When my boyfriend and I get our own place, we are VERY interested in getting a ferret (or two).
He has had them before but I haven't. I will continue to read up on them and ferret-proof anything in my house before getting them.
Any tips for a future ferret owner?
Also please talk about ferret experiences and post pictures of yours :D
Also if I still happen to have my hamsters when I get ferrets, I am going to make sure the hamster cages are always in a closed room away from the ferrets, but what other precautions should I take? Potentially some kind of extra sort of "lock" on the cage doors? Have you ever had caged pets with ferrets, if so, did your ferrets harass them?

If a store is offering a free item when you spend a certain amount of money there, can you spend it and get the free item, and then exchange it later for something of equal value? Or will they not allow it/hate you? (The free item in question is worth $17 but I don't want it. I would love to have $17 of store credit though).

Do you recycle? Does the place where you live require you to rinse out bottles/cans before you can recycle them? If yes, do you think this really seems like that much of an extra effort?
If you lived with a bunch of people, like if you were all renting a house together, and everyone bought most of their own food but it was agreed that people would just take turns buying things that go bad, like milk, but somehow three milk jugs ended up in the fridge (each one holding one gallon) would you use all of the milk in the jug that was open first before opening the next one? Would you be annoyed if all three were open at the same time? How do you not notice there are already two gallons before buying the third? Why would you open the third one before the other two were used?

What can you tell about a person by the way they drive?
A guy who pulled up next to me at a traffic light stopped in the middle of the crosswalk. That told me he had no respect for rules. Then we came to a part of the road where the left lane was closed for repair, and he sped to get past and ahead of me, though I was already driving slightly over the speed limit, and there were no other cars with us on that stretch of road. That told me he had some dire need to be ahead of other people. Then, further down the road, he tailgated a car in front of him. That told me he was pushy, and perhaps controlling.
Now what about when you’re in someone’s passenger seat and they’re driving in a manner which they know makes you uncomfortable? Say, they tailgate, and they slam on the brakes a lot, even though you’re obviously not liking it? Can you think of other situations in which you can assume personality traits by the way someone drives?
my friend works for a company that hires all of its employees as independent contractors so that they can pay them less than minimum wage.... is this legal? it's just regular old jobs like office assistant, payroll, etc.
So this is interesting...
I got this message in my Facebook inbox:
"Remember the game last year about what color bra you were wearing at the moment? The purpose was to increase awareness of October Breast Cancer Awareness month. It was a tremendous success and we had men wondering for days what was with the colors and it made it to the news. This year's game has to do with your handbag/purse, where we put our handbag the moment we get home for example "I like it on the couch", "I like it on the kitchen counter", "I like it on the dresser" well u get the idea. Just put your answer as your status with nothing more than that and cut n paste this message and forward to all your FB female friends to their inbox. The bra game made it to the news. Let's see how powerful we women really are!!! REMEMBER - DO NOT PUT YOUR ANSWER AS A REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE- PUT IT IN YOUR STATUS!!! PASS THIS TO ALL THE WOMAN YOU KNOW."
Does anyone else think this is kind of stupid? I mean, I'm all for awareness, but what the hell does the location of my purse and sexual innuendo have to do with breast cancer? Better yet, why not spread awareness in a more direct way? Or am I over-thinking this too much and should just enjoy the "game"?
whose phone numbers do you have memorized?
me: my mom, stepdad, three best friends, my best friend's mom... and that's it.
what kind of resources do you use to write our academic papers? i'm writing a term essay on project runway and i have tried all the resources i usually use but haven't found any paper that focuses on this tv show(if there is any). so if you know of any resources/journals please let me know? :) TYVM!
What's your opinion on Yoko Ono?
i have a closet in my room that i keep my cat's litter box in. i keep the door just slightly propped so she can get in and out. i clean it every day, but it still makes my whole room smell. is it because the closet is not vented? any tips for keeping it odor-free?
i used to just keep it on the floor in my old room and never had a problem, but i think because i don't use any HVAC that the air isn't circulating as much. opening windows helps a little but it's getting way too cold to do that.
How do you study when your teacher sucks and you have no source material to use?
The internet helped me a lot, but I'm stuck on the damn essay questions which are really broad and cover a huge time span. My history teacher bullshits his way through his lectures, which are all based on information the book doesn't cover, and that is what were being tested on. His powerpoints suck majorly too. It's just bulleted information in which were supposed to fill out with his lectures, but all he does is rant about Twilight and talk how he got super drunk last weekend. Uggghh *headdesk from 5 hours of cramming*
Basically just commiserate with me and tell me your words of wisdom for getting a decent grade in a shitty class.

