What is the best place to go online-shopping for bizarre/exotic/hard-to-get/fancy/foreign/super-localized American food products?

Like weird salts and sugars and rices and spices and stuff. has a bunch of stuff but their site confuses me and kind of turns me off of food.

What have you tried to make scars less visible? Did it work? How well?

I have some bad scratch scars on my legs. They aren't raised bumps, more like pink lines. I was hoping they'd fade and be less noticable, but they don't seem to change. I want to be able to wear shorts without funny looks and questions:(.

It's 2:18am here. I just started writing a five page paper a little less than 20 minutes ago.

I work with my ex-boyfriend. We're on good terms. The other night I got some weird texts from a guy who claimed to be him asking for a booty call. I later figured out it wasn't him, and I sent my ex a facebook message kind of saying, "isn't this messed up? Someone pretended to be you to get a booty call". He never responded to it, and today when I saw him at work, he was completely cold towards me and wouldn't look at me.

Normally we joke around every night, or at least say hi, so this is strange.

My friend said that he probably thought i was trying to stir up drama-- which isn't true in the least bit. I kind of wanted to send him a facebook message like, "what's going on?" but my friend said not to, that that would probably just aggravate the situation.

What should I do? Especially at work.

eta: I know it wasn't my ex, because the person later called me. Also, the text messages got deleted because my phone delete messages when it dies, so I can't show them to him.

My dog is really sick and I am taking shifts at the vet with my mother. I just emailed my professors quickly to say that I may not be in class (most likely will not, but if he's out in a few hours then I can go), but I may have rambled on too long.
Was this appropriate to send?

"I may not be in class today. I am at the vet with my dog because he is vomitting blood. I will be attempting to get out of here as soon as possible, they're running x-rays now to see if anything is blocked, so I'm not sure how long it will take and what we need to do. I apologize in advance if I am out.
Thank you- over_thefreeway"

ETA: I sent it at 4:15 AM this morning, so I was not in the most literate of moods, hence the spelling of vomiting. None of them are English profs, so it doesn't really matter, lol

If a landlord writes something to the effect of "Tenant cannot take the landlord to court for any reason" in a lease (which I signed), then changes things on their end... is it actually illegal for me to take them to court? It doesn't seem like it could be legal to say that, but I dunno? I know it was dumb to sign it, but I loved the apartment and have been living here 2 years problem free.. until now.

Oh, and the guy who lives next door to me listens to porn very very loudly all the time. The walls are paper thin and it's creepy (because he moans along and talks to the porn). I know it's not a real person because he rewinds to his favorite parts and listens over and over. I can't have people over in my living room without them hearing his porn. It's like it's in the room with us!

Teal deer: (just the back-story)

The rent I paid included parking and internet. They overpacked the lot and gave away all the guest passes we were told we could use (people didn't give them back, and the landlord didn't bother tracking them down) so my handicapped mother is unable to park in my lot and it's hard to find a space in my neighborhood.

When I first moved in, we could have as many guests as we wanted park without a pass. Now they tow if you don't have a pass. I live in crime-ridden area, and one of the reasons I moved to this apartment is because, as a theatre major, I come home late at night. As a young single woman, is is *not* safe for me to be walking 6 blocks alone at 12 AM to my apartment. For 2 years, I've been able to park in the apartment lot, so this wasn't an issue. Now it is.

Internet was also included. But they just sent around a letter saying our service would be stopped, and "any service we received was merely an accomodation". THEY were the ones advertising "free internet" and "free parking" in their ads.

My rent is really high, but it made sense when 'net and parking were included. (Parking goes for $200-400/mo here, high speed net is $40-60).

Am I stuck? Can I ask for them to lower my rent or at least give me a guest pass for my mom? I'm looking at other apartments, but I haven't found anything yet. :-(

i got these questions to answer for homework in my dance class at school. we have to do it every night for ten days. Just curious about what your answers would be?

What have you done to honour yourself today?
What have you done to honour someone else today?
How have you honoured your body today?
How have you honoured your mind today?

or answer them for yesterday, since todays not over

Not so hypothetical question

You go to a store to pick up a few things. One of the items is an electronic something that's in a protective plastic case that the cashier has to remove. Cashier doesn't have that tool, so she leaves to take care of it somewhere else.

When cashier returns with the item, she deactivates it for security purposes and drops it in the bag. You pay, and go on your merry way.

You get home and realize that you were never charged for that item.

Do you say, "Yay! Freebie!!"
Or, do you go back and pay for it?

Would it matter how much the item was? What's your limit for going back?

This happened to me yesterday. I bought a movie and the lady didn't scan it when I checked out. I realized it when I got home and looked at the receipt. I went back and paid for it. It would have eaten at me if I didn't.

I'm going to a "Career Forum" this week. it's not a job fair, it's basically people from this company talking about how to get a career with this specific company.

Has anyone been to anything like this before? Any advice? It's basically networking, right? Can you straight out ask if they are or will be hiring for the specific position you are looking for?

