Can anyone find the actual poem called:
Cunts (Upon Receiving the Swingers Life Club Memberships Solicitation) by John Updike.

I want a friend to read it on here, and I've been searching and all I get is people talking about the poem, not the actual poem itself.
 
Dave Gahan sweat

frequent pee-ers club.

if you have to pee alot, and i mean about once and hour or sometimes less, what do you do on road trips?

how does having to pee all the time influence you when you have to go out shopping/with firends/whathaveyou?

how do you accommodate this in everyday life?

does it affect how you feel about yourself? (ps - did i use affect correctly or should it have been effect?  i don't know the rules!)

thanks to all!

EDIT - are any of you on medication for this type of thing?  what med?  does it work?  side effects?  thanks again!

For the US people:

1. Do you ever use the dollar coins instead of bills?
2. Do you like the dollar coins (the idea of them, not the actual design on them)?
3. Do you think the government should get rid of dollar bills and instead only use the coins? Why?

Do you have a weird sense of humor?

Have you ever rotfl when no one else laughed?

Care to share some jokes and/or pictures that you thought were funny and no one else did? 



I recently showed a couple of my friends this macro and one of my friends didn't laugh.  I said "What?  Not funny?  I don't hear you laughing."  He said "It's funny... I smiled.  Isn't that enough?"  It happens a lot.  I'll think something is HILARIOUS and lmao and others will be like "I don't get it" or "It's not that funny."

You know those walks to benefit different diseases like Great Strides for CF or March of Dimes?

Don't they seem kind of backwards? Like, shouldn't people have to sit and breath through coffee stirrer straws for a couple hours instead of taking a nice long walk?

It seems every so slightly calloused. 'Nyanya, I can walk, I can run, I CAN DO ANYTHING YOU CAN'T DO BETTERRRRRRR!"

Is there an effective way to get my mother to stop saying the same sentence 12 different ways without coming off as a jerk?

ex: the passenger seat of the car is dangerous. It is a deadly seat to sit in. The backseat is safer. People have died from sitting in the passenger seat. I would prefer if you not sit in the front seat. (Why didn't you just tell me that?)

My grandmother says it's from when my granddad lectured my mom when she was a kid. (Which irrationally worried me that I might torture my future children with lectures.)

1. are you an organ donor? if you are, are you donating all your organs?
if you aren't, do you have a specific reason?

has anyone heard of first-hand accounts of paramedics or hospital workers who "don't care" as much about people who are organ donors, because if they die, they don't need to "save" their organs as much?

hey, and don't sass me about the quotations. those are the best words i can use to explain what i'm trying to say.



2. i'm in a really really mixed up lovey dovey situation. i'll use letters to save the embarrassment of either of these people reading this.

E= my good friend, has a huge crush on J.
J= we just met in january and we're okay friends, but we just don't talk/hang out that often.
K= me. stuck in the middle. :(
(i should say that we're all lesbians, to save later confusion.)

okay, so J just got out of a three year long relationship, two weeks ago. since then, she's been flirting with K, E, and another girl. E, being lonely, has taken J's bait and has fallen for her, haaard. i think that J likes the attention, but doesn't care who it's from. J apparently has a huge crush on me, and i am not interested in the slightest bit.

so, what do i do, TQC? i can't be the one to tell E that J doesn't like her and instead has a big crush on me. that'll break her heart. and, i don't want to have the "hey, you're very immature and just GOT OUT OF A THREE YEAR LONG RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU NO I WONT BE YOUR REBOUND GIRL and you're moving back home in a week and i am not attracted to you etc etc." i do feel bad that this is probably going to end badly for E, and i don't feel like it's my place to say/do anything about it. halp!

What should I call my soon-to-be ex-husband in conversation with others? That's quite a mouthful, and I don't feel comfortable calling him my husband anymore, obviously.

Do you think I will have success finding a few college guys to help me move my stuff on a weekday? I'd offer them pizza and beer.

Should I go to the doctor?

I think I broke my pinky toe last night.  It's red, swollen, and bruised.  It's a little sore when I walk on it, but it's the worst to have it curl inward. 

1. Should I go to the doctor?  From my understanding they can't do much.  Plus I don't want to spend 60 bucks just to have them tell me, "take pressure off it, and take ibuprofen."

2. Is there anything else I could do to help it?

Sorry about all of the wedding questions. I just hate all of the wedding planning communities. Besides, you guys are funnier.

My fiance and I are getting married (obviously), and I've been thinking about printing up portions of my personal blog and making little booklets to place on the tables at the reception. All of the entries are written in a first-person, almost story-like manner. They cover pretty much everything to our first date, all the way up until present times.

Should I do this? Do you think it's hokey or cute?

Edit: For those of you who care, the blog is aifeala. Too personal for comfort?

I didn't want to do Honours this year because I felt that I'd just be missing out on life. I wanted to do cool things/self improvement things this year.
What, feasibly, should I do/consider doing? No, travelling around Australia/Europe is not an option.
I have a few ideas but I really should think about this more. Yeah I know some people will look at this and go 'um, shouldn't you decide for yourself?' but, it's not like I'm going to just do what you say, it's more I want to think about some things, big or small, that could be good to do.
So, any ideas?

Big, small, online, real life, entertaining/trivial, serious... What'd make a good year?

2. The game will be released on June 3. Does that mean that Amazon will ship it on that day, or will they ship it beforehand so that I will get it ON June 3rd?

1. Do you credit the person who made your LJ icon/icons?

I never used to but I try to now. I hate it when I steal someone's icon and they didn't credit anyone so I can't XD

2. How are you icons organised?

Mine are by username (here) but now I have too many and it's hard to find the one I want!

3. How many LJ icons do you have on your computer?

I have 560ish.

