what do you think of preserving animals in jars?
my friend has a few animals in jars persevered in rubbing alcohol, some birds and a hamster and yesterday he had a kitten that didnt make it and he put her in a jar for preservation. i know its creeps some people out tho i would never perserve my cat ever, i think its pretty neat. he says he does it because he thinks an animal doesnt lose its value as soon as it dies.

I want cremation. Burying people in a box has always freaked me out.
I feel a 26in wouldn't be effective very long, because it would only be open 2 inches, a 24in would be open 4.... I think a 24in would give me more room to squeeze for a longer time but maybe there is something about corsets I don't know.
You're pottering about the house, doing bollock all, as is your wont, and your brother rings you up. He says, "You can say no if you want, really, that would be fine, I wouldn't blame you at all, but blah blah complicated explanation and blah blah rambling and blah blah so do you think you'd be able to lend a room?" Further probing reveals that he would like you to offer your spare room to a foreign worker, who's working for your brother, probably Brazilian though that isn't actually relevant, he can't put down a deposit on anywhere until he gets paid, so he just needs a room for three weeks, and please, sis?
Would you say yes or no to this, and why?
I've had ridiculously dark circles around my eyes lately that my concealers won't even conceal anymore :( I need recommendations. Arsehole customers at work keep telling me I look tired all the bloody time and I suspect it's mainly because of that.
I've tried Napoleon Perdis (the one with the 3 different shades), Dermablend (both the smooth something one and the quick fix stick one), a Smashbox one (I think it was a high defintion one? Idk.) and Benefit's Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer. They've all been good to me in the past but I need something with more coverage. I've trying adding layers of the ones I already have in an attempt to build the coverage but it ends up looking too cakey and nasty.
I was thinking of purchasing those colour correcting conealers (like how green fixes redness, yellow fixes something I don't rememeber...I think there's a purple one, too). Has anyone had any success with those? I remember buying a green one back in highschool and I failed miserably at applying it.

The first person paid me under the table because I worked there maybe two or three times a month when she had a client that needed my specializations. She was extremely unprofessional and was notorious for refusing to call people when she decided she wanted a new face and went through massage therapists frequently. I worked there the longest than any other therapist she had before she went through a rotation again. I'm wondering if I should put that experience on my resume because I know that if she gets called she won't answer or return calls, or probably even acknowledge that she knows me because that is the kind of person that she is (I have seen her deny knowing therapists who have worked in her spa before). The position was from three years ago, so I wonder if the likelihood is even there that she WILL be called.
The second spa did not end in a happy parting of ways. The owner and I frequently did not get along because she would conveniently change her mind if I was an employee of hers or a independent contractor when it suited her whims and needs. I had my own station set up in her spa though. An incident occurred with an man sexually harassing me and wanting me to go to his house to give him a "massage". He didn't start his advances until he had come to me a handful of times, so he was a regular at that point. I reported this incident to her and told her that I was not going to give him another massage because he had started to get forward/aggressive. Her response was to tell me to get my stuff out of her spa because how dare I have a problem with a client and his sexual advances; then she contradicted herself that I shouldn't have given a massage to a pervert anyway and it was my fault for leading him on, despite the fact that he was perfectly fine the first couple of times he came to the massage. Many things happened, including her telling this man what I had said even before I had a chance to talk to her face to face (and he of course denied everything) and then taking about half the money out of my last paycheck because she was bitter. I ended up reporting her unethical behavior to the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork and she got in a lot of trouble. So I know that if she is called she will only say terrible things because after I left her reputation was shot. I last worked there over two years ago.
In both places though, I had a lot of experience and many loyal customers. So I'm wondering if I should still put them on my resume. What do you think?
tl;dr Two prior jobs with good professional experience ended badly because the bosses her bitter jerks. Should I still put them on my resume?
Background: The child being baptized is my coworkers first daughter; coworker and I are not particularly close BUT I want to go anyways because a) he is a really great guy and I am honoured he asked me, and b) I just moved to this city three months ago, still know barely anyone, and would like to accept as many social invitations as I can. But the last baptism I've been to, I was 12 years old; and the last time I was in a church I was maybe 14. I have NO IDEA what the related protocol is....
What would you wear to:

Do you wear shoes without socks? If so, how do you avoid stank feet? I have to wear closed toe shoes at work so I've been wearing flats sans socks all summer and I feel like I have to throw all of my shoes away. It's nasty. :/
I just recently bought a pair of silver earrings and they are tarnished. I actually did google "how to" but this post is mostly for your personal suggestions and a reassurance that my ears won't develop a nasty rash and being the germaphobe that I am, it will help me not have a panic attack about irrational thoughts of bacteria slowly eating off my ears.
everyone else: what do you have planned for the weekend?
Do you confront them about it?
what can i say that won't make it sound like i'm just blowing him off and don't want to see him? 'cause i really, really do but i know he's going to want to go out because he hasn't had many weekends free the whole summer.
or should i just suck it up and go out with him? i don't know if it'd be just us or us and his friends. normally i'm really social, just not this weekend(of course).
If not, what is the story behind your username?
(Apologies to TCQ veterans who have probably answered this question a thousand times, I haven't seen it recently.)
Keep in mind that if you named is something cutesy like "Fluffy" or "Boots" the kitten would spontaneously combust and its all your fault.
(I am completely capable of naming my own kitten, and I am not seeking LJ's approval on names. I am merely curious and looking for other names I may not have thought of)

Do you think there should be a law/rule/common courtesy for a retailer to inform you of the statistical return rate/percent of defective devices reported (per model/manufacturer)?? wtf?
They always drink, and I got a few beers for the occasion.
My Q is, would it be a horrible idea to take some painkillers now, before attending the party? The cramps are so horrible that I don't even want to get up from the couch. The painkillers contain paracetamol and codeine.
Staying at home isn't an option.
Assuming you have three people of the exact same experience, they all wear the same clothes but one speaks AAVE... Is it wrong to disqualify for hire the one that speaks in a less standard way assuming there are no other differentiating factors?
I won't be hiring him because there were just better candidates in general, but given the scenario I posted, I probably still wouldn't unless he could prove he could speak professionally.
Also, who is your favorite Sesame Street character? I'm loving Fat Blue currently :)

I'm planning on taking my car in tomorrow but...the brakes stopped squeaking today. Should I take it in anyway?
Since I won't be able to go anywhere tomorrow if I do that... should I go drive 30 minutes to get Red Mango since I have nothing to do tonight? :/
What are youuuu up to?
I currently work at a convenience store which requires all customers to come in and pre-pay for their gas if they aren't using the card reader at the pump. The rule is company wide apparently, and yet I keep getting customers who come in and bitch about it then stating that other cashier and other places do this for them. The only exception to that rule are drivers with fleet cards since they have key in certain information after getting their fuel, but they still have to come in and let us know since we have to manually turn on our diesel pump at the register. I was curious if pre-paying for fuel was universal or if it was just our company.
My uncle claims that 40% of people who voted for Obama were illiterate (obvious bullshit).
If that were true, what percentage of Americans would be illiterate?
This will be hilarious. I need help because math is my worst subject...

What are some good low carb snacks and meals?
I already eat a lot of veggies and things like cottage cheese and very little bread...my main downfall is going to be my orange juice and sushi addiction.

Sometimes this show really scares the crap out of me.
I start back to school in a week or so.
Would it be too forward of me to remind him about that and see if we can work something out before I go back?
[And maybe see if I can make it a date, any suggestions for that as well would be much appreciated.]
