Introduce please. I need a good cry :)
For example, if your document is 10 pages long, with Adobe Acrobat 8.1 and other a couple other .pdf software I've tried, you can only view, at the most, two pages side by side. I want to be able to view three, four, five pages side by side. The reason why is the document is a picture.
What song would immediately turn you off? I also think that they're both international students, so it would have to be something universal
So I'm thinking of making a new deviantART account for myself, I've had mine for about four years and am really not a fan of the username anymore. What should by new DA username be? serious or not :)
Also, I was just scratching my ankle and discovered this partially-healed (as in, maybe from this morning) cut. I don't remember cutting my foot today. Do any of you ever find mysterious wounds in strange places?
Why did my suitemates leave their bedroom window open before they moved out?
2. What is it (if not obvious) and why'd you choose it? Beyond "I liked it" lol This is starting to sound like an essay question. Oops.
3. Random, nonsense icons FTW or FTL (See: my icon)?
4. Any interesting Youtube clips you'd recommend? I'm bored, as you probably guessed.
( Collapse )
people who have had their dicks sucked: do you like the person blowing you to spit or swallow?

And as if that wasn't enough, even DS's are out of stock practically everywhere, with little likelihood of stock before xmas...
I'm rather drunk right now. It's lovely. It's also snowing, but that's not really relevant.
I'm sick of living with my roommates at the moment. What's the typical consequence for breaking your lease five months early?
Should I just go live with another friend for awhile and get away from it all?
Why is it so impossible for me to say no when people ask me to do something?
Why can I type so well when I'm drunk?
Why doesn't anyone want to be in a relationship with me?
Why does he send me such confusing signals?
Why does she ignore me?
Why do I even care?
Why won't anyone hire me?
What can I do for some extra money?
I like Smirnoff....
This whole content-filtering system that's suddenly been put into place here on LJ with no warning. Then shortly thereafter, we discover that LJ has been purchased by a Russian company that some LJers allege to be pro-Putin.
Is it possible that a more nefarious use of this technology might be filtering pro-democracy journals on the Russian side of LJ?
It is supposed to snow tomorrow so the grocery stores are nuts. Why do people rush to the stores like there is going to be another ice age when the weather person mentions snow? Is the end nigh or something?
How do you feel about them making a comeback? I am currently watching the second Chia pet commercial within five minutes.
(if you celebrate Christmas) Do you have your tree up yet? When you think of the holidays, what pops into your head?
no - i should probably get on that, though, huh?
The smell of Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner all through the house *sigh*
If you could have one thing right now, what would it be?
I really want to drink a Shirley Temple, I have no idea what brought on this craving.
2.Did it taste weird the first time you had it since its carbonated?
3.Whats your favorite brand of bottled water?
4.Have you ever been to build a bear?
5. My bestfriends birthday is a month after christmas, Should I get her a small present or 2 for christmas and then hold out for the bigger one for her birthday?
I wear an Israeli gas mask I bought at an army supply store when I chop onions. It works!
Are there any other cute symbols I should know about?
What can you do?
Explain the Russia thing to me. What's going on?
I have some weird ass sleep schedule nowadays where I don't go to bed before 4am. I'm also enjoying the movie plot in 2 sentences post.
What do you cook when naked, if anything?
I'm submitting my resume to a temp agency. Should I put my current part time retail job on there, or should I just omit that and keep to my office-related experience?
Not having a full-time job for 2 months is lose :(
What should I do??
(It's past 4am right now, but I'm not planning on going to sleep.)
what does it feel like?
how about a jellyfish?
[from Fish Farm. Yes it's terrible, I didn't come up with it, and we live in a fishing town...]
What should we change our name to, TQC?
Who are your favourite comedians? Bonus points for chucking me a video of them performing.
( Collapse )
What is your favorite kind of pie?
Mine is pecan. Apple is a close second.
2. What celebrity would you love to punch in the head?
Rest of TQC: What is your dream job?
Apparently I look better with my hair down. Do people tell you you look better with your hair up or down?
