(Not meant to offend Canadians, btw. Or christians. I just found it interesting.)
Is it strange that I don't know my cell phone number?
Do you know your cell phone number?
How long did it take you to learn it?
Was I hacked??
Theres these lil windows from "snap shots" that appears over links sometimes in some livejournal community.. it's very annoying.. it's like a preview in image of what the link is about..
Anyone wanna suggest a cheap, cute, possibly funny Halloween costume?
Bonus points if it's completely free.
If so, have you cracked the code for "See What I see?"
What should I do, TQC? :(
I'm really hoping that the answer isn't going to be "print it really huge and then use a craft knife to cut out the letters"
I'm not really interested in getting it screenprinted because I've googled the local businesses who do screenprinting and they all have a minimum order of at least five, but I just want one! So how do I do it myself? :)
How would you react if you were in her position?
Do you have a neighbor like hers?
Will you tell me a story about your neighbor? Good or bad, doesn't matter.

2. Do you think your star sign represents you correctly? [regardless of whether you think they're full of shit or not]
Apparently I'm placid and patient, but that is so not true. I also do not have a violent temper.
3. If you could choose what day your birthday was on, what day would you pick? In the summer? Winter? Beginning of the year?
I'd put it in September so I could be one of the oldest in the class ;)
What was the last thing you said or did that made you think you were really stupid or failed at life?
If you don't have a vagina, edit accordingly.
Also, can you recommend any wonderfully beautiful movies such as Garden State, Eternal Sunshine, Science of Sleep, etc.?
(For example, my own was a first hand account of the Bosnian War.)
Same question, fiction?
1. How does this song make you feel?
2. Who does it remind you of?
3. Why? (optional)
It would hurt if he never saw me as anything more than a friend.
Should I freak out and like.. move my family out for a day and bug bomb my one bedroom apartment or what?
I guess I should probably treat my cats but that's probably expensive and I think a lot of treatments are kinda toxic. Aren't they? I saw web pages blasting Frontline and stuff. I have a baby I don't want to put something on the cats and then pet them and then pick up the baby.
Do you believe in soul mates?
Love at first sight?
How do you feel about one night stands?
Do you think sex is better when your in love?
If your partner wasn't able to have sex any more, would you stay with them?
Does a mans "size" really matter?
Do you believe it's possible to remain faithful to one person forever?
let's say your best friend was raped. she tells another friend (let's call her brenda) the next day. later that day, the two friends have an argument, out of your sight, which you hear about later. in the course of the argument, brenda tells your best friend, "i hope you get herpes." she fully means it.
how do you react to this?
eta: they had a big screaming match earlier (there are many other issues besides this), and now they're cool. what the fuck could POSSIBLY have happened?
I forgot to add ticky boxes
Do you like your cookies hard or soft/chewy?
My concentration in my art class is loosely mythical sea creatures or mermaids or underwater life. GIVE ME AN IDEA FOR A PROJECT.
What are you having/did you have for breakfast?
What's your favorite breakfast treat?
2. do you get itchy skin in the cold/weather changes?
3. what else happens when the weather changes? my carpal tunnel goes apeshit.
4. how do I go about weaseling information out of a bunch of professors who know why my flute professor was fired, but are not supposed to tell me? I don't care if they're not supposed to, I just need help getting info because I'm a damned gossip.
Why is the sun just now rising at 7:23?
Why did winter come so early this year? Usually, you can still wear short shorts and a tank top at halloween without being chilly.
Is it Nuclear Winter here to cancel out Global Warming?
What's in your pants?
If you're not wearing pants, where are they?
Has yours ever been a WTF color?
2. When is the last time you took a bath?
3. Why did your last relationship end?

When you're eating and cutting your food, do you switch your fork to the other hand while cutting and switch it back to put the food in your mouth?
Where are you from?
Missing out? Good discipline?
What if the person was good looking?
What if the person were young (18-25) and planned on marrying the one person they had ever had sex with? Would you think it would be "better" if they made sure they weren't "missing out"?
