can cats get colds?

I'm concerned. I have 3 cats. a week ago one of them started breathing weird.. almost congested. it sounded similar to when you try to suck up the last bit of soda out of a can with a straw. now my other cat has just started to breathe the same way. could it be that they've caught a cold? or could it be something more serious?

Do you like jelly beans?

If so, what's your favourite flavour?

Least favourite flavour?

I love sour lemon, carribean coconut and pomegranate. I hate banana split, cafe latte and CINNAMON. Yuck.

ETA: French Vanilla & Mint sorbet are also delicious!

so we have a new water heater. mom was broke, so i covered the cost. $700 for a new unit and installation. i am beyond broke now, tqc. this is huge for me.

i have a job that i work 15-20 hrs a week and it keeps me busy. but it's not enough. i'm also going to be observing in an elementary school 5 hrs a week starting next week, more than likely. is it crazy for me to think about taking on a work study job at school?

i usually tutor with the dss office, but there are other things on campus... the only one i can think of is library worker off the top of my head. i'd really like to do something other than tutoring because that's just more teaching i have to do. what kind of on-campus job should i look for?

What's the last thing to make you laugh so hard you couldn't breathe?

We just got a new dog. She's about 8 months old, a terrier mix. She's really excited all the time and loves to play. I was watching her while my mum took a shower. She really wanted to go to my mum though, so I cracked her bedroom door and let her in.

My mum just came out and kinda glared at me. She said

My friend has been bothering me about this show she can't think of. It would have been on in the late 80's early 90's. The show was hosted by some greasy looking guy and it was set in a garage/warehouse. There was also a dead dinosaur skeleton puppet. She thinks his name was bones. According to her in one part of the show he would stick his head in a hole and there would be a baby puppet inside with a big head.

Anyone know what it is?

 My boyfriend has a Motorola Razr from Sprint. He got a memory card that came with the phone, but we can't figure out where it's supposed to go in the phone (I guess the phone has a camera part on it). 

I looked at the Motorola manual online and there was a section on SIM cards, but I thought those were already in the phone before you buy it. Can someone tell me where the memory card goes? 


***EDIT***

I found the user guide and it was where you said, behind the battery. However there is a disk in there already and the memory disk they gave him is too big to fit anyway. 

Thanks for your help

Homework question (lol?)

So I'm thinking of signing up for Elance, because we could use the extra cash and my job is very slow at the moment. They want a tagline for my "business", and that's where you guys come in.

Have you ever spoken to anyone famous on the phone?
Which famous people have you met in real life?

I think I talked to Mo Rocca on the phone earlier today. He called our radio station and asked to speak to someone who works here, who wasn't in. So I asked to take a message and he left his name and number with a 917 area code (for New York City). Then I looked it up and he's a panelist for NPR, which is what our radio station plays. And it sounded like him.

I've met Anthony Rapp, and Deanna Casaluce and Mike Lobel (both from Degrassi).

"Buy this magazine or we'll shoot this dog."

Today my instructor said it was Rolling Stones and if we found a copy or scan of it we'd get extra credit, because Rolling Stone is so protective of it that they don't even have it on their web site.
I've been looking, and I keep finding shots of it on National Lampoon magazine, references to it on National Lampoon...


Was he wrong, and it was National Lampoon? Or is he right and NL just spoofed it?

(And if it *is* Rolling Stone, anyone have that scan I'm looking for?)


Edit: Yep, yep. Just sent him to http://www.magazine.org/Editorial/40-40-covers/7.jpg

I am temping for someone while they are on leave for the next few months.
Today I had to send out service request to third parties that assist us.
I was faxing the information to all the third parties since I was given no other direction.
Out of twenty third parties one of them called up and said they don’t take service request by fax.
He wants me to email the service request individually.
Any other day I would oblige and think nothing of this request. But today I am swamped and I feel like I am everyone’s assistant by doing these little tasks.

Would I be out of line to tell this third party to scan and email the service requests themselves?

Should I even have to readmit my paperwork by email?

Do you ever get irritated when coworkers whine about what their other assistant did (burped, fed and held their hand while crossing the road)?

Hai, TQC! Decide my future for me!

Should I drop my Economics class?

Reasons why:
My teacher is a grad student.
He's very hard to understand due to his Romanian accent.
His lectures are mostly ramblings about his life in Romania and what it was like growing up under communist rule.
I get nothing related to economics out of these lectures.

I'm really not sure if I should drop it or not. It's not unbearable, but it seems like a waste of time to go to class, since I get absolutely nothing from his lectures.

3) Could you tell me some facts about your most eccentric/weird/etc friend?
My friend Jeff is a metrosexual in every sense of the word. Anyone who isn't a close friend of his quickly thinks him gay, even I did at one point, but he's not. He's just REALLY into his personal appearance. We go shopping together, hell, we even share tips on different moisturizing products. He hopes to be a TV personality someday (he already has a show on local TV and is in college for telecommunications and broadcasting). He also says he is DEFINITELY getting Botox as soon as even small lines begin to appear. Heh. Many would find a guy this looks-oriented(but only about himself, he doesnt seem to require perfection with ladies, but then again he's never had a girlfriend) distasteful, but he's so damn funny(He openly admits he's bland and says if he owned a store it'd be called "Jeff's house of Navy and Khaki") and he's one of my best friends since kindergarten.

