Who is your bff? How did you meet/become bffs? Pics? Anecdotes? Do they read your mind and call you when you want to hang out with them? Am I being needy?
What is your favorite trail mix bar?
What do you think happened post Cloverfield?
I struggle with my weight.
I'm 145 pounds, 5'7.
I eat right and workout 3 or 4X a week.
I've been thinner but it requires enormous calorie restriction.
I've been bigger but I'm frankly not impressed with how much work I have to do to get mediocre results.
My question is:
Should I just try to stop caring and eat whatever I want?
(The consequence being I will get bigger and probably less satisfied with how I look, but I won't be so boring and obsessed by numbers.)
Also for the women out there, does it ever get easier?
Do you ever stop caring?
I kind of now the answers to these questions but I guess I need to know that other people also struggle with their weight like I do.
there is a dr. mario for game boy on ebay. does that just mean that if i use it in my gameboy color that it'll work but just wont be in color?
Why did you do it?
I just downloaded several of the songs that are on Rock Band to learn them better. There's a tournament in two weeks and I want to win my share of $500.
Would white or black furniture look better in a white room with white baseboards & doors?
If you could buy anything right now what would it be?
The light that says that the computer is plugged in isn't flashing when it should be since it IS plugged in.
You guys got any ideas what's going on and what I should do?
TQC, would you give D the big fuck you, or continue to put up with their shit?
What's your favorite flavor of Pop Tart?
If you could have any pet, what type of animal would it be?
Edit: Since Michigan is shaped like a mitten, which is supposed to help keep you warm, shouldn't Michigan be warm?
It annoys the hell out of me for some reason.
Do you know anyone famous? Just figured I'd ask.
(And by "know" I mean... talk to them on a regular basis)
The reason I ask is I just sold some boots on eBay, and the auction indicated it would cost $10 to ship to the US. Well, I just received payment from the winner and it turns out they live in Australia.
Edit: I'm going to find out costs tomorrow, and will contact the buyer to let him know he'll have to pay the rest of the shipping costs, or I'll issue him a refund.
2. For those of you who collect things, what do you collect?
And, which one(s) did you buy? Give me the name, the URL, or the description... something that I can use to check out the product. Do you know a really good one for G-Spot stimulation? Or a vibrator that doesn't make a really loud buzzing noise?
And, TQC, do you know where to buy gay sex porn DVDs? Most places sell straight stuff or lesbian porn. But, where to get the gay stuff?
1) Whats a good job I can get where I'm required to not wear a shirt?
2) What did you have for dinner? Did you use any pepper?
3) Can I have your best friends fathers e-mail address?
( Collapse )
b) Have you ever heard of someone named "Hope Dregg" (sp?) who is a musician?
c) Have you ever been injured at a concert? How? What came of it?
d) When was your last tetanus shot?
Just a random thought that popped into my head.
What's your favorite kind of pasta/noodles?
I just spent the last 2.5 hrs praying to throw up because my stomach has never felt so wretched in my entire life.
I've never been so fucking thankful in my life.
And for the record, I don't know what was wrong with my stomach, I didn't eat any meat (salmonella), anything unusual, anything in excess, or consume any type of alcohol, and I don't feel sick otherwise or haven't prior to this.
1. Is your wedding ring brand new (as in right from the jewler) or is it not so much (as in specially designed/modified from an old ring or piece of jewlery, or like a grandmother's / relative's ring recycled)?
2. Was the cost of the ring / size of the ring an important thing to you?
3. How long have you been married?
3b. Does your significant other wear their ring? (I know some guys just dont like wearing their ring even if they are sublimely happy in marriage)
4. Do you think its more significant for a woman not to wear her wedding ring or a man not to wear his?
4b. If a guy stops wearing his wedding ring and hasn't worn it for over a month is this coincidence or is it a sign that he's losing interest in his marriage?
ETA: in regards to 4b after everyone has said maybe he takes it off for work ect. His job is not as such that he would need to nor does he and its been pretty much superglued to his hand since becoming married
You probably know of Linda Fiorentino through any number of films, she's been in a lot and is very recognizable. I like her, she makes me all warm in my happy places. She once did a movie called The·Last·Seduction which I originally saw on late night HBO but was stunned a bit after that when it popped up in theaters...
...a movie that came out on the small screen first.
Do you know of any other movies that came out to cable or was rentable before it was on the Big Screen?
1. About that Cloverfield movie...Does anyone know what the monster is yet? If yes, do tell. Also, I read the newspaper yesterday and it recieved a rather poor review...so I don't think I want to see it..but it's killing me not knowing what the monster thing is. What did you think of it if you've seen it?
2. Recently, I started doing Pilates at home..only very light, beginner stuff...but the point is, I keep geting spasms in my legs which prevent me from stretching them in certain positions....Does anyone know if anything can fix spasms? I mean, I'm going to try beat them by stretching very very lightly in the bad places and then building up to how it's meant to be, but...is there something I can do to actually rid myself of them?
(If you intend to go and see Cloverfield and don't want it spoiled for yourself, maybe you shouldn't view the comments that may come from this post...)

