The first week of my freshman year in college, I walked into the bathroom to see a girl passed out on the floor surrounded by vomit. She turned out to have a bad case of alcohol poisoning and had to be hospitalized. Alcoholism runs in my family - my mom, both grandfathers, and other distant relatives have all struggled with it - but it was never so immediate as this. I've never had the desire to drink or do drugs, but it made me take other people's binge drinking more seriously.

"Mommy idea of heaven is biiiiiig buffet where you never get full and you never get fat. "
Table for two!

[Error: unknown template qotd] I'd buy out their clearance section and a couple more dresses to fill my closet.

For some reason, the number in the question has changed. If it was $1,000, I'd probably keep it all for me.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Well, I'm old, so just about everything they do is amazing. I was six or seven when my stepdad brought home a computer - one that was about the size of a present day tower and the keyboard was attached by a phone cord and folded up into the box itself. The screen was maybe 5x5. You had to know BASIC to get it to do anything. And now the only people who have to learn programming language are software developers, programmers, and the like.

I think the possibilities will be endless. We're already moving towards having your computer being your sole source of communication and entertainment. I think one day everything in your house will be networked - from your appliances to the a/c to the lights. I'd love to be able to map out a trip and upload it to my car that will be able to drive itself.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I had a few. Mostly social studies and English teachers. Laundy was amazing - he looked just like the Grinch and would tell rude stories to keep us paying attention. Fairweather was gruff and no nonsense, but I loved his sense of humor when it showed. Mr. Atzenhofer said the same thing every morning, "lips, notes, NOW," which meant "stfu and get to work!" When we took quizzes, he'd open with, "eyes wander, first time letter grade, second time fry. Lips flap, first time letter grade, second time fry." He died suddenly of cancer my senior year of high school. It broke my heart.

[Error: unknown template qotd]To paraphrase Tom Hanks:

"There's no vampires in baseball!"

I hope whoever's in charge of Writer's Block is amused by the reactions this is getting. I know I am.

[Error: unknown template qotd]This question implies that you're ashamed of your "childish pleasures." I'm not ashamed of watching cartoons, liking to spin around in circles until I get dizzy, licking the bowl after I've made a cake, reading kids' books or anything like that.

I guess I thought I'd like housecleaning better. Most of the grownups I knew as a kid seemed to like it a lot.

[Error: unknown template qotd]It's a tossup. Either the Jackson 5's ABC or The Way You Make Me Feel.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Honestly, the burden of this lies on us to learn from this and do our best to change our ways. As for the government, I say they need to prosecute the heck out of the people who embezzled billions of dollars and who came up with the illegal practices that went on in the mortgage industry and hedge funds.

And then they can get on legislation that makes it easier for people to get an education, keep their job, care for their health, and have the paid time to take a vacation, care for a newborn, or focus on making themselves well when they're ill.

[Error: unknown template qotd]No, I'm not worried. The case in Orlando wasn't swine flu, so there isn't anything near here. I've got one kid in day care and one in school, so we deal with germs and illness constantly. I figure by the time it gets here - if ever - our immune systems will be ironclad. :D

[Error: unknown template qotd]Well, it's actually Bren's earworm, but what the heck?

[Error: unknown template qotd]I'm in with the rest of my friends' list. This question is idiotic.

But if I must answer, in this country, heterosexual Judeo Christian wealthy able bodied white men have the easiest daily life.

[Error: unknown template qotd]It used to be Scar Tissue by The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Now it's this:

or this:

I know, I'm a loser.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I've become so much more responsible with money than I was 4 or 5 years ago. I stopped taking out payday loans and haven't bounced a check in over 4 years. We're still living paycheck to paycheck, but I'm working on that. Damn you, my family's tv addiction!

[Error: unknown template qotd]This doesn't really apply to me right now since I work from home, but when I do go into the office, I strip the second I get back home and get into a tank top or a t-shirt and pajama pants.. I like being comfy. :)

Ugh. It is so naptime. The worst part about taking a nap on your lunchbreak is that you have a time limit. :P

Scratch that, it's vaccuum time, do some more dishes time, and then naptime.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Gibbs. Or Sam Vimes from Discworld. Actually, I think they may be alternate universe versions of each other. Either way, I'd be safe and surrounded by people that I like, for the most part.  :D

[Error: unknown template qotd]There aren't too many ways in which I'm NOT a better person than I was ten years ago. I was 23.

I got out of a horrible relationship, I'm more responsible - including fiscally, I've worked for the same company for over 6 years - and moved up, I care way more about other people than myself, I have much better relationships with my parents...

I weigh about 40 lb more than I did 10 years ago. Which is weird, because I've been about this weight since 2000.

[Error: unknown template qotd]When I was a kid, we didn't have cable or go to the movies and I wasn't ever allowed to stay up past 7, except for one occasion - the yearly showing of the Wizard of Oz. I didn't see the Neverending Story, The Labyrinth, Star Wars, or the Princess Bride until I was in middle school, so they don't really count. (I got to stay up till 8 when I turned 11, and 9 when I turned 16. Yay, childhood!) And I was a teenager when all the new generation Disney movies (Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, the Lion King, etc) came out, so I can't use those, either.

It's still up there in my top 10.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Avoiding unpleasant things. I'm really bad about being lazy and avoiding the unpleasant tasks that need to be done. I'm going to try to take on a few unpleasant tasks a day without complaining - doing the dishes, the litterbox, cleaning the bathroom, etc. I can't start going to the gym right now because I'm sick, but once I'm better, I'm going to start walking, too.
