Scenario: You're a teenage girl. Not 18, but not 13. You're over the age of consent in your state. You have a thing for a guy you work with, who is about seven years older than you. He doesn't show an incredibly obvious amount of interest in you, but he's always nice to you, he makes eye contact, greets you by name when you see him, asks you for gum, etc. Normal co-worker stuff. He's quiet so you never know what he's really thinking.

Would you tell him you like him?

I used to go to school with girls named Rashnique and Amanduh. My neighbor's granddaughter is named Heavenleigh. Why the hell do people do this to their kids?!?!

Bonus: What's the most terrible last name you've ever heard? I had a teacher's aide in the first grade and her name was, I shit you NOT, Ms. Capanegro. One of my mother's clients was a Mrs. Crotchfelt.

ETA: I forgot about a substitute my senior year named Mr. Mandic and a customer at my work who's first name is Sweety.

tqc, i have a dilemma.

i'm watching forrest gump. every time i see the scene where older jenny stones her house and then falls into the dirt, it reminds me of this famous painting with a woman seated in front of a small building in a field. i'm with a group of people who have no idea what i'm talking about and don't believe me, as i have no way of describing this painting besides, "famous painting of a woman with a house." googling that phrase does nothing.

WHAT PAINTING AM I THINKING OF, TQC?!

Fairs, carnivals, and conventions have their share of creepers.  Have you had any notable experiences with creepy people that either worked at or attended such an event?

I went to the Texas Renaissance Fest about a month ago, and a middle aged guy selling beef jerky started following my group of friends while whispering, "Psssst... jerky!"  He then proceeded to flirt with both the males and females of the group.

My friend and I went to see the movie "The day the earth stood still" tonight.

Keanu Reeves is yummy. The movie, well, so-so. Although i'm pretty kind on many of my movie ratings...

Anyhow there was a quote in it that I liked and wanted to use for something. Something along the lines of "In the brink of destruction we find the power to change, this is our moment, don't take it away". Trying to get the exact quote. Any chance someone else who saw it has an excellent memory, or if you're going to see it, you can get the specific quote for me in full?

Thanks!

I don't understand my students who think that they are going to show/teach me/their parents/the system/the MAN a lesson by purposely failing a class.

EDIT: I am not talking about students who do not understand. These students I'm talking about CAN do the work. When they do turn in homework, or take the test - they score high. These are not students who do not understand. But they purposely do not do homework, or turn in tests blank.

I'm supposed to get a small gift for a coworker for a gift exchange on Tues. I asked around and found that a hat would be a gift he might like. I went to Target the other day and found a hat with the Anheuser-Busch symbol that was nice and a hat with The Punisher skull on it that was also nice. All the other caps were retarded and had things like dallas cowboys or miami ink on them. This guy is a fan of guns, John Wayne, and boats/ships. Idk what to get him. Do you think one of those hats would be okay or should I look for other hats?

Is there any place (in the US, Boston-based) to fix up a pair of scratched / faded glasses? Not the lenses, the frames themselves, and they are plastic. I love love my glasses but they're starting to look kind of ratty after almost seven years. They're not a style that can be replaced, so I'm looking for a way to make them look new-er or at least protect them for the future.

Or does anyone know a particular do-it-yourself remedy for dull / scuffed frames?

I am already aware of http://www.fixyourframes.com, and am trying to find an option that doesn't involve mailing my glasses someplace because, well, I need them to see!

i went to do laundry in my apartment complex laundry place and a pair of what i'm pretty sure is my underwear was hanging from the pegboard. a newish pair that i kinda liked. it's not a huge complex, so i'm pretty sure they're mine. i took them down and threw them in the wash load.

but i'm not sure where they've been for the last ten days, and the idea of them wandering around the laundry room is a little upsetting.

do i return them to my normal underwear supply and wear them like nothing happened? or are they done?

What liquid foundation do you use on a regular basis and whats so great about it?

I've been using So Ingenious by Estee Lauder for about 7 or 8 years and love it, but it was discontinued several years ago. As a result I have to get it on Ebay, and the quality of an item that has been sitting for years (new or not) is definately not the same. It's also just getting harder to find on there in my shade.

I need to find a good replacement. Doesn't need to be cheap, but availability on Ebay is always nice since I never liked the $32 price tag of the stuff I use. Something for everyday use that is easy to apply and lightweight.

Please share your favs.

Have you ever been friends with someone that you absolutely worship, and then watch someone else say that YOU'RE way better at whatever you worship your friend for?

..this is an awkwardly-worded question. real-life base, aka example: me and a friend of mine both applied to the roleplay, but she got rejected after submissions, and i got accepted as-is. i have WORSHIPPED this girl since i met her for her roleplay, so it's wierd. i'm like "how did i get in and her not. o_0"

also: livejournal +mem feature. do you use it? did you? for what?

I just went back and deleted all the memories i had from 2006, because none of them are relevant anymore.


EDIT: i don't mean like 'shrine' and 'oh god bless me with your presence' worship, i mean like, i really look up to this person and admire their ability and would like to be as good as them.

Do you ever notice people being too polite to minorities? I notice it with handicapped people a lot. People sometimes go really far out of their way to be nice to them.

A girl I go to school with referred to someone (I think it was a historical figure) as "the African-American gentleman" which just seems like overkill to me. I mean, I doubt she would refer to a white guy with that level of formality.

What do you think of this phenomenon? Does it count as racism/discrimination? Is it forgivable because their intentions are good? (I am talking about the cases where their intentions actually are good. Not the people who are trying to hide their overt prejudice, but the people who are genuinely just trying to be nice, and they just don't know any better.)

Would this be the wrong reason to take this? I'm just being a baby because I've never taken anything in my life.

you're done talking

Right or Wrong?

I work at an hourly job. We get paid time and a half for any hour we work over 40. Someone told me today that it isn't worth it to work more than 8 or so overtime hours because the more you work the less you get because they tax it more. True or False?

What do you call a big bottle of pop/soda? (I ask because we call them 2 Litres, but Americans don't go by litres so...???)


Well blow me down! What do you call the various sizes of booze bottles?

What would cause mildew/mold etc. to grow in a particular spot?

A while back I noticed there was light yellowish stuff on the grout in my bathroom, but only in a couple very small spots in the same general area (between my wall and toilet-tad behind toilet) not on the other side of the toilet, not in front of it, not near the shower etc. I don't mop/vacuum as much as I should but when I do I do the whole floor so it's not as if that section gets cleaned less than the rest. I tried washing it away with water and it didn't work, floor cleaner didn't take it away either-in both instances it went away temoporaraly but just seemed to come back like the next day (when dry?) Is it something besides mildew mold?

what's your nighttime/before bed routine?

take out contacts, brush teeth, wash face, lotion & skin care stuff. change into PJ's and browse internet for much too long. organize bedroom and pick out clothes/write a to-do list/reminders for the next day. sleep
