2) If you feel like you're going to get shocked when you touch something (ex. a metal door handle), do you try to touch it really fast to get rid of the static discharge or do you just touch it however you normally would?
3) What's the last thing that shocked you?
I had to sample coffees all day!
Having never drank coffee in my life before, and drinking about 20 ounces in whole starting at 2 and ending at 11, I'm a little wired.
If you were hyper like I am right now, what would you do at 12:20 at night, with no car and 3 bucks?
Which was the best Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie?
Who was your favorite turtle?
Who did you like better?
Does being good in bed matter to you? How much?
The spell checker thing is pretty nifty.
I was watching Law & Order and realized that just about every actor on the show sucks. The regulars are okay, but everyone else sucks. Do you know any other shows like this?
What are some good Playstation and Playstation 2 games?
I found a copy of a book I want for $1.99 online. Shipping and handling is almost $5 for just the one book. Is it worth it or should I just hunt the book down in local bookstores and hope I find a bargain?
Any good survival stories out there you'd like to share? Please?
Also, should I get my boyfriend's mother a Mother's Day gift or card? I know my boyfriend probably won't end up doing anything because he's
Is that sentence grammatically correct or should it be "your"?
My friends cat eats cheeseburgers and mexi-melts, I found this very weird.
i looked on the CBS website, but didn't find full episodes. i am so entertained by this show and the man.
*EDIT* I'm not looking to download or otherwise get information on 'warez' or BitTorrent stuff. More like, where are they hiding the streaming kind of stuff that they already have on the website. i know that programs like QVC air online as well some, I didn't know if maybe they did that with CBS shows.
do you ever get a hang nail on your pinky finger that is so painful but you know if you yank it out its gonna bleed like a motherfucker?
i need a weekend job. What places are friendly towards college students who only have time to work on weekends?
Did you feel that Earthquake at 1:00am? If so, where abouts are you on the isle?
I'm right on the epicentre in Humberside, it was 4.7 on the Richter Scale. Which basically means so powerful that cup fell over somewhere in Birmingham. Scary stuff. It is strange though that the majority of the country seems to have felt the same earthquake.
Those outside the UK:
Have you ever had an earthquake in your area? Did it cause much damage?
Should a single individual start out with a condo, apartment, townhome, or a house?
(keep in mind the individual is looking in California)
2) What was the last thing to totally disappoint you/flat out let you down?
3) Do you have a favorite word combination? Like glazed doughnut or jello pudding pop...

One hasn't been doing her job, so I decided to fire her. Problem: she hasn't been responding to emails or phone calls or facebook messages. I finally emailed my boss to let him know what I was doing (figured I should do that). He said he'd take care of firing her for me! Hooray!
How much will it suck for her to hear that she's fired on her birthday? Before she became queen of not responding she was excited about being on the yearbook staff, and its even on her facebook profile.
Have you gotten fired on an important day like that or Christmas or something? How did you feel?
Which of your parents do you like most?
Who's the best looking.. you or a sibling?
Do you have any nephews/nieces? What are they called?
Is there anything you're selfish about, but you think it's kind of justified?
for instance, i'm really selfish when it comes to sleeping. If i'm still asleep I expect my housemates to STFU even if it's in the middle of the afternoon or a weekend, but I get ill if I don't sleep.. and then i germ all over them and they get ill too.. so it's in everyone's interest to accomodate me really.

What's your favourite birthday present you've ever gotten?
For my 18th birthday, my parents and friends threw me a surprise party (but they boffed it up and it wasn't really a surprise). And this year's will be pretty good, if my parents follow through with it. They're going to pay to get my cat neutered, so they say. My girlfriend also gave me really awesome owl figurines for my birthday last year.
Worst birthday present?
I don't really remember a specific bad present, but I'm always getting makeup for gifts and it blows.
What color do you think your name is?
Do you think Jamie is a light blue name? Does it change color when my middle name (Lee) is added?
Or am I not making any sense?
I lost my cell phone around Christmas and I need another one. Badly. Do any of you know where I could get a cheap* Motorola Rzr or Krzr that are compatible with Alltel and that also do not require a service plan/contract? I've been trying eBay but they're all too expensive. I'm poor, yall.
*By cheap I mean, under $50.00.
Do the other grandchildren call them that?
I call my maternal grandparents Wee Wee and Paw. Wee Wee is a bastardization of the name Granny, which is what my mother wanted me to call my grandmother but my grandmother thought I was saying Wee Wee and thought it was cute and wanted me to call her that. It used to embarrass me so bad but I'm over it now. Paw I think is from my oldest cousin who calls him Paw Paw. She calls our grandmother MeMaw. Then our youngest cousins call them Grandma and Grandpa. So I think it's odd that the grandchildren from my grandparents 3 children all call them something different.
Paternal grandparents are Grandma Pam and Grandpa Ross, which is kind of weird since they are the only ones I call Grandma and Grandpa.
I've only been in three relationships and the one that lasted longest (2 and a half years) was so rocky throughout that it hurt (the other two were very short lived).
Time for non-serious
ETA: How many times do you think TQC sees the word "why" in one day?
If they don't friend you back, do you unfriend them after a certain time has passed?

