What kind of cellphone do you have? What do you like/not like about it?
here is the problem:
my 23 year old room mate (alex) is the biggest loser/piece of shit on the face of the planet. He was home schooled by his mother first of all (I have no problem with this, because most people who were home schooled are smart). He lacks any kind of social skills whatsoever and therefore only hangs out with 17 year old kids (bag boys from the grocery store he works at). He works part time at publix and has no ambitions or goals in life at all. He comes home from work and plays video games/goes on the computer/watches tv/ plays dungeons and dragons with his stupid friends/ creates messes all over the house and never ever ever ever ever cleans them. I am actually embarassed to invite my friends over because he is so awkward and weird. every time I cook he invites himself to eat my food, he even sticks his unwashed hands in my food sometimes. when I buy food he eats it without asking and he even ate an entire pan of brownies that I baked in one night. He is the most lazy person I have ever met and I have lived with him for 1 1/2 years. I have had numerous conversations with him about picking up his messes and i swear its like talking to a wall because he never listens to me. He makes messes constantly, I literally cleaned the kitchen 3 times in 2 days because he fucked it up so fast. I told him that I am not his mother and he is expectd to clean up after himself. he straight up told me that if Im not his mother then he does not have to listen to me. this boy is so lazy that he dropped out of community college because he claims it is "too hard". I am sorry but I went to that college when I was in 10th grade and its honestly so easy to pass its like a friggin joke. The newest problem is that he just got a 16 year old girl friend.
My other 2 roomies and myself find this completely disgusting and we do not like the fact that there is statuatory rape happening in our house.
I told the land lord about it and she is making us all sign an agreement stating that you must clean up after yourself, blah blah blah.... AND there will be no minors to spend the night and any minor must leave the house by 10pm (thats what the 16 year old driving curfew is in florida). needless to say, he is not happy about this. so far he has not signed the paper and I guess he is thinking about moving out. of course its not official yet but I really hope that he just moves out because I honestly cant stand his bullshit anymore.
1.do you think that this is agreement with the minors is unreasonable? why/why not?
2. what would you do/how would you handle this situation?
3. what do you think about a 23yr old dating a 16 year old (shes in 10th grade)?
4. why is my room mate such a fucking loser asshole shithead?!
5. have you ever been in this situation before?
6. why dont people have manners or courtesy or respect for the people they live with?
edit: how the hell do you do a lj cut?! I tried using the cut button but something is going wrong. idk! im sry its such a novel but I am just SO needing to vent lol
editx2: I let him get away with it for so long because he was a nice guy for awhile. We were friends in the beginning. we fixed up and painted the house before we all moved in together and he seemed like a perfect match at first. I really would like to mediate the issue instead of losing him as a roomie. I feel like my boyfriend and I are maturing greatly and its almost like his maturity is regressing. we feel like we are living with a teenager. I am paying my way through college and cannot afford to lose his share of the rent payment and utilities payment. also, when we moved in together I bought a living room set on my credit card and my boyfriend and alex and I split the payments. so he technically owns one of the couches in the set as well as the cofffee and end tables. also the internet/tv/phone is in his name and his contract was signed for 2 years. This is a complicated issue and it is not as simple as just kicking him out (even though I think its ultimately going come to that in the end.)
2. what are some programs for a mac that let you DJ? As in, mix songs, etc.
3. do you sleep with or without socks?
did steve madden copy these shoes from another designer? I swear I've seen them somewhere else, I just can't remember where. I absolutely love them though...
Like, say a person is in community X, in which he or she is getting flamed heavily, but they want to know if anyone replied to a topic in community Y, a community with relatively little or no drama.
I'm just curious because I think some flame wars would end better if there were some way to opt out of the conversation and let the other guy rant forever unheard (by the other party at least!).
Also, it would help in situations where you make a post and people start getting into an epic discussion about some unrelated topic on your post and you end up getting all the messages.
It would also help you avoid getting spammed by creepy stalker types.
Is there any option like this on LJ?

