I have a history test in the morning. Four unknown essay questions, 800 words minimum.
Am I going to do ok?
How do you study?
I just had some fried plantains and they were heavenly!
Also, why are the majority of people so afraid of small insects? I nearly had a heart attack just now when a longed legged spider darted across my computer desk.
What should I buy on amazon.com that is less than $5?
What movie is this?
In the start it's a guy who is crying or something and it's dark and he's going into the subway. He sees a girl on the tracks who is dressed in all white and has white hair. She's playing with a white ball. The train is coming and the guy starts yelling and climbs down and gets hit. The next scene is a girl waking up and she comes to the scene of the guy getting hit by the train. It's flashes to a police station with two guys talking and then some cops bring in this guy who is bleeding from his eyes and screaming in a foreign language and he has like blond spiky hair.
The actress looks like a young Meryl Streep and the guy kinda like Ewan McGregor but it's not him.
Do you think it's okay to discipline other people's kids? I'm not talking about screaming or anything, just a "Hey, please stop doing that." or "You better stop, you might get hurt."
TQC, what's your favorite non-pill related insomnia treatment? Doesn't have to work, but...

yesterday, a friend of mine did this and I was shocked and told her that if she was going to continue to do things like this that I couldn't be friends with her anymore. I never knew she was a shoplifter :(
Does anyone have any tried and true bug bite treatments? I mostly have mosquito bites but some look like spider bites too. :(

4. My wrist
I've been reading about my Aboriginal roots, getting more involved in my culture and I realize that no matter how silly or "new age" or redundant people think using my Anishinabe name is, it's important to acknowlege it. It's not some hippy thing, it's my culture.
I've been challenged to go by my Spirit name by my friends and Elders until it feels normal. This is because soon my son will have his own Spirit name and I'm going to use it at home, and I plan on enrolling him in an Aboriginal school where the kids usually go by their Spirit names as it is our culture. Honestly, it feels weird and the people I already know can't seem to switch over from my European name. Some even get second hand embarrassment when I use my Spirit name.
Should I use the Ojibwe language or the English translation when I introduce myself and my son when he gets his name?
Zwashko Ahnungo or Blue Star.
Is this weird? Sometimes it feels like more trouble than it's worth...but I still feel that I shouldn't be embarrassed about using it if I want to.
What things in your culture do you partake in, if anything?
I have some pasta that I got 5 days ago. I just remembered that I still have leftovers and was thinking of eating it for lunch today. Is 5 days too old? Should I just throw it out and get new lunch?
Will you tell me about your most romantic encounter?
Sorry for all the mushy questions. I'm obviously getting some this week.
Is anger a form of suffering?
Does anger ever feel good to you?
I'm meant to be heading to a festival tomorrow to work. My boss said someone could give me a lift and to send him my address which I did. I haven't heard any more since, and they're not answering the phones.
What should I do?

What can i put in the drier with my imitation down pillow so that it will dry evenly? It has a bad habit of holding moisture in the middle, so I'll think it's dry when i pull it out, but when i lay on it, it's damp!
I've heard of using a tennis ball, but I don't have one, and I can't really go buy one.
DK/DC - what is your favorite chore, and what is your most hated chore? meaning things you have to do around the house, housekeeping.

You just came back from your lunch break.
You realize that you have something stuck between your teeth, and it's very visible. There aren't any toothpicks or any other instruments that can help remove it.
Your tongue powers are futile.
You have a presentation in 10 seconds.
What do you usually have for breakfast?
And dinner...? Do you have a few regular meals you'll eat every week, the same thing every night, or incredibly varied?
What would you do if you had the ability to time travel? Other than making money....
I'd take a portable DVD player and some DVDs to the past and tell them it's real life and freak everyone out.
My ex broke up with me about three years ago after being together for seven years. I have a lot of his clothes in my attic. There are two things in particular that I know have some serious sentimental value.
I was thinking of mailing his dad this stuff. Would it be weird to just receive a random box of shit after all this time?
I don't speak to him anymore and while I know where he lives, there's a good chance that the house is empty right now or at least for the next few months.
What should I do?
I have a hard time driving in flip-flops (I'm so out of practice with it...), and driving barefoot is even weirder. Do you ever drive completely barefoot, with flip-flops on, or just socks?
My last apartment I paid a $400 security deposit. I also paid the water/sewer/refuse bill because the landlord sent me the bill. So I went to the office and paid it but it turns out the landlord also paid it because she assumed we would send her the money. We got the list of charges out of the security deposit which included $20 for moving a few things of wood so they could mow, and $102 for the bill WE ALREADY PAID! How would you go about getting the money back? I'm going to punt a bitch!
What should I buy at the mall today? Will you post pictures?
All I know is that I need a pair of white pumps in my life.
I need links to fashion blogs or something.
What is something you want to buy soon?
What's something inexpensive that takes blood stains off walls? (We had bedbugs, so most of the blood is squashed bugs, but it looks gross. :( )

