Do any of you wear wigs? If so why? (party, every day wear)
Do any of you have photos that you'd share of you in said wig? (Double points if it's a Kanekalon fiber one)

I just bought my first wig, mostly for going out in since I have short hair and sometimes I wish it was longer. Hasn't got here yet, not sure how 'natural' it will look.

What was that free site going around a while back where you could look people up by name? It was the one that people were getting really paranoid about, as it accessed public information.

For those in school/college/uni/whatever, what do you do when you know there is absolutely no way you can get your assessment done on time? Do you just do what you can? Completely give up?

Brought to you by me having an extremely hard time working on my assessment for my illustration class. I know there's no way I'm going to finish it by tomorrow so part of me just wants to go back to bed (it's 1:30am) because I don't see the point in being tired all day tomorrow for no reason. Urgh.

I can't sleep and I'm feeling dismayed about my situation. I'm more behind in school than I ever imagined, I'm working a low-paying job that I can't seem to save money from, I'm losing drive. I don't know what my issue is. How do you motivate yourself in times of crisis? How do you keep moving on?

Ah the miracle of kids

Sarcastic question is kind of only half sarcastic..

What are some good ways to annoy,irritate and just generally confuse my future offspring?

My dad once got me dressed and at the bus stop for school at 530am...on a Saturday.

My spouse thinks if its a boy we should raise him to believe he is the Highlander and Im trying to top this...any ideas?

Do you think giving an infant a brainfreeze or a taste of lime for fun is cruel?

Im mostly joking, I dont see any harm in pranking my kid once he/she is old enough to retaliate and any kid of mine is going to be well versed in the art of practical jokes.

At a party this weekend, some guy grabbed my friend's butt. She's a timid/overly nice kind of person so she just took it, but I can tell it bothered her. I thought about saying something but I didn't really want to start shit when it's not my house, you know?

Later in the evening the same guy grabbed my butt and I turned around and yelled at him to keep his hands to himself. He kind of walked away and waved his hand saying "okay okay", and at that point I was on my way out the door so I didn't want to make my ride wait by starting a fight. However, I could tell he didn't really feel the fear of my wrath and days later I am still pissed and wish I had at least publicly embarrassed him at the party for being a douche, if not scared him straight.

Does this still happen to you? I thought that after graduating middle school most idiots got over grabbing butts.
Ladies, what would you do if some guy grabbed your butt at a house party? What if it was your friend and she was really upset by it?

There is an aquarium that's has two positions open now, and I want to apply to both. One is a biologist position, the other is an assistant biologist position.

Does it look desperate if I apply to both?

In the beginning of the application, they asked if I was currently employed and if they could contact my current employer. I put down yes, and the contact information for my current supervisor.

Should I use my current supervisor as a reference as well? I'm only allowed to put three references on the application and I have...like, four, not including my current supervisor.

EDIT: I don't know if this makes a difference, but I worked for my four other references for almost two years, and then left two months ago to start my new job with my current supervisor. So it's not like it's been a long time since my four references have seen my performance, and I have known them all longer than my current supervisor.

So what makes a man want to get married in the first place?  I mean, most of the time all I hear from married guys is how much they can't stand their wives, how they miss their freedom,  how they call them the "ol ball and chain". Ya know, most of the time it's the guy who goes out and buys the ring and plans the proposal. So if you go through all this time, planning and money, then why complain if you asked for this life?

**And no, I'm not married.

If someone posted a job ad that is asking for a ridiculous amount of work for very little pay or has some other strange requirement for employment do you ever email them just to be snarky?

I just saw an ad where a woman was looking for "light help around the house" but she wanted photos of the insides of your cabinets and your garage. Other job duties involved rotating car tires, picking up dog poop, attending and taking notes at pta meetings. She was paying $9 bucks an hour.

What are some absurd job ads you've come across?

Will you give me tips on how to remove wet cat feces from my cat's fur? I tried dry and wet paper towels and ended up smearing it around, didn't get much out. She won't sit still long enough for scissors to cut it out. It's right by her butt and it smells so bad in this place now. She keeps licking it and I don't want her to get sick.

Stupid statements are stupid

I was talking with a friend earlier today, and she was trying to convince me that Jesus was white (not vaguely white ish/Mediterranean looking, but full on blond-hair-blue-eyes, pasty white) and that he was the first Christian. When I pointed out that Jesus probably wasn't white, and was actually Jewish, and it was his followers that were the first Christians, she got all snarky.
She also thinks that there are no Christians outside of North America/Europe/Latin America/Africa.
The stupidity...*facepalm*
So. whats teh dumbest question you've been asked?

Does this sound like anyone you know?

Or you, maybe? :)

I can sleep about 10-12 hrs a night. Then, take a 4 hour nap after work, and still have no problem going to bed at a reasonable time. I'm always tired and I talked to my doctor about it but..nothing gets done. I'm so sick of it, I never get anything done because I'm always tired/sleeping. :(

How many hrs a night CAN you sleep, if allowed?

What awesome things have happened to you recently?
I found a gift card with 5$ on it in the parking lot of a gas station the other day, so when I ran out of cat food this morning, I didn't have to borrow money from my parents to get some more food.

And when I got home this evening, I had a package waiting for me. Apparently my doctor's office noticed I hadn't filled two of my prescriptions because they were 150$ each, so they got a drug company to donate them or something.


I can't eat no-bake cookies without orange juice. I can't eat tuna casserole or roast beef sandwiches without cool ranch doritos. What can't you eat without a certain accompaniment?

I am applying to nursing school soon. The program I want to get into asks only for Nursing Entrance Exam results and official transcripts. I have the required GPA but I definitely wish it was a little bit higher.
