OK, so I'm working on a film script right now and there's a lot of scenes of the characters walking from place to place. They live in a fairly safe neighborhood of NYC and due to it being NYC, they don't drive.
Obviously they pass by a lot of places in their travels. It's a farce and I want to include as many visual puns as I can, because this movie is fucking ridiculous as it is.
Can anyone come up with more puns?
These are the only ones I could think of:
I Shoes You
Ophelia Colon Proctology Clinic
Boi Vey (Jewish Gay Bar)
I have a cup of hot chocolate right now, and French Vanilla "creamer" in my room.
How gross would it be if I added a little of the creamer to the hot chocolate?
(I'm alternating between "ugh that would be gross" and "maybe it wouldn't be a disaster.")

TQC, why am I still awake? This is the 3rd night in a row that I haven't been able to fall asleep at a decent time.
Well, scratch that. I actually managed to crash out during the 1st Family Guy episode on Adult Swim tonight...so 10:00ish? But the husband woke me up when he came to bed, which was around 10:45.
It is now 1:00 a.m. and I need to be up in 5 1/2 hours for work. Besides drinking warm milk/tea, what can I do to help me sleep?
I'm graduating from college this spring and apparently will be expected to live in the "real" world - WTF is that? ( <-- Not the actual question.)
I understand that most college dorms are shitty and isolated, so I will attempt to explain: My dorm currently is the best place I've ever lived because it's somewhat like a "living/learning" community on crack - basically it's a fine arts/philosophy dorm and we attract all the freaks on campus. The end result is that you have a couple hundred kids available to hang out with, some of whom will inevitably be in the lobby at any time, day or night, doing/planning crazy shit of all varieties, leaving silly notes on the walls, etc. Most of us know each other and while we aren't all friends, we can leave our doors unlocked and we have some type of weird group solidarity going on. I'm not great at describing this, but use your imagination.
My question is: do you all know of any specific or general living situations for post-college "adults" that would mimic this sort of environment? Or any resources about such things? For some reason, I only ever hear about people moving into apartments and living lonely lives of isolation until such time as they may find a spouse - but I think it would be much more pleasant not to go that route. The only thing I can think of would be a commune or something, but I'm not sure how those exist in practicality and I rather like modern conveniences/being in a city.
So, any knowledge/ experiences with these types of living situations?
I got hooked up with a potential job today. A guy I know is related to the owner. It's just a small company, as far as I can tell there's only like 6-8 guys who work there. The owner's son was the guy I talked to mostly, he seemed really nice, about my age (21) and cute. He has a really distinctive name so I searched him on Facebook after I got home, just for fun. His profile was private but I could see his picture and it was him and two friends, all with swastikas on their chests giving the camera the thumbs up. I couldn't tell if they were real tattoos or just marker or something but either way...that kind of makes me not want to take the job now. I don't wanna work with Nazis =[
Would you still take it? It's not a great job but job hunting sucks and this one is falling into my lap.
What did you get on your SAT?

Any ideas? Have you done this?
In a month I'm flying home for Christmas, a 10-11 hour flight. I *always* get sick from plane travel! I'll catch a silly cold or often something nastier. Got any tips for keeping healthy this time?
We were watching tv the other night, and the main characters got accidentally stoned off some cookies. That got us thinking, "We're 25 and have never been high...I wonder what it's like" which led to "I want to try it once, just to see. It looks like fun."
The problem is, we would have no idea at all where to go about getting it.
What was your first time being high like?
Have you ever cooked pot into something to get high without smoking? (Does that even really work?)
If you wanted to get some weed right now, would you know where to get it?
Is it weird that it took me 25 years to get to the "I want to see what it's like" point, whereas I had no desire at all before?
How much money do you usually have leftover as "fun money" every month after you've put moolah aside for bills/savings/etc.?

