I'd really love to "keep" a journal online,  but I'm paranoid about somethings...

Do *real life* friends know that you use LJ? Why or why not?

Have any of you ever had any "horror stories" involving LJ/Myspace/Facebook., etc? Whether it be a stalker or something you wrote in a journal about someone or that was secretive and it read by someone you know in *real life* or that you didn't want to read it. Do tell.

Verizon mobile IM

I have a verizon phone and I asked how much it costs to use the Mobile IM and they said just the txting. But, when I went to use it, it mentioned it taking airtime from my calling plan to sign in.

Is airtime web or just minutes?

Usually when using web it starts as Web 2.0.

so if anyone with verizon has ever used mobile IM, how much does it cost? Do I pay for web or minutes?

I feel like I'm waling on holy ground with snake skin boots, but what the hell.
Any of you think that TQC should change it's icon?
If so...what should the new icon be?
And why?

What's a quote or song lyric you heard recently that really struck home with you?

Mine's a lyric from "Do You Know What It's Like" from the show 'Zanna, Don't!'

"I'd fight a guy for you.
I'd fight a girl for you.
I'd fight myself,
You know I would,
If I thought it'd do any good.
Do you know what it's like?"

Who is one LJ user right now who is pissing you off? Why?

What is one of your communities that you wish 90% of the members would just grow the fuck up or FOAD?

Do we all need an LJ break?

1: To all narcissistic, vegan, Hasidic jews, who have a foot fetish, who is your favorite football team?

2: To all street racing, acrophobic John Tesh fans, who work in a grave yard, do you wear glasses?

3: To all gymnast phone phreaks that wear shorts all year round and who are members of a church choir, have you ever had an infectious disease?

Buying MP3s

Do any of you use an MP3 purchasing site/service that's NOT iTunes? Which site? Do you like it?

My mom's getting my dad a Creative Zen for Christmas, and my sister and I want to get him a gift certificate to buy some MP3s, but Zens don't support the iTunes format.

P.S. We're Canadian, and some sites won't let us download, like :(

I am having a Christmas catastrophy, and only TQC can help me


I need your help with my Christmas tree catastrophe. My brother and his girlfriend (both live with me in my house) decided to bring home a live tree for Christmas. The particular tree that they decided on, was the remains of the one bought to make the grave blanket* for my son's grave. There is still 5 good feet of tree left, even after the lower branches were pruned for the blanket, and it could be a nice tree. I, however, hate it. In my opinion, this tree was bought for a purpose, and that purpose was served when the pine decorations for my baby's grave were completed and put on it. Since it has been up in the house, I have been mean and hateful and crying hysterically. This tree does not represent Christmas to me.

So, would it be wrong and/or unkind of me to ask that the tree be taken down and we find some other alternative to our Christmas tree situation/needs?

* A grave blanket is a decorated bed of pine that covers the grave typically November/December thru February/March to protect it from the snow.

prego or ragu spaghetti sauce?

all my life we always had prego in the house, and ragu was considered to be the evil brand. recently, my dad, oh a whim, got RAGU! omg BLASPHEMY! i tried it, and guess what? i like it better. *feels guilty*

what condiment brands have you been faithful to , not because of taste, but based on the fact that that's what was in your house as a kid? best foods vs. miracle whip, hidden valley vs. newman's own, french's vs. know. OR, did you rebel and start buying the competing brand just to stick it to your parents??

what about the all-mighty chevy vs. ford debacle that people get so caught up in? my family has always avoided that by sticking with toyotas and hondas.

any other big-brand debate things that i didn't mention?

1. Is there anything about the town you live in that you're used to, but that a visitor may be all "WTF?" about?

I have lived here since I was five years old, and not only is the local air force base's flight pattern right over my neighborhood, but I live a mile - maybe less - away from the train tracks. Between the airplanes ahead and the trains nearby, anybody else would have a hard time concentrating. But it's my lullaby sometimes.

2. Has anybody ever bought you paid time on LiveJournal? Was it anonymous, or did they let themselves be known?

An anonymous benefactor just gave me six months of paid time for Christmas. I now have room for 111 icons. I don't even think I have 111 icons!

there's a quote that's stuck in my head.

i'm not sure whether it's from a book or a movie/tv show but it's kind of sweet and it's been making me awww when i think of it.

anyone know what i'm talking about? or should i start writing my own script?

Here is my question of the day TQC.

Scenario: You have a five year old child in kindergarten. Your child brings home stories of another kid that bites, kicks and punches other children in the face. The teacher and the principal of the school has been notified. The bully is not allowed in the classroom unless a teacher is present, however, their behaviour is continuing. Your child is now afraid to go to school...

Does anyone know where to find the red and white octopus shown in the fourth picture on this site?:

My cats received one as a gift from someone a couple years ago, and it became their favorite toy. For some reason, it's one they never got tired of, but it's finally reached the point where it needs to be tossed, and I have no idea where to get a new one. My grandmother gave it to them, but she passed away last year, and I don't know where she got it. I tried googling it, and the closest thing I came to is the picture that's posted - it's not my pic.

In general, would you consider this a shitty present? If so, how shitty? At first I thought it was really cool, but now I'm starting to wonder if it is, in fact, one of the shittiest presents ever. I'm debating returning it.

It's meant to go in your garden, or some place similar. It's solar powered, and glows/lights up at night.

