What is your dream home like? (feel free to post pictures!)
Do you think you can accurately guess someone's age (within 5 years) by their postings?
Are you looking forward to getting older? Having kids? Being married?
The only reason I want these things is because I don't want to die alone.
edit: does anyone want to chat, i feel bored and need company.
Anyone else crack up because of it? I am still giggling.
2. Speaking of funny, what was the last video you watched that made you laugh?
3. What are some of your favorite funny scenes from movies and shows?

Do you love Pieces of Flair on facebook? What does your board look like, right now?
Yes. Yes I do. mine!
What is your current FB status?
Natalie is OH FUCK YES STEELERS!!!!!! 35 SECONDS AND WHAT!? TOUCHDOWN!
If you were to use it, how long would it be before you were seriously injured?
Do you pick your nose?
Do you eat your boogers?
How do you moisturize your nose innards?
And, uh. If you don't pick your nose, how the fuck do you keep it clean in there?
Well, I've kinda hung out with this girl like twice. My bf and her bf are friends so that's how I met her. The second time we all hung out, we hung out at her apt practically all night. She said that we should hang out and stuff, but a lot of people say that so I don't hold my breath. She texted me today for no reason.
With all that being said, would it be weird if I asked her to hang out sometime without our guys so I can actually have conversations with a female that I get along with?
Obv. I have nothing but men in my life, because I'm even clueless about making friends with a girl!
What do you really really want right now?
What am I forgetting to pack?
Alternately, what's in my bag that will probably get confiscated by TSA for their entertainment?
do you give people your number or ask for theirs?
this guy was hitting on me a of couple nights ago but i had to leave.
i gave him my number and said he should text me sometime. but i haven't heard from him yet. how long should i wait? most guys have texted me within a day in the past. dang.
srs answers only.
how much rage, on a scale of one (none) to ten (blind, red-hot) would you feel?
what would you do in my situation?
why don't my parents have an effing webcam so i can watch?
Found it myself, I am awesome. It's a make-work job.
I really enjoyed Their Eyes Were Watching God and Canterbury Tales.
I am slightly behind on my coursework, having not turned in my first assignment yet which I should've done about... two months ago. It is almost finished but I KEEP putting it off.
Should I do it right now this very second and get it over with even though it's late and I am getting quite tired?
Or sleep and do it tomorrow even though the chances of me forgetting and getting distracted are quite high?
If you are American, did you know that people abroad commonly think Americans do not understand subtle sarcasm? Where do you think this comes from?
ETA: If you are NOT American: did you know that in the US the term "yankee" refers to people who grew up above the Mason-Dixon line? Every time someone calls me a "yankee" overseas, I want to shake them and say, "I was raised in the South, you idiot."
I mean, yeah, it would be nice for her if I cleaned it up, and nice for the dog, but there's about a 90% chance that I'll actually throw up upon seeing it and if I do that, she'll have to clean up dog and Rox barf.
My drive from school (outside of Austin TX) to home (Lubbock TX) is seven hours.
ETA: Is it as bad or worse than a mod which allows one sim to, er, rape another sim?
Also, looking for two blogs:
1. Was a lady who keeps a feminist type blog, but whenever she becomes pregnant she becomes a blathering mess of "OMG BEING PREGNANT AND BREEDING IS AWES
2. Was a woman who is on LJ. She posted something about self harm, someone contacted LJ Abuse and had a cop come out and arrest her for being "suicidal".
Anyone know who I'm talking about and what their URL's are? I've lost both of them and I have a vague interest in reading up.
We have snow right now, like 5 inches. This is very rare. I feel like I should be doing something to commemorate this event before it inevitably all melts by morning.
Do you like snow?
If could choose the gender of your future baby, would you want a boy or a girl? WHY?
How stupid is London right now?
10cm of snow and everything CEASES TO FUNCTION. I am ashamed of us.
What was your favorite superbowl commercial?
I can't decide between the Jason Statham Audi commercial or the Teleflora commercial with the boxed flowers telling the girl that nobody wants to see her naked.
okay, so this year i earned all my money from federal work study and i made just over $1,000
do i have to file my taxes??
also (in case anyone has experience with this) -- are there any financial benefits for a college student if their parents do not claim them on their taxes?
(ETA: i'm also working on establishing residency in a different state than my parents live in. if they don't claim me could this help my application?)
and, finally, how exactly do i go about filing my taxes?
i've never done it before and i've just been staring at my W-2 wondering what to do with it.
I would prefer it to be a classic or modern classic.
What would you like to know about American football?
Perplexed? Bamboozled? Confused? Just trolling? Ask, and I shall attempt to sort it out for you.
So, tqc, how much would you pay for a vintage 80s T-shirt previously worn by a starving African child?
Still, I can't shake the feeling that school is taking too long for me and I'm somehow a failure for graduating later than my peers. Do you think I'm doing ok, as far as where I am in my life right now? I'm happy, but I've always been insecure and a worrier, so I can't take the happyness at face value. :/ Anything I could do to help myself feel better about this?
I love my roommates, and I love my apartment. However, when our lease is up in May, one of them is going her separate way to get an apartment with a different set of friends. My other roommate and I do not want to split up, as we're both picky about who we live with and like each other. I'm trying to convince her to move to a 2 bedroom townhouse 20 minutes from where we are now (the same company owns the townhouse community as owns our apartment complex). The rent is going to be about $300/month cheaper, but we'll have to each pay half instead of a third. It saves us from screening new roommates, though. However, her job is in the town we currently live in, as are her family and friends. Moving to the townhouse, though, would give us more room, and I would be closer to work (I'm currently driving an hour both ways while she's driving two minutes).
ETA: I already presented the idea, very briefly. What I got was "I don't really want to move to Owings Mills because I'll have to drive further to work" which is basically what has triggered the "talk her into it because it's slightly selfish to not take my needs/wants into consideration" mindset as opposed to "discuss it with her".
What would be the best way to present to her the benefits of moving to the townhouse in terms of financial and my personal reasons?
Have you had to deal with a situation like this? What did you do?
Do you like your roommates, or are you praying for the day your lease is up?

