[UPDATE]His temp is 100.4
If it matters, the guy in question is a potential love interest.
Ladies, do you wanna come home and see your man having sex with another man?
How would you react either way?
Which do you think is more accepted/common in our society-songs about men hurting women or women hurting men?
i've been preparing for this for years now but as 2008 draws to a close it's kind of killing me :(( when it comes to the tv watching part of me, anyway.
I could easily just tuck the poem in the cards, seal 'em, and mail 'em, and he'd never know.
Should I glue them in place (with a glue-stick), or should I shove-and-seal?

I've been looking at colleges very far from home but I realized I need some closeish to home options, too.
What's your favorite thing to order there?
When is setting things on fire not the best solution to your problems?
Do you have a particular type of pen or pencil you always use?
does anyone know what this is?
So, what websites do you go on that can keep you entertained for hours? Or even 10 minutes? I'm not picky.
What video games do you find overrated?
How about underrated?
do you like pizzelle cookies?
What's wrong with me?
It needs to be something fairly simple, because I really suck at painting.
am i the only person that gets really sick when they smoke after drinking even just a little? i seem to be alone in this. some of my friends say that they will feel sick if they smoke and drink a lot in the same night, but one cigarette when i'm even slightly buzzed will make me feel unbearably nauseated. i just drank a 22oz drink that was 6% alcohol and i went out and smoked one cigarette and the first few drags were wonderful but now i feel like shit.
i should have learned my lesson by now, but every time i drink a little i think, "well, i feel great! this time will be different," and it never is. clearly i am a retard.
Anyone think they can list the names of all the movies in order?
Who was inspired?
God why is there so much DRINKING and EATING over the holidays?
How do you deal?
And why are he and his wife so stupid as to try and proclaim they're 'just names' and that people who would treat them any differently than other kids are big meanie heads who just think that Nazis are STILL bad people?
And how can they possibly be shocked that a local grocery store doesn't want to write HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADOLF HITLER on a cake and think that writing Happy Birthday and leaving room for the kids name isn't a compromise, but a horrible mistreatment of their baby?
The article listed only physical ailments as their reasons for both being on social security, so apparently they're mentally competant...
WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THESE POOR CHILDREN WHEN THEY'RE SCHOOL AGE?
I'd like to point out my name is Stormy, and while I love it now, as a kid I got a lot of flack. I forsee a lot of playground beatdowns in these childrens' future. :(

should i make some pasta?
edit: pasta has been made! thank you for validating my unhealthy decision.
Have you ever had pickled okra?
If you live very far away from your original home, what do you miss about it?
What don't you miss about it?
Have you ever stopped watching a tv show because your favorite character died/left?
When I totally could have done better had I tried.
Have you seen the new The Day the Earth Stood Still movie? If so, what did you think about it? In any case, do you have any strong opinions about it you'd like to share?
Why do you think my cat will sometimes wake up and start meowing before going right back to sleep?
I've used the word 'Wronskian' so much this semester it has become absurd to me, and is now my favorite piece of jargon from this semester. It's a math function.
If you didn't go to school, what is your favorite piece of specialized knowledge from the time period encompassing the Fall '08 semester at Bob Jones University?
We have customer cards at work guests can fill out if they want to, and mail them in. When they do that, someone enters them into the system and emails us what the card said. A couple of weeks ago we got a comment card that said a guy and his friend had come all the way down to our theatre and paid to see Quantum of Solace just for the Star Trek trailer. They said that Paramount had released a statement saying the trailer would be in front of Quantum, and it wasn't on that particular print. Having worked at a movie theatre for more than a year and a half it seems like common knowledge that not every trailer would be in front of every movie, and I lol'd. Have you ever gotten a customer complaint that was probably legit but seemed completely stupid to you?
For the teal deer crowd: One of my favorite sounds is the sound of long nails clicking a computer keyboard and I often grow my nails out long before writing something. What is one of your weird habits?
What's your background? (ie where are your parents from)
What city do you live in?
Have any of you gone on a Birthright Israel trip? Which one? What was it like?
And for those of you who can't answer either of those questions, what kind of computer do you have? Do you like it?
Which was your favorite character? Cow, Chicken, or the Red Guy?
Let's not encourage those types of posts.
I need to send out a couple of tins of fudge, and I'm trying to figure out whether I could swing the post office on my lunch break. If you mailed presents, how long was the wait at your local place to send out packages?
2) When was the last time you felt rejected? What happened?
3) If you live completely alone, do you decorate from Christmas?
What was something from your childhood that you've wanted, but never got?
If you remember the Child Empress from Neverending Story, she had that little circlet with a drop down pearl thing. Whatever the fuck you call it. I always wanted one!
My dad is thinking of getting it, and my mom basically said I could get it, because our insurance covers it. I was thinking about it, but idk
how did that go?
did you take things slow, or just return to the way things were pre-breakup?
What would you do if you were in my situation?
a) Kindly ask a stranger to help me carry some of my things to the main entrance of the bus terminal and hail a cab.
b) Just ship everything home to Atlanta from Upstate NY, and then ship everything back to my address in NYC (resulting in double shipping costs).
c) Ship some things to the actual storage facility. This would require that I fill out paperwork, have my belongings shipped via next day delivery (which is expensive) because I was told that I would personally have to claim the shipped items from the facility and place them into my storage closet within 48 hours. I would need to ship next day delivery because I'm flying out of NYC on Thursday night.
d) Other ( you give me a better idea ).
What country do you live in now?
Would you ever move to another country (permanently)? If so, which one?
Any really good and simple recipes you want to share? I already got the vodka pasta one (zomg).
What do you think is the best movie of all time?
Where the heck can I buy a replacement gas cap for a 2002 Ford Taurus SES? How much do gas caps usually run for? Will I be okay driving around for a few days without it?
Sorry if I'm coming off as a moron. :(
Oh, and what's the last thing you did on a whim?
ETA: I went outside to look at it again, and there was a new gas cap on my car. I'm suspecting my mom drove over and exchanged them while I was asleep. LOL
did you need to take anything with you when you went into DSS?
did you know immediately if you were qualified or not?

