i like to live on the edge

(no subject)

Just out of curiousity I don't know if you guys will know or not, but I was eating a lemon the other day and my dad started to say something to me about since I can eat a lemon or sour things than I must like something. But right when he went to say it, he stopped. So it made me think it was something bad. By any chance have you all heard of that before? Like if you like sour things or lemons than you like alcohol or having sex? Those are just my theories. Idk, it was pretty random & I probably just confused ya'll, so sorry if I did. =/


Most obscure question I've ever asked.

More than five or six years ago, a beauty product company had these little aromatherapy jars.. It was like a bunch of little bath-bead-like pods that each contained a scented oil, and you twisted the tip off and applied the oil to your pulse points. The pods themselves were in a round jar and separated by scent (relaxing, energizing...).

I'm pretty sure it was Oil of Olay, but I'm not positive. I'd like to find them again, or something similar.

Gift Recieving

It's my birthday! (Was, technically. I've been playing my Wii into the wee hours. ^-^)

When you recieve gifts you don't like, how do you react (considering that you're opening it in front of the gift giver)? Does it depend on who gave it to you?

I decided to try making chili tonight for the first time. I found a few recipes - online and through friends - that sounded good, and figured I'd do my best to combine them into a version of chili that sounded tasty to me. The only thing is - I don't really like beans, and I generally eat around them when I'm eating chili. So the final version of chili that I made tonight had maybe half of a can of pinto beans, and nothing else. It still has tomatoes and spicy ground beef and onions and other spices. But this got me to thinking - is it still chili, if I leave out one of the main ingredients? Or am I just now eating fancy ground beef soup?

How do you like your chili? Are any ingredients must-have in your opinion?

Question about a Sigur Ros song...

There's a song played in the movie 'The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou', at the end when everyone's in the submarine. Apparently the song is by Sigur Ros and is called 'Staralfur', and it's not available on the 'Life Aquatic' soundtrack.

I cannot find it on iTunes. Does this song go by another name, perhaps? Or is there anywhere on the net where I could download this song for free? *cough*might one of you have it and feel generous enough to send it to me?*cough*

the midnight special

Last night I watched an infomercial for the CD collection from the show The Midnight Special... I loved most of the songs, and I wanted to get them from Itunes instead of ordering the CD every month.... so I looked up the CDs online and can't find track listings anywhere... it is like a time life sort of deal, but not time life.

Can anyone point me to a full track list?  THANKS!

I just finished making a Dr Who scarf that someone who frequents a message board I'm a member of. When I agreed to do it, we never agreed on a price, because I didnt know how much yarn, time, etc it would take. That was a year ago. I had to take an unexpected break due to a severe Carpal Tunnel flare up. So I dont know how much time I actualy put into this thing, seeing as the making of it was spread out over a years time.

The materials cost at least $10, and the shipping is going to cost close to $10 as well. What do you guys think is a good price for it?

Here's a picture of it:

My iPod is fucked up. I moved all my music to my husband's computer, and I went to update my iPod this morning. Basically, the iPod had to completely sync with this new library, and it erased everything on my iPod and went into the process of re-adding everything to my computer. My iPod's battery died about 3/4 of the way through it. I thought "Okay, well, I got 75% of my music on the iPod, so I'll be good for today."

WRONG. I got to work, and there are 7 tracks on my iPod. SEVEN. That's it. WTF, man??? Can anyone tell me what's going on?

After I had a conversation with my brother's friends, I mentioned that I quite enjoy a good beer and a game of football (English football, not American). They had differeing opinions on this.

One said that a girl like that would be the best girlfriend ever, because she wouldn't bitch at you to turn the football off because she wanted to watch Big Brother or Eastenders.
The other said that it probably means you're gay because you're pretty much dating another man. Which is pretty silly, I think. I think he just meant that it was wierd though.

Which one do you agree with the most?

I live near one of the Scientologists super-secret end of the world hidden bunkers. My husband has been on a tour (as an officer so they know the layout in case they are needed to check on something). He says it is made out of concrete and ready to withstand WW3, nuclear attack or a 10.0 earthquake. 

