The other day I was at my friend's house at a family gathering, and I was having a conversation with his mom and another friend of mine about scary movies. I had said Carrie was my favorite because it was funny and Carrie is such a relatable character. They both looked at me like I was crazy.
Am I? Did you ever feel like a outcast in high? Didn't you want to burn it down?
How ugly is too ugly for you to let someone give you a blowjob/cunnilingus? (Disease free, no strings attached)
what is the most backhanded compliment you've ever received?? just your standard "such a pretty face" etc. my boss, however, delivered the best one ever to my office manager, after she got her pants hemmed:
"Wow Jen, you're not as fat as I thought you were!"
To the fashion-savvy/couture-savvy, I'd just like to know which are the must-haves monthly issues of Vogue magazine. Would it be the september issue and...?
For the NYorkers or anyone who has lived/worked/studied there, how did/do you find it? Was/Is it a place worth moving for? I'm really interested because i'm about to graduate from university and have a job ready for me such that I may be able to apply for secondments in the future and NY's a place that I've been considering. It's gonna be a few years from now but it would be helpful to be able to have at least a vague end in mind.
I'd like to buy my boyfriend Duck's tickets for his birthday because he's a huge hockey/Ducks fan. I know close to nothing about hockey. Who is a good team for them to play in a game? I'm trying to semi-insure that it'll be an exciting game. Thanks!
Have you ever refinished hardwood floors? If so, any tips/tricks to make the stain and poly dry faster? Does it really take 8 hours for the stain to dry and 12-18 for the poly? Do I really need to wait 3 days before bringing my furniture back in?
Do you prefer carpet or wood flooring?
Are you the do it yourself type or the hire a handyman/contractor type when it comes to home remodeling/repairs?
The husband and I are totally remodeling our bathroom and putting new flooring in the kitchen. We were going to put laminate wood in the living room and hallway, but we found hardwood underneath the carpet.
Anyone else still use a student checking account linked to your parents' account, even though you have already graduated from college or moved away etc?
I have been, and also they are a co-signer on my car, but I am trying to untangle myself from them because they have been making dumb financial moves lately and don't want to get dragged into the mess.
I've worked as a travel writer for a few years & I just launched my own website. I'm trying to get various companies to sponsor giveaways to promote my site. I've already done a hiking shoe (KEENs) giveaway, and I've got a Samsonite luggage giveaway going on right now. What other product giveaways should I try to do?
What can't you live without when you're traveling?
What do you always take in your carry-on bags?
Do you have a favorite or least favorite airline? Why?
Would you rather take a five hour drive or a five hour flight?
TQC, do you find that once you injure yourself, you seem to keep injuring the same spot? I stepped on a nail on Sunday and have a great puncture wound on my right foot, I sprained my ankle and scraped my leg on Tuesday (right foot, again), and I just dropped a can of hairspray on a toe on my left foot.
Do you know where I got the subject of my post? If not, I suggest you invest in a copy of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
DK/DC: What is your favorite sweet food, during winter?
I'm writing a series of speeches on same sex marriage for my Public Speaking class and my first speech is supposed to be strictly informative, (meaning we can only talk about facts, not our opinion) but writing about it impartially is turning out to be SO much harder than I thought.
Are there any topics that you would have a hard time talking/writing about impartially?
For those of you with a Nintendo DS, what are your favorite games?
I'm playing Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney right now and it's fucking awesome.
Blahh, so I have a graded flute performance at school today in an hour. Apparently, I'm supposed to have this paper filled out to give my audience/professors/graders, which I have done. However, my teacher never told me about it, I found out about it myself last night. I have it all filled out, but it asks for her signature, which I don't have (and she's busy watching other performances now). If I'm asked about the signature, is there any way I can say I "wasn't informed" about the paper without it sounding like an accusation against my teacher?
ETA: Oof, I should also mention that my teacher will be one of the people I'm playing for. And it would probably be bad taste to show up and ask for her signature. Unless she's "cooperative" and offers it right away...
I am filing my taxes online right now and I received student loans in 2009. Do I need to enter the amount I received somewhere in my return? I didn't see a section for loans, other than the question for "how much loan interest did you pay." Google is just confusing me and I can't pay $30 to "ask an expert."
SO, this morning I was rudely disturbed by a group of 3 people who claimed they were messengers from the prophet Jesus the Mother in Asia.
