how late will you be up?
If The Daily Show got a new host, would you watch? (Let's say it's an actor you're neutral about.)
Do you like Kristen Schaal (on TDS, not including Flight of the Conchords or anything else)?
Did you get anything back?
How much does it cost you?
Also, would you let Justin Timberlake stick it in you?
Have you ever met (or ARE YOU?!) a girl like this Rachael chick?
She's so fucked up and as much I hate to admit it, I can see myself doing some of the things she does.
I happened across this one (someone posted it on a "cheer me up?" post) a month or two ago and I LOVE it.

Can you actually taste the difference?
Coke. Yes, absolutely. I don't know how people can think they taste the same, to be honest.
I want my daughter to have good memories of me when she gets older. Will you tell me some little things that your parents (or any important adult in your life) used to do for you when you were a kid that made you feel really loved?
- Do you go back and read your friends' old LJ entries? Do you comment on the interesting ones, even if they are really old?
- Yes I do, and no. I've never deleted a past LJ entry. I keep my LJ to have something to look back on (though it's become more of a place to post game reviews and other interactive things than a place to share my thoughts... probably a good thing).
- I haven't, but I've had someone do it to me. I suddenly got a bunch of comments on year old posts. It was very random, a bit touching and a bit embarrassing all at the same time.
How do you feel about fake plants?
How did you get to school as a kid?
When you update your personal journal, do you fill out the location, mood, and music sections?
How about cut off a finger?

If not, anything you wish you could have done?
mine: I've got to be up in an hour to take my mom to the hospital for back surgery, so why go to sleep now?
My birthday is at the end of November. I don't really care about weather - I can always wear pounds of wool - but I'm looking for kickass ideas for where I should go. I'm considering Canada because I've never been to Canada - and also I could drink. Which would be amazing since 20 is just a reminder that you aren't 21 yet.
Do you have any kickass roadtrip vacation ideas?
Should I go to Canada, y/n? Why?
If I should, where in Canada should I go?
ETA: I'm on the West coast.
I am 19, I'm in college, my mom doesn't have insurance so I cant be on any plan of hers, uhhh....I don't know what else I could add.
what do I do guys?
(ETA: and I live in Wisconsin, if that helps)
I'm a little scared. I have absolutely no idea what it could be from. Most of the specks are black, some are grey. They're usually on the right hand side of the stovetop, by the little knobs, and then also on the counter next to it between the stove and the microwave. There's also a lot of them on that thing that hangs over the stove. I don't know what it's called.
We also compared the specks to pepper and noticed that the colors are a bit different so I think we've ruled pepper out.
If it makes any difference, we live in a little house in Maui and the windows and doors are open all the time. It's incredibly windy here and sand and dust get blown in constantly, but the counter in that specific little spot is the only place we've found this.

How do you personally get more LJ friends?
With the start of my new job, I want to document my travels in the form of a blog. I'm going on the rest of the Jonas Brother tour, and it should make for some really interesting stories. I don't know how many of my old LJ friends still read/update, so I figured I'd come to TQC first to see what you guys do when your journal is in need of a pick-me-up.
I'm taking an online calculus class, and I have a homework assignment due tomorrow at 11.45 pm, and two tests due the 24th (over the same stuff, one's just a harder version of the other) due at 11.45 pm on the 24th. My original plan was to do the homework tonight, take tomorrow off, and do one test the 23rd and one the 24th. However, I slept for about two hours last night and I'm about to go work 8-6. My throat hurts, and I'm just not wholly sure I can do what I need to do properly for this homework assignment when I get home from work. (I work 10-6 rest of the week).
Should I man it up and do it tonight anyway (homeworks have two submissions of the same series of problems, and I can get help on them, it'll take me about two hours the first time and maybe 30 minutes the second, if I have to do the second), or skip tonight?
What do you think about this?
what should i eat for lunch?
apologetic shrimp ramen
sad chicken ramen?
What's the best place/country that you've ever traveled to?

