permenent dark brown dye. My pourous hair held onto that color and my roots are very visable. I tried dying my hair back to strawberry blond with a permanent dye but none of the color took. Should I try giving it another attempt?
Why is my hair so full of fail? Are certain brands of dye better than others?

I'm going to make a frock coat, what color should the inside lining be?

I woke up with some really bad emo hair. What does your hair look like when you get out of bed?

I don't want to clean the kitchen or finish my home work. What things do you not look forward to?

What day is tomorrow?

Do you know any, or very many, people with February 29 birthdays?

I was thinking about how many people I know who have birthdays tomorrow. My aunt, my neighbor growing up, his son (!!), my friend's partner, and another childhood neighbor.

There are probably more I'm not remembering right now.

I usually don't come here with personal problem questions, so here goes.

My friends, let's call them Amy and Keith, are the problem.  Amy, who is extremely introverted, doesn't want a boyfriend, so Keith decides to find a boyfriend for her.  He can be very controlling.  At first, we thought he was just kidding about teasing Amy about this boy, let's call him Carl, and how they would make an extremely cute couple.  Amy gets annoyed pretty easily, but she usually shruggs it off in Keith's case.  But Keith has persisted in teasing her about it to the point where Amy tells him that she'd consider going out with Carl if Keith didn't mention him for a week.  Today, Keith was very excited because it was the last day of the bet and could talk to Carl for her.  Amy did not sit with us today.  Yesterday, she barely talked.  (Carl had no particular interest in Amy, which is exactly what Amy wants.)  Keith tells me that he wanted that couple to happen so badly, regardless of Amy's feelings.  She protested all the way, but Keith insists that I'm not hearing all of the story. Keith and Amy were talking on the phone, and apparently, Amy is not as upset about the Carl situation as I think, and that it's something else bothering her.  He insists that he is closer to Amy than I am and I can't tell what she's mad at.  I tried asking him why he went so far with the joke, and he said that he was just set on making Carl and Amy a couple.  But I can absolutely tell that Keith is just so overbearing and Amy is getting sick of him, but doesn't know how to deal with it.  I've done my best to keep light of the situation when Amy's around, just to let her know that I'm not pushing her.

What the heck do I do?!  Can you believe the way Keith is treating Amy?  What would you do?

Why do they keep making youtube more and more retarded?

Can I still browse all video results by date, or do I have to pick from the 4 categories they give now?

Would you watch a video of someone knitting as long as it had good music?

Have any of you seen the documentary "My Kid Could Paint That"? It's about a four year old girl (Marla) who became world famous for her abstract paintings until 60 Minutes did a story claiming her father was either helping her or doing them all himself.

If you've seen it, do you believe she did the paintings herself or is her father helping her?

If you haven't seen it, I've put two pictures behind a cut. One of them was a painting they actually filmed her doing, the other isn't. Do you believe these two paintings are done by the same person?
