what did you think of it?
if you haven't, what is the last poem/poet you remember reading?
The one in NY(SoHo) looks like a dark wood beach house. All the lights are dimmed.
There are half naked buff guys walking around or posing in the corner. Some with winter scarves & hats on.
And there are girls in bikini's walking around, too.
And the clothes are in little rooms.
&also the perfume counter is shaped like a bar.
I had to stop my mom from putting dollars in one of the employee's beach shorts.
&there are windows that are really LCD screens showing ocean waves.
If you don't care, how many college credits do you have?
What sort of things do you do that make mundane things seem special?
I just poured myself a glass of Diet Coke in a pretty wine glass.
Who is your favorite typecast actor?
Michael Cera. Although his obnoxious "I'm awkward" roles are KINDA starting to get annoying.
Will you show me your facebook default photo?
How recent is that photo?
Which is worse?
I took an Ambien almost four hours ago.
Why am I still awake?
We've been collecting them for a few days now and I have a huge stack. I'd like to send them to the troops, but I noticed they say 'only valid when call is made from in the US'.
So, sending them overseas is out, but I'd still like to send them to the stateside military hospitals and bases, but I'm having a hard time finding a place to send them to. All the sites for calling cards for troops want me to buy a sponsored one.
Does anyone know of somewhere to send them?
Have you ever sent anything to the troops?
DK/DC: What's your favourite Monty Python sketch and/or movie?
ETA: I just counted the phone cards I have in front of me, and there's 859 20-minute phone cards. That's 17180 minutes! Over 286 hours, and we've only been collecting them for three days.
How do I get mrs. H to "deliver" more often?
Please to be ignoring the fact that I am in Afghanistan and she is not.
Mine: Somewhere between working class and lower middle class according to the Thompson and Hickey (2005) model, but once I finish my library science degree and earn my literature or history master's, it'll be higher (I hope). Even though I have my bachelor's degree, I'm still pretty broke because I'm taking classes and my new job is part time and doesn't pay as much (but that's good because I need the library experience).
 Would you mind including your country as socioeconomic class varies by country?
Grocery store? wine store? all-night convience store?
what do you normally buy and how much is TOO MUCH for a bottle?
When you fart, what is usual for you - loud and stinky, loud and not stinky, silent and stinky (ak SBD) or silent and not stinky?
For those of you who celebrate christmas, what do you usually get as "stocking stuffers?" My mom usually does toiletries and cosmetics - shampoo, conditioner, mascara, moisturizer, etc. And a toothbrush. And always AA batteries, for some reason, even if nobody got anything that required AA batteries. IDGI.
Also, how many/whose phone numbers do you know off the top of your head? Meaning that you don't have to go through your phone's contacts every time you want to call them, you can dial their number. I know my mom's, brother's, sister's, bf's, bff's, and several friends from elementary school that I haven't spoken to in years. IDK why.
reply with your googlemail address and i'll send one :)
The dentist mentioned Advil, the assistant said Ibuprofen, and my mom thinks Motrin would be better.
What do you think I should take?
Have you ever been stuck at TVtropes?
Are you immune?
What is the longest you've been stuck there when you only thought you were going to "look at one thing"?
Do you have a favorite trope? (links please!! Muahahaaa)

2)What's your favorite kind of bean and how do you like to eat it?
AGEDASHI TOFU, Stellan Skarsgard, gently yet erotically
*I guess you could also be an entree or a dessert
Is the garbage collection in you area done by the city, a private company? If there is no trash collection where you live, how do you dispose of your garbage?
Does your community have curbside recycling? If so, what materials will they take and do you have to separate them? How conscientious are you about recycling?
Do you compost your organic waste? If so, do you use a store-bought composter, just dump the stuff in a heap that you aerate every so often or something else?
I realized if you had to place me I would be almost lower class, but just shyly in working class. (Some college, Cosmetology degree, only made around $16,000 last year, have my own car.)
My husband is basically upper class or just shy of it.
I realized my Father would be consider Lower class (musician, no college) but my step mother would be Upper Middle class. (Computer programmer and some other stuff, lots of college).
My mother and step father were both upper middle class by income but had manual labor jobs. They met at work.
So in your relationships or in your families relationships do you see many people get together from different classes or do you feel people tend to be directed at there own "class" as far as attraction? I always figured people would lean more towards their social class, but my family proves me wrong.
There is a family of cats that is living under an old house across from my place. There are 2 kittens (5-8 weeks) and what appears to be the mommy cat. My GF and I have been putting out food for them and were contemplating trying to catch the kittens and keep them as pets. Our rational is the following: They are cute, we do not want them to be separated, and they have a high risk of being nabbed by animal control if they stay living in a for-sale property and new owners take over. We are having some doubts about separating them from their mother. What would you do???
