Edited: do you know why you identify with that gender?
Trans or cis?
Should I just go to bed and study for a few hours tomorrow? If it matters, this stuff is really easy and I already feel pretty confident without even studying.
dk/dc: What deodorant do you use?
Backstory: I joined a writing group at my school and was told upon entering that it was for strictly prose fiction. Fine, that's what I write, I have no issues with that. So I was expecting serious, well written, quality fiction.
I did not expect to read a story for children about fake animals who give bad luck.
I did not expect to read a story about a tourist who has no money and holds someone up in Hong Kong so he can buy 2000 cigarettes.
(and I use the word story very loosely considering that both of these pieces had barely any real description or plot)
So, here's the other question: do I just have a very narrow idea of prose fiction, or are people submitting ridiculous things?
Never mind, I went out and bought myself a pink Zippo :P
Is it still snowing where you are?
What would you do if they didn't wax your asshole? What's the right way to say, "can you put hot wax on my asshole?"
I'm going to a dentist appointment tomorrow and getting two fillings. Does it weird anyone else out when your face is numb after you get a filling filled?
also, How do I get to sleep? Im at boyfiends house. hes super asleep and Im not tired at all.
So now I'm in the market for a new one. Dell seems like a good bet, but after looking on Ebay, it seems that I can get a used Macbook for about the same cost as customizing a Dell.
So: whats the cheapest place to buy a Macbook (or macbook pro)?
Ebay looks alright, but I'm wondering if there are better deals out there.
Can be used, refurbished, doesn't matter as long as it works and works well.
A couple years ago, I had a Mac G4. I found some really good deals on them refurbished, but I have questions (i'm not tech savvy).
I know that technology gets outdated really quickly, so if I got a G4 today would it die really really soon? Would it need updates to run all proper like with new internet technologies? Etc advice on buying older model computers would also be helpful.
Any and all advice from Mac owners (or techies in general) would be very appreciated. I don't want to spend a lot and get screwed.
Would you take a vacation even if it co$t you?
What room are you in?
What were they going to tell me??? I want to know the story =(
Does anyone have a link to that website that is basically nothing but Taylor Swift macros with Mean Girls quotes?

Im selling a camera on Craig's List and I got an email that sounded a little sketchy. They asked for my final price and I emailed them back and got this response:

SVU marathon anybody? I've got oodles of poptarts!
its not too super long, but I figured a cut would be best.
salons are too expensive but i have an interview tomorrow and need my hair to be a "natural" color but going back to brown would make me too sad.
have you ever done your own hair bleach job? how did it turn out?
How long was it before you became a couple, and how did it come about?
If you have no significant other, what are you doing for Valentine's Day?
I would like to get a job at the hospital, but I frankly don't know what I would apply for?
My only past work experience is a food clerk at a deli, a cashier at Sea World, and basic office work at my University's Admissions Office.
So I doubt I'm even qualified for anything at a hospital past entry-level.
I'm not entirely sure what career path I want either; (aka Im not looking to be a doctor), just something health related i guess. So work whether volunteer or paid in a hospital will be good.
My questions are:
What jobs could I apply for?
Where would I even apply for them?
Do hospitals have online application websites or do I have to apply in person?
I'm basically clueless so any information would be greatly appreciated. I'm just trying to get some idea of what I'm going to need to look for, plan for.
They must be flat. The model is wearing a red shoe, but red shoes and a red dress? Eh, I don't know. I'm thinking silver, but am not completely sold on it. Also, sandals in October? It should still be warm, but is it more appropriate to go with a peep-toe style?
So, my question to you is:
What movies/TV shows would you recommend I watch on Instant Netflix tonight?
I recently finished the first seasons of Dead Like Me and this Australian show called Satisfaction, and I loved them both, but season 2 is not available yet for either one... .so now I'm at a loss! Any suggestions would be appreciated!
(My apologies for adding to all the other movie questions!)
We need to talk to him and her about it, because it's not fair they're doing this, but I hate confrontation, TQC. How do I approach it?
ETA: He *is* using resources. Smokes in our (by-contract non-smoking) kitchen, blocks our drive, and is very noisy all night.
I haven't eat a full meal since Sunday since it hurts to eat pretty much anything. Besides soup, what are other things I could eat that won't irritate my throat too much?
What is the longest plane trip you have ever been on? (literally or metaphorically)
Funniest thing you have ever said! what is it?~!
Feel free to individually name yourselves, but don't mention Disney World.
one of my friends and i always get assumed that we're together. they never ask, just assume. today i went with him to look at the rottiweiler that he's getting and the guy talking to us asked if we had any kids.
also same friend and i used to work together at a grocery store. one day while he was cashiering and i was cashiering about 5 checkstands away a customer pointed to me and asked him if we were married. we were nowhere near each other. awkward.
ETA: if this doesn't happen to you, will you tell me some awkward assumptions people make about you?
A 21 year old man at my university died on Sunday morning by being too drunk and slipping on some gravel while crossing a railroad track. He hit his head on cement and bled to death.
What was the last thing that made you realize that life is fleeting and unpredictable?
What strange happenings are going on where you are?
How can I fix my cutlery drawer? The front came off it and I can't just nail it back on because the wood the nails were in snapped off too.
How early is to early to have a glass of wine?
How often do you have alcoholic beverages?
If I told you a train leaving Columbus, going at 85mph to Denver is departing at 12:30pm, and a train leaving Little Rock, going at 65mph to Helena was departing at 2pm...what question would cross through your mind?
Get a new umbrella and lip pencil, study, vacuum out my car, tidy up my room, set my hair...and tons I'm forgetting :(
Do you prefer to pay with debit, credit, or cash? What does your card of choice look like?
I prefer to pay with cash, but if not, I'll use my Hello Kitty BofA debit card
What bank do you do your primary banking with?
Do you have direct deposit? If not, how do you receive your money?
Yes. If I didn't have it, I would get a paycard that costs me money to get my check.
Since I'm marking this post don't notify, does that mean if you comment, and I reply, you won't get my comment reply? Or do I just get to enjoy the fruits of no notification?
Knowing that I won't be going anywhere today, should I straighten my hair? It'd give me something to do, but I'd be damaging my hair for nothing. So should I straighten it?
Also, what are you listening to RIGHT THIS SECOND?
The Dresden Dolls - "The Gardener"
I eat it all the time and people are like IT'S 15 DEGREES OUT ARE YOU CRAZY!!? I don't get it. It's not like I'm eating outside in the cold or something.
So my laptop's primary photo viewer is windows live photo gallery. I keep trying to crop a picture and then save the cropped one separately but it won't let me, so HOW DO I DO THIS?
If not, do you think your curiosity would haunt you?
if your area does have decent public transport, do you use it? why or why not?
How much is too much?
I can almost always tell with a good degree of certainty when someone in the room has a thing for someone else in the room, yet once I''m one of those people, I get all turned around. Sometimes I think the other person feels it too, but then a moment later I'm pretty convinced they're not interested or perhaps only tolerate me.
I was just watching this movie my friend made and I honestly can't tell you if it's good or bad. I'll avoid a cheesewheel and just sum up in words. I enjoyed it. However, his character in the movie was basically him in real life with a different name/circumstances. It didn't feel scripted but the personality was totally him. Is that good acting or bad?
Do you think that it be noticeable enough to have to worry about covering it up at future jobs? From what I've read, it seems like most white ink tattoos tend to look like scars after they've healed, and ideally this tattoo wouldn't prevent me from wearing shorter sleeves.
Also: what are some good websites that have nice fonts for things like this? I don't mind paying for fonts as long as they're not too pricey. If you have any specific font recommendations, that would be awesome too!
Do you like or hate cooking questions on TQC?
What should I watch on Hulu tonight?
Is your hair your natural hair color? If not, do you miss your natural hair color? If it is, do you want to change it? To what? I have naturally reddish brown hair and I've been thinking of getting highlights or something.... but I feel guilty about it =/ From the ages of 16 to about 25, I never had my natural hair color. Now that I do, I feel like I shouldn't mess with it. But I'm bored.

