Did you enjoy it?
I got the Long Island Iced Tea Flavour tonight cos I saw it in a gas station. So far it is very much worth the $2.25
Does your mom know about your myspace/facebook/other potentially embarrassing social networking site?
What was her reaction when she found out?
What would her reaction be if she could see it?
The issues are:
- I have no credit
- I have no job (trying to get one, but I do have a large amount of money to hold me over in my bank account)
- the two roommates I plan to move with... one has bad credit, and the other has no credit history (college grads, but I trust them with making rent)
Since it would be difficult for us kids to get a decent place, my mom gave me the idea for her to co-sign or something with me, since she has good credit and more money in her bank, etc. The only thing is she lives in a different state.
I want to start calling apartments because we plan to get in by April 1, but just... I don't have any idea how I approach the landlords I want to contact. What do I say to them? How much do I say?
I even asked if I should give the numbers for my mom to call, but she insists I do it myself. I just don't want the landlord or w/e to feel suspicious of me because of it. How do I approach this situation?
Any advice would be appreciated!
Ok, I'm going to try to ask good questions here on TQC and not ones that actually have to do with my personal life, but i'm going to ask this question.............. OK, so I sent my Xbox to the repair center to get fixed, because my Xbox has been ruining certain games. It could be coincidence that i've had 7 Maddens and 1 GTA 4 that are defective, but one frustrated night i called and decided to charge $105 to my credit card to get it fixed. They told me to include with my Xbox a paper that has a list of the problems so they know what to fix. I'd heard that people who get the red ring of death usually just get refurbished Xboxs back and it's not even theirs.
So my list.....
1. My xbox ruins my newer games but plays my old ones fine
2. It starts up really slow
3. i get a "blah blah blah" error
4. I had a really bad experience with your customer service people and I was told to include on the list that I am to recieve a refurbished Xbox with an HDMI port for my hard time.
Now i know what you're thinking... No this didn't really happen... Actually i had a horrible time getting it figured out. I had to track down a guy who's name was on my Xbox and i didn't have his info.. It was truly a horrible experience. But since i'm getting an HD tv soon ( i hope) i decided to lie and hope it works out... I'm sorry that I look really dishonest, i say lie to companies not people.... But my question is... What do you think will happen? Will i get my old one back or will they do what my list says? If i was being honest i would have no way of proving it.. It's worth a try.. They wasted my time, i might as well waste their money.
However, when I look for little girl's clothing, I find the most adorable clothing. Outfits that make little girls look like little girls.
Why isn't there clothing that make little boys look like adorable little boys? Am I looking at the wrong spots? Do you know of any places where I can find cute little boy clothing?
I don't want my nephew to look like his first words will be "beer bong".
Srs-Non/Srs answer apply.
1B. Have you ever left a note on somebody's car because of something something dumb they did/bad parking etc. what did they do?
2. What is the oddest or funniest encounter you've had with a customer at your place of work?
What does tl;dr mean? lol, i'm just joking.. i'm learning guys sorry.
Ok, When you repair an xbox you need to put a list of what's wrong with it. In my list i said that the person on the phone told me to include on my list that I am to recieve a refurbished Xbox with HDMI compatabilities instead of getting my old Xbox back. This isn't true. I am lying to the company, but if i was telling the truth i'd have no way of proving it. So do you think that I will just get my old Xbox back with a "nice try" note back on it, or do you think the repair people will just do what it says? Is it likely I get lucky here?
if you were a girl and you were about to get raped...would punching them in the jaw be better than thrusting your palm into their nose?
I am in an argument abou thtis. I say palm in nose.
2. Would you wear a scarf that someone knitted for you? Or is that lame?
3. What's the best book made into a movie? It could be the movie was crap but the book was awesome, or vice versa.
I set an alarm on my phone...so annoying.
Do you bring pictures with you when you go for a haircut?
If you bring celebrity pictures, who was the last one you brought?
I'm bringing a picture of Zooey Dechannel tomorrow. I don't even like her but I like her hairrr
Why do some people feel that its necessary to dumb-down a first time poster who asked a "stupid question"?
Honestly, its the QUESTION club, and some people probably think that its just a place to ask about anything, in whatever way, and get help with it... (and its not)
Basically, why be so rude?
What's it like giving head to a girl?
What should I get from my 3 a.m. deli run? I'm hungry and there's only kimchi in this house.
How long is your SO's erect penis?
If you are not dating anyone, use the last guy you dated. If you have more than 1 man, use the one you have better sex with. If you are a dude, you can just put your own length in there.
The last penis poll. It had a pretty nice bell curve to it.
Why do you enjoy living there?
Is it difficult to find housing?
Is it practical to own a car?
Is the cost of living substantially higher than living in the more southern parts of the continent?
If you no longer live there, why did you move elsewhere?
I'm particularly curious as to what day-to-day life is like in Whitehorse, YK.
okay i am drinking! new question: what should i eat? i have mini pizzas, pizza rolls, grilled cheese, and ramen.
lol YOU GUISE, I NEED YOU TO PLAN MY LIFE FOR ME YOU GUISE.
I can't stand it.
Additionally, can I be expecting lunch on my American Airlines flight from Miami to Panama, which leaves at noon-ish and gets in at 3-ish? Because I'm not going to lie, airline food makes my day.
Mine was Blub8. My nickname was Blub, because I liked fish, and I was 8.
When should I go to sleep? (It's 3:14am right now, and I woke up at 3pm today.)
I'm thinking...earlier than 6am.

