What'd you score? Do you think you're full of yourself?
I just emptied my spam email folder and actually gave a happy little sigh.
Do you bring your laptop with you when you go to the potty?
What do you call the potty?
I always feel weird breaking momentum to bust out a bottle of Astroglide and be all herp derp my vag is dry.
I'm not doing so great in school this semester. I already withdrew from a class I know I would have ended up failing, and I'll probably still fail another. The rest of my grades will either be 2 Cs and a B, or 1 C and 2 Bs, depending on how the next two tests go. I'm just not feeling school. I've always been a great student, so I have no idea what's up. I've gone through a lot recently, I guess, but I don't know that it's what's affecting me. I've just sort of lost the will to get up, go to class, and study/do my work.
If my GPA goes below a 2.0, I'll lose my scholarship. It's from my dad's work, so he'll be LIVID. I don't think it'll drop below a 2.0, but it'll come close. My dad will be disappointed and angry either way. It's my education, but he pays for the part that his work doesn't, and he's always had high expectations of me and it SUCKS to disappoint him because he gets mopey and depressed for weeks afterward.
I'm thinking about taking a break next semester and hopefully getting a job and just working, then returning to school that summer or maybe next fall. But I don't know if my scholarship will pick me back up if I don't go in the Spring, and I'm terrified to even bring it up to my dad. I just am not feeling it and I feel like if I'm just going to do poorly again, there's no reason for me to go until I get my shit together.
How should I go about bringing this up to my dad in the nicest way possible? What do you think I should do, TQC? Take a break, or suck it up and continue going to college so I can get out of there faster?
if you twitter can i follow you? (please insert name here)
no one i know twitters. its kind of boring.
Because I do.
What about kittens?
I would easily shell out at least 20 bucks, probably more if I was having a bad day.
i thought i'd sleep better excited, but i lay in bed for about two hours before i could actually sleep. horrible D:
You need something that's on the other side of the room.
A) Get up, walk your ass over there, get what you need, and walk back, or
B) Launch yourself, and your chair, across the room with one giant push of your legs, or
C) Whistle for your servant to come hand you what you need?
Does anybody else make superhero 'swooshing' noises while B'ing?
I know this had to have been a mistake, so I texted the mom saying "Hey _______, I know it was probably a mistake, but I just noticed that ________ only gave me $70 for 9 hours..." It was around 1:20am, and the mom was pretty sauced at 1am when I left.
I haven't heard back from her yet....should I try again? I feel awkward, but I need to get paid for what I worked. Mind you, they were 2 hours later than they had initially said they'd be...
I'll let you pick the topic.
What's your favorite song by her?
Does it annoy you when people incessantly have controversial political or religious status updates that are clearly things they would not say to others in real life?
Edit: thank you, everyone! Lots of great ideas.
2) What is 'tomato sauce' when mentioned in an American cooking recipe? In Australia 'tomato sauce' means ketchup so idk.
3) What is hot sauce (again, American cooking recipe)?
4) Can I replace white pepper with black pepper in a recipe? If not, why not?
By that I mean even if the tickets to movies were free, cds were given out like candy on halloween, and artists reverse-pickpocketed you, you'd pass them a 20 in the street?
TQC, what website is the best for getting used text books REALLY cheap?
I keep drumming my fingernails on my desk. It's annoying ME, so I can't imagine how much it's pissing off my coworkers :(
*or dinner or breakfast...whatever meal falls during your work schedule
or well, you know, whatever you would consider to be one? if you haven't had one you would define as ~romantic~
how about awkward?
will you show me a picture? any ol' picture will do.
how come when someone who has bad breath (particularly morning breath) swallows, you can smell the odor?
EDIT: okay, looks like i got an answer: The second major source of bad breath is the nose. In this instance, the air exiting the nostrils has a pungent odor which differs from the oral odor. Nasal odor may be due to sinus infections or foreign bodies.
What does your bed look like? (pictures!) Do you have a lot of pillows?
I'm torn between kettle corn and the white cheddar kind.
Well, and it takes a lot to beat lashings of melted butter and salt. So I'm torn THREE ways.
For me, it was Bolt. I had been putting off seeing it for a while because it looked really lame (and I usually love kids movies). But I saw it recently and LOVED LOVED LOVED it. I cried so much while watching it lol. I did not expect it to be as awesome and as much of a tearjerker as it was.
Do you go regularly or only when you need to?
How often do you brush your teeth?
Do you have "good" teeth, or are they "messed up"?
I've been dealing with massive jaw pain for the last 3 weeks and I can't take it anymore! I found a dentist that can take me some time tomorrow (I have to call in the morning and they'll work me in). They are going to deal with my emergency, then schedule me another appointment for a full on exam. It has been waaayyy too long since my last one (thanks to no insurance).
it still works but the battery won't stay charged for longer than 5 minutes.
is there anything i can do to save it (buy a new battery??) or should i just buy another phone off amazon?
How are you today?
