I have Allstate.
The Cubs choked ... again.
tonight i was at the store and in front of me in line was my foster dad from 2 years ago when i lived in foster care. it was really awkward and i kinda freaked out. i was really nice and said hi and stuff and asked him how he was, but what i really wanted to say was "thanks for giving a shit about us after we left asshole" i kinda wished i did but im glad i didnt.
Would you please list the series you've seen?
Would you tell me which were your favourites?
Since apparently only non-anime watchers are on TQC right now, what is your favorite popsicle flavour?
Do you have a favorite M&M colour?
TQC, I had a dream last night that I was singing very loudly and equally as horribly in my car at the world's longest stop light with my windows down and the lady next to me kept giving me dirty looks. i can't remember if she actually said anything though, I woke up feeling embarrassed.
What would you have done if you were her?
What song will you loudly and shamelessly rock in your car? My ex and my friend and I used to always have to be ridiculous when we heard Wham!'s Wake Me Up (Before You Go-Go) I should have assumed he preferred peen to vag then, y/y?
I was in the liquor store and saw white grape flavored vodka, would this taste like more alcohoic wine? What flavor vodka do you drink?
How impressive are you? Will you impress me?
This is good, because one of my current housemates is a drama llama. Now, I'm trying to decide which day to move.
Considering the following removalists' rates, against the fact that I want to get away from Drama LlamaTM asap., which day do you think I should move?
Saturday: (The previous girl moves out of my new room.)
I can get the day off work Mon or Tues with no problems.
[Edit:] Yeah yeah, you're right, Tuesday's the best idea. *kicks dirt* Goshdarnit TQC, you're just so sensible...
If you had to choose one favourite song ever what would it be?
Are there any stereotypes that really make you angry?
What about ones that are just hilarious?
How is your country stereotyped?
What do you suggest I do with four Peace Corps shirts I still own (two of which are polos)? I could probably get away with wearing the tshirts, but only a tool will walking around in polos for an organization they are no longer a part of.
Does it piss you off when people end sentences in prepositions?
What is your favorite mnemonic device?
eta: they were all going to my spam folder. what the fuck?
My childhood songs were "You Are My Sunshine" and "I Will", by The Beatles, which my mom used to sing to me, and Elton John's Madman Across the Water, which my dad used to play for me.
my ex's friend wants to trade his truck + the rest of the loan for my ex's car. the truck is worth around $6k, according to this. my ex's friend took out a loan which, a year later, still has $14k left to be paid. WTF.
in addition, my ex actually WANTS TO GO THROUGH WITH THIS. his car is worth around $1k. WHAT IS THIS SHIT? why the hell was the loan for so much and why the fuck does my ex want to take on the remainder of this loan?
Edit #2 Sorry. I decided to reword this question a bit and get right to the point...
2. Let's say that you're in a relationship with someone who loves to play WoW. Suppose that for many reasons - time, money, energy, to name a few - you are not interested in pursuing this hobby. Your partner enjoys discussing the game extensively with you, though, and seems to have not caught on that you sadly do not care. Do you tell them this, or avoid insulting them and feign interest?
3. What's your favorite type of salad dressing?
Thanks for responding. :)
For me, it's Legally Blonde. I don't care what anyone says, that show is kickass. I don't know [tos] that well, but from what little I've heard, I LOVE it. Just think it might have done better Off-Broadway.
1. Was this stupid?
2. What would you have done?
3. If you believe in Karma how will I be rewarded?
4. Since I have NO money now, what are you going to cook for me?
eta: i will also be watching this movies and i hate really gorey stuff like saw and texas chainsaw massacre and stuff.
mine: a troubled rich girl falls for a motivated hispanic dude.
2. Will you share something that reflects your personal sense of humor, whether you think other people will 'get it' or not? For example, one day when there were a lot of picture posts, I had the urge to post one that said 'post a picture of yourself in the dark with no flash,' just to see how many people would join in and post solid black images.
My hair is a few inches past my shoulders. Should I get it cut so it's shorter, or can I pull it off as is? Also, what do I use in my hair to make it stick out like that?
EDIT: Oh yeah, and how difficult will it be to get whatever styling products I use out of my hair?

"Get this... yesterday, my loony mother got taken away. My whole street was blocked w/ like sixteen cops, an ambulence, and a fire truck... I had quite a day yesterday. I'm soo exhausted. And dude im fuckin traumatized. When they brought her out of the house cuffed, she gave me the dirtiest look ever. I dont think ill ever forget it. She even kicked out the back window of the cop car... Anyways shes in prison right now and in a bit she'll be institutionalized. "
What am I supposed to say to something like that?
What can I do for her?
How can I help her?
2. Do you know of anyone who has cheated during the "honeymoon phase" of a relationship?
3. I like to cook. No one ever taught me how, though. Everything I do cook comes out well but I have no technique so I end up using a million and one dishes because things get confusing during preparation and I often avoid certain recipes because I don't understand like, three phrases and have no one to really call for advice. Is there anywhere I could learn what things like "browning the meat" (is that cooking it all the way through? making it so some of it is brown? all of it?), "cook the meat til it's heated all the way through", all the different cooking techniques (braising, broiling, etc) mean, without taking an in person class and without googling a new term every time I come across it? (I have a feeling this whole question doesn't make sense).
4. If you don't know the answer to 3, are you the same way as me? A decent cook without any technique?
I have to get up at 6:30 tomorrow and bedtime needs to be 11 at the very latest.

