Have you ever had to give up a pet? What happened?
Do you have pets currently? Will you tell me about them?
( Collapse )
For those who like men...
Well, the same thing, except it's not a period.
I think I'd probably tell him to go see a doctor. That's not supposed to happen.
2. Have you ever been part of Internet drama?
The closest I ever got was when I made a post on ONTD Political that eventually ended up on stupid_free, but it was due to something someone else said.
Do you think boy/girl is merely attempting to get some? Or interested in seeing if a relationship could happen?
EDIT: I should just hit it, y/n?
What are your thoughts on this?
What should you be doing?
PS: For those who wish to know, I am a Man.
i would think it is not the motor since the fan part of the cooler runs just fine. it turns off, it turns on, it blows the air. it just ain't cool air some of the time.
anyone have experience w this? suggestions for things that my dad should look at? (please don't suggest an AC unit because that's a stupid thing to have in the desert--too expensive w our triple-digit temperatures. swamp cooler = cheaper/works better/only doesn't work when it's humid, which is rare.)
Should I choose a T shirt or DVD? I can't choose at all!
What gets you super hyped?
What's your class schedule?
What was the worse class schedule you ever had to deal with?
What are some of your favorite quotes from it?
Who is your favorite character?
One of mine is:
<i> You're on the pot.</i> Millie is like my second favorite character.
What's more of a turn-on?
Hottest girl-on-girl scene? I'm obviously not going to get them all, as I've never seen the L Word, so feel free to sprinkle in your own favorites as comments
Who is your "If they showed up at my front door, I'm gone" celebrity crush?
2. Has anyone ever told you that you look like someone famous? If so, who?
3. Do you open your potato chip bags at the bottom? If you don't you should.
If twins have a kid, what will the child look like?
Will it be indentical to the parents because they had identical DNA?
ETA: Yeah, I suck. I am not awake and forgot that identical would mean that they would be the same sex.
*blame shinga's post in tqc_drama for this....or blame the incest freak for her post last night. But enquiring minds want to know.
I was watching Maury the other day, and was wondering.. Lets say hypothetically there was this lady, and she was sleeping with twin brothers who have identical DNA. She gets knocked up. Can they still figure out who the father is?
Awesome or not?
1. Will you tell me about a co-worker you cannot stand?
2. If you go to school, what day do you go back?
3. I raved about my Chi straightener, and then it broke so I bought a Babyliss Pro, and then I raved about that straightener since I loved it more than my old Chi, and then it broke. What straightener should I rave about now? A real one please, none of that Conair/Revlon/Vidal Sassoon bullshit that just damages my hair and does not make it straight.
4. My SO is going on vacation with his family for a week starting Tuesday. We've never spent more than 2 days apart in the past 10 months. What do I do to distract myself from his absence? :(
Am I a freak of nature because of it? Has anyone else ~overcome~ this dislike and gone on to enjoy sex like a normal person?
Do you really mean it when you say you prefer girls with a bit a flesh on her, curvey whatever it is you say to girls?
Are you actually telling the truth or you just spewing shit?
2. Young TQC American ladies, if the draft were reinstated and women had to serve as well, would you become a soldier, get sent to prison (go rob some stores), or draft dodge up to Canada or Mexico?
why wont the clouds just stay in one spot forever?!
also, how does that new apple juice from tropicana or whatever taste? like biting into a crisp apple?
and should i wear underwear today?
Last night, Eric and I were taken out to dinner by his old boss to celebrate our recent engagement.
Four people: three appetizers, one salad, four entrees, a cheese course, two desserts, three cocktails and one very nice bottle of wine: $450 before tip. Wow - we had such a great time and I've never done anything like that. It was fabulous!
Please help, I don't want to mess it up.
Gershwin + Chopin = Fantastic pandora station so far, thank you.
When and how did the word "bitch" become such a highly charged insult?
What is your favorite euphamism for "making love" ?
ETA: From this, I'll definitely call him up next time I'm home. I was feeling bad, just wanted to make sure it wasn't just me.
Then a new doctor says he thinks the diagnosis is wrong. Completely wrong. And that the problem is actually surprisingly simple and he can fix you. COMPLETELY. You'll be able to walk, run, dance, jump, anything you want. You'll be as good as new! I mean, it'll require months of painful treatments and rehab, but still... FIXED.
How would you feel about this? Would you be pessimistic, optimistic, excited, scared, nervous, uncertain?
