Someone says they're really worried about someone, perhaps they've gone missing for a few days, and please, keep them in your prayers. The person in question shows up again a few days later, with no harm done to them and confused about the fuss. Someone responds saying "Oh it's so great they were fine! Power of prayer!! :D"
... see, I think it's more you prayed and panicked unnecessarily there (other than making yourself feel better), not that the prayer made them safe... retroactively (if that's the right term). I get that it was a good result. But did prayer keep them safe if you started praying two days after they went 'missing'?
I get if it's been someone who's been kidnapped and you know that something bad has happened, then perhaps, if you were religious, it makes sense to say it was the power of prayer.
If you're religious, do you have that sort of understanding of 'the power of prayer'?
Is it similar to my friend refusing to open letters before she blows on them for 'good luck' as if it would change the content of the letter that she's already got in her hand? (used to really confuse me).
If you don't know, what are some weird good luck superstitions some of your friends use?
DK/DC, when's the last time you cleaned out your closet?
ALSO, my friend always asks me why I don't like to hang out at her house, and why I don't like to third wheel it with her and her sister. First of all, I don't like to third wheel, and while I can typically dodge her question with that response, she seems to be pressing more and more. While the thirdwheel thing is true, her sister is also a huge bitch and I don't want to spend any more time than necessary with her. How do I get out of hanging out with them?
( Collapse )
DK/DC - what are some of your favourite emoticons? I am fond of :D, >:C and :I
ETA Pfffhahaha, sorry about that. You guys told me pretty much what I already knew but didn't want to hear. Thanks <3 :)
do you keep your food quarantined on your plate or mix it all up?
do you eat all of one thing first, or do you eat a little bit of everything in rotation?
My mom would always joke 'well it doesn't have a price tag it must be free!'. Well when I was five I took it a little too literally and grabbed a toy from somewhere. When my mom found out she flipped and drove all the way back to the store to return it and apologize. I also thought the only things you could buy in the store were the things on sale (I didn't know the difference between on/for sale). My mother was a die hard bargain hunter.
What do you think?

That being said, what kind of cellphone should I get? I'm on Verizon.
What did you do with your pet(s) once they died? I know a lot of people bury them, some cremate, etc. My cats are getting older and I've never had a pet die so I really don't know what I'm supposed to do afterward. :(
(i know you'll probably just say "cut them out" but i'm sure some of you maybe know where i'm coming from, and that just "cutting them out" isn't as easy as it sounds. i have two guys i just want out of my life.)

2) What would you pick to be your Mer/Centaur name?
Most of you also reminded me of my awful self-esteem which came through when I was explaining the situation.
So my next question is how do you feel better about yourself? Whether it's just to feel better about yourself, or maybe after a break-up or whatever... what do you do? I've gained a little bit of weight recently, and although I'm nowhere near overweight, I don't feel great so I think I might start working out again... but is there anything else I can/should do?
What would/do YOU do to boost your self-esteem?
Is there any feel-good-about-yourself upbeat songs that you like to listen to with a "I deserve better than you" theme? Will you share them with me?

Do you freak out and call them every 5 minutes or do you let them call on their own time because their schedule is special and yours isn't?
EDIT: Not me!!!! :) I just don't get the people who ARE like that. My BF is gone a week and people are giving me SYMPATHY that I just don't understand. I also have a friend who won't visit longer than a day or two because she "can't be away from her husband that long".
I am currently working full time and enrolled in Chemistry A and Sociology 1. Chem A is a not-for-credit prerequisite course for Chem 1a, which is general chemistry. I need to take Chem 2a, which is inorganic chemistry specifically for nursing, physical therapy, dental hygiene, etc majors.
I feel like it might prepare me a bit more for the next "real" chemistry class I take, even though it's not really geared towards that specific branch of chemistry... But I work late at night and I have to get up very early in the morning for the class. It's the first week and I'm still struggling just to get the small amount of homework done so I'm considering just focusing on Sociology this semester and taking more classes next year when I don't have to work as much.
What do you think?
And anyone else working full time while going to school? How many courses are you taking?
Don't have classes: how is your Monday so far? What have you accomplished today?

ETA: my flatmates are playing their music very loudly with the doors wide open. Sound travels VERY well in this flat. Considering my other flatmate was in a pretty bad car crash yesterday, this is pretty selfish, yes?
So I tried this last night because I'd been up till 2am, but had to get up about 6 for work. So I set my alarm for 6:10 and banged my head 6 times. Then I woke up very suddenly without my alarm going off, and I checked the time and it was EXACTLY 6 o'clock!
Has anyone else heard of this?

