Also, I just made some chocolate chip cookies. Who wants some?
I just saw the movie and I don't really get the end.

my doctor has ruled out infection, embolism, pneumonia, and bronchitis.
the pulmonologist thought it was SILENT HEARTBURN, but i've been taking the meds for that for almost a month, and it's not helping.
so, tell me Dr. LJ/TQC:
1. what's wrong with me?
2. am i going to die?
3. what can i do to halt/stop immanent death?
4. will you buy me a pony if it's cancer?
Me. I don't feel like changing.
EDIT: Actually I think I will change.
What do you think of this one?
(Backstory: My mom had a cool, heavy, lots-o-metal-parts SLR from the 70s that I used back in high school for photography class. It was great, but she sold it without asking me. :( So now I want another. I can't remember what brand it was unfortunately.)
This 5 year old girl came into my work yesterday with her dad and she was telling my co-worker how she's going trick or treating for Halloween. She's going to be a princess, her daddy's going to be a vampire, and her mom "is going to be the Bitch of Halloween".
haha. My co-worker had her repeat it to her dad, and he started cracking up. I guess she meant "Witch".
2. Number one was totally a lie, how do you feel about that?
3. Actually The Great Pumpkin watches you, how do you feel about that?
Ok, I'm done.
What was it about?
Do you dream often?
[I just had a dream that I was climbing the grand canyon but it was all in black and white, I was very upset about that.]
HOWEVER I have a personal problem that's bothering me and I figured I'd ask you guys. My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship that's currently Charleston, West Virginia - Dublin, Ireland. We're used to the long distance thing, but we're still figuring out how to communicate since our usual method of cellphones is shot due to expense. The lack of regular communication is stressing me out badly, on top of a few other things like school work and my being in a foreign country for two weeks. The problem is that I'm taking the stress out on him, and I snap at him without realizing it. It's upsetting both of us; I love him and don't understand why I keep getting so snappy and losing my patience. :(
WHAT SHOULD I DO, TQC? How do I stop doing this? It's making me more stressed and AHHH. IT'S A VICIOUS CYCLE.
And for the none-drama: Ever come across a funny sample of Engrish?
I bought my friend a zippo in Vietnam that said, "if you want fuck smile when this lighter you hand me back."
ETA: We do use skype, and that reminds me.. Any suggestions in the headset department? I need a new one.

Are you "friends" with any of your co-workers on social networking/blogging websites (Livejournal, Myspace, Facebook, etc)? If so, have you had any issues or drama when you've posted about work-related problems?
I tend to keep my online social networking separate from my work/school, so I don't actively seek out my co-workers/classmates on Myspace or LJ. I probably wouldn't add them as friends to my Myspace so that I could be free to rant, and same for LJ.
I've put a few drops of lemon juice in before which was tasty, I'm debating experimenting with vanilla extract but I'm not sure how good that would actually taste.

Did you sing it when you were little?
Were you taught something different (eg, tiger instead of nigger)?
If you sang it the original way, were you told to change it?
We used to sing it in primary school, but were told to change it to tiger. I never realised what I was singing until I got older. And why we were singing it like that in Australia, I'll never know.

The place I consider my hometown is not where I was born or where I live now. My parents still live there, and I lived there from when I was 7 years old until I was almost 22. I guess I did most of my meaningful growing up there, so that's why.
BONUS: do you know where I can physically go and buy the Grey's anatomy trivia board game? If I can't find it while out shopping today I'll just buy it from the ABC.com store when I get home.
Have you ever done something like this?
If so, would you suggest booking hotel + flight through a site like Expedia, or finding a travel agent to make sure things are hunky dory?

OT: Does your car have a sun/moon roof?
Do you think you learn something new every day?
What do you think about people you see ordering for the other?
I usually let my fiancée order for me (fiancée sounds so pretentious and all 'look at me I can bag someone', but you said I had to call her that TQC, so it's your fault)[edited to change my abominable fiance to fiancee, which by the way has just removed any shred of liking I had for the word because it was gender-neutral]. It's either because:

2.When you are heating something in the microwave(say for 2-3 minutes), do you stand there and wait or do you bugger off and wait for the ding ding?
3.Are the microwaves killing you slowly?
4.Where did my desk go??
The kind that just sits in your throat and itches unless you are actively eating or drinking...and the moment your throat is idle, it wants to cough. The kind that keeps you up at night until you've fallen into a deep sleep. The kind that feels like a deep wheezing, whooping almost.
I feel dumb for thinking about going home for a cough alone but it's so annoying to cough every two minutes! I just don't have much faith in cough syrups..not sure why.

