1. This weekend I'll be watching my parents' house while they attend a funeral (of someone I don't remember seeing in years, not a relative). Do you think it's somehow "wrong" if I'm actually enjoying myself while staying at home? Because my logic tells me it's a funeral day and I shouldn't try to have fun :|
2. If you know about them, what is your enneagram type? Myers-Briggs type? Do you think it's possible to be type 4 and INTP? Because I think I am, but they.. don't correlate :|
3. What was the last book you read? What did you think about it? Is it worth reading?
edit: yes I know the first question might be stupid, but I just want to know. I tend to make far too big deal out of things and I can be quite hard on myself. These two combined - not good.
How many different languages and/or accents can you speak in? How many can you laugh in? Have you ever been speaking in another language or accent and then accidentally laughed in native tongue? Did anyone call you on it?
If you woke up tomorrow with the opposite sex's genitalia, what would you do?
Salsa or Queso?
Are you a low talker? (edit: if you talk really quietly, and people are constantly asking you what you just said. I'm thinking of Kramer's girlfriend in the Puffy Shirt episode of Seinfeld, if anyone watches Seinfeld, that kind of low-talker)
my best friend and I had a falling out last year, and today was her birthday, so me being me, I wished her a happy birthday. This lead to a long convo. Up until today we hadn't spoken at all. Just the occasional so how's annie/nikki doing..through friends. Seeing we are both moving on with our lives, I got married and she got engaged, we lost touch. I do miss my best friend and she claims to miss me also...
So do I make the first move in trying to re form our friendship? or just see what happens and let her rekindle it?
hi guys! i just found out yesterday that i get to be an RA at my university! horray!
but, i was wondering, for those of you who had RAs (resident advisors; they may be called somethign different at your college, basically, they are the "mother hens" of a floor/building/whatever and enforce rules, are there to solve problems etc), what are your experiences with them? were they friendly? did they let you get away with stuff? did you ever see or know about them breaking rules? all thoughts are welcome.
There is this kitteh, you see. This kitteh is tiny and cute and loves me and my boyfriend. She sits outside of our front door and meows and rubs on things and runs inside if we're not careful. We already have 2 cats - one was mad when she got inside and the other didn't care.
The problem is that this kitteh is a stray and we don't know if she's sick. She is rather thin but also has pregnant-mama-cat nipples despite looking like she's about 6 months old. She doesn't really have a pregnant-looking belly, though. She doesn't have fleas or ear mites, but I have no idea if she has worms or feline leukemia or anything else.
The other problem is that my boyfriend has a soft spot for street cats, especially those he feels "choose" their humans as this kitten seems to have done. His beloved cat Nunca was a New York street cat. She has recently retired to Kwajalein with his parents where she happily chases geckos and bugs, but he misses her. So of course this kitten looks JUST like Nunca, same type of fur, same coloring, same markings, and same facial expressions. He's started calling her Little Nunca. Awww.
So first of all, do you think she's pregnant? Do their nips pop out early on in pregnancy?
Also, should I keep her? I want to take her to the vet and at least get her checked out and fixed, but I know I won't want to give her up. My boyfriend is leaving the decision up to me. Argh.
Do you know what a time zone is? Do you know what time zone you are currently in? Do you know how many time zones are in your country?
In the city in which you reside, how many zip/postal codes are there? Also, are all Canadian postal codes 6 units long (A#A#A#) or are there some with 7 (A#A#A#A)? [I was always under the impression that there were six, but I came across one the other day for NB that was seven long and the guy hasn't replied to confirm this yet, so I was just wonderin'.]
What’s your cause? What’s the one thing that you feel so uber strongly about? Child abuse? Drunk driving? Animal welfare? Poverty? World hunger? Alzheimer’s research? Breast/Cervical/Lung/Anyothertype Cancer?
If you were required to volunteer your time with an organization for a “cause,” what would that cause be? Why?
TQC, I need some advice. Sorry in advance for tl;dr
My boyfriend recently invited me to move in with him in February when I turn 18. He'll be 20 and he has a decent, steady job. He lives about ten miles away from me. I think it's a good idea, because next August, I'll be moving three hours away and going to college. I think six months of living together will do our relationship good before I go away. I also think it will do me some good as far as living more independently and dealing with roommates before I try to do it in a dorm room three hours away. (He also lives with two other guys, both of which I get along with.) There's always the option of waiting until I finish senior year before moving in with him, but I would enjoy the extra few months and in college, I'm going to have to juggle the distractions of living with people and my school work. I'm only taking two classes my senior year so there'd be a lot less work to juggle and it could be practice for college. My boyfriend and I have been serious for some time now. By February, we'll have been together for over two years.
Do you think this is actually a good idea or do you think I'm justifying it to myself?
