What's it about (without ruining it!)?
When I'm on "night duty" with the baby I have to keep it quiet so I may as well get some reading done.
If no, then why?
I'm a closet lesbian. I... uh, like this girl in my class. I don't think she likes me back, though. We're best friends, so it's a little complicated. We hang out a lot, I really, really like her but I don't know how she'd react if I told her. PLUS, my father is really homophobic and if I came out as a lesbian he would kill me. He's like... a dictator in our house. :|
I've had a few close calls, too! One time when I slept over at her house I started... uh, masturbating a little while she was in the shower and I was almost caught. Plus, I took naked pictures of her while she was sleeping and the next morning she started flipping through my phone. Thankfully, she didn't find them.
I'm getting pretty fucked in the head with all of this shit... I don't know what to do? Should I just keep masturbating to her pictures, knowing nothing with ever happen? Or should I kill myself...? Because I really can't live without her. She's my only love.
Please... serious answers only. I'm crying here.

Do you think that escort services are a glamorous profession that typically makes people rich? Or would you instead tend to trust a veteran that the escort agency takes away enough in fees that you're making less than an average street prostitute?
I'm going to be getting some more and want ideas.
Also, would a t-shirt with a hologram of my kitty on it be awesome Y/N?
What do you think of those robot/speaker bunnies that connect to the computer/internet and let people talk to you? Are they worth it? This makes me think it would be cool to mount a live feed cam from kitty, if only he wouldn't mind it.

The little girl was in daycare at the time. The daycare provider needed to take care of some things, so she left her 13 year old son to listen out for the kids for a little bit while they napped. He woke the two year old girl in her sleep to molest and kill her.
The news story went on and on about how he couldn't be tried as an adult and he got a slap on the wrist for it. He's been in therapy and on some sort of probation, I believe. He's now in high school. No one, not even his teachers or peers know that he has killed another human being. Now the parents are trying to change that law.
But they never mention once if anything happened to the daycare provider, the boy's mother. Do you think she should have been held responsible in any way? Perhaps even if it were something as small as child endangerment or neglect?
And what of the boy? Do you think his punishment was too light? Or should he have been tried as an adult? Perhaps some "happy" medium? Is it safe to assume that a 13 year old damn well knows the difference between right and wrong?
Will you please tell me some GOOD work-related news that's going on with you or people you know? I need to know that not everyone is fucked right now. Please.

It's pouring rain outside, and I tried to take the dog out. She hates rain. We live at the top of a 6 story apartment complex, so to avoid the rain as much as possible I went down the covered stair area in the parking garage. On the way we ran into a (cute) boy with a dog and she absolutely went fucking apeshit barking and acting like she had fucking rabies. So embarrassing.. seriously it was awful. So we get to the bottom and I'm walking towards the grass and she just shits in the middle of the parking lot instead. Then ABSOLUTELY REFUSED to go out in the rain to piss. I seriously tried over 30 times to get her to stand out there and she wouldn't do a damn thing but whine.
She's just a dog, I can't yell at her, what does she know about anything. But I'm still extremely annoyed at her.

I rarely sell things on Ebay, but I had an extra set of Death Cab for Cutie tickets, so I decided to list them. I didn't think I'd get much because the seats aren't so great, but someone messaged me and offered a good amount if I'd sell them to him right away. Well, one person has bid, so I can't add a buy it now. So how exactly should I go about selling it?
Should I cancel the auction entirely, relist with a buy it now and let him pay that way?
Ask for payment through paypal and then cancel it once I receive it, skipping relisting it?
Can I cancel the person's bid, and then add a buy it now?

I had a full conversation with the ex (who I've been trying to ignore) because I put him in my phone under another friend's name. I also managed to tell him that I found someone who seems "perfect".
Is that a fml moment or actually really cool?
My friends think it's good, I'm just sort of pissed because I didn't want to tell him.
what is this meme? where did it come from? what is it called?
But now there is other drama. I am booked for a shoot with a HUGE, well-known magazine where they want me to look the part of a sexy drugged out rocker this weekend. It's a huge spread. But how will I pull my pants low to show my pubes? I shaved them off days ago.
They've begun to grow back moderately. I mean, I can pull at them with the tips of my fingers if I try. But I'm freaked. My pubes obviously have that whole "I shaved them" look.
2 days until the big day!
Will my pubes be making a comeback in time for my big spread?

