Do you experience completely irrational rage?

I'm talking about fine one minute, then hissing/spitting rage with no provocation whatsoever.

I'm a small, very girly, nerdy, educated human being. I sometimes experience such fits of random rage, to the point where all I can think about is realistically hurting myself or others (but have never acted upon these feelings).

If you have these feelings, how do you handle them?

(I am in therapy, so no need to suggest it, I'm just curious about other personal experiences.)

In may I'll be having a Photography show at a local coffee shop. I am going to have about 14 photos on the walls for a month. I am still picking out the photos but thinking ahead, I'm trying to decide on how big to print them. Is 8x10 or 10x15 better? or would you go bigger or smaller? Should I number my prints like the edition like you would if it was a painting or drawing? And how much do you think I should charge? I've never done this before, all I currently sell is greeting cards and recipe on etsy, so I'm not sure of how much they should be priced at? Have you ever had a show? How'd it go? Did you sell anything? DId you have an opening? What did you do at the opening?

Say you and your partner are around 25. Married, no kids.

Would you be ok with them holding a job that consisted of them living 20 days away from you, 8 days with you?
Its not plausible to visit them, but you have phones/laptops with cameras-and you have a job, of course. They also have a vacation period where they are at home for say, three weeks in December, and two months in the summer.

If the job was 2 years long? 5 years long? 10 years long?

Edit:They love the job, and make a sex six figure income from it. Its possible for them to get a local job for a decent amount of money (say, about 2/3rds of what theyd make) but they enjoy it less.

I need to make baby shower invitations. I have never made invitations before in my life. Does this sound half decent?(I got most of the wording from VistaPrint). Are there any glaringly obvious mistakes that I should know about before I send them out to 30 people?

Under here.Collapse )

She's not registering anywhere, so I don't need to include that, I don't think. Now, me and Paula are hosting the shower together. I don't need to say "Please RSVP to Paula at (604) 280-4444 or Rebecca at (604) 280-4445" do I? Is it too confusing if the shower is at Rebecca's house, but you're calling Paula to say if you're attending?

Do you have any ideas of anything cuter than "We hope you can make it!"?

Will you help me think of a good wedding present?

My boyfriend's brother is getting married in Las Vegas in 2 weeks. It will be a present from both of us and we plan to spend $50-$100. His brother and future wife currently live with his dad, so most household items don't apply. Obviously a gift card would be the best idea, but I'd like to be a little more creative, since it's a small wedding and they won't be getting many gifts.

What would you want if someone was giving you a present? I'd probably want the damn gift card...

We're not having the most by-the-book wedding so we haven't done much research by the way of wedding traditions, so I wasn't sure if this is a common thing to do.

1. Any ideas for a wedding day gift?
2. Is this something you have done or seen done at other weddings? If so, what was the gift?

My apartment's lease expires in August, but the landlord said we have to renew it now if we're going to. We don't want to renew it, so from now until we move out in August at any time, any day, they might be bringing people in without warning to view the apartment. So in order to move out, we have to give up 5 months of privacy. I've heard of two incidences of them walking in on people in the shower to show the bathroom.

Is this typical? Is this just something to be expected when you rent? Our landlord does a TON of shady practices so I wouldn't be surprised if 5 months of surprise visits isn't normal when renting.


Also, how can I get an mp3 on my laptop onto my phone to be a ringtone? Thanks!

Have you/do you know anyone who has voluntarily let their car get repossessed? How does that work?

Tonight the Board of Directors at the college I work at is meeting to vote on who gets laid off. Word has it that while my job position should be safe, I still could/would get the boot (since I've only been here 6 months) and someone with seniority would get my job.

It fucking sucks and I'm working on some financial plans in case it does happen.

What really sucks is that this time last year, the husband lost his job at the Circuit City warehouse.

Our luck fucking sucks, y/y?

