Mitty box

EDIT: Now with links to the pictures!

1) Is it mean to send pictures of my son holding a handbag and a pink ball to my neo-con SIL?
2) I've been procrastinating about getting my other 2 wisdom teeth out. They are starting to hurt really bad now. How do I get over my dental anxiety? What would be a good pill I can take before the procedure (not a surgery, just a yanking) to help me relax?
3) I just drove for the second time in 4 years tonight! How long did it take before you were completely comfortable driving?
4) What's the last thing you cooked/prepared?
5) What's the last thing you got as fastfood?

Do the robot!

Have any of you ever robotripped? What was your experience like? My friend told me she's going to do it tonight and I'm kind of worried.

Why is it to damn hot in my room?

Should I eat chocolate ice cream or chili?

I have to go on a flight to Indonesia in 7 hours. Pfft. Early morning flight sucks.

1.How many panties should I bring for a 2 night, 3 day stay?
2.Here's a common question: Can I use my Creative Zen during the flight? It has a radio function which I'm not going to use but do you think it'll have any effect on the plane? (It's actually just a 45 minutes flight, so not a big deal for entertainment)
3.When will your passport expire?
4.Have you ever used the washroom on flight? How was it?
5.Have you ever had sex in the washroom on flight? Is it even possible??
6.Have you ever use the barf bag? What happened?

And in response to this:
Do zombies itch? Since, all they do is walk around and eat people but don't really care about their physical state. Never really seen them touch themselves in the movies too...

1. Why are you still awake? Assuming you're in a time zone where you probably should be sleeping.

I just don't feel like sleeping mostly because I'm bored which you'd think would make me want to go to sleep but I just want to do things.

2. What do you have to do tomorrow? Do you think you'll get it done.

I'm feeling low so I'm going to cheer myself with retail therapy and get some new shoes and a hoodie I've wanted for a while. I might also go to a thrift store and see if I find anything worthwhile. It's my dads birthday tomorrow and I haven't gotten him anything yet, whoops, so I'm going to get stuff tomorrow.
I really hope I get everything done. I probably won't but I'm going to try really hard.

3. What's the last thing that made you sad?

My boyfriend assumed I didn't want to go see a band tomorrow night with him and his friends and I felt really left out and like he didn't want me there.

4. Who is your favorite tv chef?

I love Alton Brown. And the Ace of Cakes people.

For those of you who have ordered from the horrible Goliath that is ticketmaster
How long did it take your ticket to arrive via standard shipping?
If it didn't arrive on time, did they refund you?

(read only if you feel inclined to)
Now, in the real world 11 days would be plenty of time for an envelope to go from point A to point B. However, in the business world they take their sweet effin' time. I'm wondering if its enough time. I scanned through the help section and didn't see anything on return policies concerning shipping. I emailed them but their customer service staff is taking ages.  Their express shipping is 15+ dollars. Since I'm already paying sixty for tickets, that is not an option. Then again, 15+ dollars for shipping of an envelope would be out of the question in the first place. Highway robbery! Also, Will-call isn't an option for some reason unknown to me and I live 2 hours from the venue.

Update: The crisis may have been averted. Thank you for your assistance team TQC.

1) what was the last seriously stupid thing you did at work?
2) what is your favorite drinking game?
3) have you ever lied during a game of "i never"? what did you lie about? why did you lie?
4) do you know anyone who exhibits the three major signs of sociopathy? (the signs being: inability to resist certain urges, a fascination with fire or destruction in general, and a lack of empathy for others.)

i work nights and thus need to stay awake until about 8am. staying awake is not a problem. however, i'm bored out of my fucking mind. sex and masturbation are out of the question, because i'm at a friend's apt and would feel HELLA weird masturbating in the living room. so i have no idea what i want to do. i feel like getting out and driving somewhere, but it's 3am and the only places open are denny's, another diner, and the grocery store. wtf do i do for the next five hours?

1. What's the weirdest compliment you've received lately?

2.  When was the last time you cried, and why?

1.  Someone complimented my teeth today.  I think teeth compliments are slightly weird.

2.  I cried earlier today, after I found out that a family friend died this morning.

When's the last time you got some lovin'?

Will you give me some? I am on the rebound but I'll treat you nice and make you a cheesecake.

