Hmm. TQC, with California's recent passing of Proposition 8, which amended the state Constitution to restrict the definition of marriage to a union between a man and a woman...WHAT DOES THAT MEAN for people who do not necessarily fit into the binary gender system???? I mean, besides basically banning gay marriages, does this mean now that people who aren't very obviously biologically and emotionally male or female could be denied the right to marry? Or are people going to have to be TESTED to prove their gender before they will be allowed to be married?!?! Or in regards to the Constitution, does man not necessarily mean male, or woman necessarily mean female?????? D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D:
Or am I just all confused, and going down a slippery slope and not making sense?
On a lighter note, I'm going to attempt to sugar my legs tonight. Have you ever tried it before? How did it work for you?
Do you find this as gross as I do?
Have you ever worn a wristband for some excessive period of time? Why?
Would that make vehicles cheaper?
I have also been listening to Christmas music? Is it too early for this?
Do any of you have any Christmas songs you are willing to email to me?
Will you post a picture of something that has to do with Thanksgiving or Christmas that makes you happy?
Look, ancient Grecian fart/dick jokes.
If you can say, does it taste fairly authentic?
In general, have you had falafel, what did you think?
If not, would you try it?
So, I ask you, TQC, is this man a pioneer or starting to smell like an attention whore?
And is he really a man if he keeps on having kid after kid?
On the opposite side of the coin, what if this man had originally been born a man but had decided to call himself a woman but had still kept his penis and testicles in order to impregnate his wife. Would you considered that man a woman?
Should there be a new gender name for people who want to play the fence like this? If so, what should it be? (Personally, I am leaning towards "Shman".)

After shooing a bunch of ladybugs out of my apartment, seeing another four in my friend's apartment, and opening the closet at work to find like seven of them, why are there so many ladybugs in Chicago?
Which one is smarter: you or your SO?
For the first time ever, I find myself as the less intelligent one in the relationship. Since I am pretty damn smart myself, this means my boyfriend is scary smart.
If you don't have an SO, use your last relationship. Does it bother you when you are the less intelligent partner? I kind of like it, it means I don't have to think as much! :P

What the hell's wrong with me?
Do you ever have trouble working yourself up to doing things when it comes to official/important communication? I usually do the email thing faster, but I always avoid the phone if at all possible.
I have one more general education requirement to fulfill. To fulfill said requirement, I can either take Intro to Marine Biology, or Intro to Human Genetics. I have taken the upper division equivalents for both these classes so, honestly, I can probably do both of these classes in my sleep. I would prefer the Intro to Marine Biology class, not only because I heart marine biology, but you also get a free trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium (which is like, one of the COOLEST aquariums EVER). The thing is, if I take that class, I'd be forced to move one of my four hour long labs to night time, meaning I'd be stuck on campus until 9pm, without a car, and the buses hardly ever come. The Intro to Human Genetics fits into my schedule quite nicely, but you don't get a cool field trip anywhere in that class. Plus...genetics is boring...
So, what should I do, Intro to Marine Biology, or Intro to Human Genetics?
Did you ever beleive this? How old were you when you discovered you were wrong?
Last Christmas we got chocolates covered cookies ,which were gross btw, and the year before that some insulated mugs, which I then gave to my dad as a gift.

*in the event you don't celebrate christmas, substitute it for whichever gift-giving occasion is coming up next.
So, should I rough it and camp with the boys or just not go? Read: no shower, no legit bathroom, nothin'. Tents and sleeping bags. I wanted to get a hotel so I wouldn't have to brave the state trekking drive tonight. Its far. Stopping when I got tired was kind of important. Also note that I've got a bad back so the possibility of me being immobilized from sleeping on the ground is sorta likely.
I got it figured out. My friend has a camper there. All is well with the world.

Today is my last day. Yesterday we ordered pizza for lunch and the other boss, the head guy, handed me an envelope and told me not to open it until 5pm today. I cheated a little and opened it just a minute ago. I had figured it was a severance package of some sort.
It turned out to be a 'Christmas gift' the same one I got last year. A $250 dollar gift card to Dick's sporting goods. Which is cool, but that doesn't really do me any good. Last year I used it to buy a new winter coat. I would have preferred cash, or extended health insurance for a couple months.
Would this piss you off?
is it possible to know who checked my facebook page?
If so, what do you think?

Last year for Christmas we bought him a set of tools that saved his life. He already has a Ducati and a Hd Sportster. He has 3 guitars, and he pretty much has all the music he likes in his itunes so Cd's are out. I was thinking about getting him a new Ipod, but everytime I got him one or lend him one in the past...he had to sell it to get money for food and gas...and I don't want to risk that again.
Any ideas? Serious/Non Serious answers!

2)For the ladies:Would you be interested in taking striptease and/or pole dancing classes or do you feel that sort of thing is demeaning to women?

3)When was the last time you wanted to bang your head on a wall?
Does this apply to internship cover letters as well? I am trying to write one right now and it seems silly to pretend that my presence would benefit them at all except for my skills at getting coffee or filing papers.

sorry, i am really nervous about these things.
I have a desktop computer at home which I had to reinstall Windows XP on. Once it was installed, I decided to try and install Windows Vista. It turns out my system wasn't compatible with Vista, so halfway through the setup an error message appeared. Now when I start the computer it goes right to the Vista setup - even if I put the original Windows XP cd in.
What do I do to fix it??

So after months of hearing about how FUCKING AMAZING this book is and now that there's a movie coming out, I forced myself to read Twilight last night. It was about how I'd expected, pretty bland and overdramatic.
But I'm just curious... Do they ever fuck? The main characters, I mean. It sounds like it would be hot. I feel like I'm missing out here. I'm totally not going to read the other three books if they never fuck.

I was supposed to go ice skating with my daughter and some other adults who ended up having to cancel. I have a free coupon for today only. I am debating whether to still go with just my little kid. Would you think it was weird (like, boring and lame and friendless) to see a solitary adult with a solitary kid out on the ice rink?
Should I go?
My crushperson and his son maaaaaaaay or may not go, so that's kind of incentive to want to go but also makes me not want to look lonerish in front of him, or like ~desperate~ for still going without friends.... if either of those affects your opinion at all.

He ignores me completely, but my MIL tells me that his girlfriend comes over to "hang out" when he ditches her to go party with his friends so my sister says I should write DIVORCE PAPERS really, really huge on the envelope and leave it somewhere obvious for said girlfriend to see. It's been almost 2 years and I'm fed up.
Is this too bitchy? Any other suggestions? I'm trying to go the uncontested, 'summary dissolution' route because I honestly don't want to see his face ever again.

There is an offer on Facebook to rent out an apartment - so I would have the whole apartment to myself - from December 10 until January 10. It costs twice as much as my current monthly rent, but it's only for a month. It's also too far away from work for me to walk so I would have to buy a monthly pass. That said, I could afford it, although it would sap up a lot of my savings.
Should I tell the person I'm interested? I can move out of this apartment with no notice since I have no contract.
