all i remember is that he didn't complete it.
I wanted to give my mom a Wii-ware game for Christmas and I know that you can gift a game from one system to another. So I am staying up late even though I am tired to try to send her this game. But you have to be friends first, and you're not friends until both users have registered the other. So I've got both Wiis on and registered them on each other and now hers has mine as a friend but mine still doesn't have hers as a friend. So I can't send her the game. And I don't know why it would add one but not the other. I am so frustrated I want to cry.
Do you know why my Wii would do this to me?
EDIT: It works now for no apparent reason. Why are electronics so weird?
what do you think i should put on the cover? i can't think of much, since the diary's gonna be distributed to students from all faculties, hence it feels like i should design for all faculties.. give me some suggestions? :)
What kind of glue or adhesive technique would be best for what I want to do? I want it to be secure.

Does anyone ever admit to losing on the internet?
I can't find a ruler anywhere, and I need to know because I'm making a mix CD as a Xmas present.
I will edit mine in.

Do you think she made it home okay? Did she go somewhere and get stitches? How does a gash like that heal up on it's own, if she decided not to get stitches? D:
1] A job that pays minimum wage with no benefits.
2] A job that pays $1.50 above min. wage with benefits. But company's employees hold protests every few years.
If you don't care (or even if you do), what's your favorite late-night snack that requires virtually no preparation?

2. How many bras do you currently keep in rotation?
I am, but it's going to be a day full of board games, and we're getting off at noon.
Is this a polite way of saying my calves are fat? Because I do lean towards being big boned.... And they are rather large.

I took three classes over the summer and completely overloaded myself, so I took advantage of one professor's really lax deadline policy. I turned in all of my work in November and sent her an email to let her know. A week ago yesterday, I sent her another email saying that although I can see online that the assignments have been submitted-by-me-but-not-yet-read-by-her,
I don't even like Will Ferrell.
And I'm laughing.
Why am I laughing??
I hope you have an excellent holiday (whichever one you're celebrating) and a very safe new year.
I'm going to attempt to make an apple pie today. I'm bored.
currently i only have grants and scholarships to pay for school. i have enough that those alone are able to pay for my tuition and everything, and i still have enough leftover to pay for living expenses without having to work. i live with my parents so i don't have to worry about rent or food, but i do pay for my car, phone, etc. however i can't really afford anything outside of necessities. if my car was to break down i would be seriously screwed.
i was thinking of taking out a small student loan, maybe like $4k spread out across 2 years. so that i would have a little bit of extra money and also so that i can take summer classes. grants won't pay for summer courses and i can't afford to pay out of pocket. an obvious solution to this problem would be to go back to work, but i'm doing a lot better in school (straight a's vs. mostly b's with a couple of a's) now that i'm unemployed, and i would rather be able to focus on research opportunities. i feel like taking out a loan just to have money is a really stupid idea, but at the same time i'm planning on going to medical school which is super expensive no matter where you go and i'll be in a TON of debt at the end of it (like, $100k or more). what's another $4k on top of that?
so tqc, is this a really stupid idea or should i go through with it?
WTF is wrong? Should I just suck it up and call Toshiba on Monday and send it in for another warranty repair?
As if this isn't enough, last night my washing machine decided the water shouldn't shut off when it is supposed to. By the time we realized what happened, my laundry room, hallway, and kitchen were flooded.
Since bad things always seem to happen to me in threes, what's the next thing that is going to break/go wrong?
Which celeb would you be super sad for if they passed away?
Like "OMG, I can't believe she/he's gone... He/she was so talented."
I said Mariah Carey and Taylor Swift.
My friend said Beyonce..
We are babysitting a Japanese Chin and he is SO WEIRD LOOKING. I thought he was going home yesterday (I got home about 8 hours ago) and he is still here. When I got in, he flipped his gourd and was jumping up and down and like waving his arms and doing the goddamn hula and then he peed on my iPod a little (it still works).
Now he is asleep and grunting like a pro. My weiner dog who normally hates everything was SNUGGLING with him this morning. It is a doggie bromance.
Do you have a chimney?
It not, how does Santa get into your house?

Can anyone clear this up for me?

How far into christmas are you?