When is the last time you picked your nose?
When is the last time you had an orgasm? Who/what gave it to you? When do you plan on having another?
Edit: Hah okay well there's overwhelming agreement! I hadn't heard of Masterquest before so I was curious if it was worth getting instead, but I shall go with the Collector's Edition. Thanks!
Another question then - do you get gifts for a professor/boss when they write you a letter of recommendation (like for a program)? If you do, what sort of gift is appropriate?
Is it going to be a White Christmas where you are, do you think?
What is one main thing you want for Christmas this year?
If you don't celebrate Christmas, what's one main thing you want for your next birthday?
Anyone? I know this doesn't make much sense...but thank you all for trying to help!
What's for breakfast?
I told my boyfriend and he said he had received the same text from a similar number a few days earlier, and had heard from a few other people that they've received something along those lines, too.
What's the deal with that? I didn't text back and just deleted it. Is there some sort of scam going on or are the people in Northern Alberta just losing it? For the record, I don't know anyone in Alberta.
What season do you start watching?
Will you post your birthday and then see if someone in TQC has the same birthday as you?
Mine is Dec. 31.
edit: Also, today is my four year olds birthday so if its anyones birthday today, you share that with him.
You have a brand new coupon organizer that someone got you for Christmas. What categories do you sort the coupons into?
For those who don't use coupons...
TP -- Over or under and why?
Edit: I mean if your birthday is a day or two before Christmas, not a couple weeks before.
Do you wish your birthday wasn't so close to the holiday, or do you not care?
CLEARLY I WORDED THIS POORLY AND EVERYONE THINKS I'M A SELF CENTERED ASS
How do I be a good wing-woman and help my friend gain confidence and look good?
( Collapse )
2)How many game systems is too many?
3)What's the oddest thing you've found on the net today?
Rifle shells for jewelry making.
Do you like Wife Swap?
It's my favorite reality show.
Do you take sides with one family over the other?
Almost always (except this episode - Balloon Boy's family is batshit for obvious reasons, and the other family is too cautious to exist)
Would you go on Wife Swap?
If I had kids, fuck yes.
What was your favorite episode?
I liked the burlesque dancer vs. lumberjack episode omg.
If you don't watch Wife Swap, what is your favorite reality show?
What's your day looking like today?
What other snacks (specifically non-dessert ones) can I bring that will keep without having to be in a cooler or refrigerator? So far, the one thing on my list is buffalo chex mix. Help!! Recipes welcome.
Or has anyone ever made these slippers?
Also, I've got the sneezes. I'm positive it has more to do with chilliness than allergies--or I'm getting sick--but either way, I work today and I'd rather not be sneezing all over the customers (and I'm sure they'd rather I not, as well). Quick fixes, TQC?
(We are assuming you did not buy it, but somehow won it/received it as a gift. It is brand new. This is a hypothetical question and is in no way intended to be a question seeking advice.)
I would like to bring an appetizer to my floor's holiday luncheon, I think, and here is what is already being brought:
1 Spinach dip and chili or dill dip
2 Herbed Cheese Twists
4 cheese & crackers
5 Spinach dip
What would be a good appetizer to bring that would be different enough from the others to add something to the party but still go with a Holiday luncheon theme? I am a decent cook but I don't have a ton of time to spend on it.
What makes a good kiss good and a bad kiss bad?
Do ever make out with strangers or one night stands or is it a SO thing only?
Do you like kissing? Why or why not?
What makes certain posters stand out more then others? Why do people seem to remember me when I really don't post that often? Does this happen to everyone or am I ~special~ and extra-annoying? (And self-centered.)
The idea of (finally) selling s piece of my art is kind of exciting and would be a big step. However, the friend in question is a very generous co-worker who is always bringing in handmade baked goods to work and has thrown a couple work parties at which she undoubtedly spent a lot of time/effort/money preparing food. I would, therefore, feel kind of cheap asking for money for my art.
What would you do? And if I were to ask for money, what would be a reasonable price? It was a 3-layer screen print in a generic wood frame, approx 12x15". The frame itself was only about $10.
I'm going to need some shit to do. Suggestions?
I figure I should read a book. I'm dyslexic and don't like hard to get into or wordy books, so I don't read books very often so I don't know what I really like. I like James Frey and John Irving, I guess. I don't like Young Adult novels and I don't like classic Russian literature either, so something in between would be nice. Basically what books should I read? What books do you like to read? Will you help me overcome my fear of reading?
What's the last thing you made?
Do you inwardly judge adults who say they hate vegetables?
Will you tell me about a cool animal I may not have heard of?
EDIT: What's your favorite Christmas song that most people haven't heard?
