Do any of you remember the show elove?????????? Where can I find episodes?? It was pretty much the most entertaining show ever and I can't believe no one else is familiar with it.

ETA: one episode involved a guy who got a tattoo of his internet gf's name before even meeting her.

Narcolepsy

Partially inspired by an earlier question.

Has anyone ever been tested for/diagnosed with narcolepsy or strongly suspect that they have it?
(I do. I'm afraid to go and test for it, though.)

Who here has taken the GRE? Computer-based or paper-based? How'd you score?

Have you ever had a professor tell you exactly how many minutes you have to spend responding to an essay question for a final?

I've never encountered this before, and I've taken exams at three different universities. Mostly it's just a tell me what you know kind of question- they never say write for x amount of time. But one professor this semester has decreed that we should spend 50 minutes answering one question. So is it just odd that I've never encountered a professor like this or is this woman off her rocker?

Also, how big of a jerk will I look like if I only spend 50 minutes on the entire exam. Beause she gave us the questions and there's no way in hell anyone can write for that long about it.

1. What's the strangest/weirdest/odd/off-the-wall greeting card you've ever received?

Our office just got a Christmas card from a designer/illustrator dude we're working with. The front has a sketch of a black lab with a raccoon hanging from one of its ears and another raccoon sledding down the dog's nose. The back of the card has a sketch of the guy's mom with a "memorial" message to her because she died 20 years ago on Christmas.

I know when I think of Christmas, I think of black labs with sledding raccoons down their noses.

Edit:

Here's a crappy cell phone pic of the front of the card:

This is like Sophie's choice...

For Christmas I got my mom a gorgeous knit jacket, snazzy jeans, and a fancy scarf- a very My Mom Outfit that I knew she'd never actually buy for herself. I also ordered a bunch of silly gifts for my family, including a "Knit Your Own Sheep Kit" for mom:
http://www.hawkin.com/rkmain.asp?PAGEID=20670&STK_PROD_CODE=09947

It arrived today and is even more awesome in person (I'm also running on 2 hours of sleep and lots of coffee, so it doesn't take much to impress me), so: Do I keep it for myself? Or be generous and give it to mom? Or, perhaps knit the sheep myself and give one to her? Or, buy one for myself and send this one to mom?

There is this generic computer desktop background picture, it has a moose and blue sky and such. Do you know what i am talking about? Do you have that image? Could you send it to me?

I had it on my work computer, and then i was doing some research and accidentally hit "set as background" instead of "save picture" on something and now i can't find the original background on the computer and my google searches have been pretty fruitless because i don't think the keywords of the image have anything to do with the moose. any help appreciated. thanks!

update

Well, I just reported my store for mold to the OSHA. I'm feeling pangs of guilt. Did I do the right thing? Should I have waited until after xmas?? It's hard not to feel like if this was the "right thing" to do someone else would have done it a long time ago. I've made the mistake of asking advice in other public forums where people are telling me I'm a jerk for screwing people out of a job during the holiday season.

I'm worried they're right.

ETA: the mold is toxic (black), and the district manager has been alerted to it but is denying the severity of the problem. last week my coworker and i went to the basement (Where the mold is) for under 10 minutes, and i emerged feeling extremely nauseas and dizzy and she had red itchy patches all over her skin.

I suck at essays

Hey guys, I was wondering if you could help me with citing something for an essay. Yes, I've googled, but whenever I find an MLA website I get way too overwhelmed with the dang rules and can never find what I'm looking for. I'm not asking you to go to any extremes to google or whatever but if you know this off the top of your head and can help me that would be very nice of you.

I'm wondering how to cite introductions to books...for example, I'm doing an essay on Oedipus and Aristotle's Poetics, there is a nice Aristotle quote in the introduction of the book with the page number as VII. So I'm just wondering if I would still quote it as (Sophocles VII) or something different like maybe (Introduction VII) or what have you.

Thanks again! I always appreciate your help when I do essays because I SUCK.

coffee maker

Does any one have this coffee maker?

