Because even unscientific statistics can be fun! This is a poll about the month you were born in. I just wanted to see if it's really true that more people are born during a certain time of year. This has nothing or little to do with your horoscope, so please participate even if you don't care about that stuff.
- My girlfriend is not jealous at all, She tells her girlfriends that she realizes that it's almost impossible for a man to not want to look at other girls or think other women are attractive. She thinks it's a waste of her life to stress that kind of thing. Obviously if I cheated she would break up with me but her girlfriends think her mentality means she isn't really in love with me.
What do you all think?
I think Love and Jealousy don't go hand in hand...but I think Insecurity and Jealous do. Your thoughts?

What was that one children's book about the ordinary cat who, during the day, did ordinary cat things, but at night he would sneak out of the house, go down the road, into town, and get in his taxi and drive his friends around to places? I think there may have been a night-club or something called the Bow-Wow-Meow or something.
Coffee always makes me sneeze and I began to wonder why so I googled it. One of the only few pages I found said that it sounds like an allergic reaction.
But do food allergies really cause sneezing? I thought food allergies caused physical things like swelling or blotching but not sneezing... and that sneezing allergies were from nasal stimulants like dust and dander. Anyone know?
Do any foods or beverages make you sneeze?
Any idea why coffee makes me sneeze, if not an allergy?
My coworkers want to go out to dinner before the end of the school year, so they keep asking me what day would be good for me. I'm dreading it. What should I tell them? I want to be polite, but at the same time I really don't want to go. How can I politely get out of going?
They would know I was lying if I said I was busy on all the days they suggested. I guess I would rather go than hurt their feelings, but avoiding it all together would be best.
If it matters I have 3 coworkers, but I think one of them won't be coming.
EDIT: I'm just worried that I would be really out of place, and that they wouldn't really want me there. Plus I hate eating in front of people.
1. Do you believe in 'past lives'? 2. Have you ever had a dream or a memory that you think was from a past life'? 3. Will yo explain yourself in a past life, whether you believe in it or not? (Like say you were born during world war II, what would you have been doing? Or whatever time you feel you would have fit in most.) 4. Has a psychic ever told you anything really weird? How about anything that came true? 5. Do you believe in fate? That some things are just destined to occur? 6. Have you ever had a freaky dream experience? (Having the same dream as someone else, having a dream that came true?) What was it? 7. Do you think there are people who can really talk to/see ghosts? Or are they just crazy? 8. What's your favourite mythological story?
is it better to delude yourself towards caring about someone who probably won't care but you, yourself, illogically give way too much shit about, or should you make yourself available to other candidates?
It gets 105+ degrees here in the summer and I am uncomfortable wearing short sleeved shirts. I wouldn't mind wearing long sleeves if I didn't tend to profusely sweat from my armpits >:O Do you have any alternative ideas or am I just going to have to suck it up?
Is there anything you aren't comfortable wearing? Do you care to share why?
what was that one country song from way back when that went 'Making wine, scolioli, making wine'? Or maybe is was 'drinking wine'? I am pretty sure it's by George Jones, but not positive, and Google isn't helping me at all. Especially since I have no clue how 'Scolioli is spelt, and I'm going with it being phonetic.
Since some Japanese people cannot usually have cats in their small apartments, a company has come up with a unique service in Tokyo. For about $10 US dollars, people can pay an entrance fee to get into Cat Livin' to pet a bunch of kitties!
How cool is that? What other unique culture things do you know of that may seem weird to us?
My apartment complex is paving part of the parking lot. We got two notices about it on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, referencing a map that was given out regarding where residents should park (aside: we never got this map, but it might just be our building that didn't get it). Yesterday I woke up and saw that my car was surrounded by orange cones. I hauled ass out of bed and moved it. This morning I got up again and there was a dump truck blocking my car, but no cones. A lot more of the parking lot has cones now, though. I went out to get breakfast, and when I came back, I saw the tow truck. They're on a towing spree. They've towed at least 5 cars already, all from spots that had cones around them.
1. How pissed would you be if you came home and saw your car was gone (assuming you didn't get a map)? 2. How pissed would you be if you *were* home and realized when you went to get in your car that it was gone? 3. Do you think you'd manage to keep your cool if your vehicle had been towed when you called the leasing office, even though you never received a map? 4. Is it mean that I'm laughing to myself a little about the people who are getting their cars towed? (Even without a map, I managed to figure out where to park my car to be safe, so it's not like it was impossible.) 5. Sucks to be them, y/y?
6. Dressing a baby stupid for your own selfish amusement: cruel or hilarious?
My boyfriend didn't get ahold of me at all yesterday which is not like him at all. Where is he?
