I watched this horribly sad anime movie in 2007 about a girl who had to go on this space mission, and left her boyfriend behind. They communicated via text, and he kept getting older and older while she waited for texts back. Finally, I think they both die in the end? (He of old age, she from whatever space battle it was) DOES ANYONE KNOW WTF THIS THING IS???
In other less annoying news, what was the last great book/story you read? I'm getting into Quiroga right now myself.

Every time I ask a question I end up asking one that has two very opinionated sides. I appreciate how strongly you all argue for what you believe in and I've been delighted to read all of your thoughts. But I'd like to ask that this time, there is no debate. If you are a firm believer in everyone having the right to do this, great, that's your opinion. But it's bothering me, so I'd appreciate answers on what to do to make it stop rather than 'just let them do it, legalize it, okay?'
Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go.
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
Is fair and wise and good and gay.

Some of you remember from Friday that I was having computer problems, my dad took it to a coworker who fixed it for $100, he ended up having to start it new so I have to put stuff back on my computer, and I need to ask him how to get onto our wireless but it works and he put some new programs on there I didn't have-he also put Windows XP on where I had Vista before. Was/is it a good deal?

What should I put on my list of crap I want for a wedding? You know the wedding gifts people get? I don't know what to put on there, and when I suggested we just don't make one Chris said "Free stuff! C'mon!" and my married friend said "Put a bunch of expensive crap on there and see if anyone buys you any of it" But really I'm a simple person and I would dig on like a best buy gift card. What should I do? What did you put on your wedding lists? How much of the stuff did you get?
Why is it when I'm in the tub my hands float? Do your hands float?
Do you like Taco Bell? What do you normally get from there?
Why is PetSmart being lame? I put in an application like a million years ago and I have been bugging them and doing all the right stuff. What the fuck, TQC? I desperately need a job and I know I can do the work at PetSmart easily. I'm totally qualified for any job there. I worked at PetCo for a year so I have good experience in the field. Where else should I apply? I am great with a computer but I have no office experience. I type 63 WPM. That's good, right?
How can I keep myself from feeling rejected by these people not hiring me/not calling me back/so on?
My cat is mean and aggressive without reason. I was asleep and he jumped up and bit me hard enough to break the skin on my forehead. I have scars all over the place on my arms and legs from him attacking. I've had him since the second he was born, and I took utmost care of him. Why does he do this? What can I do to make him stop? He was fixed when he was 5 months. I wanted to wait until he was 6 months but he was a big boy and I spotted him humping my sheets so I got him fixed right then. So I know it's not some weird un-neutered male thing.

A few weeks back, there was a post in this community about a girl who couldn't get a hold of her best friend and had no way of contacting anyone in his area. Was there an update about this? I hope her and her friend are okay. Posts like those make me sad.

2. What are you looking forward to?
1. I'm sad because my ipod is officially dead/broken/gone to heaven :( The Genius's at the Apple store declared it at 8:23 last night.
2. The weekend, seeing my SO for the 1st time since Jan 30th, and having a weekend at the water parks and hopefully working out what's been troubling us for the past month.
I had a big brainstorm a few days ago while in the shower (seems to be where I get my best ideas). So I plan to do a pretty grand art project but need used, expired gift cards. Does anyone have any that they would like to mail to me? I can msg you with my address. Alternatively, does anyone know how I can solicit a shit-ton of cards without randomly posting to LJ communities?
You've been finding yourself sick a lot lately, throwing up. You go to the doctor, and your doctor tells you that you're pregnant (if you're single, just pretend you have a SO). "Not only are you pregnant, but you're carrying quintuplets!" Considering however and whatever you're doing in your life right now, what will you do?
I'd like to start using my laptop again, but nothing I tried worked :(

TL;DR- Judge confiscated licence at traffic court, no idea where I go from here.
This is what I need to say:
The article goes on to say that "A standard blood gas machine will not detect methemoglobin."
Should the "A" be capitalized? Or should I make it lowercase and like this: "a standard blood gas..." But then that's not right because in the original article, it was capitalized. Or should I put brackets around the lowercase a like this: "[a] stand blood gas machine..."? Or maybe I could put this: "... standard blood gas machine[s]"?
I'm probably overthinking this. :( What do you think is the best choice?
I'm going to Scottsdale tomorrow, and haven't packed. Should I just wait till tomorrow morning? We're leaving around 2.

