What was the last thing you really wanted to say to someone, but didn't?
It's because you always go on and on and on about it.
I'm putting together a mix CD of songs that are so bad they're good. What would you contribute?
1. What color are your eyes?
2. What color is your hair?
3. How tall are you?
4. How much do you weigh?
5. What is your favorite part of your body?
6. What is your least favorite part of your body?
post photos if you want
I'm moving out this weekend. I don't have much stuff as all the apartments I've lived in before, everyone else I lived with already had pots and pans and what not, so I brought my kitchen table, vacuum cleaner, and bedroom stuff and was all set.
And so I pose a question to all of you, what could you absolutely not live with out? I have most basic stuff, but what am I most likely forgetting?
Though it's probably not...anyone know if it's possible to pry the loops out of GarageBand for use in a different program, short of exporting them as .mp3 or something? (I haven't messed much with GarageBand, just enough to know that I like the loops but vastly prefer ProTools, so I don't know the ins and outs of it all too well.)
I lost my voice :(
1)Which one of you punks stole it?
2)OK, now to be serious. How long does laryngitis usually last?
3)Any tricks on making my voice come back faster? I miss it :(
1.) Would you generally describe your life as "good"?
2.) Are you better or worse off than you were around this time last year? Whyzat?
3.) What's the scariest thing that's ever happened to you?
If an 18-year-old daughter of a senator was caught in bed with her (female) English teacher at an all-girls Catholic school, would the US government be able to do anything to the teacher?
Do you ever have a spasm or jerk when you are in bed awake, but drifting off to sleep? Does that have a name? Just to clarify, I'm not talking about when you are asleep and dreaming and something startles you in your dream.
Have you had any interesting dreams lately?
What is your favorite cereal?
Oh, and I've been getting fat because I eat out too much because my class ends at 10:40 and I have to work at 11. What are some healthy lunches I can pack that don't need refridgeration that can be eaten in the car on the way to work? Do you think a wrap would hold up from 7am to 10:40 outside of a fridge?
I am one of those people that eats because I'm bored. What are some healthy snacks I can keep around the house for when I get bored and start eating?
I'm going on a huge pub crawl friday and I'm looking for interesting ways to transform my t shirt. I would just experiment myself but if I ruin the shirt I can't get another one.
Soooo does anyone know of any lj communities or websites that would have good ideas? Or does anyone have shirts of their own that theyve cut up? Thanks!
Are bill collectors/credit card companies allowed to call and harass someone at their job?
I have a friend who has become very depressed and negative lately. Before trying therapy, is there any sort of self-help he can do? I've tried encouraging him to think differently about bad situations, but is there a website with a plan or steps to take to change negative thinking?
Has anyone managed to make themselves less negative and depressed just by changing your way of thinking?
1. Is there a disney movie that always makes you cry? Which is it?
Fox and the Hound
2. What is the saddest disney song that you know?
Either I will go Sailing no More, or When she loved me as sung by Michael Crawford
3. ( Beauty and the beast ) Why does no one apparently take notice that the Prince/Reigning Moncarch just sort of dissapears, then reappears 10 years later with very little interest? You'd think that the towns people would still be gossiping about the vanished 11 year old.
Have you had some sort of weight loss surgery (Such as a Gastric Bypass, LAP Band, ect) or know someone who has?
If so, how much weight did you/the person you know lose?
I had a gastric bypass done when I was 15. At 15, I was 296 pounds. I have currently lost 140 pounds and I feel great!
This post is inspired by last night's episode of House, MD.
You have two people, both of them disabled. One has no use of her legs, but gets around in a mechanical wheelchair. The other has full use of one leg, and barely any use of the other and must walk with a cane.
Who gets the closer parking spot?
Also, any thoughts, comments on the episode are most welcome. :D
Guys, do you shave/wax your butt?
Girls, what's your take on male butt hair?
How can the Canadian government justify spending more money on collecting student loans than on the actual student loans themselves? How is it fair that they charge interest daily when every other financial institution only charges it monthly??
