Twitter users: Is there any way I can subscribe to mobile updates whenever someone mentions me? Like, if they were to tweet something with @fame in it, I'd like to get it on my phone, but not get all their tweets on my phone...and idk if that's possible. Help, please?
Yes, this was already posted. Not even one sarcastic answer, or even one about how twitter blows. I thought I'd try again.
New question: if you could be in any musical (you have an amazing voice, for the purpose of this question), which would it be, and who would you play?
I'd be Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady
( Collapse )
Possibilities include peanut butter sandwiches, mac n' cheese... well, that's about it.
Tell me about the scariest moment in your life?
anywho, in the article they say, "several campaigns have been launched to circumcise men."
what do you think slogans/concepts for these campaigns could be?
I rent a house and I've never had to sign a lease, but I've had roommates screw me over left and right by moving out with little notice. What can I do to get this to stop happening?
Edit: If I do type out something, what should I write to make sure I don't keep getting screwed over with people moving out?
Also, I have a roommate now that flat out told me that she's only going to pay half a month rent for December because she's moving out. She told me this 3 days ago. Would there be anything I could do to make her pay her full share or would I be S.O.L. because there is no lease? (I'm really not going to go after her because I did find someone to move in and pay part, so I don't need to)

I only got a score of 52. I kept trying to move the square with the arrow keys and failed pretty quickly.
Edit: Oh my god I seriously cannot get past the square and I've played around ten times now. I'm so frustrated but determined.
why is chat always dead lately?
i can't think of a third question, so just use this post to talk about the benefits of alcohol.
When was the last time you were so absolutely overwhelmed you actually threw in the towel and gave up?

Have you ever dreamt up any awesome new product ideas?
Why does Firefox think that "donut" isn't a word but "donuts" is?
I want to get my SO a new iPod for Christmas. Currently he's using my old 8gb Nano. He has about 16gigs of music on his computer, and downloads a couple of albums every couple of months or so - in short, the amount of music grows at a glacial rate. Therefore I was thinking of getting him a nice practical size - my memory told me that there were 30gb iPods, which would be more than enough for a very long while.
Ebay says that 30gb 5th gen Classics are about $230.
Amazon also says that 30gb 5th gen Classics are $224.
Apple Store says that BRAND FUCKING NEW 160gb players are $249.
So it looks like I am going to be shelling out $250 regardless of whether I get a 30gb or a 160gb.
So, the questions.
1) What the fuck?
2) Is there anywhere that I can get a new 30gb Classic for oh, a hundred bucks or so? Because I'm all for technology, but seriously, this is ridiculous.
Why is Dolly for Sue, who is apparently a perfectly ordinary doll, living on the Island of Misfit Toys? This gripping debate raged on for decades, until official word from Rankin-Bass recently decided the issue: Dolly for Sue is a "misfit" because she has psychological problems - she feels unloved.
Do you buy that explanation? Why do you think the doll was on the Island?
So...to any of you who have a 360:

There was a Christmas song playing in Target the other day and I went over and changed the song (it's one of those CD stations where anyone can pick the music) and some lady turned around and gave me an evil death stare like I just ruined her whole Christmas because she couldn't hear the last thirty seconds of Frosty The Snowman. :|
If not...what's your favorite holiday treat? I LOVE ribbon candy and peppermint bark.

My parents celebrate two anniversaries, but I only know that one was in January and one was in February either the day before or the day after Valentine's Day
Can someone clarify usage for me?
There was a pause.
And *everyone* sitting in the area just smiled/sporfled, because...GREAT JUSTICE. FOR BIKEBUNNEH.
TQC, are we all going to hell for laughing at this guy's massive/loud/indignant umbrage?
Personally, I XD'd, and then I felt bad. But not very bad.
When did you last see a musical?
sometimes i crave cigarettes, and right now i'm craving white castle. i've never smoked before and i've never even seen a white castle irl, let alone having eaten there.
Aside from knowing the amount of the loan and my vehicle's VIN, what else should I take with me to the bank, if anything? I figure they can look up all my personal information since I have an account with them.
How old were you when you first smoked weed(and how old are you now)?
- Did you do it yourself, or did you hire movers?
- Approx. how much did it all cost?
- If you had to do it again, would you do it differently? Or the same?

