What's a cool, unusual word that not a lot of people know that you'd perhaps like to share with the class?
What fruits and veggies do you love?
What fruits and veggies do you hate?
What do you think of people with their belly buttons pierced?
Sorry about the Facebook question, BUT:
Can I block a certain FB friend's application-related posts from appearing on my news feed? Or failing that, block anything from him appearing on my news feed, without removing him as a friend?
i had a crazy night at work and just wanna go to bed. however, the wind keeps blowing my front door (that is shut and locked, it doesn't seal) and its making an annoying tapping noise every few minutes. Also, the old guy that lives above me is handicapped and has night aides that stay with him. problem is, the night aides spend the time cleaning so i can hear them walking around and shiz. i just wanna sleep.
whats holding you back from doing something you want to do right now?
Also, what do you think is worse to drive in, crazy rain, or yucky snow?
Do you happen to know what the cheapest used car to insure is, disregarding all other aspects that would come into play when determining insurance payment?
so what is sexier to find under a woman's skirt: black lace underwear, black thongs, or nothing at all?
where is the craziest place you have had sex? the most exciting place?
what do you think about when you can't sleep at 3am and you have a half naked man laying in bed next to you (sleeping, unfortunately)?
If you were to make a 1980's playlist, what is one song that would HAVE to be on it?
what games do you play on facebook?
eta: feel free to use this post to solicit neighbors!
what book(s) are you reading?
will you comment with books you like so we can recommend you books to read?
Does anyone know if Alltel will pro-rate a cancellation fee? Like if you have a 2 year contract, but you decide to cancel after a year? Will it be the $200 or just $100?
Does anyone know if Asurion (the insurance company for Alltel) will actually demand that you give them the phone back if you cancel your contract after making an insurance claim?
Right now I pay $190/month for 2 Blackberries with Alltel and it fucking sucks. I get a 20% discount on my bill if I switch to Verizon, so I'm seriously thinking about switching. The husband doesn't use any of the Blackberry features besides Blackberry Messenger (and that's only when I send him the messages), so yeah...big waste o' money.
The plan I'm looking at is $99/month for 2 lines, plus my discount. So in the long run, I'd be saving quite a bit of money if I do switch.
And if you don't care/don't know, what's for breakfast?
some wiccan kid left me this comment
"HEY DICK HEAD, read this: MENTALE MALEUS MALMO UNAKROO"
any clue what that's supposed to do? lol
I just got an adorable new tea pot and this makes me want to have a tea party. Before I moved to where I live now (just over a year ago) my friends and I use to have random get togethers like potlucks, picnics, and tea parties all the time and it was delightful. But that was at art school, so people as excited as I was were easy to come by. Most of my friends since I moved here are my co-workers, many of whom are creative/weird, but not to the extent my college friends were.
The tea party would mostly involve 6-10 people, me making a lunch, asking people to moderately dress nicely (campier/fancier the better!), and sitting outside in a garden eating little sandwiches, cakes, and drinking tea.
My question to you, TQC, is if you - an adult person - were invited to a tea party by another adult would you be hella weirded out and think it was stupid or would you think it would be fun and cute?
Also, should this be a girls and gays only event, or do you think there are some heterosexual males who'd be interested?
If trees had a consciousness, which would be the stupidest kind of tree?
And of course, if you were a tree, how would you die?
what should i theme my party this weekend? (not a Halloween party)
What is your name?
Do you like it?
Do you have a favorite name?
Jessica or Collin.
Any names you just can't stand?
Michael. That name is WAY too common.
Inspired by the woman who checked me in at the doctor's office yesterday. Ladies:
Do you choose a bra to wear based on whether you can see a seam through your top?
Do you choose panties to wear based on whether you can see a line through your pants?
Guys, how do you choose what underwear you put on?
Do you prefer to live alone or with someone? Why?
I reeallly don't want to go to class today. It is a boring, tedious English class and we have an in-class essay to write...should I feign illness for the day, or save my sick days for when I'm legitimately sick?
Of what are you an enthusiast?
Someone told me this morning that a friend of theirs had an alcoholic father who had a trick to fool a breathalizer should he ever be pulled over for drunk driving. Apparantly this man kept a jar of peanut butter under his front seat, and ate a big gob of it if he saw flashing lights in pursuit of him. This would supposedly "fool the breathalizer".
I am very skeptical.
Anyone know the truth of this matter? Any funny anecdotes?
It's fucking freezing in our room [supposedly the betta fish needs the place to be cold] and I'm already sick. My fellow TQCers, would it be wrong of me to turn up the heat [after moving the clothing items she has strewn over the A/C/heat thing]?
[In my defense, the last time I saw her was Sunday for about 30 minutes while she gathered stuff to leave.]
ETA [for clarification]: The "she" is my roommate.
What creams do you ladies use to even out your skin tone?
Do you like Britney Spears?
