PS if I make the Baily's brownies do I just substitute the liquid with Baily's?
I'm a nineteen-year-old college sophomore from New York.
How do you remove a keylogger?
How do you detect the thing in the first place?
1. Can you guys recommend some non-mainstream bands for me that might be new to me? Even if it's a local band from your area that has a myspace or a youtube video? I love all types of music, from classical to death metal. Anything and everything in between.
2. Does music affect your mood? Or do you pick your music based on how you're feeling at the moment?
3. And inspired by something I just had to utter ... What is the strangest thing you've had to say lately?
How weird is that?
What weird thing happened to you lately?
Who was the last person you ran into that you didn't think you'd ever see again?
Coldstone: good or bad?
Prepositions at the end of a sentence: okay or something to avoid at all costs?
What kinds of grades do you get on them?
If you're a fan of manga, where are some websites to read the manga online? I can download the anime, but manga's a bit more difficult.
What's your favourite anime/manga?
2.) If so, does this concern you?
3.) If so, do you plan on having your own children?
2) If you follow baseball: Who are you rooting for in the World Series? Who is the team you normally root for?
3) Red Sox fans: Who is your favorite player this year? Whose shirts do you own, if any? BECKETT. He is my love. haha. I own these shirts: Ramirez, Beckett, Pedroia
4) Are you going to any costume parties this weekend/next week?
5) Any tips to get rid of ants in the kitchen? (traps didnt seem to help)
I'm writing a story. I'm bad at picking out names. What's a good name for a cat? The cat in question was named by a middle-aged man with a grown child, if that makes any difference in the name you pick out for me.
If you give me a name, why did you pick that name? Is there any significance behind it? Details, plz! :D
I created another account on this computer for the SO because I didn't want him snooping through my files whenever he wanted to surf the net (I have a LOT of stuff I don't want him to see/know about because he won't get it and is always weird about stuff like that -- ie. fandom-related NC17 material).
Trouble is, all he has to do when he goes in his account is click on computer resources, documents, [my name]'s documents, and there it all is. He hasn't figured this out yet -- but he will, soon. Is there any way I can put, like, a blanket password on all my stuff so he can't get to it? Or stop my documents from being accessed from his account at all?
The trouble with this computer is it was bought in another country, therefore uses another language -- one I don't really understand too well. I can do basic things and figure out small problems, but I can't work this out. Can anybody help me, please?
And yes, I know, secrets in relationships are bad and destructive blah blah pancakes. He'd flip, and freak, and start all the "are you being perverted on the Internet?!" crap again, like the last time he stumbled across it five years ago. Not everyone understands Slash. :/
what were they?
what is your favorite iced dessert?
do you like the color purple?
( Collapse )
'Everything' is not an option. Be specific and think of one thing.

Does anyone know if the exercises for it are any good? Thank you in advance.
2. WHAT IS ONE DISH/DESSERT YOU WISH YOU COULD MAKE?
3. WHAT IS ONE DISH/DESSERT NO HOLIDAY IS COMPLETE WITHOUT?
4. SHOULD WE HAVE A TQC COOK-OFF?
Do you think we are having another baby boom?
Do you drink/try to drink 8 glasses of water a day?
What's something healthy you WILL NOT eat?
A girl just started screaming in my school library the other day, at another girl. And she was ignoring the teachers and everything. Pretty crazy.
I can't stand it. When I was wearing my lip ring I'd tell them, "Of course it hurt. They put a needle through my lip! What do you think?"
What did you win?
Do you know anyone who's won something from playing that game? and what did they win?
so far i've won a mcflurry. i don't even eat that nastiness
-ETA- My neighborhood is under voluntary evacuation from the San Diego fires right now. My roommate is gone and has been for a few days. I kind of hate her. Should I take her laptop/framed photos/obviously important and sentimental things with me when/if I do evacuate?
2. What's your favorite cookie?
3. Would you take a free flu shot through your work if they were offering it?
4. What are some perks/benefits that you receive from your work?
I'd be wearing this hip scarf.
And a spaghetti strap shirt with a longish flowy skirt.
But which colors?
Which combination should I wear?
(Sorry, no ticky :-p)
2) You see a dog running down the street, trailing its leash behind it. Cars are lined up about 8 deep behind it so as not to hit it. You are driving in the opposite direction. Do you try to help somehow?
3) Have you ever placed a personal ad?
this morning, a fucking fly kept landing on me and eventually, it succeeded in waking me up.
TQC, what's the most annoying way you've ever been woken up?

