Keira Knightley. I get told I look like her a lot and I think she's talented.
[I was eight, which seems a bit young but I guess they trusted me not to burn the house down.]
I'm torn between these three sleeping schedules:
a: going to sleep at my normal time and sleeping on the plane to compensate (the con here is that I might be super grouchy while navigating the airport - a task difficult enough as it is)
b: staying up all night and sleeping on the plane (the con being that I get a bit less sleep than I'm used to - only five hours)
c: going to sleep early and not sleeping on the plane (the con being that my current sleep schedule is perfect for California, with no need to adjust, and going to sleep early might ruin it)
Thoughts? If you were me, how would you go about planning your sleeping for the night before?
1. Would you draw a picture of your boobs?
Do you think they should be able to refuse to sell it to you?
Why do my professors pick the most boring topics for us to write papers on? There are so many interesting things in the text I'm using now and he chose the one topic that reads like Ben Stein reciting binary. What is/was your least favorite thing to write papers on?
Why does my house keep vibrating? It feels almost like someone has the bass on a stereo up really high, but there's no music.
2. Is Commerce Bank good?
3. Am I the only one obsessed with Bravo's "Make Me A Model"?
His litter box was cleaned out yesterday, completely dumped! He used it this morning to poop and then he took one on my WORK CLOTHES!!!
Over the past week I've been switching him from Special Kitty kibble to Iams kibble. I mixed about two pounds of Special Kitty with Iams and then after two days of that, I added another two pounds of Iams, so it shouldn't be the kibble, right? Is he pissed at me for trying to get him used to the dog?
edit: Also, last night he kept crawling on my face and he woke me up by blowing a ripe one in my face.
How should I change my hair? Sometimes I want to cut it, other times I want to dye it.
I am trying to track down The illuminatus! books. Any good places to order them in Australia? i have been to my bookshops and been given a odd look. And no luck with the Library either.
Imagine this. You're hanging out with a friend of the opposite sex. It's just the two of you standing and talking alone outside before going to see a play his sister is in. There is a slight sexual tension in the air. Suddenly, he asks if he may be forward with you. What do you think "____, may I be forward with you?" means in this situation?
I thought it meant I was about to be asked another question; one likely pertaining to if one of us were into the other.
Instead, it meant kisses! D: I was bewildered!
He's a friend of mine who I'm not attracted to physically, but his personality is an all around winner and makes up for not being "hot" and honestly, that's what I want in a guy - personality. In fact, his personality is so awesome that it's actually making me physically attracted. Good thing, yeah? Plus, he's totally cool with the idea of me leaving for a month at a time, and he's 100% opposite of your typical college guy - I wouldn't be worried about loyalty and whatnot. So with that in mind, a few questions...
1. He lives in an apartment of 5 people who I'm good friends (including the one jackass that I've ever slept with drunk, which I regretted and still do.) Will this be awkward if we start to date?
2. Said-jackass goes out of his way to make it known to me that he's seeing this new girl who lives in West Virginia. He started seeing her (or rather, screwing her) a day after he got romantic with me and tried to get me into bed again, but I said no. Lame, typical college boy. Will I look desperate, even though I'm absolutely not, dating his room mate?
3. Have you ever had a valentine? If so, will you tell me about it?
2. When you have a song stuck in your head, do you roll with it, or do you try to get it out of your head as soon as possible?
3. What do you typically do to get your mind off of the song?
1. The Past and Pending by the Shins.
2. I usually just end up singing the lyrics aloud and bothering everyone around me.
3. Listen to the song in question, and then listen to another immediately afterward. Pretty much always works for me.
tqc, when is the last time someone/something woke you up earlier than you needed to be up? did it annoy you?
My answers: No. n/a upon occasion, I must admit, but not so much any more. YES.
My fave: What is a song that has been covered by both David Bowie and Tiny Tim?
EDITED TO ADD: I don't think Mr. Tim ever recorded "The Little Drummer Boy", but the song I'm thinking of is "Fill Your Heart", written by Paul Williams and Biff Rose. Mr. Tim covered it on "God Bless Tiny Tim", Bowie on "Hunky Dory".
edit: k thanks! i was just wondering because my virus check kind of freaked out, and the update said something shifty-looking like "mozilla version 2.011.w.r77".
2. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
3. Do you or have you studied a foreign language? Which one?
i'm not talking about the normal loser-begging-desparately-for-some-actio
I have to get one of these bad boys. I can hardly contain my excitement at electrodes in my muscles. YAY.
I was looking for my gloves last night because I had to go outside and I couldn't find them, later after I came in I found them in my desk drawer where I have all my computer accessories. I think I may have aimed for the top of the desk but missed and not noticed.
I'll be traveling to the UK later in the year and I have enlisted your help to inform me of what I hands down, MUST see while I'm there. I bought the travel books and all that jazz but I want some more personal input.
I will mostly be around Manchester/London area, but if theres something worth seeing elsewhere, I'll probably venture out there.
1) What should I go see?
2) Is there anything food wise that I have to try?
3) What would you do if you were going to the UK for three weeks?
You're pregnant (or your SO is pregnant) with fraternal twins. A boy and a girl. Your SO really wants to name them, and is threatening to leave you unless you agree to one of the sets of names below. Which names do you accept?
If not, do you play any MMO?
Do you and your SO game together, online?
or are they just stupid?
( Collapse )
tell me about your struggle with an illness?
what do you think about beads?
Basically, when she goes to apply some formatting (say, underlining a piece of text), it changes the formatting of the entire document, seemingly at random. The undo list has an automatic formatting entry, so she can get her desired changes, but we're wondering, does anyone know how to turn this off? I went through the options and couldn't find anything, and I haven't used Word in over a year.
So, my boyfriend and I are heading to Toronto this weekend to see Evil Dead: The Musical. I have never been to Toronto (or to Canada at all, excluding airports). What else should we do there? We have at least one full empty day.
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Why are so many people having a bad day today?
when was the last time you took a roadtrip? where did you go?
if/when i meet stakingaclaim, how should i greet her? i should totally add a mole to my face, a'la Eva Mendes so that she'll recognize me, righhhht?
think of a TQC member (don't say who it is) will you tell me either something negative or positive about that person?
I feel like listening/looking. It can be anything!
My boyfriend and I have been together for 8 years, and it still feels weird to call his parents by their first names. I haven't been around his grandmothers that much, so I've never really had any reason to call them anything.
2. if you heard a strange noise in another part of your house that should be empty, would you go investigate? if so, would you arm yourself or go empty handed? (if you have pets, pretend all of them are accounted for in the room with you)
I have almost no work experience, so all I have to rely on is... myself. D: Do you have any good tips on how I can rock this interview and make them hire me?
Because srsly, you guys... no one in the world would hire me based on my CV.
That being said, would it be a bad idea to wear a cologne that I don't normally wear, just on the chance that we go see the dog again and I'll smell different?
Your SO is overworked at his or her job. They've been eating badly and gained a few pounds, and are utterly stressed out and needs a break, but can't afford to miss work. He or she has checked the job market, and their job pays the best in their field and it's not worth leaving. Then one day, the company changes their medical plan. Among the new changes, it now states that obesity qualifies as a disability and those exceding 300 lbs. can file for disability payment. Your SO thinks that this would be perfect, that he or she will start eating a lot and reach that 300 lb. goal, becoming obese for a few months until they can decompress and take control of their life again. A mini fat-break from their job. Your SO runs this plan by you. That it'll be 6 months at most, then they'll lose the pounds and go back to their normal weight. They just need a break because the stress is taking its toll.
1. Would you be supportive of their plan and put up with a fatter lover for the next handful of months, or would you try and talk them out of it, or would you let them do what they wanted and leave them when you were no longer attracted to them anymore?
1b)Do you tip the bag into your mouth to get said crumbs? If so, do you do this in public?
2) I'm on a "healthy eating plan", but I forgot to get groceries, so my lunch consists of a can of chef boyardee noodles. Is there anything I can buy at the CVS[it's a cross between a convenience store and a pharmacy) down the street that would be healthy, you think?
3) What's the kinkiest thing you've ever done during sex?
2: Are the communities you join,manage or create alike or very,very different?
