Do you notice when people dont walk on the correct side? (relative to whichever side is the "right" side for you?)

Ive never noticed it before I moved to utah for school, but every morning I wind up walking into someone and getting weird looks ...hello! Walk on your damn right! especially in stairwells. entire classes will just walk down taking the entire stairwell up so that the people trying to get up it cant. its frustrating

I've posted a little while back about what to plant after I moved into a new apartment with a balcony.

These are some plants I'm thinking about planting. The ones with question marks I'm not sure about. Maybe you can sway me to plant or not.

Herbs:
Parsley
Chamomile
Sage
Basil
Dill
Mint
Thyme?
Chives?
Oregano?
Rosemary?
Lavender?

Veggies:
Cherry tomatoes (suggest a type?)
Carrots (littlefinger?)
Lettuce
Cucumbers
Spinach
Maybe others? Not sure yet

Flowers:
Snapdragons
Morning Glory
Forget me Not
Viola
Coreopsis

Anyway, my questions are - which ones would you recommend and which ones would you recommend against, and why?

I would like to grow all my herbs in one big box - what should the size of the box me (in depth, in width, and in length)? How much soil should I put in it? And would the herbs grow allright together? How much space should I put between eachh herb? Also, if I just take a platic container and poke hole in the bottom, would that be okay? Do I need to put anything in it besides the soil in the box?

How big of containers/pots do you think the vegetables and flowers need? Are there veggies/flowers I can grow in the same pot (and which I shouldn't)? If so how big would I need it?


Or, if anyone has any sites that detail growing instructions on growing any of the previous plants, that would be greatly helpful too.


As a reminder, I live in San Antonio, TX.

Is there a way to bring up past IM's on the AOL Messenger?



I let my thirteen year old cousin come over and use my AOL screen name yesterday and when I used it later I found a lot of sites about where and how to get abortions in the History. She insists she was IMing her friends on my screen name and they sent her the links and she didn't know what they were before she clicked. However I know she's lied about things before and I'd like to just peek at the IMs to be sure. Maybe theres a log file somewhere?

REALLY bad day at work.

So my boyfriend is an OM for two radio stations...and they got their ratings in today, and it was some of the worst he's ever seen. He's not (obviously) really happy about it. I work part time in the building, but not for him. I feel terrible that it happend. I don't know what to do for him though...any suggestions? This is pretty heavy--if it happens next book, then his job could really hinge on it. So this is pretty major.

Okay it seems to have been pretty well established that my ex boyfriend accessed my LJ to see if I had written anything private about him (I had). What I am trying to figure out now is whether he is trying to get into my email as well.

I've been changing all my passwords to everything. Soon after I changed my password for my email, I received 2 emails stating that I had requested to reset my password by email (I had not). I wasn't having any problem getting on my email from my laptop, but I tried from my desktop at home and it said that I had tried too many times to get into my account or that someone was trying to get into my account. I was confused, because I'd had no problems with my laptop, and I know for certain that nothing had happened at home since only my parents are there and they have absolutely no reason to try and access my email. So, my question is, if someone from a different computer tries to access my account and is unsuccessful enough times for hotmail to get suspicious (so to speak), will that show up on every computer I try to access my email from or just the computer where all the unsucessful attempts had occurred? (If so it must have happened in the interim from the last time I had checked my email on my laptop and when I checked it with the desktop.)

If you're renting a house to someone and you want them to move out, do you have to have a just reason or do you just have to give them a reasonable amount of time to move out?

In another situation -- if you're in a relationship with the person you're renting from and then you break up.. The person who owns the house tells the person they have to move out within a certain amount of time -- can the person whom rents the house take it to court and say that they're only making you move out because of the relationship?

I would think that wouldn't hold up in court?

What do you think?

LJ Problem

I don't know what to do anymore. Whenever I log unto Livejournal and I try to click either at my Info, Friends List or my journal itself I get the following message:

Too many redirects occurred trying to open “http://www.livejournal.com/misc/get_domain_session.bml?return=http://otohime.livejournal.com/profile”. This might occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page which then is redirected to open the original page.

It doesn't allow me to access it. I don't really understand why. If I'm not logged on then I can access everywhere in the site. In case this is of relevance I'm using a Mac and the browser is Safari.

Can anyone tell me why this is happening and what I can do about it so I could solve it? Thanks!

cartoon website

Isn't there a website that has a bunch of old cartoons from the 80's and 90's on it that you can download or watch for free? I'm trying to think of it but I can't find it.

All of a sudden, I have this urge to watch Exosquad. I haven't seen that cartoon in years.

Situation: I am a high school senior who needs a job, however, I can't find a job. I know there are some out there, as my friends are all employed, but I can seem to locate one. The local newspaper is really crappy, and based about fifty miles away, so looking in the job section is not working.

