what success have you had with buying phones online and then getting your number on them?
does anyone with sprint know if it would cost anything to do this? or would it be totally free (aside from the price of the phone, obviously)? i dont have an upgrade for another year and my phone is totally shitty.
EDIT: my phone, in samsung's infinite wisdom, does not have a sim card. at least...i dont think it does. sooo...id have to go to sprint and do all that stuff. does this complicate the situation?
my sister got a perm back in the day... like 1992? it was really bad. i was wondering, in this day and age are perms better than they were? look more natural, etc?

anyone else excited for the max payne movie?
What should I be for Halloween?
I only ask because I'm really into using the valley girl voice lately and am wanting a creative costume other than cheerleader.
I have hairy armpits and people were looking at me funny today when I was wearing a tank top at the store. I've just been busy, ya know. I can't shave them everyday. Well, I don't feel so bad - it was just Wal Mart. Hairy armpit people shop there, right?
What do you think of hairy armpits on ladies?
If you were making an item of clothing by commission for a friend, how much would you charge apart from the cost of materials? Would you charge a lump sum or by the hour?
I just posted this in my journal, but now I want to know what you think. I'm starving and have NO FOOD. All I can do is think about food. So I want to know, what would you like to be eating right now? I posted a huge list in my journal but i'm just going to list a few things here:
spaghetti and tomato sauce
tomato sandwich on toast
baguette with olive oil and balsamic vinegar
tomatoes with fresh mozarella and basil and olive oil
green curry with rice

I'm watching Parental Control right now. I don't understand how they can watch their boyfriends/girlfriends out with someone else. There's no way in hell I'd be able to sit there and watch my SO explore his options right in front of my face. My heart would probably stop.
How would you feel if you had to watch your SO on a date with someone else?
What parts of your body do you shave?
Do you have something you need to get off of your chest?
My school is in session on Christmas Eve. Just for a half a day (we get out at noon), but it still is enough to ruin my travel plans for the holiday. :-(
So I'm going to spend my first Christmas ever alone.
I don't want to take off because I only get 6 days per year, it would count as a full day of personal leave, and I'm paranoid about getting sick and/or needing a mental health day.
Who wants to celebrate Christmas with me? We could exchange gifts, make hot chocolate (with Peppermint Schnapps), and curl up with White Christmas, A Christmas Story, and any other Christmas movies.
EDIT: This was totally meant for my personal journal, but I wouldn't mind making some new friends for Christmas too. :-)
is anything frustrating you right now? (bonus points if it's really insignificant but bothering you anyways!)
for me: i totally just propositioned my boyfriend for sex this morning, but he opted to go to class instead. who chooses class over morning sex?!

1.) Should I have a piece of whole wheat toast with my oatmeal, or is that too many carbs?
2.) The library emailed me a notice that a book I checked out is overdue. TQC, I'm sure I turned this book in and after searching my apartment I haven't found it anywhere :x
WHERE IS THIS BOOK??
Has this ever happened to you?
Do libraries make mistakes like this?
Holy crap. A coworker of mine has to drive ~50miles to get here at work. This morning, about 30 miles away, a Ford F250 started to make a lane change right on top of him, so he honked to get the dude's attention.
Apparently that made the Ford driver sooooo angry that he stayed on his ass for the next 30 miles, making lane changes every time my coworker did, and then shooting across 4 lanes of traffic when my coworker got off the highway. My coworker ended up cutting a light very close (pretty much running it red) to finally get away.
Do you have any experience with road rage?
If you mistake keria knitelgy for natalie portman,
clay aiken for KD lang,
and sarah jessica parker for a horse,
does that make you an animal abusing, homophobic racist?
The little yellow "your gas tank is almost empty" light just went on in my car.
How far do you think I can drive before my tank is actually empty?
Anyone wanna place a bet?
I have a job interview today. It is for Boost Juice bars (I assume they are in America and the UK too?) So I have to appear all bubbly and vacuous. How can I achieve this?
My supervisor just asked me to be the "buddy" to this girl who has been sick and missed 2/3 of the classes this semester. However, I'm supposed to have "no responsibility", just meet with her for half an hour a day and help her learn a foreign language using the (crappy) textbook, because she can't do it on her own.
Does this sound suspiciously like she is trying to push the responsibility of being a teacher on me? I am not faculty and I am not trained in pedagogy, but how am I supposed to ensure someone is learning a foreign language without acting like a teacher?
do you have netflix?
if so, will you post the next 10 movies in your queue?
if not, have you considered joining?
what do you eat when you want to fill up but not eat a tone of calories? I need things to much on at work cuz I want to snack constantly
A) Meet a friend for coffee/shopping at 11?
B) Go out with my boyfriend on the Harley at noon?
It's rather cold out today, so on the bike I would have to bundle up. Also, my boyfriend always makes bike rides a 3-4 hour adventure. I'm not sure I want to be out that long.
If I go with my friend she will probably have to be home by 3 to meet her kids at the school bus, so I would come home and have to wait in extreme boredom for my boyfriend to return.

