when was the last time something like that happened to you? bonus if it happened during im conversations!
(For the record, I have a suit because I make them for a living--it's a job, not a lifestyle. So I won't be butthurt.) :)
Why did you move away?
What things did you pack/take with you?
How did living on your own or with roomates make you feel?
did you hear that bea arthur died?? :( :(
2. why aren't you asleep?
3. when was the last time you thought of sex?
4. on what topic are you irrational?
What are some things to do outside that don't involve spending a lot of money, doing grocery shopping or just hanging around outside?
What have you eaten in the last 24 hours?
2) What is that site where you can record yourself speak. Save it- and then give you a link so other people can hear?
How awesome would it be if after about 50 seconds, I cut to Rick Astley singing "Never Gonna Give You Up?"

Are you planning anything for Queens Day?
Afghan Victory Day is the 28th....any parties I need to know about??

2. If you have lived with someone that was a stranger to you, what were your experiences like? Was it better, or worse than you were expecting? Do you have any advice for someone that is going to be living with a complete stranger for the first time? :)
this weekend is spring jam at the u of mn, and last night a nice riot broke out by drunk college kids.
would you ever participate in a riot?
How many more times do you think i'll be asked before my shift is over
Who did you tell?
2. One time I read a list of the effect of quitting smoking has on your body. It says like day one - you stop stinking, week four - taste buds grow back, month 5 - your heart gets healthier, etc. Know what I'm talking about/where to find it?
I teach grade 8 Language Arts, and we just finished doing some literature circles. Lit circles are kind of like book clubs, where a group of a few kids read the same book and discuss it. To celebrate the books being finished, we are going to watch movies next week. Each group will watch a movie related to their book. If there was a movie adaptation of the book made, like Jurassic Park and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, they will watch that movie. If not, they will watch a movie similar to the book's theme or storyline. I am stuck on a few of them, though. Would you suggest some movies that are similar to these books' themes and/or storylines? Please remember these are 14 year olds, so though The Untouchables would fit with Tunnels of Time, I can't have characters dropping f-bombs left and right.
1. Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix. ( Collapse )
2. Flush by Carl Hiaasen. ( Collapse )
3. Tunnels of Time by Mary Harelkin Bishop. ( Collapse )
4. Sounder by William H. Armstrong. (I know there was a movie made of this book in the 70s, which I might be able to find. But if I can't...)( Collapse )
x-posting to teaching
1: How do you defriend without making it awkward? Like, do you just send a little pm that explains why you cut them or do you cut them without an explanation?
2: Have you ever cut someone without doing a mass friends cut? If so, how did you do it?
3: Related to cuts but not my situation, when you do a mass friends cut, do you warn people and provide an explanation or do you do it without warning? If you do it without warning, has anyone ever taken it personally and started drama?
What are some good colleges up there (besides Kings College, Cambridge, and Oxford)?

Are there any new ones that you particularly lust over? I'm considering an iphone since my contract is up soon and I could get a refurb of most phones (including the iphone) free or for cheap, but I would like to examine all other options first.

I ususally wear black mascara and only mascara, but lately I've been trying to wear eyeliner thick , dark, and slightly smudged around my eyes and winged at the edges.

What don't you like about them?
If applicable, why?
With your parents? Own apartment? College dorms? Do you share a room?
I don't know how that would work, maybe you'd care less because you didn't feel the fear, embarrassment, anger that comes with the pain? Any thoughts or theories? (you win an internet for which game I was thinking about when I thought of this.) ((the main reason I am asking this is because I'm going to write a fan-drabble about it and I want it to be sorta realistic.))
How do you think you'd feel if you had no emotion and your hand got cut off, but you could still feel physical pain? (((sorry for the rambling all over the place.)))
How could I phrase this question better?
wondering if anyone knows any really good websites where you can order sterling silver engraved jewelry (particularly rings). points if you can choose your own font or there is a wide selection.

