What about romantic comedies in general?
Since I go to a school that's very close with VT, there was a short vigil held for anyone who wanted to attend, including a couple speakers (students and faculty), a moment of silence, candles, and other things.
I HATED this class, learned nothing, thought this teacher was a pretentious ass who couldn't teach. How much of this should I let through when I'm supposedly being encouraged to be honest? I think she likes me, because she gave me an A- on a research paper when it was utter shit.
I am moving from Pittsburgh, PA to Tucson, AZ within a year. I'm beginning research into the area/looking at what apartments are like, and I have a few questions if anyone would like to help me out.
Is evap cooling as effective as central air conditioning? Is one superior to the other in terms of beating desert heat?
I currently have a pewter car which has black leather interior. I should sell it because it will be unbearable in AZ, y/y?
Have you ever played any of the games from the now defunct Romp.com?
It had games/episodes you could download, mostly involving some dude named Jake trying to have sex with various females, it was kind of like a choose your own adventure book. There was also a game/episode on there called Sex in the Inner City.
-I'm working on 3 days in a row, I couldn't find my clean laundry. I just found it, so yay!
What would you think if another friend of yours, who also dislikes this person, put the pieces together and emailed the company with the full name of said disliked person and a link to the blog in an attempt to get said person disciplined/fired?
Fair game since it's freely available on the net or over the line?
Me? I'm creeped the fuck out.
Have you ever had to help hire someone for your work or attend the interviews and give feedback?
Would you feel comfortable being a key player in an evaluation for a contract renewal review of someone you work with? Why or why not?
Cute, offensive, silly; anything you got.
What's the last challenge you overcame?
If your life HAD TO be a reality show, what would it be like?
I'd have to go the book I just finished, Blood Meridian.
is that how it is for everyone? am i just weird?
Do you have your own bedroom, den, or study, a room that's entirely your own and not shared?
I live in a two-bedroom apartment with my boyfriend, and I keep one of the bedrooms for myself. I don't sleep there (I sleep in 'our bedroom') but it's where I store all my clothes and trinkets and things like that. My boyfriend seems a little hurt sometimes, that I need a private space. I'm wondering if it's strange for me to need one.
Also, approximately how many jobs have you had in your lifetime (full time, part time, permanent, temporary, seasonal, etc.)? I'm approaching triple digits myself.
What is the last pleasant surprise you got?
I am. :/
( Collapse )
How many times would you say you've done that?
When and who is the last person you kissed? (And if you have an s/o--before you were dating them)
I heard it was 17.
Without parental consent.
If you're calling in sick from something embarrassing (cramps, diarrhea, etc), do you call in sick and explain what's wrong or do you just say that you're not feeling well?
Ladies, are you period shy?
I always just say "I'm not feeling well."
Yes, I'm period shy. Obviously I get it but I don't like people knowing when. =(
About a minute into it, she hangs up. WTF?
Who was calling me?
What do they want?
Edit: Nevermind, I think I figured it out. So, how life's today?
What's the strangest and/or stupidest question you've been asked in an interview
Will you share any memorable job interview stories with us? They can be amusing or something stupid happened/was said. It can be caused by the person being interviewed or the person giving the interview. Anything :)
EDIT Also, in both cases, what job were you interviewing for?
2. I also think that the Bill Clinton thing was a witch-hunt and America was stupid for falling for it. Hello, like you wouldn't deny letting the office intern give you blow jobs. It says nothing about your ability to hold an office.
Being unable to speak a proper sentence, however, should have cast some doubt upon a certain OTHER president's ability to be president, but I guess America is just not that picky?
