Do you speak any invented languages such as Klingon, Esperanto, lojban, etc or have any interest in learning?
( Collapse )
What would you consider excessive, TQC?
We also don't get paid for our paid holiday if we are out immediately before/after the holiday. We had Thursday off and I worked Friday. Do you think there's any possibility of calling in Monday screwing up my holiday?
eta: Nowhere in the handbook is there even a general guideline for what they consider excessive. :(
I've never received one.
i just got done watching despeate housewives.
thats the only primetime show ive loved for every season and watch every episode.
WHAts your gotta watch no matter what, watch religiously show?
what do you like about it ?
do you grow attached to the characters?
what would we do without movies and music and tv?
does it still hold the same ~magical~ feeling as i assume it did when you were younger? or has the christmas spirit slowly withered away as you grew up? or... has it never felt ~magical~ to you at all?
i wish i could celebrate christmas! putting up pretty lights, going to parties, buying gifts, etc. :(
(rocket attack this morning,I made a nice bench that was burned for firewood, the weather is going to change to CRAP thisafternoon AND it's MONDAY already here)
What would you say to calm me down?
What would you say to antagonize me?
note this is completely non-srs
I remember how you're able to learn languages with ease, and right now I'm really jealous of that.
Which one looks better? Are both of them too awkward?
I'm staying with my great-grandma to help, and she's sleeping down the hall and I can hear these loud pantie-ripping farts and I'm trying so hard not to laugh loud that I think I busted something.
I know its the season, but over the last couple weeks i've been sick for two weeks, then back for one, now i've been sick again for the last three days.
Whats worse is, the health officials encourage you to stay home. I can't! I have things to do. :( But.. today I will. It feels like i've been beaten with a potato sack.
What did you think of Andromeda?
Do any of you guys eat frozen or canned vegetables?
What sort do you buy, and what brand?
Is there even really that much of a difference once they're cooked?
Edit: I like to make brown rice and broccoli with soy sauce a lot, would frozen broccoli be good to use in that way or should it only be used for pasta/egg dishes?
2 - Think of someone whom you politically vehemently do not like. Is there anything they have done or said that you approve of?
3 - Has anyone ever told you that you converted him/ her to your POV?
4 - Have you ever changed your mind due to something someone else said from an opposing political view?
5 - How hard do you try to see things from the oppositions POV?
Where should we go for lunch today?
If you vote Olive Garden please tell me what your favorite soup is. :D
What should I have for lunch today? I usually have a turkey sandwich, but I'm pretty sick of turkey at this point.
If you've adopted a dog from the Humane Society, what are the chances of getting it if you're the second applicant?
My brother is getting married in January and this weekend is my future SIL's bridal shower. I've never been to one so I have a question or two. I know that I have to get her a present. Is this the same present as their registry or is this a separate present for her and then I have to get them another off the registry? Also, if it is a separate present what should I get her?
My shotgun courthouse wedding did not prepare me for this.
I live in Dallas and there has been a lot of debate here over whether or not the city should build dedicated bike lanes within the city. One group says that these lanes encourage more people to get out and cycle and that they are inherently safer than rider education alone. The other side is arguing against the installation of bike lanes because they say it only further encourages segregating bike riders from vehicular traffic and that the lanes would be very limited in the actual number of routes versus roads.
My question is this: With the exception of freeways and other major highways, do you feel that bikes should be able to ride in the street and be treated like any other “car” on the road, or that for the safety of the riders, they should be limited to using only city build bike lanes?
What does your city have if any?
If you aren't married, would you celebrate your dating anniversary after you got married?
If yes, why?
No. And I can't understand why people would want another date to have to remember/celebrate.
Why does my itunes suffle suck today? It's never been this bad. I'm busy cleaning the house and it keeps play slow/sad songs, audiobooks or repeating the same artist every other song. ugh.
Does anyone else do this?
What are bridal showers like where you live? (Where do you live?)
Reading wedding questions/answers online has always baffled me.
Are you drinking anything right now?
What's for lunch?
(To give you an idea of the importance of the tree to me - I had a nightmare someone did it wrong last night)
Whats the most important part of Christmas for you?
Harmless or stalker-ish?
If you don't drink cocktails, does it ever snow where you live?
So, TQC, will you give me some suggestions?

If you don't give a damn: Is anyone else in disbelief the year is almost over already?
I tried to live without music on my trips but finally cracked and took my dad's mp3 player when he left it behind.
Only to find he has 2 Twilight audio books on it.
When did my dad turn into a little girl?!
What would you do if your parents read Twilight?
2)What do you think about tofu?
I really like it.
Which is worse: snow or cold rain?
What are your thoughts on Obama talking about "breaking free from the essential constraints"?
I obviously missed it in 2001 and hadn't known about it until today, but what would you say about a statement which is so incredibly untrue? Not only does the constitution say what the federal government can do on our behalf, but it says what the state government must do on our behalf.
