Also, I have to do an project in which I have to paint one of the leading painters of surrealism. Do you think it'd be more interesting to paint Frida Kahlo, or Magritte?

Also, I have to do an project in which I have to paint one of the leading painters of surrealism. Do you think it'd be more interesting to paint Frida Kahlo, or Magritte?
I've been thinking about it, and I think the best idea is to be honest. I need money more than the other applicants because of my situation, I'd be willing to work as far as I can and take as little time as possible off, etc. So I think it may work towards my advantage, but obviously there's always the "it'd just be easier to hire someone who won't be taking time off" blah blah blah.
So tell? Don't tell?
Also, have you ever been in a similar situation, or know anyone that has? What happened?
Ps, I'm doing better now (if you remember my post from before).
It usually shows up at midnight that I've been paid when I look. But it's almost 1AM and still nothing. Just wondering if this is a bank lag-issue or whether my work has fucked up paying me (again). There was a bank holiday on monday - would that delay things?
I live in the UK, fyi.
Do you like your height?
I'm very short. 5'2".
I've always liked being short. The only thing that sucks is even petite pants are too long :(
Have you ever removed friends from Facebook/MySpace? Why?
How do you keep track of appointments/special dates?
Are you an organized person?
Have an Unexpected Pregnancy?
An Unexpected death of a Co-Worker?
I just had a dream that my friend Michael died... I just started crying, it's been 45 minutes. And this happens to me basically 3 or 4 times a week.
Am I just overemotional, or does this ever happen to you?
What are some relatively normal things that bug the shit out of you?
i'm moving out soon! what are some things i'll need in my apt that people tend to forget to buy?
The farmer's market had no chicken breasts, so I got quail instead.
Also, I'm single. Are dating sites worth it like eHarmony?
Like, how early could a package I am expecting get here? How late?
Subtle communication, the truth but with a bit of tact
The honest trust, little to no tact, but complete honesty.
For example, if your girlfriend was doing something that wasn't like them, and you didn't like it, would you try to tell them gently, with subtle hints over months, or just tell them flat out how you feel?
2: Are you glad to see the summer coming to a close?

-Laying on the grass after class had let out and watching two dragonflies above my head in a mating dance in the wind. It was amazing to watch.
One more: No matter what you feel right now, what is something you can think of that makes you smile?
Also, as of the end of October, Wonder Bread is no longer going to be sold in Southern California. Even though I don't really eat it, should I go out and buy some just in case?
it squeeks HORRIBLY and i dont know how to fix it. how do you make a chair not squeak anymore???
Friend A has told you that they dont want to live with friend B anymore. Friend A doesnt have the guts to tell friend B and friend B comes to you and expresses concern, and they ask you whether friend A has said anything about them?
Do you tell friend B, or do you not?
2. HOW OLD IS YOUR OLDEST LIVING RELATIVE? WHAT RELATION ARE THEY TO YOU?
3. CAN YOU SHOW ME A PICTURE OF YOU STANDING ON ONE FOOT?
4. HOW MANY PAIRS OF SHOES WOULD A PERSON HAVE TO OWN BEFORE YOU WOULD SAY THEY HAD TOO MANY?
So, any idea why this is happening?
And no, I have not been sexually active.
(or if you're already married, was there a song that you definitely had to play at your wedding?)
2. what's this song?
3. why is it so important... so necessary?

2) I'm a horrible evil person because children and beautiful and precious and unique and everyone should want 2,058,583 of them!
I am 22 and a few friends from high school recently had babies. One person I used to be good friends with brought her baby over to show me (because that's something I'm interested in, of course) and when my 7 lb. pomeranian was sniffing her car seat while the baby was in it, my friend smacked my dog away freaking out.
My initial reaction was to say "If you can discipline my dog, I think I'm entitled to discipline your child when it does any of the many irritating, loud, obnoxious things that it does." How many of you think she overreacted?
can you think of any fun songs i should play her?
what do you think?
we thought it was funny 'cause he's done a couple movies(one which he co-wrote) which have dealt with suicide in a dark humor sort of manner.
i probably should have mentioned that we both really like him and are glad he isn't dead.
Does it annoy you when people do that, or do you just not care?
What is your favorite icon of yours / why?
What is your favorite icon of someone else's / why?
but I found a Dove bar! D:
Should I eat it Y/N? I've been eating healthy all week and I was on a roll!
Where are you from?
would it give you anxiety to search for another/different job?
i've been at my job for 5 years (i'm 25) and it is a job i am over qualified for. i am in the process of sending resumes out while at the same time i am dealing with anxiety over actually leaving. i am a (uncertified) home health aide and have worked with the same woman (her husband died in february, i worked with both of them until his passing) for 5 years and i am so over it. i want a computer, a desk, a boss, a lunch break, and a job where i have to wear something other than basketballs shorts and tshirts every day.
would you be very picky if you were to find another job?
i am beyond picky. i want a raise, first and foremost and they have to let me finish my masters
anyway, is your lawn green? or brown? (some other color?)
mine is brown...buffalo has had less rain than most desert areas this summer, lol
So, I was wondering, are there any programs, or any other way, for me to temporarily find a job or internship-type thing at some different locations for a few months or so, but not permanently moving there? For example, I did an internship at DC last fall for four months.
Has anyone done that? Just temporarily lived somewhere, without moving there permanently, just to see what it's like there for a few months? Thanks.