Without looking it up - what is your working knowledge of what zeitgeist means?
Were you in honors/ gifted classes in high school?
If someone insults your physical presence, how does this affect your feelings about your personality?
Which one has been your favorite?
What is the worst horror movie you've ever seen?
What do you think of Bloodhound Gang's remake?
(Someone flagged it because ...Oh nooooos...It suggests some sexual content and some profanity)
So only if you have an account will you be able to view it, along with if you're 18+...
What do you think of censorship? Should children or what this country deems as children be sensored to such an extent
as opposed to being shielded from violence on television, the news, etc.?
I found it to be hilarious and watched it a few times in a row because well it makes me laugh and laughing is one of the things we should participate in every day! ^.^
America is just too much of a dictatorship. It's hypocritical to limit what children can and cannot watch such as some sexual content or adult language while there's MTV and the freaking Channel 9 news showing some dude shooting up a school.....
2. Do you or someone you know actually celebrate festivus?
3. Is this horrifying to you?
4. c/d > y/n, c/d?
I have a concert tomorrow night, and classes today... the soreness snuck up on me last night, and it sucks. I already took vitamin C and gargled with warm salt water... I'm just curious what everyone else does. It's definitely not bad enough to go to the doctor, but it's irritating.
This isn't intended to spark a debate. I'm just curious. Let's play nice.
1) Are there any Athiests that celebrate Christmas?
2) Do you consider Christmas a religious holiday?
3) Do you write "Christmas" or "X-mas"?
I think Judaism is awesome and really interesting and I respect it a lot.
I won two Fandango tickets off of Blingo. What movie should my husband and I go see?
A few times, I'll be typing something. For example, when I'm typing my username and password into a website that we use to log our projects (what's going on with them, the time we've spent on them, etc.), out of nowhere, my browser windows will disappear. I usually have three up at any given time.
I am 100% absolutely positive it is NOT a keystroke that I'm accidentally hitting. I thought for awhile that it might be, but I was typing my password into the work website earlier today when it happened again. And my password for that website is all lowercase with only four digits - every other character is a letter.
So what gives? It's not a keystroke, definitely. I've had IT look into it and they can't find anything - virus, spyware, whatever. I work for a very large company, so I'm fairly certain that they're all up-to-date on their software, firewalls, and whatever other computer security options there are out there. Help??? It doesn't happen too often, but it's annoying!
2. What are you doing for New Years?
I'm going to see The Disco Biscuits, Keller Williams, ?uestlove, and a bunch of other bands at the Tweeter Center in NJ! I'm SO excited!!! :)
Do you generally like them?
I don't know, I use them, but the posters are so proper about it all.
2. What is something you had in younger years that you don't have now that you miss? (I don't mean objects really, I mean parts of your self.)
3. What is something that you have gained (again in your self) that you didn't have when you were younger?
What about Bukowski?
If so, will you tell me some of your favorite works by them?
Are you a pretentious asshole?
In your opinion, what makes someone a pretentious asshole?
Will you mend my heart?
[EDIT: dear everyone here... thank you so much for being wonderful and amazing and spectacular and all that stuff. You won't believe it, but I actually *feel better* TQC DOES have the answers to everything!]
Will you tell me an interesting family story (doesn't have to be about aforementioned oldest relative)?
My great grandfather turns 95 on Wednesday! He used to paint houses with his father in the 1920's in NYC. Some of their biggest clients were mobsters. He said they used to ride to jobs in the mobster's limousines and would have to duck their heads in case of drive-bys.
be as honest as you like (I swear I won't fuss and flounce ;))
I know I need more variety but I'm only just now getting back into photography and I've been short of time
+ what's your favorite adjective at the moment?
I got wheedled into going to mass yesterday, and I saw some guy do it. I was torn between telling him off and shooting him a thumbs up.
