Where can I find a chair like this for cheap? http://www.strafe.com/art/trek/MadisonChair01.jpg My guy friends and I are building a replica of Captain Kirk's chair. (This is what I get for being friends with engineers and Trekkies.)
If you don't care I'm hosting a Beauty Society Skincare party this weekend. what kind of food should I make?
How likely is it that I will oversleep and be late for work?
will you make me one?
What's the funniest/stupidest thing you've ever done/had done to your hair? Pictures or it didn't happen!
ETA: My sub-letting flatmate has been smoking in her room and now it stinks. What is a suitable amount to charge her for "damages"? I obviously can't let the landlady deal with it because then she'd know we're subletting the room!
Should I go or skip it? I have really low tolerance for high heat. I usually like to go in April or October when the weather is more mild.
Have you been to a zoo?
What zoo is closest to you?
Which is your favorite animal at the zoo?
What was the last time you were made fun of?
I cried so hard during UP. anthill626 made fun of me for it. =[
According to UPS, mine is in Anchorage, Alaska.
I was planning on just buying a new dress to wear, but my bank account is lower than I thought after just paying my phone bill, and I can't really afford spending more than $20 to wear a one-time dress. I don't have a decent pair of heels either and I can't imagine flip flops would be acceptable!
So TQC, should I...
a. not go! I don't even know the damn girl anyways.
b. look at the local thrift store for a dress/shoes.
c. be cheap and wear the flower print skirt with flip-flops.
d. any other ideas? help!
It's been humid as hell and over 90 degrees for the past few days. My house has NEVER gotten below the 80 degree mark, despite the setting.
We got our electric bill and it was $170.
I'm only living here for two more months and my landlord is a procrastinator.
I think I should be able to live comfortably in my own house since I pay for the usage. It is currently 2:00am and still 80 degrees in the house, yet set at 65.
Besides calling everyday or multiple times a day, what can I legally do to ensure my comfort considering I pay rent PLUS my utility costs separately? (In Illinois, fyi.)
It's a semi-theoretical question. Feel free to get bizarre.
Edit: lolll, just realized I asked this question after another boat-question. Ha. Silly.
What kind of car do you drive?
( Collapse )
We did Target, Sears, and Bed Bath & Beyond.
For everyone, what's the weirdest wedding gift you've given, received, or heard of?
I bought my best friend a stripper pole, then went and installed it in her house while she and her husband were on their honeymoon.
What are you going to send me for a wedding present? ;-)
Ok so Im trying to figure out what movie this came from, but it also might have been a TV show or commercial or maybe just a dream of mine, its pretty fuzzy. It is a scene about a little kid (not sure if its a boy or a girl) that is at the pound trying to pick out a puppy and the kid goes and looks at all of them but never finds one that he/she likes and when he/she finally picks one it is because the dog winked at him/her. And the kid was looking for a wink because earlier in the movie someone said something about a wink meaning love. I lhope that wasnt too confusing but like i said the scene is pretty fuzzy but i appreciate any help this is driving me nuts. Thank you!
if nothing, who made up this scent and decided it smelled good?
Assume you'd get away with the stalking and there would be few, if any, repercussions. You're some kind of sneaky stalking ninja. :D (Inspired by Hector in
Edited to add: will you tell us of some of your future stalking antics?
Fine, fine. Will you post a picture of your favorite celebrity and TQC can comment on your taste?

