What questions would you want to ask a new friend?
What questions would you want to ask, but wouldn't actually ask out loud for some reason?
(People always ask me "Tell me something about yourself", but I never know what to say. Since too many people seem to not know what to ask, or at least won't SAY what they want to ask, I figure I may as well see what TQC thinks people might want to know.)
What do you think of Hollywood hiring fat actresses to play fat characters, when they can easily put thin actresses in fat suits?
do you stand up or sit down to wipe your ass?

Who do you fart in front of?
My dog's been throwing up since about 5:00 this afternoon. At first it was food, but now it's just bile. We weren't too worried at first because he had been munching on grass, but he hasn't stopped and it's like 2:00am. It was a holiday so our vet was closed, plus since it's so early, no other vets are open right now. We adopted another dog a few days ago, so maybe she got him sick? I have no idea but I feel awful. Any ideas as to how to get him to stop throwing up/what it could be? Other than the puking, he's acting completely normal.
A not-dog-related question: Have you gone to see any fireworks so far this year?
I am drunk and have to be to work for nine am. What should i do?
I did something to my wrist. I don't know exactly what I did, but it's extremely bruised and sore. I can't make a fist without being in a lot of pain and I can't even type on the keyboard. I thought I had a tensor bandage, but I don't. I do have a triangle bandage so I'm wearing it in a sling.
However, I would really like to support it more and the sling is extremely annoying. Is there anyway to fold up the triangle bandage to make it like a tensor? Or what common house hold item could I use in its place?
Have you ever lost someone close to you to suicide? If you have, how did you cope with it?
So a few months ago I started noticing that occasionally I'd try to watch an embedded video and it would show it as having been removed. Sometimes I wouldn't even be able to watch it on YouTube, but mostly I was able to watch videos no problem.
Now, I cannot see any video. Every single one I click on tells me it's unavailable, which can't be right since there are comments as recent as 2 min prior being added while I'm attempting to watch the video.
I've cleaned out my cache and cookies and reset them. I still can't view them!! What the hell is going on?! Anyone have an idea? Help? (I've searched Google but it's all about videos that people have uploaded themselves, not ones that are already uploaded)
This is really driving me nuts. Oh, and I'm using Firefox 2.0.
Is anyone here a GA fan? Do you remember the name of the episode where the blonde/girl doctor/intern whatever was supposed to marry this guy that is in the hospital bed and is dying. She comes down the steps wearing this strapless pinkish gown with her hair up. By the time or when she gets to his room he dies and she lays on the floor beside his bed. And one of the other girls comes in and lays down beside her? I would LOVE to watch this episode again, but have no clue as to the name of it. Any ideas?
TQC OMG I WILL SOON BE A SISTER-IN-LAW!!!

A guy I work with for an hour on sundays has asked me to meet up with him. I'm fairly sure he means it in a date sense, but i'm just not interested in any way. How can I let him know this without making things awkward at work?
I have a free LJ rename token.
Should I use it?
If so, what should my new journal name be? I lack creativity when it comes to picking user names.
I'm on my laptop and all of the sudden whenever I leave my mouse in one spot for more than like 5 seconds it clicks there and just generally pisses me off. How do I fix this?
I would rather be completely stressed out and dying as opposed to completely carefree with nothing to do, which is why I hate summer vacation so much.
TQC, which do you prefer to be? Stressed most of the time, or relaxed most of the time?
I'm 1,000% bored, and feel like I should spend some time together with my fiance that doesn't involve video games. However, we really can't spend much money right now. What should we do today, TQC?

I'm trying to figure out the name of this sushi I had.
It was a type of tuna roll but it was crunchy and it had orange stuff drizzled over it.
Does anyone know what it's called???
It was crunchy because it was fried or something, and the orange stuff was a sauce, not fish eggs.

edit: I think I lost my momentum :( god damnit. D:
Last night on our way home, around 1am, we were coming through a curve and out of the corner of my eye I saw a guy standing in the ditch. He was old, wearing bib overalls and was leaning on a shovel with his one arm and covering his eyes with his other to block our headlights. My husband saw him too because he screamed along with me.
What could that man possibly be doing in the ditch with a shovel at 1am?

