Greeting cards, just so say "hello", or "get well soon", etc.?
Thank you cards?
Digital style, or snail mail?
If digital, what is your favorite site for finding/sending e-cards?
Me - I send my friends/family snail mail birthday cards (most people), winter holiday cards (ambigious religion - everyone in address book), valentine's day cards (close friends/family), thank you cards (for any and all gifts and/or attendences at a function I had). Also, if a friend is getting married and I can't go to the wedding I send a card. I send my dad e-cards, but only because he lives in Mexico and by the time I remember to send a card, it's too late to send it snail mail to Mexico from NYC.
How often do you change your underwear?
watchtvsicoms sucks so bad.
FML why did my dad throw away my expensive protein powder? :(
(mine is any version of the Aston Martin DB series)
(especially since I don't remember downloading any of it)
Will you list a couple clues about anywhere (city/state/country/whatever) in the world? TQC will try and guess that place. I dont know if this is gonna be lame or not.
Which ones do you think are underrated?
Edit: Specific products!
I think Diorshow is EXTREMELY overrated.
Korres lipgloss is underrated.
eta: a lot of liars here.
EDIT: Weird as in David Lynch, Zdzisław Beksiński, etc.
for example, i was looking for an angry house and then i realised my face was like >:| even though i'm not personally angry and it won't help me find him.
How many songs do you have in your music library that go for longer than 10 minutes?
How many that go for less than 2 minutes?
What are the longest and shortest songs you have?
"In 1991, the big war had begun/(speaking people?) (lived their lives?) in the heat of a manmade sun/Although the people tried/to keep the world alive/(the whole world was warring from the rioting that was done?)
Chorus: Nineteen ninety one...Nineteen ninety one...Nineteen hundred and ninety one...
(Something, skipped around?) They say the minions that survived, and the entire population left with the children from the sky! Now was the time, their journey had begun, they left the earth forever, for the kingdom of the sun!
Chorus: For the kingdom of the sun...Now their journey has begun...
(Musical interlude involving weird sound effects, an organ, and guitar)
All the fathers love their daughters/All the world your time has come/They left the planet earth forever/for the kingdoms of the sun..."
If you're not, do you feel like you should be?
I don't engage in any self-destructive behaviors, but I always feel highly compelled to. It's a near-constant fight, and sometimes I feel like I'm cheating fate (even though I don't believe in it) by not being a completely screwed up person, and like it's only a matter of time before I lose everything. Is that weird?
My "Recently Updated Friends" page has been changed to "People You May Know," but my roommates' accounts are all normal. What??
Hot and sour soup for breakfast y/y?
There's two probable cases of swine flu at my university -- how close is swine flu to YOU?
I want to try and give a coworker my morning shift tomorrow. There's no reason why other than not wanting to get up early, but I feel like I should have a better reason than that.
What should I tell my coworker so there is incentive for her to take my shift?
Do you rabbit?
*a stack stuffed with everything you want from your chair to the front door is not "one thing"
Will this whole thing be over by then? Will we all be DEAD?
My wife called me a pig on the phone....do I have IT? Will I give IT to you??
I always put the tea bag in first and I have read that that's the way you're "supposed" to do it. I know a lot of people who always put the water in first, which makes no sense to me, because then the teabag floats and it's difficult to infuse it. Why oh why is it so appealing to have a floating, non-infusing tea bag?
Should the U.S. have a standardized national curriculum for schools? If so, what should it include?
If yes, is it conducive to allowing people who are behind you in line to drive to the other window and end up getting ahead of you in line?
what kind of jeans are you wearing?
who was the last person you hit?
doesn't have to be a punch, could be a smack.
I have an 8-page paper in International Social Work due tonight at midnight. I haven't really started. Should I work on it here at work or wait until I get home around 5:30?
a: washed your hair?
b: hugged someone?
c: ate a meal?
What are some cities and/or attractions that I must see?
What should I pack?
I'm learning Spanish and want to listen to songs in the language to familiarize myself with the way it sounds. Can you suggest a song or two for me to listen to?
( Collapse )
So now I'm looking for new jobs and am dreading job interviews because people are idiots.
Have you ever been or when was the last time you were in a position where people refuse to listen to what you say?
How could I ever repay you?
what can i do at work to pass the time and keep myself from going stir crazy?
edit: i work in an office, if this helps spark your creativity.
first off, i'm planning on asking for a new hair straightener and blow dryer for my birthday, but i haven't bought either in so long that i don't know what's good.
i straighten my hair pretty regularly, so i'm looking for something that isn't going to fry my hair too bad. and it would be nice if it made my hair look shiny too!
as for the blow dryer, i really have no specifications other than not too expensive.
so, any suggestions for nice, moderately priced hair straighteners and blow dryers?
also, this morning my right ear bud went out so i'm on the market for new ones. my ears are pretty small so i was wondering if anyone knew of some cheap (or just not expensive) earbuds that would fit small ears?
thanks guys. :]
I say r-ow-t and se-nair-ee-oh. A professor of mine always says se-NAH-ree-oh and it drives me nuts.
Which compliment would be the nicest thing someone could say to you?
Monster Attacks :S
I brought instant oatmeal for lunch, and I really don't want it.
I have $86 in checking for the next week.
Should I order lunch, or choke down the oatmeal?
What should I order if I do?
Do you read http://thisiswhyyourefat.com/? Does it ever make you hungry?
I have a friend who constantly says/texts/types 'brought' instead of 'bought'. It irritates the piss of out me for some reason. Would that bug you?
(my housemate just put on Eurotrip and this is just... odd))
Why do they do that? Why not show all the trailers at once?
My psychiatrist gave me one, and I'm afraid they won't take it for whatever reason. It's also supposed to be affixed to the back of my prescription for it, but it's not. Should I do that myself? It seems to just be a sticker I can stick to the back of it.
I failed it today. :(

