You get a magic genie of some sort who kind of rips you off and you only get one wish and it is that you can become amazingly talented at one thing of your choice with absolutely no effort on your part. You would not be the best in the world at it but maybe top ten. It can be anything from painting to speaking german, ballet, cooking, playing the violin, mopping, whatever you want.

What do you choose?

Can you go to a physical even if you have your period? or should you reschedule

And if you cancel a physical... do they charge you?

I can't call right now the office is closed and my appt is at 8 am which doesn't leave me much time to find out .... :(

I live in Ontario, Canada if it makes a difference

What is one of the more endearing things your mom or dad does or used to do?

Is there a recurring theme to your dreams?
What did you dream about last night?

Almost EVERY night I dream that I'm cheating on my boyfriend with some random figment-of-my-imagination boy. In real life, I'm perfectly happy with my boyfriend, and love him, and would never cheat.

Do you have any family members that make you just.....Image and video hosting by TinyPic and continually stun you that they're going to be on your family tree for FOREVER?

I sure do. My adopted third cousin is a total trainwreck. Seven kids at 35, none from the same baby daddy - they have all been in state custody AT LEAST once. She added me on facebook and constantly posts about men she is trying to bang (her words), guys she has banged , her life "goals" such as moving to South Dakota (?), and various other ridiculous things. I haven't seen her since I was three, as my mother banned her from ever coming near me (after some VERY strange things she did to me). Oh, not to mention that at 16, she went on Sally Jesse Raphael on one of those "I'm 16 and I Want a Baby" shows. Winner winner.

I've got you under my skin

Last night my boyfriend told me that this girl he dated in high school claimed to have one of those decorative half marbles (like a mancala bead or one of the things you might put in a vase or a fish tank) under her skin on her shoulder. He says she claimed it was there since she was born because her mother swallowed it. He also said you could move it and flip it around and it felt like glass. I call shenanigans on her story. So WTF was it???

When I wear my hair down during the day for work I either wear it curly, or straighten it. Curly is my natural (ringlet curls) so when I straighten it my face look skinner! Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can make my face still look skinny when I wear my hair down and curly? Make up options to enhance my cheekbones, without extreme blush?

I have taken to saying "terrible!" a lot, mostly in a sarcastic way when my housemate eats two slices of my bread or something and apologises profusely, or similar.

In order to not become like the "random" teens, what words can I use instead. Creativity appreciated.

I am having a birthday/housewarming party. can you give me a generic invite script? My creativity is dead today. There's a pool table if that helps.

I tried googling dream interpretations but I couldn't find anything to explain mine. I had dreamed that I overheard news that my cousin Shamus had drowned, but I was still in bed, no one told me specifically, and I didn't see him drown. What could this mean? It felt real, so a part of me is worried that it actually happened, but I'm pretty sure it hasn't. It didn't, he just texted me back, so it's just a dream. Phew.

I would try googling this, but I don't want to risk getting a virus on my PC in the process of googling lol.

My Norton System Works expired, and it's not in my budget right now to renew it. I usually just use my PC for gaming, so I didn't think it'd be a big deal, but I don't want something slipping into my computer somehow.

Is there a well known virus protection software I can download for free that works well? And thoroughly? I've never had to download something besides Norton updates and I used to use Adaware a long time ago, but now I'm absolutely clueless. I'm afraid googling stuff will only lead me to fake sites that are virus' themselves.

Do you ever feel paranoid when you're walking to your car in a parking garage?

How long have you felt that way? Any reason why?

It started for me once I drove myself to school for the first time. Plus, my school has been having incidents of car theft and mugging this past month. I've chosen to park in an open air parking lot and take the school shuttle to class.

Another mac question: I backed-up as per usual on time machine, then had to get a new hard drive. As this one has snow leopard on it, and I don't have the disk, the option to restore from time machine isn't really possible without going back a few steps.
However, I have a lot of data on my iphone which I would rather not lose, is there a way to restore the library properly, or to put everything from the phone to the mac?

