Ladies: Do you make an effort to buy bras and panties that match?
Those that like ladies: Do you care one way or the other if a girl is wearing matching bra and panties?
Do you have a song stuck in your head? What is it?
Usually, if I cave anything at all, it's chocolate, but today I REALLY want bacon. I don't even really like bacon, but I really fuckin' want some right now.
How many ticky boxes do you want to tick?
in other words:
Do you agree with me that my Aunt is an idiot for thinking this?
VALIDATE ME TQC, I'M TIRED & GRUMPY >:|
When was the last time you felt really good about yourself? What was the situation?
My ex left me a comment on myspace while I was out on a date with someone far more amazing. !!
I am currently totally nerdy and drunk in Northampton, Massachusetts for the 1st ever New England Webcomics Weekend. I love webcomics! I read a multitude of them. I met several artists today that I've read for years now!
1. who was your worst teacher in your educational career? what made them so bad?
mclaughlin - middle school history teacher. he was anti-everything and had a holier than thou attitude. i got kicked out of class one day for saying that gays had rights too. my mom pulled me out of his class and i ended up having history class with the school librarian instead.
2. what's really annoying you right now?
my equine science instructor promised that he would have our grades posted and the new assignment up last friday. it's been over a week and my grades aren't posted and there's no new assignment up. he never gets shit done when he says he's going to. i know he's busy and teaches quite a few classes but he does this all the time and seriously, don't tell us we have a new assignment until after you've posted it. the assignment's supposed to be due on the 27th and i really wanted to get it done over spring break so i didn't have to worry about it this coming week.
3. do you have a vanity plate on your vehicle? if you don't, what would yours say?
the vanity plate on my truck says gitrdn - yep... git er done. my mom's says icmoose. my old one was cwgrlup and hers used to be mjruns. we kind of have a fascination with vanity plates, i guess. lol
What are some of your favourite inspirational quotes?
I'm putting together a gift for a friend who is going through a really rough patch in her life.
LOL TQC UPDATE: My friend starting drama lama about my Twilight facebook status just tagged me in a note defending the shitty ass series.
Bonus points for reasons not relating to BJs.

Have you ever gotten your sleep schedule totally backwards?
Who are the weirdest celebrities you've ever been attracted to? (By weird, I mean unlike your normal pattern of attraction, or just attractions that would be considered strange by mainstream society)
Everyone I've ever liked is considered weird by mainstream society except probably Helena Bonham Carter & Kate Winslet
What's a strange movie for a kid to grow up watching that you enjoyed when you were a kid?
9 to 5, Big Business, the First Wives Club, and a taping of the Broadway musical Into the Woods. I was a strange child.
They also may have been dressed like a hare, but it's been a long time and I am very tired so I could be wrong on that part.
Why the hell am I doing this?
Do you know anyone who actually does this? (as in ..."Hey, do me a favor, don't talk to me anymore")
Am I reading too much FML?
Will you tell me the last really nice thing someone said to you?
Example: Grand Ayatollah of Rock & Rollah.
I HATE TECHNOLOGY
What do you hate?
EDIT: What's the stupidest thing you've ever failed a class/assignment for?
My art teacher in high school failed me because she refused to believe I hadn't made up narwhals. @_@ Who fails an art student for being creative? And what teacher requires a 17-YEAR-OLD to do research to prove that they aren't making up imaginary animals???
like this old back pack I use. Its ratty, but all the new stuff is just inferior
Would they be a stranger??
Granted....some of you are pretty STRANGE....
I've thrown up quite a few times in the past two weeks and been nauseous everyday. I've had really bad headaches right behind my eyes and a very small appetite. I'm also sleeping a lot more.
Besides being pregnant (which is a big NO WAY IN FUCKING HELL), what could be causing this?
I'm going to the doctor on Thursday but what do you think?
ETA: What's the fucking plural of 'hiatus'? Hiatuses? Hiati?
do you like your middle name?
if you don't have one, do you wish you did?
ETA: for those of you who think middle names ARE necessary, why?
How do you get new music? CD's? Buy from iTunes? Download illegally? What programs do you use to download them?
Someone on-line who is totally honest about thier realtionships??
Or someone who hides thier thier status?
