What artist and how many songs?
What do you recommend?
I would go back to the early 1800's. I LOVE the empire waist dresses.
He's a Cockapoo.
You see a woman in a public place whom you have never met, who is highly physically attractive. Then, she picks up a book and you realize that she is in the middle of a Star Wars novel. By gut reaction, is your regard for her attractiveness affected positively, negatively, or not at all?
how should I make them? I bought vanilla pudding and I have some nuts and graham crackers, but I feel like there's a pretty big range of stuff I could make the bottom layer with
ANY CANADIAN INPUT??
The cause of the controversy is the "Ashley Treatment" - a course of surgery and hormone supplements devised for her at her parents' request and with the blessing of doctors - that will for ever keep her small. It involves surgical operations, including a hysterectomy, and hormone prescriptions that will, in effect, freeze-frame her body at its current size.
What do you guys think about this?
Also, this is crazy. It's probably old news though, but I always get to things late.
I'm nineteen, I'm living at home, I flunked out of private college because of mental illness. I'm taking classes at a state school now. My family are emotionally abusive, my parents are alcoholics, and I have no friends within 500 miles of where I live. I want to go back to school eventually, but I'm financially dependent on my parents, and I can't play by their rules any longer. Both of my parents were in the military in the 70s/80s, and both of them are vehemently against my joining up, because they're afraid I'll end up in a war zone (which I'm okay with, or at least as okay with as you can be).
Basically, I'm broke and I'm too proud to keep living at home with my parents, and I like the idea of doing something more worthwhile than working as a cashier to pay my way through school, plus I feel I could use some discipline in my life to help me grow up and escape from my family's weird mindgames.
On the other hand, I'm not the most emotionally stable person in the world, my politics are very liberal... and I'm not straight.
Is there any way you can cheer me up?
This song was sent to me yesterday by a friend (the chick singing) who's working on getting a band started. This song is the rough draft, as they will eventually be adding a second guitar, a bass, and drums.
For the time being, though, they are having a hard time thinking up a name for the band.
So, I put it out to you, TQC; what would be a good name for a group that sounds like this?
Have you ever sold/exchanged something that was supposed to be "sentimental"? Would you?
How have you been verbally abbreviating 2010?
Do you just say "twenty ten"? "Two thousand ten"?
Doesn't it feel weird to say "January '10"?
I think I'm going to call it "oh-ten" like we say "oh-nine". LOL. I guess we'll get used to just saying "ten" when we're in 2010.
ETA: I'm asking because it came up after my boyfriend bought a couple 2010 sports games. NHL '09, and now NHL '10.. It just feels weird to say "NHL Ten". Lol.
Do you tend to do 1 large shopping trip a month (with side trips to pick up odds and ends) or do you just make several little trips to get you through the next few days/week?
Do you make a shopping list?
Do you plan out your meals for the week/month ahead of time or do you go day by day?
We usually go every 2 weeks. The husband isn't doing to well with the whole day by day meal decisions (he cooks dinner because he's a SAHD at the moment), so I'm thinking about making out a weekly menu to help him out.
What are some of your favorite recipes that involve using just a crock pot?
If I were to apply to work at Sephora, should I go in with awesome makeup or just conservative stuff?
Fuel is about £1.10 a litre here, but I have no idea of the fuel economy of my car. It's a 1.2 Renault clio and a full tank is £40.
Whilst I don't want to rip her off, I also don't want to rip myself off. How much should I charge her?
ETA: Fuel is expensive in the UK, it's very much out of my way, especially at midnight and I am very poor. The fact is she wants to give me something.
I haven't had to deal much with death in my family yet. I've only been to one funeral; I was four years old and it was for my great grandmother. I've never been to a wake. TQC, can you tell me what I can expect? Should I wear something fairly formal? Should I wear black? What are some things I can say to him & his family to offer my condolences? I only met his godfather once over the summer, but I don't really remember anything about him.
Also, do you think it would be appropriate to go to the funeral? I feel like I wouldn't belong there, but I really want to support my boyfriend and his family who will be going through an emotional turmoil after this.
Me, I'm going to paint my nails this weekend with a new nail polish.
We're flying in Sunday afternoon 10/25 and leaving the next Saturday morning, 10/31.
We're going to Tru for dessert at some point, we're going to see a Blue Man Group show, and we're going to a taping of Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me.
I'm also planning on going to the Museum of Science and Industry, and probably the Field Museum.
We're not planning on renting a car, so anything we do has to be close to a train line or a short cab ride from downtown. Free sights and events are great... and I'm a photographer, so suggestions on where I can wander around and take pictures would be very helpful.
mmm coffee coffee coffee
what's your favourite hot drink?
What are you doing right now?
If so, may I ask why?
If not what made you decide to have sex for the first time? At what age?
