who needs a friend now more than ever?
Post a picture please, I need inspiration for a shopping trip tomorrow :P
Can I see a picture of your thanksgiving belly?
B. About how many text messaged do you send/receive in a month?
C. Do you know someone with a ridiculous amount of shoes? (example 80-something pairs)
B. ~400 I might need more because my friends and my sister are texting whores!
C. My old roommate had 30 pairs in our dorm--don't ask me how she fit that many.
Backstory: He worked at Mervyn's for a while before he moved 6 hours away to go to college. He mentioned right before I dumped him.....that he was seriously thinking of dropping out of college, coming back home, going to school at my community college, and getting a job.
What would your alternate universe clone be like?
Also, do you prefer if the person asks if they can kiss you or if they just take charge and kiss you? (providing you like the person already and want to kiss them)
Are you a squeezer?
Do you own a dildo/vibrator?
If yes, how often do you have fun with it?
I can feel one coming..
the biggest squeezer if i ever get them, bad habit.
sure. A present from Amsterdam's red light district... along with fat porn.. which was a joke..i think..
never at the moment, i'm too lazy to buy new batteries. It's on my to do list for tomorrow. oh yes.
feel free to throw in non-serious answers too
what do you sell?
yes, cigars and such
Does it still feel like you're playing house? What's become different in your relationship?
EDIT: If you answered 'the internet', in what ways is it ruining your life?
I'd like that new iPod Touch, and maybe a new camera, a car...
For some reason that's all I can think of for right now, but I'm positive there's more.
I know that "Memento Mori" means "remember thy death" in latin. Is "Memento Vivere" an accurate phrase, meaning "remember to live" or something to that effect? If not, what would be the Latin phrase for the same meaning?
I'm up at 4AM. I do this every night. What night job should I get to appease my night owl side?
I'm most of the way into an all-nighter (it's 5.43am and the sun's coming up), I can't go to bed until all my work is done and my deadline is met, and I'm starting to feel the effects of adrenaline overload. Woo! Oh, and I haven't seen my crush in far too long. Lol.
Want to get it off your chest?
Tonight I will be going to my friend's place for some drinks and whatnot. They have 2 cats. I am very much allergic to cats. I have my trusty eye drops to help itchy eyes, but nothing to relieve the sneezing, sniffling and nasal misery.
To those who are allergic to cats, what brand of allergy pill do you take before contact with kitties?
Who'd do it?
Why is this happening? Should I uninstall it, then re-install it? I'm sure we have the latest version.
I have Windows XP if that is relevant.
Thanks in advance!
My cousin and I are very close, he's more like a brother than a cousin. Because of his job he can't come visit often, though, so I see him once or twice a year. He brought a girlfriend with him this year to Thanksgiving, and he's spending all his time with her now. Is it bad that I'm a little resentful of the fact that I'm not spending as much time with him?
I also took them to the store last night and on the way home, drove them through a really nice area to show them the houses there. I mentioned a synagogue that was nearby (it looks gorgeous all lit up at night) and the girlfriend said the neighborhood was ruined for her now that she knew it was full of Jews. Major alarm bells going off in my head for this. She seems nice, but doesn't like people who are Jewish, Indian, Black, or Mexican, and all she's talked about since she got here is how much she hates her town because of those people, and how much she loves shopping for high end clothes and accessories. We're supposed to go meet my boyfriend later today, along with his friend and his friend's fiancee (who is Mexican), but now I'm wondering if that's a good idea. What do you think TQC?

Does anyone want to make me a super awesome Christmas icon?
Are you going to make a super awesome Christmas icon?
Is TQC going to have a holiday icon contest again?
Edit: Fixed, thanks :D
1. Do you chose softness or strength?
2. How many rolls do you buy at a time?
3. Over or under?
4. How much (average) do you use at a time?
5. Where do you keep the extra rolls? Within reach of the toilet? Where somebody else can fetch it for you if you find yourself in a 'bind'?
6. Toilet paper is one of the things you do not go cheap on, y/n?
7. Do you read in the bathroom? If so, what? Do you entertain yourself in other ways? (Y'all know what I mean...)
Personally, I kinda dig it. I think some of the drawings/images would make good tattoos.
TQC, my stomach is incredibly upset from too much good food. I am very sad about this, because I was going to meet slinksgirl today, and now, well, let's just say that that would be a bad idea.
How can I make my stomach stop hating me?
Also, what kind of underwear are you wearing?
What are you planning to do today?
Have you gotten any presents for people yet?
How was Thanksgiving for you? Did you have any fun?
Have you been having leftovers yet?
2. Did you celebrate Thanksgiving? If so, how was it? If not, how was your Thursday?
3. Do you have any magazine subscriptions? To what magazines?
2. me and my friend were supposed to go black friday shopping today, however, she said we can't do it until later. I don't see the point of going later. should I still go? even if it's like 4pm?
3. one of my cats was in my room this morning when I woke up, with NO possible way to get in there. I had shut my door & locked it last night.. it wasn't open, and she didn't follow me in the room last night. then all 3 of my cats are standing in the kitchen waiting for me to feed them, and out of nowhere they all dash away, the hairs on their backs sticking straight up. something spooked them - usually this happens when something falls & makes a loud sound. nothing fell... tqc, do I have a ghost in my house?
2. I have a whole bunch of coins from various countries (even some countries that don't exist anymore) dating from as early as 1917 to around the 1950s. I don't expect they are worth much, but who would I take them to if I wanted to find out? An antique store?
3. I saw a bumper sticker in Maine the other day which said "If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading this in English, thank a soldier." Now I get what it is supposed to mean...but technically shouldn't we thank the British?
Can anyone recommend a product for use in the car to prevent back pain?

