Also, does anyone have any experience writing for ad agencies? I'm interested in getting into this field. I would like to get an internship somewhere...should I just start cold-calling? Would they even bother looking at me when I only have a B.A. in English? What can I do to show I'm enthusiastic?
Thanks in advance.

So.... I just moved to California in September. Being from Illinois, I had only heard about the sun by rough description, so in my first week here I laid out with inadequate, patchy sunblock coverage and got really incredibly silly looking tan lines... mostly on my back, but also on my butt. It's been what, eight months now? and they are faded but still definitely there. Is there anything I can do about this?? Things I've considered:
-Submitting to massive exfoliation
-Going to a nude beach and getting burned all over to even it out
-Some kind of lemon juice/caustic acid treatment?
I think cartilage piercings are very cute and I would like to have mine done, but I don't like seeing a chunk of ugly metal on the back side of people's ears. Since my ears stick out a little, the backs would be pretty prominent *grin*.

He was in his late 20's, and was one of those 'mum-still-dresses-him' sorts, and was tapping the page at intervals, then flicking through to another page.
In his folder was the entire contents of the Narnia Wiki page. Something tells me it was not for a course.
What do you make of this?
While inwardly I thought it was a bit snazzy, I wondered what sort of a 20/30 year old would still need the escapism Narnia provides. The bus station is just outside the cinema, so I think he may have gone there to try to watch Prince Caspian before realising it doesn't come out for a month.
I have tried various phrasings on google, but maybe I haven't hit upon the magic words, because all I keep getting is crap about bank loans. If we simply wait until the end of the month, we can sue for triple the amount (in my state, that's how it works if the landlord doesn't return the deposit or have something in writing within 30 days explaining why they aren't returning it). But that would be a pain in the ass.
What do people call you?
Julie, Ju, Jules, Bean, Jelly, Calamari, and Shutterbug (there are more, but these are on a regular basis).
Wanna do it?
I'm kind of tired right now.
2. My pms gets outta control. I swear I become the super bitch and get mad and upset at things for no good reason. Any suggestions to help with the mood swings?
i have my license, four cars worth of proof of insurance and registration, five or six gift cards*, CVS extra care card, other things like that. thankfully, i only had $4 cash in there.
*i know i probably can't have them replaced, but they probably all total to about $65.
please refrain from sassing me about being irresponsible. :( i already feel stupid enough.
has this happened to you before? what did you do?
i've checked everywhere and not only do i feel really stupid, anxiety is taking over my life, because i am imagining the worst possible things.
this is crossposted. thank you guys so much.

So I have one of those advice/omg what do i do guyz questions:
This acquaintance that I knew in high school, who I have not spoken to in 6 YEARS messaged me on facebook and asked me if he could buy me lunch when he's in town. I'm a bit creeped out and not attracted to him at all. It just seems like it's coming totally out of left field.
How should I respond?
2. After watching THIS trailer, have you changed your mind about seeing it?
3. Why did my university cite me for music downloading when I did no such thing? And why won't they call me back and explain why I'm denied wireless access!?

5. what did you have for dinner/are going to have for dinner?
I was just informed I need to have one written for tomorrow.
I'm pretty angry right now. A little while ago I was livid, but I've started to calm down.
This 7 year-old twerp across the street just tried to 'steal' and keep a piece of a jousting spear, my 5 year-old son's souvenir that he bought with his own money at the renfair yesterday.
He coughed it up, but this is the kid's second strike in my eyes (the first was trying to sneak into our house).
I'm usually very much for kids fighting their own battles and working through problems, but if my kid asks nicely and you still don't want to play fair, then the claws are apt to come out.
So, my questions:
1) What would you have done as a parent in this situation? Even if you aren't and plan never to be a parent, please imagine for me...
2) Do you remember a situation like this in your childhood? Did you ever want your parents' help and not get it? Did your parents butt in when you didn't want them to? Any other twists on the situation?
edit: If you agree I should talk to the kid's dad (the parent he lives with), how would you approach him with the goal of not getting him defensive about his son? I'm looking for ideas of actual conversation openers that I can use when I'm much more calm and reasonable. ;)
What do you guys think?

If I buy a $5,000 used car:
1) How much do I have to pay for the registration?
2) Do I pay sales tax at the RMV or at the dealers?
3) How much do new normal, non vanity plates cost?
4) Any other fees? (besides insurance of course, which I have already)
5) If the dealer can do the registration/inspection sticker/ plates for you, would you do it? I mean the RMV is a hassle, maybe it is worth it to pay the extra money?

I've been with my SO for 6 years, since I was 18. Just before I met him (probably a month before) I was sleeping with a friend of mine. That lasted until my current SO and I started dating. I cut off contact with him after that but he continued to call, stop by my high school (I was in 12th grade at this time), etc. for 6 months at least. Then my SO and I had a baby and moved away.
I haven't seen him in 5 years until he moved in with his girlfriend next door last week. He is actively pursuing me and really doesn't care that I am married with 2 kids. I have been up front with him, told him to get lost, told him I wasn't interested. My car sticks out like a sore thumb and whenever he sees it around town, like at a store he pulls over and pops in to see me.
I blocked him from any contact on the internet, and I can't exactly just move because we just bought this house in April. He is a serial cheater, and very attractive. This guy gets any woman he wants, every girl he's cheated on or hurt even goes back to sleep with him. Very charming. I just don't understand his obsession with me but it's creeping me out.
My SO knows the deal and isn't worried but is getting irritated with him. He says I should stir up some shit by showing his girlfriend proof that he's cheating, and maybe he'll be pissed and leave me alone.
So which is better:
I don't want to bias the polls, so I'll tell you my vote later.
UPDATE: It has been an hour and Twix has won, 20-12. For the record, my vote was for Snickers. Perhaps the Snickers fans just come out late at night...
How likely do you think it is that I can do that?

I was cleaning out my car the other day and found my old "lost" cellphone under my son's carseat... Verizon locked the serial number on that phone so if someone wanted to use it they couldn't right? I would like to give my old black phone to a friend of mine but I don't know how to go about doing that. The guy I talked to in Customer Service said I'd need to contact the insurance company and send one of them back (or something).
Is there a way to put the old black phone to use again?

Neither of us had the Gardisil vaccine. She was diagnosed with HPV and it is the cancer causing type. After I heard about this, I immediately ran out to my doctor and got the vaccine.
My question, TQC - since we are identical twins, does this mean that I will get HPV too?
However, it's also his sister's graduation party. He's graduating from high school, and she's graduating from college.

I'm with my in-laws now, but my MIL is throwing HUGE HUGE hints that she wants us to get out really soon, so I'm feeling pressured. I don't have much saved, to be honest, some amount between £1,000 - £2,000 and I don't want to go without a washing machine or a computer.
I'd love to have about £3600 saved (along with whatever my husband has). We're just going to rent some place.
What do you think? I live in the Birmingham-ish area and pay no more than £500 a month in rent. I'm working over 45 hours a week just to do overtime to get out, but it doesn't seem like enough!