I think they are breeding the zombie army in the bunkers, waiting for the day to unleash them and take over the world. They might even be breeding a "super race" of TomKittens to take over the world in one of them. What do you think they are doing in them?

Just a quick couple of questions, before I wander off to lunch at my son's school:

How old were you when it stopped being fun to have your parents come to school? (things like Parent's days or field trips)

I have no idea how old I was, both of mine had jobs that didn't allow for time off during the day. I think my mom came to lunch once when I was about 7, and it was still cool...

For the parents out there, have you ever wanted to tell your child's teacher to stop asking you to send stuff to class?

Over the past 2 months my kid has needed a tub of dipping caramel, a shirt, a jar of penut butter, and a load of random other stuff. Enough already! You had the longest supply list of any teacher in the school, it's time to start teaching within your means, lady!

If you watched the Billboard awards last night, what did you think?


You're in a band. It's struggling, but you release a new album, and one song in particular gets some airplay. The song has a nonsense title that someone thought up while stoned. It's a minor hit, enough where one topical comedian uses the song title as a reference to anti-semetic hate crimes. Due to that reference, the song becomes an anthem among skinheads and anti-semetic groups, who buy your cds en masse and show up in large groups at your concerts. Your band becomes linked to the anti-semetic movement, which is unfortunate, but your album's gone gold and you're selling out every show. Your merchandise is moving off the shelves, and record companies are lining up to sign you. The rest of the band goes along with the fan base, and shaves their heads, to promote their success. You're offended and bothered by this theme, but you're making so much money and enjoying the rock star lifestyle, you don't say anything. You just do your job and keep mum. Your band has become infamous the way Marilyn Manson had become infamous. Your venues have grown from small clubs to concert halls and stadiums.

One day you walk out to do a show, and you notice it's SRO, and wall-to-wall fascists and skinheads and other anti-semetics. You spy a dozen Nazi flags flying. Your band has always flirted with the dark side, but now it's finally been swallowed up whole. Your moral dilemma heightens when you receive two bits of information: the rest of your tour has sold out, and every band member will pocket $2,000,000 if they do every show (10 shows remaining)...and there was 2 incidents of violent hate crimes in the town you just left, on the same night you performed, and 3 in the town before that. The rest of the band isn't as troubled by the negative association. "We just play our music. However they interpret it, it's not our fault. We're not haters. We're just doing our job"

Do you stay for the long haul and walk away filthy rich? Or do you get out now with your morality somewhat intact?

Probably a stupid question...

I just put my dog's new rabies tag on her collar - do I have to keep the old one?  Would a case ever come up where I would have to prove that she had it in the past, or do they just care that she has it now?

I know this probably seems like an obvious question, but I'm always afraid that if I throw something away, I'll need it for something in the future. (You should see my storage area!!)

Tenacious D Show

My friend had two extra tickets, and asked my husband and I to accompany her to a Tenacious D show tonight (isn't she awesome!?)... I've never been to one of their shows before, so I'm kinda iffy about what to expect.

I mean, I've been to a lot of concerts and know there's two distinct types - sit down and stand up and freak out (examples - Tori Amos was def a sit down show, because she tells stories and stuff, U2 was a freak out show; especially for me, LOL). I figure D would probably be more the sit down show because every time I've seen them on TV, they talk quite a bit during the whole gig. But I don't know if that's just because it's on TV.

Someone please give me some insight! Thank you in advance.

PS - Before anyone says they hate D, well, I'm just excited my friend thought of us and I secretly want to dry hump Jack Black till the cops come. Yes, I am ashamed, let's move on...

ETA - I've been to a lot of hardcore/club shows as well, I just meant *I* freaked out at U2 because I personally love them so much and couldn't believe I was there. LOL, I didn't realize how stupid that sounded until people pointed it out. :D

How do I express to my cat that the squishy, fuzzy thing I bought is for her to sleep on? I keep putting her on it, but she just gives me a look that says "pick me up again and you lose an eye, missy!"

