I made the mistake of letting my kid play with it 5 days ago and she hid it on me... apparently very well.

1a) what other game should i customize?
2a) for the Guess Who? game, should i use pictures of our friends, or pictures of celebrities? or both?
b) if you don't care, what are some things you're making for holiday presents this year, as opposed to buying?
For everyone else: are all redheads gingers, or only some of them?
what was your first moving out experience like?
What is the fastest you ever wrote a paper, how long, and did it reflect your best work?
I have a ten page paper due in 12 hours and I have about 2 pages done. I have no idea how this is going to go, I haven't written a paper in a while.

If you dk/dc, what are you doing tomorrow?
what was the______?
right now i'm too high for this shit.
2. will you smoke a bowl with me itt?
5 years ago, where did you want to be in life? Are you there now? What's the difference between what you envisioned and reality?
i was hoping not to have to do half.com or amazon.com, but is it worth it?
if you've used one of those sites where you sell them right to them, which ones are the best, etc?

If at 10pm last night I'd been up for 36 hours, and it's 2:40 am now, how long have I been up?
What's your favourite cure for insomnia?
How about migraines?
I use the mood on lj posts. I'm kinda annoyed at it though, because I rarely find myself out of the 'a's for my moods and that's a limited number of McShep icons :(
Which of the moods do you tend to use most often?
If you could care less what's your favorite comic villain and what kind of pudding do you think they like?
for instance, if you had been on several dates with somebody, gotten physically involved and things generally seem to be going well, at what point would it be a problem if they were also seeing somebody else?
How often to you worry about stuff like this?
What can you say to me to calm me down?
What did you have for breakfast today?
Would you rather take a medicine in liquid form that tastes really disgusting (and I mean REALLY disgusting, makes you want to gag gross), or take a large pill that's really difficult to swallow?
( Collapse )
Say you were getting cookies/goodies in the mail for Christmas. Which of these would you like? Regular cookies
Also, if you had about $5000 and had to get a new car, would you find something for that amount of money or use it on a down payment on a nicer car?
As you can tell by my thinly veiled hypothetical question, my poor car lost its life on Saturday after an elderly lady went through a stop sign. The car is still driveable but the cost to repair is greater than the cost of the car. The old lady only has a cracked front license plate bracket. FML. At least no one was hurt. My 2 year old was in the car and I am slightly ashamed to admit that I swore at an old lady. A lot.
How do you feel about what gift giving has become - in general?

Do you have a 'signature' dish or dessert?
Thanks for weighing in on my lingerie question (for my friend's bridal shower) yesterday. Due to your answers, I'm going to go for it and hope Grandma isn't in attendance.
Now, I need help picking something out.
If you were going to receive lingerie for your bridal shower (or birthday, or *insert special occasion here*), which would you prefer?
c) Other. Specify in comments.
Budget is $50. Gracias!
Somebody honked at me last night. I was waiting for a little boy and his grandpa (?) to finish crossing the street.
Do you think the internet contributes to and/or exacerbates phobias? I don't mean to make trypophobia or anything else seem contrived, I'm just thinking that groups and websites devoted to phobias and compulsions might encourage or foster those feelings in people for whom they weren't originally very strong.
Sorry if that doesn't make sense. Not functional yet today.
Any movies that you REALLY want to see but for some reason it's taking forever for it to be produced/written/greenlighted?
( Collapse )
Would it be crazy if someone decided to ride on all the lines from one end to the other (not during rush hour)?
What do you like about your metro/subway? What do you hate about it?
I think my google-fu is broken, because I can't find what I'm looking for. I work with kids who have autism and other developmental delays, and a number of the kiddos on my caseload are very interested in computers. I'm looking for some incredibly simple games (flash would be great), where essentially all you do is click an item, and something happens. Does anyone have any suggestions?
assuming you like their music, which of their songs do you most enjoy?
fader, a love lost and sweet disposition touches me the way VERY few songs do.
It's not even noon yet, and I'm ready to go back to sleep. Too bad I have another class and then an 8 hour work shift ahead of me.
What are your plans for the day?
Will you regale me of the last/worst time the family drama llama took a shit in your life?
Any patterns that you're totally bonkers over?
Finals week is teh suck.