Q for women who've been pregnant:
did you know you were pregnant before the actual test reults of a HPT/doctor visit?
How far along were you when you just KNEW?
do you remember the first few weeks of pregnancy and what your body was doing during this time?
update: for whatever reason, I feel better about this all after your posts. thank you :)
What should I do? What would you do?
So I was browsing, and I saw someone had asked something about traveling to Canada, and I was inspired to start planning my mini-vacation that I want to take in October. It seems as though Canada would be the best (economically) for my SO and I to venture to, and by the way my campus calendar is panned out, I will have 4 nights to stay there at the end of October. So now, all you Canada experts:
1. What city in Canada should I go to? I need one with lots of activity and parties and fun times!
2. Are there any clubs/places you would suggest I hit up?
3. Is it ridiculous to fly in from Philly to Canada instead of just road tripping? I really like planes, so if it's only slightly ridiculous, I'll still consider it.
4. Where do I get good airfare/hotel prices?!
5. How long does it take to get a passport?

If no, what's your favorite season and why?
Mine is fall. I love crunchy leaves and sweaters.
Like, my grandparents died when I was 1 and 2, so I didn't realize what was happening. My uncle died recently, and I'm getting hit with all these thoughts of, "Oh my god, he's not coming back."
recently? live near?
how are you today, TQC?
What's bugging you?
What's making you happy?
Also, who wants to invite me to TQC chat? :-D
(My screen name: rainbowcarnage3)
1) What's the best way to pack clothes (without getting huge "wardrobe" boxes)? My method I'm thinking will work best is getting those space-saver bags instead of putting them in boxes.
2) What are those car bag tote things called that give you extra room and are strapped to the top of the car? Also, do these things require you to have a roof rack to work?
3) Any tips for driving 8ish hours with cats in the summer heat? Obviously I'll have the AC, the music low and drive maybe 60 mph because of the precious cargo. I have those doggy training pads for accidents they might have in their carriers, plus water and some food.
4) What did it cost you to move for the first time? Include things like utility deposits/utilities, first month's rent/damage deposit/last month's rent, and pet deposit if it applied to your situation.
5) Would it cost a ridiculous amount of money to hook up a trailor's plumbing to plumbing at another house (the house being mere feet away)?
6) Any horror stories about moving that you'd like to share?
7) Any tips to protecting wood floors/carpets from possible spraying from cats? Any tips getting cats to get along because they're forced to live together for the first time (I've read all the website, so I probably already know the standard info; just wondering if there's any unusual information that might be useful).
8) Best way to mail 2'x3' and smaller paintings to myself?
What's the oddest looking couple you've ever seen?
What do you do on your night out on the town?
Me: Maybe find a poetry shop or coffeehouse to hang out at. Or just cruise all over town with no particular destination in mind.
However, I have to return there next semester to clear off some failures (yeah I know bad me). I know for my junior/senior year I will definitely be transferring to a school closer to home.
My conundrum is what to do for Spring '09 semester. I would rather just come back home, take credits at a community college and transfer those over to my new school in Fall '09. My mom thinks it more logical for me to just finish off my year at the school I am currently attending and then transfer over in one package.
I'm on the fence about both options, so I ask you TQC: Should I transfer mid-year or should I stick it out for the whole year?
On a drink?
Any particular times you can recall where someone tried to overcharge you like crazy for something?

Are there any marriage name change pitfalls I should be aware of?
You're attending the wedding of a close friend. Your friend is a borderline nervous wreck, who wants everything to be perfect. She's being such a perfectionist, that even the slightest thing out of place would ruin the whole event for her, and crush her. After the wedding, there's the reception. You have to go to the bathroom, and are in a stall. In the stall next to you, someone is finishing up after taking a smelly poop. They walk out to the mirror, but you hear no water run. Someone comes into the bathroom and says "Chris, we have to finish. Hurry". Chris rushes out of the bathroom, without washing his/her hands. Later on, you walk past the kitchen, and you see someone handling the entree with the name tag Chris. At this point, no one's been served. You're not sure if Chris washed his/her hands in the kitchen after they exited the bathroom, but they are handling the food. Your friend is extremely high strung and probably can't handle a major episode. What do you do?
This is a question about confrontation. Look within. Would you really walk up to someone and ask if they have poopy hands, or order someone to wash their hands?
I have a really bad cough, and the recommended 10ml 3-4 times a day just isn't cutting it, so I'm taking 10mls every two hours or so. Less when in bed though.
I have two types and the active ingredient in one is ammonium chloride, and the other pentoxyverine citrate. The former sounds particularly scary.
Any decent home remedies for coughs?

