Nude Prints

I have a few nude/semi-nude photos that I would like to blow up into much larger ones. These are digital and I think if I try to do this at my local CVS, I'll be arrested, right?

I'd really like to frame them. They're tasteful but definitely show some nipple

Where can I get these digital photos blown up so I can mat and frame them?

Does anyone know a legal website where you can get mp3s that you can play on as many computers / mp3 players as you want? Do such things even exist?

I'd really appreciate any help!

I just broke up with my boyfriend, who I still love very much and still live with until I find another place. We still get along and all that jazz but heres the issue:

Easter Sunday his mom has a dinner, the usual family thing. I love his family too, and will miss them almost as much as i'll miss him. Should I still go to dinner, even though they know we've broken up? Any other comments?

Edit: Ok, i've cancelled the dinner invite (but have been promised leftovers). Now I get to watch figure skating on ESPN.

So, I've been wanting to really enjoy this summer, and I've saved up enough money so that I can work less hours. Question is, is there a way I can request this, during a time in which I obviously have less going on, without appearing overly lazy/irresponsible to my employer? Is this a valid concern?

i'd try google but I don't know where to start in less than this rather vague description.

Does anyone know what those magic drawings are called that looked like a repetative pattern of something but if you make your eyes go fuzzy and stare into them, it reveals a 3D image?

edit as I found it from the first comment, thankyou :-) So.. by using the first comments link, can you see the image? How quickly?

I can see them straight away, I'd forgotten how fascinated I used to be by this!

Please can you reccomend me an author/book?

I'm going on holiday on Friday and am heading book shopping tomorrow. We have an amazing second hand book shop near my house that has anything and everything, I read a lot so it's like heaven.. i shall take the list and see what I find.
In return I reccomend 'The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets'- Eva Rice. I've just finished it, an absolutely delightful book that I never wanted to finish, alas it was so good it took me no time at all!

looking for suggestions on an audio file for a class

I've been making a website on the Legislative branch of government for a Web Design 2 class (at Florida Virtual School), and I've run into a slight problem. This assignment requires me to insert an "appropriate audio file" into my website (to show that I ... can). The problem is, I can't think of any sort of audio that would seem appropriate for a site on the Legislative branch.

What do you guys think I should do for my audio? The national anthem? Or are there any audio files floating around that ... tell about the Legislative branch?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

It is 5:39AM

Are you hyper, TQC?

I sure am. I just finished writing a ten-page paper for my NEU368 course, but I've still got way more vault in my system than should be possible. I don't drink much soda anymore so all this sugar is kind of crazy. Plus the sushi I had a bit ago. And the fact that I am extremely sleep deprived.

What's the grossest thing you've seen lately?

I decided to take a break and walk around around 3:00AM and discovered that someone had puked the whole way down the hall. It was pretty sick.

photo pricing.

There's this lady that wants me to take pictures of her husbands band sometime next week. I believe they are going to be still shots. In the end, I'll basically be giving her all my work with edits onto a CD so she can print and use what she wishes. (I don't have the capability or time to print and price her through only the ones she wants to have.)

So my question is - from the photographers point of view, what would you charge?

And from her point of view, what would you be willing to pay?

I was thinking 100 bucks. Travel, time, editing. I don't want to over price her, but I'm not going to sell myself out either. Plus, she'll have all my work, for continuous copies afterwards.

I go to my Weight Watchers meeting tonight (shut up, I've lost over 15 pounds, OKAY?). After every meeting, I get something REALLY good to eat, it's my "freebie" night.

So, what should I get?

Favorite candle scent?
I have a chocolate chip cookie candle on my candle warmer that smells AWESOME.

Are you having a good, mediocre, or bad day? Why?
Mediocre so far. I feel kind of sick.

Did you know the chances of your kid being on Broadway are 1 in 11,000, but the chances of you kid being autistic are something like 1 in 156?

