And for fun!
What're you watching/listening to RIGHT NOW?
Every Time I Die / Easy Tiger.
Thanks guys. :]
So, TQC, can you distract me until I calm down?
Any funny youtube vids you'd like to share?
Simple but entertaining computer games?
i'm bored out of my mind and should be sleeping, but i'm not..
Jumping in a pool counts as bathing.
I'm working on a record.
I just really like to annoy my friends.
For me, it has to be, hands down, Paul McCartney's Memory Almost Full. Best album of his in years.
When you wake up during the night and can't get back to sleep, what do you do?
Can you tell I just woke up because I remembered something important I had forgotten to do? -_-
Am I still coherent at this hour?
or any videos for that matter
just give me something entertaining :)
2.) What would you do with your own breathalyzer?
3.) My nose has started running/dripping. The consistency of what drips out is very watery, and I can't seem to blow anything out. It's like my nose is a little stream. I've never experienced this before. Have you? What should I do?
What's so great about where you chose?
2) Do you think honesty is the best policy?
3) Can you be friends with people who won't at least consider your honest opinion?
4) Do you personally prefer to hear honest answers to your questions or do you like things all sugar-coated and happy-like?
What's the last thing you did that signaled a new beginning for you?
This may or may not make sense so after I cross the street and get my coffee I may have to edit it.
2. Any plans for the weekend?
3. What name do you call yourself when you talk to yourself? Is this different than the name most people call you by?
4. It's payday!! Where should I go out to eat tonight to blow all this money they're giving me? Bills? What bills? I don't want to pay those!
1. What do you do for an SO when he/she is sick?
2. a. What are your favorite "oh my god it's so hot and humid I'm going to die, but I still want to look decent and not be naked" clothes for being outside in the summer?
2. b. What kind of underwear do you wear when you've got to be outside and your shoes are melting into the sidewalk?
I always wore jeans and t-shirts until this summer. Now I go for shorts and thin shirts or tank tops when I can manage. It is so unpleasantly hot. >:(
Also, There is a young man that works in my building and he is very nice to me. He smiles when he looks at me and sometimes when he walks by it seems he tries to not look at me and also is trying not to smile. (he has a little grin on his face and i see his eyes bounce to the left, where i am, and then back) This morning he was practically running to open the door for me.
So my questions are...do you think this kid has a slight crush on me? and Why does my boyfriend hate to hear about this kind of stuff?? Yet, if he hears me tell someone else he gets upset because I didn't tell him?
Who else LOVES the show The Office? And Scrubs? Who else can't wait until these shows come back on?
I'm dying here waiting to see.....gah!
a. Are they even really the spoiler? Cause, I haven't really seen anyone throwing a fit over them...
2. Has anyone ever been on Wellbutrin? My doc put me on it yesterday and I haven't taken them yet.
a. What sort of things can I expect?
3. Why is my sociology class so boring!?
4. Would you rather have sex with Han Solo or Indiana Jones?
So if one gets millions of your tax dollars, do you want both to get your tax dollars?
Do you want neither to get your tax dollars?
Why should or shouldn't all kinds of pregnancy method clinics have equal funding from the government?
Let's try to keep the debate/ conversation respectable folks! :)
**edit** woah, I didn't see all the abortion questions in here today..that's weird. Wonder why it's on the brain. I heard a few things on a radio program yesterday about bills going through for funding, etc etc..
Is it a black and white issue, or do you think there is a grey area?
Does anyone recall that photographer who has the weird-looking puppet, and the most known picture is of a bunch of guys and the puppet pouring milk on a woman in a shower?
Do his pictures disturb you?
If your SO tries to have sex with you at 4am and you are sleeping, do you have sex, or tell them that you're sleeping?
What is the average price of a house where you live?
Where do you live?
What was the amount of your biggest paycheck for one week?
What do you wear to work?
Do you sleep with the tv on or off?
I have no bedtime routine, and I sleep with my tv on. I don't like it when it's really quiet.
a. chase them with a shovel out of backyard
b. appear out of nowhere chanting the script from Evil Dead
c. fight it out, ninja style
calling them cops isn't the answer though. the cops have been here for trafficing..because there was about 5-6 cars parked on the side of our house with people comming in and out of the backgate and our lovely neighbors decided the cops should be involved.
