What's your favorite Christmas movie? Song? Post it!
How did you get rid of it?
Any tips for reducing pimples when they develop?
Also, any tips on how to break the habit of squeezing everything that pops up on my face?
My skin has been so bad lately and it's depressing me because I feel like that's what people are seeing instead of me. I do plan on going to a dermatologist hopefully soon. I've had acne since I was 12 and I'm just at my wit's end.
Post happy gifs so I can stop being overly upset over this?
Last dilemma? How did you successfully deal with/solve it?
Do you think computer spell check programs will ever add 'googling' to the list of correct words?
I has a job!! and I shower!!!
If you don't remember/don't care, what's your favorite funny gif?
I'm talking about receiving it when it becomes available to you.
I pretty much can't take it anymore. I was just sitting outside smoking a cigarette in a tank top and my underwear and that bastard walked into my fenced, gated yard with his bird and an electrician. He looked at me and kept trying to work with his electrician. I'm a 19 year old girl! Not to mention his fucking obnoxious bird that I have to listen to every morning.
What would YOU do?
He decided he wanted to break the world record for throwing the shotput farther than anyone else his age. However, he is left handed and his pacemaker is on the left side, so the doctor didn't like that idea. He either needs to become more ambidextrous (doctor approved throwing it right-handed), or come up with a new idea.
He suggested skydiving, but the doctor nixed that, too.
What world record should my grandfather attempt to break?
Okay, since it's about time to start getting reeeeeally sick of Christmas music, will you tell me what kind of NON-Christmas music you like to listen to around the holidays, which nevertheless evokes feelings of nostalgia/warmth (or just reminds you that yes, there is still good music out there, even if they're not playing it on the radio)?
If you want to get fancy, will you type out a playlist?
Some of my playlist:
I Put a Spell On You - Nina Simone
Stella Blue - the Grateful Dead
Noita - Kuusumun Profeetta
Wigwam - Bob Dylan
Mood Indigo - Duke Ellington
Instant Karma - John Lennon
These Days - Nico
Blue in Green - Miles Davis
My Man - Billie Holiday
Train Round the Bend - Velvet Underground
Busted Bicycle - Leo Kottke
Needle in the Hay - Elliot Smith
All Tomorrow's Parties - Velvet Underground
(The full playlist is much heavier on VU than anything else.)
How did you do on your finals/final papers, do you think?
*I don't even want to talk about it :\
How's the weather over there?
*22 degrees, feels like 6. WSW winds at 24 mph. Thanks www.weather.com.
Around 12. Yep, these two sisters who are my age (20). They just never started shaving their legs. They're both blonde, and very ~athletic, so they wear shorts and runners in the summer, and you can see fine blond hair all over the place.
EDIT: What type of feel would the book have?

Do you shop in thrift stores?
If yes, which of the following items would you/have you purchase(d)?
Do you go to garage sales?
What's the best used item you have ever purchased?
What is the worst used item you have ever purchased?
Thanks for saving my ass, guys.
When was the last time you couldn't remember something really simple/that you should know?
Does your office do an official holiday gift, paid for by the office? What kind of gifts?
If not, feel free to tell me about your gift exchange system. Or about how much better my job is than yours.
My work just fired one manager, another manager put in her notice, and my coworker (assistant manager) is quitting, unbeknownst to the company, in three weeks. The owner is aware that I've been doing the manager's job for quite some time, since she inadvertently discovered my signature on all the paperwork. No employee evaluations ever take place, it's a matter of asking for a moment of her time and stating your case as tactfully as possible to get what you want. I was promoted to assistant manager without a raise, and I'm being promoted to full-time manager starting Monday according to the sticky-note left on my locker.
And what foods do you get cravings for when the munchies hit you?
To those of you who don't/have never tried it, are you excited for anything tonight?
Did you need a course in your state's history, or was a bit of information just added in to the US history course?
