Is this true? Has anyone tried it?
"Inhumanely, I am gooey overcaution."
Please help :\
2 what do you like about it
3 what do you dislike about it
4 what would you rather be doing
1. work at an answering service (for hundreds of companies)
2. it's extremely busy most of the time, meaning little time to get bored. i have good hours usually, though they vary. and my bosses are pretty nice for bosses.
3. it's a very sedentary job. i have to work on sunday (but not saturday) and most of my co workers irritate me.
4. i'd like to be a writer or a lawyer
I'm thinking the chances of finding a website like that are slim, but hey, you never know.
Also, I don't have an iPod or anything, so do you know of any sites that can download to Windows Media Player?
Campbell's Pizza Soup At Hand...
Has anyone ever heard of this kind of soup? Has anyone ever tried it? I'm tempted to, just so I can see how gross it is.
In choosing one or the other, how would you weigh the ramifications of your choice? (i.e. unhappiness vs fallout from dishonor, etc.)
(Assume for the sake of discussion that the choices are only one or the other.)
what is some good animation/video editing software for under $200 or even under $100?
what should i ask for for my birthday?
Also, my parents have TERIBLE credit. I mean, tarnished beyond the point of repair. And I, at the young and ripe age of 18 have no fucking credti history. Therefore, it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to get any sort of traditional private loan. I have no available co-signer (see above). What, if any, other options are there for me to borrow money from a private institution???
Please help, I am supposed to move in to school on Saturday :(
**EDIT** maybe I should have been more clear about this: although the total cost of my school is roughly $41,000 a year, the school has given me around $30,000 in grants/scholarships/federal loans. I now need to find a place to come up with the REMAINDER of my tuition for the year, NOT the total tuition.**
Are you a concession card holder? (Concession card = card that gets you discounted fares, such as a student card, pensioner's card, disabled card...)
Do you often get people asking you to give up your seat for them, or offering their seat to you?
Okay, handraisers, I have a question for you. Suppose you're going to take the exam next month and you're looking for a review/study guide right now. How important is it for the book to be a 2006-2007 edition? If you found a 2005-2006 or something, would that work just as well? (I'm looking on Half.com and see some very cheap ones from 04, 05. Just wondering if those would be okay.)
Any tips on how to help someone study for this test? I'm trying to be supportive and helpful but without being too pushy and all motherlike. (He's 28 and scared shitless about going back to school, especially law school.)
"most depressing movies ever" list. A sad movie doesn't necessarily make the list. And some are just dark but for some reason just don't bring you down (the silence of the lambs, American Psycho...). Others have depressing endings but not so depressing beginnings and middles or vice versa, or somehow manage to leave me with a feeling of hope in spite of things, (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, or Shawshank and The Green Mile...). Then there's Love Story, Brian's Song, genre that I call sad movies, not depressing ones.
do you have lists somewhat like this?
if you have any, what're your categories?
what're you partial to?
for some reason, i'm partial to dark movies and ridiculous comedies (super troopers, etc...) that most people don't like...

1. It's really, really expensive.
2. It's a big deal to plan.
3. We're currently in a LDR while I'm away at law school (although only 4 hours away.)
3a. Is it ). or .)?
4. We've talked about getting engaged/married in the past.
4a: We've lived together for 2 years, been dating 2 1/2. We current don't live together.
5. Getting a "cheap version" would be bad. Or funny.
6. He asked me if there was anything I wanted. He said he saw a necklace he really liked, but that it'd be "too much." I don't know if he meant too much money, or just too much. I suggested earrings, and he said that'd be fine.
2. So that this isn't completely selfish, what is the deciding factor, for you, that makes a friendship no longer viable? Will you work hard to save a friendship, or do you just figure that people come and go and that's how life is?
EDIT: The only options listed that might even apply to me are High School Senior and Adult New Student, the options are here under student type.
EDI#2: Adult New Student was only for people 24 and older, I picked High School Senior!
2. Has anyone here ever worked at a consulate or Embassy before? What did you do there? Was it yours in a different country or a different country's consulate/embassy in your own country?
I'm going to apply to the Japanese consulate where I live. In the off-chance I get an interview, is there anything I should know?
Anyone else get this problem? How do you fix/bypass it?
