Who are some TV/movie villains that have a lot of sex appeal to you?
I totally had a sexy dream about Sylar last night, haha. :D I also really like Tom Riddle from the second HP movie, Mr. Dark from Something Wicked This Way Comes, and Prince Septimus from Stardust. Oh, also Dr. Horrible!
What are your favorite holiday-y movies?
All the Charlie Brown movies, Home Alone(s), Miracle on 34th Street, Rudolph claymation...
1. Have you taken a sign language class? If so, could you share some experiences? What methods did the teacher use? How do deaf teachers teach, especially in the beginning when no one knows anything? (This is for a short story I'm writing - the characters taking the ASL class are two freshman high school girls).
2. Why do roommates always start vacuuming or watching TV at the worst time?
(Always when I'm about to take a nap or start my homework!)
I have a few visions from movies from when I was younger that I can't quite place. I was born in 1990 for reference.
First, a woman (or man) dressed as a giant bee or hornet. The person is dragging someone into a room.
Second, a woman and man are in bed and the guy has his shirt off. There are candles everywhere and she picks up the candle and drops wax on his chest. It was sexy.
I thought of another one. There is a girl all these other girls hate, and they drown her in a puddle near the woods. I think it was a lifetime movie. The girl is brunette. One of the girls ends up in jail and some woman slaps her across the face at the end.
For you, does parental involvement always mean that there's at least a small amount of parental control?
TQC, I must know, when you wear shoes that tie, do you kick them off, or untie them properly?
Anyone from around Houston--can you tell me of any haunted houses/equally creepy things going on Halloween night? I'm going to be there for a concert and figured I'd check out something afterward if I could find anything.
Everyone else--do you go to haunted houses and stuff? Have any actually been scary, or were they more just fun?
Will you fill in the blanks, TQC?
"________ is a poor man's __________."
"Life is too short to ___________."
"________ is a poor substitute for __________."
Alright, I need some fashion advice.
For the first time ever I need to start dressing sort of professionally. However, I'm going to be teaching in a jail so I also have to be pretty well covered. I don't want to look frumpy, though, because then I won't feel good and when I don't feel good my mood suffers. Does this make sense?
What the hell should I buy?! I feel like everything I've tried on has looked too "sexy" for jail. So, where's the line between still looking decent but not showing too much?
Have you ever seen a sex therapist? Can you tell me what it was like? Did it work? Did you go alone or did you partner go with you? How did they feel about you going?
1 Have you ever sent an e-card? If so, when was the last time - what was it for?
2 Have any good websites for e-cards? ...where I don't have to sign up for a membership and pay for it, as if I am going to make a practice out of sending online greeting cards to everyone all the time...sheesh, what a waste of money.
3 If you work, who is your boss (like, their position) and how are they as a boss?
4 Also, for those of you who have iGoogle, did you know about the fishy and turtle apps where they swim around and wait for you to feed them...sense your mouse and rush to it and wait for food and then gobble up the food when you click to feed them? (I'm a little out of it this morning and I'm not sure why I'm posting this but I love that little iGoogle feature and wondering if anyone else shares this simple e-joy.)
5 Simply e-Joys - what are some of yours?
What are some simple "e-joys" you have?
I have iGoogle and there is an application where you can have a little fish tank and another one with two turtles and they swim around. I clicked in the one-dimensional tank one day and saw that my mouse drops food off and they come swimming over to gobble up the food and they follow y our mouse pointer where ever it goes inside the tank. So adorable.
I also absolutely LOVE my LJ. I love how neat and clean and easy to use it is. I love the communities and the friends I've made. I love how no one seems to know about it in "RL".
Society says I should finish my homework and try to go into school. My body says it is definitely naptime, and some vapor rub wouldn't hurt, and I probably didn't take enough Tylenol, and I need about 15 more jackets.
Which one do I listen to?
How strict were your parents while you were in high school?
Any specific rules you disagreed with or just hated?
When were you allowed to start dating?
How do you know if you're Taliban???
You may be Taliban if:
1. You refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral objection to beer.
