i was given gold brass knuckles for volunteering at a fundraiser
Will you teach me how to land a job, TQC?
What kind of cake should I make? What kind of frosting/decorations should I use? I like everything except for carrot cake.
Unrelated to birthdays:
Are you close to your siblings (if you have them)?
What song(s) did you used to like before it was overplayed on the radio?
What is your favorite dinner item?
Your favorite condiment?
My eyeballs get really hot... they feel really weird against my eyelids. O.o And I also get out of breath REALLY easy, from doing simple normal everyday non-strenuous things. like talking on the phone. wtf.
(This post brought to you by she who currently, apparently, has a 99.8 temp, when her "normal" is 96.8-97.1)
2. Have you changed much since then? How has your personality changed? How have your opinions changed?
To anyone who is married :How did you word your wedding invitations?
Also what do you think a nice wedding invitation font would be? I don't know anything about fonts and I don't want to test out every single one...
How did you deal with the aftermath/your feelings?
2. Why have there been so many references to Silence of the Lambs in my life recently?
3. Why do I have such a killer headache tonight?
4. Do you consider yourself an elitist?
5. I always want to spell "consider" as "concider". What word do you always mistype although you know the correct spelling?
Are you more likely to stay in a committed relationship or have random flings (or committed relationships that last briefly)?
I get bored easily, so the latter is normally what happens, whether I like it or not.
Have you ever had a cat get lost in your own home? Where were they hiding? How long were they missing for? Where the heck could Jareth have gone??
You think it would be okay to buy one of these even if you don't listen to their music?
He also chirrups instead of meowing. Have you had a cat who does that? He's chasing his tail around the living room right now and he's generally a big ball of energy. He acts perfectly healthy otherwise. He eats good and he poops fine and he's super cute. Maybe I am worrying over nothing?
I dropped 2 classes in back to back semesters, then took big course-loads the two semesters following that and did well both times without dropping anything. In one of those semesters, I re-took a class I dropped and did well that time.
Would dropping these classes look too bad?
(School just started- my school did away with Drop/Add, so I cant pick something else up. Drop date is around October)
I started classes yesterday morning. I have to be there at 9:30 am on Monday & Wednesdays, and then I have a class at 4:10 on Tuesdays.
Since I don't have class until late on Tuesdays, I'm tempted to stay up late on Monday nights and sleep in. BUT, I probably should get on a schedule where I wake up/go to bed at the same time every night, yes? But how do I do it? I have pretty bad insomnia. D:
Considering it's taken me a year to complete the first two, I am having my doubts. Get off the internet, amirite?
should i go to the doctor?
do you ever go commando?
Anyway, I always cook dinner, but I need to change my system. As is, I decide each day what to cook, and then have to go get the stuff to do it. I'd much rather have certain staples handy, so that I have enough stuff to make several different meals before going shopping again.
So, TQC, two questions:
1. What are some basic ingredients that should ALWAYS be kept on hand? Things that are very useful and can make lots of different dishes?
2. Will you please give me some of your favorite recipes? I want things that are relatively-healthy, involve vegetable (I love cooking with fresh veggies), and are kind of...ummm..."uncommon". I like new recipes...things like the korma recipe or jerk chicken recipe that I recently tried for the first time. Things that are from scratch are best.
How should I celebrate? Bearing in mind it's currently 8am here and I've been up since 8.30am yesterday. BUT I AIN'T SLEEPY
Do I offer to reimburse her for gas?
Have you ever had a sinus infection? How long did it take to clear up after being on antibiotics?
I feel like my face is going to explode, literally :(
2)Do you have a tougher time writing long things or cutting things down?
I'm a short writer.
Can you share any experience or sound advice with me about owning one?
If you can't/don't want to answer that question, what's the weather like where you are today?
If not, can you suggest somewhere better?
I need a place to get online for a couple hours or so between classes.
( Collapse )
If you don't know/don't care:
1) What is the most hilarious story you pull out to tell at parties or when meeting new people?
I like the one about my brother, who decided to sing "Dust in the Wind" in his elementary school talent show at age 5. He had Dad and a friend of the family on guitar and violin, respectively, and it was one of the most hilarious, awesome things I've ever watched.
