Thank you for your help.
I sent them an e-mail and am still waiting for a response, but what is the liklihood of me getting refunded the shipping cost?
OH another question, sorta related... I was thinking about how when you make online purchases all the transaction information is saved on file so there is no need for a paper receipt. How come when you use your credit card or debit card in-store, you still have to get a paper receipt? Will there ever come a time when "plastic" transactions don't get paper receipts back?
I've been updating right before 7.0, and after reading several complaints posts, frankly I'm afraid to go to 7.0.
So far, thanks to my iTunes on shuffle, I've added :
Social Distortion - Ball and Chain
Dire Straits - So Far Away
I need some more, enough to fit on an iPod Shuffle.
It doesn't matter if it's free or not, just the names will do fine :) thanks!
What's something that makes you gag at the thought of?
I can't handle wet cling-rap or scrunched up tissues.
Not meaning to exploit anything here, but I was wondering if someone could help me understand what's being said, in this clip of Bindi Irwin reading a tribute to her dad. It sounds incredibly sweet, and as I'm slightly hearing impaired, it's tough to make out what individual words are at times, without being able to see the person's face better. Here's the clip: http://www.break.com/index/bindi_irwin_tribute.html
Could anyone tell me the gist? Also... anyone else think she looks like one of the most cutest, sweetest kids? I wonder if she ever took part in stuff Steve was doing, or will grow up to be the same way. Go hug your local critter....

You have the money to buy any computer you want for general home use, with your pick of any software application for that system. What operating system is it running, primarily?
I've tried to find information on this and failed, so if anyone can help me, that'd be sweet.

I have an amazing recording of Franz Biebl's "Ave Maria" by a men's choir of some sort. Every other version I've heard has paled in comparison to this one. However, I have no way of knowing who sang it because I downloaded it randomly about a million years ago.
I really want a whole cd of this kind of music (you know, all catholic-y churchy sung-in-latin kind of stuff). But it has to be beautiful.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Has anyone heard this piece? What do you think of it?

