Do you ever dream weird stuff?
Are your dreams really vivid?
I was telling my bff about the dream I had last night and she raised on eyebrow and was like "Man, you're dreams are so vivid!" and I was like "...yours aren't??"
I know, I know...if you want it to work it will, blah blah blah. Mostly I need someone I can talk to who will pretend to give a shit about my problems. Also I'm broke and don't have insurance.
We have a carpool that ALWAYS has to wait for that ONE late fat guy. Yeah, we're WAITING on YOU late fat dude. My life can't start till your fat ass gets here. TYRANNY OF ONE I call it
What could it be? (non srs answers preferred)
Is it easier to learn how to sail or how to fly?
Are there any desserts that you both bless and curse?
Have you ever had grits? Are you a fan?
What do you put in your oatmeal?
If you had to live on one food and one drink for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Brownie in a mug for anyone who's curious:
4 Tbs flour
2 Tbs Sugar
2 Tbs Cocoa (unsweetened)
2 Tbs oil (veg or canola)
2 Tbs of water or milk
Pinch of salt
about a 1/4 tsp of vanilla
Mix well in large mug and microwave for a minute or two or until soft in the middle. Enjoy!
If you make it, I would recommend leaving it in for a minute then check its consistency because you don't want it to get hard.
Current authors/books/series I have on it:
JK Rowling (Harry Potter)
Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse)
Jeffery Deaver (Rhymes series)
Jeff Lindsey (Dexter)
Kay Hooper (Various)
Julie Garwood (don't judge me!)
Tolkien (LOTR + others)
Terry Pratchett (Discworld + Good Omens)
George RR Martin (Song of Ice and Fire series)
Laurell K Hamilton (Anita Blake)
I have a few other various kinds, classics and such.
I'll read just about anything, but I like Fantasy first, then Mystery/Murder/Horror. I dabble in cheesy romance novels from time to time also.
do you prefer laptops or desktops?
Restrictions: I'm a vegetarian, and I don't eat frozen food.
Edit: I just got back guys! I got mushrooms, brussel sprouts, bok choy, pomegranates, zucchini, wine and soy sauce. CAN YOU BELIEVE I ONLY SPENT $8?
2.) Did you see Inglourious Basterds? Did you like it?
unedited for general dumb-ness (on my part)
When I wake my sister up, I switch on the light and poke her so she'll wriggle and bat at my hand for me to go away and then I can say that she's awake. Then after maybe fifteen minutes she'll either wake up properly or our mum'll go up and bitch at her.
how many chicken/chik'n fingers do you eat in one sitting?
who makes your favorite chicken/chik'n fingers/nuggets?
what do you like to dip them in?
They're in their late sixties, love Labradors, and have tons of shit already. I'm also at their house about four nights a week.
Should I just get their three Labradors Snuggies?
Also, am I required to send my boyfriend's parents a gift? They live in Nevada (we're in California) and I've only met the dad twice and the mom once.
srs and non-srs answers, go!
What class looks dumbest to people watching?
Which class is the most fun to do, regardless of how dumb it looks?
Did you pass your road test on the first try, or did it take a couple of times? If you had to take it more than once, what part of the test did you fail?
I'm taking my road test for the second time on Wednesday afternoon. I failed about a month ago because I hit a cone while attempting to parallel park.
No, what I think is happening is that most Americans would rather use their money to buy technology while most Europeans would rather use their money for travel. For example, give a Brit a thousand pounds and he is more likely to use it to go on holiday to Paris, Amsterdam or the like. Give a thousand dollars to an American and he is more likely to run off to the Apple store to buy the latest Ipod or touchscreen laptop.
I'm not saying that Europeans don't like their tech because they do. What I am saying is they are not crazy for it like Americans are. We have different priorities with our money.
What do you think?
If someone were to give you a thousand dollars/pounds/Euros/whatever, would you spend it on travel or tech? And more, importantly, what country are you from, so that we can see if the theory pans out.
EDIT: Forget a thousand dollars. Make it five grand or whatever. The point being, you only have two choices, tech or travel. You can't spend the money on anything else. No future house, past bills or what not.
How much tech (cell phones, Ipods, digital cameras, gaming consoles, what not) do you have?
i'm bored here.
If you can't decide on only one, go ahead and list as many as you feel are necessary to mention. Images and wikipedia links are highly encouraged.

If you DK, what other movie should I see this afternoon? I'm in Australia, which means that the really recent box office releases in America might not be here yet, but we have This Is It, 2012, The Time Traveller's Wife (none of those specific movies interest me however), etc...
If the question asks why I'm interested in the subject and what my plans are in the field, how much time should I spend talking about the curriculum/experience at the academic institution itself? IDK, I want to answer the question, but I feel like to not discuss the fact that you're actually applying for a degree program and not a job.... is weird.
& for those of you who don't care, what is one strange belief that you have?
Are you more likely to spend more or less time looking at an attractive person in public if they are listening to a portable mp3 player of some variety?
Which Matt & Trey movie should I put on right now?
I wish I could break everyone of the notion that they are, because I'd rather get a gift card to somewhere I shop (hey, it shows you pay attention to that much at least) rather than some little useless nick-nack.
Or should I not look a gift horse in the mouth? I sound like an ungrateful bastard here, don't I?
What movies do you like/love that are outside of your usual genre?
Do you think it's strange and/or surprising that the director of American History X wanted to take his name off of the film? How do you feel about the quality of that movie?
What are some movies that you would want your name taken off of if you'd been involved with them?
Have you ever been to a nudist beach?
What would you think of an acquaintance who did so with some regularity?
Are there any legit paid survey sites out there?
I had an idea but as I started to develop it, it was clear it was shit.
TQC, I need help. Inspire me?
What do you think of when you hear the phrase, "a process"?
What interesting processes do you go through/have you gone through?
It could be anything from "how to make a sock" to "the process of coming out".
My class is at 11:25 am and I always prefer to turn it in then, than wait until 4.
Do I skip my 9:30 am botany class that I also skipped last time and that I'm more than likely going to fail, to do my work before class? Or do I wait until 12:45 pm and do my work and hope that I finish in time for my lunch date to a place that closes at 2 pm? Obviously I'm bad with time management.
Are you procrastinating about something?
1. American TQCers, have you ever been to Mexico, Canada or the Caribbean? If so which ones have you been to?
I think it would be easier for an American to go these places than to go overseas and I am curious to see how many have actually gone.
2. Non-American TQCers, where are you from and what's the farthest you've traveled for a holiday?
And what should I get from the place that you choose? What do you usually get at JJ's, Chipotle, or a Chinese place?
I didn't really think i'd get that homesick moving away for uni. My mum's just left after a visit and i'd do almost anything to be going home with them. Even though I love it here.
My work buddy john got a unsigned note left in his locker last night, much discussion ensued!
Edit: have you ever been the secret admirer?

