I haven't removed anyone from my list for simply falling out of contact, so it's still full of people I went to summer camp with. I've only ever blocked one person, because I was fifteen, he was twenty one, and kept sending my ascii porn and telling me he was imagining me naked.
what's the coolest thing you've discovered lately?
and/or what's something you wish existed?
with respect to...
How often do you wash your hair?
What do you use?
I'm sorry I was mean to my cat when I was in high school. It was sick and didn't mean to pee on my bed. I still feel bad for pushing it away and yelling at it. Poor kitty. :-(
1b. If not, are you a religion that doesn't fall under
1c. If you answer was yes to either of the above, what do you say when people ask about going to church or Christmas or anything else that is
2. How does it make you feel?
1a/1c. I'm Jewish and I find myself saying, over and over again "I'm Jewish" to these questions.
2. I really don't care, but it just gets repetitive.
Please offer an argument
I've decided to put myself in charge of making the dessert for my family since I won't be able to go go dinner with the whole big family thanks to working all day but I'd like to be apart of the celebration and so I'd like some ideas of what to make.
The place I work is a retail store; we sell clothes, makeup, all that stuff, and also food. No frozen food section, or anything like that; mostly just chips and pop, and some select canned goods that I suspect are probably a bit past their expiration dates anyway. Normally, we're not very busy - on a normal day, an hour on the register and I'll have rung up maybe twenty customers, if that.
Do you think the store will be busy on Thanksgiving, or basically empty? Should I bring a book to read?
2 What is it about them that you like?
3 People who are with someone : What attracted you to them in the first place? and stories of that first eyes across the room etc most welcome!
Is there, like, some easy way to make belly button rings? Hmm.
I'm asking because my friend and I need to pull a prank on the guy we currently work for. He always jokes about paying someone big cash to get a tattoo of his initials somewhere on their body and we're trying to get revenge for something he just pulled.
"Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town" - Pearl Jam
2) Anyone make a long commute to work/school?
mine takes 45mins - 1 1/2hr depending on traffic...about 50 miles one way
3) Money aside would you rather have a job with alot of involved thinking or hard labor?
I'd go with thought, but each has it's perks
I'm baffled. Why?
How do you get any privacy?
Were they randomly assigned?
Do you ever have sex with them in the room? [no i guess thats weird]
How do you feel about your roomie?
It's normal to share bathroom/kitchen/living room in college, but never bedroom... we'd go apeshit in England.
How much mess do you make?
Last book you couldn't/struggled to finish?
[i usually read everything, however i'm really battling with Luke Rhinehart- The Dice Man
its so.. ehhh..annoying.]
They're my mortal enemy. At least, the wild ones that infest my yard. I'm not sure why exactly, but something about watching anywhere from two to ten of them bolt as my headlights hit the yard every night when I come makes me fear that my home will soon be taken over.
Also, what is your favorite city in the USA? Mine is Boston, but I am biased because I live here and I love it.
If you use tampons: how srsly do you take the amount of time you leave a tampon in?
I ask because I met someone today who was paranoid about TSS and sets an alarm on her phone to go off every four hours because six hours between changing is apparently WAY TOO LONG.
And on the other hand, my mum puts one in and then sleeps in it for ~9 hours without a worry in the world.
Where do you stand, TQCettes?
(this is assuming the sourcing is all correct and accurate, from reliable sources such as .gov's, .org, or .edu's)
2. If you could go back to one point in time and slap yourself, would you do it? When? Why? Etc?
3. What was the most recent book that you started reading but never finished? Why?
Are they common where you live?
Do you plan on going or have you been to yours?
If you've been to one, where was it held and what was it like?
5 year reunions - omgtoosoon Y/N?
O Great Question Club, does anyone here have personal experience with them? Are they as sleazy as some people make them out to be, or is it a pointless internet furor?
What games should I buy? (I"m a 23 year old girl if that helps)
What comes with a PS2? (what accessories will I need to buy?)
This will be my 1st video game system!
I play the piano, flute, organ and guitar, in ascending order of mediocrity. I've been playing the piano for about 20 years, and I love Chopin and Debussy. I've always wanted to play the cello, though, and think I will take lessons this coming year!

