As sexist and old-fashioned as this is, lets assume that a male/female couple are dating/in the first few months of a relationship.
The woman lets the man pay for their dates, as she purchases lingerie for his enjoyment. Thus, both parties are being 'treated' to something.
What do you make of this situation?
Do you think one hears what they want to hear, and disregards the rest?

Do you know someone who is famous/infamous on LJ in real life?
Which one of these do you like better? And explain why.
1. Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt?
2. Alice In Wonderland or The Wizard Of Oz? (the movies, the books, whichever you prefer to compare)
3. Blackstreet or Dru Hill?
4. Blue Jeans or Black Jeans?
5. Shawn Wayans or Marlon Wayans?
1. Ice Cream. It's creamier.
2. I always liked the 1951 animated version of Alice. It's so trippy. I'm sure it would be one of my all time favorites if I were the kind to do drugs.
3. Blackstreet were better singers, but Dru Hill made better songs.
4. Blue. Black jeans fit my unusually shaped body weird.
5. Marlon. Not only is he funnier, but he also seems to have the ability to hold a movie on his own without assistance from his bro, and he's better at playing non-comedic roles.

I just found out my roommate is a Christian and a member of the big Christian group on campus. I am a butch-ish lesbian. Will this end well?
TQC, my aunt and cousins are coming to visit tomorrow =[ Is there any polite way I can tell my cousin to keep his fucking hands off my camera?
I plan on putting it somewhere he won't see it but I know he'll ask about it within 2 minutes of walking through the door. He always takes at least 150 myspace pictures of himself that I have to delete later. I'm also worried about something bad happening to it.
Does he really need an SLR to take myspace pictures of himself? Can't he use his own camera for that?
whats the best way to start a acting career with no prior experience? i want to get into acting really bad but i dont know how or what to do should i take a class or do public thearter? do i need experience for that? or what should i do
So. This is pretty much the situation I'm in right now.
--I currently live in the Los Angeles area.
--I despise living here.
--I don't have a job. I've been looking, without much luck.
--I'm basically homeless. (Currently staying with a friend and her family, but they've said I need to be out ASAP.)
--I have $2500 coming to me within the next week.
--I'm in college, but it's a community school that I'm not particularly committed to. The semester just started this week.
--Awhile back, I visited Humboldt County and fell ass-over-teakettle in love with the place.
--Rent on a three-bedroom house in Humboldt is comparable to that on a studio apartment in LA.
--There is a community college in Humboldt that I could attend.
--Pretty much the only thing keeping me in LA is the possibility of getting job at Disneyland, which a. pays well and b. will give me free admission when I visit Walt Disney World next year.
It seems silly to run off to Humboldt on a whim, but it also seems silly to stay in a place that I've always hated and can't really afford to live, just because of a job that I don't even have yet.
What do you think, TQC? Should I stay or should I go?
DAMMIT, WHAT DO YOU WANT?!

Why are you named what you are?
I just found out I'm named (first and middle name) after my dad's parents' stillborn baby in the 60s, and also my mom's baby doll with the same name, also in the 60s. My mom never met my dad until the late 70s/early 80s, so this was total coincidence. I am named after a zombie baby. Is this weird or cool? Because I am kind of weirded out, "Patricia Anne" is not that common.

have any good tips for getting pet stains out of carpet?
i've tried a ton of shit, and while a lot of it works ok, nothing really great. the stains are a combination off piss and for some reason our new dog keeps vomiting DX
what about blood off of a wall?
my gerbil escaped and my cat attacked him ; _ ;
ETA: The pet stains are from a new dog I RESCUED. thank you. she's not used to my house yet, and I'm working on the housebreaking. Don't judge me.
Also, my gerbils are kept in a SEPARATE ROOM from my other animals. like i said one ESCAPED. it's not like i'm letting them run around my house.
and... my house actually smells pleasant. the downstairs is tile and the stains are only upstairs and i get them out asap. the question here was to see if maybe i could get something better.
OH! and the gerbil is ok. the only thing that got hurt on him was his right eye. :[

