If so who would that be?
Is it dead? Has it won?
Why do you say so?
I just got in from work, and I'm studying for a looming exam, loitering on the internet, and eating tic-toc cookies. What're you up to at the moment?
Are you a stay-at-home parent or do you work outside the house?
Parents and those who think they may want kids someday:
Would you rather be a stay-at home parent or work outside the house? Why?
I have been a stay-at-home Mom for the past 2 years. Tomorrow I am starting classes for this one job so I can get a new car. Fuck bills, I want a new car.
Anyway, like I said, SAHM... I'm going to miss my child. :(
Do you have any tips on how I can keep my mind off of him while I'm in school? I feel like I'm going to be that 5 year old Kindergartner who goes to the office crying so she can go home to see her mom.
ARE THERE ANY MOMS HERE WHO HAVE JUGGLED THE KID AND SCHOOL?
Wah Wah Wah.
Also, what should I pack in my lunches?
I always eat out when I'm away from home, but $4 a day at McDonalds isn't in the budget nor my arteries.
If all servants of Mordor speak in the Black Speech, how did Samwise understand Frodo's captors when they said the huge spider hadn't killed him?
When Aragorn knocks on the Black Gate, a rider comes out with Frodo's mithril coil to prove to them Frodo is dead. However, the orcs that brought Frodo in and everyone who witnessed anything were dead. How did they know it belonged to Frodo? And how did Sauron learn that Frodo was coming? And if Sauron knew Frodo was inside Mordor, why did he divert his armies?
The leader of the armies that attack Minas Tirith laughs that this will be an end to the Race of Men. Yet coming by corsairs are pirates and riding the oliphants are Turkish-looking dudes. Aren't these people not men? If so, then why would they be on board with destroying the race of Men? And how could you claim to be destroying the race of Men when your own army has them?
2. Who here lives in or near Boston, Philadelphia, or NYC? What are the pros and cons, in your opinion, of living in or near your city (and please specify whether you live in or near said city).
3. This is probably a long shot, but anyone here a speech-language pathologist. How do you enjoy your job?
College students: have you registered for next semester's classes yet? What are you taking?
I fucking love brunch. Eating breakfast at noon, friends, curing hangovers, bloody marys, lazy sundays. Is there anything better than brunch? I go out to brunch every sunday with the same group of friends, give or take a few. It is the highlight of my week.
Do you have any regular get togethers with friends? What are they?
If not, why is it that you are here?
Will you ask me a question? The more ~scandalous~ the better.
What is the last food item that you were disappointed by?
Also, best cure for homesickness? She'll be missing her family, I know.
2. if you've ever tasted a raindrop, how would you describe the taste? different to normal water? gross? delicious?
3. working full time as a check out person at a supermarket would be terrible.. achey feet/back, boring, etc..agree/disagree?
Will you show me a picture of the nicest place you've been?
What was your best roommate/housing situation after you moved out of your parents' house?
If you disagree with the above statement, could you link me to your favorite question from the night?
What kind of pets do you have?
if the gift is from someone that you particularly care about, would you be more apt to pretend that you like it, or to tell them you don't?
if you gave a gift that the recipient didn't like, would you be offended if they told you so?
eta: my answers in case people give a shit:
The friend I went with now wants to go back to NYC in February. He wants to see snow and wants me to go. He also wants to take another friend.
January is when I need to reinstate my car insurance and my parents want me to get my own plan this year. January will also be my mothers 50th birthday and I would like to get her a nice gift.
I am also hopefully getting a promotion after Black Friday ( I work in retail.)
After all of these factors:
1. Should I be responsible and possibly not go. Pay everything I owe off, and not stress about anything like planning a trip or worrying about shopping for winter clothes?
2. Or should I say "what the hell, you only live once" and go for 4/5 days, possibly see some snow again, and make up for what I didn't see the last time I went?
3. If I do go, should I invite the best friend that bailed out on me last time? Risk hearing an excuse or worse, have her be pumped about it and then let down at the end again? Or maybe she'll actually go this time? How should I go about telling her about the trip?
one of my friends just texted me to see if i'd be down with a threesome and his girlfriend, and after i started really considering it, he started talking about how he doesn't see how adding another person could make the sex any better. wtf? what straight male says no to a threesome?
tl;dr. Would you tell him that you slept with the guy? Even if he asked, would you lie? Did you know that I didn't try to make that rhyme?
I'm just completely lost and I want to get her something she'll really enjoy and have fun with.
yeah, i don't really.
1) How do you motivate yourself to clean?
2) When you do clean, where do you start?

