What vitamin/herbal supplements do you take, if any? Currently I only take a women's multivitamin (and only then if I remember to, which is... twice a week). I also have the typical student-on-the-go-with-little-budgeting-skills diet, which revolves heavily around frozen meals and frozen margaritas.
So anyway, I'm working on eating (a lot) better and I'm thinking of incorporating maybe a fish oil supplement, too. Does anyone take that? What about vitamin E?
And finally, for people who actually drink 8 glasses of water or more a day-- do you notice a difference? I've been slacking off on that lately but I do recall it made me a bit bouncier and my skin a bit better. I am chronically dehydrated lately, which is probably bad.
1.) I have this coworker who only wears head-to-toe white, and he says it's because of this religion. What religion requires you to wear all white?
2.) How many kids in your graduating class have died so far?
If I wanted to download an older version of itunes, could I just move all my music files to a safe location (which I've done before when I've had to reinstall this shitty version of itunes like A MILLION TIMES, in fact the reason I'd just like to go back to the old version), then delete everything that has to do with itunes, then download the version I want?
Because when you download an update, it's completely different. It... builds off the older versions or something, right? I want to go back, so should I feel like I should just delete everything and start from scratch. Please tell me if this is wrong.
If it's relevant, I have a mac OSX 10.3.9.
edit: i totally figured it out.
edit: shit, i'm supposed to post a new question, aren't I?
uhh does anyone else type 'withought' instead of 'without' sometimes? probably more common, do you type 'typeing' instead of 'typing'?
It's a quarter past midnight. I'm very bored and don't feel like sleeping. I have a very strong desire to exercise but I don't own any gym equipment. It's near impossible for me to sneak out of the house as my mum is asleep on the lounge downstairs; it's smack bang in the middle of the front and back doors and she'll wake up if either of them are opened.
Oh wise TQC, what do I do for the next six or seven hours until I'm meant to be waking up?
I'm finishing up an assignment and can't think of more words I would associate with high-end designer cake. It's a little silly, but I figured if so many other things can be designer, why not cake?
What words would you associate with a pricy designer cake?
Would you buy a pricy designer cake?
Why do people confuse typos with not knowing how to spell?
How hard was it for you emotionally and financially to move out on your own for the first time?
I'm looking to move out next year with either my boyfriend or one of my friends and I'm totally scared about it. Yes, even though it's 12 months away. I have no idea what to expect. TQC, give me expectations!
How can I best come to terms with how gross co-ed dorm bathrooms are?
Is it possible for dorm bathrooms NOT to be disgusting?
for anyone who still supports president bush, can you give me any good reasons why? no one is really able to answer that question when i ask them.
Have you ever purchased an item you saw advertised on a TV commercial?
How did it work out for you?
(The Magic Bullet, OxyClean [before it was sold in stores] and Smart Spin containers.
The Magic Bullet [which has an unfortunate name that sounds like a sex toy] is a fairly good system for blending drinks and foods quickly. OxyClean works, but isn't the miracle that the commercial made it out to be and Smart Spin is a rip off. The lids don't stay on well, so foods tend to spill. Also, the spinning thingy tends to fall apart.)

1. When we were children we used to have a toy you looked through, kind of like binoculars, you'd load a circular piece of cardboard with tiny coloured slides into it and click your way through a film. What was this called? I thought they were called viewfinders but I haven't had much luck.
2. There was also a second cinema type toy that you held in one hand, looked through only one eye, and was operated by batteries. You'd load small brown reels of film onto it and operate it by a trigger button. It would show you short cartoon reels, like Captain America and the Incredible Hulk. What was this machine called?
Time for questions from someone who has not slept correctly or to the needed extent all weekend! Yay!

