After 4 long years with my Razr, I'm FINALLY getting a new phone!!! I want a Blackberry Storm. Does anyone have one? Do you like it? Should I get that one? What other phones should I consider? A GPS thing is the most important feature I'm looking for. I'd also like a full keyboard and a decent camera.

For all you late-night double-feature fans

If you go to YouTube and try to dig up a clip from Sweet Charity, you might one run across one of my favoriter Bob Fosse dance routines: Big Spender. (If you haven't seen the show, the background is that the protagonist, a young woman, is working at a gentleman's club as a companion dancer .. well, a little fancier; and this scene is our first exposure to the club.) In the "you should also see" section is a Rocky Horror Pre-show performance (and a rather good one, except for the color balance and lighting).

Have you ever seen a particularly good pre-show, whether for Rocky Horror or any other live show? What was it? Brownie points, as always, for YouTube embeds.

I'm bike shopping atm. Apparently a tall womens frame is 50cm. I need a 58 frame. By my calculations a 50cm frame would fit someone with a 30 inch inseam. I know a girl who is 5' and has a 28" inseam..
HOW IS THIS A TALL FRAME SIZE? HOW? HOW HOW HOW HOW?

Movie question

My mom is trying to remember the name of a movie she saw, and it's driving her crazy. It was a sniper/assassin type of movie. It had two guys and girl (whom she thinks was also a sniper), a scene where one of the guys was coming out of a bank, and a scene in a bell tower. It might have taken place in South America, although she says it could have been Europe.

Any ideas? I will be forever grateful, as my parents will be able to stop arguing and I can go to bed and stop googling things...

Edit: decided it must be Assassins...thanks!

Use By Dates!

I'm usually pretty picky with food, and when it "goes bad"... but today I drank a bottle of Coca Cola that had a Use By date of 8th February 2007.

It didn't taste too bad, just a little flatter (like Pepsi) and a lot sweeter. The only other product (other than soda) that I would probably go this far over it's Use By date is Marmite.


1. Are you normally picky about food that has passed it's Use By date?

2. Are there any exceptions to this?

3. What's the longest time after a product's Use By date that you've still thought, "Fuck it!" and eaten/drank it anyway? What was it?

4. What's your favourite non-default LJ icon that you don't often seem to use? Use it now! :)

Hi TQC! This morning I woke up early and found out that there was a fire burning in the huge parkland near my house. See news story The intersection where the fire started is about a kilometre from my house, but it has grown quickly; there are clouds of smoke, fire trucks constantly racing past and helicopters flying overhead. I need to leave for work in 20 minutes. So, TQC -

1) Have you ever had a bushfire near your house?
2) Should I not go to work *just in case*
3) Should I wake my housemates and let them know about it?
4) My washing is up on the line! Will it smell of smoke? :(

ETA: I went to work, in the end it's only 15 mins walk (7 mins run) from my house. The wind is blowing all the smoke in the direction of the university, the air is filled with ash. I'm starting to get a little nervous...

What handy tip have you tried lately that didn't work as expected?

I poured a bottle of rubbing alcohol into my gas tank. It's worked before when I had a frozen gas line. So either the problem isn't my gas line or one bottle isn't enough. Maybe I've got too much fuel in there? Going to miss class and possibly an important appointment later!

Which would you choose?

You have Friday off and you are going on a weekend vacation. Your options are to either go Thursday night at around 9:00 and pay for a hotel room that night when you aren't really going to do anything that night. But the upside of this is that you actually get to sleep. The other option is to leave the next morning at around 7:30, which means you would have to get up really, really early and even though you wouldn't waste money on a hotel room that night, you risk being tired for your first day of the trip.

Which one would you choose?

I'm leaning toward going early in the morning but I'm going with a friend who has a difficult time getting up early and I also have some sleep issues myself. We're spending Thursday night together anyway and knowing us we won't be able to force ourselves to go to bed early.

