i kinda want to get away from cookies, maybe a cake or something.
I'm going to a dessert party and the birthday boy is a vegan.

Mine might be pot_heads
2. best anti spyware program?
2. what time do you usually go to sleep?
3. are you afraid of sleep?

How would you handle the gift exchange, given that you don't know most of the people attending, and given that you don't really want to receive gifts without giving gifts in return and vice versa?
o hai, I'm new.
The thing is my mom is really against me going to school tomorrow. She says it's better to be safe than sorry. So my thing is, should I go? There's gonna be police so I don't THINK anything will happen but maybe I should stay home to be sure.
Is it just me or does Kevin look like the guy from 300?!
( Collapse )
What did you think of it?
Anyone have a spare copy of it that they don't need lying around? ;D
Do any of you have home remedies for nausea?
How long have you been wearing a bra?
Why do you you wear them?
(In case that first question makes no sense, I just want to know if you never wear one, or if you do but only during the day, or only every other day of the week, etc.)
What song is stuck in your head at the moment?
1) I would have to say I quite enjoy "What Kind of Cat Are You?" and any song from a goofy movie :P
2) "The Moose got Loose in Moose-achusetts". I listened to kids music tonight, lol
eta: Now it's "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" from Veggie Tales, arrghdblngn
I know I shouldn't care so much because he's single, but I have had very bad experiences with being lied to by loved ones, and he KNOWS this, and I really wouldn't care if he just told me the truth, but I am SO beyond pissed that he lied to me several times.
Yes, I *know* snooping is wrong. But it's a little late to get on my case about that now.
He's sleeping in the next room over and I can't decide whether I should go slap him, or if I should just take his car (I have a key) and go back home and he can get it tomorrow.
I'm going to go call my sister to try to calm down now, but... yeah. How might you recommend handling a situation like this? D:
What are indicators of fertility.. ie.. long hair etc..?
How did it go? Do you regret it?
Alternately, has anyone done something like this for you? (e.g. A past lover showing up randomly just because they had to see you). Were you glad they did?
(I'm not interested in "No I haven't, but it's a stupid idea" responses. Just actual experiences. Thnx.)
My question is about a boyfriend I had.
I would barely call it that. We dated and saw each other every day for a month. We called each other boyfriend and girlfriend.
I tried to tell him we should wait before using those 'titles' but he wouldn't have it.
The whole relationship was a roller coaster. I was infatuated and I was scared shitless and my anxiety was eating away at me. So he was very kind when I was honest about my apprehensions, but eventually I freaked him out.
He broke up with me, I said I understood, and I told him to not contact me for a few months (so I could get over him). We've spoken only once since. A mutual friend was hanging out with him and through her, he invited me to come. It was awkward and horrible.
This was months ago, he has a new girlfriend.
I feel pathetic that I still think about him. I don't miss him because I barely knew him. But it hurts that he cared so little. That he could not even call me once and ask me how I was doing.
Am I totally off base? Should I have expected a call? Would you guys call?
This is more of a philosophical question..I know that I will probably never see him again.
How suck ass is it gonna be to take these puppies out?
It's a pyrex square dish.
If so, any gruesome details you want to share?
This one's for the ladies (Barry White voice)
1. Can you tell me about (buying) your first bra?
2. Can you tell me about getting your first period?
3. Can you tell me about any similar embarrassing milestone I'm leaving out? [I think we can skip first kisses/sex though, unless you have a particularly awkward/juicy story]
When should I get a manicure?
Did you bite your nails when you were younger?
do you still do it?
If not, when/how did you stop?
Have any of you used ModPodge to put a finish on a collage project? How did it turn out? I have a jar that supposedly gives a "satin finish."
She's Jewish. I knew this. Brain fart. They we're cool about it...even when I made the same mistake 10 minutes later.
Anyway, I was discussing this with another person and we go on the subject of how hard it is to find Christmas cards.
Have you noticed? Most of them say, "Happy Holidays" or "Seasons Greetings".
That said, she thinks that we should give cards according to the recievers religion.
I heard this on the View as well. Not that I watch the View or anything...
My question: Do you give your cards according to the recievers faith (or lack thereof) or your own?
Also, have you ever made a total arse of yourself in dealing with friends of a different religion/ethnicity/gender...?
Would it bother you to recieve a card that didn't represent your religion?
it's cool with me. :)
And since that question will probably be answered quickly...
2. What do you think of politics? Do you think they're exciting and fun? Do you think they're stupid and annoying? Are you just along for the ride to see who causes the most drama? Or are you really active and opinionated?
Oh, and those are just prompts...you don't have to answer every question within the question. :p
My answer to #2:
I love politics. I'm very opinionated on some matters, but I try to state my opinion civilly, and I don't like to get into arguments with people. In fact, I'm not even really good at debating. I usually say "You've got a point, and I respect that," because there are few issues to which I can't see both sides.
Although it's always fun to watch the drama, too. :p
2.) The age old question: How many five year olds could you take in a fight?
3.) Ewoks: Yay or nay? Defend your response as best you can.
4.) Who's more irritating in their ethnic pride: Americans of Irish descent, or Americans of Italian descent?
yesterday i had two cups of dried beans. i put them in a big pot of water and let them simmer on the stove for about three hours, and then i let them soak overnight. i put them back on the stove today, and they have been simmering for about two hours...they are still not soft.
WTF tqc? what is going on? i want to make refried beans, but i can't if they are HARD.

