I have about a half dozen bottles of pink and blue hair dye in my room. But if I have funky colored hair finding a job will be even harder. But pink. Are there places that would hire me even with pink hair? How about especially with pink hair?
What song makes you cry? What song makes you laugh?
What's a totally-awesome-everyone-has-to-see-it movie?
I checked my recycling bin but nothing's there.
What about on a camera card? If it's deleted off there is it gone?
Also, are you going out into the big bad world on Black Friday?
2. If your soul mate, whom you've been with for years, had their brain transplanted in a rheesus monkey, and asked for pleasure, would you give them a handjob?
3. What if they were in a dog body and asked for intercourse (assuming everything would fit)?
4. IS IT BESTIALITY TO FUCK A HUMAN BRAIN IN AN ANIMAL BODY AND VICE VERSA?
Everyone at the table looked at me like WTF and said "But you'll kill the bacteria"
That's the WHOLE POINT of heat fixing, to kill the bacteria. So, since I can't find my old lab paper, do you face the specimin toward the heat or away? Does it matter, since you actually want to kill the bacteria? Are my lab partners smoking crack without me again?
I downloaded a program called gimp because it was recommended to me as a good, free art program. From what I can see it is, however every time I try to actually draw with the mouse, that is when I click and drag it along, the program shuts down completely without any kind of warning or message.
What am I doing wrong?
Should I have just bought a PC instead?
Do you have any recommendations for art/graphics programs?
My bf's mom has air vouchers for us to go anywhere for just a penny a mile.
Any ideas on where we should go? It could be anywhere in the world.
Do you know if there's any good tour deals available anywhere?
Anyplace people should go once in their life?
We're still in college so we'd like the place to be affordable and feasible to travel during school breaks. :)
Are any of your friends so amazing it makes you jealous?
Are you more than just a pretty face?
What's your favorite board game?
Whether or not you are participating, when is the last time you cried?
....overslept with disastrous results?
like, a decent quality metal one, but not like a super nice $3000 one from tiffany's (i wish), but one i can find in my area without ordering online, preferably.
if it means anything, i live in rhode island, and we pretty much have all the typical department stores (target, walmart, kmart, etc). do they sell them at department stores or in malls maybe?
We need a new sink, but I'm not sure we could get it installed by Thanksgiving, which is when a properly working kitchen could come in handy. :\
When should they come down?
Erin passed out in the parking lot and now she has meningitis!? WTF is going on? I'm very confused right now.
snow patrol - "make this go on forever". the way the song builds up is really powerful, & the lyrics hit really close to some situations I have been in that ended up hurting me.
Do native chopstick users find it as difficult to learn eating with a knife and fork as some silverware users find learning to eat with chopsticks?

Do you like ice cream with bits of things in it? How about milkshakes with straw-clogging candy?
What's the best OTC allergy medicine for your money?
Did/do your parents tend a photo collage of you showing each year's school picture? I know you know what I mean.
2)what are your views on scones?
eta: my dad says the most effective way to deal with headaches is to wait for them to go away. I say he's full of bull. Who is right?
How many hours do you normally sleep?
What is a good price for a pair?
I need some new boots. Ones that will keep my little toes warm in the snow. Any suggestions? :(
2) Do you have any student loans?
3) Do you have a car loan?
4) What's your plan to get out of debt?
5) Do you think you will ever get out of debt?
6) If so, when?
I've read lots of reviews online about both, but I am having trouble finding information on actual customer reviews for the Rabbit and how its reliability rates (I know in the past it hasn't been as good, but I've also heard the newer models are better than the old ones due to some changes).
Do you own a Rabbit (or any VW) or know someone that does (preferably a more recent model, 2006-2008)?
How reliable is the car? I mean, has it broken down a lot? Do you have to service it a lot? What's the mileage on the car?
If you (or the someone you know) has had issues with the car, what were those issues specifically?
If you own a VW, why did you pick the VW over other car brands?
I had a dream that verygwen and I were rooming together to be in a beauty pageant together. Whut. And her husband and boyfriend both showed up. And I couldn't find stockings anywhere and the only pair I had had holes in them. WHAT THE HELL.
