How do the people on the TV show Intervention not know they are on it? Are they just too stupid and high? Are they in denial and think it couldn't happen to them? Do the producers make up a show name to tell them?
Ok, I have to write this essay and I just cannot freaking start it. I usually start writing the body of the essay and leave the intro for the end if I'm stuck but I can't even seem to start writing the body even though I know exactly what I'm going to write. Does this ever happen to you? How do I get over this writer's block?
dk/dc: Why the hell do people pick their noses in their car and act like people can't see them? I caught some dude going to TOWN today and I just couldn't stop staring (we were at a stoplight).
Does anybody else have problems with Facebook? (i.e. your status,or other changes you made on your profile just "disappearing" when you go back on...) Every time I go on facebook, my picture is there but my old name that I changed back yesterday (from an inside joke thing,I know that's lame) is there again - then I log out, log back on & the picture is gone but the new name is on etc...it's driving me crazy!
(sorry if the terms "crazy" or "lame" are offensive to anyone)
So, I'm watching Anastasia and I have to know: is the thing about Rasputin foreshadowing his own and their deaths true? I've looked it up and it seems every other site contradicts each other.
Also, I have a rolly chair in my bathroom (because it hurts my back to stoop to scoop litter) and at night I hear it rolling around. Do I have adventurous ghosts, or are my cats involved in some sort of rolly chair olympics?
Yesterday I was cutting my toenails and I cut the 4th toe on my right foot's nail WAY TOO SHORT. As in, I cut deep into the skin, it was bleeding everywhere and now it hurts like a bitch and I"m limping because I can't walk on it properly. HOW LONG WILL IT BE UNTIL IT STOPS HURTING? D:
I should file instead of clip from now on, y/y?
Alternatively, happy Tuesday! What are you looking forward to and not looking forward to today?
It's raining outside. I'm expecting 5 UPS packages in the next few hours with over a thousand dollars worth of computer parts in them and if I'm not here to receive them they'll just sit outside my apartment. My friend gave me her cold and I feel kind of nauseous and sick. All I really want to do is take a bubble bath and go back to sleep until my 5:30 Spanish class (which I desperately need to study for anyway).
I have 2 classes this morning. One has an attendance policy, the other does not. Both are just lecture-type deals, nothing graded today. I know the professors really well and they know me.
Am I validated to skip class this morning or should I grow a pair and deal with it?
Do you think it's unethical to have someone edit essays for school/college? Take out the issue of whether or not the teacher forbade it or allowed it in their rules. Just on an ethical level. Cheating or not?
ETA: Maybe I should elaborate. The opposing side in my earlier debate kept arguing that half the point of writing essays was to learn how to write and how to correct all those little mistakes and arrange an essay and pick the right words and etc, etc yourself, so in light of that, having an editor was like cheating.
Good morning, TQC. My 22 y.o. son called me at 2:30 this morning to tell me he just got out of jail for a DUI. He says now he will never be able to get a second job that he has been looking for, that nobody will hire someone with a DUI. So, my question is: Is his life ruined, which is what he thinks?
Are you picky about your album privacy on Facebook? In other words, do you only make your albums visible to a certain few or are you so careful about who you keep on your friends list that this isn't a concern?
Would you buy a car from someone on Craigslist? Have you?
I'm in need of a car like whoa. It's been a month since the PT Loser was totaled and I so like not having a car payment. I've found 2 prospects at a dealer for $2000....but I'm not sure on the mileage yet..so I'm keeping my options open.
My budget for a car is $2,000...although I'd like to try to get one for $1,500.00..which is not impossible in my area at all.
What is the grossest (or funniest) thing to ever happen to you during sex? Or alternatively, a bad/funny sex story.
I was going at it with this guy, total cutie, complete package. He pulls my head in for a kiss and surprise SPITS in my mouth. I was too dumbfounded to be like, WTF man. Too grossed out to swallow. So as he's fondling and grabbing my everything, I'm laying there trying to figure out how I was going to get this spit out of my mouth without him noticing. As soon as he looked away, I immediately spit into my hand and wiped that shit on his couch. Gross.
For the past week and a half I keep thinking I'm getting sick, but it doesn't fully come on. What will happen is that my throat will get sore, I'll get chills and just generally feel bad for a few hours, then it'll just go away and reappear a few days later for only a few hours.
Yesterday I was meeting with students in my office. There's some sickness going around and my office is tiny, so I was in close proximity to various students all day. I woke up this morning feeling awful. It feels like these phantom sicknesses I was getting last week except worse and with a cough. I took today off to try and get over it because my week is jam-packed for the rest of the week. So, do you think this is whatever I've been dealing with finally presenting itself, or did I get something new from my students?
Are you sick? Feel free to bitch about it. What are your favorite things to do when you have a sick day?
We have a straight talk walmart cell and were a day late in buying our phone card. We bought it and put in the pin number. It says its pending but STILL no mins :( I cant call as I have no phone. Anyone familiar with straight talk?
Why does my nose burn and feel super dry and like it's about to start bleeding for no reason? ((the more non-srs, the better))
on another nose-related question - every time I shower, I sneeze about 10 times (I wish that was exaggerating) after I get out of the shower. Why is this happening? (It's not the shampoo or anything, I've switched it up over the years, and it only happens when I'm at college so I'm wondering if something in the water from the town is doing this)
I have a 10 month old, who is 31" tall and 30 pounds. The police talked to me with him, and asked if he was still rear facing in his car seat. I said no, because he is too heavy and too tall. They gave me a long lecture about how since he is under 1 year, he should still be rear facing.
