Okay. This might be the stupidest thing ever, but I'd rather be laughed at then get it right then do something wrong.

I bought a (WD My Book Essential Edition) external hard drive and I'm hooking it up to my mac. the mac recognizes it and everything, and it's installed correctly...

Do I just click and drag over all the files I want, or is it more complicated than that? I feel like it has to be more complicated. The instruction manual writers apparently think they can just tell you how to install it then any idiot would know where to go from there. But see, me and electronics don't get along well and it's made me a bit wary of doing something unless it's already proved to be successful.

I has tomorrow off, and I'd like to go shopping as I have nothing else to do. (I may hate working retail but that 2nd job income is oh so very very nice)

What should I go shopping for?

Any particular shops I should visit?

Should I turn LJhook back on, or should I stick with my regular default?

so, i was leaving one of our salesmen a message, at the end of the message i said 'go ahead and return my phone call, thanks.. bye'.. well two of my co-workers who were standing around and overheard me leaving the message both busted out laughing.. snickering about 'go ahead and return my phone call'.. i don't see the humor in this, did i miss something? i mean.. was that wrong to say or? lol.

whenever you leave a voice mail, do you tend to listen to it before hanging up or do you hang up as soon as you're doing leaving the message?

is there a couple that you know that is SOOOO annoying to be around? or are you and your SO that couple?

Are you a dick driver?

This morning, my neighbor and I left at the same time. He zipped out around me, went about 40 MPH though the yellow light, made a U-turn about 1/2 a block later, then made a right - all because he just couldn't wait the 30 seconds for the left hand turn lane light to go green.

When you see someone like that, do you ever wish that they'd do something stupid in front of the cop that needs to meet his ticket quota?

one of my coworkers has been having a particularly bad month, due to dealing with a lot of crappy stuff just at work. we're all dealing with similar issues in our office, but he's been dealing with it the most. i want to get him something just to cheer him up and sort lift his spirits.

i was thinking of getting him either a decent bottle of scotch or an equally nice bottle of wine.

TQC, make a decision for me!

Should I go to watch Rocky Horror Picture Show tonight? It would mean that I have to go alone. But then again, it's probably once every five years in the movies around here and never played live. I know there will be audience participation and I'd like to see it.

So, when should I call?

Speaking of interviews... I had a job interview that went pretty damn well on monday. One of those ones where they tell me what I'll be doing and ask what I want to be paid, not as many "Why should we hire you" questions. It seemed pretty much a done deal, but the guy needed to figure out how much they can pay me, what kind of hours they wanted me to work, etc.

He asked me to call him back yesterday at 3 if I hadn't heard from him. I did, and he was out of the office. I called back this morning and he was with a customer, and she took a message.

Um... when should I try calling again? I was really left with the impression that the job is pretty much gonna be mine, but now I'm not so sure.

Is it just me, or is job hunting a lot like dating?

I'm trying to download some books from Project Gutenberg and print them out. To save printing costs, I'm reformatting them in Word to condense them into as few pages as possible. With the ones in HTML it's fairly easy to shrink the font and margins and put the text in columns. However, for the ones that are only available in plain text, there are annoying line breaks that screw it up. I know there must be some way to get rid of these without going through each individually, but all my attempts with find and replace, such as replacing paragraph marks with a space or whatever completely destroys ALL the paragraphing, which isn't what I want. Can any of you explain a good way to do this?

Today at work my co-workers were somewhat chatty, and a girl whose name I don't remember came up, so I said "she's fine". The youngest co-worker said, "you say fine, but noone says that anymore". Then the Indian co-worker spoke up and asked what he meant, and my co-worker clarified that fine is like saying she's hot, but noone uses it anymore. The Indian co-worker said "so fine is like a level below hot", and then I said disagreed. I said that fine is on par or higher level than hot - like she's golden or sterling - because a precious metal's purity is measured by its fineness.

Is fine above, on par with, or below hot?

