I'm tired, I'm bored, I'm sick of cleaning up post-tornado mess, and I may not have work tomorrow, too, because the office still doesn't have power.

Who (famous or otherwise) gets you going? Who do you drool over? Who do you consider so incredibly, jump-worthy hot?

Bonus points if you post pictures. I need some pretty to look at.

1) Where do you work?
2) What kind of credentials did you need to get the job?
3) How much money do you make?
4) Do you think you should get paid more/less than you do, or is your wage/salary pretty fair?
5) Do you consider this a "job" or your "career?"

I work in tele-Customer Service (it's a job, definitly not a career). I make $12 (CDN) hour. My wage is pretty fair, as it's only usually busy on Friday or Saturday nights. And when it's not busy, I sit at my desk and wait for calls- so they're pretty much paying me to colour and read. Score!

I love my daugher like I love my new lipstick

who here has seen the Walmart commercial where the woman goes around calling everything beautiful, her lip stick, her daughter, her bath, and at last, her grocery receipt....from Walmart?

Does anybody else wonder how low her perception of beautiful must be when she calls her daughter and a receipt beautiful in the same breathless thoughtful way?

Seriously though, why do you think she just keeps on popping out those babies?

I think she likes the fame and notoriety associated with being freakish like that.

Whats the worst date you have been on?

Mine-  First, he started out talking about love... and I mean, the type of talk that would freak out even someone who was totally romantic and into talking about love. Then he said how he doesn't care about his ex girlfriend but he proceeded to talk about her for the next 20 mins. Then he sat there and told me how I was going to be a bad mom and how God is going to send me to hell because I have a tattoo. Then he told me I was ignorant because I said I didn't want to talk about religion anymore. Then he said I'm confused about relgion and I needed to be more open minded. Then he said he can't hangout with me because I don't go to church. And he kept talking to me and telling me I wouldn't understand, or I wouldn't get what he was saying. THEN he said, 'let me see your tattoo? Oh, yeah, it looks really cheap'. I was in shock. I really was. Oh and after this was all over he said, so do you want to go out again?

So yeah, whats the worst date you've been on?

It's not that unusual that I'll say something like "This is why God invented elevators" because I'm just wonky that way. It's kind of a roundabout thing, for those that buy into the logic that God made everything or that God made us and we made things but ultimate God takes credit.

So, what're you most thankful for God inventing?

whenever i go out to eat, i always get a salad with ranch dressing, because the ranch dressing that basically all restaurants use is SO GOOD. i want to start eating more salads at home but i can't stand the crap that comes in a bottle, it tastes horrible. i've tried all types and brands, but none of them even come close. so i want to start making my own.

Solid sesame oil

I never used to refrigerate sesame oil, but I recently heard that you're supposed to. So after I used a bit out of a new bottle, I stuck it in the fridge. About a week later, I took it out to use it again, and it was solid...

I let it sit out for a while, but was too scared to use it and ended up tossing it out.

Is that normal? Does anybody know what happened? Did it become hydrogenated? That's bad, right?

what do you think of the religious folks that come door to door to "spread the word of Christ" (as they called it today)?

do you ever mess with them? in what ways?


i had 2 boys come around this afternoon. i usually will just ignore the knocking and they keep on their merry little way. but today i decided to open the door (mostly for the break from studying for finals). i am not religious. i have no problem with other people being religious, as long as they don't try to press it on me (my best friend is going to school to be a pastor). but these guys today were just terrible. their minds couldn't fathom why i didn't believe that there is some god and what not. i humored them for about 5 minutes before i said "well, good luck with converting, but i'm not going to, so have a nice day!"

i use to joke with friends back in high school that i would get two dogs, name them satan and jesus and tell the religious wanderers that satan and jesus are in the back yard playing and that they're best friends!

1 You've suddenly acquired a team of invisible scriptwriters, who'll telepathically ensure that you'll never be at a loss for words in any situation. You get the words automatically, no need to rehearse! You just open your mouth and out they come.

Which tv show do you want to steal your team from? Any show, whether it's still on air or long gone. Would you want them to write you like a particular character, or just with the general feel of the show?

