Do you think annie defranco is the most underrated artist of her generation?
Or do you think if she was more popular it would kill it?

edit: apparently I'm really pretty stupid, it's "ani difranco" not "annie defranco" as I originally stated. I appologize.

Serious debate my friends and I are having:

Aliens drop from the sky and without having any idea as to what their history or intentions are beyond exploration and a desire born of curiosity to make contact with another sentient race, and any knowledge of their life or culture beyond same basic necessities as humanoid species (food, breathable atmosphere, hydration, shelter, etc.) the world governments opt to make an offer of some kind of resource, technology or other items as a gesture of good will.

What would you pick?


I say beef cattle. They're easy to feed and raise, and branch theory of evolution guarantees that they are unique to our planet but are pretty adaptable and have a plastic genome, and probably would fit the protein needs of another similar humanoid species. But then again I'm largely of the opinion that you can make peace with food, and really is there nothing more Earthling than a big ole hamburger and fries? Welcome to Earth, home of the Whopper, I say.

How woudl YOU react to this situation?

You're in a hostel, in a private room.  (it's one double bed, only one lock on the door.  You're on the fourth floor and in a way hidden corner room. The only way into the hostel after 10pm is a fob key.  The doors are actual lock and key, not swipe cards.  The elevators also use the fob keys.)

It's 4.45am.  You're in bed with your boyfriend, when someone uses what sounds like a key to get into your room.  The door opens wide and there's a young male (whiteish, blonde curly hair) .  He looks suprised to see people there, and quickly closes the door and runs away.

What would you do?  What would you expect your S/O to do?

Would you expect some sort of compensasion from the hotel?  (Ignore the spelling here, I'm fucking tired)

Would you be able to sleep the next night?


This happened to me last night.  New Zealand's been great, but damn.  the boyfriend did nothing, and I went down to talk to security (two large Maori guys).  They searched the area, and asked if there was someone else in the room with me.  I went back to bed because I was exhausted (I had been swimming all day).  The next morning I asked the front desk what the fuck that was, and was brushed off until they realized I was in a private room, not a dorm.  I was then told that this guys had checked in late (around 4am) without photo ID.  Only a weird police report that his passport had been stolen.  He took his fob key, and went from reception (floor 3) to the next floor (level 4).  This is where he started picking locks.  I guess secruity caught him and he was kicked out.  No police were called, and I was given an answer until I demanded one.  There was nothing really "done" for me.  I cannot fucking sleep right now for the life of me :(

So I'm a tiny bit drunk. Maybe tipsy. But I want to be more so. I've had this keg for 20 days. It says it's good for 30. It's a little flat, but other than that it's okay. Should I go for it and drink it anyway?

Chase Credit Cards

So, my boyfriend asked me to help him notify as many people as possible that Chase credit cards are going to hell in a hand basket. He got a notice in the mail and called Chase right away, and then wrote this:

    "To anyone that has a Chase credit card be sure to keep an eye out in the mail. I received a Change in Terms Notice today that says they are going to more than double my interest rate from 7.99% to 16.74%.

    They give you an OPT OUT option, but doing so will close your credit account with them. You will be responsible for paying off your balance at your current rate. There is one catch, even if you OPT OUT over the phone they still need to receive a letter from you by December 19, 2007 otherwise even your closed account will be charged the new rate of 16.74%.

    If you are already paying a higher interest rate with them it will not go down. This change only effects those with an interest rate lower than 16.74%.

    It amazes me how these credit card companies are screwing people. There are many people that are not going to even look at these notices and by the December 19, 2007 deadline will be paying a ridiculous APR with no hope of making it lower.

    I hope by me notifying people will help some of you out."



I was under the impression that 7% was incredibly low for an APR. What are the rates for some of your credit cards? Anyone helped by this info?

Is this flaky?

I met this guy at a conference where all the colleges in the area that has this club come together. The conference took place at a camp. Anyway, we talked until 4am, and the day we left, he left me a note saying, "Honestly NOT the last time I will see you. (phone, dorm address, myspace, facebook)"

He said to me, "You're going to call me, right?" And I replied, "Uh...yeah." He could tell that I was hesitating and said, "I'm not pressuring you or anything. I think it'll be cool if I could take you to a party or we could hang out." And I nodded. Re

The thing is, would it be flaky for me to not call? I never initiate, and although I do like this guy, I don't feel comfortable calling because I'm very sure that it will be awkward. I hate using the phone. Is it okay to not call? He did email me, then I emailed him back, and he emailed back, and I was the last to email. He hasn't emailed me back in like 2 weeks. I'm worried about keeping my word and how it'll be flaky. I don't mind if I don't see him again. 

Oh, and I'll see him again at the next conference in Februrary.

Argo Tea

I have just fallen in love with Argo Tea. Unfortunately, they only have cafes in the Chicago area and I do not live at all near there.

If you have ever been to one, which drinks do you like? If you haven't, would you want to, and which ones look interesting to you?

I've had a soy mate latte, a Mojitea, and a sample of a mint chocolate tea and a white and mint chocolate tea.

