Did you get to talk to them at all? Get an autograph?
Did the experience make you love them, or hate them forever?
My boyfriend recently met Corey Maggette (forward for the Golden State Warriors) and talked to him for about 6-7 minutes whilst selling him Best Buy merchandise. He said that he was just as nice as he seems on the court, and a hell of a lot bigger. Corey is now my boyfriend's favorite player on the Warriors, which was already his favorite team.

(also, I know to google, and I have, but I'm just wondering if any of you have anything you do specially that really helps, since most of the things on google haven't.)
what should i do? i'm going to the doctor the 20th. i really don't have much support from my family, yet i havnt told anybody.
if you're white, do you ever feel white guilt?
a friend once said she feels white guilt every single day and i thought that was really ridiculous.
Has there ever been a time when you did something nice for someone that you had no real reason to, and it didn't work out how you planned/wasn't appreciated? Will you tell me about that?
EDIT: WITH WORDS
How long did you stay?
Did you get anything out of it?
If you don't care about my ranch cravings, how many people live in your household? Do you share chores or is one person responsible for the cleaning?

I doubt I have either of those, but my lower left part of my back randomly started hurting about an hour ago, out of the blue. I haven't done any heavy lifting, exercising, or anything like that, so I don't think it's just a back injury. I was lying in bed when it first started, so maybe I was lying in a weird position for too long? I don't have any other symptoms that generally are associated with either, but I honestly can't figure out what's going on. :\
Also, it's not a constant pain. It hurts for a few seconds, goes away, comes back.
Edit: Going to the doctor in an hour and a half. About 45 minutes ago, my right foot suddenly felt numb. It isn't numb, but it...feels like it, if that makes sense. It feels noticeably different than the left foot and is ..heavier? It's weird. I like to freak out so my mom is making me go to the doctor, hooray. :|
When do you feel a little chubb-o-matic? When you're 5 lbs, 10 lbs or 20 lbs over ? (That would be 2 kg, 4 kg and 8kg for you others)
UPDATE: Chase messed up a lot of accounts and charged people twice on one transaction. It wasn't Sephora's fault. Happened to my friend too and it was Target for her. They said they're working on it and to moniter the account and everything should go back to normal soon.

