do you prefer to live in the city or the country?
Mine is breakfast. My whole day is ruined if I don't have a decent breakfast.
Here's a picture of the cat.
And a choice of names. Suggestions of other names in the comments are welcome.
What should I name my cat?
Backstory: my dissertation was due in on Friday. By handing in time, Friday noon, I had been awake for about 30 hours, so I decided to skip my afternoon lectures. Oh dear. (P.S. My dissertation rocked).
During the lectures, the teacher announced the deadline for a piece of work (which are normally the day of class, Friday) - I check the course website today (last checked it on Friday before the lectures) and I realise the deadline was Monday. The 'extended' deadline was earlier today/yesterday (Tuesday). I've done the work, but I'll be submitting it tomorrow (Wednesday), with a grovelling apology.
The one person I know in this class - my friend - (my least favourite class - the assignments are hellish) didn't bother to inform me about the deadline. Charming.
Whose fault is this?
How annoying is this?
Should my teacher mark this?
What should I do to my friend?
TY TQC :)
Are there any shampoos and conditioners that are especially friendly towards acne-prone skin? That I can find at the average national chain store?
What are you doing... right.... now?!
Wanna chat? We can all group chat!
WEREN'T THESE QUESTIONS TOTALLY STALKERISH?
Can you REALLY watch a sunset on your own?
what if it's in a trailer park?
...a few acres of land?
What would you do with this trapdoor?
Or any other awesome secret trapdoor?
(I was thinking: use it to lure the sexiest ones into my bedroom, use it as a portal between two worlds for my cats and their cats, attach a tin-can telephone between floors.)
Edited to add: THERE ARE NOW ABOUT 8 TRILLION "INAPPROPRIATE" PHOTOS IN THE COMMENTS OF THIS POST. Essentially, I spammed myself. But it is completely top-notch, and including micropenis.
BESIDES Being RICK ROLL'D
what kind of terrible awful scary side effects did you have?
is it normal to have back and shoulder pain, tingling, or numbness with ciprofloxacin?
i doubt it :(
Do you like Will Smith?
How did my five long stemmed red carnations survive in a vase in my bedroom from February 10th until March 31st and still look good? And why did they suddenly wilt on April 1st?
So, tonight I find out that for my birthday present, he decides to go halves in buying me a new graphics tablet with a friend of mine. however, instead of going halves, said friend is flipping about $60 more than husband man. I found out because I was grabbing a file from said friend's email and opened the wrong message. It's very much the husbands style to not plan to buy anything else, so I'm not actually betting on getting anything more from him. Do I act suprised and happy as to not look like a spoiled little bitch? Do I take it up with him later? Would there be a sane reason for this to happen? The conversation that I had with husband-man took place long before he started talking with friend about my birthday.
Do I get to be a bit pissy at this or should I get back to the kitchen and not really expect anything?
Anyway, I gave all that background to ask you this: Does it make sense to have a day of silence when the school is so accepting? I'm undecided myself, so I want some opinions. What are your thoughts? Who is this protest supposed to target?
When did it air?
Mine: Once and Again :) Air dates: Roughly 1999-2002. *wistful*
Have you ever dated anyone who was of a different race?
What do you think about interracial relationships? Is the world ready for them?
Guys, do you like dumb women? If so, why?
Ladies, do you ever act dumb to try and score men? Has it worked?
2.Do you pay it weekly, every fortnight, month or other?
3.Where abouts do you live?
4.And if you can't answer that.. Lets say that everyday for the rest of your life you would get $30 big ones to spend. You have to spend it on something fun and silly. What do you buy?
2 Is anybody else craving fish and chips and also some vinegar?
3 Has anyone here ever had a false pregnancy where you fake yourself out so hard that you start having morning sickness, etc?
4 Sharpie porn would get 5 stars on Redtube, it is yes or it is no? (THIS IS FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS PEOPLE GET WITH IT)
5 How is vegetable porn ever sexy? I don't think even vegans would get off on it.
7 Have you ever spammed yourself?
8 Do I think about porn constantly or do I only come to TQC when I am thinking about porn?
9 I can't decide if I should experiment with my current artichoke (in fridge) or eat it the same way I have ALWAYS eaten it (boiled with butter/mayo/wasabi mayo). Experimenting might destroy a holy artichoke, but it might result in delicious accidents. What do I do?
