My boyfriend and I are having the BIGGEST DISPUTE over this!
Do you have any gift suggestions for a guy's 21st birthday? (aside from the possible photoshop?)
Tripod that you can put ANYWHERE or a beer making kit?
Has anyone seen it?
What is your favorite foreign horror movie?
What's the last book you finished reading? Which one are you starting now?
I finished The Frailty Myth by Colette Dowling and I HIGHLY recommend you all read it, especially if you're a woman. I'm starting Dance Dance Dance by Haruki Murakami now.
If you dgaf, then how you are you on this fine rainy evening, or whatever it is where you're at?
because apparently, the people who made the film adaptation of "The Time Traveler's Wife" think so and it's... fucking weird to me. wth.
ANYWAY, I'm drunk and I'm bored. Will you tell me what you're wearing?
Incredibly stupid under any circumstance, or an acceptable improvisation when there is literally no other way to get the holes in the tub and the holes MUST be there?
Assume the need to improvise is brought about only because the holes HAVE to be there and there is no possible way of being able to purchase something that will be able to make the holes.
Alternatively, what VERY VERY cheap things could be used to put said holes in said tub?
If I was a man, I wouldn’t have to spend my time trying to my prove myself of being as good at something, or as smart, or as capable as someone else because of my sex.
I just can't think of a better way to word this crap.
And if you don't care, what's something that's due really soon that you keep putting off doing?
Mine was Bobby McFerrin - Don't Worry Be Happy. I liked it when I was little, and listening to it now, it's still not too bad. :P
I'm thinking it is, but I'm often curious.
how long did it take you?
how do you feel about weight loss surgeries?
eta - i was given the option of getting a lapband and i said hell no. i'm against weight loss surgeries. i'm working with a personal trainer right now
Should I live off of bottled water and.. bread for a month and end up even more malnourished than I already am, tqc?
Edit: lol yes, I realize there are things like glorious McDonalds in India, too, but from what I've heard, if you've got a weak stomach, a McDonalds in India is pretty much more likely to get you sick than a regular restaurant.
My school just got some award yet I don't know a single person who likes it.
How come most of the recipes for baking I find give measurements to make 2 of everything? Two loaves, two pie crusts, two pie fillings, two dozen cookies. It usually doesn't make the measurements any rounder or easier, either. Is there some practical reason why it's better/easier to make double?
I'm going to bake with them - that's always a given. Any other ideas? We'll have like 8 hours to kill.
Share the scar story.
but anyways heres my story.
i go into my new job (2nd day) and they tell me to go home because there is no work. supposively theres only enough work for 2 people. they told the other guy i work with to go home too. i just hate how the world works people are such assholes in the world. everyone cares only for themselves.
not to mention i've been trying (well, not really trying), but i have for the last couple of years have been hoping to get pregnant. when i was younger, i had an abortion and since i had the abortion i've never concieved. i've had scares, but i've never been pregnant, which is odd to me. i just found out my best friends pregnant and i'm honestly a little bit jelous, i cried because of my decision when i was 14 years old. what if i'm never able to have a baby? me and my ex tried for a month and i was didn't even get pregnant. wtf. what is wrong with me.
not to mention i'm bi-polar and my mood swings have been so bad here lately.
oh yeah and i've been reading the bible a lot too for sum odd reason. i feel guilty when bad things happen i feel guilty when i'm doing bad things. i think i might be having a mental breakdown or something??????????
When was the last time you felt proud of yourself?
I have a botany test and a psychology test, both tomorrow. History test Tuesday, and a British Literature test Wednesday.
Since I'm a psych major, that test should be relatively easy without much studying. The history is a lot of info, but it's easy stuff that's not hard to memorize.
The botany test and brit lit tests are going to kick my ass. I'm a procrastinator too, so I've done NO studying for either. I'm concentrating on botany today--so how exactly do I remember tons of scientific things? There is a shitload of info that is most definitely not going to be easy to memorize. How do I take it all in and actually remember it for the test tomorrow? D:
What are your favorite kitchen gadgets/utensils?
Have you ever posted on an anon meme/post of any sort where other people could tell you what they honestly thought about you? What did they say? Was it positive or negative?
If not, how do you THINK people would react? Would they tell you that you suck or that you are AWESOME?
