What's with all the pollution face mask thingies on icons?
My ex of 1 day has sent me a message saying more or less, 'you said we could be friends, why aren't you being my friend?'
I'm not the only one who thinks it's completely ridiculous to suggest being friends after so short a time am I?
How do I convince my travel buddy to go with me to Kowloon Hong Kong to look at awesome buildings (one being the building where they filmed The Dark Knight) and visit one of the largest malls in the city instead of looking for a non-polluted beach?
I'm making brownies and the recipe called for 4 for eggs but I only had 3. I used the 3 and didn't add anything in place of the 4th egg. They are baking right now, will they be gross?

Would you ever consider being a dominatrix for a living?

(d) something else entirely?
I'm only 19 and all my roommates are 21. So I offered to be their designated driver tonight and drop them off at the bar and stay up to wait for them to call to come pick them up.
My roommate texts me to come get them. Then when I leave and get there he tells me to go home. Which I do after telling them to get in my car (via texts). I get home to have them tell me to come back and I do. Then they tell me to go home again.
WTF? Am I being irrationally angry or does that seem like a load of bullshit to you all also.
If you care less, what is your favorite time of day, and why? ex. 3pm.
Do you name your pets?
If the species is (in general; i.e. dogs) name trainable, why not?
If the species is not (in general; i.e. cats) name trainable, why?
Will gradually (as in, over a few weeks/months) unlocking a large amount of posts in my LJ set to my view only bog my friend's F-lists up? Even if these posts were posted all in one day/over a period of a few days prior to starting to unlock them?
Should I have Steak and Potato soup or New England Clam Chowder?
What was the last thing you ate?
I woke up drunk, smelly, nauseous, and only remembering the most embarrassing bits of what happened at last night's cast party :(
What's eating you, today?
Also, what can I do (if anything) to relieve this nausea? Going back to sleep is not an option.
I am interning for an educational institute and sometimes I have to e-mail students before the semester begins and ask them questions about what their level of a language they are at so we can place them in the proper class. Well, my boss has just asked me to e-mail this girl that I happen to know because we were camp counselors together two years ago at a language immersion camp for this language.
Normally when I send an e-mail like this to students I say something like:
Dear blah blah,
My name is blah blah from blah blah. In order to assure you are put in the right level of language course, please inform me what previous experience you've had with the language and send documentation, etc.
Well, I don't think this girl even knows I work here but it would be strange to be like, "Hey, it's me. I work for the place where you're coming to study in the fall. I know you've taken this language before but I need proof of what level you're in."
How should I phrase this e-mail so it doesn't sound weird/stalkerish?
Do you flip your mattress? How often?
From today's Chicago Red Eye:
A 12-year-old girl was left in tears at the Deerfield Baskin Robbins after a woman swiped her ice cream money, police said. The victim placed a $20 bill on the counter when another customer, described as a blond woman in the 40's, distracted the girl by asking about her favorite ice cream flavor. Grabbing her own ice cream and the girl's money from the counter in the same motion, the woman exited the store with three young children in tow, police said.
What kind of person actually steals a little girl's ice cream money?
What would you do if some bitch stole your ice cream money?
What's your favorite kind of ice cream?
My doctor prescribed tetracylcine for a week, two pills a day. I don't have an infection, but he prescribed it to me to prevent an infection after my procedure on Tuesday. I forgot to take my second pill last night (just kinda zonked off of the couch). Are all the pills rendered useless? I took my morning pill this morning.
YO WHICH MOTHAFUCKA STOLE MY FLOW??

I am trying to think of a name for my candle/reed diffuser/soap/various crafts business. I'm starting out with etsy.com and need a user name. I am thinking it could be something to do with Harry Potter/fantasy because a lot of my crafts have to do with that. CAN YOU HELP ME, TQC?

What other songs can you recommend that are similar in style and pace?
Do you find that you have difficulty achieving an orgasm if you have to crap?
George Takei has popped up sporadically on Heroes, since Boston Legal ended William Shatner has largely been doing Priceline commercials, Dominic Keating is often seen on commercials at the movie theater portraying the agent of a chimpanzee, and the season ender for Fringe finally showed the elusive William Bell to be Leonard Nimoy.
Outside of any of the Star Trek series, where have you been seeing their cast members lately?