I want to play in the snow. My boyfriend has promised me snow for years and he's finally serious, but I gotta find the snow.
I don't care about a snow park unless it's really cheap. I would not mind just driving until I get to snow on the side of the road, get out and play for a while and then drive back home. I'm really simple.
So where can I find some snow?
If you offer no help there;
Does it snow on your house often?
Do you love snow?
Do you hate snow?
Are you going to the movie theater over break?
Yes. I hope to go see Four Christmases and Marley & Me.
( Collapse )
What would you do it you were driving along a back road and a meth head jumped into the road?
What are your thoughts on salmon colored trench coats?
Gandalf the Grey or Gandalf the White?
if you have a paid account on flickr: with a paid account, are you able to edit your images after they are uploaded? I don't mean alter them using that picnick feature, but actually replace that image with one from a different file.
(I want to post better scans of a few things without deleting the original flickr pages and losing everyone's comments and favorites)
Sry to ask this here but I cannot find this info anywhere else.
Everyone else: how's the weather in your part of the woods?
ALSO: he is going to be four hours away from me in two days. I have to work. Should I skip work, drive the four hours, visit him for say two hours (if he can even get away) and then drive back? I want to, but it's super busy at my work now and I'd probably feel bad.
1) If you answered a personal ad, and when you exchanged pictures, would you be put-off if the girl had really short hair (like a pixie or a fauxhawk)? (But otherwise presented feminine)
2) In an attempt to avoid le wank, I will say that I am happy with how I look, etc. etc., but what dress size do you think is represented by 5'4", 140 lbs?
ETA: to be clear, #1 is addressed at guys too, despite the political language in the latter part. I just don't want to be like "durr, I know short hair doesn't bother lesbians, cause they love that shit" cause that's weird
What's the best kind of kiss?
How are you people spending so little at the grocery store?
Are you going out to dinner three times a day, four times a week?
If so, do you ever feel like you want to be able to see that person's account?
ETA: Eww, he is telling me about his relationship woes over msn.
Oh, the stupid... His choices were RUSSIA or BRAZIL. Hmmmm?
Do you like tater tot casserole?
Are my group members colorblind or something, or do they just have really incredibly shitty taste in graphical interfaces?
Today I learned that the ol' "if you want it done right, do it yourself" spiel is 100% true. What's the last proverb that proved itself true in your life?
Why do you like it (if you do)?
What's the healthiest thing you eat on a regular basis?

Tell me about the organization and give links if you have them.

2. In non-holiday questions: hats. Are you a hat person? Do they look good on you? Where do you typically wear hats? (I love my classy hat but I feel like I have to find a polo game to go to in order not to stick out.)
3. Favourite baked good?
A government scientist has discovered that baby seals can be utilized as a source of alternative fuel. Do you:
Refuse to allow the destruction of innocent animals as a source of fuel? Such behavior is highly immoral!
Allow more research to be done on the baby seals and begin implementing laws which allow for their use as a viable fuel source?
Allot government grants for more research to be done on other animals to see if they are good sources of fuel as well?
This is my question on the facebook application Nations today. What would you choose and why?
I like the shared laughter of an audience.
1) In the grocery store, why must the entire store be cold just because of the freezers? I'm getting sick and tired of freezing every time I go to the store.
2) Would you rather vacuum the floor or clean the dishes? Clean the dishes.
What are you sick of hearing about on the news?
If not, is there any other online behavior that bothers you?