Goodnight! Remember that I love you all, with more intensity.
2. If you do, what do you do about it?
3. Are there any drugs out there that really work well?
I'm suffering from insomnia in a very dangerous way. I'm looking for some serious help, and fast.
I would like to treat it without drugs. Over the counter stuff does NOT work for me.
Some of my symptoms are getting worse. I'm losing mobility in my hands, I'm gagging and throwing up when I drink. Like my body is on total shut down. My teeth are clacking too. :(
Have you ever done, or known someone to do, a job that is generally regarded as easy, but it turns out that it's not easy at all?
if you don't, do you think that's a weird thing to do?
I take about three (plus another for ADD) and have over a 1,000 milligrams a day.
Apple MacBook Pro
Dell Latitude D630
Dell M1530 XPS
Which would YOU choose? I have no idea what is a good choice :/
ETA: what I need for a comp, is pretty much just a means of taking notes, writing papers, creating lesson plans, making presentations, emailing, chatting, surfing the net, etc.
If so, do you use a vaporIzer?
Do you lIke it?
What kind do you have/did you use?
How much money should i look to spend for a good one?
What kind should i get?
(just now. i called in sick to my school where i observe. didn't need to, but... maybe it's a sign.)
Who here is an April birthday?
We're the best, y/y?
What day is your April birthday on? What are your plans for your birthday?
Edit: And just so the rest of you plebes aren't all left out, what's YOUR birthday? Are you sad that it isn't in April? I know you are. ;)
AM I GROWING UP, TQC?!
And for the women/crossdressers/trans/etc. out there in TQCland, do you love the sound your shoes make when you wear high heels?
There's a sign on the car stereo shop across from my hotel that says, "Warning! Building is alarmed!" Oh no, I didn't mean to startle it. I hope it doesn't kick.
what type of car?
What's the last thing you spent money on?
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Recently one kid told me and my coworkers that his mom watches playboy for tips, and that she has really hairy legs.
- Has a question ever came to you to ask on TQC IRL, but you later forgot it?
- Family Guy: was it funnier pre- or post- Peter's
2. Do you like yogurt? Favorite flavor?
3. f you had to go to jail for committing one crime, what would your record say? (eg: public indecency, homicide, etc)
4. When you talk to yourself, is it usually in a narrative style (eg: I'm gonna go do this, and then this ..), a self-effacing style (eg: I'm such an idiot, why the fuck am I doing this) or a positive style (eg: you go! yeah! I'm great!)
why the hell am i having these dreams? i'm happy with my boyfriend, and i don't currently like any of the guys i dreamed about.
- Does your SO snore?
- Does it keep you awake?
- What do you do to make them stop snoring?
- What do you do so you can sleep while they snore?
- not always but if it's super loud yes
- I used to elbow him, then lastnight I found that rubbing his stomach made him stop, but I just realized that is probably because he was awake :/
- nothing! ack
So in the United States chips=French fries (or just fries). So in Britain are curly/waffle fries called curly/waffle chips?
I would assume so but for some reason I just thought I'd ask, in case they were given a completely different name.
Is it weird that it took so long? Do you think this is a more normal-sized woman's body than that of a size 0 model, or is it equally unhealthy?
Should I get soft curls in my hair or just flip up the ends?
(There's pictures on my latest post in my journal)
If you found out someone you were dating had previously been on a tv show like Springer or Cheaters, would you continue to date them? What if they claimed it was all an act?
Do you think it's weird for adults to read books for pleasure that are meant for children/teens?
Animals you have hit with a car (either as a driver or passenger)? It doesn't have to be a fatal accident, just that contact was made
What should I do with them?
What about $30 for a Dreamcast with only a fishing rod controller and fishing game (and all cords)?
I'm trying to sell them on Craigslist for my mom. They were donated to her work (a homeless shelter) so she asked me to sell them and give the money to her work. A private org. matches each donation 100% up to 30k.
If I wanted to buy a car from craigslist or some other private seller, would I be able to get an auto loan from my bank for it? I only want to spend about $2000. What kind of older 4 door car should I look for (not Ford, sorry)? There was a 95 Honda that looked nice.
I can only afford one: Get my wisdom tooth pulled or get new glasses. Which should I do? The tooth has a hole in it that's bugging me, but I think the nerve is dead so it's not that big of a deal. My glasses rx isn't too off but it's enough to annoy me and make me squint. Also, why is insurance for glasses and dental so freaking stupid? We have some of the best insurance around for either and we still can't afford for all three of us to go at the same time.
