Is anyone here in the Colorado Springs area interested in an older cat (or five? =( Or any number between one and five? )? If not, do you know where someone might be able to take these cats where they'll be happy and won't be euthanized? A very good family friend is in a position where he can no longer take care of his kitties, and we've all been looking but options seem scarce.

Have you ever had to give up a pet? What happened?

Do you have pets currently? Will you tell me about them?

You hang out with some new friends for the first time outside of the college setting. You are really interested in this guy/girl & found out earlier in the day he/she feels the same way. Alcohol is involved, thus no one can leave. Because of a lack of sleeping space, you end up sleeping on a full sized bed with said guy/girl you're attracted to. Eventually, you cuddle and talk about things for the next two hours & find out you have a whole lot in common. Theres another person in the room sleeping on the floor. And boy/girl says to you "if only so & so wasnt here..." definitely implying something sexual could happen.

Do you think boy/girl is merely attempting to get some? Or interested in seeing if a relationship could happen?

EDIT: I should just hit it, y/n?

Can women suffer from pms so badly that they litterly grind their teeth because of it? Someone told me this once, but I'm not sure if it's something isolated or not.

swamp cooler problems

i am having some sort of weird problem with my swamp cooler, where it's refusing to put out cold air all the time, esp during the heat of the day (which really helps when i live in the desert :P). my dad (who owns the property and maintains said cooler) has checked the pads, the pump and the water lines at least four times this week and it all seems to be working (one time, a line was pinched and he unsnagged it where it had snagged), so damn if either of us know why it's doing this. he's coming over tomorrow again to look things over.

i would think it is not the motor since the fan part of the cooler runs just fine. it turns off, it turns on, it blows the air. it just ain't cool air some of the time.

anyone have experience w this? suggestions for things that my dad should look at? (please don't suggest an AC unit because that's a stupid thing to have in the desert--too expensive w our triple-digit temperatures. swamp cooler = cheaper/works better/only doesn't work when it's humid, which is rare.)

I read here that a sound machine can actually help people sleep by providing white noise.

I have a regular 9-5 office job that I work Mon-Fri. I also freelance graphic design (business cards, flyers, myspace layouts, etc) on the side (mostly I reserve this for weekends when I am free) but I need to start saving and in a hurry. I am preparing to move from Michigan to Atlanta, Georgia in about 4 months and I need to find a second part-time job that is pretty easy (so that I am not dead in the mornings for my fulltime job) so I can dedicate those checks to my savings account. I am having a hard time deciding where to start looking.

Let's say you have been disabled for three years. Crutches, canes, wheelchairs, you've had to use it all here and there, because you just plain can't walk well and you're in pain all the time. You were diagnosed after seeing three different doctors and told you had a disorder that does not go away, and you'll pretty much be permanently like this.

Then a new doctor says he thinks the diagnosis is wrong. Completely wrong. And that the problem is actually surprisingly simple and he can fix you. COMPLETELY. You'll be able to walk, run, dance, jump, anything you want. You'll be as good as new! I mean, it'll require months of painful treatments and rehab, but still... FIXED.

How would you feel about this? Would you be pessimistic, optimistic, excited, scared, nervous, uncertain?

And if it did turn out to all be true, and he fixes you, what would be the FIRST newly-possible physical thing you'd do in celebration? (no, not sex, you've been able to have sex before so that's a non-issue)

Dear Abby,

I'm finally going to be done (for good! forever!) with my shitty fastfood job on August 17. I'm trying to decide whether or not I want to be honest or keep mum about a hurtful nickname my coworkers have given a Russian guy who doesn't speak much English.

There are four Russians and one Ukrainian working at Micky D's this summer - they come over for seasonal work during tourist season - and the only guy and only one working in grill, Vladimir, has attracted the hostility of everyone else for no particular reason. They've decided to call him "Vulva", and neither he nor any of the other Russians/Ukrainian know what the word means, as their English is rudimentary at best. Vladimir knows so little English that even if I wanted to, I doubt I could tell him what his insulting nickname means.

I've been debating telling his girlfriend, Alla, exactly what his nickname means, because it feels dishonest to let people be so horrible to him in a way he can't understand. That said, it'd probably just make him miserable and angry - and the other people on crew wouldn't necessarily quit calling him Vulva, anyway.

So. Should I find a way to let the guy know before I quit, or is ignorance bliss in this case?

I really need some help here.

I'm in Scotland and ever since February this year (Earlier for some) there has been so many repairs needing done in my flat. The door lock is held on with tape, there is a leak behind the toilet, the smoke alarm doesn't work, the shower doesn't work, the boiler is needing replaced and mainly, the washing machine is broke.

I have asked my landlord time and time again about the washing machine (I do want them all done but I don't have the time to handwash all my clothes and linen and I am nowhere near a laundrette, so the washing machine is priorioty right now) and every time he says 'I'll be in touch in a few days' or 'I'll get someone sent out' This is on the occasions that I can actually get in touch with him.

I did owe him some rent money, which I am now paying up so I didn't chase it too much as I was in the wrong as well.

But now I'm getting damn pissed. What can I do? I keep calling and asking and he keeps delaying it all. It's getting rridiculous now.

Any help much appreciated.

(Sorry if this is overkill on the subject, haven't seen anything in the immediate past.)

Why can't Georgia just let South Ossetia be part of Russia like North Ossetia is? (Or be an independent state?)

Is it because there's people in S. Ossetia who do still want to be a part of Georgia?

