If so, which ones?

If so, which ones?
If you were like this, would you hold off on school? Or am I just doomed to be like this forever?
When was the last time something/someone pissed you off? What happened?
When was the last time you felt awkward? Why?
mine: a slice of pizza hut pizza which was verry cheesy & good
(Meet with a group of people who speak Italian/other foreign language, just for conversation?)
If you have, where did you find the group?
Would it be dumb for me to do a non-credit course in Italian, even though I'm taking six classes right now?
What language did you take in school? Did your college have language requirements?
How inappropriate would you rate that response on a scale of one to ten (with one being not at all inappropriate and ten being extremely inappropriate)?
And in a totally different vein, which do you prefer: yellow gold, white gold, silver, or platinum?
To start it off, here is a then-and-now for the cast of The Princess Bride.
Also, since I suspect this debate lies in my future ...
Which movie is better?
"does calling girls you know cunt constitute teh violence against women?" [sic]
What do YOU think?
This room ^ bites. I hate how the bathroom's right there. And this is pretty much the entirety of the apartment: bedroom, this room, kitchen, bathroom.
If I put a couch along the back wall (top), then the TV and stereo and assorted stuff will be right by the bathroom. And, I don't want to witness any company I have over coming out of the bathroom, or any accompanying smells. Not to mention it partially blocks traffic to the kitchen.
The wall along the kitchen won't quite fit a couch plus if I put a stereo and shit across from there, then it'll be in my way walking in and getting to my bedroom. And again the bathroom'll be a problem.
So, I was thinking of just tossing everything in my bedroom. It's large enough, so.. fuck it, why not? I have a loft bed, so I can put a futon right under it, then comfortably fit TV, stereo, and whatever else along the opposing wall.
Pros: Plenty of space, won't disrupt any traffic flow. With people being in the bedroom, people using the bathroom are afforded privacy. I'll only have a window A/C in my bedroom, so it'll be the coolest room in the summer. I'd rather have my stereo in my bedroom anyway.
Only con I can think of is that people'll be in my bedroom, but whoopie do? If anything that gives me incentive to keep my room tidy.
And then if I do this, I have no idea what exactly I'd use this little room for.
Thoughts on the matter?
I know that f(x) = 100 - nx. I know that f(232) = 89.5. How do I solve for n?
How often a week, and for how long each session, should one work out in order to see pounds shed?
Here are a couple;
1. An insomniac. His imaginary friend. Soap.
2. Magicians. Nikola Telsa. Ow, my finger!
3. Space Truckers. Scary acid spitting stowaway.
2. Can you describe a movie using only the ending and see if others can guess it? (Serious spoilers ahoy.)
Here are a couple;
1. The composer dies and is buried in a pauper's grave. The surviving composer curses God and spends his remaining years in a mental institution.
2. After making plans for the day, he wanders out to the tool shed to play video games with his long dead friend.
3. After saving the galaxy, the heroes return home by crashing into a convention. They then do an updated version of their old sci-fi show.
#1 - fixed
Look at the video around 1:28
( Collapse )
Does that map match the actual real map? Does the Rockefeller-Hewitt Building even exist?
As far as I can tell, the answer to both is a no. That's pretty lame and un-ballsy of the people making that video. It makes it much less funny.
( Collapse )
DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY HINTS BEFORE I STAB SOMETHING?
Do your parents bug you to start making grandbabies?
If so, when did this begin?
How old were your parents when they had their first kid?
How old were your grandparents when they had their first kid?
what are you doing today?
whats on the walls in your living room?
You're at the national stock car champs, which are being held in the rural outskirts of a very bogan city, where such intellectual phrases as, 'White City' are spray-painted on alley walls and the Sinn Fein, Triads and Mongrel Mob have pads. You're surrounded by more rat-tails and mullets than you normally see in a year as people stand up while the national anthem is sung badly by the commentator, and packs of small children - with even more rat-tails and mullets than their parents - roam the grounds.
Between heats, some or all of the team pit-crews are gathered together for some sort of talk, and the commenter says over the loud-speaker, "We might wind up with an Indian Tea Party down there."
What the hell is an Indian Tea Party?!
As for me, well, I dunno (and that's why I'm asking you). But I hope she does. I can't imagine watching one whole season without the Sue Bird/Lauren Jackson tandem.
Is there one you're trying to make right now?
Can you help me out, TQC? What should I wear?
