2) Do you ever laugh in public when a really funny thought pops in to your mind? smirk?
anyway, i want to know what the hell it means. i've checked out some dream interpretation sites, but they all pretty much sucked. is anyone here into dream analysis? do you know of any good sites or things i should check out that might be able to help me..or better yet..can YOU help me? i'm going crazy over this.
Is it the actual presence of smoke that these alarms are supposed to alert us to, or is it the heat of the smoke?
I'm curious because the chocolate smoked about a medium amount and no alarm. O_o Which is good, I suppose, though it did raise the question in my mind.
1. What would happen if you gave insulin, intravenously, to an individual who was not diabetic?
I ask because once a long time ago when I lived in the Middle East with my mom, she was admitted into hospital for high blood pressure, and the staff hooked her up to an IV drop thing filled with insulin and kept her for observation. When we found out it was insulin, we figured someone was trying to kill her and my friends and I busted her out of there quick. This is not so unlikely or bizarre when you remember the Middle East's respect for little things like international human rights and freedom of religious worship and whatnot. My mom was likely a target because she kept helping out Arab Christian converts and stuff that is generally not good for your longevity in that part of the world.
It makes for a great story. Plus proves that my mom is totally awesome. Tiny, but awesome (she's four foot ten). Fortunately she lives up in Washington state now, where she only has to worry about bears, lions and her Subaru falling off the mountain on the way to church.
2. While we're on this wonderful topic brought to you by boredom, sleep deprivation and office broadband, has anyone ever tried to deliberately kill you? Why?
And a completely unrelated question: are hygienic hippies ok (meaning, in your opinion, are they a good kind of people)?
What would you grab if your residence went up in flames?
Has this ever happened to you?
I really want to get one of those flame resistant lock boxes now. I hate dreams like that.
Anyway, I would grab my sons photo albums and his baby book. As well as my purse. (containing my wallet, cell phone, ipod.. the important stuff haha) Depending on how much time I had, my computer too. Omg thats such a scary thought. Ive never been involved in a fire.
How many weeks of school do you guys have left?
14 on Monday, baby.
2. What sort of computer do you use at home?
3. Was there any sort of advertising at your school? For instance BP donated computers to my school district (or maybe they just donated money to the state) and so we had their logo hanging in our computer lab.
EDIT: So what's this Channel One thing, guys?
Or just want to lie to me and say they're from Puerto Rico and make stuff up? I don't care. Either one works.
There used to be a cartoon show on Nickelodeon (I think) about a young boy whose dad was obsessed with cheese. In one episode the boy and his dad go to the supermarket and the dad proclaims "and we'll get some cheese!” I think they also have a small brown dog, but I could be wrong. Long story short- they are at the supermarket and the boy spies a young girl he likes, in the end the dad embarrasses him by doing something involving cheese and creating a scene in public (i.e. falling over and knocking a display over in the process..you dirty minded individuals) Anyone know? My brother and I are going crazy trying to think of it, we've been saying "camembert" in the dad’s voice all morning and I must know.
Did your schools do Book it! when you were younger? Are you fat now?
Do you agree that Book it! promotes obesity by telling kids that they should only read with rewards in mind, and personal pan pizzas are the best reqard?
Did your school use a different reading incentive program like accelerated reader or other things I don't know about? Did you get rewards for reading books?
For everyone else.. Have you ever participated in a long race like that? (This one is about 7 miles across the city.) Did you walk or run? Did you take pictures of naked people, too?
When you poop, do you ever take your laptop into the bathroom with you and do stuff while you poop?
Are there any people on your f-list that hate each other? How do you deal with it? Do you choose sides?
Karen and Rachel are two American-born-and-raised women. They are not related, and they have never met, but they are both the same age and are so similar in appearance that they could pass for twins. Karen has spent significant amounts of time living in Europe, Africa, Asia and South America. Rachel has lived in Sioux Falls, South Dakota her entire life. Based on this information alone, which woman would you prefer to have lunch with?
Thanks in advance for answering :-)
How often does someone with DID typically lose control and switch to another personality? Are there certain triggers (like extreme anger, or just seeing something on TV that triggers them) or is it totally random? Are there certain signs (like violent headaches as an example) that someone is about to lose control or does it just happen without any warning?
I'm trying to be as accurate as I can with this, partially for the sake of having accurate characters but also out of respect for people who have DID. I don't want to glamourise it at all, because I've seen that done with things I suffer with and it's not nice, so anything you can give me would be awesome.
2. When you eat out, do you usually get the same thing or mix it up?
3. Are there any restaurants that you're a regular at?
2. WHAT WILL GET RID OF THIS BLASTED COLD?! I think my sinuses are clogged too.. Just been throwing back ibuprofen for the headache.. also, I have no money and have just been popping Vitamin C... any ideas?
3. What wierd things do you make with potato chips? I like salt&vinegar chips and mustard sandwiches. Deeeeeeeeeelicious.
I saw the Trailer Park Boys movie!( I was like the last one to see it. DAMNIT.)
I signed up for a hotel on Priceline, but now I don't need it. Am I screwed or will I be able to convince them to give me my money back?
adding and editing for clarification...
Has ANYONE ELSE been able to get out of a hotel from priceline?
I was extending a business trip, so I had a free ticket, now it's been canceled so I no longer can afford to go on the trip an no longer need the hotel room.

