Does "organic" mean anything to you? Do you seek out organic foods? Do you think organic is superior? Do you enjoy the idea of organic food? Do you like organic food? Is organic food for hippies?
Care to share disgusting TMI horror stories?

I need ideas, please?
Prepare a thesis or dissertation of sociological, demographic or economic content, based on the results of a study or survey.
I’ve decided that I’m going to switch everything to itunes, since that seems to be the mainstream digital music program.
But, I have a few questions:
1. Is there any way to convert WMA files to “itunes files” (I’m assuming mp3?) more quickly than one song at a time?
2. Also, I have songs on certain albums that are separated from their album on itunes because there are two artists on the song rather than one. How do I make itunes organize my music by album name rather than album artist?
EDIT O MATIC- If I served in the military but didn't see combat...am I still a Veteran? my self esteem rests on your answer

Tell me about it?

Trouble is, I already have a full time, steady job as a graphic designer, which has me traveling between Montreal and Toronto every couple of weeks. This makes both day and night courses pretty much impossible :\ I like my job too, and without it I'd have no money!
Should I quit my job and pursue voice?
A related question: I've just started trying to "get out there" and sing at weddings and the like. What is a good way to promote myself and get more jobs?

What is your relationship like with food? Do you eat healthy? Do you enjoy eating? Do you eat your feelings? Do you binge? If a diet ever worked for you, what was it? Are you as sad for my friend as I am, or do you think because he reached his skinny goal, it's ok?
(mind, this cat is somehow the perfect cat, and even gets along with her two Bichons like they grew up together, but the fact remains.)
On the same note, should I get this cat something for X-Mas, since I get the dogs something as well?
If so, any ideas?
Thing can be a feature/quality/belief/whatever
I am in the library right now, frantically (okay, maybe not so much) working on a paper due by 6:30PM tonight. I have 2/8 pages done. I asked my professor for an extension and his response was, "You won't get the paper back from me because I'll only be on campus for the final" (which is when I would hand it in to him).
Should I skip work, get the paper done and hand in a (mostly) half-assed paper or should I go to work, take the week to work on the paper and hand it in to him next week?
I would like to hand it in to him tonight because I think he might grade my paper more harshly if I hand it in next week but I would also like more time to nurse and baby it.
What do you think?
Do you think I should try to warn other people on the internet from purchasing with this company, because of the bad customer service, lying, and all the grief I sustained?
If so, how and where do I warn them? What website should I post on? Do I write out the whole story of how it happened, or keep it to a short paragraph?
Thanks a lot!!
Do you guys know of any good websites (besides ebay) that sell rare vinyl?
ETA: Also, when I used to reply to comments via my gmail account, a new tab would open with the comment thread I was replying to. For the past few days, when I reply, it's been taking me directly to the comment thread in the same tab. It's weirding me out and I can't seem to fix it. Does anyone know how to fix this? I haven't done anything differently, or changed my settings or anything.
Is this possible to do?
If it is which flash drive would be the best one to get?
Even if, if you break up it would be really awkward?
Or is that too cynical?
Ladies of TQC...want a pap smear for Christmas?
Do you know who the guy in the commercial is? He looks really familiar.
For my linguistics class I need to interview a speaker of another language. I picked German, but I'll take anything that isn't English at this point.
All I need is for someone to translate these phrases into another language in a conversational form, written out as if you were speaking, not necessarily what is grammatically correct in that language.

I realize most people are going to give me bullshit answer, but maaaaybe someone might help? At least if they're bullshit answers make them good.
The only problem is that she's apparently not coming to Texas. She was coming to Houston with Kanye West, but that was cancelled. So unless I'm missing something, the closest place that I could see her is in New Orleans, which is 370 miles away.
Should I go?!
Do you believe in astrology, and compatibility with another person based on your zodiac/star/sun/moon/elemental signs?
Do you believe nature or nurture has more to do with who a person becomes? Why?
Me personally, I have been with really skinny guys/girls. I have been with chunkier guys/girls. As far as my opinion sex has been good with both but the really skinny ones have always hurt more because of bones hitting in odd places. Chunkier people havent been as flexible though. :P I guess there is always pros/cons.
Also, I was watching a commercial and it was about this guy buying a bra for his girlfriend, he compared them to melons. (The commerical talks about apples, oranges, grapefruits, melons.) What are your boobs? I always thought I would be oranges (I guess missouri has big oranges) but discovering I wear a D that would make me more of a grapefruit or melon I guess?