2. what are the lamest rules you've ever been told to avide by, but broke anyways?
I was on house arrest. we weren't SUPPOSED to use the internet, I did anyways..whenever they showed up I'd turn off my monitor and pretended I was never on :P
I had to be 13 or 14, and it was Rob Zombie's "Living Dead Girl"
What is your favourite feel good movie?
PS--how do you get to the AIM chat? I wanna join in, but can't figure out how.
Whether its good or bad, what has affected it?
Anyone have any idead how to improve?
removing facial hair for me.
We are watching them at work to pass time, and any suggestions are appreciated. preferrably funny ones!
P.S. We have no sound, so...haha
What is the population density where you live?
What type of community is it? (rural, suburban, urban)
Where do you live?
1. 1615.2 people per square mile.
3. Parker, CO.
Following the tradition of the night, what color is your tongue? Post a pic, if you'd like. I guess. If you have nothing better to do. Which I assume you don't.
Brownie points for people who use food coloring or candy to turn your tongue a different color....?
Would you like to do a photo scavenger hunt?
In the room you are currently in can you find (and photograph and share) the following items?
a. A toy/stuffed animal/doll with the color red on it somewhere.
b. A hat/head-covering of any sort.
c. A photograph (that's right, photograph the photograph!).
d. A measuring device.
e. Something purple.
- Do you think this is a little over the top?
- If you're a parent/guardian with kids under legal age, or an older sibling with a brother or sister under legal age, what are your rules concerning your kids' activity on the internet? Do you care if they have MySpace or something similar?
- Can you suggest anything I can do to intervene here and stop our mother from totally taking over my brother's Internet Life, yet still keep the kid safe? I've been thinking of sitting him down and having a talk to him about what you really should be careful of online (when my mother got home last night the first thing she said to him was, "ARE YOU HANDING OUT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS ON YOUR CYBERSPACE?", so she's not exactly a good authority), but in the meantime can you suggest anything for me to say to my mother to get her to back off a bit?
Any stories that jump to mind?
I'm in a bit of an awkward situation with a friend of mine, he is being ridiculously forward, wanting a lot more than just friendship. Everything he does/says has something to do with me. His MSN/Facebok status, how he walks to his lectures incase we're going the same way, the TV shows he stays up and watches so I might pop round for a viewing...he's forever asking mutual friends' advice on how he can get me to feel the same & calls/tects me at least 5 times a day regardless of my replies.The thing is I have a boyfriend, and he knows it's not going to happen with him. Apparently he's getting very depressed because he can't handle the fact I'm staying with 'ski wanker dude'- what he calls my boy. How terribly mature of him.
How would you handle this? Would you be comfortable with staying friends with someone who had these inappropriate feelings for you? Would you tell your boyfriend?
I've never felt that strongly about someone before without them returning the feeling, but I've definitely had some kind of feeings for guys before knowing it wouldn't go anywhere..
I'd never be brave about it though, i'm the sort of girl who will let things lie & pass rather than make a move.
Have you done this same thing before?
Since, it's almost lunch time, and I'm so hungry I think that is what made me forget my question, what are you eatting/doing for lunch?
Do any of you own a bluetooth headpiece? If yes, do you feel akward, like people think you are talking to yourself?
I think I look crazy in my picture/icon...crazy bad...do you?
haha. everytime my boyfriend see's it, he just laughs and laughs and says I don't look um...very pretty there, you actually look...kinda scary. I agree.
Do any of you have any crazy/silly/bad picture/icons of yourself that you'd care to share??
edit! ok, called a friend, he said no, as i sadly suspected.
new question! if the image under the cut were a piece of bacon, what would you do with it?
2. What was the last item of clothing you had tailor made for you?
3. Are cheddar cheese, apple and popcorn together a good snack?
4. What is something(s) you are putting off doing at the moment?
1. Not me, but apparently, it freaks my Asian students out. They ALL had to comment today on how Ms N's eyebrows are GONE! Heh.
2. A load of stuff. 12 skirts and about 7 tops. I love China.
3. Yes...one of my favourites.
4. Work. Calling Ms Mok about the job mess up from yesterday.
So, should I be:
A.) Happy that I am "officially" done
B.) Nervous and upset about exams
I can't leave the house unless I decide to like go for a run. I was thinking of studying first, cleaning, and then reading. But that seems lame.
