Are there any benefits to having a savings account? As it stands, I have all my money deposited into my checking. so there's just $$$ sitting there. Last month I read my bank statement for the first time like, ever and I spent seriously $1,699 on shit. Do you think that opening a savings account would help me budget? HOW DO I STOP SPENDING ALL MY MONEY?!

Girls, are you happy with the way your abs look? If so, do you do any particular exercises/workouts? I need tips here! I'm an otherwise slim girl (5'5'', 114 lbs), but all the weight I gain seems to go STRAIGHT to my stomach and nowhere else :(

My friend lent me "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," saying that it was amazing. It's a struggle for me to get through the first chapter. Just not getting into it. Is it worth it to try to continue? Is it, indeed, amazing as my friend says?

Here's a strange one:

I was talking to one of my friends tonight. He says, "Do you know what's really gross? When a girl's thighs tough. It's disgusting."

So I started thinking about this. Shouldn't their thighs touch, at least at the very top of their legs, assuming they're standing straight? (Legs not pressed together or way far apart) He says no, and it's "gross" if they do. I went looking for some pictures to confirm my own ideas. I think girls looked deformed if their thighs don't touch, at least near the top.

Assuming you actually understood WTF I'm talking about, what's your opinion on this? Which way do you think looks normal/better?

(In case I'm not clear, here's a picture of Megan Fox showing the thigh thing real well: http://media.egotastic.com/media/pictures/1006/megan-fox-gym-butt.jpg I don't understand how someone can think that's attractive...)

CUT MY LIFE INTO PIECES

I had the shittiest day of work today and all the high schoolers that I work with are snot-nosed brats. I can easily say the best part of the whole day was talking with my ex boyfriend, who dumped me a few weeks ago, who still works there too and what the fuck I hate everything right now because that was how bad my day was. I have two more weeks of this hell. I want to explode. aldjfa;kldjf;lsafkj

I dropped out of high school due to personal issues, but i later got my GED.
It's been nearly two years since then, and i feel like i've fallen back into letting my life pass me by.
I've started to worry about my lack of personal growth recently and decided to look into starting school.
I'm nearly 23 (sunday, in fact, is my bday), and the place i work is likely to close.
My question is, first, any advice on looking into schools (i'm in Indianapolis, IN)?
Second, what do you think of people who are high school dropouts? And what are your opinions on how society views them?

1. I've been listening to The Supremes all day. Especially, "You keep me hangin' on."

what's that website?

A few years ago there was a website advertised on I can has cheezburger that sold these cute, rotund stuffed animals. Big giant cuddly ones. They were something like $65 each, and now for the life of me I can't find the site! They made food plushies too if memory serves. All the animals had a body based on a circular shape. Do you have any idea at all what website I'm talking about?

How do i deal with strict parents that insist i come home by 9:30 or 10 even on the weekends?(they tell me they can't sleep if i'm out, also i'm 23 if it matters)

I'm really wanting to go over to a friend's to watch movies later at night, but i feel like i'd have to sneak out in order to do so. Did you ever have strict parents?

make decisions for me

I have a really, really painful ingrown toenail - it's only gotten this bad over the course of today, really (I was working on my feet in tight shoes all day), and it's actually keeping me awake right now :(

I really want to see a doctor about it, but I work tomorrow (4 hours). Should I go to the walk-in and risk missing my shift, or suck it up and go to work first? I've never had one this bad (it's sending pain shooting through to my toe-knuckle, which is new for me) and don't think it's a good idea to make myself wear those shoes again without doing something about it first but something in my brain can't justify missing work over a toenail

what should I do?

My ex called me yesterday, but I didn't answer and he didn't leave a message (which is typical of him -- he hates leaving messages). We haven't...really spoken since we broke up in April. He's sent me a few odd e-mails, but that's it. We were together for four and a half years.

I kind of miss him. Not romantically (I'm currently seeing a guy who is such a better romantic fit for me than my ex ever was), but I miss his friendship. Our break up was about as mutual as it gets, and we agreed to stay friends, but nothing ever really came of that.

Part of me doesn't want to call him back, but for very petty reasons. Like, I don't want to call him until I've moved out of my parents' house, get my own apartment, a car, a career, and a super hot boyfriend. It's that whole "I'm doing so much better without you" nonsense.

I also don't really know what I'd talk about. The most significant thing that's really happening in my life is I'm dating that new guy, but, you know, THAT'S not an awkward topic to bring up with your ex.

Should I call him?

Would you call if you were in this situation?

So I just finished my first couch to 5k training.

