1) What do you have on your computer desk (if you have one)?

2) What are some things that you ALWAYS have with you when you leave the house?

3) For those of you who wear makeup, what makeup do you use daily?

4) Do you use anything in your hair to style it? What is your usual hairstyle?

5) Who was your favorite teacher? When did you have them? What was it that made them so great?

6) Why am I having so much trouble finding a job? I'm doing some work for my SO's mother to get by, but I've been applying everywhere that has a help wanted sign and joined a website that alerts me whenever a job opens up in my area. Why isn't anything working for me?

1- I'm going to bed cuz I feel ill, will you miss me? ;P
2- When I wake up, what should I do if I still feel nauseated, aside from call in to work to say I'm dying?
3- How big of a nerd would I be if I played Magic The Gathering Online? I just came across it tonight, and it looks... interesting, I guess would be the word.
4- How big of a nerd do you find YOURSELF to be in general? :)

1. Its 1:49am, you cant sleep, and you have your first day at a new job that morning. What do you do?

2. You haven't talked to your mother in 2 years because she left on your birthday and has yet to come back due to the fact she was cheating on her husband (your father) of 21 years.. She then calls you on your cell phone and continues to tell you that she loves you and that she wishes to see you. When you tell her no, she goes into a spiral of how much a failure you are and that your not going to make anything of yourself. She is saying this because she heard that you no longer attend the local high school due to the fact you do an alternative schooling program in which you home school yourself. How do you react?

3. How do you like your eggs?

4. What is the craziest thing you have ever found on the side of the road while taking a walk?

5. Have you ever attended a summer dance intensive camp? What was it like?

i hate it when that happens.

Ever had a dream where you were dating someone or being very romantic with them? Even if you had never met them before?

If so, after waking up did you feel like you really did like/love them and had feelings for that person whether or not they existed?

Wikipedia or Google, which do you check first? (Assuming the topic is found on both, of course.)

And, if using Wikipedia, do you always check the article's sources?

Which is more reliable?

Wedding Rings

Here's something I've been wondering for a while. In the contemporary American hetrosexual tradition (and possibly other traditions as well, but that's just the frame of reference I'm operating in), if a dude wants to marry a chick, he asks her and when he asks her he gives her an engagement ring (usually expensive, diamonds, blah blah blah). Then later, when dude and chick get married, as part of the ceremony, dude and chick give each other rings. Here are my questions:

1) Does dude give chick the same ring at the wedding he gave her for engagement, or a different ring?
2) If it's a different ring, which one does she wear? Both? On different fingers or the same finger?
3) Where does dude's ring come from? Does chick buy it for him? Does he have to buy it himself? Does it come with the ring he gets chick, like some sort of combo deal?

I realize everyone does different stuff with weddings, as they should, but I was curious about the real old school Emily Post traditional guidelines.

Two little blurbs in my morning news

I wake up to a number of alarms but the first one is the news and it stays on for 3 hours. Figure that the talking, over music, will help jumpstart my brain. This morning worked pretty well but only two things really stuck with me...the first of which I was regrettably not quite awake enough to register.
  • Somebody relatively famous, at the age of 33, died of a drug overdose this past weekend. I've skimmed online news services but I haven't figured out who it was yet.

  • Girl Scout cookies are being sold again but despite the assurances they've given with a new recipe, they still have just as many trans·fats in them as before.

Anybody know who the famous guy was that kicked the bucket?

Not very. The only meal I plan in advance at all really is dinner.

Vacations

I'm coming up on my golden birthday, and it also happens to be my 21st birthday ( American Citizen so it means happy drink drink time ) and I'm trying to think up ideas for a trip, and would like some imput.

1. Have you ever been on a cruise? How was it?

2. Have you ever been to Vegas? How much did you lose? Did you like it there?

3. If you have been to/on both, how would you compare the two?

4. Do you have any other ideas for a 21st birthday trip that would cost under $1,000?

Thankies!!
I had also thought of Disney world, but since I'd be going with my mother ( Lame ) to do a belated celebration of her 50th B-day, that wouldn't really work.

Do you find it annoying when someone in TQC asks a question that has only ONE correct answer.. (i.e. not an opinion type of question) and someone on the thread gives the answer.. then after that there are 38273948 more comments with the same answer? So like.. the other people on the thread don't even look to see if it's been answered, they just have to chime in to prove that they know it too and annoy the poster with 38273948 answers of the very same thing?

Yeah, a little annoying and amusing at the same time :)

ive checked out the past posts about break ups.. so dont kill me for posting this.


im wondering how you get over a break up? not that its a bad breakup.. it just sucks. once you've gotten used to that person and the little things you do with eachother [random texts, phone calls, blahblahblah], it becomes difficult to not have those things.

also, in getting into a relationship with a best friend, after the relationship is over, are you still best friends? is there a way to seperate the friendship from the romantic relationship? because that's what i'd like to do.. but im not sure if its actually possible. im working on it, but the urge to rip his face off becomes just so overwhealming, its hard to agree to go to a show with him.


i apologize if you guys are sick of this kind of thing. im just looking for outside perspective and input. my friends.. well, i dont feel like talking/asking/explaining anything to them at all.

