Could someone give me the chinese-in-english-letters equivalent of "Look, I'm sure your job blows, so I'm not going to be mean to you, but knock it off." ?
2) My computer has decided it will only let me use 1 IE browser at a time -- When I try to open a 2nd or 3rd, they just merge with the 1st.
I didn't change any settings for it to do this, so why is it doing this & how do I fix it -- I'm the type of person who normally has 5 or 6 browsers open at any given time!
my friend's ex has had a gf for around a year or so now... but he still calls my friend. and he told her "you know you're my first love and i will always have feelings for you."
do you guys still have feelings for your first love?
He said (direct quote):
"I've been looking for a not so sappy love song that fits for the last hour, and I can't find one. It can't include the word girl, and it can't be sappy 'I love you I love you I love you'."
(FYI - the second half of that is what "fits", as between the first and second sentence I asked "What 'fits'?")
I told him I'd ask here for him, so what do you suggest?
the problem is that i downloaded one that's RUINING MY LIFE.
it sucks. i don't know what to do.
so my question is.. how the hell do i get rid of it?
Did you have any luck with it? Would you say it was worth it?
I'm asking because I'm considering using one. Any answers appreciated. :)
Do Americans have an "American accent" to other English-speaking countries? Is it funny to mimic our "accent" like we do all the time with other accents?
So my friend John told me he would make me a mix a few weeks ago. The past few times I've seen him, I've asked him if he's made it yet. When I ask him he says, "No...no I haven't, and if you've ever seen the movie High Fidelity, you'd understand." I said, "Well, I haven't...so what's that supposed to mean?" And he changes the subject.
Why don't I rent it and watch it, and figure out what that's supposed to mean myself? Well, for one I don't have alot of time to watch movies. And I believe I rented that movie last summer, and I fell asleep within the first 20 minutes both times I tried to watch it, haha.
So for those of you who have seen it...why haven't I gotten my mix yet?

My Mom works at a local animal shelter and needs to make posters for "Animal Awareness", I told her of how much talent is on Livejournal for people with graphic design and she asked me to request two posts for animal awareness. They don't have to be perfect and it doesn't have to be much because she's printing them off and doesn't want them to have a lot of color but she does want some color. She wants them the size of a regular piece of paper. You will be credited on their website. Does anyone want to do any? If there is more than one contributor than she will take them all and also credit all.
Thanks in Advance, it would really help her out.
I'm living there to go to law school, and I remember hearing that when you live in dorms (and are still considered dependents to your folks) that their homeowner's insurance will insure a number of your personal effects. Is this any different? Does it make a difference that my father co-signed my lease?
This whole growing up and being responsible thing is too friggin' complicated.

Just downloaded it, try to get my first bunch of files... They're supposed to be huge in the end, but end us as 0 bytes. OK, read some FAQs, I restart, delete any evidence of those torrents.
And then try to redownload. And it's telling me I can't as "this torrent is already running." There's 0KB/s upload and 0KB/s download.
Either tell me that secretly, those 0 byte files will blossom into several meg files, or... help? Please?
(This is also my second time installing bittorent, and the second time this has happened. I have come to the conclusion that I Really do Not Get This Program.)
So, I'm going to try to summarize this in a semi-reasonable length.
Last December, I gave my notice at a job I had been with for 6 years and loved very much. I had been offered a position at another firm (I didn't go looking, they found me), and was intrigued, so I figured I had to take the plunge. It was one of the most difficult decisions I'd ever made professionally - possibly personal as well - and I've grown to realize it was a huge mistake. lol No regrets mind you - had I not jumped, I would have wondered, you know?
At any rate, I left on excellent terms with all my coworkers there, and have remained in friendly contact with more than a few of them. During a friendly email exchange earlier this week, I casually mentioned that I was probably going to begin scouting for another opportunity soon. My friend (who also hired me first off those 6 years ago and is a Senior Vice President), replied right back and said "I think we would all love to have you back here. I'll talk to (insert name of head haunchos here)". This took me way off guard - I hadn't even thought that that would be a possibility, but I jumped right away and would be elated to get back there. I replied thanking her and sent her my updated resume. This was on Monday.
I haven't heard anything back yet, and I'm sitting on pins and needles. I know I'm being over anxious for more than a few reasons - for all I know, they could be trying to find out where to put me or how to work it, or they just might not be interested, who knows... but either way I would really love to know!
So finally - here's my question... I have had a couple of other opportunities sprout up recently. My old company has precedence, no doubt, but I don't want to seem pushy. I was thinking of emailing her back, perhaps tomorrow, just to see if she'd perhaps had the chance to talk to the powers that be yet about any possibilities there... what do you all think? What's the best way to approach this?
Many thanks in advance, and sorry for the length! *blush* lol
Have you ever found a cartoon character sexy or hot? If so, which one?
my favorite is one from a few years ago that was like "there is a ticklebear on the loose!" and then a tickle bear attacks a guy. there was also one where there was like a sock puppet dog that was pretty funny.
OH! and the wes anderson amex.
what is your least favorite commercial?
i dont really like those vonage ones, and i hated the WAAAZZZZUPPP ones from years ago.
Of course, I waited until the last minute to get her anything for graduation. I found a cute recipe book at the bookstore, but I want to get her something more. So I was thinking...
Maybe I would take her to lunch one day over at the CIA in St Helena. Good idea or no?

