Attn: Copywriters

I have a job interview on Tuesday at my university's student paper, for the job as the copy editor. What kind of questions should I expect? I've been interviewed a few times to be an arts and entertainment reporter (as my journalism experience has been as a reporter), but I'm not exactly sure how I can prove that I'm capable of being a copywriter when I've never done it before.

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.

1. Is there any specific way to go about finding a good therapist? Other than looking in the phone book, that is.
2. Is it generally allowable for another person to be present for the session, even if they are not a part of it?
3. Is there much of a chance of finding one that works on a sliding scale or some other reasonable pricing system?

Caveats - the person is in school, but the school doesn't offer mental health services. They have health insurance, but it doesn't include this sort of thing.

So, I’m in need of some pictures to use for my up and coming art projects. I’ve become a bit obsessed with silhouettes and profiles lately. Would you post a picture of your profile that you wouldn’t mind me using as a reference for my future pieces? It doesn’t have to be silhouetted, but that would certainly be a bonus.

Thank you!

Also, keep an eye on my lj if you care to see whether I pick your photo or not. :D

If your boyfriend is constantly "joking" about tying the knot, is he really just joking or is joking (as my friend has told me) a way of testing the waters and an indirect way of speaking the truth?

Would you only joke about marriage with your girlfriend if you could actually see the two of you tying the knot in real life?

TQC, you and a friend are walking around looking for a place to hang out in a dorm hall around 1AM. You see the common room door (It's a small room!) is shut and you hear someone talking on the phone.

Do you two go in, sit down and start talking really loudly anyway?

If you do, do you feel bad if the person on the phone gets up and walks out?

Tan Lines Of DOOOOOM


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?

Do you know of a brand or store that sells stud earrings with very small backs?

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*.

TQC I am going to be a teaching assistant in a course on my focus in my major (art history) in the fall. My professor/mentor has asked me to come up with a list of my duties and I'm kind of drawing blanks. The class is very discussion oriented, with more focus on the themes of the visual culture as opposed to just memorizing slides. During the course my professor will be away for a week and the class will be in my hands. I will not be doing any grading.

Um, what should I do? All I can think of is leading review sessions before the midterm and final, being available to help students during my set office hours, and I know that I'll have to give at least one lecture during the week my professor is gone.

So I totally had a dream last night that instead of an LJ community, TQC was a bar. And you would go up to the bar and other users would be at it (unfortunately my brain decided not to specify who was there with me... LAME) and you would order your question at the bar and they'd bring it to you and the users at the bar would gather around and answer. I blame the fact that I drank before bed that this happened.

Yeah, weird.

Holy tl;dr - am I haunted?

For the last year or so, I have had a really strange phenomenon going on in my room. I only notice it at night, when I am trying to sleep, because that is the only time I am in there. Every couple of nights I will hear a very strange, yet distinct, knocking sound coming from inside my walls. I used to think it was my hamster fucking with her wheel, but the location varies from time to time and my hamster isn't that talented. You see, the knocks come in twos, everytime, no fail. Sometimes the sets of twos will be five seconds apart, sometimes a minute, but typically very pattern-like. They are really loud, too, so unless a rat is being pummeled to death, they couldn't be making the noise. I don't think it's a rat, either, in that they are so pattern-like, and then stop for no reason. The knocks wake me up everytime because it's hard to sleep when someone/thing is fucking knocking on your walls.

Do you have any of this weird kind of shit going on?

Yesterday while on the bus, I noticed that the man sitting in front of me was reading big folder with about 100/200 pages, printed and put into plastic wallets.
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.

My google skills are failing me

Are there any kind of pre-written sample letters around online to inquire as to why the fuck one's former landlord has not returned any of your calls on the status of your deposit?

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.

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.  ;)

This is totally lame, sorry

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.

also, is it "no poo" approved?

thanks for any help

1. Given the choice and money, where would you choose to study abroad? (You can pick any place.)
3. If you have gone backpacking on the lost coast in california, what was it like?



OK so odd thing happened... I thought I lost my cell phone and since my entre life is on it I hurried and called Verizon to make use of my insurance. They suspended my service so that in case it had been stolen no one could use it. They sent me the exact same phone in silver which I like lot more than the black one I had. 

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?

 Are there any songs that you listen to, but they'd normally sound annoying or displeasing to you if you didn't associate them with something else? I don't know if that makes sense.  Like, I love the song "Needle in the Hay" from Royal Tenenbaums, but if I had heard it from somewhere esle I don't think I'd like it. I think I associate that song with the feeling I got during that scene in the movie.

Let's say you have friends on your flist who are in a big fight with each other.  All their entries are insults to the other person, and it's starting to take over your entire flist.

Do you remove them, or do you try to stick it out to help them?

Have you ever had this happen?

My sister and I are identical twins, meaning identical DNA. We are in our early 20s.

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?

Graduation present???

So I've been going out with my boyfriend for about 3 months now, but we've been talking for a year. and he's having a graduation party on the 31st. I got him tickets to see the musical "Jersey Boys" for the 30th, ( I know, how gay are we? xD I love it) so it'd be perfect, cause we can spend the night together, then have the next day to mingle with the friends/family.

However, it's also his sister's graduation party. He's graduating from high school, and she's graduating from college.

Should I get her anything? and if so, what? I want to, but I dont want her to think I'm like... buying her affection. lol
maybe I'm reading too much into this? I dunno. What would you give a college graduate?

Okay I just watched two of the most depressing season finales ever and need cheering up. What movie should I put in to cheer myself up? I just rented Across The Universe and I do want to see it... but I have Mean Girls, Treasure Planet, Monsters Inc... you know... something I know could cheer me up.

How would you cheer yourself up? :(

For those in the UK...

For those of you who live in the UK, how much money did you spend moving out for the first time? After University, I mean.

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!