3. How do you feel about these two issues?
That's how I'd go about it.
Course, that could just be me.
How would you go about making a baby?
my husband wants to take our daughter to "a park with baby animals".
anyone have any ideas of something like this. i have already mentioned zoos to him and aquariums.
any family outdoorsy ideas welcome.
What book is next on your list to read?
What have you eaten today?
What completely inoffensive and harmless things annoy you?
Would you go out on a date with Gene Simmons if there was absolutely NO sex involved (unless you want to have sex with him, of course)?
2. Do you still read newspaper comics? Got a favorite? One you wish would DIAF? (I still love Get Fuzzy. I hate, hate, hate Family Circus. That movie was right.)
What are tabs do you always have open?
If you're really angry with someone you care about, how do you deal with it? Do you feel the need to make them pay, or do you just withdraw from them, or what?
she likes to read and she has a computer, she also knits? or crochets.. or something but i have no idea where to get those!
any genenal ideas would be good!
When do you put your winter clothes away for the spring/summer?
Where do you live?
2. How should I remove the maple syrup from Lappy 3000? I was being reckless with my hotcakes this morning.
3. If you had *daha*'s phone number, would you prank call him?!
HOURS. 7+ at one point. You know, those long insane soul-bearing conversations. They spent at least 5 hours on the phone every night for 4 days in a row. They seemed perfect for each other.
So after about three weeks of this they decided to meet, as he lived only about 50 minutes away from her.
They were just going to hang out or whatever. The day before they were meant to hang out he sent her an email that read something like "Hi Kay, I'm really sorry but it's just not going to work out. Goodbye." and stops answering her calls.
What's your bet on this situation?
I'm betting he was actually married or something.
*note- they had exchanged pics early on, so it wasn't about looks....
Question for the Y&R diehards - how long have you been watching Y&R?
I started in September or October of 2007.
My supervisor sent me an email asking for a meeting at 2:30 to "discuss some things"
What's gonna happen?
2. What was the last cause you donated to?
3. Any plans for the weekend?
4. Can you show me a picture of you wearing a hat?
Who do you think your favorite people on that show will be?
Who do you hate already?
If I can email him the work I have today, does that mean I got it in on time, even if he doesn't check his email until later?
I'm worried - This has been the worst semester ever. :<
For those who don't care:
Do you like pop rocks?
What's your favorite kind of soda?
What's a band you used to like but have since turned your back on?
When I signed up in February or something they never asked for a credit card number or anything that would force me to pay them if I didn't do it voluntarily. I got my first bill for $150 (including the price of a router plus all the BS charges they make me pay), and I can't pay it. I have the money, but every time I call them to try to pay it, something happens and it doesn't work. So far I have wasted 27 cell phone minutes and lots of phone calls trying to GIVE THEM MONEY. It has not worked. Clearly they don't want it very bad, otherwise their payment system wouldn't be so flawed.
What would you do in this situation?
It was about elevators.
(Stay with me.)
It included this story.
Are you scared of elevators?
Would you freak out if you were stuck in one, by yourself, for a long time?
If you have them, can anyone tell they're Crocs when you're wearing them?
If you bought them in an actual store (NOT online) where did you get them? I've checked all of the places around here than carry Crocs (except Journeys, because the people who work there are always rude) and I can't find them.
Why do I always get a burning pain in my lower back and a sinking feeling in my tummy during "that time of the month"?
In case you can't answer that.. I have a lot of green apples in my fridge..what should i make with them?
Recently, I witnessed a large gathering of people singing "I love Rock N Roll" acapella. Irony much?
I HAVE to buy some new clothes, and I have a couple of gift cards to Macy's...what should I buy?