Backstory: In June, my freshmen year roommate/good friend and I moved into an apartment together in June. we signed a one year lease. Our apartment is awesome (late 1800's, 16 ft. ceilings, tons of room, right near the subway) , and really quite a steal for what we're paying. Oh, and the apartment is under my name.

Problem: I can't live with her. Or anyone, I don't know. She goes to bed at the most ungodly hours (6-7 am), has never touched a dirty dish, doesn't take out the trash, always has sketchy lame people crashing on our couch, never pays the rent on time, yadda yadda yadda. Basically, she sucks as a roommate and I want to live alone*.

1.) How dick would it be to kick her out or make up something like, "the landlord kicked us out"?

2.) How negatively would kicking her out affect our friendship on a scale from 1 to 10?

3.) Is there any way I can remedy this situation without kicking her out?

*When we moved in together, we kept similar hours and had a similar lifestyle.

Like cry. I watch a lot of tv, and my shows are really important to me! or kill someone.. that too.

Since they have gone on strike, and seasons will ending sooner, which one will you be the saddest about ending.. 5-6 months early?
House, or Grey's. Gossip girl, partly.. but not so much cause there is only 13 episodes this season.. so, i wouldn't be missing that much.

 EDIT: If you are not a gossip girl fan.. what is your favorite show? and who do you think the hottest actor/ress in it is?

**Sorry guys.. I didn't realize they had gone on strike**
Feet Pyramid

If you got the chance to interview Charles Manson, would you? What would you ask him?

I would give anything to talk to him and pick his brain, but by the time I'm a famous, world-renowned psychologist, he'll probably be dead. He just seems so interesting. And no, I don't agree with his ideas.

When you had sex for the first time, did you lose your virginity to someone "experienced" or to someone who was also a virgin?

Was it awkward?

If you're still a virgin, would you perfer to lose it to someone "experienced" or someone who is also a virgin?

1. What kind of OCD things do you do?

When I go to the toilet, I would check the taps more than 4 times to make sure it's not leaking, then exit. Sometimes I would switch on the lights again just to go back to check. And when I leave the house, I would check whether the lock is locked 4-6 times :(

here's another one of those annoying wedding etiquette questions:

My sister and I have been going to a camp for about 7ish years. There is a couple who met each other at this camp and this winter, they are getting married. They have invited me to their wedding, but not my sister. I can't think of any reasonable explanation why not. Would it be bad etiquette to bring my sister with me? Would you feel weird about going to a wedding you were not invited to?

So let's say we suddenly live in a totalitarian dictatorship where everyone has to name their children like celebrities do. Disobedience is punishable by death. Variant spellings are encouraged.

For the following questions you can give your answer for a son, a daughter, or both. Also feel free to explain why you picked the name you did.

  1. If you had to name your kid after a fruit, a la Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter Apple, which would you pick?

  2. If you had to name your kid after a career, a la Christie Brinkley's daughter Sailor, which would you pick? A combination is acceptable, a la Jason Lee's kid Pilot Inspektor.

  3. If you had to name your kid after the place s/he was conceived, a la Posh Spice's kid Brooklyn, what would you pick? (You may travel anywhere to do the deed, and be as specific or vague as you like.)

  4. If you had to name your kid an uncommon flower name, which would you pick? Inspired by Ginger Spice's daughter Bluebell.

  5. If you had to name your kid after a kind of fabric, a la Alice Cooper's kid Calico or Toni Braxton's son Denim, what would you pick?

  6. If you had to name your kid a really random combination of letters, a la Frank Zappa's poor kid Dweezil, what would you pick?

  7. What about a really random combination of words, a la Frank Zappa's other poor children, Moon Unit and Diva Muffin?

  8. If you had to name your kid after an animal, like Erykah Badu's daughter Puma, which would you pick?

  9. If you had to name your kid after a musical instrument, a la Rachel Griffith's kid Banjo, which would you pick?

  10. If you had to name your kid after a school subject, a la Shannyn Sossamon's kid Audio Science, which would you pick? Imaginary or obscure subjects are A-OK.