2)Should you be able to shoot someone who is trying to rob you in your car or place of business?

My wife has an Ipod mini, approximately 2 years old. I recently got an Ipod Shuffle - when I went to download songs to the shuffle I got a message that I must upgrade to the latest version of itunes. We have heard that updating when you use the older mini's causes problems...... is this true? Any advice for upgrading on an older ipod??
UM YES. The mod at adayinmylife is the most frightening piece of um.. shit? ever. The rules are sooooo bloody tight. I just posted an image and got yelled at because it didnt "sum up my day"... even though it clearly did. And it's all reinforced and posts get deleted as soon as theres like a tiny mistake. It's pretty pathetic.
I'm currently searching through google but I'm only finding places where you can get 8 x 10, 4 x6, etc.
I live in a 2 bedroom apartment, the main bedroom being where I sleep, the 2nd bedroom being where I have my 'creating area', where I do tons of crafty things, including jewelry making. There is also a bed in there for guests. Last time I had company over, 2 of them decided they wanted to fuck. In the bed. Nasty, leaky, bloody, smelly sex, in that bed. I accidentally walked in on them, and they left such a disgusting mess, and didn't offer to clean any of it, we don't even SPEAK to them anymore, because they blatantly disrespected my house, me, my fiancee, and my daughter. Not just because they left their sex juices all over the place, they locked themselves in there the entire weekend, among other things. I'm all about fucking, having sex, intercourse, whatever. But if you are going to do it in someone else's house, keep it clean, and if you don't, clean it up. Now, I can't even bring myself to go into that room. I have no idea why. It's totally unlike me, I'm not a prude of any sorts, it just makes me disgusted for some reason. This is totally out of character for me. What the hell can I do to get past this?????
What is the last thing that disgusted you?
What is the last thing you ended a friendship over?
ETA: Meaning to get past it so I can be in that room comfortably again. Also, there is no other place in my house I can have my 'area' set up.
2. Does anyone know of any active online communities for writers- particularly short story writers*? .. Either LJ communities or other communities.
*Not those fan-fiction things.
I have a six-year-old niece that has reached the "Why?" stage of life. What are some good, age appropriate books that explain her body and how it works, and just how everything works in general? She's smart as she can be, and curious, and I want to be able to give her the resources to find the answers she wants and needs.
I thank you all very much.
I never really collected things growing up, but last year I started a small collection of Dunnys from various designer toy stores. 8 isn't really a good collection, but I love all of them.
2. How often do you get paid?
3. Have you seen any of the tourist attractions or Wonders of the Modern World listed here. (under tourist travel wonders, underwater wonders, natural wonders or the NEW seven wonders.) Which ones?
4. Do you do all your banking online? How many checks do you write now, in comparison to before you started doing everything online?
5. I'm sure this has been asked before but not anytime recently. If you use StumbleUpon, what's the best website you've found?
Do you regret having kids?
Do you regret having them when you did?
DO you want more kids? How many?
Are you child free?

