1. Are you one of those people who can understand English through the heaviest of accents or are you one of those people who turn to others and go, "What did he just say? Was that even English?"

I went to bed around 1:30am. Got up at 5:30am.
Why do I keep staying up so late when I know I have work the next morning? It's getting very irritating. :(
I live in a 4-plex. The day I moved in, the upstairs neighbors moved out. I just found out the across the hall lady is moving out. This leaves me and a retired cop. I'm really quiet, even when I have people over. Why are all my neighbors moving out?
My mom is doing P90X. She's way way way into it, and found an online community about it. She got really excited about that, so I pointed her towards the lj one. Is directing my fifty-two year old mother to lj strange?
Since these are both somewhat involved questions, I feel the need to throw in an easy one. What are your plans for today?
What kind of drunk are you?
I'm more interested in going to the meetings, online only would be a terrible choice for me since if there's no one I'm answering too, I'll slack off.
I think I might have a problem.

2)do small children make you uncomfortable?
3)do you like items made of recycled things? such as bags made out of plastic bags?
When I didn't hear from them in a few days, I e-mailed them and they told me they pretty much have everyone, but they also said to please give them time because they're trying to fit me in. I don't know what to make of this. I don't know whether to think I blew my chance completely or I have the job and I just need to wait.
One one hand, I wasn't rejected outright - if they didn't want me and there was no way of me getting hired because they are full staff, they'd say it, wouldn't they?
On the other hand, Friday will make a week since I applied - it's taking a while and I think with every passing day it looks bleaker and bleaker. I also don't understand how they can fit an extra employee to an already full staff. They have to have a financial limit for how many people they can hire, right?
I'm going to e-mail them again in a few days - I don't want to annoy them by e-mailing them back too soon when they asked me to patient.
What do you think my chances are here?
(P.S - I posted this to another LJ question/advice community last night and all I got back was a bunch of sarcasm. I know you guys aren't psychic, but I'm getting nervous and I just want people's thoughts/guesses)
2. Should I stop being lazy and go clean up my living room?
3. What should I do for my hubby tonight? It's our anniversary but we are pretty broke and our car needs fixed so we can't really go anywhere. I already plan to make him a steak dinner for tonight but what else can I do for him that would be nice without having a car or money? Other than sex...he's already getting that :)

What is something you are looking forward to today?
She has horrible tattoos and exudes a bit of trashiness, but I'm infatuated with her. I am so embarrassed to admit this.
2. What is the proper way to respond to a job offer letter?
I've already accepted the job through phone and email, but the letter and stamped envelope just arrived. Do I need to mail back a personal job acceptance letter or just sign the letter that I just received?
I'm going to rip the hard drive from two borked laptops I own. Obviously I know how to do this, but what do I do with them? I'd like to just have some spare external hard drives, but what are my options for casing them?

My best friend is helping me through a tough time in my life and told me to write letters, rants and raves and then destroy them. We realized setting them on fire isn't exactly, um, LEGAL here, so what are some better ideas?

I'm usually a merlot kind of gal, but I think I want something lighter, maybe fruitier? Other than Arbor Mist, what sort of wine would you recommend?
Or should I just buy really cheap champagne and pick up some strawberries?
Or should I say fuck it and relive jr. high with a couple of bottles of Boone's?
I started blowing off classes this time around. Proooobably a bad idea. Ideally I just stop thinking about exams altogether and continue as usual, because getting worked up about it just leads to poor performance. Usually this works really well for me but this semester has been nerve-wracking!
What are you listening to currently?
I have a copy of "How To Get Out of The Hospital Alive" but it doesn't have any information on specifically mental heath hospitalization.
Does anyone know of a good title on this subject? Where can I get it? Thanks.
It popped up in wank this morning and now I'm curious to see what the consensus is.
I can go hours without having to poop, or even thinking about it at all.. but it seems like the very second I light a cigarette, THERE IT IS. every time, without fail. it happens to my husband, too.
does this happen to you, or are we just weirdos with nicotine-activated bowels?

Do Canadians sometimes say "Mum" instead of "Mom"?
I'm reading a Canadian book and the author is using "mum". Not sure if it's an edition edited just for Australian/UK audiences, though.
Somehow it was discovered that she owns a $300,000 house, drives a fairly new mercedes and has $80,000 in the bank in her savings.
Some folks are flipping out saying she's abusing the system and can obviously afford to buy her own food at this point.
Others are saying that since food stamp need is determined by current income and she doesn't have any that she's completely entitled to the assistance.
What side do you take, TQC?

You just bought a new car and you're happy and proud of it. It's beautiful. You pick your best friend up, and within 10 seconds, he/she throws up over the dashboard. Turns out, your friend is allergic to 'new car smell'. The vomit leaks into the air vent, and the smell of it saturates the car (he/she had fish for lunch). It's gross and you have to drive with the windows open. Your friend is sorry and offers to make it up to you. What would you demand as compensation?
You've been dating your SO for over a year,and while the sex is fine, it's getting a little predictable. Then, one day, your SO brings home a wig and asks you to wear it the next time you have sex, to spice things up. You do, and your SO bangs you passionately. It's like the first time you guys did it. You got at it 3 times that night and it's like your SO can't get enough. After you've finished using the bathroom afterwards, you look in the mirror, and something dawns on you. The wig looks just like your best friend's hair. The color, the cut. It's a perfect match. You think about how your SO has been acting when you were wearing the wig and you suspect that he/she has a big thing for your friend. What do you do?
i've hated onions up until recently, since my roommates always cook with them and mix em into stir frys and such. i've now learned to enjoy their taste, but not by choice.
also, i heard that back in ye olde days before people swore on bibles in court, they swore on onions. apparently they were/are sacred.
Can it be wrong if it feels oh so right??
It feels so RIGHT. How can it be wrong?

