2. That song from the commercial is stuck in my head...what song is currently stuck in your head?
3. Do you have Tapioca Express where you live? Where do you live? What is your favorite item from their menu?
4. What is your favorite recently released (6 months or less) album? If you don't have one, what is one of your favorite albums that's been released within the last 5 years?
5. When was the last time you actually bought a CD (not a CD-R or CD-RW, but an actual album released by an artist)?
6. What is your favorite Tom Hanks movie?
Were you ever in Girl Scouts? What was your experence like? Did you enjoy it?
If you weren't a Girl Scout (or if you are male), what do you think of when you think "Girl Scout?"
Me, I was a Girl Scout from Daisy (Kindergarden age) all the way up to Senior (12th grade). I loved it (most of the time), and the girls who stayed in my troop with me untill graduation are still some of the best friends I have ever had. Believe me, you really get to know someone when you're huddled under a tarp in the freezing rain with them. *lol* For me, being a Girl Scout will always be about the amazing friends I made, and the great memories I made with them. /end sap
Music in question: Carnival of the Animals- one track from emusic or an album from itunes for 7.99 with Carnival of the Animals and two other pieces.
Also, I think I'm going to be keeping my emusic subscription. They don't have mainstream labels, so I get to expand my tastes again. Any suggestions for lesser known bands that might be on there?
I'm talking about what the father did in The Weatherman or apparently that Morrie did in Tuesday's With Morrie. Where all your friends family and loved ones come while you are still alive and they talk about your life.

2. What personal question have you always wanted to ask someone? Not a specific person, but just a personal question you couldn't normally ask someone.
EDIT: It can be a specific person, but someone you know personally.
Is there a way to find out? Does anybody know of a community that got deleted in the last 2 hours?
2. Do you like Svetlana?
yes! apparently I'm the only one.
If I am looking for photoshoot outtakes...Where do I go?
I know I can go to Corbis and Getty Images...and that I have to pay for them...but where else can I locate photoshoot outtakes?
2. Which day is most likely not to be the busiest day of the week at airport?
Coming from anyone who has a career in airline would be helpful.
3. Speaking of holiday, what are your plans for this long weekend?
Do girls usually develope curves before or after their periods start?
-2"-3" wide black satin ribbon (the soft shiny kind)
-Black thigh high stockings (the cheapo kind with the elastic to hold them up at the top, not the spiffy kind you clip to garters)
I really don't need to drive all over God's green earth just to find that Store XYZ only has wide *white* ribbon and Store ABC only carries control top hose.
I just bought a new firewire/USB/whatever-the-heck-it's-call
It's perfectly intact, I've been keeping it away from the animals so it won't get chewed through. I went to update yesterday morning (and again last night and this morning) and my computer will not detect that the damn thing is plugged in! My iPod is on and charged, so WTF IS GOING ON?
I'm running Windows XP if that helps and my iPod is the old 20gig one without a color screen.
Now, I ask for only your opinion. I can't decide where to put this tattoo:
I've narrowed it down to my left arm, or my left ankle. I have two other tattoos on my back, one in the middle at the bottom and one on my right scapula. I don't want to put it on my left scapula because that'd be too symmetrical for me, and anywhere else on my back would look weird. Hence, the two choices.
As a side note, I'm going to recreate it in photoshop so it looks more like sumi ink as opposed to just lines. So it won't look exactly like that.
( Click to take the poll! )
As a postemptive note to all the trollers, no, I'm not Japanese, nor do I know how to speak their language (though I would love to learn). I'm getting it in kanji because I used to live in Japan for a long time when I was little, and this is where I have the happiest memories of my childhood with my sister. The language is simply symbolic of that time. Stop commenting with nasty replies about how I need to "stick to my own language," please.
What is your favorite stretch of highway?
mine is the few miles of I-70 that wind through the Rocky Mountains in Glenwood Canyon. You are dwarfed by giant mountains and tucked the most scenic of spaces. Plus...it leads to the world's largest hot springs.
Now, my boyfriend didnt ask for them off of his work, and even said that he hopes he works that day. And when she asked him if he had work on that day and said he didnt know, she said I was still invited to go with her.
So my question is:
Should I still go with his mom if he doesnt come too? Is that too weird? I do know the family and I feel comfortable around his cousins and they include me very well, but I'm not sure how it would look, me going without him. (we've been dating a little over a year and a half if that makes a difference.)
Edit: answered. Thank you.
Thanks in advance.
Sites I already frequent: theonion.com, cnn.com, snopes.com, dooce.com, cuteoverload.com, stuffonmycat.com, officepirates.com, ilovebacon.com, gofugyourself.com, kittenwars.com, Carolyn Hax's advice column/chat archives on washingtonpost.com, and of course, livejournal and myspace...
All of those are good ones if you, too, find yourself needing entertainment...but it's not even noon yet and I've been through all the new material...sigh.
There are examples in the article but I can't think of anything funny.
How stupid would that look? Is there anywhere else in the U.S. where people encourage this? Where can I get bags that suit this purpose?
If you do this: How many bags do you keep?
2. Do you paint your fingernails and your toenails to match? Are either one painted right now?
3. What is your preferred method of caffienation?
4. Have you ever seen somebody with a period stain that they seemingly didn't know about?
4b. Have you ever TOLD anybody that they had a period stain that they seemingly didn't know about?
5. Have you ever later discovered that you had a period stain that you didn't know about?
5b. Has anybody ever TOLD you that you had a period stain that you didn't know about?
6. What are you proud of?
And just in case people get pissed off at me trying to unload kittens via LJ, I have question, too!
1. Johnny Depp- to old to be attractive or the sexiest thing you've ever seen?
(I vote: sexiest thing I've ever seen.)

