What's stopping you?
SRS ANSWERS ONLY PLZ. Correct identification of the mystery object will aid in a faster, speedier removal of said mystery object.
~edited for better icon lol~
The only reason I ask is because my sister is in one right now and they get to make all sorts of cool stuff like sock monkeys, Ugly dolls, jewelery boxes and leather stuff!!! I'm so jealous!!!
My friend's boyfriend just got accepted to university and insists he has no conditions on his acceptance. I thought all universities had at least a grade condition, so I'm trying to see if there's actually some places that don't or if he just has no idea what he's talking about.
EDIT: I'm in Canada, so we don't have community college. Just university and college.
What do I have?
How should I treat it?
What's the prognosis?
I don't want to go out or hang out with people, because I really don't want to piss anyone off/get pissed off, but I've got no idea what I should do to kill time.
ETA: Maybe I should've worded this better. "Crazy emotional bitch" can range from getting upset and crying at the drop of a hat/for no reason to getting angry over things way too easily. So, if you get emotional or angry, feel free to tell me what you do to pass time.
If you have ever done any kind of sinus rinse, did it hurt? Was it really as fabulous as everyone claims?
2. Do you ever add an extra "na" to "banana," "me" to "remember," or something like that?
3. Do you have any songs that you will not get tired of listening to, no matter how many times you play it?
2. Yes--I did that a few minutes ago with "remember."
3. Yes. Right now they're really catchy anime songs.
2. Do you consider yourself to be bisexual?
3. At what age do most bisexuals grow out of it?
Are there any movies that you have never seen while sober? If yes, what are they?
What movies or CDs that you own seem "out of character" for you? What are they?
To those who use such icons, was the sex of the person pictured an influence in your choice, or is it totally irrelevant to you? Do you identify with the icon, or do you use it exclusively for other reasons, such as humor?

how can i stay awake (and alert enough to write a 20 page research paper) until tuesday night, providing the last time i slept was from saturday to sunday? (all answers welcome)
what's the longest amount of time you were awake? why?
These mobsters were after me because they said they liked my style. They initiated me by cutting my arm with a blade for some reason. They aid i had to prove myself in this fight against someone else and it was like a street brawl using just fists and kickboxing moves. I ran away instead and then woke up to one of them outside my house with a shotgun but instead they gave me a virus until i joined their squad. And the virus was the color you get on nasty bruises like greeny purple growing off my hands. Ugh :(
A few days ago I went to the casino, long story short I made a few thousand bucks from less then $100, and I've payed off all my debt, bought a huge bag of weed, a few bottles of absinthe, and am holding on the the rest of the cash since it'll be nice to have a few bucks when I move to Savannah this fall. Awesome shit.
So I ask you...
Whats the most you have ever made at the casino? how much did you start with?
You (like I did) put $60 on 26, and win, $2000ish bucks, what do you do now? Mind you you've been on a huge winning streak?
What would you do if you came across a large amount of money from gambling tomorrow?
I just got my speakers to go even louder, holy shit, LUX AETERNA HERE I COME!
How would you rate this on a scale of 1 to pathetic?
What I'm wondering is if anyone on here has a nose piercing and experienced the outside of their nose, where the piercing is, the skin is getting hard...kinda looks like it's wanting to bubble up...it only gets red when I clean it, I guess from moving it around cuz I'm supposed to twist it around. The skin on the inside is getting a little hard too...is this like part of the healing process or did I do something wrong? A friend of mine's nose ring pretty much rejected her nose and popped out one night :/ I hope that's not happening to me.
"Whoa that's awesome!" or
"What is the world coming to?"
We've had small problems for a while now, mainly because we've both been increasingly very open about our jelousy. I wasn't orginally like this and thus I think the break will be good for us both to get to better places and control BUT I would like to still have a shot with her.
I want to maintain a freindship that will eventually lead us back to dating. Does anyone have any advice ?
She SAYS she wants space, time to figure out what she wants, and has not ruled out getting back together..(she normally rules this out with other guys)..I know this has come about because of my freaking out any time she hangs out with another guy alone.. (which this time around, it was her ex that had taken her virginity and vice versa..so I was with good reason peaved...)But I went overboard this time, leading to our doom.
(which i note, she does the same to me But I don't really get upset like she does being usually the more rational of us two)
I know had I not done this we'd still be together, I'd just have less of a reason to work on things and get back to my mellow.."have fun, I trust you" self from our first 3 months of dating...
can you give me advice .. Like what to do and not to do. I'm giving her the space, but I'm not giving it to her to the point that I avoid her, I'm being calm while still showing I still Love her, but i don't know what else I should do.
2. Could you tell who Lars was before the end?