So it's almost exam time, which means I need more ways to procrastinate. I'm planning on baking some cookies. What kind of cookies should I make?

So, I baked some cupcakes (chocolate, if you care) on Sunday, because I thought I needed them for the Secret Santa on tuesday. Unfortch, I need them for tomorrow instead. They aren't stale or gross or anything, because I've kept them wrapped up well, but I'm wondering if I should frost them tonight just before bed, or if I should wake up early tomorrow and do it before I bring them into school.

Will the frosting be okay if left out on the cupcakes at room temperature for 24 hours or more? Cupcakes last about five minutes in my house, so I've never had to worry about storing them before. I ask because the frosting tub says "Refrigerate and store for up to 30 days" on it, and I'm not sure how long the open shelf life of the stuff is while un refrigerated.

Also, will the frosting get that hard crusty feel to it if left out? I hate that.

Save Darfur

$800 shoes?

Poll #882627 $800 shoes?

If you could afford them, would you be able to stomach spending excessive amounts of money on non-essential items?

Yes, of course. Can't save the world.
No way. Every little bit helps.

I got into a discussion with someone recently re: spending $800+ on shoes or buying $400+ purses...

1. Knowing that any one of us who could actually afford to spend excessive amts of money on non-essentials is a big winner of the gene pool lottery, do you/would you have a hard time spending so much money on said non-essentials? Knowing that the local no-kill cat shelter is waivering on bankruptcy? Knowing that $40 feeds a (one of 2 million+ displaced, genocide-victims) family in Darfur for a month?

2. Does it bother you that celebrities go on and on about how impoverished XYZ is and how people need to be donating more... when they own 6 cars and 4 mansions?

My answer:
Since I was a kid I've always keenly felt that I was "undeserving" of my lucky landing into a nice, middle-class American family. Knowing that it was only chance that landed me there, I also know that if I'd "lost the gene pool lottery" I'd wish someone would help me (i.e., if I lived in Darfur). So no, I could not stomach spending more than a respectable amount of money on non-essentials. I feel that every bit I can donate to local and international causes is a much more valuable use. Some of my favorite charity groups are Doctors without Boarders, MercyCorps, and the local cat shelter. I'm Quaker at heart--too bad there's no local group. :)

2. It doesn't really bother me--to each their own, and I'm glad they are bringing publicity to a huge problem. The person with whom I was discussing this the other day said he has no respect for celebrities who talk about it but still live to the excess.

I just found some thank you notes from our wedding that were never sent. They're addressed and even stamped (although they have a 37 cent stamp instead of a 39 cent one). The problem? Our wedding was 2.5 years ago. I am so embarassed that these never went out, not to mention annoyed that the time it took to write them was a waste. The cards probably constitute about 20% of all the notes we wrote.
So what should I do with them? Pretend I never found them? Send them anyway? Enclose them with the Christmas cards I'm about to send? I'm leaning toward just pretending this never happened, but more creative solutions are also welcome.

Knitster girls unite!

First, imagine that I am that annoying Vickie Howell girl and the "knitster girls" subject will make sense.

Okay, so I am planning on knitting washclothes for Christmas as part of a larger gift. I don't mean dishcloths, I mean actual bath cloths for bodies, not plates.

I am not so interested in the sugar 'n cream cotton because I am hoping to make the washclothes very soft and luxurious.

Any suggestions for yarn? Obviously, it needs to be pretty soft. And not felt-able. Because I want them to be able to be used.

1. Straight women/gay men - What type of man do you prefer?
I prefer the big, strong, burly manly man. The construction worker type. Someone who I can cuddle up in their chest & arms, but will also beat the crap out of any other man who upsets me.

2. Straight men/gay women - What type of women do you prefer?
I prefer the more soft spoken, natural beauty. The type of girl who likes to have a good time, but doesn't end up table dancing in the bar. The girl who can take care of herself, but likes to be taken care of too.

pasta pie?

