1. Do you have any odd bathroom behaviors, other than doing your business?

2. Do you eat in the bathroom? Why or why not?

Tonight I was at the mall, walked in the lounge/bathroom in the food court, and there was a girls' softball team just chilling by the sinks eating their Ice Dreams from Chick Fil A. For some reason it really fucking irked me...and it scared the peepee away :(

TQC, when your roommates are asleep, and you just realize you have bubble wrap and you get the sudden urge to just start popping it but you can't...how is one to contain themself?

How long have you been online? 

Conan?

Is anybody watching Conan O'Brien right now?  Do Jessica Alba's boobs look funny in that dress?

(This may be a re-run, as she is promoting Fantastic Four...I'm really not up on my movie knowledge.)

*Edit*  It is definitely a re-run, but the question still stands.

Do you believe in ghosts?
Any other element of the paranormal?
What about things metaphysics-related?

I now have everything Gravitation related (manga and anime series, OVA, etc). Anime/Manga fans, what series shall I take on next? I won't stick with anything with ugly art or boring dialog :\I've already exhausted the following series: Gundam Wing, Chobits, Gravitation, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Dragonball/Z/GT, Sailor Moon, Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, Inuyasha, Fushigi Yugi. I refuse to get into Bleach, Death Note or Naruto :P

ETA: If my work (Borders) gives away the cardboard cutout of Stephen Colbert and I somehow get it, which one of you wants it? It's him putting his arm around/pointing to the display of his new book, hah.

1. If there's a piece of jewellery you wear every day, do you keep it on when you sleep?

2. What are some good costumes that can be assembled out of stuff I already own? I only need it for a few hours, under duress, so I don't feel like putting a ton of effort in. I own your usual teenage-girl clothes, Collapse )

3. This was asked a while ago, but I think some people misunderstood the question. Are there any English words of different origin that are completely interchangeable in all circumstances? Are there any words like in any language? (e.g. inflammable and flammable, except with different origins)

NOTE: Not every synonym is like that. For example, "small" and "little" don't count because "It makes a small difference" and "It makes little difference" don't mean the same thing, plus you have to include an "a" in the first use. "Catsup" and "ketchup" don't count because they have the same origin.

New employee and TQC

1. A new employee joins your company. You can see their computer monitor from your desk and you notice that they LJ. Do you say anything to them about your own LJing? If yes, would you friend them/let them friend you? If no, do you stalk them on LJ?

2. The new employee is unaware of your LJ presence. They become an active member of TQC. Do you let them know that you're a part of TQC? If no,  would you continue to participate in picture posts if you had been doing so before?

3. The new employee is unaware of your LJ presence. They start bitching about their co-worker (i.e. you) on TQC. Do you confront them about it? If yes, then do you do it in person or do you do it on TQC?

(This is hypothetical. There are no new new employees at my job.)

Online Prescriptions

I'm looking for a personal recommendation for buying prescriptions online. My doctor's receptionist recommended trying online sites because some of them will let you pay one co-pay for more than one refill. I'm going to have a lapse in insurance, so it's pretty important that I at least be able to fill them all at once, regardless if I can pay one co-pay or one for each.

Any recommnedations?

Do you or anyone you know have MRSA?

Should I be worried because a man at my work has it? He's only in the office for about an hour a day but I do have to deal with his paper work and he often stops in just to use the bathroom. He's always been kind of a scumbag and he's already given it to both of his daughters and his brother.

For those of you in Southern California, can you post pictures that you've taken showing flames/smoke/firefighters?

If possible, can you take a video of the chaos and post it? They're just showing the same things over and over on the news, and I'd rather see what my fellow TQC-ers are seeing.

What I meant to say that is that the majority of the news is about which celebrities are in danger of losing their homes and who already has. I'm not concerned with them because it's not like they don't have the money to build 23 other houses. It's everyone else I want to know about. The people that don't have the money to build another house.

my second toe is swollen, stiff, a little hurty, and kinda pink. i noticed it hurt when i moved it while i was still in bed this morning, and it doesn't seem to be any more swollen now than when i got up 5 hours ago. i don't remember hitting it or jamming it or smashing it or anything, but i'm a giant klutz so i suppose i could have.

any ideas about what's going on? is it going to fall off? should i go to an urgent care today?

Pasta/spaghetti/wine

It's a well known fact that a lot of people like using wine in spaghetti bolognaise and other pasta dishes.

My question: In the takeaway stores which serve pastas (without labelling the ingredients, the pasta is just scooped into a plastic container) do most of them use wine in their sauce? I know that every takeaway store or restaurant is different, but I mean, the majority of stores. Does anyone know?
Just curious.

Thanks for any help.

