I'm about to watch Reign Over Me alone. bad idea, y/y?
it's 1:00am and i don't think i want to be sad, but I've really been wanting to see it.
edit to add: "I just thought that if you wanted me to...I would. With my mouth. I would. You could lock that door...tell the nurse not to come in. ... I'd do it. I'd enjoy making you happy." WHAT THE FUCK? as soon as he came out telling his secratary about her, i thought "i thought (male) doctors/dentists aren't supposed to be alone in the room with (female) patients because of potential sexual harrassment law suits?" i hope this lady falls in love with charlie next.

-the best thing that happened to you today

I was thinking about getting a ferret or hedgehog when I move into an apartment in August or September. i thought it would be really hard to find one and research owning one, but it only took a little googling and i found breeders in my state :) hopefully i can look into it for a few months and do it.

My sleep schedule is completely reversed; while most are sleeping at night, I am awake, and while many are awake during the day, I am asleep. This has been ongoing. Tomorrow I am going to a theme park all day and will need rest. Should I:
Take a Xanax or two to fall asleep and snooze for six hours?
Let my body rest and not do anything stimulating, hoping to stay awake during the day?
What are you doing tomorrow that IS NOT St. Patty's Day related?
1. Have you ever had a prairie oyster? Comparisons/analogies/descriptions please.

Cruel Intentions 2, also, how did Lady Godiva feel?
3. Do cervix tattoos exist?
I know the answer is probably no, but I wish they did. Not on me, but on someone else, so I could see.
4. Your favorite onomatopoeia?
5. How could mermaids possibly be sexy in real life?
My roommate's air vent connects directly to my air vent. I am trying to go to sleep but all I can hear is my roommate and her douchetruck boyfriend having sex. The vent amplifies the sound . . . I swear to God it sounds like they are INSIDE my room right now.
It is both distracting and really REALLY disturbing.
What should I do? How can I erase this sound from my memory forever? How will I ever sleep again?
What is something you want but can never have?

i work on tv shows as a P.A. and tomorrow night I have an overnight shoot (3pm from tuesday afternoon until 5am on wednesday morning).
What would be better.
Keeping busy and going to bed at a reasonable but not early hour (think like 11:00 or 11:30) and sleeping late tomorrow (it takes me an hour to get ready and and hour to get down to set so I'd have to be awake by 1pm)?
Resting up as much as possible today, going to bed early and waking up late tomorrow?
any other suggestions so that I'm not a total zombie come 2 or 3 am? I'm only a day player I have a job on a different set and am just doing this because I have the day off and extra cash is always nice, so I'd like to make a good impression.
TQC, it is so far a slow and boring day at work and my boss will not be in to give me random strange things to do until at least this afternoon.
Will you tell me a funny story from when you were a kid?

Do you think heavy metal is music? Why? Thoughts?
Also, what is your opinion on it?
Which magazine are you most likely to end up on the cover of?
1) I buy soymilk, and the big cartons are in the refigerator cases, but there's little juicebox-size packs that sit on the shelves in another aisle. Why are the little ones shelf-stable?
2) When is the last time you had a visitor at your house? Who was it, and why were they visiting?
I have a well-deserved reputation for cynicism, cultivated over years of being jaded.
So why the hell am I so effing happy?

Do you feel guilty afterwards? Do you lie to certain people more often then others?
I just talked to my mom on the phone. I saw the dr on Saturday and she diagnosed me with strep throat and put me on antibiotics. My mom asked if they did a culture and then went on to talk about how they can't tell the difference between viral and bacterial strep. I lied and said they tested because I didn't want her to go on and on about how I shouldn't be on antibiotics etc. I feel a little guilty, but I know that now that I've started the antibiotics it would be worse for me to just stop them.

