Have you ever had a stress injury, particularly in your legs? What did you do for it?
My job requires me to be on my feet for six to eight hours a day, and last night my right leg, my shin area, was throbbing so badly that I couldn't sleep, so I tried to take some ibuprofen, which didn't help. Then I realized that my right foot was swollen, so I said, "Okay, let's just rest it through the night and see what happens," and it's no better this morning, so I called out of work and am planning on going to my urgent care place today in between resting it. Should I also be icing the shin to see if that helps?
For the first time in my life, I just went from a really relaxed work setting to a more formal office setting, which is a situation I have absolutely zero experience with. I'm finding the most difficult part of transitioning is that I don't seem to have any natural sense of what I think people call "office politics." I can't explain it very well except to say that I feel like everyone else is playing a game and I'm the only one in the room who doesn't know what the rules are.
Does anyone understand what I'm trying to say? Is anyone able to help me out here? Some general guidelines. Office Politics For Dummies or something?
On a scale of 1-10 how annoyed would you be if your roommate says they'd help you find a new place to live, drive you from place to place (because you don't have a car nor a license), etc. Only to bail on you the first day after looking at one place, then the second day say oh well come back and ask me about going out at 12:30 (it was 11 when you asked, you've been up waiting since 8).
I'm hitting about a 5/6 because while yes she is doing me a favor she's the one that scheduled the power/water going to go off in a week from Friday.

You and your friend are out hiking, when you come across something you don't see everyday. Thousands and thousands of space aliens exiting multiple landed spacecraft. They're all armed with advanced looking guns. The unusual thing (ok, REALLY unusual thing) is that they look like they're made out of chocolate. Think gourmet Easter bunnies. The leader of the aliens is speaking to them all in their language. You know because he's wearing a crown. His back is to you and he's about 5' away. Your friend whispers to you "The king looks delicious. I'm going to go over there and take a chomp out of his head". What do you say?
hi everyone. i posted a while ago asking for any advice about moving in with your partner. i got some really good advice regarding to things such as money, grocery shopping, and so on, so thanks everyone! we're moving in together in july. :) i have some more questions if that's okay. and after viewing ourbedrooms i was wondering if any of you have pictures of the room/apartment/house you share with your partner for some decor and storage inspiration? i would also like to hear any of your moving-in-together-for-the-first-time with your partner stories!
1. What, if any, bands/artists that are still making music do you consider able to "do no wrong"? Meaning, if they came out with songs/albums that most everyone despised, you would still buy/download the music and love it no matter what.
2. What is the best creative project/extra-credit assignment you came across in school? Are there any you wish you'd've been assigned, or would assign to students if you were a teacher?
3. Yesterday, I joined OKCupid. I am open to new friends/dates/sex, but not with anyone I would dislike. Any related advice/warnings/stories you'd like to share?
question about phones. sorry if this gets asked too much!
my phone broke tonight so I'm in need of a new phone. I want a smartphone. I'm looking at getting a plan as they work out so much cheaper than prepaid. I know this gets asked a lot but:
iPhone or android?
iPhone 4 with lots of credit and internet access vs iPhone 4S with much less credit and internet usage for a similar price? (iPhone4 is $500 + 1GB, iPhone 4S is $200 + 200mb) - I'm not a big phone user, but I'd use the internet a lot, and I like the security of extra credit ICE.
both these iPhone options vs a lower end android (Galaxy S II)?
so this isn't all about me... what phone do you have?
I just posted part of this question at hip_domestics, so apologies if you're seeing it both places.
Do potential home buyers really care if the home's washer and dryer are a matched set? My husband thinks this is a big deal and they must match. Last time I bought a dryer, he insisted I get a new washer too, and I bought the set based on the washer I really wanted at the time. The dryer never worked well and although the washer was high efficiency, I think I used up 2x as much electricity running the dryer for way longer than I should have had to run it.
I need to replace a broken washer fast, and we will probably sell the house within five years. When I'm looking at new houses, I don't really care if the laundry appliances match as long as they work. Am I in the minority?
Been getting bug bites every night for about a week. I've never reacted to a bite or any sort before, but these are red, angry, owwy & require regular calamine lotion. They don't ooze, but some have blistered/scabs. Mainly on my feet & legs but now on my forearms. Boyf who has been visiting the past 2 weeks has suffered maybe one bite. Flatmate has suffered no bites. We have checked my bed for bed bugs 3 times & found no evidence (thank God). I've changed my sheets twice & still had 2 new bites last week.I have seen a small, jumpy black spider (half the size of a paperclip) in my room a few times, even after I've put him outside. Is he the culprit? WHAT IS EATING ME?! And what can I do about it?
