is anyone else somewhat less than full of christmas cheer?

I feel like a giant downer but I'm not feeling christmas at all this year.

What (aside from putting up decorations and listening to christmas music) generally makes it feel more christmas-y to you? (i.e. does it not feel like christmas until you watch all the christmas specials or specific christmas movies)

I'm trying to make a christmas mix cd for a stocking stuffer for my mom. Most christmas music she has is instrumental. Any suggestions for christmas songs/ artists with christmas songs I should look up that a 60 yr old woman would enjoy but may not have heard yet?

Christmas cookie questions

Okay so I have this sort-of recipe for cheap, easy cookies that requires only Duncan Heinz cake mix, and instead of water substituting fruit juice. For example, lemon cake mix with lemon juice, etc. Then, you're supposed to refrigerate the batter for a while, then bake it like an ordinary cookie. Does this seem like it's just going to create little circular cookie-wannabes with a too-soft cakey texture? Srsly I am not a huge baker, I only do this once a year.

How should I package these cookies for gift giving, also inexpensively? Something tells me that while my friends and family understand my monetary situation, quart-size freezer bags are just trashy.

What are your favorite Christmas cookies?
I usually make sugar cookies, pumpkin chocolate chip, peanut butter, and aztec double chocolate chips (with cinnamon and cayenne) when I have more time and cash.

Why do certain websites I visit often or frequently randomly stop loading for me?

About a year ago, gamespot.com and all its sister sites wouldn't load for about three days. I'd get a "DNS Error - Server cannot be found" error and "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error. Now it's doing it again, only this time for nin.com. Everyone else I know can load the site, except for me!

Do you think it's my internet provider randomly censoring certain sites? I'm gonna have to rail on their asses if that's the case.

Three unrelated questions...

2. What is your biggest pet peeve while driving? Mine are: people driving with no brake lights in rush hour traffic, people riding your ass during rush hour traffic, and people who try and try and try to pass you and when they finally DO they go slow.

3. Have you ever heard of a job having a waiting list? Specifically for a proofreader's job with a large financial corporation? One of my coworkers claims that her old temp job had a "waiting list." But I think she's full of shit.

Question of Etiquette

For those that receive Christmas/Holiday bonuses at work, do you write a letter or card of thanks after receiving them? Is it proper to do so?

Peter Post (etiquette professional) seems to indicate that when receiving a bonus or gift from a corporation, no card of thanks is needed. But does that still apply to gifts/bonuses received from a CEO directly? Does the size of the bonus or gift matter?

i have to admit that the first time i heard the song "hey there delilah" on the radio it caught my ear
it was a catchy, underproduced ballad floating on a sea of overproduced crap, such as the enunciation-eschewing "beautiful girls" or britney's 'comeback' song (which managed to repeat the word 'gimme' 84 times over its four minute, eleven second length (twenty times per minute, or once every three seconds)

however as it climbed to the top of the charts it quickly began to grate
as i became famliar with the lyrics it started to sound more and more like a clingy, desperate post-collegiate virgin pining for a woman who had promised to wait for him but had long since moved on to drunken frat gang bangs, and i started switching the station when it would play

until i found out the story behind it -- a story that revealed it to be the most creepy stalker song since the police's 'i'll be watching you' (relevant portion of the wikipedia article copied, mostly verbatim, for the anchorphobic):

The song, "Hey There Delilah" was inspired by Delilah DiCrescenzo, a Columbia University graduate and steeplechase runner training for the 2008 Olympic trials.

There was never a relationship between Tom Higgenson and DiCrescenzo, but Tom was inspired to write a song about her soon after they were introduced by a mutual friend:
"There was never anything between us. It was kind of funny — kind of sad, actually. The story of my life... I thought she was the most beautiful girl I had ever seen. I told her, 'I have a song about you already.' Obviously, there was no song. But I thought it was smooth..."

It took over a year for Tom to write the song. However, the real life Delilah, who wasn't interested in Tom because she was already in a relationship, was not sure how to deal with the pressure of having a song written about her:
"It was so beautifully written. There was pressure to live up to this ideal. I didn't know how to be polite but, you know, ditch him."

Delilah also says of the song,
"When I'm at the gym, it's playing; when I'm at the pool, it's playing. Part of me wants to scream at the top of my lungs that it's about me. Another part of me wants to cower and say it's not."

ever since learning that, the song has taken on a breath of fresh air and after having burnt itself off the top spot of the pop charts, i no longer switch stations when it comes on
the story is too great

tl;dr: so tqc, what's your favorite stalker song, and why?
and, if you were in delilah's shoes, would you be flattered or creeped out?

I just had a stress/panic attack in the middle of my Functional Keyboard final (needless to say, I failed).

What's wrong with me? WHO THE FUCK DOES THAT?

