2.) What do you consider a lot of friends?
3.) Any tips for someone who's learning disabled and going to college soon for their first semester?

6.) why or why not?
What are your holiday traditions?
In my family, we have dinner on Christmas Eve, at someones house (my mom and my aunt switch off) and then on Christmas morning, we open gifts from our immediate family, then go to whose ever house we werent at for Christmas Eve.. open presents from that part of the family.. and then go to my cousins house (she has little kids) and spend the rest of the day there.
This will change once my baby is aware of Christmas, because the household with the youngest kid gets the most hoopla !!
My aunt and my mom have been trying to convince us to open presents on Christmas Eve because "were all adults and it doesnt matter" They have been shot down every. year. :)
Whats the one gift you really want and will be sad if you dont recieve this year?
I really want a mother and child ring. But the gift Im really looking forward to is my iPod stereo, which I know Im getting because I picked it out ;)
And completely unrelated.. What size shoe do you wear? Do you like your feet?
I wear a size 9 (US). I love my feet. =]
regnia spektor: more talent or more sex appeal?
i've been trying to figure it out all day.
What do you do when you can't sleep?
Yeah.. well... what's the funniest movie you've ever seen?
Who the fuck do I call about a fucking toilet that is flooding and there is 1 or 2 inches of water in my bathroom and it WNOT STOP WHAT THE FUCK????????? its 1am are there 24 hr plumber?
Should I or shouldn't I add a second mod to my community?
It is pretty slow and there is only a post every 3 to 5 days, however I will be pretty busy next term as I have five classes and four of them require a lot of math and/or lab work.
Should I just pick a friend of mine or do the democratic thing and let my members vote in a new one?
Do you think steel-toe boots are sexy on women?
Most unfortunate incident of falling for/being attracted to someone?
Why was it unfortunate? (Social barriers? Maybe the person was just an arsehole?)
Right now, one's my teacher, one's my cousin and one's my best friend who lives in a different country.
Illegal, socially unacceptable (though not genetically...icky, as I'm adopted), geographically impossible.
Well, nothing except sporadic (ie once a year or less) visits with my best friend where you could cut the sexual tension with a knife.
Why is there a new video for The Fray's How to Save a Life?
What's a rad keyboard?
How much care do you put into your keyboard?
I've had mine for about five years and it's finally to the point where I don't wish to associate with its grime any longer. Even after cleaning it constantly.
if you were married to someone and found out you were first cousins or brother and sister what would you do? if you had kids, would you tell them?
most of the time, the registrar will ask if the couple is blood related before they can get a marriage license. if they say no, but find out yes later is the marriage void?
how do you define 'family'?
If you've dated someone for a while, but the relationship ends, has it been a waste of time?
1. what time did you wake up this morning
2. what's your favorite CD?
3. paper clip or staple?
4. do you want fries with that?
5. how would you moo like a chicken
In relationships, when do you voice your hurt/disapproval/disagreement? When do you let things go?
What kind of relationships squick you out?
If you took a part-time job in addition to working full-time, what would you do with the money? Let's say it's only about 4 hours a week, working independently and from home, and you earn about $120 a month.
I'm planning a trip to Europe in the spring, I'm considering going to Ibiza (an island off the coast of Spain) Has anyone ever been there? Would you recommend going? I know they have a pretty spectacular club/music scene.
Well, now I'm curious. Can your toilet handle baby wipes? Mine can't, apparently. The one in the house I grew up with could. I'm assuming that you're all going to yell at me for flushing baby wipes. Or for being 23 and still using them to wipe my ass. Haha. Anyway, sorry for freaking out last night... so this is the question club, answer my question! Hehe :)
I'm broke, so I'm just getting my boyfriend some little things for Christmas. One of the things I want to make is a little "coupon" book.
I'm definitely putting in a couple blowjob coupons in there.
And some "I'll do your laundry for you" coupons.
Maybe 1 or 2 "I'll do the dishes when it's your turn."
