Ugh so my period is impending and my face decided to break out. I have, like, six huge red gross zits. My skin is pretty clear except for right before my period... and I really want these to go away because I'm seeing my boyfriend this friday.
Is there anything I can do to shrink these? I'd prefer to not do anything very drying, because my face is already so damn dry it peels constantly.
I hate my skin. I'm too old for zits (hah).
What's the day that websites like orbitz post their flights and the odds of getting a lower price are higher?
How far into a relationship would one normally have the parents introduced to each other?
A month into it? Three? When the couple decides they're serious? At the wedding?
Ever take a dookie so bad that your nose is nearly touching the ground as you're hunching over on the toilet?
Did you ask God to save your life at that very moment or did you feel like you deserved it?
why is it that so many people buy beige/taupe/champagne colored cars?
are there people that honestly think these are attractive colors?
what do you think about people who choose these colors?
would you buy/have you bought a car in this color?
what color is your car? did you choose it?
Are there any guy names that start with "K-A-T"? I fear I'm losing a bet and I have no idea how to google this...
so i've now found myself in a weird situation where i have to help plan a bachelorette party for someone i've never met. the party is on a thursday night (work night) so we don't want to stay out/up too late. also she's pregnant so drinking is out. also she asked us not to hire a stripper. she doesn't have any friends so everyone coming are people that have barely met her. and we don't have a lot of money to spend on the event.
any suggestions for what we should do or games we can play? every bachelorette party i've ever been to involved large amounts of alcohol so i'm kind of lost here.

Have you ever been hypnotised or hypnotised someone?
Do you think it's real or is it staged?
I'm a bit of a skeptic, someone would have to hypnotise me for me to believe it's real.
What are your thoughts on living together before marriage?
1) You're friends with a scientist, who masters the science of time travel. Amazing, huh? He asks you to volunteer to be his first subject, and walks you through the procedure numerous times so you're confident in the device. The first jaunt will be for only 5 minutes. He picks the year 1836 because he's a scholar who's fascinated by Roosevelt and wanted to know a few questions about his election and hope that you can find out facts. He sets the dial, and you travel through time.
Something goes wrong, and you wind up in the year 1936. Germany. You're in a room full of guns and ammunition. In the next room, you hear someone shouting loudly in German. Curious, you peek through the cracks. It's Adolf Hitler! 1936 would be about 2 years before the holocaust. You check your teleportation watch (which you were given, to alert you to how much time you have left), and there's now 2 minutes remaining before you're recalled back to 2006. You peek into the room again. He's alone at his desk, writing something on a ledger.
What do you do?
2) Same scenario as in the first paragraph, except this time, you're sent to the Garden of Eden. Let's say, for all intents and purposes, it's all real! Biblical narrative, crazy as it is, is factual! You arrive and see a talking snake luring a naked woman to a tree and urging her to pluck a fruit. Obviously the Tree of Knowledge. Behind her, is the Tree of Life. She's close to reaching up. If this was true, then Eden was the most perfect utopia ever known to a human, and misery, death and suffering will never be known. Everything is provided here. This was probably the only time mankind was innocent. You have 4 minutes.
What do you do?
3)Same scenario, except this time, you're sent back to the house/apartment you lived when you were 3. In one room, there's you, age 3, playing. In the other room, your mom/dad/both are on the couch, watching tv. You can say anything to one or both of them. You have 5 minutes.
What do you do to help your community or other people?
Do you think you are fulfilled by your life?
Would you rather make 150K a year and not do anything to help others, or make substantially less (but enough to live on), live somewhat frugally, but know that you enrich the lives of others?
Do you visit haunted house attractions in your area?
What is a band/singer that you love that no one else you know has heard of?
Would you rather date a member of the opposite sex who has bad skin and is really overweight, but treats you amazingly well and has great bedroom skills (despite their physical appearance), or someone who is really, really, REALLY hot, but treats you like shit?