Besides cursing and/or hanging up, what's the best response you've ever given to a telemarketer? How did he/she respond to that?
I’m in accounting for a business, and today I am really frustrated.
We are a vendor for a large company, and we always let orders ship for them, no matter what. Even if there are past due invoices on their account.
When I first started here over a year ago, I once placed their account on hold for past due invoices. My boss brought me into the office, and told me they are a large business, who have been doing business with us for a long time, and that we don’t put them on credit hold.
Now they have about $2600 past due [we’re a smaller company, so this is a lot to me/us!], and after numerous attempts at contacting their Accounts Payable, this balance is still left unpaid, and he has not given me payment status.
It makes me upset, just because they’re a big company with lots of money and business, doesn’t mean they should have superiority when it comes to paying bills.

It's my birthday. My golden birthday actually--I'm 22. I magically have the day off (I didn't ask for it, it was just happily scheduled in that way) but none of my friends do. We're going out tonight, but now i have the whole day in front of me with no plans! I don't want to fuck around on the internet all day...I love the idea of having the whole day to myself to do whatever I want, but somehow I can't think of shit to do. So what do you think TQC, what should I do?
ETA: It just started pouring. :( But when it clears up, I am going to do a lot of things people suggested. Hurray!

So, my dad's company (a big finance company in Manhattan) has been going through some issues, so they've been laying off and firing a ton of people. My dad hates this because he goes to work to tell people they don't have a job anymore.
Yesterday, he was telling me that he fired (not laid off) a girl he hired about a year ago. He said she was basically an idiot, but had the company not been having problems, he would've giving her more time to shape up. This woman is 24, single and 7 months pregnant.

You're in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling toward you. You reach down and you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping. Why is that?
i have a single serving mac and cheese from swanson and a a single serving pizza from tony's. i've been baking all day and forgot to eat so im going to eat one to hold me over.

Only child, or youngest child. Clever, well-read, but socially inept. Very likely to be in a relationship with a man twice her age. Animal lover with at least two cats.

i got my tongue web pierced a few years ago and sometimes it'll just get swollen and irritated but nothing major.
A couple days ago I was at the dentist and she had to make a mould of my mouth, and the ring got caught in the bottom tray...the dentist kinda tugged at it for a second before I could move her hands away to get it out myself.
At first it was fine, but the next day i woke up and it was all irritated and swollen, and this morning I woke up to it being even more irritated than normal it even affected my speech. It's gone down a tad bit throughout today but its still really swollen and hurts like a bitch
If i were to take out the piercing would it heal all fucked up? Should I just wait till after this heals to take it out?
WTF DO I DOOO
ps yes i know it was a stupid idea to get it pierced in the first place but whatever whats done is done
two unrelated questions

The crazier the flavor combinations, the better! (And no, said combinations cannot taste like ass.)

Hahahaa, I did order the "hot chocolate with a shot of espresso" and my friend working at the counter looks at me funny and goes, "So, a mocha?" Drrrr. :D
There was a photograph on one of my newsfeeds recently that I can't find again. It was, of a man taking a photograph with a woman, with his hand over her face, blocking her from the camera.

Which one do you like better? And explain your choice.
1. Basil or Oregano?
2. Stevie Wonder or Ray Charles?
3. Sin City(the movie) or 300? (both of them were based off graphic novels by Frank Miller)
4. Peach or Nectarine?
5. Renting DVD's or Buying DVD's?
1. Basil. It's sweeter and the flavor isn't as overpowering so it's okay to use a lot of it.
2. Stevie Wonder. While Ray was more innovative, Stevie's music was more interesting and fun to listen to.
3. Sin City. I thought it was better done style-wise, and it embraced it's silliness, whereas 300 took itself too seriously.
4. Peach. I like the fuzz.
5. Buying. While renting is conveinent, so if you pick a movie you hate you won't really regret it, it's depressing to have to return a movie that you've fallen in love with after the first viewing.
I just passed a big licensing exam! Go me. I never get excited, but that felt pretty good.
What does it take to get you really happy about something?
I have Scarlet Fever. Who in the world gets Scarlet fever?! I do. hmph.
