I was just smacked in the face with "I don't know what is so hard for you. I mean, every single time you have put in your resume, people have called you back, or you've been hired on spot. What is holding you back?"
and I realize they are right.
What did you recently get smacked in the face with?
Was it hard for you to accept?
Was it in your face the whole time?

What are your favourite kids picture books?
I drove to Austin Friday afternoon and got there ~4:45ish, and hung out with a couple friends until 4:50am, and I just got back to Dallas about 20 minutes ago.
Should I bother going to sleep or just stay awake so I don't screw up my sleep schedule?
1.Dude, where did youtube go?
2.Do you like claymation?
seriously tho, where did youtube go?
3. I had a dream last night that Angelina Jolie bought me a bike and when I woke up and realized that her and I are not best friends I have to admit, I'm a little sad by this. What was the last dream you had and woke up sad from?
Guys, where the fuck is Amazon taking the stuff I ordered? I looked at the track packages thing, and it CAME to my city, went to the next city over, and now it's in Cincinnati.
Is this my punishment for buying physical music CDs instead of just downloading the damn music as nature intended?
For the ladies:
[or gentlemen with really long hair]
When you curl your hair, do you ever notice if one side looks like it has more curls than the other?
Does this bug you?
What pills do you take on a daily basis?
Do you hate it or love it when someone states a fact, which you know is very very wrong, and then insists they are right, and continues to argue the fact?
You know when you get to go "HA! I may have no friends, and burn when I see even a hint of the sun, due to me spending the last fourteen studying dark rooms, in a dark room, but you MADAM ARE WRONG! So suck it."
No I don't study dark rooms, in a dark room, but that would be kinda cool
I'm torn, on hand I like being able to go HA! but often when you are arguing they keep on insisting that they are right. And it's possible that they may be right and they get to go HA! And then you realise that your last fourteen years have meant nothing, and the only option left is death or cake, lots and lots of cake.
So TQC hit me up with your stories of being pwned, or of pwnage. (Is pwnage an actual word? Do people even use it seriously? I giggled while typing it.)
For those of you who use Netflix, how many discs do you get at once?
Which would you use to freeze pre-cooked roast meat in - cling film or tin foil? (No, you have no tupperware/gladware/plastic boxes to use or freezer bags.)
Do you have large freezer or only the one in your fridge? What's in your freezer right now?
Does everybody get Lane Bryant ads when they are on sites like Facebook, Snopes and IMDB, or is it just me?
Does the internet know that I am fat?! :( This has been piquing my curiosity for a while now.
If you don't see Lane Bryant ads everywhere like I do, is there a certain type of ad you always see when you go to these sites? What is it?
1: If your only breakfast options are cereal with milk that expired on April 27 and pizza that was out all night, which would you choose?
2: I live with my in-laws and last night my MIL posted two notes on the restroom mirror. One said "Please keep your towels off the floor." The other note says "Please keep your toothbrushes and shavers in your bedrooms." Her house, her rules. I completely respect that. I keep my toothbrush in the medicine cabinet (which is unfortunately too small to hold all the toothbrushes) and I keep my towel in my room. She thinks in terms of what things should be and I think in terms of what things are. At best, everyone will keep their toothbrushes in their rooms for a little while but not forever. Realistically, I think they're just going to ignore the notes. I was thinking about buying a little container to keep all the toothbrushes upright to take up less space. Do you think that sort of gesture would come across as "I'm going to try to help the situation" or "In your face. Here is a better idea that works for everyone except you."?
It's 10 o'clock on a Saturday morning. I just got pulled over by a woman cop driving a Charger. The reason? I have a rosary hanging from my rear view and I have one of those decorative license plate covers that apparently 'obstructs' where it says Michigan. We have 5 different kinds of cops in my small little city (it has the third highest ratio in the country after LA and Vegas), do they really have nothing better to do?
What's the stupidest thing you've ever been pulled over for?
who else has a paralyzing fear of rejection?
What are some excercises to flatten the stomache and sides (muffin top area)?
What's it cost to get yer wisdom teeth yanked?

