1) have you seen "GRAY MATTERS"?
or what weird human trick can you do?
pics if you have anyyyy
i have two uvula's :x
kinda gross :/
In this college class, you need to get a 99-100% in order to get a 4.0. 97-98% = 3.9, 96% = 3.8, 95% = 3.7, 94% = 3.6, and so on.
My goal for the whole year was to get a 4.0. I would often get discouraged if my assignments were not perfect. And I'd stress myself out everyday for the entire year working my ass off in order to get the 4.0. I would often dream about achieving it and my teacher told me to forget about it because no one has ever gotten that grade in her entire teaching career (she's been a teacher for a very long time). I can understand why she would tell me that because most people have a D in that class and only 1 person has an A.
The year has just ended and I aced my exam and essay, each worth 15% of my grade. So I got my 4.0. Why don't I feel as happy? I felt happier being stressed.
2. Did anything really shitty happen to you today? Vent to me about it?
3. Have you ever posed nude for art? Or just because you felt like it? Pics plz? =P

I need some d/l ideas so recommendations please!
What's the last thing your ordered online?
What's the best thing you've ever brought home from a concert, whether it be merch or something else?
--my answers in the comments
Do any of you have a 'body corrective fetish'?
Can you give examples of what you'd like to do/how it applies to you?
Let me explain what I mean by that...
When I see a picture of webbed toes, I want to take a scalpel and cut the webbing open so the toes are free. When I see someone who is 'tongue tied' (connective tissue from their tongue's tip to their mouth bottom), I want to cut it so the tongue is free to move about.
When I see someone with a muscular disorder forcing their arm to "curl inward" toward their body, I want to bend it back outward so it can be positioned normally. Clubbed feet? I'll bend them back into normal position. Teeth out of position? I'll bend those too.
Even when I have internal bodily problems, I wish I had these things I saw in some sci-fi show (sliders?) called 'living gloves' that allow you to reach straight through the skin (like it wasn't there) and just use hands to manipulate internal parts.
I guess part of it is like a comfort issue--they'd have more freedom of movement (in how I visualize it anyway) and feel more comfortable overall.
B. Do you have a kitchen garden? If so, what's in it?
C. Do you drink your beverages with straws at home? How about at restaurants? Does the type of beverage change the answer?
b. Yes. Cucumbers, spinach, tomatoes, cilantro, peppermint, spearmint, dill, and a few other herbs.
c. I drink almost all cold beverages with a straw, but I think I'm unusual in that.
mine would be the annoyingly sweet cheerleader

Cream Soda or Root Beer?
For the women: WOuld you expect your SO to have sex with you if you're pregnant?
(Up to a certain point...once I hit the third trimester, I would be a little concerned with my baby's well being)
For the men: WOuld you have sex with your SO if she was pregnant?
Favorite crazy dance move?

An older man was chatting me up at a furniture store yesterday, and apparently I am unable to lie under pressure because now he knows my name, age, where I go to school, and where I work. It makes me nervous.
1) So... DO mermaids have vaginas? If they did, would that mean male mermaids (or mer-men, whatever they're called) have penises? How would they have sex?
2) Ever have a kid ask you something that catches you completely off guard? What was it?
"MTS is not PC. If you can't live with that, please don't let the door hit ya. The overkill PC whinging is really fucking tiring. We get it already. Get over it or leave. Honestly."
Bear with me.
At the risk of being all mockworthy there myself - what is the significance of PC here?
Answered - thank you! :D
Do you even like that song?
"American Dream" Casting Crowns
Yes, but not so much when it's repeating over and over again in my head
idk its 3am here. i cant sleep.:(
btw it will go to my phone. i usually reply. unless i just passed out.haha
For non-vegetarians, would you eat cold fried chicken for breakfast?
Don't just automatically say yes because yes is the "right" answer, plz ty. Actually think about it.
I honestly think I would not want to know. That would just be so goddamn hard for me to come to accept, I believe. Plus I'd pretty much have to murder my father/grandfather.
Where do you think the line should be drawn regarding "illegal" things that are an intregal part of a religion?
IE, should be people arrested for sacrificing animals if they do it for religious reasons? Polygamy? Children consuming alcohol as part of a religious service?
Would you mind showing me around and filling me in on who's who?
1. Shoofly Pie?
5. Scrapple (loved this junk when I ate meat)?
6. Tomato pie?
2) Should I take up knitting? Is it hard? Everyone I know that starts knitting becomes obsessed.
3) What do you think happened to this missing pregnant woman in Canton, Ohio?
4) What "group" do you think is most vilified on LJ? (For example, furries, goths, Christians, etc.)

