I am so stuck right now. :\
If so, with what?
I've got a nasty case of food poisoning. =(
2. What kitchen appliance would you go on a homicidal rampage for?
3. How many icons are on your desktop?
4. How big is your monitor?
What do you do if you're, uh, thoroughly enjoying a little "reference material" of your choice at the computer and someone messages you? Do you talk, ignore them, let them know exactly what you're up to, or what?
What was the last thing you ranted and railed about like a grumpy old Scroogey codger but ended up really liking?

I got food poisoning twice in the past month, the weekend before Thanksgiving and then the 2nd of December. It's been nearly 3 weeks and I still eat maybe half of what I usually do, if that.
I'm thinking of compiling a list of army/navy/marine/air force recruiters. Tomorrow when I pick them up I probably will just give them the list and offer to drop them off at their choice.
Good idea? Any others? I'm going to sleep now, but will read this right when I get up.
Is there a point in keeping people on your flist you can't trust (filtering entries, etc) or should you just defriend them and be done with it?
Would you be weirded out if people tried to be your friend in real life under such flimsy pretenses as they sometimes do on LJ?
If you're a rude/snarky person on LJ or in real life, are there certain things you won't make fun of somebody for or is anything fair game?
What are you excited about?
2) Does anyone feel like helping me out? I don't have Microsoft word, and I just have to see how long a paper is. ( I can just email it to you )
I just watched Friends with Money and I need something else endearing and lowkey...
I’m hungry and bordering on tired, but I’ve got another 15+ hours to be awake for. I also have an unexplainable cramp in my side.
If you had a long drive, would you prefer to leave late night and drive without any traffic, or would you prefer to leave during the day and possibly deal with traffic?
Do you enjoy driving?
So, people who are/ have been on anti-anxiety/depression meds:
What did you take? Did you get weird side effects? Did they ever wear off? And how long should I put up with this before I call the doctor and tell him Celexa's not doing it for me?
Ain't this the life?
I feel like a grinch every year because I really dislike Christmas. Anyone around here have a birthday on/near a holiday and kinda loathe that holiday?
Am I naive or just too thin skinned?
1) What was the last shameful thing you did?
2) If you have a cell phone, do you have a land line too?
3) If you have a cell and a land line, which do you prefer to use?

ETA: Thanks for all the suggestions, I'm going to wait a bit before I get him another pet. :)
( Collapse )
2)what do you accumulate?
comic books, books, beads.
3)Is having unorganized envelopes in a drawer something to freak out about?
I use "they", but I've heard some pretty bizarre things people have come up with to use instead...
2. Do you think eating non-breakfast foods for breakfast is weird?
Yes, but I do it anyway.
3. Should I make some tea?
I do! It's my first semester of college and I got straight A's. Granted, it's my first semester and classes are easy, but I haven't had straight A's since middle school so I'm proud of myself.
What kind of pet would you like best to have?
I would like a ferret.
I NEED IT.
MUST MAKE A CHRISTMAS CARD TO CO-WORKERS.
Anybody have any idea?
Holy shit. I've got the video as an .swf, and now I'm trying to convert the .swf to .avi. Simple enough, yes? Apparently I have terrible luck with this crap. I've tried four or five horrible programs that have done little more than suck up all the resources of my computer and fuck around for ten or fifteen minutes before going "LOL CAN'T DO IT, LOL".
Does anybody have a reliable way to convert a short .swf to an .avi?
ummmm.. how's your day goin? lol
ETA: sorry... possibly last night's baileys is still swimming through my blood system. apologies! can yall forgive me? hmmmmmmmm?
Are there certain degrees of OCD?
What's a moment you look on and smile that has happened this week?

Take digital pictures? What will I do with the rest of my life?

My question to you: What do you do for the dog? You don't know the address of the FoaF (you weren't driving and it was at night with no street signs nearby to check) so calling the humane society for him is out unless you can get the details from your friend (who is cool but isn't someone you're close to and is more loyal to the FoaF, who seems the sort to be offended by any action taken to fix the situation). Provided that you can find out the address, what's the best way to find a no kill shelter?
I live in Atlanta, an area with an extremely high kill rate for shelters. I hated seeing the poor thing out at night (it's around 30-35 degrees at night now) and I hate knowing that it's starving, but sending it to its death seems just as cruel. At least there are some people who care for it now, based on what they've told me.
2. On a lighter topic, anyone know a good recipe for a winter party alcoholic punch they'd like to forward along? Especially after seeing the dog in that condition, I could use a drink...
(edited for clarification... thanks for the answers - I'll be getting in touch with the no-kill shelters provided and seeing what they can do.)
Have you ever been so exhausted that little, trivial things seem like too much work? What's something you just couldn't bring yourself to do because you were too tired?
Why does my window keep opening? I keep locking it in place (and making sure everything clicks together) but I come back at the end of the day and it managed to slide open a few inches again! It's so cold :(
Backstory: there is this guy I like a lot, and I think we are in the throes of dating, but nothing has been officiated.
I'm leaving for about 2 weeks to my sisters, and it's near enough where I still keep in touch with my friends from there. I sorta have plans to go on 3 dates while I'm up there.
Question: Do I go on the dates with the 3 guys who live far away, especially since I doubt it would be leading up to any boyfriend/girlfriend thing (I've gone on dates with them before), or should I not chance the fact that the guy I like and more than likely will be eventually dating might get jealous?
This would be SO HELPFUL if I could get some feedback.

