so the guy i'm crushing on who i think might have a crush on me has a lip ring on the opposite side i have mine. he has a hoop and i have a stud. based on the fujita scale, what's the likelihood if we made out they'd snag and we'd tear each others' lips up?
ALSO, WHAT THE HELL IS HITTING MY WINDOW? it sounds like tiny pebbles! and dear god, i'm on the first floor!!!
TQC, this is very very urgent. I am trying to think of a song and my brain will not let any of it pop up, so now I need your help. The song I'm trying to think of is by a band of the newish swing sound, like Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, etc. Only I don't know what the 'etc' is because my brain is being a twatwaffle. This will drive me crazy if I do not figure it out.
What are some bands similar to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Brian Setzer Orchestra?
Edit: Oh, nevermind. My husband found the stack of mixed CDs and the one this song is on was in there. I think I was headed in the total WRONG direction thinking it was similar to BBVD, but it's Space. Space is the band I'm looking for. You may proceed to provide bands, though, since I am enjoying the trip down memory lane. :D
I did the Direct Install for the Burning Crusade expansion[where you don't buy a whole box/CD-rom/retail key; you just buy it online]. But it doesn't work. At all. It's showed up on my card charges, under pending charges, but I don't have anything resembling an install thing. Any of you WoWers had this problem? How'd you fix it [other than calling Blizzard]?
my washer has held my clothes hostage and wont give them back to me. its one of those maytag stacked washer dryers where the dryer is on top of the washer part. my dad took it all apart and claimed he fixed it but now it keeps going cycle after cycle it must be on its 10th cycle by now. the thing is the door is on lock and when i scroll the thing too stop it automatically clicks to another cycle. what the fuck do i do?
I work at a movie theatre and one of the projectionists LOVES to scare the living hell out of me whenever I'm upstairs. There are lots of places to hide and he takes great delight in using all of them to his advantage. He might be the only person to have elicited my girliest screams. Do you think he is flirting with me?
What is the best way you have scared someone you work with? Do you have any good ideas for me to get him back?
Is there a logical reason why you might need to know what JUST your right arm or left leg weighs or is composed of? I believe this scale falls into the category of unnecessary gadgets and stuff, am I right?
tqc, i can't dress myself. i want to look cute today and it's going to be like 73 and i want to impress this guy that's on crew with me since all he's seen me wear so far are black pants and black long sleeve shirts. these are my options:
for skirts: one is high waisted, black, and pleated, and the other is just kinda full and is green on top and fades to teal at the bottom. they're both knee length.
for shirts: i have v necks in almost every color but black, and also this but in light grey.
for shoes: black suede flats with silver glitter detail, bright pink canvas flats, pointy red fake leather flats, and silver sequined flats. i have heels but i don't want to dress up TOO much.
for purses: i have a big purple one and a big zebra print one.
Every time we go visit my husbands parents we pass one and want to go but don't. We are driving halfway and letting his parents keep the kids this weekend. We will pass it and I was thinking about going for dinner tonight. Should we go?
Where do you suggest I could find great ideas do clothes for the ~larger woman~ (I'm not that huge-o) for summer that don't look like mu-mus or give me that "oh god, what did she just stuff herself into?" look?
Also, cheaper is better, lol. I do not care whatsoever about label :P
What would you wear to a Friday night barbecue? Weather is sunny and clear and in the 60s. Also, you'll be meeting your new boyfriend's friends and coworkers for the first time, so you need to look good.
I'm only a freshman at college right now, but grad school is already on my mind. I already know my dream grad school, and of course i know things could change, but anyway...
So I'm wondering how amazing/talented you need to be to get into grad school? This grad school isn't med or law school; it's not Columbia or Harvard or anything, but I was reading about some of the student's bios and they have done amazing things.
So yeah, how amazing DO you need to be to get into grad school? My GPA as of now is in the low 3.0 range, but hopefully that will improve next year. I'm involved in things, but I think i should be involved in more (this year is sort of over for now though), and I haven't started anything or done any cool leadership things.
Have you ever been watching TV with closed captions on and noticed the caption staying on longer than it was intended?
For example, I just saw an ad for the new Matthew McConaughey movie, and at the bottom of the screen it said, "deoderant that won't quit." That was pretty funny, since Matthew McConaughey looks like he smells.
I'm renting a room and when my lease is up I am moving far away. My flight is really early in the morning. I'll probably have to leave around 6 a.m. Anyway, I can live for a couple of weeks without a desk and dresser, but what can I do with my bed when I move out? I don't have a car or any way to take it to a dump or anything.
So, I am applying for a job that requires two letters of reference. I got one of the letters already, but the woman I asked for the second one still hasn't gotten back to me, even though I said I needed it by yesterday. How much am I allowed to hassle her? Or should I try to find somebody new, even though I really only have until the end of today to get one? (for the record, I asked her over a week ago and she said she would do it.)
