I start my training on Saturday, but so far I've got some really bad feelings about this job.
Any input would be helpful.
Thank you all.

Are you allowed to dress up for Halloween at your workplace?
If you're allowed to dress up at work, do you?
How do you feel about other people who wear costumes to work?
How often do you wash your hair on a daily basis?
What are some of your reasons for not washing your hair every day, if you already do not?
Would you EVER use a product that would safely clean your hair without the hassel of shampoo and conditioner if it was made?
What would some of your concerns be if you ever did use said product?
to where do you want to retire? pittsburgh for me!
why would you name your child "cain"?
On a road trip last week, some buddies and I stopped at a Burger King. I got a veggie burger, which cost me twice as much as their real-meat burgers, which were twice as large as mine. I thought for a moment.
I don't know how much you can get for one cow, but I know that livestock in general fetches surprisingly high prices per animal. I guess it can vary a lot based on a lot of factors, but how much can you get for one good cow? It's several hundred bucks, right?
And it goes through at least one more channel before it's on your tray at Mickey D's, so what I don't understand is how cows can be profitable when burgers sell so cheap.
My friend says it's "because they milk it for all it's worth. No pun intended." :) And I'm sure they do, but seriously...how much can you get from one cow? Or pig? Or anything...? I just don't get it.
Anyone care to explain to the curious vegetarian? Thanks.
Should I be concerned?
If your friend sends a follow-up email saying she hasn't reached her target, do you donate again?
An old distant friend is doing the AIDS marathon and has fallen $1700 short of her target.
EDIT: For clarification, I'm not talking about his taking you to his favourite restaurant on the lake when it gets serious enough. 'Cause that's cool. It's more like... he comes over unannounced in the morning with flowers. Then he reads you his favourite poem. Then he whisks you away to a beach where he's got a picnic all set up. Then you guys go hoseback riding on the beach, followed by watching the sunset. All this uber romantic stuff which you go bragging to your girlfriends about. Is it still romantic once you find out he's done the EXACT same thing for someone else?
When giving directions do you give more landmarks or do you go more by street names?
What are some things that automatically give a troll away?
Where was the last place that you went that involved significant travel?
2. How good is your short term memory?
3. Do you ever find yourself thinking that your mind is just not working as well as it used to be?
4. How clearly do you remember your childhood memories?
5. What usually stands out in your memories?
6. Are you afraid that you will just lose everything you used to know?
7. Anything else to say about the way you remember?

If you were at a costume party and a gay guy shows up dressed as a girl, would you be creeped out if he talked about his underwear?
ps. please don't bitch at me for asking specificly for straight guys. They're the only ones I actually need to answer.
For me it's: Song For A Winter's Night by Sarah McLachlan, but I'm looking for some more!
2. If you don't know any of the candidates on a ballot option, what do you do? I'm guessing most people choose by party, but sometimes they don't have/need a party. Do you not choose any? Choose randomly? Do you have a strategy?
3. Has anything lucky happened to you today?
4. Favorite nut?

Robert De Niro movie?
Ben Stiller movie?
Keanu Reeves movie?
Kevin Costner movie?
I'm sure someone already asked, but I couldn't find it...so feel free to tell me I'm an idiot and link me to it....
[Edit] : Thanks...got it!
Are you done with LOST after last night's episode?
What food or beverage would your life be positively dismal without?
If you shave your legs, do you shave your knees while they are bent or straight? How high do you usually shave your legs?
Anyways...do you play video games (console, PC, handheld or otherwise)?
How old do you think is too old to "still be playing" video games?
[TMI if you're extremely squeamish]

so, do they use laxatives or not? if not, why does it take such little time?
What was the smallest pay raise you've ever gotten?
What was the longest you've been at a job in which you never got a pay raise, or that took forever to give you a raise?
What was the shortest time you were at a job before getting a pay raise?
What were the circumstances surrounding said raises?
...does the word "raise" seem really weird to you right now??? raise raise raise. LOL
Should I get a Mac or PC? Why?
Are there any holiday season movies that you can't stand? Why?
And by anyone, I mean you...
2. Have you ever been scared by a movie that's not in the horror or slasher genre? If so, which movie?
3. In high school, did your class or a bunch of kids ever band together and plan to do something 'against' a teacher? Either a harmless, silly prank to annoy them or something to get them in trouble or a senior prank or something. What'd they do?
4. I won a $10 iTunes gift certificate from blingo (yay!) and am having the hardest time deciding what to buy with it - what are some albums that you think are must haves that I should look into? I already have a ton of rock and metal, so maybe something classical or country or hip-hop or punk.
5. If Richard Wagner were around today, what kind of music do you think he'd be involved with? Howabout Mozart?