In way northern states, such as Wisconsin and Michigan, when your average highs are in the low 30s/upper 20s for a few months, does the snow ever melt off? Or does it just sort of pile in places where sunlight doesn't melt it?
I want to sell all of my little girls outgrown clothes on ebay.I have a massive garbage bin bag full from the last 5 months BUT I got quoted $30-$40 for shipping! I browsed through other bulk lots and many of them list shipping as $9 for what looks to be the same amount of clothing, if not more. Is there a cheaper way I can post the items? I'm not interested in selling them separately, I have before and it was a massive pain in the back-cushion.
Secondly, I have been saving for quite some time for a really decent digital camera. I just peeked and I have about $1200.00 saved. Can anyone suggest any really good cameras that are relatively easy to use? I'm a complete newbie to photography but I want a decent camera. I'd mainly be using it to take pictures of my daughter. Preferably available in Australia.
I...need to get a new (laptop)computer, so:
Where did you get your computer?
What kind of computer is it?
Do you think ebay is a safe place to buy a computer?
I want something kinda light, so I can carry it around without breaking my back(my laptop now is about six lbs -and it's about seven years old).
And...I would prefer to have a mac, but I wouldn't mind having a pc.
Also, if you've been to/ are going to college:
Did you live in a dorm?
Do you think you were ready to leave home(if you did)?
Google is not being very nice to me today. >_<
Do you know of any websites where I could find sketches of daisies? I need one for a tattoo that I am getting, and I cant seem to find any good ones on google!

2) What is your favorite emoticon?
3) What is the name of your favorite place(s) to get pizza? What toppings do you get?
4) Do you use hand sanitizer? Why or why not?
5) What is your favorite city?
1) Something that's making me blush!
2) I always like "XD" and "o_O" and its variations.
3) My ALL TIME favorite is a local place called Napoli's. You order it by the piece (they are baked a tray at a time, so you can order say, 8 pieces, or you can order a full tray which is about 20 pieces.). I get grated parmesan. My other favorite is Pizza Hut, I get the thin crust with pepperoni & green pepper.
4) Yes. I am an emetophobe and during sick season it helps me cope, even if it's not really doing anything.
5) I do love Boston, and Paris was awesome as well.
Hi, gang... help me solve some vacation conundrums.
1. Would you rather go to India or Ethiopia?
2. Would you take a ferry from Istanbul to Odessa, or would you be afraid it would sink?
If you HAD to be named after one of the 50 (US) states, which would it be?

Thank you!! Any help would be appreciated.
What's a good estimate for the amount of varying kinds of alcohol (beer, wine, liquor) that would adequately cover a party of 40 drinkers over 3 hours? Finger foods/appetizers are being served, and not everybody drinks every thing.
For those with significant others, do you watch porn with them, or do you find it weird?
My husband says it feels weird to him, and I'm wondering if anyone else feels the same way.
Alright Ladies....I'm doing something character-ish on Thursday night. Show me the sluttiest make up on a woman you can find, please.
Or if you don't feel like working up images, what are the colors of eye make up and thickness of eyeliner that just scream SHE'S A SLUT!?

