What can I do for the next few days?
I was going to join another tour to see: movie star homes, the wax museum, and the hollywood museum but after looking online I think I am wasting money to go to these places as they are boring and not worth the money. Why would I pay $$ to see the outside of houses?
Any suggestions or recommendations people have for places to go in hollywood? I would prefer if it was walking distance or close to the hotel so I don't have to pay outrageous taxi fairs.
**I'm at LA for a few days because I am taking a cruise that is departing from the LA port so I decided to get to LA a few days earlier to do the tourist thing
I've been charged with decorating the movie theatre I work at for the release of Star Trek in IMAX next week. As part of my decor I came up with the idea to do some word art, as it were, with iconic phrases from Star Trek, like, "Beam me up, Scotty!" Do you have any suggestions? I have, "Beam me up, Scotty!" "Live long and prosper," and, "Set phasers to stun."
If you were paying $15 a ticket to see this movie what would you want to see decoration wise?
My co-worker and I had an idea to turn our escalators into a transporter with some PVC pipe and blue tarp. Will this turn out poorly?
Why does my back decide to start hurting when I'm drunk and tired and need sleep?
I have fibromyalgia, so I can't do anything about pain really. I have been out drowning my sorrows due to being dumped and I got in at 1am a bit worse for wear. I've sobered up and it's not 4am and this pain will not go away. I have super duper painkillers, cocodamol 30/500, when do you reckon it'd be ok for me to take them?
How many friends do you have and how many can you trust with a secret? What's a song that reminds you of good times? How would you define 'hipster' to someone who hasn't heard the word? Are there things on your computer you'd be embarrassed for someone to find? (Porn is a cop-out answer, I mean like poetry or Pokemon episodes* or something like that.) What are they?
I have a small problem, some of you may remember my fundraising question and this falls within the same category I think and here's some history.
On April 7th the fellow teammates and I started thinking up fundraising ideas to help our team make more money as a whole instead of individually. After I left they thought of putting together a speghtti Dinner for the 5th of may and the next day they started asking different companies to donate food and silent auction prizes and asked if i could get raffle tickets from where I worked (which I havent worked there in a while but I didn't feel the need to tell them as I was completely willing to go ask the manager anyway).
The next week they say they don't need the raffle tickets because they found some, but they ask for cups, small plates and napkins (almost 3 weeks ago). Than almost 2 weeks ago they say they don't need the cups and find napkins elsewhere but they would still like the plates than put linens on the list of stuff they wanted.
Meanwhile they are hearing from some of the companies they want to have stuff donated from are telling them that they dont do donations or that there wasnt enought notice time for the donations and the fellow teamates seem to be ok with not getting the donations.
So this past thursday I tell them that for the linens there was not enough notice (which the teammates asked for the week b4 and not a month or so before) and with the plates that the company doesnt do donations (which they have heard in the last 3 or so weeks).
So then I get this reply the next day from one of the teammates being completely hypocritical saying that I shouldve asked 4 weeks ago than it woulnt have been short notice and than saying that if i didnt want to be a part of the whole fundraisng thing i shouldve said something earlier. She and the fellow teammates heard the exact same thing from companies.
Edit to make it easier:
Fellow relay for life teamates and I are holding a fundraising dinner which was though up just less than a month ago for this tuesday. The past almost three weeks theyve been asking and saying they do than don't need things donated from where i formerly work (however they dont know i dont work there anymore). Each week it was something different they wanted.
Almost 2 weeks ago they ask for linens from this place and last thursday I told the teammates that the company need more notice on rental items and that they don't do donations which they have heard from different companies. One of the teammates berates me rather hypocrically saying it wouldnt have been short notice if i had asked 4 weeks ago when they "asked me to get this stuff", when in actuallity it was different stuff each week for 2-3 weeks before i told them.
so heres my questions
1. should i respond to her remarks? and if yes 2. how should I respond to her remarks?
My dog gets randomly scared. It used to be that if there was a sudden noise, she'd dart off, but now when it's perfectly quiet she'll randomly shoot up and run away as if something startled her. D: Any idea what might be wrong with her?
I cut the bottom corner of my palm on a metal piece in my car. The wound is red, inflamed, and painfully sore (with visible pus pockets..aka infected). What do you predict will happen to my hand in the next 24 hours?
Do you use inappropriate humor to soothe shitty situations?
