WTF what is it?
WTF what is it?
Should I take another?
Should I have no life for the next two and a half years and slave to graduate early?
Should I take it easy and graduate three and a half years from now like everyone else?
Is college even worth it?
How about graduate school?
What do you hope to get for christmas, and think it's possible, but you're not sure about?
Should I have taken the purple & gold tweed hat or the blue & gold tweed hat? The purple is more of a neutral, while the blue is more of a showy accent for a plain outfit.
As hilarious as this video is, I'm confused. Is this happening to anyone else?
I WOULDN'T BE HAVING THIS PROBLEM IF MR. PO3 HADN'T BROKEN MY SHIT IN THE FIRST PLACE. Moron. *kicks him*
ETA: I'm running WinXP.
My feets are COLD.
What can I do to warm them up???
Go to my grandma's at four, eat, talk with my cousins, and then open presents. I hope to come home and open my presents from Mom and Dad then instead of waiting until tomorrow.
is anyone else wearing an ugly holiday sweater today?
(I'm debating whether to get my mom to watch it -- on the one hand, she and I loooove movies like You've Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle and this fits right into that category, but on the other hand, there are whole plots revolving around making porn, and...my mom's a nice little conservative lady at heart.)
What should she do? She can't afford to nor does she have the time (Christmas portraits later, damn) to see a professional.
What kind of person would your pet be? How would s/he dress?
Should I email the chick we got our new cat from on Craigslist to give him back? Do you think she'll take him back? Should we get a refund since we got him up to date on his shots and everything?
ETA: the new cat is mean to our other pets. he smacks them for no reason really randomly for just being in the same room. it has gotten to the point where the alpha cat (in icon) runs from him and the other cat howls randomly in the middle of the night from being smacked. i don't think this is fair to our established pets.
Why are they doing this?
Is the paper cursed, or posessed?
2. What was the best gift you got for someone else this year? What makes it awesome?
I really wasn't sure how to take him as host, so I was just wondering:
Any TPiR viewers on this community, how do you think he compares to Bob?
and she goes, "Well, Emily, if you don't think there's potential to be with him forever, don't you think it's kind of a waste of time? Come on."
and basically said that it's pointless to get involved with someone you already know you don't see marriage with.
to which i replied O_O
TQC, do you agree?
i don't see anything wrong with dating someone you don't see a serious future with if you like each other at the time and are having fun. and you never know! maybe they will be ~the one.
I get about two weeks severance and my vacation time paid out, so it'll be about three weeks of pay.
I'm interested in going back to school to take a three-week course to be a CNA, since my English degree is pretty much useless in this area, and being a CNA seems like a good stable job and I think I'd be good at it.
I also just got hired to wait tables part-time at a new upscale Italian restaurant in my town.
My question is:
Has anyone done this after being laid off?
Are you still able to work part-time if you are on unemployment?
How/where can I find out if my school can be paid for as a continuing education thing? I live in PA and I've googled all over and can't find a concrete answer.
Are you traveling at all today?
what icing tip should i get?besides wiltons 1m one?
I haven't heard anything from my professor. I emailed him and got no response. I called and he didn't answer. He doesn't have set office hours.
What do I do?!
What Christmas/holiday song is going to make you snap and start killing people or something if you hear it played on the radio ONE MORE TIME???????????
It has a fridge, a microwave, and it will likely be okay-enough weather (Charleston, SC) for us to use the outdoor grill.
What would YOU put on your grocery list for shit that doesn't need to be cooked in an oven/on a stove?
Our whole family will be in Charleston for the week, too, so we'll likely be eating out occasionally. we just need a few dinner/side dish/lunch options. I'd guess we can just live off sandwiches and chips for lunch every day.
I can't imagine letting either one of the friendly greetings get me upset.
1) Anyone over the age of sixteen who can't drive or have a license?
2) What would you want your last meal to be?
1) I'm nineteen and I don't have a license. I'm not ready yet and I'm partially terrified of driving.
Edited: For my answers and to clarify question 1.
Bonus points for links or videos! :O

For those who don't care, how's your holiday season been so far? Tell me about it. I am feeling really shitty about mine and so I want to hear about everyone else's so I can relate and stop being grumpy.
Also, why can't I wrap presents? It's like I've got some sort of mental deficiency that applies only to wrapping gifts and cooking. Can you wrap presents? Do you like to?
I am going to try to cut back on paper waste by only buying books from used bookstores or going to the library instead of buying them new.
Which leads me to my other question: How does library book donation work, exactly? If I donate books to the library, will they slap a barcode on it and stick it on the shelf or sell it in a library book sale or do something else "good" with it? Is there any chance they would just throw my book out, assuming the book isn't "inappropriate" for the library?
This is what the calendar should look like (minus the red circle):
Notice each event only spans one day. Notice the day circled, Jan 7th, has 2 events.
This is what the calendar looks like for a coworker:
Notice each event spans 2 days. Notice the day that had been circled in the other one, Jan 7th, has no events.
wtf did he do?
2. If so, how much did it cost?
3. What is the difference, to you between a regular bikini wax and a Brazilian wax?
To the mens- Brazilian waxes, yes or no?
Edward or Jacob?

