Today was my last day of school until September! How should I spend my first day of summer tomorrow?
2. Do you pet your cat while you sit on the toilet? (http://www.idiotcomics.com/catsdontcare.gif) What else do you do while you....wait?
3. What is there to do in a small town? I'm tired of watching movies. Bowling is out of the question for me, cause I've got carpal tunnel. And rabble rousing is getting old.
4. How can I flaunt freckles? Hiding them is impossible for me.
so basically i wanna find this website that just solely had names of celebrities in an a-z list and when you clicked on them it had a list of dirt on them, for example i remember angelina jolie having herpes and cameron diaz having bad acne (really?) i know im being pretty vague and no-one's likely to know of it/be able to find it but it's worth a shot, ive been searching for ages now.
it might be one of those 'alt' sites if that helps
I've always been a decent student. I've had trouble with a couple of classes, but never anything serious. This last semester I may have failed three of my five classes. I've tried getting extra help and spending more time on homework and studying, but I know for a fact I still won't do well. The deadline to drop the classes has passed (I wish I knew, but my parents figured I didn't need to drop any classes and tossed out the notice without telling me) so the grades will count towards my GPA.
If I take the classes over, will the grades from this semester still count towards my GPA or will they be dropped?
Would any of you recommend summer class
And somewhat related, when was the last time you screwed up? What happened?
my boyfriend and i are in college. it's finals week. he's leaving tomorrow. he lives 3 hours away from me.
he just told me that he's worried about our relationship during the summer because recently he's noticed that we don't talk about "meaningful things." i agree with him about this and i told him he's right. but then i realized.. i don't know what his idea of "meaningful things" is. i asked him what exactly he meant by that and he said he didn't know. and i don't know either.
so basically our relationship is doomed to fall apart unless we start having meaningful conversations, but neither of us know what that means or how to make it happen.
what is a meaningful conversation, and how is one created?
2. A friend of mine is pregnant with her first child. Should I buy her a Mother's Day card and/or small gift?
3. Do you like Smarties?
I love them. :)
4. What's the strangest thing you eat/used to eat?
When I was little I can remember sitting on my dad's lap with a spoon and sharing with him a big cup of Saltine crackers crumbled up in milk. WTF?
Any other general thoughts or opinions on the staff selection?
Any ideas what I should get him?
what was the best gift you ever recived?
He is an outdoors kinda guy.
He works construction.
Hates cologne because it makes him itch.
I bought him concert tickets last year for his birthday and would rather get him something eles.
We have been together 2 years.
I am willing to spend up to 75 bucks.
I'm trying to get over one myself at the moment and any tips would be greatly appreciated :)
And to avoid the personal gain clause:
Does it bug you when you forget to charge your phone and when you finally do, you have several missed calls and no idea who called you?
It bugs me plenty. I missed four calls from a french area code and I have no idea who the heck they could be from. And it's driving me crazy.
2- When bad things happen to you, would you prefer a whole bunch of little but tolerable things, or one big thing to just knock the sense out of you at once?
3- How are you today?
ETA: 4- Do you ever feel bad when you see a news story that is supposedly a 'big deal', but you just can't bring yourself to give a damn about whoever is involved? I don't mean the whole "omg Paris Hilton is going to prison, waah!" thing. :P
2) What would the other person find hardest about being you for a week?
3) Did you ever get expelled from a school? What for?
4) Do you use stumbleupon? If so, do you like it?

