if you get cold sores, do you feel obligated to tell new partners that you get them? do you feel bad if you don't tell them? do you actually tell, or not?
i never tell anyone because i don't think it's a huge deal because something like 85% of american adults get them anyways, but a few comments in there are making me feel like a bad person for never letting people know.

For those who are single, wanna make out? *wink wink* Okay but seriously though, for the single crowd... will you tell me something about the person you are currently crushing on?
Here's the question.
Does anyone know of an Asian instant drink mix that could be referred to as "nut tea"? When it got cold out, my boss’ wife would make it for us, and that is what she called it. It was wonderful and I'm dying to have it again. It is a powder, in a rectangular tin. It reminds me of those International Coffee tins, but bigger. I think that it was Korean because she received it in care packages from her sister in Korea but since her English, while good, was limited and my Korean was abysmal I can't really be sure.
Any help would be appreciated.
What is wrong with me?
What is confusing you today?
Me, I love finding a song (or combination of songs) that perfectly fits the length of a commute.
I entered into a friendly contest with my bffs to see who could finish a jawbreaker first.
I swear to God, eating that thing has cut up my tongue so bad it bleeds.
And now, I've developed some sort of speech impediment because of it. I have to work today, so when customers come into the store, they stare at me like I'm slow. I'm like, "Hewwo. Hoooow are jew today? If you hath any cebstuns, fweathe let me dough."

Who would win the presidential election in this set up:
A female candidate or an openly gay male?

What is the last strange thing you found in your pockets?
Kibble, whole food, or a combination? Why?

How annoying is it when someone calls you, "hun"?
I just called JCPenny to cancel my picture appointment on Saturday. The lady asked, "can you hold" and I said, "no, I just need to cancel my appointment" and she goes, "ok, can you hang on, hun?" and put me on hold.
I SAID NO I CAN'T BE ON HOLD!! Gah. And, she called me, "hun", so I hung up. *shakes fist*
I was on a cell phone, y'all. When I booked the damn appointment I was put on hold for 13 minutes!! I'm sorry, but with their HOLD record I wasn't going to sit there for another 13, 15, 20 minutes just to cancel the damn appointment.
I just got hired by The Pita Pit & I start tomorrow 9pm until 3am. McAlister's Deli wasn't giving enough hours.
I need to erase all of my information and bring the computer to the state in which I bought it. Do I need to to a whole destructive systems recovery? or would that erase everything on the hardrive including the OS?

2. Does your local big theme park open nights in the run up to Halloween?
Have you ever been?
How awesome was it?
2. What was the last concert you went to?
3. What's the next one you're going to?
I've been to 4 concerts with my dad: Roxy Music, The Who, King Crimson, and Jethro Tull. We're going to see the Dandy Warhols on Saturday, and people always think it's strange that I take my dad to concerts. But he's lots of fun at concerts, and it's always been our bonding thing.
I did see Weezer when I was 15 with my friend at the time and both of her parents, and that was super awkward.
2)Do you have one or know someone who does? If so, what do the payments consist of(principle + interest, interest only, less than interest)?
I was on BC that made me really depressed, I told my doctor, we switched pills and now I'm 100 times better. She wants me to see a psychologist and refuses to drop it.

