I just got this email, saying, "Oh my god, and have you really had sex with her boyfriend behind her back?"
While I'm writing a recommendation letter for this person.
How should I totally ruin their life?
Are you recovering from something? (could be a cold, drugs, eating disorder, breakup) What are you recovering from? What is helping? What isn't?
If you aren't recovering from something, should you be?
If you had to choose between love and no money or money and no love for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
Your best friend calls you five minutes before her exam crying and panicking, she begs you to pull the fire alarm.
Also you just had sex with her boyfriend behind her back.
Do you wear underwear to bed?
D'you ever randomly get the urge to destroy things?
Not in with the usual fun-filled questions but...
What do you say to a manager/hiring manager when turning in an application to them?
I need a job. I've had past experience (2 years @ a Mortgage Company as an office clerk)
but I have never done any type of retail, so, I don't know what to say. The obvious is to introduce myself, a smile and hand shake? But what do I say after that in reference to my application?
What is the best time to ask for the manager/hiring manager without possibly... interrupting him/her?
When was the last time you really put your foot in your mouth? Tell me about it.
Today I yelled at someone for smoking in the stairwell of my boyfriends apartment building. I figured they had just come in off the street through the broken door to smoke out of the rain (they've been having problems with people coming in off the street and doing shit in the stairs and she looked pretty ragged.) Only it turned out to be the landlord and apparently smoking is allowed in the building and she got really mad at me. I hope my BF doesn't get in trouble over this.
Nevermind. As it turns out, the smoking ban in Wa. state covers the public areas of apartment buildings so I was right and she was wrong.
Favorite romantic plotline from a sitcom?
Ex: Ross/Rachel, Niles/Daphne, Rose/Miles
Hey, TQC; when was the last time you felt used?
Five minutes ago. I hung up, glad that she felt I could be talked to...but I got the feeling that a brick wall would have done just as well.
Okay, I need a link on how to do crosshatch shading.
I haven't drawn in almost a year [ex-bf didn't like it :P] and am now trying to re-teach myself, lmao. And right now, shading is my killer D:
Nevermind, found some!
What's the thing you miss most about who you used to be?
I've been writing a research paper for EIGHT FUCKING HOURS. This is only my first semester and I don't think I can handle six more years of this shit. Anyone have college survival tips? Horror stories? Pufferfish macros?
I can't sleep. Its nearly 4 am here. My bf just broke up with me. Sigh. Can someone please cheer me up before I punch someone/something?
Who else just got fucked with sandpaper?
Oh cheerio, children! How are the biscuits?
ETA: Is it necessary for an employer to know about your smoking habits when you would not be doing it during your shift/working hours?
Have you ever had a situation where you reacted one way, but wish you reacted differently? Elaborate.
They say the best way to hook a gemini, is to stimulate their mind.
So, Science Center as a date? Good? Bad?
What other ways could you stimulate
a gemini's the mind? (Date wise.)
How about other fun dates?
Edit: I'm a girl!
My friend was recently hired by University of Phoenix, so I googled them, finding lots of bad stuff.
How do YOU feel about UOP?
What are some experiences you've had with them, if any?
I saw a girl at the gym yesterday wearing a shirt that said: "I <3 FIGHTERS", as in UFC, MMA, etc. All personal feelings about such things aside, I started to think about what I would put on a shirt.
What would your "I <3 ______" shirt say?
What tips can you give me for finding a job long distance?
There's a local bikini bar that has had quite a bit of legal troubles recently. The man who the bar hired as its defense lawyer is running for county prosecutor. Let's call him John. John's opponent claims the bikini bar denigrates women and that anyone who represents them legally is out of touch with the community's fairly conservative values. John says everyone is entitled to legal representation in our court system, and there's no shame in defending a client like that.
Based solely on this, would you be more likely to vote for John or for his opponent?
what are your favorite online stores to shop at?
give me some suggestions for things to browse or buy online!
What time did you go to sleep last night?
What did you dream about?
1. Around midnight
2. Anatomy.. so much anatomy.
So I have a job interview at Lowe's hardware store Thursday and I'm not sure what to wear. I don't want to look TOO nice since it's a hardware store and all-I don't want them thinking I'm too afraid to get work/get dirty on me etc-so should I wear my khaki pants that are more casual but with a nicer top or should I go ahead and go for dress/office work pants and the nice shirt?
Can someone tell me how to keep myself from eating so many of these delicious, delicious golden raisins? What can't you stop eating, once you start?
Also, more specifically, has anyone ever quit Effexor? Or known anyone that has? If so, how long did it take for the withdrawal symptoms to go away?
well your experience is a bit sparse but your resume looks in good order and you're enthusiastic, which is something we like to see in a rodeo clown
so, when can you start?
My friends and I got into a debate about if a boy or girl you are interested could ever be out of your league? Some of my friends said yes because a lot of times, attraction is what starts it. Some of my friends said no, you can fall in love with someone by personality. I didn't have a 100% answer but I've seen both happen.
So TQC, what do you think? Can a guy or girl ever be considered "out of your league"?
Extra Credit Question! Unrelated to the first question!: Hot boy I like invited me to go camping. Do you think he's interested also or does he want to kill me? What do you think he would do with my body?
...and not a decent "falepalms" one in the bunch. I usualy run this one for that sort of thing, a general "shocked" one that'll work.
When you feel the need to express a "facepalm", if you even know what that is, what icon do you use?
What would you do if you were having sex with someone and they died?
What if you were in a position where you were stuck underneath them? Or, restrained somehow?
What is the best site to locate someone you've lost contact with when you're not sure of their current residence?
ETA: I'm looking for a couple who are in their 50s/60s so they wouldn't be on MySpace or Facebook, etc; and I don't really know many of the relatives names.
If your country drafted you to go to war, would you?
I wouldn't. I'd leave the country if I couldn't get out of the draft for medical reasons. Hell, I might leave the country anyway because I'd be so disgusted.
I suspect the answer is more vague than the question but then that is so often the case. People see things differently, the world is not set on the perspective of one. We are all a part of the greater whole but really can only see pieces of it.
What do you suppose is the slowest day on livejournal in any given week?
I am at my wits end.
I live in Vegas

