tqc, what should i eat?
alternatively, what do you pig out on?
Does the sight of regularly-shaped things (bricks, softcover books, cans, boxes of Toblerone, bouncy balls, and so on and so forth) make you irrationally happy? Does feeling them—running your fingers over them, feeling every curve, every corner, every perfect angle slide across your sensitive flesh—make you giddy like a grammar school kid learning that today is a snow day?
If you had to travel down into a spooky, dark basement in a house you were unfamiliar with, what would you take to defend yourself with? Would you keep close by your side your fierce, faithful kitten, who fears nothing but the sound of a can opener coming and going without so much as a morsel of tuna being delivered to it?
What's more disgusting?
Which would you rather do?
What would you rather do?

What would you sooner set fire to?
dkdc, what's the next thing you're looking forward to?
How many concerts did you go to this year? Who was the headliner?
9 - Britney x2, Lady Gaga, Montgomery Gentry, Jake Owen, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Craig Morgan, U2
Any major concerts on your 2010 horizon?
Eric Clapton! Maybe Bon Jovi--idk. Most country concerts are announced closer to the date, so no idea there yet.
Can you tell me a story about wisdom teeth?Yours, your friends, anyones. Anything funny or really scary! Removing them...how much they hurt you...when you got yours...
i've been on different kinds for 6 years and a few months ago took a break from them all only to realize that they are why i am crazy and emotional. i need something new.
Will you share your ~creepy~ experiences? Not necessarily with the supernatural, just creepy things that have happened to you or someone you know.
Inspired by the random someone-is-watching-me feeling I just got. :(
I got asked out by a guy that's 7 years older than me. I like him but the age difference is weirding me out a bit. Should i just suck it up?
What colors were on your Christmas tree this year?
Does pineapple on a pizza thrill you?
What was your first word?
MINE: I really want the bike with the side car from Garden State :D (if only I knew what it was), and any Trans Am. I miss my old two. :(
So, is it really a bad idea to do this in one sitting with box dye? I know they advise against it, but I also figure it's a different case for everyone. Thank you for the help. ♥
(PS: No opinion!comments on the colour itself, please. XD It's a pretty colour, gosh dang it, and I will achieve it someday.)
Edit: I know it's bad form to delete posts, but crisis pretty much averted. Received the advice I wanted from my sister, but thanks for all the opinions, guys!
Two people are coming and all three of us are friends with each-other. One is coming to visit over New Years and has to be picked up at the airport at 8 AM on Dec. 31st. Another friend of mine has a layover in the same airport on the same day at 1 PM on the way to Australia. We all want to see each-other. I don't have a car, and it's three buses to Los Angeles airport. Renting a car is gonna cost $60 a day and most car places are closed for a couple days after New Years. I lost my job after I arranged this trip and can't afford a car for half a week. I only know two people with cars and neither are available.
What am I gonna do?
Nothing strange? Tell me how jealous you are of the toaster I got my SO for Christmas. It burns Darth Vader into the toast!
And everyone else, have a lovely evening/morning/whatever.
I don't remember if saying something is ace is a real expression or not.
If you had been born as a little person, would you choose to grow taller with those leg stretches devices?
If you dk/dc, what are you doing for New Year's Eve?