Any fun suggestions?
Pictures are a plus.
1) What do you prefer, white or brown bread?
2) Do you eat/like the crust pieces?
3) Do you like seeded bread?
1) Brown. It has more texture
2) I love the crust pieces. Everyone gives them to me ^__^
3) It's my favourite kind
2) Have you watched a movie at a drive-in or any other type of outdoor movie theater?
3) What's the funniest/strangest warning sign or label that you've seen? (pictures optional)
she spent three days out of twenty three days in prison.
however now shes spending 40 adys under house arrest.
which would you rather:
23 days in jail, or house arrest for 40?
jail = better story
What did they do?
Who is an important peace writer or filmmaker?
No this is not my homework, but it is a starting point for part of my homework.
I have a pot luck tomorrow at work. What should I bring? I've already taken my staple pot luck dishes. I'd like to take something sweet/fruity.
2.) If you do, what's your favorite? Air guitar, air drums, air bass, air accordion?
3.) If there was a contest for playing you pretend instrument of choice, would you participate? Would you go to size up the competition for next year?
4.) Anyone wanna start a wicked awesome air band with me?
i'm in southern Wisconsin and they've been saying since last night that we're going to have some really severe storms today and let me tell you, they ain't lyin'. apparently there is/is going to be a Derecho. 9 years ago there was one and winds got to 128 mph. in WISCONSIN, sans tornadoes. they're sending kids home 2 1/2 hours early in smaller towns outside where i am. it's been windy since last night and it's getting pretty bad. i had my clothes out drying on the line and they started blowing away so i had to bring everything in.
it's still sunny right now, though :D
She's charcoal grey, with a small white patch under her chin and on one of her paws. She was found on the roof, her mother was run over by a car and seems to have a tendency to follow me around.
Yes. Strawberries and peaches.
2. I have already googled this. I have a vertical line on the screen of my laptop. Is this the beginning of the end?
3. Have you ever seen any of the following bands: Santogold, Black Moth Super Rainbow? If so, were they any good/worth seeing?
4. What is your favorite sunscreen that isn't oily and doesn't smell terrible?
I have worn long sleeves and long pants for the last 6 years so I haven't really bothered with sunscreen except for the kind I use everyday on my face.
Also, I'm a vegetarian and he loves meat, but this isn't really a problem anywhere. I'd rather him enjoy the meal than me, anyway.
(Also, if you are recommending restaurants...! I don't want anything expensive, and we probably won't go out of Manhattan, unless it's near something else we want to see.)
Thanks a lot.
Oh- has anyone ever been on The Beast? How was it?
I'm new to it, and don't exactly know how everything works yet. Is there a way to specify what kind of book you want? Because I want a copy of a certain book, but I want it hardcover and most of the descriptions of available copies don't tell me if it's hardcover or paperback (the only one that does is, in fact, a paperback). Is there a way to do this? When I typed in my list of available books, you could pick from a dropdown menu hardcover/paperback/ect, so why can't I see which it is before I decide to ask for it?
If not, is there a way I can get in contact with the person to ask them?
I have a job interview today. The receptionist on the phone told me to dress nice (well, that one's a bit obvious), be at least fifteen minutes early, bring a pen and pad of paper to take notes, and she said that if it went well it could last up to ninety minutes.
I've never had an interview as intensive as this. Do you guys have any tips about this sort of thing? I'm so nervous!
2)was not really worth asking
3)How many lapdances have you witnessed in person? Of that number, how many were for yourself?
2) What would you like your funeral to be like?
I have to go to the post office, but it's blazing hot out. I tend to sweat a lot. Should I wait and shower when I get back, and go ratty, or should I shower now and deal with the sweat? (deodorant/anti-perspirant don't seem to work well, but I can't see a doctor--no insurance. It sucks because I sweat all manly and it's really un-feminine.)
ETA: Do you think there should be a special place in hell for people like this?
That's just wrong...to steal from a grieving mother while she's at her SON'S FUNERAL. Sheesh.
1. What did you do your last day of high school to celebrate?
2. Did you cry at all?
3. What did you get for graduation?
( Collapse )
do you all have any tips? is there something I can regularly take or a regiment that you've heard of that will help me build up my immune system?
