If you had to verbalize your style/sense of dress to someone, how would you do it? Say that you couldn't show yourself or pictures to the person you're describing it to, so be descriptive. Maybe you could include info about a celebrity who embodies your style or a store/brand.

What's your favourite perfume? Why?

I chose a new perfume solely because I liked the name of it and it ending up smelling like an old lady perfume so I'm looking for suggestions for a new one.

Also, do you feel if you wear a particular perfume too often, it starts to smell bad to you?
There have been times when I've worn a perfume too much for too long and it starts to smell nasty. I even bought a new bottle cos I was worried it may have gone off but it still smelled gross to me. I still can't wear Chanel's Allure Sensuelle or Coco Mademoiselle which sucks because I remember loving them so much back in the day.

 <lj-cut text="its a long one">(background info - My flat went on fire a month ago. M mum was living with me at the time. A candle was left unattended. You can imagine the rest)

After the fire, Mum got put into emergency respite (care home) as she has health issues and at this moment in time it's best place for her. We are hoping to get her into a sheltered housing complex which we had spoke about long before this happened. I've got somewhere arranged for myself and i'm waiting on repairs being done in a flat before I can move in.

Because we were in rented accommodation, my (ex) landlord isn't too happy that I burned his house down. I called him after the fire, where his attitude left a lot to be desired. He was unpleasant, showed very little compassion and in general came across as a heartless prick. (In saying that, I do reaalise he;'s got every righgt to be annoyed but a little sympathy would have gone a long way. I was a crying my eyes out)

He said,";I do understand this can;t be easy for you right now Georgina but you have to remember I've just lost a property' To which I shouted at him how we had been lucky to get out alive, i had no idea where my cat
was, and between us we may well have lost 80yrs of photos and stuff and i was now homeless to which he told me to stop interuppting him. 
I asked if there had been anything I could save from the flat . He told me thhat everything was gone. I asked if I could get in anyway, he said I couldnt because he had to wait on insurance company and fire investigation finishing. I didnt like it but i did understand where he was coming from.

A few days later I was so emotional and angry that i broke the padlock off the door and went inside I needed to see if my cat was still there. 

The room where it had started was completly gone nothhing but ask and rubble. The smoke damage wsa extensive in thhe rest of the place but by no means was anytihnng completly ruined. I got mostly everything I wanted out of there. I sent himi a text a few hours later saying. 'just to let you know that your property has been sitting unsecured for the past 12 hours since I broke in.No I know i shouldnt have but i needed to look for my cat & as it turns out, save my belongings that i was led to believe had been ruined.  Feel free to inform the police, you'll find me at the following address. I dont give a damn. Sorry for your loss.
He never respondeed but I saw that he had secured the door a few days later

I called him around a week ago to see if he had any idea when I could get in yet and it turns out he is telling me the investigation is still ongoing but when I spoke to CID, they confirmed it had finshed less than a week after the fire started
 We had no heating for four months because he didn't want to pay for a new boiler as we (mum and I) were eligible for a 4000£ grant; from the government to get a whole new heating system installed. It was taking forever to process and during one of the coldest winters Scotland's had, my Mum was taken into hospital twice with bad chest infections (She has COPD and the dr confirmed the lack of heating did play a part in her health deterioating. )

The lock has been very loose on the door for over two years. He's never fixed it.

The downstairs neighbours ceiling caved in a year ago because of a leaka in my kitchen. He was supposed to be getting insuraance to sort it out but neighbour told me thaat it's never been fixed.

He never chased me for rent arrears and on several occasions, I tried to make a payment to him he never got back to me about getting it.

He made it clear that he didn;t want me there at the same time as the insurance compaany. 
A lot of this makes me think that something's not right here. 

Why is he being like this? Someone suggested he might have no insurance and he's in the shit. I don't know.

Any idea where I stand on this one? He has said that he wont stop me from getting my things but since he doesnt answer any calls or texts I dont know if or when its going to happen. I was planning to go to a solicitor for some legal advice but I dont know if i've shot myself in the foot by breaking in,

Have you ever had your home go on fire? What happened? How did you cope? 
Thank you :) </lj-cut>

Do you know the differences between Kegel (nine-pin bowling) and bowling?
Which one have you done?

