Does your SO know your PIN? Did you give it to them or did they stare at you while you punched it in?
How much do you have?
And I'm talking about the stuff that falls from the sky when it's cold out. Not any other kind.
[Edit: In Syracuse, I'm guessing there's about a foot on the ground]
How did you find out?
If you suspected you were being cheated on, how far would you go to find out?
Would you ever smell yo man's dick? Guys, have any of your girlfriends put you to the sniff test?

2007, was it a good or bad year for you? (i know we still have some weeks left to go of it.. but whatevr)
I've applied to 13 internships, reached level 47 on Bloons, and just created tqc_gifts instead of writing a paper due Thursday...
2. Was it obvious this post was just a thinly disguised promotion of tqc_gifts?
Yes, but you'll be thanking me if people who don't mind gift questions flock there and keep them from clogging up TQC. If you see people asking gift questions here in the next couple weeks feel free to direct them over there.
3. I'm in my senior year of college and don't have to take many credits next semester. Am I crazy to be considering doing a 2-hour-each-way train commute into the city twice a week for an internship? Should I only do it if I get an internship that's totally badass? I'd really like the experience and the addition to my resume, but the thought of having to be not only awake but on a train by like 6:30 AM is kind of making me nauseous.
What kinds of thoughts?
(Positive/Negative, "I wonder what they are doing/thinking", "I hate that bitch", "This would be more fun with Dave here", etc.)
Do you have any friends that you DON'T think about unless they're right there or someone else mentions them?
My sister pointed these jeans out to me in a magazine ad and said she really wanted a pair of jeans like that. I really want to get these jeans for her for Christmas, but I have no idea where to find them.
I tried going to the website for the company (www.rampage.com) but I couldn't find that style of jean anywhere. If anyone knows the name for that type/style of jean, that'd really help me out in searching for it.
Thanks in advance for any insight.
Do you think it's possible to remain close to someone that you haven't had any contact with in a long time?
a) One year has gone by with no contact?
b) Five years?
c) Ten years?
How did it happen?
Do you like it?
Have you ever had more than one session in a day?
If you don't have a pet, post a picture of something you would want for a pet.
Can you name any TQCers that have pets?
Should I stay home and work from here, or drag my lazy butt out and go into the office today?
If I do stay home should I really do the work or look for a new job?
Or just say screw it all and play WoW all day?
I'm craving one, but the nearest Jamba Juice is two and a half hours away. :(
How's your local weather person? Good? Bad? Indifferent? Accurate? Not?
Or even worse, perky?
or, if this does describe who you are, then you probably know someone described as such...
i used to be a "book geek", a "film geek", then a "tv geek" but now i'm pretty much a "lego geek"...
have you ever met, or know of a "furry geek"?
nothing wrong w/that, to each his own, i figure it's just that i've never met a "furry geek" but my life is not over yet, so there is still time...

