the last couple times i've bought gas at a certain gas station, it's never posted to my account. the last time it actually did post was june 17, so that's easily over $100 of gas that never actually got taken out of my account.

what would you do? is it all going to catch up to me and empty my account?

hi guys. i lost my wallet a few months ago and since then, i've been keeping everything in a small change purse, but it's getting really disorganized.

can you show me a picture of your wallet? where did you get it from?

i'm looking for something along the lines of this. http://ny-image1.etsy.com/il_430xN.33743461.jpg

also, can you recommend to me any sites where i can find a wallet like that? i mean, not that site but maybe a chain store, where i can see it before i buy it? i really want one that has a slot for change and can hold a checkbook.

thanks for all your help!

I need $$$

I'm thinking about opening an account on etsy and was wondering :

1) How does shipping work in terms of being the seller?
2) Does the seller charge a separate amount for shipping?
3) How do you determine how much shipping is going to be?
4)  What company do they use (Fed Ex, UPS)?
5) Say I list an item, the first month I pay the 20 cents, if no on buys it the next month, do I have to pay another 20 cents?
6) If you're a seller on etsy, how have your experiences in using them been?
7) Would you buy a crochet scarf that was made using Lions Brand Homespun yarn for $15? If no, home much would you pay for it?

I've read all of Etsy's Terms of Use, FAQ's, etc.

1. If someone is rude to you on LJ or a similar site, would you rather remember their username, or forget it?

I would rather forget, and I'm usually able if I'm quick enough to get away before I memorize their username. And I read my comments through e-mail, so I don't see their icon.

2. Do you ever confront the person about their rudeness or defend yourself if they insult you personally?

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. But if I do, I'm probably not going to forget who they are. I'm more likely to confront them if they're intelligent. If it's a troll, I probably won't bother.

3. What makes you butthurt?

I get butthurt when I make a point and either a) no one notices, or b) everyone disagrees with me. It's rather childish of me, though, so I usually don't make a big deal about it.

Random questions since Im bored!

1) Do you have any weird eating habits that others find bizarre? I have SO many (refusal to eat anything whole *I have to pick it apart into tiny small pieces and eat it bit by bit*, won't eat in front of others, there's a long list!). I always find it interesting to read about others

2) Do you think celebs who have offical myspaces actually check/maintain them? I would think they might check them once in a while, but I can't picture some busy celeb logging onto myspace, accepting friend requests, reading posts on their walls (or whatever its called on myspace), posting blogs, etc. I always just assume it's one of their assistants/fanclub managers who run/maintain them.

3) When someone is unnecessarily rude to you, for no real reason other than they just don't like you, do you stand up for yourself, or just ignore it and hope they will get fed up you're not letting it get to you?

I used to just take it, because I hate confrontation, But I've realized that people will treat you how you let them treat you

4) Have you ever been accused of lying about something, when in fact you were telling the truth?

5) Does it bother you when others think you are lying about something you are in fact being honest about, or do you just not care since you know the truth?

It kind of bothers me that they would think I'm a dishonest person. Other than that, I don't care since I know the truth

6) What do you do when you achieve a major accomplishment, and you're quite proud of yourself, and rather than others being happy for you, they take out their jealousy by being bitter and hostile? Do you just brush it off and bask in your glory, or does it upset you that others are making your achievements something to be insignificant?

My passport expired a while ago. I've been googling passport renewal, but every site that comes up is just instructions on how to renew a passport by mail, and one of the caveats is that you were at least 16 when the previous passport was issued, which I was not.

saying thank you

My husband and I are moving. There is a ten day gap between when we settle on the house we are selling and can settle on the house we are buying. During that time, a friend of ours is letting us stay in her house. We have three dogs and a cat, so this is no small favor. She's going to be out of the country for a month starting the day after we move in with her, so we are basically housesitting, which she appreciates. Still, I'd like to do something nice for her. She refuses to accept money for rent and she's even giving us a hard time about paying the electric bill that month, even though she won't even be in the house using the elctricity. I'm still going to try to find a way to at least do that, but I'd also like to do something nice for her to say thank you. She isn't a very materialistic person so gifts are tough. Besides doing normal chores around the house while we're there, can anybody think of a gesture or gift as a way to say thank you? She's really saved us by doing this.

