2. Tea Lovers, would you ever visit this tea house for a cuppa? Better yet, are you brave enough to visit that house for a drink?
I have a huge aversion to Hollister, Abercrombie, American Eagle, Victoria's Secret, and other stores. I think Hollister and Abercrombie are understandable but for like AE and VS, I don't know why. I just don't like their aesthetics I guess? And that fucking annoying butterfly on everything from American Eagle, but it breaks my heart when I see things that are cute from these places and I just can't get them!

You can flip the switches any time. You cannot destroy the house, or get X-ray glasses, or do anything to SEE the light. You cannot have a friend in there to tell you, or open up the switch to see which one has wires connected to you.

Yesterday, someone e-mailed me a picture of themselves from their phone. I have never seen this person in my life and I don't know anyone from the Pittsburgh area, which is where the exchange is from.
What should I say back to this person? I'm nervous that it's someone I'm supposed to know.

Does anyone have any good and free/cheap suggestions for fun things to do this weekend in Minneapolis?
I'm visiting a friend from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon and while I'm sure he has some ideas for what to do, I thought I'd bring it up to this community and see if anyone had other ideas.
Thanks for any ideas, I appreciate it :)

I've already got some good ideas, and I've found some neat websites about gardening with kids, but I'd like more. Anyone have any good ideas for easy activities or projects for kids to do related to gardening and nature? The kids in question would be between the ages of 7 and 13, and are visually impaired, so simple but fun are best. :)

I've been living in Chicago (and suburbs of) my entire life and this irritates me. And they got the rights for free?! BOLLOCKS!
Everyone in my office is wearing red and there are loads of red decorations hanging up. A few people have dyed their hair red and the guy who sits next to me is dying his beard red (that he grew especially) to raise money for Children In Need.
Some guy with long hair is shaving his head and another is waxing his chest in the office. Later we're going to have a raffle and cook red food to be sold (pizza, tomato soup etc).
I talked to the post office, there's not really anything they can do. It had my return address, the destination adddress, and the right postage- so the best I can do for now is pray it turns up in the next few days- either with them or with me.
I'm panicked. =(

What the fuck does that mean TQC?
Will you tell us about a fucked up dream you've had?

Our work recently banned headphones so we have to listen to our music out loud.
Since having to listen to our music out loud, I have noticed we have very different music tastes.
Do you and your friends have tremendously different music tastes? Or is it generally similar?
friend A: works for a company that requires people to be at work on Dec. 24, 26 and New Year's Eve, so those are black-out dates for vacation. Employees who really need the time off can get it -- but they need the okay from upper management and it has to be arranged way in advance. Friend A is reluctant to ask for the time off b/c she has only been there for a couple of years AND she doesn't want to NOT be able to get it off in the event she really needed to. She would prefer to go sometime in late November or early December.
friend B: is on a contract job with the school board. Whenever she doesn't work, she doesn't get paid. She already has two weeks of unpaid holiday during Xmas and is reluctant to ask for additional time for financial reasons. She would prefer to go during her two weeks (around Dec. 20 - Jan. 4 or so), even though it clashes with her friend's black-out dates.
In your opinion, how can the two friends come to a compromise? Do you think one person should make the sacrifice over the other?

I find it intriguing that people get so passionate and dedicated to arguing their side, regardless of their actual beliefs. I didnt even want to come off preachy there and I found myself getting way more defensive than I care to be. SORRY BOUT THAT. For all LJ purposes, I'm not even 'religious'.

Upstairs and downstairs
And in my Lady's chamber.
There I met an old man
Who wouldn't say his prayers,
So I took him by his left leg
And threw him down the stairs.
The stairs went "crack"
He broke his back
And all the little ducks went "quack, quack, quack"

7:15 PM 9/1/08 · Was kinda thinking goofy advice, in the way of a sorta brain·fart distraction, for a lovelorn type. It usually works, busts her into gigglefits, and I wasn't even thinking about it when car terms hit my head. Tend to flirt with her, both of us knowing that it will never go anywhere...and I do it nutty.
Was thinking car terms that could vaguely be related to sex as though she were coming in for a tune up. Subtlety is key! All I've got so far are change your oil & rotate your tires.
Could you come up with some more for me?
Is it like the old school RE games or is it like Umbrella Chronicles or Outbreak?

What should I do to pass the time? I'm almost the only one left in the office.
I had it in 2007 now I wanted to go back to it but according to the website it might not be like it used to be for me. When I had the three at a time unlimited in store exchange plan I would take all three envelopes to the store exchange them for new movies and that night the next dvd's in my queue would be shipping to me and I typically got them the next day or two days later. Now according to the site if I exchange movies in store, I won't get new movies from my queue until I return the movies I rented instore. Is this true for you? Or will you get the new movies from your queue while still having the in store rentals at home? Thanks.
Also, what is the movie where there are prisoners in this camp or sorts, and they all have collars on and if one prisoner ever tries to escape, if they are x ft away from their partner they start to die because the collar kills them (or something like that). So this guy ends up finding his partner and they try to escape. I can't think of it, any ideas?
I've noticed a lot of new people here. For better or for worse. *cough cough*

I was driving back to NY from PA, and, after being tailgated for much of my four-hour trip, decided, "Hey, I know where I'm going now. Why don't I just hurry back?" Coming off a parkway where EVERYONE was doing at least 70, I was caught doing 80 and pulled over.
The entire day was just a massive fail. I'd gotten lost, I had to pee for hours, there were NO rest stops for the last 3 hours of my trip, I was tired and cranky, I was driving with new glasses, and, fyi, after he wrote me a ticket, the cop pulled into traffic without signaling, changed lanes without signaling, and then turned. Without signaling. For those counting, he broke a NYS traffic law three times.
Pleading guilty means $110 fine and six points on my license.
Pleading not guilty but convicted is a $170 fine.
Pleading not guilty and not convicted is obviously the best scenario. This could happen if the cop doesn't show up. He has it on record on the ticket that I was going 80 in a 55, so I'm not sure how I can say I'm not guilty, heh. Could I say that I was being tailgated for most of the ride, plus EVERYONE just getting off the parkway was speeding? I was also slowing down before he got me.
1. Do I plead guilty?
2. Have you ever gotten a ticket? How'd you plead? Did it turn out well?
3. WikiAnswers said I should keep postponing the court date until I finally show up and see that the cop didn't even show, so the case would be thrown out and I'd be ok. Have you done this? How'd you postpone it?