Would you prefer he call you first and then his best friend, because he just can't wait any longer to talk to you? Or would you prefer he call his best friend first and get the work talk out of the way, and then call and fall asleep talking to you?
*Seriously hypothetical, I don't even have a boyfriend.
How many hours a day should I limit myself too?
& should I have specifics, like limits on email/lj/msn?
Should I ban myself from TQC entirely? I not, how long should I spend per day/week?
How can I earn more internet time?
Is this an entirely bad first move toward this?
Was it a hard decision?
Did you feel guilty after it happened?
Do you think it was helpful or educational or completely useless?
Did your teacher ever give out misinformation they labeled as truth?
Who do you still have to thank?
2)for today: hard work and discipline or video games and naps?
Firstly, he's a "junior", so his dad's middle name is Hussein, too. Secondly, he was born in 1961, and Saddam Hussein didn't "take office" until 1979.
So, TQC, what's the big deal?
What's your middle name? And do people make fun of it?
Mine's Beth. I have a feeling I was named after a Kiss ballad. Woe.
Anyone else being killed with work for the pre-spring break cram? Doesn't it suck? What do you have to do before you can take off for break?
If so, would it be okay for me to just make it the
opposite sex from the other twin so I could have one of each?
Would what you do if you had intersexed twins? Would you make them both the same sex or separate ones?
Four in mine that I know of. My uncles George and Keith, and my cousins Annie-Ruth and Mary.
George was accidentally shot in the head when he was 13. He lived on for a few days before dying.
Keith died in a fire caused by an electric blanket at 24. At least that's what I was always told. When I was older my mother told me that Keith's ex-wife, told people she shot him and then set his trailer on fire. Which makes sense because his wife was crazy, and it was the middle of the summer so why would he have an electric blanket.
Annie-Ruth and a friend had picked up two boys who had been broken down on the side of the road. She was sitting on a draw bridge that was up with a full container of gas in the trunk. A drunk crashed into the back of her car and the gas caught on fire. Everyone made it out, but she was burned very badly and died a few days later.
Mary was raped and murdered.
Did you feel the 5. 2 earthquake today?
I know an alcoholic who is supposedly trying to get her act together. She claims that going to 1-2 counselling sessions a week will be enough for her to kick her habit. As far as I know, she's not attending any AA meetings.
Is that REALLY enough?!
I was always under the impression that in order to kick the habit, one would have to go to a rehab facility. Or at least go to a therapist more than one or two times a week.
This has been an issue for her for YEARS and she's been to the hospital multiple times for it. Of course, I'm really worried about her, but I'm washing my hands of it for now. Keeping my mouth shut and opinions to myself and only giving them when outright asked.
(If it matters, she's in her late 30s.)
I have TIGI Catwalk Root Booster, which I think works nicely, but I want something better. Shampoo, conditioner, mousse, gel, anything. Thanks!

2. Have you ever been (or know anyone who has been) heavily pursued by someone you weren't that interested in, but finally gave in because they were so persistent? How did that work out for you?
3. How can I describe what is wrong with this sentence: "There are sleepless nights, heavy workloads, final exams, and expectations to fullfill". I think it's the "to fullfill" at the end and it's inconcistent with the rest of the list, right? I'm editing someone's paper.
I've lost two black bras and my memory card for my digital camera.