If you truly decide on a candidate-by-candidate basis (as opposed to voting with a party), what factors make or break a candidate for you?
How long do headaches last when you get them?
I tried googling this but came up empty at first glance...does anyone know of a website similar to gofugyourself.com that is like a celebrity eating disorder watch? GFY sometimes touches on this subject. I don't know why but I'm kind of grossly fascinated with it. :-/
"New law states no sex until you're 30 or legally married."
We had a nice laugh over this (after I assured him that this wasn't a new US law [and I'm 99% sure it isn't]).
What have you had a nice laugh over today?
Unrelated: What is the WORST song played at wedding receptions?
i don't understand my organic chem lab assignment, and it's due in
is anyone good at orgo and can help me?please???
i will freaking give you
2$ now, for one problem.
i only need help with one problem now:
Usually, bimolecular nucleophilic substitution (SN2) reactions occur under basic conditions. The SN2 reaction of 1-butanol by a halide ion is a rare example of a SN2 reaction under acidic conditions. Of course, halide ions were not the only nucleophiles in your reaction medium. Draw the acid-catalyzed SN2 reaction mechanism that depicts the step-by-step formation of the side product dibutyl ether from two molecules of 1-butanol.

1. How do you feel about viewer-decides competitions where the voters are allowed to vote for their faves online as many times as they want to? What do you think would be the best or fairest way to gather votes from people in this type of competition or do you think the way mentioned already is the best? (I've seen controversy over this on the award show messageboard - that there are Katherine McPhee fans allegedly using automation programs to vote for them thousands of times while they're away from the computer)
2. a)Have you or will you be voting in the VH1 Big in 06 awards? I am, mostly because I got sucked into it because Colbert mentioned it on his show, and now I can't help but vote for Colbert, Jon Stewart, and also Steve Carell who happens to be against YouTube (three separate categories). Otherwise I couldn't say I would've ever found out about it.
b)If yes, how much time do you plan to spend voting (one vote, a few votes, 100 votes, much more) and will you be concentrating on certain people/a certain person? I've hardly paid attention to the categories besides the ones the above three are in.
Does anyone get the plot of the video? I got nothing.
I'm thinking about buying this painting; looking for some objective opinions on it.
What's your first impression? What do you think it means? Feel free to speculate and analyze, I'd like to gain as much perspective on this as I can.