For those of you who care about what some internet person does to her head:
-I have blonde hair and brownish-greenish eyes: which color (or something completely different) do you think would look best?

Slightly unrelated, but:

For those of you who don't give a rat's arse about what I do to my hair:
-Is Oprah really a rich young white man?
-Can you dance?
-Is it a dumb idea to go visit my favorite high school teachers now that I'm home, and possibly interrupt their classes?
-Does the answer change if you know that this is their last day of classes before the winter break?
I have found two with my boyfriend. Our grandfathers were born one day apart in 1908. This is especially strange because our fathers/grandfathers were older than usual. (We were born in 1986). We dated 5 1/2 yrs before we found this out.
We both have the same relationship to attempted murder victims. His brother-in-law's brother was shot recently. My brother-in-law's brother was stabbed in the neck. Neither of them is in gangs or fights or anything.

Whilst talking about New Years resolutions he asks her to lose the weight.
(The extra 10lbs does not make the girl overweight in the slightest..)
Should she be offended/angry or not?.. because after all he fell for her when she was thinner, it's not his fault if he finds the extra weight less attractive.
Thank you like crazy in advance.

1. Do you consider time on LiveJournal to be well-spent, or wasted?
I fully consider it wasted time, but I also love wasting time.
2. Do you think LJ is a less wasteful way to spend time than watching TV? What about playing video games?
I think wasted time is all the same; "my vice is better than your vice" just seems stupid to me.

In football games, at the end of a winning season, the players may pour Gatorade over their coach, which is their way of saying 'thanks for getting us this far'. I think coaches of losing teams deserve to have something poured over them as well. Which would be the best substance to bathe bad coaches with?
I question why Gatorade is used to symbolize the victory shower. I think that something more pleasant should be poured on the winning coach instead. Which would you suggest?
It was revealed to me that she had been sleeping with my boyfriend while he was still with me. So we broke up and she promised me that what happened was just a fling, she didn't take it seriously, and out of respect for me, she wouldn't actually date him.
He started begging me to take him back and me being an utter moron, I let him lead me on. Except what while he's doing this, he's having another fling with her, and eventually they ended up together, despite both of them saying they had too much respect for me to let that happen.
After that I pretty much cut them both out of my life. I haven't spoken to or heard from either of them since then, except to laugh at the fact that when she moved away to go to Uni, it was found out that she had slept with pretty much most of the guys in her residence halls and my ex was rather angry at having being cheated on.
Yesterday, my sister calls me and mentions that this ex friend is going out clubbing with my sister and her friends tomorrow night, and if I don't mind her being there, would I like to come? I tell her that I really don't mind the fact that she's there and holding a grudge for four years over silly teenage drama is sometthing I like to think I'm above doing. For some reason, my sister proceeded to tell me that if I DID hold a grudge still, I could feel somewhat vindicated because now she's gotten really fat. Like 300lbs+ fat. I still don't really care.
Why am I being expected to still hold a grudge from almost five years ago?
Why the hell did my sister tell me she's fat now if I already told her that I don't really hold any grudge or hatred towards her any more?
If this had happened to you, would you feel vindicated with this piece of news?
I know my little sister loves me, we're pretty close and I know she's saying this just to make me feel better. But we're both adults now (I'm 21 and she's 20) and I'd like to think that when I say I don't care any more that she'd actually believe me. Or am I just reading far too much into this and should just laugh at karma biting this girl in the ass?
a) The work you do comes easily to you. You never have to put much more than a cursory effort into the tasks assigned to you, even though your coworkers may seem to have to spend longer hours to accomplish the same goals. You are lauded for your ability to accomplish everything assigned to you despite not having to put in any overtime.
b) The work you do is challenging, and requires that you put in extra-long hours, but you don't even notice the length of time you're spending at work because the work is so engaging. Accomplishing your goals is incredibly rewarding personally, and you are recognized for your extra effort.
So how do you determine personality traits/predilections/prejudices you should change, and traits you shouldn't cause they define you?
I personally think all of my traits define me and I shouldn't change any of them. Everyone should accept who I am and what I do, though that's no excuse for me to not be polite.

