If so, how much older was he/she?
2. when you call someone who doesn't know you, do you spell out your name (if it's not a common name)?
Do you have: Cellulite? Stretch marks? Grey hair? A mustache? Pimples/acne? Anything else about your body that magazines tell you you should despise?
I, unfortunately, have items 1-3 (thank-you-very-much crap genetics!). Granted it's only a stray grey hair every few months and the stretch marks are now only silvery lines (around my boobs: stupid sudden growth spurt!) but I still hate them with a fiery passion!
EDIT: Now doesn't everyone feel so much better about themselves? We've all got something we hate about our bodies!
But what about 'ordinarily' dressed people? The average, everyday, person - do you judge them as having certain musical proclivities, or do you simply not associate them with music at all?
What clothing style/music taste stereotypes do you have?
At first glance, I know I see converse, black hair and tight jeans (or is it baggy jeans now? My fashion knowledge is lacking) and think 'indie', or the guy walking past with baggy everything and a slouched, staggered stride and feel the rap/hip hop vibe. Sure on the second thought I dismiss my assumptions, but they're there. But when I try and pinpoint (or stereotype) say, the bus driver (an ordinary-looking middle-aged guy),or the 40ish woman behind the shop till, or business-people, then I draw a blank.
And really, these questions are really a front for my main one, which has been annoying me for a while, after some people expressed an inordinate amount of surprise during a music-related conversation.

If you could somehow step outside of society's expectations, or the confines of time, or whatever keeps you silent to tell these people what they meant to you...
...what would you say to them?
it can be a movie or a stage musical whichever
i supose it could be a tv show too...?
(if you don't like musicals, that's ok, you just don't need to tell me that 'cause I hear that alot being a theater major)
If that doesn't count as a question or merely annoys some people, what is the most outrageous or offensive question you have ever been asked? What about seen on TQC?
Me, I'm hardly offended by anything, so I can't answer that one.
*With all of the enthusiasm of the replies, if anyone ever needs or wants one, feel free to comment on my journal with route of contact, and it shall be. I love helping people & I enjoy giving readings. :)
I have student loan money, and I'm trying not to spend too much of it, since I still have a nice chunk of money and it has to get me by for a while.
I did my taxes online the other night (did finally get it figured out) and I'm getting $1100 back from state and federal combined. I want to set some of that aside for August rent (I'm paid through July and my lease is up in August), get an iPod (student discount!) and a new digital camera (my old one is really on its last legs).
Well, I got up this morning, and happened to check the Best Buy ad...ALL their digital cameras are on sale, and so is the memory card I'd need for it.
So what do I do?
Also, how much cheaper is it to go to a beauty school to get your hair done? Would they bleach the tips of my hair for me? Any idea how much that would cost (at a beauty school or a salon)?
Corollary: any good "I sprained my fucking ankle and I'm feeling pretty sorry for myself" movies? I have a feeling I'm gonna be spending a lot of time in front of the TV.
What movies coming out are you definitely not seeing? Why?
bbsy adds to this by talking about people who "can't really be your friend unless you show them your claws when they poke you."
I consider both type of people mentioned above as contemptible human beings that I would have nothing to do with. You can't trust somebody like that. Somebody who decides they'd only be your friend if you berate them after them poking at you will stab you in the back sooner or later. It's a given fact. I've dealt with somebody like that before. When they stabbed me in the back and I confronted them, they tried to place the blame all on me when they KNEW that it was unethical behavior. So now I just don't even deal with those people. If somebody wants to be my friend, they treat me with kindness and they don't play idiotic games. I have no time for that kind of bullshit.
Why are they like that?
Why do they brag about being assholes and act like it's a badge of honor?
Why do they pick on others as a test for friendship?
Absolutely none of that behavior makes sense to me.
Do you come from a country where they pay you to donate blood?
If yes, is that the only reason you donate? Would you continue to donate if they stopped paying?
If no, would you ever accept a payment for a blood donation?
In Australia a blood donation is exactly that, a donation: no money exchanges hands (although they will give you a cup of tea and some biscuits). I find the idea of being paid for my blood a little bit creepy. To me, getting paid for what naturally grows in your body makes a charitable act a business transaction. What are your thoughts?