TQC, DOES BEER COME IN 8-PACKS ANYWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES? MY EX IS ARGUING WITH ME AND SAYING THA TAYBE T OES AND ID ON'T AGREE WITH HIM.
Ok, I wish had a picture, but sometimes, probably once a month or less, I get a bright red spot on the outline of my lip, like where one would would put lipliner on. Is it a cold sore? I googled 'cold sore' and it looks NOTHING like any of this:
So here's how it usually starts forming:
The rim of my lips will start to itch. I start scratching it and just KNOW that it's gonna be the usual BRIGHT, red spot, no bigger than 2mm. That's when I check myself out in the mirror and see it! Again, it looks nothing like the pics of 'cold sores' on google images. It's just red, no white spot inside, no puss, no popping, NADA. So this red lip spot of mine will go away in like 15-20 minutes, more or less.
I've googled the sheeit out of this, and I STILL don't know wtf it is! Could it be a dry, irritated, lip patch from chaffing? Oral herpes (I still have my v-card!)? WTF MAN! If anyone could help me out, it would mean an effing lot. Thanks a lot in advance!
2. I'm going food shopping tomorrow for when I go back to school on Friday. I live in a townhouse with five other girls and we have a full kitchen. I'm trying to get foods that I can cook in the house as opposed to ordering out everytime I don't feel like heading to the dining hall. What [relatively cheap] foods should I get that I can make a not-too-unhealthy dinner out of? I'm already planning on getting portabello mushrooms if I can so I can make portabello burgers.
3. What are you doing tomorrow?
4. What is your favorite breakfast food?
5. Also speaking of food, I'm probably gonna have a whole day in the townhouse to myself meaning I'll have no company for lunch or dinner, and I don't think the dining hall or campus c-store will be open anyway. There is a small convenience store that I could probably get something food-like at around the block, a Dunkin Donuts a short walk away where I can get the bagel I've been craving, and there's a Subway about twice as far as the DD where I can get an actual sandwich. What should I do?
... *goes to bed*
Can you suggest one?
What's the scariest movie you've ever seen?
Do you agree with her or are there cute red headed guys out there? If so, would you post a pic of them?
2. What's your favorite old fashion word? Do you ever look for a way to slip into a conversation now and again?
3. In this scenario, Lucifer exists. You get to ask him one question. What is it?
4. You can steal anyone object in the world at your desire. The catch is, once you have it, you cannot use for what it was originally intended to be used as. (For example, if you steal all the money in a bank, you can't use the money to buy stuff. You have to use it for something else. You steal shoes, you can't use them to walk around in. Etc. )
So, what would you steal and what would you use it for?
What about the first time you had sex?
How do I solve this predicament?
It is not on the floor or under the cat.
EDIT: It was under my bra, which was under the pillow next to me, and half-wedged into the couch cushion. GO FIGURE.
New question! Which is a worse name to give to your child: (first name) Joney (last name) Jones, or (first name) Jacobazarian (middle name) DenimDior?

I'm sending flowers, anonymously, to two people I know need pick me ups for Valentine's Day.
How are you this morning, TQC?
Nevermind, I guess it did make it into here. Uh...when's the last time you threw up?
Also if you had a gift that you bought for your SO and before it arrived he/she broke up with you, would you still give it to him/her? What if it's not something you would ever want yourself and they know you ordered it for them?
i hate my nose so much :/

If the answer is yes, what is your favorite combination (strawberry yogurt on Total cereal, banana yogurt on Cheerios, ect)?
Are you supposed to put milk AND yogurt on, or just one or the other?
Did you get the data off it?
How did that work out for ya stupid?
Did you learn to back up your data on different drives?
Its not for me...its for a friend. Yeah.
Do any of you just drink straight out of the jug? Any reason?
Who else is colder than a witch's tit right now?
2. If so, how long does your battery last? I'm not used to a cell phone telling me the percentage of battery it has, and so far it's been on for about 2 hours without being plugged in, and the battery is 85%. Is that normal?/Is it going to die on me within a day?
If you don't have a Blackberry or know the answer or care:
1. Are you looking forward to anything this week?
2. Is it very cold where you live right now?
what is something you find/found really cute/adorable about your SO/ex/bff?

