June 3rd, 2008
Should I make up with my ex-best friend? I'm moving away in a month or two.
When was the last time you saw live theater?
What is your favourite Queen song?
I get angry at soft food or food that doesn't have the right texture. I'm notorious for throwing puddings at the wall. It's only funny until I clean it up.
2. Green tea ice cream, jasmine tea ice cream, or hibiscus tea ice cream?
3. What is the most expensive dinner out you've ever had?
4. My best friend's brother-in-law just asked me out on a date via Facebook. Aside from the fact that I'm not looking to date anyone right now, he's also got a ton of emotional issues and is generally not my type. I know refusing him will make him pissed off and probably nasty to my friend (hence why I won't be dating someone like him). What is the best way to turn someone like this down without ~*drama*~?
are there any that do the opposite?
you know, like make you have an appetite?
Conan O'Brien or Conan the Barbarian?
(Meaning the EURO 2008.)
But when I did realize it, I had a little sentimental moment about my first time not being carded. It made me feel so "grown up" to just look natural buying wine with my groceries! LOL.
Just a year ago, I was the ONLY one carded at a table at dinner at a restaurant. That was kinda embarrassing and cringey. *cringe*
So, if the situation applies to you, do you remember your first time not getting carded for something? How old were you? What were the circumstances? Did you feel sentimental about it too?
Relatedly, how old are you and how old do people tell you that you look?
But the hair I hate most is armpit hair. I shave my armpits every other day AT LEAST, because if I don't I get irritable and pissy.
How do you feel about body hair?
Do you have any pet peeves like mine?
Oh, right, um, I don't mind hair on other people. I just don't really like it on ME. In fact, oddly, I like my men hairy. Go figure.
Do you ever not feel tired at night so you stay up but then you realize you need to go to the bathroom sometime later, and suddenly you're sleepy?
Do you think this is your body's way of keeping you up until you need to go so you don't have an accident or need to wake up to go?
It happens to me sometime, even if I just have to pee. Like I won't feel a damn thing, no urge at all to use the restroom but then once I have to go I start to feel sleepy.
If you could, what would you lucid dream about?
I tend to lean more towards reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz from either Chile or Australia.
What is a good documentary I should get?
Any other movie?
what do you look like right now?
what time is it where you are?
( Collapse )
bonus question: how old do you think i am? or, if it's a different question, how old do i look?
ps: i always think "TCQ" even though i know and type TQC. what's wrong with my brain?
What kinds of clothes do you look for?
What types of random items?
What's your favorite coffee drink? If you don't drink coffee, what's your favorite fruity drink?
If they had tags by celebrity, which celebs would you personally check first or most often?
Which celebs would have the largest names in a tag cloud format?
And I tried googling but I suck at searching apparently -- what is the firefox addon to expand livejournal comments?
1. Would you feel the need to warn them of each others' physical flaws?
2. What flaws would you consider warn-worthy?
receding hairline? completely balded head?
bad teeth, like brownish? teeth a little uneven but white?
wrinkles? acne? freckles?
severe-ish accident scars?
excessive body hair?
really tall? really short?
anything else I haven't listed?
3. Reverse situation, if someone was setting you up, what do you think might be your physical flaw that they would warn the other person about?
4. Is there a physical flaw about the other person that might be an immediate deal breaker if you were otherwise considering the date?
5. Will you forgive me for posting so much because I'm really bored and tqc is really slow tonight for some reason anyway? please don't banninate me!
Do you have a confidant?
If your friends are raising money for a walk-a-thon/head-shaving etc, do you donate to help them?
What was the last cause you donated to?
I know I am a child of the 80's because ______________ .
Have you ever made a big change in you life, only to find people don't take it seriously?
What is the book that changed you?
Which do you prefer:
a: the zoo
b: the aquarium
1) What television series would you choose to remake? (Would you only slightly tweak it, completely overhauled it or does it already have an audience?)
2) How in general do you feel about all the remakes?
Addams Family. And I can't say I'm a fan of the remake craze but all the same the creative well does seem rather dry.