ETA: Also, as a result of the whole new hard drive thing, when I open iphoto, it says it is on a locked disk and then quits. How can I fix it?!

Do you have a journal on another site aside from LJ?
Is it public?

If you had a blogspot or something similar that was just about impersonal stuff such as classes and volunteering, would you make it public?

Can I exchange a bra at Victoria's Secret for one that fits after I've worn it? This bra is a lie!

Edit: It probably is unlikely. I'll check the receipt that is at home. In the event that I cannot, how do I shrink my boobs? I guess I can just buy another one. It fits, but after a while, that 4-boob thing happens. 4-boob is the bane of my existence.

I'm thinking about renting a theatre to play a movie for my birthday, but I might need to acquire the movie rights to do this. I have NO idea how to do this, so my questions: Have you ever done this? How does one go about getting the rights? What movie did you do?

If you haven't done it, what movie do you think you would want to rent a big screen for?

Me: The Dark Knight is what I'm wanting to do. 8) Though I can see myself doing The Lord of the Rings sometime...

Sore back


I broadened my sports routine to improve the strength of my back. I started pilates yesterday and holly molly it hurts. It hurts a lot. I am at the library trying to read and I feel so uncomfortable in every position because of my sore back. What can I do to relieve it?

Please dont say hot shower. I cant take a hot shower at the library!

My manager keeps expressing interest in promoting me. The only thing that would make me take the promotion is that I would get about $1.00 per hour raise, plus probably get a few more hours per week. Other than that I have absolutely no interest in the job, and talking to a few people I work with they also say that the only good thing about getting the promotion is the raise. I have no interest in upward mobility in the company otherwise.

Do you think it would be worth it?

If you had a deaf child would you get them a cochlear implant?

ETA: Since a lot of people are probably going to say they'd let their child decide (which would generally be my opinion on such matters as well), I'm going to mention that the implants are more effective the earlier they're used, so by the time the child is old enough to decide for themselves, an implant might not be a useful option.

If your 16-year-old daughter has always gotten made fun of for her nose (she has Haylie Duff's nose), is incredibly self-conscious of it, and has wanted plastic surgery for years, would you let her get it?

Our three year old just peed on the floor. I understand that potty training is a learning process but um.... I'm really mad but her dad is a little less so. He is like "oh well she is fine" and I am like "she peed on the floor dear.....PEED ON THE FLOOOOOOOOOR". Am I over reacting?

Can you go here - http://deadbythirty.jovana.id.au/cast/ and let me know if the 5 menu icons under the title appear in a straight line, a row of 2 and a row of 3, or something completely different? If they aren't in a straight line what browser are you using? When you reset the page do they sort themselves out?


Thanks to everyone who took the time to look, it must just be my browser being special.

FarmVille questions. The rest of you can scurry along to the next post

1. They've already had ribbons for the tractor and the seeder.Do you think they'll have one for the harvester? I ask because I have a shitload of gas and I've been saving it up in the event that the ribbons are thrown out there, but I'd really like to use them if that's not going to happen

2. What the hell are mystery boxes and how do I get them? These are the boxes you need to complete the ribbon, not the gifts you can send one another

3. How many crops have you mastered? I've got 8 crops under my belt. It's my goal to master them all

4. How many more ribbons do you need to complete overall? I need 14

5. Lastly, which TQC person is the most valuable neighbor in your game? For me, it's jenm. My agricultural empire would be a bit less if it weren't for her previous help, and her continued help (if she's reading this)

I'm student teaching with someone who I would not say I am close to in any capacity. I emailed her to tell her that I have a funeral to go to and today she asked me who died.

Is that rude or weird? I was kind of caught off guard since I didn't volunteer that information in the email.

What is your favourtie oddish sandwich filling?

I'm a nursing transfer, and I waived my intro biology course when I came here because I had already taken upper division biology courses.

I'm now finishing off my biology minor and need one more class.

Should I take intro biology? It's lecture 3 times a week with a 3 hour lab once a week and probably will be really boring.

