So my boyfriend's getting me a DS for Christmas. I've been lookng up stuff about games for it, and I'm pretty sure I want Nintindogs and Animal Crossing, but other than that, I don't know.

Care to suggest some games to me? Tell me why you think they're particuarly good.

"By the way, I registered for wedding gift at Dillards and Target. I would be nice if you can contribute something for our start of new life in California. You can find the registry by *name deleted*, wedding in California, December wedding. "

Would you be offended by receiving that sort of e-mail?

Edit -- I'm pretty sure I'm the only person she'd ever send that to. If the wording seems weird, she's Japanese and her English isn't perfect.

If you were born as a member of the opposite gender, but acted about exactly the same as you do now, what do you think your life would be like?

If you had met your best friend (or any friend) as the opposite gender instead of their current, do you think you'd have reacted to them differently or developed a different relationship with them assuming they were virtually the same, and would have treated you just the same, aside from having different parts? What about your spouse/significant other?

If your spouse/significant other changed somehow permanently genders by the plot device of your choice, would you still feel the same way about them?

2. For a take home final I have, one of the questions is almost identical to a previous homework assignment we had. If you were in my position, would you take your already written and graded homework assignment and refine it, or do the whole thing over with a different subject? It seems like common sense to do the former, but I'm afraid I'll be penalized if I do (whether or not this is a rational fear is as yet undetermined).

Downloading phone info...

I have a Samsung SCH-A670 (Verizon) that I need get the contacts off of. The only problem is that the phone was dropped and the display no longer works. The phone powers on just fine and would probably work fine if it still had service, but when it was taken to the verizon store they said they "can't" put the contact list on the new phone that was purchased. I know there has got to be a way to get this info downloaded to a computer or another phone or something... any ideas?

Asthma and anaesthetics

I'm getting my wisdom teeth removed this Friday. :/ Scary as that is (I've never had anything serious, so this is freaking me out!), I have a question regarding asthma and anaesthetics.

I told the nurse at the oral surgeon's office today that I'm an asthmatic, and she said it was a good thing I told her; she said they won't use a certain... something now. Anaesthetic of some sorts.

Is there anything I should know? Possible risks, what to avoid, any asthma-related deaths? Basically, assuage my fears a bit. :)

Yesterday I heard the song 'Brick' dedicated to a girl named Nicki and I felt a bit sorry for her, because either she'd had an abortion or someone was really stupid and now everyone thinks she did. I wish radio stations played Anal Cunt songs so I could get revenge by dedication.

Nude Demi Moore / Epson 7600 printer problems

Car Accident in NY

I came home today to find out that my car was in a car accident without me. :( I was legally parked on the side of a fairly busy street across from my apartment. I have an "accident referral" which is basically a note from a cop that says it was a "PDAA" property damage auto accident and that my car was a third vehicle. My neighbor says he saw the accident (and didn't realize it was my car, the jerk) and said that two cars were hit and mine happened to be in the way.

I called the police station and they passed along a note to the officer who signed the report and he'll call me at some time, apparently.

So! My question: do I call my insurance company? The car is in a drive-able state but damn if it isn't the most embarrassing thing to drive, ever. I have slightly-above-NY-State minimum, no collision coverage. My rates are super low and I can't imagine there'd be any reason for them to go up.

I'm assuming I'll get a copy of the police report from the cop. What do I do then?

So, I have about 30 dollars to spend for 6 peoples presents. (My kid's teachers, and Big Brother/Big Sisters) Not enough for gift cards.

I have bags made of felt with decorations on them and I need to fill them up. I already have a magnet set made of glass (5 magnets in the set)that I made, three ginger bread christmas ornaments that the kids made of foam. We still have to make the snow man christmas magnets to go in the bag too.

I was thinking about adding in nuts, oranges or tangerines, candy canes and ?

Got anything else that can go into the Christmas bag? The bags are about the size of stockings (would fit in as much as a stocking). What else should I get?

What do you do when you don't like one of your boy/girlfriend's friends?

