I <3 TLV

CSI Fans?

I'm still trying to find this guy. I'm trying to find the ep of CSI he was in - I've looked through an ep list but I totally failed at finding it. IIRC, he's the therapist in this ep. In the episode, several teenagers are killed during a pill party in a rich girl's house. Rich girl steals her murdered sister's money from her parent's safe during the party and isn't killed. Rich girl had made a deal with her therapist's receptionist so that they would share the money. Does anyone know which episode this is???


[Edit: I FOUND THE GUY!!!! He's Rick Hoffman. Wtf why isn't he listed in the Lie to Me cast? He was definitely in that episode. Oh well.]

Inspired by a broken Spanglish conversation with my grandmother;

1. Are you one of those people who can understand English through the heaviest of accents or are you one of those people who turn to others and go, "What did he just say? Was that even English?"

2. Do you have friends and family members for whom English is not their first language?
a. What is their first language?

1. Would you rather:

a. Suffer serious seizures that will age your brain 1-6 years per seizure. You'll always be at risk for having a seizure, anywhere you go?
b. Take medication that will slow your thought process, render you impotent and make you feel kind of like a zombie all the time?

2. Do you know anyone with epilepsy?

edit: You don't know the frequency of your seizures. You've had 3 without meds, and your brain aged about 10 years in those two weeks.

Is anyone on medication for anxiety? I have really bad anxiety, and now that I'm back on insurance, I need to get some medicine to help calm it. I get so anxious in the car with other people driving, like we're going to have a wreck or something, and I also get really anxious when it's late at someone else's house because I'm scared of something bad happening, like a kidnapper or something.

TQC, what time did you go to bed last night? What time did you have to get up?

I went to bed around 1:30am. Got up at 5:30am.

Why do I keep staying up so late when I know I have work the next morning? It's getting very irritating. :(

So last night, I had some people over for some drinking. We got pretty drunk and ended up staying awake til...about 3 in the morning. One person stayed over. I am a ridiculously early riser and woke up at 6:30 and cleaned. What is the earliest acceptable time that I can wake up the person who stayed over and drive him home without being unreasonable?

I live in a 4-plex. The day I moved in, the upstairs neighbors moved out. I just found out the across the hall lady is moving out. This leaves me and a retired cop. I'm really quiet, even when I have people over. Why are all my neighbors moving out?

My mom is doing P90X. She's way way way into it, and found an online community about it. She got really excited about that, so I pointed her towards the lj one. Is directing my fifty-two year old mother to lj strange?

Since these are both somewhat involved questions, I feel the need to throw in an easy one. What are your plans for today?

I've basically been wait-listed for a counselor job at a camp this summer. I worked there last year and this year they recruited me back. Only thing is it took me about a month to re-apply. I had to choose between this and something else I was obligated to do during the summer. I didn't want to apply and then possibly look bad by flaking out (bad move? Should I have just applied right away?)

When I didn't hear from them in a few days, I e-mailed them and they told me they pretty much have everyone, but they also said to please give them time because they're trying to fit me in. I don't know what to make of this. I don't know whether to think I blew my chance completely or I have the job and I just need to wait.

One one hand, I wasn't rejected outright - if they didn't want me and there was no way of me getting hired because they are full staff, they'd say it, wouldn't they? 
On the other hand, Friday will make a week since I applied - it's taking a while and I think with every passing day it looks bleaker and bleaker. I also don't understand how they can fit an extra employee to an already full staff. They have to have a financial limit for how many people they can hire, right?

I'm going to e-mail them again in a few days - I don't want to annoy them by e-mailing them back too soon when they asked me to patient.

What do you think my chances are here?

(P.S - I posted this to another LJ question/advice community last night and all I got back was a bunch of sarcasm. I know you guys aren't psychic, but I'm getting nervous and I just want people's thoughts/guesses)

I already plan to make him a steak dinner for tonight but what else can I do for him that would be nice without having a car or money? Other than sex...he's already getting that :)

I would like to pick up a book on patient's rights. Specifically, I want it to address psychiatric patient rights, including involuntary commitment. I need it to be for lay people, not lawyers (which seems to be mostly what Amazon has).

Does anyone know of a good title on this subject? Where can I get it? Thanks.

What story do you find yourself repeating over and over again? Either because someone says, "Hey, tell Bob about that time...." or because it comes up in conversation ("what happened to your arm?")

do cigarettes make you have to poop?

I can go hours without having to poop, or even thinking about it at all.. but it seems like the very second I light a cigarette, THERE IT IS. every time, without fail. it happens to my husband, too.

does this happen to you, or are we just weirdos with nicotine-activated bowels?

There was a story on the news last night about a woman that was laid off in October. She's on food stamps currently.

Somehow it was discovered that she owns a $300,000 house, drives a fairly new mercedes and has $80,000 in the bank in her savings.