ETA: i'm 22 and currently not in school because i'm not totally sure about what i want to do and more importantly, i've run out of money to go. i'm paying for school entirely on my own (through loans, scholarships and room and board i got from when i was an RA) and now that i'm not a full-time student, they want money from me and i can barely afford to put gas into my tank to make it back and forth to work.
if you don't care about that, what's the best movie ending you can think of?
According to your beliefs, do you think that a couple should be married before they have children?
What have you been day dreaming about lately?
I've been with my boyfriend for 2 years this March, and for the last 6 months I've been fantasizing about the day he proposes, or the day I tell him I'm pregnant.. We often talk about how we'll tell our parents or how we'll raise our kids.
In this day and age, it's becoming so common for people to just have a baby and then decide if they're going to get married or not. I'd really like to be married first and feel some [false] sense of security that we will be stable enough to start a family.
How was it?
I'm at a really well paying job right now (er, well paying by college job standards) and I'm going to graduate in June. My manager has decided that if I can't work 2-cl 4 days a week I have to take a demotion (and a $2/hr pay cut. I love that $2/hr!). As of right now, I am 4-cl due to a class I have to take as part of my major. This was absolutely fine for a year, but something pissed her off and now I have to pick up those 2 hours a day. I have until next quarter (March 18th) to make this happen.
I can probably swing it, as my only class extending past two is one day a week, so I can make that my day off.
If you were in my shoes, would you stick with the job or find a new one?
I was hoping to keep this one at least up until I start grad school. I've been there 3 years and made some good friends, but I don't appreciate the reasoning behind my needing to pick up extra hours.
I just updated to 2.0 or 2.1, whatever they just switched to, and now it won't update for me. New emails come in but the notifying number won't change unless I tell it to update. Annoying...
I've just been having a discussion on Facebook with quite a few friends about Israel and Palestine. So here are my series of questions.
What country are you from?
How does the news portray the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in your country?
Do you call it a "conflict," "occupation," or "disputed territory"?
How would your rate your knowledge of the issue on a scale of 1-10?
Who do you think suffers more currently in the region?
What do you think could be done to aid in the progress towards a sustainable peace?
If you'd like to include any civil discourse with your answers, great. I find it interesting to read the many perspectives of the situation. The issue is obviously a very divisive one, with many sides, and for most people outside the region it is impossible to understand all the complexities of it. Still, its interesting to hear other sides.
obviously it might be different from service to service but tell me about the ones you know, for a general idea! i have never used voicemail.
alternate question: what are some interesting things you have learned?
Like, "Like they say, the first pancakes are always thew worst". idk
Ive been doing zenni for a long time, and i remember when i got my first pair, i was thinking that they were a tad stronger than normal, but not in a bad way. Lately, I have been having trouble seeing and my eye doctor told me today that the prescription I had in my glasses was too strong for me. Are these different types of lenses? Do you know anywhere else, thats similar to zenni in price that wont be too strong?
dkdc? what are you stressing about right now?
I have a hunch that my phone isn't actually making calls when I call people. It'll ring and then not start timing the call until the voicemail picks up. Then again, I might just be calling people when they legitimately don't pick up. Has anyone had this happen to them?
My hair is shoulder length and sort of thin, so yesterday I bought a long thick ponytail attachment, and I LOOOOOVE it. I have never had hair this long and it makes me feel hotter than I ever have.
Which arm is the most flexible?
I would think this was very strange, which clearly it is. I think the hand is probably very rude.
the problem is that i have no idea where to throw a giant party. i live in a pretty big house, but we're renting it and i don't want to have to deal with the inevitable wear/tear that a big party would put on it. i've thought about renting a bar, but there are so many rules and i really want to have more of a house party than a bar night anyway.
my question is this: WHERE THE HELL SHOULD I THROW MY BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION? i want it to be so large and magnificent that i can literally invite everyone i know and tell them to invite everyone they know, but i'm really open to all suggestions.
thanks tqc :)
If this doesn't apply to you: What was the last song you listened to?
There's you and 19 complete strangers aboard a plane. Each of you has on a parachute. You're told that for every person that jumps off the plane and lands safely down on the ground below they get a million dollars. You're all been given proper instruction on how the chute works, etc. So you'll all be rich once you jump. However, you're told, one of you has a large Hello Kitty comforter in their pack instead of a chute. You cannot tell from the outside of the pack which one's different. Someone's just not going to be around to collect the $1,000,000. People start to hop out of the plane, but the plane's just above some low hanging clouds so the jumpers sort of disappear almost immediately and you can't tell if anyone's chute isn't opening. You're the last one on the plane. Do you jump?
