What are you finding it difficult to remember to do lately?

It's hot as fuck in my room for some reason and I'm constantly almost walking out to the kitchen/living room without pants on, something I don't think my suitemates would appreciate.

Have you ever gotten into an argument with a server at a restaurant? If so, will you explain what happened?

I was having dinner at an upscale Italian restaurant earlier this evening and I ordered a salad with Italian dressing. I asked the waiter if it was a vinaigrette or a creamy dressing. He told me it was vinaigrette. What he ended up putting in front of me looked something like this but thicker. I questioned him about it and told him that I thought he said it was a vinaigrette type of dressing. His response: "It IS". I was like, "No.. It's not." He kept insisting he was right and I finally said, "Look, the point is I don't like it, whatever it is, and I would like something else, please. Can I get soup instead?" Him: "No, I'll leave you with the salad." Wow.

[EDIT] Yes, I did speak to the manager but he didn't seem to take me very seriously. His response was "I'll take care of it" and didn't seem bothered by the server's behavior at all. Needless to say I won't be returning anytime soon. Or ever.

What's a good way you've discovered to get rid of bacne? (Acne on the back)
I wash my face and back daily, and while my face clears up except before my period, my back just seems to be constantly breaking out. I wear shirts that cover it and wear my hair up mostly, so I don't think that's it, but I'm SO sick of it, and I don't know what to do, especially with the world heating up around me, getting ready for summer.

Thanks in advance!!! :)

So, my friend is here complaining about her whole body itching and she's breaking out in these little red dots. I've already looked on WebMD for her and I couldn't find anything, so I'm turning here to see if anyone may have an idea.

These little dots are appearing all over her body, but not in huge patches and not a lot at once, they're very small and aren't really showing up in specific areas other than her sides, chest and back. They're just everywhere in general. She says they're only prickly, sting and burn when she scratches but otherwise, they're just really itchy and annoying.

I know this isn't incredibly in detail, but there's only really so much I write...

Does anyone have any suggestions to what they may be? I'm not ruling out chickenpox, but I doubt that's what they are. I'm thinking it's a heat rash or maybe just an allergic reaction from all the funky weather.

This XKCD comic is blowing my mind. I had no idea that other people had the "driving from the backseat of the car" dream!

Have you ever had this dream?
What about the "teeth falling out" dream?

I feel like when my hair is shorter, I'm more bubbly and outgoing..and when my hair is longer I feel more introverted and pensive..When I have a fro I feel very flamboyant haha.
Am I totally weird?  Do you think this is because of how I see myself in the mirror?

If you felt this way, would you base your hairstyle on the way it affects you?

If your SO admitted to you that as of late, he/she does not find you physically attractive, what would you do?

Would you chalk it up to "it happens" and leave the relationship?
Would you try and improve your appearance in hopes that he/she finds you appealing once again?

Would there be lengthy discussions involved?

Do your answers change in regards to the following parameters?

your SO is your husband/wife
your SO is your husband/wife AND you have children together

(Meaning, it's obviously somewhat easier to exit a relationship from a boyfriend/girlfriend vs. extricating yourself from a marriage/family.)

How come no one has developed a website where you make a list of TV shows that you like and dislike, you rate how much you like or dislike them, which then generates a list that you can like or dislike until you get really good recommendations?
Kind of like that site that does it with baby names? ( )
Is there a site like this that I haven't managed to find?
If not, anyone want to develop one? Surely that would make you $, and I could watch good tv.

What is that word?

TQC, will you help me remember a word?

 long time ago Webster Online sent me a word of the day (I love it, what can I say?) that was the name for when people only give off part of an expression. For example:

When in Rome...

Even a broken clock...

Speak of the devil...

Leaving off the end of the quote because, well, everyone knows it and such. Anyway, there's a word for when people do this and it's driving me crazy trying to remember it!

Do you know it?

Omnivore survey... veg types can answer too of course.

1) How many times have you eaten meat so far this week?
2) Is that about average, more than average, or less than average for you?
3) Are you male or female?
4) Where do you live?
5) How old are you?

I've eaten meat at five meals this week--two dinners and three lunches. That's far above my average, which is probably 3X/7 days, max.