Do you like the song "Mmm Mmm Mmm" by the Crash Test Dummies?
Here's a link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-v8dd1802U
2. Oh, and now for some getting-it-off-my-chest TQC lameness. My mom is celebrating her birthday tomorrow out to dinner with herself, me, my brother, and his girlfriend. My usually-attentive-&-sensitive boyfriend was invited, but decided he would rather watch the Lions game or play football with his friends. At first I played it like I was cool with it, but was kind of upset at him for that.
The icing on the cake was last night when he couldn't decide what he should do for the Michigan-OSU game. I told him to make up his mind so I could at least make plans with other friends so I could take advantage of the gameday festivities. It seemed as though he was set on staying home. He ended up changing his mind last minute this morning to go to the game (at $150 a ticket, way too expensive for me). That leaves me alone for the day, because all my friends have already gone off for their plans.
For some reason, this made me even more aggravated about him ditching my family for football tomorrow.
2a. Am I justified in being mad about either one?
2b. He now wants to go to the dinner tomorrow because he knows I'm upset. But I think that ruins the priniciple of it if he was willing to ditch it in the first place. Should I let him come? Even better with the moral issue aside, what would YOU do?
Agh. I feel so stupid for posting a tl;dr on TQC. Feel free to tell me you've felt this way before at least, too.
edit!: ie: if you don't have to be dependent on your SO for emotional, financial, whatever support, do you think it has a negative impact on your relationship?
I'll be checking out the V & A, British Museum and Natural History museum in London, and the only museum I'm determined to get to in Tokyo is the Studio Ghibli one.
Also, what will the weather be like?
1) What are some good reliable computer companies that let you customize your machine? (I know most of them, I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything)
2) Is Vista as bad as I've heard? Like I said, we've been stuck with shitty ass ME for ages now, I don't want to screw us over again.
3) If Vista is as bad as everyone says, how can I downgrade to XP? I have it on my laptop and I have all of the startup disks that came with it, but will I be able to use those on a new desktop? I don't want to try to use them and get seriously screwed over somehow.
4) What features do you think are necessary for you to have on your computer?
5) How much do computer companies overcharge you for things like Virus Protection if you buy it through them?
6) What advice do you have to give me for computer shopping?
note I know that there are probably going to be many of you who will tell me to buy Macs, but my mother is barely proficient in Windows and if I were to change systems on her she'd get flustered and confused. It's easier to buy the PC that she knows.
I'm going to an art show today :) My SO says I have to dress nice-ish, but didn't really specify what that he meant by that. Any suggestions?
How do I know if I should use purple or blue toner in my hair? I bleached it last night and it looks really brassy :( Should I bleach it again before putting in toner?
How do you motivate yourself to clean?
Can a man with an uncircumsized penis masturbate? Or be "jacked off"?
(ETA: Well, does it have any restrictions? (Lol.) Something you do different? Help me out here, totally clueless! The guy I'm dating isn't circumsized, and I don't know if anything is going to be different.)
I'm obviously not too familiar with them. Someone recently said something like that, and I'd never heard it before.
Would you feel weird about kissing/dating a person with the same name as your parent?
2. When you took your road test, did you pass on the first try?
3. How old were you when you got your permit?
4. Was Jesus a Zombie? (think about it. He died, came back to life. That sorta screams zombie to me)
2) What is the biggest rivalry, save for maybe "Good vs Evil," in the history of the world?
3) Michael Jackson (the 80s version) or Prince?
A guy asks a girl to be his girlfriend. The girl says that she's not planning on having a boyfriend anytime soon because she's still trying to find herself, and that she doesn't want to be involved with anyone else because she wants to truly love and accept herself before loving another person romantically. Another reason is because she wants to dedicate a lot of her time to studying because she needs to get a really high GPA in her undergrad if she wants to go to med school. She claims that if she has a boyfriend, she would be too distracted, and want to hang out with him too much. Therefore, she doesn't plan on having a boyfriend within 2-4 years.
As a guy, what would you think if you asked a girl out and she said that?
As a girl, what would you think of the girl?
Care to share?
I'm seriously considering becoming a foster mom when my fiance and I buy a house. And I'll want to adopt out of the foster system...