What else can I put in there? I'm looking for something kinda sweet and romantic that a guy would like.
WHY CAN'T I SLEEP???
I dunno whats wrong with me, normally it only takes me like half an hour, sometimes less to fall asleep at night. But for three weeks now I've been taking hours to get to sleep, and some nights not even sleeping at all. I try going to bed earlier, I try going to bed later, I changed to a more comfortable bed, I cut my dreadlocks off(sometimes they annoyed me and dug into my head when I tried sleeping), I turn the heating up, I turn the heating down, NOTHING WORKS and I'm constantly tired and it's driving me CRAZY!
Also, for any NZers- did you guys get those meningitis vaccines? I did. And so did my two of my friends, and they're having the same problem with sleeping as me. But most of my friends got those vaccines, and nobody else has mentioned anything...
Hm.. I asked another of my friends and she said it's cos she has low iron. I've always had super low iron (been taking tablets on and off for as long as I can remember), but I've never had problems sleeping before (not as bad as this anyway)
Has anyone here ever been to a life coach before? Did it help you sort out your goals and whatnot?
Is anyone here a life coach?
How do you become one?
I just read an article on it and I found it sort of interesting.
Is 11am too early for lunch? I'm starving.
What time do you usually have lunch?
I usually try to wait until halfway thru my work day (1pm) so my day 'goes by faster'
What are you having (or did you have) for lunch today?
I'm about to run to Chick-Fil-A since I forgot to pack a lunch.
Would surgical masks block out cigarette smoke?
one of my guys at work received a package of live lobster from one of his reps today.
problem is, he is out of town for the rest of the year.
what can i do with them? i dont think they'll last that long in the fridge.
can i freeze them without cooking them first?
I posted awhile ago about doing a "unity font" where I would mix two chemicals together to cause a pretty color. But I am wondering if there are other things I can do with two liquids.
I want to pour my liquid and my fiance's liquid together at our wedding ceremony, where something really cool would happen upon joining them together. It would be nice to have a kind of lava lamp effect, too, to symbolize the fact that we are still different personalities. Or just something really nifty that will make people ooh and ahh.
I would need to easily get ahold of the products, so nothing too obscure.
Allright, allright...here's a chance to settle it once and for all.
Who's the dopest....Ninjas or Pirates?
why is everyone making a big deal out of this new update window? i really don't see any difference other then a few cleaner looking lines . . .
i mean, it's an html text area. you type in your post and hit post. why is everyone going all crazy over it? i was appearently using it for about a week before i even noticed, and that only because i made a point to try to notice a difference after everyone started complaining about it.
Can anyone recommend a good quality novelty car horn? Specifically, the "awoooooooogah" one. It's going in an 07 Subaru Outback, if that matters.
Ah thank you!
How long were you going out with your SO before your parents gave them holiday gifts?
Did it depend on how many times they had met him/her?
How long was it before you got your SO's parents gifts?
Did it depend on how many times you had met them?
Did it depend on whether or not you were seeing them for the holiday?
I know that my boyfriend's mom and step-dad got me Christmas gifts. My mom also got my boyfriend a gift and today my step-mom told me that he was one of the last gifts she had to get and I was giving her some ideas. However, his mom and my mom both said "Don't tell him/her I got him/her anything because I don't want him/her to have to get me a gift too!" I know my step-mom and dad don't expect him to get gifts for our whole family either. We've been going out for about 10 months now and he and I are exchanging gifts on Friday because he's going away for Christmas with his family. His mom gave him my gift to give me this weekend and I'll probably give him my mom's gift that day also. My dad's family will probably give him the gift when he comes over for my sister's birthday party.
Is this normal compared to other people? How did it work for you?
Who asks your favorite questions?
1. Have you ever tried those shoot 4536 aliens and win a free laptop/ipod/hummer things? [those stupid 'game' ads plastered all over myspace]
2. Did you get whatever they advertised?
3. Or are they just scams?
I'm curious, because it seems that they're everywhere you look now.