I'm looking for a coffee maker that brews one cup at a time
and I found this on Amazon --
It is pretty cheap, which causes me to be concerned about how well it works.

Should I spend the $12.00 and take the risk? 

EDIT:  I am simply looking for something to make myself a cup of coffee every morning so I do not have to spend so much damn money on Dunkin Donuts every day.  I'm not really a coffee nut and I add a ton of cream and sugar, so it doesn't have to brew the best tasting coffee on earth.

Four totally unrelated questions

1. Am I the only smoker who isn't annoyed with laws enacted that say I have to smoke outside? Edited: I should point out that while I don't necessarily agree that there should be laws like this, and that I believe it should be up to the owner of the establishment to decide, it doesn't bother me that in some places, I may have to go outside to smoke. I should have worded that a bit differently. ^.^
I first dealt with this when I visited a friend in Los Angeles. I almost took my pack of cigarettes out in a club before he reminded me we had to smoke outside. The laws in Tennessee regarding this were just passed and are pretty relaxed compared to other places. You must smoke outside unless the establishment is 21+. I don't smoke in my house, I don't smoke in other people's homes, the only time I smoke inside at all is in a 21+ pub because it is very well ventilated. The only time it's annoying is when it's cold out, as my boyfriend and I both end up with freezing hands. It gives me an excuse to knit these.


2. Do you own any guns? What kind? What do you use them for?
I have four - a Walther P22, a Walther SP22 that I got because it looks like a blaster, a Taurus Judge, and a Savage Arms long rifle. The .22s are pretty much exclusively range weapons since they're cheap to shoot, the Taurus I have just because, and the long rifle is for both target and deer hunting. (Anti-hunting people don't even start. I'm not a sport hunter and I'm responsible.)

3. Is there anything that you hate touching because it makes your skin crawl?
I can't stand popsicle sticks and wooden spoons. Pleh!

4. If you use a loofah in the bath, what color is it?
Mine is light pink. A little more lavender than baby pink.

Misinformation

Spawned from a f-post about the WGA:

Is there one topic that you think people are so sorely misinformed about that you'd like to sit each person with the wrong idea down and explain to them why it is their heads are up their bottoms?

ETA: I'm not talking about spiritual issues or matters of opinion. I'm talking hard evidence, like, for example, the fact that the AMPTP walked out of negotiations, not the WGA like the person in question was asserting. Another example would be someone insisting that all pit bulls are evil. Sheesh.

I took my car in in November to have my transmission looked at. It wouldn't go in to third gear sometimes. I got a call back from them saying they couldn't get my car to do what I said it was doing. I went down there and drove it with a tech. It did it when I went around the block ONCE. They dismissed it and said it was nothing. I argued but they won. Fast forward to last week. I almost got in a wreck because my car is doing it a lot more now. As in, almost every time I shift. I took it in yesterday. I get a call back today saying they can't get it to do it. Are you fucking kidding me? I either have to double clutch or skip third gear completely to avoid doing it. Not to mention the fact that they called me at 4pm. The techs leave at 5. I couldn't even be down there until 4:45. I need my car by this weekend.

Taking it to another dealership is not an option, as this one is the only Honda dealership. Taking it to a regular mechanic isn't an option either. Its warranty work. I'd have to pay that person. Something needs to happen SOON. If I can get them to declare it warranty work I can push for a rental car for the weekend, which I really need. What should I do TQC? =(

Nevermind. I just filed a complaint with Honda. They said they're sending a rep to figure things out.

What majors/professions does the humanitarian field accept the most?

I was planning on becoming a doctor, but the only reason why was because I want to travel around the world in underdeveloped countries to help people, and I hear that they accept doctors the most. I want this as a career, not just for a limited time. I don't care about the pay as long as I'm stable and have all the necessities in life. What I do care about is being able to personally interact with the impoverished people, and getting to know them along with helping them. My dream job would be like a forever Peace Corps.  

