2) How should I decorate my walls, guys? My room is magnolia & seriously boring.
Why does my grandma have to be so god damn feely? I don't like being touched and every time she says anything to me she rubbing or poking my face and hair and shoulders and I get so worked up because I keep asking her to stop and she ignores me. It's driving me insane! Would it be bad if I smacked her hand when she keeps doing the touchy feely thing?
So I started reading this story at home tonight and by the second paragraph, I was already shaking my head. My friend can't write. It reads like a Mary-Sue fic. Punctuation has been thrown in handfuls at it and where it stuck, it got left. Capitals are something that happen in the middle of sentences.
I don't know what to do. The punctuation and so on isn't so bad - easily fixable with a few rearranges of sentences. But for my opinion? What do I say? Do I reply "Darling, I love you, you have many talents but writing isn't one?" or do I just do the grammar and punctuation etc and try and avoid giving an actual opinion?
The problem is, I see this girl every couple of days. I can't avoid her for long.
Tell me, combined genius of thequestionclub, what should I do?
Would it depend on the particular context? If so, which do you use when?
I've googled and seen both, sometimes both used in the same article, and am thoroughly confused.

I was using Hotmail; therefor, I've missed several days worth of replies to my comments. So, I've switched my email on file with LJ, but most of my comments are in various different communities, and I'd really REALLY like to find the missing messages.
Is there any way for me to find the replies to my comments that haven't been emailed to me?
As a side note, has anyone with an email through Care2 had problems receiving comments?
What should my MySpace profile song be?

2. what/who gets the creative juices flowing for you when you're in a creative slump? (can be anything: specific artist/author/musician/etc., place, thing, weather condition, material, emotion, event...anything. please share.)
my answer in the comments.
Once in a while when I take the key out, the ding noise continues. But I pop the key back in, take it out again, and it stops. Tonight after I took the key out the ding just continued. I messed with the headlights, the seatbelt, the heat, everything, but no matter what I did it just continued to ding.
I am sure that no one here is a mechanic, but if you have any suggestions as to 1, what it could be, 2, a solution to make it stop, or 3, just answer this- will the ding noise make my battery go dead? I would appreciate any help at all. I can't really wake my dad up to ask him what to do, it's 2 in the morning and he has work.
Am I going to wake up to a dead car?

My roommate has made the joke before that you should always break up with a girl (or whatever your gender of preference is) in order to see what they are really like. His reasoning is that when you put a person in a bad situation, their true colors often show. Do you agree with this? Why or why not?
Speaking of roommates, I'm moving soon, and my roommates are giving me quite a bit of attitude about it. What's the best way to get through the next month without ending up in jail, or just ending up being a complete bitch to them and making things even worse?

My co-worker messed up [again]. His stupidity has left me with nothing to do. (No, really. He neglected to let anyone know that he was out of ink and at best, more will not be arriving until mid-day tomorrow.) Should I:
A) Hit him upside the head and then go home?
B) Yell at him, hit him upside the head, and then go home?
C) Just go home?
If I stay, I'll just be staring out the window til 4:30. (It isn't quite 10 AM yet.) (Oh, and I wouldn't be losing pay - I'm essentially salaried.)

Besides cops, everone knows that one.
Have you ever noticed/has anyone else ever noticed and informed you that you do/say certain things when you're high?
That seems like it's not coherent.
When I got home this morning my roommate said that I cursed a lot more and said "man" all the time which now that I look at it is true I say those things a lot when I'm high.
Anything like that happen to you?>
Have you ever stolen anybody's food (after you were 16 or older)? Why? Did you realize that somebody else would want it? did you feel guilty?
How do I stop these jerks from stealing my sustenance (it is already clearly labeled)?

2. What is the best fake accent you've heard in a movie or on tv?
3. How about the worst?
A man from Africa comes to the US. He attends and completes high school and receives his diploma. (You can also add that the county from which he receives this diploma is known for is excellence in academics.) A few years later, the man is accused of child rape by more than two little girls and also accused of various other sexual offenses by others. The state has enough evidence to go to trial on one case and so proceeds accordingly. The defense attorney requests a translator for this man - his particular dialect is a little known one. The courts do not locate an official African (his particular dialect) to English translator and so the man is released from custody and the case is dismissed. Hours after this decision is handed down, journalists [interview those from the local area where the man lived and will be coming back to live and] find two people who speak beautiful English and also the dialect of the man just dismissed from child rape cases.
Do you have faith in the American justice system?
If you could sit and have dinner with this judge, what things would you want to say and ask?