So tell me, am I going to be raped and murdered by Kefka? On a scale of 1 to 10, how freaked out would you be to get this message from a total stranger? I'm not really worried about it myself, but it is the first time I can recall getting a message from a total stranger on Facebook, let alone something like this.
EDIT~! My sister found out who it is. It's some guy (who I've never talked to but know of) from World of Warcraft (which I haven't played in months) who is a known misogynist and has sent me hateful and threatening messages before through another sock puppet account. Makes it slightly more creepy, but at least I know.
On another note, I joined the community a few months ago on my newer LJ account but I'm still not able to post entries or comments. Y U H8? :'(
If I go to the movies tonight, which of these should I see?
how do I fix this back to default?
now, why am i getting 7 emails of the same comment from each person!?
A friend of mine suggested them to me and since it's all so cheap I tried some of it out. I am now officially in love with their $1 eyeliner pen and I kind of want to try their mineral line.
What is the last thing that made you vocally express surprise?
I looked out my window to see that it's snowing again, wtf. We've already got like a foot of snow!
Also, do you believe in Bigfoot? (Serious question, y'all).
why did you choose what you did for your upcoming tattoo (if you're getting one)?
have any questions you need to ask tqc about this tattoo?
did you get it out of your system yet?
Will you post with a different icon and see if people can describe your default icon?
edit: i have a PC.
Have you ever snooped on someone? Find anything interesting?
It's supposed to be a 6 week criminal trial and sounds like srs bsns.
I don't do well in enclosed situations, have anxiety issues and also have a short attention span.
How should I get out of this?
SRS/Non-SRS answers welcome!
ETA: I'm in Australia, so answers from Aussies also appreciated :O)
EDIT: and my profile is PRIVATE and she even took things out of my livejournal. WHAT THE HELL.
Today, my boyfriend worked all day then came home to snow plow the driveway, do the dishes, give the dog a bath, and is now watching our kid until I get off work. What nice thing should I do in return?
DK/DC: Would you rent the Jersey Shore house if you could afford it?
Are you a character?
Don't know or care, what are you doing tonight? Snow-bound people, how are you keeping yourself entertained?
What about at your best?
Do you ever consider yourself to be unworthy of your SO (or previous SO)? Why?
Also, can you show me pictures of things you have baked?
What English Sounds Like to Non-English Speakers
The last video of the girl from Argentina is pretty good, but the music video in post #1 after Family Guy is really awesome. As the description says "pure eye candy" I loved it.
What is your opinion of this?
For people whose first language is not English - is this close to what it first sounded like?
How many of you like to imitate other languages? Which ones are your favorites to imitate?
See a video game release schedule here.
DK/DC: What did you dress up as during the last Halloween you dressed up for?
What should I do while I am stuck home?
I feel so fake and strained. So I don't..and then I look awkward with this half smile thingy my lips do.
I am going on a dress up date on Friday and I want to look hot.
Some people say NO to tights.
Some people say yes to (purple) tights (shown in picture.)
Some people say black tights/nylons.

Have you ever been on one? What happened?!

