2.) My friend's boyfriend has been acting like an asshole lately to both me and my friend (he's really sarcastic and he just treats us like idiots and insults us alot), she really really really loves him and he means the world to her. Today he just told her that he's thinking about dumping her because of "long-distance issues." She lives less than an hour away from him. What should I do/say to comfort her? I'm not too sure, she's in college right now and I'm at home, I have no way to get to her right now. She's miserable. I've already IMed her and tried to cheer her up.. but internet hugs can only do so much. :( I've tried to calm her down a bit, its not really helping. She's been with him for almost a year now, and he was/is a good friend of mine.
3.) Should I clean my room tonight?
how do you pronounce this name?
2) Why isn't firefox saving my passwords?
2. I'm looking for black vinyl shoes/boots online. I've searched and searched! No black ones! Only white! Any idea where else I can look?
3. Following the online shopping theme, where can I find cheap you-supply-the-slogan tshirts? I give them the saying and they print it on? (black shirts)
4. Lush Bath and Body stuff - I like their unique all natural things. Any other comapnies in that style? (all natural if pos)
THANK YOU OH MIGHTY QUESTIONCLUB
PS: Noone made me an xmas icon, so I mspainted my own. BOOYA
I am currently being demanded to work 7 days a week, for 10 hours a day. I can't say no, because unlike other countries, the US provides no law on the maximum amount of hours a person can be forced to work. In fact, in Minnesota, an employer can demand that you work any amount of hours with absolutely no advanced notice... and if you say no, you can be fired.
I was thinking of trying to get some really unique sexualized shows for my acts. So far, I have a light show (involving led glass dildos), a burlesque-styled show, and I tried fire-eating, but it didn't work terribly well for me. A girl I know does a puppet show... and somehow she pulls it off, but there's NO WAY I could.
I'm looking for a really unique (and SERIOUS!) idea that'll set me apart from 'all the other girls'. What show can I give that's not only sexy but entertaining, fun and memorable?
Edit: Oh yeah, and legal in the state of Queensland.
Please list examples of the supposed hilarity.
edit: American version.
I've always been taught that verbal violence is just as bad as physical. Yet, people often seem to say that fighting is healthy. What do you think?
I get these really trippy ideas (example, I was reading through an Auto Trader ad, and noticed for a Toyota dealership, there were no Toyotas listed to sell, and thought that was strange), and a mini-Alzheimer's, like walking into the kitchen and forgetting what I just went to get or today when I got done with work (I work 3-11) and sat down at the computer, after a bit, and thought, 'damn, I'm cold!' Then I had a "Grandma's Boy" moment..."oh dude. I'm nude!" Also, baths and showers are really neat, and I feel like I get cleaner. Food seems to taste so much better too. I also get a litte less coordinated. I also get this urge to wash dishes.
What are some of your high thoughts?
If so...for what?
I woke up and went out on my deck in my underwear. It was a very comfortable 60-some degrees.
Do you like iced tea? Sweetened or unsweetened?
Furry Friday or Nyeday?
Did you take out loans? If so, what kind? Was that a good one to do or are you regretting it? Do tell.
I did my FAFSA and was denied any financial aid. Swell, huh? Scholarships are not happening (I don't qualify, what with being female 27 single no kids employed and white) and it looks like my only option is going to be student loans. ((I've done the first half of the BA at a JC but it is now time to move on up to the University. Eeek.))
And if anyone wins the lottery, feel free to kick a few grand my way. Just sayin'.
What was your first kiss like?
Mine was 12 years ago today, on the bank of a small stream across from my high school, with a dorky kid named Seth. He put a Mento in his mouth and told me to come get it. I only remember because of the date.
What was your last memorable dream?
I dreamt last night that Rick Santorum was reading my email over my shoulder and telling me how much sex he's been having since he doesn't have a job anymore. WTF.
Do you think Hot Topic is punk rock?
I'm listening to that MC Lars song called "Hot Topic Is Not Punk Rock."
When was the last time you were REALLY silly? What were you doing?
Edited to add another question: What if the rings weren't from your family but from an antique shop? You wouldn't know the history behind them. Would you be open to the idea?
( Collapse )
If you can't do that, could you suggest other LJ communities where I could post this? Or other forums online?
Also, if I can't compile enough results online (it would be nice as my schedule is fairly rigid), how should I go about asking people? Can I go to Barnes and Noble or something and ask people to take my survey? What would you do?
( Collapse )
I have about another page to write (single spaced) that may make me a little while. My belly says it's lunch time :(
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeedit: What's another good phrase for "in this case"
eg: "In this case, Cole forced his father to tell him..."
what DO i want for christmas?
bearing in mind:
nothing toooo expensive
mum is very anti-giftcards
nothing related to sex.
no undies or bras. that's just plain weird
I was just reading about Space Mountain when I noticed these:
Under the 'In popular culture' subheading -
* 8 out of 10 people say they have shit themselves on the ride
* Space Mountain is the only ride in the world where the safety restraints are made of semen.
* Most couples break up during the course of the ride because of te trials the ride demants each person go through.
And under 'Attraction facts, Magic Kingdom', it states one of the past sponsors as Kevin Federline. (?!)
One last thing you might already have seen: ( Collapse )
The following statements about Quakers (The Religious Society of Friends) are true:
I'll comment with the proper answers tomorrow; I'm just curious about what people know on the subject.

