2) What are some things you and your parents disagree on?

I'm hoping to sell my 6GB mini-iPod on eBay sometime soon (and buy any 80GB). I know no one really has a mini anymore, but it's in great condition and I'm selling it with a case...how much do you think I could get for it? How much would you pay if you were gonna buy it?

I'm filling out college transfer applications and I'm up to the dreaded essay. These are the questions:

Please use this space to provide additional information about yourself so that we can base our admission decision on a combination of your academic credentials and individual merits. We are interested in learning about your goals, values, accomplishments and any special circumstances that you would like us to take into consideration. 

AND

Please provide a personal essay of at least 200 words describing your goals, values, accomplishments, and reasons for wanting to attend Five Towns College.

So my question is...WHAT DO I WRITE??

What are these essays actually looking for? I seriously suck at writing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 

thanks!

1. What are you doing at this exact moment? Aside of looking at LJ. If that's all you're doing, what did you just do?

2. When was the last time someone made you happy?

1. My friend and his friends and I (I am visiting him at school) just ordered a pizza from Dominos, and we're watching the Little Mermaid, and we are hanging in his dormroom. And we are planning on doing Jager bombs, which makes me happy.


2. I am iming my friend Barak right now, and he's telling me how happy he is to visit me at school next month, which makes me quite happy, because we are going to explore nyc, since he's never been without his parents.

Did you ever do that "post an anonymous comment with what you really think about me" thing in your journal? How did that turn out?

I never did because my friends are sweet and would just say nice things, so it's too much ego-stroking for me.

If you pack a lunch for school or work, what do you like to put into it?

What is a flaw of yours that you are completely aware of and instead of trying to change it, you embrace it? Or maybe you don't embrace it and you are just very aware of it.

Have you ever had a dream so intense that it woke you up?  Not a nightmare, but some other kind of dream?

How often do your dreams (of any kind) wake you up?


Let's just say that if a penis-endowed person had walked in when I woke up, I would not be responsible for my actions!

I think I need a cold shower.


Edit: Sorry, I posted my question before I looked at my friend's list.  This is not related to the dreams and church question.  Please don't flog me.

What, in your opinion, is the worst musical of all time? (stage or movie)

--------------------------------------------------------


I'm going to have to go with CATS on this one, folks. With Carrie the musical at a very close second.

my mind is all over the place...

1. How is it logical for it to be legal to put a pet to sleep because they are suffering but assisted suicide is not legal, despite the fact that a pet cannot consent and a person can?
a. If someone you loved asked you to help them die, and they had no obvious hope of relief, would you help them? Would you try to stop them?
b. What if their suffering was psychological and they'd tried all sorts of treatment but just weren't getting better...would help them then? Would you try to stop them?

2. How much syrup do you like on your waffles/pancakes/French toast, if you eat them?

3. What did your parents do right? What did they do wrong?

4. What are you looking forward to?

Another annoying PC question

Okay, so why would my computer just randomly be shutting off?

I'll be typing something or just sitting here staring mindlessly at the screen and all of the sudden - blink - off it goes.  

Overheated internal parts?  Virus?  Gremlins?

What's going on?

[dance] pink side to side

The 5 "W"s, and the lowly "H"...

1- Who (group or single person) can you simply not feel sorry for? Anyone you dislike that much you wouldn't mind if they vanished from the face of the earth?
2- What sound makes you really want to punch something?
3- Where did you last go when you stepped out of the house most recently? Shut-ins can say where they wish they could go. ;P
4- When did you wake up today?
5- Why are you on the computer right now?
6- How the hell are ya?

ETA: Mine!:

1- Everyone who isn't me, currently. Sooo tired of everyone's drama that come along to bug me. That and I'm tired in general so I hate the world right now. ;P
2- People crunching food. Ice is the worse. :(
3- To get groceries yesterday.
4- Too early! 9am! On a weekend! I'm going back to bed after I do this...
5- Was going to try and wake myself up. It's been an hour, to hell with it.
6- See above... sleepy!

First question.

So, there was a dude down here who got robbed, had his leather boots, his bag full of money stolen...