Why is coconut rum so much tastier than regular rum? I can't stand that shit normally, but I had coconut rum last night and it was so great.
What are you doing with your weekend, TQC?
Does anyone know how to make lols? Preferably cinnamon lols?
What happened to Ruby Red Squirt?
What were your favorite books when you were in elementary school?
Second time or third time?
Thanks for any help you can provide!
-->I can't wait for Whip It and Where The Wild Things Are.
Will you tell me about the last thing that made you go >:( ?
-->My roommate's kitty, who is not the most affectionate creature in the world (read: she's pretty mean to me most of the time) just came up to me, plopped down on my lap and started purring. So of course I was all "aaawwwww," and started petting her... at which point she proceeded to try to eat/claw my hands to death. >:( Jerk.
How badly do you procrastinate when it comes to homework/papers/whatever?
I've been sitting here in the computer lab for almost an hour and a half and I've only gotten my heading done.
Serious and non-serious answers welcome. Cryptic answers will be rounded up and shot at dawn
Why is there so much modern belief in a law document being a "living document" subject to being interpreted subjectively and so often in conflict with original intent?
If the openness of interpretation being conducive to conflict was so obvious to Alexander Hamilton by his calling the necessity mere, then why is it not so obvious to modern people?
Are those passionately opposed to uniform interpretation hiding contempt for authority or desire for power?
who is your parents' favourite child? if you're an only child, do your grandparents play favourites with their grandchildren?

So will you give me ideas for decorating, music, stuff to do etc. to make our high school halloween dance a sucess?
What awesome shows/cartoons were your favorite growing up?
YES, BITCHES, IT'S PUMPKIN TIME. FOR ME, IF FOR NO ONE ELSE.
I've started my MSc and a lot of the material is available on-line. I like annotating and making notes on pages as I go along when I use printed material. Alas, my resources cannot resort to printing out 300 pages of a PDF file.
Long shot but: Have any of you had to do student teaching? Were to able to work too?
How about using a wide ribbon for a belt? I'm not finding any belts that I like so I thought I'd just make one..
EDIT: do you now smoke?
Think along the lines of Just Friends as opposed to The Notebook.
I'm going to blockbuster and I'm in the mood for something I can sit down with a bucket of Ben and Jerry's and wish I had that kind of love. It's that kind of day.
If you hate romantic comedies, what is your favorite kind of pie? I like pecan pie.
The shirt has two small blue spots on the front that I can't get out. I've tried using Shout stain remover and soaking the stain with detergent, but so far no luck.
How can I get the blue stains out of the shirt?

Whats an image or symbol that depicts these words?
- holding things together
- a kind and loving person.
I hope I've explained that okay!
ETA - Also symbol/image for a uniqe person
And, if you were making a memorial book for a relative, what would you title it? I'm really stuck. I don't want anything as predictable as 'The LIfe & Times of...' or 'In loving memory'
Should I politely decline the offer from the guy who looks like Brett Michaels?
Why are guys who look like Brett Michaels messaging me? :(
Will you give me stories about really bad dates?
How are their camis? I mean, considering they're only $2.50 according to the website, they can't possibly be particularly 'good' quality, but do they work for their purpose?
What's your favorite love story?
Where I live, 'bitch' and 'hell'... and even 'slut' are pretty acceptable. I'd say all three (in the right context) in front of my Grandma. I wouldn't use 'shit', but then it wouldn't give her a heart-attack... whereas fuck and cunt would offend/upset her pretty badly.
I think 'hell' might be more offensive elsewhere, particularly in the states though? ... also, the term "God" - as in "Oh My God" often gets changed to "Oh My Gosh" elsewhere? For me, I change it if I'm around a very religious person, to be polite... but "Oh My Gosh" seems very American to me an unnatural to say. Saying Jesus Christ! when something happens isn't offensive in my peer group either, but again I'd change that if I was around people I knew were very religious.
Twat, prick, wankstain, or 'wanker'... they're things I could say in front of Grandma but wouldn't.
Just about all swear/offensive words could be used (in the right context) in front of my friends without offending any of them... but then I'm told Australians swear in a different way - ie. we use them to fill sentences rather than as abuse... and often terms like "you fat fucking bastard!" can be used in a joking way as terms of endearment, somehow, lol.
So yeah... where abouts are you, what's offensive, and what's in common use?
