I just got invited to a holiday cookie exchange. Everyone's going to make a ton of one kind of cookie and then we all swap around so that everyone ends up with, like, 1/2 dozen of each type of cookies.
What type of cookie should I bake? (Bonus points for including your favorite recipes.)
(I like to make gingerbread men every year but I have yet to find the most amazing recipe, plus they are too labor-intensive! Yet festive. Right now I'm leaning toward Mexican wedding... And I have to call dibs fast!)
Have you ever actually given someone a CD hoping they'd get the hint that you were secretly in love with them? Did they get the hint?
Like two years ago I sent the song "Oh My god" by Pink & Peaches to my crush to give him the hint that I wanted him to "put me on the table and make me say his name" BUT HE DIDN'T GET THE HINT. HELLO? IT WAS SO OBVIOUS. But I finally told him and got in his pants and now it's kind of a throwback song. Haha.
How would you say you compare to one of your peers?
Have you ever been pulled over?
What were the circumstances?
Did you ever get fined?
Will you tell me a joke?
I just took one and happened to look at the date... it was filled in 2004! WTF dad? Who keeps medicine that long in the first place, and second, why give it to me?
I'm not mad. I actually find it somewhat amusing (if you knew my dad, you'd understand). I have no idea how potent it will be after hanging out for 4 years, but let's see. I
Has anyone else ever taken expired medication?
"So, Bekah would like to come on Thursday because she wants to redeem herself. She's been a crazy bitch lately and doesn't want you to see her that way. Is that cool?"
When I really said that I'd like to come because he's leaving town Friday for the weekend, so we wouldn't see eachother for a while unless we all hung out.
Ummm.... words in my mouth much?
Don't get my wrong (and dear god don't judge me on what I just confessed, heh): I don't like these shows to the point that I TiVo them. I watch them for laughs and in no way take them seriously. And, since VH1 plays these shows all the damn time, I'm almost gauranteed an episode laying in bed at night getting ready to go to sleep (as I am now, with "Rock of Love: Charm School" on the tele).
I admit that I really enjoy VH1's Scream Queens and Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew (I LOVE Dr. Drew). I do TiVo these shows. I think Dr. Drew does a great job at what he does.

Any guily pleasures that you'd like to share? ^__^
2. This has probably been asked, but I have been in denial and would not have noticed. I thought sexism was all but dead. Evidently, I was wrong. How prevalent do you think sexism is in our society? What form does it usually take?
3. My computer is not on its last leg, but its last toe. (I have been in denial about this, too, proving that it is not just a river in Egypt.) Should I buy a used laptop or spring for a new one? What kind should I get?
if you don't care about ex drama, should i drink? i have vodka and sour apple mixer and orange juice.
2. i'm applying to borders for badly-needed supplemental income, as my job does not pay enough. on a scale of 1-10 (1 being the worst idea you've ever heard, 10 being 100% fine), how bad of an idea is it to print off a copy of my resume for a different (non-competitive, additional) job at my "real" work?
Have you ever been familiar enough with a specific penis or vagina that you could distinguish it from other penises and vaginas?
Like, is there anyone who you could recognize just by looking at their genitalia?
serious and non serious welcome.
How come whenever we get the first snow of the year, NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO DRIVE?! I think the roads are covered in snow for about 102 months out of the year and we get a light dusting and people act like they've never driven before.
Why am I still up?
Is it me or does the plot fail to make one iota of sense?
What was the last show that you had initially liked but quit watching because the writing went down the tubes?
Why did you quit watching?
And for those of you still watching, how do you feel about the poor misunderstood "I don't mean to be a killer. I can't help it" Sylar storyline?
[Mainly geared at UK people, please!!]
[There is quite a high chance I am going to fail my second year and I am *terrified*]
Isn't Pro Plus good?
[It has kept me awake to do work...and now given me the shakes because I don't drink coffee and haven't had Red Bull in ages so I am relatively caffeine-free]
Have you ever done something for years, then suddenly started doing it wrong?
[That is badly phrased, but I mean, for example; I have been doing a sport for about 5 years now and in the last few weeks I have started doing a technique wrong and I can't seem to stop it, grrr.]
Is your mind racing now?
What was the last news story you read about?
What's the furthest you've ever walked?
What's the furthest you've ever ridden a bike?

