And because I'm so original...and don't read the front page of LJ...
What was the first band/singer you became a fan of?
What do you think was the most shocking moment in the show, whether from a flashback or on the island?
What is your favorite episode? Season?
Who is your favorite character? Did you like Boone as much as I did?
Do you like this new plan of having 16 episodes a season and starting them late in the year, then running them back to back in the spring?
really, i want the same book, but just to get here faster. is there any way that i can fix this?

I screen-capped it, but the next time I went back there, it was normal again.
My question is this: WTF?
2. What is your least favourite song (or songs) by your favourite musician?
3. Daft Punk question: Preferred robot?
4. How desperate would you have to be to make it with a robot?
5. Beatles question: If you had to pick 10 songs to describe The Beatles to some unfortunate who had never heard or even heard of The Beatles before, which 10 would you pick? Not necessarily your favourite, more which songs you think are most essential.
And who would you most want to introduce The Beatles to? A person from the past, a person from a distant future where they've been lost and forgotten, a person from a remote Beatleless island, an alien? Or someone else?
6. Do you have the surname the same as somebody famous? Unless you want to divulge your surname and be specific, what are they generally famous for?
2. What's your favorite snack food?
3. When does it become weird to respond to a post? Two days after it's written? A week? Does it matter if it's in a community or in a personal journal?
Are there songs on there that you do not listen to but think you should?
Any bands on there that you think few people know about, but should?

4. do we take ourselves too seriously?
How do you act like a friend and how do you act like an acquaintance?
The issue is sleeping habits. She wants to sleep from 11 pm - 7 am, I want to sleep from 2 am - 10 am. She can't sleep any later due to classes, and I have an extreme amount of difficulty falling asleep before 1 am (as in, I usually am awake in bed for 2-4 hours even if I've taken a full dose of NyQuil or the like). Additionally, I'm a very light sleeper, and she's very inconsiderate when she's getting ready in the morning or when I try to nap after class (turning on the lights, letting guests in the room and chatting with them even though we've previously agreed to not allow guests when the other is sleeping, making excessive noise, etc.) I've spoken to her about this and thus far, nothing has changed, and I've been constantly exhausted since moving in and my schoolwork is suffering as a result.
What should we do? Should I try to get some sort of mediator so we can work things out, though I doubt there's any feasible solution (any way we cut it, I'm out more sleep than I can spare? Should we look into switching roommates to ones more compatible with our sleep schedules? She has said I don't bother her when I stay up, and when I suggested switching "if this becomes an issue" she seemed very opposed to the idea, but it's become a huge issue for me. Is there another possible solution that hasn't occurred to me? I've tried both staying up until I'm able to fall asleep right away, and going to bed when she does, neither is better.
ETA: I'm very skeptical of earplugs because I don't want to sleep through my alarm and thus miss my first class. I will experiment with them over the weekend, though; thanks to those who suggested it.
I woke up Fridayish to pain on the left side of my face. It only hurts when I open my mouth real wide, it doesn't hurt if I prod the area (inside or out), but it does hurt if I bite down hard. It hurts the most in the morning after I've slept and the least at night.
I have a history of grinding my teeth at night, so I'm hoping I just aggravated it or something and it'll go away. :(
ETA: Should I go see a regular doctor for jaw pain, or should I start with a dentist?
Which is better?
What's you favorite snack?
I didn't give a friend of a friend a ride home this morning. I'd never met him until last night and it struck me as odd that he'd ask me when there were other people that he knew leaving at the same time (and who and going to the same side of town... which was not where I was going) Would you find someone you didn't know asking you for a ride someplace several miles out of your way a bit of an odd request, or am I being hungoverly paranoid?
2.) Do you remember a cartoon called Denver The Last Dinosaur?
3.) Why is it that when you are late for work there is a cop right beside the whole way so you can't speed?
like, you went to bed with your pajama bottoms on only to wake up in the morning to find them balled up at the foot of your bed and you have no idea why?
and you weren't drinking or doing drugs or making sexy time. you just went to bed and woke up with your pants off.
I was thinking of doing so, but also wanted to include a question or two for the manager I interviewed with, to show that I am very interested in the position. Any ideas on what I could ask?
What's your favorite way to eat potatoes? If mashed, baked, in potato salad, how do you prepare it or prefer it prepared?
For those who are getting ready to have fall/autumn, are you excited? What's your favorite thing about Fall?
I was at a thai restaurant the other day and I had one sushi roll left and the waitress started clearing our table and she stood there and waited for me to stop talking and then ASKED ME TO EAT MY LAST ROLL so that she could take the plate!
Does anyone else feel like this is ridiculously rude?
if you were this man, how would you go about cornering the market on salt and/or water?
Out of the following, which would you choose, and why?