I GOTTA KNOW.
How attached are you to your current appearance? Why or why not?
If someone wanted to change something about your physical appearance, what would be the one thing you would refuse to change?
What can I say, right now, that would deeply offend you?
Can anybody tell me what these places are like? Weather? People?
Those of you who have SEEN Angela's Ashes: it is still pretty sad and depressing, yes?
Where do you go to get your fix of sad and depressing? Favorite stories/books/something?
is your kitchen usually fully stocked or totally empty?
mine always seems to be empty. right now we have a few things but i can't MAKE anything out of them.
2)do you like travel books better if everyone has a good time or a terrible time?
3)should I feel mad that I went to class ill, and my teacher only hypnotized my classmate?
Does that make any sense? lol...
Also, breakfast: Post Selects Blueberry Morning, Post Selects Pecan Crunch, or Kashi Cinnamon Harvest w/ banana? OR another delicious brownie?
ETA: Sorry there's only one post between my last post and this one... I thought there would have been more entries in a half hour, lol =X
'cause if its after 1995 I don't know it.
And if its about a boat...a M*F* BOAT...I don't know it.
Or a GaGa whatever.
EDIT: Did you know Kurt Cobain killed himself? I just found out. Tragic.

So what are some things I can do to keep my hands and stuff busy and distracted while still being a safe driver?
How often do you download music?
Have you ever had your heart broken? If yes, have you moved past it?
I'm going back to school today (2 hour drive), and someone asked me if I can drive her back with me. I really don't want to because a) i enjoy the solitude and b) she's sort of a dick. she's paying me for gas so I can't use that as an excuse. How should I tell her I don't want to drive her without sounding like a huge asshole?
also: is there an lj icon randomizer i could use?
What would you suggest I try? My usual drink is gin and some kind of flavored soda, if that gives you a guideline as to what I like. I haven't ventured much farther than that because I hate spending so much money on one drink, but now I can go crazy!
I know its not full-blown depression yet having suffered from it for many years but this is a really important year for me academically lots of very important exams etc etc etc!!
anyway i cant decide if i should go to my doc and/or psych about going back on prozac asap?
I have only been on prozac once before(for a year) and havent been back on it since (almost 3 years) now so if anyone is a frequent on again off again user would you recommend going on it early or waiting and seeing if my situation improves or turns even more to shit???
What tags would you suggest?
If you could get paid the same amount somehow, would you rather work 40 hrs a week or be a college student with a full courseload?
Edit: Would the answer change if you had to maintain a B average in all your classes and you couldn't just take the easy ones?
A. Learn the lyrics to all their songs and sing along like all the screaming little girls there
B. Go, but not know anything about them and make fun of them
C. Not go and fall asleep at 8:30
The only way to fight off the rage and depression that this has bought about is to make new and improved lists (I reaaalllyyy like playlists).
Would you please come up with an awesome playlist title and recommend a song you'd put in in?
Titles that have been lost to the fates included things like; I'm drinking beer in the shower, is this a sugar rush?, dance naked! and other ridiculously stupid shit.
are you generally a calm or excitable person? i want to become more calm but my nature is too hyper for life.
2. Are you watching it on ABCFamily?
3. If n and n, what is your favorite really superduper cheesy movie?
(post pictures of both so we can agree/disagree?)
If you do not care about pullups and exercise, what's your favorite candy bar?
Mine: Random Drunk Guy by Point Defiance
At about 2 AM this morning you and your friends were making some serious noise outside my apartment, I opened the door and there you were. You asked if I was home alone. I lied, I just didn't know what to say. Email me if you still wanna drink some beers and hook up.
(Wow, what a catch!)
you've been dating your SO for a year. you have a no present rule. on your anniversary, your SO brings you a gift of perfume. you never wear perfume. your SO looks at you expectantly.
how do you react?
also, your SO's mother happened to give you a bottle of the same perfume for your birthday a few months ago (something your SO didn't realise), so now you have two unused bottles of this stuff.
does this change your reaction?
Did you have a date or go stag, or with a group of people?
Did you have a good time?
Will you show me a ~prom picture~?
( Collapse )
I've been really into El Sueño de Morfeo for a while, and discovered the awesome Finnish band Happoradio last night. Anybody stylistically similar to either of these would be pretty awesome.