( Collapse )
I must have missed something, but can someone explain this trend?
got it. I missed a lot of the inauguration :(
Earlier this morning, I was woken up to my step dads frantic yelling of "Call 911 Mom!". The first thing that went through my mind is "What the hell is wrong with Grampa?" Then I remembered that he died in 2004. (I wake up very slowly) My mom comes crashing into my room to announce that "Gram is very sick, so we're going over there. She's going to the hospital." Imagine my suprise!
So later, my parents call to tell me that they're taking her to the hospital and that she didn't have a stroke (I'm not sure why they thought I thought that...) just that her blood pressure was very high.
So I am now in a perpetual 'WTF-mindset' because I have NO IDEA what's going on.
My mom just called to ask me if I could take care of the laundry.
No word on my gram though.
What's the last thing that made you really mad?
If so, how do you fix your grits to make them less bland and more omnomnom?
What do you think that people would think about you?
How much you have changed,
That you are exactly the same....
Can you post your favourite macro to cheer me up?
I was in the hall for nearly two hours before the Super walked by and asked if I was locked out.
What was the last thing that made you want to xD and D: at the same time?
Also, what's for lunch?
Should I just withdraw my application from the last one so I can accept the place I want?
There's not really any urgency to reply, I just want to know my place is secure!
Or should I just wait to see if I get in, out of curiosity?
(I'm not sure how much sense this makes!)
EDIT: I'm not accepting a place there, but have to have replies from each uni before I can accept a place.
O. It explains here and here. But still. What are the odds of contamination if you just wore a minimal bunny suit alone? Are there statistics on this?
No racist comments against neanderthals plz.
2. What do you think of the Dog Whisperer? Is he really that bad? What's wrong with alpha rolls, flooding and constant leash correction? What ARE those?
3. Do you also read it as large hardon collider?
eta: okay i do not feel as bad about having 6 (soon to be 7) anymore
are you rooting for her?
do you love her or hate her?
Also, what is your favorite animal?
You have a sixteen-year-old daughter.
Fate intervenes and says that should you choose to carry this baby, he/she will be born stillborn at 7 months due to your age. Fate then gives you a choice: carry the baby and have a stillborn, or have your sixteen-year-old carry the baby for you.
Should you choose the latter, it will still be your baby, and you will be able to care for it as if it were yours. However, your daughter will have to walk around pregnant for nine months.
What would you do?
Abortion is not an option in this make-believe world.
Thanks in advance.
We can't decide which we want to see more:
This is going out to the big fantasy booklovers out there.
I read a book a good few years ago and fell madly in love with it. Thing is, I haven't been able to find it since.
The annoying thing is that I don't know the title nor the author. I can tell you exactly what the book looks like down to the size and dimensions of it but the important stuff? Not so much.
It was an Adult Fiction fantasy novel about a family of women (daughter, mother, grandmother) who held a connection to the fantasy world filled with mythical creatures like mermaids and selkies. From memory that men of the family were all selkies.
It‘s kind of half in the real world, half in a fantasy world. It was set on an island just off the coast of America (from what you can gather) and only the three women knew of the fantasy world that was all around them.
The fishermen would tell stories of mermaids and beautiful women that would come from the sea (selkies) and about how they would have to put things in their ears so that they did not hear their songs but no one would believe them.
I remember a mass part of the book was about the daughter having dreams of something burning or someone being on fire and it turns out that she had witnessed her father being killed; funnily enough burnt alive.
Most of what I remember is that the fantasy part of the world is dying and the family has to try and save it.
I go to the library every other week, spoken to people all around the globe and begged just about anyone who has ever mentioned reading a book if they know what I’m on about.
So if anyone can help I would be forever in your debt. Seriously.
x-posted like mad because I’m going out of my mind.
You get to spend a day with your six-year-old self.
What do you do?
What do you tell him/her? Would you tell him/her that you're them, from the future?
Also, I'm feeling really light-headed, what should I do?
It's 12.20, and I have to go to work at 5.30, and I have two exams I still have to study for tomorrow.
Would you give your life to save twenty people you have never met, will never meet, and will never know the effect that their deaths had?
Would you give your life to save twenty friends and relatives, people whose deaths would directly affect you?
Would you give your life to save one person you have never met, will never meet, and will never know what effect their death had?
Would you give your life to save one family member or friend?
And last/kind of least, what is the point of getting a huge TV? My sister wants the family to buy a big screen TV, she is OBSESSED with it, talks about it all the time, and gets mad whenever I ask what the point is. I'm honestly interested what the draw is because...I don't know, I like our current TV. It's normal size, it's got fine sound...I don't need to see every pore on Sean Penn's face.
