Where is it, if it isn't completely obvious from the picture?
Will you post a random one?
What's the weirdest thing you have in the room you're in right now?
What is your ideal boss like? / What is the ideal relationship between you and your boss? What does he or she do?
Srs and non-srs answers, obv.
Will you post a youtube video or a link to yours to see if anyone else has heard of it?
2. Pretend you are a student in grade school and tomorrow you have show and tell. What of your current belongings would you bring to show and tell? And why?

Imagine your spring break starts in sixteen hours. You have two options about what you can do:
A) You've been talking with your roommate and future roommate about going on a camping roadtrip for a month or so, but plans have never been laid out past the "Yeah, we should do this!" point. There were vague ideas about where you would be going, but NO campsite reservations/accommodations have been made. If this doesn't pan out correctly, you're spending spring break at your parent's house.
B) You talked to some friends earlier today that mentioned an extra spot in the beach house they're renting. Everything is planned and laid out. No battling raccoons at campsites, but you will upset your roommate(s).
Which do you choose? Reasons? Are you flaking out on the option A folks if you go with option B even though there were never any actual plans? Keep in mind, you're leaving on this trip in TWO DAYS and the wrath of your ROOMMATES is involved.
when was the last all nighter you had to pull? what was it for?
Alright, I worded this really bad.
pictures or links to your post are greatly appreciated! (:
i recently learned about blue holes.
My question is, Is it ok to buy the heels for myself?
What beverages do you enjoy in the morning?
She should say yes...YES?
EDIT-O-MATIC: Wassamatter....don't you trust her judgement??
How many men (or women) do you think would wait for you outside of your window? Would you come down if you saw someone attractive in the crowd?
Don't know or care, have you ever played double-dutch?
Yesterday I was stationary for a few hours while working and someone was running a pressure-washer outside, not far from where I was sitting. Some time later, (i.e. a few hours,) I was at home and had this persistent low-level hum in my left ear--to the point where I thought someone was playing music loudly a floor or two down, and I was getting the bass line through the walls (the hum seemed to throb, sometimes,) and I even went looking for who was playing that damn music; and there was no music. I checked all my appliances and the fridge-hum just wasn't the same, and though my allergies do sometimes plug my ears, it's never been anything like this. I cleaned my ears, thought it might dissipate overnight, and 24 hours later, it's still there.
Should I see a doctor/audiologist, or just wait it out (and for how long)?
I know some older couples who are..and cute old couples!
DK DC: are you ever sleep deprived enough that you slurr your words/feel drunk?
I am right now :/
I'm desperate to move into my apartment, but the seller's solicitors keep pushing things back.. They were certain I would be able to move in today, but yesterday rang to say it would have to be next Friday! Grrr.... It's annoying me that my solicitor has been pretty much ready for weeks, but we have been waiting for them! and they're the one with the property repossessed so should want to get rid asap!
What's the best exercise on wheels?
What is the one movie you can watch over and over and you will NEVER get tired of it? Spirited Away for me.
( Collapse )
EDIT: I didn't mean to imply it was a good movie, just that I enjoyed it, lol. Those are so not bedfellows in my book.
I have $500 for you. All you have to do is attend a party for 5 hours. All your friends, family and work colleagues will be there, plus anyone you may be romantically interested in.
There is a catch though. You have to attend and mingle for the full 5 hours reeking of a combination of stale cat urine, sweaty jock strap, hobo puke and baby poo. You will be required to hug everyone at least twice. Also you may not explain to anyone, ever, that you did this for money. If they ever bring it up you must act completely oblivious to it ever having occurred.
Would you do it?
If you answered no, but you would for extra, how much extra should I be
Have you ever said something and only realised after you said it that yes, it was out loud?
Yesterday I meant to call my ex a w***** (which he's had coming for a while, really) under my breath so that only the guy sitting next to me, who also hates him, could hear. Instead I said it and a moment later realised that everyone heard. Ex is still furious with me, though I appear to be something of a heroine amongst everyone else who was there, which is somewhat gratifying.
JESUS __________ CHRIST!
ETA: I like CATHARINE (or just about any female name) cause it makes no sense and adds to the lulz. You gotta be really angry to say something like that.
thunderflyer wins with, "Jesus H. Christ on Chocolate Covered Crutches!"
