So its lunch time where I am. I decided to walk to the corner market to get some food. I wanted soup but they didn't have any. So then I walk over to the canned soup area of the market and see something that looks good. It was written in Spanish so I paused and figured I should read the ingredients before buying. This is what I read...

Beans, garlic, spinach, lentils, cilantro, chili peppers, BROWN IGUANA MEAT!!!!!!

1. My question is, what is the strangest thing you have found in a market?

2. What was the last recipe you experimented with and had an epic fail? What was it?

Do you think that text messages often do not reach the phones they're being sent to? or is that just an excuse people use when they don't want to or forget to reply to your texts?

Hey you.

Good evening, TQC. What have we here? A LOT OF QUESTIONS, THAT'S WHAT.

1. Did you go to kindergarten or whatever? Do you think it's weird if someone doesn't?
(Aw man, I only just saw on wiki that you americans seem to call it preschool or something? From ages 3-5, I mean, anyway)

2. Do you have any opinion on when it's too late to have children? If so, what age?

3. Ever had a relative as a teacher?

4. Does any quote from a tv show/book/movie ever just stick in your head and pop up at odd moments?

5. Does being a vegetarian really make you crazy skinny or something? My mum seems to think that if I stop eating meat I'll dissolve. Then again, she also believes microwaves will kill us all.

6. What is something really strange that you, or someone you know believes?

7. What is your favourite old nickolodeon show? (If you didn't watch nickolodeon, favourite old kids show in general).

I'm in the comments yo.

8. Do you ever use the word "yous"? Does it annoy you when people say that?

Sometimes I have trouble sleeping, and I'm considering investing in some Unisom.

Question 1: Am I going to get addicted and have to start selling my body and/or giving handjobs in alleyways to buy more Unisom?

Question 2: Are there any other comparable OTCs that DON'T contain gelatin as one of their inactive ingredients? I really don't like consuming gelatin if I can help it.

i'm not hungry.

all i've eaten today was a milky way bar, a really tiny piece of cheesecake, and a small bag of funyuns. the last thing i ate was the funyuns and that was like six hours ago.

if i do order something, it won't be good for me. i have some food in the house but it is also not very good for me and i am feeling pretty lazy.

so should i order food or just go to bed without eating?

Help me decide my night tomorrow!

I will be spending my morning and early afternoon volunteering at my college's Fallfest, meaning I'll spend all morning with a bunch of whiny 17 year old kids, so I will be a bit tired (though there'll be time in the afternoon for a nap if I so choose) when these occur.

A. My honors skate night. It's a point opportunity for us - but I'll have the points I need easily without this point. It's $10, possibly more, and lasts from 7-11. I'll have a ride if I ask around for one, but I won't be able to get there on my own. None of my closest friends will be there, just my casual acquaintances, some of whom I like and some of whom I just tolerate - including my crush. I find skating fun, but I can't do it too well and will definitely fall down a lot. It will be loud, but is something I can really only do once a year or so.

B. An improv night down the street. It's walking distance, and lasts from 7-10. It's free and there'll be refreshments, but shitty college-Sodexho ones. A couple of my closer friends will be there, but none of my best/closest ones (they all went home this weekend). The troupe doing the improv does it every Thursday from 8-9:30 and I go weekly, so I know I like them and I see them once a week - I just saw them this past Thursday. It will be packed and loud and is something I do once a week.

C. Stay the fuck home and do homework.

Which do I choose, TQC?

If you could murder one person and get away with it, would you?  The person would be someone who has no friends or family, no one who cares about them, so the only life you'd be taking/ruining would be that one person's.

Is it ever right for anyone to take anyone else's life?  Does anyone truly have the authority to say who lives and who dies?

TQC, who are these people and how did I get in on their email conversation?

How many times do I have to turn you down?

We aren't hooking up unless you meet my terms.

Pretty bad when your turned down by a hooker, isn't it?

2. was it your first LJ?
3. have you ever used a rename token? if so, what was your old LJ name?

