Considering it's fish-free, would you go to just about any sushi place for a vegetable roll? Or would you still go to a good quality place?

When was the last time you went?
How did it go?
If yes, how many?
Would you like to share a picture of your tattoo?
Would you ever let a friend give you a tattoo?
I would be watching a youtube video, then the audio would cut out, and the video would pause. It would start to play a few seconds later and do it all over again. I'm thoroughly confused, and wondering why it does that.
When I go to put the volume up or down, it lags as well, when Its going through this moment. I can't play music or anything, either when it happens, because the weird (low) clicking sounds make it stop.
I've tried re-starting my computer, and sometimes that works, but not all the time. I just don't understand, and would like to know if anyone knows what might be wrong?
...assuming, of course, that I don't need to bring it to the Genius Bar at an Apple store. I'm trying to avoid that for now.
Thank you in advance! ♥
2)What is your editing process?
3)Is May a rainy month in your area?
Should I take some tylenol in hopes that it will stop me from having the mother of all headaches when i wake up?
What are your plans for tomorrow?
I have a meeting about my thesis, then shopping and lunch with my friend.
1. Do you believe you are free?
1B. If you do, what would it take to prove otherwise?
2. Is it possible that slavery never really went away, but instead only changed form?
3. Is is possible that much of what you have been taught is misinformation designed to keep you fearful, docile, and obedient?
4. If you've ever realized you're a slave and concluded that everyone should be free if they aren't harming others, then what, if anything, have you decided to do about it?
do you think it's weird or awkward to do this to a guy? or if you are a guy, does this weird you out? do you think nipple-play is strictly a female thing? opinions please?
I fail, 3 & 5 are the same!
Auto-Tune the News #2 is currently my favorite.

personally i hate jackass but thought wildboyz was interesting, informative and funny lol. who knew ay?
Any idea what this website might be?
1. Any one else in the same boat with me?
2. Where do you think all of the notifications are going? On a spiritual journal to the great cathedrals of Europe? That spot on the Island on LOST where all those notebooks went to? Carnegie's Deli for a pastrami on rye? Or is it some place else?
3. Favorite mad/eccentric scientist;
a. Doc Brown (Back to the Future)
b. Walter Bishop (Fringe)
c. Daniel Faraday (LOST)
d. Dr. Strangelove (Dr. Strangelove.)
e. Other (If so, who?)
The word "serious" coming from the guy I'm seeing. Oh boy. Which sparked the whole "what do you want?" conversation.
ETA: Since, apparently, some of you don't have those moments, can you describe who is in/what's going on in your default icon?
Simon Amstell from Never Mind the Buzzcocks imitating Donny Tourette from Towers of London ("Cause his helmet turned blue?") and protecting himself from the swine flu.
I need to find more pictures of this girl
What do I google to find her?
Where can I find more of her?
Any other terrible pictures like this you can share is greatly appreciated.
Nvm, he sent a picture of carrot top to win the bet.
What is the worst internet picture ever?
Every time I try to use it it burns my head or my throat. I never fucking do it right. Do you have any tips for me? :'(
i should get off TQC and go to bed, y?
Tomorrow I am going into Best Buy (where I got it) and try to get them to give me a new one instead of trying to referb a death dealing hunk of shit. I've heard they'll want to send it off (for up to 30 days) and if I try to send it back to LG, they won't even give me a loaner and will have it up to 14 business days. I bought it on 2.18.09, so it isn't even 3 months old (also, I have the receipt, box, etc and their Black Tie Plan).
HOW CAN I CONVINCE THEM TO JUST GIVE ME A NEW ONE INSTEAD OF TRYING TO PLACATE ME WITH A LOANER AND THE PROBABILITY THAT THIS PHONE WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE MY LIFE HELL? So far my thoughts include a pipe bomb to the face of anyone who tries to negotiate with me, but I don't know how effective that would be.
If that doesn't apply to you, what did you/will you have for breakfast?
What are you currently saving up for, or what have you recently saved up and bought?

What color top are you wearing today?
I wouldn't mind passing on in Paris, Bangkok, or Istanbul, personally, ideally in a chaise longue under an umbrella on some rooftop or balcony with a nice view, or in an old wooden house along a canal.
What should I do?
Tonight I'm cooking up some chicken breasts in red pepper & garlic marinade, with "Italian seasoned" oven fries (olive oil + basil and thyme), and a salad with tomato/oregano vinaigrette.
What kind of wine would go with all of that? I don't like dry wines with a lot of tannin in them (my bf and his brother will drink "whatever").
If I buy a loaf of bread for dinner, which should I get: walnut-currant or apple-beer bread?
What is your favorite episode of The Twilight Zone and/or The Outer Limits?
ETA: My doctor asked me to get some ["routine"] bloodwork done today or tomorrow, "whenever [you] have the time." Should I get it over with today after lunch, or put it off until tomorrow afternoon?
How do I start over? :(
I used to be super social and have lots of great friends, but due to some slow changes in mah life that has changed. Now, I look forward to going to work for my social interaction. It's stress-free because you can kind of deflect any awkwardness in conversation by actually focusing on your job. I totally love being at work more than being at home when I have to worry about bills and problems and stuff. Is that very weird?
I am getting Spore (the game) in the mail today! Is it so awesome?? DO YOU LOVE IT???
ETA Inspired by MTV's "The Phone", but it's not a new concept.
do you have any idea?
ETA: i'm watching court TV and this couple is disputing their relationship. apparently the woman cheated and he knew it because he "smelled sex in the air". have you ever smelled sex in the air? if so, what's it like? do you think this is as hilarious as i think it is?

