When you were younger did your parents dress you and your siblings or cousins close in age alike all the time?

My best friend from high school just gave birth to her son this afternoon. My mom still has no idea Em was even pregnant. Is it weird that I never told her?

Anything aching on you right now? I've got a horrible headache..

When you were in elementary school, did your teachers ever put ENORMOUS emphasis on never starting a sentence with "because"? They always insisted that it wasn't a complete thought if you started it with "because", therefore it was WRONG! AND IF YOU DO IT YOU FAIL!

...Or was it just my school's idea?

What's your favorite religious joke?


This is mine:

And Jesus said unto them, "And whom do you say that I am?" His disciples replied, "You are the eschatalogical manifestation of the ground of our being, the ontological foundation of the context of our very selfhood revealed." And Jesus replied, "What?"

How to cook hambugar??

So, I'm trying to cook hambugars without burning them. The direction says heat the pan up to medium heat in a non-stick frying pan. Ok.. I do that... but the mintue I put the hambugars in the pan, it starts smoking like crazy . So I'm thinking the pan isn't non-stick. I guess I need to add oil? Right? What kind? I don't like it when the oil spits out and burns my arms.

Anyone read vampire romance books?

What are some good vampireromance books? :-)  I personally love the Black Dagger Brotherhoodseries. March 6th 2007 the next one comes out!!

-- Edit --
I have two nightgowns - chemise that I love- they ae 90 percent polyester, and 10 percent spandex, both of them.

Iam trying to find a store online that sells that. But I've found one orthe other, not both. And, I've also found 100 percent polyester.

Would I notice the difference if I bought the 100 percent polyester?

body image

Do you think Mariah Carey is as overweight as the media portrays her to be?  I know she is bigger than a lot of the female celebrities in the public eye, but in real life compared to the average woman is she fat?

Do you lie about your weight/size when asked?  Is the weight on your drivers license (or whatever is registered with the state if its not on your license) correct?  How much do you weigh?

baby its cold outside...

I know I just posted, but I just was thinking about this and decided to ask.  It is totally off topic from my other post I made a new one, if its better to edit the last post let me know!  Thanks!

I live in south east Michigan, a few days ago we were hit with a pretty big storm (for us at least!) and a spell of paticularly cold weather.  I just moved back in with my parents, and I didnt realize how cold they keep they keep the house.  I don't remember it being this chilly in the house growing up but that could be selective memory.  Everywhere I've lived on my own has luckily included landlord paid heat, so I'm used to being toasty inside.

My parents set the thermostat at 68* during the day, at 11pm it drops to 64*. 

What is your thermostat usually set to in the winter?  Do you turn it up when its really really cold outside, or do you just dress warmer?

Clean Hair

How much (approximately) do you spend on shampoo? If you are like me and tend to stick to the less expensive brands (I cringe inwardly to pay more than $4 a bottle), would you buy the more expensive brands if you suddenly had a lot of money to spend on hair products? If you use the less expensive brands, do you feel the more expensive brands are just pretty much the same thing, only with better perfume added to the mix or do you think those expensive brands really have something the cheaper brands don't (besides a double or triple digit price tag)?

1. For $10,000 and any lawyers fees and fines covered (you'd be getting the best, most connected lawyer out there and wouldn't serve any jail time - maybe a little community service) would you punch a complete stranger in the face as hard as you could? You'd get to pick the stranger.

2. If a stranger socked you in the face and gave you a black eye, but then offered you $5,000 to make up for it, how do you think you'd react? Take the money? Sue their ass? Cry?

2:16 PM 1/25/07 · While they may generally be used often enough in common speech, not many people outside of me uses Complex Contractions as much as I do when I type. It's just a thing, was doing it for quite awhile before I was conciously aware of it. The ones I most commonly use are the following:

  • I'd've (I would have)

  • wouldn't've (would not have)

  • couldn't've (could not have)

  • shouldn't've (should not have)

  • All seem to end in have and it's hard to think of a 4 word combo. All I can think of is (I would not have) but my head won't wrap around how to type it. Hell, even the simpler (I have not) confounds me.

    So, it's Friday. What are you doing this weekend?

    Well, tonight I'm hopefully getting snowed in so I don't have to go hang around the barn for 12 hours in hopes of a foal being born (we were lucky Sunday and there was one, so the night wasn't a complete waste). Tomorrow I'll be sleeping all day since tonight is going to kill me. Sunday I get to be at the barn all day (vs all night, like tonight) and watch the freshman and make sure they don't pull anymore stupid shit--like breaking buckets over the arena rail so the water freezes INSIDE THE ARENA.

