IF a thread is waiting on an object, and some other threads call the thread's methods, do the method calls get queued up and invoked when the thread is notified?

methods. A method always runs on the Thread that calls it -- although sometimes, the calling thread has to wait for the privilege.
If a Thread is waiting on an object, that actually has no effect at all on any other threads that call any of that same object's methods.
