Who wants my other Reese's Peanut Butter Cup?
(We haven't really had much contact since the split, and got on well before that, but I get a feeling he may be interested in more. Which I also sort of am...)
Or would it be entirely weird for everyone?
dk/dc: What song/artist/album/soundtrack/whatever are you currently obsessed with? I can't stop listening to Fireflies by Owl City.
Any of you into making custom dolls that could point me in a proper and fruitful direction? I don't like Asian Ball Joint Dolls and that's all I can find anything on. It's likely I'm very daft, but I'd appreciate any profound wisdom that you may bestow upon me, TQC.
Mine's spaghetti. I grew up a picky kid, and spaghetti was like one of the few things I ate. Then my parents left me alone through middle school and high school, and I made spaghetti every night because it was easy. In college, spaghetti was cheap and quick, so I got even more addicted. It took me a while before I came to really eat a lot of different stuff, but I still feel sick if I go more than a day without eating it.
I knew a guy in high school who said he ate rice with just about every meal at home (he was second-generation Chinese.) He couldn't go even a day without eating rice, and he had a personal rice-cooker in his bedroom.
What is your favorite Nick@Nite show?
i'm a slob at heart but can't stand the sight of a dirty kitchen.
Are you worried about BPA?
In a horrible candy-making accident in which I poked 310 degree syrup, I got this nasty burn on my finger. It hurt, it blistered, etc. and I was dumb and peeled the blister off.
I followed up by pouring peroxide on it and then the flesh BUBBLED UP. Not normal peroxide fizzing. The skin itself formed a bubble.

What should I do, TQC??
If it was a boy, we would have named it Eli Turner.
If it was a girl, we would have named it Madelynn Pearl.
Do you have any babies names that you've decided on?
Have any TQC homeowners purchased/installed a wood stove insert into their existing fireplace before? What kinds of up front/not so upfront costs and effort were involved?
This blizzard over New England right now has me burning a lovely fire, but there's no way in hell I'm leaving the house while that's going.
Do you buy presents for your child's babysitter or teachers?
how much do you spend?

Does anyone know where a fatty with some junk in the trunk and a long inseam can get some decent trousers? :( (that ISN'T Lane Bryant)
Do you know if it's possible to just have the fencing from one place moved to another? (like fencing from the front yard transferred to the back yard)
Do you get depressed easy?
What do you do when you feel really lonely but you have no one to talk to?
What color do you wear?
EDIT: I just found a site which talks about apparently graphic sex scenes, so I don't think I should buy it for my dad's wife... But, since I'm here anyway, any suggestions? She likes Laurell K. Hamilton, which is how I found this other book, but she owns all of the Hamilton books, so I can't just buy her one of those.
I was at a family party last night, and when you walked in you got a sticker with the name of a famous person put on your back. You could ask each person three yes/no questions in order to figure out who you were, but you couldn't give anyone hints!
It was a lot of fun! (My husband was Barack Obama, and I was Beyonce. Others included Elvis, Marlyn Monroe, God, and one of the Jonas brothers)
Now I'm going to hunt this down for the lulz.
If you don't know or don't care, how are you spending your Sunday?
In bed, pissed at the world.
What are the chances it will be ok if I put it on its usb and hook it up to the computer?
Will I most likely have to take it to where my mom got it and have it fixed?
Will you post a ~sexy~ line in a comment and have a sexual conversation with the other TQCers?
TQC, I have TONS of white chocolate/oreo and peanut butter/chocolate fudge in my house. I made it for Christmas parties that I coudln't go to thanks to 22" of snow being dumped on me yesterday.
So, today I'm snowed in to the house.
-Should I bake something despite having all of this fudge in my house?
-If so, what should I bake? I do have cookie cutters so I could make cut-out cookies. I also have the ingredients for White Chocolate Cranberry cookies. Or pretty m uch any other baked good.
What's your favorite high school related movie?