When I was little and the house got particularly trashed, my parents said it was because the imaginary butler and maid (Jeeves and Maria respectively) had run away together.
Also, in my first semester of college I kept losing things and I started blaming it on the Verruca Gnomes. My friend and I eventually built up a whole mythology around the VGs - they lived in the sewers and steam vents and were dwarfish in size and fearsome in appearance (big noses, pointed ears, lots of facial hair and sometimes piercings, beady angry eyes). They carried around all the stuff they stole from poor helpless students like ourselves. We still blame everything on the VGs.
Do you think someone stole it? Do they want to see my pants slowly falling down in public?

I watched the first episode of some new season yesterday and they were assigned a simple task, namely to make up some burgers and chips and bits of chicken and pasta for a bunch of kids.
They completely fucked it up. I mean these guys struggle to cook basic shit like pasta and make burgers... one guy sent out a plate of chicken which was clearly uncooked (very dangerous).
How do they select people for this show? Do they purposely select contestants who were voted most useless in the kitchen by their co-workers/employers? Most of them seem completely and utterly incompetent. I've never worked in a kitchen like that, but surely if you were a chef you would have cooked alot of pasta and made alot of burgers, so surely the added pressure of being on tv wouldnt be sufficient to cause someone with reasonable skills to screw it up to such a degree.
Maybe they require idiots as contestants... because it probably wouldnt be as entertaining if everyone wasnt incompetent and chef didnt flip out all the time.
Is there a nice way to tell him to clean up after himself without seeming like a control freak?

me and my partner moved in together about 6 months ago. we both have 2 cats. so far, 3 of the 4 cats get along great. the one pain in the butt cat (my cat) hates her 2 cats. he doesn't try to fight them necessarily, more bullies them. he will chase them and swat at them if they come near him or he hides in places they will walk by and then jumps out and chases them. we thought it would stop once they got used to each other but not so much. does anyone have any ideas???
It's around the holidays, and your boss flat out tells all you employees that in order to stay on his cool side, you should make a small donation to one of his favorite charities. He passes out a list of his favorite charities. Which do you pledge to, or do you incur the wrath of your boss?
Do you think they would always wonder whether it could be different?

Ok, my fuse... console bizzo says "440V" on the top, and "30A-U" at the bottom. It also says 10AAC1 above the console pull-out bit. This means that I need a 440 volt/30 Amp wire, yes?
What household handy things can you do?
I can change light bulbs (when I can reach), and fix things that can be fixed with screws or gaffer tape. I could fix sink plumbing, but that's icky so I let my housemate do that.

Why do people make such a big deal that Dr. Manhattan is nude in a few scenes in Watchmen? In my opinion there wasn't anything bothersome about it. And it wasn't like there were close ups or it was constantly showed throughout the whole movie.

say you have two options.
You have two options for spring break.
You can either go camping/go explore the state you're college is in (and since you're a freshman you have never explored Washington State, full of trails and cool things)
you can fly home (which you really should be doing because you are very stressed, need to catch up on work, see family, get sleep, stop getting sick...except not many friends will be there.)
Fun explorations with new friends OR relaxation and catching up on school work so you don't fail?
I am going into the hospital tomorrow afternoon to have a baby! My husband and I have spent a lot of time at the hospital lately because of complications and we love the nursing staff and my awesome doctors. We want to bring something with us to make nice and show how much we appreciate what they'll be doing for us over the next couple of days.
What should we bring? We live near a bagel shop that makes the best home-made bagels and cream cheeses but it will be afternoon when we get there so maybe it's not quite the right time of day for that. We also live near a bakery which has all sorts of treats. Should we bring a Birth-Day cake or pie or just a bunch of little goodies and let them choose for themselves?
If you were a labor & delivery nurse, would you be extra nice to me if I brought you treats?
What would you do if your son was at home, crying all alone the bedroom floor cuz he's hungry, and the only way to feed him is to sleep with a man for a little bit of money?
What crazy awesome, kinda pricy (like anything over 100 bucks basically) things should we register for?
And are Dyson vacuums worth the big bucks?? We'd get the Animal one (no pets currently but let's be honest, as a girl I shed a ton of hair, and I'm sure we'll have pets someday) but it's like 500 dollah which is insane. And how about the Roomba? I think they're really cool but don't know how well they work, but I think they'd be nice for vacuuming more often minus the hassle of dragging around a huge vacuum all over the house.
Anyone know of any cure?
a) Do it Friday after school, so that you have two full school-free days
b) Do it on Sunday so that you can enjoy your Friday, and so you can get back into school-mode
c) Do something else?
2. Do you live in that country?
