When did TQC start the tagging system? There are tags under this... Strange..
I emailed him earlier today asking when one of our assignments was due and also asking if I could set up an appointment with him next week so I could make sure I've caught up on everything that I've missed. No reply. Like I previously mentioned, this isn't the first time this has happened with him.
I'm really pissed off about this. Do I go to my dean and ask him about it? Do I send my teacher ANOTHER email? If this was the first time this has happened, I would assume that he just hasn't checked his email yet, but I have emailed him several times before with questions and he has yet to return my emails. And yes, I know it is a valid email address because I was in contact with him over the summer, right before my class started.
I don't know what to do. I am going by his office tomorrow after class if I have time before an appt I have, but I am afraid I'll get too flustered or confrontational to handle the situation in a mature manner. This is SO frustrating!
What would you do?
I remember when I was about four I had these purple floral pants with a pink shirt that totally didn't match but I wanted to wear them all the time.
BUT THEN when I was like ten, I had this dark pink sweatshirt that was like thigh length with black stirrup leggings and boy did I think I was hot shit in that outfit so I wore it all the damn time. I'm talking like twice a week, minimum.
Which brings me to my real question...
1. How old is too old to keep rewearing outfits an absurd amount of times? Is it okay at four? Is it okay at ten? 17? 25?
2. Will you describe some of your ridiculouslyrepeated childhood outfits for us? bonus points for pics!
3. How often do you rotate your clothing? From items that are nonobvious like a black tee to something that would totally be noticed when repeated.
me, maybe every two weeks for everyday tees but like at least two months for something noticeable.
Someone just got stabbed in the apartment next door!
Where the fuck have I moved to?
Should my roommate and I go to bed, or stay up now?
Should I try to get past the cops to take pictures of the blood all over the front door?
There's blood all over 302's door, we live in 303. Do you think it was the guy in 302, or the guy who was looking for the guy in 302 for the last 3 weeks who kept buzzing our door pretending to be the guy in 302? (we know he's not, we looked on the cameras).
UPDATE! They told us to stay in the living room while they bust down the door...why should we stay there and not in our rooms? Any reason the living room is safer?
ANOTHER UPDATE!: Some girls who live here too said that there was a white guy, a black guy, and a hispanic guy, and the hispanic guy stabbed himself? WTF? TQC, do you really believe that this man stabbed himself? I dont.
(i've already bought every christmas movie known to man on VHS.)
2. do you have any alcohol in your posession right now? what kind?
1. a date I have tomorrow. gah.
2. yes, I have banana rum in the freezer still! oh and some beer. and a sparks. who wants some?
Since interrogative pronouns r hard werk apparently, we'll make it who OR what! :D
I've been looking on Craigslist and found some I could be interested in, but I work 6 days a week at odd hours and I'm not sure when/if I'll have time to weed through the ads. Would it be a good idea to post a wanted ad or will no one respond? Or is there a better way than Craigslist? (Keeping in mind I live in a massive city and don't know anyone well enough to get a place with them.)
What does it mean when a person drops a conversation at some random point? Like you're talking about computers and you say that DDR2 RAM is so fast and they just don't say anything...

Yes, one of the main and oldest shops in our city already opened their New Years stand last weekend. But they are only ones and there are no decorations up yet. I'm thinking about gifts but don't have any good ideas. May be I'll ask here later. :D

What are your food plans for today?
Beer or Wiskey?

1. Why do people feel it necessary to view a dead body? I prefer to remember the person alive, not laying dead in a coffin so this makes NO sense to me.
2. Would you prefer to just have a memorial service and bury the person that same day or do you prefer the wake, then funeral the next day thing? I feel like the latter just drags the mourning out.
3. Do you want to be buried or cremated? If cremated, what do you want someone to do with your ashes? I plan to be cremated and have my ashes spread over the Poulawack Cairn (an ancient cairn on the Burren in Ireland).
4. Is anyone else as creeped out by viewing a dead body as I am?

I need some new ideas for SPECIAL CHALLENGES for my flickr group... what ideas do you have?
While i'm at work today to help the day pass quicker will you send me on a photography scavenger hunt at my office? What should I take photos of?
It's only supposed to be 61 degrees out today (and will probably feel colder since it's been windy), so it's chilly outside right now at 10am, and I swear the thermo must be on 60 degrees in here. The system is computerized according to what the temp is outside (or something) so I've tried to see if I can get it warmer in here, and they always tell me no.
Also, what is your favorite dessert?
Mine is chocolate mousse! :)
I've come to realize that I love the English language. And with that realization comes the new feeling that I really don't know a lot about how it works. I'm ordering Eats, Shoots and Leaves and the companion book Ate, Shot and Left (it has a longer title that I can't remember).
What is another good book that will teach me all about the exciting world of past participles, split infinities, auxiliary verbs, etc? Preferably one that has some sort of humour to it and that isn't dry and boring.
ETA: Thanks everyone! You've given me a lot of great ideas.
My question is, what things are you a part of that people dont reolize?
Do you know how easy it is to start a cult?
Do you minipulate people without reolizing it?
What's the weirdest thing you've learned recently?
I do if it's a very thick formula, but only a little.
How does it make you feel that even though the internet is gigantic you can still look for things and not find them?
Relieved on one hand. It's kind of cool knowing about stuff that no one has thought to make a page about. Frustrated on the other hand because I want more info about some things!
What kind is your favorite CURRENT (as in the artist is still living or has only been dead 75 years or so) art style or genre? Can you post a pic of it?
Lately I've been enjoying online comics and the styles are amazingly varied. I really like Iron Spike/Iron Circus comics for the storylines as well as the art. www.webcomicsnation.com/spike/index.php
I also am in love with Raul Del Rio's work:

What's your favorite thing about Halloween?
What does it mean when he looks at me and his eyes get all soft? It confuses me, because I know he doesn't like/have a crush on me.
How long does making the excuse of having class/homework work before he finally catches on/gets pissed? Especially considering that I really am that busy. How do I let him know I'm not interested without saying it straight out? (If I say it straight out he'll pretend he wasn't asking me out and make continuous fun of me for thinking he was...I don't want to deal with that bullshit.)
What subject was your last test in?
EDIT: 'Him' in question 1 is different than 'him in question 2. *headdesk*

I'm from the northeast US.