    This may be a ridiculous question, but I've probably gone to the doctor 15 times in my entire life, 90% of those for prenatal care.

    If you go to the doctor and tell them you want blood taken to test for something specific, will they most likely be receptive and do it for you? What about if it's the first time you've seen this doctor?

    To clarify, I'd like to get tested for hypothyroidism and also have my blood sugar tolerance analyzed. Since I've never seen this doctor before, I wondered if she'd think it odd if I ask outright for the tests.

    How many times a year do you go to the doctor?
    Are you one of those people who will only go if forced at gunpoint from your deathbed?
    If you have children, do you tend to take them more often or less often than you go yourself?
    Have you ever asked your doctor to test you for something specific?

    Converting movies to play on a website

    Hi all,
    I have a .vob movie and the attendant .bup and .ifo files that I'd like to put on a website. It needs to be as dialup/non-geek-friendly as possible (aka compact) and able to choose to view the video, not just have it start playing. I know about Windows Media Player and Quicktime (but am not sure I have all the extensions straight); can anyone recommend a way to do this and keep it simple? I found this website, any other suggestions? I've never done anything like this before.

    2) Does anyone else NOT watch it?

    3) Did you happen to watch "The OC" last night? What did you think of it? The plotlines were so factually incorrect, stupid, and I yelled at the TV a lot.

    6) If a conservative has an unpopular opinion (for explanation, being pro-life, being pro-Christianity, being anti-same-sex marriage), why are they constantly vilified by liberals and the liberals are cheered on, but if a liberal is vilified by a conservative, everyone jumps on the conservative hating bandwagon and supports liberals spouting what is basically a huge amount of intolerance?
    (For the record, I'm a liberal, so this isn't a "grudge" question." Also, these are "generalizations" and I realize that, and in no way represents the whole of these two mentioned groups. There are obviously ones who do not fit this description in both camps.)

    Five years ago I found an internet site with romantic poetry--some from contributors, some from classics. Each one you clicked on had some pretty background music. I think the cursor was butterflies or something.

    One of the poems was about love, but talked about a fairy ship from across the sea. I can't for teh life of me a) find the site, or b) remember enough of the poem to locate it.

    Anyone have any guesses?

    Alright, I need some help again, so here I am, TQC.

    My computer is full. I'm running out of room on the hard drive and it keeps harping at me when I try to do things that need a lot of temporary memory like burning DVDs. And it's making everything go suuuper slow.

    I got the computer from my school, and when we first got them I'm pretty sure they told us that they were set up to automatically back up everything you do from the other end of the harddrive. Not that "the other end" really means anything, but basically, as I understood it, only half of the hard drive would be accessible and the other half would just back up everything. Down the road I might need to figure out how to change this, but for now I'd like to leave it as is, I think.

    So, I need to get rid of some crap. When I get time I'm going to go through and burn some files and stuff that I don't need very often on DVDs so I can get them off of my hard drive. But I'd like to do more than that, since I don't think that'll really free up too much space.

    I have a lot of software that came on it - stuff that's automatically on the laptops when we get them from school. A lot of this stuff is stuff I will never use. My major is like electronic art, basically, and I'm at a tech school, so a lot of the software is there because the engineering majors or whoever else needs it and I don't need it at all. I don't even know what it IS.

    Which is where you guys come in! Can anybody give me an idea of what any of these programs are for, so I can make sure I won't need them and I can go ahead and uninstall them?

    I've got:

    There's also a few other things in my Programs menu that I suspect are smaller applications so I'm not going to worry about them quite yet. So, any input regarding those 5 would be great.

    Also, any tips for freeing up more space on my hard drive? Maybe I should just buy some more memory. :)

    I've noticed recently that whenever someone does something that bothers or upsets me, I have to think about it for a couple days before I'm ready to talk to them about it. If I try to talk about it right after it happens, I can't seem to get my words out or figure out what I'm even feeling and I usually just end up crying (my specialty, ugh); I'm a really emotional person obviously.

    So naturally the other person is totally confused if I bring something up that happened earlier in the week because they had no idea they even did anything to hurt me, so they get defensive and then I get upset again and it's just a big mess.

    How do you keep your emotions under control when you need to have A Talk? I need some tips, man.

    I've tried Ambien, Ambien CR, Lunesta, Lexapro, and Rozerem and nothing has helped me sleep. Have you guys tried anything besides those that helped you? I want to be more knowledgeable the next time I go to my doctor instead of just accepting whatever medicine he gives me next.

