Re: uninvited house guests

KILL THEM
I smashed a lot of bugs on my ceiling yesterday. I used to try and let spiders live in hopes they'd take care of the other bugs, but then one crawled in my ear while I was sleeping so now it's war.

Re: What career should you have?

it tells me to be a psychologist, or educator. But both of those would require more school, which I don't want to pursue at the moment.

Re: what do you dislike about children?

They're so LOUD! And they just take a lot of attention, and I don't really know how to talk to them.
My friend recently referred to her daughter (almost 2) as a "chaos monster" and ...yeah, that's pretty much what I don't like about kids: they're chaos. I like them only in small doses.

Re: what are you reading?

I recently read Obelisk Gate (and had read The Fifth Season several months before that). Seconding lilly's comment: SO GOOD. Personally I liked it much better than the 100K kingdoms, too. Currently re-reading Outlander, because it's fun and lighthearted and sexy, and I am very slowly reading All the...

Re: Blue Foods?

Blue corn chips!
I've eaten blue Gatorade and blue icing. Of course neither of those is naturally blue, but they were blue when I ate them! Blue raspberry-flavored candies and Popsicles, too.

Re: What the worst performance you ever saw?

The musical theater group at my college always did a midnight show, usually while drunk. For some reason I went to the midnight show of their production of Rent. It was exactly as bad as you would expect.

Re: Shampoo/Conditioner

She's wrong. I mean maybe she has wavy hair that she straightens, or has the frizz that usually goes along with curls and so she finds the curly shampoo works for her, but shampoo for curly hair is definitely not going to give you curls. That's what curling irons are for.

Re: When do you feel awkward?

Re: what was wrong with your ex-lover?

well, the main thing was that he lied to me and didn't seem interested in respecting the boundaries I tried to establish as a first step to rebuilding my trust. It was also a pretty big deal to me that he wanted to sleep with other women (not to rag on polyamory generally but it is not for me and he...

Yes. There's a free weekly class here and I am trying to make it a habit. I've been maybe six or seven times and all but one felt great, I just have to work on getting myself up and out of the house on Saturday mornings. And not letting it be an excuse to be lazy the rest of the day, too!

alcohol and pets, usually.

I live here and 2. the aforementioned a...

Re: How comfortable do you feel asking about someone's race?

^ we had something like that in my last job, too - for job applicants we were supposed to fill in their race but not actually ask about it. The point was I guess to assess whether we were attracting diverse applicants but it didn't feel useful because we had so little actual data.