I'm male, Californian, and 35.

I'm married to a (lacto-ovo) vegetarian, so all the meals we prepare at home are meatless. I've just gone out to eat a lot this week.

Have you ever seen a movie that you thought was based on a novel or short story and it turned out it was totally different and sucked? Which one?

I watched Awake last night and I thought it was going to be based off the Stephen King short story "Autopsy Room Four" which is about a man who comes awake while he is being laid out for an autopsy and realises he must show them he isn't really dead. It was a totally different plot and annoyed me very much, because the summary for the movie was "A surgical patient becomes alert but paralysed during his procedure" and I assumed it might be a slight variation of the short story.

Totally different. Totally sucked.

My next door neighbours are deaf. They cannot hear anyone knocking at the door and I don't believe they have a working doorbell. We tend to communicate via notes and that works out fine for both parties.

I'm on study leave and have heard the postman knocking on their door from time to time. Should I mention the above situation to him and offer to take in their post? The parcels are usually delivered by an outside courier but the postman delivers their usual post i.e. bills etc. It would save them a trip to the sorting office to pick up their post as well.

EDIT: Would like to add I live in a block of flats and their flat is across the hall from me. Also they are not very well sound proofed so I am not stalking the postman.

Who was the last truly thick person you had to deal with?
Like my landlady thinks 29=30, and I can't get it through her head that if she gave me 30 days on the 26th of February, which was a Friday, I'm only at Day 28 right now. Like, I don't think she grasps the concept of seven days existing per week. She keeps insisting tomorrow is day 30.

what was the last thing you did to piss one of your family members off?
I was trying to watch a movie and our living room DVD player sucks, it always freezes and skips. So, I decided to switch it out with another DVD player in the house, which my mom has been wanting my dad to do for weeks. I didn't get the cords right and messed it up some how. So now my dad is bitching at me because I don't know what the hell I'm doing and I shouldn't touch things I don't know anything about.

If he would have done it when my mom asked him to, we wouldn't be in the this situation. ugh.

I heard something

Today at the bus stop a girl who was probably about 18 was on the phone with her (probably now ex) boyfriend, very upset, and I couldn't help but overhear, she was quite loud and distraught. All 'I love you has 8 letters but baby,  so has bullshit!" and all "My bedroom wall is going to love me." "yeah, I'll smash it again" "I don't care, I can do worse damage than that. Want me to prove it?" "Don't tell me you love me, or I'll punch you"  and "I'm not keeping it, not after what you did" "No, not after he's been fucking lying to me all along!" etc

I was feeling a bit sorry for her, even though she was clearly one of those... people who get angry upset. I wanted to check on her afterwards, or tell her something reassuring. Later on the bus a guy she knew tried to ask her something, and she really angrily was saying (loudly) that he has to leave her alone, she doesn't want to talk, just leave her alone, because she just found out her boyfriend cheated on her. The guy she was talking to gave me a 'woah, sorry you had to hear that/yikes overreaction' sort of look when I got off one stop after her.

Should I have said something to her?
What should I have said? (or could I have said. Entertain me)
What dramaey things have you  heard at bus stops?
Will they get back together?
Do you threaten violence against things when you're really upset?
Have you ever wanted to randomly comfort someone you don't know? (have you done it?)

I hope she's alright. Is she alright?

Strange things are afoot at the Circle K.

Or well in this case at the bar.

Ok so me at the bar last Friday, chatted up a lady got her phone number at the end of the night. She is a friend of fellow regular at this bar, have not seen him since.

I looked on facebook the next day to see if she had a profile and she does and it appears she is married.

We were both drinking, but I would not say either of us was really really drunk.

Why would she give me her phone number if she is married?

How do you address an email that is going to multiple people?

I am trying to convince my university to allow me to extend my international exchange (from one semester to a full year), and I need to send an email to: my head of workshop, the Art School Exchange Co-Ordinator, and the University's International Mobility Program Co-Ordinator. I've met and spoken to all three of these people, so "to whom it may concern" seems too impersonal, but I need to email all three at once so they are all involved in the same email, so I can't address them individually. What do I dooo?

