II. Do you care?
III. Do you think we a) Won the Space Race, b) Lost the Space Race, or c) just got Lost in Space?
IV. If you could go to space for free, would you?
That is all . . .
I'm going through the online presentation right now, and it sounds almost too Pleasantville to be true, but I've been to the "Disney" neighborhood and it really is Pleasantville--so, anyone have any feedback/experience?
Aside from The Diary of Anne Frank, Night, Number the Stars, and Twenty and Ten, do you know of any (I don't know if I want to use the word 'good', but you know what I mean, right?) powerful, moving stories set during the Holocaust/WWII?
Dos] What is the most lyrically ridiculous song you know?
The Spill Canvas - This is For Keeps =[. It's about an emo vampire.
Tres] What's the last thing you dropped?
2) That being said, which one of you had explosive bowel movements all over the toilet at my work?
Now that I've officially squicked -myself- out,
3) What do you think of Victoria Beckham's haircut? What about other women trying to emulate it?
4) What song are you listening to at the moment? If you're not listening to music, what sound is most prevalent where you are right now? If you're deaf, I sorry ;_;
If you don't then what do you use to keep your money or credit card number secure?
Edit with a completely unrelated question: Who is your favorite Greek god/goddess? Why?
What's the last thing you did that felt really good?
ETA: I shut my computer. I went to bed. I lay there for an hour. I got out of bed because I was annoyed. I posted.
If we lived in a 24-hour society, (the approximate same number of people awake at all hours of the day, based on their preference, business all open for 24 hours...) and you could revolve your life and schedule on any time format you'd like...
what time frame what you prefer to sleep?
what time frame would you prefer to work?
what times would you make your meals?
In a 24 hour society, would you pick dating partners based on whether or not their schedule already matched yours or would you compromise schedules? What would be a good "date time" to coincide with your preferred schedule?
I think I'd prefer to sleep from like 6am to 2p. That's what I always did during summers before I ever had to work. ha.... and still revert back to on occasion when I have many consecutive days off.
Maybe work from 4pm to midnight.
I'd probably want to date somebody who was already on my schedule. I guess 2 AM would be my peak dating time. I like 2AM. Even though HIMYM says nothing good happens after 2AM.
2. Favorite video game character EVER?
3. Favorite tv show character right now?
TQC, why does god hate me?
ETA: Why does my keyboard keep leaving out letters in groups of two?
I'm sick of cooking the same thing week in, week out.
Any suggestions for yummy meals/online recipes?

2. On a scale of 1-10 how has your day gone? (Or yesterday, if you just woke up, like me) [Yesterday was a 7]
3. One of my roommates left us (mainly me) a post-it on the mirror saying "PLEASE don't leave food in the sink!!!". I've decided to handle this like a mature adult and start a 'post-it on the mirror' war. What should I write?
I'm excited. I don't know why, but I feel like I have something that I should be looking forward to. What am I looking forward to?
The only thing that was on TV when I woke up was Pokemon and it was an episode from the first season, which I thought was awesome because that's when i was obsessed with it. What were you really into when you were little? Do you still think it's cool now?
Why is it that people think it's okay to walk into a room (bedroom, office, classroom, etc) without knocking, but if you don't knock when entering a room of theirs they get pissed?
2.) If it's the latter, have you ever heard any cover songs you liked better? (What were they?)
I usually like the original versions of songs, and I haven't found a cover I like better yet... except for William Shatner's epic cover of "Common People."
If you act differently online than you do in real life... which one do you believe is more accurately "you"? Is the online persona more honest and free, or is the real life persona more concrete and real?
You're in the process of breaking in new shoes by walking around (let's say eight blocks or so) and your feet are absolutely infuriated with you - blisters are inevitable, but you are walking near a campus and are weary of being viewed as a "dirty hippie" by your passing peers.. Do you...
EDIT: although an interesting conversation about dirty hippies, it is worth noting that by not wearing shoes, there are other dangers to encounter: glass, icky things, cigarettes butts, hot sidewalks. So by not wearing shoes, there is more than the possibility of being grouped as a "dirty hippie" and moreso, this is a question about getting blisters or walking barefoot.
Does it bother you?
Do you correct them?
Do they listen to you and correct themselves in the future, or ignore you?