Whatever I'm usually pretty nice to people when they come to the door, regardless of what they are selling BUT These people banged on the door & rang the doorbell for a good ten minutes, while screaming "HELLO, WE NEED YOU". When I still didn't answer (I was getting in the shower for fuck sakes), I heard the BACK doorbell ringing & them trying the door knobs & yelling into the back windows.
So I opened the damned door, and told them I wasn't interested & they kept going on. I tried to close the door & they pushed it open again, so I had to SLAM IT & lock it.
NOW, I can see them at my neighbours house doing the same thing .. They have walked into the GATED back yard & up onto the back deck.
SHOULD I CALL THE NON-EMERGENCY LINE AND REPORT THEM? While I know these people are probably harmless, they were TRYING to get into my house and they are trespassing on private property. The people across the street have dogs in thier back yard, what if they let them out?
SHORT VERSION there are people creepin around my neighbourhood claiming to be messengers of Jesus the Mother in Asia. They are going into peoples' backyards & trying to open doors. Should I call the non-emergency line? hrmph.
Okay, I called & they said they would send someone. I'm keeping an eye on the dogs as well, they're still in the backyard :)
i am starting school on the 22nd. prior to this i just "got by" in school. after high school i just dinked around community college, when i didn't really want to be there, and developed really bad habits regarding studying and homework.
so my question to you is: do you have any little tips or tricks to keep you focused and not-falling-behind in school? aside from the obvious "study, do homework, and pay attention". i guess i'm looking for things to keep me organized and NOT forget things? any ideas?
i'm thinking of getting a planner/organizer/whatever you call them... so do you know of any that are any good ones specifically for using in school? or good ones that would be good for using in school? (if there's a difference, i honestly don't know) specific ones i could maybe find at target or walmart?
dk/dc: sorry, i can't think of another question for you ):
Yesterday I received a teddy bear in the post from my cousin's kid. The bear is meant to make his way to various interesting places outside of Canada. Each of the students in his class are doing this. Also, part of the instructions say to pass the bear on to someone in a different country if you have someone there that you know. You're to take pics of the bear and show him a good time. I think it's a kinda cool class project.
What was the most interesting class/school project you ever did?
Do you think, in this day and age, that there are people who truly do not know someone in another country?
I saw a post yesterday where someone was listening to RainyMood.com. Are there other websites like that with ambient noises, where it streams in a loop, for free? So far all I've found is SimplyNoise.com and that's just white noise and the like.
Edit: Also why am I getting like 8 emails for every 1 comment notification?
Just counted instead of deleting...its actually 11.
TQC, I'm having trouble deciding what to do with my life. I don't want to be a millionaire or anything, but I would like to end up with a career that is enjoyable and makes decent money. So, I thought I would ask you all, what do you do for a living? Do you like it? Are you paid well? If you don't like the job you have now, what are some things you think would be fun to do for a living?
I need to get laid even though I just did last week. I'm interested in someone that I'm taking it slow with so I can't really go and get laid until I know what this is turning into. What the heck do I do to distract myself?
Long haired TQCers: What's your favorite way to style your hair? I particularly want new everyday hair styles since I'm getting tired of a bun or a braid, but fancy is good too. My hair is about hip-length and I want to do more things with it.
1. What's your relationship with gravy? Do you eat it often? Is "gravy and biscuits" a meal by itself for you? Do you make your own?
2. Ever shave another person? What were the circumstances?
3. Which kind of greens do you like best -- Mustard, Collard, or Turnip? How do you prepare them?
4. Ever plant a chia pet? Which kind did you have, and how did it work out?
5. If a hetero couple has penis-in-vagina sex without a condom but with hormonal birth control, is that protected sex or unprotected sex? Are you amused by women who ask if they need to use Plan B after having sex while already on hormonal birth control, because the guy came inside?
What things (generally considered perfectly normal) fascinate you? How do you justify your fascination?
For as long as I can remember, I've been fascinated by seeing lefties use their dominant hand - especially to write. It used to blow me away, now I just feel a little mix of excitement, awe and envy. You would've thought I was watching someone... do something that was actually fascinating. Anyway, beyond the scope of "I'm a righty, so it's weird.", my justification is limited.
My boyfriend's latest thing is to scowl and poke fun at my choice of a sandwich that I like to make, it's mostly cheese and condiments. I just don't think he gets me. Do you think I should break up with him?
Check out the site below and pick an excursion you'd want to do, price aside. Keep in mind, the full day trips will take away from your free days in specific cities. Will you tell me which excursion you would you pick, and why?
