So I'm almost done assembling my care package for my friend in Africa, and now I'm working on a folder of important news articles, with less important as well. I have the inauguration covered (Aretha's hat, too), as well as Jizz in my Pants lyrics (so you get the spectrum of stuff I'm sending). What are some major news articles you think should be included? What are some not-so-major but still wildly popular tidbits?

Have you ever noticed that on fictional television shows, people never say "goodbye" when they hang up the phone?  Pay attention next time.  They actors almost never do it, they just hang up.  It's weird.

my boyfriend really wants a TV and he found the one he wants on sale for $379 at Target.
the problem is, he was barely able to get enough money to pay for college and he knows there's no way his mom will let him buy the TV (she has control of the money in his savings account).

i have about $550 worth of a financial aid refund.
should i buy the TV for him?

A few years back, my friend Amy and I had a huge falling out. As a result of this, her best friend Jody (who I was friends with before I met Amy) cut off all contact with me. I never had any problem with Jody and definitely never asked her to choose between us (although I suspect Amy did). The other day I found out that Jody was recently married and I would like to send her a note of congratulations. What do you think TQC? Would this be a bad idea?

Hi guys, i am curious about something. 

Would you live for a year with no income, working as a volunteer virtually full time if you thought after a year you would be able to get a well paid job?

or

Would you work part time in a job you enjoy but dont want to do forever, getting paid minimum wage, hoping to save enough to go travelling for a while?

I was listening to a Prince song, and when I heard these lyrics:
"The arms of Orion that's where I wanna be
Since U've been gone
I've been searching 4 a lover
In the Sea of Tranquility
I'm drowning without U here, my dear "
I wondered, do you think he used the term "sea of tranquility" as a metaphor because it sounds pretty, or do you think he was actually talking about staring at the moon?

dress suggestions!

My dad is taking me out to dinner for my birthday (which was a month ago, but twatever) tonight and I'd like to wear a dress or a skirt. The problem is that it's cold and snowing and the ground is covered in like six inches of slush. What sort of dress and shoes shall I buy so my leggies don't freeze and my toes aren't soaked?

We're having dinner at a tapas place where the dress ranges from jeans to dresses, so I'm looking for something casual yet pretty.

Baby names

Let's say you have a name already picked out for your yet-to-be-born-or-even-conceived child. You've loved this name for years and you absolutely have to use it. You find out that your SO hates it and under no circumstances would want to give a child this name. Is this a deal breaker for you?

Do you believe that the mother should get the final say in the name because she carried the child for 9 months, or that both parents should have equal say?

Twilight rants?

A friend just started reading Twilight and she loves it. I must nip this into a bud ASAP. I remember reading a couple of epic really well-written funny anti-Twilight essays on LJ (about how Edward is actually a creepy controlling guy and the fucked up gender dynamics in the novels). Does anyone have any good links to rants of this nature? Help, seriously, she needs to be educated.

If not, here's a question for you: How old is too old for people to be reading YA fiction? (Unless it's Harry Potter I guess, that's different)

ETA: People, she asked for links. I'm not cruelly trying to take away her one and only joy in life for my own twisted pleasure. Also, I like YA, I'm not judging those who like it. But I do judge those who think Twilight is good YA.

EDIT: You wouldn't know the tattoo was of a band unless I told you. I think that's why I like it so much...it's not all "omg I love this band" and potentially embarrassing.

When you grocery shop, do you have to start from a certain point and work in a particular direction? For example, I have to start at the produce section and work towards the pharmacy or I get frustrated and forget things.

I'm wondering if that's a little neurotic.

Lipstick

I never, ever wear lipstick (well, when I lived with my mom I tried a few of hers for fun sometimes) because I don't like the way it looks on me.

However, I want to try experimenting with lipsticks now. I know this is probably a stupid question, but what is the difference in quality between cheap and expensive lipsticks? I'm not going to spend money on something that will probably look bad on me, but besides not easily rubbing off and being somewhat moisturizing what qualities should I look for in a lipstick?

Can we compile a list of things that only happen in cartoons? Ok, lets!

1. Mice live in perfectly arched holes in the wall with cotton reel furniture and matchbox beds.

2. Characters run through walls and closed doors and leave perfect cut out shapes of their bodies in them.

3. Characters run off cliffs and only notice after a few seconds of running through thin air.

Now your turn!

Help me decide

I'm too fucking tired and stressed out to answer this question or not. And it's kinda fun when people on the internet tell you what you should do.

