Can anyone recommend one? Are there any I should stay away from?
Edit: We're *not allowed* to do gift certificates. Bah.
2. what's your favorite airport?
3. favorite airline?
4. when's the last time you flew?
What crazy/strange thing does your pet do?
BUT, I know, god damn it, that when I wake up tomorrow it's going to be ass all over again. I don't want to go to bed, now, even though my body is tired and I know rest is the best thing.
WHY do you always feel worse waking up than you do later in the day, when you're ill?!
Where do you get yours?
What was the last one you listened to?
2) What has been the hardest part of your life? How old were you?
3) What is your favorite animal?
4) What do you want to forget right now?
What do you look like? (aka post pictures)
I hope the el jay cut thingy worked..i'm quite html retarded.
Did it taste good or bad?
[If it tasted good] Do you still eat it from time to time?
2) which would you appreciate more: a nice framed photo of you and your best friend, matted, looks nice etc, or a gift card to somewhere you love? would the fact that you'd recently moved far away from your best friend make a difference in your choice?
I've decided to get some small tins at the dollar store and make some cookies (pre-made dough for this endeavor since I have to do a bunch) and some homemade chocolate truffles.
2. who's your favorite author(s)
3. how often do you clean the bathroom?
4. what year did/will you graduate from high school?
You read the police blotter in your local paper of a criminal who was arrested for committing battery during a carjacking while they were on drugs. What do you feel should happen to this person?
While driving along one day, you stop at a deserted traffic light. Suddenly, someone rushes out from the shadows and pulls a gun on you and demands your vehicle. Startled, you slowly get out of the car, only to be struck in the face with the gun. You watch your car drive away, and only then realize that your purse was in the front seat. They catch the criminal later. What punishment would be fair for this criminal?
Have you ever had one of these published on the web or in a newspaper before?
I hate it when I accidentally cut my fingernail too short and it hurts for a few days. At least I don't have to type with my thumb today.
I tried to download AIM on my computer, and it's telling me I need administrative access. I do have that, except for one drive which I think is the one it's trying to install on. Is there any way to edit the install file (.exe,) so that it won't pick that path automatically?
Do you find people to be in or out of your league?
Are you male or female?
When asked "Who is your favorite author?" A lot of people say 'David Sedaris' (I do too).
If you don't like David Sedaris, feel free to skip over this post, head out to your library, and pick up a copy of 'Me Talk Pretty One Day' (one of my favorites of his).
I enjoy his books because he is funny, and because I also love Strangers With Candy/Amy Sedaris, so reading about their life at home/as children is cool. Also, his stories are really interesting. (I really have nothing intelligent to say, sorry).

Does anyone know which sing-along-songs dvd has a song on it called "The Spectrum Song"? It's a song from Disney's "Wonderful World of Color", as I understand it, and most of the lyrics are names of colors. I desperately want to get this particular dvd for a x-mas gift, but Disney doesn't list every single song on the disc on the case, just the major motion picture hits. (Bah, Disney!)
Thanks for any clues!
So my question is obvious, how tall are you? And your gender?
I'm 5'11. 6' in sneakers. Female.
If you are out of college, assuming you attended, did you ask a pool of people for answers on your take home exams, or did you do the work yourself? (me: sometimes both)
Did you get together with folks from your class to compare answers? Work on the answers together as a group who attended the same class all semester? (me: the second)
When asked a question about a homework issue on tqc, do you ever give the wrong answer intentionally? (me: I haven't, but have been tempted)
I live in South Central PA, and steamed shrimp is big on New Year's Eve, and the traditional New Year's Day menu is pork and sauerkraut, usually with mashed potatoes.
2) Did you watch SNL Saturday night? What did you think?
3) What's a good side dish with a baked ham and green bean casserole that is NOT mashed potatoes?
It's about how the media affects us.... and the extent to which it does...