2. You own a $3,000 machine gun and $5,000 rocket launcher, but you can't afford shoes.
3. You have more wives than teeth.
4. You wipe your butt with your bare hand, but consider bacon "unclean."
5. You think vests come in two styles: bullet-proof and suicide.
6. You can't think of anyone you haven't declared Jihad against
7. You consider television dangerous, but routinely carry explosives in your clothing.
8. You were amazed to discover that cell phones have uses other than setting off roadside bombs.
9. You have nothing against women and think every man should own at least one.
10. You've always had a crush on your neighbor's goat.
Do you still make Christas lists?
Do you like doing it?
What's on your's?
No...I do it purely because my parents pester me nonstop about it 'til I do...since they don't know what I need/want otherwise. Last year I gave in and threw all kinds of random junk on there...anything I could possibly think of that might be cool. That apparently didn't help them much.
Right now: a few DVDs, new sights and a new stock for one of my rifles, a holster for one of the pistols, a new pocket knife, a flashlight, and saddlebags for my motorcycle.
Can someone please explain how to post a picture behind a cut? I tried earlier and can't seem to get it...
I have some baby carrots that are past their expiration date. I just took them out of the fridge and opened the bag for the first time. They don't smell weird and are still crisp when I break them, but some of them are a bit slimey. I don't have time to go to the store, and I'd like to eat them today and tomorrow.
Do you think eating the carrots will make me sick?
what are your favourite pizza toppings?
i like ham and pineapple.
In India it is common to cremate the dead, while in Pakistan it is more common to bury the dead. Suppose that a plane of Italians crashed on the border between India and Pakistan, and that it would not be possible to return any bodies to Italy for burial.
In this case, on which side of the India-Pakistan border should the plane crash survivors be buried?
eta: WOW, lol ok. sorry to offend D: you would've thought i was discriminating or something.
If you were me and supposed to be visiting a friend this weekend that you haven't seen in years and you were really excited but you probably have strep throat (I haven't gotten the results back but either way my throat kills), would you still go or would you postpone? It's only an hour and a half drive, it's not like I've spent money on a plane ticket or anything. He said if I'm sick he'll just take care of me but if I get him or his roommate sick, I'll feel so bad.
In your opinion, what primary characteristic separates humans from other animals?
Will you tell me the story of how you got one of your scars?
Bonus points if you don't post an obvious Dark Knight reference
If you were walking home and a car accident happened right when you were walking by, when you call 911 or would you just keep walking on home?
What fictional characters share similar personality qualities as yourself?
can anyone help me translate the following? (warning: it's probably really dirty.)
M’attizzi. Posse mangiare tu fiaga? Scommetto che sapore dolce.
I know enough to get the general gist of it, but the translation sites are only giving me the end half of it.
Can you choose who you love? Romantically? As friends?
My brother and I currently live in different states. I haven't seen him in 15 months. Is it strange that I'm not particularly concerned about ever seeing him in person again?
Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike him or anything, it's just that we have nothing in common whatsoever. In fact, we're complete opposites of each other. If we weren't siblings we'd have no reason to be friends or even cross paths with each other. But my parents think because we are related to each other that automatically means we should get along/be excited to be with each other.
How much do blood ties mean to you as far as how often you see your relatives, even if you have nothing in common with them?
Do you say "bless you" or some form of that when people around you sneeze?
Do you think it's rude when people do not? Why or why not?
The United States has a West Coast and an East Coast and the middle is called the Midwest. There's no Mideast, presumedly not to be confused with that part of the world. It's not called Central America because there already is one further down South outside the border.
Why is it called the Midwest? Whose bright idea was that??
My parents gave me 25 (literally 25!) split cornish hens. I already cooked some with a rosemary lemon marinate.
What should I do with the rest of them?
Did Basil and Sybil do anything useful to help run Fawlty Towers, or was Polly pretty much running the place single-handedly?

