NEW QUESTION: last night i had a dream that i was part of a feel-good movie about people conquering societal norms. it was about a young boy who wanted to play softball on a girls' team. i was one of the extras in the stands. after the game thing, it turned into a zombie movie thing, and michael ian black as a zombie creature chased me through a treehouse filled with rope nets.

what was the last really really really strange dream that you had?

let's say you have straight hair. you find a curly strand. if that curly strand of hair gets pulled out or falls out, will it always grow back in curly?

edit: another question..my mom used to make me search for her gray hairs so she could dye them. haha. she has typical straight asian hair, but her gray hairs were always really, really thick and curly. why?

How do people become e-famous?

Like, seriously. You see these girls on the internet who are only slightly pretty with about 25,000 myspace friends or something. How do they get like that? What types of people become e-famous? Do they make themselves popular on the internet, or do people just flock to them?

I'm going to write a paper on it for my psychology class, so any info or comments that you can give me at all would be appreciated!

And also, I need a new laptop. Which do you prefer - mac or PC? And why?

Weekend Football


Saturday was pretty much spent bbq'ing and watching football all day...and it was a good day for it, too. Every team I was pulling for won...most of them handedly.

Alabama slaughtered Arkasas.
Florida thoroughly raped Tennessee.
Clemson over SC State....WOAH!!
LSU/Auburn was the "best" game in that it was the most exciting...and the fact that I was the only person out of about 12 at the party who was pulling for LSU over Auburn. (Therefore, after the game I had to taunt them all...just a little. wink.gif )

What was your game for the weekend? Did your guys pull it off?

How much is too much?

TQC, I have a dilemma.  I recently found out how much my boyfriend's annual salary is.  It is several multiples of mine.

He has been burned before by women who were only with him for his money.  I am firmly in love with him, long before I found out how much he made.  He does not live like he makes that much.

Now this information is bothering me.  I have been told that I am being silly for letting it bother me.  But now I am wondering if I will be able to separate the man from his money in my mind, because I am very materialistic. 

How much of a disparity in annual earnings would you feel comfortable with?  Would you start to wonder why the higher earner is even bothering with the other person?

Am I being silly?

Last night I went to my friend's birthday dinner. One of the guests there was this guy who pretty much embodies all the qualities I like in a guy. We talked a lot, and there was indeed some flirting.

Then I found out that this guy is my friend's ex-boyfriend. They are still pretty good friends.

Should I pursue said guy or is there some unspoken rule that I'm not allowed to touch him?

Note: my friend currently has a boyfriend that she seems to like very much.

Ugh, help me TQC! :(
Grrrr!  Arrrr!

And yes, I made her clean the bathtub last night.

Yesterday I found out that my roommate, in her nearly 23 years of life, had never once cleaned a bathtub. I say this is extremely weird, she says it's not at all weird. Who is right TQC?

What is even weirder is that she and I have lived in a house together for three years now and I found this out yesterday. How did she manage to scam me into always being the one who cleaned the bathroom for three years? Why did I not notice that?!

How was your weekend? What sort of exciting adventures did you get up to? Any pictures you want to show off?

How do you all feel about the Troy Anthony Davis case that's happening in my lovely state?

If you don't care, how's your Monday been so far?

For those of you not in the know: he was convicted of killing a cop 15 years ago and he's been on death row ever since, set to be executed this week. However, all but two of the witnesses have since recanted their testimonies, saying they were coerced, and many have implicated another guy in the murder. And in addition to that, there was never any physical evidence or even a murder weapon. THE POPE has asked Georgia to hold off on the execution, and now Al Sharpton's all up on it.

good thing giant purses are in style.

What things do you carry in your purse everyday for "just in case" even though you rarely need it?
nail clippers, tweezers, pill case with multiple different pills, diaper and travel wipes in case i forget the diaper bag, moist towelettes, tampons, condoms, hairbrush, zone bars in case i or my kid gets randomly hungry, a 20 in my wallet that i don't touch for emergencies

What SHOULD you carry for just in case but haven't gotten around to it?
i used to carry coffee singles for just in case but i went through them and didn't replace them but they sure would have come in handy today. i also always thing i should carry a back up pair of undies and socks for just in case but maybe i'm just weird.

Dear TQC, what does a written work reference look like? I didn't get one when I left my first job because I was all shy and intimidated and the new manager didn't like me. It's been several years now so i can't just call up and request one, they wouldn't even remember me. And my other jobs were more self-directed type things, and volunteer stuff.

Can you write me a reference? It was for working at a pizza place for eight months, primarily on the phone. I have a job interview tomorrow where I need to bring 2-3 work related references :S

When you pawn something, how do they figure out what to pay you for it? Is there a set percentage? Let's say something's worth $250 new, you pawn is slightly used; are they automatically only going to give you, say, a fourth of that? A third?

I don't know, I've never pawned anything before and I want to be prepared if they're going to give me a shockingly low price.

In a similar vein: Have you ever really need cash and pawned something? What'd you pawn? What'd you get for it?

Exercise

Does anyone here use Nike+? I've been working out a lot lately and think this would help me track my distances and calories and all that. Do you like it? What else can you tell me?

If you don't care, say some hurtful words to make me stay on my healthy pattern of better food choices and exercise. I am down 45lbs and want to lose some more!

a. Fuggetaboutit! (and have it possibly come back to bite me in the ass later)
b. Go down to the court house and have get it sorted out.

I'm leaning more towards b, but I don't know. I have until 10/28/08 to appear.

Also, I heard that if I try to request traffic school it will be denied because I was way over speeding (73 in a 45). Is this true?