To everybody except you, your SO is actually close to 500lbs, but everybody's just assumed you're a fatty chaser (a 'blubber bounder' in this case) and haven't bothered to point out the real facts to you. Now, through some revelation, you discover that all along, your SO weighs close to a quarter of a ton. They still look the same to you, but now, you're aware that you've been mistaken all along.

loft beds, part deux

hi ti queue si. didja miss me?

i move into the dorms in a week. i think i've solved my loft bed dilemma... sort of. we're going to use the base head/foot board set to loft one bed, and then i guess get a plain bedframe to put the other bed under it at a 90 degree angle. yes, we could bunk them, and we will if we have to... but the loft bunk thing is just cooler, y/y?

so this (not my picture) is what the loft will look like when we've set it up, sans bed on the bottom. how on earth is this stable? i've seen several other lofts on photobucket and flickr that all have some kind of bracer bar in the back for the bottom set of supports. i don't think we'll have that in the dorm, so... what d'you suggest? the only thing we've come up with is taking a 2x4 and getting some kind of screw-on clamps to attach it to the bottom supports. we aren't allowed to drill or nail into anything.

My brother in law is getting married the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

1. The bridesmaids dresses are going to be black, so I feel like I can't wear my standard black dress to the wedding (I'm not a bridesmaid). I haven't been to a fall/winter wedding in forever. WTF does one wear that isn't black and is appropriate to a fall/winter wedding?

2. My husband is a groomsman. He called his brother to ask about tux rental, and my BIL said that the tuxes would cost $130, but that his friends were complaining that it was too expensive. My BIL is going to look and see if he can find them cheaper. If your boyfriends/husbands/dads whatever have rented tuxes recently - is that about a normal price?

1) I broke my elbow in an accident in may and had surgery on it on friday (long story about why there’s so much time in between. I now have a screw in my arm and I can’t use my left hand (I’m left handed.) How much should I try to claim from the insurance?

2) The past six months or so I’ve noticed that when I eat certain raw fruits and vegetables my lips start stinging and I get a prickly feeling in my throat. It happened with melon today and a piece of lychee yesterday. It’s happened with raw carrot and certain kind of nuts and also with soya chocolate flavours pudding. Am I becoming allergic to fruits and vegetables? Why would that happen? It’s not bad enough to make me stop eating anything but could it get worse?

So, someone comes up to you using one of the lamest pick up lines ever:

"Did it hurt? When you fell from heaven?"
"Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk by again?"
"I lost my number. Can I have yours?"

What do you do?
Has this ever happened to you?
Or have you ever used a very lame pick up line? (And if so, what was it?)

Does anyone else in here a fan of Dragons' Den?

What's been your favourite good product? Your favourite bad one?

It's one of the few shows my entire family can agree on, so we watch it a lot. Of course, it's way better watching the completely incompetent inventors then the good ones.

Do any of you think Peter Jones is hot?

I just got my first office job and I feel like I am not going to be able to handle the responsibilities. My predecessor made a training handbook for me and when I ask her questions she often tells me to refer to the handbook, but I don't understand it that well and am not the type of person who can process written instructions quickly or clearly. Most of my job will be done totally independently and there isn't any "mentor" I can look to for help after this next week.

If you've gone from working in team-oriented jobs to an independent office job, how long did it take you to adjust? I know I'll "get it" eventually but people are getting impatient with me in the meantime.

It's a rap song, may be kind of older, I really don't know, but it's about brotherhood (between gang members?) and includes lines like, "I consider you my next of kin," and something like, "in a second/no second thoughts I would die for you."

Do you know what song I'm talking about?

do any of you do the paid LJ surveys?
have you actually earned any LJ Gift Certificates or do you just get screened out?

i try to every month, but i always get opted out. i wouldn't mind so much, but it seems like it takes you pretty far into the survey before telling you that you don't qualify. :[

a friend of mine recently had a good experience using OKCupid! and really wanted me to fill out a profile since she knows i've been having really bad luck meeting people and is sad that i'm perpetually single. i said yes and made one 'cause i was kind of drunk last night but i'm still really uneasy about having it/using the site.

has anyone else used the site OKCupid! and had good experiences?
what do you think of those sites?
what do you think of the people who use it?

My old roommate has introduced me to the TV show Spaced.

For those who like it, who is your favorite character?

Do you think Daisy and Tim look cute together? As, like, a couple?

What was your favorite episode?

Don't you wish they would make just one more season? I felt like I was just starting to connect with the characters. :(

I will be applying to big girl jobs shortly, and one company I want to apply to has an option to send your resume and they'll try to find what jobs they have available that would suit you. Does this seem like it a good idea, or should I just apply to specific jobs?

For those who don't care about my job hunt, what is your favorite quote from one of the Overheard in ___ sites?

fairy tale!

Ok, I can't look for this on IMDB because I have no idea what I'm looking for at all.
I remember renting a movie from Blockbuster in my early teens. In the beginning, this girl from NYC goes to Central Park and is somehow whisked away into fairy-tale land. It's not a cartoon. I remember there being lots of the usual fairy tale characters - dwarfs, talking trees, whatever.

Anyway, it was a long movie. At least 3 hours, probably longer. It was at least 2 VHS tapes, I know that. I also remember a scene in some town in this land where there were LOTS of hearts all over the place. Like, some love-obsessed town...floating hearts, heart-shaped buisnesses, whatever. Something about a black sheep at this part of the story.

This is a horrible description, I know. I feel like I'm describing a dream, but I REALLY want to find this movie! Does any of this ring a bell with anyone at all??

*EDIT: YAY THANK YOU!! :D Into my Netflix The 10th Kingdom goes. I hope it's as fun to watch now as I remmeber it being.