Day or night hangout?
Do you like kissing someone with a tongue ring?
Why or why not?
So I did my taxes with TUrboTax, and mailed the paperwork admittedly close to the deadline (I think I put them in the mailbox at the post office on the 14th). I opted for the "direct deposit into your bank account" option, and I have yet to see anything. For those of you who chose this option, how long after you filed your taxes did your return appear in your bank account?

If you were getting a little girl sugar glider and already had a boy named Bug, what would you name her?
I've played with naming her something that goes with Bug like Lady or June. I might just name her something unrelated though.
Hi TQC. I'm home alone, but I'm going out in about two hours. Leaving me half an hour to get ready, what can I do in an hour and a half to entertain myself? I've already cleaned the house, and had a shower.
How long is the longest your bathroom has ever gone between cleanings?
I really hope there is someone in here that is grosser than I am, because I'm feeling pretty gnarly right now. D:
Also, how the motherfuck can I get mold stains off the caulk between my bathtub and the shower walls?? Bleach and a scrubby sponge didn't do it.

If you could magically choose when you were born, when would you want to live out your life?
So TQC proper, what's up over here?
Do your animals ever just go totally nuts when you touch their stomach? My boy cat just started kicking, clawing, licking and biting me––but all sort of softly/tentatively––when I scritched his belly.
Is it the equivalent to when people get tickled and they laugh and convulse and cry?
Also, I take back defending the USPS workers. They keep leaving "We Missed You!" slips when I am totally home and doing stuff near the door. They NEVER KNOCK. What's the last bad experience you had as a customer/receiving a service?
Finally, do you like Judas Priest? Iron Maiden? I'm so rocking out right now.
What is your favorite movie?
I was going to go to the pool with my family today for the first swim of the summer, and I realized I'm out of contacts and my vision is worse than ever.
I started off at -.75 with contacts freshman year of high school, and now I'm at -4.75 after freshman year of college.
This means I can't see for shit without my glasses. I'm pretty bummed about it.
Should I just wear my glasses in the pool, and not swim much, as annoying as it would be?
Do you have a problem with vision and swimming?
I want to actually swim and be able to seeeeeeeeeeee. :[
Is it tricky to rock a rhyme on time?
I have to attend a Dirty Dancing/60's themed party. I'm supposed to dress like it's 1963.

I'm going to a superhero-themed party tonight. What should I be (that preferably wears black because that's the only corset I have)?

What should I do for the last 25 minutes of work?
Inspired by my last post about this woman!
Let's say you're staying at your grandmother's home, and she's MIA (hospitalized, etc). Said neighbor knows what time of day you're home/not home.
You come home to a greeting card stuck in your door, saying that she cut down a bunch of bushes in your grandmother's yard, and planted some hostas.
You look back there and she BUTCHERED the bushes, left the stumps, and half-heartedly planted four hostas (one of which already looks dead).
WTF would you do?
Why did that chick delete? Because she realized it was silly to think men don't watch porn?
Men don't watch porn, right? That's all just a myth, right?
Lol. When my puppydog sees another dog outside, she gets really excited and makes this really strange noise... I can only describe it as a cross between an old man groan, and a noise that a wookie would make. What kinds of weird noises do your pets make?
What should my first *legal* drink be tomorrow?!
when you speak, does your voice sound differently in your head than it does out loud?

If you were to write a romantic comedy what would it be about?
I'm about to go to the grocery store. What should I get?
I have somehow lost the ability to ctrl+v!! What did I do? How do I fix this??
EDIT: I restarted! It fixed itself. Weird.