And if it did turn out to all be true, and he fixes you, what would be the FIRST newly-possible physical thing you'd do in celebration? (no, not sex, you've been able to have sex before so that's a non-issue)
2. What was the last book that you read that you hated?
3. Also are there any lj communities specifically for ranting about books you've read that you hated?
what's your opinion on this video?
/tl;dw ~ this lady breastfeeds her kids, one stopped at 5, the other hasn't stopped and she's 8.
What issue has the most effect on your vote for president?
Who are you voting for?
Who do you hope your candidate chooses as their VP?
How many more questions can be asked about the election?
How many days until you move back to school, college TQCers? Excited yet?
I'm finally going to be done (for good! forever!) with my shitty fastfood job on August 17. I'm trying to decide whether or not I want to be honest or keep mum about a hurtful nickname my coworkers have given a Russian guy who doesn't speak much English.
There are four Russians and one Ukrainian working at Micky D's this summer - they come over for seasonal work during tourist season - and the only guy and only one working in grill, Vladimir, has attracted the hostility of everyone else for no particular reason. They've decided to call him "Vulva", and neither he nor any of the other Russians/Ukrainian know what the word means, as their English is rudimentary at best. Vladimir knows so little English that even if I wanted to, I doubt I could tell him what his insulting nickname means.
I've been debating telling his girlfriend, Alla, exactly what his nickname means, because it feels dishonest to let people be so horrible to him in a way he can't understand. That said, it'd probably just make him miserable and angry - and the other people on crew wouldn't necessarily quit calling him Vulva, anyway.
So. Should I find a way to let the guy know before I quit, or is ignorance bliss in this case?
First, Morgan Freeman survives an alleged 'attempt' on his life in traffic in Memphis. Then Bernie Mac dies. Then Isaac Hayes dies in Memphis. What should black celebrities do?
I'm in Scotland and ever since February this year (Earlier for some) there has been so many repairs needing done in my flat. The door lock is held on with tape, there is a leak behind the toilet, the smoke alarm doesn't work, the shower doesn't work, the boiler is needing replaced and mainly, the washing machine is broke.
I have asked my landlord time and time again about the washing machine (I do want them all done but I don't have the time to handwash all my clothes and linen and I am nowhere near a laundrette, so the washing machine is priorioty right now) and every time he says 'I'll be in touch in a few days' or 'I'll get someone sent out' This is on the occasions that I can actually get in touch with him.
I did owe him some rent money, which I am now paying up so I didn't chase it too much as I was in the wrong as well.
But now I'm getting damn pissed. What can I do? I keep calling and asking and he keeps delaying it all. It's getting rridiculous now.
Any help much appreciated.
Why do you think someone would eat 6 rolls of tp a day?
What is the closest blue item to your left hand?
i really need new music. i'm exhausting all my favorite bands and am going to be sick of them soon, which they just don't deserve. i listen to indie/britpop kind of stuff most of the time.
and while i'm sure this gets asked often, i'm curious:
2. who is your favorite band, or the first one of the bands you really love that comes to mind?
Would you volunteer?
Would you fear retaliation from the attackers/ their families?
Suppose your name/address are listed online (easily googled, due to your profession). Would you still sign up?
1. douglas coupland
2. margaret atwood
3. the twilight series
1. ugh. and that tv show was horrendously bad.
2. oryx and crake pissed me off more than any book ever, except for maybe girlfriend in a coma
3. i hate to love it and love to hate it, in that order :(
a. Husband works and wife stays home; they have no children
b. Wife works and husband stays home; they have no children

what if you had to stay at one age? which age would you pick?
if you wouldn't want to live forever, how long would you like to live?
I already have Dont Let The Sun Go Down On Me and American Pie (The Day The Music Died).
I as very hungry and in the mood for some Japanese food, so I ordered a chicken teriyaki bento box, since it seemed like a good deal for 9 bucks. Salad, miso soup, chicken teriyaki, california roll, rice, and some veggies = woohoo! So, it just got delivered, and the size and portions strangely resemble lunchables.
1. What was the last thing that disappointed you?
2. Is it usually so difficult to find the tofu in your miso soup?
Inspired by the raw fruit/veggies question down below:
3. Is there something specific in oranges that make it the only fruit I am not allergic to?
4. I am trying to enjoy my "lunch" and these 3 women keep tapping excitedly on the glass of my job (I work at a real estate firm), pointing at different listings we had posted up. They will not stop tapping. It is giving me a headache. Should I say something?
How do you organize your shoes?
What's your favorite office supply?
Why does this hurt so much?
What's the longest its taken for you to "move on" from a break-up? shortest?
NOW WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO?