2- Which addiction should I feed today: Painting or Video Games? (Through wasting money on one or the other.) I equally want to do both, but I don't think spending a ton of money is wise.

3- Is there a water tower near you (like, in your city)? If so, what colour is it? The one here is teal, and I can see it from my window right now, it's kinda strange looking. :(

When you send an e-mail to a professor what do you write as the subject line? I always write something stupid like just "Hello" because I feel it's a bit imposing if I write something like "Letter of Recommendation Request". But anyway, I am about to e-mail a professor and request a letter of recommendation (he used to teach at my school but then moved to California so I can't meet with him in person). What should I write as the subject line?

Okay, I took your advice and was straightforward. Thanks.

 I wanted to make a poll but I don't have a paid account, so I'll have to do this the old-fashioned way.

How do you feel about the following forms of PDA:
-Kissing (closed-mouth)
-Kissing (with tongue)
-Groping (either with you as the groper or the gropee)?

Does the location change it:
-A bar
-A restaurant
-At the movies
-Just on the street?

Does the company change it:
-Your friends
-Their friends
-Your family members
-Their family members?

And finally:
Do you often engage in PDA that if you saw other people doing it, you'd be grossed out or irritated? 
Would it depend on WHO those other people were, in terms of how grossed out/irritated you'd be?

EDIT: I mean, does it seem like they aren't friending you to just be your friend, they're friending you because they're nosy about what's in your journal or whatever.

Since I feel like someone has drop-kicked my head...

Have you had your wisdom teeth out?

If yes, when did you have them out?
If no, how old are you currently?

If you've had them yanked, did they put you under or just use a local anesthetic? How'd your recovery go? Anything I should or shouldn't do?

I'm 25, and I just I had my upper two removed yesterday. They just used a local, which wasn't a big deal, but I think maybe they should put you to sleep for the recovery process since it hurts like mad. He said we could do the bottom ones in 6 months or so, as it wasn't really urgent but there's obviously not room for them.

Poll #1076923 Before and after

One day, you're helping your SO clean, and you find some old pictures. Your SO's name is on the back of each picture, but the image is of someone of the opposite sex. Either a burly guy or a shapely woman. When you show them to your SO, they fall on their ass, looking defeated, and say they can't lie to you any longer. Your SO had a sex change long before you met them, and those pics were how they used to look, and s/he was so sure that all the pictures were destroyed, but obviously missed a few. You look back at the pictures. Burly guy/shapely girl looks back at you. Does this information change anything in the relationship?

i really wish someone would tell glitterati_core what to do, and read this entire thing. glitterati_core is sorry if she didn't make it clear, but she was kind of frazzled. (D:) bear with glitterati_core. she needs advice.

glitterati_core is in love with a guy who she's positive loves her back. they were so happy before. they broke up six months ago, but they still talk sometimes, and they hung out last saturday, and ended up rekindling everything. they told each other they missed each other, and they were both happy that things were the same they used to be. he told glitterati_core that they were both liars if they said there was nothing left between them, and he told glitterati_core he missed her. he kissed glitterati_core like he used to, they laid together in his car, and he held glitterati_core and kissed her like he didn't want to let go, and nothing was awkward. a few months ago, he hurt glitterati_core so badly. he told glitterati_core that they were getting back together after he did some things he needed to take care of, but then called if off because he has so much to lose right now and that he had to grow up. ( glitterati_core's parents hate him, he's 18, she's fifteen.) he is constantly telling glitterati_core that he wished they would have got back together... everyone knows they should be together, and they know it, too, but he hasn't said anything about that. glitterati_core has already lost dignity, and can't bear to lose him again by scaring him and telling him she thinks they should get back together. glitterati_core doesn't want to lose what dignity she have left. he told glitterati_core saturday that he isn't trying to hurt her again... glitterati_core knows that if they tried again, things would be taken seriously. glitterati_core would give anything to/for him.

should glitterati_core call him tonight and tell him that they should get back together, or no? maybe he's just scared to bring it up? glitterati_core is at the end of the line.

ETA: why did glitterati_core delete her post?

In terms of couples:
Do you actively pick 'your song', or does it have to have special meaning (i.e., first song you danced to, etc)?

My friend just chose a song she liked as her and the boy's song. I think this is ridiculous.

Billing hassles

I moved into a new apartment September 1st, and my roommates and I have paid one electric bill since then, which was addressed to us.  We notified them that we'd be the new people at the apartment as of Sept. 1st. 
We got a letter addressed to the previous tenants today, with a notice that they will shut off the power in 2 weeks if the account isn't paid off.  The bill was for over 200 dollars, which is at least 3 months electricity.  We're guessing that he just didn't take his name off the account.
My roommates and I are currently debating about what to do.  Will we get in trouble for opening someone else's mail if we call to try and sort out this problem, or will the electric company realize that we paid the bill for September?  I figure that if they sent us the shutoff notice, then they won't realize the discrepancy when they go to shut off the power, either.  My roommates are afraid that if we call, then we'll get in trouble for opening someone else's mail, and they'll tell us to pay the bill since we are now in the apartment.
Settle the debate, TQC!