I love my husband/wife/bf/gf, but ________.
2. What's the last game you played?
3. What's the last thing you cooked?
(I'd say perhaps his girlfriend went into labor, but she's not due until January and she's had a very uneventful pregnancy thus far...plus I think he could leave a note or call or something...)
2.) What event(s) and/or person(s) do you think have most defined/shaped you?
(The birth and death of my sister.)
3.) Do you think the child you once were would approve of the person you have become?
(Occasionally, but probably not on the whole.)
4.) What ideals did you have as a youngster that you've completely thrown out the window since?
(I always thought I'd stay a virgin until I was married.)
5.) Have you ever bought or sold anything on etsy.com? Would you recommend it?
(I've recently started making jewelry and wondering if it might sell better on etsy than on eBay, since it's more focused on handcrafted items.)
Do you try to persuade the other person to see your side?
Do you just give up and accept that they think one thing and you think another?
How does this change when it's online vs IRL?
TQC, TELL ME HOW YOU ARGUE.
2. Is your current job your *career*?
3. Do you feel you are compensated fairly for your job?
4. Do you enjoy your job?
5. My good friend is getting married in 2 days. A friend of ours and his wife RSVPed a while ago. He just announced yesterday that b/c he got an opportunity to come into town early for work, his wife didn't want to drive up by herself (10-12 hours), so she is not coming. He has not told this to the bride and groom, only other friends. Do you think this is rude?

What do you think? I'm looking to spend about 20-30 bucks. Is a gift card to Amazon or Borders too lame/generic? What about a sleek flask? Too "drunk on the go" style?
EDIT: Flasks it is!
You see, a guy I know is making a video and characters meet on a teen forum, so he's getting us to create a fake teen forum. We're all in our 20s and were never the stereotypical teenagers. We were all geeks.
Would any of you be interested in joining in with the fake teen forum? We're just spamming with interesting thread titles and whacking keyboards for the content, for the most part.
What would be some good themes for a calendar to have?
A group of artists and I are trying to create a calendar for charity, but we need a theme for it, that is pretty broad and can be interpreted in different ways. (So, not a theme like 'landscapes' where obviously it can then just be landscapes). Some of us are photographers, some draw or paint.
How would you decorate my baby's room that isn't for a baby?

I can't imagine that taking the ring out would be good for the holes (you know, getting wax in them), nor can I imagine putting wax around the ring, since you're basically missing most of the hair that needs to be shaped.

3. I just found out two of my co-workers were married to each other. What's the most surprising, yet obvious thing you've found out recently?
4. Any plans for the weekend?
Have you ever played apples to apples?
Has a wild animal ever invited itself into your house? (The squirrel we feed decided to come inside this morning...yikes)
What about you?
1. How do you react and what do you do? Leave it be and get on with your blissful life? Keep pressing and possibly end the relationship because of this secrecy? Conduct your own investigation?
If so, will you please share what it was?
If not, do you hope or expect to have such an event in your lifetime?
Do you like where you currently live (the actual physical structure)?
What do you like most about it? What would you change about it if you could?
Less than two hours later I was hungry again. Drank a glass of water. Still hungry.
So i at a gala apple and a few more almonds.
And now I am hungry again.
wtf, TCQ? 1.) Is this normal?
2.) How often do you get hungry/eat?
*EDIT* and Im definitely not pregnant :D
a) when do you think they are at their prettiest? (50% changed, 100% changed, etc)
b) How changed are the trees in your area?
3. Mozza sticks, food of the gods?
4. What is the longest you have driven in a day/sitting? (You can include food/pee breaks, otherwise most of us wouldn't be able to go much longer than 4 hours or so)

Okay, I think I've figured out a list of possible songs. What should I sing for karaoke?
Also, when you lose weight, where do you think it goes?
i haven't had a job interview in like a year and a half. advice?
Also, while we're on subject, where can I move to (in the USA) that has a stable environment that's nearly FREE of natural disasters such as floods, hailstorms, quakes, and tornados/noreasters/hurricanes/typhoons.

