I do not live in England, but need the price for a story.
November 28th, 2008
I do not live in England, but need the price for a story.
What's your favorite real ghost story? (For example; Lincoln's ghost has been said to haunt the White House. Andrew Jackson supposedly haunts the house as well. And can be heard swearing up a storm.)
And if you don't care for that one;
What is your favorite punk rock song? (old school, middle school or new school. It doesn't matter.)
I currently use a Sony VAIO that I've had for about 4 or 5 years and although it looks like its been eaten up, chewed, and spit out, and it's a tad bit slow, it has been pretty great to me.
The thing is, when we first got one, we had to return it twice until we found one that was not faulty. We also bought my brother one a few months ago, and he has not complained yet.
- Do you have any non-Sony recommendations? I may stick with VAIO, but I want to know my options and get opinions from others.
- For those of you with a Sony VAIO, how long have you had it, and has it been working well? Any price is alright, but the cheaper the better I suppose.
I also plan on asking for a small digital camera for Christmas. I've never had one so I'm not sure what exactly to look for in one.
- What camera (obviously that takes good quality pictures) do you recommend? Again any price range, but if you could find one that isn't too pricey (perhaps no more than $500), that would be great as well.
- For those of you who live in a box or just don't care, how was your Thanksgiving? When did it end for you, or does the party not stop 'til 6 in the morning?
My MIL is hosting one and there will be 8 people attending, so I need to make 7 Dozen cookies.
You give 1 dozen of your cookies to each person. I guess that means I'll be getting 7 dozen cookies back.
Cookies? What will I do with 84 cookies??????
So, tqc, what mp3 player should I get?

3. have you had sex in your parents house? someone else's parents house? n/y
a) Keep hanging out with him, see where this goes
b) Nip it in the bud
or c) some alternative you'll offer me
If you don't care, do you drink alone?
It made me realize that my grandpa talks almost exactly like Ozzy, so I can hardly understand anything he says to me. When my grandmother was alive she could translate everything for me.

In Florida, an atheist created a case against the Easter & Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians, Jews and observances of their holy days. The argument was it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized day. The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, Case dismissed.
The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, 'Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter, etc. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah, and Hanukkah. Yet my client and all other atheists have no such holiday.
The judge leaned forward in his chair saying , But you do. Your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant.
The lawyer said, 'Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists.'
The judge said, 'The calendar shows April 1st is 'April Fools Day. 'Psalm 14:1 states: 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool.
Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned.

Someone else is already bringing a broccoli and cheese casserole. Do you think if instead of using broccoli I just used extra cauliflower it would be different enough? I need something CHEAP to make because I just moved and had to put down a big deposit, plus I'm busy with moving so it needs to be easy, too.
what are 5 things you've done in the past few days?
what is your social class?
Casey (black lab, 7 years) and Randy (German Shepherd, rescued 2 years ago, 4 years old) have a bit of a rivalry. They're friends, but not too good of friends. Always have to be first to the ball, jealous if you pet one and not the other, and so on.
This morning I went to feed them, and there was an inch of pee in Casey's bowl, too much to be an accident.
What do you think -- did Casey do this or did Randy? WHY??
They both usually pee in the grassy area of the lawn.
2. Have you ever had sex at your kid's house?
Could you date or marry someone with opposite political views?

TQC, I think to much, today I am wodering about time travel through moving at the speed of light and trying to figure out how that works. If you stop time while moving at the speed of light, run to marse and circle it once and come back to earth, how is everyone else 50 years older than you? If time stops, wouldnt you be the one older than them?
Anyways, music (if its a good song) helps me to stop thinking, recommend any songs (before I go insane)?

Which hipster symptoms do/have you posessess(ed)?
I have come to the conclusion that men are total unoriginal. I get hundreds of messages with the subject "Hi". They then say I am hot and ask for an MSN straight away. Men are overly sexual straight off.

Short of throwing up on a regular basis, how do I get to be one of those people that everybody likes and gives lots of hugs to?
slightrebellion posted a link to an article about a trampling death at Wal-Mart.
TQC, I've been reading through some of the comments left there (at the news site) and now I'm confused.
What do a) ethnicity, b) political affiliation (who people voted for/support, etc) and c) religious/non-religious affiliation have to do with anything?

