"Tribal" aesthetics suck nuts. Yeah yeah, it's an "acquired taste," which is another way of saying they're ugly.

I need new music, and since my boss has been recommending me music that he loves, and didn't occur in my music circles (Tori Amos, Bob Dyan, Rilo Kiley, to name a few), I want more.
Thrust it upon me, tqc, with vigour.
I ask because I don't wanna show up in nice clothes and be laughed at, but I also don't wanna show up in normal clothes and have the manager get a bad impression or something.
So what would you wear?
(snark is welcome too, of course, since I realise this is a pretty inane question)
I've tried Macy, Sears, Bed Bath and Beyond, JCPenneys.
Do I need to like, get something from the Stop n Shop? And also, will they care how often I get the refills? (Like hell, if I can I'll probably pick up as many as they'll give me, and just stock up.)
Sorry I have no idea how to do anything in life.
PS I know I can just call them probably, it's just 1:40 in the morning and I decided I needed an answer urgently... lol.
do you ever have deja vu?
do you have good intuition? (meaning you can seeing things before they happen, you are thinking the same thing as someone else, etc.)

a. a music/film/book snob who hates everything popular just because it's popular?
b. a media sheep who loves whatever the media tells you to love?
c. sort of a combination of/in between 1 and 2?
2. Do the two extreme groups in #1 annoy you? Does just one of them annoy you?
3. Do you find yourself annoyed when people brag about not being pop culture whores, being "non-mainstream," being "anti-trend," etc?
4. What are some music, movies, etc. that you love that no one expects you to?

2. If so how have they changed your life? (in good or bad ways)
I'm trying to do a voice post & when I call up I'm told to push the pound button. Yeah, I don't know what/where it is. I'm in Australia on an Aussie mobile phone if that matters any.
Feel free to flame & mock me repeatedly if I'm an idiot.
Edit: Thank you all. I didn't realise that the hash key is also called the pound key.
they live in a different state and you wont be able to see them til Christmas at the earliest. However, your parents are going up to see the new baby.
you're also a poor uni student.
also, you dont like your brothers wife
do you buy the a present?
if so, do you give it to your parents to give your brother etc, give him it when you next see him, or mail it up?
would ou give a present for the baby, or the mother, or both?
do you wait til after it's born so that you can find out it's name and sex to buy a present?
what do you give?
how much would you spend?
2) Let's say that you leave your (locked) LJ open by accident and someone reads it. How far back to they have to go for it to cross from morbid curiosity to just plain snooping?
3) Can someone easily identify you from your LJ?
4) If you post locked entries, how do you determine who gets to be on your friends list?
5) Be honest. Are you hurt when someone unfriends you? Does it matter if you know them in real life?
6) Do you filter your entries on a regular basis?

When women sit at a table/park bench and rate guys going past....do you use a 1-10 scale (with 10 being Hot-est) or something else? Something more intrinsic? Something guys can't figure out?
I have an Uncle with a middle name of Eggbert, and I have a cousin called Candida (which is a type of thrush).
Anyway, earlier on today she mentioned that it seems like I don't like her because of the way I talk to her. After what she randomly said the other day, how is she not seeing the connection? People confuse me.
Any friend drama you're going through lately?
I just can't see it happening for everyone. I mean, I would expect the baby to have a connection to you, but you are now dealing with it in a totally different manner. I would think you'd have to build a bond to love it. I wonder if people get upset because they expect to just have all this love instantly, rather than build up the love, and they feel nothing so they think that's wrong.
I had a baguette with brie, camembert, Normandy pate and smoked sausage, and Brioche with rhubarb jam for pudding. The French market rocks.
How long did you date?
Is anyone here from Saskatchewan? (curiosity I've never met anyone on lj but me and friends from Sask.)
I want to switch highscools next year but friends are being of no help, and I can't decide if I should. If I switched that would mean I went to a differnt school every year. Central, Riverview then Vanier. Is that bad? Are colleges going to think I'm "unstable" and not accept me? Should I switch?
P.S. I just got photoshop and I made a animated grafic but lj does not upload PSD files and It's makign me mad because I can't switch it to another file name, I tried. Help?
it's right near my eye. i cant think of anything besides neosporin that would make it better, but maybe someone here has a suggestion. i hope.
ETA: The ceremony's held outside, and so far there's been no word about tickets. I even called up a few friends just now and asked and none of them had heard anything about tickets.