If you're a white person in hip hop who grew up in a middle to upper middle class neighborhood, should your motto be something like: "I got no 'hood up in here so I put it in gear"?
If so, how would you go about doing so?
Is it unfair to drag it out just because you feel like you should try to make it work for security sake even though part of you doesn't really want to?
Yes. I am horrible at relationships I know this already.
On a quasi related note, is there any particular song that you find particularly fitting to your romantic situation at present?
2. I spilled a drink on my keyboard last night. I shook it out and dried it to the best of my ability, but my keys are sticky. Clearly my keyboard is still perfectly functional, minus the whole sticky key bit. How do I unstickify it? ( Collapse )
3. Please make a list of random things you dislike.
~Bathrooms with fans where you can't turn the fan off. My bathroom is like that and I hate it.
~Sticky keyboards =P
~The fact that the clocks at work are 8 minutes fast and make me look later than I am.
~Being bored on Saturday afternoon
Why is the change oil light on in my car? I shouldn't have to change it for another 2,000 miles. My dad checked it and he said it's not low and seems fine. Should I just get it changed anyway? My car isn't making any noises and it's working fine.
What do you think about aprons? I just bought a really cute one from Anthropologie because I'm a messy cook but my friends think I'm weird for it.
What is more uncomfortable?
Have you started your holiday shopping yet?
Do you have a paid LJ account?
If yes, Do you hate paying for LJ but continue to do so because you neeeeed the features that come with a paid account?
If you NEEEEED a feature that you can only get with a paid account, which feature is it?
Will you tell me in the comments how much you really LOVE taking polls!?
Uh...turns out...I'm only getting paid $100....which makes it 7.50 per tape. The length of the tapes vary. Even the short ones can take 4 hours to complete because of their quality..
Should I go ahead and do it since I told them I would? Or should I tell them to take the tapes and shove 'em since they kind of fibbed on how much they were going to be paying me?
I landed the internship at the law firm. Every worker has a dual screen computer. Has anyone used the dual screen set up? How difficult is it? I've never worked with it before.
how can I stop the mild ache, and dissuade myself from poking it?
If presented with the same option, what would you do? Risk losing the friend for seeing where the love goes? Or stay safely at the friend level?
If you've had this happen to you before, what did you choose? Are you happy with that choice?
A) really ugly
B) pretty stupid
( Collapse )
(assume you will not get arrested for assault or anything untoward)
2. If so, do you stick to a theme or just throw stuff together? Do you choose your songs in advance or as you go?
3. What is the tracklist for your favourite mixtape/CD? What, if any, was the occasion?
EDIT: Or playlists, for people who aren't stuck in a timewarp. ;)
What do you drink?
2. Is it the man or the woman that 'causes' identical twins? What makes it split?
3. Do you have any examples of petitions working?
Say you know someone who does graffiti and you really admired their work. Would you ever let them put graffiti artwork on your house?
I checked Amazon, but it's possible I didn't look hard enough.
Can anyone help a sister out?
If I move to a non-basement apartment and attempt to play DDR like I do now, how annoying would that be to the people who live below me?
for me, it's Sufjan Stevens - The Predatory Wasp Of The Palisades Is Out To Get Us!
If prostitution was legalized and regulated and whatnot, do you think their would be less instances of rape?
anyone own a gazelle glider or something similar?
I live in an appartment and someone lives below me so I cant get a treadmill because it would make to much noise but I'm wondering if a gazelle would make noise?
On the return flight, I announce way before we board that no matter what, I am not going to switch seats with anyone, and will take my assigned seat. I explain that this is because I am not going to go 11 hours without eating again. I make this very clear and repeat it a few times. When we board the plane, of course, this girl insists that I move because she has flight anxiety and she must sit *between* two specific guys on our trip. She has already made one guy who wasn't even if our tour group move to a different seat to sit next to one of the guys, but she tells me I *must* move because she *must* sit next to this second guy. I tell her I'm not going to move and to figure it out herself. I don't move. I get my vegetarian meal. I am happy.
So, was I being a bitch for not switching seats or was I in the right to insist I keep my assigned seat so I could EAT?