What was the last thing you got for FREE?
I got three free subscriptions to Stuff, Blender, and Shape (already get Jane and Maxim) from here, using the code "1free" at checkout (if anyone else is interested). Didn't even have to use my credit card. :) Oh, and you can get the MAXIMUM subscription, I got FOUR YEARS. I signed up under my husband, and my two dogs. :-P Bella is now getting Shape magazine.

Menu advice

So, my husband and I have invited a dear friend and his girlfriend over for dinner. Said dear friend is a vegetarian, which is putting me in a culinary world with which I'm not very familiar. I'm thinking about making this as the main dish (both the friend and his girlfriend loooooove garlic), but I'm unsure as to side dishes.

So, what kind of side dishes can I make with that main dish? What else would you suggest? (And my husband is making a salad already - I just feel like there should be something else.)

Used car salesman
Celebrity publicist

Shady mechanic

Who is the most trustworthy?


Even if it paid well, what would you consider to be the worst job on this list?

Port-a-potty cleaner (working that hose)
Person who scoops the dead animals off the road
Masseuse at a weight loss farm
Person who has to shave the pubic area on people going into surgery
Horse semination caretaker (you help the horse get off, and you gather his semen)
Colonic practitioner (you stick the hose up people's butts)
Elephant caretaker's assistant at a circus (you just shovel pachyderm feces)
Public defender in the country's highest murder capital
Door-to-door encyclopedia salesperson
Call girl/boy (no pimp, but you gotta put out for money)
Professional waxer
Person who mops up at the end of the day in the stalls at a peepshow
Euthanizer of stray animals

Would you do an embarrassing, disgusting job if it paid very well,

1. Do they usually play the previous season's finale sometime before the new season begins? Particularily with shows that end with cliff hangers?

2.  Does Maine get Patriot's Day off because it was a part of Massachusetts when the Battle of Lexington and Concord occured?

3.  Using made up words from tv shows. Yay or Nay?  (for example when people use "frack" or "gorram" or even "shiny" (in the Firefly sense) in every day life).

Going to the movies ?'s

1) Do you think it's lame to go see a movie at the theatre by yourself?

2) If ever, what's the last movie you saw at the theatre by yourself?

3) How often do you go out to see a movie while it's in theatres (by yourself or with others)?

Are you going to see Grindhouse this weekend?

1- I just about choked myself, checking the tag of the shirt I'm wearing... What's the most 'brilliant' thing you've done lately?

2- Any animals in your visual range? Never said they have to be real. :)

3- How many windows/tags are open on your computer right now? What are they? ;P

4- Very specific question: Our xBox360's headset mic has died. It doesn't record. We've tried everything on the xBox website to try and fix it, to no avail. (Unplug/re-plug it in, fiddle with the options within the xBox settings, etc etc...) Any additional solutions?

On Sesame Street today, Ernie was singing a duet of "I Don't Want To Live On The Moon" with a black singer from the late 80s/early 90s (as evidenced by the sweater he was wearing, lol). His voice sounded really familiar, but I can't figure out who it is. Has anyone seen this? Any idea who he is? I tried Googling and YouTube, but I can only find the versions of Ernie by himself.

Ladies:  Imagine that someone offered you a cushy room and all the food you could eat in exchange for having babies.  The following conditions apply:
       -  You have one baby per year
       -  You never actually have sex; a trained doctor will use artificial insemination to get you pregnant
       -  You give up each baby once it's weaned, with the knowledge that it too will have a cushy lifestyle
       -  You have to let people come in and watch you give birth and take pictures
As long as you agree to the conditions, you'll be taken care of for your entire life (even after you're too old to give birth).  Would you do it?

Guys:  Same perks, different conditions:
       -  You have to masturbate at least 4 times per week and let strangers watch/take pictures
       -  You never actually get to have sex
       -  If your sperm aren't good enough for their purposes, you can never masturbate or have sex ever again
Again, as long as you agree to the conditions, you'll be taken care of for your entire life (even after you're too old).  Would you agree to that?