The money fairy just slipped $5000 under your door and has enclosed a note informing you that you get to go and buy yourself ONE super gift!
What are you going to get?
EDIT: OK, the question is what GIFT, ONE GIFT, not a down payment on something, or gift card, or paying off a student loan, you cannot share it with anyone. I am trying to look into your imagination and see what one crazy gift you would like that you probably couldn't afford otherwise. answer again if you like =D
But my question is... how far is it to copyright infringement? Say I knitted some miniature scarves in Harry Potter House colours. I can't get sued for that, surely?But would it make a difference if I said "could be used for your Harry Potter dollhouse!" Or, what if I made a robot that sort of looked like Marvin the Depressed Robot? Or a pocket sized futuristic laser weapon? Or a police phone booth? How much am I allowed to suggest that it could be used in a themed miniature?
And then there's stuff like trademark infringement. You're apparently not supposed to use actual products in your dollhouse, so your dolls must drink cola, not coca cola. Does anyone else think it's completely ridiculous that people can get sued for this? It's clearly not going to be confused with the real thing. I suppose if someone really wanted to, then the people making 1:12 scale models of 1940s radios or whatever could be sued just because they represented a real life item.
How it happened is not exactly clear, but you're standing at the edge of a very high cliff - a fall will easily kill you. Holding on for dear life at the end are your mother and father. You only have the strength to pull up one of them - who do you reach for and pull to safety? (yes, they're both alive, no you can't save both)

Where did you have it? (city/state)
I have been feeding birds for a few weeks now and my lawn has become quite the hot spot.
Well, I was out there picking up from the bbq last night and while filling the bird feeders I noticed a small fish. And then another one. And then ANOTHER one! 3 small fish in my back yard! And what makes this strange is that I don't live very close to water. Weird.

2. Do you like to shop at Urban Outfitters?
3. Whats the most you have ever spent on one thing? What was it?
If I accumulated a library fine as a minor, will it get sent to collections? for my parents, or to me? I am pretty sure I was 17 when I checked out the books. I just don't feel like paying $25 in fines so I can check out books in the county I am moving out of.
Edit: What is a good, clean, unobtrusive way to label my DVDs as my own? I want to use them on the shared TV in my apartment (1 girl I know, and 2 people I don't yet), but I don't want someone to say "Oh, this is mine" or for them to get stolen.

i live in Canada and watch a lot of daytime television. i basically wake up at 2pm every week day just so i can watch The Mom Show on Slice. but it's not on anymore!! where did it go?? are they just on vacation or something? it's been like two weeks and stupid Buy Me has been on instead. i miss this show a lot :(
if you have no idea what i'm talking about, which shows that were not designed for your demographic do you watch and enjoy? (ie. you're 30 and love Dora the Explorer).
We're not picky eaters really, though chicken is totally out (I'm pregnant and it makes me sick). Other then that, nothing really.

My favorite aunt just had a baby. While I'm not all about babies, I do love my aunt dearly. I want to do something for her to make her life a little easier in this transition process. We live three hours apart. I'm going to go visit soon.
For those of you that have had babies, what do you wish people would have done or not done whilst you were adjusting to having a new baby? I was thinking of making her some food and packaging it in single servings for easy freezing and prep. I'm afraid everyone else has done this though.