I have been talking with a girl that I met on myspace.com and we have known each other for over a year,
and we have established that we would enjoy having sex with each other (in an abstract conversation of coarse), and last night she said that she would happily date me if I ever asked her (again in an abstract conversation)
What do you think about the situation TQC?
What do you think I should do?
Do you have any predictions for the future of our relationship?
So the short of it is:
A semi-friend of mine came into my newspaper's office today, and made a really inappropriate comment about my Letter From The Editor picture. Something along the lines of: "JO! What IS this?! Boobs hanging out, curves like crazy....how did you get to be so hot?!"
I would like to inform him that if he ever, EVER makes another comment like this again, I'll report him for sexual harassment. There were witnesses to this comment today, and in fact, my best friend almost punched the guy. I would also like to tell him how inappropriate that comment was, ESPECIALLY since he knows I'm not single.
Now, question: Would it be chickenshit of me to message him on Facebook and explain how inappropriate that was? He communicates best through Facebook, and I figure if I "speak his language" (so to say), he might get a clue. I mean, I know he's not going to change a damn bit, and this will happen again, but he needs to know he crossed a line.
Another question: Should my boyfriend also say something to this guy? I think he should. He got so defensive of his "territory" when I moved in with my best guy friend, and that kid is totally harmless. This guy is a bit unstable, ridiculously desperate, and needs to be put in his place.
Halp guise, I feel totally violated by that comment. :/
EDIT: A few things to clarify, since everyone's gotten their panties in a twist about me overreacting--
1) The comment in and of itself does not bother me. It's the person who said it, and the way he said it that is the issue here. The guy is not a co-worker, and I have no boss (I'm the top person in the organization!). He's just a former staff member (who graduated before I was ever in college).
2) My boyfriend saying something would not replace me saying something. I fully intend on speaking to this creep about it, but I was curious as to whether the BF should say something as well.
3) I don't mean "territory" in the "OMG MY BOYFRIEND CONTROLS MY EVERY M
(I'd also have to pay water, electric, internet, cell phone... wouldn't need cable. Or a home home. And of course I'd need groceries, and can eat relatively cheap if I have to. MIGHT have a car, but would like to be somewhere that I could get a bike and/or use public transportation to get around). And I'm thinking "if I lived alone." Don't want to have to have roommates again. *shudders*
It was like rice-krispies on the bottom (sort of) and chocolate on the top.
2) What are some good songs to add to a sex mixtape CD thingy? Besides "Sex Bomb" by Tom Jones because that's already on there. =P
3) When you post a question on here do you tend to accidentally post it to your journal instead?
I keep doing that every single time! Ahh!
If you use Pandora, what stations have you created for yourself?
Any complaints about the top ten?
which upcoming holiday is your favourite, why? how do you celebrate it?
what's your favourite comedy show?
she didn't mean it like "I'm so great" blah blah blah. i don't really know how to describe it. it was actually after a long tangent about how much she hates herself 99% of the time.
but my question is:
do you sometimes feel like you're maybe a bit more special than the people around you?
2. Is there any way to prevent gas in cats? My kitten likes to fart on me.
What was the most expensive but most useless thing you've ever bought?
What have you brought along for show and tell today?
She's difficult to talk to though and will take everything I say the wrong way. I know that explaining this to her is going to end in her sulking and crying like a child. Despite the fact I'm doing it partly for her best interests & moving away to a better area.
Note that its not that I want her to move out of my house, I want to move somewhere else. Whether she stays here or moves somewhere else doesn't matter. Also, I'm not bailing on looking after her, she doesn't need as much help as she thinks and will do better for herself on her own.
Im going to nocturnal tommorrow but im in denver right now and im scared about getting it caught wen i try to get on the plane. so im thinking about faxing it to a freind tonight. can anyne tell me if this will work?
Beer BEFORE liquor, you've never been sicker. Liquor BEFORE beer, you're in the clear.
Or is it?
Beer AFTER liquor, you've never been sicker. Liquor AFTER beer, you're in the clear.
And why is that anyway?
I'm highly doubting it, but maybe in the UK or Ireland?
Anyone know for sure?
I thought it was a Chinese character at first, but it looked too round. So I enlarged it, and it turns out it was a little crown.
So I thought, "AWESOME! I wonder how I make it?" So I Googled it, but came up with 0 results. I know it's not an image because Word treated it as a character, and you can't put images or any HTML in the names of subjects on Gaia.
So what on earth is this character, why did it show up, and how can I get it for myself?
What about getting so small of a raise that it's insulting?
I just found out that when the company I'm working for (it's a temp to hire position) hires me in a couple weeks, I'm getting a 10% raise!! not to mention an awesome benefits package. Oh, and a yearly bonus ranging from 4-9%. How awesome is that?
What should I do to celebrate?
Do you have any cool ideas of what we could do?
We have this huuuuuge field right by a lake that would be PERFECT for a big like outdoor event like a concert/picnic thing, so thats the only thing I could come up with.
We're in Florida, and we're already planning trips to football games, and to Halloween Horror Nights.
Do you know anyone like this?
I just can't imagine why anyone would choose to be oblivious to the world around them.
or am I just being too judgemental? I'm not sure if I'm doing a very good job at describing her; she just seems very disinterested in anything outside of shopping and boys.
What is your favourite charity?
what was the last thing you had in your mouth?
Now, I am shaky and clammy and I feel dizzy. This happens sometimes even when I don't eat parts of bouillon cubes. Pretty much my entire extended family has diabeetus.
Do I have AIDS?
Do you like hats?
Would that even work, you think?
What major could I choose that is similar? Health Sciences, biohemistry, biology, chemistry, etc?
I have a couple pairs like these that are so cute and so comfortable but they feel so thin and vulnerable that I wonder if it would look inappropriate to wear them out at all.
People have come to my work wearing pajamas and even hoochie shorts before so there is no dress code, I just wonder if it looks inappropriate to wear tight pants on any level? Thoughts? Do you ever see people wearing yoga pants just out and about?
Would you feel awkward if a coworker was wearing tight yoga pants?
What are you having for dinner? :P
What stereotypes do you think are associated with being vegetarian? For example, if you had just found out that I was a vegetarian, what would you immediately assume about me? Also, what if you found out I love animals, and I'm all for animal rights?
(By the way, you aren't doing my project for me by answering this - don't worry. I'm just trying to decide whether or not it's a good example to use).
why is almost all sf military themed?
conjecture: obi wan was a pussy for not killing anakin. y/n?
which sf character do you find the hawtest?
With #1 you had sex once. You dated, had sex and broke up.
With #2 it's a one night stand. Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am
With #3 you've had sex 390423 times because you're in a long-term relationship with them and they're the only one you've had meaningful sex with.
So, ummm... do you say you've been with 3 sexual partners or 1? (NOT TECHNICALLY) Like, if someone was to ask you.
I think I'd say something like, "I've been in 1 serious relationship"
I mean, if a friend asked you something like, "how many people have you slept with?"
Not a potential sex partner.
Note: I have a pretty good idea of who I'm picking, and let me tell you, TQC, John McCain's VP pick will pale in comparison to mine.
Even though you've spoken/chatted with most of them on several occasions and they seem nice enough, would you be at all uneasy? Would you change the locks or find a new spot for the key, just assume they are/were all as honest as they seemed and not do anything?

4. Paper or plastic?
If the latter, what is the longest you've ever drawn out one fight?
If you're mad at your SO, do you yell and scream, throw things, ignore him/her until you receive an apology, talk it out like rational adults or what?
Leonardo DiCaprio is a much better looking guy now that he's older and has a beard.
I just want to get her something special, greatly romantic, and out of the ordinary. Specifically something that will really surprise her and mean something. It's important.
So the question is what do you consider to be a crossover fanfic?
