Me: Turkey (no, really?), stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, creamed onions, rutabagas, rolls, and cranberry sauce. My dad almost always burns the rolls... lol.
1) What do you think about the 'Men cleverer than women' claim?
2) What do you think are the -most- cutting edge trends in culture (art, literature, music & technology) today?
3) What do you think about in the shower?
thanks. If it helps, i'm looking for, most likely, about a 5 megapixel one, and likely not one with the interchangeable lenses.
Thanks for the help!
I was thinking I could just keep like a "tip jar" in my car in the backseat drink holder, with some cute little sign asking people to kick in their spare change. 1) Would you think that was obnoxious? 2) Would you ever put any money in it? 3) I'm not crazy about the idea but I can't think of anything else, can you?
My mother goes to hypnotherapy to deal with her depression, she seems happy with it, and I am happy with her hypnotherapist as without even knowing me he was nice enough to give me a very nice rare book that is now the pride of my collection :o)
I am thinking about going this way to try to quit smoking because as well as normal health issues I am also prone to nasty attacks that can be very dangerous, I have tried other ways but I simply do not have the will power.
I heard of a guy locally who is not just a hypnotherapist but an actual doctor, he is privet but works alongside the NHS – he charges £300, it is guaranteed apparently. Thing is I am in a lot of debt so £300 is not easy to come by even though I could easily make that money back in a few months of non-smoking, I just want to know if it is going to be worth my trying – what are the chances of this actually working for me do you think? How about long-term?
My tire popped at 1am in the morning and my jack was broken. Luckily this guy stopped and helped me. I thought it was very nice of him, especially seeing all these other people just pass me by.
Also, Amazon.com ships to PO Box's right?
What do you do when it's too hot to go out and do anything?
Do you have a change jar? How often do you cash it in?
Has anyone ever worked at the YMCA? I was thinking about applying there as a recptionist or a childcare provider, but I just didn't know how the atmosphere was.
Anyone who has eczema(sp?), how do you help get rid of the rash/itch?
Second, I've got a dilemma. I was signed up for classes at work (I work at McDonald's, they're a ServSafe and a shift management course) - once I get verified from both these classes, I'll make an extra buck an hour. These classes are September 13-14 and 20-22 respectively. That means I'll be missing two sessions of two of my college classes, and one session of my other college class. I need to go to these McDonald's classes because I'm paying for college on my own, and if I don't get a raise, it's going to be harder to afford next semester. But, in turn, I have to miss some classes. I basically have to miss college to pay for college.
Do you think it's a good idea? What should I do?
i always have had a tough time shaving b/c the hairs on my face are very coarse and seem to be ingrown.
I got an m3 power razor in an effort to be able to shave more easily(the razor vibrates and pushes the hair out for a closer shave), but this hasn't worked b/c I literally have to scrape my face with the blade to get all the hairs off my face.
any ideas would be great.
also: I cant shave my moustache area because i have these pimples that won't heal properly and always open up when I shave. this is also on my chin.
any ideas on how to heal them once and for all?
I'll get that popup message that says Firefox has encountered an error and has to shut down.
Anyone else having this problem? Advice on fixing it? Maybe go back to the previous version?
also, have you ever checked out this?
you can see recalls or complaints from people... there are 84 for the car i want- from fires to break noise to whatever... should i be concerned?
what regular maintenance is required for cars? how often? how much does that tend to cost?
how much is your insurance? how much is too much to pay? (they're asking for almost $700/6 months) What features (of insurance) aren't really needed? (i'm 19 so i cant get a rental, so rental reimbursement is out...) are there crazy unexpected things i should plan for/set aside a ton of cash in case of?
did reading other peoples complains make you paranoid too?
If yes, what is your favorite?
2. Have you ever cheated or been cheated on?
3. How did it make you feel? OR Why did you cheat?

6. b)How long did you cheat for?
7. a)Would you or have you stayed with someone who cheated on you?

