Help me choose a minor. I am open to anything. WWYD if you were a psych major with a required double major or minor?
Will you post the most recent picture you took? Or one from Thanksgiving/this weekend?
I've been on the pill for like 5 years now. I won't be able to get it refilled for a while, and thus will be without it for a week. Now, besides the obvious side effect of being more likely to get pregnant, what other side effects can I expect from going off it for just a week? Will it really even matter?
1) For those of you who speak/are some what familiar with spanish, how do you say turkey?
Pavo? Chompipe? Guajolote? Chumpe? Jolote?
2) Does it sound odd to you to hear it called something else?
3) If you have no interest in questions 1 & 2, what do you have an interest in?
Does anyone else use Skype to make overseas calls?
Do you use the free Skype to Skype calling or use it to call landlines/cell phones?
If you've been using it tonight, does the call quality completely suck?
Would I get better quality calls if I paid to call my parents' landline?
Alternatively, is there another good way to make super cheap international calls that would have better quality?
Do you know anyone who looks like a model?
Have you ever painted a miniature model?
Do you enjoy painting miniatures?
Do you have a pic of one you've painted, if you do paint them?
To any TQC Nintendo Wii owners --
Is there a way to transfer a saved game from one Wii to another? I'm going to Vegas in a few weeks for work and want to play my Zelda file on my friend's Wii, but I'm not sure how. I have to option to bring my Wii with me, but I'd rather not travel with it.
Which brings me to... should I be concerned about my Wii going through the x-ray machine? My sister says she's worried it'll harm it, and I have no idea if it will or not.
This whole post sounded sexual in a very odd way.
Did/do you skip class?
I'm skipping class tomorrow
Can you post pictures of the people you love and tell me little tidbits about them/your relationship with them?
I'm in the mood for some heartwarming stories and aww-worthy pictures.
If you're in a bad mood how do you get yourself in a better mood?
What do you think about people who get married while they're still 18/19/20?
EDIT: When do you personally feel is the "right" age to marry?
for all your copyeditors and proofreaders out there:
can you recommend a book or two that outlines a good introduction to copyediting/proofreading? i'd like to begin to teach myself. thanks in advance.
ok it's 2:26 am and I still can't sleep.
sleeping pills are not an option at this point as I have to be up in 4 hours.
fuck is my favorite word tonight.
what's your favorite word?
why are you still up at this hour?
I woke up at 3:00PM today, or I guess yesterday, and my entire body hurt insanely bad. Well, it still hurts, it actually feels worse. AND I have bruises all over my legs and I feel like I have a black eye, though there isn't a bruise or anything. Just the painy feeling. What the hell, TQC? Did I get into a fight with ninjas in my sleep?
Should I try to go to sleep now? I don't want to but I know I should. Hm...
Do you like birds? I dislike birds. They are too bony, with their tiny little...bones. And they can flap in your face if they really wanted to.
I have like, the reverse of seasonal effective disorder. Feel terrible in the summer, over the top during winter. Is my brain confused?
What the hell am I talking about?
What does it mean if someone's an anarchist?
I read an article about why kids drop out of college, and one of the reasons was that the work was way too hard. High school didn't prepare the kids and it was just too overwhelming. A girl left a comment saying that she took all AP classes in high school and college was still too hard for her.
1) So, for those of you who are in college, do you think you were prepared, was it significantly harder than high school or is it really completely overwhelming?
2) Is it stupid to major in something that you're just okay at, rather than really good at? Would I be setting myself up for failure?
For example, I've pretty much made up my mind that I want to go for science (conservation biology, wildlife conservation, biology... one of those. Haha.) They always say you need a strong math and science background. Math- I'm pretty pathetic at. I have the basics down but other than that, it's really challenging. I've decided on science because it's what I'm most interested in, but I'm afraid I'll end up surrounded by a bunch of science geniuses while I barely get by. I know I could easily major in English and fly right through, but I just don't want to.
3) (for those of you who don't care about the above)
If you could have something weird in a house that you built, what would it be?
I'd want a room with a ceiling that was actually a huge fish tank, so I could watch them swim around. I'm sure someone has that, but whatever.
Why am I still awake?
Have you ever thrown your sleep cycle out of whack? How did you fix it?
Do you worry when you order things online?
With lomo cameras do you have to develop something or is there a usb?
what's a good way to show someone you hate them?
When did the cool kids start saying Internets/z instead of Intarweb?
If you're married, does all your stuff become communal property, or do you still feel like your things are exclusively yours? I don't mean legally, I mean, "Please ask me before you use my towel/notebook/mp3 player?" Would this happen maybe with only very special, significant items? Unmarried people are welcome to weigh in as well.
Do you have a facebook?
If you do, show me your default picture!
If you don't, how old are you?
Why haven't i just given up on life itself?
PS- I'm going, guys.
who was the best musical artist (band/singer/bspears) you've ever seen live?
Does anyone remember a children's book about a dinosaur who makes some sort of peanut butter snack thing and there's a recipe in the book?
I'm pretty sure my memory isn't fabricating this, but maybe.
1. How was your weekend?
2. What did you do?
3. Best thing to happen?