kind of interesting that we have been having so many questions about Vegan breastfeed on here yesterday.
Do you get excited when royalty comes to visit or don't really care?
I think it is great to see her at the Kentucky Derby but other than that, hope she had a good time have a safe flight. I guess that constitutes as a half and half of caring. Hmm?? Maybe not.
I mean, besides the obvious cuddling, sex, dinner, and movies.
Also, have you tried those new Life Savers Fruit Tarts?
If not, don't. They're pretty nasty.
ETA - Okay, he's been sick 5 or 6 times. He has to stop at every second or third step on the way up the stairs. I know he's not getting any younger and I'm going to phone the vet just now and see if there's an emergency thing. Help? Till then?
ETA (again) - Managed to get him to the vet this morning, I didn't think they were open. Anyways, he gave him an injection and some tablets and he seems to be a lot better. Thank you everyone :) ♥
It's depressing to me that I am hardly in touch with people who were my best friends growing up. Even my four best friends in high school and I only talk on rare visits and spare emails. Granted, it's like we were never separated when we do get together, but it is tough! if friendship IS supposed to be effortful at times, I do think it is worth it. Your thoughts?
Do you call or email to explain this?
Please comment below to elaborate.
Anyone know what a peacock sounds like? Is it a bit like a strangled miaow?!
I have had one visiting my garden for the past few months but have never heard it make any kind of noise. When someone was told there was one around they mentioned that they can be a problem noise wise. I have heard some noises during the nigh recently so am now wondering if that is what it could be.

Recently the news (especially here in Seattle where it's happened) has been covering the hysterectomy of a 6 year old disabled girl. She can't move or talk and has no control of her bodily functions. The parents had a hysterectomy performed on her to stunt her growth so that she will be easier to care for. The hospital has recently admitted that this was an illegal surgery because it was performed without a court order. Disabled rights activists are trying to ban forced hysterectomies on disabled people.
Do you think that this was an unethical surgery? Why or why not?
Any other thoughts or opinions on the subject of Ashley's surgery, disabled rights or the rights of the care givers/guardians of the disabled?
Really I'm curious about why people are so mad about it, how people can say that this was not done in the best interest of everyone involved. How is this unethical? I think the parents should be commended for keeping and caring for such a severely disabled daughter at all.
Is a relationship worth it if you have to completely change to make the other person happy?
I'm making about $800 a month. About $300 goes straight to bills. If I want to save up for a car, how much should I be putting aside?
2) I've only been at my new job 2 days but have already witnessed several instances of employee theft. Should I report them? What about if one of them is the bosses son? Would you report them? EDIT: To clarify, I work at a grocery store.
3) Which Homestyle Bake should I make for dinner tonight: Country style chicken and biscuits or Parmesan Alfredo noodles with chicken?

My allergies are knocking me out, and my Target brand "Alavert" isn't working anymore :(
This got brought up last night while the man and I were playing Rummy...when I was younger, there was a card game that my family used to play. Basically it worked where you started out dealing one card to each player. I can't remember if there was a card turned over; I think there was for trump. You had to guess how many tricks you would take that hand, then play. The next hand you were dealt two cards, and so on, up to twelve. I believe it could be played with teams of two squaring off against each other.
I don't know what the game was called, and I can't remember how scoring worked. Has anyone else played this? Does anyone have any info on what it is and some rules I can find? I'd like to teach the man but since I know just the bare minimum, I can't.
...and I'm just generally goofy which may play a part as well.
Is there any real difference between Whoops and Oops? Is one more embarrassing than the other? What's the difference other than the "wh" in front of one of them?
(Hypothetically of course, so ignoring the impracticability of owning, say, a lion.)
I think a tiger would be nice. It could sleep on my bed :)
How long would it take for me to get the details through either way? (I kinda need them for about ten days time)

2)Do you ever shop at yard sales, flea markets, or thrift stores? If so what has been your best bargain/find?
3)What's the worst thing your pet has ever done, and how did you deal with the problem?
Have you tried the new Diet Coke Plus (with vitamins and minerals)?
-Yes, I just had a few sips and now my head is killing me. I will be sticking to my original Coke.
Amelie. We are quite similar in thought and behavior. I laughed during the movie because I thought "Gee, that's something I would do!
2) What is the biggest challenge with dating?
I hate the very beginning stages when you don't know if you're going to be a couple or if everything will end in disaster.
3) What online games do you play?
4) When you play Sims or Sims 2, do you make Sims that look like people you hate and then torture them?
Oh yes! It's so therapeutic *evil cackle*
5) What's your flavor?
My synth (Korg X5D), which is about 10 years old, has been acting funny as of late.
Should I blow $750 of my tax return on a new Korg X50?
I HAIL FROM THE 4-o-5..
2. how's your day going so far? tell mamaRIA all about it. :)
Does anyone know where I could find people whose needs I can help fulfill?
Or, if you don't, what are your personal experiences (preferrably positive) with doggy adoption?
And a tiny update:
And because I know you all care, I finally found a Target with the pink bike! I called my dad and he said not to buy it yet, and that we would go back tonight and he'd get it for me =]
2) Would I be a mean mommy if I gave away all the toys my son plays with that bother the hell out of me?

