Does anyone have the gif from Clueless where Cher fixes Tai's hair for a photo? It was in ONTD but I can't find it. :(
How long would it take an illiterate adult to learn to read and write in their native language?
They are of average intelligence, probably can recognize a few basic things, but that's it.
This isn't a real situation, it's for a story.
What color clothing ~flatters~ you?
What color makes you look like shit? Have you been in situations where you had to wear this color (eg: school color, work uniform, etc)?
Are you able to wear your favorite color?
out of all the stephen king novels, which do you think is the scariest?
Are you lacking a keratinous skin layer?
How would you explain free health care as being a "right"?
Example: The right to the pursuit of happiness is precisely that: the right to the pursuit -- to a certain type of action on your part and its result -- not to any guarantee that other people will make you happy or even try to do so. Otherwise, there would be no liberty in the country: if your mere desire for something, anything, imposes a duty on other people to satisfy you, then they have no choice in their lives, no say in what they do, they have no liberty, they cannot pursue their happiness. Your "right" to happiness at their expense means that they become rightless serfs, i.e., your slaves. Your right to anything at others' expense means that they become rightless.
Note: I did not write the above.
How would you pronounce the name Delia?
Tonight, I finally had revenge on my little brother's friend (he's 17) who threw a lit cigarette at me a month and a half back. He's a huge asshole and I fucking hate him, but that just iced the cake. Finally, I got him at a prone position (super focused on a video game) and I came up behind him and slapped the everloving shit out of the back of his head. He made a big production out of screaming ow but it didn't stop his video game playing, etc.
I went up the stairs laughing, where my mom asked what was so funny, and I told her. Her response was along the lines of "omg how could you". I told her that it was payback for throwing the cigarette at me (and burning part of my shoes, tysvm) and she said "that wasn't a big deal" and that I was in the wrong for smacking the hell out of him and that i should apologize etc
TQC, am I being unreasonable here saying WHAT THE EVER LOVING FUCK? I feel like throwing a lit cigarette at a person is way worse than slapping the shit out of someone. What do you think?
What are some of your annoying relationship habits?
I tend to want to talk a lot more than I probably should.
What are things that you just cannot stand your SO doing?
This question is null for me ATM. I'm just curious.
If you don't have an SO, do you want one? Do you have someone in mind?
I do, and I have someone.
What's the difference between "talking" to someone and "seeing" someone?
I think talking is just getting to know someone, and seeing them is when there's almost an non-verbal commitment agreement to not see anyone else...the step before the R word.
Edited because it came out as one giant paragraph instead of broken up questions. Sorry. =/
What type of underwear do you like on a man?
What type of man do you want in underwear?
Can you show me some examples? (of men in underwear, not just underwear, cause really, who cares?)
Okay, so my SO and I have been together almost 2 years. He doesn't talk much...hasn't talked much from the jump. This has been a consistent back and forth between the two of us, about how I carry every conversation that we have. Lately, I've given up, to the point where he sits on his laptop, and I sit on mine, and we won't talk for hours. Tonight, he called me boring.
How important is talking with your SO to the balance of your relationship?
Is not being able to talk (or talk about what you have in common, if anything) a deal breaker?
why doesn't Howie Mandel wear gloves?
it's almost 3am and i'll be having my late supper soon. i'll probably be asleep by 5 or something like that. i have my first driving lesson tomorrow and i'd have to be up by 9.30am. do i just go after less than 5 hours of sleep, or reschedule in the morning?
SO...what's the last great idea you had that didn't go over all that well???

Have you ever spend Christmas in Hawaii or Mexico or someplace tropical? What was it like?
I guess where you're from would also be relevant.
Do you add sugar to a food you regularly eat that really doesn't need it?
What is that food?
If you go to a gas station or some sort of convenience store that has fountain sodas and see a sign that says, "Small, Medium and Large - All 99 cents!" Would you buy a large even if you're only semi-thirsty?
Brought to you by a friend of mine who got a small, because she "wasn't that thirsty". I didn't get it. Just get the large, it's the same price, you might wind up drinking it!
Interview time: tell me three strong qualities and one weak quality about yourself?
What kind of delicious baked good should I bring in to my new office next week on my first day? It's a tiny office full of women, so not something too decadent/nobody will eat (aside from me). Or should I play it safe and just buy a box of joe from Dunkin Donuts or something? though I don't know if there's a coffee maker (they probably do)...
I bought a trifle dish a couple of days ago and I have no idea what to make first in it.
There are TONS of awesome looking recipes online and I want to try them all....right now.
What is your favorite dessert made in a trifle dish?
TQC, I know a lot of you are moms. I have two pregnant friends due at the end of our semester in early/mid-May. What should I get them for Christmas? They are both 21, neither are married but they are committed or at least sticking around with their baby daddies until the births. I am 21 too, I don't know what a good baby momma gift is. Suggestions? What would you have wanted really badly about 4-5 months into your pregnancy?
edit to add: this is not the only thing I'm getting them. I just want to get them something useful too. Kind of a something they want and something they need thing.
Did you know that THINK and FEEL are NOT the same word and aren't interchangable??