Because it annoys the hell out of me,
I've already posted to Craigslist in the lost and found, and I'm about to make fliers to go and put up around where I found they keys.
What else can I do?
How long should I hold on to them before giving them to the police?
For those good Googlers, one of the keys has black plastic on it and says 'BELL', but googling Bell Keys brings up musical instruments, not keys. Is it a key brand name? There is a serial number on it, I was thinking if I found the Bell Key Company, I could try that.
Ok so this is what I posted, sort of:
Will you tell me about the first time you took your car to the shop for an oil change/check up/whatever? I'm going in half an hour and I'm really nervous. I know absolutely nothing about cars, I don't drive very often (I have trouble remembering which side is the gas tank opening is on, which makes for awkward situations at the gas station). I'm going because I'm hearing a suspicious dull clicking noise, and also for an oil change. Will they laugh at my incompetence and rip me off? =(
Are you aversive to getting help as I am? I feel really embarrassed/awkward about asking my amateur-car-mechanic friend for help, even though he's the nicest guy ever and is really willing to help me.
Please help me with my unreasonable anxieties!
Thanks for the great advice, I love you guys. I'm off to the repair shop now, hope all goes well!
Can be as simple as "tuna!" or as elaborate as "grilled chicken with a dash of paprika and drizzled with a sauce made with alfredo and capers"
Mine's so warm I have to have a fan on my desk while everyone else is complaining it's too cold!
Any ladies out there consider it rude or in anyway derogatory to be called Ma'am? If so, why?
Secondly, do you know what your love language is?
(there are five if you don't know: quality time, words of affirmation, gift giving, acts of service, and physical touch - she has summed it up nicely: http://community.livejournal.com/thequestionclub/64692876.html?thread=1736401292#t1736401292)
I just spilled candle wax on my berber carpet. HOW DO I GET IT OUT? SHITTTTTTTT
THANK YOU EVERYONE. HOLY COW. I THOUGHT I WAS DEAD.
When was the last time you FREAKED OUT!?
Anyway, the cover looked like a field of wheat or something nice and pastoral, and then there was some sort of lightbulb or something superimposed (to illustrate the lights out notion, I suppose).
The book was about this guy and his wife who decide to remove themselves from the modern consumerist lifestyle by renting a farm from an Amish guy and living as the Amish do. They didn't convert or anything, but to be respectful of their community, they tried to blend in as best they could. He talks about the lifestyle and its effect on leisure time, food production, neighborhood community, etc.
In the end, he concludes that the Amish have a lot of things right, and though he didn't stay with the Amish, he moved to a town or something and bought a house with a yard and they still grow their own food, commute with bicycles, etc. Adapting as much of the Amish style culture as they felt was appropriate for their own lives.
I've searched everywhere for this book and I can't find it. Amazon, google, my public library. Can't find it. Searches for "Lights Out" and "power out" show me different books.
Anyone know this book or author? I want to reread it.
For me, the french fry is merely a vessel for the ketchup. I LOVE ketchup.
What is your favorite thing to order at your favorite fast food place?
Either the #2 combo at Wendy's (double quarter-pounder with cheese and a strawberry shake), or a little bacon cheeseburger with fries from Five Guys.
Where, in your opinion, has the best fries in the entire world?
ETA: Inspired by eeeeeep's post, how do people who write "two thousand" as 2.000 write decimals??
I mean really?
I'm not feeling it anymore.
This is hypothetical.
Will you tell us what you plans are? How many people come? what color are the bridesmaid dresses? How many bridesmaids/groomsmen? What flowers will you have? What will your dinner be? and most importantly- what will your dress look like?
(I said that I avoid confrontation...after sitting there trying to come up with something for way too long)
Have you been asked any weird questions during interviews?
(She also asked me if I like the Yankees or the Mets and I once had to sell a stapler to someone during an interview)
Should I ...
A) Get pizza (the pizza place is really good)
B) Get a steak&cheese sub (also really good--the best even)
C) Get a salad somewhere...
D) Get a subpar but filling burrito
E) Chinese food
So TQC, WHAT SHOULD I EAT?!
Do you have any phobias?
My biggest fear is coming home to find somebody I love (family member, pet, whoever)... not alive. O_O Silly, right?
Phobia: Cockroaches and centipedes X_X Silent fear lol
I'm doing a document for work, and all of the sudden my columns stopped working properly.
When I select an amount of data, hit the Columns button, and select 2 to break up the data on the paper, instead of filling all of Column A and then the excess moving to Column B... the data will go back and forth between A and B, only filling up half the page.
If that doesn't make sense, here's what it should look like:
And here's what's happening:
Why is this happening? How do I fix it?
Have you ever been diagnosed with a vitamin deficiency? What was it and how did you correct it?
Oh my god. My twelve year old cousin just flew in for two weeks. I didn't realize how hyper she'd be. I need ideas, guys. I don't know what to do with her.
How the do I entertain her??
Where do we go?
What happens while we're there?
Do we ever get home?
IS THERE A LEOPLURADON?
Also, what are the chances of getting salmonella from cookie batter? Not that I ate any, or anything...
So, in mentoning this to me, 'J' says, "You know -- he's uncut." "OK," I respond, "but why do you think I'd be concerned about that?" 'J' replies, "Well, you being Jewish."
I forgot that my Judaism prevents me from eating pork, shellfish and milk with dairy, and, as well, from chewing on foreskin.
Can you describe some innocent, funny things about Jews and Judaism that have been said to you or in earshot of you?
will you take ( Collapse )
What's one of your favourtie small quotes?EDIT: LOL We're all smart-arses here!
I'd like you favourite written small quote, not quotation marks!

It doesn't have to be physical.

