Thesis money

A good friend of mine has asked me to read her thesis. She wants to pay me for my time and effort.

If you had to read ~100,000 words (9 chapters, each about 50-70 pages), what would you charge for your services?

ETA: No critiquing/feedback, just check her grammar/spelling as English is not her first language.

I'm bored, TQC, and itching for a good MMORPG.

Have any recommendations for free ones?

How about free online games in general, if you can't think of any MMO's? What are you addicted to lately?

shit of a salesgirl

my grandmother commented that the porcelain bowls were dirty and the salesgirl gave her a blank 'so what ya want me to do??' look. following that, a (cute) guy came over to browse something. she immediately put on her ^_^ face and asked him whether he needed help. AND continued to elaborate the function of that product.

what was the worst customer service you've ever experienced? or provided, if you dare. haha :P

why is it socially acceptable to hassle smokers about being potentially killed by cigs, but it's NOT socially acceptable to hassle fat people about potentially being killed by food? the logic is essentially the same. and seriously, if one more person tells me "smoking kills" i'm gonna flip out.

eta: im not talking about second hand smoke. im talking about people who randomly find out that you smoke and are like "omg yr gonna die.. thats soo bad for you.. yr gross"

what is my cat saying?

why does my cat meow like she is in pain or really pissed off when i go to touch her and then immediately start purring? what is her deal? is she trying to tell me something?

1. I was watching the English version of Law & Order today which stars Jamie Bamber. Now Jamie Bamber is also on Battlestar Galactica where he plays with a fake American-like accent. Honestly, I prefer his fake accent to his real one.

My question to you, which actor or actress out there sounds better with their fake accent compared to their real one?

Which actor/actress were you shocked to hear was putting on a fake accent all along?

2. I've been following a few of my favorite interesting writers and actors on Twitter just to see what they have to say. Turns out, not much which has left me disappointed. This reminds me of the old saying, "Never meet your idols."

Have you ever been disappointed by your idol? Who was it? What happened?

Solve a family crisis!

OK, it's not that bad- but here's the skinny:

I'm starting university in the fall, and am in need of a laptop- my home computer is 6+ years old, and I'd like to be able to bring my work with me, rather than having to save it on a flash drive or anything like that.  My Mom (who is helping me out financially a little bit, but not enough to have a say in things like this) is trying to convince me that I don't NEED a full size laptop, and that I would be just fine with a netbook (like this one)

Now, from what I can figure out, they're SORT OF what I'm looking for, but I've seen conflicting reviews, and I can't seem to find one with Word or other Office products.

So, the questions:
-does anyone have one of these pint-sized computers?  Do you like it?
-is it possible to get Word & Excel on one, and if so, would it eat up all my memory?
-if you think I should go with a full size laptop, do you have any recommendations, or things I should look for? I've never owned one before, so I have no clue.  My budget is around $1000.  Is this reasonable, or should I expect to pay more?

I have this friend. Or rather, I had this friend. She was my best friend in high school, we were inseparable. After high school, she went to college in a different state and just... I dunno, changed, I guess. She stopped responding to my attempts to keep in touch. She never told me when she'd be home so I wouldn't know she was here to hang out. Back around last November, she contacted me, said she was sorry for being a bitch, said she was coming home over Christmas break and was looking forward to seeing me. Christmas break came and... nothing. I've felt very hurt and angry about the whole thing.

Her birthday is tomorrow. Should I bother wishing her happy birthday on facebook? Part of me wants to write something kinda passive aggressive, like "Hey, I'd like to wish you happy birthday but apparently I don't exist, so I can't," while another part says I shouldn't be a bitch and just say "Happy Birthday!" and still another part says to just ignore her birthday like she ignores me. I don't know. :/ The entire situation makes me really really sad.

I want a pocket-sized gadget with a non-terrible calendar system that will make noise at me to remind me of appointments and so on. My current cell phone has a calender with a UI so bad that using it is more trouble than it's worth. iPhones and Blackberries seem to have what I need, but they are rather expensive (especially once you consider the monthly plan, which is a lot more than I'm paying for my cell service now). An iPod touch might work, but I'm concerned about the price and the apparent lack of speakers loud enough to alert me of anything.

