2. If you had to pick any character from any movie to go on a road trip with, who would it be?
3. So, uh...does ANYONE here eat junk food, ever? I only ask because anytime something like "what's your favorite snack?" is asked, I always see a whole bunch of this...." soy milk!!!" "Kashi!!!" "granola!!!" "not a damn thing but AIR!!!" And am I the only one who notices that?
There's a local commercial here for a team of lawyers that specialize in motorcycle accidents, in the commercial they comment how many drivers aren't careful about sharing the roads with motorcycles. In your opinion, in accidents involving motorcycles who is more often to blame-the motorcyclist or the driver of the other vehicle?
so my most wonderful best friend won 2 free[!] tickets to see the dark knight[!] in imax[!] tomorrow[!] and of course i get to go along.
so aside from right now, when was the last time you were jealous of someone?
hahaha, just kidding. real question:
what should i wear? i'm thinking high-waisted acid-washed black denim skirt, and either a t-shirt or a short sleeved blouse... but if i do that, i really don't know what kind of shoes to wear, because i don't want to be uncomfortable.
The Jamaican man that I work with asked me if I smoked (cigarettes) and I said "No, never." He was shocked. He asked if my husband smoked cigarettes and I said no. He said "I thought about 97% of Americans smoked!"
Non-Americans: Do you think the majority of American's smoke? If you said yes, what makes you think that?
And referencing my Moscow post from last night, my husband and I sat down and looked at our finances and budget and decided it just isn't feasible for me to fly to Moscow this year. But I'd like to send my friend something really meaningful and awesome as a wedding present. We met over a book series that we both enjoyed and I was thinking of getting her all of them in a nice box set or something. She can't find a lot of them in Russia and she doesn't have the means to purchase things online. Is this a nice enough present? What other neat Americanish things can I send her?
Do you recall the very first time you heard your own voice, on a video, casette tape, etc.?
How did you react?
I was in 2nd grade and my teacher wanted to make a casette tape of me reading a book so the other kids could listen and follow along. My mom came in and helped record it, and when I listened to it I started crying saying "that's not my voice!"
ETA: Does anyone out there actually like the sound of their own voice?

So you're walking down the street and come across a dead wildebeest. Out of nowhere comes a purple mermaid wearing a rainbow scarf. She starts humping the wildebeest in the middle of the road, but her fin gets in the way. She asks you to mate with the wildebeest for her, but the catch is that you will contract some crazy, nasty wildebeest STD that will cost $250,000 dollars to cure and the only doctor in the world who will help you lives on the top of an isolated mountain that costs an addtional $250,000 to get to. For $1, 000, 000 dollars, do you fuck the wildebeest for the purple mermaid wearing a rainbow scarf?
I'm fairly light skinned. I was out in the sun all last weekend and now have a minor sunburn in the shape of the collar of my shirt.
I'm getting married on the 8th of August, outside in a strapless dress. I'd rather not have any weird tan lines but I'm not sure if it's too late. Should I try and go to a tanning salon a couple times before the wedding? I'm not going to tan outside topless and a tanning salon is the only way I can think of to avoid tanlines. How many times would I need to go? What sort of cost am I looking at?
When loading a dishwasher, do you make sure all the items are placed in there "correctly" or do you haphazardly pile them all in there and hope for the best?
Inspired by my MIL loading the machine yesterday and then me going in and re-doing it because I don't like it when the plates clank and rub against each other, or when the bowls are balanced on top of small plates. (Anal much?)
The Office Webisodes can't be watched if you live in Canada.. not from NBC.com anyway. I've searched and searched and I can't find a site that lets other countries watch them. Is there any other way of watching them? I think Heroes is starting this too..
So, TQC, I'm pretty certain I've sprained my ankle. I took today off work (because I can't walk about, obviously, and my job requires it), but I really can't afford to take any more days off. Would it be really bad for my ankle if I went back to work tomorrow? I have to push carts and shelve things.
Oh, and I can't afford to see a doctor right now, so that's out of the question.
You're walking down the street following a rousing game of basketball with some of your friends, when you suddenly come across a large wildebeest. Seeing as wildebeests aren't so common in your area anymore, following The Wildebeest Murdering Act of 1984, you stop for am moment and contemplate various things such as "My, what a large animal." and "I didn't think I was taking those drugs today."
You, for some ungodly reason, decide to move a bit closer to the surprisingly tame wildebeest. After a period of time, it clears it's throat and asks you the time. You remember various excerpts from you biology books indicating that wildebeests cannot, in fact, talk, and that this is a severe problem that may also be some kind of neurological disorder. It was a complicated book.
