|Answer for question 4256.
Did you ever have a terrible roommate? What did they do that bothered you so much?
I was in another city for a few weeks go I went into a short term house share
Anyway, the guy who's name was on the lease used to play loud music, one time we were sitting listening to music he goes 'I love this song' and reached over and cranked it up so high that I flinched sideways from the noise.
Another time I couldn't sleep because he was playing his guitar badly (more like strumming the same note over and over again), wailing with the 'music' and stamping his foot on the floor in time with the music into the wee small hours. When I finally yelled at him to go to bed he said 'Listen you freaking freak'
I later found out from a former roommate that he had lost a lot of roomies due to the loud music

Join us in standing up for reproductive health and education. Planned Parenthood, the organization that delivers reproductive health care, sex education and information to millions of people worldwide, has come under fire in the U.S. lately, with many politicians on both state and federal level seeking to end funding (and in a few cases succeeding).
During the month of May, you can send a specially designed Planned Parenthood vgift to your friends to help support this cause. (And if you need someone to send it to, frank
is always happy to receive gifts!) There are three variations ($1, $5 and $10) for you to choose from, but they'd all look good on your profile when your friends know that you stand by something so important.
Thank you all for your help in our support for Planned Parenthood. This promotion ends June 1, 2012; LiveJournal is not affiliated with Parent Parenthood. For more information about Planned Parenthood, please visit: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

|Writer's Block: Family planning
If you wanted to have children and had trouble conceiving, would you be more likely to consider IVF, surrogacy, or adoption, and why?
I'd either adopt or forego raising children altogether.
I would not go down the IVF route as I feel being infertile is nature's way of telling me bearing children is not for me.
Anyway, not being able to conceive doesn't = OMG, have to immediately engage in IVF treatment. Sometimes a simple lifestyle change, reduction in stress, etc, can be enough (acupuncture has worked for a few of my acquaintances)

|Writer's Block: Be true to your school
How do you feel about public versus private schooling?
I would have preferred to go to private school, the knackers who made my life hell in state school wouldn't have been able to afford to go and crazy arse teachers like a certain freak Irish teacher wouldn't have been tolerated. (Seriously the old biddy told a class that she didn't come in the day before because her mother had died. The next day she was seen with her "dead" mother in the car beside her)

|Writer's Block: Paint the town green
Do you plan on celebrating St. Patrick's Day? If so, how? What memories and feelings do you associate with this holiday?
I brought a snake to the Atlone St Patrick's day parade, he's a striped cornsnake named Hebi, he was popular with the kids

|More baby snakes!
Ever since 2006 I have bred baby cornsnakes.
This is Wyrm's third breeding season (I have two of her 2007 babies and one of her 2008 babies)
It's also the first year I haven't had babies from Jool (she died of egg-binding last year after passing half of her clutch)
I'll probably post pics of the babies (pics of one of Jool's 2006 babies and Wyrm's whole 2008 litter are already there along with a pic of my boa) over at my DA account - http://pkbitchgirl.deviantart.com
Oh and about two or three days before the current crop of babies hatched, Wyrm dropped her second clutch of the season so hopefully I'll have more babies later in the year.

|Writer's Block: Heavenly Bodies
If you discovered a new planet, what would you name it?
Then all the Aspies who want to set up their own community away from the mean 'ol NTs who don't understand their suffering can go live there and leave the sane Aspies in peace

|Writer's Block: AKA
What's the story behind your username?
I was in the Farscape fandom and after the ep PK Tech Girl quite a few fans were naming themselves PK This and PK That. I decided to go for PKBitchGirl because its just one word difference from the original ep title
|Writer's Block: Deal or No Deal
What's on your list of dealbreakers when it comes to romantic relationships?
He wants children, he'll either have to accept the fact that he's getting no kids from me or he can GTFO. And no I'm not going to change my mind for that special person and no, I'm not going to change my mind because I'm a woman and deep down all any woman wants to do is shit out a widdle baybee
He's really into sports, well soccer to be precise. I hate soccer with a passion, I won't even watch if Ireland is playing in the World Cup.
He's a smoker, I had a really bad cough for nearly two months when i was around 16 due to going to a funeral where seven people were smoking in the bar, it really put me off and stinky ciggie breath is foulness personified

