I was looking for something for breakfast this morning, and it happened that I learned that
the only cereal we had was called Corn Flakes.
I find this so fucking funny
So what cereal do you have in your cupboard right now? ha :)
will you tell me about someone from your past that you are no longer in contact with?
you don't have to say their name if you don't want to. be as specific as you'd like to be. whether it be an ex, or a best friend that moved away and you didn't keep in touch, an old co-worker, the bully that picked on you back in Algebra class.. WHOEVER. just tell me the story.

I asked the officer about renewing and he said I should have no issue and would be able to get my new license before the court date (November 14), however, I figured that it wouldn't hurt to see if anyone else has been in this position before. Will I have problems renewing?
(I live in Chicago.)
I'll probably wind up calling the DMV tomorrow anyway, but I'd rather ask here first. You guys aren't nearly as scary as they are :D
She's very picky with vegetables, disliking a lot of textures. Any suggestions on what she could eat? I'm getting a bit frustrated trying to think of things, haha.

i like keanu reeves and hayden christensen. i KNOW they are both really awful actors, and while i do think they are both attractive, i know they are really nothing special.
so why the hell do i like them? any ideas?
i can't figure it out.
are there any people that you have a weird crush-thing for but can't figure out why? will you tell me about it?
1b) What if you happened to be employed as the popcorn girl at the movie theatre you were seeing it at?

I already emailed the library. For anyone who has ever worked in a library, or just anyone who may know, what do you think happened? Did someone misplace them or something? Did the return box decide to eat them? Frustration. I don't want to have to pay for books that I returned already.
ETA: Well, I called. They found the books and cleared me of any charges. Yay!
I think it's completely inappropriate and unprofessional for her husband to use the email addresses that he had access to through his job as contacts for his wife's tutoring business.
So, TQC, should I email her back? Forward the email to the college he works at? What should I say in the email if I respond to her, to let her know that it's not cool to use her husband's work contacts as a spamming list?

dear tqc: who is responsible for this dog's death; the artist who chained the dog up as an art exhibit or all the people that complied with the instruction to not feed the dog?
who is responsible
was the exhibit "art"? if yes, does that make it ok?
eta: do you understand the statement he was trying to make?
According knew the dog died the next day for lack of food. During the inauguration knew that the dog was chased in the afternoon between the houses of aluminum and cardboard for a district of Managua with the name of a saint that Habakkuk could not say that at the time. 5 children of those who helped in the capture of 10 cordobas received bonuses for their cooperation. During the exhibition some people called for the release of the puppy, which he refuses artist. The dog's name was (was) Nativity, and he leaves starvation in the face of all, as if the death of a poor dog was a shameless media show in which nobody does nothing but applaud or look puzzled..
Definitely us what went: pure croquettes.
In the place that the dog was exposed only have a metal cable and a rope. The dog was extremely sick, renqueaba [limping] and did not want to eat anyway, so in a natural environment would have died anyway; But so are all the poor dogs: sooner or later die or die.

