I was just thinking about it.
Tomorrow is rehearsal for the Marine Corps Birthday Ball Saturday. We had a small one today, but we're going all out tomorrow. I have some parts to read, plus the Birthday Message. I also have a mock trial in Government, and I'm supposed to be questioned tomorrow.
Should I stay home, or go? I want to stay home, but that's a lot to miss. What would you do?
Unrelated- Do you have any odd colored socks?
How do you comfort yourself?
What makes you happy? Can you easily maintain a happy attitude?
What did you do today?
How did you get through it?
I'm supermegastressing about something happening in JANUARY :(
do you think this song is pretty?
( Collapse )
Research tells me either pregnancy or hepatitis can cause this, but I'm pretty sure I ain't got either.
So, any ideas?
Do you think that's a fair assessment? Are you mature? Do you act mature all the time, or like me, act mature when it counts and let yourself be immature when it's ok to do so?
Just something dumb I was thinking about while getting dressed this morning. :)
Should I leave now? Or should I wait a couple hours?
What are you looking forward to?
If you are, what are you going to be?
If you have kids, what are they dressing up as?
Also, ( Collapse )
Is Michael Jackson going to be this generation's Elvis? (people building little shrines in their houses...impersonators...etc)
Are you into video games?
Which ones/what systems?
Do you play any instruments?
When's your birthday?
1.) What was the last thing that made you Truly sad?
2.) What's your favorite beer?
Should I pay $6 to have a cosmetology student flat iron my hair for me?
I've attempted to do it myself several times, but it never turns out right. My friend taught me how to do it, but it doesn't end up like I want it to. I'm thinking its because of my cheapo $10 flat iron opposed the really nice (and expensive) one she used on my hair.
If you have a flat iron, what brand is it? Should I shell out $47 for a CHI that is on sale? I heard those were really good.
Pics under the cut!

I'm open to suggestions! Thanks!
I don't know if it's the computer I am on, or if something is up with the LJ site, but it's taking incredibly long to load, and sometimes ends in an error, forcing me to refresh and hope it doesn't give me another error or take another five minutes.
Is anyone else having problems?
....or more importantly.......
What is LJ smoking????
ETA: It seems either LJ has ran out of grass, Frank stopped chewing on the wires, or Frank was able to successfully negotiate a raise. We are safe....for now.
Any thoughts on what you are going to carve?
Tetris or PacMan?
How do you feel about whistling?
Is there anything irrational you would like to say?
Which is better: movies or internet?
Or just a story about why you're fuming also.
If not, what game do you want to come out already?
Over a 24 hour span, would you rather eat....?
Would you rather....?
Would you rather...?
Would you rather parachute naked into...?
You'd rather be locked in a completely dark coffin for 10 minutes with...?
You'd rather hit this with your car at 2am on a lonely road where no one else is around?
(I just booked a 16 hour flight, which I think must be the second longest nonstop in the world, which beats my previous record by around four hours, and which seems EXTREEEEEME to me in its length.)
How should I knock myself out? I'm planning on previous night's sleep deprivation, Benadryl, and wine at this point, but will try anything.
Ever used melatonin as a sleep aid? Is it real or voodoo?
Stuff like this.
update to my last entry: my prof says he trusts our textbook more than the encyclopedia britannica and the five other source i found and acted like he didn't believe a word i said.
What is the correct way to refer to people from Afghanistan?
Something else that you can think of?
(not all serious options, obviously)
Class 1 is by a very excellent, well-loved professor at 8 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It will be offered again before I graduate, but is an 8 am and if the 8 am I currently have is any indication, I will probably be pretty unlikely to ever want to get out of bed to go (though the 8 am I have now has no attendance policy and that one will). It's a course specifically for my major. (a Rhetoric course).
Class 2 is by a fairly disliked professor, but I think I'd really enjoy the topic. It's during the afternoon so it's much more tolerable time-wise. It's a "Special Topics" class, so it's only going to be offered once. It's an elective, and I need a ton of electives, though those are easier to get and more likely to show up than my core. (Sociology of Adolescents).
What would you do, TQC? Good professor at 8 am or mediocre professor and a subject you're into in the afternoon?
Since I'm not having any luck reaching her should I:
a) bring in my resignation and a letter explaining why I quit telling her when I'm available to be reached to the office
b) should I just leave a message on her answering machine quitting and then leave my letter of resignation at work when I do my last few shifts?