    1. How long have you spent sitting in a plane on the tarmac?
    I spent 6 hours sitting on a plane waiting to go on a 2 hour flight. They took us back to the gate 3 or 4 times and before anyone got off they would change their mind and decide we were really going to take off that time. On the way home we got to sit on the tarmac for about 4 hours.

    2. If it was unusually long, what airline was it? Did they give you anything for it?
    It was Continental. Worst airline I've ever encountered. They gave us a coupon for $50 for the 6 hours, but nothing for the 4 hours.

    3. Did the plane finally take off?

    5. Your sister (or brother or best friend if you are siblingless) disappears over a holiday, after talking with you and saying she and the husband are having some really difficult times. You call and call - finally the husband tells you she's with him but won't talk to anyone. This persists for 5 days. Finally, you call her and she is out and about and acts as if nothing happened. You explain how worried you've been and are glad to hear from her and she acts glib about it and says "I never asked you to worry about me." Come to find out, there was an attempted suicide by her while she was so absent - and she still stands by her glib POV that people need to not make such a big deal out of things and not worry or pay attention to gut feelings they may have about her in the future.       How does this make you feel?

    apartment hunting

    So I'm searching for an apartment and I'm having trouble finding a place that is cheap, safe and pet friendly. Does anyone know of a website that I could use to find apartments other than apartment.com, rent.com, move.com, craigslist.org?

    BTW, I live in California.

    Believe it or not, this question sprang from the ANS post

    Q: Considering the currency in place in your country (penny, nickel, quarter, dollar, $5, etc), do you feel that there should be another bill or coin to bridge the gap somewhere? A new bill or coin that should be introduced for convenience' sake?

    My answer
    I think there could be a $30 bill. Many things exceed $30, and sometimes a bunch of twenties isn't efficient enough. Because things cost more these days than they used to and $20 doesn't go as far as it used to, and not everyplace can break a $50

    I also feel they could boost the economy by making a $15 bill. Many meals with a drink fall into the low teens, and it forces people to have to sometimes get up and break their $20, which is inconvenient, and they may tip less as a result. A standard $15 bill might make people more generous for there's a greater chance they'll just leave $15 regardless of bill to avoid dealing with change afterwards, and it would be more convenient in the food industry who wouldn't have to waste time counting out several bills for every other transaction

    My stepdad came home and was surprised to see me because he didn't know I was getting out of school early. He asked me why I was home and I told him he had a half day. He nodded, paused for a second and then asked, "Did the ugly kids get a half day too?"
    I took it as a compliment.

    When was the last time you were almost killed? What's the closest you've ever come to a grisly and gruesome death?

    It's windy here today in Denver and while driving home from class there was some debris on the highway. One such piece of debris was the entire metal hood from someone's car. It went straight at my windshield but luckily swooped downward at the last second and ricocheted off of the front and side of my car. If it would have hit directly either my face and head would probably be rather messed up or sitting in the back seat of my car. Still very shaken up.

    Avoiding work...

    Does anyone actually like getting needles?

    In the same vein, do you like getting medical procedures done?

    For me, I'd say yes and yes. I've had so many needles that I just tell them to have at it, and medical things are fun! I got to enjoy medical procedures in a perverse kind of way after a while (after 6 major surgeries, I had no choice lol).

    3)When you are sick of your journal or just grow out of this phase where you want to share your life with people from the internets, will you just leave it out there for posterity or whoever is fortunate/dumb enough to stumble on it or will you delete it?

    Hypothetical question.

    Say you're in a relationship. You're happy with your chosen mate and you have little to no desire for others and he/she is happy with you. One day, you discover that someone outside your relationship sexually fantasizes about you.

    - How would you react to this news?
    - Do you expect people to not fantasize about you if you're dating someone?

    Computer Tech shit

    EDIT: OMG It freakin' works now. Stupid thing.

    I am putting an old hard drive into my computer. It has Windows ME on it. My hard drive has XP. Yesterday, I could get it to boot from XP and be able to browse the files on the new D drive. But today, for some reason, it will only boot from the ME drive and won't say that the XP drive is there. The ME drive also won't register the CD drive, so I can't put any drivers on it or anything. I am trying to get the important stuff off of the ME drive and format it. But today, I can't even get the XP drive to boot without unplugging the ME drive first and that defeats the whole purpose. I even changed the boot order in the BIOS and it still isn't working.

    WTF am I doing wrong? Do you think maybe one of the IDE cables is broken? It registers both HDs in the BIOS so I don't think that's it. And they both have the correct jumpers in to make them Master and Slave. Why would this work yesterday and not today? How much would I electrocute myself if I plugged in the ME drive after it's already booted from the XP drive?