I just got a large package of new underwear (like thirty odd pairs and a few bras) for my 21st birthday from my mother, she knew that I would have to open it in front of the other 30 girls I live with and thought it was quite hilarious.
I need to send her something to her work for revenge. What should I send?
DK/DC - what was the oddest gift someone gave you? As a gag or otherwise?
So let's say that, hypothetically, you're a woman in an open relationship. You meet an amazing woman and begin to fall in love with her, and she feels the same way about you. She is new to the concept of open relationships and is not sure she could handle it. She would want someone she could sleep next to every night.
How long is your hair? When you don't often get haircuts are you aware of your hair growing, or do you have a "how did my hair get this long?" moment? What was the longest you've ever had your hair? The shortest?
-I just realized my hair is bra-strap-length and I had no idea it had gotten that long (or, you know, didn't realize it was). -Longest: now, and when I was like 7... but I'm actually pretty sure now is the longest its ever been. -Shortest: ear-lobe-length. Never EVER again. It looked awful on me.
( Collapse ) TQC, should I schedule my own doctor's appointment? I don't know what kind of rules there are for minors, since she's always scheduled/payed for them. Also, how pissed will she be? I'll be super embarrassed if there's nothing wrong and I went behind her back and did this.
You know those greeting cards with photographs in them? Usually they are just a long card with a picture of your friends' kids or dogs on one side and then "happy holidays from your friends the petersons" or whatever on the margin.
What do you do with those?
I have all my christmas cards still scotch taped to the kitchen doorway and it's time to put them in the recycling--but I'm conflicted about the photo cards: should I save them?
Ok I feel like I'm exceeding some kind of posting quota (two posts on one page!) but whatever. Of these countries, which would you study abroad in?: Italy, Spain, France, Japan, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Brazil, Ireland, Australia or New Zealand.
This is from CCI Exchange, does anyone have experience with a different company? CCI was the first that popped up.
1) Are you an adventurous/varied eater? Or are you picky? (Be honest with yourself, folks)
2) If you were an adventurous eater, could you be with someone who was picky?
My friends girlfriend doesn't like ANYTHING. She likes mexican, pizza, burgers and italian and THAT IS ABOUT IT. Everything else is "weird". She won't eat spicy food, most vegetables, any seafood, fish included, most beef, anything other than skim milk, chocolate, and other things I am doubtless forgetting.
Does anyone know what store I might be able to find these jars? http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/etreasure_2086_3633739 I remember them being around a lot a couple of years back, and I want to buy one for a friend, but it wont come in time if i order it online.
Why do they sell single cold beers next to the register at the gas station when it's illegal to have an open container in your car? Do they want people to break the law? They can't honestly expect you to go home before you drink it, otherwise they wouldn't make sure it was cold.
TQC, I bought my dad Pulp Fiction on DVD a few years ago. Why does he watch it every time it airs on regular tv, where they change "motherfucker" to "little sucker" and generally ruin it? The dvd is with all the others, it's not like he lost it.
Are there any movies that you prefer the poorly edited version of instead of the original?
does anyone know of a widget or small program or something that will display at little box or something at a specified time? i want to use it to remind myself of when i need to harvest my crops in farmville.
when you're feeling lonely, sad or angry, does hearing/seeing other people's laughter, belligerent good times, etc. make you upset?
if you knew that cheese was made out of cow poop and not cow milk, but it still tasted delicious and wonderful, would you still eat it? you can replace "cheese" with "tofu" or something if you don't eat cheese.
Apparently it's snowing where I live, in east Texas. I'm in my pajama shorts. Should I put on pants and shoes and go outside to see for myself? Or should I just live vicariously through everyone on my Facebook who are posting pictures?
I need to paint my nails to match three outfits - pink/red on Friday, purple on Saturday, and pink on Sunday.
I have pink, purple, and red nail polish. How should I paint my nails? I'm thinking of using one as a base color with the other two as polka dots. If that sounds good, which color should be the base? If that doesn't sound good, what should I do instead? I like doing fancy designs so I'd like to use more than one color rather than doing boring solid colors. (I think these three colors look good together and would feel nice and Valentiney)
how do i estimate utilities on an apartment? i'm guessing the aparment would be around 500 sq ft (maybe less, i only ever saw the two bedroom apartments at this complex and i'd be getting a one bedroom), and gas, heat, and water are included.