1. October 13, 2002
2. no. I had some LJ I made in 2001, but I didn't use it much. the name was a horribly trendy stupid tween name

1.) What was your first kiss like?

2.) Have you ever planned casual sex with someone? Like making a lunch date?

3.) Ladies, what cologne do you like on a guy?

4.) Should I have a bagel with creme cheese or Raisin Brand for breakfast?

1.) I kissed a girl named Tonya in the lunchline in the 3rd grade, but that was on the cheek. My first real kiss was with this guy named Dwayne when I was in the 8th grade... right on a bench at Buckroe Beach.

2.) I did. With a Korean exchange student. He asked me to meet him after class and go to his dorm. It was like we were planning to go to lunch at McDonald's. The word "sex" never came up (maybe he didn't know it, he was new to the English language), but we both knew that's what was going to happen.

So I'm in the UK for the year, and I have a few very important questions.

1. Do they have candy corn here? I haven't seen it in any of the stores I've browsed at yet.

2. Is pumpkin pie not a big thing here? I really want to make these super delicious pumpkin cookies, but I'm having trouble finding the canned pumpkin puree that is often used in making pumpkin pies which I need for my cookies.

3. Is candy corn delicious or gross?

there's a food and music festival i'm planning to go to today and a party later tonight, but i need to clean the house beforehand.

i already called in late telling them i was sick, but i just don't want to go. it's the slow season anyway, should i just call in? or suck it up, work for a few hours (because they'll probably send people home early) and head to work?

My computer's like 4 years old...and it's been giving me some problems lately. I have to restart my computer like 3 times...but it was 5 times just now, just to get to my desktop. And right now my screen just looks hazy, kinda like a grey tint to it. Doesn't change when I try to set the brightness on the screen. It bothers me...at first I thought I was going blind. Not to also mention that the computer case also makes this weird, loud noise...but stops when I bang on it repeatedly.

What the hell is going on? Should I reset my whole computer and download everything all over again? (cries @ the thought of that)

Or is there a better solution?

my boyfriend likes to keep some stubble on his face, so he usually just uses one of these electric shavers to trim:

but because he's working at a really strict client site this week, he can't have any hair on his face. he has sensitive skin though and when he completely shaves, he tends to break out..usually around his jawline. what would be the best way to shave? stay with the electric shaver? use a regular razor? what kind of soaps or shavings creams/gels would you suggest? also, another concern is cutting any preexisting blemishes that he already has on his face. how can this be avoided?

TQC, I have a horrible hangover and just went to the store to buy myself some soup to help me feel better.  I bought a can of Campbell's Chicken Noodle O's, because I like cheap crappy soup when I'm sick.  However, there was, like, NO broth in it.  It was a can of noodles, basically.  Normally Noodle O's are rather noodly and don't have much broth, but this stuff basically had none.  The can was sealed and everythng.  Do you think it's bad?  Should I eat it anyway?

vague art search and question

i am in a very frantic search for a peice of asian art.

the peices are from the 40's and is very likely to be communist in nature. they are all drawn or painted, but highly realistic and whimsical. they almost always feature children. brightly colored and cheerful as well. ive searched everywhere i can for hours and found nothing. i am 99% sure it is chinese in origin, however there are a few things on the card that make me think there is a remote possibility it is japanese.

i found a reproduction of this style of art from a postcard i bought in berkeley the other day. ive looked up the pulisher and the name of the peice, but no dice.

does anyone here have any idea what type of art this is and where i can find it?

the publisher is catch publishing and the name of the print is space fantasy (it is not science fiction, however).

thanks very much!

my best friend broke up with her boyfriend (of one year) a few days ago. I was praising the heavens when she told me, because they had a very horrible, very abusive relationship and she has a child (not by him).

so they're still broken up, by her standards. however - he still lives with her, they still have sex, and she still refers to him as "baby"

am I just being stupid, or does that absolutely sound like you are not broken up with someone?

have you ever broken up with someone and continued treating them the same way (living with them/sleeping with them)? if so, how did it end up?