Anyone have a rough idea?

so, my photoshop 7 has a problem that just occured within the past 2 or 3 days. no matter what size i put the text on, be it 1 or 1296(largest) it still appears to be microscopic, so small you wouldnt even notice it if i typed in a letter, do you know what the problem is, or how i can fix it?
I'm going to have dinner at my boyfriend's family's house for the first time tonight. What was the first time you spent any significant amount of time with your current (or past) SO's parents? What was it like? Were you nervous? Any funny/terrible/awkward stories?
What is your favorite Vonnegut book? I'm reading Breakfast of Champions right now but still like Slaughterhouse Five best, I think. Or do you not like Vonnegut? Why?
Ok TQC, the boys who live above me must have just gotten DDR or a Wii or SOMETHING cause there has been pretty much constant thumping above my living room since last night.
Soo...what method should I use to kill them?
It's my friend's birthday soon, and a few of us are trying to make a recording of us wishing her happy birthday in as many languages as we can. I've googled away, and found loads of examples, but I have no idea how to pronounce most of them. I know lots of people here speak second languages, so would anyone be able to give me phonetically spelled 'happy birthdays', in any language?
1.What is your favorite invention?
Pictures are pleasant.

I'm meeting a guy I met at a festival last saturday in a coffee shop today.
Trouble is, I don't think i'll recognise him because it was dark.
How can I deal with this slight issue?!
So does anyone here take Zyrtec? Any personal experiences or anything like that with it?
And before all you claritin lovers suggest that, I can't take it, I'm allergic to the main ingredient in it. LOL
At what weight do you start to feel 'fat', whether or not you actually are?
If you don't feel like answering that, would you rather have the ability to communicate telepathically with your pets/friends or to perform mind control on one person a day?
Do you ever dream about your teeth falling out?
I do sometimes, but I think last night in my dream I made them into a bracelet. weirdweirdweird.
1. I enrolled at the two-year college yesterday. I'm taking 12 hours of courses there. I can also take classes at the university, finish my Bachelors degree earlier than planned, and even get a scholarship for it. Thing is, I'm going to have to work while I go to college.
Should I take a class or two at the university this fall semester? Wait until spring? Wait until I get my two-year degree? Just drop out and become a crack ho?
2. I ate some mac and cheese, but I'm still hungry. What else should I eat?
As always, serious answers appreciated, non-serious anticipated, macros tolerated.
Have your parents ever disliked someone you were dating because of race?
Did you listen to them or just blow it off?
Do you think serious racism has become just stupid in this day and age?
I am craving Ikea meatballs right now. Should I go to Ikea now just for that? (It's ~10 minutes away).
What specific things have you been craving lately?
I want to pull one last prank on my dad before I leave. Something harmless. Like in the past I have put fart sounds on his computer so that they went off every time he opened or closed a program or emptied his recycle bin, etc. Something along those lines and not like the Kardashian boy prank robbing his sisters at gunpoint. I think that's taking it a little too far.
What should I do?
ETA: Where's a good place to hide a recliner?
It's one week till the end of the term, and internship-finder-guy has kept saying he'll talk to X Y and Z people about an internship for me but he hasn't. I don't *want* to sound snarky, even subtly snarky, I'm trying to politely lay out the situation so he can either get his rear in gear or confirm that it's too late and I need to look in town. But, possibly because I'm irked, I either can't write non-snarkily or I'm seeing my non-snarkiness as snarky.
So: Does this sound snarky to you?
This is the resume and cover letter I'll be dropping off at the (Other Local Paper). Obviously this same cover letter couldn't be used everywhere, but it's fairly adaptable.
I'm going to be emailing someone about an apartment here in (town), since I can only be in the dorms for another week. If you're near to getting me an internship please let me know, but I'm trying to get my situation for the summer settled.