I'm planning a trip to Anchorage in September. Is it worth renting a car?
Any suggestions on what to do there?
anyhow, i have this scene from a movie stuck in my head. it's of a woman in her 20s-30s, and she's staring into a mirror and she's crying. she's got a bobby pin in her mouth, opening it, and then she pulls her bangs back with it.
what movie is this? i think she might be blonde.
EDIT: i have a strong feeling that it's girl, interrupted. anyone?

My question is, would you accept a job that you know you will hate, even though there's a high chance of quitting? Even though you're making 5 dollars MORE than you usually make, ever.
A few weeks later, you see the offending dog pooping and realize it is a seeing eye-dog being walked by the person it sees for. Does this change your opinion?
So there is a movie my crazy father use to watch. All I remember is there being a bunch of kids, and the girls would go see the boys in their hang-out of sorts, let the boys look down their pants and they would get jewelry. I was really young so I don't know how old the kids were...I've always wondered what movie this was. Mostly because it seemed like a freaking crazy movie.
Do you know?
What mode do you play?
What power(s), if any?
I play Power Mode and I always use Sift and Tilt. For my third one I switch between Erode and Promote.
2.Did you get sent to a religious school when you were young?
2a. Did you have an okay experience from it?
2b. Are you horribly scarred for life because of going there?
2c. Or do you hold a grudge against people who tried to shove the religion down your throat and told you that if your beliefs didn't match theirs then you were going to hell?
1. just a bit. i watch a lot of scifi, lol.
2. K-12 Mennonite/Christian school. My experience was not so great. They screwed me over big time.
I didn't get help with concepts I had trouble learning till too late, and that was only after my mom had to go in and forcefully insist. By that time it really was pointless. I harbor a boat load of resentment to pretty much the entire school except for one teacher.
In middle school I learned that all I needed to do to pass Bible class was to make up some bullshit that would make them happy.
so. yeah. major resentment. a lot more than i realized it seems, now seeing what i wrote. woo.
what I was craving when I left the house this morning was kidney beans, corn, and salsa together. It sounds good to me, haha.
So, that's what I have for lunch.

Why did you try to kill yourself?
Do you think suicide is selfish, brave, or something else?
What's the most embarrassing thing that's happened to you on a date?
i'm only still here because this is fucking ridiculous.
I have carefully crafted entries of many many many pictures, art journal entries that i manually resized until they would sit next to each other and look good. These entries are private, but i want to transfer these images-that are already exactly how i want them-to other entries. I've been doing this for a long time. In rich-text editor, I can copy all the images from one entry and copy them onto another, exactly how i already fixed them up, with only one copy/paste motion, and without having to fuck around with the size anymore. I can't copy/paste like this onto html mode, maybe cause i didn't post in html mode to begin with.
So the question is, how do i change from html mode to rich-text editor? i've already tried to figure it out on lj, but if you're so much smarter and more computer-savvy than i am, why don't you go find the answer and tell me. make yourself useful; help a stranger in need instead of being an asshole for no good reason.

