Do you have a hard time falling asleep on Sunday nights?

Ever since Elementary school, I've gotten probably half of the sleep that I usually get. I think I slept all of two hours last night and now I'm exhausted and have two finals and a job interview today

Are you hungry as soon as you wake up or does it take some time before you can eat breakfast without feeling sick?

I dragged my butt out of bed after weathering an awful night with a stomach bug, because being a wage employee it's hard to lose that day's worth of pay. But now sitting at my desk with a blanket and some weak tea, even though I'm not barfing anymore I'm absolutely miserable. What do I do, internets?

Has anyone else noticed how in that Silk commercial with the woman getting all her book club friends to try it, one of them calls it "milk-plus"? I started laughing like an idiot, and my husband didn't get it.

Do you know what "milk-plus" is?

Mm, technology

So we're getting a MacBook Pro in a few days. My fiance is planning on using it mostly for music stuff (He uses Sibelius and Logic) but we're new to Mac - what's new, hot and happenin' that we should get or do with it or whatever? Tweaks, fun stuff, etc?

Also, I used to really enjoy using photoshop back in the day and I'd like to get back into computerized graphic tinkering and such - what program is good these days?

I'm going to cry. I got my period last night and woke up this morning in an unbelievable amount of pain. I had a temperature of 102, was having hot flashes and now I'm freezing. I had two finals today, one that I tried to go to and ended up running out of to go puke and one I just rescheduled. Only reason I'm able to even type now is because the pain is very slightly less than it was 30 minutes ago but I can tell it's coming back.

I tried midol but that never works and I started BC yesterday in hopes of making my periods less painful. But this is unbearable. I want to finish this up because I think I'm going to die in a minute. So my question is:

Do you think if I went to a doctor (first care clinic place) they would be able to give me anything, anything at all, to help with this? I cannot take it anymore. I'm about to cry, seriously, and I never cry from physical pain.

I must go die now.

During the week, one of my coworkers always comes into the office really late, like at 10:00 or 10:30 am.  This is because she often works late and is tired, and we all respect that.  But she comes in the same time on Monday, without the working late excuse.  Is she out late partying?  Does she have another secret job Sunday nights?  Why does my coworker come in so late on Mondays?

Is Kentucky a part of the South? 
--Southeastern United States, to be clear.

Also, what do you count as the South? 

Personally, I don´t include Texas or Miami, but I do include Virginia and West Virginia and Kentucky. 
Apparently some people go by who seceded and who didn´t, some go by geography (which would include Miami), and I go by accents. 
Some people in Kentucky apparently identify as mid-western.  Now I´m all confuzzled.

Would it be acceptable to wear my fuzzy bathrobe to class today?
It's a long one, so my bits would not be hanging out. I can't seem to get myself dressed today as my robe is 216546845 times more comfy than anything else I own.

If that fails, will I get odd looks taking a queen sized down comforter to class with me?

ETA: guys, I was totally kidding when I wrote the post. I was dressed by the time the question was written, I was just sad because my robe was way comfier than my standard jeans & T shirt.

2. Do ticks ever go out of season?

(I went on a two mile run through the woods the other day, and when I got home I had to destroy eight ticks. It was very traumatic, but I much more enjoyed running in the woods than on the curvy, broken asphalt roads with no sidewalks we have here.)

Last night I took my dogs out for their walk. The dog area is this fenced-in area with trees/grass.

Fun Places to Eat in Vegas

As my friend's Best Man, I have the great honor of planning his bachelor party. I'm trying to find a good place to eat dinner. By "good", I mean a fun place, with good food, where we won't be given harsh looks for being a little loud. Not belligerent, but not quiet.

I had Benihana's in mind, but we've been there many times and while it would meet all the requirements for dinner, I was hoping to find something new. There will be 7 of us in total, FWIW.

Anyone have any ideas or recommendations?

