Nightmare Before Christmas [Sep. 25th, 2006|02:03 am]

I'm hoping a Nightmare Before Christmas fan can help me on this. I have a snowglobe type thing (actually it isn't anything like a snowglobe but I think that's what they called it) that I got a few years back and I have no intention of getting rid of it but my friend wants one. I'd like to find out what it's called and if she can still get one. Does anyone have any clue how I could find this out? It would help if I knew what it was officially called, but I don't have the box anymore. This is what it is:

My boyfriend got it at the Disney store for me about... four years ago this Christmas I think. I'd rather not join a Nightmare Before Christmas community just to ask, so if anyone is in one and would be nice enough to ask for me that'd be great. :)

Do you have a personal recipe for sleep? Something that you do when you know you'll have trouble falling asleep and you need a little help, or just something that especially soothes you before bed.

For me, I put on Third Eye Blind's self-titled album at a moderate volume, and read Pippi Goes On Board until I fall asleep. Or sometimes I don't even have to read the book, if I just hold it in my hand while I'm in bed, it helps.

Clearly, Metallica is the only band whose real life fame and history matches what Brendon Small has done so far with Dethklok. Snakes N' Barrels is as much based on Guns N' Roses as possible. The number of members in the bands are both off, though. Is this intentional, or is Dethklok modeled, at least as far as members, after a real life band other than Metallica?

1. have you ever had an ulcer or sore on the inside your mouth? when did you get your first one? how often do you get them?

i have two in my mouth now and have never had them before this weekend.

2. how do you treat them?

i have been using orajel and it is nasty! and i don't like my mouth being all numb. it is helping though, as the sores have shrunk and aren't as painful anymore.

3. what do you think causes yours?

i have been trying to figure out why i got these. i am a little stressed for sure, but i have definitely been more stressed in my life. i hope these go away and never come back!

4. where in your mouth do you usually get them?

mine is at the very top where my gum meets the inside of my cheek, so they are being rubbed in between both. :(

I'm looking through my HMO provider directory trying to find a new doctor. Most of them have (B) beside their name indicating that they are board certified. Some of them don't. In the Behavioral Health section, a lot of the specialists only have LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) by their names--no MD, PhD, or even the (B).

Why would someone go to a doctor or counselor who is NOT board certified? Are they cheaper? (In my case that wouldn't matter, because I have insurance.)

Seriously now- Are memos *actually* used in real life?

It seems that for all the class periods we're having devoted to making our memos more concise (although they're still required to take up a whole page), it'd be much faster to write "Mr/Ms boss: I, bob, am going to do/recommend X, because Y." and skip all this.

Kinda like getting my high school math teacher to admit that, no, not going into a science/math field, what he was teaching was pretty pointless..
Edit on the math thing: He taught algebra 2, which broke my brain. he admitted *that* was worthless to me(since, if i didn't understand math, I obviously wouldn't want to work with it). he clarified, however, that geometry and the first half of algebra 1 would be used in the real world. I have found this to have great truthiness.

A friend of mine wants to get a fish tank in her dorm room. She's considering getting a 10 gallon tank (with filter and all that), but has a question about fish mixing. She's seen conflicting reports about keeping female betas with other types of fish.

So her question is, is it possible to keep female betas with other kinds of fish? If so, which kinds? Will it produce any stress on either kind of fish to be put together?

We plan on going to Petsmart/Petco and asking about it there, but I wanted to know if anyone here has done it before and if it worked out or not.

Also, I am thinking about getting hermit crabs and was wondering if anyone here has kept them before and could give me any advice about lids for a 10 gallon glass tank? I've read some information on the internet about having glass lids to help keep the humidity up, but I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for.

Thank you!

I hate doing two posts in one week, but I need input from people... I got the interview at Walmart, and I'll be calling the theatre soon to tell them I can't take the job. Bad thing is, I was just informed that Walmart does a nice piss test at the interview. Stupid old me smoked pot on Thursday, first time in about two months. Will it be out of my system by tomorrow afternoon, or should I keep drinking a ton of water?? I'm usually not like this, but it seems a load of bad karma had been poured on me in the last week. I saw somewhere on a website earlier that I could drink pickle juice to help clean out my system, but I can't stand the sight, taste, smell, anything at all to do with pickels so that is out of the question. My sister told me to take water pills too, but I don't know what good that'll do. I took two though, so who knows.. Just any feedback will be helful.

I put a 10 pound weight on my scale at home and the reading was accurate, so my best guess is that the reading is always higher at the doctor's office because the scales have been used so much.

I have over 30 credits, and for most schools I just looked at the requirements for transfer students is at least a 2.0. What do I do? I'm going to apply anyway, just incase. Has anyone had an awful GPA like this and straightened it out? Am I screwed forever and ever? Is anyplace even going to take me with that?

how in the world do those of you with long nails and contacts put in and (I have more problems here) take out your contacts?

I think my problem is that I had short nails for the first few years of having contacts so I when I take them out I start with the pads of my finger but then kinda at the end of the "scoop" end up grabbing it with my fingertips. I've tried to grow my nails out a few times (as in barely past my fingertips) but ended up having to cut them again because my nails were scratching at my eye when I tried taking the contacts out =(

When your boss is a sexist pig, and says really stupid things to you that imply everything you do is wrong, what do you do?

