If you were in the hospital, by yourself, would you expect your SO to at least text you once a day, just to see how you were doing?

I'm in the hospital about 20 minutes away from home, so my boyfriend doesn't get to come see me that often. He is the only one I have in the area (my family is all back in Boston, I'm in LA), so I figured he would at least pretend to be concerned, but so far, he hasn't called or texted, it's all been up to me. It's kind of pissing me off. Do I have the right to get upset? Or should I just brush it off as him being a guy?

Do you pee while talking to people on the phone?

I dunno. I think I pee too loud. I always have to tell people I need to put the phone down for a second and then go really fast. I'm also always afraid that I'll drop my phone in the toilet.

Which brings me to another exciting bathroom question:

What have you accidentally dropped in the toilet?

I dropped my underwear in the toilet once (don't ask). It was at school in the dorm bathroom, so I couldn't just walk out with soaked underwear. Aaaaawkwaaaard.

several questions:

i was watching tekken kinkreet and at the end i was kind of hopin for the pain charecter to embrace his darkness and run around the city killing poeple, do you sometimes find yourself rooting for the bad guy?

what if the budda came to you in a dream, and you expect to learn the secrets of the univers but instead he talks to you about how wonderful toyota makes trucks, would you in teh morning think about buying a truck? (the excperience was magical to you for some reason)

lets say you could go into space but when you came back everyone else is 5o years older than you, would you still want to go?

and lastly; would you rather date a guy with a shaved face, or a face with some bad ass stubble?


Come 1st of September I will be studying part time while holding down a full time job. The study load will be rather heavy, and my working hours tend to be long. Has anyone ever done the same thing before, and how did you manage it? I'm looking for advice basically on how to do well at both instead of dying at both ends.

I hate checking the pool for chlorine and pH (even though it's really easy and takes about 5 minutes) What's your least favorite part of your job?

When I visit my friend's house, she tells everyone not to flush toilet paper down the toilet, but to place it into the trash can. The only time I have ever encountered anything like this was at a cottage, where the toilet used a septic tank system. But she lives in the middle of the city. Personally I think it's gross, since during parties you go into the bathroom and see wads of toilet paper with shit on them and it kinda smells....

Why does she enforce this rule? Any idea? Anyone ever visit someone who does this? Or do you do this in your bathroom? Why????

Birthday presents

One of my boyfriend's favourite bands is touring in November. Sadly the venue in our home town has sold out. However tickets are still available in Edinburgh which is an hour's drive away. However it's during the week and Boyfriend has no holiday allowance left. I want to get these tickets for his birthday but would it end up being too much hassle? To get to the venue he would probably have to make back the time and there's no guarantee his boss would agree.

Or should I just go ahead and get tickets?

Edit: The band is Feeder. I'm not too bothered about seeing them myself, I just think it would be a nice present :)

My screen name is "A Cerebral Mosh". What does that make you think of? 

What's for breakfast/lunch? Or even brunch?

2:  What color(s) do you like to wear when you're feeling good?

I dowloaded The Sims 1 for the PC a few days ago & have wasted my time away since playing it.

I had a copy for the PS2 a few years ago and you could change their outfits, accessories, hair etc more than what you can  with the version I have now. Is it because I've downloaded it or was it a different version I had?

Tell me about your Sims?

Where do you go to download things for them?

Hypothetical, amirite?

You're very good friends (no, you don't wanna do him) with a guy, and lately he's been not just talking to you less, which is ok, but when you do talk he's very impersonal about the things he says (as in he'll talk about the weather, but not stuff that is actually happening in his life like he would a week ago).  So you confront him saying hey, why are you treating me like a sometimes friend and not a good friend, and he says to you "I'm afraid that being good friends with you will scare other girls away."  (Keep in mind that you're 100 miles away from each other).

How the fuck do you react to that?

Following a surprisingly poor encounter with a police officer (You didn't realize that people could bleed THAT much) you're now on the run with everyone and their brother chasing after you with sharp pointy things and things that look like they're on fire. You tried talking with them, but all that really ended up causing was a large man throwing what looking like his child at you-- a child that happened to be on fire.

The police, angry that you shot one of their co-workers seventeen times in the face, have decided to just let this mob of very angry people kill you in ways that would make even the most hardened torturer vomit until his face was paralyzed. However, you feel that you shouldn't be forced into sea urchin sodomy or whatever monstrous torture they're planning to do to you after they get out of that buffet across the street (damned if it wasn't fried chicken night) and are going to take action while they're distracted.

What will you do?

Enjoy yourself some of that fine fried chicken, and hope that they wait until after they eat to kill you?

