2:What's the best book you've ever found?
3:What's the most recent book you've read?
Can you recommend me...
1: A good meaningful read
3:Another good dog oriented book (I just finished Marley and Me a couple of days ago)
What is the song playing in the background of this?
Thanks for any help.
How about Crystal Pepsi and Pepsi Blue? (I do!)
Umm.....what's up with the whole "snakes on a plane" thing? Is there some movie or something I'm missing out on?
*I know people ask questions related to tipping kind of often, but I'm just curious about what y'all think about this.
** See comment number 1 for why I'm asking this question.
I'm not very handy, and I don't want to pay to get it custom made. Anyone know of any manufacturers?
Also, it would be okay if it didn't have a hidden area if it did have a sturdy lock on it. But I'd prefer to hide it, I love acting like a spy! :D
do you think to yourself 'what?? why the hell are you attracted to me?'
i do... alot.
2)If you did hire a nanny, would you ever put a camera in your house to make sure that the nanny is doing everything correctly??
3)If you are a nanny, would you be mad if you found out that the family you worked for had a secret camera in their house?
I'm asking because I'm a nanny and I think that my boss has a camera in her house. I don't really care, I have nothing to hide. I'm just curious if people feel the same way as me.
2. Are there any stores that sell air conditioners, and beds (mattresses/boxsprings/everything) that let you buy now and pay later?
My class hasn't thought of anything, and I was watching the High School Confidential show on MTV2.
We want something cool to do.
Just throw out suggestions.
thank you. :)
What do people think? Can you offer another explanation/interpretation of their actions?
My Friend-Who-Is-English says I should move to England instead. He points out that this winter he was here(Iowa), he saw more snow than he'd seen before in his entire life- And Canada is even further north. I said that the coastal cities were warmer, he rebutted that pretty much all of England counts as a coastal area.
I said he just wants me to move to England because he wants in my pants. He said that while that is true, there are other reasons.
So! what do you guys think?
healthcare, politics/corruption, liberal/conservatism(he says England's conservatives are kindof like our moderates), general existence of rampaging asshats, weather, etc?
Random: I want to be a copy editor(read: newspaper proofreader), which is somewhat relevant, but also brings up a language question.
People here in US say "X is different than y" and it drives me nuts becuase it's different FROM. English people say "X is different to y".... that's not like zee/zed where it's actually correct over there, is it?
We buy all our food from the Queen Victoria Market which is one of the largest markets in Australia, so we can get pretty much any weird ingredient we need!
So my question is... what is your favourite meal (to eat and/or cook)? I need suggestions!! We want anything from stock-standard meals to really unique recipes. Any ideas would be awesome (and if you have a vague outline of a recipe, that would be great too, but definitely not essential).
from what generation are you?
from what generation are your parents?
do you think one generation is worse than another?
do you think one generation is better than another?
Who would you go gay for?
anyone have any good (and fairly simple) salmon recipes? i've googled, but once again, i'd like something i KNOW will turn out good... and nothing sounded too good that i found through google.
EDIT: HOW do you tell the new guy about the FWB?
Anyone know if there's anywhere I can find a list of Marines? Specifically by year from when they joined the Marines. Or by location. Thanks!
Although anyone can answer if they'd like, I'm specifically interested in those of you who have a career.
I've seen this happen to people, and it's happened to people I know, and for the most part, it tends to pick them up, as long as it's done in a non-creepy way.
Also, in the above scenario, what could someone do that might creep you out (other than really obvious things like touching you or saying something crude)?
(Edited to correct spelling. Stupid homonyms. Probably spelled that wrong too)
(Yes, I could ask on whatwasthatone, but I like you guys better. Don't you feel special?)
I have a vague memory of a book I had when I was a kid. It's the typical "new friendships, coming of age" genre, but one of the throughlines was this poem the girls were writing for the Guiness Book of World Records (longest poem ever written by kids or something). The poem was about the adventures of Barbie, and they sent the poem to Sir Alec Guiness, because hey, Guiness book, must belong to him, right? He sends it back to them , with a ntoe that he's sure it would makie a great entry in the World Records book.
Does this jog anyone's memory? At all?
EDIT: It was Stage Fright by Ann M Martin.
Where I live (in Massachusetts), we have to take our road test with a state trooper. :\
(Besides pizza, okay, everyone does that.)
Baked potato + ranch = A+
Thought you should know.
How offensive would it be to dress up as a nun and create a giant bible (for a visual) with the against side's view? If I do so, my friend is planning on dressing in heaps of rainbow garb.
Any other suggestions?
Edit: All comments are greatly appreciated :D I'd like to add that this is in no way a huge grade, and this is a very, VERY slack teacher who is pretty much at this point babysitting a class full of high school students at the very end of the year.
Also I have already done a massive research paper on the pro side.
I have changed my mind about the costume; I'm going to find something else interesting to do.
If I was sitting next to you right now, what could I do to turn you on?
This is the dress that I am wearing to my senior prom next Friday.
Do you guys think that my date would look better in:
A. A white tux with a blue vest
B. A gray suit with a blue tie?
I think that both look equally chic, but some argue that a white tux is too "Disco Fever" and that a gray suit isn't formal enough.
Thanks in advance!!
BTW: My shoes and accessories are silver, if that makes a difference
how does your/significant other's face feel?
2. How well do you handle heat? Our humidex hit 44C or something, and I'm dying.
so i just got a new ipod video and i want to alter it. i'm gonna get rockbox, but until then, i just want to fiddle with it. and i remember seeing (i believe on livejournal), a bunch of screenshots taken off video ipods that had different "now playing" screens. it looked sorta like themes. is this a firmware change, or is it simple to do? where can i get the resources to change that?