Basically, I was supposed to go on a field study trip to Africa but a bunch of stuff fell through therefore it is no longer happening.
I have the money saved, and blah blah blah I want to go on a trip with it to celebrate graduating college, but I've heard some mixed reviews about Contiki's.
Any sort of opinion would be great :)
i've googled and it doesn't sound like just another case of dehydration...the symptoms don't match up. do you think the weed was laced with something? and if so, what do u think it was? i smoked only one cone and was alright, my brother was stoned but not disoriented. we've both smoked up for years but never passed out from it.

basically i got a job at a fine dining restaurant and i was told to study up on how to serve alcoholic beverages. what to ask when someone orders a martini, etc. i don't drink so really i have no clue. any bartenders or fine dining servers here who could point me in the right direction? any books you could suggest picking up? i'm not really concerned with how to actually make the drink because the bartender will be doing that (the knowledge couldn't hurt, but-)... more of how to present and what to ask for.
is fine dining a pain in the ass or easier than serving at a family restaurant?

If the grocery store employees bagged your deli meat in the same bag with two loaves of bread and you didn't notice it and the meat got left out on the counter for hours hiding under the bread, would you throw it away and buy more or take it back and explain what happened and ask for an exchange/refund? bad_service or customer_suck?
eta: it's ok, bbs! i'm not taking it back! I threw it away as soon as I noticed it; I was just asking because my husband said to take it back, but I'm not gonna.

I get my hair highlighted on a sort of 8-10 week schedule. I'm getting pretty close to needing to get it done (7 weeks), but I'm going on a cruise in 3 weeks and when I get back it'll have been 11 weeks.
Should I get my hair done before I go or wait until after? If I spend a week lying in the sun is it going to fade/discolor/otherwise mess up my dye job?
Guys: How soon would you want to know? Would you want your girlfriend to tell you before she takes a test, or wait until she knows for sure?

If you don't want to play along and don't really have a dog,, will you tell me something good about your day? Doesn't have to be a big thing... just something that made you smile? :)
What was the last thing that made you feel guilty? Why?
Who was your last inappropriate crush?
I am not good with these sort of things.
I know its only monday night, should I give him more time (in case he's with family) or should I just send something saying "hello"? I kinda want to just see that he's alright but I have NO idea what to say. He doesn't talk about his feelings and I don't want to be or come off as intrusive :/
So what should I send him, since I already gave him my condolences?
Or should I just leave him alone? How long should I not bother him, if that's the answer?
ETA: Thanks everyone for your suggestions, I bundled all your advice up. I let him know I'm here if he needs anything. He said he's not really talking to anyone and he pretty much broke my heart (for him). He just needs some space, I'd probably be the same way. But thank you all, you made me much less awkward than I would have been.
So far I'm thinking about a garage sale or jambalaya sale (maybe at the same time).
If so, does it bother you?
Do you have Wii Fit?
Is it awesome?

I'm 5'4/165. I want to lose twenty to twenty-five pounds over the following year. I already walk about a mile or two every day. My diet's a little unhealthy, and I'm working on that. What other exercise would you add to get someone totally out of shape looking and feeling a bit fitter?
pros: will give me something to do. it's the first day of school.
cons: will most likely drop the classes i have scheduled & switch schedule around. it'll be cold. i'm not sure i'm up for it.
if you don't care: what's your favorite form of exercise? (yoga, boxing, treadmill, etc)
do you have a pair?
if so, which style/colour?
if not, would you consider buying some?
i'm in a club at my college. we plan a lot of events and lately, there has been a lot of "attacking" of ideas and putting down other people. i'm really tired of all of this back and forth. i want to get rid of all this unnecessary bickering but i feel bad because they would be short a person and someone else just left approximately a month ago (for other reasons).
should i leave?
have you ever been in this sort of position?

I had a big day planned for tomorrow (Australia Day) and now my best mate has bailed on me. We were suppose to have a bbq then go out to the club for the arvo while we waited for our other mates to get back from the beach. But my best mate just called me & said he'd come over for the bbq but isn't coming out with me.
I'm guessing it's because he went out tonight & got drunk with the money he was suppose to use for our alcohol tomorrow, seeing as I bought a $50 slab of beer & 2 packs of smokes for us last week!
And the rest of my friends are going to the beach for the day & I really don't want to go because I don't feel comfortable being surrounded by a bunch of blonde beach bunnies looking gorgeous while I sit there at 115kg (250lbs) in my swimmers.
SO NOW I'M ALL SAD & TEARY & FEEL LIKE SHIT CAUSE I'M SICK OF HIM BAILING ON ME & I'M SICK OF FEELING LIKE A HORRIBLE FAT ASS & I'M TRYING NOT TO CRY WHICH IS BEING IRRATIONAL!!
UGH, CAN YOU TELL ME THAT HE'S A DOUCHEBAG & TELL ME A FUNNY STORY OR SOMETHING?! PLEASE?
