Does anyone know an easy way to sort addresses for entering them in as labels?

I have maybe a thousand addresses, both residential and business, that need to be sorted alphabetically in Word 2007. I know there's a sort option but doesn't seem like it would pick up the right words to alphabetize.

It takes 7 seconds for food to pass from mouth to stomach. A human hair can hold 3 kg. The length of the penis is three times the length of the thumb. The femur is as hard as concrete. A woman’s heart beats faster than a man’s. Women blink twice as much as men. We use 300 muscles just to keep our balance when we stand. The woman has read this entire text. The man is still looking at his thumb.

Was this true for you?

A post from earlier tonight (about Prom) made me think of this question:

Right around the time I entered High School, I had a bunch of adults (and even some just graduated high school students) telling me High School is the best time of your life ever. Even if you despise it while you're there, you'll wish you could go back after you graduate.

So, for everyone who has graduated high school, tell me... is this true in your case?

I've asked multiple people since graduating and I've always gotten one of two answers: "No, I hated it. It was the worst thing ever. I would never go back, even if you paid me to." OR, "I liked it, it was pretty good. I wouldn't want to go back, though."

So, in every case I've found, no one has wanted to go back regardless of their experience. How do you feel about this, post-HS TQCers?

I've been looking at money-saving websites recently and the same few tips seem to be all that are circling around. Yes, I know I can use coupons, turn down the thermostat, and not eat out.

1. did you bring a lunch, buy a lunch, or skip lunch entirely when you were in elementary, middle and/or high school? what were the staples of your lunch diet?

I almost always brought my lunch because my mother spoiled me rotten in terms of food. I usually had carrot and pepper sticks, granola bars, juice boxes and either a peanut butter and nutella sandwich or a thermos with soup or pasta. Only now that I'm out of school and making my own food plans do I realize how great my mom was for doing all that for me.

2. do you tend to enjoy when the author of a book or story references other books, movies or music directly by name? For instance, would you rather read a sentence like "he went home and listened to an old jazz record as he fell asleep," or "he went home and put on some Miles Davis as he fell asleep"?

I tend to like specificity, but sometimes I think it doesn't work and comes off like the author is just name-dropping or trying to push their own tastes on the readers. Some authors pull off references better than others, imo.

I got a speeding ticket about 2 years ago for going 10 mph over the speed limit on the freeway. On my ticket it said I was going 10 mph over but I only just recently looked at the record of it from the court and it says I was going 30 mph over the speed limit (so that I was seemingly going 90 mph on the freeway instead of 70 mph.) I'm annoyed that this kind of drastic mistake would happen, but all said and done, is there any way of seeing that this is fixed or is it just official now?

Do you ever get randomly dizzy? How often does it happen to you?

I can't seem to get myself hydrated no matter how much water/gatorade I drink. This happens to me every year around this time. 
Can you suggest other things that I can drink/do to help keep myself hydrated? 
Water and gatorade is getting old, and I feel like all it does is make me pee too much.

Nipple Piercings!

Question the first: I am in need of some angry, ragey icons. Does anybody have any I can steal? I'll credit, of course.

Question the second: I'm going on a family vacation to Georgia (the state, not the country) this summer to visit some very old family friends. They're frighteningly conservative and will more often than not say things that will make me want to kill them. What can I do to prevent myself from committing murder?

e-mail mystery

It seems that at some point in recent time, my Yahoo! e-mail account got hijacked and a bunch of people on my contacts list got spam e-mails from "me" with a malicious link in it.    I don't know how this happened, but I just changed my password and sent a message to Yahoo! about it too.

Has this ever happened to any of you TQC fans?   How did you get it resolved?  
If not, what do you think I should do anyway?

What's the protocol here?

I just got an email from a company I really want to work for offering me an interview. It was sent to my email address which is just myname@blahblah.com however it's addressed to 'David'. I'm not David - I am a girl.

