Maybe I'm just weird, but does anyone else have mixed feelings about wearing shorts? Maybe it's because it's hard to find shorts that look remotely flattering for my body type, but I really don't wear shorts unless it's 80+ degrees. I do wear basketball shorts around the house and for the occasional errand, but Read more

The only thing worse than getting a commercial jingle stuck in your head is getting a local commercial jingle stuck in your head. Gawd, this is embarrassing.

I just found out there's a new thriller/art heist movie starring my man James McAvoy that came out today. Damn, I hope it plays in my town at some point.

I have a job interview at a bank tomorrow. Does anyone have any bank-specific interviewing tips? I've never worked in a bank before, but I have a lot of cash-handling experience, including 6 months or so as a night auditor for a hotel.

Blergh. My girlfriend's Chihuahua and my cat have always played kind of rough with each other — the dog nips at the cat's face, the cat swats at the dog — but it seems to have gotten even rougher in the past few weeks. To be honest, I'm not that worried about the cat because he's big and furry, plus he has all of his Read more

The other day I complained on here about only getting called for interviews now that I have a job. Well, I thought maybe if I started applying to jobs I actually want, they'll call me, too, and ... it worked. I have a job interview at a bank on Friday, and I'm pretty excited. Working with money is something I've

I just came back from seeing an ear, nose and throat doctor, and he recommended I get a sleep test done at the hospital. Have any of you had a sleep test before? What's it like? What should I expect? I can't remember the last time I was at a hospital for more than a few hours, and I can't imagine sleeping comfortably Read more

Naturally, as soon as I have a job (albeit a temp one), employers start calling me about interviews. Where were the calls during the first 2.5 months of my unemployment? Sheesh.

So apparently today some college basketball player sustained a double compound fracture in his lower leg during a tournament game. What exactly does that mean? I'm too afraid to Google it because I'm picturing bones poking through flesh.

According to the president of the Southern Baptist Conference, gay people and/or the push for marriage equality are why North Korea is threatening to nuke the U.S.

I had Easter lunch with my girlfriend's extended family today, and I still can't get over how nice her grandfather is. Most of the people in my gf's family are pretty conservative, and I'm always somewhat wary of how I'll be received at gatherings. When we walked into her grandparents' house today, her grandfather Read more

Guys, I hate-watched the new G.I. Joe movie tonight. Not only that, but I saw it in 3D (although that part was because my girlfriend's friend mixed up the 2D and 3D showtimes). It was so bad it was good, and the dialogue was so stupid it was funny. Also, it's hard to hate on The Rock, who had the lead in the movie.

Today I went to a farm supply store (I live in a rural area), and they had ducklings for sale. Ducklings! I wanted to take at least 10 home with me, but alas I live in an apartment.

This is probably a stupid question, but are doctors supposed to do anything about patients' illegal drug usage? I'm seeing an ENT for the first time in a while next week, and I smoke weed on the reg. Obviously, this is something I should tell someone who will be examining my throat, but I feel really sheepish about Read more

Are any of y'all into doing your own bicycle maintenance and repair? I need to replace at least one of my tires, but there aren't any bike shops in a 90-mile radius of me, so I'm going to have to order it online. Can anyone recommend a decent bike part website?

For the past week or so I haven't been able to get enough seafood. I started craving it like last Monday and even though I've had fish twice since then, I still want more. The weird part is that except for sushi, I'm usually totally indifferent to eating fish, crab, etc. Ugh, what is this?

I feel so cliché asking about this, but I don't think I have anyone IRL I could talk to about this. Anyway, my 1-year anniversary with my girlfriend is about a month away. I think making it through a year together is a pretty big deal, and I want to do something special for it. I've already asked my girlfriend a few Read more

Ugh, I just found out that one of my queer heroes (queero?) has been dealing with cancer off and on since last fall. Her name is Kate Bornstein, and she is one cool lady. She was one of the first major trans activists; I saw her speak at my college a few years ago and, as corny as it sounds, her lecture was

I have yet another cat grooming question. (I've never had my own cat before, much less a long-haired one). My boy has really long hair between his toes like a Maine Coon* does, and I was wondering if it would be okay to trim this hair. The only reason I ask is because sometimes I find bits of litter or other crumbs in Read more
