Would you ever consider getting LASIK?
Do you think you look better in glasses or contacts? Post a picture of both! (If you want. If not, that's cool too.)
Parents: Can you still make noise during sex after you have a baby, or will you forever be condemned to have quiet sex so you won't disturb the kid sleeping in the next room?
I MUST KNOW OK
I am going for the second time at the end of october and I've already gone to all the typical touristy places like Top of the Rock and statue of liberty.
If you are concidering getting a tattoo? What are you getting and where?
on my forearm just below my elbow crease.
What is one thing that you absolutely must have at your wedding?

Things of note: I haven't missed this class yet. I have this teacher again at 11, and he may or may not give a fuck that I wasn't in his 8 am. I can get notes from someone else. It is a lecture class, the 11 o'clock is based on speaking and hearing.
If you don't care at all about any of this...
At what point did you decide you were ready to personally take on the responsibility of a (relatively demanding) pet? (aka cat, dog, etc.)

If you use a different program, will you post the top 25 songs from there?
If you don't want to post 25 songs, you can post 10.
When's the last time you went to the zoo?
My town (Dallas) is exploding with frozen yogurt stores. These are not the TCBY variety, but rather trendy looking joints that charge by the weight and it is all self serve with a bunch of topping options. It seems like there is a new place opening up every week. It reminds me of Starbucks 10 years ago. Anyway, is this just a yuppie Dallas thing or has this trend hit your area also?
"I am _________________." (doesn't have to be a one-word answer)
2. Are you watching the Olympics? Do you prefer the Summer Games or the Winter Games? What's your favorite sport to watch?

How much noise does each partner make during sex?
ETA: Please identify your own sex in your answer, or else make clear which is male and which female.
Also, apologies about not considering intersex.
You love your significant other, but he/she has some trust/insecurity issues. You've never cheated because you just don't go there, but you've innocently flirted with a few male friends over the course of you and your SO's 1 year relationship (but isn't innocent flirtation harmless?) via text and email.
Now he/she regularly snoops by looking through your phone when you're away from it. And say you have an iPhone so both my texting history and email are viewable. And when he/she sees that you've been casually talking to a friend of the opposite sex to set up a meeting to hang out to catch up or something, he/she gets upset saying that you're entertaining conversation with someone who's obviously flirting with you.
I'm getting annoyed that my bf's constantly checking up on me. I'm tempted to put a lock on my phone, but he said that this would indicate to him that I actually AM trying to hide things from him.
What would you do if you didn't want to break up? Just keep your phone on you at all times?
Somehow I just feel it's inappropriate to spend ages talking about fanfiction next to Shakespeare, Blake and Shelley.
Do you ruin them by putting Thousand Island salad dressing on them?
Do you make them with corned beef or pastrami?
1b) Was it a surprise?
2) Do you think suicide by someone who is not terminally ill is ever ethically acceptable?
3) If someone I know just committed suicide and it didn't upset me does that mean I have really good coping skills? Or does it mean that I have serious emotional detachment issues and should seek professional help?

If your eyes were in desperate need of some cream, would you spend $39.50 on it? How about $66.00?

Bucket or pail?
Bag or sack?
Couch or sofa?
Comforter, duvet, or bedspread?
Where do you live?
As soon as my nails pass the 1.5 mm mark I can't type with them anymore and have to cut them. I saw this one chick at a grocery store with three inch nails typing away - how do you do it? And how do you wipe your bumhole efficiently with 3 inch scoops on your fingertips???
Can anyone recommend a decent sized tent that will be roomy enough for a family of 4 for less than $200?

dk/dc: what are you doing tonight?
Do you have an Iphone?
If so what model?
What do you like or dislike about it?
I am considering getting the Iphone 3GS and any information would be helpful.
I have Call of Duty (MW2, World at War, Modern Warfare), Bioshock, Unreal Tournament 3, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, and music games like DJ Hero, Guitar Hero, Rock Band, etc. I've also played and liked Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Turok, pretty much all the Final Fantasy games, and mostly any button-mashing fighting game you can think of.
The ones I can remember that I've tried and didn't like are Fallout 3, Metal Gear Solid 4, Rainbow Six Vegas, Assassin's Creed (the first one), Haze, TimeShift, and Viking: Battle for Asgard.
dk/dc: What weird habits do you have?
I tried Googling it but I keep getting things from the summer olympics.
I was just in public speaking class, and had a powerpoint up to give a speech. I was on the title slide, when AIM automatically reconnected (even though I'd signed out) and my away message popped up, which said "TEAM USA!!!!!! FUCK YEAH, AMERICA!!!"
aaand it took a good minute between realizing my error trying to get it to go away :(

(for those who don't know, a pleasure party is kind of like a mary kay/tupperware party but with adult toys, lotions, etc.)
I am having trouble managing my energy for the thousand essays I need to write.
The semester is over where I study and we have "vacations" until April. For my major this means that I'll be writing very long papers all this time until the new semester starts. So no vacations for me. The very problematic part of this is, apart from not having any free time (and apart from not having had any since I started university 3 years ago) that I dont seem to find the energy to do this. I wake up early and go to the library and I feel all the time like I am going to fall asleep on my paper.
So my question is: What can I do to boost my energy and help me cope with this?
I obviously cant do real vacations (the papers have to be handed in), I am already doing a bit of sport 2 times a week, and caffeine doesnt do anything for me.
If you don't care, what color is your hair?
"Starbucks has a specific retail dress code that governs clothing and personal appearance (e.g. no visible tattoos, facial piercing, or wearing of fragrances). The dress code can be made available at time of interview. Do you have any concerns about abiding by the Starbucks dress code?"
I have a tattoo on my wrist and a few facial piercings (eyebrow, lip, nostril. I also have my septum done but it can be hidden easily). Anyone know how strict that dress code actually is? The Body Shop has that as its official policy as well, but when I worked there just about everyone had visible tattoos and facial piercings, including the manager, so idk.

Favorite cuss word?
I NEED VALIDATION
I've had them in almost an hour and I want to claw my eyes out. How long should I give it before I take them out?
They gave me Acuvue 2 lenses. When they rechecked my eyes after I had them in for a few minutes, they doctor was like oh hey, btw, you have an astigmatism now. Shouldn't he have given me some of the lenses that are specifically for astigmatism???
I'm supposed to wear these for 2 weeks. I'm not sure I'm going to make it that long. He said something about giving me toric (sp?) lenses when I go back for my followup appointment.

when you like a guy and you're pretty sure he likes you, how often do you call/text? how comfortable are you with doing that?
i just can't get with it, apparently. everyone thinks i'm crazy because i can only call or text this guy a couple times a week and they're all "Man, when I like a guy I text him a lot." and i'm like "I just don't want to seem like a stalker or something." and my friend is like "You're kind of the opposite."
am i totally inept?

What is something that has blew your mind lately?
I've been reading up on North Korea. Up untill a few months ago I pretty much knew nothing about it aside from the general location. The stuff I've read is leaving me speechless, I had no idea at all what life was like there.
ETA - What's the last thing that made you feel really good?
Our store was raising money for a cancer charity last week. I went in on my day off to help out for a while. My boss tells me that the store raised £120, most of which was raised solely by me. Boss gave me a box of chocolates & put a big sign up in the staff room saying thanks. I got that warm fuzzy feeling!