EDIT! What kind/brand of cheese do they use for their cheese dips at mexican restaurants? I asked a waitress one time and she told me "A white cheese" GEE THANKS! That shit is so fabulous I want to make it at home and eat it all the time. It seems like it might be pepperjack but I am not sure.
I've had both great and terrible experiences with each, and we're moving in a few weeks so I'm curious as to what others think.
What is the one absolute must-have amenity in a rental place for you, not counting things like a bathroom that any residence obviously needs? For me, it's a washer/dryer; while I can live without a dishwasher and without a real closet, I cannot stand laundromats or shared laundry rooms.
2) Have you ever been promoted? How did you adjust? How much did your responsibility increase? Did your pay increase?
3) How in shape/out of shape do you think you are? What do you do to stay in/out of shape?
suggest something else
When I see him next (most probably for lunch sometime over the next few days) should I give him a couple of them or should I not tell him i baked at all?
Bonus Question: Why do I allow myself to get emotionally attached to someone who doesn't want me?
I never drink caffeinated stuff, but this morning I sucked down two cups of coffee, and I'm still jazzed four hours later.
What did you dream about last night?
I had a dream that a house was trying to eat me :/
Do you have any irrational fears?
You're driving home late at night, down a fairly lonely stretch of road. Ahead of you, there's a car parked on the shoulder of the road. As you get closer, you hear a shriek, and a woman runs across the street, trips, and falls, and quickly starts crawling on her hands and knees. Behind her, a large man with an axe is chasing her, with obvious hostile intent. They're both so fixated on their current dramatic situation, that neither one of them notices you in your car, which is approaching. The man lifts his axe and is about to swing it at the woman, who is cowering and screaming. You could keep at your current speed and swerve to hit him before the axe reaches its target if you wanted to. You have no information about the situation except for what I've described. What do you do?
Would you like to sing with me? I don't care how good or bad you are. =]
ETA: The song is of YOUR choice! So pick one and tell me!
(Would you consider yourself a fanatic?)
What is your favorite Beatles song?
Which Beatle is your favorite?
DO YOU HATE YOKO FOR BREAKING UP THE BAND?
For those experience with this sort of visit, how is it best to conduct oneself? Is it inappropriate or gauche to ask "how are you feeling"? or "how things are going?" or to act as if nothing is really wrong? Do people hospitalized for mental issues in general like to discuss them, or is that a taboo topic when visiting? Or is it totally on a person-by-person basis, effectively rendering this question moot?
1.How do exposure times differ?

What is the worst thing a friend has done to you?
anyone here in Forensics?
2) What should I make for dinner? It's just me, tonight.
3) What is your favorite comic? (web, manga, american, doesnt matter)
4) You just got 2 tickets to an event/show/festival/etc that you were DYING to go to! Who do you take with you and what event is it?
what kind of stir fry sauce can i make at home without having to go to kroger and buy a bottled stir fry sauce?
Hugs from behind.
My mom's having one in early June. I emailed her today to let her know I'd be able to stay with her for a bit afterwards if her husband wasn't taking much time off. Yeah, apparently he's not taking any time off at all. Am I crazy for thinking she won't be able to function on her own for at least a few days? My mom does think she's superwoman though...
a) you think you'll still be into them and don't mind making plans that far in advance.
b) you just want as many people to see your friend's band play as possible.
c) some other (snarky!) reason.
for those of you that never invite people anywhere:
raspberries are delicious? y/y?
what's your favorite fruit?
I am turning 21 this Friday and there are times when I feel like I should be around 16.
It's a long shot, but can anyone direct me in the right direction of something that fits those criteria? Thanks in advance.
(besides hookers n blow)
How bout "Strumpets and Skunk"?
Let's say your friends like to call you Whiskers. Why?
At work, how do you feel about people who lick their fingers to flip through papers? The papers are touched by many.
I think I'm depressed, but I'm a very happy person and my life is pretty good. WTF is up with that? Chemicals suck.