4. Suppose you're invited to a carnival as a first date. Good idea, yn? What about a haunted house? Jazz club? Interpretive dance party? Snake House? Plain old dinner and the movies? Which of those is best and which worst? Got one that could top either extreme?
I've seen Superbad & the American Pie movies (I figured they'd be mentioned the most).
Also, to go with my movie afternoon, what should I get from McDonalds?
How do you overcome this nonsense?
Also, again from the tech people-after she was done my Support icon was messed up-I got that image you get when a picture won't load-but the actual program still worked fine. It's been that way for a while only today I noticed the icon is back to normal, not sure when it happened since I pretty much got used to it and didn't notice but it had to have been within the last day or two. I didn't DO anything different-just downloaded a couple of games from online, but I don't see how that would do anything. Does anybody know what caused my icon to come back?
A) Take English at the university (where I'm taking all of my other classes). It will fit into my schedule nicely except that I will have FIVE classes on Tuesdays & Thursdays. This means 7 hours of class, nonstop, on those days.
B) Take English at the community college on Saturday mornings. This is a fine option, because CC classes are generally easier, meaning I'll have to devote even less time to this class. I did this same thing recently, and it was well worth it because I treated it like a blow-off class and still got an A. However, the class is full and I will have to go through the trouble of trying to get an override, which the teacher may not even be willing to do.
C) Take English at the community college online. I really, really hate online courses, and I avoid them at all costs. But, it would be a CC course, so I'm hoping it won't be the sort of class that will fuck me over. I wouldn't have to worry about fitting it into my schedule or being on time to class because, duh, it's online. Plus, when they do transfers from the CC to the university, only the credits go through, not the grades -- so I can get a C and as long as I pass, it won't fuck with my GPA.
What do you think? Which one would you choose?
If someone came up to you and randomly kissed you on the cheek, what would you do?
I woke up to one of my friends making out with my hand.
I said, "Wot?"
...and the next thing I know, he rolls over on top of me, starts biting my earings and doing mad and frantic kissing all over my head and neck. No lip on lip action happened, this went on for about 20 seconds, and then he rolled off me, asked, "Are you okay?" and then went back to sleep.
1. What the hell?
2. How would you handle this?
3. Any crazy awkward things similar to this that have happened to you?
Why do you feel this way?

(2) sublet and stay with a close friend in a new & nice city, possibly get a job at a lawfirm and probably work at starbucks as well, and be an actual adult?
Does this make you lol?
What would you like to teach me?
Mom was sent home with a $40 shoe for her toe, and dad was sent home with a very large rubber band apparently to teach him not to try to catch footballs again.
2)should I skip class? it's boring and pointless!
2. It takes me two hours to leave the house. 30-ish to shower and an hour and 30 mins to do other stuff that should not take very long. What the fuck am I doing wrong? How do you leave the house in a timely fashion without fucking everything up?
What do I need to get?
What fun things should I get?
Need me to pick up anything for you while I'm there?
Serious or not serious... whatever floats your boat.
(I know I need to pick up razors, hangers, and kitty litter. I might grab a new Wii game for my husband and for myself I'll probably pick up a camisole top and some squishy socks. Exciting stuff, I know!)
2. What language should i learn that can be beneficial? I speak Bosnian, German, and English and I think I might go into a career involving international stuff, but I'm not really sure on what I want to do.

ETA: I realize most of you will not know who she is, but I'm hoping someone will. If you want to know why she's annoying, look at her userinfo. It's not a huge big deal or anything, I just want some reassurance that I'm not alone in being annoyed by her.
What if by some strange twist of fate it became tiny and super dense and everything else stayed the same, would our orbit change?

