So I'm rewatching Gilmore Girls and in the first season, when Rory is 15/16 and just starting Chilton, a private high school, a girl comments on how she's a journalism major. Do private high schools (very high class ones if that matters) have "majors"? Or was this just some kind of plot flaw?

eta: What is the difference between Mrs, Ms, Miss? I've never known besides Mrs is pronounced differently and means a married women, I believe?

I am getting a kitten next weekend. I asked the girl who is fostering him what kibble he is eating, but I know that there is probably an optimal kitten kibble out there.

TQC, what brand of kitten food is best to feed the little guy? He is 3 months old. Picture is here. (he was rescued from a fight and is being treated for his scratches).

Is there any way to make chapters when using 2epub to convert a word document to epub?

I want to make anthologies of shortish fanfics for community collections, but I don't want to have to click through a bunch of pages guessing at where the stories are.

Today is the last day of one of the most stressful years of my life (mostly good stressors, but still stressors) and people have been extra shitty this holiday season at the store where I work. I always feel like I'm just hours away from a nervous breakdown, and customers have complained about me to management at least twice in the last week alone.

What could I do for myself to recharge and prevent a violent outburst?

Srs pls :'(

Are there any colors you wish you looked good in, but just don't?

Because I wish I could wear buttercup yellow so bad but I look like such a load of ass in yellow.

Did you wear bindis in the 1990's?

I'm going through kind of a big family issue right now. I want to tell my friends but I also don't want to ruin their night tonight. I also don't want to start their year off on a such a crappy note...but I think I need their support.

Is it selfish for me to bring it up?
Would tomorrow be better than tonight?

Sooooooooooo... hypothetical situation: You go out and order a mountainous piece of cheesecake in which to indulge in the privacy of your own home. But when you get home, you put the box on the chair by the door and forget about it. The room is about 67 overnight. When you find it the next day---do you eat it?

Alternatively, what was your childhood "sacred" object/blanket/stuffed thing? Do you still have it?

tonight, i will be drinking, with the intention of getting comfortably drunk. i haven't touched alcohol in quite a few years, since i went through the whole 'hey i'm legal let's drink as much as possible and vomit and have an awful hangover the next day!' thing, and the feeling of being overly drunk is not something i want to experience again, but for some reason, tonight i really want to say 'fuck it' and drink, maybe because i'm always in such strict control and constantly denying myself things that i want (eating disorder issues), and i just want to not be like that.
i bought a 4-pack of blueberry-lemonade vodka beverage, and a bottle of blackberry merlot.
i will be with my partner and friends, playing board games, watching bad movies, and eating sushi.
have any of you ever given up drinking for a while? what was it like when you drank again? are you glad you gave it another try?
what will you all be drinking?
what will you be doing besides drinking?

tqc,

I was supposed to see my SO tonight for New Years. Following pros and cons:

Pros:
- SO
- Video games

Cons:
- his family (x3)
- hour long drive I'm not up for
- won't get anything done

Should I stay or should I go?

edit: I've been iffy on it all week, so it isn't shittily out of the blue.

Random q, TQC.

When I was younger and my dogs used to scratch themselves (you know, with their back feet, scratching), my parents said my dogs were "bugging". Now when my hamster scratches, my hamster is "bugging".
Have you heard/used this colloquial term?

In terms of fashion, what trends do you hate?

I hate: empire-waisted dresses on adults, peep-toe boots (whats the point??) and leggings worn with regular length tops that don't even remotely hide the bum. I also hate most things 80s-inspired.

 Am I the only one who just isn't interested in NYE really? If you're not, what are you up to tonight?

I'm ordering pizza and drinking a couple glasses of wine tonight. The boyfriend and I will probably watch a movie and I'll browse around on ebay. I'll probably stay up until 12 but I've been doing that lately anyway.

ETA: I now see that someone has already asked my new years question a few posts down. Just ignore that then :)

I need to invest in a digital camera for work (radio show), something easy to use, in a reasonable price range and would be good, for example, for taking pictures of guests and uploading to Facebook. Can someone point me in the direction of some good options? Preferably something that connects well with Mac OS.

Recs on good workout videos? I've tried the 30 Day Shred several times and never stuck with it past a week. I like the concept, but would like something new just since I feel a little stale with that one for the moment. Thinking of jumping to Ripped in 30. Any other suggestions? Prefer something under 40 minutes (preferably under 30) that combines cardio and strength.

Should I run out to the store and get ice cream so the hubs and I can have new year's milkshakes? I don't want to...but I do want milkshakes. WWTQCD?