EDIT:
one more question.. can women and men really be best friends? some sitcom said it's not possible.. whattaya think?

Do you feel that using the words "gay" or "retarded" to describe something (like an inanimate object, album, or film) is bad?

Do you feel that using the word "lame" to describe something (like an object, album, or film) is worse, as bad, or not bad at all?

Why or why not?

Some lj communities have already banned the first two words (or give warnings when community members use them in posts and comments), but some are starting to ban the last word. What do you think of that? Is that PC out of control?

VIOLENCE!!

1- I'm in a very violent mood today. I'm also having my quite late monthly-bleeding-week. Coincidence?

2- What fills you with rage like nothing else?

3- Do you say awful things that you actually mean (and may act on, if applicable), or is it all just talk?

4- Last violent act/thought you've done/had?

5- If public stonings were still commonplace in your part of the world, would you participate? Would it matter the crime that the person commited?

6- Death penalty, for or against? What crime deserves lethal injection?

Mine:
1- I blame lack of chocolate.
2- YOUR FACE. :O I dunno. Pain of the internal sort seems to get me going.
3- If I was a LITTLE more insane, I'd likely have killed many people by now. No drugs for meeee.
4- Throwing overly PC people in front of cars. Lulz.
5- YES. No. It'd be like a party! WITH DEATH!!
6- Everyone who does a SELFISH crime should die. Murder, child porn, etc etc.

I'm at a loss to what I should even be looking for.

I'm fairly certain it could be described as native chanting, or something of that sort. What would I look for though?

Native Canadians? Different Indian tribe names of the north? :( Is there even a GENRE that covers native chant music that's been techno-ized?

Can you tell the Olsen twins apart?
Apparently they're fraternal twins, but they look pretty close to indentical if you ask me. What about when they were kids on Full House?

On the show Scrubs, they're interns for a year, then residents for two more years. Then in the 4th year, Elliot and JD are "Chief Residents" even though they're not residents anymore. Can anyone explain this? Is this something that hospitals usually have or is it just a TV show thing? Wouldn't most doctors leave their teaching hospital when their residency is over?

Would you rather have a young intern doctor treat you, or a frail old doctor in his 80's?

I saw Madonna's 'Vogue' video on tv the other day and saw a shot where she was wearing dark lipstick and bit her lip, yet had nothing on her teeth and none of the lipstick came off/smudged. What kind of miracle lipstick works that good?

A person has lots of sex with multiple partners. They don't like committing to a long term relationship and sometimes have sex with people who they can't even name the next day. They always use protection, though, and get tested regularly. They know they've broken hearts, but they've always been up front about wanting no strings attached and feel no guilt for it.

If that person was a man, what would you think of him?
If that person was a woman, what would you think of her?

My drawing professor keeps telling me to put more air into my drawings, but only explains air with floaty flitty words that still don't interpret what he wants. What do you think air is in a drawing?

i've seen this icon a few times: it say that if you are against gay marriage because of what the bible says, then you should also be against other certain things. then there are a list of hilarious things you should shun (i think bread was one of them..?) and it cites where in the bible it's from.
does anyone have this list or icon? i'm trying to write a paper explaining why i'm for gay marriage.

Imagine there's a marathon, and you've been training for it. You've never run a marathon before, but you start running everyday to build up our endurance, speed, etc, etc, and you keep beating personal records and you begin to stand a real chance at making it to the top ten finalists, like a true underdog story.

Then, the day before the marathon, somebody says you're disqualified, for an insane requirement you didn't know about. Like. You're not tall enough, or something. :| And even if you end up in the top ten, they won't tell you, or they won't acknowledge it in any way. (It's the kind of race even you won't know who's first and who's last because everyone's doing laps or something.)

Will you still run? Why?

Is it normal for people to scream obscene propositions at people waiting at bus stops? It seems to happen to me whatever state I'm in, so I don't think it's a regional thing.

Ringtones

Hi. I just bought my very first cell phone today. It's a Motorola RAZR. Like I said, this is my first cell phone and I'm not sure how likely or unlikely this is going to be but are there any websites that send free ringtones and or wallpapers to your cell phone? I found one but I wasn't in the right area and for all I know it might have been a scam.

Thanks in advance..

AIM

I'm at my wit's end, and Google isn't working its usual magic. Neither is the AIM Help Service, so don't suggest that -- unless I'm completely blind, I couldn't find the solution. Mind you, I have a prior history of being rather technologically inept, although I think I know how to do internet and help section searches.