Is there really that few of good people in the world?
1. Is it totally inappropriate to ask if I can bring my boyfriend to help me babysit on Saturday night?
(Two things to know: I only get to see my boyfriend once a week, due to school and the fact we live an hour away from eachother. Secondly, and more importantly, I've known this family for about four years. I dated their son in high school, and we ended on bad terms, but recently the mother called and asked me to be their nanny since I have experience. I've ended up seeing my ex since then, and we're okay now, but he's going to be at the house, I believe, and with his new girlfriend. That doesn't bother me, and it won't bother him to see my new boyfriend, but it might be weird to the mom having my boyfriend there. I think.)
(ANOTHER eta) I probably should have put more time into explaining. I mean, I've known the family forever, me and the guy are friends now, and have been for a few months. I've even been to their house recently just to hang out, before this babysitting thing. I basically grew up in their home, during high school at least, and it's a really casual place for me now. Anyways, I don't know if that makes a difference. Proooobably not.
2. I'm getting gifts for my coworkers, and I'm having a hard time with one. He loves Bob Dylan, and I know really nothing about the artist. I'm fairly certain he already has all his albums. Are there any really good DVDs of his concerts, or anything interesting I could get him?
And one with no advice:
3. How is your relationship with your boss/coworkers? Are you close? Do you hate them?
4. Do you think you could be a candidate for What Not to Wear?
B. Is the Earth flat?
How much of your life did you have to devote to that question to be able to answer it?
C. Wikipedia says Sherri Shepherd is a comedian. Is this part of her comedy routine?
D. Do you know anyone stupid enough they could be a part of The View?
E. What kind of things have they claimed?
1. In unrelated news, yesterday some dude spoke out against the Yucca Mountain project calling it "environmental racism". I can understand how the idea of raping the land of not-white-folk would be considered racism, but what is environmental racism?
Also, the Associated Press is calling this guy a "Nevada Indian" or an "American Indian".
2. Is this really the current PC term for that guy?
3. What terminology would you use to describe the dude?
4. Do you support Yucca Mountain and/or the expansion of nuclear power in your locale?
And I'm sitting in the house until 7 o'clock tonight.
What should I do with my time?
i just found out flogging molly is playing here the day after my birthday--however, last year, we went to cincinnati to see them for my birthday. major advantage this time: it's in my town, so we don't have to drive 2.5 hours each way.

under what circumstances would you get involved with a married man about ten years older than you?
what if involved just meant seeing him at work and flirting a LOT?
what if it meant seeing him at work, flirting a lot, and him being super huggy and touchy with you?
[aka: i'm making dumb decisions and want someone to tell me that i'm not actually this dumb.]
Besides duct tape, what are some ways we could attach lights to the Jeep without damaging the paint or making it undrivable (we're going to decorate here and THEN drive the 40 miles to the parade)? The roll bars and stuff are easy to do, because we'll just wrap those. It's the metal part that we're trying to figure out and do without duct tape.
You go on vacation, and you let a friend petsit for you. You come back home and find that your pet appears to be really, really tired, for it doesn't wake up when you call it. Also, your tv is missing. Worried and confused, you call your friend, and find out that your pet got out while you were gone and was hit by a car. Not knowing what to do, your friend sold your tv and had your pet stuffed. When you had came home, you were petting your pet's dead body, which was stuffed to look like it was sleeping. How do you feel about your friend?
2. A woman I work with got into SEVEN car accidents on her way to work this morning! What is the most number of accidents you have been in over the course of one day?
3. Who ate my cheese?!?!?!?!?!
Even though I don't quite like her, I watch Rachael Ray because it's on between the morning and the noon news here, and I need to keep the tv on something at work.
Yesterday she supposedly had the "biggest mystery taster ever" and it was pre-empted for the president.
1. Who the hell was it? My googlefu is failing me so severely. I can't find ANYTHING that will tell me.
2. If you had to just leave a tv on behind you all day, what would you put it on?
3. What are you having for dinner tonight?
A friend likes using that phrase but he wants to use a different one that means the same thing, so that it doesn't just sound like he's referencing Family Guy. Know of any/come up with any?
I have a pretty thick accent (in both speech pattern and usage), so "articulate" is a bit of a stretch, on a good day.
I'm tired of getting tongue-tied trying to think of a word I know-that-I-know-and-just-can't-retrieve,
What can I do to expand my vocabulary and make things easier to think of and retrieve from memory?
(and no, I haven't been around much lately for the last couple/few months... Hi, everybody.)
I was five or six, and my mom tells me I worked it out from watching nature shows. I wandered in and informed that she and my dad had "mated" twice (to produce me and my sister. I was a bit older before finding out it was supposed to be done for fun).

