do you get as much sleep as you'd like?
if you don't is it because you choose to stay awake, you just cannot fall asleep or your bed* isn't as comfortable as you wished?
if it's something else, will you elaborate?

and for those who can't sleep:
do you ever get tired of people asking you questions about sleep?

How do you act around people after they confess to have an unrequited crush on you? What if you're invited to their birthday party?

EDIT: How do you know if they got over you? Or are you one of those people who believe that no one truly gets over a crush?

Is there any really good reasons that could potentially justify buying a Soviet Army dosimeter geiger counter, other than "holy fuck that's cool"?

Would you actually eat Soviet Army surplus food rations labeled "good until 2010"? Would you do it if someone triple-dog-dared you? Would you do it if someone bet you more than the cost of said rations that you would?

i'm thinking of a book but i don't know what it's called. the one i read was paperback, a book that was bigger than standard and had a blue notebook picture on the front. there were drawings and a name (along with the title of the book and the author) carved into it. the book is about a 14 year old boy who went away to some kind of summer retreat (in florida, i think?) and kissed a girl and how that was his summer of entering puberty/"adulthood. it's a hilarious young adult story written in diary form. i think the title had 5 or 6 words.

do you know what it is?

There's a plate of food in front of you. There's the main item, and two sides. You like the main item, one side, and are fairly indifferent about the second side. How do you go about eating this? Which do you eat first? Do you take turns with your food, mix them all together, have a little bit of everything in one fork bite? Do you bother eating the second side? Do you save the best item for last?

Don't answer all those questions, just tell me your eating habits.

2) My employer offers tuition reimbursement. I'm being stupid and shy about inquiring about it, I don't want to ~impose~ even though I think I want to take advantage and pursue an accounting degree. How do I get over myself/what should a polite e-mail to my boss inquiring about this say?

My best friend (or so I thought) deleted me off her friends list, the day after my bday. She didn't come to my party, though she was invited, so I couldn't have drunkenly offended her. The only thing I can think she's mad about is I bought a new car that she thinks I can't afford it (which I can, and she doesn't know my budget anyways, so wtf). My husband was slightly less than happy at the time, though he got over it and I wrote about this in my lj, and she wrote a post about "people" airing their relationship dirty laundry and not respecting their partners in marriage - she even called me "them" treasonous (after she wrote one about "people" buying things they can't afford).

WHAT THE HELL IS HER PROBLEM? Should I delete her as well or just act like I don't care? My husband thinks she's mad I didn't involve her in every decision process and haven't gotten riled by her "vague" posts. Because of this, he thinks me not recognizing her behaviour will drive her crazy(er).

Oh, ps, LOL, she's 42 and "hates drama."

I hear that people who only like themselves sexually live very fulfilling lives. Is this true?

1. I need to move a bedroom's worth of stuff from New York to Orlando. What's the most cost-effective way to do this? Renting a truck and driving down myself is not an option, for various reasons.

2. What's the best way to clean dusty, dirty stuffed animals that have been in a closet for a while? Would sticking them in the laundry work?

Dr. TQC,

On Saturday night, my throat was slightly sore, like I was getting a cold. Sunday, it was a bit worse, but I figured I'd wake up sniffly and pain free the next morning.

I missed school yesterday because I could barely swallow. I didn't eat anything, but slept all day.

It is now 3:30 a.m. And I haven't slept since 7:30 p.m. I'm tired, but swallowing hurts too much.

I have some sort of rare disease, y/n?

A bit of underhanded logic escapes me, and I'm usually pretty good at it, sooooo...

The Iowa Lottery is running an ad campaign letting customers know that retailers aren't supposed to check whether your ticket is a winning ticket unless the ticket is signed. Who are they trying to trick into signing the ticket, and what are they trying to catch them for that is either only effective or most effective to do in this manner? It certainly can't be to catch people who stole a winning ticket from someone before they could redeem it, because the clerk would point out that it wasn't signed, and it'd be signed on the spot - legally, according to the lottery rules (at least in Nebraska), now belonging to the person who signed it.

What would be your initial reaction to someone you've known for a long time (more than a year, three in my case) asking you on a date in an e-mail or other online medium, seemingly "out of nowhere"? Would your reaction be different if you know they've asked out other people of your sex in the regular group of people from which you know them? (Assume they didn't go around asking out everyone in the group in the past week, or even the past few months, heh.) Are you male or female? I direct this line more at the females, but the reaction from either side is interesting...

It's been decided, by some crazy twist of fate, that you have to spend the next year of your life in solitude. There are two ways you can choose to do this;

A) Middle of nowhere. You're dropped off on an island. There is a small shack for shelter. For food you have egg producing chickens, a veggie garden, and a net to fish with. Theres probably some coconuts around to. You also have access to fresh water, but it's a good mile away from your shack. There is no electricity and no plumbing. So your survival depends on the garden, chickens,  your ability to fish and fetch water.