It's an online game site thing where you start off with 1 cent and double it each time you win games against other people.
eta: reply quick cause it's a one-time thing. I have to send out the invites all at once.
I sent out invites to all the people that requested. You can still get a referral from me but you won't get the 32 cent bonus.
What will you do to cheer me up today?
summary for the link-phobic - they're developing software that will translate thoughts into noise which will allow people who don't have the ability to speak to express themselves. the subject of the current experiments is a guy who got fully paralyzed in a car accident. the only thing that he can consciously control is his eye movements and that's currently what he's using to communicate (look up for yes and down for no). so far, they have gotten the software to recognize vowel sounds.
of course, the first thing that i thought of is that the guy's first words will be 'i want to die' or something to that effect.
what are the ethical implications of this? what would the doctor's responsibility be in a situation like that?
frank (the guy at the dinner) said that the paralyzed guy was really excited to be involved in this study so he feels that his first words will probably be something more positive and i said that he's probably just psyched to have hope of some day expressing this desire.
I really don't want to go, because I'm all "OMG anxiety!", I really dislike sleeping outside of my comfort zone, and this will be for two nights.
Anyway, Tuesday I came down with tonsillitis and today I have a chest wracking cough. I'm uncomfortable but certainly not on the brink of death.
I told the coordinator a few days ago that I was unwell. We are going to be in confined quarters on a bus for a few hours, and then sleeping in a dormitory for 2 nights.
So, do I call up and cancel? Or just suck it up? I hate feeling like I'm disappointing people but I know I wouldn't appreciate being so near to someone sounding like they have the TB.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a digital camera for me?
Any help would be appreciated.
my question was,
How many times have you gotten sick from eating too much on thanksgiving
Tell five things about yourself that noone else knows
3. Do you think I should get one?
Should I go do it anyways?
2) What was the first movie you ever saw in the theaters? How old were you? (Mine was The Little Mermaid, and I was 5 or so.)
Although, it makes you gain weight like nobody's business and it's not well known for enabling a body to keep a fresh breath.
What else can be said of chocolate?
They were out of Virgil's root beer at my local Whole Foods.
So my husband picked up a 4 pack of some other natural root beer, in hopes.
But alas, it sucks.
Like, it's really shitty.
Can I return it?
We each took only a sip of one bottle.
Have you ever returned some sort of food product that sucked ass?
I like "trolling for vampires" and "clogging molly".
Why do my folders keep reversing the sort order so Z is at the top instead of A? It's really annoying. :(
What was the last thing that made you super happy? My friend gave me my birthday present early, a paid account for a year. No more surveys for me! (Except to use for extra icons.) Also, I just made green bean casserole since I didn't get to yesterday. I wait all year for this.
What's something you over indulge in? I think it'd be candy for me. Or TV shows. And the internet.
2. Have you heard of any of the following musical artists:
a. Tom McRae
b. Beth Orton
d. Straylight Run
What do you think of them? Do you wish more people knew about them? Do you share their magical gifts with friends and family?
3. What is it, girls, about riding the cotton pony that posesses me to go out and buy 40 Advil liqui-gels and two bags of mint-flavored MnM's?
4. I just traded in 3 gamecube games I never play and got Sims: Open for Business new and $4 cashback as well. Good deal, Y/N? Sims: OfB, Y/N?

Seems it's getting some (marginal) publicity of what a cock-up this is.
So: Whose fault is this? The company for the misinterpretation/standing behind it, or FCC for the way they described it? (Or, I don't know, congress, the easter bunny, Che Guevara, pick one)
When you find the drive in My Computer and right click on it, normally a drive would have "Explore" bolded since that's the default action when you double click on it. This one has "Install and Run Program" as its default action, and so it tries to open up an .exe file to sync the drive and I don't want to do that.
So is there any way to make "Explore" be the default action when I double click on the drive? I found answers for XP, but I'm on Vista. :(
Who is the single dearest person in your life? (Outside of your SO or your children.)
Perhaps the headline could be something like "New Verizon cellphones warn criminals by sounding an alarm if someone in the area calls 9-1-1 to report a crime in progress."
The Fark entry would link to the article Verizon customer calls phone alarm 'dangerous'.
Everyone -- Can you come up with a funnier Fark-Style headline?
Do you have an account with Fark? If you do, would you submit the link for me?
Thanks in advance.
They laid eggs. I sold some. they laid more eggs. I gave some away. they laid more eggs....
Now I have 10 lovebirds.
All of them are Shrieking constantly in crazy bird skwaks. They will not STFU. argh they are driving me frigging insane.
How do you get birds to be quiet?
I went to ASDA like 2 weeks ago and got some eggs. I left them outside and I checked on them this morning and they were all rotten and gross. How come they didn't hatch into chickens? I'd absolutely love to have a little array of yellow chicks running around my feet, so what happened? Did I just get some bad eggs or what?
Thanks for any help, guys!