I have a question.
# When you cuddle with your boyfriend/girlfriend , what're your favorite things to do or receive? :)
So, TQC- Where's Chris' watch?
then while I was napping just now I dremt about being in a lake that had too much water, and this time I was on a peir that was mostly underwater, I slipped and fell in and had to struggle to get my clothes off so I wasn't weighted down. Then I was able to climb out safely.
what does this dream mean?
what did you dream last night?
What was the most recent thing you've cooked?
Does that even make any sense, since they're not YOURS? You don't take them with you when you leave.
I can understand for something that's your fault, but if it's just a freezer that's suddenly not freezing or something...
They supply IBM ThinkPads to all those in majors requiring a laptop. Except the computers are crap and they glower and bitch when you bring them a computer that isn't an IBM machine (for, of all things, to have the internet set up since it's a secure network).
Srsly. I have to have my Mac "approved" to be able to use it for my schoolwork. The hell? O.o
I need to know because this character I'm creating is a pretty big name in this "suburban-sized" town and he holds some status with city hall.
Either that or what else could he do to be well-respected and known throughout?
edit: Perhaps he could be the President of the Chamber of Commerce?

Googling didn't indicate one way or the other. I don't want to google too much about porn while at work anyway.
This would be in the US, but it will cross state lines.

Do you think it be cool to run a marathon at the North Pole?

I am going to fast for the next month.
Want to make a bid of how long I last?
TQC, can you recommend any books on gardening for beginners?
Or any resources, really.
What would you do with 20+ acres of property?
We've got a pond and a stream, so we're covered for swimming and fishing. :)
Before he left he was hanging out with me every day, for three weeks. Before that it was more three or four times a week. For hours on end usually as well. But, we always had some time by ourselves every day, even if it was just a few hours between him going home at 3 am and me going to his house at 11 am.
Now he'll be sleeping in our family room, we'll be doing the cooking for the family, and I can't like, just wander off to my room for a bit because he has no where to wander to himself. [if we were *living* together, I doubt any of this would be a problem, but it's like... no way to really get away from each other... ]
We'll both be looking for houses, he wants me to go with him to see them.
Now, the question is... what are some things we can do to keep ourselves entertained so we're not just sitting around going 'oh my god i'm so bored' and start getting bored with each other? What can I offer him as things to do while I'm I dunno, in the shower or doing household chores? Where are some places we can go to get out of the house for a change of scene? Any other ideas?
We've never fought, and I'm only rarely pissed off at him and it's n ot from seeing him too much it's from some stupid things he's said while not thinking. And I am terrified that ... something will go wrong with this situation. I'm really looking forward to him coming actually.

My roommate borrows my clothes, then goes to bars and brings home random guys while pretending to be me. She pretends to have my job and tells them stories that I've told her before. I thought it was funny the first time, but I guess it's working out for her because she's done it 2 more times in the last month. It doesn't really affect me in any way, but it's getting kind of weird. I don't know what to do about it. What would you do?
I woke up this morning and am much lighter than yesterday so I want a bagel with peanut butter!!!
what are they?
Any tax surprises for you this year?

My SO's mom is a massage therapist, and for Christmas she gave me a gift certificate for a free massage. I have to use it by the end of the month. I'm kind of nervous because I have no idea what to expect. Will I have to strip naked for my boyfriends mother? Ick. I know they use cloth to strategically cover all your private parts and stuff, but I'd still feel very uncomfortable being that exposed.
What are three things you can see from where you are sitting?
So far, Dell has replaced (under warranty, hooray): the LCD screen, the mother board, the heatsink and fan assembly, the ram and the CPU. Same problem. They're going to try another LCD display. What do you think is wrong? Demons? Zombie demons? Gremlins?
What's the last thing you made from scratch?
So my boyfriend and I decided we're going to New York City next May (May 2009). We're traveling by Greyhound (it's cheapest) and have found a few cheap hotels as possible lodging. We're gonna do all the "touristy" things, like the Empire State Building and Central Park. We'll probably be there May 18-23 (or whatever that M-F is).
1. Do you recommend any other places for us to see while we're there?
2. Cheap but delicious places for food? We don't want to spend more than $30-$35 a day, if possible.
3. Things to avoid?
4. General safety tips?
5. Anything else?

I can't access mine at all
I keep having to jump on the Mac here to get my email.
I hate the interwebs.
Do you enjoy music more if you understand the lyrics?
About 20% for me, which is pretty sad considering my entire music collection is about 90% English. I like music better when I can understand the lyrics, but I don't pay attention even if I do unless I'm really focusing, so it's not a huge deal. I should add that I mostly understand French music, which is a huge portion of the non-English music I listen to. The rest is mostly Portuguese, which I don't understand.
Does your house/apartment/dorm have a security system?
so tqc, i come to you to ask, how do i keep myself hydrated and make myself drink more water? it's not that i don't want to drink it, i just don't ever feel the need to. one of my friends suggested that i buy a camelback and REI and strap it to myself so i always have water and will be forced to drink it. i don't want to go that far though.