Edit the second: He's the one saying he'll be fine with roast potatoes and salads. I am the one wanting to accommodate him and asking him what he'd like that's special, and my mother is the one wanting to be a good hostess and make sure people are happy. Not him. Though his suggestions aren't 'acceptable' to her due to space and time and theme.
What's something 'special', and 'christmassy' that wouldn't be too hard to cook, that he could eat?
His suggestion was pizza. Would you like pizza for Christmas?
If you can't help me with either of those, what's your favourite Christmas food?
Should I go with an old school, neon, 1993 style? Or should I try to find something more 'in style' (or as in style as a fanny pack can be)? I'm checked etsy right now, but am open to suggestions!
*I think she'll also put her purse down and forget it, so I want to get something that will stay attached to her. If not a fanny back, maybe a wristlet?
Do you usually have music on or silence? I've found music makes it muuuch nicer!! What do you listen to?
I'm making my own baking playlist now.. Suggestions??? Serious or Silly!
Do NOT refer me to a whatwasthatsoandso. I know about it, and keep in mind that there's a reason I posted the question here.
What was your favorite Brittany Murphy movie? I liked Clueless.
What was the last thing you baked?
Have your area had any big snow storms where you live this year?
If so, how were you affected?
Did you play in it?
Recent snow pictures are welcome. Please tell where and when they were taken.
Does Abby make up those fake names for the letter writers, or do the letter writers?
Are you going to see any movies on Friday? My family's going to see Sherlock Holmes.
2. Ad. or Advert.?
3. Where are you from?
3. Nova Scotia, Canada
If you don't, does it bother you when people do?
Where are you from?
Do you have a video or audio clip of it?
EDIT: Got it!
Have you ever been spoilt for something? What was it?
I secretly love spoilers; when the last Harry Potter book came out I read the spoilers on the internet for it the day before it was released. I just Wikipedia'd the end of The Lovely Bones, which I'm almost at the end of. I frequently find out how movies are going to end before I see them; and I just started watching Mad Men and I'm almost 100% certain that I'll have looked up the series plot synopsis on Wikipedia before the end of the day. I'm terrible.
I won't do anything with it.
But if I could, what would be the funniest most horrifying (for him) use for it?
What would you do if you found something similar?
The project is a Harley Quinn costume, the fabric is spandex. So it's fitting to the body and its gonna need to be pretty stretchy. I don't know how crucial the sewing machine vs. serger differences are in this situation.
Would you wear snowboarding boots if you weren't snowboarding?
Also, will you tell us about the absolute messiest person you know?
Anyone got any idea how I could make a better playlist?
Is there a famous person whose death would greatly affect you?
I'll admit that I pitched a fit when Heath Ledger died. I would have done so when MJ died but I was at work when that happened.
What function or application do you use the most and why?
If you don't have a Crackberry/iPhone/other smartphone:
Do you want one? Why/why not?
I've already decided on chicken breast, cheese and pepperocini peppers.
What's your favorite cookie recipe?
My favorite is - oddly enough - Laura Bush's Cowboy Cookie recipe, which I make every year. I haven't yet tried to make a vegan version of it, but that's on the agenda this year.
( Collapse )
What is your favorite farm animal?
however, my friend refuses to order it because she doesn't want to say "bastard" and says it's a bad word.
While I wouldn't necessarily say it in front of a group of little kids, I don't see the big deal of saying it when that's what the donut is called.
so tqc, what do you think? is she a goody goody or am i just a heathen?
Is bastard a "dirty word"
PLEASE NAME NAMES. Don't play the game if you don't name the names.
Jam or syrup?
Fruit pieces, nuts, chocolate?
Oatmeal or Cream of Wheat?
Banana waffles, blueberry syrup, pecans.
Cream of wheat, brown sugar, milk, pecans, butter.
