For me it is Vancouver/ Vancouver island.
What is the best dessert involving oranges?
I can out orange anyone. I practically live on it.
I just bought it yesterday and it's interesting enough since I'm not that far into it.

1. what are some good bulk lunches that i can make on sundays for work all week?
i usually make spaghetti with "meat" sauce (i use soy mince cause it's cheaper), chili with pasta, or a bowtie/chicken/feta/tomato/balsamic vinegar pasta salad. preferably keep it cheap and involving chicken or ground beef-type things
2. what are some tasty things that can be baked relatively easily for 25 people?
i've done coffee cake and chocolate chip cookies so far. i'm in the uk, so don't have access to awesome american ingredients.

I brought 2 pairs of pants and 2 shirts with me. I wore them all day, all the time, with no washer and dryer and only sporadic access to a shower.
Tell me TQC, what's the dirtiest you've ever been?

Who is the coolest minor character from Disney?
Which is better?
300 or V for Vendetta?
Alice in Wonderland or Cinderella?
Saving Private Ryan or Heartbreak Ridge?
1) I tried already and failed.
2) Well..I don't know..that's why I'm asking!
3) Meeko. Or Cogsworth. (Meeko doesn't talk..but Cogsworth does!!)
4) V for Vendetta
Alice in Wonderland
I especially like RPGs and RTS, in depth FPSs. Unfortunately Neverwinter Nights 2 and Dungeon Siege 2 sound buggy and bad from the reviews I have read.
2. Do you ever post things that have to do with other LJ friends and exclude them from reading it?
3. What kind of postings do you usually make? (i.e. Trying to sort out your feelings, a humorous view on world events, what's going on in your life, etc.)
4. Is your journal friends only? Why/why not?
5. Are your posts usually private, public, all friends, or specific groups of friends?
6. Why do you use LJ and not something like a paper diary?
7. Do you do a lot of private posts, or can people read all/most of them?
8. Do you feel that being on LJ makes you more prone to opening up with your life's secrets, troubles, and hardships than you would usually do?
9. If you could get unlimited access to one person's LJ, whose would it be and why?
Sorry if these are random, but I'm genuinely curious.
does anyone know if it's real/where it's originally from?
I just made a pretty amazing avocado, cream cheese, and mushroom omelette. I also like putting avocado on sandwiches.

What about you? - Is this a normal time for you to be online, and what time is it right now where you are?
If it's not normal or usual, what brings you to be on TQC atm?
Also, what's the last unexpected thing to happen to or for you?
Who makes you laugh out loud, honestly, the most?

Who gives you the biggest headaches?
Who is someone you wish you had never met?

Now my mouth feels numb.
What is the fattest meal you eaten this week?
I love those little creamer cups you see at fast food restaurants or gas stations. I'll drink like ten of them if I have the opportunity to snatch as many.
I used to drink pickle juice after the pickles were gone.
I would eat pepperocini peppers, take the stems and dip them in the juice, and then chew on the stems.
When my mom would make hamburgers, she would always end up with too much lettuce and tomatoes after dinner, so I would take that, ranch dressing, and toast and make a lettuce sandwich. That's not very weird, but I've never heard of anyone doing it before.
2. Do you ever just want to do cartwheels for no reason? Do you ever do them?
3. When did you last play leap frog?
4. Did you have a trampoline as a kid?
5. Should I get a moon-bounce for my 25th birthday party?

4. Would you bring your children there? Why or why not?
Ladies: when fighting on some ancient battlefield, do you prefer a dagger or a BROADSWORD!?

What are some good recommendations for movies that we would both like that arent like those I just mentioned?
I enjoy movies based on true stories and/or dramas, and some examples of movies I like are Blow, The Departed, Boondock Saints, Armageddon, American History X, American Beauty, etc.
Any other good ones? (BTW, assume I am extremely sheltered when it comes to most movies that 'everyone has already seen' because chances are, I havent seen it)
Do you know anyone born on February 29th?
Yep, someone I graduated high school with.
Do you go to class?
I ask because The Boyfriend has to subtly remind me every year when exactly his birthday is coming up, and I am ever so grateful because otherwise I'd have no idea. I keep thinking it's three days later than it is. I've known the guy ten years and it still gives me trouble. VALIDATE ME, TQC. I need to know I'm not alone!
If not (or if so and you just want to answer more questions), what simple thing do you have trouble remembering about people?
A guy and a girl meet at a club/bar/party, hit it off and decide to have a special cuddle/ make sweet, sweet Sarah Mclachlan love/ have a "quiche" etc.
Several weeks later, the woman discovers she's pregnant and contacts the guy. He does not want a child and wants her to have an abortion or adoption, however she feels that it's the right time in her life to have a child/wants a baby/needs a kidney donor in the future.
Should the man be forced to pay child support if he doesn't want the baby but she decides that she wants to keep the child?
This is as a result of a one night stand.
Have your dreams ever (sorta) come true?

