Okay, so I like this girl, the problem is that she's going to Italy for a year in August. She's kind of shy. How do I hang out with her without seeming over-anxious?
Would you rather stay up late studying? Or wake up early to study?
Me?...Obviously, I rather stay up late...
2. Do feet gross you out? If so do they have to be big gross nasty feet or any feet?
3. Are you a person that isent bothered by feet, but has met somebody with really horrible looking walkers that broke your resolve and grossed you out?
If you've had experience with either of these, how did they work? Which company or website did you go through? How much did you get paid? How was your schedule?
While I'm here, I've seen ads in the past where a community center or college would offer classes that last several weeks, where anyone can attend (paid), and you learn some random skill like sign language or basket-weaving. How would I find who offers something like this in my area (since I'm not sure its colleges or whatever)? And, please don't just say "google." I'm not really sure what to search for.
i mean its talked about all the time as something fearful and cancerous. in movies and video games it is a bright green sludge, but i want to know what it really looks like.
i had no luck with google
are you afraid of things that are said to be radioactive?
i know i freak out a bit when i hear something is radioactive
2. what is your nighttime attire of choice?
I actually did this. And I like the guy.
2. What did you miss?
3. I am on the East Coast, when the President gives a speech at 6pm PST, do they still air the prime time shows scheduled on the West Coast or do they bump them with repeats so they can keep in step with the East Coast?
(I ask because I missed "Lie To Me" and want to see if I can find it online tomorrow.)
4. Non-American TQCers, how often does your country's leader butt into your TV viewing? Did you even watch her/his last speech or did you turn off the TV immediately?
I can do a bit of contact juggling, can hum & whistle at the same time in harmony, and know how to say a few things (mostly insults) in Gaelic.
What sort of useless skills would you like to learn?
I think it would be awesome to learn parkour, some sleight of hand, and how to fake at least one foreign accent convincingly.
what will you give me?
WILL YOU CELEBRATE WITH ME? :]
what's the last good news you received?
what other languages do you know?
is your school/place of work freaking out over swine flu like mine is?
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies
And all that's best of dark and light
Meet in her aspect and her eyes,
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
That Heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
That waves o'er every raven tress
and then I can't remember the rest up until
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!
What color are they?
I'm writing a Chicago formatted paper on international law right now. I make constant reference to one specific UN convention. Should I capitalize the "c" in convention when I refer to it only by that word?
So I know that you'll understand...
Introduced in 2000 in Palermo, Italy and having entered into force in September 2003, the UN Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime recalled the 1998 resolution 53/111. That resolution called for the establishment of an open-ended ad hoc committee to create a comprehensive convention concerning transnational organized crime in its many forms.4 The result is “the main international instrument in the fight against transnational organized crime.”5 Providing legislation as antidote, the convention offers definitions for the diseases...
(italics added for emphasis)
Great invention or best invention?
What can I do to make my throat stop hurting? Also, is it the swine flu? I don't think it's strep because I've had that before and it produced a different kind of sore throat...
Also: do you sprinkle the seasoning packet on the ramen noodles and eat them dry? I'd never heard of doing this until one of my friends told me she used to eat it that way all the time.
What name brand products do you use instead of generic or off-brands? Why?
Do you wax, trim, shave, use electrosis/laser or other?
The First: "Ding Dong Daddy of the D Car Line", Cherry Poppin' Daddies
The Vanishing Babydaddy: "Responsibility," MXPX
The Emo Kid: "Cheer Up Emo Kid," Patent Pending
The Static Cling: "Without You," Mariah Carey
The One: "Don't Wanna Fall In Love", Green Day

He was saying that its not a matter of "if" we have a flu or virus that wipes out most of the worlds population - its a matter of when.
I didn't agree with that. I might have agree'd a few centuries ago - but i think that we have reached a point in technology where, although there's bound to be many more very deadly viruses, it will never be able to wipe most of us out (except for maybe poor countries with poor education and health care).
What if the spanish flu of 1918 didnt happen until today. Would we still loose 50 million people to it?
Looks like im wrong on this one lol
My bf says it is cinnamon. Clearly he is wrong, yes?
Any suggestions? What am I doing wrong?
EDIT: SOLVED! Dr House told me I'm suffering from AGE.
My wisdom teeth are being stupid and the right side of my mouth is super swollen and I can barely open my mouth because my jaw is so stiff. Grrr. >:C
What's for breakfast?
Probably a banana mushed up with some peanut butter. :( lol
My friend Sebastian is one of my closest friends from College. He had been living/lives abroad (China and Finalnd) since graduation and I have seen him 3 times in the last 3 years. He got engaged not too long ago and his engagement party is on Saturday May 16th in Brooklyn (I live in Manhattan) at 4pm. I RSVPed at least a month ago.
My friend Caroline is my closest friend from boarding high school. She lives in Connecicut and I've seen her 4 times since high school graduation (7 years). She is finally graduating from college and her graduation party is on Saturday May 16th in Connecticut (not that far a drive from NYC) at 4pm. I RSVPed at least 2 weeks ago.
I didn't realize I double booked. I can't physically go to both. This is an impossible choice. So what do I do? Do I just go to the one that I RSVPed to first? HELP?!
Edit: How do you feel about inclusion?
When you've done this, how long did you wait? What was the interview for the adoption like? I've always found my cats as strays, so I've never officially adopted a pet before.
OMGZ!!! I just got a fried pork-chop for lunch AM I GONNA DIE?
Are you afraid of flying? If you are, how do you calm yourself down or make yourself less anxious? Do you try to rationalise the problem, medicate yourself somehow or is it so bad that you try to avoid flying?

