(if you feel like explaining what cards you have in your wallet that would be rad too)
In my bag:
Two wrinkled-up Netflix movies in their envelopes
A green rubber band
A half-drunk Dasani water
A 16 GB flash drive
A bottle of Dramamine pills
My wallet has a lock of someone's hair, a credit card, a debit card, my driver's license, my high school ID, my Brown guest ID, my old RISD ID, a bunch of punch-cards for local pizza and sushi places, a video store membership card, a business card for a Chinese restaurant in NY, a bunch of receipts, and some cash.
Whats the stupidest thing that has happened to you at a store lately?
What flat-iron do you use?
Should I let my husband read my diaries from hs? He found them in a box the other day and has been pestering.
(He features heavily in it, not all of it flattering. Another person I was seeing then also features. He knows I dated her, but not more than minor details. I don't think he'll freak out or be rude or anything. But the teasing could be merciless and long term.)
eta... he's not going to be cranky about details, I just don't like to talk about it b/c it wasn't the healthiest relationship I've ever had.
eta: LOLOL not sexual stuff, i'm not into that ;D
green leaf lettuce
I haven't cooked with some of these things before, so I was hoping that you guys could point me to some tasty recipes that involve one or more of these items. What would you make with these ingredients? I also have some monterey jack cheese and mango chutney in my fridge that i'd like to use soon, so bonus points for recipes that use those. :)
Who more respectable?
Who do you respect more as singers?
Who do you respect more?
I'm so obsessed with TVTropes that I sometimes find myself describing events my own life using tropes. The other day, I recall telling a friend of mine, "So, after 3 years of UST with my best friend and lots of having to say 'He's not my boyfriend!', we finally had a relationship upgrade in the form of a now or never kiss, and it was pretty much a crowning moment of awesome." She looked at me like I had feet growing out of my head. Oh well.
Tell me I'm not the only one who does this, TQC. Tell me it's not so bad.
In general, do you ever find yourself using weird/obscure internet terms in everyday conversation?
what colour would you choose? i picked white, my sister picked black, my brother picked silver.
leather seats or cloth seats? i personally like cloth seats better because they don't heat up like leather seats do, and we live in a crazy hot country. it's always such a pain to get into a car that's been parked in the sun.
does anyone want to talk about nail polish?

Post your suggestions. I'll pick from my favorite nouns/adjectives.verbs/etc, then post the mad lib when it's complete.
Srsly, it'll be fun.
what is your profile picture on facebook/myspace currently?
What is the sexiest thing you've ever heard someone say in your favorite accent?
Inspired by watching Leverage last night, in which Sophie said "Go get 'em, tiger" and it was just totally OMG-gotta-change-my-underwear hot in that British accent of her's.
DK/DC, what's your Facebook profile picture?
( Collapse )
Tell me about the team/band? Why are they no longer around?
(ETA: Only if you bought the shirt while the team/band was still around... that Ramones tshirt that you bought three days ago at Hot Topic does not count.)
This post brought to you by my Albany-Colonie Diamond Dogs sweatshirt.
Do you think living together prematurely could damage an otherwise healthy relationship in its developing stages?
What are you, personally, most likely to have sex with?
Whenever I wake up and have to be somewhere early, I feel nauseous and end up puking (like this morning, I had to wake up at 7 and be somewhere at 8). WHY? Does this happen to anyone else? Does anyone know of anything I can do to make the nauseousness go away? I start school in a couple weeks and I'd like to be not puking on everyone.
What's the last thing you learned, TQC?
What was the last thing to "make you feel your age"?
I know, it's tl;dr.
Have you ever had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic? I think I'm having an allergic reaction to Bactrim right now :/
What are your plans for today?
a) Carry on living together, which you really want to do, and rent, which would be at least £350 (around $600, i think?) each per month
b) Both move back home with your parents, which you really don't want to do, but would be rent-free, or near enough.
What would you do?
Are you bored right now?
2)What does Rush Limbaugh have against Haiti?
3)What do you think about Quiznos?
Dkdc- How would you rate your happiness on a level of averageness? Say whatever level of happiness most people are, that's 5. Where are you on a 1-10 scale, 10 being high because its high.
Me: 8 or 9. I think you'd have to be on a pretty solid Dalai Lama level to be a 10. ;P Which I am not yet at.
I graduated in December with my master's degree and haven't worked since the summer since I had to do a full-time, unpaid internship the last semester. I don't have a real job, but I'm a part-time nanny now making eh money. My husband and I had to borrow money from his mom to help us through the last several months of my master's program.
That being said, my 1st wedding anniversary is in May. We want to go on a trip because we haven't been anywhere since our honeymoon and are both kinda depressed with our situation. We found an amazing deal on a cruise, but will have to put it on our credit card. Is it worth the debt to take a much needed vacay?
or if there are no vet tech's in TQC, are there any blogs you can suggest? i'm not really looking for q&a blogs about people already in the field, i'd like to read about someone going through the process or just a general discussion board.
if you have no idea:
at what age did you stop going to the toy section at stores/asking your parents to take you to toys-r-us?