What is this command, and where does it go?
(Windows XP, since i presume that matters)
Anyway, I was just wondering what questions you think they will ask me?
Like my favorite hobbies?
Some obstacle that I went though?
How I would describe myself as?
Why I want my position?
They are fairly "young" does that make any difference?
Would wearing black slacks and a black blouse/button down be appropriate/or too much?
Also, is it rude to ask how many other people gave in applications/applied?
2) What is your favorite restaurant?
the hot one, the fat one, the mommy, the princess, badass, etcetc
Normally when I stop work and I go back for winter there they don't have me file a new I9 until it's the new year. however, since my address changed, should I fill out new tax forms? Or since I can still get the mail at my old place it's not a big deal?
I read this from the IRS website and it says I can just put my old and new address on the tax return so I don't think it's a big deal, but I just want to make sure.
The more annoying thing is that my address is going to change again in July. I didn't anticipate moving out of the apartment I live in but it totally sucks.
Other than being a pain in the ass for me to have to fill out forms every couple of months, is this going to screw up my tax return or anything else legal and possibly annoying? It doesn't matter if it's sent to my parents' house because they can always send anything along to me, but are there any repercussions to changing my address?
What's the origin of the phrase "[Object As] and [Object Bs] and [Object Cs], oh my!"?
It's beginning to irritate me, so I was wondering who to blame.
i ask because the vast majority of us seem female. Are all the boys hiding? or is it just LJ?
Is this even appropriate? How do I word this paragraph in my cover letter in a professional way?
"Upon reviewing the (Name of University) Jobbank, I noticed the job listing for a Receptionist position, but also noticed that the www.nameofcompany.com web site is not yet developed. If you do not currently have someone in line to develop your company web site, I would like to apply for the position and I am available to meet with you at your earliest convenience to discuss this possible opportunity, my qualifications, and my portfolio with you."
I'm just not sure this is even appropriate considering their job listing is for something entirely different.
I must admit I groaned so loud I think I shook the stuco loose at my house when I first heard... but the previews I've been seen... it actually looks like it could be good.
We were thinking a music video, but are open to any other ideas, too. The video should be health-related, but "health" is used in the broad sense of the word - we have speakers doing everything from kickboxing lessons to talking about hate crimes to representations of teens in the media to former drug addicts to sexual health.
Students are aged 10 - 16. There should be no nudity or overt sexuality and profanity. It should be between 2 and 5 minutes long.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a video to show?
I have blue eyes myself, and a friend of mine told me that blue eyes change shades with your mood. I think I've noticed this a few times, but it may have just been my imagination, so I thought I'd see what you guys think. :)
(this is probably just a stupid question, but that makes it all the more interesting to ask, in my opinion).
Or any other ideas as to what I could get?! I wanted to get a star because he's always referred to him as his 'angel watching over him' .. and I thought it'd be neat.. I remember seeing (somewhere) a place where they actually gave you a picture of the sky with your start highlighted.. any help is appreciated.
It's called 'Bianca' (or features the name Bianca prominently in it). It was played before a Death concert in 1993 in Massachusetts (it's recorded at the beginning of the bootleg). Chuck Schuldiner picked it out and it's a 'mellow' song. But keep in mind this is a song death metal fans are referencing, so mellow to them is a bit...subjective. It could be Queens of the Stone Age mellow, or gregorian chanting mellow, I'm not sure - not metal, though. Any idea who it's by and where I might be able to find it?
Altavista says that it translates to, um, cuentale.