ETA: We're all a bunch of lazy, slightly irresponsible schmucks.
My mom is pretty difficult because she'll never tell you what she wants. She'll only say "You don't have to get me anything."
And my brother is difficult because he's 19, but cognitively four, and it's hard to buy something that's age appropriate, but still not too difficult for him.
What did I do? Didn't do?
Can we rekindle the magic?
EDIT OMG ...Travis Tritt "I Don't Love You (Anymore)" just played on my random shuffle...HOW FREAKING WEIRD IS THAT?? OMGOMGOMG
I am thinking about going into the L. Ron Hubbard store here (yes, there is one) - are they going to try to recruit me? Dianetics is fairly ubiquitous here.

on the side: when should you start looking for an apartment (in terms of how many months before you move into said apartment if you get it)?

1) If for some reason the dog runs away and gets picked up by animal control in the other state, what happens to Bob?
2) What does Sue need to do to get the address in the microchip changed?
No really. My friend and co-worker Amy and I are exchanging gifts- ten dollar limit. Now, she likes to bake, and likes tea (we aren't super close, but we ARE friends) so I thought I might do something along those lines.
Are you finished your Christmas shopping?
Can you tell me a dream you've recently had?
I dreamed last night that there was a wishing tree that you could visit every month. I would normally wish for my car to be filled up, but this time, I wished for a grilled cheese sandwich.
If so, are there other foods that share the characteristic?
What have you been putting off that you know you should have done ages ago?
I have just chopped up last years outdoor Christmas tree because we are meant to be going to pick out our new one tomorrow. The tree turned brown in around March and its dead carcass has been lying at the side of the driveway since then. I was told if it didnt get chopped up before December, we werent getting another one :(
Which do you prefer, running shoes or boots?
Bonus points for weird stuff.
I just noticed that I have a hairnet from work (hence the question), a vase full of flowers, an orange peel in a dish, unopened can of seltzer, digital camera, coupons, a letter and about a million other things.
Do you just reheat your leftovers or do you make new things from them?
"how do I network share my music in windows media player to my windows mobile device/smartphone?"
the only catch is the gift has to start with a certain letter of the alphabet that changes every year, and has to be around $10-15.

i know little to nothing at all about her.
i know she's 23, lives with her boyfriend, and is about graduate college haha.

I have this quote in a book in my language, and I'm trying to find out what it is in English. But I can't 'cause it seems my translation doesn't fit.
I it, loosely, 'You become what you oppose' or 'what you are against', and is signed as something like 'the first principle of self-determination'. How does it exactly sound in English. I've been googling it, but have not gotten any result.
How do you feel about cloth pads? What about menstrual cups?
Do you get cramps? How bad?
Do you ever get cravings when you're on your period? What for?
I just listened to the following phone conversation between my roommate and his GF (he was on the phone in my front yard right outside my window saying this in a very loud voice)
"All I've ever asked for is to touch your skin, for you to wear a thong, to wear heels, not to cut your hair and for you not to wear purple or black because it's not feminine. I love your skin and I love your feet, they're sexy."
It made me want to hurl.
A few days ago his gf was over and she showed me the mani/pedi he got her. I said "aww, well that's nice." to which she said "Yeah, I wanted my hair cut too but he told me I wasn't allowed to and that I have to grow it long." to which my reaction was to suddenly start channeling my mother and say "WHAT? What the hell? You do your hair however the hell you want to do your hair! It's YOUR hair not HIS hair. Tell him he can grow his own hair long if he wants long hair so badly!" This woman is in her mid to late thirties and I'm in my mid twenties, she started to look at me as if I was guiding her. It was weird and it made me sad to think that this was how she was choosing to live her life.
So I ask you TQC~ What's the weirdest, most backwards "rule" or convo. you've heard about between a man and a woman lately (relationship wise)
Ps. He came back inside so I walked passed him in my purple shirt with my short hair and my ugly chipped toenail polish and glared at him. What a prick.

2. Is it better to have loved, and gotten hurt, or to have never loved at all? loved and gotten hurt
3. Would you rather continue going with the chance you will be hurt again (and again) with hope/possibility you might find "the one", or would you rather just give up and only care for yourself (hence self-preservation)? I will never give up

Mine's name is Tina. Her backstory is that she is prostitute that has been beaten up by her pimp so many times. (The car has many dents from my friend, hence the beaten up part.)
I already have/ on my list:
Silk sleeping sack, quick absorbing towel, coin towels, outlet converter.
Speaking of outlet converters, according to this, it seems Britain and Italy have different outlets than the rest of Europe. Am I going to need three different adapters?
Have you ever stayed in a hostel? If so, where? What was your experience like? Can you recommend any to me?

