What's your favorite kind of literature?
This really just doesn't make sense to me, is it always this hard and / or expensive to start yourself off with your own phone? What should I do?
Alsooo, when I turned 18 I got my first debit card under my name and blah blah, big kid stuff. Apparently, if you run your card as credit, it's the exact same as running it as debit, only you build your credit score up? I don't understand. Why is it the same? I thought if you ran your card as credit you get a bill at the end of the month. I guess since it's a DEBIT card being run as credit, it still just comes immediately out of your account?? So if it really is this easy, I could build up some credit with my debit carddzz and then set myself with AT&T?
ETA: Thank you, everyone! I've got the card thing straightened all out, I guess with my bank you get 'points' not credit like with a credit card.
Would either of these things happen to your sugar walls?
I personally think that is ridiculous.
What is unique about your country's money?

With that said, What is your favorite remake?
And what is the worst remake you've ever seen?

My boyfriend tells me last night that I am pale in the way that I look malnourished, not just lacking a tan.
What am I missing from my diet?!
SRS/NON SRS answers appreciated.
HOWEVER, in the meantime, he'd be taking a pay cut. He'd be starting at minimum wage again. He makes a few dollars more than that now.
so my question,
1. Would you take the job for less pay at first, if there is a high chance ( but not a guaranteed chance) of getting a promotion + a lot more pay in the near future?
ETA: He'd be staying part time at his old job for a bit, to make up the pay difference.
What kind of pets do you have, and what are their names?
I have a Maine Coon (see user pic). Her name is Iris, I want to get another Maine Coon so she has a friend and I'm looking for name ideas. :)

i'm at the bottom of the first page, and just now noticed that i'm only supposed to be writing about native american CULTURE. i have a page about native americans' relations with the settlers and next to nothing about their culture. wahhhh.
I don't think it's going to happen.
Will you share a funny or disturbing story you have read?
I need a seating arrangement for my computer that satifies the following conditions:
1. allows for cross-legged sitting. I'm "overly plump", so no teen furniture
2. has some back support, or allows me to lean back a bit
3. allows for a smallish dog to be next to me/in my lap.
4. is comfortable enough for extended (12 hours) sessions in front of the computer
Suggestions? Help me become the true computer geek that I know I can be!
I'm playing around with the idea of a bean bag in a papasan base, to get it high enough for the desk. Are there pedestal bases for bean bags? I googled, but no luck.
Acceptable or unacceptable? Why?
If so, what is it and why do you like it?
2) Do you ever type out a question, decide you hate it, and then come up with a new one? Can you tell I did that for this question?
3) Do you like to shake things up a bit and see what kind of reactions you can get out of people? I do that all the time. I think one day it might come back and bite me in the ass.
4) I'm wearing a button-down shirt today, and it's black. Unfortunately I seem to have gotten toothpaste on it. How can I get the toothpaste off? I've tried wetting my fingers and rubbing it out/off, but it's not working. I have a meeting later this afternoon as well...toothpaste would not be a nice addition to my outfit. =/
5) What are you doing with your TV? Did you buy the converter thingy? If not, do you plan to, or are you just gonna chuck the TV? We're keeping our TV, but since we don't get any channels or ever watch it anyway, we're just gonna continue to use it for DVDs and videogames. This question inspired by the local newspaper, who wrote an article about the sudden increase of thrown-out TVs, and how no one's really sure of how to to dispose of them safely.
Is there a place I should forward it to? I just feel like it should be send somewhere based on the content and the posing as a government sanctioned email.
Fabric! Nice print of fugly? It walks that line for me, and I cannot decide.
Hose! Females and others who like pantyhose, have you ever found a brand that doesn't cut you in two at the waistline? Know a brand that I could wear a dress with and not have the bumpity lumps in the middle? I'm *this close* to looking for bodystockings and nobody should have to be subjected to that horror.
Halp! Why don't I feel like working today???
Do you think I could haggle them down to $10,000 "out the door"? Is that too low; kind of insulting? (from a dealership)
Can you give me tips on haggling a vehicle purchase? I'm pretty shy and weak.
(You can base your costume around that TQCer's looks, their username etc. Open to interpretation. Be creative!)
my icon says it all :D
Have you ever wanted to learn one, but never did, if so what?
I've played the violin since I was 2 and a half, a bit of recorder, and I'm relearning the ukulele starting on Wednesday :) (I played it in elementary school). I can also find my way around a cello, viola and bass.
I've always wanted to properly learn piano. I can plunk out a few things after taking it as an elective at music camp. And properly learn double bass.
does this sound good for lunch?
salmon taco with some fresh chopped spinach instead of lettuce, some white onions, a little sour cream and a little cheese.
I don't really like how it looks, but I guess whoever I'm getting my t-shirts from likes them to be see through.
If you're in college, have you gone to all of your classes yet? I still have the first class for the one I have today and then two more first classes tomorrow
...only the covers were in color.
Do you prefer them the old way or with the different color bands they wear now? If you remember that far back, did you have a problem telling them apart when they all wore red?
food and dongs do not count.
Gonna try a yoga-only place.
It's closer. AND it's just yoga and yes lots more classes. Only thing you pay (as far as I can tell) is the class. I can pay per class or monthly or even yearly.
I like this idea...ty you gothstar