After my daughter kicked me out of my own bedroom so she could go to sleep it was made clear it's time for us to move into a two bedroom apartment. I really like the building we are in now and plus I am really in no mood to actually MOVE. Just shoving my belongings across the hall is fine right now.

So, there is a vacant two bedroom now. Perfect. However, I know I've mentioned this briefly in comments but there is someone who is on the sex offender list in my building and yep, that was his apartment. He just moved out a few days ago but something about moving into his apartment creeps me out. Obviously he's not going to be there, but just something about it really irks me. Am I being a complete fool right now? I kind of feel like I'm in third grade right now, "Ew she touched it I don't want it now!?"

I have a job dilemma. Last year, I applied to masters programs for library science (lol) and was accepted to both places I applied. I deferred admission to Fall 2009 because I wanted more work experience first. So anyway, I started working at my current job, in the library of a law firm, in April. This was after I had already been accepted to grad school. The reason I was hired (I assume) was because I mentioned an interest in the field, which is obviously true, but I at no point mentioned that I planned to attend grad school in another state in Fall 2009. My boss even mentioned that, when the time came, we could work things out so I could keep my job and attend a local grad program at night.
Anyway, at this point, I'm fairly certain I will be attending U of Maryland Fall 09 (I live and work in NYC currently.) Now, I plan to play it that I applied to programs this year to make things easier, and applications wouldn't be due for awhile. However, my boss clearly loves being a mentor and I think it would be weird if I was just like lol bye and gave a two weeks notice when I quit next summer. However, I dont want to be let go prematurely. And I also want to be able to use my boss as a reference, as this will be the longest library job I have had to date, assuming I dont leave until next summer.

I know this is tl;dr but if anyone has read it- when should I tell my boss about my plans? Or, if you dont care, any interesting stories about quitting/being fired from jobs?

I'm holding back on my OCD

a. Every bite of food I put in my mouth has to have the same amount of everything on it. For example: a bite of an omelet has to have a balanced amount of peppers, cheese, egg, bacon etc on it. If I have chicken, rice and stuffed peppers on my plate I have to put a little bit of everything on my fork. A bite of cereal cannot have too much milk on it.
b. If I pick a hangnail, I don't stop until I've gotten every last bit of it (even if I bleed).
c. My canned foods have to be facing out so I can read every can when I open the cupboard.

Has anyone seen either (or both) House of 1000 Corpses/Devil's Rejects? What did you think of them?

I watched them last night at a friends house, and they were very fucked up. I liked Devil's Rejects better.

Either way, I'm never going to the south.

If you haven't seen either of those movies, what was the last scary movie you saw and how did you like it?
Marilyn Monroe - green

Is there an LJ community that allows you to post specific requests and then kind/generous LJers grant them?

Example: Someone requests paid time for their LJ account. Or the new Usher album. Or a gift card to H&M.

Then another member of the group grants the request.

Kinda like the Twatfairy for ontd_twatlight...

What's the grossest snot-related thing that's happened to you?

I'm so stupid and I can't find what channel and time SNL is going to be on where I live.

I can't navigate the tv guide page, and I just can't seem to find it.

I live in Western Massachusetts if it makes a difference.

Any help?

One day, your SO tells you that he's come to the conclusion that he's gay. He still wants to be with you because he loves you, but from now on, the only sex he wants from you is anal because vaginas really gross him out.

Would you stay with him?

I went to Subway for dinner, the same Subway that has been there for several years. However, when I went tonight there was a big banner proclaiming "GRAND OPENING!" and many balloons inside. When I asked one of the employees he explained that they got a new owner and the hours of operation changed (open later)

When did "New Ownership"="Grand Opening"?


I got disowned by some family members today for being a bad person. Have you ever been disowned by a family member? What did you do?

Two women have already told me today that they had dreams about me last night. The weird thing is, I had a dream last night with both of them in it. Are we connected by our minds? Am I infiltrating them in my sleep? How can I stop this because I woke up exhausted this morning?