I've gotten another AIM screenname to use for roleplaying purposes, and I want to link it with my current screenname. The instructions I've found all say "Under MY AIM on your Buddy List menu, click Manage Linked Screennames." Sounds simple enough, right? Except for the fairly problematic fact that I can't find MY AIM on my Buddy List menu or anywhere.

As I said before, I'm no expert on technological stuff, so it is quite possible there is something glaring that I am missing. If so, feel free to snark me ruthlessly after you've pointed out the right procedure.

So, where's MY AIM? Why has it disappeared? What can I do, if anything, to get it back? Thanks.

EDIT: SOLVED thanks to colourmered08.

1. You're at the bar or a coffee shop or some random place where people can chit chat. Someone approaches you and you end up having an interesting conversation with them that lasts over an hour. They mentioned that they've been travelling, but suddenly they tell you they're running low on money and would you be wildly oppposed to the idea of them spending the night on your couch? Are there any reasons you'd be more or less inclined to say yes?

2. Have you ever been injured at a concert?

3. Have you ever listened to or heard of Les Rallizes Dénudés?

4. Do you ever draw things on MS Paint when you're bored? Do you have any MS Paint artwork you'd like to share?

5. What's your favorite picture involving crossdressing? Post it, if you can. Or just be descriptive!

Help a girl out!

A pipe has burst in our house, so there is no heating or hot water.  This pipe is in the bathroom so I can't get in there to wash.  I don't have anywhere else to go for a wash.  Its freaking me out and making me feel itchy.  Even though I know it's being fixed tomorrow I feel squicky.

My options are:

- throw baby wipes on the bedroom floor and roll around till I feel cleaner

- stand in the freezing kitchen, wash bits of myself in cold water, then put my warm (but not-so-clean) pyjamas back on

-revel in my stinkiness

- take so much tramadol and cold medicine so that I don't care, and watch Top Gear


What should I do?  What would you do?  

Super-duper bonus question: is it ethical to put my bunnyrabbits inside cushion covers and use them as hot water bottles?

Corporate Futures

What does everyone think about the future of Sony? Sony has been reeling for years in several areas(such as the Lithium battery recall on Vaio units, or weak mp3 sales) and have now rested all of their hopes on the ps3(and arrogant about it, too) as some sort of last stand. Will Sony be as big...or will it just be a division specializing in certain products? Or will it be gone altogether 5 years from now? With Microsoft's 360 library(and controller) improving in terms of quality, and the the return of Nintendo to try and retake the crown(to go along with their GBA and DS sales), will Sony be able to stay in the video game industry?



Oh...and no, I'm not a fanboy of Sony. I own a PS2, Xbox/360, and DS(Phoenix Wright, WOO!). I ask this because of how wide open the video game market is at the moment...and all the troubles Sony has had outside of the industry. =)

class rings.

I'm a junior in college. (or at least that's what they're telling me.) And I don't want the "official" class ring of my school because it looks.. cheesy. And I'm not all that attached to my school anyway.

So I've been looking around online. And it looks like college rings in general, even the ones you can personalize, are really expensive. I'm not about to shell out $600 for one. But the high school ones are more affordable.

I already have a high school ring. I'd like to get another high school ring, except personalize it with either my college or my major instead of my high school. Think I could do this? I'm probably going to go through a local Balfour dealer, and no I haven't talked to them yet.

Mashed 'taters.

I'm making mashed potatoes, but I have a problem... seemingly nothing to mash them with.

So, if you didn't have a potato masher (or a hammer) around, how would you mash them? You can use ordinary kitchen utensils.

Because my mom and I were just discussing animals and why certain people prefer one type to another:

1. Are you a guy or a girl?

2. As a primary pet to keep, do you like dogs or cats more? (If anything else, please specify.)

3. Why do you like these animals over others? Or why do you like them in general?

4. a. Pure-breds or mutts? (This works for cats too, though I expect most answers will be for dogs.)
    b. Favorite breed?

5. Do you think gender has any effect on the type of pets/animals you prefer for house-mates?

"I love my Church, and I'm a Catholic who was raised by intellectuals, who were very devout. What is worthy of satire is the misuse of religion for destructive or political gains. That's totally different from the Word, the blood, the body, and the Christ. His kingdom is not of this earth." - Stephen Colbert

I've heard that the birth control pill Seasonale, which promises you only get your period four times a year, actually gives you REALLY long periods. What a scam, right? I'd rather get a regular period all year than four extra-long ones! So, is Loestrin similarly crappy?

Business Formal Attire.

I've tried on thousands of business suits and I hate them all. They all have darts in them in the chest, and well.. I don't have much by way of chesticles, yanno? Are there any alternatives for business formal for women? I've got a bunch of interviews and such coming up and I need to pull off snazzy.

If there aren't, what should I look for in a suit? I like plain and minimalist stuff.

Have you ever applied for a job you knew you didn't want but were desperate for gainful employment? How did you fake the interviewer into believing that you wanted the job?
