I heard that on women, their index finger is longer than their ring finger, and on men their index is shorter than their ring. Is this correct for you?

Mine are mostly even if I look at the back, but from my palm, my index is longer.

Do you ever get really stuffed up or sinus headaches after you've been crying for a long time? Or is my face just weird?

My puppydog's legs are twitching and she is making a really strange noise between a howl, a moan and a growl. What kind of animal is she dreaming about chasing?

What's the last movie you watched at (your or someone else's) home/on your (or someone else's) computer?
I just finished watching Definitely, Maybe. It was adorable.

How about in theaters?

I don't have HBO, so I couldn't watch True Blood tonight, and when I tried to download the torrent, it tells me that at the rate it's downloading, it'll take forty-three weeks to finish.  I could wait until there are more people seeding the file, but I need instant gratification! Youtube doesn't show anything either. Is there another site where I can watch the new True Blood episode without having to sign up for offers?  Found, thanks! :D

and, on another topic:

what was the last standardized test you took? how did you do on it?

I took the LSAT earlier this month, and I haven't gotten my score back, but I think I did well!

Answer me honestly, am I being ridiculous for trying to reach a reasonable 'limit' on what goes on at my fiance's stag party? His friends want to have strippers and I'm alright with that. We've gone to clubs before, I've bought him a lapdance, no problem. This isn't a jealousy thing.

It's more that his friends want to take it from fun to raunchy and filthy. Instead of just strippers, they want the strippers that go to town on each other and serve 'cooter shooters'. I don't think that's appropriate when my brother is in the wedding party and attending and both of our dads will be there as well.

Am I being too uptight or do I have a point? If I'm being crazy, I'll honestly back off but I'm usually up for anything but this just seems like a bad idea.

Do you drink with your pinky lifted?
I do. I'm not sure why.

If you could only drink one drink forever, what would it be?
Pineapple soda is pretty awesome stuff.  <3

Do you buy name brand things over generic ones? How often? What things will you only or absolutely won't buy generic?
I don't mind buying generic things, like sodas, paper towels, or chili.  I actually like generic chili better than the brand names.  xD
We get a few generic things everytime we go to the store.  It's cheaper sometimes... sometimes generic is more expensive than the good stuff.  D:

I won't buy generic deodorant/antiperspirants.  I tried some one time just to see if there was a difference, and a friend pointed out that it doesn't, work very well.

I minimized my text so you can avoid reading it if you only want to answer the questions.  <3
Let me know if it's too small if you do want to read it.  ^^

Don't you hate thinking of something while you're falling asleep, then forgetting it by morning?

Does anyone else think The Secret Life of the American Teenager should be named differently? I think it's too generalized.

Say you worked for a theater company, and you were doing a production of "The Full Monty", and you needed to find a sink, two toilets, and two urinals for use as set pieces.

Where would you look and/or who would you call? I'm at a loss. We obviously don't want to buy news ones as that's expensive and they clearly don't need to actually work. Someone suggested I call a plumber but I feel that they would just laugh at me.

I have a few random Visa gift cards with small amounts left on them. Combined they'd be good to buy something somewhere I'm sure, but I don't know where online I can use multiple cards. I remember doing it in the past, but have no idea what website accepted multiple forms of payment. I thought Amazon, but that's not right. Any idea where I can use these Visa gift cards online?

my boyfriend and i are moving in to a house together in a few weeks, and i wanted to know if anyone has any good luck superstitions for new homes or new marriages. we're not getting married, but i don't think there are any old wives tales regarding living in sin, so substitute new marriage charms.
I know about burning white sage, salt, and a new broom, but if anyone has any other good luck charms i would appreciate it.

My fiance and I have some extra money now on account of my new job. He wants to take me out on a fancy fancy date and I'd rather we split what we have to spend and each get something we want! He says there's nothing he wants right now but to spend money on me.

How bad would it be for me to say 'ok get me something pretty!' and then still use my half to get myself the art supplies I want?!
Should we just go out on the date instead because in three days I'll get fed up of my deteriorating art skills and throw a fit??

What are you munching on right now? I'm feeling a little peckish...