Is it useful, hilarious or just really sad that some of us have thought logically/semi-serious to seriously about this?
Classic or new series?
Who is your favourite Doctor?
What do you think of the spin-offs (Torchwood, Sarah Jane Chronicles, K9 and Friends)?
I am a fan of the classic series, though I do enjoy the new.
Tom Baker is my favourite Doctor, and my favourite companions are Romana, Sarah Jane and Jamie. I think the best storyline I have seen (so far) is Genesis of the Daleks.
I love Torchwood, but I've never seen the Sarah Jane Chronicles.
You're at a restaurant table, alone, when a stranger slides into the seat across from you. "I'm a rich man and I just like to see what people would when it involves money. I'm going to give you $1,000", he says as he puts the money in front of you, and then pulls out a much larger stack. "Now, you can keep the 1k, or you can try and win this stack of $20,000. If you do the latter, you pick two numbers from 1-6 and I'll roll this dice. If your number comes up, the money's yours. If it doesn't, I take my $1,000 back and you get nothing. You can walk away now with your 1k or gamble for 20k. What do you do?"
I usually wear the same pants a few times a weeks and then I'll wear a shirt every two or three weeks minimum. Shoes and jackets I'll wear over and over again, though I usually don't..
Why do you think it is that there are more "liberal" people on livejournal (specifically TQC) than "conservative" people?
What are you good at?
Singing, cooking, clarinet, taking care of children.
Edit: Inspired by post below... for those of you who aren't American. What do you think of American accents?
I just found out my ex fiance just up and moved his stuff three states away to be with the girl who was my bestfriend my junior year of high school. They weren't really friends until after we split up but started talking seriously after we did. How awkward is this? I'm happy for them but it is still awkward for me for some reason. I guess the fact that they didnt even live in the same state and had only seen each other in person maybe a a couple of times is what makes it odd for me too. It doesnt help that at seperate times in my life they both conffessed their love for me. Oh well. We started dating on odd terms too, and before that when we were friends, I told him he should meet her because they would get along.
Anything like this ever happen to you? Or something weird with exs?
I guess it could be more odd if I had siblings and an ex dated them after me. Haha.
Love is funny.
I don't get how they work, could someone explain?
Do you think it's worth getting?
Since I have had my gmail account, I would be able to respond to comments sent to me by livejournal and when I was send it, it would open a new tab up, taking me to the thread.
For the past few days, whenever I reply, I am taken to the thread, but in the same tab as gmail, thus closing my email account.
I am a weirdo and always like to have my gmail open, no matter what, and this is really hindering that weird OCD thing.
Is this happening to anyone else? I haven't changed my settings on my browser or gmail, so idk what is going on here.
While Mary is at work, Molly occasionally enters the home without notice.
This is probably legal since Molly technically owns the place, right?
But do you think this is okay to do?
Best zombie movie?
What's your favorite cupcake flavor? I'll either be getting a green tea or a chai cupcake. Or both.
If you're against any of the above.. why?
Do you know anyone who approves of the policies NCLB promotes?
In my teaching class today we were talking about standardized tests like the MAP (which Missouri students have to take at the beginning and end of each year to assess how much they've ~*~improved~*~) and the whole situation struck me as completely ludicrous. Not the idea of assessment, but that the government makes huge decisions based on the results, without taking into consideration extraneous factors, such as average socioeconomic status of the area of the children being tested.
Also, Missouri at least is introducing a new test called Operational Assessments, which are much alike to MAP tests, except only for HS students. The students have to take the tests to graduate. Schools are expected to pass a certain amount of students at the "proficient" level, and that level increases each year. For example: 61% last year, 68% this year, 74% next year, and so on. Theoretically, by 2014, schools should pass 100% of students at a "proficient" rate. And if they fail to do so multiple times, the government comes in and takes over.
How whack is that?
If you do not care either way about public education, can you cut a bagel so it resembles two links of a chain? And if you try... can you post pictures?
I mean, I know that is a desperate thing to ask in the first place. But what's the coolest-sounding way of asking it?
To be specific, it's a guy that I had very regrettable sex with about two months ago, and since then has been sending me very weird mixed signals. He and his roommates sent out a Facebook invite for a Christmas party and invited a shitload of people, including 3 of my best friends, but not me. I know that's a very middle-school kind of thing to be upset about, but I just want to see if there's a reasonable explanation before I vow to just forget about this guy, so I want to just shoot him a text but I don't know how to do it in a not totally-scary-creeper way.
Would you like to be friendly and talk a little?
Failing that, what's your favorite protein and how is it prepared to your liking?
What cool web apps or sites have you found lately that you love?
Where did you here about them?
If so, where? What organisation did you go through?
First, gmail won't open links in a new tab.
Now, anytime I go to livejournal, it's giving me a 302 error message.
Does anyone know of any viruses or something that do this? I mean, I haven't clicked on anything besides TQC and ONTD, so idk what is going on
I went and bought the Extended Editions of the LotR movies, and I'm watching Fellowship of the Ring, and I could have sworn that there were scenes in here that are not showing up.
Like in the prologue, after Isildur took the ring after killing Sauron's body, I could have SWORE that there was a scene where one of the elves (I forgot his name, bad Nikki.) led him into the fires of Mount Doom to try and get him to destroy it, but Isildur was just like 'LOL NO.'
Am I crazy or is that in /another/ extended edition?