Should I call her in hopes that she hasn't called my insurance company yet? It would be a million times better to settle this without going through our insurance. It's my fathers insurance and he has never had any fault in an accident. He's only been the driver in one in the past 40 years ad someone ran into him. I don't want his car insurance to triple because I hit someone going 8 miles an hour. He thinks she's going to sue us for all sorts of things, especially when he found out she was Chinese because of the stereotype I guess.
She said she would call tonight.
Since then, a receptionist temp-to-perm job has been obtained with an absolutely huge manufacturing company - starting next week, so...I basically have this weekend to buy an entirely wardrobe that actually fits the business casual dresscode. I've been putting off buying new clothes because I didn't have the money to do so and also I kind of hate shopping, so getting the job is kind of a kick in the ass (and of course it also will bring the money I need with it!).
The one problem is that I'm completely clueless. Hours upon hours of watching What Not to Wear have given me an idea of what not to wear, but I don't really know what *to* wear, except the vague rules like "nothing sleeveless, not too tight, not too loose." I don't have any idea how to put together outfits! I've googled around a bit, but I really need some advice from real people!
Here's a picture of me. It also sums up pretty much my whole wardrobe (jeans, tanktops, and sandals/running shoes). I have a tough time shopping because I'm petite (5'4), but I have curves (and boobs). I have really narrow feet and had foot problems growing up, so I won't do high heels, and I'm also trying to avoid leather/fabrics that come from animals.
Please help me,thequestionclub! What kind of business-casual outfits would you dress me up in?
(edit: I should probably also mention that I know nothing about makeup, and that I'm in Toronto in case anyone has store recommendations!)
Today I went laptop shopping at Best Buy and I found a great price on this Toshiba satellite-- it's just $1149 at my local store until Saturday. It has an Intel® Core™ Duo processor T2400 (1.83 GHz), 120 gigs of hard drive space, and a gig of RAM.
But while I was shopping I got a crush on this Sony VAIO, which would normally just be $100 more expensive but because of the sale costs $250 more than the Toshiba. The Sony only has 100 gigs of hard drive space, and the Duo processor is T2300 (1.66 GHz), and it also has a gig of RAM. The good news is that I found it on sale on J&R for just $1249, so the price difference is just $100 more once again, but the downside of that is that it won't be here this weekend when my computer genius friend was going to help me set it up.
So the question is (and congratulations for making it this far!!!) convince me that it is or isn't worth the extra $100 for the Sony over the Toshiba. The PRO is that it the Sony is WAY cuter, the CON is that it has the slower processor and 20 gigs less of
Also, can anyone figure out whether the Sony has its RAM in one stick of 1 gig or two sticks of 512? That would be worth the extra $100 to me. Oh and I'm going abroad to Spain next semester, so if anyone knows anything about support overseas options, let me know please.
Love and kisses, thanks so much.
EDIT: I think right now I would be too depressed/overwhelmed to consider other brands, let's try to focus on just these two maybe...

I've noticed some debate over how to handle unsigned credit cards in a few communities, and I'm wondering if anyone can give me a straight answer . . .
Assuming you do ask for ID, what are you supposed to look for? The way my register works, I don't see the name until after the card has been processed, thus rendering it useless if the name on the ID doesn't match. All a photo ID proves is that the person, well . . . has a photo ID.
If the signature doesn't match the one on the card, what do I do? I've heard that it may be a joint account, thus one person could sign for the other. I did have a guy come up and sign, then I noticed on the slip there was a woman's name . . .
Thanks, I really hope I'm not asking a totally stupid question here . . .
I am a disabled Mom on SSI (think, very limited income). I have three kids. 8-9-10.
Lately I have become 'the house' to be at with all the neighborhood kids. We have cable, Yu-gi-oh cards, Gameboys, nintendo ds, air conditioning, and snacks.
That is where my question comes in.
I can start making some semi-healthy snacks for the kids. Granola, peanut butter cookies, ice pops, smoothies. However, it is going to cost me (not as much as store bought crap, but still...)
So, what would you do? Be the nice Mom on the block who always has snacks and bottled water or be the practical Mom who says "Go home and have a snack, then come back".
Being the nice Mom would cost me about 30-40 a month in snack food. That is if I make the snack food. I could fit it into my budget and chalk it up to entertainment expenses. We would eat out a lot less (two meals worth) but that is a fair trade off.
In trade I get to be "The Mom" to about 6-7 extra kids each day, and when I need help with something, I always have a willing kid around to do it.
I have already practically adopted one of the kids, he is here in the morning first thing and doesn't leave until later afternoon early evening when the kids are home. When they are home, he is here. He has eaten dinner with us many times this week, as well as lunch, snacks, water bottles. He is so free to do whatever in my house, he gets his snacks without asking and just walks in when he gets here. LOL
What do you think? Rein in the giving tree, or go ahead and feed the neighborhood?
2. Are Elvis impersonators as plentiful in Las Vegas as I imagine them to be? In my mind, they wander the streets, an Elvis in every crowd.
3. Can you reccomend a good work-out DVD? I'm also interested in Pilates, but there are so many different Pilates DVDs that I have no idea which one I should get.
I am looking for a free program to download that will help me create brochures. Something with a tri-fold layout that I can print at home.
Does anyone have a suggestion for a free program to help with this?
my answer; graduation & realizing that the people you've spent the past 4 years with (whom you partied w/, celebrated sweet 16s, considered your best friends), you could care less about, but the people that you've been in a couple of classes w/ and never really hung out w/ on the weekends, you'll want to stay in touch w/ the most.

