do you believe in love?

like love, be together forever, you're the only one for me, marriage/long-term commitment if you're not into the legality of it, children(if you're into it), all that shit?


sometimes i don't think it actually exists, that it's all just attraction that turns into attachment, that just all ends terribly, and that makes me sad :(

I'm worried I'm not going to get this job and then I'll have to move to Seattle and find another job that I don't want away from all the people I care about because there's no work in Portland. Also I'm worried that my entire life is starting to revolve around this guy, and that's not the sort of person I want to be.

I was just hired as a courtesy clerk at Safeway (grocery store) and yesterday I did almost all of my training on the computer except for maybe a 30 minute physical walkthrough. I may have passed all the little quizzes in the computer training but I learn best when physically shown, and for me that takes longer than a quick explanation of how it's done and only doing it once. I'm really nervous about being called into work because I feel like I'm going to make a complete idiot of myself and not know how to do anything.

 TQC, I need interview help!

I have a job interview tomorrow at 7:00PM. The person called while I was in class, so left the room and I scheduled the time without looking at my calendar. As it appears, my high school's play is tomorrow night at 7:00PM, and I really don't want to miss it. 

On a scale from 1 to 10, how much of a no-no would it be for me to call and ask about rescheduling to an earlier time? The guy said the interviews were being conducted from 5:00 to 7:00 and that there were earlier spaces available, but this was also yesterday around 1:30PM. 

What should I do? ):

Plz identify my bugs [Oct. 27th, 2010|10:14 am]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[amandavanessa]
OK, so we have bugs in our house that with no amount of Googling we've been able to identify. They are about 1cm long, are sorta shaped like an elongated tear drop, look like they slither along the floor rather than walk (but that may not be the case) and live under dirty clothes. If our clothes are in the hamper, there is no sight of them.

But when we leave clothes on the floor, as soon as you pick them up, you see these little bugs scatter into the baseboards. This happens in whatever area of the house that clothes are on the floor, and only those areas. We live in a rural area and get spiders, mice and centipedes but have no idea what these are. HALP?

Following from another question that was posted here.

Is it racist when a movie that portrays Japanese character/s but have Chinese actor/s playing the roles?

Vice versa?
What about any Asian character being played by an actor with a different Asian Background?

Examples :"X-men 2"*, "Memoirs of a Geisha"

*In X-men 2 Kelly Hu played Yuriko oyama when originally the character is Japanese and Kelly Hu is Chinese.
(Only asking because I am pretty sure these arguemnt about movie roles and race were not around when these movies were released. Or at least I did not see the arguement)

Have any of you ever used that crystal deodorant thing? Or do you know anyone who has (do they smell?)??? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF IT?

My Aunt uses it and recommends it to EVERYONE whenever she has a chance, omg. So, today when I was in the drugstore buying Dr Pepper Lip Smackers, I SAW CRYSTAL DEODORANT and it was ON SALE, so I bought some! I scrubbed out my armpits (because I had regular deodorant on from this morning) and used it about an hour ago, but I have just been sitting here in front of my computer the whole time, so I haven't had an opportunity for potential sweatiness or smelliness or anything yet.

Alternate question: Dr Pepper Lip Smackers = BEST chapstick/lipbalm/whatever EVER, AMIRITE? I also like their Bubble Gum one and the Jelly Bean one (but I haven't seen that one around in ages, so IDK if they make it anymore. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ~FLAVOR~ of chapstick/lipbalm/whatever?

For some reason my dad wants to go to TGI Fridays for dinner tonight. We have not been there in many years, and I hate it. I know that they used to have at least one vegetarian option, which seems to be gone now. I found some options while googling but they seem to be gone now too. I've looked at their menu and there are a few things on the kids menu that I could eat.

Is it okay to order from the kids menu? What if I ask for an adult portion?

If your a vegetarian who has had the misfortune of going to TGI Fridays recently, what did you get?

Let's say you're on an online dating site, and you've been corresponding with this totes hot/awesome person. You're all ready for the date, and when you meet this person, you discover they're in a wheelchair. How do you react?
Would you be totally fine?
Would you have a lot of questions?
Would you be kind of peeved that they didn't tell you this before you met?

On the contrary, if someone disclosed to you during the correspondence that they were physically handicapped and wheelchair bound, would it be a deal breaker?

Please be brutally honest. I have a very dear friend who is finally getting himself out into the dating world and would appreciate honest opinions.

Health Insurance and Pre-existing Conditions [Oct. 27th, 2010|06:28 pm]

[destinygirl001]
I do not have health insurance and I am unfamiliar with how it works.

It is very possible, according to my obgyn and my research, that I have fibromyalgia. I can't currently afford health insurance, but it is probably the cheaper alternative to paying for doctors visits and treatments/medications.

Question: If I pay cash to see a doctor who diagnoses me with fibromyalgia, can I then get health insurance and have my visits and treatments covered by the insurance? Or, would the fibromyalgia be considered a pre-existing condition at that point and related visits/treatments not be covered?


Also, anyone have personal stories about their fibromyalgia?

