How do you wash them without the paint coming off or the shirts shrinking or causing some kind of clothes disaster?
2. How often do you wear shorts?

Yes! It was about if negative calories really exist.
My dad has to wake up at 4:30 this morning to go to work and I want to make him breakfast because I'm going to be up anyway.
I wonder if you can really find a job b/c nowadays so many people major in computer science at 4-years schools.
What about programs like this, but for other types of jobs? The local community college offers prgrams in medical transcription, horitculture, etc.
do you take vitamins?
do you keep any toiletry items at work (deodorant, mouth wash, etc)?
do you have any pets? pix pls.
Soooo.. does this mean someone forgot about my package?
i'm looking for the kanji (japanese character) for sister, specifically, "little sister." it is important that it be a JAPANESE character and not chinese, and as i'm getting this as a tattoo, it goes without saying that i need the source to be credible (i.e. not some random blog found via google). anyone that can help me or aid in my search? it would be appreciated, i've had a hard time finding it so far. search engines provide little to no help. :(
Which Eddie Izzard DVD is best?

Seriously, that's all it says. The product looks like a tube of chapstick.
What is it, and what is it supposed to do?
1. When you get a pimple do you pop it?

2. What would you recommend from this menu: http://www.theslowboat.com/SBFrameset-1.htm ?
My colleague at work is inviting us to celebrate his birthday at a chinese restaurant but I've never had it before. I don't want to say no because I don't like anything on the menu.
I just got a renewal notice in the mail - "Renew now and save $$$" My subscription doesn't expire until February of '07. That's over 6 months away! What's that all about?
Fed's delicate balance may be at tipping point
For many years now, the Federal Reserve has used monetary policy to balance inflation and economic growth, but this article is wondering if the continual boosting of interest rates is going too far.
When I took economics, I remember there being two major ways that the government could affect the economy - one being monetory policy (controlling the availability of money in the marketplace through interest rate adjustments), with the other being fiscal policy (adjusting federal spending to boost or slow the economy.)
Monetary policy seems to be simple in concept. The rate of economic growth moves the opposite direction of interest rates. Inflation a problem? Boost them a bit. Recession? Loosen the purse strings. It takes cautious adjustment of the rates to make this effective, but Greenspan seemed to have this down to a science (albeit the dismal one.)
Fiscal policy is also fundamentally simple. If the government spends more, the economy speeds up. Spend less, and it slows down. (Though the latter seems rarely used.) Deficit spending was used as a tool of fiscal policy, as in the New Deal. But increasing federal spending has an inherent inflationary effect, by injecting more money into the economy. Incurring deficits to fund that increased spending has the additional effect of creating upward pressure on interest rates, as the government borrows on the open market (by selling Treasury bills, notes and bonds) and has to pay interest on that borrowing.
It is beginning to seem that monetary policy is no longer able to readily hold inflation in check against the inflationary pressures of the federal deficit. The media talks about the Fed and interest rates, and mentions the deficit (and occasionally the national debt). But why is there no coverage of the effect that deficit spending has on the economy?
[And one more add-on question - do you find the above to be exceedingly nerdy?]
THEN I saw these really cool smart phones! And I went and talked to Cingular about getting one, because I have to get a new phone and plan when I go to college anyways because my mom isn't keeping the plan I'm on, and it expires in September. SO, I went and asked them about it, like if they did contracts with freshly acquired 18-year-old-isms. They said yes, but I would have to have like a $500 deposit, or get credit somehow.
So my question is:
How do I get credit so that I can start my own phone plan? Also, Is there any reliable source that will do a credit card for 18 year olds that won't screw me over?
i'm trying to call someone in the uk from the us. now, to call london, i usually dial 011 44 20 +and 8-digit number.
but now i'm trying to call 07736*6*57* and i have no freaking clue what to dial. i'm assuming i dial the 011 and 44, but do i just dial the 07736...... after that?
if you could answer this within the next few minutes, i'll love you forever. and, yes, i tried googling.
edit! and i just called 011 44 20 7736..... aaaand probably interrupted some pleasant man's dinner
and for the follow-up......

also, is this really supposed to be worse than the flood of 72? and if so, how long do you think it would take for like, kingston to get back to normal?
what are your thoughts on it? is it a good lens for the low price or is it not worth it?
If yes, why do you keep them?
Have you ever written something in your lj that was read by someone who definitely should not have seen it?
Mine is Red Robin.

3.) When's the last time you were able to log onto AIM?
4.) If there were a person at work who kept to themselves and didn't really go out of their way to talk to anybody, but every time they did interact with you they were always very polite and nice, would you think they were stuck up or just shy?
5.) a.) What's the most angry you've ever been with anyone?
b.) What's the happiest anyone's ever made you?
6.) I'm assuming that most everyone has packed up an apartment/house and had to move before. Did you have a system or did you just go room by room?
7.) This is a longshot, and I'm really just curious, but do you know anybody from Channahon, Illinois?
I'm going to take them separate terms (Winter and Spring). I have to take them for my bachelors degree I'm working towards, I just wonder which would be better to take first.
How many of you are taking Summer classes? How many classes?
I'm taking: sociology, speech, accounting 2.
What's something unique about you that's interesting to tell others?
I have to do a 2 1/2 to 3 minute speech about that tomorrow and I honestly have nothing interesting to say about me. I can't even remember the last exciting thing that happened TO me.
The top joints of my middle fingers are bent outward, I have a spot on my forehead where my skull didn't fuse all the way (sort of like a fault line, but on your skull, and I can feel the dent), and I have a retroverted uterus, which is pretty common but still kinda bizarre. I guess.
+5 for pictures!