Have you ever seen a co-worker enter a toilet stall and, much to your embarrassment, had to smell their poop, leading you to never look at (or smell) them the same ever again?
not just a crappy day, but the i've-been-feeling-like-shit-for-weeks kind. i'm stuck!
Would anyone else like the Resume Words list? If so leave your email here or send me a message and I'll get it to you guys in one mass email instead of a million single ones.
ETA: I uploaded it to my Flickr account so I could just post it on here...I can still email it if you wish but I figured this might be easier.

Do I need an E111 form or a EHIC card thingy whatsit to go to France?

Do you think that this should be friendpocalypse post for TQC?
I'm curious. Has anyone tried KY yours and mine? Is it as heavenly as the commercials make it? lol.
Would you rather?

Also, (and I know I could google this but whatev) what are the main plusses and minuses to cloves vs. cigarettes?
For those that don't care about smoking, are you happy with what Punxsutawney Phil had to say or do you yearn for Spring as I do? Do you even believe that a groundhog can predict the future/weather?

we just redid the website for my work and i feel like there are a few things that may need to be changed/tweaked. if you are bored, check out this website: shibori.com and let me know what you think about the design of the page.

what weird/random rules do you remember from home,school, etc?
2. If so, was any evidence of that ever seen on a plain film x-ray, or did it only show up on the MRI/CT scan?
My doctor says she's seeing a possible one on a plain film x-ray...I've been reading these reports for years as part of my job, and I've never heard of that.
3. If my doctor thinks she sees a herniated disc on my x-ray, she should give me good drugs y/n?