What's the last embarrassing thing you've done in public?
If you can't remember that, what's the last thing you saw someone else do?
I just walked nose-first at full speed into a pane of glass. I don't think my nose is broken, but I'm starting to taste blood. I'm sure that's going to look fabulous later!
A family friend is doing a HUGE service for me by watching my kidlet full time right now for a very very low cost. We are piss poor and will be for a few months - and even then, we will only be able to actually be on the poorer side of normal. I am away nearly 12 hours a day, 5 days a week and yes, I've weighed all my options -this is the way it is right now.
So this lady who watches the baby is a dear, sweet lady with four kids of her own and a little 3 year old girl. She has a lot of family that lives in the area and they are all very involved with each other (I say this because she usually isn't in need for much).
What can I do to thank her? She isn't very forward, she's shy and sweet and she does a greta job taking care of my fussy infant and she should be paid a lot more than she is but we simply do not have it. I want to come up with things I can do for her but I can't think of much - maybe ffer to pick up milk for her if she needs it, etc etc.
Any bright ones TQC?
I've listened to a shitload of indie-pop, rockabilly, & garage the past few months.
What was the soundtrack to your summer?
What's the worst physical discomfort you've ever been in?
I was at Electric Picnic this weekend, and when I was at the Beastie Boys, right in the middle of 'No Sleep til Brooklyn', I got headbutted and taken to first aid. They felt my neck, said there was a slight chance it could be broken, so I had to go to the field hospital. To make sure my neck didn't move, they strapped me immobile to a board. I spent the next five hours strapped to the board, going from place to place, being examined, and absolutely bursting to go to the toilet.
In the end? My neck was absolutly fine.
What's something you do when you're alone that you wouldn't do in front of others?
1. How would you describe your relationship with your mother? How about your father?
2. If it has been five years or more since you began living "on your own", could you live with your parents again for an extended period of time?
3. My Babydaddy's mother has asked to take my 2.5 year old somewhere that would require an overnight stay. She is currently dating a man, whom I have only met twice. He would also be spending the night with them. Would you let her go? (Yes, I am a total spaz.)
What is your opinion on Rob Zombie movies?
I'm trying to decide on a class, and I figured making TQC make my decision would be much more fun than flipping a coin:
Would you rather be good in music or art, and why?
Also: My to be in-laws are coming...I need quick and easy to make lunch ideas. I was thinking along the lines of chicken curry salad, something I've already made for them...Ideas?
My sister will be turning 18 on the 11th.
What should I get her?
serious and non-serious answers welcome.
Oh, and a "toy" has already been suggested, and seriously considering, just to get a call from Mom going "oh god, you should have seen her reaction", XD
1. Can't take her out. I live 8 hours away. Won't see her again until most likely Spring Break or her graduation (sad, huh?)
2. She's got a sound system for her vehicle, along with all the electronic gadgets a teen wants, XD
3. She's got a belly ring (has had it for 2 years)
4. Can act like a spoiled snot, but then again, she is.
what do you do during power outages at night when you're alone?
I need somewhere to host a site.
My mom works at a tiny quilt shop, and they need a website - nothing too grand or special, but something. And I need to do this for them, but I need somewhere to host it.
Turn on your way-back machine and tune it to your days in junior high or middle school.
What is something you wished someone would have warned you about before you started junior high/middle school? Advice you wish/ed you would have received for that age?
(One of my cousins started 7th grade last week and somehow we all forgot to mention the part about having to change in a locker room thing to her. Oops.)
Are the people that run LJ furries? I mean come on....a talking, pant eating goat??
Is there any way to tell if you're pregnant before a missed period?

Thanks for all of your advice!
Have you ever had your lymphnodes under your jaw/neck be swollen and painful? So swollen you can feel the lump under your neck?
How about JUST ONE SIDE, and with no other indications that you are sick at all?
Am I dying, Dr. LJ?
1) What is the last interesting thing you learned/found out about?
2) What is your favorite brand of jeans? If you don't prefer any brand, what is your favorite fit of jean, and why?
3) Can they take in the thigh area of a pair of jeans without affecting the way the waist fits?
1) I found out my dad knows Dr. Keith Ablow. Seriously! He worked on the plans for his house on Plum Island, MA. We were watching TV one day and my dad goes, "HEY! I KNOW HIM!". haha ;)
2) As far as brand, I usually go for GLO "Flame" or LEI bootcuts, because they fit me well. For a general fit, I go for wide flare jeans. I have a heavy middle with slender legs, so I feel like it balances me out.
3) I would like to find this out, because I have to buy jeans to fit my middle, and that leaves the area through the thigh baggier than I'd like it to be. I only need to take it in like, an inch on each leg, just so they show off my bum and thighs, haha. I'm just afraid that taking in the legs will alter the way the whole pant fits...I don't get many clothes altered, so I don't know how it all works.
What are you favourite things to bake? sweet or savoury, doesn't matter, but I'm wanting to start baking more, especially stuff to have as snacks. I would love some recipes!
Do you talk to yourself when you're alone?
I'm playing house with my sister (I recently moved in with her). Her old room mate finally got his stuff today (which is kind lame since he's really fun) and my mom's shamooing our carpet soon!
So. What color should I paint my room? I like teal, cranberry, sage, chocolate, and butter. I also like liking weird color names. I've been thinking of painting just one wall cranberry and leaving the rest white. I'm kind of boring and might want to leave it all white.
Give me fun ideas?
Choose! Soft tacos or crunchy tacos?
Tacos or burritos?
I am looking for a Roman Catholic group on LJ for the Toronto area, so I can ask a few questions. Anyone know of/if there is such a group on LJ? I tried looking but got nowhere.
If not, then I'm hoping some of you guys in here could help.
Is there a cost to baptism?
I know I could just ask the pastor but something like "Hey, how much is it gonna cost?" seems kinda tacky to ask.... **shrugs**
Theres black dots all over my roses' petals, is there something wrong with them?