STALKERZ!

Some weird person added me on lj, and added a few of my friends and their friends. This is creepy. The lj was just made. The stalker only speaks in Russian but says nothing interesting, just some crap about some corporation. This person's only added friends are my friends and one of their friends. I asked her wtf and she said (in Russian) that she is a "detective"

TQC, why do you think I'm being stalked? Does the government want to kidnap me and steal my knowledge?

I assume she is a female, do you assume most people you meet on LJ are female?

Paging Dr. LJ

Last night after I got home from work I sat down on the couch to read, but instead I fell asleep and the next thing I know I wake up 4 hours later groggy with an unquenchable thirst. I don't really feel sick or achey, but still seem to be tired and am drinking at least a bottle of water every couple of hours. It's just weird.

So what's your diagnosis TQC? Am I sick? Do I have the AIDS? Did I get abducted by aliens? What's wrong with me?

My idea is that there's someone out there keeping people hostage on an island, wooho~! And once he/she gets hold of them he/she cuts at least one foot off and tosses it in the water, thus it ends up floating up on the beach. Why one foot? Because I expect you need two to swim. ;D

have you had your hpv shot(s)?

backstory: i have 5 piercings and 2 tattoos, and none of them really bothered me that much. i've never been a big fan of shots (who is?) but i can handle them. i like to think that i have a high pain tolerance.

i had my first hpv shot two months ago and.. i can't describe the pain i was in. it seemed like it lasted forever -- much longer than a normal shot -- and i felt incredibly nauseous. the color drained from my face and i passed out for a few seconds afterwards. they put me in a dark room and gave me water until i looked human again. my next shot is due in a few days and i am dreading it like nothing else in the world. they said that because i am so little i might be better off having it put in my leg, but it's never been a problem before with other shots.

so, am i the only one who has had an experience like this? when you got your hpv shot, what did it feel like? is it just me, or is it different in some way?

Would it matter if the person is doing a screening from the state, and they have been trained in doing the screening? Or do you think this sort of thing is best left up to doctors?

2. What's the minimum yearly salary it would take for you to move to Antarctica? You'll live on a base with generators pumping in heat, so it'll be quite livable indoors. Your nearest neighbors are 25 miles away, accessible only by snowmobile.

My ex proposed to me on my birthday. I love my engagement ring, it's very pretty and delicate and I don't usually like engagement rings.

It was a mutual breakup and we're planning to stay friends. He said that I could keep the ring since it was kind of a birthday present. I told him I wasn't sure if I want to keep it. I love it, but I don't want it to keep reminding me of our relationship and holding me back from moving on.

Poll #1234690 Weird questions

You're at the mall. It's the after-Thanksgiving Day sale and the place is packed. You had greasy Mexican food for lunch, and your friend bought you an iced mocha, and suddenly, you have to poop REALLY REALLY bad. You manage to get into the bathroom, and there's only 1 stall available, and for some reason, the door to that stall is missing. The other stall is out of order. The working toilet is nearest to the door, so if you poo majestically here, anyone walking into the bathroom will see you in your pants-around-ankles glory. However, there is another bathroom downstairs. You're not sure if you can hold it in that long though. It is a crowded day and people are coming in and out of the bathroom readily. What do you do?

When the emergency crew arrives, it's reported that 3 people died in the group stumble. Everybody points their finger at you. The question is, if you accidentally hit someone with your car, you can be tried with manslaughter, but if you accidentally knock someone to their death down some stairs, can you also be tried with manslaughter?

Under her arm is a book that's titled WHY LIBERALS ARE GAY AND HATE AMERICA. She gets to the counter and pays for her purchases with a credit card. Close to the end of the transaction, she gets a phone call, and takes her call and package and walks away.

Does it bother you when people refer to Barack Obama as black? It bothers me.

