Last night I stuffed a half-dozen doughnuts into my pie hole.
What is the WORST that can happen???
I feel so cheap....
What is the most adventurous thing that you've ever eaten? And what is the most adventurous thing that you would LIKE to eat?
I've eaten ostrich, buffalo, chicken feet (dim sum restaurant). I'd love to try ostrich egg, which I hear is very rich, and I've been meaning to try rattlesnake, which is unavailable on the east coast. I'd also love to try milk from different animals, like camel or goat.
Why or why not?
How long would you wait to leak information about it?
ETA: Redefined celebrity.
I ask this, because if it's true about Tiger Woods... his affair went on for three years before it finally came out. I think that is just wrong. Cheating of any kind, celebrity or not, is inexcusable.
A friend of ours is having a Game Night, most likely Charades
...so once the wine gets pouring, it can get pretty interesting.
What would you do if your parents did something like this without you asking them?
Do you feel that it is undermining in any way for parents to get directly involved with their children’s personal relationships?
So I decided I wasn't gonna take him back, but at the same time I miss him and don't wanna hurt him etc etc. but he keeps doing this childish shit like saying "I'm just gonna fuck other girls since you won't take me back" and so on. I wish I could just stop caring about him and be done with it.
What do I do, TQC? srs and non-srs advice, please.
Edit: Pretty much told him to fuck off. I feel like shit, but I guess it's for the best? x:
Guesses on name?
If you have one/ had one what's the strangest message you've ever recieved or strangest thing thats happened on the site?

It just came to me that N.W.O. is probably New World Order, but I'm still not quite getting the symbols. Help me, conspiracy theorists, you're my only hope!
EDIT: lawl, the Illuminati? AWESOME. I have an encyclopedia full of secret fraternity whatevs. Totes looking this shit up when I get home. At least the bus stop graffiti is being more interesting than the usual tags done in Sharpie. XD
Did you go to a co-ed or same-sex school?
Do you know people from same-sex schools who have unhealthy gender relations or beliefs about such? Examples plz.
How are you able to remain friends with people who don't believe in gay rights? Do you find it impossible?
3. What's your local legend or bogey man? Got anyone like Colonel Sanders, The Blue People, Herry the Lake Monster or Sweet Evening Breeze to claim? http://unusualkentucky.blogspot.com/2008/06/sweet-evening-breeze.html
Do you think in your lifetime you will see a female playing in The NBA or any other professional league that is all male right now? Do you think it would be more likley to happen with a team sport like basketball? Could it happen somewhere besides the NBA?
I know we've seen a couple of one shot deals like on the PGA and in The NHL, however I mean could she be on a team and play on a regular basis.
Is that a little weird, or just the way these kinds of things will be going forward?
I was asked how the children of a homosexual couple get their last names in Spanish speaking countries. Each person in our countries has 2 last names: the 1st last name is the 1st last name of the father and the 2nd last name is the 1st last name of the mother.
As much as I have researched only Spain (of all spanish speaking countries) allows adoption of children by homosexual couples or allows one of the partners to adopt the child of the other partner in the couple. Sadly, there's no information about how the last names are distributed.
For those of you who have a clue: How is the rule? Do you have any sources?
For those of you who dont, how do you think this should be solved?
I hope I explained this well enough...
Do you think it's okay to use the concept as political blackmail?
Do you think it's ironic that the food corporations are pushing for the furthest left major party, the NDP?
Of you Canadians, are you going to be eating out as much, knowing your bill just increased? Do you think the food industry will follow through on their threat?
Do you think it's a
Inspired by the current political crisis in Canada and the blackmailing of the Ontario and now BC government over HST (combined tax), which means that full tax (~12%) is applied to all food, which means reduced tips, less customers, huge layoffs, and higher prices for eating out. BC Government Take and Food Industry Take. HST passed yesterday.
Bonus lulz in the food industry page of the premier's mugshot after his nth DUI.
2. My friend's car was broken into last night, as well as a few others on the street. My car is down the street. My car is nicer. My car was locked and had an alarm on. Was my car broken into?