Would YOU rather sleep with just one person your whole life (and be in a serious relationship with them), or get it on with lots of people?
Well, when I woke up, I realized I forgot to put it in the fridge. It was still pretty warm. Not hot where it would burn me, but when I took off the lid, some steam rose.
I promptly put it in the fridge, but I'm somewhat nervous to eat it.
Is it savable?
Will I die if I reheat it and eat it???
Will you show me what editing/photoshopping/graffiti/whatever you can do to the Mona Lisa? Good or bad or fun or crazy...I want to see what you'd do if you were let loose with her and your painting/editing tools of choice!

WHERE IS IT?????
How long until I stop feeling so sleepy?
Have any of you ever had to give up coffee/caffeine?
So do you have to be an English major to be at least proficient in your own language, given that language is English? Really?
I don't necessarily mean the occasional slip. I am talking about full-on stupid, such as not being capable of forming complete sentences, use of net-speak, or inability to use paragraphs.
i really want that cut, but i want more pictures of different styles and lengths. i would really appreciate it!
Is it TGIF for you or just another day?
Wendy's,Mickey D's or Taco Bell?
I've never had a flu shot, and I am dubious about how effective they are and whether they do us any actual good....is this totally ignorant? Should I go line up with my coworkers and get one?
Edited: On another note, have anything coming up this month that you're absolutely looking forward to?
( Collapse )
2. Any ideas for where I could get a sound file (so, not youtube) of Kristen Chenoweth singing Birdhouse in Your Soul from Pushing Daisies?
3. If you are watching Survivor, which person do you hate the most right now?
4. Are you excited for the Amazing Race premier?
We're thinking of creating this in our building pumpkin carving contest. It looks pretty straightforward, but there's one thing I don't understand. How did they make the neck/gourd stand up like that? The creators of the E.T. managed to run the gourd up through a hole in the neck of the torso pumpkin and balanced a third pumpkin on top of it, but what keeps the gourd from collapsing into the base of the torso pumpkin? Hollowed out pumpkins aren't very sturdy so I don't think they split the gourd in half and rested it on top, and in the picture, the gourd definitely looks like it's coming up through the torso pumpkin.
How do you think they did it?
1. If you were innocent but got the death penalty, what would be your last meal?
2. Would it change if you were actually guilty?
2. WHERE WERE YOU?
3. ANY PANTS SPLITTING HORROR STORIES?
4. I KNOW I'M SUPPOSED TO OFFENDED WHEN MEN I WORK WITH CALL ME 'BABE' OR 'HONEY', BUT I'M NOT. DOES THIS MAKE ME A BAD FEMINIST?
5. WHAT ARE YOU UP TO TODAY?
It looked like ( Collapse )
Does anyone have it? I didnt save it and now I cant find the post.
I can't decide if it'd be horrendous.
Should I say something? Or should I just sit back and laugh about it with other coworkers?
I should note, she is really annoying.
EDIT: If I do say something, what is a nice way to say it?
2- Should I be nice and go up to Toronto to help fix the computers at my old work? I'd probably get paid a little somethin' somethin', but it'll cost me about $70 for the round trip. :/
3- What do you think about media sources making typos? Do you ever notify them?
4- How many cameras do you own?
Where could my wallet be hiding?
It's from Hunter S. Thompson and it's something about living life and taking chances. Something like that. My Google powers are giving me nothing.
I found it through the help of a friend who located the newspaper.
"Who is the happier - he who has braved the storm and life and lived, or he who has stayed securely on the shore and merely existed?"
I tried turning the wheel while turning the key, but then I discovered the steering wheel is also locked and I can't free it even with a lot of force.
I googled and the only other thing it said to do was rock the entire car. That isn't possible though, since I'm by myself.
Anyone have any ideas? I have to be at work soon.
