I just found out that on my colleges library, I can listen to Naxos for free. Being the music nerd I am, I looked up all my favorite pieces and have been listening to them non-stop.
How old are you?
Where do your pets sleep?
How many pillows are on your bed?
I have a little spot in the corner of my mouth that's been feel a little sore and irritated for the past couple of days. Today it looks a little red. How can I tell if it's a cold sore or not? I've never had one before :\
I like playing around with makeup. I usually just use some neutral browns if I have the time to do my makeup, but my sister got me a set of eyeshadows that has some pretty (and not too extreme, surprisingly) colors. Which color should I try out tomorrow?
(1) fishnet: somewhat bright purple/pink (2) honey: shimmery gold (3) ransom: close to indigo (4) graffiti: somewhat bright green (5) zero: black (6) peace: a peacock-like blue (7) shag: light bronze (8) scratch: shimmery peach/pink (9) underground: a cooler shade of light brown
do the homework now and run the chance of falling asleep while reading
sleep and do the homework tomorrow knowing full well that the 3 hours of homework will take all day and get finished in time for class if i'm lucky
halp me TQC!
what is so SUPER about super tuesday in your opinion, non-serious answers recommended.
Why does this happen?
i'm so excited about probably getting my own place soon so i can't sleep because i want it so bad. but i have to be up for work in 4.5 hours so this sucks.
Basically there are 2 people and they are each given some type of shoplifting mission (ex. car from car wash, 6 dildos & 6 dvds, suit, everything off the table at a restaurant). Obviously the goal is not getting caught.
EDIT: If you were caught you would get in the same trouble as you would if it weren't part of the game show. If you weren't caught you'd be able to keep the items.
Which one do you like most?
Do you watch any comms just because they're amusing, even if they take themselves very seriously?
I have a strange fascination with multiplicity, and I can't figure out why. All of the members are just so delightfully quirky and odd.
How about when they've been discussed fourteen times in the past two days?
Anyone else really like the show Third Watch, based solely on the episodes that come on at four in the morning?
What do you do to get rid of ants?
How do you find their source?
(Raid isn't working, only gets rid of the symptom, not the cause)
Not showering for four days is disgusting, right?
What do you like people to do?
How about your pets?
Or your kids/someone under your care?
Do we all go to hell anyway?
What do you think of that?
Is it really the solution to curing the obesity epidemic in America?
If not, then what is the solution TQC'ers??
What should I do now? IDEAS, go!
I think the great white shark!
If yes, for who?
If no, why not?
What's something you misheard?
Bonus points if it's a funny story : )
I go in, they take care of my health for nothing or a very small fee.
2)How is your health?
pretty poor. I have depression, anxiety, and sinuses.
3)Do you think a person's health is mostly under their control?
Not really- people get cancer, broken bones or other issues even when they are taking good care of their health
2. What are you looking forward to this month?
3. What are you dreading this month?
4. Will you be eating pancakes today?
Does anyone know what these bubble things are? Or if/ where I can find one? They look like so much fun.
EDIT: Thanks to you guys, I found this link to Zorbs! Too bad I'd have to travel at least to the Smoky Mountains to try it out...
Should I go?
Chronic diarrhea or chronic constipation?
How many sexual partners would a potential SO have to have before you'd decide not to date them?
Please explain your answers.
what is your sideshow name & talent?
eta: so what's stopping you, you bunch of unmotivated pansies?
How do you do the things you do?
But, today being the primaries, I know it will come up and I know exactly who they are both voting for. I am voting for someone else.
What would you do if you were me and politics came up in conversation. I am 99.99% sure it will.
Do I just nod and smile? I don't care to discuss it with them, they are the kind of people that think if you don't vote for who they vote for you are WRONG!
If someone close to me has head lice should I do the treatment on myself, too?
(I can't find any lice on me.. & I used that comb thingy through my hair to look for them...)
Have you ever seen a louse up close?
Yes, last night.. I wanted to throw up.
What are you doing this week that you are looking forward to?
Starting school, sort of..
How much rent do you pay (are utilities included)?
How big is your place?
I have an assignment, and it has to be on paper that is this color:
The color of the font I use on it has to look REALLY good on this color (it's not for an art class, my teacher is just insane). Right now I'm using this blue, if only to be able to get my actual work done and worry about the color later:
Needless to say, it looks really bad. What should I use instead?
And no, she's not allergic. She has been prescribed penicillin many times in the past.
