I had one when I was little and I'd like to buy one now, but I have no idea what they are called.
I want to get my aunt a Christmas present. I can't afford anything really awesome because I'm fucking poor and she's rather well off so she can buy herself pretty much anything she wants anyway. Still, I thought about what I could get her as a nice gesture anyway and decided that a dog figure would be cool because she collects all these doggie figurines and has them all over her surfaces.
I want it to be cool, though. Funny. She'd dig something crazy, like a doggie figurine with devil horns or something. Does anyone know where I can get a doggie figurine with devil horns? Or, can you recommend a doggie figurine that is equally (or more so) amusing? It would pwn my day if you could help. Links to ebay auctions/websites quite welcome.
If you had to choose one insect that is the most beautiful, which one would it be? Why?
2. If your parents did divorce/separate, did you experience any negative effects? If so, what was most helpful in dealing with these effects?
Unrelated: I'm terrible at thinking up titles for things (papers, stories, whatever). Does anyone else have this problem?
I think that mine did. I'm majoring in biology, and an upper-level plant course is required for the degree. And naturally, before you can take an upper-level course you need to take an intro. The problem? The school no longer offers intro botany courses. W.T.F. My advisor suggested finding another college that offers it and taking it there, although she admitted that not many do. And left it at that. How the heck am I supposed to graduate?? If you were in this situation, what would you do?
Are you a neat or messy eater? Why?
My computer was the M200 and it had a really good Nvidia graphics card. For some reason (that I CANNOT COMPREHEND) the M400 (exact same, just new version of my old comp) has an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950...basically good for nothing. It won't play the Sims.
But the Sims isnt the only thing...the other computer im considering instead is much better in every single comparable way. (Except size.)
Weighing pros and cons, I should get the non-tablet, but for the classes that I've used the tablet, I honestly don't know how I would have gotten by without it. And I'm sure I'll have more classes like that over the next 5 semesters...
So should I get the good computer, or get the one thats not as good but probably more useful?
1b) If so, what kind?
1c) If not, why not?
2) Do you think people who do not wear deodorant are gross?
3) What is your favorite chocolate-covered snack?
4) Everyone at work really doesn't like the new general manager. Do you have any suggestions on how to drive him to quit? :P
Who was your first TV character crush?
My answer: Data from Star Trek. I think I was 9.
And for you dopes who haven't gotten with the program, why haven't you played Guitar Hero yet?!
I haven't slept yet :(
Have you ever fancied a non-human cartoon character? (animal, robot...etc)
Yeah. I liked Fry from Futurama....:S
I had this dream the government was tracking me down for my internet activities. I had to go to this "class" on reforming the way I presented myself online. It was really weird.
The vet referred her to a cat cardiologist.
I had no idea there were cat cardiologists!!
Have you heard of this?
Have you ever had to take your pet to a cardiologist?
I needs it. It had my money and I need my money to get gas for my car. And I need to get it before I have to go to work in which I start at 9:30 (am) :(
edit: I found it. In my bag I use for my computer and notebooks. I'd say book bag, but its not really. Well, maybe, cause its a bag and it carries books...
I should just go to work now. thanks TQC.
(And what field are you in?)
Same question only in reference to personality characteristics/morals/behaviors ect.?
I'm trying to really figure out how to word this but I'm not doing well this morning.
Is there a good website to help someone figure out what mental disorder they might have? I know the only way to get a true diagnosis is a psycholgist/ psychiatrist, but outside of that I wonder if you've found a website to be useful. This is NOT for self-diagnosis...just some insight.
I think things that are well known disorders like BPD might be a little bit over-self-diagnosed? sometimes. And so many of the disorders have the same symptoms...which is why having a profession asses the situation is important. But until I can get to a professional, I'd like to do some of my own research.
Do you have any disorders? If so, what do you have? Do you remember some sort of incident or turning point that made you go and get diagnosed? Have you been helped/ do you feel better?
Bonus points if you know who the title/ artist of the song in the title of this post. (Without googling.)
2)If you were to order something from Starbucks right now what would you want?
3)What's the most cluttered room in your dwelling?
my husband is a large baseball nerd, and i've found a fabulous deal on a PS2 for him for christmas--but i'm not sure which baseball game to get him. opinions please! :-D
For all you crafty people out there, what is the most complex thing you have ever Knit / Crochet / or sewn?
Pictures Please. I need the yarn / fabric muse to hit.
Who does these things!?
A friend of mine is of the mindset that if you don't get stellar grades, then you're not learning a damned thing. Do you agree with him? Or do you think I need to pull on my big scary combat boots and go kick his ass?
Do you agree with the way students are graded?
Do you think college admissions ought to be more based upon what you're capable of, rather than your grades? (For example, a good essay paired with a lower GPA)
Why can't I get my Spring semester books until a week prior to classes?
This is inspired by a friend, who at the age of five, planned to stay up with his cousins and mug Santa. When friend's father learned of this, he took all the toys away and took them back to the store. Harsh.
(I am trying oh so hard to be distracted from data entry - help!)
M.O.D. are you out there?
How do I reach you?
would you buy, as a gag gift, a tube of "boner toner" topical ointment?
if yes, who would you give it to as a gag gift?
1) Do you have a hot thing for authority figures (teachers, managers, officers, clergy, etc)?
2) Who are you attracted to?
Do you have any tips for surviving my first overnight shift?
I'll be working at a call center, so I'll be sitting on my butt and looking at the interwebs and maybe taking a few calls. My first shift is today from 4-midnight, but my shift tomorrow is 10pm-6am, with two exams before that, huzzah.
Difficulty: you must answer in the form of a haiku.
Mine: cookies candy pie

