What are the reasons you'd delete someone from your friends' list?
What's the highest math class you've taken?
Aer Lingus only seems to fly at 6.30am in the morning and as for RyanAir, I don't really want to fly with an airline which is considering putting coin-operated slots on the toilet doors (plus they're dropping their checked baggage limit yet again from 15kg to 12kg)
Twenty-Ten for the year 2010
Two thousand ten for the year 2010?
I am personally planning on saying "two thousand ____" for always and ever. I think.
I'm thinking my paycheck bounced, since they usually take out the check plus a $15 fee. But it doesn't show up as anything.
What do I do? I'm calling tomorrow to see what's up. This is like the 3rd or 4th time my paycheck has bounced too.
1. Will you go to http://omegle.com and have some ridiculous conversations with random weirdos and post them here? If not, will post some other amusing things?
And stolen from something on Facebook:
2. In the movie about your life, who would play:
You? Sarah Chalke
Your love interest? Paul Rudd
A parent? Meryl Streep
Your best friend? Isla Fisher
Your worst enemy? Jimmy Fallon (If I get to punch him)
Post pics of both if you like.
Yes, I'm bored. :D
In elementary school, I found it. Tried it. Got bored. In high school, it became super popular really quickly, so I went back to it (peer pressure word) and wrote almost every day. Sometimes twice. Oi. Then I slowed down halfway through high school, used it casually.Oh, and up until grade ten, it was public but that changed to friends only. Used it casually at university, fairly frequently when I worked out of province for half a year, and now, maybe I write 4 times a month..... hmmm....
2. What was the last bit of technology you came across that really impressed you?
A friend of mine was playing a flipbook drawing game on her DSi tonight, and there is a tool that will colour in an object IF YOU BLOW ON THE SCREEN!!! Neat.
Care to elaborate? How did you resolve the situation? What happened?
I think I've got myself in a mess, but I'm...happy with the mess. :\
do you think your friends should pay you back money they borrowed? would your answer change if they borrowed a small amount?
what is the best way to deal with someone who cares about stuff that is none of their business? i have a friend who is extremely cheap and always hassles me about the money i spend. i want her to realize that she doesn't get to tell me how to spend my money just because we're friends.
I'm going to the dealership tomorrow, is it unreasonable/unlikely to demand they pay for my registration because of the huge inconvenience? What do I do/say? I don't want to be a bitch but this has been a huge pain in the ass, especially after being assured I would receive the paperwork by the date I needed to register my car and the post office assuring me I received all the mail they sent me.
Or is it just not meant to be that specific?
Getting dressed was such an amazingly unpleasant experience this morning. D:
Will you please show us all a picture of:
A) You and your pet together?
B) Your pet looking grumpy?
use the icon with your reply
my Angst playlist
my OH MY GOD THE WORLD IS ENDING HERE IS HARD ROCK MUSIC playlist
my TECHNO DANCE playlist
MY foreign language not in english music (pretty much any language you can imagine)
my indie rock (which is stuff I consider "indie" and stuff played on the local alternative radio station)
or my Very Very Important Stuff which consists of about 130 of my most played songs
What are you doing right now besides being on TQC? I'm forestalling looking for jobs because every time I apply, I get an email back saying, "No, you don't fit what we're looking for, sorry, you failure" and I make a walrus face like this ;_;
First I have to be a scallop. So I make up this song about being a scallop in love, which began with me twirling en pointe in a circle and saying "scallop scallop scallop" over and over again. Finally I start singing about "clapping my shell to move away and landing next to another scallop to make scallopy love all day."
Then I have to enact a scene from Casablanca, and finally he tells me to be a squirrel.
At this point I'm still naked and I have to pee, so I go up to him to ask if I can have a few minutes to pee before being a squirrel, and the only thing I can think of to help me be a squirrel is Eddie Izzard's sketch about hiding his makeup in a tree, and having the squirrel being covered in make up, and him stopping and thinking, "did I leave the gas on" "no I'm a fucking squirrel." And I can't say fuck in front of kids its horrible and then I woke up cause I really really had to pee.