My wife is closing on our new home tomorrow, but she hasn't given me the adress, she also hasn't given me the new phone number yet. What kind of suprise am I going to be in for when I go on R&R next month??
Recently I received my phone bill, and instead of the usual amount I pay there was an extra charge for a number which cost 25 quid. I phoned up my provider and they said the number was for a 'adult recorded storyline'.
I wasn't in at the time this call was made, no one else could have made it.
About a week before the call was supposedly made there was a man outside my house in a van, who was just sitting using a laptop for half a hour before he drove away. I noticed him because i'd never seen the car before, and I live on a fairly quite street so it's unusual to see anyone new.
When I phone on my landline, that the call was charged to, it says number not recognized and when I call from my mobile it says the number has been barred from callling that number, which shouldn't be happening as my mobile providers are different from my landline provider.
Is it possible someone hacked my phone line? If yes, how could they do it?
This summer I'm moving for the first time to an apartment near my university. The apartment seems good, and pretty spacious for one person, BUT it's not allowed to paint the walls any color but white unless I paint it back to white before moving out.
Does anyone have any nice ideas to give the room a lot of color without painting it?
My boyfriend's mother told me she'd seen somewhere pictures of a type of cover with pretty colors and designs, that you could place on the walls and remove easily without affecting the paint. Does anyone here know what she's talking about?
Whenever I say that I don't have the money to do something (for example taking a trip to Six Flags) one of my friends says "Just ask your mom". He has a good, full-time job and no rent so money isn't an *issue* for him.
Would this annoy you? I usually just say no, but is there a better response to that?
My friend sent a pic of herself that she took with her camera to my phone while I was on my way to lunch with her. She then told me that she sent the pic by accident and could I please delete it because it's embarassing. Now, I'm pretty confident it's not anything gross, but I'm just really curious. Anyway, my question is not whether or not I should open the pic (I'm pretty sure the answer is "no" but I'm going to do it anyway) but whether she can tell that I've opened the pic from my phone? Or does it depend on the phone? Also if you want to dissuade me from opening it, that too.
ETA: This was really just a specific question about cell phone technology and not about whether I should open a picture and put it online.
So, TQC, I've been offered a job in the town I grew up in, which is three hours away from the city I live in now. The job is full-time for four months and pays $25 dollars an hour. My current job is part-time and pays $8.60 an hour. Seems pretty sweet, huh?
The problem is that my boyfriend of three and a half years lives in this city. We've already done the long distance thing for two and a half years and I really, really don't want to go back to that.
Hey guys! This summer I'm moving to an apartment for the first time alone, to live in an apartment close to university. I'll only be there on school days, since I live only about an hour away from home.
I've been very exciting about this since things at college will be a lot easier next semester without having to travel one hour each way, everyday. Plus, I know it will be a great experience. But it's freaking me out that I will be living alone in my apartment, and there's plenty of criminality in some places of that city, and I'm a scaredycat when it comes to those things...
If you've lived alone before, how long did it take you guys to get used to living alone?
How old were you?
Do you have any advice for me to get used to it faster?
Okay, I have a slight problem with my partner's computer. It started up yesterday when I was using it, I was trying to access the internet and of course, he's got Zone Alarm on the system and it starts up. Being technologically moronic, I clicked 'deny' and 'don't ask me again' because I thought it was something trying to access the computer, making the system lag and chug horrifically. Well, what happened was that the internet was completely disabled, save for programs like MSN and STEAM, which worked, while you couldn't access Mozilla/whatever. Pages, if you will.
Well, I checked the system, and eventually got it working when I found that Firefox that been marked as 'blocked' and I clicked allow. It worked again for the rest of the night, but now refuses to work. I checked everything but it still doesn't work, even though I've got the router and the cable hooked up to my laptop (which is working, otherwise I wouldn't be typing this).
Now, have I fucked my partner's computer up, or is Zone Alarm still dicking with it somewhere, and can I somehow 'reset' it's values so it doesn't want to keep blocking the internet anymore? I'm sorry for the wall of text, but I've been trying to see what's wrong for the last few hours and it's really pissing me off.
Much love to anyone who can help me out with this.
What are some good free/cheap webspace providers? I used to use the free webspace from my ISP, but I cancelled my service and now I share a connection with my best friend, who is using all that webspace herself. All I require is 50mb and ftp uploading.

Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls will be hosting and doing a 2 song set. I can't find anyone to come with me, but tickets retail at $175, so I'd feel really bad going alone or dragging my entirely disinterested husband. What do I do? Wanna go?
Why is my girlfriend so financially irresponsible and gullible?