Also I know there have been a million acne posts in the time I've been here.. But meh. What has worked for you personally to get break outs on odd parts of the body to stop happening and go away? Out of the millions of "fixes," which haven't worked for you?
Last one: TQC, why am I dumb? Is it because I'm a woman?
What's the biggest change you've made in the past 6 months?
For those who don't know what it is, you have to go along wearing a piece of clothing (Including shoes and accesories) in each colour of the Rubix Cube( so say a top in blue, pants in red, shoes in yellow etc). During the night, you have to exchange clothes with other party members, until you're wearing only one of the colours.
Would you go to one?
Or does this just seem absolutely retarded to you?
EDIT: And yes, alcohol is present.
---if so, how do you react?
Do you think it's because they recognize you from the internet?
edit: When I go out by myself, I like to stare at people. Even after they notice, I keep staring. Good times.

There's this guy who seems to be crazy about me but he's taking it really slow-- we've gone out a few times and talked on the phone a few times but this has been happening over the course of a month which is slow for me. I do see him almost every day of the week so maybe he doesn't need to see me more than that, but those situations are not very intimate.

The local bagel shop in my hometown makes an AWESOME pesto bagel.
The landlord has a cable modem in her apt. and a wireless router. Unfortunately either the topography or the god-knows-what of the house is such that me and my ground-floor neighbour get absolutely horrible wireless connectivity down here. We've both tried different wireless cards, wireless retransmission devices, etc. Nothing really helps. Also, sometimes the signal is somewhat ok (45%), and often the connection just dies... and comes back in a minute or so.
So... any ideas on how to fix this? We've thought about running cat5 cables from upstairs.. but that's sort of ugly and we haven't yet talked to the landlord about it. Aside from that, what can we do? (We do have other cable jacks on the ground floor.. is it possible to hook up another cable modem to one? How does that work?)
Thanks for any suggestions.
On a different note, I need ~*advice*~. How do I tell/make it clear to a guy friend to get off my nuts, that I'm not interested in dating him?
-As awesome and whatever as I am, being tactful is not my strong point. BUT I'm pretty sure that I will have to suck it up and do it if he persists. Thanks.
I'm flying home 2 days before Christmas, and I want to do SOMETHING for my family to make up for the fact that I probably can't BUY them presents.
1. What are some interesting gift ideas that don't involve spending a lot of money?
(could include DOING something, or MAKING something..)
One year I gave them a "pass" for babysitting whenever they wanted me to over the course of a month. (I have two baby sisters).. I can't repeat that again, cause it's already been done. I want to do something creative!
2. What is the best gift you've ever received? Why was it the best?
If you're into trying new things, why aren't you like all the other great ladies who swallow?
IT'S LIKE HAVING A VAGINA ON YOUR FACE
2 - What should be that country's national sport? I don't mean their actual national sport - make something up.
3 - Are leastlikely and I the only ones who would totally go and see Hanson?
1 - I'm from New Zealand, living in Australia.
2 - NZ's national sport could be competing against Australia in any and all areas. Australia's could be jumping on the bandwagon.
I'm tired of waiting for my grades to post. I'm fairly sure I got a 4.0 (woo!) but am not 100% positive. I JUST WANNA KNOW.
Also, do you live near your college/university? Does it make you sad when everyone goes home for break and no one's left to hang out with?
If you have monthly disposables, do you wear them just for the month or can you get away with wearing them longer?
Do you have a piggy bank, or do you keep all of your money in the big regular bank/under your mattress/in your bra/etc?
How long are your showers usually?

2a. If so, what was your impression of the staff?

Wait, you are probably all Americans. Am I just kidding myself in assuming you know who Kylie Minogue is?
Ok maybe that's not her in the picture.
Sorry for assuming you guys wouldn't know her. I thought she was mainly based in Australia, and I didn't realise she had reached your shores.
I usually like to make/bake at least three kinds of treats for the holidays. So far, I've done cranberry-pumpkin bread and holly clusters (like rice krispie treats only with corn flakes).
I'm stuck for some reason on what to do for a third, so help me decide, please. Should I do -
cookies? (If this, please tell me what kind.)

