where is that numerology meme?

About a month ago there was a numerology meme circulating around LJ. The link took you to a website where you type in your first, last and middle name. It gave you the exact number that your full name added up to and then a somewhat lengthy description of you based on that number. Does anyone have the link to that numerology meme?

Silly thing really, and I should have paid attention tot he whole thing.

The following sentance is from a news blurb about Hurricane Wilma.


Cuba evacuated more than 200,000 people.

My first thought was just where did they evacuate to?

Well hello, gorgeous.

Ever catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror - could be in a store, on the wall in a fancy building, reflection in a window, car mirror etc. and think: "My, but I look good right now"?

Maybe when you're all dolled up for a formal occasion, sometimes when you're just out of your morning shower, makeup scrubbed off, and it just hits you out of the corner of your eye and you suddenly feel the urge to break into narcissistic song? (ie. "I feel pretty" "I'm too sexy for my shirt" "You sexy thang" "Milkshake song", whatever).

If so, tell.

How do you ladies supress the urge to procreate? I feel like my body is screaming at the top of its lungs "BABY! BABY! BABY! GIVE US SPERM!!" and I just can't do that right now, maybe in a few years, yes but now no. But it's really messing with my head. Is there other women out there having this feeling? (BTW I'm 27 so maybe it's because I'm at the baby age???) I just hate having this feeling of wanting a baby right now. My body needs to be patient. Help?

What do you think about clogs?
Fashion wise?
Utility wise?
Who wears clogs, and can you wear them with everything?
Are they really what you wear when your feet are too fat to fit into anything else?

Should I buy the ultra-cute pair I saw for $30 when I've never worn clogs before and don't know if I'll like them in the long run?

Have you ridden a bullet train?

One of these:


If so, what did you think? In Washington State, we're working on incremental upgrades to get similar service going between Portland, OR and Vancouver, BC (with Seattle in the middle). Any testimonials? Ideas for good things to tell people about them to get public support? The Florida bullet train project floundered after Jeb Bush got into office, but we have a transit-friendly governor up here now, so it's worth a shot to push ahead.

I'm having a Halloween party and was wondering if any of you have any good ideas for things to serve. I know that I'm making orange and green jello shots but that's all I have so far.

In particular, I'm looking for:
A good punch recipe
Spooky hors d'oeuvres and desserts
Decoration ideas that don't cost a lot of money

Thanks. :)

The end.

How do you gain Security within a romantic relationship?

My boyfriend and i have been having problems, and I think a part of that is my lack of security. He has not given me any reason not to trust him, but in the past, which I KNOW I need to let go of, just about every person I've ever been involved with has cheated or lied. I seriously think there is something wrong with me, but no one will tell me what it is.. I always get the "it's not you, it's me" and that means it IS me..
anyway, with my current boyfriend, I KNOW that he isn't going to cheat on me, or lie to me.. but yet.. I don't know..

Is there a way to let go of the past and really trust someone again?

I did my groceries with a friend last night, and when i grabbed shaving cream she told me i'm weird, that girls don't use shaving cream for their legs.

So, a question for the girls: Do you use shaving cream (or something else) when you do your legs, or do you just use water and a razor (owch)?

movie costumes?

I'm trying to help my parents come up with a Halloween costume idea. The theme of the party is movie characters. It can't be anything too scary because there will be young kids there. I can usually come up with great costumes for them, but for some reason I'm stuck on this one. Any ideas?

I have had a split down the center of my thumbnail for a very long time. I tried everything from nail repair kits to superglue to epoxy. I came to accept it as it was, but after a mishap with the laundry basket I now have a new problem. Rather than take a picture, I made a MSPaint representation of my problem..

Is there ANYTHING I can do? It's folded up and catches on everything. I tried bandaids and putting tape around it but they don't stick for more than half a day. It's really gross being able to see that far down under your nail. I really don't want to cut it off myself.. is there a chance it'll maybe fix by itself? Or is cutting it my only option?

Hey guys,

I'm trying to decide what to be for Halloween. I was stumped for ideas, so I decided to buy some stuff and just see if any ideas come to me. So far I have a blue wig, fake eyelashes and purple and black striped tights.
Any ideas?

A question I know has been asked, but I could find the answers to them.

What are some good webcomics? I've been reading questionable content, ctrl-alt-del, penny arcade and queen of wands. Can you suggest something simliar to those?

Should I tell either my current employer or my prospective employer that I am planning on joining the military in December (or signing the papers as soon as they meet my demand that they haven't yet)?

Is it just me, or has question asking gone done recently?

Do you pay a fee for a bank account? How much?

Oh, and if you don't mind, how much money do you have in your saving/checking account?

