I just synced a few old address books into the one on my macbook. Does anyone have a suggestion for an easy way to find and possibly merge duplicates? Thanks!
*What songs/artist/band can you not listen to anymore because it reminds you of someone/something?
*What song makes you go "Fuck, that was brilliant". Not one you like, or even love, that you find catchy or good...but one (or more) than you think is so amazing it really affects you.
Answering my second question, I think Paramore - My Heart (Live) is amazing. Hayley's vocals towards the end of the song blow me away, and I usually do not think much of live songs.
Why does my cat go batshit over celery? He LOVES the stuff. He'll even go so far as to roll around on the bag it was in. Does anyone else's feline go crazy over any other strange things?
TQC, I just found what appears to be a filling in my left molar that I don't remember getting. It's either that or two little pieces of metal stuck in my tooth. What the fuck's up with that?
Do you have any fillings/cavities?
Have you ever had braces?
If yes, for how long?
Do you like your smile?
Question for any TQC guitar players...
Do you have any tips for someone who's fingers don't quite want to bend and stretch the way they need to in order to play certain chords properly? Any exercises or personal experience that may help? I can play a lot of chords, but there are some that are insanely awkward and hard to play because my fingers wont bend right, and some I can't play at all because my hand refuses to. Any tips would be awesome :)
It's been a really long time since I've been to the airport! Can you bring soap on an airplane? I bought a bunch of nice soap from Basin that I need to take home, but I can't remember if soap is an acceptable carry on item. Thank you!

Why don't the Amish just like, get with the times?
I've seen a lot of responses here about threesomes, and I'm surprised by how many girls are into the girl+guy+guy combo. I'm curious. For those that prefer this situation, do you prefer that the guys are bi-sexual and get down with each other too? Or do you prefer that they are straight and pay attention to you alone? How about vag and anal DP?
What do you wear when you're going to watch Bill Gates?
i apologize ahead of time for the ew factor.
apparently i have the flu or some kind of food poisoning. except it didn't hit me until i was driving in my car last night. upon getting sick, i unfortunately didn't make it out the car window in time. i tried to clean it up the best i could. in the dark and feeling ill. but obviously it's still a problem and my car now smells disgusting.
ideally i'd like to go get the interior cleaning today. but i don't get paid until friday. any recommendations for cleaning my car carpet and interior before then?

Is it a hot den of snarkiness?
You work for a large organization but your department is fairly small and understaffed (you, 2 co-workers and your boss). Your two co-workers are consistently coming in early, leaving late and even coming in on the weekends to complete work. You can get your work done during the week so you don't feel the need to come in during "off" hours. But, do you feel any guilt about it? Do you make the attempt to come in anyway? Or do you just stick to the normal work week and not pay attention to what they are doing?
What is the most awkward thing you've accidentally said?
It's early yet, for me-but I figured I'd give time for people on different schedules to give input
My kitchen will be unusable by lunchtime so I'll have to go out. Should I get
Wegmans-in case you don't know it's a grocery store based in upstate NY that has all sorts of ready to eat foods-pizza, salad bar, Chinese, subs, pasta etc.
OR should I try Moe's Southwest Grill
I went to Wegmans

so lindsay lohan posed nude in the same setting, in a similar fashion, for the same photographer, as marilyn monroe

have you ever skipped class so you could sit home in your PJs and read TQC? because that's pretty much what i'm doing right now.

Which laws would you break if there weren't legal consequences for your behavior?
Are The North Face fleece jackets worth the price?
Okay TQC, I need your advice.
I was just thrown off of my parents health insurance. This wouldn't be such a problem, but I have asthma. Last night I had a small asthma attack and I discovered my albuterol inhalator was empty. My lungs have been burning all day, and I barely got any sleep. As I sit here writing this I can barely breathe.
My question: I live in NY, and is there anyway I can get some sort of government insurance?
I'm 20, I file my taxes independently, I'm not in school, and I'm trying to find a full-time job. I really need my Advair, and my inhalators.
Also, if you have asthma, are you using the newer inhalators? Do you like them?
So I called up CVS, and the pharmacist in there tried to run my prescriptions through, and the insurance cleared it. She said I have until the end of the month, so I have more time than I thought.
How do you feel about CBS showing an edited version of Dexter? If you don't know, it's the tale of a police blood expert who does his job, then murders serial killers in his free time.

