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?
For those of you that use friends-filters: what is the funniest/weirdest name for one of your filters? If you dare to be so bold, what is it for?

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.

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?

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?
also, I just spent like 5 minutes trying to find the LJ FAQs but by the time I pulled it up, I cant remember what I wanted to know. what do I want to fix/learn TQC?

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.
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?
What's your favorite video game?
TQC, what are your favorite songs about numbers/math?
(It counts if it just happens to have a number in the title, or even in the artist's name. I'm trying to get two hours worth of music, so I'll take whatever I can get.)
Have you ever had a tonsil stone?
Tee Cue See, I am signing up for a free trial of Netflix. Which plan should I go with? I was thinking of the $13.99 one where you get unlimited rentals, with 2 DVDs at a time. Which one do you have? Do you like Netflix? What movies do I need to see RIGHT NOW?
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.
When was the last time you thought "Wow, my life is so awesome!"? Why is that?
What did you do on your birthday?
TQC, how do you feel about band tattoos? Love them, hate them, are they okay under certain circumstances? I'm thinking of getting a pretty tiny one on the inside of my right ring finger when I'm 18. Just keep in mind I'll probably get it anyway...
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.
Which Latin phrase would be best?

I quit my job in November and have not had a cold since! Before that I was getting at least 2 a month. I'm also doing much better in school.
This is an argument that my mother and I always have: do you think that boy cats or girl cats are better behaved?
She insists that our girl is "nicer" than our boys were (I loved them anyway), but I insist that she is naughtier. Thoughts?
EDIT: Just to let you guys know, I do know each cat is special. ^_^ It's more of an overall question from your personal experience.

1. Can you argue (with evidence/facts/sources) for or against donating your hair to Locks of Love?
2. If you argue against, are you aware of any organizations which may be a better choice?
I'm just curious about the matter, I've seen both sides presented.
EDIT - I'm asking specifically about the organization "Locks of Love" vs the act of actually donating hair, I'm all for donating!

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.
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?
Has anyone else watched "Igor" ?
I think most of the characters physical appearances are very similar to other characters in animated movies. I'm wondering if anyone else thinks the same?

My apologies if this has shown up here already but...
A woman in my province (Penny Boudreau) just plead guilty to killing her daughter (Karissa Boudrea) last year. She says it was because her boyfriend gave her an ultimatum. Either she chooses the relationship, or her daughter. So she killed the daughter to be with her boyfriend.
Do you think the boyfriend should be charged for his part in this?
Would it bother you if your SO wore a piece of jewelry given to them by one of their exes?
I want to wear a necklace (St. Christopher medal on a white gold chain) my ex-boyfriend gave me tonight but I'm not sure if it would bother my new guy or not. eta: I'm not going to draw any attention to the necklace or be like, "OH YEAH I GOT THIS FROM MY EX" but I'm afraid he might assume.

In what order are you supposed to read the Ender's Game book series?
I've read Ender's game and just bought Shadow Puppets only to realize they have about 11 in the series,is that right? Or are some of them short stories?
I use Secret Clinical, and it says you are supposed to put it on before bed. I usually shower before bed and put it on, but what would happen if you showered in the morning? Would it be absorbed enough to be effective? Or would it get washed off?
Also, the skin on my face has been REALLY DRY all week. All my makeup is flaking off. :( My normal moisturizing/exfoliating routines aren't cutting it, so my friend said I should put vitamin e oil on my face. Yay? Nay? Any other suggestions?

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!
What do you think you smell like?
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.

So my plans for tonight have changed and I'm a bit stuck for dinner plans.
I really want some homemade macaroni cheese my mum gave me. Alas it was in the freezer. About 10 minutes ago I stuck it in a basin of cold water to help it defrost. How long should I let it defrost before attempting to capture, cook and eat it?
Serious and non-serious answers welcome, I'm going to be very bored tonight.
what program do you use/recommend to download torrents?
Have you ever worked a full-time job while getting your master's degree (if you have your master's degree)?
I am going to be in a master's program which gives me 4 graduate classes in the summer (2 in June and 2 in July). I still need money, but my friend told me it's ridiculous to try to maintain a full-time job in graduate school.
My grandpa has now given me 3 car visor things that have an angel and say "granddaughter please drive safely". Is he trying to send me some kind of message about my driving or is he just old and forgetful?

I was watching Animal Cops on Animal Planet yesterday and my roommate told me she didn't believe in humane euthanization because they don't do it to humans. I told her that those animals are in such suffering it's the nicest thing you can do for them. She responded that she'd be the pet store owner who'd take home all the animals who were susposed to be humanely euthanized.

Did you ever wonder why Barbie and Ken didn't have nipples or did you just accept that they were dolls and that's how dolls were?
TQC! Should I go to Coachella this year?
I've always wanted to go and money is not really a concern. I live in NJ and I've never traveled alone before so that kind of worries me. I told my dad I might go and he said he would help me find a flight, hotel, and rental car, but I get the feeling he would be pissed if I went.
what do you daydream about?
If your significant other proclaimed to you that "your ass is getting bigger," as in your bottom sticks out more than it did before, would you take that as a compliment or criticism? Or would they just be pointing out trufax? If you don't have an SO make up an answer.
If you were of the opposite gender, what would you want your name to be?

WOULD IT BE AWKARD? or would it be jokes?
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.

Should I have chicken with lemon and cilantro (tikka masala, medium spicy) sauce or cardamom and tomato (rogan josh, rather hot) sauce for dinner?
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?

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?

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.
