all theories welcome, especially serious, selacious and tasteless ones.

Help me out with this:
What is called when employees need to keep track of what they do for how long during every minute of their working hours? IE: "I spent two hours between 9AM and 11AM playing Solitaire. I spent three hours between 11AM and 2PM reorganizing my paperwork. I spent one hour between 2PM and 3PM cleaning my office..." blah blah blah.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about? What is this called? Is there a program designed to organize this?
Edit: Thank you everyone!

me bneing an IDIOT forgot to pay and now the price has gone up to 344. Any chance it will go back down? The trip is for august 16 to dec 18. Any chance it might go on a 4th of july sale or something? Im so horribly upset, i alrerady told everyone i had booked my ticket (at 288!!!), and now it goes up!!!
It's been years since I've drank, consequently, it's been years since I've been hungover...
Stomach acid is what I've been throwing up...saltines, are they good? Nibble on those? How about water or ibuprofen? (no asprin in the house)
This is basically a "god I'm dead sick what do I do?" post...
I have a Canon Powershot A520 and the bit that covers the lens when I turn the power off (sorry, I don't know what it's called) won't iris shut completely, meaning condensation forms on the lens if I keep the camera in my pocket. How can I repair this myself? I have a feeling that if I go to a camera repair place, they'll charge me enough for a new camera...
Whats the easyest way to wash and scrub down a fridge. its 77 here and probably about 60-70% humidity, do I unplug the fridge and let it get to room temp, and then proced to scrub it? or what? the fridge is nearly empty save for ice bottles for the ferret, and ice cream. I might be able to fight that stuff in the mini fridge.
1. Why is a city cat better than a country cat?
2. Ever dream something racist/clearly offensive?
3. What were the rest of my questions?
[edited! I remembered one!]
4. Do you like to hear about the dreams other people have?
Let's say that I need to somehow earn $200 in a month. I just got laid off, but no problem because I'm starting college in two months and was going to have to leave in a month anyhow. Now, my question is: can you get a job that will only hire you for a month or two knowing that you'll be leaving? And can you get it in the off-season? (i.e. Summer in the Desert, no tourists here anymore) Have any of you all had experience with working at a job for an extremely short period of time?
This may sound like a retarded idea all around, but I'm still curious:
Can you spraypaint a laptop?
I just bought a second-hand laptop with fantastic specs that has barely been used. The only signs of use are a shitload of scratches on the front of it. I'm not really worried about it, because I didn't buy the laptop to show to people and be like "LOOK HOW PERFECT" - I bought it because it's a good computer. My brother is interested, however, in sanding down the scratches, taping important stuff off, and spraypainting it so it looks new.
Is this a hopeless idea, or is it feasable?
(Noting that the only supporting info I found online was from a bunch of people who made their own personalized Hello Kitty laptops. ...)
where can i buy a recycle bin?
So, I'm thinking of taking a Carribean cruise in December by myself, specifically a Princess cruise.
Any comments about Princess cruise lines or recommendations for other cruise lines?
I'm a little concerned about sea sickness, but I've been told not to worry. I also want to book an inside cabin and the itinerary I chose only has one full day at sea and the rest are at night, so I figured I'd be ok. Any experience with overcoming sea sickness and cruises?
I know I could take Gravol, but it makes me sleepy and I don't want to spend my whole vacation like that. I have the bracelets and I heard there's this thing you can put behind your ears. What other meds are there?
Finally, any recommendations for good travel agents that scored you a great deal? I'll take names and numbers.
i dont really have any better way of asking this question because i dont really know what im trying to ask, but..
letssay you really like somebody and that somebody pretty much feels justthe same way about you and as much as the both of you want to hook up,you know that your family and friends would never understand the strongbond you have with each other, let alone the society in general.!
Soi guess what im trying to ask is, what would you do? I mean, i reallyhave this strong, intense feelings for this guy but deep down inside, ijust KNOW that it would never work out and im just bummed about it.
Are there any other symbols to make besides the ♥?
Also if two people were drunk in a car and they got stopped by the police, would both be taken to jail?
I'm probably moving out for the first time soon. Scary! Sort of anyway, I'm one of those people with anxiety problems.
- How old were you you when you first moved out?
- Were you moving in with strangers, or people you knew? Or were you moving into a place by yourself?
- What sort of things will I absolutely need, but haven't thought of because this is the first time I've done this, or because they're not really obvious?
- Was it a good experience?
- Have any interesting stories to tell about moving out?
How do you get your ex manager to stop asking you out after you have repeatedly rejected his offers to a date? He'll do anything to get you to come in while he's working to ask you out to the point where he'll lie to you and when you get there he'll ask you out and you, once again, reject him. Any suggestions? I have to stay on good terms with this guy bc I go into that store all the time and if I don't have the option of going to the next closest one bc it's too far.
What's the most recent picture you have of yourself? I've been wondering what everyone looks like.