**In this case "owned" can mean leased, or someone else owned but you drove every day, or whatever. Just think of it as "had physical possession of for an extended period of time."
If so, where do you live?
If not, do you refer to Canadians or Mexicans as Americans?
Would you ever call yourself/refer to Americans as USAians?
I have to ask these because of all the dramallama in s_f that I'm seriously curious as to what people actually think.
Where's the cheapest place to get an iPod?
EDIT: I know iPods are evil etc etc etc, i've decided to give in after 5 years of resistance.
I'm wondering because I'm not from Vermont and want to know if it's worth it to keep these cans until my next visit or if I should just recycle them here.
FYI, they're Wal-Mart brand soda pop cans.
Thanks. :) That's quite amusing. I want to try it. lol
Do you ever look at a spot alongside the road or something and go "Wow, that's a good place to hide a body?"
What is something you'd like to tell past-self five or ten years ago?
Some of my friends are going to see a shadow cast perform it this weekend. In case you don't know, which you probably do but I didn't so I'll explain it... this means that the movie will be playing on the big screen the entire time, but there will also be live actors who are acting along with the movie at the same time. As well, there will be floorwalkers and the audience is generally expected to participate. My friends say that generally the audience yells certain lines along with the movie, but since I don't know the show I don't know the lines and therefore can just play along.
Anyway, the question - should I go? Would it be better for me to see the movie alone or with friends first (without the live cast)? Will I be completely lost at this event?
I will say up front that I don't mind sexual innuendo or foul language, which from what I can see on the internet is the biggest complaint about this movie - I am not easily offended, so I"m not worried about that. I'm just concerned that I will be lost and overwhelmed without prior knowledge of the movie.
Has anything like this ever happened to you?
He also has a blog. An LJ (which he doesn't update anymore) and a new one on Blogger. He also has SiteMeter on his Blogger, which is one of those tracking things that will give you tons of info about your visitors.
In this letter to the USDA, he did not mention or allude to having a blog.
He checked his Sitemeter the other day, and found that the USDA office in Maryland had been on his new blog, referred from his LJ (where he put up a link to his new one.) There is no identifying information on his LJ.
He checked the Sitemeter again today, and the USDA had been on the new blog again, this one a direct link, and coming from the main USDA office in Washington DC.
My brother is really concerned about this, and has no idea a) how they found his blog or b) what he could have said in his email that would make them LOOK for his blog. Does anybody know what the deal is here? Is this a PATRIOT Act thing that he and I aren't familiar with? Why is the USDA stalking his blog?
ETA:: He put up a post asking about it after the first visit. After THAT one, the second one came from the big office. WTF gives?
I applied for a job I'm 100% qualified for on Tuesday. It's almost noon on Friday, and I've heard nothing. I really want this job. Should I...

C) Move on. After 4 days, if you haven't heard, you probably never will.

I didn't realize this happened until yesterday and I got an overdraft fee ($30).
Technically, who's responsible for the $30 overdraft fee?
Me (for not having a large amount of money in my account) or the bad check writer (for writing a bad check to a poor person)?
Does anyone else think Gap and Old Navy vanity size their pants to the extreme?
I'm just guessing here, but I'm pretty sure a Gap size 2 is around a size 8 in other places. But i don't know because I can only wear Gap pants since their ankle lengths are even a bit too long on me and other places' pants are like four inches too long.

How fast do standard poodles grow? I want to get one in Feb for my birthday, but live in apartment where dogs are not allowed (big ones, anyway). So I was hoping that by June when I move to SD that it will still be on the small side.

Also, she's been going into my fridge and stealing my beer. I have cans of Tecate and bottles of Shiner and I wouldn't care if she took the Tecate but she's stolen 3 bottles of Shiner already. Didn't ask or even say 'BTW I drank some of your beer.'

5. based on your family history, your health, risk factors, etc., what do you think you'll die from?
EDIT because it's too soon to post again: Are you patient or impatient? Or somewhere in between?
I'm usually a very calm person, but when I can't take something any more (like recently some people around me) then I usually cut and run... so I try not to get in touch with anything concerning the group/ thing/ person, and don't talk about it.
Do you also cut and run? Or do you try to find a compromise or something like that?
Will it scare the crap out of us do you think?

I am assuming you, or at least most of you, have seen the new 2008 Cadillac CTS commercial with Kate Walsh in it. My question is, is that...there is another one with a guy in it....I was wondering, is he an actor like Kate is or is he just some random person? (Cadillacs site gives nothing but their first names next to the videos on their site) So...I was just wondering...who is that guy?
okay, what i mean to say is, would my life be sutable for the little brats to watch, or would it be a case of their parents watch an episode and decide to complain to the company and force them to certificate it?
my REAL QUESTION here is if so, what would they certificate it as...
so, my questions to YOU, the random questions club, is
1)do you ever get the feeling of being watched when nobody's there? (and you AREN'T doing anything wrong!)
2)do you think your life would be a sutable tv show, for the whole family?
3)what would you certificate your life?
4)am i compleetly bonkers? (optional, lol ^^)
that's all folks,
2. What would you do/how would you react if you were sitting in your 1br apartment and all of a sudden your front door just randomly swung open? Because I totally just almost shit my pants.