Favorite green character?
2)What do you think is the biggest/most ridiculous lie your government has ever told you?
How are marbles a seasonal product?
Also, why does the world hate marbles?
Also, in the song The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year there is a lyric "There'll be scary ghost stories and tales of the glories of Christmases long long ago."
Why are there going to be scary ghost stories at Christmas?
Have you ever had a Christmas that was chock full of scary ghost stories?
Do you have a special talent?
WTF is this about? Night terrors? Have you ever had this happen?
Happy Holidays!! I hope I can phrase all of this right...pardon me if I don't - feel free to just answer in the general subject of the questions.
1 Do you have a family member or friend who always seems to be struggling with money and has trouble giving gifts over the holidays?
2 Do you think there are times when this is a valid problem and also times when this is a person who is irresponsible with money who doesn't care enough to give?
3 If you have a person who is rendered unable to give a lot of the time - do you still give to them? Are you resentful about it in any way?
4 Do you think that people who don't have money to give should make time to give, no matter what? (Meaning, do you think these broke people should make time, no matter what is going on in their life, to make things by hand that cost no money because if they don't then it is clear tey don't care about anyone but themselves?)
5 Do you think that someone who is very busy and overwhelmed with life and also very broke should accept gifts over the holidays or should they tell everyone they will not be accepting gifts since they can not give themselves?
have you ever put your shoes on and realized you didn't have any pants on yet?
only a few times. it's usually on mornings when i am super sleepy and forget that pants go on first.
Do you still try to put your pants on while you are wearing your shoes? How did that go?
Yes, my shoe got stuck in my pant legs so i had to take my shoes off and put my pants on first.

Do you use semi-colons in your writing?
Seems like a lot of people don't.

In this scenario, there is a car barreling out of control towards your pet and a stranger. You can save only one.
For those of you who said you'd choose your pet, would you choose them over:
An old man/woman?
The hottest man/woman you've ever seen?
For me, in the song, "The Mixed Tape" by Jack's Mannequin, he goes "You're thinking about what I've given up" but to me, it sounds like if it were written down on paper, it'd be "Your thinking about what I've given up."
( Collapse )
There's also a song by Angels & Airwaves called Love Like Rockets. In the second verse, he interjects with a "Yeah" but to me it sounds specifically like "Yah."
lol, bonus: does this make any sense?
Do you have a picture of your wedding dress?
5 hours of drunken 16 year olds on a rampage around her house.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how trashed do you think her house will be by the end of it?

Personally I think someone will try to climb it.
2. from your life experience do you think its true that nice guys finish last?
3. what do you need right now? (not what you want!)
"I can't get along little doggie,
I can't even get one that's small,

If you recognize it I'll love you forever!

Do you know any other weird physical games/experiments that we could try tonight?
Not saying I'm not any of those things. I just want to get away from those things IN me and around me.

Yellow is for friendship, red is love, etc.

At the end of January I am moving in with my boyfriend, partly due to financial reasons. His flatmate has a new job in a city far, far away and the poor boyfriend can't cope with the rent on his own.
This is the first time I have moved away from home though I have been able to fend for myself when the parentals have taken extremely long holidays.
So thequestionclub what advice do you have for me?
I should add that I'm getting my own bedroom and bathroom so the issue of the toilet seat has been covered ;)

What are some fun teenagerly things that I can do?
I take care of my mother's dog. He's a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. He has long flowing Fabio-like hair. Yesterday, we got 11 inches of snow, and are expecting a Nor'Easter this weekend.
Whenever he comes in from outside, snow is matted in his long chest-fur and all over the long hair on his legs. It's about a 10 minute process whenever I take him in to buff him with a towel and brush out all the snow.
Would it be wrong or bad or detrimental to him for me to have his chest and legs shaved for the winter?
How bad were the side effects?
Did you drink at all while using it?
I cooked the eggs, but the water never seemed to get to a "roiling boil." In fact, my gas stove seems to be inept at actually getting water to boil. So I left them in for a while, and about five minutes after there were bubbles.
The first egg I tried to peel was not done at ALL. Oozed everywhere. So I put the eggs back on the stove for about ten-twenty more minutes (I didn't pay attention to the boiling this time, I admit).
The next one I peeled came out fine, I thought. But today I bite into it and the yolk is still kind of liquid-y.
1. Since I ate the yolk when I bit into it, am I gonna die now?
2. Can I rescue the eggs that I didn't peel last night by boiling them again? They've been refrigerated overnight.
3. What the hell did I do wrong? If I can't get the water to boil then how long do I leave them in? Why is it so hard to boil an egg?
4. What's the last really simple thing you screwed up?
Or any good Science Club ideas in general?
I've wound up with a 3.5 GPA. This keeps my scholarship (HOPE, for Georgia residents) and lets me stay in the honors dorm/program.
So, TQC, why am I feeling so .. mad at myself? Is this warranted? (3 A's and 2 B's).
2. Which TQCer's age surprised you?
3. How old are you?

Until last week I was going to rent with one of my friends, but I have realised that she's not the kind of person I want to be around all the time. I just found out she has lied to me about quite a few things and she kind of fake to one of our friends, but says she won't have to be when they don't have to see each other (which is...terrible, imo). Anyway, she's done some dumb stuff and fights dirty and I am totally rethinking our room mate plan and I am totally bummed. :C
