whats annoying you right now and are you trying to fix it? if so, how?
Can you guys recommend some more movies like it? Something that has it's funny moments, it's sad moments, and is an overall "touching", good movie?
Have you ever gone out to eat at a restaurant by yourself?
What TV shows do you watch religiously?
When was the last time you wrote an essay? How long was it?
My mom exploded one and my best friend exploded one. Both had them sitting on the stovetop and turned the wrong burner on. I was present in both situations. When my best friend did it, luckily no one was in the kitchen. When my mom did it, she turned away and right as she did it blew up. If she'd been facing it, she'd have been blinded. It sounds like a gunshot when it happens. In my mom's kitchen, there were melted slags of glass all over the floor and it scarred up the linoleum.
If not, will you tell me of a baking mishap?
In 8th grade Home Ec, I caught a dishtowel on fire. It was embarrassing.
If so, what did you think of it/them?
Alternatively, is anyone else suffering hard from seasonal allergies? I can't breathe right and I had a pounding headache before. Feel free to complain all you wish.
It's 1am where I am, in my office at work (approx 15 mins walk from home). I've declared it a night.
I can call a security guard and get them to escort me off campus (I live 5 minutes from the edge of campus) - means about a 30 min wait. I can just walk the whole way without an escort. Or I can curl up in my office and try to get some shut-eye here. It's generally a low-crime rate area, but there are usually drunks milling around.
What should I do?
Edit - I decided to walk alone, and I arrived at home without getting abducted even once. The last 5 minutes (the off campus bit) was by far the worst since the streets to my house are lined in trees that block out the already-dim streetlights. The last 50m or so to my house is pitch black. I was casually holding my umbrella like a club :P
I have my lip pierced and at my work old people will constantly ask if it hurts or how do i kiss my 'boyfriend' (im married, so that gets old.) or other annoying questions... but the other day a woman told me (as i'm checking her out at the register and being uber polite and offering her coupons and helping her with heavy bags...) that if i were to ever need to go to the ER...a doctor 'wouldn't touch me with a 10 foot pole' because of my piercing. When i asked why, she said, "That's just how it is."

I have been making my own yogurt!
That sounds really gross!
Have you ever made yogurt?
Do you think that turning yogurt with live cultures into frozen yogurt kills the cultures?
if you dgaf have you ever peed your pants from laughing so hard?
( Collapse )
The theme is "Disney Characters."
I put it to you, TQC. Who should I go as?
Keep in mind that I'm a guy, and that I'd prefer it to be something relatively obscure so that I won't be likely to run into myself at the party.
(My current idea is Blankey from "The Brave Little Toaster", since it'd be so easy...just a yellow blanket put on cape-style.)
Come on...give me some ideas.
What should I do for fun?
What's the last thing you ate?
Should I leave work and go get a sammich across the road?
Would you lend me 5 bucks?
failing that, what was the last good movie you saw?
I'm watching 8 Crazy Nights. What's the significance of the "Bum, biddy, biddy" dance? Is it referring to some other movie?
I read an article the other day that included a couple links to free online fax services and I can't find it anymore, so does anyone know of a reliable free fax service?
ETA: The doctor's office I'm applying to requests someone 'courteous' in their ad and I was wondering if this sounds good or is it too....unprofessional?
'I am an expert at multitasking and as for your request for a courteous receptionist, I was born and raised right here in the River Valley and am the perfect vision of Southern charm and good manners.'
Sandwich or cake?
Will you describe the strangest person you know?
2)Have you ever gotten sick from pure stress? Tell me about it.
Right now, I itch all over.
Note: Individual answers are hidden, so no need to fear retaliation for your views from
On a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 being I am so certain it didn't happen as I actually helped fake the damn thing, through to 10 being I am so certain it happened as I was there, so I would bet not only my life, but the life of all the people I care about.
How convinced are you that man walked on the moon in 1969?
We are looking for Inside Recruitment Consultants to sell our expanding product line of Web, Print and Job Fairs. We are looking for computer literate, sales professionals. Inside sales experience helpful but not necessary.
I have inside sales experience, which I highlighted in my cover letter. I got a reply back today from the manager that says the following:
I see form your resume you do have some sales experience. Do you have any outbound telephone sales experience? That is what this position involves.
I am kinda irked that nowhere in the job description does it mention "OUTBOUND" telephone sales experience. It says inside sales... which would be "INBOUND", which I have plenty of. I don't have any outbound... but I know I could do it if given a chance.
How should I reply back to this email in general terms? >/
I'm trying to tell someone that the photos I need must be 150 or higher, but I don't know how to check the resolution other than opening the file in Photoshop (which I don't know if they have access to)
Also, for married peeps, have you ever during your marriage, hit on someone who was not your spouse?
2. Since it went over well last time & I'm bored/sick, will you post 3 movie quotes and have people guess where they're from?
oh TQC ilu.
where's the last place you visited?
what was your favorite thing you did there?
What mode of transportation did you use to get there?
I'm sick & I'm going to the store later to buy some!
My favorite is Chicken & Rice!
Slate Blue Leather
Help me pick two?
If vampires have no reflection, how come they have such neat hair?
Do you at least have a list? or ideas?
care to share?
Which is the more space efficient?
Where do you go to satisy your survey needs?
Alternatively, what other memes or 'notes' (for fb) do you like to read/fill out?
I am bored & this is what I like to do to pass my time.
I don't like bzoink, really.
If you are not lame like me, what are you doing tonight?
Also, what is your favorite hair style/length/do for yourself?
