What phobias do you have?
a. Who do you listen to?
b. What is your favorite song in that genre?
I am looking for new music in those genres to listen to. To give you an example, I love;
Joy Division - "She lost control" Bauhaus - "Passion for Lovers"
Siouxsie & The Banshees - "Israel" Sisters of Mercy - "Body Electric"
VAST - "Pretty when you cry" Dead Can Dance - "The Ubiquitous Mr. Lovegrove"
2. You get a chance to go ghosthunting with the TAPS guys anywhere in the world, where do you want to go?

For instance, in my group of friends everyone is not married (most don't even have a serious boyfriend/girlfriend) and we've all graduated from college. Often living with their parents.
In other groups I notice that basically everyone is engaged by the time they graduate and get married when they're around 22 years old.
What was the last thing that made you feel sick?
What's one thing another person can do that is guaranteed to drive you absolutely batty?
I HATE SNOT SNIFFERS. JUST USE A TISSUE FFS! :(
(1) How would you respond to somebody who says this to you?
(2) What was the last thing you purchased?
( Collapse )
My boyfriend's big head just smashed into my nose. It's wicked painful.
(3) When was the last time you were in pain?
how practical are you with your money?
will you post a quote you like?
Once we get to Canada, do you have any suggestions of awesome things we should do besides drink?
Have you had poutine? Did you enjoy it? I think I am looking most forward to this.
But I don't have any "secrets" worh sending.
Will you help me come up with a worthy secret?
Phlegm that is... God you people have dirty minds. :P
If you cough up phlegm, do you spit it out or swallow it?
I've been given a task to procure dinner this evening by way of delivery, so I've got three choices. Should I go with subs/grinders, pizza, or asian food?
I'm fascinated by this tiny bug, that smells so awful. I want to read about it but don't know what it's called? Tried googling it [bug smells like feet], no luck there. I tried taking a picture, but my macro isn't strong enough. It's black, has a supple hind body and tiny wings that do not seem to work and it's about 4mm/0.15 inches long.
Kentucky Fried Chicken or Kentucky Grilled Chicken?
Tacos or burritos?
Chili, cheese, and bacon makes anything better. Y/Y?
What are you dreading?
How's the fucking weather?
Ladies - are you on any form of hormonal birth control? What kind (specifically)? How's that working out for you?
Experiences on either side?
Do you talk about politics/personal convictions to people you just met?
My new neighbor, within the first hour of meeting him, told us he hated people from the MIddle East because he thinks they're all "terrorists" ever since being deployed. He also "isn't racist, and has black friends, but would kill any black man any daughter of his brings home". Also, Obama is trying to ruin the country.
I, on the other hand, don't really talk about politics to acquaintences.
Oh and neither of them know how you feel about the guy. Would you say something?
Are they a ~superfood~ or overrated?
What do you think is the sexiest vampire movie and/or show, not including vampire porn?
Sex does not count as working out in this question!
Well maybe it can - What's the best sex position to tone
When was the last time you totally botched an interview? Will you tell me what happened? (Like what you did to mess it up? And whether it turned out alright in the end?)
Do you think I should adopt a kitty?
What specifically prompted this was http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1244371099010&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull in which Sikh soldiers are trying to avoid having to shave, cut their hair or remove their turbans.
Similar cases have happened in BC over Sikh's refusing to wear helmets on motorcycles or carrying kirpans in school.
Oh, if anyone can think of other religious accommodations and safety issues with other religions that would be great, because right now it looks like I am just picking on Sikhs.
Do you want to get married?
If no, why not?
If you did get married, what was the song you and your spouse first danced to?
( Collapse )
If you're one of those that always goes the speed limit...
What is your favorite non-alcoholic beverage?
ex. Bryan Adams - Everything I Do
Shania Twain - Forever and For Always
I'm in that mood today and I would love to make a CD. :)
I like those O'Charley's rolls, and if that's wrong...
2)Have you ever hitchhiked?
