ETA: if you went to a restaurant and your waiter was really cool and kept talking about how much he was craving a blizzard from DQ, and you had a friend that works at DQ who could get you free blizzards... would you have gotten him a free blizzard and taken it to the restaurant for him because it makes for a funny story? (we didn't but i'm curious what you'd do.)
ALSO, when job hunting, is it best to fill out an application on site, or go somewhere else and hand it in a bit later?
EDIT! What's something nice someone has done for you recently? The guy I'm interested in and I have recently started making out. The first time I got kind of hot and told him so. The next time I visited his house I noticed that it was a lot colder than it normally is and I thought it was kind of sweet.
My room is so messy it's cluttering my mind. I have to walk on my tippy toes in long strides to be able to walk on the actual floor instead of my stuff.
Should I clean my room right now, or wait until tomorrow?
( Collapse )
do you know anyone that does?
how do you feel about it? ^
i've been drinking 4 mugs of tea a day in the past week D:
ETA: fav brand of tea? i'm partial to tetley's myself!
I needed 100 sources whittled down to 50. The person I'm meeting with said that I should *start* adding notes to each of my 50 sources.
How many notes would you have done for the meeting tomorrow?
What has made you sad lately?
note: this is based on something from http://fmylife.com, so i don't know how old the kid is, who bought the balloons, etc.
I like to rock the party
If you don't, what was the last book you read? How was it?
I found this image from a TQC comment and thought it was a cute baby seal, so I posted it all over my personal pages on the www, and I got a reply from my step sister asking if it was " :/ dead"?
upon examination, I couldn't figure it out. I asked my BF, and he said, yes it may be dead. I felt really bad for once thinking it was cute. I also felt sick to my stomach in case it was a picture of a real frozen-to-death baby seal.
My question is, is it really dead? What do you think TQC.
I thought it was living because this picture was posted alongside of it
When I was younger, I found a story that was part of a triology, each about three different girls. The one I read was about a woodland nymph/fairy, who wore like, a green dress and a long navy blue cloak with blonde curly hair on the cover. She had to find a flute of some kind and it was in a tree trunk. I remember another girl in the trilogy wore a pink dress and was a brunet.
Does anyone know what book i'm talking about?
Tell me, o wise TQC!

What can you reasonably expect your Friday night to be like?
Steak for dinner and rockets from the Taliban....wheee!!
What should I do to keep myself busy?
I'm pregnant and only a month away from my due date, so no drinking or other shenanigans, lol.
Non-serious answers are welcome :)
What are some of your favourite songs that I should listen to? Genre doesn't matter since my tastes are eclectic.
Edit: P.S. Some good ones I actually know: Lisa Hannigan ("Lille" is the best to me), Meiko, Colin Hay, Plain White T's, Joseph Arthur (I can listen to "In the Sun" over and over), and Soko.
I'm bored...I snack
Did you comment on my comment to your comment?
Have you ever made a move you thought was permanent but were unable to make it home? How did you deal with it?
How long does it take you for an unfamiliar place to feel like home?
How can I settle someplace else and resist the urge to move back home? Or really, how can I convince myself that I am going to stay and it's not just temporary, and that there is nowhere to go back to?
How do you deal with things you are afraid of but have to face?
What is the scariest thing you have ever seen?
the reason i'm asking is because i'll be out of a job as of July 31 because my company is going out of business, and my first reaction was to start finding another job ASAP but a part of me just wants to take some time off...i've been working non-stop since school, with pretty much no vacations. it's normal to take time off, right?
also i haven't told my parents this...what's the best way to break bad news like this...should i call and tell them, or tell them in person? (i do live with my parents, i just have trouble finding "the right moment" to tell them)
also...if you're going to see your doctor and you look something up on the internet and you see something you think you have...would you just straight out tell your doctor? or just tell him the symptoms you have and wait for him to diagnose it?
I really appreciate it if anyone knows.
I am going to the library soon and was wondering:
What is the best biography/autobiography you have ever read?
Do you have another book to recommend?
Do you flip your pillow over in the middle of the night to get to the cold side?
I never have. I like my pillow just the way it is.
Well, our Project Manager just told me that, when the BM leaves next month, they're bringing a lady in from another contract site to take the job. WTF? I've been being trained for 2 years for this job, and they're going to bring someone else in from off-site!!?
I just got passed over for a promotion that I've been promised for two years.
