So, I have bipolar disorder, or manic depression as it is otherwise known.

I'm not sleeping much, I can't stop moving, my thoughts are racing and going in all directions, and generally I just feel fabulous.

I know this is dangerous and left unchecked will just lead to tears, but I really really want to keep going until I crash. I'm really struggling to try to make myself do the responsible thing.

How can I convince myself to do what I need to to stay sane?

Have you ever been to The Bell House in Brooklyn? It says it's in Gowanus, what kind of ~area~ is that late at night? How lost will I get?

I do my best to avoid Brooklyn because I always end up terribly lost, but I need to see Her Space Holiday.

Is your account Basic, Plus or Paid? 
My fiance says he'll pay to upgrade my account's seems kinda silly. Is a Paid account all that great? 

Otherwise...what should I get off the interwebz? I'm allowed to get whatever I want..."within reason".
What are your favorite online places to buy things from? The only thing I've ever bought online is a "animal adoption" from WWF for my sisters birthday present.

somato respiratory integration

Have any of you ever practiced somato respiratory integration? I have a lot of anxiety and emotional shizz all bottled up and reading about it seems like something I might need to try, as other things haven't helped. It's a part of Network Spinal Analysis, which I have a friend who was skeptical of but said it was amazing. So yeah, let me know if you've done either and how it went for ya, okay?

i sent my best friend (who's alllll the way in UK) a photo frame with photos of our past inside jokes, chocolates, biscuits, a disney princess light up pen, a little miss sunshine book, nail polish and hair ties. she sent me victoria cakes, a tutu skirt, a tiara and bubble liquid. 

2. would you prefer getting a bunch of random shit you'd never buy yourself or one specific thing you've always wanted?

My husband says that I don't give other salad dressing a chance because all i eat is either BlueCheese Italian or Ranch.

What is your favorite dressing?
What brand would you recommend?

 I'd been having minor problems with my mp3 player, so I downloaded the MP3 Recovery Program off their website. Since I've done that, my computer and my mp3 player don't recognize each other no matter what I do.

When I emailed the company about the problem, they informed me that my device is no longer under warranty so all I can do is pay to talk to a technician. I wrote them back, saying that my mp3 player worked until I followed their support site's advice. I think that they at least owe me instructions on how to get my mp3 player back to the way it was before their faulty software broke it. How do I get them to listen to me and fix this?

Do you read books?
What genre?
Can you recommend to me an author?
Can you recommend to me a novel? (not Twilight)
Do you buy your books?
Or do you use a library?
If you buy at a bookstore, do you have a membership card?
What do you do when you are done with books you've bought?
Do you borrow books from friends?
Do you lend your books to friends?  How do you ensure they'll return it?
Do you know what the website it's called where you trade your books with other readers and all you pay is shipping?

I buy my books ar Borders, yes I have a membership card, and sometimes at my library book sale where I can get books for under $5 in pretty good condition.  Sometimes I will borrow books from friends and/or my bosses at work (I am a domestic worker).  When letting other's borrow my books I am always asking them how they like it and to remember to return it when they're done.  It took about 3 years for me to get my Bridget Jones set back.  Conversely, I still have my best friend's copy of Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister.  When I'm done with books I've bought, I keep them if I liked them, and if I didn't like them I usually donate them.  But, I want to use that website where you can trade your books with other people.  I don't remember what it's called.

We reserve the right to make changes to your itinerary...

I booked a few flights a couple of months ago so that I didn't have an official layover, but that the two flights were separate from each other. One of the flights was scheduled to land in Boston at noon, and I scheduled the other flight to fly out of Boston at 7:55 p.m. just to be sure I didn't miss it in case there were delays.

Well, now the airline e-mailed me and they changed my itinerary in a MAJOR way. Now instead of getting into Boston at noon I don't get into Boston until 6:38 p.m.! WTF? I MIGHT catch the other flight, but it's doubtful...

Do you think because they changed my schedule by so many hours I could call them and get them to put me on an earlier flight for no additional charge? And has something like this ever happened to you?

Resume Question

So this is slightly tl;dr...

I have been working as a nanny, and I have recently given my notice because I will be moving out of state. I gave a full 30 days notice, as specified in my contract.

Things have mostly gone very well in this nannying gig, except for the fact that one of my bosses (the mom) is super mad at me for quitting, and even though she has given positive feedback on my job review, and things have been going very well with the kids, I'm worried about what she would say to future potential employers.

My question: what do you do with a job reference or previous employer who has a personal problem with you, but no work related problems? Can I give a lot of other evidence of my nannying experience (like all the photos, nannying journal, things the kids made for me, etc.), and say "please do not contact"? Or is that bad form? What is the best way to handle this?

This is a serious question, but if you don't know, I don't mind non-serious answers.