Earlier this morning, I locked myself out of my bedroom in my house However, I realized that the deck next door is pretty close to my window, so if the window was open I could maybe crawl in. After trespassing on my neighbors deck, jumping over (I'm on the second story), and slithering onto my bed headfirst with my legs sticking out in broad daylight... Success!
2. Are you watching the Olympics? What's your favorite sport/game you've seen so far?
Yep. I've been lovin' the beach volleyball for some reason this year
3. Do you tend to have plans for Sunday, or do you keep it as a lazy day? Have you been productive today?
I'm lazy as fuck, so every day I don't have to get out of bed I kinda don't. I'm still in bed right now. It's glorious.
4. Who is the one person you see the most often by choice (AKA parents don't count if you still live at home, not much choice there. SOs you live with do count, you chose to live with them)? How long can you go without seeing them?
My best friend I see 6 out of 7 days a week in general. I can go 6 days alone without her. She's going to be gone for 12 days and I quite literally don't know what I'm going to do with myself. :(
Toying with the idea of joining one, just broke up with my gf
2. If you live in the U.S.--actually, even if you don't, but please specify--how many states have you visted? Why'd you go?
3. Name ten places you'd like to go before you die and any particular reasons.
WHO DO YOU THINK WILL DIE NEXT?
Will you please stop posting about them already?
If you got terminated, did they leave you stranded in any strange town? If so where and under what conditions? I met this one guy who said he worked for the fair and they fired and left him stranded in my hometown.
2 To put down the toilet seat?
3 Not to touch me after not washing their hands and not putting down the toilet seat?
4 Do you wash your hands & put down the toilet seat?
5 Do you like processed cheese?
Why can't Georgia just let South Ossetia be part of Russia like North Ossetia is? (Or be an independent state?)
Is it because they want S. Ossetians' taxes?
Is it because there's people in S. Ossetia who do still want to be a part of Georgia?
Because personally, I'm Australian and if suddenly northern Queensland wanted out, I'm pretty sure we'd all be fine with that and there'd be a solution worked out without bombs. Northern QLD would probably even throw a housewarming party and we'd all be invited and have to bring houseplants.
i have corn, peas, cucumbers, and some other veggies, so what else should i add? (srs & non srs)
what's in your favorite salad?
what are you eating for dinner?
Are there cons to your parents seeing you as an adult?
I ask the last one because ever since I moved out on my own far away and got a good job and a place of my own, my mom treats me like an adult, which is theoretically great, but now she dumps all of her problems on me and sometimes I just plain don't know how to handle that. D:
Is there something in your life you wish you could change?

Running water & a nearby bathroom and shower

If you have enough balls to admit you do, what does it smell like?
( Collapse )
If so, when you come across something potentially interesting but with a NSFW cut, what do you do?
Make sure no one is looking and then click? Try to remember to go back to that page when you get home?
What is the last thing that you got ridiculously giddy over?
I can't get anyone in my family to download Skype. :(
Basically I'm planning and booking my trip in the UK right now. It turns out I have an extra night outside of London I hadn't factored in.
I am spending a day and night in each city and am going to go to: Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Cardiff, Cambridge, Oxford.
Which on these places should I stay an extra night? Or should I go somewhere else not listed? Opinions?
ETA: I should probably also mention that I am going north later on. And then to France and the rest of Europe.
2) Someone offers you a million dollars in hundreds. Catch is that you have to fully lick each and every bill. Every bill has been in circulation for at least 2 years. Would you do it?
THE ICE CREAM TRUCK JUST CAME BY!!
I should go get overly expensive ice cream, y/n?
My crush has just told me that he is moving in to a place the next street up from me. This is exciting news.
What I want to know is, what are the foreseeable pros and cons to living so close?
If deaths come in threes, who are you afraid will be #3?
I'm very concerned for Paul Newman, BB King, and for some strange reason Bea Arthur. *clings*
~or is it just my comp?
what do you think of fake designer bags and people who use them?
Why are women whores?
Grape jelly, yes or no?
what do i pick? (:
Are LJ comments confusing to you? Do you understand that huge cluster of them? Does your computer have the capacity for LJ?
And on a mostly unrelated note, how would you feel about yet another TQC spinoff that's sort of like metaquotes, for posting LOLworthy comments from TQC?
1. Do you keep dating them, or drop them on the spot?
Have you ever sold your text books online? Is it easy or difficult? Is there anything I should watch out for?
2)Tomorrow, should I do an The Office marathon or play a zillion hours of FFX?
3)Can you dive?
4)Do you enjoy watching gymnastics?