What is a good vegetarian side dish for tacos? They already have seasoned black beans in them, so I don't really want to serve beans and rice on the side. I may do Spanish rice, but I don't know. I don't have enough ripe avocados for guacamole, though there will be avocado in the main dish.
Do tacos need a side dish, or do you just eat more tacos?
Today I was helped at the post office by a girl who was very excited to see me, knew pretty much everything about me and seemed like she really enjoyed catching up with me. Problem is, I have no freaking clue who she was, even though her FULL NAME was on her name tag.
Does this happen to you? What do you do in this situation - politely ask who they are or roll with it? I rolled with it and it was the hardest thing ever.
Do you think it's a waste to take a university course that you're interested in but wouldn't benefit your future career? What if you were unsure of what job you would want to have? Do you think that's okay to experiment with different classes or, again, is it a waste?
So I buy shampoos that happen to come in bottles with a push up top (like you push down on one end and the other pops up). The problem with these is that they ALWAYS pop open in my checked baggage and spill all over the plastic bag I put them in. Not only do I have to mop the goopy stuff off my razor and such, but I have to throw it away if and when it mixes with other goopy stuff from other bottles. I've tried taping the tops down and placing them ever so carefully in my suitcase so they won't get jostled around so much.
Can anyone think of a way to keep these bottles from popping open in my suitcase? I'm a bit loathe to put them into other bottles since thats wasting whatever doesn't move from one bottle to another.
How silly is it that my Dad refuses to use the blackberry his office has provided for him and pay for? Or that he refuses to let anybody else in my house use it?
For the past two years, a blackberry that my Dad's work gave him has been sitting in his suitcase. They pay for it every month. It has a GPS and internet and a phone. In general, my parents are kind of against technology. In our house, we have one cell phone that is used probably once a week to call home. When my Dad's boss offered to move a printer to his office, he declined...apparently because he enjoys getting up and walking to the printer, and it would be damaging to stay in the same room as the chemicals in the printer.
If you had been seeing someone (and by this I mean sleeping together both literally and figuratively, holding hands, spending a lot of time together) for 3 months, but in those 3 months they never brought up a conversation about relationship status, what would you assume that this person was to you? How would you introduce him to others?
I bought a ton of ground beef on Thursday with the intention of breaking it up and freezing it. I stuck it in the fridge while I did other stuff and forgot about it. Do you think it's still ok? Meat makes me really nervous.
How many people are in your household? How many bags of trash do you generate a week? How many gallons of milk do you go through a week? Loaves of bread a week?
Will you write a nice, detailed description of your experience, so that I can have ideas of what to do before I die?
The only thing I've done that I would consider "adventurous" was to ride the Goliath at Six Flags. It might not sound like much, but I have a big fear of heights and I'm typically pretty scared of roller coasters. The Goliath was crazy because it goes up over 200 feet and goes 70 mph. It also has a lift hill, rather than a launch, which means it takes forever for it to get started. During that eternity, I was freaking the hell out and seriously thought I was going to have a panic attack or something. I don't remember much of the ride after it finally got started, because I was so friggin' scared. I will never ride it again.
What song is stuck in your head? and if there's a reason, why?
"My Funny Valentine" from The Talented Mr. Ripley. because a friend of mine who usually has horrible fashion sense told me that he just bought a bunch of new clothes. Even though I tease him sometimes about his dumb clothes, it makes me kind of sad that he's actually going to wear decent clothes for a change.
While we're at it, why is that?
Care to go off on an emotional tangent that has nothing to do with anything?
I'm planning on getting fitter this summer, and I need something to push me. I'm thinking of using the Missy Elliot method and seeing pictures of very fit women which will push me to become like them Who do you think is the fittest woman ? post pictures ?
Next school year, I'm signed up for a bunch of AP classes: US History, English, Spanish and studio art. Am I going to die? I know there's a ton of reading involved for the history and english, but what should I expect? According to the course description, AP studio art focuses on portfolio building. but has anyone taken that? what does that consist of?
i'm gunna sound like a creep but oh well. where can i find pictures of ridiculous, slutty superhero fancy dress? i'm thinking pants over tights (knickers over pantyhose in american, i think) and stuff like that. and ideas for guys.
What is Brock university like? My friend is doing study abroad there for a year, and was wondering what locals thought of the school - the study abroad office is understandably going to be a bit biased, and we were wondering if there was anything she should know before crossing the border.
