A family member?
A Greek God?
A Roman God?
isn't there a way to search myspace by age and where they live? like, i don't have a name to put in, just a general age range and the town. i can't figure out how the hell to do it.
What is something in literature or popular culture that is recognized as highly desirable but unattainable?
How long do you think I'll last before I start falling asleep standing up?
Do you think I'll hit the ground when I reach that point or jolt awake enough to avoid face planting?
How fucked is my thought process right now?
When I move from Florida to Oregon, I have to temporarily leave my cat behind with my parentals until I get money issues straightened out. I need to know what I have to do to have her sent to me? I hear she needs vaccinations to be sent by plane. I'm wondering what the rules to this are, where I can find information on this, anything. I also hear about shipping animals, but that sounds like it's just by plane as well. *shrug* I'm lost.
Would it just be easier to have my mom visit us and bring my cat as luggage onto the plane?
Should I call the police (not 911) the next time I see 3 twelve year old girls walking in the middle of the street, not the FUCKING SIDEWALK, at 2 AM?
What kind of sunscreen doesn't hurt? I'm totally a wimp with delicate skin. I can't just not wear any because I'm about to go to the beach.
-Have you received your free diabeetus testing supplies yet?

If so, who is your favorite character?
And what is your favorite shocking moment? :D
eta: they are just hot dogs with this sauce made of ground beef and a bunch of spices and such. me and my boyfriend also put ketchup on them and they're super good. om nom nom.
2. Did you like it?
3. Any words of wisdom/advice/stories you'd like to share?
4. Is working at a bank really as wonderful as I hope/expect it to be?
We don't know exactly why she was fired, but we think it might have to do with her being late every time she has to work. (We're nosy leave us alone)
1. Have you ever been fired from your job? If so why?
2. What is the strangest reason you've heard someone get fired for?
would you lick a muffin if it was life or death?
what about a banana?
You're in a terrible wreck and one of your limbs is amputated (either at the elbow or knee depending on whether it's an arm or a leg). A renowned gadget-maker will make something to attach to the stump for you (a claw, normal prosthetic, machine gun, whatever you want) to use as long as you live. What do you ask him to make?
In your opinion, what's more likely to be invented first: a Star-Trek quality teleporter or a weather-controlling machine?
( Collapse )
Edit: Don't pussy out on me, post your shit.
What about both people?
'Cause apparently Joel thinks its kosher to invite his annoying ass new girlfriend along without consulting me(the driver/car owner) or us(the Amanda/Andy unit). So basically..if she goes it will be me, Andy..and Joemantha.
I'm also probably a terrible person for inviting my friend Courtney along so I can muscle Samantha out of the equation. My car my rules!!!!
-paws the dirt-
I know she won't sponge off someone else in the car and form some icky transformer though.
and for those who think it's just some glich in the brain, what about "Déjà vécu"? (where you get the familiar feeling AND can 'recall' the what is to happen next), how do you explain that?
Can I SEE a picture of YOU?!
U2's cover of "Hallelujah" is pretty awesome, imo.
while catching up on my Enya downloads (i have everything of hers except for the obscure singles on CD, and 99% of everything period on the computer), i ran across an album i'd never seen. titled Sumiregusa, it has about twelve tracks i think, including "Horizon", "Elian", "Kiss the Book", and "Mysterium" among others.
my media player lists the genre as Celtic (duh) and the year as 2005 (incidentally the same year Amarantine was released). i vaguely recall my friend claidis telling me it was an import, non-US album.
problem is i can't FIND it anywhere! i've searched everywhere from amazon to her official site to the best non-official fandom discographies.
i'm not imagining it--it's here, the album art media player shows HAS a pic of her, and the sung parts of the songs i have so far sure as hell SOUND like Enya. so why can't i find it anywhere to buy??
HOW DO I GET RID OF MY HICCUPS?!
I've seen that type of updatey thing before but usually there's a 'do it later' option, right? Because I'm up here alone and I don't know the passwords to log on to Windows and I kinda really need my computer.
What was the last totally weak thing that happened to you?
Anyways, Michele said to Romy, "Let's show her around..." So we left the conference room and they showed me to the room that I would be working in and introduced me to the other intern.
Up to the interview, I've only conversed with Romy, but obviously I need to write two thank yous. The thing is, when Michele introduced herself to me, she just said Michele, so I don't know what her last name is OR her email. I tried facebook, but the picture isn't clear and in a way, pushing be back.