Should I demand my ex-boyfriend buy me birthday presents, since before we broke up I dropped 200$ on him? He dumped me right before my birthday, and my friends say I should be out for blood and a little bit of cash.

ETA that my last question is not serious.

Mornin, TQC. Here's today's round 1.

Your significant other left their email inbox open on your computer.

1. Do you look?

2. What do you look at/for?

3. What would you do if you found recent responses to ads for a personals site (, etc)?

4. Would you confront them? (If so, what would you say?)

5. If you found out your S/O was snooping in your mail, would it jeopardize the relationship?

What can I do to stop my apples from absorbing an onion-y smell while in the fridge?

I can't keep them in a fruit bowl because I have a munch-munch cat and I always seem to get fruit flies. I keep them in a bag in the fridge, but they still seem to get a smell/taste to them.

Round 2

You've been dating this person for about a month. You knew prior to you two starting to date that they had gotten out of a 1.5 year relationship 4 months before you started dating.

1. Would you be concerned about the ex coming back into their life?

2. Would it affect your relationship if they were still friends with their ex?

3. What if they just told you today that they were engaged for 6 months of that relationship?

4. What if they had told you before you started dating? Would it have changed whether or not you would have started dating them?

5. Would it make a difference (and if so, what difference) if the REASON they broke up was because the ex "realized" they weren't bi, but were gay/lesbian?

1. Do you have the company Empire Direct in your area? If so, can you sing their phone number?

2. How about Scruff McGruff, the crime fighting dog? Can you sing his address?

3. ? (I can't think of something else, so give me answer to whatever question you think should be there.)

4. Can you show me a picture of your favorite stuffed animal?

5. If you sleep with a stuffed animal, do you take it with you when you go on trips?

Dialing for . . .

Have you ever used a telephone with a rotary dial? If so, how old are you, and in which country do you live? If you haven't, have you ever SEEN one?


Yes, I have used a rotary dial phone. I'm 51, and I live in the U.S.


I see it hasn't been long enough for rotary dial phones to disappear. I forgot about people hanging onto the old phones.
HP-DH-Deeply Preturbed


Right now, if I had paid 500 smackers for an iphone; I'd be wittle upset.

Wouldn't YOU be a little upset if the phone you paid 500 dollars for was suddenly reduced to TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS?


Can they get a refund?

Do you ever think they'll come out with a pay-as-you-go-iphone?


That's the only way I would be able to afford one.

Movie question

I have the most vague question that I'm thinking there's no way in hell I'll get an answer to but I'm going to try.

A woman I work with was flipping channels and saw a snippet of a movie. All she remembers is that there was a woman with really short red hair that did the little flip up thing in the front (she calls it the "duck thing") holding some beer over the fence like she was trying to invite someone (possibly a guy?) to a party.

She loves that haircut and is trying to figure out who that was, what movie that was, something like that. Anyone have any clue?

I am...going on a six-seven hour road trip to visit my boyfriend in a week and a half.

How often should I stop?
What food/drinks should I bring?
What are some good road trip songs?

Round 3 (I know you guys love me today.)

1. You're going on a 10 hour road trip with your significant other (5 hours each way). What do you do in the car to keep yourselves entertained? Any and all suggestions would be great.

2. I have a blue bottle that I'd like to fill with some sort of semi-potent but sweet (and one that doesn't burn your throat when you take shots of it) alcohol/hard liquor to sip on throughout the day. Suggestions?
(*EDIT* Not while driving!!! This is for when we get to the faire the next day.)

3. What's your opinion of people who play D&D? (Snide remarks expected and encouraged. I'm a gamer, I can take it.)

Food questions. I'm hungry!

1) Inspired by the chocolate post... If you eat These, what is your method of eating them?

2) What is your favorite variety of these truffle balls?

3) I'm going to Chili's tonight. What should I order?

4) What is your favorite salad dressing?

5) What do you put in your tacos? Crispy or soft?

1) I eat the outer shell first, then eat the creamy middle part.

2) Dark or Milk chocolate!

3) I was thinking ordering the bottomless chips & salsa to share with everyone, and a garden salad. There's not much meatless stuff there, but I'm open to ideas!

