3. What's your sexual orientation? (optional)
Perhaps this is a long shot, but is anyone here on a Board of Directors?
I was blessed to be born into a family of women who, dating several generations back, have always had perfect skin. My grandma is 84 and has no wrinkles. I can only hope I grow old as gracefully as she did. But, despite thinking I escaped most skin issues people have, I still have one - blackheads. I CANNOT rid my nose of them, and my chin has a fair amount. I've tried different scrubs, soaps, etc... but I never see a decrease in the amount of them. Do you have any tips or tricks on getting rid of these annoying things?
Whats going to happen to Britney Spears in the next year?
Ice cream or pudding? You can only choose one!
do you have any tattoos? how many? where? how bad does it hurt? what kind of pain would you liken it to?
i'm considering getting a 4-6 inch color piece on my back as my first. obviously the pain is gonna be different for everyone, but i'd like to kind of know what to expect :)
What happened to the post asking "What do people have against vegans?"
I'm choosing a bank tomorrow--what major bank chain do you think would work best for a student in new york city who will most likely never have more than 600 or 700 dollars in the account at once? If you are or were a member of this bank, what do you like about it and what do you dislike about it?
At home I just use my local credit union, but now that I have a job at school, it would be kind of inconvenient to mail my paychecks back to Michigan.
Also, can you link to or post your favorite black and white photograph (preferably not a personal photograph...I'm looking for wall decorations, that'd be just a little creepy)?
Last, what grocery item do YOU personally consider a staple? Not a general staple like milk or bread or eggs, more unusual things that you specifically always have in stock. For example, last year hummus was a staple of my refrigerator and this year it's become jello.
why the fuck do my roommates come in at 2am and talk as loudly as if it were the middle of the day, thus waking up everyone who's asleep because they have to work in the morning? right now, they're in the bathroom with the kittens, and being loud enough that i can hear them out in the living room. there's someone sleeping just one wall away, who has work at like 8am. they're probably waking her up. what the fuck is wrong with them?
also: what can i do to make them stfu once in a while? this is an ongoing problem.
eta: they are not drunk, i tried talking to them, and they pretty much said, "too bad, the other roommates wake me up at 7am". and now they're going to watch a movie, probably far too loudly. i sleep in the living room, and i need to go to bed, like, soon. >: |
Inspired by previous post:
Why the hell can't I get a job?
Why don't you have a job right now?
If you do have a job, do you enjoy working there? Why?
DOESN'T ICE CREAM SOUND DELICIOUS RIGHT NOW?
Do you really want to hurt me? Do you really want to make me cry? Even if you told the truth is it still a lie?
It is not bed time right now, is it?

Questions for the guys.
1. In public restrooms and you have to go #1, do you use the urinals or a stall? (assuming there is a urinal available)
2. If you do use the stalls instead of urinals, would your choice change if someday you had explosive diarrhea, rushed into a public restroom to find all the urinals available but all the stalls filled with guys just taking a whizz?
3. If you do use the stalls, do you feel the need to drench the seat with pee?
1. have you ever met someone with narcolepsy?
this guy told me yesterday that he kinda has that, and my first reaction was "omg that's so cool!" lol.. *sigh* i know it's not cool... its just that i never met anyone with narcolepsy, and it'd be interesting in a science project kind of way...
I realize the internet isn't the best place to go looking for medical advice... but while I wait to see a doctor, I thought I'd get some opinions.
So I've been sick for about 3 days. It started very, very suddenly. My main symptom has been fever (chills/sweating) with a intense body aches/skin sensitivy and lot of disorientation and dizziness. I live alone so admittedly I probably wasn't taking THE best care of myself. But approximately 12 hours ago I started having a vision disturbance that is still here, even after a full night's sleep. It looks like that purple orb you see after someone takes a picture of you, but it's in a "starburst" shape and HAS NOT GONE AWAY FOR 12 HOURS. It is particularly noticable when in sunny/bright light, or looking at my cell phone/computer screen.
This weird vision thing is a symptom I've never heard of so I was wondering if anyone else has experience with it.
My fiance is big into Chinese cures. He has made this stuff for flu remedy, which actually works, btw, but every single man who has tried it cannot stand the smell/taste, while every single woman who was tried it will take it without complaint and will even remark on its tastiness or desire to dress a salad with it.
Let me tell you what's in it. Everything I mention, btw, is present in the elixer in significant quantities except the honey:
Now for the questions:
Are you male or female?
Does this combination sound appealing or disgusting to you?
Is there something taste-wise in women that is either dulled to these tastes or like, turned on to them? Because a quick stroll down Google Lane shows that women should technically show more sensitivity due to more taste buds.
1- Can you smell snow/rain?
2- Can you hear a muted tv?
3- Can you see dead people?
4- Can you taste the difference between butter, and "I can't believe it's not butter"?
5- How ya feelin' today, dear TQC member?
Do you moderate any communities?
If so, which ones?
Are they ~*popular*~? How many members do they have?
How did you go about promoting this community?
Also, what type of shoes are you wearing today?
1) Do graphic health warnings on cigarette packs really work?
2) Would/Do you agree to_a/with_the nationwide ban on smoking in your country?
What kind of tea should I get from Dunkin Donuts? I am very sick and my throat feels ripped to shreds.
Lets pretend there is an election for president of TQC. So what are your campaign promises?
Have you ever failed a job interview?
Why do you think that was?