2) Did you go to college? If so, where did you go and for how long?
Yep. I went to Georgia State for a year. Then I got engaged, bought a house, called off a wedding, and realized I should've ignored stupid boys and just finished school.
3) How is your day going so far? Anything interesting?
In my language and culture class we were talking about how different cultures have more words and phrases for things that are important to them than those that are not. For example, Inuits have more words and phrases to describe weather conditions whereas American's have a ridiculous amount of words to talk about money.
One girl in my class then said "So there aren't any words for money in Africa then? Hahaha"
2. What will you be doing in one hour?
Still sitting in the computer lab.
Of that number, how many do you actually regularly watch?
I don't know if I should just pay the ticket or not. They lasered me, so it's not like I can say "I wasn't going that fast!" if I head to court....
Anyway, what really happens if I have a speeding ticket on my traffic record? What does it impact? I also have a citation for "following too close," that I paid a few months ago... will this affect anything like my ease of getting insurance later? Will my current insurance go up?
I feel really dumb, but what really does having something on my traffic record mean?
I bought a cup of noodles and it doesn't have a recycling symbol on it, but it's cardboard and I don't know where to throw it away...hmmmm.
What are you looking forward to today?
Are any of you going to DragonCon?
Is anything physically bothering you atm?
Have you ever taken a pole-dancing class? How was it? Is there anything I should/shouldn't wear?
If you had to choose one, which would you go to? Your nephews Christianing or a not-that-close friend's wedding (the couple is more friends with your SO). The Christianing is 4 hours away and I would have to be home that night.
-30-35 miles away (though easy to get to). Dog friendly. Organic food cart visits on Saturdays, and they offer Sangria on Saturdays. Very pretty and in the mountains, but not much indoor seating if it rains. Guests can bring picnics if they prefer, to save money.
-10-15 miles away, very easy to get to. Not dog friendly. Great cafe with amazing food, and you can sit on gigantic plushy couches and enjoy your food. Less viable to bring a picnic.
Wines are similar quality and price at each place. Owners at both locations are very friendly and frequently offer personalized tours, etc.
What is the best way to do this?
Or if you don't care, what did you do last night?
How should I pass the time? I've already written up my grocery list, balanced my checkbook, and paid all the bills I need to.
My wife just called me from Wal-Mart and said that she picked up Animal House for $5. How friggin' awesome is that?
What would you LIKE to say? :)
Do you wear glasses?
If so, what brand are they?
Bonus: Do you have a picture of your glasses?
What is the last thing that surprised you in a good way?
What about a bad way?
..what is your favorite inanimate object?
For instance, in one dream, I was talking to someone, and then my phone went dead. My phone never works properly when I'm dreaming. I know it's supposed to mean something, but I don't know what.
My dormmate cooked chicken teriyaki for herself and now all the clothes in my closet smell like food!
How do I get rid of the smell? Does it go away on its own?
So far on my list I have yoghurt, muesli bars, corn thins, fruit, small tins of fish for protein, pop tarts and crystallised ginger.
So, TQC, what else could I snack on during my night shift?
Have you ever seen or been in a flash mob?
( Collapse )
I need a new printer, as mine, when I dug it out of the closet yesterday, is so old that the drivers won't work on Windows XP. So, do any of you have a preferred brand of printer? Factors are cost, reliability, price of ink, etc.
For those of you who don't know/don't care:
How did you find out about TQC originally?
Do you like to grill out? If yes, do you prefer gas or charcoal?
i've finally bought a pack of feria hair dye! it says to test it out for 48 hours in case of an allergic reaction yada yada yada... i've dyed my hair millions of times so i might skip it.. D:
for those who dye their hair, do you really wait for 24/48 hours to see if there's an allergic reaction even if you've dyed your hair before? do you know of anyone who's had one from hair dye?
I've already tasted most of the Jones flavors, Boylans, Stewarts, Moxie, Doc Browns, Inca Cola, Faygo and all of the Wal-Mart knock offs.
