As I'm from Ireland I'll be taking my Irish mobile phone with me.
I'd need to be available to take calls from UK numbers for an event I'm organising.
How does someone with a UK phone number call an Irish mobile phone whilst the Irish phone is in the UK?
Do they dial the same number (00 353 etc) as they would if the Irish mobile was in Ireland?
I was watching The Secret Life of Bees, starring both Queen Latifah and Alicia Keys AND NEITHER OF THEM SANG ANYTHING! It annoyed me so much

How bad did they suck?
Do you ever get them still, as an adult?
Yahoo answers is telling me I still feel growing pains because I have lupus. Do you have lupus?
Favorite TGIF show?
I loved step-by-step.
Have you ever cut your own hair? As a kid or actually giving yourself a haircut doesn't matter. I took safety scissors to my hair in kindergarten and boy, did I ever get in trouble for that. I've trimmed my hair a bit before, but never more than a cm or two.
What's the farthest you've ever been away from home? The farthest for me is just outside of Peoria, Il, which is just about 610 miles from where I live.
Why can't I go more than a page back on entries?
How much does someone have to drink before you consider them to be an alcoholic/ on the path to alcoholism? How many times a week:? How many drinks a week/ day?

I am working on a story for a secret Santa exchange and was wondering if anyone knew of like the swankiest hotel in Seattle that would have epic ballrooms and such.
Trying to place chain of events there and want to be as correct as I can.
Thanks for the help! :)
What is the last truly awesome, mind boggling thing you saw/read/heard about?
In about half an hour, I will also have a working puppet hand-made to resemble a certain popular internet celebrity.*
To test the rig, I want to make a video of my puppet dancing or acting out a song.
What song should I use?
*(If you happen to care, it's The Nostalgia Critic.)
Besides the obvious ones like Thriller and Superstition, I got those already.
If not, how do you break up with someone?
DK/DC: What was the last sweet you ate? Was it good?
The next zombie movie comes out and the walking dead are out there looking for 'brains'. However, it's this kind of 'brains'. Instead of shotguns and chainsaws, the living are using kneepads and hand lotion. Would this be a more enjoyable or less enjoyable movie for you now?
Your SO says he/she wants to 'fuck you like an animal', as they sing along with NIN's song 'Closer'. What kind of animal will they fuck you like, assuming you're the animal?
Since you answered the above question, I can only assume you're into this stuff. So, how long have you and your SO been engaged in bestiality roleplaying?
When it comes to Mondays, how exciting are they to you?
I'm still several years away from having children, but lately I've been so curious as to how people make this work. I feel that I would want to stay home and raise my kids from ages 1-3 and I want about 2. This means that I would be out of the workforce for about 6 years. How on earth would I go back? I'm also in advertising, a really fast-paced industry, so I'm not sure how it would be possible to catch back on...
If you don't have kids yet, but want them, what do you see yourself doing?
I have an SD Extreme II card for my DLSR camera that I bought about 2 months ago and have been using since. When I went to go use it the other day, my camera wouldn't recognize the card and only wrote pictures to my camera's internal memory (which only holds 13 pictures...) I got a notice after trying to pop the card out and in a few times that the card was corrupted, or had corrupted data on it.
I've been googling how to restore the card and everything I read talks about "I was able to get the pictures off" etc etc... I don't have any pictures on there I care to "get off", I just want to be able to write pictures onto it again. Am I able to do that still or is this card toast? What exactly happens to a corrupted card and is it un-corruptable? I want to know before I go out and buy another $80 card (ugh) and am not able to try the downloaded software people suggest right now.
2. When there are cars waiting for you while you are crossing the street, do you hustle or just walk regularly/slowly?
3. What did you last eat?
I really want to watch Dexter, but Sidereel is failing me. Megavideo keeps removing the episodes and I've never had this problem.

