If you play/have played a musical instrument: Do/did you name your instrument? (The baritone sax I play is called Harley, after the motorcycle, after a trumpet player behind me remarked it made his seat vibrate like he was sitting on one.)
Don't play an instrument/Want another question: how clean is your living area right now?
Does anyone here have experience with someone with ODD? My son was recently diagnosed with precursors to the disorder. I'm taking it kind of hard. Blaming myself and whatnot. He's a very difficult child. How do I deal with this? Any parenting tips for me?
Did hajiomatic's daughter's boyfriend ever tell him what he wanted?
What's a book you think EVERYONE should read? For me, it's Maniac Magee.
(i dont do religion but i do knitting: I am a newbie knitter, and everytime i start to knit, whatever im knitting twists around the needle and when im done a row i have to basically untwist the whole thing, why, oh why is this happening?!)
(i dont do religion OR knitting, you freak: what is your favourite dessert EVER?!)
TQC, I have a dillemma and am not sure what to do with my cat over the holidays. I am planning to go back to my parents place (6-7 hours away) for about five days over christmas, and everyone I know in my current city is also gone and cannot look after kitty for me. Do I:
A) leave him alone for five days. I have a feeder/water bowl that will last him that long, but I'm worried about if the feeder jams or something and no one is there to check on him, he'll be without food most of that time. Also, he's a very social cat and would definitely hate being left alone that long.
B) Take him with us. This is the one I'm leaning towards, but Im worried such a long drive + a new environment for a week + another long drive would be stressful for him.
C) Take him to a cat kennel. I really don't want to do this one, but will admit its an option. But it's expensive and this is also a cat that's been taken back to the SPCA three times before we got him; I cant imagine me dropping him off at a kennel would be a pleasant experience for him.
Also, will you tell me some of the ridiculous things your pets have done? My kitty learned the other day that hiding behind the curtains and jumping out at unsuspecting people is hilarious. :\
What's the term or phrase that you find almost annoying when others use it? (I know, similar post yesterday, but not asking what your least favorite word is).
For me, primarily ASOLJ (as seen on LJ), I hate it when people use the term 'whilst' in place of 'while' and I can't stand when someone uses the phrase "fallen pregnant" as if it were something that just happens to you without your participation.
I had an interview today, and I think it went well! They said they'd be making their decision by Thanksgiving. I'm so impatient, it;s killing me! But I really hope I got it!
Question: Should I send a thank you note? Should I email it, since they'll be making their decision so quickly? Or should I still snail-mail it? Also, if I email it, I don't want to seem too eager. Should I wait until later tonight, or until tomorrow?
Do you have a lot of friends? Are you good in social situations? Do you make friends easily? Are you ever afraid others will think you're boring?
Would you find it weird if someone you didn't know that well called you up and asked you to hang out?
I'm 27 and I only have 2 proper friends, one of which I hardly see. I feel awfully pathetic sometimes but I find it really hard to make friends. I know a few girls casually that I think I'd like to be friends with, but I don't feel like I know them well enough to just call them up out of the blue and say "hey, wanna hang out?". Plus, it seems like everyone else already has a set group of friends and doesn't need more. I feel like I have this barrier in my head when it comes to social interactions, like I can never get it quite right. I don't often seem to be able to get past small talk. I think a big part of the problem is that naturally I want to be friends with smart, interesting, fun people, but I'm often intimidated by them at the same time.
I think I'm feeling a little down on myself for spending yet another Friday night at home on my sofa :P
I went and saw Twilight today and there was a trailer for Titanic which is being re-released in 3D in April. I was so excited to see that trailer. It was totally awesome. Is anyone else excited that they're re-releasing Titanic on the big screen?
ETA: There are now some Twilight spoilers in the comments so enter at your own risk.
TQC, I'm drunk. My boyfriend basically just told me that it doesn't bother him if I do something with someone else (physically speaking, of course). How would you feel about this? Especially if you're like me and don't support "permitted" polygamy, cheating, etc, in a relationship you think is strictly monogamous on both ends.
Has anyone seen Insidious? I'm sitting here watching it, alone in my house (my roommates are hours and continents away) and it's making me jumpy. :( I can't tell if it's because I've had too much hard cider or what.
What was the last thing you cooked? What are you craving right now?