I very recently did a lot of work for the company, so it wouldn't be totally out of place if they did want me to go for an interview. However, my name is not David...

How should I approach this? It's going to be awkward either way when I email them back as either they've accidentally emailed me and they don't want me at all, or it's a copy/pasta mistake and they just forgot to switch David's name for mine.

What would you do here? (ps. I reeeeeaaaally want the job)

I need to go to the post office, TQC. I have class at 3:30 so I need to go by 3. It's 12:40 now, however, and I am afraid of the crazy "lunch break going to the post office!" crowds that create out-the-door lines. 

What time does it become safe to go to the post office minus the "lunch bunch" lines?

When is the last time you went to the post office? What were you mailing?

I haven't really talked to him in about 6 months but he's called my house, for either me or my fiance (they were very close friends growing up. I met my ex through my fiance and dated both of them in a half open relationship for 2 years).
Who do you think he called for?

'Gay dog' refused entrance at Australian restaurant. What do you think the waiters were afraid might happen?

If you let in the gay dog, you'll then have to let in the dogs that are into bestiality and necrophilia
He'll sniff the asses of all the male patrons
It'll set a bad example for the kids when the dog's sitting there, licking his own genitals, making kids ask awkward questions about genital licking
That the dog will convert several people into the gay lifestyle just by being in proximity to his gay genes. Happy family men enter the restaurant, but after dinner they're all in the alley blowing each other
Once you let one gay dog in, he'll tell all his friends and next thing you know, all these sassy pink poodles are lined up in front of the restaurant tomorrow
The waiters were afraid that they themselves couldn't resist the urge to commit sodomy in the kitchen with each other. They don't need some dog encouraging them
The waiters were afraid that Jesus would be really ticked off if he found out that they had willingly fed queer mongrels rather than stone them to death

Do you vote? I don't care who for, I just want to know if you do. Do you vote in every election or just the "big ones" (if those are separate in your country)? Does your polling place have those awesome booths from the sixties with the curtain that makes all sorts of terrying noises when you open and close it? I love those things. When you yank on the lever, it's like you're punching the candidates you didn't vote for right in the face. DEMOCRACY FUCK YEAH.

Also, are polling places around the world uniformly staffed by terrifying old people or is that just an American phenomenon? I always lie about my political party because they scare me. Why do they need to know that shit anyway?

Obviously, I should've done it at my old job with my pierced boss.

You can get your lip pierced with a stud and switch it out to a ring later, right?
When you get a lip piercing, how long must you absolutely not touch it and not even think of switching it for a different one?
(on the side of my lower lip)

I've seen 6-10 weeks, 2 months and even 10 days listed on the internets as "healing time" for a lip piercing. I heal pretty quickly and I know I'd be good-bordering-on-paranoid about keeping the site clean/free of food/not otherwise touching it. But having 10 days or 10 weeks to leave a stud in without removing it at all ever isn't going to happen. Face piercings are generally frowned on at work. I might be able to get by with a little stud, but odds are I'd have to take it out (and fill in with a clear retainer/spacer) within 4-5 days of piercing.
Am I out of luck for getting holes put in my face?

Anyone have any advice/words of wisdom/funny/awkward/bad experiences while being there?

So, to avoid being chosen, I have been told to be as ignorant as possible. Except I think I would be way to embarrassed to come off that way...

My garden is just overlooked by a road (it's higher than the house, we're on a hill), you would have to make a conscious effort to look in, but it is easily done. People very often make a conscious effort to stare in, often popping their heads over several times along the 20 foot of road.
So far I have waved sarcastically, shouted and given people the "v's".

Q: 'Should your husband be your best friend?'

1. Who's your favorite family member?

2. What's your favorite possession?

3. What's your favorite thing about your life?

What should I buy my brother for his 17th birthday? I want to spend around $20-$40. He's into cars, but doesn't have one(and I sure as hell can't get him one). He also likes video games, but he already has all the accessories he needs and there aren't any games out that he wants.