Okay, for all of you that have excellent movie memories...

There is this movie that I have seen a long long time ago and I've been racking my brain to remember the name of it. Help!

Only things I remember:
This may or may not have been a Jim Henson creation.
There is an evil queen (of course) who the heroine eventually finds out is very old and has a room full of younger women's heads all in jars. She switches from these heads from time to time, as she doesn't want to look old.

That's all I remember. Yeah, It's vague, but this is driving me CRAZY. I looked on Jim Henson sites and couldn't find anything similar, does anyone out there know what I'm talking about, or did I make this movie up when I was a little kid?


Edit: You guys are really fast, thank you! That's seriously been bugging me for a straight week.



scariest part! ;)



Also, if you have no idea, what are the next three movies on your netflix (or "movies to see") list?

ebay

Hey, I'm kind of new to ebay, but I'm noticing a lot of items that are up for sale at $0.01, and there's always a bunch of them. Are they just scams? If it helps, the particular one I'm looking at has a 99% feedback rate, and I'm scrolling through the almost-8000 comments to find out what the bad ones say. And the shipping is $70.00, but I think I can understand that for this particular item..

Weight loss

In April I weighed 130lbs, and now I am 22lbs lighter. Thing is, my diet is the same and I'm not working out. I HAVE however, been doing tons of travelling and standing for long periods of time. Could that really be the cause of 22lbs of weight loss?

Is there anyway I can make my comments stay align? When people reply to me @ my journal the comments always go right of center & ruin my page. Is there anyway to change that?

Do you ever???

*Do you feel like everyone on LiveJournal is 17?

*Do you ever just want to say something perverted or *racy* just to see the reaction? *no troll*
What would it be???

*Does it bother you when people post comments in the All Mighty TQC in a paragraph format?
(how many of those god damned answers should I try to fiddle fart out to answer?)

*I just ate Raman and feel like a God. What nasty junk did you just eat?

1 ) Would you rather fake an orgasm on national television and have it replayed repeatedly and be the butt of jokes for weeks OR randomly start faking an orgasm, loudly, in front of your ENTIRE extended family and friends at the dinner table?

2) Have you ever been completely unattracted to someone physically (not find them replusive, just zero attraction) and, but then once you get to know them you find them VERY attractive based on their personality?

3) So many girls I know think masturbation is gross. What's the deal??? This really drives me nuts. I can understand not doing it (heck, it's not really my thing either to be honest), but why do people think it's gross? Some of these same girls think it's just fine for a guy to masturbate. 

4) *If you don't want kids: Would you have biological children for someone if you were deeply, deeply in love with them and they wanted them (no kids is a deal-breaker)? What if the kids could be adopted, not biological?
    *If you do want kids: Would you refrain from having them to be with the person you loved (say they were very against creating children)? What if the person was okay with adopted kids and not biological?

5) 10 million dollars a year for three years if you'll go streaking while spanking your own ass with a paddle on stage at the Oscars. Will you take it? (Remember. There's like, a billion people who watch the Oscars.)

Fritos

Do Fritos Scoops taste much different from normal Fritos?

My dad was born in the states (he's now in Australia) and I (also in Australia) am trying to buy some from an Australian supplier, but they've only had scoops for a while now, so I'm wondering how different they are.

I just quit my old job TQC. What's the most liberating thing you've done lately?

I have T-Mobile's 600 minutes a month plan. I'm out of contract and just paying month-to-month now. I was at 3 minutes this afternoon, sent a text message, and was at 0 minutes, but still $.06 left on my available dollars. I quickly refilled a little online, and my plan renews tomorrow. I won't get charged for going over minutes will I? Is that just a contract thing and if I did go over I would just pay for the minutes I used? Plz help!

Why do girls here at my all-girls college seem to think it's fun to create high school drama? >:[
Wouldn't you think being out of high school they'd want to try something new? 
Why do the rich girls have to rub it in the poor girl's faces that they can spend $6,000 dollars in one setting? 

Okay this is opinions, but I'm curious =]

Will you use this post to tell your crush/person that you love but can't have/person that you love/or miss how you feel? i totally understand that we can all let that person know how we feel about them.. but honestly, you DON'T have to answer the question if all you're going to answer with is 'i don't have to tell them, they already know..' good for you.

If you do have a crush on someone, can you try to describe them using just 3 words?