3)Have you ever picked up a hitchhiker?
We get home from grocery shopping when I realize that I must now cook dinner because your lazy ass isn't going to but still wants to be pleased. What cookbooks do you shove in my hands?
And what's your favorite must have(s) from them?
And least favorite item(s) from them?
Fave discontinued product?
And he's a gamer.
So we don't really have the money to do much right now, and his fallback when he's bored is playing online games for HOURS at a time. Leaving me sitting on his bed being bored.
I've gotten a laptop, and put some games on it. I love playing Left4Dead, etc. But I'm still bored, spending so many hours at his house doing nothing.
Does anyone have ideas of cheap things the two of us could do to
1.) get us out of the house, and
2.) keep the both of us entertained for at least a little while?
(ie not neopets, lj, pogo, etc)
"She with the biggest boobs wins!"
To see who the winner here is, if anybody actually answers this, what's your cup size?
Fat men may share the size of their man boobies if they wish.
What did they do? Did it work out for them?
What should I sell on the internet?
Has a celeb ever come into your place of business? Did you wait on them? If so, what was it like?
I've rung up a few C-listers, but my supervisor rang up Brad Pitt.
One of my best friends from high school got a job at a restaurant and saw Gerard Butler.
If I did that, I'd be really tempted to go: "Sorry, Mr. Butler...we're out of the chicken teriyaki...but THIS IS PASTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
How was that experience?
That's where any of you reading this come in.
What is there to do in Portland?
Where are good places to make friends?
Say if you were presenting the city, and surrounding areas, to a friend to entice them to visit how would you best present the place to lure them in?
Granted, cuz I'll be xposting this to get a wide range of responses, if you currently live in Portland that would be ideal. Still, if you ever lived there that'd probably be okay too.
Thanks in advance!
Oh, on a random note, what exactly does "PDX" stand for?
I have a question for you ladies on Yaz. I've been on it for over a year and I'm noticing while it's done wonders for the crazy moods, my cramps are almost as bad as they were before I went on the pill.
Did your cramps get worse or stayed just as bad, while the the rest of your PMDD symptoms subsided?
2. Do inside-only cats make you sad? Why do people get cats and keep them inside?
oh and lets say i do go to the place you suggest. what should i get?
b) on the internet?
I just wanted to show off the montage I made of my first fishing trip of the season with my dad.
Or do you have a picture of something you want to show off?
( Collapse )
Alternately, what's the goofiest thing you've seen today?
Walking back from the Greek deli, I looped the handles over my wrist and then grabbed some of the bag itself to hold it up. Halfway back, I walked past a construction site and saw a guy with an arc welder in a cherry picker -- with a lovely beach umbrella lashed to the cherry picker.
You have a busy day of work/school the next day and go into your room to climb into bed, when what do you see? It looks like a giant tarantula the size of your hand! After you get someone to come look at/poke it, that person says that it's no longer a tarantula, but merely it's skin, which it sheds every now and then. The real spider is still somewhere else, but was on your bed long enough to shimmy out of its spring duds. It may still be somewhere really close by. What do you do? Remember you still have a busy day the tomorrow
2 - How many people think it would be totally awesome if I did it?
What about RPGs? Should I try playing Kingdom Hearts again?
Right now, I'm in the basement with the dog and cat 1 in a carrier in a tornado warning. I couldn't catch cat 2 and had to leave her upstairs.
I already heard the vague sound of rumbling a little while ago, but they keep extending the warning. I grew up in Missouri. I've seen 2 tornadoes and lived through one that went over my house. You can't find any news of the warning on the radio. I left the TV up super loud and heard that the storm is still rotating.
What lies have you heard about your current location?
Will you tell me it's going to be okay???
Why is this happening the first time my boyfriend is out of the house and I am alone here??
are you a prescriptivist or a descriptivist? when arguing online, do you criticize people who spell something wrong? why?
What are your favorite daytime TV shows to watch?
