Were you a really involved senior (or high school student in general) with lots of school spirit, did you just not care or were you somewhere in between? Did you go to prom and all the senior activities?
What was the one little mundane thing you miss(ed) most from living in your own place?
For me, it's having my own damn bathroom that doesn't look fresh out of a Walmart or something. :/ I had to go to four different bathrooms in my building just to find one that still had toilet paper in it. D:
Also, who is cheating in this song - the singer or their SO?
2) i only have pineapple rum and no mixers. should i drink anyways?
3) i took a drug test for target last monday at 11am. when should i expect the results?
new question: will target still hire me if i fail a drug test because of weed?
It's my car radio. Every station plays the same song. When I turn my car on, the same song plays from the same spot as when I turned it off the last time, just like a CD, only it's the FM radio. It is a loop of about 10 or 12 of the most eclectic, unrelated songs (Mozart, a Lynard Skynard cover, some Imogean Heap, and hip hop song I do not recognize). It has been this way for months. I cannot figure out what is wrong with it.
Two other interesting, weird things. I can tell it is being transmitted from somewhere, because there is varying static like a radio station, only, like I said, all the stations play the same song.
Also, you know when Windows has an error, it makes that beep sound? Well, on one of the songs, there's an error sound just like that. There error is in the same song in the same spot.
At first, I thought maybe I had tapped into some sort of weird satellite station, but that doesn't explain why it plays the same song from the same spot when I turn on the car.
ETA: It is definitely NOT the CD player. it happens even when there is a totally unrelated CD in the player and i have it on FM mode.
I think that there is no hell but there might be heaven. IMHO the God can't be that vindictive as to condemn his children no matter how horrible is their crime to the eternal tortures. But as long as He is omnipotent He can arrange special heaven for the chosen ones.
IMHO His worst punishment would be the eternal death.
The next punishment would be the curse to children.
Take Hitler or Lenin. They both had no children. The lesser evil Stalin had children but the God's mills are slow. The damned would be his childrens' children.
I thought I might look at North Face, but realized that I don't have $400 to spend on a coat.
Where did you get your warm winter coats? What brand are they?
If not, can you tell me about a wild animal that you'd love to have as a pet?
If you have pets, do you ever dream about them?
And since we're talking about pets, you can show me yours if that's what you'd like to do?
I need it to to live (food stuff)
I need it to learn (schoolbooks/pens/highlighters/flashdriv
I can't go around naked (clothes/shoes/accessories)
It's only one dollar and it's used! (most of my book collection lately)
I need to my cheap books (I do paperbackswap.com)
I need it to avoid babies (contraception)
Because movies are meant to be seen on huge screens and music is meant to be heard live (movies/concerts)
Because it's a birthday or it's for my friend's kid.
Why do you not buy stuff?
It's pink (albeit if it's closer to purple I'll buy it)
It has a logo all over it/has brand names all over (some exceptions apply)
It's a brand new book
It's not flattering on my body
I lack a job.
Do you remember your dreams?
Do you dream in color, black and white, or grayscale?
What's up TQC? How are you spending your morning (or afternoon, or whatever time of the day it is where you are)?
Aside from pricing, what is the difference?
If you don't know/care...how long is your hair?
When you apply for jobs, if you don't fit all of their requirements, do you still apply? Has anyone ever gotten a job that way? A lot of places are like "Oh, you need to speak fluent Spanish" (I took five years of Spanish and understand it, but I'm not the best at speaking it) or "5+ years experience as an administrative assistant" (I have two/three)
When you find yourself unemployed/out of school, how do you keep yourself organized, on a "normal" schedule, and motivated to keep searching for jobs?
Also, ACORN hasn't given me the rest of my paycheck (they skimped out on two days of pay), nor have they written me a letter saying I was laid off so I can claim benefits after I both spoke to someone in person and sent emails. How do I show them not to fuck with me?
What's the last big amount of money you spent on yourself?
Are you saving for anything?
What paranoid/insecure thoughts do you have?
Edit: What are you irrationally angry about?
But for Christmas the girls always make something for them. And since I'm good in the kitchen it's always me that does the cooking. Every year so far I've either done tacos or lasagna.
