What movie(s) have you recently seen that have been out for decades that you fell in love with?

Psycho. I just finished watching it for the first time. Easily one of my favorite movies. It's a shame that I'm half a century late.

New Homes

Anyone own, or did own, an Arbor Home?

If so, comments? Would or would not recommend an Arbor Home to someone? Anything to watch out for while the home is being built?

Also, if you do or did own an Arbor home, where was it built? (I'm thinking of having one built were I currently live -- Greenwood, IN.) Not sure if problematic or merited homes are concentrated in certain areas, so it'd be interesting to see if they are.

Thanks for any info!

have you ever surprised ordered something online?


i just put Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge into my cart on amazon and went to checkout or something, idk, but i thought i was just looking at my cart and i wasn't reaedy to buy it. i wanted to see if anyone had Om Shanti Om in stores around here and if they didn't, i was going to do the free shipping thing. but i just checked my e-mail and it was like, "THX 4 YER PURCHASE" and i was all, "FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF".


i guess i just wanted to share my dumbassery with you all. i guess the moral is, don't fuckin' shop online drunk, especially after seeing awesome Bollywood movies staring Shahrukh Khan and making you feel like you need more SRK movies than you have.

Have you ever hallucinated from sleep deprivation before?

What's the longest you've ever gone without sleeping?

(Yes; about sixty hours, but within that past 120 hours I'd only gotten about 15 hours of sleep. I knew I was hallucinating, but it was still really weird to feel like I was floating, or that the carpet was melting beneath my feet.)

(no subject)

 Q: Have you ever had  a premonition dream? Good or bad?

I've never had sleep paralysis before or after...
But I had an episode a couple years back, and during this episode I dreamed that a shadow in the shape of a boy (no features, just darker than the room) sat on my legs, dangled his feet over the edge of my bed, put his hands on his face and began crying.
Since it was small, I thought it was my nephew & I tried to say "It's ok, buddy..." But I couldn't. He then just faded into the darkness.
I fell back asleep & had normal dreams the rest of the night.

I woke to the news that the son of a family friend (10 yrs old, same as my nephew) had hung himself.

The original radio finally died this morning and I think it's time to bring it into the 21st century.

the only reason i can think of is that she's upset or unsettled, but i can't think of why.

What sort of mistake(s) have you been susceptible to repeating? What is it about you and/or the mistake that makes you inseparable?

Snatched from the entry I'm making right now:
For me, mistakes involving human interaction are common. Not because I haven't learned from the ones I've made in the past, but as long as you don't have the same SSN as the last person I made this mistake with, I'm ever the optimist and believe in the possibility of a different outcome.

In short, I'm a sucker and I make the mistake of being a sucker even though I can see b/s coming a mile away.

Retail


Working in retail, the customer is always right, correct?  And should you EVER argue with the customer if you know they are not correct?  I got in trouble for standing up for the customer rather than sticking up for "my team" aka co-workers.  I knew that my side of the story was true and what the other co-workers did were wrong.  The customer knew they were wrong.  Therefore I stood up for the customer yet I got in trouble because I should have technically "lied" to the customer... sorry if this doesn't make any sense at all.

I'm working on writing a comic that takes place at a high school. It'll be... well, not sex comedy, but not romantic comedy either. Somewhere in between, probably erring towards romantic, but with a healthy touch of cynicsim.

I've got major plot points all set up, but I need stuff to happen in between. So I ask this: what are some hilariously awkward things that have happened to all of you in high school?

Can be dating-related, can be anything, really. For example, my first silly thing to happen is an awkward game of "The Human Knot" that the teachers make the students participate for some "bonding experience" bullshit. Because we've all been there, I think.

So my boyfriend of about 3.5 months just broke up with me on Thursday because he realized after a somewhat minor fight that we have personality differences he perceives to be irreconcilable. Basically, he thought we were headed for an out-of-control screaming match, and he'd rather break it off before that happens, rather than after. I disagreed with him but I understood and kind-of respected his position. Just trust me that he wasn't making it up or whatever.

We're part of the same bike group, and today there was a big race in the huge rain/wind storm we got up in Boston. I kinda crashed my bike on a wet grate and came to the finish line late and started crying cause I was cold and had hurt my arm and was just miserable, whatever. A bunch of people asked me if I was okay and were really nice, but said ex wouldn't make eye contact and didn't say anything to me.

I know that I deserve better than that from a recent ex who I had a peaceful, stay-friends breakup with. But now I really want to call him and be like "You are a shitbag. Just cause we broke up, doesn't mean you get to stop caring about my fucking well-being". I know I shouldn't. TQC, will you please convince me not to call him?

1. Have you ever cried in a public place? Where/why? Did anyone notice/confront you?
2. Worst day of your life, do you remember it well? Or have you even consciously leveled out a "worst day"? Does remembering it ever make you cry? And to those open enough to, will you share what made your worst day your worst day?


