I'll take a side of "New Job", please.

So guys... i need a new job, asap. i've been thinking about "work at home" jobs, but i'm wary of them, and rightfully so; most of them are scams. i know that legit ones exist, it's just so hard to find one.

Here's one though, that i'm not sure about. What do yall think?

Have any of you ever tried a "work from home" job? Opinions?

side note: A) not sure if it's against rules to post this link, and if so, sorry 'bout that and B) i in no way, shape, or form work for this company / am trying to spam the community. i just want to know what yall think.

Edit: got rid of the link, so it's not spammin' the community. So is there something else out there that yall recommend for at home work then?

TQC, I am reading creepypasta. I thought I was immune to such foolishness, but I'm creeped out and might not sleep tonight, lol.

A guy I look up to just sent me this quote "In the long run, men only hit what they aim at. Therefore, though you should fail immediately, you had better aim at something high" - but to be honest TQC, I haven't slept in days and my brain is currently out of service.

Can anyone break it down for me?

Is French Toast a sweet or savoury food for you? How do you like it?

It's a savoury for me, we always have it with tomato sauce (the condiment, not pasta sauce). I've tried it with syrup and sugar but that's weird.

Troubleshooting ADSL2+...

I switched ISPs last week but they didn't give me any installation instructions. I basically winged it with what I knew to change of my settings. I changed the modem settings, but I wasn't really sure of what I was up to with the windows connection part of it.

The result is that everything works for me during the day, except that when I restart my PC every morning I have to go into the modem settings page and keep renewing the settings. They're all already saved there and the green light indicator is on, but my web pages don't load unless I do that step. Can anyone help me resolve this? It would save me spending some time on hold. Thanks :)

Have you ever been reading an entry on your friends page or just a random blog where someone was trying build up suspense by drawing out the story and it was just annoying and you wanted to yell "FUCKING GET TO THE POINT ALREADY"? And then when you get to the end and read the end of the story you were like WHY THE FUCK DIDN'T YOU JUST WRITE THAT INSTEAD OF ADDING TWO PARAGRAPHS MORE THAN YOU NEEDED TO IT? Does that sort of thing irritate you?

Okay, I am getting a tattoo sometime soon. A friend of mine is training to be a tattoo artist, so I'm free meat (I will buy her a really nice dinner if she refuses to take money, though) - I'm trying to decide what I want. TQCers, will you vote for what I should get?

1. This purple thing on the album cover below:

on my right wrist. The Dirtbombs are my favorite band EVERRRRR, and nobody will know what the hell it is unless they know who the band is. I might get the band's name in impact font below it, but IDK, probably not.

2. The oranges/orange blossom design from the old school Florida license plates to remind me of FL on my ankle.

3. The lyrics "Won't somebody open the world up and let me out?" on my right shoulder blade.

4. A pinup girl of some sort to start out the Sailor Jerry style tattoos I'll be getting in the future from someone else (she will NOT do my chest piece, she's afraid of fucking it up).

For anyone who wears glasses:

I'm new to this whole question-posting malarkey, so hellooo. My query: do you find that glasses without adjustable nose pads/nose pads at all hurt the bridge of your nose or dig in too much? I'm trying to figure out if it's just a design problem that I can't get used to (because it's the first pair in my life that hasn't had them), or because of the weird shape of my nose, which has a slight, slight bump? It's driving me nuts, so I'm thinking of just taking them back. The frames aren't even that heavy - they're light plastic.

I would post photos for illustration/clarification, but the cat chewed through my camera-to-laptop data cable.

What current trends do you feel out of touch with?
Do you think you'll ever cave?

I do not use Twitter, and I'm not a big fan of the Wii. My own mother has a wii. When Myspace first came out, I was very much against it out of an lj-loyalty, but I ended up making one to be able to look at other peoples'. However, I really have no interest in Twitter and hope to remain that way.

What do you do when you have a day almost completely to yourself?

I work/have school every single day, but only 1 class and no work on Wednesdays. So far today I've cleaned, and I am hopefully going to start some homework now.

Which one are you?

Monday's child is fair of face. You're purty. You don't have many other notable layers beyond your looks though
Tuesday's child is full of grace. Dextrous person who may or may not be a cannibal. Where is your neighbor Grace anyway?
Wednesday's child is full of woe. Goth or emo. Lot of The Cure and the occasional cutting
Thursday's child has far to go. Let's face it: you're not even trying to reach your goals
Friday's child is loving and giving. Pleasant doormat
Saturday's child works hard for a living. Workaholic
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day is bonny and blithe and good and gay. You're a proud gay person

I missed you, TQC.

My question to you is:

Not that you guys aren't a barrel of fun...but does anyone know of any other LJ communities where people can ask questions/need advice and get actual serious answers from people who are there to give advice/help people?

This place is good for a laugh and entertainment when I'm bored, but I'm curious to find some place else more serious and less snarky.

No offense ;)

What hurts right now?

I have a huge kink in my neck/shoulder, and I can barely turn my head to the left without wanting to die. It hurts so bad. :( Something needs to crack but I can't figure out where, and I can't twist/turn/move to figure out where. ARGH

What's on today's agenda?