1. Do you think over the counter cold and flu medications actually work?
2. What is your least favorite Simpsons episode?
3. How do you feel about buffets?

Which is better:
Low self esteem or too much ego?

What should I do this weekend? We just got back from vacation and aren't really thinking.
What are YOU doing this weekend?
Should I go to the Family Planning Association's talk about protection and contraception at level one or should I stay here in the library and study for my finals?
What are you doing right now?
1] Is this a question.
2 ] Is it illegal to pickle a foetus?
I was discussing shots with my dad, and he mentioned that when he was a kid, they used to give him shots in the butt. Now he only gets shots in the upper arm. I have never gotten shots in the butt, but I have had plenty in the arm. If you have had shots in the butt, how long ago, and how old were you? And does anyone know why this practice has ceased?
What if there was a guy who was lovely, cared about you immensely, thought you were the most beautiful person and was convinced you were the perfect girl. Basically wanted more than anything for you two to be together.
But.. you weren't sure..he's not like the guys you usually go for because he's not an arrogant cock, the truth is he'd treat you better than anyone ever had before.
Something just didn't click like romantically you'd want it to. Though, you think there's a possibility if you gave it a go.. maybe took things slowly & see how it developed..
If it didn't work out though the guy would really be incredibly hurt & it would probably be too awkward to carry on the friendship as you have so far, spending a lot of time together. You don't want to ruin anything, however he keeps on putting himself on the line to get you to take the chance.
Would you risk for the slight possibility of something better?
Ever been in a situation like this before?
What is your favorite word? Why?
What is your favorite name for a boy? For a girl? Why?

How do you make hot chocolate/cocoa?
What are some things that make you excited and want to squeeeeeeeee and jump around for no reason except you're just your goofy self?
I get excited by rain when I can smell a storm coming, trips, crotchrockets, the potential of off roading (which i've never done), state parks, snow, making new friends (except in situations where I dont know anyone then i'm shy), getting projects done, road tripping, orlando bloom, my bestfriends all updating LJ, and rootbeer!
What is your least favorite word?
So here's the backstory: I met my best friend, M, through my boyfriend, C - she was going out with his brother, T, at the time. We're now both split up with our boyfriends.
She just told me that while she was with T, she slept with his OTHER brother, A (i.e. not the one I went out with, a different one - there were 4 of them all together), one drunken-fuelled lusty blur of a night. A and I were and still are very good friends.
Who would you think less of, M or A?
i just switched back to using microsoft office outlook 2003 from incredimail and i'm having issues. my school email address [email@example.com] works fine, but it doesn't always get my emails from my hotmail account [firstname.lastname@example.org]. what the hell is the problem?

how many times a day do you pee?
i only pee once and i feel like everyone goes more than me. am i not drinking enough liquids? are my kidneys failing?