I juggle my senior year of Cyber School, 3 college classes, excersize, and a boyfriend into my schedual everyday. Would I be able to handle having a job without a nervous breakdown?
if so what kind of job should I get? I have exerience in food service and retail, but neither of which were pleasant.
Would you rather walk barefoot across moderately hot coals or really cold snow? Let's say the distance is about ten paces, just for the sake of argument.
I recently sold books on half.com, including a Chemistry lab manual that my instructor decided not to use. It was brand new. I listed it on half.com the way you're required to--by using the ISBN. I priced it to be the cheapest so it would show up first and sell quickly at $30.00. It sold the next day, and I shipped it out the day after that. Now the buyer is contacting me "Is it the book or the workbook?" I replied "It's the workbook :)" and the buyer replies back:
Comment/ Question:Thank you, but i do not need the workbook i need the
actual book so when i receive it i will be returning it back to you. When
i do this i will expect my money back.
Am I at all required to give her a refund? What grounds does she have to demand a refund like that? And was it just me, or was her reply a little asshole-y?
Edit: For the record, my listing just said "Bought brand new, professor says "You won't need it!" as the headline, and the actual listing said "My loss is your gain--I bought this book for 70 dollars, only to be told we wouldn't be using it for this class."
Let's say you're in your mid-twenties and casually seeing someone for a few weeks also in their mid-twenties. The person you are seeing is a virgin (you don't know this). When should they tell you that they haven't had sex before? Right before they get lucky, at dinner, out of nowhere, not at all?
How often do you exercise?
How often do you eat fast food?
How often do you drink soda?
Also, I have an English paper due tomorrow. Not that long- about 27 full lines of text. But I just really don't want to do it and I keep putting it off. My class is tomorrow at 12 pm. Should I suck it up and do it tonight, or should I wake up extra early tomorrow and get it done then?
1 - I run 2 miles, 5 days a week.
2 - About once a month.
3 - About once every two weeks I'll have a can... but I generally don't drink the whole thing.
you're stuck in rush hour traffic on your way home.. when you look to your left and who do you see? (insert your favorite musician/actor/actress here)! YES, it really is them. EVEN if you live in a dingy ass town, YES! it is them.. what do you do? (try to sneak in a picture? wave? lol stare?)
if somebody waves in your direction, do you assume it's you that they're waving at? what if you turn around and realize there's nobody behind you so it HAS to be you that they're waving at, do you wave back?

1. If you were in a relationship that had serious problems, would you seek couples counseling, or just break-up?
2. How about if you were married? Would you seek therapy then if you were having serious issues, or just get a divorce?
3. If there is a difference in your #1 and #2 answer, why?
What's the most useless question that could possibly be posted??
Have you ever shoplifted?
Have you ever had the urge to shop lift?

I just paid 90 dollars for a psych textbook that I could have gotten for 54 if I had gotten it 20 minutes earlier. I'm moderately pissed.
1. Is it silly of me to get angry over something like this?
2. When was the last time you paid too much for something?
Tomorrow I begin commuting daily 45 minutes to and from school.
THUS I need to update my Ipod.
What do you like listening to while driving, TQC?
I'm up for anything but would enjoy avoiding country music. Nothing against those who love country, I just do not.

