Take a Look

my fear is not rational!!

How do I stop freaking out if my fiance's out and he doesn't answer my texts immediately? It's not a "oh god what if he's out with some ho", it's "oh god what if he's lying in a ditch somewhere bleeding to death"


I can't stop thinking like that. If I'm expecting someone to be around at X time and they haven't called me or checked in, I panic. And then I start thinking, well if I did/didn't X, they'd be okay, without even knowing what's up.

HOW DO I STOP THIS INSANITY?

has any event ever happened to you that made you go "there is no way anything worse could possibly ever happen to me"?

did something worse than that happen to you afterwards?

meaning an event that affected you on a personal level, as opposed to some atrocity going on elsewhere in the world that has nothing to do with you. like the death of a loved one as opposed to the iraq war or something like that. and let's assume that death would not be the worst thing that could happen to you, just so we can rule that out.

Am I the only person on earth who doesn't know how the hell to make microwave popcorn? I always end up burning it even if I set it for like 2 minutes.

How the hell can I start making good microwave popcorn? Do I just need to get a new microwave instead?
you think you're heart would learn.

doubt thou the stars are fire...

so i've recently been trying to digest the possibility that America is no country for love. certain countries, over time, have evolved cultures that in popular culture stand as societies representative of love and romance but the new world is strangely left out of this league. images such as bored soccer moms, single parents, hateful children and bitter old people in retirement homes come to mind. where is the love?

i just fucked this guy. we're really close friends and we always talk to each other about our problems... namely, we're both in love with other people who don't want to be with either of us and we have depressing conversations about our separate situations. we even talk about this stuff together before, during, and after sex and that's the kind of dynamic our friendship has. so i'm trying to come up with a term for the kind of sex we have... as in... sometimes people have hate sex, make-up sex, etc... what is ours called? all i can come up with is "comfort sex" but i feel like that's not accurate enough. do you have any ideas for what we can call it?

So I woke up this morning and I had been logged out of LJ and it kept telling me my password was wrong.

I finally managed to reset it and nothing has been changed or messed with, that I can find, and I can't find any entries posted anywhere, so it seems like someone got into my account... just to look?

What gives, TQC? Has this ever happened to you?

Are you the type of person that likes thoughtful presents, or are you the type to not care about presents very much?

If you are the first type, have you ever given presents to the second type, only to have them ignore all the effort you put into it? Do you not bother next time?

And if you are the second type, would you rather people didn't bother putting thoughts behind your presents, and just get you a gift card or something?

Party math.

I invited about 45 people to our cookout this afternoon.
28 RSVP'd "yes".

And the rest never RSVP'd at all.

I have some prepared now, but we're going shopping for the rest this afternoon.

So I moved into my own apartment this week. I lived with a roommate who was never there and her cat. My cat and hers got along well, they'd play and groom eachother. Now it's just her, and she's gotten super clingy. Follows me, meows all the time, lays on me and rolls around.. all this super affectionate stuff she didn't do before. I'm assuming she misses the company of the other cat, will she adjust? At this point she cries when I close her out of the bathroom or leave for work. :(

Dont know or care: What was your first apartment like?

Attempting to word this better:
Everyone's supposed to like certain things according to some label or what all their friends like. Such as if you're indie rock you have to like the mountain goats or if you're a hipster you have to like david bowie. Yes its all bullshit, this is for entertainment. So how do you fail at being cool?

My EVDO card finally went (well, my nephew broke it in half) and my contract with Verizon has been month-to-month for about a year now, so I can cancel it if there's something better.

(ETA 2: If it was as simple as 'getting over it' I wouldn't be asking. I've tried to get over it in the past, both when my housemate has gone away before and when I lived with my parents and their two dogs. Last time there were two other people living here who could deal with the litter tray. This time I'll be on my own and I won't be able to clean it.)

My grandpa is a superb gardener. I am a terrible gardener. Things die in my garden when they're still at the sprout stage. Grandpa's plants are magical. The oranges taste like creamscicles, the grapefruits make my lips tingle with deliciousness, the tomatoes taste like fresh marinara, the onions taste like waves of flavor that have flowed from heaven, etc.

What makes Grandpa such a great gardener?


These are some current theories of friends and family:
1. His house is built on an ancient burial ground
2. Alien assistance
3. Grandpa is, in fact, an alien

Can someone shed some light on this for me.

Does 'the woods' refer to a particular forest, or is it a generic term for all forests?

By extension, is every teddy bear in the world in one particular forest having a large-scale picnic, or are different forests hosting their own local picnics for teddy bears in that region?

starbucks "however you want it" frappuccinos

also, on the website they have a "Syrup Flavored Cream" frappuccino. what is that? i live in canada so maybe we don't have it here yet or else i've just been living under a rock. how would you customize it?

TQC, my parents want to know what I want for my 21st birthday. I want a laptop, more specifically, a MacBook Pro. I honestly don't expect them to drop 1200 dollars on a laptop, so I figured I'd offer to pay for a little less than half (I have about 570 dollars in a CD account from a graduation/18th birthday present). It's a long shot in itself, but should I at least try it?

Turpentine and Turpenoid

A few years ago I took an oil painting class where the teacher explained the difference between turpentine and turpenoid. She very specifically stated that regardless of what anyone in the art store will tell you, one was good for cleaning brushes while the other was for thinning paint, though I can't remember which is which.

