Where should I go?
I am a student, so cheap is good, though I haven't worked out a budget yet...
whens your bday?
what do you do to celebrate?
are you excited for halloween?
are you dressing up?
like all time favorite since it started, watch religously show.
mine is desperate housewives. ive been watching it since season one, its my guilty pleasure :D
my bday is on wednesday :) my mom is taking me shopping and my bf is taking me to a haunted house and to dinner at pf changs.
im excited for halloween. i usually dress up, halloween reminds me of being a kid. this year my boyfriend and i are dressing up as vampires. heheh.
teeth and all :D
now your turn to share :D
Must I now purchase hand weights, or can I just fill soda bottles with pennies or something and use that? Is there a reason why hand weights are so much more awesome than regular everyday heavy stuff with handles?
1. If you saw someone walking around with a black umbrella with a yellow happy-face pattern, would you think it was lame/dorky?
(I'm going to a concert tomorrow and there's this...thing... beforehand where I'll be spending time with the band and other fans outside for a while. But it's calling for heavy rain and this umbrella borrowed from my mother-in-law is the only one I can find on short notice that isn't broken. I've loved this band since I was 12 so my inner preteen is freaking out.)
2. If you don't care/want to answer another question, what's the last thing you've seen or heard about that you wished you thought of inventing first?
1. what are some of your favorite names?
2. what is your name?
You're current job pays $40,000 per year (gross), with full medical, dental, vision, life, and death insurances, long term and short term disabilities (all of which are 100% company paid and don't cost you a penny from your check), 401(k) (match 20% up to 5%), 3 weeks vacation per year, and 10 paid holidays. Problem is, your pay pays your bills, with nothing else leftover. Your spouse works, but only part-time since she's still in school. Once she's out of school, she wants to start a family, and would prefer to stay home with the kids. You also haven't had a raise in the three years you've been with this company.
You get an offer to go to work for an insurance company as an agent. It is 100% commission-based with no set hours. You work your own schedule, completely on your own. The company offers health, dental, and vision insurances (for $50/week), long and short term disabilites (free), 401(k) with a better match (35% up to 6&), pension, free vacations and trips, and a manager position within 13 weeks. They will reimburse you the $300 it will cost to get your insurance license. There is the very real possibility to make some serious bank doing the job (around $60,000 per year...up to $100,000+ after you make manager in a matter of months), but, as I said, it's 100% commission based. You could work your ass off one week and not have anyone buy anything, and you're SOL.
Do you stick with the steady income that you know is coming in like clockwork every two weeks, but barely pays the bills, or do you try your hand at the insurance game and take the risk associated with commission-based pay in hopes of making some better money?
2)What annoying things do your relatives do?
My cousin complains about how women are whores,etc, and then wonders why they won't screw him.
My questions are -- how do I find a primary care doctor / a general practitioner? And how much can an office visit cost me if I don't have insurance?
Google hasn't helped because I don't know what keywords I should use. I've used the numerous "find a doctor" websites, but the doctors usually have a specialty and (1) they seem really expensive and (2) this isn't really a specific problem, but a general pain and soreness all over my body.
I've called many of them up and they tell me an office visit can range from $100 to $300. That's way too much. I just need to speak to someone with a medical degree for about 10 minutes and get their advice on something. Is there anything else I should do?
Is it a trap?
mine was full house and yeah, i still watch reruns of it almost everyday. i'm lame.
How long did your illness last?
How intense was it?
Did you stay quarantine?
I swear- I got it (I had all the symptoms in perfect order, if could have been the regular flu, but since my friend had a confirmed case, we'll say that's the culprit) and it was done in a day and a half. That shit was intense- but after the fever broke, I feel fine. A little weak, but fine... That was the easiest flu ever.
Mine in comments...
2. Is it difficult to start your own exotic pet business? Got any tips?
3. Is it a bad idea to have a honeymoon in St Lucia in the Carribbean in early September? I was told it was the hurricane season.
Do you have any favorite colors that you think are unusual? What are they?
I think azure is a nifty color name.
Spiderman! Mostly just because I grew up on him and, unlike Batman, he actually has superpowers.
Besides those two, who is your superhero of choice?
I'm an X-Men fanatic, my favorites are Rogue, Wolverine & Gambit. But honestly, I love most superheroes. I'm a nerd.
