I just found out that my best friend's boyfriend of 3 years cheated on her this weekend, and that it's very possible that this wasn't a one-time thing, but that he's done it more than once.

I live 3 hours away from my friend and am going home to see her on Friday. I can either wait until Friday to tell her so that I can be there in person with her, or I can call her tonight and tell her. I'm afraid of calling her tonight because I don't want her to be alone after she finds out, but I also feel weird about waiting 5 days to tell her. She is the sweetest, most innocent girl I've ever met so I know she's going to be devastated when she finds out.

If you were her, would you rather I call you tonight or wait until Friday?

Oh, and if it makes any difference, I don't think he has any intention of telling her himself. I don't want to confront him because right now I'm just disgusted by him and I'm afraid if I tell him he'll try to confess to her before I tell her, and I think she should hear it from a friend.

I love Halloween, but for the last few years a mighty large depression has taken the fun out of many things. This year, I'm trying to get into it early so I have a better chance of enjoying it.

For those of you that are really *into* Halloween, how do you get into it?

This Friday-Tuesday there are no classes because it's my Fall Break and so we have a 5-day weekend. Our school's never done these before this year, so I'm not sure if I should go home or not.

Staying at school - roommate is going home, so will have the room to myself, annoying suitemate will be gone too. Cafeteria will be closed Monday & Tuesday, don't have much, if any, money to feed myself. Pretty sure the boyfriend is going home so I wouldn't be able to have fun times with him. Closer to school work and with my things and independence to do whatever, whenever. A few friends staying, a few going home.

Going home - seeing parents, sibling and cats. Wii & Wii Fit in living room. Free food, can probably con parents into purchasing some stuff for me. Slightly boring, nobody really around and no car - only things within walking distance are a park and library. No friends. Haven't seen father since the summer.

What would you do, TQC?

I just got my hair cut yesterday and think it would look better darker. Should I dye it super dark brown/black? Now it is a brown with slightly pink undertones which I've been wanting to grow it out so I don't have to dye it, but I hate it. And no pics since I only can lj on my phone and it would be difficult.

If I were trying to buy someone a set of tools for use in a firepit, would that be the same set of tools for use in a fireplace, or different? 
i.e. would something like Collapse )
work, or do I need something else, and if something else, what would I be looking for and where would be good places to go looking?
For what it's worth, it's a pretty deep firepit, probably 1 1/2-2 feet deep.  I think maneuvering logs/etc in the fire is the issue, not so much removing ashes.

I can't remember what this girl's name is for the life of me. She's a famous European singer, but she was only like 2 or three when she started recording. All the videos I saw were in another language, which may have been a Slavic or Scandinavian, but I don't remember.

I remember in one of her videos, she was dragging a suitcase and was dressed in a big hat, scarf, and sunglasses. Then I think in the same video, she started unpacking the suitcase and setting up a photography studio in the woods.

Does anyone happen to know the name of this little girl?

Have you ever had strong feelings (romantically) for someone but knew from the beginning that they would not be the one you'd be with 'forever'? (elaborate)

Conversely, have you ever been so sure that someone was 'the one,' but had the rug pulled out from under you concerning this individual? (I.E. they dumped you out of nowhere, cheated, led a double life, etc) (elaborate)

What's making me sick!?

My boyfriend and I liked to go to this Chinese restaurant a lot. They have a great reputation, a 100 sanitation rating, and the place is *always* packed.

The first two times we went there, I got an upset stomach. I didn't really pay it any attention, assuming I ate too much.

The third time we went there, I only ate about half my plate, but still got a really bad tummy ache.

The fourth and final time we went there, I ate even less than before and I got *really* sick. I spent the entire night throwing up, and it was the only thing I ate that entire day. After I threw it up, I felt almost instantly better, and was starving the next morning.

Even though we both always order the sesame chicken, my boyfriend has never even gotten the slightest stomach ache, and I assume if the food was making a lot of people sick they wouldn't always be packed.

So what on earth is it about the food there that makes me really sick? I can't be allergic to it because I've had sesame chicken at other restaurants without any reaction.

It makes me so sad because the food there tastes so good!

I LOVE blueberry cream cheese on blueberry bagels (only Thomas' blueberry bagels, though... they're the most acceptable ones I've found down here), but I can't find blueberry cream cheese around here anymore. :( Would it be a good idea if I were to stick some dried blueberries (they feel like raisins almost... not totally dehydrated) in the food processor with my plain cream cheese?

What's on your agenda today? Whatcha up to?
I'm playing housewife - cleaning the apartment and baking cookies, and French and Italian homework later today.

When's the last time you were REALLY sick? What was wrong?
Probably about 2 years ago when I had strep. I kept thinking that it would just get better on its own... I didn't know it was a bacterial infection coz I never saw the white spots on my tonsils, so I thought it would just pass eventually. Not so much... ended up having to stay at the health center for 2 nights before they'd let me leave. :|

Poll #1466940 House hunting

Say you were looking to buy a house. You have some money saved up and you're looking around. Most homes for sale in the choice areas are around the same price, but there's a few homes that are half the price as the others. When you inquire, each home has a reason why it's been marked down. Which of these homes would you consider purchasing at half price? They're all two-three bedroom, two bathroom, depending on what you need