What's the longest flight you've ever been on? Did it suck? What airline was it?

Relish or no relish on your hot dog?

it's just a lame respiratory virus...
I became the latter when I got sick of the former, but now I'm wondering if it's worth it
I open the toaster oven box and the toaster oven is OBLITERATED. Bent metal and broken glass everywhere where something huge and sharp pierced the box, the inside box and my toaster oven and then dragged downward. It's like my box was attacked with a crane-hook or something.
Do I call UPS or Target first?
Edit: I called Target, they'll let me exchange it via mail. What do you think happened to my box? Points for creativity.
What should I do to celebrate tonight?

At what age would you let them walk alone to a friend's house two blocks away? Only residential streets would need to be crossed.
I've known Jason since I was 13 years old(I'm 23 now). We were best friends in high school and everyone always thought we were going to end up together, but we were always seeming to miss the boat and date other people. But we've always had feelings for each other. We lost contact for like the couple of years because he had been dating a girl for about 3 years.
Dwayne and I will have been together for a year on June 25th. We are currently living together and I love him very much. But lately things have been kind of hard in our relationship. We don't really spend any time together other than sitting at home watching TV. On Valentines day he got drunk and played poker with his friends rather than spending time with me, even on my birthday he didn't spend time with me other than dinner with my family.
He has like no concept of romance, and I feel like I'm just a room mate that he has sex with on occasion because it's like we have no romance, and we never go do anything together. I spend more time with my room mate!
Part 3(This is where the two stories collide)
On my birthday Jason and another friend from high school, came out with me for my birthday. Dwayne opted not to come out to the bars with us because he didn't like the bar we were going to(Which I wish he could have sucked it up for my birthday).
Anyway, so we got pretty smashed on my birthday and Jason and I ended up kissing. We went out and talked about it the next day, and we agreed that it wouldn't happen again because I have a boyfriend and he had just gotten out of a three year relationship and didn't want to start anything with anyone at the time.
So I'm pretty happy because I've reconnected with a really good friend. It's like I've got my best friend back!
But he we come in to the problem. Jason and I obviously still have major feelings for each other, even all these years later. And we're both confused about what to do. We don't want to stop being friends because we are really close. But I have a boyfriend and I don't know what to do.
Dwayne and I have obviously been having some issues lately, before this happened with Jason, but I don't want to throw away a relationship that's been going on for almost a year when I do love him. But if he doesn't stop treating me like nothing more than a room mate I can't see us lasting.
Basically I'm just really confused and I don't know what I'm going to do.
(Serious and non serious answers ok. I could use a laugh).
...get a tattoo on your scalp? You shave your head and get a tattoo of your own face inked on the top of your head. It'd probably be really painful maybesorta. However, once it's on, you'll have to endure the awkward glances and conversations that ensue until your hair grows back. You can't tell anyone about the money and you can't get the tat removed for at least a year, and even then, you'll have to shave your head again.
...post pictures in your journal of yourself inexplicably buck naked and masturbating with a piece of fruit? You have to leave the pics up for a full day. You can totally beg people not to copy or circulate the pics, but how well do you trust your flist?
...go kayaking across 4 miles of shark-infested waters (from one boat to another) while dragging a large bloody piece of meat behind you on a rope? There's a good chance nothing may happen, but there's a possibility that your kayak may be pulled under by a hungry shark who's tugging on the meat
...parachute naked into the middle of a Sexual Addict Anonymous picnic at the park? Once you land, you have to run around for 5 minutes, flaunting your goodies before all. They'll be over 100 of them there, trying their best to stay in control and not think about sex and hoping they don't relapse, and bam, there you are. Things to be concerned about: sending that many people off the wagon, and maybe attracting a few horny perverts onto your naked ass
...remove someone's appendix? You're in a third world hospital and there's no doctors left and a little boy desperately needs his appendix taken out. You're given an hour of prep time to pour through the medical operation books, which will tell you how to do it. Then, after the hour's through, you have to make the incision, find the appendix and cut it out and whatever else needs to be done. You'll have a nurse at hand who'll clamp up the necessary places so the boy won't bleed to death. If the boy doesn't make it, well, no one will hold you responsible really, since it's an extremely poor country with lousy hospitals and this kind of thing happens all the time. You just have to live what the consequences
If yes, do you?
Do you care is someone goes into the bathroom while you're on the toilet?

i have taken it three times since 2005 and on all three tries, i got a D.
the first exam, i was really really bad at it. i got extra classes for my second try, but failed again. last year, i REALLY tried hard and went to all of my classes, did my own work, etc, but failed again! which is a bit fishy because i know i have improved, so how can i have received the same grade for all 3? if i got a D in my last one, i would've surely been an E in my previous ones.
anyway, my mum wants me to take the exam AGAIN. which means taking $20 per hour classes along with it. is it worth trying for a fourth time? or is it just not meant to be?
ps. this scholarship is a full one - pays for your uni years along with a monthly allowance.