How low can you go?
Death row, what a brother knows
Once again back is the incredible
The rhyme animal
The incredible D, Public Enemy, number one
"Five-O" said, "Freeze!" and I got numb
Can I tell 'em that I really never had a gun
But it's the wax that the terminator x spun
Now they got me in a cell 'cause my records, they sell
Cause a brother like me said, "Well...
...Farrakhan's a prophet and I think you ought to listen to
what he can say to you, what you ought to do"
Follow for now, power of the people, say,
"Make a miracle, D, pump the lyrical"
Black is back, all in, we're gonna win
Check it out, yeah y'all c'mon, here we go again
Turn it up! Bring the noise
Never badder than bad 'cause the brother is madder than mad
At the fact that's corrupt as a senator
Soul on a roll, but you treat it like soap on a rope
'Cause the beats in the lines are so dope
Listen for lessons I'm saying inside music
That the critics are blasting me for
They'll never care for the brothers and sisters now across
The country has us up for the war
We got to demonstrate, come on now, they're gonna have to wait,
'till we get it right
Radio stations I question their blackness
They call themselves black, but we'll see if they'll play this
Turn it up! Bring the noise
Get from in front of me, the crowd runs to me
My deejay is warm, he's x, I call him Norm ya know
He can cut a record from side to side
So what, the ride, the glide should be much safer than a suicide
Soul control, beat is the father of your rock 'n' roll
Music for whatcha, for whichin', you call a band man
Makin' a music, abuse it, but you can't do it, ya know
You call'em demos, but we ride limos too
Whatcha gonna do? Rap is not afraid of you
Beat is for Sonny Bono, beat is for Yoko Ono
Run-DMC first said a deejay could be a band
Stand on it's own feet, get you out your seat
Beat is for Eric B and L L as well, hell
Wax is for Anthrax, still I can rock bells ever forever,
Universal it will sell
Time for me to exit, terminator x-it
Turn it up! Bring the noise
From coast to coast, so you stop being like a comatose
Stand my man? The beat's the same with a boost-toast
Rock with some pizzazz, it will last, why you ask?
Roll with the rock stats, you'll never get accepted as
We got to plead the fifth, we can investigate
Don't need to wait, get the record straight
Hey, posse's in effect, got flavor, terminator
X to sign checks, play to get paid
We got to check it out down on the avenue
A magazine or tow is dissing me and dissing you
Yeah, I'm telling you...
Follow up question: have you ever been accused of being too black?
Mostly for the men but women are welcome to answer too...
...what's the best method of usage?
Some feel the need to hold & aim while others are of the mindset they're self guiding. Like many, I don't pay much attention to how my fellow males do what they do in the bathroom. Although, I did notice one guy at a standup with his hands in his pockets.
Along with the other question: what technique do you use?
2. I have really, really dry skin. I notice that on my arms and legs I get "fake zits". They aren't really zits because there is no oil or blockage. It's just a little white bump. If you scratch it, you can pick a little dead skin off of it, but that is it. (so, again...not a zit). Does anyone else get these? Do you have any tricks for getting rid of this fake body acne? (Oh, and I exfoliate like a champ, so that isn't the solution)
3. Does your skin tend to be more oily or dry? Are your skin conditions worse in the heat or the cold?
4. What SPF do you use?
5. What product do you use to shave? (Like, soap, shaving cream, etc.)
How long does it take for you to get over the guilt you feel after doing something horrible? Or does it just come back in waves, creeping on you during the most random times?

