I know many may not care, but I'm posting because I care and I'm sure some others do too.

Dennis Hopper has died. :(((

What's your favorite of his film roles?

if you don't know any, then feel free to check out his imdb page or you can list another of movies' psychotic bad guys and we can tell you how much they (probably) don't match up. ;p

seriously though, if you're not familiar with his work, will you list your favorite movie with an iconic villain? (and if it's "The Dark Knight" and it's already been listed, then give us your second favorite.)

Fiance and I are going to Chicago for a weekend in June and since we'll only be there for two days, I want recommendations. Do you have any recommendations for amazing restaurants or stores that are absolutely must go to while there?

Thanks!

Do any of you wear earplugs when you sleep at night?
If so, are you able to wake up to your alarm?
I'm having a hard time adjusting to my new apartment, since my bedroom has windows, whereas I have been living in windowless bedrooms for the past year - now I'm very sensitive to light and sound, where I used to be a heavy sleeper before. The problem is that I can now hear every little noise that goes on outside, including the blare from what I can only assume to be a train that blows every hour or so. I have to wake up with an alarm tomorrow, and I already bought earplugs - would I be able to wake up to my alarm with the earplugs in? They're just cheap earplugs from Rite Aid, nothing fancy or high-tech.

Or, phrased a different way:

What's your stupid, irrational fear?

(I am terrified of surgery and scared of hospitals. It doesn't really make much sense - I have had surgery twice, but they were minor and had no complications. But thinking about them or about hospitals in general can send me into a hysterical crying fit.)

Online Notebooks

Do you use any form of an online notebook? I use Google Documents for my grad class because I know that I can access it from any computer that has internet access. I was looking at Microsoft Office products and it mentioned OneNote. Have you ever used that? Is it worth it to purchase?

What about EverNote? It's free to register, but I don't really see its appeal.

I also noticed Google Notebook, but it's blocked as a social networking site, which to me means that it's not accessible from any computer. Do you use Google Notebook?

What is your favorite computer notebook application?

Ironing

I need help figuring out what iron setting to use for a Japanese blouse.

Collapse )

OR is there any setting on an iron that can be used if you're unsure of the fabric? I think it's 100% cotton but I'm not completely sure. Should I just use the cotton setting?

[Edit: I ironed it on a low setting and it's good!]

there's only two comic book stores in town and in one of them i accidentally broke an $80 replica of The Green Lantern. i was in no financial position to pay for it, even if i were a saint, so i bolted. now The Green Lantern haunts me every time i look for Gambit comics at the used book stores.

but now i'm in a jam. i'm well on my way to exhausting my resources and i need to check out this other store, and this whole Green Lantern debacle happened well over a year and a half ago.

do you think it's safe to go into the comic book store yet?

how do I dress nice bluhhhh

I am going to a friends' wedding next weekend and I'm trying to get some clothes together. I usually don't dress up, or go to weddings, so I am confused.

I emailed the bride and asked her what I should wear, like how fancy/not fancy. She said: "Not formal, but not casual either. In between nice-ish wedding clothes. Not sure what to say except a dress or pretty skirt and shirt would be fine."

I went out and bought these two skirts on the sale rack yesterday. My boyfriend likes the black one more, but I thought wearing black to a wedding was bad? I don't know.

skirt A
skirt B

I have some black fabric flats that could work with A, but I'd have to buy shoes for B. I might buy shoes anyway. I don't know!

MY QUESTION: What kind of shirt should I look for, for either? A blouse? A nice embroidered tanktop? What's too casual? Why is this hard?

soooo, since your advice to me last week re: pizza and ice cream worked out so well, i've decided to put more life decisions in your hands! my question today is SHOULD I CUT MY HAIR???

i have very VERY curly hair and lots of it and it is really pissing me off. also, i have not cut my hair in about seven years because it grows so damn slowly, and once it's long i always feel like it's such a shame to get rid of it :( i want to cut it really short, like short enough that most of the curl will disappear (i shaved my head in like...'02 or something, and it was kind of straight for a while until it grew back past a certain length, so i know this is possible), but still girly, and long enough to put it in a faux hawk if i want because i'm the kind of jerk who thinks that looks good on anyone ever. since i shaved my head before, i know i don't have a weird-shaped skull or anything, so that's okay. usually, i just plait my hair so i don't have to bother with a ~*style*~, and my friend says this is adorable and if i cut my hair, i won't be as cute. i am inclined to believe him, but idk, maybe i could pull it off. what do you think?

preserving playdo creations?

In a moment of boredom, I created something kinda neat. Using this page as a guide, I rolled some dollar-store playdo into thin lines and "drew" that flower with it. It turned out way better than I expected, so much so that I want to give it to my BFF, but I can't figure out a way to preserve it or safely travel with it. Any suggestions?

TQC! I have a dilemma.

Yesterday evening I rear ended the van in front of me. We were stuck in traffic and I'm not sure what happened but I ended up bumping into the guy in front of me. We got out & looked at the damage and there was none.. not even a smudge on either car. The guy was laughing and just said "honestly, this van is so old I'm not even going to bother. I'll rinse it off and see if there is any damage but I think it's fine. Shit happens". I gave him my insurance numbers and everything just in case.
Should I do anything about it? I don't really want to make an insurance claim because if there is damage it's MINIMAL so I want to just pay for it. I was going less that 2km/h so there's no way it's serious, I basically rolled into him. He gave me his number, should I call him and see what's going on? I wrote down all the details, like time and his van and blah blah. Will this incident haunt me in the future?
I've been freaking out all day =[

Have you ever read a novel where you got a vibe that the author was in love with one of his/her own fictional character and created them as some ideal man/woman? What book was it and what was the character like? Don't just give me the name of a book and don't describe it.

for me: Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, there were so many details about this one girl's perfect, large, perky breasts and slim waist and broad hips and beautiful dark hair and it even went on to describe how her pubic hair looked.

I found out today that I have been selected for jury duty. :-(

This is something I've never done before and I don't know anyone that has so I'm a little nervous.  Have you ever been called for jury duty?  What was it like?

Also, did they fix it so you'd have to be a juror on more than one trial (with possibly more to be added) during a specific three month block or was it just one trial and it was all over?

For those of you who've read Little Women:

Did Jo give off butch lesbian vibes to anyone else? My theory is that she was a lesbian (because let's face it she was butch as hell) so she wasn't into Laurie, but she was constricted by her society into marrying a man, so after Laurie got Amy she ended up settling for that old German guy who could barely speak English.

Also, she was based off the author and the author never married, and her explanation was "I love women more than men" or something.

So far about 10 times, I've bought conventional fruit from the grocery stores and eaten some or all without washing it.

An inquiry, inspired from listening to too much "Love Line":

What is the psychological reasoning for some kind of trauma eventually lending itself to becoming sexually pleasurable later on in someone's life?
On "Love Line" if a caller asks why they/their partner is turned on by something... violent (choking, cutting, ect), Dr. Drew immediately asks if there was trauma or abuse earlier in their life, and the caller almost always says yes. I know it's not the case for everyone...but anyways I think it's interesting, curious to your guys' thoughts.
