In honor of my daughter losing her first tooth, how old were you when you lost your first one? Do you remember anything about it? I was in Kindergarten and had a dream so realistic, I swore for a year the tooth fairy was the fairy godmother from Cinderella, but she was only about 6 inches high. :)
Any asthmatics out there? How severe? Do you use the HFA inhalers? Do they work for you?
I had to rely solely on one for two days and nearly ended up in the hospital. I'm slightly appalled the FDA hasn't stepped in over this as yet, cos apparently it's a fairly regular occurrence for people to have little if any benefit from these things.
I got my ears pierced for the first time in July 2007. I had a horrible time with them. They got infected repeatedly before my doctor told me to remove them, and they instantly healed up by the next day.
I know why they got infected; I got a lot of incorrect information about how to care for them from both my doctor and the person that pierced them, so I don't expect those events to repeat.
However, despite two years having gone by since they healed up, my earlobes are still extremely sensitive. If I hit them by accident, they will get very red, tender and a little swollen. And even the entry holes in the front and the back still appear to be there, even though the center has healed up.
How long does it usually take for piercings to completely heal? When could I try to pierce my ears again?
Do you associate certain artists/albums/songs with summertime?
If y, which ones?
I'm listening to Phoenix's "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix" currently, pretty sure it's gonna get a lot of airtime in my car this summer. I also have a "SUMMER 09!!!!" playlist, but I made it in April in anticipation of summer and I'm already sick of it. :| lol
The guy who I'm seeing is a professional photographer and wants to take pictures of me. I'm extremely self conscious about my looks and I'm not totally comfortable with the idea because of it. Should I just do it anyway?
let's say you have four children: a 15 year old girl, a 10 year old girl, a 6 year old girl, and a 6 year old boy. you have two bedrooms available for the children. how do you split them up? what happens when they're all teenagers? do they keep the same rooms, or do you change something?
What is the code for business casual on skirt/dress length? Is even a little above the knee inappropriate?
I've been working at this hospital clinic for a couple years now (summer and holidays), but I've only recently come across this problem because I've been trying to wear more skirts and dresses. Most of the people at this office wear scrubs (even the desk people in the clinic area), but I mostly work across the hall in the more "office" setting.
Edit: Also, where do you look for dresses online TQC? Right now I am browsing the Shrinkle Shop on Etsy, so ty whoever recommended it in the Etsy post a couple of pages ago. I adore it!
hmm now that I finished Final Fantasy XII... what game should I play for PS2??? I was thinking about play Freedom Fighters again (damn fucking beautiful soundtrack ever!!!!!!!!!! Jesper Kyd rocks!!!!) but I am looking for something that really has a good plot! like Killer 7 (Goichi Suda, I love you, you son of a bitch, you made me buy the original game!!!) I like action games, but I prefer the plot!!!!!!!!
Inspired by a discussion that's been ongoing at one of my other internet hangouts lately:
Who is the most trollish member of TQC?
If you don't know/don't care:
Will you give me some suggestions for a good mother/son dance at my wedding reception? The only one I can think of it's that country one about "I'll always be her baby"...but the mom dies at the end of that one. We both know ballroom (best being waltz and foxtrot) if that helps. Instrumentals are acceptable, too. Srs and non-srs answers, please.
TQC, I will be coming into a little bit of "spending money," of which I have had zero for about a year. I'll probably spend around $200-$300 of it and save the rest for a rainy day. What should I spend it on?!
TQC, I'm sick with the flu or a virus of some kind* and have lost my voice.
HOW CAN I GET MY VOICE BACK? I need it! I don't feel that sick at all (a bit headachey, but nothing severe), but not having a voice is really pissing me off.
*Not swine flu, I've already been checked out for that. And yes, for those who saw my question on Sunday night, I have been off from work since then - but really only because there's no point in me going in to my office, where I'm a receptionist, if I can't speak.
I am startig to plan my bf's bday. It's something (SOOORRRY TQC) for us both only, since he plans something for all of his friends on his own. My ideas so far were to bake together a funfetti cake, since none of us has had it before (we live in Germany; those don't exist here), travel to some nearby city, and things of the sort.
1) If I was planning this bday for you, what would you want me to do to plan our day together? 2) What is the coolest thing someone planned for you for your bday? 3) What was the coolest gift Idea you had? 4) What was the coolest self made gift you ever received?
PS: Sexytimes related things are also welcomed as answers.
I want to marry with a foreigner to get out of Brazil legally! I clean the house, love dogs,I just don't know how to cook, but I can learn, I play video games a lot, i am a good partner in FPS, I like Splinter Cell and Metal Gear a lot too! Who wants to marry with me to take me out of this hell???????
Has anyone else' Internet been dead lately? There have been virtually no new blog posts on my Google Reader in several days, hardly anyone is posting in any of my communities, and I'm running out of TV shows to track down and watch on YouTube.
