do ear lobes ever stop leaving that funny smell on earrings? like i said, mine are four months old and they're still doing it. i want to stretch them soon and other than the smell, they seem fine.
eta: i know tons about stretching after lurking in stretched for quite a while, so i alread know most of the basic information on how to stretch properly, what happens when you stretch too quickly, etc.
Lately , i havent been able to hear as well as i used to. like im always saying "WHAT. HUH? I CANT HEAR YOU" and i've been having alot of ear pain for the past year. on occasion, when i wake up, i feel a huge pressure in my right ear only, and i will also hear rining in my ears.
over the past year, at my job is when i've been noticing it , i can't hear customers alot of the time, and over the drive - through head-set. I can barely hear anyone.
it's starting to be really noticable. and i have to have the tv BLASTING loud in order to hear it at all. im kind of getting scared.
What kind of ear damage do you think i could have?
could i just be losing my hearing?
Have you known anyone that is deaf, or has lost their hearing / has been disabled?
im just curious.
If yes, do you actually write notes in your books or just underline/highlight?
Would you be annoyed, interested or indifferent if a secondhand book you bought had markings or notes in it?
Do you write your name in your books? What about the date(s) you read them? (My grandma does and I think it's kind of a cool idea.)
Doctor Teeth & the Electric Mayhem, right????
fixed to make sense
should i try blueberry muffin squares? it's a store brand cereal that i haven't ever seen in a name brand version.
Can you post some things to cheer me up?
Also, will you post any reassurance that I will find someone better? Personal stories?
What was the last thing you could just think of or remember and it made you smile? What made you think of it?
While I was working, I made a vanilla chai for somebody and the thought of them and the smell just brought me right back to my freshman year of college and getting a vanilla chai with my friend at a Dunkin Donuts in the dead of winter and that reminded me of Christmastime because she and I both hung up lights in our dorm and everything was just so happy. She transferred and I miss her. :(
I really want one.
will you show me your nerdiest picture of yourself?
how much coffee do you think i'll need at work tomorrow?
if gay marriage becomes legal, how would they decide who pays alimony in a divorce?
actually, how do they decide that now? i assume it's changed since sexism was outlawed back in the '70s. is it who makes more?
and what the FUCK IS MICHAEL JACKSON SAYING HALF THE TIME? my whole life i've never been able to figure out what's coming out of his damn jibberish mouth. fuckin' midwesterners.
what scent(s) that is/are generally considered innocuous or pleasant do you dislike?
do you know why?
what scent(s) that is/are generally considered HORRIBLE do you find that you like?
My mom is REALLY upset that none of her kids will friend her. We still can't believe she figured out FB.
It's my turn to bring dinner to a man friend's house, and I can't decide what to bring. I definitely don't want to cook, so I'm thinking something along the lines of rotisserie chicken with ready made sides, or something. The only thing I can think of besides that is Cuban sandwiches and microwave rice with maybe a can of black beans.
Do you have any suggestions for precooked meals I can get from the grocery store? I can reheat stuff up in the microwave if needed. I shop at Publix if that helps.
Is there anyone on TQC you've always wanted to friend, but haven't for some reason or another?
(This is the part where you also respond if you're up for being friended- non meme friending memes for the win!)
Obviously, since I brought it up, I'm looking (but am generally too backward to add anyone first). What's your excuse?
1) Death (ie bought the farm)
2) Feces or the making of (ie deuce)
3) Promiscuity (ie harlot)?
Will you post a picture of yourself so that we can tell you what celebrity you look like?
What creeps you out the most, in terms of bodily harm in movies? Some people can't stand to see a guy get kicked in the balls, while others can't handle anything that has to do with ears-- what is your worst?
How should I package these so they won't get destroyed in transit from GA to AZ?
you get a rug, lamps, etc for the basement, which is basically cement and exposed beams. if you don't live in the basement, it'll just become another living room.
you can't finish the basement! lol.
So over the last couple of weeks I've started having intense dizzy spells out of the blue. I'll be fine, mostly, but every few days I'll have a solid few hours where my head just SWIMS every five or ten minutes. This last spell started yesterday afternoon and was pretty bad all evening, and this morning I've had a couple of moments, but it's largely abated for now. I may go to the clinic tomorrow and get my head checked or something.
What's making this happen, TQC?
(I know, I know--obvs. have babby formed. But, medical miracles aside, what's going on?)
My cousin is staying at my house and he just cut some watermelon up for his breakfast... the smell of watermelon makes me want to throw up, idk what's wrong with me.
Or, if you don't want to touch that - I need to go to the park for a nice long walk. It is 90* here with about 70% humidity right now, but tonight there is a 40% chance of thunderstorms. If I go now, I can't bring my puppydog (TOO HOT for her!!!), but if I go tonight I might get rained on. When should I go??
What's your favorite part about yourself? (physically/characteristic/etc.etc.etc.)
Do you love your life?
Would you ever trade it for someone else's?
I told the landlord about the problems however they don't think it's relating to the apartment we could just have a cold given by each other. My parents don't live around here, they live 1200 miles away. They won't clean the apartment and they won't let us move elsewhere, to a different apartment in their complex. I've been staying in a hotel for the past 3 days.
What do I do?
should i make chocolate chip pancakes this morning?
what's your favorite breakfast food?
I'm about to get on my 4th flight this year alone and I'll have at least 2 more before the year is up.
How do you feel about flying?
I kinda like it, but prefer flying alone. I don't like other people weighing me down, haha.
How closely should director make movie to the original material?
Did you like how Zack Snyder envisioned The Watchmen?
2 guys, locked together in a sort of crunched missionary position, humping away at each other like there's no tomorrow.
If I wanted that kinda action I'd rent gay porn.
What am I missing here?
Do you consider yourself to be 'cool'?
1 and this one I have is on its last legs.
2)What time of the day are you least productive?
3)what's the grossest thing you've eaten?
I think I caught a cold. I have a fever and my face feels like it's going to explode. Missing work today would mean -$54 before taxes, but that's also walking around the Bronx all night. I need to know before 1pm EST: should I go to work?
About a teaspoon here.
How was the healing of that?
Do you use web sites like Pandora and Last.FM?
Are there any web sites dedicated to people's own mix tapes? I stumbled one a while ago but lost it.
have you ever asked it?
What caused the storage center (a long metal shed, basically) to be engulfed in flames?
How many TQC offshoot comms are you part of?
The previous owners of the house I just bought had two cats, and they shed a tremendous amount. As luck would have it, I am extremely allergic to cats. Thus, I really shouldn't put off buying an air purifier any longer. So . . .
What air purifier(s) should I buy?
NOT GOOD. NOT GOOD AT ALL.
Would YOU go to a Decemberists concert with me? Everybody possible has canceled on me. ARG. (this one is mostly rhetorical.)