If you go to http://umbrellatoday.com/ and put in your cellphone number (along with zipcode) it'll send you a text letting you know if you'll need an umbrella on a certain day or not.
ETA: Will you show me your fashion 'must-have' for 2009? I feel like ohh'ing and ahh'ing at pretty clothes & shoes. kthanx.
On Thanksgiving, he didn't get the rickroll and said to me "What is a rickroll?"
He is on the computer as often, if not more often, than I am. Where the hell has he been?
1) When did you join LiveJournal?
2) Why did you join LiveJournal?
1) Early August of this year.
2) I had been going on since 2005. I got sick of "This content is not appropriate for minors" and clicking the button repeatedly that says I am over fourteen/eighteen. Plus, I wanted to see everything there is on here.
theists: how sure are you that god does exist?
everyone else: pictures of animals wearing santa hats?
If you don't have a laptop, would you if you had one?
I'm leaving for my grandpa's house soon and I don't want my family to know I've been crying all morning. How can I get rid of the redness and puffiness quickly? Once I do my makeup the redness should be mostly invisible, but the puffiness will remain. My eyes usually stay red and puffy for HOURS after I've been crying this much.
EDIT: She's been dead since 2003, this isn't something new.
Do you still make out with your spouse?
argh. why did i wait until CHRISTMAS EVE to plan this out?!
What are your plans for NYE?
What games should I get?
At what age, if any, did your parents stop giving you gifts?
Will you post a picture, any picture?
what if you're just a little tipsy?
what if you "know what you're doing" because you "do it all the time?"
2. If you go into someone else's bathroom and their toilet lid is up or down, does it affect which way you leave it? For example, if you normally leave it up at home but you go in and it's closed, do you make sure to close it when you're done.
2. Anyone have any experience with the Dailies contacts? My doctor is super gung-ho about getting me to buy them over my two week Acuvues (probably because they cost more), but my eyes dry out really fast as soon as I put them in and it makes them pretty much unwearable. Any similar experiences?
3. Am I a creep show for thinking that Shang, the general guy from Mulan, is a total hottie? I mean, he's 2D...
why do you guys celebrate thanksgiving
on a weird day?
but celebrate christmas on the right day?
What do australians think of when they hear "I'm dreaming of a white christmas"
The other day, I was in the shower at 6:30 in the morning and suddenly I had a thought about the movie "The Day After Tomorrow." And my thought was, at 6:30 am, that the movie would have been so much better if they had shown a scene with the highways all jammed with people fleeing to go south and all of a sudden a group of Canadians blows past everyone on snowmobiles... Maybe towing some kids on an sled behind 'em. It was a weird thing to be thinking about that early in the morning.
What are you eating for dinner today and tomorrow?
Do you know what you're having for New Year's?
Ham that just finished baking in the oven. Chicken wings that my grandma ordered from Wal-Mart. I don't eat anything else since I'm so picky. Tomorrow will probably be leftovers since we're not planning on going anywhere. New Year's will be pork in the crockpot, with mashed potatoes. That's what we have every year on New Year's Day.
I have other tattoos but I managed to get them all in summer/early fall. Go figure.
Edit: To clarify, what I'm asking is Do you think it will adversely affect healing to get a leg tattoo in the winter?
How do you wrap presents?
To and From?
Also, why am I still here in this chair?
Are you still here?
1. Is this a phrase you have used or heard?
2. Do you know any Jewish people? When did you meet your first Jew?
3. Have you ever asked a Jewish person how he or she keeps his (or her) horns from showing?
I sure think so.
Do you still hang socks over the fireplace? Leave cookies out for Santa? Something else?
We go to my mum's and still hang our socks over her fireplace, since ours are used as decorations at my house. We don't leave cookies anymore, but we still set the table, light the candle and leave the front door unlocked - we do this at my house, too.
*insert your holiday here. if you don't celebrate anything, then you can't play, sorry!
Are your friends mostly younger than you, the same age, or older?
Do you have a job? If so, what is it?
( Collapse )
2)what do you think about sports night?
3)how many christmas cookies did you eat today?
Those without: What do you want for the holidays?
What are some of your New Year's resolutions?
2 I was talking to a coworker last weekend, and somehow it came up that he's a very strict vegan. I asked if he minded cooking meat for people, and he said "No. It's a personal choice everyone has to make. I don't pretend I know better than anyone, it's just a choice I've made, like someone makes a choice to recycle or to dress in a certain style. I can't look at them and tell them their choices are wrong." A super tolerant vegan! What has blown your mind lately?
3 TQCers who have traveled for Christmas - when did you leave and when are you heading back? How far did you travel?
4 Are you having a modest Christmas relative to past years ~because of the economy~?
Go now, 3p my time
Wait til ~11p and go
I want to avoid as much xmas crazy as I can.
Do you have a dysfunctional relationship with food in any way? How?
Which do you prefer?
Think you can do that?
1. when's the last time you got rickrolled by the music, vid or lyrics?
Everyone listening to the radio this morning got rickrolled by the DJ. Epic.
2. did you ever suspect a teacher of yours, or in your school,of being gay? (only if they hadn't come out)
There was one teacher in the Economics department that set off just about everyone's gaydar. Dude wore pink and usually played a song at the end of each topic he had lectured to encourage us in our studies. He generally sang along and encouraged us to sing along as well.
For all the non-xtians, how do you plan on spending tomorrow?
Wait wait, no, it smells like ammonia or whatever developer is found in boxed hair dying kits...
Example: hipster_killer, are you a hipster who kills people, or are you someone who only kills hipsters?
Do you have any time off school or work? What have you been doing? I'm bored as shit.
I made a fuckton of cookies and I don't want to eat them all -- I was thinking about offering them to this one homeless guy who stands outside of the metro station with a sign. He never approaches people to ask for money -- just stands there quietly.
2)what's an iconic toy from your childhood?
see my icon.
3)what do you think about mustaches?
4)do you like rewritten fairy tales?
I'm willing to admit that I try to see Hanson every time they come to town. I've seen them 5 times since 2000. And I have almost every album and still listen to them. :D
The iPhone or Blackberry??
(My family already uses AT&T as our service provider, so I'm wondering if I should use my Xmas money to get an iPhone instead of just an iPod Touch).
What's your favourite vegetable? (mine's obvi asparagus).
What about Christmas Day?
Who has to work (as in, in TQC) on Christmas day?
Anyone else sick on Christmas? :(
... I'm so sick, I initially posted this to my journal. D:
Macy's. $2500 worth of party dresses. Caught with a totally insane undercover maneuver. A holding cell, a huge whopping fee, scary police officers. They let me go because the store was closing early for Christmas Eve and the police officer that came to pick up the other offenders being held actually FORGOT TO TAKE ME. So they just released me.
Edit: I would just like to clarify that I was CLEARLY being stupid, was caught, processed and fined, and was LET GO, all according to the correct procedure...I didn't evade or escape it, I'm not bragging about dodging a bullet, I'm not saying I shouldn't have been caught. I'm just really thankful that they decided not to prosecute, that's all. And no, I don't really think that stealing from an enormous corporation is the same as destroying an individual's vital property, and no, I'm not saying that what I got caught for was awesome or anything either.
what style of underwear is your favorite to wear?
(This is a gratuitous question so that I can show you all the lol-worthy tree my parents picked out below the cut, yes. I JUST GOT HERE TO VISIT AND HADN'T SEEN IT UNTIL JUST NOW. I had to share the lols somehow.)
OMG my brother just walked in and told me they rescued it from a REJECT TRASH PILE OF TREES.