Anyone have any experience in doing something like this? Know anyone who has done something like this? I think it's a somewhat common technique. Any warnings about this?
I have many reasons, but mostly I think I would be a terrible mother because I have little patience when it comes to others and am very easily irritated.
2. Do you believe that any of it is staged or fake?
(I believe that it's all real. Call me naive, but yeah.)
3. Who's your favorite cast member?
(I'm fond of Steve, even though he's a pussy.)
4. What was your favorite episode? What's the scariest one you ever saw?
(Favorite AND scariest was the St. Augustine Lighthouse episode!)
(and for those of you how don't watch the show):
1. Have you heard of the show?
2. Why don't you watch it?
TQC WHO CALLED ME?
It was creepy.
Have you ever burned noodles?
Also... with those government rebates... do you have to have worked this year? I worked in 2007, but not in 2008 as of yet.
My family, while tearful at moments, spends most of the time sitting around talking, catching up, and laughing. We laugh a LOT at our funerals, especially at incredibly inappropriate moments. Just curious what they're like for other people.
And while we're on the subject..
2.) What are some words we can put on our favors that aren't the usual boring crap like "love" and "devotion"?
I skipped going to lunch today because it's rainy, dreary and depressing out. And I don't want to eat lunch alone ... again.
So I have a question for you:
Do you often eat lunch alone or with a friend or group of friends?
If you eat lunch alone regularly, do you enjoy it or dread it?
What can I do to not dread it so much?
Or maybe I should just find some new friends who have the same free block of time to each lunch with every day!
2) It's freezing in your office, everyone is wearing coats. You found a space heater under your area. Do you share, or keep it all to yourself so you can get nice and cozy?
3) White rice cooked in beef broth with green beans is decidedly bland, but I have half a pot left. What can I do to spice it up without adding meat of any kind?
Do you have to file your taxes first and then they send it?
EDIT: you mean it's all fake?!
I think I am dying. I went and got some mroe airborne and some fruit drops and stuff, but I still feel like crap. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow, but please help me figure out a way to write a one page paper, responses to two stupid questions, 5 questions testing knowledge and abilities of situational leadership theory and study for a quiz all while stuffing envelopes and surfing TQC at work and while feeling like I've been hit by a Mac truck. (no runny nose or horrible cough, just whole torso acheyness, much worse when I move around, and a slight cough that makes the torso pain feel like a million tiny knives are stabbing me. I'm also dizzy, confused, and sleepy as hell)
It is 1:13 pm, these things must be done by 5pm and I have class that goes until 9pm and then have to drive for an hour to get home after that. I've been up since 7 am and the longer I'm awake the crappier I feel. I can't really go home from work and come back because I live an hour away and by the time I get home I'd have to turn around and come back in another hour. I also don't think I have friends on campus who live here other than one or two who are in calss and unavaliable so I can't get their key and sleep in their room for a bit either...
So TQC, am I going to die? If I die then I won't pass my classes and that will make me sad. If I skip my assignments and quiz to go home and sleep I won't get an A in my class and that will make me sad too.
Help me tqc :(
So, TQC, I'm asking for your assistance in an ongoing mystery involving a headache that I've had for close to three weeks now. It's just now getting terribly unbearable and I wonder if I should go to my doctor, even though I'm not covered under any plan yet [I'm working on it, but I don't know how long it'll take].
What I should tell you first is no medicine has worked. At all. Not migraine meds, not aspirin, not decongestants... nothing.
-I am just getting over a cold, but my airways are completely clear right now and the headache started well before the cold showed up.
-My ears are clogged and I have to pop them to hear things like I'm not in a different room.
-The front of my head feels like it weighs 304234823 pounds, but there is a very localized pain behind my eyes and at my temples
-I'm crazy dizzy. I can walk, but I have trouble concentrating on things... like books. This is making homework and studying very difficult.
So what's my diagnosis, Docs?
today, the memphis city schools were closed because uh..it's cloudy..and kinda hot.
eta: my university was closed for the same reason.
2. Many people don't like discussing which candidate they voted for, but do you think it is bad form to just ask if someone voted without asking for names?
If you were king/queen of the world what is the first thing you would do?
If you have, did you ever find accounts that should be on your parent’s credit?
Would you report the error even though the credit gave you a higher score?
Why do you think my parents credit is popping up on my end?
I am talking about morgage and home depot credit card.
