My basic need/ want is a device I can take with me everywhere and plug into my stereo at work/ home/ car and just down load all of my music to it. Like, 50 albums I'm thinking. Once I download, can I erase? If I download an entire album, can I erase the songs I don't want to make room for more? There array of iPods one can buy is seriously overwhleming - where do I even start??? ...and any other tidbits of info you think might be helpful to a newbie are appreciated!
ETA: I'm looking at an iPod Nano....it seems simple enough - and totally pretty. Think this would serve me needs?
Mine are Mr. Rogers, Carl Sagan, Walt Disney and Albrecht Dürer
Who or what made you come here?
What was your first LJ name?
Do you know of any others that might be cheaper?
What's your favourite taffy flavour? I think mine's root beer float.
I know there is a way of doing this because someone explained it to me the last time I got a new computer.
So my fellow Lj-ers who are up at this hour.. can you help me out?
Am I right to feel hurt and annoyed?
- YouTube's commenters and their apparent inability to understand ... even 1/4 of the English language.
- And people who drive below the speed limit.
Have you ever thought about either of these?
Please, someone needs to explain to me how their brains work.
Why, WHYY, is it AT ALL necessary to drive below the speed limit?
And whyyyy take more time inventing ~cool web-lingo that makes you sound like a monkey instead of just typing half way normally?
I know I sound pretentious but ... we should have this discussion.
Edit - Oh bawwwwwwwww you guys, I never claimed that my grammar was perfect, I'm complaining (which I guess isn't allowed on TQC anymore) about people whose grammar is seemingly, almost intentionally bad.
And I get it about the driving now :)
I hate guys with highly defined abs and I also hate sitting directly next to someone on the subway.
I'm redecorating my place soon and basically I'd like some pretty things to look at :)
How did you normalize it?
i get along with them fine but the little sister is getting on my nerves the more i spend time with her. she's the type of person who refuses to be wrong, and it's just tiring having her 'correct' me on trivial things when i know i'm right.. she just won't have it. once she even had the whole family vote on whether her pronunciation of zebra was right, or whether mine was. how do you deal with people like this?
I was on Lexapro 10 mg for two years, and it stopped working completely. So my doctor prescribed me Fluoxetine 20 mg yesterday, and I've heard that some people have had a lot of bad experiences with this drug. I'm aware that all drugs have a risk for giving you bad side effects, but I've been hearing that this one has caused more than others.
What other anti depressants have any of you been prescribed? Did it work for you? Why or why not?
What do you feel about the word THINK??
srs only pls.
So...its a weekend night and you are going to a singles venue. You have that feeling that you want to hook up tonight. WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR IN A HOOK-UP-EE?
EDIT O MATIC- would a nice blazer help?
I'm looking at an infomercial for space-saving hangers; they seem pretty neat.
What are you doing today?
What is the longest you have been a house guest?
Do you give your hosts a gift for allowing you to stay? Do you help with household chores when you are there?
Any house guest horror stories?
We are doing a secret santa at work and everyone has to get a gift costing between £5-£10 (that's around $15), except the gifts are just going to be picked at random on christmas eve, so we haven't been assigned someone. I work with 10 girls and 2 guys and ages range from 16 to 27.
What do I get??
Which sounds more delicious?
a) Chocolate-covered peanut butter crackers
b) Chocolate-covered Nutter Butters
If I covered them in semi-sweet chocolate, would you eat them?
b) Maybe. Depends on what else is being served.
What is your first name?
I for one spent several years wondering when I was going to get my four "collie-birds"...a dog that can fly? Sweet!
-They're my favorite!
If yes, what is/are your favorite song/s by them?
-Hysteria and their cover of Feeling Good.
If yes still, are you going to their concert nearest where you live?
-I'm going to Madison Square Garden on March 5, and I've never been more excited about anything!
If no, what is your favorite item of clothing to wear?
-My Pittsburgh Penguins hoodie.
have you ever read any of chuck klosterman's writing? if so, what did you think of it?
what is the best hip hop album you've ever heard?
de la soul's 3 feet high and rising or common's resurrection (back when he was known as common sense). 'i used to love h.e.r.' should be your next download
what lj community do you lurk the most?
AND/OR: name an opinion of yours that you have always had, you always will have, and will never change.
I'm waiting for my new phone to come and I've been sitting here so I decided to check the website since it said out for delivery... and now the status says I wasn't available to sign for it. Which is bullshit, because I've been sitting right here. My FedEx person has done that before and sometimes will RUN from my door back to his truck when he delivers a package.
I'm gonna have to IM my mom to get her to call because... they have my pbone... but wtf? They don't even leave notes?
*OH P.S.: it was a package the required a signature.
What's the weirdest thing you've found left behind in an elevator?
Have you ever witnessed someone break down at work? How did that go for them?
I've always had GREAT service at Hampton Inns, and earlier in the year I stayed at a Country Inns & Suites that was very impressive.
especially people with obnoxious plastic frames!
are you able to watch 3D movies comfortably?
Today is subtlesphinx's birthday. She's 21. What will your gift be?
If you are running Windows, what are the top minesweeper scores? If there aren't any, you should play until you win and then answer. :)
Mine are Beginner: 6 sec, Intermediate: 28, Expert: 120.
Why does Wii discriminate against gingers? Is it that hard to offer more hair colors for Miis in the interest of being more inclusive?
I'm trying to decide whether to go tonight.
Is dental covered by your employer health benefits?
2) What's your favorite channel?
3) What's your favorite show? (still running or off air)
4) Do you think television was a good or bad invention?