I am having a difficult time deciding between "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" or "Canon in D".
When's the last time you posted something in the wrong place? What happened?
The housing market in our town is just as shitty as the rest of the nation. Within a block of that house, there are 4 other houses that have been for sale for months. The odds of them making any sort of profit at the moment are slim to none. I've been trying to tell them that they should rent it to us for a couple years in the hopes that the housing market will look up again. I just need to push some concrete information their way (and have them talk to my current landlord, who will give a glowing recommendation on my behalf). What would you do in this situation, TQC? Consider it a loss and move on? Look up some facts to show that they're better off renting the house to us, rather than attempting to sell it? Or just continually suck up in the hopes that they'll take pity on their (soon-to-be) newlywed niece? Do any of you have any recommendations for sites to find good articles to present to my uncle? I hate to just give up, because it's difficult to find a nice house to rent that will allow pets. :-\
Additionally... Chocolate easter bunnies are evil. y/y?
ETA: I haven't been harassing my uncle about the house. I only ask him about it when I run into him (which is pretty rare). I didn't want anyone to think I was smothering the poor man lol.
2. Worst song you've heard in the past 24 hours?

Did you do so to correct something, or are you a wiki-vandal?
2) For those in college or that went to college; did you ever transfer institutions? Why and how many times? Isn't it a pain?
3) To keep notes do you prefer notebooks, binders, portfolios, laptops, other?
4) Is there anything you do that makes you feel guilty but you do it anyway? If so, what?
5) How many hours of use do you consider too much time spent on:
1) Wise plain chips, saurkraut, sour cream, and hot sauce - yea, together. haha
2) Yes. First time was transferring from a community college, and now, I hate the school I transferred to. It sucks.
3) Depends. Binders, Portfolios -usually.
Meanwhile, my lease is up in a couple of months, and I'm considering starting/participating in a gallery space in some of the rehabilitated industrial/warehouse areas in town. It would be some sort of commercial lease.
1.) Is it an enormous pain in the ass, in terms of paperwork, taxes, inspectors, or whatever else, to rent industrial as opposed to residential space? (Living would either be under-the-table or probably an addition to the lease.) Am I just going to have a nervous breakdown instead of having an awesome time working with my community?
2.) If I do go with this plan, will you come to my gallery openings? I promise there will be liquor.
3.) If I go one step further and actually rent a storefront (ground floor, with a window, etc.), do the terms of that type of lease automatically change/become even more terrifying based on zoning/whatever?
1) What are your bathing habits like?
Whenever I bathe, I take a bath for the shaving part (I'm CLUMSY and I'd waste so much water if I did it in the shower) and stuff, and a super quick shower for my hair (I hate putting my head under water/getting my face wet).
2) What song is stuck in your head?
How did you like it?
If you haven't, then what's your favorite condiment?
Come on, I want to hear the, "I beat the shit out of this dickhead," stories. Especially amusing ones.

I'm not so much talking about the "THIS IS WHY I'M HOT" ones, but the "Your boyfriend..." or anything that could be described as "sassy."
Have you ever found anything interesting sorting through family stuff?
My dad and I found my late grandfather's navy medals and some booklets of war bonds and war rations.
My gram gave me a big log/stick of it. I found a salad recipe (although it's not really a recipe, I guess. What would you call it?) on the back of my dressing bottle that includes baby spinach, walnuts, mandarin oranges, and red onions, but I don't have any of that. And I hate mandarin oranges.
How awesome is bleu cheese? I've been using it in salad: frisee, radicchio, baby romaine, red onions,carrots, walnuts, craisins, and raspberry hazelnut vinaigrette. I'm going to get some more tomorrow and slice up some baked chicken into it.
What's your favourite salad?
While on the plane, the flight attendant hands you a magical menu. You have to order a food and drink that you've never had before. What do you order?
When you arrive, you're told that you get to stay anywhere you want -- but yup, it has to be a type of housing that you've never stayed in before. Sleeping outside even counts. Where do you stay?
You get a free personalized tour! Where do you go in this unknown country?
You need to document your trip with something -- not photos or filming. How do you show people where you've been?
It's time to go :( On the flight back, you're given a choice of movies. Again, you have to pick something you've never seen before. What do you watch?
You're home. Who do you call first to talk about your crazy adventure?