SO, I decided that I'm going to make a few mix cds for the kids of soothing but good music. It doesn't really have to be a kid song because it's really just for the beat & the soothing noises. I can't have anything that would really wake them up or keep them to engaged so they don't fall asleep. I think I'm going to mainly go towards folk, jazz, reggae, etc.
What songs should I put on the nap time mix?
What songs should I put on a play time mix? Energetic, fun, danceable [for children] songs with no curses.
How many cases have turned up in your area?
Is it freaking you out?
EDITED TO ADD: OK, it's on now. I wanted to load
How do you find out about new music artists?
Do you have a music artist you just canNOT stand, no matter what?
Do you have a music artist that you listen to all the time right now? Who is it?
What's on your mind now?
Let's say you own a house, and have a creepy, elderly, loner of a neighbor who lives by himself and lives in the house immediately adjacent to yours. One day, he knocks on your door and tells you a few things. You had sex with your SO that week, and he was outside your window, taping it. He has it on a dvd, which he has locked away in a PO box. He filmed you because he needs help and he had to coerce you. See, there's a body he needs to have moved and he's too old to move it himself, and if you help, it'll take place between your two properties and there's no need to fear being seen by any other neighbors when the body's being moved. In exchange for your help, he'll give the tape to you, and destroy all of his camera equipment so he can't do it again. If you don't help, he'll make copies of the sex tape and give them to every neighbor on your block, your parents and all your coworkers (he knows about your parents and your job). What do you do?
Pro: I really want/need a new "more professional" purse. I'm starting my student teaching in January.
con: I'm a poor college student.
(I have already read Marley and Me and loved it!)
What, in your opinion, is the best brand of dog food? What about cat food?
Do you think that cats prefer to be by themselves or have another cat companion?
does she want me to go in there and have hot girl on girl action in the shower with her or what?!
I'm feelin kinda creeped out....
my cousin is throwing a Pumpkin Party with some of her friends (i only know like two of them) at her apartment. its in 7 hours and i am like near tears because im so nervous about it.
would it be bad to just...not go and just go to my dorm house's pumpkin party instead, where my nice, familiar dorm room is only a few steps away?
or should i just suck it up and go to the damned party?
i needs me some courages.
If your kid was on a reality TV show and you saw them acting like a complete brat, would you blame yourself?
2. Are you gonna keep your pumpkin icon into November?
3. What do you think of people who leave Christmas lights up after Christmas/New Years?
Which is a better Band Name?
*Yesterday while grocery shopping I saw a woman pushing her pug around in a shopping cart. i was kind of grosed out.*
Mine: "Mr. Brightside" by the Killers -reminds me of my mistake in a past relationship.
"Ready to Fall" by Rise Against -it brings out all of my anger.
"Roxanne" from Moulin Rouge -Again, bad history with relationship mistakes.
-My head hurts really really bad from overstressing. You got anything to allieviate it?
2. I have several movies on my DVR but I'm not sure what to watch first. Here's what I have: Blood Diamond, Capote, Chronicles of Narnia, Dazed & Confused, Failure to Launch, Fun with Dick & Jane, Idlewild, Lorenzo's Oil, Talladega Nights, The Break-Up, The Da Vinci Code, The Dukes of Hazzard, The Longest Yard, The Pursuit of Happyness, and The Queen.
I haven't seen any of these yet, so please be nice and don't spoil them!
2) How much disk space can you use on Sendspace? I can't find it in the FAQ.
So, who's seeing Rocky Horror sometime this weekend? WHO'S EXCITED? I SURE AM! If you have dressed up like one of the characters, post pics plz?
Totally unrelated: I'm going to my cousin's wedding in about a month, and am looking for ideas for a small/inexpensive gift that still is cute. As of right now I'm planning on getting her some of these teas but other suggestions would be handy.
I would like to know any movies that deal with 2 people in love, separated/waiting for each other. Classic movies, new in theatre movies, anything. They can be sort of fantasy/sci-fi-ish, like The Lake House or something more realistic, like one of them is in the military or sometime like that.
