My boyfriend type things coming over tomorrow. What should I make for dinner?

(I won't eat rice or pasta. I dislike chicken but I'll tolerate it occasionally. Everyone involved hates mayo and ham. Thats the only conditions.)

Do you ever get really paranoid when someone new comes over?
I do. I hate my house =( Its ugly.

What's your favourite cooking recipe?

I had two new housemates move in on the weekend, and I want to make them a 'thanks for moving in' dinner....yet I am a pretty hopeless cook, so the easier the better!

1:08am/idk, you tell me

What time is it?

Should I go to bed now or stare at the computer monitor for another three hours? Or is there something else you wanna suggest for me to do? I'm up for helping out around the house or whatever.

2. If you had to pick any character from any movie to go on a road trip with, who would it be?

3. So, uh...does ANYONE here eat junk food, ever? I only ask because anytime something like "what's your favorite snack?" is asked, I always see a whole bunch of this...." soy milk!!!"   "Kashi!!!"  "granola!!!"  "not a damn thing but AIR!!!"
And am I the only one who notices that?

There's a local commercial here for a team of lawyers that specialize in motorcycle accidents, in the commercial they comment how many drivers aren't careful about sharing the roads with motorcycles. In your opinion, in accidents involving motorcycles who is more often to blame-the motorcyclist or the driver of the other vehicle?

so my most wonderful best friend won 2 free[!] tickets to see the dark knight[!] in imax[!] tomorrow[!] and of course i get to go along.

so aside from right now, when was the last time you were jealous of someone?

hahaha, just kidding. real question:

what should i wear? i'm thinking high-waisted acid-washed black denim skirt, and either a t-shirt or a short sleeved blouse... but if i do that, i really don't know what kind of shoes to wear, because i don't want to be uncomfortable.

another question: why do i even care?

The Jamaican man that I work with asked me if I smoked (cigarettes) and I said "No, never." He was shocked. He asked if my husband smoked cigarettes and I said no. He said "I thought about 97% of Americans smoked!"

Non-Americans: Do you think the majority of American's smoke? If you said yes, what makes you think that?

And referencing my Moscow post from last night, my husband and I sat down and looked at our finances and budget and decided it just isn't feasible for me to fly to Moscow this year. But I'd like to send my friend something really meaningful and awesome as a wedding present. We met over a book series that we both enjoyed and I was thinking of getting her all of them in a nice box set or something. She can't find a lot of them in Russia and she doesn't have the means to purchase things online. Is this a nice enough present? What other neat Americanish things can I send her?

Do you recall the very first time you heard your own voice, on a video, casette tape, etc.?

How did you react?

I was in 2nd grade and my teacher wanted to make a casette tape of me reading a book so the other kids could listen and follow along. My mom came in and helped record it, and when I listened to it I started crying saying "that's not my voice!"

ETA: Does anyone out there actually like the sound of their own voice?

So you're walking down the street and come across a dead wildebeest. Out of nowhere comes a purple mermaid wearing a rainbow scarf. She starts humping the wildebeest in the middle of the road, but her fin gets in the way. She asks you to mate with the wildebeest for her, but the catch is that you will contract some crazy, nasty wildebeest STD that will cost $250,000 dollars to cure and the only doctor in the world who will help you lives on the top of an isolated mountain that costs an addtional $250,000 to get to. For $1, 000, 000 dollars, do you fuck the wildebeest for the purple mermaid wearing a rainbow scarf?

Tanning

I'm fairly light skinned. I was out in the sun all last weekend and now have a minor sunburn in the shape of the collar of my shirt.

I'm getting married on the 8th of August, outside in a strapless dress. I'd rather not have any weird tan lines but I'm not sure if it's too late. Should I try and go to a tanning salon a couple times before the wedding? I'm not going to tan outside topless and a tanning salon is the only way I can think of to avoid tanlines. How many times would I need to go? What sort of cost am I looking at?

Dishwashing

When loading a dishwasher, do you make sure all the items are placed in there "correctly" or do you haphazardly pile them all in there and hope for the best?

Inspired by my MIL loading the machine yesterday and then me going in and re-doing it because I don't like it when the plates clank and rub against each other, or when the bowls are balanced on top of small plates. (Anal much?)

Hey, it's my first Dr. LJ post!

So, TQC, I'm pretty certain I've sprained my ankle. I took today off work (because I can't walk about, obviously, and my job requires it), but I really can't afford to take any more days off. Would it be really bad for my ankle if I went back to work tomorrow? I have to push carts and shelve things.

Oh, and I can't afford to see a doctor right now, so that's out of the question.

You're walking down the street following a rousing game of basketball with some of your friends, when you suddenly come across a large wildebeest. Seeing as wildebeests aren't so common in your area anymore, following The Wildebeest Murdering Act of 1984, you stop for am moment and contemplate various things such as "My, what a large animal." and "I didn't think I was taking those drugs today."