What's the best outraged question/exclamation you've ever heard someone say?
ETA2: l_a_d_y_l_o_v_e just reminded me: "NOW YOU WAIT JUST A BUSCUIT FLIPPIN' MINUTE!" is an old favorite.
"Son of a building block..." is a new favorite courtesy of shweetnettie13 and Mr. Potato Head.
"You've really steamed my broccoli!" is also a new favorite thanks to adhesive_dream. What a conversation that would be. Rofl.
Whose picture is there?
Well THAT was boring.....
What do you consider to be "middle age"???
Do you get annoyed by other spellings of your name? (IE, You're a Stephanie, but come across a Stefanie)
Do you think someone can look like their name? Or any name?
I do not like my given name, but I have a plethora of nicknames to choose from.
There are biblical spellings I don't like, but it's hard to hate on the original, y'know?
Yes. I believe some people just look like a name - Sometimes you'll hear someone say a name and you look in the room to try and see if it's the person who looks like said designation.
What is your favorite magazine or newspaper to peruse?
Should I watch the Grey Gardens documentary or film first?
Do you like tabouli?
If you drive, do you talk to (or scream at) other drivers? What do you say?
Did anyone else catch the series premier of Justified a few nights ago? I think I have a new favorite tv character. Between this and A Perfect Getaway, Timothy Olyphant has really been impressing me lately.
If you didn't, are there any shows you started watching this season (either new or new to you)?
So far I have been round a public garden, but that only took a couple of hours and didn't cure my restlessness.
What do you do to make yourself relax?
If you've ever lived in a dorm room/uni halls/a hotel for a long period of time, did you get the feeling of always wanting to be out of your room?
You win/come into an unexpected 1000 bucks.
Do you use that grand to pay off your debt sooner?
Or do you use that grand to buy something that you want really bad?
Bed Knobs and Broomsticks OHMYGODINSANE, i havent seen that movie in like 11 years!
I used to watch theis movie at least twice a week when i was a kid.
As a kid, did you have any movie that no matter how many times you watched it it never got boring?
Also what was your dream job as a little kid, I always wanted to either be a fairy catcher or a storm chaser.
During your senior year of high school, were you extremely excited to get out or sad and wanting to stay?
For instance, I just ate my way through the better part of a thing of edamame. Eughh haha.
(I found a tub of said spread in the pantry and all I want to do is eat it. With a spoon.)
Here's the question: Do I buy them and have them held at will call (I've never done will call through this venue, so I'm kind of iffy about it), or do I have them sent in the mail (the website says allow 10 days for mail delivery, and the show itself is in 12)?
I can't go to the venue itself to buy tickets (no car/transportation).
ETA: I can also pay an extra $1.25 to print them out now, but that just seems like a ripoff.
What about good books? I'm always on the lookout for good books.
The next book on my reading list is The Corpse: A History Has anyone read it? If so, what did you think of it?
Oh, and please god don't suggest Avatar as a movie.
However, and I'm not sure why this never occured to me till just a couple of minutes ago, being a big fan of Westerns since I was little...I think there's a much more pertinent question.
At least, I'm pretty sure nobody has asked this before.
Between Greedo & Han Solo, who 'drew' first?
How much $$$ should one have saved up before they move to another state?
DC/DK what's your fave thing about spring? :D
It's Friday afternoon. You have your last pair of contact lenses in, and they're dailies. You would like to be able to wear contact lenses on Monday afternoon. You have one more spare single lens left, in your right eye's prescription. But the one for the left eye would have to be re-used, if you are to wear lenses again on Monday. You'd only have to wear them for about an hour on Monday.
What do you do?
Is there a way to do this without asking for an eye infection? Can I just leave the left lens in some water until Monday and change the water twice a day until then? I'd open the little packet of the spare right lens and put the used left lens in there with it (because that'd mean it's in that lens fluid stuff), but then I wouldn't know which lens was which prescription. There's .25 between their prescriptions.
What are some good resume template sites?
I've googled, but I don't really know what's good and what's not :/, so I want some personal recommendations! (I've never needed a resume before, so I'm not experienced with them much, at least not since my high school careers class!).
What's your favorite job you've ever had?
