Is it OK to answer a question with a question?

How do you drink your water?  edit: when I say "how" I mean do you drink bottled water, tap water with ice cubes, room temperature water, filtered water, etc.

Can you touch your toes to your nose?

Did you just try to touch your toes to your nose?


Has anyone ever used bookmooch.com?

I just signed up for it today and added some books to my "inventory" and I already have requests from people who want them!

Any good/bad experiences from this site??

Also, recommend books! Post a picture of the cover if you want. Or a short description.

Bachlorette Party

My friend is getting married next month and is coming to visit right before her wedding. We're throwing together a bachlorette party for her, but I need ideas. There probably won't be any strippers. So any ideas or fun things you've done? I've never been to a bachlorette party.

So, I was going to name my graphic design/invitation/stationary company Interrobang‽ Design Co., but someone already has that name and I am SO PISSED OFF omg.
So I am going with Holly Dolly Design, NYC.
Since I was going to use the interrobang as my logo:

What should I use as my logo now? I want something simple that I can make a stamp out of so I can emboss my stationary and business cards.

NEVERMIND, resolved. No, I'm not that stupid, I'm just tired and frustrated that I had come up with my logo and now I can't use it.

Also, do you have your own business? Have you ever? What do you/did you do?

What's your favorite type of cake? I'm enjoying red velvet right now.

I haven't checked out any new music in a while, so I was wondering:

Would you suggest some bands or really great songs for me to check out? I'll listen to anything and my tastes range from Phil Collins to Cannibal Corpse to Soundgarden and everything in between.

What words or phrases do you have trouble saying or pronouncing (example: anemone)?

Ugh, you guise. I just had one exam (it was administered online and I don't think I did TOO horribly), and I have another one in an hour. Needless to say, I AM STRESSED OUT because my grades in these two classes are based solely on exams (of which there are 4 and 3, respectively). What should I do this afternoon/evening to ~relax~ myself? Srs and non-srs.

Would it be a really bad idea to freeze some (delicious raspberry) wine in a waterbottle into a slushy and take it down to the pool with me and drink it and go swimming?

Have you ever used the Iron Gym?

I just ordered one on Ebay for real cheap, as I've been needing a pullup bar for my home gym. I figure for $30 it's worth the gamble, but I'm still a bit uneasy about the "As Seen on TV" aspect of it.

Will you tell me some stories about times you bought something based on the advertisement that ended up falling miserably short?

I apologize for posting again so soon, but this is really bugging me.

How do you select different user pics to use on different posts/responses? When I use the drop down menu to select a different one, all it gives me are numbers, which I have no real way of knowing which number goes to which picture.

Is there a way other than the drop down menu on the entry page that will show me the pictures so I can see which one I'm selecting, or list them by the comments that I've put on each one to tell me what's what?

Okay, got it.

So...what's the last stupid question you asked that ended up having a real "DUH" answer?


So after years of going back and forth I finally chose and name for my photography company/store.  It's Allie Oop Photography.   But now I'm stuck, I need to make my business cards, and I need to have something to put on the back of my greeting cards which I'm going to sell on etsy but for the life of me I can't come up with a design.  Can you guys help me come up with some ideas?!

So, when they post the schedules every week at work, there is a little disclaimer at the bottom that says something to the effect of, "Clock-in and -out times may change due to .. the level of business." Or something.

But I keep getting to work (on time, mind you), and my GM tells me I'm not to clock in. I'm just to sit in the office, waiting for it to get busy, until I'm allowed to clock in. Disclaimer or no, this is bullshit, y/y? I mean, if he called and told me to stay at home for another hour, that'd be one thing, but..

Anyway, how should I go about handling this situation? My assistant managers all let me clock in when I get there, it's only my general manager I'm having this problem with.

Your space and face

As I'm sure this question has been asked, I will add more to it.

Do you have a Myspace/Facebook/other?
--I have both.

What do you like about it (the site in general, not your personal account)?  What do you hate about it?
--I hate how Myspace added apps and a chat just like Facebook.  I hate how Facebook is a fickle bitch and can't make up it's mind what kind of layout it wants.
--I don't like Myspace (then why do I have it?), and I like the quiz apps on Facebook because I get terribly bored at work.  Plus, I enjoy creeping on assholes from my high school, so I enjoy status updates (which usually include horrible grammar).

Do most of your friends have one as opposed to the other?
--Most of my friends have a Facebook, and I'm sure a good chunk of them have a Myspace, but I don't really care enough about my account to add them.

If you're on Myspace, how many bands are you "friends" with, approximately?
--I don't know...six?  Two of which are local bands I actually know people from.

If you're on Facebook, how many groups are you in, approximately?
--Psht...I lost track.

What could either of these websites do to improve?
--Myspace is a lost cause, I'd say.  And Facebook could add a "dislike" option.

My kind-of-friend, like a really good acquaintance, invited me to her birthday party. However, I never thought she liked me THAT much and I don't really know her friends (she's in the grade above me). I'm almost positive it's not going to be a big party, maybe like 15 girls.
I'm probs not going to go but I'm kinda anti-social anyway. I'd just feel awkward among all these people that I don't really know...

I had the stomach flu Friday-Monday, started eating solid food Monday night. A coworker came in and brought homemade italian sausage and shared it with everyone. The smart thing would have been to say No, thank you. However, starving and delusional, I ate it. Hours later it's all I smell with all the garlic and spices mixed in and it's making me want to get sick all over again. I don't even eat much red meat to begin with, I was just darn hungry! How do I get rid of this smell ASAP? Ugh, it's disgusting.

And, what's the stupidest decision you've made recently?

my housemate's boyfriend has been staying with me for almost three weeks, rent free, whilst his girlfriend and the other two housemates are away with university. this morning, the boyfriend came out of the room he's staying in and told me that I'm a bad housemate because I don't "respect the common areas". I feel like I can't really stand up for myself because I am the youngest (18) and he is 23ish.

tqc, 1, what does he mean by "respect the common areas"?
and 2, is he out of line? I didn't really say anything, but my fiance says I should have told him to shove it.

Specifics: the lingerie sections of the Target and Walmart near me both seem to be geared toward tiny little girls *and tiny little adult women (read: most of the bras there were 32 A or B)... I'm a 38C, which is not giant, so I'm looking for a bra that does not have giant ugly beige cups that come up to my neck, and does have some kind of push-up component. Oh and, this is for fashion rather than function, so it doesn't have to be seamless or invisible under clothes or whatever.

i left some smart ass replies on the mcdonald's personality test and they haven't called me back for a job.

how do i show them i mean business?

edit: well by smart ass replies i mean

they asked how difficult it would be for me to get a job if i don't get that one

i circled "difficult" and wrote "it's a recession eh"

edit: duh i applied other places. i fill out applications seriously and NO ONE calls. in interviews i'm relaxed and i make jokes and people love that. i've tried dumbing down my resume, putting all my experience on my resume, leaving college on, taking it off, different formats, cover letters, telling people i'm not going back to school, telling people i AM going back to school, applying at places i consider to be below mcdonald's, etc and i am STILL unemployed. so i don't have much to lose at this point by leaving a couple of haw haw replies on a job application.

so during pedicures my friend at school, mike, started singing different songs but changing the words to make them about rimming [he's gay].

so we've been thinking of more and more songs that work when you change certain words to any form of "rim".

such as "whoaaaa you're halfway there... whoaaaa rimmin' on a prayer."
or "you can rim if you want to, you can leave your friends behind, 'cause your friends don't rim, and if they don't rim, then they're no friends of mine."
or "you are an obsession, you're my obsession, who do you want me to be to make you rim with me?"

and many other hits.