ETA: This is on renting a new apartment, not talking them down on the current rent, if that helps.
I do (luckily)! I'm checking a place out this Wednesday! I like looking at other peoples things when we check out the place.
Does your male SO have facial hair? Do you like it?
Mine did until last night when we got bored. When I look at him now I get all weird about it because it reminds me of when we first met when he didn't have a beard. I like his beard a lot but I don't miss it yet.
It's 1:30 pm where I am. I've been up since 9 fighting the urge to go back to sleep since 10:30. Should I just give in already?
If not what should I do to keep busy?
And for those not interested or those wanting another question, what was the last bad movie you saw? (I watched King Arthur last night.)
The best bit about eating chilli crab with my bare hands is that if I eat over a long period of time, after I'm done eating my fingers will have that tingly chilli feeling that I usually get in my mouth.
How about when mixing drinks?
On a different note, what was the last bad news you received? My good friend's dad died last night, and his girlfriend/my best friend's dog died today. :[
What was I going to do, TQC?
what the hell "setting" is this? what purpose does it serve? haha. just kind of a weird thing to do.
thanks! any input is appreciated, preferably serious. let me know if i need to clarify.
Also, when I translate "to begin with--everything", does it make sense to say "pour commence avec, chaque jour"?
if you don't know french, will you translate both of those into the language of your choice?
The other night, I had a dream that I was getting it on with one of my former students (I used to teach high school English). I woke up utterly horrified.

Are there any books/websites/etc out there with detailed meal plans/shopping lists and ideas that also discuss nutrition and necessary vitamin intake that aren't like, "OMG you giant lazy fatass" and also focus on natural foods (i.e., won't recommend that I buy fat free cream cheese or something else horrendous and godawful)?
ETA: Is it fast/ do you like it?
Anyone want to tell me about Verizon FIOS?

C: Scamper quickly across the first three lanes to median so you are out of the way and the car can pass.
D: Walk to the middle of the second lane and then stop and stand there like a dumbass, staring at the car.
2. What was the most fantastic thing to happen to you lately?
Its now 2:30 pm.
Can I make it and leave it unbaked for a few hours or will it go soggy and horrible?
EDIT:: My SO has a very unpleasant picture of me taken when I was very drunk, and refuses to delete. I'm really worried it's going to get seen by someone else as it's on his computer which his family use. How can I charmingly get him to delete it?
I dont know where else its stored so deleting it secretly isnt really an option. Begging so far hasn't worked.
Can we have a sing-a-long? Post the first line to your favorite and let the other TQCers help you carry the tune. :D Break up the midafternoon Monday slump!
1. A pile of thumbnails in the main body of the page that open into their full-size image in a new pop-up window (with arrows that let you view the next/last fullsize image in this new page)?
2. Thumbnails lined up on the side of the page with the main body displaying the full-size image you selected?
Does either option seem "classier" than the other, or am I thinking about this too hard?
If that question bored you to tears, what radio station do you usually listen to? I just tuned in to the Traditional Persion Music station, apparently. x)

How big is the gap between your legs?
2)What's the most fucked up, disturbing, or puzzling movie you've ever seen?

If not, will you tell me the circumference of your wrists?
(So far the only idea I can come up with is to go as a zombie and be necrophilia.)
Your SO's ex drops off a box of your SO's stuff that had been found in a closet somewhere. He/she isn't home, so you sort of root around the box out of curiousity, when you see a VHS tape marked 'birthday sex tape'. Do you watch it?
For those of you who said they'd watch it...you put the tape in and let it play, and sure enough, it's a sex tape of your SO and his/her ex. Turns out, the sex was better with the ex than it was with you. Different positions, your SO seems more invested, and makes different pleasurable sounds that he/she has never made with you. Are you jealous?
After watching the tape, what do you do now?
You're having sex with your SO, and you're on top. As it's getting really good, you hear your lover fart in bed. At first, you ignore it or laugh it off but continue, but then, the noxious vapours waft upwards and up your nostrils. It's disgusting. You're thisclose to getting off, but it really does smell like something had crawled up your lover's ass and died, then escaped up your nostrils. What do you do?
Why do I keep getting cramps in the toes of my right foot when driving?