I've changed my mind about becoming a doctor. I'm definitely majoring in psychology (for fun, not doing anything related to psych), but will double major in something else (this will be my true profession). What majors/professions would allow my dream to come true? Getting accepted into the humanitarian field is tough, I hear, but what will give me the edge?

Thank you for reading.

So, I bite my fingernails like crazy, but I'm trying to give it up. So far it's been 3 weeks (yay me!)

But.... in order to do this I had to paint my nails... and even when I use a bottom coat and a top coat (or even all clear polish), my nails are still turning a little yellowish. I know that if I take all polish off, either I'll start biting on my own, or one of them will break and I'll start biting. (weird triggers)

Does anyone have any tips for quick fixes to this yellowish hue? It's really gross, but I can't afford to leave my nails unpainted. :(

Ok, TQC, I have some money/traveling questions for you.

I might have the chance to go to Italy in the spring, for 8 days. For air and hotel, is $2100 a good price?

For those who have been to Italy, how awesome was it? I'm not sure which cities we'll be visiting yet, but I'd love to hear any stories or anything that you have.

If I need to learn Italian in like, 3 months, what's my best bet? My husband wants to buy me Rosetta Stone software, but it's really expensive.

EDIT: I just got an email back from the guy organizing it, and this is what he said: The price includes the flights, hotel costs, two meals a day, and the tour costs.

Do girls ever deserve to be raped?




If so, what do they do to deserve it? Wearing short skirts? Drinking alcohol? Etc?


EDIT: I don't believe women ever deserve to be raped but many people on the internets seem to love to blame victims. I was wondering how common it is.

Is it just me, or is this really anal.

I woke up at 12pm today with such a bad hangover, so I went to the store for some asprin. There where like five people in the cue, so I asked very politley "excuse me, could I cut in to the front". The people are all like, um no. so I explained, my head was really sore and my 4 year old was at home looking after my 3 year old, and I was parked in a handicapped space, and they're still like "no, the cue starts back there". So much for the christmas spirt, I think that's just being anal, or is it just me? When my boyfriend eventualy came to, he thought it was really rude too.

Holiday shopping!

Have you finished Christmas shopping if you celebrate Christmas?

If so, have you finished all your wrapping?

I'm almost done and I started in early November. I have to start early because I'm a wrapping gift snob. I have to have pretty paper, multiple bows with curling ribbon and each gift has to be wrapped differently. I have a huge storage box just full of bows, in fact. It borders on OCD.

What's your wrapping style? Pretty and perfect? Or do you use bags and not be bothered with wrapping?

e-cards

Do you send e-Christmas cards or do you send them through the mail?
Do you think that it is perfectly acceptable to send e-cards to people who always send you a hard-copy Christmas card?
Do you think people do it to save the money on postage?

Myself, I hate getting Christmas cards electronically. I like to hang mine up. I like to display them proudly like trophies!
At the very least, relatives should send real cards or none at all! :(
A newspaper article on card etiquette that I read today, basically said the same thing.

Do you think that I am over-reacting and should just go eat some more rum balls and chill out?

Did you ever look up "naughty" words in the dictionary when you were younger?

do you ever feel like you're talking to yourself?
is it because you really are or is it because most of the time you are being ignored?

i need a vacation, how about you TQC, could you use one too?

After cleaning up for the night

1: To all evangelical, ambidextrous, trapeze artists, who at some point have used shoulder pads as bra inserts, what kind of milk do you drink?

2: To all homeless, anemic entomologists, who are well versed in the writings of Aldous Huxley, do you ever use safety scissors? If so what for?

3: To all people with internet access, with an aversion to datacollection, who have to much free time on their hands, how do the mating habits of thumbnail crabs parallel the courting rituals illustrated in Icelandic folklore?

My SO and I have this running joke. When we're watching a movie, one of us will say "Actually, ________ isn't even acting in this film. They just followed him/her around with a camera for a few days."