I just got my hair done, and the color is a little bit too platinum-y for my preference. I am naturally medium to dark blonde, and she did all over highlights. For some reason, I went really light blonde this time.. either she did more highlights then normal, or left the foil in too long... I have no idea.

I really don't have the time to go back and have her adjust the color today or tomorrow, and my stylist is on vacation starting this weekend.

Do you think using a product like John Frieda Sheer Blonde shampoo will warm the color up a little without having to get it redyed? I have heard mixed reviews about these sorts of products.

Bear necessities

You inherit a full-grown panda in some strange raffle that you don't remember entering. What do you do with it?

Keep it as a pet. A big, messy pet
Donate it to a zoo
Let it loose into the woods. Born free, as free as the wind blows. Go find your panda friends!
Shear it and make panda-fur cardigans, which are utterly rare. Every year, you make another one. The bear is an annual cash cow
Mmmm. Panda steak
Teach it to wear a saddle and turn it into your personal panda pack animal
Teach it to kill and have it develop a taste for human flesh, and then slowly clean up the crime in the city at night
Try and breed it with various dogs, and start a new highly-coveted breed of pooch that will make you rich
I can't keep a panda. My landlord won't let me. I donate the bear to the poor. I leave it tied up at a church poor box

I would like to add a little more, but I can't think of anything that would be easy to make and would not require a trip to the grocery store for special ingredients.

At my office, I was in charge of decorating our lobby with our prettiest holiday cards for our holiday party. My fellow employees gave me all the cards they didn't want so I could display them, and by our party on the 12th, I had about 30 cards.
Well, the party is long gone and I am STILL getting tons of cards from people. I have a stack of maybe 100, and I'm sure there are more to come (I also receive the ones addressed to the company in general by default, so I get about ten per day from that alone). I have a feeling that after New Years I'll be told to dispose of them, since there's no way we would want to hold onto them. I'm feeling a little guilty about just throwing out all of these beautiful cards. Is there some kind of charity I can give them to? Whether they can go to sick kids, wounded soldiers, or even if they can just recycle them, I would much prefer that to having them rot in a landfill. I live in Northern VA, US if that makes any difference. Thanks!

2. I really want one but I'm 18 and never had one. At what age did you have your first boyfriend?

3. How do you feel today? What do you intend to do?

Squeeze my Lemon Baby...

My bf asked me what I wanted for Xmas, and I pretty much decided that I want a juicer. I drink so much orange's pretty insane. *have a tall glass to my left*
No juicer is created equal, any of you have a suggestion on brand, name, model?
I wouldn't mind an old fashioned *hand crank* one, but uhm...I would never use it;)
Any fun recipes whilst we're on the juicer topic?
thank ya

1. On average, how many posts from TQC do you think you answer every day?
2. What's your mother's most annoying habit?
3. Have you ever asked a question twice to see if people ever remembered that you asked it in the first place, or if they change their answer?

4. So. My mom wants to adopt a cat or dog (she'll most likely settle on a cat unless she finds something different) and we were at an animal shelter today. We saw a half chow mix. What are bad things about chow-chows that you know of? Why should she adopt a mutt instead of a pure breed or pure breed instead of a mutt?

5. I play tribalwars. Anyone else here play it? Anyone have an online game to recommend quite like this one?

foreign film help

A few years ago (3? 4?) I saw a trailer for a movie, and I don't recall it ever coming out, and I cant remember what it was called. It was a foreign film (German? French? I don't remember, but it wasn't in English) and the trailer is filmed in a camcorder style, and it's basically just showing a brownstone house from the point of view of the street outside. The movie is about this family that is being watched by some freak.

I don't remember much else. Does anyone know what movie this is? It's a long-shot, I know. Thanks.

Should I do this, or would it be over the top?

My friend has always been designated driver for our club events. He's always the one picking everyone up and dropping them back home. I've always felt bad about it 'cause it wastes his gas and time, but I don't have my liscense yet. One time, he drove us to a conference that was like 2 hours away and dropped us back home. Right when he dropped me off, I gave him some money, saying that I appreciate that he drove us and that it's for the gas. Today, I gave him cookies when he picked us up, saying it's a little thank you gift for driving us. I've always thanked him a lot for rides.

On Monday, he will be driving me to a service project with him. I'm planning on giving him $25 when he drops me back home, saying that it's a little something for the holidays because I appreciate all that he's done for us. Also, I'd mention that I would get him something more personal, but I don't know exactly what he wants and with money, he could get what he wants. Would that be a little over the top? We're not super close in that we exchange presents, but I really appreciate what he's done for us. Should I give more? $30? $35? 

Jerry Springer question.

I'm not an avid Jerry Springer viewer so I have a question.
I've caught two new episodes and I don't understand something.

When two people are fighting, sometimes one of the security persons will take one of them and bring them to center stage.
The security person will take the persons hands and the audience counts to 10. After the count is up, they slap the person in the face.

Why do they do that? What is that?

Cheap Camera Choices

Which $10 digital camera should I buy?

A. Vivitar Mini Digital Camera (as seen in CVS's ad at )

B. Innovage Mini Digital Camera (as seen in Walgreens's ad at )

C. Other (please specify!)

If anyone happens to know an easy way to find their specs, that'd be super awesome too, but I don't want to get smacked for asking something that might should be answered by Google-foo, which I'm currently lacking.

I remember recently seeing a movie or TV show in which a lady was talking to someone about the song "Love The One You're With" and how she thought it was a sad song. I heard the song today on the radio and it reminded me of this. Do you guys have any idea what the movie/show could be?
