Watched Brokeback Mountain last night.
I can't get over this movie now!
Listening to this song won't help me either. (The chord at 0:21 is pretty much a punch to my stomach, ooh)

What was the last movie /film that left you emotionally distraught?

Should I go to work today or tomorrow?
I'm an intern with no set schedule. The only day I actually need to be at work is Friday. I have a paper that I need to write for my boss due Friday. I have all the research done, but I need to compile it. I need to go in either today or tomorrow to finish it.

I originally had planned to go today, but now I'm just not feeling up to it. But I don't know if I'm making the right decision and I need to figure it out before I get dressed.

When should I go to work?

IN GENERAL:
- Work is a half hour drive in each direction.
- If I don't want to take lunch, I don't have to.
- Money is of no concern as I'm unpaid.

TODAY:
- If I go today I have to miss one of my classes where attendance is taken.
- I'll be able to stay from 10:30-4:30.
- I have to be back on campus at 5:15.

TOMORROW:
- If I go tomorrow I have to miss a class, but the teacher said going tomorrow is optional and attendance won't be taken.
- I can only stay from 12:30-4:30.
- I have to be back on campus at 5 for another class.

Mr. Pants Says

what to do? what to do?

Breakfast has broke, the house is tidied, and now I have a choice: rent On Stranger Tides for a buck and change, or play Skyrim. I can't do both as I don't have that much time. Option 3 is take a nap and feel completely guilty about it.

Update: Just got the septic system fixed, so it's laundry and Skyrim!

What simple thing made you happy recently?

Oven Cleaning Tips?

So, my landlord who is an awesome landlord to have, is having a new oven/stove delivered to me tomorrow and I have to clean my old oven.

Unfortunately, it's not a self-cleaning oven!

Any hints, tips, or whatever so I don't have to break my back cleaning it tonight when I get off work? (I won't get home until close to 10 pm from work tonight, I'm guessing, by the time I get dinner. :-p) I also don't want to use something super toxic and smelly because I have two cats and I prefer not to poison the atmosphere here. 

I'd like to have it sparkling clean so the recipient charity - Loving Hearts - can just either put it out for sale or donate it out right
away.

DK/DC:  What's the plan for dinner tonight? (I'm planning on soup & salad at Gingham's in Ellisville.)

How do you feel about dead pepole having a facebook page? There are some people I know who have died and their facebook pages are still up and running, and some who have "in memorium" facebook pages. The ones that were never deleted are kind of eerie to me, because there's so much life in them. The in memorium ones I can handle a little better.

Okay so.. I would've posted this to bakebakebake but the posting is moderated and I am craving chocolate and impatient.

I was thinking of making these brownies and putting this chocolate sauce IN the mix/batter. I was wondering if that would be ok.
Would using the sauce in the mix make the mix too liquid-y? Or should I substitute the sauce for.. maybe the water in the brownie recipe? Or do you know of any other good chocolate-y recipes that don't need milk, eggs, margarine or butter?

Thanks!
BLAARGH!

TQC, I need a bombshell for my NaNo. I was thinking it's either going to be a family secret that's just come to light, or a major plot twist, like a flock of marauding, carnivorous flamingos. I'm leaning more towards the family secret, though. What should it be? Some kind of genetic illness? Stolen jewels from Bonnie & Clyde hidden in the basement? A parent presumed dead who's not actually dead anymore? WEREWOLVES?

Will you help me ID a spider for me? I don't have any pics, but it was about the size of a quarter all told, with long brown spindly legs and a golf ball looking butt.

I live in the South East. Any ideas?

Er. So I just found out I'm on academic probation and I have a just under a year and a half left in my degree....how fucked am I? Is it even possible to pull my marks up to a B-ish range? (I'm not capable of doing well, Its just that I totally fall apart under stress, so I have grades ranging from A-s to Fs)
Related to that - Am I still able to apply for BC/Canada student loans? Google is failing me on that question.

I'm in the market for some new dishes and silverware. Where is someplace that cute and not too expensive stuff?

EDIT: I've already looked at Target, IKEA and BBB. I'm looking for something with a bit more personality.

I ordered 2 pairs of heels for work from zappos. When they're on my feet they pinch at the widest part of my foot and kinda squish my toes (they're round-toed). However, they almost seem too loose at the heel. Size too small? Width too narrow? What's the remedy? :[

Band On Suburgatory

Okay TQC, the show Suburgatory had a band that they called Average Shelf Life. I liked what I heard but my Google Fu is failing me and this band doesn't seem to exist. Who was the band REALLY?

Fellow gamers...

What games have you been playing lately? I'm playing Saints Row The Third and Red Dead Redemption.

Have any of you played Skyrim yet? What are your thoughts so far? I'm thinking of getting it but I'm not sure if it's for me. I've never played any of the other games in the series.

I accidentally cut my dog's paw somehow clipping her nails. Blood everywhere! But she got her paw wrapped up and got a few treats out of it. She's happy.

How long should I leave it wrapped? Until the bleeding has stopped?

Job or Money

Generally speaking what is more important to you, loving your job or loving you pay?

I have a job I love with the best boss I could ever ask for (for example she surprised me with a wedding present today consisting of a bottle of nice chardonnay and a $50 gift card to a restaurant.) I make enough but not a whole lot.

I know a relative who could get me a job at a hospital making fairly good money but I'm just not sure I want to leave my job now.

I'm curious to see your opinions on what is more important to you, job or money.

To people that enjoy supernatural scary movies: Would you consider Paranormal Activity 3 to be one of the good ones? (And, if you've seen them all, did you like the first one? The second one?)

I'm debating whether or not I should see the 3rd. I loved the first one. Second one was kind of laughable. But I hear the 3rd is potentially better?

You know that feeling you get if you miss a step when going down the stairs? I've been feeling that for the last two days. Heart pounding, feeling shaky, etc. It was so bad I couldn't sleep last night and I'm worried that I won't sleep tonight either. All google has come up with is anxiety but I've nothing to be anxious about. Have you experienced this? If so, how long did it take to stop? It's starting to be a problem.