Is it better with midgets?
PS - It's totally legit to go to the DOL in my jammies, right? I'm already officially a social pariah!
However, his car's not insured. (I know, I know, he kinda has to do that.) If, for some odd reason, I get pulled over and I'm driving his uninsured car, will I get in trouble, or him?
What was the last thing you or someone you love used crayons/pastels/chalk/colored pencils? It's been a couple of months.
Anyone else with kids scan their work and put it on the net for safekeeping or an album type thing? It occurred to me the other day to do this instead of keeping masses of paper in boxes. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3223/3041207876_72f80d2212.jpg?v=0
Do you upload your own doodles and artwork? Share pics?
What do you do with the tins popcorn and holiday cookies come in? I put gifts in them.
ETA: Blizzard is home to some MMORPG. It's a joke off the fact that people have to wait to get their fix because Tuesday is maintenance day.
I am baffled. Is he insinuating that I remind him of a cute little Korean boy that can't really sing? What should I say back? Srs and non-srs answers pls.
What's the last musical (if applicable) that you went to see?

how much money do you spend weekly on what on?
what do you do when you're on the bus?
what newspapers do you read?
and finally, guys: blow job or hand job? girls: oral or fingering?
Supposing you wanted to do like in movies and TV shows (particularly crime dramas) where you take a picture of a face you want to look like to a plastic surgeon and have them reconstruct you to as near as they can get with your head size and shape, how much does that tend to cost in an average case in a person healthy enough for the surgery? (Either from search engine-ing or personal experience, I just wanted to be able to attach a price to it in my head. I should be in school to be actuary instead of a sports commentator...)
Did anyone else get motion sickness of any sort from playing Mirror's Edge? All I get is a headache, but the game was definitely the cause...
if so, what do you normally choose to have?
if not, WHY?
EDIT: Okay, apparently internet in Australia sucks more than I thought it did. :(
How would you feel if someone asked you out on a first date via text message?
When I am done with that, should I go and do some photography?
A guy I used to sleep with messaged me on myspace. I don't know what to say! What would you do?

It makes me so sad that the one kids friends are calling him fat and telling him he needs to loose weight so they can get girls. How do you feel about it?

Right, i am considering changing my name slightly and i'd like peoples input. My name currently is Jennifer Susan Campbell. I am wanting to add in Ruth for a couple of reasons.
1- its part of my mums middle name, and i dont have a family related name at all
2. my mum wanted to call me Jennifer Ruth so she could call me JR (from Dallas) and i kinda like that. my dad vetoed it though (and thankfully my mum vetoed Sandra....)
So i just cant quite decide on what combination to go for.
Help me change my name
Which do you like best?
Here are my sims questions:
1. Do you use cheats? Money cheats are my favorite =]
2. What kind of families do you make? Do you make a single person and make them struggle to find a SO or do you make a couple and just turn them into SO's right away? Pets? Kids?
3. What's your favorite career track?
4. Favorite expansion pack? Stuff pack?
5. Which expansion or stuff pack is the most overrated/waste of time/money?
6. Do you make a sim of yourself or just do a random person?
7. Am I weird for making a family of my fiancee and myself? Is it weirder that when I'm mad at him IRL that I do mean things to his sim?
8. How long do you usually play? Do you lose track of real time?
Does anyone still play the first sims still? I hated sims 2 at first and vowed to stay loyal to the original, but I saw the light about a year ago =]
mama says go buy a really cheap and ghetto phone for now and wait until i can get an upgrade. that is in about a year and a half.
i want to buy a good phone, probably the blackberry curve because i text 90% more than i talk on it.
should i be a brat and buy the curve, for probably $280 on ebay? is it a good phone?
OR is there an older blackberry/PDA/qwerty sprint phone i can settle for?
the motorola Q is under $100... worth it? is it huge? :[
We do talk about everything that bothers me, it's me that runs out of bothersome or isn't having to talk about much problems after a while so I start to talk about just stuff.
My question, TQC: what can I do for 4ish hours in the backseat of a car to distract myself from their "omg I missed you so much bb" lovefest in the front two seats? D:

I AM GOING TO RED LOBSTER FOR DINNER.

what would you order if you were going with me?
Police Officer, Wedding Planner or Therapist?
Have you ever eaten Flamin' Hot Cheetos with cream cheese or sour cream?
I remember eating it like that in middle school.
at the end of it, you have resolved not to talk to them because of what they said and how they were acting.
today they send you a text saying "when you see this please call i have something important to ask you"
do you ignore it? OR do you answer with a text that says leave a message?
im not sure whether a text saying that will weaken my position or not. i also have a feeling that the question might be whether or not im driving him to school this weekend. in which case i will get pretty angry.

