What do you do when your upstairs neighbors aren't being EGREGIOUSLY loud (as in, anything excessive), but due to sharing separate floors of an oldish house you can hear EVERYTHING THEY DO?

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.

Somebody posted about glasses earlier. Let's play "Who has the worst vision?"

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.

Beat that!

I was looking on the Ikea website for a bed frame and a few random odds and ends (like a TV stand, shelving, and something to put on my wall to make it seem less blank), but 98% of the stuff on their website within my budget isn't able to be shipped. What WAS available, my heart wasn't set on enough. There is a store in Brooklyn, but it's kinda a pain in the ass to get to (ETA: MEANING I don't want to actually GO TO IKEA because it would be a two hour commute on a bus, and then I would spend forever there, and I really don't have a spare five hours laying around).

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?

Do you have a drinking routine/drunk routine? What is it/are they?

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?

Don't you hate it when you want it so bad and no ones around!!?? Especially when you live in a town like grand rapids with no fun happening!! But since most of you are female you probably have never had that problem!!

Did I do something wrong?

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.

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?

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)

TQC, my supervisor asked to switch shifts with me, so she wouldn't have to close two nights in a row. Since she switched with me to close one of those nights (as payback for me working for her two days when she wasn't feeling well), I obliged, and I opened Thursday and was set to close Friday (today). I wrote it down in my pocket planner, and thought we were set.

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?

My friends and I got into a lengthy argument last night about "monthiversaries" - what months in the first year of a relationship should be celebrated/acknowledged.

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?

For the technophiles:

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?

Greasemonkey...

I have the greasemonkey add-on for Firefox, and I've been using the LJ Thread Unfolder script on there for awhile (longer than a year). In the last week or so, it stopped working. I don't even see "unfold all" as an option anymore, even though the script is still enabled.

Is there a reason why this would happen? Am I missing some new livejournal function that already does that?

My son and I are going on a trip to visit family tomorrow and my in-laws lent me their luggage. I was just going through the extra pockets and heard something rattling and the huge front pocket was FILLED with hotel soap, shampoo, conditioner, tea bags and whatever else they leave in hotel rooms for us to use. It's like they raided the housekeeping carts or something. My in-laws hardly ever travel. The last trip they took was like 6 years ago, so these soaps have been sitting in this bag for at least that long.

Is this as funny as I think it is?

Do you take the shampoos and soaps when you stay at hotels?

So my boyfriend isn't usually dumb, but we were discussing racism for some reason and I was explaining that a lot of people see racism as prejudice + power now, and that minorities cannot be racist by that definition.

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.

One of my supervisors is in the US right now renewing his green card and I guess they told him that he needs to move back to the US (his wife is American, he's not) by early 2010 in order to keep his residency status. His wife, who also works for the company, sent all of us an e-mail stating this on behalf of both of them. So he is leaving his job here at the end of next month. This makes very little difference for me as I'm also leaving at the end of next month, but soon I have to start training my successor, and my supervisor won't be back until a week after my successor arrives.

Should I e-mail my supervisor asking him if any of this will change the way I train my successor? Or should I e-mail him telling him I'm sorry he's leaving? Or should I just leave him alone? I have no idea what to do, this is a weird situation!

single-cup coffee makers

I was thinking of getting a single-cup coffee maker for my dorm room this year. And there are some Gevalia ones at the store I work at this week. The machine is only $9.99 so I'm assuming it isn't the best maker, but I'm ok with it being decent because I know most single-cup makers cost a lot more than $9.

My issue is that my school requires coffee makers to have an automatic shutoff. So here is my stupid question: Don't all single cup coffee makers shut off automatically after making one cup? Or am I a total idiot...? If not, do they make any with an automatic shut off?

soooo how can i make myself look like a hobo without a jacket?

edit: the rain has let up. i'm going to go right now because the store closes in half an hour and hope that it doesn't start pouring again while i'm still out.

Spiders

I just woke up from a nap and turned on the AC. Came into the living room and sat on the couch. Out of the corner of my eye I see something white moving on the black coffee table. It fell off before I could really see what it was but it looked a lot like a white spider. Or it could have been a piece of fuzz from one of the dogs that the AC blew off the table. I looked on the floor and don't see anything moving, but that doesn't mean much. So now I'm stuck on the couch because of my arachnophobia. So what do you think are the odds of it being a white spider and not just a piece of white fuzz?

If so could you tell me something about the place-anything, a story of a day you spent there-what it was like-the energy of the place.

I'm writing a story see and the main character lives in Glendale. I just know nothing about the place. THANKS <3

[Cephalopods] Need love!

(no subject)

I volunteer at a museum where I mostly work in the back with the dead things kept in drawers. Not entirely thrilling. The museum also has an aquarium, where a Giant Pacific octopus is on display. I managed to figure out the name of the woman who takes care of the octopus and her e-mail address.

I want to send her an e-mail asking her for advice about graduate schools where I can get a Ph. D studying cephalopods, as well as mention something about how if she ever needs a volunteer she is more than welcome to contact me. I cannot express, on any level, how much I would love to get my hands on an octopus.

Can you please help me out with my e-mail? Some parts of it just sound so awkward and choppy.

I want to watch a movie, but I can't decide what to watch.

These are the ones currently on my computer:
  • Inside
  • Audition
  • Calvaire
  • Cannibal Holocaust
  • Frontiers
  • Funny Games
  • Martyrs
  • Mulberry Street
  • Rabid
  • Splinter
  • The Hamiltons
  • The Orphanage
Uh, is it obvious enough that I enjoy horror movies?
So, TQC: What should I watch? If none of these, suggest something else

My mom has a Windows Mobile PDA. What are some apps I can put on there for her? I just put on Skype, Facebook app, and Epocrates. She's got 4gb of space so I can put lots of stuff on there.

What sort of apps do you have on your iphones/smartphones?
What is your favorite app?
Do you hate the word "app" as much as I do?

Why do you think anyone would email this to anyone else? I got this in my junk email. I figure they typed the address wrongly. This is the entirety of the email, mind you.

Credit Card?

Okay, so I'm a 19-year-old college student and I'm about to enter my second year of college. I'd like to get a credit card so I can establish some credit, but the only problem is I can't get approved for any credit card because I don't have a credit history. I've Googled "credit card for students with no credit history", yet every credit card that is designed for students with limited credit history hasn't approved me. There was even a credit card for students by Discover Card that stated you didn't need to have any credit card history but it didn't approve my application. I work a part-time job and when I start school again in August I'll be going to school full-time while still working at my part-time job. I really want a credit card so I can establish good credit so eventually I'll be able to get a car, but at the moment I'm having no luck. I'm assuming the terrible economy has something to do with this?

How the hell can I get a credit card if I don't have a credit history? Has anyone gotten their first credit card recently?

When you're approaching a stop sign and you're about to "stop", do you fully stop or do you just slightly stop and roll along?


Secondly, are there any other good games like WoW that I can try out? You get extra points if they're free!

After a pretty scary week of going to the hospital, I think my mom has finally be scared into quitting smoking...however, we are not allowed to discuss it. Can't even throw in a "you can do it". I've never smoked so I don't really understand and since she won't talk about it...I go to you guys.

Why do you think she won't talk about it?
Is there anything I can do to help her without being terribly obvious?
(I bought her some bubble gum but otherwise, I'm at a loss)

When was the last time you bought something that you felt guilty about purchasing?

At what point do you start worrying about the amount of money you have? I've reached less than a hundred dollars in my account and while I don't spend money often, I'm still worried.
