For linkaphobes: Ringo Starr says any fanmail he gets after Oct 20th will not be replied to, simply thrown in the garbage in a Youtube video. Is this a good idea, or kind of douchey?
Beans, garlic, spinach, lentils, cilantro, chili peppers, BROWN IGUANA MEAT!!!!!!
1. My question is, what is the strangest thing you have found in a market?
2. What was the last recipe you experimented with and had an epic fail? What was it?
1. Did you go to kindergarten or whatever? Do you think it's weird if someone doesn't?
(Aw man, I only just saw on wiki that you americans seem to call it preschool or something? From ages 3-5, I mean, anyway)
2. Do you have any opinion on when it's too late to have children? If so, what age?
3. Ever had a relative as a teacher?
4. Does any quote from a tv show/book/movie ever just stick in your head and pop up at odd moments?
5. Does being a vegetarian really make you crazy skinny or something? My mum seems to think that if I stop eating meat I'll dissolve. Then again, she also believes microwaves will kill us all.
6. What is something really strange that you, or someone you know believes?
7. What is your favourite old nickolodeon show? (If you didn't watch nickolodeon, favourite old kids show in general).
I'm in the comments yo.
ALSO I FORGOT TO ASK:
8. Do you ever use the word "yous"? Does it annoy you when people say that?
Question 1: Am I going to get addicted and have to start selling my body and/or giving handjobs in alleyways to buy more Unisom?
Question 2: Are there any other comparable OTCs that DON'T contain gelatin as one of their inactive ingredients? I really don't like consuming gelatin if I can help it.
all i've eaten today was a milky way bar, a really tiny piece of cheesecake, and a small bag of funyuns. the last thing i ate was the funyuns and that was like six hours ago.
if i do order something, it won't be good for me. i have some food in the house but it is also not very good for me and i am feeling pretty lazy.
so should i order food or just go to bed without eating?
Can you recommend some sleeping aids, TQC, aside from those with diphenhydramine (aka benadryl) as their active ingredients?

I will be spending my morning and early afternoon volunteering at my college's Fallfest, meaning I'll spend all morning with a bunch of whiny 17 year old kids, so I will be a bit tired (though there'll be time in the afternoon for a nap if I so choose) when these occur.
A. My honors skate night. It's a point opportunity for us - but I'll have the points I need easily without this point. It's $10, possibly more, and lasts from 7-11. I'll have a ride if I ask around for one, but I won't be able to get there on my own. None of my closest friends will be there, just my casual acquaintances, some of whom I like and some of whom I just tolerate - including my crush. I find skating fun, but I can't do it too well and will definitely fall down a lot. It will be loud, but is something I can really only do once a year or so.
B. An improv night down the street. It's walking distance, and lasts from 7-10. It's free and there'll be refreshments, but shitty college-Sodexho ones. A couple of my closer friends will be there, but none of my best/closest ones (they all went home this weekend). The troupe doing the improv does it every Thursday from 8-9:30 and I go weekly, so I know I like them and I see them once a week - I just saw them this past Thursday. It will be packed and loud and is something I do once a week.
C. Stay the fuck home and do homework.
Which do I choose, TQC?
Is it ever right for anyone to take anyone else's life? Does anyone truly have the authority to say who lives and who dies?

2.) Have you ever planned casual sex with someone? Like making a lunch date?
3.) Ladies, what cologne do you like on a guy?
4.) Should I have a bagel with creme cheese or Raisin Brand for breakfast?
1.) I kissed a girl named Tonya in the lunchline in the 3rd grade, but that was on the cheek. My first real kiss was with this guy named Dwayne when I was in the 8th grade... right on a bench at Buckroe Beach.
2.) I did. With a Korean exchange student. He asked me to meet him after class and go to his dorm. It was like we were planning to go to lunch at McDonald's. The word "sex" never came up (maybe he didn't know it, he was new to the English language), but we both knew that's what was going to happen.

i found a reproduction of this style of art from a postcard i bought in berkeley the other day. ive looked up the pulisher and the name of the peice, but no dice.
does anyone here have any idea what type of art this is and where i can find it?

So, there is a vacant two bedroom now. Perfect. However, I know I've mentioned this briefly in comments but there is someone who is on the sex offender list in my building and yep, that was his apartment. He just moved out a few days ago but something about moving into his apartment creeps me out. Obviously he's not going to be there, but just something about it really irks me. Am I being a complete fool right now? I kind of feel like I'm in third grade right now, "Ew she touched it I don't want it now!?"

Also, can you think of anything else to write on the sash? It has to be work appropriate...I work at a Sprint retail store.
I have limited fridge space, and only a microwave.

I have a job dilemma. Last year, I applied to masters programs for library science (lol) and was accepted to both places I applied. I deferred admission to Fall 2009 because I wanted more work experience first. So anyway, I started working at my current job, in the library of a law firm, in April. This was after I had already been accepted to grad school. The reason I was hired (I assume) was because I mentioned an interest in the field, which is obviously true, but I at no point mentioned that I planned to attend grad school in another state in Fall 2009. My boss even mentioned that, when the time came, we could work things out so I could keep my job and attend a local grad program at night.
Anyway, at this point, I'm fairly certain I will be attending U of Maryland Fall 09 (I live and work in NYC currently.) Now, I plan to play it that I applied to programs this year to make things easier, and applications wouldn't be due for awhile. However, my boss clearly loves being a mentor and I think it would be weird if I was just like lol bye and gave a two weeks notice when I quit next summer. However, I dont want to be let go prematurely. And I also want to be able to use my boss as a reference, as this will be the longest library job I have had to date, assuming I dont leave until next summer.
I know this is tl;dr but if anyone has read it- when should I tell my boss about my plans? Or, if you dont care, any interesting stories about quitting/being fired from jobs?

My parents don't like the acceptance envelope- they think stuff is missing from it. All I got was the "omg congrats you're accepted" letter, an envelope to send the $100 tuition deposit, a piece of paper talking about FAFSA, and a big plastic red folder for "MSOE-related paperwork." Shouldn't these things have a lot more paper and stuff?
If so what does your plan entail?
How was it?
I just had an Apple tech support rep tell me to "stop talking and do what she says" and then hung up on me. I guess her mute button wasn't working correctly. when's the last time you experienced bad customer service on the phone?
Have you guys heard about the new Ad Campaign to combat the use of the phrase "That's so gay" (and variations of it)?
What do you think about it?
I don't know how effective it'll be, but I think it's a nice idea. It's annoying that "gay" is being used as a derogatory term.