Faced with the notion of a talking wildebeest in the middle of the street, do you: 1- Run away screaming, and hope it doesn't ask you any more questions? 2- Use your Dark Charizard to have char-roasted wildebeest? 3- Double click the power chord? 4- Discover that is, in fact, a neurological disorder, whenever you start having severe seizures and the wildebeest turns into a frog named Jim who you went to high school with? 5- Just do more drugs? 6- Never play basketball with those guys again, because they clearly fucked you up?
Do you post ads on Craig's List ever? Have you ever met someone from Craig's List? Any funny stories?
I went out with a dude from Craig's List, wasn't really feeling him so when he asked me out again told him no. He then started begging me to give him a chance, and finally said I had ruined his life. Um, wow.
1) When you are having a blah day, what do you do to make it no so blah? 2) Are you the kind of person who dwells on bad stuff or the kind of person who tries to ignore it? 3) What do you think a friend is? 4) What is the next thing you are really fucking stoked for?
I was driving down the thru way and there was a mommy duck with her baby ducks crossing the road. I slowed down until they were out of my lane and then the car in the left lane hit the mommy duck. The car behind it hit the baby ducks. I'm pretty irrationally upset about this. I know they're just ducks but ugh it was tragic.
What's the last thing you were irrationally sad about?
so i've been feeling a little sick lately, and my doctor told me that i'm just not eating enough, and suggested that i make sure i always have something to snack on to keep me feeling better. i've already stocked up on crackers, fruit, and chips, but i need a little variety.
tqc, what are some good, light snacks that i can carry around with me?
At what fast food places in your area can you get non-traditionally cut french fries and what cut are they? (non-traditional as in crinkle cut or skin on or waffle or thick or whatever as opposed to the traditional straight skinny ones like at McDonald's or Burger King)
2) Do polls make you happy in that 'special place'? Y/N/M
3) Are you in the mood for a poll around now? Y/N/M
4) Which would be more fun right now? A poll about zombies or a poll about sex? Z/S
5) I like how polls generally supply the answers, and you as the audience merely have to click a box or two. Such simplicity in a post is perfect, how the poster can connect with the viewers in such an easy way. Shouldn't all posts require as little work? That being said, explain in 100-200 words exactly why you believe that democracy is properly granted in the poll form. Include no more than 4 and no less than 1 footnotes to back up your work.
Last week I signed a contract for an apartment for fall semester. I had to certify that I was a student in order to live there. I've decided not to attend this university anymore. Since I can't live there because I won't be a student, am I responsible for selling the contract or are they?
Would you think it was totally awesome if you like lived in a magical land where everything was edible, the streams ran with clear 7-up and champagne springs bubbled up out of gummy rocks, chocolate flowers bloomed in forests of broccoli, and it rained pizza?
I'm not big into videogames but I need some for a looong trip I'm taking. My favorites are the Phoenix Wright series, Katamari Damacy, and Pokemon, but I also really enjoy puzzles. What DS games would you recommend to me?
My roommate is leaving for Europe to spend three weeks traveling. It's his birthday soon so I wanted to get him something useful for his trip. Any ideas as to what I could get him? I believe he has the obvious, like a money belt, but maybe something that you wouldn't normally think to bring.
I just painted my doorframe, window sill and sideboards navy blue, when I thought I was painting them black. Yeah. Woops on me.
SO. I was going to paint my room a brown-y beige, with the black. But I don't think that will look so nice with the navy blue. And now I ask you: what colour should I paint my bedroom? (Something that goes with navy blue lining)
You're in a parking lot of a major store (a WalMart or a mall parking lot or something), and notice a small, bubbly-looking blonde toddler wandering around, edging closer and closer to the front of the parking lot and therefore all the traffic/cars at the storefront. You see a woman who could possibly be her mother, but you're not entirely sure, because she's glued to her cell phone and trying to put an all-natural-fillers seat cover into the cart. There are a couple of other families around with small children, several of them blonde. You say something softly like "Hey?" but the little girl doesn't notice your words.
What do you do?
ETA: There is the distance of three-quarters of a row of parking spaces between the alleged mother and this child, a distance that is rapidly increasing.
What are some awesome/weird active communities you recommend? Non-virgins: Will you tell me about the most mind blowing sex you ever had? Sims2 players: Will you post a screenshot of whatever you want from your game? All: Do you like your name? If not, what would you change it to?
Next week I am going to Florida with the mom, her boyfriend and his three kids. (As a side note, I don't really know him or his kids that well.) The original plan was to take two cars, mine and my mom's, so all the people and the stuffs would fit. The new plan is to take his truck, which will seat all of us. I'm not sure if I feel like riding with all of them for the four hours it takes to get there. So, tqc, should I drive myself, or should I suck it up and be a big girl and ride with them, which would obviously save gas money?
Where is your favorite place to vacation? Do you like to explore the hotels and stuff? Do you like sand?