My friend saw that a friend of her boyfriends exgirlfriend stupidly uploaded a video of them destroying some of his property, a bass, amp and clothing. He may press charges/sue so we'd like to get those videos before they catch wind of the fact that she'll be slapped in the face with the law.
I've already tried vixy.net and its giving me an error saying youtube is down.
Will you tell me of your experiences with jury duty—awesome, terrible, or other—to make me feel better about it? I'm terrified.
2. What is the most unlikely gift you've ever received?
( Collapse )
How much is a reasonable amount, in your opinion, for them to charge for the service?
So tell me TQC what would Your sobriquet be? what would you want it to be? what are you hate for it to be?
Do werewolves see in color or black & white?
would a smut-sharing party with your friends be a horrible or awesome experience?
(His personal life, his business endeavors, why Ivanka is such a lovely lady, his hair, his opinions, Rosie O'Donnell, his friendship with Regis Philbin, his golf courses.)
Apparently I was just assuming the worst and trying to trick myself into hoping it meant something different, but I have found it may be for the best, thank you.
If so, what kind are they and what kinds of music do you play?
Please post photos of your guitar(s) if you have any.
420 _(verb)__ _(noun)_ EVERY DAY
EDIT: CAPSLOCK IS MANDATORY
Edit: I took it back just so they'd know, and the guy wouldn't let me just leave. He told me I could either fill out an incident report (wtf?) or he would give me another order.
SOO, what's your favorite kind of smoothie? Is it from a particular cafe/place? Plz tell.
What movie should I rent for us?
Keep in mind: we both have horrible taste in television and movies. Our favorite show is The Nanny and the last movies that we saw include "Where the Wild Things Are" and "Slumdog Millionaire"
On a totally different note:
My boss keeps taking our invoices and then saying that he didn't in order to *lose* them so they can't be paid.
Should I start making copies of every single invoice so that we have a hidden file? Should I suggest we get a scanner and start scanning everything into our computers?
I have been home with our 2 year old throughout my pregnancy, and am now our baby is due in the next two weeks. My husband works full-time. I am looking for ways to bring in some extra cash, now and after the baby is born... I am really great at revising and creating resumes and cover letters, so I've offered those services to my friends. I've also considered offering some after school care for maybe one kid (there's a middle school nearby), but have decided against it because I am getting too close to my due date and I think my son and a newborn will be enough kids in the house for awhile at least. I like making crafts and things, but don't really have a particular kind of craft that I dig making/would be worth money - so I'm open to ideas for things that sell well, but don't cost much in the way of supplies.
I'm really hoping for some creative ideas and suggestions - thank you in advance.
The sources I've been reading have different cooking times for different legumes. What would be the best way to cook this up? I was thinking boil it up and then add it to rice, how long should I cook the mix for?
Today in my teaching math/health/science class we watched presentations. A girl did one that involved glass blowing, and the phrase "glory hole" was specifically written in the powerpoint. I had to hold back my laughter.
1. pour the water in your mouth?
2. suck the water out?
3. squeeze the bottle so the water shoots into your mouth?
question inspired because i had a tiny water bottle earlier and was trying to suck out the water and it wouldn't work. :|
Like, I know it depends on the people and stuff like that, but I want to know your thoughts on it...
It is tiny and cluttered
No sunlight gets in.
All the colours & posters clash.
A rat cage would be more pleasant.
What do you do to lessen the gloom?
Edit: Can't re-paint, the walls are piss-yellow
What were the reasons?
Is there a longer span of time when the situation loops around on itself and you can play the "Hey, I found your number in my phone" card?
I usually get them at Target because I'm cheap, but the selection has been bad lately and the quality is usually not very good. I don't want to pay too much, and I'd prefer to buy them in a real store rather than online. I know about Sock Dreams, but that's kind of my last resort if I don't find some locally. I don't like paying shipping. I've heard they have an IRL store in Portland, but I don't know if I'll have time to go into the city this weekend :(
I don't have cards or professional pictures or anything, but I think they know that. HALP.
edit: yes, definitely a scam.
ALSO AND VERY IMPORTANT: WHERE DO I GO TO GET A PHILLY CHEESE STEAK?!?!?!?!?!?!
We want to get a house full of cats. So, does that now make us Lesbianists?
Would you still do this?
You're driving home late one night. It's in the wee hours and you're going down a sharp lonely turn when you accidentally hit someone. You get out of the car, and you see that it's a middle aged blind man. You can tell he's blind because of his seeing eye dog, which you didn't hit. The blind man is holding his knee and hollaring in anger and pain. Before you can approach he's calling you every foul name under the sun and insults your parents. Despite your soothing words, he continues to let out filthy name after filthy name at you, insulting your intelligence and accusing you of being inbred. You look around. There's no homes around here. There's no one here except you and this fellow. What do you do?
What about some song lyrics that you think are kind of clever?
My answer in the comments.
What are five items that this young entrepreneur absolutely must stock in the store?
What is it with Ashton Kutcher and much older women?
2. Do you have any allergies?
3. What are some good mp3 blogs?
Will you please post the cutest animal picture you can find in response? I don't care if it's your pet or not. Just make me fall off my chair with a cuteness anyuerism.
