If it depends on the situation/people involved, what situations would you speak up? When would you be quiet?
TQC. MY ENERGIES, HOW DO I GET RID OF THEM?
( Collapse )
( Collapse )
actually, a better question would be: how long to movies typically stay in theatres? because the movie i want to see apparently isn't to be found in any theatre ANYWHERE.
I was at Denny's and it was raining outside and I saw an older guy take his coat off and put it over his wife's head and then walked her out to their vehicle. :)
2. I'm not trying to initiate any meeting, but if there was a TQC gathering for the Californians, would you attend?
3. Pick a theme for this fictional Golden State meet
What's the most seemingly innocent task you've done lately that ended in disaster?
Short version of mine, I opened my window, it fell on my head, I now have 4 staples in my head.
Do you like acrostic poems?
Do you like cottage cheese?
What has changed?
I also would love another romance book to read of any subclasses. Can you suggest one?
When you go to Outback and order a hamburger, you can get it with cooked onion and blue cheese. How do you cook the onions? Is it in oil or some kind of sauce? Any suggestions?
I thought it would be http://journal.livejournal.com/?tag=tag1&tag=tag2 but that doesn't seem to be working.
Edit: Oops, fail. Um....what's for lunch?
(For example, "The Blonde-Haired Abercrombie Girl", "The Guy Who Wears the Weird Hats", "The Drama Major with The Long Hair", etc.)
People did actually call me "The Dark-Haired Girl" for a while at my former school.
I'm looking for a compact pair; what I have in mind is stuffing them in my bag and taking them with me to work. Usually work by myself and listen to music, and headphones don't work well at all because a) I move around a lot and can't be tied down b) I have to listen for the phone and can't do that with something stuffed in my ear.
Thin and compact, fairly good quality.
Do you have a pen-pal?
Do you listen to internet radio at all?

But this is relevant to me so I do need some serious answers lol....I'm totally at a loss & it's my turn to do the question asking.
Thanks BB ;]

Are the bulk of your LJ friends from real life or the internet?
does anybody else have trouble staying focused on the present and not worrying about everything you have to do tomorrow/this week/etc? lately i've been basically unable to stop worrying about shit like that and it's driving me insane, especially because now i'm worrying about my future with my boyfriend, which i DO NOT need to be worrying about right now. and the thing is, most of what i'm worrying about isn't stuff i actually need to worry about. it's stuff like moving in with my boyfriend (which won't happen for at least six months) and school, cause i can't afford full time right now and don't qualify for financial aid, and the fact that i don't have a job and currently owe about twice as much money as i actually have. i'm really sick of freaking out like this because i know it's pointless and unnecessary but it just seems like i have nothing better to think about and thus have to worry about stupid shit.
so, does anyone have any tips or anything for how to stay focused on the present and live in the moment and all of that? i feel like i'd be a lot less stressed out and a lot happier if i could master this.
Any other songs feature whistling?
What happens if I fail to show? (out of curiosity's sake)
Edit: Me, I think it's strangely beautiful in film, literature and music. (Like in that Kate Bush song The Kick Inside, or in Oldboy, or in a Shakespeare play) but if I were to encounter it in real life? I'm not sure how I would react.

What kind of stupid things have you done from being so tired?
My sister repeatedly asked the woman what it was that she forgot at the store in the women's dressing room...and the woman just kept on biting her lip, putting her head down, and tears were dripping down her cheeks. The woman refused to tell my sister what it was...and kept mentioning 'it's just a thing' and shaking her head and shit.
What do you guys think it could possibly be? I don't know how my sister stayed that long to hear her story...I'd bust outta there if some stranger asked me to do them a favor...especially one that involved money!
You're with your sweetie in bed, cuddling. You're aware you have to fart, but you're holding it in. Your SO makes you laugh, and you suddenly let it out. It's loud and really stank and it's all over the bed. Your reaction?
Have you ever been ashamed of something/somewhere you ate? Have you ever been embarrassed about ordering something?
"I'm not ______ but I play it/one on the internet."
ETA: okay, so i keep feeling small bites all over now, so i went to the restroom and took off the shirt. so i'm still wearing a hoodie, but truck drivers can smell a nipple from a mile away. they keep circling me like sharks swimming around a three-legged kitten. should i just say i'm sick and go home early? or should i stick around and put a stapler through the eye of the first driver that approaches within four feet?

why do you think he called? should i be worried? i'm scared to call back in case there is bad news.
edit: alright, i got up the nerve to call back. he was trying to shut his alarm off and he hit the wrong buttons.
i've been losing weight for over 3 years. i should have gone down 3-4 pant sizes but i've somehow barely managed to crack the size below the one i was at my highest weight, despite losing a significant amount of pounds and inches. i found one of my old pairs of jeans and despite being the same size and brand as the ones i've got on now, they're noticeably bigger. it's just a bit annoying.
the jeans i've got on now are the same size as the ones i had 4 years ago, when i was a few sizes bigger but they are much smaller.
i just want to make sure i cover all areas and don't end up with... "damn i should've asked about that before!"
ETA: thanks a lot you guys! some of this stuff i would not think about till i got there/too late... :\
2) Reasons why a healthy 20 year old girl would keep getting sharp pains in her chest right under her left breast? (could it be a pulled muscle?)
3) What should I do to earn some pocket money? I'd prefer to stay out of retail and prostitution :P lol
My parents have told me that as soon as I'm out of college, I'm on my own, and while they'll be glad to see me for Christmas I'd better get my own damn apartment! My father left home at 18 to join the army, and my mother married my father by the time she graduated college, so they were living together.
I just always think it's a bit... weird to read stories of thirty-year-olds with toddlers who are still living in their parents' homes, and not in separate suites paying rent but in their childhood rooms and so on.
What would you like your tombstone to read?
(This is not a serious question. Pretend that you are getting a tombstone and answer with something funny)
So I decided to just cheerfully continue on with my greeting, whenever he'd call. It forced him to have to repeat the name of the person he was calling for.
I am happy to report that this has "trained" him. Now he no longer interrupts, and he actually waits for me to FINISH. How great!
So! What is something that you conquered, at work or wherever, by forging on and maintaining a positive attitude?