3. What do you live for?
4. What is one thing you could change to make your life easier? Why haven't you changed that yet?

1. Why ARE there so many songs about rainbows?
2. Do you have a special place in your heart for rainbows?
3. Do you save your emailed comments/ replies/ etc?
4. Do you organize them for easy access? Do you just put them all in a folder?
Ive read all the Shopaholics and rest of the Sofia Kinsella books... but id like to read something similar that is girly and also quite witty..

It was a pun, and the punchline is something like, "Don't worry, it's just a paradox/pair o' docks"
Can anyone tell me with the introduction to this joke is?

I'd be fine.
What do you do?
2)I have super dry, very white skin. What's the best way to tan it so I look really dark? I can't decide on sunless tanner, tanning bed, or the booth where they spray paint you. I don't want to look like an Oompa Loompa. :(
3)My eyes are blue. Can I wear green eyeshadow with an orange sundress or would that be totally wrong? What eyeshadow do you think would go best with an orange sundress?
4)What kind of music do you like to listen to while chewing gum?

Three guys pay $30 for a pizza. The pizza dude realises the pizza only costs $25, but he decides to give only $3 back to each of the guys and pocket the remaining $2. After receiving their $1 back, each of the guys has paid $9. Three times $9 is $27, plus the pizza dude has $2, which equals $29. What happened to the final dollar?

Do most of your friends have Myspace or not?
Have you ever "stalked" someones page? i.e., viewed it many times in a day, kept up to date with their life because of it, etc.
Did you know them or not?
& a completely unrelated question.
What is one of your favorite jokes? Will you share it with me, please?
1) I like it, I'm bad at keeping in touch with people, Myspace makes it easier and less intruding than a phonecall with someone I don't care to talk to for long.
3) probably 98% have it.
4) yeah hahaha but not horribly. I'm online most of the day at work (i'm allowed) so I get bored... my friends are nosy too so i have to be careful with what i have on my myspace.
Why does Coca-Cola make my kidneys hurt if I drink more than about 6 ounces? No other soda does this, not even Pepsi. I don't know about any of their "special" kinds or diet varieties because I never drank enough for it to affect me.

"Shirt in nice condition. Its measurements are 19" pit to pit. Would say its a Large shirt 38-40."
when i've bought shirts from the UK before, 36-38 has always been a small and 39-41 a medium.
1. Has "It's Raining Men" always been property of the homosexual male community or should hetero women reclaim it?
Edit: Valid point - is it indeed a shared commodity?
Am I stuck wearing a strapless bra with it? I have a convertible bra that is off-white. Would it look tacky if the strap is showing a little? Wearing a shrug or cardigan is not an option because it is seriously hot down here.

I lean towards the later musicals, because, to me, there is a more fluid transition between story and number, where in the older ones, action happens and they sing about it.
What are some of your favorites?
Little Shop of Horrors
Phantom of the Opera (One of the two that I like by Andrew Lloyd Weber)
Jesus Christ, Superstar (This is the other)
What are some musicals you just plain don't like?
Grease (this combines two things I hate: High School and the 1950s)
Cats (It was nice to look at, but that's about it)