What will keep me occupied for several hours? I'm in the middle of a week off of work. Also, actually getting up and "doing things" is not an option.
Why does this icon keep coming up when I go to LiveJournal.com? Right clicking it, and asking for its image URL just tells me that its image URL ishttp://livejournal.com/ . +, what's happening, there, anyway?
On an unrelated note, do any of you use Linux? Will you tell me that switching from Windows to Linux is not scary, please?
Do you recall the names of two types of dolls that were popular in the mid-90's?
One type you could register the doll's name and they'd send you an outfit with the name you chose on the outfit as well as a birth certificate type thing. The other is a doll that was life like, looked almost porcelain but was definitely plastic. Any idea?
Tonight before I go to sleep, should I watch a scary movie (i.e. "The Strangers") or a happy movie (i.e. "The Incredibles" or "Kung Fu Panda")?
What's for dinner? Either leftover chili from last night, or Kraft mac n' cheese with sundried tomato sausage. I have not decided yet.
Will you describe your pet's favorite toy? My doggy loves this green rubber bone to play fetch with, and this tennis ball on a rope-with-a-handle to play tug-of-war. I just killed her ded from too much fetch... she just dropped the bone, walked a few steps and plopped down right on the floor, and is snoring a little bit. lol
TQC, make an extremely pertinent life decision for me!
I applied for my school's Early Childhood Education student teaching program this past spring. I got denied in February (they took only about 1/3 of the applicants, small group, big pool), and so knowing that the direct education route was out, I switched to a Rhetoric major. I will graduate in May 2011 with a BS in Rhetoric, and my plan was to go on to graduate school and get a Masters in Education (probably Special Education, because my school's graduate program does not offer an Early Childhood masters program, and if I get Special Ed, I can take the Early Childhood test alongside it and be duly certified). I was finally getting settled on this decision, when this afternoon while at work, I received a call from the student teaching program: they want to pull me off of the wait list and put me in the student teaching program for the fall. This would mean I would have to leave my newfound major (that I have fallen in love with slowly but surely) and go back to what had been my life plan for quite some time.
If I stay with my Rhetoric degree, I will have a BS in Rhetoric and a Masters in Special Education, as well as about $6,000 more a year than I would have with a BS. If I switch to the student teaching program like I had originally intended since the beginning of college, I will graduate in May 2011 with a BS in Early Childhood Education and can go straight into the classroom teaching my initial, and still favored, age group. The student teaching program is really cutthroat - looks good on your resume, but few people come out of it saying it was fun for them. I find the Rhetoric program to be a lot of fun, but it's not Education, which is what I want.
I am so fucking itchy right now I could cry. What the hell is wrong with me? I haven't done anything different recently - no new soaps, detergents, shampoos, different/exotic foods, etc. I don't think that I am especially allergic to anything, either. What would make me not want to itch my back and stomach raw right now?
Tech-question. You know how when you type something into your URL-bar that's not a URL, firefox does a search for it? how do you change that engine? ever since I upgraded AIM it uses aim but I want it to change back to google.
ps: i'm not talking about the search box beside the URL bar..
I just got a call from a unknown number so I picked it up, just in case. Some girl on the other line started rambling about how she saw me on Myspace and just LOVED my hair. Then she asked me where I got it cut and how I do my makeup. I don't do my hair and I don't wear makeup. I've also NEVER posted my number on the internet.
TQC, will you explain this to me and why someone would do that?
I'm taking Elidel for a skin rash and it has the lovely side effect of making me constantly nauseous. I know its the medication because this has happened before and I've stopped taking it for now, but I still feel like shit.
So does anyone know a way to help an upset stomach? It feels like a swallowed a block of chalk and everything I eat makes me feel worse. So far I've tried a piece of plain bread, saltines, milk, Ibuprofen, Pepcid AC, throwing up, and 7 UP/Sprite.
I'm having a hard time deciding between two perfumes. one, from Chanel, is very overpriced, but smells wonderful. the other, from Harajuku Lovers, smells like coconut, and it is about $60 less. Should I spend an assload or smell like suntan lotion?
if you don't care, what perfume do you wear? why do you like it?
do you have that one friend who, when you do/say something funny, throws their head back, laughs and claps at the hilarity you ensued? it makes me uncomfortable when my flatmate does it. it makes me feel like i'm putting on a show. would it make you uncomfortable?
if you don't care, what are some of the lamest names people you know have named their car? a friend of mine suggested the name 'bluey' for a blue car. original? someone i know gave named their honda 'hannah hondana'. i thought it was funny.
I'm looking for two poems that I only vaguely know the plot/idea to; so poem searches haven't been able to help me.
Could you guys please use your powers of awesome knowledge and identify these?