Is the blanket term African - American kind of stupid to anyone else? Not all black people are African. I don't even think you can say that when you look at their geneology, all black people come from Africa.
I'm white, but if I were black I'd be annoyed that people assumed r called me African when I might not be.

Do you laugh out loud at something funny when you're alone or do you only audibly laugh if there are other people around? Does it depend on what it is (book, movie, tv, website) or if the people around you are looking at the same thing (everyone watching the same tv show vs. reading a book on the bus)? Does it matter if you know the other people around you or not?

I'm asking because I'll laugh out loud at anything that's funny enough, and I'm wondering how weird I am and how weird people on the bus think I am :D

Are there any girls/ladies/women here who can pee standing up? Do you have any advice for someone who'd like to? I tried but I just can't seem to relax enough to... go.

Does anyone know how I can get my stomach to look flat without wearing one of those flattener things? I was going to buy one, but they were $20ish bucks, and I don't have that kind of money to spend on something that I'll only use once.

I bought a dress and it's not tight against my body, but it conforms to the shape, and having a kid, my stomach still sticks out. I want to look good for my cousin's wedding tomorrow.

I have a problem with my hotmail account. You know how when you're on MSN you can check your email from there, right? Well when I click on the "Open My Inbox" button it opens up Microsoft Outlook, not Hotmail. I can't get rid of Outlook because I have another account I use with that, an ntlworld.com account that I don't want to delete. So my question is: How do I go back to MSN Messenger opening hotmail.com instead of Microsoft Outlook? Any help really appreciated, this is driving me mental =(

some random questions of the evening:

1. is there a high quality brand of cat food that you wouldn't find at a supermarket, but would probably find at a pet store or at the vet's office, that doesn't contain bone meal and is made in varieties for overweight cats, elderly cats, etc? personal recommendations welcome

2. last night my right eye was burning and the skin below it (above my cheekbone) suddenly turned pink and puffy. you could totally see the line where the pink puffiness ended and my normal cheek skin began. however my eye itself wasn't red or anything. it was itchy and burny though, and so was the skin. WTF??? I thought it might be pinkeye but honestly not sure.

3. do you find that you can't drink a certain type of alcoholic beverage anymore if you had a bad time with it the last time? (example, i did some whiskey shots last month and went overboard and puked a lot...now i can't stand the idea of whiskey and it previously was my favorite thing to drink straight)

Soap + sock = ???

Hi everyone.

One of my professors has been wondering this for a very, very long time, which resulted in me wondering too:
What's the deal with hitting people with a bar of soap/orange in a sock/towel? These are the only theories I can think of:

1) Soap and socks are easy to find, especially in institutional settings,
2) The sock will muffle the sound of someone getting hit.

There are rumors about it not leaving bruises, but I'm thinking that anything that hits skin hard enough to hurt is going to break some capillaries.

Also, since I'm thinking of it, can anyone name a movie in which a lovable dog is killed? I mean, other than Old Yeller.

Gambling movies/books/etc?

Can I get some suggestions for gambling-oriented movies (or books for that matter)? Mainly fictional, but I'll take whatever I can get my hands on. Specifically on poker players.

I've got Rounders, so that's a great start. Maverick's another good one, too.

I'm doing NaNoWriMo again this year and want to get as much info as possible (I'm not a stickler for facts, really anything that is concievable enough to be entertaining). The novel centers on professional gamblers, so any references are appreciated!

Smelly Problem

I need help quickly! I think I have a dead rodent in the wall - the smell is overpowering, sickening and throughout the entire house and I am supposed to have a Hallween party next weekend!

What can I do to get rid of the smell if I cant find the "body"?? Is there any chemical, mirical spray, someone I can call?

PLEASE HELP!! I am desperate!!

girly clothes

Ok I'm 18, pretty tall, and don't have a small frame, I wear size 8 or 9.
I'm pretty boyish but I'm sick of boy's clothes. I have a hard time with girly clothes, though, since everything I find looks either 1) too 'womanly' as in... I feel I'm 40.. or 80... too serious. 2) girly clothes look... bulky on me.. since I'm big.

So I don't really know what to do. Everything I try on looks wierd on me, maybe because of my shape and my curly hair + eye glasses (for a preview look at my journal, click ok cupid, and on each of the picutres.

I'm in Maine right now, does any one know where I can buy girly clothes (I'm from New Jersey so I'm used to have a lot of shopping centers around me, but Maine is kinda limited. I'm in the Orono/Bangor area). I'd like to hear from you even if you don't know what shops are around here.

Any ideas how to find what looks good on me as well?

Help! ^_^
Edit:
I don't want something plain.. I want something .. like.. I don't know how to describe it, I'm trying so hard.

Except I dont like the colors or the design. I like how the material is, for the chest part. How it creates that texture. I don't know how to find blouses like that.
