If you're actually doing something, is it something you had previously put off and can no longer avoid?

I'm wanting to watch a movie on my laptop before/as I go to sleep and I'm too lazy to get the power chord for it. Is there someway I can set my computer to go to sleep after 30 minutes or so despite the computer being in use with the movie? I know how to set the general sleep timer, but watching a movie keeps it on until the computer battery dies.

When U.S. (or any abbreviation, really) falls at the end of a sentence, you skip the period at the end, right?

So it would be:

I'm googling like a fool, TQC, and I can't seem to find an answer.

I need one of these for my camera charger, because apparently I misplaced it. Ideally, I'd like to have one today so I can take some photos. However, I can't seem to find any other listings for this, or the same cord on Best Buy's website...is this something Radio Shack might have? Or that, if I walked into Best Buy with my camera charger and said "I need just a cord" they'd be able to help me? I really don't want to pay $40 for an entire charger because I have the little box for the battery...just not the cord. I don't even know what you'd call this cord really; do you? I've just been googling AC power cords and then looking at all the ends to see if any have that little two circle thing going on.

tl;dr: Why am I up before 6 am on my day off googling for power cords? How sad is my life? I should nap today, y/y?

How long would/could you stay in a committed, monogamous relationship without sex -- for the sake of the argument, let us say you and your SO have sex, on average, once every 2 or 3 months -- if:

you were only a few months into your relationship?

you'd been together a year?

you'd be together 5 years?

you were married?

you initially had a really good sex life, but it's dwindled down to nothing after that first year?

your SO gets of by him/herself all the time despite of (or possibly causing) the problems you guys have?

your SO spent all of his/her private time looking at porn instead?

We're assuming there is absolutely no cheating on either person's part.

So I like this guy. We've been chatting online for 5 years (no joke), but we only recently started hanging out in person as I only recently moved to his city. We've been going on dates throughout the month of May. We have amazing chemistry.He confessed his feelings for me 2 weeks ago. We haven't been physical because I told him I wanted to move slower.

I'm apprehensive to take things to the next level as he's moving literally to the other side of the world in mid September. Part of me is a firm believer in the whole "don't be sad it's over, be glad it happened" philosophy but the other half of me KNOWS that I'll get attached, thus making it hard for me when he leaves.

What would you do in my shoes? Would you go for it and have a whirlwind summer romance, or would you force yourself to just stay friends due to the in-the-near-future move?

When was the last time you were in an awkward situation that YOU caused? Care to tell me about it?

I was eating breakfast with my parents today, and somehow, the topic of open relationships came up. My parents immediately started talking about how they never work, they're a load of crock, people who are in them are secretly miserable, etc., etc. And I had to go open my big mouth and say, "That's not true!" The next few minutes of conversation were rather...strained.

interview follow up

I had an interview 2 Fridays ago that went rather well. They contacted me the same day and scheduled a 2nd interview of sorts- a writing and design sample. I went to that on Thursday of last week. After we met for my samples, I emailed the them to her with a "if you need anything else, don't hesitate to contact me, blah blah I look forward to hearing from you about the position blah blah". Since it was a long holiday weekend, I expect to hear back from them by today or tomorrow about whether or not I got the job.

I am so anxious! Should I email her to follow up now, or wait until tomorrow/this evening? What should I say in the email?

I really want this job, I even had a dream I got it! Positive thinking in action...

I don't know how to phrase this...

but I'm going to try my best. Asking if you think someone can be born geared toward a subculture sounds silly, but that was the original question. I think my mind is trying to ask this:

Do you think a person can be born with such a personality that they will eventually enter a certain subculture or is that a learned trait?

If you have any experiences with this please explain.

Do people still break into cars to steal cds? A while ago all three of my cd binders went missing from my car. My car was very very messy so I didn't notice they were gone for a while. I don't remember ever seeing signs of a break-in, but they seem to have completely disappeared. Stealing cds seems like such a 90s crime, but I don't know where else they could have gone. Could they have been stolen? If not, where could they be???

I chose Purdue because it stole my heart when I walked on campus. It just happened to be in state.

I can't seem to decide on an art school, though. There's only two in the area and the one that I think I might really, really like is expensive for a school without room & board (~$23,000 per year). If I'm going to pay that much I might as well go to Rice or University of Texas. =/ I'm nervous and I'm not sure why.

Window air conditioners

I want to get a window a/c in the bedroom, but our windows are weird. They're kind of like this. The frame is plastic and our walls are concrete/plaster, and there's no ledge or anything; it's just a straight drop down ten storeys. When I look up from the balcony, I can see that other people have them! How the eff did they do it?? Do I have to build a frame or something? How do I anchor that to the window? (It also has to be super sturdy because the windows are at floor level and I have a baby learning to crawl.) Should I attempt the a/c, or just get a of couple fans and keep the windows open and hope for the best? It's already been so hot in here that none of us could sleep.

tl;dr How can I get a window a/c in the type of frame linked above?

So on my massive list of things to do is to learn all the names of the people who live on my floor. I've never seen most of them so I thought of having a sort of block party, more of a floor party, and just putting invites on people's doors. I would lock up all my valuables and have no alcohol. What do you think? Bad idea/good idea? How to go about this? Scrap the party idea and just go door to door asking people's names? I don't want to be best friends with them...

A party would be a considerable amount of work because the people on my floor vary widely in age(there's a 50 year age gap between me and my next door neighbor), language barriers, and schedules, so I'm worried it would end up just being me and the weird cat lady down the hall.