I've tried several sport stores, wal mart, target, and come up with nothing...
i am uncircumcised. are you? lol.
how do you feel about guitar solos? favorite of all time?
i love them, even tiny mini insignificant ones that barely stand out. anytime i can focus on the guitar in a song is good times. i am partial to anything claudio sanchez has ever done live, but i also dig on slash's huge one in "november rain" and a variety of others. i'm big on guitar.
I have a saltwater aquarium and the fish that are in there I have had for well over a year. They all have been doing great. Except this morning I noticed to of my blue damsils kinda floating at the top, and they lost their color. Both of their tails are chewed up and I suspect its the big bully fish doing this. My questions...
1. How do you doctor a fish?
2. What should I do about the big bully fish?
I can't spank him and I won't flush him.
Have you ever driven yourself crazy waiting for a rejection letter?
Are leggings worn as pants acceptable in public?
Do you think they look silly in the summer time?
How do I get my baby pug to stop barking at the neighbors?
I just lost my job, school is finishing, and I don't know what to do with myself. Here are my current options:
1) Get a new job similar to my last one: full-time, 9 to 5, doing boring administrative work for the federal government.
2) Attempt to be a writer: write grant proposals, get a studio downtown, enter (legit) contests, try to get published, and develop a manuscript.
3) Go to school: get a student loan, and take a bunch of summer courses to up my GPA.
I'm also open to any serious suggestions.

You are torn between two romantic interests, which do you pick? (written from a female POV, but change it to male POV if you are a male)
1. Guy you are currently dating. He fits most of your criteria for someone you'd like to marry someday, you have a lot of fun together, you have amazing physical chemistry, and he's really into you. Yet there's something a little off, a connection that hasn't been made yet. You've only been dating for about a month so perhaps the connection will come later, but no guarantees.
2. Really good friend of yours you can talk to for hours. You laugh a lot, and enjoy spending time with him. You feel like you can tell him anything. Initially you didn't find him attractive but he's getting more attractive as you get to know him better. There is a really deep connection you don't have with guy number one, yet there are a lot of things about him you wouldn't want in a potential spouse.

I got woken up ahead of schedule this morning by the sound of my cat hawking up a hairball.
What unpleasant thing woke you up early today?
Imagine this is you. Just IMAGINE, okay? You're female, and you're wearing a short-ish, fluttery skirt, for whatever reason. You're walking across a parking lot into a mini-mart because you need snax of the worst kind, and a Diet Cherry whatever. A gust of wind comes up and BLOWS YOUR FUCKING FLUTTERY-ASS SKIRT OVER YOUR HEAD. Two people, men, are outside, one a big, beefy guy in his forties with one of those creepy goon mustaches that drip down into a greasy goatee, and the other guy is a youngish gawky fellow. They're both staring at you.
How do you react? What do you do and/or say?
Will you distract me from doing my homework by commenting to this post?
Could you show me a picture of something you find to be very ugly?
What would you rather being doing right now? I'd much rather be outside walking somewhere.
Okie, I work with Mozilla Firefox as my browser. My question is related to bookmarking pages.
There is an add on called del.icio.us that stores my bookmarks when I click the Tag button.
What I want to know is how I arrange said bookmarks like you can with Internet Explorer so I can find my bookmarks a little easier.
Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?
Having nearly exhausted my resources for advice and decision making, I come to the all-knowing TQC. I need to make a decision--fast. Should I go home (to my parents' home) for the summer, or should I stay in my state?
I just got my EMT certification, but it won't transfer to my parents' state in time for me to use it. I had been planning on going home, so I would have to spend some time reversing that process. Basically, I need to know now! Help me!
So, it's spring cleaning time, and my bathtub is nasty. I really need to drano a clog out, and I wanted to use some scrubbing bubbles to clean off the soap scum. I was going to go use the drano now, but I was wondering, how long do I need to wait before I can use the scrubbing bubbles? I know it says not to mix drano with other cleaning products, so I'm kind of scared... But it needs to be done...
Can hair change over time? Is it possible that someone born with straight hair can develop curly hair or vice versa? How does it happen?
Also, a friend told me that people's hair have limits to how long their hair can grow. Is there any truth to that? I guess it makes sense if our eyebrow hairs have a standard length that they grow.
Ladies (or gay dudes if there are any), if you were about to give your fella some oral stimulation and juuust before you wrapped your mouth around the glans you took his dick in one hand and tapped on the tip and spoke into it like a microphone and said "testing..1..2..3" would he find that funny
and kinda hot or irritating?
Gentlemens, what do you think?
1. For those of you with bicycles, do you always wear a helmet? If not, do you have a helmet?
2. Where can I get a rather cute helmet? I've checked bike stores, sporting goods stores, and Target. Preferably an actual store I could go to. I'd rather not order one.
3. I'm going to start riding my bike to work, what are some not-so-obvious tips to avoid getting hit by a car? I'm going the way with the least amount of traffic but I'm a huge worrier. I usually just ride my bike around my street and neighboring developments, so traffic has never been a huge issue.
would you have chosen amber or daisy?
How many more seasons of Rock of Love will there be?
How long will it be before contestants realize getting a tattoo related to Bret Michaels/the show doesn't mean they'll get picked and is just really stupid?
So my old lady got some boudoir photos done this weekend, and I guess she's going to give them to me as a wedding gift. That's nice & all, but since I've never really understood the appeal of having n00dz or sex videos of somebody you see naked on a regular basis anyway, what the hell am I supposed to do with them? How much do you think I could get for them on ebay?
Do you possess any racy photos of somebody you know? Why?
1. Do you like the smell of gasoline?
2. How often do you trim your fingernails?
3. How large is the room you're currently in?
4. Have you ever ridden a motorcycle?
Imagine that, through a series of events, your own father does something that makes at least one of the dudes from Death Cab for Cutie, as well as a bunch of other people whom you respect, think you're pretty lame.

