Oooooo

Who here has any ridiculously large novelty items that you feel a strange attachment to?

I have a cup. Its big.

If you don't have any large novelties, then what is the most awesome oversized novelty item that you can think of?

I think I've asked something similar to this...but hey, screw it.

Did any of you attend Villanova University? What was your major? How'd that go?

Or... does anyone know anything about Villanova as a college? Is it good? Would going there majoring in English/Theater be a good idea? I've read up on a few things and I found that Villanova is very popular for its Business/Law/Engineering, but... not so much English.

Halp. o.o;

Do you have any other college suggestions for me as an English/Theater major? :D In the United States, pls. What are the top ranked colleges for English majors? o.o

Hokay.

Tomorrow I am flying from the US to the UK. I want to bring a 24 oz can of Bud Lite to the person I am visiting.

If I put it in my checked bag, will the can burst? (I am keeping in my that the bag area of the plane is not pressurized.)

If I put it in my carry on, I am worried that they will ID me (I am 20), but I think it's mildly unlikely.
The other thing about putting it in my carry on is the fact that it is 24oz worth of liquid and airlines are super strict. Will it matter even if it is unopened?

Last question. Can you mail beer?

If that does not excite you, which eye color do you consider to be the sexiest? the ugliest? if you could have any fantasy eye color (gold, purple, etc) - which would it be?

do you prefer when people post their answers to their questions when they write them on TQC, or not?

ETA: how is it that more people are leaving in/taking out their contacts than are actually WEARING them?

Can't Sleep

I've been a lifelong insomniac. Even before that, probably, because my mom said when she was pregnant with me I would kick like crazy from 11p to morning, and then settle down after that. But by night I'd be rarin' to go. I'd fight sleep every night and shake the bars of my crib until I konked out.

I've taken Ambien and all the OTC sleep meds. Sometimes they work, other times they don't.

My husband can zonk out within 10 minutes of hitting the pillow. Meanwhile I'm up on the 'puter for hours.

Sorry if I'm rambling 'cause HEY MY MIND IS CABBAGE from not sleeping.

So, TQC, how can a girl get some damn sleep around here?

Does your dream self have a memory?

By which I mean, in your dreams do you remember things from previous dreams? Like, clothes you owned in a previous dream, or a place you visited but that doesn't exist in real life, etc.

Mine does. I find it fascinating and rather wonderful.

In my nightmares, if I have to kill somebody to protect myself, I always stab them in the eye with a long knife because I think that the eye would be soft and easy to stab through, and would go straight into the brain and kill them...but it doesn't work, so I have to stab the other eye...but that doesn't work either so I eventually go for the temple and then run away uncertain if they are even dead.

Um anyway...

1. Do you have a recurring method of self defense in your dreams? What is it?

2. Have you ever killed anyone in your dreams?

3. When/what was your last nightmare?

4. Would stabbing someone in the eye really be a good idea? Would it be easy to do? Effective?

So I've missed a LOT of school this year - as in, I've been absent 18 days (and today is the 19th, woohoo...) I just can't stand any of my classes, and I hate it. Buuut.... I still have straight A's in all my classes. Considering I still get good grades, and colleges don't care about attendance (right?), do my absences really matter in the long run? I always make up my work and keep up with the class.

EDIT: I forgot to mention, I'm still in high school. I mean, when colleges are choosing who to accept into their college, do they look at your attendance during high school? I'm in sophomore year.

Would you tell us you first flat tire story, if you have one?  How did it happen?  Who were you with?  How did you handle it?

And I mean car tires, btw.

Also, what's the best kind of potato chip?



I was coming back from an interview at the Cordon Bleu in Hollywood last December when I took a wrong turn trying to get back to the freeway.  I did some maneuvering and ended up near Macarthur Park - where I promptly drove into a major pothole I didn't see until it was too late to avoid it.  The impact was kind of horrible, and my car was listing badly to the right afterwards, so I pulled into a sidestreet - where two cops were busy handcuffing some guy - as soon as I could to check the damage, and yeah: my front right tire was basically pulverised.  I was so tired/stressed out that I went back into the car and cried for a good five minutes because it hadn't occurred to me yet that I was a AAA member and thought I would have to change the tire on my own, which I (stupidly) hadn't learned to do yet, let alone without help.  But then I remembered and called the Auto Club and they sent out a guy pretty quickly and all was well.

books and blankets

Hello, TQC. Do you like books?

Have you read House of Leaves? I finished it on a plane last night.

The other tab I have open in my firefox browser is Amazon, and I'm looking for some new books as I've devoured all the ones I currently own. Aside from beginning on House again, I'm looking for some other ideas. What say you?

