Right now I'm fed up with my job, fed up with my school work, fed up with my friends and INCREDIBLY pissed at my boyfriend. Could you please post me your favourite pun/one liner/quote/macro/ANYTHING to cheer me up?
for me, anything above about 40F.
Did someone teach you?
Can you (easily) knot another person's tie without standing behind them to do it? To clarify, could you knot a necktie while facing the wearer?
Thank you ;)
My mother's Norwegian. My father's the generic South American mestizo mutt. My husband is indigenous Australian through his father and South Island Maori through his mother.
I suspect we'll have some pretty cool looking kids!
[Edit: I've been eating and drinking water since I posted but it hasn't lessened AT ALL I hate my head =(]
And if you don't use them at all, why not?
Apparently the fact that I updated facebook with an "Uno filed for bankruptcy? lol" status made some girl I used to work with reaaaaally upset, even though she found new employment a month ago as well (because of the fact the restaurant where we worked sucked). So now she said she can't be FB friends with me anymore. Which basically made me lol again.
Would it change my bitchiness rating if you found out that the company will basically be ok after the restructuring of debt? There is a small chance they might not make it, but all the articles I've read have said they believe the restaurant chain will be surviving and there aren't any plans to close locations at this time.
Personally, I'm rating myself at about a 6 on the bitchiness scale. Maybe a 7. But I'm nowhere near the spawn of satan level 10 my ex-coworker seems to think, at least in my opinion. This company treated others and myself like we were nothing, and I think karma is the true bitch.
TL;DR - Short Version - "I used to work for Company X. They treated me (and other employees) poorly. I left, and now almost a year later, they're filing for bankruptcy. The fact that I find that amusing makes me satan, y/n?"
2. Did you ever write an undergraduate thesis? Did it suck the life out of you? How did you cope?
and, has anyone ever been to group therapy meetings? what were your experiences with them? and how do those work?
(other than this one)
On recommendation of my little brother, I was listening to "Gives you hell" just now, and I want some similar empowering/"i dont need you, ha!"/"sucks to be you, douchebag" music. I'm cool with almost any genre.
What do you recommend?
Do people who don't know how to wash dishes give you a headache?
eta: before this, she's always drunk out of her water dish, and we've had her eleven years. her sister, also eleven, isn't doing this.
eta2: this cat also used to drink out of the toilet.
dk/dc: there are some blogs/other sites that i'd like to follow, but their rss feeds aren't on lj, so i need a good... feed reader? i'm not sure what they're called but they're the things that collect all your rss feeds in one place. i currently have a google account and i believe they have one, but i'm looking for specific reccommendations. not all the blogs are part of the same site, so i can't just like sign up at blogger and read them all there.
Or you were eating something so good that you burp to make more room?

How do you PERSONALLY deal with it without insurance, medication, or the ability to see a doctor?
Is this ringing and pain going to go away? When?? Srs & non-srs answers plz.
On a related note, if you're performing at an open mic type event and you insult your entire audience (the basic jist of the insults: "Y'all some haters. I drove three hours to get here. Fuck all y'all and y'all lame-ass jewelry," when the applause was less than enthusiastic), how surprised would you be if you got jumped in the parking lot after the event?
And last but not least, what are your plans for tonight and/or this weekend?
Thing is, I kind of want to see if I can find out who stole my card. I went out to eat the night before they used my card so I kind of suspect it was there but I'm obviously not sure. If I call the florists do you think they'll give me more info on who made the order or what they bought, etc? What would be the best way to go about this? Keep in mind, all I have is the card #.
And yes, I already reported this to my bank and have a new card, I just want to see if I can find the fucker that did this myself lol
DK/DC - Have you ever been a victim of identity theft?
Would you rather be beautiful or smart?
Not promoting other communities or your little ~*icon journal*~ or whatever, but other stuff.
Well, my item wasn't there, and they showed me a catalog of all the items they had received back...and I couldn't recognize mine in them. I really liked this one, and I'd really like it back, signed or not signed. I emailed the venue and asked if they had it, but no response yet.
TQC, will I ever see my item again? How can I be more forceful in getting it back? Have you figured out what my item was, yet?
If you have NO clue, just give me some pictures of your favourite male model.
Have you ever been asked out while shopping by someone who worked in the store you were in? Do you think it was/is inappropriate?
Should I have pizza or soy burgers for lunch?
Mine is "deram det non est alligatum, et deus erat deram", but I have no idea what it means. Anyone know?