She's constantly having money taken from right under her nose. Like the $9/month maintenance fee on her checking account that should not be there, but has been there for 2 years now, which she says has not actually been there (Um... it's on all of the statements...)
This latest issue is due to her gym charging her an extra month after she cancelled her membership, and tacking a late fee onto it because they never actually cancelled the account like they were supposed to. And she seems okay with this.
Tell me, why is this acceptable to her?
And for the record, we do not have disposable income--we're broke, and we'll both be unemployed come May 1st.
1. what websites do you check first when you get online? 2. have you ever been fired? why? 3. if you live in an apartment or have before, what are some things you've complained about to the manager? 4. Have neighbors ever complained about you/to you (in an apartment complex or otherwise)? Why?
(I ask because we got a note on our door this morning from the manager saying to stop dropping our cigarette butts on the patio below us. But we put them in an ashtray, AND have a rug down so nothing slips between the boards...so I don't know why they complained.)
ETA: 5. Should my husband and I go to Wales for our honeymoon (where I've always wanted to go) OR should we buy a house? (We got married last month AND we'd be first time house buyers)
Do you eat a variety of foods day in and day out, or are you one of those people who only eats a few foods for days at a time, then switch gears and not touch that food for a long time and switch to something else?
If you are the latter, what are you eating/craving right now?
My dad's diabetic and he asked me to pick up syringes on my way to his house. I went to walgreens and the girl gave me the wrong size. I realized this after I had paid, but had only taken a few steps. I told her this and she went to change them out, but then some snotty girl behind her goes "NO RETURNS ON NEEDLES!" I tried to say something but she cut me off and said "NO EXCHANGES, IT'S A LAW!!" She was a bitch. I googled and couldn't find anything other than laws on sales. Can you return/exchange an unopened, in-tact pack of syringes? (I'm in Illinois)
what the hell should i do all weekend? i have nothing to do between now and 4 PM on Sunday when i go to work for 3 hours and then go off to see Flight of the Conchords. i've got wine, A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back tonight so i think i'm covered but what should i do tomorrow?
BONUS QUESTION: does it blow anyone else's mind that Harrison Ford was already 35 in A New Hope?
Thank you for the lovely helpful answers to those who did indeed answer. The rest, you may ignore this, since people obviously don't like this post. :) Very sorry.
I think I was the reason to my mom's breakup with her fiance three years ago.
Here's the story in a nutshell, they met they were both on the verge of divorce, and they started going out, he was really nice but I had to be a major pig-child and annoy the hell out of my mom because I was constantly jealous. When he actually applied for a divorce his wife decided to kill some of his nerve cells. End result: he has his own problems, he's moody, that makes my mom moody, I managed to make my mom hysterical, he didn't like all the pressure, he left her.
Three years later, my mother still loves him, he's been supporting us financially, but meeting us only once or twice a year... He's been going out with random women but doesn't get involved. We pretend we don't know.
Now I'm feeling incredible guilt for making my mom so unhappy. She's 42 and she's lonely... I'm leaving for uni in a year, she'll end up alone, or marry some stupid fuck.
I need to do something, I know he still cares because of everything he's doing for us. He knows she still loves him, how do I let him know that she isn't going to wait all life? I can't NOT get into this because I am practically his adopted daughter.
What would be a good title for a short film about some crazy time-travelers dropping in on a failed novelist as he's trying to write? Note: they aren't helpful time-travelers and the whole thing is in German. Srs and non-srs answers welcomed (though I don't know how you could manage the former when it's time-travel we're dealing with).
okay, so my boyfriend, roommate and i were talking about dogs the other day and our roommmate said something about this little wolf/husky type mixed dog. neither of us can remember the name of it now, and i wanted to look it up and squee over pictures of it. i think it started with an 'a'...maybe.
anyone know of a small-ish, husky/wolf dog, that may or may not start with an 'a'?
i think my manager is stealing from our store. im a waitress , and one of the other girls money has come up missing. its only her, and this isnt the first time its happened. it happens all the time, and they're always tables that are regulars and always tip. and the drawer has come up missing money.
Have you ever had any managers steal from the place you work at ?
1. Are you going on any sort of vacation this summer? 2. What's the best site for finding the cheapest flight tickets? 3. Do you keep in touch with anyone you graduated high school with? 4. Tell me about your most recent/hilarious drunken adventure. I'm all alone at work! ;(
I am watching Clueless and painting my finger and toenails with my roommate. I really just thought this was fucking awesome and wanted to share it with as many as possible. But now I am curious about what you people are doing!
EDIT!: Have you seen Clueless?!?! How many times? What is your age and gender?!
My current cell phone is giving me problems. It vibrated for two days straight(over easter, so I couldn't take it into the shop) and now even after it's been fixed, it sometimes vibrates for 10-20 minutes or emits a high pitched ring when I have it open. As a result, I think I'll get a new phone in Sept(when I am eligible for an upgrade).