Option A: Spend a bunch of money that I really shouldn't to fly to Florida and have a traditional family Christmas with my mom and brother.
Option B: Drive to Ohio and spend Christmas with my dad and step-mom, who I've never spent Christmas with because they're kinda weird, and I won't get to have any of my traditional Christmas stuff.
Option C: Stay home and have Christmas with my roommate and her brother & sister-in-law, where I can have my family traditions, but none of my family.
Option D: Secret unknown option I haven't thought of and you will tell me.
It should be noted that I really love Christmas, my family traditions, and my family.
What is your favorite word or phrase that is local to the region you grew up in (or live now, if you prefer)?

2b. How do you empty a bagless vacuum without getting dust everywhere?
2c. Upright vacuum or the canister type?
We usually have it at my Mom's house where I feel very comfortable and at home. But this year she moved to a teeny apartment so we have to have it at my sister's house. She is very bossy and overbearing and her boyfriend makes me uncomfortable
do any of you eat your apple pie this way?...because i sure don't and i don't know anyone who does.
WHAT ON EARTH does that taste like?
...i just can't imagine it being something i would enjoy.
Should I pre-order "Bender's Big Score"???
In theory, it is released next Tuesday. I already died a happy orgasmic death upon discovering that more episodes were being made, this would only re-kill me in the most blissful manner man has ever seen.
And I realize that some of you don't give a rat's ass about Futurama. This is not for YOU. This is for ME, a stupid *squeeeeee*-ing fangirl that goes through withdrawal when she doesn't get her daily dose of Bender. So STFU and take the damn poll.
so, do you?
I haven't seen this many question- or question mark-lacking posts (3) in one page for a while. Does this mean the world is ending?
Is there somewhere I can buy them online? Google isn't much help. I realise it's probably a bit silly to buy chocolate online, but dammit, they are so GOOD, I don't know why they stopped making them.

1. Can you show me pictures of how I should get my hair cut? Or will you describe it to me?
2. My eye shadow has been discontinued and I am almost out, will you suggest some good 'every day' colors??
That was 10 hours ago, and my index finger still feels tingly and weird.
1. What does this mean?
2. How can I make it feel normal again?
3. Does this mean I shouldn't buy Rock Band? :[[[[
Do you think that's cause to discontinue my unemployment benefits? The whole situation makes me nervous.

2a) What did you lie about?
2b) Did it come back to bite you in the butt?

this morning, my mother (who is in remission for lung cancer) was woken up to my cat, pauline, chewing on her hair. here's the thing. my mom had chemo and radiation and all that - so her hair is less than a half an inch long.
why was pauline trying to eat my mom's hair?
has your pet done something like this?
what was the wierdest thing your pet has done recently?
What do you think?
Would you like to recommend something to me? A community, a book, a song, anything?
ALSO, should I have pancakes for lunch or for dinner?
My boyfriend is going out on Wednesday so a pub with his mates. Leaving some time after 10.30pm, planning on getting really drunk and blah blah blah the usual.
I never have issues with him going out, but I have an issue this time. He works full time as a mechanic, from 8am-5pm, works a lot of overtime and is always complaining that he is tired. He has also changed jobs 4 times in the last year for various reasons.
I feel like a nazi, but I'm really worried that shit like this is going to cause him to loose another job. He doesn't get it. And i'd hate to be one of those girlfriends that never lets their boyfriend out. What should I do?
ETA: he also workes Saturdays, and there is no real reason for going out on Wednesday (i.e. birthday), its just because he can.
It's finally going to print and my co-worker is FURIOUS that we will not have it next week (we'll get it the first week of December) and now my co-worker insists on calling the printing company and chewing them out.
I feel that calling them, only to chew them out, will only hinder-not help the situation.
What do you think TQC?
Awesome or awful?
If you do, what kind is it, exactly? Was it worth what you paid for it? Is it difficult to use? What is your favorite feature of this product? How long do they typically last?
Did you read The Historian? What did you think of it? (I did, and I really enjoyed it)
Do you like drama communities linked to bigger communities? Why?

