anything you wear daily? any significance?
I don't think they are breaking any rules really...they have a lot of people over, and it's one hour past quiet hour, but I think it's really only sounds of them sitting/standing or talking that is being magnified x 10000 into my house. They would need to be, like, asleep, in order for me not to be annoyed by them.
Is there any way of non-bitchily explaining this to them? Augggh I wish I was less of a recluse and could actually deal with human noises.
I'm -9 in my left eye and -6 in my right with glasses. That's -6/-3 with contacts. I can barely see a distance equal to the width of my hand. Maybe a bit less these days.
When was the last time you had to lie?
Do you like that show "Lie to Me?"
Will you lie to me?
WHO IS THE HOTTEST PUSSYCAT DOLL?
Is there a magical place similar to Ikea with a good selection of products I can purchase online and have shipped to my house and not spend my entire paycheck?
omg, it's so awesome
When you drink, do you aim to get drunk or just get buzzed?
Are you drunk right now?
Which would you rather wear: checkers or paisley?
What's the best weather for sleeping?
Business casual. I work in our remote office with a grand total of 8 people though, and my boss is beyond awesome, so we get away with a lot more than our head office. Like open toe sandals. :)
It is really, truly, Friday, right? I'm not just delusional?
Yesterday my sister and I were at a music in the park event. It is held in a park downtown, people put down a blanket bring some beverages and enjoy music. Not soon after we sat down, this couple next to us sat down and spread out their blanket. Then the guy decided to light up a big juicy cigar. The park can get pretty crowded so space around blanket areas can get pretty tight. My sister and I were trying to enjoy the nice weather and music but we were downwind of this guys smokey cigar, and he wasn't being discreet about it either. I taped him on the shoulder and said I am sorry could you please move your cigar the smoke is blowing in my face (I was extremely polite). He looked pissed and told me "I can't control where the wind goes!". I sat back down and he was even worse about it he purposely put the cigar next to him so I would catch all the smoke. This guy behind me looked pissed and said "why don't you tell him to put it out!" After he was finished smoking on the dog turd of a cigar he didn't put it out but proceeded to put it in the grass next to him so it would keep smoking. Luckily him and his ugly girlfriend left soon after.
Last night I fixed a broken pair of eye glasses with a drinking straw, two toothpicks, and a piece of scotch tape.
What's something you've done that made you feel like MacGyver?
Do you enjoy foods that are considered "typical" for your area?
(example, if you're British, do you like fish and chips...if you're a Yankee, do you like cream of wheat...etc)
I LOVE me some Southern food.
What are some covers of songs that you like better than the originals?
Disturbed's "Land of Confusion" and Rascall Flatts' "Life is a Highway" are much better than the originals, IMO.
What catalogs/magazines do you get in the mail each month? Do you actually look through them?
All I get is Sportsman's Guide and MidwayUSA. I thumb through them saying "Want that...can't justify buying it" a lot.
Do you prefer for all the questions in a post to be related somehow, or is a random mix of topics more you're thing?
Should it be for breakfast, lunch or supper?
Where should I take her thats "spechull"? Bojangles? Taco Bell? Chick-fil-a?

It's not going to usher in the apocalypse and it's not going bring about the Age of Aquarius, but I want to make my own opinion instead of listening to all these hacks out there.
What is your most played song?