WTF does this dream mean?
is it crazy that i've spent that much in a month without any crazy shopping sprees? D: it should last me two months, realistically.
is it also crazy that i have fucking tanlines on my feet, and it's WINTER here? :(
This is for the senior of lurkers. Was there a reason for the discontinuation of tags being used for entries? It seems like it stopped sometime in 2005 or so.
I have a friend who has just finished her conversion to Judaism and I'd like to get her a small gift for the occasion. The problem is that I have no idea what would be appropriate. (I'm not Jewish and I grew up in a very catholic neighborhood.)
Besides a Star of David,(I'm pretty sure she has a few) what would be a good gift?
Are you going to upgrade to Snow Leopard? I just bought mine and am super excited because I've been running Tiger for far too long.
2. How do I become a flight attendant? Do you think this is a good job?
What happened to my printer and why is it broken? Non-serious answers obviously.
You and your friend just had dinner at a fine restaurant, and you're waiting for him/her to emerge from the restroom. You're standing in front of the restaurant, looking idle, when someone pulls up in the sleekest sportscar you've ever seen. The well groomed, extremely well-dressed man steps out, throws you the keys and a $50 bill, and tells you to park it carefully. He assumed you were the valet. He enters the restaurant, unaware that it doesn't have a valet service. No one else is on the street/sidewalk. Your friend joins up with you. What do you do?
- What do you think of all the white Asian wannabes? (Wapanese and Weeaboos)
- Is imitation really the highest form of flattery in this case? Or is it just darn insulting?
For everyone else...
- What book would you like to see made into a movie?
Do you worry about things being lost in translation?
Who's a good writer comparable to Haruki Murakami?
I would prefer a someone who's an English writer, as when I read Haruki Murakami I always get a feeling something is lost in translation.
since no one likes my srs question:
Would you rather get raped by your father or a stranger?
So TQC, what music should I fill it with? (No country/religious music, plz)
Can I install programs on this thing? Like I have computer games at home, could I hook this drive up to my laptop and install the game on it? Then when I take the drive to work and hook it up to my desktop, I have the game?
Does that make sense?
It is Friday! What are you doing this weekend?
ETA: What brand of mp3 player is best? I've had a Creative, iPod, and RCA. My husband is looking at a Coby (I've had limited experience with their electronics..), are those any good?
I missed you all, how are you?
Washcloth: How often do you wash it?
Loofah: Is it true they just build up bacteria? D:
What applications/games would you recommend for it?
Do you name things when you buy them? I named my Ipod Touch Chrissie... :)
When I tell people what I'm doing, I get a mixed bag of responses. I either get "Oh, that's really cool!" or "Uh, that's weird."
TQC, is it weird? If so, why?
( Collapse )
I was going to make fun of her but then I remembered that I've lost an argument with a GPS and, well, glass houses and all that jazz.
Have you ever lost an argument with an animal or inanimate object TQC? Or is my whole family lame for giving up to the will of lower lifeforms?
If so, what celebrity Twitters do you read?*
*share the links so we might all enjoy!
( Collapse )
In before Nancy Grace.
Edit: I have no camera available right now, and I can't paint or draw to save my life. Please don't hold ( Collapse )
Neither one of you notice (you did not purposefully ignore the mistake). Then after you leave, the cashier realizes her mistake. She tells your friend of the mistake and says she wants to fix the charge the next time you come in (Monday for this one).
Would you let her fix it, or say "oh well, you fucked up, too bad?"
What kind of foods do you normally eat/buy?
Do you eat out (including fast food and anything that doesn't include the food you buy at the grocery store) often? If yes, would your answer to the first question change if you ate only what you bought at the store?
EDIT: Some people asked, and I guess I should have clarified: This does include toiletries and cleaning supplies. Shampoo, soap, cleaning products, laundry detergent, et cetera.
What shampoo + conditioner do you use? What does it do for your hair?
she's really cool and everything.. i'm not too worried about her getting angry but i have no idea how to do this. it was only $158 but she's a waitress, and no one in this house is exactly rolling in it. i have some savings so if she just paid me over time i wouldn't mind. i just seriously don't know what to do.