I have looked all over google, but I think my google fu is lacking. I cannot find anywhere that says that he MUST be rear facing, even though he meets the height and weight requirements. Does anyone know anywhere that says it is a legal requirement in Ontario that children his age MUST be rear facing?
Is a handful of baby carrots cooked in a tiny bowl of hot water with a teaspoon of low-fat butter, half a diced up banana, 8 ounces of ice water, 5 ounces of skim milk, and a piece of wheat bread with a tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter (like a mini sandwich) a healthy, small lunch for a five year old boy? Is it too little? Too much? Edit: I know he should stop when he's done eating, but he has a problem of over eating. He's been known to keep eating well over him not feeling hungry anymore, so I'm always worried I'll give him too much food or too little. Same with drinks. And the measurements were just rough guesses, I'm sorry. xD
Has anyone here had to help raise/mostly raise a child when it's not there's/when you weren't the parent (bio or not)?
Why does this generation/country (the US, but I think it's fair to say most of the first world countries) have such a sense of entitlement?
I'm thinking of all the online piracy. . .movies, music, books, programs. . .it's like we think, "I want it, and I deserve to have it for free." Why are we like this?
ETA: Obviously the piracy is just one example of this entitlement. We're just pretty full of ourselves these days. And this post was kind of inspired by this blog post: http://saundramitchell.com/blog/?p=4258
Has anyone looked into or actually gotten veneers? Details?
A while back, I had a root canal (that I don't think I really needed) by a dentist who was more than likely high at the time (a few months afterward, he was arrested for stealing drugs from his office and some other things) and fucked up my tooth. It still hurts it certain circumstances, but part of it has also turned a dark color. It's not a stain--whitening doesn't help it. Of course, it is one of my front teeth. It makes me feel extremely self-conscious and I don't smile enough, and I would really like to do something about it. I've been considering veneers but I know they're expensive and blah idk.
I'm watching Glee. If you like Glee, what is your favorite scenes/quotes? (anything from Brit is amazing <3)
If you don't like Glee - why not? I'm interested as to what you find unlikeable, since all my friends basically say "they ruin every song they cover and they're all shitty stereotypes of high school kids".
If you dgaf, what was the best class you ever took (high school or university - I don't know how many schools earlier than that that really offer electives or beyond standard required classes per grade.)
OK, TQC, I've dropped the ball. I have to bring snacks for my law journal tomorrow morning, and have no idea what to get. They're a pretty health-conscious crowd, and generally people do breakfasty foods or the like. TBH I've never gone to one of these events (they happen every week on Wednesdays) but it's required by membership, so yeah. I pass a grocery store on the way into class, so getting it won't be a problem, I just don't know what TO get. It's for about 20-30 people, and they'll reimburse me for whatever I get, within reason (I'd say stay under $20?).
So what should I buy, TQC?
ETA: Someone else is providing a giant bag of bagels, I'm just on the snacks/sides side.
How can I get my mom to stop putting the laundry (clean) on the kitchen table and leaving it there? Especially my dads underwear. I mean it's a common courtesy and not unreasonable in the least to want to eat at a table that doesn't have someone's tighty whities on it, am I right? Yet I just tried to take them into their room where they belong and she exploded.
I had accidentally ran my car into a pole today. The right fender and lights are pretty much smashed and it costs $1600 to fix it completely. It only costs $200 or so for the repair shop to hammer the fender back in place and put back the lights so that they can be functional. The car will still have a horrendous dent on it, but at least the lights work and whatnot.
What was a stupid accident that happened to you? What was the maximum amount of money you spent fixing your car?
I bought a box of candy at Walgreens today and when I went to open it, both the plastic wrap and the cardboard box itself were slightly open... not like it had been opened up and tampered with, but just like it didn't attach all the way when they were putting it together. One side of the box had no glue on the flap at all, so it was clearly some kind of factory error. I was like two seconds out of the store when I realized this, but I was too tired and hungry to bother going back in to exchange it for another box. I then proceeded to eat like half of the candy. How stupid was this? Am I going to die?
I'm booking a flight to London and one of the tickets I'm looking at has me flying out of the US on US Air (subtitle says operated by Canada Air) and then connects in Toronto. Then, Canada Air flies from Toronto to Heathrow.
However, the layover is only 1 hour. Is that long enough? I've never been to YYZ so I don't know how confusing the airport is to navigate. Also, I'm not sure if I'll have to get my baggage checked again, since I'm technically switching airlines...
inspired by a previous post... can we just have a "men wearing good suits" pic post? or women. they just have to be good suits. Or just post pics of what clothes you like your prospective mate to wear?
I bought a bottle of cheap merlot a little over a month ago. I drank a couple glasses, stuck the cork back in, and put it on a side table. Now I finally have time to drink some again. It's still good, right? I know basically nothing about wine and don't want to kill myself by letting it sit (albeit corked) for so long.
Could a good tailor take in the waist of draw-string pants? I imagine a good tailor could do anything but I don't know anyone who's had that done.
Does anyone else have a combination of measurements that just do not exist together in any size? If yes, is there one or more measurements you tend to "sacrifice" in favor of fitting the others correctly? Or do you just get clothes altered?
Do you have anything super exciting planned for the rest of the week? If you do give details!
For those of you who watch Intervention: does anyone recall the episode with the guy who got his girlfriend and her best friend pregnant? Or something like that. I can't remember what his addiction was. I want to watch the episode and I'm having trouble finding it. Anyone remember his name?
Will you give me an arbitrary percentage amount? I'm going to use this to gauge my chances of nabbing one of the six seats left in a class that I can't add until the business office stops being a dick.
What's your favorite snack food? Where does Jesus belong in your life?