Anyone have a good remedy for a poison-oak rash?
Background: I was exposed about a week ago, but the rash didn't show up til a couple days later. The main rash is on the inside of my right thigh, and has spread to the inside of my left thigh w/ a few smaller rashes going towards my right knee. I figure I have about another week and a few days before it starts fading, but it's really driving me mad now. I have some hydro-cortisone creams and rubbing alcohol, I've heard that calamine does nothing so I don't really wanna go out and buy something that won't work. I've also heard that Vitamin C will help make it go away faster. Help!!
Thanks in advance :)
I've a friend that asks every woman he gets involved with, before anything starts, if she's an axe murderer. This may strike some as odd but he's recently taken on a new twisted aspect. At some point or other, usually after things have developed, he makes sure that the woman he's seeing never gets it into her head it's never okay to lay eggs in his skull.
Fairly sure he's not being serious with either of these but you never can tell these days.
Have you ever asked any bizarre or ridiculous questions of who you're involved with or about to be? Something you may've wanted a serious answer to but phrased it a bit uniquely?
If you could master a circus act, which one would it be?
I still feel very guilty about something. Here it is...
A few years a go I had two cats. Mim and Monday. My boyfriend at the time was very abusive. I didn't have the nerve to leave him because I was a fuck mook back then. Anyway.
One morning we woke up and Monday, my little black kitten had destroyed the kitchen. My X was so mad that he yelled and screamed at me and threatened me and yatta. I was trying to calm him down but nothing worked. He took Monday and drove off with her. I tried to run after him but he spun off. He dropped her off somewhere. Somewhere in the woods:( I left his fucking evil ass after that. This was years ago. But I still remember her little face looking at me when he pulled out.
I don't think I will get over it. I just hope she is o.k and found a good home.
1. Not sure how to word this. How do I get over Monday?
The internet is holding its own Olympics, with events such as Trolling, Flaming and Spamming. Livejournal is up against Myspace, Facebook and other inferior networking sites.
Livejournal has put together an elite team of Internethletes to represent it as a whole. They are called 'The Question Club'.
My question is, which TQCer would participate in which event?
So I've been invited to a family function tonight -- a wedding party thrown for one of my younger cousins who got married in Ottawa last weekend. I haven't seen said cousin in about, oh, ten or twelve years, and I'd really rather not go to the damn party. But I feel like I'm expected to go (I hate that, dammit.)
So, TQC, what say you: Should I go, or should I say the hell with it and skip the bloody thing?
I've been looking for an animal help or pet help sort of community on LJ but so far I haven't really found anything as far as a community where you can ask for help so I thought I would post something here.
I have been looking into getting a gecko as a pet. I have no experience with lizards or anything of the such and as a newbie I was wondering if there was anyone who would know about the differences as far as temperaments and behaviors in different breeds and which would be best for a person just getting started?
Thank you! ♥

A serious question from me for once...
My lovely friend in Alabama just now texted me, asking if 8 tylanol would kill her. I looked it up online and told her she was fine. She then told me that she took them to cause herself harm, and that she hasn't eaten since thursday. Also, yesterday she texted me saying she wanted to kill herself. She's on these steroids for a medical condition and they're fucking with her head.
I don't know what to do. I'm the only person she's reached out to about this.
Please help me?
What do I say to her?
ETA: She's in Alabama for college and not only is she not close to anybody in that state, I don't have any way of contacting the only person she is close to (her boyfriend). So that's not an option.
ETA2: Okay, I can't call 911 because she's in a car, I don't know where. I can't go to her because not only do I not have the money, but she wouldn't have a way to get me from the airport to her college, so I'd be stuck there.
What I need is advice on what to tell her as I'm talking to her via text right now. She reached out to me, she's not in danger at the moment. How do I talk her down? What do I ask? Not ask?
What stereotype do you fit?
I broke up with my shitty boyfriend. Now I am kinda sad and lonely. What should I do now?
my landlord just came over with a friend of his. her elderly friend passed away and they are trying to find a home for the lady's 2 year old dachshund named greta. i have a 2 year old dachshund already named britten, who i love, and have always debated getting a companion for him. greta seems well behaved, not barky or nervous, and they seem to get along great. she seems a little stressed but otherwise fine. she's healthy and spayed and wouldn't need any major vet stuff, other than a bath perhaps. i'd have to teach her commands, though, she doesn't know them. the down side is having 2 dogs, feeding them, if i travel what do i do with them, etc. i am nervous about obtaining a 2nd dog, but i'd hate to see her go to the pound or something!
tqc, if you have 2 dogs, how much harder is it than having 1? what was the transition like?
most importantly, should i keep her??