4. Also, have you made any New Year's resolutions yet?
Looks like I'm getting a TV today. I'm probably spending about $1400 for a 40" LCD with 1366x768 resolution. Is there a really good reason why I should spend the $500 or so extra for a similar-size LCD with 1920x1080 resolution that'll display 1080p HDTV? I have DirecTV (not currently HD, but that may change), standard DVD, and a Nintendo Wii. I may get an XBox 360 in the future, but I have no current plans to get a Playstation 3 or any of the next-gen DVD formats.
1. Have you ever been banned from a community?
I was banned from some Harry Potter community a long time ago for "arguing" with the mod. I don't even remember why, or what community it was.
So... say you're a fighter... UFC... Boxing... whatever...
What would your entrance song be?
You're spotted by a talent scout who thinks you'd be a good model. You're offered a good deal of money for a day's work, which you accept. Later, you see the print ad you made. What would you do in the following situations?
1. Your head has been replaced with another person's head, but it's still your body.
2. Your body has been replaced with another person's body, but it's still your head.
3. It turns out that they used your picture as a "Before."
Edit: How much money would it have to be for you to not care?
Is there a polite way to get someone to stop snapping their gum loudly in an office environment?
This person in my office is snapping her gum so loudly it's drowning out not only my thoughts, but the sound of my very loud electronic staple gun. Cannot concentrate whatsoever. She does it once every thirty seconds.
What's a store that you have a hard time JUST browsing/wasting time in?
Best Buy. I don't waste time in Best Buy, I waste money. If I don't go into that store with a set objective, I'll always leave a
little lot lighter in the wallet than I planned on.
Have you ever tried Absinthe?
Do you remember the brand name?
Where di you get it?
Did you like it?
If you didn't, did you not like the taste, what it made you feel or something else?
how long into your relationship with your significant other (or past SO, if you're single) did it take for both of your parents to meet each other?
i've been with my boyfriend for a year and my parents have never met or even talked to his. i don't think they even know anything about each other. i met him at college and our parents' homes are two hours apart. i don't think they'd ever meet unless my boyfriend and i were getting married or something of the sort. i don't know if this is unusual or not.
my relationship before this one lasted for a year and a half and our parents never met either.
Have you ever read his books? What was your opinion? If you liked him, what was the best of all of his novels?
You prefer your girl...
1.) Dainty and prissy
2.) Sporty but feminine
3.) A macho type of woman
You prefer your man...
1.) A little more feminine than you
2.) Rough around the edges but sweet too
3.) A macho macho mannn (puts on indian headdress)
My brother and his girlfriend are vegans. They're coming by for Christmas lunch and everything has to be animal-free. Tiny bubbles of roast turkey and creamy tiramisu are bursting above me with sadness! Any ideas what to make them?
on itunes i just made a playlist to fall asleep to. so far the songs i have are:
1) not alone by augustana
2) fidelity by regina spektor
what other songs should i add?
Would you rather give birth to a hamster or a guinea pig?
If you did give birth to it, do you think the emotional impact would be more akin to giving birth to a human child or passing a stone?
What is the worst song you've ever heard and why? I'm talking one that comes on the radio and you cringe and have to change it immediately.
Here are a just few of mine:
1) Red, Red Wine - UB40 (I don't know, I just REALLY hate the singer's voice and plus the song itself sucks ass)
2) (I've had) The Time Of My Life - Theme from DIRTY DANCING. Because my Mom replayed that movie 105782384756 times and I can't stand to hear that song ever again as long as I live.
3) 30-Point Buck - because I can't stand the burping retards in the background
**EDIT - this is my first post in this community, and I have to say...I'm sitting here cracking up at my desk at all of your answers. Awesome.
This will probably fall into the category of "Questions which I will feel stupid for having asked," but oh well.
We've all seen them, working on the side of the road, two men in orange vests apparently employed by the state. One has a tripod with a scope, the other stands a distance away, holding a target. They work in stoic silence, with great intent and seriousness.