Ha ha, if you respond with tl; dr a seven-year curse will befall you.
Feel free to answer other people's past questions.
2. Have you ever screamed really loud at the Thanksgiving Dinner table ?
3. How do you backup your hard drive ?
EDIT: If it helps, I'm asking because I'll be in California for a week in December and I have the option to spend one of my days in one of those two places, and I've never been to either location so I have no idea they're like. Thanks for your input! :)
-What movies make you cry? I always cry in Titanic. It's the scene where the lower class woman puts her kids to sleep when she knows they have no hope that always gets me. Plus how many. many other people died. Also, I cry when Beth dies in Little Women, and at the end of The Whole Wide World. Theres probably others as I am a big crier, but that's whats in my mind now. (Edit: Forrest Gump too, when his mom and then Jenny die)
-Are there any movies that actually scare you? The Ring got to me the first time i watched it. I kept the lights on that night. and The Stand and Armegeddon always give me the chills too because I am scared of germ warfare and with Armegeddon even though I didn't like the movie much, it makes me think about how if an asteroid were headed directly at us, we'd pretty much be screwed.
-Whats for dinner tonight? I think I may order a pita from pita pit.
EDIT: In Titanic? Why didn't they make the door thing Rose is on smaller? I mean their story was to have Jack die....but why make the door Rose is on big enough for two people? Should've made it smaller so we wouldn't be like "Why weren't they both on the door?"
shoes, all the way
i started the argument and it's been three weeks. the opposing party's birthday is the 25th of this month, so i've got to come up with something good to make it up to them...
So, TQC: What should I bring to the party?
Unrelated question: On average, how many miles (or kilometers) do you drive on an average day?
Do you like pesto?
Green apples or red apples?
Do you like salmon?
If yes to #3, which way do you like it best?
(Yes I did tried Google) (Who doesn't now anyway..) but I coudn't find anything on her.. unless that she participated in a Jones Ad and that's it.. So I thought maybe someone would know..
What should I make for dinner?
2- What is the best thing about your workplace/school/whatever? (Easy access to McDonald's... I'm a whore for their sweet tea!)
3- When's the last time you burned yourself? (Yesterday I burned my tongue on some tea at Starbucks D:)
4- How do your toes feel? :) (FROZEN!)
10 am. I need to start getting up earlier. Sleeping in so much makes me depressed.
Now that I know, I want to help her. I've talked her into going for therapy, but she can't keep living in that mess. I'd like to hire someone to clean it, but I can't find a cleaning place that will deal with animal waste and bugs. Is there a specific term that I need to look for? I even looked at disaster cleanup but to no avail.
What should I do? I'll clean it myself if it comes to that, but--selfishly, perhaps--I'd rather pay to have it done.
2) What is your favourite song this week?
3) What's the funniest/most disgusting thing you have seen done with food?
1)Firefox, StumbleUpon, CloneDVD, OpenOffice
2)Rehab - Amy Winehouse
3)One time my ex's dad didn't realise the snacks on the table were peas coated in wasabi and he took a whole handful and ate them at once. It was hilarious :)
grrr, just got the class canceled email from tuesday today. a few minutes ago.
eta: are some people doomed to be single for life?
2. In a group convo, are you one of those that people listen to, or one of those that speaks but have no one listen?
(I'm the latter, sometimes it's really very sad!)
My ears won't pop. I've done everything I can think of to make them pop. HOW DO I FIX THIS?
Would a memory foam topper be worth the price as compared to your typical egg-crate foam? I'm considering buying a 2 inch memory foam topper for my bed. I can't afford a new bed right now and I need more comfort!
ETA: For reference a memory foam topper would cost at least $60, usually more. The usual egg-crate cheapos cost about $15 for a full size bed. I have one of those and it's just not enough right now.
However, I'd also like to add that I just found something I'm very interested in... here's the link in case anyone else might be interested as well:
A marriage of egg crate AND memory foam!
What do you want to promote in TQC? It can be a link, a meme, some insignificant achievement you did, your MENSA membership, your atypical gender, whatever.
(I have nothing to promote myself; I'm just bored enough to be interested in what other people have got.)
How about this planet?