The episode is 301 (first episode of season 3).
Does anyone know of a way I can get a copy of this episode?
I'm sure many of you know that this is much easier said than done... So do you have any thoughts/advice/experience about how to keep your cool while waiting for them to say something?
I mean stuff daily stuff like: dishes in the sink instead of in the dishwasher, having drawers/cabinets open, no cap on the toothpaste, etc.

For those of you in a sorority/fraternity, what were your main reasons for wanting to join (if you had any)?
For those of you who are not members of a sorority/fraternity, did you have certain reasons for not wanting to rush or be part of the Greek system?
For those of you who deactivated before graduating, why did you do so?
Please be tactful in your responses; I don't wanna start no drama. I am genuinely curious to people's views on this sort of thing.
Can anyone give me a simple explanation as to why some types of paper are more absorbent than others? Is it anything to do with the length of the fibres?
2. If you went to College/University -- how much did your education cost?
3. If you could live anywhere NOT in your current or native country -- where would it be?
4. South Park -- Cartman or Butters?
i was thinking of uploading a pp-if it's possible..
1. What is your favorite highway?
Mine: CA-1 - see icon :)
2. What do you call a multi-lane, divided, high speed (55+ mph) roadway with onramps & offramps where you live? They are called freeways here in California, but when I go to Illinois (grandparents) I have to remember to call them expressways or tollways, or people get confused.
3. What is the speed limit on interstates where you live? It's 65 or 70 in California.
4. What states & countries have you personally driven in?
I've driven in California and Illinois.
2. Best concert you've ever been to?
3. Do you know what Three Mile Island is, and where it's at without googling it?
4. How does one go about getting a job as a roadie for a band? Or even as just a techie in a rock concert hall kind of place? I absulotely love the whole process of setting up and taking down the stage and tuning guitars and stuff and, of course, getting to hear music nearly every night. I'd love to be a part of it.

Thanks for any help, this is kind of vague I know.
My favorites are the little black one with the purple collar and the brown and white one that looks like my dog when he was a puppy.
-I'm a girl (I'm sure that could be inferred).
-My hair is just above my shoulders.
-My hair has been color treated.
-My hair is an absolute coarse and curly mess if I don't do anything to it.
-I use "Smooth Down" on my hair (it's hair products only available in a salon).
-I usually straighten my hair right after I wash it, and my flat-iron works really well, but it takes about an hour to straighten all of my hair because it's INCREDIBLY thick.
I think that's all that I can think of that might be important to know.
Thanks for anyone's help!!
Feel free to use this as a post to talk about the Superbowl :) I don't mind, and its better than having 0283048324 posts over the Superbowl.
Do you know how to dance?
I've always built my computers from bare components but I've been out of the loop for a while and not sure whats good, whats not, whats compatable with what older technology.
Just curious if anyone knew of any good places to research. Most places I've come across are either too detailed (benchmarking of a specific item) or trying to sell me something (and thus bias).
When you're first starting on a game and you're using standard scoring, if you don't get more than at least 100 points do you reshuffle?
I do. Lost points! I am a quitter.
what SHOULD you be doing?
2) How does a needy person forge a stronger bond to another needy person instead of someone who is actively helping them A LOT? http://ethernetbunny.livejournal.com/672791.html
3) What do you think of this theory?
They say that a relationship is unlike addition. Rather, it is like multiplication:
1/2 a person X 1/2 a person = 1/4 a relationship;
even 1 person X 1/2 a person = 1/2 a relationship;
There is no winning, unless:
1 person X 1 person = 1 relationship.
Somehow, the fractious seek one another out.
4) Funny women don't impress men? http://ethernetbunny.livejournal.com/674394.html
5) Were you taunted as a child? What kind of taunting? How did you cope?
6) Are you watching the Super Bowl or are you a football widow? I'm the latter.
1. Which celebrities have aged well?
2. Which celebrities have not aged well?
3. Which celebrities need to start dressing their age?
4. Which celebrities have the best style?
Other than the painstaking task of highlighting all the lowercases and shrinking the size of the font, is there a specific way to type like this? Thanks!
a while back, maybe 2 years ago i typed in UGLY or SCARY in google images. and i found a picture of this scary guy, who i believe was a nazi. he had awful red eyes. and the website address had something to do with a college. if anyone saw this or knows where it is please help me.
