Scent Memory

A friend of mine just picked up some CK One for giggles, and it took all of us right back to High School when everyone wore it like there was no tomorrow.

What is the one thing that you can smell that will immediately take you back?

I just started a fantastic new job on Wednesday. (Seriously, this is my dream job and I have been waiting for 10 years to get a position like this.) Unfortunately, this morning, I woke up sicker than a dog but I sucked it up and went into work, hoping for the best. When I went to see which attorneys I needed to meet with, they realized how sick I was, moved all of my meetings up and sent me home within 90 minutes. My HR person said that it would be totally fine if I wasn't feeling well Friday and to just let her know first thing in the morning. I came home, slept for about 8 hours and now that I have eaten and done some more research for my new job, I still feel like shit.

Taking into consideration how much as I love this job, and understanding how it looks for someone to only attend their first day of work and then go home/call out sick for the next two days, what would YOU do?

You have to get ready for (sedentary) work at 6:30AM. You look at the clock right now and it's somehow already 3AM. Do you sleep or shrug it off and stay awake?

I'd like to sleep, but I'm worried that I'll sleep through my alarm. If your alarm is not effective and you can't rely on a person to tell you to get up, what else do you do?

If you woke up and received breakfast in bed by complete surprise, what would you like to see on the tray?

What advice would you give to a person who felt like s/he would just be wasting their life on disability, not contributing or producing anything of worth whatsoever, while also feeling the same way if they kept on working?

Moving to a smaller house

We are moving into a smaller house in Februari. Do you have any tips/suggestions/advise on decorating a smaller space? Pics very much appreciated!

What does your favorite place in your house look like? 

Is there any piece of furniture you crave for?

Indie/Alt Music Suggestions

I'm looking to find a song for a wedding video for my friends.  Unfortunately, of the music I know they like, I can't find anything particularly romantic.  They like things like Flogging Molly, Rasputina, Florence and the Machine, Murder By Death, Ha Ha Tonka, The Decemberists, etc.  I don't need something super sappy or about relationships at all, just wedding appropriate!

Any suggestions?

If you've had your wisdom teeth removed, how long did it take you to get back to work/school/life/etc?

I'm getting 4 removed on Tuesday, and they are impacted and according to the nurse it will be a difficult extraction. I start a new internship the next Monday. Would you push it back a day? According to my doctor I SHOULD be okay, but is still giving me warnings. Everyone I know who has had their wisdom teeth removed has said it's been no big deal though and has been fine in a day..

What are some of your favorite LiveJournal communities (besides TQC)?

I want to be more active on LJ, and find communities that aren't completely devoted to fan fiction (since I'm losing interest in that pastime).

Do you write? If so, what do you write? Poetry/short stories/novels/non-fiction/something else? Will you share a snippet or excerpt of your writing with us?

I mostly write poetry although I do some nonfiction and short stories too. I'll post one of my poems in the comments.

The Face on the Milk Carton

Are you a fan of Carolyn B. Cooney's series about Janie Johnson? (First book: The Face on the Milk Carton).

My GF is squeeing and all sorts of happy because she just got hold of the brand new book in the series which isn't even supposed to be on the shelves for another week. Are you going to run out and pester your book dealer to get you a copy of Janie Face to Face? It's the thrilling conclusion to the series, dont-ya-know.

New York

I'm going to be in NYC from next Tuesday until next Sunday. I've done quite a lot of the obvious touristy things on a previous trip - does anyone have any recommendations of things I can't miss out on that are more off the beaten track?

I've got a gig to go to on Wednesday night and Friday night, other than that I'm totally free. Is there anything I should totally do?

Bonus points for veggie/vegan places to eat! Thanks in advance.

This evening, by circumstances beyond your control, you cross an angry obeah lady who curses you.  Tomorrow morning when you wake up, you will wake up with the body of the opposite sex.  You know that the following day you will wake up as you again.  What do you do with your 24 hours in a different body?