I guess my point is, is it pointless to want a certain house now... if I wont want to start paying for it until November?
What would you rather be doing right now?
Do you believe it is 92 degrees in Buffalo, NY? (and muggy as hell to boot)
Anything I could have forgotten?
-I quit the electricity
-moved telephone and internet (luckily I get this already on Monday on the new place)
-got an order that for a short time my mail comes to the new adress (anything that is still sent to the old adress)
2. What kind of purse would be appropriate for a concert? I'm going to have a floor seat about 20 rows back from the stage. I plan to buy a souvenir or two, and I also plan to stake out the tour bus(es) for autographs.
3. Has anyone bought a concert ticket from Ticketmaster recently, and have you used the service where you print the ticket out at home? If so, do you have to keep the ticket flat (as opposed to folding it a few times and putting it in your pocket)? Do your printer cartridges have to be perfectly aligned for printing out the ticket? I think our printer has had some alignment issues recently, and I don't want to print my ticket out quite yet.
4. What kind of music do you suggest for a 12+ hour car drive to Tampa? Do you have anything to share?
What do you do to pass the time?
i'm eating now. soup and iced tea, and my teeth are very sensitive.
and i had two little pieces of metal fall out of my mouth. not huge or anything, and my mom said it looked like extra stuff rather than filling that fell out.
wtf... is this normal? or okay?
1. I'm leaving this weekend for a roadtrip from south Florida to Las Vegas with my brother, what's fun to do in the car?
2. You and a person you love deeply are placed in seperate rooms with a button next to each of you. You know that you will both me killed unless one of you presses the button within 60 minutes; furthermore, the first person to press the button will save the other person, but immeadiately be killed. What do you think you would do?
Edit: I sent out all of my thank you cards. Thank you so much to everyone who responded. You were all really helpful.
I want to get them from an actual store. Mainly because I'm going to the foot doctor tomorrow and need some decent shoes to wear. I tried the West 49 website but they didn't have them (but they might have them in the store, I just haven't had time to check).
And if you have shit to say about this, keep it to yourself because I don't want to hear it. Really, save yourself the trouble and get hit by a bus instead.
2. Are any of you actually going to go see the Snakes on a Plane movie?
3. Book time! I can't go to the bookstore at this hour, so I raided my parents bookshelf. Which should I read first?
The Poisonwood Bible, Naked by David Sedaris, or Galapogos by Kurt Veonnegut?
Am I doing the right thing?
About how often does this happen to you? (Once a month, a few times a year...?)
Would you share any interesting experiences?
Say I experience deja vu, um, A LOT, I'm very intuitive and get feelings and senses and junk, and occasionally dream things that later occur or have a big meaning. What can I do to figure this stuff out? Why do I have deja vu so much? I've heard people experience it more in their youth, so maybe I'm just going through that. But as I get older it seems to develop more and more - the deja vu and intuitiveness and stuff. What does this mean? What should I do?
A friend of mine just decided he's not going to dj anymore, so he's interested in doing weird stuff with his records.
Option #1 Find a poet that interests you, research their life and analyze how his/her experiences are reflected in his/her poems.
Option #2 Contrast and compare poems by two different poets from the same time period.
Option #3 Trace a single idea or theme through two or more poems and support your interpretation with outside sources.
Considering it only has to be 3 pages and have two secondary sources, which option do you think would be easiest?
I'd planned on doing the first one and using Jenny Lewis or Sylvia Plath but it seems like option two might be easier I can't decide and I really need to get started.
We're supposed to give "anything but routine" service, but I don't want to offend anyone or talk about anything that is un-PC. I'm not politically correct in any other facet of my life, haha, so I'm not really quite sure what is and isn't PC these days.
Also, what fun or silly things do you do at your job that might be considered "unprofessional"?
Today I was walking around like I was on a catwalk, flipping my hair and doing turns. The customers got a kick out of it. Me and my coworkers also often break out into song; today it was some Cher, Journey, and the apples and bananas song.
When was the last time you couldn't get enough sleep? Did you find out why?
The past week I've been just extremely tired all the time. If I'm not doing something that requires my brain at work, I just shut down and lay back in my chair and close my eyes. It probably doesn't help that I usually take my shoes off at work. But I'm doing this everywhere. I'll get a good 6-8+ hours of sleep in the night and I wake up feeling exhausted and if I'm not at work, then I'll take a nap. My naps lately have been ranging from 2-7 hours. And if it's later in the day, like I wake up at 9pm, I'll go back to sleep for the night at 11pm and won't wake up until 7 or 8am and still be extremely exhausted. I had a 2 1/2 hour nap not even 2 hours ago and I'm ready to go back to sleep for the night.
What's on your floor?
Also I have an iPod that's apparently formatted for Windows -- does any of that matter? I am sooooooooo confused!
"Books You Should Have Read By Now"
what would they be?
(besides aloe + aspirin?)
I think I might have to have mine out, I just got strep for the 13th time, and the throat infection just isn't going away. It's like someone stuffed big, puss-soaked cotton balls in the back of my throat; pleasant, right?
Anyway, how was it? How much did they put you under?
2.) a few days ago my mom saw bill clinton walking his dog is that cool or is that cool?
3.) do you smoke? yes? no? sometimes? if yes, what do you smoke?

does anyone know how to re-install active mixer drivers on win xp?
we tried using the 'drivers,utilites, and applications' cd but it didn't work.
my mom deleted it thinking it was a new driver.
the laptop is a win xp.
