when you see the disney logo (specifically the castle with walt disney's name underneath) do you think of the 'd' in disney as a d?

i always sort of perceive it as a backwards G with a line through it. i mean, i know it says disney, but i don't look at it as a capital d. am i the only one?

[wordbox]
Okay, this might sound really dumb... but is it okay to hand in a paper more than once? (I'm a university student, if that matters). I'm very attached to a personal narrative I wrote a while back for one class, and I have edited it slightly from the original. I would like to use this paper again for one of my classes, after adding on to it a bit (to the beginning and the end). Is this okay? It's my own work, but I wasn't sure if there was something wrong with doing this. Thanks.

1) I'm looking for the exact phrasing & author of a sentence that goes something like, "Don't sit too close at the ballet, it ruins the illusion"
Couldn't find it on Google...

2) Did your parents let you play video games when you were a child?  Why?  Why not?  Which ones?  What was your favorite & why?

3) I write/talk to my emotionally mature friends for advice about my emotionally immature friends.  Why is it that half of the former group suspected that I was subtly trying to convey a problem between us even though nothing neagtive/dramatic had occurred recently, whereas the latter group won't even acknowledge any problems despite my confronting them directly & our having huge fights???

[mood |exhaustedexhausted]

I went to bed at midnight tonight, but I was woken up rather violently at around 2 (let's just call it a fire alarm for the sake of ease). I have a lot of problems getting back to sleep after being woken up... so now, at 3:30, I'm still awake. I really need to get back to sleep, as I have a midterm in the morning. I'm completely exhausted, but I'm also incredibly pissed off, stressed out, and sore/headachey. I barely got any sleep this weekend, and I guess I'm a little dehydrated, so I'm like... so tired I can't even fall asleep at this point.

End point: what do you do to calm down and get back to sleep? I just went and got some tea, and now I'm watching TV for a bit in the hopes it will cool me off.

[katzies]
Situation: I started a job earlier this year knowing that I would quit again some time soon-ish (within the next 2 or 3 years if not earlier) because my husband is in the military and military people move a lot. When they hired me they asked about this but I just said that we were intending to stay here for longer.

We're moving in January so I want to quit this job at the end of December, take my remaining paid vacation (which will cover all of December!) and have my last day around the last of November (I still have some overtime hours) - I've already prepared what I want to say (husband came down on orders out of nowhere, so sad, yadda yadda yadda) but I don't know WHEN to do it. I want to do it this week but what day? Monday to get it out of the way? Or Thursday (I'm off on Friday) so they have a day without me to deal with it? Right when I get to work or before I leave?

I never quit a job so I'm kind of nervous about this. My boss and I don't have the best relationship so I actually should be happy to just slam the letter on his table but I still feel bad.

What would you do?

Also: If you were NOT going to use the proper name (plecostomus)- you didn't know it, or didn't think the other person knew it, or you were 10- what is this fish?

feeding? I have algae wafers, they say 'do not feed more than it will eat in two hours." and that they;re nocturnal-ish, so feed later in the day. Every day? every few days? I've had my pleco about 3 days notw, and it hasn't moved from the glass at one end of the tank.

I'm going to be doing my first bouncing/security gig on Saturday.
Its for a metal band in a small venue, but I was told to expect a lot of moshing (allowed, so long as it isn't too violent) but otherwise I'll be on the look-out for people smoking and/or doing drugs.

I'll be working with a couple of fathers of the band members, but apparently they're small guys(I'm about 6'1" and 300 lbs)

They told me to try and wear a security shirt, and whatever I think I might need.

Any suggestions of what I may need?
(I'll have a cell phone and I was thinking of bringing along a couple of radios so I can coordinate with the other guys...but I'm not sure what else.)

I haven't been to a show in like 3 or 4 years and I don't really remember what security carries.

Thanks!

Just a quirky question about college/test forms:

When a test form/college application asks what language is spoken at home, what should I put if my parents speak to me in Spanish, but I reply in English? There's only one option, and putting English seems like I'm cheating myself out of an advantage, but putting Spanish seems like I'm cheating myself into one.

So. What language do we speak at home?

The Question Club

[fettered_free]
For all you cigarette smokers/ex smokers:

1. How old were you when you you started smoking and why did you start?

I started when I was 15, but only smoked socially until I was 17, and I really started up. I originally started because it was "cool". Yeah, lame, I know.

2. How old are you now, and have you quit? If so, when?

Now I'm 19... a month or so ago I made an honest attempt at quitting... but then I started again two weeks later. I'm disappointed in myself, really.

3. For those of you that have quit, how many honest attempts did you make to quit before you successfully did? How many years did you smoke?

I've only made the one attempt.

The reason I ask these is because I want to quit- I want to quit because it's too expensive and it's bad for my health... but I don't want to quit, you know? When I made my attempt, I didn't really want to quit, and I think that definetly contributed to my failure. So..

4. In order to successfully quit, do you think that one has to really want to?


Randomly... I have a blister with fluid in it on the bottom of my toe. Should I pop it?

I know I should have said something when she started calling me Joanne, but I didn't want to seem like a bitch. It's only a half year class so it's already half over, if that matters. It's just that I would feel weird saying something now considering she's been calling me Joanne for nearly a month.

[mood |confusedconfused]

Every time I go to a site in Firefox, that requires Quicktime, it doesn't work, and it tells me to "manually install it". But I HAVE Quicktime.

I'm running Firefox 1.0.7 and Quicktime 7.0.3. What gives??
