what is your secret cure for a terrible headache, minus pain relievers of any sort?
if you won a shitload of money and planned to give a big chunk to charity, to which cause(s) would you like to donate?
my husband told me that when i first meet people, i always try to hide this big old scar on my forearm...even if i already have long sleeves on. i never knew that.
diabetes research and breast cancer research.
did you watch the psychic chalenge on lifetime tonight?
if so, what are your thoughts?
|I can name 53 Asian countries in 2m 39s|
|Click here to Play|
By the way, did you know that the Splash Mountain ride at Disneyland gets you a whole hell of a lot wetter than the Splash Mountain ride at Disney World?
What about butter?
(I did for the first time tonight, and enjoyed the whipped cream in chocolate malt ovaltine. The butter is now in my fridge.)
Have you ever wanted to do something so badly that you obsessed about it?
Have you ever pushed people away because of a residual pile of anger that built up?
How did you free yourself of said anger?
What's something you've always wanted to be asked?
I just got cheesy potatoes and they are delicious.
you must all spend 3/4 of the day on the shitter
Is it because orange juice is magic?
Edit: Man, I just get worse and worse at phrasing questions. I mean songs that can be described as emo follow some conventions. For example, the speaker is a sensitive young man, usually white, usually misunderstood, usually cheated on by his girlfriend, etc. Feel free to dispute these points; I'm no expert. But the genre takes a certain worldview for granted; what do you think of that worldview, and what it tells girls and boys?
If you've graduated from college where do you hang/keep your diploma for your degree?
Last night I was looking through my jewelry box and made a surprising discovery. I still have my ex-husband's high school class ring. If it matters, here's a bit of background. We started dating in high school, got married a couple of years after high school, and have been divorced for almost 4 years. He was a complete asshole to me, and I haven't spoken to him since our divorce hearing. What should I do with it? I can probably find his address and mail it to him, or I can get rid of it in some creative way. So tell me, WWTQCD?
1. What was the lowest point in your life?
2. How long did it last?
3. Do you wish Tyra was your bff?
I do :(
Do you carry around a large purse or a small one?
Would you wear this?
What about this?
I have a black dress for homecoming. It's pretty plain, with a little bit of lace and a pleated skirt. I'm probably going to go with a pearl necklace/earrings. Any other suggestions?
38. Is it cold where you are this morning? Where are you? I'm in Louisiana and it's like, 49 right now. That's brr for me.
12. Yo, HP fans: Which of these d'you think is better for a Tonks costume for halloween? this one or this one? And do you have any better ideas? I've got until the 29th to get it.
59. Have you ever participated in a Halloween function where you dressed up and handed out candy to kids? I'm doing Zoo Boo this year and I am so psyched, all the little kids are so adorable.
I know there's V-neck, scoop-neck, etc... I'm looking for the name of the neckline I have on this shirt here... It pretty much goes straight across your neck or just below. You know, the hole where your head goes in...lol...when it sits on your chest, the neckline goes straight across.
Crap...I can't describe it..
Last year, two months before he was supposed to marry his fiance of five years she died extremely suddenly from a blod clot that went to her heart.
The last few months he has been seeing an amazing woman and really developing a great friendship/relationship.
Now this relationship has fallen through... She wanted it to end, not him.
Obviously he is feeling like he will never find love or happiness, and is quite angry with God.
So, TQC, what do I say to him? What would be the best thing to do?
2. How long have you been married?
3. If you don't keep in touch with everyone, why not?
4. Do you have wedding pictures out anywhere for other people to see?
5. If you could do your wedding over again, would you change anything?
2. When was the last time you lost your temper because of being impatient?
3. Is it too much to ask that grown adults in the workplace understand how to forward an email to a colleague or minimize a window?
( Collapse )
I have 29. Some of those will be trashed during my next move though.
He was saying how if he was Al Gore he wouldn't have accepted the Nobel Peace Prize because Yasser Arafat was awarded one, and he wouldn't want to win an award that a terrorist had.