What should I rename myself?
I may or may not use whatever wins, but this is for fun, so meh. FUN FOR ALL!
I get the pleasure of throwing my future sister in law a bridal shower. It's going to be one of those that you play bridal shower games and eat...( I'd rather not have one that way, but that's the norm where I live)
She's very religious, so anything sexually oriented ( i.e. fun) is probably a no go. Besides from the fact that a lot of older people will be there ( whom are also very religious).
My questions are:
What is a good game to play at a shower?
What's something different that we could eat or drink?
Is it totally rude that she invited a ton of people already? ( like, 50?)
Would you rather:
do YOU know how many ceos were denied second yachts last year because of expiring tax cuts?
do you think the government is morally culpable in these ceos' lack of second yachts?
Sooooo...what is it that you hate about the Christmas?
Coworkers trying to shove cookies down your throat? Listening to the exact same Christmas songs on the radio over and over and over again? Spending your whole Christmas break traveling to visit relatives you don't even like?
What's your beef with Christmas? Inquiring minds want to know!
At 12.45AM, my friend called to tell me she just got off work and he told her I may or may not get called in because 2 other guys are coming in.
So I am very pissed. He lied to me right?
It was very unprofessional, he did not keep his promise.
And if he wasn't intending to hire 2 persons for the job, he could have told me on Sunday, right? Instead of saying the both of us have been selected.
If he ever calls to tell me I can go for the job, I'm gonna say no because I feel like a bloody backup.
Any similar experiences? What would you say if he called?
2.) who's your favorite actress?
2. What are some things you have broken in a fit of anger?

2. Are Shrinky Dinks the awesomest thing ever or what?
What will be your next purchase?
Have you ever made a significant amount from selling text books?
My last was a pair of $45 gloves for my boyfriend and my next will be my desk which will arrive after work! Hopefully I'll be home to pay for it.
My text books are paying for both the gloves and the desk :)
I would go try them on, only I'm in the wrong country now and she's just going to buy them and bring them with her when she comes to visit.
What really has -you- frustrated right now?
Does wool count as fur too?
1. Can anyone name all the justices without googling? :) You don't have to actually list them. I'm just curious if you could if you had to.
2. Do you think the Supreme Court just makes shit up sometimes? Any examples?
3. Who's your favorite justice evverrrr?

