So at my college there is an all school announcement list. A few days ago there was an ad for some lady and trans-roughhousing club. Today, an angry person at school sent an email out TO THE ENTIRE school about how heteronormative it is to not expand this group to everyone. I guess the original post said something about being "female-sized". I think if you are a 700 pound 8 foot tall person who is a cis-female or someone who identifies as female, any size is female sized.
Here come the questions:
1. Was it wrong of me to send a private email to the respondent about their decision to publicly humiliate and ridicule the original poster?
2. The original post said there would be an activity called sticky hands. What is that?
3. What the hell is the point of a roughhousing club anyway?
I need to start packing my own lunch very shortly (starting next week) since the canteen at tafe is nasty/expensive. Could you suggest some easy and/or healthy meal/snack ideas? I'll have access to a microwave if that makes a difference.
What is something that made you laugh, but wasn't meant to be funny?
I was reading Four Myths About Pregnancy Sex, and this made me LOL. I'm just trying to imagine why my boyfriend would want to blow air directly into my vagina, forcefully or otherwise.
Myth 4: Oral sex is out. Thankfully, that's not the case, and it will become a convenient option when you get too uncomfortable to have actual intercourse. Just don't let your partner blow air forcefully and directly into your vagina. Doing so could cause a life-threatening air bubble in the bloodstream.
It's your friends birthday. You have recently fallen out with someone who you know the birthday person would like to be there. You suck it up and invite them anyway, y/n? Validate me TQC. Eta: I'm the not invited friend.
Is the MacBook Pro worth the additional money? If I purchased just the MacBook, I would configure it so it had nearly all of the technical specifications of the Pro, but my sister seems to think I should opt for the Pro because the case on her MacBook is fairly susceptible to getting beaten up. Is there any other reason on earth why I should spend more money for the Pro when they look virtually comparable?
Should I just get the MacBook and a fancy cover? If so, do you know of any awesome covers for them besides the ones currently in the Apple store?
Any other major life decisions you want to make for me? Thanks!
Because of job loss/poor money management/no self control, I managed to get around $950 in credit card debt, and I currently have no income. Instead of paying the $70 minimum payments between the two each month, I just took out a subsidized student loan to pay it off, and then I will pay back the student loan, so I don't keep gathering interest on the credit cards.
Is this a stupid idea, or a better idea to get out of a stupid situation?
DK/DC: How do you budget your money? Do you use a certain program, excel template, something like that? I'm in need of some money management skills asap.
When you're pissed off/having an argument with someone but you're stuck with that person for the day, do you apologize just to salvage the day, try to find a way home, stay pissy all day, or something else? When was the last time this happened to you?
Any TQC-ers here sociology majors? Or studied sociology?
I know that the subject focuses mainly on manifest function, manifest dysfunction, latent function and latent dysfunction. I know what they mean individually, but how do incorporate social examples into them? My textbook talks all about functions but nothing much about dysfunctions.
To those based in the States, are you able to watch Al Jazeera's live streaming channel? I heard that a lot of US internet providers won't host Al Jazeera, which really sucks if true imo. Are you hopeful or fearful about the revolution happening in Egypt right now? I'm too cynical to believe that anything will change in any significant way wrt the poor, but it's still awe inspiring to watch the people rise up and shake off the shackles of an oppressive regime.
How's your day going? It's sooooo hot here and I'm supposed to be packing up my house for the move and I just can't be fucked.
I've gotten into a rut with my current music library and it's all bleh to me right now. I need some different stuff. Intertube records can only go so far. Will you post videos of some of your favorite music? I will give anything at least one listen through.
DK;DC: Do you know how to read music or play a musical instrument?
I can read music somewhat well, and I can play piano ok and I'm learning guitar right now. I want to learn flute but idk how to be quiet and I live in an apartment and I don't want to annoy my neighbors, so that'll have to wait I guess.
The rules of the game are very simple. You post an empty comment with an icon of your choosing. Anyone else can respond to your icon with an icon of their own. There are to be no words, let the icons speak for themselves. You can also start your own thread if you don' t want to join in another one. Jump in as often as you want...
But, but!! *whine* I don't know -how- to make a blank comment.
