What would you say to Jill to get her to realize she doesn't neeeeeed these people's happiness to be content with herself?
"The colonists' great want for unity..."
"Napoleon's want for power may have eventually led to his exile."
Does this sound weird to anyone else? Is this a legitimate use of want? Am I just being overly picky by telling them to pick another synonym?
ETA: I should mention, if it makes a difference, that in both contexts the student was using 'want' as a synonym for 'desire' and not for 'lack of'.
Do you like the smell of sunscreen?
2 - Why did it suck so much??

I went outside for a smoke and nearly mistook a skunk for a cat.

Have you ever used one of those 'book your hotel online and save' websites? Did you save more than a few dollars?
I'm planning a trip for the summer and I'm trying to figure up prices.
I plan on eating cheap while on vacation, but I want to visit two, maybe three, of the nicer restaurants. If my cheap meals were fast food, with a few nice meals thrown in, about how much will I need for food? (ETA: I'll be in Baltimore) (ETA2: I'll be there for 9 days)
Is there a trip planning website that you can enter things into like food planning, hotels, and gas to figure up a budget?
Have you ever gone on a trip with a budget? What did you do?
WHAT COLOUR SHOULD I PAINT IT?! It has a lot of light and is pretty fuckin' big so I'm not bothered about dark colours

03- What was the commercial name for it? If you don't know it, ask us and we can guess =)

WARNING: if you disagree with me I will call you a hurtful name.
What kinds of internet things should I do?
Nothing obscene or with lots of flash, plz.
I have questions about what she can and can't eat, I've been Googling but there are some specific things I'm wondering about.
Like is mayonnaise ok? Or is it pretty much NO sugar?
What should we serve for drinks? I'm thinking sparkling water with fresh lemon slices, a variety of unsweetened iced tea, hot tea and coffee...
She hates Splenda btw, so we're trying to leave all of that artificial crap out..
I am starving to death. Is my stomach going to get swollen like a malnourished Ethiopian child's?
Do you ever get that feeling like there's water in your ear even when you haven't been swimming and you haven't showered in over 24 hours and you haven't poured anything in your ears or been drunk and passed out on the sofa of someone's house with a bunch of other drunk people plotting to pour orange juice in your ear?
right now it is raining ice and we have a ton covering the sidewalks/streets/etc.
do they cancel class? nahhh.
Do you eat fast?
I do all three things quickly, but sometimes I will slow down during my meal to enjoy it. But even when I slow down, I'm still through before my husband.
The question mark has been added.
does anyone know what "off its box" means? good or bad?
I'm thinking silver with lime green polka-dots.
How? (pictures are great)
Is there anything that people shouldn't use when decorating their workspace, aside from the obvious (porn, etc.)?
With all of the "Go Green" environmentally friendly advertising that has popped up over the last year, do you roll your eyes at it nowadays or do you take this advertising in to consideration?
What if the green-claiming product is ...software?
attempted exercise. some crafting. i.e. fuck all.
2)what is the weirdest fetish you know of?
My aunt and uncle live with their daughters. One daughter is 27 and has a boyfriend. One daughter lives in an apartment in the house, is divorced and has two kids.
I just had to send invitations to them.
How the hell do you do this?
I wrote one to my aunt and uncle, one to the cousin and her boyfriend, and one to the cousin with the kids.
I just feel like three invites to the same house is excessive.
Have you ever had rumors spread about you? How true were they?
Would you like to tell me about the most recent drama in your life?
now kids, i'm talkin' CHEAP. like that thing breaks after one use(i only need to use it once or twice). basically i don't wanna spend more than $15. CAN IT BE DONE?
EDIT-O-MATIC: Buy me a drink?
If you had a tv show, what would it be called?
Is there something weird about going to dinner at 6:30? Is that too early? I just don't want to spend my entire evening in a restaurant.
What time do you make dinner reservations for?
If you make reservations and they ask for a name, do you give them your first name or your surname?
eta: After he asked me about the time, he said, "And just to let you know, we're doing hour and a half rotations. Is an hour and a half okay or do you want me to book you two hours?"
I told him an hour and a half was fine. I was surprised he was telling me that, though. Is telling your customers about your rotation schedule normal?
The SO and I want to take a vacation soon. I do not have a passport because I am lame (though it is on my goal list to get accomplished this year).
Where in the U.S. should we go?
Mine would be popcorn chicken and potato wedges from KFC. My co-worker just got some and it smells soooooo gooooood. I'm so hungry right now!
ETA: Okay, maybe this post was a bad idea. My mouth is now watering uncontrollably.
Haha, er, yes.
Have you seen any good movies lately?
What's your most recent example of it?
For me, I found the mushroom in my icon in a Ruby Tuesday's salad. I refused to eat it because it looked so sad. It was the world's saddest mushroom. I sat it on my plate and let it sit there by itself the whole time. We were eating with my mom, who even put it in a littl epill container to take home. It's since dried up and had to be tossed, lol, but I still feel better because I didn't eat it.
I had plans to go snowshoeing with my hunny today, our one day off together, but my boss asked me yesterday if I could come into work today. I cancelled my plans and waited for her to call me to tell me what time. I called her just now and she told me not to come in. I can't get ahold of my boyfriend now to see if he still wants to get together.
Which program would you be most likely to partake in?
Fruity Pebbles describes the Flintstones' ____?
If 'the early bird gets the worm' is an adage promoting early rising in the morning, what, then, would the lesson of the early worm be?
If someone said they were 'picked up by the fuzz', what would you assume they meant?
If you got rid of them, where did you give them to?
I'm contemplating sending my old dresses to Goodwill seeing as I'll never wear them again, but I feel so nostalgic when I see them that I'm not sure I can go through with it.
What was the last book you bought?
I've just bought Suspects, by David Thomson. Has anyone read it?
whats your favorite kind of muffin?
what game do you mostly play on iminlikewithyou.com?
He works on V-day but insists we celebrate it on Thursday since it's the day he isn't working. He's off again on Monday. I was surprised since we've never really done anything at all for it before in the past 3 years. Is he going to propose to me while we're celebrating fake V-day?
I have zero dollars and even less cooking/baking skills (why is he with me?). What should I get/do for him on fake V-day that requires little to no money? We're obviously going to have sex....we do that a lot so that can't be an answer.
If you have an SO what are you getting them for Valentines Day?
If you don't at least you get to eat all the chocolate to yourself! Yay chocolate!
How many wiki sites are you familiar with?
edit: WHY ARE THERE SO MANY DARN QUESTIONS ON THIS WALMART APPLICATION?! Considering the people I've seen working there, I doubt they filled out all this crap.
Last Thursday, I came down with a cold and I had a sore throat (with a cough) that lingered for a few days... so on Saturday, one of my friends randomly gave me a long list of "fixes", one of which was to eat a lot of ice cream. I told her that I avoid dairy products during a cold, because it makes mucus worse, but she still insisted that no, it helps! Seeing I already told her why I didn't want to, it bothered me.