For anyone who's lost (the really bad kind of 'loss') a real, honest-to-god friend, not just an internet acquaintance (those being extremes and not meant to imply that you can only have one or the other)... what did you do about your online linkages? Myspace friends, facebook, etc? Did you leave them? Did you rearrange them so they'd be less prevalent (myspace top 8, for example)? Did you eventually delete them, and if so, how long?

There's this boy that lives on/by a beach (or island) and he finds a baby (tiger?) shark. It's very Flipper~esqu. He and the shark grow up with each other and are friends. Also, this kid can draw really good. He keeps drawing these pictures (in chronological order) of the same girl over and over, then one day he meets her and is all "You're the girl in my dreams/pictures." And she's says "OMG! You even drew a picture of me when I had that bad hair cut." And he's like, "You should meet my shark." So, these kids (teens) and their friend shark are amigos until shark attacks suddenly began happening locally and everyone blames the the boy's shark.
-I am supposed to put down a $40 'deposit' for this appointment. Is this a deposit on the tattoo or just paying the artist for his time?
-Am I expected to tip him for this appointment?
-Do artists usually charge extra to draw a draft of the design for you?
-Should I tell him that this is my first tattoo? I am worried about being overcharged since I don't have a good idea of what a tattoo like this will cost.
-Is there anything else I should know to avoid looking like a total noob when I go in there tomorrow?

Last night my friend couldn't find his wallet anywhere, we split up and looked all over for it and pretty much emptied his car. He ended up calling the cops and filling out a police report after throwing a fit for about 30 minutes where we thought he would end up smashing something, but then when we brought him home a few hours after the whole thing started, he found it underneath the floor mat. Should he tell the cops he found it? If this was you, how much would you have killed him?
I punched him in the arm and told him I'd sew his wallet to his leg so he wouldn't lose it again, I'm pretty used to his life being full of ~*dramaz*~.
Mine: A guy walks into a bar and says "Ouch!" XD

1. You can only watch one movie for the rest of your life. You don't have to watch it on repeat or anything, but it is the only thing you can ever watch again. Which movie do you choose?
2. What movie makes you want to take a spork to your eyes or bash in your own skull because it was just that bad?
3. Which actor or actress, in your humble opinion, should retire immediately?
4. And which should finally be given the praise he or she deserves?
5. How do you feel about the amount of money people in the entertainment industry make?
I'm tied between the emperor in Star Wars and O'Brien from 1984.
Do you even GIVE A FUCK if Dumbledore (you know... the FICTIONAL CHARACTER) is gay?
Also, peanut butter?
It doesn't seem any cheaper. You still need to make a down payment and pay hundreds of dollars a month.
When your lease is up you might have to pay mileage fees or damage fees. You get the option to buy the car but I'm sure it'll cost more than if you just bought it originally.
1. Should I buy the more expensive phone with more features?
2. What kind of phone do you have?
3. Do you like the trendy phones like Razors (or however you spell it) and Chocolates?
I know people hate these questions but it's been bugging me for weeks. Last resort now before I tear my hair out!
her car broke down tonight, so my mom (who makes the payments on my car) told my aunt that she could borrow my car until she gets hers fixed. my school is over 30 miles away, and i need the car to drive to school tomorrow. i won't have it back until at least sunday or monday. my mother didn't even tell me about this... i didn't realize anything had happened until i went to get into the car and it was gone.
how would you react if this happened to you?
eta: i know it's technically her car, but i wish she would have said something to me about it. i really wouldn't have had a problem with it, i can just have my boyfriend drive me to school. in my opinion, it was kind of a sly, bitchy move on her part.

So your personal thoughts about pink hair aside, how do I convince my grandma that I should be allowed to do whatever I want to my hair so she can convince my mom that I can do whatever I want to my hair?
And no, I can't convince my mom. In her eyes people aren't important and she doesn't have to listen to them.
