How much would something like this cost to be cleaned?
This girl played a song for us in my History of Popular Music class, and for the life of me I can't remember the name or lines from the song.
Here's the rundown of it:
There is this old lady who has no one who cares about her, except one little boy. And the little boy brings her food [it said stew in the song... some kind of stew XD]. He leaves to the city for some reason, and many years later, the old woman is wandering through the streets [with a cart, maybe?]. She sees the boy, who is now a grown man, and who is a police officer. He treats her very poorly even after learning who she is.
It's pretty much a song about how society/police force corrupts you. It's a ballad, and it's amazing.
Anyone know it?
Do you get cravings a lot? I constantly get strong ones--particularly for sugar and protein. I was eating entire jars of peanut butter for a few days. Then it was multigrain toast with strawberry jam. Now I'm craving multigrain toast slathered in butter. I just had some. Yum.
What have your recent food cravings been?
"damn, there are a lot of white people here."
if you can't, what languages DO you know? and how well do you know them?
Will this effect me giving blood?!
Oh, do you have a last.fm account?
Username on there plz? yes, i will add you, sorry.
Did you know there is TQC last.fm group?! tqcscrobblers!!
Oh, and my feet stopped bleeding btw. I just stained my friends little carpet a bit.. she didn't notice while I was there though, it's all good.
2. Is it weird that my hair has skipped the gray stage and went straight to white? I'll see a strand go from brown, brown, brown to suddenly ghost white. Where is my silver tinsel?
3. Young people with pepper gray to silver hair; nice looking or dude, here's a box of dye?
(I don't even have a single crow's foot and yet, I have Andy Warhol white. It's weird.)
Did he hear us call him an arrogant dick?
At the end of that professor's class, a girl spilled my coffee all over me. Was this retribution for calling my teacher a dick?
Do you curse a lot? I'm starting to notice that it's getting really bad.
Will you post it so we can figure it out?
I feel like I should just close the doors, give everybody a time-out.
Does 'sex addiction' exist?
Have you ever been in an 'incestuous'friendship group?
1. Is it art? Is it gross? Is it a waste of meat/resources? Something else?
2. Pretend that artist is your friend. What meaningless things could you say about a dead cow that sound arty?
What was the last very important thing you thought you lost?
It is 3 in the morning. What should I do?
Do you hang out in your kitchen?
Have you ever participated in their "missions"?