3: What do you think LJ is missing?
4: Are you a commenter or a lurker?
5: How many hours are you here in day?
2. Do you think that happiness is something we must seek, or do you think it falls on us only when we're not looking for it?
3. On the topic of happiness, want to take my quick survey for a research project?
Please do :) --> Click for Survey

also, which would you rather have as a pet? a duck or a penguin?
My boss sounds like Ray Romano and it's creepy.
Girls, do you swallow?
And guys, how much does it matter to you if she does or not?
2. What did you do?
3. Best thing to happen?
4. Worst thing to happen?
Gay? Vain? Self-conscious? All of the above?
2. Have you ever had a professor that swears they have no attendance policy, but then passes around an attendance sheet? What does this mean?
3. What do you do in classes where you go out of sheer necessity and not desire? How do you keep from staring at the clock the entire time? (I have a 75-minute Astronomy class that will ultimately be my boredom downfall).
(For some reason, applying lotion to my hand BEFORE the fact didn't occur to me)
Of course I've done a google search, but I'm looking for people who can answer my question because they have experience doing this. So, if you've ever done this yourself, mind helping?
( Collapse )
2. do you make assumptions about a person's dating status? what brings you to those assumptions?
3. did you watch the Grammys? what's your critique of the show?
1. my coworkers just assume i'm single. i mean i am. but i didn't "tell" them, so i'm wondering how they came to this conclusion. when i was with someone i never talked about him, but they knew i was with someone. i just never told them we broke up.
2. i always just assume that everyone has a boyfriend or girlfriend. things seem nicer that way :p
3. i did watch the first half hour... but i got bored.. and went to sleep.
Okay, so for school, I've got to do a review on any film I want. I have to talk about music, camera angles, all that shiz.
What film should I review? I don't have an idea myself. >_>
Your SO says to you one day "Honey, I think I might be gay. I do love you, though, and don't want to break up. But, to accomodate my new preference, would you be willing to compromise your appearance, to keep our love life alive? Would you be willing to get a closely-cropped, boycut and start wearing ties? (if you're male, then she wants you to grow your hair long and always stay clean-shaven, and lose a lot of muscle mass)." To make your relationship work, would you be willing to make these small physical adjustments to keep him/her interested?
You give birth to a baby (or your SO does). The doctor told you that it was a girl, due to the ultrasound, but there was a hidden penis as well. Your child is both genders (what used to be termed hermaphrodite). The doctor gives you options. You can keep the child the way it is, and maybe at some point it can decide what gender to be, but it would grow up very confused. Or you could choose to have the sex of the baby altered to male or female. Your SO says that he or she is fine with whatever choice you make. What choice do you make?
Your parents come to you one day and, in a serious tone, tell you that when you were born, you were both genders (penis and vagina). At the time, they felt it best that you were only one sex, and made the decision, which is the gender you are now. Upon hearing this news, how do you feel?
Scarlett Johansson and Penelope Cruz will be involved in a graphic lesbian sex scene in the next Woody Allen movie. How do you feel about that?
Paris Hilton reportedly made out with Elisha Cuthbert in public a couple weeks ago. She's also going to be appearing in the L Word. She could be into chicks now. How does this make you feel about her?
Where should I go that won't cost a fortune?
How should I go about getting there? I don't have a car nor am I old enough to rent one.
I live in New York City and I've been considering taking a trip either in the summer after I graduate high school or in the spring to upstate or Montauk (East Hampton). Suggestions would be much appreciated. To be completely honest, I have no idea how to go about getting to either place and to what I should do while I'm there. All I know is after a long four years, a new setting that isn't as crowded would make me so happy.
Thanks in advance for any of your thoughts!
"In those 26 years, Ms. Balch has not once been the subject of discipline. Her work reviews have all been outstanding or highly-effective, with no negative reviews whatsoever. Ms. Balch works the 3-11pm shift at the Syracuse Hospital. During the shift, she makes rounds, prepares the patients for dinner.."
Hm, no. Oops.
What's your most common grammarfail? Are you able to catch your own mistakes, or do you use a proofreader?
I have people proof read everything, and I read things out loud.