Have you ever, for whatever reason, cut a major food group of of your diet (red meat, fish, etc.) and then managed to successfully start eating it again after a lengthy period of time?
I can't even remember why but I stopped eating all forms of seafood when I was 5-6 years old and haven't touched it since. I tried to eat a piece of sushi recently and couldn't even chew it without starting to gag/feel like I was gonna throw up. My body just seems to reject it all now.

How long would you wait in a doctor's exam room before you went to ask what was taking so long? I waited an hour and twenty minutes without saying anything, and I kind of wish I had said something. There was no one in the waiting room when I got there, and I could hear the doctor across the hall on the phone for most of the time I was waiting in the back room.
What's the longest time you remember waiting at a doctor's office? Three hours. And that was just in the waiting room.

Tomorrow I am having a meeting with my manager and a coworker. Said coworker and I have had some problems with each other and are having a meeting to try and resolve the issues and get back to a comfortable place with each other. I'm not always great with confrontations. Would it be acceptable if I wrote some key notes down and brought them into the meeting with me so I remembered everything I wanted to say? This is my first job and no one else here has ever brought notes into a meeting like this.

what's the deal with these silly bands that my brother is obsessed with?
Has there been anything that you've loved so much that you needed to purposefully distance yourself from because of the degree it affected you? I'm thinking things besides relationships, and along the line of things that are almost (or actually are) addictive to you personally, things besides drugs, alcohol, etc. Not that kind of addiction.
For me, there's a band that I'm needing to distance myself from because I get WAY TOO into the music (or the music is just that amazing and I can't imagine not getting so into it) and it can take over my life or just really have too strong an impact on me, emotionally. It's hard to resist the music. I still listen to it, but I do limit myself.
What's the best yoga DVD for beginners that you have tried? Something where the poses are easy for someone overweight.

What was the last thing that made you go OH MY FUCKING GOD HOLY SHIT?
My mom came home and would not go in the garage, and then she starts slamming the horn. So I'm all like wtf and I go outside and she tells me to...go away. And honking some more. I turn around and OH MY FUCKING GOD HOLY SHIT THERE WAS THIS GIANT ASS TURKEY VULTURE ON THE ROOF, and when I turned to look at it IT DECIDED TO EXPAND IT'S WINGS AND SCREECH AT ME DUDE THEY WERE LIKE 6' ACROSS.
That was scary as shit. All these neighborhood kids walked by with an older adult and they just stood in awe in front of my house...and then they ran suddenly.
Why the fuck are there turkey vultures in the Philly area!?

What is your ten word legacy?
If given the chance to bring one celebrity back from the dead (interpret celebrity however you want), who would you NOT choose?
I know everyone is sick of hearing about the breast cancer thing, but I just want a second opinion. Would it be douchey of me to post this Facebook status?
[You know what you could actually do to help breast cancer awareness? Marked packages of Dannon yogurt have a code on the inside that you can enter online to donate 10¢ to the NCBF. It's not much, but it's more than using a silly sexual reference to make Breast Cancer Awareness Month all about yourself.]
I know a lot of people might feel like donating to fight breast cancer is time consuming or something, and I just wanted to get across that there was an easy way to make a difference. But I don't want to anger my friends who have "likes it on the bathroom counter" as their status. Does it sound too mean? What should I say?
Edit: I'm posting it. But I'm waiting until tomorrow, since it's like midnight here and no one is on. Thanks for the encouragement.