1. Now, do I send a quick email thank you to Romy and ask her, "hey, Michele didn't give me her last name when she introduced herself, so can you give me her email?"
2. Or do I call HR aka I think I would be directed to the receptionist who would DEF know that the asian girl called because I think I was the only person who met both ladies.
It's a magazine company and I've checked masthead and all. It only lists Romy as the position. But there's 2 people with the position.
WTF DO I DO?
*(Yeah, I made up a name).
Ramen with Tahini sauce, Homemade burritos, Caramel Corn
How much did it cost you?
She sings kind of an upbeat song.
Does anyone know someone stupid enough to use soy creamer as an infant formula?
Will you please tell me the story of the stupidest thing that you have ever seen yourself or someone else do?
I've seen commercials lately for a spray that makes the tires on your car look like they are constantly wet. I'm sure there are some people that are excited about it, but it just seems ridiculous to me.
( Collapse )
2. Whenever I type or use my mouse, my right index finger gets all tingly. What's wrong with it?
3. My boss is being investigated for security clearance today. (The feds are coming to work.) What are good ways to mess with him?
4. I'm writing a summer review packet for students going in to Calculus. What questions should I ask?
Should a renter be afforded this same tax break? Why or why not?
tqc, what is the song i'm thinking of?
Whats your favorite perfume/cologone?
1. What does this odd joke that was sent to me mean?
2. Thank you for everyone that pointed out it was "bee pee", aka BP gas, haha. Not at all funny.

So zombies take over the world and mortals are left running and hiding for their lives. You manage to land yourself in a group of people who do good fending off zombies. They seemed nice enough but there was something they were keeping from you that was making you feel unsettled but you never felt comfortable asking them.
One day your group was attacked and they were unprepared to fight so you all fled. And here is where you find out that everyone can outrun you. The key to their survival was learning that you don't have to be the fastest out to outrun the zombies, you just have to run faster than the guy beside you. One of the people in the group slows down and trips you for good measure before sprinting off.
You manage to fight your way out of the mob of zombies, unfortunately, they gnawed on you a bit. You catch up to the group and they feel bad about using you as bait so they could get away. They feel guilty and don't want you dying twice so you and everyone else decide what they want to do with you when you turn into a zombie.
2. Be the first zombie ever to star in a reality tv show. Like the Simple Life (only you'd be smarter)
3. Get sent to the live in the base ment/lab of some weird brainy shut-in who is looking for a zombie cure.
4. Get released into the wild far from other zombies and people.
5. screw those options. You are still pissed off and want revenge. So you start biting and scratching everyone. They got you into this mess so you are taking them all down with you
6. Other see comments.
(omg fail poll. Last edit. I keep screwing things up)
Are there any drugs you use regularly?
Tell me about an interesting experience on drugs?
Have you ever posted about someone else in there?
If you don't know the answer to that, what is something you DO know?
I've had cats all my life, and they've always been indoor cats and have never worn collars... but we just got collars for our two indoor cats because we're going to be moving soon to a house where there is more of a chance that the buggers could escape outside, so we wanted to make sure they had ID tags (one of them is microchipped as well, and we're working on getting the other one a microchip).
Also, does anybody use Soft Paws on their cats? Do you like them/will you please tell me about your experience with them?
My collection is now frustratingly overplayed.
Why does she do this?
She does this every time I refill her water dish. It's clean, and it's not new; same one she's always had.
What is your gender?

2. What are some of the nicknames your city has? (E.g. Portland is known as PDX, Rose City, Stumptown)
3. What colour are you living room walls?
I have the evil demon on my PC that is known as Vista. I'm currently backing up all my saved files, pics, songs, etc on disc, so I can reformat and go back to XP. Do I need to back anything up from the C:\Program Files?? Or the Windows folder, etc?
Hope someone can help!! :(
1a.) If so, could you recommend a song to me (as I am in the process of attempting to create a classical playlist)?
2.) How do you unwind after a long day/a stressful event?
3.) What's your favorite nickname that someone has given you? Why is it your favorite?
If you were to change your username, what would you change it to?
Mine: It's a fight club reference. Pretty stupid though, I must say.
No idea what I should change it to
Being (semi-) realistic about today's technology, how do you WANT your computer to work instead?