2/ Are there certain places you won't poop?
3/ What websites do you visit daily?
What is your favorite team on Legends of the Hidden Temple?
and if you're under 21 (in the US) do you have a fake ID? how do people manage to get these things?
what's something you want to happen right now?
You're having your 2-story dream house built. Everything you want in the house is already guaranteed. Now you have to pick between one of these to be put in your house. There's no other option and you HAVE to have one in order to complete the house. Which one do you pick:
1. A bowling alley on the 2nd floor with no special noise reducing stuff in the room
2. The stairs are built so that (magically) you can only go up them. In order to get downstairs, you have to go down a firehouse pole.
What should I buy? How do I use it? Tips for makeup noob?
Which of these amazing, mysterious or peculiar things have you experienced first-hand, as in, with your own eyes?
i've only read some little excerpts from his on lj's literary quotes community but i really want to read some of his stuff now and i don't know which book to get?
if you've read him what would you suggest?
A boxed lunch meal, scone, pumpkin bread, and a bunch of water. Score.
two. What RSS feed are you watching on LJ?
three. Is it raining where you are?
four. What was the last book you read?
should i go with my sister to the prom after parties just for the lulz?
ETA: i know the correct answer is no, ( omg i would never irl) but she keeps asking me and i need to switch up my answers.
Also, I'm wondering, if any of you had flu-like symptoms(even mild-moderate), would you go to the doctor and get tested so that if it turned out you had h1n1 your workplace/school could be shutdown for sanitization or would you just stay home, maybe stop by the store and pick up some soup and ginger ale and cough syrup?
What is your most played song, if you know that? Mine is "I Can't Decide" by Scissor Sisters.
I like to make icons that parody internet memes, like the O Rly bird. I made an O'Leary cow with fire behind it, and an O Roly with the Roly Poly bugs. However, now I am in the mood to just do random icons of random things like crayons or trees or animals. I leave the suggestions up to you - what should I icon? Serious and non-serious answers alike greatly appreciated.
How much does it annoy you?
should i eat my pizza lunchable?
what are you doing tonight bb?
I keep mine on my keychain, my boyfriend keeps his in his car, and our roommate keeps his attached to his suit jacket (except when he's washing it, obviously).
Also, how strict is your company about working off the clock?
I just started a new job, and if I help out a customer when I'm not clocked in, even if it's as simple as telling them where a department is, I have to go back and fill out a time adjustment form. Even if it takes less than a minute (this has been specified). Failure to do so can get me fired. That seems just a bit extreme to me. O.o
What icon would you hate me forever for even thinking about using?
Are you ready for the zombie flu?
What about songs with/about colors?
What songs do you blast on a clear summer day with the windows down?
My sister just randomly infected Madagascar: how awesome is she?
Suggestions for t.v. shows or movies to watch?
Or, anything else to do instead?