Does anyone have any tips? Or any idea of what I'm looking for?

one. i just got a jury duty form in the mail. after i filled it out, i read these directions, "for your convenience, you may use this same sheet to return your questionnaire. just fold flap B over the top of flap A so the Jury Board mailing address appears in the sender area and place postage in the upper right corner. please tape to seal, affix postage and drop in the mailbox. no extra envelope needed."

so, not only am i most likely going to be summoned for jury duty, but I HAVE TO PAY POSTAGE TO SEND IT BACK TO THEM. when's the last time that you were annoyed with "the man"?

two. if you don't care about that, what songs do you think are overdone at karaoke bars? it seems that EVERY TIME i go, someone sings "what i got", "date rape", hero", "sweet caroline" and the like.

i always try my best to sing songs that people usually don't sing, but i'd love for some suggestions. my favorites are "it's tricky", "if i had a hammer", "hurts so good", "lip gloss", "just what i needed", things of that nature. so, i like some rap songs, lots of singer-songwriter stuff and some folk. i think tonight i might do "king of wishful thinking" because it's SUCH a good song that i can't handle not singing it.

three. if you don't care about that either, do you have a meal that, when you're done eating it, it feels like a rock (a good rock) in your belly and you end up feeling satisfied? think like thanksgiving dinner but something that you can make every day. those are my favorite kind of meals, and i'd like to make them more often. my favorite contains mashed potatoes. what's in your dish?

the front door to this office locks and people ring the buzzer and i hit numbers on my phone to open the door. yesterday i tried letting a guy in twice and my phone said the door was open but he couldn't handle it. i could also see him through a window. will you tell me something hilariously awkward that happens to you at work?

I have gotten the wife to listen to Steven King's The Stand while we are out and about. We listen to a little each day, and have been for the last few days.

completely hypothetical; I have just been wondering this lately

So you're innocently making internet friends on livejournal and at some point you request a few of your closer friends as friends on facebook. You haven't seen their photos before, and they have been vague as to where they live.

After they add you on facebook you are shocked to notice that (OH NO!!!) they are an old teacher of yours, or an old friend.

Would it be worse if it was a teacher or an old friend or something else? Assume that they are someone you really wouldn't have wanted reading your lj from how you know/feel about them IRL.

Has anyone ruined a movie for you? My boyfriend once watched Trainspotting for 2 months straight every freaking night.During these hellish nights I'd try to give him hints by saying "OH WOW I HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS I WONDER WHAT HAPPENS." and I'd always walk in the room and sit down at the most awkward parts of the movie. Like the shit blanket part, the toliet part and the soccer game sex video mix up part.
He has killed a lot of movie enjoyment for me.

There's a guy I'm pretty fond of.  We're two years apart in age and I didn't really think it's a big deal because really isn't.  However, I just learned that he has a younger sister - who is my age.  In fact, she's in some of my classes.  She's also bigger than I am (not width-wise, just taller and skinnier).
EDIT: Although I must admit, we're nothing alike.  But I do sound and look much, much younger than she does because I'm so damn little.

a strange find.

there's a grocery store near my house that has two parking lots: one in the front and one in the back. nobody ever goes to the one in the back, but the other night my brother and i drove back there and found something really weird and eerie.

there was huge pile of...crap just laying on the concrete. there was a mattress, some furniture, bags and bags of clothing, shoes, wall hangings, books, boxes of bootleg dvds, and some photo albums. it was the strangest thing ever. it had obviously been there for quite some time because a lot of it was dirty and water-damaged.

from looking through the photo albums, we were able to figure out who they belonged to. there was also a wedding invitation, an obituary of the woman's husband, and an appointment card for a psychiatrist. the photos were from the 80's, but the appointment was for 2007.

it was seriously the most bizarre thing. my mom thinks that maybe the woman died and her relatives had nothing to do with her stuff so they just dumped it there. i guess that's plausible, but it's really hard for me to believe that a woman who must have been in her mid-60's owned tons of shitty bootleg dvds, bags of men's clothing, and multiple pairs of sneakers. maybe the stuff belongs to multiple people..?

anyway, tqc -- why do you think that stuff was there? who did it belong to? how did it get there?