Can you recommend 3 communities you like and why you think someone else might enjoy them?
Tonight will be the fourth or fifth date out with a guy that I'd been good friends with for half a year before we started dating last month. The most intimate we've been would be a kiss on his cheek from me when he found me a much needed plastic bag a few weeks ago.
1: Should we make-out tonight?
a) If yes, should he make the first more or should I?
2: We're going bowling, but grabing a bite to eat first. Where should we go to eat?
And totally unrealted:
3: Do babies dressed in little animal costumes weird you out?
What was the last really crappy thing that happened to you?
This morning my dog peed on my backpack. It seeped through and got all over my notebooks and papers and ifdlhgkj,dfxghjidklfgj I want to kill him.
I live with my cousins and I pay my own rent/utilities and buy my own food, etc. I've posted before about them eating my food and messing with my pets, and I had a nice firm talk with them about it last time. This afternoon I came home to them making dinner with chicken that I bought, and since I go to work in 15 minutes, I don't get to partake. I am really pissed, so I just wrote my name on all of my other purchases.
Bitchy move? y/n? Have you dealt with this sort of thing before? Repeatedly? How do you not lose your cool?
Have you ever been dumped in a funny (not at the time or at least not to you) way? Do you know any funny stories about others getting dumped?
*This month in Glamour magazine they have an article of confessions of people that were dumped. This poor girl dated a guy and then he dumped her but they lived in the same neighborhood so whenever she would see him on the street he would literally hide in the bushes or behind other large objects. Once he even ducked behind a garbage can. I think it's terrible but I couldn't help but lol.
Any ideas for a ~*bachelorette party*~ in which the bridal party is ranging in personalities from hard core party chicks to modest mormon girls?
Where to go, what to do... anything???
ETA: Would it be a better idea to just combine the bridal shower and bachelorette party instead of doing one of each?
I'm so clueless to all this weddingy stuff!
Did you dorm your freshman year of college? Was it dramalicious and high school-esque? Does it get better?
what do you do to help yourself when you're feeling completely hopeless?
1. Are you married?
2. Married or not, what are your views on marriage? I mean, when you think of the word "marriage", does it make you swoon or cringe? How do you picture married life and why? Do you believe that marriage inevitably (or almost certainly, at least) leads to a slow emotional decline, mutual resentment, and stagnation?
3. I'm really, really, really bored today, I've done all my work and I've nothing to do. Anyone want to start an epic internet fight with me? Come on, put up yer dukes! S_F or bust!
4. This is my last post here today, I promise.
Could you date an abortionist? Say you never knew exactly what kind of doctor your new SO was until like 10 dates in, where you discovered, either on your own or through them complaining of work, that this person's specialty is terminating unwanted pregnancies.
Would you keep dating them after that? They do make good money
1. Why is "god" sometimes spelled "g-d"?

1) Have you ever had appendicitis?
2) If so, could you please describe what happened from the time you first felt the symptoms until you had the surgery?
I suck at math, so if someone could figure this out for me, that would be SWEET.
My grade is made up of 60% paper, 20% midterm, and 20% final. If I get an A on my paper and an A on my midterm, what is the lowest grade I can get on my final and still secure an A for the class? The scale is 93% = A- , 92% = B+.
Today I just feel like laying in bed forever and crying.

Whats with not knowing about the pumpkin icons? I mean for reals, yo.

My toilet won't flush. Why doesn't the toilet want my wormy cheerios?
Any fun clogged toilet stories?
Any fun surprises in your food stories, for that matter?
What is the last violent movie you watched?
What are you doing tonight?