Texas History is required here, separate course. I don't really know about other states' foundings (besides the original colonies), so I'm wondering if other states have enough of their own history to take it to another course. I mean, Texas history focused a lot on times when Spain and Mexico were in control, little content recently. Maybe some states like California would focus on more recent times? I don't know; I'm curious. Tell me about your state's history?
ETA: (Do your feelings change if this person is your boss - so they have some power over your job status?)
I always feel like I really must be doing something wrong even if I KNOW that I'm not. It's the weirdest feeling.
yes x4 for me.
recently i've had a tooth that's been hurting, but my dentist said there was nothing wrong except a little gingivitis. the gum near it is inflamed and now the inner gum line near my top teeth is sore. i can't remember if i burned my mouth on anything, and i really don't feel like going back to the dentist. could gingivitis cause gums to sting?
What should I say to her in the nicest way possible to get her off my back?
What is a horror story you've had with a coworker recently?
Can you point me somwhere on line where I can take a jpeg or whatever picture, and it will make it so that the picture will print out on several different pages that can be put together to make a poster sized image?
You have to have sex with a mermaid/merman. Which scenario would you prefer? The human side of this creature is very attractive
Same question, except now it's a centaur (half human, half horse)
If you don't know (or even if you do), what do you think are the most updated LJ communities? I would think this one and ONTD.
So for Christmas I'm getting him a gift that I'm going to have engraved.
I'm trying to find lyrics (short) that would apply in the context of basically saying thanks for being the greatest dad of all time.
I was originally trying to find Beatles lyrics because my dad loves them, but I couldn't really find anything that made sense. Anything I Googled were all father/daughter wedding songs that didn't seem right or songs about dad's loving their daughters. But I wanted something more daughter to dad.
Anyone know of anything? It's so tough. I don't just want "#1 Dad!" that's stupid.
I'm leaning towards Romulan or Andorian, personally.
I bought a pair of Doc Martens for $50.
What are you up to this weekend?
I'm going to finish my last paper and clean my room eventually.
I also have a work Christmas party tonight.
I should not go because it would be gross and unsanitary to touch communal food when I keep scratching my face, right? RIGHT? I don't want to go but it's kind of a big deal and I want a legit excuse. And also because it looks like I have small boulders all over my cheeks and chin. :'(
What jokes should I teach my four year old?
However, i have no "dressy" clothes.. at all. and I am completely broke, so buying something new is not an option. I have some nice shirts, but all I own are jeans. Would it be really bad to wear jeans to the courthouse on Monday?
Have any of you ever had jury duty? How'd that go for you? Should I be dreading this?
So, who wants to let me and my husband stay with them?
When was the last time a surprise was ruined for you? My boyfriend was so upset that I found the crate.
What should I name my new puppy?!! We already have a fawn pug named Jerry. We named him Jerry because his step-dads pug is named Newman. We would like to stick with the Seinfeld theme, but it's not necessary.
ETA: I'm getting a boy pug. :)
Long version: A couple months ago I accepted a job as a substitute teacher. When I signed the offer of employment letter, it did say that there is no guarantee as to the number of hours. I will concede that. However, in the past couple weeks, there have been multiple instances of them calling me up to sub in advance, and then cancelling on me a day or or two before. This has made me miss three days of work. When they call me to sub, I keep those days free because I've made a commitment to work for them. When they give me very late notice that I won't be needed, and therefore I won't be paid, that screws me over.
The most egregious case of this is that in late October, I was asked if I could work December 21-24. I said yes, with the understanding that I would not be able to make plans to go on vacation during that time or the week before New Years. When I emailed the woman yesterday to ask which classroom I would be in, she said that she's not sure if she would need me during that week after all, since the numbers would possibly be low and they could shuffle teachers around. Why they hadn't come to the conclusion a month and a half ago when they had asked me to sub is beyond me, but this leaves me in a bind. I was told to call as it gets closer to then to confirm.
To me this is absolutely unacceptable. If they want me to be available like this, they should be paying me a retainer fee or something. I'm not going to sit around for another week or so while they can figure out whether or not they need me. I really don't think that this job will work out anymore. I just feel as if they have no respect for my time, and they treat their staff semi-poorly anyway.