My Mom and I have the same exact name except I have a middel name. I always get her mail no matter how often we complain to companies and the post master. Now her stuff is on my credit. Her credit is fantastic but it is still crazy annoying.
Breathe Me - Sia... LA Song - Beth Hart
What songs do you listen to when you're pissed?
Break Stuff - Limp Bizkit... People = Shit - Slipknot
I had a phone interview today for a job. The person who interviewed me was the CEO of the association.
Why did he ask me how I keep “mentally.. and physically.. fit?” LOL
However, it just occurred to me that, although I think I'm registered with my party, I am not actually sure. I can't remember if I checked that box 2 years ago when I registered to vote in CA, and I am not at home so I can't look for my voter registration card.
How can I figure out if I'm a registered party member or not? Most of me thinks I did register with the party, but it's possible that I said I was an independent.
ty for helping me participate in democracy :)
ETA: I will just take care of it at the polling place.
Which one of these would be the hardest for you to give up?
Pick 2 of these that you think would be enhanced if you experienced them together? Like chocolate-covered cheese or caffeinated meat or a soft drink that gave you an orgasm. Be creative with your 2 items
Lastly, for $1,000,000, would you be willing to dress only like the Monopoly guy (Pennybags) when you went out, and you had to light a cigar with a $20 in every restaurant you patronized, in front of the wait staff. You don't have to smoke it. Plus, you're not allowed to leave a tip ever again. That's something commoners do
What do you wish for and who do you give your other wish to?
(You can't wish for money or more wishes)
Why did you upload it?
( Collapse )
When do you first remember using the internet?
What did you use it for when you first used it with some regularity?
1. The traditional sandwich and piece of fruit?
2. The too-much-of-a-good-thing uninspired packet of chips, chocolate bar and cookie/biscuit?
3. The 'last night's dinner leftovers'?
4. The yuppie pre-packaged lunch combination, with the pieces of cheese, cracker, dipping sauce, sausage and treat all coming in the one plastic container from a particular food manufacturer?
5. The slightly non-traditional lunch contents that were later superficially given the blanket 'ethnic food' branding?
6. The hardcore health food box with the carrot and celery sticks, bean sprouts, rice cakes and hommous that had you making friends with type 2 for your mutual survival?
7. Some other category not mentioned above?
If you are/will be a parent, what version of lunch do/will you mainly be preparing for your kids?
If so, what are they?
dsc is for life (It's a motto of the divide social club, a club that I'm a part of)
not getting pregnant again
recognizing behavioral patterns
Are you in a tax shelter thingy? What about a retirement plan? How's that workin' out for ya?
I did it, there are problems and come to find out I'd have to pay like forty dollars for the entire thing. Right now, I can't afford to shell out forty so I went on a hunt to find a different place.
I came across Errordoctor.com
It states that it been on cnn, well as other places for it's authenticity approval but I'm still not too sure.
Has anyone ever had experience with registery problems?
Can you suggest any helpful/authetinicated registery cleaner programs?
Has anyone used errordoctor.com?
Is it legit? (I'd hate to shell out twenty bucks, and find out it's nothing but a scam. Woe is me.)
Do you have to plug your nose when you go under water?
How do you like your pizza?
Square with light sauce and lots of cheese. Bacon, too.
I've already got all the inside joke songs, and the grade eight vitamin c (duh) graduation song.
What other (cheesy or serious) songs should I add?
I have an interview at one on Thursday.
I really need this job. And I want it. Badly. Can you tell me what to expect at the interview or some tips? Thanks in advance.
What company do you use for health insurance? Do you recommend it?
Are there any that I should definitely stay away from?
Even if you are uninsured (like me currently) any input from past experiences would be appreciated.
This weird kid in my astronomy class tried to tell me this story today, he 'tells it to all his friends so they know what he is like'. He said he was having sex with his girlfriend, and instead of saying "I love you" or "Oh My God" he said "I love you, God." I know this is not a true story, and I NEED to know where it's from. I'm sure I've heard it before, I just don't know where. I googled it, and had no luck. Anyone know?
My friend and I are having a death battle during Lent. We are both nonreligious, but are competing in an exercise of self control. What should I give up? I already don't drink soda, party, eat wheat, sweets, or any of the normal ideas for Lent that I can think of. Any suggestions?
I suddenly remembered that post last night and couldn't sleep for fear of blowing my nose. It haunts me still. I must know what happened. I hope she went to a doctor :(
EDIT: found *the post*, and we've been updated.