2. do a sufficient number of kids in your town still trick or treat?do you feel halloween is becoming a less celebrated holiday all around?
3. what do you usually do on halloween and what are your plans for this year?
1. probably big boy (from austin powers movies), i kinda look like him. however recently i started wearing my facial hair in this rednecky/old english style mutton chop way so i might be an old style cop or butcher guy. i wanna get dressed as the cop and go downtown wasted blowing a whistle and like crossing people who are barhopping and shit, that would be fun.
2. no, when i was a kid it seemed like the streets were littered with trick or treaters. i could just be older but seriously i saw like zero in my hometown last year. we used to make a huge mess of that town. so yea maybe it is dying, hopefully trick'r treat (that movie) will be a huge hit this year and revive everybodies interest. hopefully something does it.
3.well everything, watch scary movies and smoke extra pot all month for starters. as for during halloween if im not working i could go scare lttle kids with these friends of mine which ive always wanted to do (they go all out), do that cop thing i mentioned or whatever...ill definitely wind up wasted at some halloween party of course, thats a given. And dont forgot about HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS, for those of you who are into horror and not living in Fl you are gonna be missing out this year.
I am a Sunday-after-your-period-starts starter, FYI. Anyways. I took the first week out of all three packs, then moved on to the middle weeks, which I'm more than half way into, and intended to then take the last three weeks of each pack, therefore giving me 9 weeks of freedom and bliss.
Well. Today I started spotting. It's not a normal red color or anything. I am trying REALLY hard not to gross anyone out but I really want you ladies to advise me.
My QUESTION: Should I just fucking quit taking the pills on Saturday, scrap the remainig pills and start over next Sunday? Do you think this will trigger a full period? I don't think it will mess with pregnancy risk, since it will just be the typical 7 days without hormones, which is fine as well all know.
HALP ladies. I don't want to be on my period during me wedding and I DON'T want to spot for three weeks. :(
Things that are labels "traditional" tend to be viewed in a negative, backward way by many people. What are some things that you consider to be traditional, yet view as positive and maybe better than "modern" ways or things?
ETA: Forgot to mention I already have an illegal copy of photoshop, but it won't let me register it w/the given serial number so I can't use the imageready stuff.
Also: I just found "The Artful Animator" or something and it did what I wanted it to do, but it's only a 21-day free trial so you can keep suggesting stuff if you want :)
So, the question is: What should I change it to?
Serious and silly answers welcome. :)
Is there anything that could make my body feel physically thirsty, even though I'm sure that after all the liquids I've drank I can't be?
I went to the doctor a while ago complaining about headaches, and he put it down to stress (from exams and such) which I could agree with. At the moment my head kills (even post-Ibuprofen), and I'm not under an awful lot of stress at the moment.
(I also have OCD which gives me hypocondria, so I'm never really sure if I am ill, or my head is making me think I am... But my head *does* hurt and I always seem to want a drink.)
WHO GETS THE JOB?
only criterion : the person has to be alive, so no Marcel Marceau, although he would be a good choice IMHO.
She's the woman who interfaces with the press on behalf of the white house. You probably see her on TV all the time. Tony Snow used to have the job.
my answers below.
Halloween :D :D :D yayyy
Also...what will you guys be dressing up as for Halloween?
So my boyfriend of nearly 4 years, and I have mutual friends. Most of which are male. I have always had more male friends than female friends, even before I met him.
Tonight, I have nothing to do at all, and my boyfriend is working. One of the guys who we hang out with on a regular basis, and whom I have a couple classes with, asked me if I would like to go to the campus "bar" with him and all our other friends to see a band that's playing there. I know for a fact that him asking me out is completly innocent and he has no "interest" in me. I was quite happy that I got invited out, as I never really go out at all, and when I do, it's with my boyfriend and usually what *he* wants to be doing.
I just got off the phone with my boyfriend, and had asked him if he minded if I went to hang out with some people tonight for a little bit.
He was silent and then said, "you want to go out, with MY guy friends"
So, me, being a little shocked at his pissy reply said, "fine, if you don't want me to, I don't have to go"
And he just said, "fine, whatever" and hung up.
Now to me, this is nonsense. Is it so wrong for me to go out (I wouldn't even be drinking more than a couple coolers or something). This guy HONESTLY wouldn't even think of trying anything, and even if he did, he know's I'd back hand him. How do other guys view this? If you and your own gf had mutual friends, would you mind if she hung out with them?
I don't see what the big deal is. I figure if he trusts me, he shouldn't have such a fit...Or am I just completly out of bounds to want to hang out with guys, period? Is this wrong?
ETA: I forgot to mention, that I have like, NO friends other than our mutual friends, while he on the other hand has many. He has issues with me wanting to go out with other girls to bars, clubs, etc and never really wants to hang out with any of my old friends from highschool...while I on the other hand have no choice. We hang out with his friends whether I want to or not :/
Did any of your schools have a gifted/talented program?
Did it have a cool name or was it just called "The Gifted/Talented Program"?
Were you in it?
What kind of cool stuff did you do?
Yes, starting in 3rd grade and carrying on through 8th grade.
It was called "Summit".
LOTS OF COOL STUFF. I don't even remember most of it but we did ropes courses, lots of Brain Teasers (Thinklab, Red Lemmings, etc), awesome computer programs such as Dr. Brain and some music one I forgot the name of, and Knowledge Masters Open. I am sure I am forgetting stuff but it was AWESOME and I sincerely hope your G/T programs were as awesome as mine so I don't end up being some huge braggart.
Will you participate in a game? Here are the rules: Comment to the person above you with a compliment AND an insult (these can be totally fake, made up, joking, serious, whatever).
eta: actually reply to their comment so we all know who is being addressed. Any replies to the post I will assume are directed at me. D:
Tomorrow my classes have been canceled so our program can join an all-day tour of several major web design studios. Going to the tour is optional but all but 1 or 2 people are attending.
I know it might be beneficial to go to this thing career-wise, but it's in the city and it would take a long commute and waking up very early to get there. It would also be good from a class bonding/social networking point of view. If i don't go i know the teacher & everyone will wonder wtf my problem is.
But somehow the idea of having the class computer lab all to myself for an entire day seems more appealing. We have a great deal of homework and this would be my only real free day to do it since i have to work all weekend. If i went to the city i would have to cram all my homework in afterwards and come in every day after work (tired, worn out already) and stay until late at night. If i don't go i'll be able to get a good sleep and finish almost everything, and free up my weekend to maybe relax for once. And practice Flash, because Flash is a little fucking bitch.
Am i really better off staying behind?
2.) Was it called anything cool? What sort of nicknames did you have for it?
3.) Were you in it?
4.) What sort of cool things did you do?
I don't mean to be an annoyance but I have to work a night shift and every morning when I am attempting to sleep I am waken by your music or I cant even get to sleep. I was just wondering if you can keep the music to a low or turn off the base. It basically rattles the walls.
Thank you for your understanding, I hope this is not a problem
Now, I know that I don't blast music in the morning. They don't call me Zombie for nothing. At the most, I sit and watch a few minutes of the morning news.
What should I do? Should I ignore it? Should I address it? I'm assuming it's from the apartment below me. I'm out of here at the end of the month, anyway, but I don't want any strikes against me.
Turns out it went for $22.50 in a last minute bid war!
1. What's the last windfall you've gotten?
2. What're you saving money for?
(I'm trying to earn enough to pay for my GRE and grad school applications and transcripts and all that jazz. After that my proceeds go to renting a cabin with a bunch of friends for a weekend "retreat")
What's the last unnecessary purchase that you blew your money on?
I was feeling depressed and ugly the other day so I went out and spent $200 on 2 sweaters at BCBG. Naturally they do not allow returns for cash. I am an idiot.
Do you know how to knit or crochet? If you've tried both, which do you find easier?
I'm trying to learn how to do both right now. Thus far I've had much better luck with knitting. With crocheting, I get confused about which chain to put the hook in, but I really want to learn how to do it so I can make amigurumi.
do any of you know where i could possibly find the killers font?
2. Is my icon creepy or cute? :(

