Do you think it is deserved?

Do you think it is deserved?
"you never get over your first love."
also, what is the most effective way, in your opinion, to get over someone?
I am currently eating Spaghetti-os that had the date stamped on the top as expiring in 2003. Will eating these things kill me?
I bought my laptop in January of this year, so it's pretty new. I don't download music on it, or do anything else to compromise it, as I've learned my lesson from my virus-ridden desktop computer.
All of the sudden, for no reason that I can pinpoint, when I type in www.youtube.com my laptop brings me to a weird search result page. Even when I go to Google first, search for "YouTube" and click on the results, it does the same thing. The URL is: http://www.miaminews365.net/look.php?aff=8131&subaff=1312&qq=games.
It only does this with YouTube. I can go to any other website on my Favourites list without a problem. Does anyone have any idea what could cause this?
I searched my computer for the word "miami" since that's in the URL to see if I could find out where the heck it's coming from, but nothing showed up (except "Miami" by Will Smith :P)
I'm running Norton AntiVirus as we speak (or as I type, anyways) but nothing's shown up as of yet.
Does anyone have any other ideas? Is there anything else I can do?
- - If so, how would you describe the taste?
- - If not, would you be willing to try them if given the opportunity?
Do you even know what they are?
Do you like it? Does it work well with MP3s you've downloaded yourself? I know you can't use it with songs downloaded off of iTunes, but what about songs you rip from CDs or download from Limewire?
And what about the Zune to Zune music sharing thing? Does it work? What about downloading sample tracks? What's that all about?
Do you think you could ever get someone on your side by insulting them?
Also, my friend wants me to ask, what is the difference between a threaded nail and a screw? He works in a hardware store, and said they were two separate products, and was curious because they seem like they're the same thing.
My stepdad moved in with us when I was 13/14, and he and my mom married a year or so later. We've hugged three times (once because Mom kind of made me, once because we'd just had a huge fight, and today because I bought him Dave Matthews Band tickets). We've said "I love you" once (after the aforementioned fight). I've never called him "Dad".
2. Have you slept with Keith Olbermann?
No. Would I? ...possibly.
3. Do you think Dramatic Chipmunk is funny?
I think it's hilarious.
Why care so much about what other people call themselves? It doesn't hurt anyone.
I just don't get why people flip out over perfectly harmless things that don't even affect them.
How'd that go for ya?
If you have--did you wear sunblock or moisturizer with it? When did you put it on--before the sulfacet, or after? The doctor told me to use it twice a day, but I'd like to still wear sunblock, but I just can't figure out when to put it on.
1. Since zombies transmit the virus/whatever when they bite you, would burning them and breathing in the infected particles infect you and eventually turn you into a zombie?
2. Which do you think would be worse for a hooker? Having sex with random men, or giving BJ's to random men? Which would be worse for you?
Do you like "bad boys" or good boys?
Why do you think girls often choose bad boys?
Alternately, where would be a better place to ask this?
My question is, does anyone care about Paris Hilton and her current situation? I mean really, besides her family?
How about Lindsay Lohan? Anyone care about her? Personally I'm sick to death of being pelted with them every time I turn around... and am glad that they've giving Britney (sp?) Spears a break.
With the study dealing with "are first born children smarter" is that only in the case of families where they all come from the same parents? What about when a step father or mother come in and bring their own child into the equation. Then who would be considered the first born? The oldest from one of the parent's first relationships, or the first child to come out of the newly married couple?
I had to stop.. I was making things waaaaaaaaaaay to complicated for myself.
How many times a day do you take a shit?
I felt like ranting, and hearing other people do so.
Did it make your libido explode through the roof?
I'm cutting back on some I've been on for a few years now and I'm like humping everything that moves. It's almost painful how high-strung my vagina is right now. No joke :(
2) What's the last thing you ordered or watched on PPV?
EDIT: I didn't know this many people actually enjoyed going out to the movies. I guess a lot has changed in a month. $50 does seem pretty steep though, IMO.
(BYOB is bring your own bottle/booze in this case. In case you thought it was some other funkiness)
edit:// I'm bringing Jack Daniel's country cocktails how many do you think I should bring for a party of 10?
Would you be disappointed or excited by there being a beer bong at a party you attended?
Do you play any drinking games?
