I want a new psp, will you give me yours?
Today was about 55°F, and I wore three hoodies (I know) and a shirt. I kept shaking, it looked like my hands were shriveling up, and my nose was red. I should probably see my doctor about this...
(And don't be lame and say you don't have one. There must be at least ONE color that is favorable to you!)
How did your favorite color come to be your favorite color?
What effect has this color had on your life (like, do you buy certain things in that color, are you drawn to people who wear that color, etc)?

She's at a different college, and I don't even believe that people can be "stolen" in relationships since it takes two. No lectures, plz.
Once while stoned, I decided toilets were inherently sexist. I mean, men just stand over the toilet, insert their fluids and walks away. They flushes away any concerns and responsibilities. Women, however, sit over this dark, deep undefended hole and have their precious bodily fluids taken from them without the ability to influence the event.
*we are broken up but were trying to fix things. I have spent two weeks trying to make sure he's safe, keeping his asshole friends updated, and talking to his mom.
Long story short: how fucked up is it to start drama with someone who is already fucked up enough to be in a mental ward for two weeks?
TQC, will you tell me a bedtime story?
Or, just give me a remedy for insomnia?
2. If you could chose one of the Seven Wonders to visit, which one would it be and why?
and there are lines throughout the song that proceed(i think that's the word) the line "but when i hear the music..."
and they are
-all the world is holy and good
-all the animals in my heart roar
-all the wilderness in my heart grows
and it got me thinking

Want to share a picture of your adventures?
I have an internal alarm clock that always wakes me up an hour before I have to be up. Drinking however fucks up the clock by like 5 hours though.
Also, my legs get itchy when fall is about to arrive. So like, if you ever see a guy scraping the skin off his thighs, you'll know its time to put on a sweater.
(I totally had a Lisa Frank journal with a lock that I put under my mattress like they do in all of the books. But the lock snapped so I just kept it further under the mattress. I chronicled the minute details of every single aspect of my day from 1st grade until 9th grade when I got my LJ - down to exactly what I wore.)
How do you feel about turnips?
Is the road darker in front of them?
It's bad enough they're at the perfect distance and height to get you in every mirror but they do they have to use stadium lights?
If so, which site do you purchase them from?
I'm trying to find a place other than 1-800-contacts to purchase them from seeing as that site charges way too much...

1. Graduate on time 2. Find a good job 3. Travel for an extended amount of time
Come onnnn, inspire me, I feel like shit.
I cannot stop cracking up because my BF keeps asking me: "has your period come down?" in Spanish. It reminds me of the "get off the shed" skit on SNL. Um, backstory to the question, it's late and we are both hoping like hell that I'm not pregnant. D: D: D:
What is your favorite flavor gum?

Six Feet Under!!!
Do you have any ritual habits for bedtime or sleeping?
I can not get into bed unless the bed is made first. I hate making my bed in the morning though, so come bedtime it's a mess. Right before bed I fix the sheet, pillowcases and then make the bed before getting in. Every single night. In any bed.
I always have to be wrapped up in my blanket like a cocoon too. My boyfriend and I use separate blankies even when we live together. First I make my bed, then get in my spot. I bring the covers over me and roll as far as I can to one side and fold it up under me and then repeat for the other side so it's very tight. I flip my feet up and the swish the bottom open part of the blanket underneath my feet and legs.
If it's too hot for this (I usually start with this every night even if I know it'll get too hot) I take a corner of the covers and tuck it under my tummy (I usually sleep on my stomach) and drape the rest over the small of my back and onto the floor.
My boyfriend will like drink a liter of water right before bed every night. He's up peeing all night but otherwise he gets really dried up by morning. I'm used to being woken up by him at least 2-3 times a night.
Awesome friends, booze, and hopefully celebration of election results (it'll be on November 6th) are already in the plans... what else should I do to celebrate a year without the motherfucker?
Are your cats good at catching mice?

