Are you unusually creative tonight? (behold, the official question)
What's on the agenda today? Start with breakfast.
What law would you change, or invent?
Right before I cut my hand (and it was epic, let me tell you), my dad and I were joking around and he said, "I'm going to cut you." My dad is a wizard using black magic, y/y?
What did you say?
And do you have your own?
I use my LJ as a blog.
Have you ever cried because of a celebrity who passed away?
I like Dr. Sweets from Bones far too much to be sane right now.
Do you have a guilty pleasure book/tv show/film that you know is crap, but you love anyway?
I just watched the whole series of Bones more or less back to back. It's kind of horrible in its predictability, but I'm liking it a lot.
what made your night awesome?
if it's not awesome, well then..wtf?
Does crushed velvet make anyone else feel almost nauseous like it does me? Especially when you rub it along the "wrong" (aka not soft) direction? My roommate was bringing this is up and UGHHHH. It almost makes me gag. It's just a texture I cannot handle.
What textures can you not handle?
Do you think you will ever do it/ do it again?
On a scale from 1 to AHHHHHHHHH, how freaked out would you be if someone made a secret with a picture of your little brother on it professing their love to him? Totally hypothetical.
What is your favorite fruit?
Do you feel like you missed out on the "golden age of computer RPGs" (eg: eye of the beholder, pools of radiance, ultima 1-3, etc) because you were born after they were popular?
If yes, do you think it's a fun way to waste time? What's the craziest conversation you've ever had?
If you don't care - tell me you love chicken nuggets? Especially the ones from Wendy's.
On an unrelated note, lets say you meet someone on an online dating site and have chatted with them... how would you go about taking that to the next step... what would the next step be? A phone call? straight to the date?
at least good in bed
sexy (to me)
wants kids (eventually)
great in bed
likes board/mmorpg/video/card games
kinky - a little dominant
not too good to clean
what's the last thing you got a good bargain on?
When updating my LJ this morning I was feeling both groggy and hungry, but I like my groggy icon better so I went with that.
What's wrong with my car?
Which is hotter: leather or latex?
Have you ever been on a cruise? Where did you go? What was the best/worst part of the trip?
Guys wearing pink: good or bad?
Will you show us a picture of you wearing your favorite hat?
What was the dumbest argument you ever had about?
Posted via LiveJournal.app.
I got a kitten last week and my other two cats are still adjusting to her. There haven't been any fights so far, though there have been close calls when the kitten starts to get brave/tries to play with the other two. So far when I've been gone, I've kept the kitten in my bedroom. Tomorrow I start a four day teaching institute, and a few of the days will be all day events since there are also evening lectures, but I dunno if I should put the kitten in my room all day or leave her out. Should I leave her out and hope nothing happens or should I keep her in my room until I'm sure nothing will happen while I'm gone? She weighs a little over a pound and the other two are ten pound cats, if that makes a difference.
Also, in a couple weeks, I'm going to NYC. I have a friend who said she'll check on the cats and feed them/clean their litterbox. Since the kitten is on kitten food and my other two are on adult food, how should I do the food? Should I just leave out adult food for the kitten as well? The reason I ask is that when I feed the kitten, if I'm not watching the whole time, the other two will eat her food and not their food (I assume kitten food is tastier). I'm the kind of person that typically leaves food out for my cats, letting them eat when they want rather than at prescribed times, though I've been feeding the kitten intermittently for now.
So my questions are:
What is going to happen to me in Kenya?
Do you have any advice for being away from my family for six months when I've never been away nearly that long?
Finally: GOODBYE, EVERYONE. My internet access will be patchy so I might come on occasionally, but potentially it will be six months without you guys which does make me sad.
How did you get this nickname?
Do your friends usually call you by your real name, or the nickname?
Do you like your nickname?
Yes, Banana. As in "Hannah Banana" minus the Hannah. Several of my friends only call me Banana, some call me Hannie, but most just call me Hannah. I love my nickname, probably because bananas are one of my favorite foods.
Michelle probably could have blown up a building and everyone in the Tanner household would have been all, "Awwww" over it. Stephanie couldn't even get someone to watch her hula hoop, dammit! Don't even get me started on that ho, D.J.
If you don't care about Full House, what are you up to today?
Why do Chinese take-out places insist on giving you spoons with your egg drop soup that are: A) too small to pick up a whole wonton and B) too flimsy to cut a wonton into pick-up-able sizes? What should I do to retaliate for this egregious sin on their part?
Is white rice SUBSTANTIALLY healthier for you than fried rice, or only moderately?
Does your Chinese place of choice willingly provide chopsticks, or are they frugal bastards who make you ask for it...and even then only let you have one set (regardless of whether or not you're taking enough food home for a whole family)?