Birthday Argument

Hey all. My son's second birthday is coming up in June. I've already bought 2 of his gifts and my husband and I are arguing about his third.

So far he's got a TMX Elmo and Tom and Jerry plushies.

My husband wants to get him a toddler 4 wheeler.

I want to get him an art easel and art supplies.

Where we live isn't the best place for a 4 wheeler. The back yard is taken up by a gazebo and soon it will have a swingset underneath a canopy (we don't have any trees for shade).

He likes to color on the windows (which I don't mind). I'd like to get him involved in more creative things before I'd let him get involved in more of the dangerous aspects of boyhood.

What do you think? Maybe if I showed him some other opinions on the 4 wheeler issue, he might cave. He thinks it is a great idea because one of his coworkers bought his daughter a 4 wheeler for her second birthday.

Any input is much appreciated.

Rightio. Over the long weekend, i'll be going on holidays with a christian, religious family. I'm athiest. I don't have any problems with looking attentive during grace, or anything of the sort, but i'm not sure about the ettiquete. Anything I should know? Dos and do nots?

I've been doing a whole bunch of lame and boring labs for my ecology students, and I've had it with my lab manual. For the rest of the semester, I'm doing cool labs.. next week, I've decided on a GPS scavenger hunt (geocaching). Do you have any ideas for something cool I could hide? Or if hiding actual objects seems like a bad idea, what should I hide as a marker for them to bring back, and what should the prizes be for finding things? Furthermore, any other cool labs you can think of that would actually be FUN for an eco class? I have a few ideas, but I'd love to hear more.

Do flip flops cut the crap out of your feet?

Are there any brands that won't cause my feet to bleed but look nice?

Why are flip flops so evil to my feet?

Yes, I've given up on wearing them. I'd see a cute pair, buy them, wear them, and be in agony within 30 minutes of walking around.

The few out there that don't hurt my feet are ugly, and not very cute. :(

No clue. Maybe I just have sensitive skin on the top of my feet? Or some irregular gait that causes the straps to rub against my feet a lot.

I feed my dog Pedigree...and the last time I checked ... they weren't infected. But last night and this morning...my dog had really bad diarrhea. So I was wondering if they're still checking up on all the brands? And where I can get the latest list of the infected/bad pet food list? I searched on google but Pedigree wasn't on the list. Am I just being paranoid?

My computer is having trouble uploading. I have the same issue in both Firefox and IE. If I try to upload a userpic, the connection times out. Same thing with Sendspace and similar sites, and Photobucket.

Edit: I'm connected through a 2Wire router to DSL, but my laptop uses the same connection and I can upload fine using that. I have antivirus and ran a virus scan, and nothing seems to be awry.

3. Do you tend to curse more than usual when you are driving? This morning, I called an old man an ass heap. I'm not even entirely sure what that's supposed to mean. I'm thinking it's actually a compliment.

If a rabid mother opossum had babies, would the offspring have rabies too?

How likely is it for a baby opossum, or any opossum for that matter, to have rabies?

I ask this because suddenly a lot of BABY opossums have found their way into my house! This is bad.. My cats have had their rabies shots, but one of my cats just came back from surgery and I don't want him to get mixed up with a opossum. Even if it is just a baby.. Another crawled into my bathroom this morning and went to sleep in a bucket. This is the forth one! We do not know if it is rabid or not. It does not appear to act aggressive or strange. It's still in there. We haven't called Animal Control yet.