Is your coverage good? Had any bad experiences?
I'm sick, and was planning on spending my day happily sleeping on the couch, but I had to run to the ATM to make a deposit first. On my way there, the lady in front of me decided to SLAM on her brakes as soon as the light turned yellow. I hit mine as well, and would have stopped, but the road was slick and I slid into her bumper, just BARELY tapping her.
She was nice enough, but insisted on calling the police for the report, so now my perfect driving record is RUINED!
What can I do to cheer myself up?
To whom are you grateful?
Say I want to apply somewhere like a supermarket. How/who should I ask for an application? How soon should I return it? How/to whom should I give the application?
I like to think I'm not actually /as/ clueless as all that might lead me to appear, but knowing I'm going about things the right way always helps to bolster confidence.
What's the hardest class you've ever taken? If it was in a continuing subject like math or science, did you take a class afterwards that wasn't as hard?
But if you want to say in TQC, that's cool too.
What was your last "I am never doing that again!" moment?
( Collapse )
have any of you done this? How do you like the finished product?
Edit: What language? What tool(s) did you/they use?
Also, I was trying to edit the damn thing. The original question was "would you work a job that makes you miserable for more pay, or a job that makes you happy for a couple dollars and hour less?"
my edit was supposed to be this: I crunched the numbers and in my situation its about $200 less a month than i make now (after taxes), but im super super depressed and hate my life because of this job. also, the hours are waaaaaaaay better at the new job. Does this change your answer???
Have you ever been told you resemble a celebrity or anybody that we'd have heard of?
I've had the "True love always," and "the classy lady" and their Thanksgiving special, but I want to try something else.
My friend is having a baby in a couple of weeks, and I'm going to be in the room with her and I get to cut the cord! Another friend suggested I should yell, "Snap into a slim jim, OH YEAH!" when I do it. What's something else I could say at that moment?
Have you ever lived alone?
Did you like it?
Was it worth it?
Should I do it?
My boyfriend would be moving in too, but the first 4 months or so I'd handle by myself.
DK/DC, will you post cute, ferret-related pictures, videos, or stories?
Who do you remove?
xx_kathy and fieryphoenix cannot answer this question.
What I dont get is why he wanted her contact information, and what he could do with it?
Other than stalking/raping/killing her.
She gave him her name, address and phone number.
This is a picture of me. This is another picture of me using Lifetime's makeover doohickey. How do I look with bangs? Do you think I can pull it off if I blow dry them everyday?
Is that normal? What causes it? My mom's 56 and has firmer skin than me :(
What did you win? (& was there a prize?)
Should obesity be considered a disability?
1. When you are going to unjinx someone, do the three times you say that person's name need to be consecutive, or can the saying of the name be mixed up with other words?
2. Team Conan or Team Jay?
12 F, in Portland last month. I think it's kind of funny that I've been in New England and Chicago this winter, but Portland was the coldest. Hottest was 99 F in San Francisco, go figure.
To which states, provinces, countries etc have you traveled in the past 12 months? Any upcoming trips planned?
I've been to Nevada, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Texas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New York, and Illinois. Going to The Netherlands, UK, France, Ireland, and as of today probably Haiti.
Learning all the horrific details about serial killers for my Forensics class has been messing me up big time ):
Is anyone here a raw foodist? Or enjoys eating/making raw food?
I just got a raw desserts cookbook and it's like, I could actually make these recipes. Take four ingredients, mix together, you're done! Cookbooks are usually very scary and I'm afraid of the oven >_>
What would you buy your boyfriend? I'm looking to spend around $100. Thanks!
Due to the recent NBC late night controversy and the final decision that Conan will be giving back the Tonight Show to Leno, a crazed Conan fan murders Jay Leno. Who will take over the Tonight Show? (Yes, these are your only options.)
I looooove ribbon candy (xmas) and CADBURY CREME EGGS (easter).
PS-Summer Savoury is an herb... we put it in like, stuffing? So apparently it's an Atlantic Canada thing, so I guess that's not too weird. BUT THE FLOUR???
ask them, and let everyone else try to give you answers that you [hopefully] have not heard before.
Are any of you familiar with school related photography? Please share!
WILL YOU YELL SOMETHING AT THEM TO MAKE THEM STFU?
THEY'RE REALLY UGLY, TRASHY MOFOS IF THAT HELPS. THEY DON'T LIKE TO PAY THEIR GARBAGE BILL.
Also, those of you who have English as a second or later language, what was the hardest thing to learn?
This question is sponsored by my essay and an empty library.
2)How do they get through the day without one?
3)Is networking a crock of shit?
I love breakfast. I'm eating breakfast for dinner.
