It's time to make some haiku!
Care to play along?
Limericks are certainly fine too,
If that is what you wish to do.
It matters not to me;
I'm only here to see
What poetry can come from you.
What kind of music do you listen to when trying to cheer yourself up? What music gets you pumped and ready to go? Get you out of a slump?
I just realized I have way too much depressing music and that I need something lighter.
What are a few of your favorite songs?
You wake up one morning and find that your SO/roommate has unexpectedly brought two of his/her friends over. (You know their names but other than that you don't really know them.) You had left your laptop in the living room overnight, and one of his/her friends is now using your laptop to listen to music off the internet (but for all you know s/he might have been snooping through your email/tabs/bookmarks/history/etc. when you were asleep).
1. How violated/bothered would you feel?
2. What would you do?
What clock (or clocks) do you have by your bed? Do you have an alarm clock, a clock radio, a cell phone, all of the above, none of the above?
I have two clocks: one that's loud enough to wake me up, and one where the numbers are big enough that I can see them without my glasses. Should I get one clock that combines both functions?
If you were to replace your alarm clock(s), what alarm clock(s) would you get in its place?
How many cats does one have to have to be declared a "crazy cat person"?
Or is it just how obsessed you are with your cats?
before this moment, were you aware that whoopi goldberg doesn't have eyebrows?
what music do you like that is not in your primary language?
i've been obsessed with bluedawn, a korean band, recently, and i also listen to yelle and camille (french) and faye wong (chinese)
So I am chowing down on some wasabi covered peanuts and I have a sudden urge to touch my eyeball.
On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being "Visine" to 10 being "FFFiiiiire!!")
how do you think that felt?
Does this help you in any way?
I find useable clothing in the trash around here often. Do you wear "found" items?
Ever wear something that didn't fit just because it was free?
Don't judge yo.
Can you make candles out of ear wax
Hey TQC. I don't want to go to work today. It'll be my first day ever working this job without smoking a cigarette, and I'm worried I'm going to just flip out on some asshole customer and get written up or something. Anyone have any techniques for dealing with irritation while quitting? Normally, I just leave the room to calm down, but I can't do that while I'm on cash.
Do you ever get tired of asking questions?
Do you ever get tired of answering questions?
would you like to ask me a personal question???
I've worked 50+ hours this week without a day off. I was planning on spending today relaxing and getting work (grocery shopping, house cleaning, etc) done that I couldn't during a week. One of my jobs just left me a message asking if I was planning on coming in today. I know they need help getting inventory done and I won't be able to come in Mon-Wed due to my other job.
Should I suck it up, go in and put off housework & grocery shopping until my next day off (Thursday maybe) or tell them I can't make it in today?
i brought in a stray cat last night and let her eat sleep and poop in my bathroom. i woke up four hours earlier than planned, changed her kitty litter, put food and milk in there and played with her for a while. BUT i want to sleep again tqc! she keeps mew-ing if i leave her in the bathroom though (can't leave her in my room as she scratches and ruins my stringy wallpaper and jumps on tables), and i feel so guilty and awful :( should i let her outside and bring her in tonight? or just leave her in there?
eta: she's lived around my compound for years and i've fed her for years, so i won't have any problem calling her in when i need to or anything like that.
So is there a regular/seasonal flu going around right now? Or was this season strictly swine?
Which Walt Disney World park is your favorite?
Any comments about Walt Disney World in general?
Denny Crane on Boston Legal reminds me exactly of my dad. This is both an awesome (in a good way) and disturbing thing, and you'll know exactly what I mean by that if you've seen the show.
Do your parents remind you of any TV/movie characters?
Hi TQC, will you help me decide what book to read next?
I am torn between the new Margaret Atwood novel or starting George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series.
What say you, TQC?
Do you have any other suggestions? I read pretty much anything.
Edit: I'm going with Song of Ice and Fire. Thanks, guys! :)
Are there any human features that wouldn't normally be considered beautiful/handsome by normal standards, that you find attractive?
For instance, on girls I think gap-teeth (like Vanessa Paradis and Anna Paquin), freckles, crazy curly and/or red hair are freakin' adorable. And on guys: funky James-McAvoy-like noses, crooked smiles, sticky-out ears, and more on the skinny-side type bodies.
what movie should I see today?
I can see Paranormal activity, couples retreat or where the wild things are for free
or blind side or avatar for like 6 bucks.
I'd see any of these, but any recommendations?
