Dreams

I was thinking about my dreams, and how I tend to not remember them. The exceptions are dreams I have after dawn- I seem to often remember those.

It's odd, because when I have post-dawn dreams, I'm not all the way alseep. I know I'm in bed and not waking up (often because I don't have to) and the dreams just sort of unspool. They are not lucid in the sense that I'm in any sort of control, but I know that I'm dreaming. Does anyone else have that experience? Dreaming without being all the way asleep?

What's the oddest dream you've had?

This morning, I had a dream that was set in the Jericho universe. There was an ocean near the town, so a bunch of the townies decided to go see what was out there. Nevermind that Jericho is in KANSAS and there is no ocean within a thousand miles of the place. But Jericho tends to play fast and loose with geography (and logic), so really, it made as much sense as anything else in that show.

So, inspired by the "why is incest wrong" question --

Let's say you meet someone, there's chemistry, you just click, this could be love, things are getting serious, then damn, you find out you and the object of your affections are related. What's the closest your familial connection could be for you to consider going with it? E.g. cousins, fifth cousins, his great-great-great-etc-great-grandfather in 1580 is your great-great-great-etc-whatever-uncle... How close can you get?

A recent episode of 30 Rock had them freaking out and breaking things off when they found out they were third cousins or something. Personally, I thought they were seriously overreacting... Though put in the same situation, who knows, maybe I'd be squicked too.

Why are my pictures opening in Gimp with so much extra noise? It's only pictures I took yesterday, and it's all of them. They open like this straightaway, so it's not an issue of my having saved them with too high a compression rate. (Edit: It's not just Gimp. The noise is there if I open the file in Firefox or Paint, too.)

So my boyfriend is pretty dependent on weed and alcohol, and he has surgery on Wednesday. He'll be under anesthesia for about six hours. He's not supposed to drink or do drugs for a week (or more) beforehand, but he's completely disregarding that and is doing them until Tuesday night.

Anyone know how much that increases the risk of something going wrong?

Kitten Problems

I have two kittens and they are not getting along.

Kitten 1 is about 7 months and been living with us for a month. We got the other one last week, Kitten 2, she's about 7 weeks old.

The problem is, Kitten 1 absolutely hates Kitten 2. She hiss and growl at Kitten 2 and even the scent of the Kitten 2 (she used to hissed at my hand if I just touched the 2nd kitten). The Kitten 1 got better in the sense that she tolerates the smell but not the actual kitten. However, we thought she was going to attack Kitten 2 earlier today when the Kitten 2 ran into Kitten 1's room.

Kitten 2 doesn't seem to understand yet that Kitten 1 hates her and she just sort of wants to watch Kitten 1.

My question is, is there any hope for them to get along? Do we need to find a new home for one of them? Or can they eventually get along? What should we do to make them start being friends? The whole reason why we got a new kitten was so our first kitten can have a playmate.

If there's a better place to ask this, please let me know. Thanks.

First of all I'm sorry for my bad English, I'm from Europe.

Owwwkay I have an obsession with taking sentences from poems, movies , uh just everywhere but then pulling it out of his context and personalise it and give it another meaning and more meanings , changing it hmff just what I want it to mean.
What am I doing here? can't explain it in a normal language ... I know I just do it because I can't find my own words to explain feelings and just ghaa I found it hard to create my own sentences :ss
like when I read 'pillow problems' ( love Lewis Carrol ) it's actually abouth mathematics but I use it in my diary to express that I can't sleep and so on. Stuff like that.

Does anyone know if there's a name for what I do, or explain it in a better way ??
Are there other people here doing this?

I found this :
"Humpty Dumpty claims to be the master of meaning:'When I use a word,' humpty Dumpty [says] in a rather scornful tone, 'it means just what I choose it to mean-neither more nor less'(238). He has command over language, taming personified verbs and adjectives (238), as well as taming anyone foolish enough to interrupt him( 242)." *

2- If you were in the above situation (let us pretend that happens in real life), would you throw your kid to the aliens and run for it? (CFers, I know some of you would throw all children to the hordes, be nice, and pretend like it's your little sister or something ;P)

3- Were you a whiny brat when you were a kid? Would you have fed your 4-year-old self to the aliens?

4- If you were the aliens, what would you eat alongside the dish of whiny bratty child?

