What is the most bizarre book you own/read?
how do they describe it?
do you agree?
"the feeling of living in a small town with all the amenities of "big city" living."
"attractive tree-lined streets" and "peaceful and well-maintained neighborhoods"
"a wide variety of home styles to select from including well constructed bungalows, historic homes with authentic craftsmanship, urban townhouses, newer condominiums, senior complexes as well as million dollar estates"
it's pretty true. i do live in a well constructed bungalow. on an attractive tree-lined street.
If you don't use any, care to make some up?
If you had to get one (like gun to your head your family would die if you didn't) what would you get?
What brought on the feeling?

I'm in retail. I'm a manager, though at the bottom of the manager totem pole. I've been getting really stressed out lately and it's resulting in me becoming bitchy. I don't like it. What can I do to keep myself from getting so stressed out?? It's my first holiday season as a manager, not to mention i'm also the only hiring coordinator for a HUGE store. EEK.
For the record, I came up with my answer after typing up the question, I did not think about my answer ahead of time. I'd go for the letter opener in the drawer and probably go at the neck or something.
So tell me TQC,
Am I dying?
what do you think of girls gone wild?
Get home, plug in - nothing, try several plugs and wiggling - still nothing...

envelope..........Is there any tricks to making netflix run faster? My dvds are taking 5 days now when they used to take 3.
I am definitely too wired to sleep right now. Shiiiit.
I need someone to please tell me why my internet sound just decided to stop working. Please! I can't hear Youtube and Hulu type videos. I have updated the flash and internet browsers. Itunes, winamp and zune and all other non internet sounds work. Yes, the volume on both the laptop and video are all the way up.
Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease!! It's driving me crazy!
Skirt + knee socks + boots + t-shirt layered over long sleeve shirt + arm warmers + possibly hat and/or scarf and/or coat in case of freak blizzard = good outfit to survive a Texas winter in, yes? No? Contrary to popular belief, it does get pretty cold here. :/
Speaking of which, can anyone point me in the direction of cute skirts suitable for colder weather? All I'm finding on Google is frumpy stuff that looks like someone tied gray blankets about people's waists. I like medium length with a little flounce, any color.

2: What were your experiences like?
3: Do you stay with the same group for all four years or do you change year after year?
Like, can I ask people for their sob stories and pick the one I like best?
Or is it more of a first-reply-gets-it-no-questions-asked?
(I want to give away my huge $100+ Christmas tree I got 2 years ago that is just a little too freakin' huge for my house. There have been a few WANTED posts for Christmas trees - but they of course do not include any sob stories.)
TIA, innernetz gods and goddesses.
Just now I got a call from another number I didn't know (same area code and first 3 digits as the other one) and answered... it was a woman demanding to know who I was, saying that "I don't know your number, you're in New Jersey and you called my daughter in *NORTH Carolina, who the hell are you?" lol. I was all, uhh, I never called anyone in North Carolina, I don't know anyone in North Carolina. She didn't believe me and demanded to know who I was, again. I said "Uhh, my name is Kathleen, yes my phone number is in New Jersey but I go to school in Georgia... I don't know what else you want to know." She demanded to know my last name, at which point I told her that I am not comfortable giving that information to anyone I don't know, and since I know neither her nor her daughter, there's nothing more I can tell her to help so goodbye, and I hung up. She's probably trying to dig up dirt on me, not that she'll find any, crazy bitch.
(Also, how young is this girl that her mother needs to call and verbally abuse people whose numbers she doesn't know? If she's really THAT young, why the f does she have a cell phone in the first place...?)
Will you tell me about the last WTF???? moment you had?

I really need this picture. It's in a flash player slideshow thing, so I can't just save it. Is there a way to get it other than screen capture? Do you think there's a higher resolution copy out there somewhere? I tried Google image search, no luck. I'm sure Yahoo owns the hell out of it.

Do you think there is a chance they can work with me and arrange for the class to be worth the same number of units, by adding more coursework or special projects? Have you heard of anything like this before?

1) Do you know any exercises for increasing your focus and attention span?
2) I was diagnosed with ADD in High School, but I strongly suspect I don't actually have a disorder, I just happen to have a short attention span and am bad at being consistent. Should I get a prescription for Adderall anyway?
3) What are some activities that you really enjoy that you find mentally engaging? If it involves media (eg reading, watching movies), list recommendations?
4) Do you read your horoscope? My friend thinks that astrology is a very good therapeutic tactic, what do you think?