a)Do you think it is weird?
b)Would you drink coffee with a straw?
You are one of my friends. We are both commuter students, and you have a job that requires you to drive long distances (and doesn't pay for your gas.) We bitch about the price of gas daily. Would you be insulted if I gave you a gas card/Visa giftcard for Christmas, rather than an actual object, so you could fill up on me? The card would have enough for two tankfuls of gas, at $3/gallon for the medium-quality stuff.
(No, public transportation isn't an option. Otherwise, I'd buy us both bus passes.)
2.) Does it piss you off when people hold these ignorant opinions, or do you adopt more of a "fuck it, if they're dumb enough to believe it, at least it'll keep them from coming here" attitude?
3.) Are there any negative stereotypes about your town/state/area that are 100% true?
What's the best wedding you've ever been too?
what's your favorite part of weddings?
2. Ever had a forum or comm feel like it's dying? Link? Did it bother you?
3. How can you fix the 'dying'/very slow feeling? If it's hard to get new members?
3.b Do you think if there were a comm where the active people concerned about their comms or forums dying would join and talk about how to keep it active, it would improve things? Would a comm like that be good? edit: and cos I'm weird like that, I just created a comm for that. If you'd like a link to it, just ask!
4. Do you draw? Is any of it on the internet? Can I see?
1. Have you been to New Orleans post-Katrina?
2. We're staying a street away from the French Quarter. It's not Mardi Gras or anything but will the French Quarter still be bustling and fun on the weekend?
3. Any suggestions on restaurants or places to see live music? Or sights that we MUST see while we're there? Anything you particularly loved?
4. Ever done a walking tour around the city? Worth it or not worth it?
We have a bunch of travel books and a running list of what we want to see while we're there, but I'd love people's personal experiences.
5. My mom thinks that we should do a bus tour of the areas that were hurt by Katrina. She think it would be interesting to see how badly the response was and what's going on in terms of rebuilding. I think that it might be kind of voyeuristic to go and take a tour of other people's tragedy...Thoughts? If you were going down would you go see it? I can't decide if it would be good to see or if people there would resent it..Does that make sense?
Any suggestions would be extremely helpful!
Thanks in advance.
Edit: I'm thinking about doing it about LOLcats - good idea?
Hideous and should never be worn or oddly cool?
Is there anything I can do?
Is our new house haunted?
I've been pondering a name change for a while. One came to me last night dreaming, and it stuck with me, rather unusual for my dreams/nighttime thoughts - what do you think of cometal_jacket - awful? great? something else? Is cometaljacket worse or better? Be honest - you won't hurt my feelings if you can't stand it.
If you don't like it, any other suggestions to offer up?
I added White Fang (mixture of cinnamon and peppermint schnapps) to my hot beverage last night - it was indescribably yummy!

Me again. This time I'm looking for any "powers" that you can think of. Things like the ones in the show Heroes, Charmed, ones that you've read or heard of from other places, even ones that you made up on your own.
I'm looking for things like clairvoyance, healing, telekinesis...
Anyone got any powers that they can share?
Thanks a bunch!
do you have a favorite book?
Speak, Cell, Twilight [the series too] are my favorite ones =] I also read a lot of Romance/Suspense but I don't remember the titles. I just know I like them lol.
We can't find the CD and I think my sister must've lost it, and since she isn't speaking to anyone in our niche of the family, getting a definite from her isn't even an option.
Sooo... Since my little backstory is over and done with, here's the actual question:
How do I get a replacement CD? I've checked the company support page and even tried Google-ing it, but I'm getting more and more desperate and it's not helping my searching skills.
The printer/scanner/copier in question is HP Photosmart 3200 All-in-One and it was bought at least three years ago at my local Costco.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
x-posted to other places.
What topics would be good to discuss? They can be medically related or not. Any advice on things to stay away from bringing up? FYI, I live in the US.
would you be willing to google your name and post the first picture that catches your eye?
what's the last thing you copy and pasted?
I finally got fed up when my fingertips literally started turning purple and turned it off, assuming that they just hadn't noticed and changed it since the weather turned.
They just came out and got cranky with ME because they were "burning up" and when I said I was cold, they did that typical thermostat-related-eye-roll that I run into all the time where people say, "But it's hot." Like I must be lying or a nutcase to disagree.
1. What temperature do you keep your house? Do you get in thermostat fights with a roommate/spouse/parent?
2. Are you usually cold or hot?
3. Would you rather be too cold or too hot?
4. When I finally build a bonfire at my desk, what should I use for kindling? I've got some newspapers lying around, but it feels like they'd burn up too fast...

A Captain and his Crew maintain a wooden sailing ship in a dock in Boston. They sail around quite a bit, so it takes a lot of wear and tear. The boat is called the TQC Awesome Express. Every couple of months, a few wooden planks on the hull of the Awesome boat have to be replaced. Captain shippo, in an effort to cut corners so he has more money for hookers and/or blow, dumps the wooden beams in an alleyway behind the local In n' Out burger. cottonmanifesto and thatbitchfiona, after tasty lunch at the burger shop come across these planks and decide to take them and build a boat so that they might cross the seven seas. Eventually, shippo replaces all the planks the TQC Awesome Express and tosses them all behind the Burger shop, where cotton & mlle pick them all up. They have thus created a boat made of precisely the same materials as the TQC Awesome Express, but they name it the TQC Most Excellent Sloop. Is the Awesome Express the same boat it was before its planks were replaced, or would you consider the Most Excellent Sloop to be the Awesome Express?

In the above situation, do you sort of go looking for them or check their personal journal, or usually shrug it off? If it varies, what is apt to make the difference? If they're on your f-list, how long you've seen them around, or something else?
Edit: Annnnd, if you were to rate LJ communities, how high on your list would TQC rate?
Some of you are too darn quick! ;)
however, we've just switched over from regular lightbulbs to those florescent ones, which put out more light with less watts.