    I hope there are some tech geeks in here who can help me. I would normally call my brother, but he's in class right now and it can't wait. I need to get this done ASAP.

    sometimes when i'm on youtube and i'm waiting for a video to load, it starts to load for a few seconds and then the red line that shows how much has loaded goes straight to the end, making me think that its fully loaded.

    the problem is, when i play the video, it only plays for a few seconds (and sometimes not even that) and then finishes. this has happened to me several times and even when i refresh the browser, restart the computer, reconnect to the internet, the video will only play a few seconds with the red line fully loaded. its pissing me off so much, because a lot of videos i reeeallly want to view are acting like this!

    does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    1. Do you feel that anyone is above getting booed? For example if Michael J. Fox or Tom Brokaw did something dumb would they get a boo pass?

    2. If ever, when's the last time you went somewhere where people were booing? Why were they doing so?

    3. Do you remember the last time you booed somebody?

    Bonus: Can you tell I'm really boored?

    Okay. I've been laid off since November third and I've applied at 63 different places since then. I've had less than 10 interviews and no job has come through, either. I'm beginning to think I suck at interviewing. I never know what to say or ask when the potential employer says 'do you have any questions for me?', or 'can you tell me anything about yourself/introduce yourself to me?'

    I've been out of the job market for the past two and a half years and I feel like I get visibly nervous and flustered. I just had an interview today and I took a notebook with me with questions and things to say on it, and I just need pointers. So, what do I ask or do to stand out? Help me plz.

    omg! =(

    Basically, I've been stood up literally every day of the entire week.

    I planned this year so the first few months would pretty much revolve around nothing but photoshoots. I kept up with my end of everything, but apparently can't seem to make up for other people not keeping up with theirs. This week I had photoshoots planned for like every day and they all fell through. All of them. At one point, I showed up at a studio and it was abandoned. I waited an entire hour, but the photographer didn't even get in touch until I was already home and rescheduled it for an entire WEEK from now.

    I was set on going on a date today and the person was making a big deal of how they'd call me last night and only missed my original call because their day minutes ran out. I got no call, and if they have no minutes, I can't call them. No date.

    Without being able to do shoots, hang out with people or really go shopping (my shopping trips were going to be geared toward out of state photoshoots so I could brush up on luggage and the likes....and those trips are delayed due to the current delays in shoots) I'm really left without getting to do anything.

    And have found myself eating the entire week. It being the week of Valentine's makes it especially bad, because of the overabundance of stuff to eat. I've so far run through piles and piles of boxes and trays of cupcakes and brownies. And now that I've plowed through it all, my mom comes home with a giant chocolate cake.

    I can already see my abs smoothing out, but have nothing planned for the weekend and am freaked out. Any ideas to reduce my hunger? =)

    Do you ever have an itch that you cannot find? Like you THINK it's in one spot, but when you scratch the spot, it's just not there.

    That happens to me at least once a day. I HATE IT!! I think it's due to my allergies. I take Zyrtec because I'm allergic to EVERYTHING. But I've faced the truth....All the Zyrtec in the world isn't going to save me from getting itchy when I choose to share my house with 2 dogs and 5 rats.


    recently i've run into old friends (10 years back) and one of them is having a party tomorrow. she used to have the best parties and there will be strippers (female) and i'm sure it'll be good times. a couple nights ago i ran into one of the friends, a guy, and was drunk and too friendly and said he should be my date. i meant it purely in a platonic sense but he has since been flirty with me, i believe. i'm not interested and not exactly single.

    should i go to the party and if so, how do i send the right message without making an ass of myself? and also how do i avoid being a target for a stripper to stick her dirty cooter in my face?

    Halp, dearest TQC!

    Hey Colorado members:

    I live in Colorado with my mother over the summers on occasion. Over spring break I'm going out with a friend to give her her first far away adventure (we live in WV) and so I can see Mom.

    We'll be stationed in Colorado Springs, but can handle some travel. We'll expect at least one day in Denver. We're only 18. Since I'm not really a native, I just spend a few months there every once in a while, I tend to forget about all the really cool stuff to do out there.. So my question iiiis: What are some must-see or must-do things in Colorado that I should include in our list of awesome things to see and do?

    So far I have Casa Bonita and a trip through Garden of the Gods while eating BJ's Velvet Freeze ice cream. And da zoo.