2. Why do cats love boxes so much?
3. When you are on the phone and put on hold for FAR too long, what goes through your mind?
4. Would you rather have people number their questions or have them in paragraph form?
5. Why does anyone give Maria Carey money?
p.s still no sleep
p.p.p.s.s I edited
Say you're single. At some gathering, you meet a 65-year old man/woman. He/she seems to be really interested in you. They're average-looking for an older guy/gal, but they have a good sense of humor and a pretty good fashion sense. They ask you out to dinner. Do you accept?
You bump into the same person the same night, and you talk a bit more. Turns out, you have a few things in common. Similar interests, like the same movies, and you guys go into an interesting, detailed discussion about your favorite book/author. You're evenly matched. This person asks you out again. Do you accept?
While rubbing elbows with other people, you discover that the older guy/gal who's been asking you out all this time is a billionaire! Lots of property, loves to travel, and quite generous. You bump into this person a third time, and they smile and say, "Third time's the charm. I gotta ask one last time. Will you go out with me?" What do you do?
How important is material success in a suitor/potential lover?
Will one of you help me write cover letters to send out with my resume? I suck at them. :(
"Should potential clients have access to their attorney's track record in court?"
"Explain the following: 'It is the duty of the prosecutor to seek justice, not merely a conviction'."
I cant decide which one I want to do the paper on.
FIRST ONE IT IS, I guess.
So, what's the last thing you got noticed for?
I just got called out for my mirrored aviators being badass twice in the last hour.
Then it went to voicemail. Which got me wondering, what happens when you get rid of your old phone number? It was a contract as opposed to Pay As You Go. It was Vodafone and in the UK incase it matters.
I'm just curious as to what happens. Has he got it again or has someone else?
Edit: Maybe that's just a northern California thing... But yes, in Nor Cal the nautical star is called a "norcal star". Especially with tattoos or on clothing and stuff.
What is the best job you've ever had? What made it rock?
Worst - I worked as a security guard in Boston. I was out on a public plaza all day, and my post meant that I was standing for eight hours a day, and five of them were in full, direct sunlight -- in the middle of summer. I got heatsick at least once a week, dehydrated, wound up with swollen feet/ankles from all the standing on a hard concrete surface, and my coworkers were awful.
Best - I worked for a small independent sandwich shop. It was awesome because I was one of only four employees, the owner was a really good friend of mine, and everyone got along well -- there was a lot of trust, and we all did a lot to help each other out. When I had to move and wound up living almost an hour's walk away, the owner and one employee who had a car made sure I never had to walk home at night, and I helped out one of the other employees who was trying to learn Spanish and having trouble. We were like a bunch of friends, rather than employer and employees.
i hate how dry my skin tends to get around my nose.
I was going to comment!
And is it possible to indent a whole paragraph from both sides, like make the margins bigger in just one little section?
I cannot figure it out for the life of me.
What kind of gift would you buy them?
What would your outfit look like?
Would you try some moves on them while parked somewhere after the prom is over?
If you like the series, who's your favourite character? Why?
If you don't like Twilight or never read it, why don't you like it/why haven't you read it?
Would you read a storyline that I wrote for a Twilight-based game?
Do you think that Twilight is the new Harry Potter?
Completely unrelated: What exactly is the function of a rubber duck?
2. Bella Swan, because I'm her RL twin.
3. Can't answer it because I love the series.
4. Well, because I wrote it, I already read it.
6. To keep you entertained while taking a bath.
2. Would you ever give your kid a name made of awesome?
e.g. if your surname is Legend, give all your children first names starting with 'A', so each is A Legend,
e.g. initials that spell something hilar., like the author C.U.M. Smith. ROFLcopter.
3. Are double-barrelled names cute or pretentious?
Stolen from this.
Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Why?
Our dress code was a mile long, but some of the highlights of mine were:
We weren't allowed to wear red or blue shoelaces or anything with sports logos on it (particularly Georgetown Hoyas and the raiders).
If you wore baggy pants, the narcs on campus would make you take your belt off, and if you could take your pants off without unbuttoning them, you had to change into your PE shorts.
No hats/beanies of any sort.
It was mostly cause our school was in a fairly good-sized gang area.
today, i walked by one in the halls and a casually tossed corn nut or something hit my shoulder. TQC, what would be the funniest/greatest method of making them stop? i don't want to do anything that will get me suspended or anything (so no physical violence).
in b4 "lol highschool".
1. Have you ever been bullied? Why?
2. High school harassment reports ... ever filed one?
3. What's your favorite kind of soda?
2.I keep wanting to snack and munch on food(typically unhealthy)...any tips on how to make the cravings go away?
