I was just wondering if anyone has ever owned pet mice. As of lately, I have become very interested in owning mice (not rats) and had a few questions:
1.) Have you ever owned pet mice?
2.) What type of personality do they have? (mean, nice, frequently bites, loves to be held, etc)
3.) Is there a particular species or sex you would recommend?
4.) How much maintenance are they?
If you have any other comments or opinions about owning mice, please tell me. I'm interested to hear! :P
what's a good job? if you're not very smart

I have a Wal-Mart receipt sitting on the desk here and I just happened to look down at it. I can remember pretty much everything I bought, but one thing has me stumped. It is a food item, and I paid $1 (marked down from $1.98). The name of the item on the receipt is:
MCC Y CMP CH
What the hell did I buy???
I bought 2 of them, whatever they were.
What band/artist/singer/whatever will you never get tired of?

What is a piece of advice that you always give but never seem to take?
Are brown haired girls the prettiest?
1. Today feels like one of those days where it's perfect to be lazy and watch movies all day. Got any suggestions of any particularly good movies I should check out? It feels like a horror/thriller/suspence movie day if that helps.
2. I'm putting together little gift baggies of home made goodies for about 20 people as thank you/christmas gifts. Whats a good amount of variety to include in these, like how many different things should I put in? I was thinking of making two types of homemade candy, a packet of home made hot chocolate powder and maybe a baked good. That should be enough right?
Yesterday, my extremely drunk second cousin told me that I was 'wayward'.
TQC, would you kindly tell me how I should take this comment? Please keep in mind that he kept talking about Pink being his favourite singer, letting his five year old smoke a joint and was quoting the Foo Fighters' DVD Skin And Bones the rest of the night.

If you were to name the absolute best gift you ever received as a child, what would it be?
So I've had a perpetual headache for oh, 3 days now. Usually that means a migraine, and I battle it with excedrin until it goes away, However, this one is particularly needy and located between my eyes rather than behind my left eyeball so I think it might be sinuses.
I took some Sudafed and it helped for a bit but the pain came back. So, TQC, how do you deal with sinus evil? Every time my fiance is around, I have him push on my sinuses and it feels ~fantastic~ but he had to go be a grad student today so I'm home alone. :(
If you have your own car, is it with manual or automatic transmission?
Did you ever pull a muscle in your neck/shoulder area?
how do you fix that? because my neck hurts like a motherfucker right now.
My left shoulder is forced up because my neck won't move to the right at all. I just took two painkillers.
Fuck, guys I think I messed up.
Me and my friend went for a job interview, told we were selected, that training starts on Thursday.
Friend got called in on Monday, was told my training starts on Thursday.
Waited until Wednesday afternoon, told that I would be called back, NEVER got called back.
Thursday, told I wasn't put in roster yet.
Sunday, told that I was NOT hired.
Of course I was pissed. I am so angry I can explode. A few minutes ago I just called the manager and told him that I was:
2. That I waited till late at night for the call, even bought required shoes for the job
3. That I DO NOT want his apology
4. Said goodbye and hung up
He still had the guts to say that only shortlisted ones would be called. But he did say we were selected and training WILL start on thursday. I waited a week in vain. It wasn't like a just a job thing. The thing is, he say we were selected, and he went back on that agreement. If it was just a oh we won't be calling because we do not need you I would not have been upset at all.
My question is:
1. Should I have made that call?
2. Would you have made that call?
It gave me a warped sense of justice and finality and I don't feel like exploding now, but I talked in a voice that was about to cry(really upset): do you think he would feel guilty? Ok he wouldn't feel guilty. Meh!
4. Console me please? :(
When you went to get prescription birth control did you go to your family doctor or the gynecologist? What happened at the appointment?

1. If I drop some Bailey's into a regular cup of black coffee (I don't have cream or milk anywhere), will that be gross? Do I need to go all-out to enjoy some Bailey's in my coffee on this cold afternoon with nothing to do?
2. I'm a skinny guy. I need to wear dress shirts (collared, button-up) but I really hate how a lot of the ones I try on billow out in the back because of all the fabric (for someone my height, but much heavier). I know I've seen skinny guys wearing dress shirts that fit - does that cut have a name? And does anyone know where I can find them?
3. And finally, from a discussion I was in last night at the bar - using the term "Oriental" to describe an Asian person. Is it politically incorrect, or not?