I think turpentine is for thinning paint, and turpenoid for cleaning brushes, but I just want to make sure. I've googled and found nothing conclusive. Does anyone here know for sure which is for which?

Thanks!

I live in USA and I've somehow been managing without internet in my apartment for a year. I'm finally giving in. But the issue is that I don't want to spend more than 30 a month for internet and I'm probably going to be moving in about a year, and most plans I've seen have a two year contract minimum. I'm okay with it being slow as long as I can play a youtube video (I can wait for it to load). Any plan suggestions? Does pay-as-you-go exist for internet, because I think that would be ideal.

Edit: When I say move, I mean potentially to a different country.

Inspired by the movie theatre cup holder question...

When you watch movies in theatres, do you choose your seats at the box office from the seating plan and then have that seat row & number printed on your ticket?

Or is it free-seating where you sit wherever you want once you get in the theatre?

Which country are you in?

Here in Malaysia we ALWAYS choose our seats from the seat plan whenever we're buying tickets (either online or at the box office), then the seat is assigned to us and printed on our tickets. I very much prefer this method so that whoever buys tickets the earliest will get to choose their preferred seats. I love sitting at the back rows right in the middle.

I have some weird spots on my skin.

They randomly appeared one day after being outside, but the outside part may just have been coincidence. They also didn't all appear at once. Two showed up on the side of my face, then two on my chest, one on each side of my neck, and now there is one on my arm, like 3 days later. They might be bug bites, but they don't itch. They are for sure not mosquito bites. The ones on the side of my face look like they are peeling or something. They're just small red dots, maybe a little splotchy, but they don't look like the pictures of eczema I've seen or anything.

What could they be? :(

My friend just told me she is going to commit suicide. She's in her late 40s, just lost her job, was recently divorced, and is experiencing "empty nest" depression. She wrote me a letter and told me that things would just be easier for everyone involved, ect. She wasn't answering her phone so I went over there and knocked on her door. She answered, sat me down in the kitchen and very casually told me she had lived her life and was ready to die. I asked her when she was planning on doing it, and she said in the next couple weeks when she gets her "affairs in order." She told me she wanted me to have a particular piece of jewelry from her collection.

I was stunned.

What do I do? Who do I call? The hospital? The police? Surely there is something to do in this situation? I don't know her very well. I don't know her relatives or other friends or anyone I can contact to let them know.

posting for a friend, srsly.

So I drank a delicious, delicious Mexican-bottled Coke the other day. Wegman's imports them and I buy them on occasion since they're made with sugar, not corn syrup. This particular Coke, however, has extras, in the form of GLASS. That's right, three glass shards in the Coke. Luckily, while I did drink them, I felt something odd in my mouth and spit them out. I didn't cut myself, and as far as I know, didn't swallow any glass.

The shards are clearly from a Coke bottle (color & label paint) but not THIS Coke bottle - it's not broken or chipped in any way. They're not huge, but they sure aren't small - about the size of a Wonka Nerd. I found three.

I'm about to buy some stuff from Amazon.com right now.

My total is about $5 shy of the $25 free super saver shipping thing, so at this point I'm just gonna buy another $5-ish thing (since I'd end up paying that in shipping if I don't, and I'd rather have a $5 thing than spend the $5 on shipping).

Problem is, my Wish List is full of $20+ things. I don't know what else to buy!

Should I just waste the $5 on shipping?

If not, what ~$5 thing should I buy? Any suggestions?

I'm crocheting a blanket, what should I watch whilst doing so: The original Nightmare on Elm Street, Rocky Horror Picture show (with or without the commentary?) or the remake of The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3?

While I am unemployed, my parents are helping cover my bills that I can't pay. As such, I am doing stuff around the house, including doing dishes, watering plants, laundry (excluding underpants) and cleaning...I don't cook a lot for them because they eat meat and I don't...and I can't cook it for shit. Do you have any other suggestions on other things I can do to show my appreciation?

Is there anything interesting between Pittsburgh and Chicago? (To stop at while driving) I'm going to assume there's nothing in Ohio, but I've never been to Indiana before so idk.


[The kind of stuff I hope to find: Tiny little out of the way stands selling the world's best home made jam, giant balls of twine, etc.]

I need to track down this guy I've decided is the love of my life and we should be together forever and ever. We went on a few dates last year and I called him 2 weeks ago and we started to arrange going on another date and then he told me to call him when I was around and he would see if he was free.

BUT THEN

I lost my phone! And with it his number...

I've got a few issues though! I've just realised I don't have him on Facebook, I may or may not have him on MSN (Jimmy Williams, is that you?! Why are you online quite a lot of the time yet never reply to me...), none of my friends know him that well to have his phone number and no one I've been asking knows him. The only thing I DO know is where he lives, albeit I'm not 100% on the door number or flat number.

SO what do I do?! Surely going over there and ringing his buzzer is a step too far no?

Where is my remote?!

It must be in my room somewhere, so no couch cushions or anything. I can't find it D:

How often do you lose things? Do you ever misplace things, like putting the remote in the fridge or something?

I have either a cold or allergies (can't figure out which one it is) and it's making my nose and throat REALLY itchy, and I haven't stopped sneezing all day. I tried taking Benadryl and Tylenol Sinus and neither did much, other than making me sleepy. I've also tried vaporizers and mint tea and pretty much every solution online...nothing. I have a job interview tomorrow and can't be sneezing all over the place.

Do you know of any good home remedies?