I need some money and I am totally up for pawning stuff, but I don't know what kinds of things would get me the most money. The only jewelry I really have (that isn't fake/costume/cheap) is my class ring, and since it has my name & graduation date engraved in it, they probably wouldn't give me much for it, right?
October has been a sucky month y/y?
Does anyone else here get annoyed when someone who "loves reading" or is an "English major" has absolutely no sense of grammar, spelling, and sentence construction?
If you don't care: How's your day going? Mine is shit.
Where would you look for miscellaneous gigs, like one time house cleaning or something, for some quick cash?
So Who's going?
Ladies: A male coworker tells you a story whose moral was "stick with your strengths" and the example included a coworker that he specifically specified as female who wanted to be an FBI agent. He then goes on to explain that she did not have the build for this job and should just stick to what she is good at.
Are you offended?
Those with disabilities: Same coworker tells you another story with the same message; "stick with your strengths". He says "I can want to play concert piano all I want, but what if I'm deaf?"
Does that offend you?
Administrative Professionals: Again, this coworker is hammering this message in. He encourages you to find what you're good at through others around you. He tells you that an administrative assistant noticed he was very organized and complimented him, saying "you would make a great admin!". He then snorts and says "well, I guess I'm good at it, but THAT's not a very good thing to do."
Are you engraged?
Everyone else: Would it make you feel uncomfortable to hear these things from a coworker? What if these things were said during a speech at a professional conference? Is each thing separately enough to make you conclude that this person is disrespectful or would it take the combination of the three to convince you?
In what ways are you and your parents/family similar? In what ways are you different?
Feel free to post pictures, so we can see if there's any family resemblance!
Unrelated: When your jeans get holes/tears do you get new ones, or continue to wear them until they're ready to disintegrate off of your body?
his cousin is a manager on the tour, and he was found dead about 3 hours before the show.
i did get to see him sunday night, but i want more fun....ESPECIALLY since it's probably going to be a while before they tour again as the E street band, if ever.
Ticketmaster is going to refund my money in the next few days, they said in an email.
however, there is talk of rescheduling the show.
There were only 9 shows left in the whole tour after last night....open dates scattered throughout.
But what if they reschedule?
Will I have to rebuy them from scratch?
i have no experience with cancelled shows.
Do you think he will be beaten up? Isn't this a great costume idea?
Are you sick of Halloween questions yet?
I'm excited. Usually we just go to the husband's parents' house.
I've never cooked a turkey before. Do you have any tips for me?
What else should I make besides turkey and mashed potatoes?
I know it is early to start planning (still have 3 weeks), but I think I want to invite my friends over too.
2. Ever played D&D, Vampire the Masquerade or gone Larp'ing? Share some stories/experiences of these?
3. If you really don't like games/give a damn, what's a tradition you participate in that you can see dying out in the future?
Will you wish me good luck?
And a real question,
The 2009 World Series winner will be???
Feel free to reveal as many details of the case that was involved as you want/can.
I'm probably somewhere between the Upper crust of society to upper middle.
TQC, what is she doing in the bathroom with a laptop? Srs and nonsrs welcome.
( Collapse )
what did you do?
did that relationship change your view on love? how?
how do you feel about that person now?
I need your help:
-I'm a freshman in college and I really want to break out of this high school mentality. How do I go about doing this?
-Do you have cliques at your workplace?
How about an apple?
Anyone use the string and doorknob technique, or did you just wiggle it until it wiggled loose?
Did you get anything in return?
What weird thing has your body done lately?
2. Would you rather work one full time job or one/two/more part time jobs?
3. If you could have any job in the world (assuming it's legit... not like... be paid to do absolutely nothing!) what would it be?
4.Is there anyone you work with that makes more money than you but is completely incompetent?
5. Do you like deskjobs with routines or would you rather have something that is almsot a complete surprise each day?
What should he give them? Under $200 probably, and they do not live locally.
How do you feel about gay marriage?
Do you find that this hinders you in writing cursive? I feel that my hand moves to jerkily as the words go on.
What's your favorite online game?
If you won the lottery would you take it all in one lump sum or get it in payments?
Do you usually write in cursive or print?
What's your favorite type of ice cream?
Universal healthcare- yes or no?
Did you know that if you get raped your insurance company could drop you due to HIV risk?
I am thinking a full sleeve dragon made of flaming barbed wire and skulls would be good for starters.
eta - it's saying "your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience."
How the hell can I force myself in?! srs and non srs!
