Tell me, TQC, what should I call these?
( Collapse )
1. Does your GPS lady (are any of the voices male?) have a name? I named mine Piper.
2. What's your favorite kitten photo?
i don't really NEED anything currently, and am going to browse at the mall, sephora, and target tomorrow.
so, inspire me. what would you do with $150? (links for online shopping encouraged!)
- When you have to sneeze but you can't vs. an itch on your back that you can't reach
- Getting caught cheating vs. Catching somebody cheat (S.O.)
- Going blind vs. going deaf
- Nauseous/stomach pain vs. horrible headache
What is your favorite quote from that movie?
I can't remember the last time someone told me goodnight or sweet dreams.
When was the last time you were tucked into bed?
Example: da bomb, groovy, bees knees
Or what new slang terms do you want to create?
how many positions do you go through every time you have sex?
do you feel that it's better to change positions a lot of times or to just stay in one that's working out pretty well?
2. What are other animals that you wouldn't expect to be cute but are?
3. What pets do you have?
I circle a big "P" in the blank space for the day.
What do you do when you're so upset, you can't sleep?
Does anyone else have a mom who they don't get along with too well? Did you still call her for Mother's Day?
Yes, and it was awkward, but... yeah. Whatever.
Where can I buy cheap shoes that won't fall apart? I'm looking for a pair of black ballet flats that will last me more than a month.
2)Your thoughts on homeopathic medicine?
3)Do you watch more tv on your tv or on your computer?
-Panda Express (awesome chinese food)
-Steak Escape (Hot Sandwiches with meat in them and barbeque sauce)
-Sbarros (Pizza place)
-Daphne's (Greek food)
-Rubio's (Fish Tacos)
-Poopy Grill (Overpriced on-campus food place)
Where should I eat?
Would you please recommend some really incredible techno songs for me? Something really intense, like the kind of music you can have incredible sex to? If you don't like techno, any type will suffice.
The place I listen to was just talking about the Rihanna nude photos, and I told them how OhNoTheyDidn't confirmed that it was Rihanna and Chris Brown in the hotel rooms and they HADNT heard of it! They asked on air if anyone had heard of it and everyone was like "yeah, no" and it took me out of my little livejournal world.
My question is, do youe ver talk about lj like people should know about it? Do you talk about it irl or is this your secret thing?
Which TV series do you think went on (or is going on) too damn long?
At my job we have had the same mailman for 20 years. He is a super guy and is retiring.
We want to make him some sort of fake certificate for years of service and I am trying to think of some catchy phrases to put on it... perhaps involving the "Neither rain nor..." quote or not. His name is Stu if that helps with rhyming. Will you give me ideas of catchy phrases to put on the certificate?
Srs and non srs for sure :)
And if you don't give a damn. How do you fix your coffee?
How do you turn that off? It keeps coming up with stack overflow errors and is just generally a pain in the ass.

2 weeks have gone by and I still haven't heard anything. Exactly a week ago, I followed up by kindly asking if she could get back to me soon so that I could finalize my summer plans. I STILL haven't heard back from her.
Should I send a follow-up email again, or just forget about this internship and make other plans?
What chocolate bar is the best one?
Can you complete this sentence? "The best skittles come in the _____ colored bag."
If your SO slept with someone in your family, would you try to forgive them and stay together?
Cookbook? Memoir? Instruction manual? Fiction? Horror? Romance? Children's story? History book?
If you'd like, write a quick synopsis of this future book.
What does "shacking up" mean to you?
What do you do to them?
how many hours do you work per week?
How crazy is that? I don't know if anyone has talked about it in the last few days because I've been without power. I'm at work now and thankfully my boss has internet!
I won't have power at home until the end of this week, beginning of next week. How bad does that suck?
My husband won't let me use the chainsaw. He's a douche, y/y?
Buy a book and sell it back for almost the same price at the end of the semester?
Rent a book for cheaper, but get no money back?