Any sort of movie where two people are in love or soul mates or something cheesy like that, and they are separated from each other by time or distance or a magic spell or whatever, and they have to wait for each other to be together again.
It can have a happy ending or a sad ending.
Do you know of a movie for me?
Where do you go and what do you do with your camera?
What would be your reaction?
Hint: No I am not planning suicide.
a) Do you reuse your towels or wash them after each use? Why or not not?
b) Do you wipe your wet ass crack out with it?
2) Do you have any nail painting advice for me? I have short nails and awful cuticles, I can't afford to get them professionally done, but I want to have red nails and toe nails for my friend's party tomorrow. (Remember my foot post from yesterday? :D)
3) Tell me three truths and a lie about yourself. What was the lie?
- Nothing slutty (this is a youth group costume party, and, while we're not all prudes, it shouldn't be that revealing. Plus, I'm probably too fat to pull off anything slut-like)
- Nothing too bulky or hard to walk around in, as I'll be spending a lot of time in the costume.
- I don't have much time to do an uber-ambitious DIY costume, because the party is on Sunday, but if it's an easy idea, I'll go for it.
I could just cop-out and be a witch, because I probably have an old witch hat from a while ago, but I don't want to do that.
If not, is it because you think it's inherently fugs or because it's just not your style?
If your friend who was studying in Copenhagen and actually bought it there gave it to you would that make it have more significance for you?
I gave one of these to my friend last year and she didn't seem to like it. I was planning on buying them as gifts for people if I ever went back but that made me think twice.
Edit: I don't celebrate Christmas so I'm not a very good judge of such things
So my question is, who has to go to the bathroom?
Tragic? or Darwinism at its finest?
does anyone want to keep me company this weekend via aim?
I'm going over to a friend's house for a Halloween party tonight and I don't know what to bring. I had a dinner party about a month ago and my friend came and brought me flowers. I don't think flowers are really appropriate for a Halloween party, though. What should I bring? (She's got the snacks covered - I asked)
You've met someone who you get along with very well. They are nice, cute, have a wonderful sense of humor, like most of the same music you do, and are all around a great person. You like said person, and have been flirting with them for the past few weeks (and said person has indeed flirted back) and you are considering asking this person out.
However, you're the sort of person who doesn't do drugs, though you really don't have anything against drugs; they're just not for you. And the person that you're considering asking out freely admits to doing mushrooms and weed.
Would you still ask them out? Do you think if a relationship eventually started between you and this person, the drugs, over time, might start to become a problem because you share such different views on drug use?
What should we do?
And yes I realise you don't know what there is to do here, so suggest stuff and I'll see if we have it.
do you fight dirty?
do you say "shut up"?
do you cuss?
do you cry?
do you always know it will be ok?
do you not fight much at all?
I thought the annual Halloween party that we usually attend was not happening this year, but it turns out it is, and we want to go. The glitch is that I need help figuring out a costume.
They always have a theme, and this year's is simply "Villains". So, who do I go as, and what will I need? - nothing too complicated, please! It's tomorrow evening, so I only have tonight and tomorrow to put it together.
There is a used bookstore here where a few cats, two Boston terriers and what looks to be some kind of lab mix stay all the time. I often go there just to see the animals.
1) How would you know if someone cheated on you in a relationship?
2) Have you ever caught the person cheating on you?
3) How can you tell if that person is just really busy and not cheating?
4) How do you break up with someone who cheated on you (if you did plan to break up afterwards)?
My teenage students seem to think that "where as though" is an expression, and one that makes them sound smart.
They use it both where they should use "whereas" or "wherein:"
Romeo is a Montague, where as though Juilet is a Capulet.
Juliet devises a plan where as though she will take the poison to fake her own death.
I can't figure out where this came from.
1. Are you a teenager, and if so, do you use this expression? Do you think it is a legitimate expression?
2. Do you know teenagers who use this expression?
3. Do you think it is an age thing, a regional thing, or a race thing? (I have only ever taught black teenagers in Baltimore, so I don't know if other teenagers are going around saying this, too.)