I just swallowed one by accident, and I don't know how to log it in my food diary.
EDIT:Nevermind, I was not aware this was asked recently.
Ex: Killing someone is generally wrong, but sometimes it is justified, say to save 1000s of other lives.
Why is the internet filter at work so dumb?
What happened recently that was unexpected?
Here are my pictures (http://www.flickr.com/photos/allisonjennings/ )... will you help me find a love song to use with some photo?
2. for those who work (and stuff) do you eat lunch at work, or do you go out to eat?
3. for those who eat subway sandwiches, do you eat the 6 inch or the foot long sandwiches?
4. in what areas of your life do you feel inadequate?
5. what's the best thing that's happened today for you?
( Collapse )
What is love?
what song (if any) makes you weep like a baby?
for me personally...very rarely can I listen to "Wish You Were Here" (by Pink Floyd of course...if you didnt know that I'm very sad for you) without bawling.
Down in a Hole and Nutshell by AIC make me a little teary as well...mainly because I'm still remarkably sad that Layne Staley is dead :(
Do you believe in being astrologically compatible with someone?
on the upside, i have directv with tivo, so . . . which shows should i be tivo'ing? i'd like something current (i.e., shows currently in production). also, i only watch tv for maybe an hour a day, and i dont have any premium channels. im open to pretty much any type of programming, but could never really get into reality tv.
(and if youre wondering why i have directv/tivo when i dont watch much tv, i have it almost exclusively to watch baseball during baseball season).
Was this gesture
D. Combination of two or more of the above (specify please)
I think it's funny and sweet, I don't know him ALL that well but he's a really nice guy and it was even funnier that he bought three pairs, just because he didn't know which one I would want but is so detailed oriented and neurotic I think he didn't want to take the risk
Have YOU ever recieved an odd gift? Whether it was the actual gift or the person who gave it to you?
EDIT-don't know if it matters but I SO forgot to mention, I'm in upstate NY so he mailed them to me
I made the fatal error of talking about TQC to my boyfriend, and now he loves it. =[
How does this differ from how you would describe yourself?
Guys: Would you take a birth control pill? Why or why not?
Ladies: Would you ask your hunk of love to take the birth control pill? If he agreed, would you cease taking yours? Do you or would you still require your man to wear a condom even if one or the other or both of you are on the pill?
Edit: I asked a guy friend if he'd take it. He said "Not if there would be bad side effects." Later in the conversation he said he thought it was the girl's responsibility to take the pill. Why is it OK for the girl to suffer the side effects of the pill but not for the guy?
I have a ton of free time today, TQC. If I make sugar cookies today for Valentine's Day this thursday, do you think they'd still be okay by then?
My SO's parents have been going away for every holiday the past year. They said that since their youngest is now 20, that they don't have to bother with holidays anymore. Did your parents stop celebrating holidays after you got to a certain age? Do you think their is an age limit to enjoy holidays?
2. Daydream or Music Box?
3. Butterfly or The Emancipation Of Mimi?
4. Glitter or Charmbracelet?
5. Honey or Fantasy?
6. Fantasy or Heartbreaker?
7. Heartbreaker - original with Jay-Z or remix with Da Brat and Missy Elliott?
8. Vision Of Love or Emotions?
9. Hero or One Sweet Day?
10. We Belong Together or My All?
I'm feeling a bit wound-up, and I'm still in the "break everything in the room" stage so all advice is appreciated.
You hit your toe really hard. Assuming you curse, what string of curse words do you let fly?
I just sat up to pull my shirt down to make sure my butt crack wasn't hanging out, and the guy in front of me on the computer facing mine thought I was looking over the monitor at him, and he gave me this big, goofy smile, but there was also concern. Now he thinks I was looking at him, and I feel awkward.
When was the last time you did something that could have been/was misconstrued?
a cruise in the Caribbean in December
a cruise to Alaska in September
Which do you choose?
(Both trips are 7-day cruises and let's just say that the trips are at no-cost to you.)
2) Would anyone like to hire me for an awesome job, or any job where people will leave me alone, more or less? :P
3) Easter candy seems to be out. What is your favorite kind?
Have you ever done something so incredibly unhealthy?
