Does anybody else find the word "panties" creepy? Especially when older men utter it... ::shudders::

What are some annoying cliche' phrases that get on your nerves? I hate it when somebody dies and people say, "Well, they're in a better place..." Yeah... that made me feel SO MUCH BETTER.

My boyfriend has been in the shower for an hour now, and I have yet to hear any water running.

How much longer will he be in there?
He sleeps in the bathtub (full of water) or on the toilet on a regular basis. Is this what he's doing?

Do you fall asleep in a tub full of water? HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?

My mom has been getting mysterious phone calls on her cell and at her job, and they're saying inappropriate things. This happened about a year ago, and the cops didn't do anything because it was a cell number. This time it's a land line. Think that'll change much?

If not, should I spam the internet with his number?

Why have my heels been EXTREMELY itchy since last night? I don't think they identical bug bites, but I didn't really check for that. Is this an omen that I will be getting lots of money soon?

Should I bake chocolate sandwich cookies, espresso brownies, or focaccia bread tomorrow? Two of them? All three?

What's your favorite spice, that you would put on all foods if you could?

Is a breadmaker a good investment for someone who often bakes gluten-free bread? Would that make any difference with a machine?

If you were an author, would you allow fan-fiction? Why or why not?

If you actively read or write fan-fiction, which fandoms do you participate in?

My husband was supposed to have tonight off work. Before he left this morning (he works 10p - 7a), they asked if he could work tonight in exchange for having any other night off (Sunday - Saturday).

Instead of swapping tonight for tomorrow night so we could do something for Mother's Day..he opted to swap for Monday night so he could have 3 days in a row off work.

ETA: And during the day tomorrow is off because he works 9a - 1p for his other job..which was his choice.

I should kick him in the balls, y/y?

If kicking him the balls is too drastic, what should I do?

I'm all grrrr because I know he has nothing planned for Mother's Day...again this year.

Is anyone here really good at always using your reusable shopping bags?

What's your routine with them? I mean, do they live in your car all the time, do you hang them by the door when you unload them, or do you just never go to the store if they're not with you?

I always thought that it would be nice to have my VAGINA situated in my armpit. Having a hand growing there as well would be just fine and dandy. I could play with myself alll day long without anyone knowing (not that not having a VAGINA in my armpit area has stopped me from doing this all day anyway because hey! I am playing with my VAGINA right now). I'd be at a crosswalk playing with myself *tickle tickle tickle* and I would start to giggle, *teehee, stop that* I would say and people would point and stare at me.

Do you think that it would be nice to have a VAGINA in your armpit too also as well?

I'm a chef.

In one of the LJ comms I'm in, I do a column where I talk about where your food comes from, how to choose good quality produce, looking after your equipment, which cut of meat or variety of a certain vegetable is best for particular things and why, how to store things, how to do certain techniques like filleting fish or boning a chicken...anything a cook could conceivably want to know and not be sure about.

So far, I've done columns on
- Salmon
- Flatfish
- Rabbit
- Choosing and caring for your knives

What was your experience dating someone within your "circle".

I have known this girl since highschool and she is both a part of my people I know from highschool circle and people who I grew up with in my neighborhood. As anyone had experience dating someone who is a part of the "circle" of people they hang out with. I feel like for one, it makes meeting the friends part easier since she is already part of the group. So that would be a positive but the obvious negative is if the relationship crashes and burns everyone will know about it.

So does anyone have experience dating someone in a similar situation and was it for the most part positive or negative?

If you were to participate:


When would you be from?
What would you wear?
What is your time period like?
What would would you react oddly to, and how?
Other amusing scenarios that might arise?

My stepmother is a psychologist, and would like to be able to record her sessions (and sometimes spoken relaxations for clients) and put them on CD. So she needs a recording device that can pick up two voices in a room quite well, and records the audio in a digital format. She isn't very technologically minded - she handles her phone well but she wouldn't be up to like, attaching a mic to her laptop and recording that way, for instance. So the simpler the better.

Do you have any recommendations? Any brand or models of anything that you think are particularly good?

I Need Movie/TV Recommendations!

So, I live in China, but I originally hail from the US. And I find myself every day explaining to people that despite what they see on TV, we are not all supermodel millionaires and that contrary to how it seems on TV, we do go to class in high school. I am also fully aware that no movie is going to be completely realistic, because, well, we live in the real world.... we don't need to watch movies about it. But I figure, as much as I try to explain myself, there have GOT to be some things I can tell people to watch. I'm always being asked to recommend good movies anyway... so, I figure, two birds with one stone.

Anybody have any recommendations for movies/tv shows that accurately portray life in America?

Would you rather have sex that varies in goodness (bad, mediocre, good) several times a month or only have sweet, awesome sex once a month?

Have you ever had sex so good that your legs shake and you just want to tell everyone how good it was?

do you ever get the urge to listen to bands that you listened to ten years ago, partly out of nostalgia but mainly because something happened to remind you how great they are? is this not an issue for you because all the music you listened to ten years ago sucked?

i just met silas howard last night at sister spit and now i can't stop listening to tribe 8. i feel pretty awesome about this, but i'd definitely rue the day i accidentally bump into stephen jenkins or something.

What do you think of Tumblr?

What does your favorite shirt look like? I'm in the mood for some new graphic tees/tanks but I don't like any of the ones I can find where they'd usually have good ones (AE, delias, forever21, bustedtees). Where should I look?

This is the best one I found recently- I think it's my new favorite- from Old Navy of all places: Collapse )

DK/DC: What is your biggest fear?