Also, while eating pancakes and eggs, I Stumbled Upon this website with pancake pillows
What does a migraine feel like? I have severe pain concentrated in one area of my head. I am nauseated. The light from my phone (on which I am typing) isn't bothering me, but my Christmas tree lights make my head hurt worse. (I've turned them off.) It's miraculously quiet in my house, but the neighborhood kids' screaming is feeling like a punch to the head.
Now I want to call, and I know I should call today, but I have no idea what to talk about, I mean the only real thing I know about him is what car he drives, his first name and where he worked 10+ years ago. But we banter well so that is something....
I have not done this in sooooo long....
Are you able to give me some advice?
So What are your talking points on that first phone call?
When was the last time you made a similar type of call?
2)What holiday treats do you hate?
3)What fruit do you eat in winter?
Post from mobile portal m.livejournal.com
Ratatouille is my favorite <3
We can do one more question for 5 points.
I already have a good grade in the class.
Should I do the bonus question?
Did you have any take home finals? For which classes?
How long does it take for your school to post your grades after you've taken a final?
If you were tight financially, and your family is tight financially, wouldn't you just be okay if they can't get you anything?
Would you be upset if you didn't get gifts for your wedding? Not necessarily 'cause you want gifts, but 'cause you need the stuff on your registry?
What about baby showers?
Would you be mad if you didn't get cute (but not necessary) gifts for your soon-to-be born baby?

What should I do to celebrate, TQC? I don't want to drive to the city. My dad has accumulated a pretty full bar at home and is learning how to mix drinks, and wants someone to practice on.... I'm not a party girl and I don't like the flavor of alcohol, but I'd like to make some good 21st birthday memories!
How was it?
What do you think of carolers in general?
What is the proper etiquette? Do I invite them inside out of the cold? Do I go and stand in the cold with them? Do I applaud? Am I supposed to have cookies for them? What?
Does it make me a Grinch that I would really have rather not gotten up from my nice warm blanket to stand and listen to children I didn't know sing off-key in the cold and then have them hand me a "Jesus Saves" flier while I momentarily panicked about etiquette and let all of the heat out of my house?
So, TQC, do you have any tips on driving in the snow?
I would like to recommend the Handy Tweakers program... It turns your computer off automatically after a certain amount of time/at a certain time. I listen to music at night on my computer so it's super helpful.
Would you dissuade others from trying/seeing/experiencing something?
I would advise against seeing the Cirque du Soleil production of Wintuk, because it's straight garbage.
Sometimes I'm struck with a horrible headache (usually behind my eye or something) and it hurts like hell, but it goes away within 30 seconds or so.
I've been prescribed migraine medication--is what I'm experiencing any type of migraine or anything?

do you have any cooking secrets? are you willing to share them?
when making tomato sauce, saute your garlic in butter, never in oil
So, TQC, what are some things you always forget to take when you go away somewhere?
Do you have a Christmas icon?
Do you use the same one every year?
Why did she come?
Would you come to an event in this circumstance?
How can I make crutches NOT HURT LIKE HELL under my armpits?
Have you ever had a snow-related injury?
Since McDonald's failed to have a wet floor sign out and I hurt myself, I could take legal action (considering I'm uninsured, too). Should I? I got an incident report and stuff...
I have been invited to boyfriend's house for Christmas Eve, and then am expected in CT on Christmas Day (my mother has said she would be "really upset" if I wasn't there). I'm also going to Israel after the New Year, so my kitten will be coming to CT with me and staying with my parents while I'm gone. The weather on Christmas Day (as of now) is supposed to be freezing rain. I had planned to dope my cat so the ride wouldn't be so bad for her (she doesn't freak out, she just shakes and looks generally miserable). Problem is, I need to leave about an hour and a half to two hours for the meds to take affect. My boyfriend's brother is very allergic, so I can't bring the cat to his family's house.