Someone in a community I moderate posted this question and I figured that a better and/or faster response might come from here. So here goes:
Kind of a random question here, but while I am sitting at the table studying, I am also watching a guy lower himself off of the top of the building across from me with a bunch of ropes and a bucket of tools, and I am wondering what kind of wage these guys make. Is rope access a lucrative career choice or do people get in to it simply for the thrill of working suspended hundreds of feet in the air? (A quick google search gave me info on training and safety but not much on jobs.)
This is really just a question for those, like me, who are wasting time on LJ instead of doing something more productive - an answer isn't urgent :)
I really need John Steinbeck's Travels With Charley :(
I've edited this half a dozen times and can't make that sentence not look weird, maybe tis just me.
I had this happen on Saturday and I probably didn't hide my O_o face very well, but I wasn't sure what to say.
So, I suck at creative writing, and for my writing class I have to write a 9-15 page paper about anything I want as long as it's influenced by Walden by Henry David Thoreau. I've been toying with the idea of writing about connecting with nature in an unexpected place such as NYC, since I live in that area, but that's as far as I've gotten, and I wouldn't even know where to begin.
Do you have any suggestions? I have to have an idea drafted by Wednesday!
Thats a question right?
If you had 8 hours to spend all by your lonesome in NYC, how would you spend it?
What do you hear right now? I am listeing to Charles Hamilton on MTVU and Carry on My Wayward Son on the speakers around this room.
Explanations with links are better.
Edit: Since I'm the only one this is happening, does anyone know how to fix it or should I just hope for it to fix itself? I don't think it's the web browser because I've been to other sites and they're fine. This is also happening on both the Mac and Windows side of my laptop.
Edit 2: It's fixed now. Thank you everyone for your help
Do any of these things actually help you get better?
I just got Netflix again... And I have no queue. What should I add to it?
If it makes a difference, Breyer's Reese's cup ice cream with Hershey's special dark syrup on top.
For example, watching Scary Movie before Scream.
Instead of going home to have hot sex though, me and my boyfriend are committed to going to hot (literally, bikrams!) yoga...
My question is this: I've been experiencing a lack of sex drive for a verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry long time now, due to a variety of reasons, and it is only now slowly coming back. I haven't felt randomly horny like this in ages!
What can I do to get this feeling back when I'm done yoga and back at home? I want to have sexy times tonight but hate trying to force it when I'm not in the mood.
Or/also: Any tips for improving/stimulating sex drive in general?
I just don't want to look too silly by dressing up too formally/not dressing up enough. It's opening night if that helps.
2. What movie have you seen the most? If you had to guess, how many times would you say you have seen it?
3 a) If you are keeping a tally of movies you've seen this year, would you share it?
b) If not, or if you want to answer this one too, what are some movies that you watch every time they come on TV?
Is this just because its cold? Theres nothing in it.
I live in Massachusetts and I really need some new ideas of where to go. My thoughts are somewhere outside of New England, considering I've hit up NH, VT, ME, CT, MA and RI way too much.
I was thinking of going to Baltimore/Annapolis but I might be in the DC area next fall and maybe i could make a side trip while I'm there.
Any ideas for fun road trips for a Massachusetts resident? BONUS points if it is close to cheap lodging or camping spots.

What is overwhelming you right now?
A few laundry hampers and hangers that aren't cheap plastic! My boyfriend and I have gotten into the very lazy habit of chucking our clothes all over the ground when we're done wearing them. After 2 weeks worth piled up on the floor and a wash they end up..tossed in a box, only to be worn and then thrown on the ground again.
I assume this will go on for one more month until we move again and after the baby I'll probably want things to stay neat and tidy.
these three are the ones by my house.
edit: oh and if you want to explain your reasoning that's nifty too :)

Only five of the twelve class members have successfully completed the VLS assignment and that was every assignment submitted. I am very pleased with five of you.
This is not the way to impress he who is about to evaluate you. I know a few of you had some questions which I answered. Since my instructions to you included a daily check of email, I am sure that all of your questions were answered. Why then do I not have all of the assignments? It must be the Mail system. Gee, I hope that this is getting to you. I guess I will have to report that the system is broken to the tech folk. Alas, I should wait until we meet in order to verify this mishap.
Well if all is well I will see you Tuesday"
The class doesn't meet until tomorrow morning. If he emailed us this assignment, isn't it acceptable that it can be done any time BEFORE the class tomorrow? Am I missing something? Is this email full of 'tude or is it just me?
EDIT: It's due at 10pm tonight...it's only 7:30pm now though. hah
Alternatively, do you plan out your life by the decade or have specific long term goals? Goals like: in 2011, I'll be married. By 2016, I'll have two children. By 2020, I'll go back and get a law degree. (These aren't actually my goals, just an example)
What was your fifteen minutes of fame?