Do you like walking in the rain?
I loove to walk in the rain.
If you ordered takeout and then got home and realized they left something out, would you go back to get it or write it off as a loss?
In this instance, you forgot the sodas and the restaurant is 1.5 miles away.
BRB GOING TO GET MY SODA
EDIT: The soda is delicious. What is not delicious is that some glass or something fell off some dude's truck and hit my car. WTF? No damage, far as I can tell.
Will you post your apple/ctrl+v?
what are your favourite ways of cooking lamb?
give me a quick simple recipe, TQC!
1) Which Disney animated character would you have sex with, if you had to choose one?
2) Which anthropomorphized Disney animal character would you have sex with, if you had to choose one? (And I don't mean just any animal that talks, although...I guess, if you want to pick from amongst those you can, but I'm thinking the ones that walk on their hind legs and wear clothing and living in humanoid dwellings like in Robin Hood.)
ETA: Alright, let's say plain old talking animals count, too. I was just wondering if the ones that acted more like humans were more line-blurringly attractive.
How come doing the right thing doesn't feel as good as it should?
1. Have you ever had cosmetic surgery, botox injections, or anything like that?

Is a diva really the female version of a hustla?
What was the last "wow, I can't believe I just did that" stupid thing you did?
I just moved from Long Island, where I've lived all my life, to Wisconsin. I only know one person in the state, and I'm starting to get really homesick, even though I like it here.
What would you do in my situation to make yourself feel better?
I had an ice cream sandwich about an hour ago and now I want a beer. Someone told me not long ago that this will make you extremely sick. Is this person wrong? I seriously don't know, I'm not an alcohol expert lol
Will you tell us a funny story about an awkward situation?
Have you ever tried to negotiate salary when offered a job?
How did it work out?

ETA:How do you clean your yoga mat? soap and water? sponge? dishrag? cleansers?

I'd say Captain Vidal from Pan's Labyrinth. He's the scariest, most sadistic son of a bitch ever.
What's your favorite scene from the original Fantasia?
I'd have to say the scene with the centaurs (even though the pastoral symphony is not my favorite song from the movie).
On Wednesday I woke up with a sore throat. On Thursday I woke up with a sore throat and congestion. Today I'm completely congested and coughing and my throat is still sore and my boss even sent me home from work.
On Sunday I have to go on an all-day outing. Am I going to feel well enough to do it?
Also today after I got sent home I went on an hour-long walk because I felt less congested standing up. Is it a good idea to do this again?
My step dad supports my decision to enlist!
What's something exciting that happened to you today?
I grew up eating pancakes ONLY as a dinner food. I never knew that people ate them for breakfast until I was like 13-14, and I still thought that that was really strange. I really still do think pancakes for breakfast is really weird.
My roommate says this is crazy, and that anyone who eats pancakes for dinner is insane.
Am I the only one who thinks of pancakes as a dinner food???

What *hard* drug would you try? (Pot and alcohol are the only exceptions).
Have you ever snuck out of your house? Feel free to elaborate.
Not asking you to internet diagnose, but srsly u guiz I know nothing about illness because I'm never sick. So general malaise (or weakness or feeling like shit and being tired or whatever) plus a sore throat plus shittons of phlegm plus sinus problems = what usually?
The underside of my chin itches, too, and I can't get a good breath in.

Has this ever happened to you or your SO?
What counts as a first kiss? Does it have to be on the mouth? Does it have to be romantic? etc.
One of my favorite songs is Drops of Jupiter by Train. There's a particular line that I really love, and I eventually want it tattooed on me.
Now that shes back in the atmosphere
I'm afraid that she might think of me as plain ol jane
Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land
(The bolded part is the part I want tattooed). However my brother thinks it means one thing and I think it means another (his is more negative while mine is positive). Could you tell me what you think it means so I can make sure I'm not misreading it? Thanks :-)
what are some your pets' nicknames?

Any recent wtf moments you'd like to share?

It seems like my love life goes one of two ways.
1) I feel safe and comfortable with a guy, but BORED. So bored!
or 2) I feel excited and passionate but so worried with another guy.
(This is not a real situation just hypothetical)
What should I pursue? Should I go after the guy who scares me to death even if it could really hurt me?
Ever consumed something that really ought to be combined with something else, in its proper form? Like, drank Tabasco or ate a lump of butter?
I don't know if eating a wad of peanut butter off a spoon counts, because it seems just FINE on its own, thankyouverymuch.