2. If so, are they sensitive to certain types of metal?
3. If so, what earrings can you wear/can't you wear?

What are some your favorite history-related movies? I'm talking about Elizabeth with Cate Blanchett, etc.
Oh dearest TQC,
If you were going on a loooong road trip, what book would you like to listen to?
I need something that'll keep me entertained and awake. I'm a devout fan of Christopher Moore and Michael Crichton and Katie MacAlister and... things like that.
EDIT!!! NO Stephen King or horror. Please. I'm going to be staying in a cabin all by my lonesome and I don't want to spend the night all freaked out, you know?
A good amount of vegetable oil was spilled onto one of our carpets and leaked onto the unfinished wood underneath. We got rid of the excess oil but can't find a way to clean up the oil that seeped into the wood or the carpet. Any tips?
Whatcha doing this weekend? Anything exciting?
Today while running errands the boy and I were almost hit by a woman who, despite being on the shoulder and having a red light, thought that she had the right of way to make a turn. She was also on her cell phone. She gave us a very pissy look...
Of course I gave her a nice "WTF?" look, but it occurred to me that it might be more entertaining to do something more obnoxious and memorable in situations like that. Flicking people off and employing rapid hand waving has gotten old. SO. What should I do?
Serious suggestions only. FOR SRS.
What percentage of the time would you say you have your hand down your pants?
Did you know the more I drink, the better my typing gets? :D
What movie should I watch since I just canceled on my friend who wanted to go to the bar?
Also, are you going to watch Legally Blonde: The Musical tomorrow on MTV?
So someone keeps calling me from a restricted number, and when I pick up nobody's there. But they keep calling back. Like, 5 times in 3 minutes.
Alright, who's calling me?
Is it important that your family get along with your SO?
Is it important for you to get along with your SO's family?
what is it about my dog and sleeves?
she goes crazy if you have a new sweater. she'll charge you, jump up on you, grab your wrist and sniff it. if you put your hands in your sleeves and kinda gravitate them towards her she goes nuts. she grabs your hands and does her play growl and play bite and just goes nuts.
what is up with my dog and sleeves?
What is with all the "WHATS WITH THE PUMPKIN ICONS" posts? IT IS OCTOBER, PEOPLE. GET A CLUE. MK THX.
Do you think this will happen for all the other holidays? What's with Santa in all the icons? What's with all the hearts? And the redwhiteandblue?
Also, does anyone happen to have the red-background icon with "STABBITY" all over it in gray/white text? I would SO APPRECIATE anyone who could point me in it's direction. I lost it with the rest of my files and I miss it terribly sometimes. likenow.. Thank you!

My father-in-law is piss drunk, just 3 weeks after his court date that got him back his guns from the LAST time he got drunk, wrestled my SIL, and threatened a police officer with one of them. My MIL isn't here, and I don't want to leave him alone. But I'm very angry. My FH is outside with him, talking to him, I presume.
What can I do, if anything?
Can a recovering alcoholic fall off the train once in awhile and still be okay?
How redneck does that sound?
FH: future husband
Sorry, wasn't really thinking about abbrevs when writing this.

Does anyone know the title and artist of the song that goes "How can I tell you, that I'm always thinkin' of you?"
It's a commercial, but I can't remember what it's for. Maybe iPod?
Edit: Thanks, I was retarded and didn't google before I asked. I apologize.
I'm making a mix CD for my best friend w/ benefits (he is my best friend and we have benefits, he isn't one of many) that lives across the country. I really miss him and want to express that in the CD. I already have Incubus "I Wish You Were Here," "Home," by Michael Buble, and "Umbrella" by Rhianna. What other songs would you guys put to show how much you miss someone?
1. If you owned/ran a business, would you do drug testing on employees? Would you test for (or care about the results for) all drugs or only certain ones?
2. Someone told me that putting metal objects in the freezer causes food poisoning. Or something. Is that right or were they on drugs?
3. Shrimp. Y/N? How should it be prepared?

My iPod appears to have finally died for the last time. I plan to replace it ASAP. Soooo....the question is:
What kind of non-iPod MP3 player should I buy now? Why should I buy the one you recommend?
(Serious/non-serious answers welcome)
What's a good reason to go on living? If a friend of yours asked this what would you say? Sure you could stay alive for others, but what if there were no others to stay alive for in your life? Whats a good reason to continue living?
For the people with iPods: How long did you have yours before the battery bit the dust and you had to either send it away or get a new one? I think mine is in its last stages and I want to know how much longer I have.
