sry i post so much

what do you do when you just feel like crying, really for no reason but just to feel relieved? why do you think you feel this way?

what do you do when you can't fall asleep? i took melatonin but idk, didn't help much :(

do you drink tap water? if not, what kind of water do you use to make tea/coffee?

why the heck do people leave the water running while they brush their teeth?

Do you like monograms? Is anything of yours monogrammed?
Today this guy from a culture where monogramming isn't common compared my apparent penchant for monograms to an animal marking its territory [via urination]! I was so insulted!

What new cell phone should I get? I'm using Verizon. This website lists my options.

It must:
1) Have a real web browser. (i.e. no WAP).
2) Be able to run real programs-- able to run free third-party software-- (i.e. NO Qualcomm BREW)such as Java, Windows Mobile, Palm, etc software..
3) Be PDA or PDA-ish.
4) Avoids stupid, artificial restrictions (as many as can be avoided) by Verizon (my provider) on the phone.

5) I'd PREFER a real, physical keyboard as well, but this isn't as big of a requirement.

Cross-posted.

what have you done that may not make sense, but is strictly because of the principle of the matter?

UGH TQC
On a scale of 1-10, how much do you hate putting on a freshly washed/dried pair of jeans? D:


10!!! They are always too tight (= UNCOMFORTABLE) for the first couple hours before they stretch out to their "normal" shape. I know a lot of people don't put their jeans in the dryer for expressly this reason but I'd rather they be too tight and then perfect a few hours later than perfect to start and then too baggy a few hours later...

I know we have quite a few NaNoWriMoers in the community, so I'm curious: how many TQC folk are participating in Script Frenzy?

I'm the admin for the Screnzy facebook group, and I've been getting my inbox flooded for the last few days with people asking about it. Do you ever get your inbox flooded by people you don't know?

Are there any movies that are based on books that you prefer to the book? (please ignore the extremely awkward phrasing of that question.)

TQC, I'm out of bed early because my boyfriend woke up for class and his contacts were making his eyes hurt and he was angry and loud about it.

Should I...

a) Read and try to fall back asleep
b) Stay online and hope LJ gets less boring
c) Watch random things that have been TiVo'd
d) Play PS2 even though the only game I can find is this X-Files game which is kind of boring
e) ????

i'm teaching a science unit on the human body to second graders in the next few weeks. one of the major parts of my unit is a 2 1/2 ft tall model of the human body (yes, i found my tag board to make it) that i can add organs onto with velcro. i'm psyched about it, but i'm writing my first lesson right now, and... i need a name for him/her/it.

tqc, what would you name my tagboard anatomy buddy?

ps, i'm at a middle socioeconomic level school in louisiana and there are only 3 black students in my class. i'm not averse to making this little guy multicultural.

TQC, help me find my cell phone please. I hung out with my friend Stephanie when I lost it and it's not with her or in her car. As we were hanging out, we got some pot and it's not at the guy's house. I have been looking all over my house for it and I cannot find it. I have called it but it was on vibrate and now it is off (it had low battery anyway).

Anyone have any (recent) experience with concerts at HardRock Live? Specifically Orlando? I am seeing Ben Folds there tomorrow, and I want to bring a camera in. In the past, I've put a disposable camera between my boobs, and I have gotten right in. I want to bring my digital one, but I feel like it would set off the metal detector, and I don't want them to take it away/have to run BACK to my car after waiting in line for general admission standing, you know? Suggestions?


If you don't give a shit, what bands/groups/musicians have you seen live? How about comedian?
I've seen BB King 3 times, MCR twice, Green Day once, Reel Big Fish, John Mayer, and this will be my 2nd Ben Folds show. I' really want to start going to more concerts. I've also seen Jim Gaffigan and Lewis Black.

Why do some people think it's okay to pierce their childs ear(s) but it's totally against them to consider circumcision?
Seeing as both are a form of mutilation and all.

Why do you think some people assume is it okay to mutilate a child for fashion but questionable when it comes to tradition?
Would you pierce your young childs ears? 

I loath it when children have their ears pierced before they can ask and give consent for it!  Mine were pierced as a baby and it caused scar tissue in my ear making it impossible for me to be able to stretch my lobes now without a blowout.

Dear TQC;

This dress + these boots= awesome times or fashion disaster?

I could steal my sister's red kitten heels to wear with the dress again, but they're too big and give me blisters :(

How would you accessorize that dress? Where would you wear it to? Is it too fancy/not fancy enough/too weird to wear to a semi-formal steakhouse, if the other party is wearing a suit + tie?

How often do you consult the internets (including TQC and Google) for fashion advice?

What is your opinion on committing a serious crime while intoxicated?  Murder, sexual assault, etc.
Do you think alcohol and drugs have the potential to make you commit a serious crime that you would not do while sober?
Should one receive a reduced sentence (ex/ reduced to 5 years from 7 years) if they were found to be extremely intoxicated while committing that serious crime?

We brought this up in my grade 12 Law class and I was extremely interested.  I love this unit. :)

Inspired by itsme_b's post...

1) Have you had any of your wisdom teeth pulled?
2) Were they impacted/infected/anything?
3) Were you put under anesthesia or just given a local anesthetic?
4) Did it hurt? On a scale of 1-10 how much did it hurt?
5) How long did the procedure take and how long after did it take to heal up?
6) If you don't have insurance, how much did it cost?

I thought I would never have wisdom teeth, but alas one has broken through the gums and has been coming up for about 8 months now. I don't have insurance so I haven't seen a dentist in a while. So I just wanna know how it has gone down for you guys.

I'm extremely sad because I just tried to make these and some other cookies for my friends birthday and they've both failed incredibly. So the cookies are rock hard and gross and as for the cake balls, I got all the way up to the step where they're in the fridge right now for a few hours.  They just taste grossly sweet.

Should I bother adding the chocolate and giving it to my friend?
What should I give my friend instead? I feel terrible since I was so excited to make them and I didn't really have anything else planned to give him besides for the baked goods.

Drug related death

A friend of a friend died recently from a heroin overdose. It's hard for me to offer any sympathy for this. If she had died under other circumstances I'd feel more sorry for this loss.

This guy basically just married twins.

"Our reporters were just gagging to hear the response to this mouth-watering question “And.... what are the sleeping arrangements Mr Wichai”? to which he replied modestly with a beaming smile “Absolutely no problems! For the first three nights of the week, I will sleep with Ms Thipawan and the next three will be spent with Ms Sirintara. As for every Saturday, the three of us will sleep together”"

bank account confusion

so, in my bank account it says the amount available is 22 dollars. im confused by this because i went and got coffee and gas today, and it should be close to nothing now. this is what it says in the statement:

03/31/09 CHKCARDMEIJER INC #120SOUTH B INUS $1.00-gas
(pending)
03/31/09 CHKCARDMEIJER INC #120SOUTH B INUS $1.38-coffee
(pending)

i filled up the tank with about 20 bucks worth of gas though, and that is not on the statement, and aside from the coffee at the same place, i made no transactions.

so, did i just get free gas, or is this some weird tax thing and ill get charged tomorrow?

ETA-oh i see. thats weird that its never happened to me before! and i was all excited for a minute there =[

She couldn't have done anything about it if she hadn't saved her peanut butter jar as proof (Even though they said to throw them away... yeah, why do you think they said that?).