Do you make fun of nerdy or brainy people? Why?
What is your IQ?
My friend told me she was 10 Weeks pregnant and last night at 3am she had a miscarriage..Today she's at work..Does this sound like a Lie to you?
She is known to lie all the time..IT's getting on my last nerves...
What would you say if you were me? Now My cousin had a miscarriage and had to stay in the hospital and have other things done to her. I think they let her out the NEXT day.....
What are your thoughts?
Do you mention it to someone when you catch them in a lie? Do you expect to be caught if you lie?
Do you think it's a bad idea to tell someone that you refuse to be near them until they go to rehab, if they have a problem?
-would your answer be different if this included not going to their birthday party?
-would your answer be different if this person was a family member?
1) Does anyone actually use the LJ layout Cuteness Attack?
2) Does my icon hurt your eyes?
3) Why were iPods invented?
4) When was the last time you had sex?
( Collapse )
edit: Thanks to deviatednorm, I now have a marginally less sucky name icon. Thanks! It's hard to find name icons when your name is uncommon.
2. I know I've posted in here about the ongoing shitty job my carrier does, but that was quite some time ago. Well yesterday we did not get one piece of our own mail, we got all of our neighbor's mail. Today we got 2 pieces of our own mail but they were just junk, and we got 3 of 4 things for some people with the same house number on a nearby street. Now I have had enough of this, but my father is convinced that if we complain about it that it will get even worse. He also claims that people around here have definitely already complained, and that they won't do a thing if we complain. I don't understand him, surely this affects both of us. He gets way more mail with personal info in it than me, so I would think he would really want to do something about it. What would you do? If you've complained about your mail carrier, what was the outcome?
I was just going to fill out the thing on the USPS website for now and see what happens. I told him and he was like "Fine, I hope you don't want us to get our own mail ever again." so I didn't fill it out. I would call or go to the post office but the people who work there speak very broken english making it hard for me to understand them, plus there is always a huge line. I really avoid going to that post office at all costs.
What is something you've found in an odd place? Where did you find it in?
I just got a new computer, and in installing the Sims 2 and the expansion packs I have to it, I found that I seem to be missing Disc 1 of the Night Life expansion pack. I've looked everywhere with no luck. I'd really like not to have to buy it again, so does anyone know of a place where I can download the Night Life expansion pack (or at least disc 1 of it) for free? I still have the manual with the little numbers on the back so it's not technically stealing... I hope...
Thanks in advance!

I want to order a CUSTOM jigsaw puzzle. Any places you can get HUGE jigsaw puzzles made to order? I'm talking something like 4'x4' ....yes, feet.
You are at a pub with a friend, having a beer. When you get ready to leave, a group of guys starts talking to you both so you end up staying because your friend seems to be having fun. The guys offer to buy drinks. You are driving so you have no other drinks but your friend does. You end up talking to one of the guys. He seems pretty insecure (calls himself stupid, actually says that he has a small member O_o, etc.), but he's fairly nice. He shares something about one of his friends that should not be shared with girls you've just met. He also talks about tennis. You've never played. He suggests getting together to play sometime. At the end of the night he asks for your phone number. You've told him that you have a boyfriend (you really do have a boyfriend, who lives in another state), but tell him that if he wants to play tennis or something platonic that it would be fine. You are certain NOT to lead him on. You give him your phone number.
The next week, you get a phone call. Someone says "hello, beautiful." You ask who it is, but they say "oh sorry, wrong phone number" and hang up. You're fairly certain it was that guy. The voice sounded the same. All throughout the week, you get a series of calls where when you answer, the person hangs up. At the end of the week, the guy from the pub leaves you a message asking if you want to hang out and gives you ALL of the phone numbers where he can be reached. You are mildly creeped out.
What do you do?
2. How long were you together before you were married?
3. How did you know that person was the one?
4. What were your biggest fears about getting married?
Stephen Sondheim himself sounds pretty positive about the project: "Sometimes a story or stage production has to wait a long time until the right people come together to turn it into a motion picture. That's what has happened with Sweeney Todd and I'm excited as well as confident that it will be a first-rate and startling movie."
Are you excited to see Burton's adaptation of Sweeney Todd?
Have you seen Sweeney Todd on stage, or the DVD version?
Do you really think that Sondheim would allow Depp to sing Sweeney poorly?
What are you most looking forward to in relation to the movie?
2. Does it creep you out when someone calls their child the love of their life?