So, what's the lamest excuse you've ever gave for being late to work? (Real and made up excuses both acceptable)
2. How long have you been on LJ?
3. Are there any communities that have made a significant impact on your life? If yes, which ones and why?
1. Yep. I record them in a dream LJ
2. 5+ years
3. Yes. There are several eating disorder communities that were a lifesaver for me (providing not just support but friendships that have lasted years) *[I now consider myself to be recovered], and various "Whoa! I'm not alone!" communities (like csp_support and sensedefence)
edit: If yes, what's the highest amount of extra bucks you have received?
I work at CVS, and I've only gotten a extra buck thing for 50 cents. =[

Are there any products available in Australia to make artificial Christmas trees smell like real ones? What and where?
Which one do you like better?
How much do you like sending Christmas/ Holiday cards!?
Anything chapping your ass right now? Want to tell me about it?
Feels like it's time for another "where have they gone??" post, so...
What has happened to previously often seen (or at least semi-regular) tqcrs:
(I know the last two still make infrequent appearances, but hardly ever these days, it seems.) And of course, lierre is still mia these days.
Do you know what is happening with any of them, and do you miss them? I rather miss all of these that I have listed here, esp the last three.
Who else have you noticed gone, and do you miss them? Is there anyone you see infrequently that you'd like to see around more?
are you scared of anything completely ridiculous?
for example, i'm scared of sleeping. what about you?
where's the beef?
What is, in your opinion, the worst part about moving?
What is the best part?
What is your favorite way to enjoy peanut butter?
Why do my neighbors hate me?
Last weekend, while working out in the yard, the neighbors called animal control saying I left my small chihuahua, Tot, out in the freezing cold. My mom, my cousin and my sister's boyfriend were all in the front yard raking up leaves and the dog was watching us and playing; even the guy that came out asked if our neighbors hated us. This morning I woke up and found a yellow flyer in the screen door because of "A complaint of alleged ordinance violation." And he also checked the box that says "This case will not be closed until contact is made in person." I'm scared to call!
Are they gonna take away my precious doggiez?
Or is this payback for the one time my cat shit all over the inside of my neighbor's van because they locked him in there?
Do you think I did some massive damage?
How will I know?
What do I do now?
2. Any pictures you want to show off?
3. What injuries do you have right now?
Edit 4. Are in you in the New York area/can easily travel to New York? Do you like to see Broadway shows?
Considering the age of the CD (predating WMP itself), I was surprised to find that the program still had the name of the CD, a track list and a picture of the cover graphic appearing. Since the CD was released pre-WMP, I would have assumed there was no way of encoding these details in the CD for a program that would be released a few years later.
Does anyone know how/why this could have occurred?
2. Why has my dog not learned to not eat the cat food after being punished for eating it at least three times a week for the last 14 years?
3. Why does my dog still eat the cat food at least 3 times a week even though for the last 14 years it's made him vomit an hour after eating it?
Whatcha listening to?
-1273 and loading more.
-The Exies. A little late 90's alt.
If you are in a relationship, are you satisfied with your partner? If not, why are you still with them?
Describe your perfect date.
<lj-cut text=Mah answers>
1. Trust, loyalty, spontaneity, passion, and similar interests.
2. Not all that satisfied. Annnd I have no idea why we're still together.
3. (Since it's the season), Walking in the snow, coffee, and maybe some spontaneous sex, cuz I'm just that kind of person.
(I work retail, and I fear for my soul.)
I decided to backup my journal on LJ Book, which I've been looking at for a while but after last night decided to actually use. As it turns out, my journal is 2,225 pages long in a 9 pt. font -- but 83 pages of the .pdf is just the table of contents. This Christmas will mark my seventh year with this LJ.
I guess I need to do some editing before I get this thing printed out, eh?
SHOULD someone knock you down a few pegs?
Have you been naughty or nice this year? Would you be getting a big sack of coal, or a bunch of presents beneath your hypothetical tree? Why?
[ If Hypothetical Real Santa came to my house, I think he'd stop being jolly for a long enough time to put 5 pounds of coal in a burlap sack. And I don't think he'd be content to simply leave the sack near my stocking. I really feel like he'd sneak into my room and beat me with it. ]
What do you think causes aggression in the U.S. population?
What can be done about this?
