December 24th, 2007
It snowed here yesterday and hasn't melted yet so everything is still white. I guess that counts as one even if it's not actually snowing.
As many of you fellow Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert fans know, their shows are returning to the air on January 7th. I personally am feeling very conflicted as to whether or not I will watch. Will you, and why or why not?
Reasons for me to watch: Jon nd Stephen might help promote the writers' cause; I'm not a Nielsen viewer, I am in serious Stephen withdrawal.
Reasons for me not to watch: that would totally undermine the point of supporting the writers like I have been; the shows would not be in their true form (I believe both stephen and jon are WGA members, so they would not be able to write material).
correct me if i am wrong on any of my information.
2. Did your parents drink?
3. How can you tell how drunk someone is?
1. Judgmental people
2. Pushy people who can't take no for an answer
4. Rabid nationalists
6. Those who obviously play the "Keep up with the Jones' Game"
7. Cut throat "Scensters/Hipsters"
8. Constantly angry people
What is your typical reaction when you run into any of these types of people?
b) how many times did you gag?
c) did you watch it more than once?
2) are you going to go watch the video if you havent seen it? or at least look it up?
*my adivse.. dont.*
but here it is anyway..
OH and its NOT SAFE FOR WORK..AT ALL.
My question is this; what would you do if this was your roommate?
Personally, I've tried being there for her during her "depressed" periods. I've tried talking to her. I've tried simply leaving her to her own devices. Nothing seems to work.
...also, my boyfriend did not get me a Christmas gift because he bought me something for my birthday in October. I spent all week drawing on a box to put his present in. Am I at all justified in being annoyed at him?
Please tell me some holiday horror stories.
Have you ever lost your luggage?
Will I get mine soon enough to have clean underwear during my vacation?
Does the obligation to give gifts make giving them to people you care about meaningless?
My boyfriend and I have not been together very long at all - - only three months but I feel so diffrently with him then I have with anyone else, its indiscribable. I want to do anything and everything to keep him happy, I adore everything about him, his strenghts and his flaws. && that scares me more then anything in the world. I know its the real deal, I can feel it - - I've been in serious relationships before my longest being three and a half years and I have felt more for this one person in the past three months then i ever did for my ex in the three years we were together.
So my question is ;
How do I know if it goes both ways? and should i wait for him to say it first or should i go out and tell him - - and if so how?? && if you've been in love How did you know it was real when you fell in love?
ahhh . . im just so confused and soo amazingly scared. HELPPP.
A. Mail the actual articles, clipped and arranged in a plastic report folder thingy
B. E-mail the (sometimes unreliable) links to the school's online PDF copies.
C. E-mail and attach my own personal .doc versions of my articles.
D. OTHER, to be explained in zee comments.
I spent $50 tonight at Wal-Mart when I really went in for maybe $15 worth of stuff. I'm having some buyers remorse now.
2. What do you like to put on your pancakes/waffles?
3. About how many posts have you made on the TQC today?
1. Yes--I'm pissed beyond words
2. Peanut butter
3. None as of yet, but that will change
So what's with the "small penis" cliche?
Your personal observations?
Why do I like the word mellow so much?
WTF is in the box, TQC?!
non-srs answers = moar fun
My question is, is student teaching usually something you do right before you graduate (undergrad)?
Ive known this guy forever and I think he graduates this spring but I really can't remember and considering our history I feel mega guilty for not remembering. Especially since my goal is to come off as ... not a bitch. -_-;;;;
So yeah, help?
Anyone using either CS3 or the new Elements from Adobe?
What do you think of them?
For photo editing, is Elements enough and will it do things like curves in PS?
thegreatone0381 I'm looking at you.... :)
I've been up for ten minutes and my dog already bit my toe, so I'm thinking that today may just not go my way
Has anyone asked this yet?
What are your plans for today, eh?
Get it off your chest, TQC!
( Collapse )
WHAT ARE SOME GOOD TROLL-ISH QUESTIONS?
IF I'M BAD WILL SANTA DUMP IN MY STOCKING?
EDIT WHAT WILL TQC BE TALKING ABOUT IN THE 2010'S??
2. If you or someone you know was ever addicted to drugs, what's one of the worst things they ever did while under the influence (or in order to be under the influence ... like stealing money to buy drugs, etc.)? What was the drug?
3. a. If you found out you had an STD, who would you tell? Would it depend on the STD?
b. If you've been tested for STDs, which ones have you been tested for? (EDIT: If you say "all of them", are you including HIV/Hepatitis (or even just HIV) which is a blood test and you usually have to explicitly request?) I just wonder because I know people who think they have been tested for STDs when they actually haven't or think they have been tested for everything when they also have not.
2. Why do people of other religions or no religion find it offensive for people to tell them Merry Christmas? A lot of people in my area can't say it where they work now because it offends people.
3. Can someone with pale skin be sexy or hott? I think they can but I'm pale myself. I can't wear shorts or skirts without someone saying "ewww what's wrong with your legs?" but they're just pale. : /
Who would you cast in it?