President Bush quoted in an article in today's New York Times said:
“You know, imagine this; we’re in the middle of a war on terror, and one of the most fundamental fights is in Iraq,” he said. “And yet, the Democrats have no plan for victory. They have no idea how to win. Harsh criticism is not a plan for victory.”
Do you think this qoute is funny?
Do you think President Bush has a plan to win?
Do you think President Bush and the Republican Congress have spent American tax dollars wisely?
Do you think President Bush and the Republican Congress have spent American lives wisely?
Do you think President Bush and the Republican Congress have made the United States of America safer from terrorism?
If Curtis Stone stopped you in the supermarket, would you bring him home with you?
Would you actually CARE what he cooked?
For those of you who don't know who he is, he's an Australian chef who trained in England, wrote some cookbooks and is now based in America on TLC. He's 6'4", blond and hunky.
What are black gangs like in England/Australia/Other non-US countries? I can only really picture what I know growing up in the U.S. I can't really picture how they might speak with an English or Aussie accent. Does Ebonics work with a different accent? I looked up the definition of Ebonics which states that it is an American dialect. Do other countries have an equivalent?
I am a student and don't know much about cameras. I just want one that's easy to use and takes clear pictures. I would like it if the display was big, but I am looking for a small camera. Also not extremely expensive.
EDIT: not extremely expensive = less than 200 bucks
I'm sort of skeptical about it all. He didn't say who he got my supposed resume from, nor can I think of anyone who would forward my resume to the company. I did post my resume on workoplios and the such, but I would think that the manager would say he got it off the site.
I'm sort of looking for a job, as I'm graduating in April 2007.
Should I call the company and ask if the e-mail was legit? Should I just reply to the e-mail and see what is going on?
which do you think is most accurate?
I always begin with my left thumbnail.
I think it was from Valentine's Day 2003-ish, and I searched her archives/google to no avail.
Feel free to let me know what an idiot I am if you find it in .2 seconds though.
Please and thank you.
If so, have you ever played anything since with a similar feel of wanton violence and freedom?
One request struck me as somewhat... different, I guess. It was for a rape care program. The request was for plain t-shirts, sweat shirts, and cotton shorts (not odd). The clothing requested was also to be plain in color (also, not odd), "mostly larger sizes" (not really odd, I guess, right?)... and new. The request stated that everything HAD to be new.
Don't get me wrong -- I wouldn't be handing over any stained, bleached, threadbare or otherwise raggedly clothing. But what's wrong w/ accepting some gently used plain-on-color clothing? Is there something about rape crisis centers that dictate any clothing must be new?
2. Was it successful or too hard to stick with?
3. Where can I find good gluten-free and sugar-free recipes?
Why or why not?
2. Any of you signed up with promosquad.com? If so, have you "earned" any prizes yet? Did you have any problems getting them after you had ordered?
3. Is it best to stick with a job that you're used to and are pretty decent at even though it slowly kills portions of your soul? Or should I be lookin' for another job... even though the job market in my town sucks?
I got a Dell Inspiron E1505, and I love it.
When I look at LJ, icons that are supposed to be animated are not.
At first they were moving, but after a little they weren't.
I can't, for the life of me, figure out why.
Do you know what is wrong with my computer?
It is brand new (got it late August for college), and it is very pretty.
How can I fix this? I wanna look at pretty icons/understand some peoples icons.
I know it's not a big deal, it just pisses me off.
Another computer question.
On my laptop, where my left arm/palm rests, the laquer (or finish, or whatever it's called) is kind of wearing away. It's getting a little rough, and weird felling. That's also happening on the left scroll button where I press down.
Has this happened to you?
I try to make sure my hands are dry/don't touch that area, but it's weirding me out.
The right side is fine, because I'm a lefty and use my left hand for everything.
A guy in class today told me that the government made the AIDS virus and they have a cure for it but won't give it out.
Is this true?
Do you believe it?
Why would the government do this?
If they have a cure, why won't they make more of it and give it out?
There are probably more questions to go along with this but I can't think of any more at the moment.
I don't think I believe any of it.
Feel free to post your opinions...
My apartment is rather old and there are a lot of gaps and spaces betwen walls and stuff. We've got a bunch of traps set up in all of the places we've seen them and have steel wool in the gap by the pipes under the sink. And yes, we are trying to keep our kitchen as clean as possible and keeping garbage cleaned up and off the floor and all of that, but they've been running throughout the building, so I have a feeling they'll come in no matter what we do.
What are some other ideas you can give me for mice-proofing our home?
And why do you think the mice only come into our apartment on Wednesday's? We found the first evidence of them on a Wednesday morning, caught the first one on a Wednesday morning and the second one on a Wednesday night.
I recently lost 31 pounds (over a period of a year or so, not all at once.)
I went from being 5 foot 7 inches and 164 pounds to being 133 pounds.
My thighs still look hidious (I tend to store fat there, and I rarely exercize them).
But luckily enough, in a few days I will have access to a gym.
I'm not big on exercizing with things that don't involve machines (like workout videos/sessions) because I have a disorder and my coordination isn't too good, same with my motor skills.
Any ideas on what gym machines would help me work out my thighs (besides the treadmill?) ?
Anyways, I'm looking for any tips you might have for looking decent and not paying OUTRAGEOUS prices for it. (Like the stuff you see in most men's magazines? Way too expensive.) Something I can go to the mall and get.
I'm generally a t-shirt and jeans kind of guy, but I figure it's about time to grow out of that. It's winter here in Canada and I wear hoodies almost exclusively.
Both genders are more than welcome to chime in.
