2) Myspace or Facebook?
3) So, I heard you like Mudkip?
4) What "rewards card" keytag do you use the most?

I'm probably going to get about 5 and a half. Yeiks!
Can you describe your first, or your earliest memory...
Bus/Coach journey (greyhound, national express etc)?
Car: Earliest I can remember, my granddad taking me and my family home after visiting him and his family, in an old 3 door austin metro. Navy blue with no back seatbelts.
Train: I think going to beach with my mum when I was 6.
Coach: I remember going down south to our supposed new home. It had a toilet and air con, and when you're 4 that's the coolest thing ever.
Plane: Flying to the us via iceland about 4 years ago.
Boat: Can't remember anything big, just a row boat ride with my dad.
Is it possible to make microwave popcorn without a microwave? How?
I have a bag of microwave popcorn, but no microwave. I was wondering if my air popper, stove top or oven could work to pop it.
ETA: I was able to do it with a pot and it turned out pretty well. Thanks for all your help! :)

2a. If you only read specific genres, what are they?
3. Care to recommend me a book?
1. En El Tiempo De Las Mariposas. Oh my God, so good.
2. I especially like history and biographies, and for the most part can't stand science-fiction/fantasy, though I did read Harry Potter. Right now though, I'm super into books pertaining to Latin American revolutions. I think I've read every biography of Che Guevara out there.
What are some things you can do/get for someone who is really depressed? I want to try to cheer my friend up tomorrow.
1. Do you ever watch The Today Show? Who is the better Today anchor--Katie Couric or Meredith Vieira? [It's become my insomnia tradition. Katie made being insane from not sleeping more enjoyable. Meredith seems awkward a lot of the time.]
2. Ever since I was a kid, I hold my breath for about 15 seconds after people cough or sneeze (to avoid inhaling whatever they're spewing around). Exercise in futility, y/n?
3. Have you ever written a letter to your congressman? Exercise in futility, y/n?

What time is it where you are?
Have you ever done something to face your fear? Like bungee jump when you're afraid of heights. I'm getting scuba certified and I'm starting to realize that I have issues with this and I'm looking for some reinforcement.

1. What kind of animal would you NEVER eat?
2. What are some animals you'd like to try?
Do you like the new Dairy Queen couple ? The waffle cone and ice cream people?
what other commericial couples/families are/were there?
want to go to the Met and MoMA with me this Friday?
What about clubbing on saturday?
Do you remember when you first learned that meat is dead animals? Did you find that at all disturbing? If so, did you try being a vegetarian?
I don't remember artist or song name. All I know is the video. The artist is something like Muse. In the video there is a war scene going on, but all the way in the start, a little boy goes to deliver a message and then gets shot.
Does anyone know the name of this song?
Does anyone have any good prank call stories?

First it was "IM IN UR NOUN, VERBING YOUR NOUN", then it was cat macros... what will the next internet obsession be?
What color is your underwear?
I'm wearing white ones from Victoria's Secret with pink trim and retro-y flowers.
What bands would you say were a part of the grunge genre?
Nirvana? Alice in Chains? Spice Girls?
My co-worker is under the impression that all things not pop/rap/hip-hop/country from the 90s are considered grunge. I need to set the boy straight. (I'm kidding about the Spice Girls, just so you know.)
Okay, so this weekend I'm going to get a chance to see my favorite voice actor EVER, in person. I'll likely get his autograph at least once, but he's doing two signings and I want to try to go to both.
My husband's good friend, who is also my friend (I knew him before I knew my husband actually, he's one of the reasons we met) is also a huge fan of this actor. Said actor was the voice of his favorite character in his favorite show.
I'm not guaranteed two autographs.
-Be selfish! Even if you get both autographs, make them both for yourself! You're the one going all the way there and waiting in line for hours. Plus, you love half his characters and can't pick a favorite thing for him to sign anyway.
-Be the good friend and great person! Get your stuff signed first, but wait in the second line to get something signed for your friend, then surprise him with it when he least expects it.
One more question: going to a celebrity signing, is it in poor taste to print up a picture on your computer/photo printer for them to sign? Since this guy voices anime characters, I don't have any way to get an 8x10 glossy except to print it myself. And if I wanted to get something for my friend, I would need to print it myself. It wouldn't be the actor's picture though, it would be his character.
Sorry for the tl;dr.
Who would you want to be tied to for 24hours?
What's one of the strangest/funniest/most random/most obnoxious/stupidest conversation snippets you've overheard in public?
A few months ago, these girls were boozing it up in the bar (at our local Houston TGI Fridays) and they were discussing the love lives of several of their friends. The following exchange floated over the din...
Girl 1: Oh may gawdd!!! I cain't belieeeeve that!!
Girl 2: I know, right??
G1: I cain't believe JD would do that to her!!
G2: No no no! It wasn't JD! It was DJ!!
G1: DJ???? Oh may gawdd!!!