Why do you hate Ben Stiller?
She also emailed them, and in their reply they gave her a tracking number and said that it will arrive via UPS. I've tried entering that tracking number into the appropriate field on UPS's website, but it gives me an error saying "UPS could not locate the shipment details for your request. Please verify your information and try again later."
I'm just copying and pasting the tracking number from the email they (Sears) gave her, so unless they somehow messed up, the number should be correct. Is there a certain amount of time one must wait after the package has been released from the store/manufacturer before they can start tracking through UPS's website?
Also, what are some good songs to use for a mother/son dance at a wedding? I somehow got elected to pick it out =\
1- Are there any bans on any sort of animal(s) in your country/state/province/whatever? What are they?
2- Are there any bans on specific breeds? Which, if so?
3- Have you ever reported someone for breaking an animal-related law?
4- Do you own any banned/restricted pets? Has anyone ever reported you, if so?
I have found someone's lost state identification card that says on the back "If found, please drop in nearest mailbox for return to Commissioner at: *address**. Return Postage Guaranteed."
Does that really mean that I can walk up to the big blue USPS box and drop it in it? Or do I need to put it in an envelope, etc?
I've also seen this offered on tags for your keys (either Tiffany and Co or the grocery store discount cards). How does this work?!
2. What is your favorite hair style for the hotter months?
3. What song just finished playing?
4. Do you use a calendar program on you computer?
4a. If yes, what program?
5. What is the one thing you are really looking forward to purchasing this summer?

2) If yes, what are your favorites?
3) Do you celebrate Victory Day?
4) Do you have a family member that fought in WW1 or WW2?
5) If yes, did you ever get a chance to speak to them?
6) Ignoring distances, time zones and the like, who is up for a pub crawl with me this afternoon to celebrate Victory Day?

My question is... what is the best way of telling my boyfriend that he is no longer invited to the concert and that I've found someone else to go with?
I don't want to be passive aggressive and immature about it. I just am feeling really eh about him and would rather go to the concert with someone I'll have fun with and not someone I'm pissed at.
Any tips on I might be able to get this sucker out?
Edit: All set guys, thanks!

4. Do you like Baskin Robbins or another place? (Specify.)
5. I need a translation here: "Yai yapologize." ... what?
I can relate to her frustration but I didn't know what to say. So I tried to help her by asking if she'd tried to do different things to make it work but I didn't know what else to say that's comforting.
2) Does anyone live in a townhome? Pros and Cons of you living there? Do you wish you'd bought a regular home instead? Are you irritated by noisy neighbors at all hours of the night?
I'm trying to decide if I should buy a townhome or continue renting or even buy an actual house. I'll be in the town I'm in for probably at least 2 years. I just am afraid I'm going to regret buying a townhome. I also can't afford ones that have all the features I'm looking for, or haven't found one that is in my price range and has those features.
edit: i have 2 journals, this one is just one where i keep all the emails to and from one of my only close friends (hence, anticipatedmssg...s--the last "s" wouldnt fit) i have most of my communities on this one so i can keep track of my closer lj friends journals on my other journal w/o having to scroll back a bazillion pages to read a post.
If there are "personality" actors and there are "versatile" actors, why do you like/hate each/either group?
I think Ben Stiller is a personality actor - he has a certain persona, and he uses the same one in each of his movies - but he has the ability to exhibit some good acting thru this personality (The Royal Tennenbaums!) Same with other actors of the type I think (Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant, etc) - while their character doesn't vary, they are still very capable of giving us honest, emotional, or entertaining performances.
However, the versatile actor who is capable of those things is obviously better (and my prefered mode of work!) (DUSTIN HOFFMAN!)
any idea of what could be going on? i know it's in the right spot and i've tried twisting it so that maybe the notches aren't int he right spot, but i'm sort of at a loss now.
a) The application form asks about most of the stuff that would usually go on a resumé, but also asks for a resumé to be attached. I feel like I'm repeating myself - what should I do? Change the resumé around a bit to highlight different information? Write "see attached resume" in those sections of the form? Not worry about it?
b) I'm in Year 11, and at the moment I have my Year 10 subjects and (fairly good) grades listed on my resumé because I haven't recieved any actual grades in Year 11 yet (we get pass/fail grades mid-semester and A-E grades at the end of each semester). Should I list my Year 11 subjects instead and just put "pass" for everything? (It asks what subjects I'm currently doing on the form, so they do have that information, whether or not I put it on the resumé.)
c) Do I really need the "skills" section on my resumé? It's all vague stuff like "teamwork" and "communication", and there doesn't seem much point...
d) What are good things to put under "strengths/personal achievements"? In general, I mean.
i asked my mom what she wants for mother's day and she told me to keep my money and buy something for my new house (that i'm moving to in less than 2 weeks) should i listen to her or buy her something anyway?