I'm "skipping" work today because I feel like utter crap (I called hours before my shift starts, but because I have no sick days yet it'll still affect my attendance). I also took Sunday and Monday night off because of shitty roads. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being "not terrible", 10 being "SOMEONE FIRE HER ASS") how much of a shitty employee am I?

So I am right now in the hospital watching my Dad die of cancer. We only found out a month ago that he had it and now he only has a few days left...at best.
He has been asking for lots of his favorite Polish dishes and so we have all been pitching in and cooking for him. We have been able to fill all of his requests except one and he's asking for this one thing more and more over the last few days. I am in a desperate search for Fresh Bing Cherries. We are in NC and they are just not in season and we have been unable to find any anywhere.
I thought I might could find something like a flower delivery type place might also do fruit baskets but so far I am having no luck.
Is there any chance some one here in a warmer climate might know of a place I could order some from? I'm willing to pay shipping and such. I know this is an odd question for here but I'm doing my best to grant my Dad this request.

The lab is about the Implicit Association Test.

What does this all mean??
any help GREATLY appreciated!!!
"Sexting" is the practice of underage women taking nude photographs of themselves and texting it to friends, although the term has been used to describe times were text messages weren't the medium of making the photos more available, but something like a private myspace account was.
Do you think underage women should be charged with either creation, possession or distribution of child pornography for "sexting"? (or all of the above?)
Do you think the recipients should be charged with possession of child pornography?
Does it matter if they were an active participant -- such as accessing a folder on myspace that contained nudes -- or an inactive participant -- such as receiving a text message? What if the creator of the photos misrepresents their age?

Disclaimer: I'm not a parent and don't intend to be one anytime soon, but this is something I think about from time to time.
When/if I have kids I intend to be frank and honest with them when it's appropriate and called for. An issue that always has me conflicted is Santa Claus. It seems wrong to propagate such a stupid lie, especially when they're obviously going to learn the truth at some point, and in a worst-case-scenario that could end up being traumatic. I know personally, when I realized Santa/Tooth Fairy/Easter Bunny weren't real, I immediately trusted my mom less, and I found out in a pretty reasonable way.
On the other hand, believing in Santa is kind of a normal part of growing up. Plus, I wouldn't want to be the mom whose kid went to school and told everyone they were stupid for believing in Santa (even if you told them not to tell anyone, kids talk and that's that.)
So... what are your thoughts on this? Should kids be allowed to believe in Santa, or are they better off understanding that their parents worked hard to buy them those presents?
Did anybody here grow up being told the truth about Santa? How did that work out for you and your family? Did you disillusion any other kids?
If you grew up believing in it, how did you find out about Santa Claus, and how did you take it?
(note: this article is kind of an interesting take on the whole question)
Do you expect happy (or mostly happy) endings in books and movies?
Are you disappointed when a book or movie doesn't have a happy ending?
(This question is brought to you by a discussion of French, Irish, and Russian literature on my F-List and the lack of common happy endings. I've also noticed -- completely unscientifically -- that movies here, in America, that don't have a happy neat ending tend not to do well in ticket sales, and I wonder if it's a cultural expectation.)

My Mum lives with me because she has mobility problems (she can't walk far and walks with a stick/cane) and memory issues. Over the past two years I have noticed that the memory problems are at their worst when she is depressed.
Which is all the time.
She doesn't eat unless I force her to. I'm not here all the time to do this and to be honest I'm fed up having to 'baby' her into eating. When she doesn't eat she complains she's no energy and doesn't feel well so she can't do anything. When I say that's down to her not eating she says she has been when I know she hasn't. She's very depressed, sleeps all day and does nothing but sit and listen to the radio while smoking herself to death. She won't go into the living room to watch tv, she has no friends, she's not trying to do anything to improve her situation.
I've taken her to the doctor and she's now on anti depressants. Also, she's on a waiting list for a daycare centre which will get her mingling with people and getting out and about for a bit.
But I don't know how to deal with this until she gets to daycare. I'm running out of patience and I don't know what I should do.
I hope this makes sense, I'm not too good at explaining myself at the best of times.
