Have you ever been in a psych ward as a patient before? If so, did you like arts and crafts time?

The only reason I ask is because my sister is in one right now and they get to make all sorts of cool stuff like sock monkeys, Ugly dolls, jewelery boxes and leather stuff!!! I'm so jealous!!!

For those of you who have recently been accepted and those who have attended university, did you have conditions on your acceptance? If so, what were they?

My friend's boyfriend just got accepted to university and insists he has no conditions on his acceptance. I thought all universities had at least a grade condition, so I'm trying to see if there's actually some places that don't or if he just has no idea what he's talking about.

EDIT: I'm in Canada, so we don't have community college. Just university and college.

public urination

So my neighbor, who lives BEHIND my house, spends a lot of time right on the property line (no fence) raking and cleaning shit up and we usually don't care. The other day my entire family was sitting in the living room watching TV and looked outside the window to watch the dude whip it out and take a leak out in public. Now I understand that if you gotta go.. you gotta go, but he could've gone behind some bushes or something and it wasn't like he was far from a bathroom. he did again the other day and it's really disturbing to see especially since my dog plays around there. what should i do?

PMS-like moods.

Girls, what do you do when you're having one of those "crazy emotional bitch" days that we're all prone to?
I don't want to go out or hang out with people, because I really don't want to piss anyone off/get pissed off, but I've got no idea what I should do to kill time.

ETA: Maybe I should've worded this better. "Crazy emotional bitch" can range from getting upset and crying at the drop of a hat/for no reason to getting angry over things way too easily. So, if you get emotional or angry, feel free to tell me what you do to pass time.

sinus rinse

I'm almost certain I have a sinus infection. I will be calling the doctor first thing in the morning for an appointment. I've tried Mucinex, Sudafed, and a few other things but nothing really helps. I've been reading about sinus rinses, specifically the NeilMed ones. It's 1 AM here. Would it be worth it for me to blow dry my hair, brave the dark, and get myself to the drugstore to get one of these?

If you have ever done any kind of sinus rinse, did it hurt? Was it really as fabulous as everyone claims?

Icon choices

I always experience a bit of cognitive dissonance when I discover that lj users are a different sex than their icon. Do other people feel that too? Not that I particularly care what sex people are, but I can't help but hold a male or female image in mind.

To those who use such icons, was the sex of the person pictured an influence in your choice, or is it totally irrelevant to you? Do you identify with the icon, or do you use it exclusively for other reasons, such as humor?

What was the last nightmare you had?

These mobsters were after me because they said they liked my style. They initiated me by cutting my arm with a blade for some reason. They aid i had to prove myself in this fight against someone else and it was like a street brawl using just fists and kickboxing moves. I ran away instead and then woke up to one of them outside my house with a shotgun but instead they gave me a virus until i joined their squad. And the virus was the color you get on nasty bruises like greeny purple growing off my hands. Ugh :(

I'm sure you all missed me and would love to know where I have been...

A few days ago I went to the casino, long story short I made a few thousand bucks from less then $100, and I've payed off all my debt, bought a huge bag of weed, a few bottles of absinthe, and am holding on the the rest of the cash since it'll be nice to have a few bucks when I move to Savannah this fall. Awesome shit.

So I ask you...

Whats the most you have ever made at the casino? how much did you start with?

You (like I did) put $60 on 26, and win, $2000ish bucks, what do you do now? Mind you you've been on a huge winning streak?

What would you do if you came across a large amount of money from gambling tomorrow?

Nose ring question

I just got my nose pierced on March 5th. My nose actually took quite well to the piercing, didn't bleed, didnt really get sore. I've been cleaning it everyday and if I realized I skipped a day, I would wash it an extra time the next sleep sched. is odd anyway so I figure that shouldn't matter. I make sure to rinse very well and dry each time and I've been very careful with it.

What I'm wondering is if anyone on here has a nose piercing and experienced the outside of their nose, where the piercing is, the skin is getting hard...kinda looks like it's wanting to bubble only gets red when I clean it, I guess from moving it around cuz I'm supposed to twist it around. The skin on the inside is getting a little hard this like part of the healing process or did I do something wrong? A friend of mine's nose ring pretty much rejected her nose and popped out one night :/ I hope that's not happening to me.