"In the 4D Gallery main room, I’ve constructed a 22 ft tunnel out of plywood that leads into the project room. There is no way in or out of the project room except for this tunnel. As you travel through the tunnel, it gets smaller and smaller, making it so that you have to crawl and put yourself in a submissive position in order to reach the tunnel’s destination. At the end of the tunnel the subject will find me waiting in the project room and I’ll try to the best of my ability to overpower and rape the person who crawls through."
Who should we send in? Hooker with a scorching case of herpes? MMA fighter with a knife? Fleshlight with razor blades installed? Rabid badger?
Someone graciously linked me to this wonderful little list of jewels and in looking through it, I got to wondering, why on earth has the tradition become to have a boring white diamond for an engagement? Why not chose a stone of your choice - as there are so many beautiful ones - and symbolize the event by which finger it is worn on? "Diamonds are forever" - is that all there is to the diamonds being the symbol for engagement?
Which show was it on?
What's your favorite kind of soap?
Do you find gimp to be a satisfactory equivalent to photoshop?
There's no target stores in my state. Am I missing out?
Do your co-workers have any bizarre habits?
How long did it take?
How did you train?
When I was in Catholic school, we had this deal on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays when we would get food from outside vendors like Chick-Fil-A, Taco Bell, or Subway, and Friday we always got pizza. Even on those days I would bring drinks or desserts from home. When I went to public school I sometimes took lunch and sometimes bought snack food from the vending machines, but my high school had these really good salads in a box that were like $1.75 so I would buy those.
Does your answer change depending on whether or not the purchase is for yourself?
What was your guiltiest purchase ever? How much was it?
Alternately, when was the last time you painted your toenails?
ETA: Who paid for it?
Has anyone ever heard of Emmy Noether?
She made quite a few advancements in the areas of mathematics / physics and I was a little disappointed that her accomplishments were not covered in my schooling.
Do you feel like the technical achievements of women in the sciences are underrepresented in schools?
What assumptions (pop culture included) really annoy you?
How long have you been going to him/her?
Why did you pick him/her?
What does it take to get you to go see a doctor (non-emergency stuff)?
I've been his patient for about a year now, but the only time I've seen him was when I went for my new patient checkup.
My dad recommended him.
I usually wait quite a while after I'm feeling sick to make sure it's not going to go away on its own before I go to the trouble of going to the doctor.
I friggin' HATE the QWERTY keyboard on my new phone. It seemed like a cool idea, until I realized that the damn buttons are so small that my big 'ole dude thumbs can't hit just one button; I always hit 3 or 4 at a time.
If you have this problem, what do you do about it? Use the delete button all the time? Type with your pinkies? Use a pencil to push buttons? What?
If you don't have this particular problem, what is a piece of technology that everyone seems completely infatuated with, but for which you just can't understand the appeal?
(For me, it's MP3 players.)
I always get the guy from Lie to Me confused with the guy from My Own Worst Enemy. Also Dane Cook and Ryan Reynolds.
He has MarioKart and Super Smash; he has beaten Zelda and really enjoyed Fallout 3. I know he also liked Final Fantasy: Tactics for DS.
I know nothing about video games.
Do you support a government monopsony on health care?
Should I say something to the management about this?
Is $2.50 more before taxes really worth making a big deal over?
2)Do you like perfume?
3)If you accidentally posted something from your personal journal here, would you delete it?
I think that's against the rules. ETA: my thinking was wrong.
ETA ? 4: Do you prefer beach or hot springs episodes?
So should I sign up for gmail just for the hell of it, in case I want to switch down the road sometime? Is switching over your contacts a pain in the ass??
How often do you post to communities? (not counting comments)
What communities do you post in the most often?
Today is the first time I've posted since January..before that I hadn't posted since March 2008. I have decided I should post more. So starting today I'm going to try to update at least once a day or every other day.
It varies. Sometimes I don't post at all..this is my second post in TQC today.
I post to thequestionclub and december2008 the most.
Have you ever been to a jazz, opera or otherwise black tie concert? If so, who performed and what did you wear?
When is the last time you went to the dentist? What did you go for?
How often do you light candles at your house?
2. Do you remember when you first learned that meat = dead animals? What was your reaction?
What are you most embarassed about?
(could be things you own, things you know, things you have done, etc)
HOW IS ANOTHER FREE EMAIL SERVICE ANY BETTER THAN ANOTHER? what is your opinion on them?
note: this is not the first time my textbook has said one thing while everything else says something noticeably different.
Should I just say screw it and go for it? Or should I go for something healthier and try to curb the craving?
I'm hoping I'll be able to work out again tomorrow.
y/n, support your thesis with photographic evidence
How are you feeling today?
what should i do? besides buy cigarettes, lottery tickets, or porn?
i don't smoke, that's a waste of money, and i get that from the internet.
