I know a guy whose nickname is Mally, based on his last name, and whenever people say anything about him I think they're saying my name. Which is Melanie.

Should I go upstairs and wait for the insomniac who is secretly my lover in my heart to talk to me, or watch Everything is Illuminated and cuddle with my puppy on the couch?
How effing awesome would it be to have an actual lightsaber? Star Wars tech excited the piss out of me.
Or rather, what the fuck is wrong with my dog?:
-He's been hallucinating (running and biting and random things that aren't there, barking suddenly at familiar objects). My dad and I thought maybe he thought the hair by his eyes was bugs, but we trimmed the hair off and he's still doing it.
-He's always watched television very intensely and can tell when there's animals on the screen, so I don't think it's his vision.
-His temperature is normal, as are his eating habits.
-He started doing this about 2 weeks ago, and he's doing it more frequently.
My dad is going to take him to the vet Sunday.

mine: the reunion kiss between Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhall in Brokeback Mountain because it was so passionate and sexy and I don't think I've ever had a kiss like that in real life.
I love buying jeans. They're already worn in and soft. Plus, I wear jeans all the time, so they wear out quick and get expensive to replace.

It is 80 degrees out (and rising) with 77% humidity.
I am home alone for the weekend and I want to BAKE.
Should I walk up the street (about a half a mile) in this gross humidity to Walgreens to get some butter and chocolate chips so I can make cookies? Or should I say "fuck this, it's hot out" and not bother and try to find something else to do?

I'm trying to familiarize myself with resumes, because I want to have mine updated and ready for my job search today. I figured I'd ask for personal opinions because Google's examples aren't really answering my question. Granted, I'm only looking for a part time job that'll fill my time between what I really do, but I've been asked for a resume for part time jobs a few times before and have never been prepared. Problem though... I'm not too sure how to make my setup look clean and professional. Any suggestions or opinions?

Has living with my two smoker parents for the last twenty years killed my lungs?!
If you live with people who smoke, but you don't smoke yourself, how the hell do you deal with it? I pretty much stay in my room most of the time, with my door closed, an air purifier on and the windows open.
2) I need to do a research project for my English class later this year. I haven't really gotten information on it yet but I need to find an author. Who do you think is an interesting American author / has written interesting books (such as Ernest Hemingway)?
This is the fifth (yes, the fifth) time I have gone down to ask him to turn it down in the last couple months. I can hear it above my TV. His arguments are that he paid $3,000 for his TV sound system and since it's only lunchtime, he doesn't have to be quiet (noise ordinance is 10pm to 7am). He asked if I'm going to come complain to him every time his TV is too loud (uh, obviously). I've gone to the apartment office once about this, but with the hurricane, they're closed, so I'll have to wait until they open in a few days to say anything to them again.
So TQC, do I have any other options? I mean, after having gone to him five times to complain, once to the office (soon to be twice), what else can I do? My lease isn't up until the end of January, so I have a few more months of having to deal with this ass-hat. Is that my only option? I dread coming home after work because I don't want to have to deal with his loud TV. I deal with loud students all day. I just want some peace and quiet while I grade and whatnot. :( I try to be as courteous to my neighbors as possible. I don't even get quiet on the weekends. What would you do?
My dad said I should get an air horn and blare it at him the next time I have to go down there.
Today is my little cousin's 6th birthday and I have no clue what to buy him. He loves the Disney Princesses,(especially Ariel), Webkinz, and putting on plays. He has a little sister, so he already has tons of stuff in his house related to princesses and I bought him a Webkinz last year.
What would be a good gift for a 6 year old boy? He seems to like arts stuff and building with blocks, as well.

WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSION?
Do you greet everyone you recognize even if you've never had a conversation, or only people you've briefly talked to at some point in passing, or only people who you've definitely had a few conversations with and would expect them to know you?
For example, in the context of college, I feel like it would be weird and borderline creepy to greet people who you've never talked to but you recognize because they're in one of your classes. Because it's like, "I have no reason to know you since we've never talked, but I spend time watching you without you knowing and so I can pick you out of a crowd." But I'm wondering if other people are the same way about this. By the way, I don't mean I'd feel creeped out if someone greeted me that way, but I just personally refrain from doing so.
--Relatedly, how do you deal with the awkward situation in which you don't know if you know someone well enough to say anything to them if you see them?