How long will my betta fish be able to go without food? I'm visiting my friend in a few weekends, and obviously won't be around to feed him. I can probably get someone to stop by my dorm and feed him for me, but if I can't, will he be okay for two days or so?
Also, my mom just asked me what I want for my birthday. Guys, what do I want for my birthday? (non-srs, duh) :D
A family member tells you that underwire bras caused her breast cancer, and tells you that you shouldn't wear them. What the fuck do you say?
Would you end a friendship over illegal drug use? Would it depend on the type of drug or the frequency of drug use? A friend of mine recently said that she would end any friendship no matter how close over even one use of an illegal drug and I was pretty surprised to hear that so I'm curious about how you all feel.
Ripped Taken from the headlines tomorrow's page on my calendar... have you ever had a colposcopy? Do you worry that your gyno will judge for the style choices you made for your lady garden?
2. Do you have product loyalty or are you a 'try everything!' kind of person? Be it mascara or motor oil, do you find what you like and stick with it for ages?
3. I'll ask my bank next time I'm in there, but when will I get back the $300 deposit I made on a secured credit card?
So, how long do you figure before the swine flu mutates and starts bringing the dead back from the grave to devour the living?
Why do you do what you do? Or,if that is too confusing, how do you stay motivated, or get motivated?
And, to those who play games (computer/video/board/whatever): why do you game?
Third, my father-in-law is staying at our house for the next couple of days to visit, anything y'all suggest we do for fun?
Can you please use this post to argue over something completely inane with others?
Why is this place mostly women?
Don't get me wrong, I love coming here to talk about my feelings, and cooking, and boobs, and clothing, and reality TV, but I have a question about carburetors and I could really use a room full of dudes (or maybe some butch lesbians) to bounce some ideas off.
Ok comically blatant sexism aside, why is this place mostly women? I haven't been able to think of any good reasons.
Uunnnnghhhhhh. I just ate an entire box of mac and cheese by myself (shut up don't judge me) and now I feel like I need to either pop or puke.
What's the last thing you ate too much of?
I just started a job where I'm on my feet all day and my back really hurt during and after my shift. I've worked this job before and this only happened once, and that was when I overexerted myself.
Are there exercises I can do to prevent this, or will I eventually adapt to it again?
Hey you guys -
How far is too far to drive to work one way? I'm looking to get a job at our local VA hospital - I get points for being a veteran and I have worked in a medical office, etc etc. But it's exactly 24 miles from my doorstep to their parking garage, and 20 of those miles are on an interstate. So I would be driving roughly 48 miles a day. I have a 2008 Chevy Cobalt that gets great gas mileage, but do you guys think driving 48 miles every day for work is too far? The job I'm currently going for pays anywhere from $38,500 to $44,000 a year to start, and I'm somewhat overqualified for it.
If you don't care, what's your most favorite type of sushi? How often do you eat sushi?
ETA: I have timed the drive and it's approximately 35 - 40 minutes one way depending on the traffic. Which at times is bumper-to-bumper maniacs going 110 miles an hour (the hospital is located very close to downtown Indianapolis). It scares the fuck out of me but my cousin drives downtown every day for work and she says you get used to it eventually :/
I am moving to New London, Connecticut in November from New Orleans. I've never been around snow. I am terrified

In honor of Banned Books Week, TQC, would you share any stories or experiences you have with books being banned/challenged/censored? Was a book removed from your school library when you were a kid? How about your public library?
Would Hollywood be so quick to run to Roman Polanski's defense if he had raped a 13-year-old boy?
What was the last actual CD/record you bought?
I got For Emma, Forever Ago by Bon Iver after listening to a few songs online for the past year and loving them so much.

If you don't like it, care to explain?
When referring to a country, is it more typical to call it female or male?
(Mother England vs. German Fatherland)
Is France Female or Male?
About how often do you do laundry?
Considering how many clothes and undies you have.. about how long could you go without doing laundry?
I do laundry probably about every 1 and a half to 2 months.
I have so many clothes and undies that I could most likely go at least 4 months without doing a stitch of laundry.
Do you sit, stand or do something else when inserting a tampon?
What is your favorite topic you've written a paper on?
What is your least favorite topic you've written a paper on?
Is cosmetology school pretty much the same no matter where you go? For instance, I don't know any black people who will go to a white hairdresser, because "They can't do our hair!" But that would mean that black people go to a special "black hair" school that white people don't go to, apparently.
In conclusion... do all hairdressers know how to do all hair types? What's the deal, TQC?
I love my questions. mm, chocolate milk
How long do financial aid applications generally take to process?
I'm taking my placement tests at a community college this weekend and will fill out my financial aid forms after that, and I intend to start in the Spring semester. That gives me roughly 3 months. That's plenty of time for everything (the application itself and subsequent promissory notes, etc) to go through, right? I didn't end up going last semester and really want to go back this semester, so I want to make absolutely sure everything goes through in time for the start of next semester :| I can't afford to pay it out of pocket and get reimbursed, so that's not an option if things don't go through in time.
