I'm kinda thinking I could be preggers but only because I've been feeling nauseous for about a week and a half, especially when I lean over and my waistband presses into me. When I take a deep breath it feels like there's something... in there. Alien or bb whatchu think? My period comes whenever it feels like it so I'm wondering if anyone felt they were pregnant for other reasons.
what is the most awkward thing that's happened to you while you were having sex?

Which classic killer signs do you exhibit?
I checked around 5 gas stations and 3 of them said they had sold out before noon. :(
mine: I tend to lean towards the ones that don't have frosty or Santa in them because none of them really seem like they'd sound amazing when performed by a choir.
o come all ye faithful
oh holy night

god rest ye merry gentlemen
edit: has anyone ever seen either Garfield's Christmas where John drags him to the family farm and he gets into all sorts of shenanigans there?
What about The Muppets Family Christmas where Fozzie drags everyone to his mom's farms and they get into all sorts of shenanigans as well?
Pee-Wee's Christmas special where Little Richard and Charro take part in all of Pee-Wee's crazy shenanigans?
Those three are a holiday must for my brother and I. Oh, nostalgia...
Have you ever had a dream where you were doing something you're pretty sure you'd never actually do in real life? If so, what is it were you doing?
Let me first say, I smoke cigarettes and have since I was 16. I met my boyfriend when I was 17 years old and he was 18 (I'm now 20, he's 21). He graduated with a 4.0 GPA and was a Cross-Country athlete. About 6 months to a year into our relationship, he started smoking pot. He dropped out of community college but continued to work at Starbucks. We've been in COUNTLESS arguments about his pot smoking and how I feel it makes him a complete moron and he's lost so much ambition, but he doesn't seem to care. All he tells me is that I smoke cigarettes so I should stop arguing about it. There have been countless times where he's told me he was so stoned, he shouldn't have drove but did anyways and almost got into a wreck. I'm not only worried about his wellbeing, but mine aswell. He's told me so many times that he was done smoking and he was going to start running again, but he would start right back up because he "likes the high". We now live in San Diego, and before we left, he bought 1/4 ounce of weed, when I thought that this move would distance himself from the people that got him into smoking and help motivate him to stop. I just found out he's not happy down here and wants to move back up and wants to convince me to move into an apartment with him and his friend that got him smoking pot, which I will not do at all.
The reason I am so against marijuana is because I see what it did to me and my family. I almost dropped out of school in the 10th grade because of it, I sold it and put myself and my family in danger.
What I'm basically asking for is some advice on what to do and how to approach it. There's only so much of this I can take. If he ends up moving in with his friend and wants me to, I will seriously consider ending the relationship because there will obviously be no progress, and I will be put in an even MORE uncomfortable position because I absolutley cannot stand his friend. Would I be in the wrong to do that? What do I do?!
Is it a little silly to wait to have sex till marriage, after having sex already in the past?
So, I have an essay which is ever-so-slightly overdue. Every time I sit down to write it, I find myself absolutely seething with rage. I hate the author; I hate the topic; I have nothing to say, and it makes me so incredibly angry. I mean, I swear at the computer, I will actually tear my hair out, I will cry. I am just so damn angry with it. The file itself is named "f**king f**kface essay". And I'm not a swearing person.
What do I do?? All I've come up with so far is "F***K I HATE THIS".
I'm really not used to a) being this angry or b) having this much trouble writing. Seriously, it's like pulling teeth, and I'm getting nowhere except exceedingly angry.
What do I do? This essay is all that stands between me and completing this paper.
1) Thomas Kuhn argues that scientific knowledge does not grow in a clearly cumulative manner over time as we may be inclined to believe. What is his explanation of the growth of scientific knowledge? How does that position relate to, if it does at all, Sandra Harding's feminist critique of science?
2) What is substance dualism, and how does it occur in the Cartesian theory of mind? Assuming that you will either agree or disagree with Descartes on this matter, can you define and argue your own position regarding the relationship between mind and body?
3) According to Karl Popper, we live in this world by "trial and error," meaning that we assume and live our life by conjectures until they are successfully refuted. If Popper was right, then imagine this situation: a person, P, believes that little people should be killed and eliminated from the world. Not only does he believe that he is right, but he also believes that he should start such elimination. Should he be allowed to carry out his belief so long as no one refutes his belief? And what if he rejects such refutations to be unconvincing, on the basis that they are too only conjectures, and therefore not any better than his own?
similarly, do YOU believe that little people should be killed and eliminated from the world?
and also, is it too early for a christmas icon?
I just need to get out and do something and a walk is the only thing I can think of.
I just noticed I do that.
2. When you drink a cold beverage in a glass do you like to have ice in it or not?
I like lots and lots of ice.
3. What do you have a problem with?
My tooth, it's sore.
EDIT!!! You guys won't believe what just happened, LOL! I made chili for dinner tonight, Vin, my boyfriend was putting some on his plate and hit his hand on the salsa jar and said OW! I was like, *you have no idea how hilarious it is that you JUST said that!!!!!!!!!!*
Yesterday I came into his office asking some math questions--they were more proof-oriented. Anyway, he wasn't able to answer them, really. He just went around in circles, and he even said, "I know my explanation's not that good." But I honestly didn't mind. It wasn't required to know this stuff and I was curious. I feel like he was really self-conscious about not knowing the answers, and that he felt bad about himself. At the end, he even apologized for not helping me, but I told him he did.
Anyway, in the past I've always been told that since I have such excessive questions that I should research them first and not burden people with them. In the middle of one of my questions, I told him, "I really should have researched it first, huh?" And he replied, "Ok, ok. I can read between the margins." He probably thought I was saying that he was incompetent. I told him, "Oh, it's just that I feel like I always bother people with questions and I should just research it."
I could tell that he felt really bad, though, but maybe I'm just too sensitive. What do you think? Should I apologize to him today and tell him what I really meant by that comment? That I've been told that I should research them before, and I didn't mean anything by that? I just feel bad when I feel like I hurt people's feelings.
Now, I'm wondering... are those signs seriously for the employees to remind them (because washing your hands after using the bathroom, let alone a public bathroom, should be common practice right?) or are they for the patrons to have peace of mind that the person handling their food has washed their hands after those hands have handled their naughty bits.
I'm really hoping it's the latter, but what's your opinion?
If you went to the bathroom at a restaurant and didn't see that sign, would you notice and think twice about that establishment's sanitation standards? Or would you just be too hungry to care?
So what was this, am I forgetting something vital about phone numbers or was this myself calling from the future or some scary shit like that?
ETA I called back and I got "this number is not in use". :( I feel like I'm in Lost Highway.
Honestly, it's pretty rarely...They're so uncomfortable after you wash them
My professor is an *interesting* guy to say the least and mentioned that:

