1. I'm a bit of a git. I'm looking to get my husband a scarf from his alma mater at Cambridge, but I can't find anywhere on their sites about obtaining such a thing. Does anyone know if there's a way to do this short of actually going to Cambridge and getting it?
On Monday I broke up with my girlfriend of nearly a year (exactly one week shy of a year :-[ ) It was a reluctantly mutual decision, in other words I was dumped. It was almost a friendly break up, we didn't fight and it could have ended on a much worse note. After that we still talked.
Two days later I got regrets and wrote her a two page letter full of emotion and feelings, I said abosulty nothing bad, just reasons why I missed her and wanted to get back together. She never responded. I've seen her do this before when she wants to avoid awkward situations, so I think it’s just her being her. On top of that she doesn’t really have any reason to be mad at me.
Now you know the situation to my question:
About a month ago before this all happened, in anticipation for our one year I bought her a Guitar. When we started dating she said how one of her ambitions was to learn and she never got around to doing it or never had the money to buy a guitar.
Two days from now will be our one year, I won't lie I never had the heart to return the guitar. I want to what you would think about me giving it to her.
I want to leave it outside the door of her place so I don't need to give it to her personally, I'll just leave a letter explaining why I bought it for her and that it was before we broke up then last that I don't expect anything to change. (I would be happy if it did though) I know she will really like the gift and that makes me happy to give it.
What do you think - sorry for such a long post it’s too emotional for me to cut short!
I live in Columbus and OSU won the biggest football game of the year today. I had to work right after and I work very close to campus, so I saw some crazy things on my way to and during work. Such as burning mattresses and people throwing fish at michigan fans (I have no idea what that was about.)
Do (or did) the people at your school do crazy dumb things like this? What's the worst that has ever happened.
I think one of the worst was knocking down a goal post one year. I believe they oiled them ever since.
I was just realizing over this weekend that Richard Linklater and Luke and Owen Wilson, Wes Anderson and maybe Matthew McConaughey all kinda have the same accent, which I guess must be sort of a "new Texas" accent, because they sure don't sound like ranchers or President Bush.
How much funnier would Bush be if his accent was like Owen Wilson's?
a) What was the first videogame you played? b) What was the first game you completed? c) Have you ever played any of the Zelda series? 1) Do you like it? 2) Which one's your favourite? 3) Did you know that most incarnations of Link are left handed?
My answers a) The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past b) See above c) Yes! I'm working on playing the entire series to completion. I'm currently working on Wind Waker 1) That's a great big hell yes 2) Link To The Past. Sentimental value, partly, but it's also a brilliant game 3) I didn't until last week, actually.
What would be the relationship between my daughter and my sister's fiance's mom? (after the get married anyway)
my sister's fiance would be her uncle (in law), so his mom would be.... great-aunt in law?
She also spends a lot of time with her daughter's boyfriends neice (same relationship as my daughter.. her son's girlfriend's niece... am I getting confusing yet? lol) and that little girl is three and calls her grandma (grandma in law?)
So yeah, what IS the relationship?
Unrelated random question, what show or movie is it from where the car horn beeps out la cucaracaha?
Ladies: Your SO has just proposed to you and you are definitely going to say yes because you love and adore him, when he pops open a ring box to the most hideous ring that you have ever seen...does this change your answer or the certainty of your answer? Do you think that if your really loved him, that it would change the way that you viewed the ring? (as in you began to like it more) What if you were already unsure when you saw the ring? Would it sway your answer?
Gentlemen: HOw much do you take into account your SO's tastes when buying an engagement ring? Or do you buy what society states she should like right now?
1. Have you ever dyed your own hair? If so, what color did you dye it, and what color was it before? 2. Were you pleased with the results? 3. Is hair dye really all that bad for your hair?
1. I just did yesterday for the first time! It used to be a light brown and now its a darker brown with a tint of reddish. 2. I love it! I've always wanted darker hair and now I have it. 3. This I just want to know because my hair feels much softer than it used to and I'm curious if this is just a deceiving side effect.
There is this synthetic-ish, electronic song (I'm not quite certain of the genre) that was released I believe in the mid-90's. All I can remember from the lyrics is this 'hey ma ma ma ma, ma hey' repeated again and again by a chorus of men and women. For some reason whenever I hear it, it makes me think of Africa. That's probably really random, but that's about all I know about the song. Does anyone know what the name of this song is or even who it MIGHT be by? Google and iTunes haven't turned anything up for me.
Any help is appreciated. This has been driving me crazy for years.
My boyfriend and I just bought a brand new artificial tree from K-mart, and he seems to be allergic to it-- sneezing a lot and feeling generally sniffly. Is there anything we can do? K-mart won't let me return the boyfriend.
EDIT: Are you an early tree-putter-upper or a late tree-putter-upper, and do you think people who aren't like you are crazy?