I currently live in a two bedroom apartment in upstate NY with a roommate.  She moved in 1 month ago.  The landlord wants us to sign a new lease.  I went under (what I thought was going to be) a month to month lease when my old roommate left in April.  Here are my problems:

1.  It turns out the landlord had me sign a year lease with a 90 day out, not 60 like he told me (I know I was stupid  to trust him on that and not read it carefully, but whats done is done).  I told him before my new roommate moved in that I still wanted a month to month because I'm a college student and may transfer soon. 

2.  I don't like the roommate.  She is messy, eats my food, and is emotionally needy (I don't have the time to do homework AND listen to all of her problems. Yes, she has a therapist).  "Why don't you talk to her?" Because she gets all upset and emotional when I ask her to do things like put her laxatives in the medicine cabinet (Its ok, they're fine on the mocrowave...). 

3.  I don't like the landlord.  I feel like he's trying to screw me over.  He didn't give me a copy of my current lease.  He didn't get us a copy of our new lease to sign until she had moved in for three weeks.  Theres more, but too much to get into. Seems fishy all around.

I want to move, but my roommate doesn't have the money to keep moving around and thinks the 90 day out is too much as well as she's looking into getting another job somewhere.   He doesn't want to budge on it.  I feel guilty for having her move in here and then say i'm going to move out a month later.  What should I do??

last night I had a dream that I was sitting outside at a coffee shop with my two best friends, current (new) boyfriend, and my most recent ex. I remember thinking it was "play nice with the ex" time -- we had just run into each other at the coffee shop and decided to be civil/friendly with each other. and I talked about cute romantic stuff with my boyfriend in front of him.

then, later, I was in my boyfriend's room (he was in a different room) with my friend Elisia. she pointed out a book to me, and I picked it up. and I flipped through it and realized that it was my sketchbook. my boyfriend had stolen my sketchbook, and on one of the pages he had written something sweet.

I just got in a car wreck and now my damn back hurts, and I feel like making generalizations against the driving habits of girls, teenagers, and people in shitty-looking cars with bad brakes.

When was the last time you were in a wreck (if ever)?

Did you make generalizations against the other driver?

Were you hurt at all?  If my back hurts just a little bit, would you reccomend that I go to minor med, or should I just stick it out and see if it goes away after a while?  I mean, it is to be expected that you'll hurt a little after any car wreck.

Inspired by the post over at ONTD:

What is the one bad!fanfic review journal where they spork fics in the vein of MST 3000?

& What is the most hilarious/disturbing fanfic pairing/fandom that you've ever read?

As they danced through the game, she looked over her right shoulder, and of the three remaining queens, only one returned her gaze. They paused a moment, mutually entranced. There was a quiet beauty to this Queen of Spades, a sort of demure passion that the Queen of Hearts, with her typical erotic bent, could only think of claiming for herself. Red on black, the way it was supposed to be.

Status dictated that they could never be together. Always sandwiched between the self-righteous King and arrogant Jack. But the Queen of Hearts had hope for their love. She had faith that someday, somehow, they would be face-to-face.

That day, however, seemed farther and farther away all the time.

And besides, the game was almost over, and the stacks were getting fat. She could hear the groans of the aces, and she knew that they didn't have much longer.

Sadly, she glanced over at the Queen of Spades, who was trying to fend off the advances of the King of Diamonds. That cad. The Queen of Hearts sneered at him in distaste.

It looked like the Queen of Hearts would be “playing solitaire"

How well do YOU have to know someone who died (or their surviving family members) before you will go to their funeral?

A guy who I know and went to university with's younger brother died this weekend in a car crash and I don't know if I should go to his funeral or if it would be weird because I didn't actually know the guy who died.

Okay, Dr. Eljay

How do I know if I have a social disorder or if I'm just a screwed-up freak?
And if I am a screwed-up freak how do is that different from having some kind of social disorder?

But seriously, would seeing a psychiatrist give me a more in-depth answer as to why I feel/behave the way I do? I don't want to go on medication, I just want a diagnosis - is a psychiatrist's role primarily to prescribe drugs, or can I seek a different kind of analysis from them? Every single therapist I've been to has said I'm "normal", yet the evidence speaks to the contrary.

Salad (spinach with apple pieces, pecans, feta cheese, and red onion with raspberry vinaigrette for me [or prob garlic ranch for bf])
2b. If I should make pasta, what kind of pasta should I make? (i.e. what should I put in it to make it delicious)?

I was helping some friends pick out a homecoming dress today, and in the process found an awesome one myself - Collapse )

However, since I don't have a date yet (and don't really care whether I go or not), I didn't buy it. But now... I might have someone to go with. So do you think if I called Nordstrom tomorrow and asked them to put it on hold, they'd do it? The thing is, it was on clearance and I don't know how to describe it other than "that one silvery, beaded flapper-ish dress," lol. So I'm not sure if it's feasible.

It's not really that big of a deal - I won't cry over it - but it would be a nice dress to have.
