Is it just me or is the following incredibly wanky?:

My blog performs the movement of its own composition by reflecting on the act of writing and by using language that draws attention to its own structure. As a performance, the act of writing is a relational act, it connects domains together through this movement, thereby encourage the reader to become present to the perceptual movement of reading. Drift. My blog allows you to wander aimlessly. Explore adjacencies. My blog begin anywhere, because not knowing where to begin is a form of paralysis. My blog is here, near you in the cyberspace.

That kind of pretentious dickery always seems to annoy me more than it does other people.

Dog name

I'm getting a dog and hopefully after a month of waiting I'll be getting her this week. She's a black half lab/half pit with some white markings. I'm looking for a name with the following qualifications:

  • Needs to be a word before it's a name, so anything like Sandy is just okay but something like Poppy is better
  • It should be two syllables
  • The name should be able to be expanded somehow. Armella doesn't work but Sandy works as it's short for Sandra Sue.
  • It works for a girl and won't make people just assume she's a boy, so Butch is out but Lampshade wouldn't be

I am in a state where i literally can't sleep at night and then i pass out at around 10 am. I am going to see a doctor about it cause nothing seems to be working.

Lime and black pepper chips. Samboy chips as well.

to make-up/skin care users

Where do you buy your make-up/skin care products? Discount store, department store, Avon Lady, Marykay Lady, drugstore, on-line, etc.? Do you have a product you 'just can't do without'? Do you stick completely with a certain brand or (like me) use all kinds of different brands? Do you try new products when you see America's Next Top Model/whoever in those glossy magazine ads urging you to try the newest lip gloss, skin renewing lotion, etc?

i just started taking fish oil caplets and i keep burping up a fishy taste. it's pretty sick but they have omega-3 fatty acids and are good for me! especially since i'm not big on actually eating fish. i also take a women's multivitamin.

also, has anyone read "you: on a diet" by drs. oz and rozem (that might be spelled wrong)? what'd you think? i read it last night (hence the fish oil this morning) and to be quite honest, i really liked it. it is very interesting to learn about how your body processes food as well as the emotional component to eating. they also use simple and cheap suggestions for food and exercise, and acknowledge the role of alcohol and sex in dieting. anyway, i liked it.

internet strangers! I'm freaking out!!!

So I have been writing letters to James-my-ex-therapist for about a year and a half now. He helped me a lot when I saw him, so we like to keep in touch and exchange niceties.

Sometimes I like to FedEx him strange and/or provocative things. For example, I have a tarantula that molted, and I sent James the exoskeleton. I think he has come to expect this type of oddness from me.

Anyway, the question: What weird and/or provocative thing should I send him next? Serious and especially non-serious answers, please.

ETA: Who's crazier, me, or the therapist?

Perhaps I should send him this page printed out.

God is actually an author. The world around us is their story. So although they may love us all (as characters in the story) and although some of us may be good people, they have to make us suffer (even the good people) to keep the story interesting.

Why does my cat not cover up his poop in the litterbox???? He used to do it; he covers it up outside, just not in the litterbox.

It smells so bad! How can I help get rid of the smell? I have a box of scented Baking Soda that I sprinkle on it (or dump (haha, dump)) and I have one of those little automatic air fresheners set for every 7 minutes, but I walked down the hall, and a good seven feet away from my room I was hit with the smell of cat shit.
I'd let  him out to go poop, but he never goes to the door, he just goes to the box.

I was at the Post Office a bit ago and I held the inner door open for a guy (probably a good ten-fifteen years older than me). He smiled and thanked me and then rushed to get the outer door.
"Let me get that un fer ya. S'my job." And he kinda grinned. I grinned back and thanked him and went to my car.

One part of me was thinking. "How nice! Chauvinism isn't dead!"
And yet another went "What a fucking pig! Like I can't open the door for myself?"
And another "Who cares what the motive was, it was nice"
"You held one open, he held one open. Just being polite"
And the last one "Haha, that first moron in your head said chauvinism instead of chivalry. You're an idiot" 

So, which voice in my head would you have been agreeing with? Well, yanno, besides the obvious last one. :D

Does that little narrative  indicate to you that I need more sleep?

Edit: I just saw a commercial for tonight's Wife Swap, with the clown family. Should I watch it, even though I'm terrified of clowns, just to see pissed off clowns?

Can you help me remember the name of this movie? I hardly remember anything about it other than a scene or two. Three (?) vampires invade a town and group of high school students, and they get girls to fall for them. In one scene, the vampire takes the girl on a boat ride in the dark, and when she turns around, he scares and kills her with his vampire form. But the most outstanding thing I remember about this movie is that a boy called his sister's boobs "canoobies." Does anyone know what I am talking about?!