Does anyone else think that Aretha is stealing my fish-hat-girl's thunder?
Do you share a shower with anyone?
I'm moving to the US with my fiance next year from Australia. How much would a job in Human Resources pay in California? I don't know where to look on the net, so thought I'd start here!!
(ie: I like Tiffany Amber Thiessen's name but I know next to nothing about her personally)
I have always wanted a rabbit, but we always had too many pets (mostly cats) growing up and there wouldn't have been enough safe room for him to hop around. I might get one within the next year or so if I can have a stable income, and I can convince my future roommate.
My question is this. Can anyone out there suggest some GOOD webcomics? I liked Flipside, and Xylia, and Gunnerkrig Court (Is that right?) so something along those lines would be cool.
Also, I have a five year old that I am attempting to get more into reading. She loves my com . . . Urr Graphic Novels, so are there any age appropriate webcomics out there for she and I to read together?
And, if you dont read comics or even give a crap, who do YOU think the sexiest classic Actor is?
I have had the hots for Gregory Peck ever since I saw To Kill A Mockingbird when I was 7
I tend to go for the really english sounding ones like Fred and Oliver and James. Jonathan is another good one. And Geoffrey and Jerome! I love those names!!! Jerome, James, and Oliver are my favorite names for a boy.
P.S. I apologize for the multiple posts! I just keep thinking of questions and I dont feel like editing my other entry.
If not, what percentage do you think you can reply with an appropriate LOLcat to an internet post or comment?
I'm partial to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dexter.
How do you tell when you're hungry? Is it the grumbly tummy feeling or does your brain say 'Hey you should eat some food." Or is a combination?
I've only had the grumbly feeling a few times in my life, even if I haven't eaten for a day or more. I usually eat when someone else eats. Otherwise I kinda guess when I should eat because I never know when my body needs food. Is my brain broken?
That's a terribly-phrased question. w/e.
I just had some Ore Ida EasyFries and they were actually really delicious.
(he drinks every four hours, he eats once a day at 4pm,touches things four times)
tell me something that you hate about one of your siblings (or any family member if you don't have any siblings)
I just noticed right now that he left some fairly serious...residual damage. It is only fair that HE be the one to clean the toilet, y/y?
It's usually my job, but considering the circumstances I think he just made it his for today.
also, does james van der beek's southern accent in varsity blues annoy you? it's annoying the crap out of me.
Even characters with a self-destructive urge would help :]]]
Preferably modern stuff, but i might use Othello as a comparison.
When was the last time your mother/father/parents left you at a total loss?
What is your proposed major?
Where would I go about finding the price of an older Casio HT-6000 Synthesizer (to sell)? The only one I've been able to find with a price is on ebay for $500 and I don't know if that's a lot. :(
If so, can you tell me about your experience? Including price, pain, etc.
Google is helping me find "providers" but no one will give a price range online. I'm also concerned because I went to a website that has a provider list, and I googled the only name listed for NYC and found an article in the NY Post about him having been charged with being unlicensed, being high on coke while working on a patient, having the patient die, and having stuffed her body in a suitcase and hidden it. Um... So I'm a little scared now about weeding out the quacks from the real doctors.
What color is your underwear today?
I just discovered that I LOVE the awful Processed cheese food product(or whatever it's called) in lunchables. MMMM NOM NOM NOM.
I am very confused. What is the purpose of this journal: se_tags ? Are they trying to sell drugs? Are they trying to sell naked grannies?
(Every so often I cruise http://www.fuzzysquid.com/LJ.php which shows me the 50 most recent non-private photos posted to LJ ... I clicked on the naked granny and it took me to the journal.)
If you saw a naked granny, would you click on the pic to see where it took you?
I just noticed that Firefox is displaying URLs of sites I've visited in red, instead of dark blue. When did this change happen?
Is it cheesy to make someone else a Build-a-Bear?
Chocolate covered strawberries, y/n?
You like to say em..
you like what they mean..
you like how they look.. whatever..
I like anomaly... it's fun to say and it means something strange
.. because it can describe most things ahah
What do you do?
BTW, this is not happening with me.
referring to aunt and uncle trying to move in with grandmother. in their forties. fat and lazy. will never move out if they move in, trust me.
Would you post a picture of yourself and let us try and guess what starsign you are?
