2. Do you have any stains on your walls/ceiling from squishing bugs?
3. Do you prefer to use tissues with lotion, or tissues without lotion?
4. Do you like water chestnuts?
When I was four, I very clearly remembered thinking the only difference between being a child an adult was being big enough to drive a car, and getting to set your own bed time.
2. are you tired?
3. do you stay up for no good reason even though you are way tired?
4. is it hot or cold where you are?
Am I likely to get CTS from a transcription job?
If so, is there anything I can do (besides quit, I'll get around to that when I find a job I actually want :P) to keep my hands healthy and lower the risk for the time being?
how big is "too big" for stretched piercings in a professional setting, iyo?
what about in a non-professional setting?
do you think negatively of people who have visible tattoos in a professional setting?
how many tattoos = too many?
Don't you hate that?
Also, I have received so many cards especially from my coworkers. I’m going to be overwhelmed if I send everyone who sent me a card a thank you note. For my coworkers who sent cards, do you think it is inappropriate to send an individual email to each of them thanking them for the card?
What if there was some neutral news in there as well?
How do you feel about turning this particular violation of human rights into an icon of humor? Does it make you laugh hysterically in spite of yourself? Does it disturb you deeply and make you yearn for an end to mankind? Does it make you feel things you'd rather not discuss here? Does it make you feel some combination of these? Or does it make you feel something completely alien to anything we could possibly imagine?
Inquiring minds want to know.
If your 2 year old was sodomized by a dog, would you tell them once they got older?
If you were sodomized by a dog @ 2 years old.... would you even want to know?
(assuming in both cases the child had no memory of the event)
(sparked from CNN news story about California wanting to pass such legislation.)
Do you think animals are property, or should they be regulated under health and welfare in states?
Does either orientation have a distinct meaning compared to the other?
Which do you prefer and why?
Unfortunately, I've been unable (so far) to find the pennants and am going to have to make the checkered flags because I couldn't find those, either. If those turn out weird and unusable, I don't know what I'm going to do.
If you were to decorate a building according to the theme of The Tortoise and the Hare, how would you do it?
Are they comfortable? (My feet are kinda wide.)
Do you wear them without socks? Do they get nasty?
1. Does anyone here go to University of Michigan, specifically the Residential College? Is it possible for a student from another college to be a visiting student at the RC?
2. Would you be upset if your mother or father didn't tell you that you had a twin that died at birth until you were 20 years old?
I'm going to make meerasedai Chocolate Chip pancakes
Did your gas jump yesterday to today? ours went from $3.09 to $3.39 in Madison, Wi
I uninstalled my Itunes, and then downloaded the latest version to my external harddrive. I then transfered all my music files to the external hard drive.
When I tried to upload my songs onto the ITunes, it said that I didn't have enough room on my C:\ drive. It seems to be that my music files are copying themselves BACK onto the C drive.
So my questions are:
Is it even possible to run ITunes off an external harddrive?
And if so, can someone explain to me how to make this work?
*Genitalia and sex related junk e-mails don't count.
Mine is "Be sure you know that no one is looking over your shoulder"
i'm wearing a blue shirt and the color of my car is blue, what color top are you wearing and what color is your car?
if your parents are still married, do they both wear their weddings bands? (i noticed my boss sometimes doesn't, and i've seen his wife go days without hers.. so i was just curious)
What toppings do you prefer on your burgers/veggie burgers?
Magic Kingdom or Epcot?
(re: recent drama) Can't we all just get along?
Do you consider your family to be big or small? How many people are in your family?
I'm talking about immediate family but if you have very close extended family you can count them, too.
Sprint vs Verizon vs AT&T/Cingular and why???
I always wished I was one of those really small girls- kinda skinny, but with long arms and legs, just that lean, slender look. Instead of my big bone structure & stocky build, even when I'm thin I'm kinda muscular...I look like an old farming girl.
What's the highest level you've gotten to in Tetris?
I live in Iowa, and no. Though I often see cars that wouldn't pass inspection in Missouri (or so my BF says) and wonder if we shouldn't have a similar law.
2. When's the last time you bought milk? What kind?
Just a bit ago, whole.
3. Do you care about this Harry Potter hoopla?
I couldn't give two shits about it.
Mine is set on 76 right now to see if it is working. (It's not). It is now 80 degrees in the house, and climbing. Depending on how hot it gets outside (usually 110-118) it will climb to about 85-90 inside.
So TQC what do you set your a/c to, and am I being too demanding wanting the a/c to be cooler than 80 degrees in my house?
1. Don't date anyone at work (This one is as unbreakable as it gets for me)
2. Don't hint on someone while they are working, especially a bartender
However, there is a lady I find very attractive that works at a local coffee shop and unless I become a stalker (which is in fact illegal in California) I don't know where I would see her except while she is working.
Can anyone offer any suggestions as to how one might express interest without being just another asshole customer?
My best friend and I saw that video on V-Cast back in October of 05, and loved it (we're Katrina victims, that should explains why we liked it so much) and I'd love to find a copy online to email to her, and to have for myself. I've searched on YouTube and Google and I can't find it anywhere. :(
Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
If you do, do you know where I can find a copy of that clip?
2. Are you a food snob about anything in particular?
1. I think they taste like dust and have a nasty texture.
2. I have to cook with fresh mozzarella and I won't eat the above-mentioned mashed potatoes. I'm also a vegetarian but that's not out of snobbiness.
What flavor are you going to get?
I like the classic coke or cherry/coke mix.
2) What is your favorite game for the DS? What about for other consoles?
3) Any cool accessories?
I just bought a DS lite, obv. I'm kind of obsessed lately. If you have one, tell me about it.
Edit*: Oh & my favorite game is Mario Kart DS...I've also been playing a lot of Zelda for GBA - The Minish Cap & Link to the Past. Love both. I'm obsessed with Zelda lately, it's been my favorite videogame since I started as a kid.
I have a set of shelves I bought to help me get organized. They're plain wood, so I plan on painting them, but can't decide on a color. My walls are painted with a color called Brilliant Sea (second column, second from bottom), and I want a color to go with that, but I don't want to paint the shelves the same color as my walls. Any suggestions?
2: What is the meanest thing someone has said to you?
3: Do you believe is the supernatural(angels,demons,vampires,fair
4: Do you believe in an after-life?
5: Do you prayer?
Who is the funniest comedian out there right now?
you get your bike today and realise the back tire is dragging a little thus making it harder more strenuous to ride and it feels heavier. my friend says it's a symptom of a low pressure tire and goes away on its own. but i was riding on a flat surface so i don't think that's it. and my tire isn't flat either cos the air isn't coming out. any ideas as to the problem? i'm going to try filling my tire up and hope it really isn't flat. any other ideas who know what they're talking about let me know.
4. All posts concerning free iPods should NOT be posted here. </a></b></a>free_ipods_help was shut down for a reason and I will not allow this community to be suspended. This also includes the plethora of 'free' offers advertised on the internet that require the participant to complete specific offers in order to obtain the product.
What is she talking about, for what reason would that community have been shut down? Was this a scandal or something?
What region/state/province do you live in? Do you like it?
I would absolutely loathe living in the US midlands or south(not including the southwest). The miles of nothing, the backwoods hicks, the republicans. (I realize that not everyone in these regions is like this. However, there ARE quite a few to make it horribly unpleasant for me. No offense meant to anyone. ).
I live in the US northeast- Massachusetts. I LOVE it here.