Unrelated: Do you like your bed? It's generally assumed somebody will be more comfortable and sleep better in their own bed, but last night I realized that I truly love my bed. It's not a fancy bed by any means, and it's really not special, but after spending evenings on a nice but unfamiliar bed, I truly appreciate how much I love mine. Are you more comfortable in yours than others, or do you not really care too much?

I enjoy the feeling of being surrounded by tons of blankets and being wrapped up like a taco. In fact, it's the only way I'll sleep. Sheets don't count. I need a proper blanket or I'm not sleeping for a few hours.

Do any of you have weird quirks about beds/sleeping/blankets/whatever?

I have a shoot coming up this Saturday for my choir director. I'm willing to do it for free, but I would like to have some business cards that he can spread around for me. He works for State Farm and probably knows many people.

Do you cook?
If you moved to a different country all alone, and this country had all different foods and shops, would you survive?

Whats the best meal you have ever made?


I live on my own so its kinda bad that I cant cook. I can make about 4 different meals and mix them up a bit. I'll get all the nutrition I need from them, and I'm not sick of them. But if I had to cook for someone else I would fail misurably. Also, I dont know how to use seaonings - including salt. I never use salt.

Apparently I CAN cook and I just have a warped deffinition of what 'cooking' actually is...

I'm trying to record a podcast for one of my classes but my mic isn't working. Every time I record something all I get is static. I've tried blowing into it, putting it against my laptop's speakers while music plays, even held my phone to the mic while it rings on full volume. Each time I get nothing but static. Why isn't the mic recording anything? The headset is working (I'm listening to music through the headphones) and I'm pretty sure the sound recording program I'm using (Free Sound Recorder 7.3.1) is working fine too. The mic is on, the volume is up all the way, and the volume on the recording program is up all the way. What's wrong with my mic and how can I get it to work?

How long did it take you to get certified?

Any extra advice?

Thanks in advance!

I want to share it, but cannot.

So I recently mysteriously re-caught crabs.
My doctor's appointment isn't until Thursday.


In spite of the fact that I've already been in a relationship, I've begun dating someone else (their best friend, no less), and we're already planning many romantic outings for the end of the week. However, I did not catch the crabs from this person - I only noticed it roughly a week ago- and we only barely began getting "hot and heavy" after, although not to the point where either or our clothes came off. But they did feel up my leg for hours on end, even practically reaching in VERY close proximity to my crab-filled pubes before I shaved them off. And of course, jacked me off (sorry if this is TMI).

I don't want to tell them and jeopardize my romance!
But I also do not want to make out with them after getting ridding of crabs, if they caught it from me and I will get it back.
But they may think I'm sleazy and a slut, especially seeing as we met via me dating their best friend who I'm still "allegedly" in a relationship with!

Do I tell them I have crabs or do I not? And what would perhaps be the best way of letting them know?

I need your help, TQC!

I work as shop manager at a tattoo parlor here in lovely Charlotte, NC. After checking customers in, filling out paperwork and assisting to jewelry, I often find myself with copious amounts of free time ( I work 10 to 12 hour days) . I've checked out a few communities like this one, too_much_info, wtf_inc and the like but they are getting boring.

What can I do to amuse myself in these long bouts between dealing with idiots that don't know anything about tattoos?

Books, crochet, crafts, games, I just don't know! Television and movies aren't really a good idea because I'm usually interrupted every five minutes or so to answer a question or get the telephone.

Trust me, I've timed her. How can I Politely tell her to please be quiet? I don't want to hurt her feelings, but it gets really frustrating having to pretend to be interested in her ramblings.

Do you have that "one-upper" friend/acquaintance/relative?

(You know, the one who always has a story that's more happy/sad/tragic/funny/etc than the one you just told? If you just got dumped, well, they got dumped ... on their birthday ... after the ex ran over their dog ... and they found out they have an incurable disease ... and they broke a nail/their football team lost a game.)

If so, how do you deal with these people? Preferably without burning any bridges.

Unfortunately for me, this person is my mother. If I say I had a long day at work, I get a twenty minute diatribe about how much worse her day is. If my boyfriend does something sweet for me, hers did something that was just OMG SO ROMANTIC AND I MUST TELL YOU ABOUT IT RIGHT NOW. If my kids act like hooligans, it's a twofer - me and my siblings were always MUCH WORSE, and furthermore, she was MUCH BETTER at parenting than me. I'd like to just, I dunno, never talk to her again, but we live in the same town, so this is sort of difficult.

tqc,

i recently got a few goldfish with my roommates. i've never had pet fish before and know next to nothing about caring for them. i feed them once a day, change their water whenever it's needed, and uh, that's about it.

i noticed today that Big Orange's tail/spine is somewhat bent. i don't know if this is new or if i had just never noticed it before. he's also swimming somewhat crookedly. what's wrong with him? also, i've changed the water about three times in the past six hours, but the fish are still swimming near the top (i'm assuming this is because the water doesn't have enough oxygen). usually the water only needs to be changed about once a day and they'll be fine. what do i do?

