1.Does anyone shop at

I put two things in my shopping cart and for payment options, they had two buttons. One had Paypal, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover icons and the other button just said "Other." I chose the first button thinking I could pay with my Visa. Wrong! It put me in as PayPal. I don't have a PayPal account and I never will (because PayPal is evil and corrupt and I don't trust them) and this effing site didn't even tell me that this was the end-all page. So now it says I have to pay these sellers by PayPal.

2. What should I do, TQC? I emailed both of the sellers explaining that I was mislead by the site and can't pay with PayPal and asked if we could work something else out.

3. Why in god's name would a site not allow you to go back and change details or at least tell you when you're finalizing the order?

4. Are there any other good places online to find eclectic jewelry?

Where can I upload audio and get a Flash link to embed into LJ entries? I saw someone do this once on a messageboard, but now I can't find the place I saw it at, and I don't remember the name of the site. I'm trying to do an audio blog, and the code that usually works to embed sound into a webpage won't work on LJ.

In season 5 of Family Guy, in the episode titled "Chick Cancer," did Alan Alda do the voice of Victor, the young child actor? I tried looking it up on, but the character wasn't even listed, and under Alan Alda's profile, it didn't say anything about Family Guy. It really sounded like him though.

Also, has anyone ever seen the short, independant video titled "Needle Anus?" It is absolutely rediculous, and so stupid you can't help but laugh. If you haven't seen it, you really should.

You know how everyone always fantasizes about true love and finding that special someone, yadda yadda yadda etc.
Do you ever have the feeling you're most likely going to end up alone?
Are you okay with that?
I really think I am, and in a strange way, that's reassuring.

1. What is your favorite kind of Chex Mix?

I love Adam and Carrie. My favorite episode was the one from Shark Week

4. What do you usually do when you can't go to sleep at night?

Think for me TQC!

1. You discuss your relationship with a good friend (something I do with very few people, I like my privacy), good friend tells you how she was discussing what you told her with her boyfriend. Would this make you uncomfortable?

It certainly made me uncomfortable, especially since I've told her before "The less people involved in my business, the better."

Do I tell her that really bothered me? Or, do I just keep my mouth shut with her? I'm thinking the latter, but that leads me to the next question.

2. Do you find that there seems to be competition amidst friends and their relationships? Aforementioned friend always gives this vibe that she's trying to claim her relationship as superior. Having never had to deal with people acting like this, I'm wondering if I should just get over my feelings of annoyance and continue smiling and nodding as she preaches the awesomeness of her boyfriend, or express my annoyance?

3. Should I try espresso for the first time tomorrow in lieu of my usual two tall cups of coffee?

Illness and Work

So, your wife has just had two days off from work sick. You have missed a day of work last week. You have the more specialized career, but you know most employers will not let you have a third day off without a doctor's slip.

But now your child is sick, and one of you must call in to stay home and watch him.

Who should stay home?

1. Do you believe in that "one and only"? You only fall in love once, there is that one person that was put on this earth just for you? Think about it, out of several billion people how could you possibly get so lucky to find that one "special" person?

2. What do you do when there isn't anyone watching?

3. Does the gas indicator in your car remind you of a gallon of milk? Maybe I shouldn't skip breakfast?

4. What is the best remedy for severely chapped lips? My lips have been breaking and chapping for the last three months and every time they start to "grow" back in I can't help but bite the excess skin off.

5. Everyone is guilty of at some point trash-talking about another. Do you ever wonder what they say about you?


ok... Say your not spooning exactly but the guy is laying on his back and your laying up against his side on your side with one of  your  arms across his chest, what do you do with your arm that is sort of under you? Where do you put it so it's not uncomfortable?

Exactly what's the purpose of being a boyfriend or girlfriend? Some can say it's a stepping stone towards marriage.. or a make believe marriage. Other can say it's dedication and love towards a person. I kind of say it's access to sex.

So what do you think? What's the philosoophy behind this x-friend thing?

Do you watch any talk shows?
Not really. I'm a cooking show girl.

What is your current obsession?
Lush cosmetics. OMG lush.

For the straight/mostly straight girls: Do you wear anything with rainbows on it?
I'm mostly straight, and I like to wear rainbow things. I think they are pretty. I also support gay rights, so it's kind of an homage to that as well.

Do you think that dogs that attack/kill other animals/dogs should be euthanized? If not, what should be done, if anything?
I think that they should be visited by a behaviorist, the owners should be fined, and if it happens again, the dog should be removed from the home. I only think dogs should be euthanized that attack humans with no warning or for no reason (such as sickness, being startled) should be euthanized.