Does your state sell fireworks? If not, do you still buy them? Where do you buy them?
What is your favorite type of firework?
My question is: How much do we pay this kid? I'm not sure how old he/she is, but I do know that they LOVE animals. It would not be much work, just checking in on kitty and feeding him every couple of days. Maybe playing with him or petting him a little, if he's not hiding under a chair... No messy stuff like emptying the litter box or anything like that. I want to make sure to pay them something fair but in line with the light amount of work it will be. And I know that $20 to an 8-year old is a lot different than $20 to a 16-year old. I was thinking maybe $30 or $40? What do you think?
Have you ever used OCM (oil cleansing method)? How would you react if someone you knew told you they were cleaning their face with oil?
Sorry if this has been asked a billion times, used ljseek and couldn't find it: what the fuck is up with the TQC Awards?
Which is better, The Devil Wears Prada or The Nanny Diaries? Which will make a better movie?
What can someone do at the gym to intimidate the heck out of you?
For me, it's running on the treadmill at full incline. That is hard.
(I tried Google, but I suck at Internet research.)
What's the best way to take advantage of this universal oversight?
Usually, I don't mind them even though they're weird, but the one's I HATE are when I have to pee and cannot find a toilet. Ill find bathrooms, but they'll all be very Brady with no toilet.
What kind of dreams- other than the obvious "scary" ones- do you hate??
I can understand the lure for kids, sure, but Disney weddings? Mickey Mouse lingerie?
Would you rather have cheese or chocolate fondue?
Was Star Jones forced off of the View, or did she betray Barbara Walters?
Did Michael Jackson sexually molest any boy (either from the 1991 case or the 2005 case)?
Did Robert Blake kill his wife?
Whatever happened to Jimmy Hoffa?
What is your favorite piece of jewelry?
Has anyone ever worked at a dollar store, dry cleaners, or pet store? How was it? Would you suggest it for a summer job?
Also, in my school, 9/10 grade are world lit classes, 11th grade = American lit, and 12th grade = British lit.
And...in the movie Signs, Mel Gibson plays some kind of religious leader, but I'm confused as to what denomination he's a part of. He's referred to as "Father" and a couple people confess to him about their sins, but he has children. Is there another denomination besides Catholocism that calls their preachers "Father" and does confession? I know Catholocism doesn't allow priests to have children or a wife (unless they've been called after they've married).
How do I go about this?
Does it cost money?
Does it take a long time for the authorities to process this?
For anyone who has changed their name, what reactions/difficulties have you had since changing?
If it helps, I live in Australia.
What song(s) do you hate so much that it fills with you a burning rage every time you hear it?
For me it's the following:
"Walking On Sunshine," "Butterfly Kisses," "Cat Scratch Fever," (or just Ted Nugent in general), any of the whiny emo artists, and pretty much anything by Barry Manilow/James Taylor.
edit: Also "God Must Have Spent A Little More Time On You." The N*Sync version. Actually, any version.
I just want some event ideas. I'm thinking the Holocaust and either making a something with tape or sculpting many small ugly, dead, depressed people...not sure.
But please give suggestions for a good event/thing?
So, how do you de-flea 3 cats and an entire house? The weather has been pretty hot here lately, and the fleas are getting worse.
(We've washed the cats w/ flea shampoo and used some anti-flea powder on the carpets and some of the furniture already. We have a flea treatment to put on the cats, but we're not sure we can do that so soon after the shampoo. Help!)
Would you feel this created a 'sexually hostile working environment'?
I never really thought about it, but a friend of mine used the staff bathroom last week and thought I should be really offended by the magazines.
2) What's your favorite version of "All of Me?"
3) Should I call in sick tomorrow?
What kind of food is it? Is it pricey? Do they have drink specials? Which location in Vancouver should we go to?
Uh.... is this bad? like, zomg don't you know not to give cats milk sort of bad? or just kinda-bad-can-still-use-it-for-a-treat bad? (apparently a standard cat treat is about the cat equivalent of a snickers bar, in terms of nutrition/fat....?)
Spin and Play
except it keeps kicking me out because I've used all my free time.
Codes? Cracks? Help!
Specifically, your job is to get as many school-goers from the locality involved in competitive debating.
As well as this, you have to enthuse all the incoming freshmen into assisting you in this.
What would you write in a short article to encourage these freshers, who may have no experience debating themselves, to assist in the schools program.
Entirely theoretically, of course.
ie: email, txt, call, or IM a person a few rooms or feet away
Where should I start? What are the chances of finding a pattern? What are some non-shiny material fabrics I should use?
My sewing experience is...shall we say...limited. I can handstitch hems and buttons, and don't recall using a sewing machine in the last ten years. I'm mostly hopeless.
I'm itching to start on my project! Any advice, question club dressmakers?

If yes, which ones? Why these?
If not, why not?