5. Any pictures you want to share?
1- Would you like to buy me a renaming token for my LJ?
2- What colour is the sky right now?

4- What's the last thing online to make you sad?

Do you have a "phone voice"? If so, how does it differ from your normal voice?
Do you consider something 'paid' once you write a check for it, even if you never mail the check?
Why does my job suck so much? :(
Have you ever dated a co-worker? If so, was it someone above you in rank? Was it a place that wasn't an office - more like a retail job? How did that go for you?
I haven't gone to my psych class for eight billion years. When you were a senior in high school, were you afflicted by senioritis? Was your case mild, moderate, or severe?

For those of you who have kids, did your relationship with your partner change in a positive or negative way?
What is your best remedy for warding off a cold you can feel coming on. I feel it...and I absolutely CANNOT get sick.
Have you done something really stupid lately?
I bumped my head at work yesterday really, really hard. I was putting my bag on a shelf, under a staircase and leaned up really fast. I had tears in my eyes and my head started bleeding and my co-worker was like "Shit, are you alright?" when I walked out wiping blood from my head. My reply was "If I faint, tell the ambulance man I hit my head".
Does anyone remember a children's book from several years ago that's about some kids in some European country during WW2. They ride their sleds a lot and somehow they get involved in smuggling some gold out of their town right under the Nazis' noses... they put them on their sleds, cover them up with a blanket or something, and pretend like they're sled riding for fun. What freakin' book is that?!
All I remember is my copy was purple and had a picture of a kid sledding down a hill. Or something like that.
Thanks in advance, y'all. :)
Do you play The Sims 2?
What expansion packs do you have?
In the Glass Menagerie, does Williams ever mention how the father died? I need to write an eight page prequel or sequel, and I'm just not sure how to do it other than possibly doing a prequel about how the kids' dad died.
Question for the runners out there: What is the best way to dress for running road races in the cold?
Obviously pants/headband/breathable gloves etc., but is there anything I can wear or put over my mouth so I'm not sucking in freezing air while running? Any specific type of layering that is best? I have never run for long outside in the cold before and don't want to give up after the first mile because I'm a wussy cold person.
For other people: Does it annoy you when city traffic and roads are blocked because of run/walk charity events? In my experience, some people are really damm rude to runners on the roads.
1. do you work overtime sometimes?
2. are you paid for your overtime work? if you weren't paid would you still work overtime?
my boss is weird and this morning she was saying how the competition works on saturdays and sundays during crunch time. hinting that i should too. we do not get paid for working overtime. nor do we get time off for it. there's no sort of recognition for the extra effort. i have many times worked on saturdays AND sundays but then its like it doesn't matter. she's talking to me today like i've never stayed after work (i'm supposed to leave at 4:30 but i'm always leaving much later than that). i dunno that shit just rubbed me the wrong way. i do not have a problem with working overtime (and i will stay in later because this project needs to get done, i just hate the way she acted like i don't ever do it, and the fact that there's no recognition what so ever. *ugh and as usual i couldn't verbalise any of this at the time :(
3. oh TQC what would you do!?
Everytime one of my roommates takes a shower, she shuts the shower curtain, and I always have to make sure no one is dead in the shower or hung themselves before I can pee. So anyway, I was thinking...Our school has this deal where if your roommate kills themselves in your dorm, you get to move to a sweet ass dorm, and you don't have to pay for the next semester, or you get the current one refunded. My very twisted questions based on this are....
1. If you were going to kill yourself, would you do it in your dorm so your roommates would get to move, and get better housing? Why or why not?
And for those of you who are just going to say ' I will never kill myself so whatever '....
2. For my interview at the university bookstore, should I wear:
a. Black jeans and a polo

