How do you dance like nobody's watching?

Been checking out Pharrell's 24 Hours of Happy and some of the people don't seem to care what they look like and totally go with it and have fun. Others are decidedly apprehensive. I would probably not even volunteer to do this sort of thing myself. For those of you who can dance like nobody's watching, or do or say something funny that might grab the attention of the room, or sing karaoke at a bar, etc, I am curious to know what goes on in your head before, during, or after you "perform." Other ways to phrase this question: What makes you a ham? Do you think about what you are doing or going to do, or just go with it? Why don't you get embarrassed when you do something fun and crazy? Or do you? What is the payoff for you? Were you born this way or did you learn it somehow?

How can I help a loved one who is abusing laxatives?

A family member I am very close to has been abusing laxatives, probably for a very long time (maybe a decade or even more, possibly to the point that it's a miracle she is still alive). She is now gravely ill. It's all very complicated, I'll try to hit the major points without being too lengthy. [more inside]

My roommate is driving me nuts and I'm wondering what my options are

Basically I paid $400 (really cheap rent) for a small room sublet in Bensonhurst and one of my friends with benefits (who I knew for about a month), heard about my situation incidentally and kept on asking me to split rent with him in the Bronx. It's not a particularly bad area and it was financially feasible (he lives alone and his dad pays half his rent just as a nice gesture, so we'd split the remaining amount - $250 a month on me and the rest on him - about the same). So primarily for financial reasons, as I could save money on rent, I started moving my things and called my landlord to tell him I'm leaving this month within a couple weeks. [more inside]

Why does my cat bite my partner when he laughs loudly?

OK, I know this is the perennial AskMe "My cat does this crazy thing" question, and that the answer will be the eternal "because cats are weird", but I want to find out if anyone else's cat does this. When my spouse is laughing loudly, for instance (but not exclusively) in response to being tickled, my cat will launch himself at him and attempt to bite him (fortunately, it's always been through clothes). This has happened three times. It was not a playful bite, but rather a full-on chomp. The cat is very sweet at all other times, if occasionally a bit jumpy. Has anyone else seen this behavior, or have any idea what's going on, or how to make the cat less reactive to loud laughter?
