What would you not want in a house, aside from obvious construction flaws/bug infestations/etc.?
What would be some nice bonuses you'd like to see in a house? (hardwood floors, brick exterior, etc.)
Would you rather live in the best house in an okay neighborhood or the worst house in a nice neighborhood?
(I found it through the random journal link. Plz to not be trolling it, mostly because I don't want her to stop posting.)
Do you rent your place of occupancy? How many bedrooms/bathrooms and whats the rent cost?
2. What about the last thing you splurged on for another person?
3. Based on the short situation behind the cut, what should I tip my tattoo artist?

EDIT: I'm quite well at the moment, though on Friday I was pretty sick, with a fever of 102.
How do I get it out?!
You spill a considerable amount of red wine, all over a dark blue couch.
Would you attempt to get it out?
With a huge stain is it even possible?
And who is your tqc best friend?
I don't know where it went. I sprayed raid everywhere it could be hiding, but no sign of him.
Will he die, even though it wasn't sprayed on him?
Is he going to fly on my face again in the middle of the night?
IS HE LIKE, IN LOVE WITH ME OR SOMETHING? LIKE, WHY CAN'T HE RESPECT A GIRLS PRIVACY, SERIOUSLY?
Do you think it's a robotic roach with a spycam that my landlord's son maneuvered into my room to look at me in my panties or some shit?
Right now it's labeled as 'track 12', but I want it's correct name!! I know it was semi-popular, played on the radio and in the clubs... WHATS IT CALLLLEEEEDDDD.
What is THAT, TQC?
My last name means VALLEY when directly translated from Finnish to English.
Does yours mean anything and if it does, do share?
2. what are you hearing right now?
3. what was the last thing you ate? drank?
4. what was the topic of the last paper you wrote?
5. have you ever done someone's homework for them?

a.What crime landed you there?
b.What is your last meal going to be?
c.What method of execution is going to be used on you?
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FLY?!?!
SO... what kinds of things should I do to encourage her swift emigration?
I also need a soundtrack for said effort. So far the only track I have is "Move, Bitch." Nothing else seems quite as appropriate. Suggestions?

1. What was your favorite job?
2. Do you still work there?
3. If no to q#2, then why not?
4. Do you listen to talk radio?
is he going to wake up or should i give up and go make a bowl of cereal?
Would you ever want to drive those roads?
What do you want to be doing in 2 years?
Will you tell me stories of bravery? It doesn't matter if you've witnessed them IRL or saw it on a TV show or movie or whatever.
ETA: Quotes are OK too.
1. What do you feel like?
2. If you could only listen to one c.d for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
3. Do you like to eat shrimp? If so, how to you like them cooked?
I want to grill shrimp today.
Whenever I dream about people or places I've known IRL, they tend to be about 7 years out of date for some reason - the friends I had then, the school I attended, the job I had.
Shortly after I was given a warning about the 'quality' of my work (based largely on the fact that changes in procedure occur nearly weekly), I was given a dollar and a half raise. So from one day to the next I never know if I'm in a good standing or not.
I'm not particularly happy or attached to my job. I started as a temp in August of last year and my offcial hire date was Nov. 1st 2007. Frankly I rather hate my job. It's absolutely boring and frequently frustrating.
On the plus side I was also given a company vehicle (2002 Honda Accord, nice car) and whatever gas I need. I can also drive the car in town for personal use, which is a big bonus considering the economic times.
If you got a raise at a job that you disliked or felt uncomfortable at, would you still look for a new job? How long would you stick it out.