4) I really love italian, ceasar, and ranch :)

5) A tiny bit of refried beans, tons of lettuce, tomato, onion and pepper, jalapenos, shredded cheese, and taco sauce. Crispy, always always always.

edit: shit, I forgot I posted another question a little bit ago, my apologies for the too-soon post!

odd thought hit me the other day at a bus stop

I'm not sure on the specifics behind this, feel free to chime in on the whys of it if you know, but it is something of a tradition that when you go and see the Pope (not just the current one) you must kiss his ring. It is either when you first goto see him or just before you leave but the kissing of the ring is key.

It's an odd tradition and it may have to do with luck but that's not the point. I personally would not do it regardless and that's just for this stray notion I had... you suppose he washes that thing between kisses?

Do you like incense?
Do you prefer cones or sticks?
Do you have a particular brand you love? scent?
What is the best kind of cones to get? I have a few I had gotten at a Goodwill. These burn very nicely and I've even had them for a while. On the other hand, I have these Dollar tree ones that are crap- I just don't know what brands to look for in the cone style.
I'm most likely going to a shop that has a lot of incense so as to stock up this coming week, so I was wondering what TQC thought-

I'm thinking of composing a mix cd with songs to have sex to. (Yes, my mind is still on sex.) I have a few ideas, but would like input. Got any songs to get it on to?

Requirements: Something with a beat, no Barry White, something you would have sex, not make love to. The kinkier, the better.

My own ideas:
"Closer" -Nine Inch Nails
"Let's Go" -Lil Jon Feat. Trick Daddy and Twista
"Yeah" -Usher, Feat. Lil Jon and Ludacris
"Slither" -Velvet Revolver
"Get Ur Freak On" -Missy Elliot

I did;t know he had cheated on her, jsut thought he had ben very thoughtless and tactless about something invovling his ex. Yes, the one he cheated on my friend with. I have been texting my friend this morning about this thing.

So, I am asdking: should i a) spend my lunch break on the phone to my friend and b) brek the guy;s kneecaps, or will a swift kick in the balls suffice since he is also a friend of mine?

Fear of sexuality

I think I am a sexual anorexic.

I came out as a lesbian when I was twenty, but I've been dating men for ten years anyway, because I'm not attracted to them. I used to think I was suffering from internalized homophobia, which didn't make any sense because I was raised in a very liberal, loving, accepting family and social group. Now I'm pretty sure that's not the issue at all. I'm sure if I was straight, I would be dating women because I wouldn't be attracted to them. I am terrified of my sexuality. I wish I could only be attracted to myself.

I'm embarrassed about the way I'm acting at work when a woman I'm attracted to is there. I'm sure everyone I work with thinks I'm an idiot or severely deranged. I have a very simple job (Taco TIme) but when she is there, I can't use my head. I know I should be able to just treat her like anyone else and keep my attraction to myself and just act like a normal person, but I don't know how to turn this off. I've been taking an antidepressant for a couple years that was suppressing my libido and I recently stopped taking it. All of a sudden I'm staring at women constantly and thinking about sex ALL THE TIME and I don't know how to stop. I don't remember being this obsessed before I was taking the meds.

Can you give me some tips so I can relax? I do want to deal with my sexuality issues, but right now I just want to get through the next few days without getting fired or wanting to kill myself. My sexy coworker will be leaving to go back to school after that and then I will be able to breathe again.


So I'm contemplating going to the movies by myself cause I am so bored...what do you recommend I see?

What do you think I should do today in general?

My cousin (who's like a sister to me) is turning 21 in a couple of weeks. What kind of drinks would you recommend for her to try?

If it helps: our families don't really drink, so neither of us have a good idea as to what kinds of things she'd like.

I'm 22 and have tried a smirnoff and an amaretto sour, both of which I wasn't too fond of but I could get it down if I had to. And I really didn't like the Arbor Mist blackberry merlot...but since she hasn't tried any of those, she might.

Neither of us liked the non-alcoholic versions of champagne or beer.

Oh, and she's a college student, so try to keep the prices reasonable. ;)

Book Recommendations

I'm looking for some new good books to read. Examples of books I really liked are : I know this much is true, The Kite Runner, The Time Travellers Wife, She's come undone, The Lovely Bones. I'm also a big fan of interesting non-fiction books.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm pretty open to anything. The only type of book I've found that really can't hold my interest is science fiction. Anything else is fair game.

