Where do you shop online most?

Do you get frustrated with clothing never fitting properly and just having a lackluster wardrobe?

Would you like to release some of your pent-up frustration from first-world problems?

Anyone else having trouble logging into Facebook this morning? I've entered both my username and password correctly, but I've tried three different browsers (Chrome, FF and IE) and keep getting this error message.Collapse )

Alternatively, how's your day going so far? Want to brag or complain or share anything?

I took Monday off as a vacation day, since I'm getting a little overstressed with work. I had planned to meet a friend for lunch that day. Should I move that to another day, or keep it? If I move it, I can spend my day off getting a pedicure, running some errands and wandering around the library without worrying about what time it is. If I keep that lunch date, I'll have to keep better track of time so I don't run late.

When was the last time you took a day off just for the hell of it?

How is your week going?

There have been at least a handful of studies which have found that marriage is more successful when the woman is smarter and hotter than her husband.

The last study linked even quantified the intelligence bit: 27% smarter at minimum.

What do you think about that?

If you're in a relationship, who's smarter/hotter, you or them?
Please feel free to include a description of what kind of relationship it is.

If you're a lonely internet foreveralone, are you at least smarter than your cat?
I know you're not hotter.

If you're a lonely internet foreveralone without a cat, I'm so sorry :(

Every couple of weeks, my email starts sending out viruses to my entire contact list. I clear my cookies, run anti-malware and anti-virus scans (I usually do these daily, as well), and change my password, but it's still happening. How do I get these things off my computer for good if the scans aren't picking anything up?

Also, does anyone have any lens recommendations or Nikon tutorial/learning sites? I used to work with an old manual back in the day, but a DSLR is so crazy big and complex.

Also, any tips for planning a trip to Europe on a budget? I'm not going to be backpacking around too much, I'll mostly be staying with family in Austria, but I also plan to spend a week in Paris before I head to Austria, and maybe finish my trip off with a visit to Italy for a week or 10 days. I've just started planning, so no specifics yet :)

So far I'm planning to stay in hostels and picnic a lot. Any other ideas for keeping my expenses in check?

I quit my job yesterday via text (at my manager's request; she prefers texts) at around 3 pm. It's now the next day at 1 pm and I still haven't heard anything back. What does this mean? Did I piss them off badly, or does she think I don't deserve a reply? I was kind of expecting...any kind of reply, to be honest. Is that unprofessional?

While we're still sort-of on the subject of online dating profiles, for those of you who have them and utilize them:

How do you handle that dreaded first message? What are some of your tried-and-true methods of breaking the ice when you're contacting someone for the first time? Do you make a comment on some portion of their profile that you can relate to? Do you dazzle them with your wit? Charm them by complimenting their pictures? Seriously, how does anyone get over that enormous hump of making first-contact?

Stupid post time.

This morning, I turned the light on in the bedroom and the bulb popped. I thought my boyfriend would have changed it before he left for work, but of course not! So when I get in from work I go to flick the light on and now none of the lights in the house are working. Google is failing me and I'm scared of the dark and the bf won't be home from work till late.

Why is this happening? And how do I fix it?

1. What was your highschool experience like? Was it positive/negative? Why?
2. Were you part of a clique? If so, which one? How did this effect your highschool experience?
3. Would you say your experience was better or worse than your friends or others you've spoken to over the years? Why?

Me
1. My own experience was very positive. The majority of my highschool seemed to be a pretty inclusive bunch who mixed and mingled, and all generally got along. A lot of people who went to the same highschool have expressed that they felt comfortable going from table to table in the cafeteria, mixing and mingling, and felt generally welcome wherever they went.
2. Probably the drama club. It's a little hard to say because I felt like every clique mixed and mingled so it was hard to put people in one group or another, myself included.
3. A lot of my friends who DIDN'T go to my highschool explain their experience was alot more like MEAN GIRLS, where different cliques were very defined, and often isolated (or even hostile) towards one another, so my own experience seemed to have been a lot more positive. I'm curious what everyone else's was like!


(The subject title is based off Alexandra Robbins' book of the same title, on highschool cliques and why "outsiders" seem to thrive after highschool...an awesome read).

My question: Whose opinion should I trust? I know my friends and they wouldn't tell me to go to the school if it was not good. But I'm scared of dumping a bunch of money into an institution that won't prepare me properly.

Is there something your parents always nag you about?

My dad no longer speaks to me unless it is to tell me I am the fattest and ugliest of all his children (for the record, I do have a bmi of 23, which might be unsightly on an asian body, since the stereotype is for all of them to be 20 lbs underweight; and a waist to hip ratio of .68). If I happen to look a bit slimmer that day, he'll nag about my white boyfriend, and how white guys would never date an asian girl seriously and that they're only there for sex and that I'm stupid for not going for an Asian guy.

I bought a dress today. It's size is 1X, and although I think a 0X would be the best fit, it still fits and looks great. However, the bust area is much too big. It was a cheap dress so I think it'd be worth it to drop a little bit of money into having it altered, if it's not very expensive.

Have any of you ever used a tailor's service for alterations? How much would I reasonably expect to spend on this?