If so, what did you do?
I went back to bed and my boyfriend just went to work.
When I went back to bed, there was a kitchen knife in our bed. How did it get there?!
Is our new apartment haunted?!
I found the perfect job for me on Craigs List and applied before I read their fine print (that their starting wage sucks). I have an interview in 4 1/2 hours.
1) It's a job
2) It's exactly what I've been looking for
1) The job is $4-5/hour less than I need to make ends meet
2) The job is $4-5/hour less than I made at my last job
3) I'm getting married in 11 days and will need next Wednesday the 31st - Wednesday the 7th off
4) I'm not sure I could negotiate a $4-5/hour pay increase
The timing isn't ideal but the conditions of my unemployment require me to look for full time work every day otherwise I would just wait until after the wedding. The cons outweigh the pros but I'm not sure if I should turn my back on the opportunity I've been looking for.
If you were me, would you go to the job interview?
- What was the last random thing you found in a random place?
- if you were a one man band, what would you play?
lets play a game.. is there something that you've been wondering about a certain TQC member? what is it? the only person that can't answer the question is the person who the question is about.. lets see how well we know eachother. :)
You're at the supermarket in the check-out line. There's a cute person (of the gender you find attractive) behind you, checking you out. You smile a little. A little flirtation back. It's interesting. Then, you get to the conveyor belt and you realize what you have in your basket. Which of these items would be embarrassing to be seen purchasing in this situation?
In high school, you're in class and have to pee really bad. The teacher trips and falls and you burst out laughing. It's such uncontrollable laughter that you end up losing control of your bladder and pissing yourself. In class. Humiliated, you flee to the restroom before anyone notices. You hear a 'Is that...pee?' before you leave. Which would be more embarrassing?
There's this new product that allows half the calories you consume to pass harmlessly through your body. You can eat what you want, and only pick up half the calories. It's the ultimate weight loss pill. However, the side effect is that you get uncontrollable gas. You cannot keep it in, and the gas comes in all decibels and aromas up to 2 hours after eating. Would you take this pill?
I remember one time, in a hotel, my friend started flickering the light at like, 2am, and it scared the shit out of me. I hid under the covers, and I was 18 at the time. I'm not afraid of the dark, but the flickering scared the SHIT out of me.
What other fears do you have (that are a bit more rational)?
I have anxiety disorder, and I am afraid of having panic attacks. But that's pretty much it. Ohh, and roaches crawling on my face at night.
What should be the new cool
Nothing says Halloween like ___________. (mark all that apply)
ETA: This poll is totally legally binding and by voting you agree to use whichever word wins for all eternity (or until they come up with a new, new word for cool) and never again use the word cool. (unless refering to temperature)
My roommate just came home to say she's moving out this weekend. If we don't burn down, a week from now I'll have my own place. :D
Want to talk about it?
( Collapse )

Will you stay in touch with me via email?

What is your favorite smell?
When you get cold, what body part(s) gets cold first?
how old are they now and how old were you when you had them?
Should I wake Mike up and bother him, or let him continue to sleep?

EDIT: Enough of the blowjobs, people - we're not that sort of friends. ;)
i just moved to santa cruz for college, and the air up here is SOOOOOOO DRYYYYYYYYY. i have to put on more carmex like every ten minutes or my lips will start bleeding because theyre so chapped.

