Do you tell people when it's your birthday?
I know so many people who are like "oh hi how are you IT'S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY" and it drives me insane. I mean, if I cared, I'd have asked.

I mean, facebook and LJ tell you when it's coming anyway, right.

HOLY CRAP!  You've suddenly been transported back in time for no apparent reason!  And standing in front of you is Adolf Hitler!  You also realize that in your right hand is a lightsaber, and in your left hand is a flame-thrower!

Do you kill him?

If so, which weapon do you use?


But seriously, guys, what did Hitler ever do to YOU?

Selling Plasma

I'm sure this has probably been asked before.

Have you ever donated (sold) your plasma?

What is it like?

Should I donate (sell) my plasma?

I'm not hurting for money or anything, I'm just kind of curious, and if you "donate" twice a week it works out to around $250 a month compensation. That could pay for a nice trip after doing it for a year and I've never been to Europe. However, I am kind of really creeped out by the process involved.

Sports

If you could relive one sports moment in history through the eyes of a person directly involved? 
Who would that be and what would the sports moment be? 



I would want to be Doug Mientkiewicz of the Boston Red sox when they won the 2004 World Series after he was lobbed the ball from Kevin Foulke to end the game.  Simple I know but it meant the world to Sox fans.

I was looking over some of the adult stories I've written and realized I've actually improved. The first story I ever wrote was riddled with cliches. It was kind of embarrassing to post it two years later.

Writers, have you looked at your past writing and laughed at how terrible it was?

What was terrible about it?

ETA: This is very embarrassing, but here is an excerpt. It's fanfiction for the game Valkyrie Profile, and the first adult story I ever wrote.

Possums?

Is there a way to keep possums out of a yard?

And before ya'll tell me to go out and buy traps, I live in an apartment complex where everyone has their own yard behind the house if they are on the ground floor, which I am, and I know my manager would flip his shit if he found out I was putting out traps. I've talked to him about the possum problem around the complex (they sure do love our overflowing dumpsters) but he's unwilling to do anything about it.

Is there something like a scent I can put around my yard that they'll stay away from, kinda like boric acid for ants? I was considering putting poisoned food out, but figured people wouldn't be too happy if there were a bunch of dead possums suddenly laying everywhere.

Any other way that wouldn't possibly get me kicked out of the apartments if it was traced back to me?

(I mean, I generally don't have a problem with them, but they've been getting really brave. I petted one last night because I wasn't looking while taking a smoke break and thought it was a stray cat. Really kinda freaked me out. I don't go rampaging into their little forest area behind the complex, so it'd be nice if they stayed out of my yard.)

My cat got fixed last week and I noticed last night that she was licking her stitches so much the area was red. Since it's been a whole week, is this safe/okay for her to do, or should I discourage her from it? She doesn't do it often, it was only the once last night that I've noticed, they don't seem to bother her otherwise.

EDIT: The vet finally answered the phone and told me it should be OK but to keep her from doing it as much as possible anyway. OK yay I feel better now. :)

In other news, what are your plans tonight, TQC? Can I come along? :D

Excluding the Indianapolis art museum and zoo/garden since I've been to those places only recently.

ETA: Oh, oh, oh. THE GIRL DELETED MY (nice and not snarky at all) COMMENT ABOUT THE SHIPPING BEING TOO MUCH AND THAT I WOULD PASS ON THE SWEATER. THEN SHE LOWERED SHIPPING PRICES TO $8 WHICH IS STILL RIDIC.

1. I bought a huge bag of TVP when I moved out, because some vegetarian recipe book said it was a pantry-staple. On reading the book, there aren't any recipes which include TVP. So, vegetarians - what can I make with this large bag of TVP that tastes good?


2. If you have an SO and are having friendly conversation (and perhaps a little bit of flirting) with someone of your preferred gender, at what point in the conversation does your SO come up?
(I ask because I've been getting interested in this guy, he didn't mention any SO until considerably into the acquaintance, where he talked about being cold at a camping event, I said 'sounds like it would have been one of those stashing as many people as you can into a tent for warmth nights' and he said 'well, i was just lucky i had somewhere to share my sleeping bag with.' I sort of think it otherwise might not have come up.)

So, last night, someone broke into our car and stole our stereo and our CDs, and went through the whole car looking for anything valuable. (Luckily, those were the only things of any "value".) Now, this happened two years ago, the day after Thanksgiving, only they broke a window that time and we had to use our Christmas money to fix it. This time, they destroyed the lock on the passenger side door and we have to find the money to fix it.

What is the worst playground injury you have witnessed?
Do you think it was avoidable?
Do you think this is a natural part of childhood that happens in every school?

When I was in Grade Four, my friends and I were having races at lunchtime. We were using a glass window to stop ourselves. My friend Jemima won this particular race, but... ran directly through the glass window. She stepped back and brushed the glass off her, bleeding from lots of different places. Then suddenly we all started screaming because a huge chunk of her arm was hanging off and  we could see her bone. Ugh. I can still see it in my mind now! She had to be rushed to hospital in an ambulance.

Yes, it was probably avoidable, but I guess kids aren't known for thinking ahead.

Yes. Even though I'm still quite horrified by this, I don't think it's all that out of the ordinary. Kids get hurt and you're not going to stop it happening.

Which businesses do you refuse to patronize, and why?

There is a local pizza place here that not only has very crappy food and unfriendly service (notorious for hiring people who hate other people), they also completely stole their logo that they place on all their menus from a national pizza chain. Do you think it's wrong of them to do that? I asked a few times if they were a franchise and they adamantly said no, they're local. But this national pizza place has the exact same name as they have so they just decided to take the graphic from the Internet and plaster it all over their restaurant.