1. Would you accept the Peace Prize even though a terrorist won it too?
2. Do you think Hannity is full of crap and would have accepted the award regardless? I think he's just throwing a bitch fit because it was Gore.
EDIT: I just got my desk and a bunch of New Yorker's from my aunt and uncle who kicked me out two months ago. They tore off the address label from the mags. Why do you think this is?
I'm sure she gave a witness statement to the police. So the question is, if I can figure out who this wonderful woman was, would it be too weird to send her a "thank you" card?
This was a brand new car (I picked it up on 6/19) -- have you ever totaled such a new car?
Do you have any tricks for keeping the large abrasion on my neck (from the seatbelt) from getting super crusty? I'm not sure how to stick bandages on it.
Is it weird that the police didn't talk to me? I never even saw the car that hit me and I couldn't look at the scene because they didn't want me to move my neck.
I was on my way to work to turn in my two-weeks notice -- should I take this as a sign?
Any other advice?
Want to see pictures? The Car and Me
EDIT: male enhancement drugs? Y? N? BS? Should I have saved my money?
Also, today I am going to make apple crisp. Should I get vanilla ice cream?
I would invent something that would keep my nose warm because it always get super cold when I fall asleep. That or a time portal so I could hop in and visit my boyfriend whenever I wanted.
I write more in my paper journal, maybe once or twice a week. I am not completing a moleskine.
2. I'm scared what will happen when I graduate college. I finally met my best friend which connects with me in so many awys but she lives five hours away from where I will be after college. I know I will have to keep contact but I'm going to miss her a lot. My question is, for those of you who had to go through the same thing, what did you do? Did you find a place to live together, did you go on a roadtrip before you left college, what?
3. Best cigarettes to buy? Why?
as for moi: at the moment, on tcq. :p
If you didn't (or don't) use an alarm, what time would you naturally wake up every morning?
If a child throws tantrums every night because they don't want to go to sleep, do you think it's bad parenting to just let them cry themselves to sleep occasionally?
Everyone I have asked says it's horrible parenting. I don't have children, but it's a question I've thought of.
If you're single, how often did you fight with your previous SO?
Conversely, which day of the week do you hate the most?
When I Google "perfume", I'm too overwhelmed with the responses.
A panini with chicken, mozzarella, and tomatoes. Oh, I want one. :(
2. When you make sandwiches for yourself, do you cut them in half, in fourths, or just eat the whole thing?
If it's a gooey sandwich I'll cut it in half, but turkey and cheese or something like that? Give me the whole thing.
3. Do you wash your jeans every time you wear them, or do you wear them several times before washing? (assuming there are no mysterious stains)
I'm a big proponent of "wear them several times if they're not dirty or smelly" - I have to go fishing for quarters and it also takes about two hours to do a load.
4. What's the last nice thing someone did for you without expecting anything in return?
Some of the local church kids are doing community service (not required, just because) - they knocked on my door and offered to take out my trash and clean my sink. They wouldn't accept anything, not even some of the crackers I happened to be eating at the time. I thought that was pretty cool, especially since it's cold and taking out the trash here is a hassle.
5. What is the one thing you're dreading doing today?
Going to the library and writing my paper. I have NO energy. :(
i might be a lady bug, where could i get a black tutu/ ladybugish wings?
what are you being this halloween?
worst costume you've ever seen?
any explanations as to why this would happen? there was no visible smoke and the smoke detector has fresh batteries.
would you subject your pet, child, or elderly relative to it if they couldn't understand why you would allow them to be put in such pain?
what if the cure resulted in a total mental/personality change and the person who was cured of cancer was nothing like the person s/he was before being subjected to the cure?
Are you as hot to buy the Transformers movie this week as my husband is?
i hate when people whine, but i whine a LOT myself.
What should I take pictures of?
I'll post em here, and on my journal
If it does keep my changes stored would I then just go back to the style I had selected in the first place?
I like the way Right Guard smells on dudes. ^_^
this is my first question ever not related to modeling.
For the first time in over a year & a half, I suddenly have a crush on someone.
how do I ask someone out? How do I make them just friends?
how do I get more than just a scoop of fro-yo in my order, if you know what I mean?