So I'm supposed to be studying for my ethnic and race relations final (which is tomorrow) but instead I'm lamenting the fact that I have to hand back my beloved laptop, Mr. Chips, a mere week from now (we rent laptops from our university.) So I am totally thinking that a new laptop will probably be one of my first post-school purchases, but I admit that outside of what they LOOK like, I'm not that "up" on what a laptop should actually have. All I know is that, as much as I love my current, rented laptop, it is basically a piece of shit (but that's probably due to the fact that it's refurbished.)
In any case, I am looking for recommendations. I use my laptop for surfing the web (obviously), but I also use it for my writing, and I play Sims 2. I know I'll need a lot of RAM, but in terms of actual brands, what ones do you all have experience with, and which ones do you recommend? Which ones should I avoid at all costs?

Mike Huckabee is coming to speak at my college, and my boyfriend wants to protest his arrival. For what reason, I'm not exactly sure. Though he is politically active, he's never expressed passionate opposition of him. I think he just wants to play with his new megaphone that he purchased online. I really, I mean really don't want to go, but would it make me a bitch to not be there as his gf? I feel like not many people will be there and my face will just be for sale.

If you were poking around on the internet to see what an old friend was up to and found their blog..would you leave them a comment or is that too weird?
I found a blog that belongs to a girl I haven't spoken to in 4 years. There was no fall out or anything..we just lived different lives. She has a picture up from when we hung out all the time saying she has no clue what happened to me..should I speak up or just keep quiet?
I can't say that I do this often, so I don't really know, but how do you shrink a shirt that is a bit too big?
The shirt is 100% cotton if that helps.
My roommate sleeps ALL the time. Not even kidding, she goes to bed around 12, misses her first two classes, wakes up at 11, goes to a class or two a day, comes back, sits on her computer, naps from 3-5, then goes to sleep again at 12.
I work 2 jobs (one in the morning, the other in the evening), always go to class, volunteer, and actually study.
She's called me lazy for saying I was tired before. And made sarcastic comments about "Oh you are just SOOOO busy". I love her to death as a person, but this stuff offends me. I just ignore her...but she is in the wrong in saying these things, isn't she TQC?
How do you pronounce the name "Xochitl"?
What's your favourite flower?
What kind of mythology were you into, if any (Celtic, Egyptians, Greek, etc)?
1) My boss is very very VERY computer savvy...as in used to work for some top secret department of the government. Despite this, I tend to surf the web a lot while he's out (as he is right now) Is it highly likely that he can and will check my activity on this computer even after I clear the history?
2) Before my boss left the office he asked me to go through the newspaper and "cold-call" some leads. I've done this before and I suck at it because I hate to be pushy with people. What in the world would make you want to stay on the phone with someone trying to sell you something? (it's health insurance by the way)
3) On my cigarette breaks I always see the same girl outside. She stands at minimum 20 feet away from me so that I won't talk to her. I don't necessarily have any desire to anyway, but it still irks me. Should I be offended by this?

The one I spoke about the other day! Now I don't know what to do! I need another job but I'm not very good at much, my normal field thing is acting which I love but I'm fed up of being an actress as it's so hard to get work.
What sort of job could I look to next? I'm also really rubbish at interviews so maybe if it didn't have formal interviews that would be good!!
