How many rolls of toilet paper do you have stockpiled? How long do you anticipate your supply will last you? Is your brand one that is oh-so-pleasing to wipe across your backside, like you imagine clouds feel against the derrieres of the gods upon Mount Olympus after dropping their divine deuces into the Aegean Sea?

Does the sight of regularly-shaped things (bricks, softcover books, cans, boxes of Toblerone, bouncy balls, and so on and so forth) make you irrationally happy? Does feeling them—running your fingers over them, feeling every curve, every corner, every perfect angle slide across your sensitive flesh—make you giddy like a grammar school kid learning that today is a snow day?

If you had to travel down into a spooky, dark basement in a house you were unfamiliar with, what would you take to defend yourself with? Would you keep close by your side your fierce, faithful kitten, who fears nothing but the sound of a can opener coming and going without so much as a morsel of tuna being delivered to it?

Bad choices

What's more disgusting?

Banging your first cousin
Banging someone dressed like a border collie (furry)

Which would you rather do?

Pay $500 to play strip poker (one on one) with the celebrity of your choice
Get paid $500 to play strip poker (one on one) with Rush Limbaugh

What would you rather do?

Bury a dead crack whore in the Vegas desert by yourself
Have sex with a live crack whore...without protection

What tattoo would you rather get?

Six-pack on your abs (so it looks like you're in shape)
Sarah Palin's face as a tramp stamp

What would you sooner set fire to?

Every book you own (your entire library)
Every CD and DVD you own

TQC, I'm trying to scroll through my pictures I took at a concert tonight (SEE ICON OMG!), but for some reason, my windows' gallery thing is skipping 10 pics at a time...aka being a pain in the ass. Aside from getting a mac, what can I do to fix this?

How many concerts did you go to this year? Who was the headliner?
9 - Britney x2, Lady Gaga, Montgomery Gentry, Jake Owen, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Craig Morgan, U2

Any major concerts on your 2010 horizon?
Eric Clapton! Maybe Bon Jovi--idk. Most country concerts are announced closer to the date, so no idea there yet.

I just found out from my dentist that my wisdom teeth are 'coming in'. I have been petrified at the idea of wisdom teeth for ages, since all of my friends have gone through getting them removed (though i know that isnt always necessary) and it seems painful. I know they wont actually erupt or do much for probably a year or more, but im still worried :(

Can you tell me a story about wisdom teeth?Yours, your friends, anyones. Anything funny or really scary! Removing much they hurt you...when you got yours...

birth control

I'm looking to achieve a copper blonde shade similar to this, if a bit darker/browner. The problem is that I'm Asian, therefore have naturally black hair, and currently it's a very dark shade of red with brown highlights--so I'm guessing the only way I can achieve that is by bleaching it to a light blonde first, and then dyeing it again. However, I'd really rather not have to walk around for two weeks with blindingly blonde hair, since it wouldn't suit me very well, but at the same time, I know it's an intense process that could do some damage. :\ Still, when I went in to get my highlights done professionally, the stylist had to bleach them first, and added the colour right after, and everything was fine. My hair is generally pretty tough.

So, is it really a bad idea to do this in one sitting with box dye? I know they advise against it, but I also figure it's a different case for everyone. Thank you for the help. ♥

(PS: No opinion!comments on the colour itself, please. XD It's a pretty colour, gosh dang it, and I will achieve it someday.)

Edit: I know it's bad form to delete posts, but crisis pretty much averted. Received the advice I wanted from my sister, but thanks for all the opinions, guys!

Math problems suck


Two people are coming and all three of us are friends with each-other. One is coming to visit over New Years and has to be picked up at the airport at 8 AM on Dec. 31st. Another friend of mine has a layover in the same airport on the same day at 1 PM on the way to Australia. We all want to see each-other. I don't have a car, and it's three buses to Los Angeles airport. Renting a car is gonna cost $60 a day and most car places are closed for a couple days after New Years. I lost my job after I arranged this trip and can't afford a car for half a week. I only know two people with cars and neither are available.

What am I gonna do?

Are there any good websites (or books) that can help me brush up on certain concepts of Algebra and Calculus without actually having to go through an entire course? I need to take a math assessment for the university I'll be going to, and it's been at least 4 years since I've had an Algebra class. However, if I don't score 85-100 on the assessment, I have to either go through a month of tutoring sessions, or take 4 extra classes :(

A+ Refresher material?

I earned my A+ cert back in 2002, and well, some things have changed in the interim.

Are there any online courses or books I can pick up that are focused not on new A+ certs, but on older certs that want to brush up on the changes the IT world has seen recently?

Is it possible and worthwhile to retake the test so I have a more recent cert date? IIRC it doesn't technically expire, but I'm concerned that someone reviewing a resume listing a 2002 cert date and not much recent work in the field might not be too inclined to go with me. I'd have to spend a few days brushing up but I have no doubts about my ability to pass a retest.

Somewhat related. I've got a 14th edition of Upgrading and Repairing PCs. Does the current edition have enough new material to justify the purchase?

When was the last time you overheard someone saying something bad about you?