Or should I waive it and take genetics? It's lecture 3 times a week and will probably be more interesting, but considerably more difficult.

Which class should I take?

Intro Biology

If you choose other, what class should I take? I've already taken microbiology, anatomy and physiology I & II, pathophysiology and I'm taking pharmacology so those are out.

DK/DC: In college, did you ever take classes that were harder just because they were of interest to you? Or did you just try and take easy A classes?

Questions On My Mind Today

1) How many hours of sleep do you get most nights? Do you wake up feeling energetic/refreshed?

2) Local high school senior I know committed suicide last week. I've been watching the local newspaper and seen no mention of it other than the obituary on Sunday which didn't mention the word "suicide" (it just said he died at home). Having never know anybody to commit suicide before I'm wondering if this non-coverage is typical?

(I should add for clarification that I live in a county with about 100,000 people for the whole county and the local paper tends to focus on local stories. And a 6 year old died in an accident last month and there was a big article about how terrible it was this happened.)

Recently an elementary school in town burned down, displacing about 300 or so students. The local church offered to house them (as in conduct school there, not boarding students or anything) for $1250 per day.

*This isn't a cost per student, but a cost that includes holding classes there for the day~ for sixteen classrooms, plus a basement for lunch

Does that seem like a lot of money?

I had a group project due today. My professor just sent an email to all of us asking us to rate our other group members and list what they contributed to the group. One of the girls really didn't do anything at all but print our final copies but I feel awful actually saying that. If you had to evaluate a group member that pretty much did nothing would you actually say that? I feel bitchy and I don't want her to get a shitty grade ugh.

What are some interesting things you currently have memorized? And by interesting, I mean pretty much anything that's not phone numbers, birthdays, song lyrics, or other things of that nature that people typically commit to memory.

I recently memorized Hotspur's part in Henry IV Pt. 1, can rattle off a few poems, and can recite the general prologue of the Canterbury Tales in Middle English. I also still remember various lists of words I had to memorize in the 6th grade, like prepositions and "linking" and "being" verbs. Useful stuff, am I right?

What is your favorite film adaptation of one of Shakespeare's plays?

I'm going to a concert at Madison Square Garden this weekend. It starts at 8pm, and I've never been to a concert of this size before. I bought a ticket and everything, but I don't want to stand in line for 2 hours if I don't have to. Also, I'll be going alone.

What time do you think I should get there?

Is going alone a bad thing? I couldn't find anyone to go with, and I'm a little worried about the ride home - anything I should keep in mind? I'll be taking public transportation home.

Anyone know anything about PHP creating interactive forms?

Specifically, how to create an e-mail form field that, when answered a certain way, causes additional fields to drop down/appear? For example, if someone answers "yes" to "are you employed," a new section drops down with questions about employment history? Cascading may be the appropriate term.


why the fuck does my ear hurt so bad omg how do I stop this? I used those Simisolan drops and the pain is now 100x more intensified.

Favorite treatments for acne/pimples?

I'm especially looking for at-home spot treatments but it's always good to hear other suggestions too.

I've been using Apple Cider Vinegar as a toner daily for prevention and it has worked really well, but I'm currently in need of a spot treatment for minor flare ups, I got four new pimples today after going a couple weeks without any.

Have you ever posted up pictures of yourself that you knew didn't look anything like you?

How did that make you feel?

When I was younger, I'd wear fake eyelashes and take a bunch of photos where only 1-2 pictures came out to my liking. People complimented me but I knew it wasn't genuine and felt even more like crap. I stopped doing so and feel better now showing who I really am.

If you're in the US, this is inspired by the Nightline segment that's going to be playing for the next half hour that the fat community in NYC is featured on right now:

Is being fat okay?

(big text for big question)
Do you believe that someone can be fat AND healthy?
Why/why not?
Why do you think other people get so offended over someone being fat?

Oh lord, people - I'm talking about fat. Fat - not by BMI standards, by the way society sees people as fat.