What do you think of when someone tells a white joke...in person..in a movie..whatever...
Like maybe saying white people can't dance...are mocking in a valley girl tone...etc...

Recently, yes. There was a contest over skype not too long ago, in fact
let's say (unless this has already happened to you) you don't want kids. you meet someone who doesn't want kids. you fall in love, get married and are happily enjoying life without kids. but two years later, something changes. he now wants kids. you get into a nasty fight one night after months of him trying to convince you to have kids. you leave after this nasty fight, thinking things are over. you don't talk for days.

do you talk to your pets? (like conversations not just "good dog" or whatever)
A strange thing happened to me today. I was having lunch with a girl I knew only from driving school. In the middle of conversation she suddenly told me that she's a racist (and apparently supports Nazi ideology). I was very bewildered as she stated this in a very casual way, like it was no big of a deal and completely acceptable. I managed to make a noise that sounded probably like "guhhh" and a face that looked something like o___O;. The conversation died pretty quickly after that and I made an excuse to get away as soon as I had drank my juice.
Anyway, my questions:
1. What do you think would have been an ideal response to her?
2. Now what would you have actually said/done in that situation?
Edit:I'm not graduating this year. I was just curious.
2. A 48 year old woman is tired of her career and wants to quit to just become a bartender or server at a restaurant. What do you think? What do you suggest she puts on the application, as her career has nothing to do with customer service and she hasn't had that type of job in 25 years or so?
ok so,... its been a VERY long time since I've done Math, so I cantfigure this out, so maybe you can help
if I am making an alcoholic drink, and I mix
1oz of 40% alcohol
1oz of 28% alcohol
1oz of 18% alcohol
what is my new alcohol % for my drink? and how do you figure it out?
I think its 40+28+18 which is 86 and then I divided it by 300 which gave me something like 28% but I dont know if thats right.
Will you share with us a youtube link of them?
Mine is Bill Hicks (duh, see icon) but looking through clips I am realising...he doesn't really make jokes. No clips I can find do him justice for how funny he is, so I will send you to the Just a Ride bit and tell you to search for other clips if you so wish.
So can you guys think of any way I can transport them all to school without the peace signs getting messed up?!

If you are sexually active, aren't you ever scared that you might get pregnant?
I am a virgin but many of my friends aren't and I just don't know how they can do it and not be scared about becoming pregnant. I've talked to a few friends that have scares but they have had miscarriages or it was a false alarm.
So I'm just curious about whether you get scared about might becoming a mommy.

