Desperation

(no subject)

My friends grandpa just died today and she sent me what she wrote for herself to read at the funeral. At the end she mentioned that he had told her to write in the sand (sort of more complex-he got into what/how-she said he was babbling and his mind was pretty much gone) but she promised him she would and she'd bring her future husband/kids to and always think of him when she did. Well holidays are coming up, as we all know and while I was starting to decorate a box for her, I am now thinking of making or buying her one of those little sand gardens.

Is that a dumb idea? I mean assumably he meant the sand on beaches, not a little box of sand with some rocks in it.
Would it be too soon/too much of a downer for a Christmas present?

I accidentally stumbled across a beautiful diamond ring in my boyfriend's dresser drawer while grabbing him something to change into after work. D:

I am eighteen and he's twenty-one. We've been dating for all of six months and we've recently discussed getting engaged in the future. I would marry him, but not anytime soon, so I'm a little apprehensive and worried. I guess part of me is secretly wishing that it's intended to be a promise ring or something.

Do you think being engaged this early and this young is rushing it?

For those of you who were/are engaged, how long were you dating when you got engaged?

For the married folks, how long after you were engaged did you get married?

tqc, i have a mystery at hand! thegreat hatsby contacted me today but i can't figure out where it got our screennames from. mine's on lj and facebook and myspace and such but the other person doesn't have an lj and the only place their SN is public is a few obscure messageboards. according to wiki, the bot we're dealing with is the coho bot, which supposedly gets the SNs from twitter. neither of us have twitter. so wtf?

if you don't care, what's the most recent mini-mystery you figured out?

Are you annoyed by teenagers? Do they make you feel old?

I'm 22 and I get agitated around teenagers, especially 13-16 year olds. I can't even listen to them talk. I want to say I was never that dumb, but I know I was.

If you don't get annoyed by teenagers, what age group does bother you?

so, I have a follow up question for my previous question about the sand garden for my friend-
http://community.livejournal.com/thequestionclub/53836017.html?view=1400807665#t1400807665

Because I am short on money and also because I do not have any idea where to buy a sand garden, right now it looks like I'll be making one. Normally they come with those little rakes, which I don't think I would have an issue making (buy some dowels, cut, drill holes, glue together) However, I am left to wonder-since this isn't exactly for the same intent as a Japanese sand garden, should I just give her a small tool to write/draw in the sand with or should I do a traditional one?

Sorry, I tend to be one of those people that puts too much thought into these sorts of things and then agonizes/can't decide.

code of ethics

How do you define "evil"? Basically, what makes evil, evil?

Should science be regulated, that is, should someone have a say whether or not science can do certain things? For example, tests and studies involving live human experimentation and the manipulation of genes. Or should science be left alone and hopefully they will regulate themselves in a codes of ethics?

If, yes to the first one, who should do the regulating?

Shadowing

I'm looking into shadowing a pediatrician for a day (or more) and I was wondering how to go about doing so. My friend says that her pediatrician is awesome and that I should contact him, so I already know who I want to contact I just don't know how. She says I should call him because it is more professional and he can't ignore me that way. I think it would be easier for me to type an email though because I am not a phone person at all.

Does it come across as less professional to send an email?
Should I just suck it up and make a phone call instead?

No, really, WTF? So, I just got a phone call from Multicare (they want money, I know this). The lady asked for my husband and I said he wasn't in and asked if I could take a message. She gave me her info and then asked, "Who takes care of the bills, hon? You or him?" WTF? I stammered, "Uh, he does," mainly because I didn't want to talk to her anymore. She said, "Okay, well you just have him give me a call when he gets in. I'll be here all week from 8 to 5" in this little sing-song voice. I really, REALLY wish I'd told her it was none of her damn business and that for all she knew she wasn't even speaking to his wife.

WTF WAS THAT ABOUT? It was so weird. What would you have said?