So, my question: where can I go tonight to get reasonably affordable, possibly name-brand tennis shoes that will hold up to a lot of walking and last a while? (I'm in Georgia/USA, if that matters at all).
what else should i make, tqc?
She's tiny, and slinky and sleek. She's never kept her collar on for more than a day and a half. My next steps are duct tape and/or superglue!
Suggestions? Better collar styles?
Offers to hold the cat while I duct tape?
What is your favorite type and brand of liquor?
-I like Jack Daniel's.
Do you like girls, boys, or both?
How tall are you?
2)Have you ever prank texted anyone? What did you say?
Serious, extensive answers only.
I have a question on behalf of my granddad. He wants to buy a Christmas present for my 13 year old brother, but between the two of us we've run out of ideas. We've so far suggested a netbook and a DSLR but he's said no to both. It can be fairly expensive, but preferably not a games console (since he already has a PSP, a Wii and a PS3) and can't be sports equipment (he can't play because of a heart condition.)
Any ideas or suggestions?
EDIT: Okay fine, apparently it isn't afternoon for anyone except me :(
I really really really really want to learn to play the ocarina, but I don't have one. :( I do, however, have a WHOLE bunch of recorders (like 7--my mom used to play and I have all of hers now) so I feel like I should learn to play those instead, you know? BUT OMG OCARINA!
Also, I have a related, dumb question: HOW IS OCARINA PRONOUNCED? I always pronounce it oh-karina in my head, but I've heard some people pronounce it ah-karina. Have I been saying it wrong in my head? :(
Is something suggestive a bad idea in a town full of pervy old men?
ETA: How long will lasagne keep in the fridge?
(a party in which healthy children are invited to hang out with a child who has chicken pox so that they will catch it)
Job #2 - Hotel/Front Desk, probably higher rate per hour (possibly starting at $8.24, but maybe up to $8.49) and will be getting a slight cost of living increase in January, as well as a raise after 90 days. Possibility of some tips as well, as I'd get to drive a van to the airport. Would have to work 30 hr weeks (maybe even 32 hrs) to get healthcare after 90 days, which I don't think I can handle with my class schedule next semester.
Both jobs seem to have really nice managers, I know at least one employee at each place, and now I'm torn.
Both jobs are a significant wage increase (at least in my mind) over my $7.50/hr I'm making now, but my current job allows for a lot of study time, which neither of these will have. I'm living at home until I finish my degree, don't have many expenses ($50/mo for car insurance, $10/mo phone, about $50/mo for co-pays for my doctors visits and medicine).
Which job would you take, TQC?
Why is it that when you have no job and you're looking for one, you can't find one for ages, but then when you have one you get more offers? :( This would have been so much easier if I hadn't gotten one of them.
I don't think we are, just staying in and watching Christmas telly.
Also, does anyone watch the Queen's speech? It's something I like to watch if I can.
I kissed Peter Gabriel.
Also, how much are you spending on gifts this holiday season?
Do you think that a Didgeridoo is in the song "Sandstorm"?
( Collapse )
Me: "Get the fuck out and take your fail with you!"
I called the wrong number by accident this morning and the person I called didn't pick up, but they called me back a few minutes ago demanding to know who I was and why I called them. I would've just ignored it, assuming they would have left a message if it were important.
do you like it?
do you have any advice for aspiring bartenders?
If you're not a bartender...
do you like alcohol? if yes, what is your favorite thing to drink? if no, why not?
L is visiting M in M's city right now. M is going to L's city for new year's
L is having a NYE party. a guy that L hooks up with once every few weeks will be there. L informs M that, on new year's eve, M will be sleeping on the couch* because L wants to have sex with the guy.
M thinks this is rude because she is an overseas guest, while L thinks it's not that big of a deal because it's only one night.
what do you think of the situation, oh denizens of tqc?
*M would be sleeping in L's bed oterwise
SHOULD I WATCH A:
CHEESY HORROR MOVIE
CHEESY SCI-FI MOVIE
CHEESY COMEDY MOVIE
HELP ME TQC, YOU'RE MY ONLY HOPE!!!
What essay are you currently working on, TQC-ers? Or what's next on your essay list?
How old are you?
If you don't have one, what made you decide to not get one?
I ask this because I have some friends who think I'm weird for not driving nor having any interest in getting my license. It bothers me when people constantly point out that I should be driving.
Validation! Do you like pepperoni?
What's your favourite pizza topping?
If I had to pick one topping, mushrooms. I have two favourite pizzas though. Veggie, no bell peppers, but with banana peppers, or Hawaiian (canadian bacon is the only meat I'll eat on pizza and only with pineapple).
What's your favourite pizza place?
