Ok, you guys know the movie Galaxy Quest? Well, I was having a discussion with one of my friends, and we've decided that Alan Rickman's character Alex would end up dating the guy who worshipped him, had that guy survived. So, we're wondering, we're not crazy, right? Someone else HAD to have had that same idea. Do you know if there's any fanfiction out there between these two? We just want to know that we're not alone in our assumptions. :-P Yeah, weird, we know.

Thanx!

So I've had real difficulty finding a job lately - as in I've been unemployed for a year now. It sucks.

I'm trying everything I can think of but nobody seems to want to hire me. A friend of mine suggested I put my CV on Monster. I do have a few questions though.

I have very little experience, and only the most basic of qualifications (Don't have Maths English and Science GCSE's, but I do have Art, Drama, History and French) I didn't go to Uni and I have nothing like an NVQ or anything like that. Would it really be worth it to put my CV up there? Has anyone in a situation similar to mine had an offer from them after putting up your CV?

If I do put my CV up there and it doesn't yield any results, what else can I do? Going back to school is NOT an option, and I've done everything I can to find a job, job center, calling up employers, visiting them and letting them have my CV, asking friends and family if there are any openings where they work - and still nothing. I don't want to be unemployed forever, so what else can I do?

So applying to college on a weekend is not helpful because no one is there to answer my questions.

Therefore, when applying to a Florida State University System University (UNF in particular) for a second bachelor's, when it asks me if I have previously attended, does it care if I attended dual enrollment in high school or does it only care if I attended as a full student?

Also, it wants to know about family members who have attended. My mother went to UWF, but did her student teaching through UNF because we moved. Her degree still says UWF. Does she count?

And why don't they just have someone around on weekends to answer my questions?

1. Did you get picked on during that "awkward adolescence" stage? I did, until I was about 16. I was incredibly awkward with my body, and uncomfortable around my peers. Due to excessively perky breasts, I was nicknamed "Daggers" and the guys would shout that out whenever I walked by. Ouch.

2. How do you handle it when people just keep sharing redundant information? For example, my roommate always complains about the same things, over and over. I've taken to not responding to her, and I'm hoping she'll get the hint that I don't care anymore.

3. Do you like sock monkeys?

4. Do you think that children are growing up faster these days? My 11 year old cousin's AIM profile is adorned with all these cheesy love quotes, and then says "Sexy Girls Have TASTE!" and stuff like "I love my girls!" I think I was still wearing dresses and playing with my American Girl Dolls when I was her age.

5. Does anyone else know the art work of Alicia Peck, www.bellamuse.com ?

1. When meeting someone for the first time, is there any action you can do that is less formal than a handshake, but less intimate than a hug? It would have to be something relatively common or straightforward, because the other person would have to know what the hell you're doing...

2. Would you say that you have a naturally 'angry' or 'happy' (etc) face? Everyone says I have a really angry-looking face when I'm really never very angry at all. I'm hoping other people have this problem because it will make me feel better. =P

Bathroom questions [Feb. 25th, 2006|12:45 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[thejoysofjess]
1. When you see that a girl has a detatchable shower head, do you automatically assume she uses it to masturbate?

I don't, because that's not what I use mine for (the apartment came with it), but I've had quite a few people tell me that they do.

2. Do you look in people's medicine cabinets or under their counters when you pee in their house?

I definitely do.

3. Do you believe in toilet seat carpet? (The kind that goes on the lid).

I don't, because I grew up with a little brother and it just became a pee carpet.

4. How many towels do you use when you shower?

I use two, one for my body and one for my hair (if I don't turban-up my hair, my body will never dry).

And 5, completely unrelated, but why do people automatically assume "They're just jealous" when someone doesn't like them? Why can't they just think "Okay, that person doesn't like me."? Or is this just some weird internet trend I've noticed?

edit: it probably has a little to do with the fact that i am a straight white female, where there aren't really any derogatory terms that can be thrown at me. i would probably get offended if someone could yell racial slurs at me, or something similar to that situation.

Burning of national flags [Feb. 25th, 2006|01:51 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[lordindra]
What do you feel about people who burn or otherwise desecrate your national flag?

IMO, the only proper circumstances are to dispose of a flag that is no longer fit for display and has no specific value as a historical artifact, and to prevent capture by an enemy. The flag is the symbol of all the nation stands for, desecrating it is like desecrating the nation itself.

That said*, at least for the US, the flag stands first and foremost for the freedoms the Constitution guarantees. To ban its desecration would be a direct assault on those freedoms, which is far worse than an attack on the symbol. Symbols are important, but what they represent is immesurably more important.

* I don't know enough about other national cultures to state any objections to laws against desecration of their flag. Citizens of other nations are free to bring such objections up.