I'm trying to send out unsolicited applications and it's taking me hooouuurs to finish a single one. I think I'm Doing It Wrong.
"The computer is connecting to the wireless modem, but it doesn't have internet."
In other news, do you want to make out?
ETA: Apparently I wasn't clear. I said this to the tech support guy and he didn't know what I meant. So I was asking if what I said was confusing.
ETA: How does that make you feel?
175 for me.
did you get the results you wanted with this workout? did you combine the shred with another work out routine or was it your only routine? what kind of changes did you make to your diet while you were on the shred? how much weight did you lose at the end?
I like to sing along to Sarah Harmer songs, especially from her album You Were Here. They have nice melodies :)
You can punch one of these people in the face. Who do you pick?
You get to sit next to one of these famous people for a 4 hour flight. There's no in-flight movie so you get to talk to them. Who do you wish to sit next to?
What are some recipes you recommend? I'm thinking of making pumpkin empanadas, but want to do more. What would you bring if you went?
What are some needed essentials for teh zombie party?
If you don't care, what are you doing for this Halloween?
How can you fail to tell your son that his brother has a brain tumor??? How can you fail to tell your BROTHER (who you are actually pretty close with, lives 2 hours away, sees a couple times a month...) that you have something like this going on, but you can tell a second cousin, who then posts about it on Facebook?
Have you ever learned anything horrifying/scary/secretive via Facebook/Twitter/Myspace?
So it rhymes with 'clicks' or 'peaks'
srs and non srs answers welcomed.
If yes, do you feel justified in this, or do you try to remind yourself that it's their food and their decisions?
I'm running on Windows XP at present, if that helps.
I'm being a headcrab zombie from the Half-Life series!
Males: If a girl told you she was nine months pregnant and she just found out shortly before she informed you, how would you react?
If you don't know or don't care, what is your favorite TV channel?
sneaky inter-TQC-spinoff advertisement:
Do you guys want to do a Halloween swap, organized by dandy, or get a mixtape from me? Come on down to tqc_swap!
Which do you think is a better idea? Why?
Whats your favourite flavour of faygo?
Edit: Was there a certain point that made you snap and say "this is it"? (If so, what happened?)
What's your favorite cheese?
Ladies, what changes/cravings/mood swings happen when you're PMSing?
Now I've been accepted to right a general knowledge test tomorrow and my mom and sister keep talking down to me as if I'm a dumbass and have never done this before; about how I have to wear certain clothes, straighten my hair (naturally curly) and how I have to wear make-up even thought I hate the stuff with a passion.
I believe I don't need make-up at all to do well on a test or at any point as long as I have a clean tidy appearance to get a job as I haven't needed it in the past for a job.
Are you pro or con make-up? and why?
have you done this? why?
what do you say in the email?
they work in word and other applications(like ctrl c for paste, etc)
I am copy/pasting my letters to get them 2 work here.
The other guinea pig's name is Clown Baby (I got her from someone who named her that) after an episode of Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia. They're both female. Video here (I apologize for the fact that I'm speaking like a child it just happens around animals):
What are your pets names?
Mine are: Buster, Chubby, Walter, Otis, LeRoy, Chester, Clown Baby and .....?....
What is your grossest habit?
What was your most last minute trip? Details?
My best friend found out she has it today! wtf.
Also, my boyfriend just bought me some neon pink Doc Martens. What should I wear them with?
so TQC, what should I do? Am I being stupid and immature and should I get over myself? Am I a terrible friend? Or am I justified in feeling "meh" right now?
Also, what activities should I do when I'm tired yet shouldn't sleep?
eta:I avoid caffiene due to anxiety.
Do your parents like to scare you?
What's your favorite TLC guilty pleasure?
Did you see the Mermaid Girl?
Am I sick and twisted for loving those shows about anatomical anomalies?
is there a song you are currently obsessed with?? that you feel like nobody else is?
( Collapse )
SO what should I get engraved on it? I'm thinking of 'Officer Owens' (my name) and under that 'Badass Motherfucker'. Suggestions?
tonight when I got home my mom told me that she had read my journal and then called my dad and told him everything she found, which included the use of some pretty serious drugs. My dad is the most important person to me and I feel like my relationship with him has been irreparably damaged.
Alternatively, what are your irrational fears?
Every time I open a bathroom door I'm afraid I'll find a dead body inside, and I'm sort of afraid of the entire state of Alaska. I've always wanted to go there but I also have always had the feeling that if anyone I love goes there something bad would happen to them.
I broke up with Mike 4 months ago or so, because I felt that our lives were going in different directions. He is ready for a more stable life (he's going to finish dental school soon and be a full time working dentist in one place all the time - I am just embarking on a series of travels and plan to be a travel writer til I decide to settle down) When we broke up we still loved each other. In fact, we still love each other. Was this a justified reason to break up with him?
Would you describe me as sects-y?
