November 3rd, 2008
I am getting 2 girly guinea pigs next week. I really want to call then Ines and Mathilde, and I have no idea why. What should I call them? Bonus points for French/Spanish inspired names.
Lastly, have you suffered because of your name? My name rhymes with frigid OH HOW FUNNY.
Wtf. Someone please translate this from man into woman for me. Did I dodge the bullet? Or should give him some space, but still keep trying?
i want to try them SO BADLY, but every time i go to the grocery store (5 so far..) they either don't carry them or they are out. what do i do? are they as delicious as i think they'd be?
if you don't know: what's your favorite sandwich cookie? i like golden oreos.
I don't think she's that pretty, so I don't really think I'm being complimented, and I really don't see the resemblance beside the fact that we both obviously bleach our hair.
Should I take this as a compliment?
Is this too ludicrous to even take seriously?
(Oh and in case anyone else lives under a rock like me, her name is Elisha Cuthbert [sp])

How many car accidents have you been in?
I'm a member of 14, and it seems like so many!
Bonus points if it isn't related to politics.
ps. i know i can do it on paper, but i have the handwriting of a 12 year old boy and lose everything.
Ever gotten one?
IS IT NOVEMBER 5TH YET???
eta: If you are vegan, do you feel obligated not to swallow?
I don't think I'd be able to not eat there, because by the time I'm done work I'm starving. Also I'd hate to pay money to eat lunch somewhere healthier when I get free food.
So basically my question is, do you have any recommendations for unique food that doesn't involve artery clogging deliciousness, but is still tasty? I'm looking for a new idea, a weird combination I've never tried before. Options are most sandwich meats (turkey, chicken etc), different breads/buns, salads, dressings (italian, french, ranch, ceasar), and a few veggies (the ones i like are peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots).
If you could dye your hair any unnatural colour, what would it be? Or if it is dyed what colour is it right now? Mine's blue right now and I want pink, but the blue will not budge even with bleach.
What's a song that an artist you otherwise like sings that sucks? I'm not at all thrilled with AAR's Gives You Hell
What's the last new thing you tried? Did you like it?
What's the worst advice you've received?
What's your favorite lunch food?
If you are male or lesbian or just like sleeping with women occasionally, does it bother you if your partner doesn't shave her legs or armpits?
have any of you done something like that before?
How would you sum up this past month for yourself?
Why do I live in a state where saying JOSHUA SEGALL IS A LIBERAL AND HIS LIBERAL FRIENDS ARE LIBERAL OBAMA AND LIBERAL NOBEL LAUREATE AL GORE is supposed to convince me to vote against Joshua Segall?
what time is it?
So... what's the best way to get my sleeping schedule back on track?
okay my prettys, lets play a game
i own a animal, they have 4 legs, and fur, and whiskers. they go mew mew.

Is anyone else crazy about bridge (the card game)?
I've been addicted to Viwawa.com since July, sigh
now here are the questions...
1. did any of you read it?
2. did you like it?
3. whats your favorite Stephen King novel?
When you're dealing with a painful situation, are you the type that cries and sits around sadly or the type that looks as if everything was alright but you cant sleep, cant eat, and feel sick?
If you're the last type, have you ever got health problems because of this?
Also: I am the last type but I don't think this is healthy. Do you have a clue how I can change it? I cant manage to cry! I have difficulties with that. I just feel like I was horribly sick.
And last: if you've ever heard of this or know people like this, tell me your experiences or what you've heard?
Today, I told myself "Hey, you look pretty good!" Usually, though, I just stick out my tongue or make a silly face. Lame, I know, but it makes me laugh and puts me in a good mood for the rest of the day.
how do you deal with anxiety?
how frequently do you get your hair cut?
has your dog ever had knee surgery? how'd that work out for you?
what do you think i splurge on?
I'm home sick today, and have no classes tomorrow due to the election.
So What Should I do?
what is your opinion?
EDIT: think i answered my own question. the glue can withstand heat up to 150 degrees before ignition. the outside temperature of a candle of this diameter does not reach 150 degrees. what is more likely to happen (i am theorizing) is the glue will soften as it increases in temperature and the jewels will slowly slide down the candle.