I'm getting my GA driver's license today, hooray! I also need to go to the DMV to figure out how to get my uncle's car from PA to GA without tags (he took the tags off already/surrendered them to the DMV, and I obv can't get GA tags for it until I register it... which I can't do until I get down here with the car...). And then I need to clean the kitchen, do homework, clean my room and pack for this weekend.

I need your advice!
I've been looking for a job for a few months. I have an interview for running extremely overpriced childrens' parties. However, this may end up being a strictly weekend deal. I can only see the guy that I'm dating on the weekends.

Should I turn down this job and look for something during the week?
Or should I just take it and try to squeeze in a date on one of my weekend days?

To those of you who are full-time students: do you work during the school year? How many hours per week?

my main squeeze's birthday is approaching...

he is:
-environmentaly friendly

and likes:
-to snowboard
-to simply be outside
-to play drums/bass
-to make good food
-to work on veggie garden
-to listen to music
-practice "green" morals
-also smoke the green...haha
-useful homemade things

i'd like to make him somthing to help in the kitchen or backyard, perhaps buy something related to his other interests. my friends and i are already planning on baking a badass cake.

PLUS he's turning 21. which doesn't happen too often.

Are you going to be celebrating the holidays of Christianity?

Why has there been 2,000 years of Christianity reading the New Testament but continuing to do exactly what's said in Mark 7:8?

For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things you do.

You want to get your nails done. There are two salons that cost the same and are relatively close to each other. Where will you go?

Best Nails - There is a sign in the window saying that they were voted "#1" but it doesn't cite a source or anything pertaining to the poll.
Nice Nails - They have a few small cards thanking them for their customer service but nothing raving about what a great job they did.

What is your favorite decade for music?
I love pretty much everything, but probably the 90's. It's what I grew up with.

a bit tl;dr

my best friend is dating another close friend of ours. she is a whirlwind of chaos and upset, and i am worried that this will end badly, and said so. he thinks i am just being a jealous girl, and harsh words were exchanged during our last phone conversation.
i want him to know that i am just trying to look out for him, but after that convo i don't think he'll be inclined to listen to me.

how do i apologize/make this okay?

edit for clarification:
he's not answering the phone/replying to IM. i'm trying to figure out if i should just leave a message or email or what?

I'm graduating on May 24th. I was thinking about possibly doing a dinner at a family style restaurant (ie. order a couple of the packaged deal meals). I figured this may be more cost effective for everyone involved. Here's the question: am I going to be expected to pay for all of it? No one else in my family can afford to and the other people who would be coming are friends and coworkers.

Up until at least 2004 there was a website where unsigned/independent (and maybe not?) artists could host their music with a bio (very similar to the music portion of myspace today), and for free the public could download these songs. You could also just listen to clips or sometimes full songs, without downloading.

This site had been around forever. 1994 I think?

I also think the website was an initialism, like imdb.com or ohhla.com

Anyone know what I'm talking about?

This place may still be around, I just haven't been there for suresies since 2004. PureVolume was founded in 2004.

I'm starting a garden this year, and I made my garden larger than what is strictly necessary for what I plan on growing. (It didn't seem too big until I actually thought about it. I'm not very good at thinking.)

I plan on growing (or at least trying to grow) the following:

What are your suggestions on other (legal) things I should grow?

Dear TQC,

Every evening, from around 4-10 PM, my neighbor downstairs plays very loud music. Very, very loud. So loud, that my keys on my keyboard rattle, and stuff on my walls shake, I shit you not. I've already complained once to the office, and all they said was 'Uuugh, that guy again'. I've asked him once, and he turns it down for all of 5 minutes, before blaring 'Red Red Wine' again for the 9th time in one evening.

I want to call the cops, but after asking me if I lived alone (I said no, but I've yet to have a guy over to reinforce this lie), he told me to never call the cops on him due to his loud music. No, really, he said that. He scares me, but this is a) giving me a headache, b) affecting my sleep/studying.

Any suggestions at all? I'm at a loss.

Since you all are saying call the cops anyways, another question. Will I have to ID him, and will he see me? When I was in Scotland, I had to ID a guy who tried to break in our apartment. Not sure I'd want a guy who lives below me knowing I ratted him out.

Terrible people live behind us!  They have a beautiful, sweet dog that they keep locked up in a small space literally 24/7.  They feed it, and that's it.  We constantly see the women taking walks by herself.  The family is always out playing in the backyard while the dog watches longingly from behind the fence of the enclosure.  They could AT LEAST give it access to the whole backyard. 

We called someone about it, and they said they couldn't do anything.  Sometimes when the family is outside, I bring all my dogs outside and play with them, hoping to influence their son or something, but it doesn't work.

Why do parents let their children roll around on the floors of bathrooms and stores?

I was in a fitting room in Macy's today and the girl in the stall next to me had her little brother (?!) with her. He was rolling around on the floor just staring at me and her while she changed. I told the Mom standing outside the stall to make him stop looking at me before I started to change. Would you care if a little kid was staring at you? I've had this happen in bathrooms before; it's not acceptable behavior, is it? Also, I know for a fact that people have shit and pissed in those fitting rooms. It's not really the same as a kid rolling around in dirt.