My best mate was whining for the 430043rd time last night about being overweight. I have little sympathy for him but I've always (always being the last 3ish years that he has complained of being overweight) been polite and patient with him. 

Last night I snapped, I said something close to "You know what? you are getting fat, quit fucking spending $100+ a week on MacDonald's and you might not be. Oh and the insecurity stuff is boring, get over it" Note I said GETTING fat, because at the present he is just quite overweight, not really fat.

He either starves himself or eats a whoooole lot of stuff and frankly I am sick of him bitching about it. He has SO many things going for him, he is sweet and very intelligent and personally I think he's quite attractive but so so clueless. We are pretty close but I am sick of trying to help him when he doesn't even try to help himself. What should I do about it? it is getting a lot deeper than the normal "I'm fat" thing. 

How can I help? I know that was really really horrible of me but it upsets me to hear him beat himself up so much then go eat fast food and be completely blazay to it! argh! I just want to help him out. Why would he continue whinging and be so depressed about his weight but keep buying junk food 
That is the first time I've ever said anything so cruel so please don't think I bully my mates like that heh =S 

Fine - ETA : My friend is overweight and miserable. How Can I help?

more teacherness

influenced by this question:

Some teacher friends of mine were saying that its a shame that terrible teachers tend to affect people's life more than the good ones, or that the bad ones are more memorable - and they said this was true even for themselves, who'd gone into the profession.

Do you think this is true? who was your  most awful school teacher?

funny childhood stories

So a few weeks ago I was browsing a community that advertised a sort of open "performance" show where people went on stage and read hilarious excerpts from diaries and things like that from when they were little kids and angsty teens. They linked the show to a website that had videos of people readings these narratives and open discussion boards with people sharing these funny stories and scans of old childhood misery. The name of the website has escaped me though, and I was wondering if any of you guys might know what I was talking about??

On that note, do you have a funny story that you wrote when you were younger?

And the chick I sat next to today was telling me how she had a huge reaction to her Tuberculosis test but never went back to the doctor coz she doesn't like to get shots. And then she coughed for like 12 minutes straight. And no one seems to know what they're doing, not even my supervisors.

Black Sheep
Summary: On a vast New Zealand sheep station, a reckless genetic engineering experiment goes horribly wrong, turning sheep into bloodthirsty killers.

Posted that roundabout February elsewhere. What I wanna know is if this ever actually came out? Trailer says out in March, website says out in June; outside of finding this online I never heard anything else about it.

Has it come out yet?

If you saw it, what'd you think?

I need fashion advice

I need fashion advice. Absolutely nothing I put together looks good on me. I know there is some "style" out there that fits me but I have no idea what it is and I'm tired of looking sloppy all the time no matter what I try.

I am very short. I can't really wear layers because my torso is too short and my hips are too wide. No pants are short enough for me. Seriously, petite sizes are still way too long on me. I'm about 20 pounds overweight, but I don't wear (fit into) plus-sized.

Where should I look to try to find clothes so I can actually look decent?

1] Please, tell me, what kind opinionated person on you? Do you force your views on others? Can you tolerate someone with completely different opinions than you?
I am completely indifferent to everything. I have no real opinions, and I see sides to everything. I don't agree with them or disagree, I just acknowledge all viewpoints without forming an opinion. I feel strongly about nothing. I also tend to contradict everything because of this.

2] How do you feel about Square Candies that look round?
I find them exciting.

3] What are you reading right now?
Eclipse. Which is weird, because I really hate vampire books. A lot.

Hey ya'll..

if you don't advertise it, would you, if you wrote some amazing, inspired post? would you forward it around to your friends who don't keep up with your eljay?

if you started another blog, outside of lj, would you tell your lj friends about it? your real life friends?

What do you think of the upcoming Geico "Caveman" TV show?
I thought the cavemen were hilarious at first in the commercials. but this is overkill. I have absolutely no interest in the show.. it just seems way too idiotic that they actually had the nerve to turn this into a TV show.

What did you eat for lunch today?
I had an egg salad sandwich. yum.

Do you buy snacks at the movie theaters despite the outrageous prices?

What's the last movie you saw in theaters? how was it?
that Halloween remake. it was alright.