P.S. What should I wear to the casting call in a few hours? It's freeeeeezing! It's for a hair show, to show off the latest, hot styles from the latest products from the top hair distributors as showcased by top stylists. I don't know what to wear but *have* to win this gig!
2) Have you ever lied to someone online about your identity and actually gotten to know them? If so, what happened with the situation?
3) I'm bored. Any fun online games you recommend?
4) I caught a guy in the library playing one of those lame "sleep with this hot anime girl" sim games. He kept losing so I ended up shoving him out of the way and winning it for him...Then before he got to have sex with her I turned it off. On a scale of 1 to 1000, what does this rate as far as wickedness goes?
5) Is anything bothering you? Do you wish to bitch about it?
*I'm not actually 45. I don't think I'm a gay man either (but you never know).
I'm taking one Monday morning and would like to review a bit.
...This question was asked recently as a second question in another post but I lj-seeked and searched the tqc archives to no avail! boo.
Have you used it? Was it worth the cost? Would you have rather gone with traditional braces or are you happy with your decision?
I might have to go on it and I'm a bit frightened of the side
edit: side EFFECTS not AFFECTS. I can't believe I did that. Grosssss.
I love fish but I'm never going to eat it again because of this.
Am I the only one who feels bad when they play Kittenwar when they have to pick between two really cute kittens and feel like you're insulting the other one?
I don't eat a lot of animal products, but I do like chicken and fish.
I want to challenge myself to go vegan. I know it is a huge sacrifice, but I just want to make my body strong and healthy. I realize through this book that I can get my protein from other sources besides meat.
Has anyone here gone vegan/vegetarian and suceeded (having a prior liking to meat/poultry)...has anyone gone vegan/vegetarian and had a very difficult time?
Thanks so much you guys!
If you've ever taken an i.q. test what was your i.q.?
Do you play the Sims?
What's your favorite Youtube video? (link please)
Edit: Should I buy the Lord of the Rings box set?
Does anyone else do this? Care to tell stories?
a la the Virgin Mary
It's not immaculate conception. That has nothing to do with it.
Can you name any of the four provinces and thirty-two counties in Ireland?
I can only them all about half the time, which is pretty embarrassing.
Men, when did you start shaving your face?
Either, when did you stop? why?
Have you ever run into someone you thought you'd never see again?
I just ran into someone from my sophomore physics class at the grocery store off my college campus. What's even weirder is he doesn't go to my college- he just happened to have bought a house about 20 blocks away.
When you keep putting off studying, what makes you/motivates you to just start?
What are you gonna do today?
2. There's a commenter on a blog I read who always works in the fact that she's living abroad, despite it never being relevant. Would that bother you?
3. What does the word "emo" mean to you? What are some examples of emo bands? (My question yesterday was apparently really poorly phrased.)
about a half hours ago the area around my right wrist started feeling like it was burning.
i've compared it to my other arm. there's no discoloration or any bumps or anything.
and it just feels like i got a really bad sunburn..right there.
what's wrong with me?
am i gonna die?
what do you do for a living?
Has this happened to anyone else?
Did I ruin the battery by charging it in a UK outlet?
Is there any way for me to fix this myself?
Failing that, does anyone know a good camera repair place in/near Cambridge? (England, not Massachusetts).
Or am I going to have to buy a new camera?
On an unrelated note, what's the one thing that annoys you most about your school? (Or used to annoy you, if you're not currently a student).
(I hate that our library is closed on Sundays. I still can't believe it.)
I just signed up today (I know, I'm behind the times) HALP!?
What do you think is the scariest movie centered around a hotel/motel?
Where would you rather stay: Hotel, Motel, or the Holiday Inn?
Right now, are you:
A. completely shaven
B. partially shaven/landing strip/whatever you want to call it
C. hairy and all natural
How many of the Australian capitals do you know?
when was the last time you cleaned something?
last movie you watched?
show me a picture of you and your SO?