Also, I'm fairly sure I'm going to get back a reply of "no". What is a polite way to say that I want a better reason than "it's just not done", which is the one I suspect I will be given?

Tqc, I've never been in a car accident before so I'm hoping someone here will know an answer. My boyfriend called me a bit ago and told me he got in a wreck--nothing serious, he rear-ended a lady who slammed on her brakes suddenly, at 30 mph. About 40 minutes ago, he said the police had just showed up and that he'd call when he knew something.

How long does it generally take to sort things out after something like this? Should I have heard something by now, or am I just overreacting? He has a warrant for an unpaid ticket in another county, but only the state trooper could make the arrest--but I'm freaking out that one showed up or something and he's going to get arrested. :/ I feel like I should have heard something by now.

Have your FB's every been hacked?

Last night my ex sent me a short Facebook message, he sent my best friend one as well.
Both of us were like WTF, because my relationship with him is less than civil and her and him do not get along either.. And the messages were basically "Haven't talked to you in a while; how are you blah blah blah random bullshit".

I didnt reply but she sent him a short message back saying that him being a part of my life or hers was just not going to happen. (I have changed my number to get rid of this guy... I want NOTHING to do with him.)

So today he sent a message saying "oh sorry my facebook got hacked; it sent messages to all of my friends; sorry for the hassel"

one: it's not like this message said "TRY THIS ACAI PILLS" or anything like that; it was personalized and even said our NAMES in it. Plus the wording in both of ours was different.

two: it was sent via FB mobile

three: I do not have him ADDED on FB. Why would it contact me and my best friend who have not spoken (nicely) to this guy in over a year?

He is lying to me, and was drunk and decided to message us because his life is boring now? y/n?
Or have you others heard of this happening?

I hope he did get hacked because I'm so frustrated with having to deal with him. He acts like a child.
I know I should not even care haha, but it kind of amused me.

I now have two 'get any beverage you want free' cards.

Help me find the perfect present!

Long story short, me and my hubby were having money problems. He lost his job, they went into bankruptcy, and they didn't pay him for a month and half, which is illegal here, lied about the paycheck and after the place closed, they didn't had any money to pay the employees. We ended up with no money at all. Only our little savings.
My husband's aunt helped us big time by giving us money to pay the rent, money for food etc. She's in her 60s, lost a son to suicide a year ago, her husband died 15 years ago or so and he was beating her. She had a rough life.
She helped us, listened to us and she's the kinda aunt that, every autumn she will bake apple pies for everyone. A real gem and such a caring person.

Now that me and hubby are doing better money wise (He found a new job) we started refunding her and we wanna give her a present. Something sweet to thank her and remind her that she's an amazing person.
We found a card but we have no idea what to get her!

So, What should we get that amazing lady?

Say you've planned your wedding on the 30th of November. However, one of your parents(or your SO's parents) died on the 1st of November.

Would you continue with the ceremony or would postponed it to a later date?
How long would you postponed it?
What if it was another immediate family(sibling, aunt, grandfather etc) instead of parents?

I think in some cultures, they have to have a few months or a year of mourning before they can have a wedding(sometimes to the point that their aunts died, their grandparents died...and they ended getting married 2+ years after the initial date).

Oh and I just noticed that the memory/edit/etc buttons are different.

The kids are watching it upstairs. I caught 5 minutes of it while I was bringing groceries in and it is kinda freaking me out a little here. The soundtrack seems equally creepy. Do not want! D: Did I just catch it at a bad time or do I have a legitimate reason to be really creeped out by this?

Unlike apparently everyone else in the world, I never read the book and haven't bothered to google the plot yet, sooo.... idk, would it help if I had any idea wtf was going on? I don't really think it would, it's just the way the thing looks... *shivers*

Paging Dr. LJ.

Alright, so, I stubbed my pinky toe about 20 minutes ago, and it's very swollen, very painful, and hurts to move or put pressure on. The pain has already been steadily growing, and has a slight burning sensation to it.

I don't have medical insurance, and going to the ER over a stubbed toe seems really lame, and from what I understand there's not much that can really be done with toe injuries anyway.

For all I know, I'm being very paranoid over anything actually being wrong, but does anyone have any suggestions on how to treat this at home?