I know this'll probably sound like a really cheesey thing to do, but I'm a goofy, cheesey kind of guy...and she likes it.
So, December 20th is the 1-year anniversary of my wife and I first meeting. I want to do something (not real big) just to earn the brownie points associated with remembering something corny like that.
Have you got any ideas for something that'd be both funny and sweet for your guy to do in that situation?
And leave me alone gardenofevils. I haven't asked a question related to her in a long time. =P
I have been tasked with organising the games, and I am not a games person. Bonus points for games that involve:
- keeping one's dignity
- sitting quietly
It is for a food co-op if that is relevant.
Did you ever dress and dance like these ppl on the video?
2. how do you usually watch your movies? do you rent DVDs, do you buy them, do you download them or stream them?
3. is anyone else as annoyed with alexa chung as i am?
eta: alexa chung is arctic monkeys' lead singer's girlfriend and a host of a tv show or music thing in the US, if i'm not mistaken. here
We get a lot of snow and ice here, but I'd like to wear something on my feet that isn't completely ridiculous and full of fur and rubber.
ETA: Pictures welcome!
2)Since that's a sort of boring question, what is your gift-wrapping style? I personally like to use brown paper grocery bags that I keep stowed to wrap gifts and then I decorate the paper once it's wrapped.
Or rather, why do people get surprised when I have incredibly blonde or lazy moments, simply because I wear glasses and read a lot? Even though I'm only seventeen?
I know I should act with more responsibility but I like being immature, and I spend too much time daydreaming sometimes. I'm graduating next year but I feel too young to be stepping into the world and start depending on myself.
Should I get the first generation and just pay the $10 to upgrade?
It's basically between the first and second, the third one is just too expensive.
Do you believe in ghosts?
Have you ever experienced something that you feel could only be explained by something paranormal?
If you answered yes to the second question, please share your stories!
For xmas, I decided to put together a sort of "anti-boredom" basket for my bf. I need some clever way to put it together rather than just wrapping them all separate. Should i put them in a basket with something over it, use a gift bag or what? Any other suggestions?
If it helps, here is what's in it:
A personalized Monopoly game (i replaced literally everything but the board with stuff that pertains to us.. ex: the pieces are little transformer characters instead of the thimble, etc), a talking Yoda stuffed animal, play dough, a Nintendo ds with a Lego star wars game, a book, and some little random entertaining stuff.
If you dk or dc, what is your favorite sweet treat?
what foods do you suggest i buy that are cheap and can cover more than one meal? if you were grocery shopping for an entire week with 20 bucks, what would you buy?
One of them was a tray of corn with some sort of white sauce - it was a thin sauce. It was slightly spicy. It didn't have anything else is in, like pieces of peppers.
It was SOOO good.
But there was no one around to ask what it was.
Have you ever had it? What was it?
How much did you have to drink and why?
If you could kill one person you know personally, who would it be?
WHAT IS WITH YOU PEOPLE?
THIS IS A LOOFAH
what are you up to TQC?
I love napping on my bed, on my stomach, smothered in blankets and pillows.
What's your favorite piercing? Not necessarily of yours, but just in general. Something you find pretty/attractive/etc.
I really want to see my friend and be there for her, but...she's just so unusually nonchalant about this. Perky, even. Like, the passing of her grandmother is just an inconvenience to our hang out time. It's weirding me out. But this could be her coping strategy, or maybe her grandmother has been sick for a long time and she's already grieved or...something.
Anyway, do you think I'd be a bad friend if I declined the invitation? She says there's a possibility her grandmother will be fine, but at the same time...I'll be staying in her room, so what if her parents come in to wake her up to say her last goodbyes to her grandmother? I mean...how awkward is that? And I lost my uncle a year and a half ago, and I remember that the last thing I wanted to do was deal with people, let alone house guests. When I asked her, "Do you want me to be there? Do you need a friend right now?" she replied, "No, no, I'm fine, but I would just really like to hang out!" So...fuck, I don't know.
What should I do, TQC?