I'm selling my hair on a website of other people selling their hair. The site's certainly full of fetishists, since offering the buyer the chance to do the actual cutting makes the average going rate increase tenfold. I'm okay with this, though my hair is already cut and will get less.

My trouble is this email I've gotten. He first sent me an email inquiring whether the hair was still for sale and what my highest offer so far was. I said it was still for sale and that I'd listed it less than 24 hours ago so I just had one offer -- $210.

His answerCollapse )

Trying to scam me? Trying to stalk me? Fetishist typing with one hand, unaware of how skeevy his email is sounding? Note that my city/state/country are already included in the auction information.

Also, talking to a friend about it --He says if he had long hair he could probably sell it, and he as a man would be okay selling cutting privileges to a woman, but if he imagines being a woman he doesn't think he'd be comfortable selling cutting privileges to a man.
Would this freak you out, selling your hair to someone going to get off on it(going price around $200)? How about letting them cut it($2000)?

Edit: I know a lot of people choose to donate their hair. I choose not to, since my money is very tight right now. If you want to donate your hair, I applaud that -- Though I'd recommend not Locks of Love, actually, since they don't seem to get a lot done with it. see: http://www.squidoo.com/locksoflove
Pretend I'm selling furniture or something that doesn't come with an automatic pressure to donate it.

You're leaving a hospital after visiting a friend. Just as you're walking out the door, you see a crumpled $20 bill on the ground. You're surrounded by people, but no one is paying attention to you, and it is unlikely anyone would notice you pick it up.

Do you swoop down and pick it up, or do you just leave it there?

Or do you pick it up, wave it around, and yell "Did anyone lose $20?!" and wait for someone to claim it?

I was drooling over this cardi earlier together and it was a ridiculous price. then I checked it just now, and it's less than half price. all together it's 19.50 pounds to ship to Australia... should I get it or not? purchase another item to make it worth it?

edit: it works out to be 32.40AUD all together, which is cheaper than most cardigans here.

1. I'm trying to find out how much protein I should be getting. Some sources online are saying 24-30 grams. Others go up to say 72 as a minimum, or even 99. Does anyone here actually know the proper amount range? Can anyone enlighten me? Maybe even explain some of this?

If you keep track, about how much protein do you have a day?

2. Separate photography related question:
I have a camera with a screw mount. It's been hellish trying to find a zoom lens. I've come across plenty of adapters...but are there adapters for a screw-mount camera to a different-mount lens? Any help appreciated.

My step daughter has come down with something awful. She coughs all the time and then throws up everything in her tummy and then cries and coughs. I took her to the doctors and got perscriptions for her cough (tylenol with codine) and something for the ear infection that I thought she had but wasn't sure about. So far she is taking a nap but she wakes up, coughs a lot, vomits, crys and holds me, and then goes back to sleep. Do you think this is going to go away sooner or later? She crys after she throws up and it is killing me. How do all of you with kids deal with them being sick?

What do you like to eat when you are sick? I'm thinking of making her grilled cheese and tomato soup for dinner if she can eat it.

Should I play the sims while she is cuddling up next to me? I can't leave her because she just pukes without really saying anything and I need to catch it in a bowl and keep handing her juice.

Whats your favorite kids show? Or show from when you were a kid.

Any ideas about where I can look (in person) for cheap picture frames in semi-unusual sizes?

I just want the cheapo black frames they sell at Target or whatever, but Target doesn't sell those sizes. Most of the places I know of to buy frames are fancypants framing stores that don't sell cheap frames. I know the sizes exist in cheap form, because I've found them on amazon and whatnot, but shipping is really expensive on frames so I'd rather buy them in person if possible.

sooo TQC where can I find a large variety of cheap frames? Chains? Types of stores to look for?

What are you annoyed with?
THIS POS USB KIT I JUST BOUGHT THAT WON'T CONNECT TO MY PRINTER! And because I opened it Walgreens won't let me take it back. I have to SHIP IT OFF TO GE TO GET A REFUND!
It says "100%" compatible with all USB devices.", so I wasn't wrong to think it would work with my printer, right? It's one of those doohickeys with 6 adapters on it so it would work with my digital camera and shit, too.