Do you know the cause of the genocide in Darfur?
Also.. do you think it is important for the U.S. to intervene?
Someone is willing to pay you $1,000,000 to work at McDonalds for the next 10 years, flipping burgers. You will get your wages on top of the million. You are not allowed to work on the side. Things to consider: not many will believe that you're being paid to work at a fast food joint and will probably assess you negatively for your decade-long tenure in the fast food industry. Also, consider how this will affect your resume and ability to be hired, post-McDonalds, since most of you will have spent your chief earning years wearing a paper hat.
Someone is willing to pay you $5,000,000 to be in 2girls1cup - the sequel. If you're male, obviously the title will change. However, the video will be fixed, where the cup of poo is exchanged for a cup of chocolate fudge when you have to eat it, and in the vomit scenes, you're simply gulping tapioca pudding and dropping it into each other's mouths. So, nothing that icky except having to kiss a girl. The downside is that everybody everwhere with internet access will see the video and you'll be regarded as an intensely disgusting, sick pervert. Friends and family included. You may tell them the truth behind the video, but would they believe you? Plus, you'll probably be recognized on the street at times
Someone is willing to pay you $1,000,000 to kill them. They're old, rich and want to die, but lack the courage to take their own life. If you accept the money, you have to shoot them on the side of the head, then place the pistol in their hand. You will be wearing gloves, and there will be a detailed suicide letter, written and signed by the man himself, so it should be an open and shut case. You just have to live with the memory of killing an old man and have that settle on your conscience. The money is paid out in cash and there will not be a paper trail leading back to you.
1. How much is your average electric bill?
2. How many people live in your household?
3. How high/low do you set the air/heat?
4. How high is your water bill?
5. Do you have a gas oven? How much is your gas bill?
6. Any random hidden costs you can think of? I already have internet and cable (or lack there of) calculated.
So, how long would a million last you?
1. On a resume, is it better to have it left-justified or center-?
2. I'm in the process of applying for financial aid online. They asked me about my parents' income for last year, their social security numbers, their taxes, etc. I currently live on my own. I'm not married or born before 1984. My parents won't give me their information. Is there any way to get around this? I called the helpline and they said there is not. Has this happened to anyone else?
TQC, would you feel like a mooch for benefiting from the rest of the units spending god knows how much to turn on their heat? We did turn it on ONE day last month and our bill went up something like $20 (it's gas heat), so uh, I don't think we'll be turning it on again anytime soon.
ETA: It's odd, too, because while we did put weatherstripping in the windows, we've got windows in each room which are old and wooden and on pulleys and are 60" W/ 100"L, plus it's a 5 room railroad style apartment so it isn't like it's small.
And since we're talking about cars, do you have your license plate number memorized? I haven't got my new car's license plate committed to memory yet - I keep mixing up the last 3 numbers with the ones from my old car.
1. Where should I go to eat with my family? I live in the Bay Area. It has to be under $20 per person, the cheaper the better. Or you can just recommend a type of food.
2. What should I ask for?
3. For my party, should I do a dress-up murder mystery or a scavenger hunt throughout the town or something else equally cool?
4. What do you associate with llamas?
Did it go away or are you/they stuck with it forever?
SO, TQC: Tell me all sorts of things about jobs!
What do you do?
What are my chances of getting a job that doesn't involve food, pays decent, and isn't super retail? (Answer: low.)
Should I work at a pool?
Should I work at the mall?
Should I open my own brothel?
Should I sell crack?
Should I work at a call center?
Should I make a kick-ass resume and pretend like I have any decent experience?
Why or why not?
How many days do you think it'll be before I'm sick of the smell of rosemary?
-eta- I probably won't "get used to" the smell. I'm really sensitive to scents.
How freaking awesome is that?
In what ways will Google take over the world next?
Should I have a sesame chicken salad or garlic chicken stir-fry for dinner?
90% of the time, I really am. Then I feel like an idiot.
(and yes, my own question did make me laugh so hard I peed a little. *shame*)
2.) Have you ever been scammed by a "toner phoner"? Is my boss going to fire me for getting us mixed up with one by accident?
ETA: Toner Phoner
3.) What's the deal with the guy on Jerry Springer who only has arms, a head, and part of a torso? I just caught a glimpse of him while flipping through channels yesterday and I can't quite figure it out. How does that work? It doesn't seem like there is enough room for all of his organs.
Are we using the wrong oil?
Google says that olive oil is good to use, but it was just getting too hot on quite a low heat.

