I'm having a small birthday party tomorrow, where we'll just be having cake, cocktails, and champagne.

One person is bringing lemon sorbet.
One person is bringing Maple Pecan Cheesecake.
One person is bringing bread and butter pudding.

What can I make (doesn't have to be a cake, so long as it's a dessert) that'll contrast with these, whilst not being too complicated or overpowering?


Thanks.

My dad is going in for surgery tomorrow morning. It's minor surgery, he'll be in and out in, like, an hour, but I'm still nervous.

Will you please tell me that my dad is going to be fine so I can stop worrying?

I just read an X-Files fanfic that had Mulder and Scully so out of character it was painful. And there were medical issues in there that don't exactly work out. I left a review pointing out all the things wrong. Should I feel guilty? Because I really feel guilty now and I don't know why.

You're playing scrabble and you rearrange your letters to only to discover that you have the letters to make up a really good dirty word (let's pretend that slang works... roommates and I accept slang words in our own game). Do you place the dirty word down on the board just to have it on there for shits and giggles or do you go for the word that has the most points (assuming you can get more points on another word, even if the dirty word is funny)?

1. Time Warner has pulled all of their artists' videos from Youtube today. Apparently, Time Warner wanted more money than Youtube was willing to give them to allow Youtube to keep airing their videos.

Was this a wise move on Time Warner's part since they were fighting for their artists? Or was it bad since music channels on cable are just about extinct and Youtube did a service by playing their videos and getting their music out there?


2. I know we've had quite a few video questions today but I want to know what is the most dramatic narrative video? That is, screw the music, what video on visuals and storytelling alone, made you feel like your heart had been ripped out?

Every day at about 1am my internet stops working. Clicking "Repair" doesn't work, neither does disabling and enabling. I just have to restart my computer and it works fine. This only starting happening since I reformatted my computer a week ago and it isn't the internet because it doesn't happen to my brother.

this is a college town. most people should be gone by now, but somehow, there's a party upstairs, just like EVERY OTHER FUCKING NIGHT.

i wish i could call the cops. oh, how i wish! but my roommate is really good friends with one of the guys upstairs and i don't want to cause trouble. besides, this same guy bragged to me last year about how they once got the cops called on them by the former residents of my apartment because they were modeling high heels at 3am. he thought it was soooo funny. they're rich motherfuckers so they don't give a shit about paying fines.

i swear to god. they are playing the worst music (seriously..."the cup of life" by ricky martin) and jumping around and stomping all over the place. if i were to ask them to turn it down they would say, "oh, i'm sorry! we'll turn it down!" then lock their door and, you know, not turn it down. they're really dramatic, too, so they'd probably talk shit about me all over campus just like they talked shit about their last neighbors.

how do i get these assholes to SHUT THE FUCK UP? they need to be fucking beaten or something if even the cops can't shut them up.

My kitty got sick and was super dehydrated/wouldn't eat. We brought her to the vets where they held her overnight for 3 days and fed her with an IV. We brought her home today because they couldn't figure out why she was sick and it was a waste of money. She STILL won't eat or drink anything and instead just sleeps.

Is there anything I can do to help her? If she continues not eating, is it okay to try feeding her baby formula with an eyedropper? :/

Any suggestions would be great. :(

Do you find the word snigger offensive?

I was just watching Sunrise (a morning news show), and they were talking about how some American publishers thought it was offensive, or could be taken offensively, because it has nigger in it, even though the words have entirely different meanings.

Would you prefer that when used (assuming for cordial discussions where the participants aren't being inflammatory), the word is spelt properly, or censored (n*gger) or is only referred to (the "N" word)?

Appropriate?

A co-workers brother passed away suddenly a few days ago. The obituary was very non-specific but the way it read I suspect it was a suicide. I lost my step-brother to suicide a couple years ago on New Years eve - so very similar timing. Is it appropriate for me to send him an email just saying I'm sorry to hear about his brother's passing and that I went through something similar? I won't mention that my step-brother was a suicide or anything, since I'm not 100% sure that's the case with his brother.

Or, would it be better to just leave things unsaid? I don't want to upset him any more either.