And what's considered casual in an office environment? I'm really a T-shirt, jeans, flip-flops kind of a girl but I really don't that will be acceptable...
Our internet is acting wacky. Google won't work sometimes (sometimes for hours), many YouTube videos just load eternally with no play, and other main sites like Mapquest, MSN, TMZ (lol), etc. don't work 90% of the time either.
What is going on? We've cleared all our cookies/cache/whatever, and that helped slightly. But now it's going bad again. My husband says we probably need to reinstall our Internet Explorer (the newer version, whatever that is...7?). He just hasn't been home long enough to do it and I'm afraid to mess with it. Do you think that would help? Any other ideas?
I can live without Mapquest, but not Google or Youtube. :(
ETA: oops, meant to include this; not working = "connecting" for at least 1 full minute before going to "Cannot Locate Site" or "Address Not Valid" (it is). :/
I'm watching the SHARKS v. Oilers game and there were people shouting "Let's go Oilers!" during the moment of silence for Billy Warwick. Just seems kinda dumb to me.
Anyone have a family feud going on?
In family conflicts, do you tend to act as a mediator, as a listener, or do you tell everyone to keep you out of it?
wtf is with dudes fervently supporting pro-choice? i mean, i really want to do a survey and compare the frequency of guys that are pro-choice and also tell their girlfriends (or, whoever,) "But it just doesn't feel as good when I wear a condom.."
sure, maybe some care about women's rights, but come on now, really? it may be a moral question for a woman, but it's only a matter of inconvenience for a man. not to mention trying to get a girl to date you after telling them you're pro-life in this day and age.
i dunno. maybe i'm wrong. i just don't buy the moral high ground argument.
eta: i didn't think i was being too vague, but i'll rephrase more bluntly; to what degree or percentage do you think men who say they are pro-choice, say so simply to get laid? and/or not have to be responsible for any side-effects of said act?
So, do you know who Bradley Trevor Greive is?
Do you have any of his books?
YES I DO, obviously, since I'm making this post about him.
The Blue Day Book, The Simple Truth About Love. I also bought The Incredible Truth About Motherhood for my mom, though that book is probably better suited for people who are about to become mothers and not those who have already been mothers for 20+ years ;)

