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?
A Cherry and Coke Slurpee and enough combination spring rolls with peanut sauce to make my stomach explode.
What is the last thing your parents' gave you?
My dad gave me 50$ for shelving at my new place, and my mom gave me a very special housewarming present containing a vibrator.
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.
will you show me a political macro to cheer me up?
ETA any macro will do, because i love silly animals :)
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 boyfriend is an EMT and there was a run today for a 3 year old female who had been sexually assaulted.

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?
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?
Is it poor form to repeatedly ring the bell if they do not answer the first 2 times you rang? (and no, they did not yell out HANG ON or COME IN)
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?
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?
Old 70's bell bottoms. Those were the shit.
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?
Also, why have you gone through so much toilet paper this month TQC? Really now. Reduce your carbon footprint.
Edit: It's animated.
ETA: After reading this question, did you try to do it?
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?
is there any other site like fileden that wont delete my songs after 30 days?

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?
It's currently cloudy, windy and 31F outside. Should I:
EDIT: I went for a run. I'm so hardcore. Hell yeah.
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.)
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.
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???
Why the hell does my fingernails grow like they are on steriods? I am seriosly filing the bastards everyother day.
Does your grow fast or slow?
I recently lost my fingerprint on my left ring finger, and i don't have them on my pointer fingers... I can be a gangster now? Y/Y?

...get a 10" tattoo on your back that says PALIN FOR 2012 and a picture of her face? You can't get it removed until after 2012
...have your name entered onto the sexual predator list? Like other members of this exclusive club, you have to declare yourself to new neighbors and new employers and whatever else the rules dictate. Anyone can view the website and see your name and whatever inconveniences or shame accompany other predators shall be yours
...go on the world's biggest roller coaster without the security bar in place? It's actually removed entirely. The only thing keeping you in your seat is your kung fu grip and feet braced against the seat in front of you
...eat an entire 3' midget? He died of natural causes, and from his body, a chef will prepare several steaks, coup, kabobs and sandwiches of him. You eat everything from the midget except the bones. He's only 3 feet. How much eating could that be?
...drop a brick off the top of the Empire State Building at noon on a busy Monday morning? Everybody's walking around the streets, going to lunch. Your brick may hurt someone. It may land on the street safely. Who knows? Once you toss over the brick, you walk down the stairs and whatever happens afterwards will be on your conscience
...visit every Baskin-Robbins in the world and have a single scoop in a cone? You have 7 months to complete this task and you have to pay your own way

How can I find them?!
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?
My main question is: will I learn enough in a month to make it all worth it?
How awesome was Tom Poston?

What is a wacky gift I can get for under $40 USD?
And Starbucks gift cards are OUT, cause the nearest SB is 2,000 miles away.
EDIT: My secret Santa person is a guy. So the vibrator suggestion...ummm not so much...
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.
2- Would you trust a man named "Arnold Rapetacular" with your groceries?
2b- What about your spouse?
2c- Your wonderful, fluffy, cuddly-wuddly doggy/kitty/bunny/goldfish/hamster?
3- Would hot chocolate be bad to have with my lunch-- which is consisting of a steak and cheese sandwichy thing?
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?
Any other details i should know?
Include yourself, if applicable.
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!
What was it?
2) When was your last trip to the ER? Were you the one injured/ill?
- where do you pull from?
- what are your habits (ex: eating it, running strands across your lips, using tweezers, etc)?
- 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!

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.
Do you think I would ever find a best friend? Most of the friends I ever had only talked about themselves and ignored me when I tried to talk about me. :(

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.

I do have really bad knees, so tons of walking will wear me out...
Good restaurants? Things to see? Off the beaten path? Recommendations welcome!
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?

You've been given the power of X-ray vision! However, to activate it, you have to consume an entire box of Twinkies (the duration of the x-ray vision lasts 2 hours). The calories are burned off in the process of using the power, but you still have to eat a box of Twinkies to use it. How often would you use this power?
You've been given the power to read anyone's mind! However, every time you use your mind reading, you lose your earliest memory. Every time you use this power, your next earliest memory is completely erased. How often would you use this power?
You've been given the power of super strength! Able to lift over 20,000 lbs (about 10 tons). However, every time you use this power (lifting/moving something that no mortal can), you lose all control of your bowels. How often would you use this power?

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!?!?

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
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?

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.
EDIT: I'm doing empirical research, not an opinion piece.