2. Have you been diagnosed with a personality disorder? What about someone you know? Which one?
3. Do you use fabric softener or dryer sheets?
4. Who is someone you find sexy while most people wouldn't agree?
5. What's the farthest you've travelled on your own?
2. I'm going to buy a stove/oven and I have the opportunity to choose between gas or electric or... whatever else there is. Which do you prefer? Why?
3. Try to stay with me here: My SO swears there are these delicious fruits that grow in Florida. He says they are like grapes, but are champagne-colored, bigger (ping-pong ball sized), and more firm. He's never seen the name written but, pronounced phonetically, it's SKUL-puh-non. What the shit is he talking about? (ETA: Aha! Scuppernong! I wasn't even close!)
Statues/figurines/paintings of fairies (especially James Browne's fairy paintings) and lady bugs
First Editions of various fairy books (esp. Louisa May Alcott's Flower Fables);
Antique classical music scores
All Things Parrots! (Espeically cockatoos!)
On another note, does it seem like things happen all at once to you? Like all good things happening, or all bad things happening.
since my stupid compooter is in the shop to get a new hard drive, i can't update my ipod with the podcasts i listen to. and i don't want to sit on the computer and listen to them.
here's my question: is there any cd-rw out there that is compatible with cd players? (so i don't have to burn a million cd-r's that i will never listen to again.)
just wondering. probably a shot in the dark.
edit: holy hell, I tried one of the cd-rw's i had from years ago and it worked!!
From what I've seen, the only reason to go is to:
A: Get naked in public
B: Do a ton of drugs.
Is there an actual spiritual reason behind it?
What book(s) are you obsessed with?
What the heck does "No Diggity" MEAN??
Are you vindictive?
If yes, pls give examples.
Edit: Both references were WAY before last week! That means that whoever did it did it because it was already an idea. :(
Edit #2: (Tangent from this post:
2. I was going on about (spoilerish things) that happened on Ugly Betty, particularly in regards to Justin, and my friend said, "Why does it matter that much? There are other..."
Other friend, not trying to be funny: "...little boys?" Hilarity ensued, and I have to be sure to mock said friend for that comment in the future. What is an entertaining conversation you heard or were a part of recently?
it has to be something that you love SOOOOO MUCH that others can't understand.
for me, it's british comedies that are unpopular in the US: like garth merenghi's darkplace, man to man with dean learner, the mighty boosh, etc. it's so hard to love something so intensely and have noone around you have any idea what you're talking about.
but i bring the geekery, that's what i'm about.
Which girl name(s) do you like best?
I'm pregnant, bored, and will find out the sex on the 30th. We have a boy name picked out, and my husband is not interested in even thinking of girl names until we know what it is. I'm sure it's a boy, but just in case!
I got a new laptop today. yay.
How much do you think I could get for mine, used? It is two years old, it's a Dell 700m. I spent a lot of money on it for it to be tiny and have a lot of upgrades, extended life battery, etc. It has Office home and Photoshop on it. Problem is, I dont think a lot of people think the whole four-pound-12" laptop thing is as convenient as I do. It's tiny.
Where would you sell it, i fyou wanted the most money for it? I know used laptops aren't worth much though.
Is there a way to transfer my photoshop to my new Dell? Or can you not do that? The actual disk for it is in New York with my cousin and I need photoshop on my new computer like NOW (I'm a professional photographer).
Were you named after someone/is there a special reason you were given the name you were given?
If you could, would you change your name? To what?
Do you go by a name other than your first? (This could be a shortened version of your first name, your middle name, etc.)
My name's Katherine.
I was named after my Great Grandma.
I wouldn't change my name.
I don't go by anything other than Katherine.
on teh internets?
What is a comment someone has recently made about you that you never considered, but find amusing (or true)?
1. If you could give any piece of advice to me about the college application process, what would it be?
2. What do you think is the most important element of a good college application?
3. What's important to consider while looking for a college? What's overrated?
Are you a big fan of scarves?
Which is worse:
shorts with tights
or SOCKS OVER TIGHTS?
2- Have you ever egged someone's house for giving shoddy (or no) candy at Halloween?