OR AM I JUST A BAD PERSON BECAUSE I DON'T SUPPORT A LOCAL BUSINESS?!? I wouldn't turn them in, it just makes them suck all the more to me.

I'm hitting it off really extreme with a guy I just met. The catch is that he's fresh off a longterm relationship of at the very least a year and a half. And by fresh, I mean like.. he clipped the cord like 3 weeks ago. I'm near positive that it's he who broke it off, and I only really know about it because I know one of his good friends. This guy doesn't talk or reminisce about the ex, or even mention her at all. He's affirmed many times how much he likes me. I date a lot and have been single for 3 years, so I'm jaded and weary. But I like him and he strikes me as very sincere. I don't get along this well with everybody.

So, TQC, what think you all of this:

I ordered a CD on January 17th, and sent a money order via registered mail to the company (I'm on the east coast of Canada, the company is based in Santa Monica, CA). There was a tracking number provided with it, so I was notified when the money order was delivered, on February 4th. But, I have yet to receive the CD. I've emailed the company twice to a)make sure they actually did receive the money order and b)to check on the status of the CD (is it in transit? have they shipped it at all yet? what?) I haven't gotten a response to either email.

So. Should I email them one more time (third time's the charm and all that?) If I do email, should I be all nice and friendly the way I have been in the first two, or should I threaten to report the company to the BBB if they don't answer my inquiry? I'm feeling a bit bitchy about the whole situation at the moment, so I'd be inclined to go with option B, but I'd like to get someone else's input on the whole thing.

Will you tell me a random fact/tidbit about yourself from the time that you graduated high school up until now?

I've only had 2 jobs the whole time that I've been working. I worked at my first job from the moment I started college until i graduated in '05. I started at this job October of '05.

I dated a guy that graduated 2 yrs before me after never having talked all through our high school "years" together, eventhough we share mutual friends.

Which would make you feel more betrayed; one of your best friends banging the love of your life, or a sibling who you were decently close to banging the love of your life?

ETA: In this scenario, you aren't dating the love of your life, and they have no reason to bang *you*. But both the sibling and bestie know you are in love with that person.

1. Who doesn't crate their dog these days? I haven't seen an uncrated dog in so long. Crating is just standard practice around here, I guess.

2. Is catching feral cats illegal? Behind my apartment (under my window), there are TONS of cats that constantly fight, meow, get hit by cars, etc. and I don't think they belong to anyone. I've seen some lady put food outside for them (grrr) but they're very feral in nature and none of them seem to have tags. Anyway, I'm fucking sick of these cats and I called the ASPCA once and they never did anything. My landlord said he has some raccoon traps (where you catch and release them somewhere else), and thinks we could catch them in there and bring them to the shelter since numerous people in our building have complained about the cats.

That sounds kind of weird to me, but I don't know what else to do. What should we do?

Rain

It's finally raining here. It's warm and just beautiful.

Should I go outside and twirl in the rain even though my coworkers will think I'm strange and I'd be soaking wet when I come back in?

Will you twirl in the rain with me?

NYC residents or frequent visitors:

My friend are I are going to NYC tomorrow from 10am to about 7pm, and we're looking for something relatively inexpensive and exciting to do, keeping the rain in mind. We're both under 21, and I've already seen Ellis Island (plus I'm a first generation American..) Any ideas?

Also, are there any festivals or flea markets going on tomorrow? Craigslist is only listing pages and pages of *sex toy parties* and clubs.

Hookers and Blow is not an appropriate answer, as we get plenty of that in Albany.

Thanks.

Fun Ideas???

 TQC, 

What are some fun things I can do for the next 24 hours by myself?  I'm really bored and I don't have anyone I can hang out with until later this weekend.  Please help with ideas.  Thanks in advance!  :)

procrastination

Has anyone ever tried acupuncture? I don't know much about it but I was wondering how effective it was.
What did you try it for (if you don't mind sharing) and did it work?
What was it like?

If that doesn't apply to you:
How much do you like Easy Cheese on a scale of 1-10 (1 being "it is absolutely horrible and I can't stand it" and 10 being "it is the most fabulous thing EVER and I cannot live without it")?
Care to explain?

Regarding the previous post

Since you are now a hundred pounds overweight, would you just give up and eat?

Do you think it is embarrassing to walk in public as a fat person?

Would you try to hide the fact that you are fat? How would you hide your fat?

Would you still go about having sex at this new found weight? What would that be like?

Could the weigh gain trigger a eating disorder? Let say you just decide you wont eat till you aren’t fat any longer. Do you think this is extreme or alright since you are a hundred pounds overweight?

btw I have no idea why I ask these fat questions. :(

Will you be my friend?

continuing the job-related questions

I need you to run my life, TQC.

Which looks better to you?

Job A: 3.2 miles from home, laid back office, doing a job that I could do very easily and very well.  Lower pay, better hours. Commute of about 5 minutes.  More likely to cause boredom.

Job B: A 45 minute (minimum) commute.  Starts half hour earlier, but I'd have to leave the house at the buttcrack of dawn to get there on time.  Pays a dollar or so higher.  More challenging, less likely to cause boredom. Also more likely to cause stress. Less outside people contact than the other job, which is good, because I'm not really a people person.

I hate job hunting.  HATE IT HATE IT HATE IT.  Don't like it, either.

So which would you pick?
serious

...

Humor me and pretend this is you:

There is something you really want to accomplish or achieve, and it is a worthy goal that you'd love to reach, but you procrastinate. Not just with anything, though...with other things that you enjoy. As a result, you have several worthy goals you want to reach, but you never reach any of them because they each distract you from the other.

How do you remedy the situation...and in the end reach all of the goals (and nip your procrastination/laziness in the bud)?