ETA some answers my dad's reading to me: kegel uses smaller balls without holes. pins are on a smaller surface but it's much harder to knock all 9 pins down. It's less recreational and less fun, takes more physical preparing because the way to throw a ball in kegel is harder. You can't bring your own ball to a kegel alley. In bowling, it's easier to win against pros and games more rarely have the same winner. In kegel, you can't party and relax and do shit in the alley.

OKAY so my irl friend was reblogging and replying to this thing on tumblr and people were saying milk bags were funny and illogical and they had never seen them before. I really need to know:

like, how do you buy your milk and how do you keep it at home?
do you think milk bags (and I guess Canadians) are stupid?

Collapse )
eta: I'm not so much shocked that nobody uses them, I'm more shocked that other people don't understand it. it's just a difference in culture or some shit like that, no big deal. ALSO I'M SORRY I REPEATED SOMETHING YOU'VE ALREADY SEEN ON THE INTERNET.

When writing a musical, what do you think would be the most difficult job?

-Writing the music, and making it different and memorable.
-Writing the lyrics, making it rhyme and telling the story as well.

I'll have to go with lyrics. I can't rhyme worth a shit, even when I was writing two line poems for school.

sorry for the tl;dr

I've got this friend who gets involved with men online who usually live really far away, and she builds up a lot of unrealistic expectations very fast. said friend is also very clingy (towards me, other friends, and guys she's talking to) and she's very insecure. she needs constant reassurance that she is liked, wanted around, etc. etc.

I've seen her get into things with guys who ultimately end up just disappearing time and time again with no warning. I'm not doubting that most of these people may just be douche bags, but based on what I know (and what is too long to describe here), I honestly believe that some of the issue here is her lack of confidence and her downright need to feel validation from a man. she isn't happy with herself unless there's a guy wanting her, and she can be rude sometimes to these men when she's not getting what she expects.

I've tried telling her my honest opinion gently, but she's super sensitive.

so my question is: at what point can I politely say to her that I'm tired of hearing about the same situation over and over again? how would I say it? have you ever been in this position?

it's been going on for years now, and I really feel like when we talk it's all she's concerned about. I'm worried for her, but I'm sick of babying her. I feel like I can't be bluntly honest without hurting her feelings.

Sad Tired Wife :(

My husband SUCKS at sleeping in the same bed as me.

Every night I am confined to the very edge of the bed, forced to take up only the width of my own body, and he still wakes me up by poking me in his sleep with his foot or elbow. (I am a light sleeper, and being touched wakes me.) He says he tries to start the night as far away from me as possible, but he still ends up in the middle of the bed. I try to push him away sometimes, and sure, that makes him move back to his side (still in his sleep) but the damage is already done and I'm awake.

I've tried to google this but found nothing. Is there any way to "train" a spouse to stay on his side of the bed? Also, we only have a double bed in our small apartment. Do you think this problem would end if we got a kingsize bed in the future?

Today I'm mad at being woken up and I'm thinking about poking him hard enough to wake him up every time he wakes me up in the future. Does anyone think this would train his sleep self into staying away from me?

When they ask in an interview,

"Why do you want this job?"

How can you respond without sounding like a desperate, money hungry person?

Is the generic, "I feel like my experience can really help contribute to the growth of the current environment blah blah" good enough or should you go with your strengths and stuff?

I want to tell them that I know how to get it done and I'm a fast learner and I'm pretty much an awesome unicorn like worker who's going to bring the magic and rainbows to the job...

I just feel really nervous and I need this and stuff.

So I've been offered a new job... Pending a 'background check'. What sort of things do you think they'll be checking? I mean, it's just a retail job, it's not like I want to work for the FBI! My friend says as long as I'm a legal citizen, have no criminal record and haven't been made bankrupt then I'll be okay... Do you think she's right?
Also- when they offered me the job they said "it's probably best not to hand your notice in to your current employer yet, just in case something comes up in the background check" okay fair enough... But they called today and said they need my managers phone number so that they can confirm my employment history for the last 2 years (I've been at my present job for 2.5yrs)... So now I have to tell my manager... Awkward much?! How should I phrase it? :S I'm really scared that something will go wrong with the check and I will have to stay at my current job, where they will hate me for trying to leave... Argh :(

I'm borrowing an ice-cream maker but now am at a loss as to what to make. I want interesting flavours rather than the usual vanilla, choc, strawberry. My first batch was pistachio and rosewater.