You're given the power to heal 100 dying people. They'll be cured from their particular injuries and ailments. In order for you to gain this power, you have to kill. You're given a sniper rifle that can fire from a 2 mile distance, and you're given a choice. You can kill the next person to walk out of the nearest mall, OR, you can kill 5 drug addicts hanging around outside a crackhouse, OR you can kill 10 convicts who are in the yard at a nearby prison. What do you do?
Your access to power just got greater. There is a devastating earthquake scheduled to hit a major city in El Salvador, and 100,000 people will be killed. You can save 50,000 of those lives. Again, all you have to do is kill people in your own city. You have a rocket launcher this time. 10 people at a nearby Starbucks, OR, 30 teenage gangbangers in a bad neighborhood, OR, 100 convicts being transported aboard a prison bus. You will not be caught. What do you do?
You're given $100K, but you have to donate it to a charity. Where would you donate it to?
A couple is having some relationship problems. One person posts a vague post to a public community about how good of a person they are and when questioned as to what they are talking about, gets combative. What would you think of the whole thing?

Right now he uses fusion blades and soap, which I'm sure isn't helping. What's the best (drug store available, plz) shaving stuff for men?
While we're on the topic, what kind of body soap and shampoo do you use? I'm in the market for a new natural shampoo. I currently wash with dr. bronner's castille lavender soap, but I'm a little wary of putting that on my fried hair.
Were you mad when you found out that it was really fiction?

4. Anyone in TQC who reminds you of anyone else?
There's about 110 people coming to our wedding, wedding party excluded from that number, and we're having assigned seating during dinner.
However, instead of making people wander for ten minutes to find their place card, how do you better organize it? Numbering tables? I have not been to a wedding with a seating chart since my sister's wedding, but I was a bridesmaid and thusly have no clue.
Also for people who don't give a shit about weddings:
Does anyone else automatically go to their userpic drop box instead of the post to drop box?
Cause I do it EVERY TIME I post to a community
We have to do an "interactive activity" with the class, like a game or something fun. Do you have any ideas??
We're giving 1/4 of the class (representative of how many college kids nationwide have an STD) an index card with an STD written on it. The other 3/4 will have a blank card. Then we will discuss the symptoms/treatment of each STD while the people who are "infected" with it stand up. But we want to do a MORE interactive activity as well.
2. I got a hamster last Thursday and she's still being a little bitch. Will she ever be friendly? My last hamster was sweet from day 1.
3. Post your favorite picture of YOU.

I want to save all the photos from my new account. I'd load them from my camera, but its batteries are dead. And I have no idea where the charger is. I suck.
What's a good foot massager?
Who got hurt today at work? (I cut my finger, owwie)
Also. I'm about to format my computer- Alienware gave me this cd called "microsoft windos xp home edition system recovery CD-ROM" That means I can format using this cd right??
Now, here is my problem. My mother snoops an awful lot. I accidentally left my computer on one day (I am still kicking myself in the ass for that) and my mother snooped through it. She knows my 'real' LiveJournal username, and actually got mad at me because it was friends only. My boyfriend and I are trying to move in together, but New Jersey has horrendously high rent, and we both made some financial mistakes in the past, and we are waiting for those to clear up before we rush into anything. Here's the thing, though; my mother insists that as long as I am living in her house, she has every right to know every intricate detail about me, and I disagree. I work two jobs, I contribute to the bills, and help keep the house clean. I say that I am entitled to my privacy, as she is entitled to her own.
Am I in the wrong here and should I just suck it up, or is she wrong? It is so frustrating that I have to safeguard nearly every aspect of my life, because she reads into things and comes up with insane assumptions and jumps into conclusions, so that is no help, as well.
I have the following:
lemon & pepper seasoning
red pepper flakes
rice vinegar (I don't know if that would be a big help...)
+ salt & pepper
What combo would go best with chicken breasts, which I plan to cook first in a skillet in olive oil, then bake to cook through? Sides will be mashed potatoes & corn.
Do you have any suggestions for how I can keep track of pictures, links to sites, news stories, etc. in one convenient place?
I was thinking of starting a journal specifically for this purpose or something like that, but I thought I'd ask in here to see if anyone else had any more creative/efficient ideas.
It's a Long Distance Relationship and his birthday is in about a week.

2. I've noticed these tiny black bugs in my office room.. around the wires connected to my computer and such. they aren't fleas, and I don't think they're ants. but they are geting on my last nerve. what are they & how can I get rid of them?
What song is Michael Cera singing, even if it's just one line? Thanks in advance!

I still need a name for my Beta!

I used to read 2-3 books a week. And then I just stopped. I want to try to pick that habit up again by starting out reading at least 2-3 books a month, then maybe more. Last night I bought "No One Belongs Here More Than You" by Miranda July and I can't but it down. Next I'd like to read Charlie Chaplin's autobiography. I'll read just about anything, though I'm not too interested in sci-fi/fantasy or war books.
My doctor just switched me from Lexapro to Effexor. I've been taking it for 4 days and have had NO appetite whatsoever. On the patient pamphlet it says loss of appetite is a side effect but my stomach doesn't even growl anymore. I'm hoping this is just a short term side effect because I can't just NOT eat.
(I'm referring to typos, not words you misspell)
Is this safe to eat? I'll be putting the slices in vinegar.
Has anyone ever gotten the putty to work?