Do you say "cussing" or "cursing"?

Does he have kids now?* The fling was only 4 years ago...
What has surprised you recently?
*For what it's worth, my picture is of me and my 2-year-old nephew, so it might not be what it looks like...

Which of these affectations of a potential SO would be dealbreakers, or, in other words, what style quirks or qualities can you just not put up with in a potential significant other?
do you support having christmas lights up year round?
what are your favorite scents?
ocean, winter air, hotel sheets, a certain someone
i'd heard it call the other white meat but third??
i'm assuming chicken is still one, but what is the OTHER other white meat?
Do you finish doing it for them? As in, take the dry clothes out of the dryer, throw the wet stuff in and dry it for them?
Or do you throw the stuff out of the washer, wash your stuff, put theirs back in/throw their stuff out of the dryer, dry your stuff, put theirs back in?
Or do you just dump it all on the floor?
What's the proper protocol? My roommates is always leaving her stuff in the machines for days on end and I don't know if pulling her stuff out and putting it on top of the machine is rude. I feel like doing it for her is rewarding her for being too lazy to go downstairs to do it herself.
I have an old Magnavox TV. It's probably from the mid-90s. I have a Sony DVD player my parents gave me. It's only a couple years old.
Everything was working fine. At Thanksgiving my mom and I were going to watch a DVD. A buzzing sound came out of the speakers when we put the DVD in. It's not a quiet buzz that could be ignored. After playing with some wires, I unplugged the red colored connection and the buzzing stopped. We had sound, but only from the left speaker, which wasn't a big deal unless there was a scene where sound came from the right speaker, and that couldn't be heard well.
I just put back in the original cords (I'd taken them to work). The buzzing occurred again, but not as loud, but it's still annoying. It goes away if I take out the red connection, so there's no sound from the right speaker on the TV.
What is causing this, the TV or the DVD player? I don't think it's the cords since I've tried this on two different cords. Is there a way I can fix this? If so, how?
TL;DR: One of the speakers on my TV messes up when I play a DVD. What is going on?
Are there any actual female characters from the show that you like? I think it's a given that most everyone likes Ellen.
I always loved the original Ruby, back when she was blonde & sassy. Also I liked what they did to Jo when they brought her back, especially in the last episode.
If you were in a remake of an old photo or painting, who would you want to be in the photo/painting?
What would you put on the list? Do you think you would be able to complete it?
If you have a list will you show me?
I just made my first list and I am really excited to be doing it. I am waiting until the new year though due to christmas, family in town, birthdays, and moving.
This is my first list.
What's it to be, TQC?
(And if I stay in, what movies/tv shows should I watch on netflix that stream instantly?)
ETA: Also, are you a good judge of character?
Good quality noise-cancelling headphones (and enough batteries to last round-trip), OR
Ear plugs and sleeping pills/some kind of medication to make you drowsy?
I love my Philips headphones so much, and meds-that-make-you-drowsy never work for me anyway.
What is your new name?
also, do you have Raynaud's syndrome/phenomenon? did you ever get ulcers/infected fingertips?