There are a few pairs on Endless that I'm mysteriously drawn to.
If someone says you're a diplomatic person, is that a compliment or an insult? Does context matter?
2. What's the last wild animal you've seen? (Zoos don't count)
3. What exactly is a rock lobster?
I've always been pretty quiet around most people, even good friends. Last weekend I visited my friends for the first time in months and I feel like I'm losing the little bit of ability that I had to connect with them. My life's not very interesting right now, so there's not much to talk about with that, and I'm not particularly well-read IMO, so I can't really have a conversation about philosophy or politics or many things that require a lot of prior knowledge.
Folks of TQC that wear mascara: don't you HATE when your eyelashes on one eye turn out better (longer, thicker, more separated, better curled, etc.) than those on the other eye?! ARGH
1: What was the last funny thing you saw on YouTube?
2: Crayola or Rose Art?
3: Favorite breakfast?
joy to the world
we barbecued his head
what happened to his body?
we flushed it down the potty
and 'round and 'round it goes
and 'round and 'round it goes
and 'rou-OUND and 'ROU-ou-ound and 'round it goes
another one went like this:
i hate you
you hate me
let's gang up and kill barney!
with a gun to his head and blood on the floor
no more purple dinosaur!
i guess this mostly applies to people born in the mid-to-late '80s, because when we were 7ish to 10ish it was really cool to make fun of barney.
What else should I do to keep myself entertained today (I'm home sick)?
Here is dilemma: Cousin's funeral is on Thursday in MI. I live in Texas.
If I go, I have to miss 2 1/2 days of work no matter how I schedule my flights. It will also cost me $800 for just myself, $1600 for both my husband and I.
I want to go to be there for my family and to say goodbye.
But I miss my husband and want him to be here with me and I want to spend as much time with him as possible before he leaves again for work (another 6 day trip on Monday). And it is too expensive to send both of us. I also would use up all the rest of my vacation and make it hard/impossible to visit my family on Thanksgiving and on Christmas, and take a trip we had planned with my in-laws for February.
What should I do? What would you do?
Am I selfish?
What things do you do to comfort yourself when you're sick?
2. What kind of sauce do you like on your pasta? If you enjoy a jarred/canned sauce, which is your favorite brand and flavor?
3. We have silverfish in our kitchen. Hella gross. I get squicked out looking stuff up online about bugs, so TQC, would you be so kind as to summarize for me: Are silverfish really bad or are they just annoying? Anything I can do to get them out of our apartment? And when I squish 'em with a paper towel, why is there nothing there? DO THEY HAVE CLEAR BLOOD?! Because I squished one of those annoying gnats on the counter and holy crap, there was a lot of blood/bug goo, but I squish a silverfish that's a million times bigger and there's nothing there.
if you haven't been there..tell me about other great places in florida, or basically just other warm vacation spots that you've been to and that are really fucking awesome.

Will you please tell me tales of your pets hilarious hijinks to cheer me up?
I'll start - I maintain, to this day, that the reason my first dog failed puppy school was than during the "play time" at the end of the first lesson, she snuck up behind the instructor and stole the bag of treats out of her back pocket, piss-bolted to the end of the field we were in, and scoffed the lot.
I could have sworn it said "Blow me."
When the wind cries, what do you hear?
2. I've never been to Chick-fil-A. I've been told I'm missing out, am I?
EDIT: If you think I'm missing out, will you tell me what your favorite meatless thing they have is?
A passenger has been on an overcrowded bus (like Greyhound, not transit) for three hours. Their stop is 20 minutes away. They're deathly allergic to peanuts - even the smell can give them a reaction. You sit down in front of them and open a bag of peanuts and start stuffing your face, when you are tapped on the shoulder by the person behind you. They politely explain the situation and ask if you can wait 20 minutes to finish them.
What do you do?

Excuse the bad drawing.
ETA: Thanks, guys!

