When you stay up late and don't do anything productive, what do you actually do?



I read, drink tea, watch late-night food network, flip through Cosmopolitan magazine and of course do the whole myspace/lj/facebook thing.
Sometimes I play Guitar Hero.

I'm looking for a good pair of comfortable, casual shoes. I don't want tennis shoes, but I don't want anything dressy either. I wear jeans almost every day, so casual is good. The problem is that I can't seem to find a good store/brand that has the style I want in my size. I'm looking for something along the lines of this or this. I've already tried Skechers, but they don't have shoes in women's size 11. I like some of the Ecco shoes, but they're more expensive and I don't know if they're worth it.

Anyone know where I can find a pair of shoes like this? Are Eccos worth it?

Am I the only one that thought the flying creature in Never Ending Story was a dog?  When I was a wee little girl, that's what I figured.  As I got a bit older, I was confused when I found out he was a dragon. 

The reason I'm asking is because this morning, my husband and I were talking about it (we're 24), and he fought with me about how he wasn't a dragon.  So I know I'm not the only one that was wrong at some point about what he was.

Where is the oddest place you've ever slept?
When I was a sophomore in college I went on an impromptu spring break trip with 3 of my buddies to Daytona and we didn't have a place to stay. We ended up crashing in a Days Inn laundry room.

If you were homeless and couldn't get any friends or family to take you in, what city or state would you want to live in?
Probably somewhere in southern California. The weather seems to be nice enough..

Roommate help

My current roommate has to go back home to her country tomorrow, and I'm sad to see her go. She's one of the best roommates I've ever had.

Now I obviously am in need of finding a new roommate to share an apartment with for the next 6 months since I currently cannot afford to pay for the entire apartment alone. I'm a female, but a lot of males happened to be responding to an ad and I'm out of luck with females so far. :( However, I'd give myself a shot and see how it'd go with having a male roommate who's NOT my boyfriend.

For anyone that had any experience with an opposite sex roommate, how did it go? What were the pros and cons? Any other advice would be pleased.

Thanks!

1. What do you look forward to every week day?

2. What do you look forward to every weekend?



My answers:

1. Waking up to a house that isn't too hot, making new contacts at work and following up on projects, eating lunch at Tapatios, playing with the dog after work, watching "Scrubs" re-runs

2. Getting to build things, sleeping in, working short days (usually), exploring Florida.

Last night, I got locked in a bathroom with no windows by a bad doorknob after done using the bathroom, and it took me and my roomie 5 minutes to get me out at last. I got freaked out a lot from being stuck in a small room feeling like I'm being in jail.

Basically the base of the whole thing so that it becomes something that can go on the head. Thanks for any help I may receive.

At lunch with my family on Christmas eve, when the bill came, the waitress had circled (in red ink) the bottom of the bill where it says "gratuity is customarily between 15-20%..."etc.

I'm trying to figure out whether or not this was a bitchy move by the waitress, either implying that we don't know how to tip, or trying to make sure that we paid her 15% (which we always do anyway, not that she really deserved it-she was a crap waitress).

So was this a bitchy thing to do? Have you ever had a server specifically state or mark off that gratuity is usually 15%?

Have you ever noticed what complete and utter LOSERS the people who post on the TWoP forums are?! OMG. I wandered over to read some of the OC forums and I had to stop because the people are such douchebags. Like they all watch every episode 18740381 times and dissect it to the point where it becomes creepy. I left the OC and tried to read some other forums, thinking maybe it was just the OC fans, but no such luck. I mean... how is it that all the people who post there are bat-shit insane? and WHAT is up with "BWAH! You owe me a new keyboard!" lmfao. WTF. bwah??? STUUUUUUUUUUUPID.

Calendars and Spinach Dip (sounds like a bad New Year's party)

Today's Quest: The 2007 Desk Calendar
Requirements: must be a weekly, must be spiral bound, must be funny or interesting, must have big spaces so I can make lots of notes (who is no in the office, when we're closed, appointments, etc), must not feature cute baby animals.
Added Note: The Far Side is the old stand-by option. I'd like to venture away from the wackiness that is Gary Larson (although, I do so love the Far Side).

Have you seen any nifty calendars so far that I should keep my eyes out for? Any favorites?

Unrelated Question: Spinach Dip, a.k.a. The Food Of The Gods
Does anyone else hate those water chestnut things they put in there? I've been taking out the extra onions and water chestnuts and adding in chopped olives and garlic. And let me tell you, I could eat that stuff all day. Except I can't find The Perfect Bread to eat it with. Sourdough? French? What do YOU eat Spinach Dip with?