Recently I've been doing a page and circling all the answers, then going through and bubbling them in at the end of the page.
If you regularly use a sponge to wash your dishes by hand, how often do you replace it with a new one? How many people use it?
I'm not sure how long it's been but our current sponge is gross and I want to figure this out so I can avoid nasty-sponge smell next time.
So yesterday, after showering, I tried wrapping my damp hair up in strips of cloth in order to curl them. You know, rocking it old school since I'm flat ass broke and can't afford a curling iron or anything like that.
After my hair dried and I took the strips out, I had pretty nice curls.
But about fifteen minutes later, the curls were basically gone. My hair was just kind of...poofy at that point.
What can I do to help the curls keep their shape? Would just going to town with some hair spray be enough? Or is my super straight hair just destined to stay that way forever?
So I've been invited to a party this Saturday and the dress code is classy.
Girls: what do you wear to dress classy?

Edit: Is there another bot going around the connects LJ users when they post? Immediately after this post I got an instant message from "642159345" asking if I am a wizard. I did not reply.

I have a phone interview with a principal soon for a teaching position, anyone here ever had a phone interview? What kinds of things did you do to psych yourself up for it?
There was a singer on the show who was "found" while he was working at Urban Outfitters. He's young, white, had short dark hair, and sang a song titled "Meet Me in the Fall" off his new album. Small problem - nothing at all comes up when I search for his song, his appearance on the show, anything. Google has failed me. Does anybody know the name of the singer? It's driving me INSANE.
In the original you cook it at two different temperatures, and I really have no idea about this kind of stuff.
Does this make sense to you?
"Lavar solamente en seco"
It's on my scarf's cleaning instructions label and I was just wondering if it was a bad translation.
I figured it meant dry clean only, but I wasnt sure if that was the correct way to say it. But I guess it is!

For those of you who went to college, did you ever transfer? If so, why? From where to where? Any other details?
I'm a freshman in college, I've been here for about 2 months. So far I've made very few good friends.. I don't have much of a close social group, just lots of acquaintances. I don't have a problem finding people to hang out with, study with, or eat with, but I don't feel very comfortable with them. I'm not finding much to do in the area, short of getting high or drunk. I'm also not enjoying my classes as much as I'd hoped, and I've skipped class more times than I'm willing to admit. High school was very easy for me, so I'm confused by how difficult I'm finding college, and how dumb I feel. On top of all this, the tuition here at my school is sky high, and I don't know if I'm getting my money's worth. I like my school, but I feel I could be happier elsewhere and am considering looking into a school close to home (which is an hour and a half from here), but I'm afraid of getting stuck in my hometown/area. Everyone here seems so settled and comfortable already, and I'm just..not. I'm just a bit disappointed by this whole thing because I was so sure this was the right school for me, but now I'm not so sure. Obviously I have to give it more time, and I must make this choice for myself but I'd definitely like to hear others povs.
So, what should I consider before making a decision to transfer?
If yes, then post your email address and I'll send the email off to you.
I'm left with a "bahaha, that sucks" and then an "ah shit" feeling.
You work in a deli and are helping a customer. After slicing some ham for him, he also asks for turkey. You inquire, "how much?" but the guy cannot hear/comprehend you. You repeat yourself multiple times, trying your best to enunciate. Apparently frustrated, the customer throws his bag of ham at you, tells you to go to hell, and calls you a moron.

A technician is in his workshop, and was speaking to the protagonist while working on a sex-robot. He asked, "Do you know what wears out most frequently on these models?" The protagonist makes a face and replies that he doesn't really want to know. "The ears," the technician replies. "People talk to them, and get too close to the instruments, and they burn out. People are lonely, and need someone to talk to."
EDIT: Minor grammar fail fix.

I got a message from a friend who wants me to do their family portrait, but . . . she didn't say anything about paying me. She was like "You can use the pictures for your website." Which sort of implied to me that she would not be compensating me. Well, the pictures won't be that useful to me and besides, most of my paying clients willingly sign model releases anyway so I don't need portraits for my website. More importantly, I don't really specialize in family portraiture anyway and I'm not marketing to that crowd. Basically, it would be a lot of work for absolutely nothing. I don't want it I want to be like, "Sure, I'll do it. For XXX amount of dollars." But that seems blunt. I've never gotten the hang of this dilemma but it seems like family/friends expect to be able to exploit your services for nothing even when you haven't offered and even when that service would normally cost them thousands of dollars (like wedding photography).
What would you do?
