Do you think they would be particularly hideous on a fat person?

How long do you think I should make each writing sample be?I was thinking 4-7 pages each, but I'm afraid that'll be too long.
My roommates said they were going to have some friends over to watch scary movies tonight. Apparently our communication sucked, and I was silly and assumed this would be happening/ending at a reasonable hour and that it would be low key. When people were first arriving, one roomie came into my room and said "You should come out!" I told her, "No thanks, I'm actually wicked tired."
It is now 12:30, and it has only gotten louder. The living room is right outside of my bedroom so I cannot fall asleep. I'm already running on a small amount of sleep, and I have class at 8:30 am.
Usually I have no problem asking my roommates to keep it down, but there are so many people over and I just don't feel like being ~that guy~ who is a party pooper, you know?
Should I keep watching Halloweenie movies until they finally leave, or should I go out and be ~that guy~?
What was the last thing that REALLY aggravated you? How did you ultimately deal with it?
ETA: so I decided to be ~that guy~ and it wasn't very affective. They turned down the music a little bit but are still being loud and drunk. FML.
I've had a couple of pints and it's 1am.
My uncle and his family invited me to visit them in December (school holidays) for any amount of time (I'm thinking ~10 days)?
He's covering all expenses and they're more than rich enough to afford it.
It'll probably be better than fossilizing at home for two months.
My grandparents are coming too; more than one guest around= less awkward for me.
They do fun stuff because it's their school holidays too.
I will likely have to crash in my little cousin's room. She's half my age and I'll feel guilty, and weird about it.
I have to miss my family holiday, because they happen to be concurrent.
I don't happen to be terribly close to them.
Should I go, or not?
ETA: oops. I live in Singapore and they live in Sydney (roughly an eight-hour flight). Also, my family's holiday involves driving up to Malaysia and staying for three days, which kind of sounds less fun than Australia in my opinion.

why do i say "hella" hella often if i'm not even from the bay?
also, i am reading the post-halloween missed connections on craigslist nyc and they are wonderful. have you ever posted or responded to a missed connection? i have posted a couple but with no results, not surprisingly.
As a parent, if you couldn't afford diapers, would you leave your children in soiled ones for days at a time?
EDIT: This source is also claiming for some reason that low-income families can't use cloth diapers, when it's so easy to make them.
What about yours?
What's for breakfast? A happy apple! eg. a carmel and nut doused apple. :D
What for lunch? A sandwich and some gummy hotdogs and fries!
What accessories are you wearing today? A scarf and a bracelet.
Are you dressed nicely? A skirt and a jean jacket, the shebang. :D
Have a great day guys!
Pro: Of all the people I've dated, she's the only one I really hate. I can't imagine ever wanting to relive any of our memories.
Con: In the past, I've regretted deleting things (like all my LJ posts from 2001-2003.)
It was my 21st bday, went to Miami Beach and joined all the other drunk people on the streets and ran into my manager who I ended up kissing. Hope this doesn't make work too awkward!
i finally figured out systems of inequalities!!
If you have no grace, you have no claim.
The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities.
The reality of the other person lies not in what he reveals to you, but what he cannot reveal to you. Therefore, if you would understand him, listen not to what he says, but rather to what he does not say.
And each morning she would wake with it again in the cupboard of her rib cage, having become a little heavier, a little weaker, but still pumping. And by mid-afternoon she was again overcome with the desire to be somewhere else, someone else, someone else somewhere else.
What I got, I paid for.
Also, who else is having a shitty day? It makes me feel better when I know other people are having an equally crap day. :P
What's the last thing you argued with someone about?
What was the one Halloween costume you saw the most? Pimp seemed to be big at my parties I went to.
Are you hungry right now? I'm starving.
What major things do you have going on in the foreseen future? Drum corps auditions, fitness test, last midterm, Naval Academy applications due, and retaking my SATS (after a year of college, you would think I wouldn't have to. Damn Naval Academy)
If you're engaged and compiling your guest list, this question also applies.
If you're not yet engaged or married, how will you compile your guest list?
Alternate question: What's your favorite or most interesting dream?
Post Script: I'll tell you though, they make epic stories sometimes. o.o
2. Confess, how many of you stole candy last night and today from someone else's Halloween stash? What did you take? Was it worth it?
Do you do it?
Do you really believe everyone who tries on underwear does so over the underwear they're already wearing?
I really wish trying on underwear wasn't allowed. Working at a place that sells underwear, I find it so gross when a customer comes up to my register with a pair of inside out/clearly tried on underwear. I have to touch that! Recently, this guy came to my register and chucked a pair of inside out undies on my counter and they smelled like arse. I could smell them from where I was standing. Why don't these people know what size they are?
What is the last thing that you saw that was super awkward?
obvs i know that youtube can't prevent that stuff, i am just saying... awkward.
What are your favorite breads/pastries/etc to get from there?
When you have to write, how do you make yourself comfortable and focused?
I'm a member of lj_nanowrimo, but it doesn't look like it's ever updated - do you know of any good communities that are active?
Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? If so, what are you writing about?
My grade-school best friend's father just died. We drifted apart in middle school and I haven't even seen her since 8th grade (nearly a decade ago), but a mutual friend just texted me asking if I was going to the wake. I said no because I'm at school about two hours away, and I haven't gotten a response back. Was I somehow horribly insensitive?
If it was Mutual Friend's father, I'd drop everything and go home to be there for her, but I'm not sure how close she is to Ex-Friend's family/if she may be having a hard time with this too.
eta: If I went it would be to support Mutual Friend, who may also be grieving; I'm well aware my presence wouldn't make a difference to Ex-Friend. Sorry if my last line didn't make that clear. It's a moot point because I'm not going, but it's reassuring to know most of you wouldn't either. Thanks!
What was the last song you listened to?
Why do you like those stories?
Do you include any text within the email, or just send the resume as an attachment?
You're at the gym, doing squats with your back to a very large mirror. After you finish, you turn around and notice that a man had been secretly recording your reflection with his mobile phone the entire time.
How would this make you feel?
Thanks for your input!