- I'm doing an art challenge with a friend where femininity is the theme and I'm torn between going for the traditional idea of feminity (cute, slender, innocent and pure little girl) or a more modern, strong, independent and headstrong woman. I have good ideas for both, but I'm not sure which one to go with. Any ideas?
Serious and nom-serious welcome :D
EditThe dye is on...I can't wait to see how it turns out!
isn't there a wives tail about your palm itching??
ooo and what ever happened to Mikey and his crabbs???
The lady came back and took someone's order. Immediately after I said "Excuse me, I paid with a $20 but I only received change for a ten." She insisted I paid with a ten, and I said I was certain it was a 20 because that was all I'd had. If I wasn't 100% sure I wouldn't have said anything as I have a lot of trouble speaking up. Finally she gave me my $10, then went back in the kitchen. I'm almost certain the only reason she gave it to me was because there were also 2 police officers standing there.
1. What are the chances they did something terrible to my food?
2. Would you still eat the food?
3. Would you ever go back to that restaurant?
4. Would you have been embarrassed?
Is there anyway I can tell her that isn't going to make everything go to hell?
ETA: Er. I should have probably also mentioned that I'm 17, and she's 27.
Alternatively; why do you like the vag?
Or why do you like both?
What movie have you seen the most times?
How many times?
Model Name: MacBook
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
Memory: 1 GB
Chipset Model: GMA 950
I copied and pasted that and I'm not even sure what it all means. Would the game run smoothly on this machine?
2)What's a book that changed your life?
And if you feel like it, will you recommend me a book I should read? Books I like: Augusten Burroughs (all of his books), Girl Interrupted, The Virgin Suicides, Perks of being a Wallflower, The Call of the Wild, All Quiet on the Western Front. Basically memoirs or books about fucked up people and fucked up families. I also like books on World War Two.
Were you sad when you learned David Bloom died? I was. He was one of my favorite reporters, and I felt so sad for his wife and kids.
2. Do you have a piece of clothing that you wear out daily or almost daily, a "staple" clothing item? If so what is it?
3. What is the strangest relationship you have ever had & why (any relationship, not just romantic)?
4. What is something you regret?
Detailed or not detailed welcomed.
1. I don't have one yet. I like antique looking rings though.
2. A long black tank top that makes me look skinnier/taller.. Sort of. In winter it was my plain brown flat boots but they have since fallen apart.
3. All of my relationships are weird. The weirdest is probably with a friend who makes me feel like I am just an answering machine as they talk into me.
4. Missing a chance on love with my boyfriend at an earlier stage. Leaving high school early.
2. have you ever had spaghetti squash? is it good? what is it like in comparison to actual spaghetti? is it worth it for me to try making it? is it difficult to make?
How healthy would you say you are in general, and how does your lifestyle contribute to that?
my best friend, who she also knows.
We're all family friends, so it would be quite weird, even though I wouldn't complain if it were true....
However, TQC, do you think he's been telling her things which aren't true, in which case, does he want them to be true?
OR can she read minds and knows things we both think we know the other knows?
OR is she just highly misinformed?
.....oh, the difficulties of age+teen.
Can anyone suggest a more progressive denomination?
Have you ever broken off a relationship that wasn't healthy for you? EDIT: How many of you know what I'm talking about?
Also, are you working the dreaded Holiday Hours? I'm am and am exhausted. I work for Buy More, selling cameras. However I'm just glad I don't work for the Nerd Heard, that would suck around this time.
Do you like Coke with Lime?
How long did it take to get the pictures back?
Can you buy a picture CD?
I looked on the PictureMe website, but it wasn't exactly, uh, helpful. At all. But I did get a coupon. So I guess it was kinda helpful.
Also, I know Wal-Mart sucks, but for the moment, this is all we can afford.
Why does this keep happening and is there anyway to fix it?
What's the most ridiculous cold remedy you've ever heard of? Is it ridiculous and it WORKS, or ridiculous and obviously ineffective?
I spent almost the entire week working my ass off on homework. I spent all last night and tonight working on group projects and studying for tests. Am I a loser for staying in or just a good student? Maybe not good, I don't know. Responsible? I have a brain ache.
