Anything you want to complain about?
Anything you want to brag/you're excited about?
I want to hear your story!
His name was Kyle, we had a pretend wedding in Pre-K.
tell me about how great or how awful you are with kids. anecdotes are A+.
I just completed my 100th game of freecell with a 100% win record.
Will you describe last time you were proud of a
Isn't Glee amazing?
I burp a lot. It hurts my stomach when I don't burp, and I do loud manly burps, not petite feminine burps. Could I have some sort of medical issue or just a gassy stomach?
Why would anyone ever do that to an animal, even for bullshit experimental purposes? Do you support animal testing?
Excuse me, I am now nauseous/infuriated.
Is there anyone in this world that you would, without hesitation, kill for? If so, who?
DK/DC how much do you love cheese? What is your faaaaaaavorite kind of cheese?
Yes, of course I mean to defend them from harm.
The saga of my housemate continues.
After getting rid of her "friend" who stalked her and controlled her every move, she found a new boyfriend. He seems like a nice guy, but yesterday evening, they kind of... let out that she wants to kick out our other housemate and let him move in with us instead (she does have the power to do this and there's nothing I can do to stop it except for convincing her of not doing this). They met 2 weeks ago.
TQC, help me! How do I tell her that this is a really really really bad idea?
Do you think it would be okay at this point if I just stopped taking it cold turkey, since I haven't experienced any negative effects after 2 full days?
I know I should theoretically ask a doctor but mine told me I could wean myself off it whenever I wanted (although she suggested doing it over a period of two weeks) and that she thought I probably wouldn't have a bad withdrawal.
Will you go to www.urbandictionary.com and tell us what the definition of your first name is? (just pick any one off the first page of results)

Three days after applying for the card, I received an offer in the mail for another credit card. This one had the same zero interest until 2011 on purchases. However, this one's APR is 12.9% after January 2011. Obviously, this is better.
Should I apply for the second one, and cancel the first one if I get it? Would that hurt my credit?
If you haven't filed yet: What are you waiting on/for? How much do you anticipate you'll get/pay out?
I'm going to be getting 4k this year, holy crap! That's moving money right there.
DK/DC: Have you tried the Throwback-style sodas that use sugar instead of corn syrup? Which do you prefer?
I wish I could find the Dr. Pepper Heritage somewhere, I usually prefer sugar sodas to syrup.
Will you tell me about songs that make you happy every time you listen to them? Videos are appreciated.
Dearest TQC, are there ANY religious holidays coming up this Sunday, February 7th, 2010? Specifically Pagan, but perhaps she has multiple religions, so I'll accept anything as a possibility.
If she's observing a holiday, it should be all day, yes? I have a feeling she just wants to switch her night for my midday shift so she doesn't have to do all the closing work.
If she really is lying, what should I say/do to call her out? She is really buddy-buddy with my boss, unfortunately, so I don't know if she (my boss) would do much. Also, I don't want to be too rude, as I will have to continue to work with her and I don't want to feel uncomfortable every time I do.
DK;DC: Will you tell me a story about a time where you called someone out on their bullshit? I know this is a kinda common question but I love it! And I hate perpetual liars!

My girlfriend and I have had a ski trip planned for a few months now and we are supposed to leave on the 10th at 12:00PM. We booked the tickets using a flight reward that so the tickets there only cost us 10 bucks. Yesterday, she found out that her work rescheduled a meeting that she is supposed to attend from the morning of the 10th to the afternoon. There is no way that we can keep the same flight and she can attend this meeting. Here are our options:
- Keep current flights and not attend meeting (Even though it is important for her to be there)
- Travel one day later and lose a vacation day that we were supposed to have skiing traveling and forfeit one night hotel stay that we will have to pay for.
- Travel separately: I go at 12 and she flies up at 4:30PM and we meet there (100 dollar flight upgrade)
- Both travel at 4:35PM. 100 dollars for her ticket and 386 dollars for mine. (Only one rapid reward tix available)
Rock and a hard place here. What do you all think?
I need a spreadsheet with the following:
Spendable points total
A box to add points
A box to subtract points
Points added should be added to both the Score and Spendable points totals.
Subtracted points should only be subtracted from total spendable points.
How do I do this in google docs?
I've been mucking around with it, but every time I think I have a breakthrough, I've done something else wrong. It seems like it's incredibly simple, I've just never used formulas in a spreadsheet before.
ETA: SOLVED. TY, this works perfect.
i hope that makes sense. i never give anyone a chance, and am really closed off and it sucks.
was there anything you were "known for" in highschool?