What books did you have to read for school and ended up actually liking?
Animal Farm was good, although a teensy bit creepy.
- Almost Famous
- Cruel Intentions
- Girl Interrupted
What have you been doing today TQC?
What's for dinner?
I went to management. They called him to the back to talk. On my way out the door for lunch (which I'm on now), I see him walking back into the deli. Now I'm going to have to go back there and work with someone who just put a knife in my face.
TQC, what kind of legs do I have to stand on to refuse to work with him? I could tell them more about the problems he's been causing, of course, so that they have more of a reason to fire him, but he is the dept. manager's favorite atm, so it'd be hard to navigate getting him out of there. I'm thinking of telling them that I will be contacting HR about the fact that I'm working with someone who threatens people with knives.
I thought it was a little peculiar, but I don't know shit about ringing people out so whatever. When I looked at the receipt though, the gift set wasn't on there at all.
Would you take it back and pay for it or would you just keep it?
What sort of cosmic repercussions will I be facing if I don't take it back?
Our workplace is very casual.
Who wears ascots anyway?
What should I do at the laundromat while I wash and dry my 8 billion loads of dirty laundry?
I don't want to lie to my friends, but replying honestly just tends to make things really akward and uncomfortable (life is a giant clusterfuck at the moment, my dad has just been diagnosed with cancer and will be in hospital getting chemo at christmas; my dog is really sick and mum and I are desperately trying to work out a plan where we are both at home for at least one day so we can both be there when we get her put to sleep)... I haven't seen any of my friends in about a month, because I flew out with about 12 hours notice when dad was hospitalized, and now I'm home for a few days and playing catch-up with all of them.
I don't want to say I'm fine, because that is total bullshit; I also don't really want to talk to most of them about it at this stage; but I want to be able to reply without feeling like I am being a big fat drama whore by going ~!~I don't want to talk about it~!~
How do you interact with friends when you feel like shit but there's nothing they can do about it? They keep trying to be helpful, and I love them dearly for it, but I really can't deal with hearing more platitudes about how it will all be alright and how brave I'm being. On the other hand, I really don't want to sit through more hour long discussions on christmas presents, because christmas is about the furthest thing from my mind at the moment...
If not, would you like my brother's advent calendar? He is a shit who doesn't like delicious chocolate from Germany.
What is your favorite dish to eat for dinner?
A friend of my dad gave me his very expensive camera after we had a discussion about them. I told my mom's friend that his tripod for his digi was really cool so he handed it to me and told me to keep it.
Should I take my final or should I stay home and save my time and gas?
ETA: Ok, I've decided to go.
New question -- When was the last time you did or almost made a big mistake?
What is wrong with my stupid cat?
Srs and non-srs answers encouraged!
Will you post a picture of yourself having a good hair day?
1 must be a person
1 must be an object
1 can be an "other" (pet, food, another person, whatever)
What was the designer thinking? O_o
(It's also lacking an option for "computer geek", which I find amusing from an online quiz.)
And second, for those of you who attended grad school, how long did you wait after your undergrad? I'm pretty sure I want to take at least a year off to start working on paying off those loans, but not sure how long I should wait before jumping back in.
non srs and srs.

The negative reviews say that the gears used in the KitchenAid machines are plastic and burn out quickly. I'm not quite sure what to believe.
Do you have a KitchenAid Professional 600 Stand Mixer? Should we get one for my mom?

My tip for you: If you skid on ice, turn into the skid.
which would be worse to suck - monkey balls or mangy donkey dick?
eta for context.
ME: unfortunately her grades suck mangy donkey dick lol.
OTHER PERSON: I believe the correct metaphor is "monkey balls".
ME: no. definitely worse than monkey balls.
Do you have any mental issues?
Have you ever known someone who you can genuinely describe as psychotic?
a What should I buy, and what am I likely to be able to rent?
b My balance is kind of terrible, so I should ski rather than snowboard at first, right?
c OK, I'm looking at ski pants... do I wear those over another pair of pants? ... I do, right?
c.1 Should I buy a pair that's like, the same size I wear in normal life, or buy a size up, since they're worn over pants?
It doesn't have to be written for someone completely computer illiterate, just without a lot of knowledge about proxy servers, onion routing...thingies....and so on.
What's your opinion on internet privacy? Exaggerated threat or srs bzns? Do you take any measures to hide your IP address?
There is absolutely nothing remotely illegal in my browsing activities (though I'll say nothing about my p2p activities) but I just feel extremely paranoid about this. It's just this strange obsession I have about privacy. Anyone else like this?
If you have, how did it turn out?
If you haven't... is it just New Zealand being way too bored or we're just so awesome?
IS THE PHOTOCOPIER AT YOUR WORK PLACE MADE OF A LOT OF WIN (assuming you know how to use it)?