Same scenario as above, except this time it's $10,000, and instead of 20 jumpers, it's now 100, and instead of 1 pack being chuteless it's now 3. 3 out of 100 jumpers won't make it. Will you jump?
You're in front of 10 doorways, which lead to 10 tunnels. 9 of the tunnels merge into a room which contains a million dollars, which you can keep. The 10th tunnel leads there as well, but midway through there's a trap door which opens into a 25 ft. pit. Odds are you wouldn't die, but would be badly injured. The tunnels are all dark and only lightly illuminated, but not enough to tell if there's a trap door and the trap door is 8' around and set to go off when you're in the middle of it (pressure point), so it's terribly unlikely you can grab the edge and save yourself from the fall. Do you go down one of the tunnels?
You're on a strange Japanese game show. There's 8 briefcases in front of you. 7 of them contain $100,000 each. If you pick any of them, the money's yours. The 8th briefcase, however, if picked, will lead to the show taking away your car, computer, clothes and all your worldly possessions (except the clothes you have on). So, 7 cases lead to riches and 1 leads to poverty. You can go ahead and select a case, or you can walk away empty handed. What will you do?
If you dk/dc, where did you/do you want to get married?
i want her to slowly get used to working out everyday but not be completely exhausted.
Do/Did you fight? What about? Did you have the same fights all the time?
What is your fighting 'style'? How about your SO's?
Does one person "win" more than the other?
EDIT: What is your definition of a fight?
I suffer from depression. When I was at college, I was able to see a therapist once a week, and it really helped me a lot.
But now I've graduated from college and I'm back on my parents' HMO, and I'm quite happy with it when it comes to everything that DOESN'T involve mental health. I can only see a therapist once a month for forty five minutes and it is not helping at all. I can go to group therapy once a week, but I tried that for a while and it...just wasn't working. I didn't really feel like I was getting any support, and I also didn't really feel like I had anything to offer to the other people in the group. We were all so different from each other.
I know that my HMO would be happy to throw as many pills as I wanted at me, but I don't really want to go on medication when I KNOW therapy works quite well for me. Are there any other options for me? I'm starting to really sink into this -- loss of sleep, not eating much, low self-esteem, and I seem to be spending most of my days either in bed or surfing the net, which just makes me feel worse. Add to this my inability to find a job, my boyfriend is several hundred miles away, and I'm stuck living at home with my parents and it's just one big clusterfuck of sadness.
What should I write instead of "fired" when a job application asks my reason for leaving? I know I can't badmouth my former employers on an app, but I can't think of a good reason why I'd quit a job and then be unemployed for more than a year.
DK/DC: How's the job market where you live?
I'm only really worried about it because I have to do two accompaniment performances in February, one performance of my own on piano (two songs) and then two flute songs. So much to work on. D:
will you post a picture of your selected celebrity?
Do you think that name brand products are higher quality than store brand products?
I'm a fan of selling/passing stuff on once you don't need/use it any more, and figure the boxes will be nice then. If you buy something used like that, does having the box and all make a difference?
Has anyone listened to the new Mumford & Sons album?
I love their song 'Little Lion Man' & was wondering if the album was worth getting. I've heard that 'Little Lion Man' is the best song on it, but the rest was ok.
I would also like to say that the new Ke$ha album is rather disappointing. The only good song is bloody 'Tik Tok'. Although most of you would say that's a shit song anyway, lol.
If yes, which ones?
1) What are some conspiracy theories you subscribe to/think are at least possibly true? If any.
2) Have any of you had feline leukemia or feline HIV positive cats? What were your experiences caring for them? Did they live long lives, short lives, were the vet bills insane, etc? At some point I'd like to adopt such cats because I hate that they are passed over in shelters, so there are things I need to know.
3) Say one day you up and vanish. Your family and friends and law enforcement have no idea where you are and you cannot be found. Where are you?
I'd like to think I stepped through some sort of invisible mid-air portal and wound up in some alternate dimension or universe.
ETA: Would you find it weird if someone in an office was walking around with their cell phone ear piece in their ear all day?
What do you use to help badly chapped lips? people tell me to use Vaseline, but I don't see how it could be good for you because it doesn't protect your lips from the sun. I've used soft lips, burts, and chapstick... they don't really do much for me.
Has anyone used KIEHL's products and if so what's your opinion.
Are you certain it wasn't a troll?
Alternatively, what's your favourite flavour of flavoured water, if you drink it? I've discovered I quite like the orange-orange and lemonade Vitamin Water shit. But the whole concept of "flavoured water" still confuses the fuck out of me.