What the heck are they doing? Yes, I know that they are "Surveying" but...what the heck does that mean? I get the sense that they are making careful measurements, but I don't suppose they are the footmen of the cartography industry, I mean, the areas you always see them working in are already mapped, aren't they?
So what are those guys doing?
Comedy answers accepted, but I really am curious.
1a. Are you having some sort of 'holiday' party with the people at work?
1b. Is it at work, or somewhere else?
1c. Do the workers pay for it, or does the boss/company?
2a. When you applied for college, when did you start sending out applications?
2b. How many applications did you send out?
2c. How many schools accepted you?
3. Besides a spoon, what's your favorite thing to put Nutella on?
1. are you single?
2. how is your mom's cartman impression?
3. ok, i stole this from dear abby, what's your answer?
DEAR ABBY: When I learned that my 16-year-old son and his friends were high on marijuana at school, I reported them all to the administration. As a result, they were suspended from school for eight days. His friends' parents are furious with me, and now I am beginning to question whether I did the right thing.
My friends tell me I was right to do what I did. My son said I should have left his friends out of it. Apparently their smoking has been ongoing, and I do not believe it would have stopped unless they faced disciplinary action. By the way, I am a middle school teacher. What do you think?
They say you shouldn't shit where you eat. Is it alright to eat where you shit?
Have you ever had ice cream and granola together?
Did you like it?
Is it a weird combo?
Do those hair straightening shampoos and conditioners really work [Herbal Essence’s new products] or are they just a waste of money? If so, is there one that really works?
Why is it that no matter how little or much I sleep I’m still always really tired? Are there sleeping disorders that could be the cause of this?
Tomorrow I'm flying for the first time since I've been married.
I realized that my husband booked the flight using my married name. My drivers license still has my maiden name (cause stupid Idaho makes you write the written test just to change your name ugh!). I have a school ID that has a picture with my married name on it. Will that work? Or what about if I bring my marriage certificate that has both on it?
Also, we're bringing our dog. I'm scouring the Delta website to see if there's anything we need to know about bringing him early, or where to take him or something, but I'm coming up short. Does anyone have any idea?
What do you call the part of your glasses that goes over the ears? Does that even have a word in English?
Someone IM's you and tells you to call 911 there is someone in their house, or they are dying or something, do you do it?
What if you just met the person? If not, and something horrible happened, would you feel like shit?
What was the most disgusting, vile thing you have ever seen in your life, ever? Pics Plz.
What do you have too many of?
Does anyone else not buy Tara (Miss USA's) fake-ass apology and crocodile tears on the news?
Anyone else want to punch her?
1. What food are you craving most right now?
2. Re: Titanic. If you had to chose, would you have gone with Cal or Jack?
3. What are some movies that you hate to love/love to hate?
4. What's the worst physical pain you've endured in the past month?
5. Do you think this new year will be better than the old one?
6. Do you prefer pastel or bold colors?
What's a movie worth seeing that's out right now?
Would you rather drive:
15 miles to a movie you really want to see
2 miles to a movie you want to see that has received bad reviews
I really want to see Running with Scissors but it's playing downtown which is of course 15 miles away from me. Where as Stranger Than Fiction is playing only 2 miles away from me but everyone has said negative things about it.
How do you give without the long for recognition? I think I'm going to try to diminish that by doing anonymous acts of kindness, a part of me still craves the recognition. Yet when I do get recognition, I feel like the deed was meaningless because it wasn't out of pure, good-hearted intentions.
I fear I would get lost doing good deeds merely for recognition subconsiously.
1. Did you see any movie
twice more than once during its theatrical release this year? I saw three twice: Casanova, Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest, and Casino Royale.
2. If you've seen the BBC Casanova miniseries (with David Tennant) and the movie (with Heath Ledger and Sienna Miller), which did you prefer?