Some folks are flipping out saying she's abusing the system and can obviously afford to buy her own food at this point.

Others are saying that since food stamp need is determined by current income and she doesn't have any that she's completely entitled to the assistance.

What side do you take, TQC?

ETA - Here are a couple of short links about it:

Have you ever had to order shoes because your feet size was so out of range the store doesn't stock that size?

You just bought a new car and you're happy and proud of it. It's beautiful. You pick your best friend up, and within 10 seconds, he/she throws up over the dashboard. Turns out, your friend is allergic to 'new car smell'. The vomit leaks into the air vent, and the smell of it saturates the car (he/she had fish for lunch). It's gross and you have to drive with the windows open. Your friend is sorry and offers to make it up to you. What would you demand as compensation?

Nothing. These things happen. It's unfortuante but I don't hold this against my friend

You've been dating your SO for over a year,and while the sex is fine, it's getting a little predictable. Then, one day, your SO brings home a wig and asks you to wear it the next time you have sex, to spice things up. You do, and your SO bangs you passionately. It's like the first time you guys did it. You got at it 3 times that night and it's like your SO can't get enough. After you've finished using the bathroom afterwards, you look in the mirror, and something dawns on you. The wig looks just like your best friend's hair. The color, the cut. It's a perfect match. You think about how your SO has been acting when you were wearing the wig and you suspect that he/she has a big thing for your friend. What do you do?

Nothing. The sex is great again. I don't rock the boat

Hi guys-

last night I got a small splinter in the heel of my foot. It hurts to put full weight on that foot now. I tried to get it out but couldn't- then I went to sleep. I've forgotten a few times today (getting out of bed right after waking up, etc) and stepped on it and it hurts like a bitch and also has driven the tiny splinter further into my foot.

Which class sounds worse: Anatomy & Physiology or General Biology?
Note: I suck at science.

General Biology Class Description: An introductory course in Biology with main emphasis on cell structure and function. Topics include gene structure and inheritance, study of plants and fungi, evolution, and ecology. Extensive discussion of concerns facing humanity today including quality of nutrition, environmental pollution, genetic engineering, inheritable diseases, and birth defects. This course must be taken in conjunction with BIO 121. Placement at ENG 101 level strongly advised.

Anatomy & Physiolgy Class Description: An Integrated study of the structure and function of the human body including atoms, molecules, cells, tissues, and organs. The skeletal, muscular, nervous, and sensory are studied Laboratory experience is correlated with classroom lecture. This course must be taken in conjunction with BIO 141. Placement at ENG 101 level strongly advised.

Scenarios

So let's say you have Job A. Now, you like Job A and your co-workers, but the salary is not what you had in mind. You've been at Job A for a year. Let's say Job B comes along. Job B is offered to you. A 50% salary increase, excellent benefits, and a shorter commute. But they want you to start this Monday. If you can't start then, they will offer it to someone else. Problem is, it's usually customary to give two weeks notice when quitting Job A. What's the best way to go about telling Job A you're leaving essentially tomorrow?

Let's say you're out with some friends at a bar. You're a bit tipsy, but not drunk. Another friend is a bit tipsy, but not drunk. You hook up. You two go home together, sleep together. The next day, this friend asks for a relationship. You say no, because you just ended a relationship a month ago, but would be open to casual dating for now. This friend screams that they trusted you by sleeping with you, that they feel like they were used. They say things like "Sex means we should be in a relationship." Is this friend crazy, or are you an asshole?

Ongoing job drama...

To recap: Fired from office job 2 weeks ago. Last week I found out check bounced (but got it cleared up)

Yesterday I accepted a part-time bookkeeping job for a construction company. It's 2 days a week starting out, $10/hr.

I also scored a job at Wal-Mart, part-time, $7.95/hr.

However....yesterday afternoon old boss calls and sets up a meeting with me, him, and TS (associate attorney). He wants to offer me my job back, part-time. When I left I was making $8.50/hr.

So...what should I do? I've got 3 part-time jobs, but can only handle 2.

I'm definitely not giving up the bookkeeping gig.
ETA: The 2nd job would only be worked until I go full-time with the bookkeeping job.

Would you work at Wal-Mart or the job that fucked you twice in less than 2 weeks? TS is prepared to do what she has to in order to bring me back (including paying me in cash). I can probably score a raise from it...but at the same time I want to punch my other ex-boss in the face.

Have you ever read Prospero's Daughter? (Adaptation of The Tempest set in a leper colony island near Trinidad, in the 1960s.) If so, what did you think?

Do you ever feel beaten on the head by civil rights blather? Specifically, "OMG never forget that there were slaves in this country and we whiteys should all feel reeeeeally guilty! SLAVERY IS SO BAD, RIGHT??? Also, we liberal-arts people have a duty to pound this knowledge into your heads! Let's see how many books we can connect back to ENSLAVEMENT OF THE NOBLE SAVAGE BY THE MEAN OLD EUROPEANS!!!!!!"

