EDIT: How do the various recommendation systems compare?
Ideally it should allow me to easily look up the full song name and info easily and categorize/tag it somehow. Anything that helps build the list faster, like song recommendation, is good (like Pandora or last.fm). If possible, it should also make it easy to buy the songs in the list (or pirate them if such software exists to help automate that for a large list) and export the list.
i want to see what i would potentially look like if i lost 100 lbs. =\
EDIT: preferrably girls about 5'5" - 5'7"
thanks for reminding me :)
After spending too much time on the internet, the word pwn became an important part of my every-day vocabulary. Most adults, however, don't know what this word means, and it's kind of difficult to explain. And it's unprofessional.
My issue is that there doesn't seem to be an equivalent word in the English language, except maybe "own", but that is similarly juvenile-sounding. Do you have any examples of words I can use to replace "pwn", while I wait for it to become part of general usage?
i was very delighted by this. it made my week.
anything good going on with you TQCers?
Are you happy with your body?
2. what's the worst insomnia-related experience you've ever had?
Also - there's nothing cuter than a sleeping kitty, Y/Y?
I hardly slept at all. About two hours of really shitty, drift in-and-out of consciousness sleep. Now, I have to get ready, take a shower, drive two hours, go to class from 8-3:15 straight (although I do have about a hour break, where I'm in school, with really no place to sleep...), and drive back two hours. I'm really, really afraid I'm gonna run off the road, but I have no choice. My sister goes too (and can't drive), so my dad is going to MAKE ME drive (logic isn't a virtue in my family..).
So what are some tips and tricks to help me stay awake and aware? To concentrate? Meds? Tips for running on very, very little sleep?
Class isn't SO important for me to be energetic, but it's very important that I'm aware when I'm driving back, 'cause I'm a shitty driver immediately. I also have two tests today (one is a placement), but if I have to choose, I'd rather have the energy burst while driving and stay alive.
EDIT: Thanks for all your responses. I took the angry parent over dying. (I also walked outside, felt really sick, and projectile vomited all over my dad's car). So he drove her to school, and back.
( Collapse )
Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Do you remember what it was called?
bet he got the shock of his life when he got back into bed with her.
I live with 6 other girls ... he's not going to have a clue which one of us it was he just scarred for life.
Should I tell them it was me and lessen the shame for him.. or let him stew?
I don't like him anyway.. it wouldn't be so bad if he was too embarassed to come back over..
Can you tell me a weird quirk about yourself?
Whilst we're on the subject.. I hate going to the toilet. I don't know why but it stresses me out. I'll put it off and off and off until I'm positively desperate and on the verge of wetting myself.. only then will I succumb and go.
What time do you usually go to bed/sleep?
argh, I'm an owl lately. I'll get up for class, but go back to bed as soon as I can and stay up all night. Such a bad habit.
2a. What are your favorite restaurants?
2b. What type of food is it?

I'm going to go donate blood at 10:45, and i have classes at 1:00.
This is all being done at my school, so should I just get my stuff and take it along and hang out at school after?
What goes on in the process of donating? I used to have a Red Cross Doner card, but its hiding from me, or disappeared in the whole process of me moving about 4 times this last year. Would they just issue me another one?

How were you a brat as a little kid?
I was spoiled and moderately bossy.
1. Nice lady, owns her own salon. Cheaper, at around $25. I've been there once and she styled my hair kinda soccer mom (the cut itself was fine). She also cuts my husbands hair.
2. Salon that gives me "WOW!" hair. I pay around $50 for a cut. They assign you a hairdresser when you book an appointment, so the last 3 times I've gone, I've always had a different person do my hair.
I wouldn't need to tip at either place, so don't factor that into your decision.
Thanks everyone! I booked an appointment with the $50 salon.
TQC, what should I do for my birthday? I live in upstate NY within easy driving distance of both Syracuse and Albany.

I 'm gonna be buying a house in a few months and my future mother in law and I are going to start looking on Sundays. I don't have a realtor, so how can I go view the houses? Theres a few I've found on realtor.com, who do I call to show me the houses?
Lately she was bitching to all my coworkers that I was coming in late every morning. She told them I was supposed to be there at 8.30, even though my contract says 8.45. (I know it doesn't sound a big deal, but because of the ways the buses work I have to leave around half an hour early, and then waste twenty minutes outside work.).
I ignored it because she never bought the problem up with me. However, recently she has been plastering rosters everywhere saying that I start at 8.30 so I took the issue up with her and said that I was contracted to start at 8.45. She said "well your contract is wrong".
Now EVERYTIME there is a problem (such as me calling in sick) she'll make up rules and if I say "The contract states bla bla" she'll just say "the contract is wrong" and won't listen to anything I say. I can't take it above her head because she's friends with the big bosses.
What can I do to show her the contract isn't wrong, but SHE is?
If that was tl;dr ...
What is the worst boss you've ever had? What did they do to piss you off?
What can my BF and I do for Valentine's that is fairly inexpensive and fun? Besides the normal movie?
Edit: Thanks! I'm totally considering the sex in the theater. We live in a fairly metropolitan area, so finding places aren't a problem, I just have no idea what type of places to go to. Or things to do.
Now tell me, why do Canadians eat that?