Hi, I am a haircut
my hair currently is: [X] [X] It's not normally that fluffy/bumpy, I haven't done my hair in 2 days and it was windy.
Advice greatly appreciated.
ETA: I only want that style, not the colour. I plan on keeping my purple, though not dying again.
ETA Encore: THE ACTUAL QUESTION (Zomg drumroll ;D): Do you think I should get that haircut? Poll or comment.
don't say BMW...please
Would you break up?
Late breakfast/early lunch:
2 slices of Sara Lee Whole Grain White Bread
2 tbsp of Sunflower Butter (like PB but I am allergic to that so I use sunflower butter instead and they taste about the same)
1 tbsp of Apple Butter
1 cup of 1% Milk
1/2 pint of Strawberries
1 package of SMART ONES Three Cheese Ziti Marinara
1 cup of 1% Milk
1 1/3 cup of Green Beans (the frozen kind you steam in the microwave)
1 Quart of Turkey Hill Diet Green Tea w/ Mango
1 cup of water
1 One-A-Day Women's Multivitamin
Total Calories: Approximately 1100, maybe a bit over. I am on a diet and my limit is 1500 calories by the way, so I think I did well so far.
DK/DC: If you won $1,000,000,000 how would you spend it? After taxes are deducted, I would put most of the money that I get to keep in CDs, then the rest would go into my savings and checking accounts (to pay bills and stuff), I'd buy a vacation home in Japan and maybe one in Greece or Italy, and what's left after that would be for me to go shopping and traveling.
I've been asking TQC to help me make a lot of basic life decisions lately. What does this say about my life?
Tia is fucking around with her friend Ronald. Ronald is married and has two children. Tia lost her virginity to Ronald some years ago and this screwing around has been on and off again for year since then. Tia dated Ronald's cousin, Idiot, for a few months a while back and broke up with him because she "can't be in a monogamous relationship."
Recently, Tia sent a couple of us girls a text a week or so ago saying that his wife found out that they were fucking again because Ronald let her go through his phone. Wife goes up to Idiot and tells him what's going on. This hurts Idiot very badly because obviously, he still has feelings for Tia (God knows why). Now Tia wants to kick wife's ass for hurting Idiot.
If she tells us whatever drama is going on with this, what clever thing should I say that perfectly captures me thought of "You're stupid."?
DK, DC: Is it beautiful weather where you are? It's gorgeous in Corvallis, Oregon!
The current music scene
Which should I have for dinner tonight
What are you having for your next meal?
What else should I do today to make it better?
What are your plans this weekend?
So I need a nice relaxing/de-stressing night at home tonight. I already plan to take a nap, play mindless computer games like solitaire and hearts while watching shrek, and then to read for a bit and possibly watch the movie The Lucky Ones.
Any other ideas?
-What do you pray for?
Which one do you wish you understood?
Do you think violent games are a scapegoat created by the media to blame for this generations' violence?
I hate how people underestimate us, and assume just because we play things that involve shooting people may render us mass murderers ourselves. Sure, there are some nutcases which might take games too seriously - the same with any other form of entertainment (songs/films/etc.)
I sent one back asking, "Why what?" to get the reply, "I asked first!"
What the hell is he on about?
DK/DC What does the last text you got say?
Tonight there is an Ides of March dance. You have to wear a toga. I'm way into togas and it sounds like it could be fun but I can't dance and not many people tend to show up to these dances as there is no alcohol. What would you do?
a) Go to the dance, even though it will probably suck, even with the toga
b) Sacrifice your desire to wear a bedsheet in public and do something else
c) Wear a toga but just get drunk alone in your room
DK/DC: What historical article of clothing do you wish would come back in style?
My favorite subjects were Art and Computers, and my least favorites were Math, Language Arts, and P.E./Gym.
I wish they had Japanese language classes, but all they had was Spanish and French, and the two high schools I went to had German and Latin too. I had no interest in any of those so I didn't take Foreign Language courses except for Spanish in my 6th grade and 7th grade years and part of 8th (I switched schools that year because I moved out of state so I didn't have to take that class anymore) and that's only because Spanish was required at the schools I went to at the time.
Just out of curiosity, what do you think each one means?
