The Skipper

(no subject)

You know how when you're slightly inebriated, and you decide you want toast, and so you but the bread in the toaster and push the little thingy down, but it pops right back up, and you assume that you did something wrong, because you've been drinking, so push the thingy down again, and it keeps popping back up, and you do this like six times before you realize that you unplugged the toaster earlier when you were cleaning the kitchen and that's why it's not working?

Doesn't that suck?

What's the last thing you ate?

You want to go see a band in Westbury, New York and you live in Rhode Island. You have two options.

1. Drive the four hours through CT, NY and through the outskirts of Manhattan to Long Island, by yourself
2. Drive to Bridgeport CT *aprox 2 1/2 hours from where you live* and take the ferry directly to Long Island *aprox an hour* then drive another hour to the gig. The Ferry costs aproximately 40 dollars. A tank of gas for you costs 30-35 depending on where you get it.

Which would you do?

*also you do not want to just skip it entirely because it is your birthday*

Gay Heroes

Can anyone think of fictional heroes who are gay? I know of various comic or tragic figures, but few heroic ones. The ones I can think of are:

Achilles, and various lesser-known ancient Greeks.
Xena, Warrior Princess.
Willow, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
A few characters from a Mercedes Lackey book that I don't want to admit to having read.
Dumbledore, although it was never really revealed in the books, so I don't know if it counts.

In your family, or circle of friends, do you decorate the couple's car after they get married?

What about filling their car with things?

In my family, they always fill the car with something. My uncle was telling stories last night about it - they put newspaper in our car (my husband was pissed!), but when he heard some of the other things, he realized it wasn't so bad. They've done - balloons, confetti (in the vents), put cars up on blocks, moved cars, etc.

My husband thinks it is a terrible violation of his manhood to mess with his car. I think it's funny as hell. What do you think?


1. Do you love me now that I can dance?

2. Why do you hate Sundays?

3. Do you go to church?

4. Do you put lotion on everyday? If so, what brand?

5. Are you on a diet?

6. What is your favorite thing to cook?

K so my flatmate suddenly decided she hates me and hasn't talked to me in a month except for about 2 weeks ago when I accidentally turned our alarm on when she was home cos I thought she was out. She texted me along the lines of "you're so fucking pathetic, I cant believe you turned the alarm on when you KNEW I was home. Well done."

Last night I tried to make amends with her but she just ignored me and complained about me to all our mutual friends.

This morning she turned on the alarm like two seconds after she'd seen me when she went out.

Should I just forward the text she sent me back to her?

Should I play "Smash Mouth - Why Can't We Be Friends" as loud as I can when we get home?

Can you tell me about crap flatmates to cheer me up?

I'm a bit down in the dumps cos I've been friends with this girl for almost 10 years.

EDIT.  The whole flat (there are four of us) got in a fight over cleaning about a month ago. It was pretty stupid and everyones apologised about it except for her.. She won't talk to me or one of the other flatmates, the third one is her BF so she's obviously talking to him.

EDIT AGAIN. Every time I try to talk to her she either walks out of the room or talks over me to someone else so having a civilised conversation is out of the picture.

TQC, I just got so bored I joined a web-based chat full of complete morons and pretended I was a shy, curious teenage (but legal) girl looking to explore the gay lifestyle and wanted to find a guy to watch to make sure I was "doing it right".

You have the power to save the lives of 20 terminally ill people, but in order to do so, you have to kill someone. There is a guy who was on death row, tied to a chair, wearing a ball gag. You're given a knife. He's afraid and crying, but you know he isn't a good person. Ending his life will save 20 others. Would you do it?

Yes. 20 lives > 1 life
No. I couldn't do it. It's just immoral

You have the power to save 100 terminally ill children, whose lives are in jeopardy, due to their illness. All you have to do to save them is kill 5 men on death row. They, too, are gagged and tied to chairs, panicked and afraid. This time, you're given an alluminum baseball bat. Would you take their lives?

