I find myself frequently attracted to people who look damaged. Mmm I love a good black eye.
so, do you hate cynicism, and do you agree?
2. Just for fun... Post some of your favorite childhood books! :D
what is your favorite song?
mine is, if push comes to shove, this.
What do I do with them?! They're taking up space in my room and I could be using those tubs for makeup, shoes, etc. But do I just throw them out? Would someone accept them as a donation? I don't even know.
All of them seemed fairly legitimate, but they keep emailing back that I need to apply using some sort of online application (for the most part from different sites).
Has anyone else had this problem?
Are any of them legitimate?
Its getting rather annoying.
What's your favorite snacky cake?
Do you know anyone who justifies bad habits or other things with 'It's just the way I am, I can't change who I am lol' or something similar? How do you deal with this person?
One of my roommates has terrible impulse control, and whenever we talk about it he always says something like that to justify it. It really bothers me because the only reason I am somewhat mentally stable and got over my psych problems was learning impulse control :\
Feel free to let me know how you dealt with it and/or your thoughts on the subject.
ETA: I was all, okay I'm going to wait at least a year before I get into something serious again! But now I'm like... okay if I want something, and I think its healthy for me, and good for the other person... why not, why try to stick to this arbitrary thing I decided on a while ago? Does that make sense? I guess I just want to be sure I'm thinking straight. It's been a while since I've been single so yeah, this feels very new for me.
LOL I've been coming to you guys for dating/relationship issues a lot lately. Lots of people have said well thought out things. Thanks TQC.
ETA: It is entirely possible he is kidding and we actually cannot talk because his cellphone has died on him on the train. He also promised he wouldn't do anything stronger than alcohol (which he has been avoiding lately because of me. Umm... yeah, I don't drink.). I'm mostly inclined to think it's something minor because he was laughing when he said it.
Should I take advantage of this and buy all the beautiful extravagant snacks that usually evade me or be a dutiful daughter and only buy the stuff on her list?
To be fair, she did say "You can get some stuff that you want too" but I'm not sure if CHOCOLATE ECLAIRS are included in that.
At work, I just got a raise as part of a pay restructure they're doing. I already get paid pretty well, considering, but every little bit helps in this economy. Since I have x number of credits, on our pay grid, I technically qualify for another $.50 raise. I asked my boss about this earlier and she said it would probably still be in effect, but that I should be happy with what I get now. She asked if that was more than I made with my old job (which she knows and has access to, on my application which stays on file for 2 years after i'm terminated), and I told her yeah, it was more from the beginning. She went on to say something about how I don't really need to put the info in for my extra $.50, then. My reaction: "buh!"?
I should still submit my transcript to payroll for my extra raise, right?
I know the difference between effect and affect (noun vs. verb) but I can always find a way to make either sound right, and always mess it up :[ Are there any words you do that with?
I have Verizon FiOS for internet and want to upgrade to this bundle they have now where you get FiOS-based TV and HDTV.
With all these new "high definition" systems/technologies out all at once, I have no clue what kind of t.v. to get. What things/features do I need to look for to make sure my t.v. is compatible with this FiOS HDTV? Mainly just the basics like what kind of plugs/cable hookups.
The FiOS website is almost impossible for me to navigate.
Should I send a letter or something?
What is a commonly believed myth that you know to be false?
Do you have any weird OCD habits when it comes to how you store/read/bookmark/other your books? (I always have to remove the dust cover. It bugs me so much when that thing slides and unfolds and dfkgasdf. Also, I like the look of a hardcover better without it; it's all solid-colour and plain and classic and makes me happy.)
2)How long would it take you to walk to the grocery store?
what's your favorite crayola color?
Fletch by Gregory McDonald.
If you DK/DC- If you had to be on a TV series, which would you want to be on?
Am I going to regret this? lol
What's the last movie you felt you wasted your time watching?
Why do people think this is okay?
What is your typical interview outfit? Does it depend on where you where you are interviewing?
What is this "Wegmans" you speak of? I have heard about it from people on forums, in articles, but never from anyone near where I live (I live near Chicago). I understand that it's a grocery store located in the eastern US, but the way people talk about it, it sounds like the holy grail of grocery stores.
What makes Wegmans so spectacular?
EDIT: From what you all have said, it sounds like if there were a Wegmans here, there would be no need to go to different grocery stores to get what we need (no need for Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Jewel, Dominicks, Aldi, Meijers...) . Hell, it almost sounds like there would be no need for restaurants with a Wegmans.......
....ok, you win. I'm jealous now. You enjoy your bisques, sushi, pizza, and disneyland-type escapades to Wegmans while the rest of us continue our never-ending search for the one-stop shop grocery store. ;P
possible right with full time job yeah?
Will you post a question from a song?
I don't know what to do/how to fix this, and I'd hate to have to skip questions on every quiz because it doesn't work. Anyone know what to do?
DK/DC: What's on your To Do list today?
Have you heard of any new tv shows that haven't premiered yet?
I just gave up on Heroes and I want something new, besides the others that I watch.
Is it safe to assume that if a cat and dog grow up together from being kittens/puppies, they'll be friends?
My cat was around 7 when we got our dog, so they never got along. I always find it weird when I see pictures of a cat and dog being friendly. Whenever I move out of my parents' house, I want to know how I can get my next two to be friends. :o Of course, there's always the possibility they won't like each other anyway.
I've just made one - it's baking atm. I hope it turns out! :)
If you could choose three countries in which you could live&work, which three would you choose? In order of preference, and of course you can include your current country.
Is this common? Maybe in the larger cities?
They've only been open about six months now. I've never heard of anything like it, but I think it's a brilliant idea and hope they make lots and lots of money.
What should I do today?
My cousin is getting married, and she said she's requesting everyone dress in "cocktail attire." I could ask her, but that would probably turn into another episode "let's pretend beetle_breath is a dress up doll" (I'll spare you the boring backstory of our crappy relationship)
If that question doesn't sufficiently grip you, what's your favourite breakfast food?
i spend 15%.
what do you spend?
I can sort of get the beginning of that trill, enough to pass maybe if I were speaking a language that used rolled Rs, but I have not ever been able to continually roll an R like almost everyone I know can. Just the constant Rrrrrrrrrr like a motor or something. I guess my tongue is broken. I even had a friend end up telling me to just stop trying after they tried to explain how it's done.
But it sounds so cool and I hate that I can't do it!
Are there any vocalizations you wish you could make but can't?
and when you're so hungover you can't move without wanting to puke but you can't because you're hungry?
but you can't feed yourself because you can't get up?
because you can't move without puking?
And you didn't sleep very well?
so blah blah blah i'm going to college blah blah need a new laptop blah blah you don't care.
anyway. the debate is always mac v. pc. obviously, since i am asking this question, i do not have a mac. (i've noticed there's a very definite once you go mac you never go back mentality)
so. MAC OR PC, TQC?
obviously i expect a lot of "mac!!!!!13#$@@!!" answers, but why? why, in your opinion, are they better than PCs?
if PC, what do you like about them? what kind do you have? is it reliable, etc?
i've used windows XP on a dell inspiron my whole life. i am uneducated in the ways of the computers.
thanks in advanceeee.
( Collapse )
Have you ever done this or known people who did it?
What do you think of it?
Keeping in mind I live in Canada, do you know any good of the good/cost effective ones?
Is there some sort of mid point between the two? I've seen manicures in the past that looked like they just used acrylic on the natural nail, didn't use tips, and then painted them. Do they actually do this? If so, what is it called so I can tell the manicurist what I want without looking like an idiot?
DKDC: What is your favorite Firefox plug-in?
What does a "good" SAT score look like number wise?
What's a movie you could watch over and over again? For me Titanic and Little Miss Sunshine.
Favorite old school computer game? *You might guess what mine is*
I know the general idea is "black" or "nothing" but when I actually focus I see various little things when I close my eyes, it's usually always the same, and when I was talking to my friends, they each had their own little things, too. Obviously, I'm talking about what we tend to default to, not what we choose to see.
Like when I close my eyes, I sometimes see this weird texture-type thing. It has like a reddish/brownish and blackish color to it, but its indistinct enough that I can't picture it exactly. And the texture moves. There's also this small shape/indent that I can see, but not focus on. And I've recognized it for at least 8 years, though a few years ago it changed a little.
Have you noticed anything like that when you close your eyes or am I sort of crazy?
[I get the piss taken out of me for calling my new boy that]
I have lots of mince to use today and a supermarket ooo..30 seconds walk away from my room..what should I make that isn't spag bol/lasanga or fajitas?
Do you feel part of your generation or different from it? Why?
I'm a cuspie (born in 1984), but I've always felt more GenX than anything (even though I missed it by 3-4 years).
For your laptop and/or cell phone do you
I, personally, was told that it preserves the battery's life if you let it die all the way before charging it again soo that's what I do with mine. Does anyone know if that's true, though?