What's your favorite kind of sushi, and could you please tell me what is in it?!
I've been feeling sick on and off all day. I had to get up in the middle of my afternoon class to go sit on the cold bathroom floor for a few minutes because I started feel nauseous. The cold of the floor helped my nausea almost instantly, and I was fine for the rest of class, but I'm sitting here in my townhouse half-sweating, half-shivering, wrapped in a blanket in my pajamas. My legs feel really weak, and I was shaking really bad but now I'm not. My housemate felt my forehead and says I don't feel like I have a temperature, but her hand felt super warm so I don't know and I don't know where the thermometer is. What's wrong wtih me? I know there's a sort of stomach flu going around campus. Did I catch it? D:
What did you have for lunch today?
I once went to Disneyworld and ran into someone from my art class there.
I also met this guy online from another town, to find out the next day that he's friends with about 8 of my friends in person. How I never met him was beyond me.
I made an lj friend when I lived back in New England. I was friends with him while living in the same town for 8 years and we never met. We lost track of each other and I recently moved the the DC area, to find out he lives here too, and now we finally meet.
EDIT: Some more...
I have moderated certain communities for several years for one specific lj user here. We never met, or friended each other. I am now dating his best friend and old roommate.
I added this guy to myspace and facebook after talking to him online for a while. The next thing, I get a message from a girl I went to school with asking how I knew him (he lived two states away) because she slept with him once.
Have you (or anyone you know) ever done one of those body cleanses, like a juice cleanse or organ cleanse? Which one? How did it work out for you?
I don't usually buy into that stuff, but I'm on a "get into the best health possible" kick and was thinking of trying a colon cleanse or something. But I'm afraid I'll either faint or shit everywhere.
when i was about 7, i walked in on my babysitter (who was about 14) standing against the wall and her older brother (who was about 18/19) with his hand down her pants and kissing her. i started crying and they told me it was a game,not to tell anyone,etc.
i told my mom the next day and she confronted them and the whole family said i was a little troublemaking liar. well her older sister told my mom a few days ago that all of their brothers raped them from when they were kids...and so did their dad. she no longer speaks to the family.
the girl who babysat me still lives with the family and is in her twenties now,she lost a lot of weight recently and ive seen her talking to herself and just acting odd. i want to try and ask her to speak to someone but i don't want to embarass/upset her in any way..
do any of you guys have suggestions on how to approach the subject without being all "OMG UR DAD RAPED U GO TO THE COPS HES A PERV!!"? because i know she has a really close relationship with him, ickk.
also: what is your favorite secret from postsecret?
ETA: If you can't be fucked to name countries: What did you do today?

non-srs answers preferred.
So, with waterfowl season over and the sneakbox put away, how many guns do you own? What kinds? How do you use them? Do you have any you lust over? Pics are a plus. When you find out someone owns "a lot" of guns, how does your opinion change?

ETA: since when is a birthday party like a talent show for the birthday boy/girl? it's so weird that all of these kids on super sweet sixteen put on "performances" for their friends, particularly since there is such a low level of talent in most of them. i loved the girl who sang and did a terrible job and got pissed at her friends about it.
Do you have a day of the week where you do something special? I go see my boyfriend on Tuesdays and we trade off making dinner each week.
I live in a dorm that is connected by a small bathroom to another dorm room... and my neighbors ALWAYS use the phone and pee at the same time. Personally, I think it's disgusting.
ETA: Okay let me ask you this, what if the person is taking a dump? Would your opinion change?
I got to 43 in 7 minutes and then was drawing a blank...i think i need to go back to 4th grade

What color should I paint my nails?
EDIT: Do you have any tips for opening stubborn nail polish bottles?
In dorms, do most girls wear regular clothes, or is it strictly sweats?
Do they really run around in their underwear and a camisole, like these websites would lead me to believe?
What is dorm life like, anyway? Did I miss out on an integral part of the university experience?
My father in law laid out raw beef slabs and I asked "Oh, burgers for dinner?" He said "Yep." But they're not burgers, they're meatballs. No pasta, no salt, no pepper, no garlic, no marinara sauce... just plain ground beef.
I haven't seen or talked to her in weeks, and I just got a message on my cell phone from her. She just broke up with her boyfriend. She told me that one time we hung out that her boyfriend was her best friend for two years before he pressured her into a relationship. She also basically told me that he's her only real friend. So...this sounds like a really sucky breakup.
Anyway, in her message, she said she's having difficulty concentrating and was wondering if I wanted to get a beer with her later tonight. I'd love to, and it really sounds like she needs a friend right now, but I don't really know her that well. On top of that, I'm still with my very first boyfriend ever, so I don't know what it's like to go through a break up. What should I say to her? Any tips on how to make this situation not awkward? I really want to be there for her, but I'm not even very good at that with people I've been friends with for years...
Srs and rampantly speculative answers allowed.