And I really wanted you to do something with "Moxie Crimefighter," but it basically defies any categorization besides "badass," so I couldn't see how to fit it in. Oh, okay, so bonus question: How about if you had to name your kid something totally badass?

I have a friend who once knew some kids who got to pick their own middle names when they were five. The boy picked BONZAI!!!. True story.

Has anyone successfully installed any of the adobe cs3 trial versions?

I had a friend download Premiere and AfterEffects trials for me (at .8 and 1.2 gig they were too large for my net connection to handle), but now I can't install them. They've got a .exe.dlm extension that my computer doesn't recognise, and can't find anywhere. Any ideas on how to make this work?

Did your parents teach you that "penis" and "vagina" were bad words?

Would you ever teach your children that? If so, WHY?

Pretend you work in a daycare type situation, and a 9 year old boy asks you if "penis" is a bad word. What do you tell him?

EDIT: I told the boy "It's not a bad word, but you shouldn't talk about it in school" or something very similar. His mother yelled at me, and said she was going to call my supervisor. I was just wondering if I had really said something terribly wrong. From now on I'm sticking with "ask your parents" for everything.

Plz Tell Me I'm Not The Only One That's Done This!!

Have you ever thought it was one day, and the found out that it's not by doing something embarrassing?

Like, about 20 minutes ago I was getting all upset because I thought my friend had forgotten to pick me up for work and when I called to warn them that I might be late my manager is all "Are you even supposed to work today?" and I was all "It's Thursday... isn't it?" and he's all. "No, it's Tues-- No, it's Wednesday... It's only Wednesday." And I apologized and he chuckled, told me it happens and said "see you TOMORROW... hee hee." And I was all. 'Where's my corner, I needs to curl up in my corner and like, ya know, hide... or something.'

Has that ever happened to anyone?

Does that mean I'm sick?

What is your Thermostat set too?

Would a nap make me feel better?
either way I think I'm going to take one LOL

Last tuesday as I was leaving my two supervisors were ranting about something,about how they shouldn't have to put up with something, but I'm hard of hearing and I don't think they realized I was standing there, and they were talking quietly to begin with. Does it make me paranoid if I think they might have been talking about me? Because I was annoyed earlier that day because in the last 10 days I've worked 8 of them have been on the busiest, most stressful aisle because the other girl is l-a-z-y with absolutely no self-motivation to do work other than standing around and doing stuff as slowly as possible so that she doesn't have to do the stuff she doesn't like, and I kinda complained about it to my supervisor because it's not fair. They know how stressed that register makes me, and add to it that she won't turn her freaking light on... it's just UGH!. *sorry it's so long. I just had to get that off my chest*

*hands out hot apple cider to anyone that wants one*

1. How on earth do I add notes to my iPod video? I googled it and I didn't understand it. I enabled notes in iTunes and now I have no idea what to do.

2. I want to be fluent in Spanish. What's the best way for me to learn: tutor, tapes or books? If it's the latter two can you recommend any good free downloads or books?

3. What type of mobile phone do you have?

1. I think I stole this icon from someone. Was it you? Do you mind if I use it until I find a new default icon?

2. What is the purpose of answering services? Why do they exist? Like at my apartment's office, they have an answering service that pretty much functions as an answering machine, except with an attitude, and they never actually give anyone my message. WTF?

3. Is it just me, or does Dean Koontz use a lot of adjectives and kind of over-describe things in general? What's the word for that?

Do you think it's trashy to buy an engagement/wedding ring from a department store?

What about buying a secondhand/discount wedding gown?

Ladies, if another woman wore white in some form to your wedding, would you be pissed?

I was using my SO's computer while he was at class the other day and went to go to a site I had bookmarked earlier, and I saw he had several sites for engagement rings bookmarked. Is he gonna pop the question TQC?