Have you ever gone to class stoned?
Did you like it or hate it?
Don't care: What are you eating for dinner tonight? What are your other plans for the evening?
I'm sitting in Econ stoned as hell right now and it's boring as fuck, so yeah. :/
*inspired by irl events as two pairs of friends have coupled up and are making me 'ew'.*
[also, got any good anti-love songs? I'm feeling bitter and cynical]
DK/DC: What's the last thing you ate that you cooked yourself, and wasn't largely prepackaged?
Include an icon of your choice in your comment and ask people what they think of it.
Also, what is your blood type?
I just found out that I am O+
What're your favourite recent songs? Bonus points if they're singalongable, and not really repetitive lyrics.
And what are your favourite 'happy' songs, from any time?
How about showers - did they make you shower after gym class?
I just went there for the first time ever yesterday, and I got the Crispy Thai Trout wrap. NOMMMMM.
2. How many keys are on your key ring? What are they for?
There are 5. Apartment, mailbox, car, and 2 for my desk at work.
3. We all have inside jokes with our friends, but will you share about an inside joke you have w/your family?
Once when I was little, my mom was wearing these shoes that had all these squiggles of neon colors on them, so I started naming out all the colors. At some point I stepped on her foot or something, so this is what my dad heard: "Hot pink, hot green, hot orange, hot OW OW OW!" So we still talk about the completely hypothetical color of "hot ow ow ow".
if you don't give a shit about my font needs, what are you/did you having/have for dinner? is it what you wanted? if not, what did you want?
ETA: SORRY I ACCIDENTALLY A QUOTATION MARK.
I am from California and trying to get a job in Ohio. But when I call places around here to see about a job they always seem annoyed, but in California in order to get a job you have to pester the shit out of the company to ensure they look at your application.
Is it different out here?
What are good ways to get a job out in Ohio if I can't just bug them constantly?
Tuesday, September 15, 2009: interview for the job.
Wednesday, September 16, 2009: hired for the job.
Thursday, September 17, 2009: fired before the first day of the job.
TQC, do you have a job? Do you like it? What do you do? If you don't, how come? What do you want to do? What's stopping you?
And oh ya... why does my life suck so much? All answers welcome.
This is a really extreme case. It's EVERY class that this girl is dominating...What would you do about it? Should we talk to the teacher or just...pull the girl aside or what?
Have you ever had anything similar happen?
ETA: Inspired by this
Who loves you, pretty baby?
I screwed up my foot pretty bad and I got crutches, but I suck at using them...I have a 9am class tomorrow and campus is CRAZY in the morning, and I can just picture myself getting run over/knocked over/killed by the mob of kids rushing to their classes, so I'm a little scared. Right now sucking it up and walking on my foot sounds more appealing than going out on those things. =(
If you're not sure what I mean... a community where you could pay people to give you food from their area that isn't available where you live.
For example, I live in a really small town in North California and I really love Cinnabon but the nearest location is in Sacramento. I can't get to Sacramento just to get a Cinnabon, so I would love to find someone I could give money to, to buy me a bun and ship it to me. And then later on, maybe other food items.
Also, does this kind of thing violate LJ's TOS? I know there are trading communities out there, but I don't know how they work with payment and what not. Other than sometimes, people scam each other.
What was the last thing that disappointed you?
dk/dc: What's your dream vacation?
I am afraid of losing my appetite. A couple years ago I was really sad and no food seemed appealing so I ate almost nothing. Now when I skip a meal and don't feel hungry later I get nervous!
Will you name some foods that might make me hungry? I need to eat something but can't figure out anything I really want.
I have stretchy store-bought rats for pawns, and I think I'm going to make witches for the queens and devils for the kings. Not sure what the knights, rooks and bishops will be. I have wooden bases for any pieces that can't stand up on their own, wooden dowels that I can saw up and glue together, lots of fabric (including black and orange felt), and paint, and I could make bakeable clay.
I like to make homemade pieces that are somewhat similar to standard pieces (skinny bishops, cylindrical or rectangular rooks and animals or something vaguely animal-like for knights) to make it less confusing.
tl;dr: I've been cat-sitting my friends' 3 cats for the last 4 months when it was only supposed to be a couple of weeks at most. I feel taken advantage of and I don't know what to do about it. :(
Do you think it's appropriate for work?
For those that don't care, what's your favourite video game?
I am reading it now...I'm still on the fence. It's rather confusing atm :\
As far as chain Italian restaurants go: Olive Garden or Carrabbas?
Meekus, Brint, Rufus, Derek, or Hansel?
Meekus <3 for obv reasons
Some answers I'm finding say not if it's a closed loop cruise, others say yes you do.
okay what i mean is
i removed them they refuse to remove me
i want them gone
What are some creative ways in which I can let my roommate know she's no good at being quiet and she keeps waking me up at like 7am?
-My husband totally knew what it was!
What is your favorite Jack White project?
-The Dead Weather = unnffff. I can't get into The Raconteurs at all. :\
Are you making anything neat for Halloween? Crafts, costume, whatever?
-I'm trying to make this skulls-in-a-bell-jar thing I saw in the Martha Stewart Halloween magazine but I can't find a bell jar anywhere grrr
What wine goes best with Cap'n Crunch?
-We think possibly a riesling, specifically Relax. It's sweet, but not syrupy like some dessert wines tend to be.
Do you wear deodorant? How often? What kind?
Can't remember the last time I bothered with it. I like my natural smell. Not sure the people next to me on the train do, though.