Have you ever, at all, while cleaning your fish tank, decided to go pee while holding one of your fish? Even if it was just a little one? (fish, that is)

Because this guy makes me boggle.

So, penis-havers, what have YOU stuck up there? Non-penis-havers, and penis-havers who haven't stuck anything up there, do you know anyone who stuck something up there that they shouldn't? What was it? Do tell!

Dear Penthouse TQC:

We just hired a new girl at my yogurt shop who is incredibly fine. She has an awesome personality, is fun to work with, and a kickin'  rad body. However, I have heard that it is ill-advised to dip your pen in the company ink. Regardless, I may just go for it. Oh also, I'm 18 and she's 21 if that makes any difference (PRO: booze. CON: is that creepy?)

TQC, should I go for the new girl?
If I go for her, how should I go about it?
If/when we break up, If I tell her that I don't want it to be weird, what are the chances it'd still get totally fucking weird?

So, this girl I haven't heard from in about 4-5 months is at the movie theater last night and yells 'hey what's up' as I'm leaving the theater with my friends and I ignored her, since like I said she hasnt spoken to me in months and the last time we spoke she made it clear she didnt really care to remain friends.

Anyways, a few hours pass and I start getting texts from her complaining that I ignored her and calling me shady, etc etc. This goes on for an hour or two and finally I reminded her about her 5 month silence and she responds 'It's the guys place to talk to the girl'. Fair enough, except that's for playing 'the game' so I took it upon myself to remind her that she said she wanted to remain *quote* strictly friends *end quote* back when we did talk. She couldn't argue with that and said 'Yea, I hear you on that'[ and hasn't said anything else.

What the fuck was up with this whole thing?

I submitted a resume through Open Office to MY SCHOOL for a Summer job. I just got a call back from a woman who basically bitched me out that it wasn't in the right format and that I NEED to do it in Word. I don't have word, so I asked if I could put the information into an email and she screamed that it was impossible and that she needed to print it out.

*By format, I meant the header wasn't there and she didn't like how I set it up. Not that it wouldn't open

Does this make any sense?
Would this make you reconsider working with her?
Why couldn't she just print up the email?

*I would totally understand if this was a serious job...but this is for students who are IN NEED through my school, at my school.

if you don't care:

Will you tell me about bad bosses/managers?

Obama in the election last November and have since lost your (or his/her) job, do you (or the someone you know) regret voting the way you did because you think Pres. Obama has not done enough/done too much/not done what he should have as far as the economy is concerned? Or if you/someone you know just regrets voting for him at all, why?

My wife's birthday is coming up, and I'm ordering a Chia Obama Head for her from Shipping is nearly six dollars, but if I add something costing $6.01 or more to the order, I'll get free shipping, so that would be the way to go.

What should I buy from Amazon that costs at least $6.01 (but not much more)? It could be for my wife, for me, or for our 11 year old son. It has to actually ship from Amazon and have the notation "eligible for free super saver shipping".

Links to specific items appreciated.

I'm going to an unfamiliar area later this week and according to Wikipedia it's full of factories, shipping warehouses, and housing projects. Does it sound like it might be kind of ~shifty~ really late, from 1am - 4am? That's probably the time I'll be walking back to the subway.

I'll be alone so I'm just kind of concerned. There is also a very good chance that I'll end up very lost.

Ladies, how do you feel about your male friends flirting with you? I'm sure the answer is "it depends", so what does it depend on? What do you do to encourage or discourage it? Answers about guys in whom you'll never ever be interested, as well as guys in whom you could potentially some day be interested, are welcome.

Guys, why won't you quit flirting with your female friends, can't you tell they hate it and it makes them uncomfortable?

1. I have an uncooked beef roast that I need to use up. Should I slice it up and make a delicious stir fry? Or should I make a roast beef dinner (mashed potatoes, etc)? Any other ideas? It's not really an expensive cut of meat, so cutting it up wouldn't be a travesty.

HP is refusing to replace the battery on my less than 6 month old mini laptop, even though its still under manufactor's warranty. I never, ever dropped it, nor have I dropped anything on it, it looks more like some sort of stress fracture directly in the center of the battery casing. They will replace it, but for $300 (It was a $400 laptop).

This is shitty - Anyone have any tips with dealing with these asses? Or am I going to be SOL? I've never really had to bitch at a 'big' company before.

vector/cutco receptionist question

I posted the other day about having an interview as a receptionist and needed some help. Well now this interview has lead me to a new set of questions.. I just interviewed to be the receptionist at Vector/Cutco marketing. I have done my research and read lots about them being a scam and read lots about them being legit. And I don't really mind if they're a scam honestly. I just want to know if I'm going to get paid. The guy is calling me tonight to let me know whether or not I got the job.