I live on the second floor of a garden apartment building, in which 4 apartments per floor share a stairwell/hallway.
Will you describe your relationship with your neighbors/the people who live in the same community as you?
We've never introduced ourselves to one another, I wouldn't recognize any of them if I passed them in the street or at a store. We're always friendly and polite to each other when we run into one another in the stairway, though.
Anyone have a tutorial or tips on this?
DK/DC: Did you watch SyFy's Alice? I'm watching it right now since I really liked Tin Man. I just started the first part.

If you don't really care about cats, what's your zodiac sign, and do you believe the norm for your sign applies to you at all? If so, how much?
Also, what should I make for dinner tonight? It's for two, and I have no idea.
It's a black baby with curly hair sitting in what looks like a car seat. She is eating an ice cream cone and is laughing, and then gets serious, and then starts laughing again.
Anyone know which one I'm talking about?
Also, post any funny gifs you have
Did any of you watch Coraline?
Do you think that the ending was not quite clear?
I think the fact that the garden looked like the witch and that the cat disappeared behind the sign could let you think that Coraline was still trapped in the other world.
I tried googling this but found nothing. Any links to interpretations would be useful. My boyfriend and I were kinda curious about if we were the only ones noticing this.
What tourist type things are there in Iowa and Wisconsin for weekend trips?
If you live or lived in any of those three states, do you like them or do you want to move to another state?
Does it sound like we got taken??
Which method do you think is better?
Do you have any gifts you always get in your stocking?
Any ideas on cheap, fun, and useful little gifts for coworkers?
One year my dad forgot to get Cracker Jacks, which was our previous tradition, and when he got to the store they were out. He substituted lottery tickets, and my then-4 year old brother won $100. We get them every year now :)
More specifically, I live in Winnipeg, and I'm trying my hardest to find one as a Christmas present. :( If you live here and you've seen them around, please let me know where!
Failing that, if you know a site where I can purchase it online, that would also be very helpful. (Even if shipping is bound to kill me.) Thanks!
I wanted to get the lava lamp so I ventured into my bedroom. From the hallway I can see my boyfriend playing solitaire. When I get close, my boyfriend minimizes it so I wouldn't be able to see that he was playing it.
Why did he do this? Does anybody else do that?
Also, we made quesadillas. Thanks guys :)
I'm kinda scared to post, I know where the edit button is now though, haha.
Anybody have any ideas?
if you don't, what do you use to make your house smell good?
1. If when the time comes, would you carry out your SO's wishes?
2. Would you help yourself to a few burgers yourself?
Who still even uses catalogs?
Edit: Apparently I ordered a bag that went out of stock very quickly on Thanksgiving and Victoria's Secret is sending out the $165 bag as a 'We're sorry' (even though I already got the other one?).
What kind of American film do you think you could compare it to?
What kind of camera do you own?
*ETA* Sorry guys I'm looking for the commercial in question right now I'm just having trouble finding it. Also, I'm not getting comments in my email :(
Help me compile a list (for myself, and anyone else who’s interested) of experience gifts?

