Significant other's family?

Q: For those of you with a significant other, do you get along with his/her family?

A: I get along very well with my boyfriend's family, but I have different views on some things than they do. To make a long story short, they see me as kind of a black sheep and this sometimes causes problems between his family and I, and between my boyfriend and I. My boyfriend and I have been together seven years and we've never all been quite able to work through it.

movie, anyone?

I saw this movie in 2000 or 2001, and I'd like to find out the name of it. I don't remember much, except a car chase, and there was an explosive that was some sort of blue gel that I believe they were calling Elvis. That's all I remember, and I know it's vague, but if anyone has a clue what I'm talking about it would be appreciated... it's driving me nuts! I know the night I saw it, it was the first time I saw The Green Mile (which I'm watching now, ha).

Thank you!

Oh, here's a sorta funny one that winter in NY allows me to experience. Ever been listening to music/something with ear-buds and gotten static electricity in your ear? O.o

Looking for a piece of literature....

Alright, I tried whatwasthatbook and no one could help me, so I'm hoping someone here will have a clue. I'm looking for what I think was a short story, but I could be wrong. Here's what I can remember.

I'm pretty sure it was a short story about two people (possibly a couple) who are out driving and they see a tower or an observation platform and the man (I think) wants to go to the top and the woman stays in the car. One of them says something about "___ steps to Heaven, ____ steps to Hell." When the man(?) gets in the tower (all I remember is that it was enclosed) he looks and sees the stairs go up and go down and begins climbing up. He remarks or thinks that it seems like there are a lot more stairs than it looks like from the outside, and she sits in the car waiting for him but he never comes out.

That's what I remember, accurate or not...I hope someone can help me! Thanks in advance, everyone!!!

So, I'm not the girliest of girls, by a long shot. I've only ever worn make up about six times, and all those times someone had to put it on me. Basically, I like how it looks, but I'm too lazy to bother most days.

Still, I figure I may as well learn now. So for all the make up-wearing members, what's your favorite brand of make up?

Do you like one brand totally, or specific things from different ones?

What kind (powder, liquid, etc.) of foundation do you use?

All my friends are crazy about Mac, but they're split down the middle in regards to the foundation. Some say it's brilliant, some say it's too heavy.

Death by Veganism

This post actually relates to a question posted waaay back, but I figured I would bring it back up because of this article:

Who here supports Veganism?

Edit: I'm not asking whether people think the parents were idiots, I'm asking what people think of this article stating that veganism is unhealthy for newborns

Cell Phone Scare

So my cell phone is seriously screwed up. I think it's because it was exposed to water for the 50th time and it's had enough, so it won't fix itself again. What it does is that there's no picture. It "turns on" and off, charges, make a noise when someone texts me, but the screen is perpetually black. It's like some part of it's "brain" doesn't realize it's on when it's on. When anyone tries to call it, it goes directly to voicemail as if it's off, when it's on.

I'm going to take it in to get it checked out but I'm currently really worried about it.... My question is:

Does anyone know if, in the event they can't or won't fix it and decide to give me a new one, if they can somehow retrieve the info in the phone?

95% of the numbers in my phone I don't know by heart, and in some cases, the likelihood of getting them from the people again is really low. I have a bunch of bought ring tones on there too that I really don't want to have to re-buy.

It doesn't seem like it's completely dead because it can still "turn on" but I don't know....

flag identification help

I saw a flag today and I'm having trouble finding what country/whatever else it's from. Google has not helped. I tried here but I didn't see it. It had stripes in this order:

Edit: The stripes were horizontal.

Way back in elementary school, I got to read a bunch of short stories. The title and author of one in particular is eluding me.

In the story, the protagonist discovers a serum that speeds up the rats to which he gives it. He decides to try it on himself, and realizes that after a time, the rats progressively slow down until they seemingly stop moving. The story ends with the man at a typewriter, in the process of typing the word "irony" (his finger is reaching for the "y").

Does anyone here recognize the story (title and/or author)?

1. When someone lends you money - are you paranoid or bothred about it in any way until you pay them back? 

2. What do you do if someone has done something really nice for you and you don't particularly like it?

As most of you know, I'm pregnant. Almost 36 weeks! A lady from work who is a graduated pastry chef made an angel food cake witha home made caramel drizzle that heats up and you pour over it. She made this for my baby shower that I had with friend and family and she also made it for the shower they are throwing me at work today. She said that she made it today so that I could actually taste it today! (I guess she noticed that I did not eat any at the first shower?) Anyways, it sounds delicious doesn't it? 

But thing is, I really do not like caramel and being pregnant, I don't like a lot of foods and my dislikes are noticably more pronounced. I don't want to insult her at all, but part of me wants to be like "Oh, I don't like caramel or angel food cake." I'm not sure why I want to say that - I guess I don't like people forcing me to eat food in any way. But anyways, that where question #2 comes from..

Yes and I also play Gears of War on xbox and xbox live.
Banana nut and I least like the bottom and the most, the inside.
Because fingerprinting SUCKS!!! I hate doing just as much, if not more, then they hate it being done!!

It's a LiveJournal question.... uh oh.

This isn't a technical problem, I'm just not sure where else to go. I've already emailed them about this, but I'm curious to see if it's happened to someone else. I just signed on for 2 months of a paid account (for $5 USD) ... but they just charged my credit card $5 ... THREE TIMES. What's the deal with that? What can even be done about that? Will they just not charge me for the next two billing cycles seeing as how I should be paying $15 for 6 months, not two?

For those of you with cats:

What is the longest amount of time you've left your cat on thier own? 