2)How often do you vacuum? What kind of vacuum do you have?

For me it was:
"well it wouldn't have killed you to come over and use your snow blower on me!" my female co-worker to a male co-worker
Say you live with roommates in Atlanta. And you need to move, because a roommate left and you can't afford things, among a few other reasons. So you're packing, but you don't know where to go.
Do you move in with your (newish) boyfriend, up in Woodstock about 45 minutes away (where he owns a house that he, 2 of his sisters, and his mother live), despite the fact that you just (4 months ago) broke an engagement and your family thinks it's a bad idea, and you don't know a soul (save said bf) in Woodstock?
Do you stay between Atlanta and Woodstock and get an apartment that you can't really afford and beg your family to help, despite the fact that they may not and you could end up way over your head if you don't find a new job that can pay for things like that?
Or do you say screw everyone to hell, pack your things, take the grand you have in savings and go start over in Chicago?
Because if I choose option A, my family and one of my best friends will all be very upset with me.
Option B, and I'll be poor forever, potentially screw myself over, and said boyfriend will be sad and lonely.
Option C, and everyone will be super hurt and pissed, but I could at least get away from all of this.
I don't know what I want, and I can't make everyone happy.
Also, what is the most difficult decision you've ever had to make in your life?
Why or why not?
*I had a dream I got it done last night and now I can't stop thinking about it. I need guidance, forreal.
2. How long is the perfect nap for you?
( Collapse )
Have you ever kept a gift you originally intended for someone else because it was just that effing awesome? What was it?
It must rhyme! Bonus points for incorporating as much Christmas/ holiday stuff as you can (green, red, elves, sugar and spice, ribbons, trees, etc etc.)
(I'm doing this right now and while it's actually pretty fun, I feel so dumb!! So I figured I share in the holiday fun spirit..)
do you ever laugh at "inappropriate" times during a movie?
At what point would you assume that your pet would never return?
Why do you think a person is still posting signs like this?
If the cat was found back in 1995 and lived in a loving home for the last 13 years, do you think it ought to be returned to its original owner?
1) If you were at a friend's house for Thanksgiving dinner and you found a dead cockroach in your salad, what would you do?
2) Assuming that complete recovery were instantaneous, would you be willing to accept a year of complete paralysis below the neck to prevent the otherwise certain extinction of the blue whale?
3) If you had to spend the next two years inside a small but fully provisioned Antarctic shelter with one other person, whom would you like to have with you?
4) Would you have one of your fingers surgically removed if it somehow guaranteed immunity from all major diseases?
I haven't done anything radical on my system, I have been doing a little anal-retentive cleaning of the hard drive, so it's possible that I might have deleted something by accident that may be causing the problem.
Ok, so. Has anyone has this problem? How did you resolve it? What does it sound like is wrong?
Do you sell them online (through abebook/whatever)? Burn them? What's the most creative/unusual thing you've done?
I was thinking of using them for wrapping paper for Christmas. Pretty expensive wrapping paper albeit, but this semester has sucked and I never want to look at these books again.
Do you have pieces that allow you to mix & match and create outfits, or are you more of a "this goes with this, that goes with that" girl/guy?
Do you wear everything you own regularly, or do you just stick with a few things for daily wear?
Lots of black.T-shirts, jeans, hoodies, henleys...
I always aspire to have a really coordinating wardrobe that i can mix & match, but i somehow always end up with a basic top and jeans type of closet. Arg.
I tend to stick with a few things. I'm boring.
yes, my dad gave one to me.
2)what do you think about bananas?
I hate them, they make my tongue itch.
3)Do you call it spinning or cycling?
Cycling, because spinning sounds odd.
I usually make rice pudding. I need to find the recipe for it again, but I liked the one I made last year, and it was out of a French cookbook. I hope I kept it.

Third option: or do I just change my name, assume a disguise, and hightail it to Mexico and live out the rest of my life on a sunny beach in Acapulco where no one cares whether or not I finished my senior year of college?
Happy Christmas or Merry Christmas?
