Backstory: Im a live in nanny, and I typically work 7-9 am and 3-6 pm M-F + Wednesday evenings and saturday evenings.
The family work for is Jewish (I am not) therefore they do not celebrate christmas.
DO you think its unreasonable that they are making me work on christmas eve (monday evening)? The only day I am getting off is Christmas day.
2. Is it snowing where you are?
3. I have the flu but we just got 9 inches of snow. Should I make a snowman outside?
if it is a real song...what is it called?
Then again she told me her sister smoked weed laced with LSD which is impossible...
Next question - How did you find your hairstylist? How did you know he/she would be good? I've just moved and need to find a new one.
Which would you be more touched by: a handmade gift or a store-bought one? Would you rather feel touched or would you actually prefer not to be?
a) What is your standard packing list?
I'm going home for a month, and will inevitably forget something important.
b) What important things have you forgotten to pack in the past?
If I were going to use regular tea, and let it cool, would anyone have an idea of how I'd stop it going bitter as it cooled?
Do you ever stay up late for no good reason?
Can you suggest some immature, alternative phrases to use rather than 'hello' etc?
Yes, I am that bored.

what's something you've seen, heard or read that's made you think about your life? that won't leave you alone?
on an unrelated note, is it wrong to text "i miss you" to both your ex-boyfriend (who you still care for) and the your current boyfriend, if you're just longing for someone to cuddle with, when you fully know that neither of them can come and cuddle with you right now?
what do you do?
and now everything is gone
well everything on my user-account thing (I'm sharing with my mom until I hopefully get a mac)
like the programs I installed are still here
but my pictures, bookmarks, personal settings, important documents (pr0n lol), etc. are now vanish'd
I know that for illegal drugs, the answer is no. However, there is a movement that says former alcoholics can drink in moderation, and I don't think sex addicts are told that they have to remain celibate their entire lives.
What should I do?
How much do you pay a month?
How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you have in the apt?
Any roommates to share the expenses?
Where are you located?
What bills do you have aside from the rent?
Where did you find your roommate(s)? (If any.)
TQC, I am getting braces on WEDNESDAY and you get to decide which colors I get! Which color option do you like best?
I know my other post is only a few entries down but TQC is so slow right now and I don't want to forget this question. :(
American Gangster. Holy crap, Denzel's such a bad-ass.
on that note...
2.) What's something in movies that you can't watch or can but it completely freaks you out.
People shooting up in movies...it freaks the hell out of me.

2: To all blonde females, with a weight between 111lbs 137lbs,who own over 60 pairs of shoes, when was the last time you played a board game?
3: To all people between the ages of 24 and 28, living out side of the U.S.that live in a town with less than 1500 people, who work in the food processing industry, what are your feeling about the up coming Dark Knight Movie?
And a serious-ish question - Have you ever decided to obtain a decent second opinion? Did you present it to your primary care physician, or just do what the second doctor said without saying anything to the first guy?
My work gave me an entire box of cordial cherries for Chrimmas. That means ten cordial cherries, all for me. BUT! My tooth is bothering me. Should I eat them now anyways?
Another friend of mine does t-shirt dissection, and she is pretty good at making some awesome frankenclothing. Do any of you do this? If you did, and someone gave you a box of weird thrift store shirts and quirky sewing supplies for Christmas, would you think it was a nice gift? As well, if you read paperback fantasy books like a fiend (as in, you are never without one and it is your chief hobby because you live at least twenty minutes from everyone else in town, have dial-up internet, and two irritating little sisters), would you prefer:
A. One brand new fantasy novel
B. A stack of five or more used ones?
Do you think giving used gifts is tacky?
What is one quality that you possess that bothers you when you see it in other people?
What article of clothing have you been wanting lately?
What is this person trying to say?