This makes for brilliant results sometimes. Examples: Crazyass Tom Cruise in War of the Worlds, Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean, everyone in the Harry Potter movies (lol Ralph Fiennes as Voldemort), and so on. Yes, this is pathetic and horribly geeky and just awful. I don't care.


1. What other movies would work well for this? I want to WIN.

2. Do you have any silly games like this with your friends/family? TELL ME.

HALP!

HELP! My Katana II phone by Sprint Networks just fucking died on me. I've had this phone for less than a year. What happened was, I had it in my bed somewhere and I recieved a text. I was in somewhat of a rush, and i frantically grabbed my covers. My phone went flying across the room and it hit a tile floor and it black screened. WHAT SHOULD I DO!? I tried removing the battery pack and putting it back in but that didn't work!

 so.. not to repeat yesterday's incident.. i'm pretty sure google cannot answer this question for me, i need opinions rather :]

has it ever happened.. that your feelings were so strong for someone it made you physically sick whenever someone said their name.. or you knew they were in close vicinity..?

is it normal to vomit and shake uncontrollably whenever you know that person is around..?

When you were younger, did a movie or book influence the way you acted/carried yourself, maybe even to this day?

The book and movie of Matilda persuaded me to be a teacher when I first read the book in second grade, and I haven't looked back since.

My brother plays the drums on Rock Band constantly. Will it give him better rhythm? Would the real drums be marginally easier for him to learn now?

ETA: lol I can only hear his drumming and not the game and I can tell he is playing My Sharona. What other songs can be immediately and easily recognized by their drum beat? There's probably another term for that but I asked my music friend the other day what the equivalent of a riff on a guitar is for drums and she didn't know. TQC, what is it?

Won't you smile a while for me, Sarah?

1) What musical group do you think you've been listening to/a fan of for the longest period of time?

2) What solo musical artist do you think you've been listening to/a fan of for the longest period of time?

3) If you had to be an entertainer, what would be your craft (stand up comedian(ne), lead singer in a band, daytime talk show host, etc)?

4) If you were an entertainer that toured the world, do you think you would fool around with groupies...you know, in a sexual manner?

what's the last random thing that pissed you off?

I saw this bumper sticker on someone's car on my way home today [the red one on the left, not the 'vote' one]. why would you openly broadcast how ignorant/rude/inconsiderate/WHATEVER you are?

Blew fuse

Ok, here's the scenario: We're moved into a new home (not NEW new, as in built in 2007, but it's new to us!) Home inspection passed with flying colors. We did have an electrician in and paid close to 900 bucks for him to put a new fuse box and upgrade what we had. We have 220V. Everything was working fine until tonight, when I plugged in a new space heater in my office/computer room. Blew a fuse. Flipped switch, put heater back on. Same damn thing. Don't have any other major appliances running. What would cause this to happen?

I think I had an encounter with a ghost/spirit last night. Somehow a bunch of balloons ended up in my living room (from the kitchen) and they had a balloon full of sand as a weight. Is that even possible?! I swear, something moved them. I would never put them in my living room like that.

Have you ever had an encounter with a ghost/spirit? Do tell!

LAST MINUTE INVITE, Y'ALL!!!!!

omg. So I was invited to a private Christmas party for a gay magazine, but the BFF I was going with just came back from Temecula, and her car needs an oil change.

I do not drive. My other BFF (who works for the Dental Society) has an assignment due for work, and pretty much everyone else I called has a similar excuse.


There's an open bar from 9-10pm with free unlimited drinks (sponsored by Absolut, I think), free food, free copies of their mag, etc.

Open bar just started as of this posting so we better hurrrrry! Who wants to go?

What Would Wonder Woman Do

I didn't get the job I interviewed/was hoping for...

1. When you apply (and interview) for a job and are passed over, and they keep your application on file, do you need to notify them when another job is posted? Or do you hope they actually dig through the paperwork to find you?

2. What's a nice way to write a "thanks for considering me" email?

3. How do you get over disappointment?

I've drank an entire bottle of Arbor Mist. I'm off to go through icanhascheezburger.com now...
