I'm moving out on my own and into a completely new city on June 1st. I'm currently looking for an apartment and a job. I'm scared out of my mind- I've never moved to a new city before or out on my own.
What are some suggestions/tips that you have about moving to a new city/moving out?
If you could choose to visit any city west of Chicago (which is most of the country), which one would it be?
What attraction would you most be interested in seeing if you drove across the USA?
(Boyfriend and I are taking a random roadtrip in the early summer, and we have two weeks to pretty much go where ever we want. The only for sure places are Fargo, his sister's house in Minnesota, and St. Louis.)
Bonus question: When's the last time you played Tetris?
What was your favorite mid '90s Nickelodeon show?
I loved Space Cases, but no one seems to remember that one. Catalina FTW!
If you found out that your significant other had previously (prior toyou coming in their life) directed/produced or was the subject of an adult website, would that be a deal breaker for you?
If you found out one of your friends was doing adult web-site work, would that lower your opinion of that friend ? (from either end, being in or producing)
So I heard a song on the radio last night, and I loved it. Of course, I barely remember a thing about it, so I come to you. It was a rock radio station, the song had a really catchy beat, sorta something you could have fun running to. (It reminded me of "1985" by Bowling for Soup, but I could just be crazy.)
The one thing I remember about it is the chorus had the word loser in it, right at the end. Something about not being a loser. I've tried Googling all the word combinations I could think of, but nothing came up. There was possibly the word 'standing' in there too. Something along the lines of, "I'm standing here, but I'm not a loser anymore". I think it was also only a three line chorus.
So if people could post links to song lyrics they think might be it, or lyrics to a chorus that sounds like that, I would be much obliged.
So I'm being lame and kicking around names for a game character.. He'll be invisible, attack/lurk in the shadows kinda guy.. He'll be like a ninja, only, using a rifle. Like a sniper, only, uses a blade also. >.>
I was thinking.. Hidden Havoc.. or something like, Cloaked Carnage.. Something along those lines. Yeah, I'm lame and like alliteration.
What do you think? Any other idea on names? I enjoy "havoc" and "carnage" mainly, and I wouldn't mind something involving "bane".
Help me TQC!
Does anyone have that picture of the guy with the lap top hanging from his...um...stuff?
Double points if you have it as a demotivator saying something like "Serious Man, He's fucking serious"
My cat is my cat. He sleeps with me at night, follows me around at home, and sits on my lap when I'm playing a game or watching television. I pay for his vet bills and paid his initial adoption fee, but since I was 17 when I got him my mother signed for him instead of me, since you had to be 18 or older to adopt a cat. Is it possible to sign the cat over to my name when I (someday, finally) move out? My family also has two other cats, but he's very much a loner and I'm not sure how he would react to being separated from them. Have you ever separated animals after they've lived together for a long time? Did they have a bad reaction to the separation?
For the record, I'm probably not moving out until after college since I'm very much broke :(
if you posted something rather traumatic in your LJ (like a car accident, but no one was hurt) and none of your 'friends' answered or replied, would that make you mad? Upset?

Are you really anal about tagging your music in iTunes (or other music player)?
Yeah, I've been sitting here for a while today sorting by genre, and then fixing little things in artist and album names...I could do this all day and I've spent nights doing this. I have no life.
Does it really bug you if something is grossly mislabeled?
Yeah, it makes me wonder if people know anything about music at all when they tag an R&B song as Rock or an obvious Pop song as Rock.
Ideally I'd have song, artist, album, genre, year released, and album artwork--in a perfect world.
okay so, my brother wants to get a lightning bolt shaved into his head/hair whatever, and he said he saw it on a basketball player on washington state or kansas state (or so he thinks) does anyone know who has it?
One of my friend's ferrets is dying. The poor guy was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy last year. He's had several seizures this morning and she knows he won't make it.
What is something I can do to make her feel better? I'm not really good at coming up with things like this on my own.
This will be the second ferret she's lost within the span of a year. The first one passed away from a poisonous spider bite.

Are there any site layout generators like Thomas' Myspace Editor, or should I just keep working on understanding html?

I was watching Ellen a few days ago, and there was this band on the show that I really liked.. but for the life of me I can't remember the name. I went on the Ellen site but didn't find anything, but I remember the band name having some similarity to the word August. Anyone know who I'm talking about?
Who else has seen The Chumscrubber?

ETA: deleted back stories and the question that couldn't be asked without a 2 sentence explaination. Sorry kids!
I'm trying to sell some stuff on ebay and I just got done making the whole page so now I'm on the last step where it's asking me if I want to make my item "stand out" by bolding the font, outlining it, etc, but every time I hit the continue button at the bottom of the page, nothing happens- the button just grays out so I can't hit it again. So obviously, my thing isn't going through and I've refreshed the page a couple times to see if that would do anything, but it hasn't so I don't know what I should do at this point. Close the window and start over? I don't know. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
I'm having a big clean out, and I'm wondering if cds and cd cases are recyclable?
I have been accused of never being serious.....
Do you take TQC seriously??
Do you take hajiomatic seriously??
what do you wash your face with? are you happy with it?
i'm 22 and never had much acne at all as a teenager, and just in the last year, acne has sprung up on my face. >:| i've gone to the doctor's, changed birth control pills, tried different creams but nothing is working. i use Bioré (sp?) face wipes daily before putting on my make-up and to take it off.
i use MAC make-up, i get most of the vitamins i need, and drink lots of water. i'm completely stumped and would love some advice. thank you!