Reportedly haunted. Last 4 owners sold the house within a year after moving in
Owned by Kevin Federline. High amount of shag carpeting and ceiling mounted mirrors and the bedrooms have signs that say 'Fuck Nest 1, 2"
Former tenants (7 family members) all perished in the house due to a fatal gas leak. The place has been cleaned out and the gas lines fixed since then
Former Scientology safehouse. They used to lock troublesome members in here until they submitted. It only recently closed as a church institution and maybe not everyone knows
Next door to Tommy Lee. He has raging house parties 2-3 times a week, which can be quite loud, but also full of famous guests
Once owned by a serial killer. They found 15 bodies in the crawlspace
The back yard is a protected reservation for a extremely rare cricket, which has settled in the yard and found nowhere else. It's allowed to breed with impunity, is kind of noisy and you can't hurt them
Former porn shoot house. They filmed over 3,000 pornos in the living room and bedrooms. If you rent a porn, there's a good chance you'd see them fucking in your house
Former tenants (family of 6) were murdered in the night by a derranged war veteran who broke in. He's on death row now
House is within a mile of the train tracks, and the trains run at all hours
House is across the street from a pit bull rescue/shelter. Lotta barking
Former retirement hospital for 40 years. Thousands of people passed away within these walls
Previous tenants, a newlywed couple, were victims of a murder/suicide scenario
House is frequently used for filming movies. Several days a month, there will be movie trucks and trailers all around your street and you may have extreme difficulty getting into your house
House was built halfway up a very steep hill. The kind where you have to change gears driving up and only champion bicyclists could ride up. Just make sure your brakes are good

This is kind of a weird question, but um... how many times a day does your dog pee?

I feel like mine asks to go out like every hour and a half to two hours or so, and though the vet says there's nothing wrong it seems a little excessive. :T Maybe she's just being a brat and taking advantage of the fact that I'll take her out every time she asks (there were WAY too many accidents on the carpet while I was potty training her, so I'm really glad she lets me know now lol).

I probably won't, but

My frenemy is about to pick me up. I'm really tired and don't want to do anything and we were planning on seeing a movie and I'll probably fall asleep during it. Should I call him and cancel? I have to work at 5 a.m. tomorrow, boo hoo. But I haven't seen him in over a year.

So there's this guy who works in my bookstore and we've talked a few times and I think he's a cool guy. I would like to get to know him more and see what happens. I said I would come visit him, but I feel really nerdy going to the bookstore and not buying or returning anything. I made brownies yesterday. Would be ok if I cut a few and bring them to him? I want to seem like I'm interested in getting to know him, but it's ok if we're only friends, and I feel like baked goods might say too much?

Ever bought anything off of Craigs?

Yep, two old cellphones and my old iPod. All times I got my original asking price, soo... I also bought my current cellphone off of there, and paid a lot less than I was expecting.

I'm also bored and avoiding writing a paper, so yes, I'm cruising the local craigs personals and some of them are funny as fuck.

Let's say that you are wealthy. Wealthy enough to send your kid to college, no problem. You have been anticipating this expense since the child's birth and basically tuition won't be a huge dent in your finances at all.

Would it be unethical for you to encourage your child to apply for scholarships? (The scholarships are open to everyone, but there are a limited amount of them. Of course, some children are depending on scholarships to attend college.)

The end of my high school days are fast approaching and it seems like everyone knows what they want to do. Nearly every student I talk to in my small town share a similar life path: graduate high school, go to an in-state university and study law or work in the medical field. However, I have never shared this dream. I guess you could say I'm a daydreamer with an open mind. I don't really care if my career pays well, I just want to be happy. I need creative stimulation, but I'm nervous that I'll never find a career that suits me and I don't want to settle.

My question to you is what career do you think seems right for me?

do you have any ideas about fixing this?
what do you hate about your phone?


i think i solved the mystery! it only beeps when i'm in in a message conversation (because this phone has threaded messaging which is awesome!) and that person texts me.

So after a few months of going back & forth, my ex and I (his decision) decided to really end it. No more friends with benefits, no extended breaks, nothing. We're going to remain friends, but that is it. He doesn't want anything romantic again (but of course I do, ugh).

There's this guy that sort of kinda likes me, according to his friend, which is my best guy friend. I've known him since we were probably 10 or so, and I'm 20 now. There were a few years recently where we didn't really see each other, so it's still a little awkward because I don't know what happened in his life in those gaps. I know his family (very nice) and he's nerdy (+) and I don't feel like he'd judge me for liking nerdy things, which is one of my biggest fears with getting into a new relationship. He had a good sense of humor too. He's subtly hinting around that we go to the movies tonight (he's been trying to get my attention for a few weeks now). Do I go? If yes, how do I keep the awkwardness level down to a minimum? 

The relationship that I just got out of was 4 years long. Too soon to be going on "dates"? :\

I believe they are if we're talking about their success, dance skills and ability to entertain, but music and personality wise? Ignore the fact that they're both black and were huge in the 80's and it really doesn't make any sense. I do however notice many coincidences and parallels in their careers and personal lives though.

Okay so this person I know has this symbol tattoo'd on himself in 2 places (at least). He also has a hat with it on it & some pins that are on random articles of clothing. I'm so curious to know what it means. I can't just ask because I don't know him that well, and haven't seen him in a while, so calling him to ask this would be odd..I also have a slight crush on him & he knows it so he would probably think it was some weird way to get his attention bahah. It came up at dinner tonight though, because my friend and I were wondering about it, So i figured I'd ask you guys.
It looks like the Stereo skate logo..Collapse ) but is more of a triangle than a circle.
I dunno, maybe it IS the Stereo sign but why would he get it tattoo'd on himself twice?Plus it looks slightly different.
It's not a life or death situation obv, but I'm curious TQC, what does this boy have tattoo'd on himself? WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