2. I was watching that BIG BAD BUGS show on Discovery HD last night and any time I see a creepy crawly that is really creepy (like that massive centipede), the skin on my back and neck and EARS feels all icky...why there? Is there some medical-type reason, like you are scared so it sends nerve impulses to your back??! That makes no sense...anyone know?
Wikipedia says they'll try to eat the eggs, but the ones that hatch will hatch in 1-2 days.
The tank is 3 cherry barbs, a suspected-to-be-blind female dwarf gourami, and a little crab.
Do I need one of those net-breeder dealies?
And.... anyone else have anything bizarre happening within ten feet of them?
edit: How do birds have sex? I think in my mind one of them would have to be on its back, for their birdy cloaca bits to reach eachother, but somehow that sounds not right, and it's not exactly something you see happening very often.

2. If you loan one out, about when do you expect it back?
1. I usually have it back in no more than four days.
2. I loaned a DVD to a friend about a week ago. He said he'd watch it that night, and I've not heard from him since, much less got my movie back.
What should I do?!
I know there was a birthday post a couple days ago, but I'm way too lazy to figure all that out. ;)
2. What horror movie 'gimmick' scares you pretty much every time?
3. When someone says 'heavy metal', what bands or images come to mind?
4. Do you find that people with serious emotional/mental problems tend to be more quiet and reserved about sharing them or very loud and vocal about it?
5. Let's say someone who you would consider a 'best friend' or very close to it opened up to you and told you secrets about themself that were very personal. It becomes apparent they have a lot of issues. You're the first person they've trusted with the information. Would that make it easier or harder for you to 'dump' them, so to speak? Why?

So does anyone know of an author who writes historical fiction or non-fiction, probably dealing with some sort of war, whose name sounds similar to Jeff Sierra?
Can you watch:
a) An episode of Seinfeld
b) A movie with Mel Gibson
c) A movie with Tom Cruise
d) A movie with OJ Simpson
e) An episode of Baretta
without thinking of the scandals they (Michael Richards and Rpbert Blake for a & e, respectively) were involved in? Does their involvement in any way stop you from watching these shows/movies? Is there any entertainer that you have disliked because of their actions OUTSIDE of their "professional" resume? Does your view of an entertainer personally impact how much you enjoy their work?
I want to make it run my msn web-based account.
What do I put for my incoming and ougoing server? Do I want to use my global inbox if I want to access it from other places besides this computer?
What are you doing on the net on a Friday eve. during Holiday Party Season?

2) Excluding the default, how many themes?
3) What extension or Greasmonkey script would you like to have, that you haven't been able to find?
4) Is Firefox your default browser?
1) 21 (Uninstalled Ajax Yahoo! Mail since I use YahooPOPs to access that account now)
2) 4 (Noia 2.0, Littlefox, Modern Modoki, and Outlook 2003 Blue)
3) A script that lets you drag and drop text in LiveJournal and JournalFen like you can in IE. (I suppose if it's that important, I can use IE Tab, but I don't want to!)
2. How far along into your relationship?
3. If you broke up tomorrow, who gets the pet(s)?
People who say they aren't going to break up, kindly fuck off
What is your default email client?
If you answered "Other", what program?
If you answered "web-based", what's your primary?