What else could I do that would be easy to put together for about 15-18 people, but wouldn't seem like an easy cop out? The meat in it has to be beef as I work for a beef company, though pork might work too. I'd get laughed at for bringing chicken into the office.
I am making a compost bin for my yard next weekend. I see many ways to do this after some googling.
So now I am wondering if anyone in the TQC has done this and if so how did you do it?
Next time, would you do anything differently?
Do you want to have kids? Why or why not?
I am undecided, I don't feel that ~motherly~ when I am around kids.. even when they are on their best behavior.
I just saw my first bout on Saturday (it was the championship, TXRD Lonestar Rollergirls, the Hellcats against the Cherry Bombs, Hellcats won!) and it was just about the most awesome, exciting thing I've ever seen! I think I'm hooked, and once the season starts again in January, my buds and I plan to make it a regular thing to go watch. I also think I'd like to start roller skating myself (not necessarily to become a roller derby girl myself, but if I'm good at it, who knows?). It looks like fun and a good way to work out, but I don't want to spend a lot of money on skates and pads and such only to find out I suck at it or don't actually enjoy it. Is it common for skate shops to rent out skates? I don't feel like a couple trips to a roller rink would give me an accurate feel of how much I'd actually like skating, I'd like to maybe rent a pair of skates for a month, try them out on my own, and see what it's like. Or maybe a roller rink would be the best way to go. I don't know. Any advice from someone with experience in that field would be welcome. :)
And if you have no idea about that, what would your rollergirl name be? Mine would be Sunny Burn. >:)
What is something you need to do but don't have the time to do it?
She's done this since she could talk and I don't think that she thinks of any people who look different than she does as being beneath her or unequal to her. I just think this is how she acknowledges the physical differences between how she looks and how they look.
do you think it would be too confusing for people if my url was www.namegoeshere.info ?
Will people get that that is a website that they should visit, or will the lack of .com / .net / .org confuse them too much? the .com/.net/.org for the domain I want are all taken; but I could get a .com.au or a .net.au - but that would involve registering myself for an ABN and that might complicate my takes.
In my opinion, the world needs more Tom Hanks movies.
I know more-or-less exactly what I want, but what brands should I look at? (No Mac suggestions please!)
I've looked around at laptop ratings, but they're almost always different. The only ones I've seen consistently at the top are Toshiba and Alienware. I've had a Dell most of my life without complaint though. I have an ASUS now and am not too impressed by it.
What brands do you recommend (or recommend to avoid!)?
I'm going to the doctor in an hour or so, and I'm going to treat myself to something unhealthy afterward; just can't decide what.
How often do you get fast food? Do you have a "usual" somewhere?
Is cruise control simply awesome, or what?
2. Do you find being friendly or being difficult/forceful works better?
3. Have you ever given different treatment to a client/customer for reasons such as being pretty/friendly etc?
4. What is your most effective method to achieve favourable treatment?
How do you decide? How do you keep from going crazy at the decision point?
2. Do you have as much trouble keeping Cole Porter and Noel Coward straight as I do?
EDITED TO ADD
3. How about the difference between tweed and twill?
Also, what is your favorite instant noodle?
this is mine
I'm so tired of the download time being four hours when all I want is one freaking song.
What celebrities/famous persons/infamous persons would you go straight for?
My answer: I'm straight and I would go gay for Christina Hendricks, Lucy Griffiths, or Nigella Lawson
I'm about to start selling books and things on the Amazon Marketplace. Should I make a whole new amazon account and seperate email address for all of this to keep it all seperate? Or should I just use my regular email address (which I try to keep as spam free as possible) and the amazon account I already have?
What do you think?
What's your favorite feel-good movie?
( Collapse )
EDIT: Okay you guys, I called her back and told her I was totally unavailable. She sounds kind of pissed, but I honestly give less than a fuck.
Difficulty: No Stephen King (as I've read a lot of them and hate surfing through the 9000 pages of character development).
Nothing says that I have to write them, it just gives guidelines for appropriate program notes and when and where they should be turned in.