Life is

What metaphor best explains your life?
  1. A Battle - Everything is a competition or a struggle.  You are always either winning or losing.
  2. A Garden - Relationships are cultivated like flowers or vegetables.  You work at growing, flowering, producing.
  3. A Mission - You believe that you have the truth and you need to convince others that you point-of-view is right. 
  4. A Journey or an adventure - You travel from place to place meeting new people and exploring.
  5. A Building - Starting with a solid foundation, then adding floors and rooms.
  6. A Roller Coaster - Life consists of ups and downs, and you are just along for the ride.
  7. A Stained-glass window - full of light and colors. 
  8. A Mountain Climb - Life consists of hierarchies.  You are always climbing the corporate ladder.
  9. A Race - always finding the fastest route, "keeping up with the Jonses."
  10. A Courtroom - Everything in life should be fair.
  11. Stepping Stones - You barely get comfortable where you are before you are looking for better job or a bigger house.
  12. A Prison - Feeling like you don't have choices, like others have all the power.
  13. A Classroom - There are always new lessons to learn.
  14. A Battery - Every encounter seems to drain energy.  you need the weekends to recharge

Which book better encapsulates Ayn Rand's ideas of objectivism and individualism?



Also, which is the better read?

Clarification: I'm an Australian, so Ayn Rand's literature was never taught during school- I don't understand the cultural associations with her work, which is partially why I want to read some of her books and understand why everyone seems to hate her!

Here is my story. I bought a Canon Rebel XS almost 2 years ago. I payed an extra $140-something for the "4 year insurance plan" from Best Buy. Two months after buying the camera I got an "error 99" (i think it was 99?) and researched it, found out it was manufacturers problem so I took it in to Best Buy to Geek Squad they had it for about 2 weeks and told me I had to get another one. So I just picked up another new camera. Well, a few months the same thing happened again. Took it to Geek Squad and, again, they had it for about 2 weeks and called me up and just told me to get a new one. Not only that they told me my 4 year insurance program was void since I had to get 2 new cameras. even though I didn't do anything to the camera for that to happen. So it's been almost a year with the 3rd camera and I just got an "error 05" where my pop up flash doesn't ... well, pop up. 
Isn't there something I can do? Contact canon or something? I pad nearly $800 and keep having so many errors! Help?

In my family, we always gave the mothers corsages (the kind you pin on) to wear at Mother's Day brunch. I bought some for the women in my boyfriend's family to wear tomorrow.

But now I'm starting to think it might be too much or odd. What do you think? I know them all pretty well and we've been together three years, if it makes a difference.

I just had two of three jobs interviews, for a vet's office reception position. I dressed super nice for these. The third and final interview is a "working interview" where I basically sit at the front and watch what the reception people do. The reception apparel seems to be khakis and a polo. I'm probably going to dress more casual for this interview, but I only have khaki capris. Would it be acceptable to wear capris? I'd be wearing a oxford on top, if that helps balance out.

Alternately I could wear a skirt.

Help! I have no idea what to wear!

This previous Sunday, my manager called me into his office and told me I wasn't loud enough at my job (We're required to give a tour of the kitchen every time a guest enters our restaurant).He told me to put some thought into whether or not I can do this job and to call to let him know on Wednesday what I thought was best.Then he sent me home for the day. I called him on Wednesday and told him I don't want to lose my job and I'll make the changes I need to make to keep it. In an unenthusiastic tone, he asked me to come in 15 minutes before my shift tonight to speak to him (which will happen in just over an hour). Does it sound like I'm going to get fired?

Pants size question

There's a pair of jeans I want, but they're sold out in my length. I wear a 28" inseam - they're available in 32" and 36". They're skinny jeans so I intend on just cuffing them - which would be the better length to get for cuffing? Or would it not really matter? Idk if the longer one will have too much extra fabric, or if the shorter one wouldn't have enough to look right. Getting them hemmed is also an option but I want to know which length to start out with in case I prefer them cuffed. TY!

I think I need to leave my boyfriend. 2 weeks after we started dating, he tried to get me to orgasm via erotic asphyxiation and he didn't even warn me. I was so wasted, I fled his bedroom and called 911 but hung up, so the authorities ended up showing anyway. No charges were pressed. We stopped having sex after that and a few weeks later, we were really drunk and I let him finger me while we were watching a movie. The sex was sloppy, missionary, and after we were done (a whopping 14 mins lol), he went right to bed without cuddling/kissing.

It seems like sex is just a chore now, and I feel like it's because I'm not down with the whole rape/submissive shit that gets him off.

What's the largest amount of caffeine you've consumed in a short period of time?
Has anyone had what apparently is called "caffeine intoxication"?

My boyfriend needed to stay up but was super tired so he took ~660 mg of caffeine (pills + coca cola) and then another ~200 mg about 4 hours later. Now he feels nauseous and shaky with a headache. Is that normal for the amount he consumed? I'm worried about him, but then again, I worry a lot.

Don't care? Will you tell me something interesting you've learned lately?

I have these horrible red dots on my legs, and they're driving me insane! It's nice out and I want to wear shorts! Sometimes they're not so bad, but other times, they're super red. They're not itchy. Some are bumpy. Some are just dots on my legs. It's a lot worse on the upper leg part.

I'm pretttty sure it's not from shaving, but I've tried different razors etc. I've also tried NOT shaving for a long period of time. I've tried waxing. I exfoliate. It doesn't seem like anything has worked and I've had to deal with it for so long!
