What do you think of EMA?
For the link lazy, it's weekly installments of £10-30 depending on your household income, for 16-18 year olds in full time education, providing they have no absences from school.
I get the £30, and it makes a big difference, but I know people who are just cheating the system, and then spend it on clothes etc.

So, uh, I'm a waitress, and today a customer who apparently has a bit of a crush on me gave me a computer as a gift. A cute little baby computer and asked for my phone number. This was all very embarrassing as my boss and coworker were watching.

I am not attracted to him/her (his name is Jessifer and he wears make-up, lol and fyi), and don't want to give him the idea that I am.

What do I do?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

what movie(s) make you weep like a baby?

I dont just mean sometimes when you watch them you'll cry...i mean EVERY time, like you have no control over whether or not you're going to cry?

what parts in said movie(s) are particularly tear jerking?


I am aware that it makes me a nerd but I bawl my eyes out during Return of the King. To a lesser extent I do this with the other Lord of the Rings movies but ROTK is the worst by far. I just had a marathon with a friend in which we watched all three extended editions and for the past 45 minutes I've been sobbing like a pansy.

I can;t even narrow it down, I probably start getting misty around when Gandalf leaves Rohan with Pippin but there's just so many parts that send me reaching for the tissue but the ending is obviously the worst...so sad and so beautiful and happy at the same time.

Thanks to a piece my friend wrote, I'm quite interested in Saint Francis of Assisi. Mainly the fact that he's the patron saint of/against dying alone, depending on what you read. I'm confused on that part.

Do you know anything about him?

Can you explain to me what it means to be the patron saint of dying alone? Against dying alone?

I'm just wondering if he's supposed to comfort people who are dying alone or if he makes them not alone or what. I'm very confused.

At the risk of sounding like a whiny brat...
My boyfriend of three months and I have been away from each other for about a week, and he hasn't called me in three days. I told him beforehand that I would like to talk to him every day that we're away. To add to that, over the weekend, he went to the movies with a girl, which wouldn't usualIy upset me, but he hasn't called since before the movie outing. I'm pissed. What should I do?

Although usually appreciated, I would prefer if you didn't give sarcastic replies like, "Get a life," or, "Bury him in 4.7 tons of Twinkies." Thanks.

I turned on my computer this morning and it got all wonky on me, so I had to reboot the bad way, by hitting the power button. My wallpaper disappeared, and when I try to put a new one up, it won't let me. What the hell is going on? Did IT block me from changing my wallpaper?

Technicalities of affairs

I'm sure there are a few people out there that have had affairs.  Assuming that both parties homes are out of the question due to kids/spouses/nosy neighbors, that you had to resort to a hotel.

a> Chain or locally owned?

b> How do you handle check out, if neither of you plan to actually spend the entire night?

c>  do you ever get questioning looks at renting a hotel room fairly close to home?

Edit...I added question marks...lol
And, this is a hypothetical question, not something that is going to happen, so don't judge me too harshly.  I could have phrased it as 2 independant consenting adults needing a private place...

Trying it again...

Ok...I posted before...and got a lot of flack about how I posted it, so I'll try it again...sorry if it is a bit redundant.

I am in a polyamorous relationship. Due to there being kids at both residences, and at one the potential for "Mrs. Grundy" to be snooping, a private place needs to be secured for more 'intimate' occasions.

Nearest hot tub rental place is 40 minutes each way, so while it works, it is difficult to carve out that big a slice of time.  Can anybody offer advice?

(to those that answered my other post, this is a bit more accurate, so perhaps the advice will be a bit better.)

HALP!

Inspired by the cereal question. I used to eat this awesome cereal that was made of something healthy that no little kid should like. But I loved it. It was shaped like an O (but the two bottom ends were flatter), and it was brown. I think it might have been bran-something or fiber-something. But it was SO GOOD.

Anyone know what the name of it was? If you post a pic, I can yay or nay it.

the electricty in our house was messed up for over a year; (the lights would dim for a few seconds and then come back up again?) it got worse over time and eventually the fluctuations got so severe they would shut off the TV.

apparently it was something wrong on the power company's end and they basically fixed it, but now my TV turns off for a few seconds and then will turn back on again...do you think this could be from the power fluctuations that would shut it off before? do you think it's hurt? or just old?

extra info that no one cares about:
- i haven't watched south park in about a year, but i have the whole first season on dvd
- i had battle royale on in the background this morning while i was drawing. i wasn't paying attention because i was drawing, and i don't understand japanese, so i have to read the subtitles...SO i totally need to watch it again. (i've seen it so many times, but omg nanahara is hawt)
- i just barely started watching the l word the other night on youtube...i'm up to the 8th episode of season 1. i haven't decided if i like it or not. but i have barely watched it, SO IDK! i think jenny is a cunt. D:
- i am drinking coke + vodka so what movie/show would go well with that?

EDIT: i also have battle royale 2 which i haven't ever seen all the way through. should i have a BR night and watch them both?

My husband and two of his male friends are going to NYC for a comic book convention (shut up) in April. I was thinking of going with them. I could stop by the comic thing, but then head out and check out the city while they stayed there. Here's the problem: It would have to be all 4 of us staying in one hotel room - I guess the other two guys couldn't afford to share a room while my husband and I had our own.

Is it worth going to NYC for 3-4 days if I have to share a room with 3 guys? Would you do it?