What's your Obama forecast looking like?
UGH RAINY AND TERRIBLY COLD
I thought all dog's bellies are supposed to look skinny when they're laying on their back. You know, like their rib cage is more elevated than their belly, but one of my dogs belly is just puffed out all the time like one of those children with severe malnutrition. The vet's never said anything.
Last February, the external hard drive I got for Christmas in 2007 crashed, taking with it all my music (boyfriend told me I didn't need to back it up elsewhere...stupid, I know).
Is there any way I might still have access to the Nutcracker music without having to purchase it again? I have no idea where the hard drive is now; my boyfriend took it to get it looked at and I never saw it again.
That's why I'm really tempted to buy a new computer. It would be used mostly for photoshop, editing and maybe some gaming, so should I buy a desktop or a laptop?
Desktops with better processors are cheaper, of course, but I also want to be able to take my work around. Yet laptops can't really take up multitasking as well though.
ETA: Oh I forgot to mention, I do have Boot Camp on my MBP. Although Windows works fine on it, there's still some problems with it being able to run certain programs. Sony Vegas Pro is really wonky on it for some reason. Plus the programs that come with Windows, ie Windows Movie Maker, doesn't even work.
What do you miss most about your old OS?
What do you love most about your new OS?
Feel free to plug in appropriate browser names as well if you recently made a switch and want to brag (IE to FF, FF to Chrome, Safari to Opera, etc.)
ETA: My own answers...
Not switched really, but I have to use a Mac at work, because one program we rely on is Mac-only (plus my boss is a Mac geek). I use a Vista laptop at home.
I miss Windows. Everything about it. Lots of programs I love are Windows-only or the Mac version sucks ass. Also, I miss being able to alt-tab between my windows (I can command-tab between programs, but can't see individual windows if I have 2+ open in a single program--it's tough to break the habit)
The startup time is amazing, it's really smooth and sleek, and while this isn't so much because of the OS, the monitor is fricking huge *__* I prefer laptops at home, but on a desk, I like having a big monitor.
I also recently switched from IE to FF, just because I heard so many nice things about the extensions. Those nice things were not lies ♥
And would you get the same pet again, or a different one?
Thanks to apparently no reason we are now faced with this dilemma and I was curious to hear people's answers, though I think it'll be a few months before we get another - if we get another - pet.

SRS ANSWERS ONLY
WHEN I SAY SRS ANSWERS ONLY I MEAN SARCASM
ETA: approximately for 30 people
1. Where did you buy it?
2. Would you re-purchase it? (meaning, now that you own it and know what it's really like, do you think you made the right choice?)
3. Does it have a hutch?
4. What does it look like? (pics are extra awesome, including stock photos)
5. Why is it so hard for me to find a desk that I like enough to feel confident in buying it? (I want a hutch, enough space for my monitor, stereo, and printer, and an L shape, preferably not in white.)
Do you prefer digital or film?
My brother-in-law is planning a surprise party for my sister and I created an event on Facebook, set it to private then accidentally invited my sister. I uninvited her after a few minutes and deleted the event, so hopefully she doesn't get the message.
The circumstance: I'm 3 hours away at uni, haven't been back for about a month, but I go home for a month in 2 weeks time. There's a few things happening, a birthday, and our christmas ball, but i'm not too bothered about them. It seems pointless going back when i'm going to be there in 2 weeks anyway, but i'm having real pangs for home at the moment.
ETA: or, I could go back tonight, spend thursday + friday at home and come back saturday in time for the ball...only thing being I want to see the fam and they'd all be out on thursday.

A weird thing happened to me at work today. I was serving a customer, my manager was beside me filling out details for a customer taking a bonus card. I heard the man say that he was just back from Basingstoke (A town 500 miles from here) This made me think of my ex, who lived there. So, she's taking his details. I was only half listening when I heard him say his first name which made me laugh to myself as that was the ex's name. When he told her his surname I was really surprised. It was the same surname as my ex.
This link has confused me....who is Morgan Freeman meant to be representing? The fact he's with Clint made me think Million Dollar Baby, but I wouldn't have said that was a role he was famous for playing
ETA - The movie was Unforgiven. I found the same page elsewhere with the movies listed.
I'm going with crispina bread, gobs of mayo, an inch of thinly sliced turkey, some tomatoes, and a bit of shredded iceberg lettuce. With a mixer (half pink lemonade, half iced tea) on the side.
Am I the only person here who even remembers that commercial?
If a chocolate chip cookie recipe calls for a pinch of Dark Hatred or a dash of Seething Malice for All Who Have Ever Wronged You, what would you choose for those ingredients to use in a real attempt at the recipe? (The rest of the recipe does make excellent cookies on its own!)

How much do you dislike packing on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being the least and 5 the most?

Every year before this year, I would watch the lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree on TV. It was like a tradition, really. Now I live in NYC. I went down there tonight, but it was pouring ass rain and there were too many people and I had a weird view of the tree. So I decided to come home. Now I'm watching it on TV and I regret not being there right now.
