What should I do?
2. Male or female?
3. Are you afraid of commitment, specifically in a romantic relationship?
4. Why do you think you are/aren't?
Will you read me a bedtime story?
When was the last time you had a date with a new person?
How'd it go? What did you do?
1. What was the last thing (or things) you got in the mail?
title for my car
card from my mom w/ $25 check inside & a comic she cut out from the paper,
a coupon from a nearby pizza place for bogo
a piece of junk mail from AT&T
credit card statement from old navy
2. Can you show me fashion blogs/sites/online stores/etc to get me excited for summer?
3. If you have twitter, can I add you (and vice versa)?
My twitter name is: poisonousxkiss
(stupid name came from my stupid myspace name when i was 16).
4. If you are graduating this spring (from college, highschool, whatever) what are your plans for after graduation?
Aliens have landed. You are chosen as a representative of Earth. As one, you are told to pick one thing extraordinary and one thing ordinary to show the aliens as an example of the best things this planet and its people have to offer. What do you choose?
2. What's something you would love wear but don't think you can pull off the look?
3. Have you ever played double dutch?
In the game, where you always the jumper or the rope turner?
(I could never get the jumping right but I was a perfect rope turner.)
Im not sure I have the guts...but if I find I do, I still have a boyfriend. Should this veto the idea? Obviously Ill talk to my so about it but I was wondering the outsiders perspective
With that being said, I have a turquoise nano & a laptop (HP) that I'd love to name.
Just for some background, I love literature, films, the color turquoise, animal print, all genres of music (except for country), and I am a 20 year old college student.
What are you more inclined to do with your monkey?
Do any of you have this problem?
What do you do to get yourself to sleep?
What do you do to keep yourself awake the next day?
Do you wear pjs?
If so, what type?
(most awkwardly phrased question ever.)
My car. It's a brown honda accord. It's name is "Brown Squirrel".
My laptop is an old white ibook and it's just "Baby".
I have a huge body pillow sized alligator named Patty.
My teddy bear from build-a-bear is named P.J. (Paul Jude)
who is the last person you talked to on the phone? what did you talk about?
Have you ever found any good way to deal with it? Either by inspiring yourself or removing the drive to create something?
2. I have a really, really heavy workload at work right now. I also have a take-home midterm due Wednesday, which I've barely started. It shouldn't really take TOO long, but I NEED time to focus on it while I'm awake and energetic and not so drained by work that I can't think. Is there a good way to explain this to my boss that won't make me look like a slacker for begging out of work I don't have time to do and no one else CAN do?
3. How do you relax when both home and work are overloading you and you feel like you're spiraling towards burnout?
I dreamed koffie_addict and FREAKS and I were running a hostel in Amsterdam.
I guess it means I'm spending WAY too much time on-line.
is this a possibility? srs answers pls; I'm kinda freaked out.
when is the last time you had an unexplained condition/illness? what did you do about it?
I was looking up online, but it was just kits that were sold online and I kind of need one soon.
for example, I was always rollerblading and my brother was always playing basketball or other sports.
Are you one?
Also, some guy just walked into Starbucks wearing a stark white polo shirt with a popped collar, loud plaid shorts, and a matching plaid hat. Would you automatically consider this guy a douchebag like I did?
Where did you go to college?
TQC, when was the last time you bought something and it just didn't work like it should have?
Why did you love it so much?
Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
Can you post the picture?
thanks, eefvangerven (L)
Can you post pics or links to your favourite web comics?
2) Do you find it easier to speak your second language with native speakers or with other second-language speakers?
3) Could you tell me a phrase which would never translate literally, because it would come off as rude or oddly phrased? (e.g. English: "Do you have a question?" vs español: "¡Dime!")
i'm in an office DOWNTOWN (shit plumbing) and i have my own bathroom (like a boss) because the only other people who come in here have penises. there's no garbage can in my washroom
THE WINDOWS DON'T OPEN, TRY HARDER.
Would you ever take a class like that? What if it was a class you really wanted to take?
EDIT: I will not be receiving any credit for it =[
The damn thing won't even turn on. It makes those good noises when I press the power button, the cd/dvd drive does it's thing and then.... nothing. Not a peep. Black screen, faint crunchy noises. Is fucked, no?
More importantly, what do I do about the beer?
I should be finding out what I need to study for my French exam tomorrow. Hmmm.
It's supposed to be a Jack Russell Terrier x something else (a chihuahua maybe? Something that made me go "lolwut" when my mom first told me), and it's ~5 months old and female.
WHAT SHOULD WE NAME THE PUPPY? I want to suggest Misha or Olya, but I don't think my mom will go for it :(
And: your pet(s) names(s) are _______?
I have a roommate so I don't want to leave poop in the toilet.
I could drive somewhere, but I have not showered, brushed my teeth, or anything (no water duh!)
I'm also very hungry, but I'm scared if I eat the need to shit will become too unbearable.
