i went to a bar tonight alone with the specific intent of getting hammered without anyone bothering me (the liquor store is kind of a jog, i don't own a car, and it's chilly and dark and this is a college town). i'm getting the feeling that several of you are smacking your foreheads at my naivete right now.
help me out here. i'm approaching thirty, but i've only started drinking very recently and i have no idea how this works. how do you go to a bar and drink in peace without people fucking harassing you about what book you're reading or what major you're taking? these goddamn kids are driving me out of my mind here. if i wanted a one-night-stand i'd call their mothers.
So, my wife and I recently had an amazing baby boy and everything's been pretty swell. But, my wife's been noticing a rather major decrease in her libido. Potentially due to breastfeeding. She wants to know, is there anything she can take or do (that's safe while breastfeeding) to help?
Any input would be appreciated. :)
Do you think it's a stray? It's pouring out right now and it was dry, so I dunno...it looked kind of thin to me but that might've been just me.
Should I leave a dish of milk out for it? I'm getting hollered at by a friend not to because she says cats are lactose-intolerant. Cats drink milk all the time! Is she right?
If a restraining order was violated by a person coming to your place of employment, though they are forbidden to in terms of the order, what actions are taken next?
It was reported to the police, who came and gathered information from several witnesses (since the person had left by the time the police arrived.) They considered getting video surveillance, but opted not to since there was more than one witness present and willing to testify in court, as this is not the first time it has happened [more like 10-15 times - with one witness being able to verify most of them, the other witness, just to verify the current.]
What actions happen now? Do the police file a complaint with the court directly and then summons the witnesses? We are going down today to get a copy of the police report, but I was wondering if anyone could offer any insight before we go down and begin asking questions there. A little of "what to expect" out of the situation.
Thanks in advance!
So, a girl I go to school with has been acting very strange the last week or so. At the begging of the year she was telling me about her LD boyfriend and I didn't really think too much about it, but then she started going on about he's an FBI agent and he was in Italy for a while for something and then he was supposed to come home and he got waylaid by some investigation over fraternization in the dorm he was staying at. Well, when he was finally supposed to come home from that he didn't show up at the airport and he went missing in Italy. My friend was really torn up at this point b/c apparently she hadn't seen him in about 8 months, but then like, a couple weeks after he went missing he was found in an abandoned car with. like, 4 broken ribs and he had to have surgery b/c two were in danger of puncturing his lungs. And when he went into surgery he apparently had really good chances of survival, but then he died. Which, was really shitty b/c my friend was all upset.
TL;DR: I think my friend made up her boyfriend and then killed him off for attention. But she seems really upset. What should I do? Talk to a counselor, confront her? I'm really worried about her.
Also: I'm going to have to check this when I get back from school b/c I have no internet access there, so if I don't reply that's why. :/
What would you do in this situation?
ETA: Perhaps through the process of posting this (thanks for kicking me in the ass a little, TQCers), I've since made a TON of progress and although I'll have to ask for an extension still it's allowed per the syllabus. I should be able to finish it tonight if I can just stay in my current mindset. Thanks!
DK/DC- what are you looking foward to this weekend (I'm seeing Wild Flag tonight, and I'm so excited because I never got to see Sleater-Kinney live, and Wild Flag has two of the people who were in Sleater-Kinney)
Oh no! The world had run out of diamonds. You and your SO are talking marriage. Completely disregarding cost, what kind of stone is in the ring?

...Date someone like this for four months? People are going to think certain things
...book a flight and then carry a hand grenade in your carry-on luggage? The grenade has the words 'KILL EM ALL' painted on it. You can make up whatever story you want, how you don't know how it got on there, how you left your bag alone, etc. If the story's good enough, you may be exonerated. You may be put on a watch list, but your lifestyle won't raise any eyebrows, right?
....climb into a tiger cage at the zoo for a few minutes? While at the zoo, the little boy next to you throws his dad's fanny pack into the tiger's habitat. The father will pay you 100k to fetch it. The pack landed about 10' from the nearest tiger, who is not asleep. There's 2 tigers total. You just have to climb down, get the pack, and then climb out. If you get help, you obviously don't get paid, since the father will give the money to whoever physically fetches it
...attend the next event that Michelle Bachman is doing, and when she's nearby, hop the security fence and try and hug her? You'll be wearing a t-shirt with her face on it, and a baseball cap that says 'NO. 1 FAN'. If you can get to her long enough, you have to ask her to sign your chest. Security may tackle you. You may be arrested. Odds are, the whole thing will probably be caught on tape and aired on news programs and the Daily Show, and everybody will believe you really are a crazy Bachman booster. But hey, 100k
....gain a pound a year for the rest of your life? For this last question, the 100k is recurring. You'll receive a check every year for life. However, every year you will gain a pound. You cannot lose it no matter how hard you try. Not even lipo will get it out. This is on top of any normal weight you may gain per year. So, at the end of 10 years, you'll have earned $1,000,000, but you'll be at least 10lbs heavier, at the end of 20, $2,000,000 and at least 20lbs heavier, etc.
When you put your hands together, what thumb is on top?

What kind of sushi should I get with my udon soup for dinner today? Alternatively, what would you order from this menu?
dk/dc/I have never eaten food and have no preference: Will you look for houses for sale in your area and show me the most expensive/impressive/extravagant one you can find?
Hmmm. What happens now?
This all takes place before you have a chance to confront him or exact revenge
And more importantly, for those of you who eat low carb, what do you order at the bar? I know I shouldn't be drinking any calories while dieting, but I only drink 1-2 nights a week. I'm going to try to limit myself to two drinks per night. I prefer cocktails over beer. I usually drink Beam and diet coke.
Any help / advice is greatly appreciated :)
The soonest appt I can get for one (because apparently you need an appointment) is Monday afternoon.

Parents: would you buy a camera for your small child?
I found this really cute digital camera for little kids today and I bought it for my cousin's child. She will turn 4 right after Christmas. I had a 110 camera when I was that age (I think Playskool made it - I need to google or go to eBay) and loved it.
( Collapse )
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks! :)
I just won some really beautiful dark brown leather boots on Ebay that I'm pretty jazzed about :)
Because today my school had a clap-out for the teachers who have had perfect attendance this year and it freaking rocked! (A clap-out is when the honorees walk down each hall and the students and staff clap for them- it's usually students. This morning we did science fair winners)
is it safe to use a slightly rusty potato peeler? i'm assuming so but dang if you just never know for sure.
1) did you take the TEAS V for nursing school? i'm taking it tomorrow. i don't need it for all of my applications, and this will be my second bachelors, so i'm not too stressed about it, but i have no idea what the scoring is and i don't know if you're supposed to answer all the questions or not. i'm a naturally good test taker but i just want to know if it helps or hurts to try to answer all the questions.
if you don't care:
2) what do you think about Kim Zolciak and Kroy on Real Housewives of Atlanta? i love them together which kind of scares and perplexes me because all this time i kind of thought Kim might actually be a man. "DAMN DAT ASS."
DK/DC? What is your favorite song and why? What is your most hated song and why?

All the Big Bang Theory guys (especially Sheldon)
for all people, same question but irl?
Do you own a raincoat and wellies?
Does being outside when it is raining bother you?
Things to consider:
My husband can take care of our kid
I work in a group with other students and don't want to get them sick
It's hard to balance the right thing to do with missing such a big class. FWIW, I'm not doing very well in class and it's not something I can make up at home.
Should I stay home tomorrow?