There's a Zales (diamonds) ad all over the radio in LA just now, probably elsewhere too, that starts off as an amusing 'poke fun at men' sort of advert in an attempt to get them to choose fancy jewelry as a Christmas gift for their current girlfriend. How classy is the announcement at the end that financing is available? Am I wrong in thinking that if you have to finance a Christmas gift, you should probably do some soul searching?

I get that tis the season to consime, but it seems more blatant somehow....

What to get the woman who lost everything?

My mom invited my sister's boyfriend's mom to Christmas Eve. This woman's husband died of ALS just this summer. Less than two years ago, her other son died due to drug overdose. And the son my sister is dating? He has cancer. This has to be the saddest woman I an possibly imagine. At any rate, I'm glad my mom invited her to join us so she doesn't spend Christmas alone. But I figure I should get her something.

Now, I only met her once (at a funeral). I don't have much money. What would be a good gift for her?

1:  Have you ever rescheduled something important (doc, dentist, something else) because you had a bad feeling about it or did you go against your gut?

I had a doctor appointment today but the left blinker on the truck isn't working.  It's raining and I kept imagining myself trying to merge into the left lane and the person behind me crashing into me because they didn't know I was merging and the road was too wet for their tires to stop spinning.  I felt in my gut that it would be a really bad idea to go to this appointment so I rescheduled for next week.  =[

2:  What is your favorite scent of body wash and body spray/perfume?

I love sweet pea body wash and body spray.

Inspired by the full names question:

If you could pick a new middle name for yourself, what would it be?

When my partner and I get married, we're going to take my middle name (Burrow) as our family name. Which means I need a new middle name! If I use my current last name as my middle name it sounds really stupid.

Any specific suggestions for Danielle Something Burrow?

I have to get two small gifts for a Christmas lunch I'm going to. I guess we're going to have a gift exchange thing so they should be gender neutral. The recipients will be between the ages of 20 and 25, and are university students.

What should I get? Ideally I would like to spend less than $7 on each of them, but I don't want them to just be pieces of crap.

Maybe a 2009 planner could be one of them?

I suck at cooking.

The mix (Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie <i>Made with Dutch cocoa</i> Mix) says:
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons water (for cake-like brownies, increase water to 1/4 cup.)
1 Egg

Cooking Instructions:
1. Heat oven to 350 (325 for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 8-inch square pan.
2. Stir brownie mix, oil, water and egg with spoon about 50 times (batter may be lumpy). Spread in pan.
3. Bake 26 to 28 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean; cool.

It tells me how to make them more cake-like, but I want them gooey/chewy, is there any special way to make perfectly chewy and amazing?

GF vs BF

My bf's suppose-ed best friend is this girl who after meeting her I can see clearly has a thing for him. He says he isn't attracted to her in the slightest, but I have a huge issue with the fact that she is so blatantly rude to me and OVERLY nice to him. How do I tell him about my issue without having to hear from him that I shouldn't be jealous of her and blah blah blah? Trust me, I'm not jealous, I just know what I see and don't like it. And I certainly don't like the way she treats me.

My hairs is made of gold

Why do they charge 10 dollars extra to cut long hair? Is it that much more difficult? And what's the cut-off for "long" anyway?

My hair was definitely well past that, no argument there. I'm just wondering why it cost so much more (the cut itself was only 20 bucks, so that was a 50% add-on).

ETA: I just got a cut. No wash, dry, or product. Looks like this isn't standard across the board, so I'll just go someplace else next time (and ask beforehand so I'm not surprised when I'm being rung up!)

i bought a hoodie the other day that has like a grungy abstract splatter print on the front that i thought was pretty cute, and it was really cheap but on final sale.

but my friend just said that from across the room, the splatter design looks like a giant playboy bunny.

omg. I am 25 and a mom, I would not wear a giant playboy bunny on my sweater.

I can't return it cause it was final sale....

should i keep wearing it since it's not really a playboy bunny and that would be a waste of money to just toss it; or should i stop wearing it because people will think i'm wearing a giant playboy bunny and i still kind of like it?