I was in a few months ago, still looking for a job after quitting them, and one of the managers asked if I wanted to work there again. I both loved and hated this job, but it was money which I am in desperate need of. So I said sure. I did the online application, and called in when I was supposed to.
H, the manager that has to rehire me, went to another store for like 3 weeks before I could be hired on. J, the manager who offered me the position answered the phone when I called today to see if she was in. He explained to me that I would be taken on, but that I would be the on call girl, and be doing mornings since I live so close to the Petco.
Thing is, I don't anymore. I now live 40 minutes away from the Petco. And I need a job not one half shift per week and then be on call whenever someone calls in sick or they are swamped. I don't know how to explain to them that I have moved, and that I think it's shitty that after a year of great service (Over 3 customer compliments and zero customer complaints. And those customer compliments were the written ones, but I had several people ask for a manager to praise me to them. I did my job well, and I honestly cared about helping people decide their pets.) that I get stuck being the lowest level of the ladder. Particularly after H talking to me about being a head of animal department and telling me how much she needed someone like me in her staff since she has all new people except for herself, J, T, K, and L. And all but one of those people is in a manager position.
So, what the fuck can I do? J didn't let me get a word in about where I live or what they wanted from me, and I am so beat from looking for a job. Should I just take it? Should I decline and try to find something else? Should I try to get a different position/negotiate? Are they taking advantage of the fact I obviously haven't found a job so they think I'll be vulnerable?
Where are some good places to look for a job? I've tried PetSmart, Pet Food Express, Best Buy, IHOP, Applebees, a shit ton of office places, Comcast, Verizon, Target, K-Mart. God knows where else. I just ran around and threw my resume at places. But I need a job, and I'm at wits end. Halp!
if yeah, what's your favorite song?
mine's "Lobster Bucket!"
When you wake up, what kind of person would you be? How would you be different? WHY? How would you be the same? WHY?
It was in my friend's car! :D
( Collapse )
What do you really want to eat right now?
If this happened to you, how would you cheer yourself up? Or if this has happened to you, what did you do next?
Tell the truth.
the pill didn't make a difference in my skin before, but without it, i wasn't having a cycle most of the time. well, now it comes every 6-8 weeks and my skin is worse than ever. perhaps these events are related!
i don't have a drug plan or planned parenthood, so i can't do both.
There is something in the air.
Will you post a picture/gif/anything that makes you laugh everytime you see it?
2)Do you prefer focusing on one thing or doing a lot of things at once?
3)How do you download music?
4)Have you ever been on a houseboat?
What are some websites where I can buy cute dresses? (I already hit up ModCloth, Forever21, and Old Navy)
What are some awesome summer tunes?
Which is the proper order in which to do them?
Also assume that having sex IN the shower is not an option.
No srsly it's not an option IT'S A SMALL SHOWER and also it's slippery. >:o
Her writing samples contain multiple cases of one of my grammatical pet peeves--the misused apostrophe. She's missing several apostrophes in plural possessive structures (for example, writing "Americans" where it ought to be "Americans'") and, in one particularly shocking instance, seems to have formed a nominative plural with 's.
Just as irritating to me, she's used "they" as a singular form--essentially, as a synonym for "he or she."
I recognize that the apostrophe mistakes would likely slip through an automated spell check. I also recognize that the second mistake is really, really common nowadays. But it's still wrong, and it hurts my eyes to look at it. In my book, either of these mistakes is enough to make me conclude that her writing skills are not strong enough for the task at hand.
What do you think--should I call her anyway, even though it gives me a bad feeling that I'm going to have to copy-edit everything she writes for me?
ETA: I'm going to wait a week. If I don't get an applicant with flawless writing samples, I'm going to bring her in for an interview. While I have some lingering concerns, and will tell her not to use singular "they" in anything she writes for me, her work experience, enthusiasm, and good recommendations make her a strong candidate apart from these relatively small glitches. Wish her, and me, luck.
its going to be hard to get them to create accounts or wahtever (theres 25 of them), so the simpler, the better. i thought about doing it on livejournal with anonymous posting or something. any suggestions would be great.
