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:

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)

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 -

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.