2. What's your favorite myth?
(Ten bucks on someone saying, "God" and/or "Jesus".)
3. Speaking of myths, was there anything or anyone Zeus would not sleep with?
Do you like it?
( Collapse )
How would you end this? Would you change anything up or is it good this way?
I'm so so nervous and just want it to be over. D:
Do you ever go swimming in the winter?
Do you ever ice skate in the summer?
Will you post a photograph that you took?
If you could have anything in the world right now, but it must be entirely necessary or beneficial, what would it be?
I made quiche with sauteed mushrooms and onions, spinach and turkey sausage. It so was fucking good.
if that doesnt pertain to you, what'd you have for lunch?
Help me, thc?
Also, what colour are your eyes?
What do you want to be when you grow up?
If you don't know yet, do you ever stress/freak out over not knowing?
Brought to you by the breakdown I had in my car a little while ago.
which makes today third tuesday we've had the exact same plans, and she just bailed again. the reason? her boyfriend got fired today.
what is your opinion on this?
eta: do you think that her boyfriend getting fired is a good reason to bail on plans for the third week in a row?
Where the hell is my roommate?
2)what is your favorite gummi candy?
3)Do you like sangria?
eta:what do you think of movies opening on 9/11?
Have you discovered a new (to you) treat lately? What is it? Share so that we can all indulge! Bonus points for pics so that we can recognize the packaging on shelves.

Where did you go?
A Japanese/Chinese restaurant. I had eel roll!
What do you want for your next birthday?
I want Ikea gift cards and lots of booze. I'll be 21 in November!!
(click on call to arms)
What is your opinion on this? Worth it, or is it too little too late?
I figure we'd need to cut it by 50% forty years ago to slow down the effects of climate change.
I don't think cutting emissions by any amount will save the humanity from the massive change this century will bring.
When will I bother to pay the $4 or whatever to renew my extra icons?
Are you as passionate about tea as I am?
what games do you enjoy the most?
do you Wii Fit?
(roughly translated: what's are some of the stupidest lyrics you've ever heard?)
I have a friend who says "you fail at life," and declares himself a "grammar nazi" in real life. It makes me so unnecessarily angry at him.
Do you visit any that might fit that? What are they? Links please.
I need to plan a unit of work for Society and Environment for primary school. What should my topic be on?
How do you feel about engagement photos? (I think they're so strange)
What about engagement parties?
this is how it turned out.. a little subtler than i expected/wanted, plus it'll fade even more over time.
should i dye it again or leave it TQC? and if i should dye it again, how long should i wait?
SO! In the meantime, what should I (try) to eat, other than Ramen Noodles? It hurts just making a swallowing motion.
Any other advice?
I think that would be awesome.
My older bro's ex called my mother (we still don't know how she got her number) asking her to lend her $200 so that she can pay her rent (her hours were cut, to my understanding).
Both my brother and I told her not to do it, since said ex still owes my brother roughly the same amount and has no intentions on paying him back. She only comes around when she wants money.
TCQ, would you lend her the money?
If you just don't give a damn:
Anyone going to Dragon*Con?! :D
Why do we think we can change people?
Have you ever changed someone for the better?
What do you do on the bus?
I've been reading, listening to my iPod, and thoroughly enjoying the people watching.
How long is your bus ride for the round-trip?
Mine is about 45 minutes to an hour each way, so each school day I spend two hours on the bus.
Has anything disappointing happened to you today?
I found out that my financial aid office screwed up when they posted my work study, so I was actually awarded it at another campus and the campus where I'm going doesn't have anymore work study money available. :( It was so sad because I found a job on campus I really really wanted; I feel so mislead now. They got my hopes up.
If you couldn't care less about the bus, what is your dream travel destination?
I am planning on doing a backpacking tour of South America when I finally graduate. I love traveling!
1. What's your favorite scent?
2. If a guy is on a break with his now-ex, but they remain friends with benefits, and he has a new girlfriend--would you assume he's not going to get serious (like long-term thing) with this new girl because of the friends with benefits with the ex?