My plan is to refuse to pay anything until the repairs are made, and then only pay the missing rent - no late fees since we had no idea we weren't paying what we were supposed to.
What do you think? Is that a good idea, or will we just get screwed over if we don't pay it all asap? The law is landlords have to provide a safe place to live, and the wiring is a fire hazard and I definitely don't feel safe with a big hole in the door, especially since someone actually DID break in through that door a few months ago. What should we do?
I feel like I won't live past my 25th. I am currently 20, my birthday is March 22nd.
Do you have feelings like this? Are we just being weird?

As a parent I find "Oh poodles!" or "Oh schibby!" popping up in my head all the time now.
I always want to spell "definitely" as "definately". =\ Maybe by making this post, I'll remember it's "i" not "a".
Also, if you've ever been in a spelling bee, what word did you get wrong? Or if you didn't get it wrong, do remember what your opponent got wrong in order for you to win?
Oof. Um, yeah, it was middle school and I got the word "failure" wrong. I could totally spell it directly after the bee, but its an honest scandal they put that word in there!
It's a typical Chinese takeout menu, so they have all the usual stuff.
Where do you go to meet new people?
Funny and srs answers desired.
i asked my roommate to help me cut up the onion tonight because it was making me especially weepy and he did 'cause he loves to cook. so now that it's done i want to tell him he can come have some.
BUT I FUCKED UP SOMEWHERE AND THIS IS LIKE THE WORST DISH OF THIS I'VE EVER MADE. so i don't want this to be his first taste. but i also want him to know i appreciate his help and his sharing his expensive wine work gives him.
i mean, it's still pretty good, but it's just not what it could be.
should i offer him some with the disclaimer that it's the worst i've done and there could be better first tastes in the future, or be like "NO YOU CAN'T TOUCH IT IT'S VILE"?
Is driving a stick shift car as hard/complicated as it looks/sounds?
So in other words: are any organizations taking clothing donations? I would clean the clothes before sending.
Should I send school supplies? I'm sure some of those are needed as well. I have a lot of new notepads at home.
Should I donate through Medecins Sans Frontieres Canada? Or USA? Does it make a difference?
Thanks! And sorry if it is a repeat question/series of questions.
I'm looking to acquire a white, male, Norwegian Forest kitten. I would like total white for the purely aesthetic reason the I already have a grey cat and a black cat. I require male because I have a female cat (apparently, it is easier to introduce a male cat to other cats rather than the other way around?) and I would like to name the new kitten Mr Mysterious. And I require a kitten because I already have 2 adult cats: one 9 and one 6, male and female. I do not require papers or pedigree with the cat, as I do not register my animals.
It will not be a big issue if the pure whiteness of the cat is marred by tiny black or grey patches (my current cats each have white on them somewhere unnoticeable at first). The big issue is that I need a kitten that is a Norwegian Forest.
I have found one breeder in all of Canada: Saskkats in Edmonton AB. I don't know yet how I feel about import fees from the US (I don't have a passport). My boyfriend's mother had an orange Persian shipped from Nova Scotia and it worked out very well, so I am not very worried about getting a cat shipped (although I would really rather not).
My questions are thus: There must be catteries in Ontario, but where? How do I find them? Does anyone have any experience finding a specific cat and having it shipped? Have you ever wanted a specific animal very badly and looked all over for it? Do you have a mostly-white, male, NF kitten I could have? How much do you think this cat will cost? Any info you think I might have overlooked?
How do you spell grey? "Grey" or "gray"?
1.) What breed (if any) would you choose?
2.) Would you want a male or female?
3.) What would you name your puppy?
Also, if you don't mind offering an opinion:
4.) What would you name a male Saint Bernard?
dk/dc: what's your favorite ice cream?
I want one just for the taste. A small is £2 for 7", the next one up is 9" for £4. They're both half price. Do I get the larger one as it's what I thought I would be paying, or just get the small one as that was all I wanted in the first place?

IDK if I should drink at the bar or at home. Which sounds like the better option:
#1 Drink at home, get naked, play L4D2
#2 Drink at the bar, hear live ska, either get some lovin' after or go home (to get naked and play L4D2)

So basically my department manager, is mad cause my sis took hours away from her niece, who works under us. She cut mine and my sisters hours but kept her nieces the same. My sis told a high up manager about the ordeal, and he arranged it so my sis could work another day. Basically my manager was off today and is calling our phones, 3 times total, threatening my sis saying she'll regret it. BTW another department manager works in the department, who is sisters with the other department manager, so yeah her daughters hours were cut. They're both Pissed. They want to go off on my sister on sunday which is when they all meet again. But some favortism has been going on since they hired her, which was in october. We've been working there a couple years or so. I'm not mad about hours being cut they always get cut this time of year. It's the favoritism, and unproffesional way they're acting. They're taking it WAY too personal.
QUESTION: What should be done? I work in a union place. Should I tell them? Tell the main store manager? See what happens sunday? Find another job? I'm confused. This is a crazy situation.