When was the last time you went to the library for something other than schoolwork/research?
What did you get?
What's the worst thing you've ever been forced to read? Why did you have to read it? What made it so bad?
I'm reading The System of Comics by Tierry Groesteen for class. It's the doctoral thesis of a German man, written in French, and translated into English by two French Canadian linguistics Professors. I really didn't think it was possible to make comics this boring but boy have I been proven wrong. It's like reading the manual to the Batmoblie. Sure, everything associated with Batman SHOULD be awesome, but when you break it down its still just made of fuel lines and break pads and all those other things that you've never really given a shit about before.
Have you ever visited Washington, DC?
Have you visited any other national capitals? If so, which ones?
Sorry about the confusion. And sorry about the confusion again. Yeesh.
SINCE THIS QUESTION WAS TOO CONFUSING I'M ASKING SOME NEW ONES.
DO YOU LIKE PANTS???
DO YOU LIKE TO PAINT???
DO YOU LOVE THE PAIN???
And do you love/hate/not care about Valentine's Day?
V-Day doesn't affect me as I don't have a partner, but I think it's sweet to see all the couples out being romantic. And I love the half-price Valentine's candy the next day. But I do obviously think people should treat their partners well all year, not just on one day. This Sunday I'm going to some kind of Chinese New Year celebration...I'M SO EXCITED!
I do, and I'll decide based on the number if I will eat there or not. I don't look for individual violations unless I'm waiting and just standing around.
1b. What is the lowest score you've ever seen?
54, at Chili's
2. In the movie Pretty Woman, why does she get so butthurt when he treats her like a prostitute? If it walks like a duck...
3. What's a movie you would have liked if it weren't for things like I mentioned in #2?
DK/DC: What is your non-alcoholic drink-of-choice?
Which would you rather drink RIGHT NOW?
What is the purpose of backing your car in to a driveway before a snowstorm?
Backstory: we have a 2-car driveway; my upstairs neighbors came by to ask me if it was okay that they backed their car in so that it's front-facing-the-street, because of the snow. I could tell they were asking to be courteous but I had NO idea why they'd be asking me that, and was like "uhh yeah whatever, I don't care which way your car is pointing." I'm from NYC and never had to deal with cars there, and these girls are from some snowy rural part of New England. They seem to know snow things.
Is it somehow helpful to them to be facing the street in snowy weather? And is it inconvenient for me?
Which book do you suggest?
Edit: the list is obviously long, if you dont feel like glancing at it then save your time (which you must not have a lot of... ....naht ... . ) and dont click 'comment' either
and..... is livejournal sending you a million emails for the same comment as well? WHAT THE FUCK! :(

What advice would you give to someone who is considering getting a cat?
Also, is it true that indoor cats - [ETA] who don't have any other cat friends to be with - get get lonely and bored easily?
Is there no equivalent of Title IX in Canada (which basically says schools must have equal opportunities for sports and other activities for girls and boys)? How would I find this out? None of my google phrasing has worked so far.
If you don't care, when's the last time it snowed where you are?

Any good sites for playlists? Besides tinymixtapes?
I have well over 200 cd's (cases and all), the Hubs thinks I should ditch the cases (keeping the liner notes) and put them all in binders. I'm not sure I want to as I like all the packaging. Which option would you chose, cases or binders?
edit: What should I make the Hubs for Valentine's Day dinner?
Which genre(s) of music do you like that everyone else considers to be cheesy?
Don't know or care, have you seen any movies that made you feel sympathetic towards the villain?
I am making home made French onion soup, a fresh salad, and a heart-shaped red velvet cake with PINK GLITTER SPRINKLES! and bought some body paint pens. ;) My SO's making some chicken and asparagus dish with hollandaise sauce. Mmm. Now my room mate needs to stay on good terms with her baby daddy because she told me the house would be mine that night, but she keeps bitching about him, so IDK. :(
How do you keep yourself motivated when unemployed?
I feel like dying right now, but that's not productive.
NYC is supposed to get a bunch of snow- if my school does NOT close, should I skip anyway and tell my professors I couldn't come in because of the weather? (It would give me time to get a bunch of stuff done)
ETA: If you were snowed in, how long would you survive with the food you have assuming unlimited water and a means to cook?
How about with only a can opener and a candle?
2.This is for non-American TCQers, after reading Sesame Street: A Celebration of Life on the Street, I am curious. What is the version of Sesame Street like in your country? What is it called? Did you watch it as a kid?