...and his hair extensions.

Now, what I'd like to know, is, if you stole some hair extensions from someone, what would you do with them?

(Ignore the fact you're not a theif, and probably wouldn't steal someone's hair extensions of all things. If you are a theif, just go ahead and answer honestly! :D )

My Answer: If I were a criminal? I'd take the hair extentions, find a dude that looks similar to me, and, sell them to him. Or maybe just talk him into letting me attach them to him.

Or maybe, give 'em to someone who I don't like who wants some hair.

So, if the guy I stole them from walks down the street, and sees someone wearing them, and recognizes them, I'm off the hook. :D And the evidence is gone from me! XD

Last night I had nightmares and soon I'm going to be heading off to go to church, get some breakfast with my dad and go to rehearsal. In honor of my plans for today, here are a few questions.

1. What was the last dream you had? How often do you remember your dreams? How often are they actually nightmares?
2. What kind of church-like activities are you involved in, if any? If you go to church, how often do you go?
3. What's your favorite breakfast food? How do you like your eggs?
4. Are you in a play right now? Who do you play? How close is your performance and do you think you'll be ready?

Flea Markets & Easter Baskets

1. Have you ever been to a flea market? When was the last time you went to one? What did you buy?
Yes. I went to one about 6 months ago, before that I hadn't been to one since I was like 3. I bought an old record to turn into a bowl, it was only $1!

2. Will you be getting an Easter basket this year? Will you be making one?
Assuming I haven't completely stopped talking to my mother's side of the family by Easter, yes. My aunt makes me one every year, apparently she started buying stuff for it right after Christmas. I might make one for my dad.

moderate tl;dr but i promise it's interesting.

1. i was in bed this morning, not wanting to get up because i've got a cold. it made me think. i hypothesize that if there were a surgery that could remove the passage by which the nose and the throat were connected (and then connect the nose somehow to the lungs only, and the mouth/throat to the esophagus only and block off it's connection with the lungs,) that perhaps people wouldn't get sick from colds. would the nose still get clogged? and if yes, would we still get sore throats? i know that most sore throat problems are caused by post-nasal drip, so obviously such an operation would stop this problem, thus it would be much less likely that one would suffer from a scratchy throat. and, it would make us unable to die from choking incidents related to swalling food improperly. i assume that since this is already not being done, there are plenty of reasons why it's not feasible. lacking complex knowledge of human anatomy, i don't know why. what do you think the reasons are? edited to add: if i wasn't so addled with sick i think all the obvious answers to this question would've been obvious to me, and i never would've asked. i am proud of how retarded my brain has become. lol, i'm going to sleep.

2. do you prefer margarine or butter?

I have a few very thick, filled photo albums. They're all of my old friends and I doing random things when we were 13 through 16- getting our noses pierced, wandering around the mall, sitting on Santa's lap, running around Disneyland...

While I'm not friends with these people anymore, I feel guilty throwing the albums out. It's just that they're taking up a lot of needed space, and I have no idea what to do with them. Any ideas?

I'm looking for a new car and have learned not to trust my own judgement no idea where to start. I'll have to finance coz I'm tired of $800 cars that asplode immediately after purchase. I can afford payments up to $350 a month. Features aren't terribly important to me so long as it's safe and reliable, but plain old 4-door sedan is preferred, and shiny is good, obviously. The poll only includes brands I'm seriously considering at the moment but feel free to make suggestions. I'm leaning toward a slightly used 2006 VW Jetta, just FYI.


Favorite car brand, based on manufacturer reputation and/or personal experience:

Toyota
17(21.8%)
Ford
8(10.3%)
Honda
22(28.2%)
Volkswagen
6(7.7%)
Saturn
8(10.3%)
Mitsubishi
3(3.8%)
other (see comments)
14(17.9%)

Anything else to add? Any specific makes and models to recommend/curse to the fieriest depths of hell?

I've tried looking it up, but the DMV site is a mess so I was hoping if any Californians could help me out?

