For those of you with XM radio: who do you go through, XM Radio or Sirius? Are they the same? I'm thinking of getting XM but am pretty much clueless and don't know anyone who actually has it. I'm looking at the Roady2 system.. think it's any good or are there better models?
A friend who's been craving the chance to play Sim Tower again found it online and tried to get it working. Unfortunately, it didn't. He's got Windows XP and goodness only knows what OS Sim Tower was designed to run on.
Is there some sort of emulator he can use to get it to run?
So I want to learn more about sewing - hopefully enough to be able to make custom dresses for figure skaters or prom dresses - but there aren't any schools around my area that teach anything like that.
Any suggestions on how I could go about learning this kind of thing? I took a look at JoAnns and they offer beginning sewing classes, but they aren't worth the price (I wouldn't learn anything I didn't know from home ec). Any books you can recommend? Communities? Sewing machines? Anything?
I was at a site visit at a major US companies corporate HQ last week with my school and we met with CFO of said company. After his talk, I went up and asked if they ever did MBA internships. He said no, but he'd be happy to talk jobs with me and gave me his email.
I'm not sure how to follow up with him. Obviously, by sending him an email, but I don't know what to say.
Do I address it to his first name, or last name? (very casual west coast company, but I don't want to screw up)
I would love to work for this company, and I don't care what they start me out doing.
Ay lightbulbs? Maybe I'm just frozen because I don't want to blow this.
When at a hotel, do you open the door to take the breakfast tray, or collect it from the doormat later? (Edit: I don't mean room service, I mean your choice of breakfast, which if it is offered you fill out a form for the day before.)
Do you prefer a gas or electric stove? Why? I actually like the electric stove better...but I think I'm like, the only person on the planet that does. haha. Then again, I don't really do that much cooking.
If you had trouble breathing and you took antihistamines and it helped, does that definitely mean you are allergic to something or could you still have other conditions that made you have trouble breathing..like with your heart?
I have no idea what to Google with this, so I'm asking here.
While reading responses to my previous post about finding something in my boyfriend's room while cleaning it, I was amused by the number of people asking me to say what it was I found. ;o) It wasn't as bad as you guys were thinking, probably. He told me he was getting A's and B's, but I found tests and homework from this semester telling me otherwise. I'm definitely not going to use it against him or even confront him with it, by the by. I was cleaning his room because I spend 98% of my free time in his apartment with him, and it was really grossing me out. I couldn't even find a path to my side of the bed.
On a totally different topic, I have to give up my guinea pigs tomorrow. I've had them for four years but I can't afford them, and I'm tired of my roommate bitching about the noise they make. They're in my bedroom, with the door closed, all the time, but whatever. Anyway, I'm really seriously bummed about it.
Have you ever had to give up a pet to a rescue because you couldn't take care of them anymore? How did you cope? :o(
It's the never-ending saga that's my DVD project!!
Anyway, is there someplace I can go to find a picture of the paper insert of a DVD case, specifically Little Shop of Horrors? I'm kind of doing this blindly, since I don't have the DVD or video. So far, all I've found are movie posters and the front of the DVD/video case. It would be immensely helpful to be able to see the back of it. :)
Why do I owe 600 dollars in taxes? I didn't change jobs or move or get married or anything like that. I got a refund last year with the exact same job and I didn't change anything on my W 4 form. I don't have any investments or any new income, no new gifts, no real income at all besides my job which has not changed. I don't really make very much money. How could someone have so grossly miscalculated how much to take out? I don't understand.
I'm trying to do an analysis for my English class on Act II Scene 1 of Shakespeare's Othello. However, I don't understand his wacky language at all. I've found a few sites that offer summaries of each scene but I'm looking for something that actually translates it so I can understand what he's saying and then analyze it from there. Preferably a website that I won't have to download the translation. I have enough crap on the computer, I don't need anymore lol... thanks in advance for any help.
I need some advice. I'm dating this girl and she is really great. She's pretty much perfect for me. We have a lot in common too and we're really comfortable with each other. The only problem is that whenever we talk somehow our conversation seems to turn into her talking about how great I am. I know she really likes me and that's awesome and I don't mind her complimenting me, but I just don't want that to be all our conversations are about. I want to learn more about this girl, but I'm kind of running out of questions to ask and she almost always seems to change the subject to me.
My question is this...how do I nicely tell her or hint to her that I don't want to just talk about how great I am? I don't want her to feel like she can never say anything nice about me because it's fine just not all the time.
Okay, I'm at a friend's house and we're going to watch some shows that she has on a cd, so they can be played on her computer, but not on her TV. Given what she has- just your standard computer stuff and also ps2 and gamecube cables, if those could come in handy, would it be possible to hook her TV up to her computer? Or would we need some sort of special connector that we likely don't have?
edit: I was reading in "Uncle John's Bathroom Reader" and it said something about crayfish and crawfish being the same thing, with the same word origin, but I was like... "What about crawdad?? I always call them crawdads!"
I'm in the mood to wallow in sadness. What are so good sad books you'd recommend? I just read Susan Minot's "Evening" for the second time, and I'm reading Murakami's "Norwegian Wood" again too. Both of these involve lost/unrequited love. I'm looking for books that are well written and made you weepy.
1) Did you go to your high school senior prom? - a) Yes: Did you enjoy/hate it? Did it live up to your personal expectations? Was it anyway close to what society defines prom to be? - b) No: Why didn't you go? Any regrets of not going?
I have an account with Sprint and I have an Sanyo 2300 (I believe) Anyway, my brother is with nextel and he just got a new phone so his old one isnt being used. Its an Motorola i836 so, since Nextel and Sprint merged is it possible for them to activate the Motorola for my account, essentially switching phones?
What product would you reccomend for hair that's been over dyed/processed?
( to make it feel healthier because I need to dye it AGAIN and I wanna make it feel better so it doesn't fall out. also it isn't an option not to dye it. I need my hair a nat. colour for a picture my Mom wants taken before my Grandma looses her hair from kemo. )
when did you get married? why? what made you go "i want to get married!"

i'm only asking because i've been dating my guy three years. we moved in only one year ago. we don't want kids. our families know and are okay with it but have been bugging us about when we're going to get married recently. however my boyfriend's grandpa also recently passed away. have you had something like this happen to you?
I was laying in bed assigning astrological signs to the characters of Winnie The Pooh (don't ask...long night). Anyway, this is what I have so far: Eeyore- Cancer Tigger - Gemini Roo - Libra Piglet - Virgo then I got stumped on the bear himself... What sign would you consider Winnie the Pooh?