2. i had to fill out a form today that asked what color my eyes are. choices were brown, green, blue, grey, hazel, pink (for the albinos?), and maroon. does anyone have maroon eyes? have you ever seen/met anyone with maroon eyes?
Lets say you're an employee of the state, and you violate your contract with the state in a fairly egregious manner. Now, lets say that the employer brings a disciplinary charge against you, but the arbitrator throws it out for a procedural issue and doesn't rule on whether you are guilty or not guilty. You then retire after the ruling by the arbitrator is handed down.
Do you think that the employer can bring a new disciplinary charge after you're retired? Do you think they should be able to? Why?
Have you ever been fired from a job? Why? Did you seek revenge or do anything silly your last day there?
Let's say abortion *is* illegal. What should a woman with an unwanted pregnancy do with the baby once she has it, if she does not want to keep it?
Do you think that people who can't handle the consequences of a potential pregnancy should just close their legs so they don't become a drain on the government?
For the record, I use Trillian.
What are some of them?
What about Shia LaBeouf?
ok ok, also, John Cusack?
what about jack black?
2. Have you ever sent an email that you thought was quite intelligent but right after it was sent,you realise how stupid it had sounded and you end up kicking yourself?
Backstory: I was having a conversation with a friend and realised that to me jealousy is extremely physical. I'll begin to feel like I'm going to throw up, I get terrible shakes and often I'll be unable to breathe and end up curled in a ball on the floor in a sheer state of panic.
What TQC member has changed your perspective or way of thinking in a positive way? How?
What TQC member has changed your perspective or way of thinking in a negative way? How?
Do you wear a watch everyday?
Does the fact the TQC allows just about everyone to become and remain a member enhance or detract from the appeal of the community, in your opinion?
How tired are you of hearing about this wonderful baby boy I'm about to have? 1 being none at all.
Also, not that I'm encouraging or plan on illegally downloading but are there any GOOD lj ska sharing communities or music blogs? I've graduated from college and no longer have access to my Uni's radio station and it's righteous ska selection.
1) Do you like to look at other people icons just for fun?
2) What's the most you think you've seen for one person? An estimate is fine, no need to count each one.
3) How many icons do you have?
2. can you carry on DPNs (double pointed knitting needles)?
3. What TV show do you watch/TiVo regularly but are too embarrassed to tell your friends?
- If you brush your teeth, floss and use mouthwash, what order do you do that in?
- How many times a day do you use mouthwash? What times?
- What flavor/brand do you use? Does it taste nasty, or is it pretty decent?
My toe. Damn Mosquito bite
What other artists do you recommend? Albums? Or just songs that I can DL off of iTunes? I like all kinds of music, to be honest.
2) Have you ever had your car booted or been with someone who's car was booted? Why?
What do you think is in my package?
I hope it's birthday presents... I'm greedy today!
Do you think if my neighbor wasn't going to be home ever again after they got my package they should've tried dropping it off?
I'm not sure. I want to say yes, but I think I'd be annoyed if I had to deliver someone elses package to them. They are right across the hall though, literally 2 steps away.
What do you think of the practice of the postman delivering my packages to someone else and leaving a note in my mailbox?
2) what's something you don't understand?
3) tell me a lyric from your favorite song?
4) WAZZZZZZZZZZZZ UP!?
what is the
for example i have seen someone buying goats cheese, coca cola, and some form of fruit.
I check my friends page, facebook, gmail, and school email. Along with webcomics and stuff. And I've been trying to get into digg lately.
1. What's one thing you like least about your relationship with your SO?
2. What's one thing you like most about your relationship with your SO?
3. What's a good annoying thing to do to a person while they're sleeping?
1. Sometimes when we're having a conversation, she'll talk about something as if she knows all about it when she's actually not that educated on the topic.
2. She can ask me what sort of day I've had and I can go "It's just been like... *pause, make awkward hand gestures, pause again* You know what I mean?" and she knows what I mean.
3. The back of my brother's neck says "I'm a Doofus" in black Sharpie.
I've tried everything under the sun to get my largest and most treasured cat to use the little boxes we have in the basement. He just plain won't do it.
It's probably because he was an outside cat before, and finds the whole idea of litter boxes to be beneath him. If it weren't for the fact that we live on a busy street corner, I'd let him out to do his business. But, we do, and I'm terrified that he'll get hit.