1. Do you like, or dislike honey? Why?
2. What kinds have you tried?
For those that do like it:
3. What kind(s) do you like best?
4. What do you like your honey on/in?
1. Yes, big fan now, but I hated it when I was a kid strangely. I guess my palate has changed, I tried a variety I just didn't like, or I tried too much of it in one go.
2. A fairly weak, dark, unset variety, and a strong, dark unset variety by the name of "Strong Woodland Honey" (from pine forests, I think?).
3. The strong woodland honey is amazing :)
4. On multigrain toast with butter, and in cooking.
5. Yum ;)
this comes to my question... do you have any recommendations for books/poems/plays/songs/anything relating to this unit that you like? any advice on the best way of understanding/learning about the first world war?!
and... what are you eating for dinner?
Why the hell didn't they do this shit on the grossly hot days when I was in school?
This might ruffle a few feathers, as I'm associating some behaviors with good or bad people -- it's just hard to do a "survey" without categorising somehow. Feel free to skip all the questions and explain why they don't fit in your case :)
1. Do you consider yourself good to others, or bad to others?
2. Do other people tend to like you, or dislike you?
3. Do you think people have generally treated you well, or badly?
4. In terms of self-image, do you consider yourself "good" or "bad"?
5. Which of the first three questions contributes most to your self-image?
6. How "bad" are you capable of being, assuming you had NO reason not to be? Could you hurt? Kill? Massacre? Become a druglord? Arms dealer? Lie in court?
7. How bad have you been? If you changed, why did you change?
8. How good are you capable of being, assuming you had NO reason not to be? Could you let homeless people sleep in your house? Forgive a killer? Give all your money to charity? Devote your life to helping out in africa?
9. How good have you been? If you changed, why did you change?
10. Obligatory simpsons question: Is it right that I should buy a Chrysler?
I am reading it now and can't put it down. I love it.
I only see my boyfriend for about one week a month, things get in the way like the fact we live in different cities, work, school etc..
It seems every time I see him I'm on my period, which is incredibly frustrating. Bless him, he doesn't get grossed out but it means there are certain activities that I miss out on..
Do you/have you ever had an awful boss? or hated someone you had to work with?
I do, mine has just emplyed her daughter (not allowed under comany policy) and has cut down mine & another employees shifts so her incompetant daughter can work more. I'm guessing it's only because she still lives with her mum and has to pay rent.
Should I retake it in the fall semester, or wait awhile?
*Edit* The only opening for the class on-campus is a night class. I have a morning class on the same days. Also, the teacher is kind of a jerk, so I'm not sure I'd want to sit in a class with him.
Should I take it online again, or on-campus?

What is the last thing that turned you on?
Any help appreciated.
Do you like riddles? Do you have a favorite? (Please share if you do.) Are you good at riddles?
I love riddles. I don't have a particular favorite. I'm not all that good at riddles. I have to take one and let it sit in my head for a day or so before I can actually come up with an answer. They're not always right, either.
How was your weekend?
Did anything good happen? Anything bad? Anything strange?
Are you expecting to have an eventful week? What will you be doing this week?
What's for lunch?
Anybody taking a summer course?
ETA: Goddammit. Mine isn't. My bill is paid. I guess it's just a local thing.
Have you ever used the Name Your Own Price thing on Priceline.com? Basically, you name your own price on how much you want to spend on airline tickets and you get them for that price. The catch is that they don't tell you what your flight times are until you pay for your tickets. You could be departing any time from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm. I typed in $10 per ticket (for 5 people) and with the fees and everything the total cost was $250. Is this too good to be true?
Edit: Assume, by perfect, I do mean with opinions, standards, a personality, preferences, etc-- maybe even "the perfect flaws." (whatever flaws compliment your strong points or something like that) But, unnaturally perfect in the sense that wherever/however he/she is made, it is artificial and specifically intended for you.
I have an appointment today, and I wonder if its polite or skanky to groom the nether region.