How about guitarists? Anyone you particularly like or have been into lately? (Joe Satriani has been a favorite of mine for years.)
If you're not up for that, what music have you been really into lately? Have you ever ended up liking a genre of music you'd always thought you hate? (Opera, for me. Despised it as a kid and converted into a lover after seeing Turandot on stage.)
While we're on the topic of music, is American Idol any good this season? I was obsessed last year, but this time around I haven't been able to muster the time or care.
What are your favorite beach/vacation songs?
or hell, just anything your listening to right now that you love :]
does it take a certain person to like manga, or should i get into it? it looks so pretty on the shelves (:
should i go to spring fling, new york, or vermont on march 28th?
hows your day going?
who do you love?
Will you just tell me a little about that? How's the weather? What are other nice places to live around there? Do you like it? Just tell me anything at all!!
Make it up, but don't always put all the pillows on.
Does your bed have decorative pillows and shit, or is it just the pillows you sleep on?
Decorative pillows, that don't usually get put on tbh
Do you have any coffee table books? What's your most recent purchase?
I friggin' love them, omg, and I just bought this one. After waiting a week, it went down to 12.98!!!
Have you seen Forgetting Sarah Marshall?
Yes, one of my favorite movies
How do you feel about Russell Brand?
I am on the fence...I can't decide if he's too much or hilarious.
What is he planning to do with all those eggs TQC?
I feel like I've been hit by a fucking truck.
TQC, HAS MY PIZZA DOUGH GONE BAD?
ETA: There are no egg or dairy ingredients in the dough! It contains: unbleached wheat flour, whole wheat flour, filtered water, canola olive oil blend, sea and fresh yeast.
Who is your favorite author? Or name a few favorites if you can't pick just one.
Its probably about a week and a half before my period and I'm having the worst cramps. Sigh. Usually I get them during my period and only a little before.
1. Do you have bad cramps?
2. Do you get worse ones before or during your period?
3. Besides three Ibuprofen, what will help me feel better? (Chocolate is already on its way in the form or a Cadbury Creme Egg.)
Syracuse all the way! I hope this hasn't already been asked.
What product did you use?
Did you like it?
My favorite roommate is moving out and I'm terrified that I'm going to get another horrible roommate; like the one that stole $4000, the one that made her cat watch her have sex, the one that moved her brother and her boyfriend in w/o telling us, the one that moved out w/o telling us, or the other one I have now that throws three-day-long parties with her underage friends and I have to find somewhere to go until they clear out because she always 'forgets' to tell us.
In this hypothetical scenario, the person who's pregnant is definitely having the baby.
ETA: I have a very good friend whose father cheated on his mother and got the woman pregnant. The woman had the baby and my friend's mother stayed married to my friend's dad. The kid and my friend are both around 25 years of age now and hang out with my friend's dad all the time (go to soccer games, play basketball etc). My friend has some questionable views on fidelity (hence why he is just my friend). Do you think his family history is a big reason for this? This may be a dumb question but I'm curious about other people's opinions.
I had an ectopic pregnancy in 2004 and got a small, simple angel on the inside of my left wrist to honor my baby. I had a miscarriage in October of last year and want something to honor that baby. Part of me wants to get an angel on my right wrist, but I'm not sure... if I have another pregnancy loss, I'll have run out of wrists... I don't want to wrap around or anything. Maybe another angel on my left wrist, under the first one... I'm thinking my wrist will start to look like the cell walls of an imprisoned serial killer. Maybe something else altogether?
I'm trying to get suggestions from everyone. Please help, tqc?
ETA: thanks for your condolences!
Mine was being breastfed by my mother in our loungeroom. I don't know how old I was, but presumably I was quite young.
Have you ever 'forgotten' a period of time? Like not just forgotten to get milk from the shops or anything, but lost a period of time that you have no recollection of? Why/how? Did you ever find out what you missed?*
Aside from portions of random nights being erased due to extreme drunkeness; the biggest period of time I can think of was when I got a concussion in primary school. I don't remember how it happened (I think it had to do with me playing on a big concrete clown in our schoolyard), I don't remember who I told about it, and I don't remember my parents coming to get me and taking me to the hospital, where I spent the night. I do remember, however, that the clown was removed shortly after this happened.