17 again, obsessed, or fast and the furious?
why is the hot guy on The Dr.'s always wearing scrubs?
I feel that my stomach is looking a bit pudgy. What are ways to get rid of excess bloating? For instance, what types of foods should I avoid? Any other tips appreciated.

EDIT if i book a round trip flight from san diego to geneva roundtrip.... (but i only need to take the flight from geneva to san diego) because its cheaper...will it matter if i dont show up at the san diego to geneva flight but still show up for the return flight only (roundtrips are cheaper than one way)....
kind of cheating a little but it saves me 500 dollars?
So, can anyone recommend some good alternative music to play at a wedding?
I'm having a hard time 'cause all the alt songs that appear appropriate are actually about ex's or break-ups.
I tried calling home and my phone has been disconnected!!
What can THAT mean???
i like joan baez's version of let it be, rather than the beatles.
My next birthday is June 19, and I will be 94 Mercurian years old.
Edit: I think everybody's next birthday is on Mercury because the cycles are so short, so if you want, you can just choose any of the planets.
Which 3 people do you use your 3 bullets on?
How fast does a skateboard go, anyway?
Do you have alternate suggestions for how I can get home quickly?
When that-flu-that-must-not-be-named arrives on the tqc island, who will be spared?
p.s. stop suggesting bikes.

If you don't have an iPhone, why not?
Do you think it's fair that these students can't graduate with their classmates because they went to Mexico and the rest of the students are freaking out and don't want to be around them at graduation time? (they have to have their own separate graduation)
TQC has been a little slow lately. Will you post a new question in a new thread for me?
Have you set your facebook to pirate language mode? Hilarious.
I live in Michigan if it matters.
We've been together less than a year, he's going to be 24, can't drive, is getting ready to move to Portland, likes alternative music, has an iPhone which he refuses to use a case for, loves watching sports, enjoys alcohol, enjoys marijuana, and likes nature shit and Animal Planet.
For example, like the French are stereotyped as being quite egotistical.

What band did you used to not like, but have recently gained a liking for?
I was never a fan of Animal Collective, but My Girls is such a great song.
This is a total lie, since I walked out one day after being verbally threatened by another employee and then yelled at by the manager to just keep my mouth shut and do my job. I called the manager (the store manager) the next day to talk to him about it and the manager (who had yelled at me) told him that I had thrown my apron at a customer and walked out, so I was out of the job.
TQC... how much bullshit is this, really?
Would it be bad if I were to call this place and talk to the store manager and ask him 'wtf? did you seriously lie and say that I never contacted you?'
Anyone ever fought unemployment people before? Filed an appeal? Advice?
2: Do your neighbors mow the lawn at odd hours?
3: What was the last book that you read that annoyed you?
I got all As on the rest of the projects, but this one is worth 50% of our grade.
Do I fix it? (Leaning towards NO because I'm so done and hated that class anyway)
Will I get an A in the class if I still get a B+ on it?

What flavor/color do you want?
are you/people in your local area freaking out about swine flu?
there have been 3 confirmed cases here in Scotland. 2 are now out of hospital and no longer contagious so why, i ask you, are people walking about Glasgow city centre with protective face masks on?
What was the last lucky thing that happened to you?
What kind of purse/wallet do you have? I have a Spy Bag and a Fossil wallet that I got in Hawaii.
Thanks for the help, if you can lol
( Collapse )
edit: i'm sorry, i know i could probably get a good explanation searching it on google.. and i have, but i'm not really getting the answer i'm looking for from it. my dad seems to be playing it a lot lately, and i'm just trying to figure out what's so great about it that it would make him want to be on it instead of, you know, spending time with his fifteen year old daughter.
Did you/do you have a fake ID? I don't drink but my friends are all older and go out to bars and I am a baby and have to stay home and watch cartoons. Adult Swim is still half decent. Anyway, I'd feel lame if I got a fake ID but I still kinda want one.
When was the last time a poor person pulled a shenan on you? These guys outside CVS asked for money (no cash) and then food so I got them stuff and they were gone when I got out! What the shit!?
Edit: shenan = shenanigan. You see, I am just a young one (darling we're the young ones...) and say words like totes and shenans.
mine was the Moon colliding with the Earth. one night i had a nightmare about it and was scared shitless for months, if not a year.
what are the best books and websites to learn from?
I really like El Orfanato (spanish) and Reincarnation (japanese).
the moon is falling!!! it cried a tear that landed on the earth. you have 3 days! what do you do?
Are you as annoyed as I am at the Pasta Hut commercials?