2a. Let's say the relationship ended because they "didn't want to be in a relationship"... does that change your answer at all?
3. What's the most amount you've had to drink in one sitting?
4. What's the best hangover cure?
Age to get married? how long you'd spend together before procreating etc?
I want to move over to Aus to be with my boy. We'd get married when I was 23, he'd be 28.
We'd spend a couple of years together.. travelling, ski seasons etc
I think once we'd settled down somewhere, probably Melbourne.. I'd want to start a family.
When we were 29/35 perhaps?He wants just one baby, he has his heart set on a daughter, Felicity. I don't like the idea of an only child though.. so we'll go for Felicity and Lucas- three years apart.
haha if only life worked out the way you planned for right?
This is so obstacle ridden. :-/
oh well. Wouldn't be so exciting if you knew exacly what was going to happen.
does anyone remember the hamster dance website..well they've definitely redone it...now they have all these odd characters.

3. Do you use anything other than Google to search for things?
4. Are there any festivals that come to your town? If yes, do you go?
5. Have you ever played Ultimate Frisbee?
6. I always feel weird about answering just one question in posts such as this one. Will you answer just one question or do you feel like it's not worth it?
ETA: The way I worded this last one must have confused a few people. I wasnt asking if you would answer one of my questions. Let me reword that: Do you feel okay answering just one question or do you decide it's not worth answering just one and end up not answering any of them?
... I am having a terrible time wording that.
He's had them for about six and a half years. Right now, they're in a box from the funeral home, and the box is holding up a speaker. (His idea, not mine...) I think it's mildly disrespectful, but then (unfortunately) I didn't know his dad like he did.
And my family has a plot in a little town cemetary; I'm sure they wouldn't mind him burying/scattering the ashes out there.

does anyone know who sings that song?
i wanna download it on itunes o.O
So I ask you, wise club members, what is your favorite type of pizza?
odd, normal and self invented yummy comments wanted!
But, here's my problem, and where you come in.
I have a laptop. It's an IBM ThinkPad R52(i dunno if that part is relevant? but ok) and i got it almost 2 years ago. It hasn't ever been reformatted. I am running Windows XP Pro. I cannot find the Windows XP disk...if I ever had one to begin with. I can't remember. :X Either way, I have done a little reading online about reformatting, and I read something about recovery disks. In the package of software that goes to my laptop that I DID find, I have found something called VitalSource Recovery Disk. I don't know what it's for. I don't have any literature on it, either.
Can I use the VitalSource Recovery Disk in place of a Windows XP disk? Will I be able to reformat my computer using that instead?
I'd very much appreciate any input :)
a) Delete my LJ acct.?
b) Keep it in case I want to use it again?
c) Post my password on the web so people can hijack my account and use it to troll innocent bystanders?
d) Something else?
Any suggestions for a flounce post?

How do you define happiness?
What makes you happy?
Right now we have the following for dinner throughout the week.
Hanburgers,7 Layer Salad, hot dogs, pasta roni, rice a roni, fajitas, hamburger helper, stir fry, white rice, sandwiches, spaghetti, ribs, bbq chicken, chicken marsala and stuffed shells.
I know that it seems like a lot, and we don't have all of that every week, but we have it enough to make the meals repetitive. Help please?
Also, who else here finds military uniforms wicked sexy? Like, moreso than most other sexy things in life.
So basically, my question is, how the hell do I prepare for this exam?! I've tried reading it over and over but it ain't working, as I'm reading it and haven't a clue what the text is saying, and have to keep checking my modern translation! And even if I do just keep reading it, and end up understanding the story, it still won't help as I have to be able to quote portions of it which relate to whatever question I'll be asked in the exam! I also found readings of it online, but listening to those don't help much as it's the spelling of the words thats the big problem!
Has anyone ever done well in a closed text exam using this language? Or any other type of difficult language? How'd you manage it?? Any help would be great :)
Personally I just don't think it's as good as it was a few years ago. Plus it just dosen't have as many fans and impact on mainstream culture it had in the 90's. I bet I wouldn't be exagerating if I said they'd have maybe one more season after the movie.
Will you be watching The Simpsons 400th episode tonight?

