What's the longest you've ever gone without sleep?

40 hours. :( I suck. I had to go to bed, I was getting dizzy, lmao.

Share an amusing story from your childhood/stupid thing you did/your kids/friends, etc kids did?

I ate gum off a city sidewalk. I was two. <.< Mom put a halt to that quickly. XD

ETA: How old was the person/you when this happened?

have you or a friend ever been to the TRL studios? have you recently watched TRL?

-------
I went down there once because Fort Minor was visiting, but my friend got in and I didn't. my friend has been on it 3 times I think. I remember seeing it one day a few years ago and just randomly catching my best friend in the audience (Gwen Stefani was visiting)

and no I haven't seen it in years.

If you were hungry at 1.09am would you go eat something?
If it makes a difference, you don't have to get up for anything tomorrow and you didn't eat at all excessively during the day.

Anything you fancied or something healthy? because we all know it's a sin to eat this late at night



How often do you nap duing the day?
If you do, is it needed or just indulgence/laziness?

My roomate is snoring. We share a room. She sounds like a garbage truck and I have to work at 7AM.

What can I do to make her stop??? Smothering her crossed my mind but I don't think that would be smart.

Do you snore/talk in your sleep/do something else weird while sleeping?

Using nair on a 9 year old* is stupid, y/n?

*see: Best Answer



ETA: Could be I read it wrong. I read it as it was mom's idea and doing, not as if the daughter had asked and been allowed to do it. So maybe that's my bad**.

How about this: Making a 9 year old use nair is stupid, y/n?


**Why can't I extricate "my bad" from my lexicon?

'Tis the season for college apps. Technical question:

Say you're applying to five schools, all of which need two recommendation letters each. How does one go about asking for these recommendation letters? I mean, can I really ask someone for FIVE letters? I have a total of four teachers I can ask for recommendation letters (my current physics teacher, last year's English teacher, and both of my art teachers), and, of course, my counselor. I happen to go to a rather large school where student-teacher time is limited, and I don't get stellar grades, see.

Also, if you applied to colleges as a high school senior, how many did you apply to, and which were they?

My boyfriend is incredibly stressed out lately and instead of making it better by being sweet and supportive i think I'm making it worse by coming off as overly clingy and in his face. I'm not really sure how to make him feel better.

For guys: if you were my boyfriend, what would you want me to do?

For girls: if you were in my shoes, what would you do?

What's a fashion trend you wish you could get into but can't?

Skinny Jeans. They look cute on skinny girls, but I am cursed with a badonkadonk.

If you could bring back a fashion trend, what would it be?

So I was watching Kath & Kim the other day and I saw them using this microderm abrasion / electronic / brush thing that moved in circular movements. They were using it on their faces and I'm pretty sure its primary purpose is to remove old / dry skin.. so anyone know its called? I want one to use on my dry knees and elbows.

In highschool, I found AP English Lit to be a very enlightening course - it helps that my teacher was equal parts passionate and ridiculously critical. I loved the books and poems we read, and understood better what truly terrible writing looks like, i.e. my first few essays in that class. With this context, I promised myself to never enjoy the equivalent of a steamy, literary dump ever again.

So, TQC'ers, much to my dismay, knowing full well what a terrible set of books they are, I read...Twilight, and the books that followed. Despite laughing at how dazzled I was by the liquid-topaz chagrin in the novel, gawking at the overt Mary-Sue that is Bella...I enjoyed the books!

So, TQC, I am clearly delirious/insane/possessed.

TL;DR - What good books do you recommend so that I can redeem myself?

Calling All Youtube Scholars

I am desperately searching for a series of videos on youtube about an Englishman who gets released from jail at the start of every clip and somehow ends back in the pokey at the end of the episode. He is wrongly accused of being a murderer but always says "only I never did it" when explaining the wrongful imprisonment to each person who listens. Does anyone know what the series is called?

Also, why have you gone through so much toilet paper this month TQC? Really now. Reduce your carbon footprint.

I don't know if I can handle my life here at school anymore.
I'm thinking about taking a leave of absence or something, and disappearing for a while.
If I can't do it and save my credits in case I ever want to go back to school, i'm going to just "run away."
I'm so miserable.



Have you ever ran away from something before? Not literally.
If I take all my money out- and get a train ticket somewhere, where should I go?
If I leave without telling anyone, how long do you think it will take my family to realize i'm gone?
Since i'm over eighteen, I can't get arrested for just going away can I?