I made my first deliciously successful grilled cheese today.
please acknowledge how epic this is because the last one I tried to make didn't even have the cheese all melty and gooey (which is what makes a grilled cheese worth eating in the first place) and because my cooking skills are limited to:
bowl+soymilk+special K = breakfast
phone book+dial tone= pizza
&AS OF TODAY,
bread+grill+cheese= well, you know.
what's the last thing you were proud to have accomplished or learned?
i think it's kind of stupid when people pour their hearts out in their statuses. it always sounds like a big attention ploy.
i'm trying my hardest not to call someone right now but 1) i want to talk to him, 2) a small part of me is worried that something happened to him because i haven't heard from him. will you please try to convince me not to call him?
i love escape games, do you have a favorite escape game? will you link to it or tell me the name so that i can find it?
i bought a box of 2 hot pockets the other day and thought i'd try them out. i'd never had one before and i really liked the convenience and the cardboard cooker/holder thing, hhaha, but the taste is totally not delicious. i'm done with hot pockets.
i've been pushing myself since 12:30ish not to call or text him and i'm growing more and more impatient.

My back really hurts and I am sad because I have to take my dog to the vet tomorrow (to get a tumor removed) and my Dad called last night and he is in hospital in another country and there is nothing I can do to help him. I'm having a fair bit of trouble focusing.
a) write solidly for the next few hours and get the essay finished RIGHT NOW?
b) take a break, have a bath, and then get back to it when I might be in a better mood?
c) say fuck it, and write the essay tomorrow (due at 5pm)?

What is your opinion on this petition?
We don't get to "hang out" nearly as often as I'd like but I'm kind of mad at him. Well not mad, just disappointed in him, and I dread that it will turn into a heavy conversation about things I don't want to hear about. But he wants me to go over still. And if I don't then it will be like another week until I do, and I'll probably end up wishing I had.
Make my irrational girly decisions for me pls.
Should I go?

Has anyone ever ruined a song/show for you by constantly singing/referencing it?
One of my roommates has been singing songs from Children of Eden nonstop for the past few days and it makes me want to hit her in the face with a bible.
I live in a city, and from what I can tell, where they're coming from is just a residential neighborhood, but they're freakin' HUGE.

If not, what was the first gift you ever gave someone you were romantically interested in?
There are always huge banging noises coming from inside her room. Like...slamming furniture against a wall. She also often has her television on with the volume WAY up.
But today, about half an hour ago, I heard some really weird dog-like noises. I thought the noises were coming from outside.
But I listened more closely, and realized two things. First, they were coming from her room. Second, they were sex noises.
1. Do you think that the slamming noises and the loud television are the result of bizarre sex?
2. This is the first time I've ever heard other people having sex. (Yeah, I've been lucky.) This isn't a question. I just wanted to mention it.
3. Do you think she can hear me when I have sex?
I like the way they look but I'm afraid of them being uncomfortable...
Do you brush your teeth in the shower?
My roommate does this and it's really confusing to me, especially since he uses a battery-powered toothbrush. I've never heard of anybody else doing that (at least in real life).
What are you making for dinner?

-Do you consider that question TMI?
Would you find it cute and sweet, or cliche and annoying, if your girlfriend/wife on rare occasion sent you a short love-note.
My SO seems to appreciate them (mine aren't terribly sappy, just nice - for instance, today's was "I miss seeing your drooly face on the pillow next to me in the morning." - and I'm living about 12k miles away at the moment), but for some reason I suspect that's not the standard reaction, at least within the US.
So, men, how would you react?
What do you do to boost your self-esteem?

What state do you live in? What do you like best about the weather? What do you like least about the weather? If you could move anywhere in the United States (taking into consideration the price of housing there, etc.) where would you go? Why?
I live in South Florida and I hate it. I would love to move to NC or VA, and live near the mountains. I just wonder if it's too miserably cold. :) I have a friend who moved here from Boston and she said there's only really 8 warm weeks there/year. She hated it and is so happy to be in Florida.
Is it really so miserable? Is VA that cold? NC near the mountains? :)
P.S. Has googled it, but found no explanation -- only display of structured leather goods!
got any memorable questions that others have asked you?
What do you love most about them?
If mental illness is not something you care/deal with:
What do you love most about your best friend?
In your own opinion, is this true or false?
I'm not sure how easy it can be argued one way or another, its a very closed-minded statement. I know its definitely true for a lot of women, but I don't consider it true for myself. My dad is convinced, though, that I really do have the "instinct built in me" to want a man to protect me. The thought is lol-able to me. I actually don't even have an interest in romantic relationships. My own conscious decision, though. Not some form of psychological scarring. Though I know many would beg to differ.

Will you tell me the story of how you were in the same position as I was but the guy (or girl) eventually came around and agreed to be more than friends? Or does this basically never happen?
Also, if I keep seeing him "as a friend" is it going to make him more likely to think of me first when he is ready for a relationship or am I just screwing myself?
Edit: He also wants the ball to be in my court on deciding whether we should keep hanging out, but I already decided I do want to, so should I preface our next meeting with something like "I'm sorry I put you in that position last time and I'm not going to try to pressure you into anything, I just really want to keep you in my life" or is that overkill?
