You have to pick one primary trait for your SO, that he/she will have in spades. The other 2 traits will be reduced (or elevated, if the case may be) to only average. What will be your SO's strongest trait?
You yourself are given an offer: you can increase your attractiveness by up to 5 points (on the scale of 1 thru 10). However, each point you increase your looks by, your intelligence will drop by 1, up to 5 (on the scale of 1 thru 10). You may go the other way, too, and decrease your looks to boost your intellect (up to 5 points). Will you change yourself?
1. I am going to Buffalo, NY tomorrow. I go often, about 2 or 3 times a month (from Canada) I only ever go for shopping and to fill my gas tank. I'd like to do touristy things if there is such a thing, or visit cool attractions. What do you suggest?
2. I am freaking drunk. I just drank 2 fishbowls of screwdrivers at the local watering hole. What is your favourite drink?
TQC, my cats have fleas. Fucking fleas. I don't know why I'm so horrified by this, but I am.
I'm taking them to the vet on Monday for a professional flea shampoo, but the poor babies are itching like crazy (and getting bugs all over my house!) What can I do to alleviate their itchiness in the meantime?
Ok so you're fooling around with someone for the second time and they hint that they want you to give them head. You playfully respond "Well what about me...?" They say "I only do that when I'm really wasted."
What do you walk away thinking? Do you still give them head? Why or why not?
This is a boring question. I'm working on a project for work and I need to know if anyone knows...
What is the difference between Comparable Store Sales (comp) and Revenue Growth? Does anyone know? I know it reflects on the previous years sales, but Comp numbers are usually only maybe half or a third of Revenue Growth numbers and if they both reflect the stores sales in the previous year, I don't understand why they are different numbers.
If you don't care about work babble...
What do you wear when you're home alone? PJS/undies/naked/regular clothes? What do you wear when you sleep? What do you think of people who sleep naked? Do you sleep naked?
So I was supposed to be at work at 8am. It's now 9:35. I am super sick, and called in sick yesterday. I've been trying to call my work every few minutes since about 7:50, but it seems the phone lines aren't working, as no matter which line I call I just get a busy signal (and they haven't called me, either).
What's wrong with my work's phone?
Has something like this ever happened to you?
Should I do anything other than continue to try and call? I don't know any of my coworker's cell phone numbers, so I can't call in that way.

You're shopping for a mattress with your SO. It's a crowded floor because there's a sale going on. Some 50 people milling about the store. Then, you're tapped on the shoulder. "Hi. I'll pay you $3,000 cash if you and your boyfriend/girlfriend have sex on one of these display mattresses". You look around, and there's a few children and old people in the crowd. "I'll distract the salespeople so they won't interfere, so you won't be interrupted. But you have to finish". Do you earn $3,000?
I'm working on an LJ for my husband because that's what we're going to use as our main communications while he's deployed. He's really into video games, especially those for the XBOX360. Where's a good place to find icons for games like HALO (in all its incarnations, especially HALO 3), Overlord, Call of Duty 4, Fable (okay, that's a PS2 game, but...), Dynasty Warriors Gundam, etc. Also I'd love to see Hexic icons because that's the only game on the XBOX that I don't suck at.
I tried keyword searches to little avail. Suggestions?
lol Some Jehovah's Witnesses showed up at my door about an hour ago. They woke me up. Boo. Luckily, they got the hint. I think it was the PJs and bed head, but they said they'd be back later! (damn it)
I can never get myself to say, " don't come back". I mean, I don't want to say it THAT way... but how do I get them to never come back? I'm always so nice and accept their stuff and tell them it's ok to come back... but I can never says, "DONT COME BACK OK!?"
So, um... what do you say to Jehovah Witnesses that come to your door?
My boyfriend and I rented a house with one of his friends from Sept '07 to May '08. He had a cat. In April, he asked me if I would take his cat when we moved out. He couldn't find a place to live that allowed cats, and he knew that the cat liked me and I would have to find a place that allowed pets because I have a dog. I took the cat. He and his now ex girlfriend had gotten the cat together in late 2004, but the cat had always lived with him. They broke up in early 2007.
Long story short, I took Smokey and assumed all responsibilities as of May 1st. She had never been to the vet under his care, so I took her - got all shots, tested for parasites, etc.
Guy I lived with has no interest in the cat or the ex, and I am moving 3 hours away in a couple of weeks - and plan on bringing the cat (since I consider her mine now). Ex-girlfriend is now calling me to "get Smokey back". Am I a horrible person for ignoring her phone calls? I barely know her - met her once or twice when I first started dating my boyfriend, and my former roommate and this chick were still together.
tl;dr version: The ex of my cat's former owner wants the cat "back". Can I ignore her and get away with it? What would you guys do?
I got a prescription of Lorazepam maybe a little over a year ago, by a doctor in Urgent Care. It's not something I take everyday, just when I feel an anxiety attack come on. I have only taken 3 in the past year because once I started seeing my therapist, I have needed it less.
Anyways, it expires on the 30th, and I would love to still have it around for just "one of those days", but i don't have the time or money to go into Urgent Care right now. This prescription has no refills.
If I took my bottle into the pharmacy, would they be able to replace only the old with new? Or would I have to go back to UC and try to get another prescription written up?
1: For those of you who use an ad blocker, can you recommend one from a trusted site? I can't help but feel like I'm about to download a trojan or something that will increase popups (even though that would be contradictory) or something that will send me junk mail.
2: If it's not too personal, who is your car insurance carrier and how much do you pay per month? Does it cover all drivers or just you?