How would you imagine doing the following:
1. Creating and printing a letter to someone you've known for years?
2. Finding and playing songs by a certain person (either from your own computer, or online; your choice)?
3. To do something repetitive, that only you need to do (so you can't get some ready-made program to do it, but will be driven nuts if you have to do it from scratch every single time)?
4. To set an alarm to go off (or email you, or whatever) when the weather in your area is going to be rainy over the next few days?
1. I think you should be able to start with a template, open your address book, and drag the person's name into the address box. The computer might then say, "This person has a home address and a work address; which do you want to send your letter to?"
Why do some people like to smoke only when they're drinking alcohol? Wouldn't the smoking mess up your ability to taste the alcohol?
Did you think 'Jew' was one of them?
What did you do there?
2. Want to tell my about your frustrating internet shopping experience?
Or, if you couldn't care less...
3. What was the last illness you had?
ETA: I'm pretty sure he doesn't know it's his half bday, so I'm going for something funny, but no mean answers!
Would you guys please diversify my music collection?
Do you prefer to eat breakfast food when you wake up, or can you eat whatever?
I had some curried chicken at 11:30. That was my breakfast.
eta: how much is your cell phone bill per month? would you pay $100 for unlimited.. everything? (text messaging, long-distance, call fwd:'ing, etc.)
how much is TOO much to spend on a pair of shoes?
And while we're on the subject of professions, what are you doing/going to be as a life career?
Was it what you initially wanted?
( Collapse )
also, i spilled arbor mist on the side on new years eve. it's not terribly obvious but there are a few spots. any chance i can get it out? the dress is made of polyester.
Here it is. Very funny stuff, IMO.
What's currently on your clipboard?
good ladies and gentle-people of tqc: what do you hate the most?
1. What has happened in your life lately?
2. What should I do this afternoon?
It's hot as Hell here and I'm sick as a dog, but I don't want to just sit around.
#1- What is the best way to deal with ants running loose in your house/apartment? Our neighbors don't have the ant problem we do, and I don't know what to do. We have this weird white ant poison stuff, but it doesn't work and I feel uncomfortable about putting it near our food. Also they thrive on our tub. WHY DO ANTS LIKE BATH TUBS?
#2- Do you have any favorite online resource for tiled/repeating backgrounds that are awesome/appealing/not from 1997? I want to give my LJ some flair that does not consist of old GeoCities style backgrounds (or more fucking ~hearts & stars~ tiled bgs).
I've never sent a text message in my life. Do I need to send text messages? If I don't, will I surely die?
2) Will you show me a lovely picture you have taken and tell me about it?
He's been gone for a month :(
Would you like to give me an estimated date as to when SOMETHING in my life will actually work out for me?
What was the last thing that disappointed the fuck out of you?
Do you feel guilty for feeling sad about something that isn't a big deal?
If no, what should I do?
Either way, should I also give my mom flowers because I was moving on mothers day weekend and didn't manage to do anything for her? (She insisted I forget about it)
How do you get on with your parents? Were they good to you growing up?
What item of food or drink would make you insanely happy right now?
I would REALLY love some french onion dip with some ruffle potato chips. mmm.
It's my friend's birthday and I want to make her a mix of covers, because she has a crazy love for them. Doesn't matter what genre, I just want to know what covers you like best.
Holy shit! A house a few down from us is burning down. We've been told to stay inside.
you are driving on a 2 lane road in the country. there is a road coming up on your right with a stop sign for them, but you have no stop sign. tractor trailer #1 is in front of you, turning onto this road. they turn, and you continue driving. however, tractor trailer #2 has half- turned onto the road you're on, and you don't have time to stop so you hit them, bounce off of them, and then hit the truck in the other lane waiting to turn left.
whose fault is this?
eta for clarity: tractor trailer #2 was on the other road, turning onto my road to go the same direction as me. he turned as TT #1 was turning, and thus couldn't see down my road. i have no idea if he actually stopped at his stop sign. when TT #1 was onto the other road, TT #2 was directly in my path so i slammed on the brakes and i believe i hit TT #2 and the pick up truck at basically the same time.
black car = me
brown = pick up truck waiting to turn
blue = TT #1
red = TT #2
there is a stop sign at the end of the side road, but the vertical road is a state route and doesn't have any stop signs for like 20 miles. the speed limit is 55, and i was probably doing about that.
