Right now we have a book and a bag of Starburst (her favorite candy). We also wrote her a story and drew her some pictures. I kind of think that we should include some more food. So here is my question for you, TQC.
If you were away from home for 5 months and really missing some American snacks, what would you want? Keep in mind that you are allergic to milk, eggs, cheese, chocolate, nuts, and fish (yes, seriously). What types of things would make your eyes light up if you were to open a package from your friends and see them inside? Or... what are some candies/snacks that would be easy to mail in a small package?
Does anybody know how marshmallows do in this type of situation? They wouldn't like... explode or anything crazy like that on an airplane, would they? She really likes marshmallows... would that be something I could possibly include?
HINT #1: it's from a computer/video game.
2. If a game is released for both computers and consoles, what do you refer to it as? Computer game, video game, game or something else?
i usually use cetaphil and proactiv on and off, but i think it's time for some change to rejuvenate the face. help!
what skincare products do you use?
How would I go about backing up all of my LJ posts without having to cut-and-paste every single post? (That's six-plus years of posts, and I'm not that patient.)
Would said archival means include all of the responses to my posts?
EDIT: Thanks. I'll use LJ Book.
Edit: I was going to edit this question to ask you to name the shows, but the random comments are more interesting, I think.
What will I eat now that it's all gone? =[
It is my turn to ask TQC to make my important life decisions for me. :P
I am about to enter my senior year of college, and I am totally excited about the fact that I am registering for my *last classes ever*.
I have one problem...
I can fit in ALL of the rest of the classes I need to take... except ONE! There's no extra space for this last one, and my schedule is crammed full summer, fall *and* winter semesters.
there's no way around it - I am going to have to wait and take this last class as a summer class in the summer of 2009.
So, TQC... I have two options.
Option #1: Keep my jam-packed schedule the way it is, leaving just the one class to take next summer.
Option #2: Thin out my schedule for the next year a little bit and take two or three classes next summer, since I'm going to have to take at least one anyway.
What would you do? Why?
ETA: Will you inform me of an instant messaging service I can use that will let me chat with people with AIM screen names but is not AIM or Trillian?
--none. i wouldn't mind getting married one day (when i'm emotionally/financially secure) but kids are so not for me.
2. Are you from your parents first, second, third (...) nineteenth marriage? do you have any step/half brothers/sisters? if so, does your family mesh well together or do y'all have to work at it?
--first marriage. one younger brother, same marriage. we have to work at it, since we were both accidents.
3. how can i convince my 20 year old friend that now is not an appropriate time for having babies? she is getting married in june and she and her fiancee work less than 40 hours a week COMBINED at low/minmum wage jobs, while they live in his parent's garage apartment. she somehow thinks she's destined to be a mother in 9 months and is pissed she's not pregnant yet...i'm stumped as to how to gently breach the "shut the fuck up you're too young and ill prepared" speech. help please?
ADDED: What do you think of Verizon Eva? Good? Bad? Can you think of a better phone that's less than 200 dollars that has a keyboard and is worth getting?
It occurs to me that I've never met his father. In fact, whenever I mention it, he gets kinda defensive. They don't have the greatest relationship in the world from what I understand.
Is it a bad idea to marry somebody without meeting one of their parents? At the very least, I'd think it's a bit rude.
What say you, TQC? Does he not want us to meet because his daddy is really a hideous space alien that eats small babies? Or is it because he thinks I'm a hideous space alien that, last I checked, doesn't eat small babies, but does munch on asparagus from time to time?
I'm never working 15 hours straight ever again.
My question to you, dear TQC, is this: have you ever worked 15 hours straight? How'd you do it? What should I do for the next three hours that's not work related?
I am putting a mix together and so far i have At the drive-in, Rage against the Machine, Bad Brains, Bowie, Iggy pop, Ice Cube, Mars Volta, Naughty by nature.
any suggestions :)

3. Yes, and there will be for several weeks yet. Ugh.
Do you have trouble deciding what to make for lunch?
I still like the idea of bento boxes. But most i find pics/recipes are for preschoolers and stuff.
Would you join a community based on what your making for lunch with pictures/recipes and stuff? It doesn't have to be lunches in bento boxes just lunches.