Last time their bed was thumping against our bedroom wall so loudly (and at 3am), I got annoyed and banged my hand on the wall to signal we could hear them and they were being loud, and they stopped the bed-thumping. I don't like to interrupt their sex, but geez, at that hour, at least quit banging your damn bed into our wall loudly while screaming like a molested poodle.
So my questions:
You have neighbors who like to have loud sex when you're trying to sleep. How do you get them to quiet down?
Or do you try to get them to quiet down, or instead just leave them alone and try to ignore it?
Is it more rude for them to be having loud sex at that late hour, or for someone to try and get them to quiet down?
Would you share what happened?
What did you do differently following the break-in?
Does the thought of someone possibly breaking into your house/etc/etc TERRIFY you?
I have nightmares about someone breaking into my house. Im so scared. Its never happened though. :( I think Im weird and/or neurotic.

Now this guy is PISSED. I had to listen to him yell at me for 20 minutes on the phone ("I didn't think you would be so unprofessional and stupid..."). I ordered replacements for their shoes (as the matches were nowhere to be found). His came in- the wrong style of shoes came in for her. I was misinformed and was told that both were correct, and so I called to inform him that they could come in and pick them up anytime. She came in, I realized the mistake, and apologized profusely. I know they are loyal customers, so I did the only thing I could think of to please her- I offered to buy her shoes out of my own wallet. Now, my store is really expensive... nearly all the shoes are over 120 dollars... Well, she tried on a few pairs of shoes, decided she just wanted a refund, and left slightly annoyed (though she took the correct pair of her husband's shoes).
Her husband called my job a few days ago. He yelled at my manager about how rude I was to his wife. He ranted for like, 20 minutes. I don't understand- I have NEVER been nicer to a customer! I said I was sorry at least 10 times (in the 20 minute period she was there), I complimented her several times, I struck up a friendly conversation... I offered to buy her 200 dollar shoes. What. The. Fuck.
He wants me fired- that much is obvious. He has been calling my store every day. And nobody was working with me that night, so it's my word against his.
Do you think I'm going to be fired for this?
What is WRONG with this man?
Know of any good ones?
I've always loved monsters and other such fictional creatures like zombies, mutants, mummies, and some types of ghosts.. But I don't like werewolves and vampires. I think I grew up with too much internet to really have any respect for them or their followers.

What's on your mind?
I find myself being horribly picky about little things. For example, if I am writing something on a dry erase board and a certain letter doesn't look right and I have to go back and rewrite it... or I'll keep staring at a poster and if the letter spacing is off in one place it will bother me. It extends to regular everyday things too like a crooked green left turn arrow on a traffic signal by work drives me crazy. (And don't get me started on Christmas lights)
I have one friend who is like this also and we joke about it. She is also a graphic designer. Do you think maybe it is a side effect of having to pick apart my work over the years and explain why I put this dot here and that line there... or am I just overly observant?
Now I have a new problem. I asked another guy to prom, and my original date suddenly got jealous and can go.
So, how do I tell one guy that I've got a date already? He was really excited to go with me.
1. Go ahead and cook it and hope it all gets dyed without burning?
2. Do it in the sink since my house has crazy hot hot water and a steel sink that I could add boiling water to?
3. Do it in the washing machine which is a pain in the ass and I really don't want to have to do?
4. Wait 30 min for my friend who has a big pot to get off work?

Best advice you ever got?
1) Do you think Facebook is cliquey?
2) For those who have an account, did you join because of peer pressure?

Does anyone have (or has tried) a foam mattress? I'm changing my bedding and I'm considering buying a foam mattress. I'm not really concerned about firmness (as far as I know, I could sleep equally well on a wooden board or in a super soft bed) but about upkeep. Is it cleaner than a spring mattress (in terms of dust, acarids, etc.)? Most importantly, does it make you sweat? I'm not too bothered about heat, I'm always cold anyway, but it could quickly get gross. Of course, I'll try them in the store, and if I end up purchasing one I'll buy a cotton mattress pad or something, but I just want to hear about real persons' opinions beforehand.
2.) How about murderers (serial killers, mass murderers, etc.)?
3.) How about 'seasoned' gangsters (ones in organized crime, such as mobsters)?

5.) Have you ever been stalked? How did you handle it?
(silly/serious answers. Either works)
Also, how often do these plants need to be watered?
Marigolds, forget me nots, black eyed susans and lavender.
