TELL ME INTERNETS, WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?
Eta: They want your opinion (not just friending you), and want to keep talking about it in detail. And it's the kind of music that, if they were good, you would like it.
As far as I know, all you have to do is go to the syndication page and enter the feed URL and then choose hollydollynyc as the username. My LJ friends I spoke to were complaining that they rarely read blogs outside of LJ.
I'll seriously do something awesome for you.
For those who don't care or don't have a paid account,
i'm looking for some new music...
what are some upbeat, jazzy songs that preferably have some sax in them?... vocals or no vocals, doesn't matter
and on the other end of things, what are some really mellow, trippy electronic-ish songs?
and any other song you think is absolutely worth it to have in my music library :)
edit: and some music that sounds intense like the pink panther theme or the music from the incredibles
If you have any, what would you say is your biggest regret?
I don't really believe in it for myself, and aside from that, I haven't made any decisions that I think would be really worth regretting. I think every experience is valuable, so I don't regret anything.
Me and my friends love IHOP and at least once a week make an hour long (one way) midnight trip to the nearest IHOP
TQC.. will I go blind?
I have a week until I can take a test, or know by my period.

I'm sorry if this offended anyone, I suppose.
Has anyone here ever smelled elderberries before?
If so, what exactly do they smell like?
If not, what do you think they smell like?
2. What's the oddest smell that you love?
did you enjoy it?
have you ever had any run-ins with people who reeked of sex (say, went over a friends house and they had clearly just "finished up" with their SO)?
care to share any funny and/or interesting stories? does not have to be about sex or smells, i'm just bored.
Quotes, mantras, proverbs, posters, etc. The source doesn't matter, but if you know who said or authored it, please note.
What do you do?
it says this:
Please don't shut the door all the way today. I'm expecting a package so the UPS man needs to be able to get in if I'm not home. Thank you! I promise we can shut the door again this evening. :)
what is exactly 'unlimited' and completely free with this plan?
what about apps like pandora, xm radio, music videos? when i go to them it says ihave to subscribe for a price, but does that not apply to me?
what about GPS?
all i know right now is that i cant use TV without being charged. is that the only thing i would get charged for with this plan? (besides things like buying ringtones/wallpapers)
What is the seat of that county?
Are there any other haircare products I can use to make the dandruff GO AWAY? Or maybe a different shampoo (but I don't understand why Head and Shoulders would suddenly stop working for me after so many years)? Any suggestions?
I have a choice as to which bus company to use.
Option 1 PROS
-15 dollars as of now. The prices change the closer you get to the date of departure.
-Has WiFi and electrical outlets
-On the same street as ridiculously cheap Chinese bakery that DOESN'T give me the runs
-The drivers speak clearly
OPTION 1 CONS
-No real ticket office to speak of, so if I get lost, I'm screwed.
-WiFi means that I'd have another (semi-heavy) bag to lug around
-Buses stop being hourly after the 6:30 bus. I have to take a crosstown bus and a local train to get to the intersection where the bus is, and the C train has a tendency to be a doucherocket. Therefore, I might miss my bus. And then I'd be out fifteen dollars and screwed.
OPTION 2 PROS
-15 dollars all the time. This means that if I wait until the last minute, I'm not going to pay more than 15 dollars. I will get a seat because I am leaving on a Wednesday.
-It's on a train line I use for work, which means I can take the express almost all the way and then switch to a local and get from where I work to where I need to be in 20 minutes, which (if I run like the dickens) means I could potentially nab a bus an hour earlier.
-It's ALSO near a ridiculously cheap Chinese bakery.
OPTION 2 CONS
-Bus company has a reputation for flipping over, bursting into flames
-Said Chinese bakery DOES give me the runs
-Can't understand the drivers
-No WiFi, which means I will have nothing to do. I have an iPod, but I haven't listened to music in about a month due to a traumatic event and don't need to have an emotional breakdown on a bus.
Both buses would drop me off at the same place.
WHICH ONE DO I TAKE? Serious and non-serious answers welcome!
ETA: OK, geez. The question was kind of stupid. Y'all don't have to freak out on me.