3: I meant to ask this once and I'm not sure if I did because I don't remember the responses, so sorry if this sounds repetitive, but if you use a screen caption program, what do you use? As with the ad blocker, I'm looking for something legit that won't give me a virus or or increase popups.
Does anyone have a good meal planning website that they use? I haven't googled yet, but am planning on looking later. I am just curious if anyone has one that they would recommend.
eta: I am not tracking calories or weight loss, just trying to plan a menu for the week/two weeks and have it all on an easy to read chart so my husband sees it and doesn't eat all of the cheese before I use it in a recipe or something.
Two counties in Michigan have recently banned excessive pants-sagging. I think it's 3 or more inches of underwear (or uh, lack of underwear D:) showing that is considered 'excessive.'
Is this funny, ridiculous, or a good idea?
How about the fact that now they are being harsher than just a fine? Like, they can take you to jail and use it as probable cause to search you.
And does anybody know if they're doing this anywhere else?
Mostly, I think it's kind of funny. I think it's a little extreme to say it's probable cause to search you, but then... if you aren't doing anything, it shouldn't matter. But it's STILL invasion of privacy. Either way, I know I'm not the only person to not really want to view some guy with his pants around his knees and his entire ass hanging out. Supposedly it's making these counties poor because it's scaring away possible residents.
I was at the beach yesterday and a green/horsefly bit/stung whatever they do, to my leg. It looked like a mosquito bite, about the size of a dime, but now it's about the size of a pancake. I've been taking benadryl and putting cortaid on it. My question is:
Does this happen to you? How long does it usually last for you? At what point would you run your ass to the doctor?
You know how parents of the bride/groom will invite their friends and colleagues from work but the bride or groom don't really know these guests and these guests don't really know the bride and groom?
What do you usually do for gifts in this type of situation if you've ever been in it?
In my scenario, I know the mother of the bride because I work with her but I've only met the bride twice and the groom once. The mother of the bride told me to bring my mother with me (they've worked together) and we were thinking a card with money, $10 from each of us.
So parents are going out to a dinner tonight so I'm left to my own devices. Should I go to Subway and get either a roast beef or turkey and bacon sub or should I go a bit further to Wegmans for a chicken tender sub?
That is, of course, only if: You can go anywhere you want, cost doesn't matter. There won't be any family drama over it. You have a significant other and actually want to get married. Not Vegas and not anywhere in the Caribbean/Mexico/Hawaii.
In other words, where do you think is the most romantic place in the world, and why?
Or, if you already eloped or had a small destination wedding, where did you go? Would you recommend it for other couples to do the same?
Short version - My roommate for next year is Catholic, but I want to come out to her anyway. Do I do it now, while we're kinda friends, or wait until we get to know each other better? I'd like to keep her friendship.
What interests/stupid things do you automatically "Ugh" at when looking at people's profiles that you don't know?
Since thelifelist comm has been in the spot light there have been a lot of things on lists where I am like "Seriously?" Like, "I want to have four kids, one boy one girl and a set of fraternal twins with the boy coming out 3 minutes first!!1!" Annoyingly specific.
I really want to watch Law&Order:SVU, and the only way for me to do so would be for me to stream off of Netflix. Which kills the internet speed. Which would make my family...unhappy (they've been playing WoW all day).
Should I do so anyway? If not, what should I do? If yes, should I just watch now, or wait until they break for dinner, in hopes that they don't connect me with the slow internet? How bored are you?
I saw a spider today, and I'm not sure what it's called. It was a good inch long, it had black and yellow stripes, its legs were paired off in twos, and I noticed there were zigzags down the middle of its web.
There is a persistent rumor floating around that this song is a reaction to a propaganda poster in Communist China after the Tiananmen Square massacre of 1989. Is this so, or was it some kind of April Fools Day gag that took on a life of its own? If the story is true, where is the poster?
Today I was looking through my iPod and was determining the temperature of different songs. For example, "Supernatural Superserious" by REM is a relatively hot song, while "My Body is a Cage" by The Arcade Fire is colder.
TQC, am I crazy? Do any of you have weird thought processes like mine?
I decided the pageant thing was a scam afterall. I looked closer and the email it gave was email@example.com (or something very close to that). So, I obviously won't be trying out for it. Thanks to everyone for the responses, though. :)
Now, I've got a completely different idea on my mind. Has anyone here been in the Peace Corps? If you have/are, will you please tell me about it? If you haven't, would you volunteer?
Also, is anyone else obsessed with watching just one show or movie right now? I'm stuck on Gilmore Girls since a couple of my friends pointed out that it didn't suck and made me watch a few episodes.
Am I the only teen to have attempted to read the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan? (I failed miserably - I couldn't get further than the middle of book four coz Rand & Co. got boring/started pissing me off. :3)
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a T-rex, velociraptor, or some other prehistoric predator?
What was your first 'dream job' as a kid? (Mine was a tie between a teacher...... And a stunt pilot xD)
Someone in another comm just posted with an icon made from the same image as sejabop's! I thought it was TQC, and then I got really confused as I read the post, looking for a question. Has anything like this ever happened to you?
What's your favorite brand of root beer?
I am dying my hair tomorrow! Any time I change my hair I get excited for days. Do you? I am dying it red (it's already red, but it's going to be a less orange and more red shade) with black ends. Is this going to look like poop? :(
I ordered Interstella 5555 off the eBayz yesterday! What's the last movie you purchased?
How many (failed) attempts do you make at including somebody in your life before you just give up? Is there anybody you have tried over and over again to be friends with/spend time with/include in your life who you just don't seem to have any success with? How long have you been trying to keep in contact with them? What would it take for you to just give up on them?