Should I tell Buster he only has 26 votes, or will it hurt his feelings? How would you break it to him?

i just realised i don't have proper genuine friends anymore, after growing up with the same 6 people half my life. they're all in one country and i'm halfway around the world from them.
if your answer is yes, what did you do?
I love Eddie Izzard. Amazing executive transvestite <3
My dad usually makes bacon and eggs, but this year I ordered a half dozen croissants from a local bakery/cafe that just opened. I'm SUPER EXCITED because their croissants are fucking amazing, not the styrofoam shit you get everywhere else.
Where should we go?
I'm thinking maybe Portland?
Will you describe your skin type (dry, "normal," oily, combo, sensitive, acne-prone, etc)?
How's that working for you?
I'm currently using Clearasil StayClear Daily Face Wash Sensitive, which I alternate between bottles with Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming face wash. I have combination and sensitive skin. So far so good... been using these two for years and years.
Where are you in terms of birth order?

Can't they just admit with that as evidence that we Americans have evolved and perfected the English language?
i've been terrified for the last 15 years of a bird pooping on me. i saw it in Now and Then and my mom told me she got pooped on once, and since she's my mom i assumed for years it was inevitable.
(I'm legitimately curious, for the record.)
Our dog is spoiled and is allowed pretty much anywhere he wants.
Do your pets have any strange nicknames?
My dog is named Beaker, but we call him Beaker B. Kirby. :)
Edit: I just got my first copy of Paint Shop Pro since 4, and it's up to 11. For 4, I had a really awesome LJ community that offered all kinds of tutorials, but I can't find anything like that for 11. Does anyone here know where I can go? I'm so lost on how to use this thing!
I'm on a z-pack antibiotics. It would be a bad idea to take cold medicine on top of that, right?

What's for lunch? *or your next meal*
Is anyone else really not into Christmas this year? How do I snap out of it?
My husand the other day handed me a mug he had poured coffee in but changed his mind about drinking. He said "you can just rinse the mug out since my mouth didn't even touch it." I was shocked since to me old food residue is grosser than my own spit residue. To him, his spit residue is grosser than old food residue.
Lapland in Finland. Despite the many layers and insulating vests I was wearing, it was fucking freezing. The experiences I got from it were amazing, though. We went for Christmas so it was very much in the minus'.
Where's the hottest place you've been?
From memory, Singapore. The humidity was insane. Fiji and Australia could give it a run for its money, though.
This question is for people who like the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
In the third movie, did you realize that in the easter egg scene ("10 years later...") when Will Turner is coming back to land, that he was being released of his duties to the Dutchman because Elizabeth had stayed loyal to him? Had she not been there to see him, he would have been made to stay on the Dutchman? I totally did not grasp this myself but my clever friend explained it to me and I was super psyched by a happy ending (which I previously thought was a really depressing ending.)
Yeah, this feels out of place being so long since the movie actually came out, but everyone else I've talked to about the movie has thought the same way I had, that Will was stuck to the Dutchman for all eternity.
Also, PotC4 in the brewing bin. What do you think? No Will, no Elizabeth, just Jack Sparrow. Me, not so stoked.
Alt. Q1. If you don't have housemates, tell me something of your house organisation.
I have the cupboards organised by type. My new (otherwise awesome) housemate has been putting his vegemite in the sauces section when it is clearly not a sauce. The sauces section is right next to the condiments/cans section, so I can see the confusion and was going to explain it to him rationally. However, this does not seem very housemately. 2. What should I do instead? passive aggressive/vengeful tactics preferred. (non srs obvs)
Does anyone know how to fix this?
And yes, I tried google but everything just says "buy new speakers". I know it's a computer problem as 2 completely different speakers are having the same problem.
When I can remember my dreams (which isn't very often) most of the ones I remember have to do with:
(A) Being in a familiar house (mine, or a relative's or a friend's), except the house is much more elaborate and stranger than IRL. Except I still know it's _____'s house, so it's not weird or scary; and/or
(B) Secret passages and rooms within rooms (ex. climbing into an attic and discovering it leads to another attic, which leads to another attic...), which are just fun to explore.
Do you ever have sex dreams about people you know? I've had one once, and it was fairly boring.