If you do think it's a good idea, how do you think I should bring it up to my mother? She can be very protective about things. I don't want to completely exclude her from this decision but I have a feeling her response will be along the lines of "There is no way I will allow you to do this." How can I make her understand that I'm asking for her input, not her permission?
how can i convince my sister to drive me into Minneapolis this weekend to watch the Manchester United/Manchester City game?
we're staying at my aunt's in Hudson, WI, which is about 20 minutes outside the St.Paul border. it would be about a 45 minute to an hour drive, depending on how close this pub my friend goes to is in relation to the direction we're coming from.
the game is at 7:15 Sunday morning.
BONUS QUESTION: why can't England be awesome like Spain and have their games in the late evening rather than the afternoon?
Okay okay, I'm keeping the stray kitten. I have tomorrow off so I'll take her to the vet, provided she shows up again tonight.
So, if it weren't for modern medicine, would you be dead? Why?
I probably wouldn't be dead, but I'm getting over a bladder infection and I can't imagine the pain and death I would feel if it weren't for delicious antibiotics. How did people DEAL with that? Just get kidney infections and die?
Me and her have a very hate relationship. I cant stand being in the same room with her, and she cant stand me either. Its to the point where I want to strangle her if I see her. And well oddly enough she invited me to go
NOW should I go and get her a gift? or should i just blow it off?
Yesterday as I was walking home from the park, a man in a car turned in front of me down a side street I was passing. I kept walking down the main road, but he made a u-turn and came from behind me and asked if I wanted a ride (I said no!!!) and turned on the street I live on, which I started to walk down. He made another u-turn and came in the opposite direction that I was walking and went around the bock in the middle of my street. He waited at the stop sign until I went into my house.
1) On a scale of 1-10, ten being the most, how absolutely freaked out would you be?! I'm nearing 9.
2) My boyfriend and sister said to call the cops, but what could they do? Is it even worth it, or are they overreacting?
Does it piss you off when you're crossing the street and someone drives right in front of you just missing hitting you with their car? Why the hell do they do it? Are they in such a hurry that they don't care if they hit someone? Do you think such drivers should have their drivers license revoked?
I can't even begin to explain how much it pisses me off. That happened to me today while crossing the street. I also once saw that happening to a woman who was crossing the street with a baby in a stroller. I wanted to fucking scream. IMO if you can't stop while pedestrians are crossing the street, you shouldn't have the right to drive.
You are rear ended in traffic. You get out, inspect the vehicle, and see that there is barely a paint smudge on your bumper. The other driver's car now has a badly dented hood. The driver apologizes profusely, and gives you the insurance information, etc, etc.
There is 2cm's of black down one side of my screen, and one centimeter on the other side & the top. Can you fix it?
My computer isn't a morning creature. If it has been turned off at the power-point, and then you try to turn it on, it will get into various stages of start up (most commonly to the point where I try & open FF) and then shuts down. Usually an average of 3 times. Can you fix it?
I just got my braces off after 6 & a half years (& my teeth are still shit). How long were your braces on for? Never had braces? Show me your teeth!
Has anyone been on a talk show (Maury, Montel, etc)? What sort of episode? What was it like?
Do they encourage you to go running offstage if you find out something shocking?
Sometimes I wish they'd put seatbelts on the chairs because it's annoying when they have to chase somebody offstage and beg them to stop bawling and come back. Although I guess somebody, somewhere must like that sort of thing or they could just edit it out.
If you could get anybody from your favorite fandom (everybody's got at least one fandom whether they know it or not) to get between the sheets with you, what you do with them once they're there is your own business, who would you choose?
alright: let me rephrase this because apparently my last post made me come of as a hardcore bollocked wackjob vegetarian nut-case.
what are your opinions on a non-vegetarian veternarian?
personaly- i don't really care, but i was interested.
Also- i'd like to point out, being vegetarian doesn't make you crazy.
------------------edit--------- i accidentaly deleted the last post while trying to edit. i mindlessly click 'okay' sometimes(and i know i'm setting myself up there). truly sorry. I;m a horrible crazed bitch, i can't help it.
if anyone is sad because they missed something: about the same question just worded in a way that made me sound like a crazed vegetarian wack-job. a bunch of comments calling me crazy, a stupid vegetarian, and a bitch. that should explain it all
1- What is the fluffiest, cuddliest thing nearest to you? 2- When's the last time you were in pain, and why? 3- Is it entirely too egotistical to use your own artwork for decorating? Why/why not? 4- Why am I craving healthy food wraps? Aren't cravings usually for things that are BAD for you?
1. I saw a funny looking dump truck on the way home and the little diamonds on it (that tell what kind of hazardous stuff it's hauling) were yellow and said RADIOACTIVE on them. What kind of radioactive stuff do you think it had in it? The address on the door said it came from somewhere in south Texas.
2. Anybody here ever been on Sarafem? Care to share your experiences? I'm going on the two weeks dose next month. I've never been on an antidepressant before.
3. I posted a poll in my personal journal and I'm not getting many responses on it. Is there a way to crosspost it here without having to redo all the coding? I'm thinking I can just stick in the poll ID and it'll come up, but I don't want to try that in case it doesn't work and you guys like, decide to flame me for it.