What are you looking forward to?
What is the most ridiculous thing you've ever fought about?
Right now, there are two "fights" going on around me. One friend told another friend's BF, upon finding out that his grandfather was on life support and the family was waiting for him to arrive at the hospital so they could 'let him go', that she didn't care because "everyone dies at some point." I understand there is some truth behind this but the BF and this friend are supposed to be very close.
Also, I found out today that another friend, who is getting married in a few months, is upset with another group of our friends because they will be in the same country at the time of her honeymoon.
What shapes can you roll your tongue into?
Who did you see and were they good?
Aside from getting there early, how can I go about squeezing through a shitload of fans and getting to the front? Methods? Success stories?
On another note completly....have you ever used dry shampoo? How good is it?
"What do you feel would be a minimally acceptable rate of pay? (ex. 8.00)"
And then it gives you $__.__ and you have to fill in the blanks. Is there an appropriate answer for this? I usually put negotiable but that's not an option here
Anyone own one?
Is there a better way to say this?
jes, the pill/condamns
if so, when did you start?
have you heard of seasonique?
(it makes you have 4 periods insead of 12)
When my kitty died in April, we had him cremated at this awesome place - the people there were super nice, there was no pressure to buy anything other than the service, it was done that day and afterwards they made a donation to a local no kill shelter in my kitty's name. I would gladly recommend them to any and everyone who has a pet and is considering cremation.
I want to let him know of them and how great they were so if he needs something like that, he and Gremlin will be treated well. But I don't know how to bring it up without it being weird. He's obviously aware these are his final hours with his little buddy, but I don't want to remind him of how short the time left really is. I don't want to wait too long and risk him doing something before I tell him about them. How would you go about it, TQC?
City watch first, and then witches. I include the Tiffany Aching books in witches.
2)If you don't read Discworld, would you allow your 16 year old daughter to have boys in her room with the door closed?
3)What is the worst book you've ever read?
...but I know I'm kind of in the minority on that particular opinion.
As I know some of you have probably never ever watched it, to the rest that did catch more than a few episodes (I've seen the whole series more than once) what particular issues did you have with it? Did species that should not've been encountered so early figure into your dislike of the series or did you enjoy how they handled those situations?
Did any of you actually enjoy Enterprise at all?
1. Has this ever happened to you?
2. What do you think I should do to try to fix it? (I don't have the money to buy a new Microsoft Word, and I lost the installation CD a long time ago)
3. What are my alternatives?
A. people who get offended by every little thing, or
B. people who like to make loud and embarrassing asshole statements
With no sort of comfortable medium, which one would you choose and why?
Do you have any anecdotes about people you already know, who fit either of those types?
I'm using Firefox. How do I screencap?
Thanks guys.Edit: Got it, thanks. :)

I guess for me it is Mad Men. Fucking awesome!
This may be a silly question, but I'm challenged in the domestic work department. If it's 100% polyester, is it ok to just throw it in a cold water wash? I'm a little hesitant because it's one of the really expensive replica jerseys and I feel like I should have to do some fancy washing tricks with it.
(lol, my coworker took off his button up shirt so it wouldn't get wet in the rain, and was walking back to his desk with just a white t-shirt on)
if so, what kind?
Have you ever ordered weight loss supplements online that are banned such as ephedrine? Where did you order from?
Why is it so hard for people to see that government destroys everything they touch?
*please put politics aside on this one, its not a political debate, its a debate on government
will you tell me about the last time you failed with a meal?
Should I watch Year One, then The Hangover *or* Up, then Night at the Museum?
Or should I watch Up, then drive over to watch The Hangover?
What was the last movie you saw in theatres?
What was the last movie you rented?
What about your face, how often do wash that? And with what?
1. If you can remember, what books did you read (in school) in 6th grade?
2. 7th grade?
3. 8th grade?

I think it would be female, I cal her Elle Jay.
However, I have not seen her in years, and back in the sandbox I didn't show any symptoms of having an eating disorder; I've left her in the dark about it for all these years. We've been distanced for quite some time and have only kept in touch using facebook. We will become roommates soon, and I'm not sure if I should tell her about my disorder.
