1. What has been the most beautiful man made site/building/structure you've seen with your own two eyes?

What was so beautiful about it?

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?


Are there any stores that you will never buy anything from?

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!

How can you tell which one, of three, light switches turns on a light in another house, if you are only allowed to enter the other house with the light once?

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.

Who's that girl la la la la la la la la la

So, as I'm sure everyone knows, if you're sending a picture from your cell phone and enter an e-mail address instead of a phone number you can e-mail the pics to someone.

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.

ideas for road trip!

 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'm going to start an after school gardening/nature stuff class for the kids I work with at the school for the blind! I think I'm going to call it the Green Thumb Club.

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. :)

*lol* I'm about to leave for class so you'll probably all get responses to your answers several hours from now, sorry. :D

Red Nose Day

Are you doing anything for Red Nose Day today?

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 just found out a big application packet for a work abroad program I sent to NY (from MA) last Friday has yet to arrive. It has a check in it which I have to cancel if there's a chance it got stolen, along with documents that make me nervous someone could steal my identity, not to mention trying to put together a new one would take at least a week (up to two) and more money and could delay me too long to even still take part in the program.

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. =(

Embarassment galore

So here's what happened. I was in my meteorology class at my university. Class is in an small auditorium with long rows of desks, so I always bring my laptop to multitask while in the class. Before class I was watching youtube videos, and I forgot to turn the sound back off when I went to class. I have Avast Anti-virus, and if anyone has used it, it talks to you when it is doing something, and I have the anti-virus as my screensaver. While in class I was taking notes, and the screensaver comes on, and while the professor is talking, the computer screeches out warning beeps, and says "WARNING, WARNING! A VIRUS HAS BEEN DETECTED!!" The class brusts out laughing, and I am properly embarrassed. I have had my phone go off before in class, but this is a new one! Anybody here want to share an embarrassing college moment?

Work Music

I share a cube with solostforever

Okay, so let's say there are two good friends who are wanting to go on vacation together sometime around the Xmas holidays. They want to go for a week but there are some issues...

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?

Why does a question about religion, or the bible, spark so much discussion/argument/anger, especially in people that apparently don't care about it to begin with?

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'.

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.

Do any of you have blockbuster online with total access?

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?

Continuing the Theme

I got a speeding ticket last night.   It's my very first ticket, unless you count the speeding ticket I got last year in PA for going 36.5 mph.  (Yeah, PA's Cheltenham Police can suck it.)

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?

A friend and I were just discussing how theoretically awesome it would be if everyone had surnames that had to do with their professions, like in days of yore. Granted, "Jeff Sysadmin" and "Mary Certifiednursingassistant" don't quite have the ring of "Smith" and "Miller", but at least it'd be funny. And "Bob Burgerflipper" is pretty cool.

If you could look 25 for your whole life, but die 10 years early, would you do that?

Do you ever go out to a bar/club by yourself?

How do you avoid looking awkward?

I'm bored and don't want to sit at home, but all of my friends are busy. Should I go out by myself?

Cascader Hangers

Have any of you tried the Hanger Cascader that are on the infomercials? Basically, you can 6 garments on one "hanger" and then cascade it down so it only takes up the space a single hanger would. My closet is a complete mess and I find it hard to fit everything in. Even AFTER I did a huge purging of "stuff I haven't worn in over a year, doesn't fit, etc"

So, if you've used them are the worth it??

I had a Japanese speaking midterm yesterday. For the midterm you are supposed to use certain grammar rules and vocab taught since the beginning of the semester to construct a little four minute skit with a partner. Your lines must be memorized. My friend forgot a line twice and proceeded to say "fuck" and "I don't know what the fuck I'm saying" in front of the class and professor.

I talked to her the following day and it turns out the professor failed her. My friend's partner's grade was not affected because everyone is graded individually.

Last semester I had the same professor and accidentally said shit during the speaking midterm. I was not marked down at all, in fact the professor chuckled.

Did my professor make the right call by failing my friend?

1)Do you think everyone is born with the same abilities or do you think there is a great deal of diversity in abilities?

I worry there's diversity- for example, my stamina has always been low.

2)How big should a serving of key lime pie be?

the size of a deck of cards.

3)I wish I could put alcohol in my hot chocolate. what do you put in yours?


I think my roommate just took his laptop into the bathroom with him to drop a deuce. Normally I don't care when people do it, but for some reason this is SERIOUSLY grossing me out.

Why am I so randomly grossed out by this, TQC?

What should I do tomorrow until 7pm (when my ex is coming over so we can hang out)?

Chuck Taylors (aka Converse): Hi-tops or low-tops? This is a very heated debate in the student organization center at school. I am definitely in the hi-top crowd, as hi-tops are the only chuck taylors I've ever owned.

What is making you laugh, TQC?

My husband is playing Halo 3 against some 10 year old (seriously, I can hear him on the headset), and the kid is totally kicking his ass.

In Loveless, how does the word-fighting work? I know that they are spells of some kind, but what are their operating principles? They don't seem like traditional spells.

Okay, please forgive the stupid nature of this question, but I've never worked one job that gave me full time hours, I've always been part time and supplemented them with some other line, so:

I work at least 32 hours a week, usually closer to 35, sometimes up to 38-40, just depends. They refer to me as their full time receptionist. I work at least five days a week, sometimes six, but I'm not full time. I don't get paid time off, I don't get floating holiday, and I don't get benefits. Is this shady? Should I complain? I mentioned it briefly, and was told it was because they "couldn't afford" to make me full time. Umm...can someone explain that to me?

Do you like thin crust pizza? What do you top it with?