last night I got a small splinter in the heel of my foot. It hurts to put full weight on that foot now. I tried to get it out but couldn't- then I went to sleep. I've forgotten a few times today (getting out of bed right after waking up, etc) and stepped on it and it hurts like a bitch and also has driven the tiny splinter further into my foot.
HOW THE FUCK DO I GET THIS THING OUT?
Why haven't you?
Will you do it now?

Let's say you're out with some friends at a bar. You're a bit tipsy, but not drunk. Another friend is a bit tipsy, but not drunk. You hook up. You two go home together, sleep together. The next day, this friend asks for a relationship. You say no, because you just ended a relationship a month ago, but would be open to casual dating for now. This friend screams that they trusted you by sleeping with you, that they feel like they were used. They say things like "Sex means we should be in a relationship." Is this friend crazy, or are you an asshole?
I dislike classic rock, pop, and whatever you'd classify bands like Slipknot as.
Will you reccomend some books for me?
I generally dislike science fiction, and I really enjoy political science, historical, biographies, and fiction.

Yesterday I accepted a part-time bookkeeping job for a construction company. It's 2 days a week starting out, $10/hr.
I also scored a job at Wal-Mart, part-time, $7.95/hr.
However....yesterday afternoon old boss calls and sets up a meeting with me, him, and TS (associate attorney). He wants to offer me my job back, part-time. When I left I was making $8.50/hr.
So...what should I do? I've got 3 part-time jobs, but can only handle 2.
I'm definitely not giving up the bookkeeping gig.
ETA: The 2nd job would only be worked until I go full-time with the bookkeeping job.
Would you work at Wal-Mart or the job that fucked you twice in less than 2 weeks? TS is prepared to do what she has to in order to bring me back (including paying me in cash). I can probably score a raise from it...but at the same time I want to punch my other ex-boss in the face.
Buster Keaton. Nobody else could take a fall or do a stunt as seriously as he did them, and get the laughs like he does.
Do you ever feel beaten on the head by civil rights blather? Specifically, "OMG never forget that there were slaves in this country and we whiteys should all feel reeeeeally guilty! SLAVERY IS SO BAD, RIGHT??? Also, we liberal-arts people have a duty to pound this knowledge into your heads! Let's see how many books we can connect back to ENSLAVEMENT OF THE NOBLE SAVAGE BY THE MEAN OLD EUROPEANS!!!!!!"
If that question was too slanted for you... how do you feel about emphasizing the issue so heavily in a liberal-arts education?
Don't get me wrong, I know it's important... but it's unnecessary to have to go through the same thing in all my lit and history classes. I kind of get the point by now. If they were saying anything different, I might change my mind, but they're all equally inept at bringing anything fresh into the discussion.
For example I believe in unions but I work in a place with a union and as a result all of the people moan and whine and go to the union rep over the dumbest shit.
Also, what do you think about UNICORNS?
This is an odd question but- do you think doctors/therapist type people have the right to decline a appointment cancelation?
Basically, I called my therapist yesterday afternoon and canceled our appointment for tonight (so more than 24 hours notice.) She then called me and left me a message about an hour ago (our appointment is at 7:30) saying that she feels like it's extremely important that we talk (for tl;dr reasons, I don't disagree there is shit to discuss) and that's it's "critical" that I be there. She then goes on to say that she expects me there, and would I please call her if I wish to cancel.
Now, my take on this is that if I do call right now and cancel, it will be like I was only canceling 2 hours before the appointment, in which case she'd be within her rights to charge for the appointment. I haven't spoken to her yet but I'm wondering if I'm completely wrong in thinking that, should I in fact keep the cancellation, she shouldn't charge me.
WHAT DO YOU THINK TQC?

Where are some other odd places you've found help wanted listings besides the usual monster, careerbuilder, and regionalhelpwanted.com?
this seems scam-like to me, and I am hesitant to do it..
Does anyone have any experience with this? was it a scam?
Specifically the wireless ones, but I'd love to hear about ANY of them :) Thanks in advance!
Have you ever had a day with a big up and a huge down?

Am I the only person who really dislikes typing in Microsoft Word?
I prefer to write in Notepad or something and then just copy and paste into a Word Document when I'm finished. Mostly because I feel that I pay too much attention to length and amount of pages I wrote, when I'm typing in Word rather than focusing on content.
for example, i just typed example and i can't see the x! but a space is made whenever i type it.. there are lots of other things not showing up too.. but they are right now while i'm typing.. D:

I ALWAYS do. I forget that people think it's weird.
It's not like I even had my teeth on it or anything, just my lips. I'm guessing it already had a break or something that wasn't visible yet and maybe pressing it against the fridge thing to get the water in, made it about to crack. Needless to say, my lip is now bleeding.
I didn't notice in the film but some people say this is true!

For everyone else:
What excuses do you use when you get an injury (cuts and bruises included) doing something stupid or in some way you'd feel stupid explaining?