2. How do you feel about the overall quality of womens' clothing compared to mens'? I've seen a big difference lately, in the sense that a lot of womens' clothing is shoddily made and ugly, with form being valued over function, but I might be hallucinating.
2. Favorite kind of berry?
3. What are you procrastinating from at the moment?
4. Favorite television show at the moment?
I've been staring at the wall for almost two hours and I think I'm more wide awake than I was when I laid down.
I've guzzled warm milk...I can;t have chamomile tea because the pregnancy gods belive chamomile is evil and want to punish us...or some such...I've counted to 100...I've tried laying perfectly still and nothing works. My brain will not shut off
I don't drop them ever and take care of it cause my music is kinda like another form of oxygen for me.
I have the Apple Protection Plan so it doesn't cost for me to send it in and such (I just had to buy the plan) but not having my music on the go is killing me
Do you think Steve Jobs hates puppies and that the ipod is not of a good quality?

Wait until my friend's concert is over (2 more hours) and go somewhere better farther from campus
2. When do you have finals? How many? Have you studied yet?

4. Will you show me a picture of something silly/weird/funny/shocking?
I feel like I have to be out of the house by 2pm at the latest in order to feel like I can accomplish anything. So I have to up be up and dressed by like, 1. Occasionally I might do something later in the day on a whim but only if I've already been up and dressed for the day. If 2 o'clock rolls around and I'm not up and dressed, it's not going to happen.
My mom, on the other hand, feels like she has to do everything before 9am so she has to be up and showered by like, 6. Crazy lady. 10 o'clock rolls around and it's "too late to do anything" WTF? Some stores are just barely opening! Do people really get up that early if they don't have to? lol.
The Question Club, if you were going to cast as actress, dead or alive, as Lady MacBeth, who would you choose and why?

If so, you can choose any celebrity to work for. Who do you choose? Why?
What is the most amusing thing that's happened to you lately?
1. Where should I go if I leave LJ?
2. In Soviet Russia, do terms of service really violate you, as I read on the best macro I've seen today?
3. I'm looking for a job. I intentionally moved to a place where I could get any shitty job and still make ends meet. This is good because I'm under-qualified for non-shitty jobs. So, how do you get shitty jobs in December when your work history makes you look both slightly over-qualified and like a flight risk?
-I realised while watching the OC (shuddup) graduation ep that I won't be graduating with my friends, but just people who kind of pay attention to me. It just won't be the great big fun thing I've always thought it would.
2. What was the last thing to make you happy?
-Like 5 of my friends are coming from SD to have a slumber party with me, so that makes it better!
3. In cars, why is there D AND D2? When would you put it in D2?
When do you remember music being such an important part of your life?
who have been you big obsessions?
My first big love was Boyzone around 10/11. I was convinced I'd marry Ronan Keating..I was just one massive teenybopper with a bad case of the boyband love.
I was about 14 when I heard silverchair for the first time, Miss You Love got me hooked and that was that. Superfan, forums, blog titles relating to everything silverchair, paying crazy amounts to go see them, Daniel John posters.. obsession with everything Australian.. which led to me meeting my boyfriend- the only reason I introduced myself to him was because I overheard his Australian accent and my heart jumped into my mouth..haha..
I think my next big love will be Brand New, it's on the way..
Pictures, sil vous plait?
Also, how comfy is your desk chair?
What color is it?
2) How many people are on your Christmas shopping list this year?
3) What is the most expensive gift you plan to buy?
4) Have you seen Perfume: The Story of a Murderer? If yes, what did you think?
5) Who is the first person you call when you're troubled/excited/depressed/whatever? Or does it depend on the situation?
6) Spending $85 on a robe/bathrobe type thing, only to be worn around the house: ridiculous or worth it?
edit: it's actually $98 and a picture of it is here.
It doesn't seem like it would, but hey, I heard it on the internet. It must be true.
what's the meanest possible thing you can think to say to someone?
What is the biggest stress for you this holiday season?
Do Facebook and Myspace create too much social drama? How has it caused drama in your life?