What's your favorite bumper sticker?
For the next month, you have to eat foods of only one color. Just because. 30 days, only one color for your food, and you are not permitted to use food dye or to change the color of your food through condiments or seasonings (though you may use them). The initial color is counted, not what happens to it after preparation. All toppings on the food that do not apply to that color (like lettuce if you didn't pick green or olives on your pizza if you picked orange) must be plucked off. This does not apply to your drinks. What color do you pick for your food for the next month?
Food you'd consider using during sex (think 9 1/2 weeks) for erotic manipulation and consumption
Ladies, you've been eating more cucumbers, carrots or bananas (whichever one you like best). Let's assume you have a roommate. You've been buying small bags of this produce for yourself. After a few weeks, you walk in on your roommate masturbating with one of your produce. She said she's sorry and she'll put it back when she's done. Outraged, you tell her that's disgusting and she should literally go fuck herself. She then admits that she's been masturbating with your produce for weeks now and putting it back, with you none the wiser. What happens now?
2. I download torrents and some of them are RAR files and I can't open them, How do I get these files opened and on my iTunes?

How did it end between you two?

Also, does anyone have any experience using it and if so what did you think? Any information would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance TQC!!!
My site is doing a themed week next week called "A Week of Giving"
Basically, what I want to know is if any of you have gone on trips with groups like habitat for humanity, alternative vacation, anything with your church?
We're looking to interview some people to tell how going on these trips changed their lifes, or opened their hearts or whatever.
Comment or email: email@example.com
xposted a couple places because I can't find people who have done these trips! sheeesh!
Do you think it's going be brilliant or turn out to be utter crap?
I absolutely cannot find anyone else who has even heard of it. D:
I heard on the radio that a supermarket in Manhattan called Balducci's is having a deal for ham. Three signs were made and each said that ham would make a delicious dinner for Hanukkah.
This semi-cute guy just came in here to deliver stuff and I was giggling at cat macros. Also my feet are cold so I put on these super sparkly socks. I'm wearing a skirt and they don't really work together.

While I was in high school, a kid (C) told the principal I was doing drugs and threatening to kill myself. Despite the fact that I wasn't, I still had to go through an intervention and weekly visits to the school therapist, as well as getting checked by the school nurse for signs of drug abuse or cutting. C was sent away by his parents to live in another state, and was just released from rehab recently and moved back. My friend M is going to have a party for her birthday, and invited me to go. M's friend V is friend's with C and has said she's going to bring him. I don't like V or C, but I want to go out and see my friends.
Should I go to the party? Should I ask that C not be allowed? What if I go and C shows up uninvited? I can't guarantee that I can hold my temper around him, and I don't want to ruin my friend's birthday. What should I do?
I was stirring the sauce with hot water, and it smells.. weird. fermented, almost. do you think it might just smell this way, or do you think that it's somehow gone bad while sitting in my freezer?

since this weekend, the signal tends to randomly flake out... surfing the web goes incredibly slow or not at all, sometimes pages load and sometimes they don't, sometimes my messages send and sometimes my friend doesn't get them. and then there are times like this where it seems like nothing has happened.
i've reset the modem, unplugged it from the power supply and let it sit, and earlier today it didn't initialize before i left for school. mom called the cable company and they said their end was showing no power to the modem (yes, it was plugged in). she comes home and it works fine, then it flakes on me.
when i try to log onto msn and it's down, i'll run the troubleshooter and it always comes up with the "key ports" having problems. i tell it to repair them, it does, and sometimes -- voila. connection. other times, not so much. it worked just now.
so, tqc. is it my computer, or did i fry another modem?

For me it's "The Rules of Attraction." When it first came out I thought it was just a stupid teen movie, then I saw it and realized it was not that at all. Now it's one of my favorite movies ever. I've owned the book for year too and I haven't gotten around to reading it yet but I probably will while at jury duty tomorrow.