What should I do tonight? Srs and non srs answers, please.
(I've already put in applications for other companies online out of pure pissed-offedness...and this just further motivates me to go back to school in August.)
Is it a sign? Is there spontaneous vacation in my future? =D
Will you tell me about your most recent dream?
Yesterday I broke up with my boyfriend, we had only been dating three months. He is a year younger than me and I am a graduating senior at our high school. Saturday is our prom, and we were going to go together. I want to go, but I don't at the same time. I still love him, and I feel terrible for hurting him, but I just couldn't be in a relationship any longer. He is sweet and amazing, but I just couldn't. I feel like the biggest cunt on the face of the planet. Should I go to prom? How much do you think I'm going to cry when I pick up our flowers tomorrow?
What should I do to make myself feel better? Already I'm getting a haircut, watching movies, and going to my best friends house. I am also wearing a really amazing dress all day.
Today my high school is giving out yearbooks, and I'm missing it because I am feeling so worthless. How much am I missing out on? I'll just get everyone I know to sign mine on Monday, right?
I won't really even remember him come September when my school starts. Life will be okay :)
2)What do you like in your trail mix? specifically what nuts fruits candy etc.

Out-of-the-ordinary and exciting social interactions, or horribly awkward situations that you NEED to somehow get out of?
If a new game you're interested in or really want is coming out soon, do you reserve it and pick it up when it's convenient or are you there at the midnight release/when the store opens?
If someone's going to contact you about a job, or a trip or w/e do you sit anxiously by your phone/email or do you just check it when you think about it?
Are you good at keeping plants alive?
If you have any, would you like to show us some pictures of them?
Did you notice increased sensitivity to those teeth after? It feels like I have open cavities now and I can't really bite down on my new fillings (they're over a week old). Is this normal? I'm a little pissed off!
2)what are you overly sensitive about?
my startle response.

3. If you could walk into any painting and actually experience the moment or scene it depicts, which painting would you choose to enter?
My natural color is a darkish brown, but I've been auburn for more than six years now.
( Collapse )
I'm kind of sick of it now and I'd like to go darker for a few months. Maybe up to six months but probably not longer. Maybe a brown darker than my natural or a black. My only problem is that I'm sure that after those few months, I'm going to want to go back to my "natural" auburn- the color that I'm used to.
I know that if I dye my red on top of the black, nothing'll really happen. But since my natural color is already fairly dark and the color I like is from dying over that, I know I don't have to go really light to get back. I've heard about color removers like "Color Oops" that supposedly take you back to your natural color, I'm not sure how much I trust that but all I really need is something a little lighter. Has anyone used these? How do they work and are they particularly damaging? Or how much would it cost to go to a salon? I wouldn't need them to do the red, I've been doing that myself for years, just get that slightly lighter shade so my hair will take the red color. I don't want to go black until I know for sure I'll be able to change it back. Thanks TQC!
What should I do? I'm going to the movies later with my family, opening presents, and then dinner. Anything I should do before/in between/after?
What are some websites where I can find cheap but still cute and good quality earrings? I recently got back into wearing them but my selection is tiny and consists of earrings from when I was 12. :(
Do you think that if they get the results tomorrow or sunday they'll let me know since it's kind of a big deal or will they make me suffer until monday?
When am I going to feel better?
Do i have swine flu or something else? If it's something else what do you think is wrong with me?
What should I do to entertain myself? I'm so tired of tv, I can't concentrate on a book and i'm not allowed to leave my house. (not that i feel like it anyways)
Who thinks that raptorwrath should bring me a slushie?
Can you tell me something funny to entertain me or something to make me feel better?
in the country you live in?
I realize I'm asking you to generalize a bit here.
I would take it everywhere (even the shower!) with me and probably take pictures of me pretending to drink out of it all over town. I'm pretty sure my husband would eat the world's biggest bowl of cereal out of it.
ETA : Who do you want to win the Cup this year?
LET'S GO PENS!!! Detroit has had it enough! Also, Hossa can suck it for leaving the Thrashers and then leaving the Pens to go to the Wings. BOO URNS.
Brad Pitt. Never saw him as super hot, not in the 90s and definitely not now.
What is a really popular movie that people rave about that you've never seen all the way through?
The Godfather. The horse part creeped me out too much.
Where is your ~happy place~? Plz describe in detail.

Now that the movie is coming out, everyone keeps talking about the damn 70s one. I remember LOVING the 90s Land of the Lost so much when I was little. Anyway...
