For the brave and unashamed

What's a funny/awkward moment that happened to you during a sexual encounter?

I was visiting my long distance boyfriend 3 months ago, and we finally got free reign of the house. I was in the bathroom (not using the toilet, fyi) and he came in. We got into a heavy make out session, and  in what would have normally been a sexy manner, I pushed him against the shower door. Unfortunetly for us, the sliding door was OPEN and we both just managed to catch ourselves before falling in. Thankfully we were able to laugh it off :c)

Oh and HOW DO YOU SPELL UNFORTUNETLY. No matter what I do, it always looks wrong.

I'm making a video for two of my best friends, who are getting married this month. The video includes childhood pictures, family shots, pictures of the progress of their new house, fairly typical stuff.

I've noticed that if I brush my teeth in the morning before I eat anything my teeth will feel pretty clean all day, even if I eat and then don't brush afterwards. But if I don't brush in the morning, my teeth feel gross all day.

Is this true for you?

Where is my camera? I haven't taken it out since I last uploaded photos but it doesn't appear to be *anywhere* and I'm going out to Salem, MA today and wanted photos. Boo-urns.

If you don't care where my camera is, what is the most embarrassing outfit you've ever left the house in, and not meant to be a costume?

My SO's mother constantly hassles me about getting a job and not "cruising along"....I have a job, I have been supporting myself and her son for the last 4 months while he has been, er, "looking for a job"...so understandably this boils my blood a little.

Is there any way of saying something to her that will stop her bringing it up without going into detail about what I do?

What would you say to her?

If you have a washer & dryer *in* your dwelling, where are they located? Is there a closet or designated room for them?
Ours are in the kitchen, right next to the stove. Our kitchen is so small that the top of the washer doubles as a work surface when I'm cooking.

We had a name all picked out for our puppy. We were getting a male rottweiler, and we were naming him Hemi. Well, turns out, we dont get a choice of male anymore, and we have to get a female. Which is fine, because we are cheap, and now we get to pay half price. Anyways, I dont think you can name a female Hemi. I need help coming up with some names that we could name her.

By the way, my husband doesnt like "people" names. He giggles when he sees a dog with a person's name.

Right now, I have:

Any other ideas?

TEEL DEAR: What are some good 60s songs that have a farewell feel to them?
What are your favourite "oldies" songs?

I'm leaving a state position in an organization I'm part of tomorrow (my one year term is over) and I'm in charge of throwing the event where we have a dance and elect the next person to my position. I'm making a slide show of my year, and I'm looking for some good, 60s feel music to accompany it. Right now we have about 15 minutes worth of slide show, and the only song we have is Bay City Rollers' "Bye Bye Baby" as a definite at the end. We're considering The Beach Boys' "Wouldn't It Be Nice?" as well. TQC! What do you suggest?

PS, yes I know that Bye Bye Baby is from the 70s.

Yey, it's my birthday!

What did you do on your last birthday?

I kind of grew up with my parents making a big fuss of our birthdays, so a cake and some kind of present is a must. However, over the past few years, I discovered that some of my friends, my ex and my current bf don't celebrate/care about their birthdays all that much which I find odd at first(and then, I felt immature).

Do you or your family make a big deal out of your birthday?

Also, say you win a contest and the prize:any 5 things of your choice. What would you ask for?

It is so!

Clothes. Pants, socks, shoes, underwear, shirts, etc. Stuff you wear is clothes. Not like jewelry or anything, but we're talking basic clothes.

So, if someone is wearing a headband and it's made out of a fabric type material...that counts as clothes, right?

This may be a dumb question, but is it actually illegal to be intoxicated on illegal drugs?

If you overdose and get dropped off at a hospital, and the cops get involved but find no drugs or drug utensils on you whatsoever - what crime can they charge you with?

Im thinking public intoxication, but lets assume you overdosed in your own home and weren't out in public.

On Monday night, there was a large-scale event put on by my boyfriend. I agreed to help with lighting and some photography, but he felt as though he could use the help of one other person. I suggested my friend. The day before the event and again on the day of, I asked my friend if she would be able to help out. She agreed but said that she would not be available till 6:30 (the event started at 7:00).