I got that nasty virus that LOOKS like a legit antivirus, but I can tell it's not. It interrupts everything I do on my computer and it's just annoying. I switched to the other profile on my computer, and it seems (knock on wood) to not have infiltrated it. I can't open AVG or any other anti-virus I have on my computer to get rid of it under my profile, but under my boyfriend's I can. If I had the disc, I would just re-format the whole damn computer.
1. Will running an anti-virus on the other profile help get rid of it on mine?
2. If not, do you think deleting my profile and creating a new one would help? this is what I did and it seems to have worked.
3. Why has it only infiltrated my profile?
I don't download shit! I think I got it because my stupid boyfriend insists that going to shady-looking websites (you know, NOT Hulu) to watch Arrested Development logged in to my profile on the laptop is a good idea. Ughhhh.
ETA: It's a Vista.

...or scare me more, because obviously 34920835923 people are going to post explosive-teeth-bleeding-through-my-eyes stories here just for the lulz.
Has anyone ever heard this, or know what it's called, or if it's even a thing?
Googling only turned up an article on how women are less able to recognize psychopathic behavior, which is not quite what I'm looking for.

Once I was walking with my dad late at night (I was 18, he was 54) and there was this Mariachi band stationed on the sidewalk. They saw us in the dark and started playing romantic music, but as soon as we walked closer they realized "Oh crap" and stopped playing. My dad started laughing really hard, whereas I went -_-

I haven't had a professional haircut in about 5 years and I've decided to treat myself to one tonight.
This is me now:
I really like this sort of haircut, but I don't know how it would look on me.
EDIT: <a href="http://community.livejournal.com/tqc_updates/236375.html" I did it and I'm happy with how it turned out. Thanks for the advice, everyone!</a>
i.e. I just got sidetracked by Chicane when I wanted to listen to the Distillers, and now I have very little desire to listen to the Distillers.
eta: How varied are the genres of music you most commonly listen to?
Does anyone have any interesting ideas? Bonus points if its a one dish casserole (like tuna noodle).
Do you like eggplants? If yes, what are your favorite eggplant recipes?
Don't know/don't care: What are you having for dinner tonight? (We're having potatoes, green peppers, onions and smoked sausage all done in a skillet, it is not done yet but smells awesome, and I am hungry, hence the question)
Think of what you consider an ideal health care plan/system. What would it include?I want a public option, and no discrimination against pre-existing conditions.
At work Wednesday, one of my students (a Freshman boy) told me that my hair looked like a broom. He meant it as a compliment.
How the hell did he think that was a compliment?
Should I take the metro to school tomorrow, since it's unlikely my stupid university will cancel evening classes? Driving home at rush hour in a blizzard seems like a nice venture into Hell.
Have you stockpiled TP, milk, & bread yet???
Im going up to Liverpool this weekend to see a friend, is there anywhere anyone can recommend to go out either daytime or nightlife?
When years of therapy/treatment, several medications, life style changes, time, self-discovery, friend support and more don't work, does that person have a right to say "maybe I'm just broken"? Is that person expected to live for ever in misery?
ALSO, do you use matching shampoo and conditioners? So for example you would use Pantene shampoo and the matching Pantene conditioner?