I'm sure you'll do better....
My dad always waits downstairs for me to get home, and then goes to bed when I arrive. Should I tell him before I leave that I might not be back until 6 or 7 AM or should I let this come as a surprise late tonight?
Should I inquire further?
If your school started a Quidditch team, would you join?
Quidditch or Calvinball?
EDIT If you could play any position on a Quidditch team, what would you play?
I registered the username "teacoup." Should I switch over?
2: If you're at work or if you just don't want to, will you describe what you see (clouds, rain, snow, leaves on the ground, sunshine, flowers blooming...)?
3: Where do you live?
ETA: 4: What is something you would like to do today? Are you going to / able to?
why did she do that? was her side of the couch really just not good enough?
who has today off? who has tomorrow off? who is the lucky bastard that has both days off?
My next class just cancelled (the professor also does the class after that, which is right after that. he said only theory, but we're guessing both are cancelled).
The only class I would have today is Chorus, which I have missed before, but know all the music already and pracitce at home a lot.
I feel like crap, as well.
Should I stay or go?
if you haven't, do you know of any other sites where you can review ads for money? what about those sites where you can tag pictures? i asked about it here before but i lost the link. :(
if you don't care about either of those, what'd you have for breakfast? if you haven't eaten breakfast yet, what was the last meal that you ate? i just had a bag of raisinets and gatorade. it was delicious.
Have you ever had an encounter with something supernatural?
Will you tell me about it?
(just make sure not to embellish anything or askingxalice will go nazi on your ass)
I almost never cry, so I surprised myself this morning when Amandine's "New Morning" brought tears to my eyes. I was okay for the first half of it, but when the violin came in I started bawling.

Also, I just ate a toasted everything bagel with chive cream cheese, and a banana, and I'm still hongry. Should I eat some yogurt or suck it up, fatty?
You are in the process of adopting a baby, it is certain you will get one within the year. You know you are fertile but you would rather feed one of the already hungry mouths in the world than create another one. Then, oops! your contraception method fails and you are pregnant. What do you do? What do you do?
Every time I paste a pic of a guy, over the name, it leaves a space in between. But every time I post a girl over a name, it does not leave a space. I spaced everything evenly and am doing NOTHING to influence this.
Why is it doing this, TQC?
i air dry the majority of my clothes but i put my pants and hoodies in the dryer and it's just increasing in how many times i have to run it. not only is it draining my laundry budget but it concerns my ~eco side~ quite a bit.

My answer: Sam & Max, California Games, Star Wars: Dark Forces/Rebel Assault, Day of the Tentacle, Lemmings, Beneath a Steel Sky.
2) What's the best you can expect in the next four years?
I've heard that if everyone in the US voted the liberal party would nearly always win.
4) Does anyone have a source for this?
5) Would this make you vote?
We have mandatory voting here, which I somewhat don't like because people who don't know what they're going on about are voting. I worry that if we didn't people would sit at home going "it wont make a difference anyway" (my sister does this now because she's an idiot and because she thinks the government is out to get her and will block all attempts to put her on the electoral roll).
6) Have you ever not voted when you cared about the issue?
7) Is there a parallel between the order of star ship captains on star trek and the US president?
2. In what setting did you meet all of your closest friends?
Is each person expected to be responsible for their own messes in common areas? (i.e. if you leave shit all over the living room you clean it up, if you cook in the kitchen you clean up after you're done)
Do you take turns cleaning the common areas? (you clean the bathroom one week, you clean the living room another week, you clean the kitchen another week, rotating between roommates/household members)
How long do you leave a mess before you clean it up?
How did you get diagnosed? If it was a therapist, how did you come to start seeing them in the first place?
Have you ever self-diagnosed for anything mental health related? (excluding stuff like OCD or ADD, which everyone is claiming to have these days).
ETA: When do you think it's appropriate to go see a therapist of your own volition (i.e. not being forced by parents/friends/other doctors)
I am buying my husband an Ipod Touch for his birthday today :)
I know the the 16 GB is obviously better, but the 8GB isn;t too bad is it?
And also, besides Costco type places, is there anywhere that would sell if for a better than somewhere else? (I dont want to order it from the internet, I am getting it today.)
Thanks for the help!

I'm from the States but in London for the year and my mom wants to send me presents for Christmas, but I don't know what kinds of things to ask for! I don't want to make her ship huge packages or ask for anything too expensive.
What kinds of gifts should I ask for? I'm at a total loss.
Do your parents ever call your grandparents by the same name you call your grandparents?
Ex. My mom calls my Nana "Nana" instead of "Mom" sometimes when they're talking on the phone.
Do your parents or grandparents ever call each other "Dad"/"Mom"/etc.?
Ex. My grandfather often called my grandmother "Mother" while speaking to her, and she called him "Dad" when doing the same. My parents have never done that.

Can you help me out by filling in the blanks?
GIVE ME ALL YOUR_________, ALL YOUR________ AND ___________ TOO.
What I think is probably another sinus infection went haywire yesterday with the headaches and pain. In my experience, at this stage the only thing that helps is a course of antibiotics. I am, however, too broke (until I get paid on Wednesday afternoon) to go see a doctor. The free clinic at uni is booked out nearly ten days ahead, too. I have a monstrous exam on Friday worth 60% of a subject, so rest is not really an option.
Can you think of any temporary relief type stuff I could use so that I can function and study etc over the next few days? What would you do?

