Are there people whom you just feel awkward and self-conscious around for some reason?

I've met some friends/acquaintances and hang out with them on campus (and a couple of times outside of college) sometimes, but I just simply feel out of my element around them. I always feel so awkward around them. I feel like they go out a lot more than me and feel socially awkward around them. And I just feel boring around them. But for some reason I feel compelled to keep on being around them b/c I feel like I need to know how to talk to people more and they seem like the typical college kids so I need to learn how to be able to talk to them.

If you've felt this way before, does it usually go away and do the friendships usually work out? Or does it usually fade away and you go your separate ways?

Do you prefer tap water or bottled?

Warm, cold, or room temperature?

depends on the brand/area I'm in. My tap water isn't bad, so at room temperature I don't mind it. Cold, I prefer filtered/bottled.

Never a warm water drinker.

Inspired by this article, how do you feel about the Vespa?

I think it's a good investment because it gets good gas mileage and it's cheap but I would prefer something a little more badass like this Honda sports bike.  I'm currently saving for a car because I don't have one and I'm driving my dad's gas guzzler truck.  The Vespa seems tempting even though it's not really what I want.  I'm sure I would grow to love and appreciate it though.  I was just wondering what your thoughts are...

What are some cute things your pet does?

My puppy is has been curled up in a ball on my lap ever since I got on the computer.  Sometimes he'll get his toy and spin around and let it go so he can run after it...like playing fetch by himself!  

Also, am I the only one who grabs my dog and gives him tons of hugs and kisses every time I see that don't abuse your pets commercial?  Every time that sad song starts to play I'm all "Wanna go to the park!?!" because I feel like I have to give him extra love.

After spending a horrible weekend with my mother in law last weekend, my husband and I decided that if we ever have kids, we're going to have to send out a 'rules to see our baby' sort of thing to keep her in check.

I know I've seen one floating around the internet and can't seem to find it.

It had things on there like 'You must bring us food if you come to see the baby' and 'if we ask you to run to the store, you shouldn't complain'. Each item also said something about that if you break the rule you don't get to see the baby.

We probably won't ever actually send one, but does anyone remember that or have a copy of it? Or, hell, did anyone you know do anything like that?

TCC, I had my flat iron in a bag with uncapped roll-on deodorant. Unbeknownst to me, I plugged in the flat iron and discovered a few minutes later that the deodorant had gotten all over the flat iron plug. Deodorant may have possibly gotten into the electrical socket as well (a small bit did, I know). Is there any electrical fire risk here?

My cousin is a gift card scammer

I just recently found out that my cousin will go into stores/call them up and complain until they offer her a gift card or a free service.

I found this out because she was bragging about how the shirt she'd bought me for Christmas last year had pretty much been attained illegally and when I asked her, she said how she goes into stores like Target and WalMart and Fred Meyers and complains and makes a fuss until they give her a gift card, just to make her go away/shut up and that she never bought anything to complain about in the first place.

So if I were to call up the stores and tell them what she's been doing and give them her contact info, would they stop letting her fuck them around?

I'm a hundred percent sure that what she's doing is illegal, not questioning that, I'm just wondering what I can do to stop her from being able to pull that crap anymore.

Can you bring liquids/gels/aerosols (bug spray, lotion, toothpaste, etc) that is bigger than 3oz onto checked in luggage?

I'm aware of the rules for carry-ons, that all liquids/aerosols must be in a 3oz or less container and inside a 1 qt ziplock bag, but my boyfriend insists that our checked-in luggage can't have any big liquids either, since he had his body wash taken away when he was checking it in. Does LAX maybe have different rules?

 How would you react if someone told you that they didn't want to be your friend because they loved you?  

They didn't say it like that exactly, but more along the lines of "I really love you but don't want to try to be friends because you're too far away and like some other guy and it's too hard to handle and I'm going to start therapy for the second time in less than a year and both times were mainly because of Y-O-U!"

I've tried Google, I've tried looking it up in the MLA Handbook, but to no avail.

I have absolutely no idea how to do footnote citations, and it's driving me crazy. Do I need to put a little stupid number at the end of every paragraph? Or just at the end of a section that I use from a single source? When I do regular citations, I do it at the end of every paragraph or use of a new source, and I've tried the same with footnotes, but it puts a new fucking number, like I can't use the same source.

I have no idea what I am doing. Does anyone know how to use footnotes?

So I just watched The Mist the other day and it's one of those "people are trapped together and start going crazy and killing each other almost immediately" kind of movies. I tend to have a little more faith in humanity than that, but I figured I would ask anyway,

Ok. I have to buy a text pager. It's for school. I need to get it this weekend, because I start my inpatient medicine rotation on Monday, and I need to be in the pager system by then. Specifically, I need to get a Motorola T-900.

The question is: where the hell does one purchase a pager? I honestly do not know where to find this. I need to buy it in person, not from the internet, because I need it so soon. Obviously googling this has just returned online shopping, but that will not do.

The love of my life broke up with my last night. (I'm melodramatic, but whatever) In an attempt to cheer me up, my friends, with whom I'm staying for the weekend, (and in front of whose brand new house he broke it off) are putting on a fun, girlie movie. They're putting on Legally Blonde, a movie in which the main character's boyfriend breaks up with her in the first 15 minutes. This is the worst idea ever, y/n?
ETA: I've seen the movie. I know she goes to harvard and becomes valedictorian and ends up with Emmet. But movies focused around breakups are a little hard to take right now. This is all really fresh.

Gift idea for my 18-year-old brother

I need to buy a birthday present for my lazy stoner of a brother, LordVagina. I thought I could get him something to decorate his incredibly shitty car.

He has a rusty blue '91 Chevy Cavalier with ripped seats, body panels painted with spray can paint, several pieces of the dashboard missing, and the ignition switch is dangling out of a hole by some wires because the ignition switch keeps breaking. He likes to decorate his car with markers and stuff. There's graffiti drawings on the outside. On the gas lid there's a marker drawing of an evil clown that says "I EAT KITTENS!" The sides of the seats are decorated with squiggly lines of green glow-in-the-dark glue gel. And there's a WarHammer figurine glued to the dashboard above the steering wheel. That should give you some idea of what it's about.

I've been searching for something kitschy to decorate his car with, but can't think of anything good. I want some suggestions. Decals? nicnacs? stickers? accessories? What should I get that he could use on his car?

Why is the "President" in "Wall-E" a real person, when the rest of the humans are animated?