Will you post a picture of you wearing a hat?
Post a pic in comments so others can tell you how old you look!
This morning I had a dentist appointment where I learned that I need $2k in dental work (replace two crowns and one filling).
I can't afford to do both. I mean, I could put them both on my credit card, but I don't want to do that. I am still taking general classes (although these particular ones would be helpful for my current job). I was really looking forward to starting school and considered just postponing the dental work. But the problem with that is that it could get worse if I wait and I'd end up paying even more.
What would you do if you were in my situation?
While watching NCIS repeats on USA, I keep seeing previews for Psych. It looks interesting and funny. Should I watch Psych?
My boyfriend just told me about a woman he works with who was complaining that she tried to copy from one email and past in another and all it would do is put a big space in there. She was pasting white text onto a white background apparently.
Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Which classic theme show song do you like the most?
Why don't t.v. shows have real theme songs anymore? What's the last t.v. show you can remember watching that actually had a theme song you could sing along to?
I think CSI's Who songs are the most recent shows I can think of.
What's the silliest thing you've seen recently where you work?
OK. So. Do you clever people have any ideas about what I could do to store the poor pieces instead? The house does not have cat-proof shelves.
* There will be no crap in this thread about it. It's OLD, cope.
My aunt makes it a weekly habit of asking my parents for money yet I felt guilty yesterday to ask for $20 for gas. arghhh
(Thought of another question)
Does your hair cutter offer a lower price for a "trim"? When I was younger I remember it was way less to trim my hair than to get a brand new style. Does anyone do that anymore?
Do you resent them or feel closer to them for this?
My SO is angry/annoyed/pissed off/fed up about something 50% of the time. It makes me feel rubbish because I can't make him happy, but also annoyed that he's wasting our time together being unpleasant.
2)What is your favorite John Goodman movie besides The Big Lebowski?
Have you ever been forced to take a stupid class because of schedule constraints or lack of space? HOW HORRIBLE WAS IT
Do you have to take your pants all the way off or just be a skillful squatter? I would probably pee all over my shoes.
That happened to me this morning. I woke up and it just felt like spring. Or a new phase of my life. Or something. I don't know why, either, because it's cold and there's ice on the ground.
Would you change your mind if the switch included a 75 cent raise?
Would you change your mind if 3rd shift actually started only 2 hours earlier than 1st shift?
I'm supposed to decide whether or not I want the husband to switch from his 5:00 am to 3:30 pm shift (which is 1st shift) to the 3:00 am to 1:30 pm shift (which is technically 3rd shift). He doesn't have the option of second shift, which was 1:30 pm to 11:00 pm or something like that...and he wants me to give him my opinion on it before he gets home this afternoon.
2)should pools be filled with water in winter?
3)do you ever have upper back pain? how do you fix it?
Are you supposed to wait a day or so before washing hair that's been bleached?
Rolaids or tums?
i'm at home sick with some sort of stomach flu. i've been puking all morning. but i am SO THIRSTY. what can i drink that will be safe? i had a sip of water and threw it up right away.

If yes what kind? (lesbian, fetish, gay, milf, etc.)
And...are you straight gay lesbian asexual? Whatever?
Would you "change"?
What can you see from your house?
EDIT: Old memes are the BEST meme's. You can LULZ some of the people most of the time.....
Sometimes you really dig a girl the moment you kiss her, and then you get distracted by her older sister. When in walks her father and takes you a line, and says, "You better go home, son, and make up your mind".
1. Did you ever have to make up your mind -- pick up on one and leave the other behind? It's not often easy and not often kind. Did you ever have to make up your mind?
2. Did you ever have to finally decide -- say yes to one and let the other one ride? There's so many changes and tears you must hide. Did you ever have to finally decide?
While I am at it, what are your thoughts on that movie? I have given up about twenty minutes in, because I can't understand what is going on, and it is not capturing my attention at all.
I was thinking we should go there for a few days over my Spring Break.
Have you been to Chicago?
What's fun to do there?
What was the last trip you went on?
What was the best part of it all?
If we decide to go, should we get a small cheap hotel to spend money on other stuff or should we get a room at a cute B&B?