Edit: or to allow someone else to buy food for you using food stamps? Basically, is there any rule that involves food stamps?
Background story: My Aunt A pays my Aunt B's car payment. Aunt A is Mormon, and a fat cow. Aunt A has run in to some trouble with cash recently, so has asked Aunt B to chip in this month. Aunt B doesn't have a nickel to her name, so instead she offered to use her $200 worth of food stamps to buy groceries for Aunt A and her family, since they're having trouble with money. Aunt A denied the offer and said it was against her religion. Sounds like it's just her being a fat cow, as usual, but I wanted to make sure.
Another edit: If you were low on cash, regardless of your religion, would you allow someone to buy groceries for you?
Everybody's got a song that they love when they're drunk.
I'm a sucker for House of Pain's 'Jump Around' and magically know all the lyrics when I'm a few sheets to the wind.
I also love 'Funky Cold Medina'. Shout to Tone Loc. And ok. Maybe '99 Problems But A Bitch Ain't One' by Jay-Z.
I know it's the name of a drink, but what gives? isn't that kind of offensive?

Do you ever feel like you're the only 'young' miniaturist around? :( I do. I've been avoiding going to my club, because there's one teenager there and that's it, and she's very very shy, but everyone thinks we should be friends because I'm 22 and she's 17.
Are you in another hobby that you feel sometimes like you're in the 'wrong age group' for? Or the wrong gender perhaps?
Miniatures are for any age group, but people generally start accepting it as a hobby around the age of retirement, because they have more time and money and less fear of people going 'omg you play with dolls!'
edit: So, I decided to take action and create recruit_miniers
Join the underground movement to recruit/convert more younger miniaturists. Also get help with your own projects.

I know such a girl who considers me her best friend and drives me up the wall because she doesn't understand me in the least. Maybe because I already have a hard time with her because of that, it annoys me that she constantly asks scores of questions on why this is or why that is and how I feel about that...
Any similar situations?
I don't consider her a good friend, and we go to college in different states...what should I do? Try to distance myself from her? If so, how?

Do you hold the door open for them as you normally would so that you don't seem like a total ass to a potential co-worker, or let it slam in their face? Too many people work in the building for you to ever know everyone.
They have this friend of theirs (Ben) who's a little bit older than them and he brought his kid, 20, and the kid's gf, 19, with him. They all go out, tonight, when I'm here babysitting my bro's kids. I don't mind babysitting but I feel bad that they invited their friend's kids and not me.
I feel left out. I want to talk to them later about it but it might be a bad idea. Maybe I'm just having issues :P but I wish they invited me. Am I justified in feeling this? Do I just ignore them when they come home and throw knives at their faces as I leave?
Also, the dog is chewing on a bone. When she comes up for air, she's breathing really hard. It freaks me out, what do I do?
Why am I such a flipping idiot?
Ok, so, I live in Northern NY. Potsdam, to be specific. Tomorrow I am driving to my parent's house on Cape Cod, MA. I have a narrow band of good weather to drive in. If its too crappy, I can't go.
So, tell me, why the hell did I leave my car's lights on and drain the battery so damned much that the car won't even turn over? It won't even try. I can't even make the power locks lock!
Also, does AAA give you new batteries for free? I know they exchange batteries, I just don't know if its free.
Edit - Thankies everyone. I finally found someone who will help me jump my car tonight!

Failing that, how do you help them cope with the thought that they might not have hair in that spot for much longer?

What did you think?
I've heard good and bad things about it.
I have a mohawk. I shaved the sides shorter (1/8"), and bleached it. I wanted to dye the hawk green (a fairly light/bright green), make the tips black, make the fuzzy sides of my head black, and add a very small amount of black to the underneath of my bangs. But... my ENTIRE bangs turned hot pink... To make green + black look okay, I'd need to dye everything that is pink, black. And I don't want my entire bangs black.
What should I do? Should I just dye my hair something other than green? How could I save this?
And by bangs I mean all the stuff that isn't spiked up in this picture.

What's your LEAST favorite holiday movie?

My mom is ridiculously mad at me right now because I refuse to go on a family trip to Arizona that she knowingly planned for the week of my best friend and boyfriend's graduations, my best friend's graduation party, and my boyfriend's eighteenth birthday. It is also a week after my graduation and the saturday of a town-wide festival that I have attended with my friends every year since middle school -this year is the last we're all together.
I told her I wasn't going if it was that week - she said I could stay with my grandma - but then she bought me a ticket anyways, now she's mad at me.
Am I being ridiculous?
Can she just get the money back?