I called the office and they think it might be on in about an hour, but that's what they always say and it usually takes a few hours.
What should I do? What would you do?
srs & nonsrs answers pls.
ETA: I totally didn't factor in that February is a short month. HORRAY FOR TQC.
2) What do YOU need to buy soon?
how about at work, in the office? (hypothetically, if you don't work in an office environment)
TQC, will you write my friend a special birthday poem, please?
Will you at least come up with an interesting line for it?
Who gives the best SEX advice???
Looks like DAD ain't gettin no LOVE....if ya know what I mean.
What makes you feel better when you're down?
Can I get some humorous GIFs or JPEGS? I need a pick me up.

What is your favorite candy bar?
2)What do you like to drink when you're sick? I'm partial to Maker's Mark.
what color should i dye a chunk of my bangs (i have medium brown hair)?
There's an opportunity for me to work overseas (in Canada) from 4-12 months. I can either pay for all the costs by myself up front or get finance (which is what I'll need to do).
I have told them I'm interested in going in May, but because this'll be the first time I've ever left Australia I'm nervous about actually sitting down and doing all the paperwork, including visa & passport applications. I haven't spoken to any of my friends/family about this, and I'll be going alone.
Should I just put on my big girl panties and do this, as it'll be an amazing opportunity?
Have you ever gotten a job overseas?
Would you like to work in other countries?
and here is the problem; im a very happy person, and he is usually pissed off, sad, or mad! and latley we have been going at it for awhile but the question is:
would you stay with someone who is constantly pissed off and in a bad mood(even though you love them alot) and your arent sure that it would work out? would you just end it now, or later?
or it would also help if you could give me advice to! :)
Just to give you an idea of what I'm used to, here is the train map (the underground only has two lines) of the city I currently live in:
So the London one looks like utter chaos to me...seriously, how am I supposed to sort it out? I know I can plug in my destinations online but if I don't have access to the Internet how am I supposed to decipher the damned thing? Unless I want to spend several hours trying to find where I am and where I want to go, because I have absolutely no frame of reference.
What did you bet?
I don't want to take something that will make drowsy so do any of you recommend any type of allergy medications that work without making you too sleepy? what do you all like taking?
- Kid A "Morning Bell" or Amnesiac "Morning Bell"
- crunchy Cheetos or puffy Cheetos
- crushed ice or ice cubes
- pulp or no pulp in orange juice
- movie theater popcorn or microwave popcorn
Question: Do I write back and say "Thank you so much, I'm looking forward to meeting you." blah blah blah as a confirmation that I got her confirmation email or do I just leave it alone and not write back?
EDIT TO ADD: Is this ok?
Thank you so much. I'm so excited to have been given the opportunity to possibly be involved with such a fantastic organization. I look forward to meeting with you on Wednesday.
What vocational services would you expect this sort of establishment?
I'd like some volunteers, too... mayhap we'll need assistance with the "etiquette" that's required--some of our newer members are untrained.
Is anyone here a Geisha?
For those of you who have a dishwasher (as in the machine, not a person) in your house/apartment/whatever you live in, how often do you run it? How many people live in your household?
And what kind of decorations do you have on the walls of your room (if any)?
...have people think that you were ___
...spend a week in ______
..would you rather..._____
...sit next to _____ on a 6-hour flight
...get to third base with _____
pcthirtyone and I will be in Dallas for A-Kon (nerrrrrrds) the last weekend of May. Who wants to hang out with us?
If you don't care, do you like pineapple soda? I do.
What kind of lotion do you guys use? I really like the Gold Bond Ultimate Healing stuff.
2. I am the Keymaster. Are you the Gatekeeper?
3. Isn't it romantic?
We're leaving So. IL. around 6:00 am and we'll get to Memphis about 9:30-10:00 am. The concert isn't until 7:30 pm.
So...what should we do between 10:00 am and oh...5-6 pm? We're also staying overnight, so we'll have the next day to do stuff too.
b) Anyone else find it cute that my boyfriend started saying pi 3.1415... when my voicemail asked to leave a number?
c) Has anyone ever been a date to a wedding before, and if so what was your experience like? I was asked for this summer and not excited since I've never been a plus one to a wedding before.
d) Anyone have good ideas for what I should do on my day off tomorrow besides sleeping in?
Thanks bunches :)
EDIT: I meant washer, not dryer!
If you could live in any country in the world (pretend that your family could live there too if you wanted, or whoever else you wouldn't like to leave behind) where would you live?
What job would you love to be doing but know you likely never will? (whether because you're not good enough at it, or you're unqualified, or it's unrealistic, whatever)
If so, what is it?
How old are you?
Is your computer on your desk?
If so, what's the favorite thing you have on your desk(besides your computer)?
Will you post a picture to show us?
I also had a dream that when my daughters (18 &12 )and I were in Amsterdam. They went by train to Newschwanstein Castle and then by air back to Amsterdam while I went to Maastricht.