 I've decided to order a steak and cheese sub and cheese fries. I wish they served poutine; I wonder what that tastes like?
Alternate question, how many hours do you sit a day?
(inspired by my friend and I seeing two tramps having gay sex in a shop doorway)
1. I almost called an ex boyfriend "my poop lil guy" and when I told him, he said "Well, I did just poop so that could work."
2. I just looked into the kitchen to see my dad playing air piano to the song from Charlie Brown.
3. My mom (Who is usually very quiet and reserved) screamed "MOTHERFUCKER" today from holding the cookie sheet too long.
im in the process of baking some cookies right now (the same ones that you can get from subway) for my kindergartens shared lunch tomorrow. i made a double batch so there is quite a lot of mixture. i only have two baking trays which i have used already and i cant put on a next batch until that lot has cooled and i can move them. obvs im too impatient for this so i just dumped the mixture in a glass dish and now im baking them like brownies.
do you think this was a dumb idea? will my 'brownies' turn out okay and actually pass as brownies?
....or will it just be a big lump of mess?
EDIT - my lump of cookie mess turned out wonderful :). although i haven't sliced it up yet, im sure its fine. yay!
Details are not necessary.
Can you come up with any?
So far, I have:
Shave 'Em Dry- Lucille Bogan
Please Warm My Weiner- Bo Carter
Duetto buffo di due gatti- attributed to Gioachino Rossini (not so much dirty as just a bunch of meowing)
First Of May- Jonathan Coulton
Let's Talk Dirty To The Animals- Gilda Radner
The husband and I switched to Verizon. 1st month, our bill was $200 because of activation fees, blah blah. 2nd month, it was $105. Last month, we doubled our minutes ($20 more) and added a 2nd line ($10 + ins, taxes, fees). Our bill is $268!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's with an 18% discount. ETA: We didn't go over our minutes. We had over 600 left.
WTF? We added another line last week, but it was free activation and we didn't change our plan. The details aren't available yet, so I have no idea why it more than doubled.
I'm seriously about to say fuck it and go to prepaid. The husband and I use maybe 300 minutes a month, combined.
If you have prepaid, what provider do you have?
I bought some really awful/sort of expensive shoes there tonight and I have a bad feeling I'm going to be stuck with them.
Assuming it's gone, do I just go to the bank and tell them I lost it? :\
What's your favorite kind of cereal?
Also, for those who do not want to answer- favourite Beatles song?
So, I ask you, do you watch soaps, any soaps? If so, which ones?
And do you know of anyone who watches soaps? Who are they?
2. What do you like to eat when you go to the movies?
Is it too early to go to bed?
Edit: I have Comcast, if that makes a difference.
Boyfriend wants to see Invictus this weekend, but I'm not sold yet.
what are some activities i could enjoy throughout the years to fill up my time that isn't spent working since i'm clearly going to be alone forever?
anyone want to join my pity party?
My mom got a letter today saying that they're dropping me in March, even though I'll only be turning 22 and don't graduate until June.
Or just any pictures of celebrities with red hair. That you like.
ALSO! Does anyone have the link to that video that seemingly never ends, with a bunch of short clips from all over including the "My spoon is too big" video?
Edit: Wearing them daily would be ridiculous, y/n?
Who do you think is more famous?
I don't just mean right now. Who will leave a bigger legacy? Who will the masses remember most?
Who is coolest or more talented is NOT the question! I'm asking who you think people (of all ages - your parents, your siblings, your kids) will remember most in 20-30 years and who will be forgotten. Not just a personal preference, but who you honestly believe has left the biggest impact on a generation.
Sorry to bother you with another question, but I bought a book on a whim a while ago, and I don't know if I'm going to read it ever. Should I sell it or keep it?
ETA: if other, specify in comments what I should do. Thanks!
Why aren't you a atheist?
Do you think believers are liars?
I've used a bunch, through Bonfire at Texas A&M (if any of you are Aggies, gig 'em and god bless). Some axes are good, some are not. Some let the head fly off into the freaking woods. Flying axe heads are BAD.
I want a wood-handled axe, that holds a good edge.
Fiberglass axe handles suck for the feel behind the strike. They last forever, but you take the impact instead of the handle. Handles are replaceable for a reason.
Double bit axes are fun, but I kinda like single-bit better, mostly for the curve in the handle.
Recommendations? And these 200-dollar axes with bright paint on the handles I've seen in Men's Journal and Outside are out of the question. It's a working tool... I'm just going to wrap the ass end of the handle in cotton athletic tape anyway.
so. Good axes, easy to find, wood handle, not outrageously expensive. Suggestions?
I really want to get one but I can't afford it right now.
If you don't have any tattoos, what's your favourite colour jelly bean?
would you be disappointed to get them in a gift exchange?
how about if it were a basket with half chocolate-peppermint cookies and half pumpkin-nut cookies?
if you were expected to participate in a gift exchange but had no money, what would you bring/make/give?
Would anyone be interested in joining such a comm if I were to just start one, if there isn't one already active?
Ex) Once a week, a plot is chosen, and the members of the comm all write a story with the same basic, vague plot and post them at the end of the week, resulting in a telephone-game-esque rainbow of stories which really have nothing to do with each other at all.
This is specifically what I'm looking for, and I could've SWORN I saw one on LJ forever ago, but never got around to joining. Again, couldn't find anything with the interest search, but I didn't go back further than things that had been inactive for more than a few months. If it's dead, it doesn't really do me any good. :/
Thanks in advance.
ETA: plot_a_week. WHAT AWESOME THINGS WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE HERE?
