Where mermaids dwell

*sigh*

Why does my fiance think that "I just want some alone time" means "Ohmigod you bother me so much, I can't stand you, go away," when all it really means is, "I have a lot of stuff going on in my daily life that I'd just like some quiet time away from the world?"

When was the last time someone made you laugh out loud?
-I tried to wake my friend up early this morning and i said "you HAVE to get up" they looked at me and said   '...damnit the only thing i gotta do is stay black and die' and rolled back over.

What was the last thing you bought?
-i got some hello kitty fake nails from this weird store in the mall, then found more at old navy :D along with some $3 shirts!


Longer question:


SOOOOoooo...I hate my friend's stupidity sometimes.
My friend 'Jessica' just started dating this guy named 'James'. They've known each other pretty much all their lives. They have been dating seriously for about a month.
Jessica had a loved one die of an overdose about 6 months ago, along with an uphill addiction battle for a year and a half with this person before they died. James knows this.
James smokes weed max 3-4 times a week and drinks max 3 times a week. Jessica gets upset and is tired of no one around her being completely sober, like she stays all the time. She asks James to take a break from smoking pot on Wednesday. He agrees. Tonight, Saturday, he leaves to go smoke with his friends. She confronts him about it and he just acts frustrated and waits till she finishes talking, trys to give her a kiss, and leaves to go smoke. She starts crying and I don't know what to tell her. :( What do you guys think?

Have you ever seen an inappropriate Halloween costume? Besides teens dressed like sluts, we've all seen that.

I've seen:
-A person dressed like a cancer patient. They were wearing a white hospital gown, had shaved their head, and were pulling around a fake IV bag.
-A person dressed like a tampon, with a red top.
-Someone dressed like a terrorist holding up a plane ticket.

What's a clever or cute name for a knitting/crochet shop?

If it makes a difference, it's just similar to an Etsy store -- not something huge where a name will really be prominent, but still something to pull a customer in.

(I'm writing this for a friend. So far she has liked Knitwit and Knitrageous but both are already stores/blogs. So, something to that nature.)


Thank you all/anyone for responding!

Are you surprised about Amy Winehouse's death?

I thought this would be one of those deaths people go crazy over because I actually recognised the name. But from her reported lifestyle maybe people just aren't surprised?

Are there other celebrities whose deaths wouldn't surprise you even though they are young?

FELLOW VIRGINIA-NITES

Ever dearest question club,

I just moved to Norfolk, Virginia from Guam back in December for no particular reason other than to come to Caucasia. Why Virginia if I could move any where? Well, my best friend who I hadn't seen in 11 years offered us a place to stay while we "got on our feet" in Virginia Beach and we probably won't live here forever but...
Loving the hipster vibe of Ghent, we moved to an apartment there!

My question is, are there any fellow Norfolk/VA Beach people who would be willing to make friends with us? I've been trying to look for fellow video game/book/any kind of nerds for a while but with no success. I promise we're not rapists/serial killers and I promise to make you delicious Islander/Asian foods!

If you don't live any where close by, how do you recommend making friends with fellow nerds? I assume they don't go out much, since we pretty much don't go out much either.

TL;DR:

Moved to Norfolk, Virginia. Need more geeky friends. Thoughts? Advice?

If you do the grocery shopping for your household, do you do one big shopping trip for the month, or multiple small trips?
I go grocery shopping every two weeks on pay day, but I'm thinking it'd be cheaper and less wasteful if I bought fewer items every week since I'm only cooking for myself.

How do you keep track of your expenses and money? How much do you save?
My dad always told me to put 10% of my paycheck in savings, no matter how big or small it is, and I think it's a good start to getting my savings on track. I'd like that percentage to grow eventually, but I'd got to get everything else paid off first.

We used to have a big family reunion every summer. My family has gotten smaller over the years so this year, we're having a barbecue at my cousin's house. None of my cousins who are my age will be there. I will have to leave early no matter what to go on a date.

Should I just stay home?
Is it rude to only stay for two hours?
If I go and leave early, what can I tell them (I'd rather not mention a date)?

Do you crush your soda/beer cans before you put them to be recycled?  Does it make a difference?  I have about 20+ cans to take (have to take them to a community center, we don't have bins in our complex) and don't know what to do with 'em.

Is it possible to have consensual sex while intoxicated?

Why is it that woman, when drunk are unable to consent or make decisions because they are inebriated and there for if they have sex they were raped, but men who are equally drunk are supposed to be able to maintain the same level of self-control that said woman are excused for not being able to have while drunk?


If a sober or only slightly tipsy woman has sex with a clearly drunk man did she rape him?

WHY IS THIS SO COMPLICATED? I JUST WANT TO GET MY DRUNK SEXY TIMES ON!!!!

*brought to you by the very angry people in sf_drama...and my general confusion on the subject...apparently if I like drunk/tipsy sex I am just a brainwashed cow who has convinced herself she likes being raped.

I have a very loose plan to go to the US this time next year for a few months. I want it to be a kind of working holiday, so doing casual jobs like waiting, fruit picking, bar work. Anything really. I would have to factor in accommodation too. I'd like to be able to move around if I feel like I want to move on.

Is this idea totally unsustainable and needing a lot more thought? Or could I feasibly turn up and get lucky with jobs?
What about using something like BUNAC, where they help with Visas and have a job database etc?

What do you do to cheer yourself up from a major funk?

I am not completely over the flu, and calling into work made me feel even worse. My parents decided to do their monthly "what are you doing with your life/you are a failure" talk today and now I feel crawling into a hole and never coming out.

On a scale of 1 to Westboro, how homophobic do the people where you live tend to be?

A friend of mine just posted an anti-gay-marriage status on FB. I was already feeling depressed today, but now I just feel super shitty and sad about having to live here for another 3+ years. I'm surrounded by people who think that gay marriage being legalized in NY is actually a sign of a Biblical apocalypse, and it's driving me nuts.

If you're served an item you did not order (not a wrong order just an extra), do you say anything?

Someone was served my mimosa today and didn't say anything. I only know because I was like hey where's my mimosa? And the server figured out what went wrong. This was a pay before you sit down establishment so they got a free mimosa. I want a free mimosa.

TQC, my boyfriend's parents' house burned down today. I only spoke to him briefly, he's supposed to call again soon, so I don't really know the extent of the damage, but he did use the phrase "burned down" on the phone, so at any rate it's quite severe. Everyone is okay, including (as far as I know) all the pets.

Can you guys help me think of anything I could possibly send them? My boyfriend has gone home for a little while, but that's 1500 miles away so I can't exactly help clean anything or send over a casserole or anything like that. But I would like to do something if I can think of anything that sounds good. I think if I do send anything I'll see if I can include a tennis ball for one of the dogs in case he lost his, but so far that's about the only idea I have. All evidence suggests that the family is pretty well off, financially, so while I'm sure there must be a lot of stuff that needs to be replaced, I don't think there's much point in me sending "things" of any sort (if that makes sense), but I'd like to do something, some sort of gesture.

So, what mailable things would you send a family whose house just burned down?

How long would a woman have to breastfeed before it freaked you out a little?

My aunt belongs to this parent group, and there is a woman there who just stopped nursing her 5 and a half year old because she's pregnant again. My aunt herself nursed until she got pregnant again, and her son was nearly 5.

I think if the kid can remember it when he grows up, that's a bit too old.