1. What book changed your life and why?
2. What person changed your life and why?
The past couple of weeks, I've started getting a constant stream of error messages which prevent me from using the menus, until I clear the messages (which can be time consuming, since they pile up one on top of the other, sometimes at a rate of one every ten seconds or so).
Anyway, the message reads as follows:
"Firewire connections are not supported. To transfer songs, connect the USB cable provided.
Press Center to dismiss."
I haven't been doing anything differently with it, and I already tried reseting the settings. Anyone else had this and fixed it?
I'm only going to have about $100 or less that won't pay for something for this month. :(
The problem is,despite there being a cleaner who visits weekly, the level of cleanliness in the bathroom is pretty low. Every single time I go to take a bath or shower, I always have to clean it before hand because whoever used it before me has left it full of their manky hairs.
It disgusts me that people don't have the courtesy to do such a simple thing as rinse the bath after using it, and I find it really stomach turning to see loads of,what are obviously, pubic hairs stuck all over the bath tub.
I have been thinking about putting a notice up in the bathroom requesting that people take the time to rinse the bath after use(and i was considering wording it in such a manner that whoever it is who doesn't rinse the bath will feel quite bad).
If you were in this position what would you do?
Would you put a sign up or just carry on and ignore the issue?
Am I a freak for finding it so disgusting and irritating?
Give me ideas of things to check out?
(She failed all of her first year university classes - twice. She brought a pregnant friend to our house and the pregnant friend was drinking. She is rude and grating.)
She has invited us over to her place this week. I do not want to spend any time with this woman, and do not feel as though I am obligated to be nice to her just because I'm dating him. But I also do not feel as though I have the right to lord over his friendship and forbid him from going. Obviously the simplest solution is for him to go and me to stay home, except in this case I am afraid of being viewed as the jealous girlfriend and creating drama in our circle of friends.
What is the best course of action here?
EDIT: Thanks everyone - he'll be going without me, and I'll be spending some quality time with our xbox ;)
Yay or nay?
Last weekend, I went through three towns, a quarter tank of gas, and a roundabout before I found the store I was looking for about 300 yards away from where I was originally looking. Whoops.
In an unrelated question, if I call the local pharmacy and ask what the maximum safe dose of a new prescription sleep aid I picked up recently is, are they going to think I'm trying to off meself? (Kindly humor my anxiety... eh-heh)
EDIT: I looked up the ambien, and it turns out that I've already tried the maximum recommended dose. I guess I'll just have to be patient and hope for the best.
I'm not thinking clothes because I dont want to get the wrong size. Maybe heels...? handbag? Though she has a lot of those already...
This is unintentionally a vanity post, I apologize in advance, but either way: should I cut my hair? And if so, how much?
My hair has been pretty long for seven years or so, and I might be sick of it. What do you think?
Behind the cut are two pics, one of just my hair from the back after I take it out of a braid, and the other is the only recent picture I have of myself where my hair is at all visible to give a better idea of what I look like with the hair overall (it's from a Ren Fair, don't laugh ;). Okay, enough, ( Collapse )
I'm going to graduate in two years and I don't intend on going to grad school until I figure out what to do with myself. I want to move to Georgia where my boyfriend goes to college and will be going to school for awhile (he probably has at least 4 years more aside from his bachelor degree). I suggested moving to the same town, getting an apartment, and just working until we could get engaged, then move in together. He didn't seem too keen on that and wanted to just live together straight off.
Does this mean I don't love or trust him enough or am I being sensible?
2. You go to a fast food place. It has two drive-through windows and really tasty seasoned fries. Is it called Rally's or Checker's? Where do you live?
I was at work, and some guy left his four-year-old in his car, with the car running and the window only cracked a little, for half an hour, before the kid (screaming his head off) scrambled out the window and took off down the street.
Help me, please!
EDIT: She's not local, so it has to be something that can happen at a distance.
And...what do you do with it?
EDIT: I did check out some google/wikipedia sites already :o)
2. Has anyone here ever been to the West Edmonton Mall?
2)What relevance does heritage have on your life?
3) Oh, also, where do you live? Country/culture wise.
_ _ _ _ _ _
1) About 5-ish generations Anglo-Australian (ie. not really any definitive culture)
2)None really as I haven't grown up with any real culture (besides aust. pop culture) & even i i found out i had a, lets say, African parent I wouldn't have any connection with the culture because i hadn't been exposed to it. I wouldn't see how i (with this african relative) would have any more claim to that african heritage than anyone without an african relative.