Where do you move to on WEDNESDAY??
Will you tell me a story about some serious crazy that you've witnessed?
About a couple of years ago, my then-partner and I were woken up at 5am by the lady across the road. She kept setting off her car alarm and then screaming at it to shut up, before turning it off, waiting a minute, then setting it off again. At 6am, she took a plank of wood, went to her neighbour's, and smashed in all their windows, then called the police, claiming they'd been harassing her for the past three hours (they'd been asleep, of course). When the police came, she started crying, then called her boyfriend to tell him the policeman was harassing her. Her boyfriend turned up, and it turned out he was a white supremist, who started shouting at the police officer (who was Maori) to get the f*** away from his woman. The police officer arrested them both, but the woman returned to her house about four hours later and amused herself by hauling her stereo outside, positioning it to face the neighbour's house, and playing "I Will Survive" on loop and at full volume.
The next day she wandered into our house and stood in our lounge for a while before we asked her (MOST POLITELY, 'cause we didn't want all our windows smashed at 6am) to please leave.
(yes, I know she was probably seriously mentally ill, but it was still some wicked crazy. Also, the woman was a complete drama queen, and this was just a couple of steps up from her usual antics)
EDIT: Thanks guys! It's heating up in the toaster oven right now!
EDIT2: I am eating it. It's okay. Pizza Hut never reheats very well anyways.
What's the weather like where you are today?
It's chilly (56F)and misty here.

Did you vote straight?
Was this a little unnecessary and should I have told her something in return?"
I voted this past Thursday and it was my first time (YAY!) so the old lady asked me if I had any questions. I told her no and she asked if it was my first time AGAIN and I told her yes. Well, then she said: "Well of COURSE you have questions..." and she went off on this long winded explaination of how to vote. (aaahah) So, when she was done she specifically told me NOT to vote straight because only un-intelligent people vote straight and that both parties have their negative sides. I gave her this "Wtf are you serious?" face and she just shuffled away to the next person in line. I didn't know whether to slap her or report her.
What would you have done?
So, TQC, based off of what you watch on TV, what will you become?
If yes (or even if no, just imagine) what would you do? Would you leave that class ASAP or would you stick around?
I just got really bad news in the middle of psych and I had to run out of the class to answer the phone. When I came back in I felt like everyone was staring at me, but I couldn't leave because we have a test in there soon.
2. What's your favourite sea creature? Extra points for weirdness. (Mine: Nudibranchs, as seen in my icon. :D )
3. What should I write my fourth year thesis about? I'm a biology student. (This is not a "decide my life for me" question. My thesis is two years away (I'm in second year) and I just want some ideas to help give me ideas.)
Do you generally use salted or unsalted butter in your baking/cooking and on your toast?
Is it weird that my ex-husband reads my LJ? I left him in 2004, we divorced in 2006, and my LJ is only 2 years or so old. So it wasn't something he knew about before we split up. Would that weird you out?
Are there any small tracking devices that would be appropriate to attach to a cat who frequently gets lost?

What is the deal with airline peanuts?
Did you Ba-rock the vote?
The noises some people make when they eat, like that wet smacking noise because they can't keep their mouth shut? It drives me fucking insane. If I ever hear that noise in a maternity ward, I'm going to go to jail.
ETA: LOL at people thinking I'm srs about the baby punching.
Are you in therapy?
Do you play WoW?
And I went to Subway and got the new chicken pizziola sandwich. It was OK, but I still like their regular chicken sandwich more. What subway sandwich do you like the most?
Anyone here in a teacher education program? If so, what level & areas of concentration are you in?
You have a friendly acquaintance in one of your current classes. She has a series of unfortunate events that keep her out of class for more than a week (3 classes). She has asked for a copy of your handwritten notes, so she can potentially not fail the midterm this Thursday. You oblige, and say that you'll make copies of what she missed, but warn her that you take a ton of notes, and we'll be talking more than 10 pages of xeroxed hand written notes. She says that's great and says she will reimburse you for your costs. You think that's fair.
Things to consider: When all the notes are copied, it is 18 pages.
These pages were photocopied at your home and on your home copier, so there is no "set cost" as there would be in a copy place so
your paper and your ink were used exclusively.
Here is the question: How much would you charge your friendly acquaintance for 18 copies, made at your home?
I realize this could have been avoided entirely had I just gone to a copy store and paid out of pocket and then gotten a receipt and paid back. Just seemed like too much trouble... and it's raining.
What does it look like?
I just do a sweatshirt underneath a heavy coat.