eta: lady A who claimed the do was originally hers sued lady B who took the dog in because now lady A can't breed the dog. she lost because she couldn't actually prove it was her dog (her only proof was "but i know my dog!"). from what was said, lady B took the dog in because she thought it was a stray, not because she wanted to steal someone's dog.
What do you name your team?
what is the purpose of this? are they advertising for god? there is no church name or anything, just "god"
No hookers and blow, he has to pass drug tests and avoid baby mama drama if at all possible.
What's your favorite smoothie recipe?
I have frozen strawberries and raspberries, soy milk, coconut milk, and peanut butter. If I go out, is there anything else I should get for my smoothies?
"I have observed how museums are also repositories of information (that is) (that are) scrutinized, catalogued, displayed and promoted for public enjoyment."
Which one is it?
"My specific interest in this developed over my (two year)(two-year) employment at [Mickey D's]."
Is two-year hyphenated?
And this one is just a run-on sentence that I can't fix:
"However, in my thorough research on librarianship I have learned that it comprises much more than a love of books and I believe I possess the inquisitive, intelligent and meticulous characteristics required of a successful information professional."
When was the last time you felt like an utter failure?
I have really bad anxiety problems, and when people randomly disappear, I freak out and think of the worst. My SO signed off AIM an hour ago without explaining (he usually says "BRB, taking a shower" or something) and he's not answering his phone or responding to my texts, which is super uncharacteristic of him. I have to talk to him about something MUY IMPORTANTE before I go to bed. I DUNNO WHAT TO DOOOO OMG.
Will you show me your Facebook default photo?
2)What IS my icon from? This is really bothering me.
3)What's the most unforgettable experience you've ever had?
Normally I consider myself a fiction writer (specifically sci-fi or fantasy stuff), but a while back I tried my hand at writing poetry and turned out what I consider to be some fairly good sonnets. The problem is that I really don't know if they're good or not, since NO ONE will ever offer a decent critique for poetry. So while I'm pretty pleased with them personally, if prevailed upon to show them to someone I get really insecure and anxious. Meh.
DC: What was the last phone call you made?
What are your favourite myths?
For those of you in college, what have been your favourite classes so far and why?
For my creative writing class I can pretty much do WHATEVER I WANT for my ~term papers~.
The class is called Mythological Narratives, and all the assignment has to do is be creative & explore something (whether it be fact or fiction) in depth.
For the first one I'm doing a short story about family & rites of passsage.. sort of haha.
Any suggestions for the other two? I'm sure I'll be able to figure something out, but thought I'd come to you guys for suggestions :) It's a pretty wicked assignment because we can take it ANYWHERE. I went and spoke to my prof about it & he said we can do a research paper type thing, or a simple narrative, or a collection of poems, whatever we feel like, so I'm pretty excited.

Have you ever had a surreal day? Doesn't have to be a good surreal either. What was it like?
Why does everyone make a big deal out of bacon?
I'm pretty damn close right now...iceberg lettuce, green bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, celery, tomatoes, mushrooms, facon, a sprinkling of cheese, and homemade pumpernickel croutons. All with a side of greek dressing. OMFG party in my mouth!

Did you ever have a 4.0 in college?
My first semester ever lollll but not since.
If not, did you ever make the Dean's List? What did your school require to be on it?
My school now requires a 3.6, I'm hoping to make it this semester. My old school didn't have one.
sorry for the double post!!!

I've never been to a Bridal Shower and I have been invited to one...
What goes on at a Bridal Shower? Do you need to bring a gift to it? Do you ask the bride what she wants as a gift? HAAAALP!
anyway, he is from tokyo. he lived in new york for five years, and now he lives here in minneapolis. i have not spoken to him on the phone.
he understands english really well, but does text things that are notably a bit on the side of "engrish". like when i asked him about the type of music he likes he said "i like rocks. i listen j-rocks and j-pops mostly."
any time he says "glad" he types it "grad". i think it is adorable. but a part of me think that i should at least tell him that the word is "glad". i mean it's highly likely he pronounces it "grad", but i don't want to look like an asshole.
it's possible he just accidentally has it in his iphone auto-correct like that. but i don't know.
what would you do in this situation?
on the same note i am really nervous to meet him because i am not tiny like japanese girls. i have big boobs and a big butt. if that is what he is used to/what he likes, he is in for an unpleasant surprise. i do have a couple photos on okcupid that show my whole self, but i don't know if they really get across the point that i am not tiny.