If you ate something at a potluck and found out later that the cook thought it would be funny to substitute breast milk for the regular cow's milk, what would you do? Would you be pissed about it? Would you let it end a friendship?

Do you have a particular coworker who just annoys the hell out of you? Why?

This guy at work feels the need to yell out "Ballin'" (like in that song) every time someone throws something in the trash (I work in a restaurant so this is frequent). When he throws something away he not only yells out "Ballin'" but emulates the throwing motion they do in the video. I know it could be A LOT worse though.

Seriously, why would a person say they have no intention of suing, and then have an attorney within the week?

If you tripped on a curb in a parking lot because you didn't pick your foot up above the curb, would you sue the landowner?

If you were inside a store, and you fell, but there were no spills and no objects on the floor, would you sue them?

How about if your car was hit by a shopping cart in a parking lot on an extremely windy day?

And my favorite, would you sue a store if you were assaulted and robbed outside the store in the parking lot, in broad daylight by a complete stranger (i.e. not an employee)?

More open-ended, what would it take for you to sue a business owner as a customer?

And semi-off-topic, has anyone played Phoenix Wright for the DS? I just picked up a DS Lite this weekend, is it any good? Any other game suggestions?

So, my younger sister is failing eighth grade math, and if she doesn't get at least a C by the end of the year she won't be able to move on to the ninth grade. I've tried working with her and explaining the concepts she doesn't understand, and she says she gets it when I explain it to her, but she can't do it when she has to do it in school. She doesn't seem very motivated to change. I also think she has self-esteem issues, which are probably part of the problem.

What can I do to help her? What shouldn't I do?

Also, have you ever failed a grade or been in danger of failing, or know someone who has? What did you/they do about it? How did it effect you/them?

I, personally, take it as a compliment that someone uses a crappy little icon that I make. When people are polite about it while asking for credit, it's not a big deal IMO. When they go "WAY TO BE A THIEF!!!ONE!!omfg!!" I can't help but laugh, and the urge to use their icons goes way up.

In regards to the recent breastmilk vs. cowsmilk post, might I ask wtf is with the answers? Why is it such a disgusting thought to drink milk that comes from a member of your own species and is intended for injestion by certain members of your own species but perfectly acceptable to drink milk that comes from another species which was never meant for consumption by anything other than baby members of THEIR species? That's such a foreign concept to me and really makes no sense whatsoever. If the only issue is with the pasteurization, that's understandable, but it seemed to be very much something else with most of the comments.

Let's say your roommate just moved out, and you know a guy who wants to move in with you, who is willing to pay the entire rent and will do whatever you tell him to. Basically he wants to be your slave. 

He's ugly and obnoxious, but fortunately he's not asking for any sexual favors, or anything really, except that you write up a contract he can sign so he knows what will be expected of him.

First question: Would you let him move in with you?

Second question: What sort of things would you put in the contract? So far I just have doing the dishes, the laundry, basically cleaning whatever needs to be cleaned in the house. He offered to let me tie him up and beat him and have him give the landlord (who's gay) blowjobs, but I'm more interested in having him do things that benefit me, or at least amuse me in some way, like hand over his credit cards or force him to watch the entire Sex and the City series. So, what would you have him do?

2. No, i should absolutely drink more. I always try to, but i have such a small bladder!

3. No. I don't eat enough most days, then occasionally i'll eat too much. Right now it's toooooo much, let's see. 2x pitta bread, pasta with tomato sauce, 2x toast with marmite. ouch carb fest.

in fact, when i'd watch teevee shows and see the kids wearing pajama tops and bottoms, i assumed they were of a higher class than me.

2. do you use a robe? did you always?
3. do you normally wear slippers? did you always?

Math orientation.

Is it strange to do math horizontally? As in, instead of
(y-b)/m = x
y-b = mx
y = mx + b
You do (y-b)/m = x, y-b = mx, y = mx+b?

I still do addition/multiplication vertically(or on a calculator) but for more complex problems it's all horizontal. I never thought anything of it until my math teacher this year insisted that I do all my work vertically because it would be easier for her to follow. Do other people actually do this?