I have this friend who loves the TV show Friends intensely and I cannot understand why. I decided that I'd try to turn him onto something better, which in my opinion was Battlestar Galactica.
His complaint about the show was "homo's, robots with feeligs, religious stuff, there's a bunch of stuff"
After finishing it, he decided that Friends is still the better show. Why is this? :(
Also, I am still obviously very upset that people are allowed to have different opinions than me. Someone needs to do something about this and quick.
Which one would you start and finish first?
What's some disappointing news you've received lately?
what for, and how long?
got any stories.
I changed my account settings to US Mountain Standard Time but on my friends page, it still says retrosoup's post was at 10:53 instead of 2:53, and so on. How do I fix this? Am I just an idiot? Or does eljay hate me?
I have tried refreshing. And I did click "Save Changes".
ETA: Does it go by the poster's time zone? If so, why does the Account Settings call it "viewing options"?
has anyone tried heroin
2. Whats your favourite Manics album?
3. What is your favourite album by any band/solo artist?
This comm. always knows how to brighten my day.
thanks. I don't like an empty inbox. =3
Island, Frankenstein, and two Tank Girl compliations.
When I first joined there were debates all over the place.
Or is it me, have I changed?
Well, where is my capo?
Last thing I remember, I put it in some kind of bag whilst in a hurry, and thought to myself "I'll never remember that it's in here," and sure enough, I don't know where it is.
Are you going to have surgery in the future? for what?
What's the most unusual pet you've ever own?
1. black with gold lining
2. white with blue/yellow/pink patterns
which pair should i get TQC? both are the same price.
ETA: I BOUGHT THE BLACK ONES! thank you TQC! it was easier to follow your advice than my boyfriend's lol.
eta: if you don't know or don't care, do you ever post to tqc because your flist is dead and you're bored?
What is the scariest moment you have ever had?
What is the most unusual costume you ever wore to a Halloween party?
2. What -- if anything -- are you looking forward to this summer?
If you don't know, will you tell me about you hair? Do you like its natural texture, color, etc? How do you typically style it? How does your hair make you FEEL?
eta: if you find it, will you post it for me please?
What was it for? Did you have any bad side effects?
How much did you get paid?
TL;DR: My friend who I have known for a long time but am not particularly close with is having a wedding reception the same weekend that I already have other plans which I cannot "cancel and do some other time." The wedding reception has a lot of pain-in-the-ass stipulations on it and will be populated with a bunch of people I don't quite care for. Should I go? Do I have a right to be annoyed with all of this bullshit?
OR IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT ANY OF THIS,
What's the most fun you've ever had at a wedding? What made it so awesome?
I WILL TRY TO STOP POSTING SO MUCH.
is the same personality trait that makes someone not witty make someone not like seinfeld?
everyone: what's your favorite color?
how does facebook determine who shows up in your "people you may know"? i thought it was just people you have a lot of mutual friends with, but my aunt keeps showing up and we have NO mutual friends. she has my mother added, but i don't have any mutual friends with my mother, either. THIS MAKES NO SENSE (and is also kind of creepy).
Ever had mono? How was your experience with it?
I was diagnosed on exam week, and the worst part is the exhaustion that's kept me in bed all day besides an hour at the doctor's, and the pressure from the swollen lymph nodes trying to push my head off my neck. The doctor had me cancel all my exams so I could stay in bed, so now I have to make those up next semester. Ugh.
I need some new music to listen to. Something raunchy or dancy, but just rock-and-roll enough. Any suggestions? God, just anything that's not about being in love would be fine.
How is your day going?
How has your Monday been?
Edit: Yes, I accidentally the whole post.
It's work safe, though maybe not brain safe.
...On TQC or any of its spin-offs?
Did you ever have to work with or deal with someone that had the worlds most annoying voice?
How did you keep from either strangling that person or losing your damn mind?
1. When did you find your first gray hair?
2. If you do go gray, will you dye it?
3. Do you think dyeing your hair to cover gray is vain/ageist?
"Just shows what kind of person you really are."