Yes

No
32(54.2%)

Let's say 'jenkem control' would be impossible to maintain, and you read how certain diets contributed to a better high. Such information, however, isn't known among the commn jenkem-sniffing crowd. All you'd have to do to be a jenkem peddler would be to adopt this diet, save each poopie in bottles, and sell them to street kids for $$! Since your poop would be the best, shitheads would choose to patronize your services over anyone else's. If all of this went exactly as I described, would you become part of the Jenkem Cartel?

Yes. Easy money, hard to get busted over, since everybody poops

iPod Shuffle

My sister and bro-in-law bought me a nifty seafoam green iPod Shuffle for Christmas.

Of course, I hand it over to the boyfriend to figure out, as I am usually technologically retarded.

He got it up and runnning. He put some music on it for me, assuring me it was in the right format and all that jazz (he works on computers for a living, so he definitely knows what he's doing).

It worked fine for a day.

(I don't think my dad will be happy about this, seeing as I think he's on my side about the whole thing.)

So what can I say to her when she brings it up again, as she inevitably will? My boyfriend and I are NOT engaged yet, for the record. So I want to say something polite, but vague, anytime she brings it up.

This is possibly a silly question, but oh well :) Basically, I ordered some Smart Balls, and before I start using them I want to confirm whether or not they're silicone. I tend to see descriptions say it's a safe plastic, somewhere it might have said it was silicone, but it was packaged with a sample of silicone lube--and as well all know, silicone toys + silicone lube = the end of the world, so I'm guessing it's not silicone, but I thought I'd ask. Anyone know?

Anyone out here use the Smart Balls? Are they as awesome as reviews claim?

And I was flipping through some ads for Ulta and they sell a few lines of these Bare Minerals type makeup. There's like, Bare Escentuals, ID minerals, Pur Minerals...what on earth is the difference between them all? Is there one that's considered better, in any way?

I'm gearing up for my first century (100-mile bike ride) this summer. However, the really good scenic routes near me are really only about 30-40 miles or so, and I'm not a fan of doing a lot of loops. If I'm riding that far, I want it to be interesting the whole time. Any advice on picking a route? 

Any other advice for training for this? So far my longest ride has been about 35 miles.

I'm a 50 year old first grade teacher and I'm considering entering the World of WarCraft. A friend who is a confirmed addict is working quite hard to get me to join and I must admit, I'm sorely tempted. He's already corrupted my roommate.

Right now, you all are my only evening entertainment.

Should I take the plunge?

is it weird that I think that new yorkers are more educated, or at least a little more educated then other people... because we get a free newspaper at every corner in the morning

My computer security check just said it found 4 high or very high "vulnerabilities" on my computer. Does this mean my computer has a virus? Where could it have come from if I'm on all the same trustworthy sites? What do I do if it's a virus?

Sickness and Disease!

1. What is your current ailment, if any?

2. What's your favorite sickness?

3. Any fun(ny) home remedies?

--
1. UTI. my very first and I hate God/Deity-or-lack-thereof-of-your-choosing for allowing it to happen when I am insurance-less!
2. I loved it when I had the chicken pox, it didn't itch. it just gave me a few red bumps. It got me out of school and my friends got to come over to try to catch it from me.
3. My mom thinks pepto bismal will heal everything. from heartburn to heart attacks.

What did your mom/dad/grandma/general caretaker do for you when you got sick when you were little? What made it special?  Is the routine you've adopted for yourself when you get sick now reminiscent of what was done with you when you were small?

How important is career advancement in your chosen field?

How excited are you about the next Star Trek movie teaser trailer?

Why is my computer refusing to auto-eject each cd when it's done ripping, despite having done so reliably every other time I've tried?

I've been accused of only liking snow because I don't have to drive in it. Who loves snow and also drives in it?

Edit: I mean list these in order of most hated to most tolerable, or something. I don't mean tell me what you have in your house. How would you rank infestations of ants, fleas, roaches, spiders, or rodents in your home? Which is the most undesirable, easiest to deal with, that sort of thing. Is there a common household pest I've forgotten?

Do you get annoyed with the blatant product placements on TV? (example: "Let's use our Chase Advantage Card to buy these ingredients." or "We'll check our messages on our T-Mobile Sidekick. It's so great for quickly sending and receiving texts and emails!")


They just drive me nuts because they are SO blatant. If someone is going to try and sneak a commercial in on me, I'd at least appreciate some creativity.

I am so angry at my boyfriend right now

Ok..........so we just found out that *we* are pregnant a few weeks ago, he is a very busy man. And I UNDERSTAND that. But when we are home TOGETHER I always feel like he puts off spending time with me. He cleans his office or yadda yadda. So then I find something to do...*without complaining mind you* But the moment he is done with his crap, he expects me to jump up and watch a movie or whatever and it REALLY bothers me! This is the second night in a row that we were going to spend time together, and its not until MIDNIGHT that he asks what I want to do!!!!!!!!!!

*Is this me being a bitch because of preggy hormones?
*Is my boyfriend just a selfish dickhole?
*Should I go take a looooooooooooooong bath and ignore him for the rest of the night?
*Should I punish him with great sex, and as soon as its over, I jump up and work on a crossword puzzle?
*Any other opinions?

Every time I fill up a glass of water from the tap it's cloudy at first and then the cloudiness slowly dissipates and the water is clear. Is this from minerals, dirty pipes, or what? My parents are too lazy to get the problem fixed if there is one and I am the only one in the house who drinks tap water, so...am I gonna die?

Is Pinkberry making its way to the "other" 48 states or am I just seeing it all over the media for no reason?

Do you have any superstitions/beliefs that go completely against your overall philosophy? Why do you think you have them?