Which ones taste bad when they're burnt?

If you've been to Key West, FL, will you tell me about it? Did you like it, would you go again, where you stayed, etc.
I just bounced a check (for the first time) to a very important person today. Other than the obvious embarrassment, what will happen? My bank charged me the fee but does this go on your credit or anything?
Today is the one year anniversary of me adopting my dog.
Should I bake a cake in honor of this occasion?
I just started at a new job where I'm on my feet 99% of the time, and I've never had or had the need for "good" (in that sense) shoes. They need to be either solid white or solid black (as per the dress code at my job), and they need to not be granny orthopedic shoes (as per my ...not wanting to have granny shoes). Actually "cute" would be a definite bonus. I also have kind of a wide foot (they're just a little too wide to fit into Sketchers comfortably without having like 230498234 extra inches in the toes).
What brands of shoes should I look at? Recommendations? Links?
- Have hillbillies ever complained about how they are presented in most horror movies?
- Have Hispanic women ever complained about they are presented as evil and backstabbing constantly in some movies and even in action videogames?
- Has anyone in Japan ever complained about how their society is presented in some of their comics and animation and it might be giving the foreigners who are interested in their culture the wrong idea of what it might be really be like living there?
My puppy loves to eat food that isn't hers (cat food, the other dog's gfood which is hot dogs because my mom is dumb, etc). She likes her pup food fine, but if something else is down and the animal is away she goes for that.
So when I see it I tell her no, show her to her food bowl, and remove the other food dish. My mom is bitching because I pick up the other animal's food (after they are done) and says my dog "isn't speshul."
Any tips on this? I've had her not even a week and my mom won't stfu. Wtf she's learning!
DK/DC how is your relationship with your parents?
Is there anywhere online that I can watch past episodes of The Tyra Show (don't judge!) in good quality? I can't seem to find anything so far. :\
What all have you eaten today?
How many times do you usually eat in a day? I think I tend to "graze" all day.
I have a pie crust, shrimp, eggs, milk, onion, cheese, and potato. For dinner could I make a caramelized onion shrimp quiche thing? What should I make? What are you eating?
So, I had this job for six months last year, quit, and I was recently rehired. Before being officially rehired the district manager gave me a little interview essentially asking me if I planned on staying only short-term, and I told her no.
Would quitting after working there only three or four months be too soon?
If it helps, I make minimum wage, am in the lowest position, and would not attempt to work there again. I also just got a second job that pays more, is less demanding and has similar or better benefits.
My netflix queue is empty! (I really enjoy "indie" flicks but will accept suggestions from any genre) but I just dunno what to add! What are some *great* everyone has to see movies/recommend something?
If you don't like movies, do you like mushrooms?
Also is TQC having a hardtime loading for anyone else?
What percentage of your gross wages do you actually take home with you after taxes?
After federal taxes (we don't have state income tax), with no other deductions, I only get to keep 76% of what I make.
I haven't bought shoes in ages, but I seem to remember most stores (like, say, Famous Footwear) having "buy one get one half off" sales reasonably often. Does anyone know of any stores running a sale like that right now? Bonus points if it's a store that's got a location near me (Chicagoland).
I'm going to Walt Disney World in July.
Post your absolute favorite things that you can do there? I already have quite a list but I want to do everything.
I'm running my first 5k this weekend! (In 40 degree weather in the rain.. woohoo.)
I'd like to make an iPod playlist of like 20 songs - songs I know, crappy and no thinking required, that will keep me pumped up.
What are your suggestions for "past" top-40 or popular booty rap songs that are likely to keep me pumped up for 30 minutes of misery?
My coworker's suggestion, to get you started, was Lil' Jon "Get Low".
... What kind of (used) vehicle do you buy? Make/model? Car or truck?
My 97 GMC Sonoma was totaled recently. I am flabbergasted by the choices available to me. Help me tQC? I need suggestions..
If you were indicted for something that would get you 20 years to life in prison and bail was set at your life savings, say, $500,000...would you skip out on bail and go on the run and lose all your money or take your chance at trial?
And yes, you are guilty, though the case against you isn't necessarily air-tight.
I realize this is a dumb question but I'm watching Law & Order. lol
For some reason sometimes when I wash my hands at work I can very clearly see a lot more of the veins in my palms. It only lasts for 20 or 30 seconds.
TQC, why does this happen? And is anyone else freaked out by vein visibility?
I lost my keys and fob. I looked everywhere in my room and they are gone. I went to public safety (I'm in college) to get a new key and fob, and the woman there said the locksmith would come to change my lock sometime today. I went over there at around 10:30 am, and the locksmith still hasn't come. Do you think s/he'll come today? I'd really like to have a key.
ETA: a fob is a little magnetic thing that unlocks doors for residence halls.