What is the funniest thing you've ever asked?
If you haven't heard of it, or texted/called them, will you upon finding out what it is?
What's for dinner?
You're bitten by a radioactive chipmunk, and have gained the powers of that animal. You can fit 20x as much matter into your cheeks than normally possible, you can scamper up trees like it's no one's business, and you can fit into a cramped, tiny area with little discomfort (particularly those holes found within trees). Plus, instinctively, you've built yourself a lair aka headquarters, where you hoard all your goodies. What do you do with your newfound powers?
There's a room full of radioactive animals, that can pass on their powers to you with a simple bite. Which animal's abilities will you take?
I've got Mortis Amorata. Yes? No? Not even close?
Latin literates please help!
Edit: Mors Amatricum Nostrum 'Death, our lover', amātrīcum being the genitive plural of Amatrix, 'female lover'. Death would be female to these gals after all. =)
Personally, I will never understand why people consider these movies so good: Scarface, Transformers, No Country For Old Men, Citizen Kane, Reservoir Dogs and Star Wars.
How many times in a night do you have sex with your partner?
And would you say that certain ethnicities are "hornier" than others?
1. How did you design your tattoo? Did you sketch it yourself or did you describe it the artist or what? I kind of know what I want but I can't draw for shit.
2. How did you pick an artist?
3. What do you think about tattoos of trees? In general.
What makes you a horrible driver?
I text, I speed and I also change cd's all while driving (not necessarily all at the same time) & WITHOUT TAKING MY EYES OFF THE ROAD. yes. I am that talented.
What makes you a good driver?
I look over my shoulder whenever I am changing lanes (after using my rear-view mirror, of course) I use my blinker as needed.. I stop at stop signs. I know who has the right of way and when upon entering onto the highway. I know better than to try to beat the light once it's turning yellow and I am still about 15 ft away.
any suggestions or ideas?
My highest is 80/min so far (I got 66 first though). It amazes me how people can get 100+ as I think I type quite fast, personally!
What literary character do you hate?
thing is she favors my parents (doesn't really like me...and especially now she kinda growls if i try to appraoch her, she doesn't usually, I'm assuming it's becuase of her paw hurting?..) and they just left the other day on vactaion not to come back for another two weeks.
I know she's acting funny partly because she misses them already..but that doesn't exlplain the paw licking..should I wait a day to see if everything fixes itself..but then if she really did hurt her paw then it would be like me letting her suffer.
agh what should i do?
(for me, at disneyland)
have you ever been proposed to?
(yes, i knew the day he was going to ask, it wasnt anything out of the ordinary)
It could be allergies though because when I've been outside I've been sneezing a bit, and my dad brought it to my attention. And right now my nose is a bit runny.
But either whatever it is, I'm getting sick.
How can I nip this oncoming cold thing in the bud and prevent getting sick? Stuff to do, stuff to take? I start my new job in a couple days and I want to feel 100%!
p.s.-i live in grand forks, nd
2. Do you go to tanning salons?
3. Is it overcast where you are too? :(
Do you like or hate it?
Alton Brown or Anthony Bourdain?
What is your occupation?
2) Show me a video of a singer who annoys the unholy hell out of you?
3) Someone you're minorly ashamed that you used to love?
Mine in the comments
a. a black person with bipolar disorder
b. a white person with only 2 fingers on each hand
c. an Asian who cannot be exposed to outdoor light
The descriptions cannot be specified more than what has been given. Who do you choose?
2. what kind of field is your job in?
3. what's the last movie you saw in theaters & how was it?
4. what's the last CD you purchased that you regret buying and why?
( Collapse )
Provide your screen name?
IE does fine for me.
So I'm in the Stone Age.
At least I ain't got a MAC.
What is your pets favorite toy? My pup loves this flamingo I gave him when he came to live with us. It was like 5 times his size and now they are best friends! Except I took it away because he chewed its head open and I can't find the sewing stuff to mend it. :/
2. what was the last big change (physical, emotional or otherwise) you've made?
3. does the head of your bed face the north, east, south, west or something inbetween?
4. what book are you reading & is it for pleasure or school?
5. should I watch ps I love you tonight?
do you record things on it?
do you have VHS tapes?
we're giving ours away. I have a feeling I'm one of the last people to have one of these things!