1. Have you had any WTF moments lately? Feel free to share.
2. Should I drink tonight? If so, what should I drink? I'm open to suggestions.
Will you share some things that are unique or defining characteristics of your particular state/region?

I was thinking about taking a bath, but it looks like it might storm.
1) Is the comfort of a bath worth a certain death? I can just shower, it's no big deal, but I had a lame day and I thought a bath would help more.
2) When's the last time you took a bath?
3) What books are you reading right now, if any?
If you could change one aspect of your personality, what would it be?
Is there anything-- a hobby, a particular genre of music or literature, an academic discipline, etc.-- in which you wish you could take an interest, but don't seem to be able to?
Would you go poop/take a dump/do a Number 2 in a public bathroom?
If not, would you do so if you had to go really, really badly?
Me, I would only poo poo in a public bathroom if I knew I was going to have a long day away from home so I wouldn't have to deal with the pressure or if say, my stomach were killing me.
We have an adult cat and we just brought home a kitten. She eats cat food, he eats kitten food. We're running into an issue of them eating each other's food. I see this as a problem for two reasons: 1. She'll gain weight faster eating kitten food. 2. He won't get the nutrients he needs if he eats cat food.
We've tried putting the kitten's food in a separate room, hoping we could teach him that's where his food is, while her's remains, as it had been in the past, in the kitchen. Doesn't work. Any ideas on how to make this work? My boyfriend thinks we just give them each half cat food half kitten food, but I think this too is a bad idea.....

Today while driving I saw a big LED traffic alert sign - but instead of information about traffic (there was road work going on) it said "DANGER WILL ROBINSON". I loled.
What funny signs have you seen? Post pics if you've got 'em!
Is anyone else having issues with their Comcast Digital Cable? Our's randomly goes in and out for a few seconds, and now the image size on the tv is absurdly small. We have not adjusted any settings on our tv or cable box...and our other non-digital box tv gets a full screened image. We have a black box all around the screen. It gets slightly bigger when viewing an HD channel.
So, masters of TQC and technology, how the heck can I view my cable on full screen again?!
do you like watching the commentaries on DVDs?
If so, which DVDs have particularly good ones? I've noticed that some of them kind of suck... just actors and directors gushing over each other. but pixar movies always have really interesting commentaries, and the lord of the rings stuff was darn cool.

2. What profession are you in now? OR What degree are you pursuing now?
TQC, the time has come for me to buy a car. I have 0 interest in or knowledge of cars, so I have no idea how to figure out what I want. (I am taking a car-informed (large, male) coworker with me when I actually go to buy it to minimize the amount I get screwed; in my case all of the assumptions that car salesmen make about women are unfortunately true.)
But before I actually buy it, I have to figure out what I want. There are way too many options out there and I kind of have no idea where to begin. Here are my parameters:
- I plan to buy used and pay up-front (no loan). I do not want a new car.
- My upper budget limit is $15,000. Less would be strongly preferred.
- I do not know how to drive standard; I could learn but would prefer that to not be a requirement at this point.
- I probably need all-wheel drive as I live at the top of an extremely steep hill that is not always well-plowed in winter.
- I prefer a small vehicle as I feel more comfortable driving them and I live in a parallel-parking city.
- Low maintenance is important to me. I do not have the time, patience, or knowledge for a high-maintenance vehicle.
- Reasonably good gas mileage is important to me too. I will be doing a mix of city and highway driving (I will probably use it for short in-city trips about 4 times a week, and a long highway trip about 1 weekend a month).
- Aesthetics (not so important, but might as well throw it out there): I hate the appearance of anything boxy (truck or SUV-like) and I'm not a real fan of hatchbacks.
I drank a frozen margarita tonight. Can I still take some tylenol PM, or will I keel over and die?
I'm kind of regretting the tequilla now.