2. How do I back out of a lunch invitation that I already accepted? Short version of the story, I was invited out to lunch with a small group from work and one person we used to work with. The original group was all people I liked. Now there are a few people I don't like, and the restaurant has changed. I don't care for the restaurant or the group now, and since money is extremely tight, I don't think it's worth the money now if I'm not going to enjoy myself. How do I get out of this (it's tomorrow) without insulting anyone?
3. How do I go about asking my boss if I can shift my schedule around some in the fall? ( Collapse )

for me i've always had mixed opinions. i like skirts. they're cute and they do show off your legs. i do believe that it's possible to show off too much leg and make it utterly impossible to sit, squat, or bend over without the world seeing your naughty parts. i always feel like when i try to wear one of these that i have to constantly keep my legs clamped tightly together but i have a short attention span. i shift in my seat often enough if i've been sitting down for at least 15 minutes. i don't think they're classy at all. i do however think they look great when showing off curves and nice legs but in the real world when a woman is in public dressed like this, she's showing at least the male population that it's very probable she's a little trashy. she may not actually be, but she's sending the wrong message. i'd love to wear one but i refuse to because i don't want that kind of attention. i think you can dress sexy without including one of those in the wardrobe.
i was always curious as to what people's opinions are. so if you've got them, that'd be great :)

I'm really digging on StumbleUpon. It cures your boredom! You sign up for an account, and you can choose all your favorite interests. There's a button on a toolbar that says "Stumble!", you click that and it chooses a website that comes recommended. You can give a thumbs up or a thumbs down on a page- and it will refine the search of what pages to show you based upon what you said you liked and didn't like. It's so freaking neat... I've already read about the history of lobotomy, a bunch of different articles about Alexander Shulgin, and lots of other neat stuff. I love this thing. Everyone should download this and give it a try.
I have a 20-inch silver TV... cost like $90 at Best Buy.

I love the Real World-Road Rules series.
3. What jewelry, if any, are you wearing right now?
none, but I have both ears pierced twice... I'm just not wearing anything right now.
4. What do you think about war movies (ie. "The Patriot," "GI Jane," etc. etc.)
I generally am biased against t hem.... but they're actually not too bad once given a chance.
5. What kind of house do you live in? (dorm, mobile home, apartment on the 8th floor, ranch-style home, etc.?)
I live in a trailer park, but I don't fit the stereotypical "trailer trash" image.
6. What are you doing for your father this Father's Day?
Probably just a simple card... I haven't been on "good terms" with my dad for years.
I go to college full time and I just got promoted to assistant manager at my work. I skipped out on the manager job b/c I didn't think I could handle that and school, but this will still be lots of hours starting very early in the morning, plus classes til late at night, plus keeping up a 3-year relationship. I also tend to get stressed easily, and need my sleep. So how do you guys deal with the work load?
Not in people's houses. I looked in the one in the female staff bathroom at my school today and I found expired condoms, now I keep wondering which teachers are having sex in school.

What new game should I get?
OMG. ALSO. WHY DID IT NEVER OCCUR TO ME TO ASK THIS!?@!!
VIDEO GAMERS, I NEED YOUR HELP:
I have Tony Hawk's Underground but I haven't played it in a long time because I can't get past that fucking bridge. So, I'm supposed to hang on the back of the car and then WOOPLAH jump over the thing but that proved to be quite a challenge. Every now and then, I go back and try it. And I'll spend forever trying to jump the bridge and then get frustrated and leave the game alone for a while. I'm a serious gamer, I know my shit, WHY IS THIS SO HARD FOR ME TO DO? Can somebody explain how they got over the bridge? Or, better yet, come to my house and do it for me? I want to beat the rest of the game already.
It's super expensive.
Is it worth it?