If you were getting married, how worried would you be about what guests wore to your wedding? 1=That would be the absolute furthest thing from my mind; 10=I would be concerned enough that I would probably put my expectations of appropriate attire in the invitations, and anyone who didn't dress appropriately would not be allowed to attend.
What was/is your favourite Loony Tunes/Merrie Melodies short?
I love the Marc Antony and Pussyfoot shorts.
Who was/is your favourite Loony Tunes/Merrie Melodies character?
Pussyfoot and Michigan J. Frog
Did/do you like Animaniacs?
I used to, I haven' t seen it in ages.
Do you remember Tiny Toon Adventures?
Man I used to love that show.
From my experience here, I know some of you will say "Mind your own business" or "it was none of your business," but I'm asking for an analysis of why someone would do that. I mean, why lie about THAT?
Can you recommend an alcoholic beverage that would be a good tribute to the sun?
I'm going to the bar after work, which I don't do often.
So, since I don't smoke pot & thus will not be using the pages to roll joints, what should I do with this bible? I'd feel bad giving it to Goodwill and even then- It's personalized so that's double weird to me.

What I usually like:
Entertaining, funny, dramatic, romantic, adventurous, young adult, humourous sci-fi, clever, inspirational but not cheesy, female empowerment, female protagonists.
Think Jane Austen, Wicked, Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Diane Wright, Wayside School series, Catherine Called Birdy, Kite Runner, Rob Thomas (Rats Saw God), Poisonwood Bible, Harry Potter, The Count of Monte Cristo, Judy Blume, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Nick Hornby, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, etc.
Not big on:
History, politics, corny fantasy (Daughters of the Moon), trivial high school experiences (Sweet Valley High/University), thrillers.

How many things can you do at the same time, while driving?
I think it's impossible to drive safely while talking on a cell phone and smoking a cigarette. There has to be a time when the person doesn't have either of their hands on the steering wheel.
I can drive, eat and change radio stations all at the same time...that's about it.
I already know the shoes I'm wearing, but I get the feeling I should wear something else with it like a jacket or something. Any suggestions?
Also I have no idea what kind of makeup to have. I have a pale complexion, light blue eyes and my hair is auburn. Would purple with little hints of black look okay?
Does your fridge have an automatic ice maker/machine thingy?
Do you hang your laundry out on clothes lines?
Do you have a clothes dryer? When do you use it?
Do you have a clothes horse and use it?
Are you creeped out by clothes hanging outside/in a public room of the house?
I ask because I've just had a conversation with someone who was saying that the kids she teaches laughs at her because she 'makes ice cubes the old fashioned way' and I was like '... what way do THEY make them?' and she informed me that almost all fridges have automatic ice makers. I don't know anyone with an ice maker in their fridge. And then she was saying something about how the kids were shocked when they found out that people hang their clothes out to dry rather than using a dryer. All the people I know hang it outside, and in winter/rain, use a clothes horse inside. Most people I know don't have a clothes dryer, or if they do they only seem to use it in emergencies. I'm in Australia. I'm also often shocked by lack of dual flush toilets, but we've been over that one before.
edit: So are the kids she's teaching just in a rich area or something, or... (They don't sound very rich. Except for apparently being horrified by clothes hanging outside/in a public room of the house, and apparently thinking icecube trays are hilarious)
I had a lettuce, mozzarella, and red wine vinegar sandwich for dinner and now I'm ridiculously nauseous. I think I used a little more vinegar than usual, I washed the lettuce, and the cheese is fine as far as I can tell.
Do they say "That's what she said" a lot on the show?
I had to go into the city (downtown San Francisco) tonight to do a job. Job paid $75 and lasted two hours. But there isn't street parking near the building, so you have to park in a parking lot if you're driving in. Most places will validate your parking, but this company doesn't. So I ended up having to pay $17 for two hours of parking (!!) out of pocket.
a) Do you think the company should validate parking?
b) Do you think the company should let people know that they're going to have to pay for parking and that it will run them about $20?
**Edit** The 'job' = me sitting around talking about coffee for two hours. Woo.

I haven't cut my hair in about 3 years. It is now down to my ass. I have a 3 month old and she has taken to pulling at it. I'm also just plain tired of it.
My hair is very fine and does not hold styles well. So, what should I do with my hair? How short should I cut it? I need something easy to maintain, does not require a lot of styling, and somewhat cute/sexy.
Do you have any ideas? Pictures would be nice!