I have left my cat by herself for 3 days before and she was fine. But I'm going away this weekend and it'll be more like 4 days this time. Would that be okay? I just ask because while she is an adult cat (12 years) I've only actually had a cat for about 3 months now, so I'm still kind of new to taking care of cats.  I could take her with me, but she's much happier in my apartment than where I'm going for the weekend (there's a dog, they don't get along AT ALL).


I just found a complete in the box brand new Half life game for a $1 at the thrift store.

1.It’s a great game and you should install it on your computer RIGHT NOW and play all weekend, ignoring your family in the process and perhaps end up divorced and living in a basement with your only connection to the outside world being the internet.

2.You should give it to your son because he knows how to balance real life with fantasy and you don’t have a basement so he can’t end up living in his parents’ basement. And it sucks anyway.

3.Take it back to the thrift store. There was a reason it was only $1

ETA: I just wanted to know if the game was any good. Thanks anyway. I’ll ask someone at Gamestop.

2)Please tell me one of your vices and one of your virtues?
3)If I walked in the front door of your house/apt/other dwelling, what would be the first thing inside that might catch my attention? If you walked into my apartment your eye would either be caught by the colorful painting of a gas station on the wall or the maniacal oversized bunny/dog barking at you.

Gifts for the Boyfriends Mom

My boyfriend's mother LOVES me to death, and it's her birthday this weekend. She personally called me to go and get drunk and sit on the back patio with her and her friends Saturday night and I'm so excited, but the problem.... what do I buy her? I have the money for a gift, so I don't want to just get a card. I don't know what she reads or likes or anything, except that she is addicted to Young and the Restless.... so... ideas?


Boyfriend and I are in a LDR (just became LD recently). He now lives with his friend in Florida and goes out to clubs pretty much every night.  I, on the other hand, have class every day at 8am so I just sleep a lot and have no social life. However, my friend is having a party on Saturday and he doesn't want me to go.

Difference between him going out every night and me going out once? I'm planning on staying at my friend's (no driving drunk kthx) and he goes home to his own bed every night.  He doesn't like it because he doesn't know who I'm "sleeping with" (myself??)

Have you ever had a pinched nerve in your back? What did it feel like?

I was lifting heavy things (not with my knees. BAD ME) last Wednesday, the 16th, and since then, I've had a sharp pain in my back, and whenever I bend over, or lay a certain way, it feels like a knife twisting in my spine. My sister said it might be a pinched nerve, since all the usual remedies for muscular pain haven't helped. So, instead of running off and getting an MRI or something, I decided to ask the Internet, see if what you felt is what I feel, and maybe then I'll go to the doc.

If I recently decided I only want to date men much older than I am... how would I go about attempting to form these relationships?

What about men who are much younger than I am?

So I made this paiting for the boyfriend. It is acrylics on a vinyl record. I plan on framing it behind glass. Do you think if I hang it in the bathroom that the steam would mess it up?
I hope not.

What was a nice surprise for you today?
Hanging up paintings and realizing I smelled like aforementioned boyfriend from a really good hug. Also, seeing a man who was wearing a rather 80's outfit, twirling a parasol and hoola hooping to his own beat. We honked and waved at him.

What's the most ridiculous song you've heard lately?
Lip Gloss by Lil Mama.

Classic Movies

I'm on a classic movie kick. I watched "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" yesterday, "the Graduate" earlier today and am getting ready to watch "Roman Holiday"


1) What's a really good classic movie to watch (preferably something romantic comedy, but suspense or anything generally awesome will do)
2) Are my fiance and I the only ones who thought the Graduate was a choppy film missing half of the plot points that would have made it make sense?
3) What is your favorite Marylin Monroe movie?
4) What is your favorite classic musical?

  • Current Music
    "Mrs. Robinson" - Simon & Garfunkel

bowling and bumpers

What are your thoughts on adults bowling with bumpers? (the things that prevent you from having gutterballs)

EDIT: Let's assume these are sober adults who aren't bowling for the first time or taking lessons and the bumpers are in because they specificly asked for them.

What was the craziest thing that happened to you at work today?

Mine was 5 guys rushing up behind me and punching me in the kidneys, all while shouting GANK! The second craziest was my 22 year-old superior showing up to a staff meeting wearing a Naruto headband.

1. Do you drink cranberry juice on a regular basis?
- If ya do, please tell me what kind, how often, and how much the brand costs that you use.

2. I've been going to the same pharmacy since I was like, 3. But tomorrow I need to pick up a prescription that wasn't available at my usual. What should I expect, going to a pharmacy for the first time as a new customer? Do they do things like a doctor's office, like make copies of your insurance card & stuff?

3. Do you steal a glance at people in cars next to you at red lights?

It puts the lotion...

1. I recently went out and bought the Jergens Natural Glow daily moisturizer with the tanning cream (fair skin tones, as I am a Casper). Has anyone else used it and does it work?
1b. Can anyone suggest another tanning/moisturizing creme that they have tried?

2. Self-tanners. Again, being a Casper, are there any that won't make me look "ZOMG!ORANGE!" or "ZOMG!FAKE AND BAKE!"?

3. St. Ives Apricot Scrub. Worth it?
3b. Any other really good (facial) scrubs that could be recommended?

Road trips

I recently learned that my two roommates had not been on planes until they were young teenagers. My first flight was when I was 6, from Oakland to San Diego.

I came to realize that many more people than I thought had parents different from mine. ;-) Mine refused to drive any further than Monterey, so we flew whenever we went to Southern California. Until last year when my roommates and I plus another friend went down to LA, I'd never spent more than about 3 and a half hours in a car.

So how about you? How old were you when you first flew anywhere, and how long was the flight? What's the longest amount of time you've spent in a car?

Edit: My longest flight was San Francisco to Auckland, NZ. Yeeeeikes!