*This entire question is very awkwardly phrased, sorry.
How did it make you feel?
Does anyone know how to do this?
It's a running podcast where you add your own music by overlapping the podcast over the music.
How do you position them to make five rows of three dogs?
Salt potatoes originated in Syracuse, NY and are locally famous.
Does singing Katy Perry's Hot and Cold make a man gay? I dunno because I was singing it at work while it was on the radio, and I am a guy. I need to know TQC! Non-srs answers only plz.
What did you do today?
What's bothering you today?
What are your favorite euphamisms? Or if you don't have favorites, which ones do you use the most? How old are you and where are you from?

YES THIS IS MY HOMEWORK but I've been looking it up everywhere for the past 45 minutes. You're my last hope TQC :(
I think i found something I can use or at least twist to work for this paper. THANK YOU.
Is it safe to take a bath with/without salts to help heal the site? Tear + stitches happened 9 days ago.
Guys, how much attention do you pay to a girls' panties when you're messing around?
Girls, how much attention do you pay to panties when purchasing them?
ETA: Sorry about the post about my former co-worker---that was meant for my regular journal.
FOR THE SAKE OF ARGUMENT, YOU ONLY CHILDREN HAVE SIBLINGS.
My friend told me about something she saw on the news about two guys who got all fucked up on some drug and then beat a girl almost to death and forced her to dig her own grave. Does anyone know if this is even real? Or where I could read about it for myself? I don't want to believe it but I'm having nightmares tonight either way, so I might as well know the truth.
If you don't know, what was the last thing you heard/found out that scared the shit out of you?
How many of you've gotten entangled with melvin? Did he ban you?
Or if you have no idea what I'm talking about/if you don't give a crap, have you ever been banhammered from a community for an exceedingly stupid reason? What was it?
-Life skills, ya know.
Will you tell us about them or your favorite birthday?
I want to download a movie. Any good ones?
If the latter, against whom is the biggest one you are currently holding? Why?
I hold grudges, omfg do I hold grudges. I don't think I could "forgive and forget" if I wanted to.
Two of my former roommates/close friends. They're conniving, lying backstabbers and in a nutshell they made my last year at my former university pretty much miserable.
I made some mac n' cheese a little while ago with milk that had apparently gone bad (I didn't realize this until after I'd eaten some of it), and now my head hurts and I feel like I'm gonna puke. Am I going to die? y/n
If so, what is it?
(Mine is Haruko - in Japanese it means "Spring born child" and since I got my new (Japanese) car on the first day of spring, it fits!)
Do you prefer short stories or novels?
can you point me in the direction of some really scary shit? other than creepypastas. ty!
2: Are there any movies that you're too afraid to watch ever, regardless of the time of day?
3: When you have gas but you don't have Gas-X, Beano or whatever, what do you do?
4: When you're making out with someone and someone else walks into the room, do you continue to make out in front of them or will you stop and wait until they leave?
When was the last time you were off-put by something?
AM I :
A) turning into a real life Antagone?
B) fucking dying?
If you chose A, what should I steal from ... TOWN... first?
If you chose B, would you say something nice at my TQC funeral?
PS - Since it'll be brought up again, I take Benadryl almost daily to help me sleep and it never makes me feel super drunk.
What is your favorite piece of jewelry you own (excluding rings--I already have a nice one & I'm not really looking to get answers about engagement/wedding rings here)?
Will you tell me where you got it/what the story behind it is, if there is one?
Also, what is your favorite drink from a mix?
Mine would have to be those faux apple cider packets. I'm drinking one right now :)
ETA: Okay, awesome ring stories are totally allowed now. There's some good ones being posted & I realize I probably shouldn't have made that stipulation.
2. what films have you seen that you found moving?
3. do you know anyone who's had an abortion? how do you feel towards them?
4. flirting: how do you / do you do it?
5. you have £5 ($10) to spend on sweets/chocolate only, right now. what do you choose? why?