2)What's your favorite country in the Middle East?
How many of them are real-life friends?
How did you make your internet friends? I don't seem to be very good at it, I guess I'm not interesting. :p
Has anybody else had this problem?
I live out in the country and use hotmail to communicate with the rest of the world and for the entire past week every time I try to log in to my email I get this bullshit message about how I may not have an internet connection and how it may be that the site is temporarily down please try later. For a week?????
They are no longer providing customer support so there's no way I can ask because I can't fucking log in to be able to ask.
Is it sufficient to merely be yourself?
Where did you meet them?
How often do you hang out with them?
Found it on surfthechannel! Thanks so much!
What should be in her carry-on luggage, besides her Nintendo DS and some gum to chew during take-off?
For those of you who don't give a damn and/or are so jealous you can hardly speak:
What is your most memorable trip?

Who is more fun to date? the Good boy or bad boy??

Non musical TQCers: Have you ever dyed your hair? What color?
Our building president needs to get his shit together and get the fire alarms fixed. Twice a day for the past three days the fire alarm has gone off. I can't find the cats' leashes, so I have to fit two almost full-grown cats in a carrier that is not meant to hold them, then carry them down sixteen flights of stairs, and by the time I'm downstairs, we're allowed in the building again.
My mother's father's brother's son is my _______.
Well, I decided to blow him off because I didn't really need that sort of stress in my life, and I used the excuse that I was called into work to get out of meeting him.
...and then he turned up at my work. o_0
For those of you who hadn't figured out already I am NAKED at work....so it is a little creepy for people I know to visit me. He turned up 3 nights in a row and on the 3rd night the bouncers wouldn't let him in because he kept asking for my address etc.
Also he keeps sending me texts like this:
"I have loved you for one quarter century! If that means nothing to you then perhaps goodbye forever!!!!"
"I'm here with the intention of catching up with you because I care. Yet you are playing games with me! I'm going up north where I'll speak to your mother..."
I have not replied and the texts come in about once every half hour...
How worried should I be?
Do you think he will just go away if I ignore him?
What would you do in this situation?
Edit: I looked back a few pages and saw a question about Sims 3. So I am sorry for the repeat.
Should I move my $$ to a credit union and out of BoA? I'm reading up on them but I suck at finance stuff...all I know is I heard some people talking about credit unions being superior to banks but I don't know why yet.
EDIT: Like, what I don't understand is, if I'm with a credit union can I do things like use ATMs all over the place still?
How often do you text your significant other?
I send and receive about 400 texts a day and I told him I want to cut it down a little bit and this saddens him. But it seems like a LOT to me.
So my friend was sent a Facebook invite by a mutual RL fiend, and the email that came had two friend suggestions at the bottom. She actually knows both of these people, but these people do not know each other, and neither are known by the person who sent the invite. Given that she's never signed up for FB how is this possible? She is minorly disturbed at the all knowingness.
I just got box seat tickets to the Phillies game on Thursday, but I've never sat in the box before and I'm trying to figure out how many rows back box seats are...This is the park setup:
but none of those areas are labeled as box seats. HMMMMMMM.
What should I say to this guy to keep him from calling me permanently? Should I pretend I'm this guy he's looking for? Should I threaten to kill him and anyone he's ever loved? Help!
How did you cope?
Do you think the pain ever stops?
If you recently lost one, I'm sorry for bringing it up.
How many of those times are meals? Snacks?
Do you feel like you eat too much, not enough?
1) All. Day.
2) dont know. Mostly snacks.
3) Way too much... I don't even understand how I'm not obese. I need to CHILL! All of a sudden I'm just eating a ridiculous amount.
If not... do you like olives?
I just saw a possum!
Have you ever submitted anything to Urban Dictionary?
what do you do for a living?
do you love Charlsrie?
When slow dancing to Stairway to Heaven, what are you supposed to do when the fast part comes on?
