For the past 3 days I've been using Clean & Clear Advantage acne control kit. It's working pretty well but I just washed my face and noticed the skin around my eyes burning a little. Then I put on the spot treatment and that burned like a bitch! But it's working!! :( Is this doing more damage to my skin than good? Should I only use it once a day instead of twice?

The facewash has benzoyl peroxide in it and the moisturizer and spot treatment have salicylic acid.


My boyfriend got upset with me today because he saw that I didn't have anything mentioning him on my Myspace profile. I have that I'm In a Relationship and I have an album with 30+ pics of us together. Plus everyone on my friends list knows he's my boyfriend. Because I don't have anything mentioning him on MY profile, he wants to delete everything he has about me on HIS profile. I feel that he's acting childish. It's not like I'm trying to hide the fact that I have a boyfriend.

My question is: Does he have a right to be upset about this? If so, why?

If it matters I'm 20 and he'll be 24 this summer.

Okay, so I just posted a question, and checked back a minute later, and it was gone. What happened?

What are some good low calorie foods I can munch on while watching TV? (Besides celery...)
mulder pencils

kicked when you're down.

i just moved out of state a few weeks ago. i don't know anyone, don't have any friends, any money, etc etc. i missed my boyfriend a whole lot, which made matters worse.

then a few days ago he informs me that he is going to get back together with his ex, whom he doesn't really give a shit about, but will date anyways because she is there and i am not.

it probably hurt more than anything else i have ever gone through. there's a lot more back story but i guess that's enough to explain what's going on.

basically i am friendless and seriously heartbroken.

what can i do to help myself shake this?

If you call the police on someone and refuse to give your name, if they show up and the situation is fine or is lied about, can/will they track down the phone number called from and possibly call back or pursue it for a false alarm?

The situation would be a basic domestic violence call, nothing too serious, just a couple screaming and hitting each other every night after midnight.

Does anyone else feel like they are on an eternal and fruitless search for the perfectly written book that satisfies their every literary preference and desire?

I want a really classy, funny and enormously thick novel divided into sub-books with many chapters that draws from mathematics, science, and mystery. It has to reference fine arts in a non-clichéd and unique manner (like, no Da Vinci Code shit). It has to occasionally shift between forms (from prose to poetry, lyrics, or otherwise), include a few pages in the middle that have images, and maybe have some pictures scattered in the middle. I'd like the style to be somewhere between Nick Hornby, Scarlett Thomas, Ian McEwan and Jay McInerney. I'd like it to really skimp on the melodrama and instead make me cry for real maybe two times in the course of the plot. I'd like it if solving puzzles within it led to finding actual buried treasure in the real world. There must be a fair amount of really well-written and pornographic sex, but not too much. It is okay if it portrays drug use, but I don't want it to be lame and masturbatory descriptions of people getting high. The Internet should probably be in it somewhere.

Will I ever find this book?

Why does my browser have the find function open, with only the word "penis" typed into it?

Who to choose?

TQC, who should I choose?

The Japanese ex-fiancee?
The first fiancee who ran away to New Orleans to be with her lesbian lover?
The woman I have been on and off with since I was 19?
The little sister of my brother's friend?
The submissive who wants to be my slave and calls me Sir?
The unhappily married woman?

(Serious, non-serious, and just plain mean comments okay with me)

Does anyone have any tips on giving a dog injections?

My brother has to give our dog allergy injections every few days and since the dog now knows what's coming, it has been nearly impossible to give him his shots. He's about 30 lbs of muscle, and likes to bite when we try to hold him down.

If anyone have any experience or can give any insight, that would be amazing!

My son is potty training and this morning he decided to do something new....

I made some yummy pink and purple cupcakes because it's my daughter's first birthday today. Would you like one? I'm also planning on baking several more batches for her party on Friday (yay for public holidays!) as well as some banana muffins. Would you like some of those?

What colours should I do the next batch? I have yellow, blue, rose pink and green food colouring. I'd like to do at least two more batches, and I might do two colours per batch at most.

I'm pretty new to the decorating cupcake thing, so other than icing/frosting and sprinkles, what else should I do? The ones I did today are pretty much just practice cupcakes.

A wart question based on a previous question. If you have warts on your hands, can you pass it to another part of your body? Say, if you somehow passed it to your feet, would it show up as the little flat ones? (or if you had it on your feet could it show up on your hands) Can you give yourself genital warts through hand warts, or would it only happen if you slept with someone who had genital warts?

And a social question.
You go to events/activities with a friend. You're both trying to get to know new people but they're better at it than you are. Would you consider it rude if they sort of 'left you' standing around/at the edge of a group of people talking?

So I just got a baby guniea pig and I got him a water bottle. I filled it with water and for some reason it kept dripping constantly until it was empty.

Can a cat having a respiratory infection cause it to be unable to meow?

I got my cat from one of my friends after hers had a litter and was unable to take the cat until I could afford to take care of it. So she hung onto my kitty until I could take her and once I got her she hid for a few days as is normal for cats changing places of living and all was quiet. But a few weeks later I'm starting to realize that she doesn't meow. At all.