Do you think sizism actually exists? If so, do you think it is a legit prejudice? (legit as in "true"--like the prejudice is actually well-founded)
What about fat acceptance organizations? Do you think they should exist or do you believe that they do more harm than good?
1. Did anyone here drop out of school? (Specifically college)
2. Do you regret not graduating?
3. Do you think it makes a difference in the long run?
Do you think the kids on GUTS came to the show with that nickname or Mike O'Malley picked it for them? Today there was a girl on it called "The Predator" but she was a cheerleader and the nicknamed seemed really odd.
If you were to go on GUTS, what would your nickname be?
What event would you dominate?
What event would you suck at?
A simple question. Presuming that President Bush is a complete idiot, would it not be justified to say that even an idiot can graduate from college?
[Remember, the magic word is presuming. This is not political propaganda to view the president as an idiot. The fact is he has a reputation for being one, and that's all]
1a) Do you receive a lot of accidental "bottom of the bag" phone calls? If so, what is your name?
1b) If you are not one of said people, what is the name of the person that you call accidentally the most?
(a)Yes. My name is Alex.
(b) I call Aida by mistake all the time.
(Edited to add a title to try and make the post more coherent.)
1. For those who wear make-up, where did you learn how to put make-up on?
2. What's the difference between someone who looks frumpy or has 'let themself go', and someone who is just comfortable not wearing make-up or getting dressed up?
Have you ever had Mono and felt okay?
Everyone I know that has had Mono said they felt like they were dying while they had it. Yesterday I spent some time in the ER and they think that I have Mono. They won't know for sure until the bloodwork comes back but they are pretty certain that I have it. But I feel fine. I'm not overly tired, I have headaches but not bad ones. I just feel pretty normal.
1)What is something that always makes you nervous?
2)How much can you bench press?
3)When you see someone smoking in a movie, do you find it attractive, disgusting, or neither?
Does aromatherapy really work? I'm stressed out and I can't sleep. I've tried over the counter stuff for the sleeping, but it doesn't work. I've seen the candles and the bath stuff, so I thought I'd try it.
Also..if you have kids:
Would you send your child to someone's home daycare if you found out they were asking for items needed to run the daycare from a site like Freecycle?
good french/spanish/italian rap....
suggest away :)
What is the strangest deep fried food you've ever made/eaten?
Did it taste good?
An 18-year-old friend of mine passed away a few mornings ago. His funeral mass will be tomorrow morning at 10, and it's advertised in the paper. We weren't very close, but I knew and liked him and considered him a friend. His girlfriend is also a close friend of mine. I plan to attend the viewing hours, which are tonight.
I know this varies greatly depending on many factors, but would you consider it appropriate for me to attend the funeral? Any thoughts on this at all?
Edit: The funeral was this morning, and I did attend. Thanks for everyone's input, it might have seemed like a dumb question but I'm clueless as far as ettiquite and things for this sort of situation, so I just wanted to make sure.
You're a pot smoker aren't you?
Should I buy a white Nintendo DS or a pink one?
Does pedophelia exist in the animal kingdom?
Or is it against animal instinct (since animal sex is for procreation) to have sex with an animal that is not yet sexually mature.
Bow ties (on any humans or other animals): yes, no, or maybe?
What tv shows that are out on disc are worth watching? I end up renting a lot of them online and have run out of ideas of interesting shows. So, we have rented Babylon 5, Taken, Battlestar Galactica, John Doe (well, I taped it off of Sci Fi) but I am coming up short with other things to rent. So help me out. What are you suggestions?
Why do girlfriends get so upset when you sleep with thier mother??
I mean....whats the big deal?
is there some sort of "gift card exchange" website, community, forum..etc?
i'm stuck with a 50 dollar gift card to a music store that doesn't exist around here/even if it did i wouldn't want anything from it, and 100 dollars to jcpenny that i have no idea what to do with.
is there any other way to get the money off of these cards? or trade them for something else.. ?
i doubt it, but i thought i'd give it a shot.
If a cat falls from a ceiling and no one is in the room, did the cat really fall from the ceiling?
Why is Ulead Video Studio 7 randomly being a fuckstick and deleting the sound off of videos when it converts them to a .wmv from a .mov?
