if you hit a deer with your car and it stumbled off and died a few minutes in a nearby yard, would you leave it there or would you try to figure out who to call to move it? you know that people live there because they came out and said they called 911 for you. if you owned the yard the deer died in, what would you want the driver of the car to do?

if you have a piggy bank, how often do you empty it out? what do you do with the contents?

Has your appearance changed a lot over the past year? Past few years? Do you see it as better or worse now?

I'm kind of horrified by how I looked 1-2 years ago, I had such a bad haircut... I think I look a lot better now that it's grown out.


Your first dating anniversary is coming up for you and your SO.

i have a large collection of pictures i've saved from the internet of outfits that i think are cute for whatever reason. what i need is a way to organize these with tags, so i can look up, for example, all the outfits that use tights, or maybe all the outfits that use a pencil skirt, or heels boots, or whatever. it would be way more convenient if i could download a program to do this, so i don't have to upload hundreds of pictures, and i also don't really want it all public. any thoughts?

have you ever ordered anything from what did you get? what colors?

will you tell me your favorite of something? favorite drink, favorite movie, favorite pair of shoes, whatever.

what would you pair with hot pinks shoes? i have one pair of midheel pumps, and one pair of hot pink plaid flats with black straps and buckles across the toe.

What are red flags/deal breakers for you when you go on a date or meet someone new you're interested in?

I went on a first date the other night with a guy I met online. When he began to discuss the time in his life when he was seriously considering suicide, I knew there wouldn't be a second date.

I've been in and out of sleep for a few hours. A little while ago I heard something that made me jump. I'm not sure if I fell asleep again but then I heard a yell, which I REALLY thought woke me up. I then heard talking right outside of my window (I live in a suburban neighborhood, not a city street or anything- it's 2:30am).

I got up to look outside but no one is anywhere to be found but there's a helicopter circling.

I tried to spend some time with my mom today while my dad was out, but even after watching me use my inhaler and commenting on my wheezing, she still wouldn't stop smoking, even for an hour.

I went to the doctor, but they actually won't see me until about mid November. Other than trying to stay away from known allergens, how can I keep my asthma in check when the inhaler only works for a little while?

I'm going to try staying out of the house as much as possible and only come home to sleep if I can, because this is ridiculous, and I really don't want to go back to the hospital.

I just watched the new episode of Family Guy and found it hilarious. If you've seen it, how funny did you find it? I usually just chuckle once or twice during a normal episode, but I laughed most of the time with this one.

Drivers license question

I have a driver's license from NJ. It has my old address on it. I need to switch it to a NY driver's license with my new address. To do that I need my social security card which I do not have. I was told at the DMV that it takes 2 weeks for you to get your card(I assume two weeks from the day you apply). So what I want to know is, if my car is registered in NY, but since my license is NJ will I be ticketed/fined/thrown in jail for driving with my NJ license with my old address until I have my NY license?

Its very important that I be able to make a few coming appointments, health related, and I need to be able to drive to them. I was told at the DMV to ask the police about it, but I'm assuming I can't just call a random police station. Looking online hasn't helped. I can not find information specific to this issue and the sites offering advice have waiting periods unless I want to pay a lot of money for this one question.

If an answer to my first question is unknown, does anyone know where I can call to find this information out?

Thanks much!

What is the proper term for someone who leaves just enough toilet paper on the roll that it looks like there's some there -- when in reality the next person who poops will be stranded on the bowl without sufficient means to perform the necessary post-evacuation hygiene?

Or, if you are not sure of the proper term, what do you personally call such a person (either audibly or within the confines of your own psyche) at that precise moment when you discover that such a person was, in fact, the last person before you to use the particular commode upon which you now find yourself so stranded?

Also, on an unrelated note: should I watch the x-files? I remember my parents watching it when i was young but I don't think I've ever seen an episode myself. I'm stuck in bed for the week so I need something to occupy my time!

I was being really loud in my apartment with music and washing dishes and everything. Then I heard my roommates alarm go off and apparently she was sleeping. I read the wrong day on her schedule and she doesn't have class till 2:30. (it's 1:00 pm) I feel like such a bitch if I kept her from sleeping well all morning.

Has anybody ever taken Prednisone before?   I am taking it because I had a fight with a cold and my asthma this past weekend and I lost.   Now I feel kind of shitty and I wonder if anybody who took it got headaches or if their face got hot feeling and a little red?  These are not listed side effects on the bottle, but I know they could be anyway.

What was your experience like with taking this medication? 

Edit:   Wow!  The few answers I am getting a making complete sense!    This actually helps!