e. black pants and a button up blouse (black)
f. khakis and a polo with a grey V neck sweater over it
g. other besides naked
What are you doing to change the world?
What is an issue near and dear to your heart?
If you could get people to understand one thing about that issue, what would it be?
I don't really know what I'm doing, but the fact that Indiana consistently has more than 52 children die each year from abuse eats away at my heart. Just think, at least one child a week dies here at the hands of someone who is supposed to be protecting him or her.
TQC, if you cook pasta and then refrigerate it, how long do you think it'll stay good for? I only ask because I have a thing of leftover pasta (no sauce, just the pasta) that's been in there for almost a week. Should I still eat it?
I'm thinking yes, but that's why I'm asking you.
How much television would you say you watch in an average day? *By "television," I mean not only network & cable TV, but DVD movies, DVDs of TV shows, movies and shows you download, and online movies and episodes of shows.*
I watch probably half an hour to an hour on average. I spend most of the day writing papers/theses, and I like to fire up an episode of South Park or the West Wing to relax before I go to bed.
What do you wish your cell/mobile phone internet browser could do, but can't now?
What's the last thing that you either said/thought or did that you know was just wrong on your behalf? A customer just walked in right now and eh.. i couldn't help but think to myself 'that's unfortunate' i know that was wrong of me :(
inspired by last weeks episode of Nip/Tuck....
would you help someone fulfill their fantasy?
what if their fantasy was them injecting their body with drugs, laying in a tub of ice and water and then being fucked back to life?
does that at all remind anyone else of titanic?
will you EVER let go?
I interviewed for a job at The Gap for the holidays. Nothing major, just weekends and a couple of nights a week. I thought I had done just fine in the interview, but apparently not, as the girl who interviewed me let me know that they wouldn't need me. I would have been fine with that, had my friend not gone in there this morning and been asked by someone if she'd like to "make a little cash" this month. So, my question is what the fuck?
How does one screw up an interview for something as silly as a holiday job at The Gap? All this girl asked me was what do I do, how well do I work with people, and a bunch of other inane crap that I'd suspect they ask at every interview. Did she just immediately dislike me or did I perhaps give of some sort of a vibe that made her think I was incapable of properly folding sweaters?
EDIT: Before there is another comment about my attitude: I was very very nice to this girl and I did indeed want the job. I told her more than once how often I shopped there and how much I like their clothes. I have a right to be bitter now, though.
Is there any kind of legal action I could take against a hospital/clinic over losing my medical files?
ETA: Even for something like emotional distress … or something?
1. in the past month, what have you spent the most money on, other than bills? after looking at my bank account online, my answer is eating out/bar...this is almost always the case.
2. how much do you pay on average for a beer or mixed drink in your town? here in metro detroit, i would say on average, $3 for a bottle/pint of beer, or $4-5 for a mixed drink.
3. do you think $750 is a high or low price for a decent laptop? i'm looking at a dell with 2GB memory and 160GB hard drive, and an intel core 2 duo processor.
4. what does gas cost in your town right now? metro detroit, about $3.05
5. if you had to get rid of ONE monthly payment that you currently make in order to make ends meet, what would it be? i would have to say cable tv (not internet though). i would pick the gas bill but it gets pretty damn cold in michigan.
Letting your baby crawl on the floor in the library, perfectly OK or not? why?
1. What is your favourite summery salad recipe? I just made a really great salad with corn, avocado and kidney beans and I wanted some more new ideas :)