2. Have you ever heard of lemons growing on bushes?

2. What are some things I can put on vegetables to make them more tasty? All I have is seasoned salt, and it's getting mundane.
3. Who else is excited about The Twilight Zone marathon on sci-fi for the next three days? THREE DAYS! GLORIOUS!
4a. Has anyone read the Inheritence trilogy (well, the first two since the third isn't out yet) by Christopher Paolini? If you don't know what that is, it's Eragon and Eldest. What'd you think of them? I really like them, though Eldest is a bit slow.
4b. Are you excited about Eragon being made into a movie? I'm looking forward to it, but I'm rather disappointed on some minor detail. They made Arya into a blonde in the movie, which isn't a big deal, but I rather like that she's got black hair in the book and was hoping they'd keep her that way in the movie. Have they said yet who's doing the voice of Saphira?
4c. Are there other movies involving elves where the elves have dark hair besides LOTR? For example, Legolas has blond hair, but Arwen has dark brown hair (as does her father).
5. What are some options for lunches I can take to work that don't have to be refrigerated or heated in a microwave? Our teacher's lounge is infested with roaches, including the fridge (because half the teachers don't clean up after themselves) and when you use the microwave, it blows a fuse in the lounge and makes the lights go out in there (not to mention, it's unclean).
Is it possible to square an uneven number without a calculator?
like the number 231?

What's the sweetest/cutest thing you've done for someone you fancied?
i. Does dairyqueen ice cream taste like fried fat to anybody else? I had some yesterday and it was just... ick. I don't remember it being like that a few years ago.
ii. Are snowcones a big thing where you live? (you know, shaved ice and flavored syrup...)
Is it good to get these men worked up so sexual?
Quickly! Does anyone have some simple science-related puns that I could put on a birthday card?
That would maybe sound vaguely like a Valentine's card?
That I could draw a crude picture to go along with?
for those of you with a million (75+ i guess) people on your flist- do you read your friends page?
for the rest of us- do YOU read your friends page?
i always read every entry on mine, but when i see someone with, like, 200 friends i always wonder if they read theirs.
Is there anywhere online that I can get a list of what I can and can't take through customs? I'm in Scotland if its any use and I'm just travelling within Europe.
I totally suck at google! Thanks!
What is the best live show you've ever been to? When? Where? Why?
What was your most tragic laundering accident?
I just accidentally shrunk only one of my favorite cashmere socks. I don't know if I feel better or worse that only one of them got into the load. Now I have one normal soft and fluffy sock, and one tiny lumpy sock. Urrrgghh. I guess I should probably shrink the other one too, and give them to a child.

What do you think of Alice Walker? Ever read any of her books or other works? Do you recommend any of them?

My family can never get the name of a movie correct. None of them. My mother called me the other day to tell me how she saw "remote control" which I figured was Click. My grandma today kept talking about how she saw the lake movie while my great grandma saw the president movie. My grandpa really likes the mattress movies (matrix).
If you had a daughter, would you rather she be very smart or very beautiful?
(not that she couldn't be both, but if you could make sure she had one of those traits, which one?)

I just bought Turbo Jam, after reading about it online and finding tons and tons of positive reviews and not a single bad review. I hope it's worth the money.

Oh, and nothing too too expensive, since we're still students and can't afford to be totally frivolous....