Have you ever experienced vertigo? What was wrong? How long until it went away?
So I decided to go ahead and get the Rhapsody for VCAST, and just pay an extra $14.99 a month for it.
Now I have a nearly unlimited selection of music at my fingertips!!
The question is: Does anyone have any good music selections they'd care to share? I'll take anything, I'm just dying to hear something decent!
Super duper thanks.
If you do, have you ever missed while hovering? How many times? Were mind-altering substances involved, or were you sober?
If you have, did you at least try to clean it up? Did it stop you from hovering in the future?
So my question is this: do you stalk this LJ community? I was surprised that within TWO minutes I got 15 replies to my post. Oh. My. God. I wish I had the time and the gonads to be that rude to something that was clearly a mistake.
So, do you stalk this thing? Why? Do you ever leave comments that are a little less than nice? Why?
Today is my running day and I would like to get out before 4:00 so I'll be home before it gets dark. It takes approximately an hour and a half for me to go 4 miles (the minimum I like to do). If I don't hear from her by 3:00, would it be rude of me to go ahead without her?
Do needles/syringes freak you out?
This February I am going away to college for the first time ever (PUMPUMPUM!). I feel I am prepared for most things, except for security. The rooms are all single occupancy but I still don't feel sure about leaving all my things - especially my laptop - in my room protected by one locked door.
How do you college kids keep your things safe? Any advice for me?
Also, do you think I'm mental when I say that I am 'prepared for most things'? What do people usually forget to do / account for? Because I'm pretty sure I'll get there and realise I've forgotten to bring pants or something.
Yes. I'm seriously going to go see Jon Lajoie. Don't you judge my 2 year youtube love affair.
Is there an inter-dimensional gateway next to my couch?
If yes, to where does it lead?
If no, what important cat business am I interrupting?

my picture message tone is daylight by matt and kim

mom, dad, brother/sister, bff, SO, ex?