Is everything going to be okay?
I just learned how to be a magical internets pixie! That is, I learned how to process web orders at work :D
2) Are you planning on doing anything/being interesting tonight?
3) Do you have any interests/hobbies that people make fun of all the time? What do you say to these people?
I like anime. I get the typical "lol, tentacle porn" from people all the time. I just go along with it, like "oh yeah, but I'm picky about quality. 5 tentacles or less? Man, thats just not even trying."
Everyone else: What's your tv addiction?

2. As a child, did you want to save your virginity until marriage?
3. What would you do if your SO asked his parents if they would help finance him in seeing a psychiatrist and their solution was to take him to church? Hypothetically speaking, neither of you are religious.
4. Ladies, if you have had a baby did you get an epidural? How much did that help?
5. Do you volunteer or donate to charities?
(Mine are: brand-new socks in bright solid colors with a different color on each foot, enormous metal medallions at least six inches in diameter, nipple glitter, neon pink lipstick.)
2. Why/why not?
3. Is there anyone in TQC you would like to add to see if their FO journal is worth reading?
4. Would you be willing to friend other TQCers on a trial basis to check out each others FO journals?
5. Would you be hurt if someone decided to unfriend you shortly thereafter?

Seriously, if you don't know Norwegian, then shut up! I don't care if you want to make fun of me!

ASK AWAY. HURRY UP WHILE I GOT TIME. GET TO IT.
The catch is that I can only answer you using a picture.

what amazing things are there to eat there?
Would you ever live in one?
*Assume for this purpose I'm talking about a log-cabin style house, complete with heating, plumbing, and multiple rooms and so on and not a basic camping one.
What if I told you it was really only $7.50/hour?
If you friend starts writing suicidal entries but locks them so that only his ex-girlfriend (who is also your friend) can see them, is she obligated to keep quiet about it? And if she does tell me (as she did) am I allowed to talk to him about it?
(Regardless of etiquette I'm probably going to say something, at least. I'm just curious what you guys think about it. His ex-girlfriend got in touch with the guy's brother too and let him know what he was saying).
Search your name in this.
Are you as disturbed by this as I am?!?
(fwiw, I'm pretty damned disturbed)
edit: I just looked up my dad's name and they have a listing for him that uses a nickname that is NOT his real name and would NEVER be used for any proper papers or accounts. HOW DO THEY KNOW THIS NICKNAME???? I know it is referring to him because the info they have for that name is correct in it's details. :( :( :( It's not even a shortened form of his first name - it's something silly.
What is your least favorite thing about Tuesdays?
Do any of you do this?
Why do people do this?

Trip to the mountains or a trip to the beach?
Which pet do you like better? Fish or hamsters?
Milkshake or frappachino?
Would you rather bungee jump or parachute?

My department head is highly recommending that I become fluent in Spanish, since there are so many Spanish speaking people in the U.S. now. So I'm trying to find the best program possible.
For the Uk-ers here - who saw GMTV today where that girl proposed to her boyfriend live on air? Is it just me or does that look like it's not going to last long? (Can't find it on Youtube, but it is here: http://www.heatworld.com/Article/4614/GMTV+/Watch+the+cringiest+TV+moment+of+the+week )
ETA: I fail - this has already been done. I'd still like to know people's opinions on the video, though.
My Changeling LARP is having its seasonal 'formal' next weekend. I am considering a dress or skirt rather than my character's usual nice jeans + button-down shirt.
Should I wear a dress?
Should I wear a skirt?
If either of these, what sort? My character likes shades of red, purple, pink, and plum. Which sucks because I don't.

Besides that, what's the weather like where you are?
Seeing as you're dressed like that, what exactly are your plans tonight? Who will you be with? Do I need to call their parents? Will anyone be drinking?
Where did I go wrong with you?!
2. Have you ever shaved someone other than yourself?
Another way of saying it would be what needs to be in place before you could fall in love with someone (e.g. physical attraction, admiration, respect, etc.)?
what should i do now?
i'm thinking about going running before school in the mornings and adding on a mile each week, does that sound good?
Are there any said previous hobbies you lost interest in that you wish you still enjoyed?
I've been jobless for awhile. I have a mini-vacation planned for the end of March. After that I'm entirely free. I have the money for the vacay, would it be stupid to postpone finding a job until afterwards just so I can guarantee there will be no conflicts?
Their parents are only going to see a movie so this is only for about 2/3 hours.
I am terrified! Please help!
What are some simple things you'd miss about the internet if it disappeared? I'd miss saying "iawtc" and answering questions on TQC and being able to look stuff up with just a few keystrokes. Oh, and stupid drama. My life would be so boring without the internet. :(
But he did not pull me over.
Why was that?

