Tomorrow is the first day of Ramadan!! Our fasting month. Everyone is sooooo excited and celebrating and stuff. There is a funny twitter trend trending now #YouKnowItsRamadanWhen and I saw many westerners asking question and stuff so I thought of TQC! Is there anything you like to ask me about Ramadan? :)

DC/DK: Let's say there is this girl who dresses modestly and acts modestly but almost every guy who talks to her just wants to fuck her and they try soo hard to have sex with her but nothing more. Just sex and no relationship at all. What does this say about her? Does that mean she is very attractive or the opposite? Or does it mean she has an awful personality?

I have a coworker who is very disgruntled about not being promoted. The thing is, I have worked with her before and she just isn't up to handling the responsibilities of the position (and some of our supervisors have implied the same) - at least not in the near future. She is saying she's going to quit if she doesn't get promoted.

I really like her and she is very sweet, and I would hate to see her go. but I don't know if there's anything I can say in this situation. I feel like my only option is to let her vent and then watch her leave when she doesn't get promoted.

What would you do/say in this situation?

So I've just found out I'm expecting a boy in December...

Robert Tadeo (for reference, Tadeo is my father's name also). Robbie for short.

On the off chance that the gender scan was wrong and this baby is a girl, the name will probably be Sofia Katrin (Katrin is my mother's name).

We already have a son called Caleb Yarraman.

Am I giving my next kid a stupid name? On a scale on one to one billion, how screwed is he? :P

(Srs and non-srs answers welcome)

I just got asked for an interview on Monday. Hurrah!

But some of those interview questions always throw me for a loop; what is the weirdest question you've been asked?

The easiest one for you to answer?

One that is asked at about every interview?

What's the term for when people dehumanized someone because they don't want to believe "normal" people could commit horrible crimes? Like "No human could have done x, he was a monster."

Is there something you refuse to share with TQC? Your age? Your city of residence? Your gender? Your occupation? Your picture? etc etc.

Why is this particular thing private for you?

Do you try and maintain being somewhat anonymous on LJ?

Moonrise Kingdom

* i've already seen this once, BUT it's at the $2 theater and i liked it so much i'd see it again.

So yesterday I drove from CT to NJ, a 2.5 hour drive, and noticed that any time I tried to go up hill on the interstate, I couldn't get my car to accelerate. At one point I was pressing the gas and the sepodometer was going down.

Needless to say the car is now at the mechanic--my father has an excellent mechanic so it is with him.

My question to you is, what d'yah think is wrong with my car?

Srs/non srs welcome.

Dk/dc: how much does it cost you to get a haircut?

I just got charged 75 dollars of brokerage fee to receive a package from UPS that was a GIFT and probably not even worth that. (haven't gotten it yet, have to pick it up)

Why is UPS such a rip off?

What's the best company for international deliveries?

Do you have trouble getting yourself to work out? How do you kick your butt into doing it?

I don't mind working out (honestly, I just get on the bike and pedal while I read- win!) and I love how I feel afterward, buuut I put off going and don't really know why. What can I do to get myself going regularly?

For those who use Google Chrome, what are some good extensions to add to it? I already have the screen capture one (works like screengrab for FF).

For everyone else, what awesome gadget/technological thing have you just discovered? (Inspired by me just realizing today that Chrome has extensions)

What's the stupidest thing you've done this week?

Brought to you by my stupidity trying to pay the water bill. I transferred $660 instead of $60 and can't even apply for a refund until Monday :(

I have two cats and two litter boxes (one in dining room and one in bedroom). They use the bedroom one a lot more often. Should I get rid of the box in the dining room or keep it just in case?

TQC, I wouldn't normally do this, but I don't have anyone else to talk to about this.

I'm worried I might be depressed. Or getting there. I'm also worried that I might be making things up. I'm tired all the time. I sleep so much, but I never feel any better. I don't like doing things, I don't really feel like hanging out with my friends or family. I'm restless. I can't ever relax or get comfortable. But it's not always like this, sometimes I really enjoy things and I laugh a lot. But mostly, I sit on my bed and watch movies I don't care about and don't really do anything. I have a lot of things I need to get done and I haven't done any of them because... I don't know. I just haven't. I know if I can hold onto the times I'm happy, I'll be fine, but those only really happen around people. As soon as I'm alone again, I'm just... Tired. I'm just so tired. 

TQC, I don't know what to do. I really don't want to worry anyone and I think I'm just overreacting. I know I'm opening myself up to potentially hurtful things, but I'm just at a loss.

What would you do?

my birthday's on a weekday this year, so instead of throwing some kind of party, i'd rather have dinner with a bunch of my friends. thing is, i'm not really feeling any of the places we usually go to. can anyone recommend good places to eat in the dmv* area?

* dmv = dc/maryland/virginia. i'm not spending my birthday renewing my license... yet.