You, for some ungodly reason, decide to move a bit closer to the surprisingly tame wildebeest. After a period of time, it clears it's throat and asks you the time. You remember various excerpts from you biology books indicating that wildebeests cannot, in fact, talk, and that this is a severe problem that may also be some kind of neurological disorder. It was a complicated book.

Faced with the notion of a talking wildebeest in the middle of the street, do you:
1- Run away screaming, and hope it doesn't ask you any more questions?
2- Use your Dark Charizard to have char-roasted wildebeest?
3- Double click the power chord?
4- Discover that is, in fact, a neurological disorder, whenever you start having severe seizures and the wildebeest turns into a frog named Jim who you went to high school with?
5- Just do more drugs?
6- Never play basketball with those guys again, because they clearly fucked you up?

I was driving down the thru way and there was a mommy duck with her baby ducks crossing the road. I slowed down until they were out of my lane and then the car in the left lane hit the mommy duck. The car behind it hit the baby ducks. I'm pretty irrationally upset about this. I know they're just ducks but ugh it was tragic.

What's the last thing you were irrationally sad about?

so i've been feeling a little sick lately, and my doctor told me that i'm just not eating enough, and suggested that i make sure i always have something to snack on to keep me feeling better. i've already stocked up on crackers, fruit, and chips, but i need a little variety.

3) Are you in the mood for a poll around now?
Y/N/M

4) Which would be more fun right now? A poll about zombies or a poll about sex?
Z/S

5) I like how polls generally supply the answers, and you as the audience merely have to click a box or two. Such simplicity in a post is perfect, how the poster can connect with the viewers in such an easy way. Shouldn't all posts require as little work? That being said, explain in 100-200 words exactly why you believe that democracy is properly granted in the poll form. Include no more than 4 and no less than 1 footnotes to back up your work.

You're in a parking lot of a major store (a WalMart or a mall parking lot or something), and notice a small, bubbly-looking blonde toddler wandering around, edging closer and closer to the front of the parking lot and therefore all the traffic/cars at the storefront. You see a woman who could possibly be her mother, but you're not entirely sure, because she's glued to her cell phone and trying to put an all-natural-fillers seat cover into the cart. There are a couple of other families around with small children, several of them blonde. You say something softly like "Hey?" but the little girl doesn't notice your words.

What do you do?

ETA: There is the distance of three-quarters of a row of parking spaces between the alleged mother and this child, a distance that is rapidly increasing.

Next week I am going to Florida with the mom, her boyfriend and his three kids. (As a side note, I don't really know him or his kids that well.)
The original plan was to take two cars, mine and my mom's, so all the people and the stuffs would fit. The new plan is to take his truck, which will seat all of us. I'm not sure if I feel like riding with all of them for the four hours it takes to get there.
So, tqc, should I drive myself, or should I suck it up and be a big girl and ride with them, which would obviously save gas money?

Do I need to wear a bra with this dress or is it holding up my boobs well enough? I really really really don't want to have to wear my strapless bra today. It's one band and 2 cup sizes smaller than the bras I wear and I only use it when I really need to.

EDIT: I put darts in to make it a bit tighter in the chest. Here is how the dress fit before the darts.

EDIT2: OKAY OKAY. I put a bra on. But I'm not happy about it! lol

Where can I find a strapless bra in size 38F? Do they exist?

My boyfriends job sucks right now. He's a head cook and usually they have 3 cooks and one head cook per shift.
We shall call the 3 cooks by the names:
Joe, Jack, and John.
Joe decides to go on vacation for a week. Calls in the day he was supposed to come back and says he isn't coming back. Everything was tight but my boyfriend, Jack and John survive.

Jack gets fired. Were down to John and my boyfriend. Things SUCK. Pulling double shifts and working close to 50 hours each in a week. Then they hire Jeff.

John decides to go on vacation last week while Jeff needs to go on vacation this week.

John comes to work today and decides to quit.

My boyfriend is working 70+ hours this week until Jeff comes back on Monday. Tomorrow was soposto be his day off, That's not happening.
Double shifts= 3am - 7pm.
Anything after 40 hrs a week is overtime.
Obv. Boyfriend is looking at a nice paycheck but ugh. I just feel horrible. This has been going on since JANUARY. He's tired and cranky and I just wish he wasn't so overworked. what can I do to make him feel better about this shitty situation? Sure Jeff comes back next Monday but it's still going to be tight.

tldr- what can I do to make my boyfriend feel better while hes stuck working over 70 hours this week?

sex and whatnot isn't an option anymore because he's too tired to do anything these days.

My dad is the head of an international education program at a local college, as part of the program some of the students are in they have to spend the night at somebody's house because they couldn't find any where else (I guess) two of them will be staying with us Saturday to Sunday. I have to give up my room and sleep on the futon in the office which is slightly annoying but fine, however my dad just informed me that he and my mom have to go to a dinner with the president of the college Saturday night so I have to hang out with the two students...after working all day (8-5). I also am really introverted and most of the time just feel really awkward around people I don't know and that increases when I am forced into socializing with them. Would you be pissed off too?