2. What was the last controversial thing you debated/argued about with someone? (For example; abortion).
3. What was the last thing you were dreading, but then ended up enjoying?
4. I'm hungry and haven't eaten today. Should I eat now, or wait for three or so hours for the BBQ I'm attending?
5. I ordered my SO a shirt online that has text on it that is applicable to him, but not to me (something about having a penis and a shitty car). Should I just give him the shirt, or should I wear it and wait til he figures out that there is no way the shirt could be for me (he knows I bought him a shirt, he just doesn't know what it is). Or should I find some other, more creative way to deliver it to him?
• A fun comedy, one that will make me laugh out loud.
• If it can make me cry, as WELL as laughing, lots of bonus points.
• It can be new or old, as long as I can find it at Hollywood Video.
To explain I'm a member of a couple dating websites on the net, hey all the losers can't be on just one and I need to expand myself in order to meet them all lol, and I just recieved a message on one of the sites about one member adding me to their saved list. While reading their profile they did seem close to me but then I got to the part about them being married and in a polyamorus relationship. What are your first thoughts on that and what would your first thoughts be if the situation happened to you? I will point out that they checked all the boxes for why their at the site...short term dating, long term dating, pen fals, new friends, etc... so they could just want someone to talk to, but I'm just curious about other's thoughts.
what are the new precautions?
am i correct in thinking that only hand luggage with liquids in them have to be declared?
do i have to measure out liquids that im going to store in my suitcases?
are you going on holiday this year, if so, where?
2. Do you think feeling jealousy means love, or with love comes jealousy?
3. Can you solve a Rubik's cube?
4. What are your plans for today?
5. What are a few things that seem/are trivial that really bother you?
6. Apparently Sasha Baron Cohen is going to play Freddie Mercury in a biopic... What do you think?
7. What are you doing this summer?
8. How are you?
1. I like someone who is completely confusing and can't make up his mind, but I can't complain.
2. I don't think you have to be jealous to be in love, but certainly not indifference.
3. I'm on the last layer and having trouble. :(
4. Later tonight I'm seeing Fall Out Boy, I don't even like Fall Out Boy.
5. It bothers me when people believe Tim Burton directed The Nightmare Before Christmas. I can't stand Halle Berry, specifically because of Catwoman. Also, I can't understand why people constantly compare Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride.
6. Well, I can't see Johnny Depp doing it, Cohen looks more like Freddie... it will be interesting?
7. I want to become fluent in Spanish, and finally learn to solve a rubik's cube.
*edit* The show is on Sunday, not Saturday.
Also, why is TLC so obsessed with the morbidly obese?
On a similar note, who else is still clinging preciously to their lifetime's compilation of CDs and not giving in to the sick, sad world of mp3s? I'm not ready to admit defeat yet.
When will guys learn that "but you look exactly the same with and without makeup" isn't a complement? >:O
My dad just left for Vegas. He plans on carrying his fanny pack around the strip with him. Will he be mauled?
What should I do for dinner? It will be with my boyfriend and his vegetarian, 9yo nephew.
I need a new job. I have a Bachelor's degree in English and have worked in publishing/media for about 3 years. Right now I edit and review copyedited textbooks, mostly medical. Any ideas? I also love animals and am a damn good cook.
(AN ARMCHAIR!... actually two armchairs, stacked on one another... huh.)
Also, when you were a kid, what did you think was under your bed (or closet or laundry basket or whatever) at night?
(Dude, that b-movie "Critters"? That's what I thought was under my bed. Those things scared the shit out of me.)
I posted this in my personal journal, but no one replied, so I'll ask a bunch of people who don't really know me to help.
What would you suggest I do?
I have a BA in Linguistics, speak English, French and German, I taught English as a second language for 8 years professionally, owned my own company for 4 years...now I work as an administrative assistant part time.
I've published a couple of books, had tons of strange jobs and volunteer experiences in my life.
I like organizing and planning, so maybe a travel agent, but I don't really want to go back to school for that.
I like mechanics and driving.
I think I'd like to drive a truck, but don't know if I want to be a truck driver.
I dislike authority usually, but can get along with people.
I dislike routine - I need a challenge or I get bored.
I don't want to be on my feet for long periods.
I don't want to work full time hours if I can help it.
Don't particularly care for working weekends, but it's not a deal breaker.
Won't leave my current job for less pay.