How does 475 dollars (even though I haven't had to use my debit card in over a month, and I haven't given away any information) just seem to VANISH from my account, with no records at all whatsoever? Has this happened to anyone else?
Anything piss you off today?
Edit: Completely off-topic. Is it me or are there a ton of new people in TQC (more than usual)?
I posted a message in my community forum asking for kennel recommendations in my area, and all i'm getting back is horror stories. It's really freaking my out. This might sound stupid, but this dog is my baby and i'm scared enough as it is leaving him with strangers for a week. I keep picturing him laying on a cold concrete floor, caged and alone, for hours upon hours with the sad face he does when he does something bad. I'm probably being overly dramatic, but yeah.
Does anyone have anything good to say about kennels? Please?
Anything I need to know? Any advice?
One that is very good quality so as to referance for a tattoo?
I am curious to hear other opinions about this. So, TQC, is bisexuality a legitimate sexual orientation? Or is it all LIES!?!
any info/advice is appriciated!
I've had a checking account for a while, but have never needed actual checks, so I never ordered them. I need them now though, so I went to the bank and ordered some. I was shocked at how expensive they were! Almost $20?!? For pieces of paper?!?
I ordered them anyways, because I need them, but I figured there had to be a better way. I'm looking at checks online now, and I can get twice the amount of checks...checks that are cute and designed, for the same amount as the boring expensive ones from the bank.
Have you ever bought checks online? Do I have to tell my bank somehow, or do they just automatically sinc with my account? Is it safe to buy them online?
This is me:
More pictures of me plus the shade of blonde I'd like to go, under the cut!

EDIT: I now know the color that I want is NOT platinum but could I pull off this color is what I'm asking about.
And you guys keep saying a red and I really like the red on the top picture:
Would that look good?

3) Ducks, kittycats, flowers, and goofy faces :)
My sister put vasaline all over her bedroom when it was naptime once..and babypowder. I wrote on the walls and blamed the dog and dug in the plant and blamed the dog. Also I put silly putty in my sock, when playing undermy daybed, forgot about it after trying to get it out, left the sock inside out so you could see the putty and left it there, it ended up in the carpet!

Also, when you have a whole bunch of questions in your brain clamoring to get asked on TQC, how do you decide which one (or group) goes first?
Note: I myself do not normally like to throw a whole bunch of random questions together, unless they're the quick, choose between two options variety.

I got invited to the "Most Dreadfully Unfun Party of the Year". This was my friend's description of it in the invitation:
If you wish to have a good time, go to the other cool parties. Don't come to this one. Don't come at all. It will be the most unfun party you have ever had. After you have been to this, you will think nothing of hauling concrete blocks, or counting grains of sand for hours at a time, or visiting your parents. We will dance by moving our feet about the floor in a slight shuffling manner, and we will eat only small unsalted things, like boreos.
Please bring your own bored games and refreshments. As the night passes - how slowly it will pass! - we will play Dranium and wish that we were somewhere else. I will also give away copies of my children's story, which will make the children weep when they are forced to read it in school.
Anyone who smiles will be ushered out.
7:00 - 7:30: Unfortunate arrivals

8:30 - 9:00: The Music of Hank Williams: A Documentary
9:00 - 9:30: Lying on the floor and pondering the Mysteries
9:30 - 10:00: Watching the credits for the extended "Lord of the Rings" and looking for New Zealanders we know, eating unsalted chips, listening to John Adams and contemplating the extraordinary life of James A. Garfield, the twentieth president of the United States who could write Greek with one hand and Latin with the other simultaneously

for those of you aren't familiar with the premise, the town of pleasantville is a black & white town stuck in the 50's, completely devoid of any real substance (for lack of a better word) or any concept whatsoever that a world outside of them exists. when tobey maguire and reese witherspoon's character come in from ~the future~, they start corrupting the town by allowing them to see what it means to be "alive", so to speak by way of art, literature, music, sex, and subsequently, real human emotion.
so, my question is: if you were placed in this kind of a world, what would you "show" these people in the attempts to teach them about what it means to be human? what kind of music would you play for them? what would you tell them about the world? what pieces of art would you show them? etc.
i'm kind of in a rush right now, so i don't have much time to think, but from off the top of my head:

-- allen ginsberg's "howl"

Besides the gas mileage being better, I rarely travel long distances, I don't go places that require carrying a lot (except grocery shopping which we always do together regardless of who's paying), the bikes I can afford are higher quality than the super old cars I can afford...To me, this says buy a decent motorcycle, not a POS car.
I have a very important question about how unethical, if unethical at all you think this situation is. I'm a senior at a high school where the mascot is a ram. We've always had a fake model ram in our school, but two days ago one of the teachers brought in a real ram. The ram is small, and looks very young, so I dont know if anyone is really in danger. The question is how much danger is the ram in? It's kept in a cage, where students can easily see it, and get close to it, The cage is not tiny, but it is still a cage on campus, which just bothers me. I heard it will only be kept until a football game that is coming up, which is sometime within the next month, and really, any amount of time is just terrible. What do you think of this? Should the students say something? Do you think it's reasonable to be upset about this? I would really appreciate your advice!!
Thank you in advance
2)What famous person would you like to be trapped in an elevator with?