Vending machines.

If there's more than one way to get the same item in a vending machine (e.g., pressing B3, B4, and B5 would all give you chocolate milk), do you make a conscious decision to choose one over the others?

(N.B. I chose B4.)
phychological validation


I made the mistake of buying a book on raising chickens in your backyard as an impulse buy (to be fair, raising chickens has always been something I've wanted to do, and the book stood out to me because it was about something I'd been idly thinking of doing in a "yeah, someday I'll do that" sort of way).

Then I stumbled upon and looked at pretty pictures of Plymoth Rocks and Wyandottes and read about the Eglu, a small, portable coop that can hold a pair of hens and is pretty damn affordable and easy compared to a lot of the alternatives.

Now, I'm pining for a couple of banty hens to lay me eggs every morning and be cute and charming. :( The problem is, I'm currently living with my mother and have plans to move into an apartment with my boyfriend in June, so unless I talk my mom into keeping the birds (which I am probably going to try to do anyway, I'll just tell her about how their poop makes excellent fertilizer for the garden and how you can move the Eglo around the yard to keep them from tearing up your lawn and how they eat bugs and how homegrown eggs are better for you and how I'll pay for everything and even when I move out I'll come back to take care of them and and oh please please please I want chickens!), chickens are a distant possibility to save for when I have a house and a backyard of my own.

Do you think my cunning plan of begging will work?

Have you ever kept chickens? Got any pointers to share? Favorite breed? Anything like that?

ETA: Ok, so on reading back what I wrote, I realize asking my mom to care for chickens that I want is a shitty thing to do. Consider me properly admonished, and rest assured I will wait till I have a backyard of my own to raise any chickens. I also see that I came off a bit like a space cadet about it, but I really am serious about wanting to have chickens one day, and when I do it won't be a spur of the moment thing and I want to take the best care of them possible. Sorry for the goofy post, I got excited. :)

I caught the crabs again.

I just went to schedule an appointment for the doctor and he's booked until April. However, he has another office - further from me - where I can see him at the end of this week.

I tried shaving them off my pubes and then plucking them out by hand which seemed like it was a success, except that I can still feel them even if I seemingly plucked all of the ones that were visible. Damn microscopic crabs. =(

What should I be doing until the end of this week to insure that I'm as comfortable as possible? Tons of people want to make out with me, and it's been so awkward pushing their hands as far away from my nether regions as possible. It's going to be even more awkward knowing that my nether regions are now prickly and shaved and they're reaching for them expecting a full bush. But my comfort is more important to me than the comfort of others, so helppppp

Let's say you have a medical problem you think is incurable. Nothing deadly, just inconvenient and painful. A doctor says he can fix you and he does, and you're very happy about it and the two of you are fairly friendly and everything.

Later you find out that he doesn't give a flying shit about you and only cured you to make himself look good and get more business. He didn't outright say this but from his actions and a few things he's said in the past, it's pretty clear.

Would you be a little hurt? Or would you not care much, since you got your cure? And why?

Would it change your answer if you worked for the doctor and, job-wise, he screwed you over pretty badly and was very cold to you all of a sudden?

You're about to be operated on for something minor but invasive, like an appendix or something. You're on the operating table, being anesthesized, and you're fading off. You can hear one doctor talk to the other doctor. They don't think you can hear them. What would be the WORST thing to hear as you're losing consciousness?

"Are you sure the appendix is on the right? I remember it being on the left. Ok, let's flip a coin to decide where we cut"
"My...God...she looks just like Edith. I miss her so much, Stan. So much. Say, would you mind terribly if I asked you to step outside for 5 so I can spend some quality alone time with her? She won't know what happened when she wakes up"
"My...God...she looks just like Edith. THAT BITCH! Took me for everything I had! Look, Stan, I'm a professional. I'm not going to take it out on the patient just cause she looks like....ARRGH!"
"Fuck, Stan. We can't both be drunk. Who's gonna cut the patient open?"
"I'm gonna lose the house unless I can come up with 50k. Hey, what if we just take this patient's liver and sell it on the black market and split it 50/50. We can say the patient died through the procedure and we'll be in the clear. Wanna?"
"Make sure to remind me not to sew the scalpel up inside the patient this time. After the last 4 surgeries, I'm down to my last knife"
"Hehe. Is the acid kicking in? Mines is. The patient looks like really good apple pie and I have the knife. Isn't that trippy?"
"Georgia, I'm sorry I went back to the wife. That's no reason to take it out on the patient. Malpractice suit? Oh, really mature for an anesthisologist"
"The Parkinson's is back, Stan. My hand just can't stop shaking. I think I can still do the operation, but best get the extra-thick gauze ready just in case"
"Don't feel bad, Stan. It's just bad luck your last 8 patients died on the operating table. Bad luck. I have a really good feeling about this one though"
"This one's kind of cute. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Ok, get the camera"
"What do you mean there's no plasma? How can the hospital be out? Well, crap, now what? Hmm. I think maybe we can pull off this operation anyway if we're fast enough. There shouldn't be too much bleeding"
"Is this the one who loses the left leg or the appendix removal? This chart isn't telling me anything. Maybe we're supposed to remove the leg and the appendix"
"I got such a hangover. If I even smell blood, I'm probably gonna puke, Stan. Just FYI. Make sure I don't ralph in the incision"
"I get the appendix and the liver mixed up. The appendix is the big one, yes? I thought so. Wouldn't we look bad if we accidentally removed that tiny liver"