**Edited scenario 2 for clarity**
Scenario 1: You're a pretty strict vegan and someone thinks it's funny to put beef broth (but not enough to strongly impact the flavor) into your mushroom soup. You don't realize it when you're eating, but you find out later that they did this to you. How upset would you be? What would you do about it (confront the person, just stop talking to them, you wouldn't be affected...etc)?
Scenario 2: You aren't the vegan, but you know the vegan and you heard this person making jokes about it at work. At this point, the vegan has no idea that beef broth was put in the soup. The non-vegan has a history of being rude, condescending, and cruel to people so you don't really care about protecting her reputation. Would you tell the vegan what happened or would you consider it none of your business?

TQC, THIS IS BULLSHIT, RIGHT?
- until just three days ago he lived in a city an hour and a half away, and if he came into the city he would make time to see me if I asked him if he wanted to get together even though he was only here for a short while
- we always see each other one-on-one
- he spent the night at my apartment when I offered
- he insists on paying for my food/drinks when we go out to eat
- he always talks about how "alone" he is
Yet he has made absolutely no moves. He just tells me to "keep in touch". He is not entirely over his ex-girlfriend. He talks about her all the time as well.
So are there high odds that he is interested in me or is there a chance that he thinks of us as "just friends"?
My next door neighbors, who are good friends of ours, just had their baby on Monday and are coming home from the hospital today (cesarean section). We've been watching their cats and I decorated their house a little with (easy to clean up) things celebrating "It's a girl!", etc.
However, I want to do more. I'm a professional photographer so I already know I'll be doing newborn pics of Baby Emily (per their request), and I have also photographed other major milestones (her pregnancy, their wedding) free of charge.
But I want to give them a USEFUL gift that won't break the bank. Any ideas?
I know she's breastfeeding. She's also not likely to go back to work, but they aren't loaded. Her husband has to go back to work (new job) TOMORROW.
Offering free babysitting isn't really much of an option as I'm clueless as how to care for newborns, both my husband and I being only children who weren't surrounded by younger cousins etc, lol.
I'm not a member of any parenting communities, as I don't believe I want children. Moms and dads, what would YOU have liked to have done for you and baby when you first came home? I'm super excited for them and want to help them make this transition as easy as possible!