ETA: How big does someone have to be to get a negative reaction from you?
Though, now my curiosity is piqued. How do you suppose one masturbates incorrectly?

How do you like your bread? Yes, you can only choose one option.

I know this is a long shot, but here's hoping.
I wish I didn't.
Where are you?

What's the last dessert you made yourself?
How would you bring this up with them/gently accuse them? I don't want to start a fight over text and I'll likely never see her again anyway. I've already asked her why some of my stuff wasn't there and she blatantly denied taking anything. I am not stupid.
Do you have any refreshing stories about your housemates/flatmates/roommates?
I'm an amateur photographer and I'm having a hard time coming up with fun ideas D=
I currently sleep in my parents closet. It's a really big closet.
I want my own room. My brothers have their own room but they never sleep in them. They always end up falling asleep in the living room or my room (closet).
The reason I don't want to sleep in the same room as them anymore is because I tired of hearing them fucking, their financial problems or my dad's affair. My parents have this thing where they think I'm deaf of stupid. How do I tell them that, if I did it so bluntly as I did I knew for a fact that my dad is going to beat the shit out of me.
Like one that uploads your favorite shows or you think is just fun? What is it?
Also, have you seen the awsomeness that is A Very Harry Potter Musical
If not or you don't care: what's your biggest pet peeve?
I keep seeing black ice air freshener trees hanging from rear-views and my fiance and I spend a lot of time wondering. We decided I would buy one once I got my license, and today I did. But I figured I'd ask you guys what you think it would smell like before I hang it up.
Why is he climbing the mountain?
What's your favorite type of cheese?
In what year did you graduate high school?