Alternatively, what is your favorite vacation spot? Why?
I have this dress (don't laugh, I bought it for my Blade Runner costume) in my closet. If I wanted to wear it for New Year's Eve, what should I pair it with? I already have a wide black belt and shiny opaque black tights.
OR if that's way too skanky to wear, show me a pic of a dress you think is New Year's Eve-y/that you're going to wear or want to wear for New Year's?

Have you ever become emotionally bonded to a TV or movie character? I swear, every time Walter gets hurt or sad or Peter is mean to him I just want to cryyy!!!
(Yesterday at work, a guy was playing on a Baby Taylor guitar. He said, "Aww, it's so small!" His friend said...)
Can you explain bandwidth limits to me in kindergartener terms? My college has one and all my friends have been complaining about how they reached the limit and I have no idea what they're talking about. I googled it but it's in computer language and my brain is too fried to try to understand it. I just want to know, what do you have to do to use bandwidth? I DON'T GET ITTTTTTT.
I already know that they are delicious but I would like to know about their personalities. I held one this week and it "wheeked" at me and I was pleasantly surprised.
Since this will be at a Korean restaurant--and by 'Korean restaurant', I mean a restaurant in the country Korea--and I really don't want to offend my host (who I know wouldn't be so much OFFENDED as, "But...why aren't you eating this delicious food we gave you???? ;_;") I plan on knuckling down and eating whatever I can possibly stomach without my throat going, "oh lol yeah right try again next time" as I have a gag reflex that likes to manifest itself at the most inopportune times.
Assuming a miracle doesn't happen where I wind up liking something, is there any way to make this stuff go down easier? I'm thinking just making sure I'm stocked up on water/beverage and washing down every bite I take, maybe doing the thing where you spread your food around to look like you ate more, etc.
It wouldn't such a big deal, except I'm already gonna stick out enough on this trip as the only white chick, and I don't wanna stick out even more as the white chick who thinks she's too good to try the local cuisine omg Americans are horrible people. I'm just really picky--but I want to make a good impression :/ Also, I don't want to be hungry, of course.
I feel so bad that I've been worrying about this for something like a month now.
dkdc - what's the grossest thing you've ever eaten, and was it actually disgusting tasting or not so bad?
I was going to see one of my FAVORITE BANDS OF ALL TIME at about 9:00 (they're second band playing, show starts at 8). It takes me about half an hour to get to the venue.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
Things to note:
- I expect them to be here for about half an hour or so. I'm on the first floor, but you know... shit happens.
- If I go and they've already played, I'd have wasted train fare, my time, and ugh no fun.
- I have never seen them live and they're playing a show at a small venue in the city.
- I have to work at 9 tomorrow.
- I could always go to Jersey to see them play tomorrow, but it's a ride on the PATH train and a long-ass walk from the station to the venue and it would mean I'd be missing a friend's birthday party at karaoke tomorrow night (although I am taking her to lunch on my own and she has people there that I haven't seen in months that I'd just rather not see at all ever again).
- Actually, scratch that PATH shit: my boyfriend could drive us to Jersey, but I would have to pay him gas and he doesn't even know their music, but at least I wouldn't be going alone (like I am tonight).
NVM, I have decided on getting a bottle of wine, making some flan, and being awesome at home. Jersey tomorrow night! Boyfriend wants to get outta town, he's had a long week.
For dinner, should I have yogurt and fruit, granola, "soup at hand" stuff from Campbell's, ramen, oatmeal, or spend extra time out of my night to make chicken and chorizo chili?
What are you doing tonight?
Which would you rather get - $20 in cash, or $20 in scratch off lottery tickets? With the cash, you know what you're getting. With the tickets, you might win lots or you might win nothing.
Which would you rather?
Any Monk fans in the house?
Have you been thinking for years now how that present was probably important?
Any interesting stories?
I'm debating with my boyfriend.
Edit: I'm a masseuse. He's arguing it's sexual. All because I said I prefer to massaged by an attractive young dood.
Do you like it? Do you think it's staged?