If you can't be bothered posting a picture, would you tell us what you do for a living and a few of your favourite things to do outside work and see if we can guess your starsign based on that?
You can find the physical traits here if you want to have a look.
If you don't want to do any of that, will you tell me about your first time away from home and family (so, a night at grandma's and family holidays don't count)? How old were you, where did you go and what was it like?
I really did. Everyone loved it and I could not stand it....I feel like I am heartless!
What type of sitcome do you prefer?
Stuff like The Office, Scrubs, & 30 Rock....or stuff like How I Met Your Mother, Friends, Seinfeld?
(laught track sitcoms or no-laugh track sitcoms).
I'm supposed to go to my mom's place for dinner tonight. Normally, I would go over around 5 or 5:30. It's 4:30 now, and she's not answering her phones, and has not returned my calls. Where is she? What is she doing? Should I pretend to be all motherly-worried about her when she does call? "You could have been lying in a ditch somewhere and I wouldn't have known!"
2. Which musician/band's lyrics generally support your ideals?
3. What song represents you
I like pumpernickel and sasquatch.
What are you doing to calm down your excitement/dread?
I'm going at the end of September, and it's all i'm thinking about! I want to go now!
So... what the fuck should I watch? What are your favorite shows, what time are they on, and what channel are they on?
Example FTL - My brother recieved a W2 with a net gross of $346.10 -So this is NOT worth filing at all, is it?
How do I drain it? Should I go see a doctor?
My question, TQC is next time I hear screaming, should I talk to the people, again or should I go straight to the apartment manager for noise complaint? The screaming goes on a lot during the week and really upsets my dog.
Does your insurance cover yours?
2. Do you find that you have different results when you shave with one kind of razor vs. another? What kinds do you find better/worse? Even when I used a brand spankin' new head on my Venus razor today, I didn't get a very close shave AND I nicked myself a few times (which I NEVER do), but when I use my (men's)
3. Should I paint my nails deep red or dark purple (almost black)?
4. My dad has been really sick for the past few weeks (and has been in and out of the hospital for numerous tests), and my brother just told me that my mom was going to call me later with not-good news. :( Macro to cheer me up? Or cute animals? Or something?
2) Do you like classical music?
3) Do you have a favourite disney movie?
What do you recommend seeing in either country?
Things we like: hiking in places with great scenery, places you can rent a bike and sightsee that way, mountains/parks/water/outdoorsy stuff, art/science museums, castles, shopping for weird unique gift type things, crafty stuff, wildlife/zoos/aquariums, gardens, vegetarian-friendly restaurants, etc.
Do you know of helpful travel books for either country that you'd really recommend?
We'll probably start at the library to help narrow it down, but the stores have dozens of options and I can't buy them all.
Any other travel advice for those countries you'd like to share?
how's it working for you?
my doctor just prescribed lexapro for me on friday and i'm starting it tomorrow. i'm kind of nervous.
Now, you can show one event to one deceased person. It could be something personal (showing a parent or grandparent the birth of your baby or a graduation or something) or something more global (showing Martin Luther King Obama's inauguration, etc). If you want to pick something that hasn't happened yet you can, as long as it's something that definitely will at an identifiable time (for example, if you're currently pregnant with the aforementioned baby, okay, but if you're not and just know that you want to have kids at some point, no dice).
What event are you going to pick, and to whom will you show it?
I don't understand college acting degrees. it seems like a lot of work for something well...dubious.
2)any other thoughts?
there's a board game for everything.
eta: any important life rules you have?
NEVER throw books away, for god's sake.
Guys, do you prefer a woman with or without make up?
have you ever shoplifted?
what did you steal?
I'm having some trouble finding the option, and I don't want to eff anything up by mistake.
i want to make pasta for dinner and i'm bored of what i always cook (pasta/tuna/mayo/sweetcorn) right now.
editttt im gonna ask a second question in this post because i already posted once already today:
do you think girls look weird with blonde hair and dark brown/almost black eyebrows?
i dyed my hair back to dark brown because i felt i looked like a tranny with my dark eyebrows and light hair lol. but i miss it.
Right now, it's Ember Marie M*****i. I want to add a second middle name, and I want it to be an Italian name. So it would be Ember _____ Marie M*****i.
What do you suggest?
And if you think I'm out of my mind, what would you change your name to if you HAD to?
Is that, like, totally awesome or what?
How long do you go without talking to your friends before you go crazy?
what works your butt the best? the stairmaster, walking on incline, or the stair stepper?