If someone on your friends-list was making what you considered to be stupid decisions that could end up as big disasters, would you tell them what you really thought when they asked, be supportive, or try not to say anything either way?
What if it was some random poster in a community you didn't know at all?
Edit: Do you want your friends to point out what they consider bad decisions you make or might make? Your flist? Random internet strangers?
And if we feel up to it, make up names and stories of the other people in the picture and how they're connected with you?
My friend's twenty-year-old cousin just gave birth to a baby boy at 5 AM this morning. My friend is all excited about it, obviously, and was telling me all about the baby on the way to breakfast this morning (including his name, which is, wow, as we were saying, just ridiculously long.) The baby's name is Jacob Thomas William Cooper-Adams.
Now. It's the "Cooper-Adams" bit that has caused the small argument between us. Apparently, the cousin decided to give the baby a hyphenated last name because she and her boyfriend are (obviously) not married, are not even close to being engaged, and she didn't want the baby just to have the father's last name in case they broke up. But, she didn't want to give him just her last name in case they got married, because then the father would have to adopt the child in order for him to have his father's last name.
I say that's bullshit, because even if the mother chose to give the baby just her last name for now, and they decided to get married in the future, why would the father have to adopt his own biological child in order for that child to take his last name? There's no dispute over this guy being the biological father; his name is on the birth certificate, so why in the hell would he need to adopt the baby in order to give it his last name? It doesn't make one bit of sense to me, and I used to work for Vital Statistics back in my home province and I know I had more than one case where a couple would come in with that exact same situation, and all they needed to do was fill out a "legal name change" form and voila! In ten business days, it was done. And this couple lives in the same province I'm from, so...unless the rules have changed majorly, I'm pretty sure I'm right.
But what say you, TQC? In the case of a baby being given his mother's last name at birth, would the biological father have to actually adopt the child if, in the future, the couple decided to marry and they wanted the child to have the father's last name?
1. what would you do?
2. where would you do it?
"Energy users are concerned about the fundamental reset of energy prices over the past 10 years and the resulting volatility."
Does anyone know what this "fundamental reset of energy prices" was? Or have decent guesses on what a "fundamental reset of energy prices" could be?
I'm really tired today and I just can't even munge my way through this. EDIT: But I do know it's -extremely- unlikely this deals with oil. My company doesn't deal with oil at all, except when it comes to the tiny handful of homes in the NE that use heating oil.
Also: What do you do when you don't understand something at work?
If you wanna answer "talk to my supervisor", imagine he's in meetings for the next ~4 weeks like mine is. :p

Nice, but the random tornados and hurricane remnants can get old. Exciting, beautiful to watch, but old.
What did you want to be when you grew up? Did you do it and if not, do you plan to in the future?
Either a doctor or a street artist in San Francisco. Didn't do either and don't plan to.
Do you have a cat? Is s/he neurotic? Does this piss you off or just amuse you?
Two, one of whom is definitely neurotic and the other who couldn't care less. It's sweet and I'm quite fond of her and all of her obsessively possessive, affection starved ways.
What is the thing that really hurts that you get when you bite your nails and it's like a tiny shredded piece of nail that's still attached to your nailbed? I thought it was a hangnail but I guess that's just skin.

Which would hurt a male presidental candidate more? Being a suspect on a long list of possibles for a murder case, or getting caught getting a blowjob from an intern?
Which discovery would hurt a female presidental candidate's chances for office the most?

I am scheduled to take a trip next week, and indeed one of my flights is on American, and is one of the routes which they've been canceling. If you were in this situation, what would you do? Would you try to reschedule that flight on a different airline asap, would you just cancel your trip entirely, or would you just not worry about it at all and assume it will be magically (and safely) fixed by this time next week?
On a very related note, for those who think I should throw caution to the wind and go on my trip anyway, how expensive do you think it would it be to rent a car and drive it (on the highway) for 8 or so hours?
Was it an adult ass cheek?
Was it your SO?

when was the last time you hit your head?
what didya hit it on?
I ask because I've been very busy lately and my cat has been totally restless, walking around the house meowing constantly and cannot sit still. She's been very weird and the only time I wondered if it had to do with me is when I laid on the couch to nap today and she instantly calmed down and went over to snuggle up with me and sleep too, and didn't move until I woke up. O_o

I'm asking because I just found out today that I got into the grad teaching program I wanted so I'm about to be called Ms. "Jooolia" by 50 sixth graders, which is both good and bad.