i hope this isn't too confusing. i feel like it is.
What was the last awkward phone conversation you had about?
So I ran out of sites, I think :-(
Does anyone know any sites that have those games that offer a free trial or a free game? I've used: BigFishGames, RealArcade, IWin, Shockwave, and a few more I can't remember. Haven't paid yet, but I played about 6 or 7 games. I only have another 8 to go! LoL. Any ideas would be appreciated.
The problem is that his birthday is just about one month away. I have no idea when I will get my paychecks, etc. I can definitely afford to get him the Touch thanks to my new job, but the timing makes me VERY nervous. He is also the one who mostly deals with our finances/bills and I am worried I wont be able to make this big of a purchase and keep it a secret from him.
When I bought my wedding dress from Nordstroms I got a Nordstroms card so I could put the dress on the card and then pay it off. I was thinking of going to somewhere that sells the IPOD Touch (like Best Buy, etc) and doing the same thing (applying for the card, putting the Touch on it, and then easily paying it off.) This way I could keep it a secret from him AND not have to worry about the timing of my paychecks. I wouldnt use the credit card ever again, just for THIS purchase.
Is this a good idea, TQC?
Can you think of a better way for me to go about doing this?

1. I'm going to be Ms. Frizzle! I still need the dress though.
3. Wilson the volleyball from Castaway was probably the best costume I've ever had.

And for those not interested, what are you having for dinner tonight?
I wouldn't even know where to begin to google this.
What's the craziest last name you've ever known someone to have?
I have a friend who is totally democratic for the scene of it. One of those people who chooses the title and then will agree with it no matter what. She is seriously not even that informed about stuff, or if she is she doesn't talk about the right things when she goes on her pro-democratic rants. She does the whole anti-republican thing and has an Obama sign in her window at college. I'm sure if she was informed she'd be democratic anyway. I just wish she would...be informed and not rant mindlessly about things that don't really make her look educated.
I'm not biased, I'm not republican or democratic, I understand why people would go either way, there's nothing wrong with being one or the other. You might call me an independant, but really, I'm just not political.
Along those lines, should I vote? If so, why? Anyone else here old enough to vote and not going to? Why?
How ridiculous would it be to try and apply for an American Express 'Blue for students' card right now? I'm a student/working part time, with little credit, and obviously with the credit crunch and everything I doubt I'd be approved - what do you think, TQC?
Edit: If you have any experience with AMEX, would it be better just to try for the regular 'Blue' card instead of for students??

ever been to rehab? for what? what was the most surprising thing about rehab? bonus points for the small details that people don't usually think of (like having to hand over the cellophane and lids of your meals, or not being able to go to the bathroom alone).
It's a bit late notice to round up a friend to go with me, so I've accepted the fact that this is probably going to be a solo thing. I rarely go anywhere alone (aside from the grocery store), so this is sort of new territory for me.
or would you rather

How far in advance do you like to have things planned?
Should I take two weeks off directly before Christmas (we get a week off over christmas & new years) or two weeks directly after? (I want to have 3 weeks off hopefully).
What should i do during that time off?

Big Goal: I'm going to do Study Abroad by fall of 2010 no matter what.
Little Goal: Finish my homework before class tomorrow.

EDIT: I can't do both, I have the Homeworks. :(
Which place should I order my pizza from?
These are the only two pizza places near me, and I can't make up my mind. Pizza Hut has better breadsticks, but Papa Johns has better pizza. I honestly don't think I've ever had Pizza Hut pizza aside from the little personal pan pizzas :\
For those of you without an opinion on pizza, how much does gas cost near you right now, on average?
Last night, I consistently saw 2.70-ish