I just heard my mom gossiping my aunt about how bad my acne has gotten and I'm 'not right in the head'. Nice... Happy holidays to you to, mommy.

So, I have this friend..

No, really. One of my LJ friends wants help making a decision, TQC! You could change someone's life.

The facts:

-She was in a decently paying job, her husband is in dental school til 2010.
-She just got laid off. She got a one-month severance and wll now collect unemployment.
-They have $50k+ in the bank.
-They're also getting student loans for her dental-school-husband and could take out more.
-They were going to start trying to conceive a baby in March.

Poll #1505110 BB or no BB?

What should my LJ friend do?

Go ahead and try for a baby now since she's already not working
Wait until March like planned, get a job in teh mean time even though she'll have to quit eventually
Postpone having a baby a few years/a while until she's back employed for a while

stupid nye stuff

I have two choices on NYE. I could go to the Peabody or go to a board gaming party.

Pros for Peabody: traditional NYE. meet new people.

Cons: downtown parking will be insane. need to find someone to go with. Cost $40.

Pros for board gaming: SWEET! NOW I CAN PLAY THAT AGRICOLA EXPANSION! Know everyone; no payment involved.

Cons: Really? board gaming?

Will you decide for me?

Have you ever lost a significant amount of money? By significant, I mean like $100 or more. By lost, I mean everything from it having been stolen, losing your wallet, or making a stupid COSTLY mistake like I did last night that could totally have been avoided.

Last night, I locked myself out of my apartment. All of my roommates are gone for the holidays, and I live in a walk up in NYC so there was no lobby security or anything. I had no choice but to call a locksmith, and it cost me a whopping $369. FUCK.

So I have a friend who lives in another state. Me and my other friend decided to send the out-of-state friend a present for Christmas without him knowing. So I sent it last week and it got there yesterday but was delivered to his apartment complex's office.

Should I assume the office will let him know the package is there or is it possible they will expect him to come get it? He doesn't know we got him anything so I'm worried if he doesn't claim it it will be sent back. Should I try to find the office number and call them and find out what they're gonna do or just give it a little more time?

I think I'm being overly paranoid about this lol

A friend of mine from high school, whom I haven't spoken with since graduation, contacted me on facebook and said "we should hang out, blah, blah , blah,", then she sent me a bunch of text messages telling me bored she was and how much she was looking forward to us getting together this Wednesday(today).
So yesterday afternoon, I texted her asking her when and where we should meet up. But she hasn't responded.
I have no social skills as well as the infamous ~social anxiety disorder~, so I have no idea how to interpret this situation. Should I call her? Did she remember what I creep I was in high school and decided to ignore me? This is some game? I really have no idea what's going on and its kinda stressing me out.

I'm thinking of changing my hair. It's been exactly the same for 5 years.

It's relatively long with bangs, naturally straight but pretty thick, and dark brown/auburnish. It's in good condition and I'd like to keep it that way.

So I'm thinking of dying it. I don't want to do anything really drastic, and I was sort of thinking of dying the underneath or something kind of funky but subtle.

I don't know, really. So what should I do with my hair?

As scented candles go, which scent is your favorite? What company makes it?

For those of you with anosmia... which, um, scented candle's color is most pleasing to your eye?

For those of you with anosmia, total colorblindness, and full-body tactile anesthesia... wow. I'm... I'm really, really sorry to hear that.

My mom is looking to buy a new computer this year. She has always used macs, but only because my step-dad is a die hard mac guy and that was all we had.

I'm trying to convince her to get a PC. My reasoning:
-You will get a lot more for your money (she is not rich, she tells me this all the time)
-Her needs are simple- a PC will do everything she could want or need in the foreseeable future.
-More people will be able to help her with PC issues (including myself and my PC tech boyfriend)
-There are more classes and training opportunities (like adult-ed at our local community college)

She wants a mac and only a mac. Her reasoning:
-Her limited computer skills are mac specific
-The mac store has tutorials
-She will get a teacher discount (and save a few hundred tops)
-She can make a web-site and fliers (apparently this can't be done on a PC)
-She can take a computer skills class and just apply it to the mac (she is easily confused at little computer things- I think this sounds like a terrible idea)

Her main goals for the year are to create a website for her small business and start doing more business stuff with a computer.

Who is in the right? How can I convince her that a PC is what she needs right now?

ETA: She asked me to help her pick one out

obtaining a permit in Massachusetts

Ok, gun-toting Massholes, this goes out to you:

How difficult was it to receive your gun permit within the state of Massachusetts? Once obtained, does it require renewing? I'm talking recent applications, after the whole FID card thing was done away with (which was over 10 years ago, at least).

BYOB etiquette

I'm going to a small New Year's Eve gathering tomorrow, and it's BYOB. I bought a bottle of Yellowtail Bubbles (a sparkling Rose wine). I'm just worried that I'll be expected to share with others, and only end up with a single glass for myself. It's not so much that I mind sharing, but I'd really like to enjoy more than a single glass.

So, will people drink all my wine? How do I go about ensuring that I'll get more than a glass?

(I normally don't bring wine to BYOBs so I'm not sure how this works!!)

