my boyfriend and i have been speaking about marriage and proposal a bit here and there. i already own the ring i would like to be married in. i want to change the stone from a fake emerald to a real one.
we have two issues
how can he propose if the ring is already on my hand, what does he do? just knee and ask me to marry him? he pulled a jim halpert on me when we were leaving dinner and he barely got out "dakotah" and i said "omg no!!" and smacked his shoulder, cause i knew what he was doing. now he says he is worried that i will do the same thing when he really wants to propose.
so three issues.
what can he do to propose so i know he really means it?
how can he propose when i have the ring on my finger?
how expensive are emeralds? mine is about the size of a pencil eraser, and about as thick as a nickel, maybe a little thicker. any idea how much that would be?

Has anybody ever worked at a Kids R Kids, or any other corporate daycare? I just had to leave my daycare job of 5 years (a privately owned amazing one) and am starting a job at a Kids R Kids this month. I was wondering what makes them special or if there was something you hated about your job that I should look out for.

Do you actually enjoy reading?

If yes, do you feel insulted (for lack of better words... feel free to apply your own negative emotion here) by people who claim to not like reading?

If you do not enjoy reading, why?

I love reading, and I don't know why, but to hear someone say "I DON'T LIKE READING" makes me feel so... sorry for them, but disgusted at the same time.

Is it inappropriate to be in the buff under your graduation regalia?

Regardless, would you do it?

I'm graduamatating from college on Sunday, and our robes are bright blue and tacky, so I was thinking nudity might make me feel better about the whole thing.

My cat scratches a lot, He has a few scratching post around the house.

I have tried the spray that is supposed to keep them from scratching, but it never worked.

My boyfriend mentioned de-clawing him, but after some research I decided de-clawing is not the route I want to go.

When I was researching I found a product called "soft paws."

1. Have you ever used soft paws? 
2. Was it uncomfortable for the cat?
3. Do you think it would be uncomfortable?
4. What other methods can i use to keep my cat from scratching my furniture to pieces?

You're brought to a mine field. You're at the most narrow portion of the mine field. Across the field, there's a Porsche, and in the trunk there's $5,000,000. Keys are in the car.

You're told that it's fairly dense here, that there's a pressure point every 20 feet or so in every direction, but you obviously can't see them. Do you cross the mine field?

Just you and your selected partner, skin-on-skin, sexual intercourse until someone orgasms (no early withdrawls). You do know that it's been 3 months since their last STD test.

I have to dress up as a literary character for a party I am going to.  I am stumped for good ideas.  At this point I'm thinking bedroom slippers, nightgown and Victorian-esque robe and go as Wendy Darling.

P.S. I really would love to go as Jane Eyre, but I don't have the costume, or the time to make one.

Tattoos

I have a tattoo on my leg that is starting to annoy me.  It's huge and it's meaning is no longer significant to me.  I've looked online and found things such as tat b gone and wrecking balm but they're UBER expensive.

2) What to your knowledge is the best, cheapest method of tattoo removal (excluding a cheese grater of course) Do you think there will be more effective methods in the future worth waiting for?

TQC, i'm about to get my first D. normally, i'd be just all "LOL SUMMER SCHOOL", but it's second semester senior year.

teachers have shoved down my throat that college will tell me "LOL NOPE" if i don't pass all my classes, but i'm seriously worried that i may not be able to pass AP chem (which i was stupid enough to take in the first place). I overqualified for the college i'm getting into (San Diego State University lets you in easy if you're a native san diegan), but it got like a billion applicants this year.

if i get one D in senior year in a ridiculously hard class, will SDSU tell me to go the fuck home even if i've already been accepted, or will they have any mercy on my soul? (theoretically, i CAN bump it up to a C-, but it's going to take an assload of work, kill my social life, and drive me insane).

TQC, tell me what to do

We just finished moving for my husband's work. It makes enough to pay our bills so long as we don't eat or go anywhere.

So, I've begun my job hunt, with some worry. I'm about 24 weeks pregnant. And I could see employers passing me over because they don't want to deal with the whole maternity leave thing, not to mention that I'll need time for doctor's appointments. So, I applied at a temp agency, and some part time jobs.

The temp agency (Office Team, for what it's worth) really likes me and feels they can place me in various temp jobs. I also have an interview for a "permanent" part time job tomorrow.

Should I cancel the interview and just rely on Office Team, since I am not sure I'd be a good fit for a permanent position at this time?

I am studying in Spain for a month in June. I have never been out of the country, so I don't know exactly what I should do financially. I have called my bank to make sure my credit card and my debit card will be accessible while I am in Spain, but I've been told not to rely solely on debit and credit cards. The director of my program said to get some traveler's cheques and to carry cash, but I've heard that carrying cash is bad because it can get stolen much easier. 

My questions: 

Have you ever travelled to a foreign country?

How did you handle your money (Did you get some of it in traveler's cheques, some of it in cash, and some of it on your credit/debit card?) 

What would you recommend I do?

Clearly, I'm an idiot. I received an invitation to a wedding. It came with an RSVP card. It goes like this:

Blahblah tell us if you're coming
By this date

M____________________
Number Attending ______

___ Dinner option 1
___ Dinner option 2
___ Dinner option 3


So my questions are:

1. wtf is the first line for with just the M? I'm assuming it's for a name but..what?
2. It was addressed to Mr. and Mrs. My Husband (which is a bit degrading, but that's another post..), so how do I fill in our names?
3. It's also folded in half, with a blank part inside. Am I supposed to write something in there? If so, what?

I seriously hate all this. There's a reason I only invited 10 people to my wedding.

Are there any LJ communities (or websites) where I can sell/give away books I don't want, preferably with a minimum of effort (ones that aren't ebay or amazon)? I tried to do an interest search on LJ but I have the flu and my brain fails atm. D: Google search gave me mostly places for used textbooks.

Most of them are hardback "book club" versions, if that makes a difference.

Edit: Ideally, a website would be one where I could unload the whole lot of them without having to sell to individuals, does a place like that even exist?

Do used bookstores take these book club editions?

If your country changed it's system of measurement to either the American standard system or the metric system (whatever is different from what it is now), how easily do you think you would be able to adjust?

If one of the requirements for a job is 1 year of work experience, and I had been working part-time forever, but only full-time since July, does that disqualify me? There's also a related position with this organization that doesn't require a year of work experience (and only requires an Associate's...I'm 3/4 of the way to a Master's). Can I apply for both jobs?

People who know graphics stuff:

I'm doing a project and I'm limited to about 20 different specific colours, and each one gives the pantone, rgb, cymk numbers for them. (I'm working with cymk). It says that tints and screens can be used if we need.

Tints and screens are just adjusting the K/black up and down, right?

I remember it coming up in the class portion (this is work for the lab), and I think I'm right, I'd just hate my work to go to crap because I didn't use the okay colours.

mad about shoe

I'm going to be walking over a lot of cobblestones in Europe this summer. As a result, I need to find a pair of durable and v. cushioned running shoes. But I also want them to be non-tacky--either solid black or at least without florescent tones/neons/bright white checkmarks. Do these shoes exist?

Pictures appreciated!

Does any one know a good website that you can get statistics help on? Specifically with probability?

I'm working on homework and can't seem to find a good website. The book and my notes are not helping.

What kind of snake is this?

Collapse )

Since the color is kind of odd (gorram cell phone cameras), I'll say it's kind of a dark reddish-orange. He(?) was about 7" tip to tip. He had some serious trouble slithering on the concrete, so I moved him to dirt under a bush. And I don't even *like* snakes. Given his size and very small head, I wasn't worried about him being venomous.