(Ridin' - Chamillionaire ft. Lil Flip)
3. Last movie you watched?
(The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift)
4. Favorite cereal?

5. Has anyone here ever had a bad experience on movie/TV sets? Horror stories from reality shows? Anything we can all snicker at?
(Nope. The one movie set I was on was pretty nice.)
6. What's your hair look like right now? Color/cut? Pix?
(It was originally dark blonde, but I dyed it red. However, it was temporary, so the bottom has faded and the top of my head's hair has very faded remains of red. I bleached my bangs to a strawberry blonde, and the bottom layer of my hair has bleached tips. Sounds really, really, REALLY weird but it doesn't look as messy as it sounds.)
The tampering would in no way hurt the kid. It would just bring down their performance
Would you walk away and let fate take its course, and the possibility your kid will suffer an emotional pitfall full of anguish and tears? Or would you cheat to let your kid pull ahead, with full knowledge that you won't get linked to whatever happens?
Your kid is 7, for all intents and motivations
What is on your travel wish list? (Mine: Faroe Islands; Ireland; Tokelau; Martha's Vineyard; and Prince Edward Island)
What state are you from?
Do you have a penpal (or epal)? What country are they from?
What is your favorite diet soda?
Do you Garage Sale? What is the best purchase you ever made at one?
Are there any GOOD Italian courses online for free? One where you can take tests and quizzes?
Is any one in the flood area?
Anyone know if a piece of electrical equipment designed for 50Hz phase will work using the same voltage with 60Hz phase?
(The particular items in question are a washing machine and refrigerator)
In regards to the kiddie question earlier, let me ask this further question. You're a parent. You're playing some sporting or physical game with them. Do you let them win?
You're playing a board game. Do you let them win?
Is there anyone who can give me a fairly brief, simple breakdown/explanation of the "Israeli/Palestine" conflict, without too much bias?
Not trying to start a debate, just wanted to know the basics.
Why? How long? Why, really?
If you know who McMaster & James is (Rob James is the one who entered the competition), how do you feel about him entering? (Even if you don't know who this artist is, you might have heard them on the radio anyway.)
Do you think artists who have already garnered a bit of fame should be allowed to enter these amateur contests?
When you get a sandwich at Subway, do you always get the same thing?
Do you carry any toys around with you?
I've got a gameboy advance (one of the old big ones) and some bubbles in my bag right now.
Edit: Thanks to everyone for the quick answers, I have what I need. In case this post gets added to the memories, here is the link for a free once a year credit report: https://www.annualcreditreport.com/cra/index.jsp
2. What are some of your guilty pleasures as far as TV goes? What shows will you watch only when you're alone? Have you ever flat out lied about liking a show because you were embaressed of how lame/shallow/trendy/nerdy/stupid it is?
3. Do you have any livejournal interests that none one else has (they would show up as text and not links)? What are they? What is the most unusal interest you have listed? Do you have any interest that are there purely as a joke?