If so, where did you do so, and how was your experience?
what do you think of quiverfull people?
Are you not sure what haircut/hairstyle works best with your face shape? do you want some suggestions to take to your hairdresser next time? would you like me to help? POST A PICTURE, and i'll take care of the rest.
ETA: Better luck next time! done @9:20pm ET.
I'm leaving in May.
When will it be appropriate to boast about it and annoy you with endless posts about Amsterdam????
Which character in the Watchmen do you think is supposed to be the hero, tragic or otherwise? Why?
My school finally blocked Pandora from the network, so now I can't get my musical fix in class. D: At least Last.Fm isn't blocked though, I guess.
what was the last thing to raise YOUR stress level???
What (non-meat stuff) could I eat or drink to help boost my energy levels? I have some work I need to do this weekend (partly because I was off sick) so the sooner my bouncy self returns, the better!
It's about 50oF in Toronto right now and the temp will climb up to 59oF. It's going to be a great day today, y/y?
Whatya having for breakfast?
What are your plans for today & this weekend?
When was the last time you did anything charitable? Why & how?
If you didn't get around to watching tv last night, what time did you finally go to bed?
So I am weird, and a loner, and I am looking forward to having the whole day to myself to do what I want.
So: Its cloudy but dry, i have about five bucks to spend, and I live in Salem Oregon. I am very easily amused.
TQC, where should I go and what should I do with my day?!?
Have you ever worked at a call center? How was it? The one I'm interviewing at calls people about fundraisers.
2)Gun permit owners?
3)For questions 1 and 2, please tell me your reasoning.
4)should I go to Panera?
I am smarter than ___% of the people on the internet.
Do you answer your own questions? I never do and I'm thinking about starting <--see, starting.
* FOUND IT. Jesus, I have the song on CD, I don't know what was wrong with me last night.
Anyone else find this a very average movie? Really liked the style, but the content fell short. The movie was really long, dragged out in too many places and the female characters made me want to puke.
(Sorry, apparently it's not out in other places yet? I'm not used to getting movies first down here in the ass-end of the world!)
The tutor and the tutee decided to change the lesson to Tuesdays, so I had to change the booking.
The tutor sent me this e-mail:
Subject: Tuesday 11.30-13.00
Body: blah blah blah moving the (lessons) from Friday to Tuesday 10.30-13.00 permanently
So I responded back:
Thank you for letting me know. It’s from 11:30, not 10:30, correct?
Then the tutor responded:
It is 2x 45 min = 2 lessions!
I'm so confused I don't even know how to respond to this. First of all, the subject of her e-mail said 11.30, yet the body of her e-mail said 10.30. Then when she responded back she claimed it WAS supposed to be 10.30 to 1, but then she also said it was only supposed to be 90 minutes, which would actually support the fact that it started at 11.30, not 10.30.
WTF does this chick mean? She is not a native English speaker but...these are numbers we're dealing with.
is there anything that could have made that movie suck less?
How often, if ever, is it misspelled and how?
How touchy are you about people misspelling your name?
If a co-worker emails you and Outlook automatically populates your full name in the To: field, then there is no excuse for that person to misspell your name in the body of the email, y/n?
What is the most exciting thing you're doing this weekend?
( Collapse )
me?? I prefer GRAY. (only because when you say the word the A, "says its name."
ETA: It's a song lyric. Plz to not be thinking I'm a creepy Twilight fanfic author.
1. marijuana (because it's no worse for you than cigs or alcohol.)
2. prostitution (it would clean up the streets, creating brothels that are clean and safe for the women. i think people should be allowed to fuck for money if they so choose.)
3. gay marriage (cuz im a homo. i don't necessarily believe in gay marriage but it should be available for those who do.)
4. bringing liquids on planes (that shit is just real annoying)
How do you get yourself out of a funk?
I've been in a bad mood for two days now & can't get out of it.
I graduated 3 years ago, and my little brother, who currently has one of my former favorite teachers for study hall or something, just told me to go visit her while I'm home next week coz she'd like to see me. She taught my sociology and anthropology classes, which were the only classes I really liked in high school, which is why I studied sociology my first 2 years of college... until I realized that I didn't really like any of those classes and switched majors. How awkward will this be?
I HAVE NO SHAME.
( Collapse )
Should I name her Dahlia? What about Denali? Ugh, I hate trying to work around already established names!
Which Lawrence brother was your favorite? Should they make a comeback?
Why can't I get motivated to do anything today?
What's the deal with it?
My BF loves it so I joined this morning. I don't really know what to do with it.
How do you decide who to follow?
Also, have you ever had a teacher who was just impossible to please? The type of person who doesn't give out As because there's always room for improvement? Can you tell me about him or her?
I have a hybrid writing class right now where the workshop is a mix of people in the course and the online part is all grouped by major. They're two different professors, and my major has the worst online professor. She grades arbitrarily and doesn't give constructive feedback in the least. She also takes several letter grades for a single syntactical error (which she won't point out), but regularly uses emoticons in her comments.
Was it good ?
How about a place from Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares ?
Was it good ?
- tell me about yourself
- do you have any questions for me?
Is there a way I can take all the songs on my ipod and move it to my computer, add the new songs and then move it back to my ipod?
I have two huge papers due next month for that class and can submit them for early review this week and I'm trying to motivate myself to start them. Should I at least make an effort to turn something in early?
I'm going on a 4 hour car ride home for a week. It's windy, and the road is very twisty. I'm fairly certain I'm going to get carsick.
What are you not looking forward to?
i posted several weeks ago about having really awful back pain... after extensive testing, we discovered 3 herniated disks and nerve damage (that is possibly reversible).
my question is this: have you experienced nerve pain/damage or herniated disks? what was your method of treatment? meds (if so, which?), physical therapy, spinal shots, or surgery? did it work? any side effects?
Will you tell me about the last time it happened?
Do you think it happens because you're so pissed off about whatever happened first, that it just starts a reaction?
What are you SUPER FUCKING FRUSTRATED about?
Can anyone who is single point me in the right direction?
For social networking sites like fbook, myspace, twitter, lj, would you rather:
use a computer?
use your phone?
use your touch screen ipod/mp3 player?
HEY LOOK I'M ADDING A QUESTION!
what key elements would your perfect film have to include? i think mine would have to include some kind of war or disaster, have really irrelevant and funny dialogue at crucial moments, star christina ricci (at least fleetingly), make me laugh and have probably be partly set in the future or an unrealistic reality. and it would probably be directed by kubrick.
I've always been fascinated with Herman Millers Eames series, but that can wait ( it's more of a WANT then a NEEDed piece).
We're thinking of getting a high back chair to cushion his poor back. Any recommendations for an excellent computer chair?
Thanks in advance tqc :D!