For my b'day in June, my sis got me my very own website. She paid up for a year. The problem is, that I just don't have a clue what to do with it. I know this sounds lame and probably shows a total lack of imagination, but it's been months now and I still don't know what to do.
So, what would you do if you were given your very own website?
What are good movies to watch after a break up?
Humm.. i need some animals who's name sounds like kangaroo (it has to have the ooo sound at the end)
Are there any novels about people who take cross-country trips, besides On The Road by Kerouac?
What would be the title of a movie about your life?
I used to keep my greeting cards by gluing them to construction paper. Don't ask me why I thought my mom's method was the best ever for doing this. I've been looking for an alternate method, and my friend Jeremy inspired me over the weekend: he said he kept his in a filing cabinet. Not having the funds to get a filing cabinet, I got a huge storage box instead.
Is there any way I can get the construction paper off the backs of the cards after peeling them off the paper? Or am I out of luck?
Recently, my weight has gone up by five pounds between the last time I weighed myself when I haven't eaten, or losing five pounds even though I'd eaten in that time period (with no other "obvious changes in weight", hint hint. No, I'm not that obsessed with my weight, but the novelty of actually having a scale in my bathroom hasn't yet worn off.) In any case...
Can a person's weight change that much just from respiration?
When you see mushrooms growing outside, do you want to kick them over? If you do, do you usually kick them over?
Yes, and not usually. I hope I'm not alone on wanting to kick them.
what's your favorite site for music reviews?
I'm really, really hungry, and money is a little tight. (Don't judge me.. haha.)
If you only had about $6.50 to get yourself dinner with, where would you go/what would you get?
1) if you saw a homeless man on the street with rags on and a sign that said need food but he was physically fit and looked healthy enough, would you give him food?
2) for those of you who are in/have been through college...say you are a junior in high school and go to a very well known school with a great reputation, do a fair amount of extra stuff outside of school, have a lot of community service, and get okay grades except for Cs in a few classes...what kind of colleges would you be able to get into? any? just state schools? private schools out of state? how good/bad would this type of person look to college? say, for example, with this, could you get into boston university?
Their website is crazy. Does anyone know, offhand, how much it costs to go to the U of M twin cities for a year? (not including dorms, just tuition).
I'm going to call later but I'm really struggling with a decision between two schools right now and a number would be helpful :D
How do you write your numbers?
For an 8- do you draw one circle on top of another, or do you make it all in one motion?
For a 7- line through the middle, or no line?
For a 1- do you write it like the computer typed it, or do you just draw a line?
Other numbers? Weird ways you write them, etc?
I work at an accounting firm and see many different ways of writing numbers, so I'm curious.
Do you think it's easier to be sad or to be angry?
Are you more often sad or angry?
Would you describe yourself as sarcastic? What about your friends and family?
Are you the same religion as your parents?
I just got a job. I'll be going to work on Monday for the first time in 3 1/2 years. The joys of being a stay at home mom. Have any of you ever gone back to work after taking years off? I'll be working doing customer service work in a call center so I won't be on my feet all day, but I'm still mildly concerned about how it's going to affect me. Do you guys have any advice? What do you do to relax after a hard day at work?
Have you ever started laughing but within seconds started crying (with joy) instead?
What was the cause?
my friends and i are having a pot luck this saturday. one of my friends suggested i make/bring a chicken dish of some kind. what should i make/buy?
please note: nothing with shellfish or red meat. or pork, if you're into that whole 'other white meat' business
In your opinion is stealing ever okay?
Have you ever stolen or shoplifted anything?
shoplifting is stealing, but stealing not necessarily shoplifting. For example if you pocket a pack of gum at Walmart, that is shoplifting, if you take $20 from someone's purse or wallet, without permission, that is stealing.
UM. Where the fuck are my MySpace picture comments????
Are yours missing too? (Of course if you don't HAVE a MySpace, then I suppose they're right where they belong... =P)
Oh, never mind, they're there, all my pictures just say I have zero comments. Fucking MySpace.
So I like changing my MSN sounds.