But damn, these babies are CUTE! I took pictures of this one. I'm almost tempted to keep one as a pet! But of course that would be very dangerous.. Though I heard of people that have done that.

okay so check it out...im visiting miami for a few days, and i'm looking thru their local free weekly paper thing. i get to the back and see all these ads for escorts and hookers and whatnot...i see alot of them that are pictures of what appears to be a really good looking woman..and then it mentions "10 inches". okay so i guess trannies are popular down here. but my QUESTION IS...and ive always been curious about this...what type of people are interested in chicks with dicks..for a lack of a better term..lol. now i dont know if these trannies are men that have transformed themselves into women, or if they are women who have had functional penises attached..but either way..i dont get it..i mean, i can't imagine a straight guy or a straight woman would want to hook up with one of these...however, i cant imagine a gay man or woman would either!!!! i am so confused!! lol...anyone have any idea about this? i am seriously curious.

I need the internets to decide what I'm going to do with the next couple of hours (before I go to bed).

I was going to watch Spooks, in order to stop myself getting sucked into The Sims (which I've spent way too much time on lately), but I realized I'd recently seen the last 3 episodes I have left.

I've been meaning to rewatch season 3 of 24, and that's the right kind of mood, but the trouble with 24 is that it's just like The Sims in being so addictive you find yourself watching six episodes in a row. OTOH when I Sim too long I have dreams about the fuckers, and I'd rather have dreams about Keifer Sutherland.

I don't have the mental energy to read and my wrists are too sore for more LJing.

Decision in next 5 minutes, plz.

Because the Wikipedia articles are too hardcore for me this evening:

1. Could somebody explain to me, in simple terms, what the difference is between the US Senate and the House of Representatives? I did know once, but it's been a long time since GCSE world politics :) Any comparisons you can make to our Parliament would be very helpful, to give me some context. OK, so I've got that there's a ratio difference, but do they basically perform the same duties? Do they both wield the same kind of authority? Answered; thanks guys!

2. Does the President regularly have sessions with the Senate or the House of Representatives in which he answers questions and fields criticism, like our Prime Minister's Questions? If so, are these sessions made available to the public via TV or internet broadcast?

Any other facts, thoughts or opinions that spring to mind on the subject would also be gratefully received. :)

Many thanks!

What are some places to go and things to do that I should include in my trip down to Miami this weekend?

I used to live there but haven't visited in years. If you've ever gone back and visited your hometown after an extended period, what things changed, and what stayed the same?

I ordered food about two hours ago. I called them after an hour and forty minutes and they told me that the number they called was apparently the wrong number and are remaking my meal and delivering it for free.

Should I still give them a tip for driving out even though it's free? I feel bad if I don't.

ETA: Thanks, ya'll. I probably would have anyways, I just wanted to make sure that I wouldn't get in trouble, because last time I ordered food online, I left a tip in the place where they suggested it online and apparently I wasn't supposed to. So I wanted to make sure that I wasn't going to do something stupid by giving the driver a tip or something when I shouldn't have.

That makes me sound really dumb. I'm not dumb, I swear. :P

so my mother is in new york and she bought a pair of jeans for me at H&M. however, when i asked her what size they were, she says that it doesn't say clearly and that the only thing written on it is 'hips: 27'
i'm usually a 1 (a zero in some brands) and i have no clue if the jeans will fit me or not? if by hips they mean the place where you measure, mine is 31.


2 - what size are you in shirts, pants, etc.?
3 - what's your favorite clothing store?

    architecture in helsinki
[dance] pink side to side

:( Whyyyy!

1- Why are guys' clothes so much cheaper than clothes for chicks?
2- Why do people seem to speed up even MORE at almost-red-lights when someone is waiting to cross in a second?
3- Why can't I remember the original question I wanted to ask here?

What do you think of this car?
I have about $3000 to spend on a car. I LOVE this one, but know next to nothing about it and I'm assuming the parts would be hard to come by since it's old and unheard of.

How common is it for people to regularly, seriously contemplate suicide but never attempt it? What about to never self-harm or indulge in reckless behaviour?

I was discussing this with someone but neither of us had statistics or personal anecdotes on the topic.

Edited for clarification. My bad.