How To Get Her Back

So last night my girlfriend and I broke up. I was upset, trying to use logic to win her back but when that didn't work, I let a few hours go by and then I acted cool with it...telling her how i understood where she was cause I had been there with other Ex's(on the reverse end)...and I knew what she dumped me for wasn't who I am.....which threw her off...because I know she expected me to be devistated but in my experience this never works with women. They just register begging, crying and pleading as pathetic.

We've had small problems for a while now, mainly because we've both been increasingly very open about our jelousy. I wasn't orginally like this and thus I think the break will be good for us both to get to better places and control BUT I would like to still have a shot with her.

I want to maintain a freindship that will eventually lead us back to dating. Does anyone have any advice ?

She SAYS she wants space, time to figure out what she wants, and has not ruled out getting back together..(she normally rules this out with other guys)..I know this has come about because of my freaking out any time she hangs out with another guy alone.. (which this time around, it was her ex that had taken her virginity and vice I was with good reason peaved...)But I went overboard this time, leading to our doom.

(which i note, she does the same to me But I don't really get upset like she does being usually the more rational of us two)

I know had I not done this we'd still be together, I'd just have less of a reason to work on things and get back to my mellow.."have fun, I trust you" self from our first 3 months of dating...

can you give me advice .. Like what to do and not to do. I'm giving her the space, but I'm not giving it to her to the point that I avoid her, I'm being calm while still showing I still Love her, but i don't know what else I should do.

what movie is this? i think she might be blonde.

All the jobs I've ever had in the past was minimum wage and I worked in the food industry. I never lasted more than 3 months, so I was trying to avoid the food industry. But then I get a chance to get a job that pays 5 dollars more an hour than minimum wage.

My question is, would you accept a job that you know you will hate, even though there's a high chance of quitting? Even though you're making 5 dollars MORE than you usually make, ever.

So there is a movie my crazy father use to watch.

I was really young so I don't know how old the kids were...I've always wondered what movie this was. Mostly because it seemed like a freaking crazy movie.

1.Do you ever get slightly paranoid when a helicopter flies over your house?

2.Did you get sent to a religious school when you were young?

2b. Are you horribly scarred for life because of going there?
2c. Or do you hold a grudge against people who tried to shove the religion down your throat and told you that if your beliefs didn't match theirs then you were going to hell?

my answers:
1. just a bit. i watch a lot of scifi, lol.
2. K-12 Mennonite/Christian school. My experience was not so great. They screwed me over big time.
I didn't get help with concepts I had trouble learning till too late, and that was only after my mom had to go in and forcefully insist. By that time it really was pointless. I harbor a boat load of resentment to pretty much the entire school except for one teacher.
In middle school I learned that all I needed to do to pass Bible class was to make up some bullshit that would make them happy.

so. yeah. major resentment. a lot more than i realized it seems, now seeing what i wrote. woo.

I've never encountered this problem before. I'm trying to post, and I can't get to rich text editor. It appears to be stuck on html mode, and i can't find a way to switch it back. Do you know how?

*edit again*
i'm only still here because this is fucking ridiculous.

I have carefully crafted entries of many many many pictures, art journal entries that i manually resized until they would sit next to each other and look good. These entries are private, but i want to transfer these images-that are already exactly how i want them-to other entries. I've been doing this for a long time. In rich-text editor, I can copy all the images from one entry and copy them onto another, exactly how i already fixed them up, with only one copy/paste motion, and without having to fuck around with the size anymore. I can't copy/paste like this onto html mode, maybe cause i didn't post in html mode to begin with.

So the question is, how do i change from html mode to rich-text editor? i've already tried to figure it out on lj, but if you're so much smarter and more computer-savvy than i am, why don't you go find the answer and tell me. make yourself useful; help a stranger in need instead of being an asshole for no good reason.

You know on newer PCs how they have the sidebar where you can have the clock, post-its, weather etc. Well a few weeks ago my internet stopped worked so the tech support logged on and remotely controlled the computer and fixed the problem...only my sidebar went away. I can go into the computer and click on it and it returns to my desktop but it won't stay there after I shut off the computer-when I turn it back on it is gone again :( Can anybody tell me how to get it back SO IT STAYS?

Also, again from the tech people-after she was done my Support icon was messed up-I got that image you get when a picture won't load-but the actual program still worked fine. It's been that way for a while only today I noticed the icon is back to normal, not sure when it happened since I pretty much got used to it and didn't notice but it had to have been within the last day or two. I didn't DO anything different-just downloaded a couple of games from online, but I don't see how that would do anything. Does anybody know what caused my icon to come back?