I would like to try the blueberry Tea Sparkle, the Hibiscus Steamer/Chiller, and the Tea Sangria.

Tea concoctions intrigue me.

I really want some hot chocolate..

I'm at work, so I can't leave to go get any.

or will it cause me to die a horrible and painful death because it is almost 2 years out of date?

My boyfriend is a grown man, and can decide for himself what he wants to do, but his anger over the current problem with his absent mother is getting to the point where it's starting to be destructive to our relationship. Today he wigged out on me and started a huge knock down drag out fight over me saying that the new paint job in his room was uneven (later even he admitted it needed another coat near the ceiling.)

His mother basically disowned him a year or so ago, but constantly sends him these creepy letters about how she still loves him always and forever and acts like he was the one that pushed her out of his life. He got another one of those letters today and it resulted in him blowing up over the paint.

He has since apologized but it's getting to the point where I've had it. He needs to talk to someone professionally because his anger over the situation is really starting to wear on our relationship. Being how he's incredibly worried about feeling like there's something "wrong" with him and no matter how I try to explain it, it seems to come out like I want him to go because of how it's affecting me or something, he just won't go.

So um, what's the best way to encourage an unwilling party to seek professional help?

I haven't responded yet. I don't use filters. That's stupid. Either I trust folks with my thoughts or I don't. I never thought anyone might want a filter because they want to read some things I post but not all.

Minors having babies

What do you think about minors having babies? Does anyone honestly think this is a good idea?

ETA: I'm referring to having and keeping the babies, instead of putting them up for adoption. Of course, it's not like we need yet another baby in the world anyway, so abortion is preferred.

It means bringing a baby to what is probably just a single, poorly prepared parent. They are far too immature. Even if mother's parents help, it's still going to be a half assed attempt by non-parents to raise the kid.

This is precisely the kind of case that abortions are suited for.

Blah.

Here's the situation:

You're quitting your job because other people above you are literally bipolar. One day you're doing a fantastic job, the next you're being chastised in front of the whole group because you're apparently an idiot. Mistakes that others have made have been blamed on you.

Overall, the job is just making you progressively more miserable.

Except, even though you logically know it's best to quit, you feel depressed. You've only been at this job for 6 months, and quitting after that short period feels like a failure.

How would you deal with these emotions? How would you get out of this rut and prove that you're worth more than this, and that you deserve a better job?

So we are doing a secret santa at work. The name I got is of someone who has only been working there a couple of weeks, so I don't know too much about him. What are some small random presents I could get him? He is 16/17. I don' t know too much about him so the gifts would have to be pretty vauge. Any ideas would be so helpful! Thanks!

What is the weirdest thing you have ever heard a kid say? Or heck, why not throw in weirdest thing from anyone?

Mine are: "I'm gonna kick you in the Vagelina Jolie!" and "Yum, BITCH!" ...Both from my friend's twelve-year old cousin.

L'Epicerie Ile St. Louis: Help, Master Googlers

I doubt anyone will be able to help me, but I will ask anyway because you guys have been known to be awesome and pull stuff out of thin air.

My family and I went to Paris this summer and we stayed on Ile St. Louis. My dad fell in love with L'Epicerie Ile St. Louis' jams. He bought a bunch of jars, but, of course, they have all been devoured by now.

I'd like to order him some for his birthday in January, but I am unable to find any evidence of the store whatsoever online. I have googled and googled and googled to no avail. :( Can you help me, or am I doomed to make an expensive intercontinental phone call and embarrass myself with my rusty French skills?

School and DVD players

1. If you went to college/university, when choosing your school how did you factor geography into your choice? i.e. Did you purposely choose a school as close to home as possible? As far away as possible? Out of state? In state? Why did you make that choice?

2. If financial issues were not involved, would that have affected your choice?

3. I live in the US. I am looking to buy a multi-region DVD player to hook up to my TV. What would you recommend?

What's an appropriate way to sign a holiday card for a coworker?

"Love" feels inappropriate for a professional setting... I like my coworkers very much, but I'm definitely not close enough with anyone where "Love, Jessica" would be right.

"Sincerely, Jessica" doesn't sound friendly enough.

Two of my coworkers are nuns, one is an older Chinese man (and the director of the library), and two are Jewish. I'm having a little trouble with this.

If my tooth is growing out sideways in the way back of my mouth, how much will it hurt to get yanked? :(

Why do gummies hurt my teeth?

I went back to my high school to visit for alumni day and my old art teacher gave me a painting I thought had been stolen from the art room a few years ago of The Birth of Venus. It's unfinished, but I was so happy to have it I hung it on my wall anyway. What was the last thing you found?

My old principal asked me if I'd like to do a gallery exhibit (the high school has an art gallery where local artists can have their own shows). I work in a few different mediums and would like a couple of pieces from each, but a lot of what i do now is digital. How would I display my digital work?

I have a fairly good...well, we're friends, but we're also a little more than that.

I want to knit him something for Christmas/some unspecified winter holiday, but I'm at a loss. Any suggestions?