2. My parents are gone for a week, and I don't start my big girl job/work til Monday, so I've got like 5 days of freedom left, what should I do? There's already some partying planned.
3. Should I cook for myself tonight or get take out from the awesome Mexican place in town? I have to pick the food up if I get take out, they don't deliver.
4. How is your week so far?
Edit: You've convinced me, TQC. Takeout it is!
my best is 70.456m
2. Where would I buy some cheap NFL tickets for a game a few months from now?

I wish they would bring back the 49 million dollar man.

What's your general opinion of people in TQC? (No, this isn't another one of those "who do you hate/like in TQC," or "What do you like/hate about TQC", just general opinion of members).
Do you think TQC is different from other groups? Why?
edit: Should I get a pumpkin?
edit number dos: Something I noticed...You know how there is that one comment in a lot of posts that gets a zillion responses? Usually a comment that's insulting or ignorant or something most people don't agree with, etc. And a million people reply to that comment. While I've been guilty of being one of those replying commentors, why is it that so many of us have the urge to reply to that one person, instead of just letting the first comments get their point across? What is it about that comment that makes us all want to gang up?
What do you do to calm down, besides masturbation?
If so, what company do you use?
Is it expensive?
In the last few days, there have been several incidents of arson, not far from where I live. I think it is time that I sucked it up and bought coverage.
I'm not so worried about replacing furniture. Most of it was free. Clothes and toys are easily replaceable. I do, however, worry about my extensive video game and dvd collection as well as all of my electronics.
Who's more attractive, Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie? I'd hit them both but I'd have stuck with Jennifer, though the desire to have Angelina's lips wrapped around the shaft has got to be nearly unbearable in most men.

What are some names I can call my boy?
He's getting braces tomorrow and all I have is "Brace face", "metal mouth" and "train tracks". I feel like there are so many more that I am missing.
ETA:He's totally fine with it, he brought it up himself. So theres no worry about hurting his feelings, and I obviously won't call him name all the time.
My mom: Clean any and all glass without a streak or a speck of dust. And then be able to spot a single speck on any glass in my condo, deciding to clean everything for me since I'm not quite up to standards.
If so, do you think about this when you post pictures to pic posts?
Any under callouses?
I have one on the ball of my foot (there are more, but this is the only troublesome one) underneath the callous. I have to walk all over campus tomorrow and there is a chance I'll spend 2:30 pm until maybe 11 pm either standing or walking.
How can I make that not suck so bad?
I tend to be turned off of people who describe themselves with the bands they like (and only the bands they like), or if I get the feeling someone's an "elitist."

Which brand/model is it?
Is "Across the Universe" good? I want to see it, but don't want to waste the money if it's bad :-\

Only within the past year have I started eating spicy things. Like things with jalapenos. And Korean food. I'm fricken addicted. The nice folks at the Korean restaurant even gave me a buy 10 meals get one free card.
Speaking of Korean food, does anyone know what that spicy, sweet dark red sauce is called? It seems to be a condiment for everything, and is either similar or the same as the sauce that goes on the cylindrical rice cakes. It's not Vietnamese rooster sauce though.
Why is Korean food so effin' delicious?
Are there any specific ones you ladies or leg-shaving gents would recommend?
Mine is at least 10 years old so i don't know what's out there in shaving technology anymore. I don't use it very often, just in hair emergency situations.
To be more specific:
We're staying at Sunset Blvd at West Hollywood. We're thinking about walking down the Sunset Strip and walking down Hollywood's Walk of Fame, not sure what else.
We're into museums, unique places to visit, local cuisine/culture, and outdoorsy/scenic places. We prefer cheap/free things to do. We're not really into the "movie star" thing (although we're going to the walk of fame just because it's nearby) and not into amusement parks.
Also, we won't have a car, so how is the public transit there to go to places?
2. When did you last do laundry?
3. Why is Kyan (from Queer Eye) so frickin' beautiful? Is this God's idea of fun? Haha, look what you can't have!
Edit: 4. When you find bits of paper in the dryer after doing laundry, do you try and figure out what it was in case it was something important or just think, "Eh, it's ruined anyway," and just chuck it?
Edited to add the question mark. Too much stress + too much caffeine = stoopid me.

In one of my classes today there was a discussion about lighting farts on fire. We were trying to compare whether it was just a guy thing, or whether it was an everyone thing. Since I go to an all girls school, we couldn't really get adequate representation. So, I'm posting a poll.
It's divided by guys/girls. (If you are trans-gendered answer how you identify.)
For GUYS: Have you ever lit/tried to light a fart on fire?
For GIRLS: Have you ever lit/tried to light a fart on fire?
Why did you do it?
2. You know how some restaurants serve blackened catfish? WHAT spices/herbs/etc do they use? [I bought this stuff in the spice aisle called 'blackening seasoning' but it tastes like ass (actually like a clove cigarette) and is not spicy at all. WTF?]
3. Do you think that substitute teaching for elementary and junior high schools would be a horrible job?
Does anyone know where I can find cheaper compatible cartridges that print at approximately the same quality?
