If you could ask only one question... what would it be?
July 12th, 2008
I'll exit, Firefox and AIM will freeze, then iTunes pops back up.
What's going on with that, TQC?
I've met some friends/acquaintances and hang out with them on campus (and a couple of times outside of college) sometimes, but I just simply feel out of my element around them. I always feel so awkward around them. I feel like they go out a lot more than me and feel socially awkward around them. And I just feel boring around them. But for some reason I feel compelled to keep on being around them b/c I feel like I need to know how to talk to people more and they seem like the typical college kids so I need to learn how to be able to talk to them.
If you've felt this way before, does it usually go away and do the friendships usually work out? Or does it usually fade away and you go your separate ways?
There's one bedroom, that's mine, a living area and a second bedroom I plan on turning into a library/study.
Where should i order my furnitiure from? (Place must deliver in NYC).
Any ideas? Hints? Things i should know?
What was it?
Non-serious answers accepted and encouraged.
what's more important, muffins, or packing?
Warm, cold, or room temperature?
depends on the brand/area I'm in. My tap water isn't bad, so at room temperature I don't mind it. Cold, I prefer filtered/bottled.
Never a warm water drinker.
What was the last thing that made you go LOL WUT?
2. For the past few days, tiny white spiders have been stringing down from my ceiling. What should I do about this?
3. Will you write me a short poem?! Possibly a haiku?
Do you get annoyed when people pronounce a part of your name wrong? Or your whole name?
If yes, what's your name and what do they do wrong?

Have you ever taken one of those home DNA tests, where you send it out and they tell you about yourself? What did you think of the results?
What is sexier, bellydance or burlesque?
Do you play abandonware on emulators? Which ones?
I think Micheal C. hall would be pretty perfect for the role.
2. Do you have a favorite dip?
3. Do you have any secret recipes?
I punched a wall after a fight with a friend. Now I can't really move my right hand...
How do you feel about this?
Which would you want to be (or have sex with, if that's more applicable) if you had the chance: a ZZ Top girl (like in the videos) or one of the Fly Girls from In Living Color?
(I still haven't decided on my answers to either question...)
I think it's a good investment because it gets good gas mileage and it's cheap but I would prefer something a little more badass like this Honda sports bike. I'm currently saving for a car because I don't have one and I'm driving my dad's gas guzzler truck. The Vespa seems tempting even though it's not really what I want. I'm sure I would grow to love and appreciate it though. I was just wondering what your thoughts are...
What are some cute things your pet does?
My puppy is has been curled up in a ball on my lap ever since I got on the computer. Sometimes he'll get his toy and spin around and let it go so he can run after it...like playing fetch by himself!
Also, am I the only one who grabs my dog and gives him tons of hugs and kisses every time I see that don't abuse your pets commercial? Every time that sad song starts to play I'm all "Wanna go to the park!?!" because I feel like I have to give him extra love.
I know I've seen one floating around the internet and can't seem to find it.
It had things on there like 'You must bring us food if you come to see the baby' and 'if we ask you to run to the store, you shouldn't complain'. Each item also said something about that if you break the rule you don't get to see the baby.
We probably won't ever actually send one, but does anyone remember that or have a copy of it? Or, hell, did anyone you know do anything like that?
I mean it was okay but I didn't think it was all that and a bag of chips.
Personally, I don't find it all that special. I live here and I've only gone once
How many of you have been to a Ren Fair?
How many to a Pirate Fair?
I've gone to one
If none of these fit, what did you eat for breakfast?
I ate cheetos
I found this out because she was bragging about how the shirt she'd bought me for Christmas last year had pretty much been attained illegally and when I asked her, she said how she goes into stores like Target and WalMart and Fred Meyers and complains and makes a fuss until they give her a gift card, just to make her go away/shut up and that she never bought anything to complain about in the first place.
So if I were to call up the stores and tell them what she's been doing and give them her contact info, would they stop letting her fuck them around?
I'm a hundred percent sure that what she's doing is illegal, not questioning that, I'm just wondering what I can do to stop her from being able to pull that crap anymore.
I'm aware of the rules for carry-ons, that all liquids/aerosols must be in a 3oz or less container and inside a 1 qt ziplock bag, but my boyfriend insists that our checked-in luggage can't have any big liquids either, since he had his body wash taken away when he was checking it in. Does LAX maybe have different rules?
Is it an attempt to be "hip" and "with it"?
Also, why do they always type in all caps? WHY?!
They didn't say it like that exactly, but more along the lines of "I really love you but don't want to try to be friends because you're too far away and like some other guy and it's too hard to handle and I'm going to start therapy for the second time in less than a year and both times were mainly because of Y-O-U!"
I was upset.
Do you enjoy being a Communist in America?

1. Plane tickets
2. My car
3. I've never been, but I saw a commercial and it looked really good!
4. An empty inflatable baby swimming pool (in my living room)
I'm a work and checked my cell phone and saw a missed call from my dad's wife. She never calls me so I immediately panicked, thinking something happened to my dad. Turns out, he just used her cell phone to check up on me. :P
My husband is out in the woods a lot for his job and Tecnu doesn't seem to help. He usually ends up going in to get steroid pills, but that can't be good after awhile.
Have you ever gotten a tattoo that you've regretted?
2) How much money do you spend a month on entertainment/hobbies?