My friend has this sweater/jacket thing that I really want. She bought it at Old Navy last year. It's a really common design I see a ton of people wearing. They are generally pretty long (slightly past your hips), generally in black, and a heavy cotton material (pretty sure it's cotton. Maybe wool. Haven't looked closely). They have large buttons on them in two rows that are parallel to each other. It's long sleeve.
Anyone know what I'm talking about? I don't know what the jacket style is called. Any pictures would be wonderful if you don't know the name, either. I could bring it to a few stores and ask around.
I'm making my first scrapbook, of the summer camp I used to go to and now work at. This is the last summer and then it's closing, so I decided it was scrapbooking time. But I can't decide if I should caption "Alex and I do whatever" or "Alex and Hannah do whatever." Third person seems weird but it actually sounds better to me.
When you caption the pictures in your scrapbook, do you refer to yourself in the first or the third person?
I've never done much exercising. Maybe "no" exercising is more correct. So, random I decided to do sit ups, whilst listening to my pod casts. I honestly only did like... twenty? It didn't hurt at the time, but now - a morning after - its like... ouch.
It doesn't hurt, more of an ache.
So, two questions. Should it feel like that? I think it should because the muscles are like "oh, *now* I have to work?" and they're quite upset about it.
Second, should I not do any more till it stops aching, or is it okay to carry on?
What are some pet peeves you have with your friends? Any expressions they use that drive you batty? A good friend of mine always says "How's you?" and refers to my boyfriend as "your other half", both of which make me cringe each time I hear them.
Do you have any cute animal pictures you want to respond in a comment with? I feel burnt out from my thesis and need something cute to get me motivated again (I don't know either- but it's worth a shot, inspirational quotes all sound the same at this point).
I just washed and dryed the shirt I want to wear tomorrow. I took it out of the dryer when the dryer was still running...yet the shirt is all wrinkled. Like, REALLY wrinkled. I think it has to do with the ribbon-stripes (I guess?) in the shirt....but how do I fix it? I don't really have another shirt to wear! Will an iron fix this?! Any other tips?
Is it legal for an employer to fire someone because she was going to need maternity leave? My friend signed a contract to teach at a Charter School at the end of last month. Today the school contact her and informed her that they were tossing out her contract because she was pregnant and going to need maternity leave when the baby is born in 5 months. Doesn't that qualify as a type of discrimination?
So I just bought a new computer, an apple macbook. My old computer is a Sony. I have a few viruses on my old computer (I have norton buisness edition). I am DEATHLY worried that if I transfer some of my files (ie my downloaded music) onto my mac that it will get a virus. Should I be safe if I transfer my songs?
HEY GUYS, can BC pills prevent CANCER!?!? Sorry, that was terribly obnoxious... I was just amused after reading that post.
Ok, onto the real questions: 1. If you have a PS2, what are some of your favorite games on it? My boyfriend and I just bought one from a friend and besides every Guitar Hero possible and DDR, we don't have any games for it, haha.
2. And, if you have a Wii ... same question? My parents just got one, haha, and we currently only have "Wii Sports" - which I am obsessed with. So, good games for the Wii to occupy me when I come home on breaks?
3. What is your favorite form of exercise?
4. What's your favorite thing you've done this month?
What's your favorite hand-drawn animation movie that's not Disney? It's a tie between four movies. Ferngully, The Swan Princess [which for the longest time I thought was Disney], Once Upon a Forest, and The Pebble and The Penguin.
2] For those with long hair: Run your fingers through your hair. Look at your hand. Did any hair come out? Yes. A lot. I am going to be bald someday.
3] Does anyone know any brand other than Cupcake Cult and Loungefly that has cute happy food things? Preferably with a site I can order off of. I am curious.
4] Where are you most ticklish? I'm not ticklish. My feet are a little sensitive on the bottoms, but it's not uncomfortable or anything. My mom and grandmother are not ticklish either.
I am with several Sims playing people and NONE of them know the answer to this. Damn non-internet-geeks!
What is the name of that program mod/hack thing made for The Sims 2, and you can go in and change LOADS of stuff about a certain sim in your neighbourhood? The main thing I remember is being able to alter relationships between certain sims. It was a seperate program you ran as opposed to a menu or something incorporated into the game. It's REALLY popular, I just can't for the life of me remember what it's called.
Thanks in advance!
ETA: QUESTION ANSWERED! Thank you to those who responded :D
Does anyone know the title or artist of the song that played during the first few seconds of the latest episode ('Tastes Like A Ho Ho') of the FX show 'Damages' when the character Katie was shown in the Palm Beach nightclub? I tried googling the lyrics I could make out, but nothing came up, and I've had no luck anywhere else on the internet. It's driving me insane! Please to be assisting me!
It's the middle of the night, a friend and I had been drinking, we went to bed, about 1/2 an hour ago I got up and discovered that he's fucking VANISHED. He's nowhere in the house, his phone, wallet and car keys are all still here, and he obviously didn't leave a note or tell anyone that he was going anywhere. He's mildly intoxicated and it's raining. I've contacted friends who live in the area, they have no idea.