So, today I royally fucked up on Priceline and accidentally booked a non-refundable flight out of Chicago instead of an airport near me (Chicago is 4 hours away). I fly out at 6:00am, and back in at 4:50pm. Basically this face -> D:

Should I take the bus to Chicago the day before (Megabus, should be under $15 each way) and just sleep at the airport until my flight? Then when I got back, I'd have to spend the night in a hotel ($70) or risk trying to get to a hostel from airport at midnight (does this sound sketchy)? I'd have to deal with public transit. With this plan I also get to spend a day in Chicago, and I've never been there. TOTAL = ~$130 (+ possible cab fare in case of emergency)

Or should I just drive (at night), park my car there ($117 total in the cheapest lot + $40 gas for both ways), and not worry about it? TOTAL = ~$160

With the first plan, I have to rely on somebody else to drive me to the bus stop, and also I'd have to crash at their place for a night. I'd prefer not to ask such a favor since the only people I can ask to do this are coworkers and idk awkward!


ETA: NM, I was able to cancel it for $40, unfortunately the new flight is like $200 more but whatever >:(

In a few months I'm applying to be a camp counselor and they ask for one reference who can vouch for your ability to work with children.

For the past two summers I have worked for short periods of time as a carer for a family who have a daughter with cerebal palsy. It's casual work, and the mother used to work with my mother, which is how I got the "job". They usually contact me in about April or May to arrange work for the next summer. I was going to ask her to be my reference, but they have not contacted me to work for them this summer, which means they have most likely asked someone else. As far as I know, we are still on good terms, she might possibly think I'm not available this summer, although I did tell her about 8 months ago that I would be.
I don't really have anyone else who would be as good a reference in relation to child experience, although I have other people I could ask for general references.

Should I contact her anyway and ask her to be my reference, or should I try to find someone else?

Three unrelated questions

1. Are there any phrases that just set you off? As in, someone says a certain phrase and you just become incensed? Why?

2. Is there a certain medium of animation (classic cel animation, CGI, clay-mation, stop-motion, flip books, etc) that you particularly enjoy or dislike?

3. Have you ever been hit on by a creeper? Will you tell me about it?

We have an issue. My SO's niece's 10th birthday is tomorrow. We are a terrible aunt and uncle and forgot. She lives 2 states away.

What should we do?
Are there any online gift certificates that we could buy and have her use?

I feel crappy about this.

English Muffins

Do you like English Muffins? What are you favorite non-meat/egg things to eat on them (cheesy ideas are fine, I have Daiya =D)? I've recently discovered that I love them, and so far I've tried Earth Balance, jam, Tofutti cream cheese, and have turned them into mini pizzas. Any other yummy suggestions for ways to eat them?

Have any of you guys worked at Wegmans? If so, could you tell me about it? What you did/didn't like about it, what the environment was like, etc. I just got a call from them about setting up an interview for an overnight stock position and I'm curious. I've been reading reviews on sites like Glassdoor, but I'd rather hear it directly.

I noticed a "Moonlight" stamp while browsing DeviantART. Does anyone remember that show (it's really not old... though)?

Did you like it?

When you look at this show and then the Twilight series, which emerges as the best?

Or...

What were you favorite 90's cartoons?

What are some extreme lies you told as a child?

I used to lie super hardcore as a child. I can't remember most of them but the biggest one I told was during a bomb threat at school I told my teacher I wasn't scared because I had been held at gunpoint before.

My aunt made up this crazy story about driving me to school every day of Kindergarten. Then gave me a key chain with what she says are real diamonds inside. (She said to take out the diamonds and put them into something)

Can I bring these to any jeweler to see if they're real? Should I bring them to more than one?
What would you do if someone was telling you a totally fake story about your childhood?

Your car is plummeting off of a bridge. The impact doesn't kill/hurt you. You are conscious as your car sinks into the water. The temperature of the water is moderate and there is no concern of hyperthermia.

Is it better to open your window as to have an immediate escape? (Can the vacuum/rush of water be fatal?)
Or keep them close in hope that once the car stops sinking, you can break then window and swim out and up?

Do you have a strong fear of driving over water?

Do you play out emergency escape scenarios in your head regularly?

cake

My birthday is soon and I will be making several cakes. I am making one this weekend, one next week to take to work, and possibly another if I can talk my friend into having a party. I have like 20 lbs of flour I need to use up, so I will not be buying cake mix. What kind of cakes should I make?

Should not have coconut, b/c I hate that in my cake.

I was thinking about naming him/her Shady Grove after the awesome folk song, but I think my boyfriend might laugh at me.

I'm hoping someone has seen this...a while back I watched a movie/documentary on one of those history/a&e type channels. I think it was about global warming type stuff, it had commentary and such by "expert" but the main focus was following the life of one girl/woman into the future. It was animated, beautifully.

 my boyfriend has played video games all day long today. we live an hour away from eachother during the summer so we normally call eachother every night before bed.

i call him and he doesn't stop playing his game, but he talks to me and genuially seems interested in what i have to say.

do i have a reason to be bothered by this? he doesn't understand why i'm annoyed he didnt stop the game to talk to me for a few minutes. (he says he can still play and talk at the same time. =/ ) how can i explain to him?

So, basically, me and my friend, lets call them Borris, fell out a few months ago and then became friends with the biggest bitch on the planet but its kinda blantes that Borris doesn't like her. Earlier today, Borris texted me asking if we can talk to each other again and be friends, I said yes because I am always forgiving and believe in second chances. But somehow it all seems to good to be true, i feel like this could be a trick and the bitch could be behind it all since or maybe Borris finds this amusing. I should also mention that I am a very Paranoid person.

What do you guys think? Is it for real?