Would be nice if I can get to work using public transit, failing that, parking should be provided and/or free.
I won't do customer service or retail...I just don't have enough patience to deal with annoying people.
EDIT: I won't do sex work, but would be open to the idea of making some sort of website, providing I found the right niche, since the market is already saturated.
I don't want to teach English anymore.
I would like to start another business, but I don't know what.
What was the best piece of gossip you heard today?
Have you ever ordered anything off of an infomercial? Were you pleased with it or was it absolute crap?
Does anyone have any experience scaring off Herons from their ponds? Do you have any suggestions for ways to keep the Heron away, besides running outside and chasing the damn bird every time he appears?
( Collapse )

I need to choose one for my summer assignment.
(For purposes of this question, please exclude
So your Magic Death Wand needs to be exercised so it doesn’t wither and crumble away from disuse – what famous person/celebrity do you use it on, and care to share why?
Contrast this with pointing it at another celebrity and proclaiming, “Banish yourself to Never-Work-or-Be-Seen-in-Public-Again Island, or face the Wand!” Who would you do this to, and again, why?
All I can come up with is "Summer Biter" for the meaning. Can you think of something else that makes a bit more sense?
[edited for clarity]
The thing is, I know a lot more mentally ill people on the internet that I know offline. This is probably true for lots of other people too.
Are there more mentally ill people on the internet because it's easier to open up and to find people who understand you?
Is it because being on the internet a lot actually has a hand in making some of these disorders worse? Or in a worst case scenario, actually making someone mentally ill when they had no problems before? These two have no basis in any fact, by the way. Just pure speculation on my part.
Or is it a mixture of both?
Are you allergic to any food dyes (or do you know anyone who is?) Which dyes? Can you tell me anything about your symptoms, reactions, how you found out, etc?
EDIT: Thank you all for your concern, but YES I KNOW that sugary cereals aren't good for kids. She typically has plain old Cheerios. However, I was not the one picking the cereal this morning. This was the first time she's had the sugary cereals, hence the allergic reaction being a surprise. Obviously, it won't be happening again.
My recent battle wound was acquired through learning to ride a motorcycle, it suddenly started to sprinkle light rain and boom my bike slipped from underneath me and I landed in the middle of the street screaming in agony. I have a really bright pretty bloody knee to show for it (camera is dead, will edit with picture later) and fucked my bike up in the process...its still ridable but has some scratches. No more riding in the rain for me :(
Some other ones: scar on lower right arm from cutting it on a sharp cut zip tie at a retail store while trying to enter their bathroom (key was attached via zip tie to bathroom door).
Scar on my OTHER knee from falling off my OTHER bike (banana bike, when I was 5). They're nice and even now.
Huge scar on my belly button from a belly button piercing gone wrong.
So, lets hear your stories!
What is the process for mole removal like these days? Moles as in skin moles, not little animals. My mom used to have them removed pretty often, but that was 10-15 years ago and I suspect its probably changed a bit.
I think I need to have one removed and I'd just like a little heads up on what to expect.
Are Hot Cheetos and Hot Cheetos with Limon only sold regionally?
We talk daily on account of the fact that we live together (duh). I don't mind this at all.
What I mind is that she talks to me ad nauseum about the daily minutia of my brother's life.
Ex 1: My brother's friends are over and they're in the garage, playing music. They come in to eat and raid the place.
She would not only like to comment on how hungry they are, but have a 15-30 minute chat about how endearingly boyish all of them are. Every. Single. Time. Mind you, my brother is in high school. High school students have a lot of free time, so this happens quite a bit.
Ex 2: My dad temporarily (and unfairly) barred my brother from drumming lessons because he wanted my brother to run track or no deal. The entire family came down on him pretty hard and he backed off. My brother is now getting drum lessons. All is well.
Or is it? Because if it was, I wouldn't have to fend off overtures to in-depth conversations with my mom about what a bad-guy my dad is and how my brother deserves drum lessons.
Ex 3, etc: She will, at least once daily, try to engage me in conversations about his schoolwork, his friends, his new haircut (sure to be a topic of conversation for about 1 more week), his clothing, the way he acts, his "attitude," how smart he is, and blah-f*cking-blah.
I asked my brother if she talks about me to him and his reply was, "no, not at all."
