My dad told me today he had 1300 e-mails he had to read. Yea, they are all work-related, but WOW! That seems like A LOT!
How many e-mails do you get on a daily basis?
My dad told me today he had 1300 e-mails he had to read. Yea, they are all work-related, but WOW! That seems like A LOT!
Does anyone know what I'm talking about and where I can find it?

If you had a pet tortoise, what would you name it?
My husband just found a tick on his stomach. He wanted me to remove it for him because it was in an awkward area. I couldn't do it. I almost puked. I also woke up my son even though it's 1am to check him over and make sure he does not have a tick. Thankfully, he was clean.
Which bug is your arch nemesis?
My husband has a job interview tomorrow. Will you wish him luck?
EDIT: You guys are awesome. <3

Let's say heaven and hell did exist. Unless most of your friends are good observant fundamentals, they're probably going to hell. Let's say you know what's waiting for you, post-death, and you can change if you wanted to. Either go to heaven, where you'll have no wants and be happy in a sin-free, genital-less Eden where sadness isn't heard of, but odds are, you won't see your friends there...or you can go to hell with all your friends, where you'll be tortured and raped and forced to do unspeakable sexual things with demons....but at least at night you'll be among those closest to you. What afterlife plan do you subscribe to?
Tomorrow, at noon, inexplicably, everybody in your city/town becomes naked. Their clothes suddenly vanish, and they're bareass-naked. Workplaces, schools, subways, Disneyland: full of naked people. This includes you. You're naked in public, and so is everybody else. What do you do?
srs answers appreciated.
I'm staying up all night tonight, but I'm tired, so I'm trying not to fall asleep.
Should I just skip the last exam, go home, and hopefully (not) teach myself that leftover material over break? (I have a class after break that follows the first, so I need to know this material)
Or should I make an honest effort to finish up my course, then take a nap, end up not having enough time at home (staying 2.5 days instead of 3.5), but not have to study over break?
Do you like grilled cheese?
What is your favorite breakfast food?
How do you keep up with current events?
I'll answer in comments.
So, do you know?
Why are we so scared of being vulnerable?
Now (after seeing the MD at 10 AM), I'm going to be stuck home to not infect people. What should I do to keep myself entertained? My husband is available to fetch me things if needed.
do you always wash your hands?
No problem, except that now I smell funny and really wish I could shower! It's a really strange sort of curry-like smell. Is that normal?
What should I dress up as?

I really, REALLY like this person and think she deserves any good thing that could ever come to her. So I want the letter to be good.
Unfortunately, I have no idea how to write this. Does anyone have experience writing this type of thing? Any suggestions of format, what to include, length, etc?
Have I been hexed? I mean, wtf.

2. After the interview, he said a member of his team would be in touch to set up a follow-up conversation, but he was vague about the dates--just something about "within the next week or ten days." Was this a kiss-off, or is he actually going to get in touch with me?
Think bar food or happy hours.
Thanks for responding!
Do you say Oh my God/oh my gosh/ or oh my goodness? Why?
Have you always said it like that?
Inspire me with new music please!!! I’m so tired of listening to the same crap on the radio.
Could you tell me about some new bands/music you are into at the moment?

Why the hell does it take 20 days for them to mail out a pay check?
Do you think it will actually show up today?
If I call back what do you think the chances are they'll tell me to wait until Monday?
as a side note, my new job, I got my first pay check issued Friday the 13th which I wasn't able to pick up...they mailed it to me (which I didn't know they'd do) and I had it by Wednesday
update OK turns out I was a week off in when I quit, I quit on the 28th, however, to me, that is still way too long to be waiting and there is still the mystery of why they would wait until the 10th of the next month to even mail it.
how hawt was the way angelina jolie layed down on the top of the bus going into the tunnel?

1) One pair was a slip-on shoe with a paint by numbers theme. There was a deer and forest scene with colors half filled in with blue, brown, pink, green, and tan. I thought anything could be worn with them really, but what kind of colors would look best?
2) The other pair was mint green, black, and charcoal ( Collapse )
Also, does anyone know which stores sell Rocket Dog shoes?

I'm signed up with flickr but haven't used that so I don't know about its quality and shipping speed.
I have a scandalous photo that I want to print and give as a present to someone before they leave in ten days. I'm too embarrassed to go into a real printing studio. TQC, do I have enough time to order and get the photo?