What's your latest and greatest epic fail moment?
*Luckily, I have a discount program through my insurance company, so I'm only looking at around $350 to get the other two teeth pulled. AND I called the dentist, and I can see the surgeon tomorrow at 9am and will probably get them pulled. yay.
ive heard "pierecing blue" but all the pics of him seem to suggest hazel.
You're in the Clue house, where a small party is underway, and it's full of annoying people. Sensing an opportunity to off the person who pisses you off the most, you take action. Who takes the fall?
Which room would you manage to get them alone for their ultimate, gruesome fate?

Role play! You are a surgeon. You have 2 patients who both need lung transplants. Both patients are the same age, gender, race, same criminal record--everything! Except patient A smoked for 3/4 of their life and patient B did not. Odds of recovery are the same for both patients. Who do you choose to give the lung?
Again! You are a water fairy. You have enough water to save one burning house, or to give it to an endagered whale preggers with twins who is in a dry tank. Who gets your water!??
One more: it's the end of your school day and you're dead tired, having slept 4 hours last night. You're watching a movie on how smoking can kill you (WHAT?!?!) and the lights are off. Do you sleep and zomg lose ~*~TEN POiiNTS~*~, or tell your teacher to shut it and catch the z's. WHAT DO YOU DO?
ETA: well look at me fuck up my own question! Or do you watch nasty autopsys and make dumb lj posts because you didn't sleep?
My parents have asked me what I wanted and I'm considering asking for a new personal music player. I have an iPod mini that would be perfect if the memory was a bit larger. And could play videos.
So, thequestionclub convince me. Should I ask for a Creative Zen or iPod? Or can you recommend me another brand of player?
I live in Scotland so UK centric i.e. products available over here would be preferable.

What do you consider "the lowest thing" a person can do during a disaster?

..in America they're hardly allowed in any public places. I would love to take my dog on the train downtown and take her to Grant Park (if she's even allowed there!)
Should dogs in America have more freedom?
2. what is the last bridge you burnt?
I have the 'scene' clothes, I have a fake frame so I can pull myspace angles, and my friend's making me some buttons with made-up band names on them.
What should I do with my hair? At the moment, it's just past my shoulders with almost-full bangs. I need something that screams myspace, because quite a few of my friends aren't that familar with it.
Does this happen to you?
Is this normal? If not, how do I get the M.D. at the school clinic to stop giving me the brush-off when I ask about it?
Are you tired of your life? Do you ever wish that you could just stop existing? Do you think you would like being a ghost?
Yes; sometimes; I'm not sure.
Who is your favorite character (one that you identify with) in a movie or tv series?
River Tam, from the series Firefly and the movie Serenity.
For me it's Carry You Home by James Blunt.
So I have basically a four day weekend coming up, and have no idea what to do with this sudden influx of time I have. Normally I have a lot of school work to do, and even that isn't the case right now, since I'm between subjects in most of my classes.
So what would you do if you had a four day weekend? Something fun would be nice.
(if you don't have a picture, describe it to the best of your ability)
OR you can tell me about the art pieces/art work at YOUR house.
What did you eat for dinner tonight?
Second, here's a fact-based question. What are urgent care procedures for patients with concussions in the US? Specifically with insurance and forms. Do they wait until after treatment is received, or do they ask the person who brought in the patient to fill them out ?
Two grandmothers with their two granddaughters;

two fathers with their two daughters;
two mothers with their two sons;
two maidens with their two mothers;
two sisters with their two brothers;
Yet only six in all liked buried here;
all born legitimate, from incest clear.
How are these 6 people related?
I'm going crazy!
I usually read them..I find people interesting even if they're divulging un-needed info about themselves. or maybe i'm just nosey. although..there are some other sites that it annoys me on. I think I just find people on here a lot more intriguing for some reason.
-What would be a pet peeve of yours, particularly in the way other people behave, or look?
I know this is pretty sterotypical, but I seem to know an awful lot of egotistical, superficial gay men, and it annoys the crap out of me. their constant "fat people are sooooo disgusting" "he's dressed way too straight for me" "why is she wearing such a nasty shirt?" i'm not saying ALL are this way, because I know two gay guys that aren't that way and are my closest friends. I just don't know why there seem to be so many others that do act that way.
-Do you know any gay guys like this, or do I just seem to always run into them?
Should I get a bowflex or should I get a treadmill?