(company credit car, company car, gas compensation, free meals, etc..)
Mine was probably when I worked at Starbucks. Well, one of the ones I worked at. The first one I worked at, my manager encouraged us to consume as many drinks as possible, so we could properly describe drinks to people, so that was nice. The other 'bucks I worked at was in Target, so I was actually employed by Target, and they were Nazi's when it came to free drinks...or free anything.
Post pictures (if you have them) to compare. If you were born fully formed, as you are now, tell us about that too.
I also just realized I've always had pretty short hair. And that I don't really smile.
7. Does the Greco-Roman world offer nothing but a basic uniformity (patriarchal, androcentric, phallocratic, even misogynistic) in the perception of gender and sexuality, or do you also find evidence for some variance from this predominant situation at both the personal and the socetal level.
2.) Do you have a certain comfort food that, no matter how hard you try, you just can't seem to make taste right (as opposed to the way a certain restaraunt makes it, the way your mother made/makes it, etc) what is the food?
1.) None that really come to mind, but I'm interested in YOUR answers =)
2.) Macaroni and Cheese. The cheese never seems to stick to the noodles and I do everything my mother does, but it always comes out wrong. urg
I wish I could read faster.
Sometimes I wish i could play piano or guitar.
What do you wish you could do?
I'm done with classes (if not my thesis) and my brain is mush. I want chick lit- nothing to complex, or depressing. I have The Devil Wears Prada and Everyone Worth Knowing and The Nanny Diaries. What else in this vein is there? I need recovery, people. Help meeeeeee!
What do you think of this kid? Be honest, what would you do if you found $24,000 sitting on the ground somewhere?
Do you really think that the celebrity goes to the show each day, or is it some random guy until the day that Ellen "reveals" the mystery guest?
2) Do you enjoy it (yes/no)
4) If you don't enjoy what you do, why did you take that job in the first place?
5.) If you don't enjoy it, and you're out of college, do you ever wish you had taken the time to find a career you really love? (If that is why you don't like it)
2)What is your favorite television show with a primarily black cast?
3)Who is your favorite black music artist?
4)What is your favorite foreign film that is in a language other than the one you primarily speak?
I won't give my opinion so I won't skew results or something.
Should black and white people marry outside their race?
2 - Least sexy?
3 - Your fave fictional character?
4 - Your fave board game?
5 - Who do you recommend for HP fanart?

I just remembered that when I went to see Idlewild I was completely blindsided by the ridiculously sad part in the middle.
Yes, I don't know why though. I guess it kind of reminds me of It's a Wonderful Life for whatever reason
Is being spat on the ultimate form of disrespect? If not, what do you think is worse?
I think it's way up there, I can't think of anything worse at the moment
And sort of a spin off to this post here in the TQC, do you think that it is more widely accepted for a white man to date a black woman, than it is for a black man to date a white woman? If yes, why do you think that is?
I'm not sure, I'm pretty interested in hearing answers
Edit: Sorry guys, I accidentally typed the question in the html instead of under the picture.
Do you know what this symbol means? No, it's not my tattoo, nor am I interested in getting it, just curious what it means.
I ordered coffee at a Starbucks for the first time today! And I didn't mess it up! This means I'm a full fledged member of civilization now, right? :D
It's got patchy feathers, and is a little bit smaller than a sparrow, and a wide beak.
How often do they need feeding? What do you recommend?
I tried it on baby gruel stuff, and it spat it back up, so i'm trying sustagen with water for now. The vet's closed for the night, and I'd like to know if I'm on the right track.
2. Would you say the scrambled eggs at Perkins are runny or normal? [if applicable]
3. Is the Perkins near you 24 hours? [if applicable]

5. How often do you replace your toothbrush?
6. What do you look at when you type?
7. How much/long can you type accurately without looking at the keyboard?
Anyone have anything happy to say? :)
do you dunk your oreos in milk?
Does anyone say "gnarly" anymore? In a snowboarding, non-ironic context?
What would you think of someone who bought this gift card non-ironically for someone?
Do you tend to use the same passwords over and over? How many do you have?
And there are a plethora of desserts already, so I can't wimp out and just bake a cake or something, dammit.
Do I still have a chance of getting in? Will it matter at all?
Made any stupid blunders recently you'd like to share?
ETA: If my email address is a tad unproffesional, should I change it? Do things like that matter?
( Collapse )
How'd you feel.
Would/have you dated (married) someone outside of your race?
If you have, have you faced criticism because of this? Was the criticism from your race or the other person's?

2. What book(s) are you currently reading?