And it isn't like I get graded on them. The 'class' is based on how well I perform. I don't think I even get a grade, it's just pass/fail.
I'll undoubtedly end up writing them myself. But I would like opinions on this.
Do you speak more then one language?
Are you bi/trilingual?
Was it easy to learn?
Do you wish you learnt/knew more languages?
Can anyone rec any good ways learn? I've got next to no money and time after work so lessons won't work, any other good ways?
What the hell? Why would he do this? Would you travel that far to meet someone and then not go through with it?
What would you write in the card?
Do you think pink and white daisies are too bright for the occasion?
PICTURES ARE MORE THAN WELCOME!
Is it free where you live? If not, how much would you have to pay for it?
you don't have to be super-specific, I know this isn't cooking, but just curious what my sweet TQCers think
Also, is it normal to be able to see your tonsils/feel them with your tongue? My left tonsil seems to be a lot bigger than my right 'cause I poke at it all the time.
For those of you who enjoy reading and would consider yourselves relatively busy: When do you find time to do it?
I adore reading and want to be able to do it more, as it helps keep my stress level down, but I can never seem to find the time. How do you all do it?
Or, will you tell me a joke?
How would you go about talking to them for the first time?
I would have started earlier but I had to go to work.
How do you deal with unwanted, ridiculous emotions?
2. For those of you who have a Facebook and play Farmville, I'm looking to add some neighbors. Wanna be my neighbor?
What are the most ridiculous recession-related tips you've read or heard?
If someone had gotten hurt by, say, falling down a flight of stairs, would police show up in that instance? Did something criminal happen out there?
Have you ever had a brigade of police, fire engines, and ambulances outside your residence? Did you ever find out what happened?
EDIT: I'll crosspost this at tqc_updates, but my mom just found out from a neighbor that someone got stabbed. And apparently, the person got super crazy gnarly stabbed. Now they're CSI-ing it up out in front of our house. They got the police tape and the little yellow numbers everywhere.
What animals have you eaten?
What would you like to eat?
( Collapse )
What would you name this puppy?( Collapse )
If so, what time period do you think you should've been born in?
Can you just listen to classical music or does it put you to sleep?
Or are you like me who can do both, but when just listening to it, dissect each instrument looking for errors or just to hear what instrument has what part?
Also, can you tell when they have up or down bows?
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde has been my favorite so far.
i also have invites if anyone would like one.
if you don't care about lockerz, will you tell me about the last item of junk food you consumed?
If so, how scary is it? Should I go in with expectations?
2. have you read any typical "school books" on your own time that your school didn't cover? which? did you enjoy them?
3. should i bother with other margaret atwood books if i hated oryx and crake and handmaid's tale?
What are your plans for Halloween?
Does it make you feel bad?
Does it make you wish you could live that life style?
Does it make you try to live that lifestyle?
If you're poor and you watch shows that portray poor people:
Does it make you feel not so bad?
Do you accept what life has dealt you and learn to love it?
Personally I like watching stuff like It's Always Sunny, Flight of the Conchords, and The Young Ones, because it makes me more proud that I only have 3 pairs of jeans, shared a room my whole life, have a bathroom with no doorknob, have a non-functioning kitchen, and make stuff for people as gifts instead of buying things.
I know a good portion of you are students. ANY OTHER possible reason for that error/trick I can try to get in*? :(
are you traumatized by anything?
Do you get anxious watching it?
I am so freaking out (anxious) watching this second episode. I don't understand the wanting to hurt people and people able to cut up people's bodies and all that. But somehow more than that I am amazed he can handle the stress. I mean, I think about the little shit I worry about in my life. I could not imagine the stress I would have if I was trying to keep the fact that I murder people and cut up their bodies secret. And I'm just like "OMG DUDE HOW ARE YOU NOT FLIPPING OUT RIGHT NOW!"
Am I the only person who gets this anxious on behalf of a fictional character?
There are too many for this Cisgender to keep up with.
How long is your hair?
Do you wish it was shorter, longer or are you happy with the length?
the area I grew up in/live in is known for weed, victorian architecture, and redwood trees.
