NEW QUESTION: last night i had a dream that i was part of a feel-good movie about people conquering societal norms. it was about a young boy who wanted to play softball on a girls' team. i was one of the extras in the stands. after the game thing, it turned into a zombie movie thing, and michael ian black as a zombie creature chased me through a treehouse filled with rope nets.
what was the last really really really strange dream that you had?
let's say you have straight hair. you find a curly strand. if that curly strand of hair gets pulled out or falls out, will it always grow back in curly?
edit: another question..my mom used to make me search for her gray hairs so she could dye them. haha. she has typical straight asian hair, but her gray hairs were always really, really thick and curly. why?
What's with all the relationship advice questions tonight?
What magazines do you subscribe to? I gt a cosmo renewal notice in the mail today even though I haven't gotten cosmo in over five years. strange.
What do you take for a headache? I take excedrin for daytimes but at night it would keep me up and so I took tylenol tonight but pfft.
How would you feel if you put so much thought and emotion into a birthday gift for someone you totally care about but when your birthday came around they didn't get you anything? This has happened to me from exes three times in the past so I'm putting on my crash helmet in preparation it to happen again this year
Do the number of questions asking "Did somebody get screencaps" that get them posted in the answeres make you wonder if somebody is sitting there screencapping everything asked here? Is somebody screencapping everything?
Like, seriously. You see these girls on the internet who are only slightly pretty with about 25,000 myspace friends or something. How do they get like that? What types of people become e-famous? Do they make themselves popular on the internet, or do people just flock to them?
I'm going to write a paper on it for my psychology class, so any info or comments that you can give me at all would be appreciated!
And also, I need a new laptop. Which do you prefer - mac or PC? And why?
Saturday was pretty much spent bbq'ing and watching football all day...and it was a good day for it, too. Every team I was pulling for won...most of them handedly.
Alabama slaughtered Arkasas. Florida thoroughly raped Tennessee. Clemson over SC State....WOAH!! LSU/Auburn was the "best" game in that it was the most exciting...and the fact that I was the only person out of about 12 at the party who was pulling for LSU over Auburn. (Therefore, after the game I had to taunt them all...just a little. )
What was your game for the weekend? Did your guys pull it off?
TQC, I have a dilemma. I recently found out how much my boyfriend's annual salary is. It is several multiples of mine.
He has been burned before by women who were only with him for his money. I am firmly in love with him, long before I found out how much he made. He does not live like he makes that much.
Now this information is bothering me. I have been told that I am being silly for letting it bother me. But now I am wondering if I will be able to separate the man from his money in my mind, because I am very materialistic.
How much of a disparity in annual earnings would you feel comfortable with? Would you start to wonder why the higher earner is even bothering with the other person?
Yesterday I found out that my roommate, in her nearly 23 years of life, had never once cleaned a bathtub. I say this is extremely weird, she says it's not at all weird. Who is right TQC?
What is even weirder is that she and I have lived in a house together for three years now and I found this out yesterday. How did she manage to scam me into always being the one who cleaned the bathroom for three years? Why did I not notice that?!
How was your weekend? What sort of exciting adventures did you get up to? Any pictures you want to show off?
Are you good or bad at giving gifts? Like, do you usually buy a gift that you know the recipient will love or do you usually lean toward gift cards because, even though you've known them forever, you have no idea what to get?
ETA: Have you started your Christmas shopping, are you close to starting, or will you buy everything right before? When do you usually start?
My friends child is five going on six and is having trouble learning to read. He'll read the first sound of a word and the give up/make up the rest. His self esteem is being impacted and he thinks every kid but him knows how to read. So, what are some good ways to help this little guy learn?
I applied for a job at an Urban Outfitters that isn't open yet. The inside basically has a pretty floor and a mess of construction supplies. How long do you think until it opens? Because they didn't tell me on the website and there are no people at the store.
Where would you like to take a weekend trip to? Are you going to do it?
One of my biffles just started a job today and I want to leave her a cute message since I can't go see her. Anything better than, "How was it? Call me when you get off. I hope you didn't gain ten pounds from tasting pastries"?
Does anyone know if you can play Spore offline? I am addicted, but I will be in an internetless vacuum later and want entertainment. Is anyone else addicted to this ridiculously cute/fun game?