In your opinion, is the hottest woman hotter than the hottest man? Why or why not? I believe so. I'm turned on by men more often, but when I see a gorgeous woman, I can barely speak. I think women are just so graceful..curvy..soft..and I find more hot women who's egos seem less inflated by their beauty, than I do men. if that makes sense? i'm too lazy to figure out better wording. and it's just an opinion!
Are you m or f? straight, gay, bi?

Okay. So I am making a baby blanket. Crochet. Because I'm aweseom like that. Anyways, it is a pale green because up until, like, an hour ago, no one knew if the baby was a boy or a girl. Green is preety neutral. But now we know that IT IS A BOY!! so I can finish it and yeah.
Do I finish it in BLUE or in the white/multi baby stuff (has blue, yellow, green, and pink in it)? I CAN'T DECIDE.
Edti: The blanket is green. It is the edge/trim that I need to decide on. Just in case that helps. Okay. That's all. Bye.

She said she was officially trying to be an adult and would send out thank-you cards for all the gifts. If she did send any out, i didn't get one...
i didn't put my name anywhere on the box to say it was from me, i somehow figured she would be able to keep track of all the gifts she got that day, heh, so of course this is my own fault.
The gift was handmade (by me) so i really want to know if she liked it! (translation- i want praise for hard work) But i don't know if it would be rude of me to email her and ask about it. Would it? What could i say? Or do i just shut up forever and deal with it because you're not supposed to give gifts expecting thank-yous and praise? :(
At the same time, i would feel bad if someone gave me a gift and i didn't know who it was from. I would want to know.
Now, I know it's inappropriate and I'm not going to do it, but I'd love to write something in the memo section like, "I hope you choke on this check, asshole!"

After ten-plus years of being on The Internet, I'm going to have my first IRL meeting with an online friend this Sunday. (Breakfast at the local IHOP. My fiance and daughter will be there, too.)
Any advice you can give me?
I have ants all over my gorram kitchen.
Why do they like it in there so much? (The fact that there was a drop of pancake syrup on the counter doesn't count.)
How can I get rid of them?
Should I give up and just adopt them as pets? Give them names? Talk to them adoringly as I shoo them away from the sugar jar to make my coffee in the morning?
Will you tell me a story? Pleeeeeeeeease?
if i had the original blue prints or whatever for the Ruby Slippers could i hire a costume shoe maker to make me a pair?
the town is still cleaning up from the great flood of '07, and today I saw a casket out on the side of the road. (looked like a Halloween prop, but a damn good one though!)
So, do you know any songs from musicals that fit these criteria? (and what ones?)
For a female character.
Solo (or mainly solo that I can get rid of other parts or sing them myself)
Aren't really overused.
I tried google but they give so many programs and I don't know what are frauds and what are spywares.
I also tried Ashampoo Clipfinder but whenever I try download, it says it is locked.
They're the biggest snails in the world with a shell length of up to 22cm. So maybe something related to his size?
I'd love any names related to Evolution, but I don't think Darwin or Charles suits him so far.
It could be a girls or a boys name since snails are hermaphrodites, but i see him as more male really. I don't know why.
What was the oldest age that you remember taking a bath with someone (before the age of sexual interest)? Did you ever reach an age where it made you uncomfortable?
What is the oldest age you feel that it is appropriate for a child to bathe with the same sexed parent? Opposite sexed parent?
Is it appropriate at any age for a child to bathe with a grandparent or other extended adult relative?
I bathed with my sister and occasionally female cousins mostly to save water; and occasional showering with friends after swimming. Only once did I shower with a boy after swimming.
I think 7 was the oldest for bathing with my sister or cousins and by then it was rare. With friends, maybe up to age 12 but it always made me feel uncomfortable.
Maybe 3 or 4 for same sex? And 2 or younger for opposite. I don't know why I feel that it's different for opposite sex.
I wouldn't feel comfortable with my kid bathing with any adult besides me.
1. Have you done it?

As of Thursday I hadn't heard from him, so I emailed him. He wrote back
"I have another interview tomorrow (Friday). Please hang in there, I know you are anxious to hear my decision, and I will let you know ASAP."
I still haven't heard back anything. It seemed as though he would let me know either way.
What should I do?
Should I email him again, or would that make me seem over anxious?
I really want this job so I don't want to ruin it, but at the same time, the waiting is killing me.

Edited to add a new question:
My dog, in her 9 years of existence, has only slept in my mother's bed or downstairs by herself. The past 3 nights she has taken it upon herself to come sleep in my bed (not that she is unwelcome there but if I ever tried to get her to sleep in my bed before she would usually run away). Why does she suddenly love me TQC?