My study abroad program for this summer just got canceled. I've spent the past year preparing for it - Researching the subject I would be studying, reading about the places I would visit, learning the language, etc.
My school offered me two choices: Transfer my deposit and application to a specific program that still has seats available, or get refunded and don't go.
The other program is in another country, studying another subject. I have no interest or background experience with either, nor am I even remotely prepared for it. If I went on this trip, I would be going just for the sake of getting abroad, but it just isn't what I wanted. It doesn't strike me as interesting or even relevant to my subject (I'm going to teach high school history).
If I don't go, there is a very, very good chance that I will never study abroad. Or even go abroad. My scholarships expire once I become a graduate student, which will be next semester. But at least I will be saving what money I do have.
TQC, what would you do?
If you don't care: Did you ever study abroad in college? Where did you go?
I was at a friends party when this song came on..... I was so excited I turned to this guy and said can you believe it....its ( ) singing ( )!!!! He did not seem impressed. I am crazy or do you like this version of this song?
BTW it is Ella Fitzgerald singing in the Sunshine of Your Love The music players pops up you don't have to leave the page. I just wanted it to be a fun surprise! I did not know people were going to freak out about it and get seriously angry.
I'm giving my friend two gift cards for her birthday but...that's boring. Is there a creative way to give them to her? Should I throw something else in the gift bag? (I saw some cute socks at Target but...I'm probably the only person who gets excited over socks)
I'm also making the cupcakes for her party but...I feel like I need *more*
What was your favorite gift from your last birthday?
This is a long shot, but a while back when (I believe it was poetry_obscene) did one of the "Would you Wear It?" polls and everyone oved almost everything. They were cute and they did custom fittings. What was this website? I forgot to bookmark it and I want to buy stuff! Thank you, oh_honestly_!
A friend of mine was at a drive-in (It was a long time ago) with her boyfriend and he eventually put his hand on her tit. Being a good Catholic girl, she thought:- 1. She would have to marry him. 2. He might as well have access to the other one as well.
They did both. . . . What's love got to do with it?
Have you ever heard of anyone who got married for unlikely reasons?
I cannot find a job. I have applied, to date, to 23 places...with no luck. (I'm a college student - can only do part-time) It seems like there are tons of spots open for delivery drivers, but I'm kind of scared to be one. Has any other female here ever been a delivery driver? My dad thinks I'll get robbed/kidnapped/raped.
1. How do you (or did you, if you're too mature now) define the "bases" in a sexual sense? As in if someone told you they got to first base, second base, third base, etc. which sex act do you associate with which base?
2. Anne and Elizabeth are roommates in a $1550 2BR in Brooklyn. Anne pays $750 a month and Elizabeth pays $800 cos her room is a little bigger, and they split utilities, groceries, etc., 50/50. If Elizabeth's brother comes to live with them for 2 months over the summer, and sort of lives both in the living room and in Elizabeth's room, what is now the fair way to split the rent?
okay so i just bought an xbox 360!!! yay! i ordered fall out 3 and im looking online for mores games to buy and on their website they have arcade games and then regular games. what is the difference?
also i know i asked this the other day but what games should i buy for my new xbox??? i like adventure RPGs where i can walk around a vast land and explore and i also like games like resident evil or just games that are a lot of fun.
Moore's Law, as explained by Wikipedia, states that the number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit has increased exponentially, doubling approximately every two years. Can anyone think of alternative examples of this in other realms? Things such as YouTube videos have already been suggested. I appreciate your quick and well-thought response.
What is the strangest coincidence you can think of?
Mine is that my dad and his sister are twins, and were born on opposite ends of midnight March 18th and March 19th, so they don't share a birthday, but my dad DOES share March 19th as a birthday with his older brother, born exactly one year before.
I live in Iowa and haven't been to many place's sadly.
What I want to know, is Las Vegas all its cracked up to be? I have a handful of friends that have been there and they thinks its the most amazing place on earth!?! I'm not a gambler and IMO if you want to drink yourself stupid you can pretty much do that anywhere right? You don't have to fly to Vegas for a weekend to do that.
Do any of you in TQC have any go to places? A place you would tell others they must put on their to do list before they die?
What are five songs that really get you really energized?
my current list is as follows:
- What She Came For by Franz Ferdinand - Fel Del Av Gården by MOVITS! (I found this yesterday, and it is amaaaazing) - Little Green Bag by George Baker Selection - Mr. Jung Stuffed by Man Man - La Breeze by Simian