If you are registered under a prominent party, such as Democrat or Republican, are your views, for lack of a better expression, "black and white?" I don't mean that in a rude way, but if you are registered under a party, you don't have to vote under that party, correct?
So why register under a party anyway?
I need to become a citizen, so I can vote. :/
How many items do you usually get for that much money?

I just got my ipod mini from ebay, and it has fucking STICKERS all over it; shiny love hearts. I am not amused. What can I do about this?
Where did my money-burning house-mate suddenly get $177 from?
Why does my cat keep opening the cupboards in my kitchen and sleeping amongst my canned goods? How can I stop him from doing this? Tuna with cat hair, anyone? :) Is there anything you cat does which drives you batty? And how have you gone about trying to stop them? :)
Also, is there any kind of food you have to have on a daily basis? I don't count chocolate as food, but for the sake of this question I am going to allow it. I have to have a block of chocolate per day or else I kind of go a bit nuts. Sugar addiction, anyone? D: I wish I could quit it but there's a milk bar four houses down from me which makes it hard to resist buying it.
Anything exciting going on for you this weekend?

2. If you went to college, what year was your favorite and why?
3. Is there anywhere online to watch the new season of One Tree Hill?
Making big batches of baked stuff is always good this time of year (if you're in the Northern hemisphere that is). Other than gingerbread men I love to drink chocolate and eat pumpkiny stuff.

Someone linked me to something like it in tqc_anon but I can't find the post now and googling is getting me no where >:(
on another completely different note, do you have mentally challenged siblings/children?
my 11 yr old brother is autistic, but very high functioning since we got him into therapy so young (18 months) my mom just called to tell me that according to his teacher (thru tests/studies etc.) that he is at a 7th grade level (minus math, he is in 4th for that bahaha) and i think thats pretty cool so i wanted to share~
alternatively, do you get offended when someone says "retard"? or if i had just said at the end of that last paragraph "so who else has some retards in their family" as a joke? i personally do not get offended, unless someone directs it at my brother, or refers to him specifically as one.
I had to get stamps yesterday, and I only had a $20 bill on me, so as a result I got 11 dollar coins as change. Should I spend these as is, or take them to a Coinstar machine (I have about $50 in change that I need to cash in, too)?

They are supposed to have it back by 11AM so you can run your errands.
IT is now 3:30PM. You called them around 2:30 and told them to bring your car back to you, and they refused (Not because they are still using it, but because they just don't feel like returning it).
They told you that you could come pick it up, but too bad if you couldnt, because they didn't feel like bringing it back to you. The agreement was, when they took the car they would bring it back to you at agreed upon time.
You have no way to pick your car up.
Said person shut their phone off so as not to be "bothered" by you calling them.
Can you report it stolen?
How long do you have to wait before you can report the vehicle?

Would 30 seconds of ultimate fun be worth the two hours of refiling and cleaning everything up?
If so, what is it?
How old are you?
If it depends on the personality, what's is an 'old person personality'?
earlier I made this post about a hair dye mishap. I couldn't take the color anymore (I just didn't feel like me) and I was afraid to screw it up, so I went to a salon. the lady charged me $40 just to put the toner in my hair and lighten the brassy piss yellow color to a nice softer blonde. I told her I couldn't afford to do anything else to it, so she cut it [3 inches off], blow dried it, and straightened it - all for free. usually that's at least $20-$30 more.
I love it in pumpkin rolls and lattes. Yummmmmy.

What are some good division/classification essay topics?
I originally wanted to do something involving silent films or silent film stars, but I can't seem to narrow it down into just a few categories. Then I thought of doing different types of silent film comedies, and could really only come up with two (slapstick, deadpan..). I also thought about doing football/soccer, but I wouldn't know how to categorize that either. It's got to be at least 650 words with 3 to 5 categories. I'm just insanely frustrated and any help would be much appreciated.
I'm seeing a movie tonight. It's cold and rainy and miserable outside (the only thing I hate more than rain is COLD rain, ugh), and after I got home from running errands earlier I changed into fleece sweats, a tank top and a cozy North Face fleece hoodie. Should I go to the movie comfy, even though I'll be laughed at by all the high school teenyboppers who get ~*dressed up*~ to go to the movies, or should I make myself presentable?
Have you ever used one of those nail grinders on your dog? How did your dog react? Are they REALLY as gentle as the infomercials claim? I feel like it would still be totally possible to grind them down to the quick, just like it's easy to cut the nails too short with clippers and cut the quick.
if not, what's your favourite type of lollies?

Why is my radiator creating a fair amount of heat even when I have it turned off?

I spent the night at a friend's house and her mother was murdered in the middle of the night. We were on the second story and didn't hear a thing. She was beat to death with a brick by a family friend who was coked out and on a rage. They think he was looking for money. I felt horrible for my friend because the day before was her father's wake. :(
