if someone was describing a person you've never seen before and they said to you "he has a pseudo-jewfro," what would that mean to you?

(there's no right answer... i'm just trying to see what people think of when they hear "pseudo-jewfro.")

1. What should I eat?

I only have: Eggs, frozen spelt bread, barbeque sauce, tofu, lettuce, beans, moldy cheese (maybe salvagable), a tomato, mango salsa, pickles and many condiments.

Leaving my home is not currently an option.

2. What are some fun things to do on Ambien/Lunesta? Besides sleep or cook.

delivery is not an option.

Do you go through tqc phases? If so, do you find that your tqc phases have correlated directly with your life being down the tubes? Are you generally a reclusive person?

You know when you wake up in the middle of the night really thirsty... what liquid do you crave? I usually want milk or LOW ACID orange juice.
Are you familiar with low acid orange juice? You should be.

edit: AND if you live in NY/LI and you got your tatas done where'd you get them done and how much were there? And are you happy with them?

What do you think of cosmetically altered tatas?

Finding an old-ass movie...

Is there some sort of website that's equipped to help me remember the title of a (very) vaguely remembered movie from my childhood?

IMDB isn't an option, because I have no idea who starred in, directed, produced, etc., or even the year it was made.

It's a movie about a boy who goes to a beach house on a (NE?) shore every summer and has a best 'girlfriend' next door neighbor that he hangs out with each year. When they're about 12, they get to the beach, hang out, have a fight one night, and after he storms off, she drowns. When he comes back, he sees her ghost (on the beach or in the water) there. It had to have been released in the 80's, I can't quite see it being a 70's movie. I'm 27, and I saw it when I was 10 or under...maybe that would help.

Here's hoping!

What is the name of a movie where there are teenagers in a car, the guy driving turns off the car's headlights so the stars are just flying by and he ends up driving into some kind of farm tractor, killing some of his friends? I feel like it was a absolutely terrible movie.

Guys, why is the drunk girl outside my dorm building screaming like a maniac? People are yelling out their windows for her to shut up and go home, but she's still out there screaming. At first I was like "Wow I hope nobody just got hurt" but then it just went on and on.

...And now she's yelling back at the people something about 'sucking her twat'. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being classiest, how classy are you in comparison to this girl while you are intoxicated? I don't know if that even makes any sense, just go with it.

ETA: For those of you who have done the 30-Day Shred or atleast attempted it: After the first run-through of Level one, how long before you felt up to doing it again? I just started it today and I can already feel my thighs hating me.

This is really vague but my Google-fu is failing me.

I read a quote a while ago, the gist of it was, 'loving life for the sake of life is unquestionable to those who do, and unimaginable to those who don't.' It was way better written though and that might be quite off.

Does anyone know the quote I'm talking about?

What are some things that your parents, siblings or room mates do that just gets on your last nerve?

For me, it's when my dad doesn't fill the ice cube trays. Yes, it's minor, but it's irritating when you want a cold drink and there's no ice.

What are some general things about your house or apartment that annoy you?

The tap water tastes like ass. We bought a purifier pitcher for that little problem, but Mom or I always end up refilling it because Dad seems allergic to taking responsibility. Also, having to use a pay card for the washer/dryer, and not being able to do laundry BECAUSE THE FUCKING COMMUNITY CENTER IS LOCKED AND I CAN'T GET TO THE CARD MACHINE TO PUT MONEY ON THE FUCKING THING.

What are the good things about your apartment or house?

Just about everything else. ^_^

What are some good things about your annoying house mates/parents/siblings?

My dad does take some responsibility now and then; he washed the dishes, cleaned out the microwave and is putting my mom's CDs away while she's in the hospital. (nothing major, she just had some trouble breathing and is there to be checked out. She's coming home tomorrow)

Imagine that you're standing in front of a fountain, just enjoying the pretty water when all of a sudden you realize that a baby just fell in and is sinking to the bottom! There is no one else around. You are his only hope.

If you want kids in the future/have kids:
If you save the baby, you will never have be able to have a baby of your own. If you already have a kid, your kid will get sick and slip into a coma if you rescue the kid.

If you don't want kids:
If you save the baby, you will never be happy again.

Will you save the baby?

What's the last thing that freaked you out?

I was trying out group therapy for the first time yesterday, and there was this guy there who said that he has vivid, detailed, colorful daydreams of killing people when they do something kind of annoying. I don't think I'm going to be going back to group therapy anymore.

What's the last thing that made you laugh?

My dad stole a bunch of candy from my mom and hid it, so my mom stole a bunch of cookies from my dad and hid them as well. Now they're trading for hostages. LOL.

Follow Up Question from Years Ago

A long while back someone asked this question:

What music do you like to have sex to?

Someone answered with Explosions in the Sky and I fell in love with them.

So, what music do you like to have sex to? I seemed to find a handful of great stuff when this question was asked previously!

If you know of Explosions in the Sky, can you give me more suggestions along this path? I have Broken Social Scene and American Analog Set; are there bands (possibly instrumental) that I'm missing?

should i get one of those designer perfumes (as i always have) which go for about $100, or should i settle for a small small $20 bottle of vanilla fragrance from body shop? i've always liked the smell of vanilla but... i'm not sure if i want to smell like food.

do you guys generally prefer the smell of designer perfumes or something more 'natural' like vanilla?