What is the best meal you could cook, only using items that are in your house right now?
Where is the strangest place you've ever relieved yourself?
Guys: do you ever sit when you pee?
Girls: do you ever stand when you pee or would you ever buy a device that allows you to stand while peeing?

I have a ton of mix tapes I want to listen to while I'm doing stuffs!
did anything unexpected happen?
Vanessa Carlton - Ordinary Day
Goo Goo Dolls - Broadway Is Dark Tonight
Baha Men - Who Let The Dogs Out
Creed - My Sacrifice, and most other Creed songs
Random rap/hip-hop, things my brother would play in his car. Jay-Z and such.
Backstreet Boys, Nsync, etc.
What was the last thing that surprised you?
What kind of jewelry do you wear?
If not, when was the last time you were thrilled and terrified at the same time?
I seem to have lost my fiances credit card, my drivers and my health card (which also has our babys info on it). I don't normally keep them together like that but when we went out I just threw everything in my drivers plastic cover since we wouldn't be out long and now it's all missing! We discovered this late last night and have been looking ever since. We checked and there have been no new purchases on the credit card as of 2 minutes ago.
Should we keep looking until tomorrow or just consider it gone, cancel everything and then probably end up finding it tomorrow?
ETA: We found it. After we cleaned all the rooms, looked anywhere our ferrets might have hidden it and threw out all the trash in the vehicles it was nestled safely in the CD's in our car.
When was the last time reality didn't live up to your hopes?
I have solid woodworking knowledge but don't know anything about wood itself. I assume I'd ideally get a hard wood that's also not very porous. Can you help me out further in suggesting types of wood, and what to avoid/look for in terms of how the wood has been treated (or naturally-occurring chemicals in the wood itself)? I'm sure most commercially available woods have very bad toxins and such in them or at least simply aren't food-safe.
I have access to the RISD Metcalf Store which has a selection of fine/rare woods so that might help.
Cross-posted to do_it_yourself. Thank you!
have you ever attended an anime convention? :)
Or are you a stay-at-homebody? (like me)
I use a separate remote to control the volume that's not meant for the TV. I don't know where the proper remote for the TV is as the TV was given to me.
My cable remote has periods of time where every time I press a button on it, the volume goes up or down.
What's the deal? Fix it please?
1.) Link me to / post something that might make me laugh? I could use it.
2.) How is your day going?
3.) If it's not going well, want to bitch about it?
Come on, TQC. I'll bring the ice cream, you bring the chick flicks. We'll make a day of it.
I had some pretty costly car problems which ended the life of my vehicle and cost me a couple thousand dollars. Thing is, I didn't have a couple thousand dollars. I make the minimum payments, and I consider myself financially responsible, for the most part. I was thinking today that I could get a student loan for a couple thousand dollars for a much lower interest rate than my credit card. (about 6% vs. 29% from the credit card). Would it be financially irresponsible to use a student loan (which I haven't taken out yet) to pay off my credit cards and then make payments to the student loan?
200gm of chicken tenderloins
4 rashers of bacon
4 bean mix
I would like to make a couple of little chicken pot pies.
Could any of the wonderful people here who know how to cook tell me how to do this with above ingredients?
Or what I could make if pies aren't possible?
It's my only day off until next Saturday, and I was really looking forward to the rest. But now I feel guilty for telling them no, even though I already work 43 hours a week. (Though for comparison's sake, it's not even that much -- there are some people who do 50-60 hours a week split between the three stores the owner has.)
Will this refusal hurt my chances of getting a raise and being promoted to shift leader?
What story do you tell me to send me to dreamland?
Also I finally have a picture of my engagement ring up now. What do you all think? Would a plain wedding band work better than a band full of diamonds? What do you have for your rings?
( Collapse )
-why can so many guys not deal with the mention of the ~female cycle~?
-what is the general reaction from most of the males you know?
-if you're a guy, what's your reaction?
women have to deal with some disgusting things that men do! it just seems a little ridiculous to get disgusted by the simple mention of cramps, etc. my boyfriend is used to it and doesn't get grossed out. that also goes for that majority of guys with girlfriends that i know.
completely unrelated, who did you last see in concert? good/bad?
Which would you prefer :
A 16gb Apple iPod Touch
This is the second iPod Touch in less than a year and I'm so..ugh. I'm SO ready to chuck it into a fucking river.