Some tech support woman from Dell will be here at my college dormitory in approximately 45 minutes.
1. Do tech support people like to be talked to, or should I just let her into my room and fuck off and do homework or something? I never know.
2. Should you offer these people drinks? Tips? Tell them hilarious anecdotes about my collegiate escapades? My parents used to always handle this one and I just stayed out of the way.
3. My motherboard and my fan are fried. I was told to back up my files, but I was also told that the motherboard doesn't have anything to do with memory and that I should be all right. Does anyone know anything about computers enough to tell me wtf is going on with my laptop? (other than the fact that it being a Dell is wrong enough)
4. I'm trying to fold up laundry to put it away, clean off my desk and back up my files all at the same time. How do I calm the hell down?

Does anyone know if there is a way to keep multiple MSN screennames open?
Ugh. I'm probably not explaining that very well. I have two MSN screennames, and there are different people on each one (one is for work purposes, the other just for contacts who are friends.) Is there any way for me to be online under both names at once? Some kind of chat program, maybe? I could have sworn there was, but maybe I'm dreaming. I figure if anyone would know, it would be someone here.

What is the point of having children?
Look, uh... we were both pretty trashed last night, and I know waking up naked in bed together probably told us everything we need to know, but... since I think you were a bit more sober than I was, what do you remember?
1. Hypothetical A: You want to get married. It's a fundamental desire you've had since you can remember, and it's very important to you. However, the person you're with for whatever reason can't get married to you (can't marry someone out of his/her faith, is fundamentally opposed to marriage, etc etc). You love this person very much and they love you very much - other than this one thing, you're extremely happy together and well suited for each other. Do you stay with them anyway, figuring happiness is worth more than a cultural institution, or do you move on and find someone that will marry you?
2. Hypothetical B: You are fundamentally opposed to marriage. It's not something you ever want to do, for whatever reason. However, your longterm SO has just been diagnosed with a fatal disease - doctors give him/her anywhere from 4 months to 5 years, it's not certain. He/she wants more than anything to get married and start a family, even knowing that they could die at any point in their family's lifespan. Do you marry this person, knowing you would bring them their life's happiness before they die, or stick to your non-marrying guns, knowing that you would have to raise the child alone if you had one?
(1) Are you a crier?
(2) What makes you cry?
(3) Does your crying ever frustrate you?
(4) Does your crying ever frustrate someone else?
(5) Quiet crier or noisy?
(6) Can you control your tears?
(1) Hellz yes.
(2) Being sad or frustrated, watching something touching or triumphant (underprivileged teen graduating high school? I got yer tears right here.), seeing other people cry... the list goes on and on.
(3) See, I cry when I'm frustrated. So then I get frustrated that I'm crying and ... well, you see where this is going, right? It makes conflict situations really difficult, because as soon as I feel I'm not expressing myself well, the waterworks start.
(4) Drives my bf crazy. He's never really sure how to handle me when I'm upset.
(5) Typically noisy, unless I'm trying really, really hard to be quiet.
(6) Not really, though (as stated above) I can sometimes control how loudly I cry.

Non-disguised advice question:
I've been trying to grow my hair out just to see what it would be like. I haven't had a haircut since September and it's now nearly to my shoulders in some places. By my calculations, it will take me another 6 months to get it to the length I'm going for, but I am nowhere NEAR patient enough for that; I might not even want to keep long hair for that amount of time, much less wait for it to grow for another 6 months and then keep it beyond that. I've already wasted 6 months on this, so it's kind of like I might as well just go with it because that's the most progress on hair growth I've ever made. But it's frustrating the hell out of me, and honestly I don't even like long hair on myself, I'm only doing it for the experiment value. Should I just cut my damn hair?
Also: I'm too cheap for extensions.
What are your favourite non-livejournal sites to visit?
I got a perm about 2 months ago, and the curls are still holding strong, and I hope they stay this way for at least another month. I want to dye my hair a dark blue/black color. My natural hair color is dark brown, some people think it is black. I haven't dyed my hair in over a year.
If I dye my hair with an at-home kit, will it affect my perm negatively?
What are some problems that could happen with a professional perm and an at-home hair dye kit?