I cannot get a hold of the correct office to ask this question for the life of me, and nothing comes up when I google it. So maybe one of you know an answer to this.

I went through school with the last name of my mother. But all of my legal documents have my father's last name. So everything but my high school transcripts and my graduation certificate have my father's last name on them. I even took my SAT with my father's last name since you have to have ID and such. Now, I'm applying to a community college in a completely different state I took high school, and I have no idea if this situation will bring up major problems. I sure it should bring up some, but I have no idea what to expect, and what to do to prepare for it.

Has anyone had any experience with this sort of thing?

I know a guy named Chad. He claims that his name is not short for anything. That it's just CHAD. I refuse to believe this. It has to be short for SOMETHING. Chadwick or Chadford or Chadly or something. I can't figure out WHAT it could be short for, but it's gotta be short for something. I can't accept that anyone would actually name their child CHAD.

So tell me this... do you know anyone named Chad, and is their name short for something? Would you ever name a child Chad?

1. Have you ever been told that you should have children? Have you ever told someone that they should reproduce/be a mom/be a dad? If so, why?

2. What do you think of eugenics? Do you disagree with all aspects of the philosophy or just some of them (and vice versa)?

When you look for a potential mate (pretend you don't have an s/o if you do) do you consider all the possibilities or do you think you narrow it down to people in your 'league'?
Do you believe there are leagues?
In your present or past relationships have both you and your partner been in around the same league?
If you were attracted to someone WAY out of your league, would you pursue it anyway? (Could be based on looks or life)

So, tomorrow I am going to a memorial service for my late friend. He dressed like a pirate most of the time, and a fancy gentleman the rest of the time.

So my question to you is, do I dress like a pirate, or do I temporarily move 'fancy dress Saturday' to Tuesday?

If you think both are tacky, what do you suggest? I am not doing the whole 'boohoo, I will wear black *mournmourn*' thing, 'cos he would kick me in the teeth for being such a sap.

TQC,
This is the first quarter that my dad paid for my tuition out of his own pocket and of course I just had to do fucking miserably. I ended up dropping a class and he was, understandably, very angry. But he doesn't know yet that I failed a class as well. :( I was thinking I would write him a letter telling him how sorry I was and that I already paid to retake it next quarter and that I would pay him back for both classes as soon as I could. I work at 6 AM so I would just leave it on the counter so he could read it while I am gone.

Does this sound like a good idea to avoid as much screaming and yelling as possible? Or should I enforce the don't ask/don't tell policy?

What is your favourite brand of orange juice? (Your most favourite might be fresh, natural orange juice, it is mine) but among processed orange juice?

Mine is Simply Orange. It's the best. With pulp.

Sorry about the amount of questions. I sort of need quick answers.

1. At a wedding ceremony, what ring/ rings are supposed to be worn? Do you come in with the engagement ring on and then get the wedding band? Do the man and woman both exchange rings? Can you just have a wedding band and no engagement ring or other rings? I'm so clueless here and google is not getting through to me. And I'm looking for a minimum requirement without having no rings whatsoever. Can there just be an exchange of bands between the groom and bride?

2. How long does it take to have a ring engraved? How much does it generally cost? Are there any on-the-spot engraving services available that you know of? How much does that usually run?

3. Is there any way of getting undergraduate student loans without a co-singer and with no established credit history aside from Stafford and Perkins loans?

4. Is there a waiting period between marrying someone, divorcing them, and re-marrying the same person?

5. If you have been married before, is there any way for a future boyfriend/fiance/husband to find out if you want that kept a secret? I'm not planning on deceiving anyone here. I'm just curious about this one.

Thanks guys.

EDIT: The first few questions aren't for me and the last two are out of curiosity. I've been wondering #4 ever since I saw The Parent Trap. These aren't my plans!

For one of the presents I'm getting my boyfriend is a calender. Should I write in dates on it? Like birthdays of his friends and family. Or should I just leave it blank?
