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?
I'm writing a story that has the main character as a songwriter, but I'm not really good at lyrics. I'm looking for someone who will lend me their lyrics for FULL CREDIT. =] If not, I'll try my hand, but it won't be pretty....
I've decided to try my hand. If not, i'll come asking again, haha. =] Thanks people...
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? 2. Have you ever gotten busted for downloading? My parents just got an email saying we're being monitored because my brother downloads movies all the time, and I figured it was just an urban legend :(
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?
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??
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?
Which two meals are you more likely to have a snack in between?
Do you usually snack because you're craving a specific snack, or because you're too hungry to wait until the next meal?
I'm thinking of buying some snacks every week because the time between breakfast and lunch is long enough to be kind of annoying. What small, yummy snacks do you suggest I buy and take with me to work?
I'm still a full-time student, and missing class even just to go to the damn courthouse is pretty lame. It sounds like I could postpone it to the summer, but I take summer school too. Any ways to get out of this? I'm kind of paranoid to just "not go."
I want to break up with my long time boyfriend of five years. I have lost respect for him and well I think it is time to start the new chapter of my life with out boyfriend. We live together so breaking up is kind of a challenge. How do I go about dumping his ass and getting him out of my studio? Serious and non serious answers are all welcomed! ^_^
so right now i have a stuffy nose, sore throat, and overall "i just got hit by a truck" feeling. normally i would just wait it out, but my bf is coming tomorrow and i haven't seen him in a month and im taking him to a concert tomorrow night. i need to get better! so TQC any quick fix remedies that will make me feel brand new by tomorrow night?
I recently had a phone interview with this company with whom I applied for an internship. I won't find out if I'm hired or not until the end of March. I really want the internship but it's extremely competitive. If the interviewer told me that they called because my resume was one that stood out, what are the chances that I'll get the internship?
Do you think there is a cut off date before it is useless to break up with someone? What would this cut off date be? Let say you are with someone for fifty years and then decide this person just doesn’t give you butterflies. Is it worth breaking up with them?
My friend has this wall hanging in his room that looks like a really old menu, but we can't tell what language it is written is. These are some of the things written on the menu: (spelling may not be correct, that font is whack)
Litotipografia romana Linne Aeree Sud Africane Creasione: d'amico & deufemia
And as far as we can tell, the restaurant name is Da Meo Patacca: se magna ese beuf ar cambio der callo.
Open to: All, detailed results viewable to: All. Participants: 119
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?
I have a project due tonight. The project is done, but my prof. is having trouble accessing the link, probably because it requires some sort of crazy Microsoft bullshit and he's trying to view it on a mac. IDK.
Can you let me know if it works for you, and what OS you're using if it does?
EDIT : Thanks, everyone. The lesson learned: Never let your programmer husband talk you into using a Microsoft program that is so incredibly dependent on both OS and web browser. Or at least make him tell you it's dependent first. :(
My 30th birthday is coming up in 33 days. My mother wants to know what I want... I have no idea. I don't really need anything, and I don't really want for anything. Any suggestions to cool online stores or anything? I like books, movies, jewelry, all things French or English, horses, music, etc. I also thought it might be nice to have something special, since it is my 30th.
In addition: what was your favorite 'big' birthday gift?
Very soon I need to have three ideas for a final project in my video production class but I have absolutely no idea what to do! It has to be 5 minutes long and tell a visual story (so anything with lots of talking is automatically out). I work with kids at a daycare center and live on my college campus.
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?
Why does Circuit City hate me? I went there yesterday to buy a digital camera and I had narrowed it down to four choices. So why did Circuit City have the displays out but no cameras? Not any of my choices. And now I've found another one I want on their website but it's out of stock and not available at any of the 3 stores around me. Why?
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.
how should i kill myself in a way that does not give my mother a heart attack? i don't want her to be permanently traumatized by opening the door to my room and see me hanging. i also don't want to jump off into the ocean and have her search for me with false hope.
please answer the question that i have asked. if you are compelled to lecture me otherwise, please refrain from commenting.
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.
OR if you don't feel like answering for me, what would you get yourself if you had a $100 Wal-Mart online gift card?
What could I make for dinner with the following ingredients? I also have five dollars I can spend. :-P
We are poor at the moment and this is what I have to work with: 25lbs of white rice Assorted mixture of wild and other rice’s 30lbs of pinto beans Pigeon peas Tomato sauce Whole wheat noodles Firm frozen tofu Assorted pre cooked red/lent/pinto beans in freezer Obscene amounts of condiments. Sofrito
((really what I listed isn't poor. Some people have less.))
Isn't there a website I can list ingredients and it gives me a list of recipes?
When was the last time somebody got on your freaking effing nerves? FRUSTRATED? Feel free to vent in this post.
"somebody" keeps texting telling me that they need to talk to me, I TOLD them that I am going to be running a bang of errands tonight after work and I will call them after 9 because that's probably when I am going to get home. APPARENTLY, that wasn't a good enough answer and *I* obviously don't want to talk to them, I am not taking the situation srs, UHM.. EXCUSE MOI?
Is there an option in adobe to type stuff up in the file?
I'm applying for a scholarship and the application form needs to be downloaded from the website, its a pdf file. I could print it and hand write it but my hand writting is HORRIBLE and I want to type it up so it looks need , however it wont let me type or change anything in the file. Also when I go into Document properties it says filling of form fields : ALLOWED.
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?
Hi, I have a job interview next week. Usually I'd dress pretty formally for one, but I'm kind of wondering.. It's for forest evaluating, which means going through the woods of the region for two or three months. I'm not sure if a collared shirt and high heels would show I'm capable for that kind of tough work.. So what should I wear?
I have this friend and...she smells. I always try to tell her. I hint at it. She just goes on and on about how it's bad to take a shower every day. She showers once a week, maybe even less, even when she's on her period. How do I convince her to take a damn shower?
1. Do you have a paid account? 2. Do you think it's silly to have a paid account?
3. If you have a paid account, what is your favorite feature? 4. If you don't have a paid account, what paid feature do you wish was provided for free?
5. Why was I charged $19.90 for a year, as well as two $1 charges?
1. As of today, yes! 2. No!
3. The extra icons! I was recently introduced to LJ Hook and I am incredibly excited, now I need more More MORE! 4. I wish I could have had more icons, 15 was never enough, 20 would have been much better.
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?