If I were to write a song about you, what should it be called and why?
Can I see a picture of your residence?
TQC, I can't decide. I want to get tickets to see Ralphie May next month when he comes to the Improv here. But do I get tickets for just myself and my boyfriend, or do I get two extra tickets for his brother and their friend (who both also like Ralphie May)? (Tickets are only $20.) What would YOU do?
And what kind of tea do they serve in Chinese restaurants? I asked the waitress last time we went and she just giggled and said "tea". That doesn't help me. I really like it and would love to have some at home/work, but I have no idea what kind it is.
What is the oldest restaurant you've ever eaten at? What/where is it? We ate at one this weekend that opened in 1919 and has been going strong all this time. It was pretty good, too, I can see why it's still open.
How do you determine a letter grade from a GPA?

What's a kitchen appliance you don't own but wish you did?
Have you ever made your own ice cream? What flavors have you made?
will my heart ever stop hurting?
My stove/oven thingy in my new place is a "Jenn-Air" with removable burners that can be replaced by a griddle burner or a grill burner. The land lord showed us how to do it - its electric*, so you just unplug the set of burners and plug in the attachment thingy. He mentioned something about cartridges, though.
Have any of you used this kind of stove? Any tips or tricks? I'm used to the "switch it on" variety so this is all Greek to me. :)
Whats your favorite kind of appliance? What's your dream appliance, of any kind?
I want a refridgerator with a freezer on the bottom and a big crazy display on it. Annnd I want front loading high efficiency enormous capacity washing machines. And a blender that actually crushes ice. And a bagel toaster.
Is it better when I bold the questions, or is it annoying?
What would you do if you suspected your partner was having an affair?
I just got the last of my teeth filled (5 today, 15 total... I'm awesome, I know), and I can't really chew. Usually I can on one side, but this morning all the fillings were on the bottom. In my house I have: pudding, yogurt and oatmeal.
Should I just eat these or should I get something else?
What do you recommend?
I'm thinking about mashed potatoes from Popeye's. Does that sound better?
ETA: Cold things feel horrible on my teeth, so pudding and yogurt might be out. I'm not sure how terrible hot things are...
Who is your BFF? (best friend forever)
Do they know that you consider them a BFF?

Have you ever tried selling Avon products? If so, loved it, hated it, indifferent to it?
Do you have any mental disorders? Care to share what they are?
Yes, borderline personality disorder.
I applied for an internship and had a phone interview on February 8. My interviewer said she would "touch base" with me in about a week, and I haven't heard from her yet. I'm pretty sure I didn't get the position but I thought she would at least tell me if she had decided *not* to give it to me. I thought that was what "touch base" meant, give an update of sorts, regardless of the decision. But she also implied that it was going to take her a few weeks to make the decision, so I have little idea of what is going on here.
I was going to write her a "thank you for the interview" e-mail but for some reason decided that was lame and didn't, and I now I regret that, but it's way too late for that. I just want to get the rejection over with if I didn't get the position, so do you think it would be inappropriate to write her some kind of e-mail now? Something like, "I appreciate your having taken the time to interview me. I know you mentioned you would contact me in about a week and I have not yet heard from you, and would appreciate if you would update me on my status. I understand if you have not yet come to a decision, but I just want to let you know that I am still very interested in the position and I look forward to hearing from you" or something like that. How should I word it if I do e-mail her without sounding pushy?
What is something that it NOT very fun to do naked?
Your employer still hasn't given you your W-2. You've asked numerous times and have received the run-around so to speak ("my accountant quit on me", "I forgot" etc). Finally, he told you that he would have it prepared for you today. You call and he says that they have been mailed and he will have it to you by the end of the week. Do you:
1. Take his word and wait till the end of the week?
2. Report him to the IRS?
3. File your taxes now without the missing W-2 and note it in your return?
What is the grossest/weirdest thing a total stranger has asked/ told you?
Are there any chain restaurants that have Veggie Burgers besides Burger King?
I have a daughter. She's seven, and she adores the
quicksand ground I walk on.
Somebody told me that no matter what, she's going to start hating me in about five years when hormones kick in.
Is this true?
Can I prevent this? If so, how? If not, how should I react when she's screaming at me (that won't get me arrested)?

