Do you talk in your sleep? What do you say? Do you remember?
My husband has recently discovered I do. I didn't know this and do not remember. I spoke with him last night about mac and cheese filled roads, and a few weeks before that, asked him "do you know why I love you?" and he said "why" and I said "Because you're in the ankle zone." and then proceeded to tell him to be careful because hamas was right around the corner and he needed to get out of Israel.
Apparently, I speak as if I am awake, and he gets confused if I am really awake and just joking with him or asleep. Turns out, I am always asleep.
What is your real life superpower?
I have a disturbing ability to remember details. Like things that no person's brain should ever need to remember.
whats your fave INDIE song of all time? hooked up to indie songs these days, really chilled out ;)
I'm about to start substitute teaching and I want to start a blog where I can write about my experiences (I already know not to name names or give away personal details of my students/their teachers), but I'm totally blanking on the name! Do you have any suggestions?
And because I know that less than 1% of the members here will give a crap about that question, what are your plans for today? Are you looking forward to them?
Let's say your s/o buys you a gift card for your birthday to a spa and the description says "spa manicure" and expires 12/2012. S/o tells you it's for a massage and a manicure and is very evasive about details.
It's now December and you call the spa and ask what exactly this spa manicure thing means and they tell you it's for a manicure with a wax treatment on your hands. You ask them when the card was purchased, since it expires in December of 2012, and they tell you it would have to have been last December, as all gift cards are good for one year.
You and your s/o were not together in December of last year, and it's suddenly clear that this thing has been re-gifted to you. What do you say, if anything?
ETA: we're both girls and she received this gift from someone else and regifted it to me.
Have you ever encountered someone with a "aggressive accent". Maybe when they spoke they sounded angry, aggressive or negative but it's only how they spoke not actually how there were or felt? Maybe you initially thought they were mean or judging you but were actually cool?
When I speak people always seem to think I'm tearing them down or being mean and actually listening to myself I sound like a spoiled princess (I'm a dude) and I don't know if it's just me, my environment or why I have this "accent". Ever accused of something similar?
Do you think having a dishwasher is an absolute necessity? What if there's only 2 people in the household and they eat out a lot?
Which would you rather give up - your dishwasher or your microwave?
dk/dc: Have you ever had hemorrhoids? If so, how did you treat them?
I have an interview today. I am leaving my current job for two reasons:
1. The hours I work are WAY more than advertised and while I sort of don't mind doing the overtime (unpaid) because I like the job, I'm working 60-75 hours a week for a job that was billed as 44-50 a week. And it's an hour drive away each way.
2. I'm brand new to my position (store manager) and in 4 months I've turned my store around from being chronically the worst performing in the district to being solidly middle-of-the-pack or better, all while short staffed and with little formal training, and I don't see the staffing, my hours, or my training getting any better in the near future (not to mention I don't like how in spite of the progress I made, I get dumped on for the little stuff).
THIS is how I plan to communicate those objections in the interview:
1. "I currently work 60-75 hours a week which is more than the job advertised for, and because I'm salaried there's no extra compensation. I am perfectly fine with giving a little bit extra to help the company, but I'm recently married and would like to start a family soon. Your company seems to put a lot of emphasis on work-life balance and that is something I would greatly value"
2. "During my brief time as manager at my current location I've made major improvements in my store in several key areas (and I can provide to offer some details on what those improvements are). Along the way I've gained invaluable experience through operating a store day-to-day However, because the staff in this expanding company is a bit small, they don't have the time available to implement their formal training program for me. What I'd like to do is bring the management experience that I do have to your company so that I can capitalize on the fact that your position is a management trainee position. I think that given my skill set (which we'll talk about), combined with your training, I'll be able to be a fan-fucking-tastic member of your team and the best god-man damnager this company's ever had.
Do these answers sound reasonable?
What was the last beverage you drank?
Would your rather be kidnapped and held hostage alone for three months, or held hostage as part of a group of say, 6-8 people, for six months? Why?
If you current vehicle suddenly broke down completely and you needed a new one...and while car shopping you found a former funeral hearse, which was in great condition and had great mileage, and was significantly cheaper than the next best/comparable car, would you get it?
I was going to go get my Christmas tree today, but then I remembered that I have a carpet cleaning scheduled for next Tuesday. The spot where the tree will be doesn't need cleaning, but having it there might make things a little bit awkward. However, if I wait much longer I might go into labor and not get a chance to get a tree this year at all.
TQC, should I go ahead and still get the tree tonight or wait until next week?
sometimes i just cry for no reason at all in public. i don't really like getting strangers' attentions simply because i feel they have their own problems to deal with. but i do appreciate it. i just feel uncomfortable.
if you do cry unexpectedly in public, how do you stop?
you guys I need your help, I need a team name for my cycling group.

If you were a country artist, would you feel annoyed that Taylor Swift was winning a bunch of Country Music awards when her music can hardly be classified as Country anymore?
I am bored at work, will you tell me a true story about something that has happened in your life that is either funny, shocking, or amazing?
The suspension on my fiance's car broke and it's going to cost $700 dollars to repair. His car is a '99 Buick Le Sabre. He bought it from my uncle a year ago and it has been well-maintained.
His boss will loan him money interest free to get a 2004 Accura in good shape from the mechanic he goes to.
Do we put $700 dollars into the '99 or buy a new one? I'm torn because the '99 won't last forever and we might not have the chance to buy a car without interest again. I'm scared something els could break on it and it'd be $700 down the tube. On the other hand, a new car is a massive expense for us. It'll take a while to pay off (it's like 8k for the Accura).
***The Accura is priced at exactly the blue book value of $7,995 and it has 130,000 miles on it if that helps.
Any photo editing/customizing website recommendations?
I have a few Vera Bradley bags (a tote, wristlet, and large duffle in one color). I was just given a generous birthday gift and I want to buy a Vera Bradley traveling bag & another tote. Should I get the bag & tote in a different pattern or stick with the same pattern I have now? Yes, I am a bit obsessed.

Why am I so tired all the time???
What's a good gender-neutral word for "seamstress"? Google says "sewist", which sounds appallingly contrived, and "sewer", which is a homograph for the river of shit under the street. Can you think of anything better?
If you had to listen to one current top 40 artist exclusively for a week, who would it be?
Any whisky enthusiasts here? What is your favourite brand? Which one has the best price/quality in your opinion?
So this is going to be the worst description ever but hopefully somebody will know what I'm talking about.
I heard a song on the hip hop/r&b radio station the other day and don't remember any of the words, just the beat. It was intense and techno like. It lasted for a while and then went into the r&b type song (which I remember nothing about) and then back to that techno beat. The beat was way hotter than the song, but I can't figure out what song it is. Help?