srs, non srs answers are ok
Personal experiences? Know a friend of a friend of a cousin of the aunt on your mother's side who has one?
Will I accidently suck up a pet with it?
Is it terrible that half my icons consist of Rpattz?
What is your favorite icon, and why?
He just put them on, sat down, and the seam split down the thigh. They're the right size, it was just crappy stitching. They've never been washed.
Do you think Old Navy will let me exchange them? The closest store is half an hour away and I'll go out there if you guys think the odds are good (awkward internet girl doesn't like using the phone). I don't have the receipt, or the tags. Or even the bag.
ETA: Problem solved. They'll exchange on the spot if they're defective, or send me a merchandise credit in the mail if not. Either way they will take them back. The question still stands, though:
Don't you hate when you buy something and it falls apart?
I totally feel like everyone is misunderstanding what I'm saying today and it's driving me nuts.
I started a job the 20th of April, and the place seems mildly shady. Our pay periods are the 1-15 and 15-End of month. It's the 7th. I haven't been paid yet for the 20th-30th (nor has anyone.)
Does that seem like a really long time to run checks for anyone else?
How long does it usually take you to be paid after the pay period?
Speaking of being paid, I haven't filled out a W-4, two and a half weeks in.
What would you say the chances that they're withholding taxes are?
What would you guess are the chances I'm being paid under the table?
(I'd say 1:1000 that they're withholding taxes, and about 100:1 that the check is just a handwritten check that they give me, or worse.)
Why do I think it's Friday?
2)what exemplifies your city?
3)what are you geeked out about lately?
Persona 4, pliers.
The only tests are OPEN BOOK.
There is not enough make up to go around.
They teach me a lot of shit that I don't need to know. for ex. braiding
Because there is a shortage of equipment it's constantly being stolen.
The play the radio stupidly loud ALL THE TIME.
so...should I stick with it anyway and just deal with the crap (it is only for a year)?
Or should I give up and just learn this shit from books and forget the certificate?

What was the last thing that you got really excited about, then something changed and it couldn't happen anymore?
I found out there was a class for doula certification in Brooklyn next week. Only it costs $600, so I have to wait until November when I have that sort of money saved up. :*(
What email program do you use?
Are you in any communities like that?
EDIT: Would you be interested in coming along?
Here's the scoop on the shows:
Atlanta: I can't go, but my friend can, and whilst I have seen John perform live, she has not. And she can pick her own seat on the website. On a weekend, so we can stay the night in ATL. It's about five bucks more expensive than the Nashville show.
Nashville: We can both go, but we can't pick our seats on the website, so we might be sitting in the way far back. On a Monday, so getting home for work the next day would be a pain. It's about five bucks cheaper than the Atlanta show.
What show should we choose?
Never mind, we're going to Nashville. lol.
So uh, what's up?
What is it and how hard would it be to BS my way through an interview on it over a weekend?
Google has failed, and only tries to sell me things.
if you don't care about that, what's your favorite TV-court show?
so now, HR has made up a "cleaning duty" list, where every thursday, someone from the office is assigned to clean the kitchen.
is this normal?
is this fair?
why should i have to clean up someone else's mess? i clean up my own messes. it's not my fault other people are not capable of cleaning up after themselves.
-edit- they posted up a list of the schedule of when everyone's clean up date is. would it be immature of me to post an annonymous note voicing my concerns about this?

What did you do today?
If not on TV, maybe anywhere online where it's free and somewhat decent quality? Thanks! :)
I found out today that I have to have one, and I'm a big pussy and a workaholic so I'm far from pleased. :(
ETA: do you know of any software?
i bought a writing tablet and was on yourfonts.com and wrote everything out, and realized after all that, that i had to buy it. :(
what are you obsessed with?
When you are moving, what is the first thing you pack? The last?
what would you do?
Does anyone else think this is as funny as I do?
I ask because when i went to the first interview i wore a sport shirt, which is a long sleeve, button up, no tie kind of shirt. And the rest of the guys that were there had polos. I felt over dressed.
Edit: Made my decision, thanks for the help.
For those who don't care: Isn't subtlesphinx gorgeous?
yes, it's a perfectly valid position.
2)what sex position is overrated?

any bad experience?
if not, do you know anyone who had an akward /weird experience?
1b. are you actually able to watch tv anymore?
ours did and nothing comes in anymore. it's like network television is a severely scratched DVD. i haven't watched anything besides DVDs and Hulu in months and i hate it. i hate watching TV on the computer. i want 30 Rock on my tv, damnit :( and fuck me if Batman Returns isn't on tv right now, too. blurgh.
What should I name them?
There are three boys and one girl.
I want all the names to relate- like the Ninja Turtles, but I already have a Venus Fly Trap named after those. :D
Also, I just noticed that I can't scroll because there isn't a scroll bar.
How do I get my bars back?
I would Google but I can't obviously.
ETA that I'm on Windows Vista.