Who has an IUD?
How long did the stomach cramping last after you had it done?
Do you like it?
is it appropriate/professional for your boss to call you mopey?
your work is not affected by this 'mopey' mood. you are just sad.
okay, i have two cats, banky and pauline. banky is a boy about two years old and has long hair. pauline is about a year old with short hair and obviously a girl. they've both always had their up to date shots and they're both fixed. they're in great health. they've always gotten along very famously, cleaning each other, cuddling, playing, etc (see them in the icon? FRIENDS!).
well today, we gave banky a bath to try to help a bit with his spring shedding. afterwards, all of a sudden pauline is hissing, growling and occasionally swatting at banky! he's not reacting agressively at all, just kind of walking away from her and not growling back at her at all.
we thought it was the smell, so we washed her in the same shampoo, but that didn't help.
we thought it might be because he's still a little wet. but no, that wasn't it.
we tried separating them for a bit, and that didn't help either.
we've called and left a message for the vet, and i've been looking on the internet but not finding much.....
tqc, WHAT IS WRONG?! how can i make pauline not as mad at banky? why is she mad?
what in the sweet world of kittydom is going on?!

For those of you who watch the show Weeds, does anyone know when Season 2 is coming out in stores? I can't find anything on Google.
1. I'm wanting to make sure I understand this right. On Match.com, it's free to have a profile and "look around" until you want to send emails to people, yes? Or do you have to pay regardless? I'm not really wanting to date, I'm just wanting to look around for fun and OKCupid has given me the same search results for the past few months.
2. If you belong to a religion, are you a convert? If you are a convert, why did you convert to the religion you did (in other words, why were your previous beliefs no longer what you believed in)?
3. What am I forgetting to do before I go back to work tomorrow?
4. What time do you get up for work? (I get up at 5.15 and get to work an hour early so I can leave when we're allowed to leave.)
5. Why is it when I buy gallon jugs of drinking water, they taste different? For example, I've been buying Ozarka lately. I bought a gallon of Spring Water and then a week later a gallon of Drinking Water, but they taste completely different (the Drinking Water tastes more metalic) even though they're both Ozarka. What is going on?
6. Earlier today I bought a big bottle of Excedrin. When I got it home and opened the box, I realized the expiration date says April 2007. I didn't open the bottle itself (still has the seal). Can I take it back and get an exchange? If I can't, will it hurt to take it even if it's after April 2007? Normally I wouldn't take expired medicine, but this was a $6 bottle with 100 tablets.
7. If you drink wine, what is your favorite kind? Do you prefer red, white, blush, etc.? (I like white wine, but I'm new to wine. I like La Yunta. Tastes melony.)

I'm named after my dad's old high school crush (whom he's not married to), cute huh?
What's one thing you don't like about yourself that nobody else really notices?
For me, it's definitely my moles. =/ I have a lot of them on my upper body from being an idiot in the sun as a little kid. But considering the fact that I never notice moles on any other person, and nobody has ever stared at any of mine, they must not be that big of a deal..
(I am lucky enough to not have any giant ones that stick quite a bit out of my skin though.)
In your opinion, which country's Vogue is the best/most worth reading?
Does anyone know where I can buy a sublime zip up sweatshirt in a store, not online?

Do you spend time with those friends without your SO?
If you don't live with your SO, how much time generally do you spend together each day?
If you live with your SO, do you ever feel the need for alone time?
I can check the stores around here easily enough, but I'd like to do some online shopping. I'm looking for skirts under $50, preferably around knee-length (as in, no minis). I'm your typical juniors/misses sizes, and want something I can wear to work and/or for everyday in the summer. Anyone have good suggestions for me to shop for 20-something y.o. type clothes, or young women's inexpensive stores that have websites (in the event I don't have that store near me)?
The important question;
I'm on ADSL & for the last month or so my internet connection has been cutting out at least 4 or 5 times a day. When it started it would reconnect almost automatically, now the majority of the time I have to switch off my modem (which is external & is left on 24/7) & turn it back on for the internet to start working again.
So, what the fuck is going on?
The less important question;
I was told by a music teacher years ago that we hear our own voice differently then everyone around us hears it, something to do with it reverberating within our heads or something. After watching myself on video last night I realised how horrendous I sound.
Is our 'true' voice (what everyone else hears) what we hear when we talk or what we hear when our voice is played back to us, such as on video? I have no idea how to even begin googling this one.
Where can I buy CHEAP furniture, either new or used, that's somewhat trustworthy?

3. Will you please describe to me your most favorite pair of shoes that you own or have ever owned?
4. What are you currently wanting?
5. When you see eachother but aren't likely to end up naked or partially undressed, does your SO ever look and see what underwear you are wearing?
1. How often do you feel alone? (just being by yourself)
2. How often do you feel lonely? (sad or put out)
3. Do you do anything about it and if yes what, or do you prefer being without others.
Not often, I have my family around or classmates
All the time, alone or with tons of people around me
Sometimes I really just want to be alone, other times I try to contact others but it doesn't really work out that well =/
Yea ok today was a nice and perfect day, not too hot but still sunny. I spent the whole day at the pool...and I shall pay dearly for that tomorrow. What do you use (or recommend for me to use) for a bad sunburn?

1- Will you whip it right, whip it baby, whip it all night?
2- Crack that whip?
3- Whips: kinky, scary, or over rated?
4- Care for some Cool Whip? Upon what will you take your Whip?
Anyone here gone to the Buffy Sing-A-Longs? What was it like? I liked the show, but wasn't a die-hard fan, but my sister loved it, and I'm thinking about surprising her with tickets. Also, do they keep the subtitles on for the whole show, or just the songs? I'm hearing impaired, but would like to be able to follow it.
