I have a boy kitty who every night walks around the house making this awful meow. It's loud, long, and at the end of the meow it almost sounds like he's punctuating with a question mark. I dunno if that makes sense, lol. He's a healthy indoor kitty, has been since he was a lil kitten (he's now about 10 or 11 months old, a rescue so I'm not completely sure on the age) Anyway...I wish I could record him doing it so you can see what I mean
Hey everyone, I've got a question that has been plaguing my mind since I've seen it.
Many of the icons you see on LJ have text to them, but some of them have letters that I don't know the acronym for. I know that "omg" stands for "oh my god" and that "wtf" stands for "what the frick" (or any colorful word you like to put in there). But what I can't figure out is "otp" and "pwnd."
I saw a spider today. It was about the size of the nail on your thumb, furry, and had a white dot on the top of its butt. I live in upstate NY, but I've never seen a spider like this one before. Any ideas? Post pics of possible candidates so I can tell.
Which do you prefer and why? What about other "P.C. terms" referring to groups of people? I prefer Native American, because "Indian" refers to someone from India and there's no other term for them. Besides, it would be inane to create a second term for Indians.
Mostly I don't use "P.C." terms unless there's a practical reason or a strong historical prejudice behind it, like above. I do occasionally use ones like "African American" though in contexts where it's semi-required and in contexts where their heritage is of particular issue (e.g. historical analysis, cultural studies, linguistic studies, etc).
I've got something in the back of my throat irritating me. I figured it was a tonsil stone, went and looked in the mirror, irrigated and used a q-tip, I'm convinced there's nothing back there. WTF else could it be? It's way in the back of my mouth, right next to my back tooth, almost under my tongue. It's driving me nuts, it kept me awake for hours last night. :( It just started about two nights ago, too. Out of nowhere. Argh. :(
I have an interview on Monday for a part-time job at Barnes and Noble. I am really excited because this is the perfect job for summer and I've always wanted to work in a bookshop. Do any of you work there and remember how your interview went? Any tips?
I'm watching grounded for life right now and the episode is the one about the father finding out his daughter had lost her virginity and has been having sex. Now the mother has known and is okay with it.
My question to you is would you be the "your not dating til your 18" parent, or the sex talk at age 5 parent? How do you handle the situation? what age do you think would be an appropriate age for your daughter? Are you a male or woman?
1) Is there a way to find someone online if you don't know their last name? I know first name, town he lives in, that he works with computers, and who he's dating.
2) Assuming you could get that information, would you tell the person that the person he is dating is cheating on him with multiple people behind his back? This is a woman I've known for years and, until I discovered how totally nasty she was, considered a friend. I know she's cheated on him at least 10 times with 6 different men. Unfortunately, all I have is his first name, so I can't think of a way to get in touch with him.
in your opinion, could an entree still be called "vegetarian" if it included fish?
if you saw the movie stranger than fiction, what did you think? do you think it's fair to assume harold did other things with his life besides work/eating/sleeping? would you assume his life was pointless before he met anna pascale (the baker) and hearing the narration? (meaning, before the movie starts)?
So my Mom wants to buy something off Ebay, but her credit card expired on Paypal. I'm trying to update it, but each time I try it says "This credit card is already registered in your PayPal account." That's fucking great, but it won't let me use it. Then I tried entering another credit card of hers, and it said the exact same thing.
If I understand this correctly, Paypal has both cards stored, but will not let me use them. Instead, it constantly takes me to a "Add Funding Source" page.
There's a movie I'm thinking of, it's anime, and in the beginning the girl is moving or something like that. Her parents get turned into pigs because they eat so much and she has to work for this lady who has this fat baby and is really big compared to everyone else... It was out a couple of years ago. This big black thing follows her around and it looks like a creepy shadow.
This poor little blue bird keeps incessantly trying to fly through my glass door in the back. I've heard him smacking into it almost every minute since I got home three hours ago. I tried putting up a dark sheet so he would see that there's something there but he kept on.
How do I make him stop? Also Why has he not died yet?
Family reunion tomorrow. Outside. It's going to be hot. About 90F + humidity in direct sunlight for a few hours. I have two possible outfits: Thicker tank top + denim shorts Light tank top + Long but flowy skirt
I have comprehensive exams next week. Six sciences and six arts. I cannot graduate if I don't pass these with at least a 75%, and I STILL know jackshit about the human heart.
I have been flash-carding out the ass, but I could still use some extra help. If you've had to take a lot of science, what sort of mnemonic devices or the like did you use to learn whatever you needed to learn? Things like 'On Old Olympus Towering Tops...' for the cranial nerves and whatnot. My biggest problem is with Anatomy. Anything you can suggest would be a great help. I'll even accept corny jokes about how you'd love to come over and give me 'practical' lessons.
I'm considering going back to school for post secondary. I graduated as a mature student for high school in 2004 (only needed 2 credits, so it wasn't bad bad) and most of my credits are in normal high school many years earlier.
I like a couple subjects in post and not sure what i should take....what do ya guys think sounds more interesting...
Tourism and Travel-Flight Services Option (2yr course at college) and i need no more upgrading, just direct entry. Its around $4-$8k/yr (i THINK!) A collaborative BScN (nursing) at a GREAT university BUT i would need to get some more high school credits in 11 or 12 Math Uni Prep, 12 Biology (which i failed 3 times and one of which i dropped out of), 12 Chemistry, 12 Physics and upgrade on my grade 12 Uni prep english (i have a 65% and i would rather a 75%). Its 4yrs and around $8k/yr.