Do you have to put references on your resume? Or I can I just say "available upon request?" Or should I not put anything?
Should we punish him or let it go?
I want to let it go, but I my husband said he is not allowed to watch t.v.

1) Are you aware of the difference between decongestants, antihistamines and other common cold/flu meds, what effects each has, and which brand names/generics fall into each category?
2) Do you read the active ingredient list on cold/flu medications so you know what it is you're taking?
What's the name of the group of people who come together in New York and do various activites?
eg; Listen to the CD players in music stores and then do a choreographed dance together
I think they also did this thing where they all listened to this like hour long instructional mp3 and followed all the instructions.
Some days I just feel like I could marry them. Does this make me weird TQC?
Do you ever forget to change where you're posting entries to?

My brother has been following some story about some feral dog that is a chow-wolf mix. There have been some blurry and grainy pictures of it. it is really huge and has recently been found dead. Aparently it wasn't like the typical feral dog that scavanges and has managed to take down a couple of sheep and even a horse on its own. I am curious and he doesn't remember where he found his source of info. Anyone know what I am talking about?

#4. Sing to every song as LOUD as you?
#5. Wait after to meet the band? (Anyone got any good stories?)
Does A Tear For Eddie make you sad when you listen to it?
I managed to save up enough money to get me through the year without being piss poor broke, and then my car broke down again today for a good $200 worth of repairs (about 1/6 of my funds, which will take me another month to put back into my savings). And the mechanic tried to tell me that I needed my fuel injection system flushed, when I had that done at the same shop just a month ago. >:O I am not happy.
In my high school, your friends usually 'wrapped' your locker with wrapping paper and gave you a balloon to carry around.
In the high school I work at, (it's usually the girls) get a button or something that says it's their birthday, and everyone gives them a dollar. They walk around with all of these dollar bills pinned to their shirt (in one spot, not like, all over).
Did you have any practices like this?
I had to go for a session and diagnosis with psychiatrists eariler today. I was really nervous about it because they freak me out with their long words and I don't want them to say something scary. On the way home, to cheer me up, I bought lots of pic and mix sweets and in a while I'm going to watch A Clockwork Orange and then Love Acutally with my boyfriend again, normally I want to watch them both 1000 times a day and he doesn't want to watch them with me for the millioneth time, but today is a special!
It was Dawson's Creek.
Do you think it's because of the lack of serious sex education or something else? What is going on?
Have you ever bought anything at cafe press?
Are you fed up with all the news on tv and in newspaper being bad news? (or haven't you noticed?)
Does it annoy you when in tv shows or movies or books or fanfictions, the food that they mention is just... wrong? Like, wrong era, something that the character would never cook, or the description is wrong, etc... It really annoys me. So much so that I created a comm for improving people's writing/bitching about this stuff.
What can I do to relieve stress or to relax, especially at work?
Did anyone find it changed their personality once they quit? It happened to me when I quit last year with the patch and to this lady I currently work with. I didnt feel like myself till I started smoking again. It turned me into a miserable and mean as hell person, even after not smoking for a few months. Id like this to not happen again. Do you have any recommendations?
Serious and Non-serious answers please.
A) A man who has just brutally murdered a complete stranger in a dingy, public washroom comes out of a trance with no recognition of the mangled, bloody corpse before him, nor any recollection of committing the gruesome act with his own hands.
B) Against his father's wishes, a young psychic prodigy leaves his life in the circus and sneaks into a summer camp where young psychics like him can learn to use their powers, and maybe someday become psychic secret agents. At the camp, a sinister force is stealing the brains from campers, leaving them mindless, TV-obsessed zombies.
2) Do you have the NFL Network?
3) Besides home, or maybe a parent,sibling or other relatives' house, where's your favourite place in the world to be?
NEVERMIND...my computer comes with easy transfer that will do it for me
2. i got a new laptop today...whats the best thing that happened to you today? the other best thing that happened to me was the american eagle holiday shopping party, which is as sad as it sounds.