Texture books

My daughter really likes the 'touch and feel' type books when we look at books in stores. But I am picky about books, and I can't find any that I really like! I just want books that have a variety of textures, but I want them to be decently accurate. For example, I don't like when there's a pig or dolphin and the texture is a piece of foamy stuff. Pigs are not made out of foam!

What texture books should I get?

For those of you who work in an office environment:

When a fire alarm goes off, do employees at your work generally look to other co-workers to see if they should evacuate or do they leave the building immediately?

And for those of you who have been in that kind of a setting when the fire alarm went off, did you grab your handbag/coat or did you just head outside as quickly as possible?

A fire alarm just went off in my building and literally no one budged because they were all looking to other people to make the call of whether they should stay or go. I tried to get my department to go and when they wouldn't, I left. Turns out all of the other floors were already evacuating.

Hair help

So, in an effort to rediscover my natural hair color, I dyed my hair a bit darker back in December and have been pleased with my hair's return to its naturalness. However, the ends of my hair are too blond for my liking, and I'm wondering how to get rid of the blondness. Should I look for lowlights (which seem to be pretty rare at my local drugstores and chains), buy hair dye that matches my roots and just apply to the ends, or suck it up and let my hair continue growing out? I don't want to cut my hair more than a trim because I am growing it out (and it grows oh so slowly).

I am constantly tired even though I get a fair amount of sleep.

I get stomach aches in the morning.

I get lightheaded and slightly dizzy in the morning. 

These symptoms disappear if I sleep for three hours, but I obv. can't do that every day.

I end up falling asleep in usually two classes per day.

I get sick about every two weeks.

Gym Fees

My fiance is rather impulsive. A few months ago, he decided he wanted to start working out, "for real." So he signed up for a gym membership. He went religiously for three weeks, and has not been back since.

However, this gym doesn't have a month-to-month payment plan. You sign up for a year, or you're SOL. So he signed the year contract. With this is the authorization to withdraw the fees directly from our bank account. I HATE HATE HATE auto-pay. I despise it. I wouldn't be opposed to mailing a check in every month on the 15th. Even if he's not going, just because we're obligated. But I canNOT believe he authorized auto-pay without even so much as calling to ask if that was fine. Hindsight and all...

Anyway, how would you handle this? He "works out" other ways. He's in two softball leagues (one male-only, one co-ed), and he practices two nights a week, plays two nights a week, and every couple of weeks, is involved in a tournament. It's not like he really even has time to work out. But we're obligated to pay this fee for the next 8 months or so.

What are some ways to handle this? I mean, aside from killing him?

For people who prefer the same sex, and were out to their parents at a young age...

How did your parents deal with sleepovers? Were you still allowed to stay overnight alone with someone of the same gender?

Sorry if this is an ignorant question, but it's just something I found interesting. My mom wouldn't have let me stay over a guy's house at 14 or 15, so I'm curious how parents deal with that situation. My friend Mike's parents stuck to the same deal even after he came out to them; sleepovers with guys were fine but staying alone at girls' houses was a big no. Odd.

A couple weeks ago there was a really loud kid at the restaurant I work at.  One table politely asked the kid's mother to ask them to speak quieter, and after like the third or fourth time the mother said "that is just the way he talks" and the other people told them "then they must be as stupid as you."  How would you react if a complete stranger called you and your loud kid stupid?

1. i recently got a kitten. right now, she's about 7 or 8 weeks old. i've owned cats all my life, but i've never had a kitten before. obviously, she loves to play and i love playing with her too. but within the past couple of days, her nipping has turned to painful biting. she doesn't break the skin or anything, but it's still a bit too hard. when she's in her playful mood and begins to bite my hand too hard, i say her name sternly and then say: NO. when i pull my hand away, she just goes after it again. finally, after about 5 or 6 times in a row of doing this, she retreated. how can i get her to learn? what has been the most effective way in your experience of teaching a kitten the difference between playful and painful?

2. what do you like in your macaroni salad? i went to a restaurant a couple weeks ago and had some with small chunks of pineapple in it. it was so good!