My apartment complex wants to raise my rent from $1,000/mo to $1,025/mo. HOWEVER, on their website and on their listing at apartments.com, they're listing 3-bedrooms (which is what I have) for $865-$985/mo. THIS IS BOGUS, Y/Y?
What do you think the chances are that they'll give us the lower rent if we go and bitch at them, and threaten to move? (We have a house lined up for less than we're paying now... but moving is such a pain in the ass. :( ugh)
ETA: What is your favorite thing to put on toast?
Peanut butter and bananas! Or butter and cinnamon sugar.
I'm thinking things like:
I got a call this morning from the boss at ten after nine asking where I was. Apparently my supervisor didn't show up for the shift, and since it was a verbal agreement to trade shifts, they called me first.
How much trouble do you think I'll end up in (assuming she doesn't own up to it), since there's no real proof we switched?
Since the new girl, who is only trained by her, showed up this morning at 9:00, does that add some credibility to my statement?
Also, my cat ate the tail off of his catnip mouse!!!! it's about 3 inches of felt. Will he be alright????
It thunderstormed all last night. Do you like thunderstorms?
Sweet or savory?
I had one friend who said 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year. I had another friend who said just 6 months and 1 year, I had another friend who said every month is cause for celebration. I myself just sat there going D: So what do you think, TQC? What month(s) should be celebrated? (And by "celebrated" I mean gift- or card-giving and maybe dinner out, not just "oh look we've been together X months, nice").
Also, the friend who said she celebrated every month went out for dinner last night with her fairly new boyfriend. I asked her why, and she said "Oh it's the 2 month anniversary of our first kiss." What is this fuckery? Is this normal? Are there any more outrageous and seemingly random dates that are cause for celebration?
I don't know much about MP3 players/accessories, so I thought maybe one of y'all could answer this for me. I just bought a new car, and it has an auxillary jack and a DC outlet inside the center console for running an MP3 player. I bought a car adaptor and a 3.5mm male-on-both-ends cord to plug it into the jack. Problem is, since the jack is strictly output, I can't control the player (skip songs) with the normal controls; I have to open up the console and do it on the player, which is both a pain and dangerous.
So, my question:
Is there an adaptor cable available that would let me control my songs on the player through the normal stereo controls, given that the only input I have available is a 3.5mm headphone jack?
Is there a reason why this would happen? Am I missing some new livejournal function that already does that?
I'm getting my hair cut/styled today. I'm going out tonight, and want to look FAAAAAAB.
WTF are the new hair trends for long hair? Are side bangs still in?

Do you find disputes that cause you to lose friends more or less painful than breaking up with someone?

How badly do you need to clean out your closet and drawers?
How badly to you need to clean out the storage space in your bathroom (i.e. medicine cabinets, under sink, drawers)?
What do you do with the stuff you don't need?
Extraordinarily badly, especially since I just moved back to my mom's house and the stuff in the closet is 10 years old.
Same as above.
I give it away if it's in good condition or throw it away if it's not. I'd like to have a yard sale to make some cash but don't have the time to have one.

I have a Photobucket account but it takes hours for me to upload photos on it. I also have a Flickr account but it also seems to take a really long time for the photos to upload, and of course the space limits are pretty small.
Should I buy a paid Flickr account or is there somewhere better?
I am at work for the next 3.5 hours. I work as a cashier, so I am only busy when people show up. Today, I am like the backup cashier, so even when people do show up, most of them go to the main cashier. What should I do to entertain myself on the intarwebz/computer between now and when I get off work at 4 CST? I can't do anything that involves sound.

These are the original batteries from 1998.
TQC, were these amazing batteries or is my Furby simply possessed and feeding off of evil?

Now, I wasn't giving an opinion on that definition one way or another, so please don't let this turn into definition wank like it always does when this comes up, pleeeeaaaase.
Anyway, he then went on to say that he couldn't be racist because he doesn't have power, and when I told him no, it's the institutionalized power that he has behind him as a white male, he started to say, "Well actually, we really have less power..." at which point I laughed in his face and I think he's pouting now.
Really though, he isn't normally that dense and I think if I could explain it well, he'd start thinking about it and realize he's wrong.
So here's my question: what's a good, condensed way to explain this without sounding patronizing? I feel bad for just laughing and shutting down communication, but it was just so ridiculous. Especially from someone I expected better from. :/ And I suck at explaining things.
Does it feel like a friday?
Flea Markets: Yay or Nay?

So the flight is 11 hours, what should I do to keep myself entertained (I have a hard time sleeping on planes). I have SIMS but that only keeps me preoccupied for so long. And I'm nearly finished with my book.
Any ideas? (can't use the internet)
Any idea what the price range is to hire state-to-state movers? Not people who will pack for you, just load your stuff onto their truck, drive it to another state, and help you unload. I realize this totally depends on how much stuff you have (I have an apartment full) and other factors, but I'm just wondering general price ranges. More than $1000?
