When moving into an apartment, besides appliance and a bed and all the big things, what do you need? What is easy to forget?

I'm buying things for when my boyfriend moves out here while Linens and Things is offering crazy discounts and want to get everything we can possibly need.

So I just started watching that 24 movie that was on last weekend and Jack Bauer said some stuff about where he had been travelling around.  Now....I can't remember. What happened at the end of the last season of 24? Did he have to disappear again or something? I can't keep the seasons of that show straight anymore. :/

have you ever done acid?

if no: ignore the next three questions

if yes:

how did it go for you?
have you been quoted as saying its your "favorite drug" after doing it?
do you worry about the whole "it puts holes in your brain" thing?

are you drunk right now?
if not: do you wish you were?


wyrd, yea. i just tried it the other day.

-its hard to get intense acid in wisconsin, so the trippiest thing i "saw" was when i'd sit still and it felt like the world was breathing with me. and i stared in the mirror for a while, and my face seemed to bulge from the inside out, which was scary-ish and nuts
-haha, yes, i definitely have now. all of my friends who have done it say its their favorite drug too.
-i worry about it, because i'm pretty self-absorbed and arrogant when it comes to my "intelligence," and if that shit's true, i'm going to actively be destroying the one thing that matters to me, haha.


-ohhhhh yea, definitely.

TQC, What games did you like as a kid? Didn't like?
Can you give me a list of some games from the 80's/90's?
Edit: Or maybe some websites that would have some lists of games from the 80's/90's?

I loved, Don't Break The Ice, Guess Who, Jenga, and Connect Four. I also had a ouija board! haha.

I am looking for some new music because I listen to the same shit all the time. I like basically everything except when you can't hear the words properly.
Also I'm gonna Youtube ALL OF THESE to see if I like anythin' so song suggestions would be good too, if you can be bothered

My BF just got taken away in an ambulance :(
His back had been bugging him all day and it took him 20 minutes to get out of bed to get to the washroom. Another 45 minutes to get off the toilet. And another hour to give in and finally wake me up to help him.

I couldn't ride in the ambulance with him... should I take a taxi to the hospital now (it's 6.45AM)? Or should I try to get a few hours of sleep (will probably just be tossing in bed) and go there when the world is brighter?

AGH, TQC, I've messed up my computer (again). I was pressing random keys (like I do) and all of a sudden all my font/type went ridiculously small, and now whenever I log onto facebook all the font is tiny; I tried hitting more keys in the same general area, but no dice. How do I make the screen go back to the way it was?

Hit and run?

Say one night you're driving out in middle of nowhere and you happen to nod off at the wheel. Suddenly you feel a bump and you awake with a start. Slamming on the breaks you get out of your car and noticed a fresh human body in the middle of the road. It might have been dead before you hit it might not but it's very certainly dead. There's no one around for miles. What do you do?

if you pay most of the credit card payment do you have extra interest that needs to be paid for the next month?

because i made a purchase (online) & it went through TWICE, since the shipment hasn't gotten here yet, i can't send it back. it's supposed to get here december 3rd, while my credit card payment is due december 10th. i can take it back into the store (it's from nordstrom's) but will it process in time? it a $285 purchase x 2, i don't want to end up with a +$285 on my credit card for next month if i pay out the whole thing. (bank of america is what i have)

does anyone have any idea why facebook won't work properly on my macbook anymore? it will login and go to the home and profile pages, but it won't do anymore than that. it gives me the message that it is unable to connect with the server. is it the internet connection, my laptop, or facebook that's the source of the issues?

even though i have a macbook and they supposedly don't get viruses, do i need to stop watching porn on my computer?

I bought some house shoes for my mom for Christmas from Victoria's Secrets via my debit card. Which you would think wouldn't be a big deal, but then they sent me this email saying they couldn't process the card and they would continue to do so for 14 more days after the date i purchased them.But, if i entered the wrong info to call customer service.

So what happens after the 14 days? Has this ever happened to any of you?

Cookies?

Hey all,

I'm going to a cookie exchange next week, and we've been asked to bring frozen cookie dough instead of baked cookies.  That way, people can bake the cookies whenever they want.  I think this is a rather clever idea, but I'm a bit stuck.  The only frozen cookie dough info I've found online has been for chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies.  Given that there are going to be 8 of us there, I think that someone else will likely bring those.  I'd like to bring something a little more unique.

Do any of you have recipes for cookie dough that can be easily frozen, and that isn't chocolate chip or peanut butter?

Thanks!

1. You're Christopher Columbus's advisor. You arrive somewhere in the Americas, and he turns to you and asks, "Should we explore, bring back some stuff and let history go as planned, or should we turn around and say we just went to India?" If you turn around, no Natives will be killed and the Americas as we know it won't come to exist. What do you do?

2. You are Adolf Hitler's nanny. Hitler was just born, and you're watching Baby Hitler sleep alone. You can kill Baby Hitler with no consequences, possibly saving millions of lives, but you don't know what the world would be like with all those Jews and Palestine. Do you strangle Baby Hitler and tell his mom that he died in his sleep?

I didn't get a good response last time, so this is roughly the same question I asked a few months back.

Where is some place to go on a year late honeymoon/short vacation 3-4 day weekend type deal? We've lived in Boston,MA and in Stafford, VA. (So we're all Boston, Salem, Williamsburg and Fredericksburged out.)

Budget is roughly $1000, and we want to stay on the East Coast, and go no farther than Virginia. (We're stationed in North Carolina and we're only going to go back there - and we do not like it.)
