Tire chains + no snow = ? [Nov. 6th, 2009|12:48 am]
The Question Club
thequestionclub
[bandeau]
Is it illegal or unsafe to drive 3 hours in no snow with chains on my tires? Driving 65-70 mph most of the time?

I drive a '06 2x4 Nissan Xterra. I'm driving from Napa to Lake Tahoe (approx. 4-hour car drive) in late December by myself and I know it's required to have my tires chained up when driving in snow but obviously I can't do it on my own before hitting the snowy parts so I was wondering if it would be fine to have some guys do it for me at home and then I just drive with them on the entire time.

Sleep.. [Nov. 6th, 2009|01:07 am]

[goodgirlzero]

What are the things that make you go to sleep? Do you have a routine? If so, what?

My husband and I head to bed around 9. I lay here for hours reading livejournal, and playing with various applications on my iPhone. I also read a chapter or two on my kindle. By the time I even feel tired it's hours later (4 hours right now) and I'm still awake. It never changes no matter how tired I am or how early I wake. I have the hardest time sleeping..but yet I want to sleep.

African American Fantasy Stories? [Nov. 6th, 2009|01:25 am]

[akktri]
After reading several complaints about artists not making more fantasy pictures involving people of color, I decided to broaden my horizons.

Unfortunately, I need some help getting ideas.

Can somebody point me to a fantasy story about black people or other ethnic minorities that involves fantasy creatures, magic, and epic adventure? Is there an African American equivalent of Lord of the Rings? Any good science fiction? Point me to the right book and I'll start reading!

[crazy01204]
So I lost a lot of weight and I now wear a size 2 in jeans, dresses and skirts. I am 5 ft 5.5 inches. 120lbs
Are these measurements too thin, thin or just right?
I think I'm thin, but my roomie disagrees and says I'm skinny.

So what do you think?

EDIT: I've never weigh this less before since I was 10 (I was 2 inches shorter than), and have always been a bit chubby. So my new figure is really foreign to me. I though thin > than skinny. Skinny sounds skeletal to me.

I would like to work out at a gym after work, but I have a 6 month old at home so I have to come home in time for my fiance to go to work.

Garage Doors - Open? [Nov. 6th, 2009|08:29 am]

[mood |curiouscurious]

While walking through a very nice neighborhood one evening, I noticed that most of the people left their garage doors open about a foot off the ground. Now that I have a house, I've noticed that some of my alley neighbors leave their garage doors completely open during the evenings. I thought maybe it was a fluke, especially since I would worry people would steal stuff, but it seems to be pretty much every evening.
Is there some benefit to leaving the garage door open in the evening?

TQC, I've had a cold for about a week and a half. Last night I took some medicine and slept about two hours - I just couldn't sleep, I felt delusional and hot and had the chills. I woke up this morning with an ear infection.  :( I had two infections in the same ear over the past three months. I have antibiotics, but never finished them because they ended up giving me yeast infections. heeeell no.

BUT, MY EAR HURTS REALLY BAD! :( I want to take some antibiotics now but won't be able to eat for an hour or so. Is this a bad idea?

My roommate also has some Ibuprofen. Should I take that instead? What if I take both? Is this a worse idea?

I'm going to be driving home today so I can't afford to be all woozy on medicine.

TQC, in the past six months, there have been several car break-ins in my neighborhood. My neighbor has been hit twice, and several people along the street have reported things as well. My friend from Chicago said that you're supposed to leave your door unlocked because it costs more to repair the damage if they break a window then what they steal (assuming you don't have valuables in the car).

Do you agree with this? Should I leave my car door unlocked, since I don't have a garage to park in?



Alternatively: What is the most you've had to pay in overdraft fees from your bank? Have you ever gotten them successfully reversed? Do you have any suggestions on how I can go about reducing FIVE of them to maybe one or two, with a big bank like Bank of America?

[kelj99]
If you were working someplace where lots of different people/departments/groups used your work (a lot of above and beyond your actual job description) but rarely gave you any credit for it, would you feel more or less secure in your job?

On the one hand, you aren't really being recognized for your work, which is a risk, but on the other hand, the people who use your work know that if you weren't there, they'd have nobody to do it for them.  But maybe they just assume they'll find somebody else???

Its all so confusing...

EDIT: To clarify, I added work that was "above and beyond"  I mean it in like a project sense.  You do the work, they get credit for the project sort of thing.  Or you get the data/make the slides and they present, etc...

I made an appointment today to get a Depo shot, and when I gave the receptionist my name she was all "OH HI IT'S YOU How are you? It's Tina!" etc etc. I assume I saw her at some point during my last visit, which was three months ago, but I have no idea who she is. I was just like "Oh hi!" (????)

Do the receptionists at your doctors offices remember you? It seemed really weird because I'm sure she must see tons of patients every day, and I only come in every three months, so why would she remember me? I know the receptionist at my dentist's office very well - I've been going there since I was born and she's Japanese and loves that I can speak Japanese with her, and she always brings me back a gift when she visits family in Japan. But I have no such connection with this receptionist!