Yes, I am over thinking this.
- How did you meet your SO?
Did you get an Easter basket last year? Do you expect to receive one this year?
The Faint will be at Webster Hall 2 nights in a row! I should go both nights, y/y?
How would you document that you sent bonds back to the Public Debt in order to have them reissued? Would you be happy with just copies of the forms and the bonds themselves? Why am I freaking out so much over this?
I love Natasha, Jade, And Jael
oh and i loved caridee!!!!
What do you think the most over rated book is?
My question is this: I was going to make an Asian style broccoli and shrimp rice bowl with a soy-sauce base for the sauce, but it doesn't seem ~wintery~ enough. I want something warm and cozy. Problem is, tonight has to be shrimp night. Can you think of any tasty shrimp recipes that are more appropriate to the ~storm~?
You guys I'm so excited for snow.
1) are you a fangirl/fanboy?
2) what are you favorite fandoms?
3) where exactly is it that people learn all this fandom lingo?
--Cuz apparently, I'm not in on it. I just found out AkuRoku day existed about a month ago, and I just found out today that it falls on my birthday. And then I feel like an idiot because I know nothing about the fandoms that I like.
I have these dreams a lot where something majorly bad happens and I try to call 911 on my cell phone and for some reason it just won't work. It'll come up 922 or 811 or any number of things. In my most recent dream, the phone told me that it wasn't allowed to dial numbers where the 11s come together like that (like 411 or 511) WTF? And then I'm screaming and freaking out because people are hurt and I'm incapable of summoning help and it's my fault that they are dying.
My husband says I have dream fail.
For everyone: what's your favorite restaurant?
What if the man was in a common-law relationship instead of marriage? That is, if he "broke up" with his common-law partner and slept with another woman before the separation is official. How much legal trouble could the other woman potentially get into?
FYI This took place in Canada, but I'm interested in laws on this matter from any other country.
Do you think they'd dump you?
(And please don't try to dissuade me, I've lost 25 pounds recently and one bad day will not doom me.)
However, Lisa asks Angela to cover up when Lisa has her boyfriend over. Angela really hates this idea. Is Lisa's request reasonable? What do you think of this situation?
*Bonus: If Lisa offered to do some of Angela's laundry (as she will be wearing more clothes), then is it reasonable?
Are there any good ways to search real estate listings for multiple companies (like prudential, remax, etc) at one website? I've tried realtor.com and condos.com, but I'm still getting different results on different sites. I'm specifically looking for condos in or around Anne Arundel County, Maryland, if that helps narrow it down a bit.
Favourite books that have been made into films?
You don't have to have enjoyed both, I rarely like the film after having read the book.
I'm about to watch Everything Is Illuminated.
I have never sold a 'collectors' item on ebay and it does seem the obvious place to do it but I am a bit curious if there is another route to go with an item like this?
Plus, I've never been to disneyland - is it worth it for adults?