Additionally, 4 hours in to your punishment, loanwords takes pity on you and offers you a deal. You're allowed out of the room but in exchange, you have to choose one TQC member who has been banned, to be allowed back in to TQC. Do you take this deal? If so, who do you un-ban?
Three such vehicles are currently making a visit to our friendly neighborhood crack house across the street and I'm terribly curious as to what could be going on.
Bonus points for recipes.
ETA It can have mix-in stuff too. I know every time I ask my mom this question she'll just say a plain flavor, but I don't mind making ice cream ala Ben and Jerry's with stuff swirled in.
Did it get you "extra high" or have any other strange side effects?
Girls, do you wear your lip rings with the ball on the outside or the inside? I've seen both here and I'm wondering which is more common.
1.Where are you now, as you type this?
2.What did you eat for breakfast today?

2. WHO TAUGHT YOU HOW TO READ?
3. HOW MANY MORE TIMES TODAY DO YOU THINK I WILL HAVE TO HEAR THE SONG "PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN"? IT'S BEEN FIVE TIMES ALREADY.
4. YOU'RE WRITING A BOOK. IT CAN BE ABOUT ANYTHING YOU WANT IT TO BE. WHAT IS THE FIRST PARAGRAPH OF THIS BOOK?
5. WHAT'S ON THE AGENDA FOR TODAY?
EDIT: I've figured a solution to this, but thank you to all who gave two-cents!
Hello all. I'm an actor pretending to be a tech person. I am producing a two person show, and I need to build a self-standing simple window unit (for a college guy's shitty apartment).
1.) Where should I shop to buy the materials cheap? Can I just buy a window frame (a cheap one, not a pella window lol) or do I need to construct it from scratch?
2.) would it be a better route to go with a canvas/framed flat or to do like the window frame sitting on top of panelling or something?
3.) how to I make it self standing? L Braces? Can I just pick up L braces or build from scratch?
I do have a decent knowledge of around-the-house tools. I tried to find a photo, but no luck.
Can anyone help me determine what the scam is?
Sorry for being such a naive boob ;p

What's your favorite brand of sugarless gum?
Anyone else tired and low blood-sugary today?
Do you think it's cute when 2 year olds are dancing to club music with not-so-two y/o lyrics?
However, 2 days ago I stopped being able to receive emails and wasn't sure why. No confirmation emails, no Facebook notifications, no LJ notifications... nothing.
Finally, today... I realised the email address has randomly just changed to jazz_perryATyahooDOTcom.
What could have caused this change and is there a way to reverse it? Else, I'm going to have to edit all my details on every account I care to remember which sends me crap via Yahoo.
Figured it out!
Here's a new question just for the hell of it!
Do you enjoy yogurt? What's your favorite flavor?
When something bad happens that you JUST talked about, do you feel slightly guilty?
My husband and I were just talking about Ronald Reagan and arguing over who his first wife was. I was right. It was Jane Wyman. According to the Wiki page, she is 90. Hubby said "Wow. She's still alive? Well, that won't last long." And, sure enough, she passed away today.
ETA: 2. I just got a prescription for Valium 10 mg because I have awful neck and TMJ pain. Is this something I can take in the daytime or will I crash my car because I lack the muscle control to steer?
What would be a good thing to make for her that doesn't involve tofu and I (who am super picky) would also like?
I have an interview tomorrow but the headhunter still hasn't found out where exactly the interview is to take place (they company has 2 locations). I've called and left vms on her mobile so now I'm following up with an email. She signs her email with, Miss Chris Lastname, and her email address is miss.chris@______
Which introductory would you use?
"Hi Miss Chris, I just wanted....." or "Hi Chris, I just wanted..."
I can't remember how she answers her phone. I think she usually just answer with "Hello".
2. what was the last thing you ate?
3. who was the last person/animal you kissed?
4. when was the alst time you got laid? (bonus points for details)

your boss hits on you, WHAT DO YOU DO/HOW DO YOU REACT?
is there someone that your company/place of employment does business with that you talk to on a regular basis? do ya'll just discuss business or is it comfortable enough to talk about other things? (the weather, yall's weekend plans, etc) have you ever met the person or is it just kind of a phone relationship?
what are some questions you're frequently bombarded with regarding...
a) your relationship/SO/relationship status (if you don't have a SO)?
b) your job OR school?
c) your family?
d) your hobbies/extracurricular activities?
Do you like pierogies?
I got my hair cut a few days ago, and while I liked it that day, now that I'm used to it, I don't like it anymore. My friend who is in beauty school did it for me. Should I ask her to fix it or something, or just get it cut again somewhere else and avoid her?
Final Fantasy XIII and Kingdom Hearts 3. I'd like to see a sequel to Bully, too - but I don't think that's likely to happen.
I managed to pull up the online copy of my bill. The reading code was R, which means revised reading used to calculate the bill..
ok...what the hell does that mean? I can't find the answer on Ameren.com and google isn't helping too much.