Poll #1122365 6 Degrees of Limb Separation. Morbid questions follow

An eccentric, mentally unbalanced billionaire is convinced that his leg is under control of the Devil, and wants it cut off. He'll have a room full of the best doctors and prosthetic engineers in the world with him so save his life. He'll pay you $1,000,000 to hack off his leg with a fireman's axe. There will be waivers and other legal documents in place to guarrantee that you cannot encounter any legal troubles resulting from this decision, that it was entirely his and you were instructed how to best administer the severing blow. It'll probably take a few good swings to complete the deal. Would you do it?


The hackjob was a success! He enjoyed the situation so much, he wants to cut off your leg at the knee with a different but similar (sterilized) axe. If you let him cut off your leg, he'll pay you $25,000,000. The doctors will immediately reattach your leg, or offer you the best prosthetic money can buy (out of the billionaire's pocket, not yours). You will be given some painkillers (within reasonable dosage), but nothing can truly deaden the pain of having half your leg hacked off with 2-3 heavy blows. Would you let him do it?

Question 4b, the psychiatric injury question. Pat is clearly a secondary victim. But when I first read this I thought Oliver was a secondary victim too (he wasn't an any foreseeable danger when that accident happened).

My problem is, surely the exam board wouldn't have given two victims in the same category. That means that Oliver must have been a primary victim. Does that mean that he became a primary victim when he went into the house?

Baked Potato Bar Wedding

You go to a wedding and at the reception there is a baked potato bar with all the fixin's, including but not limited to 4 oz bbq beef per person, shredded cheese, steamed broccoli, chives, butter, sour cream, and real bacon bits.

Edit: There is also gourmet breads, spinach and artichoke dip, and some other dips oth hot and cold.

I have a very fragile relationship with someone who was once considered to be as close as a sister to me. Our friendship spans 15 years - since we were 3. Things happened and now we're not as close but we're rebuilding our relationship slowly but surely. We barely see each other every three months so when we do it's nice.

We're supposed to be getting together tonight for a few hours but of course, I'm sick. I never, ever get sick but of all times my body decides it hates me it has to be today. All I want to do is lay in bed with my tea and not move. The thought of finding the energy to take a shower is laughable. SO - Do I suck it up, shower and go meet her while I'm feeling horrible or do I lay in bed like I would really like to do but risk not seeing her for another few months?

ALSO - what is your comfort food when you're feeling icky?

How do you feel about people talk about things that probably they shouldn't? Sort of like a "hanging out the dirty laundry" type of situation. Does it annoy you as much as it annoys me (scale of 1-10 I'm at 10)?

My friend who's still in high school always talks about drinking/drugs/other self-destructive activities when she's at school. She did when we were in school together, and now that I've graduated she talks to me about how she talks about it at school. It's ridiculous. She's such a fucking attention whore. She got a DUI a while ago and she talks about it constantly like it's a badge of honor.

How do you tell someone that what they're talking about really is only interesting to themselves? (i.e. "So I woke up this morning, and I brushed my teeth and straightened my hair, then I went to work where this girl like, glared at me and I was like yanno wtf is your problem you know? And so before I clocked in I went into the break room and blah, blah blah blah blah, blah blah, blahblahblahblahblahblah..........")

i've had a cat for 10 years. i got her when she was less than 1 year old. up until semi-recently, she was always well-trained when it came to using the litterbox--hardly any accidents. within the past year or so, she's stopped pooping in her litterbox. she always, always pees in it, but only poops in it about 10% of the time. also, when she does this, she usually poops somewhat near the litterbox (it's in a room and she basically poops right outside the doorway). we've tried changing the brand of litter and she still does this.

I got this page-a-day calendar full of "would you rather" posits.  Today's was sort of a fun, silly one, so here you go -

If you had to choose, would you rather always have to wear:

a Klingon uniform and make-up from Star Trek
a Storm Trooper uniform, including helmet and face mask, from Star Wars?

This is probably more aimed at people who spend a lot of time in TQC and those who notice and remember icons more than usernames.  I've noticed an increase in the number of "House" icons as of late.  I started using mine when we redid them for the holidays, but now I'm wondering if I should reset my default to the one I used prior to that, the one shown here.
What do you think, TQC - this one, or keep on using the House one?  Other suggestions welcome too, of course.

Plus it is full time with Benefits and we have both a Hollister AND an Abercrombie in our nearby mall. I try to apply online but that doesnt work so I go into the store. I go into A &F first as it is the first one I see. I talk to the current MIT and she brings me to the computer and I fill everything in. She says she will have the Store Manager call me and I thank her and leave. I then go to Hollister, explain that I am very interested in the position and that I have already gone to Abercrombie but am interested in going through the program with them if Abercrombie doesnt have an opening right now. Hollister says to give Abercrombie a week and then come back. I thank them and leave.