Don't know or care, will you tell me what you plan to do today?
Are there any online courses or books I can pick up that are focused not on new A+ certs, but on older certs that want to brush up on the changes the IT world has seen recently?
Is it possible and worthwhile to retake the test so I have a more recent cert date? IIRC it doesn't technically expire, but I'm concerned that someone reviewing a resume listing a 2002 cert date and not much recent work in the field might not be too inclined to go with me. I'd have to spend a few days brushing up but I have no doubts about my ability to pass a retest.
Somewhat related. I've got a 14th edition of Upgrading and Repairing PCs. Does the current edition have enough new material to justify the purchase?
There is about a 40% chance that if I go to sleep, I will not respond to any alarm set.
Do I risk it and try to catch a little shut eye or push through it and pass out mid-shift?
Will you fill in the blank in order to make today really productive?
TODAY I WILL _________.
If you don't care... what is your current hair care routine?
I just heard my mom gossiping my aunt about how bad my acne has gotten and I'm 'not right in the head'. Nice... Happy holidays to you to, mommy.
-She was in a decently paying job, her husband is in dental school til 2010.
-She just got laid off. She got a one-month severance and wll now collect unemployment.
-They have $50k+ in the bank.
-They're also getting student loans for her dental-school-husband and could take out more.
-They were going to start trying to conceive a baby in March.
What should my LJ friend do?
Pros for Peabody: traditional NYE. meet new people.
Cons: downtown parking will be insane. need to find someone to go with. Cost $40.
Pros for board gaming: SWEET! NOW I CAN PLAY THAT AGRICOLA EXPANSION! Know everyone; no payment involved.
Cons: Really? board gaming?
Will you decide for me?
edit: I haven't gotten airline peanuts in at least 5 years. I hate you.
I have been in Japan for almost four months, and I am thinking about adding heated self flushing toilet accessories to the list of 'must haves'.
Also, what have you been up to peoples?
EDIT-O-MATIC: They are MINE. You can't have any.
Last night, I locked myself out of my apartment. All of my roommates are gone for the holidays, and I live in a walk up in NYC so there was no lobby security or anything. I had no choice but to call a locksmith, and it cost me a whopping $369. FUCK.
(sorry, I had to vent)
Also, does anyone have Scribblenauts for the DS? What are your favorite/most useful words?
Should I assume the office will let him know the package is there or is it possible they will expect him to come get it? He doesn't know we got him anything so I'm worried if he doesn't claim it it will be sent back. Should I try to find the office number and call them and find out what they're gonna do or just give it a little more time?
I think I'm being overly paranoid about this lol
So yesterday afternoon, I texted her asking her when and where we should meet up. But she hasn't responded.
I have no social skills as well as the infamous ~social anxiety disorder~, so I have no idea how to interpret this situation. Should I call her? Did she remember what I creep I was in high school and decided to ignore me? This is some game? I really have no idea what's going on and its kinda stressing me out.
If you don't care:
What's your favorite pizza topping?
What kinds of people do you like or love?
A) Diamond earrings in white gold (.25 ctw)
B) Fleecy winter boots and a new handbag (both of your choice)

What did you learn today?
....We also have to cut out one holiday in your country, which is it? (They cannot be the same day)
It's relatively long with bangs, naturally straight but pretty thick, and dark brown/auburnish. It's in good condition and I'd like to keep it that way.
So I'm thinking of dying it. I don't want to do anything really drastic, and I was sort of thinking of dying the underneath or something kind of funky but subtle.
I don't know, really. So what should I do with my hair?

For those of you with anosmia... which, um, scented candle's color is most pleasing to your eye?
For those of you with anosmia and total colorblindness, hmmm... which scented candle has your favorite texture, I guess?
For those of you with anosmia, total colorblindness, and full-body tactile anesthesia... wow. I'm... I'm really, really sorry to hear that.
Have you ever had appendicitis? What happened?
What did it feel like?
I called my tattoo artist yesterday and left a message. I haven't heard back yet. Should I call again? I don't want to seem like a nag, but I really want to book an appointment!
Will you share a story about something funny you did as a child?
Were you an "oops-baby"?
Which movie should I watch?

Getting blow jobs?
Pain? (spanking, nails, biting, etc)
Sex in public?
Roleplaying in the bedroom?
We both lived at an International Student House (although we're both American). One day I was wearing my college sweatshirt, and he struck up a conversation since he went to law school at the same school. About three weeks later, we were together.
Have you done anything productive today? I'm finally cleaning up my filthy room.
I'm trying to convince her to get a PC. My reasoning:
-You will get a lot more for your money (she is not rich, she tells me this all the time)
-Her needs are simple- a PC will do everything she could want or need in the foreseeable future.
-More people will be able to help her with PC issues (including myself and my PC tech boyfriend)
-There are more classes and training opportunities (like adult-ed at our local community college)
She wants a mac and only a mac. Her reasoning:
-Her limited computer skills are mac specific
-The mac store has tutorials
-She will get a teacher discount (and save a few hundred tops)
-She can make a web-site and fliers (apparently this can't be done on a PC)
-She can take a computer skills class and just apply it to the mac (she is easily confused at little computer things- I think this sounds like a terrible idea)
Her main goals for the year are to create a website for her small business and start doing more business stuff with a computer.
Who is in the right? How can I convince her that a PC is what she needs right now?
ETA: She asked me to help her pick one out
What Windows program does your work office use today?
How difficult was it to receive your gun permit within the state of Massachusetts? Once obtained, does it require renewing? I'm talking recent applications, after the whole FID card thing was done away with (which was over 10 years ago, at least).