EDIT AGAIN: to all the take-it-backers, is it probably dust or something on this particular tree, or will he be allergic to any artificial tree, or any artificial tree from k-mart? Anyone have any experiences?
This question is going to sound really juvenile to some of you but: should i get a myspace?
I had one previously, last year to be exact. Then something happened and I was not allowed to sign in anymore, it was then I realized how many hours I'd wasted trying to make my myspace look cool, w/e.
so i figured i'd never really need one.
but now I feel the desire to have one again, as it would allow me to keep in touch with some people I never see.
Then the other part of me says not to waste my time on stupid fads.
I recently was given a Ricoh Caplio G4 wide Digital Camera by a friend of mine. I only recieved the digital camera. I didn't get any software of USB cable. I tried my USB cable from another camera and it fits perfectly. I snapped some photos and tried to transfer. I went onto this site and (tried) to download the software, but it says I need the CD. I'm at my wit's end. I want to transfer photos without having to use a cd and I want to download the software, no hassels.
For whomever was proposed to/will be proposed to: If your SO allowed you to choose your own ring, would you feel uncomfortable about money issues or would you be fine choosing whatever it is that YOU want with no regard to money?
Also for the people who are not married, do you feel uncomfortable letting your SO pay for frivolous things that only benefit you, like clothes etc.? Did it change after you got engaged or married?
I love alternative software, especially when it is a piece of free software that does basically the same function as a far more expensive version. What are some good alternative softwares that you have found?
MS Office alternative: OpenOffice Photoshop? Movie Creation Software? First Person Shooter?
I was reading this article on some Fox affiliates deciding not to air the OJ Simpson thing "If I Did it." I'd like to see about getting it pulled from my affiliate as well, but I am wondering who I would direct my complaint to. So here's the list of contact info for my Fox affiliate, who on here should I direct my email to? I know it's not the weather, but I'm thinking either the general manager or the programmer.
Also, have you ever written to an affiliate about a TV program? What was it for?
I just bought a sweatshirt on Friday and within several hours of getting it, I got a little bit of Kool-Aid (actually it was some sort of knock-off fruit punch, but it was pretty much Kool-Aid) on it. There was absolutely no way I could have treated the stain then, so it dried, and now there's a little pink stain. Any suggestions on how to get rid of it? Oh, it's 85% cotton and 15% polyester if that matters.
Have you ever re-read a book you loved as a small child and discovered new things that maybe changed your opinion if it?
When I was little, I loved all the Narnia books, and I re-read a bunch of them few years back. I'd never noticed the heavy Christian thing when I was younger. I still love them, but it's made me think slightly differently.
I already looked in the the community's history, but really couldn't find what I wanted to know. I'm starting to use a treadmill to tone up and lose weight and wanted to know how long should I use it a day to burn a good amount of calories? Should I use it before or after dinner? Is it okay to exercise at about 9pm, since that's around the time I get home from work? How long do you think it'll take me to lose a significant amount of weight using the treadmill everyday, based on your own experiences? I'm watching what I eat and can't afford Weight Watchers or anything, so I'm depending on my own will and the treadmill to keep myself in shape. I want to look excellent come springtime, so I think I have a good amount of time to really get things going.
Off the topic a little..today I was eating my dinner (spaghetti) and somehow glass got into my bowl, and nobody else's. How in the world did this happen? I wasn't even near glass and Dad checked the sauce bottle to see if it was broken anywhere..it wasn't. Just thought this was quite odd to find while chewing my dinner tonight.
Those of you on BC: Why have I had my period for about 3 weeks on and off? Is it because my BC is low hormone? I'm thinking of switching to Yasmin.
Sorry for the lack of details, but this is all I can remember:
The song has a late-1960s feel, at least to me.
A man sings this song with several male backups.
The phrase "sha-la-la" is repeated MANY times.
I heard this at the gym, so I think it may be a fairly recent song.
I would appreciate any help. Thanks! :D
ANSWER: I was at the gym again tonight and I heard the song in question. So, I listened carefully and remembered some of the lyrics. When I got home, I entered them into Google and I found the answer. The song is called "What Do You Want From Me?" by the band Monaco. You can hear the song here at YouTube. There's one thing I learned from this question, there's a bunch of songs with the phrase "sha-la-la," lol. Thanks to everyone who responded! :D
I just bought my brother's video ipod, and I am selling my photo ipod to my sister. There is a lot of stuff on my new ipod that I want, and of course I still want what's on my computer. Is there any way to keep what's on my new ipod in addition to my old stuff?
Do most stores mail you your paycheck after a certain amount of time?
Edit:I wasn't there to pick up my first paycheck, and when they gave me my second I forgot to ask about the first. I figured they must have mailed it because I didn't pick it up soon enough, and at my only other job if you didn't pick it up within two weeks they mailed it.