Mine is a bright one-level yellow house in the south of France about 40 mins from the coast, with a view of the hills.  White curtains, fresh flowers everywhere, broken-in comfy looking furniture. An entire room would be devoted to books (floor to ceiling bookcases, comfy couches, fireplace). Walking distance to a smallish village with an outstanding bakery.

edit: Ok, my real dream house would also include a water slide that goes straight from a pool on my roof to a lagoon down below.  But I feel that might spoil the aesthetics :(

How important is/was your professor for your successful completion of a course/class? Could you motivate yourself no matter what or did you depend on interesting professors? Do you think people need professors to push them?

I ask this because a friend and I discussed this this morning at 6:50, waiting for our first morning lecture. She said that she went to her clases because she had to and because it would help her to successfully complete her course. She added that her professor was an absolutely neutral factor in her education. I said I went to my lectures because I really wanted to, because I wanted to learn something new and actually have fun. Then my second reason was to help me pass the course. I greatly depend on my professors. Is it wrong and should I reevaluate my movites?

I admit I may be dependant on my surroundings far too much to keep me going. I told my friend that if I thought my lectures were boring, I would feel horrible all day and could never, ever get up at 4:50 as I have to every day just for the sole purpose of going somewhere o pass my classes. I felt miserable all the time in high school because my professors were not motivational. they were actually tiring.

It can also be bad when I have a really boring professor. I can't make myself study no matter what.

What do you think of the importance of professors in general and my case specifically? How was it for you?

EDIT FOR ~*TRU FACTZ: he bought the tickets after he told me the dates i was coming were okay. i can't buy a ticket to the show because it's sold out. this is basically one of three weeks out of the entire year that we can visit each other due to scheduling, so it's not like i get to see him often / can go whenever i want to.

What old shows do you love to still watch repeatedly on TV? (By old, I mean any show that no longer has new episodes.)

What movie(s) could you watch over and over again and never get sick of them?

What is your name on Twitter?

while looking for good lotions for my dry hands on google, I got a bunch of stuff about sleeping with white cotton gloves on so that your lotion can sink into your skin more/better. Is it just me or does that seem completely bogus? I mean why isn't it just as good to just put the lotion on and wait until it's good and soaked in before you touch stuff/go to bed?

The crus or the crura is the name for the "section of the leg between the knee and foot". Is there a name for the section of the leg between the knee and the pelvis? I'm already aware of "thigh". :>

Edit: I'm looking for words that would apply to humans. To be more specific, I'm looking for a term that would be the same as intercrural, but, y'know, between the thighs.

Today I went to the doctor's after being sick for...a few too many days. I found out I have strep and an ear infection. I also have a midterm tomorrow at 1. I really just want to be lazy until tomorrow morning, but I feel like I should study tonight. So, watch TV for the next hour and go to bed or study for an hour and go to bed?

Why do my cats like playing inside of paper grocery bags?

What makes your bad days better?
I moved closer to home after living 6 hours away for 2 1/2 years, so my mom was close enough to do the whole "taking care of her sick daughter" thing. She's a pretty amazing lady.

Do any of you get anxiety attacks?
I've always read that they came with this sense of impending doom or a feeling that you're going to die.
Does anyone have panic attacks that are nothing like that?
Will you describe what happens?

Will you tell me about the last time you accidentally injured yourself?

This morning, I stumbled out of bed to turn off my alarm, and for some reason, there was a razor on the floor,  I stepped on it, the protector came off the razor, and I sliced the end of my toe open.  D:   Not the best way to start off the day.

Does it irk anyone else how on the intro to Jon & Kate Plus 8 Kate says, "It may be a crazy life, but it's ARE life" (pronunciation-wise, at least) instead of OUR life? I mean, I know she's saying "our" but how much it sounds like "are" really gets to me, even though it's such a silly little thing! Haha.

Having lost my Blackberry, should I take this as a sign and just terminate my expensive service, and get a cheap pay-as-you-go phone instead? Judging by my normal usage, I'd end up paying about....$15 a month that way.

I don't have any furniture other than a bed and desk, but I'm moving into a much bigger place next week. What's the most important piece of furniture I should buy right away?

Are there any inconsequential life decisions you can't be bothered to make yourself? Would you like TQC to make them for you?

TQC, will you tell me of your pawn shop experiences? Good, bad, hilarious, anything.

Stories you have heard from others are fine too. I am very curious about pawn shops today for some reasons.