She'll open her mouth and it looks like she's meowing, sometimes there are squeaky sounds coming out, but she's not meowing. She can growl, and do the little hunting chitter, but that's about it.

So I asked my friend and she said that when Grendel was a kitten, she had stuff coming out of her nose and sneezed all the time, and it just went away on its own. They never took her to the vet so I don't know if my cat had a simple cold or if there was something seriously wrong with her. I called my vet to see if they could check her for something, but they said that unless she's showing symptoms again, there's nothing they could do to see about past problems.

So what the hell?

So, funny tl;dr story.

I was a grad student. Finished in December.

During my time there, I was a research assistant for one of the profs in the department. I got paid about 850/month to do that.

That money was direct deposited into my Canadian account, which I still have open, with money in it.

Just checked my balance, and my account looked noticeably larger.

Come to find out they didn't stop paying me when I graduated (I actually finished a term earlier than I was supposed to, but I assumed they'd stop paying me when I finished, because I was no longer working.)

Do I tell someone at the university that I might owe them a few thousand dollars?

Or do I go on, take the money and run (whoo whoo whoo)?

ETA: I'm going to tell them. Thanks guys.

What are your lingual pet peeves? Words, usages, or phrases that irritate you?

Here are a few of mine:

"to gift" someone something. There's a perfectly good word for the act of bestowing something on someone else, and it doesn't happen to be a noun. That's right, give. I give. I gave you something. Honestly.

Utilize for use. This is abominable military-speak and I hate that it's infected my family. My father sometimes slips into it without thinking and then bashes himself on the forehead, swears for a bit, and apologizes. The absolute worst: "Today we finalized the utilization of resource x..." Use. Use. Use. Use comes from a Latin verb, utilize from the Latin gerund. Why the hell would you turn a noun-that-was-a-verb into a verb again, instead of just using the verb? This has also led to an amusing number of instances in which people tried to come up with an adjectival form of utilize. Utilitous? Utile? How about just damn useful?

Ok, fix my life for me, TQC!

Your college requires an internship for your degree.  Your advisor gives you a list of a 3 places that may take interns this summer, and you apply to those places in addition to a few places you found out about on your own.  It seems that the places your advisor gave you are not interested in interns at all and that you are not going to be accepted as an intern to the places you applied to independantly.  

Would you just cold-call places to see if they'll take you, regardless of whether you think you'll get a decent experience there?

Would you be angry that your college requires an internship but does not have agreements with companies to take their interns?  Is it unreasonable that I am a bit perturbed about this situation?

If you were subletting an apartment what would make you really want a particular tenant? I'm trying to find a room and no one is responding to my inquiries, and I am physically unable to visit in person (which might be a big part of the reason).

What can I do to try to sweeten the deal, offer to pay two months advance rent with the deposit or something?

Soooo...I love cats. Love love love them. The problem is...I'm really allergic to them. I get really sneezy and my eyes swell up. It usually takes me a few days to feel completely back to normal. When I take my prescription allergy medicine (Allegra), it doesn't help. At all.

Has anyone ever been able to own a cat while having severe allergies? Did you find that a different allergy medicine helped? What about these allergy shots I hear a lot of people talk about, do they  help? Or am I never going to be able to have a kitty?

I'm making tuna noodle casserole for dinner and just realized I don't have any peas. What veggies do you like in your tuna noodle casserole?

I have some frozen green beans but that just seems weird and anti-delicious to me.

What are you having for your next meal of the day?

How do you make scrambled eggs come out light and fluffy? Mine always come out terrible and try to stick to the pan.

How come it was cheaper to buy a 2 pound jar of salt than it was to buy a small plastic salt shaker?

How long, how long will I slide?

Which lingual sins do you commit, TQC?

I'm really bad about mixing up aggravate and irritate, and less and few. My father always jumps all over me when I mess up with the latter two words, and my mother when I mess up with the former.

Do you talk with your mouth full of food? or chew with your mouth open? Why?

Do you have friends who do this? Does it bother you?

2:  Is sex better or worse when you're stressed out?

3:  I was rejected today because my husband has a cold.
4:  I'm really enjoying the Strawberry & Banana V8 Fusion.

What should I wear to go horse riding, TQC? I don't often ride, so I don't have any special riding clothes, and I haven't been for years, so I can't remember what I wore last time. What sort of things would be good to wear from what I already have? Merits of jeans vs trackpants? What sort of shoes?

How would you feel if you found out your doctor was a heavy smoker?

What if he or she was a heavy drinker?

Smoked a lot of pot?

Snorted cocaine on a regular basis?

Had regular, unprotected sex with multiple partners?

Would these things make it more difficult for you to take his or her advice about health related behaviors (drugs, alcohol, sex, exercise, etc) seriously? Or do you think that a physician's health choices have nothing to do with how he or she educates and treats patients?

What are your insecurities about why a guy/girl wouldn't be into you?

For me, I'm scared that I'll bore the crap out of the guy because I'm so school-oriented and am so obsessed with doing well. Therefore I talk about it a lot, which I'm starting to realize bores people. I'm just scared that I'll bore a guy because I'm always studying, which is something I myself like to do, but I'm scared that