1.] I'm 20. What are the chances of my being turned away for being too young?
2.] I have some nuerological problems, but they're not genetic. I don't see any reason why this would cause a problem. Am I wrong?
You find yourself pregnant and in a bad situation and decide that abortion is your best option. Would you ask or expect your parents to help pay for the abortion? Would it depend on your age? Would the circumstances that led you to become pregnant have an influence on that (i.e. rape versus voluntary unprotected sex)?
Your daughter is the one described above and comes to you for all or part of the money for an abortion. Would you give her any money? Would her age influence your decision? How about the circumstances under which she became pregnant?
Edited to add: Assume this is in a country where abortions are legal and not free/covered by universal health care.
I live in a dormitory, there are probably... ~4000 people in here. Before most people moved in, my internet blazed along, very nice... and it still does, unless I'm playing world of warcraft.
Things I know: I'm getting about 1/3 the framerate I usually do, and even worse when I'm trying to run. For people who know the game, I'm a mage and Blink still works- it'll go off and I'll jump forward, versus some *other* laggy times when blink lights up, then goes off five seconds later and I actually jump *backward* because I've already passed the point I would've jumped to... Leaving ironforge doesn't help any more than usual. my "ping", i guess it's called? lag? is actually fantastic, 50-100ms, better than usual...
And, if I am being cut off, or if it is an isue with how many people are here, is there anything I can do to offset it besides turning the quality way down? not like I'm raiding much now, so it doesn't have to be fantastic, but I'd like it to be at least playable.
Edit: found it.
Apparently my wireless card went "zomgnoes! my software has been uninstalled, so despite the fact that i have been disabled in favour of a perfectly stable non-wireless connection, I will install something to... search for a connection, maybe... install a giant resource-sucking program! to make her regret turning me off!"
1)do you think its too soon after the event to start doing all this?
2)Do you think it depends on what part of the country you live in?
I live very close to NYC(in NJ) and I actually saw it happening, and I just think it's much too soon, and that I would be bawling my eyes out if I went to see WTC in the theater.
Edited for my atrocious spelling.
How much weight would you lose?
Before anyone kicks off, I'm not going to starve myself or anything, I'm just curious.
How horrible is your college's registration process?
Where are we going?
When you are reading your Friends:
1. what are your favorite kinds of posts?
2. what keeps you from posting a comment to someone's journal?
3. do you wish your Flist would post more to you? or less?
All we have so far is Alexander Anderson from Hellsing (who's still a bit of a question mark as his nationality is never given away, but he sounds Scottish) and Morrigan from Darkstalkers.
Are there any good Scottish game/anime characters you can think of? I'm thinking named characters here too, not just "that guy who was in the background that one time"
hey, what were those pants from the 90's that were kinda like parachute pants but they had those rediculous patterns all over them?
they were called zaps or something?
Some people say that counter-protests take a stand against hate. Others say it draws attention to them, which is what they want. Others say that people should stay away, but donate money to anti-racist causes based on the number of nazis that show up, or how many hours the nazis are there.
Nazis are protesting in your town. counter-protests are a good idea or no?
feel free to elaborate what you think. if you've gone to a counterprotest, what was it like?
2.) If you watch Project Runway, who are you rooting for to win? Who do you hate?
3.) What's the last song you heard on the radio or elsewhere that you liked?
Or do you think marking as the years go by doesn't allow wounds to heal, if it's a bad thing you're remembering?
2. What is your favorite song to sing along with in a big group of friends?
3. For those who have lived with another person (or people), who was your best roommate? Worst? Any awesome stories to share about either one?
And this person calls you up and tells you he/she's in town for a week or two. But both of your schedules only sort of work out. If there was only one day you could meet up with that person but you had already promised your significant other that you'd spend the day with him/her, what would you do? You see your SO about once or twice a week and have been together for about three-four years. However, this person visits once a year if he/she is lucky.
example: I set the timer to take a photo every 30 seconds for 5 min.
EDIT: Make that a zombie prom queen.
What book are you currently reading?
What was/is your summer reading list? (Yes, inspired by an earlier question. Aimed mostly at students who do have reading lists. If you're not a student and you make a list, please share. :) )
