I'm SO happy I'm a gay man so I don't EVER have to realistically deal with this question but:
If you (as a girl) were having casual sex with your friend (with absolutely no emotional attachments whatsoever, purely for fun) and then you turned up pregnant, what would you do? If you chose to get an abortion, would you tell him? How? Why?
I'd get an abortion and wouldn't ever bring it up. I feel like it'd be an unnecessary conversation. But IDK I'm curious as to what other peoples' opinions are on this issue.
Have you ever had a REALLY significant part of your life just go terribly wrong? For example, your boyfriend proposes to you and when you announce it to everybody, your sister decides to announce that she got knocked up and is having an abortion, thus placing nothing but negative attention on her and ruining your day? Or if you had a wedding that ended up being a disaster? Or the guest speaker at your graduation keeled over and died of a heart attack?
Please share the gory details.
Easier question... which is better, the icing or the cake? I prefer the cake part, myself.
Have you ever won a contest? What were the terms and what did you win? I am entering a karaoke contest and am super nervous about it. BUT if I win I get to meet the band, and they're my fave country group!!!!
I hate to make these kinds of posts, but I really need some help. What do I buy my sister for her birthday?
Here are the pertinent details: -She's turning 42 but is more like early 30s in style and attitude -Owns her own clothing boutique -Likes to work out -Like to travel (within the country) -Doesn't drink -Likes to gamble (casinos, recently started being interested in horse racing)
I usually get her work out clothes or DVDs but that's getting boring. I don't want to do a gift card. I did ask her for ideas but she never got back to me. Please help!
Am I the only one who thinks that this is completely superfluous? (It's a soap pump you don't have to touch.) Their argument is the soap pump is covered in germs. You're washing your hands anyway, you don't need this!
(I'm in a super grumpy mood and didn't open the door to my friendly Jehovah's Witnesses - we usually have a good ten minutes of interesting, lively debate over issues, and I'm feeling ridiculously guilty about it.)
So I received a tanning gift certificate from someone who wasn't going to use it. I can use it for 3 free 15 minute tans or for 25% more minutes on a regular purchase of tanning minutes, however I have never used tanning beds in my life (i'm 24). I'd say I tan relatively easy.
For those who have used tanning beds before what's the experience like? Did you enjoy it or not? Would you recommend the 3 tanning sessions or the 25% more minutes on a purchase?
I would like to use the tanning certificate to tan for a wedding in july.
I'm getting new emails saying people are replying to a post I made on here more than a month ago and that they have been commenting and editing their posts just a few minutes ago. However, I went to the original post and found out that is not true. No one has added anything since last month. Is this happening to anyone else?
Hey I'm getting a deep tissue massage for the 1st time ever today to hopefully help my neck issues. I've never had one before, what should i expect? Do I need to do anything before hand (with a normal massage I was told to drink a lot of liquid to help my body flush the toxins, not sure if that's also important with this type)??
If you have a touch screen phone, do you like it? My phone is eligible for a free upgrade and one of the options is a Palm® Pixi™ Plus. Good phone y/n? (I've never had anything fancier than a a Razr soooo I'm a bit behind the times)
When you plan to take a sick day and aren't really sick, how far in advance do you call? What do you say?
I plan to do this on Saturday and I'm thinking about it way too much. I never call out so this is a major stressor. I'm even thinking how long I should wait to post anything on Facebook lest any of my coworkers catch on to my ruse. Help calm me down.
My puppy seems to have some sort of tick borne illness that isn't Lyme disease. He has to take some pills, and is fighting us viciously over this. He hasn't been eating much, and the peanutbutter trick doesn't work. We've tried a whole bunch of different foods. Today at lunch I found out he -loves- Smart Dogs. This is great! He took one of his pills. I'm going to try giving him another one of his pills in a minute.
Should I be worried about the sodium in the Smart Dogs? He'll only have like, 1/4th to 1/2 of one a day, and one dog has 310 mg of sodium. He's a cute little Mini Aussie, so he's only 20ish pounds.
All I know is that dogs shouldn't have chocolate grapes and onions. Are there other things I should watch out for? I've found some sensationally written things about soy so I have no clue if I should trust that, and my vet isn't in for me to ask.
My mom thinks I should just feed my dog the damn Smart Dog since he's begging for them and hasn't eaten well at all for the past few days. Do you agree?