Buckner and Garcia Some time around the eighties, Buckner and Garcia wrote a bunch of songs about video games, like Pac-Man Fever and a song about Astroids. The lyrics basically were nothing more than descriptions of gameplay, like "Hyperspace, Push on the button and I'm back in the race. Hyperspace, Shootin' my rockets all over the place." The question I pose is, what if Buckner and Garcia decided to make new songs based on video games released as recently as last year? What would be a song lyric for one of them?

You're doing this speed dating thing. There's 15 singles that you'll be chatting with for 5 minutes apiece. Here's a snippet of what you learn from each person. Which of these would you agree to go out with in the end?
"No, it's just a cold sore. I get them sometimes. Definitely not the herp-durp-durp. I wouldn't be here if I was socially unclean"
"I've attained a doctorate in psychology, and working on a second doctorate in anthropology, and have written numerous contributions to various publications. Now, what is it you do?"
"Wow, your boobs are just...wow. Oh, my name's Josh and I'm a business major and...damn, your tits are golden. I can't stop staring at them"
"....and then Missy had kittens, and I gave most away, but I still ended up with 3 more. That's how I got to have 11 cats. All indoor"
"Yeah, I'm sort of between jobs right now, but I'm really crossing my fingers that I get that callback at Hot Topic"
"Well, my last relationship ended when my partner committed suicide. That devasted me, especially because my previous relationship ended the same way"
"Their names are Linus and Lucy. I love my babies, though they are 11 now, but they're always be babies in my eyes. Sole custody, baby"
"Strict vegan. I'm really not that uptight about my health choices, but I must warn you that lips that touch meat cannot touch mine"
"So, it was now like the 8th day in a row, when my roommate said "Dude, you gotta stop playing Halo. Go out there and date, for fuck's sake". And that's how I ended up here"
"I've been in rehab now, for, um...3 months now? Each day is a blessing, for sometimes it's difficult to stay true..."
"You look just like Chris. Damn...you're really not Chris, are you? Uncanny resemblence. Not to put too fine a point on it, but Chris was the best lay I ever had. You're not them though, are you? Sigh"
"I have only 2 hobbies really. Coin collecting, and getting tattoos. Check out this sleeve. All Disney!"
"I'm pretty open about myself, and you should know that I did time several years ago. I was caught assaulting several street corner Santas and taking their money. Bought a lot of beer with it"
Seems like a cool person, but you notice a gold chain around their neck with a gold plaque that reads PLAYER
"Oh, don't be alarmed. I don't have a lazy eye. It's a glass one. It pops right out. See?"
Do you buy jewelry online? Can anyone suggest some good sites to buy earrings and necklaces from? Just cutesy jewelry is fine (like the type you'd find at a retail store or something), nothing fancy. Preferably cheap-ish.
Specifically, I'm looking for cute stud earrings but I'm not having much luck in store so I'm trying online. My ear piercings are fucked and uneven so if I wear dangling earrings, you can tell one is higher up than the other. :(
Ugh I can't get the LJ advanced search to work! I'm trying to find past comments I've made but no matter what I search for nothing comes up, even though I know the comments are there. How do I get it to work?
Is there any way to find out what communities you used to be a member of?
Yup one of these questions I haven't left the house today and why change that now amirite so I'm gonna order food from this place. What would you order from here? Their menu is in the pictures (they don't have a website that I've found) and I hope you're able to view it. I already know I want an order of wings and I don't wanna spend more than $12-15ish.
Okay I ordered wings and a tomato/mozzarella salad. It's ten to 7 now. Taking into consideration that there's snow E V E R Y W H E R E, when will my food be here?
Have you ever encountered anything ~*supernatural*~?
If so, what was your reaction?
When I was in high school a friend and I discovered a tunnel under a never-completed stretch of highway full of huge graffiti murals dated, one per year, back to the 1980s, and littered with plastic furnature. We have gone back a few times, but the tunnel never seemed to be there unless we need a place to stop and rest our feet. It wasn't a small tunnel, ether, the openings being 20 feet across and unblocked, and the ceiling 20-30 feet high. It's just that it seems to be replaced with an empty, unpainted tunnel.
Hey! I went into my freezer today to get something or another. As soon as I opened it I got hit with a terrible stink! The freezer works properly. There aren't any animals in there. I don't eat meat or dairy, so nothing is rotten. The fridge doesn't smell.