How do you all feel about the Troy Anthony Davis case that's happening in my lovely state?
If you don't care, how's your Monday been so far?
For those of you not in the know: he was convicted of killing a cop 15 years ago and he's been on death row ever since, set to be executed this week. However, all but two of the witnesses have since recanted their testimonies, saying they were coerced, and many have implicated another guy in the murder. And in addition to that, there was never any physical evidence or even a murder weapon. THE POPE has asked Georgia to hold off on the execution, and now Al Sharpton's all up on it.
What is your favorite store to shop in for Halloween supplies and goodies? What can you say to persuade others in tqc why it's the best store EVER for the occasion? Besides candy, what is your favorite thing to shop for to prepare for Halloween?
Did anyone else see the View today, with (former) President Bill Clinton on?? In particular, did you see when he walked on stage and greeted the ladies? If so, did I see what I think I saw - did Elisabeth Hasselbeck actually refuse to shake his hand?
Edit to #2 - Nope! thanks to goop, she found the clip on youtube that shows she did the professional thing and shook hands with him. :)
What things do you carry in your purse everyday for "just in case" even though you rarely need it? nail clippers, tweezers, pill case with multiple different pills, diaper and travel wipes in case i forget the diaper bag, moist towelettes, tampons, condoms, hairbrush, zone bars in case i or my kid gets randomly hungry, a 20 in my wallet that i don't touch for emergencies
What SHOULD you carry for just in case but haven't gotten around to it? i used to carry coffee singles for just in case but i went through them and didn't replace them but they sure would have come in handy today. i also always thing i should carry a back up pair of undies and socks for just in case but maybe i'm just weird.
1. Who (what company) did you go through for your student loans? Who do you recommend? What do I need to apply? 2. Could I still receive a loan even if I don't have a co-signer (I'm 19 and my parents refuse to help me with tuition or co-signing for loans.) 3. How do I apply for government grants?
Any other info would help, too. I'm starting college in January and I'm basically in this alone.
Dear TQC, what does a written work reference look like? I didn't get one when I left my first job because I was all shy and intimidated and the new manager didn't like me. It's been several years now so i can't just call up and request one, they wouldn't even remember me. And my other jobs were more self-directed type things, and volunteer stuff.
Can you write me a reference? It was for working at a pizza place for eight months, primarily on the phone. I have a job interview tomorrow where I need to bring 2-3 work related references :S
Does anybody know what the "best" kegerator brand would be? I'm getting one for my husband for our 1 year anniversary and I am curious because there's a Danby at a local brew shop but I can find Edgestar ones online for like, two hunred bucks cheaper (shipping included). I just want to know how the brands compare.
two of my friends and i want to go travelling overseas somewhere for about 2-3 weeks in either december or january. we could probably manage a budget of $5000 each, give or take a couple thousand. any ideas? just to note, we live in australia.
what's the best holiday you've been on? please describe. why was it the best?
If the first person that you ever loved was "The One", what would your last name be today? if you are one of the lucky few that ended up marrying the first person that you fell in love with.. good for you! you don't get to answer this question. lol [if they are of the same sex as you.. *imagine* that you'd be taking THEIR last name]
When you pawn something, how do they figure out what to pay you for it? Is there a set percentage? Let's say something's worth $250 new, you pawn is slightly used; are they automatically only going to give you, say, a fourth of that? A third?
I don't know, I've never pawned anything before and I want to be prepared if they're going to give me a shockingly low price.
In a similar vein: Have you ever really need cash and pawned something? What'd you pawn? What'd you get for it?
Let's say I got a speeding ticket on Aug 1st, 08 on Long Beach, Ca PD jurisdiction and I can't pull up the record on either their website or on their phone system even though the 21 day wait stated on the ticket has passed. What should I do?
a. Fuggetaboutit! (and have it possibly come back to bite me in the ass later) b. Go down to the court house and have get it sorted out.
I'm leaning more towards b, but I don't know. I have until 10/28/08 to appear.
Also, I heard that if I try to request traffic school it will be denied because I was way over speeding (73 in a 45). Is this true?
What are you looking forward to purchasing for the ~fall~ season that is now upon us? WISH LIST TIME. pics are appreciated. or.. is there something that you have to attend soon that you have no idea what to wear to it?