What are you excited about?
I have a follow up interview less than 48 hours after my initial interview for a well sought-after position that is my dream job for what I could realistically get right now without a degree. And I need my printer to work so I can, you know, print out a list of references if they need one. Eep!

What is your current favorite quote?

I'm torn between a couple...

1. "All God does is watch us and kill us when we get boring. We must never, ever be boring."
—Chuck Palahniuk


2. She’s not the type of girl to wait by the phone, she won’t cry, she knows it’ll get her nowhere, she’ll laugh a lot and often, and she will live her own life. She would like you to be a part of it, but she will do just fine without you.

3. Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
— Steve Jobs

Yet again, all about my sick step daughter.

She has been sleeping since 3pm when we got home. She wakes up, coughs, vomits, wants juice, goes back to sleep. She hadn't thrown up for about an hour and I thought "hey, we are in the clear!". She got up, let me change her diaper, said she felt much better, then filled the bowl with puke. This is a mixing bowl, it isn't small, and this tiny three year old filled it to the brim. Should I take her to the emergency room? It would be a far drive, with the possibility of her tossing her cookies in my car, but I don't want her to get dehydrated and nothing is staying down. Am I just being the scared step mom?

tl;dr How sick is sick enough to go to the emergency room? We are talking a kid with the flu possibly.

Please distract me with gifs? I'm freaking the fuck out about her.

UPDATE! I called the on call nurse, and she said to just watch her. Same thing the doctor said when we took her earlier today. WHAT IS WITH THESE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS?

Do you support a law that would mandate any driver who is found guilty of a DUI or DUI-related offense to have their vehicle fitted with an Ignition Interlocking Device (IID, a.k.a a breathalyzer for your car)?

Yes
48(41.4%)
No
10(8.6%)
Possibly, depending on the severity of the DUI-related offense committed
24(20.7%)
Possibly, but only repeat offenders
32(27.6%)
What's an IID?
2(1.7%)

Do you support a law that would mandate all modern vehicles should be fitted with a mandated Ignition Interlocking Device, so that anyone who purchases a new car will have them installed, regardless of their prior driving history, and not have the option of removing them?

Yes, it will have a significant impact on the number of drunk driving-related incidents
9(7.6%)
No fucking way, I don't condone treating people as if they are all potential criminals
75(63.0%)
Maybe, but it sounds a bit overkill
25(21.0%)
Unsure
9(7.6%)
Seriously, WTF is an IID?
1(0.8%)


#2, btw, is something MADD is trying to pass through legislation to make in mandatory for all new vehicles to come standard with a IID that car buyers do not have the option of removing.

For those who don't know what an IID is, Wikipedia has a pretty decent article explaining what it is and what it does.

I'm going to have a giant housewarming party in a few weeks. The goals are to 1) show off my new house and 2) get all my friends drunk, as usual. I was going to put "no gifts" on the invite just to emphasize that it's a casual thing, but tonight I got another idea to just put on there: "No need to buy us a gift. But if you really want to give us something to express your congratulations, you're welcome to wrap up something from around your place that you don't want anymore." What do you think, cool idea? Think we'll end up with some neat stuff? Will people think I'm fun? Or is "no gifts" still the most friendly non-greedy way to throw yourself a party?

What rules of thumb do you use when dressing for an interview?
I've always stuck by "dress two steps above the position", but someone on another community is telling the rest of the community in "advice for interviewing" to "Look like you're going to work there when you go in to get interviewed. If you're applying for a job at a gardening center, don't wear a suit!" and I'm like OH NO GURRRL, but maybe I'm wrong? The only places I've heard you're supposed to look like you will when you work there is for construction jobs (because most of the time, after an interview, you may be sent to a work site) and for retail jobs like Hot Topic where your ~*creativity*~ and image are a big part of the job itself.