My little sister Allie and her girlfriend, Christy, broke up 3 weeks ago. They had been dating for 2 years and were living together. Christy was Allie's first love and Christy broke up with her. They were never fully out with their relationship because Christy was only out to a few people. The breakup sucked in a lot of ways- Christy brought a friend with her to break up with my sister because she needed 'emotional support'. It was short and Christy didn't want Allie to talk very much. Christy also didn't really explain why she wanted to break up with her.
Now my sister has found out by word of mouth that Christy fell out of love with her. This is all hitting Allie very hard as she is still in love with her. Allie thought she was done with the period of intense mourning but today she called me sobbing. I let her talk as much as I could, tried to give her advice that didn't suck and just tried to be a good sister. I've been trying to talk to Allie every day in one way or another, either over the internet or on the phone.
I'm really hurting because Allie's hurting. I really wish I could wave my magic wand and make everything okay. I want to do something really awesome for my sister. We live on opposite sides of the country so sadly we haven't been able to hang out. I'll see her over Christmas but I want to send her a really neat care package. What should I include in it?
ETA: a sex toy will be included in this package. I don't know anything about vibrators and such. What should I get her?
Do you have any funny/interesting/rage-inducing stories involving TSA?
Guys, have you ever gotten into a physical altercation with a family member of the previous generation (like an uncle, father, etc)?
What do you prefer to be called (a woman, man, boy, girl, chick, dude, guy, etc) in the context of "I know this _____ named [your name]."?
Sorry for the terribly awkward phrasing.
There's this African immigrant who goes to my school and he has creeped me out on a number of occasions. The first time happened when we were both in the bathroom at the same time, and he started chanting/singing to me out of nowhere. The most recent was today in the computer lab, we walked past each other and I think he growled at me. D:
Would this creep you out? What do you think I should do if he makes some socially inept gesture at me again? Serious and non-serious answers of course.
Do you watch Jeopardy? Are you watching the Teen Tournament? If so, who do you think will win?
I'm putting my money on Will, I think he comes up from behind and snake it.
Edit: Since so far the answer seems to be yes for the cookies: do you have any suggestions on how I can defrost my two sticks of butter quicker than just leaving them sitting out?
In the classifieds, 'be your own boss! drive a buggy on beale!" Of course, you have to supply your own horse. Also, people who stand on corners holding up signs like BIG CLOSING SALE. I've always wondered if they were day laborers or employees that got the short end of the stick.
Would you please share your favorite cobbler recipe with me - peach or otherwise?
Imitation is the highest form of flattery, y/y?
My best friend and I are talking about planning a european trip, we want to use a tour company. We've used goahead tours before, but are open to suggestions for another company.
Have you ever been on a tour in a different country?
Where did you go and what kind of tour was it?
What company did you use? Would you recommend it? Why or why not?
Oh also, do maraschino cherries go bad? I have a jar that's been in the refrigerator for...a while. What's their refrigerator-life?
I am super broke and have been applying to jobs like crazy, but nothing. I was thinking that in the meantime, until I find something, I could try pet sitting. However, I don't know exactly how to get into it. Do I put an ad in the paper? Online? What do I say and how much do I charge?
(I'm getting a drink there at midnight tomorrow for my 21st birthday! I want something in a martini glass to feel fancy and grown-up, but will reconsider depending on answers)

Last night I tried taking melatonin because everyone promised I wouldn't wake up groggy like with regular sleep meds. It didn't last all morning but I had to drag my butt out of bed this morning after a full night's sleep!
I made an English muffin at work and my co-worker asked me if it was "low-carb" and started badgering me. Is there some way for me to suppress my urge to rip her face off next time it happens?

The entire video is animated, and it's obvious that it's done by a computer, but it's not Pixar-style 3D. The video is made to look like an amalgamation of several Sim-type games, and is following someone through a typical day. One specific visual I can remember is an illustration of a cow divided into sections, then one "slice" from the center is isolated and becomes the meat for a sandwich. Musically, it's an electronic song, with a rhythm somewhat similar to "Around the World" by Daft Punk, and a single male vocalist (I'm pretty sure the vocalist had a British accent).
So, dear Question Club, the obvious question is... can anyone identify this video for me?
edit: answered! it's Royksopp's "Remind Me", thanks to arcadiansdream from whatwasthatone (and thanks to over_thefreeway for suggesting that comm)

Any good/funny hotel stories?
I don't have insurance so I can't go to the doctor, and my place of employment (for the last 8 months) has been really dicky about giving me my benefits. I'm wondering if it's worth it to go to the ER without insurance and just rack up a ton of bills just to have the peace of mind that I'm not on the verge of death.
As sad as it sounds, I'm depressed every day because I think it's my last. I can't enjoy anything because I feel like I'll drop dead within hours. It's ruining my life, for real, but I'm completely broke and I don't know where to go or what to do.
Has anyone went through anything like this? What did you do?
If not, what do you think I should do?