All of TQC is on a plane, flying over the Andes, when it crashes deep in the mountains. The part of the plane where the lurkers were on ended up on another mountain entirely, too far to reach. Days pass and it's getting evident that no one's coming anytime soon to rescue us. That being said
1. Which member of TQC do you cuddle with for warmth? 2. Which member of TQC do you pick as your password partner (it's a game, and there will probably be a lot of games played to pass the time) 3. What useful skill could you bring to the group? 4. If we have to create our own society, which person in TQC would you elect as our leader/king/president? 5. When the food runs out, which member of TQC would you select to be eaten first?
I'm trying to make friends with a crow that lives around my house. I've been leaving granola bar bits out for him whenever I see him around. What else should I give him that will make him want to come back?
My boss just called me on my cell, to tell me that there's $0 in the cash box at work. I closed up the office last night, I know for a fact there was a $20 bill and a buttload of change inside when I locked the safe.
What's the last lame/stupid thing that happened to you or that you heard about today?
What are you doing this weekend? I'm going to my mom's house for the weekend, for my brother's hs grad on Saturday, and her university convocation on Monday :D
do any of you use verizon as your wireless internet provider? if so, what have your experiences with it been like?
i use verizon and my internet will work fine until about 9:30 pm or so, at which point it starts repeatedly shutting itself on and off until the following morning, especially if it has just rained, and even though this has only fairly recently become an issue, i have used verizon since june of 2007, as far as i can remember at least
dk/dc/dgaf: who is your internet provider? do you know anyone who still uses dial-up internet?
So you are going to be spending a long weekend away from home...you have a house you can crash at, you also have a tent and air mattress, a picnic basket and a little bit of money but not an exorbitant amount. (Maybe $75). You are spending it with a person you love to hang out with (can be friend or significant other). What do you fill your days with doing???
I just loaded the first 300 songs onto my first iPod and I'm in love. I have amazing music again after many years of starvation. What groups or songs are straight up AMAZING that you think I should check out? (I listen to a myriad of awesomeness like Vampire Weekend, Imogen Heap, Counting Crows, Bloc Party, Yann Tiersen, Damien Rice...)
I just sent out the same e-mail twice, but decided to "take back" the second one...or so I thought. How many confused phone calls do you think I will get now? One from all 6 people, half of them, or none of them at all?
A week into my summer break and I'm already bored. My best friend has work tonight and can't hang. Should I stay in and play MMOs, try to hang out with my ex, call up a fuck buddy or something else I've not thought up? (I cannot drive, btw.) How quickly do you/did you get bored during the summer?
Today I went to the National Zoo with my son's class. It was hot as fuck, but all of the animals we went to look for were out and visible which was pretty awesome.
Do you like zoos? When is the last time you went to one? Which one?
Do you find them a little depressing?
I do sorta. I know it's really important for kids and adults to be able to observe different species and learn about them, but I never see animals look overly ecstatic about being there in the caged areas.
We're going here for trivia tonight. I honest to god don't know what I want for dinner but I am starving. I know I have asked this before, but I am menstrual this week and could pretty much eat an entire cow. Suggestions? What would you get with a $20 bill?
I was just on a forum & came across a woman who was asking "if she did the right thing" by putting her sweet, darling puppy down for biting her & her husband in the face. She was upset, but seriously, training the puppy, hell.. even giving it to a loving home that could actually train/work with the pup would have been infinitely better. They didn't even give the poor thing a chance. I'm just surprised that the vet even allowed/did such a thing without at least exploring options..
Would you put a puppy to sleep for biting you? I mean, seriously? Fucks sake.
What annoys or irritates you most about your job (/volunteer work/employment situation/etc)?
My boss procrastinates SO much. I asked off for vacation in June months ago and he approved it but has yet to figure out who is going to cover for me when I'm gone. We're shorthanded which makes this hard, but this is also because he has been procrastinating hiring someone. He's a great boss in every other way, but this is so frustrating.
Do you shop at Sephora? If so, what are your favorite products? I get a free birthday gift if I make an online purchase (too lazy to go find an actual Sephora near me), so I'm thinking about buying a few things online.
If you DON'T shop at Sephora, where do you get your cosmetics/war paint/anti-stink spray, etc? (Usually I'm just a drug store kind of person, and that's only when I lose one of my eyeliner pencils or something: I don't wear much makeup usually.)
What color is your car/bike/scooter/shoes/skateboard/primary method of transportation?
a pharmacist or know someone who is/is going to school to become one? I'm semi-considering this as a career and just wanted to hear from an actual person instead of those youtube video personalities :|
One of my aunts has just died and the funeral is this weekend. My grandma refuses to go; citing "not wanting anything to do with family drama and fuss" and a grudge that she's been holding towards her for years as the main reasons. I suppose I can understand why she would want to keep her distance from family members of questionable sanity, but the grudge I do not.