has anyone here seen a commercial that has animated fruits jumping around, then it cuts to a banana who is in the shower wearing a little shower cap, and has his banana peel hanging up next to the tub?? I think it's a juicy juice commercial, I saw it a few weeks ago and haven't seen it since, but the second I saw that banana, it was the funniest thing I had ever seen. Anyone know what I'm talking about???
does anyone know which kind of salmon is better for you and has less mercury, i.e. wild or farmed?
thanks a lot!
bands in general are great, but even better are specific albums or songs.
My mom's going to be watching this, and she's a very sensitive person. She'll probably get all sad and cry and not see that I do feel fucking terrible. She'll claim "oh you only like dad," etc etc What on earth do I do?
Should I lay it flat to dry or tumble dry low?
I've searched 80spurple.com and also azfn.com and neither sites say anything about care for the shirt.
I love Barenaked Ladies, and my S.O. can't stand them. He loves Bruce Springsteen, and I fucking hate him.
Bonus points for a picture!
I think it's the 1998 Chevrolet Metro for me.
It drives like a golf car, doesn't have power windows, or locks, the road noise is SO LOUD.
Not to mention it's a 3-Cylinder automatic.
(if it's too big, i'll take it down.
Is this creepy? Do things in your daily life remind you of tqc? Is there anything that causes you to think of a particular user?
Also, just to keep up with the latest tqc spinoffs... did anyone get tqc_kissass and tqc_love today? ;p
Would your answer change if you were told that it was a hunt or be hunted situation?
Can you tell what I've been watching?
What kind of milk do you drink? (Whole, skim, soy, etc...)
What's your favorite "kiddy" cereal? (The ones sporting a cartoon character on the box or an overdose of sugar on the nutrition panel.)
What's your favorite "grown up" cereal? (The ones more on the healthy side, usually a shade of brown.)
Why did Cookie Crisp change it's character to a wolf? I want to write them a letter. Bring back that pup!
WHY DID TACO BELL TAKE AWAY THE GRILLED STUFFED CHICKEN CEASAR WRAP BURRITO THING?!!!!!
The icons in my systray, my Quick Launch bar, and the windows I current have open are larger than they're supposed to be. They look pixelated because of it and it makes it look really weird.
Anyone know how to get them back to normal size? I've tried options in Accessibility and in Display to no avail.
HELP! (I'm at work)
Thank you malantha for giving me an idea for something to change. FIXED IT! No idea WTF was wrong with it, but changing to Classic Style then back to XP style reset the icons.
( Collapse )
Is your desktop on your computer cluttered with a lot of icons, or is it pretty clutter-free? If your desktop only has a few icons on it, does it bother you when you install new programs and it add the icons to your desktop?
Do you use the quicklaunch toolbar if it's available on your computer? How much do you have on it?
All I really know is that it's two chicks. I'm curious, what are they like? I'm gonna do some looking myself, but I want to know what you think...you can look at my Last.FM profile to get an idea of what I listen to.
Also, along that line, do any of you have memory problems? Can you recommend anything non-prescription you take to improve it?
It's one drive split into two, so maybe something like "Ren & Stimpy" or some other duo like that would be cute.
For added inspiration, my computer is named Chai and my printer is Tea.
EDIT: got it, thanks!
Okay so my SO's microphone doesn't work in the video conversation mode in MSN messenger, so she tried it elsewhere and it works fine to record sounds etc, so I figure it was something with MSN. But when she tries to run through the audio setup wizard in messenger, it will not function at all, and still won't work even with the latest version installed now. What's the deal here? I can hear no sounds on my end whatsoever, despite the fact the mic physically is fine. MSN just doesn't seem to want to recognize the mic for whatever reason.
Any help is appreciated.
Who is it singing on Broken Social Scene's "Passport Radio"?
Thankyou and cheers.
I even reset and it did the same thing. Wha?
Anything I can do, or is it stuck there somehow?
Cinnamon and Lite Orange Mango.
2. What stores do you think play the best music?
I've noticed that craft stores and Macy's play Feist and Jem a lot, which is better than what a lot of stores play.
3. Have you ever been to the Cracker Barrel? Was it any good?
No, but I always see them when I'm on vacation and wonder if they're good. They don't look like they are.
4. When was the last time you went on a picnic?
5. Have you ever been to Ikea? Do you love it?
yes & yes!
1. Help me decide: Should I save money to get a Ragdoll kitten or a Papillon puppy? *Google is your friend!* *PEOPLE, I am NOT going to adopt! (yet)(In any case, breeds like Ragdolls and/or Papillons usually never get put up for adoption!) Get off the topic!*
2. Do you like the movie Ever After?
3.Favorite fictional detective?
4. Dream car?
After the bot spam, I made my IM contact info friends-only. So you are in possession of a very special secret.
In the end I'm sort of aiming toward easily-obtainable stuff.

And do you know the name of that show with the red head kids that live in the light house? I think it's an australian show or a new zealand show or something...
- How old were you when you first started keeping a real journal?
- What year?
(My answers are: 9 years old, and I started keeping a journal in 1994.)
By the way, making "new", recycled cards is out of the question.
Do you drink a specific brand?
All of my friends drink tea, and I've noticed that whilst the casual drinkers will drink almost anything, the more hard-core tea fans are pretty strict about the brand they'll buy, and this usually fall along one side of the Lyon's/Barry's line.
Those on either side of this line are pretty die hard. Myself included. I mean, why would you drink Lyons, when Barry's is freely available? Madness.
Do men with small penises deserve love?
If you answer this your are admitting to be a penis user...so if you pick #2 you are saying you love big dick.
