sorry, I know I'm pushing it tonight with all the questions. I had a music related question though, but my music major friend is fast asleep :/

Is there a term for when a line in a song is followed by music alone which has the same sound as the line and seems to "repeat" it?

If I'm not making sense, there is an example around 1:25 of Eleanor Rigby-

I recently read news about a former celebrity dying, and have been all wondering why no one seems to care or notice it. Today I found out the person died in 2006.
Has anything surreal or bizarre happened to you lately?
edit: OK!!! I'm a fan of the Who and read news about Kim McLagan, the (former) wife of the late drummer dying, and was rather amazed I saw nothing of it on LJ communities or message boards. Not really a huge celebrity so I didn't feel like explaining.

I'm sorry to come with such a weak question, but I don't know what to do.

Should I have tomato soup or "no chicken noodle" soup?

The "no chicken noodle" is basically chicken noodle vegetarian-style.

Name Meanings

What does your name mean?
( - if your name's not there, google 'name meanings' or something.)
Like what it means?

Mine means "supplanter". I never knew what it meant. My friend said that it meant "to take over". I just'd it and yeah, says it means "to take the place of (another), as through force, scheming, strategy, or the like."

I like. B]

Good Morning TQC

There was a show on's full episode player that I really really liked. It was only one episode and it was about this awesome dude in an uniform who cleaned up messes that we're 'too weird'? for normal humans to comprehend. He ends up recruiting some chick when she didn't pee her pants after being attacked by some monster.

ABC, being the dicks that they are, took it down and now I don't even remember the name.

Can you tell me what it is, TQC?

EDIT: TY TQC, you never fail me. It's The Middleman.

Do you believe in horoscopes?

Do you follow yours?

What's your zodiac?

Do you know your horoscope for today?

I do, to an extent.
I try to, unless I forget.
I'm a taurus.
My horoscope from Sunday, Aug 17th, 2008 -- Although you want to enjoy the pleasures of this summer day, you may have too many chores to complete before you can turn off your mind and relax. Your desire to have fun goes a long way now toward motivating you to get busy early in the day. But you might also be envious of those who don't have to work before they play. Convert your negativity into productive action, rather than letting it build inside you.


I'm going back to school in 2 weeks (thank god!!!!), and I picked the smallest meal plan in the world, 7 meals a week. I have a fridge and a microwave, but no stove or oven (since we gave up those things for having all single bedrooms in our apartment on campus). We bought like a toaster, a George Forman grill, and a hot plate, so I can definitely make food, I just cannot bake.

What kind of low calorie/low fat food should I stock up on that doesn't have a short shelf life? I bought like 30 boxes of Uncle Ben's brown rice, and now I'm stumped :X

TQC, I got my bloodwork back from my latest annual physical, and apparently all is well aside from the fact that I'm not immune to Hepatitis B, even though I've been vaccinated for it. Whatthefuck? How does that happen??

Also, can you tell me where the fuck all these bruises on my legs are coming from?? I'm clumsy but I seriously don't think I've walked into anything recently, and there seem to be more every time I look.

More Comparisons

Which one of these do you like better, and tell me why.

1. Quentin Tarrantino or Robert Rodriguez?

2. Boyz In Da Hood or Juice or Meance II Society?

3. Don't Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In Da Hood or the first Scary Movie?

4. The Simpsons or Family Guy?

5. The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air or A Different World?

My Answers:
1. Quentin. He has style and creativity that's unmatched.
2. To tell the truth, I haven't seen either of those 3 films in their entirety. I've only seen random bits and pieces of each. I just know they're similar.
3. Don't Be A Menace. The concept and idea of the whole thing was just beautiful, and the execution wasn't as crude. I love both though.
4. The Simpsons. It doesn't go as far with it's humor.
55. The Fresh Prince. It wasn't as dramatic and wasn't afraid to be unrealistic.

One of my housemates is being extremely annoying. He woke up, still drunk from the night before and was being loud and obnoxious in the living room. I'm in the living room, working on school stuff that needs to be finished before I start this week (we have internet, but not wireless and this is the only place I can use my computer). Housemate is ranting and raving, boyfriend takes him to McDonald's for breakfast.

Now they are back, boyfriend has made himself scarce but housemate is just chatting my ear off. I told him that I'm trying to do some work and I can't do it anywhere else (local libraries aren't open on Sunday) but he just won't STFU.

WHAT CAN I DO?? I'm losing my mind.