Okay, so wow. I should ask for things on TQC more often. I start a three month temporary job that pays 9$ an hour on Wednesday morning. It wasn't from anyone on TQC, but maybe if I ask you guys for Lindsey Lohan doing the backwards crab walk , she'll show up. :D
Anyway, new question:
On my laptop before it crashed I had a datebook program that I downloaded. I had the free version, but I remember there was a 'Pro' version. I don't remember the name of it, but I'd like to get it again. I remember you could keep multiple accounts on it and if it was installed on several computers in your network, you could use it as a network chat program. You could change the colours on it and it had three tabs at the top: Appointments, Tasks, and maybe options?
Does anyone know what this program is called? Or do you know of a program like it?
how would you define TQC?
Am I the youngest member of TQC? I'm fifteen.
Have you ever had a paranormal experience? What happened?
I haven't :(
Need help with the name of an instrument:
I think it was made of steel, entirely. It was a silver box, laid on one's lap, and you played in by hitting these... (cutouts? I didn't see it up close) flat, metal, tapered "prongs" that seemed to be of various lengths, with your fingertips. It was played with both hands.
What is it?

Random Question: Have you ever been pregnant? Did you enjoy it?
Real Question: What kind of $10ish easter gift would you suggest? I would like to get her something for herself rather than the baby, she will get plenty of baby-gifts as the due-date gets closer, but I know by this time (4-5 months) her stomach is probably touchy and she can't drink alcohol and I know she's not doing caffiene...

Everyone is telling me that I should just put some distance between us, ignore her phone calls and try not to talk to her for a while. Should I just cut off communications with her?

1. I heard a pretty song on the radio last night and I would like to hear it again. It was Irish, but not blatantly so, and I think the DJ said the album was from the IRA...? Anyway, it was a solemn little song about this lady making her son try on her dead husband's suit. Yes. Any ideas who sang it?
2. How ridiculous is it that I still can't find a Wii at any local stores?
3. If you or someone you know has a Wii, how did you (or they) acquire it?
Please tell me the funniest plot to a porn you've seen?
Hannaford supermarkets had a security breach with visa (and i think mastercard or something) credit and debit cards. i have a visa debit card and i use it at Hannaford somewhat frequently. I don't keep very good track of my bank account, though there is only around $400 in it right now anyway.
Do you shop at Hannaford?
Have you used a credit or debit card there recently?
Am I asking to be fraud-ed?
Aside from watching my bank account for shady things, is there a way to find out if I'm being screwed?
*I tried googling but it just gave me a lot of news articles about the breach.

Am I having an identity crisis?
Your significant other goes ON and ON and ON about a particular book. As in, breaks up random conversations about completely unrelated topics to go on a long spiel about some minor subplot and how it's OH SO GODDAMN COOL. You're not really interested in it, and are noncommital/irritable/.
You naturally get annoyed, and eventually break down and point-blank tell your SO you don't care about that book and you're sick of hearing about it.
Their response? "Oh, really? Well gee, I feel really horrible now. I bought you the special leatherbound boxed edition specially signed by the author himself. It was really expensive. :("
Are you in the wrong for being so snappish? Are they in the wrong for not realizing that you weren't eager for a super-expensive version of it? Should you apologize?

If someone can answer this question for me, I've got to think of a serious way to repay them
I'm trying to remember the name of a really old Japanese horror movie. This is what I can remember.
It was B&W, the plot revolved around 2 kids who were trying to escape from this horrible old woman alien thing.
She had an odd-shaped mouth & breathed out this gaseous/foggy crap that killed anyone it touched. She also moved really oddly, was kind of hunched and had long black hair.
The ending came when it was discovered that she could be killed by using a fire extinguisher on her. Something about the contents being toxic to her.
I think the title was one word and started with a C.
How's that for vague?

When one runs out of underwear and the local laundromat isn't open late enough for one's schedule, is it more efficient to:
--Pump quarters into the laundry room with horribly inefficient in one's apartment complex for hours until everything is dry, or
--Go to Wal-Mart and buy a new pack to tide you over until you've got time to do laundry?