1. Would you ever buy your SO/spouse a car for Christmas?
2. Why or why not?
What (if anything) do you say when someone sneezes in your presence?
Can you list five things that you honestly like about yourself?
Do you consider age a bad thing? Why or why not?
Woah, did I just enter the twilight zone or what? Age being bad seems universal...how everyone is all "Oh I"m getting older, don't remind me!" or how people say "I'm getting SO OLD" as if it's a curse. And how you don't ask people their age because it's rude. Hope that makes the question a bit clearer.
TQC, what's your favourite holiday movie?
EDIT: Does anyone remember a movie called The Bestest Present? I think it was a movie based on the comic For Better or for Worse about a girl who loses her favourite toy bunny. It was the one movie I watched every year and nobody else seems to remember it existing.
Why do I always type TCQ first?
Are flounces annoying and inappropriate or fantastic and entertaining?
What was the best flounce that ever occurred in the history of TQC?
If you work (with other people) -
1/ Who is your favorite person at work and why?
2/ Who is your least favorite person at work and why?
Sorry about my age question by the way - you know me and my infamous knack for saying things all weird. I guess what I meant was are you one of those people who is all down about getting older and how you don't want to be reminded of it and all that jazz.
Paging Dr LJ
I've had a fever for over a week and I keep getting dizzy and feeling like I'm going to pass out when standing. I feel okay for the first hour or two when I wake up and then it goes downhill from there. Should I go to the doctors or wait this one out?
Is anyone here a CNA or ever done training to be a CNA? Do you like your job? How did the training course go? Was it worth it?
(A CNA is a Certified Nursing Assistant)
Do you remember the show Popular?
Did you watch it way back when it just started airing on the WB, or the reruns on the Family Channel, or other? I watched it way back when, i only now found out about the reruns, which explains a lot to me now (I don't have TV anymore, haven't for a while).
I just got Season Two out of the library so i am going to finish it, as i didn't see a lot of the episodes.
Do you want to talk about it? I do. Don't worry about spoilers for me, i already saw a lot of spoilers from lurking the internets about it.
I recently realized that it was really a brilliant sociological experiment, so i am out of the closet about liking it. Do you agree with this theory?
Have you seen Wristcutters: A Love Story? Leslie Bibb from Popular is in it.
It is based on stories by Etgar Keret. Have you read them? I just got them out of the library.
my friend is driving rightnow from oklahoma to iowa, he's really bored and still has over 5 hours left, what are some ways i can keep him entertained (via text since I'm at work) ?
If a good-sized nuclear bomb exploded on the moon, could we see it from Earth? Does anyone have a big bomb and a method to get it to the moon so we can try it out?
What do you all think about the fact that you are able to order steak and other foods off of television channels such as QVC and HSN? I personally think it's lazy and kind of weird.
Do you ever feel sad when you get an email, go to read it and realize it's not an LJ comment like you thought it was?
How's your Monday going?
What has been the biggest blow you've ever had to your self-esteem? What do you do to make yourself feel better when your self-esteem is low?
Have you ever been on an alternative spring break or vacation? How was the experience?
Edit: An alternative spring break or vacation from what I get is when you volunteer through some organization to help those in need in different part of the country or world for about a week or so. Sorry I wasn't more clear.
What is the worst day out of the week for you?
1. What would your favorite movie be like if your least favorite director had been in charge of it?

Also, Do you have your Christmas tree up yet?
I just bought a PS3 and Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare but I can't figure out how to play split screen for online multiplayer. I have two controllers but it only lets one person join at one time per game. Help?
Will you tell me a fact? It can be about anything and if you can, please tell me where your fact came from.
Mine came from UNICEF. A child dies from Malaria every 30 seconds in Africa. In the time it took me to come up with this post, a child has died from a largely preventable disease. Shocking!
why are all you guys such assholes?
Internet- edited for clarity. I probably have something gross like strep throat- red tongue, prickly feeling, sore throat. But I have a dentist appointment on thursday, and don't think I can wait the three hours in the doctor's office til friday. What should I say to the dentist?
A few of my classes have policies on late assignments. One docks 5% off the mark for every day the assignment is late, including weekends (unless you've got a very good excuse and a doctor's note).
At what point would you consider it pointless to hand in a minor assignment? What about a major assignment?
If you could go to a class on anything at all, what would it be?
I want to start a baby rental agency. It will allow people to have a child for as long as they want, with no worries about getting bored and regretting it, no 9 months of pregnancy, and no labor. You can also test drive the children, so to speak. Not sure if you can handle one? Rent it for a week and see! I might join the agency with my cookie factory, so you can pick up a fresh child and some fresh delicious cookies!
1. What should I name it?
2. How much should I charge per age-group? I'm thinking the groups will be: 0 months - 2 years, 3 years - 6 years, 7 years - 14 years, and then 15 years - 18 years. There will also be the option to buy a baby after a minimum of one week test driving. How much should that be?
3. Should I offer cheaper rates over time? Example: someone gets one child for two weeks and pays $50 per day, another person gets a child of the same age for a month and pays $35 a day.
4. Will this be a haven for pedophiles?
5. Would you make use of such a service? I need to see if there is enough demand for this before I invest time and resources into such a big endeavor.
6. Is there any advice you have for me before I start my agency?