Okay so my Fiance and I finally have a place together. We live with his cousin who is okay, but his girlfriend who is pregnant lives here too. At first I thought she was nice but now she's a rude, mean, pathetic individual (I'd really like to use other words.)
For instance, the modem is in HER bedroom rather than the computer room and I have my cable wire going to her room now. This morning I found my wire on the floor and wanted to plug it in. She went ballistic on me and doesn't want me to use it for God knows why. She left earlier and left a note saying "If your [sic] reading this, leave my modem alone." Her boyfriend gave me permission to (he is at work right now).
Without causing disruption, what should I do about her nasty attitude (that she has for no reason)?
Currently I'm liking Collin Munroe's "I Want Those Flashing Lights" and Scott Simons "Umbrella".
Yeah, yeah... I know everyone's gonna list that Dynamite Hack song... that's old hat.

How would that make you feel? Are you surprised adults can act like this in the workplace?

During the "lap" time periods at a public pool, is it one person to a lap lane? As in, if there are 6 lanes, only 6 people can swim at a time? If all the lanes are full, do you have to sit there waiting for a lane to open?
EDIT: right now my office points south. the new office would point north. the view i have right now is essentially unobstructed, and i can see 50+ miles to the south on a clear day. the new office has a slight view to the north, but most of it is obstructed by a black building. i don't NEED the extra space, but there's no telling when the next opportunity to move to a bigger office may arise. im also on the opposite side of the floor from my bosses, so they really have to make an effort to come stop by.

Is it cheating to get some wrong on purpose?
Let's assume the person they're fighting has back up, too, and no weapons are involved.
Let's say that person cheated on you with a person of the same sex.
Is that "better" or "worse" than if they cheated on you with a person of the opposite sex? Would it hurt you more, less, or about the same? Why?
1a. What should I make icons/graphics of? (Seriously, I dont care what sort of subject I get replies of...I'm itching to make something but I just am too indecisive to chose)

And on another topic.
2. Can anyone recommend an exceptionally good oil free moisturizer? I'm easy to please with body lotion but I haven't been able to find a moisturizer I like for my face.
You start a new job, first day at the company. You are given 2 choices of location - either a regular cubicle, average size, perhaps slightly below what your position would merit (say you would merit a small office) OR what is clearly the best office in the place, large, great view, well furnished, and clearly way above your job level. Other people more senior had the chance at the office but they declined due to the hassle of moving. HR freely offers you the choice of either, both choices are sanctioned by the company, the only repercussion would be what others might think if you chose one or the other.
Which do you choose?
1. I am actually only 5'2" but i always say that i am 5'5"-5'6" because i wish i was taller.
2. I am allergic to gold.
3. I don't know how to swim.
4. My boyfriend is 10 yrs older than me.

1) Do you think it would be weird to date someone who shared the same name as your mother, father, sister, or brother?
2) Which of the following would be the best name for an environmentally friendly laundry detergent? :
(for those of you curious about number 2, i'm working on a project for a communications class about brand name selection... thanks!)
Do you prefer older theaters or newer ones?
I have a bad cavity. I have no money/insurance. I went to a dentist and was checked out. I can have the root canal for 2000.00 Two. Thousand.
Or I can have it extracted for 150 bucks. The dentist "strongly advised AGAINST that" because its my primary molar and does all my chewing blah blah blah.
TQC, wtf should I do?
Why have we only had one sunny day in the past month?
What has you depressed today?
If you aren't depressed, what has you in a good mood today?
I must have wanted entertainment for my afternoon poooooooo
I seriously need to drink less coffee. I'm strung out!!!!
I see they have aprons, but I'm not looking for that, I want to find one of the jackets (or at least find a vendor who sells something similar), and thus far can't find it, on their website, googling, or otherwise. So I pose it to TQC.
What's your favorite website for it's CONTENT? The design can be shitty.
I'm so tired but I can't fall asleep, so I took melatonin a few hours ago. Still can't sleep, so I just took a benedryl. It's only 4:30PM but I don't care.
When was the last time you had to go to the hospital? What for?
Umm...I think when I accidentally OD'd on Ambien. I woke up in the hospital and was like "what the hell?" No memory of it what so ever. Ambien = the devil for me.
pour moi, it would be that I like fantasy and Japanese animation!
Today the first 3 eps of the 7 ep run were leaked onto torrent sites.

