Do you ever think about the various illnesses you've had throughout your life and realize that, had you been unlucky enough to have been born before modern medicine, you'd probably be long dead now from those things?
Sometimes I think about the tooth abscesses I had as a child and how, if I had been a neanderthal or something, I probably would have died right then from an infection traveling to my brain. Same with the UTI I had in February. And these things seem so minor to us now :/
Will you name three things that, if you brought up to a cashier, would make them look at you funny?
SF Bay Area
New Haven, CT
If you actually live in one of these places, talk 'em up. :D
How do you stay healthy?
Alternatively, what's your favorite indulgence?
They have been stored unrefrigerated in a cabinet, and show no signs of mold or anything bad. A little hard and probably stale but it's gonna be toasted so whatever, right?
(I already ate it)
So TQC, in oh two weeks or so, I'm going to be alone in my house for about a week [my folks+brother+younger dog will be gone from Saturday to Saturday].
Naturally, as I tend to whenever I have an extended period of time to myself, I've been scheming ways to ask/mention it to my S/O that it'll just be me in the house and that he should come over
So far what I've got is:
"Want to spend a few days somewhere cat-free? I've got the house to myself all week; you could come over, if you want? No parties, just us, and you can use our Internet."
How does that sound?
[Background info: he's at his sister's right now so I don't want to ask now because he's not at home. And the "no parties" line is because the last two times I've invited him over he's declined, not even bothering to act like he wanted to come but couldn't (once to a party I threw for my 21st in which there were no parents and a lot of alcohol and once to a party my folks threw in which there were neighbors+a lot of alcohol). The cats thing is only 'cause he's got a lot of cats and he's kinda allergic to them.]
Thanks for your help~!!
ETA: Not asking for relationship advice thanks. Just advice on the question I posted. I know we've got issues and I'd really rather not deal with them now.
How do you feel about popping zits?
Inspired by my constant fidgeting and extractors being interesting
What is your favorite beauty trick? Can be for skin, hair, nails, anything
Do you get distracted by random things at night? Examples?
UPDATE IT'S NOW ON MY WALL
UPDATE 2: IT WAS ON MY FLOOR AND THEN I OPENED MY APARTMENT DOOR AND IT WALKED OUT INTO THE HALL. then i didn't want it to come back so in my terrified logic i thought sprinkling pepper at the bottom of my door would be a good idea? and now i have been sneezing for the past five minutes. the spider kind of won.
OTHER: Do you have a spiritual faith or creed? What is it?
WICCANS: Do you really practice traditional British Wicca, or are you just kind of paganish? Do you like the term Wicca?
ATHEISTS: Why do you hate Krishna? He just wants you to be happy.
HINDUS: Should I type Krishna, or Krsna, or just what? Are there any Hindu TQCers?
Some say it is, and I have no idea why. The singer of the song is almost literally saying, "Come do me." How can it be rape if she's begging for sex?
Precisely how many effing things can I kick before work?
Hint: it's more than two already.
I have a bathroom scale at home that I haven't used in a while. I weighed myself on it on Sunday and it said I was 9 pounds less than what the gym scale said. I thought maybe it was just broken (it's kinda old) but then yesterday I was at Target, and I tried out one of the digital scales right off the shelf and it agreed with my bathroom scale.
Which scale should I trust? The one that gives me good news or the one that gives me bad news? Should I just buy a new scale and go with whatever that one says?
How often do you weigh yourself?
If someone on your friends list admitted to committing a crime in their journal, and there was enough info in the entry and/or their user info to pinpoint where the crime took place, would you turn them in? Does the severity of the crime matter?

The thing is she emailed me with her full name and I also found her on facebook. If she continues to ignore me is this something I could potentially bring to a lawyer? I wouldn't want it to come to that but if she keeps ignoring me I could bring it up.
EDIT: I did ask her what kind of condition the phone was in and she did not mention that is was suspended
Also, I am aware I had made a bad decision. Please do not remind me.
Which should i ride to: Baskin Robbins or Dairy Queen?
They're the same distance from my house.
What should i get once i'm there?
I have several documents, but I'm afraid I'm reading this thing wrong.
Do I need only A, and I forget about B&C?
Or do I need something from A or B, AND C? (so it's A&C, or B&C?)
I have my passport, driver's license, but my birth certificate is from a different country other than the USA. My SSC says that I am not valid for employment (either it's old or I got it before I could work or something). I have been an American citizen for 10 years, and have been employed before but I don't know which documents I used. Trying not to freak out bc I gave in my two week already. Thanks for your help.
If you're not, can we see a picture of your sibling(s)?