If you don't have one, what's the last good movie you saw?
Tonight, I have a few options as far as plans go, and I need some help deciding!
I can either...
a) go out to dinner with my mom and co-workers.
pros: I like my co-workers and my mom. Free meal.
cons: I'll have to leave the restaurant by 9:00 because I'm not 21 and they're a bar as well.
b) go to a theatre to see my friend's band play.
pros: I'll get to see the guy I'm sort of crushing on. My friend's band is good.
cons: I just saw them play last night. It's $7 and I don't have much money. I don't have anyone to go with.
What should I do? ):
What are you doing tonight?
What's the most fun thing you've done this week?
Example: I was watching A River Runs Through It and Norman was talking about how his father only made $1,800 a year as a minister in the 1920s and I want to know if the story was set now, how much that would be

Anyone know what this song is? Or happen to have this week's Jersey Shore on DVR?
I've tried super Walmarts, Publixes, Food Lions, and Walgreenses. If you've seen these IRL, what store was it???
Secondly, know how schools/universities always have heaps of student organizations to join? What do you do after you graduate? I've got a job, but I'd like to interact with people with whom I don't work. I'm not interested in church groups either, and I'm not thinking of sports right now. Are there 'young adult' organizations out there? How does one find them?
dk/dc: Where is a good place to apply for your first job? I've applied at Kroger's and Bigg's so far. (Both are grocery stores.)

Hypothetically speaking, would you survive prison?
Is there anyway to go into a maximum security prison and just be quiet and do your time without getting fucked around with?
I am aware that religion is maybe not our best invention, but why do so many people rather blame religion than the people who do horrible things?
In the way we understand morals/ethics is it really possible to blame abstract things for things people do?
If so, how does that work? Dont we find human beings behind every abstract thing anyways?
I think that blame is only to be put on people but I've seen people putting blame on abstract things quite a lot, so I am a bit confused.
ETA: Thanks a lot for your answers! I now think the following: Abstract concepts cannot be held accountable for the actions of human beings, even though they can influence us and our decisions.
If you don't care, what would you buy if you had all the money you needed and your bills were paid etc.?

Pictures, links, etc. welcome.
Have fun with it. <3
Also, what colour bra should I buy? I have a couple red ones, a black one, a grey one, and a blue one. I don't like white/nude bras, either.

Or do you think it's ethically wrong?