The first time I did it, I thought it was this big deal, but then, when I went back to him. . I just realized I wasn't the one doing the adultery, so why worry about it?
I'm asking as a friend says they did not. And my google searches fail me.

I feel better now.
(Take that as you like, byah! :P Not expecting serious answers, HAVE AT IT!)
2- Do you remember being a kid? How far back? (I feel bad cuz I can't remember further back than about age ten ... Bleh..)
3- Did you ever babysit to earn money, and not just as a favour to a parent or other relative? If so, did the experience make you lean more/less towards the idea of having kids of your own? ;P
a) a slot in your front door, or
b) an actual box near the street outside your house? [ETA: or a box attached to your house!]
2. In which country do you live?
I do believe it is wrong (and it's virtually impossible that I will ever think otherwise), but it just occurred to me that besides high risk of birth defects between opposite-gender, fertile partners in an incestuous relationship, I'm not clear on why I feel, along with most other people, that consensual incest is unacceptable. I feel it's immoral, but I do not yet have a sufficient explanation as to why it's immoral. I guess I could also say I think it's unnatural, which it basically is and always has been, but being unnatural is not the same as being immoral. Also -- in an article I just read, the writer mentioned the concept of "confusing relationships."
When I speak of consensual incest, I'm thinking mainly of the most "severe," in regards to proximity on the family tree: parents and children, siblings. Also, I suppose, aunts/uncles with nieces/nephews, as well as grandparents with grandchildren, are all looked upon with similarily high levels of disgust because of the additional age gap that gets nonrelated sexual partners skeptical looks as well. The only incestuous relationship that has a bit more room, to some people, are those between cousins, whether first or second, etc.
if you babysit/babysat at any point ..what was your worst experience or the worst thing the kids ever did?
Just off the top of my head I have 24, Just the 8 of us, and My 2 dads.
What about movies with numbers in the title (and not just numbers saying it's the 2nd/3rd in the series)?
Uh, I can't think of any at the moment.
He said it was about a black family moving into an underground railroad house. The house was full of secret passages and there was a ghost and an evil old black guy who lived in the woods. You find out that he used to work at the house and his son is dressing up as him and scaring people.
Do you know it?
2) Do you regret it?
3) Did you do anything really really stupid?

I chew my lip or play with my tongue ring or bite my nails, so to keep from doing that I chew gum a lot.
What is something you do when you're bored?
I try to beat old video games/set new records.
Do you like board games? If yes, what is your favorite game? What game(s) are you horrible at?
I like Life, and Trivial Pursuit. I'm horrible at Pictionary. Everyone assumes that I'm awesome because I draw all the time, but I take forever to draw anything and always lose :(
2)What sort of frozen/ice cream treats do you like?
3)How necessary is it (to you) for there to be a chocolate fountain at a party?

What do you do to counter act that feeling of being "unbalanced"?
Maybe I'm just antsy for spring and should buy some flowers or redecorate...
I mean, this community averages somewhere around 150 posts per day (so sayeth the recent archives), and that's sans comments. As for me, I'm usually just procrastinating like mad, but DAMN, people!
Update: It was in the Movie 'Running with Scissors', oops! Issue resolved, thanks guys!
(The three I mentioned do not.)
Today I got a speeding ticket. The officer told me if I took the class and got the points taken off my liscence, that my insurance wouldn't go up.
If this is true, then my questions are:
a.) Why did my insurance go up for two tickets, 5 years later, when I took a class for one and got the points taken off?
b.) If I take the class, and pay the ticket, will anything still go to the insurance company or is it just not a possibility to keep this from my mother?