2. Do you think the most recent nuclear agreement between the United States and Moscow will hold? For all you conspiracy theorists/political realists, do you believe that Obama's meeting with Medvedev has anything to do with the current tensions with Iran? What do you think of Medvedev?
3. What's going to happen in Honduras?
4. Out of all the celebrities/public figures to die in the last month, who are you most sad to see go?
Also what areas are good to stay in that aren't completely run over by bums? Had a bad experience last time staying at a Super 8 and a topless woman bum got down on her knees and begged me for a dollar when I was trying to unload my suitcase from the car. :-(
What is your favorite kind of cheese? What do you like to do with cheese? Ever eaten cheese and pickles together? I like to take a bite of cheese and take a bite of pickle and chew em around in my mouth. The flavors are awesome!
did it ever piss you off that they would never give the Rabbit Trix?
was it shitty of me to have asked three people? I was just trying to cover my bases.
Which of these are trufax about you?
Last set. These?
I love Daisy of Love, mostly because of Fox. He was hysterical.
Are you going anywhere on vacation this year?
In High School, did you play sports? If so, which ones?
What would you eat before you worked out/had practice?
If you didn't do sports, what did you do outside of school?
Or do you think the people who shell out extra $$ for these products are suckers and overall not much better off than those who purchase conventional items?
what's you favorite summer fruit/veggie?
what did you eat last?
watermelon and Michigan Cherries
Does it really change with wieght gain, etc?
My boyfriend wants to know my ring size.. I recall when he took me to look at a few engagement rings about 8 months ago. I think I was a size 5
When I went 2 weeks ago I was 4 1/2.
I have really tiny hands.

What's for dinner?

What about fruits?
Will you help me, tqc?
What's an excellent way of saying "I'm sorry you feel that way" without sounding condescending?
What was the last item that was given to you for free?
I was making a stop at Whole Foods yesterday and on my way in, I smiled and waved at a girl promoting Ten Thousand Villages (there are always people doing something like this, painting, giving massages, selling plants or soap) and she offered me a little blue bird ornament as a free gift! (Along with a 15% off coupon.) The next guy just blew her off without listening to what she was offering. He totally missed out.
What should I name my new fair-trade friend?
Edit Now with photo! (Check comments.)
Please post pictures to back up your convictions
Should I get an ice cream maker? Is the ice cream good texture-wise (like, smooth and churned-y and creamy)?
How 'bout a paid account? I know people ask this a bunch so you don't have to reply if you don't want. But I can't decide how awesome it would be. I don't like icons much but I do like the "expand" feature.
edit:( Collapse )
If not, what's your favourite thing about the internet?
2. Can you teach me how to whistle? As in, fingers in mouth loud wolf whistle kind of thing?
3. I'm eating amazing chocolate cake right now. Exactly how jealous are you?
ETA: I've decided on VH1, since I've been told their broadcast is commercial-free.
For me, it would have to be snorkeling.
I'll swap it out with a new post
A) How much money do you think you could get if you recycled the Tin Man?
B) Was the Cowardly Lion housebroken?
C) If the Ruby Slippers could teleport you home, what do you think Emerald Slippers would do?
Should I make her be the DD? I don't dance and I hate most of the people there so the most I could do was get drunk and play DS.
What's for dinner?
Are you going to the midnight showing of Harry Potter 6? I AM!
Is my cat an orange tabby? You would think so since he's orange, but he's not orange all over.
What's your favorite food to eat with a utensil?
1: When you're caring for a baby, which reaction would be most similar to yours? Or would you react in a way that I haven't described?
Related, I was out today and a guy was getting his hair cut. He had his 6-month-old daughter (I assume 6 months since she just started eating solids last week but I could be wrong) and she was crying in her car seat that was placed on the chair next to her dad. Since the dad was getting his hair cut, he couldn't hold her or really do anything but he said to her "What? Why you crying? You're a girl. There's no reason to cry."
2: Would would be your immediate reaction upon hearing that?
I just cocked my head and went O_o because I was confused.

Edit:bigger myspace pic.
This guy is a creeper, Y/N? I think it's even creepier that he would subscribe to me when I posted a video about my SICK FATHER.
If so, link plz.
To whose will do you surrender?
Whenever my dad receives a piece of mail with either my brother's or my name on it (neither of us is a minor) that has a card in it from the bank, he automatically shreds it...even if it's a renewal of a debit card that we actually want instead of the bank sending us an unsolicited credit card. I told my parents that anything they receive with my name on it, just put it in my room. Why do they throw stuff away?
Let me ask this of the married TQC-ers... How long after the initial engagement did your wedding occur?
