Have you heard of cold intolerance? Have you ever known someone who suffered from it?

Today was about 55°F, and I wore three hoodies (I know) and a shirt. I kept shaking, it looked like my hands were shriveling up, and my nose was red. I should probably see my doctor about this...

(And don't be lame and say you don't have one. There must be at least ONE color that is favorable to you!)
How did your favorite color come to be your favorite color?
What effect has this color had on your life (like, do you buy certain things in that color, are you drawn to people who wear that color, etc)?

She's at a different college, and I don't even believe that people can be "stolen" in relationships since it takes two. No lectures, plz.

what is a silly or stupid thing you thought of when drunk or high?

Once while stoned, I decided toilets were inherently sexist. I mean, men just stand over the toilet, insert their fluids and walks away. They flushes away any concerns and responsibilities. Women, however, sit over this dark, deep undefended hole and have their precious bodily fluids taken from them without the ability to influence the event.

Obnoxious backstory: My exbf* is in a mental ward and has been for two weeks. Some of his friends (who helped him land himself in there) were really annoying and rude to me and I told them I didn't want to speak to them. They told him I've been bitchy and "uncooperative"!

*we are broken up but were trying to fix things. I have spent two weeks trying to make sure he's safe, keeping his asshole friends updated, and talking to his mom.

Long story short: how fucked up is it to start drama with someone who is already fucked up enough to be in a mental ward for two weeks?

so, i'm pretty drunk and naturally i'm feeling pretty fucking sentimental. anyway, i'm listening to this song by Jaguar Love called "His Organ Sounds Like ..."

and there are lines throughout the song that proceed(i think that's the word) the line "but when i hear the music..."

and they are

-all the world is holy and good
-all the animals in my heart roar
-all the wilderness in my heart grows

and it got me thinking

what are some songs/albums/bands that you listen to that make you feel like that(if any)?

Belle & Sebastian have always done that for me.

No. I have seven fingers
I have 10 fingers like everybody else. Clearly you want someone who plays with fireworks

I live in an apartment complex. Tonight (at 4 am) cops showed up for the FOURTH time to talk to our downstairs neighbor, who we call Special Ed. I've called the office after every visit from the police---the lights/talking/yelling wake us up and it's getting to the point where we don't feel safe. This guy and his son seem to always be drunk, they can't keep their business inside their apartment and I'm just tired of it. Short of calling the office again (tomorrow at a decent time) what can I do? I don't feel safe talking to this person on my own...I don't really want him to know that it's me complaining as I feel he could potentialy hurt me or my property. This guy has only lived here for about 6 months, and the cops have been here 4 times in as many months... I find that scary.

any other neighbor horror stories?

I just took a nap and had a dream that I was on a cruise ship and I was on a mission to give like a shit load of money to this very dangerous guy so I was sitting at a bar waiting for him to come and he did, I had a huge machine gun under my coat (I know right?) and when I gave him the case I told him to leave but he wanted me to go somewhere private with him to count the cash so I started running and I hid in a restaurants fridge but he found me so I went with him and he told me to lose the gun but I said no, and as we were walking to this *safe place* we happened to walk through a private banquet and I noticed a HUGE bowl of breaded meatballs, *mind you I hate meatballs* and I was all, OH MY GOD I NEED A MEATBALL and he said he did too so we sat at some empty seats and pretended to know the people so we could eat meatballs and I was trying to hide my machine gun the whole time.

Say you live in a place where you are cold all the time and feel the need to buy a hooded sweatshirt, but around where you live hoodies are pretty expensive (at least $50 for an off-brand), would you pay $100 for a name-brand hoodie that you would probably wear every single day?

Did you guys have a diary or journal that was ~*~*super-seekrit*~*~*~ as a kid? Where'd you put it to keep it from prying eyes, or did you hide it at all? What did you write about?

(I totally had a Lisa Frank journal with a lock that I put under my mattress like they do in all of the books. But the lock snapped so I just kept it further under the mattress. I chronicled the minute details of every single aspect of my day from 1st grade until 9th grade when I got my LJ - down to exactly what I wore.)

I cannot stop cracking up because my BF keeps asking me: "has your period come down?" in Spanish. It reminds me of the "get off the shed" skit on SNL. Um, backstory to the question, it's late and we are both hoping like hell that I'm not pregnant. D: D: D:

So I'm at home and sick...I might be posting a lot. Deal.

Do you have any ritual habits for bedtime or sleeping? 

I can not get into bed unless the bed is made first. I hate making my bed in the morning though, so come bedtime it's a mess. Right before bed I fix the sheet, pillowcases and then make the bed before getting in. Every single night. In any bed.