Yes. I also enjoy watching figure skating and beach volleyball.
How much do you love JT, TQC?
Also, I'm moving in 2 days and can't motivate myself to pack. How do I motivate myself to pack? Srs and nonsrs.
No, seriously though:
If you had millions of dollars, would you seriously save it, spend it all, or invest it?
Wouldn't it be cool if you had a room full of dollar bills that you could swim in?
If they were old dollar bills, like the disgusting crinkly ones you get at the gas station, would you swim in it? Or would you decline?
How would you feel?
Would you rather work full time at a job you hate or starve?
Do you think deleting entries should count as deleting every comment to the entry, and be punished as such?
i move into the dorms in a week. i think i've solved my loft bed dilemma... sort of. we're going to use the base head/foot board set to loft one bed, and then i guess get a plain bedframe to put the other bed under it at a 90 degree angle. yes, we could bunk them, and we will if we have to... but the loft bunk thing is just cooler, y/y?
so this (not my picture) is what the loft will look like when we've set it up, sans bed on the bottom. how on earth is this stable? i've seen several other lofts on photobucket and flickr that all have some kind of bracer bar in the back for the bottom set of supports. i don't think we'll have that in the dorm, so... what d'you suggest? the only thing we've come up with is taking a 2x4 and getting some kind of screw-on clamps to attach it to the bottom supports. we aren't allowed to drill or nail into anything.
as a side note... who watched synchronized diving?
DID YOU KNOW THAT BERNIE MAC IS NOT A SANDWICH?
Should I make chicken alfredo or pizza for dinner?

If I'm going to try and catch up on pop-culture what three TV shows should I watch?
What three bands/artists should I know at least one song from?
What movie that is currently out in theaters should I watch?
What three novels should I read?
What video game should I play?
;_; GOODNIGHT SWEET PRINCE? ;_;
2. How much time each day do you spend doing nothing really ... just thinking? (so no internet, no sleep, no eating, no socializing)
example Devendra Banhart's Chinese Children
ALSO, IF YOU FREEZE FIRST BABY AND TAKE AN EGG/SPERM FROM IT TO MAKE A SECOND BABY WITH A DONOR PARENT EGG/SPERM AND LET THAT BABY GROW UP THEN THAW OUT THE FIRST BABY AND IPREGNATE THE SECOND PERSON WITH IT SO IT GIVES BIRTH TO ITS OWN MOM OR DAD, DOES IT LOOK LIKE AN IDENTICAL TWIN EVEN THOUGH IT HAS NO TWIN ???!!
My money is on Oprah and Cher.
1. The bridesmaids dresses are going to be black, so I feel like I can't wear my standard black dress to the wedding (I'm not a bridesmaid). I haven't been to a fall/winter wedding in forever. WTF does one wear that isn't black and is appropriate to a fall/winter wedding?
2. My husband is a groomsman. He called his brother to ask about tux rental, and my BIL said that the tuxes would cost $130, but that his friends were complaining that it was too expensive. My BIL is going to look and see if he can find them cheaper. If your boyfriends/husbands/dads whatever have rented tuxes recently - is that about a normal price?
2) The past six months or so I’ve noticed that when I eat certain raw fruits and vegetables my lips start stinging and I get a prickly feeling in my throat. It happened with melon today and a piece of lychee yesterday. It’s happened with raw carrot and certain kind of nuts and also with soya chocolate flavours pudding. Am I becoming allergic to fruits and vegetables? Why would that happen? It’s not bad enough to make me stop eating anything but could it get worse?
So my birthday's in a week and in a weird twist, I want to make cupcakes for my friends for it. What are some of your favorite cupcake recipes of awesomeness?
Also, who's just a picture to burn in your life?
how to combat?
Should I go to community college and get my TEE, so I can go to university?
"Did it hurt? When you fell from heaven?"
"Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk by again?"
"I lost my number. Can I have yours?"
What do you do?
Has this ever happened to you?
Or have you ever used a very lame pick up line? (And if so, what was it?)
How do you suppose you'd react in this situation?
What's been your favourite good product? Your favourite bad one?
It's one of the few shows my entire family can agree on, so we watch it a lot. Of course, it's way better watching the completely incompetent inventors then the good ones.
Do any of you think Peter Jones is hot?
If you've gone from working in team-oriented jobs to an independent office job, how long did it take you to adjust? I know I'll "get it" eventually but people are getting impatient with me in the meantime.
What should I do should he decide to go through it anyway?
Would you like some peach pie?
Do you know what song I'm talking about?