Will you cheer me up also?
is it okay for a laptop to make crunchy working noises all the time, or is it a sign of something bad?
2) Does anyone else feel pathetic for always going to the internet with their problems?
Silicone-based lube is very versatile, as I've discovered. Foot blister prevention, shoe polish, substitute for WD-40....do not ask me how I know this.
What would you do if you heard a knock on the door, and when you open it, it's a giant cockroach trying to say you ordered pizza?
"A Bronx teenager roasted her ex-roommate's kitten to death in a stove - then brushed off the incident as a joke when she was busted, authorities said Thursday.
"I hate cats," Cheyenne Cherry, 17, allegedly told investigators when asked about the heartless crime."
Someone beat me to it. My apologies.
Do you think the /b/ will perform internet justice, having already found her Myspace and phone number?
Why do you think many black people dislike cats?
P.S. I'm black and I love them. Don't take the issue of race seriously here.
If you don't care about this particular dead kitten, will you tell me what you think of energy drinks?
How often do you drink them and why?
My question is, who loves cancer?
I have a bit of a moral dilemma regarding a fanfiction. For some reason, this looks like the best place to ask for help, unless there's a fanfic_queries community I can't find. (If this is so, please point me in the right direction and I'll get my behind out of here in grateful shame.)
There's a fanfic for a fandom I frequent, let's call it A. It's a co-write, written by authors B and C. Author B writes the odd-numbered chapters, Author C the even-numbered ones.
From my standpoint as a reader, this is one of Author B's best works in her fanfic-writing career. However, in my mind, the chapters by Author C... not so. My mind thinks them inferior both in terms of grammar and spelling, and from a stylistic viewpoint.
I'd like to be able to review the fanfic (it's already on my favourites list), but I'm not sure whether I should stick to praising the fic as a whole, or attempt to do a decent con-crit of the chapters by Author C as well as giving praise to the chapters by Author B. On one hand, con-crit is desirable as far as I'm aware, and it might help Author C improve. On the other hand, I might be being unfair to one or both of the authors this way. On a mysterious third hand, I could be accused of bias on the part of Author B.
See, Author B is my cyber-girlfriend too.
Just to clear up something I believe people might be thinking at this point, I believe that I would hold the same opinions of the respective chapters even without the intimate relationship. My opinions of the fanfics she writes are independent of the opinions I hold of Author B as a whole. I just want to be able to praise and concrit the fanfic at the same time without showing any bias towards one author or the other.
Is this possible? And if so, what is the best way to go about this?
Again, if this is in the wrong place, please smack me with a herring - this is my first post in the community. Thank you in advance for the help. :)
Edit 2 for extra detail: the fic in question is on fanfiction.net.
Edit 3 to thank the people who have responded so far. Since I'm getting the vibe from some comments that I'm in the wrong place, is there a community that serves a similar purpose for this kind of problem?
Edit 4: So I am misguided and should be more careful (Edit 5: and less wordy) in future. Good to know. Thank you for the help. :) *sincere smile*
What have you accomplished in your life thus far, TQC?
(Also, any opinions on this kid's achievement?)
What search engines do you use?
What online resources to you to go to find information?
Do you know of any newer websites that I might find useful?
i know you aren't supposed to fill up the fish bowl with tap water because of chlorine and what not, but i'm not going to be able to get filtered water for a day or two.
2. how do you think being divorced would affect a guy when it comes to approaching/getting to know a girl he likes?
I was talking to some co-workers tonight after eating pizza about how I always notice I have a scratchy/sore throat after I eat pizza. They said they never noticed it before, but yeah, they did, too. A little soda pop or beer usually makes it better.
It's almost 11:00 PM, they're not home and they're never out this late...(They don't have cell phones)
At what point should I start freaking out?
What sort of situations make you paranoid?
Which lane do you sit in and why? Or are you a lane hopper?
You must pick one and if you say 'neither', your bowels and bladder will instantly void.
Also, I'm planning on getting a game of 'I never' going during our Friday night outing. Would it be success, failure or hilarious to start a 'I never', TQC-style?
(asked by the man behind the icon)
TL;DR: How many people from your graduating high school class have died? Does there seem to be a pattern?
OR: Have you seen The Presidio? How awesome is it?
So wat pissed you guys off today? Apologies for spelling errors in this post, I know I've made some but I have trouble reading and I'm not tired enouggh to go to bed.