I really want to buy an elliptical machine for myself for Christmas. Any recommendations?
What about when they start making a blanket statement generalizing everyone because of they're lifestyle choice or lack there of in an ignorant way about the?
Edit: This person has choosen to become vegitarian, than totally vegan. They say they have educated themselves on this lifestyle and believe that all slaughter houses and animal farms are the same and treat animals horribly.
This person has said that they believe that those who eat meat in the entire world are making the wrong choice and because of technology and other aspects of todays society that we no longer have to eat meat.
This person have also indicated that because people choose to eat meat they would consider not helping people if they were in serious need and that people as a whole deserve to have bad things happen to them because of choices;They would also consider animals lives more valuable than humans.
I feel accomplished somehow.
When you make popcorn, do you eat it out of the bag or do you dump it into a bowl?
The dead are rising from their graves and walking the land! They're not attacking anyone, just shambling about. People are still really antsy about it and many are killing these zombies again. For some reason, you're in Hollywood and all these celebrity zombies are milling about, moving slowly in your direction. You have a shotgun. Who do you blow away? P.S., I realize that some of these celebs aren't buried in LA or were cremated. I don't care. In this magical poll, they're transported to LA in corporal form
Is there some company that will pick it up & either take it to his house or put it in a storage spot for him to pick up?
ETA: I'm looking for moving services on craigslist. Thnx
Is there anything wrong with this?
Have a great weekend!
Will you tell me something rude that someone did to you lately? Or just something you witnessed?
( Collapse )
i just got an ergonomic keyboard at work, when will i get used to it?
I heard this Kings of Leon song today on the radio and I just couldn't see a bunch of dudes all jamming out to it. Same with shit like the Goo Goo Dolls.
What are your thoughts?
It's not like in a brick-and-mortar store where you can go in and reason with people face-to-face, and speak to supervisors, and supervisors' supervisors, and erm maybe cause a scene if they're REAL assholes...online places can fully ignore you if they want.
This place called Barry Farm sent me rice and herbs that were obviously completely rancid, and they wrote back to my nicely worded e-mail being all "you're not familiar with the taste of our fine products blah blah you are trying to trick us and return stuff just because you don't like it" and I'm wondering if I can open a credit card claim/complaint with Visa or something, since I actually am fully within the bounds of their own return policies. Ugh IDEK, I hate being that customer who "threatens" but I ended up having to do that because they were SO unhelpful...I told them I would have to speak to Visa and write a really bad review about them for cooking and bakebakebake, which have like 25000 members, but I felt so lame saying that!
EDIT: also, random Q, do Brits say "mer mer mer" instead of "blah blah blah," or is that just a funny thing Steven Hall came up with? (in the book the Raw Shark Texts...I thought it the most hilarious sound)
Do I just show up without a gift and buy one while I'm there?
Ugh I hate stuff like this. What is something you hate?
You had to move around the grid collecting stones and putting them back where they came from to activate teleporters, open doors, etc. You would go to different sub-areas and dig for stones using these creatures that looked kind of like stunted tadpoles with digger proboscises. They came in different colours; one (I think green?) could dig normal dirt, another colour (maybe brown?) could dig through hard ground, and another one (purple?) could lay eggs to breed more. You can buy them or, later on, genetically engineer your own with a puzzle challenge.
You had different attacks, mostly ball-shaped magic projectiles; I think fire, electricity, etc.
Ring any bells?
(I've posted on whatwasthatone as well).
who are you with today?
I'm not friends with this girl. We went to high school together. Every few months, she sends me friend requests and I always deny her, but she doesn't give up. :(
Why don't people flush public toilets after they are done doing their business?
I got back from the bathroom a few minutes ago and 2 out of 4 stalls hadn't been flushed.
What are your plans for the weekend?
I'm going to go pick up some new clothes. That's about it.
Edit: Oh! I forgot, I have a Halloween party to go to Saturday night.
Will you tell us what it is?
Try it now. Tell me what you smell.
Should my bf hate me forever because I served him moldy meat?
Are we gonna die?
B) You go to a house party. This girl is wandering around drunk, having a good time, but left her phone on the counter top. It's been an hour or two and she hasn't noticed she left it there, but she is still at the house. You take the phone for yourself.
WHICH IS WORSE? A or B? Or are they equal? Are both of these things considered "THEFT"?
b) != or =!