My mom just asked me what I'd like to do for my birthday.
Is 21 too old to invite a few of my aunts and family over? I'm not looking for gifts but they tend to be far more appealing to me than going out and getting completely wasted.
My mom's birthday is three days before mine, so we could say it's for both of us, but it's not really a big year for her.

Any thoughts?

What's the funniest name you've come across where the parents clearly had no idea they were giving their kid a funny name?

In the paper this morning, a dude called Lol Crawley was mentioned, but he was born before the invention of LOL, as far as the internet tells me. Also, a Danish couple with the last name Cup moved to Canada, and named their child Stanley Cup, without (apparently) any knowledge of hockey.

This is very important business TQC - I can't decide how to do my hair today. Should I rock the natural curls or go glam with bouncy straightness? Pros for curly are it's quickest, but doesn't hold up all day and I will be out all afternoon and then to an evening event and a part after. Straight will look fab all night, but it's gonna take me a good hour. I do have the time. Oh what should I do???

tl;dr

My family came to visit the Wednesday after Christmas. My 24 year old cousin took a million pictures with my DSLR. He asked me to email him the pictures and I said I would. Then he asked if he could just take the compact flash card home and he would mail it back. I was hesitant but agreed because my aunt said she would make sure he didn't lose it and she would mail it back to me.

I still do not have the card. I really wanted to get in a lot of practice with my new lens over winter break but that didn't happen because of him. Is it unreasonable for me to expect to have it by now? Should I email him or call my aunt (since she said she was going to mail it)? I don't want to seem like a bitch but I really want my card. I'm afraid he lost it. It's double the size of my other one and I had just bought it. I also have some pictures on there I really want.

What should my email say? I always over think simple emails like this, I don't know why. My dad has suggested "What have you done with my camera card, jerkface?" but I'm not sure that is the best approach.

Glass adhesive

I have a large glass desk that I've been trying to sell. I finally sell it ..and what happens?! My clumsy boyfriend accidentally hits the leg of the desk with a little too much force and now there is a crack across the corner of the desk. The desk is still in tact and the piece didn't break off. My buyer still wants the desk, crack and all, but I'm afraid to move it. The glass is probably an inch or so thick.

My question: Does anyone know of a really phenominal glass adhesive?

Do you know anyone that doesn't consider themselves physically attractive, but most people think they are? Do you believe them, or do you think they're being modest/attention whorey?

What do you think makes people see themselves differently than other people do? I always wondered if what other people see really is that different than what I see when I look in the mirror. The brain is so weird.

This question stems from a discussion about Megan Fox and how she thinks she looks like a "tranny and a man." Though in her case I think it's pretty obvious she's being an attention whore, since she said it on the Golden Globes red carpet. FYI this is Megan Fox.

I can understand looking around for ONE of those more costly items on freecycle/craigslist. I, myself, have looked around for a secondhand washer and dryer, but I didn't repost my request over and over or expect to get the highest end machines out there. Does she not get that freecycle is for getting rid of things people don't use or can't sell? If I had an extra Xbox or Car that I didn't use I'd be selling it, not giving it away!

I have some tattoos that are near my wrist and ankle, and would be visible were I to wear a short sleeve or 3/4 sleeve shirt or sheer tights/pantyhose. I am starting to interview for office jobs, and will most likely be covering the tattoos for interviews (long sleeve shirt, slacks). But I am wondering if it would be prudent for me to disclose that I have semi-visible tattoos, or should I wait until I am hired? They're nothing obtrusive or offensive (unless you are afraid of bees!), but I wouldn't want to mislead an employer. At the same time, I am wary. I've never done office work before, and don't want to start off on a bad foot.

My one tattoo right now is on my shoulder and upper arm, so it's only visible if I'm wearing a sleeveless shirt or none at all. Nonetheless, it's oriented for other people to see, as I don't really have a good angle on it.

I'm looking at a new tattoo, though: "Live, Laugh, Love" composed in smoke, on the inner part of my forearm. Even though I plan to work internationally, I'll keep it in English for the alliteration and b/c it's my natal tongue first language. I'm trying to decide which direction the words should face, though, since I want it to be both a beautiful thing for people to look at and a reminder for myself.

