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?
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?
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 garlic bread baguette with olive oil and balsamic vinegar spider roll sunomono salad tomatoes with fresh mozarella and basil and olive oil green curry with rice
ok i know you're all bored so what better way to spend your thursday night than HELPING ME? i have a quiz tomorrow and i'm stupid and can't figure this out:
what would be the common denominator between those two and how do i get it on each side?! because you can't just add things to each side, right, you have to multiply them? ugh i feel so dumb right now, this should be so simple. that's what i get for not taking math since sophomore year of high school. D:
if you're inept like me (or spiteful or annoyed or w/e), what was your favorite class in high school?
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?
I'm thinking about getting one of those tattoos that travels up your back/ribs. What are some of the best/worse ones you've seen of this kind of tattoo? Do you have the morning/afternoon/all day case of the bitchies? What's something you find really sexy that not a lot of people do? Ex: My friend of mine is incredibly attracted to people who love chemistry and physics.
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.

For $40,000, would you tattoo pubic hair on your crotch area? A big, shaggy, patchlike murkin around your genitalia, extending just outside your bikini line. Considering where it is, it'll probably hurt to have it done and hurt a lot to have it removed later (if you want to do that)
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?
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?
Assume that you're at a cliffside and somehow, the two people I list are dangling off the cliff, about to fall. You can only save one of them. Yes, you are strong enough to lift them, yes, they will live, but only the person you save: eventually the other party will fall, and it is unlikely they will survive the fall. Your only other option is to walk away from them both: it's one or nothing. No loopholes.
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?
Ladies, for $500,000, would you tattoo hair on your chest? Patches of hair in your cleavage, on your nipples, around your collarbone, etc. When you're done with the poll, comment with how hairy and rich you are now
My grandmother just sent out an email exclaiming that if Barack Obama gets elected presidenthe will bring the kind of change Castro and Hitler did, and we will be SORRY!!!!!!
What was the last thing someone said that when you thought about it, you really questioned their sanity? What are you having/did you have for lunch? I am going to a wedding this weekend, what should I do with my hair?
Where can I buy cute laptop bags from?? I've had a look on ebay and etsy, but would the etsy homemade ones be hard wearing enough (I'm rather clumsy)? Preferrably companies based in, or willing to ship to, the UK.
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.
are there any TQC regulars whose names you constantly misread, misspell, or associate with something indirect?
for instance, i always read physidork as "physiodork", and i used to think photogfrog as "photofrog" (in fact, i didn't clear that one up in my head until someone else posted about it here, which is why i'd like to know what other ones are floating around).
also, i consistantly think of bellapalmera as having smelly feet. i guess i skip the "m" in there.
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?
Do you bring your own bags to the grocery store? How about your own cup when you go out for coffee? I feel like baking tonight. I'm thinking oatmeal butterscotch cookies, or maybe chocolate/peanut butter cupcakes if I can find a recipe, but does anybody have any other suggestions?
Me: Mary is commonly known as a good girl, for example: the virgin mary ... however Mary is a bad girl who never gets caught.
And that is absolutely true.
Also - I'm going to make a sausagey pizza tonight, what kind of cheese should I use? I'm going to do a classic zesty red sauce, I can do traditional mozz/parm or something fancy like munster and parm, I don't know, ideas?
What are ways, decisions, lessons, you have done, decided, learned on saving money and maintaining a tight budget? I haven't tried "if it's yellow, let it mellow" yet but if you know of unique, as well as commonly known, tricks please let me know.
Do you guys remember that picture somebody posted a while back about that stock trader person talking on what looked like a fisher price phone or McDonald's food box? I haven't been able to find that original picture, but I found another picture of some stock market guys with one!
Does anyone know what the hell these phone thingies are and WHY they are red and yellow?!? I have to know!!!
if someone is 2% french, how do i figure out how many generations it goes back? what's the math formula for it, if you don't mind? (besides dividing by 2 a bunch of times) i'm having a hard time with this. D:
alsooo... what does "made from concentrate" mean? do they dry out the oranges then soak it? do they make it liquidified? WTF DOES IT MEAN EXACTLY?!
Since a ton of people said that they eat hummus as an afternoon snack: What do you eat your hummus with? I bought a huge thing of it at Costco and I'm just curious if you have anything that tastes really good with it.
(I'm eating it with carrots)
Do you write letters to companies if you're unhappy with something? (I just went to open a thing of crackers and they were COVERED with mold and wet...WHAT THE FUCK?)
So my office has a stack of CDs and no one really knows who used what disk to install their copy of Office 2003. Except for two disks which people helpfully put their names on with sticky notes. There are 14 of us. We need to get a new laptop for someone and need to find out how many product keys we have left -- mainly to find out if we'll need to buy a new copy of Office with it. Any help? I have everyone's office product IDs, but I need the keys now.
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."
1. what's usually the first emotion you feel when you wake up? 2. what do you REALLY need right now? 3. how did you sleep last night? 4. what's your plans for friday night? 5. how has your day been so far?
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?
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?