Will you post a picture of yourself so I can make you a Sim and include you in my Sims 2 game? (Picture(s) should be straight-on of your face, and fairly expressionless, and a profile, and maybe a 3/4ths view, but if you don't have those anything will work... the bigger the picture the better!).
If I make you in my game, what kind of clothes, house, and job do you want? Would you want a pet, if so, cat/dog and breed, plox. Also, should I name you after your real name, or your LJ screen name?
ETA I FORGOT TO ASK? What aspiration? Fortune, Knowledge, Family, Romance, Popularity, or Pleasure?
Do you want to be friends with my the Sim character of myself?

I'm rearange the kitchen so I can reach things and don't have to climb to get into the cupboards when I cook. And cleaning out the fridge.
Can you reach the top shelf in the cupboard? Second to top?
If you can't what do you climb on top of to get to it? (I usually climb on top of the counter top to reach.)
When was the last time you cleaned out your fridge?
What is the oldest expiration date you've ever found in your fridge or anyone else?
Do you have refridgerator magnets or find them tacky as hell or annoying as fuck because they are just one more thing that needs to get cleaned?
I want to get a small grow light and grow things in my kitchen because it is dreary as hell in here. Does anyone have any good recommendations for a light that is inexpensive or energy efficient?
What should I grow?
All this sunshine and the unseasonable heatwave has got me thinking- How do you think the world is going to end?
Does anyone here work in the field of forestry? Or do you know anyone who does? Specifically, Forest Soils or Forest Hydrology? What school did you go to? What job do you have, who do you work for? What is an average day on the job like?
It may be a long shot, but I had to ask. :-) Thanks.
How does one retrain their speaking voice? I somehow seem to have acquired a Valley Girl lilt over the years, despite the fact that I'm from Ohio and I've lived in Florida half my life. I have no idea how this happened. It's very embarrassing. I would like it to go away.
Some girl is selling a ticket for the last concert in the Spice Girl tour (in Toronto where I live).
However I don't want to go alone and I don't think any of my friends would be interested except the one who is already going.
And I feel like it's kind of lame to go to a concert by yourself (and because it will be sold out I can't go to where my friend is sitting/standing.)
What should I do?
have you ever spray painted something onto your body or someone else's body? what was it? how long did it take to come off?
Do you ever get butterflies in your stomach for no reason?
(It's happening to me now. It's weird.)
Do you ever know that something is going to happen before it happens? When specifically?
(Two times of note: 9/10/01. I was anxious as hell all day. I had to go to another city the next day and the night before, I told my boyfriend at the time I wasn't going to go. He asked if I was going to cancel. I said, "No, I'm not, but something is going to keep me from going." The other time was a few months ago. I got a weird good vibe about my older sister. I emailed my boyfriend and told him that I suspected something good was going to happen to my older sister. Two weeks later, she called me to tell me she's pregnant! Which is a GOOD thing 'cause she and her husband have been wanting a child for awhile now.)
What's the dumbest thing you've ever said in another language? What were you really intending to say?
I told my husband my glasses were made out of bread when I meant to tell him they were too wide in Dutch. Luckily I was practicing on him and didn't tell the optometrist that.

ANY website please, EXCEPT Google, Facebook, Myspace or LJ as I've already looked at those. :)
Pssh, what make YOU so special?
What's your favorite kind of internet drama?
1.) What's your definition of 'being cheated on'? Is it a peck on the cheek? Is it full blown sex? Anything in between?
2.) What's your FAVOURITE place in the United States? If you've never been, what's your favourite place ever? Pictures if you can?
3.) Have you ever heard of Burning Man? What's your opinion on it?
Ok. So. If Jesus was supposed to have absolved everyone's sins when he died, thereby making it ok to eat pork and work on the Sabbath, etc., then why are people all crazy about things like homosexuality and pre-marital sex and stuff like that? If people are supposed to have a tabula rasa post-crucifixion, what's the beef with all these other unabsolved sins? Does that fall under the whole "original sin" category? Why can some Biblical sins be written off and not others? Is it just a historical control/hypocracy thing? Picking and choosing? What's the deal?
Does anyone know of any combined Juris Doctor/Masters in Social Work programs? I was thinking of just doing law school and then I was thinking of going grad school for social work but I'm just not sure.
Any one know anything about this stuff?
Would you rather have an alarm clock that wakes you up
by shaking your bed violently
by gradually making your bed ice-cold (say, within 5-10 minutes)?
If you designed your own alarm clock that would definitely get you out of bed on time, what would it do?
I am going to attempt to cut my own bangs tonight.
What is the best way to do it to ensure I cut them evenly?
I was just watching the news and they said there's been an earthquake in southern california/mexico. anybody here feel it?
Have you ever tried a raspberry caramel macchiato?
Do you think it's THAT WEIRD to put raspberry in a caramel macchiato? Why does everyone look at me strangely when I suggest it would make a tasty drink?