What are some good dinners I can make that are easy and healthy?
I have an oven, a stove, a microwave, zip'n'steam bags, and pots and pans.
It needs to be good for leftovers for at least one day, preferably two.
I don't like tomato chunks (tomato sauce and ketchup are fine) and peppers. I love love love veggies, and eat a lot of chicken, but I'm open to beef and fish!
My favorite dinners are stir fry (I eat this like every week) and tortellini alfredo with chicken and broccoli (but that's not healthy D:)
For me it is Abba - Slipping Through My Fingers. I cried when I heard it in Mamma Mia, and right now it is on the repeat in my playlist. And I'm crying again.
I had already picked out an ornament before I received my partner. It is a gorgeous, EXPENSIVE Royal Copenhagen ornament and I wasn't going to pay that much attention to my partners' preferences because I had specifically picked this one out.
Do I have more obligation now to scrap my idea since it doesn't really fit into her preferences or does my partner have the obligation to just accept whatever I send her since it is a gift? And since she listed her daughter's preferences am I "supposed" to buy something specifically for her daughter as well? I really can't afford to do that.
do you bite the skin off your lips? do you get cold sores or canker sores? what's the difference?
thing is, when i am really stressed and have dry lips, i tend to bite my lips more. i did this yesterday & little bumps appeared because i was biting them so much. i carried on because i couldn't help it & today i have two cold sores. well, they look like cold sores. they're really uncomfortable and on my bottom lip. i've been looking online and it says you can only get cold sores from herpes - wtf?! there's NO possible way i could have herpes or have kissed someone with herpes.
have i got herpes?!?! where have i got it from?!?! what do i do?!?!

TQC, when you screw up and then you try to work to be trustworthy again, how long should you try before giving up? I mean, past a certain point, it becomes clear that people weren't going to give you another chance anyway. Where's the line for you? Does type of relationship matter? Have you ever made the decision to walk away after screwing up?

Okay, so I am trying to see if I am spending too much money. I am generally pretty cheap, but I don't know...
Since August 25th:
Food/Living Expenses: $345.22
Gas: $136.57 (this will normally not be this high. I drove 900+ more miles than normal)
Eating out: $115.16
Trip to Chicago/tattoo: $423.85 (again, this was a ridiculous once in a lifetime thing)
Summer debts paid off: $306.80
Money to Savings: $84
Does this seem reasonable minus the trip to Chicago and insane gas prices?

Hypothetical situation: let's say you're dreaming about killing yourself, and you're in your own body. You pull the trigger/swallow the pills/jump off a bridge and succeed... then what happens?
I know people who have let other people borrow their cars, and that usually ends up in disaster. I don't understand why people do that. Not just for stuff like "hey let me go to the convenient store for some chips real quick" but like a more long term loan.
I don't let people borrow anything really. I will lend out a book or a DVD occasionally, but for the most part I don't trust people with my things. Learned that from direct experience.
Would you kindly link me to any website(s) you find interesting EXCEPT shopping-only sites online, as I have no monies?

Why do the characters speak so close to each other -- like a few inches to a foot apart -- when there's a serious moment?
Why is it that when one character wants to speak to another in private, they only walk like two or three steps away?
And when the 3rd party is left while the two characters are talking right next to them, why can't they hear what's going on?

Here in Seattle it's Columbia or North Face rain jackets. I'm pretty sure there's a law stating that you have to own one of these before you're allowed to live here.
2) Would you ever wear pajamas in public? I'm not counting special circumstances (like rushing to the hospital, or something), I'm just thinking of people I've seen wearing what are clearly pajamas at the grocery store, mall, or to attend college classes.
3) What's the most recent item of clothing you bought?
Do you feel you are ugly when compared to what society generally perceives as beautiful?
What do you believe society generally perceives to be beautiful?
In two different public bathrooms this weekend, I've walked in and the first toilet was totally full of poop and lots and lots of toilet paper.
WTF is wrong with people?
I mean, I guess that when I realized I was having a monster poop, I'd flush as I went along. Or, I'd flush before I starting throwing a whole roll of toilet paper in there. Short of neither one oft those working, I would tell someone at the counter that someone made a mess in the bathroom.
Why do people do that sort of thing?

Any sort of "weird" food you've been dying to try?
My only requirements are that I don't want it to be too mayonnaise-y. I dislike mayonnaise, and for the first time I've found an egg salad that I like, because of the lack of the mayo taste. Unfortunately the egg salad is at my local bagel shop, and is too expensive to be buying all the time. I'll probably be substituting the mayo for vegan mayo or aioli anyway, so if you have any good recipes with either of these in it, that would be great. I like mustard, but I don't want it to be too mustard-y either, somewhere in the middle is nice.
And so this question can be more general... do you like egg salad? What about potato salad? How do you like it made?
Is the bird really the word? And if not, what is?

I've been to one other one, but I didn't like her much. She was a children's therapist and I was like 17, so I dunno why I got stuck with her. I'm calling to try and make an appointment tomorrow with one, since I think I'm finally falling apart. I'm more nervous than anything.