Will you answer this post with "high-low" or "low-high" and then tell me where you’re from (city + state)?
(I already did my damn homework, I just thought you guys would get a kick out of this. also, I x-posted this to my journal because it is AWESOME. )
but here's the thing: she says to me yesterday, "Looks like you're going to be living the single life again for a little bit! Gonna have any fun while i'm out?"
i just slowly put down my cereal and turned to stare at her. wtf does that mean? so i ask her, 'wtf does that mean?'
her clarification: "Haha, I just meant that maybe you might talk to some of your girlfriends. I mean, it's not like I'm going to be around so they won't be competing with me. And maybe we can all hang out when I get back!"
me: '... you're getting a blood test when you get back. and don't kiss me after you get off that plane unless you're holding a clean bill of health.'
edit: the context was long and didn't really give any useful information. here is the gist: sig-oth wants me to find someone for us to have fun with. what are your experiences with threesomes in a long-term, stable relationship? is this something you would risk?
Among mine are anything "on my plate/too much on my plate," "that's neither here nor there," and "just a heads up."
What personal items do you share with your SO?
*Yes I spelled deodorant wrong and I forgot shampoo/conditioner. Include those in hair products if you want.
So in two weeks' time, I will be moving about an hour away from the city I live in to do a clinical placement for three months. It's cool, because it's going to be my first independent placement, and the job sounds really excellent. It's not cool, because I'm going to be away from my boyfriend, friends, and home for 5 days out of 7, and it's a little town with not a whole lot going on. Also, I hate change. Once I've adapted to it, it's all good, but until then... yuck.
1) Do you like or dislike major life changes?
2) How do you cope with change?
3) I 100% fully acknowledge that a one-hour drive does not *really* make a LDR - but any ideas for ways to stay close to the bf that aren't necessarily the phone or emails?
1. Whats an easy way to loose weight, without really changing your day much?

5. What do you think about it now?
I've never bought one and we're going this weekend to look at options, I'm just trying to prevent sticker-shock. Thanks.
And unrelated, would you tell me about your favorite pair of pants that you own?
I work as a live in Nanny. The family I work for is going away to Vail for a week of skiing. Isnt it unreasonable for them to say they arent paying me for that week since I wont be with them (I wasnt invited), I didnt ask for the time off, they just said, 'hey we'll be away that week." DOnt you think I should get something? I depend on that money to pay my car insurance, car payment, cell phone bills, gas, etc etc.
What do you think TQC?

4. shit happens when you party naked. y/n?
I'm mostly trying to figure out this... Do I pay $59 dollars for 6 weeks unlimited, $36 dollars for unlimited per month... or 10 dollars for walk in.
The walk in is the cheapest as I'm trying to be careful with money. But if I did an unlimited kind of thing.... I would feel more compelled to go in... and not, and feel guilty.
I dunno, maybe im just trying to make an excuse to not do anything.

My all time favorite cheapo hotel on the strip, the Boardwalk, was shut down a few years ago. I am trying to spend (on average) under $100 a night, which is not easy because one of the 2 nights we are staying is a friday so the price jumps up almost $60 for the second night.
If you had to pick on based on personal experience, which hotel is a better stay?
Circus Circus, The Statosphere, or The Tropicana? (all 3 star hotels, all about the same price)
I am leaning toward The Tropicana because of its convenient location to the rest of the strip, and a few friends told me while it's nothing special, the rooms are clean. (Which is all I really care about... a clean bed and a clean bathroom.)
B. "Freelance Writer?"
C. Crack Whore?

There's frantic knocking at your door at 1am. You cautiously peek through the peephole and there's a naked young man covered in blood, nursing what looks like a gunshot wound. "Please let me in", he says, "I need help, and I'm so cold. No one else will help. Please!". What do you do?
You're at a nice restaurant, waiting to be seated. While you're standing, Donald Trump leaves, passing you. You're then shown to your table, and on your seat is a wallet. You open it up, and it belongs to Trump. His ID, all his credit cards, family pictures, about about $2,000 in cash. What do you do?
Say you returned the wallet to him. If you didn't want to, your friends or SO demanded you do so. You find him in the parking lot, next to his limo. He's surprised to find that his wallet was missing and relieved that you have it. To show his appreciation, he reaches into his briefcase for a reward. You stand there, somewhat excited, wondering what it will be. He turns around, and he has just a signed photograph of himself. He steps into his car and his last words are "Watch Celebrity Apprentice" before rolling up the window. What do you do?
You're standing on the curb, waiting for the light to change, when out of the corner of your eye, you see a little pomeranian with an untended leash around his neck bolt into the street. Thinking fast, you grab the leash and pull, yanking the dog to safety, just as an SUV comes crashing down where he was. "OMG", you hear someone screaming. "OMG, THANK YOU". It's the dog's owner, who's more than grateful. Apparently her dog chased a cat and broke free from her grip. She's wearing a tight mini dress and is very attractive. "I don't have anything to give you as a thank you, but please take this". She hands you 3 free lapdance vouchers at this VIP strip club. "I work there and these are as good as money. Thank you again" as she hugs you. What do you do?
Similar situation above, except this time, it's not a dog you save, but the person who wasn't watching where they were going. He or she (whichever you're attracted to) is gorgeous and very grateful to you for saving their life. They tell you that they're a high-priced call girl/boy, very good at what they do, and very clean, and as a reward, offers you one free night of their services. What do you do?
Which would you rather have?

*they are usually short-staffed
*it's a ten-hour drive away, but my parents have offered to drive me there so I wouldn't have to worry about spending money on transportation
*would have to take nearly three weeks off my job - while this would not affect my employment status, it would be directly after my six-month review and could potentially affect me getting promoted (if I haven't already been promoted)