What phone do you have? Do you like it? Pros and cons?
Has anyone ever used a Samsung Gravity? What about a Samsung Propel?
I'm with Rogers Wireless, if that helps. And also, I can't get an iPhone. Too expensive.
My boyfriend doesn't care much to watch scary movies, TQC. I've slowly been trying to convince him to watch "good" scary movies (psychological/creepy/mindfuck as opposed to guts-flying-everywhere-torture-porn). I've got The Thing, Alien/Aliens, Red Dragon, and The Shining in mind so far. What suggestions would you have along those lines?
He hates Halloween (John Carpenter's original) and Cube. And he thinks watching truly awful bad movies (like Plan 9 or Robot Monster or Graveyard Shift) for the sake of hilarity is a waste of time. What is wrong with him? :C
Have you ever successfully completed a game of RISK? How long did it take?
When you write emails, do you always start with a greeting? How often do you use the person's name in the greeting?
What do you think when you receive an email that has no greeting or name at the top, it just begins with the body of the message? Does this seem discourteous, even if the tone of the message itself is respectful?
I have been seeing a girl for 5 months. We live 56 miles apart. We spend the weekends together, Saturday evening until Sunday evening, though usually she has errands and stuff to do, so I have to leave earlier. Of those weekends for the past 5 months, I have either driven or taken the bus all but 4 times, but I've also gone down for a few hours during the week about 4 times, so let's call it an even 20 times that I've traveled 112 miles, 2.5 hours in the car, 6 hours on the bus (round trip.)
You with me? (not the question)
She owns a car but has only agreed to come up here twice. She refuses to take the bus. There is no use in trying to reason with her on the subject, she won't be swayed. On all subjects, she's very stubborn.
It's so frustrating, and the couple times that I've complained, she has gotten really upset and said that she works all week and likes to have her weekends to try to get things done around the house, do things she can't do on weeknights, etc.
I work too, and up to this point, I have been the one making the compromises.
She has told me that during the summer when the weather is crappier where she lives, she'll come visit me more often, but my work is going to be getting busier (yeah, I'm a cabana boy) so it might not work out.
1) What should I tell her?
Also: I've told her I loved her, many times. She's not been in many relationships, and she has yet to tell me she loves me. She gets emotional over me, and she cares a lot about my living situation, but refuses to shed any sort of affectionate word upon my ear.
My sister is very unhappy with her body right now, she's thin and pretty but still pushes herself to work out and diet as much as she can. Her birthday is coming up and I want to get her something that will help her feel good about herself. She isn't a big reader but I was thinking of a book because she can come back to it again and again if/when she needs it. Can you recommend any titles or anything else that might give her a boost?
She lives with me and most of the time I'm at my boyfriends place but when I am here, I don't get 5 mins peace. She's always coming and asking questions, talking about nothing at all or when I try and ignore her she talks to herself.
Ideally I would ask her to shut up for a bit and give me some peace, some 'me time' but she's difficult. If I actually say this she'll most likely either go in a mood with me and get angry or start crying. Either way I'll feel like a twat for saying anything.
All I want is some peace, time to myself, to be able to watch tv in my own house without her bugging me every 5 mins.
How would you suggest I go about dealing with this?
Do any of you have the "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" macro that's got 3 versions of it (the original and a couple generic brands with equally silly names), and it has them labeled something like "Faith. Hope. Reason."? plz&tyvm bbs
And since that'll get answered quick, how do you prefer to eat your ice cream? Cup, cone, straight from the soft-serve nozzle? And if a cone, what kind?
What's the largest phone bill you've ever had or seen?
My friend's was over 10k once.
Edit: He was being charged by the KB (or something) for internet access, when he was supposed to have a plan that gave unlimited internet access for $10 or so a month. It was his parents using the internet on the phones to surf ebay that jacked up the price.
Edit 2: I just called him. The bill is now up to a little over 17k. HOWEVER, when this first happened, they did recalculate the bill and he only had to pay what he actually owes. It's just that they still haven't fixed the bill to reflect that, so every time he logs into his account, it says he still owes over 17k when he doesn't.
I have an jpg image that says its 248 X 350. Any program I open it in, opens it as a 248 X 350 image. But when I use gimp2 it shows the small preview of the image, and I can clearly see that it is not a 248 X 350 image and that the picture is actually larger, probably like 500 X 400.
What can I do to view the whole image? I'm thinking I'll have to download something to change the image attributes, but I don't know what.
I got a puppy today. I fed him, he peed, we played, and he has a blankie to snuggle into but he's really restless. I think it's from being separated from his family. Is there anything else I can be doing to calm him down?
EDIT: you were right, he passed the fuck out as soon as he got on my bed