Should I get a facebook?
I never had a Myspace and feel like I'm missing out on the fad.
I work at a shoe store and we got a shipment of Uggs last night (supposidly 17 huge cardboard boxes). Should I buy like, 10 pairs and sell them on Ebay during Christmas season? My manager mentioned doing this, and says he could get triple the price if you time it right.

1. When was the last time you got hurt while doing something seemingly harmless?
I was just filing some charts, and a few of them fell and slashed my hand. They managed to go through all of the skin there, and now I have a slanted gash below my thumb. I didn't bleed on any of the files though ;)
I'm having nachos for dinner tonight!
What should I put in them, besides meat?
So far I have salsa, taco sauce, jalapenos, and queso dip. Booooring.
ETA: Unconventional toppings are welcomed, as the people I'm sharing my food with hate olives, guacamole, and sour cream D:
If you could open up your own business, what would it be?
(I would have a used book store. My boyfriend opened up a roofing company last year and we are planning on running a pawnshop in the next few years.)
Do you consider Ohio part of the east coast?

Once you've download the pdf. file, how do you edit in it? It won't let me edit or delete anything. :(
For the women in the group...(and the men if you think it appropriate)
If you are one of those people who can't stand sitting on a public toilet seat, I ask why?
Is it because of people like you who get urine on the toilet seat and don't wipe it up? (since it's generally pretty hard to get urine on the seat when you're actually sitting on it)
And, what are you afraid of exactly? Is it the germs on the backs of people's legs? (Are you afraid that most people have some kind of strange "back of the thigh" germs that you may contract?)
And have you ever stopped to think that the germs acquired from using toilet paper are on your hands as well and hence living on your pants since you buttoned up before washing them?
So again I ask, if you are one of those people who can't stand sitting on a public toilet seat, why?
I'm just curious because I think the whole "hover" idea is stupid. If the seat is dry, I am sure it's fine. I have yet to see the headline about the woman (or man) who died from the germs she acquired from sitting on a public toilet seat, which is probably cleaned more often than your toilet seat at home. But maybe I missed that headline?
As an aside, if you walk into a stall and the seat is clean but the toilet is not flushed, would you change stalls or just flush it and do your business?
I have flushed and done my business, but I have also walked away. In both instances I just shook my head kind of like I do when people don't return their carts to the cart holder in the grocery store parking lot. But that's a whole other question...
im too lazy to look into this. im hoping one of you smarties knows the answer.

im asking b/c i have safety bonds i have to cash in, and they are in my maiden name (no, i havent changed my name at the bank either. i know, im lazy) do i need my marriage certificate for that? they didnt the last time i cashed them in, but i dont think ill be that lucky this time around.
1. How many errors will you make if you type the answer to this with your eyes closed?
2. Do you dare eat a peach?
There's a song that has the line, "hos take off yo' clothes, hos get naked" and I CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT IT'S CALLED. I want to hear it so bad. If you recognize it do you know know who sings it or where I could find it?
If you're in a cubicle farm, what are your neighbors like?
I'm in a square of them, and the guy to the west of me is very very gay and likes the Simpsons a LOT. The woman to the north is an oldschool hippy, with save the whales posters up and everything. She eats leftover organic beans for lunch out of mason jars. It's lol. Diagonal from me is some weird old lady who yells at me if the lights aren't off when she gets here in the morning (I'm not the last to leave in the afternoon!).
What color is your favorite pair of shoes?
I read the newspaper this morning and rolled my eyes. Have Harry Potter omg-don't-spoil-it-people-are-jerks fans really lost that much perspective of what the important issues are in the world?
(I ask this because I'm fairly certain they would cry if some one told them the ending (which is rude, but not heartbreaking), but can't be bothered to care much about [insert your pet heartbreaking human rights atrocity issue/international issue right here].)
EDIT: Before this gets me too far up the creek without a paddle (which it already has), I'm not saying that caring about world events and Harry Potter are mutually exclusive. They aren't. I do find a lot to shake my head at and laugh at, though.

Do you use the paper toilet seat covers when you use a public restroom?
If there aren't any, do you just hold it?
I have never once used one of those in my entire life.. and some of my friends find this fact absolutely absurd. :) If a toilet is extremely dirty, I just won't use it.