I'm sick and my coughing and sore throat woke me up at 7:30AM when I don't have to be up for another hour and a half.
I have three classes today. I have to go to the last one to turn in a paper. Should I:

Go to the other two classes (10 + 12)?
Go to the 10 AM class and then come back and sleep for a little while?
Go to the 12 PM class and try and go back to sleep now?
Skip them both and sleep?

I'm pretty sure this doesn't count as an LJ support-related question, but it's always possible I'm being a moron, so feel free to tell me so: I downloaded the LJ login add-on, and it has since stopped working. As in, it's completely unresponsive even after repeated attempts to uninstall and reinstall. Anybody know how I can fix it?

And to make this post less dodgy: What does the voice in your head sound like? By which I mean your internal narration voice, not any schizophrenic hallucinations or alternate personalities. But feel free to mention those too, if you've got 'em. (Mine sounds like James Spader.)

I have to meet someone at 8:30am to give them something they left in my car.
Should I:
1. Meet them, go get my oil changed, come home, eat, and go to work?
2. Meet them, come home, nap until 11am, eat, and go to work?

I work for 6 hours, and then I have a three hour study session AND I have another test to study for. Sleep could benefit me, but I don't want to be lazy. My 3 month oil change was up last Thursday, but I still have 400 miles left until I reach 3000 miles.

Please help me!!!!

Probably tl;dr , but I'm at a loss of where else to turn!

I had a new friend that was visiting me. He parked in valet parking, ignoring the sign, and his car got towed.  I allowed him to stay in my apartment that night (even though that was not the deal), drove him all around the city, and leant him over $200 to get his car back, as well as missing classes that day. He promised to pay me back. He was immature and not at all self sufficient, and basically said "i have no way to get home, fix my mess!"

I got a new phone because the old one stopped working, and now I don't have his number. He only has a cell phone. I've also *never* had his address.  It's been 2 months now, and he's ignored every email I've sent asking for the money (which he promised to pay in 2 days).  He blocked me on AIM, Facebook, etc., and ignores all my other emails.  I have nothing in writing saying that he owes me the exact amount for the car because I'm an idiot, and I trusted him to pay me back. I know better now.  I'm totally broke, and I can't afford my rent or my books, and I NEED this money.

All I have is an email to him saying "when are you sending me a check?" and an email from him saying "I mailed it!" which was a lie (that was a month and half ago). My question is, how do I find this person? They're renting with a roommate, so they aren't in the phonebook. Again, he has no home phone, so I don't even know what to do.

Once I find this guy, what the hell do I do???

According to my marketing textbook, there four household roles used by marketers to analyze consumer behavior. Where do you fit in (you and your partner, or your parents, whatever)?

...

Autonomic (decisions are made independently by each partner)
9(29.0%)
Male-dominant (male makes most of the decisions)
8(25.8%)
Female-dominant (female makes most of the decisions)
3(9.7%)
Syncratic (decisions are made jointly by both partners)
11(35.5%)


(interestingly it says previously the woman made most of the purchasing decisions because her husband was at out working [think pre-1950], but since more women are out working men are making more purchasing decisions or they are being made jointly)

Do any of you go geocaching? What kind of GPS do you use? Where did you get it?

My boy and I went once using a really old school unit that he checked out from his university, and he loved it. I want to get him a GPS unit for Christmas, but I can only find the new-fangled car ones with maps and huge color displays and all kinds of fancy features. But that would take all the fun out of it, right? We just want to know what direction it's in, not how to get there!

I found this, because I thought those guys would be sympathetic to my needs. But they're all "GET THE BIGGEST MOST EXPENSIVE ONE YOU CAN. FEATURES FEATURES FEATURES." :(

Where can I get a unit without all this extra crap?

I have a friend who has a spare room in his apartment. (EDIT) He works for his apartment complex so that's how the rent gets paid, but he doesn't have any extra cash for furniture or food even. I desperately want to move out of my parent's house (I'm 20 and about to get into the really hardcore upper division classes and I need space for a mini studio).

So I suppose my question is should I ask to move in with him?

I would of course buy furniture, and do all the grocery shopping, etc to help out since the rent would be free. The only problem is that he didn't offer this to me, it would be me asking him if I could move in with him.

Do you smoke cigarettes?
If yes, how often do non-smokers get in your face about it?
If no, have you ever tried it? Do you think differently of smokers?