2. to those that have seen the photoshopped image of the nipple larva in email warning women to wash their bras before they wear them after buying them, did the picture freak/gross you out? even if you knew it was a fake and a myth before you looked at it, did it still freak you out?
3. do you consider yourself to be kinky? why?

Do you tell your heart how to feel, or your brain how to think?

2. What's your favorite Blazing Saddles quote?
iowa boy... aka jeff... aka boy I "sorta kinda dated" 2 summers ago before I left Iowa, told me he is going to try and come see me this weekend. I'm kinda freaking out. i thought it was because he was drunk lastnight when he was telling me that but apparently it was more than that.
He's one of the ones I hooked up with numerious times when I would go back to see my friends.
He's going to try and come this weekend for The Spill Canvas concert on friday night and to see me because he "misses" me. Which he's said alot lately.
i was over him. I wasn't even going to see him when i went to iowa... cept he keeps calling and saying he misses me! he's not supposed to miss me!
What should I do?! Let him come because I DO miss him and he's great in bed.. (the best!!) or tell him I can't handle it because I am a dork and want him just for me and not to leave when he comes?
2. Have you ever had pink eye? Was it awful? (I think I do. My eye is pink and it hurts. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow.)
jason schwartzman or schuyler fisk for me, i think :)
edit: i meant actors who also sing, or musicians who also act.
So basically, I fucking loathe my best friend's girlfriend. I seriously would love to just fucking bash her face in against a locker door or something equally violent and painful. The weirdness is that I have never truly met her-- I mean, I've talked to him when her and him are together, but she's creepily silent and gives off that totally bitchy aura. It's gotten to the point where I will avoid my friend altogether if he even talks about her. And. I. Have. NO. FUCKING. REASON. TO. HATE. HER.
So TQC, what should I do? Keep festering in my hate, tell him about it, or what?
EDIT: Does the fact that our shared other besty (a chick that is definitely not attracted sexually to him), that is friends with a decent number of his girl's friends, loathes her as well? Or am I really just blind to the cocklust (as one of my other friends says)?
EDIT2: I feel dirty doing this, but her myspace pics explain the bitchy look/aura I'm talking about.
(lulzy answers more than welcome)
When is LJ going to fix this shit?
THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME. IT GETS FIXED. GET USED TO IT AND STFU.
(ETA: Obviously, the above is a result of 5ish people asking about this in the last 24ish hours. It's been an issue for years, and people have been complaining for years, and I guess I'm just surprised that it still surprises people when it happens. Especially the ones who don't realize that it will get fixed within a few days, unless you're newreflections and the comment-fixer gods hate you =P)
Anyway, now that I'm a total bitch, some nicer questions:
Do you like Cherry Coke?
How often do you eat salad?
Why didn't my new camera come with the USB cord that the instruction manual claims it was supposed to have come with?
Do you know the way to San Jose?
I don't know, but it's annoying.
Not often enough.
Because the digital camera gods hate me.
No, but I'm sure I could mapquest it.
so am I alone in loving these delicious subs?
I asked my brother for advice on this and he said that it would look bitchy of me if I'm the only one doing it alone while everyone else is in a group because it'll look like I think I'm better than everyone else. Do you think this is true?
What would you do?
Ex who likes you hardcore and wants a commited relationship but you just don't feel much of a spark with, hence the reason for the breakup?
New person who you really like, but is already in an open relationship and is willing to be friends with benefits?
Why the hell does this guy have dreams about Abraham Lincoln and a beaver?
Have you ever had a dream that involved a public figure/celebrity? Can you describe what you remember?
Do you use a worry stone or a stress doll or anything like that? Does it work?