What does this weekend hold for you? Exciting adventures? Mundane tasks? Eternal glory?
TELL ME. I NEED TO KNOW.
I have absolutely no idea how to do footnote citations, and it's driving me crazy. Do I need to put a little stupid number at the end of every paragraph? Or just at the end of a section that I use from a single source? When I do regular citations, I do it at the end of every paragraph or use of a new source, and I've tried the same with footnotes, but it puts a new fucking number, like I can't use the same source.
I have no idea what I am doing. Does anyone know how to use footnotes?
Why couldn't you finish it? (it was a waste of life, I was terrified, etc.)
2) What should I make with my bread? French toast? Sandwich? Anyone have good sandwich combos? Non-pork is best, since the best i can do with pork is pass on the idea.
3) I am making a mix for my friend. It's a long story, but do you guys have any ideas for the sappiest love songs? They can be good, wonderful even, but she loves sappy love songs, so anything gooey is great. I have:
Rick Astley- Never gonna give you up
Old 97s- Question
Jonathan Richman- My Baby Love Love Loves Me
and that's it.
How long do you think you would have to be trapped some place with random people before you started to go nuts?

I owe nothing, no bills, gas tank is full, etc. WHat do I do with it??

being a member of the websites, etc.
What is the most depressing movie you've ever seen?
what do you think of this artist?: http://www.melanierothschild.com
The question is: where the hell does one purchase a pager? I honestly do not know where to find this. I need to buy it in person, not from the internet, because I need it so soon. Obviously googling this has just returned online shopping, but that will not do.
ETA: The hospital uses "USA Mobility" as their pager service, if that helps.
Where do you like to shop for clothes at?
Me: Target, Mervyn's, JCPenney's, Macy's, Dillard's, Metropark, d.e.m.o., Wild Side, Swap Meets, Foot Locker, Sheikh, Journeys, Tilly's and Ross.
H&M recently opened in the town I live in as well, and I can't wait to check it out.
She opened her car door, and it hit on the side of her head. She drove herself to the emergency room, told them she had a concussion, so they gave her ibuprofen and told her to go home.
TQC-Have you ever head a severe head injury?
Will you tell me about your worst head (or anything) injury?
Pictures earn bonus points.
ETA: I've seen the movie. I know she goes to harvard and becomes valedictorian and ends up with Emmet. But movies focused around breakups are a little hard to take right now. This is all really fresh.
Have you ever had poison ivy poisoning? Sun poisoning?
Are you friends, family, dating, etc?

d. red - auburn
What book should I read first On the Road by Jack Kerouac or Ishmael by Daniel Quinn?
Are you really looking forward to The Dark Knight that much or are you just a conformist?
If I called my city police (non-emergency), would they be able to tell me whether a person had officially been reported as missing? I would be able to provide a first name, but that's it.
( Collapse )
If you don't know and don't care about the tl;dr, what should I keep by my door in case of emergency? Baseball bat or old-school steering wheel club?

I need a new, comfortable pair.
2. Would you keep using that phone if it was yours?
What has your day been like?
2) Now that I'm going to San Francisco in October, why does the TV keep showing me documentaries on how SF is going to break off the world/ be earthquaked into oblivion/ secede from the union?
3) Ben & Jerry's or Haagen-Daaz?
Example: "I loveeeeeeeee it!" That would be pronounced "lovey," idiots, which is not your intent. Or, if it *is* your intent, then you need to be kicked in the fork.
Edit: Sorry, I didn't know this had been done to death. I was just trying to perk up my mood a tad.
Alternatively, what's the most food you've ever witnessed an average sized person eating in one sitti
It's sung by some guys with British accents, and all that I remember is that the chorus goes "Shake shake, shake shake shake it up" or something with a different number of shakes. A total pop song. I've been looking it up on google but I keep getting songs that are not it.
If you get pierced or tattooed, do you tip your artist? How much?
2. If you are a lefty, have you ever been discriminated because of your hand preference?
Also, growing up, what was the most difficult thing about being left handed?
3. If you are a righty, what do you think of lefties?
4. And last but not least, a silly question. Since 3 out of the last 5 presidents have been left handed, not including whomever gets elected this year, (Both candidates are left handed), do you think that there is a vast left handed conspiracy going on? If so, what is their agenda?

When you're on a diet, what food has the overwhelming power to mess you up every time?
Ramen noodles or home made macaroni and cheese.
ETA: Wow, faucet light much? And none of you are true patriots, obviously, since you're not all clamoring for the limited edition 9/11 commemorative silver $20. For shame, TQC. Bunch of damn turrists.
What should I eat?
What should I do with my money?
Are the tempatures in the 74s all day?