So TQC, help me run my life. What do you think would be the best thing to say to them?
Should I call the Jimmy Johns or or do something about the fact that I accidentally undertipped the delivery guy??
Sidenote- the jj's is only about 2 blocks from my house.
If you don't care, what are your fave food items to have delivered to your house?
also, how do you fill your days without family, friends or a job? I'm getting pretty down on myself sitting here all day :(
( Collapse )
Why would he do this? Can anyone think of any good reasons?
I cant think of why he would need/want this info for a poker party at his house unless it was for theft or something.
what was the last thing you baked?
What are you doing tonight?
What political party are you affiliated with?
What is your gender?
Do you think being left or right handed has any influence on a person's personality?
Do you have one dominate hand/leg or does it depend on what you're doing?
The title he wrote on the board was "小恋歌", which means "Small Love Song", and the song is originally sung by a man. Anyone know what song this might be?
My husband's parents are shopping for a car. Preferably used, but new is not out of the question yet. They are looking for the following:
Not a Ford
2006 or newer
50,000 miles or less
16,000 USD or less
Based on this criteria, what brand/type of car would you recommend? Past experience with a certain car (good and bad) is most welcome. :)
If you don't care, what's your favorite smell?
Mine is freshly baked bread.
To my knowledge, satire is supposed to be something that shows the folly/vice of society and accords it scorn.
Can someone explain how this works with Glee?
If you don't watch Glee, what's your favorite brownie recipe?
What's the last thing you lost on bidding on ebay?
The PERFECT gift for my boyfriend, ugh.
It seems to me like all the musical/intellectual/artistic geniuses lived and died in past centuries.
Tell me about a rendezvous you had with an asshole this week.
Catch: they must have been born at least 100 years ago.
So for Christmas I'm trying to write out a list of all the foods our family eats on a regular basis, just ordinary stuff, even things like 'toasted sandwiches'. I won't bother to write out the recipe for them, but I'll put each on an index card. I'll then have other cards that say things like "Reheatable" and list all the foods that I've come up with that are reheatable. I'll also include new, ordinary every day sorts of recipes (the whole thing). she can write the recipes on the others if she wants but she's memorised them so it doesn't really matter.
Is this a good idea?
What's your favourite 'ordinary' recipe that you could share, that my mother might like? Doesn't have to be for a total slack night, but just, you know... every day, home cooking. (including desserts, snacks, or lunches if you want!)
What was it about?
Would you call?
Ever do anything similar?
Did any of the predictions come true?
If no, why not?
If yes, what kind? (Cow (percentage?), goat, soy, almond, (...breast? O_o) etc..)
Personally, yes, cow's milk, 1% all my life (skim is like water, 2% is too thick, to me,) because some things just need milk. Usually if there's thick fudgy chocolate or peanut butter involved. Or in this instance, a giant cinnamon bun. (I'll drink milk if I'm eating something hugely spicy, like a hot curry, usually.)
Someone has given you a Christmas present 2 weeks before Christmas. Which do you do?
They did not say "Wait until Christmas" but they also didn't say "You can open it now!". I AM CONFLICTED. I say you wait until Christmas morning but my bff says OPEN IT NOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??
Which of these would you rather have?
ETA: Just noticed I spelled indigestion wrong. My bad :\
I adore Conan O'Brien.
What is your favorite Holiday movie?
Do you scream at scary movies?
I squeal like a girlish piglet. My gfs laugh at me :[
I just painted my nails this red color. I have white and black Art Deco nail art things. What design/pattern should I draw on them, if anything? Keep in mind I'm only decent at drawing straight lines with them so far lol.
What class, race, and level are you?
What is your favorite RPG(s)?
why is it so cold outside?
This is mine. I thought I wanted an adult one, but then I saw this one and couldn't resist.
Non-Jews, do you use any Yiddish phrases?
Edited for larger picture.