And, is it possible to smoke faster if you're in a hurry? Like, still finish it, just... i don't know, inhaling faster?
Kinda dumb, I know. But I don't have any personal experience or friendly smokers to ask.
My comet sadly died the other day. I don't have air-conditioning and the temperature in my room shot way up and over heated the water. But my oranda lived.
Today I took him out and put him in a smaller container so I could clean the tank (I'm still using the same 6.7 L tank.. I know.. I need a bigger one..) Anyways, when I felt the water in the tank was the same temperature as the water in the container i put him back in. And now he's just kind of floating on the bottom in one corner.
He still breathes.. but he just won't move from that spot.
The green thing is a pea. I read on a few other sites that if it's swim-bladder disease then peas can be used as a laxative..sort of..(?) But he refuses to eat it..
EDIT (here's the question): What do I do?
Nevermind, I still wanna see.
Show it to me!
Mine under cut. ( Collapse )
If it matters, ( Collapse )
EDIT: Thanks for some great ideas. I'm not really a spud eater, and I honestly didn't really know what to even google, since I got more hits for mashed and potato salad than anything.
If anyone has any more ideas, that'd be great. At least now I know what I can try for the next couple of days/weeks.
Let's just say that I managed to um....get copies of their mugshot photos from when they were in their 20s....
Should I be an ass and make them into their birthday cards this year, so only they see them? Or be an even bigger ass and send them out as my Christmas cards?
Or should I do something even more creative with them?
My boyfriend and I see eachother twice a week (we live 40 miles away from eachother). We (almost) always have sex when we see eachother. And we (almost) always have sex twice in one night, on one occasion three times.
Is this too much sex? It FEELS like too much sex because we have it every time we see eachother.
Would this bother you? Or would you just be glad that you're getting pretty darn good sex on a frequent basis?
What do you do for a living to make that wage?
Edit, why is there such a stigma of telling people how much you make?
In my PT warehouse job (3 days a week) i make 12.50 CAD/hour, which in a month covers all my basic expenses, rent, food, transit pass.
The rest of the time is freelance theatre work which makes any where between 14-26/hour
2) If the answer is yes and if this upsets you, how do you react (or unreact)?
Now, this may be a stupid question, but is it possible to have too much Vitamin C?
If not, is it possible to get sick from having too much of any type of vitamin/something that's supposed to be good for you? Just curious.
And if you don't feel like discussing colds/vitamins, post a photo of your pet being extraordinarily cute. ( Collapse )
1. what's your favorite music to fall asleep to slash music that puts you to sleep?
2. how do microsoft word pages translate to book sized pages in terms of page count?

She's at out mutual friends house right now.
What do I say to her to make her feel better?
Her family and pets have safely evacuated.
This kind of pissed me off. Do I need SAM-e?
Have you ever posted a picture of someone else for a picture post?
Have you ever had a sexy dream about someone reignite your interest in them? I am having this problem.
It turns out that my prescription has actually improved over the last two years, thus my glasses are now too strong for my eyes, hence the headaches.
So my doctor gave me my new, weaker prescription and I have to go buy some new lenses for my glasses.
I didn't know that could even happen! I knew that prescriptions could get worse as you age, but it's so weird to think that mine healed (for lack of a better word) itself!
Did you know that could happen? Has this ever happened to you, or anyone you know?
2. What's your favorite facebook application?
3. What's the most pointless facebook application?
4. What's a guilty pleasure book of yours? One you'll read or reread but hate admitting you do, like a kid's book or a terrible Harlequin novel.
My 7th grade English teacher (who was awesome, btw) would use "Herb Gobsnotch" and "Gertrude Googlesnort" as hypothetical character names. She also used the phrase "Yes, no, I don't know, who cares, up your nose with a rubber hose?" whenever she was asking the class something and nobody answered. Also, my 9th/10th grade science teacher is to blame for my overusage of the word "retard". I always thought it was odd that, being a teacher, he threw the word around with such disregard.
ETA: Oh yeah, and whenever there would be a math word problem, let's say "Sally has 5 blue marbles and 7 red marbles. How many marbles does she have?" and you said/wrote "12" and not "12 marbles", some teacher during my educational career would say "12 what? Shoes?" I still do that when someone says a number and I don't know what they're referring to.
should i make a cup of tea?
what drugs have you done/would you do/never do?