I still need to take English (ugh). Help me decide what to do! These are my options:

A) Take English at the university (where I'm taking all of my other classes). It will fit into my schedule nicely except that I will have FIVE classes on Tuesdays & Thursdays. This means 7 hours of class, nonstop, on those days.

B) Take English at the community college on Saturday mornings. This is a fine option, because CC classes are generally easier, meaning I'll have to devote even less time to this class. I did this same thing recently, and it was well worth it because I treated it like a blow-off class and still got an A. However, the class is full and I will have to go through the trouble of trying to get an override, which the teacher may not even be willing to do.

C) Take English at the community college online. I really, really hate online courses, and I avoid them at all costs. But, it would be a CC course, so I'm hoping it won't be the sort of class that will fuck me over. I wouldn't have to worry about fitting it into my schedule or being on time to class because, duh, it's online. Plus, when they do transfers from the CC to the university, only the credits go through, not the grades -- so I can get a C and as long as I pass, it won't fuck with my GPA.

One of the people specifically said "don't do any work until you talk to me" and they other didn't think to say it (because it's always "what has been done"). These two different people also went to two different shops. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

Who else thinks that jassalol is fucking annoying?

ETA: I realize most of you will not know who she is, but I'm hoping someone will. If you want to know why she's annoying, look at her userinfo. It's not a huge big deal or anything, I just want some reassurance that I'm not alone in being annoyed by her.

Does the Suns volume affect the shape/speed/anything about the earth orbit?

What if by some strange twist of fate it became tiny and super dense and everything else stayed the same, would our orbit change?

This question is for already married or soon to be married brides in the community. What song did you walk down the aisle to?


What song are you having played as you walk down the aisle?

I am having a difficult time deciding between "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" or "Canon in D".

Renting a house

My fiance and I desperately want a house that my uncle owns. We are only interested in renting it, because we plan on moving out of the state within the next few years. Said house has had no one living in it for at least 3 years. My uncle (and aunt) are procrastinators. They've been talking about selling the house for years... but have never actually done it. My fiance and I recently decided that we'd like to move into a bigger place by July of this year (shortly after the wedding). We immediately thought of the empty house. When I approached my uncle about it, he acted somewhat interested, but said he needed to check with my aunt. I brought it up again yesterday, and my uncle said that my aunt has yet to give him an answer (although he still seemed interested). However, he said that he thinks she'll say that they need to sell it right away before the recession starts. Buh? Apparently they don't watch the news.

The housing market in our town is just as shitty as the rest of the nation. Within a block of that house, there are 4 other houses that have been for sale for months. The odds of them making any sort of profit at the moment are slim to none. I've been trying to tell them that they should rent it to us for a couple years in the hopes that the housing market will look up again. I just need to push some concrete information their way (and have them talk to my current landlord, who will give a glowing recommendation on my behalf). What would you do in this situation, TQC? Consider it a loss and move on? Look up some facts to show that they're better off renting the house to us, rather than attempting to sell it? Or just continually suck up in the hopes that they'll take pity on their (soon-to-be) newlywed niece? Do any of you have any recommendations for sites to find good articles to present to my uncle? I hate to just give up, because it's difficult to find a nice house to rent that will allow pets. :-\

Additionally... Chocolate easter bunnies are evil. y/y?

ETA: I haven't been harassing my uncle about the house. I only ask him about it when I run into him (which is pretty rare). I didn't want anyone to think I was smothering the poor man lol.

1. Oh so hypothetical social etiquette question: Imagine you live in a dorm, and two other people who live a few doors from you have been writing nice things on the board on your door. However, you have pretty much nothing else to do with them and don't know them well at all. You decide to ask them to have dinner with you (via writing on their door). Are you being nice, or creepy?

2. Worst song you've heard in the past 24 hours?

I left work early because I felt like I was going to pass out. Have you ever passed out at work before? What do you find to be the worst part?

There have been a lot of posts recently asking about what your sick foods are. Is anyone else not very picky when they are sick?

Hey TQC. I've been away from my computer for the past few days. What have I missed? Did TQC boycott the boycott?

Also, because I was on a plane today I was wondering: Do you have to have a partner to be legit in the Mile High Club?

Tummy twitches?