What is something that terrifies you?

Years ago I used to watch a programme called Strange But True. It was about paranormal phenomenon type stuff. One episode they had documententing a poltergeist. It was particuarly bad and these 2 kids were scarred for life because of it. Furniture would be thrown across the room and fires would start. Anyways, they apparently recorded this poltergeist talking through the little girl. And they played it on this episode of Strange But True. I'm sceptical about all this stuff but I watched this episode when I was about 10 and I didn't sleep for weeks on end because of it. I don't usually scare easily, I have a pretty strong stomach and can tolerate just about anything but this thing was repeated a few months ago and I still could not bring myself to watch it!!

I'm more of a walkman and tapes kind of girl because I don't like keeping up with electronics and there's nothing quite like a mixtape someone makes you.

Anyway, I'm on a computer that uses Windows 98 and I use Windows Media Player 9.
The problem is that I can't transfer my music to my cheap IPod knock off because Windows Media Player 9 doesn't have a sync tab.

My question: is there a music player I can download for free that is compatable with Windows 98 that will allow me to transfer my music to my IPod knock off?

Are there any cords for me, other than the super-short one? Is the super-short cord really a converter, and I'm just stupid?
Thank you for any answers.

hello , wondering if i could get some advice.

 I love my boyfriend, but another guy has been on my mind  occasionally....since we first got together.

When i first was seeing my boyfriend i was also seeing someone i met before him. the guy i was seeing before my boyfriend did not want to go out because he came out of a long term relationship. i decided to continue to only see my boyfriend as we became officially a couple. The guy i was seeing before kept calling for me but i told my roomate to get rid of him, she told him i had a boyfriend. I continue to go out with my boyfriend for almost a year and then the other guy then tells me on msn ( the only place of contact) that he regrets not asking me out and that he really likes me. Now  its been a year and five months and he still pops in my head. things are getting dull with my boyfriend who i live with now, i find myself wondering what it would be like with the other guy. I love that my current boyfriend helps me out a lot and loves me, and i know i love him, but am i truely in love with him? Makes me sad because we talk about being together forever, sometimes i belive it will happen others i dont cause im upset or annoyed with him.  I cant make any wrong moves. what do you think?

I'm starting to realize that if I realize that I like a guy, I can't talk to him anymore. WHY?!?!?!

I start to act really boring and it's either really awkward or ....plain boring. And then I start to feel anxious that I'm boring him. This is especially likely if he likes me back.

But if it's not someone I'm not conscious that I like, I can talk for hours with the person.

HOW DO I FIX THIS?

I was doodling in a class and this guy told me to draw him. Should I

a) Do a detailed drawing of him, only make it make him look REALLY ugly
b) draw him with lots of muscles
c) do a full-blown, realistic, carefully done, accurate drawing of him just to freak him out. Possibly say something when giving it to him like "this was the most fun I've had in a while, because I got to stare at your face for hours" (if choosing this option, please come up with a creepier and more clever thing to say?)
d) other

?

ETA: If I do C, what should I say?

what do you think I should say:

1. "I didn't have to look a picture of you to draw this. I only had to look in my heart."

2. "I drew this when I was looking in your bedroom window last night"

3. Ask him if he likes it then say "it'll never be as good as the original"?

4. Describe all the things I noticed about his face in detail

5. Other

So, what's a good way to dry out around a dozen water-logged paperback books?

Your conditions: no hairdryer or portable heat sources (like a lamp), no working fans, and no way to get them close to the heat vents short of ducktaping them to the registers.

I had no idea how long they were soaking before I got home, so I squeezed as much water out as I could then set them out on a counter covered with paper towels. They're facedown at the moment, with the halves fanned apart as much as I felt they could go without ripping the weakened pages.

Because of where and how I storing them they're all books I've read before, so it's not urgent that they be recoverable. They all happen to be ones I'd like to reread at some point in the future, though, so any help is appreciated.

I'm applying to a nursing program that starts Fall quarter. It doesn't ask for your ACT, just your accumulative college GPA, volunteer experience related to nursing, and 3 essays. I have a 4.0, one volunteer experience (there are 4-5 blanks for more entries), and I am pretty good at writing essays. Do I still have a decent shot at getting in? :(

Scary girl

I remember seeing a facebook group about a picture of a scary
girl dancing at a party.
She looked quite frightening and hunchback-esque.
Does anyone know who I'm talking about?Possibly have the pic?

Guy Help

I am burning CDs for a guy that I like. One of CDs is from Laibach.

Since many of the songs are in German, and I'm fluent in the language, should I translate the songs for him? Or would I just intimidate him? He knows that I am fluent in German.

Does anyone know the name or brand name of a fabric used for leotards that would hold up being reconstructed with heavy metal pieces for non-functional costume armor? Something that is flexible enough to move well in, but wouldn't stretch or tear under the weight of parts attached to it? (Ideally, it would be mock turtle neck, but long sleeves are a must.) What type of stitching would be good to secure holes made in the fabric for attaching parts?

If you were given a million dollars that you had to spend in 24 hours, and you would lose anything left over after thay day, what would you spend it on?

Are women's literature college courses actually a good place to meet single females? (I'm already registered for it, but I thought I'd see if the rumor was true. My Black Women Authors course was mostly white guys, and, of that, mostly athletes - the course counts for two requirements and isn't a lot of work...)