I use =/=.
What are other suitable gifts to buy a friend?
17 year old female dating a 15 year old male?
or college junior dating a high school senior?
(Edit: for both senarios the female is the older one and the senior would be 18)
Is it currently raining where you are?
What are your plans for the weekend?
What was your favorite magazine when you were a kid?
How would you spend it?
What do you do to console yourself/feel better when you are lonely?
I'm asking because I had never heard of her until I met her a few months back in my larp, (Yes. I'm a nerd. Moving on.) and now I'm trying to figure out how big of a writer she is.
1. Do you have any creepy/really creepy stories on how you met a SO?
2. If you were an amputee, would you respond to this ad? Pro:You get to be a part of a good costume idea. Con: you have to dress like a broken gay robot and you only get to see where you've been since you're on the furry's back
3. Would you go home with a really hot double amputee (legs) if he/she said that sex is SOOO much better if one person doesn't have legs because they get in the way sometimes?
4. Have you ever been attracted to someone who was missing a limb? Be honest. Do you think you could be attracted to someone who had only one arm and one leg if they were cute, funny and you guys had common interests?
2. I am waiting to hear back from the job I had two interviews for. They said they will let me know around Tuesday. Will I get it??
ps I have filled the comments with many boring questions. if you would like to answer them, please feel free to do so.
Who in the Los Angeles area would be interested in a TQC meetup? If you show interest, I will bug you about this later.
The two possible locations would be
So, that's art or science AND TQC face-to-face action
If this post is retarded you'll have to cut me some slack. I'm drinking
Have you ever completely made your own halloween costume? How did it go?
What are you being for halloween?
I know I probably shouldn't say anything, but it feels really bad that I am very clearly the only one excluded and that they feel like I'm an outsider because they don't even care if I *know* they're not including me. Is there any way I can approach them about it, or should I just sulk silently? I don't care if they all go out with each other and don't invite me, but isn't it rude to talk about it in front of me?
Also, I am the newest employee there, but the girl who started working only a week before I did goes out with them too, so my being new isn't the reason I'm not invited.
Have you ever lost a good chunk of weight (20 pounds/10 kgs or more)? How long did it take you? What did you eat/do for exercise?
2)If you were to have a marathon of a show this weekend, what show would it be?
3)Do you like classically likable protagonists or unlikable ones?
Unlikable- some ennui can be interesting.
Otherwise, what halloween candy are you giving out this year?
EDIT: I know that I COULD buy a cheap one, but I'd rather make one. I think it would be a fun arts-and-craftsy project.
Can you give me suggestions for very simple scenes I can draw for each month?
For those of you who cannot draw for crap, do you ever get the urge to draw something only to be frustrated when you realize you can't draw for crap?
How awkward does this make an otherwise simple conversation? Does it depend on whether they say it laughing or if they say it seriously?
i'm still in highschool, and this year is almost over. i have about four weeks of 9th grade left. i take this class called integrated studies which is basically a mixed class of whatever. last semester we studied resumes, fashion, a bit of biology, etc. for the rest of this term, we get to pick the assignment we do.
i don't know what to do. i can do an essay on france, or spaghetti, or the RSPCA. i could write a book or movie review. i could write poems or a short story. it doesn't have to be written, i can make an informational video or music clip for a song i like.
WHAT DO I DO, TQC? non srs answers appreciated
if you don't know/don't care, what are you allergic to? i'm allergic to morphine
Zombies, Aliens, The Devil ... etc ?
On mine, The Titanic hit the Iceberg, and President Lincoln was shot. The only celebrity I can think of with my birthday is Sarah Michelle Geller.
Do I go on this trip by myself? Or just ask for a refund on the cabin and stay in town this weekend?
What's your favorite way to cook ribs?
I have an indoor grill so I think I want to make them that way, cause it'll make the house smell awesome.
But later on in the month, I also really want to try making ribs in my slow cooker.
What surprised you coming home after moving away?
I am making a pork pie. (Pie-pie, not a hat.) Should I make a pork-and-apple pie with sweet and savory flavors within? Or should I make a basic Englishy meat pie with veg and potato and such?
If so, did it work? If not, how did it fail?
I got the Ped-egg which was pretty cool.
Did ghosts abuse me in my sleep?!
Do you get unexplainable bruises? :(
Have you ever quit a job for not giving you many hours?
Do you like your job?
