i don't want to be friends

(no subject)

The other day I was at my friend's house at a family gathering, and I was having a conversation with his mom and another friend of mine about scary movies. I had said Carrie was my favorite because it was funny and Carrie is such a relatable character. They both looked at me like I was crazy.

Am I?

My husband and I have been together for twelve years now!

I congratulate you!
I envy you!
I feel hostility toward you!
I take inspiration from your love!

Would you like to enjoy my cheese wheel?

Yes, please!
No, thank you!
Is this a metaphor?

Is it hilarious that I first typed, "...for twelve yars..." instead of years?

Fuck no
You're drunk

inspired by hajiomatic's post...

what is the most backhanded compliment you've ever received??
just your standard "such a pretty face" etc. my boss, however, delivered the best one ever to my office manager, after she got her pants hemmed:

"Wow Jen, you're not as fat as I thought you were!"

I have to rewrite a lab procedure out of a book and put it in 'my own words'. The text already puts it about as simply as it can be put- my words could only lengthen and complicate things.

To the fashion-savvy/couture-savvy, I'd just like to know which are the must-haves monthly issues of Vogue magazine. Would it be the september issue and...?

For the NYorkers or anyone who has lived/worked/studied there, how did/do you find it? Was/Is it a place worth moving for? I'm really interested because i'm about to graduate from university and have a job ready for me such that I may be able to apply for secondments in the future and NY's a place that I've been considering. It's gonna be a few years from now but it would be helpful to be able to have at least a vague end in mind.

Have you ever refinished hardwood floors? If so, any tips/tricks to make the stain and poly dry faster? Does it really take 8 hours for the stain to dry and 12-18 for the poly? Do I really need to wait 3 days before bringing my furniture back in?

Do you prefer carpet or wood flooring?

Are you the do it yourself type or the hire a handyman/contractor type when it comes to home remodeling/repairs?

The husband and I are totally remodeling our bathroom and putting new flooring in the kitchen. We were going to put laminate wood in the living room and hallway, but we found hardwood underneath the carpet.

We're in over our heads, y/y?

Anyone else still use a student checking account linked to your parents' account, even though you have already graduated from college or moved away etc?

I have been, and also they are a co-signer on my car, but I am trying to untangle myself from them because they have been making dumb financial moves lately and don't want to get dragged into the mess.

TQC, do you find that once you injure yourself, you seem to keep injuring the same spot?
I stepped on a nail on Sunday and have a great puncture wound on my right foot, I sprained my ankle and scraped my leg on Tuesday (right foot, again), and I just dropped a can of hairspray on a toe on my left foot.

Do you know where I got the subject of my post?
If not, I suggest you invest in a copy of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

I'm writing a series of speeches on same sex marriage for my Public Speaking class and my first speech is supposed to be strictly informative, (meaning we can only talk about facts, not our opinion) but writing about it impartially is turning out to be SO much harder than I thought.

Are there any topics that you would have a hard time talking/writing about impartially?

Blahh, so I have a graded flute performance at school today in an hour. Apparently, I'm supposed to have this paper filled out to give my audience/professors/graders, which I have done. However, my teacher never told me about it, I found out about it myself last night. I have it all filled out, but it asks for her signature, which I don't have (and she's busy watching other performances now). If I'm asked about the signature, is there any way I can say I "wasn't informed" about the paper without it sounding like an accusation against my teacher?

ETA: Oof, I should also mention that my teacher will be one of the people I'm playing for. And it would probably be bad taste to show up and ask for her signature. Unless she's "cooperative" and offers it right away...

help me file my taxes

I am filing my taxes online right now and I received student loans in 2009. Do I need to enter the amount I received somewhere in my return? I didn't see a section for loans, other than the question for "how much loan interest did you pay." Google is just confusing me and I can't pay $30 to "ask an expert."

SO, this morning I was rudely disturbed by a group of 3 people who claimed they were messengers from the prophet Jesus the Mother in Asia.

Whatever I'm usually pretty nice to people when they come to the door, regardless of what they are selling BUT
These people banged on the door & rang the doorbell for a good ten minutes, while screaming "HELLO, WE NEED YOU". When I still didn't answer (I was getting in the shower for fuck sakes), I heard the BACK doorbell ringing & them trying the door knobs & yelling into the back windows.