2. I hate how annoying everyone gets in the warm weather. What annoys you?
Have you ever had hives?
How long did you have them?
Any tips to deal with them?
I've had them for 8 days. The spots are going away but I still have a little bit of a rash and sooo itchy. The medicine I got from the doctor isn't really working.
Alternately, have you tried the V8 Fusion drink?
What flavors were good?
2. I have diarrhea today and the bathroom is right next to my manager's office. Do I suck it up and go there, or make excuses to go outside every hour or so and run to the coffee shop down the street?
When you write your address, how do you write it? New York City, New York, or NYC? Or some other variation that I'm unaware of?
Is there a section of the Bronx that isn't in Bronx county?
Here's why I ask:
I received the invoices you faxed over. Just to let you know, going forward these will be handled by Cxxx. In the future could you please let him know you are sending them over so he can be on the lookout for them - the fax machine is in another area. Also, if it is possible to send them via email as opposed to fax, that would be great; however, it is understandable if that is not possible.
Have you or has anyone you know ever been/almost been in the Olympics?
What do you think about the Beijing Olympics? Difficulty: Summarize thoughts in one sentence, no more than 20 words.
I've been trying to get semi-fit and I've been biking, jogging with the dogs, etc... But it's hard to do anything after like 9am because it gets to around 95 degrees/100% humidity every day and I'm not about to go out in that heat. Also, a gym isn't an option at this point. So, I'm wondering if DDRing--I usually do standard 2x speed if that matters-- for around 30 minutes to an hour is a decent alternative to a 30minute bike ride or jog/walk (as far as indoor activities go)?
Elton John or Boy George?
Rosie O'Donnell or Star Jones?
The fat guy from Lost or Ed McMahon?
if you had to guess, what aren't you eating enough of?
Should I tough out the next 3 hours and risk puking on a client, or should I go home and risk evoking my boss' rath?
Edit: I managed to stick it out but now they're trying to make me stay even later to do some more filing x_x Oh well. Thanks for your help!
Edit: I just tried the maple-walnut and ohhh skippy is it good. So I'm going with that one.
My friends are planning a trip to Vegas for Thanksgiving, what hotels do you recommend? We're looking at the Mirage, MGM, Trump Towers, or Venetian right now. They're all in about the same price range so that's not really an issue. So, which one is the best? Where should we stay?
What's your favorite Guitar Hero song to play?
EDIT: What about the Bellagio?
--Thanks for all the help!!
How much did you make?
Do you wear glasses or contacts?
Will you post a picture of yourself in contacts and glasses?
2. Why do people believe you when you say some fact like the number of stars in the sky, but check when you say the paint is wet? What is something you always check for yourself?
3. Why do we smell or see something horrible and then turn to our closest pal and say "Hey, come check this out!" ?
4. If you're an atheist, pagan or some other non-christian religion and had to testify in court, would you place your hand on the bible and swear to god? Can a court force you to do so if it is not in your beliefs? Also, is the sworn statement valid if you don't believe in god?
**And no, all you TQC drama queens, this is not a christianity bashing question, it is asked with all serious as I'm not sure what I would do in that instance.
Do you miss kids shows where bad stuff happened?
I miss things like gumby where they actually dealt with death, and bad stuff happening. Like that people aren't nice ALL THE FUCKING TIME.
have you ever had a big secret that affected someone else's life? were you able to keep it?
if not, how did said person find out?
also is any one else sofa king tired of hearing about the election?
Has anyone had Lowe's do installation of big things, like windows or a roof? We're buying a house that needs some significant work, and Lowe's both has really low prices and a very attractive financing plan so we're strongly leaning in that direction but I have no idea if they do quality work.
Any experiences to share?
(Edit: Yeah, I know this needs context. It stems from various LJ and blog entries that I've read, more of a running pet peeve.)
2. For my black bear ecology class, my class and I will be in the mountains next week trying to trap a black bear. What do you think are the chances of us trapping one? (The trap is not harmful at all to the bear.) Will we get eaten?