Back story: My sister is 23 years old and lives with her 22 year old baby daddy and my nephew. She's bipolar and ADD. In the past, they both have had drug problems and my sister is on probation. She's clean now and about to get off probation in January. Neither of them have jobs or a car. His parents pay their rent. Their place is an absolute mess, both of them live like pigs. They have a lot of animals, including a scorpion, a tarantula, and snakes. He's into fishing and I've found fish hooks on the floor and my nephew just started walking. Baby daddy has a prescription for roxicodone and my mom and I think he's selling it. My sister told my mom the other day that my nephew spilled some juice on the floor and baby daddy got 2 inches away from his face and screamed, "Jason! What the fuck is wrong with you!" and he started crying. My sister also talks about how much she hates the baby, right in front of him. Hearing this makes me so mad I want to punch something. Baby daddy is very anti-social, he never speaks and plays xbox all day, and he has a rule that if my sister's family wants to come over, we have to call ahead or we won't be let inside. My nephew never wears shoes, he's always dirty and hungry. I feel so bad for him. I've been thinking about saving up money so my sister can move in with me with her son, but I also have to think about myself and my mental health. My mom won't let her move back home right now because my sister won't follow the rules about cleaning up after herself and getting a job. But my nephew being in that environment and growing up like that makes me sick.
What would you do? What should I do?
Right around freezing and snooooow! I'm on the East Coast of the US, in Northern VA.
Did you get hit by THE STORM? How much snow fell and how excited are you about it?
We got about 2 feet of snow and I am so excited! I love snow and we never get enough for my tastes!
Rage Against The Machine got christmas #1 and I for one am delighted!
Are you happy or sad that the X-Factor's Joe McElderry lost?
What are some of your favourite comfort food recipes? (inb4 chicken noodle, as I'm not that fond of it.)
DK/DC: What's your favourite thing/memory about your best friend? (Can be current best friend, or one from the past.)
First of all, what the best lotion in your experience as far as moisturizing without feeling greasy? I've used the Olay Body Quench mousse (which left my skin greasy for a long time afterward) and Johnson & Johnson's 24-hour moisturizer (which didn't really moisturize very well). New product needed!
Also, what's the deal with body butter? Is it better or worse than lotion?
what's your favourite character off The Cosby Show/which one can you relate with most?
For everyone else - what is your favorite famous rivalry?
What's the best gift exchange gift you have ever received/seen/given? Around $20-30.
I have to buy a gift suitable for a rather diverse group of people, and I'm thinking 2 cute mugs with cocoa mix and a small bottle of Amaretto. What do you think of that?
I want to go see Avatar in 3D, but when I asked a friend to go with me, he said "That's a waste of money, only 20 minutes or so will be actually 3D and the rest will be normal - like with the Harry Potter movies!" or something like that.
QUESTION: Is the whole almost-3-hours of the film in 3D or only part of it?
Why do people offer "advice" when you haven't even asked? This happened to me today and the person was way off base. I sent a passive aggressive message back but I think it might go over their head.
When was the last time someone offered you unwanted "advice"? Does it matter if they probably didn't realise how rude they were actually being?
My "Resident's Guide" says that the staff is adequately compensated and you don't need to tip them, but if you want to there will be a drop box provided. Does this mean "we can't ASK you to tip them, but you should"? Or does it mean exactly what it says?
What would you choose?
additionally, which do you think is worse based on people you know, becoming a widow, or a widower?
Wasn't it yummy?
I've been watching The Incredibles :)
What do you do to get your mind off how much you hate humanity?
Edit: This is the group in question.
Is it as normal as a boyfriend wanting to have sex with his girlfriend and rip a thick piece of skin protecting her maidenhood to shreds?
It would involve a lot of shopping.
2)Do you understand the appeal of going to see movies IN 3D?
3)What do people keep in the public parks?
Our city keeps bison in a park. I once saw a lot of horses too.
i drag my right index finger over them. it's just so satisfying!
A new battery seemed to help, even though the light was green before I changed it. =/ Technology.
If so, who will be the next two?
Have any of you done it? Did you get sick?
Is he going to be okay? I'd rather not worry about him all night. :(
What phone should I get instead of my crappy colored original enV?