What's your favorite kind of sandwich?
What has your favorite been out of the movies?
I actually really liked it...despite the giant leap from the book (I look at them as two seperate things really, its no use trying to compare, them, I think). It was entertaining and fast paced annnnd Alan Rickman is so flubbing sexy, and Gary Oldman. Mmm mm! xD
This is definitely my favorite thus far, well, right under the third (that Gary Oldman love again).
Anyone with me on this one?
(Sorry about the previous post....I must have missed it!)
EDIT: Yay yourexsilly! Thanks for pointing me to The Things I Want
A "professional counselor" or a psychiatrist? Or Psychologist?
Feel like sharing why?
How long have you gone/did you go?
If you aren't going anymore, why did you stop? How did you tell the person you were done? Did they tell you that you were done?
(I ask because I'm in counseling right now, and I don't think it's helping enough to be worth the money I'm sinking into it. And financially, we really need that money. But I'm not sure how to tell her that I think it's not really going to solve the problem, since I think the problem is some other kind of medical, not mental. I originally went because I have problems with fatigue, which my doctor blames on depresion. But my counselor says I'm not depressed...)
when's the last time you went to the ATM?
do you remember how much $/£ you took out?
1. Are you comfortable with/willing to get naked in front of your doctor?
2. If no, could you imagine a doctor you would be comfortable with, or would it always be horrible?
3. If yes, do you worry that this could be injurious to your health one day?
Under the cut you will find a handy map to reference during my explanation:

The orangy striped area is construction, they are replacing the bridge that flows over the creek, as indicated in red.
My lease for the current apartment ends July 31st. As far as my new landlord said, he thought that the tenants that are currently in my new apartment wouldn't be out a few days early as previously thought, but he wasn't sure.
The question is...should I rent a regular pickup truck or a U-Haul to move? Part of me thinks if I just loaded it up, kit and caboodle, and then stayed at my boyfriend's or something that night, I'd be okay.
I'm also going to be down one helper as my mom's having cataract surgery (the other eye) on that Monday, the 30th, and I'm not gonna have her do anything, except maybe supervise.
What's made you smile today?
What's made you frown?
But she and my daughter are napping on the couch right now and they look SO cute.
It's already a quarter to 3:00.
Should I wake them to go out? Or let them finish their nap and then it'll probably feel too late to go anywhere?
Should I take a picture.....even though she'll probably be mortified to see a sleeping picture of herself?
2. If you notice a married person with their wedding ring on the wrong hand, does it make you wonder why? What do you assume is the reason?
3. Don't you hate it when you put something on the top shelf of the fridge and it freezes?
Beef tips, stir fried with some frozen veggies and mixed in cream of mushroom soup (all done in a nonstick skillet).
Leave out the cream of mushroom?
It's a little experiment of mine, but it may be a common dish. I have no idea.
And if so, do you remember a spread run (probably around 2-3 weeks ago) around a certain fashion designer? There were pictures of several dresses, captioned with different styles and art movements that they had been inspired by. I can't for the life of me remember the date or the designer.
Can anyone help?
What newspaper do you read? What do you think of it?
I'm pretty broke so I bought a $30 cheapie from Target, but after having it two months, it kinda hurts my butt. I tried sitting on a pillow, but the pillow went flat.
I can find my way out of just about anywhere, my fiance absolutely sucks at any sort of navigation- I spent 15 minutes on the phone with him trying to get him somewhere and he STILL can't find it. x_x
And now for something completely different;