People who use light boxes to treat seasonal depression:

Would you by any chance (through reading or personal experience- i'm looking around right now) know if using it a few hours off will affect its uh... effectiveness much? My shift at work can start and end anywhere between 8am and 11pm and there's no real predictability to it. Would using it at 9:30 or 10:00am most days, and then 6:30am other days affect things much? 6:30am would be the oddity most of the time, not 9:30. I'd be using it right after waking up every day, it's just that i don't wake up at the same time every day. I've read a lot that it's best to use it at the same time each day, but does anyone know if there might be a really noticeable difference if i don't?

1.On the weekend do you feel the need to get out and hang out with your friends, or do you like to be alone?
2.If you are unable to attend an awesome event with your friends, do you get upset and feel like you missed something, or do you just say whatever and wait for next time to have a fun time?

Let's say that i transcribe a modern piece of music that is under copyright.
It's in a totally different key signature, but i had the intentions of preserving the melody.
It is then recorded, and makes way onto local television (throughout the neighborhood)
could i be under any legal trouble if the copyrighter finds out?
keep in mind that it's in a different key

I'm having a Halloween party this Friday and today I walked in the rain to pick up freakin balloons. The balloons are for a game: guests pop a balloon and inside is a piece of paper with either "punishment" or "reward" written on it (rewards are cheap little prizes, the punishment is to take a shot that combines everything in the liquor cabinet). But I completely forgot we have fucking stucco ceilings, and upon getting them safely home two popped on the stucco. So I moved them into the kitchen and after 5 minutes another one popped out of nowhere- the ceiling is perfectly flat and smooth.

Why did a balloon pop in the kitchen?
If they keep popping, can you think of another fun alternative for people to get papers out of?

ETA: I never knew so many people were so skeeved by balloons popping! Sorry guys :P

What do you think of this article? Do you think the nurse should be charged with anything? 

How do you accidentally switch off a ventilator?! 

article tl;dr: A home nurse accidentally switched off her quadriplegic patient's ventilator, causing him to go without air for nearly 40 minutes. She did not know how to correctly resuscitate him. He is now severely brain damaged, and pretty much can't do anything. The nurse has been suspended from her agency, but that's it.

Where can I find nice business clothes for under $20 per item, besides Goodwill if I am lucky?

I'm looking for physical stores, not online. I have to try on clothes before I buy!

One of the 15 year olds that I tutor made a request today - That I help her find books that don't include sex scenes. She said that they make her uncomfortable and that she's had to put down many books because the writing became too descriptive.

TQC, but are some good teen-friendly books that don't include sex?
This girl mentioned that she likes Sarah Dessen, and she just finished The Memory Keeper's Daughter.

Does it ever frustrate you when something you love is underrated/not very well known?

Since I hardly pay any attention to mainstream music anymore, i've been actively seeking out music and musicians who aren't receiving any mainstream attention and researching lesser known musicians from the 80's and 90's who only had one or two hits and fell into obscurity after a few years. I've fallen in love with this music, but now it's starting to get on my nerves when I think about all of the garbage that's popular now and can't get over how many people with actual talent have been almost totally ignored over the years.

so i like my old roommate, and i know he likes me. OK, i don't KNOW, but i'm pretty sure, and so is everyone else who knows us. but he's dating this other girl, which is weird because he told his best friend(who told me) that he said he doesn't like her that way. but she's really pushy and he's really nice and a "you don't know until you try" kind of person.

so i thought things might start happening between us. nothing has happened but you know, we're really touchy-feely, we click, when we're together we're the only people we pay attention to(noticeably).

but anyway! so now he's dating this girl! and he never told me! why?! i mean, he acts like nothing changed.


i mean, i guess he could think she told me but me and her never talk or hang out anymore and havene't for a while.

So this is kinda gross but too bad.

I got ridiculously sunburned on Saturday because I forgot my sunscreen and my friends did not have any either. My chest has now turned into several small blisters that basically if I touch, they will pop.

1. Does this warrant staying home from work? (I am perfectly capable of doing my job, just that I will be tending to leaky!chest every 5 seconds and whatnot. I am not trying to get out of work, I just don't know if I should go or not.)
2. How do I treat this? I'm guessing like Solarcaine or something. Would aloe be effective for open blisters?

My boyfriend lives in an apartment complex. On the floor above him live a man and a woman -- they're not a couple. They drive really shitty cars and bring really, REALLY skanky women back to their place pretty much every day. We've never seen the same woman twice until recently. No men ever come to the house, instead, the man of the couple will drive whatever skank they brought over to another location -- who knows where. What do you think they're doing? Having threesomes? Prostituting the women? Other ideas?

A lot of people ask pronunciation questions. Do any of you know the international phonetic alphabet? If you've been forced to learn it for some reason another, has it ever come in handy? Do you have a favorite phoneme?

Do you have any words anyone has ever made you repeat because you say them "wrong?" 




I learned in my History of the English Language course for my English Lit major. It sometimes helps in choir when we're doing foreign songs and we're working on pronunciation. My favorite phoneme is æ because it's fun to write. 

I really hate IPA but that has nothing to do with anything. 

I'm from north western Indiana and people at my central Indiana school make me say words with a's (or the a sound) in them because I pronounce it longer than they do. Chicago, apple, acorn, crayon... Blech.