what are you embarrassed about?
is there something about one of your friends that causes you embarrassment?
What sort of bag do you carry your books/laptop in?
I have a bookbag that I carry my laptop in as well as my books but I never seen to have enough space for the smaller things. Carrying another bag seems weird... any bag suggestions?
It is half full. I am afraid to open it.
What do you think is in it and why do you think she put it at the back of my closet? Should I open it?
Edit: Consensus was that I should open it, so I put on yellow rubber gloves and did so. It was half full of... chocolate milk. Shocking, I know. I mustered up some courage and smelled it because I wondered it maybe there was alcohol in it, but nope. It just smelled like sour milk.
So the question remains: Why was it in my closet???
2) Will you post a picture of a clothing/accessory item that you think everyone should own?
3) Why did having an upper respiratory infection give me no appetite all week?
4) What song do you currently have stuck in your head?
Can any one find me really good pictures(as in traditional drawings and paintings as opposed to photographs and anime-style characters) of Asian style rabbits?
2. Can you recommend a multivitamin for women that you like? Mine makes me throw up in the morning because I'm supposed to eat it with food, and I generally don't get hungry until noon. And by then I'm somewhere else with no vitamins on hand.
3. What's your favorite recipe? Bonus points if you post it for me!

So TQC where can I get a cool icon?
According to my fellow members my former icon looked like a big claw or a "mummy hand".
Secondly, what are you doin' tonight?
I'm seeing "The Orphanage". I'm excited to actually be doing something besides prowling TQC, watching lame movies and stuffing my face.
also, which biography on James Dean would you recommend? i don't know much about his life aside from his career.
I can't really think of anything that I'm passionate about except for something that will probably get me made fun of by everyone except my friends for the rest of the year (gay rights). I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to present the paper, and 99% of the people in my class are bigoted jerks.
Should I risk what is a pretty limited social status anyway and do gay rights, or should I write a paper about how ponies eating butterflies is wrong (ie. something I couldn't really give two shits about)?
And if that's tl;dr:
1. What song is next in your playlist? Do you like the song?
What is your favorite fairy tale?
Do you buy clothes off the internet?
what's for dinner tonight?
So there are alot of questions about what tattoos you have, what you look like at this exact moment and I really want to respond to them, but I don't know how to put a picture in a comment. I know how to put them in a post, but when I'm replying to somebody else's post I'm clueless.
Edit: Thanks for the code :D
TQC, where is my phone? I turned out all the lights and called it (it's on silent) with no luck. Obvs it could not have left my house.
Should I just stop touching things and go to bed so I don't lose anything more (it's 7:30 pm)?
If he changed his mind a few days later, would you be able to forgive him or will it still be over?
If you would forgive, could you ever trust this person again completely?
anything i should be aware of? share experiences

3. What is the last awesome discovery you made?
WTF is peach cobbler? Do you have a recipe?
1. Pastry on top?
1a. Pastry crumbled on top?
1b. Pastry latticed on top?
2. Cake-y base? Or pie-like base?
The person I'm making it for is from Virginia, if that's of any use.

What's your favorite recipe for black and white cookies? I'm absolutely craving them, but no one around here even knows what they are. One more reason I'm way too far away from New York I say.
When was the last time you worked out? 15 mins ago
I used to have a PC, now I have a Mac. I put a bunch of stuff from my PC onto my external hard drive and now I run it from my Mac. It's been working fine except now it's become read only, so I can't put more stuff on it. Anybody have any ideas? What can I do?
Why do people say "I'm good" when they aren't? Why don't people say, "eh, I'm okay" or "I'm horrible"?
I wouldn't have minded hearing why he looked just as sad as I did.
ETA - if you've ever experienced a close death, did it make you think of your own death? As I watched my Grandma tossing and turning in pain today, I couldn't help but see myself in 60 years, lying there myself and I absolutely couldn't shake the thought.
So, my question is for those of you who like tattoos/have them.
What are they of?

#2. I hate the two coworkers that are here with me. They both invited me out; I said no and ordered a bottle of wine from room service. I feel tipsy from two glasses. Will you please entertain me via fun jokes and stories and pictures? It won't take much. And why do my coworkers suck so much?
#3. if you're in a live-in relationship, do you LOVE sometimes getting away and having an entire hotel bed to yourself? I do. I miss my husband but I'm fucking thrilled to actually get some blanket tonight.
I hurt my back on sunday(you can read my journal for the back story). I know HOW I hurt it, but I don't know what I hurt. What is a good website where I can run through a list of symptoms and have it tell me if I just strained a muscle, or if I broke my spine? I tried webMD but maybe I just suck at finding stuff because it kept just telling me that I had symptoms of back pain... thanks captain obvious :-\