I think i'm just going to let this be. You're all right, it is her issue to deal with.
How do you feel about funerals in general? How many have you been to?
2) Can you name any upcoming sequels/remakes that aren't widely known about yet? What do you think of them?
2) I'm actually looking forward to the 4th Scream movie. Thenn, it looks like a Sherlock Holmes sequel is being planned. A remake of "The Birds", it'll either be interesting or turned into a cheap and stupid horror movie. Pirates of the Caribbean 4. That's all that's coming to mind at the moment.
Has anyone ever worked for CVS? How was your experience?
I used to work there and I hated it. The managment sucked, they would leave food and drinks in the isles and the shift managers never did anything. They also made us cashiers so jobs that I'm pretty sure they were supposed to be doing. We were always understaffed, nights can get busy and most of time it was one cashier and a manager to run the place, leaving the lonely cashier to do ALL closing chores like vaccuum, returns, damages ect. I understand the manager has his jobs like counting out draws but most of the time I had to rush to finish all the chores. Sometimes I couldn't even finish them becuase we custumers right up until we locked the doors. I felt too much was excepted from one person in too short an amount of time.
Never worked there? What was the worst thing that ever happened to you at work?
what should i wear to a post graduation entry level job interview? all four years at school we've been taught to wear the standard black suit with minimal makeup and boring hair. only yesterday i went shopping at urban outfitters and found this awesome purple skirt that i feel l can pull off if paired with a blazer and work appropriate heels.
so is it possible at all to spice up an interview outfit?
Who can take a sunrise Sprinkle it in dew Cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two?
DK/DC: Do you like musicals? (I have a friend that says she doesn't but then refers to the ones she does like as "movies with musical numbers in them" so feel free to think of them that way, if you'd like) If you do, what are your favorites?
I'm home from school for the summer and I applied to a job at a dog day care center in an animal hospital last Wednesday. My sister's going to the same place tomorrow to get her dog groomed and she wants me to go with her and ask if they've had time to look at my application.
Is it annoying to check up on an employer a week after you applied, or does it make you stand out in a good way? I've never had a real job so I'm kind of a newbie at this. D:
so deviating from my previous post a little bit: where do i go to buy work attire? specifically a suit? i'm petite too, if that helps. i've never been work clothes shopping before so any and all advice would be really helpful! please and thank you!
If you were to become famous, what would your relationship with the press be?
Would you be an open book or very private and attempt to avoid paparazzi?
If you were to create a on-stage/press persona, what would it be? Currently, I'm in a band and we are about to be picked up by a record label and I'm really afraid of giving up my privacy. I really don't want my life to become public knowledge. So I think I'm going to go full on character actor mode. I'll probably go crazy. But it's okay! My persona is an android who accidentally time travels and is discovered by my bandmates. I have a whole history/story mapped out...a lot may not be "revealed" to my audience, but whatever, its for me mostly.
I need to reinstall itunes, but the page is loading really slowly. It's been five minutes and it hasn't loaded yet. Can you guys access it easily? (It's not my connection because every other page loads fine.) What was your last unexpected expenditure? I just spent about $300 to get my computer 'fixed'.
Does it annoy you if someone flippantly says "Haha sorry, I have Tourettes" if they are swearing a lot?
I might be being really petty but it pisses me off no end. I have a patient at the moment with Tourettes and her tic is stamping her foot, so hard that she has actually now broken her own ankle, and she still can't stop doing it. Seeing how much pain and distress she is in makes me want to punch anyone who uses the term flippantly just because they happen to swear a lot.
The same goes for saying "I'm so OCD!" Just because you like like keeping your bedroom tidy doesn't mean you have fucking OCD.
Am I completely ridiculous for getting so irate when people make remarks like this?
My sister left a pair of underwear with a pantyliner stuck to them laying on our bedroom floor. It wasn't all gory looking but still. How should I punish her?
If I had though of it earlier I would have taken pictures and posted them on facebook with her and all her friends tagged in them but it's too late and she's cleaned up already and that might be a little too bitchy for me.
tonight i went to mcdonalds to grab some dinner and i ordered a quarter pounder combo, went all the way home and opened it up and found all that was in the burger box was just a bun. no meat or cheese, nothing. i took it back and all they did was give me a new burger.
should i make a complaint?
what messed up crap has happened to you at fast-food places?
What was the last awkward conversation you had/were tricked into?
Brought to you by my dad surprising me over dinner with discussions of accommodations for an upcoming wedding, and wondering if my SO and I would share a hotel room because "I don't know or care if you two engage in sex..."
