(I looked up athlete's foot, and they're not peeling like that...just sort of peeling like my skin is dry. Except, they don't seem dry..)
Also, how do I tell my mother that I burned my carpet under my bed?
It happened when I was about 13 and I was so embarrassed/scared to tell my parents that I moved my bed over it. They're getting new windows put in soon and my bed is right under the windows. :[

Any healthcare stories you want to share with the class?
Any other thoughts?
Cos I mean, holy shit, dude. Here (Australia), I can go to a psychologist and it either costs me $10 or it's free, depending on which system I use to claim back on. Doctors, dental etc, the bulk of the cost is reimbursed. I don't think we have the most whizz-bang system, but it's pretty good.

I wish I could still be in Chicago. The Cubs just clinched the NL Central and I'm here in freakin' Minnesota instead of at the bars getting drunk like half of Chicago (I was debating on doing that anyway but it wouldn't be half as fun).
i went through a phase in my early teen years where i shopped at hot topic a lot. i ended up owning big, black, buckle-y boots and had no use for them when i decided i was no longer sad and angry. i never gave them up and i've just recently found them, and i want to put them to good use.
they look similar to:
i'd like to wear them this halloween, but i'm not sure what i could be. my nerdy boyfriend, who's going to be wolverine, wants me to be x-23. i was hoping for something not so.. comic book-related. so, what boot-wearing costume should i have for halloween?

Now my question is this: could it be anything else aside from the MS? Lack of some nutrients/healthy nonsense? This is getting ridiculous and one day I am going to black-out in a less-than-ideal situation. Help, please.
Oh. And my neurologist once told me that I need to lay down, no matter where I am or the situation, when I feel the signs that it might happen (which I felt last night, ignored, and blacked-out). Then again, I could be walking in the middle of the street and laying down would be impossible.

I learned from my dentist that rinsing with mouth wash is supposed to be the first step to loosen food particles but I don't know where to go from there. I Googled but I only found techniques for flossing and brushing. I found a dental community but it was last updated a week ago, so I turn to you.
Also, do any of you use toothpaste that is free of sodium lauryl sulfate? If so, what do you use and where did you get it?
I Googled that too but it seems like you have to buy the toothpaste online... or I'm not looking hard enough.

My dad called me earlier and is asking me all kinds of computer questions that I don't know how to answer. A new user suddenly turned up on his laptop at startup, with a password he can't figure out, and they have all the admin power for the computer so he can't delete it. He also can't burn CDs anymore for some reason, so he can't back up any of his files. I suggested sending it to the manufacturer or going somewhere to get it fixed because I have no idea what to do. Do you have any suggestions on what he should do?

My boyfriend and I have been dealing with ants in our kitchen, and I've noticed that they really fucking hate cinnamon. So I have it sprinkled all over the counter tops, and I've mixed some of it with water to make a paste so I can get it on vertical surfaces. But we're renting this apartment, and I don't want to have to take a bunch of money out of our security deposit so my landlady can get a bunch of brown cinnamon stains out of her counters.
I managed to completely surround an ant in cinnamon, and the guy was freaking the fuck out. He probably still is. It's really funny to watch. Am I a terrible person?
Should I go get a turkey sandwich over at Safeway before going to work?

Do you know of anything going on in Massachusetts of Rhode Island on Halloween that is 18+?
If not, what should I do for fun on campus for Halloween?
There is a party at our neighbor's house this evening but I don't know if I wanna go-I know my parents will be going but I am so quiet and tend to feel sort of uncomfortable at most social gatherings where I have nobody to talk to-I feel like my parents would be talking to them so then I wouldn't really have anybody to talk to-On the other hand, it's food and it's better than spending my own money or sitting around I suppose and if I got THAT bored I live like two houses over so I could just leave quietly. So, should I go to the party even though there's a chance of my feeling somewhat uncomfortable and see what happens-if anything there is a free meal or should I just forgo it?
Will you tell me about the first day of your first job?
I have a whole bunch of CD and DVD-ROMs storing archived data, each disk has a list of directories (like Jan02, Feb02, Mar03, etc). I'm looking to move the archives onto external discs. I'm using the same CD/DVD burner to read the discs as I did to burn them. I can get most of the data off the CDs or DVDs, but for some reason, I am unable to copy the last directory of files on each and every disc. This just seems too much for coincidence. The disks have been stored in protective sleeves and show no signs of scratches or anything.
I really would like to get all the data off. It just seems odd that it does the same thing on each disc, regardless of format (CD or DVD).
Can anyone here offer up any useful info or links?
1b. Do you usually order the same thing?
2. How would you describe the last year of your life in one word?
How would you feel about Dubya being played by Batman?
I've never taken sick leave from work in my life, I've always been pretty healthy. Now, I have some rather nasty infected cuts in my hands, oozing puss and swollen, you can guess the details. The doctor prescribed me a ten day antibiotic cure. It would be all right for me to work, but my work is very physical and my hands get dirty - I have to, among other things, take 60 soil samples a day and in general roam around forests even when it rains. I'd need to keep my hands clean so the infection would heal, but I feel like an idiot to take sick leave for something so minor like this :S It's not like my leg is broken or something. I declined the sick leave and thought I can wear gloves, but really, no matter what type of gloves I wear my hands still get dirty because I need to be able to write all the time and it won't do with thick rubber gloves. Thin rubber gloves I'll just tear right away with my measuring equipment.
But, really, I just want my hands to heal, they hurt.. Should I just suck it up and ask for the sick leave on Monday? Will my boss think I'm a lazy idiot? I really don't know what people do in these situations - I'm usually never sick.
edit: This is also my last week at work! Then I'll just return the equipment.. it would be four days of about 9-hour days if I don't take the sick leave. If I do it's just returning the equipment after the leave and that's it.
I'm in there a lot and the bare walls are boring me. My aunt used to have pics of half naked men all over hers, should I do the same?

I think that if your cute little girl with big eyes starts drawing pictures of demons, you should not go to a haunted town seeking the truth. but what exactly would you do? take away the sketchbooks for a while, maybe? are there any ways to tell when your kid has gone evil?
How (other than just "being there for them") did you show your support?
on the one hand i feel like it'd be my private, personal business, but on the other i'd think i might feel very shocked and left out if someone that important to me kept something that big from me, like they thought they couldn't trust and confide in me like i thought they did/should.
BONUS QUESTION: how would you even bring that up?
eta: i'm not in a relationship or anything so this isn't really relevant. it's just something i've wondered about for a long time.

What would you like to eat right now?
My roomie reorganized the kitchen putting things in nice airtight containers. Only problem is she didn't label them.
So now I have flower, cornstarch, baking powder and perhaps baking soda. . .
The recipe I am working on calls for the cornstarch and I have no idea how to tell it from the others. (It's a kind of do it yourself Hamburger Helper)
Anyone know how to identify cornstarch without it being labeled?
Do you have a good one? WHat kind is it?
Also, I don't know if this is normal, but the part on my laptop charger that you plug either the duckhead or the extension cord (I have a Mac) into gets REALLY REALLY REALLY hot. Like so hot that it hurts to touch. Is this a problem?! I'm kind of a baby about hot stuff, but this is SERIOUSLY hot. Can I get a cooling thing for that baby too?

For me, as a child, my brothers always called me out when I showed off so I've noticed that I try so hard to not do that to this day...I don't consciously try hard to not do it, but that's one of the things I avoid the most automatically. Also, in junior high, I was severely shunned by my group of friends for gossiping or talking shit about other people. That is something I definitely avoid today, and I'm glad to have learned that lesson.
