What does a Big Mac taste like?

I think I ate them a looooong time ago and stopped for some reason (didn't like it or they were too expensive or we stopped liking McDonalds or something... I dunno) but now I have the weirdest craving for one, but I don't want to waste my money if I won't like it.

So I guess I have two questions...
1) What does a Big Mac taste like?
2) What all comes on a Big Mac? (I used to know the song...)


3) What does Thousand Island dressing taste like?

What is this book?

I've seen a few of you guys do this, and everyone seems right on.

I read this book probably in grade school, which would be early 90's.

It's about a brother and sister who run away (they either already live in NYC or run away there) but they end up sleeping in a museum. At the end, they end up at some rich ladie's house searching through papers.

Yeah, it's not much to go on.

Major League Lacrosse

I'm amazed they can get air time even on ESPN2 late at night, or anyone attending the games.

Does anyone else think that it would be better if they added a glowie thing around the ball like FOX did for hockey for a while? (I can't tell where it is on my TV. Maybe if I had a 60" plasma with HD... except that I would be playing video games on it constantly.) Or given as much as they are allowed to beat on each other, would it be better if they hired a bunch of Shaolin monks with staff training to play? Or maybe make them play like the girls and not let them wear helmets?

I know this was discussed here before...a long long time ago but I need it now.

How can I block myself from going to a certain website? (myspace to be precise...Im planning on murdering Tom for the pain and turmoil his lil site has caused me)

Step by step answers would be much appreciated..Im not very computer savvy.


Jesus, sorry I was tired last night....I have windows xp....How I forgot to include that I dont know and Im running IE if that matters.

Mini Candies

Why do mini candies always taste better than their full size counterparts?

This was inspired by my love of Mini Reese's Pieces and the sadness from finding out my local Kroger (the only place I can usually find them) is about to stop selling them. The cashier wasn't sure if it's just (that)/Kroger or if (GOD FORBID) Hershey's is going to stop making them.

mixing up and mispronouncing words

Are there some words that you just can't get right?

I can't always pronounce the difference between worm and warm.

I also have a friend that says color ... collar. (like a shirt collar)

And my personal favorite - a coworker recently said snickers (the candy) ... sneakers.
I pointed it out to him and he was totally shocked no one ever told him the difference.


...are some good chick-flick mooovies to watch?
I'm going over to a friend's to BBQ and hang out and drink wine tonight and I am in charge of the movies so please give me some ideas.

I'm looking for a website that lists ringtones. Not the kind you can download. I have an older phone, but I can still program songs using notes and stuff, like "A3, C#, B" etc.

I googled but all I could find was the newer sites for downloadable ringtones.

Site suggestions?

1. how do you go about finding one of those broker people to help you find a house/apartment to rent that's not really listed anywhere, etc.? and how much do they cost?

2. if you've ever introduced a new cat to your old one, and the old one was less than pleased (to say the least), how long did it take for old cat to get over it? (and by the way, it apparently looks like "new cat's" name is "widget", but thanks to everyone for your suggestions.)

I was reading about obtaining residency for North Dakota. My husband and I are moving there (where I'm from) and.. well, I guess I just find it hard to believe that you only have to live there for a couple of months to get residency.

Is it harder in other states?

So seriousely, any body here from the UK and know anything about what it takes to get a fathers rights taken away and have children adopted by a step father? I know it sounds harsh, but I just found out my ex is just out of prison for ATTEMPTED MURDER, he has a history of violent incidents, he has never paid maintenence, he turns up infrequently, we had not seen or heard from him in over six months prior to this announcment. He keeps braking promises to the kids, misses birthdays, obviously favours the eldes and winds them all up to high doe by turning up unannounced and he is just the biggest waste of space ever. I do not want him involved in my childrens up bringing any longer. But how the hell do I stop him? All the websites I've seen are concerned with helping fathers get to see their kids when mums have stopped them for no apparent reason! What oh what do I do? And yes, I have emialed a lawyer, but they cost pennies they does!

Age differences

I'm pretty sure this has been asked before but I think it was a while ago.

Have you ever been in a relationship with someone much older/younger than you are? What kind of obstacles came up in the relationship directly due to the age difference?

What did your family think?

Did anybody (strangers, friends, etc) ever judge you because of the age difference? Does society still consider it a big deal?

Okay, I've been trying to remember this for years.

Anyone recall the name of this movie, it probably came out about 12+ years ago. This young boy has a neighbor that's a witch, and she turns him into a mouse. There's a whole conference with witches, and he somehow ends up there, I think trying to get someone to turn him back. Lots of other kids were turned into mice. And there's a dinner where the witches are eating soup and the mice fall into the soup...

:\ I want to rent it again. Haha, I loved that movie.

growing up

Remember how when you were a kid, you'd observe what the adults did, and find fault with that and say or think "When I'm an adult, I'm going to..."?

What are some of those things, and do you do them now?

If an assignment is due and these are the specifications given:

"Session 3. July 11 – July 15.
First Assignment Due.
Papers are to be delivered electronically in the drop box by the end of the day that they are due."

Email from the professor:
"Dear Students,
In response to the many emails I received the first assignment is due on July 15, by 12:00 am,
Mr. Professor"

Do you interpret it as the paper is due at 12AM of the 15th like 7 hours from now, or 12AM after the 15th is done ("the end of the day that they are due") i.e. a day and 7 hours from now?

Band names

I have formed an impromptu band for a one-night gig/surprise for my husband. I am singing a set of songs that is a collection of songs that HE put on MY tapes and some that I put on HIS tapes and then some that both of us listened to together. We are doing maybe 15 songs total. The band consists of me and three good friends.

We still have no name. This is more than likely a one-time dealie.

Can you suggest a name for us?

Mine is B.