What could the name "Netty" or "Neddy" (I'm not sure which spelling) be short for? I know it's a Spanish/Mexican name, and female.
Have you ever recognized someone you knew in a porno?
edit; To answer peoples' question, I've seen a few people in pornos that look like people I know or used to know, but I have no way of knowing if it's actually them (I DL all my porn, so it's not like I can look at the credits and google their porn name or anything).
I have mono and am bored out of my mind.
I need books to read. Any recommendations?
I don't care what kind, if you would just be so kind to tell me what genre and if they're a light read or a deep one.
Thanks. Any other suggestions to overcome the boredom would be welcome as well.

If you scrambled your name around, what would your new name be? (You can scramble it any which way.)
Cloien. Sounds like a hick way of saying Chloe.
It's been ten years and I've never really been sure -- in Titanic, what does Brock (Bill Paxton) think happened to the diamond? We know Rose had it all those years, of course, but she didn't tell him that...he says "Three years I’ve thought of nothing except Titanic, but I never got it. I never let it in." Meaning...?
Why does Mormonism get all the attractive guys? Is it just their forbidden nature that makes them so appealing?
How is it like having big/decent sized boobs? I'm tired of having tiny girls. Are having big boobs as awesome as I think it'd be?
*edit* do you think it's possible for a guy to not prefer big boobs? i've heard of it, but I don't believe it.
What was your most recent embarrassing moment?
I had a date this evening and I thought I would be fine despite not having slept much in the last two days. During our date, I was so frustrated and tired that I began crying uncontrollably. It wouldn't have been so bad had we been alone instead of being in a public restaurant. Everyone near us was staring at us. Needless to say my date was embarrassed and not too fond of me. Can't say I blame her though.
Did you ever have the chicken pox?
Do you know someone who got it later in life?
My friend just called to tell me she has them. She thought it was poison oak at first, but I guess it began spreading. She's 19! I thought everyone our age had it as a kid.
I had it when I was 3.
Without googling, do you know the difference between a Psychologist and Psychiatrist? (if yes, is it because you're a patient of one of them?)
Do you think one practice is more reputable than the other?
If you had to pick one, which would you rather talk to about your mental health?
What's the most ridiculous experience you've ever had with an apartment or landlord?
I thought my roommates and I had pretty much had it all with our apartment, but today takes the cake. We found out that we have been paying someone else's electric bill. For two years. Yeah. If we had been underpaying I would not be as irritated, but we frequently pay well over $200 for a 1300 square foot apartment that we usually keep very warm. I am beyond pissed at the moment.
So this will be my first offical time interviewing someone.
Any tips? I'm nervous as crap.
I know to keep things going and say that I will be using their quotes.
Andd, another question:
What is a band that you would like to see get more popular?
If you are in contact with something you are allergic to (or ingest), do you feel the effects right away or does it take a bit before they appear?

Where should I go???
Thanks in advance.

How do you stick it to "the man?"
What was the last place that you went to, even though you were forbidden from going there? (note: a "no tresspassing" sign or something similar counts for the purpose of this discussion.)
What are the best books or movies with twist endings?
Say you grew up with seriously emotionally challenged parents and, at some point in your child, decided that you wanted nothing to do with one of them in particular. After several years of not talking, said parent (who happens to be slowly dying halfway around the world of his/her THIRD round of lung cancer) fires you an e-mail more or less telling you that you're an immature brat and claims that your (new) marriage is a sham.
Remember, you've not spoken with this parent for years and they've never met your spouse.
Then, they tell you that you need counseling.
What then hell do you do with that?
(Incidentally, I sent back an appropriately livid response. My sister, who is close with this parent, told me to speak with their spouse, with whom I've never spoken. WASTE OF TIME, Y/N?)
You know Tom Lehrer's song 'The Elements'? What tune is that set to? It sounds so familiar.

Why are pandas black and white?
It makes sense for zebras and cows 'cause it breaks up their outlines and makes it hard for predators to single them out
but aren't pandas solitary?
Why be black and white if you're surrounded by green?
It makes no sense, damnit!
What was the scariest thing you ever lived through/experienced?
I lived and worked 10 blocks away from NYC's pipeline explosion today, and I also lived very close to a natural gas pipeline explosion in '94. No natural disasters, though.
I bought a dress from Delias via internet over a year ago but it was too big and had a rip. I meant to return it but forgot about it and it kind of got lost in my mess of a room. I emailed them but almost a week later still have no response. Anyone know if they would take it back for store credit after all this time?
How do you manage to keep in touch with all your friends?
Be as specific as possible.
Thanks for your responses!