What do you do? Move on? Become friends with them in hope that their relationship fails? Other?
I have been seeing this girl as friends for a few weeks now, and I just found out she has a boyfriend. Until then I thought that she was single, she has never mentioned him and I only found out through a third party. It must also be a long distance relationship since I have never seen him.
This is not the first time this has happened and I was wondering what others do in this same situation.
Hey! my friend and I are doing a project where we pick an ingredient and then make something with that ingredient. today's is Pomegranates and/or POM juice. I have never cooked/baked with either. Any ideas of recipes that I could make? (preferably ones that don't take TOO long since I can't make them till after work)
I had this idea for a website, and I'm just wondering if anyone knows of something similar out there.
Ya know how you'll be watching a movie, and see some minor character that you know you've seen before, but you have no idea what his name is? Someone that you say "I've always liked the characters he plays, but I have no idea who he is." What I suggest is a website where you can enter in two movie titles, and it will cross-reference the entire casts of the movies, telling you which actors were in both of them...letting you figure out who the person in question is.
For example, the guy who played the glider pilot in "Saving Private Ryan", the scientist in "Escape From LA", and the guy who killed the hooker in "Se7en".
Anybody know if anything like that exists? I'm one of those people who is GREAT with remembering faces, but it drives me crazy to be all like, "That' the guy who played ________ in _________." when I don't know their name.
Yes, I know you can IMDB the movie itself, but then you have to A) scroll through the entire cast, and B) know the character's name (if they even had one).
Okay excuse me for being stupid... but
What do you remember from school when learning about the I BEFORE E rule? I recall I before E except after C or some shit.
But this doesnt make any damn sense to me and then I always type a word out and it doesnt look right. So if you dont know how to spell the word or you are having one of those Duh moments when typing something up and it just doesnt look right. How do you remember how the I and e rule goes?
I always feel when typed, words look extremly odd and then I doubt myself on spelling it right.
If you dont care or dont have a good answer...

I saw a recent ad on television for OnStar that showed a police dashboard camera view of a high speed chance. The police call the OnStar operator and they disable or slow down the vehicle and the police make an arrest. The ad says something to the effect of “OnStar helps save lives” or whatever. Just wondering, given the fact that most people don’t steal cars regularly and that high speed pursuits are very dangerous (I mean there is entire shows dedicated to the footage on Spike and G4), should this type of equipment be standard and subsidized by law enforcement agencies in an effort to reduce accidents associated with high speed pursuits or is it a little too Big Brother for you?
Would it be weird to facebook my ex's friend (we only communicated because of my ex) and ask him for a (very simple) recipe?

So, I went somewhere in hopes of a job and they told me to e-mail my resume to them, mentioning that I met with the manager.
1. Should I copy and paste my resume or attach it? Or both?
2. I figure I'll have a paragraph/cover letter type thing first. I don't know what to say besides, "Hello, my name is Emily and I met with so-and-so on Thursday regarding . I've attatched my resume, as you can see I have 2 years doing , and I have extensive knowledge of beer. I am also local and have unlimited availability."
How do I make that sound better? Obviously I don't do this often.

ETA: Does your sternum ever pop?
I pop the knuckles of both index fingers (sometimes my left knuckle pops so loud it surprises me) and sometimes the others on both hands, I tend to pop my large toes, and when I stretch I can hear my back pop all the way up my spine (I hate that).
I had my first round of fillings done today. I was told not to eat anything for about an hour, and when I am able to eat, to stick to soft foods (no hot pizza, no hot coffee or tea, no hard foods, etc.) My tongue feels like it's taking up the left half of my mouth.
What are some good foods to eat when you get fillings for your teeth?
Ummmmmm, when you think of a jock-strap is your first thought to do with athletics, or gay porn?
So I have a huge crush on this guy, and we haven't spoken since Sunday, and I really want to talk to him but I don't want to seem like I'm clingy/obsessed with him. He already knows I like him and he says he likes me too. Should I call him today? If not, when should I?
What, if anything, do you collect?
Is it considered rude to ask someone what they do for a living?
A lady I volunteer with/work for on an informal basis, named P, has a friend and partner (they do art stuff together) named X. X is the managing director at a local art/music/food venue which means she handles all the interviews and job applications for new positions.
Is it unethical for X to openly share information about potential employees and applicants to P just because they're friends? I don't know what the actual "rules" are per se, and I don't know if "confidentiality" exists in the world of hiring & firing, but P casually brought up all this information about my having applied to two positions there, and I felt like, uhhhhh, you should not know this stuff! And I didn't know how to react, because she's kind of my boss. I also think P might have let slip some untrue information about me that might have led to them not considering me, which also sucks (i.e., that I wouldn't be available to even work the position, which is not true, but she didn't know that).
It seems unprofessional for X to talk about any of that at all, to anyone, but I'm not sure. Thoughts?
how was it when you met your current (or any past) significant other's parents for the first time?
any embarrassing or funny stories?
gotta do it tonight and i'm kind of freaking. (:

1. Are there any shows that make you cringe with embarrassment, if so, which ones are they?
For example, I can't bring myself to watch "Dancing with the Stars." The moment the "stars" hit the stage with their fake smiles, I am embarrassed for them. ("You were once a senator. Now you are wearing a glittery vest. Why? Why?")
2. If you were about to go into war, for whatever reason, what would be your battle anthem?
I was recently in Huntington Beach, California. On their OCTA (Orange County Transit Authority) buses, the majority of them said "No Smoking," and underneath that it said "No Welding". What the fuck does that mean in terms of busing? srs and non.

for my history paper, should i write about the plague or about smallpox?
eta: the paper can't focus solely on europe/rome/greece, and needs to be mainly before 1500. i can pick a topic besides plague or smallpox, but i want to do something disease related.

Oh, I'm also going to Cuba as well, if it true American people can't go there?

should i go? if not, what should i do instead?
Its getting dark at 4:00 PM these days, and the early darkness has got me feeling a little down and just...blah.

Ever had to call 911? Share your story/stories, plz. :D
Me: It seemed like a big deal at the time, it was my first night home alone and someone knocked on the front door at 3AM. I went to look out the window but there was no one there, so I called the police because I was freaked out. Apparently another house a block down called with the same complaint. Thank god for my dog, whose barks I believe may have made potential burglars move on?

1.) I have lost my licese sometime between saturday night leaving the last bar, and home on sunday. It was no longer in my back pocket of my jeans. I was only at the bar for 20 min. Where do you think it could be? Where is yours normally when you've lost it? It is very important that I find it because I fly out for vegas on monday and will need it.
2.) Is there anyone you just want to throw a brick at right now because they seem unappreciative? Do you think maybe it is swinging both ways but you are so upset that you dont give a crap?
3.) A mood cheering question... I have wanted to ask it all day! Are there any type of questions you feel like you specialize in and really help someone out with when they post to TQC?
(ex: I get really excited when people post about hair because I am a cosmetologist.)

I'm not kidding. My room is significantly hotter by probably ten degrees. It feels like a sauna and there's nothing I can do! I have a fan but it doesn't help at all.

Do you have any idea how to make my leg stop twitching?? I've tried taking a bath, massaging it, relaxation techniques, upping my intake of calcium, salt, and potassium, and I've even resorted to punching it (which really didn't help, lol).

Would it be rude to wear earplugs in a restaurant with a friend? The wearer (i.e. me) would be in pain without them. If it's loud enough to need them I'm assuming it would be too loud for a conversation anyway, but idk, I feel like it would still be rude. Only other option is to just not go to the restaurant. What do you think?
Before I go to sleep I want to do one of those random 40+ question memes. Not the ones where you check off every book you've read, but the ones that ask stuff like "which of your toes is the cutest" or "what color was your first car." I just need something else to think about, after this day of madness.
What's a nice long random meme I could do?

Suppose you and your pet (big dog/cat/whatever) get locked up in a dungeon and there is no way out (!!!!). You only get fed one small bowl of watery vegetable soup a day, which is nowhere near enough for your pet, much less both of you or even you yourself. Eventually you'll both starve to death. As time goes by, how do you distribute the soup? Half for your pet? None for your pet? Would you give your pet up to starvation to keep yourself alive a little bit longer?