Eta: All we will be doing is putting on a radio collar on the bear to track where its location is then we'll release it. Our teacher is a long-time wildlife biologist so he knows what he's doing.
*not inspired by actual events.
I'VE MISSED YOU TQC, WHAT HAVE I MISSED?! fill me in.
and if you don't care about how retarded i am, what are you having for lunch today?
i'm probably just going to have a bagel or a peanut butter and apple sandwich
a veterinarian who had to work on a human or a human doctor who had to work on an animal?
EDIT-I don't mean any sort of ethical or emotional issues that would arise but more just which is harder to do/work with
i think of it as two, but i use crapload as one word.
I stupidly voided out my economic stimulus check. This was so stupid on my part, but I mistook it for a check I wrote out. Is there anyway possible I can still have this cashed? I was hoping to open a bank account with it.
EDIT: HTML FAIL FTL D:
I can see it. Does this work?
Description: Cyanide & happiness comic - guy's walks in & lady is pantsless on bed, says "happy birthday to me!", then "ew, did you leave your tampon in?" *pulls* She says "that's not a tampon" *party-popper type confetti sprays out* "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"
Anything else I could post for my friend's 21st?
Thank you caaamwhore:
i mostly think it's all gone too far and everyone has been made too sensitive. it's going to help everyone die a stress related death. i think that we need to be (at least a little) politically incorrect to get shit done. cops are afraid to do what they need to do because they're afraid to be called racist. i do feel it depends on the situation though. not everyone should get away with every shitty thing they say.
Have you ever left a note around for a random person to find? What sort of thing did it say?
Have you ever found/read an anonymous (I assume) note left around for someone to find? What did it say? Did you enjoy finding it?
Why I ask: Because I was going on about wanting to do that, and then one of my friends made a forum about it. Ask me if you want the link for it. I also had fun leaving about five notes around the place yesterday!
When someone with a certain flaw mocks or points out the same flaw in another, how do you react?
Do you voice this opinion?
I'm a little late to jump on the bandwagon but I think I can finally afford one. I'm just overwhelmed by all the choices!
What do you like to eat with Saltine crackers?
do you believe this is true?
are you being forced into a monogamous life-style?
would you rather be polyamorous?
are you imposing puritanical values on anyone?
why would you do such a thing?
( Collapse )
This has been troubling me lately, so please tell me ... am i a racist?
I like to think I'm not. I mean, I believe that all people should be equal, regardless of race. I don't believe in racist stereotypes. In fact, I actively argue against them.
But I'm afraid that secretly I'm racist. You see, I have never found an Asian, black, or Mexican man attractive. I've found other minorities attractive (mediterranean, other latin, middle eastern, etc.) but never any of those three. Is this just a matter of preference or does it bely a deeper seeded racism?
French, Japanese, Italian, or Russian?
Cheez-It's or Cheese Nips?
If not, how long do you think it will take my body to stand straight naturally if I walk/sit correctly everyday?
Are you happy about this?
I'm a poor college student in dire need of money (as many college students are). I've found a potential job with my uni, but if I get hired (a likely possibility), I won't start work until July. Until then, I still desperately need money for bills and loan payments.
1. How do you guys feel about hunting down a job and then quitting after 2, maybe 3 weeks because you have a better one? A lot of hirers ask how long you can work. Naturally, a lie is necessary. What would you say?
2. When you do need to quit a job for ethically-itchy reasons (such as ditching it for another after only 2 weeks of work), what excuse would you give?
3. What was your shortest job experience ever?
2. Your current job? Love it/hate it?
3. Your worst job?
i'm fancy and so my pinky is being held higher than my other fingers and started to shake. i brought it down and it stopped, and i brought it up again and it continued to shake, the higher i hold it the more it shakes.
if you have no answer, then tell me what tastes good with a sweet potato?