...where do you think he would have moved to?
Also, where can I find a good grey, knee length, pleated skirt? I've been looking all over and can't find anything even a little similar to what I want.
2. Will Jim Zorn still have a job next year?
3. Are the Bengals for real? (I think they are, to be honest)
4. For those of you who watch any form of pre-game show, which do you prefer? CBS? FOX? NBC? NFL Network? Some other channeL?
5. Who's your team? (Mine's actually the Eagles, despite my icon. LT is just awesome.)
If so, is it chemical or situational?
How do you deal with feelings of gloom?
What medicine or natural remedies would you recommend to settle an upset stomach?
Do you get motion sick/car sick?
Your favorite pills, teas, etc. for sleeping.
Preferably your favorite brand of sleeping pills.
My current front runner is Mandarin. I'm thinking not french because everyone and their dog knows french and I'll never catch up enough to be useful.
What is the most useful language to learn for someone who wants to work in a humanitarian field?
Now, make me feel inferior; What languages can you speak or write?
What is your favorite movie?
what would you think of someone who you just met if they had a habit of speaking like this?
whats frustrating you?
how do I heat this up without cooking it further? I've never had to deal with this situation in my entire life.
EDIT: Thank you to those who answered my simple question without sarcasm.
I need a new camera on account of I broke mine. I had a Nikon coolpix s60. I liked it but.. it broke quite easily plus it took forever to take a photo. I want one that will take the picture right away. I also want it to take the average memory card. I know Sony has a different one, but they dont fit into my laptop & BLEH.
I'm not a photographer, it's mostly for family/friend stuff.
Another issue is that I'd like to order it with airmiles. So, this is what they offer
My old one is on there, I could just get that one again because the memory card & batteries would all fit.. but I kind of want something better.
SO TQC, which camera should i order with my airmiles? The Nikon or something else?
I have enough airmiles for any of 'em. Thanksss
mine's The Clash.
also, does anyoe else find the Packers uniform this year kinda gay?
We recently got a new manager and she is amazing. We were talking and she said she thought I was really strong and have an old soul. She was also down to go see Conan with me and another coworker! She's also great at managing with I greatly appreciate.
What would you recommend I could get for him? (Money isn't really an issue.)
If it helps, he's into all geeky type things really, loves music and video games, wants to play the piano. But the gift doesn't have to relate to any of these things.
Any ideas would be really helpful.
Thank you in advanced. =]
I may have ended up there this weekend and am dreading the bill coming. I didn't think to ask anything like that because I was still drunk when I left. I'm pretty sure there wasn't any other treatment, though.
Or if not Puerto Rico, have you been to other Caribbean islands that you'd recommend? We're looking for a decently-priced weeklong vacation destination that will be warm enough to allow for hiking, beaches, and other outdoorsy stuff (ruins, rainforests, gardens, kayaking, whatever), but still have some bigger cities (museums, galleries, vegetarian options, English-speakers in case we need it, etc.). We're planning for the first week of November.
Anyone else, where was your last vacation? And where is your next vacation?
Do you make use of to-do lists?
Yes, my desk is covered with post-its with lists on them.
How much liquid have you consumed today?
Close to a gallon, if you count the soup I had for lunch and dinner. I've been drinking a lot of water lately.
A few weeks ago all four cats (two adults and two kittens) disappeared. Two days ago she showed up, and her back legs were paralyzed.. but she didn't have any obvious INJURIES. She was also pregnant. I thought maybe she had been clipped by a car and had a sprain to her hip or something and drover around with her in my lap.. I even put my hand up to her mouth to offer her a piece of food!
I had to drop her off at my place because I couldn't find any open vets and she died. Now I'm worried that the possum might have bitten the kitten who might have bitten the cats and now she might have died from rabies and I put my hand in her mouth!!! She wasn't drooling or crazy but she was being very calm and her back legs were partially paralyzed and her mouth was slightly open.
I'm freaking out that I might get rabies and its Sunday and tomorrow will already be day 3 if I can even start the shots then PLEASE HELP!!!!
srsly only plz
Don't explain it.
Elizabeth feels so sorry for the skunk. I'm sorry skunk. I hope you have a nice life in skunk heaven.
Interview in the morning.
Any first world problems?
I got home too late to photograph jewelry.

Eta: if you're feeling antagonistic ;)