I didn't know season 6 already started so I'm catching up. I still love it.
She said my face (I broke out really badly) looked so bad that I must be under a lot of stress.
Was being too sensitive when I was totally mortified/semi hurt by her saying that?
Would you say that to your friend?
I noticed her looking ALL day. Ugh.
2. What do you think of Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (also with Link) for the DS?
3. Was that a bad pun?
ITS FUCKING COLD
Where's a Tauntaun when you need one?
looooll a Tauntaun. 20 is nothing. except that i gotta walk like 10-15 minutes in this ffff.
I want pajamas just like Max's wolf costume from Where the Wild Things Are, but apparently they only make them for toddler boys. :\
My boyfriend and I are going to Lake Tahoe next week to do Christmas-lite with his family. Tahoe is a four hour drive (which I would be driving) from where we live, BUT it's snowing and I've never driven in the snow before. Should we just spring and fly there? The tickets are $80/person each way.
If you dk/dc, what is your favourite thing about the holidays?
You need a soda now, you have to options, which one do you go for?
What's the best handmade present you've ever received? The worst?
Has your car ever slid off the road because of weather conditions?
It snows all the time from December to April here and I'm always out driving in it.
Last night my car slid off the road. I was only going 10 mph at the time so it didn't slide very far, but it really pissed me off. I was being careful and it still went all sideways on me.
What are some good tips to relieve congestion? What do you do when your nose is congested?
dk/dc: Where is the weirdest place you've had sex?
If there isn't a list, what situations can you think of? I can think of Peter Pan, The Little Mermaid, Lady and the Tramp, Aladdin, 101 Dalmatians, Hercules, Alice in Wonderland, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast. I am sure there are more. Maybe I just have more time on my hands than most people. Haha.

This is shitty, y/y? Especially since it is less than a month until Christmas?
I'm debating what to do. They told me I could go to another property, which would be a 30 minute commute each way. I get paid $7.50 an hour. I'm thinking of telling them I'd do it for $8.50, but can't afford to drive that far for less. Basically, I'd break even on gas money each week with the extra dollar an hour.
Should I find another job? I work at a motel's front desk. It allows me to do a ton of homework and studying. It is basically a work study job, and its five minutes from my home. My friend works at another hotel nearby, and could get me a job, but the hours would be less steady and it would be a lot more work and less study time while I'm there.
I should steal pens and highlighters before this place closes, right?
Blaaaaaaah this sucks.
can anyone confirm that it is a good choice? or maybe point me in the direction of another one in that price range (or lower)?
also, it we would be hooking it up to our HD tv, does it come with the proper cords and things?
oh, and can anyone explain to me how the Netflix connectivity works? we've got Netflix, so i'm just wondering if i turn it on if it'll just show up and be easy or if i have to do something to get it working.
What do you know about feminism?
What do you know about antifeminism?
If you don't care, what do want to brag about?
What strategies do you use to stretch a paper past its minimum page limit?
Is there a particularly iconic scene from one of the original movies that I could recreate in cake form?
What mouthwash is the mildest but still effective? and also doesn't taste nasty.
How should I heat up my steak?
I can't imagine putting this thing in the microwave. Any specific details on the best way to heat this up would be wonderful as well!
Other than that:
How do you like your steak?
(so veggies can participate) What's your favorite kind of bean?
How do I approach this? I only have about 2 visits left, at the last one should I give her my email and ask her to add me on Facebook so she has the choice? Would that be easiest? How would you ask her?
I'm just really getting tired of my friends who are stuck up their boyfriends ass and the only thing we do have in common with is we like to drink sometimes. I need mom/adult friends.
If you don't care, Whats the most awkward appointments for you...? Mine would be my Gyno appointments because no one really likes getting a duck looking thing shoved in there vagina when its -15 degrees. If not that, my ortho because they always try to have a conversation with me when their hands are in my mouth. My orthodontist is always drunk and I have to stare at the snot dripping from his nose praying it doesn't land in my mouth while trying not to think about his terrible coffee breath.