Where are you from?
Do you think the pronunciation depends on where you're from or is it just ignorance?
My friend and I are debating identical twins dressing identically. At what age does it stop being cute?
Personally, I think the cuteness ends when they get out of high school. My aunts are identical twins, and they're 40-some years old, and when they dress identical, it just looks ridiculous. I guess Twin Day is a perfectly fine excuse to dress alike, or if you're actively trying to perpetuate the stereotype that twins are incapable of independent thought.
Another debate - My brother thinks Malibu's Most Wanted is funnier than The New Guy. I'm partial to The New Guy. Which do you like better?
Whether you have or haven't, here's a chance to do one of two things (or both, if you really wanna):
Will you comment here and ask people to be up front in telling you if they don't care for you for some reason?
Or alternatively, will you comment here and name at least one person you suspect of not liking you, and ask them for any reason that may be so?
PS: I'm feeling optimistic today, so I hope we can have fun and maybe learn a new thing or two with this. 8)
Edit: You guys who say you don't care if people tell you are taking some of the potential fun outta this, I hope you know. You're all(?) smart enough that if you comment, you should be prepared for any lurking "haters" to go ahead and spout off why they don't like you.
you have a permanent marker.
what will you write?
Also, I need to open a new bank account. With which bank do you think I should do so/Why?
What's something that makes you cry every time you watch it?
Would you be upset, or is this expected?

4. Guys: How big is your penis?
2. What about your purse and/or wallet?
3. Browser history?

2. We're getting close to leaving for Italy. We had our meeting last night, and the guy who's running it told u all that we shouldn't be checking in bags. We're going for 8 days, and he told us to wear our jeans, and back 3-4 pairs of socks, undies, and tshirts in our carry-on. We can wash what we need to in our hotel sinks. Is he just insane or does he really expect us to do that?
If so, how often:

Alternately, what else can I say to her to cheer her up?
If you were going to be famous for something.. based on your talent traits .. what would i be for?
I'd have to go with singer..
I'm a decent actress and musician but don't enjoy either as much as my singing. I write but I have no motivation to go back and edit/rework it for viewing.. I lose interest quickly and most of it is self indulgent crap anyway.
I have zero artistic talent, I can barely colour inside the lines..
I did a bit of modeling as a young teenager but I'm not quite tall enough and probably not thin enough anymore- plus.. there's the fact I don't quite look like Heidi Klum..
I am known for my slow humour.. funny has never been and never will be my thing.
Got anything just a little bit special about you?
I'm pitch perfect. It means I can automatically sing, yes.. but it also means I get actual pain whenever other people sing out of tune even slightly. I don't mention it because I'd come across like a pretentious asshole
Do you know anyone that you think will ever make it?
My friend is assistant producer to a well known band. He's here right now showing off his first platinum disk. He makes his own music and he's.. pretty wow.

The portfolio was done overseas and one story was from a prompt. I'm having a hard time working in context into the story and keeping it short, so is there a way I can include a cover page which explains the prompt? I googled cover page, but it's all for critical essay documents.
The chair of the department isn't too happy with me, and if he so much as looks at me wrong when turning this in, I'm running the opposite direction and tearing it up. So in other words, I can't just sit down and explain things about the writing to him. Yes someday I'll grow some balls.

Well TQC, this morning I took a massive dump. It didn't flush all the way so I waited for the toilet to refill before flushing it again. Except that's when our cleaning lady came in and decided to clean the bathroom before I could stop her. I am strangely embarrassed that she saw my poo. I felt like I should have apologized or something, but I didn't say anything.
SHOULD I BE EMBARRASSED?
What's the last body function that embarrassed you.

No 1st or no 6th period- But it's not like I have anywhere to be.

Deviance: Studies the structure and process of deviance in social groups. Students discuss historical as well as contemporary examples.
Cultural Anthro: Cultural anthropologists are researchers who learn first-hand about other cultures by living with the people under study. Topics may include social organization, economics, power and politics, language, technology, religion and ritual, and gender. Wide geographic coverage provides a basis for global comparisons of cultural similarities and differences between human groups.
If it matters, I'm for sure taking Social Psychology.

5. Do you crave pizza every day?
6. Thunder or Lightening?
You come home upset one day, and go into your bedroom. Someone you live with comes to your room and demands you talk to them about it; you say no. They press the issue, you get pissed off and carry on telling them you dont want ot talk to them. Eventually you snap and shout at them "NO I DONT WANT TO TALK TO YOU, JUST LEAVE ME ALONE PLEASE?". They continue telling you to talk to them, over and over and you start to freak out a bit. You try to get past to leave the room, and the person pushes you back and up against the wall and starts repeating "calm down, calm down" over and over. You ask them to let go calmly, and they say no and carry on repeating 'calm down'. You're like, wtf, why are you doing this? and they tell you that they're not doing anything.
a) go "ok, ill talk to you" and proceed to talk to them
b) flip out and after a while of this end up on the floor begging hysterically for them to let you go (as they keep refusing)
c) something else
EDIT: if you would do something violent, does your answer change if this is someone big enough to easily overpower you?
even if you'd choose a or c, do you think b) is an unacceptable response
Also, is there any way I can translate it? I'm assuming it's Japanese.
This guy told me last night in all seriousness that he likes me because I have a cute tongue. And he didn't mean anything sexual by it.
