I was like ok.
So today I noticed that there something hard is poking from my gums. It seems to be (part of) one wisdom tooth.
Did anybody else here have it come out naturally and non-crooked?
I will go to my dentist soon to have it checked out but it looks kinda ewww. And all I heard were horror stories or the wisdom teeth just not coming out.
What I want is to be able to listen to audiobooks at the gym. I hate going to the gym and anything that will take my mind off the suck that is exercising will ensure my success. I love to read, but that isn't really feasible when running on the track, lifting weights, or any other gym related activity. So, I thought listening to an audiobook would be a good way to take my mind somewhere else.
What I don't know is how to go about making this happen.
I have an Iphone that I don't use as a phone. It is basically an Ipod touch now, it works when there is Wifi, which I will have at whatever workout location I go to.
I also have a Kindle, one of the old ones that has a keyboard.
Can I use one of those to listen to books? Or do I need something different?
I can get all kinds of audiobooks from my library, so that would be my source. Or are there other free sources? And what format do I download and how do I get that book on to whatever I plan to use to listen?
As you can see you are going to have to explain this to me like I am 4. Although, some 4 year olds are probably quicker to catch on when it comes to technology.
Thanks in advance for the help!
I really like it. It was a mature choice to make THOND anyway, so they might as well go all out.
I also am a regular at another music festival that seems pretty famous among singer-songwriter fans. It's called the Kerrville Folk Festival. Have you ever gone to it or heard of it? If you've heard of it, what have you heard?
What big festivals or music-related events go on in your area? Have you been to them?
What festivals have you been to? What was it like? Are you a regular at any festival?
Will you throw me your recipes for cookies, cupcakes, brownies, and bars? I don't have too much highly specialized equipment but I do like a challenge and I'd like something that will stand out both in taste and presentation.
Basically, it's become obvious that he lost interest because she didn't put out. However, she's convinced that he's been pulling away because he's going through an uncertainty phase.
Last night, guess who contacts me on OkCupid? Yup.
This has confirmed that he's lost interest in my friend and that he's still shopping around for other women. Should I tell my friend that he sent me a message or should I not say anything and just tell her that she should just move on?
Edit: I don't know if this was unclear, but this guy does NOT know that my friend and I are friends.
You're offered a job for life. It's a normal job that maybe isn't that glamorous, but as long as you do this job, your yearly salary is $100,000. Guarranteed. The only catch is that you can't quit, and you can't retire until you're of retirement age. Which of these jobs would you take for 100k a year, guarranteed employment for life, with the knowledge you can't look for another job ever? Anything you don't check it's because you simply wouldn't want to do that job for life, no matter what the pay was. Things to consider: if you think you'll find a better paying job otherwise, what people may think of you still doing this job when you're in your 40s, self respect, what people may think of you doing this job, period
This Sunday I will be visiting my friend, D, who attends a university about 3 hours away. D's friend M who I've met a few times is also visiting. M lives about half an hour from me, which is slightly out of the way I'd be taking to get to the university.
M was planning on taking a train both ways, but D asked if I could give her a ride home instead of her taking the train (M already bought the ticket there). M would be willing to give me gas money.
I said it wouldn't be a problem but I'd feel weird accepting gas money considering I was planning on going before I knew she'd be coming. That said, I'm saving M roughly $60 by giving her a ride home. Would it be fair to just ask that M pays for lunch and coffee on the way back? I don't want to accept actual money but some sort of compensation would be nice. For lunch I'd just want like Taco Bell or pizza.
If you were in my situation, what would you do? If you were M, would you think that was fair?

This is prompted by a recent incident in our own kitchen. The paper towel holder was too close to the burner and my husband walked into the kitchen and the whole roll was on fire. He was able to put the roll immediately in the sink and put it out, but if he hadn't walked in, I don't even want to think about it. :/
I ordered an extinguisher for our kitchen today. We live in a building and on every floor there are four placed in all of the hallways. But I figured to have one close at hand would be even better.
Have you ever had a fire in your home? What did you do?
Are you a firefighter?
How long will it last?
How can I help it go away faster?
And have any of you had a reaction like this?
So, i called the tattoo artist and asked if there was anything unsual that he might have used on my tattoo that would cause the reaction i'm having. He said 2 things. 1. I could be allergic to the A and D ointement or 2. the spray he used on my skin had lidocaine in it! WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!?!? I'M SEVERELY ALLREGIC TO PRODUCTS WITH ANYTHING CAINE IN IT!
So thank you so much everyone for your help <3
And I would have cvalled him first, but he is only open from 7 pm til 2 am :)
Pics may be very large :(

The ONLY thing that is kinda not so cool at the moment is that for a lot of reasons that I won't bother to get into here (but could in the commments if it really makes a difference) nobody has very much time to train me properly. Almost all of my coworkers have recognized that I'm not being trained and so *in general* nobody's giving me too tough a time about all the little mistakes I'm making and how I'm a bit slow to connect some dots, although I think people are a bit annoyed. I'm one of three new people in a small office, and I get the feeling that of the three I'm progressing the slowest.
For the purposes of this question, I'm not too interested in how I can influence the people at work to give train me. It's very obvious that everyone is too busy to train me with the kind of depth that I need. So while it's unfortunate and I'm not exactly thrilled about it, I definitely am not going to draw attention to myself and the fact that I'm struggling, especially when people have already acknowledged the issue. I've resigned myself to the fact that this is the one and only thing about the job that isn't perfect and I'm going to put up with that in exchange for everything else about it that is amazing.
My question is: Has anyone been in this situation before? Did you have any way of handling it that worked really well?
are you the kind of person who can go to movies/out to dinner alone?
who is the worst teacher you've ever had and what were they like?
what do you usually smell like?