    Getting to know youuuu... o/~

    1- How do/did you make friends? Online or off.
    2- How many people on your LJ friend list do you talk to more than in just comments/posts? (In person or online, you choose!)
    3- When adding a friend on LJ, what's the most important factors in doing so?
    4- Is it obvious I don't know how to make friends and need help? ;P

    ETA: No, this isn't a dig to get LJ friends. I really wonder how normal mortals get friends. Talking to strangers out of no where seems to get me odd stares, and I don't go to school, nor have many co-workers (my grandparents and me, whoooooo!) :( So I figure that figuring out how to get LJ friends is a start. :3

    Hokay. my last ?'s of the day...

    1) If you could eat pennies and shit quarters (whether the "shit" would be just quarters, or if you would have to go through shit to get the quarters, whatever...) would you do it?
    2) What are some of your guilty pleasures on your playlist?
    3) What genre of music do you absolutely despise?
    4) what were some of your favorite TV shows as a child?


    1) well, i dont know if i would, but I could DEFINITEY use some money right now (especially laundry money....)
    2) Most of my playlist oldies, rock *NOT* pop rock, and weird stuff--i listen to air, broken social scene, death in vegas, expendibles, smashing pumpkins, etc... what most would consider stoner music. (which is good to listen to stoned, buuuut i dont consider it stoner music)--HOWEVER, i do have a few Britney Spears, Justin Timerlakes, Air Supplies, thrown in there.
    3) I hate rap. and country. but with few exceptions, other than that, hate them with a passion
    4) Ren and Stimpy, Daria (yes, i watched it as a kid, along with beavis and butthead at an even earlier age, lol), salute your shorts, doug, and many many others

    Creative practical ways of taking out a large snowbank?

    I throw in practical because.. I imagine a flamethrower would work wonders.. but like I have one of those lying around.

    But, for instance.. I was wondering if there's a way you could build a fire on top of it in the middle and it would just melt on down and the surrounding area.. But of course, melting snow = water = no more fire?

    Secondly, I wonder what road flares would do, if anything. Like, maybe if I had 6, and did something crazy like duct tape 6 of them together on the end of a broomstick. I imagine the heat off of that would be unreal.. but would it melt the entire snowbank or just barely melt an insignificant amount?

    I’m probably asking the wrong place, but you’ve never failed me before..don’t start now ;)

    2 years ago I leant $4,000 to a friends mother. She was in dire need of money at the time and I had recently come into a lot of it. Now, TQC, it has been 2 years and she has paid me back nothing. It is under contract that she has to pay me back that amount by January of this year! I have talked to her about it before and she has said she has deposited money into my account...I have received none of it over the past 2 years. I don’t want to go to court, it will cost me money I don’t have and I would rather stay on good terms with her. What do you suggest I do, TQC? Do I have to break her legs? What gives? I want my moolah.

    I just got my belly button re-pierced. Therefore, I have piercing questions.

    1. Have you ever gotten something repierced after it had closed? Did it hurt worse?
    2. What piercings do you have?
    3. What piercings do you hate?
    4. What piercing do you like but would never personally get?
    5. I'm thinking about piercing my tongue. I would have to hide it until I could change it to a clear//flat barbell. How long did yours take to heal?
    6. Any gross and weird experiences//stories?

    1. This motherfucker. I screamed during, and teared up afterwards. I didn't flinch last time.
    2. Belly button, tragus, cartilage and ears.
    3. I think the one where you get the webbing of your fingers pierced is just idiotic. There's lots that people do that just seems dumb and pointless to me.
    4. Lips and eyebrows.
    5. YOU TELL ME!
    6. My sister had her belly button pierced and played volleyball. She dove for the ball, her ring got caught on a crack in the gym floor, and tore up 3 inches of her belly skin. NASTY.

    My Yahoo Personals subscription just expired. Do I renew? It costs $25 for a month, or $50 for three months, or $75 for six months (I had a six month subscription before). I've dated two people I met on there (one of which I went out with for about a month and a half, and we now hang out as friends). Worth paying the money to possibly meet someone?

    Has any girl ever been chewing bubble gum while she was giving you a blowjob? How did that feel? Has she ever put her bubble gum around your cock like a condom, and then you had vaginal sex? Does it protect against STDs?

    ETA: The reason I ask is because I once was going down on my girlfriend while chewing gum, and I blew a bubble and it broke, all got stuck in her pubic hair, and we spent a long time trying to get it out, then eventually had to cut it out.

    Orlando Haunted House Attractions

    My friends and I are going to Orlando this weekend to celebrate my birthday, and we really want to visit a good Haunted House.

    Back in the old days, I loved going to Terror on Church Street. However, if I'm not mistaken, that place doesn't exist anymore.

    Upon doing a search, we have found only two Haunted Houses in Orlando: Haunted Grimm House and Terror in Orlando.

    Have any of you been to either of these? Or are there any other haunted attractions you can recommend?