I just got really upset because I was reading wikipedia entries on Harry Potter, and now that he isn't a horcrux anymore, he can't speak Parseltongue. That blows.
2) I'm going to buy flowers tomorrow, but can't choose between petunias or impatiens. Which one should I get?
what magazine(s) do you subscribe to?
Obama's church founded on radical creed
To appease my wrath that he broke my laptop (because I use it to work), he bought me a high end gaming computer from dell. One that I picked out. We have WoW on it and its beautifuland pretty and shiny! But I want more games on it.
I LOVE survival horror. Anyone know of any good survival horror games that I might just lose my sanity over because its just so scary its awesome?
Ones that won't hate Windows vista?
Or, hell, any awesome games to put on this thing? I also like silly, cartoony games like Spiro and the Jak and Daxter games. (Daxters a dirty little bastard, huh?)
Even if he's a jerk and has put me and my sisters boyfriend in the hospital?
Edit to add the backstory
We got him from a co-worker of my step dads. They abused him to the point of their 5 little girls pulling his tail, chucking him outside in the snow for hours, locking him in the basement with no food.
My mom finally decided we needed to bring him to our house when the co-worker squeezed him until his eyes bulged out.
Once he got here, he was extremely scared of us because the reasons stated. As time went on, he got better. He became my best friend, because I didn't yell at him for puking all his food up (he inhales it STILL to this day) and attacking our other cat.
He started to turn though as time went on, attacking my sister as she walked down the hall, attacking Drew while he was feeding him, biting my mom for walking past the dining room table. Today is the first time he's attacked me in months.
My sister is attacked anytime she's home and he's out. Drew doesn't bother coming over if Peanuts out and my mom she got over him attacking her and he doesn't do it anymore.
If it was up to me, I wouldn't have him euthanised, but it breaks my heart everytime my parents put him in his room because he's attacked someone. That's not fair and it would be easier on everyone if he didn't live here anymore.
( Collapse )
TQC, what will you do to make me feel better?
Also, I'm about to watch Bram Stoker's Dracula. Did you like or dislike this movie. Why?
A. Killing a person
B. Mistreating/Abusing a person
C. Paying to have a person tortured, abused and killed, so you can eat them
If you picked C, following that logic can you be upset with someone for mistreating their pets AND eat a Big Mac without being a hypocrite? How?
Lets say that you live in a college dormitory and have public bathrooms. One morning, you get up, grab your shower basket and hit the showers. When you finish, you realize WTF YOU FORGOT YOUR TOWEL! All you have is your clothes and your shower basket with assorted shower things. You didn't bring a robe because you usually dry off and change before you go back to your room (Which is pretty far down the hall). At the moment, no one else is in the bathroom.
What do you do!?
ETA: Since most of you chose to just get dressed... Somehow, someone stole your clothes when you were in the shower (Or they magically disappeared, whichever you like). Now what?!
How do I fix it?
Serious + non serious appreciated.
But seriously, wtf it hurts :(
Is it nobody's business but theirs, if they have the money to pay for all that gas, or does it bother you that they're driving an unnecessarily wasteful vehicle?
How far do you think you could make the cork shoot out of a bottle?
Do you like champagne?
( Collapse )
I'm ordering in Indian food tonight but I can't decide between two dishes so I wanted you all to pick for me! For a vegetarian entree would you rather have:
(A) Bhartha - Tandoor roasted eggplant pulp with peas, onions, tomatoes, and fresh seasonings
(B) Channa Masala - Chickpeas cooked with mild spices, tomatoes and onions
PS. Who have you been fantasizing about lately? Tell me about it ...
I always pronounced .gif like gift minus the t but recently I heard it pronounced like Jif like the peanut butter. Which is the right way?
Also how is meme said? I always say in my head
meh (like men minus the n) mmmmmm
but I heard someone on a podcast say it like
mee (like me, myself and I) mmmmmmm
Thank you TQC for all your awesome advice, I really think it helped:D
2. I drink so much lemon water the enamel on my teeth seems to be getting soft.
How do I reverse the effects of this? I stopped drinking so much lemon water btw.
3. I'm making grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup for dinner. What are you having?
4. Can you give me a random fact about King Tutankhamun?
5. What is your favorite moment in history?