Trying again.

I uninstalled ZoneAlarm about a week ago after it kept causing trouble. So much trouble, in fact, that I had to go into the registry and delete every file related to it in order for my computer to work properly again. I got everything deleted from the registry and my computer runs fine again, my Add/Remove Programs looks like this. A lot of my programs aren't on that list, and there's no Remove option for any program that was installed before I uninstalled ZoneAlarm. Is there anything I can do, save for reinstalling Windows, to get it back to normal?

Why can't Krazy Glue be used on foam? Is it because it will deteriorate the foam, or create fumes... or just that it won't hold very well because foam is too porous?

I have to make a scale model, I'm using foam-core and I don't have any glue. I don't have a car, and the bus schedule blows so it would be an hour-long venture out to a store to find some Elmer's. The on-campus convenience store doesn't seem to sell white glue, only Krazy Glue. Most of my joints are going to be core-to-face so one side of the joint will be foam.... so I'm wondering if I really can't use Krazy Glue. If the only thing is that it won't hold as well, then .. I don't really care all that much.

Thanks :)

My boss's boyfriend had a voice mail message (from an unknown number) that was just excerpts from the song "Don't Cha" (you know, "Don't cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me. . ." and so on).

My question is: If you got a voice mail message from an unknown number with that song or a song like it that basically dissed your significant other, would you tell your SO? Or would you not? Would it depend on the personality of your SO? (My boss is super jealous and so this really pissed her off/made her super paranoid. )

Additionally, is it considered acceptable to send a letter of thanks to a teacher whose class you particularly enjoyed? Is the matter a little different if you will have them again next semester? I don't want to seem a suck up but I really want to let her know she is appreciated, since most of her class sucked [did not show up, did not turn in materials, did not participate] and it is not really a fair reflection of her.

hair dye =[

How the fuck can I get dye out of my hair?

I dyed it last night, with dye that is only supposed to last for 10 washes. I washed it about an hour after I dyed it to try and get it out, and most came out. I can't get rid of the red tint. I have since shampooed and conditioned it approximately 13 times. Right now I have a Frederic Fekkai hair mask on it, because I don't want my dad to notice, and this way it won't seem weird when I take another shower to rinse out the mask.

studying abroad

Can you people help me figure out where I should study abroad?

Concordia University, Montreal, Canada
I live in California. I'd preferably like to go to Europe, but this is supposed to be a really good school, and maybe I'd like it... can you tell that I have very little knowledge of Montreal? Help!

University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
This was my top choice, but the program seems kinda funky. The study abroad guy said it had "mixed reviews"... I'm going to talk to more advisors about it. I'm definitely applying here. Any experience with the university?

University of Swansea, Wales
I know nothing about Swansea or the university. Any info? I'm desperate.

University of Bristol, England
Seems like a cool area. I love the fact that they have a giant hot air balloon "fiesta"... but I still don't know much about the program.

Deakin University, Australia
It's a last resort.

Any information or opinions on these cities and universities would be great. I plan to study Psychology and Human Sexuality.

Edit: I'm actually looking more for personal experiences at these cities or universities rather than just your opinions on where you'd have the most fun... I haven't been to any of the places except Amsterdam. Thanks.

I'm 25 years old and I'm going back to school. (Hooray!)

My previous college work, from when I was 18-19, was... mediocre, at best. I was at a point in my life where I was depressed and apathetic and I hardly went to class. Prior to right now, I have a C average.

But I'm an A student. My ACT score was 30. I'm in a community college right now and I will have no problem making straight A's because I'm going to class and I'm doing all my homework and I'm working very hard. I'm capable of it.

I'd like to transfer to a 4-year institution. One outside of my hometown because I've lived here all my life. But I'm not exactly made of money, either.

Most scholarships are for graduating high school seniors. Does anyone know where I can find scholarships that are available to older/nontraditional students? Or students who did crappy at first, took a few years off, and are now back in school and kicking a lot of ass?