He is half black and half white. Why completely denounce his white side? He is equal parts black and white; can't we call him white, too? Why must the black side be the one people identify him as? If he wins, I think he should be known as the first multiracial president, and not first black president.

I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS THIS AMIRITE (PLEASE)?

If you have kids, did you give them a family name?

If you don't have kids, but are planning on having kids, will you use a family name? What names do you think you'll want to use?

Don't laugh. I want to name my son Stephen. It's a good name. I also like the name James for a boy. If it's a girl, maybe Meg or Emmy or something like that. I'm particular to Ginger as well. I'm not really big on using family names.

I really want to move out of the country (I live in the US) within the next year or so but I don't know where to begin. I want to be educated and prepared before the move is actually made. How difficult is it to move to another country? How do I go about this? What do I plan? Give me some idea, stories, tips...anything!

Edit: Sorry...hope to move to Ireland

vampires, zodiac and men tights...

1. With all of the Twilight hullabaloo going on lately, I've been thinking. Why is the vampire the only classical monster out there who has been given a make over? A little over a hundred years ago vampires where seen as demons, violent spirits and reanimated corpses bent on destruction and bloodshed. Now, they are tortured souls that sparkle or they're filthy rich aristocrats who live the high life. They even help us to learn how to count and sell breakfast cereal.

How come we haven't done this with other things that go bump in the night?

Werewolves are still seen as violent monsters and not as misunderstood puppies who only need a cuddle. Zombies lurk in our nightmares and make us sharpen our machetes. Why aren't they seen as people with an eating disorder and in need of a good bath?

Why did vampires get the special treatment?

2. Forget about your sign, what I want to know, in your experience do most people you know fit their zodiac stereotype? Are Cancers actually mama boys? Are Virgos fuss pots? Are Capricorns snobs? Are Aquarians loons? Are Leos attention whores? And so on and so forth.

Can you give an example?


3. How do you feel about this recent trend of tights for men? Yay or Nay? Why?

Do you ever get random impulses to cancel plans for no reason?

What should I do to reassure myself that my camping trip (me + 3 friends) tomorrow isn't going to be a complete failure? I have that icky gnawing feeling in my stomach.

How many people are in your home right now? (6)

I accidentally just told my boyfriends mother to fuck off. (She read a text on his phone that I sent him but she thought it was for her) Then my dog ate the skin off my fried chicken when I wasn't looking.

How much of a pay increase/salary would it take for a job offer to be able to motivate you to move to the opposite end of the Earth from wherever your family/friends live?

I think my computer is overheating, or just really dusty inside or something, because when it has to work a little bit extra [like watching any kind of video file] the fan suddenly gets REALLY LOUD.
Can I fix this myself? I'm not sure if the whole tower is overheating because it happens just after I turn it on as well as when it's been on for a while and it FEELS cool [it's not covered in stuff or anything] and it's sitting on wood not the carpet. Should I open it up and try to clean it? [The dust, if there is any] Will I die if I do?! SHOULD I CALL A TECHNICIAN WHICH WILL COST LIKE A BILLION QUID?!

Do you have (a) recurring dream(s)?

I've had this one dream about five times now. Someone calls/texts me to tell me Stephen Colbert died in a car crash and I cry like a bitch.

Onesies

Okay. So my brother's wife is due in September, with a boy! They live out of state. He wants his son's first picture to be in a pinstriped yankees onesie or outfit, HOWEVER... We can't find any in newborn or 0/3 mos. sizes.

TQC, through your vast knowledge of stores and interwebs, do you know where we might be able to get one (preferably new)?
I have googled and amazon'd and searched the Yankees & MLB sites high and low, still no size newborn - 0/3month onsies *sigh*

Hit me with your best shot.


Also, what is your favorite sports team(s)

OMG KITTIES

1. Does anybody here have more than one cat?

1a. Any advice?

We have one full-grown cat, and we're about to adopt two kittens, a boy and a girl. (We plan to have them both fixed at the SPCA, so no worries there.)


2. If you're not a cat person... What did the mama bull say to the baby bull?