Four weekends ago, she did something very horrible, she completely betrayed me, lied about it, had her other children hide it, and went against my wishes and did something she knew I did not want her to do. It's not something small either, this was a huge deal. She dropped off my kids Sunday and I called her after she left and left a scathing message on her home phone. I went on and on and said some pretty harsh things, but things I refuse to apologize for because they needed to be said.
She hasn't called or come here since. This is really unlike her because she always comes on Sundays. I sent a message to her daughter (16 yrs old) through Facebook about seeing my kids again and she deleted me right away. My kids love her and I think they would like to see her...Do I suck it up and call her or wait for her?

Red Cross Disaster Relief (and other sectors)
makeachildsmile.org - you make cards/send toys/letters/whatever to sick children & their families
MusicSavesLives - an organization designed to raise awareness about blood donation & the National Bone Marrow registry through connecting bands and their fans
Do you know of any others?

Does your city have a 'show' which is like an exhibition/competition of arts and crafts, various new products etc, plus carnival/rides/demonstrations of various things/performers, plus animal competitions (best of breed etc), that pretty much everyone goes to to see?

1. I'm going to a Mormon church service tomorrow because my friend/roommate is obsessed with the Bishop (he is also a professor of art at our college) and the service goes from 9 to 12. Three hours seems like a long time to me, is the whole time taken up buy a sermon or will multiple things be going on?

january of 07 i ran away to maui, hawaii. i bought a ticket, packed my shit, and left in the middle of the night. i left a note for my mom telling her i went to the beach to deal with my depression and that i'd be back soon. i was gone for three weeks. when i came back, so many things changed in my life, for the better.

I donated blood for the 3rd time ever today. When I took my gauze off, I saw what I think are two puncture marks. I closed my eyes when the technician put the needle in and took it out like I do every time. I haven't noticed TWO puncture marks before.
TQC, without showing pictures of the procedure, can you explain why I have two puncture marks? The punctures go down my arm. I don't think she pricked me twice.
Recently I had deep fried cheesecake, deep fried oreos, deep fried twinkie, and deep fried artichoke hearts. And they were all amazing.

I typed 20 pages of a 175 page school project and my computer shut down and I had to retype all of them.
TQC, what is this thing?
ETA: this is more leaning towards drinking and drugs. It really strikes me odd that people think you need to get drunk or do drugs to know they are not for you. I'm really very curious about this.
What did you think of it?
-live the rest of your life exactly like you are now. nothing around you ever ages or changes. you'll always be the age you are, in the time you are. seasons will pass but nothing and no one will ever change. you'll keep going on with your life, your job, your friends, you may meet new people but you'll never get promoted, get married, go back to school/finish school. you don't know this is going on and it will never occur to you. it'll be like yesterday, today and tomorrow for decades.

Anyway, today I visited her and she was just sitting in her room staring in space. The first thing she said to me was "I'm miserable. I don't know why I'm still here. I don't want to be here. My husband is gone; my daughter is gone. She died of throat cancer. I told her to stop smoking so much but she couldn't stop. At least she's happy now. She was in so much pain." So I kept her company and she talked to me about her life. I learned that she had a passion for fishing and that she met her husband that way. I asked her if she still went fishing and she said that no one takes her. I was like, "I can take you!" I really do want to do something for/with her. Like take her somewhere. I asked her if I can visit her sometime and her eyes lighted up and she seemed thrilled that I said that.
Maybe fishing with her wouldn't work 'cause I don't even have equipment and she has a walker and it might be dangerous. What should I do with her? I want to take her somewhere to make her feel appreciated. Please give me some ideas. Thanks.

Have you ever had any problems with Amazon/any website?
Someone filed a claim against me a few days BEFORE she was supposed to get her book. I know she got my book and Amazon held the money from my account...motherfuckers. Now I get delivery confirmation when I'm selling stuff.

(c/p from my comment in the last 'what did you dreamed about last night' post)
Adam from Mythbusters was kidnapped by Nazis and I had to save him. I traveled down through elaborate underground tunnels to save him. I was captured by Draco Malfoy, who was dressed in weird tribal clothes. He said that if I guessed 3 questions right he would let me go, but if I got them wrong I would become his slave. I got the questions wrong (I don't remember what they were) and he was about to make me his slave (some sort of weird sexual ritual) when something I don't remember happened and it turned out that the Mythbusters were behind the whole thing anyway.
TQC, what is my subconscious trying to tell me? I don't even like Draco!