A friend of mine told me it takes four months to get to know a person (relationship-wise). My mom said it takes a full year. Obviously, you can never know a person completely, and you keep learning about them the longer you know them, but these two people were talking more in terms of knowing whether the relationship was going to last a while or not.

How long do you think it takes to get to know a person you're dating? (and by this I mean, again, know that this is a relationship that will last a while if things continue as they have been). (also I understand it varies per person, just give me your initial reaction, please).

What is your best friend like? How did they become your friend? And then how did they become your best friend?

Mine is kind of crazy and creepy and he stalks girls that he likes and goes off the deep end when it doesn't work out. But also he is great, sometimes he comes to my house when he's drunk to give me cake. Together we like to drink lots and dance (like ravers!) to Sinatra. He wants to be a composer and/or a conductor. A lot of times we read eachothers thoughts about the stuff that happens when we are together and then we laugh as much/more than that monty python scene where the guy writes the funniest joke ever then dies laughing. Other times he makes me laugh just by laughing himself (even if its at nothing). He is overall pretty great.
We became friends when our social studies class went to the zoo in year 8 and he helped me avoid puddles and run away from our class group to look at the tigers. We became best friends last year at a party when we went upstairs to play pool and had some amazing conversations.

Best Friends.

Lets say that you have a best friend. You have been married for 4 years to a man who basically handles all the expenses of the running of the house (utilities, mortgage, food bill, etc.) So any money you earn is yours to do with as you wish.
Your friend gets married, has three kids from a previous marriage and her situation is that she goes to College full time and her husband, like yours, handles all of the expenses. The difference is, her husband spoils her with material things....giving her full reign to shop with his credit cards, buying her jewelery and telling her how beautiful and wonderful she is.
Your husband, having never been the most communicative type shows his love by basically busting his ass in a job that allows you to pursue a job that although it doesn't pay alot is spiritually fulfilling and taking care of you so you never have to worry about things.

What would you do if you were starting to feel inferior compared to your friend?

Transfer essays

So I need to write an application essay for New York University. I am transferring there at the end of this semester, and I need to have the application in by April 1st. I have all the needed documents already sent to the school, except my application. My problem is the essay. I have no idea how to start it. I want to make a good impression so that I get in, as it is the only school that has Gender and Sexuality as a major for undergrads. This is the essay requirement:

Please discuss your interest in transferring to New York University. Explain your reasons for wanting to leave your current college or university (or if not currently in attendance, why you left the last institution you attended), and describe how you feel your educational goals can be better achieved at NYU.

Does anyone have any hints or tips on how to start an application essay? Or a good web site that has examples of good essays? Anything would be a really big help. I'm a good student, but I know the essay is what people are really looking at.

Thanks in advance!!

I've had OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, if you don't know the acronym) for a few years now, approximately three. Well, some of my friends know about it and think that doing things that aggravate it is funny.

How do I tell them that it isn't funny and it actually upsets me?

I've tried being blunt and even saying that it wasn't, but the idea just doesn't seem to sink in. I usually just get mad and leave the room, but I know that doesn't really resolve the issue.

He took out a packet of ramen noodle, opened them up, put the little noodley block in a little plastic container and set it aside. And a few minutes later he opened it up and had cooked ramen noodles. I'm assuming I must have missed part of this process, but what just happened?? I mean, damn, I want some self-cooking noodles!

2. I can do this weird...thing...I have no idea what to call it. It's sort of a vibration that feels like it's just behind my eyeballs. It makes a pretty loud vibrating rumbling rushing sort of noise in my head. I can do it entirely at will. I used to assume everybody could do it, but then as I got older I realized I was unusual. Can anyone else do this? Or does anyone know what I'm doing? Am I eventually going to vibrate my eyeballs out of my skull or anything?

Okay, for my parenting class I have to make a book, a childs book. Mine is about numbers, well THE number six. My last page says

"Kevin can say goodbye in six different languages"

Does anyone know how to say, or rather WRITE goodbye, in punjabi or urdu, because i like punjabi as a language, and think it would do a world of good to have my languages a little more diverse, than just french, spanish, german, etc.

They say you never forget your first love.

1. Who do you consider yours? The person you had a real relationship with, or someone you had an enormous crush on for years and years? How old were you?