If you dk/dc, what was your favorite class in high school? What about in college (if you went)? What made it your favorite?
What are your favorite songs that are considered "popular" right now? I don't listen to the radio and I have no idea what's even out there. I need to make new playlists (namely, a fall09 one) and I'm SICK of all the stuff I already have. My favorite newish stuff are Muse and Mika's new albums.
why does Supernatural suck so bad?
what's the episode of Arrested Development where Anne wants George Michael to go to a book or CD burning?
What weird things is your pet afraid of?
My dog is terrified of men with gray/white beards. My rabbit is afraid of hardwood floors.
I know most parents gave the "No boys allowed in your room!" or "No dating til your *insert age* rule but that was then.
Now, gay/lesbians are more open then back then. Experimentation is accepted as standard more often, I think.
So, what would be the new rule?
"No kids in your room AT ALL" just because of the chance of your kid being gay/lesbian?
I can say to my daughter that she can't date boys till she's 16, but then, if she's lesbian, her bf to me is a gf to her.
So, that makes me wonder what's the real reason for the "No boys allowed/No Dating rule"?
To keep kids from having babies or to keep them from being intimate?
Did your parents discipline you this way?
What kind of people in unfortunate situations do you feel bad for?
Is "chick" an offensive way to refer to a woman?
I know that at some point, it was considered this way. But within my experience I don't see it. Lots of women I know use it in a way roughly analogous with "dude".
What is your favorite flavor of juice?
So, I know this gets asked all the time, but where's a nice place to get cute bags? I found one on urban outfitters for 40 bucks, but I want to shop around and see what else is out there.
So I am a guy, and I go to junior college. Just a few days ago I was sitting with some friends in the campus cafe. There was 4 of us total and all but one of us all went to the same highschool. While we were eating and talking, a girl from our old highschool came over to our table and started talking with us. I and one of my friends had a lot of classes with her and we were quite familiar, the only person she did not know was the guy who did not go to our highschool. (I did not know him either, but he seemed like a cool guy)
This is where I need to know what is up. We invited her to sit and eat with us and she refused and ended up eating by herself. What's the deal? Does any girls on here have any possiblities of why she would sit with herself, over sitting with basically old friends from highschool?
I accidentally activated that AIM Lifestream nonsense. Is there a way to delete it?
I know that it is probably waaaay too early to be thinking about Christmas but: where the heck do you find reasonably priced fake christmas trees? My apartment building doesn't allow real ones, and the "cheap" trees I've seen have all been about 300 big ones.
Alright so I watched season 1 of Lost and I'm only on like episode 3 of season 2 and I'm already bored. I've heard season 2 isn't that great. Lost fans, should I watch season 2 or just skip over it and have somebody tell me what happens?
I need to rewrite a classic fairy tale that is traditionally told from a female's perspective, as told from the perspective of the main male character (e.g., Prince Charming from Cinderella). Which fairy tale should I choose?
I need to think of two movies... they each need to show a different side of "the city" (not any one particular city, just cities in general).
I need one that shows homeless people and would be especially awesome if the movie showed them next to a rich person, asking for money or something.
I also need a movie that shows the kind of dangerous "in the hood" side of the city (whatever that means to you)... (For this one, I was thinking either Crash when they do the carjacking, but I want something a little stronger).
This is for a paper (for my Urban Literature class). More recent movies are better and movies set in North America.
So any ideas??
What are some of your favorite appetizers? I need ideas!
Here's the deal: I'm 17, graduated high school at 15, have never been allowed to go on dates or hang out one-on-one with guy friends. For as long as I can remember, I've been scared of dating or being in a relationship for multiple reasons - letting my parents down, the fact that I'm a relatively tiny girl who would be incredibly easy to overpower physically, the general guilt and shame that would come along with doing anything sexual (even french-kissing is beyond the realm of possibility for me right now). I've spent the majority of my time as a teenager purposely trying to make myself look ugly to avoid attracting guys who might want to hurt me. I have a therapist. I'm doing my best to open up and try to fix whatever's wrong with my psyche that's keeping me from basically ever dating or having a sexual relationship. It's not really working.
My question to you: am I gonna die alone, or is there hope for me yet?

Ex., Women with gigantic boobs who cannot find pretty bras, pregnant women who can't find a seat on the train, Roman Polanski, etc.
This is a question for people who are sexually attracted to those of the same gender:
Suppose you've recently met someone. You're very attracted to this person, both mentally and physically, and you can see him or her as a prospective partner. However, you're not sure if this person is straight or gay (or bi). What do you do or say to find out without sounding like a fool?

Is being called "interesting" a compliment? Does it depend who says it?
How do you think you'll die?
What do I want for my birthday?
I'm trying to list my husband's RC helicopter for sale for $120 on Craigslist. It doesn't really fit in the Toys section, because that mainly contains barbie dolls and cheap-o stuffs. It doesn't really fit in Sporting Goods either, because it's more of a hobby thing.