Do you have any family members that get on your nerves or you just dont like but you should love?

Mine would have to be a grandma of mine. I love her but most of the time I really dont like who she is. Shes an angry old lady who comments on everyone elses flaws. She has commented on my jeans being too dirty looking and asked if I washed them. (this was in highschool, when worn lucky *the brand* jeans were in. I should have known better than spending $80 on pants to impress her) She also told my step mom she shouldnt cut her hair so short because it makes her look fatter. She always comments on how my step mom isnt right for my father (even 10ish years later), also did these comments with my real mother. She is just a negative nancy and it makes it where I cant stand being around her for longer than 30 minutes.

So who is that family member for you?
If you dont have a family member that you can think of, then maybe a friend?
Edit:: Also, if you could tell me why you dont like them.

So I picked up my mom to go get her car from the shop, and as we said goodbye she made her usual kissy face and I gave her a peck goodbye.

It's the first time that it's crossed my mind how awkward this may or may not look in public. It's not uncommon for me to kiss her goodbye after visiting her at home.

I often give my mom a peck on the lips, but usually just a peck on the cheek with my dad. I'm 20 years old.


Do you kiss your parents goodbye? Lips or cheek?

Do you think this is odd/gross/weird? For moms and daughters? Dads and daughters? Moms and sons?

How old are you? Up until what age do you think this is not acceptable?


ETA: Your answers make me smile. I don't know why I ever had a doubt. :)

During a job interview have you ever had a company do a back check on you?

Is it a good thing to have one done on you or a bad thing for a future job?

The company I interviewed for today is doing one on me, I'm not concerned about it as I don't have a criminal record. I am curious though to know if it's a good sign or a bad sign that they're doing one on me, as this is the first time I've had a potiental employer do one instead of a volunteer organization doing it.

I just told my mom that I'm seeing Brian Wilson on concert on Sunday, and she told me I "met" him when I was 2. My family was flying to Hawaii, and got bumped up to first class, where Brian Wilson was. My mom said the entire flight he stared at her, drank a lot, and repeatedly insulted her for having a baby in first class. She said at one point, he asked her to sit in the bathroom with me.

Lately (Today and yesterday) I've had this weird feeling in my jaw and I have no idea what it's from or what it means.

It's hard to explain, but it kind of feels like the jaw muscles/muscles in my cheeks are tense/tight. Kind of like when you're stresed and can feel your neck tensed up or something.
Yesterday I got a migraine (it wasn't too bad, but still hurt) and today my head still hurts a little. Could it be related? Anybody have any idea what this is? It's kind of weird, and pretty uncomfortable.

What, in your opinion, is the best kind of music for a party? Does the music depend on the location? eg if you're in a backyard, on the beach, whatever.

Do you still sleep with a stuffed animal, blankie or other 'comfort object'? Does it have a name? Do you think you'll ever stop sleeping with it?

So I found a new apartment that I can start moving into tomorrow. I have until the end of this month to move out of my old place. I don't have a car, so I can't really do it myself unless I use the bus and subway (or take the subway and walk across Manhattan). Do I:

-Wait for someone who has a car to come help me (could be a few weeks)
-Start taking a suitcase full at a time, starting with my bedding so I can start staying there tonight (I'm buying the bed from my friend who is moving out, so its already there I just need a pillow & blanket)
-Use cabs (about $12 each way with tip)
-Some other alternative I haven't thought of.

What should I do, TQC?

The shirt question below made me think of this...I've been meaning to search for a couple days.

I'm having a hell of a time finding bras that fit me properly, I'm usually sized at a 32 band size variable cup sizes. My issue is with the cups being too big or small. A 34C is too small. A 34D is a little too big. A 32D is too small.

Where do you buy your bras? Where do you get sized? What size do you think I am (more perspective 5'4" 130lbs)?

OK so here is my confusion...

Ive known this guy for over a year and a half, and over the summer we started to hang out a lot more than we used to. He and I have become best friends. In October we started to become really close.. leaning on each other while sitting on the sofa, me putting my legs on him, giving head massages etc.. (harmless).. By the end of October we fully cuddle sober or drunk. When we drink together I usually spend the night, and nothing sexual ever happens, but we spoon and completely cuddle the whole night. We never really talk about it, and dont give me a "hes gay" answer because I know he isn't. So today we're talking about how Im feeling insecure with the stability of our friendship and how its going because I feel like someone else is intruding (another friend).. he assures me nothing can change our 'friendship'..

he then continues to tell me that I am a completely different kind of friend that he is "EXTREMELY FOND OF ME". I ask.. what does that mean?? he replies...
"having a liking or affection for.. love; affection, cherished with strong and unreasoning feeling (dictionary stuff).. [but then continues] but its more than liking, its like to be fond of something you are so close to it, that it becomes emotional and awesome"

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!?! WHAT DOES 'FOND' MEAN TO YOU?? I HAVE NEVER USED THIS WORD.