What was the last thing you took/ate/did that you regret?
best homemade gift you've been given?
I'm purchasing a car from a dealer (for the first time in my life! all my other cars I found in the newspaper) and I want to make sure when I place my offer that I'm not insulting the hell out of the salesman. How low is too low? Example: the two cars I'm looking at are both '05 Hyundai Sonatas, one is priced at $8995 with 60k miles on it, the other is priced at $9500 with only 15k miles on it. I was thinking at starting my offer at 7500 for both of them... is that too low or could I get away with more? I want to get a deal, not screwed over by an angry salesman that I just pissed off.

I only see this child a handful of times a year. Based on that, is this too personal a gift? What would you think if you were the kid's parent?
Do you know any songs about nature? Could you tell me them/give me a youtube link?
I've already got the trip to Orlando planned. We're getting a park hopper ticket to Sea World, Busch Gardens, Universal Studios, Island of Adventure and the 2 water parks that are associated with those parks. In Atlanta, our only planned event is going to the Ebenezer Baptist Church and seeing MLK's gravesite. Other than that, I have no idea what to do in Daytona since I've only ever been in Orlando before.
Does anyone have any recommendations for what to do/see while we're down there? We're going in late June/early July so I know it'll be hot as balls and I'm prepared for that. How about any stops on the way, either going or coming? We're driving and I've never driven anywhere except Ohio highways and a little of Pennsylvania, so is there any area that I should be aware of as particularly chaotic and just let him drive?
Also, unrelated, but does anyone have a favorite icon community they could recommend to me? I've been looking for some new ones lately but I found that I really don't know where to look. Thanks!

I honestly don't know what mine is.
I'm done with classes for the day, I have no work, my boyfriend and friends are either, working, at school or just unavailable, and I'm sick of sitting on the internet!
Do you have any suggestions for what I should do today?

I'm not because of my lack of an attention span
3)american comics or manga?
2. What celebrity would you have a "you walk through the door, I pour bleach over my eyes and run screaming from the room" policy with?
3. Would you have a threesome with yourself and both of these celebrities knowing that this is the only chance you will ever have to have sex with either one of these people? (ie: If you were to say Anderson Cooper to #1 and Richard Simmons to #2, you'd have to have a threesome with Anderson and Richard, and if you don't, you will never get another opportunity to sleep with either of them again).
Pictures are a bonus.
1. when you think of your siblings, do you actually think, "this is my half-brother/sister"?
2. were you raised together or in separate homes?

4. how do you feel about step-siblings, if you have any?

What are your siblings names?
Hmm quick background story: my bf just joined the marines. He leaves for bootcamp on January 5. And graduates in April. Comes back for about 10 days and takes off for battle school. I dont know for sure how long that is. But he wont return until maybe June.
We are planning to get married around that time next year. We work together and have a 3 month old son.
Now we work together at a resturant. And he has been complaning that he wasnt making enough, which is true cause it pays horribly. So for the past few weeks he wasnt even showing up to work. I was th eonly one working.
Anyways his friend offered him a job in construction. He makes at least 1,000 a week. But since it is out of town he is gone monday thru friday. and will only be here for the weekend.
It took some talking but I finally agreed to let him work for this week.
He left this morning. When we finished talking just 2 hours ago he told me he was going to be there till December 18.
WTF. I dont understand how we agreed to just one week and now he is talking about how no we agreed to 5 weeks.
I am incredibly angry and upset he will be gone this long. Yes I get to see him on weekends. But he is going to be gone for almost 6 months next year. I want to spend time with him before then.
Also, how are we supposed to plan our wedding when he isnt here?
He says that he wants to work and save up money so I wont struggle while he is away. I understand this. And I do want to be supportive of him. Yet.
I really do not want him to work away from home when he can find a perfectly acceptable job right here.
What should I do??
Can you post a picture of something that most people hate that you like?
If you were in a room with me for 24 hours, what would we do?

I just found out that I need $1150 by the 26th of November to put a down payment on my tuition for school next semester, and I currently have $43 to my name. I already have a student loan, so that's not a route I wish to travel.
I work, but I only have one paycheck between now and the 26th, and that'll only be like $300.

how long do you think it would take you to get used to being a phone sex operator?
i'm not sure i ever could but i'd like to think so. i get guys telling me all the time what a sexy voice i have, and if it rakes in the cash... i just don't know if i could ever actually do it.
I'm worried that I won't be able to understand them and I'll have to ask them to repeat themselves, and I'll seem rude, or they won't understand me and there'll be some kind of verbal struggle. It just freaks me out for some reason.
That said, I am getting shrimp and snow peas with some fried dumplings. What would you get?
quick edit: also I just realized how amusing the fear is, seeing at my particular Starbucks I get a lot of asian customers and I understand them completely 99% of the time and most of my coworkers have a much harder time. I think it's because it's on the phone.

I've had to spend the night there before and it was extremely boring.