My boyfriend and I host game nights at our house Friday nights. They show up at eight, he doesn't get home until seven-ish and then we have to get the house ready. But I swear to god I am going to bust some nuts if I don't get laid.

So do we have sex anyway and risk being bad hosts by not having the house picked up, or do we clean the house and stave off hormones for another day?

ETA: Quickie has been chosen as the answer to this problem! Fuck my friends, I haven't had sex in two weeks and I WANT TO GET SOME! The house can be messy for a few hours.

I am so in love with the Tiny Man (eta: aka Little Green Man) rule. The card-puller chooses someone who then gets a Tiny Man who sits on the rim of their cup/can. While that rule is still in play, If they forget to take their Tiny Man off and put him somewhere before they drink, then -- oh shit son! -- they have to fish their Tiny Man out of the drink, put him somewhere safe, and drink again. This can be a hazardous rule, both to them and their Tiny Man.

Samsung Propel/LG Vu

My husband and I are getting new phones tomorrow and now I am having an internal debate. I was all set to get myself a Propel and he was thinking of getting one, too. But then he asked to play with the Vu in store and now thinks he wants one of those. This, of course, makes me debate my choice. I like that the Propel has the navigation option since we don't have an in-car GPS (the Vu does not have this). But since he's all OH TOUCHSCREEN!111! I wonder if I should get it, too. Even though I don't like smudgey crap and know I'd be wiping it every time I used it.

SO... If you have either (or somehow have had both) tell me all you love, hate, etc about these phones. AND GO!

PS - We won't really be using the internet a lot.

In every class I've had since starting college some annoying girl finds some way to tell the entire class she is a vegetarian. 50% of the time she also informs us she eats fish.

Have you found this to be the case in your classes?

Okay, tell me if I am being a jerk and assuming the worst of people...

So, I went to this take out place and ordered lunch. They made it and I picked it up and took it home. I payed by credit card. The total on the receipt I signed was $10.14. I didn't leave a tip since it was a take out order. I just marked a line like so ---- through the tip line and put down my final total as $10.14 and signed it.

Cut to my credit card statement. On it, for the place I ordered lunch from, was $14.14. Apparently, I had given the woman a $4 tip, which I didn't. Did she purposefully steal from me or was it a mistake?

So should I go back with my copy of the receipt and my statement and get my $4 back? Should I take a moral stand because it's wrong to steal? $4 is two gallons of gas! Or should I let it go since she might have kids, ferrets or a burgeoning drug habit?

How do you keep organized? Do you use a paper planner (like a calendar) or an electronic one? Can you recommend an inexpensive (I know that's relative, but whatever inexpensive is to you) PDA or electronic organizer for me?

If you use a calendar/planner, do you prefer small ones or planners/calendars that are big enough for you to write 4+ lines worth of material in them?

Careers, and the economy.

I've yet to go to college and I don't know my career direction.

What I'm worried about is with this economic downturn, it seems like many careers are becoming unprofitable.


Does anyone have advice for a young guy that doesn't know what to do in this world? (Besides suicide. Don't be an ass.)

I just signed into my Gmail account to find that I have two sets of LJ email notifications from 8:20ish to 9:46. When I read one, they both show as read. I don't want to delete one set of them and delete both by accident. Is this a sign of the apocalypse or just Gmail being glitchy? =/

I was at the liquor store today with some friends and I saw sweet tea vodka. This sounds like the best thing ever. I didn't have any money on me to get it, but I want to try it. Has anyone else had it, if so, is it good?

What was the last alcohol you tried that was new, did you like it?

Have you ever talked to someone and knew it was the last time that you would see or talk to them?

I was sitting on the train thinking of all of these people who I really doubt I will ever see again. Isn't that strange?

Is there anyone from your past that you would like to talk again or have thought about talking to again? Is there any story/explanation behind it?

Have you ever laughed so hard in a dream that you woke yourself up laughing?
-I did this last night and it was seriously one of the most bizarre things I've ever experienced.

What about crying?
-This I've done but it's not as much fun.

And unrelated: What do you think about Valentines Day? Like it? Hate it? Could care less?

1. Why is so dangerous for the super obese to go under general anesthetics?

2. What would be a suitable kitty booster chair?

I am thinking of putting kitty on a 3 meal a day diet where he eats while I do. Normally he hops up on the table from his chair, but this way he could eat off the table from his chair. He was drinking some chicken broth on it just earlier.