The ones online that i'm looking at seem a little vague.
*Edit: I mean that I would like to watch the tv shows that I downloaded on my tv instead of my computer or my ipod.
He's really lazy and his eyes are a little gooky but he's not vomiting so I don't really know what to do? I don't want to call a cab and go to the pet ER (the trip alone and back will be like $60) if it's nothing but I don't want him to burst into fire if I don't.
What do YOU do?
EDIT: ok the vet said to monitor him/give him liquids and take his temp again in 45 minutes but that was like an hour ago so I'm going to the vet with the little booger.
In the meantime, why don't you post a picture of your dog and tell other people how cute their dogs are?
( Collapse )
do you think you can do better?
other q: how graphic does your porno need to be in order to turn you on? super close-up see-every-pore Dolby Surround Sound graphic, or can merely a vaguely suggestive blurb in an LL Bean catalog get you going?
Have you ever been in a friends with benefits relationship?
Will you share how that unfolded and ended?
Have you ever read the Red-Headed League by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle? If so, how would you go about teaching a ninth grade class about the story in an interesting way that they'd enjoy? The SO is currently doing student teaching and will probably die on the spot if he doesn't come up with something by tomorrow.
If not, what is your greatest accomplishment of the day? I paid off my credit card bill in full! Yay!
A guy I'm dating played me a song called "With Annukka" in which the chorus goes something like: "I hadn't remembered to take my meds for a few days / and thought hey, this is love / then I remembered how things are and took my meds / and after an hour I realized this is love after all."
2. Does it matter to you if your SO has a completely different taste in music, movies, tv shows, books etc. than you? Which if these would matter the most?
Is it in bad taste to dress as a religious figure (i.e. Jesus, the Pope, Buddha, Gandhi, a rabbi) for Halloween?
What's your opinion of Scientology?
What are some fun things I could get up to on Hallowe'en night (a Saturday, just to add insult to injury) that would help take away the pain of missing a great weekend full of parties and frivolity? Bonus points if said activity is Hallowe'en-themed and can somehow include my sixteen-year-old brother.
If you were away for the night and your roomate/on-again-off-again SO turned their phone off, what would you assume they were doing? (If you were home, they would likely be waching tv)
Have you/do you own any sex toys? If so, which is your favorite? If not, what would you like to have?
Have you ever owned any cyberskin? Are they worth the inflated price?
What do you want right now? (material, food, emotional, any will do)
For instance, there's this play called Dog Sees God about the Peanuts in high school, and Schroeder is gay and everyone else is a homophobe. Pigpen eventually smashes Schroeder's fingers in a piano, and Schroeder kills himself. Shit like that taints my childhood faster than blood in my Coca Cola.
Should I take the class and be sleep-deprived every Friday or should I just forget about it?
2. What instrument would you play?
I feel that if I'd seen it in theaters, I would have fed off the other people's fear and jumpiness. As it was, meh.
What is the last thing you bought that was totally unnecessary?
Chiquita Banana's Halloween costume. It's cute, but not necessary.
What is your current food vice?
Archer Farms' Monster Trail Mix
( Collapse )
Are my lentils ruined?? If not, do I need to do anything different when I cook them, since they're bloated and all?
Aaaand if you don't know/don't care, from what source do you get most of your local news? National news? International news? Or do you not keep up with news at all?
Edit: I assume that it's related to the movie, at least!
What was your favorite computer game of the 90s? Screenshots are not only advisable but nearly mandatory. Discuss!
I don't have a problem staying up--it's getting through the next day that I have a problem with.
So, TQC: how do you function the next day after an all-nighter, or at least running on only a few hours of sleep?
Note: Both coffee and energy drinks make me feel very groggy/run down, so those are out. I have to make it from 8:15 in the morning until 3pm, then I can come home and take a nap.
How long did it take?
How much did it cost?
Did it tickle? I want one but am worried it will tickle too much.
So my question: If I have an overdraft fee, about how long does it take for the account to be closed? I'm 98% certain the transaction happened two months ago. I was trying to dispute it, but the bank wasn't helpful, and the place it happened with wouldn't contact me about getting a refund. And I can't open another account with another bank because I still have debt to pay.
Should I still wear my glasses? If I take them out every night will I be ok? Would it harm anything if I put a drop of the medicated eye-drops in with them while they soak overnight?
What do you smell like?
And if you're not wearing a shirt... carry on.