We're having a grey cup (Canada's answer to the super bowl I suppose) party in a few weeks.
Do any of you have any easy/relatively cheap appy ideas?
ALSO, Where can I buy [uncooked] chicken wings for a decent price?
They're so expensive at grocery stores.
Doesn't matter if they're .. flavoured? I can make my own sauce for them no problem, but I don't want to spend a ton to get a bunch of wings.
There's going to be about 50 guys at our place for this football party thing (pretty sure it's just an excuse to have a party) and I've been informed that chicken wings are a must haha.

2. For the kitten/cat owners out there, how much smooshy-face kisses and shnuggle time do you spend with your feline?
do you guys have history in medical school?
It's my first year, and obviously first semester. This semester we have medical history, next semester we're going to have Azerbaijan history. Do you guys have history in medical school too? I'm just wondering. What a pointless subject for medical schools. Oh, don't answer if you're in the same medical school as me.
Have a great day!
1. Would you give up your DVDs?
2. Is this cast superior or inferior to Peter Jackson's cast?
Mine's from Equilibrium:
John - What's the point of your existence?
Mary - To feel. 'Cause you've never done it, you can never know it. But it's as vital as breath. And without it, without love, without anger, without sorrow, breath is just a clock... ticking.

WTF do I want for my birthday? My mom is demanding a list for her and my siblings to pick b-day and Christmas gifts from, and all I can think of is "American Apparel gift card?" (I need new socks, don't judge). My birthday is in just under two weeks and I have no other ideas. Non-srs answers pls.

what was the best gift you are got and why?
I emailed her around 5:45 asking if she could help me again tomorrow and have not heard from her. I am reluctant to call since she mentioned on Facebook earlier she is feeling pretty bad today. If I can't be sure I can get home, I need to call my co-worker and see if she can cover my shift just in case. Obviously, I don't want to do so too late and def don't want to call her at like 5 in the morning. I can't get a ride home because I work my shift alone.
How much longer do you think I should wait to call my friend? It's 8:25 local. Or would you give her a break since she's helped so much and go straight to asking the co-worker to cover? I'd like to go in if I can, esp in light of garage bills, but want the bases covered just in case!
ETA Never mind! I tried to call my co-worker and her voice mail was acting all funny so after trying to leave a message 2x, I called my friend. She will kindly be driving Ms. Stormy once more! :)
I saw some people have dermal anchor's and I have been thinking about getting one.
Do any of you have them? Can you tell me anything about them? I dont know anyone who has one. I have a high infection/rejection rate with piercings so it makes me kind of nervous. (Although I have 17 piercings that have survived..)
EDIT: Also. I have jury duty tomorrow and I have never been to court/jury duty. Am I allowed to bring my kindle while I wait to have my questions asked or should I not bring it?

the adventure is, i want to take him to the barn with me and my friend because he's afraid of horses. i thought it'd be funny and i think we'd have fun in the end, 'cause there's other animals and kittens and this absurdly awesome dog named Seamus.
but then i started wondering about his fear of horses and if it's really a good idea. i don't think he's like REALLY afraid but i don't want to make him do something that wouldn't be fun in the end.
should i keep it the same or just not mention the horsies and say the adventure is going to see Zombieland or This Is It? a movie is just not a good adventure is the thing.

try to get a job?
Does the idea of the world ending in December 21, 2012 faze you at all? Whether or not you "believe" it, is it not still a possibility?
I've been wondering because I feel like I keep on seeing 2012 discussions, be it on TV or online, comcast had it on their homepage...of course, it's probably all hyped by the 2012 movie. But still. Do you think people will be frightened, staying at home on that day? Will you be? Or will the day blow over with ease? Presuming the world doesn't end. ;) Suppose the world did end then, what would you do/who would you want to be with?
What is she talking about, TQC?
One of my friends always IMs me and says "Oh, man, this guy I'm seeing blah blah blah" and then when I say something about my life, she just says "yeah" and then goes on to blab more about herself. She didn't used to be that way, but it's making me sad and not want to talk to her. :(

What song are you listening to right now?
Love & Theft - Runaway
(Scotties is also starting to do this, a little bit, but with a sharp tug, the corners will usually rip, whereas with Kleenex, you have to pull them apart with both hands and by then you've taken six out of the box, anyhow. Royale is still working as it ought, one tissue per tug, no resistance, pops up the next one easy as pie. I like Puffs Plus but we haven't bought them in ages, so I don't know if they'd give me this grief, too.)
What's your favourite tissue brand and why?