You just found out you're dying, say, in the next month.
You also have a few bills at home you haven't paid yet, but can easily afford. You'll be alive when they're due, but not when they cut service.
Would you pay them?
Pretend you live alone, if you don't.
[EDIT] Assume that the money you owe will not carry over to anyone else. Once you die, the matter is dropped.
Which best describes you?
What was the last thing you ate?
Mine is silly. I forgot to grab my gloves earlier when I went to the supermarket, and I was too lazy to go back upstairs to get them. My hands still haven't quite warmed up, 3 hours later.
2) What did you get?

Thus, touching upon an idea their own mothers brought into play ages ago, they made Jelly Poopers.
I was quite interested in this yesterday and quizzed Mom on it heavily. Plus, hadn't had them in so long I wanted to see if they were at all difficult to make; I'm told Mom's mom used figs and sometimes small bits of meat.
A Jelly Pooper is simply a circle of dough, flattened and folded over, baked until it is slightly browned. In the middle you have strawberry jelly or preserves; really any type of jelly will do. At most they take barely 10 minutes to make...possibly longer if you have many little kids around eating the dough faster than you can flatten, fill, fold over, and get them into the oven.
Anyway, that's what often happened with excess pie crust dough. Keeping in mind you're not limited to just this same type of food, what do you do with the excess of anything you make in the kitchen?
Oh, by the way, I should probably mention that Jelly Poopers are about handsized. We're talking little circles of dough.

...become a heroin addict? For 30 days, you're given regular, potent doses of H, every few hours, until your body is heavily addicted. You get your money and you're sent on your way. After that, you can go into rehab on your own, or keep on nursing your addiction, it's up to you. It won't be easy, but you'll be a multi-millionaire
...help close down a charity? There's an honest charity that spends every last dollar it gets helping out unprivileged kids and setting them straight. Someone wants them closed down and all you have to do is plant incriminating evidence that will close their doors forever. Would you do it?
...lose your left leg below the knee? It's amputated and you can have very workable, possibly lifelike prosthetics screwed on in its place. But you will always be missing a natural limb
...be willing never to travel more than 5 miles of your home? Where you choose to live will be point zero and you're planted with an ankle bracelet that gives you an extremely painful shock if you travel beyond 5 miles. Removing it results in a loss of your money and a repossession of items purchased. The ankle monitor is small and unsightly
...have your taste buds permanently deadened? All food will henceforth lose its flavor and be identified only by its texture. However, you're filthy rich. The process cannot be reversed
...have your likeness be the default model of a new Real Sex doll? The newest model will have tremendous upgrades over all other sex toys and will be purchased by thousands upon thousands of curious (and lonely) sex enthusiasts. However, it cannot be customized. All models will look just like you. People the world over will be banging copies of yourself and you may be recognized on the streets as the designer mold model
Have you ever squirted/gushed/ejaculated during sex?
Was it during clitoral or g-spot stimulation, or other (I've not heard of any other case, but I figured, it's TQC, I'd better include an extra option)?

What kind of Christmas decorations should I buy? This is going to be the first year of decorating my own house and I am excited.
2. How long did it take to heal?
3. Have you ever had a relapse?
1b. In particular- anyone know any places with christmasy/wintery brushes and tubes?
2. Do you like the more modern Christmas music (Stuff like Jingle Bell Rock, Rocking Around he Christmas Tree and etc) or do you just prefer traditional (Joy to the World, Little Drummer Boy etc) me- I like both. Currently, I keep listening to Everclear's version of "Santa Baby"
3. Does anyone know where i can get a layout/learn to make a very simple lj layout like what I have now only with Christmas-y colors. Basically just customize the colors and put my own image as a banner at the top?
4. Do you change your userinfo for the holidays or do you think it's silly? I don't think it's silly...I'm going to change mine around tonight.
I just listened to "Smile" by Josh Groban and it made me feel better.

Where should we go?
I am seriously the world's worst person to shop with so I don't know why he thought this was a good idea.
I want to send him something for Christmas, but he won't tell me what he wants because he says I don't have to buy him anything. However, he's already bought ME something, and I'll feel really bad if I don't get him anything.
So, what is a good, slightly romantic but not overly bleh Christmas present that is slightly cheapish and can be sent overseas?
What is a movie that every person should see at least once in their lifetime?

If every time you had an orgasm, you experienced some short term memory loss, what would the next year be like for you? Just so you know, orgasm-induced, memory-depletion results will accumulate, so the more you 'get off' the more memories will be 'taken off',