Last one you left?
What comms do you read for the lulz, but aren't a member of?
Will you post a random quote from something, could be something that is stuck in your head, and see if anyone knows what it's from?
I will love you forever if you get mine.
He has a rusty blue '91 Chevy Cavalier with ripped seats, body panels painted with spray can paint, several pieces of the dashboard missing, and the ignition switch is dangling out of a hole by some wires because the ignition switch keeps breaking. He likes to decorate his car with markers and stuff. There's graffiti drawings on the outside. On the gas lid there's a marker drawing of an evil clown that says "I EAT KITTENS!" The sides of the seats are decorated with squiggly lines of green glow-in-the-dark glue gel. And there's a WarHammer figurine glued to the dashboard above the steering wheel. That should give you some idea of what it's about.
I've been searching for something kitschy to decorate his car with, but can't think of anything good. I want some suggestions. Decals? nicnacs? stickers? accessories? What should I get that he could use on his car?
For those who have had a hamster as a pet, how long did he/she live for?
Do you find it a little weird that they already have "I Love The Millenium" when the decade isn't even over yet?
What was the last weird thing you got a craving for? For me, it was a hot dog.
I'm allergic to lettuce, of all fucking things.
It's in three weeks. I don't drink and I don't do drugs, and I'm not allowed to go clubbing, go to a festival, or go abroad. Srs answers appreciated.
2. When was the last time you skipped something important? Did you regret it afterwards?
I didn't attend my junior or senior prom, my school graduation, my university summer balls, and now I am skipping graduation. No regrets so far.
3. When was the last time you shouted at a complete stranger?
A woman bumped me in the back of the head with her umbrella the other day and I turned round to tell her to watch where she was going. It was supremely dissatisfying, because I don't think she spoke English.
What's your favorite pasta sauce?
Edit: I swear I didn't see the entry before mine when I was getting ready to post (I was looking for the pasta shapes). Have you and another TQCer ever posted similar questions within minutes of each other that were NOT either inspired by the first one or inspired by a previous question?
Will you tell me about it?
BTW - I'm not interested in it; one of their recruiters called and tried to recruit my bf yesterday at work. He said no, but we're still googling and looking for others' experiences because we're curious.
2. and a general question because i know most of you aren't canadian ok, what's in your pockets?

I'm making those Amy Sedaris cupcakes right now. yum, yum!
There is a family that lives next to us that has 19248683258297 dogs. They leave them for long periods of time and the dogs bark and bark and bark....X eternity. The dogs have been barking for 5 hours straight now and I have had it! I called Animal Control...no answer. So then I called the police and they are on their way over to try to find the owners.
1. Did I do the right thing?
I walked over first and knocked but no one was there.
2. What would you have done?
3. Why is there no good t.v on Saturday nights?
Edit:I guess I better edit this. I called the local police and they connected me to 911. The woman on the other end was a bitch and was not listening to a word I said. Grumble.
Ladies - in your experience, are guys really as tall as they say they, but then you go on an Internet date and they end up being a few inches shorter than you? Does it totally kill the date that he lied about that?
(background - I'm 5'10, and if I go on an Internet date with a guy who says he's 5'10, I usually end up being a few inches taller than him in flat shoes. I'll date a guy who's shorter than me, but if he lies about it, I'm out the door!)
Should I be at least a little bit embarassed that I'm really excited about getting tickets to a Jonas Brothers concert?
Who would you lay money on, in a pirate vs ninja fight?
Do you know anyone who'd make a good pirate? What about ninja?
I think kennapea would make an awesome pirate.
What do I want according to you, TQC?
Also, who is currently on your mind at this very second?
what was your last awkward experience? share with the class!
if you have, what was it that you managed to do?
Ok so my question is:
I need to call someone's cell phone who is in China. I have a calling card I'd like to use but i've never used it before. Sooo after i punch in all the necessary numbers on the calling card (card #, pin #, and international code) do I type in the cell number as it is? Area code+number? or do i leave out the area code because he's in china?
thanks for the help everyone! I was missing the +1 in front of the number! :)

I have my cousin's resume as a Word document and I was just taking her stuff out and putting my information in there and it worked out fine except it's 3 pages long and the 2nd page is all stuff I don't need. If I delete it with the backspace key it makes everything else all unaligned. Is there any possible way of deleting a whole page out of a document without screwing up everything else?!
ETA Actually .. I got rid of the second page, but now there's empty space that won't delete no matter what. Is anyone here good at this kind of stuff? Can I send it to someone and you can help me fix it? Please???
Do you know how to give an example of an HTML tag without having to munge it up by adding spaces, using square brackets, and the like?

What are some things in movies that bother you because they don't seem to make sense or because you KNOW that they're wrong?
In Cloverfield, the guy is on his cellphone in the subway... it probably wouldn't work anyway...but it really wouldn't work if major buildings were falling down that housed cell towers. In "I Am Legend" how the hell does that woman get into NYC when all of the bridges/tunnels are full of cars/non-existent? Why is the "President" in "Wall-E" a real person, when the rest of the humans are animated?
Don't have any blank CDs

Now will you do this for whoever commented above you?