OK, so I realize these types of questions are asked all the time, and they're probably getting old, and blahblahblah, but humour me, k? Please.

So, TQC, have at it. Post something that you think would give me a snicker today.

What's the ideal relationship ratio?

I say 60-35.  Most of the time, 50-50, but when shit goes down, a level headed man must step up and take charge of the situation.

I hired a moving company to move my mom's furniture (it's a four-bedroom house) from San Antonio, Texas to Albuquerque, NM. Anywhere from five to ten people are going to be helping me pack up valuables the two days before they actually load the truck and head out.

The whole thing is going to cost about $10,000.

Is it proper etiquette to tip the drivers? What about the people who are there just to help pack? If so, how much would you tip each person? I don't want to be rude or cheap, but the move itself, plus storage costs are already taking a lot of money D;

 When was the last time you bit your tongue?
 What was it that you wanted to say?

Last night I was lighting candles on tables at sadwork, and this one woman was like "HUN THEY CAN REACH FARTHER THAN YOU THINK."  And then a man holding a baby came and sat in the chair I was standing by, so I guess she meant I don't realise that babies I haven't seen have longer arms than I would have accounted for and will play with fire because they're not being watched?  I wanted to tell the fat cunt not to call me hun and to blow out the candle if she didn't like it, just as she should have been blowing dick instead of making a hideous child.  

But instead I went and planned out how great life will be when I'm done training at happywork and can have lots of hours and quit that terrible place.

when i eat some fruit, namely pineapple and blueberries, my cheeks feel like the ocean. that's the best way i can describe it. it's like this strange cooling sensation. i was wondering if anyone feels like this?

kinda tl;dr, but read it anyway, bitches

I'm a substitute teacher, and I like to bring my own lunch to work everyday (unless the cafeteria is having pizza or something, in which case, hell yeah pizza!) as well as bring one to school so I don't have to spend more money than necessary, but I really suck at everything that involves a kitchen. I've been thinking about doing bento boxes for a while, but I don't know how to go about it, and I don't know if I'd even be good at it. Doing the sandwich/chips/drink thing everyday gets a little old, though.

Am I required to be a culinary expert to start making bento boxes?
For those who make them, do you have any tips or helpful sites? I plan on googling, obviously, but I'd like to get some opinions first.
Do I need to buy an especially cute little lunch box thing or what?

I've been browsing this site because it's for kids, and I'm an incredibly picky eater, but I doubt it'll be what I need.

Are you a Rocky Horror fan?

Have you heard of the plans for a remake?

Will you sign the petition that wants to protest it?

Yes I am. Yes I have. And I already did.

Almost cried when I heard about it.

EDIT #1: Notice that I said the petition wants to "protest" the movie. I never said it would actually stop the movie. I'm well aware that petitions are weak.

EDIT #2: TQC, in response to this entry, half of you are like PMS-ing and thinking that I'm losing mental stability over a Rocky Horror remake. I'm just annoyed, 'kay? Not freaking out here.

EDIT #3: Are you going to take the crying comment seriously? Yes. I'm sorry, I overestimated.

The true theory of our Constitution is surely the wisest and best, that the States are independent as to everything within themselves, and united as to everything respecting foreign nations. ... Let the General Government be reduced to foreign concerns only, and let our affairs be disentangled from those of all other nations, except as to commerce, which if merchants are left free to manage for themselves, our General Government may be reduced to a very simple organization, and a very inexpensive one -- a few plain duties to be performed by a few servants

Do you live in a state that's endorsed the Liberty Amendment?

Was Thomas Jefferson short-sighted, or would his assertion that the general government's frugal fiscal fashion be reserved for foreign concerns of commerce have taken the nation down a significantly different path than where we've been led today?

 I found out on Friday that I have a very important interview this Wednesday which will determine if I'm qualified to student teach in the spring semester. I have to submit a resume, and I can't think of the last time I actually had to CREATE one. I am using a template, but it turns out that my work experience and awards have pushed my resume to two pages. 

Should I print them on one page front/back, or should I have two pages? 

If you're a teacher, did you have to interview for student teaching? How was it? I feel like the school hasn't prepared us for the interview for student teaching, although they reference the actual school interviews. 

What's It Like Where You Live?

I want to move out of California, but the only other places I've ever been are Michigan and Oregon, and yet I don't want to make a big move and then realize that some perfect little paradise was sitting on the other side of the country (or world) and I never knew it existed.