Edit: I looked at some other aerators online and it appears that some have alarms that go off when the air pressure drops below 1 PSI. In other words, time for a new pump, and mom's on the phone with a plumber. This sucks.
Is anyone aware of any examples of this (on YouTube or w/e) being done by non-English speakers mimicking English speakers?

...make out and go to second base with Sarah Palin for 15 minutes?
...be locked naked in a small room with 200 spiders (non poisonous). You have to kill all 200 spiders by crushing them with your body by rolling across the room again and again
...go to a nude beach with your parents?
What did you use to believe that you no longer believe now?
I used to believe that Daddys could fix anything, the world is mostly good, my stuffed animals would come to life when I left the room, My bike was a horse/Pegasus/unicorn, and my dog could talk.

What type of dog would be good to get?
Facts: I have a kitty, we'll be living in a townhouse (able to walk the dog but not let it run in a yard) and I've never raised a puppy (though fiance has). It'll come from a shelter so chances are it'll be a mix breed.
I love the taste of brown sugar sooooo much more, omg. I could eat it plain, I think.
2. Our Coca-Cola Christmas tree has some new additions. My mom has put some small plush ornaments around the bottom of tree skirt, and Chiquita Banana keeps going in there and getting this one toy, a seal, and bringing it to her crate. She's not chewing it up, she's just snuggling with it. Should we give up the fight of getting it back and just let her have it?
3. I'm in the mood for an emotional movie. Should I watch:

Which instrument(s) would you like to play?
What is your favorite instrument?
I play the flute. I played a lot back in my high school days and stopped for a while and now I'm getting back into it. I really want to learn to play the violin/fiddle. I would want to play more fiddle-type music rather than classical violin type stuff.
If you have played the violin/fiddle before, what could you tell me about learning to play it? Is it feasible that I could teach myself or would it go better if I had an instructor? What would be a good beginner fiddle to buy and how much money would be a reasonable amount for such an instrument?
Do you smoke cigarettes?
Have you heard of electronic cigarettes?

apparently they are different units. this is kind of a homework question in that it came from my homework but i do not need to understand the difference to be able to do it. the textbook doesn't explain it and i'm not finding anything by googling.
ok that makes sense now will you post pictures of your pets and their names?
I want to buy my sister a season of One Tree Hill on DVD for christmas. I've been looking on amazon and the cheaper versions have "Repackage" in the title. Does this just mean that they started producing them again? Basically I want to know if there is anything different in this version that will influence her being able to watch all of the episodes?
Link for evidence: http://www.amazon.com/One-Tree-Hill-Complete-Repackage/dp/B002BAW6HM/ref=pd_sim_d_1
If you have one, do you think it's useful, especially for students?
I'm considering asking for one for Christmas. My parents were going to get me a Netbook, but its out of their price range and I was thinking that this is something that could be within their price range and still be useful for my classes. I figured I'd just save up and purchase a netbook after Christmas and my birthday in January.

I put leftover turkey in the crock pot all day with potatoes, celery, green pepper, onion, carrots, chicken broth, tomato sauce, garlic, Italian seasonings, cayenne pepper... and now I am nomming. It's fantastic.
I think we might do turkey cranberry quesadillas tomorrow night.
Yesterday I think I replied to someone here about how their roommates moved out with very little notice. I said something about how I was glad my roommate hasn't done that. Today one of my roommates decided she is moving out in two weeks and is only paying half of her share of the rent, which is due in two days.
On that note, what should I do to get even? (non-serious answers, obvs)