Also, it would be easy for a boss to find out their employee is interviewing with similar company because at least one person from each paper inter-mingles with others in the other papers.

Harvard Economics senior lecturer Jeffrey A. Miron, in a CNN commentary, said, It is impossible to reconcile respect for individual liberty with drug prohibition. The U.S. has been at the forefront of this puritanical policy for almost a century, with disastrous consequences at home and abroad.

What do you think goes on at Area 51?

my guess is boring shit, like the testing of advanced military weapons along. BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT!

So here I am, toying with various super cool ideas. I am sick of all the government secrecy bullsh!t and decided that it's time to make a point. Our government is built to be run by the people, for the people. Area 51 will be the first of many places us, the owners, will visit. I am devising a plan to get hundreds of people together, armed with various supplies (camcorders, bolt cutters, rope, etc), and together we are going to walk our way into area 51. We will not be stopped. We will cut, climb, dig our way into the place. If we are shot (and for what? for trespassing on gov't land? lets not forget that WE own the government), it will only cause further uprising. Who's with me!?!

(you gotta admit, it'd be pretty cool)

1. Have you tried Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot or other types of hot pot?

2. If yes, did you enjoy the experience?

3. Would you say that you are culinarily adventurous?
YES, I will eat anything. I'm a trash compactor.

4. Did your family cook a variety of foods when you were younger?
Yes. I feel sorry for people who list potato as their favorite vegetable and I cringe at the though of eating a peanut butter sandwich every day or week.

Do you ever think about / talk about livejournal in real life ?

Do you think there are more males or females on livejournal ? Why is that ?

I was in Starbucks one day and accidentally ordered the wrong drink and the barista remade it for me and gave me the other one for free. Then he went  to the restaurant next door to get a cup holder even though I said I could have done it. I tipped them because I was like "I don't want to end up being talked about on baristas  or customers_suck

What is the last word that you taught someone?
If different, what is the last word that you defined for a native English speaker?

Today I explained what "grovel" meant to a foreigner, and the other day a person who does not frequent Starbucks asked me "what is that word you keep saying?" when I was talking about a barista, so I defined it.
Nick motherfucking PEACE fucker!

The light switch in the bathroom in the hall downstairs glows orange when it is turned off -- obviously, so you can find it in the dark.

It has done this, to the best of my knowledge, for the entirety of my 25 years of life, and did so before we moved here. It also only does it at night. It's the most high-tech early-80's device I touch every day.

When will it burn out? More importantly, would it be ill-advised for me to take it apart to see what is making it glow and whether I can steal the timer and/or lighting mechanism for my electronics tinkering project?

Girls:

If someone called you trailer trash and your significant other decided to beat them up (even after you told them it wasn't a huge deal) resulting in him giving the guy two black eyes, a broken nose, a messed up jaw, 6 stitches and a mild concussion...what would you think?

As his girlfriend, what would you do or think? Would you be appreciative of him "standing up" for you? Or would you think the opposite?

I'd like the hear men voice their opinion too, would you ever beat up a guy to that extent for calling your girlfriend trailer trash?

ETA: I'm glad you're all on the same page as me haha. If my boyfriend ever got that violent over something relatively minor, when he could have reacted in a much more civilized manner...it would shock me and make me wonder about his temper and anger management abilities.

The girlfriend involved does not think this, I'm pretty sure she's flattered and reveling in the fact that he's not going to get in one bit of trouble.

Women: how much weight do you usually gain when you are on your period? Do you actually look and feel fatter?

Men: Can you tell when a woman is on her period? (strangers, girls you know, whatever)

So I was accepted into an esteemed college. Some kids in my grade are having a pissy fit over it because apparently I'm "not smart enough." This isn't true since I don't hang in their circles so they don't know me. Also, I kind of have a life. They don't. What should I say to the next little fucker who questions me?

If you were writing something that would require you to use the N word (such as quoting a text that includes it), would you censor the word out?

This is not for homework btw.

ETA: It's for a lengthy lj entry I'm writing about a film I watched critiquing the gender politics of the hip hop industry, and I need to use the N word as an example of derogatory terms men use to refer to one another.