What are some interesting (and tasty) ice-cream flavours? (gelato/sorbet count)

I just remembered the ice-cream/sorbet place near me makes a cherry ripe sorbet (cherry, chocolate, flaked coconut). Omg yum. Maybe I should try to make that.

I am NOT computer savvy, so if this really obvious, feel free to pelt me with a mackerel or something.

Is there a way to record/save facebook chats to send them to someone else? This woman is unloading a bucket of crazy on me as we speak, and every other statement is "DON"T TELL D I ASKED YOU THIS!"

Of course I want to tell D this. How can I do it?

I want him to know because the things she is saying, they are just beyond the pale. I've never spoken to her before, she just had to friend me because D was my friend and she needs to know everyone he does. It's bizarre, but it's never affected me until today.

ETA: She has a mutual friend on chat and is blasting him, too. What is wrong with her?

I haven't SPOKEN to D in 10 years.

What should I do if Comcast doesn't fix my internet tomorrow?
I've been without it for 4 days now and am currently at Starbucks borrowing the web here.
When I am home I become desperate and tether from my phone to get something comparable to dial-up.

Unfortunately, I really need the freaking internet for school.

AND just for some background:
They came yesterday to fix it and it only worked for 3 minutes. But the stupid technician left before even checking if it was actually working. He never came to my apartment or called to see if it was working.
I called them and they decided I needed a new modem. I went out in a storm this morning to go to Comcast and got a new modem that is doing the same thing that the old modem was doing.
They are supposed to come tomorrow morning.[/edit]

This might be a dumb question, but:

My boyfriend bought me three boxes of thin mints the other day. He left them in his truck for the afternoon and they melted. I put them in the freezer to harden back up, but now they're all stuck to each other. I can't pull them apart, and when I try to cut them with a knife or anything, they just crumble/break.

If I put them at "room temperature", they'll melt again because my mom keeps the heat on 81F even in the summer. :|
Will they soften up enough to unstick from each other if I put them in the fridge for a while instead of the freezer? Or am I destined to just have thin mint bricks?

Online storage for video files

 I have 5.39 GBs left on my macbook -_- I don't want to use an external hard drive for various reasons... Is there a reasonably priced cloud storage service online where I can shove all my video files but still access easily, and then delete the original files from my computer? Most of the ones I'm finding are "backup" systems which will delete the files if they don't remain on your hard drive. What do you use, TQC techies?

So I went on my super interview today and it went excellent!

However, the job that I applied to back at the beginning of the month, then claimed they weren't hiring when I called back has now called me back asking if I can come for Orientation

Next monday

Thirty minutes before my class starts, even though I put on my application and told the interview lady that I was in school.

Super awesome excellent job is going to call me tomorrow or Saturday with a response. Random, slightly undesirable retail job took three weeks to call, wants me to start at a bad time, and well is kind of a shambly looking store and it does look like hell on earth but hey, it's a job right?


Should I call back shady retail job and tell them, hey, I can't do it I have another offer (possibly)

Or actually wait until I hear back from from awesome job a definite YES or NO then call to negotiate a better time with shady retail job?

Either way it looks like I'll be calling/approving/whatever on Saturday or Sunday, which is a delay. I do need a job, but I don't want to totally snub the retail job just in case nothing else happens.

Some friends and I want to put together a little literary group where we can send each other whatever writing projects we're currently working on and get feedback from one another. It'll be mostly conducted online, since we're all separated by fairly large distances.

Is Google Buzz any good? Or should we make a private LJ community to which only we have posting access? (Most of the members of the group don't have accounts on LJ though.)

I'm not sure what is going on with me, but I feel so apathetic to everything. My room should be condemned but I just look at the filth and roll over and go back to sleep. I can't get excited for anything. My parents yell at me and I just stare back at them. My girlfriend was online today and I just let myself fall asleep instead of talking.

What is wrong with me? How can I change? How do I make myself get up and clean my room?