Do you think these people that laugh at my interest of responsible are ghetto. Y/Y?
I also like to mention I am not married. I have an SO for over six years but still that is not the same as being married.
I am going to be twenty five in Feb. :-P
What are your favorite board/non-board games?
Edit: Okay...so I'm seeing a majority of you pretty much hate them. So what bands would you say ARE good?

tqc am I dying/what's wrong with me? have you ever been injured at a concert?
What color are your bedsheets?
What's the last gift you gave someone?
(the reason she wants to fire you is because she thinks you're not going above and beyond her expectations or job requirements.. and the only reason she hasn't found a replacement is because she can't find someone who has your skills, and will accept the pitiful pay that she offers)
would you confront him/her?
would you work harder?
try to find another job (even tho its impossible to get another one)?

Should I say something?

What do you like to wear when just lounging around your home?
Why does she refuse to turn it down when either my husband or I come home until we tell her to?
Would it be wrong of me to put my foot into the speakers if she continues this behaviour? (It is actually the stereo that we bought before she moved in with us, so I wouldn't be destroying anything of hers.)
As in - where has everyone gone? It seems quiet.

Or that you're good enough to almost be the lead?
Because if you were an understudy for the lead, it must mean you're really good...but why wouldn't you have an actual part?
Do you get a little/lot annoyed when you call your SO and they don't answer?
Me, usually no, but today it happened and for some reason I keep thinking about it.
Sometimes, if I really need to talk to him. I also understand he is busy though. I just called to see if he wants anything from the store and he didn't answer.
What are they up to?

Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium

Any recommendations on what I should watch?
1. Would you say that you are equally matched, intelligence-wise?
2. How romantic is your partner? Does how romantic they are now differ from how romantic they were when you were first dating?
3. What are you going to be doing for Valentine's day? If you don't have any plans, what is the most memorable Valentine's day you've ever had?
1. How do you feel about the movie Napoleon Dynamite?
2. What is your least favorite holiday/why?
How much does it typically cost to dye shoes to match a dress (the bride wants them dyed)?
If you had a bridal shower for the bride, how much money did you pitch in as a bridesmaid (if any) to cover shower costs?
The bride is not being picky about our hair, but all the other bridesmaids are going to a salon to get theirs styled. Should I do the same so I don't look like the odd one out?
I'm a bridesmaid for the first time, so I don't know what's really expected of me. The bride is my sister and all the other bridesmaids are friends with each other (so I'm already feeling like the odd one out even though I've met most of the girls a couple times).
How can I make all this less awkward for myself? These are all very girly girls and very outgoing. I'm more of a tomboy and rather shy, especially in situations where I don't really know the people.
why are my friends so lame/have no taste in men?
for everyone else: do you like frogs?

edit: tax rebate http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/columnists/article3228105.ece?openComment=true
edit again: for the tl;dr
He wants the Internal Revenue Service to mail out rebate cheques to all taxpayers. The Administration hasn’t publicly put a number on the plan yet, but officials say they are thinking about $800 for individuals and $1,600 for families. In total that would inject about $150 billion (£77 billion) into the US economy. That represents about 1.2 per cent of gross domestic product, a not insignificant amount. If Congress can get its act together, that would be in people’s pockets some time over the summer, perhaps just as the slump is really starting to hurt.
A proposal doing the rounds on Capitol Hill would reduce or eliminate the rebate for people earning more than $85,000 a year. It would also find ways to get money to people who pay no taxes, as they would gain nothing from a rebate. Democrats also want to increase spending, perhaps with some money aimed specifically at the moribund housing market

Is anything pissing you off tonight?
Also, I have basically decided that I am going to by a laptop with my refund moneys. But I has a problem, I dunno where to buy one,AND I don't know what specifications I'm looking for. I'm looking for one that will be good for net surfing, e-mail, picture editing, movie watching, the occasional online game and fic writing.
What specifications should I be looking for?
I could get it off overstock.com but am not sure which are the best deals.
But I could also get one from walmart.com because I get a discount and they have free site to store which would totes save on s/h. yay that.
Then there is usanotebook.com which looks good too...but argh... this is why I needs yalls haylp!!
Is a refurbished laptop and bad thing? Just wondering.
What specifications should I be looking for?
Is it possible to get a really good laptop for under 1,000 dollars?
What is the oddest compliment you've ever gotten?
I had a customer see me standing at the door (I was door greeting that night) and she sighed heavily and said. "Ugh, I don't want to go shopping now. My favorite cashier isn't on a register." ^_^ kinda made my day. Okay so it's not really odd, but cashiers don't get complimented at all very often so meh....

I sent here the following text, "one thing has bugged me. Did you ever do the race for life thing"r.
The response I received was, "interesting that you didn't just ask me before now about something that bugged you so much also flattering that you should assume it would be related to laziness. I could have run the 5km of road on my own i suppose. No i haven't bothered to do it yet. Because of the floods it was postponed till earlish next year. Do you really wonder why i don't miss you?"
I called the charity and the event hadn't been postponed. So I asked them by text about it, and they blocked me(and my girlfriend) on every website. What do you think of this person? And what would you do - let it go, demand the money back or let everyone else who sponsored them know?