So for the past couple weeks when I would get to work, my computer would not turn on right away. I would push the button to power it up (we had to shut down at the end of every day) and nothing would happen. Ten minutes would pass, I'd come back, and it would turn on. Now? This morning, it just stopped working completely. An hour of pushing that button was no dice. Old Gateway, XP Home edition.

In countries where they drive on the left hand side of the road, are the orders of the pedals in the driver's side reversed as well? I know that the turn signal thing moves to the other side of the wheel, and the shifting order is flipped too (or so I've heard), but do they move the pedals so that you engage the clutch with the right foot and brake/gas with the left? Or is it still the same as in US cars?

Which one do you like better? And explain why.

1. Christmas or Thanksgiving?
2. IHOP or Denny's?
3. Strawberry or Blueberry?
4. Ugly Betty or Pushing Daisies?
5. Winter Break or Spring Break?

1. Christmas. The presents, and I like christmas food better.
2. IHOP. It's just better. Denny's is cheaper though.
3. Strawberries. They're less bitter than blueberries, even though blueberries taste better in muffins and donuts.
4. Ugly Betty. It doesn't go overboard with it's corniness.
5. Spring Break. It's warm and I can go outside without being miserable.

boring TMI about icons

What purpose do your icons serve? be as detailed as you like. tell me your icon finding process, if you have one.

Mine are usually meant to coordinate with my emotions or sentiments or subject matter demonstrated in my icon. Like, I'll use my Jerri icon if I'm talking about sex, drugs, rocknroll, anything gross, and so on. But my winking icon (when its not christmasfied) I use when I'm extremely pleased with something or someone because it is my favorite icon. I recently got an icon of Steve Carrell, partly because I can use it when I dissaprove of something and I formerly had no icon that looked angry. I had to use my ear-popping one for that, which simply would not do. I use my Sad Sack Society Stephen one when I'm upset, "I shit thee not" usually when I'm bragging, and my Tobias one chiefly when I'm talking about Arrested Development. I usually have a few that I can use for just about any occasion. At one time, at least one of my icon has to be Jon Stewart related, at least one related to Strangers With Candy (non-Chuck) and cannot have more than three moving icons, not including the winking one. For a while I was having trouble deciding between two Stephen "lol" icons, one where it was more of a chuckle, and the current one, which is much more exagerated and loud. I found the former to be more appropriate in some situations, but the one I made, the latter, really gets the point across more effectively.

Will you give me a TMI description about something that nobody else likely cares about?

i also found an old sketchbook of mine an hour ago from when i was around five or six full of really strange drawings. i know she would looooooooove that on its own, but i sort of feel bad just giving her a gift i didn't make this year (if i didn't go with the canvas idea, obviously). should i stick with giving her the sketchbook and go to bed early tonight for a change, or should i stop being useless and paint something as well?  I'M SO LAZY

I'm just going to head to the shopping center to grab dinner at Moe's maybe look around the stores,however-should I need to kill more time, should I go hang at Panera's with my laptop even though I'd likely not buy anything?

What would you do if people started making jokes/praises of you in the form of Chuck Norris-esque "facts"? And this went on for months?


Can you think of any "facts" for other members?

vacation stuff

my boyfriend and i want to take a short vacation sometime in the spring, like late marchish. the problem is, we have no money...well, we're willing to spend about $400 each for the entire thing. we live in California, by the way

does anyone have any suggestions?

we both don't really like to drink, so no big party places (i'm also only 19. he's 23). we like sports, not the beach so much, and not really huge fans of big cities.

ignore those guidelines! WHERE SHOULD WE GO???

I just walked into the house and my mom is standing in our closed up kitchen smoking. I say "Can you open the window?"

Nothing happens.
I walk over the window and open it and my mom says "DON'T YOU THINK IT'S A LITTLE COLD ?!

I tell her that I can't breathe

She runs away into her room without a word. (but she's clearly pissed)

Did I do something wrong?
Should I have gone about this another way?

Have you ever stayed at a hostel before? Where was it, and what was it like?

I'm wondering about hostels with no lockers, what would you do with your bag if you can't carry it around with you for the day? Would you just leave it on your bed, or in the corner or something?

Things to consider:

- My daughter will be with her grandparents that night.
- My fiance might have to work on Jan. 1 '09
- Rock bands in our part of Oklahoma... have accents that belie the genre.