And since we're doing the Halloween motif all over the place today, what would you do in the following scenario?
Teenagers (ages 14-17) come to your door supposedly trick-or-treating - they are not wearing any discernible costumes, nor do they say "trick-or-treat" or anything of that sort - they just stand there with their hands or pillowcases out. Do you give them a treat, or do you tell them to beat it in some fashion or another?
If you choose the latter, please share how creative you might be in telling them to am-scray!
who is your least favorite TQC member? ..why?
Will you post a picture of a stupid person you know doing a gang sign?
Seeing as it's a slow time of day, i'll post a silly question.
There's a boy at my bus stop in the year above me.
He's nice enough, we don't have much in common, and the conversation far from flows, but it's someone to talk to, eh?
BUT, he's getting rather overfriendly (in a harmless way).
However, i'm really not interested.
So, TQC, should I try and get rid of him, and just leave it to chats at the bus stop? (He keeps coming and sitting with me at lunch, and its quite akward,
or do I keep on talking to him, suffer the akwardness and just ignore any advances?
And also, how do I make it clear i'm not interested, without saying as much?
My boyfriend jonchiz67, and I are thinking about learning a language togehter. What do you think is a good language for us to learn and why?
On a similar vein how does one stop said cat from spraying on one's front door?
I've got three.
My lil bit (baby brother) at all of 12, turning tomy parents and asking, with the innocence of a child, "what's a hermaphrodite?"
My best friends mother turning to me and asking... after I had told her- jokingly, as I had thought she hadn't been serious, that no, nuns were not there for the priests to "be" with them physically... "But isn't that why they marry priests?" *awkward* "No, they marry God/Jesus (I'm a Lutheran, I don't stay "current" on the phrasings of these things), and God/Jesus don't come down to get "jiggy wid it"... *painfully awkward* Then ensued much laughter, and tears from laughter, for a good hour... unfortunately we were in white castle and all of the drive thru people must have thought we were nurts.
A non-religious friend trying to understand my religious denomination. "So.... you mean Lutheran's AREN'T confused Catholics".... wouldn't have been so bad, but there were a few other Lutherans around and we (THANKFULLY) being irony loving people (not the rule, just pure luck in this instance) let the awkward silence hold before busting a gut and trying to very calmly explain that NO we are NOT confused Catholics.
There are a couple of other Lutheran/non-Lutheran awkward moments that I have had... but I won't share them all... I don't want to make anyone uncomfortable.
Are there subjects that you refuse to discuss with friends/family/at all?
My answer: HELL YES! I don't like talking religion, or politics with people. Not even my own daddy, and we have the same basic political/religious belief system. I don't talk politics EVAR, unless I know the person that I am talking to isn't going to yell/berate/try to persuade me, and they have a sense of humor.
DID YALL MISS ME???
I get the feeling yall didn't even notice I was gone.... but I'm okay with that. xD