As of now, I am planning on going to grad school in Fall 2009 in a different city. I'd also maybe like to travel prior to that, but that is nothing beyond a daydream. I would absolutely never abandon a cat- I would alter my plans in order to keep him/her.
Is getting a cat now a horrible idea? For those of you who have apartment hunted with cats, how much more difficult did it make the process?
Any good wedding stories to share?
My older sister got married on Saturday and I'm in the wedding spirit.
2) Firefly or Dr. Who?
3) Did anything pleasant happen to you today?
To clarify: the procedure was on Friday, and before they started she told me she'd see me for a follow-up appointment in two weeks. Then I went under the anesthesia, and when I woke up no one who had been involved in the surgery came to talk to me and tell me what they'd seen or anything. I went home, and assumed she'd call later that day or today to set up the follow-up and tell me what the diagnosis was. But she hasn't called, and I can't get through to her secretary to make the appointment. I'm feeling a little pissed off... am I right to feel pissed off?
The procedure was to diagnose a urological problem. Nothing life-threatening, just very, very irritating.
How old are/were you?
2. Gentlemen, do you mind having sex with a woman who is having their period?
Did she not like our answers?
Yet again you're on the edge of this cliff, a fall could very easily kill you. You can save one person/group, but not the other. Weight/size/stature is not an issue. Who you gon' save? Round 1: a group of Catholic schoolchildren, age 5, or a random misfit group of public school (not inner-city) Kindergarteners. (same age for both sets)
Jim Davis (garfield) or Charles Schulz (peanuts)?
An acne-ridden 15 year old gamer, or his school's 18 year old prom queen?
A college student holding onto a beer can and loving life or a nervous-looking student teacher who was on her way home from her first day and hated it?
The teacher you had when you were 6 or the (english) teacher you had when you were 16?
An old couple, the old woman shouting to save her husband, her husband shouting to save her
What's your favorite Beatles song?
Do you think it's ethical to price-gouge the gastrointestinally distressed?
She just had the first ultrasound. The Dr estimated her pregnancy as being 14 weeks. Now the ultrasound says 16 weeks. That could mean the difference of the baby being his or not. She thinks he will high-tail it if he ever knows she had that one night stad, even worse being it MAY have poduced a child he thinks is his.
1. What would you do?
2. Is there a way to have a prenatal paternity test without him knowing?
3. How accurate is the number of weeks given by each person (OB vs. tech)?
2) Did you have to go to every class and read every book in college?
3)How many hours did you work a week?
from 4 to 12, but usually 10.
First was an old DOS game, a platformer where you played a female werewolf and could switch between human and wolf forms as necessary.
The other was, I think, an Atari game, and all I know is that you played an owl for at least part of it (I only ever saw it on a demo screen but it looked awesome, the owl was flying in front of some trees).
Not terribly specific but does that ring any bells with anyone?
Do you have any tattoos?
ie. buy mentos & coke to make fountains! buy different sodas & mix it & see if you can guess what's in each mixture. play board games! have a picnic in the park (& play on the swings of course).
Do you like them personally?
Do you like their books?
We stayed in Kihei and visited quite a few places on the west coast...

Long story short:
Should I stick with my current major of education, where I still have three years left and am not as happy as I could be?
Should I change my major to pastry arts/culinary, which is something I really enjoy but am relatively new at?
Help me decide my future! :p
anyway, we found this one quote that went like this:
"Wondering if you're entitled to the deep sense of loss you feel when a celebrity you admire dies."
we found it funny 'cause we'd just come out of the theater talking about how sad we were over Heath Ledger dying and this being his last movie, and how we'd both had that thought in the back of our minds.
my question is, do you think we're entitled to grieve over someone we loved or admired through their artistic medium but never knew? i'm still extremely sad over Heath Ledger dying but i'm never sure if i have the right to be.
generally speaking, how would this make you feel?
specifically, would you try to find your current significant other? if so you find him or her, do you get it on with their oldness? if you don't have one right now just pretend.

Like, do you eat cookie dough, or make jelly and then just drink it before it sets, (or even just eat the jelly powder?) etc.
And I'm a New Zealander, so for you Americans/others who fall into similar linguistic groups, by 'jelly', I mean 'jello'.
If so, what brand do you use?
How long does the color last?
I'm going to dye my (dark blonde) hair a sort of burgundy/auburn shade. Apart from not washing my hair every day once it's dyed, do you have any secret tips to keep the color in my hair longer?