I used to have this website in my favorites that was REALLY cheap and had adorable jewlery but I don't know what happened to it or what it was called :(
What should I make: Salmon w/ garlic-herb butter and quinoa, chicken w/ cuban mojito sauce and brown rice, or turkey meatloaf?
apparently it comes in bottles in England and i'm sitting here going XOOOOO
Mine: "3 Libras" by a Perfect Circle is the first to come to mind.
do you like onions? I don't know nearly enough people that do.
2. What is the most ridiculous argument you've had with your best friend or SO?
I had a fight with my bestie the other night about NOT fighting in front of our other friends.
3. What was the worst movie of 2008?
Superman's Dead came on Yahoo!'s 90s Alternative Rock station. He said he'd never heard it before.

Were you allowed to open your stockings before your parents woke up on Christmas morning?
how do they do that and have two tracks?
Who wouldn't go?
* = equivalent winter holidays apply
I'm pretty sure the thing that my friend is describing can't be real. If you remember this, can you tell me the name of this show?

What's the last impulsive thing you did?
Do you know any websites that show super cute ways to wear/style bangs?
2. Tomorrow I'm spending my first Christmas all by myself. I've got a friend coming over around five or six and we're going out to eat, but what should I do all day before that?
A giant fucking puddle appeared in my Sims' house and it won't go away and they'll mop parts up and it just comes back and nothing is broken. WHAT IS GOING ON :(? I have been looking all over for an answer!
i feel like most people are enjoying their day off and crap.
i had to work, i feel sick, and i'm still torn about the new cat.
What are you doing this eve?
have you had any festivus miracles?

i also bought a new (..in 1996) car yesterday and a new (actually brand spanking new) phone two days ago. and i got my family each at least two christmas presents. i love having a job.
have you realized anything strange lately?
i have owned three cars now, and all three were paid for entirely by money i got for being hit by a car. that seems wrong a little bit, especially since all three cars have been big suv bone crushing monsters.
2. Non-religious persons- when was the last time you attended a religious ceremony? Do you think it's douchey to flat-out refuse to attend a church service for 1 hour and upset your grandmother? Or is it more important to "be true to yourself"?
also what are the best smelling colognes? i heard very sexy 2 and gucci envy were nice.
I had one recently where I was in Manhattan, but it looked more like suburbia. I was bar hopping, but was hitting up places that looked more like Applebee's than the chic lounges you might find in NYC.
2. What was the last thing you had too much of?
3. What is the strangest thing you have on your desk? PIctures are lovely.
