Sean fucking Nelson (HARVEY DANGER!) sent me a friend request on Myspace and I'm like "OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG" because Harvey Danger has been my fav band since I was 8 years old. Yup, I got giddy over something on Myspace. -lame-
Mainly, I like: Fantasy-Adventure
I tend to be picky with what I choose, though. I like intelligent books (like Tolkien and T.H. White's "Once And Future King".) But I like the types of adventures found in Harry Potter and The Thief Lord and The Enchanted Forest Chronicles. If anything comes to mind please tell me the title/author and maybe a sentence or two on what it's about? And if you really feel like promoting, maybe say what you liked about it so much. But please, no spoilers about the books. =3 Thnxxx.
Whats holding you back from doing this?
Do you tend to make your own choices or are you more influenced by what others want you to do?
The handle that controls the water in the shower. Grats to my school for cutting costs when buying fixtures, etc.
What is with the fleeting, confused look I keep catching on this one guy's face for the past week (He shares an apartment with a friend)? It isn't from anything I've said.
Do you focus more on facial expressions or on hand gestures in conversations? facial expressions

2. Have you ever made a makeshift repair or fix for a problem in your house (or car, anything really) that is really really shabby, but works? What was it?
we got hit with a big rainstorm tonight, and the roof started leaking in the attic on the insulation. i cut up some drum liner trashbags, taped them to a window frame, and tossed them on the insulation. ghettoooo, but it works.

The Driving/Flying school in GTA San Andreas. Holy crap :/
if so what time does it get deposited?
its currently 3am and i still didnt get paid. the bank i used to be with sucked but they were great with my pay which would get deposited a few minutes after midnight. I wonder if i'll be up long enough to see it come up...
EDIT: for anyone that cares, i got paid at 3:45!! woot!
You get up, shake your fist at the cabbie and ask him if he saw you there and what is his problem.
Next thing you know, you are up on assault charges because the driver says you hit him and somehow, he has a fat lip and a small cut. The driver is claiming that you merely slipped on the ground and randomly got up and punched the crap out of the first taxi driver you saw, for no apparent reason. The HK cops and this taxi driver are corrupt enough to take you and your family for all it is worth. NO ONE saw the accident and if they did, it would actually not work in your favour that HE hit YOU bc then you would have cause to assault him.
You are also married with a 5 year old. You wife works here as well and your son goes to school here.
A) Stay and fight this with everything you had, at any cost, to prove your innocence?
B) Take a plea bargain, but this means you will have a criminal record for years to come and you truly did not do anything.
C) Flee HK at the first chance you have and never ever ever return?
D) Other suggestions?
If so, how was your trip?
If not, would you ever want to go there on vacation?
Is gift giving between siblings customary in such a situation? I can't seem to recall if I got anything from my siblings when I graduated.
If it is, then what should I get her?
Best you've received?
20 10-lb bags of white flour
3 full cases of refrigerated pop-roll biscuits
16 1-gal containers of chlorine bleach

In this scenario, you have a little 5-year old daughter. One night, you have plans with your SO and you can't find a babysitter. Your boss overhears your plight, and says, "My daughter could babysit. She could really use the money. She's good with kids. She's 22". Your boss is smiling, waiting for an answer. What is your answer?
For those of you who said yes, the doorbell rings, and your boss' daughter is there. She's heavily pierced and tattooed, and wearing a tube top and mini skirt. Her eyes are bloodshot. Her purse is in the shape of a Jack Daniels' bottle. You let her in, and she gushes over your daughter. "What a cutie she is. She's going to get laid a lot when she's older. Up to her cooter in boys and girls, I bet. Won't you, you little tart?" she says in a cooing, sincere voice. You're going to be gone for 4 hours. Do you entrust your daughter to this chick?
For those of you who left your child with the girl, you come home later to find that the boss' daughter gave your daughter a tattoo on the back of her neck. It says BITCH. "I know, totally hot, right? She's badass now. She's going to be the most sassy girl in her class now" Your daughter's longish hair covers it up. Your daughter seems happy with the ink job, but said it hurt a lot. What do you do?
I'll bet you can do better than they can! What would you give me on some gift-giving occasion?
Will you recommend me some summer jams?

If so, in what ways do you believe yourself to be ethical?

She still hasn't been able to take it off! And I'm sure she isn't going to. But she's acting all weird...she isn't walking, or seems to have an interest for anything. She just lies there. I have tried to play with her all morning but she doesn't want to :(
Has this happened to any of your cats? And did they get used to it? What worries me is that she's almost a year old, and it would have been easier to get used to it if I had done it when she was younger.
How about you guys up in the Upper Midwest?
For everyone else, what is something funny that has happened to you recently?
TQC, whose panties would you least want over your head?
My answer: Amy Winehouse. If her face is that pitted and unkempt, I can only imagine what her vag would be like. I might contract something, and besides, she might have a big beehive bush. I could choke on a pubic hairball
So I went to the doctor about my knee. He said it was something super long which abbreviated to ARPFS. Apparently its the main reason women are medically discharged from the military or something of the sort.
I know/think thats what he said because I wrote it down. However, when I googled it only PFS comes up, aka runners knee. I KNOW what he said started with an A though.
Any idea what I might have got wrong in translation?
(I tried calling the doctors office to have them pull the file but they're out to lunch and I have to leave for another appointment in a few minutes so its semi-important to figure it out now)

2. last night i was sifting through some of the old music my parents used to listen to from when they were in their 20s. i found gordon lightfoot (which i totally LOVE, lol) and a swiss yodeling album, as well as a bunch of old christian praise songs on vinyl. what strange/interesting discoveries have you made lately?

