[music |"Everyone Who Casts a Shadow" - Wolfsheim]

I'm a Christian and I really love my faith. But I am so tired of seeing and hearing people say bad things about my religion or stereotype me because I'm Christian. That sort of thing seems to be everywhere; that or I'm just noticing it more. But it makes me feel so bad every time it happens and I hate the feeling it gives me. I don't want to start a whole discussion about this, though. Does anybody have any ways at all to make me feel better or help me out in this? I don't know if I'm just oversensitive or what, but I'm getting so tired of dealing with it. I'd really appreciate any helpful comments.

this is kind of a longshot, but does anyone have the pottery barn christmas trio cd set? if so, would you be willing to list the songs off the second & third cd? i heard a song playing while i was in there & i'm not sure what it was... i think it was off the second or third cd, but i'm pretty sure it was the second. i want to play it for someone because i think they'd like it, but i'm too lazy to go out and get the cd.

I got a fish and most of the stuff to go with it for Yule. Snail to keep the tank clean, rocks, little plastic plant, tank, food, that water fixer stuff... and a teeny little calico fantail goldfish, about an inch long without the tail.
Purposely picked out a small fish because I was getting a smallish tank- I think it's a half gallon- round bubble type thing.

Uhm, the fish comes to the surface and gasps for air alot. How can I aerate the tank some? I've been pulling off some water into a little bottle, shaking it, and pouring it back in, but I don't think it's working[didn't really think it would help much to start..].

1. What's the difference between white and brown eggs? How come some of them have freckles or bumps?

2. How many of you are going Christmas shopping... TODAY?

How come we don't fall off the bed when we sleep at night.

(When I was a kid, I did, but I don't anymore. How does that work? Do you just learn not to?)

Can I mail a package from Canada into the States if it contains hemp? Hemp isn't illegalin the states, is it? And anyone at customs would know the difference between hemp and marijuana, right?

I feel like I'm asking a really stupid question, but I hadn't considered it until my parents argued that I couldn't send this package to the states.

Does anyone know the name of this song? (I haven’t been able to find anything on google.)
Theres a star
that shines for me…

It shines for all to see
it’s slow and this version was sung by a gruff man. It’s maybe a little bit country. I heard it as a “christmas song” in a shop yesterday.

1900 megatons? [Dec. 24th, 2004|03:22 pm]
The Question Club


Just how much devastation would that cause?

Say, over a populated area like NYC or Paris?

What about in the middle of nowhere, like somewhere out in North Dakota?

What about over an ocean?

This is why I'm asking:

Currently, about a 1 in 62 chance of that thing hitting us for 1900 megatons of love in the year 2029.

online shopping woes. [Dec. 24th, 2004|04:37 pm]
The Question Club


[mood |frustratedfrustrated]

Let's say you've been a good kid this year and Santa *cough* gave you his credit card information so you could order what you wanted online. You finally decide on what you want and order it... and put in his billing address and your shipping address. Is it customary for a company to want the shipping address to be on file with the credit card company? I'm thinking that would be really strange, especially since somebody just sent me something they bought online and shipped it to me without having it shipped to them. But maybe I'm overlooking something here... this just seems a little wonky. In fact, now that I reread that, it seems really wonky.

In that case, how would respectfully but firmly tell the service representative that's emailed you to cancel your order? Obviously they're not going to work with me, so why should I work with them.... I can get what I need somewhere else. (Extra memory for my laptop for the curious.)

Does anyone know an eyebrow person worth raving about in Boston or NYC?

The woman who's done my eyebrows for five years, Tammy Giuoag of Perfect Salon, went out of business and disappeared. She had a great eye for proportion and shape, and literally did a great job every time. She was patient and accommodating with any request, and affordable: only $10 a pop. I guess her salon closed a few months ago, but I didn't find out until today.

I know this is kind of a long shot, but any tips would be appreciated. Merry holidays!

[music |[placebo] 20th century boy]

I was just sitting here letting my brain wander...

I got to thinking. Suppose you are a writer. Suppose you would like to write a biography on/about a living person.

How would you even start to go about doing something like that?

Approach your agent? Approach the individual's agent?

I'm just curious.

[mood |draineddrained]

Let's say you're in high school or college and need a part time job while still in school. Would you rather have a low paying (just above minimum wage) but easy and fun job, or a higher paying ($2-3 above min. wage.. not that much but makes a difference) but stressful and fast-paced job?

gift issues [Dec. 24th, 2004|10:17 pm]
The Question Club
[mood |nervousnervous]
[music |oldies christmas radio]

Hello all--I'm looking at the nicest, clearest, best way to go about telling my mom I really dislike the gifts she gives me. Its not quite Christmas here so I actually haven't gotten the bad gifts, but believe me they are coming.

My mom tends to get me lots of knick knacks and basically things she would like, but that I neither like, nor have the space for. I know she means well and really is trying to get me things I would like, so I don't want to hurt her feelings. However, I feel guilty going on and on pretending to like these things because its such a waste. I feel guilty for not using them/hiding them away/throwing them out and she wastes her time and money buying things I really dislike. I'll stop rambling--you get the idea.

Basically I need to tell her I don't want knick knacks, random holiday decorations, etc without being mean. I really do appreciate that shes thinking of me, but I can't take it anymore! (and yes I realize I should have told her this before christmas day, but she has been saving up knick knacks all year I'm sure--and theres no time like the present)

I need some advice!

DVD playback [Dec. 24th, 2004|10:59 pm]
The Question Club


[mood |annoyedannoyed]

So I got this new DVD player for my birthday. When I play one of my boyfriend's everything's gravy. I went to Blockbuster tonight and rented 3 DVDs. When I try to play them I get a blue screen, then the picture appears, then starts to look like a VHS with poor tracking before apruptly going to blue screen and then doing it all over again in like the cycle of a minute. And sometimes when I have a picture I get a blinking red circle with a line, like a do not enter sign in the upper left-hand corner.

I'm figuring it's some weird Blockbuster thing, because this seems to be something different than damage to the discs themselves. What could Blockbuster have done to their discs to screw my night up so royally?
Could it be doing this because I have the video running through my VCR before it gets to my TV? Can they really detect that?
My TV is old and only has a coaxial jack, so if that's really the problem, would getting a rca to coaxial convertible thingy really solve it?