Have you ever completely and totally failed a final?
Have you ever slept though a final?
Any spiffy holiday plans?
lame? smart? both? neither? something else?
(i vote lame)
Yeah...thanks but no thanks.
When's the last time you laughed in someone's face?
If Y, where do you live?
Is anything hurting right now? Tell Dr. TQC about it.
What is a good gift for someone who just a bought a home? This person happens to be my older brother but we're not that close and I don't really know what to get him. He just bought a house so my sister recommended I get him "something for his house". The only things I end up looking at is candles or cooking stuff and I think it'd end up being a gift more for his wife than for him.
If you don't care, do you make New Year's resolutions? If so, do you usually keep them?
EDIT: Now imagine that they fly the new employees in to your building for a "meet and greet" and to begin training...how do you feel during lunch?
If you had to pick a completely new/different career today, what would it be? Why?
*ETA* Thanks TQC! you have made me feel less old :)
I don't currently, but I'm REALLY hoping I get the Firefly set I asked for for Christmas. *fingers crossed*
Do you actually watch it repeatedly? Or is it more of a "Yeah...I've got it...whatever" attitude?
Who the hell lets their dog shit on the sidewalk and just leaves it there?
B) Stay at current (boring-arse) casual job which pays more but works less?
(job A = 7hrs/day | job B = 5hrs/day)
*EDIT: Job A is ESL teaching, which is what I've been doing for last 5 years. Difference will be about $100 per week LESS at Job A. Job B is sitting on my arse playing Farmville for 5 hours a day (oh, and answering TQC questions, etc) in an "individual learning centre" of an ESL school.
As for benefits - Job A will entitle me to sick leave/public holiday pay, job B currently doesn't.
(She doensn't like chocolate.)
I wish I had more time for video games and reading. I bought Dragon Age: Origins the day it came out and I'm still not past the first battle.
What is something you are putting off?
Folding laundry, doing dishes.
Have you done anything productive today?
I baked Funfetti cupcakes!
What should I wear to my husband's company Christmas party?
He works with about 20-30 neckbeards and the party is in their office. I was thinking of wearing my pink sweater with some brown dress pants. Does that go together?
( Collapse )
I saw one today and it was so weird!
What's your favorite non-gambling thing to do in vegas? People watch? Go to shows?
better question: would it be rude to send another email just saying something like "i'm sorry to be bothering you during finals but i need to know soon because i'm going away in a few days and need to know before i leave"?
When did/do you get out for Winter break?
When do classes start again?
Could you handle Mortuary Science as a career?