Now for the real question: I have two cousins graduating high school next month. What do 18ish year old boys like that I could get them? I don't have a ton of money to spend and I'm not really close to either one.
My doctor thinks I should go to therapy because some bad stuff happened to me when I was younger, but I really don't want to go because I don't think it will help. Should I go even though I don't want to, just because my doctor says I should?
My husband and I found a ridiculously cheap deal to Barbados for plane tickets and a hotel. The total cost of the package was cheaper than what roundtrip tickets alone would have cost us. However, the hotel that comes with the package is "cheap" and will literally just be a place to sleep. Yesterday, I found a sick deal for a 5 star hotel in Barbados on the best beach there. For three nights (the minimum you can book) the cost will be $550 or so with taxes. We were thinking about doing it and spending the last three days of our trip in luxury since we spent so little on the vacation package so far.
So my question is, would you do it? Or would you just save the $500+ and stay at the cheap hotel?
1) Would you rather be a little bit chubby (think 10 pounds more than the BMI average) but happy and able to eat without worry, or would you rather have a fabulously fit and trim body and have to worry about food all the time? Why?
2) I got a raise. What should I do this weekend to celebrate?
my landlord still has not cashed my rent check for may. he is out of town the entire month and possibly longer, but he didn't notify any of the tenants. the only reason i found out is because i called his work looking for him. should i cancel the check and just get a money order for may and june? i hate having the money sitting in my account knowing i can't spend it and waiting for him to get his act together and cash the damn check already.
I asked my best friend this last night when we were discussing how icky the "celebrities" are that get their own "Bachelor" type shows. So, first, I asked, "Would you rather: Flava Flav or Brett Michaels?" She was being a dork and refusing to answer, so I changed it to FMK- Brett, Flav or Louie Anderson?
We figured out the only way it would be almost tolerable is kill Flav, boff Louie and marry Brett.
So, what are your answers? And while we're at it, make your OWN FMK list, or would you rathers, k?
ETA: Just to be clear I am not commenting on the validity of Christianity or any other religion and I know how libraries and DDS work. I am literally asking if YOU had your own library and had to choose fiction or non-fiction, where would you put it?
are you critical of how you look? are you critical of how others look?
if yes to both, which developed first?
i used to be critical of others looks, say if i didn't like a girl i'd make a mean comment behind her back (yes it's awful, anyway..). i think that transferred over to obsessing about myself. ahh instant karma.
I just finished my last exam TQC!! Aren't you happy for me? (you don't have to answer this question)
It's nearly 1pm now, what should I do for the rest of the day? What should I do FIRST?
1)Sleep 2)Play Mario Kart and Cooking Mama and various other Nintendo DS games 3)Go to karate practice (haven't gone in 2 weeks, need the workout) 4)Be a responsible student and fill out my credit transfer applications that are due tomorrow 5)Other
How would I go about setting up my flatmate with one of my friends? I have no idea where to begin. They have only met once briefly, but he's lovely, she's lovely and he's expressed interest. How do I go about getting two people who run in totally different social circles to become closer?
He keeps honey bees in his backyard and says these things smell like his honey tastes. Any ideas what this could possibly be?
ETA: He says, "These flowers looked almost exactly like a honeycomb when in bloom. The shriveled older flowers are the ones that are in focus. The almost comb-shaped fresh flowers, I couldn't focus on, so I apologize. I kinda hate my new digital camera."
And if you have NFC what this is, what's the most redonkulous thing you've had to memorize for a job?
Me? My PGP key. We were told we were not allowed to write it down and you have to input this thing every time you start your computer up or your OS will not start. I had to have mine changed about a zillion times before I finally remembered the thing. It's a 16 digit alphanumeric code that must be in all caps, not typed with caps lock on, and is hidden so you cannot see what you're typing. If you make an error such as spacing and then deleting, it will return an error and you have to start over. There are no words to tell you how much I hate this thing.
What qualities do you think a stripper should have? If your girlfriend told you she wanted to be a stripper, Would a straight shot to the baby maker be in order or would you like it? If your boyfriend said he wanted to be a stripper, Would you laugh in his face? Do you use twitter?
My department in this large, worldwide company is 3 people. My boss, me, the database guy. I asked for a raise on Feb 28th. I was told "yes, you certainly deserve more money, let me find out for you."
My boss asked her boss and THAT WEEK the CFO in London quit and there was a total budget freeze until May. So they said, "Yes, you can have your raise, but not until we get someone new in here and figure things out. We'll retro it to the beginning of the year. May."
We're now coming up on June. Last week I asked my boss to ask her boss. I've heard literally NOTHING.
So. My question is, does this email to my boss sound ok? Because it's just the two of us, I don't want to make it a tense working environment by being TOO pushy, but I want my f'ing money already.
Does this sound too wishy-washy? Should I be firmer?