Yes. 100 kiddie lives > 5 criminal lives
No. I couldn't do it
I would want to, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it

You have the power to prevent an earthquake that will hit Chile and kill 30,000 lives. Before you is a room with glass walls, and inside, are 300 drug dealers. You sit in front of the window, and next to your hand are 2 buttons. If you click the first button, the room before you will fill entirely with water, drowning everyone inside. Next to it the button that will stop the water. You have to watch through the window as they all beg and plead for their lives, pounding on the glass. Would you take their lives to stop the quake?

Yes. 30,000 > 300
No. It's immoral to play God
I would want to, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it

What do you usually order when you go out for drinks at a bar? What is your favourite drink?

How much regional difference is there for names of cocktails or other mixed drinks (sorry if I'm getting the terminology wrong...)? Like say between America and the UK. Or between Canada and America, or different American states.

Do you usually specify how you want it made or just give the bartender the name and assume they'll know what it is/how to make it?

Poll #1151506 Cause I'm fourcorners, there has to be another poll about sex

You're at a bar. Your celebrity crush, aka, the celebrity you find the hottest, is there. He or she is drunk and looks really, really good and being hit on a lot by the other patrons. They sit down next to you, and notice your wide-eyed, jaw-dropped awe, and then grabs your ass, and says, 'You're pretty cute, and all this liquor's making me horny. Wanna come with me to the bathroom?'

"Oh, do I?!" You follow them into the bathroom stall for some X-rated illicit behavior
You're flattered, but no, you can't do it
"I won't go with you into the bathroom, but let's just make out and see what happens"
You're horribly offended and slap the celebrity
You say no, and then turn around and call the National Enquirer and get paid for this slutty story

You're walking down the street, window shopping, when you pass by an alley. Out of the alley, a purple-clad pimp runs out and approaches you. "Sweetness", he says, "I have a ho problem. I have a big client lined up and I promised him 10 girls, but one of my bitches got food poisoning and can't come. I need my 10th lady. Now, this gig they're all going to is for a bunch of Latino businessmen, and all of my girls will have to fuck a number of dudes. It pays well, though. If you agree to be my 10th ho, then your cut is $20,000. They'll all use condoms, and all the girls will only have to be there for 5 hours, but in that time, you'll have to sleep with whoever asks and possibly have threesomes. Are you up to it, sweetness?"

I'd do it. 20k just for 5 hours of completely slutty behavior
No. Effin'. Way

Some cause you strongly believe in (analyze your principles to determine what that is) has sparked a protest group on the governor's office in your state. The governor is passing laws that would seriously restrict and compromise this belief you hold so dearly. To make this protest more attention-worthy, the instigator of this protest wants all participants to protest STARK NAKED. You show up with only shoes and your sign, and march en masse to the governor's place. The media will be there to record the demonstration, but this will be for something you strongly believe in. Would you join the protest?

Yes. It's only nudity. The cause is more important than boobies and peen
No. I couldn't imagine being naked in public

It's one of them hot hot days of summer, and in this scenario, you're in school. You have to give an oral presentation in front of the class, and this presentation counts as 25% of your total grade. It could damage or boost your grade at this point in the semester. Because it's a hot day, you wore a t-shirt, but you didn't realize it was kind of tight when you put it on that morning. The teacher, knowing it was hot, turned on the A/C. The classroom is kind of chilly now, and your body has noticed. Your nipples are rock hard and protruding through your white shirt like you're smuggling acorns in your bra (which, in this scenario, is doing nothing to restrain the tittie erections). You don't have a sweater and your presentation is in 5 minutes. Dozens of eyes will be upon you. What do you do?

Suck it up. Give my presentation. Live with whatever comments or innuendo may follow
I'd give the whole presentation with my arms crossed, hands under armpits. I may look like a weird dork, but my nipples will be hidden
I sit this one out. Make up some BS excuse to the teacher how I'm not feeling well
Look around the room and spot someone who does have a sweater or vest or something, and ask if I can borrow it
Walk up front, introduce yourself and your nipples (they're your presentation aids), and try and make it work for you. Use the nipples as pointers when you're pointing at things on the board. Have fun with it

You and your SO are out of town for the weekend, going to some swanky hotel for some private time. The only room left was this first floor job known as 'the diva'. This room has no curtains, and each wall has enormous windows, all of which are 1-way mirrors. You can see out, but people can't see in. Your bed is slanted so that most sexual romps will be in view of the windows, which, if they're doing their job,will not permit any visibility to the public. The room is also soundproof. Outside the building is a well-travelled walkway, where people are walking past your room en route to the restaurants, stores and parking lot.. You show up and your SO wants to have sex. How does being in this room make you feel?

