2. Do you have a Christmas/Seasonal Holiday icon?
Do *real life* friends know that you use LJ? Why or why not?
Have any of you ever had any "horror stories" involving LJ/Myspace/Facebook., etc? Whether it be a stalker or something you wrote in a journal about someone or that was secretive and it read by someone you know in *real life* or that you didn't want to read it. Do tell.

Usually when using web it starts as Web 2.0.

Mine's a lyric from "Do You Know What It's Like" from the show 'Zanna, Don't!'

You know I would,
If I thought it'd do any good.

What is your favorite movie spoof and what movies does it make fun of?
...yeah, that happened to me last night. :-D
I need your help with my Christmas tree catastrophe. My brother and his girlfriend (both live with me in my house) decided to bring home a live tree for Christmas. The particular tree that they decided on, was the remains of the one bought to make the grave blanket* for my son's grave. There is still 5 good feet of tree left, even after the lower branches were pruned for the blanket, and it could be a nice tree. I, however, hate it. In my opinion, this tree was bought for a purpose, and that purpose was served when the pine decorations for my baby's grave were completed and put on it. Since it has been up in the house, I have been mean and hateful and crying hysterically. This tree does not represent Christmas to me.
So, would it be wrong and/or unkind of me to ask that the tree be taken down and we find some other alternative to our Christmas tree situation/needs?
* A grave blanket is a decorated bed of pine that covers the grave typically November/December thru February/March to protect it from the snow.
all my life we always had prego in the house, and ragu was considered to be the evil brand. recently, my dad, oh a whim, got RAGU! omg BLASPHEMY!...so i tried it, and guess what? i like it better. *feels guilty*
what condiment brands have you been faithful to , not because of taste, but based on the fact that that's what was in your house as a kid? best foods vs. miracle whip, hidden valley vs. newman's own, french's vs. heins...you know. OR, did you rebel and start buying the competing brand just to stick it to your parents??
what about the all-mighty chevy vs. ford debacle that people get so caught up in? my family has always avoided that by sticking with toyotas and hondas.
any other big-brand debate things that i didn't mention?
I have lived here since I was five years old, and not only is the local air force base's flight pattern right over my neighborhood, but I live a mile - maybe less - away from the train tracks. Between the airplanes ahead and the trains nearby, anybody else would have a hard time concentrating. But it's my lullaby sometimes.
2. Has anybody ever bought you paid time on LiveJournal? Was it anonymous, or did they let themselves be known?
An anonymous benefactor just gave me six months of paid time for Christmas. I now have room for 111 icons. I don't even think I have 111 icons!

For the first time ever I want to cry at work. Everyone did big, fancy gifts for this last day, and I just spread my gifts out, averaging $5/gift through the week.
I feel so stupid now.
When was the last time you felt socially stupid?
i'm not sure whether it's from a book or a movie/tv show but it's kind of sweet and it's been making me awww when i think of it.
it's a guy telling his girl how awesome she is and goes something like "i love the way you get dressed and accessories in front of the mirror and then give yourself little shrug as if to tell yourself that, that's the best you're going to get and walk out the door"
anyone know what i'm talking about? or should i start writing my own script?
2. Who was your favorite member of the Babysitters Club?
3. If you are a hockey fan and were given the option of serving Chris Simon with his punishment for being a giant douchebag, what would you do? Cruel and unusual punishment is permitted.

The teacher and the principal of the school has been notified. The bully is not allowed in the classroom unless a teacher is present, however, their behaviour is continuing. Your child is now afraid to go to school...

My cats received one as a gift from someone a couple years ago, and it became their favorite toy. For some reason, it's one they never got tired of, but it's finally reached the point where it needs to be tossed, and I have no idea where to get a new one. My grandmother gave it to them, but she passed away last year, and I don't know where she got it. I tried googling it, and the closest thing I came to is the picture that's posted - it's not my pic.

I've only ever had a really mild version; I was on my back, and wasn't exactly frozen so much as I really, really didn't want to move, and I could hear some horrible little animal hopping its way up my bed.

Well, the party is long gone and I am STILL getting tons of cards from people. I have a stack of maybe 100, and I'm sure there are more to come (I also receive the ones addressed to the company in general by default, so I get about ten per day from that alone). I have a feeling that after New Years I'll be told to dispose of them, since there's no way we would want to hold onto them. I'm feeling a little guilty about just throwing out all of these beautiful cards. Is there some kind of charity I can give them to? Whether they can go to sick kids, wounded soldiers, or even if they can just recycle them, I would much prefer that to having them rot in a landfill. I live in Northern VA, US if that makes any difference. Thanks!

My friend has always been designated driver for our club events. He's always the one picking everyone up and dropping them back home. I've always felt bad about it 'cause it wastes his gas and time, but I don't have my liscense yet. One time, he drove us to a conference that was like 2 hours away and dropped us back home. Right when he dropped me off, I gave him some money, saying that I appreciate that he drove us and that it's for the gas. Today, I gave him cookies when he picked us up, saying it's a little thank you gift for driving us. I've always thanked him a lot for rides.
On Monday, he will be driving me to a service project with him. I'm planning on giving him $25 when he drops me back home, saying that it's a little something for the holidays because I appreciate all that he's done for us. Also, I'd mention that I would get him something more personal, but I don't know exactly what he wants and with money, he could get what he wants. Would that be a little over the top? We're not super close in that we exchange presents, but I really appreciate what he's done for us. Should I give more? $30? $35?