My roommate has a date tomorrow and wants me out of the house. I have my own room, but I really don't feel like sitting around watching movies all day. Everyone I know is working. What should I do?
2. Are you a fan of something that loved ones think is silly? (I'm a big suck for Hello Kitty and Transformers.. coworkers think it's odd when I show up with my Optimus prime backpack :D)
Will you please shoot me?
My friend originally thought that this bump was a spider bite, but it has gotten larger over the course of a week. It is also getting stiffer and has begun to cause her pain. Do you have any idea what the Hell this thing is and why it is slowly taking her arm over? (yes, she has a doctor appointment on Friday the 13th).
Top 5 songs to get you in the mood for going out. Off the top of my head mine are, in no particular order....

Spann's Blues - Otis Spann
Rock and a Hard Place - Rolling Stones
The Way You Make Me Feel - Michael Jackson
Is peanut butter a carb?
I'm back from school and I'm not used to my mom's chain smoking ways yet, the smell is making me ill. Ever since I was little she's been smoking in the house, but once I'm away from it for so long it seriously grosses me out. Then all my clothes reek of it.
Did you ever lose your object? Was it traumatizing?
[on girls] curly or straight hair? long or short?

EDIT: like this (NSFW)
My friend told me he was going to send me flowers for V-Day (we're very close), after I told him I didn't want anything. I just think flowers are a waste of money, unless you plant them in the ground. Maybe that makes me very un-romantic. They're pretty but they're so freaking expensive.
It was then formatted and new usernames etc put in.
I now can't access folders from last year, as once I get to the Pictures, Movies, Music etc menu, it says 'you do not have sufficient privileges'
Is there any way of getting my pictures out of these folders?
How long does it take you to get ready for work in the morning?
I work part-time in retail, and I can wake up an hour before my shift, get ready and still be there to clock on ten minutes early.
For the linkaphobes, basically they're talking about cutting classic books out of school curriculum because they have racist words/themes.
I have House Problems. My wall-mounted heater (the only heat for the house) has been broken for a couple weeks, my toilet seems to be clogged to such a degree that no amount of plunging will make it drain properly, and I just discovered that my shower has now gone from "draining much too slowly" to actually COUGHING UP GRAY GUNK from inside the drain.
I moved into this house a month ago, and for the previous several years it had been unoccupied 99% of the time. I'm renting from my landlord who lives next-door.
question: my landlord should be responsible for getting this stuff fixed, yes? Or would you expect that I would need to pay for a plumber/etc myself?
Also: WTF WHY IS MY SHOWER POSSESSED?
how do i use the "or" operator with Strings?
i tried doing an if statement that looked like this:

Do you know of anyone with less than basic cable, still using rabbit ears?
I want to get some wine, cheese, and some sort of dinner-meal-item-thing for me and the boyfriend tomorrow night. I do not know what sort of dinner ish thing to make, though. It's my turn to cook but I have a lot of studying to do tomorrow, so the simpler the better. Any suggestions?
I keep getting offers to buy laptops or requests to vote for their band in some contest. This is obnoxious and a violation of university policy but I'd feel like a bitch telling them so :/

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
I really really really want this shirt and today is the last day to order it.
I have $2 (Canadian) to my name, BUT I wouldn't have to pay for it until next month. (I'm also over 900 dollars in debt.)
Should I order it?
Also, besides hookers and blow, what is your favourite thing on earth ever? Can you choose something?
I'd have to say mine would be the internet. :) Because it encompasses everything I love.
My question was going to be, "TQC, when did the world last conspire to make things work out for you?"