What's the last book you read?
Did you like it?
I love necks and hands.
my question to you is this. would the refund bounce since my card and account dont exsist? or because its through paypal will it hang in limbo forever? could the company retrieve it?
i asked for a refund last night and an email confirming from paypal that it was sitting there when i got home from work today, so i didnt get much of a chance to go 'but not to that card please.' i didnt want to put that in the email i sent as it was a snippy 'give me a refund or im going to take this further' type affair as i had been having alot of problems with them responding to me. all it says in the email is that if you have any questions to log in to the paypal site, but i cant coz i dont have a blooming account.
I've got the Sex and the City collectors set, but two of the discs won't play right and of course, it's got two of my favorite episodes, one on each :(
What box/collector set dvds do you have?
SatC, The Golden Girls, Full House, Little House on the Prairie, and The Girls Next Door.
Here are my options. All instructors seem well-qualified.
- Jiukido Jujitsu
- Shao-Lin Kung Fu and Tai Chi
- Shorin Ryu Karate
- Traditional Taekwondo
- Ying Hung Gwoon
- Krav Maga
My goals are to feel confident in my self-defense abilities, flexibility, physical fitness, balance, etc. But for now, nothing too intense since I'll also be dealing with a considerable workload.
So, do any of you have any experience in the above forms? Opinions and thoughts?

Are you into any modern poetry? My friend just recently got me into Rives and George Watsky.
Have you ever read Cyrano De Bergerac? did you not absolutely love it? Thoughts?
fyi: I'm into movies like The Fast and the Furious, Death Race, Transformers etc.
Specifically, I want to order a blazer they have, but they only have M, not L, and I'm often right in-between. I have basically no boobs, and am quite slim, but I'm also very tall and have long arms, so it makes sizes weird since if I get something large, it'll often have too big a bust area so it poofs out on me or some crap, but if I get medium sometimes the arms aren't long enough even though the rest is fitted correctly. Yes yes I know tailoring and whatnot, but getting the L isn't an option for me, and you can't tailor-larger.
(Anyone have one of their blazers who could measure the arm length for me? A shot in the dark, but you never know... Or if you can tell whether they run large, run small, or whatever....?)
I don't know how to explain this... I like to keep my AIM buddy list "docked" on the side on my computer screen and sometimes I accidentally drag my buddy list too far off the desktop... so I can't see my buddy list anymore and because it's off the screen, I can't use my mouse to drag it back. Does this happen to anyone else? How to fix it?
I see many book recs online, but which ones should I actually read? Take into account that I live in Croatia and should like to find older books in the library... so no really new stuff. Help?
I also have other around-the-house ingredients (dairy products, seasonings, etc).
Please help my hunger!
i know you guys hate questions like this, but i'm moving to the tampa bay area (tarpon springs, to be exact) from massachusetts in a few weeks and i really would like to know... what the hell is a small-town new england girl supposed to do there? i know NO ONE and NOTHING there, but i'm going through a very painful breakup and losing my dog and jobs i love, so i really could use some fun things to do / new people to make this a little easier. :(
If so, which do you use the most?
what are you doing tonight?
what are you currently excited about?
what do you do when you're snowed in?
I have intensely color treated/ damaged hair. I had a stylist over bleach my hair when she did highlights and it just ruined my hair. Saturday I had to dye it all basically black so I'll have any hopes of it returning to a normal shade one day with out cutting it all off. It gets oily on top and super dry on bottom.
I work out every day so not showering isnt an option.
I currently use: Aveda Color Conserve Conditioner and Aveda Air Control Hair Spray.
Recommend new products? Thanks for any help!!