I just added a new friend on facebook and just about every post on my news feed is about her adding new friends. I don't want to hide this friend completely, but there isn't an option to just hide the 'new friends notification'. Where is the page with the sliders where you could adjust how much of one type of posting you saw?

Or, if it's no longer there, how can I remove the 'Girl is now friends with Boy, Girl, Mom, etc'?

Background:Way back in September, I posted about which ipod I should buy. I ended up buying a 160GB Ipod classic that can hold around 40 000 songs. Part of buying an ipod with so much space was so I could get out of my current music rut and diversify, so to speak.

Question Recommend some bands to fill up the space? Not in any specific genre, just music you like and think is awesome.

How many cameras total do you own, tqc, and what kinds?

I have 2 digital cameras (Canon and a craptastic Fuji I'm trying to sell), 1 film camera (Yashica), 1 camera in my cellphone, and 1 webcam (Labtec). Technically I also have 1 old VHS camcorder that my dad left me, but it's fried :(

If you could collect anything in the world, regardless of cost/storage space/etc, what would you collect?

I'd have my own comparative collection of native plains animal skulls and skeletal mounts; foxes, wolves, gophers, porcupine, deer, bison, coyotes, songbirds, etc. Or books. Just any kind of good book as long as I can fill shelves and shelves with them.

i have a power point presentation that i may have to present on monday (people can volunteer to go first and after that she chooses randomly) and i know for a fact that at least 3 people volunteered to go on the first day and probably more that i didn't notice. the presentations are 10 minutes long and the class is 75 minutes long. so i figure there will probably be 5 or 6 presentations, depending on how much discussion there is and how long it takes people to set up.

i am completely unmotivated to do this powerpoint and i'm finding that i'm not even as interested in the topic as i thought i would be. should i work to get it done by monday even though my chances of presenting are pretty slim or forget about it for now and work on it on tuesday when i know i'll be more motivated and i'll be at school for 5 hours with nothing better to do?

1. I was treated so poorly at my local dealership's service area, I want to write a letter to the head of the company and one to the head of the dealership and let them know just how angry and disappointed I am. I doubt this will elicit any response from either, but should I ask for my money back since A) they did not diagnose my problem correctly (which is what I paid for and why I took it there instead of to my trusted mechanic who is handling it now) and B) they were so unprofessional?

1a. If they don't give me anything in return for my angry letters, can I dispute the charges with my credit card company since I didn't really receive the services I paid for? I am absolutely livid and feel I was unfairly charged but don't know the details of how it works for something intangible like service...

2. I have a travel mug from Starbucks I use 5x a week for my instant breakfast drink. It has a weird twist top mechanism that does not come apart. What is the best way to clean the lid? I have googled and found nothing and it's frustrating (and gross). What I'm doing now is boiling some soapy water in a cup in the microwave and then soaking it to get the milk-gunk out as best I can.

Can I sync my ancient 3rd-gen iPod to a new Macbook Pro? old Power PC Mac Powerbook (ca. 2005) is still running Tiger and can't be upgraded much beyond where I am, because it lacks the Intel chip. Also the power supply is going on it; it works about half the time and requires special positions and jiggling. Rather than try to keep it going with dinosaur patches, I'm considering buying a refurbed Macbook Pro if I can find a black one (so it won't discolor), or if need be an aluminum MB Pro. But I have this ancient third-generation iPod. You know, the pre-clickwheel kind with the four buttons. I have no need to upgrade this thing; it runs fine for my purposes.

It looks to me like Macbook Pro of any sort does not come with Firewire, and of course the ancient iPod syncs via a dock connected to Firewire. If I get a new computer, how the hell do I sync my old-timey iPod? There must be some kind of adapter/converter, but googling produces an avalanche of confusing results, none of which is helpful to me at all.

Cut and dried

I've had a tough day and kind of a depressing week, so I have to ask

1. Is cutting all that it's cracked up to be or is it just a fad?
2. Can anybody just pick up a razor and start doing it, or is it better to consult a trainer or a self-help book (Cutting for Idiots)?
3. Would you recommend I start on the arms or legs or is there some sweet spot that novices just don't know about?
4. If I don't have a razor handy, what's a cool backup bladed item I can use instead?
5. And lastly, how do I know I've cut too much?

My best dude friend (who lives in my dorm complex and I've known since high school) is turning into a whiney little bitch. He's whining about pointless bullshit all the time, doesn't shut the fuck up about how good he is at x, and has generally been pissing me off recently. He always asks me to get shit across the room for him, but completely fucking ignores me when i do the same. Then when I say "dammit man i asked you to do that like five minutes ago", he starts fucking whining and keeps reminding me of favors he did for me and how thankful i should be. He also refuses to say thank you for anything, like when he needed money and i lent him a MOTHERFUCKING BENJAMIN and I had to wait around and say "... you're welcome, by the way".

TQC, how the fuck do i tell him that he's being a gigantic fucking asshole without him throwing a temper tantrum and whining more? I want to actually fix the problem, not get rid of it.

My Mind, It is Blown

So, nothing is on tv, Horton Hears a Who is on more for background noise. I don't know what triggers it, but suddenly I have an epiphany - I think the Who's Horton heard might be the same Who's down in Whoville the Grinch tried to terrorize... I tell my husband my new-found theory and ask did he ever put that together and he says no.