So I opened the damned door, and told them I wasn't interested & they kept going on. I tried to close the door & they pushed it open again, so I had to SLAM IT & lock it.

NOW, I can see them at my neighbours house doing the same thing .. They have walked into the GATED back yard & up onto the back deck.

SHOULD I CALL THE NON-EMERGENCY LINE AND REPORT THEM? While I know these people are probably harmless, they were TRYING to get into my house and they are trespassing on private property. The people across the street have dogs in thier back yard, what if they let them out?

there are people creepin around my neighbourhood claiming to be messengers of Jesus the Mother in Asia. They are going into peoples' backyards & trying to open doors. Should I call the non-emergency line?


Okay, I called & they said they would send someone.
I'm keeping an eye on the dogs as well, they're still in the backyard :)

"Dress for the Olympics day"

I work in an office with a business casual dress code, and my boss just sent out a company-wide email that said:

"To kick off the Olympics, we will be throwing away the dress code and having a "Dress for the Olympics day" tomorrow. No questions please - you can interpret that as you please."

How should I interpret this, TQC?

i am starting school on the 22nd. prior to this i just "got by" in school. after high school i just dinked around community college, when i didn't really want to be there, and developed really bad habits regarding studying and homework.

so my question to you is: do you have any little tips or tricks to keep you focused and not-falling-behind in school? aside from the obvious "study, do homework, and pay attention". i guess i'm looking for things to keep me organized and NOT forget things? any ideas?

i'm thinking of getting a planner/organizer/whatever you call them... so do you know of any that are any good ones specifically for using in school? or good ones that would be good for using in school? (if there's a difference, i honestly don't know) specific ones i could maybe find at target or walmart?

dk/dc: sorry, i can't think of another question for you ):

Worldly school projects

Yesterday I received a teddy bear in the post from my cousin's kid. The bear is meant to make his way to various interesting places outside of Canada. Each of the students in his class are doing this. Also, part of the instructions say to pass the bear on to someone in a different country if you have someone there that you know. You're to take pics of the bear and show him a good time. I think it's a kinda cool class project.

What was the most interesting class/school project you ever did?

Do you think, in this day and age, that there are people who truly do not know someone in another country?

Ambient noise..


I saw a post yesterday where someone was listening to RainyMood.com. Are there other websites like that with ambient noises, where it streams in a loop, for free? So far all I've found is SimplyNoise.com and that's just white noise and the like.

Edit: Also why am I getting like 8 emails for every 1 comment notification?

TQC, I'm having trouble deciding what to do with my life. I don't want to be a millionaire or anything, but I would like to end up with a career that is enjoyable and makes decent money. So, I thought I would ask you all, what do you do for a living? Do you like it? Are you paid well? If you don't like the job you have now, what are some things you think would be fun to do for a living?

I'm finally moving out of my noisy apartment in the next few weeks!

Have you ever hired professional movers? How much did it cost?

I can't find price quotes anywhere without having to register at a website or call a company and give them my personal information.

Do you have any tips or advice on moving? I'll probably just be renting a Uhaul or something and moving in batches. (My new places is only about 5 minutes away.)

Do you hate or love moving? For me, the manual labor sucks but I enjoy a new place and getting to rearrange my things and redecorate.

2. Ever shave another person? What were the circumstances?

4. Ever plant a chia pet? Which kind did you have, and how did it work out?

5. If a hetero couple has penis-in-vagina sex without a condom but with hormonal birth control, is that protected sex or unprotected sex? Are you amused by women who ask if they need to use Plan B after having sex while already on hormonal birth control, because the guy came inside?

What things (generally considered perfectly normal) fascinate you? How do you justify your fascination?

For as long as I can remember, I've been fascinated by seeing lefties use their dominant hand - especially to write. It used to blow me away, now I just feel a little mix of excitement, awe and envy. You would've thought I was watching someone... do something that was actually fascinating. Anyway, beyond the scope of "I'm a righty, so it's weird.", my justification is limited.