I found a really awesome seat for Jim Gaffigan's show in September in Phoenix. I don't have the money for it now, but I will on Monday. Will my awesome seat be gone by then? :( That would be sad.
I drive a 1978 mercury grand marquis. I want to install a modern car stereo in my old ride. How would I go about doing this? Are there any online guides?
For the record, I want to do this myself. I'd rather not go to a car audio store and have it done by someone else. Any recommendations on GOOD car stereos? 'cause I haven't bought one yet either. :)
Proceed with (helpful) snark... help me pimp my ride !!!
my friends and I are going out to celebrate my 24th birthday which was yesterday, tonight. 1st my boyfriend and I are going to see Ironman then go to the bar. Typically i'm a malibu and coke girl. (shots can't be done)
What drinks should I get that for my birthday drinks?
I enrolled in two summer classes and want to enroll in another summer class for fun. I've narrowed it down to hiking the lost coast and black bear ecology and management in california. Both classes have 4-5 days field trip. I can't take both classes because that'll go well over the maximum units allowed in the summer.
If you were me, which class would you take?
What's the last creative thing you did?
Why do you suppose it is that lots of people refer to their babies, early on anyway, by both their first and middle name so much?

* 2/3 cup white sugar

So, one of my ex-husband's friends has created a new myspace account (and did a very poor job hiding his identity) and has been sending my IMs asking how I feel about girls who cheat on guys.
TQC, how should I enact my sweet revenge? Bonus points if it includes a squirrel.
ETA: I left him and found someone else after I found out about his girlfriends (yes, plural).
I turn 20 in August so I am wondering, can you please suggest:
1) What are some things I should have done by 20?
b) By 25?
Please don't suggest something that's impossible such as "build a spaceship and fly to the moon", I'm thinking along the lines of "swam in the sea", "had a snowball fight" etc... ETA: NO MORE comments relating to space travel please ppl! This r a seriouzzz Q.
ETA II: POSSIBLE things, not IMPOSSIBLE.
Do you think the US should provide the financial means for every high school graduate to go to college?
Why or why not?
I haven't had a job interview in over two years now, and Tuesday I'm interviewing for a job I really want, that would actually use my degree. I only wish I'd interviewed for crappy jobs I didn't want/was overqualified for just to get interview practice. Help!
What information are employers looking for when they ask the following questions?:
a. Tell me about yourself.
b. What do you think of your previous employer?
c. Where do you see yourself in five years?
Will you come clean my house for me?
What about helping me pack?
1. Do you have any projects/hobbies you're working on right now?
2. Have you ever tried one of those photo-a-day projects for a few months/years?
2b. If so... are you doing one now? :D I just started one and wanted to find a few people to watch and link to. Especially since mine by itself will probably be rather boring. Haha!
I'm taking two college courses this summer to prepare for the fall term. One of them meets on Tuesday and Thursday and each session lasts almost three hours. The other meets Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and lasts and hour and fifteen minutes. I have the option of changing the second class to a Tuesday and Thursday class. I'm looking to get a job this summer. Would changing my schedule increase my chances of getting a job, or is sitting through two classes at three hours each too excruciating to bother with?
Do the Rastas in Washington Square park sell anything other than weed? Do they sell mushrooms?