What is a "good girl"?
Who is a "bad girl"?
If Santa leaves a lumps of coal...is he contributing to global warming?
I'm a sophomore in college and this girl in my advanced lit class PASSES OUT every single fucking class. Literally, like five seconds in, her head starts tilting. And it's not just that but as time goes on, it's almost like her neck becomes a spring as she snaps her head around. I guess I don't understand why she even comes to class. Not only is she clearly not getting anything out of the lectures (except maybe whiplash) it's also distracting to ME to practically have to dodge her bobbling head the entire hour and half.
I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND IT.
Should I get a cupcake anyway and risk vomiting? Or not take that chance?
My bff is writing a paper and she's using the movie in it, but the DVD she was watching froze about 8 minutes from the end. She couldn't find much information about what happens at the end online, so if anyone has seen it, could you maybe give us a synopsis of the end of the movie?
Thank you thank you thank you!
Anyways, I brought up that I was going to run to Target to my room mate Monica and she said she needed to go as well so I invited her with me since I am the only one with a car.
My other room mate texted me a couple of minutes ago asking When I am going to Target. I never told her of the plans or anything so she must have talked to Monica.
It's no big deal bringing her along but I guess I think its kind of rude how she just invites herself along. I mean, if it would me, I would ask if I could go....
I fought a lot with them in the beginning of the year as I drove their asses around everywhere & they never gave me gas money.
I'm not going to bring it up to her and she is coming with us, but Idk, what do you think? Rude or not?
What are some hobbies that you'd like to pick up but you can't for lack of skill or resources or whatever?
I'm looking for a good gift for my boyfriend's brother. He loves playing Trivial Pursuit, so I wanted to get a trivia game along those lines (mostly because he has the TrivP sets he wants). I want it to be a little challenging, though.
If you don't know/don't care, what is your favorite kind of cookie? Bonus points for pics/recipes.
What would you do?
Have you ever had a friend who you don't feel that way about fall in love with you?
Personally, I would like to be buried next to a tree or have my body preserved a la Jeremy Bentham. Failing that, destroy my body atop a funeral pyre.
( Collapse )
I got my first college acceptance letter today!
What is it?
I got a new (to me) car awhile back, a 2006 Corolla, red.
I was gifted a TomTom. I need to name the boy and girl computer voices.
Yeah, I know it's cheesy, but I don't care.
Have you ever not studied at all for a final exam or other big test?
Are you aware how obnoxious that is?
If so, do you walk your bulldog on a leash, or a harness?
How do you judge the quality of a dog harness? Does it even matter? I am thinking of giving one for a secret santa gift but i have 0 knowledge on dogs and i dont want to get something crappy (and of course, she has a bulldog).
And if you do own a bulldog (or know one), please post a picture! I think theyre adorable.
What makeup do you use, if any?
Which of the following do/did you have 24/7 access to in a communal area?
Which of the following are/were you allowed to keep in your room?
Would you be/have been allowed to keep a small (vegie chopping) knife in your room?
Thanks! If your college/university has any peculiar rules or restrictions in the general "students preparing their own food" theme could you please comment and let me know about it?
My neighbor just brought me a signed picture of Eli Manning. Granted, it was pulled out of a Sports Illustrated, but it's the thought that counts. :)
At what age did you start shaving?
What razor or hair removal product do you use?
Do you shave down there?
Ex. Snow White, the seven dwarves are all stalkers... or drug addicts.
We had to do this in 8th grade, I don't remember what mine was but we had some pretty funny ones.
have you ever gone out collecting cans and bottles for the deposit/recycling money? how much did you get? and how long did it take?
what does/did your family do with all the Christmas present trash, boxes, paper and the like?
He yelled at me: "MAYBE YOU SHOULD GET A NEW JOB"
What the fuck does that even MEAN?
When was the last time someone yelled at you? What happened?
I just learned to French braid my own hair.
I signed up for a class next semester called Weird Literature. What do you think we'll study?
i just got a job offer as a barmaid / waitress, and he said i would have to wear a bikini on the weekends.
Edit: They definitely weren't drunk. They looked like they were in control of themselves but something was seriously off. Their speech was normal but their body language was so wrong it scared me immediately.
Home Alone 1 or 2
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
The Muppet Christmas Carol
The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Which one should I watch? Heck, I might even have time to watch two.
If you don't care, then what are you planning to have (or have had) for dinner?
Tonight I had a stir fry with soya-style beef pieces which were yummier than expected.
What is going on TQC?
You have a close friend or relative who is getting married. They've stated in their wedding invitations/wedding info website/e-mails/etc. that the ceremony and reception is to be "Adult Only"/absolutely no kids allowed. Do you think this is "rude"? If you had kids, would you go to the wedding and reception or stay home?
If a friend or relative of the bride/groom brought one of their kids with them anyway despite being told no, what would you think? Does your answer depend on whether or not the kid is disruptive?
Why am I more excited for New Year's than Christmas? Is it because I bought myself some sexy shoes to wear to the party, or because I heard the weather in Abbotsford is supposed to be shitty next week?
What is your favourite Christmas baking goodie? I am excited for when my mom starts to make her peppermint chocolate bark :O
1. What's your best study method?
2. What's the most you've ever studied for a subject?
3. What's the longest you've been awake? Why?
So, TQC, do any of you keep aquariums (saltwater or freshwater, doesn't matter), or have you kept an aquarium in the past?
What was/is your experience? Was it fun? Did you/do you like it? Really, anything you have to say about aquariums would be awesome =)
Why? Why Not?
What do you do?
DK/DC- Whats for dinner?
I just did mine a couple days ago (well, trimmed them) and they were ok the past two days, but for some reason today they're driving me nuts and I'm resisting the urge to chop all my hair off.
Are you good at Sudoku puzzles?
I bought a book of them to take on the bus and to work to occupy myself, but I am shit at them and its making me feel stupid. :(
Is there anything worse than a terrible dentist? Name it. Because I'm going to my terrible dentist tomorrow and I need something to comfort myself with while I'm in pain in the chair...something to compare it to and think "at least that isn't happening to me right now."
Do you enjoy painkillers (when medically prescribed)?
I've been taking a vicodin before bed to help me sleep until I get my tooth fixed, but today at work I was in a ton of pain and took one to help. Now I feel kind of loopy, but my jaw doesn't ache quite so much so I'm enjoying it. Its almost like being drunk at work. Only no liquor breath.
What are you craving right now?
What would you put inside these yummy biscuit-ball-doodads?
Where was it to?
If you've never been on a plane, then hurry and get to it.
Bonus points if they have tv shows!
If you don't care, what is your shoe size?
What touristy things must I do?
What are some free things I can do?
Is going to Times Square for the ball drop worth it?
What are some less-touristy things to do?
How do I avoid looking like a total tourist?
*sigh* (I don't feel that sappy, but close)
Has anything similarly heart-melting happened to you lately? If so, what?
How important is it to you, on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the highest)?
Have you ever received at least a portion of a big box of fruit at holiday time?
How did you acquire it?
Among mail-order fruit items, which tend to be the best?
If I get a box of fruit and it's not all that big, do I have to share it with co-workers?