3- Why won't my husband go clean the pans, so I can make dinner? I thought this was a fair compromise, instead he's playing Gears of War. D:
4- What's the latest drama to happen in your life? Your real life, not the online one.
I decided I wanted to try Everquest, so I went and downloaded the free 'Trilogy' thing with the first two expansions. I got it downloaded, installed, downloaded the patch, and... the server select screen is empty. It just says 'Server' and 'Status' at the top, all the buttons and such are there, but no servers load. I've tried leaving it for a while, but still nothing.
So far I've restarted, looked on google (which mostly found people having trouble with non-official servers and wasn't much help), reinstalled, made sure Everquest was allowed through my firewall, restarted again... anyone have an idea how to fix it?
and feel utterly alone?
2. I'm in a 'long-distance' college relationship. (2 hours away from each other.)
Why is my SO a butt nugget who doesn't realize there needs to be communication to keep this relationship going?
3a. Did you drink when you were in high school? College?
3b. Why/why not? (No "but everyone was doing it!" comments!)
4. What pissed you off today that you need to vent about?
5. What did you do this weekend?
6. Final words of wisdom?
F.Y.I, the only time I ever attempt to get a hold of her on said phone is during emergencies or attempt to inform her of changed plans, late hours at work, ECT. I'm not a big cell phone talker either.
Why do you collect what you do?
What say you?
and how do you say Happy Halloween en francais? :)
Is my baby boy a HOMO?
Please, someone tell me that my sleep deprived mind missed the sign that said "Yo this is a joke" or something, cause if this site is real, there's be some fucked up people.
Here's me: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v456/plaidskoogrl/DSC00110.jpg
If not any cool ideas of who or what I should be for Halloween?
My first name is Kathryn. I like it, but I don't think I could ever get used to being called that by anyone other than teachers and doctors.
I currently go by Katie. While I like the way it sounds, I don't care for the spelling. I don't like the way it looks when written/typed - it makes me feel like a little kid for some reason. Plus there is the fact that I have neither an I nor an E in my name. I tried to switch to Katy once, but it lasted like a week because I couldn't get the hang of it.
Some of my friends refer to me by my initials, KD. But again, I don't like the way that looks.
There are already women in my family who are called Kats, Kate, and Kit.
My little sister's name is Erin so Ryn is out of the question, plus I think that looks weird, plus I don't think I could handle being called something that didn't start with a K, since I've gone 21 years as Katie.
So. What should I be called??
Its a country song, I believe it was made after 2001. It has a music video showing a bunch of men coming back from overseas (i suppose war) and their families (kids) are there to great them and its going along about something like how men were little once too, or little boys grow up to be men or something like that. I don't even recall what the singer looks like.
Just the music video of a bunch of returning soldiers getting greeted by their kids, and i'm sure there was much more to the video but it seems that's all my brain recalls tonight.
So, does anyone know wtf i'm talking about? I would sure love to find out the name of the song.
What do you like about it?
What do you hate?
Pix if you'd like :D
I love my blue '05 Nissan Sentra. It's cute and little and gets good gas mileage. It isn't very fast or powerful, but it's good enough for me.
At what point do I just give up? How come I try so hard and get absolutely nothing back? I am completely out of strategies. I just can't do this anymore. Every other girl I know goes from boyfriend to boyfriend seamlessly and I can't even get one guy to be interested in me for anything but pure sex. I don't want to be heartbroken anymore from being rejected over and over and over again. I just want to be content with being single for the rest of my life. How do I come to terms that I will never be in a relationship?
Answers that tell me that if I keep looking I will find someone will be blatantly ignored. I'm not that naive.
Not for children exactly, but the ones that seem to be able to amuse you in your 'later years'.
My favourite personally is Curious George. There's also this show Roller Coaster on the ABC in Australia, the host is a genius.
I need to miss school that day.
Who out there managed to stay with Game 2 of the ALCS until the bitter end? Was that an incredible 11th inning or what? I have no favorite in this series, so I can truly say that no matter who you root for, that's a baseball inning that most
If not, do you have a reason other than being a red sox fan, or rooting against the indians?