me: elementary ed major. 3 semesters till graduation.
my primary job: teaching piano. 3 yrs experience. several of my kids have exceptionalities (ADHD, gifted, LD, autism and Soto's syndrome, which is a genetic condition - learning implications are mainly ADD and LD). i have also worked with special needs students on the college level.
the situation: i don't want to take on any more days teaching piano this summer, because i teach across town. and gas is expensive. there's a daycare/summer day camp near my college that has 'help wanted' on their bulletin board outside, and i'm thinking about updating my resume and inquiring.
1) when i google the company's name, it comes up on careerbuilder saying they're looking for full time positions. i could do something like a tuesday and wednesday full day, and the rest of the week i'm teaching piano. would they even consider me since i couldn't do full time?
2) i'm an ed major - i'm guessing i'm qualified for this but am i really? do i have to be certified in anything to work in childcare?
3) have you worked in childcare? plz to be sharing advice?
My husband and I both have our hearts set on getting a cocker spaniel puppy... this is something we've been talking/daydreaming about for over a year now, and we've just been waiting until we live in a house and have a nice-sized backyard for a puppy to play in. We'll be closing on a home in June and so it's about time for our all of our daydreaming about this puppy to finally come to fruition... but the problem we're running into now is that we have no idea where to find such a puppy.
TQC, where should I look to try to find a cocker spaniel puppy?
I check petfinder.com every so often, but I rarely find anything that is within a reasonable distance of where we live. Somebody told me that craigslist was a surefire place to find all sorts of puppies, but when I looked today all I found were ads from people who are looking for puppies, not people who are selling them/giving them away. I also check the website of our local human society with about the same frequency as I check petfinder.com... with the same results.
So, is there some secret place where people find puppies? Something I am unaware of? Neither my husband nor I have ever owned a dog, but his grandfather had a cocker spaniel that meant a lot to my husband, which is why his heart (and now mine) is set on this specific breed. Don't bother mentioning that we shouldn't go to a pet store - as far as I'm aware, they don't even exist in my area... I've never heard of one around here in my life, so it really isn't even an option to begin with.
ETA: I live in Michigan (Grand Rapids, to be specific), so if anybody happens to be from around here and has good tips as to specific places, it would be very much appreciated!
*also* ETA: It doesn't necessarily need to be a purebred cocker spaniel, so long as it is partly/mostly cocker spaniel/resembles a cocker spaniel.

You guys know that icon that is a picture of girl's mouth with a gun in it? She has a black bob, I think. I can't find the icon itself but the image it was made from was from this photography site. From what I remember it's mostly a bunch of deadish girls with blood everywhere. Lots of bloody wounds and stuff.
Do you know what I'm talking about? Does anyone have a link to the website?
edit - not REAL dead girls, posed
OK, here's the story. I'm getting married June 29 and since we're both on a budget, I've decided to use my late mom's wedding ring (circa 1940)as my ring so my dearly beloved does not have to shell out the bucks right now. Down the road, when we can afford it, I'll have my mom's ring designed into something a little more modern, no biggie.
But here's the thing: My engagement ring is gorgeous but it's an irregular shape. That is, it's kinda zig-zaggy. What this means is that the wedding band, which is circular, will not lie flush against it. I have no problem just wearing the engagement band by itself, even after I am married. Soooo, my question is, do folks do this? Are there people out there who chose to wear just one ring instead of two, whether it be just the wedding ring or the engagement ring?
1. I'm making mashed cauliflower. Do you think it would work well with a potato ricer or is this a terrible idea?
2. In some community someone posted a link to a website that sold clove cigarette perfume. I cannot find the website. Does anyone happen to know what it is? I do not remember much about it other than that they made all of their own scents, and that if you lived near their factory (which I think was in Colorado but I'm not sure) you could go pick up your order instead of having it shipped.

Ok... so i was having a romp with my boyfriend, and he was hanging on pretty tight to my, um, backside...
And when I went to take a shower later, I found that there was a thumbprint-sized dent in the soft tissue there. Three days later, it shows no signs of going away.
Has ANYONE had this happen before?
And if this totally makes you O_o, do you have a spirit animal? An animal that you feel very close to, or are terrified of?

