I broke my ankle on New Years and I have since been reintroduced to bubble baths! I hadn't took one in years! mostly because most of the places I've lived in had really gross bathtubs or I just never had time.

When's the last time you had a bubble bath?

if you take them often, what kind of bubble bath soap would you recommend? ( I'm currently just using shower gels. I want something that will create lots of bubbles!

Do you prefer online job applications or applying in the store?

Reasonable request or no?

I saw an advertisement for subletting a room that requested the person usually not be home. Is this a reasonable request (hey, at least they stated it up front) or is it sort of like saying "I just want your money but I don't want to deal with YOU"?

1. Is this spider cute or freaky?

I can't decide. On the one hand he looks like an adorable Muppet. On the other hand, it's a scary spider. I feel a knee jerk need to go grab my boot and smoosh it.

2. The local toy store carries Itasho mini erasers. They're lovely and I want to get a couple but I can't decide which ones. The story carries all of the food items. Which ones would you pick?

Here are the erasers;
FOOD
DESSERT
SNACKS
FRUITS AND VEGGIES

(They're even better looking up close.)

3. What is the closest you have ever come to meeting someone who was actually "evil"? Who was this person?

What did this person do or say that could be classified as such? How did this exchange make you feel afterwards?

TQC it's cold today on this miserable first day of the spring semester. I can't bring my unicycle to practice on campus. Do I bring my DS and animal crossing for the break in between my classes, or do I bring my knitting? I want to finish this scarf but I also want to pay off my last loan to that fucking raccoon. It'll only be an hour or so. I could also bring a book but I kind of want to do things with my hands.

Are you doing anything exciting today?

i have two errands to run: go to joann fabrics, and go to the bank. there are two of each of these nearbyish, and i can't pick which one to go to.

option #1:
drive 25 minutes to batavia, where there is both a joann's and also a branch of my bank. it's all winding country backroads, so there will be very little traffic but the roads may be unplowed or slippery. the joann's is also much smaller. i am relatively but not positively certain they will have what i need. 50 minutes total driving time.

option #2:
drive 10 minutes to albion to the bank, then a further 40 minutes to greece, where a very large joann's is. excepting the trip to albion, it's mostly major state routes which will be plowed but will have traffic. i have snow tires and thus drive faster than at least half the population here. 70 minutes total driving time.

so, which would you pick?

eta: i am not afraid of the roads but if they're slippery or unplowed, it'll make it take longer to get there.

Restaurant Health Inspections

Think of your absolute favourite restaurant/cafe/other place to eat. Would you continue to eat there if you heard it had recently failed/scored very low on a health inspection? Does it matter what part of the inspection it failed, e.g. staff did not wear hairnets vs. rat droppings in the food? Where do you draw the line?

A member of my household had defrosted some filet mignon steaks, but then didn't use them.  I was told I could have them, but they had to be cooked by last night.  So I cut them up and made stroganoff with them, since I didn't want to cook them as steaks, and had a craving for a yummy noodle dish.  It was almost criminal to use filet mignon like that, but MAN! was that stroganoff tasty and tender :)

Children's Stories

I was draining some canned corn while making dinner and suddenly had the memory of a children's book I used to have in which, the kid in it tried to foodl the tooth fairy by putting a frozen kernal of corn under their pillow. I was trying to recall what book it was from and that made me think of a series of books (I believe they were at least) about these two little monsters (or perhaps just animals) a brother and sister. They had really long shaggy hair/fur and sort of big eyes.

Does any of this sound familiar to anybody, can you recall the name of the books (or book if they were separate) ??

woes

The only internet we can get out here where we live is satellite internet, so we purchased a dish and modem from WildBlue (www.wildblue.net) in Februrary of 2008 for $400ish with installation. Apparently, they can't transfer the account to anyone, nobody else can use the equipment, and goddamn it I don't want to use the shitty internet anymore. Therefore, we're stuck with $400 worth of satellite equipment that we don't want.

"Mr. Brooks made a choice which not only ended his life, but also impacted the lives of his family and strangers. I am a stranger that Mr. Brooks never met, but am now dealing with the ramifications of his choice. My young children were witness to his death, the police presence in their neighborhood, and are students at the elementary school where Mr. Brooks chose to end his life.

Sunday, January 11th, 2009 will not fade entirely from the memories of my children. They will always remember the day a man committed suicide in thier neighborhod, at their school, by thier home. They will forever feel the injury inflicted upon their childhood by a man who was very sad and desperate.

Our family sends our most sincere sympathies to Mr. Brooks family. It is not my intention to lay guilt at their feet. Instead, my intent is to remind us that we impact the lives of friends, family, and strangers with our choices. Even in our darkest moments, we have the power to imprint ourselves into the memories of others."

Como se dice 'blog'?

This one is directed at all the bilinguals/expats/study abroad folks here.

I'll be studying abroad in Spain during spring semester (Feb-May) on a Spanish language/int'l business program and keeping a blog, primarily to keep my family and friends back in the States abreast of all my shenanigans over there. (Mom likes to know I'm still alive and doing my homework; grandma likes to see pictures of pretty buildings.)

Should I write up my blog posts in both English and Spanish? If I do, should I write them in English or Spanish first? How about throwing in palabras castellanas (Spanish words) with translations?

What's the hardest day of the week for you to wake up?

What's something weird you learned today?

Have you ever read Milton's Paradise Lost?
If so, did you find the whole incest creation of hell even more disturbing than your picture of hell itself?

I'm looking to order the Moleskine Weekly Planner Twinset(Red), but the only place I can find with decently priced shipping to Canada is Borders, and it's on backorder there.

I've never ordered from there before, and thus I don't know how reliable their backorder timing is. And I only say that because I once ordered an item from Amazon that said Backorder 2-4 weeks, and it got there three months later. Is borders generally more reliable?

Or alternately, does anyone know another place I can order it(or a place with a largeish selection of moleskine planners) from that ships to Canada for a reasonable price?

How old were you when you had them put on and taken off?

Why did you need them (specifics, if you have them. Not just 'I had bad teeth')?

wtf is wrong with you, you are in college. You should not be using kitten folders.

FOLLOW-UP QUESTION
Why does everyone think kittens are for Philosophy of Mind??? I am surprised by that result.


If you don't care about my folders, or even if you do but feel like answering another question, will you show me the last photo taken of yourself, or the last photo you took, or both?

Alternatively, is my neighbor really Matthew McConaughey?

Is it possible to live in a flat and NOT have annoying neighbors?