Anyone know what kind of places you can work at when you have unnatural-colored hair?

Also, if you're up for giving heavy advice- my mom's an artistic person. She used to love to draw and paint but she hasn't for years. I talked to her about it the other day and it sounds like she still wants to get into it but she feels pressure and frustration when she thinks about doing it. She says it makes her think of her school days when she had to do a certain thing and have it in by a certain time, etc. I asked her if I could help her get into that stuff again and she said sure. So she's open to it! But I don't know how to get her into it again and to help her not feel frustration and to help her discover herself through art, maybe, and to open up through her art. She says she doesn't know what styles she wants to do, what kind of painting she wants to do, how to do it...I'd try a class but I want to avoid the "pressure/deadlines" that knocked her out of it. I don't know what kind of advice I expect to find here, but anything would be appreciated. =3

 what is better for an on-the-market house's general appeal - wood or carpet?

We're definitely doing wood on our middle level (as mentioned in our earlier post) because all that's on that level is the kitchen, a foyer, and a dining room (all of this is on a "Balcony" that overlooks the bottom level - we're in a townhouse)

All that's in the BOTTOM level is a family room. Do you think that a family room NEEDS to be carpeted or could we do wood in the bottom level as well without making our house unsellable? 

We're looking to sell the house in two years, and the carpet has been ruined by piss from special-needs dogs. We no longer have special-needs dogs, and the floors DESPERATELY need to be replaced, but we'd rather not do carpet when we're not selling for a few more years and do have a saint bernard, who's large and tends to track mud in the house.

Last night, I responded to an ad regarding an internship position. When I checked my cell phone for the first time today at around 1pm, I noticed that I had a new voice message. It was the owner of the company that had advertised the position. He said he wanted to set up an interview, and asked me to call him back today. I returned his call around 2, and his secretary said that he was in a meeting. She took down my name and number.

It's now 5:30, and still no call from him. If I don't hear from him today, would it be appropriate to give him a call tomorrow afternoon (given that I still hadn't heard from him) to verify that he did indeed receive a message that I had called?

Working in a doctor's office has made me mildly terrified of seeing a doctor. 

Edit, again:  The mild terror comes from the fact that I've realized there's some competence issues when dealing with just about anyone in a medical office who isn't the doctor.  I consider myself only mildly incompetent.

How does that make you feel about your doctor now?

Have you ever had a similar situation?

Tell me a story about your fucked up family tqc.


I have a really creepy great uncle (Uncle Bud) who molested all of his kids (two girls, one boy). He never got in any trouble for it, but my my aunt and uncle (both of who work in law) swear that he did it. When my aunt (the one in law) was a kid, she stayed at UNCLE BUD'S house and slept downstairs with UNCLE BUD'S kids. They started talking about "daddy's liquor cabinet' and how 'daddy' liked to come down and get them liquored up. One of the girls was like, I'M DADDY'S FAVORITE, and the all started arguing about who 'daddy' liked the most. After that was settled one of the kids said MAYBE DADDY WILL COME DOWN TONIGHT. Apparantly my Aunt was scared shitless.

Whenever I finish driving I feel like I'm going to pass out. Will it stop being like this? I only started driving, like, a week ago.

Partially inspired by this question.

Has anyone had experience seeing a doctor for chronic headaches? I get headaches frequently, with at least 2 a week stopping me from doing things I want/need to do. I try to avoid taking painkillers unless they are really bad, or else I would be taking them all the time. It's been this way my whole life but seems to have gotten worse lately.

So has anyone had any success trying to get them treated or do I just need to suck it up?


Your hands are torn off in a terrible accident. the doctor says you can replace them with anything you want, so long as it isn't human hands. what would you choose? yes, each hand can be different, no you can't have bloody stumps.

What's the appropriate way to ask a potential employer if they've made a decision regarding your employment? It is about a week past when they said they'd get back to you by.