What do you think it could be if you don't know
I come from a very conservative middle-class family, and I think a lot of them are voting for McCain. I want to write them a mass email explaining why they shouldn't. The tricky part is being tactful. I want to change their minds without exactly telling them I think they're a bunch of ignorant morons.
Jonathan Haidt had some interesting stuff to say about morality and why it leads people to vastly different (and at times seemingly stupid) political positions. I'm going to use some arguments from that as a starting point. I'm also going to include a side-by-side comparison of Obama and McCain's tax plans showing how Obama's is better for the middle class, and a chart showing how Reagan-era "fiscal conservatives" have consistently jacked up the national debt while "tax and spend liberals" have consistently reduced it. Finally, I'm going to debunk the stupid lies that Obama is a Muslim who pals around with terrorists. Because they're exactly the kind of idiots who would latch onto crap like that and preach it as truth.
Anything else you think I should add?
Edit: To those who say I shouldn't do this, why? (Note: I flat-out reject avoiding drama as a valid reason.)
And to those who say I should be more tolerant: there are two subtle distinctions I'd like you to think about. First of all, tolerance means respecting other people's right to believe what they want, NOT respecting the beliefs themselves or abstaining from trying to change them. Second, disagreements stem from two things: values and facts. A mature person respects that others often have different value systems. But there is no reason to respect someone who insists on believing facts that are false. In fact, I'd say that respecting other people's wrong factual beliefs is a sign of mental weakness.

If you would never do such a thing, how do you like your chicken prepared?

so i'm pretty sure that what i originally thought was a rare severe acne breakout is actually a series of cold sores. so, my questions:
1. which is worse--pimples or cold sores?
2. have you ever had a cold sore? how about 11?
3. what do i doooooooo? (ok, that one is hypothetical mostly.)
4. can you tell me an uplifting story about people with repulsive cold sores who went on to live normal, happy lives?
Forgot to add my answer: I've had many potential band names go through my head (but alas, no talent), but I currently like "Cunt Rockets".
I'm moving to NYC this coming weekend and I just found out yesterday! It will just be me and the boyfriend.

Do you have anything missing that most people have?
which planet earth episode thingy should i watch?
How do you like your women?
How do you like your men?
For me, it's Little Women with Winonna Ryder and Christian Bale. I guess it's because there are a few Christmas scenes and it's all warm and happy and full of family.

FYI, I had the same kind of texting relationship (I like texting, apparently) with a co-worker a year ago, and he asked the same kind of questions, and it all culminated with me getting groped in a movie theatre, so I want to be a little more cautious here.

Or at least do you know what language it is so I can look it up online?

I need to find a picture of people playing video games for the last slide of my speech on the history of video games and the ways they have influenced our culture. The picture needs to have girls and boys in it, and they need to be looking like they're having a lot of fun. Could you help me find a good one?
If I can't find something like that then I need a picture that encompasses the video game playing experience. What do you think that picture would look like? I'm going to be putting it in powerpoint and it will be up on a projector so it needs to have a fairly good resolution, something that is easy to see up on the screen.
I have my entire speech done, but I just need this one picture to finish off the slideshow!
If you come across anything please let me know!
ETA: Thanks guys, I finished it! I ended up putting one picture each of kids, teenagers, and adults playing video games all on the same slide. I appreciate the help!
I feel pretty ridiculous about this, but I'm kind of hurt because I though we had an awesome summer :(
Why does my ex call me at the most random times, like 1 am on a Wednesday night and 6 am on a Sunday morning, to apologize for the last time he randomly called me at a terrible hour?
It's irritating as hell.

How come I couldn't escape hearing about Terri Schiavo every day, and yet this wasn't even a blip on my radar? Wouldn't you be much more concerned about a cop-impersonating manipulative telephone pervert than some family gone drama-llama?
I was helping paint a friend's house, and a smoke alarm was casting a small shadow on the wall. Maybe it was the fumes, maybe it was just me, but I tried to paint over the shadow for like 5 minutes. I was like, "OMG THE GRAY JUST KEEPS EATING UP THE WHITE PAINT" Someone had to point it out to me. :(
So my window is busted, and the Boston air is getting chilly. It doesn't close all the way, leaving about a quarter of an inch between the window and the frame. Since I can't afford to get it fixed (I think it's going to require a full replacement of the window, since there's other things wrong with it too) what material would you suggest I put between the window and the sill to try to insulate it?
Srs and nonsrs answers will be graciously accepted :)
