I'm going to a Government of Canada career fair tomorrow! I was wondering if I get asked to submit my resume, do I need a cover letter? Should I customize one for each department that I am applying to?
And if I am submitting my resume with the objective on top, should it say something along the lines of "i want to work for a worthwhile organization" or "challenging part time position"? Should I customize that for each department?
I thank you in advance for reading this and/or attempting to help me!
How do you think a salad consisting of spinach, apples, grapes, sunflower seeds and fresh mozzarella sounds?
What kind of dressing would you use for it, if you used one at all?
Are any of you versed in katakana? If you are, will you tell me how to pronounce サリア ? I can find charts comparing the characters in katakana with characters in romaji, so this should be easy for me, but I still can't decide if I'm doing the vowels right. Help?
If you can't or don't want to help, will you tell me what your favorite book is? Your favorite video game?
Can you "come around" to romantic affection?
So one of my female cats is always in my room, like 80 percent of her time is spent in here, but I haven't seen her in several hours which is unusual. Where the hell is she? I keep imagining all these scenarios that end up with her dead. And I can't sleep without her in my bed
i'm trying to register on the playfish forums (the forums for pet society/restaurant city/etc) and i'm not receiving most of the emails i'm supposed to. i've tried resending the activation email three times but it's not going through. i've gotten other emails from them so i know they have my email right, and i'm not getting anything new in my spam folder.
wtf do i do?

I am about halfway through cleaning my room and I am just now starting to feel tired. Should I go to bed, wake up early and finish cleaning or finish cleaning now and wake up whenever I feel like it?

If you lived in NYC and had the opportunity to get tickets to any show filmed in front of a live audience (Daily Show, SNL, etc.), what would you pick?

What are some things I should make sure I don't forget while I'm packing for a five-day trip? Serious and non-serious.
Guys, I have serious anxiety over flying. I've never been on a plane in my life but last year when I seriously considered it for the first time, I had a panic attack so bad that A) I had to breathe in a bag to not hyperventilate and die and B) that was the thing my doc finally put me on Xanax for - AND ALL I DID WAS LOOK UP PRICES FOR FLIGHTS.
This Christmas we want to go to NYC to visit some friends and see the city in all it's splendor. While a 14-16 hour one way road trip with my husband might be pretty cool (thinking of stopping in DC to check the Smithsonian out), obviously that cuts into time we could be rocking out in the Big Apple quite a bit.
HOW THE FUCK DO I STOP FREAKING OUT AND GET ON A GOD DAMNED PLANE? I AM A GROWN UP AND THIS IS RIDIC! :[

It's getting to be that time of the year in a lot of places - when it's cold and dry. What are your favorite moisturizing hand creams and moisturizing lip balms?
(My favorite lip balm has been Blistex's Daily Conditioning Treatment, in a little peach pot, but I'm kind of a lip balm junkie and am always open to new recommendations. My hands, however, have never had a problem with being chapped, and today is only the SECOND day of it being cool and dry here and already one of my hands is pretty badly chapped. :( Ugh!!)
Why on earth does the Gynocologist leave the room while the patient gets undressed?

Or, what is something that makes you incredibly happy? Why?
How much is your rent?
Is this just for you or 2 people or what?
Where do you think would be a good spot for a very small tattoo of a tree?
I know that's what I want to get, but I can't figure out a good place. I want it somewhere on my arm, wrist, or hand but everywhere I draw it on makes it look awkward because the roots don't look grounded so it kind of just looks like it's floating.
If not, do you have any tattoos? How many? Do you regret any?
you're having sex with a guy, and right when he comes, he screams at the top of his lungs "MY SEMEN WILL IMPREGNATE YOU!"

I have Word 2007. How do I number my pages at the header? Like how you have to have a header that is Lastname 1, lastname 2 last name 3. I still haven't figured this out.
Do you like concerts? If not, why not?
I love concerts, but I was flabbergasted earlier when I asked a friend who loves the Decemberists if he wants to go see them with me. He said no because he dislikes concerts. o_0

I alternates between not getting enough while having too many anxiety dreams, and catching up on weekends by sleeping for like 15 consecutive hours.

Have you read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson? What did you think of it?
What book(s) are you currently reading?
I'm baking some coconut shrimp tonight. The box says to preheat the oven to 450F, and arrange the shrimp in one layer on a pan. Then it says to lower the oven temperature to 425F. This is before you even put the shrimp in! So what in the world is the point in putting it on 450 in the first place?
How has your day been?
i'm going out of town tomorrow for almost 2 weeks.
what am i forgetting to pack?
what do you usually forget to pack?

HAY GUIZE I'm getting one of those new iPod nanos. What color should I get, other than purple or silver?
So an ex who pretty much just stopped speaking to me has been randomly leaving me facebook comments but then deleting. I asked a question in my status and he answered. An hour later, he deleted it.
What does that mean?
I'm torn between calling him out and asking or just deleting him-

I get to meet Margaret Atwood on Sunday. It's just a book signing, but it's a big deal to me. She's been my favorite author a long time and I've always wanted to hear her read. I have nothing witty or intelligent to say to her, though, without sounding like a huge sap.

Inspired by my Social Psych homework from this weekend: What social norms do you not conform to?

Now cross your legs, indian-style. Which calf is on top?
Which do you consider your dominant hand?
Do you consider the age of 35 to be old/what do you consider to be "old"?
I have a character in a story and a couple of my friends keep referencing him as "the old man" and it annoys me. I think they have the wrong impression of him if they're thinking of him as old. Unless I'm mistaken, because I didn't really think of 35 as old? "Old man," I'm thinking is at least 60.
I have 2 days off and no plans.
What should I do?
I'd prefer to not spend a lot of money, and I don't drive, but I can go anywhere in New York City/its surrounding area.
If your username were the title of a tv show or movie, what would it be about?
Mine'd probably have some kind of fantasy setting with teens and a Really Hot Villain that half of the teens would angst about being attracted to. And dragons. There're always dragons.

How many tic tacs is too many tic tacs?
Because I'm going through them like no tomorrow.
p.s. If it should be "are" instead of "is", sorry. I repeated this sentence so many times trying to figure it out that it just sounds like gibberish now.
The hubs might have gallstones, and therefore needs to cut out bad fats. We don’t normally eat fatty meats, and we’re okay drinking fat-free milk, but we’re stumped on cheese.
What brands, flavors, and varieties of fat-free cheese exist that don’t taste like plastic, vomit, or wood?
I'm looking for good humor books- not just comedy, but books that are funny, and entertaining. How about more romantic themed, but not harlequin?

Anywaaays, I'm moving in with him soon and HONESTLY (and fuck I feel ashamed for this) but it makes me a bit uncomfortable :/ I mean, I'm totally fine with anyone straight and am totally for straight marriage but when I get hit on, it makes me feel VERY awkward.

Would you rather be dumb and happy, or incredibly smart and miserable?
When I put on my headphones on my laptop there is a tapping noise. But the noise is like tap (stops for a while) then tap again.
WTF is it and how can fix it? Thank you!