I'm actually allergic to cigarettes, so no, I don't smoke. But 90% of my family/friends smoke and are really good about making sure they're not blowing it in my face, so I don't rag on them. One of my friends, though, was disgusted to learn that so many of my other friends are smokers, and won't hang out with them because she thinks it's gross.

So far i am studying the civics.
Has anyone here been through this process recently?
Could you describe what it was like for you?
Was the test multiple choice? Was it simple?
They say the interview is two hours long. I imagine the interview can't last very long. What else went on during it for you?

Hello TQC,

In what situations would it be appropriate to wear white pants?  Like, is white too flashy for work?  Class?  Going out?  Errand running?

I have these white dress pants that I bought like a year ago and have NEVER worn because I always feel like they're a little too flashy.  But they're cute!  Apparently they're "winter white," so just a smidge off of regular white.  Help me figure out how to put them to good use, TQC!

- how long have you had it?
- do you know of any family members who have it?
- who knows that you have it?
- do you restrain yourself at all? (ex: wear gloves, sit on your hands, take medication, go to therapy, etc)?

those were just example questions. tell me anything!

Can you give suggestions (humorous, serious, illegal, or otherwise) on ways to get my damn spouse to just effing TELL ME WHAT HE WANTS, rather than playing the "learn how to read my mind" game? Because all that's doing is making me want to wallop him in the head with a 2x4.

(I've tried asking straight out, waiting for him to say something, asking leading questions ... everything but sodium pentothal at this point.)

ETA: I'm up in Utah, he's down in Arizona (at the moment ... him moving up here is another thing I can't get a straight answer on). Although if things keep going like they are, I might be making a road trip in the near future, and not for good reasons.

My professor just told me he coined the word "Sputnik" when he was working for Newsweek in 1957.

What's something interesting about a teacher of yours?

Will you make up a word?

EDIT He means that he coined the use of the word as a satellite in English language. He was the only Russian-speaking member of the staff, and when Newsweek initially reported on the Russian satellite, they didn't know what to call the thing, so he suggested 'Sputnik'.
He printed an article about it and everything.

I know how weird the "leave a comment in this blog for this person you don't know" posts can be, but I feel kinda justified in doing this for once.

if y'all know me at all, you know how ridiculous I am, and how people who put up with me are the best ever. Well, for once my best friend, Sarah, needs the help, and I feel at odds - so I was wondering if I could enlist my LJ friends' help with it, too.

She's just got college stress - like most people - but it's srs bizniss college stress, and I know it's about to start taking its toll on her. I know a bunch of just .. positive, go-get-'em comments from people who's been in the same boat would mean the world to her, and I want her to smile for once.

So, TQC, would you guys do me a favor and leave a comment in this entry in my other journal, please? I'd appreciate it a lot, kids.

Suggestions as to what to do with my free day? I don't mind taking trains, and don't want to spend the money on a long cab ride. Have thought of figuring out how to get to Georgetown and find "the stairs" in The Exorcist, wouldn't mind doing something Obama-y... have been to the Smithsonian once.

I do have really bad knees, so tons of walking will wear me out...

Is a mother who chooses to stay home and raise her kids, and makes sure her family is well fed and clothed with everything they need, but causes them to struggle financially otherwise, not as good a parent as a mother who chooses to continue working and put her children in daycare so that her family can be more financially secure?

What Christmas gift should I get for my superhot gay best friend? He is 19 and really into Jpop, and Britney Spears (its kind of our thing - I'd get him Circus, but he's getting it the day it comes out). He likes theatre and is an excellent dancer. He works at forever 21 and dresses really well. Last month for his birthday I got him an urban outfitters shirt and a David Sedaris book with some cologne, and now I'm wondering what else I can get him. He already has loads of coats and scarves and sunglasses. Thoughts??

Guys I came into the city for an interview and it went so well! Now I have like two hours to kill before the train home. Should i:

Get a drink alone (with strangers) at the train station bar? This could be fun.

Sit quietly with my ipod and a book of puzzles? This would be cheaper.


Also, every time I take the train/come to the city, I hope I'll meet a really cute guy. How do I go about this? There are not a lot of cute guys around today.

Also, on a musical note...

What movie do you think would make a great musical?

Is it RIDICULOUSLY hot for anyone else? I'm in Denver and it's in the mid-70s today with a bitching hot sun. It hasn't cooled down since the summer. I'm starting to get sick of the heat. :(

I have an odd, uncontrollable obsession with penguins.  (See icon…haha.)