Do I need to wear a bra with this dress or is it holding up my boobs well enough? I really really really don't want to have to wear my strapless bra today. It's one band and 2 cup sizes smaller than the bras I wear and I only use it when I really need to.
EDIT: I put darts in to make it a bit tighter in the chest. Here is how the dress fit before the darts.
EDIT2: OKAY OKAY. I put a bra on. But I'm not happy about it! lol
Where can I find a strapless bra in size 38F? Do they exist?
How much does it bother you when people ask you personal questions? At what point is it okay to ask people personal questions? Are you a big flirt? How do you feel about the type of people who flirt with just about everyone just because they can?
My boyfriends job sucks right now. He's a head cook and usually they have 3 cooks and one head cook per shift. We shall call the 3 cooks by the names: Joe, Jack, and John. Joe decides to go on vacation for a week. Calls in the day he was supposed to come back and says he isn't coming back. Everything was tight but my boyfriend, Jack and John survive.
Jack gets fired. Were down to John and my boyfriend. Things SUCK. Pulling double shifts and working close to 50 hours each in a week. Then they hire Jeff.
John decides to go on vacation last week while Jeff needs to go on vacation this week.
John comes to work today and decides to quit.
My boyfriend is working 70+ hours this week until Jeff comes back on Monday. Tomorrow was soposto be his day off, That's not happening. Double shifts= 3am - 7pm. Anything after 40 hrs a week is overtime. Obv. Boyfriend is looking at a nice paycheck but ugh. I just feel horrible. This has been going on since JANUARY. He's tired and cranky and I just wish he wasn't so overworked. what can I do to make him feel better about this shitty situation? Sure Jeff comes back next Monday but it's still going to be tight. tldr- what can I do to make my boyfriend feel better while hes stuck working over 70 hours this week? sex and whatnot isn't an option anymore because he's too tired to do anything these days.
My day sucked out loud, and then I got home to even more frustrations, the most pressing of which is having no beer.
Until my fiance comes home with a six-pack (or empty-handed, in which case I ask him sweetly to go back out and get some wheat sodas toot-sweet), what can you show/tell me that will make me feel better?
Okay, my itunes is skipping. The songs are skipping. They weren't last night, but they did a few weeks ago. It's always at different parts of the song. I only dl songs from itunes, not from other sites so they aren't just crappy files. Also, these are all songs I have played before with no problem, even from the ipod. WTF?! HAlp internetz. Is it my shitty laptop, or itunes?
My dad is the head of an international education program at a local college, as part of the program some of the students are in they have to spend the night at somebody's house because they couldn't find any where else (I guess) two of them will be staying with us Saturday to Sunday. I have to give up my room and sleep on the futon in the office which is slightly annoying but fine, however my dad just informed me that he and my mom have to go to a dinner with the president of the college Saturday night so I have to hang out with the two students...after working all day (8-5). I also am really introverted and most of the time just feel really awkward around people I don't know and that increases when I am forced into socializing with them. Would you be pissed off too?
The triceratops in my icon is one of many painted dinosaurs scattered around Pittsburgh. My specific part of Pittsburgh also has painted doors in various places. Does your city/town/village have anything similar? If so, will you post an example?
ETA: Here is a link for the dinosaurs, if you are interested.
1) what's up with my feet? We walked only 2 hours or so a day, I had tennis shoes, flip flops and arch supports in the tennis shoes, yet only my feet itch and hurt when walked on. Also, my ankle hurts.
2)worst thing kids have done to you?
I've been picked up and dropped and plus, a kid once stole my purse.[made him give it back!]
I'm looking for an article on latimes.com. As far as I can tell, the editorial "archive" only goes back to the 10th, and of course, what I'm after was published on the 9th. Am I missing something? Is there any way to find this article? Why is this website such a pain in the ass?
What are some good break-the-ice/get-to-know-you games that aren't painfully lame/overplayed? I'm going to be leading a group of 10-20 high school aged girls for a week later this summer and I need some good ideas for little games to play to start off our time together. I'd prefer stuff that isn't incredibly embarrassing/wouldn't be a huge turnoff for the shyer girls.
ETA: For those who don't care... When you are covered in bug bites, how do you relieve the itching? I tried taking a cold bath and slathering myself in calomine lotion, but I'm still ridiculously itchy.
Because I use laptops like a pimp uses his crack whores, I have lost a second one (along with all the files on it, AGAIN) to a bad motherboard. Now I'm stuck using a piece of shit Gateway laptop that doesn't even have 512 MB RAM. Ugh.
Can I really be trusted with another computer?
I'm done with college and won't be moving around as much, so I'm considering getting a desktop, since they seem more able to withstand heavy use. Does anyone have any recommendations? Which brands have you used that are pretty reliable? Which should I stay away from?
I like having baseball on the TV, not to watch but just for background noise. Any other sport bothers me, though. What sort of background noise (not including music) do you prefer?