Also, he's declawed. While I don't like the idea of letting a declawed animal outside, there's simply no other solution at this point. Either he goes outside, or he goes to live with somebody else.
Halp TQC! I love my kitty, but I can't go through this summer with a terrible smelling house.
And for those that are on this (US) side of the pond, is there a place where I can catch up on what the heck is going on? I somehow missed so much since the second to the last episode of last season and now and my On Demand doesn't have the back episodes so I can stop being so lost.
I've been a vegetarian for 4 years and I'm considering going back to meat. Or at least, chicken. Have any of you done this? Can it actually be bad for you? I've never really gotten a clear answer to the whole not-being-able-to-digest-meat thing...
I'm mainly just looking for stories here. This is such a big change for me.
What if you were three classes away?
ETA: Does it make a difference if it's a Masters instead of a Bachelor's degree?
2. What's your favorite commerical?
( Collapse )
2. If you've ever colored your hair, did you notice a difference in the way you were treated?
3. Is Final Fantasy X really worth playing to the ending?
( Collapse )
Anything you can tell me would be great. Thanks everyone.
What's some good resources for learning about cats? Books, websites, and so forth? What's something I absolutely must know, like don't feed them bananas because it will melt their eyeballs or something?
we can't think up a name, though. do you have any ideas as to how we can come up with one or what we can name it?
also, any suggestions as to what we could write about or do with it to make it more interesting?
How much do you loved missed connections?
Do you post them?
Do you respond to them?
2. how about underrated?
3. Go to davidsbridal.com, click on "dress your wedding," sign up and sign in, and go nuts. If you do this, would you post a link to (or preferably) screencap of what you designed? You are encouraged to explain whether it is the most hideous wedding you could have possibly created, your dream wedding, a re-creation of your actual wedding, whatever.
( Collapse )
(Besides the obvious Santa / Easter Bunny stuff.)
Do you have any suggestions on what I could make? Any recipes? FYI, I don't have a regular oven. I have a toaster oven.
2. I'm using glow in the dark paint. I bought clear glaze spray paint to use over it. The clear glaze can't deactivate the glow in the dark paint, can it? They are both Krylon and it doesn't mention it on either one of the packages or their website. It doesn't seem like it should but I worry.
So, TQC, Extreme Brownie cookies or Rocky Road cookies?
Or something else that I would love for you to tell me about in the comments.
ETA: Thanks for the help :) I went with the extreme brownies. It was an adventure, because I didn't realize that I didn't have some necessary equipment. They turned out delicious though.
Do you know of a simple mp3 editing program that I don't have to pay for?
P.S. For all interested parties I picked 'Baby Driver' by S&G.
Apparently it's been dead all day...
and why aren't YOU in the chat!?
Does it make you uncomfortable when a coworker or classmate (of your competitive sex) wears tight and thin pants that makes their ass look super smokin hot?
Do you ever wear tight and thin pants and revel in the fact that your ass looks super smokin hot?
Would you if your ass was super smokin hot?
TQC, can we see your smokin hot asses?
1. Have you ever asked someone to describe yourself, physically, on the internet?
2. Did they get it right?
3. What do you think I look like?
How do you think others see you?
How does this differ from how you see yourself?
I had a power outage the other day, which seemed to knock out my interent in both computers.
My dad somehow fixed this one (that is directly connected to the internet) yet, the other computer will not connect. The status says it is connected, yet i cannot access the web.
any thoughts on how to fix this?
Pictures are, of course, a plus.
The world's biggest modeling agency apparently found photos from my most recent photoshoot and asked the photographer - who will be shooting some of their models soon - to contact me with their contact info to contact them. I had no plans on submitting for any agencies until September so that in this over analytical and very critical business there would be zero excuses for anyone not to sign me. This is the biggest agency in the world.
They want my stats and I don't know how to fill it out. I don't want to miss this opportunity and don't really know what to put and want it all in my best advantage. I know some of you may hate me, but this is the most important thing in my life ever so I really want your help in telling me what you think - to my best advantage in this situation - the answers are.
What color are my eyes? How old am I?
I know, I know.. Just do it, right? It's not that easy!!
2. Do you regret it? Why?
3. Do you have a personal policy for defriending? Why?
( Collapse )
How do you deal with them?
ETA: Jeeze people, stop suggesting sex. Stupid internets.