Fellow queers: Is coming out to people IRL a major issue for you? If so, how long do you generally wait before you do it? If not, got any advice for someone who wants to stop freaking out about it so much?
dk/dc/other: Is there anything in your life that's a huge deal for you even though most people would take it for granted? What is it?
Today is my Poppy's 2 yr anniversary and I honestly didn't realize the date was coming up until I spoke to my mom today. But he was so vividly in my dream last night telling me that wherever I needed him I'd find him. Very bizarre!
srs and non srs welcome.
You're at home one day when there's a knock at your door. Upon opening the door, you come face to face with Bruce Springsteen. "Hey, I don't mean to inconvenience you, but can I use your bathroom? I just happened to be visiting my friend next door when the 'urge' struck me and I'm afraid I can't hold it much longer. May I?"
Let's say he talks you into letting him use your john. When he's done, he comes out and thanks you and he's on his way. You inspect the bathroom. The 'Boss' took a big dump in your toilet and didn't even flush. What do you do?
What book(s) are you currently reading?
If so, what did you think about that?
On a completely unrelated note, if you were disabled to the point of being unable to work but despite explaining the situation thoroughly multiple times, a friend insists on trying to find work for you, what would you do?
Mine: The Sichuan earthquake in China, a mom stood on all fours over her baby when their building collapsed. The baby survived, but the mom didn't. The mom had a cell phone with her and on it she wrote a message to her baby, saying that she loved him.
If you don't know/care, what were the best/worst times you spent in college?
(Yes, I know they already struck a deal! But they can always renegotiate!)
If not, Are you a fan of Leno or Conan?
also, do you have a favourite conan moment?
Mine is probably the zipline or the last time Jim Carrey was on his new show and they were talking about penises (sp? idfk) and Jim Carrey laid across Conan's desk and scared the mess out of him!
Or the Jon/Stephen/Conan Fight.
2- What does your Facebook status say?
I'm quite fond of Kenneth, myself.
What colour socks are you wearing? Mine are kelly green :D
I'm looking for somewhere new to sign up, my current ones are getting boring.
The options when I right-click on a picture are as follows:
back, reload, bookmark this page, save page as, send link, view background image, select all, view page source, and view page info.. But no "Save as" or "Save Image As"
I could have sworn that i've done this before. Am I missing something here?
I lost a job a few years ago and I pretty much just burst into tears
what ~new~ food have you tried recently?
how was it?
Do you look down on vegetarians?
edit to clarify: I eat mostly veggies with occasional seafood. Sometimes I catch snippets of media (like Anthony Bourdain or the aforementioned Ms. Powell) poking fun at vegetarians for being unadventurous, tree hugging wieners or whatever.

My brother and I were watching Back to the Future III and he turned to me and asked "You think that little kid (the marshall's son) is the principle or his dad?" And I'm like "wait, what?"
I have seen this movie a million times and never realised that Marshall Strickland and Principle Strickland were from the same family.
It happens a lot with movies I saw first when I was a kid.
Which is your favourite Back to the Future? I like the first one pretty well, but the third is my favourite.
ETA: We are currently considering "Eleanor and Rigby", "Mary Kate and Ashley" (although I hate that one), and "Samson and Delilah".
dk/dc, What are you watching right now?
Which computer or online games are nice for 2 players?
edit: thank you for all your comments. i am just stupidely fussy and you've convinced me that if ever i had a chance to just suck up all my food issues and try something new, now is the time. so thank you.
How can you tell?
Is there anything creepier than a purity ball? I would die if I had to dance with my dad at a virgin party.
I am considering meeting someone that I met online this weekend. I'm a girl and I am meeting a guy. I have made it clear that I just want to be friends and that I am not looking for a relationship so hopefully that will be respected- from what I can tell of this guy so far, I think he will respect it. Our encounter will be in a very public place- a restaurant and then a pool hall but I am still nervous about something bad happening.
What safety measures should I put into practice? I know that I should definitely tell someone where I am going and when I plan to be back, and plan to call them when I am back and if they haven't heard from me they should call me.
How worried should I be? I kind of have a little bit of male issues... it's hard for me to feel safe around males in general when it's just one on one but I know this may be a bit irrational on my part. I am excited about meeting this person, he seems like a really cool guy and it seems like he could potentially be a good friend. I am not getting a creepy or scary feeling from HIM, but I do kind of have one about the situation- it would be the same no matter what guy I would be meeting up with. What advice do you have for me?
On tonights episode with Liz Lemon's gay cousin Randy Lemon... who is the guy who plays him?
He looks so familiar and I cant place him.
In the UK people who like maybe 30-40 miles away from each other will have completely different accents, do you get that in the US?
dk/dc- What are your favourite and least favourite accents?
What are your favorite apps?
What's your beauty secret?
He's 21, I'm 22, too young to get married still? What age do you think is appropriate?
Who do you think is the creepiest child?