Anway! What kind of soft, dental-work-safe foods are good to get post-face surgery? I'm already picking up a big tub o'yogurt to stave off the evil yeastie beasties.
Have you ever had oral surgery of any kind? What was it like?
I've only had one baby tooth pulled that didn't want to come out, and it was pretty uneventful since they just loaded me with novocaine.
2) If you are religious, do you pray for people like this? Why?
It irks me because to me, it feels like they're using their God as an excuse to project their own moral values onto other individuals. If the person in question asked to be prayed for, that's one thing, but it just really bothers me for some reason when religious types take it upon themselves to pray for a specific person to change their ways.
*note, this is purely an opinion and I'm not saying you're bad or wrong if you pray for someone else this way, It just bothers me!*
Do those words apply perfectly with a current situation in your life?
(the following questions are optional, a yes or no answer for that first one is perfectly fine.)
a. What situation was it?
b. Do you think it applies to pretty much everyone?
c. Has anyone (randomly) ever given you some advice/knowledge that you found amazingly applicable to your life? Did you think it was a huge coincidence or did you figure probably everyone can apply it somehow?
But now that I've been married for a few months (granted I'm comparing myself to one person consistently and to the memory of others) I realize that it's not just because I'm in an unfamiliar setting or what not. I really take forever to fall asleep!
So I did a bit of reading and found out that most people fall asleep about 15-30 minutes after they are in bed with the lights off (the random nights of sleeplessness excluded).
I've developed a habit since I was quite young not to look at the clock when I'm trying to sleep since I've heard seeing how long it takes makes it harder to sleep. But for the past couple of weeks I've been paying attention—it takes me anywhere from at least an hour (usually) to two hours or more (not that infrequently) to fall asleep. Every night!
So here's my question: Any ideas to help me fall asleep sooner?
If it helps, I think I stay awake that long because my brain won't shut up, not because I'm not tired (I usually go to bed because I'm tired rather than because "it's bedtime"). Also, I go to bed about 10-10:30 pm every night. I usually get up 7-9 am, depending on work schedules (7-8 is more common than all the way until 9, though).
Something I can do on a permanent basis, please. Not quick "fix its."
What's keeping YOU from getting any?
What is this "laughing gas" like? Will I even need it?
How about here?
What shape/s would they take?
Would they make noise/s?
Are they solid or do they move in some manner?
I haven't watched any of the 9-11 coverage today but she's focusing on the children impacted by it and I think that's very different from what we usually see. I watched HBO's Children after 9/11 special and it was excellent so I'm curious to see how Oprah does it.
Right now there's a boy about 14 years old crying and I want to die.
where are you from? aka, where do you live?
EDIT: ANSWERED; THANK YOU! :):):)
Who here loves salt like that?
2) Does anyone in your real life know about your LJ/other online accounts(excluding facebook and myspace).
3) Do you sometimes feel like you're leading a double life, if your IRL friends and family don't know about what you do online?
4) It rained all day, and it's still sprinkling off and on. Should I take a walk anyway, or just do DDR for an hour?
1) Not really, no.
2) Some know about it, but few know the links. My parents found mine once and I had a fit.
3) In the sense that they have no idea what cat macros, chatspeak, LJ, etc are, yeah. I can't talk to them about it because they're not used to internet culture, so it feels secretive sometimes!
1) Do you know what the origin of these icons is?
2) Have you seen any other variations?
3) Would you be willing to link me to them?
Yeah, i know I said two but big deal!
You and this guy have never had the actual "exclusive" talk but it was always assumed. ( I know.. u and me, etc. )
He's avoiding you like crazy. Won't text you back, avoids you at work and the couple times you've tried calling to sort it out he said he'll call you back.
He's been seen leaving work with thsi other girl, eating lunch with her, flirting with her, etc. He hasn't said one word about it to you, but everyone's seen the behaviour.
You have an opportunity for some intimate time with an old flame.
Do you take it?
Should you have revenge sex if you are person in this scenario?