Who wants to have a baby with me?
Thank you :)
Is Britney today hottest star?

i've been asking around but am met with long silences, and metaphysical white coats in the depths of their eyes...

**NOT WORK/CHILD/SPOUSE/ANYTHING APPROPRIATE!!** OPEN IN TOTAL PRIVACY!!!
My reaction was the most honest and sincere, mouth-gaping shock face I have ever made.
P.S - If this is against the rules... don't ban me please, just delete it.. Since I gave a warning I think it'll be okay.. and some people's icons are pretty raunchy.. There's not penor or anything. Just amazing nastiness.
2. What sort of LJ account must one have in order to have a custom mood theme (for example, if I got my hands on the above Doctor Who one)
3. How does one go about selecting a custom mood theme?
4. Is there anything you're a bit obsessed with at the moment?
5. What's something that other people are obsessed with, that you look at and go "...wat?"
6. Best holiday ever=________?
7. Do you steal icons? Why/why not?
1) If you could only wash either your bath towel or your bed sheets for the rest of your life, which would you choose and why?
2) If you had to give up either toothpaste or deoderant, which would you choose and why?
3) What would you think of a manager at a new job who asked you the above questions during your first week of employment?
That's how I feel right now, for various reasons, including a possible road trip home with my awesome friend, and a pit stop in Tampa to see MORE awesome friends. I am so excited I could pee.
Do you have anything important/big you have to do this week? Take a test? Presentation at work? A hot date? Booty call?
I have 2 tests, but that's it.
I mean, I know this chick irl and she's pretty sweet, but I introduce her to the wonderful world of livejournal and bam! Insta-cunt.
2. What did Mike get me for my birthday???
3. What's your favorite Sean Penn movie? Or, if you don't like Sean Penn, why the hell not?!?!?
I posted a couple of days ago about a girl I used to be friends with. Well, I sent her a message asking what had happened back in the day and why she was getting back in contact now. Her response was pretty much a brush off about how stupid people are and how she had to get to class. I responded to that asking again what the issue was (this was all in about two hours after I made the post here) and she still hasn't responded.
Do you think she's pissed about me bringing it up?
Do people really think that people they've been assholes to will friend them on the internet no problem? Why?
Unrelated: What, in your opinion, should a vampire look like?
what is the best way to tell a rock star there is a 75% chance he has impregnated you?
For those that either went, dropped out, then returned or waited and then went, how many schools did you apply to then?
Also, please note whether or not you knew exactly what you wanted to do and applied for the programs accordingly.
What did you do when you didn't get in? Apply again the next year? Get put on a waiting list? Continue to work at your crappy job until you got in?
So... what things can you do better drunk than when you're sober?
Do you like getting caught in the rain?
Is there something you should be doing right now, but aren't? What?
When would it be appropriate to propose the idea of rooming together?
(I feel really awkward asking someone about it "too early," and have never had to since I usually was asked before I ever even thought about it. Now I have an apartment all lined up, but no one to room with me! )
Best / Wost roommate stories?
What could you really go for right now?
I quite enjoy doing it, but I'd never let anyone do it to me.
If no, do you cover up your obvious bastard-like behavior in not remembering/learning names by being a jackass and other random vulgarities to show my disdain by doing things like "Oh, hey! ... Guy!" Or do you go "Oh balls, I forgot your name" ?
Should I throw away the two pairs of pants in my closet that I've had for about seven years now? They still fit just fine (in that they are at least two or three sizes too big), but one of them has a long rip up the side of a leg and the other has a hole in the crotch that isn't getting smaller (and no, it's not where the zipper is. I checked.)
My answers for the first two:
1 - I try to remember names, but I don't see people often enough to get the chance to go "HEY! YOU'RE [Person X]"
2 - I've taken to calling people "sir", "ma'am", and "Captain". But at the same time I'll sometimes say if I've forgotten a name.
Why does this one dress stink so horridly?
TQC members, would any of you be interested in this puppy? (Obviously I probably can't get him to you, I'm just curious about the willingness of people to take on pit bulls I guess.)