Do you step in and defend him and run the risk of losing your own reputation in the eyes of the not so close friends, but making a powerful gesture of loyalty to your close friend? Or do you stay silent and support him after? Why?
i can send them and people receive them.
but, when they try to reply it says they sent on other peoples' phones.
but, i never receive it.
have you ever had this problem?
how can i fix it?
i have cingular. and, just recently got the new razr v3xx.

(I'm vegetarian on the best of days, so keep your sausages to yourself).
ETA: I'm just a glutton for punishment, people! Okay?? I'm just weird. I like to challenge myself.
Have you ever had something similar happen? One of your friends putting down a mutual interest, in a serious manner? Did you just ignore it or did you have a stronger reaction, such as trying to argue with them?
Mine is beef barley with vegetables.
2. What do I need from this website to get started doing moxibustion with my acupuncture needles? If I get the mini needle moxa, do I need anything else (e.g. the stuff in the moxa accessories section)?
Anyone else had a similar situation in high school? A teacher that didn't care about your horrible attendance?
Did you eventually start showing up for the whole class or did skipping out become too much of a habit?
What is a saying that has stuck with you since you were young and will for life?
Anyone else love Viva Pinata for the XBOX360?
-We seem to a lot and make people stare, but half of us are theater majors.
-"Let he among us without sin be the first to condemn."
So it made me wonder... how are YOU known to your friends?
If you don't have any friends, how do your imaginary friends see you? Does everyone in your special little world love you?
And on an unrelated note, but hell, it's on my mind.... Do you have tornadoes in your area right now? I'm getting tired of the siren going off outside over here.
(alarm clocks are not a valid answer)
Any gossip? Hot hookups?
Apparenlty the version of Adaptec (2.5) I have is too old to write data/image CDs I jsut got from Stapels, or ready them to take info.
Does anyone have any insights and is there a computer oriented community somewhere where I could get some help?
I'm still trying to finish my sociology project, and if you could answer the following, it would be a HUGE help! This is only for people who grew up in a single-parent household, and are over the age of 18. Thanks so much!!
1) What is your age?
2) What is your gender?
3) What is your education level (high school, Associates, Bachelors, etc)?
Once again, thanks so much for your help!
1. what do you look forward to everyday?
Besides blizzards and extreme cold, we get a couple tornadoes in the area come springtime, nothing huge, but other than that the weather is very dull here.
Are you celebrating Mardi Gras?
I have classes from 10:30 till 3:30, then from 5:30-9:20 tomorrow.
Should I go to class?
What is your miracle cure?
It has a theme - "what I wanted to be when I'm grown up"/
What should I dress as that is easy but effective?
What did you want to be when you grew up?
EXAMPLE: I know a woman who goes on her boyfriend's exes MySpace and then whines about all the mean things that were written.
Wouldn't it make more sense to just not look?
Are people really that desperate for attention?
What do you classify yourself as? (Christian, Jew, atheist, etc.)
Have you ever seriously questioned what you believe in? Did you convert?
(I ask because I would almost kill to have a Cerulean or Purple Mountain Majesty right now.)
2. I have an 8 year old male cat. For the majority of his life, he has gone outside when he needs to. This has worked out pretty well until recently. The neighbors downstairs bought a German shepherd puppy who does not like cats at all. She chases him when she's loose, searches frantically whenever she smells him outside, and barks whenever she sees him. Both my husband and I have had pets killed by German shepherds, so we're quite worried about this. He's afraid to go outside now, and has had several accidents indoors (something he hasn't done since he was a kitten). The dog's owner and I are planning to make another attempt at socializing the two, how should we go about doing it, if at all? Also, what are some ways to stop the indoor accidents without bringing back a litter box?
Who lives in or around Stafford, Virginia that has some free time and wants to rescue me from my in laws?
Does sunshine make you happy?
If yes, why?
What do you think about right before you fall asleep?
1.) There is a biologoical/nuclear attack on a major city within the United States before the 2008 elections, which is declared to be a terrorist attack. Shortly thereafter, marshall law is declared, thus cancelling said elections. Dismissing the likelihood of this hypothetical situation, what is your first reaction?
2.) Let us get a bit more hypothetical. A month into marshall law a new security measure is being implemented from above: citizen verification chips, wherein small, GPS beacons with all personal and monetary information programmed into them are surgically implanted within citizens. Those who refuse are no longer members of the nation but enemy combatants. In order to work, drive, purchase goods using legal tender, you must have one of these chips. Do you get one?