1. Do I want sweet and sour chicken or yellow curry for dinner? (there's usually much more curry, it's about the same price, but two different restaurants).
2. My roommate has gone home until January - checked out, took all her stuff with her, now I have half a room that has ... nothing in it, it's barren. What do I do to make it look happier on the other side of the room? D: Who wants to move in with meeeeeeeee?

Last night I got a call from a number I didn't recognize, so I let it go to voicemail, like I do. Turned out to be a woman from our local community college trying to call Ryan (who is most definitely not at this number) to cancel his bartending class. It was very much a this-is-the-only-notification-you're-getting kind of call.
Would you have called her back? If not, is there a different circumstance under which you would have?
1:Are you a loyal costumer to certain brands?
2:If yes, what are are they and why?
3: How did you sleep last night?

What does it mean when you have a nightmare where you've moved out of your apartment, but nobody told the new residents that they need to put a towel down by the toilet to soak up the slow leak that the landlord is too busy to fix, and a week later the slow leak turns into a puddle a foot wide and gets the rug by the sink wet?
In 1929, people panicked due to an economic crisis by withdrawing all of their money from banks and hiding it under their respective mattresses. In 2008, how should one go about panicking over an economic crisis?

I just learned that Soma, a muscle-relaxing drug, when combined with hydrocodone, produces a heroin-like high. Also, those who take Tagamet with crack prolong their high by inhibiting their liver from metabolizing the crack.

If all of a sudden, a TV show manifested itself as not only real life, but YOUR real life, and every aspect of that show enveloped you (your job, your social life, etc.), what TV show would it be?
For me it'd totally be the West Wing so I could have an important job in the White House and bone Josh Lyman. Oh, and Josiah Bartlet would be president, so we probably wouldn't be in this economic downfall, since he won a ~Nobel Prize~ in economics. And he would be followed in his presidency by Matt Santos, who pretty much is Barack Obama.

We were warned that in ten minutes electricity in our office will be turned of for an hour and a half. So, once it is on, it will be thirty minutes till the end of work-day. IF they will turn in on right on time - a very unlikely case.
And, it is Friday here. And I'm programmer, so there'll be nothing for me to do.
So, in this situation, would you stay at work - where you have nothing to do, or just beg off to go home?
1. They were late turning power off by 7 minutes.
2. And they've already turned it on. While most of us were just leaving.
The main question now is: will they turn it off again?
Some of my friends are taking a Logic and Argumentation class and they keep trying to identify different types of fallacies, but I don't know a damn thing about it.
Yesterday some guy was describing a fundraiser for the women's volleyball team where they will go be servers at a fancy bar and get big fat tips, and also create (as a team, I guess?) their own entree and dessert and keep all the proceeds from that.
I don't know if this is common, but I had never heard of it and I said "I don't know, that seems kind of demeaning." His response was "I'm a career server and bartender, and I'm a guy, so I don't think it's sexist at all."
Was he making a logical fallacy? Was I? (I wasn't even making an argument, so I doubt it.) What kind?