2. How often do you think about him or her now?

3. If it was someone you dated, did the reasons that you broke up have any effect on how often? Explain, if you want to.

4. When you begin a new relationship, how hard is it for you to adjust to the new person's way of handling conflict? their sense of humor? or any other aspects of their behavior?

4b. Did you fall in love quicker or slower?

So I passed the group interview and got called back for a personal interview.

It's my first 'real' job interview, since when I sat the interview for my last and only prior job it was only a formality.

What sort of questions should I anticipate? Do you have any tips for presentation, things to say/not say? Ways to combat extreme nervousness?

I am starting a new job tomorrow morning and I just realized that I need two forms of government issued ID.
I have my driver's license, but I don't know where my birth certificate is and I don't know where my social security card is, either (bad, I know).
I think they're both in a box at my mom's house-- Do you think they'll fire me or something else for not having two forms of ID tomorrow? I can probably get them by tomorrow afternoon, but I work bright and early in the morning.
Gah. I'm stressing out about this.

1. Do you completely blank out sometimes? Like people talk to you about a conversation you had with them but you have no memory of it?

2. Why is my cat trying to battle my dog?

My Answers:
1. For the past year there have been a lot of lapses in time and it's getting pretty annoying. At first I thought it was Ambien so I stopped taking it but months later it's still happening. I just thought of it now because apparently I called my sisters friend last night at 4 in the morning telling him to come over. I told him to just hang up on me if I ever call him again.

2. Because she's crazed. She's flipping around in front of him, stopping in front of his face, and then she runs away. Lather, rinse, repeat.

I just broke my ankle and tore a ligament (not completely in half, but I'm a little afraid about the inner stability of my ankle). I got a plate and screws surgically...installed? but I'm not going to be doing anything high-impact at all for the next 5+ weeks. In fact, I'll be in a walking cast for the majority of that time (for those who don't know: a walking cast = a cast you can walk in and remove for showers).

I have been pretty sedentary for the five days post-op and cannot handle this lifestyle any longer, especially since two weeks ago I was running, serving tables, walking at least two miles a day to and from public transportation, running up and down lots of stairs, etc.

SOOOO...can anyone suggest any exercises that can be considered cardio but that are NOT high impact? I lead a pretty active lifestyle when I have two feet, and because of the drastic drop in activity that's gonna happen, I kinda need exercises that would even make me lose weight as opposed to maintain, so as to compensate. Also, exercises I can do in my home and not a gym, as no tengo dinero.



Thanks kindly!

Yum yum!

A question for dinner-time.

1) Are you left- or right-handed?
2) Which hand do you hold your fork with?
3) When cutting with a fork and knife, which hand holds which?
4) Do you think other-handers ought to hold it a certain way?
5) When you're cutting, do you prefer to use the edge of the fork or a fork and knife?
6) Where does the silverware sit on your plate when you're not holding it?
7) ... or when you're done eating? If yes, how?

1. Do you like to smoke only when you're drunk? I do, and I find it disgusting when sober.

2. Does birth control really make you gain weight?

3. How do hang a huge poster straight when you don't have a yard stick and need to use nails? I have no way to match up the nail holes to the holes in the back of the mounting.

Threesome?

1. Who was it with? (not names just basically how you knew the people)

2. Were there romantic feelings involved? With who?

3. Did it change anything?

4. How did you feel afterward?

5. Would you do it again?

6. Was it generally a good or bad experience? Not necessarily was the sex good.

To those of you born in the 80's and before..do you find it bizarre that people who are 16 (or possibly 17)were born in 1990 and that they probably never used a computer that used floppy disks?

*edited* I meant the floppy floppys..not the small hard disc ones.*

What makes you feel old?

macs and pcs and wow, oh my!

i've always used PCs, and i just recently bought a macbook. besides being super excited and feeling a bit smug, i'm curious as to what i should know about the switch over.

what are some secret-y cool things that macs can do that you've discovered? is getting parallels worth it, or should i just download boot camp and live with restarting? granted, parallels would most likely be a birthday present, so cost doesn't mean much to me at the moment.

does WoW run well on a macbook (2.00GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM-2x1GB, 120GB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm)? i opted for the 2GB, as i've heard the graphics on the macbooks are very RAM dependent. if the frames are kind of slow, what options should i disable to get the speed but the best possible quality?

and how was your day?