2)Have you ever watched a Disney movie sequel? how was it?
1.) What kind of gift would you suggest for a 25 year old man who is amazing but extremely hard to shop for? No real hobbies except for an online game, doesn't collect anything, hates sports, doesn't watch a ton of t.v., doesn't like DVD's because he can get it off of the computer..... wow, lol. Any suggestions TQC?
Don't know/Don't care:
2.) What are YOU getting for one of the important men in your life?
I am going away for 6 months, and would like to have a farewell shindig. All my friends are 21-ish, but I don't want to just do a pissup at my house because we do that a lot and I'd like to do something a bit special. Downside is that I have to do it between xmas and new years; and that's not a lot of notice for people so I can't do anything that requires my guests to do anything other than rock up and have fun.
I was thinking about turning my house into a giant blanketfort, but I am a bit low on sheets and things.
What other fun party/farewell things could I do?
Also: I am coming to the states for 6 months. I will need to get a prepaid SIM for my iphone - which network should I go with? I'll be in San Fran, if that makes a difference...
What is your favorite fruit to eat? Is it different from your favorite fruit flavor?
Hullo. I was wondering what exercises have worked out well for YOU when it comes to targeting the abdominal muscles. I have basics weights and weight-machine-thingy in the building's fitness room if that's applicable.
Anything thing but crunches as my wonky hips seem to get excessively sore before I've even hit ten or so. And then it just seems counter-productive.
Has your dog ever gotten sprayed by a skunk?
How did you get the smell off of them?
My dog got sprayed last night and I gave him a normal bath because I'm an idiot and it just made the smell worse. He has to stay outside now because he smells absolutely horrible and I feel bad because it's pretty cold.

Have you ever had to get rid of a pet? What was the reason?
I have a cat that I've had for about 6 years now. I love him to death, but I have terrible allergies because of him and they seem to be getting worse. He doesn't like being outdoors and actually got inside a neighbor's house and fought their cat so I'm scared to have him outside. I just really feel like it might be time to think of giving him another home because he's probably not as happy with us as he could be with someone else. He's limited as far as where he can go in my house (all the rooms upstairs are off limits) and he acts out because he wants attention that I can't always give him (due to my allergies) and unfortunately no one else in my house is really keen on him. I'm just afraid to give him away to a stranger because I'm afraid they'll get sick of him and just take him to the pound, where he'll most certainly be put down. Do you have any advice for me? I've asked around to family and friends and no one wants my kitty. :(
My sister just found out that she's having a second daughter.
What will they name her, TQC?
Are you making any gifts this year?
What are you making?
I'm just back from the doctor after being told I have a lung infection + respiration infection. Basically I find it difficult to breathe, coughing up blood, need an inhaler if I want to walk 2 steps etc etc. Anyway, the doctor gave me a sick line for 1 week (till the 28th) and said I need to use it for at least 5 days otherwise this just won't go away, as I've already had it for 3 weeks while working fulltime.
I'm actually so scared to phone work because it would mean I'd be off over Christmas time. I work in an entertainment complex so we're open everyday but Christmas, and I'm their full time receptionist (on my feet for about 10 hours a day.)
What would you do? Just suck it up and go to work (and possibly die or w/e) or just be a bitch and tell them you can't.
Also: I can't be fired for this right!?
Why does Kathy Griffin hate Ryan Seacrest so much?
Do you shake/jiggle/squeeze your presents and try to guess what they are?
Do you wrap stocking stuffers before you put them in the stocking?
Where do you hide presents?
- Yes, but I'm not a very good guesser
- I grew up just putting them in the stocking, but apparently that's wrong, and I've been told to wrap them first this year
- Gun safe...she'd never look in there...and doesn't know where the key is anyway