So, should I just call around [grocery stores, CVS, resturants, etc.] and say 'Hi. Are you hiring?' How would I go about this?

Any other ideas?

01. Have you ever heard of "The Game"? I agonised over asking this, but curiosity got the better of me. I find it fascinating because I'm British and managed to annoy a Canadian on my friendslist by mentioning it, and an American friend. Edit: Apparantly this has been asked recently. Sorry. :/

Edit: If it's any consolation to people who play/have been sucked into 'The Game', the page popped up on me the other day when I used the 'random search' option on Wikipedia. I'm not ashamed to say I was utterly crushed and nearly peed myself laughing.

Sometimes I'll scratch my head, and my fingernails will happen upon what totally appears(when i scratch it loose and examine it) to be a nit, as if i had lice... except i don't have lice, and haven't for a long time. I can sortof smoosh/cut it open with a fingernail, but there's not really anything to help identify it inside... just white cruddy stuff. What is that?

bay area

So I’m going to be 22 this Wednesday. My friends and I are planning to go out the weekend of the 11th to celebrate my birthday since I won't be in town this weekend. The only problem is we don’t know what to do!

I live in the Bay Area, but I just can’t think of anything fun to do. I’ve never been to a club, but I don’t feel like doing that for my birthday.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what a group of 22+ year olds can do for fun (aside from watching the Chinese New Year parade in San Francisco)?

Thank you!

And while on the topic - how long does canned food (provided the can is undamaged and unopened) actually last?

3. Does the period go inside the parenthesis or out? What about quotation marks?

diet question

About this time last year I was overweight (5'1" and 140 lbs) and I began a diet of 1200-1300 calories. This diet has really became my part of my lifestyle and if I eat over that many calories I now feel physically sick. But there's a problem, by sticking to this diet for a year I've gone down to 90 lbs (underweight). How can I gain 5-10 lbs and maintain it?

EDIT: I'm speaking more in calorie terms, how much should I be eating?

ACCUTANE

Hello... I dont know if anyone here has ever taken accutane or can help me with this question but it says that you should avoid drinking especially before a blood test. It doesnt say to absoulutly not drink it...... Im 21 so i go to the bar and drinking like at least once a week never more then saturday and sunday im not sure if that will kill me or something while taking the medication. I plan on cutting down and not drinking every weekend and only once every three weeks or something. Does anyone know what how much drinking it takes to affect you while on the medication and what it does. I think it has to do with killing your liver......but drinking period does that so i dunno.

Thanks to anyone that can help.

So in the US, it's pretty odd to give your child an adjective name like "Precious" or "Heavenly". It happens, but normally when you meet someone named that, you think "wtf? What's wrong with their parents?" But in Spanish speaking countries, it seems fairly common to name your child Bonita or Dulce (pretty/sweet, respectively). Are there any other cultures that this is accepted in?

Do you have any good tips to help me stop chewing my cuticles and skin around my nails?
It's becoming a serious and disgusting-looking problem. Blood, scabs and everything.
Actually it's not "becoming" a problem at all, it IS a problem I've had since 6th grade, when i ironically started doing this to stop biting my nails :(
Now I don't have finger prints anymore.
I fear i may go insane from trying to stop. Quitting smoking would be easier than this.

Mom tried the bitter-tasting nail polish stuff when i was a kid, i just got used to the taste.
I'm thinking that covering my fingertips in liquid Band-Aid may be my only hope.

1. i know everyone is sick of myspace questions, but this is the only place that i know of where i could get it answered quickly. someone i know added me, but on the friend request manager it shows her picture and *her name* wants to be your friend! but theres no buttons underneath. when i click to go to her profile, it just says sorry, this profile is undergoing routine maintenance. how can i fix this, or if i cant, what is causing this?

2.when youre walking in a public place and youre talking about another person, do you worry that they or someone they know will hear you? even if they live far away/there aren't many people there/youre not saying anything bad?

3. is there anything i can do to make my lymph nodes stop swelling? they hurt like a beeswax and theyre sticking out from the sides of my neck, and although im not big on making myself look pretty...its kinda bad when even i get disgusted looking in the mirror. and sleeping on my side is not comfortable at all...which is a problem because thats the only way i can fall asleep. i went to two different doctors and they said that it wasnt strep or mono, that it was just a virus and i had to wait it out.

4. i have three classes tomorrow. 830-945, 10-1115, and 230-345. this cold has made me wicked tired, and ive already fallen asleep in my 10 o clock class once, and i dont want it to happpen again. so, if it takes me about 45 mins to do the homework for each class, should i:
A. do 830/10 homework, take a shower, sleep, and do the 230 homework in between 1115 and 230?
B. do all the homework, sleep, take a shower, and nap in the break?
C. do 830/10 homework, sleep, and do the 230 homework and the shower during the break? (this means not much time will be spent on either, since i have to eat in there too)