Every so often my computer won't connect to the internet and I get a window that says "Local area connection: a network cable is unplugged." it will switch between that and "speed 100 Mbps acquiring network address" over and over.
I've tried replugging all the cables, restarting, using a different ethernet cable. It's not the router because another computer is using the same router just fine.
AVG turned up nothing.
I did notice that when I plug in the ethernet cable, the light in the plug doesn't constantly glow- it kind of flickers. Does that mean the port itself is bad and I need a new one?
If so, how easy would it be to replace with a step-by-step guide or something talking me through it?
2) Have you ever taken a dump in an RV bathroom?
3) Have you ever taken a dump in the woods?
4) Have you ever been dumped?
HOWEVER, i feel compelled to ask for a little advice...
if one were to dress entirely in Hot Pink, what could she claim to be dressing as?
Which was your favorite song from the movie, and which do you think was best up to Beatles fan standards? =]
Did anyone else pick up on the little symbolisms?
Should FEMA be done away with completely? What do you propose should take its place?
I think they will be reprimanded.
Recent disasters have shown FEMA to be pretty much inept and possibly corrupt. But I really don't know what would be the best solution. Bureaucracy is really hard to overcome.
It's the birthday of your ex, ex best friend, a friend you're no longer talking to, etc.
Do you tell them Happy Birthday?
Get them a present?
I so hope you can help me with my lame questions, that's been bothering me for years.
When I was in 7th grade history I read this paper about an young Native American girl who was taken hostage by a rival tribe. She was carried across some barren tundra by a member of said rival tribe, for the entirety of the walk. She grew up in the tribe that took her hostage and later married the man who had carried her the whole way. Does anyone know who this is? Or know this story at all?
Do you have any awesome piercings? Pics?
How soon does a woman start feeling morning sickness?
How soon will a pregnancy test show accurate results?
I'm very happy for her, but at the same time I'm pretty sad because I'll be losing my best friend.
I mean, it's not like she's moving to a different town or state, but to a different country. Across an ocean.
I may not be able to see her for a long time, and only talk to her online.
Do you have a friend from your past that you've drifted away from that you still think about?
Do you still talk to your best friend from school [high school or college]?
Does anyone know the song that is playing in the background while Alex is behind curtain 3 kissing Ava?
If so, What is the name of it and who is singing it?
Can you post the lyrics or a link to the lyrics?
2) Let's say you go to a party and drink spiked punch. You didn't know it was spiked beforehand. Are you at fault legally? (Note:
3) I painted my finger and toe nails "Honeymoon Red". R THEY PRITTY?!!?1
Also, do you ever write stuff in bathroom stalls? What do you write?
whats the most romantic surpise you ever received or given?
whats the most romantic gift you ever received or given?
A ) my bf would be mad that I went to some other guys' party
B) it's raining really hard outside and I'm afraid to drive in it for a half hour
and C) I can't find anyone to go with me, and going to a party with other guys without my boyfriend might be somewhat of a bad idea...?
Do I go or do I stay home to be completely bored and alone TQC?
-stepped in glass three times
-gotten glass stuck in my hand
-lost my cellphone twice (once for an entire day)
-lost my hairbrush four times
-put an injured hand in detergent not once, not twice but thrice
-slipped on an excess amount of soap while cleaning, causing a gigantic bruise on my thigh
-dropped open-faced sandwiches that took me forever to make. Of course, they landed face down
-failed to make pancakes. I am always excellent at making pancakes, this time they all ended up scrambled pancakes.
On top of that I've been dealing with migraines since Monday.
So, tell me, am I cursed? Or being punished? Or is life trying to tell me something?
Does anyone else ever have weeks like this?
Does anyone know why?
I'm in my final year at school in Australia, Year 12, HSC year. And our Advanced English "Area Of Study" is "The Physical Journey". Therefore I have an assessment based around this in which I need to think of one film that is based around a physical journey (that results in some kind of emotional/spiritual new awareness or something else reflective/deep like that) and one song that's lyrics revolve around some kind of physical journey. It's better if it has obstacles along the wayyyy. I've come up with a few but I'm trying to pick the best one to apply some sweet skills to...