I just got a call from my daughter's teacher. One of her school friends was killed in a car accident this weekend. She's never known anyone who's died before, and this is going to devestate her. So all knowing TQC, how do I break this horrible news to a 7 year old?
If there truly was a Santa Claus, and you'd be guaranteed to get the one thing you want most under the Christmas Tree, what would you ask Santa for?
I was supposed to have a phone interview at 4:00pm CST. It's now 4:32pm CST, and I'm still just sitting here by the phone. How long should I wait for the call? Should I send an email asking what's up? I got shit to do!
Which Olsen twin is the slutty one?
I took my medication at around 1pm, and threw up around a half hour later. Should I take it again? Or would it already have gotten into my system?
My friend broke up with her boyfriend of 4 years back in October. Starting around Halloween she was dating another guy, but they ended things this weekend. She was really upset because he didn't want kids or marriage, and just thought they were doing things for fun. She claims she really liked him, but he's someone that's so not her type and who doesn't really have a lot going for him in life. Regardless, she was pretty upset and was wondering "Why can't things just work out and why can't the guy I like just be the right guy for me?"
I'm perpetually single, so I keep trying to tell her things like being alone isn't the worse thing in the world, that this is the time for us to be single, we're young and shouldn't have any man tie us down, etc. These things are not so comforting to her.
TQC, I don't know how to help her. I had originally told her back in October that she needed to take at least 6 months for herself before jumping into anything new or old. I need a different approach. How else can I make her realize that she doesn't need a boyfriend to define her?
For those tl;dr: How can I help my friend realize it's ok to be single?

My boyfriend just grabbed my laptop when I stepped out of the room and ruined his Christmas surprise. How mad at him should I be?
I said that since all of his surprises are ruined, he has to tell me what he's getting for me. He said he will if I really want him to. Should I ruin my own surprise?
Do you maintain a community?

Do you negotiate with terrorists?
Can you guess my gift?
My husband likes to torture me and give me hints about my gifts but not actually tell me what they are or open them early.
Here's what I know:
-He carried it home on the bus, but it wouldn't fit in his messenger bag
-His coworkers were impressed with it
-It's not electronic or knitting related
-It's not green
-It's not a toddler
EDIT: I'm pretty sure it's not alive. He brought it home with him and it's in our house somewhere. If it was alive, I have a feeling that our dog would be going insane.
Serious and non-serious answers are welcome.
My boyfriend's family does a white elephant gift exchange the day after Christmas, and all I know is that it's a $10-$15 spending limit. I definitely walked out of Walgreens with a sea monkey kit. Is that acceptable or should I take it back and buy some ~candles~ or decorative/more mature shit? (it's me, him, his mom, aunt, uncle, cousin, and grandparents).
Would you be happy to receive sea monkeys as a white elephant gift?
Have you ever been afraid to get your hair cut?
-I've had so many bad haircuts in the past, I haven't gotten one for years now. Not even a trim D:
If "yes"... how did you get over it?
-(I really want change. A cut, maybe some bangs, and I have so many split ends its ridiculous)
If none of these apply to you... When's the last time someone bailed on you? What was their excuse?
-Today. My friend was supposed to drive with me to seattle, last night at like 11 he informed me that he had to work today, it was too late to find someone else to go with me. Asshole.
Dog owners: How many times do you walk your dog?
I'm dog sitting for this couple this Christmas and the dog needs to be walked twice. She's a big dog! (Pitbull/Boxer mix) Don't you think she would need to go out more than twice?

Do you know someone that tells you to do something and then tacks on "thanks" to the end as if just asking means you'll do it? I find it annoying. At least let me say something first.
I know a friend (not a very close friend)'s boyfriend is cheating on her. Should I tell her? I feel weird, and like it's not my place/business. I've maybe hung out with the girl (and boyfriend) a handful of times.
*It's a serious relationship and the girl is head over heels for him, and is very much apart of his family (it seems).
Hay guys. I'm driving ~14 hours from GA to NJ tomorrow and I am in desperate need of an audiobook to download/listen to. Can you give me some suggestions? When driving, I generally prefer funny chick-books, or otherwise books I don't have to think too much about... nothing too serious.
Plz and thanks.

TQC i need your Christmassy help. We are doing a Secret Santa in work and the person i need to buy for is a guy i have never even met. i was left with him coz i was off for 2 weeks and only started back last thursday. he started in work while i was off. our office is so big that i havent yet even seen him. our budget is £5 ( is that about $10?). he is a guy in his early 20's.....and thats all i know about him. what the hell can i get him that doesnt look like it has utterly no thought behind it (not generic bottle of wine/shower gift set etc)?

Also the reason I ask is because I have quite a few problems with my hearing which are starting to affect my daily life quite annoyingly so I wanted to see if this was normal or another problem added onto my list. It is annoying because I miss whole conversations but if it's normal that's okay :P