I always have to be wrapped up in my blanket like a cocoon too. My boyfriend and I use separate blankies even when we live together. First I make my bed, then get in my spot. I bring the covers over me and roll as far as I can to one side and fold it up under me and then repeat for the other side so it's very tight. I flip my feet up and the swish the bottom open part of the blanket underneath my feet and legs. 

If it's too hot for this (I usually start with this every night even if I know it'll get too hot) I take a corner of the covers and tuck it under my tummy (I usually sleep on my stomach) and drape the rest over the small of my back and onto the floor.

My boyfriend will like drink a liter of water right before bed every night. He's up peeing all night but otherwise he gets really dried up by morning. I'm used to being woken up by him at least 2-3 times a night.

Ok, so I have become like, MASSIVELY addicted to playing those Nancy Drew mystery games online. I found a whole bunch of sites that have them, let you sign up for a free trial, and you get to play them. Then I usually cancel before I get billed (me being poor and cheap and whatnot). If the site has more than one game, I usually use one of my other credit cards (I have 3 total)... Rinse, lather, repeat.

So I ran out of sites, I think :-(

Does anyone know any sites that have those games that offer a free trial or a free game? I've used: BigFishGames, RealArcade, IWin, Shockwave, and a few more I can't remember. Haven't paid yet, but I played about 6 or 7 games. I only have another 8 to go! LoL. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Okay, so i start a new job on tuesday. The pay and hours are great and I am looking forward to being able to finally buy my amazing husband a fabulous birthday gift: An Ipod Touch.

The problem is that his birthday is just about one month away. I have no idea when I will get my paychecks, etc. I can definitely afford to get him the Touch thanks to my new job, but the timing makes me VERY nervous. He is also the one who mostly deals with our finances/bills and I am worried I wont be able to make this big of a purchase and keep it a secret from him.

When I bought my wedding dress from Nordstroms I got a Nordstroms card so I could put the dress on the card and then pay it off. I was thinking of going to somewhere that sells the IPOD Touch (like Best Buy, etc) and doing the same thing (applying for the card, putting the Touch on it, and then easily paying it off.) This way I could keep it a secret from him AND not have to worry about the timing of my paychecks. I wouldnt use the credit card ever again, just for THIS purchase.

Is this a good idea, TQC?
Can you think of a better way for me to go about doing this?

Not sure if this has been posted before, wouldn't be suprised if it has, with all the election buzz going on. But I was curious, do you know anyone that's a democrat because it's what's "cool"? Because if you're a republican you're closed minded, conservative and old fashioned? Or something like that.

I have a friend who is totally democratic for the scene of it. One of those people who chooses the title and then will agree with it no matter what. She is seriously not even that informed about stuff, or if she is she doesn't talk about the right things when she goes on her pro-democratic rants. She does the whole anti-republican thing and has an Obama sign in her window at college. I'm sure if she was informed she'd be democratic anyway. I just wish she would...be informed and not rant mindlessly about things that don't really make her look educated.

I'm not biased, I'm not republican or democratic, I understand why people would go either way, there's nothing wrong with being one or the other. You might call me an independant, but really, I'm just not political.

Along those lines, should I vote? If so, why? Anyone else here old enough to vote and not going to? Why?

If you're an Obama supporter (even as the lesser of evils) and you wanted to convince a friend or family member that voting for McCain would be a Bad Idea™, what points would you make?

I come from a very conservative middle-class family, and I think a lot of them are voting for McCain. I want to write them a mass email explaining why they shouldn't. The tricky part is being tactful. I want to change their minds without exactly telling them I think they're a bunch of ignorant morons.

Jonathan Haidt had some interesting stuff to say about morality and why it leads people to vastly different (and at times seemingly stupid) political positions. I'm going to use some arguments from that as a starting point. I'm also going to include a side-by-side comparison of Obama and McCain's tax plans showing how Obama's is better for the middle class, and a chart showing how Reagan-era "fiscal conservatives" have consistently jacked up the national debt while "tax and spend liberals" have consistently reduced it. Finally, I'm going to debunk the stupid lies that Obama is a Muslim who pals around with terrorists. Because they're exactly the kind of idiots who would latch onto crap like that and preach it as truth.

Anything else you think I should add?

Edit: To those who say I shouldn't do this, why? (Note: I flat-out reject avoiding drama as a valid reason.)

And to those who say I should be more tolerant: there are two subtle distinctions I'd like you to think about. First of all, tolerance means respecting other people's right to believe what they want, NOT respecting the beliefs themselves or abstaining from trying to change them. Second, disagreements stem from two things: values and facts. A mature person respects that others often have different value systems. But there is no reason to respect someone who insists on believing facts that are false. In fact, I'd say that respecting other people's wrong factual beliefs is a sign of mental weakness.

so i'm pretty sure that what i originally thought was a rare severe acne breakout is actually a series of cold sores. so, my questions:

1. which is worse--pimples or cold sores?
2. have you ever had a cold sore? how about 11?
3. what do i doooooooo? (ok, that one is hypothetical mostly.)
4. can you tell me an uplifting story about people with repulsive cold sores who went on to live normal, happy lives?