I wasn't going to mention mine because I didn't want to be depressing, but CLEARLY TQC is not a place for happy people. :p
My last significant relationship. We were always best friends, but we got closer because she started to come to me more about her boyfriend problems. Basically, he beat the shit out of her emotionally and called her fat. She came to me, and we rekindled whatever romantic feelings we had for each other, and she cheated on him with me. Months later, they broke up, and we were moving in together in college. I was like, SWEET, now we'll be together! Only we weren't. About a month later, she found someone else, and I got more and more depressed, sought counseling, tried to kill myself, and then just dropped out of the college altogether because I'd realized that, for the last two years, I was only going there because of her; I hated the college and everyone in there.
So, naturally, I avoided him for the rest of the shift. What was he going to ask me?
serious/non-serious answers welcome, have some fun :)
So guys, if you are a student and feed yourself, or have a friend/significant other/whatever who does, what the shit am I meant to feed this motherfucker?
Recipes, tricks for making him eat even marginally more healthy stuff, ANYTHING would be super appreciated.
He doesn't like instant noodles or seafood, and flatly refuses to cook anything beyond heating it up or microwaving. Probably won't eat vegetables just as is. Not much of a fruit fan. He's useless. I was thinking maybe just making huge amounts of pasta and sauce and freezing it, but that gets boring pretty fast. Also nothing too complex recipe-wise please, I suck pretty hardcore in the kitchen, but I am very enthusiastic.
Alternatively, have you ever been mugged? Did you get robbed or beaten up or both? Was it traumatizing or just shitty? I've never even been threateningly approached by a stranger, let alone attacked. I must look either intimidating or really, really poor.
If you're going on a trip - do you make a packing list? Does it depend on what kind of trip you're going on (camping, vacation, business, etc.)?
I rodeo every weekend and I have three seperate packing lists - my suitcase, the horse trailer, the truck. It's the same list every weekend and I keep it in a plastic sleeve and use dry-erase markers on it.
How far in advance do you pack?
My mom's making fun of me because I packed my clothes for this coming weekend's rodeo already. My logic is that we're leaving Thursday evening after classes and I have practice til ten on Monday and Wednesday and class til nine-thirty on Tuesday. I don't really want to stress about packing my clothes during the week.
I have to pull another all-nighter tonight (I pulled one last night...) - my roommate doesn't have a vehicle and I have to pick him up from work at 230 am. Unfortunately, I have class at 8 am tomorrow morning and I know I'll oversleep if I try to nap now or even after I pick him up. What should I do to keep myself awake all night/morning??
How many pairs of shoes do you own? Can I see a picture of your favorite pair?

Let's say you were driving around one day and happened to see a close friend's mother/brother/father/sister driving on the same road. You end up behind them and notice they're driving rather erratically and weaving all over the road. You tell your friend and they kind of laugh it off.
Bring it up again or let it go?
Who's the hottest guy alive?
EDIT: & what would make you feel less this way, if you feel it at the moment?
I pick Adore by The Smashing Pumpkins.
I am planning on going to South America in May/June. I went to a travel agent Friday and she was going to muddle through my preferred itinerary to try and figure out the best flights for me (I am new to all this...)
My problem is that I have a 10% discount voucher for a tour company I want to go with, and would like to book date NOW as it expires today.
Is it a totally bad idea to book a tour before I've even got flights?? The travel agent looked dubious the whole time I was with her on Friday because it's peak season etc and it is quite close to my departure date.
Should I book, and use the discount? Or wait, and pay full price? Suggestions?
(that is; remixing a song out of clips - I have a youtube video in mind)
Using free software on a PC.
I have been looking on google but I dont have the first clue and I don't want to download something that I don't need.
I had a Bitty Baby named Wendy, and Wendy went where I did until I was about eight or so. I still have her, too: she's sitting on my ottoman right now.
OMG do you guys remember pogs?!
So therefore, are there any members anywhere in the fine country of Wales, or anywhere vaguely nearby, that can help me out by giving me a floor/couch on which to stay?
There are several lj users that have met me irl that can vouch for me being really a really rather nice person, including the wonderful japeningrish, who advised me to check here.
And what this means if someone can do this for me, is that I can keep going further and raising more money for Amnesty International, who I'm supporting!
Also, a few days on you'll see the whole thing posted on adayinmylife, so if you watch that community, that will be me. :)
Much love, TQC!