What was it?
However, I happen to have 15 875 ml. pills of Amoxicillian-Calvulanate Potassium. The internet sort of says they can be used for everything, basically.
TQC, I know sharing prescriptions is "bad," but these will work for my friend, right?
EDIT: He's also pretty concerned that the ER/whatever will check his, uh, "legality" in being here.
Are you more or less happy today than you were/will be,
a year ago?
Want to add me as a friend on LJ?
1. How do you get over feeling super overwhelmed?
2. How do you make yourself focus when its not going so well for you?
3. What are your study/stay awake tips when books bore you to tears?
4. If I'm required 12 credit hours for insurance, and have 13 but drop a 3 hour class, will I lose my insurance? or is being registered full time the only thing that counts?
I have to make a decision. If I live on campus with my room mate of choice, I might end up getting a crappy dorm (but then again, maybe not). On the other hand, if I get an apartment with my other room mate of choice, I'll have to learn to drive by the end of the summer.
2. Rooming with friends--good idea, bad idea? Any experiences?
3. Which do you think feels worse: being constantly cynical and unhappy, or being constantly disappointed?
this has been happening a lot to me lately and it's kind of fun but kind of weird. is this normal?!
What good news did you hear today?
2) Have you ever gotten 100% on an exam? What for?
3) Where is your favourite place to relax, unwind and chill out?
4) Worst movie you've watched lately?

What's your favourite site or comm to do with something creative? Mine is http://www.notebookinhand.com
I've recently (past two months) stopped biting my fingernails. i hate the feeling of having them scraping on things. I was trying to scrub a pot today and it just felt... slightly sick. Does this happen to anyone else?
A friend and i are about to make home made icecream. What flavour should we make it? We'll go shopping.
another one: What's a good thread that's a history conversation? I'm trying to rejuvenate a history section of a forum.
Today, it was eleven degrees out (maybe less than that right now at 6pm). I saw people on campus wearing flip flops, and one boy wearing shorts. This angers me..... severely. And this is coming from someone who practically lives for flip flops. And I'll admit... in the deep of the fall season, I will party in flip flops (if I'm drunk enough to not care about my feet). But, TODAY? It was so cold! I just don't understand.
The only satisfaction I got was seeing them all suffer. Yeah, it was cold enough that it was impossible to fake it.
I play World Of Warcraft and was wondering what should I upgrade in the computer for better performance, the graphics card or the RAM itself? Looks do not matter as much as sheer speed.
Please recommend what you would get (Brand/Product), I will probably get it from newegg.com if that helps, also was looking at anywhere from $100-$300 range, thanks a ton. And sorry if this is a terrible community to post in, as I don't really know of another place to do so.
I hope that makes sense..
I have a photograph, and I need to replicate it by making it out of this quote only... if that gives you an idea.
I know it exsists, I just don't know what it's called!
What's the best coffee beverage?

ETA: my old icon is back. yay/nay?
I don't recognize the number.
1. TQC, who should I be keeping from drinking and why?
I have texted the number back but I am too impatient to wait for a response.
2. Have you received any mysterious texts lately?
3. If you could keep anyone from drinking, who would it be and why?

I have a question, do AMERICAN people (everyone whos not English) have The Big Issue homeless magazine thing?
Do you buy it? Do you sell it maybe?
Its expensive now! I went up to this guy who was selling it in my town today, and I was expecting it to be like 20p, and he was all like £1.50 please! Thats like a third of my smoking money! But I still bought it obviously because I didn't want to disapoint him now! It was nice talking to him, he wasn't really that grateful though. I didn't even read the bloody thing because I don't like reading that much and its about boring things but still...I feel quite happy about it!
Do you feel happy when you buy The Big Issue (or your version of it)?
You can insult me, if you want.
what is your favorite unconventional fried food item?
how do you make it?
...and also someone who you think is pretty because of unnautral things (ex. tanning bed, make up, teeth whitener, plastic surgery)
Do you think you could do a better job?
I am having a difficult time with a class of mine because the information is SO boring and I can't seem to remember any of it. So sharing any tips you have, or at least knowing your own study methods, would be great!