Richard is pretty non ethnic I think.
During a typical day in August...
do you think there are more mosquitoes or grains of sand on the beaches in the state of Florida?
ETA: i mean mosquitoes in the state, not just mosquitoes on the beaches. duh stupid syntax.
TQC, I have like a 5 hour gap between classes. I live a half hour away from my school, and I'm a bitch about gas, so I refuse to drive there twice a day. However, there is a book store about 10 minutes from me. What are some good books or manga you'd recommend? Preferably the long variety.
Augh, augh, augh
The water in my building's been out for a bit (and by out, i mean brown), so I'm a bit behind in cleaning my tanks. I haven't gotten to my 20 gallon yet, but I'm cleaning my ten-gallon and there are tiny worm things in it!
They're about a centimeter long, only barely thicker than hair, a lot of the ones I'm getting look dead but some of them twist around a bunch. I think I'm vacuuming up clots of dead ones, but there are way more escaping.
I'm assuming 'bad' here- am I right? how do I get rid of them? where did they come from?
(green spotted puffer, pleco, and a feeder shrimp if the puffer hasn't eaten him yet)
Edit: they're pinkish, and they seem to be living in the gravel.
Edit 2: freshwater tank
Thanks in advance.
Which bag style do you prefer?
If you prefer backpacks, do you usually wear them on:
If your backpack comes with the extra strap that goes across your chest, do you use it?
If you prefer messenger bags, do you usually wear them over:
If someone gives me a check made out for $128 to pay for something that costs $98, will they be able to tell from their bank statement that there was a difference and I got cash back?
LivePlasma lets you find bands and movies that are similar to eachother. Is there anything like that for books?
Sorry this is a very specific question, but any answers would be awesome. I'm looking for a college with a good directing major program within 5 hours of NYC. Preferably closer than that. Any ideas?
1) despite new batteries, it seems the keyboard and mouse are *really* slow or jump around
2) the computer keeps freezing or taking forever to process simple commands (like, typing in a web address).
I didn't get a warranty this time--I feel like their warranties are crap (even if it did give me a new computer this time, it still took *months*). So if this is a real problem I need to return it ASAP. But if this is just the computer "settling in" then that's fine. I did transfer over a few gigs of my music today.
Also, should the wireless keyboard be acting that way? I paid $100 for it but it's not working well... Anyone had this experience?
I'm making pancakes for dinner and it says I need an egg. I dont have one. Can I still make the pancakes?
Also, what is all the hype about House? Am I gonna have to pass up a classic episode of friends to watch that shit? Its the one where Chandler cant remember which sister..
I'm a vegetarian.
It's not a huge political thing and I never try to force my opinions on anyone else. I don't freak out when I eat a soup made with meat broth and have no problem just picking the pepperoni off a slice of pizza. I basically just don't enjoy meat as much as others and I find the idea of it vaguely repulsive and choose not to eat it. I have tried to eat fish in the past, but I just can't seem to bring myself to taking that bite.
Also, the boy and I have decided booze is not the best friend we ever made in our lives and have decided to go cold turkey. I wouldn't say "classic alcoholic" would describe either of us, but we both certainly had a few years there (ie: college) where the booze flowed basically non stop and it didn't get us anywhere. We've each tried to do the moderation thing, but decided it's actually easier to say no altogether.
So..... We're planning on travelling to Europe at some point(s) in our lives, and I was wondering -
Do you guys think we should let up on our drinking ban and my meat ban when we get there?
Part of me can't imagine visiting and missing out on authentic dishes, but part of me gags at the idea of chomping down on flesh.
Also, part of me can't imagine missing out on all those French wines and German beers, but part of me is worried that we'll get back home and go, "Well, we drank over there just fine... Why can't we drink over here? Same difference!"
What do you guys think?
Who's your favorite hockey goalie? [If you follow such things]
My only problem is that I'm having a difficult time picking a passage to use. So, which one of these appeals to you the most (regardless of length)? Why (answer this only if you feel so inclined)?
( Collapse )
If none of them is appealing to you, what topic would be appealing?
My mother was obsessed with Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella and sang me this one song (when Cinderella and the prince are dancing in the ballroom...maybe "ten minutes ago?) over and over again.
When did you get your period/menses/menarche?
So I wondered what piece of "art" (using art as a general term to cover literature etc.) has somehow changed your life, made you see things differently or changed your thoughts on morality or society in general?
Interesting to see what people come up with :)
I just got a maybe job babysitting tomorrow and saturday. The lady has three kids, agges 5, 3, and 1. Tomorrow I'm going over to meet the youngest two and watch them for a few hours while the mom unpacks (they just moved here), and sat I'm watching all three while the parents are at a wedding.
The thing is, I have NO idea what to charge. I havent been paid for babysitting (outside dinner or something of the like) for years! Even then, I generaly went along with what the parents said.
I assume Saturday I'll have to feed the buggers, and I always clean up after the kids when I sit. You know, pick up toys, clean our dishes, change diapers and clothes if dirtied, etc.
Also forgot to say, this family seems pretty well off. I've only ever sat for families around my own income level before. They have a second home here (I'm not sure if this is thier second home, or of they're moving here now) and live in Jersey.
So, what should I charge?
- are these places that give sensual massages illegal?
- if so, who would get in trouble with the law? the workers? the owners? or both?
Should I get myself a massage for my birthday? Since I don't have any friends I could bribe into doing it for me.
What should I expect if I do get one? I've never had one before (and I'd get it at the healthplex at school since students get a discount).
Anyway, if someone was transgender and pre-op, and they went to a college where they had to live in the dorms for a certain amount of time... would the college make special accomodations? I s'pose it depends on the college, but I'm talking in general here. I just wonder what gender roommate they'd get.
Along the same line, what if they're post-op?
Are there any colleges with special dorms for GLBT people that feel unsafe or just wanna be with other GLBT people for whatever reason?
does it have anything to do with the letters they begin/end with? the object, if any?
i can't remember who, but someone recently asked about the band "umbrellas" but wanted to call them "the umbrellas".
i'm also tempted to say "the eurythmics"
any ideas? or other examples?
Excuse my ignorance...
What is it about the animation that you find truly appealing? I dont even know what you call it...With the animated people? why do so many of you have it in your icons? What is it and what do they do? I feel truly ignorant...Whats their story because I am so confused....where did they come from? Why do you like that kind of thing? Feel free to speak from your hearts...
I want to understand.
What could be causing that? Is there a way for me to fix it?
Mine at home in Michigan is, but here at college in NYC, they aren't and that surprised me.
what about your SO's?
I have a necklace that I want to sell. It's a round brilliant 0.26 carat diamond solitaire on a 16" platinum chain from Tiffany & Co. I got it from my then-boyfriend as a birthday gift a few years ago. We're no longer together and I don't wear the necklace anymore so I want to get rid of it. I don't know how much he paid for it, but probably quite a big since this one is already $900 and mine is bigger and better quality (colour is F, clarity is VVS2). For all you diamond smarties out there... what is a fair price to ask for it?
Also, my apartment gets really, really dry in the winter time. I already have a humidifier but is there anything else I can do to raise the humidity level? Will plants help? Anyone have any tips?