EDIT: Actually, it's more like. Why be sarcastic and mean on the internet? Is it because you are hideous in real life and get made fun of and have to resort to the internet waiting for questions and making snide remarks, or simply because it amuses you. If it amuses you, don't be upset when something sucky comes around and bites you in the ass. Karma's a bitch.
My reason for making a big deal about this.. I'm bored. I have some time to kill until I go out. Kthx bitches!
Karma is a bitch, so ... her name is Karma?
...shave your head with Nair-laced shampoo....or slip Nair into your best/closest friend's shampoo?
...gain 2 extra toes on each foot...or lose a toe from each foot?
..punch Paris Hilton in the tits...or Ann Coulter in the balls?
You're naked. Would you rather go on a Slip-N-Slide with freezing water, or with scalding water?
...eat 3 lbs. of marshmellows, or drink 3 lbs. of milk?
...take a guided donkey tour down the Grand Canyon on a one-eyed donkey with no depth perception, or go bungee jumping in a suit of armor (that's a lot of extra weight)?
...run/walk 26 miles, or drive 500 miles (that's a lot of time sitting on your ass in the driver's seat)?
...make a sex tape with your SO and leave it in your parent's/parents' tape player, or make a sex tape with a complete stranger and leave it in your SO's tape player?
...have everybody think you're stupid, or everybody think that you had a sex change and were born the opposite sex?
...get a tattoo of Rachel Ray's face, 4 inches across, or get a tattoo of your SO's face, actual size?
My dog is working for my attention!
Usually i'm the one trying to get her to pay attention to me.
So, TQC, when did you last discover your power over a person/thing?
Which, if any, of the following do you think could exist?
2. In other news, I'm bringing home my adopted puppy today!!!!!!!!!
What should I name her? She is a 3 month old black lab. I already have a Spunky, Pepper and Liberty. I was thinking about naming her Andromeda or Puppy.
3. Is it totally numb to name a puppy Puppy?
If this is not just an urban myth, why would it happen? Am I wrong about my theory of drug economy? I can't come up with a better reason than malicious mischief, and while that's fun, it's a less powerful motivator than money.
Have you or anybody you personally know received pot that was laced with something, under the impression that it was just pot? (And not like, something that happened to your brother's roommate's cousin's drycleaner)
TQC, how many keyboards have you gone through in your life?
what are some of the most memorable things you have spilled/dropped on your computer?
orrrrr are you super special and have never done this?
2) What's on your mind right now?
Amanda Peet in an X-Files movie: y/n?
TQC, do you believe?
Also, who is your favorite minor character from the original Star Wars trilogy?
Can you quote him/her? ...Will you?

Anyone do anything nice for you today?
Does that make me a pig?
Ugly or Cute?
What the hell do you wear to them?
Edit: Fine. I changed the icon.
I just made some cheesecake and it smells funny. How is cheesecake supposed to smell?
I'm 31, and this is the first time I've had it. :-/
What was it?
How old were you?
Did you know that what you were saying was considered a "bad" word?
When I was in kindergarten, I said to my best friend's dad, "It's so fucking hot in here, someone open a goddamn window." I heard someone say that in a movie the night before that my parents were watching. When I explained that to my friend's dad, he told me the words "fuck" and "goddamn" were bad and that I shouldn't say them. So that was news to me.
Will you post a piece?
2) What are some college level books I could read that would teach me the basics of biology?
What about evolution?
What is your make-out preference?
What things make you worry that you might be bad luck?
I'm looking to book a hotel suite (or a bunch of rooms) for my birthday festivities. I've stayed at quite a couple places, but don't have a good enough memory to remember which one was the best... and want to find the most affordable one (if that's even possible). I love traveling, but hate the actual process of booking a flight, hotel reservations, packing and unpacking... as a result, I've never done it before. Thus,
2. Do you think I can just go to the hotel and ask to see their rooms in person? They'll do this right?
3. Do you book your hotels through a travel agent or do it on your own/ travel websites?
Thanks! Any advice/suggestions is really appreciated. I'm doing this all on my own. So I'm basically screwed. :\
Could you show me your favorite music video?