What is something people notice most about you/give you compliments on?
Whilst hiking in Yosemite NP, California in early August, I slipped and did *something* to my ankle. It swelled up and was hard to walk on for a day or so, but I could put weight on in the next day. It's almost a month on, and it still hurts, and if I move it a certain way, it feels like its stretched. There's no swelling/bruising, or anything. Now, I'm aware that my fellow LJers are not medical professionals [well you might be, who knows?], but I'm just wondering:
- Is this something I need checked by a doc, or is it something that will sort itself out eventually, just leaving a weak point in my ankle?
- If my ankle is a weak point, is there anything I can do to help this? I do martial arts and kinda use my ankles a lot.
Have they stopped making peanut butter with honey altogether? I really liked that stuff.
What font browser do you use? Is it free? If so, would you kindly link me to where you got it. Every time I go looking for one I find ones that suck. I don't want a sucky one, I want one thats made of win!
If you lived near me, would you help me pack?
I'm moving to a house that doesn't have a washer and dryer. :(
Where are the best deals on washers and dryers online? Searching online I have realized that EVERY website has "the lowest prices" and "best deals on the web" in their descriptions. ::headdesk::
WHT TM DO U USLLY GO 2 BD?
After reading a book about ADD, I feel like it would be really beneficial for my mum to read it because a lot of what it says might provide insight to the way she is. She's been told by doctors that she has a lot of things, including that, so I don't think she thinks much of this diagnosis in particular. How do I bring up a topic like this? She's impossible to talk to about anything, ever, because she's temperamental and horrible most of the time, and so for around a month I've blown off the idea of discussing it with her, but I feel like it might change everyone's life for the better. How would you go about trying to bring it up or discuss it in a sensitive way?
What's with all the dead baby snakes around my neighborhood?
Silly and serious answers are both welcome.
why do i have to be so shy?

It's almost September 5th. Where the heck did my summer go?
In your opinion, what is the greatest action movie of all-time?
I don't care if you live in the Southern Hemisphere.
The correct answer to question #2 is Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
You know that really cute person who you go to school with/work with/see on the bus/etc? Yeah, maybe you're not single and maybe they have no idea you fancy them, but you do.
Ok, zombies are rising from the ground and are ambling about. Some are after the living, but most are just shambling aimlessly about. All the recent dead are back on their feet. During the initial panic of seeing the dead all ambulatory, there was an OMG stampede where that cute person was killed. Sad, but life isn't always puppy dog tails. You're the last one left behind and you pause over your idle crush's trampled corpse, ruing your passivity and so forth, when suddenly, the body begins to move, and slowly rises from the dead and starts ambling about aimlessly, completely unaware and unresponsive to its environment. All in all, maybe 10 minutes passed between death and re-animation, and they're probably still warm to the touch. As a result of the death-by-manyfeet stomp party, their pants's buckle completely self destructs and drops to the ground, revealing sexy sexy zombie ass. Even though they're dead, they're still looking rather fine. You look around and you're the only one within a New York mile of this freshly dead strip show.
1. On a scale of 1 to 10, how tempted would you be to conduct sexytime with this hottie, only-been-dead-for-10-minutes, zombie?
2. Say it was some famous sexy celebrity, like Jessica Alba or Christian Bale or Johnny Depp or Evangeline Lily or whoever you got the paparazzi hots for. On a scale of 1 to 10, what's your temptation level now?
3. On the other hand, let's say it was a famous person you really hated, like George Bush or Michael Moore or Bill O'Reilly or Paris Hilton. Their pants don't fall down, but they're ambling towards you. On a scale of 1 to 10, how tempted would you be to just walk over and punch them in the face?
Why will Fandango let my friends in Wisconsin and Arizona view the list of movies available on September 14th in my area (I'm in South Carolina), but when I try to look, it tells me there are no listings available? It does it all the time. It'll let me look ahead nine days (most of the time), but anything more than that? Oooh no. "Showtimes are currently not available for this theater. Please check back later." My friends, however, are able to see the showtimes.
Are there any sites that seem to hate you in similar ways?
Do you have your own journal on your friends list?
If so, why?
eta. Why is drinking milk when it's hot out such a bad idea? :(
OK so my bf got pulled over by the cops the other day. The reason: because his dad had just gotten the car and there were paper plates on it. The cops said that they pulled him over to make sure he had registration for the car since it had paper plates on it.
Now, I've known a number of people, myself included, who have had paper plates on their cars recently and havent gotten pulled over.
He got a hefty ticket for no insurance (no lectures on that please!). Now he has to go to court.
Was what they did legal? How do I find out if it was? I live in Iowa, if that helps.