The old sounds were:
new mail - a guy going 'Oooooh' like he's intrigued
message - the yahoo message sound
contact - a girl screaming
I just changed the new mail sound to what it sounds like when Yoshi says 'Yoshi' (ha) and when someone messages me it sounds like when he sticks his tongue out.
Now I want to change the sound when people sign in to when Gary from Spongbob says 'Maow'.
I can't seem to find it. Can someone help me find the .wav of this?
Do you change the sounds of your instant messengers?
I went to a fast food restaurant today. I went through the drive-thru and I handed the girl a ten for a five dollar total. She handed me my change and I stuffed it in my wallet. I didn't notice until I got home that she had given me a twenty instead of a five for change.
What should I do? I don't want her to get fired or anything but the place is far away so I can't go back there now. Should I call the manager?
EDIT:: Well guys, I called the manager. She asked who the employee was. I asked her what they do in situations like this and she said well, if you want to bring it back you can or otherwise she'll face disciplinary actions. I said I'd try to bring it by tomorrow and she said something like well thank you for calling most people wouldn't do that.
So, guess I'll be making a trip down there. Oh well, I felt really bad about it.
What reading material do you have in your bathroom?
This week I have:
A book of crosswords for long baths
"Till we have faces" by CS Lewis for same
and "The Color of Money" for shorter visits, such a crappily written book based on the mediocre Tom Cruise movie, but that makes it easy to just open up anywhere and read a bit. The Hustler was a great movie though.
Do you like to shoot pool? Are you good?
Do TV shows have commercials at the same time on purpose or is it just some long-running coincidence? I swear, every time I put something on during a commercial break, it's a commercial there, too!
I'm a teacher, and we had this challenge where the staff was split in half and we were given the task of decorating one of the common areas in our school. My group did a beach theme; we painted those ugly white ceiling tiles blue, painted a mural of a beach on one wall, and an underwater scene on another wall.
Tomorrow morning is the "unveiling" and we want to play some beach-y music as people on the other team come to look at it. Would you have any suggestions for songs to add to my CD? So far I've got "Under the Sea" from The Little Mermaid, a few Beach Boys songs, and some steel drum music.
I'm doing a project for school right now. It's a magazine of sorts. I have two people sending in me pages they prepared via email. Unfortunately one of them put it on a program that I don't have- Corel Wordperfect. I can't get the file. Could someone open it up, take a looksie, and send it to me on microsoft something or even ms paint?
any sarah mclachlin fans?
whats her best cd?
does she write her own music?
I few years ago I took a contemparay literature class, I believe it spanned 1950 to present, and included such books as One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Marquez, Tin Drum by Günter Grass, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett and Maus: A Survivor's Tale by Art Spiegelman.
I tell you this, in hopes that somewhere out there in Question-land, someone has taken a similar class and can tell me the title of one book I would love to read again, but cannot remember the name of.
It was about... the universe. The beginning of the universe, I think. It anthropomorphized parts of the universe, so that there were chemicals whose names were formulas had romances, and well, I don't remember. Elements who were frightened when they first saw light, or something.
Man, I'm not giving you much to work with here, am I? Sorry. It's been killing me for weeks, but I just can't figure out the name of the book, or even what to search for.
Edit It was Italo Calvino's Cosmicomics!
Is there a way to attatch a .wav file to a picture?
I want a song to play when I send my sister a picture.
How badly does your refrigerator freezer need to be defrosted?
My god... I just got through with defrosting and restocking our freezer. It was all kinds of nasty in there, and the ice on the ceiling was AT LEAST 2" thick, 3" thick in some spots. It was baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad. And gross.
I am absolutely amazed at how much space we have in the freezer now. :)
I remember sometime back someone posted, trying to get their ebay account back, because they had gotten in trouble for selling vodka-inject oranges, something about copyright?
Does Smirnoff own the idea of injecting vodka into an orange, or something?
trying to settle a discussion.
Where do people get the idea that deleting comments/posts is going to do anything but create more drama?