3.) It has been three months since marshall law has been declared. War with Iran is underway. Concentration camps have been set up for those who have objected conscientiously against the administration. Are you chipped, obedient, and alive? Are you in the country still? Where have you gone? What are you doing, at this point?
For those living outside of the United States:
4.) How's life?
2. I have a cigarette burn right below my eyebrow (mardi gras gets dangerous). Is there anything i can do to speed the healing process, because it looks ridiculous as you can imagine. Will this leave a scar?!
I got an e-mail saying she had to cut her ribs to look like that. It looks very obviously photoshopped, but do people actually do that to themselves? Ack!
EDIT: I thought she got surgery to look like that, I had no idea what corset training was or that corsets could make your waist look that thin. wow!
what does she mean?
how do i go about being this..uh.."kid"?
If given the choice to help decide who in your city would be rewarded the "key to the city" what qualities/qualifications do you think they should have? why?

Where did the two of you meet?
Any ideas, ways, or things I can do so I can stop the pain?

What else can I use?
I know everyone here hates homework questions. Hopefully everyone doesn't hate these sort of questions just as much.
Note: I am a 17 year old female. I cannot have anything containing aspirim. I cannot consume alcohol, partake in any substances, and I have to wake up tomorrow morning and attend school.
ETA #2: Symptoms include runny nose, semi-sore throat, and slight fever. I think it's just a head cold, but rrrgh.
Now for the question. Would the warm air running along the glue on the sticky side of the duct tape for a long while generate any health problems? I've searched Google and only found "using heat to remove duct tape glue" sites, a little too short-term for my tastes.
ETA: Said vent is on the ceiling, in case that affects some people's answers.
So last year I made a layer cake shaped like one of these candies. It was pink and said "BE MINE" on top. I was thinking of either doing the same thing this year, or making heart shaped sugar cookies and applying the same idea.
So what do you think I should make this year: cake or cookies? What colors and sayings should I use?
For those of you who have an SO, do you ever check out other people? Do you feel guilty about it?
Does anyone know how long it would take a small package (a CD, to be exact) to go from Santa Monica, California (zip code 90404) to Nova Scotia (postal code B4P 2P2)? On the CanadaPost website there's a feature where you can input the origin zipcode and the destination zipcode and it will give you the approximate delivery standard. I'm not having much luck on the USPS site.

Can you tell me some of your room mate horror stories? What about your funny room mate stories?
2)what are you avoiding?
3)what books do you think random internet people should read.

the following letters "face to the left"

the following letters "face forward"
i l o v w x
A H I M O T U V W X Y
Do you agree with this assessment or do you think that ALL letters equally "face" either left or right or forward?
If you agree with the above assessment, do you think that some words are stronger or weaker DIRECTLY IN RELATION to letters facing left or right?
Edit: I asked because I was thinking about going to the Glastonbury Festival as my last sort of hurrah in Europe before I have to go back to the U.S. Transportation from Dublin to England is pretty cheap, so that's no so much of a concern, but apparently last year tickets cost £145 (they haven't even announced prices for this year yet), which sounds pretty sucky to me, especially once translated into $. Also, once I looked around the official website, it seems kind of...beurocratic and creepy. Like you have to pre-register to be eligible for a ticket and send them your photo and stuff. I didn't really want opinions on whether I should go or not (especially since now I'm leaning towards "no") I was just wondering why concerts are so ludicrously expensive.
Or the more answerable question:
Do you know any guys that like Tokidoki?
Recently, a woman got fired (she worked for my mom) for being sloppy. For the recommendation, my mom's boss wrote she was fired not for sloppiness, but for "financial dishonesty," which is complete bullshit.
Is this even legal?
Edit - she was sloppy because she turned in her work late.
I'm eating tacos for dinner and ice cream sundaes for dessert in honor of fat tuesday :D
Two - I use both of my index fingers.
A few days ago one of my upper molars started to hurt. I was sitting on my bed and I felt a little 'pop' and it's been sore ever since. There's nothing visible on it and I just had my teeth cleaned a few weeks ago. It hurts when I walk up and down stairs and when I open my mouth outside (it's cold :P). However, it doesn't hurt when I eat ice cream or soup or anything else to make me think it's that sensitive. Right now it just feels as though it's under a lot of pressure. It's not annoying or painful, but I do know it's there. What the fuck is this?
Who thinks they are better than you?
Should I get one of my nostrilz pierced?