Will you tell me about the last fail you had/did/took part in?
Cupcake fail. :( I wanted to bake my bf chocolate cupcakes with mini Reese's cups baked in for his birthday, and first I got the wrong size papers, and THEN in the first batch I made, the Reese's cups sank to the bottom and burned onto the cupcake tin. The second batch I made, I filled the cups WAY too much and it kind of oozed over the sides of the pan onto the floor of the oven. There was enough for 6 more (smaller!!) cupcakes after that, sooo, happy birthday :( lol

i just submitted about how the UPS man came the one 20 minute window this afternoon no one was home.
Which of the following is true for you?
You don't need to elaborate at all, unless you REALLY REALLY want to I guess.
New question, TQC: I'm feeling pretty shitty about abandoning her, should I? Was there anything else I could do?
A girl I talked to maybe twice in high school randomly facebook chatted me, and went from 0-crazy in a matter of minutes.
How do I get out of the conversation with this nutjob? She seems desperately lonely, but really, really batshit.
EDIT: the conversation is really, really long, but her end goes like this:
"Can I ask u for advice? I really like this guy but I think my roommate is trying to date him do u think that's right? Do you think they're meant to be? I mean we were shopping and he smiled at us and was nice to me and I asked for his number and he said yes. We went on a date and it was cool until he tried to take my pants off and I said no but he said its cool. But now my roommate is trying to get with him. Should she? Do u think they'll end up? I can't ask her about it because she's mad at me. I used to have a stalking problem but now I'm on medicine and i can stop thinking about guys if i knew there was no chance do u think there's a chance? I NEED TO KNOW. WHY IS SHE DOING THIS? DO U THINK THEY'LL END UP???"
...I don't know what to say or how to get out of it...
Does the GPS service cost money? Or is it always at work?
Q: Does sneezing sap your energy?
how did seating work?
What, if anything, are you getting your Dad for Father's Day?
Because, seriously, I think there are pills for that, now.
Am I stupid for thinking there's only one fix priced, unlimited internet and phone plan available here? I have this plan (Optus fusion $129 a month). It's expensive but worth it for me since I have school online and pretty much exclusively call mobiles. I've searched around for others but I can't find anything. What plan do you have? Do you like it?
How much do you pay per month for phone and internet? Is it worth it?

For instance, if I'm applying to a telemarketing firm, it could show that I can deal with repetitive work and possibly that I have fast fingers.
1. Slip out the back, Jack
2. Make a new plan, Stan
3. You don’t need to be coy, Roy
4. Hop on the bus, Gus
5. Just drop off the key, Lee
What do you think the other 45 are?
Your ideal breakfast sandwich?
Any ideas? Inexpensive costumes would be preferred, as I'm a broke-ass student.
If you don't care, would you tell me what your favorite play is and why?
If any of them have stopped saving, which are they.?
I have found recently that my pokemon crystal version has lost its save due to the battery going flat, thereby joining my pokemon gold version which went flat ages ago (though for some reason my silver version is still fine, probably cause it was the one I played the most), though my pokemon yellow version is going fine (mostly beause unlike gold silver and crystal, it doesnt need to use extra battery to keep the clock going).
ETA: question marks.
So, that got me thinking...what's your favorite kind of donut, TQC?
I'm an apple fritter man, myself.
I've googled it but it didn't help =[
ETA: I have realised the benefit of locked posts. Thankyou =]
How can I persuade myself that my final English Literature exam which decides whether I get into uni or not went well?

Can you take me higher? To a place where blind men see? Can you take me higher? To a place with __________.
I am everything you want, I am everything you need, I am everything ____________ that you wish you could be.

2. Do you think Renee Zellweger's face (namely, her eyes) is pretty or weird?
Question is, how the devil have we been meddling in their election?
The only thing I've seen was Obama saying that he was going to keep a close eye on Iran. And that's it. Did I miss something?
Or is this a case of Iranian leaders looking for a scapegoat to blame how their county is imploding and exploding at the moment?
Which leads me to the next question, is the US the only country left you can play the blame game with?
And is it the only country you can openly mock and make derogatory remarks about without having someone calling you a bigot? Or is bigotry, bigotry?
edited to make it clearer
Illinois here. Took me like 4 years! Currently I'm missing Arizona and that's the last one I need to make a complete set.
2. Collectors of other things! What do you collect?
Ticket stubs. Well, more like I save all mine, but whatevs it still counts.

How many pots of coffee do you estimate I'll go through in the next 8 hours?
What is something that's effective at keeping you awake when you've been up for too long?
How satisfied have you been with your life lately?
Walking in place is cool, but it's repetitive and just not enough.
Do you have any ideas for little exercises I can do at work when there's nothing else to do? I thought about bringing a jump rope, but I dunno ha