I do not remember the first time I saw a grain elevator, stood in a wheat field, opened christmas presents, played a board game or listened to The Beatles. These are things that have just always been somewhere in my life.
How about you? Are there things that you remember doing for the first time, even though others might have just grown up with them? Are there things you've grown up around, so they're totally normal for you, but maybe not for others?
EDIT-O-MATIC Do you bail when the new company is gonna pay you $150K+ a year?

How do you deal when someone cancels plans on you?
What do you think of people who do this sort of thing?
What about when it's for a good reason?
What was the last thing you really wanted to buy but wound up talking yourself out of/putting back?
What was the last necessity you purchased?
you see, i want to be a singer. in a band. like a rock star, only i realize that i'd probably just end up singing in crappy bars forever, but i'm okay with that.
i write songs, i attempt to play bass (badly) and i want to learn banjo (long story), and i can write some music.
now, the problem is, i have horrible stage fright. in high school, i ended up being in the not-so-good choirs because i froze up singing in front of only the two choir directors.
is there any hope for me, tqc? how do i get over my stage fright to go sing? i mean, i haven't even ever done karaoke!
srs and non-srs answers accepted happily!
If so, which ones?
Have you ever bought a high priced electronic on ebay? How did it turn out? Would you recommend it?
Any specific stores/sellers you recommend?
I'm short about 100 dollars to buy it in the store, but I could probably find it online for the money I have now, I just can't decide.
Tqc will you show me your boobs?
If you're sick of showing your boobs can you show me something else naughty?
Can you recommend an entry-level job that would be enjoyable? I'm currently looking for an entry-level job for the summer, and maybe for the next year or so. Tell me about your experience with this job, why you recommend it, and what you liked and disliked. Ultimately, I want to do something with copywriting and document design, but I don't have my degree or the experience yet, and I really need the cash flow. Let me know if you need more details. Thanks in advance, TQC!!!
I just f-ed up my phone because I jumped in our pool to get my baby brother because he jumped in and obviously can't swim. I took my phone to the Sprint repairs place and they said they can't do anything, and my upgrade isn't available until November. My husband is gone, and I kind of need a phone because we don't have a land line.
What would be my best option?
Where can I find really inexpensive phones? (Sprint's cheapest is about $160, I was told.)
That said, I'm unsure as to how I should organize my bedroom closet in my new apartment.
( Collapse )
and if you don't care about my problem, how is your closet organized?
Will you post a picture of it for me?
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
What type of crazy person are you? :)
A) He's the "villain" I guess. He's the most well-mannered, elegant, sophisticated etc man you could ever meet. He's outwardly perfect, irresistible and the like. But he's a prejudiced sadist. Loves knives. He has a respected, almost aristocratic public persona, while in his free time, he's helping to kidnap and torture people in a kind of war thing. As of yet he has no specific ethnicity but I'm picturing him with dark, straight hair.
B) The hero/love interest type. He's very strong and self-reliant except for the one weakness, who is the heroine, tentatively named Lily/Emelia. They all get sucked into this war and he ends up as the prized soldier of the "good" side. I want a kind of strong yet adorable type of name for him, I keep leaning towards Charlie but it might be a tad too cutesey. Oh and he has grey eyes if that helps.
So, how can I end this self-perpetuating cycle and stop hating myself? "Mantras" and such things don't work. It's not easy to psychologically trick myself. Also, if I see a therapist they make me feel lots worse, so that's out. Any tips on getting my confidence level up without outside validation?
2] Clear CD covers, or colorful ones?
3] Did you personally sell anything in grade school?
For a while in 3rd grade I got to work with the ~cool~ kids who made and sold those craft-book string bracelets. And in 8th grade I made mix CDs for people for $10.
4] What do you see in my eyes?!
should I go to the gym
or stay and surf TQC and facebook
or go jam in the music room?
it is now hailing, w/ some serious rain/ lightening!. eech!
Did you get it done with a retainer as the jewelry?
How much it all cost?
Did you tip? How much?
