Big Love

(no subject)

Tomorrow night we're having girls night @ the bar. The bar will be closed but the female bartender/owner and a few of the female regulars, me included, will be having a sleepover there to decorate for Halloween. She will be providing the drinks obviously (tequila gimlets, ftw!) and even though we are helping her, I still feel like I need to bring a treat since we're drinking for free. What should I make? I was thinking Guinness cupcakes or Baily's brownies. Any other ideas?

PS if I make the Baily's brownies do I just substitute the liquid with Baily's?

My younger brother clicked on a link posted in the WoW forums. It was a JPG, but redirected someplace else... and has a keylogger now?? (I don't get how that works) So... my question is,

How do you remove a keylogger?
How do you detect the thing in the first place?

I realized that I've been listening to the same 15 songs over and over again for the past few weeks, and they're depressing as hell. And in turn, end up making me depressed. I don't really like most of the stuff that's played on the radio today. So my questions for you TQC ...

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?

(no subject)

Oh man. My middle school band director is a student at the college I am now a student at.

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?

Hallo, fabulous interweb users. I need your 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

A bit tl;dr, sorry...

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. :/

Stage Kissing

So I am doing this play with someone and it requires a kiss. However, the other person doesn't feel comfortable actually kissing. We are trying to devise some way to make it look real but still being 'fake.' We've already ruled out placing the thumbs over the lips one <.

I have vertigo

And I feel like shooting myself! I'm dizzy, I can't move my head in the positions I want and the anti-nausea medicine is not doing much!

Does anyone have positional vertigo? (when you roll around in bed, you become dizzy)

Does anyone know if the exercises for it are any good? Thank you in advance.

It's 5:30 in the morning. I just got home from a pretty awesome, but tiring, night out. I have a class at 9:30 and one at 12:30. Should I even bother going to the first class? I wouldn't be missing a test or anything, but the notes I would take are helpful on the quizzes I have every Thursday. Or should I suck it up and get up early?

This morning the alarm clock went off at 6:40am. My boyfriend and I got up and got ready. He left for work and then called me saying that it was really only 4:30am. My alarm clock was the right time when we went to sleep.

What happened to my alarm clock?
Has this ever happened to you?
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?!

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.

The Pros:
1) It's a job
2) It's exactly what I've been looking for

The Cons:
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?

Poll #1076239 The Rules of Embarrassment

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?

Toilet paper
Preparation H
Box of Twinkies
People magazine
Fabreeze (however you spell it)
Odor-Eater shoe inserts
3/$10 underwear pack
Kitty litter
Hair dye (in the color you have now)
I have no shame

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?

The very scenario I described above
The following Halloween,when 10 kids dress up as you. Their costume? Same hair as you, with a big wet stain around the crotch, and laughter

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?

Is there anything that you are afraid of that's really silly?
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.

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!??

So it's less than 10 weeks till Christmas apparently.

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?

When I don't get enough sleep (at least 8 1/2-9hrs) I have extreme difficulty breathing, enough that I need to use an inhaler. I got 6hrs last night, and every time I stand up my vision blacks out for about 3seconds.

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?

- Whenever someone goes off-topic into a story or conversation with another person in comments, do you ever read them? even if they go on for like 10 comments? does it annoy you?
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.

Let me try this again!

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?

So hey TQC, I have a bit of stupid teen drama that needs internets fixage!

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.

How come people who have been on LJ plenty long still bitch about not receiving comment notifications?


(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:

does anyone else here like seafood crab subs from Subway? a lot of Subway's don't even have the crab meat, but several of them around my area do. I love them on white bread with mayo, onions, & black olives. I just had one actually. it completely repulses 99.9% of the people I tell about it.

so am I alone in loving these delicious subs?

I'm unsure if I should choose to work alone or with a group on my English project. My professor hasn't talked about this yet, but I'm sure everyone will be working in a group. The assignment is to present a 15-20 minutes grammar lesson. We're suppose to turn in a page-long summary, make handouts, and provide exercises/quizzes for the class. The reason why I'm uncertain is because I don't know anyone REALLY well, but I have made friends in the class. I'm not sure if I trust anyone enough. I'm a huge perfectionist when it comes to school so I don't want to have to worry about anyone messing up. My professor said that if someone in the group doesn't show up, she'll dock off major points. We could choose to work alone or with 2-4 other people. My other concern is that I might not have enough time to do it all on my own.

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?

Do you use a worry stone or a stress doll or anything like that? Does it work?

If a pregnant woman wore a corset but wasn't very far along, would it hurt the baby? I was watching some movie with women wearing corsets and started wondering about it.

Got any scary movie recomendations? I've got a few coming from Netflix, but wanted to see what other people have seen and enjoyed. Also, my sister is trying to remember the name of an Italian movie where ballet dancers are killed... it's a horror/suspense movie. Does it sound familiar to anyone?

I have an essay due tomorrow for my 11.50 AM. I am having a heck of a time trying to focus and get it done. I had a bad night of sleep last night, and I don't really feel up to doing it.

So should I:

keep attempting to work; if you don't do it now you never will.
call it a night, wake up and early and do it tomorrow.

What are some study and essay writing tips you can offer?

What is your reaction to this?



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.

Have you ever been so excited you get all shaky and your heart beats fast, and you feel like a 7 year old riding on a monorail into Disney World!?
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.

 Why don't people want to own up to mistakes they've made/may have made in the past?

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?

So, long story short, I'm not 100% sure as I've had inaccurate tests before and it's probably wayyyyyyy to early to tell with a home test so after having some alarming symptoms since friday-ish I took a home pregnancy test and it's come up positive. Providing I get the same positive result from my blood test i'll be having on friday...

How many schools did you initially apply to right out of high school?
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?


 When you are considering housing for the next fall semester, when do you start thinking about potential roommates?

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?

 For once I have nothing to worry about--no money issues, no car issues, I have no big tests/papers/etc coming up, etc.  Literally nothing.  Which is worrying me.  Is that bad?

What could you really go for right now?
