My local friends and I all currently live at home pending upcoming successes (one is apartment hunting, one is job-hunting, and I'm saving up for the wedding).

I'm looking for recommendations of inexpensive things to do at night that don't involve hanging out with or waking up the parents. Beer and greasy food only go so far.

B: So I think soldiers are actually the world’s oldest profession.
Me: Older than hookers?
B: No, you’re right. The soldiers were fighting over the hookers.
Me: Yeah, that’s what I thought.
B: Which led to the third-oldest profession.
Me: Exactly.
B: Spies.
Me: …Oh. I was going to say litigators.

OK, I know what they actually mean, but every time I see headlines that read, "Tiger victim was intoxicated..." etc, my first thought is, "When did Tiger Woods attack a kid?!"

You have a lot of energy in the mornings. I never did. I would have slept on the bus every morning when I was your age, except for the fact that I was scared to death my schoolmates would do something to me (this was not an unreasonable fear). But you have energy. That's good. And you have friends to talk to. That's good, too. Yes, people are trying to sleep, but the train is a public place, and I've been guilty of having intense conversations on the bus or train myself. I can block out normal conversation; that's what iPods are for.

But really, is it necessary that your conversation be heard from the next train car over? You and your friends all sit together, so your admirable ability to project is being wasted. If you were sitting behind me, I wouldn't think a thing about hearing the details of your life, but from a car away, I find it a tad excessive. Please consider your audience. Thank you.

When I was in fourth grade, we had to watch D.A.R.E. videos. In one, a girl got into drugs, dropped out of school, got a job as a waitress, and was fired for her partying ways. Pretty standard stuff. At the end of the video, she had locked herself in the ladies room and the audio showed loud sniffing. I, being disgustingly naive, assumed she was just crying. Everyone else knew that this meant she was snorting something elicit.

Since then, I've always been afraid to cry in a public bathroom. If I could mistake snorting for sniffling, someone else might mistake my sniffling for snorting.

Were you ever traumatized by a PSA?

A question for my fellow carnivores: say, for whatever reason, you could only eat meat once a month. It's not for health or ethical reasons, it's just a matter of circumstances. now, all around you, people eat hamburgers, hot dogs, bologna sandwiches, chicken fingers -- ordinary, everyday foods. Nothing special about them, but it's meat, and you can't have it, and they don't have to sacrifice anything special to get it.

Now, when your monthly feast comes around, would you be satisfied with a hamburger, assuming it was a good, quality hamburger? Or would you decide, "I gave up meat for a month, it's going to be another month before I have meat again, I deserve filet!" Because on the one hand, decent meat is far better than no meat at all -- but on the other hand, sacrifice deserves reward. Thoughts?

So, it's just about time to start plotting for NaNoWriMo. Now, I'm not even 100% sure I'm going to do it, but if I do, here are my ideas. Yes, they are fairly stupid. I'll be screening my comments, so please vote for which one you like best:

1) A zombie, a ghost, a vampire, and a werewolf walk into a bar. Well, technically, it's a trendy restaurant, and the vampire owns it.
2) He's an outlaw bounty hunter. She's a priestess midwife. THEY FIGHT CRIME!
3) Same guy from #3, now gone legit, wanders the land trying to find the new rebel-general-turned-usurper-king a wife.
4) The good humans of New Jersey are finally free, and the young freedom fighter tracks down his family, only to find out hid baby sister has a disturbingly healthy relationship with the kid brother of a high-ranking alien invader.
5) They're a typical family: Mom's one of the few fertile females still alive, Dad is a prominent leader in the community, and Our Hero is an artist by day and concubine by night.

...and if any pop psychoanalysis springs to mind, feel free.

I love my ring, and I wanted to do something equally amazing for him. We looked at rings, but he couldn't get excited about that. He suggested a watch, but I got him a watch for our first anniversary -- besides, a really nice watch doesn't so much say, "Hey, I'm spoken for," so much as it says, "I'm rich, hit on me." But any other ideas either of us came up with seemed way too impermanent.

So what awesome engagement-ring-equivalents-for-men have you heard of?