The night of the event rolls around. At 7:30, there is still no sign of my friend. By this time, we realize that we don't need anymore help, so I text her to tell her that she doesn't need to help out any longer. She doesn't respond to the text. At 11, when the event ended, I called her to ask if I could stop by her apartment to pick up my things (I had stayed at her place the night before). She picks up the phone sounding a bit out of it, so I ask her what's wrong, and she says she's coming down with something. When I get to her place to pick up my stuff, she doesn't even ask how the event went.

Am I overreacting, or was this just plain rude and flaky of my friend?

Can anyone recommend me a really good pair of headphones that will preferably last me more than a year and are cheap? I need a pair that can take abuse. They're probably going to end up wrapped around an iPod and stuffed in pockets the majority of the time that I use them. Please don't recommend Griffin's unless there's a better pair than the ones I have for $14.00. They're just about dead and I've had them about a month.

I got some new glasses frames the other day because my old ones broke. I have since discovered that these frames hurt my head like a bugger. the part behind the ear bows in too drastically. Now my boss said I can take it in, and they do this special heating-up thing and bend them outwards a bit.

But, I'm at work today and no one's here so I can't leave but I can't take the pain anymore. If I take a (small) blowtorch out of the workshop and (very carefully) heat up my lenses to bend them, will that break them?

ETA: okayokay thanks everyone, what was i thinking, i'll wait till monday.

Yes I am incapable of making these decisions myself.

I got invited to a pancake party tonight. Idk whether I should go or not. Here is the situation:

1. I don't know anyone there very well
2. Going would require putting on pants
3. I'd need a ride there, and if I wanted to leave early it'd be problematic
4. I am not a social butterfly so I'd be hella uncomfortable


A. It would get me out of the dorm
B. It would be an effort to be social for once
C. I might have a good time after all, and

I have a sweatshirt that says Alaska on it and have had the following conversation with several people while wearing it:

"Are you from Alaska?"
"Then why are you wearing the shirt?"

Am I wrong in thinking that it is more common for tourists than natives to wear a clothing item with the name of a state on it?
Do you own shirts that have the name of your city/state on it (other than for a sports team)?

Should I break up with my boyfriend because he won't stand up to his idiot best friend who won't give us two seconds alone together?

Background: My boyfriend and I have been dating for 5 months (friends for two years). His best friend refuses to accept the fact that my boyfriend and I need time alone together and randomly shows up WHENEVER I am at my boyfriend's house. Like he litterally shows up 10 minutes after I get there without fail and will not leave. Today i had a really really bad day and was talking to my boyfriend about it for all of 15 minutes before his best friend walked through the door and smuggly asked if he was interupting anything. I've had enough of this. I left as soon as he sat down and tried to chat my boyfriend up. I'm really sick of this behavior and the fact that my boyfriend refuses to tell his best friend to gtfo.

ETA: I've talked to my boyfriend many times about this. He just seems to think his best friend is lonely.

Mine is of switching my alarm off, getting out of bed, brushing teeth, shampooing, rinsing, repeating, conditioning, etc hairstyling, makeup, all in minute, mundane detail...then realising I overslept by about 45 minutes (the amount of time it would have taken to do all that stuff in real life). It always happens before work.

An Orthodox Jewish family just invited me to move in with them rent-free. Doing so would save a lot of money ($536/mo + food costs) but it would mean some significant lifestyle changes (I would live farther away from the city, I might have to dress differently, and I wouldn't be able to go out on Friday nights or Saturdays during the day -- or at least if I did do all those things, it would be awkward).

Would you do it?

asking for my husband

So, my husband says over the past few weeks at work, he's gone into the bathroom and while he's washing his hands at the sink, more than one old dude has come in to use the urinal and they've done it with their hands on their hips. Obviously, *I* can't answer this because I have no penis, but how can a guy piss without holding his junk? I don't know if it's exclusively an old man thing, but my husband says they've all been old when he's seen it. Feel free to ask why my husband is checking out geezers taking leaks.