The girl that sits next to me in one of my classes is ridiculously rude. But if I start sitting somewhere else I give up the seat next to the air conditioner. And 150 kids in a small room that just came in from 105 degree weather = I have the best seat.

What would you do? Give up your awesome seat and comfort or just put on your big girl panties and deal with it?
Note: her rudeness doesn't bother my learning but sometimes when she texts the buttons on her phone are audible and she always leaves early (which disrupts the whole class) etc.

I brought tuna, triscuits, a plum, a cheese stick and a mediterranean calzone to work. I also have a free pizza credit (from when they messed up my order a couple of weeks ago), a coupon for free cheese bread, and kind of want buffalo wings (the total with tip should be about $10). Should I order out or just et what I brought? I'm here for another 5 1/2 hours if that makes a difference.

Car seat covers

I'm in the market for new car seat covers. I live in Alaska, and, in case you didn't know, leather seats are awful at 20* below. I'm trying to figure out if I really want to spring for sheep skin, or if there is something out there that will work equally well.

A couple weeks ago, someone at work gave me a starter for Amish friendship bread that involves a sourdough starter, which I'm pretty sure is just flour, sugar and milk that kinda breeds a yeasty type magic that makes amazing bread.

Anyway, due to a series of events, I still have all four of my bread starters. They are all "fed" and alive and making this lovely beer-ish scent all over my kitchen counter, and I can't find anyone that wants to take them from me. Not even intimidation has worked in getting people to take them.

My question: Can I freeze the starters to make myself awesome bread at a later date? Will the starter live, I mean?

Alternatively, is there anyone in the Southington, Ct area that would like a starter and recipe for this incredibly great cinnamon bread?

I seriously ate two pieces while it was still hot in the pan before it was even out of the oven 10 minutes.

When was the last time you almost DIED??

I was just crossing an uncontrolled intersection and had gotten past the turn lane, the right lane, was waiting patiently on the yellow lines and I was about to continue crossing when this friggin idiot loser pulled out of the parking lot behind me at about 40 mph and nearly hit me with his mirror. He had his window down ( he looked like could have just gotten his license) so I yelled a few choice expletives at him. It made me feel better. :)

What is the last article/book/movie that made you really want to become an activist or do something about an issue?

For me, its a book called Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. It focuses on how the treatment of women in developing nations is a key component for improving life, economic health, and stability in many areas around the world. I've already given a couple loans out on to women entrepreneurs around the world, but I've decided that I want my entire Christmas gift to just be a donation and money that I can put into Kiva to help out with microloans.

If you'd like to read it, here is the site. It is seriously one of the most moving and inspiring books I have ever read.

I had to come home early from work today due to a migraine that has been unrelentingly horrid last night, causing nausea that won't go away. Now I can't sleep no matter how hard I try, my stomach is trying to tell me I'm hungry because it's empty, but every time I even drink some water I feel like I'm going to get sick.

So. What do you lovely kitties and puppies do to make yourselves comfortable so you can start feeling better? Do you have any little tricks that help with nausea or pain?

Help me feel better. :(

My dad's been bitching at me about me not playing my violin anymore. He'll say things like, "After all the time and money your mother and I spent on violins, repairs, running you to and from rehearsals, you should play more." Like I have to "pay back" the time and money they spent. I played violin for twelve years, most of the time pretty intensely (like an hour of practice a day plus extra rehearsals and private lessons once a week). My interests have just changed; it's not that I don't want to play anymore, it's that I have no one to play with and I don't feel my skills are up to a level where I could audition for an adult group and be accepted. When he was telling one of my friends about this last night, the friend really wanted to challenge him and argue, but I told him not to. Should I let him argue with him in the future? What do you think about musical education, TQC? Does a person have to play his/her instrument a certain number of times before the time and money spent on it will be "paid back"?

Is there anything I can do with this situation?

I legally (as in, there is a written contract) rent my room. It just so happens that it is in my mothers house. However, my mother doesn't own the house, my grandma does, which is who the contract is written with. I pay rent (to grandma), she does not.

She, without warning and without permission, enters my room and refuses to leave. She goes through my garbage, and keeps stuff out of it (she's a pack rat), and she does this thing where she will physically take things out of my, or my boyfriends, hands.

Legally? I am going to be getting a lock for my room, but that only takes care of one problem.

Also, as far as legally, my grandma threatens that we need to find a new place to live, provided I don't help get rid of my mothers things. Again, I pay rent, and mom does not. Can she do that? I mean, there's a contract with an indefinite amount of time.