Have you ever seen the testicles that people hang on the back of their trucks? Some places want to ban them. What do you think?
I think they are funny, but kind of redneckish. I wouldn't ever sport them.

What kind of food do you feed your pets?
My dogs are on Nutro Light to get them slimmed down for summer, and my cats are on Nutro Natural Choice Indoor Cat formula. It makes the litter box so much less stinky!

Scenario 1: You've found someone you've really grown fancy for. You start to date. Before the relationship gets too intimate your partner reveals they have herpes. Would you stay with them if your feelings were that deep? How would the sex part work out?

Scenario 2: You find out you have herpes. Do you continue to date normally with no sex? Do you give up and assume no one will want to spend their life with you and chance getting herpes too?

Yeah, I've seen too many of those herpes commercials and I'm just really curious -_-.

Hello there.. I have this black and white striped shirt. It's 95% cotton and 5% spandex. The stripes aren't thick, about a centimeter (as seen in userpic). Would it be okay throw it in with the whites and bleach it, or should I wash it with the colors?

Unusual question.

There's something I'm pretty sure I've heard/seen in a TV commercial for an American financial company of some sort (Merill Lynch or Prudential - something like that). It's a little audio sting at the end of the ad, and it's just a little sound clip that sounds like it could be, say, two pieces of ceramics (like two coffee mugs or something) hitting one another.

I know it sounds odd, but I know I've heard this in an ad before. Anyone know which company I'm talking about? Or - even better - a place where these ads can be viewed or heard online?

I have this friend and he smells.  He.really.stinks.  He doesn't shower ever day, and he barely showers once a week.  He wears the same pants and the same sweatshirt every single day, and those are cleaned even less than he is.  Everyone in our group of friends agrees that he smells terrible!  I tried saying he should shower more, and he was like "I SHOWER LIKE EVERY OTHER DAY."  (He wouldn't talk to me for two weeks).  I know he was lying because the caked on grease in his hair gives him away.  A couple of other people in our little group have tried to tell him the same thing, but he says that he thinks he showers enough.  It's not like he doesn't have a house or access to a shower or anything, so it really is puzzling!

1) Why won't he shower?!
2) Have you ever had a smelly friend?
3) How do we get him to bathe more than once a week?!

4. (This is something I think about a lot, ever since an ex boyfriend killed himself, leaving behind a mother with whom he had had a remarkable relationship. But I may phrase it weird or not explain myself, so just ask if it's confusing).

Do you believe that we should stay alive for our loved ones? If so, do you believe that this type of thinking can actually lead to a happier life? Or do you think that other people's love should keep you alive? Is that the same thing?

5. When you see a certain cliche proven wrong(like... cats and dogs curling up together even though they should hate each other, or a sweet little old grandma wearing biker clothes) do you get weirdly nostalgic for like... the classic cliche, even though a dog and cat loving each other, and a biker grandma, are awesome? Feel free to think of other "cliches."

Conversely, when you see a cliche or proverb acted out, like a dog chasing a mailman or for lack of a better idea, someone literally crying because they spilled milk, etc, do you get a thrill for seeing something like that?

Do you like to read? Did you read as a child? Did your parent(s) read to you?

If you like to read, do you prefer a light-hearted, entertaining book or one that sucks you in and whips you through the storyline before spitting you out so hard that you're left sitting and wondering what the hell just happened?

Is there one book in particular that had a major impact on your life?

Sort of an ipod related question. Sry.

So my ipod is screwing up, and I plan on going to the store to see if they'll replace it for me, or fix it, at least. But in case they refuse (and they may, because I know from past experiance that many of the people who work there are royal jerkoffs), should I just get another ipod, or another brand of mp3 player? Any specific brand?

Edit: Problem solved! I'm still interested in knowing which brands of mp3 player you guys think are better than apple though. :>

When using acronyms, do you treat them as if they are the word it stands for, or as a word in itself. ok, so this isn't very clear. i'll give an example.

if you were going to call livejournal 'LJ', would you write "a LJ" (because you're thinking of it as the word/s livejournal) or "an LJ" (because you're thinking of it as the letters EL JAY).

i would say an LJ because if i was to say it out loud i would say 'el jay' and so it should have 'an' before a vowel sound.
and it'd be the same kind of thing if it's like STI, FLG or whatever.