In retrospect, I suck at formulating questions, sorry
I remember thinking that 20 sounded absolutely grown up. Now I realize that is not necessarily the case.
....so... my question is... is there like, an equivalent program similar to it? if so, i would appreciate any help you can give me.
Thanks in advance ^_^
he is still sleeping! it's 2 pm.
how should i punish him for making me wake up at 7:30 to go to breakfast with him, when his ass can't even wake up? non-srs answers preferred.
What tricks should I teach my dog?
She already knows high five, jump, and down low (low five) along with the typical dog commands (sit, stay, lay, up, and we're working on speak but she's not much of a barker so it's harder). I tried teaching her "up high, down low, too slow" but she got too smart and refused to offer a high five after "down low" because she knew we'd take it away.
Did your teacher/s try and get you to stop by telling you that you'd be cooler by sitting still than by using the energy it takes to fan yourself with it, or was that just me?
Do you think there's any truth to that, or were they just trying stop kids from doing it for other reasons-what is that reason?
Yes they did, I'd like to think it wasn't just me/my school where teachers protested...not all of them mind you, it wasn't as if it was a school rule that you couldn't make a fan to cool yourself with but there were definitely one or two teachers that tried to make it stop. I don't really think there's much truth. Having spent 14 years in Southern CA I like to think I heat fairly well and various ways to deal with it. Not being really active is definitely a good idea but I do not believe that the slow motion most people make to fan themselves raises the body temperature that much, and the breeze it created was generally worth it. Staying still does not always work when it's hot your body is going to feel that temperature. I don't know WHY they didn't like it-maybe they just got annoyed with the steady movement.
How bad was it?
(I got pretty badly sunburnt about a week and a half ago and my legs just started peeling now---ew)
Do you feel differently if they ask for references from specific kinds of people, or people you've known a certain amount of time, say?
Personally, I think it's really dumb and awkward. I've had lots of friends and employers I got on well with, but most of them are people I've lost contact with now, because they've moved or their companies have closed down, or something like that. Most of the people I've seen providing references have obtained them from relations with dissimilar names.
And... do you have any particularly good strategies for getting references from people you haven't spoken to in years? :)
In other news, what good books have you read lately?
ETA: Why the heck are all the daytime shows so dramatic and lame?
be unable to stop vomitting for a full 24 hours once you started?
edit: these are both lifelong ailments. Any time you throw up, it's for 24 hours. Any time you have to pee, you only have 3 seconds to get your pants down.
So tell me, ladies of TQC, (and gentlemen, for that matter, I don't care), are you in that <1%?
2.) Gmail chat being a bitch for anyone else today?
3.) On a scale of 1-10, how much does it bother you when someone says something like "I got my hair did"?
1.) Yeah, I admit it, I am. I started early 4 or 5, and had no reason to believe that wasn't "normal" until I read it in that book...
2.) It's been acting up for me all morning.
3.) 10...I want to punch them.
I need new music!
Are you bloated?
Do you think you're a grown-up? How old are you?

You find a door that leads to a fantasy world. The very landscape of this place is so beyond your understanding that it is in constant flux, as far as you can tell, shifting and changing to the point that you end up with motion sickness and throw up something that was once your lunch, but turned into a bunch of flowers, then into a frog and hopped away before growing wings and ceased bumping its ass on lily pads.
As you make your way through the world, you are then approached by a well-dressed man who also happens to have four legs, and giant wings made of fire. He casually asks if you are new to the place, you say "Yes" and the two of you talk as he informs you of the goings-on in the world. Turns out you were summoned, indirectly, by the Lord of the Realm© to be his champion against a coming evil. Something that you, simply put, find absurd. You are given a suit of armor, and a sword "able to strike down God himself" and told to use them against the evil.
Shortly thereafter, a representative of The Coming Evil© approaches you, and offers you a rather lucrative deal if you go ahead and slaughter the Lord of the Realm©. Simply put: You will be the new Lord, and they will all have to kiss your heavily-armored and powerful ass until such a time that you decide that you should take off the armor and someone surely kills you.
Knowing this, do you:
1 - Attempt to summon Dark Charizard, but get a notice at the top of the screen saying that it doesn't work here?
2 - Kill The Lord of the Realm©, and become the new Lord, working with The Coming Evil©?
3 - Try to find a power cord to double-click?
4 - Kill The Coming Evil, when it finally gets here, and be The Hero?
5 - Summon the land's analogue to Dark Charizard, and kill everyone who dares challenge you as you kill both of them?
6 - Wander around and level up?
7 - Go back to your own plane and hope the armor goes with you, because it looks really sweet?
What usually comes to mind when you do think about them?
2. What song can you not stop listening to right now?
3. Approximately how much water do you consume on a daily basis?
4. Will you describe or post a picture of what you define as the closest thing to the "perfect body"?
5. If you could travel to any country in the world for ten days on an all-expenses-paid vacation, where would you go?
Given that above, would it be analogous to say that a context-free grammar's capability of digitally describing a grammatically correct sentence within a natural language would also imply that it's describing a well-formed sentence?
What gift could you buy for a kid that would annoy their parents the most?