ETA: Why do people need to give me shit about what I do? I asked my FB friends for any recommendations, and my aunt chimes in with "again?!" (because I'd posted something about seeing a movie last week, but didn't end up going) WTH... she's always commenting about my status.. when I thanked my parents for the new monitor my dad sent me, she asked "Didn't you just get a bike for Christmas?" yes, I did....the monitor was a free one my dad got, and he knew I didn't have a flat panel one.... blah.
So, a couple of weeks ago, my friend Duane mentioned on his FB that he had stopped a dad from beating (like, BEATING) his 14 year old kid (while calling him a lovely euphemism for a gay man) at an all ages show. Amongst the WAY TO GO! comments was one from a girl saying he also should have tried to see which car the guy was in and broke a cigarette off from the butt and stuck it in the loser's gas tank to really get revenge.
My tank door doesn't lock and neither does my cap, so I bought a locking one and have been hemming and hawing about if it is really needed. My thought was that, while I would never do anything like what the dude who spurred this convo did, people are malicious and vandalism is a real crime - and I have no line of defense to deter it at all. But I've never actually known anyone who had their tank messed with, not even second hand. And to put it on, I'd have to do some light damage to my car since my cap is attached by a plastic chord to the door so I don't lose it. Worth it if the cap is realistically needed, obnoxious if not.
So what say you? Do you guys know of anyone who's had something actually poured/placed in their tank? Any thoughts on what you might do if you were me? I tried Googling for some real life stats, but really didn't get much (which I admit might have been due to my not really knowing how to word the search best). Thanks!
Do you shave your legs?
What country do you live in?
If going #1 = peeing, and going #2 = pooping, what is going #3?
What's the most you've ever spent on one meal at a restaurant?
I just signed up to volunteer at this local hospital and I can't wait to start ;/
I am generally NOT, in any way, shape or form, a sci-fi/action movie kinda girl. Can you convince me to see Avatar?
Should I greet my SO (who I haven't seen in more than a month) in cute lingerie when he gets home today? Or is that a little too ...forward?
My child has been invited to a classmate's birthday party.
The mom handed me the invite and I asked at that point what the boy would like. She said, "Oh no gifts, we're just having a party to celebrate!"
It also says as much on the invite.
Do you abide and not get a gift?
I'm nervous about the whole thing.
We're making a card, but is that enough?
The party is today at the bowling alley. I kinda feel bad coming there empty-handed. Is it rude to bring a small gift anyways?
1.) What do you think about ROTC programs?
2.) I'm really trying to read more books this year. Recommend some? I'll read pretty much anything except I'm not too big on mystery novels. I just finished reading The Reader by Bernard Schlink and A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood, and I loved them both.
do you babysit? how much do you charge? or how much do you pay for a babysitter?
What items do you find most useful in Scribblenauts?
what does Cher need with 4 wheel drive in Beverly Hills?
What does it mean to show someone respect?
You're reading a book that you randomly picked off a shelf at the library (I judge my books by their covers) and when you're reading it in public someone asks what you're reading. You're sure they've never heard of it before (so it's not Twilight, Lord of the Rings, Catcher in the Rye, Frankenstein or some other well known classic)...
How do you go about explaining it to them? Do you just tell them the title? Do you give them the name and a brief synopsis? Do you just say "a book"?
You find a purse on the side of the road. Clearly someone has put it on top of their car and driven off. You open it and find a wallet, in which is identifying information for a house that is unfortunately quite far from your house. Inside is also a cell phone. There's money in the wallet. You, being an upstanding citizen, have no desire to take the money.
do you go through the phone beyond what is necessary to find someone who can find the owner? Do you read the text messages? Do you look at their photos?
I just had a peanut butter sandwich and my throat hurts now. Was the bread bad, or what?
If they added Furby technology to a RealSex doll, would this make you more or less inclined to purchasing one?
Do you have a funny joke/macro to share? Can we see?
What are you favorite games to play on the computer?
Whether they're online or not.. I'm bored on break from school and need something to play! I'd love to try Spore but I can't find a free trial that's like that actual game (they are all 'creature creature' things). My bf wants me to try WOW but I don't think I'd enjoy it. I used to play the regular Warcraft games back in the day and liked them.
Where can I download games for free?
What are some hobbies you've succesfully kept up?