.3. I have a dilemma. I am fascinated with infectious diseases, but medical school intimidates me because I'm bad at math and don't enjoy sciences. Is there any job I can still do without going to medical school that pays well and lets me study infectious diseases? :\
What should I add, TQC?
Anyone know anything about Canon's lens quality, or what point-and-shoot cameras have the best lenses (particularly ones with similar specs to those I posted above)?
i was able to stretch my ears to 12g, a lot sooner than i thought i'd be able to!
what type of shampoo and conditioner do you use?
have you ever caused injury to yourself while in the shower? will you go into further detail as to how?
What's your favorite thing to munch on when you go to the movies? I'm partial to Junior Mints, peanut M&Ms, and/or sour gummy worms.
2. What is the first thing to pop into your head when you hear the word meatball?
3. How often do/did you sit alone during lunch at school?
Any help would be amazing. :(
I put lots of onions and lots and lots of mushrooms.
How should I retaliate?
"kiss my face(?), kiss my back, is that all(?)."
I don't know if I 'm remembering it right but it was lovely. Any ideas what it may be?
*The majority of what he was singing were covers, bar some random crazy rapping.
** He wasn't performing, he was just sat in the garden with a few friends.
Do you know those math puzzles where you start with one number, then add another number, then do other mathematical operations until you're back to your original number?
What are those called?
Which actors do you want to play yourself and the other important people in your life? Do you choose these actors because they resemble that person physically or because their acting style suits their personality? Bonus points if you compare photos of that person and the actor.
Also - what song is the theme of your movie?
which of these songs give you at least a LITTLE pleasure?
which of these LITTLE songs do you like a little?
my boyfriend used to buy games pretty often from his friend (let's call him A) because A worked at best buy. A would buy the game for my bf at a discount, but would get a kickback. So if a regular priced game was $100, he'd get it for $70, and sell it to my bf for $80. i'm wondering if it would be rude if I contacted him to do the same thing because my boyfriend's birthday is soon?
i've only seen him once, and never really met. but i know he knows what i look like and who i am. in fact, we recognized each other at a local restaurant this past weekend-- neither of us said hi though. i would've if i remembered at the time who he was.
if it isn't rude, what form of communication should i contact him by? via aim? facebook? call? text?
My little brother was driving and a car rear ended my truck with NO DAMAGE. The other car has a fucked up hood, etc. This happened over a week ago...and TODAY a claim was filed with MY insurance company!!! I did NOT cause this accident! I have to get the police report that this lady filed tommrrow.
-She claims she had an off duty cop behind here when this when down. (Which better be on the police report)
-The break lights of the pickup up were not lit (what she says.)
-My bro got 2 tickets ..............1 - Not reporting an accident. 2- Leaving the place of an accident. (Again, we did not cause this) The police gave my brother these tickets AT MY HOUSE! They followed him to our house....No breath-a-lyzer, and I assume the cops saw the truck in the driveway...not fucked up.
Questions: Should I file a claim against her? No damage to my truck. Im just annoyed.
Is there a way to give a citizens summons this late claiming she was tailgating anyhow?
My lungs feel like there is cotton in them and have for the past two days. Should I go to the doctor tomorrow?
My stats went down because I stopped blogging daily and I'm trying to beef them back up. I used to have like 400+ views a day and now I only have about 60-150. It hurts! It's actually pretty important to me that people actually read and enjoy my blog since I'm trying to get into publishing.
I normally tweet links to it and put it on my facebook- which is where I get the most views from.
What questions should I include?
i_found_jesu and I are gonna take our menfolk out Friday night. Mine is my bf, hers is this awesome dude who is totally dumbstruck by how awesome she is. They aren't dating.... YET. (DUNDUNDUUUUUN!)
So, you guys have any good double date ideas?
What should you be doing right now?
What was the last thing you did that made you think "oh, i'm sort of weird for doing that"?
ETA: I got a recruitment letter for basically the same job I do now but farther away and i'm not sure whether to bother pursuing. I do like my easy 20-minute drive.
I'll have strawberry.
If not, what is?
Your boyfriend proposes to you. Let's say you do love him. Which of these proposals would you accept?
How many hours do you work a day?
How much do you earn per hour?