What are 3 things that annoy the crap out of you?

Mine are (the list is much longer, but I said 3):

1. My microwave, because it beeps every 10 seconds for at least 10 minutes if you don't take the food out right after it's done. Evidently it's afraid you'll leave the food in there for an obscene length of time if it doesn't remind you that it's done.
2. When the sheets keep coming off one corner of the bed no matter what you do.
3. People that park their carts in the middle of the aisle at the grocery store then huff and puff and give you dirty looks when you say "excuse me".

MP3 Player questions

I want to get an MP3 player to use while at the gym and while traveling, but I don’t know very much about MP3 players at all.  I use iTunes for my computer, and any downloading I do into a player will be from that program.  None of the stuff on my computer was purchased at the iTunes store, however. I don’t need anything fancy, and would prefer something that just plays music, no video options or anything extra to have to fuss with.

1) I hope this isn’t a stupid question, but do I have to get an iPod to play the songs I have in my iTunes folder or will most MP3 players work?

2) If I need to buy an iPod, where would be the best place to purchase one?  I’ve heard that there are sites out there where people sell used ones.  Are those sites reputable?

3) If I can get something other than an iPod, what would you recommend?

Thanks for any help you can give!

lame personal-type questions.

Since my computer has been broken for about a week and a half, I'm catching up on all my questions.

2. What color/kind underwear are you wearing right at this very moment?

3. What was the last thing you ate?



My Answers:

2. I'm wearing blue green and purple stripped boy shorts.
3. A bowl of Chocolate Lucky Charms.

DVD Player question

Soooo, the question club.

Do any of you know how to figure out if the DVD player I have is a high definition DVD player?

I bought season five of Smallville in high definition, but it says it won't work if both DVD and TV aren't also high def. I don't want to open it, find out it doesn't work, and then not be able to return it, because that would suck immensely. I've googled the model and although it doesn't say it isn't high definition, it also doesn't say that it is.

It has both Component and HDMI connections, which makes my brother think that it is.

Help? Please? If it helps, I have the LG LDA-731.

TV SHOWS

Now that youtube is cracking down on copyrighted items, where can I watch television shows online for free. I'm looking specifically for Daria, Popular, and Veronica Mars. I think certain lj communities provide help with this but I have no idea where to look?

why do people feel the need to put so much crap on their myspace pages that it causes slower computers to freeze?
how does it make sense to have three songs and a video clip which start automatically when the page loads?
does it prove you're a true fan if you have graphics plastered all over the place, definitely more than could possibly conveyed by simply saying "I enjoy ___"?

This is going to sound retarded, but I'll take the chance:

What are some things I could do for my 18th birthday in Manhattan? I need it to be on the cheap side, because none of my friends have any money (ie I wanted to go ice skating at Wollman Rink, but that's way expensive). One thing I might do is go to Alice's Teacup but we've done that before for other events, so it really won't feel all that special. I want to do something fun, but something that all my friends can do.

Any advice would really be great. Thank you.

Computery stuff

I got a new external harddrive for Christmas.

The instructions tell me just to plug it in, connect it to the computer and away we go!

So I plug it in, connect it to the computer and... nothing.

An icon for it should appear on the desktop automatically, but that's not happening, and when I open the HD folder I can't find it there either.

It's a Western Digital 250GB My Book Essential Edition. I've gone to their on line FAQ, but it just tells me to connect it and it should work. I tried submitting a question but because I don't have an American phone number it cannot authenticate my request and won't accept the question.

I have an iBook G4, if that effects anything.

Can anyone help me? Cheers.

What do you think about the Volkswagon "Safe Happens" commercials?

If you haven't seen one, here's one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-x20ULl1vuM


They all feature two people in a car, driving, chatting about something inane, and then BOOM, they crash, and then it shows them stunned about the accident. Then cut to "Volkswagon. Safe happens. We're safe, buy our cars, etc."



Something about them just doesn't sit right with me. I can't decide if it offends me or not. It just seems like they're taking something serious (an accident) and almost making light of it to sell cars. It might possibly be more appropriate as a car insurance commercial. I'm just not sure about them. That's why I wanna know what you think!

MIT reviewed several question-answering sites, like Yahoo Answers and Microsoft's Live QnA. In order to do this, the reviewer searched the archives for the answer to "Is there any truth to the five-second rule?" (the rule about not eating food after it's been on the floor for more than five seconds, not the basketball rule about holding.) He also asked the two questions "Why did the Mormons settle in Utah?" and "What is the best way to make a grilled cheese sandwich?"

What do you think his findings about TQC would have been?
