What's the last sound you heard?
Should I change my last name too?
No, I don't actually expect you to make an informed decision without knowing the two names. Humor me.
Some details: I think I like her maiden name better than my current one. I have very few things in my own name aside from like...a bank account and school. Without changing my name, her maiden name is going to die out with her generation. The last name I have now is one syllable and kind of harsh, hers is three syllables. My first name is two syllables. I'm still in touch with my dad and his family, and they might be insulted.
Do you like your name?
Were there any major problems? How long did it last you?
Today when I was almost at work my oil light came on in my car. 91 corolla. It only comes on while idling or decelerating, and even then it's not constant. I got to work and checked my oil, and I have plenty, though I do admit I am due for an oil change like 2 weeks ago.
Anyway, I know nothing about cars. Can I chance it and try to drive 40 miles home? Yeah, I have a long commute. Or do I take it to an auto place by my work and bus it home? This results in me getting home an hour and a half late, probably, but I don't want to kill my car.
Can anyone car smart offer advice? Thaaanks.
Are you going to see The A-Team? I just saw it and it was AWESOME.
What was the last thing you splurged on for yourself? I bought new sheets and a comforter because my bed needs to be more *adult*... and less sandpapery.

This was in my in-box this morning: As thousands of American troops pour into southern Afghanistan, insurgents have launched a vicious offensive against the Afghans supporting the surge. Insurgents publicly hanged a 7-year-old boy who they labeled a spy for local troops. He was hanged from a tree in front of a crowd in Helmand's Sangin district. He was the son and grandson of prominent tribal leaders, one of whom had recently spoken out against the Taliban.P resident Hamid Karzai said: "A 7-year-old boy cannot be anything but a 7-year-old boy,hanging or shooting to kill a 7-year-old boy ... is a crime against humanity.

It seems like I either use the wrong proportion of tea or steep it for the wrong amount of time every single time I try making loose-leaf tea, even though I follow the instructions included with the tea.
Like I tried making black tea with two teaspoons of tea and steeping it for five minutes. It tasted too weak. So I tried making it with two and a half teaspoons and steeping for five minutes. It tasted too strong/tannic/over-steeped. So then I tried two heaping teaspoons but only steeping it for about 3 minutes and 45 seconds. It was still too weak.
What is the secret of perfectly steeping tea? It can't be that hard!
(I do usually use tea bags but sometimes you just have to drink whole leaf)

What something irrational that annoys you?
I hate when someone is pointing something out on a computer screen, telling me to click on something and they put their finger all the way up to the screen, blocking my vision from the very thing I should be clicking. Obviously, I can still click it well enough but I am irratioally annoyed and I always want to push their hand away.

It's got strange rules (they post 7 daily prizes, but only give away one prize weekly, but if you win you get to pick from the different prizes you entered for), but it resets every week and this month they've been doing electronic gadgets I'd love to have (some months it is things like garbage disposals or circular saws).
Pretending you're attracted to women, if your female partner (or potential partner) had chest hair, would it bother you? Why or why not?
I ask this because a girl I know has pretty severe chest hair. Which it's fine, sure, I get it. Shaving and waxing can be a bitch. But I've never seen this girl in a swim suit or without a shirt; I know she has chest hair because she wears clothing that shows it off. She wears extremely low cut shirts almost every day, and I just don't understand how she doesn't notice it. I'm all for being confident and stuff, but idk. I think it's strange, especially because she's an appearance-conscious person. She wears make up, styles her hair, etc. WHY DOES SHE SHOW OFF HER CHEST TUFT?

Bonus points for recipes.
i bought The Bucolic Plague and Whip Smart which were great.
Is there any brand that you would suggest? The ones that just broke were Skull Candy and cost $20, and those were the most expensive I've owned. Price isn't really a concern for me anymore, since I'm just trying to find earbuds that will last more than seven months.
Bonus points if you know of any that come in pink.

How did you do it?
My resume touts mostly administrative assistant positions and non-profit work, but I'm currently looking to be a waitress because of the hours involved - I'm going to school in the fall, so I need to be able to have a flexible schedule. I'm also not looking for anything full time, I just want to work enough to pay my rent and possibly put food on the table. I just applied at Applebee's and the website only let you put your last three employers (all admin jobs), but nothing describing your work there, so I'm afraid they are going to dismiss it as me not having any experience with customers or anything. Blah.
DK/DC - Will you share a recipe for yummy party food?
why or why not?
I have sprained an intercostal muscle due to an annoying cough that's been plagueing me 2 weeks. Do you have any tips to cut down on pain (besides pain killers)? I'm still coughing and it HURTS. How long will it take to recover? I'm supposed to do a 116 mile charity bike ride next weekend. Should I still attempt it? (I'm reasonably tough and hate backing out)
What kind do you use? Is it your favorite?
What's one thing you always seem to buy even though you already have it?
I always buy day planners, sketchbooks and notebooks as well as pens, markers and pencil crayons. All the time.
I have 2 day planners for 2010 and I'm obviously hankering for another one.
Some people like purses and shoes, I like day planners.

But now my bloody iMac is rejecting my CD. It loves to pick & choose the music I listen too, I swear.
How do I get it to read my damn CD?? I just bought it and listened to it in the car ONCE.
It's reading other CDs, just not this one!!
Ambient/drone/trip-hop/shoegaze - just anything that won't be too distracting and is fairly awesome.
I go shopping. I don’t have to pee. I drive for a couple of hours. I don’t have to pee. I do anything. I don’t have to pee. I pull into my driveway. All of a sudden I have to pee like crazy and do a crab-walk while holding my crotch all the way to the bathroom, hoping I don’t pee my pants. WHY is my bladder trained to do this?? It’s like Bladder: “Oh, hey... she’s home! I think I’ll go nuts since I know the toilet is all the way down the hall! I’m gonna piss myself laughing if she leaks!”
Do you think I can train my bladder NOT to do this? There’s almost no other time this happens to me, so I don’t consider it “overactive bladder” or “urinary incontinence”. Driveway = Crazy Bladder. Fark.

ETA: I opened a bottle of wine (a red one - Malbec) probably about four or five days ago. I just went to have another glass and it tastes different - but wine doesn't go bad in five days, right? I mean, it wasn't an expensive bottle of wine, but I drink red wine much slower/less frequently than white so I'm not attuned to the changes.
Any other make-up brands you recommend?