Would you go to a progressive-metal murder mystery about a dark circus?
If so, can you help me with these questions:
2. Consider the square well, with well depth V0, and width 2a, symmetrically placed about x = 0. Discuss this problem from two viewpoints, and use this question to improve your notes on this topic.
First, measure the energy of a bound state from the bottom of the well, and then consider this as a problem for 'free particles' in the momentum representation. Show that a) [p,H] = 0, and that the expectation value of the momentum p = ± hk; b) outside the well, when E < V0, k is imaginary, so that u(x) = exp(±kx), with k = ik, in the x- or "real space" representation. In addition, give the reasons why we need to choose just one of the solutions, not a linear combination of the two, outside the well.
Second, consider the more usual starting point for describing a deep well, with V = 0 outside the well, and -V0 inside the well. Show that, if E < 0: c) inside the well, u(x) = Asin(kx) or Bcos(kx), but that it cannot be Asin(kx) + Bcos(kx), with A and B non-zero; d) Derive the equations needed to determine k and (A or B) by considering the boundary conditions on the wave function at either x = a or -a; e) Work out the k-value and the energy of the second odd-parity excited state if V0 is very large.
4. A particle of mass m is subject to an attractive double-delta potential V(x) = -V0[d(x-a) + d(x+a)], where V0 >0. Consider only energies E < 0.
a) Obtain the wave function of the bound states. You do not need to normalize the function.
b) Derive equations from which the energy eigenvalues can be obtained.
c) Estimate the ground state energy for the limits a → 0 and a → ∞. You may assume that the wavefunction is even.
Edit: Nevermind I spent like an hour or some awful time making this one.
would you like me to help? POST A PICTURE, and i'll take care of the rest.

Remember that post I made a few weeks ago with the stupid huge welt on my upper arm? It went away, but now my lower arm is covered in hives. The same arm, but there are a like three on my other arm and on the backs of my hands. Out of nowhere. And I wasn't even at my mother-in-law's this time... WHAT AM I ALLERGIC TO? Srs answers only, pls.
Oh, and the apartment people installed new windows/screens/balcony doors this week and it still smells like polyurethane in here, despite everything being opened and the fans circulating the air. I'm going to guess that candles + fumes would be a bad idea. Any other ideas?
What cities across the US have the nicest underpasses? The underpasses out here SUCK. No room. If you tried to sleep under them and roll around in your sleep, you'd wind up kissing someone's tire... and if there was ever any impact on them, you'd be the 1st to wind up a wobbling pancake like Wylie Coyote.
Do you like this cycle so far?
Who is your favorite? Who do you hate?
WHO IS GETTING THEIR HEAD SHAVED?
Also, it it bedtime yet?
eta - I fail at polls. ANYWAY
Would you post a picture of your boobs so that a mod would unban you from a community?
I missed it the other times its been on, and I wanted to get a copy of it, but don't know the exact name and googlefu has failed me :(
2. What are the chances that my boyfriend who has had a vasectomy has gotten me pregnant? My body keeps doing weird things and we keep thinking that *maybe* he has super sperm and such.
3. a project i have due tomorrow is giving me huge problems, and it is waaay too late to email the teacher to ask for help. would it be okay to email him and explain why i haven't got it done? i think that i'm going to barely pass this class anyways. i would have gotten it done earlier, but i've had to work, but apparently thats not a good enough excuse for my school, because we're supposed to 'delegate time wisely'
4. Also, how is one to delegate time wisely to do things when you don't have any time? or is this a catch 22 thing. (catch 22 has haunted my entire life)
2.if you were the boss, what would the punishment for child abuse be?
3.do you agree with pit bull bans?