I need serious answers for this one, okay? =). I have an ex boyfriend; we dated for three years and have been broken up for two. He keeps going on and on about how much he loves me/still in love with me/whatever but then disappears for weeks on end. The last time I spoke to him ... he kind of hurt my feelings.
Is anal considered sex? My ex boyfriend claims we never had sex based on the fact that we always did anal.
Should I simply stop speaking with him? I want to date him, again .. BUT GDFGDFGDFG.
I want to make some for my friend because she is having a really bad day/week/weekend.
Do your lips get chapped in the wintertime?
Are you happy?
TQC, will you stock my fridge/pantry? What else should I buy?
Have you heard of the movie "The Monster Squad" (1987)?
If you have seen this movie, would you compare it to "Goonies"?
My husband's co-worker claims that this is the greatest cult movie EVER and compared it to "Goonies." Seriously. But an impromptu survey of the company shows that he's the only person to have even heard of the movie, let alone viewed it. I already just shake my head and go "oh, silly boy" when this guy is around, but this would be icing on the cake, you know?
So I'm taking Chemistry 40. I saw that, in order to take the lecture, I'm also required to sign up for a lab/conference class. But Jesus Christ, those hours seem nuts. If I'm reading this right, one day out of the week would be five hours of chemistry classes... right?
I'm hoping I'm wrong, because that really screws over my schedule.
Anyone taken a class like this before that can clarify?
Edit: Damn -_-. Well thanks TQC. Next semester will be fun...

He is going to be about an hour away. The doors open at 5 and the event starts at 9. I have to work in the morning and we're going to go vote around 6:00AM (yikes, I know). So, I wouldn't get home until laaaate. But at the same time, this is an historic event!
Decide for me, TQC.
1. Does it annoy you more when people take things TOO seriously or not seriously enough?
2a. Have you ever had one of those dreams when you knew you were sleeping and dreaming and could control everything you did in the dream?
2b. If you have them frequently, what is something, like staying up a certain amount of time or eating certain foods that always seems to precede it?

So, with one day left, what do you think the results will be for the U.S.presidential election?
Here are the categories:
- Electoral vote (538 total)
- Number of states won (51 total with DC)
- Percent of the popular vote (100 total, obviously)
For each, list your prediction for Obama, McCain and the others.
If I feel especially motivated, I'll try to keep track of who comes closest.
(OK, I have a spreadsheet going [geek that I am.] The popular vote will be calculated by taking the difference between the actuals for Obama, McCain and "the others" and dividing by 3. This will probably take a few days after the election until most of the absentees are counted.)

I've been depressed lately so I've been shopping to make myself feel better, and I don't have the money to. I usually tell my mom I need $$ because I spent it on gas or something, but usually, I just spent it on a new sweater. She loves me :(
I should leave him and get my own apartment, correct?
Do you think this is part of a left-wing conspiracy to gain sympathy for Obama/remind people that he is, in fact, part white?
I am registered to vote ... in my maiden name. When I went to the DMV/SOS to change my name after I got married, I never registered to vote in my new name.
Can I still vote? :( The address on my voter's card matches my current license... the only difference is the last name. =\ Wahhhh.

What is it referring to?
TQC, did I break the dryer y/n?
I have these little marks on me that look like mosquito bites but aren't. They don't itch or anything. My boyfriend suggested they were bed bug bites or that I was allergic to something. They are only on my neck, chest, and stomach. He doesn't have any of the marks if they are from bed bugs ... but I guess maybe he isn't allergic if that is what they are.
If you have had bed bugs before tell your story.
Also I know there used to be a website where you try to figure out how to get to the next site by doing things like turning on a light, translating codes, changing the url, etc. I want to say something like nimball or something? Anybody know?
How is that working for ya?
What was the last discussion you had with someone about?
i'm justified in being angry, right? and...how do i let him/the people he told know that i'm not okay with them talking about me behind my back?

Have you ever gotten over a severe phobia?
- I have harbored this desire to become a midwife forever, but I'm terrified of IV drips & I'm not sure I could take blood. It's the only thing holding me back (the extra 3 years of school after completing an English degree isn't all that great but it's really what I want to do) Am I crazy for thinking I could ever get over something that's been with me for so long?
What do you desire?
