Poll #1312070 For the Ladies

In the movie The English Patient, there's a love scene where the guy literally rips the dress off the girl's body, tearing it savagely under the inifluence of passion. How would you feel if your new lover ripped off your dress?

That's HOT! It's all acceptable losses in the game of lust

So I was just making some coals to cook some shisha, and as I was placing them onto the foil, the coal was stuck to the tongs. My oh-so-intelligent solution to this problem, was to move my fingers further down the METAL tongs to give myself more leverage to pry them apart.

Needless to say, I just burnt my right index finger, causing me to drop the aforementioned tongs. The coal falls onto the carpet and subsequently burns through to the floorboard within mere seconds.

I am made of win.

Aaah, TQC. I'm trying to write something ~*~romantic~*~ for my bf's Christmas card, and I got nothin'. I really suck at expressing myself with wurdz. I tried looking at the Love Letters section at Lovingyou.com, but they're all crap examples. It's a small card, though, so I don't need a lot to fill up space.

Does writing letters frustrate you too?

So, what kind of cookies should I make, TQC?

Okay, so, there's this dude who comes to pick up his cab every morning in front of our hotel.  We'll call him Joe.  Don't ask me why he can't just have them pick him up in front of his apartment complex.  He's been doing this for about a year, and while he's waiting, he comes in to the lobby and talks to me.  Sometimes this annoys me, but generally, I don't mind b/c it's 4:00 in the morning and it's not like I have something better to do.

So, this morning, I am sick.  Really sick.  I have a chronic health condition that periodically knocks me on my ass.  (Think vomiting 20-30 times a day).  And I'm laying on the couch in the lobby.  Yeah, generally, it's against the rules to do this.  But hey.  You made me work tonight.   No one could cover my shift, so I'm stuck here, and if they want me to stay, they will allow me to lay down on the damn couch.  You feel me?

Anyways, Joe strolls in at 4am just like he always does and asks me why I'm laying on the couch next to a trash can full of puke.  What a dumb question.  So I tell him I'm sick.  And he sits on the edge of the couch next to me.  Like way, way too close.  Joe and I have a certain restricted space bubble, and he is clearly and deliberately violating it.  So I pretty much shove him out of the way and stand up, because I'm all creeped out.

What a freak.

My job is sending me out to another office to help out next week. They're putting me up in a nice hotel and paying for all of my meals. Trouble is, it's in the (to me) middle of nowhere and I'll only be at work 6 hours a day. It's too far to drive back home and I'll likely be stuck in the hotel because they get a lot of snow.

what specifically constitutes a "kingdom"?

As in like "I will trade half the land in my kingdom for your daughter's hand in marriage".

Is it just the land that a king owns?

How does one become a king?

I would like to aspire to be a king, but I'm not sure if I can. If you own land, can you declare yourself the king of that land and your land will automatically become your kingdom? Is there some sort of legal process to becoming a king?

Like, if I buy a thousand acres of land, and declare myself king of that land, and then subdivide that land and build houses and stores and stuff on it and then rent out those houses and stores... do the people who rent houses and live on that land become like, my subjects and stuff?

If you were a king or queen, would you be a just and true ruler? Or would you be wicked and corrupt? Tell me about your kingdom and how you would run it.

EDIT:
My kingdom will be somewhere in the wastelands between Los Angeles and Sacramento.

I have a Minister of Agriculture and Reefer. I am also in negotiations with a neighboring kingdom to invest in the construction of a Colosseum.

I will be taking interviews for a court Wizard/Sorcerous. Apply within.

EDIT 2:
MY MINSTER OF AGRICULTURE AND REEFER FELL THROUGH. She is now an enemy of the kingdom. I will be taking interviews for her replacement effective immediately. Apply within.

Also, we need nubile women of child baring age for the harem. Apply within.

I never, ever have plans. Yesterday I made plans with two of my friends for tomorrow and today another friend invited me to go do something with her tomorrow.

Does this always happen to you too? On the rare occasion that I actually have plans, someone else will always invite me to something that I would rather do for the same day.

Should I just be honest with my friends and tell them that I would rather do the other thing? Or should I try to work it out where I see them in the morning and go out with my friend in the afternoon? (I have a feeling my friends aren't going to be up until later on in the day so this may get totally fucked up)

So I finally got a copy only to find out that it's perminantly subtitled in spanish.

question:
Should I go ahead and use the version with the spanish subtitles and just chock it up to further strangeness (it's going to be a pretty strange video), or should I wait and try and find a copy of the movie without subtitles?

This is the first attempt that I quit working on because I got frustrated.

Menu ideas/suggestions?

Hello all,
I'm applying for a job cooking on a sailing yacht next summer as a cook. I have no training, but a few months experience cooking for 20-40 people (mostly children). This is for at most 25 people, mostly adults, who will be chartering the boat for cruises for several days. I will be somewhat limited to a budget, but I'm trying to display my skills here, if only to give my hopeful employer an idea. All he asked for was a seven-day meal plan.

