Gina from Virginia is a cute blonde. Eola from Arizona is a cute brunette. Bia from Lousiana is a cute redhead. C.K. is a big dude from Colorado. Who would you most like to be trapped in an elevator with?
For the older generations who were raised by racist/bigot parents/family/communities, is there any excuse for them to still be using racial slurs or still being, well, racist in this current society? I'm mostly referring to grandparents and older parents of people (around the ages of 60+).

Or do I take a job at a super expensive, super rich kid school teaching English as a second language, even though I told the first job I'd work for them after they so kindly gave me back the position I originally turned down? I just quit a job as an English teacher because the school was full of delinquents and I wasn't feeling very "Hilary Swank in Freedom Writers"-ish. This new school pays 1500 a month and all their students end up going to Harvard and Yale and shit in the states.
My future goals, of course, barely pertain to either of these: I'm gonna go back to the states and get my MPP/JD.

Should I be upfront with her about the financial aspect?
My boyfriend is telling me no, but I would think she'd understand.. And it's not like I only want into this program because it's cheaper. I have numerous reasons why.
Can anyone name this Marc Jacobs collection bag? Bonus points if you know the year/season as well. Thank you!
I think that's pretty tacky. Do you agree?
This happened hours ago btw, the party is over now.
for me it's the sound of someone scratching their skin, especially if it's a little dry. also the sound of nails scratching against denim.

How was your weekend?
srs & nonsrs ansrs plz
...post a full-frontal naked picture in your journal and keep it up for 2 hours?
...steal a bum's clothes? There's a passed out hobo asleep on the sidewalk. You just steal all his clothes and leave his penniless ass completely vulnerable to the elements and public ridicule
...not feed your pet for 3 straight days? You can give it water, but no food. The poor animal won't understand why you won't feed it and it'll probably whine and harass you consistantly in those 3 days
...not bathe or change your clothes for a full month? You have to wear one outfit 24-7, which probably means to work/school
...be locked in a dark elevator with a tarantula for one hour? They cut the power, and you just sit in complete darkness inside that elevator with a tarantula loose in the box with you. After the hour, they open the door and let you out
To what extreme?
What do you have on the walls in your bedroom? Pix, if you have them.
A giant handwoven blanket, a floor-to-ceiling mirror, my makeshift necklace rack (made from skirt hangers), a large Poe poster, and 6 shelves. My walls are the ugliest yellow ever so the large blanket and mirror are an attempt at covering some of it up. Ick.
Pictures if you got them, if not just describe it.
Say that you recently transferred from a somewhat prestigious university (at which you failed several classes...) to a considerably less competitive state school, at which you are doing considerably better in your studies.
Say that you have a ridiculously snobby family, and that you've already been made aware of one instance of a relative looking down on you due to the school you transferred to, in this case an uncle referring to your new university as "not a real college" (and it is very much so - it's an accredited university). You will be seeing most of your extended family over the holidays and will likely have to deal with probing "I'm-better-than-you" questions" and "but-you-have-so-much-more-POTENTIAL-than-that-school" comments.
How the fuck would you fend off these offensive questions and comments without being snotty right back to them??
(ETA: I'm getting my wisdom teefs out a few days before xmas, so if all goes according to plan I won't need to see these people over break anyway. But, just in case...)
Srs and non-srs plz.

2.have you ever dated someone much older than yourself while you were a teenage? how did this work out?
My friend's friend's boyfriend is hungover and the girlfriend is worried about him. He's semi-awake but still in bed, and he was complaining that he was hot so the girlfriend took his temperature - and it's 91.6!
So, what should one do for somebody with a really low body temperature?
Edit: Thanks guys. The guy started throwing up too, so my friend (who was in the library) is going back to help out and they're going to take his temperature again to be sure and assuming it really is that low they'll have to get him to the hospital somehow. (They're in college dorms but he's not a student so he can't go to the school's health center...I don't know if any of them even has a car so I'm thinking they might have to end up calling for an ambulance.) But anyway, thanks for the input everyone!
Will you post here and maybe get to know one another?

Answered: It was FreeRice.com!
Space is a curve
I remember we had a short silly conversation involving some insignificant events from my previous day in RL. But suddenly, the conversation took an abrupt shift and i ended up quizzing her about life and all. She was shooting out the responses almost instantly, as if she were a robot. I still remember part of the questions and answers cos the next morning the memory was still so vivid that i sat down and wrote some of them on the back of the newspaper which was beside my bed.
I came across that newspaper today again.

My paper (on the Arts in the 1930s) is 7 pages, plus 2.5 pages of sources. To be fair, a great majority of these sources are articles from one book. And there's really nothing I can cut out, because it's all relevant. Plus a lot of the stuff in the paper in cited, so it makes the paper longer.
Do you think I'll get marked down for going over?
(Eh, I really don't care if I get marked down. It's a good paper and I'm proud of it.)
I'll post the lyrics to mine, internet cookies to anyone who knows where it comes from:

What is your favorite flavor?