Let's say you could get 2 front row concert tickets to one of the following artists. Who would you pick?
i just want to get rid of a space between lines and it's not letting me do it.
What are you having for dinner tonight?
DK/DC: What is your number one destination?
Is there anyway I can fix this?!
There is also an 8 year old sibling in the house in the room next door, if that influences your decision at all.
What do you do, TQC?
In this poll, you're stuck with 2 front row tickets to one of the following artists. You have to go. However, you can pay $100 to get out of the deal. Who do you see?
I've been on Yasmin birth control for four years and for the first time ever, I messed up!
Sometime last week, I took 2 pills in one day and I was having sex all week. I realized I'd doubled up on Thursday ! 10pm (which is when I ALWAYS take my pills), so I didn't take a pill that night but instead took Friday's very early- at 3pm. -- the doubling up must have happened either Tuesday or Wednesday night.
I took Saturday's pill on time, and have been taking them like normal and perfectly since. I am so used to not even worrying about this, that I had sex yesterday. I am now spotting, and my period is supposed to start this coming Monday.
Did I do the right thing with the pill?
Why do you think I'm spotting?
What should I bang my head against to punish myself for being so stupid?
What should I name my potential child?
Due to various circumstances in your life, you've had to move away from them, and you only had one night, just dinner and a movie, together. But you talk regularly online and on the phone.
This person has known for a very long time that their life goal is to move to Japan and live there forever. You have known for a very long time that your life goal is to move to New York City and live there forever.
Would you consider moving to Japan with this person, and give up your NYC dreams?
Would you try to persuade them to stay stateside?

TQC, what do these dreams mean!?
Have you ever stayed in a hospital overnight? How did that turn out?
*or your local equivalent
Alternatively, what do you get at Coldstone Creamery if they have one where you are?
EXAMPLE "If you saw an ex or one night stand you would a. b. or c. I picked wave and say hello" It then told me something like "You arent embarrassed to confront people whether they are your life time friend or a one night fling, you will always say hello" We didnt talk about it to much but it was always listed in questions of situations.
Does anyone know anything about this book or type of characterizing?
Xposted in whatwasthatone.

what was the last takeaway you ordered?
If more than one sibling of the same sex, would they all be in your wedding party?
Or would it not be an issue and you would a)have them in your wedding party, no hesitation or b)they wouldn't even be a consideration?
My sister is getting married and we had already agreed we would be each other's maid of honor. I just talked to a girl who doesn't think someone should be in your wedding party just because they're your sister but I guess it's because I'm fairly close with mine that I'd want her to stand for me.
what do you recommend be done about plantar warts?
can they be fixed without dry ice?
my husband and I are in france at the moment and our french is not so great, so we can't really ask a doctor or pharmacist.
Does anyone even like Spiderman?
More nonsterotypical people of color, more women over 40. Fewer love stories.
2)What do you need to do before the end of the year?
Should I go downtown alone and enjoy the festivities & fireworks?

*on a related note, does anyone know where i could watch that bbc documentary "married to the eiffel tower"?
I don't play a lot, mostly because I don't have a lot of time and I don't do well with anything complicated lol. I like things like games, puzzles, harvest moon and so on. I don't like star wars, shooting games, sports and so on.
Is there anything for me?? Please?

What are your plans for New Year's?
I can only get the prescription at a years worth at a time, and can only go once a year to my gyno to get another years worth.
Is this making sense?
Has this ever happened to you before? Should I talk to the pharmacist or someone at the doctors office? I need this for the whole year, not just 9 months worth D:
Can I just go to planned parenthood and get a prescription from them and avoid the police? And have enough to last the year?
Don't judge me.
So you've been drying yourself with your brother's fucking shit for three days. How do you react? Keep in mind there are both toilet paper and literally 20 other clean towels to use.
What do you think of social networking in general and what sites do you use to do this?
My brother called me a couple of hours ago, asking where he could get cardboard boxes because he's moving soon. I told him to go to a self storage place and he was all, ".....Yeah, maybe. Anyway can you ask Mum to call me when she gets home?"
And now my mum's just called him, and given him EXACTLY the same advice I did about the boxes and he's all, "Oh yeah I hadn't thought of that, thanks!"
For those of you without siblings - are you happy to be an only child, or would you rather have a brother or sister?
Is there a difference between a restraining order and an order of protection? I tried googling it and most of the stuff I found says they're the same thing, just different names. But people have told me they're different and that an order of protection is "less serious".
Was that a stupid question?