What's your roommate situation right? Do you get along? If you live alone, do you ever get lonely?
I know nothing about cameras, or what to look for in one. I'd like one that is simple to use and high quality. The pictures I take are not artsy or anything like that, just of my kid, pets, parks...things like that.
What camera do you use? If you'd like to share a picture you took with said camera I'd like to see it.
What should I be looking for in a camera?
What camera would you recommend for me? Oh, under $550 as well.
So, TQC, what are your favorite Wiki pages?
2)For omnivores: Have you ever butchered, cooked, and/or eaten an animal that you killed yourself? If you were in the position where you could either go without meat/fish or you would have to kill an animal for food (assume you do have some direction on this and don't have to completely figure out how to do it on your own), which would you do?
How terrible of a parent is this person?

eta: this is what my statement has to say about grace periods. can someone decode it for me?
"If you pay in full this statement's New Balance Total by its Payment Due Date and if you paid in full this statement's Previous Balance in this statement's billing period, then you will have a Grace Period during the billing cycle that began the day after this statement's Closing Date on the Purchase portions of this statement's New Balance Total."
relevant details: my last bill was due jan 7, i paid it off between a $50 payment on jan 8 and a larger payment on jan 11. if it matters, i made a $50 payment on the previous bill before it was due, but did not pay it off.
I got 2 about to begin. First, I need a new deck because our current one is not child-safe and very unstable. But we can't tackle that one until summer time (snowy right now). The plan is to rip it all out and rebuild it ourselves with a kit from Menards or something. The second project is our upstairs bathroom. Linoleum, leaky toilet, and soggy window.. pretty much everything is going to come out and be replaced, but on a budget :P That is going to happen in the next month here. Any advice appreciated!
Has anything like this ever happened to you? Aside from deployment with the military/camping, have you ever been without water for a long stretch of time?
If not, why do you think we are having so many posts about exes?
[Edit: I informed them that I could see through their scamming lies and am not interested.

What would you think of me if I was your neighbor?
We're a web design company called "GeekPower". Our image is young and vibrant (our color is a bright green) and a little goofy (our "mascot" is a Geeky looking guy giving two thumbs up. We have him HUGE on our front office window. We call him Doug.)
What is a clever catch phrase I could put on the cards that reflect our company but also have something to do with the fact that the card is a catapult?
Does anyone know the answer? If so, what is it?
DK/DC, have you ever gotten yourself some Internet justice? Tell me about it!
Where was the last place you went out to eat? What did you get? Was it super delicious?
Have you ever had tripe? What did you think?
I had it for the first time the other night. It was flavorless and rubbery. Is that normal?
Do you turn the knob on the dryer to finish drying their clothes and then dump them in the basket?
Or do you put the wet clothes into the basket / washing machine while yours are drying?
Or do you take their wet clothes and dump them out in their bedroom?
Question Part II:
If you came home to see that your roommate had dumped your wet clothes on your bed to start her laundry, would you be annoyed?
And yes, this did happen to me last night. :)
3)What's a comfort food for you?
I noticed later that night that I had a sore throat and now two days later the back of my tongue is swollen and it's difficult to swallow. Am I having some sort of reaction, and do you think it's related to the weed?
It's not unbearable, but should I go to the doctor now, or wait another day to see if it gets worse?
Have you ever had any sort of reaction that made your tongue swollen?