- In summary, I found out a former co-worker was saying untrue things. I gave her the opportunity to come clean, she then proceeded to hurl insults at me via email with the last one stating this. I stopped responding about 2 messages in and left it with ' ok take care'.
can you guys give me some upbeat and/or happy songs, please?
Are there any shows you plan on going to soon?
I am going to see Camera Obscura in June and Death Cab/Teagan and Sarah/The New Pornographers in July. Yay!
Who played the last show you went to?
Harvey Danger, although it was a 20 second glimpse due to a night of catastrophes.
How was your night, non-House watchers?
The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court
What's the last non-fiction book you finished that you wouldn't recommend?
Devil in the White City. Seriously, a dozen people recced it to me, but I thought the structure of the book was incredibly annoying and some parts were so unnecessarily long winded. I'm not that fascinated by serial killers either, so I guess that's a part of the problem.
2)Why are ads written like that?
3)What's your mood?
Non-srs question: If you were my period, where would you be?
And I already asked the vagina community. No help.
What about Ramen seasoning (instead of mixing it)?
If not, would you eat either?
To win the million, you would have to go all the way to the end. No skill involved, no strategy, just dumb luck. And the odds are ALWAYS against the contestant.
Can you wiggle your nose?
How about your ears?
(without any help from your fingers or anything!)
What's your most useless talent?
I have this deep feeling of sadness but I cannot find its origin.
Will you remind me why I'm sad?
what's your favorite 90's music video? (i'm on a youtube rampage)
I often lose scissors in my hand or pen/cils in my ear.
WHAT IS THIS?
Best comeback for a creepy/old/gross/undesirable jerk that won't leave you alone?
3) nails on a chalkboard
4) roadkill, seen from a car
5) spoiled/moldy food
What is something else that you really dislike, and why?
( Collapse )
are you guys blind?!?
Edit: Wave that abnormal flag! Can you touch your tongue to your nose? Turn your feet around backward?
On my desk is a Pringles can that's labeled in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, and appears to have been meant for South American markets, but ended up here in the U.S. by mistake; I use it to hold spare change. Do you have a container that you dump spare change into? What kind is it?
Are you imagining how much it would hurt to put a toothpick under your big toenail and kick the wall as hard as you can? Are you curling your toes at the thought?
Better question, how do I get rid of them in my apartment??? They're gross and won't leave me alone and I cleaned about 50 times!! (OK, more like twice, but still.)
Ex: you learn an obscure word that you've never seen before, only to read it later in a blog.
Is it just because you are aware of the information that it now seems to occur in your life with increasing frequency?
I'm excited for my mom coming up tomorrow, having lunch, and taking half my stuff back so move-out goes easier.
I have a class that I have achieved a C- in (just barely). I could take an optional replacement final (ORF) and that score will replace my lowest score - but - this ORF will replace my lowest score even if I do worse, and the ORF is harder than all of the other exams. I need a 3.0 GPA so every class counts, but if I do worse and end up not passing the class I'd have to take it a 3rd time and it sucks.
What would you do????
Would you take the ORF?
For those who are above scholastic queries, Grape Ape or Magilla the Gorilla?
mine: yahoo email, cascade email, lj.com, tqc, shelfari.com, google calendar, library, wellsfargo.com, pandora.com, stumbleupon.com
Have you, or anyone you know purchased a ShamWow! and/or Slap Chop?
flipping someone's car in a mob
burning down a recently built walmart before it opens
(no one gets physically hurt in either situation)
Has this happened to anyone else?
I had no idea I consumed corn in the last week, but I'm glad to be well informed now!
Did you ever encounter a word in reading that you'd never heard in conversation, and pronounce it embarrassingly wrong in public?
What should we cheers to?
2) for uni students who are not working part time - what's your weekly budget? minus rent and all that boring stuff. i can't figure out how much mine should be.
3) what is your favourite Benefit product?
What would cause only those two diamonds to show as a greenish color? If it matters the six stones are inset and the two that happened to be greenish were on the same end.