Raccoon eyes.

Can you recommend a mascara?

I'm a drugstore kinda girl, because I loathe the mall and its prices.

I've used Loreal and bleh.
I've used Lancome, when I didn't care about spending 17 bucks a tube and bleh.
I currently use Great Lash waterproof and it's just not working like it used to.

I see ads everyday on TV, but how do you know which is a good one?

my friend gets off work at 9:30 and will then take the bus over to my place for movie night. we'll be watching You, Me and Dupree or Night of the Museum.

two questions:

1. what should i do until then? i don't have booze of any kind(if i had alcohol i probably wouldn't need to ask question #2).

2. how can i convince her Matt Dillon is an assface and makes terrible movies and that Night at the Museum would be the better choice in this situation? bonus points if you can include in the argument how to see passed her hatred for Ben Stiller. that's going to be the real challenge(i hate him too but i still liked the movie).

Resizing a ring

I lost some weight recently, and one of the weird places I lost in was in my fingers. Now my ring is too big and I have to get it resized. It's a silver claddagh I got in Ireland. Never having had to do this before, I don't know how it works. Do I just go to a jeweller and ask them to resize it? How much do you think it would cost? Do jewellery stores in the mall do it or do I have to go to a jewellery repair place?

So I have a bottle that says "use opener" on the lid. Problem: I don't own one. So how do I go about opening it? Preferably without destroying the bottle and/or myself.

Edit: Never mind, I got it with a fork. Only a small amount of splatter, and no destruction :) You can still answer in the non serious variety though.

1. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. King was a pacifist and believed that hatred and prejudice could be fought with love. Do you agree with him? Do you think that in all situations a peaceful response is the correct one?

2. And another, less obviously homeworky question. What are the top 3 movies in your Netflix queue?

Mine: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Casino, and Better Than Chocolate.

Cherry woes....

 So for a recipe I need black cherries. My sister and I went to whole foods in search of them and were basically laughed at. 
I know they are out of season but are out of season fruit impossible to get ahold of?
Do you think there's a place I could find some?

1. do you feel guilty when your friends ask who you have a crush on and you don't want to say 'cause you're embarrassed?

i had a little crush on this kid from work last year who i went to high school with but i never told anyone because i was embarrassed. i felt kind of guilty for it.

2. say you dated or liked someone for a long time, like practically in love with them. then they moved away or you just sort of felt like you got over them but lately you've been noticing the people you are attracted to or liking look similar. would you think you still had feelings for that person or that that was just your type?

At work, we have certain policies that we follow. However, there are always exceptions to the rules. So, when we do something that is against the normal policy, we simply note the name of the individual who gave us permission to do it. That way, if it's wrong, then we don't get blamed since we had permission.

So, my question is....what would you like permission to do so if it turned out badly you wouldn't get in trouble?

So my wisdom teeth are coming in and today I noticed the inside of my left cheek was swollen and there were 2 little white bumps back in there. They hurt like a motherfucker and I can't close my teeth together because the swollen cheek  gets in the way. Is that just from my wisdom teeth coming in? Do I have an infection? Has anyone else ever gotten them before? Thanks in advance.

Hey everyone. I am working on a museum this semester. I was wondering what you guys thought about the Neue Staatsgalerie by Stirling and Wilford Associates. I decided to pick this museum to analyize. If you guys have any great sources available or know of books or sites that are great for specifically this museum that would be great. Also just things by the architects would be nice too, like interviews. Hey if anyone has any personal photographs that they would like to share with me that would be even better. I keep coming upon the same set of photographs in books.

Having to analyse this museum is making me ponder about the the meaning of an art museum. What do you guys think? Museums are interesting because they are meant for both the individual experience and the collective.

Thanks for all your comments in advance.

I moved from California to Massachusetts for college and I am really, really homesick. I almost cried after watching Monk and Psych because I usually watch that with my family, and I started sobbing after I got off the phone with my dad. I have no real friends and hardly any casual acquaintances on this side of the country. What can I do to stop being so homesick? Is it true that the first month of college sucks for nearly everyone?


Where would you say is the best place to make friends? School, work? Events? Sports, social activities? The bar? 
Work has not been too successful for me, i'm pretty awkward and overly nice. What would you recommend for me?