I get an email saying that my application process isnt complete until I get an interview and should go over to my mall and schedule one. I bust ass over there when I know the store manager is working so I can schedule the interview earlier than later as I really want this job. The Store Manager then informs me that their District Manager is in charge of the hiring but that she will print the applications and give them to the DM the next day and that the DM should call me to set things up. Well, the DM was supposed to have been there yesterday and so theoretically I could hear from them any time now.

I figure I give them until Monday and then go in and talk to the Store Manager again and also say that I am going to go apply at Hollister even though I am still very interested in working at Abercrombie since when I talked to Hollister it seemed like they actually had spots open where as I did not get that impression at Abercrombie and as I said..I needed the job yesterday.

What else should I do? Can I do? Anyone who have worked with the company before have any suggestions or advice? I really like the company and the position sounds PERFECT for me and there really isnt anything else... and I am running out of money....

1)If you were allowed to sit in a class, and were allowed to join a project group, but when you talked to the teacher about whether adding another person would still be a problem, they said it was. what would you do?!*

*continuation of the "I can't get into the class I need saga". I feel horrible, if it helps. things tried: emailing profs. showing up to class. begging. puppy dog eyes.

I'm going to Anime Boston in march, and I have the strangest urge to dress as an internet meme.

If I were to choose any widely known meme, what should I dress as?

Yes, I know. Lamesauce, right?

*note: I probably won't actually do it.

What's the word to use to describe someone who is really good at picking up things from subtle clues. I keep on thinking of deduce, but that's not it.

My situation is that my friend wrote me an e-mail blatantly stating several times something she wants me to do, so I want to sarcastically say, "Since I am pretty [WORD], I can tell you want me to do this for you.

Please try to help me think of this word?

Edit; I was thinking of deductive reasoning. Thanks for playing!

Think back to games like M.A.S.H.
I'm looking for more games like that to play.
The kind where you answer questions, write things down, and they tell you about yourself or the "boy you like", things like that.
Do you know of any for me and my friends to try out?

So there's this book, right...

And I read it like...four years ago.
I believe the name was Monkey Wrench.
This book was about a video game company who created a murder mystery video game, then suddenly these people start dying just like they were in the video game.
Then this detective starts finding clues about the killer and finds out it was a hermaphrodite.
It's a really good book.
But here's my problem.

I don't know who wrote it...
I DO know that it's not by Edward Abbey, Douglas Brinkley or Liza Cody
You wouldn't to happen to know the author would ya?

So my husband decided to get drunk with a friend and then clean the house. He thought being drunk would help him be more motivated for some reason. I told him it was a horrible idea. After several hours, the house is worse than when he started and he has thrown up and passed out in the bathroom, leaving me to clean up the mess.

1. Would it be immature to taunt him with "I told you so!" after he wakes up?

2. What was your SO's last "bright idea"? Or if you don't have an SO, what was yours?

In order to be covered on my dad's health insurance I need to be a full time student. I go to community college and they have 2 spring terms - the 15 week, and the 10 week. IN GENERAL if I took 10 credits in the 15 week term, and 3 in the 10 week would that work? I don't see why it wouldn't as I'd be taking 13 credits but I'm a worrier. I'm concerned because for a little over a month I'd only be taking 10 credits. I plan on calling them tomorrow to find out for sure anyway. I hope this made sense.

Anyone own a mac and know how to clean the case?

I've googled how to clean my macbook, but nothing has worked.

It looks like yellow dots, almost like grease stains..  where my hands rest on the computers case. It isnt't like the normal stains I've seen on my old PC's where the space bar got all smooth from wear. It looks like maybe when I sprayed my perfume it got stained on the case. I've tried Mr. Clean Eraser :(

Any ideas?

I'm using Windows Movie Maker (uh huh) to strip the audio from some clips and re-synch it (as it's out of synch). Whenever I import the video, however, it cuts them from minutes long to seconds long, and re-importing them isn't helping. Does anyone know how I can get around this?


Does anybody know any good (better than Windows Movie Maker or iMovie, anyway), free video editing software, for the purpose I stated above? ETA: I'm looking more for programs people have used, rather than just google results. Has anyone used VirtualDub? Any good?

Last night, after I was asleep for about three hours, I was awoken to the feeling of something pressing down on me from about my middle back to the top of my head (I was sleeping on my stomach), and the sound of... a very loud noise Sounded like a person trying to make a weird monster noise... like "ALKJfas;odjf;ak!". Kind of deep, sharp, and very sudden.

My dog didn't do it, and after looking around after waking up, I'm fairly positive it wasn't a cat either. What the hell was it that woke me up last night!? It freaked me the fuck out.

I didn't get anywhere with my movie question, but maybe you can all help me remember the name to a song (or the band who sings it!).

Anyway, it's about taking an amputee, mounting it on your penis, and spinning it around like a record. DOES ANYONE KNOW THIS SONG?!

It has been killing me for days!