Horny. All the faux voyeurism is making me hot
Very nervous. I know they can't see inside, but still, I'm very uncomfortable being in here, and certainly couldn't imagine having sex
Strange. I'd give anything a try. The passing crowds might be a little daunting at first, but I'm sure I'll get used to it
Not only do we have sex, but we haul the bed against the window, so that I can lead against it while banging

I lost my à

I recently got a new laptop, and all has been going fine but suddenly I lost the ability to type à (I had to copy and paste that) in anything other than AIM or MSN. If I try to type it in an LJ entry/deviantArt comment/etc. it goes back to the last page.

To do this I always typed the little [FN] key + alt and mkku and I've never had a problem until now, so I don't know if I've changed something or what. It's really annoying though since it's actually a character I use fairly often.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Feel bad?

So... i had a boy-friend, but it was a very passive relationship. However, I broke it off becaues I was having more serious feelings for another guy, a guy I had known longer, (and in reality, had feelings for longer) but I didn't want to cheat on my bf so I dumped him. (gently I may add.)
Right now I am single, but the other guy and I are starting to get closer and talking a lot more. (also, my ex doesn't even know the othe guy exsist, even though we are all at the same uni and grade)

Some of my close friends look at me odd when I explain it to him, should I really feel bad?

I installed my Sims 2 game and extras, and I can't get it to play. I downloaded an update for my video card. Still no good.

It will play the intro and let me select a neighborhood. When it starts to load the neighborhood, it will freeze. I've gotten past that once to start making my Sims, but it would freeze after I tried to save it. have a clue what's wrong? Do I need to download the patches from


And for those of you who don't care about that....

I'm currently working 2 jobs while finishing school. My internship at the law firm is about to end, so they offered me full time (part time until graduation). I work there every afternoon from the time I get out of class until 4-5pm. Some nights I come work at the video store until close.

Since they offered me a job at the firm, and I accepted, I really don't need the video store job anymore. The extra cash is nice, but I don't know if it is worth the hassle. On days like tomorrow, I'm going to work from 8 am - 10 pm with the exception of the 15-20 minutes it will take for me to get from the firm to the store.
So after spring break, should I quit my video store job?

Alright, I've been wanting these piercings for years:
Collapse )
and my boyfriend and I talk about it ALL the time, but he hates piercings to no end, and he doesn't understand why I would want them.

Now, I don't want to give him license over what I do, but I also don't really want to do something he's obviously expressed his opinion against. This is not a new or unstable relationship. He's kind of alright with the nose, but not the lip at all. If I got one, he'd want it to be a side on, and I don't.

So, what should I do? I don't want to upset him, but he's not the decision maker with these kinds of things. Should I even get this done? Here's me:

 When you sit down at a restaurant or a library (or any public place with lots of people traffic), and the chair is really warm, do you feel all icky? 

This just happened to me (I'm in the school library) and it bugged me for about 10 seconds.

TQC, this has been a mystery that has nagged at me for over two years now!

There is this one song to a decent AMV that I have NO clue who the artist is. I tried to google some of the lyrics, with no luck finding anything out. It's a dance song, and I want to know who this is! Do you know?

If you do not know, what do you think of the song?

Who saw Jumper?

Was there a actual plot in there that I somehow completely missed?

Did the writers write out this big grand idea for a story and once they wrote out just the basic premise, were just like "dude fuck this, let's get a beer"?

What is the last movie you saw in theatres? Did it suck?


What do you know about Reed college? I saw on America's Best Liberal Arts colleges website that Reed "refused to fill out U.S. News survey. Data from school's website were used."

I actually think that's really cool for some reason..

My cat's eye is watering badly and he is swollen and red right above his eye. What could possibly be wrong with him?

We just took him to the vet and gave him meds for conjunctivitis so I am not sure if he still has that or this is something entirely new.