Would you rather go on the date one-on-one or go out with a group of friends?
Was there anyone whose name you wish you had?
I was jealous of my friend Lily's name, my friend Cheryl's piano talent, and how tiny my friend Rachel was so she would look so cute in any outfit.
I'm looking for a different way to serve potatoes tonight(not mashed, not baked). Any suggestions?
i'm convinced they do. Dachshunds, for example, have a very specific smell. My mom's and my brother's weiner dogs smell the same but different from our different breed(ed) dogs.
2. What do you do online when you're bored and LJ fails you? LIke funny blogs, websites, etc.
3. Do you like Oprah? Why or why not?
Are there any restaurants you go to where you always order the same thing?
2. 5 years ago?
3. (a)Are there naked pictures of you out in the universe? (b)Who took them?
What is the best gift you have given your SO? (Cheap or expensive, romantic or practical, easy or difficult, etc.)
What is the worst gift you have given your SO?
SO can be past or present!
We've narrowed it down to:
The Day the Earth Stood Still
Which one would you recommend?
Who was the last person you ran into while being out and about?
If you had a messy room growing up, do you still have a messy room now? Or have you grown out of that?
gents, do you only have a small amount of stuff?
i am tidying my bedroom today as its a hell hole. i have filled 7 bags worth of stuff to be binned including 2 pairs of slippers (but i kept 4 other pairs), a dressing gown (but i kept 2), 4 jackets (but i kept 5), 3 handbags (but i kept 2). its madness. theres no way i have enough storage for all the stuff im keeping.....but i NEED it.
my friend thinks i am wierd as he thinks you only need a pair of boots, pair of trainers, a few hoodies and a jacket.
My 16 year old brother. He basically dropped out of high school and can't keep a job longer than 2 weeks, my parents support him for everything (although it's not happening for much longer), pay for his cellphone bill, give him money to take his girlfriend out and buy her Christmas presents. Today he wanted money for his cellphone and they couldn't give it to him. He FLIPPED out claiming this is why he's moving out, he doesn't get anything he wants, my parents never keep their word blah blah. He gets everything he wants, doesn't have a job, doesn't go to school and basically does whatever he wants...and on the off chance my parents don't give him money, his life is the worst life possible.
Then he starts getting on me for not lending him money when I have so much saved. I lend him money constantly and never get paid back so I stopped. He thinks because I have money put away it's all fine if I decide to take some out to give to him? Even though I don't even take money out of that account for myself?
This is probably tl;dr. I am just angry. WHY ARE YOU ANGRY OR ANNOYED?
She e-mails him a picture of a diamond ring and says: I like this.
But it doesn't mean I want to get married.
What is she telling him?
EDIT: In her culture she should have been married already.
Why does your life suck today?
Have you ever typed www.thequestionclub.com thinking that it would bring you to the LJ community? I just did that.
If you have played Rock Band before, have you tried singing while also doing an instrument?
2. how much do you have in a savings account? (that you do not touch unless its an emergency situation)
3. how much debt are you in?
watching oprah right now is making me depressed about my finances :-/ (or lack thereof)
If you've had a baby did you or your partner breastfeed? In public as well as private?
What are you thoughts on (public) breastfeeding?
I personally think people who make a big deal out of it (public feedings) need more things to occupy their time and are petty.
what kind of phone do you have? pictures?
My best friend's first sexual bf had a large penis (~9 in.) and now she has a skewed view of how big penises should be, thinking anythig under 7 inches is tiny.
I want to go see Bride Wars because I'm a sucker and I want to see it and I'll be alone all day tomorrow, but I feel like people will stare at me like "LOSER, don't you have any FRIENDS to go to the movies with?" =\ lol
Alternately, does anyone in the Jacksonville area want to see a movie with me tomorrow? lol
I like it in black tea.
Never had it in green tea.
My company seems to have eliminated giving out gift cards. Since I won a monthly drawing, I'm entitled to get a reward. So, what's something I can ask for that's $20 or less and work-appropriate (no hookers and blow, guys)? I'm seriously stumped here.
I'm looking for a new wallpaper for my computer. I tried googling images and clicking "save as desktop background" (I have a PC), but they came out really pixelated - even when I specifically searched for larger sizes.
I'm not too picky - anything pretty or Escher-y is generally preferable.
My screen resolution is 1280x800 pixels.
Do you know where I can find good-quality images for free that won't turn out like crap? Thanks!
My complex management staff forgot that little detail when they programmed my number in and now they're closed.
If you don't know that, do you like fishsticks?
EDIT! I just realized it's 18+ so at most I'll only be 3 years older than everyone else, and that wouldn't be terrible or anything.
Do you have any old junk watches or clocks that are broken and you want to give them to me so I can use the parts without having to buy parts on eBay?
Where should they go, and what should they see/do?
(My daughter will be almost nine and Nanna will be almost fifty when they go... And yes, the kid's big into princesses.)
How old are you?
I'm trying to find out why my husband wouldn't know what shrinky dinks are, He says it must be a generational thing.
Typically I am into rock-ish music, and a bit of modern folk. However I absolutely adore Loreena McKennitt.
Do you have one?
Do you want one?
Say you're in your own house, and you're naked - I donno what you're doing, it doesn't really matter. Let's say you're doing the Thriller dance.
So, naked Thriller dance in your living room, and the blinds are open. Someone walks past and sees you. Can you get in trouble?
Edit: I should probably explain - I saw on TV that some guy was arrested for being naked in his house where this teenage girl could see him. It was obvious he was doing it on purpose, but it got me wondering.
If you don't care:
Red or green?
Does frying it make it taste any different?
About 4 months ago, I thought that I was going to want to watch Mad Men on my computer, so I tried downloading it from iTunes. Turns out, it was taking way too long to download and I had no patience so I canceled all of the downloads. I thought that was the end of it!
Today, I was downloading an album that only had five songs on it when I saw that there were 12 downloads waiting. Mad Men has come back to haunt me! And no matter how many times I try to delete, they all keep coming back to haunt me.
I don't want this - TQC how in the hell do I get rid of it?
And if you can't help me - Gatorade or Powerade?
Would it be weird if I went over there tomorrow afternoon and offered to get her anything she might need?
I feel bad for her, but I'm pretty shy, too.
Texting someone you like only to find out you've been talking to a rooster the whole time.
What do you think about the atheist ads currently being displayed on buses, subways, etc?
New York Times article: www.nytimes.com/2009/01/07/world/europe/0
Coordinator Ariane Sherine's blog post: www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2008/oc
Edit: I suppose I should answer, since it is my question.
I think it's hilarious. I'd love for some of those ads to come out in Texas. The lulz would be EPIC.
Is telling a guy a horrible idea?
Have you ever told the person you liked how you felt about them (assuming you weren't in a relationship with them)? If so, how did that turn out?
Will you tell me a funny story?
NOTE: We are not close, and she does not exhibit normal human emotional responses. So a crying screaming fit will probably occur followed by some form of self-destructive behavior.
Like most really messed-up people she is of course vehemently against therapy/psychiatric drugs and believes that all forms of mental illness can be cured with the right combination of diet and LSD or pot.
whats your weirdst sex story?