Also, is anyone here a Barista?
I'm currently in my third to last week of my first year of college, and one of my friends wants me to be his accompanist for a double bass piece he is performing during finals week. Now, these next few weeks are going to be like HELL for me, but he says I'm the only pianist he knows. Now, I don't even know him that well, and when I jokingly asked if he would be paying me, he basically said no. I've never accompanied before, but accompanists usually get paid, right? Should I take this on, even though I'm already really really stressed? Would it mean to tell him no, go find someone else?
Is it strange that I talk to my best friend nearly every single day? We also work together, and very often see each other on weekends, too. It just doesn't feel like a complete day unless I have spoken with/emailed him at least once a day.
It is probably a good thing that we are both single, otherwise the SO would probably get jealous.
How many people do you know who are only children?
If you have a child is it your only child/do you plan on stopping at one?

For those of you not in a long distance relationship currently:
1. Have you ever been in one? Did it end because of distance?
2. If you haven't been in one, would you be able to do it.....
2a. If you met someone on the internet or the likes that lives far away or
2b. If you were in a non-LDR with someone and then the moved far away?
For those of you who are in a LDR:
1. How far apart are you and your SO? How often do you see him or her?
1a. Were you always a LDR or did it become one...mid...relationship?
2. Do you see your long distance ending soon? (like you plan to move in together or relocate closer to them)
3. What's the biggest method you use to keep in touch?
4. What do you do to handle holidays? (whether it be sending gifts, visiting each other etc)
Lately Mika and Muse have been my artists of choice-- Bliss and Any Other World are probably the best songs out there to write papers to, IMO.
A he-she just badly screwed me over and stood me up. While I'm sick. They kept giving updates leading to me running outside a place so they could drive by. I waited over an hour. It's almost an hour later and they still haven't called again. I missed an important casting call because of this.
I want to badly slice their privates with a cheese grater.
What would you do?
Some pictures of me just so you have an idea what my skine tone is, etc. (Note: My hair won't be in these styles at all. I recently shaved my hair, so when I actually have hair period I plan to do it, but remember, my hairstyle won't be like these at all):
Serious answers please guys! Although things like "It Cuts Both Ways" or "Slice" might be good for the lolz, they're aren't really what we're after...
Something like www.pandora.com but for books.

How did you embark on your current job/career?
Did you always know what you wanted to do and if not how did you find out?

but then you wonder "do THEY even exist?""
the guy i just started seeing is having a bbq with a lot of his guy friends and a few of their girlfriends.

(I know, drag me outside and kick me repeatedly whilst yelling "What?! Are you in high school?!")
They have not friended me first, so would it be weird being that my boyfriend and I have only been together 7 months?
If you have friended a significant other's sibling, and then broke up with aforementioned significant other, did you unfriend the sibling?

An elderly couple that have been married 62 years and they shared some interesting stories about life during the war, and the 15 languages that he speaks.

Should I move from Finland to New York to be an au pair for a year? It seems like a great and probably once-in-a-lifetime opportunity but.. I'm not sure wether I want to move in with a family I have never met. I'm just about to move out of home and I'd like to try living on my own first. What should I do? What are the pros and cons? And what kind of place is New York to live anyway?
Edit. By New York I mean New York City.
I just saw it on 60 minutes and I had never heard of it before.
EDIT: Here is a story about it.
How do you feel about widows/widowers getting married again a year or less after their SO's death?
I edited the question. I didn't word it the way I should have. But thank you everyone for your kind words.

And seriously, is knocked up a really good word for getting pregnant?
Last, why would I want to see a fiction like this: hot supermodels never fall for guys who look like they have chia pet hair.
1. Tonight one of my friends calls me and tells me that she's getting married in Kentucky on June 28th and had asked our other friend Emily to stand with her as her witness, but because Emily cannot afford the plane ticket to fly to Kentucky(or a wedding gift for that matter), she cant do it. My friend then proceeds to say to me " Emily said no so I figured I'd call you and ask you to do it." I however will be in New York vacationing with my boyfriend on June 28th. I don't know if I should be pissed off that I got asked as a last resort or be a good friend and just go do it.
... What would you do?
2. Why all the shotgun weddings lately?
Someone told me that perhaps it was power saving option, but I can't find anything mentioning wireless stuff in those menus off the Control Panel.