Just a couple days ago I started experiencing twitching in my lower right abdomen. It's not painful or anything, just a little annoying. It feels like a rapid eye twitch, a kind of fluttering feeling. I've been trying to google, but the only thing I can come up with is either it's just gas or I'm well into a pregnancy. I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant, but I'm still kind of freaking out. My boyfriend says he gets tummy twitches like that sometimes but I'm still uneasy about it...

Does anyone else get tummy twitches like that?
Should I get this checked out?
My period is due the middle of this week, should I just wait before I freak out?

I bought potatoes, and peeled it. But I apparently forgot to buy the premade seasoning from the food store. I don't want to go back to the store just for one thing. Any suggestions on what I can make here at home with sliced, peeled potatoes?

1) What is the weirdest thing or combination of things you've eaten as a meal recently?

2) For those in college or that went to college; did you ever transfer institutions? Why and how many times? Isn't it a pain?

3) To keep notes do you prefer notebooks, binders, portfolios, laptops, other?

4) Is there anything you do that makes you feel guilty but you do it anyway? If so, what?

5) How many hours of use do you consider too much time spent on:

1) Wise plain chips, saurkraut, sour cream, and hot sauce - yea, together. haha
2) Yes. First time was transferring from a community college, and now, I hate the school I transferred to. It sucks.
3) Depends. Binders, Portfolios -usually.


I'm taking time off from my junior year of college in Providence to get a job, make some art, and recuperate my frizzle-frazzled mind.

Meanwhile, my lease is up in a couple of months, and I'm considering starting/participating in a gallery space in some of the rehabilitated industrial/warehouse areas in town. It would be some sort of commercial lease.

1.) Is it an enormous pain in the ass, in terms of paperwork, taxes, inspectors, or whatever else, to rent industrial as opposed to residential space? (Living would either be under-the-table or probably an addition to the lease.) Am I just going to have a nervous breakdown instead of having an awesome time working with my community?

2.) If I do go with this plan, will you come to my gallery openings? I promise there will be liquor.

3.) If I go one step further and actually rent a storefront (ground floor, with a window, etc.), do the terms of that type of lease automatically change/become even more terrifying based on zoning/whatever?


Stankin' ass bitches need soap and water.

Soap and water, soap and water, water water water water water....

1)  What are your bathing habits like?
Whenever I bathe, I take a bath for the shaving part (I'm CLUMSY and I'd waste so much water if I did it in the shower) and stuff, and a super quick shower for my hair (I hate putting my head under water/getting my face wet).

2) What song is stuck in your head?

Cheese and salad

What's your favourite way to use goat cheese?

My gram gave me a big log/stick of it. I found a salad recipe (although it's not really a recipe, I guess. What would you call it?) on the back of my dressing bottle that includes baby spinach, walnuts, mandarin oranges, and red onions, but I don't have any of that. And I hate mandarin oranges.

How awesome is bleu cheese? I've been using it in salad: frisee, radicchio, baby romaine, red onions,carrots, walnuts, craisins, and raspberry hazelnut vinaigrette. I'm going to get some more tomorrow and slice up some baked chicken into it.

What's your favourite salad?

If I gave you a plane ticket, and told you that you HAD to go to another country that you've never visited, where would you go?

While on the plane, the flight attendant hands you a magical menu.  You have to order a food and drink that you've never had before.  What do you order?

When you arrive, you're told that you get to stay anywhere you want -- but yup, it has to be a type of housing that you've never stayed in before.  Sleeping outside even counts.  Where do you stay?

You get a free personalized tour!  Where do you go in this unknown country?

You need to document your trip with something -- not photos or filming.  How do you show people where you've been?

It's time to go :(  On the flight back, you're given a choice of movies.  Again, you have to pick something you've never seen before.  What do you watch?

You're home.  Who do you call first to talk about your crazy adventure?

I just got a shirt from JCPenny (the brand is Mixit) and I want to try to find a picture of it online to show to my friend. (I'd take a picture myself and post it, but I don't have access to a camera.) It still has the tag attached, but I've lost all the cardboard tags that came with it. Anyone know how I can find it?

I say, good sir or ma'am, have you seen my pipe? I seem to have misplaced it. It was an heirloom, you see, from my grandfather's grandfather, passed on dutifully to each of the male children as we came of age. We all enjoy a good pipe, you see.

Which type of lined paper do you prefer to use, College Ruled or Wide Ruled?

I prefer College Ruled since my handwriting is kind of small. I feel obligated to use the whole line space, so with Wide-Ruled, I end up writing really big and loopy (also read: girly).