--I am at work, so I am unable to do this, since all of mine are saved on my home computer.

When you were little, what kind of things did you do when you played pretend (alone or with friends)? Details are nice!

--My best friend and I used to play in my back yard.  Her pretend name was Emma Smith and mine was Rachel Bonza.  Back story was that she was in a car accident and killed me (accidentally) and I came back from the dead and kept trying to kill her.  We were in like...second and third grade when we did this, so we were really violent children.  Another game we had was when we pretended to have super powers that controlled the elements (air, water, earth, fire) and our "names" reflected those powers, but I don't remember what those names were :\

I am an intern. Today my older coworker, who works in the same room as me, told me that I smell bad and it is interrupting her ability work. Apparently I smell like I have not showered or am wearing dirty clothes, and this is unprofessional and unacceptable and needs to not happen again. I agree with this idea, in general, except that after I was told this I immediately ran to the bathroom to cry and call my boyfriend and best friends to ask if, HONESTLY, I smelled bad. They all unanimously said no, and that aside from occasionally stinky feet, they cannot recall an occasion of me smelling bad. I obsessively sniffed myself and concluded that I did not smell anything bad. I am chewing gum, so it is not my breath, and I am wearing perfume and deodorant, so it is not my body odor. I genuinely have no idea what this "bad smell" is that only my coworker seems to have smelled.

My questions, TQC:

1. Do I ask other coworkers if they think I smell bad?
2. What could this mysterious smell be?
3. Is my coworker just being needlessly rude? (she did try to be nice about it, I think)
4. What would you do in this situation?

I need to get a wireless broadband card for my laptop. I already have a plan and broadband card, and it's a flat $60 a month for the plan. To get a new, upgraded card, I need a new plan, and they charge $60 a month plus 5 cents for every 5MB over 5G transferred. I use the internet on a nightly basis and usually more during the school year. Will I go over 5G a month? This is a new thing and I don't quite understand it.

I stay at my boyfriend's house sometimes because he lives a block away from my school. He and his brother are going out tonight and leaving while I'm still in class, so BF offered to buy dinner for me and drop it off. I told him I had a short break at 7. How bratty is it of me to be kind of pissed that he didn't come by because he was too busy playing video games?

At my favorite Indian restaurant I have never ordered any main dish except mushroom masala. I would like to try something else but I would miss the mushroom masala too much.

There's an interesting (to me, at least) open lecture at my college tomorrow that I'd like to attend, by a professor from the US.  The problem is that I thought it would be held in the big lecture hall, but it's in one of the smallest. I thought I'd go and 'blend in', but now that I know 'everyone' will see me, I'm kind of unsure. I mean, most of the people coming will be either my professors, professionals or grad school students, all old(er). None of the younger students will be attending, as far as I know.

Will I look like a fool in front of all those 'old' people if I go there to listen to this person talk about the 'big stuff' that I may not even understand?

Ring a bell?

I saw a synopsis of this play a few months back. Since then I have been trying to find out what's the title of the play and more information about it, to no avail.

The play is about a girl who witnessed her family or father being murdered when she was a kid. She then spent her whole life tracking down the murderer, but when she finally confronts him/her, she discovers that she might have completely misinterpreted what happened that night her family was murdered, and that her father might have been the villain instead of the murderer.

Does this sound familiar to you? I would love to find out what play this is.

Background info for the question below:
I'm sure that it is 100% psychological, but I have issues with drinking water and needing to go to bed after being "triggered" to do so.
Essentially, if I read the words "sleepy", "tired" "fatigued", "exhausted", etc., I suddenly get extremely tired, and feel like I HAVE to go to sleep.  This also happens when I am watching a movie and the character/s go to bed.  Same thing with drinking water - the words "thirsty", "dehydrated", "water", etc., makes me need to drink a bunch of water.  I was just watching a movie where a woman is drinking water, and I actually had to get up and get water from the fridge, because I suddenly felt very thirsty.
*No, for those of you who are inevitably going to ask, this reaction does NOT occur with needing to use the bathroom*

So, for my question:
Does anyone else experience this?