My boss told me I need to be more of a team player after a coworker told him that he "cried from stress" over the weekend when we were the only two on staff. He also claimed that he asked me for help and I refusaed. He claimed that the trainee I'd sent up to assist him (2 weeks training on a reception job was no help.) Meanwhile, he had a trainee that he told was a godsend to him to her face. I only refused to do another job in addition to mine. He never asked after that. (Largely because he was too busy playing boss to understand how to actually to do it.) He also has taken on many, many more tasks since he started here and it sounds like he overwelmed himself. Plus, with his anal perfectionism he's alienated everyone but the boss, so for instance we he asked if I'd take back over a data entry thing he'd taken over from me during training, I told him he did it so perfectly, he should continue. :-) This peckerhead also refuses to give me my bathroom breaks--which is evidentally acceptable to my manager because that's how it was done in the past. (yep, I know that's not legal.)

I of course must get a new job ASAP, but in the meantime. Anything that might prevent me from workplace homicidal rage?

ETA: If you work at HR at my firm, please call me tomorrow at my personal extension and I'll discuss evidence with *you*. Otherwise, if you consider your boss a sexist pig who discriminates against you what would you do?

I was just curious because an article I read on AOL didn't list New Jersey as one of the cheapests states for gas. Anyone in other parts of New Jersey here? How much do you pay for gas?

Suppose you move to a new city and you meet some really nice people. You have fun hanging out, and you're all new so you don't know too many other people.

Then you realize they have totally different political views. They sometimes jokingly bash your beliefs, not realizing what they are.

Would you out yourself as disagreeing with them? Or just stay quiet and change the subject, hoping they don't ask you point blank if you agree? If you don't say anything, would you feel like a traitor to yourself, or feel you were just being agreeable?

When I was a wee lass in the 80's, we used to do these chanting games on the playground. Stuff like:

Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
All down her back, back, back
She asked her mother, mother, mother for 50 cents, cents, cents
to see the elephants, elephants, elephants
jump over the fence, fence fence...


Did you ever do that when you were little? Which ones did you do?

Does anyone else here use MSN messenger?

I'm currently using version 7.5 and have Windows XP SP2. Whenever someone sends me mp3's as a file transfer, if I click the link that shows up in the message window after it's been transfered, MSN or Windows automatically deletes the file, saying it is potentially unsafe. Is there any way to get around this? It's quite annoying.

I'm afraid to fix my computer and insert a new sound card...cause I've been having problems with it for over a year. And I just can't take it anymore...without sound. It sucks. I can't even watch YOUTUBE videos. So I'm about to make a post on Craigslist...asking someone to fix it for me. Is that a stupid idea? I'm not sure how people would take it...I don't want them to think it's code for them to come over and expect to get laid. If it's an okay idea, how much do you think I should charge for the person to fix it for me?

Why is it when a little kid or a pet does something gross/annoying (peeing/picking the nose/walking around naked/knocking shit over), it's seen as "cute," but when an adult human does it it's seen simply as...gross/annoying"?

lawyers:

can someone who overpaid me by check, legally take that money back when they discover the error down the road, after the money has been deposited?

edit: this is a property management returning security deposit (and then some). i no longer live on their property.

btw, they did not pay me until after their legal 30 day period.

Ancient Star Charts... [Sep. 25th, 2006|08:44 pm]

[mood |determineddetermined]

I've tried a number of different word combinations (constellation drawings, start charts, ancient constellation drawings, ancient star charts, ETC..)
all on both Google and Yahoo image search only finding bits and pieces of what i need.
Then today i made my way to the library and through hundreds of books not finding anything.

i can not find a decent full BIG picture (showing good detail) of a Star Chart from (around) the 18th century
i am looking for an ENTIRE full picture of the whole circle of constellations (all drawn ofcourse),




SO my question is, where can i find a complete, large picture of this type style of ancient constellations?
ANY pictures, links, or book information would mean so much.

Thank you!

Do you know anyone who is currently employed as a Physician's Assistant? What area do they work in? Do they like their job? Have they told any horror stories about the schooling required for it?

(Edited to add) Do you know of any good websites to find out general salaries for certain professions?

And so this isn't totally self-serving... Any good/interesting/sad/funny news you'd like to share with the group?

So, I've finally decided I might want an iPod. A few questions:
1. Do you recommend any one iPod over another? (I'm looking at the 80GB one.)
2. Have you ever had to replace a battery? How long do they usually last?
3. Some of my friends have told me that they get unlimited songs from iTunes. Was this a promotion or can I still do it? (If so, how?)

Thanks for your help!

I'm not a big fan of alcohol, but from time to time I'll go to bars with my friends. I don't normally have a problem with getting carded because I know I look younger than I am, but is it necessary to card someone if they aren't ordering alcohol? I was once carded for a coke, which surprised me.

Edit: I've been to this bar several times, and I've only ever been carded if I ordered alcohol...so getting carded to just be sure I was 21 isn't their normal policy, it seems.

Also, I once ordered a virgin margarita (I was underage at the time) at a restaurant and I was told that they don't do those. The waiter also looked at me like I was crazy for asking. Why do people have a problem with someone that doesn't enjoy drinking? It's not all that strange, is it?

So, just how many of you are smokers? (And I mean cigarettes, for the record.) It seems like I'm the only person in my small circle of friends and family that doesn't smoke, and it weirds me out a little.

What did you spend the evening doing?
Checking out TQC, of course. :)

1.) Do you form opinions about people on LJ based on their choice of userpics?

2.) Is there a way to trick iTunes 7 into not scanning my entire music library for gapless playback information? Lots of mp3s + network storage = lots of CPU time wasted on a feature that I don't even want to use.

3.) Why does iTunes 7 suck a bigger barrel of dick than previous versions?

Since I'm trying to figure out a schedule for my last semester at college, I figured I'd post some education inspired questions...

1) What was your favorite class in high school? In college?
2) What factors influence how you determine what class is your favorite?
3) For those of you who graduated from college, how much of what you learned in college do you actually use in your job?
4) Who has been your favorite teacher and why?
5) What is the most interesting class you have ever taken?

my answersCollapse )