Yesterday I tried to access my files and instead of my folders called "videos" and "photos" it had two folders called "m" and "n". Both were empty instead of containing all my files.
What's gone wrong with my hard drive? Have I lost my videos and photos for ever? Is there any way to get them back?
Mine- an aunt told me I had tiny feet. Aside from the general oddness, I wear US size 10.
I'm cleaning my bathroom, and there is bleach involved, and I am wearing black sweatpants... I am a dummy and wiped one of my hands on my butt cheek and now I have a rust-colored handprint on my ass. hahahahhaa.
I'm so nervous about the pain (because I want to have a natural birth).....
What are some good coping mechanisms to use when you're very uncomfortable/in lots of pain?
If you've ever had a baby...how scary was it when you started going into labor? I don't want to be alone but I bet I will be.....eep!
Want to share a birth story with me?
Have you ever been in one?
What was the experience like for you?

2. How good of a wife would I be if I kicked my husband out of the house tonight so he can go see Watchmen? He's been DYING to see it, and I wouldn't mind, but we can't go together because we don't have a babysitter.
3. Who are some celebrity butterfaces? Pictures are bonus points!
She called my cellphone instead (which was off)
Does she have any excuse to be so pissed at me that she's actually breathing like an animal?
Who was the last person to piss you off? Tell me what happened!

bonus question: Do you like tanking/float trips?
Aaand, because I know there are a lot of non-meat eaters out there, another question (open not just to the non meat-eaters):
Assuming the world WILL someday know, what do you think will end up being the number for how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop?
I went to visit my nephew while his other grandma (not my mom) was babysitting him.
She started to feed him some banana and when he wasn't swallowing it, she gave him some of his bottle and then said "Don't tell your sister!" with a giggle.
So...I have to tell my sister right?
Well, Wal-Mart called me today and I have an interview on Monday! It isn't what I really wanted, but I'll take it (damn bills and whatnot).
So..any tips for an interview at Wal-Mart? Does anyone here work for them?
Edit: My bad. I was confusing socialism with socialised healthcare. Sorry about that! (It was a long day. I'm not thinking clearly)
boy or girl or both.
one of them keeps asking what other day we can hang out, because he's only in the state for like a week. i told him i work 7 days a week and only go out on friday nights. i told him i work all night saturday and all day on weekdays (i left out sunday because i get out at 4). why did he just ask me if i'm working on wednesday?

It seems to be some sort of combination bot/fiction journal, and one of the entries contains this sentence:
"Masha couldn’t take it anymore and decided to do something that not every person would go for, and that was to end her life."
That's good writing, y?
We live cross-country, so it has to be something that I can send to her. Also my mom has had a really rough time this past year with my dad losing his job if that helps any.
write story bits, write to do lists, make fun of people.
2)what is going on in dollhouse tonight?
3)why do I crave sugar, salt and fat today?

Did you have to take care of a flour baby/robot baby in middle school or high school? Were you forced to do it, or did you choose to take the class?
And if you didn't, what's the last problem you resolved?
WTF? Was that just an earthquake?

No, I only like posts that are short & interesting.
I don't want to be tacky and just hand her a twenty as a 'tip'. What kind of small gift or token should I get her?? she likes yoga and sea turtles - if that helps :/
I just had a multi-grain waffle with marshmallow fluff, peanut butter, and raw oats sprinkled all over it. IT WAS AMAZING.
Do you ever wish you didn't have either of those things for a while?
Does death scare you?
I think I'd be doing something wayy more productive..
Sometimes I want to smash my laptop. I've just about become addicted to the glowy screen I think.
No, I find the fact that anybody can die at any moment to be really exciting and oddly comforting.

If you're not an only child, did you like having a sibling when you were a kid?
A. EGG SALAD SANDWICH
B. WEIRD WHITE PEOPLE TACO (lentils & barley instead of meat/beans/rice, and weird white people salsa [PACE, lol] instead of good salsa, + cheddar and maybe some olives and lettuce [wtf, IDK, for some reason it sounds decent right now D:<])
C. CINNAMON TOAST
What weird trashy things have you been wanting lately, TQC (doesn't have to be food-related)?
I am housesitting/dogsitting right now, and the dog is a chronic remote chewer. I got here (first night) this evening, and there is a note with instructions on how to deal with the tv blahblah, and it indicates that I'm supposed to use a Sony remote. All I see is a Comcast remote. Where is the other one? Did the dog eat it?
Which do you prefer: Safari, IE, Firefox, or something else?
Should I be disturbed that the movie "The 18 Year Old Virgin" is due back to Blockbuster on Sunday, considering that I'm on an account (hence the e-mail) with my 56 year old mother and my 58 year old father?