For the past few weeks, a month or so, I've been getting headaches every day. usually in the late afternoon, sometimes later, sometimes earlier. They're not usually SEVERE, just irritating. A throbbing, sometimes shooting pain, hard to locate. I usually just take an Aleve (the pain reliever I happen to have) and it goes away. Occasionally they last hours and hours. Today I have a severe one and it's not even 11. I took an Aleve but it's still bad.
I never used to get headaches so this is out of the blue. I drink a lot of water so I'm not dehydrated. I walk a lot, I'm young, the only other medical condition I have is an overactive bladder which I'm on medication for. When it was storming out I did get a really bad one and my friend said it was from the changing pressure. there were however two changes in my life around the time when the headaches started:
-I became unemployed. I've been job searching. Yes, it is stressful, but at the same time, my old job was stressful too, so I feel that my stress levels aren't out of the ordinary. Also, I do yoga once or twice a week which helps with that.
-I switched to vegetarianism / mostly veganism. But I did all the research and I eat a healthy, balanced diet. Get my protein from beans, tofu, nuts, occasional dairy, greens, grains. I do have an very fast metabolism and feel like I have to eat a LOT to keep up with it. I also can't spend a lot on food, being unemployed. But I still am eating a LOT. My brother got migraines when he was young and scrawny though which is why I'm thinking I could be getting those as I'm pretty lean right now.
Anyway, is this worth seeing a doctor over (I have health insurance)? Are these migraines? Should I be using a different pain reliever? Taking vitamins?
What are you looking forward to?
dk/dc What is your favourite flavour of popsicle ?
(It has to be the same base meal, but you can add or subtract certain things each meal, ie, you want burritos forever, one day you have chicken, the other day you have beef and cheese)
I could live off grilled cheese with a side of fruit.
I am trying to make out his signature and I can't but the date says 7, Feb 1927, Berlin
The signature is written something like this: (again what I can barely make out)
Marx Z (this letter is debateable) Rrifolhunzlan (this is also is probably mostly wrong)
There is a picture, and he is a bald man, with glasses, and a white mostache.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
Yes? No? Why?
will you share something funny with me and try to make me laugh til I cry?
or just tell me something good about your day ?
How expensive is your local cinema?
You should play me: alpacacock
What are your favorite types of games to play?
how/can i do that? or do i gotta just delete it all?
THANKS GUYS ^________^
Do you think adoption should be expensive?

I feel like I should have seen my package by now, though. Someone said something about how letters might get forwarded, but perhaps not packages. Does anyone have any experience with this? I've never moved/had to fill out change of address forms before.
Sticks and stones may break my bones but ______ and _____ excite me?
i'm reading aldous huxley's a brave new world
if i wanted to visit somewhere relaxing, friendly and multicultural in the US, what city would you recommend me?
Whom should i offend today?
can we talk about how excited (or not) we are about this movie?
Besides a dead baby, what could my mother be hiding in her trash can?
I got an Einsteins bagel sandwich to-go today. When I was eating it, I found a hair. I ate the rest anyway.
I had a friend who saw a fly in a restaurant once and never ate there again. I thought that was silly.
I'm going for the cute/classy look and I've been finding in stores is the "ugly/trashy" look.
I've only had luck at Ikea and Urban Outfitters, but there's gotta be more places out there? Right?
I'm not really looking for anything specific, just anything to dress up the place and make it more homey/inviting, ya know?
If you were to make a mix tape of the most annoying songs to irritate the hell out of someone, what songs would you put on it?
ETA: My choices:

Anything by Aaron Carter
Background: My dad is an alcoholic. My mom smokes pot about every two hours. They do not care that I live here and have sex in the kitchen a lot. They see absolutely no problem with any of this. I can't move out and have no where to stay (no family has room and I wouldn't stay with any of them anyway.) so that's not an option. I'm due in 2 months-ish and I'm not too thrilled about raising my daughter around the smell of pot all the time.
Is it weird that my dad would get a spray tan but thinks a manicure is for "non-straight folk"?
I was diagnosed with depression at about age 10, and I've been on Paxil ever since. Also sort of related is hypersomnia, which I believe I might have. I have to sleep for 12+ hours to feel rested, and even then, I don't feel rested for very long. A cause for this is depression, so there you go. Restless leg syndrome is also connected, which I have. It bugs me when people think RLS is just cured by taking a walk or something. It can really affect your sleep quality and it doesn't go away.
Last is my constant UTI problem I've been having for almost 2 years. The doctor thinks I might have a bladder blockage, so I'm having catheter related tests done. Yay.
Have people who picked on you in school FB friended you? Did you accept or ignore?
It's part time, and doesn't make much money. It keeps me in hair dye and shoes.
The management is messed up. Nice folk, but wrongheaded. It is getting kind of crazy with random shit.
I have an opportunity to do some part time editing that would pay significantly more, but I am worried I am not motivated enough to keep it up.
I do not "need" to work. My partner takes care of the earning; I take care of the spending, but it is always nice to have a bit extra.
DK/DC what do you do for a living?
Anybody got any suggestions of other bands I should listen to? Whats a band or artist you like that you don't think enough people have heard of?
It's a book that's now part of a two-or-three book series. The title has a guy's name as part of it, I think. The author is male. It's about some guy who, for one reason or another, ends up harvesting/collecting souls, and a merry-go-round/carousel features, somehow. Anybody have any clue wtf I am talking about?
My dog is terrified of lightning and thunder, and it's storming harder than I've seen in a long time, and he refuses to leave my lap.

Does the crime they were convicted of make a difference?