Confused and Embarrassed
In addition, what icon do you never have a use for, and why? Use it now. I’m using mine, from the movie The Lady Killers, but haven’t yet had any issues with LJ people putting their fingers up my friends’ noses, so no occasion to use it.
They're fairly big and have blank pages (not lined).
What would you put/write/draw in them if you received those?
I have some ideas, but they're pretty notebooks and I don't want
to fuck them up.
Do you think the New Testament teaches people to pay lip service to people?
I don't wanna join that nurse community, it's scary.
How do you make french fries at home that are not out of a frozen french fry bag? I assume you par-fry them or w/e but I've just never been able to get crispy ones. I tried baking them once and they were fucking weird.
do you fold the brim?
pound sign (the real one)
when you're listening to music in a fairly private location, do you use headphones or play it from speakers? (like, whilst at your computer)

he's a 10 week old shih tzu/chihuahua mix.
my husband and i are not very creative pet namers, as our last pet was a fish named Fish.
Whats the best food for someone who has a cold? I've been sick since Friday night! Eww.
If you went on your boyfriend/girlfriend's MySpace/Facebook/Twitter/ect... and saw that their profile still stated about how much they loved their ex (this means they haven't changed it in a long time since the last relationship they were in) would you be upset about that?
Which would you rather own? Dog, cat, or mouse?
Is it worth going out with a gamer? (Do you even know that term? Not trying to be mean)
On a rainy day, what's your favorite thing to do?
Well that's it. You don't have to answer them all, but I am curious (in a joking mood) as to what you all might say to these questions. :)
you chop your balls off and die?
if not, what is an average day for you like?
What is it?
Have you ever received love poems?
What are your favorite poems in general?
I love love love to dance, so telling me I'm a good dancer makes me very happy. Or someone saying that I remind them of Amelie or look like an old-time movie star, because I love those, too.
What are yours? Serious or non-serious answers are fine.
So, I'm doing this internship thing, and I have 22 more hours to do. I could easily do that by Thursday and be done. In fact, I HAVE to be done by Friday. HOWEVER, there's this guy I work with who I'd like to "hang out with," and I think he'd also like to hang out with me, too (I know he does), but he won't be in until MONDAY at the earliest. So, if all goes according to plan, I will never see him again in my life. He doesn't have my phone number, so it's important that he gets that, somehow.
HOWEVER2, I have some TVs (long story) to pick up at work. Would it be way too obvious to try and like, take a long weekend and then come in for a short while and pick up TVs? Should I pretend like all 3 of the TVs don't fit in my car, and come back on Tuesday, too? Ideas, please.
(2) In the same vein, I was thinking of writing personal thank-you notes to the people who were really awesome and giving cupcakes to everyone. What's the etiquette regarding this? Could I write a general "thank you all" letter and THEN individual letters + a small platter of mini cupcakes for each department? What do you think? (Could I also include my phone number in his thank-you note?)
if this was tl;dr, did you ever do a long internship? tell me about it
I live near Providence, RI, btw, if anyone's local.
At this point, little-miss-law-abiding has started to crave a fake id - and I don't even drink!
I, being the masochist that I am -she knows this- immediately answered, with an adorable cheeky grin, "Make me".
Her answer? "Wish I could but I'm saving my randiness for the club."
Does this sound like a good thing? I'd think so but then again I may be a little biased. [She also called me cute. :)]
why me, WHY?
My boyfriend and I's total cost was $28, but his meal got comped because they forgot to make it, so it came out to only $16. The other couple's total cost was $78. We all split an appetizer that was $10.
I brought a gift card that was $50 and we put $20 of the check of it. Then my boyfriend and I were discussing if it was dick of us to not just use the whole gift card toward the bill. I didn't feel obligated to because most of the gift card would go to their portion of the check as they clearly got things that were way more expensive, and we still have $30 left on the card we could use for a whole other meal. At the same time though, I feel like I looked stingy and I don't really know these people so who knows what they thought.
Was it rude of me not to use the whole gift card toward the check?
