this whole girl thing just isn't working out.

So, I posted that pic awhile ago with suggestions on how to get the red out. Well, I went to Wal-Mart and read some boxes, and I found this stuff that said it restores your hair color to it's natural color, and removes all the hair dye. Honestly, I didn't question that possibility at the moment, so I bought it.
I ended up stripping my hair. My hair was bright yellow, orange, and white all over. It was scary, but I said whatever...alteast the red is out, so now it will take the light brown color better. So I dyed it brown.
When I rinsed my my hair out, the color looked great, aside from my bands...which are were left with a faint blue/grey in certain lights.
So I dyed it again. In hopes to cover the blue/grey.
Well, I made it worse.

So...since my bangs went through all that blonde, and stripping and dying, I'm figuring that's why.

But how do I get rid of that tint now?????

What song is playing during the scene in Old School where Will Ferrel's character falls into the pool after being shot by the tranq dart? I want to download it but I can't figure it out from the soundtrack list.

Has anyone ever tried diet pills that actually worked? Is it true that they suppress the appetite? I would just like some information and details on your experiences.

A friend, her boyfriend, myself, and her father, are going to NYC in a few weeks. We'll be there for the weekend before Christmas, and we want to pack in as many touristy things as possible. So far, we have:

- skating in Rockefeller Center
- using the restrooms in the Plaza (long running joke)
- Spinning ourselves silly in the center of Times Square
- Eating hot dogs at Grey's Papaya. Best. hot. dogs. ever.
- Spotting yet another MTV celeb in Tower Records.
- Dressing up for a visit to Tavern on the Green.
- Wandering through Central Park and re-enacting the scenes from Home Alone.
- Dinner in China Town.

Any other ideas? We're all 18, but keep in mind we don't have that much cash.

Does anyone actually eat 3 meals per day?
If you do, do you even eat snacks in between all that?

I only eat once per day, IF that. I can't imagine ever finishing 3 full meals.

Is the following for real? I went to and couln't find anything on it. If it is real, you all must send me your e-mail addresses to get you in on the deal. :D What the heck, we have nothing to lose.

To all of my friends, I do not usually forward messages, But
this is from my good friend Pearlas Sandborn and she really is
an attorney.

If she says that this will work - It will work. After all, What
have you got to lose? SORRY EVERYBODY.. JUST HAD TO TAKE THE
CHANCE!!! I'm an attorney, And I know the law. This thing is for
real. Rest assured AOL and Intel will follow through with their
promises for fear of facing a multimillion-dollar class action
suit similar to the one filed by PepsiCo against General
Electric not too long ago.

Dear Friends; Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill
Gates sharing his fortune. If you ignore this, You will repent
later. M icrosoft and AOL are now the largest Internet companies
and in an effort to make sure that Internet Explorer remains the
most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an
e-mail beta test.

When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will
track it ( If you are a Microsoft Windows user) For a two weeks
time period.

For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will
pay you $245.00 For every person that you sent it to that
forwards it on, Microsoft will pay you $243.00 and for every
third person that receives it, You will be paid $241.00. Within
two weeks, Microsoft will contact you for your address and then
send you a check.

I thought this was a scam myself, But two weeks after receiving
this e-mail and forwarding it on. Microsoft contacted me for my
address and withindays, I receive a check for $24,800.00. You
need to respond before the beta testing is over. If anyone can
affoard this, Bill gates is the man.

It's all marketing expense to him. Please forward this to as
many people as possible. You are bound to get at least
$10,000.00. We're not going to help them out with their e-mail
beta test without getting a little something for our time. My
brother's girlfriend got in on this a few months ago. When i
went to visit him for the Baylor/UT game. She showed me her
check. It was for the sum of $4,324.44 and was stamped "Paid in

Like i said before, I know the law, and this is for real.

Intel and AOL are now discussing a merger which would make them
the largest Internet company and in an effort make sure that AOL
remains the most widely used program, I ntel and AOL are running
an e-mail beta test. __

When you forward this e-mail to friends, Intel can and will
track it( if you are a Microsoft Windows user)for a two week
time period.

EDIT: I must first admit to receiving this about a year and a half ago, maybe two and secondly thank you all for helping me win a bet. It was a silly bet on who could get the most e-mails in 30 min. Boredom and all that that implies. I'm sorry for using you guys but money is money. I love you.

Has anyone ever called one of those "How's My Driving?" numbers on a truck?  If so, what happens?

I saw this van driving like an idiot yesterday and I was tempted to call the number on the back of his truck.

These people who overfeed their children, the ones that give two year olds 3 hamburgers and a dozen doughnuts, etc., to the point that the toddler is 100+ pounds, developing diabetes and high blood pressure, why can't the child be taken away from them? Why isn't this considered child abuse by the courts?

That's what it comes down to. They are poisoning their child, and it WILL kill them eventually. And yet they are allowed to do this? Why?

Stupid Sweater That (Still) Makes Me Cry

If someone you love died, would you keep their stuff?

Every time I see my grandfather's sweater I start to cry and I feel miserable and I miss him so. My uncle and mother say I should keep the sweater to remember him, but I don't want to keep it because it puts me in misery. And I've never been very much into things. I think I can remember him just fine through my own mind and photographs. Ya know?

What do you think you would do?

Sigh...does working for several hours on homework suck or what?

That's not my question, Chemistry today our teacher was making a comparison between alloys and those almighty colorful plastic ball pits at playplaces. I had forgotten about those before :D

So my real question is this: do you all remember those? Did you like playing in them? Any interesting ball pit stories you'd like to share? I remember I lost a sock in one once and was real upset...but other than that they were pretty cool.

My little sister is turning eleven on monday.
I've already half bought the Sims 2 for her (and a little for me, I have to admit,) but what else can I do for her?

She's not of the girly type, yet likes Bratz dolls and The Princess Diaries. I can't just paint her nails or something (not like I'd be good at it anyway.)
She likes video games and books, but not too much.

So I'm at a loss. Help?

Icon Communities

Does it annoy you when you browse through an icon community entry only to have the thread starter stating that you can only access his/her icons by asking to be added to his/her Friends Only journal?

This has happened to a few of my friends. It seems everytime we try to log on to AIM using a particular screen name, it freezes at step two, when it's Verifying name and password. This error isn't there for any other screename, just this particular one. Any ideas on how to solve the problem? I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, that did nothing.

I have to do a project for an A/V-esque type class about commercials.

So, my question-

What's the best/most memorable commercial you can think of? It can be old or new, it doesn't matter.

Thanks. ^___^

We have a dsl connection on our computer, and when I log onto my name on Windows (XP), AOL instant messenger will sign on automatically.

However, in the hour(s) I'm on, AIM will send up those little notification signs that "so and so has just signed on," all the time. Meaning, I'll be in the midst of an IM conversation, and the sign on banners for every name of everyone who is online at the moment will come up. This happens every 10-20 minutes, and is driving me nuts.

What's happening? Is my connection going in and out?

How many close friends do you have? How many people who you see and talk with frequently (perhaps friends, but not the closest)? How many acquaintances? Do you think you are in contact with too many people, not enough, or the right number?