TQC, did my kid's cute, sweet, Christian babysitter go snooping and find the things in my goody drawer and get so shocked that she's now avoiding me? Or is she just really busy because she just moved to college last week? She keeps posting status updates to Facebook, so I know she's there. I am really sad because it's very hard to find a good babysitter.
Did you ever go snooping while you were babysitting and find something good?
How many friends do you have in the military?
A very good friend of mine just joined the army, and a friend's boyfriend just joined the navy. Prior to last month, I knew no one.
Any ideas for how to make a cute party based around these stupid Teddy bears?
I have blank invites that I'll be printing, so any suggestions for those would be fun, too.
If so, which one?
And for how long?
Are you a fan of Radiohead?
Do you have a favourite album of theirs?
Whens the last time you did the Robot?
If you had to pick between (cheddar and onion) pierogies or chili for dinner, which would you choose? THERE ARE NO OTHER OPTIONS.
What's your favorite word/number game? Least favorites?
I love word searches, and sudoku. I HATE crosswords because they make me feel like a big giant idiot. :|
I have Baileys because I am a little girl who likes sweet drinks. However, the fridge door is fucked up, so it doesn't always stay shut (IE: stay cold) Is it okay to drink or will I have die on the cold linoleum floor in a pool of my own vomit? (even if I don't drink heavily)
Now...again...there's another payment. Last time was for $300, this time it was for $236. Maybe some of you guys get something like this from time to time, so hopefully you can recognize the numbers or whatever..

The first time, we thought maybe it had to do with my husband's military service. But we've since changed bank accounts, and this arrived at our old account. All my husband's military reimbursements have been arriving at our new account with no problem.
So anyone know what this is?!
Srs and nonsrs answers welcome.
For those who don't give a fuck...
What did you eat last?
1. Are there any Japanese media stores or malls in or around the San Antonio, Texas area?
2. I'm looking for a website that sells used, older manga, and I mean in Japanese, not English. I don't care if the site is totally in Japanese, as long as they're reliable and ship internationally. Can anyone help? There must be somebody in the LJ-verse who holds the answer. Yes, I know about JPQueen, but they closed awhile back :(

What OTC medications/supplements do you take on a regular basis?
ETA: When is the last time you felt pretty? I get so sad watching What Not To Wear when I see these people who have never felt pretty. :(
It would cost a lot more and neither of us would drink any, and maybe a handful of family members and a handful of friends would actually drink. The reception is not at a place with a bar so that adds to the cost and the responsibility.
And mainly, I don't want anyone getting really drunk at my wedding and taking away from our day.
Just a bit of info on the situation:
If we have any alcohol we have to pay more money to have a city person supervise the reception and then provide the alcohol and find some way to get it served, but I don't believe it can be sold, we we'd be paying for it all. And the city person doesn't card so we'd have to make sure no minors are drinking.
It's at a community center, btw.
2)How are you saving money?
3)what sort of herbal tea should I drink? I've been hurling.
What do you think about it? Can it be pulled off, or does it look "messy"?
How much does ferret care usually cost?
Are ferrets a dumb pet for an apartment (1000 sq ft)?
Some dude was supposed to come in early tomorrow morning to pick up a rental SUV, but he decided he wanted to pick it up tonight instead. I told him I'd get one of the garage/car wash dudes to clean one and bring it up, but then I forgot about it until the customer showed up and the car washers had already gone home (brilliant, right?). Dude got pretty pissy with me, decided he wanted to rent a small car until tomorrow, then changed his mind and decided to take a taxi because he didn't want to pay for the car AND the SUV. I gave him 50 bucks of my personal cash, he skedaddled, and will likely bitch to the other new girl tomorrow morning when he comes in to pick it up.
My managers are going to fire me, y/n?
I could have handled it better, y/n?
When's the last time you royally fucked up at work?
ETA Aww, thanks guys. I feel much less worried about it :>
For those who don't care:
What's your name? Is there a story behind it?
What did you do today?
alternatively, what was the highlight of your week?
My arm hurts but I have A LOT to do.
If I stay up should I run to Wendy's first? Sammiches and frosties are great for all nighters.
Thanks in Advance
I fell in a 2-3 foot deep hole (just one leg, all the way up to my crotch) while waiting at a bus stop.