I live in a city (If you could call it that) with my girlfriend. We are completely broke, we just graduated from high school and we are really interested in moving out of here to get our lives started. By started I mean, getting a decent job and attending a nice college.
There is no opportunity here, it's basically desolate. We have no idea where to go to.

Do you have any advice on what our next step should be?

So, tomorrow I am buying a laptop. I have about $600 for said laptop. (It's going to be just a laptop. I love my desktop, but I need something to travel with!)

I took some medicine for my sinuses nearly six hours ago. Now my eyes are dialating in and out when I look in the mirror and I'm light and heavy-headed at the same time. Did I take too much? I weigh 95 pounds, so should I have taken a children's dose? It's got acetaminophen, guaifenesin, phenylephrine HCI, and dextromethorphan HBr in it.

So I'm throwing a party at my place tonight and I decided to make jello shots. I'm expecting about 20-30 people, but so far I've only made 23 shots (random I know).

I've never had or made these before, so I'm wondering how many does it take to feel something?
Should I make more? If so, how many more? There will also be 6 cases of beer to drink and for pong.

EDIT: I forgot to mention people are also bringing me liquor as it is my birthday party.

When I go to a spa for a massage, I always tip my massage therapist. However, I've recently been prescribed massage therapy by my doctor. My insurance will be paying for it, and I'll be going to a massage therapist who has an office in a building with a couple of chiropractors. Should I be tipping there, as well, or is that unexpected in the way that no one would tip a chiropractor or a physical therapist?

TQC my ~vacation~ is in your hands..

okay, so my best friend and i had decided that we would be going to San Francisco, CA instead of Washington, D.C later on in the year right? WELL.. things have changed. :p [no worries, she's still my best friend lol]

SO now i have to decide whether or not i should still venture out to SF by myself OR go elsewhere.. i am thinking about San Antonio, TX (where another one of my best friends lives).. but i am pretty much open to any suggestions that you might have. nothing outside of the country.. maybe next year. ;)

I just purchased copy of Saw IV. I love these movies!

My questions are:

1) Which of the Saw movie endings surprised you the most?
2) If you could set up a trap for someone to teach them to appreciate their life who would you choose?
3) If you found out one of your exes had committed a serious crime and their defence team called on you as a character witness would you agree and go to court for them?
4) Lyriq Bent or Costas Mandylor?

1. My Google-fu has failed me. Where is the site where they list "Official" holidays for each and every day of the year?

I'm doing a project for my daughter (a countdown until our family vacation) and all I found was "365 Reasons to Drink".

2. How the hell did I gain five pounds in two days?

3. I live in a kind of crappy neighborhood. There are walking paths around town. Is it worth the time and gas to drive somewhere to walk, or should I buy a treadmill?

4. What else was I going to ask?

I went to the dentist today bout the wisdom tooth I've been complaining about (if anyone remembers at all). He showed me the x-rays of my teeth and I thought it would be big because it hurts so much, but it' barely even big enough to be out of my gums, it's so tiny! How can something so small be so painful?

One of my dogs has gotten very mouthy when she plays. She's a labrador, so she's already pretty mouthy, but earlier when we were playing she bit my hand and broke the skin a little. When she bites we say "no" and stop playing with her, or we put her outside until she calms down a little, but this isn't helping at all. How can we stop her from doing this without being aggressive with her?

suspended license question

So I got this letter in the mail today that I had to sign for. It said that my license was immediately suspended and that I had to turn them in immediately and also pay 210 dollars AND go take a defensive driving course. The offenses took place 2 years ago and I paid both of the tickets. one was for not using my blinker, the other was for speeding. Okay, if this happened two years ago -- why are my license just now getting suspended for it? It doesn't make any sense what so ever and I don't think it's fair. Both of them were 3 points each on my license. I live in GA.

Television.

Recently the movie Two if by Sea had crossed my mind, and a few days later, at some odd hour, it was on TBS. The next night, Pay it Forward was on TBS, again at an odd hour, which I had before thought of. A few days ago, I thought of When Harry Met Sally twice and later, during the early a.m. again, it was on Oxygen. (But they cut out baby fish mouth so I stopped watching.) I thought of Christine a couple days ago and early this morning I watched it on AMC. Even further, during a commercial break I thought about eating tomatoes and a commercial for tomatoes came on. No joke. And then I was all :( because I found out the actor who played Arnie is now bald and a commercial for Hair Club came on.

We're sitting down to have a beer and all of these kids are coming in! There were infants, but also two kids who looked to be in the 8-10 age.

Since when are bar rules that you have to be 21 or under the age of 10? And why the hell are people bringing small, small babies to bars?

Since it's for World Earth Day, the theme is Green shirts and I think we were suppose to freeze with poses that symbolizes environmentalism like "Have sunglasses on and a paper fan to symbolise global warming or Freeze with a group of people picking up litter to symbolise the pollution"

So...my brother has this friend who's always acted like he was 'interested' ever since we first met (around 5 years ago). Tonight he invited my brother over to play Magic the Gathering, and when my brother said no, he invited me. (For the record, the friend and I chat, but I'm not interested in him that way.) Nice kid, but not exactly my type, so I made a TOTALLY LAME excuse about having to go to church tomorrow. It's true...but doesn't make a good excuse at 8pm.
Is there any way to not antagonize him or hurt his feelings while still staying single for the next month or so before I head back to school?

I'm in the process of trying to find a new job. There are a few job openings at a place where an acquaintance of mine works. I asked her about them and she actually suggested I apply for a position that I hadn't seen listed yet. She told me that she would most likely be doing the first interviews for that position and told me to bring my resume directly to her. The next time I saw her/gave her my resume she told me that she had told her boss (the one in charge of doing the hiring) that she "may have found someone" (meaning me).