8. Is honesty always the best policy?

"If you can read this, you are too close!"
"My mom just got out of prison. She won't get caught a second time."
I need to get some shirts for my sisters that tell the guys to back off. Any ideas?
"Sometimes people surprise us by what they are able to achieve against all odds. Recall a situation in which you were sure that someone was going to fail, but it did not happen. What factors seemed to make the sucess impossible? How did this person achieve a goal despite everything? use these ideas to write a Modern David story. Be sure to illustrate clearly a person battling against a giant opponent. blhablhalbhalhb"
It is due this Monday, the 29th.
All I've come up with is Lance Armstrong, which is a last resort because I know 349739 other people are doing that already. All suggestions are welcome. Please help :D
Anyhoo. Recently, I have been listening to the new(ish) albums by the Killers and Keane. I love 'em.
A few of my all-time fave artists include the Smiths, Ben Folds Five, Rufus Wainwright, and Hanson (no joke).
Can anyone suggest some new artists/bands that might appeal to me? Thanks.
ETA: Okay, I just restarted the computer and now it works okay. It wouldn't work after I had shut it down last night and turned it on this morning, so that's why I originally thought another restart wouldn't have helped. But it did, yay.
Caffeine is in all the usual suspects (coffee, tea, and cola) as well as in chocolate, other soft drinks (including some orange sodas and root beers), and "energy" drinks. It's also in some over-the-counter drugs, including some headache, cold, and allergy remedies. The amount of caffeine in coffee and tea varies widely, depending on whether they're brewed or instant, weak or strong.
But how much does it vary between brewed and instant??
i don't wear reading glasses, i just like the chic look of them.
so here's the question: have you ever seen anyone wear frames without lenses? am i ridiculous for even wanting to?
What's the biggest raise you've ever received? The smallest? (You don't have to give a monetary value, just a percentage is fine).;
I swear to god when I was little I heard a different version of this song. It was more poppy and it was a female voice singing. Do you have any idea who this might have been? It was probably around the late 80's early 90's.
I know this has to be true because I heard this song (the original by Toto) about a year ago, and when it hit the chorus I went "Hey, this sounds really familiar!! But this isn't the song I know because I remember a girl's voice!!"
How many remakes HAVE there been of this song, if any?
1) When I fall into a really deep sleep, my spine readjusts/realigns itself during the course of the night. In the morning, if I stretch, the bones "crack" or "snap" into place & it feels great. Does anyone know what I mean? Anyhow, I've heard this is not good for you (like cracking your knuckles), & I've heard it doesn't make a difference. What have you heard?
2) How to deal with people who are afraid of intimacy? Even in the context of friendship -- People who are afraid to get close to anyone.
3) We're all familiar with gold diggers. What about people who are turned off by money?? What are your feelings on money in relationships? If you had the money, would you join a club like this?
And yes, my blabbering contains a question.
If someone close to you has ever gone away for college/university:
1. How far away was it?
2. How did you deal with them being away in the beginning?
3. Did you keep in contact? If yes, with what? Ex: Letters, email, etc.
I am absolutely unable to figure out the question she wants us to answer, though, and normally I find out the answer to everything online. Either it's really poorly worded or I know nothing at all about the subject--which, admittedly, is true. (Marathons have nothing to do with the class I'm taking, fortunately.)
Here's the assignment:
Go on the Web and find the time Salazar ran in the New York marathon at mile 17 when he won the NY marathon.I'm assuming she wants the time that Salazar reached mile 17 when he won the NY Marathon. Fine. Two problems. One is that Salazar won that marathon three years in a row, and the other is that I can't find his time for ANY mile 17, let alone for the NY Marathon.
Help me, pleeease! I've looked everywhere, and I suspect that it's right under my nose but I'm getting so frantic that I can't see it. AAHHH!
***EDIT*** rinna_delenn found it. She is brilliant! Thank you so much, everyone. I can't believe how nice you all were to look so hard for that. :)
But... does this mean anything for the original judge? Do they get some sort of reprimand when they make decisions that are later overturned?
Basically... how are judges controlled?
Also... what country are you from, if it's a very country-specific thing?
The choices are:
Mr and Mrs Smith
The Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy
Do you know who/what my username is referring to? and What decade of life are you in (teens, 20s, 30s, etc.)?
This is what happens when I'm bored and drinking coffee and perusing lj :)
Do people still do that? I remember seeing it in college a lot, but not so much anymore.
And - what do you think is the perfect age to have children?
The Question: How can I stop the evil brother from downloading things hither and thither? The idea of getting some kind of Net Nanny just popped in to my mind...do any of you use a Net Nanny program or something similar? Would it help in this situation? Any advice is definitely appreciated.
(By the way, I'm using Windows XP and Firefox, if it matters.)
If you don't know what I'm on about, does anyone know if there's something like that which works with Winamp I could use?
Ever find anything interesting in a hotel room?
Any idea how to get my font back to normal?
I've been using IE, but today I'm using Mozilla Firefox, and I like it better so far. No pop-ups, yet anyway.
(I'm in the UK by the way)
1. bake a cake
2. explore new london (my town)
3. go ghost hunting
4. watch the movie "gummo"
5. drink a rum and coke (if possible)
6. make beaded bracelets for my friends