I am wheezing like crazy. I used to have asthma, but haven't used my inhaler in like, at least 10 years if not more.
Is this normal? =\ It is hot, and I didn't wake up early like I wanted to and go out when it was not as hot and humid, so maybe that's why it seems like my asthma is flaring up?

anyone have any ideas?

I just watched the Tom Cruise Scientology video for the first time. It was both incredibly creepy, and hilarious.

FACT-CHECKING

My husband claims that in an episode of the GI Joe cartoon OR an issue of the comics, at one point Storm Shadow is flying a Rattler and bombs somebody. Can you verify this? Is he just playing the odds that at some point, every member of Cobra has flown a Rattler, and hoping I won't go look it up? This is VERY IMPORTANT.

Who is your favorite member of Cobra, or Cobra affiliate? Who is your favorite Joe?

Why don't I have a good GI Joe icon?

Have you ever had sex in a rowboat? If so how did it work out? Got any tips? :D

ETA: It worked! We anchored the boat and made sure not to rock it too much so it wouldn't tip over. The trickiest part was finding a part of the lake that was secluded enough that you couldn't see us from the path around the lake.

how much do braces drop someone's attractiveness?

i went out last night and turned heads. my friend turned into me and whispered, "just don't show your braces k?"

i'm self conscious of them anyway, i just am not sure if they matter when members of the opposite sex try to evaluate my attractiveness? do braces ruin someone;s "hotness"?

music taste

in my teens i was the kind of obnoxious kid who thought she was deep because she listened to some self righteous indie band who wore tight pants and whispered into the mic in a pathetic attempt to make "music". i attributed their relative obscurity to their genius, not lack of talent.

now however, i produly crank up hot 99.5 nod my head to the various "shitty" songs that are played. poker face and alejandro are my jam. party in the u.s.a and waka waka make my day. lol.

point being, my tastes in music have drastically changed. i can listen to "bad" music and thoroughly enjoy it for what it is without getting caught up in made up ideas about its superiority. people who leech onto indie obscure bands annoy me.

what do you think of the top 20 music these days?

what about the obscure bands that are so heralded?

what is truly "good" music ? what bands?

UGH! My Wii isn’t working. I’ve cooled it down, cleaned the dust out, cleaned the discs, referred to the operations manual (which isn’t actually helpful), and I still keep getting the message “The Game Disc could not be read. Refer to the Wii Operations manual for details.” This happens with *every* game disc.

Halllllp meeeee! What’s wrong with my Wii?

In New York, will I be able to change the picture on my driver's license? I just took the test and have the temporary license slip, and the license will come in the mail with my permit picture on it. I really wouldn't care, except the picture is from when I had obnoxiously long emo-style hair (eugh!). It really doesn't look like me, and in an isolated case about a month or so ago the clerk at a store asked me to show an additional form of ID to get my lottery ticket because I didn't look like the picture.

Have you ever disliked someone because of their pets?

Friends of mine have 2 mini wiener dogs and they're really badly behaved. I hate going over to their house because they jump all over me and bite me for the first 20 minutes I'm there, and whenever husband and I invite them to do anything they never want to do anything for more than an hour or two because they don't like to leave the dogs alone. I know it's unfair of me but I fucking hate those animals.

TQC, I recently acquired two kittens. I'm more of a dog person, so I'm not really sure wtf I'm doing. I've been following the directions on the can (one of the smaller cans, not the tuna fish sized) and it says approx. one can per day for cats 6-8lbs which is probably a little larger than these kittens. So I feed them like... a half a can twice a day sometimes two cans if they cry moar.

ARE THEY PLAYING ME OUT? Or are they really hungry? They cry every time I get up and sometimes they sit in front of me and just mew at me.

Do your cats do weird things/cry for no reason?

GETTIN' MAD AT THE INTERNET

Do you get into internet arguments easily? Is it hard for you to walk away once someone has confronted you/been offensive/whatever?

I never do, I'm too apathetic. If someone disagrees with me or I'm wrong I'll either not reply, or just reply and tell them it's not a big deal and is whatever. Been on the internet too long for that shit.

It seems that some teenager has given her family members my email address. Maybe her actual address is a letter off from mine or something. The fact remains that I've been receiving messages, forwards and whatever else for the past year.

Once I started getting personal information (family member's home addresses and phone numbers for parties and such), I emailed to say, hey, this isn't who you think it is.

On occasion, I still get a personal message intended for somebody else.

My question: Would it be super evil of me to start sending these family members pornographic e-cards from their "niece"?
