Have you ever played with the idea of simply packing a suitcase and just walking out, leaving your life behind?

I love the idea of packing up and getting a flight but I can worry and stress to the point of paranoia.

Can anyone find me the strip that this is from? Its a Calvin and Hobbes comic I know but I want the actual strip.

"The problem with people is that they don't look at the big picture. Eventually, we're each going to die, our species will go extinct, the sun will explode, and the universe will collapse. Existence isn't only temporary, it's pointless! We're all doomed, and worse, nothing matters!"

Now for an actual question and not a random request.

What's your favorite Calvin & Hobbes strip?
And if you don't read Calvin & Hobbes your favorite (non-webcomic) strip?

Does "heh" have a different meaning than "hehe" or is it just a typo meant to be "hehe"?
Same with "hah" and "haha".

For some reason, I think of "hah" as a laugh but "heh" as a :/ awkward confused face.

Does this make sense? Probably not.

1. How do you wake yourself up/get energized in the morning?

2. How much do you have to accomplish in a day to feel like you've been "productive"?


1. First of all, before I go to bed, I get coffee ready for the morning and set the delay to start 15 minutes before my alarm goes off.  When my alarm does go off, I immediately get up and go splash really cold water on my face, then I stumble to the kitchen, make coffee, and sit in my bed for five minutes to sip on it.  By the time the five minutes or so are up...I'm awake.

2. For me to feel decently  productive, I must attend all my classes, workout, and do all my reading.  However, I feel totally productive if I get my workout done before 7am (which I did today...and have all days this week).

Terrorism 101 [Feb. 25th, 2010|08:21 am]
The Question Club

[kelj99]
I heard a report on the radio about people that assist terrorists.  Obviously, it is a crime in the United States & most other countries to provide them with financial backing, training, or supplies.

Apparantly, in the US, this extends to organizations that provide training for groups to learn how to use legitimate means to lobby for change in their governments (how to write bills, how to pursue litigation, education on political groups, etc...).

Do you agree with this policy? (ie Do you think that groups classified as terrorist organizations by the government should be denied access to training on how to achieve their goals without violence?)

EDIT:  Why or why not?

Classes are canceled before 12:30 yet I still wanted to go to work at 9...but buses are cancelled until 11:30...sigh... all the sleep I am missing.

So I am up indulging in some morning internet: lj, facebook, tastespotting(food blog) and now I cannot wait to make dinner tonight. I am not much of a breakfast person so I drool for lunch/dinner  food around this time. I have decided to make turkey burgers topped with thick slices of bacon, roasted or grilled fennel, and arugula with a lemon dijon aioli--and a side of baked sweet potato fries and mac & cheese. yum yum yum.

What is your big homemade meal of today and are any of you food blog junkies as I am somewhat embarrassingly admitting?

baby things [Feb. 25th, 2010|10:06 am]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[anaphylexis]
MY husband and I have known that we want to have children. About 4 years ago we starting slowly buying things in advance for the day we had children. *It hasn't happened yet, we've been trying for some time with no luck* I'd guess we've spent somewhere between $1,000 to $2,000 on baby items. My friend is pregnant *an accident, previously she had said she didn't really want any* We've joked about her just using my baby clothes and giving them back, but we haven't seriously mentioned anything. I've spent a lot of time and money on things for a child that I hope and pray to have, and the thought of giving that stuff away (even as a loan) doesn't sit well. And as anyone with kids knows certain things would not be returned because, well babies are messy. I would not get the clothes back in the like new condition I bought them in.

Is it wrong to not loan or give away the things I've spent the last 4 years collecting to my friend?

Edit: I'm not entirely sure of the amount of money spent. My husband thinks it might up the 1000 +, I lean more toward it being up to 1000. I check recalls, and almost everything is thrifted. And it's not all clothes.

Can you help me decide what to do on Saturday?
I had semi-planned (as far as asking people to come with only a couple of solid answers) to go to a sea shanty (traditional sailors songs) gig at our local cafe/bar. I was really excited about it.
BUT I had also said I was hoping the people I babysit for would ask me to babysit soon as a chance to see the family. They've asked me to on Saturday. They have another babysitter and I don't want to let them down. They pay me very little (£10) as I park my car with them.

So, do I go to sea shanties, which won't happen again till the summer, and spend £10, or babysit which will be a little quiet and potentially boring and earn £10.

Dear TQC,

I'm sick and congested and all around miserable. Only thing thats helped so far is curling up on the bathroom floor with a blanket and letting the room fog up from running hot water (suck it mother earth). Alas, my hot water heater has run out, and Im miserable again.

Do humidifiers make you feel better? Or more importantly, do they work like hot shower steam? Im getting gross again, and need halp. I've never had to use a humidifier before.

Do you hold doors/elevators for people?

How about when it's a little bit out of your way (i.e. delaying moving on wherever you're going for a few seconds to hang on the door for someone you see approaching)?

What kinds of things do you do along those lines of public courtesy?

If you've got a parking pass with a good chunk of time left on it, would you put it back where the ticket-dispenser-machine is for someone who might just need those fifteen minutes and otherwise would have to pay for a full hour?