eta: I fixed the picture..
Does anybody know the incubation contagious time frame? We are planning to visit a friend and her baby on Thursday morning (with a non-refundable airline ticket), but I'm now on the fence of whether or not to cancel. I don't want her fever to spike again or to give it to the other baby.... but I REALLY don't want to cancel.
We have a maid who comes here once every two weeks to clean up. She doesn't speak any English, only Portuguese, which is convenient for her because we all speak Portuguese. Well she called me today saying she's taking an ESL class, but she seems to be the only person who doesn't know a single word of English. So she came up with the idea that she could pay me if I taught her some English, probably on Sundays for an hour because that's the only time I can really do it.
So my question for you is: How do I go about teaching somebody English who knows absolutely nothing? Do you think I should start of with just basic grammar rules and maybe some reading? Maybe just basic vocabulary? I'm not sure how I should approach this...I forgot to say, I'm only sixteen years old so obviously I have no experience with this kind of thing.
Thanks in advance!
When was the last time you said you felt bad for someone? When was the last time you felt it, but didn't say it?
So, my question is:
Edit, because I worded it stupidly: 1. Would you be walking or jogging if you were going 4MPH?
All clothing will be borrowed or bought, so I don't need to sew anything from scratch, thank goodness.
1. I know for sure I'll need the actors' shirt, pants, and shoe sizes, but what other measurements should I take?
I'm taking the ACT this October. I'm a senior now, and the only time I've taken it was my sophomore year and I got a 27. I sucked at math back then and have since improved GREATLY- like, I had a C- in Algebra I back then and am now getting As in pre-calc/trig.
2. Think I have a chance of hitting a 33?
3. Any test-taking tips you swear by?
I'd be provolone because I'd taste delicious melted on bagels and sprinkled with garlic sauce. I would nibble a little, every now and then, but I'd savor me.

1- What do you do when you're stuck?
2- Should I just chill out for a few hours and brainstorm later tonight?
Also, have you ever had an orgasm in your sleep?
I never did up until about a month ago. Now I have a few a week. It's awesome.
What did you have for lunch?
What do you use to freshen up the air in your place?
So please share: if you have been proposed to, how did it happen? Or if you were the one proposing, how did you do it?
If you haven't been proposed to, do you have an ideal way you'd like it to happen? A way you hope it will never happen?
And do you think that the week previous thing was a cute or strange idea?
All I know is, I don't want a big public display, so nothing during a big family event or in a restaurant or anything. I'd be mortified.
1. what do you think of this assignment? do you think it sounds fun?
2. do you think asking us to stereotype people is a bad idea for a school assignment?
3. if you had to do this assignment, how would you "observe" the subject?
( Collapse )
EDIT: well, i live in Rome, so there aren't any Starbucks' or ballgame/concert type things here. apparently, Zac Efron is coming to Rome this weekend, so i'm going to observe all the Italians who think he's amazing even though they probably have no idea who he is, and just love celebrities. or i'll just do the park thing.
thank you for all the suggestions and comments.

Who here uses Dvorak on a regular basis?
Is it possible to be Christian and still find the theory of evolution plausible?
How do Christian who take the Bible literally and not an interpretation of God's word and history explain Dinosaurs? Fossils don't lie.
Did you ever go to Sunday school ? Did you ever ask the teacher things like this?
(my mom told me I had asked questions like this, but in a 4th grade type of thought process, and rather then reason with me the teacher spoke to my mom and not bringing me back! How very Christian!)
If they go ahead and get the tattoo, do you pretend to like it?
My 20th birthday is next Tuesday and I have yet to officially plan anything. I don't really know what to plan.
1) Should I leave it up to my friends, and assume they will plan something?
2) Should I plan something myself? What should I do?
3) What did you do for your 20th birthday?
Note: 3 of my friends had birthdays last month: 2 turning 21 and 1, 20. To celebrate we spent the weekend at the beach, and took a trip to Busch gardens for the other 2...
idk why, but I just felt like throwing it out there.
OH! and for the past 5 birthdays, I've gone out to dinner. If I go out to dinner one more time I'm gonna punch a baby.
j/k. I <3 babies. But you catch my drift.
Best Buy ?'s:
My mother just informed me that I got a call from Best Buy for an interview.
1) Have you ever worked for Best buy?
2) What was it like?
3) Whats the pay like?
4) Do they offer benefits for employees?
So far we have:
-pirate hats instead of traditional cone hats
-skull baskets for loot bags
-GOODIES include: beads, jewels, skeleton whistles, eyeball chocolates, eyepatches, skeleton socks, diamond rings, fake mustaches, gold hoop clip-on earrings
-black and gold plates and napkins
-table's centerpiece is a treasure chest fulled with beads and gold chocolate coins
-the birthday boy gets a much nicer pirate hat, a sword, and a parrot to wear
If your personality was just like mine and you had to make a license plate using just 10 letters and/or numbers to describe it, how would you do it? Keep in mind that of course you want the bonus points. DUH.
Do you have a dollar store (where everything actually IS $1, not the crappy 'Dollar General' variety) near you? Do you take advantage of it? If yes, for what? If you're outside the US, do comparable stores exist?