So any ideas would be very very very appreciated. Like, times a million.
Thankyouuuu in advance.
I WANT A BLUE WHALE CAUSE THEY ARE HUGE OR A TIGER CAUSE THEY ARE AWESOME.
I think she is pretty cool and cute.
Just a little crazy, but that can be helped.
Am I the only one?
Because most of the people I talk to laugh at me when I say that ......
Why is Guild Wars loading so very very slowly for me? I started the game, went downstairs, made my dinner, finished it, and came back upstairs. the game was at about 31% :(
Is my internet clogged? Should I get the plunger? Everything else is loading almost instantly, but the game is loading so slow.

i want to open the windows and let everything air out tomo, as it'll be sunny and kind of autumn-y out, but i'm worried about spiders and such. What's my best method of getting rid of them that will involve minimal contact?
when you do laundry, do you just toss it all in for the most part, and wash them all on the same cycle? if i were to do this, would there be any harm in running pretty much everything on a permanent press cycle, and just drying it? [by everything, i mean jeans, tshirts, dress pants, and sweat pants]
i have a chest of drawers with five drawers, and a dresser with two small drawers, four larger drawers, and another drawer. How would you organize them?

What is the scariest thing you've heard recently?
2. Have you ever done an internship/student teaching/something like that and had a PT job at the same time? Did it kill you? (I've done the school 5 days a week plus working thing and I was fine)
3. Do you have any allergies? What are they?
4. Why hasn't my friend called me even though she said she would?
should i be a jerk and bang on the ceiling? would they even get what i meant if i did? should i wake my husband up to have him yell at them? should i just call the cops?
i cannot set them on fire, as they are right above me so i would also be on fire if i did that.
Yes. I'm wearing the bottom of my bathing suit.
Do you have any relatives that you love, but can't stand for more than about a day and a half?
Just my maternal grandma. She's absolutely batty.
Renaissance vs. Cartel/Copeland
If I go to the Ren Faire, it'll make up to my grandma for not going to her place for thanksgiving, b/c my 2 friends and I will be crashing there Friday night (she loves having more ppl to feed...she'd be thrilled that we were there). Not to mention all the awesome of a Renaissance Faire. It'll cost maybe $30 for everything, definitely not more. Also, it's about a 3hr trip each way (I'm not driving, a friend is).
I like Cartel and Copeland a lot, but probably not more than a Ren Faire. They're performing at my school, though, so I get free tickets, and it's within walking distance.
Which would you choose: Renaissance Faire or a live concert of Cartel w/ guest artist Copeland?
I have to get at least a 21. Preferably higher so I won't be considered the stupid member of my family.
Last time I took it, I didn't study, sleep, was really hung over, and only a sophomore... I bombed it with a 20.
This time I'm not going to be hung over, I intend to sleep, I'm taking precal, and I studied.. kind of.
Do you have any tips/advice/words of encouragement? Please?
I do not test well. At all.
Right now I'm trying not to have a nervous breakdown.
1. Do you have it set so people can text you from your user profile?
2. I do, would you ever text me? (You can, I'm nice, I promise)
3. Do you have unlimited text messaging? (Yes)
Thanks for all the lovely texts! I ended up getting 23 :)
What's your favorite Hall & Oates song?
Is there a type of friend you'd remove from that list? (Clearly #19 for most of you). Is there a kind you'd add?
2) Why do women remove hair from their bodies anyway? (I'm not looking for answers like "it feels nice". If that were the only reason, more men would remove their hair too.)
3) Have any interesting hair removal stories for me?
The station I listen to has a face-off between a couple of songs which they have dubbed "The Cock Fight."
1) a pimp medallion that says "BIG TIME CASH"
3) a pink Lolita top
4) anything else you'd have around the dorm/house