The other day I held my best friend's coat for her to help her on with it, and she seemed really surprised--I know it's a thing that guys do, traditionally, but I know I always appreciate help with my coat if someone offers, so if I'm already holding someone's coat, why not?

My mom called me at work last night to tell me I was "in trouble" and someone wants to sue me because I allegedly took indecent pictures of their daughter "Melanie" and posted them on the internet.
A woman came into my stepdad's work and asked for (my name)'s father and continued to rant and rave to the poor girl at the register about my photos.

Here's the thing... I don't know anyone named Melanie let alone have I taken any pictures of someone named Melanie. I have a small portfolio of my photographs online (on flickr) which can not even be accessed by the general public, you need to have an account. However, all of the people I've taken pictures of know for a fact that the pictures are on my Flickr account.
There are four girls who I have taken pictures of nude for a small series and I have model release forms for all of those girls. They are all 18+.

Not to mention, why would this person go to my stepdad's place of business and verbally harass a lady who works there, but not come to me first?

Technically, I can't think of anything I have done wrong considering the only "indecent" photographs I've ever taken are backed by a legal contract that says I can sell, publish, whatever the fuck I want to them.

Is this some big joke?
Do you think my mom and stepdad are making this up?
Is there an incredibly EPIC troll out there who is doing this?
Am I in trouble?!


I'm pretty sure this woman doesn't have a case... but if someone tells me I'm in trouble I tend to get worried whether or not that's true ha

Do you have different ringtones for different people?

My ringtone is the Pittsburgh Penguins entrance music, just because it sounds sweet and I love the Pens.
I wish I could customize my text message/voicemail alert, because my roommate and I have the same phone and there's only one tone on there that isnt completely irritating.
And I used to have different ringtones for people but they took up way too much memory so I scrapped them.

Those of you with children will not find this hard to do, but for those who don't imagine you have a child, one who is fairly responsible in most aspects, but in one aspect is not. For instance, they seem to have friends that aren't too shady, they pitch in on chores, they do well in school, but they constantly go off and do things without informing you. (This is just an example really, it could be anything that's potentially problematic/risky behavior). You are very upset when one time your kid goes somewhere after school and ends up in a situation that could have been VERY dangerous, so you ground them. The grounding is indefinite until you are sufficiently satisfied that your child has improved. While grounded, your child violates your trust again and goes off somewhere after school without telling you. Nothing dangerous happens but it is still a repeat offense and grounding is apparently not working. What course of action do you take?

In fact, the more I read on the topic, the more inclined I am to say that Georgia should give up on NATO membership, but since I'm on the Georgia delegation and specializing in Georgian/Russian relations, I think that wouldn't go over well.

Using Google, I have successfully learned how to pronounce "Tbilisi." Do you Google pronunciations so you don't look dumb (which is my primary concern)? How would you pronounce Saakashvili?

My T-mobile Nokia (the back says type RM-490) cracked out of the blue.

First, why on earth did it crack? It was nestled safely inside my jacket. I had not dropped it. Now I can't see anything on the screen.

Second, I have pictures of my beloved rats in my "Images" file. When the camera takes a picture, does it by any chance save the pictures into the memory card? I would like to know if I can get a phone similar to mine, and then just put the memory card back in and have all my rat pictures intact.

Thank you :)

*I've been making it a point to make a note every morning as to whether I've had any dreams and if so, what they were about... and the last time I remember a dream at all was November 28, 2009.

I'm wondering if I'm still having dreams and just not remembering them... or if the loss of dreams somehow indicates a problem with my sleeping. :\

I bought a phone (LG Voyager) off eBay. The phone was listed in excellent, gently used condition. It was supposed to come with an extra battery.

Well, the extra battery wasn't in the package. The phone is scuffed up, screen is scratched. When I open the phone, it looks like either grease or soda was splattered on the inside screen. The cover for the charging port is broken off as well.

I e-mailed the seller through eBay as well as a secondary address I have from when they responded to a postage inquiry. She has access to mobile e-mail (as evidenced by the e-mail she sent me).

How long do I wait before contact her again? Her policy is no refunds, but the phone is obviously not as listed. If she refuses my refund, I'm going to do the whole eBay buyer protection thing. Has anyone else filed a claim through that before?

so, tomorrow we are switching internet & phone from Company A to Company B.
No new lines need to be installed, all the jacks (is this the right word? I don't know) and such are in already...

Will they have to come into the house? Will they have to go to every phone jack?

Reason: I am dog sitting my cousins dog and it doesn't really do well with people.. It's just REALLY friendly, and I dunno, some people fear dogs & it's a big dog and we have had some bad experiences with people being terrified, which is understandable.. and I always hate people who are like "NO ITS FRIENDLY" because when you're scared... you're SCARED y'know?

So when they are here I will keep it in my room (he just sleeps all day anyway)... (with me in there as well, dont worry.. I'm not going to lock him up alone all day.. he will just be in there while the phone workers are here.. as that's where he usually is anyway haha),

but there is a phone in there.. will they need to get to it?

& reason B, the guest room is used for storage right now, so if they need to get to all the phone jacks I will have to clear a PATH!