I just spent two hours in the doctor's office for a physical. It was one of the worst experiences I've ever endured.
My question to you is this...
Which is worse:
Routine physical, where you get probed and violated everywhere...
Regular dentist check-up, only to find out you have five cavities?
Personally, I'd go for the dentist anyday.
Branching off from the earlier Marilyn Monroe Question, and based on the idea that some conspiracy theorists believe she was killed by the Kennedys:
Which to you is a more disturbing or disappointing thought:
1. That one of the most beloved and revered leaders of our country could have been behind the death of one of the most beloved and revered women of our country,
2. That you can be be amazingly beautiful, rich, influential and adored by many many people in the world and still be suicidally unhappy?
How do crackers help clear up nausea?
Why can't I watch the latest episode of Heroes on nbc.com? I have done it before! It won't load :(
I need my Heroes fix!! I missed it on Monday (comes on too late) and I will be out to dinner on Friday for the SciFi showing.
WHY? OH WHY DO YOU DENY ME MY HEROES?!?!?!?
Do you ever get junk mail that is oddly representative of what is going on in your life at that moment?
For example: Back in the AOL days I was watching The Exorcist with some friends and I got up to use the bathroom, stopping to do an email check. In my inbox I found an email from Regan44(The name of the little girl in the movie)and this freaked out my friend so bad he made me take the movie out, put it into a box and leave it outside till he left.
Have you ever been to the emergency room when away on holiday? Why?
I just got back from Scotland. We were there for three days, and the one day we have free I spend in the ER with a horrible chest infection.
Have you heard the news about peekvid? >:(
-I'm pretty damn mad right now.
so i'm hopefully starting a new job soon & they said i'd work 4 days a week & get to pick what day i want off..
so which day would you choose to have off, friday or monday ?
[i wouldn't work weekends either.]
For some reason, when I go to My Documents or any other folder, when I click on a file, hold the control button and click on another file, I'm not able to select all of the files in between like I used to be able to. I tried restarting, as that usually fixed the problem when I had it before, but it didn't fix anything. D: Suggestions?
Okay, nevermind, I don't know WHAT I was thinking. It IS the shift key, but it's still not working for me. WTF. D:
in your own opinion (not legal), when does "gah, leave me alone!" cross into "stalking"?
(ps: see the icon? that's what my stomach is doing right now D: )
Wwho was your most frustrating teacher you ever had?
Last year (year 9), my English teacher couldn't properly speak English. She often had issue pronouncing terms and so for one semester my class sat in dead silence because the teacher couldn't tell us what to do.
Generally, do studio apartments allow 2 people to live in it, or do they allow only 1 person?
Was Marilyn Monroe really a bimbo, or was she only pretending to be dumb?
Viruses make you sick, right? But what if there were viruses (okay, virii, whatever) that actually made you feel better? What if a virus made you feel happy, or made your eyesight sharper, or your hearing more accute, or something?
Is there any scientific reason why this could not be possible? It seems to me that making the host more healthy could allow the virus to survive better for longer.
Of course, it could already happen and we might not know, because we don't look for a virus if we're not sick.
Anyone know of any fiction written around this idea, or any studies actually done on it?
i love hearing the reasons behind a band's name. these are the only ones i know. i have no idea if any of them are true or just rumors.tell me ones you've heard!
belle and sebastian - characters from some children's book i think..?
greenday - they quit high school to form the band or something and after telling the school principal their plans, he responded with, "you're going to succeed when there's a green day in hell."
jimmy eat world - the lead singer, whose name is jim, had a little brother that drew a picture of him eating a globe. underneath the drawing, he wrote "jimmy eat world."
kid rock - after doin' his thaaang, some guy shouted out, "look at that white kid rock!"
limp bizkit - they were stuck on a name and finally one of their friends offered this stupid suggestion. it just stuck.
marilyn manson - he wanted to portray both glamour and horror: marilyn monroe + charles manson.
postal service - the members weren't physically together, so they ended up mailing each other ideas through letters.
righteous brothers - after performing, a marine yelled out, "that was righteous, brothers!"