Let's say your SO has a really hot ex. The ex had dumped your SO, and broke his/her heart. That was a couple years ago. A good friend of your SO is getting married, and your SO plans on attending a big pre-wedding, celebratory Vegas party, where all friends of the couple are invited. You can't make it due to work or something. You find out that the ex will also attend, and you discover, is newly single. How would you deal? Be honest
Similar scenario. Your SO's friend is getting married, and he/she is invited to the bachelor/ette party. Only members of the same sex can attend, and you can't attend (if you're gay, this question doesn't apply). The party will be a large rental house, with a lot of strippers (male strippers for the women) and a lot of booze. How do you deal?
Your SO's new boss (or secretary, if he/she is the boss) is of the same sex as you, and really, really attractive. Really fit, good looking, stylish, sexy clothes, and from what you know, single. It's a busy time at work these 2 weeks, and your SO has to work a lot of overtime, alone with the boss. Your SO comes home around 11ish nightly, is tired, and doesn't show any interest in anything romantic with you. Are you concerned?

To clarify - The friend I mentioned is my boyfriend's older sister. His family asks me for advice on how to deal with this because, due to one of my aunts, I have the resources on hand to help out with her addiction. My aunt is a nun and knows many people in our area who specialize in treating addiction. My boyfriend, of course, comes to me for support when shit is hitting the fan. I am desperately trying to be supportive for EVERYONE involved. But I guess I got upset because she always promises that she's going to therapy and then they find out later on the road that she either quit or never went in the first place.
So yeah, there you go.
1. When was the last time you felt like a dumbass?
2. When was the last time you totally overreacted - either online or IRL?
3. When the shit hits the fan, who do you turn to for support?
Thanks and sorry for being Ms. Uber-Bitch earlier. I know yous guys were only trying to help.
I've found that, recently, movie scores really help me to concentrate. Right now I have a playlist made of the music from Atonement, Pride & Prejudice, and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.
Will you please tell me some more excellent movie scores I should use to focus as I study?
Will you draw something in paint for a TQC member and post it here?

Spending the cash won't cause any stress with regard to my personal finances. But, of course, there's always something else I could do with the money.
For those who say "buy" -- any brand or designer suggestions?

What is is the dumbest thing you've done this week?
anyway, i'm 27 and don't want to look stupid, or more stupid than i do already. have any of you or someone you know used invisalign or anything similar to straighten your teeth? how did it work out? like i said, i don't have severe problems, just a small mouth and some crowding/overlapping here and there.
I'm just curious I'm not trying to make fun or talk about eating disorders or anything it's just the only example I could think of that showed what I was wanting to know.
2. When do you think winter will be over? Is the end really in sight?
3. What should I have for dinner? I'm starving!
Long story short - I had my ex-boyfriend arrested for a number of abuse related incidents, he plead non-guilty to everything (because he is a prick) and I (being the victim in the case) got subpoenaed to testify against him. However, I am in Arizona, this all happened in Colorado. The trial is on April 01 (I know how ironic) and that is a Tuesday. I have classes, a test and work that day that I really can't afford to miss for two days (because I would fly out the Friday before hand so I could spend some time with my mom and then I would leave Tuesday night after the trial). I called the DA and the Witness Protection people and they told me that I need not worry about coming out there to testify because it would be a hassle for me. But thinking about it, how strong would the case really be if the victim didn't show to testify right?
So my question, do I stay in Arizona, go to class take my test and not miss any work or do I go to Colorado to testify against my abusive ex-boyfriend in hopes that it will simply make the judge happy?
Non-serious answers are always welcome.
I love making bratwurst stirfry with pork ramen. <3

Also, why the hell do I never get any calls from any of these places when they say "We'll call and let you know yes or no?"
And completely unrelated: How hilarious is it that my brother and I embarrass anyone we're with when he says "It needs glamour" and I follow with"And glitz!" him: "It needs sequins!" me:"And tits!"
He's sitting in the bathroom right now yelling out "It needs glamour" and every few minutes he breaks out with a bad rendition of "Haben Sie Gehort Das Deutsche Band?"
Do people remark on the way you think/ and see things?
People always say they think my thoughts are abstract and i always see things differently *shrugs*.

How to I get the blue ring around restart in this [http://img352.imageshack.us/img352/7074/94836470kj6.png] picture to go away? It's been that way for about a week, and appeared after I pushed tab to move from restart to shut down. It's annoying as crap and I've had no luck with making it go away. And I just noticed that this happens with all dialog boxes with more than one option...
Secondly, I turned on stickykeys a few days ago with the shift key, and I assumed it would shut off when I shut down the computer, as it does with Windows. Well, those stupid symbols still show up every time I push shift/command, and they are also annoying.
Can you help?
Well now you know the rest of the story.