I don't wanna go. I hate this shit. But I look like a weirdass hipster who has the fashion ALL WRONG and has holes in her skirts.
I arrive at Oslo (Torp) at 330 on the Saturday and I fly home the next day at 1230. Is there much point going? I didn't realise I got so little time in Oslo, I thought I had more. Its not a big deal if I can't go as I'm not losing much but I would like to see a wee bit of Oslo.
Also, anything you can suggest I see/do in Oslo? I'm going myself so I'm pretty free. I love historical stuff and architecture. I'll try anything once.
• Will there be pony rides and dancing bears?
• Will there even be a band?
• Will there be snacks??
• I put bag balm/udder cream all over my body because they sell it at CVS and I used to use this different brand that smelled great, and this kind has this weird stinky crayon-y smell and I just feel like a huge tit. Without showering again, what can I do to stop feeling like a smelly oily breast? I tried putting some perfume on but now I also smell like a dirty incense-burning hippie.
I AM SORRY FOR THE MENTAL IMAGE
If you feel they are ok, did you know people that it was ever something considered tacky? Do you think that is just a regional thing?
Forgot to ask, what about khaki shorts or other shorts made from different materials? Are any acceptable? What about blue jean skirts?
Also, what other stlyes/types of clothing is considered tacky where you live? Not something like 70's style, but an actual article of clothing or accessory? does that make sense?
Just realized how different people feel on this issue and was wondering how far spread the feeling was.
What candy do you miss?
If you have any sort of artistic talent do you tell people about it or keep it to yourself? Why?
What is your favorite TV show?
Diet pepsi, diet anything in general. I can't understand why anyone orders that shit. To me it's like switching from 'regular' cigarettes to light cigarettes and claiming that suddenly you're making healthy choices. If soda pop is bad, then stop fucking drinking it altogether.
Additionally, if you can't give up soda pop, why not just drink the original? I'd rather drink regular natural sugar than whatever that aspartame bullshit is exactly. Drinking a lot of sugar is bad for you, obviously, but it seems like a better choice than drinking some artificial man made sugar substitute. Fuck that shit.
While on the subject of random oddball shit that pisses you off, cellphones. But.. Part of what makes me shake my head about cellphones is that, you see the 'manliest of men' strutting around.. then you look down at their hip and see a cellphone attached. Gah. Cut that shit out, is it that damn necessary to have your cellphone literally attached to you? Give it up man, leave it in your truck.
And of course the ear piece attachment thingiemabob just worsens things. I hate that we're now literally attached to our damn electronic devices.
He's a homeless man from my hometown and he's been missing for quite awhile. It's been suspected that he may have gone to another big city, but the police haven't had any luck tracking him down. Everybody just wants to know he's ok. He's usually seen pushing a shopping cart piled high with bags and with the brooms sticking out like in the picture. His name is Bill Dunn, but people mostly know him as "Aqualung".
More info on him here.
ETA 2nd pic.
I just found out through some friends I work with that my
best friend soon to be old best friend was talking a lot of shit to our fellow colleagues. She said some pretty hurtful stuff not only about me, but about my mom. My mom and I are very close.
My question to you, TQC, is what should I do? Confront her? Give her a beat down? (Kidding) Although, I'm not going to lie, I would like to punch her in her face.
Also: She is marrying my brother next May; so unfortunately, I’ll still have to see her every now and then.
What is something you've done in the past week that just wasn't very nice?
I know this is a long shot, but my monitor on my pc just freaked out and i have no idea what could be wrong. Normally i'd run off and try and fix it myself but i've just had wisdom teeth out and am so drugged up i have no idea what i'm doing. If anyone's a bit of a computer expert i'd really appreciate the help.