So since I have a ton, I was going to bring some with me. They've been used, but they are clean and look nice. My Mom thinks this is rude, that if we bring anything it should be newly bought. I don't think it's rude at all, I use the containers and there's nothing wrong with them.
So, is this rude? Or a nice thought since she doesn't have any and I have extra?
If it matters, the leftovers stay at her house. She would keep the containers.
ETA: You guys are awesome. Thanks for the confirmation that I'm not THAT strange. =)
-The Young Ones
-Green Street Hooligans
I do have a tonne of other British movies but I can't be arsed to look through my collection.
Well I'm off to watch The Young Ones.
Will you post some of your favourite jokes/gifs/macros/etc. to read & look at when I get back?
What aisle did you head to first when you went to the toy store?
What was something most kids your age liked but you never really got into?
My answers in comments.
If you don't know what that is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacral_dimple
Can you suggest some quesadilla fillings for the one I plan to make myself tonight?
Do you get mad when people forget that it's your birthday on your birthday, or forget to tell you happy birthday?
A friend of mine just celebrated her birthday today. She's very quiet, and didn't post her birthday on Facebook. Only a few close friends of ours and I knew. Everyone else was "surprised," mainly because it wasn't on Facebook. Then they wished her a happy birthday.
Which brings me to another question. For those of you who use Facebook, do you remember birthdays without Facebook's little reminders, or do you only know if Facebook says so?
What about your favorite secular Christmas song?
Mine are "O Holy Night" and "Blue Christmas".
Thanks for solving my dilemma, TQC! I've decided to eat pizza and beer. Well, drink beer anyway.

What is your sex?
What is your gender?
Does your gender match your sex?
eta: also I have considered just mashing them, but I'm trying to think outside the box.
What kind of pudding do you think they like?
Christmas plans? + points if they involve fireworks or New York City.
I really hate to start a road trip in this sloppy mess. We got at least 3" today on top of the 20" we had already.
2. Is it associated with Xmas?
1. My parents telling me I'm worthless (this is a short version of the cruel things she suddenly decided to spew at me in the past two days, and have been throughout most of my life, going so far as to say I; just a failed Lisa. The Miscarriage, had it come to term would have been the RIGHT Lisa...) and placing severe stress on my relationship with my fiancee. Likewise, the stress on our relationship due to parental intrusion nearly lost me my 4 years of dating and three years of engagement (waiting until my ASL/Deaf Studies Program end to mary officially)
2. Yes. I was told I've ruined every Xmas until since I was 15 years old, 10 years past. And now, I've ruined THIS Xmas before it even started just because I wanted to spend my holidays happy and uninsulted.
Will you tell me some songs you're digging right now so I can add them to my playlist for my flight home tomorrow?
have you ever gotten to see them in concert?
I hate you guys.

Do you actually enjoy family get-togethers for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah etc.?
What's something totally unrealistic that you want for Christmas this year?
The first one was a Hanukkah present from my mother in law a couple years ago. The second one was a Christmas present from my aunt last year. The third one (it's a mini and kinda cute) is a holiday present from my manager.
I could make pulled pork, ribs and brisket at the same time...
ETA: You're married. :|