something you have do in the past?
on another note, what sort of gifts do you buy friends?
I'm assuming (despite the dangers inherent therein) that you are all familiar with the "Red Bull gives you wings" commercials, and the disclaimer that follows them. My question is this: Is there actually someone dumb enough to believe that drinking Red Bull will make him or her grow little angel wings and float away? I find it hard to believe that there would be, but why else would they have the disclaimer? Maybe it's like those stickers that you find on microwaves or washing machines that stipulate that one should not put children or animals inside. I'm just wondering if there was an incident (like the woman who spilt McDonald's coffee and then sued them because she didn't know it was hot)that involved a lawsuit because Red Bull didn't live up its commercials. I posted this in my lj and no one gave a satisfactory response. I realize that this is an utterly pointless question, but I'm a pretty pointless person. :)
1. The instructions to my new digital camcorder say to let the battery charge for 8 hours. It's been like three hours, and the green light is on, indicating that it is fully charged. Should I use it nau, or let it charge for five moar owers??
2. Should I bake some holiday cookies? y/n
You've been on a few dates with someone. You know the next time they call, they're going to ask you for coffee and tell you they don't want to go out anymore. Do you go out for the coffee, or do you just end it over the phone? Why?
Edit: Wow, I'm pleasantly surprised by all the optimism. Okay, so if YOU were the prospective dumper in this scenario, how would you do it? Over the phone, or invite them out and do it in person?
Is there something you want to get off your chest? In general? About TQC?

So I got a webcam last night, it's a Phillips, and everything installed well and my compy recognizes it. Problem is, the compy keeps crashing randomly when I've been using the cam today, and it didn't last night. The Blue Screen of Death keeps popping up with no real explanation as to why. Any help here? thanks in advance.

You have the oppurtunity to study abroad for about a month next June/July. Would you rather go to Greece (Athens and some of the islands), Australia(Melbourne and the outback) or South Africa (Cape Town and a wild animal reserve)? All of the classes that you'll be taking will be relatively similar, involving the culture of the country you're in.
Where would you go?

I have a job "audition" tomorrow night. Part of the audition is teaching a five minute, non-academic lesson to everyone in the room.

1) I'm trying to remember a movie I once saw on TV. I think it had John Cusack and Sandra Bullock, but it's been a while, so I'm not sure. The guy was going to get married, and then for some reason he went somewhere, and he met a woman on a train (I think). She was really carefree, and he fell in love with her. At the end of the movie, he was going to break up with his fiance (on the day of his wedding of course), but he ended up staying with her instead. The song "Love the one you're with" definitely played in it. Do you know the name of this movie?
2) What are your favorite Christmas movies?

restaurant MENU for our local Chinese place lists, "Three Ingredients. Shrimp, scallops, and sea legs, delicately blended and sauteed."

Socialized/nationalized health care: Yea or Nay? I say nay.
The cat my boyfriend is watching until we find a home for it, has suddenly stopped using the litter box. Well, she still urinates in it, but that's it.
When she was with my roommates and I, one of the roomies yelled at her when she kicked a clump of feces out of the box by accident, and it scared her so bad she hid for hours. I personally think this is part of it. We moved her that week to my boyfriend's house, and she seemed to be adjusting well to the new home and the cat and dog my boyfriend already has. At the begining of this week, my boyfriend went on a week long business trip, and ever since he left, Mandy (the kitty) has stopped using the box correctly. She goes either in the shower, on the kitchen floor, or on a rug in the laundry room.
Does anyone have any tips for helping Mandy learn to use the box right again? Thanks

Santa Claus has not taken a vacation in 100 years. He asks you where to go and what to do. What do you tell him?
My dad is impossible to shop for. Last year we bought him a portable DVD player because he travels for work all the time and he loved it yet rarely used it. One year i got him movies and he ended up leaving them at my house for me to have. He's the type of person that always says "oh no I don't need anything, what can I get for you?" So I'm thinking of something maybe simple yet useful and creative.
people who have facebook:
1. which of your groups has the most people? how many?

2. smallest - "The Brian Jonestown Massacre - Rock!" with 5 people

4. either "I Hate Doing Things That I Hate Doing" or "Legalize Bagels"
My professor said she'd give extra credit to anyone who could get three episodes of "Gilad Bodies in Motion" for her. I could really use the extra credit, but I can't find this stupid workout program anywhere. On Youtube, there are a few really horribly recorded bits, and one that is actually usable. So, my question is...do you know where I could download Gilad episodes? Or, do you have some that you could email to me? She does NOT want the DVDs that you can buy because she prefers the 30 minute format of the tv program. EDITED TO ADD: I don't have a VCR and there is no time to order crap from eBay 'cause the semester is over in three days and I need it before then.
Also, I have to write a paper about my BEST DAY EVER (that sounds like I'm in fifth grade, but it will be seven pages in French, haha). If you were writing about your best day ever, what would you write about?