Which do you find more annoying in your work environment?

a. Music that you hate being played loudly enough, right next to you, that you can't ignore it


b. Music that you like being played so quietly that all you hear is static unless you really strain to hear it


1. Do you comment often on your friends entries?
2. Do you think you should comment more often?
3. Have you ever left a mean comment on someone's journal just because you're in a bad mood?
4. Do you like receiving comments on your journal?
5. Have you ever made an entry you really want people to comment on, but no one commented?

What would be a sure fire way to get some overdraft fees taken off my checking account?

I know, I know :\ This is not a regular occurance at all. My paycheck came late last week, because of the holiday and I wasn't informed until it was too late. There are two fees, one from a check and one from a debit card.

I really needed that money.

How many people do you have on your friends list? If it's over 20, how do you keep up with it all? (I would get bogged down with reading.)

Also, I found a pill in the carpet of my apartment. My roommate is out of town till Saturday. Is there a site anyone knows of where I can find out what it is? If it's for the cat I want to make sure she takes it. It's a very small white pill with the letter G on one side, and L 10 on the other side.

Class and LJ

For those of you in school (probably college/Uni, I guess):

1) Do you ever go online during class?

2) Do you ever LJ during class?

3) If you don't have internet during class, what do you do when you get bored?

4) My entire class is in the computer lab right now, and we're all bored and e-mailing each other. What say you?

fav musician - worst song

I find that each of my favorite bands/musicians have at least one song that I absolutely hate.

Now i LOVE Nine Inch Nails, i adore each and every album like it's a part of me.
But i think "Down In It" is a terrible awful song, skip it every time, and cringe if i have to sit through it. It's so very painful to listen to.

What are your votes for worst song from your favorite artists?


After that "would you keep it as a stump" question, I was wondering if anyone actually had a deformity. I don't have anything major, my right ankle always looks like it's swollen thanks to an injury a few months ago (I call it my cankle), and my pinky finger on my right hand is crooked from a few breaks.

I can't find a picture where it's not all bruised and gross :P

When I was a little kid I remember watching a TV show that was all about math. It was made up of a bunch of short sketches that had to do with math related things. One ongoing one they had was about these two math detectives, one of them was named Tuesday. Another sketch they always had was "The Adding Family", a spoof of the Adams family. Anyways, I can't for the life of me remember what this show was called so if anyone else has seen this show, please comment so I won't forever think I am an insane person who once upon a time thought there was a show on TV all about math (that I really liked to watch)

What is the name of the game played (in a car) where, once at a red light, everyone gets out of the car and changes seats before the light turns back to green?

Is that game legal if everyone is registered/insured on that vehicle? (I'm in Canada if that makes a difference).

(I'm just asking out of curiosity).

right now, the people in the apt upstairs are running around and banging things a lot. They are making a lot of noise. I can hear them yelling at each other. The woman keeps screaming every now and then and it sounds like people are running and things are being thrown. SHould I call the police? I'm worried the woman is being beaten or something and I didn't do anything about it. But, I don't want to interfere if they are just having a normal fight....

1) Favorite store to shop for clothes?

2) Does anyone else, besides me, dislike high heels? I like thick soles, but not just the heels. I'm on speech team so we have to wear nice shoes, so I wear chunky heels, but I can't wear stilettos to save my life.

3) How much time per day, or week, are you completely by yourself?

Lately, I've been hearing a lot about a book coming out. I was wondering if anyone knows what it is.
It's some Harry Porter book. I'm guessing it's some autobiography of some old football player or a baseball player. Am I close?
It would be cool if it was a hockey player, because I like hockey.
With my luck, Harry Porter be some politician!

datings, weddings, t-shirts and movies

Would you stop dating someone because they have bad taste in books? How about music and movies?

Should I go to a wedding in Idaho (I'm in San Francisco) for a not-so-close friend? She says that some people in the town wave Confederate flags and her fiance's family is homophobic. I'm a Filipino dyke (and I'm kinda thinking that it would be cool to how up all butched out in a suit and tie).

Where can you buy relatively inexpensive skater t-shirts online?

What was the last (1 to 3) movies you saw?

Summer Vacation.

So, I'm in the middle of packing crunch for a three week vacation to Vancouver, BC. (Squee!)

Beyond the basics (clothes, toiletries, towels, swimming gear, photo camera, iPod Mini, books to read during the flight, etc) is there anything you can think of that I shouldn't forget to bring with me? I'm staying at a friend's, but also spending a week at a youth hostel.

I have been involved in a long distance relationship for five years. It was never the intention for it to be long distance for that period of time, but circumstances beyond our control made it so. Both of us knew for absolute certain that one day we would be together, and every major decision I made was with this certainty in mind. I gave up my 'good' job, my house, my car, and I sold off most of the things I knew I wouldn't be taking with me. We would visit 5 or 6 times a year for three weeks at a time, we talked on the phone daily and emailed constantly.

Whenever someone messages, or I try to message someone on AOL Instant messenger, the screen to send messages in will come up, but it will staye white, as if it's trying to load or something, and then I'll get an error message that just says, "AOL Instant Messenger has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

Then when I click for more information, it will say
"Error signature: AppName: aim.exe AppVer: 5.9.3797.0 ModName: msvcr70.dll
ModVer: 7.0.9466.0 Offset: 000013d6"

Of course, when I click close, it will shut down AIM. I've uninstalled AIM, redownloaded it and reinstalled it, but this happens everytime. It's been going on for the past two days. If it helps, I have Windows XP.

Any ideas? I already checked on the AIM site, but it's of no help.

Another question, spawned from this question : Why is cereal such a hot commodity that children are stealing it/having it stolen from them? In every commercial for cereal, either a gang of kids mugs some poor animated cereal mascot, or the mascot is on the lam for taking breakfast from kids. What's the deal?