Have you ever considered moving half-way across the country for no good reason other than you need a change?
Will you give a shout-out to a favorite member here?

Tell me if I'm overreacting...

So I look at my boyfriend's new friends on myspace. I notice that he adds a 14 year old "scene girl" (what he's into.... and what i'm not)
I notice another girl, I click on her pictures, she has one photo of her being really cool smoking a cigarette and holding up her tee shirt so you can see her whole, very thin, stomach. He leaves a comment on this picture that says "you tiny, girl"

... keep in mind that he did this to me a few years ago and i got all giddy and thought he was the cutest thing ever.( it did not tell me i was tiny, it was just some sort of compliment) would you be pissed or what?!

I have the hiccups, and I've been having them off and on for the last four or five hours. Give me ideas to get rid of them. We don't have any peanut butter, though, so eating a spoon full of that (my normal method) won't work.

When was the last time you had hiccups? Are they normally quiet or really loud?

1. Say you work in a department with only 3 or 4 other people, one of them is the boss. Whenever a birthday comes around, the others split the cost of a cake and you all have it after lunch. Now say you are about to celebrate your first birthday at this job. What would you think/do, if your boss tells you there will be no cake on your birthday this year because she miscarried on that day and it's too painful to celebrate?

2. I am 24 and have never owned a cell phone! Can you believe it? What would you suggest I get when I finally crack (which may be this weekend)

1) Does it bother you when an artist has songs that sound similar to another song?

2) What is something you read in highschool that you had to re-read in college? I'm dreading the 100+ pages of Romeo + Juliet I have to read by tomorrow.

3) Have you ever slept with a guest/client from your professional job? I work for a hotel and it's only happened once but it was amazing, omg.

Do you like my icon?

Does soap expire?
My mom found this hand soap in our hall closet and it says "Expires 08/07"

Do you say "wtf?" and "lol" irl?
I say WTF when I'm around my parents or grandma.
I also say BUH when I run into something.

I haven't heard a peep from my friend since she apparently lost her job two weeks ago. I started worrying about her when she hooked up with this loser jerk she's been supporting since October. He attempted to cut her off from all of her friends, but we emailed each other every day at work. Now that she's gone missing, I'm not sure what to do. She's not answering her cell or home phones, emails, or texts. Her parents haven't heard from her either, but they've always been pretty distant. I haven't driven the 57 miles to the house she's been paying the rent for in the boonies, but I can this weekend.

TQC... if this was your friend, what would you do?

basically, i have this friend. she's a good friend and we've been hanging out for about a year, though we've known each other since we were about 7. we get along very well, have fun, etc. but she keeps saying these catty things to me once in a while, and i seriously can't figure out where they're coming from. like, stuff about guys, something that happened in high school that's kind of a sore subject, a friend of ours i had a falling out with.

i don't think she would see me as any kind of a threat. she's more attractive than i am and guys really dig her, she's always getting hit on while i never do. neither of us are in school at the moment or in competitive fields.

where the are these comments coming from? why?

Ladies, what would you want a guy to do in this situation?

My Cultural Anthropology class started on Monday and today I recently started talking to this girl. We were making small talk throughout class, both of us were laughing, and I walked her back to her car after which she appreciated, we hugged each other, and said goodbye. Mind you this is the first time we have ever talked, I just want to know if there is anything in general I should/n't do/say next time we talk. I want to eventually ask her to get a bite to eat or something of that nature. I'll make sure to sit next to her next class I'm just stupid and am probably not being myself because all I can think about is how beautiful this girl is. The entire length of class. Help, please?