Poll for the guys, or girls going on what guys have said:
How do you feel about redheads?
(a) I find them unattractive
(b) It doesn't matter
(c) I find them especially attractive
yeah, kind of a stupid question, but this will settle a debate with a friend.
What is the best deal you've gotten in the last week?
And, finally, if anyone's ever tried Sun In and/or Touch of Sun how did you like it?
It's going to be mnemonic device, and the test is tomorrow, so make it good, and I'll love you forever!
I was born one day before, my sister was born two weeks after.
Apparently I've sprained a muscle in my right-hand thumb. If you look at this image, I believe it's the one in blue. Stolen from http://www.eatonhand.com , sorry! ( Collapse )
Q:Is there anything I can do, aside from applying heat, to help the healing process move along smoothly? Not necessarily make it quicker (although that would be smashing), but also some activities I should NOT do with it? Maybe some warm-up motions to strengthen the muscle and make it less likely to pull/sprain again?
The WONDERFUL thing about this is: I'm an artist. I was in the middle of a very important project when this happened. Q:Do you suppose if I work in very short spurts every day or so, it would be ok, or could I cause permanent damage? Won't it atrophy/heal too stiff if I don't use it a little?
Of course I'm also going to consult my doctor on that last one. Her attitude so far is "no big deal," which I'm hoping is a good sign since she semms to know exactly what she's talking about....
To make this post not completley useless to those who don't care about my personal life (which to be fair is probably most of you) a question. Probably been done before but...
What is the best Valentines day present you've got?
How old were you when you recieved/gave your first Valentines day present?
Have you ever given something to someone and not got anything in return. Details...?
the same scene I cannot seem to be mean to her. (demetrius-helena-midsummer nights' dream)
I think it's due to the fact that I am attracted to sweet pixie chicks.
and the character is a type of one.
The actress seems to have this white like vibe about her, I can't figure out what it is. that's what it seems like. like a block of some kind.
if I ignore that feeling, I get attracted to her sexuality and I am supposed to be annoyed with her to the point of threatening death. (think of isla fisher from wedding crashers and I'm -I think- Vince Vaughan)
any ideas on how to overcome this?
In particular, anyone have recommendations for a well laid out version of Liszt's Liebestraum? (I'm also looking for a good anthology.)
how much did it cost?
how much did it hurt?
EDIT: Specifically, as a curse.
Do you tend to prefer the company of men/women?
What sex is the majority of your friends?
Do you get along with one sex better?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
(usually I don't care, but I'm waiting for Grey's Anatomy!)
Anyway, yes, comment and such, and thanks so much!
And I don't mean celebrating it on a different day from February 14th or being unable to see them for this 'holiday'. No stupid dinners with candles, expensive cards, presents or anything else connected to Valentine's Day. Nada.
I'm not celebrating it with my SO and we're both happy with that. However, my SO did say if his friends ask what we're doing for Valentine's Day and he replies "Nothing" all his friends are going to think our relationship is on the rocks. (It's not BTW, it's still going well)
Could you recommend a good shampoo and conditioner for this for me? Please? I've used some Bed Head products and I like their stuff, but I don't want to spend a lot of money on something and have it be no good. I'm not against salon type brands and such, as long as they work.
2) If your boyfriend tried to make you choose between him and your best friend, what would you do?
3) For the girls - do you buy magazines that are mainly aimed at men? Why?
( Collapse )
Are, or were, you a...
Do you knit?
Do you crochet?
I can think of two....so beware, if you don't want romantic comedies spoiled for you, don't look behind the cut because it's gonna be ( Collapse )
There's also this Keg commercial where this couple goes out to eat, they have a shrimp cocktail and stuff, and I'm trying to place the song in the background. It's kind of a syncopated tango. First off, what's the song? and secondly, where the heck do I recognize the song from?
I just finished writing a paper and now I want to double space it, but I can't figure out where to go to format it. I went to the format tab at the tob of the screen but line spacing isn't an option.
I don't want to go through and manually putting a line between each line.. such a hassle..
Anybody have Word Perfect & know what I'm talking about and/or know how to help?
Thanks in advance.
