Guess im a bitch

so my ex and i broke up in september but continued living together until this past week when i got my own place.
He just came over to check it out, and asked if i wanted to "do it" (exact words).
I laughed. Loud. And in his face. I laughed and laughed. Down the stairs and out the door as he got into his car.

I feel kind of bad. Should i apologize? Or keep Laughing?

On a lot of comments in different sites I've noticed over time some people saying "illll" like if they were saying "ewww" is that acceptable? like, did I grow up not realizing that? or did these people grow up thinking when people said EWW in real life it was spellled ILL?

How long have you had your current computer?
Is it a laptop or a desktop?
For those of you with laptops, are you super careful with them/their maintenance/etc? Also, have you ever had screws from the bottom of your laptop fall out?

I'm wondering if I'm the laptop killer or if mine is just a piece of crap. :(

What do you think about people answering their own question in the post?

I don't like it

Why not?

it's like people are talking to themselves

Who are you?

My name is Legion for we are many

So, do you ever have conversations with yourself where your voices have different personalities? Can you describe them?

Considering cops often make more money and have better funding, why does it seem like there are more cops on bikes and more security guards in cars?
If this question makes no sense to you interpret it symbolically.

Have you ever made a donation in honor of a loved one? Where was it to?

Do you celebrate the birthdays of people who have passed? Please share your stories.

A friend of mine who died from suicide last year's birthday is coming up, and I'm planning on making a donation in her name to Yellow Ribbon. I'm also planning on baking a cake for her. I'd like to hear about what other people have done in remembrance of their loved ones, as I am very sad and could use some warm stories.

What is the weirdest thing to happen to you lately?

I just had a knock at my door (at 1:30am). It was some guy looking for someone named Bobby, and when I told him I didn't know who that was, he started hitting on me and kept trying to get me to invite him in. I'm a bit creeped out.

How do you feel about parents who carry around those little TVs everywhere, and park their kids in front of them at places such as resturants?

I was browsing facebook, and came across a woman who had taken her two kids to Maui, and they were eating dinner on a beautiful beach front restaurant at sunset.. and both kids were staring at their own individual tv. Instead of, you know, enjoying where they are/interacting with people.

This is kinda sad to me, but then again, I'm not a parent, so maybe I just don't 'get it'. But then again, I do like that it shuts them the hell up..

i'm making a "choose your own adventure"-esque book for a project in one of my classes, but for some reason i can't remember exactly how they go and amazon search is only showing me the first few pages.

tqc, does anyone remember how these work? i've given two scenarios, one says "turn to page six," the other "turn to page seven"... does disaster happen at the end of one, always, or can it be looped back in later in the story? does that even make sense? basically, does every "wrong choice" = end of the story?

anyone? :(

edit: THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE. you guys are seriously amazing. :]

TQC, what do you do when you're completely overwhelmed and are having trouble focusing?

We just found out that Husband has been granted funding and a stipend to teach and be a PhD candidate at the University of Arizona in Tucson.  We live in Pittsburgh, PA.  We have to move across the country in 13 weeks.  We have around $8,000 set aside for moving.  Is that enough money?  How the hell am I going to move 2 cats across the country?  I keep bouncing between updating my resume, looking for apartments/neighborhoods that are safe/pricing "cost of living" things, looking for jobs, researching moving companies, etc.  Can you help me at all?  I'm freakin' out here.

ETA: I also have to get a little bit of work done on my car and sell it, because there is no way I'm driving a grey car with black leather interior around the desert.

Will you share some stories about cooking disasters (yours or someone else's)?

A couple of mine:
When I was younger I was very impatient and pulled an egg out of the water before it was hard-boiled.  I tried to remedy it by putting it in the microwave and wound up with something that looked, smelled, and tasted like burnt rubber.

I also somehow screwed up making fudge at one point and it still hadn't hardened after 3 days in the fridge.  I ended up pouring it into the dumpster.

And my grandmother, who is usually very intelligent, one day decided to save time by adding sugar to the coffee before brewing it (she added it to the filter).  Needless to say, it got poured down the drain, although my father did try some of it.

I don't know if this has been asked yet by anyone, but either the lastest Adblock update from firefox or the latest Vista update seems to have broken my Adblock. Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a way to fix it? Adblock was the number 1 reason I use Firefox so if it's gone, I'll be upset. It seems to have repaired itself. Weird.

i got a voicemail from a job i applied for saying thanks but no thanks, glad to meet you, we'll keep your resume on file since it's really a scheduling thing that's keeping you from getting it. They really did like me, I'm pretty sure.

Should I return the call, say thanks and let me know if something opens up, or let it be ended?

Suppose due to some unfortunate circumstances, you will have to take some additional classes this next semester, on top of the amount of classes you normally take. You have these three options:

- take 3 very easy classes
- take 1 moderately difficult class and 1 very easy class
- take 1 very easy class, and pay $850 and take another very easy class online over the summer

Which class set would you choose?

dinner + graduating?

TQC what should I eat for dinner? I ate something healthy for lunch, but I'm going to go out for some ice cream later with my friend, so I'm kind of trying to balance everything out while not wanting to spend $$$.

So. Which is best?

Sushi, which can cost from $7-10, or (I'd get the california roll)
Jack In The Box, $5-7 (I'd get the grilled chicken sandwich + fries)

Unrelated, how many of you are graduating soon?

If/when you got accepted into a college, did you have to wait for an acceptance letter to find out? Or could you find out over the phone?

I just called the college I auditioned for and they said that they just got the results back from the music department and that letters have just been sent, expected to arrive next week. I asked if they could tell me over the phone and they said they couldn't. I'd already told them my name. So now I'm all thinking into it deeply and stuff - supposing that if I'd gotten accepted they would have told me.

My parents are getting us new phones today and they're looking at the Samsung Propels. Anyone have any rants or raves on their Propel?

My parents are also having the siding replaced on their house. The guys doing it are the same ones who replaced their windows a few weeks ago. One of them is my age (21) and I think he keeps flirting with me. Asking me about my pets, favourite music, commenting on my tshirts, and a little while ago I was getting him some ice and he saw my ring.
I wear it on my left hand so it doesn't get yucky, but it's just the ring my parents got me for my birthday. Anyway, he asked if I was engaged or married.
Was he being nice or was he asking if  I was available?
I've never been in a situation like this before. I'm confuzzled.

TQC I'M SO IRKED. I just made an extensive post and then somehow managed to highlight it and delete it with my keyboard.

Let me make this brief: it's been a long week and I'm hungry like the wolf. I want to go crazy for dinner tonight.

If you could have literally any meal you wanted for dinner, what would it be?

How much money do you think two people need to live on comfortably these days? I know it depends, let's talk bare minimum comfortable in an apartment. I'm looking for per year, per couple.

I factored in about $43,000 if that sounds about right --
Rent = $900 + 100 for incidentals = $1000 (inc cable, water, energy)
Food = $600 ($120 per week x 4 weeks = $240, plus $120 for random eating out)
Laundry/household supplies = $200
Transportation = $200 (Commute + gas + oil for 2 cars)
Misc = $300 (clothes, random stuff, medication)
Health insurance for the month = $340 per month
Car insurance = $300
Car payment = $400
(I tacked on an extra $2000 for just-in-cases, too)

My SO and I will have quite a bit in student loans by 2010 and wanted to see how frugally-yet-comfortably we could live to pay them off as soon as possible. We overestimated a few things, like our food intake, but thought it was better to overestimate the total than underestimate it.