|Oh Noes a Disabled Person!
The BBC hired a disabled presenter to present two of its programmes on CBeebies, prompting a flurry of complaints that a one-armed presenter might give children nightmares. One father said he was considering going as far as banning his daughter from watching the programme for fear it would give her nightmares.
Hmmmm, way to promote tolerance here. Tolerance begins at home, instead of whinging and bitching and wringing their hands the parents should be using this to explain that there are disabled people in the world and there is nothing wrong with being disabled.
At least the Daily Fail commenters get it right this time, only five of the posts which got a thumbing down are against the hiring of Ms. Burnell, around 90% of the comments are in support of her.
I've never seen the programmes in question, but I would never dislike a presenter because of their disability. I only dislike presenters because of their personality or attitude, it's a shame more people didn't think the samehttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1152466/One-armed-presenter-scaring-children-parents-tell-BBC.html

|Writer's Block: Bird by Bird
It's National Bird Day
in the U.S. Do you think it's cruel to keep birds in cage where they can't fly freely or flock with others of their kind?
It could potentially be cruel if they're locked in their cage 24/7
We have a cockatiel and the door of her cage is open 24/7 so she spends most of her time sitting on her cage, she also likes exploring the floor
We had one bird, a lineolated parakeet who actively DISLIKED leaving his/her cage. Upon removal it would fly straight back to its cage and hop inside.

|Writer's Block: Set Sail
Repton/Starling from Storm Hawks. Seriously who could turn down hawt sexy lizard action?
Spike and Angel, President Roslin and Gaius Baltar, Harry and Hermione—shippers often find pairings that the original author might have overlooked. What coupling of fictional characters would you most like to see?

|Creepy Guy tries to pick me up
This weird guy approached me on the street and tried to pick me up. He was Indian or Pakistani, I think he might have worked in the restaurant down the street (where we got prawns that were gone off when we ate there a few months ago).
He started by asking me if I was studying at the University, I said I was. He asked me if I had a job and told me that he could get me one. I’d like to point out that he was bald, middle-aged, was missing quite a few teeth from the middle of his mouth and was also smoking whilst he talked
Asked me if I had a boyfriend, ‘oh oh’ I thought. So I lied and told him I had a BF. He then asked me how many nights a week I saw my (non-existent) BF, seriously WTF?
He then wanted my phone number, I told him my phone was Irish, the credit was running out and I would be changing my phone anyway. He offered to buy me a new one, Jeezus ****ing Christ, couldn’t he take a hint?
I made my excuses to leave and then went around the corner and went to the Spar shop there because he had stopped me outside my door and I didn’t want to go straight back to my flat because I didn’t want him knowing where I lived.

|Baybeez! (Snakes that is)
I went in to the Reptile Haven on Thursday (they were looking after Jool's eggs for me) and the eggs had slits in them and you could see the pattern of the little snakes inside them. One egg had completely collapsed so I asked about it, turns out two of the babies were already completely out and were in a little box together. Only a day old, so cute!
I'm going to upload some pics from my camera phone to my father's laptop because my laptop won't take the sony memory stick anymore for some reason (busted software or some such) and then upload it to photobucket and then to my livejournal.
The babies' mother, Jool, is dead. She laid eight eggs, had five still inside her that she couldn't pass. She laid when we were on holiday, she was in the Reptile Haven and they were too short-staffed to get her to a vet. After I came home we arranged a vet visit for her. She had three vet visits in total and the last vet visit she was admitted into the veterinary clinic (the vet in question is the vet for Dublin Zoo) but she died overnight. She was my first snake too, had her since she was about 2-3 mths old
So, these babies are extra special, I'll be keeping one or two of them (the ones that look most like mum)

|Need a job
I need a job. I need €€€€€€€€€€€€€€€
I'm going to Vancouver in August and I have enough money for flight and accomodation, but I need C$$$$$$$$$$$$ for food, convention add-ons, autographs, photos with, sightseeing
The convention is GateCon by the way, I may get to meet Jack O'Neil (I'll certainly see him on stage). GC has gotten the one guest that would never do Creation in a billion years (take that Creation!), eh not that RDA will ever end up living a billion years, if he did he could end up looking like the FAce of Bo on Doc Who.
So, what to do in Van? Sightseeing of course, but what to sightsee? White water rafting would be nice to do... maybe visit the aquarium again to seeing the new baby Beluga
Oh, and of course I'm going to have some fries and gravy...

|I hate flies
Well, to be more precise, bluebottles, and do be even more precise, that ****ing noisy buzz they make as they fly around, there's one buzzing around even as I type.
If there ever was a species that deserved to go extinct, bluebottles are it (them and skangers)
I sometimes catch them live and throw them in with my turtle

|I've been hacked again
Ugh, I've received another email from eBay stating that my password has been compromised. Meaning that I'll have to change my password yet again.
This is the second time this year that this has happened and my PayPal account was hacked last year too.
I wonder how long it will be before my livejournal account is hacked?
