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?

I'm thinking about closing my shop and drawing mazes for a living. I'm really good at it.
Do you think it's a good idea?
Anyone else listening to Sexual Healing right now?

I forgot to put on deodorant today. Luckily, I have some at work, so I was only smelly for a bit. Have you ever forgotten your deodorant? Did you go out and buy some, or did you just let it be?
2)I'm making a booklist for next year. Would you care to recommend a book? Fiction or non-fiction. It really doesn't matter to me.
if no, well...FU what makes YOU so happy? HMMM?
if yes, how the hell do/did you tame it?
EDIT: Do you ever feel like if you eat too early in the day you don't have any willpower and will get fat as a result? I know it's irrational but I still feel hesitant about eating.

ETA: I forgot I wanted to ask this. If a woman pushes a man, and he pushes her back, is it wrong? Should women be able to hit/punch/slap/push a man without retaliation?
Edit: I'm thinking in terms of specific instances, not broad trends.
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.
when "small" is also a relatively small size?
Why do people act like the difference between "x-small" and "small" ...
is the difference between wearing size 0 jeans and size 20 jeans,
when really it is the difference between size 0 jeans and size 5 jeans?
Do you blame Hollywood?
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.
Here's a crappy cell phone pic of the front of the card:

Is there an apostrophe rule regarding people whose name ends with the letter s? Like, I don't know, say Britney Spears. And she had some... bread. Britney Spears' bread or Britney Spears's bread? I've seen both. How would you say it out loud? Would it depend on what kind of an s ending it was, like Chris vs. Spears? Chris' looks stranger to me than Spears'
Have you ever misinterpreted any internet lingo when you were a noob? I thought <3 was either a fucking odd ice-cream or a penis for the longest time when I was in Year 7 until a more 'Net savvy person clarified
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?
I found 20 dollars doing laundry. Wooo.

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.

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.
what's the crappiest thing that's happened to you today?
what's the best thing?
I have this.

Do you have any book recommendations for me (both fiction and nonfiction)?
2. What is the closest framed picture to you of?
3. How many times do you have to see a movie to be able to quote it?
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.

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.

My answer: Most definitely 'Jungle Green'

For $2,000, would you go to the nearest church for Christmas mass, approach the priest afterwards when he's greeting his flock, and then grab his asscheek tightly, and say, "I like how you roll, father. I've been with a few boys myself, and I've never held back either"?
For $10,000, would you walk up to your boss, grab a buttcheek firmly and say "Oooo, nice. Very tight. You've been working out, baby. I like that"? Thing to consider: future employment
For $75,000, at the next family gathering, walk up to your aunt or uncle (of the opposite gender), squeeze both buttcheeks in front of the whole clan (at the dinner table), and say loudly, "I've always wanted to do that. Incest is sooo hot"? Things to consider: future family gatherings, family gossip

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.

Thank you for reading.
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. :(
Does anyone else think that lobster has a boring flavour?
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.

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.

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! :(