ETA: what is mean is this: you want to go somewhere? DO IT. You need dental work/a visit to the doctor? GO. Sure, it might suck, you might get a little freaked out, but if you're an adult, you DO IT.
(different story if you've got an actual disorder or whatnot.)
I already googled. I can't figure out what to say.
It's for a job at ChuckECheese :|
ETA* I haven't worked since '05, so there's a huge gap in employment history on my resume. Should I put that I was in school & now doing the full-time parent thing on my resume somewhere? (Where?) Or should I just wait & see, if I do get the interview, if it's asked?
a) Go to medical school in Oregon so I can be with my boyfriend?
b) Go to my first choice which is 20 minutes away from my house?
I've lived in the same city my entire life, never even considered moving until now. HAAAALP.
Nobody from here is affected by them, are they? I hope not.

so I'm moving to Germany on the 21st of May. I'm going to live on the countryside near the swiss border, with this great hippie women and her three young kids in a huge villa built in 1802, which I'll have my own apartment in. I'm staying for a year.
but heres the thing; I don't speak any german. none. at all.
should I study like crazy and see how much I can learn before I go? or not worry about it?
once there, should I; take a german class? or get a private tutor? or not worry about it?
In my country is not rude to ask someone's age when you meet them in person, why do Americans consider it's rude to do so?
So, TQC, should I climb up into bed and hope they get the hint, or politely ask them to leave, or just start stabbing people? Other suggestions also welcome. Srs/non-srs!
But I don't have anyone to go with :(
None of my friends really listen to them, and aren't willing to shell out $85 (or something like that) to see them on a weekday night. I'm not seeing anyone seriously enough to forsee a future in August.
Should I go alone? Is that lame?
Any Depeche Mode fans in NYC? I'LL BUY YOU DINNER!
What was the last birthday gift that you bought for someone?
Who was it for?
pigs in a blanket?
ants on a log?
eggy in a basket?
However, one certain element is the ability to speak one's own language correctly. In America, this would mean speaking English with little or no accent, displaying mastery of such intricacies as subject-predicate agreement, having a broad vocabulary, and using minimal slang.
This is only one element of being "cultured" ... what are some others? What books does a cultured person read, what music do they listen to, etc?
This time, though, the only responses I have had have been from robots. They all claim to be well-educated American or English women currently living overseas and planning to move here. The funny thing is, they don't ask for anything. One of them asked for our mailing address so they could send us a money order, but that doesn't seem very sinister. They could get that from Google if they really tried. The rest of them didn't even ask.
What the hell, TQC? What do these bots want from me? I just can't imagine what kind of scam this could possibly lead to.
I haven't even watched that show in over a year because it's so crappy now, but damn, it got me.

If someone said you were like a god to them, what are they saying about you?
Based on this, do you think getting a perm to try to get some shape in my hair would be a good thing or a very bad thing? It's either that or attempting thermal reconditioning again (which worked once but didn't work the next two times I tried it), because I need my hair to be either straight or curly, dammit!
(I'm in NYC, so if you could recommend stores that are also in NYC, that would be great. Thanks!)

There is 1 person I would meet if given the chance and she was a friend of my brother. They also met on LJ.
I am bone tired- finals are next week. I have been working really hard all week, getting up early and going to bed late. I studied intently all day today until the evening, then I went and played soccer for 2 hours. I am beat.
I could finish my paper tonight, but it would require an extraordinary amount of effort and it may not be as good as it could be if I just did it tomorrow with a fresh mind. I could do it tomorrow but if I come across any bumps or blocks, I will be extra pressed for time (but I don't think this will happen). However, I don't have anything to do tomorrow so I could devote the whole day to writing it. I've written papers the night before they were due before, and I usually do well, but never have I written a paper ON the day it was due, so the thought of doing that makes me feel weird.
If you were me, what would you do?
I keep getting minor whiplash from turning my head to sneeze so I don't get phlegm on my monitor and keyboard.
I mean it in the sense that you do something polite, and they say, "thank you, sweetie." Or you make a mistake, and they say, "That's okay, sweetie". Not in a patronizing or perverted way at all.
Should they love and accept your flaws or tell you about your flaws and help you to change them?

She was 16 and so drunk she was nearly three times over the legal limit.
Is the railroad at fault for having a large gap?
Is it totally fucked up that the newspaper didn't mention this girl was drunk until a few months into the investigation?
If you saw this happen, would you contact the newspaper or police about it or mind your own business?