Ex: I'm a liberal artsy-queer femme-dyke with an odd affection for squids and sex toys.
ETA: Okay, so here's the situation. I've known him 2 months or so, we've only been getting particularly close the past 2 weeks or so. We have a large amount in common and every time I see him I get all giggly. We're talking online right now and I keep just wanting to be like "hey guess what I like you" but I'm sure that's a bad idea. It's been established by both parties that we find the other party attractive, but while it was genuine on my end that doesn't necessitate that it was genuine on his.

Who has inspired you? Personally I think Hitler is a great inspiration...not based on the whole hate races other than your own, but come on! he started out as nothing, and worked his way up to coming sooooo close to ruling over all of europe (and maybe soon the whole world_!!! that has to inspire someone...or do you think my whohle statement was racist?
Last thing you said that was missconstrewed?
I want to go get my hair cut tomorrow, and I want to do something to it, because as it stands right now, my hair just sort of is there, really straight and ... there. It does not and will not hold curl or waves, so any of that is out. But I want to somehow shape it.

So, what do you think would make my face look all right, TQC? (I've lost a lot of the chin ... ness, so I don't have as much anymore, but I definitely have a round face). I am hopeless with hair and makeup, so I need your expert help. :) I want to go shorter, but not ridiculously short - I look butch when it's too short.
ETA: Would I look good with actual bangs, or should I keep them grown out? I've been toying with just getting a couple inches off, getting it layered and getting bangs, but idk about the bangs bit.
For example, my husband and his brother are 5 years apart. They keep talking about how the age difference is why they aren't so close to each other. Personally, my brother and I are 8 years apart and we are pretty close friends.
For instance, I'm wicked pale and I don't seem to pull of any shade of red/pink/orange at...all.
I'm jealous of people who can pull off rich brown colors.

Do you like when books are made into movies? Or do you think books should be left alone? I think it kind of ruins the book. Especially when you have your own image of the characters. However, I don't mind Harry Potter movies and LOTR. haha.
ETA: What about remakes (old or foreign)?
Our Church and a local college are participating in a Midnight Run. From the website: Midnight Run is a volunteer organization dedicated to finding common ground between the housed and the homeless. You can read more at MidnightRun.org if you're interested.
Anyway, my mom wants to make cards to stick in the lunch bags that they will be handing out. She thinks it's insensitive to have cards that say "Merry Christmas!!" and that something along the lines of "Thinking of you this Holiday/Christmas season" would be more appropriate. Her reasoning is that odds are Christmas isn't as wonderful for people with no homes and little to no family or possessions. My dad cannot even grasp her line of thinking. He says "A card is a card." Is my dad being willfully ignorant or is my mom being over sensitive?
I want to go to Ireland. I have never left the country. What should I know before I go? srs and non.
My boyfriend wants me to dye my hair black, and I would, except for the last time I did I was a sophomore in high school and when I tried to get it out I bleached it. It didn't work and I walked around with bleached roots and black hair and looked like a skunk until I could drop the 200 bucks to fix it professionally.
So. Is it possible to remove black hair dye? Does it fade eventually? Is this a stupid idea?
Also, is it possible to mix dye colors? Could I FEASIBLY mix a brown dye with a black dye to make really, really dark brown?
If you could choose to be a little retarded, like, you know, in the fun way, would you?

- lover (seems too sexual)
- just their name (is too ambiguous)
there is always that stereotype that all girls are out to get married, and i sometimes feel like i'm the only one of my friends who wouldn't get married under any circumstances in the near future.

Vista (which fucking sucks so don't ever get it) keeps freezing randomly. Then the piece of shit says, NOT RESPONDING, so I have to shut the bitch down.
It gets especially bad when I'm on youtube. I can't watch ONE video without Firefox, IE or Opera crashing on me. I tried disabling java, reinstalling flash, reinstalling my browsers...nothing is helping.
Are any of you guys experiencing this type of crap with Vista? Are there any solutions to this shit? Is the world coming to an end?