What kind of specs should I look for when shopping for one? She has a laptop so I want one that's very laptop convenient.
Do you use one? What do you hate or love about yours?
If you're fine with dumpster diving, would you feed your family or friends with what you got? Would you tell them where it came from?
What's the most you've ever paid for a hotel room? Where? How was it?
( Collapse )
Would you allow the children in your lives to watch older episodes of Sesame Street?
ETA: If so, what movie/show?
Should I eBay each tape/DVD individually or should I try to sell it as two lots - one for the VHS and one for DVD?
OR should I just say sod it all and bin them and make some dumpster divers very happy?
Honestly, I'd be happy if someone paid for shipping so I could get rid of them.
If it matters,the VHS movies are: American Psycho, Dogma, Mallrats, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Keeping the Faith, Gone in 60 seconds, Clerks, Chasing Amy, Grosse Point Blank, Usual Suspects, Pulp Fiction, Shawshank Redemption, Shipping News, American Beauty and Silence of the Lambs.
The DVDs are: Irma La Douce, Under the Tuscan Sun, Airplane,Airplane II, Life of Emile Zola, Double Indemnity, Exodus, Punch Drunk Love, Black Hawk Down, Support your Local Sheriff, The Lost Weekend and A Walk to Remember
Rather motley mix, I know.

ETA: PICK ANYTHING!
Mine's turkey, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, stuffing, jellied cranberry and rolls.
I want to try to make it myself.
1. What is the sauce they make it with? I've never thought it tasted quite like soy sauce...maybe there's something else mixed in? It's also so much thicker than soy sauce...
2. Would I need a wok, or could I do this in whatever skillet I have? When I look up recipes, I'm not sure if they're the exact type of thing I'm looking for.
3. I want new easy recipes to work on learning to cook. Moderately healthy things. Got a favorite you want to share?
4. Other than blending yams into cake mixes, what's a good way to get vitamins and fiber if you don't really like many vegetables?

Do you believe in true love?
Can you name three things that make you happy?
Here's what it looks like:

I'm sick of my flatmates music, i want to introduce some culture into the house.
I know we've had lots of this question lately.. but can you give me your favourite classical music piece?..
Can be instrumental or choral.
I love Jupiter- Holst and Gloria- Vivaldi.
I adore classical and there are so many famous pieces I hear around but have no idea what they are called or where they are from [perhaps the ballet, I used to go a lot as a kid] so hopefully some of you will love the famous ones too.
Thanking you muchly.
:-) x x
(she said 45% of people watching tv right now are watching it. that means 45% of tqc y/n?)
mixing it up a little. can you answer these about your best friend?
(if not best friend, bf/gf, sibling, whoever you are closest with)
1. what does he/she think about olives?
2. does he/she get motion sickness? on what, cars boats etc?
3. what does he/she hate about himself/herself physically?
4. what wakes him/her up in the morning? (alarm clock, dog, phone, whatever)
5. what would he/she want as part of his/her last meal?
why is your best friend your best friend?
do you think it's a better friendship when two people are polar opposites or incredibly alike?
Should I just bring a stereo to my wedding and burn some CD's to play? ;)
Very sad indeed.
i just looked at it and now i am freaking myself out lol.
(Horror stories of close friends or relatives work too)
2. What are/were your dinner plans for the evening? What will you eat?
3. Are you a late-night snacker?
4. Aside from clothes and toiletries, when you go away, what's one thing you MUST have?
Then I hear from the class's TA (who's my officemate) that the students weren't asked to read the play, and most of them never have. I have no idea how I'm going to give this lecture if they haven't the faintest clue what I'm talking about.
Do I spend time that I don't have tonight completely revising the lecture to somehow (I don't know how) speak to all of those students who haven't read the play? Or do I stick with what I've got and bravely go ahead and talk way over their heads for an hour?
I say less, because I really can't imagine him any hotter.
You post, "Can I friend you?"
Maybe, I'm 8.9 on Hot or Not, Ivy League grad, Mensa member, can bench/squat/leg press over 1200 lbs., has had lunch with the secretary of defense, has an MBA from the top school in the country, lives in a Buckhead high-rise, drives a Beemer convertible, has been in 14 major motion pictures, was in Jezebel's Best dressed, etc. You?
Just how wet are your panties?
Was Jezebel's Best Dressed a good movie?
Anyone know how old his Beemer is?
What's an active community that doesn't have (m)any pics?
You'd be cooler if it didn't include this, SF, poor skills or BH.
2. Just out of interest, seeing as this may be the reason I don't pass, does anyone happen to know a particular room (common in Pompeian houses) that was missing from the House of the Vettii? I tried Googling, but I think the person who wrote the exam actually just made it up.
3. Do you like Sara Evans? (I do!)
Saute some chicken in olive oil, garlic, onions & italian seasoning. Toss in some diced zucchini and really overripe tomatoes, toss with pasta. Top with parmesan.
Is that boring? How can I make it more interesting?
For anyone who's lost someone they loved, do you have any advice for handling grief?
Will you light a candle (literally or metaphorically) for my friend Michael?
What does this mean, TQC?
ETA: I don't want to abandon the journal. I want to clean out the communities and use it for something else.
Have you been tested for HIV?
What about other STDs?
How often do you get tested?
When you're in a relationship that is (supposedly) monogamous, do you ask your partner to get tested before you'll have unprotected sex with them? Does it depend on their past/history?
Do you ask to see their test results or do you take their word for it?
Have you ever had unprotected sex with someone you WEREN'T in a relationship with?
So please can you post a pic of you and your animal/s in the same photo?
I was gonna post a pic of me and my dog but i lost my dongle and can't upload pics from my phone :(
As in, tell anyone who will listen your problems.
I ask because a friend of mine has a new tradgedy every week, and tells anyone.
Today it was that her electrician hung himself, last week because someone who's dad she knew was run over by a tractor.
Would you tell people these sort of things?
1. Repressed Mormon
Say you had plans to hang out with someone after class for a few hours, and they were expecting you to be there between 3:30 and 4:00. However, you didn't have anything in specific planned, you were just going to hang around at their house for a little bit. After class one of your classmates asks if you want to go grab a bite to eat. You say sure because you know the person wouldn't mind, but you'll also be at their house a little bit later than before... around 4:30 or 5:00.
Would you call the person and let them know that you're going to be a little late?
Also, I have this nasty sore on the back of my ankle from a burst blister, and it's really not fun. How can I get it to heal faster?
Would it matter which one I got for work?
I sort of think I want one if I had the money.......... would you?
2) Guess you could say you're the one I trusted, who would ever think that you would spread like mustard?
For those of you that pee standing up:
3) Over the fence or through the gate? If you don't get this don't worry, maybe I just watch too much Curb Your Enthusiasm.
What is sex really like?
2. Do you still have Halloween candy lying around?
3. Are lady bugs invading your house?
yep, crazy weather!
4. Do you bank online?
Usually I just use it to check my balances and see what's cleared.
i need some opinions, though. first, which view do you like best, and which is most appropriate for a wedding that is "black tie optional"? I personally like the long one in the middle best, but I think I should make the one on the left.
second, what color do you think i should make it? black and white are both out and i don't like pastel, but anything else is fair game.
( Collapse )
so far, i'm leaning towards "persian blue" (as defined by wikipedia) or burnt orange. the lace and under layer can be different colors, too.
2. What does the most attractive person you know in real life look like? No pictures, use words please.
3. Does it bother you when an adult is unable to write as casually as they talk?
Edit to clarify: They can speak casually, no problem, but can't write like that. Instead, they write formal, cliched things they would never ever say: "I hope you are well. I am well also."
Do you have diabetes?
anyone in your family have it?
any suggestions on what I can do (other than eat better and take my pills) to get it lower than high?
anyway, i was so pleasantly surprised - it's totally not what i expected and it's great!
so, tea-queue-sea, what kind of surprises have you had recently?
(good or bad, whatever floats your boat...)
I have already masturbated, stole my roommate's food, watched 3 movies, called and screwed a hooker, and done blow off of her ass.
What should I do to occupy my time? I AM SO BORED.
1b) What was the last song you did this to?
2) The weak or the strong, who got it going on?
#2. what's a good way to forget about someone you think of everyday, even by hearing a word associated with them?
What were your favorite short lived fads?
I was always partial to my Tamagotchi =P
i'm bored, angsty, and pissed off. i've got a problem with my friends, and my family... everyone want's to kill everyone else... so i have come to my sanctuarty... LJ...
i'm bored of being asked "what are you listening to?" and when the reply come back as cinema bizarre, them saying "cinema bizarre? who the fuck are they?"
then i say, "they are a german band" and they say "what? why would you wanna listen to that crap?" without haveing ever heard it.
well, all i can say is 1) don't knock it 'till you've tried it, and 2) just because it dosent appeal to you, dosen't mean i can't like it.
so, i'm bring my piss assed problems to TQC.
so, here are my questions:
1) have you ever heard of cinema bizarre?
2)if yes, did you like it? if no, would you be prepared to give them a try?(it's in english, i swear!)
3)have you ever judged a band by the contry they are from?
4)how can i deal with the fact that nobody has a clue who they are?
5)dose my catchphrase (BITCHEZ) annoy you? (irrelevant, i know)
okay, and beacuse i'm weird, here's a sample of their music, with a video i made for the people who haven't heard of them!
<object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/QNb8CexkerI&rel=1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/QNb8CexkerI&rel=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>

