So, TQC. My gorgeous coworker invited me to his Halloween party tomorrow. I don't have a costume, since I wasn't planning on doing anything (as usual). Anyone want to give me some ideas?

This is a silly question...

but I don't have a scale, so this is worth a shot. How much do you think a cd case that holds 128 cds would weigh if it was full (of cds)? I know I'm being a little redundant by adding the parenthesis, but I'm trying to be as specific as possible since I tend not to be.

Can anyone point me in the direction of Bible verses that discuss sexuality? (Specifically, female sexuality.) I need a few for a paper I'm writing.

edit: it's for a paper on the work of Mel Ramos, who is often viewed as a misogynist blah blah so I have to start at the basics to get to the bottom of a male's view of the female body etc. long story. need help. or coffee.

1. Do you think that all of John Williams' music "sounds the same" for every movie he does, or do you think he just have a distinct style of composing?  What is the difference?

2. Same question...for Danny Elfman. (?)

3. When you hear music by Williams, what movie do you think of?
I think Star Wars.

4. When you hear music by Elfman, what movie do you think of?
I think of Nightmare Before Christmas.

5. Do you like either composer?

6. What is your favorite movie score by each?

Ladies, you're dating some new guy, and on the second date, you're at a bar/restaurant, and you're both cutting loose, and your guy starts ordering girlie drinks. For himself. From the candy apple to strawberry dacquiri to the lemon drop, each drink in front of him is loaded with extra straws, fruit and the occassional umbrella. How much do you respect him now?

I have so much respect for him. Who cares what he drinks?

I kind of think less of him. A real man should be drinking drinks that aren't pink

parting message from the failboat...

Looking back, my last post to TQC made me sound like a bit of a homocidal maniac. I promise (with cherries on top) I'm not really going to murder him!  :D

So, questions:
1. Do you like cherries? If not, what can I put on my promises for you instead?
2. When was the last time you failed on the interwebz, if ever?
3. What are your plans for this weekend?
4. Do you like giving people money for their birthday if they've invited you to their party? One of my friends refuses to tell me what he wants, saying that he'd prefer money. I'll happily give money to him if that's what he wants, but normally giving people money when everyone else buys presents makes me feel a little cheap and tacky, as though I've put no effort in. What are your general opinions and anecdotes on this matter?

I've had this little bump of a scar on my lip from getting hit by a golf ball since I was a little kid . It wasn't noticeable or felt like much but now all of a sudden it's all calloused and stuff. I'm sad because I don't know what to blame. What should I blame for this happening? And what should I do to soften it up :(?

I'm out of the loop of what good movies are playing right now. What's good?

1. Are there any communities on LJ that have organizing and cleaning tips? My directory search is turning up dead communities and I don't know where to go for them.

2. What's your very best "odd" cleaning tip? Mine is if you've got a sticker on the wall (a frequent problem with kids) and it's not coming off without pulling the paint/wall paper, take a hairdryer and blow on it with medium heat to soften up the sticky, then gently remove. Use GOOGONE to get the remainder of the yuck off.

3. What do you do with clothes that have "sentimental" value that are wasting room in your closet? Stuff that people give you, but you can't throw out for whatever reason.

4. What music do you listen to to get into the cleaning mode?

What is the best beginner's knitting book?

I'm looking for something that's like knitting for complete imbeciles; knitting for dummies probably isn't dumb enough for me. I'm extremely bad at crafty stuff, and I've tried knitting before yet failed like Jeff Francis trying to throw a fastball. Ideally, I'd like something with lots of pictures. There are so many books out there that I don't know where to start, so thanks in advance!!!

Edit: I've found my answer. I'm starting out with knitting videos instead of a book. Thanks so much! Have a great Halloween!

If the cats get all over my stuff I end up having a pretty bad reaction, so I need my door closed to keep them out, but everyone will leave it open. My computer chair is a wreck because the cats are always scratching it and playing on it and spilled a can of coke on it last night.

Right now there's a party going on next door which I was invited to, but said no because I have shitloads of work to do. I've been doing working all day but now I can't hear myself think because the music is so loud. I have people banging on my door/calling me every half hour telling me to go round.

The party started 3 hours ago, but will probably last all night. It doesn't look like I'm going to be getting much more work done, but it's all due on Monday and I'm nowhere near done. If I go, I probably won't wake up until midday tomorrow so I'll only have the afternoon to complete it.

Should I try to block out the noise and crack down on my work, or should I go and be sociable? If I go, I need to be in costume, but I guess I could just wear black with black make-up and go as... death or something...

I would like to apologize in advance for the run-on sentence.

For some reason, whenever I see a magazine, newspaper, or book, with someone looking "away" from it (you know, it looks like they're looking at you when you hold it), I feel really creeped out and try to turn it over or cover it up. I don't actually feel like the person is looking at me, but I do it anyway. I also only do it when it's a person; I don't do it if the picture is of an animal.

What's up with that?

how did you choose your pet? not the species or breed, but your particular pet?

for instance, when you were looking for your animal friend, did the one you eventually pick do something cute to convince you? were they just the cutest/best looking of all the other animals? did they have a very obvious personality? or did it even matter? were they picked out as a gift for you by someone else?

So I'm 16, almost 17 and my boyfriend lives in another state. I visit him/he visits me every school holidays. Lately I have decided I should get a part time job. I need a job to pay for the plane tickets mainly. But I am wondering if it will even work. If I get a job and then they expect me to work during a the holidays and I am planning on visiting my boyfriend therefore I can't work for that week or two..are they going to fire me? Should I not even bother? Is my only option to take the chance and hope my future employer is super understanding and all for teenage romance? I can't not visit my boyfriend, but I can't keep going on without any money....What do you think is the best thing for me to do and/or expect?