B) Heart of the city. You're in a studio apartment. But you're not allowed out and no one is allowed in (duh). You don't have a phone and or TV. And no books. You do, however, have the internet. But you can only use it to order food and wiki. You can order as much food as you like. You don't have to do anything, you can pretty much sit down and not move for days. You've got good views for people watching.

So which one would you choose?

ETA: I just got a call from another position I applied to. I have done a phone screening and they asked me to come in for an interview with the Director of Health and Safety as well as the manager of Health and Safety. The interview is Friday at 11:30am. I would much prefer this job as it's more in my field and a better opportunity. The one that called my references is more administrative and would be while I look for another job. I company A (the administrative one that checked my references) calls and offers me the job, what do I do?

Have you ever been in a "Who's Who" kinda book? What is the point? My husband is being courted for one for his profession, and $200 buys a 2 year membership, and while we would both normally consider this stupid, they're offering 2 free airline tickets for a membership. That's like a $700 value. Should we go for it?

Can I make cookie dough, freeze it, then break off chunks to bake and eat? Or do I have to let the dough thaw first?

I'm trying to put together a registration form for a conference that I'm organizing and I need to know if the participant is disabled so we can make special arrangements for them.

Do you think I could just get away with putting in the handicap symbol and putting "I will need special assistance" beside it with a checkbox? It's probably not that big of a deal but I don't want to offend anyone.

Should I just dump them in a bunch of giant plastic storage bins and put them in the attic?

so, ive got the flu. im not sure whether im going to be able to make it through the few days left in the week of classes. ive already used up my 3 unexcused absences for the semester (go me) so im not sure what to do. the doctors office said they wouldnt be able to give be a note besides for just the days theyve seen me, so i feel like im a little screwed here. do you think if i emailed my teachers when i dont feel up to class, that they would count that as excused and not take points off my grade? because most of the time even standing up and walking makes me feel dizzy and like im just going to pass out, so if it gets any worse, i dont know if ill be able to make it to some of my classes.

I have this amazing ability to bring up relationships that don't exist anymore. As in, I ask someone about their girlfriend's art project, and they just broke up and didn't tell me. I wished someone a "Happy Anniversary" to someone who wasn't with that person anymore. I invited someone to visit me next time she's in the area to see her boyfriend - it was over.

But most recently, I ran into my friend's husband, who I had never met but recognized from the wedding photos, and was all "hi OMG, nice to finally meet you, i've heard so much about you, tell R I say hi!" and when I went to post on her facebook wall that I had seen him, I saw pictures on her profile of her kissing another guy and noticed that she was no longer listed as "married".

1) Did I fuck up, or was it a safe assumption that after dating for 5 years, someone would stay married for more than 6 mos? Do I really need to preface every conversation about dating with "you're still with him/her, right?"?
2) Would you reassure me that I'm not the only one who does stuff like this?

Mostly just to relax and/or to shave my legs. I hate shaving my legs in the shower. And I also like REALLY hot baths when I'm sick.

If your SO continually spoke about themselves on the phone, never asking how you were, how would it make you feel?
Would you say something?
Also, what would you do if they continually expressed doubt in the health/stability/happiness in the relationship, even though they themselves admit it is without cause or reason?

What was/is your favorite stuffed animal as a kid/right now?

Mine is a caterpillar named Lots O' Legs that I've had since I was, like, 6 mos old. I would die if anything ever happened to it because it means SO much to me! I'll probably even be buried with the darn thing, lol.

Do you still have it?

Hell yes.

So, in a matter of..oh a half hour, I've found out that about five or ten people I went to school with/grew up with are either married or have a child or two.
I'm nineteen.
Should I find this odd?

In non-related question asking news.

Can I call you Sweetcheeks?

references for college application

OK so I am in the process of filling out tedious university application profiles. (You know, those ones that ask you to list all the activities you've done...UGH)

They want me to provide reference for all the activities and I honestly forgot the info or don't attend the school I did the activity in. (So it would be weird for my old coach to get a phone call from coughtorontocough asking to verify the fact that I fucking played field hockey in 2006! Oh, and I'm pretty sure my drama teacher left the country or something...)

This is starting to sound like a rant. But my actual question is: in your experience, do you think that universities actually give a crap about references? (Meaning, should I put effort into this) Have you had any bad experiences?

I have to decide on my 2500 word research paper/final paper topic; it is due tomorrow at 1 pm. It must be related to Hurricane Katrina. My class' central theme is Hurricane Katrina and we have done assloads of research on the storm and the events surrounding it, especially the governmental (or perceived governmental) inadequacies and the treatment of citizens. So, if you were in my position, what would you write about?

Is it late where you live?
What do you think of Chik Fil A?

Do you think the rhythm/speed of your speech affects people's opinions of you?

Someone told me that they thought I was a bitch when they first met me because I talk slowly and I "sound bored" when I talk.
