Which side do you ... zip on?

For the ladies (cue the Beyonce): on your pants/jackets, if there's a flap covering your zipper, is it open to the left or to the right? (i.e. which hand would you use to do the zipper).

For the dudes: have you ever put on a pair of pants or a jacket where you had to use your left hand for the zipper? Did it really throw you or did you handle it with equanimity?

I own a handful of chick pants. This pair I have on isn't, but apparently I thought it was.

i have a thermacare heat wrap that i'd love to use on my back when i sleep. i sleep on my stomach so the "no extra pressure" issue is covered, but i was wondering what on earth happens after the first 8 hours? does your skin explode?

should i just set a timer on my phone for 8 hours so i won't die?
if i do though, i won't get to sleep as much as i'd like to. :(

So I have a wart on my foot. I've tried all kinds of over the counter wart removers, and nothing's worked, so I decided to see a doctor.

Is this something I'd HAVE to see a dermatologist  for, or do you reckon a general practitioner could take care of it? It seems pretty simple...

Rotating-door policy or lifetime guarantee?

Once you find a friend for a certain niche (biffer, shopping buddy, movie buddy, bitch-about-boys friend, etc.), do you make sure to keep them in that spot in your life, even if your situation changes (they move away, work schedules change to conflict, etc.), or do you end up filling the gap with somebody else pretty easily?

Would you stop talking to a friend because you find out they have different views on life / politics / religion than you?

If they did something really stupid, like slept with your recent ex, would you forgive them? Immediately? After a week or a month? Or would you hold a grudge forever against them being a friend-tard?

What do you think about people lining their eyes with white eyeliner Collapse )? Do you find it attractive and appealing? From what I gather it's supposed to make the eyes look bigger but, IMO, it just looks wrong.

What make-up practices do you find strange and unsettling (or just plain unattractive)? Optionally, pics would be nice because I am at work and it is super boring. :P


I'm not wild about it when people match their eye shadow to their eyes, either, but I know that approximately 70 billion blue eyed chicks with frosty blue eyeshadow disagree violently.

My friend just woke me up asking me if I would sell him Xanax (??). I had a really bad day yesterday, sleep was my last ditch effort to cheer up, and now I'm wide awake with a headache at 3 in the fucking morning.

Should I bake cookies or go buy cigarettes, make coffee, and sit in my hot tub for four hours?
Or should I do both?
Or should I just fuck it all and watch a movie (even though it will never put me to sleep?)

I receive weekly child support checks from my daughter's father, who gets paid weekly for some strange reason, and his wages are garnished so it comes straight to me before he even sees it.

But I haven't gotten a check in three weeks which has never happened before.

Would I receive some kind of notice if he were to have like lost his job by any chance and is unable to make payments?

I'm hesitant to outright ask him because he might spit venom if my only motive for asking about his well being is cause I want his money. I did ask the general "how is everything going?" hoping he might spill work details if there is any news to share, but I really just want to know what's going on with the money. lol.

Anyway... so does anybody know if I would receive any type of notification?

"Emergency"???

So, my husband and I discovered that our POS condo didn't have any water coming out of any faucets at around 2am last night. This morning when I left for work at 8:30 we still didn't have water. I looked outside and there were no signs that they had to shut the water off for repair (like I said, it's a POS and they do this to us a lot, but I didn't think at 2am on a Sunday, but who knows). So I called the management line, it's was closed. However, there was an option to call another number if it's am emergency that *DOES NOT* need police, ambulance or fire assistance. I called that number and left a message 90 minutes ago.

Is this an "emergency"? Honestly, what else would they call an emergency if you don't count the kind you'd call 911 for? We own this place, so if the heat was dead then that'd be our own problem and not management. So I figured no water and the possibility of pipes breaking because of this an "emergency", am I wrong? I'm also worried that they'll be closed tomorrow because of the holiday.

Haha, I feel so stupid because I work in the operating room and I know what real emergencies are so this feels so stupid in comparison.


*EDIT* We do not pay the water bill. It is covered in our association fee.

inspired by all the booze posts this morning

is there a law where you live that doesn't allow alcohol sales in stores after a certain time of night?



here you can't buy alcohol of any kind after 9. it's really silly, especially because it wasn't put in place to curb alcohol abuse or drunk driving like i originally thought. i'm pretty sure it's because the tavern league got the law passed so that you have to go to the bars. whaaaaaat.

All these what ifs are scaring me beyond belief, but I know it's more than time, and since I can feasibly afford it and still manage to pay my bills, pay for school, and all that lark.

Worst Mapquest Driving Direction

Approximately 6 or 7 years ago, I was send instructions for typing in the driving directions in Mapquest.

They were to go from one place in the middle of nowhere in the UK about 10 miles to another middle of nowhere town.

What made it interesting is that instead of going in a straight line, Mapquest gave instructions that included crossing the Channel into France, up into Sweden, down through Germany and Italy over the Mediterranean through Africa, across the Mediterranean again, up through Spain up the Atlantic and back into England.

Does anyone know what I need to type in as my origin and destination to get this crazy result or to a website which shows a picture of the trip/article about said bug?

My aunt and uncle lost everything in a house fire two nights ago. Needless to say, they are devastated. They've lived in that house for about 35 years and lost so many family mementos along with their two cats. All they have left are the clothes on their back. Luckily -- if there is a 'luckily' in this situation -- they are fairly well-off (he's a dentist) and they had insurance. That being said, they are just a mess right now.

I want to send them a care package. I'll be sending it to where he works so he'll be sure to get it. I don't have a whole lot of money, and would rather send them material items than a monetary value. I just have no idea what to extend to them. They live in Canada, and I am in the US.

1. What kinds of things would be appreciated in a care package? Would it be appropriate to buy a few shirts for each of them or necessary essentials?
2. What would not be allowed to send over the border?
3. Have you ever lost everything in a fire?

Thanks so much for your time.

To Skip Or Not To Skip?

Should I let my eleven-year-old kid skip school Tuesday to go with me to an inauguration extravaganza at our local movie theater?

He's been following the election intensely, he's an excellent student with excellent grades and he hasn't missed any school this year. His school is pretty far away, so if he skips, it will be for the whole day.

My sister thinks he should suck it up and watch it at school. What do you folks think?

*EDIT* Thanks for your input everybody. I bought our tickets. The theater I planned to go to was sold out. So we're going to a theater nearer his school. The plan now is for us to go and have a good time at the extravaganza in the morning, then he'll go to his afternoon classes.

Someone who I haven't seen since July just left me a facebook comment that she "can't wait" for my birthday.
What's the appropriate response to that?
Do people ever do that to you?
Do you do that to other people?


When was the last time someone* said something that made you say "wtf?"

In American society today, do you think that the GLBT community or minority communities such as African Americans face larger amounts of discrimination?


I'm not saying they're not both victims of equal discrimination, I would just like some input because I think it might be an interesting paper for my senior thesis.

Do you think we will have lots of black people running in the next few elections? Mexicans?

Mail...grrrrr

So I screwed up when I put in my change of address and wrote:

My name
Address
City, blah blah

Instead of

My name
c/o the dude whose name is actually on the mailbox
Address
City, blah blah

on my change of address forms.

I finally caught onto this when two important pieces of mail failed to arrive after waiting for them for three to five weeks each.

Then I used a label maker and taped my name onto the mailbox.

So, is there any chance the mail is actually going to be re-sent and get to me or do I have to call up the people and ask them to send me these documents again? What happens to mail that is claimed to be sent to a non-valid address when there is nowhere else to send it?

I know they were sent to this address because I confirmed my address with the people sending it, it's not like they accidentally sent them to my former address.