ETA: I've already made strawberry.
I'm wanting to make bamboo earrings for my stretched ears. I've got a mass supply down in the garden, and found some which is about the right size. What do I need to do to it now before sticking it in my ears, and what to people do to make bamboo jewelery more pretty?
A point in the right direction would be great too!
I have a box of cake mix that expired 6 months ago. It says "BETTER BY NOV 2010". I wanted to use it, but am wondering what the downfalls of using a slightly aged boxed cake mix would be.
my vagina is bleeding and my period just ended a week ago. i had sex without a condom a couple days before my period started but he didn't cum inside me. am i pragnet?

Do you like your own default icon?
ETA (due to an accidental double-post):
Would you ever consider meeting someone from a dating site in real life? If yes, how long would you wait to do it? Would you talk to them on an IM service first, or just e-mails?
I have; a couple weeks; we talked on AIM for a while, but it wasn't a necessity for me.
tqc, my fucking stove just blew up in my face. i am fine except for some singed hair. my apartment is also fine, except now the heating element has a huge hole in it and so does my favorite frying pan. also, there are half-cooked eggs in my sink.
what are the chances that this is NOT a wiring issue? the stove is really fucking old and i'm pretty sure when the heating element goes, it just stops working...it doesn't blow up. right? i mean, these things have to be replaced all the time, they can't possibly blow up every time their little lives end.
what do you usually cook in the microwave? what are some interesting raw food ideas? this is justification for just getting pizza tonight, right?
I was just outside pulling some weeds and spreading mulch in the backyard, in a heaped-up area around small trees. We moved into this house last fall and I really have no clue what plants are in the garden beyond obvious shrubs - some flowering things that seem to be there on purpose, some weeds. I'm no horticulturist, for sure. While I was working around the base of a clump of plants, my skin started stinging. These plants don't look exactly like stinging nettles (which I had the misfortune of falling into as a kid, ouch) but they do have little hairs on the leaves. I finished up, came into the house to wash up, and noticed I actually have a few little welts. Washed with baking soda and it still hurts a little but it's not unbearable.
Is there a typical garden or yard plant that has similar properties to stinging nettle? If this thing is a weed, I'm going to Roundup its ass and yank it out (with gloves) when it's dead. If it's a "good" plant I'll just be super careful in the future.
Those with jobs that pay by the hour, how much do you get paid per hour?
i had the guy i like show me how to use my dad's expensive camera today and i keep looking at the pictures i took of him with it. IS THIS NORMAL? why do i feel like such a creeper doing this?
TQC, how do you know when you're normal amounts infatuated and when you're a creep? i feel like i need to listen to "Do the Creep" 100x because it was so obviously written with me in mind.
If I wanted to court a gorgeous gelfling with my literary merit, would I be justified at being righteously enraged at someone for taking something I had public and made private then sharing it against my will?

Do you ever worry about being a "christian soldier" in an area of your life, that is, being a representative for your whole group, and thus having to be 100% perfect 100% of the time, lest people judge you group by you and regard it as invalid? If so, what group/s, and how do you act differently?
I try to avoid it, but sometimes feel that way around people unfamiliar with veganism. And I worry that people will think polyamory is just a big slutfest just because I am unrelatedly a big slut.

I get horrible "growing pains" in my legs... at least I assume that's what they are. They're to the point where it makes me puke because of the pain and the fact that I cannot fall asleep with them. Its usually every other night but sometimes more and sometimes less) right now its my left leg and its still making me sick.