Would you tell your roommate if you had an eating disorder?
Also, having an eating disorder can be a tremendous inconvenience to other people in addition to the individual with the illness. Assuming the role of my friend, do you think you would honestly feel comfortable sharing a flat with someone like me?
It's more than double my current rent, but there are 3 meals a day and lots of friends from around the world to make. Do you think it'll be worth it? I don't think I'll be seeing my BF as much though :/ Still, I feel like I'll always regret giving up the opportunity to experience it (accomm here is quite different from accomm in the UK - the ones in aus are more... close knit?)
also, i haven't told my current flatmate and the next term starts in 5 weeks.
what are some additional things i should consider TQC?
(I'm looking for good things, though I know some people have shitty fathers, but one positive thing? hopefully?)
Oh and I ended up naming my baby lionhead bunny Pepper and our Sun Conure, Kirk.
EDIT: My boy read all the comments and has decided on Elton John. Woo! Thanks guys :D
As soon as Solomon read the inscription, the smile vanished from his face. The jeweler had written three Hebrew letters on the gold band: gimel, zayin, yud, which began the words "Gam zeh ya'avor" -- "This too shall pass."
Is this saying that the ring was basically carved with the WTF of the Jewish days of yore? It was literally the first letter of each word, but it was a common enough phrase that the meaning was easily interpreted?
what percentage of the population is date-able?
babies: what percentage are actually cute immediately after birth?
I am having Sims 3 problems! Halp me!
I have two Sims that are engaged. I'm trying to marry them. They live together, and when I go to 'romantic' I get a private wedding option. When I click it they look at each other and then one will talk or think and the other's face will appear in their little balloon before they walk away from each other, still just engaged. I tried throwing a wedding party and the same thing happened when I selected 'get married'. How can I marry my Sims to each other?!
Interpretation up to you.
I firmly take back anything nice I had to say about any/all mail delivery services. Today I got another UPS doortag when I was in the next room, and no one knocked! But much more depressingly, I checked up on a super-important USPS package I've been waiting on and saw that it got delivered A WEEK AGO. I was home and left for work shortly after the time it says it was delivered...plus I stick my head out the window every half hour or hour to check my mailbox...but I never saw it! In fact, I didn't get any mail that day.
I went in to the PO but it looks like there's not much they feel like doing.
WHAT CAN I DO?
Should I change it to a less offensive one so as to not offend the delicate flowers that frequent LJ?
what is your opinion on www.wnd.com/news/article.asp <-- that article?
do you know any "healthy" foods that have little-known negative effects? what are they?
Bonus question: Did you know that gumbo file is a carcinogen?
My sister, 18 years old, is throwing temper tantrums because she expects our parents to by her a vehicle, and they refuse to do it. Not just buy her the car and she'll pay for the rest...she wants them to pay for the car, insurance, and MAYBE she'll buy the gas for it once in a while. She says most kids are treated to this. Obviously, that's bullshit, but I want to see if this ever, in the history of the modern world, has been the case.
Should I be worried because my interview was so short? Or did they just realize in that short time that I am perfect for the job ;)?
( Collapse )
The name she had at the shelter was Jelly Bean, but we've been thinking of changing it-- she doesn't respond to it anyway (then again, do cats really ever come when you call?). She's missing a foot so my sister wants to name her Peg-leg, but I think that's too obvious. And I can't think of any famous female pirates besides fictional ones. :(
Does anyone have any name suggestions? Doesn't have to be pirate related!
Do you go have fun or do you save the hundred bucks?
Can you suggest a different delicious (and strong) drink that will be easier for the bar girl to make?
Is it silly of me to stop drinking them for the bar girls sake?
Will you interpret what this sign means? Feel free to be as serious or creative as possible.
I am unemployed right now, so I can't meet anyone through work. I volunteer as a Big Sister, but have not been able to make any social connections through that. I looked up my city on meetup.com and there's nothing close to me.
( Collapse )
If this doesn't interest you...
What was the last thing that you ate and drink? Was it delicious?