My oddest saying is my dad saying "the chinese say the bird that sticks his head out gets it blown off"

2- What's the last bit of news you received but couldn't wrap your brain around? Did you ever accept it? When?
3- What sort of news would you like to get in the near future?
( Collapse )
Have you ever said or done anything that made you feel like a hypocrite? What was it?
1) How often do you use a dictionary?
2) What kinds of dictionaries do you use?
3) Do you rather use online dictionaries or books?
4) What types of dictionaries do you know? (this referes to different types of dictionaries like for instance etymological, monolingual etc.)
5) What kind of difficulties did you experience when using dictionaries?
I fully understand that some people do not celebrate the holidays. I also understand that there are more holidays than Christmas at the end of December. The over-sensetivity is getting really ridiculous though. Everyone knows that a pine tree with lights hanging from it is associated with being a Christmas tree, so calling it a holiday tree is just a little silly.
Gah. Yeah, that's all. Kplznthx. =]
Are the good campy or bad campy? Can you not decide?
How is the weather? Anyone else get snow?
Have you changed?
Who are you now?
What's overwhelming you right now?
I've heard of him before, but never heard him before.
What kind of music does he sing?
Besides the Christmas carols he did today, obviously.
He's really pretty good!
Do you *HAVE* to have a mortgage against your house?
What's your "happy scent"? (err.... you know; a scent that no matter your mood, that once you smell, it makes you happy!) Mines is Honeysuckle. *inhales deeply* (In fact, I have two honeysuckle scented candles burning right now! HAAPPPPPPPY!)
As I said above, am currently renting, just moved a month or two ago, well, this place has no holes in the walls whatsoever. Should I call and ask if its okay before I hang things up (like posters/calendars/photos) or should I just hang them up any ol' how?
Do you take naps?
Yis I do!
I volunteered to work the night before thanksgiving, and will have to work 6 days in a row because of it. Am I out of my ever loving mind??? Granted, I'm prolly saving the lives of innocent co-workers and random bitchy customers, but *still*, I think I've gone and lost my head!
Lastly; in that vain, I want tomorrow night to be as pain-free as humanly possible, and am thinking of buying sugary candies and a couple of caffeinated beverages for my co-workers *shrug* I will do just about anything to keep the peaces from falling to pieces. Any suggestions??
dw-- prolly needs to make self a teal deer icon (lol)
i have an irrational fear of amputees. not the people, just their amputation. the stump i guess.
when i think about them too much i'm afraid there's one in my room trying to touch me with their stump. :(