A locally owned pizza place called Papa's Pub makes the best pizza ever. There's also a locally owned place called Pizza Warehouse. It's a buffet style but they have odd pizzas, like baked potato with bacon and sour cream, and taco pizza.
The one where Porkchop tries to save that rich chick and everyone thinks he attacked her.
I wanna watch it!
DK/DC- What was your favorite nickelodeon christmas special?
basically, I'm looking for songs that have talking instead of singing, and tell a story.
2. What's your favorite Starbucks order?
3. How do you stay organized?
4. What's your New Year's Resolution?
Stock / cream / herbs etc.
Assume an otherwise averagely stocked kitchen... how would you cook dinner with these ingredients?
It's of the part where she says "I like chasing cars!" and I have seen it several times, but I never saved it ughghghghhh.
Will you post embeds or links to the funniest videos you can remember?
I just won this =D
What about having your period?
I saw it with my SO last night. We agreed it was a bad "date" movie but we both liked it a lot.
Do you like pickles?
What about accordions?
How do you like your kortoshka, baked or mashed?
Vodka? Would you like some bread with that? What about some kalbaska?
Around here, I feel like the only thing to do is go out to eat or go to the movies. I really want to go on a date but there's nothing to do! Ideas, TQC?
Unrelated, are you eating anything?
Yep. chocolate, peanut butter crackers, and fruit punch. healthy!
Lindsay Mon, Dec 14, 2009 at 1:39 PM
Being on call for that week is not going to work for me. I was asked
six weeks ago to sub for all four days that week. I was depending on
the income for working the entire week, as requested. I had decided
against going home to visit my family during the holidays because
traveling after the 24th is prohibitively expensive and I could have
used the money. If I had known that I would only be needed for one or
two days that week, I would have said no altogether. To find out that
I will be missing out on this income is very inconvenient and
unacceptable to me. Knowing that I will not be working the entire
week, I have decided to take that entire week off. If you still need
me, I will come in tomorrow, but otherwise I will be unavailable.
Liliana Mon, Dec 14, 2009 at 2:08 PM
Lindsay, Part of being a substitute teacher at our school is being flexible.
We will contact you if needed at our earliest convenience.
Lindsay Mon, Dec 14, 2009 at 2:28 PM
In that case, I will resign as substitute, effective immediately. I
cannot wait for you to decide if you need me or not with such little
notice, once scheduled.
I still have not received my check for the last pay period. I
understand that I need to sign the time sheet. Can this be mailed or
faxed to me?
Since when did being flexible become synonymous with being a doormat?
I'm a latin american living in Germany. I hadnt had problems with the weather until last winter (I've been in Germany 5 years already). It seems to be making me very tired and demotivated. I dont really feel like going to class and writing essays. I wish I could stay home all winter. I've also had 3 flus this winter already.
Do you have any winter surviving tips?
How do I get myself to university with enough motivation?
I dont want to feel so tired all the time =(
There are the poles right... with elastic, so they snap into a straight line. How do they make an arc? I don't get it.
Why do people even go camping?
Can you tell me of a camping experience you have had?

Do you know of any paint that is awesome and cheap?
Where can I buy wall stencils for cheap? How does someone do these?

Where did you get them?
How often do you shower, and how long?
What's better, a shower when you go out of bed, or a shower just before you're going to sleep?
i can PICTURE him, but i can't for the life of me picture what he's from or remember his name.
i want to say andy..or adam...something, but again: migraine.
can you keep my head from exploding and figure out who i'm thinking of?
would it help if i said that i lovie lovie you?
not brody, samberg, sandler, or lamberg, and i have no idea who adam beach is.
okay, this could either help or totally lose you guys:
the way i'm picturing him, he kinda looks like if you were to take andy (not adam) samberg and adrian brody and smoosh them together.
edit upon edit:
none of these guys are the one picturing, but on the plus side, it's turned into a hot guy post!
you guys are awesome.
another edit!? yup.
i cannot call to mind who i'm picturing at all, however i've remembered the name of a short story that had been bugging me off and on for years, found a pair of missing socks, and found a place to buy new gloves.
i think i'll try to sleep now, but when i wake up at 3am because it finally dawned on me, you guys will be the first to know. <3
do you like/agree with the way they have been portrayed in the movies?

I would also like to get her something a little bit sentimental - you know like those boxes you can put the baby's first tooth and lock of hair in? Or a nice photo frame or something. I don't know.
Parents of TQC, what was your favourite gift someone got you when your babies were born? Or what do you wish they'd got you? She's already got everything she needs for the baby.
If you were born a man but had gender reassignemnt surgery and are living as a woman and you like women, does that make you gay or straight?
Serious/non serious answers.
It's almost midnight and I want to go to sleep soon. However, I'm jonesing for some ice cream. Should I give in or wait until tomorrow?