This sounds like a do-able plan, right? I mean I'm not too crazy about going to this crazy dude's castle.
What type of flow do you prefer? (assuming the total amount of flow is the same)
Guys might as well just pick the third option.
What's the worst that could happen?
What is your cure for cramps?
I checked and it says the phone is connected.
Any ideas how I can fix this?
It seems to me it just makes them unhappy and does absolutely no good.
I know a girl that is adamently against wearing green on St Patrick's Day because we should be wearing blue (wiki article)
Do you know anyone with a stupid cause or anything like this?
Dan in Real Life, which was much sweeter and wittier and well-written than I had expected. The previews did it absolutely no justice.
When do you like to have sex?
It was released somewhere between 1986-1992.
It was a war film, set in either WWI or WWII.
More specifically, set in some European country.
The film opened with an air raid siren going off.
That's all I remember :(
What was that one?
BUT NOW THEY'RE ALL DELETED, I DELETED THEM.
Will you fill my inbox again, TQC?
What about your bookshelf/bookshelves? (Picture?)
What is the last movie you watched?
What book(s) are you currently reading?
How do I tell my parents I'm moving in with my boyfriend (like next weekend)? It's generally an awkward thing to bring up with them, so I was going to write an e-mail but felt that was shitty so I didn't send it. Ideas? Cake?
( Collapse )
who was your faveourite 70s show character.

If not, what's the last item of clothing you bought?
( Collapse )
What was your worst experience at a restaurant?
this is like my 3rd steak in the last 24 hours. i have never been a steak fan before, but now i am like, a mad woman if i don't get my steak.
plz halp. srs answers plz.
A) People tend to say how they really feel? (they just let things out without thinking)
B) People say things they don't mean at all and they just get angry and say stupid things?
Any comments and your own "stories" would really be appreciated!
if you don't know/care: what do you do when you're hungry but nothing looks appetizing? i'm going grocery shopping on wednesday if no one else does before then, so going to the store to buy food isn't really an option.
If you stick your finger in your belly button, does it gross you out?
Do you clean your belly button?
Do you say "belly button" or "navel"?
eta: forgot a question mark. the things you may have done!

What are some good books for learning to draw, especially drawing figures and simple stuff?
EDIT: Like, I don't even know figure/gesture drawing and plotting. I just want to have a good point to practice, rather than scribbling randomly.
I don't want to learn to draw well, not even crappy, just crappy enough. It should be enough to convey the concepts and ideas I have in my head so that people can easily understand what's going on, even if it's not good.
If an independent Amazon.com seller shipped an item within the U.S. on March 2nd, is it reasonable to have it arrive later than today (the 16th)?
Everything else I ordered at the same time arrived within the first week.
I used this shipping option: "Standard U.S.: 4 to 14 business days after shipping (may take up to 21 business days)"
The "21 business days" thing seems just like a liability statement, especially when the slowest shipping option at places like UPS (UPS ground specifically) averages only 5 business days.
In their email, they did tell me when they shipped it, but didn't tell me the tracking number even though I asked for it. Innocent oversight or something fishy y/n? They have a near 100% rating, but most people rating her say that it arrived quickly.
EDIT OK, I feel so utterly stupid, but the RSVP card says M__________. Does that mean I need to write Miss/Ms. or whatever?
( Collapse )
I decided she wasn't a "Misha", but rather a "Chloe." Mom picked "Trixie", dad picked "Stella", and I didn't find out what my brother and sister picked before I left for work.
We're going to pick 1 out of the 5 names out of a hat. This is a dumb way to name a dog, y/n?
Please come up with names for 9-20, creativity is worth extra points.
What are those numerical names called, anyway? Are they latin based?
We're told it starts with a basic band of cast iron around his neck, like a chain gang manacle without the chain. There are four bars attached to the outside of the band, at right angles to each other. Each bar is about a foot and a half long, so the whole thing is just over three feet (one meter) around. At the end of each bar is a double hook, kind of like a mirrored J. The inquisitor guy pushes the protagonist around, tips his wooden chair around so the hooks get stuck in it, spins this massive thing around on his neck, and generally fucks his shit up.
I've been fumbling around on Google but I can't figure out what it is. What is this thing? Did it exist before this book?
I don't like the way the seat is shaped, I always feel like I'm going to fall in.
Edit: I'm kind of obsessed with analyzing everything.
I just want to say that I like the song "You're So Vain" because it's actually about the singer being vain, not the person who's being sung about. I mean she's paying attention to this guy so closely she knows every single thing he's up to in his life, and then she expects him to care so much that she's written a stupid song about him? That's vanity! I R so clever.
EDIT: What I meant was, who is a TQCer that lives in oregon?
Where can I get the best french fries?
I live in North Carolina.
*Important information: I hate Old Bay seasoning.
Does it matter who you're talking to? Whether the bathroom is private or public?