In class yesterday a guy said that "guys like it when girls wear pigtails". He was saying it like a generalization at first, then added "or maybe I'm just special."
So I was curious to ask, (straight) guys, do you like it when the opposite sex wears pigtails? If yes, is it cute? Or sexy? Or what?
Girls, do you ever where pigtails? If you don't, how would you feel wearing pigtails?
Please state your gender when you comment.
I'm a female, I don't wear pigtails and I would feel absolutely ridiculous if I did.

What's the most ridiculous thing you've heard lately? it can be ridiculously funny or ridiculously stupid.
My boyfriend's genius plan was to live without electricity for a day. When I explained that this would mean he could not use running water of any sort (especially the toilet), as the city pumps the water to his house (and can't do so without electricity), he responds:
"Seriously? I thought my toilet was hydraulic or something."
TQC, help! I'm in small-town GA with no internets. Will you post URLs for your favorite mobile web versions of websites? I need a distraction from mutant bugs and babytalk.
1. what's usually the first emotion you feel when you wake up?

What's the kinkiest thing you can thing of? (omitting bodily excrements/fluids PLEASE)
What's your kink?
eta: lol, back to back kinky posts are just a coincidence
What's so wrong with wanting to be a ~special snowflake~?
ETA: Do you think humans have an inherent need to feel special?
What makes you special?
1. Do you ever find yourself, at home, doing something very mundane (like making the bed, or making a cup of tea) and in your head you are commentating it like it was a sport, or narrating it like how-to instructions?
2. I have a new kitten who is very gassy, his belly gets quite swollen after he eats and his farts could fell a flock of wildebeest. He doesn't have worms, giardia or that other coccy-somethingorother they test for. I gave him different dry food two days ago, and different wet kitten food than usual today. No change. He's gaining weight and otherwise seems perfectly fine except for being a bit loose in the litterbox. He eats like a hungry dog, can clean his plate faster than, well, something really fast. Is the bloating just due to that, can I hope? And will he get over it?
Seriously, this cat stinks.
3. If you could magically gather all the required ingredients instantly, what would you make for dinner?
4. By a happy accident, I have two sets of hospital restraints here. What should I do with them?
how are the gas prices in your area right now?
I was excited to see gas in one area of town go down from $3.29 to $3.15 overnight, but when I drove back home to my side of town it was $3.58. wtf.
YAY. We finally hit 10k.
Are you happy?
Do you think that took way too long?
What is your favorite jello shot recipe?
TQC, which one should I buy? A Sidekick or an iPod?
I already have an iPod, but it's an old first-generation 1 GB iPod nano. I was going to get one the 16 GB new iPod nanos that are $199, that have the accelerometer that shuffles it when you shake it...mainly because I need more space on my iPod. 1 GB is nothing! I don't listen to the iPod very often, just when I'm on the subway going to class and other random moments. My subway ride to school is only 15 minutes each way.
And I currently have a Motorola RIZR from T-Mobile, but it has the traditional T9 keypad and I text a lot -- a LOT! -- and I also would like to get the web on my phone, which would only increase my phone bill by $5 a month. The Sidekick will cost me between $250-299, plus I think I have to pay an upgrade fee of like $21.
I can afford one or the other, but not both. Also, I will be able to afford the other one by February at the latest. My fiance and my younger sister say I should get the Sidekick, and I'm kind of leaning towards it. Which one would you get?
So, okay. ABC has made a remake of Life on Mars. How do you feel about this? Do you even know what I'm talking about?
I loved the British version, and I'm not entirely sure about a US remake. Hmmm.
I'm drinking beer right now. Are you?
Nom nom beer nom.