I am leaning towards the nursing, I dunno though. I also like the Police Foundations course but i have 60% hearing loss in my left ear and i doubt i'd get hired as a cop cause of that....plus i am 100Lbs soaking wet and 5'4" LMAO!!
Money is tight so I can't waste my time or do an Undecided Major, I like adventure and hard work though....
So what would you pick? What sounds more fun....cool...??
i'm visiting my dad this weekend and he's telling my sister and me that if you(a man) meet someone(a woman) at a bar or in the grocery store or something you should never ask the girl for her phone number. he says it's too aggressive. he says if a woman is interested she'll figure it out. i really don't agree with that. how am i supposed to know a guy is interested if he doesn't ask for my phone number or e-mail or even my myspace(though i never want to see someone who asks for my myspace again)? this doesn't make any sense to me.
do you think a man shouldn't ask a woman for her number after they meet?
I've heard of many couples having "lists". That is, a short list (usually 3-5) of people (usually celebrities) who it would be "ok" to cheat on their significant other with. They share the list with their SO, get it "approved" and voila.
GIRL: I'm adding Tom Cruise to my list. BOY: Ok, if you ever meet Tom it will be ok for you to have sex with him. (Something like this, except bigger lists, and the guy obviously has a list too. I think the concept was used on "Friends" once...)
Have you ever had such a list with a significant other? If you were to make such a list right this minute (up to 5 people) who would be on it?
Part 2: I believe (but I could be wrong) most such lists are made fully knowing that you will never ever ever meet these people, and that even if you did, they would never have sex with you anyway. Correct me if I'm wrong.
If you and your SO actually had such lists, and you actually met someone on your list, and they actually wanted to sleep with you... would you do it? If your SO was in a similar situation and actually did it, would you be upset since the list was made "all in fun"?
Last year was a really terrible year for me and I did a wonderful job of not realizing anything that happened up until yesterday and now I can't forget about it - any ideas? How do I forget such incidents?
Ever wanted something other than pizza delivered to your dorm/apartment/house?!
Are you too busy to go to the market?
Well, starting June 1st all your dreams will come true!
Chipotle In N Out Del Taco Taco Bell
McDonalds Subway KFC Quiznos
Starbucks Coffee Bean CVS Longs
Ralphs Bristol Farms Trader Joes Vons
Sounds like a good idea, but then:
$6 per fast food deliveries $10 per market deliveries A $35 for 7 deliveries S $80 for 20 deliveries P $180 for 50 deliveries
So, my question is: Would you use this service, or would the delivery price prevent you from using it?
Personally, I am pretty lazy and would love Starbucks delivered to my doorstep but the thought of paying an extra $6.00 for a $4.00 coffee would almost always defer me from ever using the service.
I understand why they'd need to charge such a high delivery cost, but I don't see how it could ever be worth it unless you were ordering tons and tons of food each time. Not to mention that $6 or $10 is just the delivery cost, and I'm assuming they'd also be expecting tips on top of that.
I do. I like pinks and French manicures. I also like really deep rich colors, when my nails are shorter. Right now they are salmonish with clear sparkles. I do shape mine- they are square tipped right now. It makes removing my contacts terribly difficult.
It hasn't let me update my journal for 2 or 3 days; when I click post an entry it just never loads. Same thing happens if I try to do anything else. I'm not having any other problems with the internet/LJ though. Is there anyway I can fix this TQC?? D:
1. What do you think of Brian Greene? 2. Would you recommend his book, "The Elegant Universe"? 3. Any other books on The String Theory, Quantum Physics, Philosophy, etc that you'd recommend? 4. What are your personal thoughts on The String Theory/The Ultimate Theory?
what's a good first credit card? preferably something easy to get, as i don't have a job right now, i'm just a lowly student, etc.
edit: i have money, and i have an income of sorts. i also plan on getting a job soon, and i will have job-like gigs at school once it starts up again. i need a card to establish credit, not to spend money i don't have.
I visited my grandma this week, and she's got this tree...neither of us knows what it is. She remembered that it's Japanese, and she cuts it back every year, though I pointed out to her that there were shoots growing off of the tall middle branch in the pics below, and also when you break off a "dead" branch, it is completely hollow inside. The leaves are big and similar to elephant's ear. There are green new trunks growing from the bottom of the central brown one; the new ones are green.
Does anyone know...WHAT IS THIS TREE CALLED? I don't even quite know what to Google. ( Collapse )
If any of you know, I'd be pleased to pass the word on to her, because we both want to know!
So, if you hypothetically dripped lots of blue wax on a tan carpet...a really cheap and hard to deal with tan carpet you might imagine...how would you get it up?
I mean, after you do the obvious and pick up as much as you can get up with prying it up with a spoon and knife. Any ideas how a person, who totally didn't do this in a rented apartment themselves, would get this out of the carpet?
(Yeah, okay, fine, it's my fault. I should have had the candle on a platter...but I don't want to lose my security deposit over this stupid puddle of blue on the carpet...but I've gotten everything I can with just picking at it...)
When you were a child, was there ever anything you saw other children do all the time that either made no sense to you or annoyed you? Does it still make no sense/annoy you, or do you know why they did it now?
I was always confused when kids were drawing, that the sky would be a blue stripe at the top of the page, and then empty space between the stripe and the ground. I mean, the sky clearly meets the ground at the horizon! Eventually I learned that other kids didn't think about things like horizons and perspective, so they were thinking "sky above me, ground below me", meanwhile I always knew about horizons and perspective, because my mother is an artist and taught me how to draw.
EDIT: Totally unrelated - have any of you ever travelled significant distances by ship, rather than by plane (such as across oceans)? If you have, please share your experiences.