The two teachers grading me just sat there watching me (I assume the were watching me...they weren't moving around) while I sat there gasping in an attempt to breath and almost passed out. They didn't ask if I was alright, what was wrong, etc.

Is this normal for college profs (I would have said something if I had been them)? What would you have done?

I have a second interview for a job (Planned Parenthood, woooooo!) potentially scheduled for 10:00am next Monday. For my first interview (about a week and a half ago), I told my current job that I had a doctor's appointment, and that's why I had to leave early. My current job is a temp job that I have recently been informed will most definitely be ending before the year is out.

So, do I tell them the truth this time, that I have a job interview? Or do I make up some other excuse for why I need to come in 4 hours late?

Have you ever been turned down when you asked for a reference or a letter of recommendation? Or had any other negative or odd experiences pertaining to that?

I'm currently waiting very impatiently for my old boss to respond to my e-mail (six days ago) asking very nicely and professionally for a letter of recommendation, and I'm anxious that he's just not responding to me in hopes that I'll go away rather than saying no. He's agreed to be a reference in the past, just not to actually write anything for me. I should call him to check on it, but he hasn't, as far as I can tell, ever actually answered his work phone.

edit: I'm not expecting an actual letter of recommendation from him in six days. I'm waiting for him to say yes or no. If he's willing to give me one, I have to send him a form for the letter, so getting a yes or no is a vital first step.

So I was being considered for an internship with MTV Networks, and after I went through one round of (informal) interviewing, they want me to contact the specific department and set up an interview with them. But the thing is I came to the realization that I actually have no interest in working for that department. But I also don't have a lot of other internship options.

So do I email back the first lady and ask her if she can have me considered for any other departments instead? Or should I politely tell them that another opportunity came up for me so I won't be following through with them? Or do I suck it up and interview anyway so as not to burn my bridges?

How many of you are over the top stressed? or even just plain stressed?
Why is that?

When you sing a song out loud to  the radio or what-have you, if there is a lyric like "I love you boy/girl" Do you change it to fit your sex? (ie if the lyric was "i love you girl" and you were a girl, would you say "i love you boy" or would you keep it as is to keep the flow of the song?)

Are you sick right now?

Can you make me laugh really really hard? Points for whoever can.

1. I work in a daycare, and today the kids had to make these reindeer out of construction paper and name them and hang them on the wall. My boss showed them an example (hers was named Dixon, I believe) and then let the kids loose. They all made fairly normal-looking ones (they had a template, but how they decorated it was up to them) except one kid who made "My dad when he comes home from work" reindeer - basically a reindeer all pale with bags under its eyes. Is this kid made of win? Is he going to grow up to be a serial killer?

2. Said kids also had to write what they wanted for Christmas on a paper stocking, and we hung them by the door. Every single wish list says "Wii", with the exception of one, which says two things: peace on earth and presents. Do you think kids are honestly that kindhearted, or she just saw it on TV or something?

3. What is the evilest thing you have ever done to one of your Sims? Do you get sadistic pleasure out of killing/maiming/torturing your pixel people?

Q1. Does your cat follow you into the bathroom?
What does she do in there? Does she stare up at you doing your business or does she meow incessantly to be let out?

My cat follows me into the bathroom to convince me to feed her. She's pretty smart because it works.

Q2. What is your sleeping set-up?

I sleep on a twin bed, with a super soft blue duvet with flowers on it, and two pillows, once matches the duvet, and the other is a random pink. I also sleep with a mismatching fleece around my feets.

Q3. We're getting a puppy as a surprise for my younger siblings, on Christmas! Any advice to how we could surprise them? Any advice for new puppy owners? i googled the breed but I'm interested in first hand experience. She's a Shih Tzu if that makes any difference.


Thank you!

What do you think of sharing charges at restaurants?

On the one hand, I think it's tacky. If  people want to share one (usually) oversized entree, let 'em do it.

On the other hand,  the waitstaff do have to set out an additional plate... but does that justify a $3.00 (or higher) charge on the total bill?

Do you think it's okay to spank kids? Obviously it's not okay to really hurt them, but do you think it's permissible to smack them on the butt a few times? Or does this send the message that might makes right and physical violence is acceptable?

a: Airbrushing and edited pictures of celebs, models, and the like.
b: People of different colors and origins dying their hair and wearing colored contacts to look "more white"?

haitqc.

so my friend from work is having a not-really-but-kind-of baby shower. she isn't registered because she says she's well off enough that she doesn't need anything. so she's just gonna have a get together with friends and family to have coffee and cake and talk baby, i guess.

so, since she has no need for clothes or cribs or whatever, i thought i'd get her the set of Baby Be Of Use Books:



i showed this to my sister, though, and she's like, "whut? that's tacky."

so what do you think, tqc?