I would remake Harold and Maude. I would cast Helen Mirren and Michael Cera in the roles.
usually a compliment.. it kinda depends on how the person says it & who says it.
2. what's the most expensive gift you bought for someone this holiday? who is it for?
$70 gift set of YSL Opium perfume for my mom
3. do you use AT&T service for anything? (phone, internet, etc)? if so, are you happy with it?
because I have both my internet & cellphone through them and they've both been giving me problems lately. not to mention their customer service has to be some of the worst I've ever experienced.
4. were you off of work today, or did you call out?
I called out
I can't believe this happened on Christmas Eve :(
haha, i know this is ULTIMATELY up to me, but..would you do it?
have you ever done this? stories plz.
Does it bother you when your white shoes get dirty?
If so, what do you use to clean them?
» Movie, the new Miracle on 34th Street; TV show, Doctor Who's christmas specials, or Charlie Brown.
2. What is a word you constantly hear mispronounced or said completely wrong? How do people mispronounce it? (Phonetics would help!)
» I always hear people say Krogers when it is Kroger (the supermarket), and recently I've heard poinsettia, which i've always heard as "poi-en-set-ee-uh" as "pon-set-uh".
3. Favorite Disney movie?
» All the princess movies, Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast.
So this is what I got my boyfriend, brendan for christmas, what do you guys think?
( Collapse )
1. Ever since we got it, my dog has been staring at me whenever I use the treadmill. He will stand next to the running mat and just stare...it would appear not at anything particular i.e. He isn't following my legs or anything. He just looks creepy and insane. Has this happened to anyone else before with their dog or other pet? Do you have any ideas as to why he's doing this?
2. For Sims 2 players, what's the strangest/most random thing your Sim has decided to do with the Free Will turned on?
And also, 3. Do you use/have you used the boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true cheat? If yes, what's the greatest/funniest thing you've used it to do? 4. And/or if anything you've tried to do with has gone horribly horribly wrong, what was said incident?
xposted to cooking
I just realised it's my step brothers birthday on boxing day! In the christmas present buying I forgot to get him anything. He'll be coming over for xmas day and I need to have it ready to give to him.
So.. I have work in 45 minutes, I work in a video store and my choices are a DVD or PS2 game...
I'm thinking the game, because I can rent free DVD's for him so buying one seems a bit lame.
WHAT GOOD GAMES WOULD A 15 YEAR OLD BOY LIKE!? I asked my 14 year old brother... but he's a bit of a girl and would rather paint a picture :-/
name some, i'm stuck!
oh and merry xmas :-D

I've been invited to dinner at my boss' home, but today I'm throwing up and feel ill. I brought it on myself and deserve it due to drinking vodka, which for some reason kills me. Anyone else react to certain types of alcohol more than others?
Anyway, should I call and apologize and crash in bed tonight, or should I suck it up because I inflicted the pain on myself and go anyway?
Unrelated: does anyone else love coffee but find it makes them sick?
Mine's "White Christmas" :D
Will you show/tell me examples of shirts that will go well under this vest?
Would you rather receive balloons, baked goods, or flowers for your birthday?
When doing the 'safety dance' properly, what themes are commonly identified in the moves?
In the song 'hungry like the wolf', what is the source of this wolfish hunger?
In Van Halen's 'Jump', what is David Lee Roth advising the listener to do?
Last year my uncle sent me a card with a crossword puzzle with words like "gifts" and "cookies." I was 16 :/
What is the most surprising gift you have got?
My aunt gave me the placemats I LOOOVE that her mother in law made! I thought I had to wait until she died. :D
Going to the mall on Christmas Eve but not for Christmas shopping is the worst idea ever, y/y?
My husband and I are going to get Indian food tonight, but he's an Indian food "rookie". He's only really ever eaten Butter chicken, which he likes, but wants to mix it up.
He is NOT a tofu eater. He enjoys meat and not a ton of vegeteables. he also isn't a curry fan, but he likes spicy food.
So, he asked me to ask you all. What should my husband have for dinner tonight, TQC?
Are you going to see the new Alien Versus Predator movie tomorrow?
What about *insert your religion or lack thereof of choice here*?
What about during the holidays?
What if the people know you and like you?
i'm not convinced. like many girls my age i have a soft spot for him but.. it's Heath Ledger. of course my reaction to Christian Bale playing Batman was, "That fruity cowboy is playing Batman?!" and now i can't get enough of that man. so we will see. and he does have that sort of shifty quality to him..
Who do you think longiloquence is in real life?
I'm guessing 13 year old pansy boy who rips wings off of butterflies.
(Weird font wth? Sorry).
What's a good brand suitcase that isnt overly expensive, and is good for someone who flies 4-5 times a year?
how did he get bailey's confused with smirnoff?
was this all a cop-out because he wanted smirnoff?
if i asked you to get me a bottle of bailey's, what would you bring me?
what's your favourite alcoholy-type thing?
p.s. Wesołych Świąt Bożego Narodzenia to all my Polish peepz. Wigilia ftw!
TQC, is this creepy or not? I seriously want some thoughts/opinions on this matter. should I tell this guy to buzz the hell off?