It's very one-sided most of the time. I've recently taken to completely facing away from her when she starts talking about my brother or abruptly changing the subject, yet I am still engaged daily in these chats about my brother.
I simply could care less about her take on his behavior or life. He and I are great friends and I know enough about him already. Do any of you guys have advice on how to stop these chats?
2. I am a superfatty. I went for an 8 mile bike ride today, for no reason other than exercise and enjoyment of the day. On the way home, I stopped and got a small, single scoop of ice cream. Did I just completely undo the benefits of the bike ride Y/N? Should I be proud of myself for showing restraint and not getting a triple scoop like normal?
What was the biggest thing you broke to your knowledge, with a sibling or not? A vase, a door, a car ..
Do you regret how you treated your siblings when you were younger?
Do you wish you had a younger sister instead of an older brother, etc.? Do you wish you were an only child?
If you do or would do this, would you do the same thing for a rented movie (return it asking for a refund after watching it and deciding you didn't like it)?
Idk personally that's always irritated me when people do it. Pet peeve. I don't see why the theatre should lose money because the movie you chose to go see wasn't to your tastes.
*"Okay" simply meaning something you would do without feeling bad about it. Not "is this socially acceptable or will you be shot in the face for it". For all the literal assholes :)
2. how do i become ~*popular*~?
I have an aircast and am on crutches for the forseeable future. I'm finding it tiring and find that the undersides of my arms are getting really sore.
Any tips? Am I doing something wrong?
( Collapse )
2. Does anyone else have a problem finding cute dresses? They're either too short, look like their made for preggo people, or are ugly patterns/colors.
3. Is it lame I enjoy playing Dance Dance Revolution?
4. What's something about you (maybe something you've done, or a large phase in your life) that most people don't know about, simply because it's never brought up, not because you try to hide it?
5. When was the last time you played with a puppy/multiple puppies?
2)What's the last fantastic meal you made for yourself?
3)What is your favorite Blondie song?
2. What are the chances this will actually break glass? If you have this or a similar item, have you ever had to use it?
3. Have you purchased anything from Sarah Jessica Parker's Bitten line?
I can call my mom, my grandparents, my boyfriend, and one good friend- but it sometimes just hurts to call to order pizza, to talk to school people, to get info about store hours, etc.
Does this have a name, other than me calling it a phone phobia? It's rather stressful for me sometimes. :(
If you opted to not get a diamond on an engagement ring, what stone did you choose? Any special reason behind the stone choice? Did people think you were weird for not getting a diamond?
I'm torn about the whole thing--I'll openly admit society has successfully brainwashed me into wanting a shiny diamond, and the clear stone does go with everything! I love tanzanite, but it's blue/purple color isn't universal and the stone is really too soft for everyday use. Sigh.

My youngest brother (16) failed American History and his FCAT in reading this year. He barely passed most of his other classes. My parents are divorced (my dad left mom) and Mom has full custody of the brother. Dad has visitation 1 night/week and alternating weekends. Brother is aware of mom's hate for dad, and as a consequence, dislikes him too.
Younger brother HATES HATES reading, and HATES all attempts by anyone to make him read. Dad and I, and to lesser extent, Mom, remind him that it wasn't *us* who failed the reading FCAT or American History, but that a dutiful parent would make him read to catch up over the summer.
Dad tries to keep on Brother about his homework, and this weekend, having visitation, planned to have little brother read his American History textbook from summer school, and then teach him about the era via a war game on the Civil War.
This morning, after Dad announced the plans for the day, Brother left while dad wasn't looking, walked to a gas station, and called another family member to pick him up and take him to Mom's, essentially "running away."
Note: Dad has not hit, yelled, or thrown anything at brother. The *only* reason he left was because *he was going to have to read on a Saturday in the summer OMG.
If you were Mom, what would you do?
If you were Dad, what would you do?
2. a) Anyone else have trouble swallowing pills?
b) For those who can swallow most pills with ease, what type of pills do you find the easiest to swallow?
3. a) Is there a different spelling version of your first name that you don't like?
Karry or Carey. I mean no disrespect to anyone whose name is Karry or Carey.
b)Do people often misspell your name?
Yes. My name is spelled Carrie but people sometimes spell it Karrie or Carie. Someone wrote me an e-mail once spelling my name Carry.
c) Does it bother you when people misspell your name?
Yes, it does.