So, TQC, have you or anyone you've known ever been the receptionist (not a marketer) at Vector/Cutco? Did you get paid hourly or was it based on how many people you get to set up an interview? Is there any more information I should know about this job before taking it?

Thank you for any help!!

i'm applying for office assistant positions but haven't had any long term experience. but I have subbed for a receptionist friend and done some filing elsewhere... So it's not like I'm completely inexperienced, but I haven't ever interviewed and been hired to be an office assistant and can't put it on my resume.

Has anyone here been diagnosed with social anxiety?

I think I have something like that. I get extremely anxious when I know I'm going to have to be in a place with lots of people or somewhere I haven't been before. Every morning before I go to work, I start feeling really nervous and I throw up. But when I have the day off, I'm fine. Every time I go to Walmart or another crowded store, I start shaking and my heart starts beating real fast and I feel like I'm going to be sick. When I got pregnant, I had to go to family services to get medicaid. I sat in the parking lot for an hour, hyperventilating because I had never been in the building before and I was afraid I was going to go to the wrong desk or something and they'd laugh at me. I finally called my best friend and made her come and bring me inside. These are just some examples of some of the stuff I deal with every day.

clearing off my post it of the day!

TQC, are there certain people you just do not like? Why don't you like them? Is it their personality, their attitude, something they did to you?
Yes, and I can't explain it.

Tomorrow night, my church is having a graduation service, and my brother is a part of it. One of the things he will have to do is pick someone to come up and speak about him for 5-7 minutes, and I'm his person. I feel like all of our best jokes are entirely inappropriate, so what the hell can I talk about for five minutes?? I will mention his school successes of course but that will take a minute and a half, tops. What are some major events that I should include?

How do you clean your space? (room/apartment/suite, etc.) Do you let it get to pigsty level and then clean it, or do maintenance cleaning?
Pigsty then clean.

Do you wash your dishes in the sink or in the dishwasher? Ever mistaken dishsoap for dishwashing powder? How'd that go for you?
I prefer sink, but will use the dishwasher after a big event. No, but one of my best friends did recently. HILARIOUS.

TQC, I'm taking you all to The Varsity! What'll ya have, what'll ya have???
Onion Rings and a Frosted Orange!

Of the following spelling/grammar errors, which bothers you most (and yes, you have to pick one of the three):
A) ect. in lieu of etc.
B) your in lieu of you're and vice versa
C) to, too, two switch ups?
B), A & C could be typos, whereas you're/your are hard to justify as such, with the apostrophe and all

Do you shop at department stores (eg Kohls, Macys, JC Penny, Belk, Dillards, Parisian), chain stores (American Eagle, The Limited, etc.), boutiques, or other types of stores?
All of the above

TQC, my Mom is an emotional wreck. Her coping method has been alcohol but today she has agreed to get help. Aside from going to meetings, she wants to find a place online where she can just talk to others about her daily problems and I could direct her to some random google link but i'd rather get suggestions and feedback from others. So, do you know any sites or online communities like this?

srs answers only please. TQC is not a srs answer.

Low-cut blouses

What constitutes a "low-cut blouse"? The dress code is supposed to be casual, but on the conservative side. Will the top be okay if you can't see any cleavage when I bend over?

TQC, I am having dinner tomorrow here.  I love the hell out of that restaurant.  So much, that one time I was there I filled out a comment card and left my street address and email address.   A few days ago, I got a coupon in the mail for a free entree in celebration of my birthday, which is Sunday.  The coupon is good for up to $30.

My question is this:
Will I seem like a total whitetrash cheapskate if I use this coupon?  It's a nice place but it's also pretty casual (lots of people in jeans, but still a pretty steep foodie atmosphere).  I don't usually use coupons beacuse they're a pain in the ass.  

The reason I ask is this: I was a server for about 10 years at a popular seafood chain who dropped coupons about once every six weeks.  The coupon tables were the bane of my existance.  Before I could even approach the table, they'd be all "I HAVE A COUPON AND DON'T TRY TO RIP ME OFF BY NOT TAKING IT!1!"  Obviously, I know how to handle myself in a restaurant, but I'm kind of lost about the protocol of a coupon in a place that isn't a grocery store.

Tim onstage!

A few weeks ago, in a community here on LJ (it might have been in randompictures, but I can't rightly remember) someone posted a link to a nifty little Flickr tool. You could choose colors from a panel on the side, and whatever color(s) you chose, Flickr would bring up a selection of pictures that featured said color(s). If you picked only yellow, it'd bring up pictures with that yellow, if you added a blue, it'd bring up pictures that had that exact yellow and that exact blue, etc. I think you could choose up to ten colors.

I found this one via Google, but it only lets you pick one color at a time. Does anyone happen to have the link to the first one I described, though?

EDIT: Got it! Thank you, thedisassociate.