ETA: are you emo?
AND.. first disk has: 1) genesis 2) dont look back 3) unaired pilot
in that order... we're tempted to watch 'unaired pilot' first.... as that kinda makes since to us... BUT... it's the big "BUT" that's making us question the order on the dvd jacket and ourselves... HELP TQC? what should we do? THANK YOU in advance!
EDIT: OR am i thinking it all out incorrectly.. and they're actually referring to an actual airplane pilot...and i'm a total idiot?? -still confused-
EDIT (PART DEUX): THANK YOU (merci beaucoup for 'canadian') We are now going to experience, what is the show "Heroes"... (fade to black, exit left). and g'night!
2. Favorite band and why?
3. Any new seasons of shows you are looking forward to?
4. Favorite fast food place?
5. Are you dressing up for Halloween this year? If you are, what are you going to be?
What should I serve at this pity party?
What kind of decorations should I have?
Would you like to come to my pity party?
Would you like to beat me over the head with a "GET OVER IT" stick? Please describe this stick, in great detail. Pics if you have 'em.
that really annoys me because if you are actually going to email them you cant copy and paste you have to type it all out
2. why do some brides 'trash' their gowns? why is this a growing trend? picture op?

WTF is he talking about? Is that street slang for "Got any crack???"?
That's the second time someone has stopped me in a store asking me for drugs(I think).
How could they get pregnant without infecting their partner?
This has always baffled me.
What's a common trend in your journal?
Also, when you sweat, which part of your body sweats the most?
It must be side on, and a person lying on their side, or possibly stomach... and holding their torso up with a straight arm. I can find lots where they're on their side propping their head up with a hand... I don't want the hand to be on their head. A bent arm where the forearm is on the ground is alright too, but I'd prefer straighter...
Is it good?
Is it reminiscent of an actual Oreo?
Or is it like a snack cupcake?
It says that it has Oreo creme.
Is this true?
It looks like that whipped cream crap in every other generic snack cake out there.
Which program did you go through?
How was your experience?
How much did it cost you?

What did you have for dinner?
What can I do to stop my legs itching when the hairs grow back from shaving? I never used to have this problem. I use shaving cream and a sharp razor...and I don't use drying soap. Any ideas? I tried putting deodorant on them, but still it itches when it's growing back! it helped a little bit.
Waxing seems to help but it's not always feasible. Depilatory cream makes no difference..still itches when it grows in.
What are some good movies about strippers? Or that have strip club scenes.
NOT Showgirls or Striptease. :)
2. Pooping: feels gross or feels awesome?
3. If you took the GREs, how were they?
4. Are you very particular and detailed with your hairstylist over how you want your hair to be, or do you trust them to do their own thing?
Second question is this: do any of you know the songs played in the movie Shoot Em Up (with Paul Giamatti, Clive Owen, Monica Belucci mmm hot italian woman yum) especially in the beginning?
I know one song which is "If you want Blood (you've got it)" when Clive's character is skydiving and shooting everyone.
Thanks and have a nice night.
not in anyway at all. All my friends are gay. Well, all except for one boy. They're all waiting for me and him to turn gay.
2] Do you de-construct your food?
I constantly take apart my food. For example, if I have a snack wrap, I take it apart and eat everything separately. Same thing with Spring Rolls/Egg rolls, and sometimes sushi.
3] What's something you had a realization about recently?
That the word candelabra is not spelled 'candlebra.' My whole life has been a sham

5. When you were in high school, or if you still are in high school, did you/do you shower after gym class?

7. Do you have a bowl of potpourri sitting somewhere in your home?
8. When you were a child, did you have a stuffed animal or doll that you loved above all others? What was its name and where is it now?
9. What's something you think you'd like to do one day, but you don't know if you have the nerve?
Is sex different with a guy who's uncut? If so, how?