How long did it last?
Are you annoyed by any of your own mannerisms?
Do you like buffet style restaurants? What's your favorite one?
What would it take for you to sell your soul to the devil? Can you play the fiddle?
What is running through that crazy head of yours?!
2. When you stay up all night do you feel the need to eat a lot?
3. Did you watch the All-Star game last night? Is so, wasn't A-Rod missing the easiest catch ever and Jose Reyes laughing his ass off at him the best moment ever? :)
4. Isn't "Zebulon" the coolest name ever?
what are plants that either do well being in direct sunlight all day and not a lot of watering, or that don't need much sun at all? i am not a big fan of cactus, but if there are other succulents that are prettier, let me know.
If so, did you celebrate it?
If not, will you?
(EDIT: And by 'celebrate it', I mean doing something more for it than you would do for any other birthday ;))
Have you ever overheard a conversation that sounded like it could be fake? What was it?
Does that slapping sound that flip-flops make drive you crazy?
I'm not really into a lot of mainstream music :)
My doctor's appointment isn't for two more weeks. What can I do in the meantime to keep myself from having to pull over in these idiotic situations?
Also, I sometimes hear a tone in my ear, like those tests of the emergency system or when someone flatlines on a hospital show. What's up with that?
1) That being said, when do you think the US will fall?
2) How will it fall?
3) Will English die like Latin did after the fall of Rome?
4) What do you think the next human empire will be after the fall of the US? What will the world's next "Language of trade" be?
What brand and scent of deodorant do you use?
I'm around a 7 in size, most of the time. I just got home from the thrift store, 2 wonderful skirts in tow. Sizes: 9 and 4. They both fit me perfectly. How insane is this, on a scale of 1 to 10?
The English have many interesting potato chip flavors. Which would you like to try most? Least?
I am moving to California from Massachusetts in August for school, and I am bringing my car with me. My car's inspection expires in January. Registration doesn't expire until 2009, and my license expires in May 2008. Should I just get my car inspected in August before I move, or should I re-register my car and license in California and get it inspected out there?
I'm sorry if this is confusing, but I really don't know how to put into words what I am thinking at the moment.
I may have a steady job out in California, and I will probably be taking summer classes at my college. Does that mean that I should just move there permanently and establish residency?
If your milk isn't cold enough for you, do you just not drink it or put ice in it?
And what can you do when the things that made you happy now only make you blue?
My relatives are very religious and about once every family reunion they try to tell me that Jesus is love, I'll go to hell if I don't believe in Jesus, etc etc. My favorite retort is "That's your belief, not mine. Please respect that." Then I go strike up a conversation with someone else.
What is the most money you've ever been manipulated out of by a solicitor?
Do all the hippies seem to get the jump on you?
2. Does it work well?
I don't have spamguard on any of my e-mails and whenever I get junk I just highlight it and click "Spam". Not sure if that works or not.
2a) A friend told me they had put up a profile on there. Shortly thereafter, I had nothing better to do one night, so I signed up for a free account and created a profile. Now today I get a notice that someone on the site has messaged me. Of course, to access the message, I have to fork over money. Should I?
2b) If yes, should I do 1 month ($35), 3 months ($60 total, $20/month), or 6 months ($102 total, $17/month, their "if you dont find someone in 6 months we'll give you 6 months free" gurantee)?
FWIW, I've never paid for a personals site before. I still worry I'm wasting my time just by signing up in the first place...
I fail at teh kitchen.
It looks like she is having sex with her laptop!!!!1
Should I buy that Nikon d40? I have the money, even though I was saving it for college in oh.. two months. But I really want it!
But it seems too good to be true.. have you ever tried it?
Is their food any good at all?
Should I just go to steak n shake or one of the many well-loved chains within blocks of my hotel?
I feel so empty and bored right now. :( So dissapointed.

Have you ever been to a psychic?
If not, would you?

The rabies vaccine in the UK is crazy expensive, but it's very cheap in the US. Does anyone have any experience with this? Will we be able to do as the state vet suggests?
Edit: We won't be returning to Britain, so British laws don't apply :) We're heading to the US.

if you currently work in the food industry, what is your biggest gripe?
The gas tank opening for my car is on the
Have you ever parked at the gas station with the tank on the wrong side?
2. Are you wearing the right bra size? Are you sure? I recently found out that I am a 36C instead of a 36A. I consider myself to have a fairly small chest and I always thought a C cup was kinda busty, but apparently not as much as I thought. Either way, it's amazing to finally wear a bra that fits properly. :D
3. What color are your underwear? Mine are blue.
I'm starting in September and am scared! So any stories?
2) I live down in Sussex, I'm going to uni in Wolverhampton [obviously]. I bought my car in December and I'm very attached, lol. So, take car to uni, yay or nay?
3) Is there something you used to do frequently at home, that you had to give up at uni?
I've done TaeKwonDo for 4 years and I can't bear the thought of not having it in my life at university. =[
4) For those of you who took a gap year, how difficult was is to get back to essay writing/studying/etc?
I've been travelling and haven't done any proper work since March, and that wasn't schoolwork, so I'm a bit worried about it.
5) I am not the most social person, and I don't drink a lot. Not everyone at uni will be into drinking right? Any points for my first week?
6) Is there anything that I should take to university that I'm likely to forget?
ETA: [Because I forgot the rules, ok?] 7) Travelling to Boston, MA from New York City, NY at the end of August. Is it better to go by train or by Greyhound bus?

EDIT 'nother question:
Do your cats have a blast with the sheets when you're making your bed? Mine flip out and have so much fun chasing the sheet, chasing their tails, chasing my fingers, everything. It makes making the bed a chore, but they love it.