If that question was too slanted for you... how do you feel about emphasizing the issue so heavily in a liberal-arts education?

Don't get me wrong, I know it's important... but it's unnecessary to have to go through the same thing in all my lit and history classes. I kind of get the point by now. If they were saying anything different, I might change my mind, but they're all equally inept at bringing anything fresh into the discussion.

Oh hai it's me again

This is an odd question but- do you think doctors/therapist type people have the right to decline a appointment cancelation?

Basically, I called my therapist yesterday afternoon and canceled our appointment for tonight (so more than 24 hours notice.) She then called me and left me a message about an hour ago (our appointment is at 7:30) saying that she feels like it's extremely important that we talk (for tl;dr reasons, I don't disagree there is shit to discuss) and that's it's "critical" that I be there. She then goes on to say that she expects me there, and would I please call her if I wish to cancel.

Now, my take on this is that if I do call right now and cancel, it will be like I was only canceling 2 hours before the appointment, in which case she'd be within her rights to charge for the appointment. I haven't spoken to her yet but I'm wondering if I'm completely wrong in thinking that, should I in fact keep the cancellation, she shouldn't charge me.

Someone stole my brother's debit card information and spent most of what he had in savings on Ticketmaster tickets (he's only 20 and works at Mammoth Mountain Resort during the ski/snowboard season because he loves it but only makes 10 dollars an hour). Wells Fargo (surprise) isn't reimbursing him unless he proves to them that it's a crime, meaning he has to file a claim with the local sheriffs. This is after he reported his card as stolen AND THEY DIDN'T FREEZE THE ACCOUNT.
Is there ANYTHING I can do to cheer him up? I feel really badly :(

my friend is trying to remember a test she took online where it gives you a group of colors and you pick your favorite. As the test goes on it will give you fewer and fewer colors but it's harder because they are your favorites. At the end it tells you about your personality. Does anybody know what test this is?

My husband said he'd clean the cat boxes before he went to work today, so I took my son to the inlaws and then went to MY job. I just got home and husband did NOT clean the cat boxes, so the cats pooped and peed all over the house.

I should rub my husband's face in it when he gets home, y/y?

Sooo, my boyfriend got pissed at me online today and smashed his keyboard. Yeah, he broke it. He can't turn it off caps, and his G button no longer writes Gs.

Anyone have a clue how to fix it?

Am I the only person who really dislikes typing in Microsoft Word?

I prefer to write in Notepad or something and then just copy and paste into a Word Document when I'm finished. Mostly because I feel that I pay too much attention to length and amount of pages I wrote, when I'm typing in Word rather than focusing on content.

I had a very successful first date last night. He was really really blatantly flirty with me and I responded well(the only thing is I was tipsy and nervous, and he was showing all he signs he wanted to kiss and I sort of ignored them all). I really feel like he's going to call me within the next three days, but if he doesn't, when is it appropriate for the lady to take action and call the man after a first date?

A [drinking] glass just broke in my mouth while I was drinking. This is dangerous, Y/N?

It's not like I even had my teeth on it or anything, just my lips. I'm guessing it already had a break or something that wasn't visible yet and maybe pressing it against the fridge thing to get the water in, made it about to crack. Needless to say, my lip is now bleeding.

In the 'intimate scene' in Watchmen, involving Laurie and John (Dr Manhattan) is it true that as he leaves the bedroom he is...to put it one way...standing to attention?
I didn't notice in the film but some people say this is true!

Ladies of TQC, are any of you taking or have you taken Lybrel for birth control? What has your experience with it been?

For everyone else:

What excuses do you use when you get an injury (cuts and bruises included) doing something stupid or in some way you'd feel stupid explaining? (For example, I have a decent size gash on my hand from a cat bite. I know I'm going to be asked about it tomorrow, and feel kind of stupid saying 'my cat ate my hand'.)

Do you like hot sauce? Have you ever made your own? Care to share your recipe or technique?

What's the weirdest gift you ever given or received?

Today i gave my friend a glass head, cookies, and an enema kit for his birthday. He's... kind of an odd guy.

Is it inappropriate for me to laugh when my SO sends me over aim, "i dont want to loose you"?

Also, what is the last frustration you've had today? Please, complain to me! I'd love to hear other people's problems.

I am trying to remember the name of a movie! It's a kid's movie, cartoon, and it takes place in India. It really reminds me of The Emperor's New Groove and that Eldorado movie. All I remember are these two scenes: 1) A girl is in the tub with a back scratcher and is possibly being spied on? 2) They're on roofs and the big gold ball things on top of the roofs are falling and they're trying to catch them. Idk! Do you guys remember?!