2) How long does the Q&A process take (per person)? How many questions do they ask?
3) Any other jury duty stories you want to share with the group?
4) If you haven't been called, do you want to be?
I've tried LSD and Mushrooms before and enjoyed those. But for some reason it seems kind of like a weak trip.
How long does it last? How powerful is it? Is it like a really weak mushroom trip? Or is it more full blown out of my mind welcome to outerspace voyage?
*not locked for the pansies*
For the rest of you,
How does it feel to be a nerd?
If you owned a business, would it bother you if your student workers did homework after all of their responsibilities were completed?
Have you ever had an embarrassing moment where you snap awake & everyone is laughing at you?
Today during summer school I could not stay awake :(!! Apparently my head was bobbing everywhere and I woke up only when I took a head dive onto the desk. I have a huge bruise on my forehead and everyone laughed :(
My last question is how do you keep yourself awake during those times when you seriously can't keep your eyes open?
For some reason, my office has a box of white plastic piggy banks with the college logo in blue on 1 side. They are nothing special. I'd say in the box, there is at least 30 piggy banks.
For some reason, a woman that works in another department is obsessed with these piggy banks. Every time someone from our office goes down to get supplies/copies/mail stuff, she asks for another piggy bank. She has received several dozen of the damn things.
WTF could she be using these damn thins for!? Why the hell does she need so many freaking plastic piggy banks!?
I never clear mine out, so I currently have *drum roll* 1,101. Oops.
How long have you gone with no sleep?
I drive a '98 Jetta Wolfsburg Edition. It's a manual. Lately, I've been having some problems with it. For awhile, it's been using gas really fast (MUCH faster than that car should, even with the MPG decreasing over time). There's nothing visibly leaking, and nothing smells like gasoline. Now, my check engine light is on. It went on once before but when I let the car sit for awhile, it went off again. This time, I've let the car sit overnight and it hasn't gone off (it's been on for 2 days so far). I'm also having issues with shifting. For some reason, it started shifting really rough into 2nd and 3rd gears every once in awhile. It's basically like the noise that it would make if you didn't depress the clutch all the way, the grinding sound, but I've checked to make sure I've got the clutch all the way in. Sometimes I also have trouble actually getting into 3rd -- I'm in the right place, but it just doesn't want to shift into the damn gear unless I really push it. The only other problem I've noticed is that my oil light goes on when I hit a certain speed and RPM's, but when I got that looked at, they said it's probably just an electrical issue because they couldn't find any leaks or anything like that and my oil levels were fine.
I haven't had the money to get it looked at yet, especially since I've been off work for a few days because of being sick. Does anyone have any idea what may be causing those problems, or if they're even related? I know it's pretty impossible to know what the check engine light is signaling without an OBD-II scanner, but I was thinking that maybe if they're related, someone might know a possible cause :\
And if you don't know/care, what was the last thing that made you happy?
I got into the CNA program/job that I applied for! I start in September, and I'm excited.
I miss school.
In an Fdom Msub relationship, who has the lower self-esteem?

How do you know?
I feel left out because this one girl and I can't get along and I've dealt with her shit for way too long and I finally decided that I don't want to be mixed in her non-ending drama and boy "issues". I never get asked to hang out anymore because they know that something will happen. I'm just the bad guy here because I finally decided to step up and say I am done with her shit. Everyone always talks shit about her when she isn't around, but no one has the guts to say anything because they don't want drama. I put down my towel!
If you haven't, what kind of bed do you have? I have a Full Size Sealy Posturpedic :)
So. I just started cleaning my room and there was a weird smell coming from one of my bags. I come to find that I apparently left a piece of fruit in there over the weekend and OH MY FUCK it looks like there are bugs on the outside.
Bag has been taken out of the house but... wtf do I do about my room? Is vacuuming enough? DO YOU THINK THE BUGS WENT SOMEWHERE ELSE TOO!?
Will you tell me about skeevy stuff like this to make me feel better?
ugh. I think they were maggots. were they maggots? They looked like strawberry seeds. :(
What the eff is going on? Srs and non srs, obv.
ETA: DO you like them? I think freckles are so cute and love that I have a ton.