ETA: if not, do you think this will happen eventually or not?
I forgot how old I was once and told someone that I was a year older than I actually was. My mom corrected me, saying "I know. I was there." Also... this next question:
Will the mall - specifically Macy's - be less crowded this afternoon or Saturday? Or should I wait until January to finish my holiday shopping?
Ok, I'll wait. I was somehow thinking that everyone would be home with their families on Christmas eve, but had a sense that I was possibly being a dumbass. Thanks!

'You have a brain tumor. Though there is no discomfort at the moment, this tumor would unquestionably kill you in six months. However, your life can (and will) be saved by an operation; the only downside is that there will be a brutal incision in your frontal lobe. After the surgery, you will be significantly less intelligent. You will still be a fully functioning adult, but you will be less logical, you will have a terrible memory, and you will have little ability to understand complex concepts or difficult ideas. The surgery is in two weeks.'
Question is, How would you spend the next fourteen days?
Do you have a Christmas tree up?
What makes you decide to post a poll instead of a regular post?
Other than an excuse to tell you about my day, that long preface was to ask: Are you more sensitive to negative events on holidays or is the impact the same regardless?
Do you think tragedies are more tragic on Christmas?
What the hell is my dog? We've tried for years to figure it out, but we can't place him.

I do think male success in tertiary education is something that needs to be discussed. However, one rant by a local shit-stirring politician about this also mentioned how University degrees were becoming 'too common' these days, and I started to wonder;
Does anyone know if male success in education actually gone down? I was still in high-school when they passed a law here stating that children must be enrolled in school or another sort of approved training until they're at least sixteen. Completing highschool has really only quite recently been something that most everyone does, or that most girls do. It seems that educational success in general has never been spectacular among men, and it's possible that it's just that this has become a glaring contrast now that women are there are doing well at it. This would also account for the increase in University graduates.
I'm really curious about this but I have no idea where I'd actually find it out.
Traditional methods have failed.

My mother constantly generalizes about the sexes with the authority of a psychologist/sex therapist (which she is not). Things like "All women like ______", "Men always ____", and "Men never love their children as much as women do", etc.

Are you having a Christmas potluck? What are you bringing?

What is defined as failure or success in your family (in your opinion)?
Apparently I look like a sixteen year old despite having graduated college two years ago. When I was sixteen, people thought I was in my twenties.
Next year is shaping up like this - these are the only 2 options so far:
Find a job, with none being advertised in this shitty little state, or study a BA** - at age 23.
These are the only 2 choices, no smartarse comments - it's Christmas Eve :P
What would you do?
**ETA - Bachelor of Arts
Keeping TBS on all night/day to watch 24 Hours of A Christmas Story.
What was your favorite gift as a kid?
My mom got me a record player when I was a freshman in high school so I could play my White Stripes records. It was pretty badass, actually.

Have you ever received a present that wasnt meant for you?
i ask because i am wrapping some presents just now and realised i forgot to label some of them....
We have the basic things like flour, sugar, eggs, milk, salt, and tons of spices. We MAY have other things, but I don't know what to look for, so I don't know.
What kind of cookies can I bake with a really simple recipe that requires mostly basic ingredients?
it's 09:30pm and i'm getting drunk.
This is what is on the list
-Cookies, milk, half eaten and gone
-"Snow" footprints (flour on the boots, on the carpet... :D )
Can you think of anything else we can do?
I know its the thought that counts and all, that I shouldn’t complain.
But a “charitable donation in my name”? 100 bucks??? What the fuk???? I could use that 100 bucks to buy presents for my family.
Thanks for the gift…… I think."

Is this an appropriate response? For that gift? I've certainly felt like that with some gifts, but wouldn't with a donation in my name, I'd think it was great! What gifts HAVE you thought 'wtf' about?
I'm giving my Mum a box of recipes and meal ideas (often that we have on our regular rotation, just as a reminder of what the options are, she can rotate the cards through), I made it myself and I'm feeling nervous because I want to add more to it... I hope she 'gets' what it is for. Are you giving any presents that you are nervous about the response of?

- Two guys (three?) are having a debate whether they would prefer Gillian Anderson or Dana Scully and the former is described as a "highly neurotic actress" or something.
Two young kids, a boy and a girl, meet on an airplane. The boy is constantly asked "Can I help you" and he replies with "I don't know... can you?". However, the girl calls him out on it and makes fun of him. The two kids keep meeting in several stages of their life and eventually fall in love.