I'm on day four of this brutal madness, but I only went to the doctor to get antibiotics yesterday :(
Is there -anything- that helps? I'm taking aspirin for the fever and the antibiotics, but I would really like to be able to swallow (ANYTHING really, but primarily water would be awesome) instead of spitting into a cup every few minutes -_-
The whole entire internet keeps telling me to drink <b>warm milk with turmeric and black pepper</b> in it, but fuck that shit, obviously.
Help me :(
How were you asked to prom?
Do you listen to songs in any other language than your own? If so, which ones?
Did you feel bad when you said no to the other colleges you applied to? Why or why not?
Our AC seems to be broken on this unseasonal 96 and freaking humid day :( Apartment maintenance won't come in to fix it until later this week. Besides cold showers, cold drinks, less clothing, not being as active and swimming (the pool isn't open yet) how would you suggest to cool down?
What are your plans for Koninginnedag?
'Cause me? I just ate shit walking into a cow skull
A little back ground history; I'm part of a team for the Relay for Life and each member has to raise a minimum of $100. So in order to try and reach my goal, I tried enlisting my legit friends that I know from school on social networking group by sending them (in two groups) a message explaining why I am participating with a link to the page where they can donate.
It's been almost two weeks and I only heard back from one who really wanted to help but is in another country and can't really donate, however no one else has responded saying whether or not they are able to donate or even bother to donate without saying anything.
I can understand the reasons why people don't want to donate.
So here's my questions:
1) Do I have the right to feel fustrated/angry/a liitle hurt and want to call them f@#king douche bags (only internaly, not to their faces)?
2) How else should I try and get donations with having to canvassing around my neighbourhood?
My friend works at a Pharmacy, and today I dropped my resume off there.
There was a quick exchange between me and the cashier, and I left the store.
(Quick: Me: Hey, I have my resume, I'd like to apply for a job.
Her: Okay, thanks.
Me: (seeing no reason to stay) Thank you!
Her: Oh, are you still in school?
Her: So part-time then.
Me: Yes, evenings and weekends.
Her: Thank you!
And I leave.)
I get home and my friend informs me that she overheard the cashier telling another that she "ripped up this girl's resume" because she "thought she was stealing 'cause she like ran out". (She described the girl as strawberry haired, and I've got red hair.)
Am I in the right to be mad? Is calling the store going to do a damn thing?
Should I apply again or just forget about it?
I know Urban Outfitters carries what I'm looking for but I'm hesitant to pay that much.

Choose from anyone including a politician, actor, character, sport coach someone from public life or just anyone you know.
For me it's Nicole Kidman's new face followed by Peter Costello, an Australian politician.
Do you find living in that state enjoyable?
Daniel Jonah Goldhagen’s ‘Crazy’ Thesis: A Critique of Hitler’s Willing Executioners
by Norman G. Finklestein, and JSTOR is not cooperating with me. Can anyone use their google-fu and find the full text for me, or advise me on how to use JSTOR and finding this hidden gem?
The paper on the goldhagen debate is due at the end of May, but I like to have my sources read and understood before I start in on it! :D

Today, in order to keep my prestigious job at Papa John's, I was made to sign a paper that said, in part, that I would not speak critically on the Internet about their products, customers, team members, supply partners, officers, directors, shareholders, or anyone else remotely affiliated with them. In fact, if I talk about them at all (even if I'm not identifying myself as their employee), I'm to use the following disclaimer: Everything posted on this blog is my personal opinion and does not necessarily represent the views of my employer or those affiliated with my employer.
#1: Have you ever experienced anything like this?
#2: What is Papa John's HQ going to do with me, when they find this?
#3: What does this mean for the future of customers_suck?

Has anything like this ever happened where you live? How were you affected? (I haven't really been affected since we have a water cooler that I usually drink from)
Would you drink boiled water?
They said that it was safe to shower or brush your teeth with the water without boiling it. Would you shower or brush your teeth with this water? Does it make a difference that the micro-organisms are probably not harmful to humans? (apparently, boiling the water is just a precaution)
My boyfriend and I just tried to organize our apartment. I realized that between the two of us we have a lot of hobbies.

2: What is your favorite flavor of pudding?

"This was to ensure that as little as possible of the restituted dowry left the family."

A friend of mine wants to explore an abandoned prison that is supposedly haunted. I'm kind of paranoid and worried that we're gonna find a body or something. Sounds kinda cool, though.
alternately how can i make this seem cohesive at all without some kind of god-damn message. not really question, just my frustrations.
how old does a question on TQC have to be before you consider it "too old to reply to"?

What would you do?
Get help from another supervisor
Do what the customer wants
Ask the customer to calm down before you will help her

"A clip to a movie"
Is there a dialect where this kind of thing is actually correct? I'm seeing it everywhere today.
Also, I fell and skinned the palm of my hand. Will it heal faster bandaged or exposed to the air?

do you sit at the front or the back on a rollercoaster?
Why does my pepperoni and cheese pizza taste like mushrooms?
