I'm watching "don't tell mom the babysitter's dead"
I'm writing a descriptive piece for class and can't think of anything except for Zeus but I can't seem to find whether he was punished or not. What's happening at this point in my writing is that a statue is symbolizing infidelity...I usually think of statues that are of Greek & Roman gods/goddesses, since there seem to be more statues of them than any other time period. Eh, this doesn't really make much sense, does it.

This blister has become hard and it hurts. It hurts depending on how I step/walk. It's kinda formed a bubble under the skin. Is this a different kind of blister that I maybe have never encountered? Is it normal for a blister to last this long?
I tried taking a picture.. but the angle is a little awkward.. but I guess if you guys wanna see it... I can try.

Also, On the side of my neck, a little pimple looking thing has formed. It looks like a whitehead and looks like it has pus. Its not as easy to pop though.

My current sharehouse has lost its lease, and I'm looking for somewhere to live before we have to hand in the keys. I've got an interview for another sharehouse later this week, but because I sort of got this place based on knowing one of the existing flatmates, I'm a little worried that I don't know much about the etiquette of sharehouse interviews. Do you think I need to bring along some sort of application? Can you give me any tips on what you think I should do? I want to come across as the relaxed, laidback person I generally am, but I'm pretty anxious about the impending potential homelessness.

I want to be able to create or even download a ringtone onto a memory stick and upload it into my phone. I have a Sony Ericsson, and no texting/media package.
Does anyone know of a site that allows you to buy and download ringtones onto your computer and load it onto a memory card? Or is there a program that I can download that will allow me to do this by myself? Is there a certain format that it has to be in to work?

My first itunes purchase was Fastball's "The Way."
My boyfriend received a credit card in the mail. He read the paperwork and it said the activation and other fees would only be charged if the card is activated. He didn't want the card so he cut it up and threw it away (never activated it). For over a month now, the credit card company has been calling both our house phone and cell phone 5 times a day each trying to get him to activate a card with them (no mention of owing any money on the card they sent him). He has told them "No, I don't want you card" 5 or 6 times now but they keep calling. Can he threaten legal action for phone harassment since they aren't calling to collect money and our home phone is on the Missouri do not call list? Or is there some crazy loophole that makes it legal for them to do this?
What book(s) are you currently reading?
I have *maybe* 10 to 20 minutes of prep time tonight (between when I get home and when my raid starts) although it can be on the stove/in the oven for as long as necessary. Sandwiches are of course an option, but it's farking cold outside and I demand warmth with my dinner.
This pretty much limits things to boxed stuff, frozen stuff and pasta, and combinations thereof. I am tired of my usual combinations. So, what are some good throw-together meals that you guys like?
Do you know who I'm talking about?

Marni (my best friend)'s b-day is tomorrow, and I'd like to go to Minneapolis for it, but she didn't come down for mine this year (even though she promised to) She REALLY wanted me to come when we last talked about it but didn't beg me to come. Joe(my boyfriend and the person I'd stay with) is super stressed and has like TONS Of homework. So I'm not sure if I should go to make Marni happy or not because Joe has so much work to do.
What should I do!?
Was it a ticket or a scratch off????

Now there is another couple in here, and the man, who is rather tall, is wearing long pants, but has them too big, so he's holding them up, in what I consider a semi-obscene gesture. Why do guys do this? The only thing I can think of is they're afraid their penis is going to run away, but I don't think that's physically possible.
for the above, nonsrs answers only, plz. for below, non srs if you want but uh, w/e.

A while ago, work sent a bunch of us to a "customer service training session". Whatever, it was sort of fun and got us out of the office for a couple days, all good.
A little backstory: the majority of us there were office types. There were a few of the factory supervisors there, too. One of these guys is an older gentleman who goes by the name of Nacho. Seriously. He is Mexican, and his real name is Ignacio. Oh, and we had to make big name cards that were clearly visible to the presenters, and "Nacho" is what was on his card.
Ok, so....the lady was jibber-jabbering away, and pointed to Nacho to have him answer something. She asked "What's your name?" before she started, to get all touchy-feely. He clearly said "Nacho", to which she replied "No, really...what's your name?" He was rather taken aback, and repeated, with emphasis, "NACHO!"
Her attitude when she asked him what his name was again was of the "You shouldn't let these people insult and degrade you that way..." variety.
Do you think it was rude of her to assume that he was called Nacho in a demeaning manner? Do you think people should be called what they want to be called?
Nacho was offended by her attitude, as were most of us there. He got the nickname "Nacho" a long time ago and loves it.

Is it a requirement to do something funky with your appearance before you become too old and/or ugly to get away with it?
What have you done that is "funky" (ie piercings in untraditional places, crazy hair colours, really edgy hair cuts etc)
I want to do something like this, but since I feel I can't really pull it off, I want it to still be "pretty". Any suggestions?
Is this natural or am I doing it wrong? Is there a way to get rid of/avoid the shininess? It's not like an oily shine, but... it doesn't seem natural.
Another question? Does anyone have experience with Bare Minerals AND another type of mineral powder? Is there anything out there that's better?

If someone was very compatible with you, but you will only meet them once in your life, how likely do you think it is that you could have a good long distance relationship? (Ok this is basically the same as the above with an added real life meet.)
If technology had evolved to such a point that your brain could be intimately wired into someone else's (e.g. feeling their emotions), do you think you could have a good relationship with someone like this?
I WANT SOME AWESOME MUGS. What is an awesome super large mug? What is an awesome mug with a 3D design? WHAT ABOUT OTHER AWESOME DRINK STYLE THINGS?
EDIT: BACONNAISE?!?! Is it good? Does it really taste like bacon? I am skeptical since it is vegetarian.
If I'm looking forward to something (like moving in a month), I always worry I'm going to die before I get to the date. Or that my friend who I'm moving in with will die. Mostly me dying, though.
I was fishing today, and I ended up stabbing my middle finger with a used hook, up to the barb. It was a good sized hook, bass fishing sized. Anyway, I had been trying to thread a grass shrimp onto it and it moved (I thought it was dead) and I jerked and the hook sunk in.
I pulled it out very carefully, and, worried there were pieces of anything, I sucked on the wound. I held ice from the bait bag (separate from the bait itself, but they did smell a little fishy) to the wound until it stopped bleeding. As soon as I was home I soaked it in rubbing alcohol.
There is a little bump around the entry/exit wound, and it's a tad tender and swollen. It is the same color and only slightly warmer than the rest of my fingers.
Is this simply from trauma? Should I cut into the wound a little to ensure there is nothing in there? Should I take anything? It doesn't hurt. I have I doctors appointment tomorrow for something else and I haven't had a tetanus shot since middle school (I'm 20 now) but I have a fear of needles. Should I say something? The hook was old and had been used before and on that day. Should I pack it with ice? Should I put more alcohol on it? Help me, Dr. TQC!

My family has always been invited to this kickass Superbowl party for the last seven years or so - plenty of good food and lots available to drink. When my husband asked what we could bring this year, the host said "be creative" and that's it. These people are so generous and put so much work into making this a fun party for everyone, I really want to make something especially delicious to take - if it's in a fun party-type theme, so much the better.
So, can you help me out with ideas for THE best foods you've ever had at or made for a party? Please?

I like a lot of music featuring female vocalists, and generally the only types of music I like male vocals for are hardcore and ska, and I don't listen to MUCH of that.
Anyway, I like Ani Difranco, Enya, Splashdown, Bikini Kill (and surprisingly I'm not remotely feminist)
I guess I just kind of want up-beat female vocals.