Which would you pick if you had to: Your parents doing something horrible to you, or you doing something that made one of your parents miserable, making you feel horribly guilty?
To any of you college-goers who are also headed to graduate schools...
Are you going to (or did you) take time off between undergrad and applying? Did it make those last few years more bearable? Did you have trouble motivating yourself to go back?
I really think I want to take a year off before heading to PA school, but I'm also paranoid that I'll just get lazy and forget everything I need to know in that time. :P
TQC, I'm going to NYC on the 15th. What should I do? Preferably something that won't break the bank. :)
Also, about how much would contacts run? My prescription is very, very minimal, and my glasses are just driving me INSANE.
Can you recommend a good west-coast 4 year college/university for a psych major?
Should I get more piercings? (Currently have 3)
If so, where?
Edit: How are there no q-tips in my house?!
1) Will you give me the recipe for something delicious? Bonus points if it's fairly easy to make.
2) Will you ask me a question?
I accidentally washed my clothes in hot water? will they be okay?
If you could research anything in depth and perform an experiment (or have a team perform it), disregarding time restraints and lack of worth ethic, what would it be?
GUYS: are you a grower or a shower?
GIRLS: would you prefer your guy to be a grower or a shower?
DEFENITIONZ LOL: a grower is someone who's penis is proportionally MUCH smaller flaccid than when erect. a shower is someone who's penis remains about the same size, and tend to look bigger whilst flaccid.
i personally am a grower. if i was into cock, i'd probably want a guy who was a grower, if only for the lulz.
To the college students in TQC:
Do you have internships lined up for the summer? If so, where?
Also, I've just finished up my junior year and I have a few potential internships open to me. However, I'm uncertain if I really want to pursue a career in the fields of the internships I was awarded. Should I take one anyone to build my resume? I don't really have any "legit" experiences to put on my resume at the moment so I'm kind of worried about starting the job hunt next year.
1- are you now or were you ever a dancer or choreographer?
2- what is your perception of a choreographer's work?
3- what stereotype do you think society would give to choreographers in general?
4- how would you say are choreographers valued by society?
(hi. since i am 100% sure that one of you is going to say something like "why did you just type out your homework questions for us to answer? you should answer them yourself," i would like to clarify that these questions are for an article i am writing about people's perceptions of a choreographer's field of work. i am looking for YOUR opinions. i am not trying to steal them from you and pass them off as my own. i need YOURS. thank you to all who help me.)

Favorite unexpectedly dirty song?
Is there a term for a straight girl who uses gay guy friends as substitutes for boyfriends? Besides "fag hag"?
If you are a person with a fairly healthy appetite (normally), what do you think or contribute a sudden lack of appetite to?
If you often have no appetite, when you make yourself eat do you feel sick to your stomach afterwards?
I'm a person with a healthy love for food, but lately I haven't wanted to eat at all. I can go all day without food, and when I make myself eat I feel sick afterwards. Yesterday (trust me I don't normally track my calories) I had 660 calories and today no more than 400 (I just made myself eat a few bites of green beans and mashed potatoes). TQC, am I dying? D:
Everyone else: How have you been?
What movie should I rent tonight?
TQC, what do you think about the name Pleasure to Burn for my band?
Do you think that sounds like some kind of biker band, or classic rock or something?
What other band names can you come up with?
I ask because today my drummer and bassist, without even talking to me about it first, decided they would change the name of our band (which was pretty gay) to Pleasure to Burn, which my bassist got from a pack of my Camel cigarettes.
Do you think, even though they are the founding members of the band and I came in later, that they should have at least told me before they advertised us by this name in a local music magazine?
Guh, I'm peeved. And I just woke up.
What's the ideal penis size?
What's the ideal brain size?
Do you list any entries on your profile that are completely unique (they don't link to anything/nobody else on LJ shares that interest)? If so, what is it/are they?
For me, it's "Polish pool"
Are there any interests you list on your profile that you are surprised to see are not unique? Something you thought nobody else on LJ knew about/was interested in? If so, what is it/are they?
For me, it's "Rock Lake Christian Assembly", this really tiny church camp I went to growing up.
What is your father's first name?
What's the most disgusting thing you've heard of someone eating recently?
Why is it so hard to find a white bikini top?
Where do you think I might find one?
I've tried aeropostale, american eagle, urban outfitters, khols, macy's, walmart, kmart, target and probably others I can't think of. I just want the top only and I'd prefer it not to be terry cloth (that ruled out american outfitters).