Also, I'm carfree and I really just don't know what'd I'd do if this happens (and it's most likely going to). I ride my bike to work, but the nearest grocery store is about 10 miles away! Does anyone here ride a moped/scooter or know much about the legalities of this? Any suggestions for alternative transportation? Thanks!

My boyfriend picked up a can of pink Salmon so he could have Salmon patties. Normall he gets the small cans that are like tuna. But this tim he bought a big can (Like a normal soup can sized can) because they were out of the small ones. When I opened it, a hunk of fish came out complete with bones and skin. Now the can didn't say "whole" fish or anything. I've never bought/used canned fish before in my life. So is this something that's assumed? That you should know you're getting a hunk of raw fish instead of the tuna-like stuff?

This might sound a bit odd, but do you touch your friends often? I don't mean like groping them, but you know, hug them, walk arm-in-arm, arms around waists and that stuff? And I mean it in a completely non-homosexual way. ;)

The reason I'm curious is that I see it everywhere! Most people around me (my school, my town) - and I'm talking girls - hug all the time, kiss on the cheek. When they meet in school, when they go home, when they're leaving for the bathroom for like 5 minutes... Personally I'm not a very physical person, I don't like to have physical contact with people I don't know very very well. (Feels like I'm the only one sometimes) For example, there is a girl in my class who insists on hugging me everytime she sees me, squeezing the life out of me. Not appreciated.

Whoa, this turned out to be a ramble. But anyway, let me repeat the question: do you have physical contact with your friends often? Or are just all people around me über-friendly?

i don't want to keep this up. and i know i could just say 'get lost' but i feel bad doing that to people, even if it is over the internet. i know, i'm stoopid. :-) i'd just rather block him and pretend i fell off the earth than have messages everytime i go on myspace and see him message me with 'hi how are you? i love your hair' (which is what i get all the time!)

hope someone can help a bit!!!

thanks!!

ETA - okay i found it...but, just out of curiosity (i'll be blocking him anyways) will he know i have blocked him?

This has been bothering me for a while but I haven't really been able to make it coherent yet, but ah well. There's a movie, I think it's Disney/animated, where one of the characters walks around singing something akin to ""zoob a doop, zoob a dop, zooba do dop be bop".

I'll post to whatwasthatone if no one can think of it.

If you had to take a self portrait how would you do it? Creatively?

The only idea Ive had is to try this replicate the escher drawing, http://www.mathcurve.com/courbes3d/anamorphose/anamorphose%20escher.jpg

but I dont know if Ill be able to pull it off without the camera in the picture, even with Photoshop.

any suggestions? or ideas of what I could use as a reflective surface?

sorry for two posts in one day, they're kind of wildly different from each other.

i'm a college student and i live on campus. i recently moved across campus and out of the regular dorms and into an apartment-style room with a mini kitchen. i have a fridge (look, it's in my icon!), a sink, a stove, and an oven. i haven't really been using any of it, except the refrigerator. thanks to a clerical error somewhere within the housing department, i don't have a roommate, but i will this weekend. she has a meal plan though so her existence is kind of irrelevant.

for the past three weeks i've been ordering out or eating on campus, which is getting way too expensive because i don't have a meal plan and dinner in the dining halls is like nine bucks. so i'm going to go grocery shopping one of these days, because i'm getting paid soon.

this is my listCollapse )

health is not a major concern. i'd get some fruit but i'm allergic to a lot of fruit, so i just drink a lot of orange juice and hope i get enough vitamin C. i can't cook so meat is pretty much out of the question. and i really mean i can't cook. oh god i can't cook. trying to properly cook broccoli is going to be a really big project for me.

1) what else do i need?

2) how much do you think this will cost me? i'm in suburbs in delaware if it matters

1. Where can I find shoes/sneakers that don't have flat soles? Like something to wear for walking long distances...and for working out at a gym? I don't want to buy two separate pairs. Oh and something that's a little fashionable...not something that looks like this:





2. Is Palisades Park, NJ a nice area?

I'm switching MP3 payers from an iPod to a Phillips mp3 player. Is there a way I can import my iTunes library to Windows Media player easily? I'm trying to avoid reburning all my CDs (I have too many!), but all the files that came from CDs are all iTune files and I'm not sure if they can be converted, what do I do?

Edit: the itunes format are MPEG-4 Audio Files. Is there a way to convert those into standar mp3 files?

What commericals do you like and why?  I love PBS commericals and the Sea World commericals... I think it's because of the music.

9. So who wants to tell me why words like "penis" and "panda" are on this list of "difficult" and obscure words? And that's just the P list.. who knows what's on the others.

So I just backed up into a curb and now my back bumper has a pretty big (like from the top to bottom) crack in it. Do you have any idea how much money that would cost to fix?