Let's say you're sitting in a coffee shop with your laptop and other expensive personal items. What do you do when you have to go to the bathroom?
My boy will be gowing out his facial hair but not a mo
How childish can you act?
This whole thing is upsetting to me because she used to be my favorite aunt and now I kind of hate her for what she's doing.
My question: Should I try contacting her to explain to her how upset she's making everyone in the family and basically ask her one more time to try to forgive my mother or is this not my place to butt in? I just want everyone to get along and it makes me sick that she won't get over herself.
DK/DC: What's the worst family drama you've ever experienced?
Some dude just did that to me and for some reason it's really pissing me off. It could be because he was just an asshole in general. And I was working so it didn't jive well with his condecending tone. -_- And I hate being touched. I can still feel it after for a bit.
Oh I should add that he stood next to me but tapped my shoulder on the other side because I was looking that way. Doesn't even make sense.rawr
i forget if there was a running button in fallout3
Do you like it?
Do you think it's secretly worth $1000000???
Can you decipher the signature? (I can take a better picture maybe)
My friend thinks it's an oil painting. Do any of you know how I could restore it?
Should I take it to the antique store tomorrow? Maybe they'll know someone I could get to repair it or if it's even worth repairing.
What was your best thrift store find?
Will you entertain me?
stories, pix, videos, non sequiturs, etc all welcome
What was your favorite piece of equipment on the the playground?
What physical activity or game did you like as a kid?
I restarted my computer because the sound wasn't working, and when it restarted and the computer stopped loading I got these pop ups about fatal errors on my hard drive and how there was no space and I got pop ups from a program I don't think I ever had installed on my computer telling me I need to defragment it. And now I'm getting messages saying my RAM use is too high. I'm not sure if this is a real problem or if it's a virus trying to destroy my computer. Help?
Can you tell I'm not very computer literate? :(
What random last-minute-but-absolutely-fucking-vital things should I know about living in the UK?
(Nonsrs welcome :P)
Could you share any name ideas you have and wouldn't mind me using? May or may not apply to the show's concept, anything goes.
(Preferably something that will feed 6 people after a hard day's work!)
dk/dc: What dessert should I make tonight?
today my 400$ phone and 2gb memory card was stolen from work. (i work at a kindergarten). it was most definitely stolen and i'm pretty sure it was one of the parents. we questioned the parents that came to the centre (my phone was out of my locker for 20 minutes) but they deny any knowledge of it. the staff were all accounted for during the time as well. i have also put up a notice in the office about my phone. but i kinda need one pronto.
SO should i go buy a new phone tomorrow or wait and see if my phone turns up? im impatient and idk wut else i can do.
dgaf: what shitty thing has happened to you lately?
did they apologize??
(was it me?)

how does this picture make you feel?
Is it considered sloppy?
dk/dc: What take-out food are you currently addicted to?
How do you get rid of anxiety?
Have you ever noticed what the audience is wearing on his show? Do you think standard old man jeans and some kind of button up shirt is okay?
We are going there straight from the airport and won't really get a chance to change. I'm wearing a casual-ish skirt, with some kind of top and a cardigan. However I'm pretty sure my dad isn't even bringing any pants other than jeans.
I had one before, it was penis shaped and water proof, but it never caused me to orgasm.
Though, it was used by someone else before it had a chance to help me orgasm. I couldn't bring myself to use it again after it was returned.
I'M GONNA GLOAT ANYWAY.
If you were a bird, what kind would you be?
I'd probably be a grackle. Kzzzark!
I was planning on saving the second half of my meal for tomorrow's lunch but my mom yelled at me and told me I was being selfish for not sharing with my stepdad. If he wanted some he should have told me before I started cooking.
Some guy barked at me while I was walking home from the subway tonight. Whether he was doing it to get a rise out of me, because he thought I was really ugly, or because he has really misguided ways of showing interest, it ruined my night.
What is your favorite YouTube video involving puppies? Share!
Do you put anything fun on your popcorn (besides butter/salt)? What?
Sometimes I just want to join the mob or a biker gang or some sort of international spy ring. But it's probably waaaaay more stressful than it looks on TV and I don't need that.
I remember being at someone's cottage, fishing. There are pictures on our wall of the event and people are always amazed I remember it. I always thought I was three but I looked on the back of the photo and I'm actually 2 years and about 4 months.
ETA: Why? (That's what I'm mostly interested in.)
try it now
What do you like to read? What don't you like?
If you're reading a book and you decide you don't like it, do you keep reading it anyway? I don't. I fucking break up with books as soon as they piss me off.
What's something you're looking forward to in November?