2. Which sex do you think has it easier in our culture? Ever wished you were of the opposite sex?

Do you have any fetishes? Sexual or not? What are they?
ETA: Ok, got it.
A new question: I changed my layout and now when I leave a comment, the font in the box is tiny, and I can't figure out how to make it bigger. I checked the customization page and changed font sizes, but nothing will change the font size in the comment box. How do I change it?
Also, where would you recommend we go for a holiday in June? Anywhere in Europe EXCEPT SPAIN.
What do you wish you didn't know?
How do you make a regular grilled cheese sandwich?
If you were going to enter this contest, what would your entry be for each of the following categories?
Spoons: Any kind of bread, any kind of cheese (or cheeses), and any kind of butter.
The Kama Sutra: Any kind of bread, any kind of butter, and any kind of cheese PLUS additional ingredients(the interior ingredients must be at least 60% cheese).
The Honey Pot: Any kind of bread, any kind of butter, and any kind of cheese (the interior ingredients of the sammich must be at least 60% cheese), and with an overall flavor that is sweet and would best be served as dessert.

My ringtone - "So This Is Love?" by Van Halen.

What if it's a complete stranger?
To those who are/have been pregnant..
Did you appreciate these kinds of things when you were pregnant? or were you like.. GTFO now!
You're dating someone new. You guys get along really well, and you find this person attractive. On the third/fourth date, he/she invites you upstairs. You start fooling around, when your date says "I have something to show you. I didn't tell you about this before, because I wasn't sure how you'd take it, but you're going to find out." He/she then unbuttons the pants, lets them drop, and their left leg is entirely missing. In its place, is a rough prosthetic leg., which extends all the way up to the hip. Do you proceed with the fooling around?
So you're carrying on some more, when your date then says, "I gotta stop this again, for there's something else you should know", then then removes the shirt and their left arm is entirely missing as well. Replaced by a believable prosthetic that's entirely the wrong skin color. The prosthetic goes up to the shoulder and it can't really do much more than hold things that are placed within the fake hand. It's amazing you never noticed this before. Do you continue fooling around?
You're making out some more, when your date then says "I have yet another declaration to make, because you might as well know this now. See this hair?" You see it, and watch as your date peels it off. It's a glued-on wig. Your date is entirely bald. Something about being in a fire when they were little caused the damage to the scalp, arm and leg. Will you continue making out?
Finally, you two are getting pretty far, when your date says "One last thing. Since we're being so vulnerable and honest, I have one last thing to share. See my eye?" You see it. He/she then smacks the side of their head and the eyeball pops out. It's glass. An empty socket is left. Can you finish?
Since most of you here are females, is this a game that you'd like to try?
i invited him back for lunch today, and he came to see me.
it went really well.
now, tell me why do i feel like crying about it all?
If you moved into their house (one they had already established as theirs) was there an adjustment period before you felt it was yours too? If so, how long did that take?
How old are you?
i love Foxytunes, which links you to a page of whatever artist you're listening to at the time. the page usually has lyrics, links to their official site, and youtube videos.
LJLogin tells you which livejournal account you're logged into and lets you switch between them without having to retype your password. very handy!
i also have a Dictionary Lookup Extension, which saves a lot of time. you highlight a word on a page and right click to read the definition.
oh and my favourite is Clippings which helps you to save frequently entered text for pasting later. some of my frequently pasted text is my email address, html codes for images and stuff, etc.
I had a job interview 2 weeks ago with the HR manager. Last week (Monday) I had an interview with the Manager, who seemed to like me and told me the HR Manager would get back to me soon with a decision.
After not hearing anything, I called the HR director about the position, no response. Then I emailed him, because that was our contact for the position.. He emailed me back saying "I'll get back to you in the next few days" .. It's been 3 days and nothing..
Am I too anxious to hear back, or should I just move on and accept I'm not getting the job?
If you owned a titty bar, what would you call it?

I assumed it was "sexually transmitted infections (STIs)" also, but my teacher was skimming my paper and pointed it out and looked and me and said, "no." When I asked for further clarification he told me to figure it out.
I just discovered theysaid and I'm kind of addicted.
2. Do you like fruit smoothies? If not, WHY NOT?!?!
Would you ever date someone who you considered your best friend? Why or why not?

So TQC, what do you suppose they did with it? Suppose they're trying to find out who really put it there?
1. Ladies, if you've had one of these, how long did it take for the sucky-sick-sore feeling to GO AWAY?
2. Everyone: what's your favorite non-prescription painkiller? (Serious answers appreciated, non-serious anticipated.)

new question: who was your favorite character in No Country for Old Men?
I've download three free ring tones from the current promotion and since I was bored I thought I'd ask you all about my favourite fizzy drink.
Do you Like Dr Pepper
Have you downloaded a ring tone from the recent promotion?
Do you think it's rude not to?
( Collapse )
Would I be wasting my time with that stuff?
Are there any brands of dye that work decently and are easy to find that you would reccomend?
Do any of you have information or linkage about a low to no interest loan for health care procedures?
It's also called a Health Care Credit.
Any information would be wonderful. Thank you in advance.
How long did you stay there?
How was your experiences (the good and the bad)?
Would you recommend it?
How was re-adjusting back to your home country like?
Do you think it helped you in any way in your present or future goals/careers/etc?
What songs/artist/DJ would you put on your gym sound track to keep you motivated and moving?
Also, since that was a lame question no one's going to be able to answer: can I keep my lucky bamboo on my desk or will it die if it doesn't get as much sunshine as it does in the window sill?
I think the mailman saw it.
I was homeschooled from grades 4-10, and it was pretty sweet. The only downside was that I sort of fell behind on social skills, and have yet to fully recover. I'm pretty sure that was my own fault though, since my brother and sister never really seemed to miss a beat. I've never actually met any really crazy homeschoolers, but I DID heard about this one family that did all kinds of wacky stuff, like having fourteen-year-old boys sleep in their parents' beds. I haven't actually run into any prejudice either, but the aforementioned siblings swear it's all over the place.
What defines that, for you?
Who do you consider a TQC regular?
What do you think would be a good name for a website about positive things happening in the world?
You know those Jung personality types, like ENFJ, do any of you know a (free) friendship compatibility site about that? Not 'ENFJs go best with these two personality types as friends/partners' but you type in two types and it tells you about that friendship, potential problems and things to think about, etc.