So, the questions:
Does it look good to you? They gave me no restrictions, but I can comply and substitute Vegetarian Meals if need be. I don't necessarily need to make the meals healthy, but they should be somewhat balanced. Any suggestions or additions?

What is your favorite thing to cook?

What is the last thing you cooked?

I just made an Enchilada dish. In a casserole dish I put a layer of whole wheat tortillas, some enchilada sauce, Monterrey jack cheese and the filling I created. The filling is ground chicken, onions, green chilies, corn, mushrooms, spinach, diced tomatoes, and red peppers. Then I put another layer of the tortillas and topped them with refried beans (which I just learned are incredibly healthy) and a little more cheese. Then I repeated the top layer with the tortillas, filling and sauce. Topped that with more tortillas sauce and cheese. So it's like 3 layer enchiladas or something. It's baking right now. I just made it up in my head so I hope it tastes good!

Do you ever get the urge to? I want to, but there are too many people being active around the general area of my house >:O

Also, what color socks are you wearing?

Girls: Which do you prefer, tampons, Pads, or Diva Cup?

Guys: Which would you prefer to use if you had to deal with that kind of thing?

If you really don't give a damn, what are some of your weird habits?

I have a long trip tomorrow on the train. Which season of show would you recommend for me for the ride? One that you like the whole season of? I haven't watched either, which do you like better over Blood Ties or Moonlight? I'm also thinking Pushing Daisies since I loved the first season. I'm behind on Heroes, Lost, Weeds, The L word and Degrassi so I was thinking that too, but I'm kinda in the mood for something new. Any suggestions? Thanks.

purses and things that go in it

Ladies - you have a small purse. What are the necessary things you MUST put in it? How do you make it all fit? I always have a hard time trying to pick :| and I hate big purses.

Guys - what do you always carry with you? Do you hate the bulgy pockets?

Books

I got the following books today:
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore
Trading Spaces by Drs. Les & Leslie Parrott
Watchmen by Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons

Have you all read any of these books? What do you think of them?

Why is it that, on TV, whenever someone takes a urine pregnancy test, "blue" is always the result, no matter if they're pregnant or not? 

Scrubs:

Jordan: It's blue.  I'm not pregnant.
Dr Cox henceforth runs screaming through the streets 'SHE'S NOT PREGNANT!  IT'S BLUE!"

Kill Bill:

Uma Thurman's character whose name escapes me: Read the box!  Blue means pregnant!

WTH, TQC?  Also, no at-home whiz quizzes actually USE color any more, it's all "1 line vs. 2 lines" or "Plus vs. Minus" or those digital things.

1. How many pillows do you need to sleep with?

2. Do you ever receive holiday cards signed with the sender's name along with their pets' names? Who are those people?


1. Two that have to be positioned very carefully or my body aches for days.
2. Yes, all my uncles and aunts do this, as well as my grandma.

I was in a minor car accident today. My bumper popped off, and my license plate was crushed, so I need to get a new one.

I don't know what to do, however. I'm currently in another state, Illinois, than the one the plate is from, Wisconsin.

How do I get a new license plate? Do I have to go back to WI?

I was thinking of changing my plates and license over to the state of IL anyway, but I'm not entirely sure how to do that...

Also, the car is my mom's and she hasn't offically "sold" it over to me yet. She says she needs to give me the title of the car and stuff. I don't really understand what that means, but yes.

Some help with this would be appreciated. Thanks!

Also, is it ok to drive without a license plate on the front of the car...?

Hey TQC- my boyfriend called me up and asked me to ask y'all a question for him.

My boyfriend's dad is wirelessly connected to a router for the internet. He keeps losing the signal, or has a very weak signal, and a slow connection. Is there a way to boost the signal or what is the problem that needs to be fixed so that the internet does not cut out?

TIA.

I just got in a car accident for the first time.

I was on the main road and someone pulled out right in front of me. My front passenger side hit her front driver side.

I thought it was my fault cause I hit her. My bf says its her fault for pulling out when I had the right of way.

Who's fault was it?

I'm going to be cooking for the first time tomorrow. I've never tried anything too difficult, as I easily screw up even the simple things like macaroni and cheese and cookies with pre-made dough.

But one of my culinary-experienced friends will be helping me because she wants me to learn how to cook! How exciting.

She is a vegetarian.
I do not like lettuce, tomatoes, onions, or peppers.

Do you have any recipes you could suggest for us to try?

Today I heard someone use the word "fine" to describe an attractive member of their preferred sex. As in, "he's so fine!" I swear I haven't heard that word used in this context in like...a decade or something. Am I wrong, and do people still say that?

What's the last time you heard someone using slang you'd thought was dead, in a non-sarcastic/not deliberately anachronistic context?

What slang phrase do you wish would come back into fashion? Personally I'm rooting for "rad" and "the cat's pajamas".

where do you draw the line between "their house, their rules" and "wow that is completely irrational" when you live with your parents/family member/a friend/some other person?

does that question even make sense?

Those who went/are going to college:

Do you love what you're majoring in? If not, why are you majoring in it?

I have always wondered this, tbh.