If you were to start a band, what would you name it? And if you're already in a band, what is it called?

Forgot to add my answer: I've had many potential band names go through my head (but alas, no talent), but I currently like "Cunt Rockets".

1.)  If you were to move to a new place (or if you have), what would be on your list of essential things to get or do?

I'm moving to NYC this coming weekend and I just found out yesterday! It will just be me and the boyfriend.

2.) Also, do you have an Amazon/anything wishlist?

When I was younger I had gum surgery, and they took out that thing that connects the inside of my top lip to my gums. I kind of forget that other people have one.

Do you have anything missing that most people have?

What not traditionally Christmas movie do you associate with Christmas?

For me, it's Little Women with Winonna Ryder and Christian Bale. I guess it's because there are a few Christmas scenes and it's all warm and happy and full of family.

Do you ?s

Do you ever drink alone?

Do you consider yourself to be drinking alone if you are interacting with people online (chatrooms, messageboards, videogames, livejournal comms, etc)?

Do you eat pasta with a spoon?

If you met some dude on the intarwebs (we're talking Craigslist, here) and had been emailing and more recently, texting for a while, and then he hits you with the inevitable, "Ask me anything you want, I dare you," what do you do?

FYI, I had the same kind of texting relationship (I like texting, apparently) with a co-worker a year ago, and he asked the same kind of questions, and it all culminated with me getting groped in a movie theatre, so I want to be a little more cautious here.

Or at least do you know what language it is so I can look it up online?

"Jemand, um zu lieben und zu halten und alle meine Mängel dazu zu erzählen"

Thanks in advance.

I'm trying to figure out how to word this: "She's gone to a better place _____ _____ _____ she left."

What goes in the blank?
"a better place than that which she left"? I have no idea how to make it flow smoothly.
ETA: Fixed! Less redundancy. Next question:

Anyway, what's the most hypocritical thing you've heard someone say or do?

TQC, I need your help!

I need to find a picture of people playing video games for the last slide of my speech on the history of video games and the ways they have influenced our culture. The picture needs to have girls and boys in it, and they need to be looking like they're having a lot of fun. Could you help me find a good one?

If I can't find something like that then I need a picture that encompasses the video game playing experience. What do you think that picture would look like? I'm going to be putting it in powerpoint and it will be up on a projector so it needs to have a fairly good resolution, something that is easy to see up on the screen.

I have my entire speech done, but I just need this one picture to finish off the slideshow!

If you come across anything please let me know!

ETA: Thanks guys, I finished it! I ended up putting one picture each of kids, teenagers, and adults playing video games all on the same slide. I appreciate the help!

Please tell me I'm being ridiculous.

If your SO moved somewhere to be with you, and then you moved away (your SO knew when/where you were moving), would you be bothered if he/she mentioned to a friend that moving to that first location was a "mistake"?

I feel pretty ridiculous about this, but I'm kind of hurt because I though we had an awesome summer :(

Why does my ex call me at the most random times, like 1 am on a Wednesday night and 6 am on a Sunday morning, to apologize for the last time he randomly called me at a terrible hour?

It's irritating as hell.

So how exactly does it work when you buy a car from a dealership?

I've never done it and my boyfriend didn't handle the details when he bought his car.

Will my down payment have to be at least as much as tax & title?
If I do payments, will the dealership take care of it, or do I need to talk to a bank separately?

carmax.com is telling me to enter my apr to figure out my monthly payments but I have no clue how to figure it out...

Something we discussed in my Social Psych class

We discussed this article: http://www.courier-journal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20051009/NEWS01/510090392
Did you hear about this when it was happening? I didn't, and it bothers me.

How come I couldn't escape hearing about Terri Schiavo every day, and yet this wasn't even a blip on my radar? Wouldn't you be much more concerned about a cop-impersonating manipulative telephone pervert than some family gone drama-llama?

When was your last blonde moment?

I was helping paint a friend's house, and a smoke alarm was casting a small shadow on the wall. Maybe it was the fumes, maybe it was just me, but I tried to paint over the shadow for like 5 minutes. I was like, "OMG THE GRAY JUST KEEPS EATING UP THE WHITE PAINT" Someone had to point it out to me. :(

So my window is busted, and the Boston air is getting chilly.  It doesn't close all the way, leaving about a quarter of an inch between the window and the frame.  Since I can't afford to get it fixed (I think it's going to require a full replacement of the window, since there's other things wrong with it too) what material would you suggest I put between the window and the sill to try to insulate it?

Srs and nonsrs answers will be graciously accepted :)