I am the secretary for a club at school. It was decided that we would have a dinner at a restaurant together nearby the school. The president of the club emailed me and asked if I could drive her home after the dinner to which I said yes because she only lives 10 minutes away. Now, she emailed me again asking if I could drive the treasurer home as well and he lives about 25 minutes away from the restaurant and about 40 minutes away from my house. This would make my drive about an hour longer to get home after the dinner.
My questions are:
1) Is it fair of them to ask this of me?
2) Am I justified in being annoyed by this request?
3) How can I tell them to piss off? (Srs and nonsrs)
If a midget brags about having a large penis, does this make the idea of having sex with him more appealing?
A large penis on this tiny fellow would look like a third leg. Could it be easier then to just pretend that you're not banging a midget with a big schlong, but rather riding a centaur pony missing a leg?
Do you know if a standard blondie recipe would hold up being balled into cookies, or are the properties completely different?
Can anyone recommend a good stand mixer?
I have a craptacular Sunbeam brand one that I bought on sale a few years ago, but ack. I hate it. I'd love to have a Kitchenaid, but even if I did have the extra cash to spend on it, I think the husband would have a hissy fit.
Also I made a cake. Should I make white butter cream or chocolate butter cream frosting to go with it?
What's the most you would pay for collectibles/figures?
Have you ever replaced the battery or the hard drive of your ipod on your own?
I've had my ipod for about 4+ish years w/o any replacements and it's constantly freezing and making clicking noises when I try to listen to it and I always have to reset it. From the research I've done, it sounds like the hard drive is getting worn out and replacing it is the fix. The DIY tutorials I've seen have made it look incredibly easy and I was just wondering if it was that easy for you if you've done it. Did it fix the problem?
Also, my battery dies really fast now and I need to replace it, too. If you've replaced the battery on your own, was that easy, too?
I'm determined to keep this ipod as long as possible. I'll feel like apple's beat me if I have to get a new one. If I don't get a zune instead. W/e.
What band do you think has come closest to The Beatles in terms of cray cray fanbase?
What is your favourite herb or spice?
I'm about to drive 4 hours across the country and I'm bored of all the cds I have currently. I fancy making a mix for the trip. It's gonna be dark, crappy weather and mostly motorways so I want happy upbeat dancing songs I can bop my head to. ANY SUGGESTIONS?!
Okay for real, with your life experience, can you be friends with exs?
Do you have to have rules about what you can and cannot talk about? Or do you just not even bother?

Trying to sign on to Skype.
Would you consider someone poking holes in a condom with intentions to create a pregnancy without their partner knowing to be on par with rape?
Does your opinion change if these actions result in a pregnancy?
Why does Facebook chat suck baboon ass?
Why are all the girls I've been interested in lately in RL been so far out of my scene?
Will my Bengals beat the Jets tonight? Can fierce cats take down fighter planes?
The relationship and attraction questions below make me curious as to what character traits women are looking for exactly. This is what I have gathered so far, what is missing or wrong?
Don't Be This Guy: Clingy, Creepy, Fat, Mean, Aggressive, Submissive/Weak, Ostentatious, 30
Instead, Be This Guy: Confident/Strong, Nice, Not an Asshole/Stalker, Intelligent (ETA: Funny, Respectful, Affectionate, Creative.)
Also, what kind of hair do you ladies like on your man? I wore mine long (almost to shoulders) in high school, very short (buzzed -- kinda) in college. I need a change!
Is there a movie that you love, but would change something about?
What is it & why?
I just finally watched Inglourious Basterds. I loved it but honestly if I had my way it'd be 164 minutes of Basterds only. And a certain sexy ass character wouldn't fucking die half way through the movie!!!
how messy are your living quarters currently?
When people ask where you live, what do you usually say? Country, state, province, county, planet?
Just intrigued by people who say "UK" instead of "England" or "Alabama" instead of "USA"
Obviously depends who you're talking to, just mean generally.
SO WHERE DO YOU LIVE?
What is your favorite 'subject' of questions?
"The care of human life and happiness is the first and only legitimate object of good government." --- Thomas Jefferson
Do you agree with this quote?
How old does orchestral music have to be to be called Classical, and what is it called before then?
My smoke alarm/carbon monoxide detector just started shrieking like a banshee about 10 minutes ago. I ripped it out of the ceiling and it says:
Three long beeps followed by Fire!Fire! - there's fire
Four short beeps followed by WARNING CARBON MONOXIDE - there's CO
One chirp every 60 seconds - low battery
Nothing about one, prolonged, ear splitting shriek. Am I about to die?