My friend just came into my office and requested that I give him one of the penguins I keep on my desk.  He took my favorite (the Mr. bought it for me at Sea World on our first vacation together) and says that he will return it by Friday.  This friend is generally…  odd, but wouldn't do anything to upset me.  He refuses to tell me what he's doing with the penguin, but that I should "trust him" and when I find out, that I will "love him forever and ever and ever."

TQC, what is this man doing with my penguin!?!?

1.) Am I the only person who thinks it's completely moronic for someone to buy their teenager a brand-new car? Or am I just bitter because no one in my family ever helped me purchase my first vehicle?

2.) Do you prefer waffles or panckakes?

3.) What do you regret not doing sooner?

A question for the ladies.

Okay ladies, if you could have Vagina dentata (teeth in the vagina) and you could control it (as in they wouldn't bite anything you didn't want them to) and it wouldn't affect how normal sex feels, would you want them as a extra layer of protection against rape?

K guise, the other day this maniac of a woman kept knocking on our door.

My dad told me not to open the door to anyone and ignore phone calls unless I knew the number (we got that thing where it shows what calls the call is coming from).


So I listened to my dad and then this woman turns up and starts banging on our door and then she goes whacking on our garage door (you know... JUST IN CASE we didn't hear her smashing hitting our windows).

She went on for about 40 minutes and then she disappeared. In between the time she disappeared and her reappearence (and her continuation of banging on our door), I received a phone call from a number "501". Our number codes are 2 digits, our normal landline phone numbers are 7 digits and our mobile numbers are either 10 or 11 digits. Our country code is not 501.

I answered the phone but it went dead. I also didn't open the door because earlier, I heard this really loud, frustrated, scream from her that sounded like a wild beast in heat.


SO WHO IN THE WORLD DOES THE NUMBER "501" BELONG TO???!!!!!!!!

Next time someone decides to keep knocking on my door/calling our phones for over half an hour, what should I do?

The Poltergeist Series

So, do they ever explain why Dana (the oldest of the three Freeling kids) isn't in Poltergeist II? I realize the actress that played her (Dominique Dunne) died just after the first one was filmed, so maybe they just didn't want to be lame and have a new actress play her, but does the movie explain away the character's absence at all?

In the first one she's still a young teenager and the next one takes place only a year later, so it's not like she'd have gone off to college.

I watched Poltergeist II today because I wanted to know, but I have a terribly short attention span and quite possibly missed the explanation if there was one.

Did you know that the actress who played Carol Anne Freeling (Heather O'Rourke) also passed away at a young age?

When a 30 y/o single man you (a 25 y/o single woman) have been sleeping with for a month now says sleeping together tonight is too dangerous as he can't manage his head too well this week... what does that mean? (He has a court date for a DUI this Friday and has terrible wanderlust so wants to move to Africa after the school year ends in June-- he's a teacher. Doesn't want to have a relationship cos he thinks he's leaving).

Also, why would he say he's going out for a drink with one of his friends and tells you that you won't be "blocking" cos she's married? (He invited you as well..)

What did you all believe in when you were kids? What were you afraid of? Were these fears things you carried into adulthood?

(My worst fear was being killed in my sleep by a serial killer, lol. And I had a terrible fear of my cat's ghost coming after me. And thunderstorms.)

Have you ever been in a long distance relationship? Did the distance break you up?

When I go off to college my boyfriend is going down to work for his dad's business, so we'll be 3 hours away. I'm scared that we won't get to see eachother that often. I'd like to say that I'd go see him every weekend, but I don't know what to expect from college. I figure I'll end up being busy most weekends. And I'm scared one of us will find someone else thats closer. Are my fears irrational? We'll be this far away for my entire 4 years of college, except during summer/winter breaks.

My husband's brother is getting married in two weeks (yes, the one where I won't have a seat after dinner). The bridesmaids are wearing black, otherwise I would be wearing a black dress as well. I went out and found two that I really like, but I can't decide between them. I will be wearing black shoes with either one of them.

Girls, for those of you who grew up in cold areas, like New England, did you ever wear those knit tights under your dresses in the winter (instead of panty-hose)? Do you miss them?

Are those tights even made anymore? Do they come in adult sizes?

I'm missing them with the below-70 weather. I used to wear them under my pants when it was especially cold. I would totally wear them with skirts now, and be oddly retro that way. I haven't seen little girls wear those since I was like...10.