1) The first is about this wonderful man who is wealthy beyond imagination. He was also a philanthropist (I think) and was always happy wherever he went. Then one day he goes home and kills himself. I don't know an author or time period for this one.
2) This poem was about the author reminiscing of the days and friends of his youth. He remembered the young men and women running and dancing; comparing them to flowers. Then he goes on to speak of how, just like flowers and plants, they began to age and wither so that he was eventually the only one left. I seem to want to attribute this to Robert Frost but I could be wrong.
Theres a commercial for some commercial with Ed Quinn thats not the Cuervo Black Medallion tequila commercial but one for some vodka. Does anyone a) know what the commercial is for and b) whats the song in the commercial is?
I'm unemployed. Given the current economic situation I'm looking at applying for positions that I am "overqualified" for. I have a univeristy degree and a college post-grad diploma. My question is about the best way to apply for these jobs. Should I take my education off my resume completely? I think that might be the only option in order to be considered for any of the positions. I just think if I leave my education on there that they will look at my resume and see my schooling and think "she's not worth hiring, she won't stay". It's true... but I need a job.
So upon digging through my pantry just now for a snack, I realized that I have all the fixins for smores... but no means of fire (other than a candle, and I'd prefer my smores to taste like smores and not like candles). Would it be really trashy if I just melted some chocolate chips, stuck a marshmallow on top of one graham cracker in the microwave, put some melted chocolate on the other graham cracker and nommed?
which Viva Piñata should i buy? trouble in paradise, party animals, or the regular one?
what are some other xbox 360 games i should get? i got fall out 3, fable II, obivion, sw force unleashed, and mass effect, but im looking for different ones. i dont really like the shooter ones though i decided i like ones that are less realistic in gameplay. oblivion and fall out 3 have to much of the realistic gameplay i like stuff more like fable II where its more slashy not so realistic fighting. i like really adventurous stuff with open land to explore.
when i'm living at college, my skin is clear most of the time. i've been living at home for the past month and i've been breaking out everywhere. why do you think this is happening?
here's some information that may help:
my home is 2 hours north of my college. both are in the suburbs, but it is cooler and drier at home than it is there. i spend more of my time sleeping when i'm home. my home shower has a weaker water pressure. i take dance classes at school, but i have not exercised in any way since i've been home.
I'm not sure how I feel about this device. I know these have been around for a while, but I'd not been terribly interested in or aware of them until now.
I like the feel of real books. I like the smell of them, I like to write in them and feel my pen on paper. I like to bend the covers, clutch them close, and stick bits of paper in them to mark the better lines. The way the light reflects off the paper is perfect for my eyes. I'm a bibliophile and I love admitting it.
But is it worth the transition to have thousands of publications at your fingertips? Easily transportable and accessible? Sure, I can see the advantages, but personally, I'd only use it for class, and that's not worth the purchase. I only read one book at a time, and slowly. I bond with them, and give them all my attention while reading them, so I can't say the features appeal to my needs.
I like it, but I wouldn't use it.
What's your opinion on it? Do you see it as a welcome advance or a threat?
so my mom has come to the conclusion that she greatly dislikes her job. it doesn't pay enough and the management is not much better, so we're beginning to consider a move to a bigger city where there's more business in her area.
she's been working in automotive for the past ten years, and now she has experience doing parts work for pretty much every major american-made car except chevy, plus some mercedes and bmw and stuff. she also has an associates in accounting, and has worked at banks before.
she feels like she isn't very marketable, and i'm kind of worried about whether or not she'll be able to find a job if we move. would her getting her bachelors in accounting help that? what can you do with a bachelors in accounting?
i'm just curious, really. i'm not sure if she'd ever do it or even if i could convince her to.
I just got a gym membership and have never worked out a day in my life. For those who workout, do you follow a routine, or do you just walk in and pick something to start on? I really don't know what machines to use to achieve my goals. Also, will I look stupid going in there having never been in a gym? I don't even know how to turn a treadmill on.
edit: my goal is to get in better shape (I can't even run 5 minutes without having to stop) and lose 10 pounds. I just want to feel better, really.
Ladies with small hands and nickel allergies, where do you buy rings? I'm trying to find some big blingin' costume jewelry rings (yes they're tacky as heck but I love them) and I'm having a problem because A. I'm size 4 and B. I'm highly allergic to nickel so they need to be sterling silver, and at the mall they all had nickel in them and/or were too big =( Any recs for stores/online shops? TYVM
I just got my shiny new laptop, my first with Vista. I just transferred all my funny internet macros and .gifs to my new computer to find that the new version of Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, Windows Live Photo Gallery, does not animate .gifs. My most convenient option appears to be opening gifs with Internet Explorer, which is, uh, really annoying, because there's no option for me to click through my galleries, meaning that I have to open and close each .gif in a seperate IE window.
Has anyone found a way around this or maybe a program that I can download that would allow me to click through my .gifs like I did on my XP?