Have you ever lost something expensive, and was given little option but to replace it? Did you later find the missing item and wanted to kick yourself?
I need new workout music. What should I download?
I'm trying to watch less TV these days. I want to focus more on my hobbies, listen to more music, and get more done around the house.
What music should I download to play while I'm relaxing in the evening, partaking in my hobbies? (if it matters, my hobbies are reading, crocheting, and I want to start drawing/sketching again.)
What should I download to play while cleaning?
Any podcast suggestions? Or anything else that I should listen to?
What are your hobbies?

Have you ever had an olfactory hallucination?
I was just wondering because lately I've been smelling things that aren't there. I've been smelling dog poop, a chlorine-like odor and nasty chemical smells. It happens a couple times a week. It's really weird! What's going on with that?
If a sexually abused woman kills her abuser, should she get charged the exact same way as anyone else? Or should the abuse be taken into consideration? Should she be charged at all? Why or why not?
ETA: Kills as in she hunts him down, not during the actual act.
It's raining so hard here, and will be for the next 3 days or so, so I'm thinking tonight's the perfect night for reading and tv watching.
What are you doing tonight, tqc?

What are some of your favorite soup recipes?
Say you live in a realsmall room. Would you still opt for a bigger bed (full or bigger) or get a twin so that you have more space in the room?
Currently in a Philosophy class, and we just finished taking a quiz on Philip Kitcher's description of the philosophy and science. I read the article, did the work, and felt good about the exam, but as I went to turn it to the prof, I saw this girl blatantly Googling the questions on her Blackberry, and getting all the answers.
I feel like I just got screwed. Should I feel wronged and bring this up to the prof, or should I just let it go?
How many results did Google retrieve?
(859 for me)

Do you or have you suffered trauma resulting from something you saw? I don't know if that's considered to be psychological trauma or not. Did you ever manage to get over it? If so, how?
If you're open enough, then I'd ask you to share what it was that traumatized you. But as someone who doesn't want to say herself, I don't request it of you.
What is the sweetest thing that a significant other has ever done for you?
It's rainy, and there are now puddles outside. You're wearing jeans and a pair of sneakers. Would you rather roll your pants up to mid calf, or let the bottom of your pants get soaked?
Roll 'em up like highwaters. I can't stand the backs of my jeans to be wet
Do you go through phases in music, or are you pretty eclectic all the time? (ie listening to specific genres, artists, or periods). If you phase, what are you into right now?
I definitely go through phases, but I bounce around pretty regularly. Right now, I'm listening to alternative & rock, it seems.

How the hell do you get in a car with an umbrella?! I cannot manage to collapse my umbrella without dumping water all over myself AND THAT DEFEATS THE EFFIN' PURPOSE. help please :(
One of my friends on Facebook just added like 20 different people by the name of Brittany. He is at this military school in VA but all the girls he added were Class of 2010ers from local high schools. He is in the "13th grade" at the military school playing basketball looking for scholarships. He was originally recruited to the Naval Academy but dropped out after three weeks.