4 I almost shit a curly worm
5 I shit a brick

Do you think that the first few seconds of Rod Stewart's - Maggie May sounds very similar to the 80's song by Phil Oakey and Giorgio Moroder, Together In Electric Dreams?
I'm about to leave for a birthday party with a bunch of cliquish girls who used to be my enemies in high school. I'm getting through this just telling myself that my friend wouldn't invite me if she didn't want me there, and maybe these girls have changed.
Tomorrow night, don't forget to push your clocks ahead one more hour before you go to bed. (If you don't go to bed, push them ahead at 3:00 Daylight Time so the new time will be 4:00 Double Daylight time).
What shampoo/conditioner do you use? Soap?
I don't want any hard core porn, but actual movies with a plot that have sex scenes.
Do you get hit on by members of the opposite sex?
Would you rather just be left to get hot and sweaty in peace?
My boyfriend has recently started snoring so loud. It is impossible to sleep in the same bed as it feels as though I'm sleeping next to a pneumatic drill. I've tried ear plugs and they dull it, but it's still loud enough to be an issue.
I NEVER wear tights or panty-hose, and tonight I'm going out in a short dress and weather says that bare legs are a no-go, but when I put my panty-hose on, they constantly slip and roll down making it look like I have a giant muffin top, as well as being highly uncomfortable. How does one avoid these problems????
What clothing brands are you wearing right now?
What are some of your favorite books (that weren't written by English or American authors)?
I recently finished reading Over the Edge of the World: Magellan's Terrifying Circumnavigation of the Globe and I'd like to find other books like that.
It's frozen up 4 times in the making of this post.

I made French's onion chicken for dinner (chicken breasts in an egg wash coated in French's onions) and now I'm not sure how to store the leftovers. Any suggestions?
What sort of OTC medicine should I make my boyfriend go buy to make my dry wheezy chest cough go away most effectively?
Or, what was the best thing that happened to you today?
Whilst I don't know him very well, my step-aunt and her husband have been really good at having me round for dinner weekly. (I'm at uni 200 miles away from home - 2 miles from step-aunts house).
I would feel rude turning up empty handed, though I know i've probably been invited for company for my step-aunt more than anything else. (Congratulations if you figured out my family dynamics!)
Tl;dr - distant relative's birthday on sunday, family are taking me on their outing, do I take a present? If so what is appropriate for someone I don't know very well who is older than me? (I'm a student so they'd be embarrassed if I got anything expensive)
would you recommend it?

I know that in Arabic it's generally referred to as a niqāb, or partial niqāb, but I think that term only applies when it's worn with the hijab and when the veil isn't see through.
Any ideas? Or is it just known as a partial face veil?
Things going well for you?
I'm being interviewed for a job as a Final Cut Pro editor for one of the biggest porn production companies in the United States, and they want to know my rates. I'm young and I've had about 3 - 4 years of experience professionally editing. I don't want to lowball myself and I don't want to ask for something ridiculous.
Also, how exactly did you go about it? Did you just walk in and ask if they were hiring, and if they said yes, handed them a resume, and if they said no handed them a resume and ask to please think of you in the future, or?
For those of you who have not procured a job this way, how did you get your job?
How awesome will it be if I get a job at the bakery that specializes in cupcakes?
ETA: Have you ever used "soap berries" or "soap nuts" to do laundry rather than conventional laundry soap?
Include in the cover letter your track record of performance, your desire to learn and your ability to overcome challenges.
I can't really think of what to put for my ability to overcome challenges. I've overcome personal and emotional challenges like dealing with a family member with cancer, parent's divorce, etc. but I highly doubt they want to hear about those.
What would you write if you were asked to address this in a cover letter?
What was the last thing you bought online?
Who is the first person you think of?
Who is the person telling you?
What is your favorite coin?
Do you think there's a socially accepted amount of time? If so, can it vary? Do you think society expects people to wait more or less while they're young? Longer if they expect to be in a "serious" relationship? I just wanna hear your opinions on the whole concept really.
what was the last DVD you watched?
For example, goldfish being mistreated (used as carnival prizes) and/or being cramped into bowls really bothers me, but my (non-aquarist) friends think that it's silly how worked up I can get over this.
Do you hear your hair growing?