I was watching the Food Network fairly recently (within the past 2 weeks) and Giada De Laurentiis made something I think she called "pasta pie" I remember she used two sheets of puff pastry, and cut an x in the top. I cannot find the recipe anywhere, I can't even find one of her recipes that looks remotely similar. The only similar one I can find is one from "Molto Mario" and it definitely is not it. I'm thinking maybe it wasn't Giada and that's why I can't find it.

Did anyone else see that one, or have any idea what I'm talking about?

I plan on making something similar tomorrow so I'd like to find the recipe. I'm worried I made it up.

EDIT:It had some kind of pasta, chunks of mozzarella, and pasta sauce in it. I'm sure there was a lot more but I don't remember it very well.

2)Did you sit on Santa's lap when you were a kid? Were you afraid of him?

3)Do you prefer Marilyn Manson's version of Personal Jesus or the original by Depeche Mode?

4)Are you bringing sexy back?

5)Is creating a pop star as easy as applying a formula?

Leasing a car

Hi guys, 
Wondering if anyone could help by giving me some guidance on leasing a car. Never done it before, never owned one either. 
So I'm thinking a used car would be more affordable. What are some things you need to look out for or what are the basic steps really to getting started?
Anyone know a good online resource to look at? 
Even a recommendation of vehicle (i'm thinking small, four door, automatic). 
What if you dont have a lot of monety in the bank? Do you need to put money down or can you just pay month-to-month? Insurance is included in the payment?
Alright, sorry if it's too many questions all over the place.
But I'm trying to figure out how to start the process.

Internet for my Wii!

Okay, I'm about to seriously start cracking some skulls here. I'm trying to set up internet on my Wii and I'm having some issues. It really shouldn't be so hard, and I'm geeky so I don't know why I'm failing. ;(((
If there's anybody here who knows what they're doing, would you please walk me through this?
Just IM me on: word to the mrs

I re-booted my Wii and tried searching for an access point again. Found it! But when I tested the connection it gave me the same error code. W. T. F.
Please please please please help me. ;(

Question 1. More of a "what would you do" type thing.

I got a laptop, and it had a burnt out pixel. I took it back, and this one has one too, right out of the box. Apparently it's super normal for LCD screens. However, I'm still within the 2 week period where I can return it and get a new one, and this time they'll take it out at the store and check it before I take it home to make sure there are no burnt out pixels.

I've already set this laptop up the way I like it.

I went to the store today to ask the tech guy if this was normal, and he said it is, but refunded me $50 for the hassle and annoyance. He said burnt out pixels are one of the top complaints with laptops, and the manufacturer wont do anything unless it's more than 6 burnt out pixels.

Would you take the laptop back, or live with one burnt out pixel?

Question 2. When I switched to this laptop, I noticed now that when I make an entry, I don't get the option to post in a community or change my userpick. Is there a way to change any of it back to the other settings where I have those options?

DTR conversations

I have such an aversion to the term "define the relationship" that I had difficulty thinking of it right now.

For those of you who've had those "define the relationship" conversations, what's the best way to bring it up? Suggestions for ways to start it out?

Is anyone else watching the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show?? If so, does anyone know the name of the song that the choir is singing? "Just a little more love, just a little more peace" or something...


A bunch of random questions...

Because I'm still bored & no one will post any new questions tonight.

1. What's your 'rainy day' movie?
2. Do you like pie?
3. What's 2+2?
4. Do you burn DVD's & CD's?
5. What is your favourite alcoholic beverage? (no matter how expensive)
6. What alcoholic beverage do you usually drink? (because you can't afford an $80 bottle of Wild Turkey every weekend)
7. Is it wrong to fangirl over Bruce Willis?
8. What is your favourite 80's movie?
9. What is your favourite Christian Slater movie?
10. What is your favourite type of porn?

If you've been on any sort of anti-depressant (MAOI, SSRI, mood stabilizer, anti-psychotic, tricyclic, any prescribed medication meant to lift your mood), what kind was it?
What side effects did it have?
Did it work?

So... I am on a family plan with Verizon. There are five of us on that plan, blah blah blah.

Anyway, sorry about the length. I'm just a little frustrated right now- I am so careful not to add extra charges, but apparently I did, and I don't know HOW that happened. :-/