I was eating lunch thinking of knock-knock jokes and realized if someone ever gave me a book of them as a kid, I would not stop until I had read every single joke to my mom or dad
How many times have you been salmoned?
Do you take criticism well?
Are you confrontational or non-confrontational? In what situations?
I would really like some naan or carne guisada with corn tortillas.
Okay, I've been salmoned 3 times in the past two days and before that I think one time.
I would say that sometimes I take criticism well, and sometimes I don't. When it comes to schoolwork, I take it well and I put it to good use, the same way with my artwork and my playing. When it comes to how I handle situations or my personality or how I view myself, I don't and it generally upsets me and I want to seclude myself from the world. I'm working on it, but it's still difficult sometimes.
I would say that I'm confrontational when I need to be, but I generally like to avoid confrontation.
Think you've got one that fits this criteria?
Watching people get hurt, but not REALLY hurt cracks me up. I don't know why.
I only read one book twice and that was Howard Pyle's Robin Hood. Other than that I have to side with Seinfield that keeping books you've already read is silly.

It's looking a bit likely that my husband may possibly get a job at Big Hoity-Toit University in Big Hoity-Toit Expensive city sometime soon, and it's giving me little panic attacks. How do I deal, TQC?
Another wrench in the situation; you hated the college you were attending. You're planning to take a year off.
After you've been home for a month, your mother flips out on you about how you don't act like she owns your soul anymore and how she expects to be able to control you like you're a preteen now that you're back in the house. You clearly disagree.
Instead of returning to college, what do you do?
Keep saving money, find a cheap apartment, move out asap?
Stay and deal with parental crap to save more money?
+/- Trade school/full time work?
Srs/nonsrs answers---all are welcome

3a. If you plan to have children, do you plan to pass any of these names down to them?
3b. Are there any family names that you're glad did NOT get passed down to you?
My mom just told me once you're married its bad luck to ever take off the ring.
I would think too much water and dirt/etc would damage it if a person were to wear it 24/7, but thats just my naive opinion I suppose.
Have you ever done something like this? How did it go? Did you end up actually enjoying yourself?
Any general advice?
2- Why did my library claim to have a lot of books I wanted in, but I couldn't find them anywhere? (I didn't order them ahead, just looked them up when there... they said they were 'available', rather than 'waiting to be shelved'... my library system has a lot of codes for crap.)
3- What's the last thing you thought was a sure thing, but it turned out to all be a LIE??
1- A sample baby bottle... I love getting free stuff for baby. And the book from tqc_travelbook :P

Where are each of your parents in respect to their siblings? (Oldest, youngest, middle, only child...)
How is your parents relationship with each other?
Right now my favourite combination is vanilla ice cream, oreo crumbs (the kind from the box, so its really fine, not like big chunks), and Rice Krispies. Rice krispies are my favourite ice cream topping, and strongly encourage you all to try it. This is a topic I'm very passionate about!
Also today I made cookies and crumbled a cookie onto it to. I'm so healthy! When was the last time you made cookies?
edit! okay, too broad of a question. will you name a few movies/tv shows in your netflix queue that you're really looking forward to seeing?
anyone want to recommend your favorite foreign films?
Who wants some?
Do you hand deliver it to them or do you put it back in their mailbox for them to get the next day?

Let me know if you any ideas. Thanks soooooo much!!
Now what name would you suggest?
(Right now I think Selma is my favorite suggestion followed by Sonja in #2 and Amber in #3.)
Are songs about boners funny?
Is this song (web page with video embedded) funny?
The video's NSFW, I think.
edit: Will you tell me about your first experience with a boner? Yours or someone else's, doesn't matter.
Does it ever cause problems?
Anyone like these? http://www.taquitos.net/cheese_puffs/PiratesBooty I seriously think I'm addicted to them.
What is the weirdest taste you've ever had? Apparently, there's these new Doritoes that taste like a combination of Fruit Loops and lime. I am not kidding you.

Should I completely forget about him? If he presses the issue again, should I stand my ground and explain that I don't think we should see each other again? Am I being a baby about this? It's kind of a "three strikes you're out" situation for me, but part of me wants to give in. But I don't want to seem like a doormat that will wait around for a guy to be good and ready for me, you know?

You have a really bad allergic reaction to something, and are rushed to the hospital. During a particularly bad conniption, your heart stops for 5 seconds, and then, you're revived. You're past the seizures and are wheeled to a bed for rest. Suddenly, the curtains are pulled aside, and a few medics are there, brandishing saws. "We heard your heart stopped. You were technically dead. We've come for your organs. All of them. If you'll please put your hands through the restraints, we'll get this done and leave you to your jello". What do you do?