Will you tell me some of your bad eating habits to make me feel somewhat better about myself?
ps. Did you know that when you drink Coke after a mouthful of vanillary fairy floss that it tasted like Vanilla Coke. Yum!
I really seem to have a sensitive tongue but I will sit there and eat sour candy (mostly warheads ) until my tongue is bleeding and I just cant take it anymore... I also really love Andy Capps hot fries but they are so hot they hurt my lips/tongue but I cant seem to stop eating them..
As for stomach, Sushi. love it but I almost always end up regretting that I ate it.
So is it unfair that I have to put up with 2 extra people but still pay the same amount every month?
Should we make the brother pay rent?
Should I find a random guy and invite him to live in our bathtub? Rent free of course..it's only fair.
Who put the ram in the rama lama ding dong?
What's your general advice for buying computers? (I'm getting a PC and won't be talked out of it.) I've had this one for like nine years, I've never had to buy my own.
Also, I'm sure this doesn't make a difference, but I'm looking for a desktop without auxiliaries. I don't want a laptop.
I am in CANADA, tomorrow is DECEMBER, and surrounded by three bodies of water which always makes for a rough winter. We are still wearing open-toe shoes/sandals and I haven't seen anything in the realm of a winter coat yet. There has not been a single snowflake as of yet, we usually have snow before Halloween.
Do you like frozen pizza? What's your favorite?
When did you last have sex?
What song gets you hot/makes you feel sexy/makes you feel like gettin' dowwwn?
Do you currently have a crush on someone who is in a relationship?
I have a crush on my boyfriend, who I am in a relationship with.
Will you describe your favorite candy WITHOUT names/brands/etc (only using chocolatey, fruity, gummy, etc) so we can guess what it is?
Northern hemisphere people: Has it snowed where you live yet? If not, are you eagerly awaiting snow? Or dreading it?
[Edit: Can someone make me a Hanukkah icon based on a photo of Miso? (The calico cat in my icon). I don't have any image programs on my new laptop =(]
but my fiance will eat anything and he wants me to learn to cook by experimenting.
I am trying to make a broccoli and cheese soup, I doubt it will be that great because it is my very first time and there are probably lots of extra ingredients I should add that I don't have on hand.
my question is, do you like rice in soup?
I haven't seen many broccoli and cheese soups with rice, but he told me to experiment!
If you are a University student/hope to get a degree one day, would you choose a "gender neutral" degree? Are you M or F?
My answer: No, F.

Yes, I DO know how to make a hyperlink AND make it open in a new window... lol
My grandmother. Oh dear fucking GOD.
How do you keep the Christ in Christmas?
that i can eat for at least 3 days
how are you feeling today?
i'll be on the internet when a small bubble pops up on the bottom right corner of the screen. it says: "internet disconnected". within a few seconds, the entire computer shuts off. i noticed that whenever this happens, the bottom of the laptop feels really hot. do you think the computer shuts off due to it becoming overheated?
i have it on a normal, wooden desk and keep it unplugged unless it really needs to charge, but it still gets hot very, very quickly. i just assumed it was because the factory fucked up and this model is all faulty. would a laptop cooler/fan help? if you've tried them, have they been effective? which one would you suggest? if not, can you suggest something else that might eliminate this problem?
edit: lol. okay. this is what i thought.
Is it rude to ask someone if they have hair extensions?
Would you be offended if someone asked you if you were wearing hair extensions? (assuming you were in fact wearing them)
Is anyone doing any homemade holiday gifts? What are you making? (feel free to include pictures)
I'll be moving my jeep, whether that means driving it there or shipping it. Does anyone know of good ways to ship a car?
I'll be moving a bedroom's worth of furniture. Does anyone know of inexpensive/cheaper ways to do this? (eta- I dont want to sell anything and buy new out there. I love all of my furniture and have purposely been collecting and saving my stuff for 5 years so I wouldnt have to buy a single thing once I moved.)
Really, just any tips or hints? Stories? I'd rather just pack my dog, cat and myself up and fly there, and have my stuff sent cross country. The idea of driving there myself makes me want to cry. I hate that drive. It's three days of suck.
(I've been googling shipment methods, companies, etc... and still feel totally lost.)
HOW DID YOU DO IT?
Mine seem to be falling asleep 10+ times a day, and it's becoming extremely painful. Sometimes I wake up at night and my arm will be so numb that I will touch my leg, and get startled because I don't know who's touching me. I don't even know I'm moving it!
Are you procrastinating right now? If so, what are you supposed to be doing?
I was instantly of the opinion that Judy should have been telling her child off, not the assistant (Judy apparently told her child that she was going to tell the police, and that was all).
What is your opinion TQC?
Have you ever had something similar happen whilst at work?