Something along the same vein as Seth Rogen, Ricky Gervais and Simon Pegg movies (lol do I have bad taste in movies?)
Do you think these clubs should exist? Why or why not?
What type of shampoo do you use?
**Edited because I forgot the link!**
What is your favorite pair of high heels?
Where are they from?
Pictures are always good.
I haven't, but I'm watching a recent episode now and wow Gabby has a six year old and Lynette's son Preston is 18. Bree wants to divorce Muad'dib!
If you are, which of these statements applies to you most?
a) “I believe that I have made commitments to my future career and life. A while back, however, I had a rough time deciding what I wanted to do with my life.”
b) “I really don’t know what I want to do with my life, but I am trying to make up my mind about my options. I guess I’m having an identity crisis.”
c) “I know what commitments I am going to make in my life. Seems like I always have known where I’m heading. I can’t remember it being very difficult to decide.”d) “I really don’t know what I want to do with my life, but I’m not losing any sleep over it. Sometime I’ll decide what I want to do, but not right now.”
Will you try? I need cheering up.
I've got a friend, a great guy, who still lives with his parents- but he makes enough to support himself. His parents never really made him go out on his own, so he's scared now to go out and do anything.
He seems to want to change, or at least find others like him that aren't complete losers, and I really want to help him out but I feel like it's a lost case :(
How old were you when you moved out of your parent's house?
How could I say this more articulately?
which band with members from blink 182 (angels and airwaves, +44, box car racer, any other band from before then) do you like best?
i'm sure ppl will be annoyed i'm even saying blink 182 or its affiliates are likeable but wtfever, guys.
srsly though, whatever happened to robot jones? i can't find any videos of it online.
Otherwise, what's the wordiest insult you can think of?
( Collapse )
~~~*some of you know that this post means to take a shot*~~~
( Collapse )
Like maybe cussing someone out? Showing up several hours late every day? Looking at porn on your work computer?
Which one would be the absolute best?
How many of you still have your biological fathers in your lives? How is your relationship with them? How do you plan on celebrating Father's Day?
If not, why? You don't have to get too specific if you don't want to. Do you have a father figure who is not your biological father?
My father died of cancer when I was 7. Of course when everyone learns that, they act like it's the most tragic thing ever, even though they usually couldn't care less.
Did anyone else here have to deal with a parent's death at a young age? How did you deal with it?
Sorry to be such a downer. I promise I'll make it up next time.:P
Who was your favorite Ghostbuster?
If you are a freak and don't like Ghostbusters, why are you so lame?
1. chicken nuggets
2. french fries
3. corn chips
What have you found that works best for feeling better when you have a stomach virus/food poisoning?
Do your parents believe in any old wives' tales?
If life was Dawson's Creek, who would you be?
If life was Buffy the Vampire Slayer, how would you kill Dawn?
Mine: I just woke up from it this morning. It pretty much revolved around people dying. It started out with Beyonce collapsing on stage(lol, of all people) and dying a few hours later in the hospital, then several other people died until eventually...my mom. That severely freaked me out, I was so relieved when I woke up and saw her walking into my room.
BUT this dream is still bothering me. Do you think a dream about a loved one's death is a bad sign?
If you don't pass the test, what would you do? Take the semester off? Go to school and take other classes that interest you? You've got the financial aid to go to school, so the cost isn't a direct concern.
And if you do go to school in the fall semester, what kind of courses would you take?
I am good in the kitchen, have a really fantastic farmer's market (they have fresh fruit of any kind, plus fancy chocolates and a bazillion different kinds of nuts) near me, and my dad likes EVERYTHING, so I am open to all options.
...I hate them so much.
My uncle (who has since passed on) was on the team that invented the plastic bottle caps that you twist! Everytime I open a water bottle/soda/anything with a twist off cap (so basically everything) I always think of him!
I've been a writer basically all my life and have intermittently dreamed of becoming an author since I was about eight years old, but I really suck at writing. Is fate so cruel that the thing I love to do most is something I have zero talent for?
I mean, for the past several years I've barely been able to write at all, but when I do try the quality is extremely poor.