I'm dumb and spent last night playing bomberman with the boy instead of *gasp* watching RAW.(to my credit, i had gotten very little sleep the day before and honestly believed it to be sunday.)
TQC, i've looked everywhere for the Hornswoggle and McMahon match but all I can find is the last 9-10 minutes. Anyone know where I can find the whole match?
I was sent a credit card offer and on a whim decided to accept it. By the time it got here though I realized I really shouldn't have done that. It says on the card that if it's not activated within 14 days that the account will be closed, and I haven't activated it. If I just chose not to activate it will it be as if I'd never accepted the offer?
I've already got the bill in the mail for their enrollment fee, do I have to pay that since I didn't activate the card?
Edit - I stopped being a moron, called and cancelled it. And I don't have to pay the fee. Yeah... that was a stupid moment, I admit it. Won't happen again.
What will make my cramps go away?
I've tired advil, midol, tea, pooping and threatening to cut out my uterus.
We're going on three days of cramps, here.
What are some songs about missing someone? (not necessarily romantically).
I applied to this rp community, and it took them about week to respond. I reapplied, and after a few days without a response I IMed the moderator. She said she'd get on it, and thanked me for reminding her about it.
It's been two days since then. If I ask about it again, is it annoying for the mod?
Do "could" and "spud" (potato) rhyme for you?
EDIT: clearly, the answer is "no". my bad.
All this Sims talk is making me sad I don't play it anymore.
1] What can I buy for my computer to make The Sims 2 run faster and smoother?
2] When's the last time someone yelled at you? What for?
I'm a teacher and want to work for another school board.
Last year, I applied to the board. It has several steps:
1. You fill out an application package,
2. Then they tell you whether or not your application has been accepted.
3. After that, they call you for a screening interview with the central board. This only happens as demand rises (i.e. if they don't need teachers at that particular time, they won't do many screening interviews).
4. When a job becomes available at a school, central office sends the principal a few applicants, and you get interviewed at the school.
Last June they sent me a letter informing me my application had been accepted. I'm currently working for another board, and kind of forgot about it. I want to call the central office, and remind them that I exist and express interest that I still want to move to their board.
How exactly do I do this? What do I say? I mean, I know I want to say "Hi! I'm here, I exist, and I want to come work for you" but how does one say that eloquently and professionally?
What are you all currently reading?
I'm bored. Will you entertain me by asking me a random question or telling a joke? Do you have another way to entertain me?
If you've ever flown - do you like flying in express jets?
I'm traveling from Grand Rapids, MI to Savannah, GA (4 1/2 hours of flight time) in an express jet.
what is the #1 thing that absolutely infuriates you?
1. Have you ever been photographed in the nude?
2. If not, would you allow yourself to be photographed in the nude if someone asked you? Assume they're not offering to pay.
2. Depends on what kind of photograph, the pose, etc. But probably not.
I'm feeling particularly feisty. Would you recommend a good documentary about consumerism? Books are fine too.
(Well, anything about sticking it to the man really as long as it is a documentary or book)
what kind of plastic surgery would you be most likely to get?
i'm totally not a fan of plastic surgery, but if i ever got a really bad double chin i'd be lifting that shit so fast.
Ever go dumpster diving?
What is the best thing you've found?
Can anyone suggest any songs about crushes and/or unreturned love?
I just cut open your belly.
What type of small being just came running out?
What do you have to confess?
My group has to create a mount for 3-D organic molecule models, and we have no idea how we're going to make it. Any suggestion of a design or some help with the construction? They are about 30x20x20 cm
And since that question's not going to get a lot of responses. What's your favourite type of medium to work with?
I like working with wood.

Have you ever tried deep-frying it?
PS Are you going to burn in hell?
Is this a question that a person really wants answered?
There's a person I need to call tomorrow but I have no idea how to pronounce their last name. The last name is Gionet. Is it jee-oh-nay? Joe-nay? I don't know...so if anyone has any suggestions I'd appreciate it. I wouldn't ask except it's for a job position and I want to start out on the right foot.
