It has recently been brought to my attention that some people prefer Weather Underground to Weather.com. Can someone explain why? I have nothing but love for weather.com, and feel like WU is really disorganized...any simple explanation I'm missing?
Have you ever seen the end of a rainbow?
Most people (who have an opinion) fall into one of two camps: they love Zoolander, or hate it. Which are you?
I can't get LJ to load on one of my computers. I can get it to load on the other one. They're both using Firefox and the same (fast) ethernet connection. The non-connecting computer is the one with a static IP. Does anyone have an explanation as to why this is occuring?
My boyfriend has just recently moved, and we've taken to camming at nights to be able to "see" each other with such a distance between us. Unfortunately, he moved to a college with awful Internet, and his cam barely functions (aka: freezes constantly and will show maybe 3 or 4 frames before freezing again for a good 10 minutes). Is there any way this can be circumvented, or is it stuck the way it is? I would hate to go the next 2 years he's there with no way of camming.
Backround info for the question: My friend has been in a long distance 4 and a half year relationship. She lives in Illinois, he lives in North Carolina. They talk on the phone everyday. He has flown out to see her once, she has flown out to see him 5 times in the course of the relationship. She's 27 years old, he's 36 years old. Now, to the question.
He recently made a facebook page and made his relationship status as "single". TQC, what is your opinion on their relationship? Please be as detailed as possible with your answer, and why you feel that way. I can edit any facts in you want to know.
lol guys help. tomorrow my family's going out for lunch for my birthday, so i have to decide where we're going. i have 24 hours left and i have no idea where we're going. can you help? these are my options:
applebee's tuesday's friday's olive garden the distillery eta: famous dave's
also, we'll be going to rochester, ny, for lunch, so if any of you know of other good restaurants, feel free to mention them too.
i also have to decide what to get for dessert. we can either eat dessert at the restaurant, or go back out a few hours later. we have a coldstone creamery nearby, but i've never been there.
what do you suggest i do?
eta: what do you all think of famous dave's? i'm leaning toward it right now.
There's a copy of Love in the Time of Cholera on my shelf, haunting me because I read half of it a year ago and then stopped for some reason even though it was really good, and I haven't since finished it, even though I've read innumerable books since.
I have been on a crazy TV watching spree this summer, and I need more things to watch! Shows I've watched and enjoyed are Six Feet Under, Dexter, Rome, How I Met Your Mother, the Big Bang Theory, Reaper, Mad Men, Firefly, Carnivale, Coupling, and True Blood.
how much is 1/5 of a carat diamond worth? anything?
my mother felt guilty (or something) so she sent me a package of worthless/semi-worthless crap....what should i do with it? (yeah, there was a diaomond ring in there...but that's the only thing i'll ever use)
Okay so I got firefox installed on my laptop but for some crazy reason, it won't connect to the internet anymore because of proxy-somethingsomething, when I switch to the guest account however, firefox works fine and nothing is wrong here. I tried to re-instal it but it didn't work. Wtf is up with it?
If there were a magical bumble bee and he gave you sage advice and the best of friendship, would you mind him buzzing about your ear for the rest of your life? Would you rather have a very obvious talking hamster then you fucking git?
Situation: A woman works behind the counter at a movie rental store of no small renown. There is this one creep of a fellow who keeps coming in and hitting on her. She dislikes this and finds it extremely uncomfortable and says so to the jackass. When he doesn't stop, she wants to refuse service but her boss says she has to serve him and treat him with respect, just like every other customer.
Question: Do you think she has a decent chance in court against the company at this point?
(This question is only for entertainment purposes.)
I had a job interview Thursday for a job I would really enjoy having. However, they told me before the interview even started that they are interviewing through June so they aren't making a decision for a bit. Are they trying to torture me?
A friend of ours is flying in to Pittsburgh from Calgary. We're going to hang out for a few days. He's going to spend one night here (at our house, which is in a shit hole town an hour north of Pittsburgh), and then one night in Pittsburgh. I am going to have to cook for him at least once, probably dinner. He is what you'd call a pescetarian, I think. He is primarily vegetarian but he eats dairy, eggs and occasionally fish. Husband and I are both omnivores. I usually don't cook anything vegetarian for dinner, simply because Husband isn't big on veg-only dinners. I am a rather skilled cook, but I will probably not have much time from the time I get home from work until he comes to the house. Also, Husband will NOT eat anything with ANY kind of bean (aside from green beans) in it, or tofu. I am not big on mushrooms.
Does anyone have a recipe or meal idea to share that I could make for dinner on Monday night?
tqc, i need you to tell me if i'm being unreasonable. my family has a tradition of going out for lunch to celebrate birthdays, and the birthday person gets to pick where we go. i usually don't tell everyone where we're going until about an hour or so before we have to be there (partly because i usually don't decide more than 24 hours in advance), but none of my family lives more than 10 minutes from where we usual go. one set of aunt and uncle and my grandma seem to think they NEED to know on friday or saturday (we always go on sundays).
am i being unreasonable by not telling them a few days in advance?
i am scared to fucking death of rats. everything else i can handle. like i'll scream and flail around but i will kill the centipede in a timely fashion if i can catch it. but rats just... ugh. last summer i saw one swimming in the lake and i screamed and ran.
How insane would it look if I had my son in a backpack carrier while I push his stroller with his huge carseat in it? I'm leaving back home to Texas for a MONTH, so all of this is necessary. I bought a bag to carry the carseat as a backpack but the carseat was too big. So BLAH. I hate traveling by myself. What's the longest layover you've had to endure? I have a 3 hour layover this time in Houston, but the longest was 7 hours in Atlanta. Do you have any strange travel stories?
Any advice for friends that you continuously pour time into, only to realize that they never reciprocate?
I feel like this is an ongoing occurance with multiple friends. I feel underappreciated, and while I know the clear cut answer is "get new friends ", it's hard when you've invested so much time into making them a friend. Can anyone relate?
TQC, do any of you know the name of the tribe that lives in an all-circular society and are unfamiliar with corners and edges of rooms and buildings? sorry for the vague question but i can't word it any better!
EDIT: I didn't realize there were so many booger-haters out there. I just wanted to point out that technically...you're going to end up eating most of them anyway, unless you blow your nose obsessively.
1. How much makeup do you wear on a day-to-day basis?
2. Do you know any nice makeup styles that you can wear pretty much every day without looking creepy and overdone? Can you wear eyeshadow every day? (And what colour eyeshadow goes well with grey eyes anyway?)
3. What is one makeup item you would reccommend to everyone?
4. How often do you shave?
5. What kind of face wash and moisturiser and whatnot do you use?