Is there anyway you could get from Nuala/I could get just some kind of response on the raise thing? I know I'm being annoying, but it was the the end of February when I asked, it was pushed back to May and we're now coming up on June. I know the CFO quitting was completely unforeseeable, but with both a new mortgage and high gas prices, I really need to either get some kind of information or I need to look for something closer to me in Waltham area that's comparable.
Thoughts? Insight? Am I overreacting, should I just shut up and deal with it because it will be retro-ed anyway?
The guy I am in love with is going to Iraq for a year to work on the army base (he's not a solider) and I want to make him something to keep with him when he feels lonely or whatever. Silly, yes I know. What should I make? I was going to make him a scarf but it's Iraq and it's pretty toasty there. What are some things you suggest? He's not a boyfriend, more like my crush who I hang out with and hook up with who I have incredibly strong feelings for.
Do you watch Desperate Housewives? What do you think of this show?
I just began watching it (my parents are obsessed with it and bought every season on DVD, so I gave it a try) and I really like it so far despite the fact that I didn't think I would. It's easy to get into.
[EDIT] I'm only in the middle of watching the first season, so no spoilers plz :(
A. TQC, what is wrong with my mouse pointer? Yesterday, it somehow went through puberty on me. Now on webpages, it turns into a grabby hand that when I click it, it only allows me to scroll the page up and down. I can no longer highlight text or click on certain areas of webpages.
ETA: I figured out what it was. Upper right area of IE has a button you can push to turn that function on and off. DUH-HUR!!! :B
2. What's the worst job you've ever had?
D. Clinton or Obama (if you prefer mccain, you're just not worth my time)?
1. do you dislike when people have pictures of their children as lj icons? 2. what's your favorite song? (i need new music) 3. what song ALWAYS makes you want to get up and dance? 4. would you get a hanson tattoo for $100? $500? $5000? (you don't have to pay for the tattoo either)
What criteria does food have to match for you to consider it "homemade"? For instance, if someone uses something from a can, like pie filling or sauce, could you still consider the finished product homemade?
When you see something for sale at a significantly lower price than normal for that item is your first thought "Wow! What a great deal!" or "I wonder what's wrong with it that they'd sell it so cheaply?"
What's a good deal you got recently? Probably the little red shopping cart in this picture. It was only $2 and included 100 items of fake food!!
What's the best deal you've ever gotten? Definitely my couch. Suede double recliner with a fold out bed. The lady who sold it to us said it was a year old and she paid $2500 for it. We gave her $825 for it.
Inspired by this post: http://community.livejournal.com/thequestionclub/40483191.html 1. Why do people feel the need to justify getting more than eight hours of sleep during any given day? I hear this a lot IRL too. 2. Does sleeping more that eight hours make you lazy? Support your thesis. 3. What is the oldest item of clothing you have? How old is it? How often do you wear it?
You're in a relationship in which you absolutely love the person, and you are 100% sure the other person is absolutely in love with you. Then one day, the other person suddenly tells you that your arch rival has offered them everything your lover has ever dreamed of, on the condition that they must never see you again (a la Moulin Rouge).
Would you rather believe that person had never loved you and was just lying to you until something better came along, or is it better to believe that they did love you, although you'll always be wondering, if they did love you, why they broke up with you?
Is the greatest thing you'll ever learn just to love and be loved in return, even if you're not with the person who loves you?
Alright. I am a model. I have a manager. He has said my body is "amazing" and given me a routine to further tone up, but he'd like me to get a routine for my lower body as he thinks I have a "flat ass."
I'm planning on going to the gym next week to get a trainer or something, but I don't know how to find the right person to give me the best ass possible.
How do I ask the male trainers to turn around and show me their butts (so I can choose the person I feel is right for me) without sounding bad or perverted?
Has anyone here ever had a gum graft? I don't know if that's the right name for it-- a periodontal surgery for when you have exposed nerves on your teeth due to gum recession? They take gum tissue from the roof of your mouth and put it on the gum-line... to cover the nerves...
If you have, can you tell me all about it? I have to have one soon and I'm frightened. Is this going to hurt a lot? Will they at least give me good drugs?
I've noticed people here have a habit of saying they only know people from their icons, so please, will you describe the icons of all the people you can recall, even if you don't know their names? Not just people you like, anyone you can remember at all. :)
1. I'm planning a trip for my boyfriend and I. We want to go on some kind of getaway (probably 2 days and 1 night or 3 days & 2 nights). Our budget is $120 for the hotel/place/tickets or whatever it is. But we already have money set aside for transportation, food, & miscellaneous expenses. We live in Southern California, close to Los Angeles. We're looking to go somewhere that's not too close by but no further than 2 1/2 hours driving. Any ideas?