  • For the first assignment of the Spring semester, my US History professor asked us to write a paper about three historic characters (dead or living) that we'd like to sit down to dinner with. I chose Cleopatra, Anne Frank & Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Who would you pick?

    • Some of the submitted responses my classmates made which confuse me are: their grandmothers, 1995 Dallas Cowboys, Bob Marley, Karen Carpenter (I found this to be wildly ironic), the 1993 Buffalo Bills football team...

    I understand that many of these people are a part of history, theoretically speaking, but I mean... am I completely ridiculous for thinking that answers should be of actual historical characters? You know, people who have to do with the subject at hand...?

What was the last movie you saw at the theater? Did you like it?

I just saw My Bloody Valentine 3D and I loved it (even though I missed the first 5 or 10 minutes). The 3D effect was so much better than I expected. I was also unsure how predictable the plot would be, but it turned out that there were a few twists that made it hard to figure out.

On a scale of 1-10 how much does it annoy you when people talk during a movie (not just a whisper here or there, but constant loud talking)? When was the last time you went to a movie and people near you were talking loudly and constantly? Did they talk to the characters in the movie at all?

For me it is a 9 and the last time was today. There were some kids/teenagers (I'm not sure exactly how old, but one sounded rather young, maybe 10 or 11, possibly 12, and this is a rather gory R rated movie) six or seven seats away from me (with no one else in the row since the theater was rather empty) who talked through almost the entire movie. I wanted to smack them so much. Although, I had to laugh when I heard a boy in the group say "Ooh, run girl, run!".

I'm going through one for a job with a defense contractor and they started it November 18th and I was told 75 days give or take two weeks by my contact at the Defense Logistics Agency. I really want this job but I hate waiting for the check to be completed because it's such limbo. It feels like I sort of have the job but no, I really don't. Not until I get the paycheck anyway.

Thanks :)

TQC, what is the most inconsiderate thing your roommate has done lately? (if you have one)

Mine left campus for the weekend, but she didn't think to turn off her alarm clock. Now it's just buzzing nonstop.

edit: The RA changed his mind and decided to come turn the alarm off tonight. I'm grateful.

Whats a good way to get the cigarette smell out of a car?

ETA- The lease on my car is up on Tuesday. We're returning my car to the dealership on Monday. I've been smoking in it for the past 4 years. I don't think a couple shots of perfume is going to help this.

Have you ever known anyone who was unable to be happy for another person? Why do you think this is? My ex was never happy for me. When I got into college, when I got promotions, passed certifications for work etc the news was always met with him saying "Oh...ok" or some other similar statement.


Also, to continue on with the ex theme...

My ex is lying about being miserable. He's pretending to have no friends (which I know is not true), he's claimed to have gotten a DUI (but there are certain pieces of evidence that lead me to believe that that may not be true), he's said that he goes home and gets drunk every night but his sister says that's a lie...wtf? I can't even fathom why he would lie to me about doing poorly in life. Aren't you supposed to lie for the better when you make contact with an ex? Or maybe, not at all?


Also, have you ever known a playmate? A girl I went to high school with was a playmate a couple years after she graduated (I was a freshman and she was a senior).

TQC, I am desperate for chocolate but I don't have any. D: On a scale of 1-10 (10 being OMFG WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU NOOOOOOO DON'T DO IT), how gross would it be if I put some mint fudge ice cream topping on some vanilla yogurt (not frozen yogurt... just regular vanilla yogurt)?

What is the best wine for someone who does likes it more on the sweet side than really dry and bitter?

Have you ever had nail polish fall off of your nail completely? Is this possible?

I painted my nails on monday. Today I was driving home and discovered one of my fingers was completely without nail polish. It's my left pointer finger so I don't see how I could have missed it, but it just falling off (and not leaving any residue) doesn't make much sense. None of the polish on my other nails has even chipped.

Edit: It wasn't cheap nail polish. I'm kind of worried that I skipped it and have been walking around with all but one of my nails painted.