What was the weirdest dream you ever had?
I have all the basics (flour, sugar, vanilla, baking powder/soda, pans in all shapes and sizes, etc.) and am reasonably experienced in the kitchen. What should I make? What would you like to eat if you were sad?
Don't know or care:
What do you use tea tree oil for?
Like me, I just realised that I have a pretty large collection of Lynx body spray (apparently it's called Axe in the US & has a pretty bad reputation). I just counted & I have 11 cans of it, 3 of them being the same scent lol. But they were on special! I had to get them!
How would you interpret this? Is he a lying jerkface that doesn't want me back? An idiot who doesn't know how to run a business? Or is there a more reasonable explanation for this discrepancy? I've never had a business of my own, but it seems mighty odd to post help wanted ads when you don't want help. This guy was always really nice to me, so I'm hoping the great TQC machine can provide a better answer than "he hates you" =(
(Potato salad & chai latte is kind of a bizarre and mildly gross combination; but I didn't notice it at all during lunch...)
Black, no sugar.
Where/what was the best cup of coffee you've ever had?
This place in Maryland that I can't ever find again. I think it was called Baltimore Coffee.
How many Starbucks are within walking distance of your house?
Seven. I'm not kidding. -.-
What is your favorite coffee drink?
I've had a really awkward few weeks tracking down old teachers and bosses to ask them to write letters for me, and I'm wondering if from now on I should just ask them to write sort of generic recommendation letters for me that I can just have and keep on file, for whenever an application or something calls for them.
I will pre-emptively apologize for how shittily this is worded.
But they require that you have previous experience at another Italian restaurant in order to be considered for a job there.
Does that make any sense?
I can kind of understand a cook/chef but is there something different about being a waiter/waitress, host, dishwasher and/or bus person in an Italian restaurant compared to any other restaurant that i'm not aware of?
Which organization has as it's logo a raised fist holding a rifle, and the moto "Only Thus" under it? Or am I mixing and matching logos in my confusion? Does anyone know? It's starting to bug me that I can't remember this.
Does it depend on the band or type of band that is playing?
Alternatively, someone just called for my boss and asked if he'd already left to meet with his probation officer. TQC, why is my boss on probation?
2. If you haven't been able to sleep for last 2 or 3 nights because you've been coughing so hard, and you just got a prescription filled for cough syrup + codeine for which the intended purpose is to make you sleep through the night, and it's 5:41pm, would you take some of it now? Or would you wait till it's closer to "bedtime?"
3. Say you're updating your resume. If you got "let go" from your most recent job after less than a month, would you put it on your resume? Assume that that position was in the same field that you're looking for a new job in.
What was the last thing you did way in advance?
ETA: If you could give me a recipe that would be great too!
ETA2: Thanks for all the suggestions guys! I love having so many options! :]
Do you want to?
Do you know if it hurts?

For all of you non customs agents, what would you most like to get in the mail tomorrow?
If you were single and attracted to some random person and they told you on your first date that they spend the majority of their free time playing neopets, would you go on a second date with them?
I know you all hate computer questions, so for those that don't know or care:
What is something your own gender does that drives you fucking crazy?
What are the spices you use most often?
Asked because I can either get an apartment now and a car in a few months or get a car now and an apartment in a few months. If I get the apartment I can always walk or take the bus since it isn't a very big town but I really hate the bus. If I get the car I have to live with my parents another couple months and listen to them fight all the damn time. Oh and something else I should mention is riding the bus is free for me since I am a student.
So TQC what would you do?
ETA: they're not as short as they look, I just have stupid long legs.

Don't know or care, does your local Chinese food joint offer American food as well? Have you ever tried it?
I ordered General Tso's and shrimp spring rolls. Boring, I know.
Oh, and what's some good music? I need some new music. I like a lot of music, but I am not too interested in rap atm. Maybe something fun to drive or drink to.
A bunch of people on my facebook lists have been announcing that they're due late September/early October, which means they're 3 or 4 weeks pregnant right now. It just seems so early to be telling everyone. One girl has posted about pregnancies three or four times in the last eight months, and has lost all of them, sadly.(There are other related complications)
Are miscarriages simply less frequent these days, or has social networking created a world where we want to share!share!share! every moment of our lives, no matter how personal?
When's the earliest you'd announce your pregnancy on a social networking site?
I have to think it's like my relationship - if it came up, cool and I'll respond to it. If not, I don't see the need to mention it. But then, I'm not really someone who posts a lot about my life on social networking sites
I bought the $1 I needed to get to work on my MetroCard with my credit card. The MetroCard never registered that I added any money to it at all, so I was super pissed. Then four or five days later (when ALL of my charges are instantaneous), I took out my remaining cash balance to pay rent. Today, I see I am overdrawn $0.55 and Chase, y bank, charged me $25 for that.
Also, one of my co-workers told me one thing, I relayed the message to my office manager. When my office manager asked my co-worker about it, she said she never told me what she said, getting me in trouble. What the fuck.
What made you happy today?
I met one of my favorite musicians and got paid to do so.
What will you name your future children? If you already have kids, what did you name them?
I want to name my first daughter Regina Nicole so bad. Regina after Regina Spektor/Audrey Hepburn's character in Charade, Nicole being my BFF's middle name.
I'll let my babby daddy pick the name if it's a boy.