i have back problems and i'm trying to think of ways to "work out" that don't involve running. :P i started swimming again but variety is the spice of life!
anyone else get brain freeze down their back instead?
So i decided to drink the bottle of champagne my boyfriend bought for our anniversary and watch mind numbing tv.
Which led to America's best dance crew.
Where do these people come from? Are there really just groups of people who get together and dance for no reason?
Is there anyone here with some kind of legal background/actually a police officer?
To make a long story short I got pulled over & given a ticket tonight for turning right at a red light. I was at an intersection I'd never been to before and it was a rather confusing intersection (which yes, I know does not excuse me) and I apparently did not see the sign that said no turn on red.
Okay, that's all fine and dandy. So when the officer came to my window he of course asked for my driver's license and I pulled out my stack of cards out of my purse. As I was going through them he noticed I had both a state ID and driver's license. Both of my ID's were made within six months of each other, had the same address on them and neither were expired.
When the officer noticed my two ID's he got the most stunned look on his face and said, "Ma'am, are you carrying two ID's?" I explained one being state, one being my license and that I carried the state ID just in case I misplaced my license (which I've done plenty of times). He got furious with me and said, "Do you know it's illegal to carry around two ID's? I could suspend your license right now. You need to hand over both of them."
Maybe I'm dumb but I never actually knew it was illegal to carry around two ID's and certainly never knew he could suspend my license over it.
And yes, I understand that I deserved my ticket because I did turn left when I shouldn't have.. I'm just wondering about this whole ID thing.
1. Who is the most sexy Villian of all time?
2. Do you think you belong in your age group?
Sometimes I think I don't (I'm 19) because i don't understand the whole going out and getting waaassted thing. I love going to concerts but I get bored around drunk people.
I just saw the coolest video ever and want to share it with you guys. It will be in comments.
Would you like to share something with me?
Are the people on reality shows just actors or are they REALLY feeling and doing the things as they would if not being recorded? I've heard that the shows are scripted
For medical insurance, I have my group ID # and my ID#.
But I cannot find my card anywhere.
Will the ER accept this information with no card?
the other day I went into urgent care, and they said, "no card, no billing insurance."
Have you been in this situation in the ER?
Thank you much for quick responses :D

SORRY BUT WHY THERE FUCK ARE LIKE ABOUT 50+ TINY SPIDERS IN MY BATHROOM?
I AM ITCHING ALL OVER AND CANNOT STOP AND I'M SCARED THEY'RE GOING TO INFEST MY ROOM TOO. because they can smell my fear.
oh my god.
and i can't brush my teeth or have a wash or anything because all my stuff's in there KJSDGHKSDGHSDKJGHSDKJGHSKDGHS.
I bite my nails regularly, but its not so severe that my fingers hurt and bleed and its disgusting. It's an old habit but its nothing like Im hurting myself.
Whenever I watch a movie, ANY MOVIE, I tear away at my fingers/nails to the point where it DOES hurt and once in a while, bleeds. It can be any type of movie, action, scary, comedy, drama, sucky movies, movies I've never seen before, movies I've seen millions of times, movies on tv, movies on dvd, or in a theater. Always happens.
Why do I do this?
I love movies, movies are my life, what's going on?
Why am I reacting this way?