What do you think of this activity?
eta: WHAT HAPPENED
-edit: What about the walls? They're a horrible shade of green now, which has to go.
Do you watch So You Think You Can Dance?
-I know a kid who made it to the top 34.
I don't like shoes. I go barefoot or wear flip flops a lot, especially in summer. This is not good for my feet's sexiness.
What is the best and/or quickest way to de-nastify my feet?
In particular, what are the best products for dry, cracked heels?
However, when I pulled it out of the freezer to cook it tonight, I was surprised to see that it had turned brown, instead of staying bright red.
Does this happen a lot? Is it still safe to eat?
I have a centennial cell phone with blue tooth or is there a place to get free ringtones for centennial? I tried 3gforfree.com but there's no way to do it for my carrier :(
2. What is the last thing someone said that made you say or think "No shit"?
3. Who is someone that you know whose name starts with a 'K'?
4. What color hair were you born with? (or had, once you started growing hair).
5. If you're a fan of the show House, what's your favorite House moment?
What's your favorite kind of mustache?
When you bone some girl, is the state of her roomm important toyou? Like whne it's messy, are you all "aw hell no<" or whatever?
I'm just curiou cuz my room is a disaster and I'm trying to pack for Panama and get rid of shit, but athat made it even worse.
Would it be lame to wear a band t shirt to their own concert? Would you ever do it? If no, why not?
If you haven't would you ever do it?
If your closest friends DO have children, do you feel really close to the babies/kids as well?
I am finally starting to understand the bond I have with my mom's best friend since my very close friend and old roommate had a baby in March. I LOVE that lil baby so much :)
And now for the real question I came to ask. For the guys.
Do you EVER use the hole the clothing companies so generously provide for us in the front of our underwear? Why do they even put it there?
1. I have something called ccApp.exe running which is taking 50 CPU and making my computer run like I'm torturing it with spikes. Google tells me it's part of Norton anti-virus. How do I make it go away? Closing my virus software isn't working, and it won't let me end that process on its own either.
2. What was the last thing you broke?
3. Are you aware that the British Barometer association has ruled that mercury is unsafe to use, and people of Barometer World, Devon, are angry? Do you know why that warranted a 10 minute segment on my local news?
4. I've lost one the little plastic nose resty thingies off my glasses. Have you seen it?
5. How many toes do you have? If you have six, I want a picture to prove it. ETA: It has been pointed out to me that most people have two feet. Having tragically lost one of my feet in a chicken-related accident, I forgot.
So this guy was one of my subs a while ago, and he said he was a chiropractor. (I had back troubles at the time) HE TOUCHED ME! My back, I mean. And also gave me his phone number to call so I could go to his house because he didn't have an office yet, and his sessions were free for high school students. I just smiled and nodded, of course. I got a totally creepy vibe from the dude.
And now it turns out he was arrested for being a molestor!
So, TQC, has any creepy vibes you've had about people become true?
I know you people won't be able to tell me seriously, because, obviously, he's the only one that knows, but TQC, what are your opinions?
ETA: I think it's interesting how this whole thing has become a talk about virginity. No biggie though. I know I shouldn't have such high standards for losing my virginity, and I really don't. I may have high standards for the setting, but as far as the whole thing, I know it's not gonna be as magical as it may seem. Also, more than likely, if he does propose, I won't be spreading my legs, due to the fact that I'd be feeling guilty to myself.
1) does walmart do drug testing when they hire you?
2) i smoked weed june 5. how long until i'd be safe on a drug test? eta: this is the only time i've ever smoked and i don't plan on smoking again. i'm definitely not a pot head.
3) wtf should i wear to my interview with walmart tomorrow? i'm going to be a greeter for the garden center, if it makes a difference.
4) any tips for a job interview? this is my third interview but i have yet to get a job, but i reaaally need this job.
5) do any of you live in/near buffalo, ny? what awesome things should i do/see while there next thursday?
I googled, and tried mutiple tutorials, but none of them worked. One of them worked to the point where I converted it and saved it on my computer, but it only saved or converted the audio and not the video(?).

2. Have you read Stephen King's Dark Tower series? What did you think? Do you have favorite and least-favorites volumes in the series? I'm currently re-reading them coz it's been a few years. Book 3 is my favorite and 4 is my least. It's a 73985304 page flashback! Bah.