Freedom is new; tyranny is old?
So I ask, where do you live and why do you live there?
I always hear that girls end up with guys like their father, and guys end up with women like their mother, and I'm wondering how true this is.
i'm trying to decide between tokyo or barcelona. i take spanish & most of my friends will be in europe then so we could all visit each other if i'm in barcelona, but i've always wanted to study abroad in tokyo for some reason.
what would you do, TQC?
Do you believe the holidays bring the best or the worst out of people?
is saying "even if i weren't" grammatically correct? shouldn't it be "even if i wasn't"? could it be both? this is driving me mad.
i'm shallow and refuse to get regular braces, so i have to get the slightly more expensive kind behind my teeth. (plus i'm 25 and a professional.)
thanks, TQC, for making my teeth pretty!
also, how much does it suck to have to get braces at this age? this post was just designed to make me less frustrated by instead laughing at your pissy responses to my question.
TIA! merry christmas, if you celebrate. merry december if you dont. :)
ETA: are t here any gifts you are assuming you're going to get, that you'll be upset i fyou don't?
He's got no idea what the hell it was specifically, could someone give me some ideas on what's popular in England tea-wise so I can get some for him to sample and try to help him out?
What was it? :D
I wanted this awesome, awesome, awesome book, Not Just Cartoons, NICKTOONS!, which is basically the encyclopedia to every cartoon Nick has plopped out there. It has a slip cover that is basically a packet of green slime, and when I picked it up, i could feel it sloshing around.
What other weird combinations of foods do you like?
I think I might also marinate some shrimp in it too, since my brother likes grilled shrimp.
To give you an idea of the flavours we'll be having, here's a list of our Christmas dinner:
Salad (lettuce, onion, cucumber, black olives, Italian dressing)
Mashed Brown Sugar Sweet Potatoes (Regular potatoes for my brother the picky bastard)
Steamed sweet peas (steamed sweet corn for my brother the picky bastard)
Sauteed green beans with garlic and onion
What should we have for dessert?
Grilled pineapple with Vanilla ice cream and homemade caramel drizzle and pecans
Dutch Apple Pie a la mode
What should we have to drink with this meal?
White would be too light, wouldn't it?
Southern Sweet Ice Tea (practically the consistency of syrup)
What are you going to be having for Christmas Dinner? (either tonight or tomorrow night, whichever is your family's tradition)
Where do you show off your pictures online? [Deviantart, Flickr etc]
In "The Devil Went Down To Georgia," who do you think should have won the contest?
YouTube for those who don't remember the song:
Also, do vests make women look overly busty? What styles of vest would be cute on persons of slim-to-average size but top-heavy?
have you seen santa doing weird things this holiday season???
From what she said about it, it was some sort of infection that is highly contagious. It can be spread easily, through the air or direct contact, etc. My uncle never bothered to wash his hands while handling him unless he was wet (yes, I lolled so hard at that)...because, well, he's stupid.
Now I've googled this, I was guessing it was spelled Mesna. No medical conditions come up though, only medicines, and I really want to read more about this. So what was my aunt talking about?
I bet I'm spelling it wrong but I don't have any other clue how to spell it.
I did today. I told a lady she couldn't donate because her iron was too low. She looked at me, burst into tears and asked me if I knew of a place where she could find a cheap Christmas tree. I felt like the world's biggest asshole. And what's worse, I couldn't think of anywhere to get a tree really cheap at the time. :(
What is the answer?
Who are you subscribed to on Youtube?
How much does a movie ticket cost where you live? Is it too much?
Also, what's making all that noise under my bed?
Here's a doozy that I got as a text message:
Q: What did Tweety Bird say when he visited a whore house?
A: I tawt I taw a Puddy Twat!
What's your favorite Blues song?
Do you have Vista?
Have you had any good experiences with it?
(I've heard a ton of horror stories, believe me.)
Would I be better off getting my dad to install XP instead, even if it's not exactly a legal copy, whereas the Vista is?
EDITED: What is it that you hate about Vista?
Have you ever had fondue?
a pool table, a ping-pong table, a dart board, an electronic hoops game, a foosball table, a weight machine, video game systems (Rock Band, Guitar Hero, DDR, all that), a mini-bar with mini-fridge & counters/cabinets.
Is this excessive? How can I convince my parents that it is? Because they are adamant on getting a pinball machine and I think there is a line and it has already been crossed.
Or am I just being a bitch (/bitter college student) and I should let my brother have his excessive fun?
I got an 8 mp digital camera and frame, perfume & body butter, Across the Universe soundtrack, a nice soft blanket, pjs and a Bible. The camera is not that great, it's a Polaroid but I needed a small camera anyways. :)
I checked at astronomy.com, and the sky chart shows that the really bright planet near the moon (wanning gibbous, whatever that means) is Mars. It's really clear right now in the Midwestern part of the States.
I'm particular to Curel for my lotion, Dove for my soap, and Downy for my laundry soap.
Are there any religions that the number of members are progressively going down?
So, what did you get me?
