I live in Illinois, and my mom just bought me a plane ticket to fly to New York  in 5 hours. My husband told me he would drive me before mom bought the ticket. Now he's saying he won't drive me to Ohare airport because he doesn't want me to go, and says I can't spend 100 dollars on parking (i'm staying there for a week) Now, I can't waste my mom's 300 dollars round trip ticket. So, any ideas?

I'm going on a very short camping trip this weekend with some people who work with me at a radio station.  One of the guys offered to pick up some alcohol for me while he went to get some (we live in a dry county, and you have to go outside the limits to actually buy stuff.).  So... what would you ask him to get if you were in this situation?

1. How the hell did anyone ever pick their major/career??
2. Did you change your mind alot of the year/s?

I'm starting my second year at the community college this august, and so far I have just been takin the core classes. I seriously need to start thinking about what major I want, or what degree I want to pursue. I am so completely lost. I have always wanted to be a teacher, but I dont know how comfterable I would feel being responsible for so many kids. I love accounting (took a course for a year in high school) but I would hate being in front of a desk all day. I am really good at graphic and web design and have won some awards from that but again with the desk thing. ehh. =/ I feel like I'm just gonna go to school and its gonna be a waste, since I'm taking a bunch of classes I might not need.

3. Last question, how long after you got your degree did it take to find a job?

1) What is your favorite non-alcoholic beverage?

4) How are you feeling?
I'm quite sleepy

5) Is anyone else excited for the Simpson's movie?
I am, I can't stop singing the Spider Pig thing

6) Did anyone read the 7th Harry Potter book in under 8 hours?
I did, and I was disappointed in it.

What does your shower routine consist of? How long does it take?

Mine takes like 35-40 minutes and I always get bitched at for it, but I don't know what the hell I'm doing to make it so much longer than everyone else. (FTR: shampoo, condition, general scrubbing, shave, brush teeth, wash face and ears, rinse) Do other people just get wet and they're finished or what?

ETA: My SO informs me it's more like 30 minutes. Which is still horrifying.

Because I'm Cheap and google fu failed

1. Is there a safe and cheap way for me to modify a Bike so I can carry my dog *dog in question is on icon* with me on it? 

I would prefer to have her run beside me, but she is small, and fat, and while she could use the work out, I'm afraid that she wouldn't 'agree' with going in a straight line, and would either run underneath the bike, or do something that would make me fall off of it.

2. What do you think of http://www.angelsonwheels.com/umbrellas.htm that product? Have you ever seen anyone use it before?


1. All I've found are expensive attachments, and the roll behind things. I would prefer to have my dog infront of me so I can grab her if she tries to attempt bike suicide. 

2.  Dear god no. and NO! I don't even use an umbrella when I'm outside!

Okay. So, my boss has taken this strange habbit of hitting me 'playfully' when I do something that annoys her. First time it was on my arm and it stung, the second time was a few moments ago on my head. I told her to stop and but she kept trying to hit my head. It's not that it hurt, it's just unwelcome. I don't like her very much to begin with, but I try not to show it. How do I get her to stop this without causing too much of a scene? I know it's only happened twice, but I don't want it to be a real habbit.

Thanks to a debate my sister and I had, here are some questions:

paper cuts ahoy

According to something I heard on the news last night, the recent release of Harry Potter & the Deathly Hollows has hit some fans in an unexpected way. Several hundred books, so far, have been reported missing pages or having them repeated or in an odd order. As you can imagine, this has caused a lot of civil unrest.

Rowling is supposed to make some kind of statement about this later in the week.

If you've bought the book, was your copy complete?

3. Do you wear scented deodorant? If not, do you find it difficult to find unscented deodorant? I swear, every time I find an unscented brand that I actually like, it gets discontinued and replaced with some stupid scent like "fresh flowers" or "chai tea". WTF? That is the last thing I want to smell like. The other day I settled for Dove's "original clean" scent and I smell freaking gross.

do you take calcium supplements/vitamin supplements?
if so, what kind + why?

i take 1 viactiv multi-vitamin and 2 caramel viactivs every morning. the multi-vitamin one is kinda gross but it actually provides adult nutrition in a chew (i used to take kiddie vitamins, but does a 4 year old really have the same requirements as an 18 year old?). The normal viactivs taste like candy (at least the raspberry, chocolate mint, caramel flavors, dont know about the rest) so i always eat that extra one..haha

i take them because i dont drink milk and just..do.

Evil Dead The Musical

Did you know that there was an  Evil Dead the Musical? I only found out about it like, yesterday, and it sounds totally hilarious and brilliant. I love warped musicals.
http://www.myspace.com/evildeadthemusicalsoundtrack here's four of the songs. There's also a song called "An Ode to an Accidental Stabbing" which also totally makes me laugh.


What other 'warped' musicals do you like? I love Cannibal The Musical and AvenueQ and 'Tanz Der Vampire' even though I can't exactly fully understand German. I just looked at translations,  and enjoyed it in German. :) I also like Spamalot, a  lot.

I'm listening to this song now that I've not heard until the other day, it's called "tick tick boom", it seems... though it is labelled "30/90" .. I don't know what musical it's from as it's not labelled as what it is. And... what exactly  does 30/90 mean? I get that it's a song about your 30th birthday...  does it mean that you're likely to live until 90 years old? So it's year 30 out of 90?

If I change my name on my license, is bringing a copy of our marriage certificate going to be sufficient for leaving and reentering the country with my passport being in my maiden name? (Copies are only $2 a piece so that's no problem).

There's this kid that's IMing me about this paper he's trying to write and he needs help with it. Now normally, I'd help him all I could, or at least some, if it was something I knew about. But this paper he's writing is about masturbating.

I might not even mind discussing that with him but he's always trying to ask me out and he used to ask me for sexy pictures so I'm not very comfortable with talking to him about my girl parts. Specially 'cos I don't trust him and part of me doesn't believe he really has to write this essay.

But nobody else wants to talk to him about it, and he's not allowed to use the internet as a source, and the library didn't have any books about how girls masturbate. And he doesn't know anything about it, I suspect because he doesn't have much success with girls (and I can see why.)

Every time I tell him "no, I'm sorry, I'm not going to help you" he says, "no, no, I don't mean to sound like I'm pressing you or anything, I'm just worried about my paper, and I do understand your limits, but if you want to answer some questions for me that would be great."

(This kid is so persistent. When I was young and stupid--I still am--he asked me out. I said no. He kept doing it, continuously for three hours. I caved. I figured he'd take me to a movie or something, and being asked out meant I wasn't necessarily committed to him. As soon as I said yes, I realized it was a mistake because he called me his girlfriend, which meant I was committed to him. So I broke up with him two days later. He wanted a girlfriend so badly. I was the third girl he asked out in two weeks.)


I finally logged off that screen name. Luckily he only knows the one I don't use much.


So what would you do? Would you be comfortable talking to him about that stuff? Since he's creepy and awkward, would you block him? Or would you put him off and lie to him to avoid hurting his feelings too much (like I did)? Do you think it's true about the paper, or is he just being awful to me?

EDIT: So if he continues to bring it up I AM NEVER TALKING TO HIM AGAIN.

random i'm sure.

It occurred to me that there ought to be a site where you could go and anonymously push a button if you are feeling depressed or angry but unable to unburden yourself to another living being.

And the site would tally how many times the button had been pressed that day or something useless.

Is there any site remotely like this already in existence, that you know of?