What would you have done as a bystander?
2. how old were you when you first got a computer? how old are you now?
3. what physical feature are you most self-conscious about? (edit: what about that feature makes you self-conscious?)
4. if you go to the doctor on a regular basis, how long have you been going to this particular doctor for?
If you have, what did they say or do?
What was your reaction and how did you respond?
( Collapse )
2) Who are your favorite literary characters?
Purse, closet, room, whatever.
I have a short attention span.
(I was introduced to punk around the time I was thirteen, and though I'm not one to sleep in my boots and leather jack anymore, it's always been my heart. I understand the Sex Pistols were a big deal and there are people who say that's when punk really started. I pfffft at that, even though when I was younger, of course I knew lyrics to some of their songs and such. I digress. The guy was not talented in my opinion. He was a junkie and died very young. That's sad, not punk.)
Who in your life, is the hardest person to shop for?
What, besides your computer, is sitting on your computer desk(or what your laptop is sitting on)?
I have an itchy scalp and dandruff even after I wash my hair, but I don't like the smell of Head and Shoulders...can you recommend a shampoo that won't cost me $30?
**EDIT** I don't use Pantene Pro-V...I was just curious. I use some off-brand shampoo (I can't remember the name right now), but I do appreciate the comments, and I won't be buying it.
It might rain today. I have an aweful headache because of this.
Do any of you suffer from headaches because of rain?
After the rain comes the headache lifts... I can't wait for the rain to get here.
I watched it last night and am planning on writing the network a friendly little *fawk you*
Nicholas Cage narrated some of it, and I'm fairly certain the movie National Treasure paid for it. WHAT A COVER UP!!!! Wow. I sat there with my jaw resting on my chin wondering who else out there was witnessing the bullshit.
I do not recall the name of the program, any of the TQC family know what I'm talking about?
Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
So tell me TQC.
Are navel piercings a "sexual" thing or is my co-worker talking out of her ass?
It's snowed a LOT here in the last two days, what's the weather like where you live?
Do the people in your town mysteriously forget how to drive in winter weather like they do in Missouri or is it just a local thing?
2: To all "Ass men" that own 2 or more Nintendo, consoles who listen to Doom Metal, do you fear the impending take over by Robot Overlords? What about Cockroach Robot Overlords?
3: To all white, middle class, members of an Alt rock band, with a sleeping disorder, how often do you attend motor-sports events? If you do attend them what kind?
If you saw a baby locked in a car in extremely hot/cold conditions, what would you do?

2)do you draw a strong distinction between blogs and social networking sites?
3)If you get a headache that does not respond to taking an advil, what do you do? difficulty: I ate.

Are there aliens out there?
Are there aliens on Earth?
I'm trying to decide if they are a scam or not, because they sell my favorite hair product really cheap.
What do you think - could anyone else have played George as successfully?
Heaven forbid, if they were to attempt a straightforward remake (not a lame ripoff), is there anyone today who you think could attempt the role to some acclaim?
Also, if you don't like IAWL, why the hell not? (do you have something against older movies, or is there another reason?)
My boyfriend and I moved into our house about six weeks ago, and last night, while looking out the window, he saw a tiny little bug on the blinds. It turned out that it was a little baby cockroach (!). Naturally, we freaked out. We have no idea where it came from or if it has siblings or parents or whatever living in the house. Now, here's my question: what are the chances that we have cockroaches if we only we spotted our first one six weeks after having moved in? It seems like something that we would've noticed a LOT sooner if there was a roach infestation here. I also read that it may have hitched a ride in from the grocery store and we did in fact go grocery shopping yesterday morning, about twelve hours before we saw the little bug. What's the likelihood that that's where it came from? I am really, really hoping that it was just an isolated incident.

What is it supposed to do? What does it mean?

If you hand-wash, how the fuck do you get that nasty smell out of the sink? my sink smells like something died inside of it.

Best f'in pic? Y/Y?
Hypnotic! I could watch forever.
I keep hoping it'll pop open a little more.
Okay so this is an instructable for electroplating a nickel with copper (from a penny). In that step, it says to let the copper dissolve in the vinegar for an hour or two. In the next step, you replace the negative penny with the nickel, and then it plates it in 20 minutes.
Why can't you just put the nickel there in the first place? Why do you need two pennies, one on the positive and negative, to just dissolve the copper?
When I was in high school, my Spanish teacher played a song which he called "Letra B" which was supposed to be a Spanish spin of "Let it Be" by the Beatles. I can't find anything with the title "Letra B"

2. For the longest time I have wanted a Mini Cooper! Recently I have stopped caring so much that I get one because it just isn't that important to me anymore. And since it's not super important, I'd rather get something less expensive. What kind of car should I get? (I have to wait until April either way).

I'm trying to decide if I need to buy another gift or not.
Do you think it would make sense if, if you took one shower a day, always in the afternoon, you would change your clothes after the shower and wear that outfit both for the afternoon/evening and for the next morning? Would you do it?

What are some things I should/could do to spend my time during these 5 weeks? My other friends are nowhere near as available for this amount of hanging out, with them it's more like once a week. What are some projects I could do, activities, both outside and in the home, online, whatever.

3) Your Mom?
But to leave, there are like 2 ways out - a hallway exit and a NOT hallway exit!
I heard that one of my neighbors exploded outside in the hallway exit yesterday and left a giant flurry of throw up and blood covering the entire hallway! There's a rumor that he had lung problems and exploded after heavily drinking or something but....................Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Whenever I hang out with my BFF, I just leave through the exit that leads out into the street, not the hallway exit. Every other time, I go through the hallway. My BFF has left the city for the weekend to be with her parents. =(
If I leave through the not hallway way, then tons of my neighbors will begin following me and talking to me. I do not want to talk to my neighbors. I just want my milkshake!
I don't want to go through the hallway where someone apparently self-combusted and exploded all over it. =X =X =X
Help me decide?
=X =X =X

For the past few years I've gotten my boyfriend a Star Wars related item. Last year was a Star Wars encyclopedia, and the year before that was a scale model of the Millennium Falcon and the Shuttle Tiderian. This year I found an R2D2 hookah and I think it's an amusing way to continue the Star Wars tradition.