Should all university students live on campus, even for just a semester?
I left when I was 19 to go to University out of town, returned at the age of 22. Currently 23 and living at home in one of the most expensive cities in Canada. It's not unusual in this city at all.
My boyfriend's brother is 30 and living at home, I consider that too old!
Depends on the person, I guess? I do think they should live away from home though for the life experience.
LOL Creepy I know. I'm trying to find scarab beetles for a school project.

if you don't have an SO, you can pretend. or tell me something you find nice about not having one.
I had a dream I was in one of those "the government is distributing vaccines to protect us but oh no the shots are really turning us into zombies and no one believes me" movies. As much as I like this particular genre, I woke up SICK to my stomach...and a little scared. :P
What movie would you WANT to find yourself in the middle of?
Did you experience any negative side effects?
If so, will you please tell me about them?

tqc, I've done something not so clever...
see, I found this automatic journal updater on the net, and so I used it, thinking that this was way too far from what I normally post for anyone to think it was serious.
thing is, this really nice girl (who I don't know irl) has thought it was real and I don't know how to tell her that it was a joke without sounding like a complete jerk.
this is the link, fyi. greyskyparadise.livejournal.com/5211.htm
so, basically, my question is, do I:
a. not mention it
b. tell her and apologise
oh, and I just added in the thing at the bottom which links to the site. I think the problem might have been that I left that off...

I like mine twice-fried...when they lightly fry them first and leave them to drain until a customer orders, and then re-fry it so it's super-crispy and cooks really fast.

Do you ever sleep outside in the summer when you're at home? If you don't because you can't where you live, would you if you could? Where/how do you sleep when you do? A hammock, sleeping bag on the lawn, the roof, etc.

I'm applying for a grant from my school so that I may make a short film. The highest they've ever awarded is $5000, but I know I have no chance of getting that. As a student I know how to keep my costs very low, but I don't know how much money it would cost to make a 20-30 minute video. Does anyone have any experience with a low-budget project of that size? Thanks for the help.
I took a pic of it at the zoo, but then forgot what it is.
My colleague just asked how my boyfriend felt about this meeting. I told my boyfriend about it before it happened, and he honestly doesn't care. Now my OTHER colleague is saying that my boyfriend's lack of jealousy is a problem.
Should he be jealous that I got drunk with a man I used to date? (I'm not asking if he should have stopped me, because that would have resulted in him getting his ass dumped, but asking if his complete nonchalance should be something I should worry about.)
Would you be jealous in this situation?
(Honestly, I'm just annoyed with them. But I want to see what TQC thinks. Feel free to ask any questions that would help you reach a conclusion.)
should i just go watch the balloons be inflated the night before?

Scenario: There is a co-worker who has poor hygiene. He tends to smell, wear the same clothes for a week, and has bad flatulence. Instead of going to a manager with her concern, you notice one of your other co-workers (who practically bathes in perfume, which in my opinion is just as bad as the smelly guy) takes out a bottle of perfume and starts spraying the bad smelling co-worker unbeknownst to him.
Would you be offended by this person spraying the other person? What would you do?
Would it be wrong to confront the person and tell her that there are more appropriate ways to deal with situations like this, or would you go to your manager and report her for spraying this guy?

I was listening to our local radio station today on the way home from work, and they were talking about internet/text message/email pet peeves. So this one lady calls in and says she hates "lol" and says that they are working on banning it and trying something else.. like.. "faf" (Funny as Fuck)
She sounded like she was in her 30's or 40's. and i'm thinking.. is she for real? I personally don't think "lol" is THAT bad unless someone says it all the time IRL.
So.. do you think someone could successfully ban "lol" from the internet?
Isn't "faf" the craziest thing ever?
Do you think her age has anything to do with how weird this is?