I fly all the time but over the past few years, I've developed sinuses, apparently. I can't handle descending on airplanes - it hurts me LIKE CRAZY. I spent my entire honeymoon IN HUGE PAIN and an echo in my ear.
Mind you, at the time I smoked like a chimney - which i'm sure effects your sinuses - but I quit 3 months ago cold turkey.
Do you think my sinuses will be better now? Do you have any suggestions (other than gum which just doens't work for me -- because this is HARD CORE PRESSURE i feel)?
What's the strangest text you've gotten?
Also, my bird (the one in my icon) has started humping this large bead that is on his rope perch. He won't stop, he seems obsessed.
Do your animals display embarassing behavior like this?
1) Would you be offended if you lived in a downstairs apartment and your upstairs neighbor pounded on the floor to tell you to please be quiet?
2) Would you be offended if you lived in an upstairs apartment and your downstairs neighbor pounded on the ceiling to tell you to please be quiet?
I won a romantic getaway for two to Las Vegas. I get to choose whenever I want to go within the next year, and they promise I'll always have a room reserved. Anyone ever stayed in Tahiti Village? I believe that's where we will be.
But they said I'd get my package, detailing the trip and who to call, within 9 business days. Today was day 9 and I haven't got it, yet. Damn radio station probably wrote my address down wrong :-(
I need to see overhead shots of the town I work in because there seems to be no real way for the train to get to the train station but it still gets there and I need to figure it out. Google Earth won't work on my computer because it's outdated. :(
2) I'm growing tired of my current icon. Which of my icons should I start using?
P.S. I have none with pumpkins and am too lazy to make one. Plus, where I live, Thanksgiving is closer than Halloween so a turkey might be more seasonal.
should i redo it orange?
should i do it pink (breast cancer awareness month, yo)?
or should i stop making my hair silly colors, and have my natural color (dirty blond)?
ETA: i have had my hair pink before and it was so awesome...but then if i do it pink, i can't be phillip j. fry (from futurama) for halloween!!!
ETA #2: ok, i think it's been decided! ORANGE again!
I used to love this show when I was younger. This girl's dad was an alien or an astronaut or something, and she communicated with him via a glowing crystal. I think. Does anyone know what the fucking hell I'm talking about?
12. Did anything crazy happen where you live today?
(There was a shooting at a law firm the next town over from mine this afternoon and the guy's still holding hostages in the building. Pretty scary shit.)
29. Care to paste what's on your clipboard right now?

What information, exactly, is required for someone to run a credit check on you? Do they need your entire SSN, or are the last four digits enough?
Is there a .gov website someone could help me find that states this information, so I may use it as a reference? I'll keep looking, but hopefully I can find some answers here too. Thanks.
I am asking in reference to renting an apartment. My mother is my cosigner, but due to increased identity theft, she does not want to give her entire SSN on the application, and will only provide the last four digits. In addition to name, address, and date of birth, is this enough info for the owner to run a credit check on her? Or does she need to give her whole SSN?
1) Your (adult) child is brutally murdered, the murderer is found and executed.
2) Your (adult) child commits a brutal murder, and is executed.
For example, I wish I could roll my r's.