Are any of you currently in the planning stages?
And for non-engaged and non-married TQC-ers... What is your favorite flavor of cake?
Have you ever had your hair cut at a beauty school? How did it turn out?
Pix if you want.
NOTE: Funny looking meaning that it's the kind of dog where, if you take it out, people point and giggle and say LOOKITTHATFUNNYLOOKINDOG!
Also, I’m thinking about getting dinner from In-N-Out Burger. I like to order a grilled cheese and add a Boca Burger patty to it at home. My dilemma though... fresh onions or grilled? And should I eat my fries on the way home while they’re hot, or save them to eat alongside my burger?
Would you click the "Random article" link on Wikipedia several times and then post them to see if there're any connections to be made between them?
If so: ( Collapse )
Do you like Cheez-Its?
Do you have posters [concert, art galleries, etc.] in your house/room? Did you have them framed, buy a cheaper frame, or just hang them sans frame? If without frame, what did you use to hold it?
What is your non-alcoholic beverage of choice? Alcoholic?
Water; pineapple rum
Her owner does not discipline her beyond an 'aw, don't do that' and gets quite upset when other members of the household attempt to discipline her or talk to him about her.
What can be done to stop this behavior? Moving elsewhere is not an option.
Normally, you'd use author name and page number.
But if the part you are quoting is where the author quoted someone else, but did not provide the actual source of the quote(just lead into it with who said it), how do you do an in-text citation for this?
To get exactly specific, I am quoting Arisotle's definition of a tragedy as stated in Literature: Reading Fiction, Poetry, and Drama 6th Edition , by Robert DiYanni. If I credit it to Aristotle, then the actual source for the quotation is obscured. If I credit to DiYanni, the person who said it is obscured.
I'm thinking go with "Aristotle said 'bla bla bla'(DiYanni 1265)", is this correct?
Given that Aristotle wrote in Greek, identifying the source of the English translation I'm using might be somewhat important. I'd go to DiYanni's source directly if I knew what it was.
If so, what types of things do you tend to eat?
Do you have an SO? If so, how did you meet?
My eye gets caught by ants. Any ribbon or swarm of ants distracts me to the point that I have to go poke them with a stick or disturb them by blowing on them. Fun times!
If you could play only one song on an instrument, what song would it be, and what instrument?
So, when Brits use # (the "hash symbol"), what is it used for? And what does "hash" mean?
I understand what "number sign" and "pound sign" (the other names for the symbol) both refer to, since it can be used as #1 (number one) or 1# (one pound of weight), but what is a "hash"?
Can't # still mean pounds (weight) in England? It's not like we pretend kilograms don't exist in the U.S.
How many distinct varieties of fart smells can you name? I feel like there are three or four archetypal odors.
Are you one of those "nice" people?
What are your thoughts on it?
I think it's utter bullshit, but Dad says he built "a machine" and has a whole bottle. He thinks it's a miracle cure for everything; I think he's one step away from wearing a tin-foil hat.
what's your idea of bad sex?
(please be specific.)
WHY DID I MISS THIS SHOW FOR 19 YEARS OF MY LIFE? Ugh, I am so stupid.
Can you write backwards? How about in cursive? Or can your write backwards in cursive?
I have a manatee necklace. Are you jealous? Rate your jealousy from 1-10 (1 being least)
I'm going to on a five day mini-tour with a band. In a van with no a/c. In Florida. In July.
What kinds of foods could I take/would you take that would keep without having to be refrigerated?
so far I have Pretzel Goldfish, which we've developed an addiction for, and a loaf of bread and peanut butter/honey.
we're very low on funds, so eating at restaurants isn't an option, so we have to take the main bulk of our own food.
i'm thinking of making some tater tots. what's a good thing to dip tater tots into that is not ketchup or ranch dressing? i like ketchup but sometimes it's nice to have some variety.
What was the song and the event?
my midnight snack = radish cakes or gnocchi? both are frozen. IDK what I'd put on the gnocchi. OOH or jja-jang-myun (noodles with black bean sauce) ramen?
If no - what's the most alcohol you've ever had in a night? How'd that go for you?
Besides living expenses, what do you spend your paycheck on?
Alternately, you would be guaranteed to lose if the topic of the question was: ______________? Anything to do with sports.
I held one of the flags when they did the alligence and said the 'waves of grain' thing and such. Then they would call each person's name and they would go to the front and say a poem. Mine was Rain Rain Go Away. I was so nervous from the whole thing I got hives all over my body.

Since most are saying they didn't have one or don't remember: What are some good stories from your kindergarten days? or just anything about your kindergarten?
besides a ghost, what else could she be looking at?