What could be making my freezer so stinky?
dk/dc: How many state capitols have you been to? Which ones?
edit: capitol buildings, capital cities - either one
I have to watch one of these movies and write a paper on how gender is performed during in it and how gender intersects with race and sexuality. I want to watch one that is actually enjoyable and I haven't heard of several of them so I want opinions because I can't choose on my own apparently.
I am out of shape and I went to the gym on Sunday. I stretched before I got on the ellipitcal and only was on it for 15 minutes because I overdid myself the week before and didn't want to do it again. Without a doubt, I once again have a really bad muscle cramp in my right leg.
I have just rubbed BenGay on it, so hopefully that helps - but what else can I do to relieve this horrible pain? It is making me dread going back to the gym.
Also, ways to prevent future horrible pains?
dk/dc - When was the last time you accidentally hurt yourself?
I'm making lunch on Thursday for myself and one other person. I'm definitely making porkchops but I'm kind of at a loss of what to do for a side dish. All I can think of is a salad, and while that's cool I figured you guys would have some great suggestions.
So what is a good side dish to prepare with porkchops?
also keep in mind I am terribly inept in the kitchen, so the simpler, the better.
dk/dc: what is your favorite dinosaur(s), and why?
I just remembered that I had a dream that Britney made the most amazing come back. There were lights flashing everywhere, crazy dance moves, great blonde hair flipping every which way... it was like it was 2001 again.
I really don't know where this dream came from. Did anyone recently have a "lol" dream?
Are there any commercials/jingles that make you never want to spend money at a certain place again?
Seriously, Subway's stupid five-dollar footlong song makes me never want to spend money there, just on the off-chance that one of my pennies will pay the salaries of the people who keep that song on my tv.
What is the last drastic thing you did to your appearance? Did you regret it afterwards?
I am going to cut off all my hair tomorrow, hopefully to get it as adorable as Ginnifer Goodwin's hair, but I am so nervous. I have a modified bob now, so it isn't like I am cutting off two feet of hair, but I am so nervous. I keep reminding myself it is just hair.
Have you (or anyone you know) bought something from corpse clothing before? Did you have a negative or positive experience?
All the reviews I'm seeing are their stuff takes forever to get be delivered, which I'm okay with. I'm just suspicious because I've only seen this hoodie out of stock on all other websites, and not on this one.
TQC, yesterday I had an "annual" at my gyno's office, and today I gave double red blood cells at my school's blood drive. Am I justified in sitting on my ass tonight, eating junk food and playing the Sims 3 until 1 am?
I'm a firm believer that everyone owns at least one article of clothing that they really shouldn't wear anymore. E.g. I have a pair of jeans that have holes in them and are like 2 sizes too big but are as comfortable as sweats. I really shouldn't wear them. I know I shouldn't wear them. But I do anyways.
What is that article of clothing? Will you post a picture of yourself wearing that article of clothing?
I haven't been to the eye doctor in about 3 years, and i wear glasses for being nearsighted. Lately though, i've been getting headaches all the time. Not bad ones, just ones that annoy you and go away and then come back(usually once a day).
I am now about 36 hours post-op from my septoplasty and caudal deflection correction. When I woke up from the general anesthetic, I was all "LULZ! PIECE OF CAKE! WHATTA JOKE!" and felt great all afternoon and evening. I was mostly just annoyed they were making me stay overnight in hospital.
WELL, starting at about 10 p.m. last night, the swelling, nose-crusties, bleeding, pain and general misery kicked in. I spent the worst night of my life in hospital, and am now home and more or less intermittently drugged and totally uncomfortable.
I get my splints out on Thursday. I've been misting my nose with spray as directed by my surgeon. In the meantime, any advice from TQC? If you had a septo / rhinoplasty, did you find any little tricks to minimize the discomfort or crusting or nasal blockaging? Tips? Tricks? Sympathy stories?
P.S. y'all were right about the general anesthesia -- super cool, not worth how terrified I was about it.
Is it strict to have food items shipped to your country? I want to send my S.O. a box of chocolates for Valentine's Day, but I vaguely remember him mentioning something about sending food being very strict.