Pretend you step outside and find a box on your porch. It's an anonymous holiday present! When you look down at it, what is the first thing that you would guess it is? Who would you think it is from?
As you stare more at the mysterious gift, your imagination runs wild as you realize it could be ANYTHING from ANYONE. What would you want it to be? Who would you want it to be from?
What does it take to become well-known in the world of livejournal?
It's weird to me how all of the sudden people can be A HUGE DEAL just from the stuff they post on the internet. I find it fascinating.
Can you tell me about a way that the internet has affected you in real life?

TQC, I have a dry socket from my wisdom tooth removal, and i have to keep a heating pad on it for the next week, thus garnering funny looks from the majority of my classmates.
What's the weirdest thing you've ever seen someone do in a classroom?
Did anyone (including the teacher) say anything to them?
How can I make myself less conspicuous?
1) where can I acquire a cheap desk chair (with arm rests plz <3) for under 30 bucks? I've looked everywhere- Ikea, Target, Staples, and Office Depot.
2) Have you ever dissected a squid?
3) Doesn't Frank Sinatra make you think of christmas?
What do you think of people who use big words seemingly for the sole purpose of showing off their vocabularies? Should they get off their high horse? Or, God forbid they show a smidgen of intelligence?
I only ask because there's a guy in one of my classes who insists on using the biggest words possible in his writing. I'm going through his essay, and it looks like he's done the "find synonyms" thing on Word and grabbed the longest one there, over and over and over.
Which, in my opinion, makes him look like a pretentious douche who's hellbent on proving himself as the smartest guy in class.
What do you think, TQC?
Has anyone ever broken in to your house?
Have you ever thought someone broke in to your house because things were moved around?

I need to reinstall my XP... I kind of left my CD for HP back at my parents place across the globe. And it's probably lost in the midst of all software CDs in a big box somewhere in the house. But I have the CD for a Dell laptop with me. It's the same version XP but it's for Dell. Does that mean I can't use it for my HP?
What's the best comeback you've ever come up with, or heard?

It's Monday. It's been a Monday. Right down to the backspace key sticking and deleting a whole chunk of your post. *fnarr*
You sit in front of the computer with the cold frosty beverage of your choice, start up iTunes, and start playing... What?
I've been listening to Abba and The Bee Gees all evening. Did the trick. Nothing like nicely blended harmonies to a beat you can dance to...
what do you like about yourself?

Why is it that at my college, in the academic building bathrooms there are toilet seat covers, but in the dorm bathrooms there aren't? Is it like....we live in the same building, so who cares if our asses touch the same surface?
1. I have bit my tongue in the same spot 3 times today, by sneezing. I've tried not to but because it's so swollen from the first 2 times, I just did it again. it bled a little bit. have you ever bit your tongue so hard it started bleeding?
2. I'm really sick :(. my god daughter passed her cold onto me. when was the last time you were really sick? who made you sick?
I've had a mysterious brown smudge on my leg all day that I haven't bothered to wash off. What do you think it is?
I would like to go to Tournament C.
In order to attend Tournament C, it is required that I go to either Tournament A or Tournament B.
- Tournament A is the entire weekend after my sixteenth birthday (which falls on a wed) and the forms were due today. I can try to email someone and try to get it in tonight; or turn them in late. The location is not near where I live, but many friends are going and I can probably find a carpool.
- Tournament B is close to where I live. However, the date of Tournament B is a fundraiser that I am required to attend. I would be able to leave the fundraiser, earliest, at 7:00. I do not know yet when Tournament B will start. Few friends of mine are in attendance.
1.) HALP ME TQC, WHAT SHOULD I DO?!?!?!?!?
2.) I'm turning sixteen next week. What kind of jobs did you have around my age? Which were the best? Any recommendations? I hate kids, love reading, violin, and general tech dorkiness. :D