If you work in retail, how do you deal with children intent on destroying your store and/or products? (If this is indeed something that would happen to you of course.)
"Brave men tell the truth, A wise man's tools are analogies and puzzles, A woman holds her tongue, Knowing silence will speak for her."
Edit: apparently it's part of the lyrics to "Remind Me" by Röyksopp. It's out of context, so nvm about the question.

What's the best way to get rid of an occasional bout of heartburn? I don't have any Tums.
Addendum: I just installed Sims 2 Seasons and now all my custom content is fucked. Wtf happened to it all? The only things I've been able to find is a few recolours of the original Maxis items.
There's so much hype about it here, but it wasn't as frightening as I expected.
If you do not currently have any decorations in your home, then
Also, what is your favorite candy?
I bought tropical skittles today and really wished I hadn't. Fave candy is Crunch bars.
Have you ever started a job where you immediately felt at home? What were you doing?
what old video games did you play all the time when you were younger?
there's one game for the PC I loved, although I cannot remember the title for the life of me. I just remember there was a big tree and you controlled little creatures around. it was almost like a Sims type of game where you made them do stuff - they could pick things up and work machinery and go to different levels of the tree in little elevators. does anyone remember this? I'm racking my brain.
Mine: I just took my dog out to poop and for some unknown reason he had some insane diarrhoea that got all over his butt fluff (he has ample hair on his rear end that dangles down), left leg, tail, and some even on his back! Problem is, I don't live in a house and there isn't a hose outside with which to clean him. So I had to bring him into the underground parking, into the garbage room, retrieve a clean plastic bag from the garbage room, PUT HIM IN IT (well, the shitty parts of him) and then carry him through the underground parking, up the elevator and down the hall to my condo where I could finally wash him.
If you have a lot of friends/family with different faiths, what do you (or would you) do for holiday cards?
Do you buy two sets of cards? Do you get one basic set of non-religious cards?
My boyfriend's family as well as 80% of my friends here in NYC are Jewish (although not at all strict about anything), but my family are all "KEEP THE CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS!" so it's sooooooooo conflicting.
Also, I got a coupon for 50% off photo cards at Duane Reade, and I am thinking THAT IS A FANTASTIC DEAL and they have an awesome design, but by myself would look silly. So how weird would it be for my SO and I, who have been dating a little under a year, to have photo cards already? REALLY WEIRD?
What are your favorite places to buy holiday cards from?
I love Kate's Paperie and their selection, but they are PRICEY.
How exactly does one start learning basic important-to-know car ... stuff? What you'd learn in a high school auto shop class, I guess. Sadly, Google isn't helpful for "basic important-to-know car stuff." Any good websites? Any advice for something you definitely think I should know?
And, less self-centeredly: what horrible car-related misadventures have you gotten into? Accidents, thefts, being unable to start your car at 3 AM in an empty parking lot ...
What was the last thing you ate? Can you describe it in detail?
Also, I've got 7 google wave invites. Does anybody want one? give me your email address if you do.

2. Will you post pictures of you & your sibling(s) (if you have any)?
Does anyone you know do this?
turn on A&E right now! new episode of hoarders is on and it is unbelievable.
My suite-mate only cares about herself. Seriously. Whenever I talk about anything, she interrupts me or waits until I'm finished and changes the topic and it isn't just with me but everyone else around her! She never asks how I'm doing or how anyone is doing. It's all about her. It's almost to the point of being ridiculous and not normal. The funny thing is, she wants to be a NURSE. not only that but a psychiatric nurse! Apparently her parents tell her it's not the job for her but she disagrees. It's amusing to me because I cannot imagine her ever taking care of someone and doing it out of the goodness of her heart? HA. It's almost like a chore to her.
Also, are people raised this way? Why would she be so uninterested in anyone else that it's kind of frightening?
Will you then proceed to find someone you have something in common with and talk to them?
LET'S BE FRIENDS
If a friend/family member/SO was dead or dying, would you?
What is the ugliest accent someone can have?
You can have great wealth for the rest of your life. Think $1,000,000 a year for each year of life. But...in exchange for this wealth, you'll lose 7 years of your life. You'll die 7 years sooner than you would have died normally and nothing can change that. Do you still want the money?
You can live an extra 20 years longer than your particular life expectancy would ordinarily dictate. Say, if you were supposed to die at the age of 80, it's now been postponed to 100. But in exchange, you'll spend the rest of your life below the poverty level. You'll never seem to break even. It'll feel like you've been cursed, which you have been, but you'll live 2 extra decades as your compensation. Want the extra 20 years?
Edit: For question 2, you really have no idea how long you'll live. Say you're supposed to die at 40. You can extend that to 60. Just sayin'
I get the idea that the girl distracted him so he forgot the list... but why did the van tip over? My friends and I have been trying to figure this out and we still don't get it.