This morning, I was taking my dogs out, and I heard my next door neighbors having sex (we live in town homes). About an hour later I saw the wife (she's about my age) and I just felt... weird.
If you were accused of murder and were absolutely innocent, what would you do?
a) Plead guilty in order to receive life in prison
b) Maintain your innocence, but face an almost certain death penalty.
Recently mine has been cemetery. I keep wanting to put an "a" in the final "e". Also I always spell definitely wrong. Thank goodness for Firefox and it's automatic spell checker.
Is it sad that I rely on spell check so much?
do you think you could do any part of the competition? i couldn't do any of it.
why do they show the same valtrex commercial on g4 so many times a day? is there a herpes epidemic in the geek community?
how much would you have to be paid to be on a valtrex commercial and say "i have genital herpes"?
do you think they show the same commercial everywhere (who has those cable channels) or do they at least spare the people in those commercials the horror of having that commercial shown where they live? my friend had the idea that maybe they have one commercial with people from the east coast in it and show it on the west coast and vice versa so that actors wouldn't have to deal with being recognized from the commercial and being made fun of/never getting a date again.
When you think of business cards, you don't think of the teaching profession. I'd use them mainly to get my name out there but I also have a resume.
Also, if I do the business card thing, should I update my email address so it's my name? My email address now is meeshodu05 at gmail dot com. Cheesy?
I think that's it. I'm really glad I found a community to ask all my random questions to.
Also, what's wrong with the weather in Ohio? Seriously. STOP BEING COLD!!!!!

When I went to my cousin's house he had this game/toy where it was a plastic beagle with holes all over it and you put plastic fleas on the dog. You would crank its tail and all the fleas would pop off. I loved that toy.
Number 27 was 'If I only had one day to live, what would we do together?:'
I thought well, she's going to die anyway so I said that I would take you down to my secret beach and then at the end of the day and your time was nigh, I would politely ask if I could slowly squeeze the last breath out of you so that I could remember you forever.
She answered by saying that she was so happy that I replied to her meme being as I don't normally and then I further (insanely) clarified that by 'slowly squeezing the last breath out of you' I meant by wrapping my long delicately-boned fingers around your neck and taking your last breath while I stared intently into your eyes. And I told her that I meant this with the utmost respect.
Silence ensued. Crickets chirped. Cats batted things on strings.
So I removed that reply to explain further but then it looked like I was trying to cover a horrible plot to stalk and kill her and now I feel bad about myself. She hasn't removed me from her f/list yet. Should I -
1. just find her and get it over with so that I won't feel bad about myself anymore
B. keep pleading my innocence until the cops show up.
I should add that she is a well-known person in her city and will probably be missed.
Specially by me.

2.) Does/Did your college have this grading scale? If not, what was the grading scale like?
3.) What college did you go to/are you going to? (You don't have to answer this one if you don't want to.)
Videos, music, sound on youtube, I get nothing. How did this happen? And what in the world can I do to fix it?
What is the weirdest fortune you've ever gotten from a cookie?
My answer: A twist (chocolate and vanilla) soft-serve ice-cream cone. I even remember my very first one, which was at the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo. It seemed bigger than my head. And once a week my aunt or my uncle would take me to Shoaff Park or Franke Park and get me one of those cones along the way.
I can only think of one Darren Hayes song (Love and Attraction - but he's out now, so the new album may be different), and some Magnetic Fields' tracks (like, "When my boy walks down the street.)
I think some Bowie songs that used male pronouns, but I don't remember which. Anyone recall?
2. When did you last get a haircut?
3. I'm in Britain - is the etiquette to tip hairdressers, or not to tip?
4. If you get a cut that you don't like, do you say anything, or pretend it is okay?
(whether that be with distant old family members who still think of you as a child, or if you're on a date, etc?)
Mine: College. Especially with people who are friends of my parents, or family members who still think I'm 6 years old. The next person who asks me "How's school?" I'm just going to tell them how it is: I go to class, I do things that I really don't want you knowing about, I go to the gym, I study, I live off of Ramen, I fuck around with friends, I sit on my ass. Srsly.
