i know you can do some pretty neat stuff with CMD prompt, and i know my way around it a little bit.
I was kinda looking for some fun/annoying things to do.
for instance, something like, popping open my girl friends cd drive.
just some neato things like that. Any ideas?

At the command prompt, type "Google" without the quotes. (of course)

For making people CD drives open and close http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/multimed/htm/_win32_mci_open.asp
I suggest if you have any programing skills make something take control of a pc for a few mins while you open and close there cd drive and pop a few messages up on there screen. You can fool idiots to download anything.
Heres a basic CD open/close project....http://www.codeproject.com/system/eject_cdrom.asp?df=100&forumid=220009&exp=0&select=1815814

Install VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/)
then on command prompt type
<Path to VLC>\vlc <path to movie/music>
e.g. C:\"program files\VLC\VLC.exe" C:\annyoingbeep.mp3
I don't know if that works on windows but on Linux that will open VLC and play the music/movie file. It opens a full player up however, I wonder if Windows has any entirely command line based media players.