Let's say you're the parent of an 18 year old college freshman. Your daughter brings home her brand new 20 year old (first ever) boyfriend of a month and a half. He seems like a nice enough guy, but is kind of shy around you for obvious reasons. Your daughter has made it clear that she wants to sleep in her bed with him overnight - door closed, lights off, that's all she wrote - and will probably pitch a whiny shit fit if she doesn't get her way. (The boy would most likely be fine left to fend for himself in a bed alone for one night).

There is also an 8 year old sibling in the house in the room next door, if that influences your decision at all.

Ok, TQC.. I'm an idiot.

I've been on Yasmin birth control for four years and for the first time ever, I messed up!

Sometime last week, I took 2 pills in one day and I was having sex all week. I realized I'd doubled up on Thursday ! 10pm (which is when I ALWAYS take my pills), so I didn't take a pill that night but instead took Friday's very early- at 3pm. -- the doubling up must have happened either Tuesday or Wednesday night.

I took Saturday's pill on time, and have been taking them like normal and perfectly since.  I am so used to not even worrying about this, that I had sex yesterday. I am now spotting, and my period is supposed to start this coming Monday.

Did I do the right thing with the pill?
Why do you think I'm spotting?

Psychology and quizes?

Probably about 3 years ago, I met someone once and we had a conversation about psychology. He had this book and it had a lot of small quiz's in it. You would answer small questions and it would then tell you something about yourself.. I would love to find a book like this, and also find out what its called.

EXAMPLE "If you saw an ex or one night stand you would a. b. or c. I picked wave and say hello" It then told me something like "You arent embarrassed to confront people whether they are your life time friend or a one night fling, you will always say hello" We didnt talk about it to much but it was always listed in questions of situations.
Does anyone know anything about this book or type of characterizing?

If more than one sibling of the same sex, would they all be in your wedding party?

Or would it not be an issue and you would a)have them in your wedding party, no hesitation or b)they wouldn't even be a consideration?

My sister is getting married and we had already agreed we would be each other's maid of honor. I just talked to a girl who doesn't think someone should be in your wedding party just because they're your sister but I guess it's because I'm fairly close with mine that I'd want her to stand for me.

A man walks up to you and offers you 750 million dollars (or whatever your local currrency is) if you agree to become a recluse in the country for ten years. You cannot leave your estate ever. The estate has plenty of trails for walking and exercise and you receive enough money for living expenses and a little left over for entertainment. You cannot have face to face contact with anyone except the person who buys your necessities (food, drink, clothes, household goods), runs errands, and pays your utilities, the mail carrier, and the handyman. You are also not allowed to use a computer or mobile phone to contact anyone. You will only receive the money upon completion of your tenth year as a recluse.

I don't play a lot, mostly because I don't have a lot of time and I don't do well with anything complicated lol. I like things like games, puzzles, harvest moon and so on. I don't like star wars, shooting games, sports and so on.

Is there anything for me?? Please?

I just got my birth control prescription filled a few days ago, it was three months worth. I had it in my purse... my purse was stolen last night. Will they give me it again without me being three months short at the end of the year?

I can only get the prescription at a years worth at a time, and can only go once a year to my gyno to get another years worth.
Is this making sense?

Has this ever happened to you before? Should I talk to the pharmacist or someone at the doctors office? I need this for the whole year, not just 9 months worth D:

Can I just go to planned parenthood and get a prescription from them and avoid the police? And have enough to last the year?
Don't judge me.

Your brother tends to have no courtesy when it comes to common manners/respect. He is visiting from out of town and you are letting him use your bathroom (as in the one attached to your fucking room). You come home and notice the towel you've been using for 3 or 4 days is hung funny. You approach him and he casually giggles and says "oh I've been using that the entire time you've had it hung up." You're really mad because you know he knows that it's OBVIOUSLY YOURS. Then he adds "I wiped my butt with it some, too." AND LAUGHS MORE. He thinks it's fucking hilarious!

So you've been drying yourself with your brother's fucking shit for three days. How do you react? Keep in mind there are both toilet paper and literally 20 other clean towels to use.

What was the last thing one of your siblings did that really annoyed you?

My brother called me a couple of hours ago, asking where he could get cardboard boxes because he's moving soon. I told him to go to a self storage place and he was all, ".....Yeah, maybe. Anyway can you ask Mum to call me when she gets home?"
And now my mum's just called him, and given him EXACTLY the same advice I did about the boxes and he's all, "Oh yeah I hadn't thought of that, thanks!"

For those of you without siblings - are you happy to be an only child, or would you rather have a brother or sister?

I've been wondering this for a while and the posts about restraining orders reminded me of it.

Is there a difference between a restraining order and an order of protection? I tried googling it and most of the stuff I found says they're the same thing, just different names. But people have told me they're different and that an order of protection is "less serious".

I'm hoping to move to Ireland from the UK for a few months/weeks this summer on a working holiday. While I have family members living in the city I would like to live, I don't feel like I can encroach on them. I'm a student so saving now isn't really an option.
So, how do I earn money to get me there and to pay rent/a hostel bill for the first few weeks?

Have you gone on a working holiday? How did you fund it?