3. What's the oddest thing that's in your purse/backpack/wallet right now? I've got dental floss and a toothbrush in my messenger bag right now--I got them at the dentist last weekend and I haven't taken them out yet.
2) Do you take prescription medicine for migraines/headaches? If so, what?
3) Is there a grocery delivery service in your area? Have you used it?
Do you hate people like me who don't read books, don't have a clue what you're talking about when you ask book related questions, & just generally aren't arsed when it comes to literature?
Do you pay for the majority of your software programs? Do you hate people who 'steal' all their programs?
Nope, I can't remember the last time I paid for a program.
Ok. Is it "dee-cal" or "dec-all"?
 great, so i've been saying it wrong for about 18 years. At least according to the dictionary.
Appendix: What's your nationality?
So my laptop is on its last legs. I somehow messed up the hinges, so the screen can be wobbly, the keyboard is iffy, generally it's not good.
The biggest problem, though, is that I'm out of memory. I barely have enough free space to run stuff, and everything is really slow. I essentially cannot download any more music/shows/etc. I also have a lot of Adobe documents for my thesis that I need to save.
My parents have also said that they will buy me a new laptop when I graduate in May, since I am going to graduate school and will need something to write my Master's thesis with.
1. Is it worth it for me to spend the money on more memory when I'm getting a new laptop in May?
2. Should I buy an external hard drive instead?
2b. I'm planning on getting a MacBook in May, so if I buy an external hard drive to use with my PC, will I be able to use it with a Mac?
2c. Can I get an external hard drive for less than $100?
So here's a Readers Digest Condensed Version of my life the past few months.
I found out my partner of two years who I was madly in love with had been cheating on me for months. I'm 25 years old and this is my first heartbreak.
Two weeks later, I found out my store was closing. I lost the only job I ever loved, as well as the second family I had there.
I'm not talking to him anymore, and I'm back in school after being away for years. I go out with friends regularly. I've got a part-time job but it's seasonal, I'll be done with it in January.
My question is this: Other than just giving it time, is there anything I can do to help me "get over it"?
I found a thing for LJ a week or so back that would change IM screennames to LJ usernames. Apparently, you paste in a piece of an IM conversation in one box, and then in little boxes below you enter in the two screennames, and the corresponding usernames, and it would change them for you so as to save you some time.
But since then, I've lost the link to it.
Anyone want to help me out?
For people who are attracted to people of their same sex:
1. Are you attracted to people who look like you physically?
1a. If no, how are the people you are attracted to different from yourself?
2. Are you attracted to people who have the same style as you?
2a. If No, what style do the people you are attracted to have?
3. Are you attracted to people who remind you of yourself?
1. I was watching the Colbert Report earlier and Deepak Chopra was being interviewed. It reminded me that I've been meaning to pick up some of his books. What would be a good book to start with if you aren't all that familiar with the subjects he discusses?
2. Along the same lines. Can anyone recommend a good beginners guide to Quantum Theory/Physics?
I really want to post something in brutal_honesty, but Im worried that my friends will see it.
Has anyone posted there, and did anyone on your friends list say anything to you?
Or is it like, an unspoken rule that you never bring it up outside of b_h ever.
What are your feelings on the shameless confessional communities? bad_sex, b_h, Im sure there must be others.
I am super bored and need people to entertain me.
Umm.. What kind of car do you drive?
I'm trying to decide if I should go to a conference being held in the spring with some guest speakers that include, Tony Robbins and Vicente Fox to name a few. Only catch is that tickets start at $230 and go up from there. Has anyone in TQC seen Tony Robbins live? Is it worth the money? I know he is probably the worlds most famous motivational speaker.
What's the best way to organize a mix CD?
For example start with a few crowd frothers, then a really upbeat track, then launch into a slower one to balance it out and so on and so forth... Some argue compiling Mix CDs or tapes is an art. What do you think works best?
if you got a gift from a loved one that was pretty pricy and really nice, but you don't think you'd ever would really use it, would you stay silent and keep it or would you tell them?
