    Happy Hurricane!

    I may have bought into the hysteria. Is everyone prepared? And yes a hurricane up here in the northeast, even cat 1, is a problem because of how we flood and trees coming down.

    New Tires = Ordeal?

    I swear every time I leave the house something goes wrong in spectacular sitcomy fashion. I finally saved enough to replace my tires. So today I prepared myself to go out into the world (go to Sears auto center at the mall.) When I got there at first it went pretty smoothly. Except the little...

    Nasa Spots Doctor Who-like crack in the Milky Way

    Even though it is Nasa, I decided to post it in the UK forum because the article and Dr. Who originate there. :) So what is this crack? it’s “the core of a thick, sooty cloud large enough to swallow dozens of solar systems and may be harboring beastly stars in the process of forming.” Call...

    BP Oil Spill

    I don't know if anyone has posted about this yet, I did a search but nothing came up. This whole oil spill debacle has been causing me anxiety as current affairs sometimes do. I cannot believe that we can develop technology to go down and drill for oil beneath the floor of the ocean but these...

    Avoid extremely extroverted people?

    A new girl started at work last week. Every once in a while you get a coworker that is extroverted to the point of bad boundaries, she is that coworker. After briefly being introduced she tries to high five me (whilst I'm wearing gloves and using a dirty rag to clean off marker.) When I don't...

    Ever go to a show/concert alone?

    Conan O'Brien tickets just went on sale today without me knowing (was at work.) They are pretty much sold (scalpers and fans I expect.) I'll probably have to go alone or not at all. How do you all feel about going to shows or concerts by yourself? I kind of like to share stuff like that with a...

    So after I got my health insurance I decided to go get blood work done because I had been sitting on an old slip ordering tests for a while. I knew/know little about healthcare policies and such as I was on my parent's into my 20's (26 now.) Anyway they denied the claim saying it was a...

    Inspirational Quote - Conan O'Brien

    For some reason this really got to me when he said this tonight, the last night he was to host the tonight show due to some crappy **** going down at NBC. I can tell by his mannerisms and such that he is a good man. He was close to tearing up as he spoke and I just felt weirdly connected to...

    Where should you go to find friends/relationship?

    The one thing I can't figure out is where exactly are you supposed to go for friends and more than friends. I'm not the bar or club type. No one I work with is suitable or interested. It all seems too random anyway. I thought maybe the internet would be more help seeing as you can focus in on...

    SA ≠ weakness of character.

    This week at my job (I work in a warehouse) we were having our year end inventory. This tends to be a time where everyone relaxes slightly and we all wander around the huge warehouse counting and basically otherwise left to our own devices. I was paired with a guy with an extremely extroverted...