2. What's your cure for insomnia?
3. What have you dreamed of lately?
I have a lovely blood test to look forward to tomorrow. What do you have to look forward to tomorrow?
Getting tipsy and spilling beer into the thing you were cooking doesn't count.
Someone caught it, and these girls want to keep it in a glass container as a pet.
I tried to tell people that they should let it go outside, because it doesn't belong in a glass container (it looks scared and sick).
Do you think the mouse should be let go? Why or why not?
2. I posted a question a few weeks ago asking what Microsoft had to do to help my dad because they lost his XBOX360. He got it for Xmas last year and it stopped working in October. There were no "red lights of death" or whatever you call it. He then spent a month trying to get answers to why it was knackered and Microsoft told him to send it to Germany for repair. He sent it on the 7th November and we still don't have it back. What's your horror stories about big companies ripping you off?
3. How are you bringing in the New Year?
I generally eat a little something sweet every day, like a cookie.
What was the last dessert you had, and when?
I had a bowl of Butterfinger ice cream earlier.
What is your favorite dessert?
Apple pie a'la mode tops my list, but I always forget how much I love Girl Scout cookies until I get a box (which is really once a year). :P
2- Double or nothing, red or black?
3- What is the worst picture you have of someone/yourself? Quality or pose, whatever. Either post the pic, or give a description. :)
Any ideas as to which I should buy?
Tomorrow AM I am going to get highlights, a hair cut (cut & style) and eyebrow wax (total: $120). I'd like to leave the girl (not the owner but a senior stylist) who does my hair a generous tip with the holidays being right around the corner... I'd normally opt for 20% as she always does a nice job.
And what about the person who takes out the foils and rinses my hair before the cut (usually not the stylist)? I mean, what's the appropriate tip for the person who shampoos your hair these days (if it helps a wash, cut & style is $35)?
are you not sure what haircut/hairstyle works best with your face shape? do you want some suggestions to take to your hairdresser next time?
would you like me to help? POST A PICTURE, and i'll take care of the rest.
2. Out of all your birthdays, which one was the worst? What made it bad/not awesome?
3. How was your day today?
This is the situation I'm in and my cousin already had a rap sheet and had been to prison for 2 years for assault. And I have told a few of my friends about that. I just can't decide if it would be weird for me to tell the people I hang out with about it. By the way, they won't find out through newspapers because my cousin doesn't share my last name. So, tell me what you would do in this situation. Thanks!
2 Do you go for people bigger/the same/smaller than yourself? Is how someone looks ,based on size, a big factor in your decision on whether you would date them?
3 Clubs, hearts, spades or diamonds?
4 What is your favourite savoury snack?
Today I was stuffing a wedding album at my job for a wedding photography office thing, and I saw a groom that looked like Bluebeard out of Fables. Should I be worried for the bride?
How old do you have to be before bumming off your parents is rock bottom pathetic? Background: He doesn't work, doesn't go to school-- in fact, dropped out of HS--, parties, consumes all my goddamn soda, and is annoying. He's been doing this for about, oh, three years. Am I the only one that sees this as ridiculous?
What's the strangest gift you've ever received?

How come powdered hot chocolate always tastes blah, no matter what brand I buy?
So what do you say, TQC? Shall I book a road test for sometime over my upcoming winter break? I'll be back in my hometown then with my mother and her car. Is it better to try and possibly/likely fail than to just let my licence wither away?
Update: All right, I'll do it, alas it won't be until January until after classes start so it'll be HORRIBLY INCONVENIENT. Blah.

2) If you decided to change your user name, what would you change it to?
I also popped it by mistake which I heard is really bad because it may develop into a worse infection. Should I get it checked out to be safe...?
I also have an engagement party to go to this weekend and would really like to wear my contacts for a couple of hours. Are there any really obvious NONONO's on that? And if a couple of hours seem harmless enough, what are some good tips on how well to clean them after I take them out?
I know styes are pretty common and I'm asking a lot of questions about them, but I'm pretty worried because this is the worst one I've ever gotten, and it has also lasted significantly longer.
Does anyone have ideas for things that I could do that would make the day a bit more exciting [I have classes to attend too, bummer :(] without going to effort and having to spend lots of cash?

How come the only attention I get from my cat is in the bathroom while I'm pooping? He always comes up and rubs on my legs, sniffs between the seat and the bowl, squints his eyes and runs. Otherwise, I'm invisible to him.