Do you know of any gorgeous/gorgeous or ugly/ugly couples?
Rock Band for Wii comes out in a couple days. But, Guitar Hero 4 comes out in the fall.
So I ask, TQC, Rock Band or Guitar Hero 4?
(I really don't want 2 sets of drums, 2 mics, ect...)
ETA: rumor has it Rock Band equipement will NOT be compatiable with GH4... So buying just the disc later doesn't sound like an option.
I was walking by two people once, and one said, "How did you get a guy you didn't know to fix a watch you didn't have?" to which the other replied, "That was a party, and that was in Holland."
2. And what is 'Associated Press' because I have been hearing over the past few days that they don't want people blogging about their news, because apparently that's stealing away their customers. Even though it was fair use. Aaand so, I don't want to accidentally blog about something on their site, if it's a group of newspapers or something, that I just don't know about. edited in question: Would their new 'rules' and threats worry you at all?
3. What do you dislike about current media?
I dislike that they're so negative all the time, and that they have so much influence on what people think about situations, because they're often so biased.
2) Is there any band that you were once heavily into that now kinda embarrasses you to talk about? What band? Me: Bright Eyes. I was OBSESSED.
Did you or do you have friends that affected what you could do together because of her/his religion?
So I have a female friend who has a girlfriend. However, their relationship is a complete secret from everyone and there's only like, four people who know (me being one of them).
So at her brother's graduation party, my friend got wasted and made out with one of her brother's friends just for the hell of it. To her it meant nothing at all, but she knew she had to tell her girlfriend.
Once she did tell her, her girlfriend was totally pissed off and even threatened to break up with her.
My friend said she didn't feel bad though because when they went to a party together, her girlfriend asked her ex boyfriend if she could give him head.
Was this cheating?
To you, what counts as cheating?
Is it okay for your partner to think other people are attractive?

Any suggestions to get me back in the game?
Does this mean that TQC members are more highly evolved?
What do you think will be considered an 'evolved' skill in the future?
We used to play something we called "Fattyus Bluff" (A play on Thaddeus Bluff from Doug. lol). We'd put 3 giant innertubes around someone, and that person was Fattyus Bluff. That person would then chase us around and try to trap kids under his "fat". The kids being chased would have to try and remove the innertubes, or "steal his fat". There was no real point to this game other than that...haha
what's the most you'd pay for shoes?

Do you ever think something like, "You know, I bet we're all gonna get skin cancer from crap like this."
Do you ever get super insanely strong craving for meat?
I haven't eaten red meat in four years, but HOLY CRAP, out of nowhere I suddenly really want some beef.
It doesn't help that my family and I are going to an Italian restaurant I haven't been to in years, and they have the BEST motherfucking meat sauce ever.
Should I throw my meat celibacy to the wind and order the veal tortellini with meat sauce?
EDIT: People keep pointing out that you can't just dive right back into meat without killing yourself, so I'll be getting the cheese tortellini with marinara sauce instead. :(

I decided to donate it, because I'm losing about 14" of hair and it's enough for locks of love. has anyone else ever done this before? and this'll sound stupid, but on the website it says it has to be washed, dried, and cut for donation.
so, um, do I wash it myself first and dry it and go to the salon? Or do they wash it, dry it, cut it, then re-wet it for my real haircut that will make me look fabulous?

so, tqc, what game should i get next?
Does anyone know? Does this have something to do with an embedded colour profile, and if so, can I change that in ImageReady or do I have to do it fucking frame by frame in photoshop?
Yesterday someone called my phone, but I missed the call. I called it back and the woman on the other end was very rude, asking me why I was calling.
Today I called a number on a cell phone I found in order to return it to the owner and the person was like "Well bring it to ______" When I said I couldn't, she was like "Well then what do you want me to do about it?!?" Dude, I'm doing your friend a favor by giving him back his phone, be a little nicer about it.
It was a tower, and you were this little dude and you had to go around the tower and beat the levels. Things flew at you and you had to get out the way, and they had bumps on them.
TQC does anyone know the name of this game?? I am lost! From googling I have discovered that there was a game named Communist Mutants From Space. How eighties!
It's called Nebulus! and you can play it online. And the little dude is this pig frog.
Preferably one that would fair well if it had to sit in a box for a few weeks while being shipped overseas.
What about when you're working out?
Do you think it's tacky to call your friend on your cell as a means for a distraction?
->mccain, obama, hil-dog

now my brain is lazy, what are some other good combinations?
How much do you think I should charge for paintings like this?
(I know the minimum amount of money I'd want to PART with them for, but I'm still not certain how much to charge when I go fully freelance)
By the way you guys, I just remembered that it was someone in TQC that linked me to the Andy Warhol quote for the elephant painting ;)