So, that brings my question: Where do you live? Is it your paradise? Why? If not, do you know of a place that a nerdy nerd like me would love?

  • Does the place where you live have a developed coffee culture (or at least one really really awesome coffee shop?)
  • Does it have a nerd population? (Computers, world of warcraft, anime, SCA/renfairs, D&D, ect?)
  • Is there a comic book / gaming store? (Is it worth going too, or are there more then one?)
  • Is there a video game store, or a mall?
  • Is there a music loving population? A store where you can buy musical equipment?
  • Is it horse friendly, yet urban enough to keep one busy and comfortable?
  • Is the landscape pretty? Any natural monuments such as forests, mountains, lakes/rivers?
  • What's the culture like? (Old buildings, history, politics, ect?)
  • Is the population mainly liberal, conservatist, or neutral? Is religion a big part of it or is religion pretty much personal choice that people respect as private?

Does it have stuff for tech-junkies? (Raves, clubs that place dance music - not just hip-hop - electronic stores where you can buy enough stuff to make a computer from scratch if you wanted too?)

Any nifty things to do like museums, video game arcades (the adult kind too?), maybe paint ball wars, SCA, hiking trails, rivers or oceans, theme parks nearby, ect?

And how much does it cost to live where you do?

I'd love to hear all about the homes of people who live in places I have yet to explore, and if you have pictures or a local community website that's even better! Please tell me all about it.

 What is Aerosmith's 'cool status' these days? 

I'm confused, because when I mention my love for them, people react as if I just admitted to liking music I should be embarassed of, like 80s hair metal or the BeeGees (I do like the BeeGees, as it were xD), or as if they've completely forgotten Aerosmith existed.

Anyway, last I checked Aerosmith was loved pretty hard by rock enthusiasts. But I could be mistaken. I'm usually completely out of the loop.

My computer might mutiny and kill me if I don't clean it up somewhat, so I'm trying to free up some space on my hard drive. I was going to use the Windows Disk Cleanup thingie, and I noticed that there's a LOT of stuff in Temporary Files.

Does anyone know how I can tell what's safe to delete?

Windows says anything that hasn't been modified in the past week, so I may go with that guideline. I'm just a bit nervous because my computer came from my school and came with a ton of software pre-installed...which means I don't have discs for a lot of this stuff and if it gets messed up I won't be able to reinstall on my own. Presumably all that big name software was coded well enough that it isn't trying to use anything in the temp files, but I'm still hesitant. Some vague googling only yielded a lot of arguments about whether or not it's safe to delete stuff, so that didn't exactly calm my nerves.

Also, does anyone have any other recommendations for ways to clean up my hard drive? I'm sure there's stuff I'm missing that would help.

Sorry for the boring questions guys.

Totally flake on your friend, leaving them belongingless and alone
Tell your date what happened, and invite your friend along to a friendly (and possibly awkward) dinner
Cut you date short, and invite your friend over for a nice dessert/friend time to talk things over

Your SO was out with friends at a lovely museum, and they overhere a couple on a tour of the building, they are having their wedding ceremony at this museum. Your SO is filled with intrigue, and inquires about the venue. They are very interested in having a wedding there, even though you two aren't engaged. Your SO puts their name on the 2 year waiting list "just in case". You are at home, and you get a phone call from the venue asking to inquire about the "yourlastname, theirlastname" wedding. How do you react?

Immediately assume my SO is crazy and never speak to them again
Ask the person on the phone what the heck is going on
Get excited that your SO may actually be planning on proposing!
Call your SO and ask for an explanation
Never bring it up
Freak out on your SO, and then once you realized what happened, apologize.

You start dating a GORGEOUS person from work (assume no complications will arise from dating a coworker). You go on a few dates, take them to your place, have dinner, and you are having a fabulous time. You wonder why you've never seen their place, but don't question it. One night, you are staying late at work, and you walk by a door. You do a double take through the window, and see your SO sitting on a bed in underwear and a teeshirt playing video games IN your place of employment! You open the door, and ask for an explanation. They explain that they aren't crazy, and that they just live in a room at work because they never had time to go home before, and it helps financially. How do you react?

Dump them, right then and there. That's freaking weird.
Ask them if anyone knows about it, and offer to help them find a place of their own.
You're super excited! Now you can leave work, eat, go back to work, have sex, sleep, wake up, and work again! Save on gas!
Tell them you won't tell anyone, and never bring it up again...this probably isn't going anywhere anyway.
Inform your employer and have them fired.