Inputting data from surveys into the database.
Earlier this month, I went to the community pool with my sister and realized I lost my bracelet there. We retraced our footsteps and everything. I went back to search the next day again...even went to the lost and found. Didn't find it. Just this past week, I visited a friend in LA...and he got me the same exact bracelet for me.
I already lied to my mom and sister that I was going to LA with my best friend, her aunt and boyfriend just to visit Southern Cal. But really, I went there myself to hang out with a male friend. My mom is really old-fashioned and is against me hanging out with guys. Unless she knows of them. She will flip out if she ever found out that I flew to CA to hang out with a guy. And I told her that the people I went with already did nice things for me during my trip...so if I said they got me a new bracelet, that will just make her suspicious.
My sister is another story. She's just really nosy...and I just want to avoid all questions she asks as much as possible...and by lying, I think would be the best case. As sad as that sounds.
*I can't say that it's fake because I'm allergic to most jewelry that aren't real. It's a name brand bracelet, too.*
What should I tell them where or how I found it? Or who got it for me?

If you have a friend who needs to learn how to be a better dog owner what would you do?
If this same friend has friends who treat their dog poorly, what would you do?
Examples would be they slap or threaten to hit or slap the dog if they don't sit down or if they don't stop play biting another's dog in the house. Two of these dogs have one back leg that is either broken or they just don't use that leg. And one of the dogs has some pink bubble thing the size of my pinky nail growing out of her eyelid, possibly the dog equivalent of a stye?
For instance, I came home and commented on a CD my grandmother had recieved in the mail, entitled "PARALYZED VETERANS PRESENT: MUSIC FOR THE FOURTH OF JULY". I'm one of the least patriotic people I know. I came into the computer room, and upon opening a giant chain e-mail she sent me containing The Pledge Of Allegiance decorated with 8 million red white and blue sparkly .gifs, loud patriotic marching band music began to blast from the kitchen CD player -- she apparently misread my mild curiosity as a strong desire to listen to said music.
I don't have the heart to tell her I'd rather listen to the sounds of someone simulataneously farting and scratching their nails on a chalkboard.
What is a movie you'd recommend? I don't have a preference or anything, but I'm pretty bored at the moment and would appreciate a good flick.
Thank youu :)
Does it seem like a lot of guys have a poor memory when it comes to things you've said?
And a lot of guys talk about themselves, but don't ask you a lot of questions about yourself?
It's not an I-hate-guys tirade but I've just noticed this.
so my mom hooked me up with a job babysitting one of her employee's kids tonight. i was just thinking of dressing up real professional to make a good impression, but i think that maybe they'd see through my ruse and be disappointed that i'm putting up a front. should i just go in my street clothes? or doll myself up some?
also, i'm bringing my tattoo inks and needles to show the kid. seems to impress the little ones when i tell them that i can do tattoos. good idea? or giving the wrong impression?

Also, I'm currently looking for a job in childcare (I'm majoring in early childhood education, though I don't have my degree yet). I've been sending out applications online, but my mother, frustrating busybody that she is, insists that if I'm not actually physically driving around to daycare centers and demanding applications to fill out in person, I'm not taking this job looking thing seriously. I feel weird about this because, number one, I don't know the locations of any local daycare centers, number two, I have no way to tell if those places are hiring, and number three, I feel like a place like that would be less likely to hire someone who walked in off the street than a place like a restaurant or store. Admittedly, I have no experience looking for "real, grown up" jobs, the kinds with salaries that require you to have a resume, so I could be wrong. Is she right, or am I right? Any advice on the job searching?
At a job fair today, I saw a lady wearing these crocs.
Also, do you think that the English language is degressing as a language because of this? Why or why not?
I don't think so, myself. But I'd like to know what other people think. : )
I do, but it's probably just because I'm bitter.
Edit: Only answer if you are single and get asked this all the time, LOL.
Ugh i have probably asked this before but i need this job so much. Thanks

In general: There was a super funny pic post a few days ago in TQC and I can't find it! There were a bunch of macros and one of them was a mail person fighting a dog, the dog somehow was wearing the person's shoes and one of the captions was "THEY DON'T EVEN FIT". Another macro was one of a political ad for Obama and one of it's captions read "His font got serifs and shit goddam". Can anyone link me to this post, or leave these macros for me in a comment?
Please and thank you.

TQC, Why don't they scare people around with chocolate? Do you think it's because chocolate is too profitable/delicious? Did you know that chocolate/cacao has a significant amount of cockroaches and rat droppings in it? That people who are allergic to chocolate could possibly be reacting to the cockroaches ground up in there?
I'm rather afraid of lasers. I almost fainted at the wheel because of it.
- a large purchase from a diamond dealer
- a big screen television from Ebay
- a huge order of gifts from some national florist chain
- 6 bottles of dom perignon from an online liquor store
- a bunch of stuff from a local thrift store (the only strangely small charge, and it was in our city)
I'm inclined to think that with "professional" CC# thieves they're vastly more interested in slowly draining cash out of your account with random "fees" from seemingly innocuous services rather than having multiple bottles of champagne, that this was instead some idiot working at a store we went to that thought it would be a brilliant idea to steal a customer's number try and buy several items that would all trigger a fraud alert all at once.
For this reason I'm thinking it's less likely that she used a non-secure site and more likely that it was an idiot cashier at the grocery store or something. What do you think?
2. Have you ever been a victim of CC fraud or identity theft yourself? How did it turn out?
