this is the story of how a person got from point a to point z. some call it fate, others, chance. but whatever you call it, it sure is an interesting thing to ponder, don't you think? the twisted paths our lives follow. how did you get here, the place where you are right now at this very moment? what series of events brought you to this place at this specific point in time? where are you in life? are things turning out the way you had planned? and by the way, when was the last time you spoke with your parents? don't you think you ought to give them a call to thank them for the set of circumstances that brought them together at a certain place at a certain moment in time, when you were created?

My dad wants to visit me tomorrow (er, later today, it being 12:45 am and all) and I really want to see him, but I have a lot of homework to do.

I'm feeling homesick and lonely, which sucks out all of my motivation to work. I hope that seeing my dad will make me feel better.

What should I do? Should I tell him not to come because I'm too busy? Or should I workworkwork while I'm waiting for him to show up and work my ass of on Sunday?

ETA I love you guys. I'm going to go work now so I can spend time with him later.

I'll ask this in a NYC/NY community too but:

Does anyone know of a good dermatologist in NYC/Long Island?
Is there some kind of website with reviews?
(I checked google, but it's giving me three states worth of doctors)

Do you go to a dermatologist?
Do you think I should just ask my regular doctor for some kind of recommendation?

TQC, can you take a popular song lyric, translate it from English to another language back to English with this site, and then post the resulting jibberishy English so we can guess what the original song was? I loved doing this last time we did it.


Do you ever feel that your single male friends hang out with you because they want to get with you?

I mean, not that they aren't good friends, and not that they're only thinking about that, but it's certainly on their minds?

Do you have any friends that you're pretty sure wouldn't hang around you if they really, truly thought it would never happen?

ETA: When you break up with a SO, do people suddenly come out of the woodwork telling you they love you? I hate that crap.

What the HECK is up with the couple sitting side by side in -separate- BATHTUBS on a platform at the beach? A single bathtub/hottub would make more sense, or hell, just go swimming. Can someone explain what the hell they're trying to say with the bathtubs? It bothers me every time I see it, because it makes no sense. Splain?

so i'm the stereotypical ~good girl~ who has never done anything remotely bad in my life. tonight, i decided i was going to drink with my friends for the first time. i've never even tasted alcohol. D: but i was really excited for it.

HOWEVER like 20 minutes before i was headed out the door, i felt nauseous and then bam. my stomach decided to crap all over my plans (literally). so i've been stuck at home (within 10 feet of the bathroom) ALL. NIGHT. LONG.

edit to make it more clear: the sickness hit before the drinking started. in fact, i didn't even see the alcohol before i had to run to the bathroom. D: so i still haven't ever drank.

a) is this a sign that i should not engage in underage drinking?

b) do you believe in signs?

c) should i watch hocus pocus or the new season premiere of degrassi to help take my mind off my tummy? :(

I ran into a friend I haven't seen in a coupe of years. And like we often did in the past, we had a very intense discussion with our heads close together, ignoring everyone around us. There was one very drunk sloppy make-out session a few years ago. The moment someone starts asking why we don't date and make babies, we both clam up. It's obvious we are into each other, yet do nothing.

What's stopping us?

that's mostly a boring question. so in addition, I ask: What is your favourite piece of playground equipment?

what unfold all script do you guys use? the one i have right now only has thread unfold and comment unfold, cause for some reason, the other one doesn't work. when you click unfold all, the comments just disappear.

i just got a new hard drive a few weeks ago so there's basically nothing on here and i can't figure out why it won't work.

eta: for those of you that don't know, an unfold all script puts an "unfold all" link next to the post comment link. clicking that will open all of the comments on the page, so you don't have to go through and click the link for each individual comment. you need firefox with greasemonkey installed to install the script.

1. In what ways are you frugal?

2. What do you think about this scenario? A couple had a child almost 12 years ago. They were never married and their relationship ended soon after the child was born. Now the kid is 12 years old, the mother has been married for three or four years and has another child with her husband. The father is single and has never been married. What do you think about all of them (father, mother, stepfather, kid and new kid) going trick-or-treating together?

Questions for Heroes fans

This season is turing out to be hella confusing in spots so I have a few questions.

1. How are you liking the 3rd season thus far? Any complaints?

2. If everyone in the show just stopped trying to change the future do you think it would solve most of the the problems they get into?

3. At the end of this season which characters do you think will end up switching sides and becoming a villain if they were a hero and vice versa?

Yesterday I went to my psychiatrist and I was really depressed in general, and couldnt keep from crying. I was just really tired and in a shitty mood. Anyway, my psychiatrist is making me call her tonight and tomorrow night to confirm that I havent tried to off myself, and if I dont call she said she'll call the cops.

Is that reasonable? I really have no plans to kill myself- I do have a history of depression but clearly havent killed myself yet so...

Feather Identification

Can anyone identify this feather for me?

I found it in the bush near a waterfall today. I live in North Western Ontario if that helps with identifying species that live in certain areas. For the record I have tried googling it and looking in bird books but couldn't find anything that looked like it matched. I know I have seen these feathers before but can't for the life of me remember what they are.

If for some reason the picture doesn't display its a blackish/dark grey colour with a goldish brown tip. There's also a light speckling along the one side that goes about 2/3 the way up the feather.