3. What's for dinner?
What was the weather like today in your area of residence?
What hurts on you right now?
Did you ever try to get good at writing with your non dominant hand?
Did it work?
What did you do to get to that point?
who and why?
will you cheer me up by sharing your favorite winter memory?
Don't you hate when questions like this are asked on tests? WHAT THE FUCK does that have to do with my knowledge of the US government?
How much do you pay a month? (You as in your household, not you personally)
Comcast says their cable is $29.99/month for 6 months. How the heck much is it AFTER that?! It doesn't say anywhere.
Is DVR worth the $99 installation fee and extra $20/month?
Edit: Do you remember if you had to pay installation fees for just regular cable/internet? Verizon has a $20 fee for the internet and Comcast had a $140 fee for God knows what .. that seems crazy, but maybe I'm just naive?
What were the side effects?
He's only lived here for under a year, however, so the guest list won't be huge. Maybe 20 people if we're really lucky? Most likely less. We decided just to make it casual and are having a BBQ with banana fudge cupcakes made by yours truly as dessert.
We want to make it a good party, obviously, so does anyone having any tips for throwing a memorable 21st without too much effort? It's next week so...yeah! Haha!
Points for original ideas!
I am probably getting my own radio show on Brown Student & Community Radio this coming Spring and I have no idea whatsoever what to call it. I am seriously going crazy because I am terrible at naming things, I come up with the most awful word combinations. Things I'll be playing: B-sides, novelties and oddities from established musicians, super-local and unsigned music, and experimental sound from people who aren't necessarily musicians. Thank you to the suggestions I got earlier, some of them were so awesome.
And a new question:
What geometric shape does your face/head most resemble? How about your feet? We can talk in terms of household objects or animals, too. My feet look like pieces of toast or loaves of bread, while my face is the proverbial moon face.
What should I develop an addiction to?
Has it started snowing where you are yet?
Will you recommend a book to me? I usually prefer non-fiction that deals with science, but I will take any fictiony suggestions as well!

2. Due to an impending migraine, and the fact that just one has done nothing for me in the past, I just took two Fiorinal capsules. TQC, am I going to die?

For the healthy eaters, do you stick to moderation, limit yourself to only the healthy dishes or just "let go" for the day?
Same for Ativan/Lorazepam?
I plan on going to this place to see Grand Buffet. I already have my ticket.
don't say it depends, just think of a number =]
What did I do TQC?
What isn't legal that should be?
For example, every time my roommate has a question, she goes, "Question: What are we doing tonight." "Question: What's for dinner." "Question: Where are my socks?" It bugs the heck out of me.
What are some phrases that really bug you?
What if one of them is your roommate? (My roomie started dating one of our mutual friends. Now I'm afraid that if I go into the living room, where said roomie always is hanging out, I'll catch them doing stuff or interrupt them.
How many different brands of soda can you think of/remember?
What items of yours specifically would you pack (you have plans to go out one night with old friends, but otherwise will just be hanging out with your family)?
I'm using my brother's credit card to order the book tonight from www.epica.com and I need the book a few days before the opening night of the play which is December 4. One of the cast members has decided that he may not chip in any money because he's "already put in a lot of money into this play." Everyone has agreed to pay except for him.
The question is:
Should I get the standard shipping so that I will definitely have enough money to pay my brother back even if the other guy doesn't chip in or should I get the 3 day shipping and owe my brother a couple of bucks if the other guy doesn't chip in?
Why the hell won't TireRack.com release my tires until I prove to them that I have 3 other tires of the same make/model?
(Husband got a flat a few days ago. We can get a new tire cheaper through them and have friend of ours mount it for free as opposed to buying a new one from Sears and having them do it. However, Tire Rack won't even SHIP the fucking thing until I assure them that, yes, we have 3 other of the EXACT same tire. Is this shit? Am I crazy?)
yes. and don't give me bullcrap about getting the flu from the flu shot.
For those of you that have, what was your relationship to those that you've lost? Do you feel you deal with death in a healthy way? (Are you able to be happy at the memories of your loved one, or does the thought of them continue to hurt you more than anything else?)
If so, did it ever happen while you were driving?
Cause I learned it as times tables and then we built on that for tens and hundreds, etc. Kids these days are using some kind of lattice grid deal.
2. I don't wash my hair every day because then my scalp will dry out and life will suck. BUT my scalp gets to smelling kinda bad between washes. How do you think I can fix this without getting greasy roots?
Where do you live?
When was the last time it snowed where you live?
I like human names and nouns for animals but I've had him for about 2 weeks now and nothing is sticking. No distinct markings except for the little shape on the tip of his nose.

Lately in the past three weeks, I am so mean. I throw as many people as possible under the bus (OK, only if they deserve it), I yell, and I am always looking for reasons to bite people's heads off.
Everyone gets angry sometimes but this does not seem to be wearing off! Do you think there is something seriously wrong with me? Or is it just the anger I kept inside all these years finally coming out?

Could you suggest some music for me? I'm mostly looking for upbeat, kind of electronic, dancy kind of alternative music. Like Of Montreal, MGMT, Franz Ferdinand... but a little darker. do you know what I mean? a little more sexual perhaps. something that gives it that extra oomph, you pickin' up what I'm puttin' down?
if you can't meet my extremely picky musical needs, what are the bands you've been listening to lately?
Are you like me and will listen to practically anything outside of industrial sound and new age music?
ETA: Thanks to everybody! I'm listening to everything right now.
C'mon, you know you kind of like at least ONE song. DON'T DENY IT.