So, some time ago a question was asked about biofuels and most of you were against them. I was rather surprised and started wondering, what alternatives do you think to them? Because fossile fuels do not last forever, even if they didn't contribute to global warming (which I'm pretty sure they do, considering carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas and we release a lot of it when using fossile fuels). They will run out eventually.
So if not biofuels, what then?

Question after reading something for History...

Does someone have to speak English to be British*? In other words, can someone be considered British without speaking/knowing the language?


*The same argument goes for other English (official) speaking countries or speaking French in France etc.

I removed America because I guess if there's no official language, it's a bit different.


I just was reading something for history: "You can be British without speaking English or being Christian or being white". I agreed with the last two points, but not the first, personally.

edit: I forgot about Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales as I was thinking of England (as I call myself British even though I'm mainly English).

Anyway, to rephrase the question...
Can someone be English if they don't speak English?
Can someone be Scottish if they don't speak Scottish *or* English (as it's one of the official languages for Br)?
Ditto Welsh
Ditto N. Ireland

Nail Problem

On my left hand, pinky finger, at the base of my nail its all white and flaky, and after that there is a big noticable bump coming from underneath the nail. The rest of the nail is fine, but it has been growing out and progessing from just a bit of whiteness to the bump... then the bump has gotten bigger. I've searched online but only found two things talking about a 'bump' or 'lump' in the nail, and nobody gave them any good answers about it.

Does anybody know what this is and whether its serious or I should just let it grow out and see what happens. Its only the one nail all my others are fine.

If you could reorchestrate (change the music to) a movie, what would it be?

I always wondered what "Harlold and Maude" would be like with Ben Kweller's music. I don't know why I associate the two.

How come I feel so lonely when you're up gettin' down?

I will be happy if you get this song reference.

    Do you live in a city with a river in it?

I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon which has sort of given me the impression that all cities have a river running through the middle of them.  And then I lived in New York, and then Dublin, so the observation stands.

have any of you ever fed your dogs or cats with homemade food? my kitten hates cat food and will rarely eat it. sometimes she'll have some dry food, but that's about it. she absolutely goes crazy for chicken though, so i thought homemade food would be the best way to go. does anyone have any good recipes for homemade kitten food?

TQC, can I hear your weird/freaky dream/nightmare stories?


My friend has a reoccuring dream, for the past 15 years or so, that she is sitting on a bench in her local town centre and a woman walks past her all dressed in black, pushing a black pram. She has a black bonnet on and the pram is a Victorian-style one. She doesn't know why, but as soon as the woman appears in the dream she feels absolutely bone-chillingly terrified, to the point where all she can do is sit and stare at the woman walking past her in silent horror. She wakes up still terrified after every dream.

What do you do when you're feeling incompetent?

I kind of fucked myself over and didn't apply to any summer jobs/internships until now and I had an interview scheduled for tomorrow for an internship at Lucky magazine. The lady emailed me today saying that they hired an employee's cousin for the position. Now I'm shit out of luck.

I'm a sophomore at a pretty decent university and this experience is getting me worried. I can't even get a summer job what's going to happen when I actually graduate? I applied to a couple more internships today, but I feel like shit. :\


Also, this is a stretch, but... what is that website that you input an address like for NYC, and it tells you exactly what subway lines to take, etcetc?

I was at my great gram's house and I found a jar of pickles in her fridge from 1998. Then I went through and found two tubs of cream cheese from 2005. There were seven other jars of pickles in the fridge (Lime and tabasco flavoured, wtf?) all from at least two years ago.

What is the oldest thing you've ever found in a fridge?
Whose fridge was it?

I got my gramma to try at least four of the different expired pickles since she claimed that they were good for pretty much ever. All were met with spitting and tossing of the jars.

Have you ever gotten anyone to try the expired food?

Have you ever had chunky milk?

So, I got an internship!  I'm going to be working at a billing facility starting in June.

I'm composing an email to send to my supervisor (who I've never met--I didn't have a personal interview).  I hate to sound like a fat girl, but I'm really curious as to what their lunch facilities are like.  I've never worked in an office before.  I've been a server my whole life--my entire job has revolved around eating.  I have no idea what eating at a place that isn't first and foremost a kitchen.  Would it be appropriate to ask her in this email what their break room facilities are like, or should I just bring a Clif bar on my first day and figure it out when I get there?