Have you seen that Life After People show?
Does it freak you out?
How come they left out all the human carnage?
Got anything important to do tomorrow?
What are your plans for the next decade?
TQC, my brother and step-brother are hogging the front room, they're playing on their laptops and watching boring football on the TV. Would it be childish of me to go down and insist they change the channel, even though there's nothing I *particularly* want to watch?
The fact that they're playing on laptops shows they're not really interested in the telly, right?
Have you ever played oblivion/elderscrolls?
Do you have a favorite funny video?
Do you have a favorite commercial?
What's your favorite word?
What is your all-time favorite book?
Have you ever worn a fuzzy piece of clothing just to get someone to touch you? like... velvet, fleece, etc. Did it work?
I live in a house that has 2 apartments, one on the first floor, one on the second floor.
I live on the second floor, and EVERY DAY I can hear my neighbors down there running around (they're kids), being loud as shit for long periods of time.
Is it NORMAL for a 2nd floor to be able to hear stomping-noise from the 1st floor?????
Will you please share some neighbor horror stories so I will stop being so pissed off?
my neighbor makes bacon a LOT, I'm thinking 4-6 times a week at least. I'm tempted to tell him that's bad for his health.
What do your neighbors make a lot of?
Is there anything you make often than smells intense enough that your neighbors know?
Do you find face/ear licking sexy?
More than once I've seen it portrayed as such in music videos and movies and stuff and I don't get it. A guy licking my cheek just doesn't make me hot.
What is the worst pain you've ever felt?
what company provides your health insurance? are you happy with it? is it expensive? what are some good things/bad things about that company?
i've had kaiser permanente for a few years and i'm definitely due for an upgrade. i hate them. they're cheap but you get what you pay for apparently. i'm looking for ideas on who i might switch to.
TQC, I'm considering waxing my legs, as I'm sick and tired of shaving and having prickly hairs the next day. If you wax, what do you recommend using for a first timer? Also, do you have any tips to keep this process as painless as possible?
what are some things you do every day without fail, apart from breathing/eating or drinking (unless it's something specific)/going to the toilet?
probably a dumb question but....
i went to mtv.com and mtvU.com to see if i could watch the woodie awards and it has a link that says 2009 woodie awards:WATCH THE WHOLE THING ON DEMAND so i clicked that and it was just a clip. SOOOOOO does anyone know where i can actually watch the entire award show online? a link maybe or why the hell it wont work for me when i go there?
if not. show me the background of your cellphone? or what kind of cell phone do you have?
Only with a slight twist

Will people think I am a celebrity if I wear my sunglasses in the airport?
[Edit @ 11:56 P.M.]
To the Negative Nancies: I hate you all. You are all party poopers.
I probably won't wear my sunglasses in the airport. Wearing sunglasses annoys me anyways and it sounds like the airports are being extra cautious with security measures recently. There's no need to waste people's time with unnecessary worry and extra thorough baggage checks.
I'm a seventeen year old high school graduate with a few extra hours during the day. I don't drive, like doing artsy things, and am good at talking to people.

What's your favorite card game? (Either digitally or for real)
I enjoy BS and gin rummy in person, and rummy, blackjack, and poker on my DS.
I have this totally awesome book from WWI. It's filled with original artwork (poetry, watercolours, ink drawings) by local artists of that time. I want to learn more about it. My questions are: where would I go to find out more about it? Have you seen something similar (and if so, could you tell me about it)? What's a good way to preserve it? Right now it's hanging out in an unused drawer.
I tried to find the artists but I've had no luck thus far. :/
Why do my "White Facial Tissues" from 7/11 smell like chocolate?

What is the most recent food item you created that just made you go "WOW THAT IS AWESOME"?
I made hard-boiled eggs and instead of eating them with salt and pepper, I cut them in half, scooped half the yolk out, and replaced it with a green olive. OMG SO YUM
What should I make for my parents for breakfast tomorrow morning? I have access to eggs, bacon, bread, ham, some fresh vegetables, cheese, potatoes, lots of canned fruit, fresh oranges, and all the fixings for pancakes.
I'm thinking potato pancakes maybe, but I don't know. They are not picky in the least.
In your experience, what is the best bank? By "best" I mean most trustworthy/least likely to fuck you over.

Which major global leader (besides the one of your home country) is your favorite?

Cuter, Kittens or puppies?