1. How do you feel about your physical appearance as a whole?
2. What would you change about your physical appearance, if anything?
3. What is your favorite part of your physical appearance?
Who own's Uggs?
Do you wear them all year round? If not - when do you wear them?
I ask this because I just bought a pair of uggs and I see people wearing them all the time. I bought them so I wouldn't get frost bite on my toes during this frigid Chicago weather.
What is the easiest way to make icons? Are there any special software programs that I should use?
1. When I play Solitaire or Spider Solitaire on my computer I have a lot of games where there's no moves left (but all the cards aren't in order yet). Is that normal? Am I doing something wrong? Or is the game just statistically... shitty?
2. At the end of The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy never did solve her problems with the mean old bicycle lady, did she? Or did that lady magically/correspondingly melt, too, when the witch did?
3. Where are cows from? I mean, kangaroos originate from Australia, giraffes are from Africa, and the Great Spotted Woodpecker is from Europe/Asia. Are cows from... Wisconson?
4. Who's your cell phone carrier? (If you have a cell phone.)
Is there anybody here who absolutely abhors anything vanilla-flavored?
1. How long have you been w/your SO?
2. How'd you meet?
3. Last argument w/SO was over what?
4. Do you and your SO get along w/your respective families?
5. Do you and your SO get along w/your respective friends?
6. Anyone (family members and/or friends) oppose your relationship?
When was the last time you ate a sausage?
Do you have an iPod?
Last interesting dream you had?
how old were you when you lost your virginity(if you have)?
if you could go back and change it, would you have lost it later, earlier, or at the same time?
This may be somewhat of a weird question but what do you think of text messaging?
my sort-of answer:
See, i usually send one/receive one every so often from friends. Nothing I like to use as an EFFECTIVE form of communication. However my MOTHERRRR, for some whacked-out reason, thinks differently. Every so often she sends me these long, detailed text messages and I don't know why. I didn't even think my mother knew how to send a text message until i got a long text saying how her day went. Just now I get a text message that says "Mama sez hi," which is nice of her, but it's the worst way for me to communicate with her, i mean honestly....
this is probably the dumbest dumb girl question ever.
and i dont want anwsers like.."just tell him you're into him".
so... how do you hint on to someone that you are interested in them as more than a friend, when you are already friends?
Just wondering...is there anywhere besides eBay that non-USers (specifically Australians) can buy Bath and Body Works stuff? The BBW site only has US shipping :(
I had a dream where I opened up a book of poetry and read the first line of a poem. It went like this:
If you hold the moth, you must be prepared to be responsible for its demise.
Then I looked down and I was holding an insect in my hand. My friend told me to let it go, but I hesitated for just a moment. Then I let it go and it fluttered to the ground, dead.
Is that line from something else? Is it reminiscent of anything else? (quote from a real poem, book, movie, song, etc?)
What does that line mean?
What does the dream mean?
Have you ever done something that could be considered stalking? What was it?
Should females be required to register with selective service in the U.S.? Why/why not?
(for those outside of the U.S., this govt agency forms a list of people to use in case of a military draft. as of now it is only males required to register. if you don't register, it would be difficult to get a job/college aid/etc.)
At what point does one need to see an OBGYN? What if you're not sexually active?
Is it really as traumatic as I think it would be?
(To clarify, I'm an 18 yo female, not sexually active, and have never been. I don't know if I should go.)
Hey guys sorry if I asked this already, but it's been driving me nuts.... I wanted to know if anyone remembers a tv show that came on about maybe 4:00pm on a weekday EST (I think on either UPN or NBC). It involved a young woman in the Old West. She had long black hair and was of a fortunate financial position, but she would dress up in leather pants and a shirt and a frilly black mask and be something like a Zorro. She vaguely reminds me of Catherine Zeta-Jones, but it's been a while, so I'm not sure. The guy, a sheriff or something of the sort, who hates her vigilante identity is constantly trying to get her proper-self to notice him. Anyway, does anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?
I want to develop a British accent for work. How do I find a speech pathologist, and how much will it cost me?