I have to write a composition (in another language) for tomorrow. I have two options. Which should I pick?
1.Pretend you are an immigrant that has come to Canada. Why/where did you leave? What attracts/bothers you about the city you're in? What are your emotions?
2.Write about your personal relationships with your family/friends.
I would rather pick number two because I really couldn't imagine what hardships someone has to go through. But, my relationships kind of suck. I don't really have too much of a problem writing about them, I just don't want my professor to feel a little weird reading about how I do not consider myself to have any family, or friends.
What is one article of clothing or accessory from the opposite sex that you don't understand? What about the same sex?
I don't really get the whole cufflinks thing. Do guys actually wear them?? I also don't get the random across the forehead headbands that some chicks have been wearing.
If you were going to get super-important news tomorrow that would result in either extreme happiness or extreme depression, what could a friend do for you to calm your nerves?
Cupcakes or regular cake?
whats the best movie you've seen this year? why?
If it makes any difference, the shirt is from a few years ago, and so I can't just buy another of the exact same one.
What's the last gross thing that happened to you?
EDIT: I did it and they were really sweet and loved it!
What is something nice you wish someone would do for you?
TQC, will you be nice and try to do something in the comments for that person?
1) Can you believe it's almost February? Where did this month go?!
2) I have discovered that I'm lactose intolerant. This means, no lie, about half my diet is gone. I used to drink a LOT of milk, eat a lot of cheese and yogurt. Right now, I can't have any of it (not even a slice of cheese!) without having a stomach ache from hell and some other not-so-nice things (I'll spare you the TMI).
This is seriously, seriously, making me upset. Aside from soy milk (which isn't bad, just expensive and I can't really afford it), what kinds of alternatives are there as far as lactose-free cheese and yogurt go? I would imagine there's soy ice cream (or some kind of alternative), but I'm not big on ice cream anyway.
3) Are you lactose-intolerant? If so, when did you start noticing it? I'm only 20, so this is kind of concerning to me. :/
4) My roommate called me and said he probably couldn't come into the paper tonight to work because he kicked in a door. And that he would explain later. What in hell is he up to? I've already been assured that he didn't kick in the door to our house.
5) Do you prefer black or blue pens when you write? (Or a different color entirely?) I much prefer black pens to blue ones. But I found a blue sharpie-pen that I fell in love with...
Has this ever happened to you?
Any idea how I fix this?
Do you like them?
I used to be really averse towards thrift shopping, but there's this store in my city called Buffalo Exchange that I just recently discovered, and I really like it a lot. It also has far better quality stuff than Goodwill and Salvation Army.
Let's say you were moving and a friend of the opposite sex offered to help you move. They offered to start in your bathroom and bedroom, and you had a lot of sorting to do still, so you agreed. Later, you go into the back to offer them a drink, when you see your friend sniffing something of yours. Which of these things of yours, if, was being sniffed out by your friend, would bother you the most?
You have a crush on someone at school/work, and one day, your crush walks over to you, hugs you, and then asks for a favor. "It's a really big favor, but I'll totally owe you anything. Can you help me move Saturday? I'm moving in with my boyfriend/girlfriend". Do you help?
You're moving and you need to be out by the end of the tomorrow. You still have a lot to do and everybody know you is busy the next day. You're going to have to do 12 hours of moving all by yourself. You resign yourself to this horrible fate when, that night, your most recent ex calls/texts/emails you and says they really want to get back together, and they'll do ANYTHING you want., just for a chance to show you how much they care. Your ex has the use of a truck. Would you be willing to humor your ex and let them think you're reconsidering getting back togther with them just so moving day will be less painful?
(let's say if you are sitting on the bed, facing the foot of it.)
do you share the bed with anyone? (who?)
are you male or female?
left, yes: my boyfriend & usually 1 cat, sometimes the other one as well, female.
I just looked and her latest album is filled with pictures of me that I HATE.
Do I sneak onto her computer and delete them? (I had no hair and looked like barney that day)
What was the last nice thing you did for someone?
What was the last nice thing that someone did for you?
ETA: i just got a macbook over the weekend.. and this might sound like a stupid question but i'm new to macs.. is there a delete button? i know the "backspace" button is the delete button but i'm talking about the delete button you'd find on a pc, where you can delete things in front of the cursor. thanks! haha
2)when reading, do you read in waves? like 3 sci fi books in a row and then 4 true crime books in a row?