1. Yes. I'm really bad at bottling emotions, I've cried in public a few times. The only time I know I was noticed was when I was at dinner with family, it was shortly after a loss in the family, so why I was crying was no mystery. Other times, I usually hide in the nearest bathroom.
2. Yep. It was almost 2 years ago, losing family member mentioned in #1. I've experienced other losses but none so bad. Made me cry today, which is what brought me to ask here. I was just wondering if anyone else deals with such emotions spontaneously grasping them at somewhat inappropriate times/locations.

So there's this tutoring job that I applied to a while ago that I would really like to have. They called me a few weeks ago to set up an interview, and ever since then, it's been a mess of e-mail and phone tag between me and the tutoring club. We still have not set up an interview.

The tutoring center is near my volunteer job, so I was thinking of just stopping by there in person after work and being like, "HEY! Let's set up an interview in person!"

So how should I dress? I was thinking of a green cotton top, a brown blazer, and nice jeans. Since I'm going to work tomorrow, I HAVE to wear my hiking shoes, but I can bring a nice pair with me in my purse, like my brown boots or my black high heels. So...does this sound OK? I mean, I'm not really going in for an interview, I'm going in to try to set UP an interview.

You have a friend who has become physically disabled and is incapable of normal "relations."

That friend relies on their spouse financially and emotionally to survive.

Said friends spouse takes you aside and makes sexual advances toward you.

When you refuse, she makes it plain that the only way she'll continue her marriage with, and support of your friend is if you consent to sex occasionally. Otherwise it's "Just too much."

What do you do?

Asperger's

I have read some stuff about Asperger Syndrome, not all of it academic but my bf's brother was diagnosed with it recently. He is going to turn 20 in June. Of course he has a personality like any other individual, but I was wondering if anyone here has Asperger's and would have any recommendations for me? As in, how to make it easier for him? Without medication. He's already going to therapy, he was diagnosed by a specialist afaik.

How do I convince him to help us out around the house? It wouldn't be much, but it really makes a difference when other people chip in as opposed to just one or two.

How do I make things more interesting to him? I understand his brain is wired differently, and he gets interested in very specific stuff.

How do I find out what he likes? As in how should I ask questions? He doesn't seem intent on answering me, or he grunts...

Thank you in advance.

Hypothetical situation:

You know that your teacher is very strict about cheating. If you found out after a test that someone had cheated off of you without you knowing would you tell the teacher or would you wait and see if the other person got caught?

If you wait, and the teacher catches the other person, they could say you knew about it and were letting them cheat which could get you in trouble too.

Zombies and Dinosaurs.  It's all very irrational I know, but these thing pop in there and back out again just as easy.

Call me crazy/stupid or just plain troll but as Rachel teased Ross "Jurassic Park could happen!"

1.Would you ever send a gift to someone you didn't know in person? (IE: someone you met online or a celebrity, etc..)

2. Have you ever donated to a website?

3. How do you feel about Lady Gaga's new nine and a half minute video?

Don't you love it when you're out at a bar/club, and they play a relatively obscure song that you love but no one else does?

Do you ever insist on singing all the words to said song just to confuse others?

DK/DC (but would maybe want to answer a slightly related question) - Can you post an uncommon song you know all the words to?

Does anyone have a Nintendo DS with a TTDS card and know how to update the firmware? I downloaded the new Pokemon games and they won't work for longer than 10 minutes because my version is too old :(

because I can't make my own life decisions

Ok, I want opinions on this.

I am moving come end of june for grad school at wayne state (downtown detroit)

I have 3 living options I am currently considering. (note that + denotes a positive aspect of living situation and - means a negative aspect of living situation).

1) Living at my mom's house
+ Save money!
- Tiny space
- Other people's clutter
- I will be more stressed out at all times probably
- longer commute to class and internship

2) Live in an on campus apartment
- over $650 a month in rent PLUS paying for parking
- No parking at apartment, would have to park a block ish away
+ Place to myself
+ The apartment I want is 529 square feet, it's a studio but has a separate kitchen, separate dining room the size of my bedroom at my mom's house and a living area/bedroom.
+ On campus, will have internet.

3) Live in an off campus apartment
- rent. Most places I have seen so far will probably end up with higher cost than on campus once all utilities, internet et cetera that are not included in rent are added in. But I may be able to find a place cheaper if i look further from campus.
- Higher risk of a really bad landlord.
? Parking is an unkown, depending on how far from campus, I may need to purchase parking on campus anyways.
+Place to myself
+/- More space than home, likely less than the place I like on campus.
+ no rush to move out right when I graduate (which will be after only 1 year)

Some other things to know, I don't know my financial situation next year. Still waiting to hear about financial aid, loans, and scholarships.
I will be able to work only part time and don't have a job in the area yet. I hope to get one, but have no guarantee of paid employment.
Oh, and my internship may require a lot of working from home, which is why having space is a big factor for me right now.

So, where should I live next year and why?
